BFGMiner only supports Bitcoin period.

Check README on solo mining...

BFGMiner can be compiled for Android, as pointless as it may be
4  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: libblkmaker - still up to date? on: November 13, 2017, 06:23:33 PM
The libblkmaker hasn't been updated in the last 3 years. Is it still up to day with respect to recent protocol developments?

Latest commit 5e409f2  on Dec 1, 2016

But a non-listening node will not serve SPV nodes will it?
Why is this relevant? SPV nodes are harmful to the network, so serving them isn't helping the network.

Because SPV nodes are the only realistic way of having users be able to self verify on a mobile device.
SPV doesn't self-verify. It blindly trusts.

But not even listening nodes necessarily serve SPV nodes. That's an additional feature called "BLOOM"..

I don't generally support altcoins, but if you want to pay me to investigate it, please get in touch on IRC (I expect this to need real-time interaction).

What software are you using for the node? Not seeing anything obvious in the log...

Was this ever released?
Sorry, I ate it before it was released. Delicious, though...

Will there one day be a possibility to support sha256 through gridseed miners? At the moment it only supports scrypt.
If you write the code.

I am facing this issue 'user work with lower difficulty than device supports', what should I do. Anyone please.
Set your pool difficulty higher.
12  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: [ANN] Bitcoin PoW Upgrade Initiative on: June 29, 2017, 02:19:10 AM
I've started a GitHub repo specifically for a possible emergency PoW change hardfork.

https://github.com/BitcoinHardfork/bitcoin

While I understand this thread works under the assumption that a PoW change will be done unconditionally, and this code can possibly be used for such a purpose, please note that it is being developed it from a strictly emergency-use-only standpoint, since the community has not rallied around the PoW change idea at this time.

I would appreciate any review and/or contributions others can provide.

The repository does not intend to select an algorithm until such time as a PoW change is needed.
For this reason, the code is being designed such that the algorithm is configurable.
Therefore, please feel free to contribute new PoW algorithm options.

I forget the exact words used, but an analogy along the lines of "Going to an abandoned house and placing money in a dresser drawer" was made when I was going over the miner addresses that had been inactive both on Eligius and the blockchain for multiple years.
Aside from the specific matter, it sounds like the lawyer does not grasp how Bitcoin works. Addresses are only ever used by one sender (and normally should only be used for a single transaction), so their activity level is directly related to whether Eligius is sending bitcoins to them. They should never be used for anything else. So if that was the only factor, I would say they should be assumed to still be active - there is no comparison to an abandoned house, since there is no basis to think they have been abandoned at all.

Just for future reference, or in case anyone else encounters a similar situation...

Here's a pretty neat tool in case you haven't come across it.

That's missing all the non-listening nodes.

Representing BFGMiner and Bitcoin Knots, I officially declare these projects to hold the following positions:

  • Politically support Segwit and BIP148
  • Oppose BU's "emergent consensus" and tothemoon's Segwit-incompatible extension block idea

Hey guys, I have an old Eligius url and my password but I can't load the URL. How do I get into my account? I don't remember my address, just password. Any help? Thanks.
No, you don't. Eligius has never had passwords of any kind.
17  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: How is it possible to measure the amount of nodes that are just "listening" ? on: May 28, 2017, 05:42:57 PM
My understanding is that the chart by Luke is also showing nodes that do not accept incoming connections...
In other words: Nodes that are only listening and do not forward transactions and blocks.
You have that backward. Listening nodes are that ones that do accept connections.
Also, whether a node is listening or not is entirely unrelated to whether it forwards transactions or blocks.

Those listening nodes still need to connect to the network. They usually, on first start, will connect to a DNS Seeder and ask it for some nodes to connect to. Generally these nodes are ones that have high uptimes and high bandwidth. The seeder will also record some information about the node that asked it for data in case it is a listening node so that it can send nodes to connect to that node as well. So there are then two ways to get information about non-listening nodes; run a DNS seeder, or operate a high uptime, high bandwidth node that gets lots of connections.
DNS seeding uses DNS because the server typically never sees the actual IP querying it. Running a DNS seed does not really get any useful information.
The data used for the DNS seeder (and also part of the data for my stats) is collected by crawling the Bitcoin network directly. Anyone can do this.

Luke-Jr when we can expect full functionality on Eligius pool ?
No idea. Still haven't heard anything from wizkid057.

Is anyone else minting new coins or just Elig?
P2Pool?
