281  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] Litecoin - a lite version of Bitcoin. Launched! on: March 15, 2012, 09:31:48 PM
For litecoin to live a relatively long life the algorithm should be made to NOT run on GPU's very well. However if this is done and it's kept open source I an assure you reaper will just be updated again.

This is essentially a war between the SLC backers and the LTC backers. Litecoin HAS been winning the war but with the deput of reaper (by the SLC backers) that is putting way too much LTC in the market. The price has been constantly dropping. If it wasn't for the mystery buyer that keeps buying sell orders up to .0012-.0013 on BTCE the price would be way lower.

Aside from this I only see a few things that can save litecoin.

1: Change the algorithm to be GPU hostile and change it to closed source.
2: Change the block reward to something lower.
3: Change the difficulty code so it's harder to get coins.
4: Community motivator to get projects running that support litecoin.

If none of these are done litecoin is going slowly whimper out.

Coblee. If you're working on something can you at least let us know? I'm starting to think that litecoin has been abandoned.

People love money and some people love a good mystery.

1: Get a bunch of cheap USB flash drives and get the bitcoin logo put onto the side.
2: Put a wallet.dat file on there with like 1/4 a bitcoin.
3: Read "readme.txt" explaining that there is money in data form on this drive and how to get at it.
4: Leave drive somewhere public where "normal" people can find it.
5: Local and national news picks this up as a story and gets more people interested in this new form of currency.
6: Profit. Well.. for some of you. =P

A new block on the entire bitcoin network?

The block stats show "Average in last 24 hours: 2133680 (+42.5%)" which means terrible luck I think?
According to my rewards I think that makes sense. However I've never seen so many long polls showing up in cgminer today. >.> What's up with that?

288  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: PSA : Final Litecoin LTC GPU miner released !!! on: March 13, 2012, 10:07:35 PM
This is the final full version that includes the source code and not the limited "demo" version. This is the real thing. People need to switch to LTC right now because it is much more profitable than BTC ( especially for Nvidia cards ).

Get it here while it is hot : http://wiki.solidcoin.info/wiki/Reaper

Everybody needs to switch from BTC to LTC right now because it is much more profitable.

Nobody is mining BTC anymore Wink

Please post what card you used and how you got it working and what hashrate you get. I am interested in what you get using 5870s !

Thank you very much !


You can listen to Bula or you can do your own maths and figure it out for yourself. =P

292  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: [LTC] An (even more) optimized version of cpuminer on: March 08, 2012, 02:14:13 AM
As was heralded by aaa801, here is

Version 2.1.5
  • New optimizations for Sandy Bridge (recent Intel processors) and Bulldozer (AMD FX series). The speedup should range from 25% for Intel to 45% for AMD, but only in 64-bit mode.
  • Building on Windows should now be possible without having to perform satanic rituals.
  • Building on Solaris using gcc should now work out of the box. (Thanks to pontius!)

The source code is, as always, available at GitHub. Binaries will be available soon available here.

Many thanks go to aaa801, shakti, and xurious for letting me use their CPUs during the development process! Smiley


Thank you very much for your continuous contributions to the LTC community pooler. =3

"The GPU is capable of 1Gpixel/s, 1.5Gtexel/s or 24 GFLOPs of general purpose compute and features a bunch of texture filtering and DMA infrastructure."

This looks like the chip they use.
 http://infocenter.arm.com/help/topic/com.arm.doc.ddi0301h/DDI0301H_arm1176jzfs_r0p7_trm.pdf

I'm guessing it does around 16 Mhash/s. =3
294  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Re: RaspberryPi raw hashing speed for SHA1/256/512. on: March 07, 2012, 03:43:52 PM
Nice to see some data. Soo.. the bitcoin hash rate would be in between 64 and 128 some where?
295  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: LITECOIN -- GPU Mining on: March 05, 2012, 03:42:41 PM
Using your GPU to mine LTC is only occasionally profitable. Bitcoin will most always be more profitable.

And remember, reaper was released by a fan of the opposing chain, solidcoin. Also they did not release the "good" one which supposedly gets 30% more hashes.

I'm still stumped why the LTC community did not make one first. Someone in the LTC community needs to take the reigns and get people motivated.
296  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: RaspberryPi (PC for $25) and LiteCoin mining on: March 02, 2012, 01:39:17 AM
I'm guessing it does around 15-25Mhash/s. =3 (Bitcoin mining)


297  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Re: Windows 8 Consumer Preview ISO images on: March 02, 2012, 01:16:12 AM
Hardware = 6770, 935 MHz OC (850 base) , 300 MHz UC (1200 base)
Miner = CGMiner 2.0.2, default settings, intensity=4 (process was tuned to use one core and priority was set to realtime)

To change the SDK's I used I put the opencl.dll file in the cgminer folder.
When the Mhashes current value in CGMiner stayed at the same value for 3 seconds or so I screenshoted it.


Windows Vista 64 bit, Catalyst 11.12, SDK 2.5



Windows 8 64 bit, Catalyst Consumer Preview RC10, default APP



Windows 8 64 bit, Catalyst Consumer Preview RC10, SDK 2.1



Windows 8 64 bit, Catalyst Consumer Preview RC10, SDK 2.4



Windows 8 64 bit, Catalyst Consumer Preview RC10, SDK 2.5

Using the installer for the catalyst and/or SDK packages has always been a nightmare.

It seems to use the installer that was used last. I install the full catalyst drivers(including the streaming stuff) and then extract the opencl.dll from whatever SDK I want to use and plop that into the cgminer folder. That why I don't have installer issues.

Removing catalyst drivers is even more annoying.

Un-install everything.
Delete all ATI/ AMD folders including the ones in Roaming.
Open up regedit and kill all ATI and AMD folders in localmachine and currentuser.
Reboot in safe mode and run Driver Sweeper.
Then reboot into normal windows and install catalyst.

Or you could just re-install windows. =P
