401  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [ANN] Stratum mining protocol - ASIC ready on: August 30, 2014, 01:25:13 AM
Few questions as I'm doing some heavy work with a custom stratum pool.

First off, is mining.set_extranonce being officially supported? If so, is cgminer going to be officially implementing this? I know bfgminer does currently support it.
cgminer doesn't support most things, just the minimum necessity for specific use cases.
Generally, you shouldn't need mining.set_extranonce, though.

Will this compile on cygwin?
I don't regularly test it, but it did at one point.
Very recently, git has some changes that could interfere with that, so if you have any issues, please let me know.

Sounds about right. Falls under the consistent mining portion of my previous explanation.  Consistent being 24/7 for multiple months, IMO.

does cgminer restart every hour affect profit on Eligius apart from apparent 10-15 seconds no hashing time it takes for a restart? i.e. is it considered a pool hop, do I get less reward than if I would not restart?
I ask this because this is only way I seem to be able to keep my 12 hour AVG up on my lemon S3.
Eligius does not penalise pool hoppers, so no.

Can that thing display the current eligus hashrate and block times? That's what I want on my wall.
Haha, no reason it couldn't! Cheesy

my concern is where did you obtain your windows copy of bfgminer that has gpu mining built-in. For the longest time now it was a default to leave out of compilation.
That's just CPU. Official Windows binaries are compiled with GPU and have it enabled by default for scrypt.

Please just ignore blockchain.info. It's right this time (I think), but in general it's almost entirely misinformation.

Brainwallets are dangerous if using simple passwords, but using a more complex password, for example: enfjakn/(&/gfjhbafnmjknHGV7&456DED$∑∑"∑%!!!/())/OJNDJKNJDK«®+`P should be secure enough.
Not likely. Humans are a terrible source of entropy.
Anything you come up with that you think seems random, a computer can guess easier than actually trying to find it randomly.
409  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Multisig Addrss UTXO spent (hacked) on: August 25, 2014, 06:56:56 PM
I did use extremely simple passwords. I guess he just brute forced the private keys, generated the Multisig address and if it contained UTXO sent them to his account.
It's pretty easy, and he can attack all multisigs at once.
This is why brainwallets are the dumbest idea ever...
410  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: BF1 USB miner - MuM 3.3.4 on: August 24, 2014, 04:14:20 PM
My Red BitFurys are not recognized by MuM 3.3.4 BFGMiner 4.7.0. I've tried MuM's Scan Hardware but they don't get picked up. Win7 Device Manager sees all of them, e.g. Bitfury BF1 USB Miner (COM100). Anything I can try? TIA
These units tend to crash if they're probed for anything else, so you need to make sure you don't use -S all (or any other -S <driver>:all), and do use -S bigpic:all
To un-crash them, a power cycle is needed first.

Don't confuse the website with the pool. I don't see any reason to be concerned.

Because you were paid.

blockchain.info is showing 3 blocks in last 6 hours:

but Eligius stats home page shows two:

is this blockchain.info not showing correct info or is it Eligius stats page, regarding block:

?
blockchain.info is nearly entirely misinformation in general, and is better off ignored.

Should we create a Cryptocurrency Mining Hardware Manufacturer Association? or some other rearrangement of words that can produce a pronounceable acronym?
What would be the point?

If the amount I simply will never get back in shelved shares exceeds 5% then it would have made more logical sense to mine straight pps at 5%.
This is true, if you trust the PPS pool to take on that risk and not run off with the bitcoins...
Are there any PPS pools left?

Of course luck is simply that, luck. However given that bitcon is a true no house edge system then there must be 50% of the people as "winners" to offset the 50% as "losers".
Not quite. Stale blocks (which are the only reason shelved shares won't reach 0%) are wasted hashing on the network. So nobody "wins" there.

Actually I never thought about this but: Do shelved shares "depreciate" in value as difficulty goes up, or are they paid at the value they had in terms of finding a solution when they were mined?
They're counted as a percentage of block subsidy. So they're paid based on the original difficulty, but once the block subsidy halves, they lose half their apparent value also.

It's because I popped back in. Now let's see if I can pick up that 5% of shelved shares that's been sitting out there for a few months. Speaking of which, any way to figure out the bitcoin value of one's shelved shares?
You can calculate it from the percentage, but that's a meaningless number.

Ok time for a good comment, the luck gods like us 14 blocks in the last 24 hours
Heathen! This is why we have bad luck!

418  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [Guide] Dogie's Comprehensive RockMiner R-Box Setup [HD] on: August 22, 2014, 06:14:09 PM
can anyone explain why i have a coinbase address showing up on BFgminer for a pool that is not in the conf file or bat file?

BFGMiner automatically configures itself to failover to solomining if your specified pool(s) go down.
You'll find the coinbase address in question in your Bitcoin Core wallet.
If you really don't want this (why?), you can disable it with --no-local-bitcoin

The following will be posted on the Eligius, BTCGuild and P2pool threads.

How willing are the pool operators to implement this? Is it hard? Any downsides? Please discuss

My position is that every periodic payment should be done using deterministic key pair generation.  Of course this includes all mining payouts.  The way this would work is that instead of generating a normal private/public key pair and giving the Bitcoin address of the public key to your mining pool for payout you would generate an extended private/public key pair and give the extended public key to the mining pool.

An extended public key contains within it the first public key and information on how to generate an entire sequence of public keys that correspond to the same key pair sequence that is generated by the extended private key.  So the mining pool would send your first payment to the first public key, your second payment to your second public key, your third payment to your third public key, etc.

Meanwhile your client can generate the first private key that corresponds to the first public key, the second private key that corresponds to the second public key, etc. so you can claim/spend the BTC when you are ready.

This way every single periodic payment can be sent to a unique public address.  Cool, right?

However, I do not know of a single pool that supports this payment mechanism.  I do not keep up with all the various mining pools having given up mining at the end of the GPU mining era myself.  So, if there is a pool that supports this please let me know.

All miners should demand this from every pool they use and only use pools that support this mechanism.
This has been planned for Eligius for a while.
Things are just slow moving lately.
420  Bitcoin / Hardware / Mining manufacturer tech guidelines on: August 22, 2014, 01:18:06 PM
I've started a wiki page with advice for mining manufacturers when producing new mining hardware.
It's just a first draft at this point, but addresses many of the more common mistakes hardware has been released with in the past, as well as suggests ways all current hardware could be improved on.

Contributions are welcome, of course. If you do not already have a wiki account, feel free to post your suggestions on this thread, or request your wiki account be given edit privileges on the wiki subforum.
