Each GPU needs 1 core of CPU for AMD I believe - so keep that in mind.

Interesting, so my Celeron  CPU G1610 (which is dual core) may well not be up to the job then?  It's been mining SCRYPT fine for the last 6 months.


If your Celeron drives two GPUs it's perfectly fine. Some people do (or did) exactly that: high performance GPU feeded by low performance CPU

Yup! Newer Catalyst drivers + better folding@home software updates allow a lot of systems with low-end processors to still run high-end GPUs without too much bottlenecking. Smiley

I thought I would point some of my rigs for folding for Curecoin, but after this scam launch there's no way I'll ever do that...

200 block instamined nice, great I can't believe you failed that much. Near 0.1% of curecoin that are going to be mined are now in the hands of a few ones

Are you guys living under a rock or something? have you ever heard of kgw or dgw?

I whish only one thing, that your fucking scam just fail...
I downloaded QT in few minutes after start and there were 3 blocks. There is no instamine. But I don't understand how to mine this coin with CPU's.

You can mine with your CPU by typing 'setgenerate true -1' in the console:
Help -> Debug Window -> Console
However, at this difficulty, CPU mining will be extremely hard if not impossible.

I'm not sure exactly how this coin works but the difficulty is already OVER 9000!

Yup!

220 blocks already, remind me block time please?

Block time is supposed to be 10 minutes, though during the early part of the coin blocks come extremely fast while difficulty adjusts. Difficulty, at block 220, is now 9769 and climbing quickly.

Does the FAHLog show anything unusual?

-snip-

All 4 gpus have 0% utilization

What driver version are you on?

Catalyst 13.12 I had trouble getting all 4 gpus working mining scrypt and x11
on any newer version of catalyst

I've seen people with R9 290s working with the 14.3+ drivers, though mining is an issue with those drivers. . . What folding power are you at? Full?

Yes full lowering did nothing I already tried that

I guess ill install the newest amd drivers and hope it works

You can netcat into 127.0.0.1 36330 and then run commands like 'slot-info' to see additional information, though it will probably tell you the same thing FAHClient does.

I am having trouble getting my gpus to fold there just not doing anything they show up in the web interface

Do they show up in FAHClient?



Start -> Search for 'FAHClient'

The FAHControl client advanced?

they all show up say they are running but no progress is being made
Do r9 290s work with this

Do you have a program like MSI Afterburner to see if the GPUs are being utilized at all? It can take up to 5 minutes for jobs to start running on the GPUs. R9 290s should work, what driver are you on?

The official website has protection system, great coins from great to little drops, strict

wtf does that even mean?!

I imagine he's referring to cloudflare, not sure on the little drops thing though.

Alright, looks like we need some clarification on the percentages, sorry about not putting that in my previous post!

3% of the coins will be the dev funds--paying for development of various infrastructure, paying for servers for hosting things, forum upkeep, web design, kickstarting Curecoin projects, bounties, etc. This money will be extremely transparent, we will have a blog where every transaction involving the dev funds is posted and explained, with a crosspost to the forum for comments.

2% of the coins will go to the initial donator funds. As a reminder, this amount was 1BTC per 10k Curecoins, and was used as a way to fund everything during development. The initial donations went way beyond what we expected, and as thus we still have some funds remaining from that, which we are using to buy powerful hosting for the forum, website, and file mirrors. On release, we will have multiple file mirrors, seed nodes around the world, etc. If anyone at this point wants a donation refund, I offer a buyback at 1.1BTC/10k Curecoins, a 10% profit over your initial investment for trusting us. Otherwise, your Curecoins will be waiting for you!

We sent this message to all investors:
Quote
This email is confirming your share of CureCoins to soon be delivered to you. You donated 2 BTC and therefor will receive 20,000 CureCoins shortly after launch. For secure delivery of the coins, please respond with your curecoin address to racingoblivious@gmail.com after the coin is launched and you have downloaded the client. Launch date will be announced on the BTCtalk forum and also at https://www.facebook.com/Curecoin .

The CureCoin team thanks you.
Josh aka CygnusXI Lead Dev
Vorksholk - Co Dev
Bitfolder - Project Manager
-- If you are an investor and you did NOT receive this message, please PM me ASAP!

The remaining coins will be split 80/20 folding/mining. So considering all the total coins in the network as 100%, then the TOTAL folding funds will be 76% of the network, and the mining funds will be 19%.
As the way the coin was designed, the folding share is premined. This serves three purposes:

--> Preventing a future fork of the chain stealing folding funds
--> More reliable payout scheme, take the guessing out of folding
--> As the coin is PoS, a 51% attack on a PoS coin with a large amount of the coin reserved will be nearly impossible until the majority of coins have been paid out, at which point the network will be more than large enough to protect itself.


I really wish I could give you an exact time for launch, we're trying to work a bunch of people's schedules to all coincide so we can have pool operators, folders, developers, etc. available when it launches to answer questions, help people who are late on the folding train, etc.
As for prep-steps, you can check out the illustrated Windows folding guide I have over http://www.curecoin.us/index.php?topic=3482.0.

Hey everyone! To consolidate the above information into one explanation:

1.) Curecoin, as cygnusxi mentioned, is a hybrid PoW/PoS coin. The traditional PoW was, of course, SHA256D for Bitcoin. Like Bitcoin, Curecoin uses SHA256D, and the PoS first implemented by PPCoin.

2.) People have expressed concern over the possibility of people cheating Folding@Home. As pointed out higher up in this thread, parts of F@H that have to do with work formatting are closed-source in an attempt to eliminate the possibility of people faking workunits. However, no downloadable software is truly 'closed source', as at some level the software has to actually run, and to do so must be expressed in machine code/assembly. Folding@Home has server-side integrity checks of work units which aim to also eliminate attempts at cheating. Of course people will try, most will fail. As the project moves on, exploits will be found and fixed. Any project like this will suffer similar attacks, and at this point it is a small concern.

3.) The folding pool can be adapted to support other projects. Right now, Folding@Home is the project we chose to integrate first with. However, in the future, other projects can be added/removed and tracked. Our back-end works by aggregating statistics from Folding@Home, and doing a proportional payout. In a simple example, if User A got 20,000 Points on Tuesday and User B got 40,000 Points on Tuesday with no other users doing any folding, User A would get 33.3% of the Curecoins for that day's payout, and User B would get 66.6% of the Curecoins that day. If we were to add an additional project, we would need to find a conversion of points between the projects (use a benchmark machine or two, and test how many points per day that machine could get with each project for both CPU work and GPU work, and strike a balance by using a proportion to convert points from both projects into a normal point system). If a benchmarking machine could get 8,000 points per day on, say, Rosetta@Home while getting 12,000 PPD on F@H, then each Rosetta@Home point would be worth 3/2 of a F@H point, so if one person got 8000 R@H points and another got 12000 F@H points, they would receive equal payout, as they used approximately equal computational power for the same amount of time.

While we are not currently working on implementing other projects, the possibility is certainly there, and the project is not, by definition, tied to Folding@Home.

4.) Folding@Home is a major distributed computation network, and therefore has the resources to ensure that the project can continue to grow without causing problems.

People have also expressed concern over the proof-of-work being SHA256D. To summarize, SHA256D is a very light hashing algorithm that high-performance ASICs have been created and distributed for. Most other algorithms currently require the use of a GPU or CPU. ASICs are unable to do folding, while GPUs and CPUs are slow at SHA256D, so the logical choice is to allow ASICs to secure the network by doing hashing, while GPUs and CPUs can do the work they are great at--folding.

To recap on the donation-option, the agreement was one BTC would get you 10k Curecoin. If people want to sell their slots back to us or to other people, that is perfectly fine, just shoot ME a PM about it, and we'll get everything sorted out.

As far as I know, donors will get their coins soon after curecoin releases, maybe a week? We don't want someone dumping ridiculous amounts on release, and want to make sure everything scales as expected. Cygnus has the final word on that, though.


Do donors have to do something right now in order to receive their coins?



Nothing right now! On release, you'll need to download your wallet, and then send us the address you want your coins to go to. Smiley
