Largest error: 1.89787520814

L'oracle (PM submission from 07:42:50 PM, someone can verify this in my account if wanted):
Largest error: 1.89720766492

My own one (shame on me)
Largest error: 5.31689202348

VeryNewMember:
Largest error: 5.9709180146

Here, all algorithms in zipped form. Change the first line in tester.py to evaluate a specific submission:
http://www.xup.in/dl,17161517/retarget_algorithms.tar.gz/

Does that seem correct so far?
Unbelieveable, how close the two best submissions were.

If everyone agrees with the result, I would need loracle's BTC address to get rid of my hard earned BTC.  Wink

Sorry my objective is a good algo not just number in your POC.  Wink

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

I hope we can start a discussion about the correct way to do it ;-)

For the contest, I had to make up some rules and I didn't come up with something better than this. But I think we got a lot input and a lot to discuss, evaluate and think about.
I am sure, that Lannister will drop some BTC on this matter in the future (at least I hope so). I just felt I need to make a quick start to get people working on this ... there is nothing more of an incentive than a few tasty BTC ;-)

For now, we ended up with many interesting approaches ... now let's see what we can actually use!

I'll enjoy a cuban cigar now ... if no vetos come (i mean, maybe I did miss something or did something wrong) I would send the funds in about 20 minutes.

A photo finish!

Gz loracle.

Gz also to EK, as we both really just brought his original algorithm down to limits for the problem.

Now we need a contest to make a more reasonable testbench for another contest?  This just turned into a micro-optimization challenge...
