I've been doing a bit more work on a possible solar staker setup using a C.H.I.P. small computer. This is a low powered Linux computer (similar to the original Raspberry Pi in performance) but comes with built in storage, wifi, bluetooth and battery controller. I've been running a wallet on this device for just over a month and it seems to have been working well and generating some coins through staking. It's also coped with going offline and loosing power a few times as the battery gets drained.

Obviously to be useful as a solar staker it needs to be able to run from solar power, and keep running from a battery when there's not enough solar energy. I've started some work on this by testing a couple of different lipo cells. With one battery I've tested I'm able to get around 16 hours of runtime and it took around half the time to re-charge. I've got some more tests to do about recharge rates to see if it can be charged faster if given enough power. I'm currently waiting on a couple of small solar panels and hope to get some idea of what might be required once those arrive. Obviously solar output will depend on time of year and location so won't be the same for everyone.

There's also some talks happening behind the scenes about how it should be possible to use this solar staker with some ideas for providing a local web interface as well as the possibility for a small LCD screen. I've also been looking at how things like battery state can be queried from code and as I get anything useful I'll try and integrate that into the IRC bot that runs on this same CHIP.


how did you get a C.H.I.P computer when they say they aren't shipping until october? just going off their website, maybe they are sold elsewhere? im very interested in this computer and your idea of using it for solar staking

The device originally started on kickstarter sometime in 2015, to the best of my knowledge. All those had been shipped as of January this year.

They have been selling them in batches of preorders since.

^^ahh my mistake, im always a day late and a dollar short, especially with technology. the solar staking reminds me of solar coin, not to hijack the thread, but is there any communication with the solar coin group? perhaps a partnership in the future? cross promotion maybe at the very least could be advantageous to both coins/groups. just a thought.

Our good friend GrumpyTiger is experimenting with a solar-powered Pine64 staking EverGreenCoin. He is wrapped up with some personal matters, but he said I could share his picture with the community.
That looks awesome - I need to get myself one of those =) I'd probably need some backup power over here in the UK as we don't often get sunlight =)


I live in Ohio where we have much overcast most all of the year from the great lakes. In the winter when we have very few daylight hours, it seams like we don't see the sun for days. I have never had the pleasure of visiting the UK but, I did have a once in a lifetime journey to Ireland, thanks to my crypto involvement. We are planning for areas like yours and mine, starmman, and designing a way more panels/batteries can be added. We also, as of Monday, are adding the ability for the EGC solar staker/miner to be plugged into a wall outlet for those that live in a flat/apartment that may have little or no daylight inside nor the ability to place a device outside.

The pictures device is not the device we are presently designing the EGC solar staker/miner around. Because we are aiming for a price under 100 USD we need to focus more of that cost on panels and batteries, we are designing around a CHIP. The Pine64 is an interesting device and so are the solar packs GrumpyTiger has pictured. But the Pine64 seems to be an overkill that would need even more panels and more batteries to run, pushing costs far above the target. The EGC solar staker/miner will also not have a keyboard nor a mouse as it will be accessible via a web browser on the same attached local network. We also are experimenting with a small LCD, which may be an optional add-on.   

We are doing our very best to design the EGC solar staker/miner as a product that can be used in as many geographical locations as possible. Community ideas or comments are greatly appreciated. Thank you all!

There are chats and discussion about the staker in a devoted channel on the slack.

New inputs never hurt. Smiley

There has been parallels and comparisons made in the past. Actually, I was just in a meeting where SolarCoin was brought up by a meeting participant that had a less-than-desirable experience working with that project. I myself have never had any direct communication with them but, of course respect them for their like-minded project and the great progress they have made with it.

I personally feel that one of the many advantages EverGreenCoin has is the intent to serve a much broader spectrum, and not a specific niche of 'green'. It might come as a surprise to many of you, because I have never publicly explained, that this is where the name of EverGreenCoin actually came from, Ever[thing]Green. You may notice anytime I spell out EverGreenCoin, I always do so with a capitol 'G'. I never call it EvergreenCoin as it is often mistakenly refereed to as. It also draws attention to and emphasizes the EGC trade symbol. Actually it is a bit of a pet peeve of mine.

I do agree that it might be advantageous for both projects as I think both projects potentially stand to gain from some cooperation. I will approach them in the future and see if their is any possibility of that from their perspective.

And no, you're not hijacking the thread at all. Most any discussion is welcome. Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

I ordered mine back last November when they started pre-orders on Cyber Monday, It was shipped to me in July.

The google hangout, even though it was spur-of-the-moment, was a great success! Myself, Giz, Forsty, and drofxafm had some very good conversation. EverGreenCoin is really blessed with a lot of like-minded community members. The conversation was very enjoyable and fluid.

I would like to arrange a scheduled google hangout for this weekend. Either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, whichever day serves the majority of the community. Myself and everyone else in today's hangout seemed to be open to have it on any day this weekend and at anytime. We are all very willing to be flexible to allow for the attendance of people that might not have an as flexible schedule.

So, I would like to open it up for discussion. If you would like to attend an EverGreenCoin community google hangout this weekend, what day and time would be best for you to be able to attend?

Thanks everyone! We hope to make this a weekly event. I look forward to it greatly!

Sounds great. I currently to a small amount of XMG staking on a raspberry pi (anoter coin with eco credentials) which only uses a couple of watts of power, but its plugged into a monitor which takes much more power when on - solar capability, even for the monitor would be a great next step. I'm sure the magi (XMG) community would be interested in this too =)

i agree with many points here the pine 64 did turn out more costly with the board, case, 7 inch lcd touch screen, and Wifi 802.11BGN/ Bluetooth 4.0 Module it ended being around 100 and thats not including cords, keyboard, mouse ect. got all the parts now just need to get the time to connect it all together and maybe a couple more cords. in the mean time i am going to plug my phone up to the solar charger after it has had its full day of charge and leave it on pandora just to see how far it will go. big issue for me for a month now is i cant for the life of me get the remix os successfully installed on the mini sd and its driving me nuts lmao. im willing to offer some egc to anyone that can successfully put it on a card and mail it to me. regardless of price this newbie is having fun and learning a lot most parts came from profits of the egc rip earlier in the month so no loss if things dont go right and if it does go right all the more reason to kick back and smoke a victory blunt. i do have a full plate and it is taking a while i need to pick up the pace a little because the main piece to my second tinker project is here im going to try to fit this bad boy with solar strips to try to give it longer flight time main personal reason is so i can fit one later that has follow me mode so i can record a whole or a good part of the mountain bike races i do from time to time. dream? maybe we will see. what happened to my first quad? well it had an accident before i could get strips for it lol.

this could work hook it up to a solar source


also Rawx.io has enabled 2FA for withdrawals

You guys should try to get EGC added to > https://changelly.com/

Just tweet and send them a DM, they just need the coin to be on trex or polo. so that requisite is already satisfied.

That looks like a Pi2 with a huge markup. Our plans should be cheaper and better in terms of being able to be used for solar.

What about double the fun (with a solar system) for half the price? That's what we are working on.
Plus you can already get like eg. an Android TV stick that has the same specs and an even smaller size for around $40.
I already have a working setup with 2 solar power banks supplying an old Android TV stick, I had laying around.
It works, but I think that the solution we are working on even works better and without the need for a staking Android wallet (which is also in the planning).

Hi everybody,

I want to talk you about the https://www.cryptomining.farm/ project like an idea that we would implement for EGC project someday. The idea is to create a solar power plant, sostenible and environment friendly, in which investors can take shares and get BTC from the solar mining. Investor can buy shares with EGC so the coin will gain a major value in the market and it's contributing for a good green cause too. Power remain from solar mining can be stored in tesla batteries, for example, and supply power for people too. Clean energy in a good green farming project. What do you think about this idea?

Greetings.
