Their policies are predatory at the very least. When there is a high network txn load it is highly likely that even txn's with fees will be delayed. Perhaps this is their way of deterring sophisticated double spend attacks, but it hurts the average user way more.

They are thieves no different from the rest of the ponzi scammers out there; and mark my words, don't be surprised when they disappear with everyone's bitcoins one day (or they get "hacked").

Well I had the same thing, but realy cant tell if those would have been found blocks without crash or not... Huh
But I sugest you use a pool, way better the solo mining I think. ( http://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=236.0 )

Yeah working better and higher hashes...but who knows when and how much I'll get paid...

As for the miner crashing when finding a block, maybe it's because I reset (deleted) the wallet.dat? It generated a new one ofcourse and I restarted everything but who knows, lots of bugs so far with the initial release.

I was mining on 30 linux shells @ 7-8 hpm average. I had a successful instance which mined a block and I then cloned that instance to 29 others, and eventually reset the wallets on each so there were unique addresses and no chance of redundant mining.

I noticed the bitcoind servers were going down on some of the servers... they were just turned off.  Happened about 10 times over past 24 hours. Having not mined anything, I finally looked at the logs, and this is what I saw at the tail end (3 different logs). Am I correct to assume it is crashing just as it finds a block and I have lost 10 blocks!?!

Regarding your question about randomization: do the logfiles show identical hashes on all machines? If not, I'd guess there's sufficient randomization.


I can't find the log/debug files on the linux version...is it active by default?
in with the data folder should be debug.log, by default this is ~/.protoshares/debug.log


So having analyzed the logs, and knowing the miners are using the same pregenerated keys (wallets) to create blocks, and are synced with the same transactions (low txn volume), I think I may be experiencing a huge loss of efficiency.  I have about 250 hashes per minute and am barely making blocks, about 3 over the past 24 hours.

I noticed this repeating string in the logs:

testHash ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff
Hash Target 0003ffc000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

I think every new transaction it reverts to this hash test. Meaning all the clients are performing this has over and over.

1) Am I confused? Is this even a problem?

2) Should I be aiming to change the wallet on each of my machines to unique addresses? Is there an easy command to reset the wallet?

3) Is there another way to avoid redundancy?

If anyone wants to earn a free protoshares block and can help me out send me your skype user over PM.

Thanks.

Thanks conrad, great answer. I'm using putty with a windows batch file and it gets the job done...and actually until those pregenerated keys are used up I guess I only have to monitor one instance.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: Invictus Innovations ProtoShares Cheat Sheet | CPU Mining | Unofficial on: November 08, 2013, 12:57:58 PM
I have 30 linux shells pumping out 7-8 hpm per minute each, running the protoshares bitcoind client, but I have a few concerns.

1) I cloned all of them so I was worried they are performing the same work, especially since the first new block found registered across all of the machines. I know that's not a direct correlation, and it's likely a pregenerated address for mining purposes, but im wondering if there is effective hashing randomization. Waiting for the next block, though I'll probably be checking each machine manually to find it (?) EDIT: listtransactions command is showing identical new activity across all machines...specifically an immature block. Am I analyzing this correctly? Does the client have a pool of pregenerated addresses?

2) Every new block reward is assigned to a new address, and I am looking for a way to easily have all new coins mined go to the same address.

3) It's a headache to do and monitor everything manually across all the shells, any ideas how to manage them all at the same time? pool? script?

Thanks.

Hey does anyone has trouble with dumpprivkey and importprivkey?

I can't transfer private keys between clients, and I'm not even sure they are backing up correctly. When i try to import it gives:

Invalid private key (code -5)

FYI, exact email I received, a little absurd if you ask me:

Hello, [name]! If you received the "Insecure Alias" error, then it is because aliases will no longer work for wallets which have no email account associated with them. This has been implemented as an extra security measure, and I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. If you do not know what your wallet identifier is, then we can help you recover it. We need at least two of the following to find your wallet identifier - your alias, the email address you used to create the wallet, or the IP address you used to create your wallet. As a last resort we may be able to track down your identifier if you provide your password and the date you created your account. Thanks!

To anyone who has run into this issue:

"Insecure Alias. Please login using your wallet identifier link."

I contacted them and they explained that they changed their policy, just a couple days ago, that aliases without an email attached will not work due to security concerns. They probably should have notified their users because I have a couple accounts which are not linked to anything and now I need the the ip with which I opened the account (?), the email with which I opened the account (HUH!?!) or my account password (yeah right). I think it's an unnecessary move, and don't really see the logic.

Well turns out deep in your browser's history, assuming you are not a security freak, are cookies with all the blockchain logins.  On chrome I entered:

chrome://settings/cookies

and then searched blockchain and there were a bunch of "Application cache" tabs and under each one was a different guid (wallet identifier) i had used in the past.

If this helps anyone out please post to this thread I'll be happy to know I'm not the only newb who doesn't backup his wallets (in my defense it was a disposable wallet which happened to have funds in it).

18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Need help finding video about computing power currencies issued by amazon on: August 27, 2013, 01:22:35 PM
Recently (Aug 23rd) saw a video which I assume was pretty new. Unfortunately I barely remember where or what it was about, except that it was an interview, not too long, seemingly on a news/economy channel and involved talking to a guy about bitcoin and digital currencies. He was pretty neutral about it, except that he made a note that future currencies should be created by companies like amazon and issued as guarantees of cloud processing/computing power.

I'm interested in viewing this clip again but I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know which clip this is?

Thx.
