1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][CLAM] CLAMs, Proof-Of-Chain, Proof-Of-Working-Stake, a.k.a. "Clamcoin" on: June 25, 2018, 07:14:16 PM
I quite like the Clam project so I wanted to help secure the network so I bought 30k clams to stake with.  On average my node gets around 24 clams a day. The problem however is that I lose between 3-8 Clams/day again, they disapear shortly after I found them and they show up as 'Conflicted' in the transaction list.  So on bad days I lose about 1/3 of my yield which is pretty frustrating to say the least.  Any suggestions?

You lost out to other nodes that also mined the same block.  It's just one of those annoying things that PoS is infamous for.

Thanks for the reply bro.

So I lose 1/3 of the yield I'm 'entitled' to?  That's just terrible.  So I have to buy like a bunch of Computers that act as support nodes, 50 of them or something, so when I find a clam the other 49 (within the home network) immediately broadcast it at almost the same time to the outside.  And so if the outside competition has less nodes, I win the Clam.

So it seems like an armsrace for support nodes, I wish I knew this before starting this moneysink.  Somebody should put that info on the first page in the clam introduction.


The guy from Just-Dice probably knows this and has an army of support nodes running. So it's basically his coin and newbs like me can only lose their money/profits.  


    I don't believe your actually losing anything.  The block that ended up orphaned, will simply continue to stake at the same weight it had prior to the orphan.  Next check your system clock, and make sure it's synced to an accurate time source.  I don't think having extra nodes would end up helping you.  I believe once you get a stake, the block gets a time stamp.  The earliest time stamp wins.    

Thanks for the tip on checking the system clock, I'll check on that right away.


I added 4 support nodes, so I will get back with my findings coming days.  First impression seems I lose less today, but might be coincidence we'll see, I only just finished installing them as I prepared for this test a few days ago, took some time to install the clients. So it's too soon to draw any conclusions.  If they get time stamped, it shouldn't make any difference like you say.  

EDIT: well it seems I do lose 1/3 of my profit as the difficulty/my stake = find time (on average 24 a day, so when 8 disapear I lose right?)  As in the protocol itself indicates I should get 24 a day but I only get 16 because 8 get taken away, how is that not losing profit/losing my reward for help securing the chain?  I wouldn't bother if it's like 1 clam once in a while, but losing between 3-8 out of 24/day is not acceptable.

   You should get 24 valid stakes per day.  If you got 8 orphans, you should see 24 +8 or 32 transactions, of which only 24 are valid.  But this is just on average.  So I wouldn't look at just one day at a time. look at your average over a week, or 2, or a month.  That should show you closer to the 24 per day average.  I don't stake Clams anymore, but when I did I remember the daily average fluctuated quite a bit, but seemed to average out when you looked at it over the longer periods.   

   Let us all know if adding the nodes helped or not.

It also dependes on your weight ... then it is advisable to have blocks from 25,30K Hyp.

Ive blocks 16,03K Hyp. Weight at the moment 261K. Days to stake 44,01. Days to stake have been going up and down for days...
Should I do it all over again with 25K blocks OR should I just keep waiting? Any advice?


    What does 16,03K mean?  16 blocks of 3k hyp?  or you have 16.03K blocks(sorry the , is throwing me)?  How many blocks?  The "days to stake" is an estimate.  I stake several blocks a day, but according to coin control my best block has 55 days to stake.   so if you have more then 4-5 blocks I would leave them as is.  Actually I would leave them anyway.  If you hover over the mining indicator on the main panel, what does that show as an estimate?  Mine shows 5-8 hours.  That's a better indication for your total stake weight.

Technically, we aren't even really supposed to be talking about it at the devs request.  They don't want hype.  They want an actual working final product out before they even think about getting it listed all over the place.

So we wait.  And we say soon.  Soon...

Okayyyyyy, but it's on one of the multi-pools I use.  Started looking around to find out more and ended up here.  If they don't have an "actual final product" then there shouldn't be mining going on.

   Whats on the mining pool?  WBB or CHBT?  WBB was POW and could be mined, but it doesn't exist anymore.  CHBT is POS and can only be staked.  At least that's the way I understand it. 
Sounds like your mining pool is out of touch.

It started early this year, suddenly lots of orphanes at times 9 out of 10 rewards.
After try and error I was forced to block all incoming connections.

-system clock gets synced every 30 min.
-only POS coin that has this problem.

Anyone else got this problem ?



   I've only seen it when my clock is out of wack.  And it was generally 3-4 times more stakes then normal.  But all orphans.

it will drop again probabaly will go near about 650 sats on weekend


    I'll guess 1.2-1.5K in the next 2 weeks

Watch out for this pool, my coins have been confirmed and still not paid out for quite awhile now, and these jokers don't respond to Twitter or have a dedicated support line. I may have to resort to other methods.
Hello,

I'm sorry did you try our discord?  You PM'ed us and then right away posted this, I am also not showing any posts from you on the forum (unless we missed it).  All of our members know we pay and know we help always when they use the proper support methods.  Please PM us your wallet address and we will get you paid. 

Thanks,

     Is there an invite to your discord I'm just not finding?  Looked in the op, on your website, and your Twitter feed.  If it's there I'm not seeing it...

Hi! I have a question. In my account was 4 and 16989,05 HYP. I started POS mining and a couple of weeks later I got 1000 HYP. After that payment my 16989.05 + 1000 HYP split into 2 AND now I have 8994 and 8994 HIP. Why did this happen? I combine my coins to weight online? I'll take some screenshots, thanks.




   Go into the console in the wallet and type getstakesplitthreshold.  You can change that value with setstakesplitthreshold .  My understanding is, that would have to be smaller then 8994 to split your output.  I'm not sure if or what the default is. 

   This feature is nice to automagically prevent your blocks from becoming to large.     


I executed this command and came out this value:

{
"split stake threshold set to " : 2000
}

Do I need to change something? Thank you in advance.

    Thats the reason your output split.  If you have a target block size you can use that set command to set it to the target.  The blocks won't split until the resulting blocks are at your target.  Basically the blocks can grow to 2 X's the threshold. 

okay, thanks! If I want the blocks to be no more than 20,000 coins, do I need to make a command set 40,000 to have a split?

  It depends on what you mean by "I want the blocks to be no more than 20,000 coins"  Do you mean your staking blocks, or the result of splitting?  IE when the block is 20K do you want to split into 2 10K blocks.  Or do you what to wait till the main block is 40K and then split into 2 20K blocks.     In those cases you would set it to 10K or 20K, the results of the split.   The value is after you split.  40K is not the answer.  It's either 10 or 20K. 

  Personally I have a hard time remembering how this is supposed to work.  It would seem more logical to have the value to be the point at which a block would split. and not the result of that split.       

Yes, I need this option.:
"Or do you what to wait till the main block is 40K and then split into 2 20K blocks."
Easier for me to share and connect blocks manually, is there a command to turn off automatic splitting of coin?

   I don't see a way to actually disable it.  But...   "setstakesplitthreshold 999999" would disable it until you have a block of 2Million.

Bitcoin Cash payments have just been rolled out to ALL BitPay merchants! what do you think about? Is this good information?

Yes. One more stone being laid in the foundation of Bitcoin Cash. Bullish.

 I heard bit coin cash was created and funded  by the bankers as a way to take bitcoin off the throne, so they can manipulate the market more.

they can only manipulate bitcoin oh so much compared to this bit coin cash, bit coin cash is the bankers bitcoin

I think its true because coinbase is banker owned and they helped pump bitcoin cash

they are now getting sued, and yes you do owe the pumped up bit coin cash price due to market manipluation at coinbase

you know the same coinbase that locked the market when bitcoin crashed and the prevented people from buying in cheap or cut their loses.... how quickly we forget dont we?

https://www.moneycontrol.com/news/business/cryptocurrency/lawsuit-filed-against-cryptocurrency-exchange-coinbase-over-bch-insider-trading-2522923.html

The largest cryptocurrency exchange in the US has been hit by a class action lawsuit over alleged insider trading during the launch of Bitcoin Cash(BCH) on its platforms.

The lawsuit filed with the US district court for the northern district of California on March 1 alleges that Coinbase customers lost millions as the exchange tipped off its employees and a few customers about the impending launch of bitcoin cash trading before the formal announcement. This allowed them to trade bitcoin cash earlier resulting in a sudden spike in its price, it further says.

Bankers will not like Bitcoin Cash as it is more difficult to be centralized as the block size is bigger and people can use the network more directly.

Actually a larger blocksize naturally makes it more centralised because full nodes become much more expensive to run so if the network does become big enough then only larger corporations and banks will be able to afford to run full nodes this puts the power in their hands

   How does running a full node put more power in your hands?  I run several full nodes, and I don't feel very powerful.  In a POW coin the miners have to run full nodes, but I don't see the advantage of Joe average running one.  Does it really help secure the network?

Could you please Pm me to let me know the issue you are experiencing?  The pool looks to be moving fine.  We are searching for a new coin to add that will add our high profitability like seen in the past.

Thanks.

I agree with the token setup.

  its not that hard. (assuming ccex follows correctly)

    Token given 1:1 for xvg.    ok with me?

You can trade your token for btc if you want.  at any price.  price is now 80sat...  why would you sell it??

 they are saying they will buy it at market value.    So DONT SELL IT BELOW MARKET VALUE.

Put your 'sell' mark at market value.   atm around 600sat.

   the only ones that are gaining, are the ppl BUYING at such low numbers.

not that difficult a concept to understand.

  (again, assuming they buy at market value)

Best advice.  everyone PULL your sell order.


   ----Problem i see.   how to prove that they are buying ANY of the tokens with btc, until someone
lists at the proper amount.

 ie: list at 600.  if they buy it like they say they will....  

its kind of a mess.

   im not defending ccex. i am explaining the Token idea.

I dont like ccex ...too slow.

i have some coins in ccex.

  I inferred or assumed, they would be exchanging the tokens 1:1 with real XVG.  The big questions is how soon.  Could grab a bunch of them and make a killing.  Or be a new kind of bag holder.  I've already gotten tokens from other exchanges, and that didn't end well.  This could be different, the amount of BTC is not very large, so the pay back time should be relatively short.  

  Just found https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=418700.msg31517864#msg31517864   I stand corrected.  (Guess I assumed).  This means their out to screw everybody.  Do you think they will be buying once the token price is greater then the real price?    They really should be buying XVG and exchanging for the tokens.  Not just buying the tokens.

How Does the Lightning Network Stack Up Against Its Biggest Competitors?

Bitcoin has longtime and well-known scaling problems, with fees last year spiking to over $30 on average for a transaction and confirmations taking hours, sometimes days. The transaction load of the network topped out at around 400,000 per day, capped by the one megabyte block size. In order to scale past that level without increasing the block size, Bitcoin has looked to a new technology called the Lightning Network to scale the network off-chain past the limitations of purely on-chain capacity. Here we examine Lightning, and compare it to other payment-focused cryptocurrencies taking the on-chain scaling approach.



Excellent comparison...
