Here I am, after a short weekend hollidays. Damn, it was great... Cool

And what's happening here?
Well, again, it's happening what we expected to happen since we began to draw the future of this coin. Delivering quality is paying off.

Step by step, day after day, Bitmark is climbing up to the place where it belongs. And this is just the beginning... The community keep motivated and a lot of work is beeing done regarding both the technical aspects of the currency aswell the getMarked reward system and the adoption process. I'm really glad that all the efforts beeing made are already giving interesting results - solid and trusty results.

It's also good to see how Bitmark, without much noise, without promotion campains, without spotlights, is getting the attention from a lot of new players. Everyday new investors, miners and traders are approaching and jumping into the boat, some with full conviction that Bitmark is the currency we all have been waiting for, some others, still observing, still skeptical, seeking for the good and the bad news, what's going on? should I jump in? ...

Well, never too late but the sooner the better - you know that, doesn't you? Wink


Este, gratz for the bitmarknews kick off. It looks good  Grin

Incase anyone is curious about what's on the agenda.

Some of you heve already covered the aspects and subjects we should give priority in the site.

However, I would like to see live mini stats in a little box somewhere on the mainpage. I mean price, net hash, blocks info, even random live data (I guess we have plenty of ways to mirror some cool numbers on that). A small chart showing some relevant function progress. Those are things people like to see, and appreciate. I like monitoring everything (who doesn't?). If I have a small panel with live relevant data about the coin while I browse the portal, queue on IPM, or post some thoughts at the forum, it would be super cool and useful resource, I think.

Like coinsolidation said, it's good we begin to think 'the site' more like the Bitmark portal and design it with that already in mind.

Milestone We have slowly reached a difficulty of 56, with an average hash rate of over 2 GH/s, there are only a handful of scrypt coins at this difficulty or higher.


Our website will have a large structure, with many resources and informative views. It will also house our discourse based community, with marking support.

The question is one of priority.

Should the website be created and put live quickly, providing a coherent informative place where people can join us and overview what Bitmark is about, with the discourse community added later?
Or perhaps we should stick with the current plan, to provide the discourse community and everything else, all at the same time?

What are the advantages and disadvantages of each?

About the network hashrate and the difficulty rise, I was expecting that about a week ago. That only shows that what we're doing is getting noticed and people, despite we've chosen not to be prematurely listed on Exchanges, are seeing the true potential of thie Bitmark project and getting all the estimated numbers proven to be right regarding the coin value.

So, everybody knows already that sooner or later they'll have to come and be part of it. And the sooner the better Wink

About the site and the getmarked powered community spot, my oppinion is we should publish the site with the IPM pool support and the already created utilities as soon as possible. We need a face. With relevant information, a good navigation system node to everything Bitmark related, with our colors, our goals, our achievments, etc. - the Bitmark home with everything the 'normal' user, even an outsider of the cryptocurrency universe, may easily understand - the fundamentals of what is Bitmark and why everybody should join us.

Then we should hit the charts. I mean Exchanges.

Then the kick start of getMarked with the 'discourse' community to serve as a community spot, ofc, but also as a getMarked lab where we will develep and experiment new services, interfaces, api's etc.

So, resuming, answering your question: We should come with what we have now if what we have now is ready and awesome!
And I know it is. Cheesy

Mood of mamm holders: vary. From "we are in pile of mammoth shit" to the "this coin will be most innovative"

Mamm state: frozen... like most of mamms in sibir. So even pump or new features will be more like resurection

Dev state (my opinion): "we are crap at marketing but we are buillding CyberMammoth to protect animals"

Mamm development team and their product:

In the middle its not a pizza or too long keept meal. Its a mammoth! For now its has one big problem - not moving but devs claiming that they solve this problem soon (3 weeks). They are calling it Phase 2.

Priceless! Smiley

getMarked icon design, feedback request

<MarkPfennig> getMarked needs a small icon
<MarkPfennig> it will be used everywhere on the web, where ever you see a small heart, or a like, or an up arrow
<MarkPfennig> sometimes the symbol will be the only thing
<MarkPfennig> think of...
<MarkPfennig> the youtube thumb
<Allow> ok
<MarkPfennig> the vimeo and soundcloud heart
<MarkPfennig> the reddit up arrow
<MarkPfennig> it is to be a small icon that may potentially be on every website in the world
<MarkPfennig> so it must be simple, clear, and generic.. it is to represent "give reputation" or "give karma" or "give a small amount of money" or "like this"
<MarkPfennig> the icon should express those thoughts
<Allow> maybe a "M" with double stripes left and right?"

I have agreed with Allow and asked him to create a visual proposal of this, does everybody agree?

I think the icon should include a check mark symbol as someone has proposed before.

Thanks. At the current rate, 1 day renting scrypt rig is about 0.77 a day. It means that I should pay 0.77 BTC to receive more or less a total amount of 7 BTM daily?
I hope I m wrong  Cry

You are! Smiley
Current price is less than 0.001 per MH/s/24H

New Wiki Page: Solo Mining

Following multiple queries as to how to set up solo mining, I have finally managed to document Solo Mining on the Wiki.

If there are any questions or clarifications required please ask.

Proving the theory

Part of the rationale behind Bitmark's Block Chain configuration is the notion that more rewards per day will create a healthier network.

I have proved the theory twice myself already, and now I've challenged a small solo miner to help me prove it also.

He has 1.7 MH/s, and is therefore on the edge of luck. By the average network hashrate he should manage marginally over 1 block per day. Since you can only find complete blocks, this means he will get 20 or 40 BTM per day, 1 or 2 blocks. If he mined on a pool he would generate 20-21 BTM each day, by taking this challenge we can prove if solo mining is viable, and if our theory is sound.

The challenge I have set him is to see how lucky he is, he will mine for exactly 24 hours and report back as to how many blocks he finds. I will double whatever rewards he gets for doing this challenge.

getMarked Funding Goal: 0.9/8 BTC, with 1.15 BTC pledged.

Sorry for my noob question but I m not tech astute. Does it mean that if I rent a rig I would have more or less 20-21 BTM each day, right ( it mines only in the pool)?
I was watching at nicehash but if someone would suggest me a better service for rent a rig it will be appreciated ( and a pool with the related port, I don't see it in the OP)

thanks again

If you decide to rent a rig, there are 2 pools where you can mine BTM:

On each of them you'll find the stratum adresses and all the information you need to set up your rigs.

Hope this helps Smiley

Sorry to bring this subject to the table, when so many new ideas keep beeing generated and discussed, when we even have a list of proposed topics to discuss... but, like Mark has done a few days ago, I feel the need of doing it now aswell for more or less the same reason...

I understand and agree with the 'momentum thing' to step on the GetMarked development, essencially with its foundation matters, tecnologic structure and prototyping.

But there are pending and urging things which were announced, discussed, approved, with equal importance, that should be already on prodution, or beeing the main development focus atm. Ofc this is just my oppinion and what counts to my own positionment as a member of the community who is also a miner, an investor and a system developer.

I'm talking specifically about the site and the IPM pool web interface. Because these objectives are too much important, not to the project development process, but mainly to Bitmarks assertion amoung the public and all the actors. I started here as a miner looking for a good long term project. Now I'm far more interested, as an investor, on the global adoption but I consider that all the opportunities chain begins with a good and desirable production (mining) system that was well designed to the benefit of the Bitmark Foundation and all the actors interested on this coin.

I've stated many times, here and at the IRC channel, that I think this project is achieving such a dimmension that some of the scheduled objectives are getting out of focus (or maybe not and we just don't know what's going on relatively to timmings and stage of the development beeing made) - and this is not good, imo.

This is my perspective about priorities and the overall project progress:

1. The roadmap shouldn't be an abstraction but a scheduled, objective and quantificable checklist.

2. The toDo list should be...

[Bitmark] Site > IPMPool > Utility Tools > Bitmark to Exchanges.

[GetMarked] System design, graphics and brending, structure and networking, prototyping, beta testing > GetMarked site = Production > Promotion and adoption campains.

... with Site and IPMPool the main priority.

The ideology of the 'no rush, we have enough time, we can change coins between ourselves and so, we know what Bitmark is and its potential, etc', per se, means nothing to outsiders - we must move outside our bounderies, put our marks on the game table and start playing our game there too. I think we'll only gain real credibility to successful implement all the bright ideas we're brainstorming everyday, after we accomplish this.

This is what MAMM really needs the most: colaboration and communication between dev and the community. That will make the coin stronger and more noticeable for the investors.

Mammoth is a great coin and deserves more attention. Development progress had always been good with delivered and proven results but, imo, there's still a lot to do regarding the project organization and the social/community dynamics.

Looking forward to see what remistevens will do with the MAMM video. I'm sure it will be a very useful marketing resource for us.
The giveaway, as magpr suggested, and any other promotional inniciatives are also precious to get some more focus over MAMM. We are still very closed inside our own shell.

In the last few days the silence was broken, construtive ideas and oppinions were posted in the thread, fud and useless stuff were kept out of it, and dev is present and open to given suggestions. These simple things will have impact on the markets and will be pushing MAMM up.

So guys, lets keep it up!

Haha Grin I believe that.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Bitmark on: July 22, 2014, 08:46:27 PM
I agree that Bitmark should strive to reach outside of this community, however to accomplish this we must first provide a site for people to view Bitmark. As we reach out to communities we want to direct them to a site outside of this forum.

IMO - Bitmark does need crowdfunding and exposure, just not through this medium.

Peoples 1st Impression of Bitmark, must be a lasting impression.

Agree. We already have a site and the IPM pool frontend almost finished, I think. I'm sure Mark will give some feedback about it very soon.

I think PoW has ended. My rigs are mining in the air, I suppose.  Roll Eyes
It was nice if dev come here to clearify this.

Bitmark investment

Also, don't forget that the future of GetMarked is totally open ended at this point and once the core is built the potential can really start being unlocked. As people get involved in GetMarked as a separate-but-linked system to Bitmark it might be able to be used to generate profits in other ways. See for a similar example of some potential that can even be exceeded conisdering micropayments are the future of the web. And Bitcoin itself is a complete failure thus far in the microtransaction arena, and it's not going to get better anytime soon since transaction fees are just going to get worse.

Flattr has been funded 2.1m already by investors( ) so some smart people obviously see the potential that's there. Flattr removed the option to tip in bitcoin a while ago so the door is wide open right now.

I understand that. And I agree. I've just prefered the crowdfunding was made on a proper platform, outside this thread, with visibility outside the community, with all the details, goals, timmings about the development process, aswell the funders rewards or prizes stated so everybody could understand what we're aiming and when should we expect to have the basic system ready to enter production stage. Like any other crowdfunding project, I mean Smiley
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Bitmark on: July 22, 2014, 05:51:58 PM

So, this specific investment will just pay off when 1 BTM = 50k satoshi. Now how far are we from that?

Any BTM you already hold have to count as well though if you think about it. It's an investment in Bitmark over all not just contained in the ROI you'll see from the mined BTM from it.

No. Any BTM I already hold count to my Bitmark investment - the currency. GetMarked is a service with a specific purpose. And that's why coinsolidation putted it as a separate branch of the project. GetMarked crowdfunding, from an investor perspective, should show quantificable returns, timmings, and detailed goals. Or I'd be thinking what's the gains of a GetMarked investor versus someone who don't care to put some in? Because, one thing is to contribute or donate, other is investment.

Side investments can sum big cash to the project. Donations or contributiuons will just not get people in, imho.

Again, I'm speaking as an investor, not a passionate community member, what "8 BTC to guarantee GetMarked success" mean? How can we measure this success? what is the success we're talking about? If this doesn't make sense, I'll drop it but, tbh, it makes a lot of sense to me.
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Bitmark on: July 22, 2014, 04:57:49 PM
I've been digesting all the ideas and oppinions about the GetMarked funding proposal and also coinsolidation real life concearns, etc.

And, as I said, I'll be part of the process and I'll invest what I can on that side-project according to what was proposed. As soon I receive my mensal wage in about 2 or 3 days, I'll invest 0.25 BTC on GetMarked. That's all I can do for now.

Just for the record, 6 BTC equals 6 x minimum wage in my country and is a bit more them the sum of both me and my wife's mensal wages working full time as teachers in a College. This serves just as a side note to open our minds to the different real life realities we have in just a little community like ours.

So, I will treat my funding on GetMarked as a complementary 'investment' and so, I'll expect return, I mean measurable return. And I think I'm not alone here. For now, I've donate 0.03 BTC to the first expenses, I'm mining BTM with my own rigs plus 20MHash of rented rigs for almost a week, and I will put more 0.25 BTC on top of it to help GetMarked started. Some may think is not much but, it really is for me and my familly too. I beleive for some people here it's not so easy to justify to their families "hey honey, I'm gonna put more 200 on that virtual currency stuff I'm on now ..."

Beside all the importance and possible future gains we ALL may have with the implementation of the GetMarked system, the GetMarked investors will get a share indexed to 20% of the fund. So lets see...

coinsolidation: "As a practical example, 8 BTC could ensure GetMarked's success, 6 BTC would cover all of my time for a full month, allow for budget of resources, and allow to tip the people who help. The 2 BTC would generate roughly 16,000 BTM to distribute to funders."

So, this specific investment will just pay off when 1 BTM = 50k satoshi. Now how far are we from that?
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Bitmark on: July 21, 2014, 10:13:07 PM
You could use Bitcoin crowdfunding services like or or even both of them for that purpose Smiley
That would also attract more attention to Bitmark itself.

I wholeheartedly agree, to reach out to other communities and bring people in is always our primary goal.

We do not want to become a community of people swapping money between ourselves, it is clear where that ends up.

To bring in one potential adopter or somebody to the discussion, that is as more valuable than any funding could be.

OK, well then lets move in this direction. I agree that Crowdfunding Bitmark's Side Projects will provide a good metric by which to gauge public interest.

We could also consider
- Funds donated through RocketHub are given to the project, regardless if the project meets its monetary goals.
- Also noteworthy, RocketHub's new partnership with A&E could potentially magnify Bitmarks exposure outside of the crypto community. (This appears to be inline with Bitmarks long term Strategic Vision)

I greatly support this iniciative and I'll do all I can to help it go through. I'm sure we're doing the right steps and tho still capable to throw our eyes beyond the horizon...

About those platforms, I don't have a valuable oppinion because I've never used one before. I'm sure some of you guys will choose the right one for the purpose.

I'm interested and excited about beeing one of the funders (or investor) and contribute for the success of GetMarked if the community choose to start with it as a side-project. So lets think about the real budget numbers and begin to draw the plan Smiley Maybe spme pf you guys come with some concrete proposal we can discuss...
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Bitmark on: July 21, 2014, 11:42:25 AM
Another 3 awesome pages on this thread, to the step forward and the consolidation of our coin. Great!

I was away for the weekend and I couldn't participate on the IPM round tests because my funds weren't made avaiable on time. So I've rent some rigs and put myself mining some Bitmarks at the regular pools. Later on I'll have about 200 BTM on my wallet Smiley

I don't know why but both pools ( and seem to give scattered hashrate results and the true is that almost (if not all) the rigs I've rent worked way below of the announced hash/s/day. So, I'll have to make the math to get the real production cost of my experience and compare them to the results of the IPM test rounds.

About the 'miners addenda' to the IPM Pool terms, and if the numbers are the ones stated on the post, it may be globally interesting. Well, for the miners is always a good deal. For the investors, depend if the production cost is kept low and the 96%/4% will pay the 8 extra hours the rigs will be running 'for the house', and still present a roughly equal returns as if they were rented for 24H at 0.001. For the whole Bitmark project I'm sure this will be very good if we can gather our own group of honest miners and implement IPM like this and get the right numbers that balance all the interests.

The GetMarked thing is something we should put some efforts right away. It's not only a good idea - it's 'just' the future of crypto... I've watched some talks by cryptocurrency gurus (and other scientists that are doing investigation about this matter) and what comes to attention regarding the adoption of digital money is: "trust and credibility", "focused on/supervised by the community", "more then call it 'money' it should be known as a reward system".

'you click something; you do something = you get marked => you are rewarded'. Nowadays, that's how things get value, presence, relevance. The more badges, likes, subs, marks you have more popular and relevant you are - That's how it already works everywhere. So what's been missing? Imo, what's been missing is the acknowlegment of the importance of this method of adoption. And implement it.

Another thing is, this will ease the marketing of the coin. It's much more easy to make people to adopt a reward system then to 'sell' the idea of use a new crypto currency. Much more!

(There are some other communities working on this aswel. So lets jump on asap.)

One of my favorites is
It's very reliable, it has a great interface, very user friendly, with a lot of information and graph data.
I truly recomend this one.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Bitmark on: July 15, 2014, 02:36:37 PM
[...] I think the structure of how the foundation and IPM operates, as well as who controls it should be very transparent.

I agree. Not about beeing suspicious but that will avoid a lot of possible future misundertandings and will make everybody more confortable about getting in and invest via the IPM system.
