Hey Frozen-Miners and Frozen-Users,

we're less than a day from hitting the block 77777 after which you need to have updated your Frozen! In a recent getpeerinfo I still see many entries with wallet version 1.0.0, I recommend to update *now*!

=== snip:

Starting with block 77778 the block reward dips from 50 FZ to 25 FZ and decreasing. Mining with the old Frozen-release v1.0.0.0 will lead to orphan blocks, you should upgrade very soon to the latest release v1.1.0.6.

Resources for Frozencoin-Sources and binary Frozen-Windows wallet:

Saw this as well -- 10 out of 24 nodes connected to me are on 1.0.0!

So I've been mining for about 6 hours now and no blocks. Using two Sapphire 7950's. I just noticed, in the command box, I'm showing:

Speed:  5s: 2.70MH/s

2.70MH/s is about the average 5s speed, but why is Speed: remaining blank? Is that normal?

And so far 0 accepted, 0 rejected, and 0 hardware errors. I know I'm kind of late in the game and difficulty is up there now, so is that normal or should I see something by now? What is the average number of blocks I should see every 24 hours?

Here's my command line:

smelter -o http://localhost:18450 -u 1 -p x -w 256 -g 2 -i 60 -a F8yQzna8fo3Vf33NPTF24A3MXKMUjveJxM

Do I have anything wrong there? I think the only thing I changed in the command line was -g from 1 to 2 and -w from 64 to 256. I have confirmed username and password in command line matches that of my client config file.

Downloaded GPU miner from OP.

Edit:

Switched on debug mode, and getting a lot of this between the hash reportings:

Share hash above the target
Found something... nCandidates==1
Pool::SubmitSolutions() vWork.size()==1
Share hash above the target

Also seeing a lot of "Discarding stale work" messages. All normal?

Excuse ignorance - first time mining with smelter, or this algo for that matter.
Long story short: smelter sucks. Really, it's that simple. It's alpha software that takes 10% of mined coins, plus I'm not at all convinced it's actually fully non-GPL code. Certainly it's using stuff like JSON libraries, but whatever. Anyway, the dev only had access to Radeon HD 5800/6900 hardware it seems, and basically smelter is tuned for VLIW4/VLIW5 architectures. It will run on newer GCN cards, but it won't run very well. I found that once difficulty was more than around 1000, mining with GCN didn't make much sense. At present, I have only one system doing GPU mining on Frozen, because it has a couple 5800 series cards and seems to do reasonably well -- even my dual 6970 system doesn't find many FZ blocks at 5MHash, where the dual 5800 at 5MHash usually finds about the right amount compared to my 8.8MHash of CPU mining. Add in the lack of pool support, and smelter just isn't worth much IMO.

When I posted it was on top at both Coinwarz and Coinchoose. HC is now mining Anoncoin (ANC) with is ~18th on the list. Maybe they know something we dont?
Maybe lol...  or maybe it's not in our rotation?  It's usually pretty consistent when I check, which I'll admit isn't that often.  I really don't care what they do as long as they keep up the results they have had thus far  Grin
I think part of the answer to "what to mine" is a matter of volume. One person mining an alt-coin can expect to sell coins mined at a reasonable price (looking at current exchange prices). If you throw 1GHash of mining power at one of the alt-coins, however, you will mine a lot of the specified alt-coin. So then you need to look at the market depth for the coins, and if coin 1 has a bid of 1 BTC at the current price while coin 2 has 0.0001 BTC followed by a drop of 20% or more to the next bid... well, a large mining pool wouldn't necessarily want to go after that coin.

Put another way: choosing what to mine is often a case of recent past history as well as trade volume.

fz.coinmine.pl is up
You can mine on coinmine right now, but you cannot access the web pages thanks to DDoS (or possibly just poor design of front-end to site?)

@Block_Erupter, if the exact number of Fz is 7,777,777 then please edit the first post and erase the "million"
While we're editing, if there's no "minimum 1FZ per block" then we need to remove that as well -- otherwise there will continue to be 1 million FZ per year perpetually!

I think the real reason FZ is dropping is that the site is down. Who trusts a coin where the main site has gone offline three or four times in under three weeks? It makes it harder to find information for sure!

Another issue is the crappy GPU miner (smelter) that uses open-source code (but says it doesn't) with proprietary stuff and then siphons off 10% of your mined coins to the creator of the program. Well, that wouldn't be so terrible if the miner didn't suck so bad in other ways, like not supporting pooled mining (stratum), not running properly on GCN, basically only working well on my 5850/5870/6950/6970 as far as I can tell, etc. My GPUs are all mining scrypt because smelter is such trash. The code needs to be open sourced if it's ever going to be useful.

Selling FZ in 1K lots at 0.0875BTC per 1000 FZ. I can do up to 5000 FZ. I'm willing to entertain counter offers but will likely hold if I can't get my asking price. PM if interested.

Not sure if this has been reported or not but a lot of people can't change there auto payment address since it is still showing the hackers address.

Shame it happened really hope you guys/girls are not working to much over xmas.



+1

Yep - cant change my address back to my correct one.  Will not accept the change back to my address.  This needs sorting before autopayment is switched back on, otherwise the hacker is going to get a massive dump of coins when autopayment is switched back on!!
While the security breach is obviously a problem, I'm quite sure the Hashco.ws people are smart enough to not turn on auto-payments until they've removed the rogue address from all accounts. Either mine elsewhere for a while, or just sit tight for a couple days.
88  Other / Alternate cryptocurrencies / Re: [ANN] [FZ] Frozen | CPU and GPU Mining | No-Premine | on: December 17, 2013, 04:04:24 AM
I thought with a "How to mine FZ with a GPU" thread would have made this clear? (Not that we can access the forums for Frozen yet....)

Depending on the GPU, it's anywhere from 3X (7970) to 5X (6970). It's not like it's super easy to mine with GPUs, and as stated smelter.exe doesn't seem to like the higher difficulty. Where on Bitcoin GPU was about 50X as efficient as CPU and Litecoin it's maybe 15X as efficient (20X with R9 290X), Quark and Frozen it's only 3-5X as efficient. Actually, "efficient" isn't accurate, as a GPU using 150W is about 3X as fast as a CPU that uses half that.

Using 20 systems, I mined ~30K Frozen in five days. But TheMightyX only bought I think 4K -- others bought lots more, and I still have over 5K that I'm holding for the time being. I've actually switched most of my GPUs back to LTC as FZ mining with them can be very flaky. YMMV.
89  Other / Alternate cryptocurrencies / Re: [ANN] [FZ] Frozen | CPU and GPU Mining | No-Premine | on: December 17, 2013, 02:54:20 AM
Just a general comment/question since the Frozencoin.org site remains down:

Is anyone else having issues with GPU mining of FZ at the increased difficulty level? I had a system doing 5MHash/sec that at difficulty 500 seemed to be getting around 15 blocks per day. Today, I think it has found two. Best guess is that somehow smelter.exe is not working well at higher difficulty, and is somehow wasting effort. A tripling of difficulty should have resulted in 1/3 the block rate, but I'm more like 1/10 (or less on other systems). CPU mining on the other hand continues to go okay -- my systems (about 20 of them) are still generating close to 1.5K FZ per day, which is scaling pretty well with difficulty.

So basically, what I'm saying is that smelter and FZ don't look to be working properly now that we're at 1500+ difficulty. Also, AFAICT smelter doesn't work with stratum mining pools? So it's doubly useless. I think the smelter version that's being used for Frozen is different from the Quark version, which might explain the problem. And finally, despite claims to the contrary, I'm pretty sure smelter is using a fair amount of GPL licensed code. Maybe I missed something, but is it okay to have a program that has half of it's libraries GPL and then charge 10% of all mined FZ (or QRK) for it? It really needs to go open source, and more importantly it needs some better devs to handle things because right now it's very flaky.

Another pool has been added to the main topic.

Whats the ETA on the site being back up?

probably be 2-3 hours. Maybe more maybe less
FTFY. Seriously, it's killing the value of FZ, especially in light of the general market downturn of the day.
91  Other / Alternate cryptocurrencies / Re: [ANN] [FZ] Frozen | CPU and GPU Mining | No-Premine | on: December 16, 2013, 11:44:52 PM
Currently have 5K FZ for sale, asking 25 LTC or BTC equivalent.

Why so much? Several reasons.

1) Difficulty is now high enough that my mining rates are plummeting. In another week I will probably be putting all of my machines back to directly mining LTC.
2) Potential to be listed on an exchange soon means price may suddenly jump 5X or more.
3) Drop in value of LTC/BTC.
4) About 1/3 as many FZ ever as there are current QRK, and QRK is valued at $0.12; I expect FZ to hit $0.50 before the end of 2014.
5) Desire to keep mined FZ vs. sell for current profits.

So, if you're interested, PM me. I will transfer 1/2 of coins first, receive LTC/BTC for that half, then transfer second half.

There are 247Million QRK. There will be 7M Fz. Thats 1/32 as many, not 1/3, making it much more rare. Also QRK will continue to generate every year and Fz will be done after the last block is mined.
Oh, in that case, yeah -- much higher prices. I had 77 million in my head. :-)

I heard about this recently and decided to give it a try. The profitability charts looked really nice, for example. Anyway, here's my 24-hour review of Hash Cows vs. Litecoin. I'm going to keep it going for another day, but so far things aren't looking all that good compared to other mining options.
95  Other / Alternate cryptocurrencies / Re: [ANN] [FZ] Frozen | Super secure hashing | CPU mining on: December 12, 2013, 08:55:37 PM
Has anyone actually sold any and if so at what price?
I have had one buyer at 1LTC per 1K FZ. I'm still waiting for another transaction to go through.

I'm sure there are a bunch of "addnode" lines that aren't important/useful right now, but whatever -- it's running. Problem I'm getting now is with having multiple PCs connect to this client. I have eight that are working fine, but I can't seem to get more than that. I'm running with the following command line parameters:

Code:
frozen-qt.exe -server -maxconnections=250 -rpcthreads=8

Is rpcthreads somehow limiting the number of connections? Default is 4 I think, and before changing that to 8 I was having issues with more than 4. However, "threads" usually means CPU cores or something, which is a bit confusing. I'm going to bump up to 16 and just see what happens, but if anyone else is having this same problem and knows the fix, pass it along. I'm also going to try removing the extra rpcallowip lines and just go with rpcallowip=192.168.1.* and see if that works.

Update: rpcthreads appears to be the solution. Also, I'm getting a crash of the frozen-qt client every time I tell it to quit, which is a bit of an irritating bug. Now I just need some way to monitor my collective hash rate for FZ mining! Hahaha....

I am back guys.

I fixed the email & underscore errors: pull the latest version and `npm install` to get it working.

(Thanks avert for the email fix suggestion: implemented it the same way. For underscore: they removed a function I was relying on so I am now shifting towards lodash)

I'll check the code fixes posted asap and merge it in. Remember guys: Pull requests are always welcome!


'npm install' errors out on me.
