The diff is up to 230k.  For a script coin, this is difficult.  It's right up with litecoin now.

It's so far away in terms of difficulty from litecoin at this time.
Isn't Litecoin only at 337k?  Doesn't seem that far away given the rate FC reached 230k.

Is this drastic difficulty increase in response to a drastic increase in miners?  Or is the difficulty scaling more nuanced?

FC is not at 230k and LTC not at 337k
LTC is at 364.36 (not k)
FC is at 3.5


Derp.  I completely misread dustcoin; my apologies.

Re: FC difficulty...  am I misreading cgminer then? 
  • The Feather wallet says difficulty 3.5
  • The connection line in cgminer says "Connected to mine.altpool.com diff 16" which I assumed is the difficulty of work assigned.
  • The next line in cgminer says Diff:230k, which I assumed was the network difficulty, but now it sounds like that the specific difficulty of this block?


Someone explained it in an earlier post how cgminer is based on bitcoin difficulty or something. Anyways, just pultiply the wallet difficulyt by 65k and you'll roughly get the cgminer diff.

Actually the 230k is the number of difficult 1 shares you need in average to find a block.
The scrypt difficulty works like this: A block with difficulty 1 needs 65536 diff. 1 shares.
Since the diff is 3.5 at the moment you get 3.5 * 65536 = 230k.

And on a side note: One diff 1 share needs 65536 hashes.

I can only do 2 transactions.

blastbob and relm9 have had LTC sent their way. Just waiting on my FC.



EDIT: blastbob and relm9 completed their end of the deal. Nice doing business with you both.

To keep FeatherCoin hashrates segregated, and to dust off my VPS, I have brought up a pool.

http://feathercoin.is-a-geek.com

It is a 0% Fee PPLNS pool.

Pushpool backend with mmcFE front end. A Few parts of the front end are not working (hashrates, global stats, etc.) But the nuts and bolts appear to be going fine.

Feel free to jump on if you want.

I'd like to solo-mine FeatherCoins, but my hashrate is very low. So I thought, if it's possible, I'd try to solo-pool mine it - I mean to create my own pool of clients to add their hashrates. Is there a simple way to do it? If so, how? Can I use pooler's CPU miner?

Seriously guys, how can I create my own mini-pool? Not sure if worth to bother after the difficulty jump, though...

I'm not entirely sure what you are asking, but you can run the FC client on one machine, and then point all of your CPU/GPUs to that local computer, connecting with cgminer or something to 192.168.*.* (whatever your IP is), and mine that way. Is that what you mean? You'd be solo-"pool" mining yourself?

Exactly. What I tried, that I started feathercoin-qt like this:

./feathercoin-qt -listen -rpcuser=faszom -rpcpassword=faszom -rpcallowip=127.0.0.1

I'm really not sure if I really need all these parameters, I just kept trying and added more parameters as I was trying without success.

Then I started CPUminer like this:

minerd --userpass faszom:faszom --url http://127.0.0.1:9336

Then I get this output from minerd:

Code:
[2013-04-18 20:59:22] 2 miner threads started, using 'scrypt' algorithm.
[2013-04-18 20:59:22] Binding thread 1 to cpu 1
[2013-04-18 20:59:22] Binding thread 0 to cpu 0
[2013-04-18 20:59:52] HTTP request failed: Operation timed out after 30001 milliseconds with 0 bytes received
[2013-04-18 20:59:52] json_rpc_call failed, retry after 30 seconds
[2013-04-18 21:00:52] HTTP request failed: Operation timed out after 30001 milliseconds with 0 bytes received
[2013-04-18 21:00:52] json_rpc_call failed, retry after 30 seconds

Simultenously, this appears in the debug.log of feathercoin-qt:

Code:
accepted connection 127.0.0.1:56132


PROCESSMESSAGE MESSAGESTART NOT FOUND

First I was trying to connect different machines, but when it didn't work, I thought to experiment on localhost first to shoot out possible network or IP blacklisting problems.

It must be something obvious... It looks like if they weren't talking the same protocol - but then how do I point a miner to my client?

Wouldn't like to spam the thread, but could anyone help me with this?

SNIP

do you have server=1 and rpcport=9334 in your feathercoin.conf file?

If not, I think you would have to add them either there or to the command line.

the pools are PPLNS, and it takes about that long to begin getting blocks to mature.

wait another 1-2 hours and you should see your balance increase at the proper rate.

Who here has a load of FC and wants to sponsor some bounties?

For example:

- Setting up a FeatherCoin.org site
- Setting up the first exchange
- Making a Logo and some other graphics
- Setting up a faucet
- Setting up some FC related websites (simple versions of Satoshi Dice etc)
- Anything else worthwhile

This coin has massive interest, and very good fundamentals as an alt coin being based on LTC for fast confirms and transactions, and is ASIC proof.

Litecoin's little brother Smiley

We should make it happen!

What do you guys think?  Grin

I jumped on to, been mining about 2 hours and nothing shows paid yet, is that part working?

Also, I accidently hit the log out button and now when I login it just brings me back the guest screen.
