We are looking for some miners to throw some hash power towards Scrypt based Feathercoin to get it to the hard fork.

If you do not know Feathercoin was mined heavily and at one point the network was 5,000KH (5,000MH in Bitcoin), which for a new alternative cryptocurrency is a lot of hash power. This has left us in the position where the Litecoin difficulty adjust used is not suitable, we cannot take a certain amount of hash power for granted like Bitcoin and Litecoin. To stop us from being left at a high difficulty like this again we are moving to a difficulty adjust that is four times quicker but only adjusts by a maximun of 41.4% either way. This starts working on block 33,000 and we currently have 175 blocks to go

At the next difficulty transactions will start moving quicker and we will get some extra confidence. With a 41.4% difficulty adjust this will put us under the most profitable coin so we will be able to mine coins without everyone else returning in mass.

What I am hoping is that there are some of you who might want to mine a few Feathercoins for fun or future profit or perhaps to send a bit of hash power our way to help us out. We have an active community supporting this coin and are doing everything we can to make it work for everyone.

Good news is that Coinotron has added support today for Feathercoin. Hopefully this will make it easier for some of you to send some hash power our way if you choose to.

Can you offer FTC if we point some hashing power your way? Maybe around 50 FTC/day bonus for every Khash?

I'd rather accept more BTC/LTC than I am currently mining for the inconvenience.

1,000Kh will mine 21 coins a day at 50% profitability against Bitcoin. 50 coins per 1,000Kh would put it over 150% profitability and is more than I can afford.

Even one day for free would be much appreciated. My rusty 6870 is doing all it can.

I have put my two new 7850s into action on Coinotron along with my 7970. My 9 year old son now has dual 7950s in his computer. I now have ordered a new case and power supply so I can throw a 5870 and 6850 into my computer and get them thrashing too Smiley
