YAC has a maximum difficulty adjustment of 1% per block.  So it takes a little while for the difficulty to even out.

In previous N-factor increases, it usually took 1-3 days for the difficulty to stabilize.

That is good.   Smiley

There is a sharp drop of the number of miners (like 50%), probably because the sharp drop of profitability due to temporary high diff. I do hope they come back after the transition period.

Well I am trying to GPU mine this for the first time with a rig that has 2 HD 7790 cards and 2 R9 270 cards. Anyone got any good configurations for either?

Thirtybird would be your guy for GPU mining.  He wrote the mining scripts and then re-optimized them several times over.  There might be some setting floating out in the yacointalk forum too.

Historically after an N-increase, the number of miners goes down until the difficulty stabilizes.  They usually come back and often times even more join them (because of the larger block reward).  The block reward is already up to 51 YACs per block.

I'll try my luck at it now...got an r9 290 and 3 r7 240 2gb cards.

how much ram on the 7790s?

here's a beta version of electrum client for yac. most checks are skipped for now and not all block hashes are checked for performance reasons (sometimes it seems like a bad thing that scrypt-chacha is so slow). first you need to compile and install the yac_scrypt python lib (if you use p2pool or something you probably already have it installed).

PS: i really tried to make a windows executable with py2exe, but there's no fucking way i'm gonna get that stupid m$ visual shit to work (needed to compile yac_scrypt)...

PPS: no idea how to get the lib working on android so far, so don't ask me

https://github.com/saironiq/electrum/tree/yac (yes, it's in a special branch; master is vanilla bitcoin electrum)

GPU mining YAC has always been an art, while CPU mining has always been pretty much "set & forget"  Shocked  One of the many great unintended features of Yacoin for sure is they way it caters to many different personalities.

<- heck yeah xD

This guy had to code his own miner to get into the higher n factors lol
Talk about dedication...

Btw, I can't get more than 450h/s out of 2gb r7 240s, am I doomed? R9 290 doesn't seem to get past 1kh/s, and even then I get hw.

Is the getnetworkhashps RPC command right ?

Code:
user@server:~$ yacoin/src/yacoind getnetworkhashps
385667

And also, how do I mint if using only the daemon ?

That seems low.  My R7 250 2GB's get 820 H/sec or so - 384 shaders vs 320 shaders won't warrant that large of a spread...

Buffer size 1753 (largest I can allocate on my rigs, YMMV)
LG=5, R=1078
or
LG=6, R=1280

one of those two should be your top hashrate... I would guess ~700 H/sec

http://explore.grokonet.com/ Is there any API for this block explorer?
Official explorer has been dead for ages
well, technically it's dead only since today. the motivation behind this decision is:
* it was running too damn slow to be of any use anyway
* the benefits of running that server didn't justify the cost (over $20/mo for something that's constantly moving through the thin line called "working/broken")
* some of the stat-generating cron jobs actually didn't even have a chance to complete as they were getting killed due to an out-of-memory condition
...
as a replacement, i'm running a (much cheaper but working and fast) new explorer at http://yacoin.unsha.net
...
Hello Sairon & anyone else suffering the "ISP blues",

Could you use this Linux ISP?
http://inxtracking01.inx1and1.de/tracking?i1005q00bdrfqbpn55000d0000000000000000cx6wb0i6&kwk=6854016

Yes $0.99 for the first year! 
Unlimited data transfer etc. etc. Or maybe the $5.99/month package?

Just use that link if you sign up, it gets me a "smidge" off my websites(shameless plug) Cheesy

MSVS can be like a fickle mistress.  You treat her wrong and she will give you hell.  You treat her right and she will make you very happy Smiley
What are you trying to do with MSVS?  What is yac_scrypt?  You did see my videos on building all the libraries for Bitcoin, YACoin, etc.  and my video on my YACoin changes using MSVS?

yeah, but i need a vps, not webhosting Smiley
actually, their vps prices are a bit higher than what i pay currently at chunkhost

i was referring to yacoin_scrypt python module (which itself is written in c). finally managed to compile it with mingw (the time i could've saved by trying it this way first... gah), so it's ok now.

It beats an r9 290 at most newer algorithms...yac was a bonus.

Both are better than the crappy asic companies out there.

fresh yacoin electrum distribution archives (tgz and zip) up in my dropbox, grab them while they're hot (and don't forget to post some feedback!)

note for windows users: you need to know how to run python scripts if you wanna try this Tongue
(also, looking for someone who can build an .exe for dem windows users)

new snapshot with most electrum plugins fixed/modified to work with yac is up Cool

list of available plugins:
* yacoin exchange rates (so far just from cryptsy api and only to btc)
* label sync
* point of sale
* qr scans
* virtual keyboard

disabled plugins:
* aliases (bitcoin electrum ships with this disabled anyway)
* coinbase buyback (for obvious reason)

teaser screenshot from windoze (running raw python scripts, still haven't figured out the py2exe setup script)

Those are really useful features no one focuses on...they just assume bitcoind works 100%.
Thanks and props!
Hello Ivan,

Is your message (# 2171) referring to the previous message # 2170, which is mine?  If so, thank you.  If not, then it should be Grin
