Also can't read much of code but, larger block size is a GOOd thing. Why? more hashed information per unit block. Not just for bitcoin transactions, but for any information to be stored in a block and validated by the network. Can't you see why this is a good thing? bitcoin blocks can be used for more thanjust bitcoin transactions. good thing in my books.

The blockchain is already what? 30Gigs? 40gigs?  That's a lot of storage and a lot of bandwidth. If you were to increase the size of the blocks it will become very costly for individuals to run full nodes, leading to centralization.

Also removes the idea of scarcity in the block. To maintain the incentive for the miners is to maintain the security of the blockchain. Once the reward gets cut down it is imagined that the fees will replace this incentive. Scarcity and an open market fee structure would hopefully provide enough incentive to keep the miners interested.

I'm not fully on the side of either camp just yet, any changes (or stubborn refusal to change) could result in unintended consequences. I'm just saying we should tread lightly.

Just because the block size is 20 MB doesn't mean they will be full at the time. Even with the current limit 1 MB hardly ever hit.

Bandwith and storage are getting cheaper as time goes on.

Well, that broke the nov/dec 2014 pattern.

It did. False breakout?  Grin

Regarding the fiat amounts in the tx tab. Currently they are moving with the price. Is it possible to fix the entry at the rate at the time of the tx?

How many IPs do you see when they're all connected doing a network scan?
288  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: The cost of electricity in the world on: February 26, 2015, 04:23:27 PM
based on my Knowledge
most of the mining farm in china pay the electricity according around 0.07-0.08$ per kwh including bitmain's farm

Wow, really? i thought it would be sub 0.05 for sure.
289  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: HELP! SP20 Networking issues. on: February 26, 2015, 06:43:11 AM
Find all the IPs on the network using a tool like nmap or similar. Then you can access the interface for each SP20 by entering the IP address in your browser.

Seems you can't take the variance. Look at the first table in this post and go with any above BTCGuild, if you can.

Alternatively you could split your hash power on pools.

I think you got
Code:
"load-balance:true",

Should be
Code:
"load-balance":true,

Sorry, my bad. Just compare it with the other strings already present and you will see how they need to be formed.

So i just type vi /etc/cgminer.conf.template "load-balance:true" ?

Not quite. vi just calls the vi editor to open that file. To edit it you hit "i", then cursor to the appropriate place (after the first "{", IIRC) and enter the above info, also needs a comma after "true". Then hit Esc and type ":wq". I can't get screen shots at the moment, but can do once I get access again.

Look at this for reference: https://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer/blob/master/example.conf, although it will look quite differently on your screen, i.e. no nice formatting. But the info is the same.

I haven't seen Spondoolies support very active in this sub-forum, so probably it should be mentioned this probably will void your warranty. Also, whilst this works on mine, I'm not saying it will on yours.  Tongue

Oh thanks for the information, I didn't know these things. So only with the latest version of bitcoin core? And what about for the previous versions?

Yes, only the latest one. Read the changelog page I linked to (above). Previous versions would connect to peers, but only one of them would be the "sync" node - the node your node would get the blockchain from. This could suck if that node was on a very slow line. So to know some quick ones @shorena came up with that nice list (there are other lists too, i.e. on the wiki, but the speed is not posted on those).

Bitcoin Core 0.10.0 is already a quarter of the nodes known to bitnodes.io, so this "sync node" issue very much likely a thing of the past.
297  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: Spoondolies sp20 split pools on: February 25, 2015, 04:34:05 PM

As it says on the Pools page to change the template, ssh in to your miner and do the edit using:

Code:
vi /etc/cgminer.conf.template

thanks for that I may do so.

One of these days I will try and incorporate it in the starting line for cgminer. Maybe the quota works that way.

One thing that really sucks about the SP20: Why couldn't they just use cgminer in the way everybody (well, me Wink) was used to it? We can't upgrade it and we can't do our own confs.  Huh

But let's say someone is running the Bitcoin Core for first time so he need to download the blockchain , how the Bitcoin Core will choose from where to download the blockchain ? Randomly ? or same country etc ... ?

~ Madness

For the very first time there is a discovery from DNS seeds. All discovered peers are put in a file. On future starts it will try to connect to those peers again, unless that file was deleted and it will look for the DNS seed again.

I can't give you a secure answer but I think that the node is chosen randomly (but I'm not sure).

No, if you run the latest version it will download from all available peers (after it has the headers).  https://bitcoin.org/en/release/v0.10.0

Which node you download from don't matter much anymore. The speed issue is a thing of the past, thanks to the headers first solution.

As such I also expect that the QoS / Netlimiter issues are a thing of the past (unless somebody connects to your node only on purpose of course).
