1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] Ethereum: Welcome to the Beginning on: September 07, 2017, 06:46:22 AM
Can Chinese people order foreign ICOs?

I think they go from same route as Americans do. Governments need to learn that they can't stop anything on the internet.
ICO madness will never be over in short term. There's still too much money to be made.
I am wondering if the prohibition is only of organizing ICOs or also of participating on foreign ICOs.

I doubt government of China would be able to stop their citizens organizing or participating on foreign ICOs. If they can't organize their ICOs in the country they will do it in foreign land. And the ICO frenzy will ceratainly continue.
True! Chaina ICO ban is temporary. Become difficult to control all over the citizens. ETH out off these list. Though, ETH literally started dropping right after this news. ETH pretty momentum, time the price going to rise.
I've heard  the news that the chinese will try to release the figure that to be the regulation for the icos. The ico will never be prohibited, and remember ethereum is not an assets like another shit coin.

Hey all!

It's been awhile since I wrote here, so it's time for a little update.

First of all, I apologize the domain is down, site should be up again any day now.

Now that we got that out of the way, let me tell you a little story. As you know, I have operated ScryptPool for quite some time, about two years!

It has been quite a journey and a lot of things learned. Which is why this latest maintenance has been going on for a long time as well.

I decided to take everything down with a notice of 3-6 months downtime, so that I could reorganize my infrastructure and allow it to scale in all directions.
This was not an easy task, and it involved quite a bit of research, trial and error and hardware investments. Those were some very long days.

Lessons learned:

1.) Things break
Everything from software to hardware, and when things break, they become unavailable and other problems start to happen as a result.

2.) Power failure
As a hobbyist, I'm not able to give the pool power redundancy at this point. (*)

3.) Software failure
Wallets crashes, hangs or lags terribly. What if I could spawn a new instance, and aid that wallet, seamlessly. (*)

4.) Scheduled tasks
Even though crontab is quite a powerful scheduler, it simply isn't enough for a system like this, where a lot of things are going on at the same time. (*)

5.) Management
A system like this is very complex, it consist of many small tasks that can stop or break. I spent several hours night after night fixing tasks that had failed. (*)



* The solution *
Micro cloud. Now what the heck is a micro cloud ? Perhaps it's not the correct term. *shrugs*

To me it's a stack of microcomputers that are providing CPU and RAM in favor to a cluster.

What the heck man ? I know right..

Research begun, and after a few months it was time to take theory to practice.

I took 4x raspberry pi2's and arranged them in a small cluster (depicted in the link below).

RBPi's: https://twitter.com/sioghi/status/777919980163723264

Although not very pretty it was fully functional.

At this stage the total resources was 4 CPU's (16cores) and 4 GB of RAM across 4 nodes.
The cluster technology was still unstable and depended on 3rd party modules and very hard to configure and expand.

A few more months passed, spending night after night doing research and test deploying a couple of wallets in the test-cluster and messing around with scheduling and isolation (Shit's gotta be secure!). The containerizing software matured and the features from the 3rd party modules became native.. It was finally time to notch it up a bit.

I ripped the test-cluster apart and ordered new parts...

Now we wait... and wait... some parts arrive and I jump with joy, not really, because I still had to wait on more parts, screws, cables, etc. and wait, and wait some more and finally...

I had enough parts to start putting them together: https://twitter.com/sioghi/status/792047122682155008

Those are 12 compute-nodes, all raspberry pi3's with a total of 12 CPU's (48 cores) and 12 GB of RAM. Each also have a 16 GB class10 micro sdcard to host the OS and node-agent.

Having that said, there are still more things to be done.

You can follow me on twitter @sioghi

I tweet about all kinds of cool cloud computing related stuff.

All the best.

Hello users!

I need to take the pools down for extensive maintenance to bring ScryptPool to a whole new level.

Downtime will start 2016-07-01 and will last for 3 to 6 months!

Website and chat will be online during downtime but mining will not work.


Below is a simplified action plan:

* Stratum will be taken offline, please set up backup pools (Check out http://hashnova.com/) for your workers to minimize mining downtime.

* Wallets will be upgraded rescanned and reindexed.

* Everyone will be asked to cash out their coins, I want to see 0 balance on everyones accounts.

* Our entire infrastructure will be torn apart and our new fysical and logical infrastructure will be built.

Important:

Make sure you have addresses specified for every currency, and set them to daily payout.
Any balance remaining in a wallet after termination will be considered as a donation to the pool.




What is the meaning of all this ?

To serve you with a high quality pool we have done alot of research and testing, and come to the conclusion that our current system just isnt good enough.

There are simply too many design flaws that prevents us from scaling further, which is why you see wallets drop out of sync, drop connections, fork etc.


Best regards,
Bejjan

Anyone know if it's at all possible to compile the miner for Raspberry ?

I have alot of Pi2's that could potentially yield some coins :-)

I had GLD coins! Where did my coins? Why today you shut me access to my account?
Shit! You shut me access and stole all my coins! I love you in the ass I will be!

1) The fundraiser has nothing to do with your account on the pool.
2) I am quite tired of all your profanity, would you like me to share your emails with the world ?
3) I blocked the accounts as a security measure, as the messages delivered in the chat in your name was of such nasty quality I really thought your account was compromised. I see now though, that it was you afterall.

I have unlocked both your accounts.

Withdraw your coins from the pool, and go somewhere else, you are making my other users upset.

Beijan I have sent an email. I have just came accross today that the site has been taken down.
I still have coins in my accounts that I have not withdrawn. Can you please respond to this. I want my coins back.

Please follow our process at https://www.scryptpool.com/novaexchange

They have announced from long time that the site has been hacked and the dev ask all members to withdraw their balance , why you stil waiting ? , I hope the dev can help you because there was a lot of missing balances

I think he was referring to the "An error occured, the incident has been reported" message on scryptpool. Stratum uses alooooot of db connections and sometimes it runs amok spawning connections and causing db server to refuse new connections. I sorted that out earlier today.

I'm out of country for work until tuesday so have very limited time to reply. Please be patient.

Best regards,
Bejjan

What is the current progress? After refunding all users, do you have plans to relaunch the exchange? Make sure you follow and confirm all security measures before relaunch.

Hi,

Progress can be tracked here: https://www.scryptpool.com/novaexchange

Please allow us time to collect the missing funds. We are working hard on compensating everyone.

For everyone that already sent in their claim requests, you are not forgotten.

I will be mostly unreachable for the coming 7 days due to work travels.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Best regards,

Hey, is this the refund against your ESP trade? Did you refund your ESP?

No, this was not a refund sent to me, this was a refund sent from the fundraiser wallet by me, to a user that was proven eligible for a refund.

Please note that each case is different, and Novaexchange must verify before any refund can be paid.

The fundraiser focus on the three infected markets: BTC, LTC and ESP.

If you are missing anything from Novaexchange, check out the fundraiser, we will help you out when your claim checks out.

Hope that clears any confusion :-)


Best regards,
Bejjan

Hi Dev,

I have downloaded and installed the Espers wallet and this is my experience.

The installed files does not really belong in data/Roaming, only the user specific data (blockchain, wallet.dat etc) should be there.
(See http://www.rapidee.com/en/environment-variables for suitable ENV-vars)

The launcher does not work for me (Windows 7 Enterprise) and I had to dig around to find the actual Qt-wallet, (yea, I found them in data/roaming).

I also tried the sgminer but it failed, that is probably due to dependencies for different graphics cards. In my case Intel HD4000 just as a FYI Wink

The cpuminer from suprnova works like a charm, and I'm currently bashing out between 25-45KH/s (Yay!)

I just wanted to share my experience , so dont take this as criticism Smiley
