so there is no way to send many of the same transactions to one address quickly? Would it work if I repeated the same address over and over, or must they be different?

Vegas

Ok, generate the number of addresses you want, or use the same one over and over again. Not splitblock, and you don't need coincontrol.

sendmany address:amt, address:amt, etc...


EDIT: Almost all satoshi derived coins have this feature.

Hobonickels is a Script coin. Isn't that different from being satoshi derived?

Great feature! I have a couple of propositions about it. Is it possible to implement a custom period of the moving average to give holders an instrument that can help to fine tune their staking strategy? And wouldn't it be nice to have such charts plotted for every individual address?

Funny you ask, moneromooo had an almost identical request as well. I will work on these things soon.

Are such charts possible? It sounds like a tall order. They would be very useful if it could be done.

Pffft, of course they can. Presstab is a supreme DEV.
In that case I'll look forward to using them when they appear.  Smiley

Another stake just came in at 16% at a difficulty of approx. 0.00328. Are there any explorers that map difficulty on an hourly/daily basis?

PressTab made a really nice one here http://www.presstab.pw/phpexplorer/TEK/index.php
Thanks. Today's explorer charts show that sub-0.003 POS difficulties are still possible.

whats everyone getting right now on their stake percentage?? I though I read its been getting closer to the 40% area again...
I got 16% today.
Laughing all the way to the bank.
A few moments ago, I received an approximate 11% return on my stake. I'm reasonably happy with that. The difficulty was around 0.00338.

Has anyone recently experienced lower difficulties in the 0.00006 to 0.003 range? Or are they now a thing of the past?

Study StartCOIN last few days and have to say things looking real good here.

Nice network security to Wink

Will buy a few and see how it goes.


I get the feeling that Startcoin is about to make a massive leap into the Top 10 on Coinmarketcap.

Why? Well,

1)  Litecoin's block reward for miners is about to halve, and it looks like that coin is on the way out. And

2)  those total anonymity coins, like Dash (formerly Darkcoin), might be just about to get their collars felt by the NSA. I don't see any future for them.

Can you imagine if just one anonymous transaction was linked to terrorism? Evan Duffield would be joining Charlie 'Silk Road' Shrem and that other guy who got jailed for life. All those untraceable transactions would be just that, untraceable, lost, locked away in NSA vaults.

And the exchanges that deal with those total anonymity coins might just feel that they too are in peril for knowingly facilitating possible terrorism and drug dealing. Expect some imminent, mighty crashes.

Startcoin to increase in value more than 50 times over? That would only just take it to where Litecoin is now. Maybe Max Keiser was right when he recently said that Startcoin was incredibly under-valued.

Interesting. Startcoin is looking more attractive by the day.

I think most investors are concerned more with what it means for them in BTC terms. My 18 blocks of 4000 on Day 11 are now showing estimated payouts between 38-45 days, which is a big improvement from the 70+ on Day 1.

If that continues to drop I will be happy, but even so on today's figures, 1000 paid out on a 4000 stake is a 25% payout on an 8 weeks total stake period. Quite a good return. All my blocks are still showing "high" and not "highest", so I'm really in uncharted waters at this time - normally with my other POS coins I would be well into "highest" by now. That tells me that there are a lot of large blocks out there, probably in the 30,000+ range.

Maybe there is a case for putting a weight cap on very large coin blocks e.g. over 20,000. That could be good for the network and the security of the coin.

And blocks over 30 days stop earning weight. My guesstimate is that your 4k blocks will hit around 250,000 weight or less each. I don't believe I've had any over 300k weight before.

Interesting point of view on weight cap for large blocks.

Don't pay attention on the priority tab (inherited from Peercoin). It has almost no practical meaning as the network doesn't prioritize blocks. Only random variance of hashing process is responsible for staking efficiency of the block size vs. current diff. The bigger the blocks, the less total amount of blocks fighting for the stake presents currently in the network according to current supply, so it should't make you worry. Weight cap for large blocks can't be implemented because the diff can potentially be so high that no blocks, even with the reached block size weight cap, won't be able to stake and that will stop the whole network.

4k block will reach ~120 000 weight in 30 days (which is the max age of maturity, so this weight is the cap). The weight can be easily calculated with this formula:

 block size x age

I think most investors are concerned more with what it means for them in BTC terms.
My 18 blocks of 4000 on Day 11 are now showing estimated payouts between 38-45 days, which is a big improvement from the 70+ on Day 1.

Staking time estimate takes into account the diff which can vary through the day, so probably you will see another figures later, even bigger than now. The average staking time of your blocks (therefore the return) can be found only by experiments, you can only make rough estimates.

Thanks! Your post is helpful. I have a couple of raised eyebrows though:

1.  If only blocks of over 20,000 were weight-capped, all others below that threshold should continue to gain weight as normal and get an increased smell-in, in relation to the larger blocks as far as staking is concerned. If the super-large blocks were split up into smaller sizes, they would too increase in weight as time goes on until the difficulty is overcome. This may, or may not increase future difficulty.

2.  If splitting the super-large blocks up makes the difficulty much harder, then that, to my mind, would imply that there are an abnormally large number of super-large blocks out there and that in itself could have staking, distribution, security and other implications - especially if everyone were to now embark on an escalating block-size race ... or ... (the thought perished!).

My experiment continues ...  Wink

@billotronic and @iantunc

Thanks. I am experimenting with a range of block sizes from 4,000 to 13,000.

All my 4,000-sized blocks have passed the 10 day mark and are now mature, ready for staking. Individually, they are currently showing an estimated 60+ days to stake and have a 'High' priority. I suspect that might not be high enough for them to ever stake, especially if the current degree of difficulty becomes the norm.

It will be interesting to see if any of my other block sizes stake in the next 3-5 days. At the moment they are all less than 5 days old. According to the coin control, the nearest block to staking is a 13,000-sized block which is showing an estimated 25.71 days to stake.

A coin control question to experienced HyperStake users: Are the estimated days to a block staking reasonably accurate?

In the coin control list mode I'm getting estimates of between 50-64 days for individual matured blocks to stake,while on the syncing wheel at the front of the wallet console, I'm getting 3-5 days and 2-4 days to staking.
