Question: the newer upgrade to the stratum proxies has the ability to be web accessible - BUT - the anonymous nature of the stratum proxies will be forfeited ... the web page will show all stats and graphs including miners and ip ... is this ok? ...
yes - i have no issue with showing my workers and stats and graphs ... - 6 (50%)
no - keep the stats and graphs of my workers anonymous ... - 6 (50%)

------- theSITE -------


with a great deal of variety in algo and coin and applications - there seems to be only a very few basic things you need to get into crypto - and get hooked ...


theDRIVE - theKNOWLEDGE - theTOOLS ...


... theDRIVE ...

wanting to understand and 'deal' with crypto ...
the good and bad - the nice and ugly - the easy and hard ...
this is no spectator sport - you got to WANT to be in crypto - or you just fall behind or get left by the wayside ...


... theKNOWLEDGE ...

getting excited about what needs to be done is one thing ...
knowing and understanding HOW it is done is another animal altogether ...
read up - get with the lingo - and then get educated on the what - the when - the where - the how - the why ...


... theTOOLS ...

when drive and knowledge is at your behest ...
when you are ready for the next stage of the trip ...
when all has been said and done - and you are ready with everything ...
thats when developers come into play - and devs are some of the most crucial components within the crypto sphere ... if not - the most important of all crypto has to offer ...


developers are the ones that create the tools ...
the miners - the bricks - the mortar ...

they are the ones that allow us - the miners and users alike - to build ourselves up from ground level - into crypto communities and crypto stardom - to quench our insatiable thirst for all that is crypto ...


... theDEVS ...

we here at ACE are more than just network & infrastructure consultants - more than crypto enthusiasts - more than just merely miners ...

we here at ACE are - simply put - people with a vision ... a vision that looks deep into the future of crypto - and sees a world that is much more than it is now ...

we here at ACE are miners - are enthusiasts - are helpers - but most of all ...

are THANKFUL to those developers that have put in the effort and time and experience into producing the tools that we all need to continue mining and storing and trading coin in all shapes and forms and incarnations ...


... theBENEFITS ...

we here at ACE really like the simple way of doing things - in all we do ...

simplicity is the way of life - and a nice clean solid way of implementing services that can be used by us and the community alike - is what we strive for ...

the benfits for creating these links are numerous - but we focus on three main benefits ...

1 - memory ... you can actually remember the name of the urls easier than rememebring the btc addresses - because they are to donate to the dev using their name ...
2 - construction ... the miner commandline is simple - as the only things that actually change are the dev name and the port that you point the hash to ( for the algo ) ...
3 - change ... there is no need to change anything if single dev or seven decide to change btc addresses - for whatever reason they may have ... same url - same port - same mining address ...


... theNITTY ...

we have started - and will continue - the first few of a series of mining links and connections to donate to those developers that we have grown so fond ...

if you are a miner - or you are a user - or you are benefiting from the tools that these amazing developers have created ...
then follow us and help with donating to these fine devs by means of direct deposit to their donation addresses OR donate hash to their addresses instead - if in fact you would prefer to donate your mining hash ...

use their tools to help test them while you are at it ... there is nothing holding you back from mining with the same tools that the devs distribute - especially if its all open source Wink ...

below is the current and continually growing links to the btc address of the devs we have in our growing list ...

alongside the btc addresses - we have the servers setup for the respective devs we have listed below ...

this does NOT mean this is where we will stop ... not by a long shot ...

the devs on the list for implementation on the new servers as they come online are those that have an active interest in the community - and are active within the community ...

these links are currently for the devs listed - and all the links mine at nicehash on the EU stratum ...

we had them mining / testing on yaamp prior to yaamp disappearing for a little while due to issues beyond their control ...

due to the release of the yaamp code - and the new yiimp fork - we may likely use these yaamp clones as a failover if nicehash drops connection - or vice versa ...

for the time being though - the nicehash EU stratum is the sole site / stratum we will direct all hash to ... and as time moves forward will use the other stratums as failovers in the case of an EU stratum connection fail ...
the failover order will be set according to the 'smallest to largest ping test' from the servers themselves ...
as noted here - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=562238.msg11444048#msg11444048 ...
and here - https://www.nicehash.com/index.jsp?p=gstarted ...

each of the stratums will be brought into effect in order of service and when the previous stratum comes back on line - the mining will revert back to that stratum ...
currently - nicehash have the following order of stratum - each separated into two segments on the website - nicehash and westhash ...
EUROPE ( Amsterdam - Nicehash ) - USA ( San Jose - Westhash ) - CHINA ( Hong Kong - Westhash ) - JAPAN ( Tokyo - Westhash ) ...

this failover strategy will continue - but may also change without notice ( to add or remove pools as the situation allows ) ...  

nicehash themselves have kindly whitelisted our servers so they will not be kicked off their stratums when in idle mode if an algo is not being used ...
this allows the stratum proxies to remain active - reducing the time to start mining if a miner becomes active ...

if there is a problem or an issue with the links or mining hash on them - please let us know ...
via public post on the thread ...
via pm direct on bct ( chrysophylax ) ...
via email ( crysx@gnxs.com ) ...
via irc on #granitecoin ( http://webchat.freenode.net/?nick=crysx&channels=%23granitecoin&prompt=1 ) ...

yes we have our own coin - so feel free to mine / trade / use granite with us ...
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=718939 ...
we will eventually be integrating the donation links within the granite ecosystem - to allow much more freedom of choice to donate ...
more on that later - on the granite thread and website ...

your input and ideas with all we have created ( and all that we have propsed here ) are ALWAYS welcome ...

for your information - these systems and servers and stratums are setup for the devs listed - and the whole setup is coming from our own pockets ...
we will continue to maintain and troubleshoot the systems - as well as add to and improve this setup as long as we can continue to ...

for this reason - we have also added donation links for us also ( under donate-ace.granitecoin.com or donate-crysx.granitecoin.com ) if anyone wants to mine or directly donate to us ...
which will help us maintain the servers and connections ...
but for now - its all on us ...

if you would like to mine ( and subsequently test ) these links and report to us any issues you may encounter - all while donating to thedevs at the same time - then the details are as follows ...

each dev has his / her own area with their own unique info - all dev listings are in alphabetical order - all details may change without notice - all donation urls will remain the same ...


... theGRITTY ...

a few things you need to know before you construct the links for your miner ...

1 - all donation links start with 'donate-<developer>' ...
2 - all donation links are on the granitecoin.com domain ...
3 - all donation links have the same port structure <port> ...
4 - all donation links are in alphabetical order ...
5 - all donation links mine through nicehash currently - but can change at anytime ...
6 - all donation links start at port 7000 and increase by one in line with nicehash ports ...
7 - all donation links are statically set for each developer - so any <username>:<password> can be used in the miner ...
8 - all donation links can be checked by the nicehash btc links for the developers listed below ...
9 - all donation links are anonymous to the public - so even the smallest hash will help - no matter who you are ...

ie - stratum+tcp://donate-<developer>.granitecoin.com:<port>/ <username>:<userpassword> <kernel> <commandlineparameters> ...

for example ... if your developer of choice to donate mining hash to is ace / crysx ( the first on the list at the moment ) and you want to dbm using x11 ...

then the miner commandline ( or inside the .bat ) will look similar to the following ...


linux ...
./ccminer -o stratum+tcp://donate-ace.granitecoin.com:7003/ -O chrysophylax:x -a x11 ...
./sgminer -o stratum+tcp://donate-crysx.granitecoin.com:7003/ -u chrysophylax -p x -k x11mod ...

or ...

windows ...
ccminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://donate-ace.granitecoin.com:7003/ -O chrysophylax:x -a x11 ...
sgminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://donate-crysx.granitecoin.com:7003/ -u chrysophylax -p x -k x11mod ...


obviously this is the very basic structure to use - and you should investigate the best settings you require for your miner ... but the above is very simple guideline for use ...

this setup is the same with any other developer you wish to mine for - the only things that change are the devs name <developer> and the port number <port> ...
and obviously your <kernel> and <commandlineparameters> ...

the developers that we have currently in our list are below ( in alphabetical order ) - as well as the ports for the algos ... we will add to this list as the new servers become available - and are more than happy to research and consider the developers that you ( the community ) wish to see added ...

a list of devs and associated ports / algos will be summarized at the end of this op ...

... theLIST ...


for refernce only and to summarize the list of developers - servers - links ...

donation names ...

- ace ( or crysx )
- djm34
- kbomba
- klaust
- pallas
- sp
- tpruvot
- wolf0

ports ...

7000 - scrypt
7001 - sha256
7002 - scryptnf
7003 - x11
7004 - x13
7005 - keccak
7006 - x15
7007 - nist5
7008 - neoscrypt
7009 - lyra2re
7010 - whirlpoolx
7011 - qubit
7012 - quark

axiom and lyra2rev2 may be added shortly ... so if you want to see those algorithms available to mine - please let us know ...

situations like mining using nist5 ( port 7007 ) will more than likely give you errors - as there is pretty much NO ONE mining using the nist5 algo on nicehash ... so expect that one to continuously disconnect the miner and give errors ... this algo ( and a couple of others ) are only in the list for testing purposes of the server load while the community mines ... they will be taken off soon ...

to check the hashrates of the relevant developer address - please check the links below - and change to the desired algo that you want to check using the algo pulldown menu ...
as mentioned earlier - all the links are going through the nicehash eu stratum ...
our stratum proxies will eventually have the usa - jp - hk stratums as a failover in case the nicehash eu stratum happens to fallover ...
this will happen after a few weeks of stable dbm hashing by the community ...

nicehash statistics ...

these links send you to the EU stratum ( nicehash ) and set on scrypt algo ...
use the pull down menus to get to the stratum and algo you want to see ...

PLEASE BE AWARE ... this point has to be mentioned unfortunately and should be a matter of knowledge ...

x15 seems a little flaky lately on the US stratum - which seems a little odd and will notify nicehash soon ...

so far - all of the other links are currently functional as far as we can see ...

will keep an eye on them ...

"the devs on the list for implementation on the new servers as they come online are those that have an active interest in the community - and are active within the community ... these links are currently for sp"

yeah you are right... me, epsylon3, Schleicher have absolutely no interest in the community  Roll Eyes

yeah you are right... me, epsylon3, Schleicher have absolutely no interest in the community  Roll Eyes

you are definitely one of the ones that is next here djm ...

tpruvot - wolf0 - klaust - just to name a few others ... all the links have been set ( donate-xxx.granitecoin.com ) but are all dedicated and pointed to this one server ( as there is no way of just 'parking' the names ) - which is currently directed to the setup for sp ...

the issue is that the setup of these donation links are dependent on the availability and setup of the servers to hold the stratum proxies ...

i personally have been testing a few here - but there is only so much a single server can hold ( and 6 proxies is currently the max for the servers until the others come through ) ...

which means for every test stratum proxy - i have to knock one off and reset a new one for the test ... that has become something more of a nuisance than a test environment ...

so the new servers are on order and we are hoping to have them on-line by this coming weeks end ...

i can only personally do so much also - with the procurement and setup and organization of all that is necessary to implement these systems ...

with some personal issues that i have needed to take care of immediately - which is why i basically had to go away for two days - it becomes a load that i personally need to take care of a little at a time ... especially on a financial basis ... even though it is self inflicted - i really want to have a system setup to all those ( like you and sp and the others ) that have helped so much ...

so dont worry mate - you are one of the devs that have contributed a great deal to the community and your server has been on order for a few days now ... our farm and those miners that belong great deal of the community have been mining with the developments you have all made FOR the community ... which is what was iterated ...

CURRENTLY - its the sp server ... if you actually highlighted ( and re-iterated them in this post ) the more important parts about this being 'initial' and a 'testing' period - and took note of all that was said in the op djm - it was about setting more donation links for the devs that have helped the community and that are active in the community ... those devs in the opinion of the community as well as myself ... which definitely mean you and the others ...

we really dont mean any disrespect to anyone ... especially the devs ...

i just need to collate the details of the developer addresses and git and bct thread ( if they exist ) ... so your help in that way would be more than beneficial ... as well as the pseudo-names that everyone uses ( i know epsylon3 is tpruvot - but dont know anyone elses pseudo ... like Schleicher - not familiar with the name or pseudo ) ...

but without the servers - nothing can be setup ... and that takes time - especially since its my project and on my shoulders ...

so a little patience - and all will be sorted Smiley ...

im actually quite glad you took notice of this setup ...

we hope it will bring to light to the community at large that devs require support from us all ... the community of miners and the users of the tools that you devs all create - to continue the development of these optimizations and tools ...

in any case - i can do little now - as its very late and i need rest ... im completely worn out unfortunately ...

have a good night mate ...

chrysophylax I personally really appreciate the effort into doing this,....but have some question's / sugesstions

How does this differ at the moment as if you use MinerControl and set it with sp btc adress,...that's the way I've currently chosen to contribute/donate my one gpu, that i'm not using it full time?

will you expand it to all the other devs? and how will it be implemented? If the donator has to change the server address from donate-sp.granitecoin.com to donate-tpruvot .granitecoin.com, then,...we'll nobody is going to use it,...

maybe a solution would be a customized API to pull the correct "price" and let MinerControl do the rest. In order to do that you would need also a web site with a "dev pool" of where donators could vote which dev gets more "votes" and the one with more votes gets the higher price in the API, and offcourse the API has to be time limited according to the votes,...so the adresses of devs are switched fair and square according to the dev pool site,... It's a little bit of complicated but I think it can be done,...by someone who has that kind of experience...and what's even more interesting is if it takes really off then even devs get a direct feedback from the community about their work and therefore also more beer for them Wink

really appreciate your kind words and suggestions and questions ...

just to clarify ... there is no difference to setting the address up in the miner itself ( or through miner control - or any other mining software for that matter ) than setting the btc donation address itself ... except for two main points ( which i suppose DO make it a difference ) ...

1 - when using the donation links - it is completely anonymous to the general public as to who is mining ...
2 - the hashrate is aggregated and as such will produce a larger hashrate on a single miner than many many small miners ...

with this - it allows reduced load on the stratum servers at the pool that you mining at - and creates a single anonymous miner for donation using this aggregated hashrate ...

also - i have found that the idea that even the smallest miner can 'add' to the hashrate and help alongside the medium to larger miners - is something that a lot of people prefer to do ...

its the same analogy as the drop of water in the ocean ... it really means little - unless you realize that billions of drops make that body of water ...

so no matter how small your miner - it is beneficial ( and in some cases - more enticing ... as some miners dont think that their contribution would be much - until it is added to all the others ) to mine with others ...

as for the other devs - YES! ... definitely ...

we would not have the size of farm that we have currently ( apart from my personal investment ) had it not been for the likes of devs - sp - djm34 - wolf0 - tsiv and a few others ...

the issue is more time and money - than facilities ... all this does cost in terms of finances as well as time ... we have the facilities - now to get the hardware / cloud services purchased and active ... which leads us on to the reason the donation link was broken up to names ...

if you mine on the link donate.granitecoin.com with the same ports as above - you will find that it mines at exactly the same place ...

the reason is that the original donation link ( donate.granitecoinx.com - which changed to donate.granitecoin.com when we finally got the domain ) was simply donate.granitecoin.com combined with port of the donation algo ...

the issues that arose with this is two fold ...

1 - the ports were numbered to algo and dev accordingly - but became quite confusing ...
eg - donate.granitecoin.com:7898 and donate.granitecoin.com:7989 for donation to djm34 and sp respectively using x13 and x11 ... it is much easier to remember donate-sp or donate-djm34 or donate-wolf0 than to remember which port each one belongs to on which algo ...

2 - the servers themselves were running out of working space as each stratum proxy takes its chunk of RAM ...
so unless there was a HUGE server running HUGE cores ( 12 would suffice for a large server - with multiple cpu's ) and MASSIVE amounts of RAM - there would be no way of redirecting the link to the right server ...

as a separate server and separate donation link - its easier to manage - as nicehash is also finding out with their new dns reshuffle ...

it also makes it easier for separate servers to use the same ports so that x11 is one port - x13 is another - and so forth - on each of the servers ...

if there is a way to have the ONE donation link - and redirect it to the various ip's of the various servers - then i would be more than happy to implement ...

your idea of an API that supplies the info to the miner is a good one ...

same with the website - though i think the website would be a damn site easier to produce than the api Smiley ...

though the idea sounds like it would be complicated to implement - i think the simpler that we make this ( for the time being anyway ) - the better ... at least until it can be used as a standard - if it ever does ...

so if i understand this correctly ... a voting system via the website that determines which dev - that determines which algo - that mines according to an API that points the miner to the donation address based on the original vote ... wow Smiley ...

a nice algorithm that would be Smiley ... but one which alas - i cannot implement without the help of a dev that can do that ...

as a start though - would anyone know how ( or know anyone that knows how ) to redirect an address based on port? ... ie - single address ( donation.granitecoin.com ) where pot 9797 goes to server xxx.xxx.xxx.1 and port 9897 goes to server xxx.xxx.xxx.2 ...

at the moment they are a-record redirections to server ip's ( the one vps at the moment - until the others come on line )  ...

tanx for you feedback - its much appreciated Smiley ...

hi all ...

a small update with regards to the vps systems / servers ...

the company responsible for the provision of the servers have been in touch - and will hear from them again shortly regarding the new vps's ...

which means we will have our own donation links setup soon ... and hopefully have the other servers setup for the donation links to the devs also ...

please do give generously to the awesome devs - whether direct btc or mining ... when the servers come online - or using their btc addresses ...

all this information will be available on the OP in the coming days ... we require all the information we can about each of the devs ...

so if anyone knows ( the dev themselves provide the info please ) their links to - btc address - github - bct thread - social media ( facebook - twitter - etc ) then please pass it on to us here - or pm me direct ...

we also would like to ask which of the devs you would like to see on the list of donation links on the site ...

so far - we have a few in the list - and they are in no specific order ...

- sp
- djm34
- wolf0
- tpruvot
- tsiv
- pallas
- kbomba
- klaust

if there are some devs that anyone would like to see on here - let me know ... and if we can implement the donation links with the systems we currently have ordered - we will put them on also ...

tanx ...

x15 seems a little flaky lately on the US stratum - which seems a little odd and will notify nicehash soon ...

so far - all of the other links are currently functional as far as we can see ...

will keep an eye on them ...

#crysx

Connection to X15 will be terminated, if there are no orders to work on. Check here https://www.westhash.com/?p=allorders&a=6

i received the instructions for the debug - and i have just finished setting it up as per the instructions ...

it seems the connection is alive and have directed our test miner ( 2 x gigabyte 750ti oc lp ) to mine x15 for the hour using the 2stratum ...

if the only issue is simply that there are no orders - why does it drop the connection altogether to the proxy? ... why does it not keep it alive and wait for the next order to come in? ...

x15 isnt as widely used as others - so its not a be all and end all ... but if these issues do actually exist - then i would have thought that trying to find a resolve would be preferable ...

i hope it is just as simple as you say it is ... that would be such a relief on our end ... Smiley ...

Stratum protocol does not support connections with no work. Miners would behave unexpectedly if there was no work provided, some may even just idle. We cannot provide work, if there are no orders, because we get work from orders.

yes - i understand that ... and i appreciate the explanation ...

so simply put - dont panic if the connection drops as its going to be due to lack of work Smiley ...

tanx again for clearing that up ...

btw ... the stratum proxy is still on the test stratum for x15 - just for your benefit if you needed it for the hour Smiley ...

hi all ...

apologies for the downtime ...

a little system issue with the current vps for the donation links caused the links to stop working ...

the vps seemed to have a spat and locked the java threads that run the proxies ...

all good now ...

will look more indepth at them tomorrow - and figure a workaround for the automatic reset of the stratum proxies for such an event...

we are also running through these donation links ... and had mining idle for a short while also ...

afterall - this is a test system that needs a few bugs worked out Smiley ...

hi all ...

a little update ...

we have been notified a couple of days ago that only two new servers can be commissioned for now by the supplier ...

this is still quite good news as this means we can now commission a total of 3 servers for the donation mining systems - while we wait for the rest to go online ...

the news that we have received is that the migration to the new datacenter is going slowly but surely - and so the two new vps systems can be online about 30th june 2015 ... we are definitely looking forward to this ...

in the meanwhile - there is no particular order to the developers with which we will be placing on the donation list ...

our farm comprises of two parts - amd and nvidia ...

as stated - the nvidia side uses ccminer-spmod as the dominant miner ... the amd side uses sgminer with wolfs x11 binaries ( due to the fact that granitecoin is x11 based ) ...

from time to time there are others that are used - but those are the main miners ...

we did start with sp as the test donation links - as we use ccminer spmod with the nvidia part of the the farm - and so we believe it would be fair to say that sp will be on the first server ( which was originally the test server - so he is already setup - just port changes will be required ) ...

so ...

the first server we would like to commission the donation system to sp ...
the second second server wolf0 ...
the third to djm34 ...

as the fourth and fifth ( and so on ) servers come online - we would like have the systems commissioned by the vote of the community ...

the first three will happen this week - which means the servers will be online and the op updated with all the details we can gather about the devs by the end of the week coming ( ie - sunday 5th july 2015 adelaide australia time ) ...

if you ( the user - the miner - the viewer ) have a preference to a developer ( or developers ) that you would like to see for the donation links ( and also on the website when it eventually comes online ) - please comment your suggestions with the links to the developers bitcointalk thread and github link and their btc donation address ... any and all details would be welcome ...

please let us know your preference to the algorithms that you would like to mine as a donation also ...

currently we have active - x11 x13 x15 neoscrypt lyra2re quark ... all on different ports ...

depending on the community suggestions - we can change and / or make permanent the different algos - keeping in mind that a maximum of 7 algos on the one server will be the limit ...

we do have a list of devs that we would like to add - but we can only go so fast and spend so much on servers for the project ... which means it will happen on a slower basis than we would like ... but it will happen ...

if any of the devs have any input - it would be very much appreciated ... please comment here - or pm me - or email me at crysx@gnxs.com - or irc #granitecoin ...

tanx ...

hehehe ... the servers have yet to be commissioned - but i have been given the go ahead for them on or after the 30th ...

and as stated - the supplier can only allow another two servers by the the 30th ...

but it will only be a matter of time when they move their vps system to a new datacenter - and thats probably when they can commission a few more servers for us ...

tpruvot is epsylon3 - yes? ...

is there any info we can access from you - that would help a great deal ...

in your sig is your donation btc address - now for your thread here on bct ( if you have a unique one specifically for your fork of ccminer ) and / or website and git ( we already have your git address if you are tpruvot ) ...

i personally used your miner when i first started in mining with cpu - yes cpu - and then ccminer for older nvidia cards ... have grown a lot more than that now Wink ...

which is one of the main reasons we wanted to give back - or at least do our part to give back - to the devs that have helped us and the community in general ...

without you guys - we would have mediocre miners and mediocre algos with mediocre results ...

good times ahead Smiley ...

i dont need to think much the miners i have are fewble for this i mean only sha 256 miners and good mhs scrypt miners can do the job im a bit out for this but i consider this porpuse good if done 1 year ago for scrypt was like aGPU profitable

we believe quite the opposite ...

we believe that it is STILL a good thing to donate to the devs that are STILL making a difference to the community ...

ALL of them ...

we couldnt do what we are doing in the mining community without them - period! ...

a great deal of the algos that are STILL in use and are STILL being used for mining ( with some being a lot more profitable to that end ) with these devs developing and optimizing for the community ( and it is a HUGE community ) of gpu miners ...

thank you for the positive comment on it being a good purpose - but we believe these devs need all the help they can get NOW - not just a year ago ...

unless of course you are saying that YOU would have been better to have donated via mining donation a year ago Wink ...

1AJdfCpLWPNoAMDfHF1wD5y8VgKSSTHxPo - possibly Wink ...

so would you like me to add this address as your donation address - or the address in your sig? ...

up to you mate ...

and your name actually is tanguy pruvot? ...

ill put that also if this is correct ...
