1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] ZERO - fork of Zcash with harder mining params on: November 12, 2017, 02:19:19 AM
Gack I feel bad that I haven't gotten back to you on Windows build stuff in more detail, I am STILL on antibiotics and juggling too many things while sick.....I'll drop you build setup instructions, I need to dust off the version I'd written up before for zcash windows builds and update them

-David Mercer
Tucson, AZ


Milestones completed:
3 fully working stable pools

Milestones close to completion
1) Windows Wallet
2) Website

Near Future Milestones:
1) More exchanges (Currently on Cryptopia)
2) Update Miner to work on Windows for Nvidia cards

Online Resources
New repo with the latest codebase and instructions https://github.com/zerocurrencycoin/zero
Pre-built Ubuntu binaries https://github.com/tearodactyl/zero/releases/tag/v1.0.12
New Twitter account, that everyone should follow https://twitter.com/zero_currency
New sub-Reddit, that you too can comment on https://www.reddit.com/r/zero/


So, the unpaid Santa's helpers have been busy, but we got somewhat sidetracked by other important stuff.
David's wrapped-up in maintenance on Zcash and Hush
Lokko and Fido have brought up a new mining pool
Tearo (that's me) has been helping out with validation of Bitcoin Gold. Regardless of how I feel about the project, need to make sure that it's not a complete disaster on launch and that people don't lose coin due to replay attacks.

So, these side projects are wrapping up and we'll continue hammering away at building a solid baseline of code and online services for this coin.

As to future plans and the roadmap, we have some amazing ideas.  But I'm not getting distracted by those until the baseline is in place.

P.S. Totally remember that we've pulled together and collected the bounty of 1500 ZER for the Windows port of the codebase.  David Mercer is just about the most qualified fellow to get this done, as he will, soon. But we are hanging on to the bounty till he does and it all works and the process is well documented.

Sending from T1 to T2 or vice versa = No problem in wallet OR Zero explorer
Sending from Z1 to Z2 or vice versa = No problem in wallet OR Zero explorer (They don't appear in zero explorer as per normal since they are Z- addresses)

Sending from T1 to Z1 OR Z2 = minor problem = Wallet shows correct overall balance BUT for some reason a random amount of zero gets transfered to T2(Both wallet addresses are mine). The amount chosen to go to Z1 OR Z2 transfers correctly. The zero explorer shows correct data (shows both tx's)
Example: T1 balance = 2 zero
T1 sends 1 zero to Z1 OR Z2 and although 1 zero gets to Z1 OR Z2 correctly AT THE SAME TIME a random amount (let's say 0.40) goes to T2 automatically.
So now we have
T1 balance = 0.60 zero
Z1 OR Z2 balance = 1 zero
T2 balance = 0.40 zero

Sending from T2 to Z1 OR Z2 = No problem. This is weird though because you would think that the above example would happen here also.

Hope this helps...


This is behavior inherited from upstream bitcoin v0.11.2, which is when zcash forked from it.....when you send from a taddr and it has to split a UTXO, it gets send to a randomly generated change address in your wallet.

Oh man I hadn't seen this yet....the port of 1.0.12 I dropped today is native win32 exe's cross compiled from Debian 8, rather than WSL (cross compiling on Ubuntu is busted...I mean, it BUILDS, but it has a flaky win32 pthreads and pegs a cpu at 100% ALL THE TIME).

You actually don't want WSL binaries, as they 1) are slower than cross compiled native ones and 2) current zcash doesn't build on it out of the box either (open issue for it!) and 3) it takes a lot of funky conf file games because 4) ipv6 doesn't work on it.

So, I can give you a nice, simple procedure to follow to cross compile if that is ok for the bounty!

I do not have the time to work through the details of the Windows build, and hereby declare a bounty for a competent developer.
Requirements:
Develop and test a procedure for building Zero 1.0.12 on Windows 10, to generate a set of 64-bit executables:  zcashd, zcash-cli
Use your own Github repo for work-in-progress commits, and zerocurrencycoin/zero repo for discussion and pull requests.
Preferred method would involve using the Bitcoin build method for Windows, via Windows Subsystem For Linux and Ubuntu 16.04, as described in doc/build-windows.md
Additional information and support will be provided to the developer taking on the project

Acceptance test: I will follow the procedure verbatim, to configure a fresh install of the WSFL and Ubuntu, libraries, compiler, etc, and to run build commands.
Resulting executables will be used to load the entire Zero chain, perform CPU mining (2 threads tromp), and complete Z and T transactions that were initiated via zcash-cli and via the Java Swing GUI wallet.
Zcash Testing should pass: full-test-suite.sh and rpc-tests.sh

The community has to pull together here and donate enough ZER for the bounty, to motivate a competent developer.
Use the following address, that I will administer t1gpJ3VtjecLrAfoUBVS1D9P5g8txEUfsek
I will start with donating 100 ZER
There is 7200 ZER being mined every day, and some 1.8 million have been issued already.
If we cannot collect at least 1000 ZER for this one task, then maybe this coin is just not that useful to people and does not have sufficient community support to warrant further development.

fyi I have NOT tested CPU mining with it yet, that's up next as soon as I finish syncing!

Folks, I'm super impressed.
Since last night, in addition to 370 from lokko, there was a number of donations ranging from 100 to 250, which now takes us to 1500.
Keep them going, and we are likely to attract a developer of substance to do a quality job.
I'll start asking around...

Good news!
I've talked the developer who originally produced a Windows build for Zcash, and who's now the lead dev for Hush, to look at porting Zero codebase to Windows.
I'm hopeful that someone at his level of experience will get this done and tested in the next several days.

with tromp? ... mmm i will re-test it .. the first time it does not works  Huh

note that it didn't start mining until I sent it the command:
zcash-cli setgenerate true 1

after it was synced to 100%
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] ZERO - Bounty on: October 30, 2017, 08:37:05 PM
Oh and it wasn't mining I think because I DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH FREE RAM!!!!!
I closed some stuff and now at least when I give the setgenerate command, it DOES mine, with standard or tromp solver. Not fast, omg, windows is always slower, and then with the harder params zero uses, omg!



i think that problems are on parameters K and N, i try first time with tromp but obviously not work with 200 and 9 


I turned on mining but not the tromp solver and it still doesn't mine, even when I tell it to with setgenerate on the cli

Hmmmm cpu mining does not seem to be working when i add:
gen=1
genproclimit=1

to my zero.conf....is there something else you need to add to your conf for zero that's diff than other zcash forks to cpu mine???

one thing that I don't know if it is unique to windows (guessing not), but it always says progress=1.00000 when it should be the fraction of the longest chain the node knows about that is synced.

the github repo I'm working on HUSH in is at: https://github.com/MW-zdash/zdash (I had a zcash fork in my personal repo below so I had to make a new namespace on github!)

When things are tested and shake out as fine, I'll push up to the repo under the HUSH github org at https://github.com/myhush

Still working on getting all the stuff internally rebranded to HUSH, more news soon!

Of course, someone can just dig around in my forks and yank out the right stuff from various branches for a Win/Mac port of zero...after all its all MIT licensed, and that's what zdash are doing Smiley
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] ZERO - fork of Zcash with harder mining params on: February 26, 2017, 02:15:39 PM
If this coin was slightly more liquid or had dev bounties, I'd consider doing a Windows version for it...I did the port of Zcash to Mac, Windows and arm64, zclassic to Mac (and helped with Win), and just did the port of Komodo to Windows (another Zcash fork with....other things added Smiley )....as I find this coins concept intriguing...but I don't have the time right now to do it for nothing.

I also did the initial work on getting the Insight explorer working for Komodo, and have done customizations of it for clients for Zcash, and ported bitnodes to zcash (znodes, in my github).

So if this coin is at all alive and kicking later in March, I may do an explorer and Windows port on a lark if they are still not there.

If I had the gear to mine it, I'd do it sooner.
