Are theer any past projects that you guys implemented? Can you show us links? Any background?

We now have a GUI client for Snowblossom, named IceLeaf.

Check it out:

What is the total supply? Or is there no limit?

Blocks of 50, halving after 4 years.  So limited to 17,520,000.

Will I even be able to mine without all 11 snowfields? This is like 4TB of data (according to the file sizes in my torrent client)

You can mine with just field 3 right now, which is 8gb.  As the difficulty increases further fields will be activated.

At the point it gets to the larger fields, I expect that people won't mind buying some multiple TB SSDs to put them on as there will clearly be enough interest and probably enough value.

This means you need to run the client first to make a wallet for the miner to send to.

So run client.bat and then try the miner again.

how to create wallet? it says it need client.conf

If you are running the windows release, just run client.bat

Otherwise you can just create a client.conf:
node_host=localhost
wallet_path=wallet

Those are all it needs.

It seems that mining for now is quite difficult for consumer level hardware. I have a gaming laptop with 16 GB of RAM on Windows and I am getting memory errors. Is this being addressed by the team?

The intention was that people would be mostly SSD mining.  My guess is that in a few weeks, very few will be RAM mining anymore and most will be using SSD or NVME so then the playing field is a bit leveler.

Finally it works.

INFOS: Generating snow field at 101,58 writes per second.  Estimated total runtime is 40,15 hours. 0,00 complete.

Just lol ...

Yeah, torrent might be a better idea in that case.

All up and running here.

i7 6700k getting 4700.0/sec give or take. 28 hours estimated to find a block? How many servers you running fireduck?  Grin

Do you have enough ram to run it in memory?  You can try that and get much better numbers.


Only have 16GB of Memory  Sad

And to answer the above, torrent was much quicker I found. I have a PCI-E SSD too.

That is enough to run in RAM for now.  If you are on windows, run miner-mem.bat

Okay, so now for me it says periodically Work Block load error and then xxxx writes per second again, is it starting and stopping all the time or am i doing right?

Is it just warning you that you don't have field 4?  If so, then you are fine and it is working.
That warning just means that once the field flips to the next one (4), you won't be able to mine anymore.

INFOS: Work block load error: java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to select a field of at least 3.  Availible: []

Node is up, at last block.
Any idea ?


So you need snowfield 3, which you can generate locally by putting "auto_snow=true" in your miner.conf or downloading from:
https://snowblossom.org/snowfields/index.html

INFO: Work block load error: java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to select a field of at least 3.  Availible: []

What does that mean?

It's downloading the 3rd field, you have to wait for it to finish. Or download the torrent.

Which was faster for you?

Just to be clear, the options are generating the snowfields locally (which involve 7 random IO passes and then a bunch of hash calculation work).  Those can take a while if not done on an SSD.  The torrent should be pretty fast.

Do I have to download all the Snowblossom 0,1,2,3,4.., files or just the current one?

And is it mining with gpus too?

So having the current one (3) and the next one (4) is a good idea, but you only need the current one.

Question: Is it using cpu only or my gpus as well?

No GPU mining yet, but unlikely unless you have a GPU with over 8gb of RAM.

How many time takes .0 and .1 files generation ?

Those should generate pretty quick, maybe a minute or two.  However, those aren't the current files. The current one is field 3.  You should stop the miner and wait for the node to sync up and then start the miner again.

Opened issue on this:
https://github.com/snowblossomcoin/snowblossom/issues/52


Fixed: https://github.com/snowblossomcoin/snowblossom/compare/f0f24b196c4b...0cc48cd28104

I'll cut a new release soon.

What file is field 3? I want to help seed this.

The torrent is here:
https://snowblossom.org/snowfields/snowblossom.3.torrent

They are all listed here:

Any discord or telegram?

We are pretty happy with slack.  So, no.
