1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Pools (Altcoins) / Re: [POOL][XMR] MoneroHash.com - DDOS protected reliable pool - USA - NY on: February 20, 2017, 12:47:05 AM
I'm having problems with my miners (hardware issues), so I asked for an early payment from monerohash (wrote to admin@monerohash.com) without any answer... can you help me?

I don't always reply instantly to emails. Some times I may reply pretty quick, some other times I may take up to 48 hours, but I think I usually do within 24 hours.

I've paid all pending requests that I received, so I must have already paid yours too. Let me know if you didn't get your payment.

Just wanted to mention that https://monerohash.com/ now supports SSL/TLS connections on port 9999.

With Claymore's GPU v9.7 miner using an encrypted connection reduces the dev fee from 2.5% to 2%.

Feel free to give it a try.

Sorry guys, I'm don't frequent this forum as much as I used to in the past, and never realized someone had posted in this old thread.

As you may already know we went through the fork with no problem.

Regarding luck... yes, we have ups and downs like every one Smiley. Some times we may be extremely lucky, and some other times extremely unlucky.

I've just enabled support for SSL/TLS for miners connections. In the case of Claymore's GPU miner you get a discount on the dev fee from 2.5% to 2% if you use SSL.

hopefully monerohash.com's recent upgrade to allow mining directly to an exchange, although not ideal, will move some of the hashrate from the others
I'd like that to happen  Smiley

the reason minergate has so much hash is because they have a browser miner.... which, you know, is just weird.
Mining in the browser is actually extremely slow. Most probably the reason they have so much hash is because their GUI miner has a "Smart Mining" feature (enabled by default) that mines the most profitable coin, which right now happens to be Monero. And that's probably why Minergate's XMR hash has gone up a lot from what they used to have.

Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that https://monerohash.com/ now supports mining directly to an exchange address using a payment ID.

Although I don't encourage mining to an exchange, I know there are some miners out there that prefer it that way, so feel free to give it a try.

Minimum payout is 7 XMR. Payments are run twice per day.

EDIT: To clarify, the mininum of 7 XMR and the frequency of 2 payments per day is for exchanges addresses. Normal minimum payout is 0.3 XMR.

Hey guys, for those in need of a remote daemon I'm hosting a node at node.monerohash.com for public use.

Just run simplewallet with:
Code:
--daemon-host node.monerohash.com

I've also made it available through Tor at monerobdyzaxfa4e.onion so people can use it with torsocks:
Code:
torsocks ./simplewallet --daemon-host monerobdyzaxfa4e.onion

It has also been added to node.moneroworld.com which is u/gingeropolous' effort to provide a single point of entry for public nodes (more info at http://moneroworld.com)
 
I'll keep this node up for a while, depending on whether I see some real use in a few months or not, I might take it down.
If you would like to donate some moneroj to keep this node up, send them to 4JZVyE5uGeKP8JARRB5kttMQ65zYpFYAkienY8SVxpt6HuxnGuQTSTdKqCLsnh1iYwi53bqpLGVf8YQ nEzo9mFkjWcmifTUQ75pGNLJCjV

Just curious, how much monero is the node costing you to keep it up per month?

This one right now is costing USD $3 per month, that's about 3.55 XMR at the current exchange rate. I got a promo code for a recurring discount on a new VPS provider, the original price is $4. The specs are: KVM virtualization, 512MB RAM (490 actually), 20GB SSD, 1 vCPU (3.3ghz). I thought I would give it a try, so far is good, the SSD performance is below what I was expecting but for that price I think it's still a good deal.

I'll see how it goes, maybe I'll use another provider in the future for a slightly higher cost ($3.60-$4.50)

Am I missing something? How is cash digital?


Wire transfer, interact transfer, visa, etc.  You can transfer fiat electronically in many ways however none of them are decentralized.



Nor private.

IMO that diagram is confusing: Fiat money can't be digital and private at the same time, it can be private only in the form of cash, which is not digital.

12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [XMR] Monero - A secure, private, untraceable cryptocurrency - 0.8.8.6 on: October 22, 2015, 02:29:32 PM
The 1 TB version i built comes to ~$300 with a 750 ti, so you could get 250 h/s. And these are all retail component costs. Perhaps someday I'd be able to get scale prices somehow. Proper cooling has proven to be a pain - its difficult to find high quality small form factor fans - fans that could last 5 years of constant runtime. And then the question of how loud the fans can be.

The best solution for a 10 year low- or no-maintenance device is to go completely fanless. Forget the GPU unless you can find something decent that is fanless and can be mounted in a fanless chassis (which requires very low thermal output) and instead use a high efficiency CPU with good hash rate like the one we talked about on IRC (hash rate is roughly 120 for 15 watts, possibly less) with a brick PSU. It might require maintenance if the HD dies, but that's about it. Switching to SSD would reduce that. Even with with HD you can't do it $300 though. Not quite yet, but maybe next year.

Unfortunately what kills the price here is that the really cheap CPUs (Celeron, Atom, etc.) can't mine XMR well, but many of them can mine AEON. If you accept a much lower hash rate and efficiency you can still do it, and probably come in below $300 for the whole system.




There's this Tronsmart Ara x5 for $150 which is fanless, has an Intel Atom x5-Z8300 CPU (2MB cache and supports AES-NI!), 2GB of RAM, and 32GB eMMC.

I wonder how much H/s it could pull, given its 2MB cache and AES-NI support. Only downside (for me) is that it doesn't support Linux yet.

Also there's this Kickstarter campaign for a Raspberry-Pi style board with an Atom x5-Z8300 CPU for ~$100. This one will support Linux.

that and its a ~5 year box at current network usage... perhaps 2 year box at real usage. 32 gb?

how does it not support linux? for 150$ this could be a fun experiment.

If block time is modified to 2 minutes then it should last longer. Also, you can always add an external storage.

Regarding Linux... I don't know, maybe it's not that hard to make it work but it doesn't support it officially, and I haven't found any guide on the net, though this device is pretty new so it may take some time for some guide to appear.

I just saw that it's on Amazon for $160: http://www.amazon.com/Tronsmart-Ara-X5-Windows-Graphics/dp/B0157QPLXM/

Current map of nodes:

snip

MAP

I'm not sure how accurate that map is. I have been running a full node in Italy now for a little more than a month and it has yet to show on the map.
(yes, it's working, > 30 INC connections)

Could you check your node's IP on this site https://www.iplocation.net/ and tell me which country it reports for "Geolocation data from MaxMind" (the last one from the list) ?

Thanks!

Italy Smiley

Hmmm... weird, maybe the DB has no coordinates for it and that's why it's not showing up. If you would like, please PM me your IP and I'll check what's going on (I'm the one running monerohash.com). I'll probably do that tomorrow as I'm goind to bed right now.

Regarding running bitmonerod through Tor, I can run it just fine with torsocks.

When launching bitmonerod I get a bunch of
Code:
libtorsocks(6718): WARNING: The symbol res_query() was not found in any shared library with the reported error: Not Found!
  Also, we failed to find the symbol __res_query() with the reported error: Not Found
and a bunch of
Code:
libtorsocks(6716): sendto: Connection is a UDP or ICMP stream, may be a DNS request or other form of leak: rejecting.

but it runs well and syncs properly after that. All connected peers are reported as 127.0.0.1:9050.

LMDB still won't work because the LMDB design requires 64 bit. There is an experimental branch of LMDB called VL32 but that is likely never going to be a great option because the developer says "I am philosophically opposed to supporting 32 bit architectures in LMDB." and "Due to the added system calls involved, it is significantly slower" and "Fundamentally, supporting this feature in LMDB is the wrong thing to do." Quotes from http://www.openldap.org/lists/openldap-technical/201501/msg00127.html

At this point the best approach for 32 bit embedded is going to be BDB, although in the future there might be an even better option (BDB has some issues, but at least the implementation exists). On RPi2 it serves as a nice (successful!) functional test is still likely too slow to ever actually use. Some work has been done to optimize it, mostly by NoodleDoodle.

Thanks smooth for your reply!

For those interested in running bitmonerod on a Raspberry Pi 2, it seems to work now with LMDB.

I don't know why, all I did was sudo apt-get update && upgrade after a period of not using the rpi.

Sync time is still slow, but it seems faster than BDB.

When I tried with LMDB approx two months ago, sync time was >10 days. (I shut down my RPi2 after 10 days.)

Has the ARM code base been updated, so that things are faster now?


I think I spoke too soon because the daemon froze at block 345, now I seem to be having input/output problems with the SD card. Going to try it later with the blockchain stored on a USB drive.

Mine also gets stuck at 345. Setting log level to 1 shows that block f75483b9941492ed9b4e23a90143da59002647232310230b17baeebe4f97c3d5, which happens to be block #346 (http://moneroblocks.eu/block/f75483b9941492ed9b4e23a90143da59002647232310230b17baeebe4f97c3d5), is being recognized as orphan and is rejected.

On the other hand, trying to use an up-to-date data.mdb from my Linux Intel 64 bit build, results in the following error:
Code:
Failed to open lmdb environment: Value too large for defined data type

OK, thanks for the clarification.
Yesterday was a really good day of mining for you. Congrats.

But, you really must provide more data points to be able to average it.
Also, since you said that some days the pool doesn't find a block, it seems that the more correct estimate would be 0 to 7.9 XMR per day.
That averages to 3.95 XMR per day, roughly what I would expect for 3.5khash/sec total hashing power.

Yeah good point.  Most days we get a block at least one anyway.  But about once every 10 days or so we will have a dry spell and no blocks.  Didn't put all the math together as I'm sitting on lunch break and didn't have time to do a daily average calculation.  I will say Monerohash.com has been solid and the operator which is    osensei is on point.  Code patches and updates mostly applied same day issues are reported by dev's and others.

 

Hey Drhiggins, just wanted to thank you for your support! Smiley

I am now syncing to the network on a Raspberry Pi 2, using Berkeley DB. LMDB does not work at this time for RPI but I understand it will be addressed in the future.

A Step-By-Step Guide to Running A Full Node on Raspberry Pi 2:


(thanks to smooth, binaryFate, fluffypony)

First, get your Raspberry Pi SD card set up.

Download Ubuntu for Raspberry Pi: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/RaspberryPi
Install Ubuntu onto the SD card: https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/installation/installing-images/README.md

Now, boot your Raspberry Pi.

sudo fdisk /dev/mmcblk0
Delete the second partition (d, 2), then re-create it using the defaults (n, p, 2, enter, enter), then write and exit (w). Reboot the system, then:

sudo resize2fs /dev/mmcblk0p2
There is no swap partition/file included. If you want swap, it's recommended you do:

sudo apt-get install dphys-swapfile
Install dependencies (note, there may be more, but this is what I remember):

sudo apt-get install git vim libboost1.55-all-dev build-essential doxygen libdb5.3 libevent-dev libunbound-dev miniupnpc liblmdb-dev

You are now ready to build the bitmonero daemon!


git clone https://github.com/monero-project/bitmonero.git bitmonero
cd bitmonero
vim Makefile
in the “release-all” section add this code: -D NO_AES=ON (type “i” to edit)
escape, then :x to save
cd src/blockchain_db/lmdb
vim db_lmdb.cpp
scroll to line 675 change “size_t mapsize = 1LL << 34;” to “size_t mapsize = 1LL << 30;”
:x
cd
cd bitmonero
make release-all
cd build/release/bin
./bitmonerod --db-type berkeley






Thanks for this saddam, I'll give it a try once I get my hands on the Raspberry Pi 2 I've ordered  Smiley

One thing though.... I tested the Berkeley DB implementation on my laptop and on a VPS, and it was taking ages to sync. Let me knows how it works out for you on the Raspberry Pi.

Hopefully LMDB issues for RPi will be fixed soon.
