1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] Expanse (EXP) - Fair Launch, No ICO, Community DAO, based on Ethereum on: March 26, 2016, 01:13:40 PM
Sure, ethereum is a great platform from which to build. Alot of thought has went into it and goes into it. So there are a few things we wanted to change.

We changed the following...

- blockreward
- genesis block
- diff retargeting divisor
- higher max gas
- slower blocktime to make mining more efficient, will be lowered once a solid PoS solution is created.

We are taking a more modular approach that is loyal to only the best solutions. Currently the best solution is near vanilla ethereum,but in the future that might not always be the case. Especially with new and competing system being developed, like hyperledger.

The stack basically looks like this. From top to bottom.

DAPPS - mostly done in javascript
Solidity - for writing contracts
EVM - the ethereum virtual machine
Proof of Work - consensus mechinism
Distributed Ledger
Local storage

Alot of these pieces can be swapped out. For instance, Do we always want proof of work? Or maybe DPOS might be good, or maybe something new that hasnt been invented yet. What about the the virtual machine, why not use docker or unikernels also?


Thank you

Can you give me a list of changes that have been made to EXP since it has been forked from ETH please?

I'm looking for a coin to invest in but need more input on the amount/quality of development that has been going on here.

Can someone please reply to my question?

I checked out these two repositories:

https://github.com/ethereum/go-ethereum
http://www.github.com/expanse-project/go-expanse.git

ran a diff and excluded everything that was just a changed name. Not much left there. Need some hints where to look for it.

Now as this coin is on azure I want to invest as soon as possible, but only after I've done my own research.

Thanks for presenting your solution!

I have noticed that http://bchain.info/SLM has stalled. I have written the site owners, perhaps they can restart the daemon, so we have a working block explorer again. Actual block height should be above 562700. Slimcoin.club, unfortunately, has not returned, but the domain still is registered until July 2016.

Note: when I type "slimcoind getpeerinfo" I get some peers stalled around block height 555000 (particularly 555099 and 555106).


I run the block explorer bchain.info, and the client I used for slim was outdated. Just updated to a new version, once its synced the explorer will be working again.

emmm need to find all the drives I can find.  I do have a bunch of flash drives that are 64GB 2.0s

Question,

Is each plot specific to each hard drive or can I move a plot from a drive to another drive?

When creating plot files you pick a range of nonces for it. Each nonce can only be used once per block, using it twice will give you the same results, therefore no advantage.

You can copy the plots just like any other file. What drive or medium its stored on also does not matter

Can confirm that USB3 drives (I run almost my entire 70+ TB on USB with individual ports on internal controller cards in a rackserver.) run just as well as internal drives do. Though, I've not really tested them when running via a USB3 hub. Mine all run on direct ports via USB3 controller SATA cards, or on the board's controller directly.

Mining with USB drives is perfectly fine, even multiple USB 3-Drives on a hub will perform well. It all comes down to linear read speed:

For each TB of plots 256MB of data need to be read, per block. As each block lasts 240 seconds on average there's plenty of time for it, even USB 2.0 drives perform okay.

Here you can see how read speed affects your effective capacity (on a 4TB drive)


I put in 2 lines for typical USB2/3 drives, however, total USB3 capacity on a hub is a lot higher.

hello guys , anyone in here know masternode reward ? some day ago i see in here , but i forget the link , If I am not mistaken , this link or image from excel .
thanks..  Smiley

I hope this right



Seems right. Thats about the amount I get with my masternodes.
I wonder why there aren't any more masternodes. You can double your coins in under 2 months, with virtually no risk  Huh

Hi,

bchain is on the correct chain again. Sry, it took me some time to upgrade it.

As this coin is getting more attention, I've added it to my blockchain-explorer site:

https://bchain.info/START/

(not sync'ed yet, will be done in a few hours.)

Comes with richlist (https://bchain.info/START/rich/), difficulty graphs and bootstrap.dat-download.

See https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=731923.msg10292524#msg10292524

Using single sha256 for nonce as a reference, the ballpark for conventional hardware of this TMTO is 25/75 pow/poc (bruteforce 8 bits of each 32bit nonce during a readout - assuming a disk can read 10Mnonce/s a second (*4 byte = 40Mbyte/s), that translates to 2560M nonce/s for top of the line GPU. The shorter the nonces are, the easier the PoW part is.

With dedicated hardware, 50/50 or more in favour of PoW.

As for your energy argument - if you have 1PB cluster eating 1kW and with a tiny (compared to HDDs) investment for PoW "booster" you have effectively 2PB cluster eating 2kW ... guess what most miners will opt for. Big appeal of current PoC is that most of capital investment is the equipment, not energy. POC2 as it is will drastically shift it towards conventional PoW.

On the upside - this can effectively get rid of NaS.

Fixing POW2 involves making the nonces large enough (at least 64 bit) so PoW becomes impractical for all intents and purposes.

Currently each scoop is 64 bytes - or 512 bits - long. Lets assume you brute force 16 bits of each, thats 65536 hashes per nonce the gpu needs to do - leaving 496 bits to store. Youīd be able to store 3% more nonces, at the cost of massive CPU/GPU load.
The long scoop length is an effective protection against this "hack", I hope its not going to be changed drastically with poc2.

In my opinion the number of scoops should be increased (to 16 * 4096 maybe), the scoop size reduced to 32 bytes - that would total in 2MB of disk space per nonce and 16MB/TB to be read each block, at a VERY LOW cpu load. Energy efficiency is the main selling point of BURST, donīt give up on that.


Quote
5. High blocktime variance
Due to the high amount of diskspace used per nonce, the total amount of nonces checked per block is very low compared to PoW coins. This leads to higher variance in block times.

In my opinion this is not the reason for higher block time variance. Coins with "slow" pow-algorithms like scrypt-jane donīt have this problem either.

In fact, basetarget may be adjusting too fast.

Been getting pretty long deadlines. Usually 17 hrs and up. Anyway to help lower deadline times? Newbie to the coin.
How much are you mining with? If solo mining that probably is normal.. You'll just find that every once in a while, probably rarely unless mining with a lot, you'll get a short enough deadline to mine with.
about 6TB, so it really just comes down to amount of storage?

Its all about your amount of storage. More storage -> lower deadlines -> more blocks found.

17 hrs is pretty good for 6TB, on average you will be at around a week.

The dev (OP) has logged on since this massive run has started.

For once I'd like to have a big position on a coin like this.

Someone is buying it all back up again probably prepping for another huge pump.

No offense, but to me this looks like you are trying to start a pump here.

just a short question: does the latest dcct optimizer under linux optimize the plots in chunks? or do I need at least free space of 1 x plot file? I wasn't thinking bout that before I started plotting another hdd, and now it'S pretty much full Cheesy

My latest optimizer needs at least space for 1 extra plot file. In theory its possible to optimize in place, but I dont think such an optimizer exists yet.

I am confused on one thing with HDD mining. What is the disk space being used for? (what service is it providing and to who)?
Only for data generated by you, that is needed to mine burst.

Let me try again. I don't understand. If I mine Burst with my harddrive space, who is using my harddrive?

The whole community I think.

Well, that's my point. I'm trying to figure out who this is providing utility to. (In the example of maidsafe the coin/token allows you to use storage space on the network - which works by HDD mining). I just don't see this type of information anywhere. It say's HDD mining in the OP but it doesn't explain anything. Am I missing something?


Its certainly being used, but not to store userīs data in a cloud like way - yet.

Like bitcoin miners use their hashing power to secure the network, Burst miners do the same with their storage - in a very energy efficient way.

After that you do not need it anymore to operate on your wallet.

Ouch! This is completely wrong.

Strong opinions combined with little insight are quite annoying  Roll Eyes

burst address = access !!!

Not true.

But Iīll let you find out yourself.

The address is numeric 20 digits long, so there are max. 99,999,999,999,999,999,999 different burst addresses. Brutforce would be therfore possible.
While you "fill up your database" you can always frequently check if an account of the richlist is in the database, whereby you can simplify it to only accounts who have more than 300 Bursts, or so.
You do not need to find ALL accounts to empty one account.


The numeric address is 64 bits long, your "99,999,999..." is quite a bit off.

And have a look at how a "Public Key" is assigned to an account. Its not just protected by these 64 bits!
