<expletive> Anastasiya, banned ...

Just FYI, I have nothing to do with the coin or the team, but I did report your comment on the basis that ugly, sexist personal attacks don't belong here.  Air your grievances all you want, for all I care, but please do so in a civil way.

This also isn't the thread for promoting your conspiracy person - this is a thread for discussing Nexus.  That's not a judgement about whether you're right or wrong, it's trying to keep this thread useful for people who're looking for information or discussion about the coin and project.

But he began abusing ECA in ECA forum because of vexation n FOMO (Read the ECA forum about his abusing ECA for no reason at all) and started shilling about Nexus.  So I read about nexus because I know he is a loser and will move on after losing money in nexus also...but eventually I found nexus is 2014 made ...5 min block time and super slow transaction as of now...trying to ride fake hype...It made me laugh so hard on Mr. dickhead who left ECA in loss. And I m 100% sure Nexus is a scam.

(1)  Please debate with correct facts.  The trailing 24h overall block time was 49 seconds yesterday, not 5 minutes:

   https://nxsorbitalscan.com/block-channels

I'm not even sure where you got 5 minutes from.

There's a wealth of actual, correct information out there about Nexus, and I suggest anyone reading this thread avail themselves of it, starting with the official website: nexusearth.com.

(2)  How about both of you take a vacation from this ridiculous back and forth of trying to pump and deflate without adding any value to the discussion?  As Groestl correctly noted, most of the action on Nexus is in the Slack channel, not the bitcointalk thread.   And this is certainly not the place to debate the merits of ECA, whatever that is.

(1) You are an idiot! Read the first page. Block times are written on the first page.

Quote:
Block Time
300 seconds for Hashing channel
300 seconds for Prime mining channel
60 seconds for nPOH

Spoiler: 300 seconds is 5 minutes.

(2) How about you respond to my points. The NexusEarth slack is useless, there only non-technical people. As soon as they hear constructive criticism, they start to cry out loud and flame. All they do is price talks.

So find somebody technical and make that person respond to what I wrote about the 3DC being a scam, it's useless garbage, with the only goal to fool idiots. Check earlier posts that nobody responded to, for details.

Oh my goodness, I get the idiot treatment in red?.  I'm so flattered!

First, that may be what's in the first page, but it's not the block times in practice right now - they're coming in at 150 seconds (approximately) for hashing and prime, and a bit slower than 60 seconds for nPoS.  (nxsorbitalscan is down right now so I can't get the exact value).

Second:  It's amusing to be called an idiot by someone who doesn't seem able to calculate the expected block time when you have three different channels interleaved, any of which can produce a block.  You said it yourself:  By the design, every 300 seconds there's a block on hashing, every 300 seconds there's a block on prime, and every 60 seconds, there's a block on nPoS.  That's 288 blocks/day on each of prime and hashing, and 1440 blocks on nPOS, meaning a block about every 42.8 seconds on average.  (1/(1/300 + 1/300 + 1/60)).

(Again, that's by what's written on the first post, which is slightly incorrect vs the actual block times right now.)

I have no opinions about 3DC.  I haven't read the proposal in enough detail to have an opinion.  I treat everything in cryptocurrency as vaporware until proven otherwise.  That includes 3DC, it includes Bitcoin's magical unicorn lightning network, and it includes the majority of posts on bitcointalk.  I like Nexus whether or not 3DC pans out -- I put more stake in Jim Cantrell's large vested interest in the success of his software-defined satellite effort than I do in any announced features.

Thanks for the info on the block time.  It's frustrating with those idiots here, that just don't want to have a constructive talk, but rather claim bullshit like one person making multiple accounts and such. Such retards.


What you did is sum up the blocks created by each channel. That's not how it works.
The time between blocks isn't a constant. It can be 30 seconds, 10 min, 30 mins or whatever because block minting is based on the result of a hashing function, what's random.

It would be nice to see the Average, Variance and Deviation for the blocktime.

---

When looking at the charts over at https://bitinfocharts.com and doing what you did and use 84 blocks per hour than, that's still nothing compared to Ethereums 246 blocks an hour, but a lot more than BTC has, and a lot more than BCH has. But that's just one part.

I would love to see the average, variance and deviation for NXS.

---

What do you mean with the software-defined satellite?

Yes - my calculation above is a rough approximation assuming uniform block emission, but it's pretty close to the expected value of the average block time.  But more importantly, it's directly comparable to bitcoin's "10 minute" block time (which is also an expected value, with a horrible variance, as we all know).

For true average, variance, and deviation, perhaps Psipherious would be willing to add the latter two?  nxsorbitalscan already tracks average (which is where the 49 second time comes from).  It's analytically calculable, of course:  PoW-based blockchains can be viewed as a Poisson process.  This is an over-simplification because it ignores difficulty changes, but it's pretty close.  Picking the empirical mean of 49 seconds, that means that the variance is also 49 seconds, so the standard deviation is about 7 seconds.

Software-defined satellite platform:  Vector is hoping to launch a bunch of micro-satellites that can host multiple client programs, updated dynamically, running in little VMs on the actual sat -- kind of the Amazon EC2 of satellites:  http://www.galacticsky.net/

The exact way that Nexus would play into it is vague, but I suspect this is the reason for the Vector/Nexus partnership (other than the obvious blood relationship - Cantrell Sr. has a wide libertarian streak and seems supportive of the cryptocurrency ecosystem on that front as well).

at block 1632416, Nexus found its second length-11 chain of primes:  http://nxsprime.com/

congratulations as always to the devs, miners, and entire community.

i wonder if anyone would notice if i wore a shirt that said only:

"3677742950302760198233601508683799231587154899462038938391359776509684082743415 7816426944425342709421474441992212929633404915390367990494107824176339152333415 6321577115317329365327937040246989965901867629473842175162337144628047117159377 7833858217800885125128948179027793398966078231644963249642997007"

that makes two length-11 chains, so i will refrain from posting again until we've found five, and then ten, ... and then a length-12 chain.

What a beautiful run Nexus Earth had today. This is what I expected from a solid cryptocurrency. Nexus earth is a crypto that is here to stay for good. It has one of the most innovative ideas yet. I hope to see more and hear a lot more from the conference in Aspen next month.

Vector-R block 0.002 Launch! on Livestream https://livestream.com/accounts/25660170/events/7633093

aaaaand, success!  https://www.clickorlando.com/news/space-news/1st-launch-scheduled-thursday-for-spaceport-camden

Quote
Vector Space Systems, a small satellite launch company based out of Tucson, tested a rocket that the company hopes will put small satellites into space one day.
...
Liftoff happened just before 12:30 p.m.

"Building on years of research, Vector is continuing to work towards the next technical milestone in our development plan," Vector's co-founder and chief technology officer, John Garvey, said in a release. "Spaceport Camden's support of Vector's flight test will not only validate the engineering and technology behind our mission, but also propel Vector closer to an orbital capacity."

in less interesting news, the nxsprime.com stats show that all of the top-10 chains are now length ten.  Will update when Nexus finds its first length eleven chain.  Very excited.

but more importantly, a successful launch, and how the heck did you get ron paul to talk at the conference??  some impressive names in the speaker list.  it's almost like the rest of the world is starting to wake up and pay attention!

congrats vector, congrats nexus, congrats everyone!  exciting times ahead!

Nexus has now found seven 10-chains:  http://www.nxsprime.com/

Updates were broken for a while due to a bug that should now be fixed.

The list of the top 10 primes is also now directly downloadable in "TSV" format (tab-separated value) at:

Been solo mining for a few weeks.

Today I got my first rejected block. What's that about?



Also, my wallet has 8 connections to Nexus, how can I add more?

I'm at 4 orphans and 1 block after about a week mining. My buddy suggested a VPS which I can do, but sad that the common people can't mine Nexus Smiley

I've got 8 connections as well.

I'm in the Middle East these days, but tried on Wash. DC VPN, same result. There needs to be more chatter about Nexus, more support, nothing on the web and the official forum is dead.

as has been pointed out many times - all of the action is in the Slack channel.  you can get help with your question in seconds there.  try it out!

the rejected block usually happens because the wallet receives a new block at about the same time your miner finds a block.  when the miner has found the new block, it tells the wallet, but the new block is too low-difficulty based upon the received update.

the orphans can be a problem resulting from poor connectivity, or a slow wallet machine.  one solution is to make sure your wallet can accept inbound connections, and try to keep it running as long as possible.  this is also good for your trust key staking, and for the nexus network.

but come try the slack channel.  there are dozens of people in there who can help you, much faster than you'll get in this thread.

Second 10-chain was found 5 days ago, at height 1366553, and it's more dense than the first.

Looks like the release of the new miner has done great things for finding longer chains.

http://nxsprime.com/

Congratulations again to Videlicet, Mumus, and the entire Nexus dev team and community.  Now that there have been two 10-chains found, I'll wait to post an update until 5, and then 10... and then when Nexus finds its first 11-chain.

Huge congratulations to the dev team and the entire Nexus community:

The first length-10 chain was found two days ago at Block 1341679:  https://nxsorbitalscan.com/block.php?num=1341679

You want to say that each satellite they launch will contain on board a mini PC with a NEXUS wallet and a certain number of coins to support the node?
No, you use satellites for communication, not for wallet storage. Your PC/phone currently send and receive block transactions only from the Internet where nodes continually agree by consensus on the blocklist state. A satellite communication channel would  be the new way to communicate with nodes that does NOT route through the Internet.  The satellite itself could indeed be a node, but it would also work as a mere communication channel between Earth based nodes. Making the satellite a node would require more work, since indeed it basically needs to be a PC powerful enough to hash-check transactions and such. Not sure if the significant added complexity and wattage of that would offset the communication savings.

Yes, small sats like these have lifetimes measured in years, maybe not even 10 years. That's why you launch hundreds (or thousands?) at once, and then periodically to keep them "in stock".

These are (some of the) reasons Nexus may benefit from microsatellites, leaving out the obvious one of providing connectivity where infrastructure is poor, and, with connectivity, communication and digital currency exchange.  But the reverse direction is just as interesting.  I think it might be more interesting, in the longer term.

In addition to satellite launch capability, Vector is developing a software-defined satellite platform called Galactic Sky:  http://www.intelligent-aerospace.com/articles/2016/08/vector-space-launches-galactic-sky-software-platform-and-satellite-design-division-to-provide-access-to-satellites-space-data.html

Just like using earth-based cloud computing, Galactic Sky aims to let people rent (short-term or long-term) part of the capability of a microsatellite, be it for communication, imaging, secure storage, or a combination.  This would be a transformative thing:  Today, doing just about anything on a satellite costs millions to hundreds of millions of dollars.  Imagine a smart imaging analytics startup being able to rent the compute capability of one microsatellite for one trip around the earth.  Today, they would need to pay tens of thousands (or more) of dollars to pay an imagery company for a full data dump.  With a software-defined satellite platform, they could perform their analysis local to the camera, never having to downlink the data back to earth, except the pictures deemed most important.

and when you have a virtualized platform like this, you need a way to pay for it.  You could set up a huge payments infrastructure like Amazon does, but Jim Cantrell seems to have a pretty strong libertarian streak to him (to say the least), and I bet the idea of being able to use a completely decentralized, verifiable electronic currency platform to manage the resource rental must be very attractive.  If nothing else, you don't lose 3%+ to the credit card companies, and at best, you enable a huge global audience to gain access to your platform with very low overhead.

The Nexus-Vector partnership is a long game.  An interesting one, but also one that calls for patience.  Real rockets, the kind we saw successfully launch today, don't get built overnight.

The ones with the very small nonces are likely to be proof-of-stake blocks.  Don't forget that these are also in the mix and will account for the short block time you are referring to.  
Oh!  That explains a lot of my confusion. The proof-of-stake implementation details are especially vague. How are those mined?  (Who does the (obviously simple) computation for it and gets rewarded?)  Why is P-O-S  a 10 second block instead of for example folding it as an extra parallel step into hash and prime mining?    The P-O-S blocks, because of their 10-15 second duration, really dominate the Nexus blockchain storage size and bandwidth.

POS blocks don't have a 10-15 second duration.  They happen every 60 seconds:  http://www.nexusearth.com/specs.html

When you look at a mix of POS (150 seconds) and POW (60 seconds) blocks, the average time between any blocks should be about 42 seconds.  So it's no surprise that you see many blocks with 10-15 second duration, just like you see frequent Bitcoin blocks with 3 minute duration.

I don't know the answer to your design question.  Vid. would be the authoritative source on the reason behind it.  The POS blocks are also tied in with the trust keys, which is probably why they are independent, but I don't know.

Nexus has found its eighth 9-chain of primes.  Awesome work!   To avoid annoying with too many posts, since the coin is absolutely on fire and I expect many more primes soon, I'll post an update again once all of the top ten entries are 9-chains, or when Nexus finds a 10-chain.

http://nxsprime.com/


The top 10 chains from Nexus are all now length 9.  Great stuff!

I'll post an update when and if the network finds its first 10 chain.  Looking forward to more great innovations from Vid. and the Nexus team.

A programmer friend of mine wrote this to celebrate Nexus's contributions to finding prime clusters:

http://www.nxsprime.com/

It's not updated automatically yet, but could be if there is interest.
Congratulations to the Nexus team for everything they're accomplishing.

I didn't realize Nexus's prime numbers were so big! Are they 1024 bits?   I love the fact that the font has to be made SO SMALL just to put it onto the webpage.
How can you get a list of these records? I'm sure it's in the block database somehow, but is there a block explorer that shows them?  Your programmer friend obviously has a way to retrieve them.   Please show the top 1000 records, just because it'd be cool to show Nexus is computing interesting and useful math world record results, not (only) useless hashes like every other coin.

Sorry, answering without help here from what I know:

Q:  Are they 1024 bits
A:  I don't know, can someone else answer this?

Q:  Is there a block explorer that shows them
A:  Don't know, but I don't see them on either http://nexusoft.io/platform/Explorer or http://nxsorbitalscan.com/ .

Q:  How can you get a list
A:  Glenn posted a program to slack that he modified to get them.  The slack is very active... you should check it out.  It really shows the energy of the Nexus community.

Q:  Show 1000 records
A:  Wouldn't this be really crowded?  If you have an idea for how it might still look good it'd be great.  Why is 1000 better than the longest 10?

Glad you like it.  I asked him if he could make it update regularly, and he did now.
Since it was first posted, Nexus has found another 9-chain.  There are only three
8-chains left on the top-10 list.  Looking forward to the first length-10!
