while the idea of the solar staker looks good to me, I think that a single solar array powering multiple devices (including PCs) is much more convenient and efficient.

one PC consumes at least 400 W, so you need something like 2x 250w  mono-crystalline solar panel,  add the solar charger, the converter, and you easily pay at lest $500 Smiley

 

And what happens when it's night ? Smiley

The device then runs on the battery it had been charging during the day. Our prototypes consist of three solar panels that not only run the device during day light hours but also charge a battery for night.

There is no need for a full PC for a dedicated staking machine. There are other projects already doing this with a Pi running linux and a web gui for the user. You could add a small battery to a setup like this and the cost for all hardware would still remain very low.
http://www.voltaicsystems.com/blog/powering-a-raspberry-pi-from-solar-power/ The example here uses a 9 watt solar panel.

This seems like more of a fun hobby to do something like this over a product non -geeks may want to use. When the device only uses 5 volts of power in first place most people will not complain about that or look for alternative power solutions.

You are correct, this is not a solar powered PC and will be similar in functionality to the stated device.

We are doing everything we can think of to make this attractive to nontechnical people including those less familiar with crypto. This includes loading the device with an intial EGC deposit (for example, 100 EGC) so nontechnical people can start earning 7% by simply adding sunshine.

So the community is aware, I will be bringing the seed node off line this morning while I compile the version 1.1 daemon on the seed node and do some wallet.dat shuffling. Yes, the source for EGC version 1.1 will be pushed to the github soon. Wallets will be compiled and made available as soon as possible.

This version consists of the following changes:
  • New logo.
  • New splash screen.
  • New in-wallet news feed. Usually this will be our twitter feed unless urgent messages need to be displayed. We do plan to also have this display market data in the near future. These improvements to the news feed will happen in real time within your new EGC version 1.1 wallet and not require additional wallet upgrades.
  • New checkpoints.
  • New seed nodes. Addition of 3 seed nodes graciously provided by granite.

This is not a required update, as version 1 wallets will continue to function perfectly. We do encourage the upgrade to version 1.1 as you will benefit from the additional seed nodes and the news feed will keep you more informed.  

Thank you in advance for your patience while we roll out EverGreenCoin version 1.1 and I will announce when the code is made available on the github soon.


EDIT: I forgot to mention the checkpoints originally. I apologize for my oversight of this.

I am pleased to announce that the seed node is running version 1.1 of the EverGreenCoin daemon wallet and the source was pushed to the repo. We will be compiling the version 1.1 qt wallets for Windows, Mac OS X, and yes, Android (with staking) as soon as possible and announce the availability upon completion and release.

Again, this upgrade is optional but, it will benefit you with the additional seed nodes and informational news feed. As well as the beautiful new logo.

Please do not upgrade just yet. Some improvements have just been brought to my attention that I would like to incorporate. There is nothing 'wrong' with the code. So if you have already compiled, no worries.  But if you have yet to do so, please allow me an hour or so to make some quick additional changes. This was just now brought to my attention and again, it is not an error in the code, only an improvement. I do apologize for this delay and the now, premature announcement.

Typically you would want to do a grid tied system and overbuild it to deliver more power than you would need during the day. The excess power would be sold back to the grid during the day and you would use grid power in the evening.

A battery bank is an option but this also depends on your location and the amount of sun you get in your area and cloudy/rainy days

small consumer wind turbines are becoming less expensive and can be a good choice for a hybrid solar power system in windy locations.

The better choice would be to replace energy wasting appliances and lights(60 watt bulb to 5 watt led) and use a system built with the latest energy efficient technology http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130881

You're absolutely right! I recently changed out all of my old bulbs for LED edison bulbs. This build is mainly going to be for the non-technical members and the members that are just getting interested in environmental-friendly living. Thanks for the post!

EGC doesn't make me happy nowadays... I know the price is still strong at around 700 and will increase but waiting is boring.  Undecided

why not create a wallet staking in raspberry pi zero or other similar and and exchange them for EGC?

haha. All ventures take time, money, and effort to come to fruition. We only launched two and a half weeks ago. Stick it out and you might get to see some great things come from the EGC team. Besides, our main goal is to help innovate the blockchain into a more environmental-friendly technology. #ToTheTreetop

Could you explain that idea a bit further? That sounds exactly like what we are trying to accomplish.

From what I was reading it,yes,this is the idea that attempt, using a staking device for low power consumption and reasonable price, the zero pi value $5

The problem with the zero is computing power. The processor on that board is very weak. The Pi2B is a much better board and capable of handling what we are trying to accomplish.

Here is a screenshot of the new wallet running on a Pi2B. We're currently testing with Ubuntu.

Here you can see the new in-wallet news feed. Presently, it displays our twitter feed. Again, compiled version 1.1 wallets will be released asap.



FYI, the incoming transaction notification is from the host machine, not the pictured wallet.
