Is there such thing as "difficulty" in terms of proof-of-stake?

Yes there is. You can see it with 'getdifficulty'.

Weekly Update #5

  • This week we have seen proof-of-stake blocks start showing up on block chain. Difficulty of proof-of-stake has dropped from the initial 256 to about 80 now. It is expected proof-of-stake difficulty continue to drop over next week and proof-of-stake blocks become more frequent.
  • v0.2.1 has been released. This is a bug fix release and upgrade is not required. checkwallet issues have been fixed in this release.
  • A block explorer is made available this week courtesy of dreamwatcher.
  • Proof-of-work difficulty continued to drop this week and now seems to have stabilized around 10000.

Have fun and next week!

I do not believe you can completely decrypt a wallet once encrypted. You could just change the passphrase to one letter or just send the PPC to a new unencrypted wallet.

I keep a flash drive in a desk drawer with only unencrypted backups of my wallet.dat files for various coin. The idea being that the flash drive never goes online, so short of a physical break in, unencrypted back up wallets cannot be stolen.

This is just a basic protection for everyday use, some people go as far as to print out the private keys and store those instead.The important part of your wallet is the private keys, with those the client can reconstruct your wallet. Those keys are what gives you the ability to send transactions using the public key (Your coin address) and in fact your public address is derived from the private keys in such a way that it would be dam near impossible to reverse the procedure to derive the private keys.

Any bitcoin calculator should work. For example, putting your hashrate and the ppcoin difficulty into this one gives about 10 hours on average, or 1 day 6 hours to 95%. Are you sure you don't have immature blocks? They won't show up in your balance and take 520 blocks to mature.

However, they should show up in the raw list of transactions, available via "ppcoind listtransactions". Also note that the current block reward is much higher than 50 Smiley

(I just realized my script shows them as regular transactions; I did not care to check the "immature" bit, since I've done most of my *coin mining via pools. I admit it's fun to solo mine for blocks again Wink)

Which miner are you using? It has been reported and verified that cpuminer 2.x does not work with solo mining of ppcoin.

So what does difficulty 1 represent, a certain amount of coin-age you need?

proof-of-work difficulty 1 represents 4 billion (2**32) hashes.
proof-of-stake difficulty 1 represents 4 billion (2**32) coin-day-second, that is, if you have 1 million coin-day you can roughly expect a difficulty 1 block in 4000 seconds. Also note the coin-age calculation here requires the age to be over 30 days and capped at 90 days.

ok thank you for that rubberduckie, for some reason your simple 5 lined response worked. I now have a client and ive started mining with pheonix.

couple of issues:

1. should I use the same settings as bitcoin mining within my phoenix bat file? I cant seem to get device=1 to work, simply crashes when I put both in the instruction line.  at the moment I use this:

phoenix -u

http://PQBv6xTcYb5ZTs2pRRxZSmjBYCxYmFSRJs:password@ppcpool.us.to:9942 -k phatk VECTORS fastloop BFI_INT -q 3 AGGRESSION=21 WORKSIZE=128 device=0

2. when mining it does not display my speed (kh) is there a reason for this... apparently I am doing 0 kh but submitting shares

3. when mining with ppcpool i am getting alot of no work idle errors, will adding a higher -q value help?

4. when do the ppc actually go to my wallet?


I should have mentioned this is a dual card rig non crossfired. cant seem to get two instances to work either. anyway below is what i am currently getting... as u can see theres plenty of idle time and note 0 speed

yes i am sure i have not received anything i even get blank results with the ppcoind listtransactions i am using cgminer not sure what the problem is sigh i know the set-up works as i am able to pool mine with results and i get a connection to the ppcoind server so i guess i am unlucky Sad
