Have the P2pools started networking with each other?

No!


All P2Pools have to be using the same codebase or the P2Pool will be fragmented.  Which is what has happened
since inception.  

The codebase in the first post can be used.  Maybe a stronger push in that direction would help.

This DigitalCoin cryptocurrency has MASSIVE potential  ( mainly due to an outstanding developer 'Baritus' ) but we have to all work together.  Then WE WILL ALL prosper ;o)

^this

The P2Pools should decide on using the same code. I have come up with my own since orphans were so large with the one on the first post. Don't know if it would work any better since no other P2Pool are connected to mine.

So far I have has 0 orphans in the last 11 hours. Stats: http://dgc.xpool.net:8810

Here is the code I'm using if anyone is interested in connecting:

p2pool\networks.py
Code:
   digitalcoin=math.Object(
        PARENT=networks.nets['digitalcoin'],
        SHARE_PERIOD=30, # seconds target spacing
        CHAIN_LENGTH=24*60*60//10, # shares
        REAL_CHAIN_LENGTH=24*60*60//10, # shares
        TARGET_LOOKBEHIND=200, # shares coinbase maturity
        SPREAD=90, # blocks
        IDENTIFIER='7696CFD6441FB537'.decode('hex'),
        PREFIX='4C2530B5ED0E1EB5'.decode('hex'),
        P2P_PORT=23396,
        MIN_TARGET=0,
        MAX_TARGET=2**256//2**20 - 1,
        PERSIST=False,
        WORKER_PORT=8810,
        BOOTSTRAP_ADDRS='dgc.xpool.net'.split(' '),
        ANNOUNCE_CHANNEL='#p2pool-alt',
        VERSION_CHECK=lambda v: True,
    ),

p2pool\bitcoin\networks.py
Code:
   digitalcoin=math.Object(
        P2P_PREFIX='fbc0b6db'.decode('hex'),
        P2P_PORT=7999,
        ADDRESS_VERSION=30,
        RPC_PORT=7998,
        RPC_CHECK=defer.inlineCallbacks(lambda bitcoind: defer.returnValue(
            'digitalcoinaddress' in (yield bitcoind.rpc_help()) and
            not (yield bitcoind.rpc_getinfo())['testnet']
        )),
        SUBSIDY_FUNC=lambda height: 1*10000000 >> (height + 1)//1080000,
        POW_FUNC=lambda data: pack.IntType(256).unpack(__import__('ltc_scrypt').getPoWHash(data)),
        BLOCK_PERIOD=30, # s targetspacing
        SYMBOL='DGC',
        CONF_FILE_FUNC=lambda: os.path.join(os.path.join(os.environ['APPDATA'], 'digitalcoin') if platform.system() == 'Windows' else os.path.expanduser('~/Library/Application Support/digitalcoin/') if platform.system() == 'Darwin' else os.path.expanduser('~/.digitalcoin'), 'digitalcoin.conf'),
        BLOCK_EXPLORER_URL_PREFIX='http://dgc.p2pool.nl/block/',
        ADDRESS_EXPLORER_URL_PREFIX='http://dgc.p2pool.nl/address/',
        SANE_TARGET_RANGE=(2**256//100000000 - 1, 2**256//1000 - 1),
        DUMB_SCRYPT_DIFF=2**16,
    ),

p2pool\bitcoin\helper.py
Code:
     if 'lite' in net.NAME or 'feather' in net.NAME or 'chn' in net.NAME or 'franko' in net.NAME or 'digital' in net.NAME:

Remember to DELETE (or rename) the digitalcoin folder in the data directory with code changes!
Path(or something similar): p2pool-11.4\data\digitalcoin

Shoot me a message if you try to connect.


Great!  Thank you for taking the initiative to start things rolling along the lines of a truly decentralized mining pool.
P2Pool is required because as DigitalCoin's profile increases, those amongst the cryptocurrency community that choose to deny pool services to others
via DDOS might attack centralized pools.  Without the decentralisation Digitalcoin will hit inertia quite quickly.

I can see that the published P2Pool code in post #1 has alternate values for the following :-

p2pool/network.py
Code:
SPREAD=72, # blocks
IDENTIFIER='a5aed03050126d6d'.decode('hex'),
PREFIX='b6c0601991aa19a3'.decode('hex'),
P2P_PORT=25396,
WORKER_PORT=25397,


Would you be able to let us know why you chose those values?  At least that way we can all come to a consensus P2Pool.

thanks fenican and nearmiss for answering my question!~

I honestly thought that there was a penalty for turning the miner off intermittently, and that dedicated miners got a boost for some reason.

If it all evens out in the end, then the kind of sharing system shouldn't matter. I guess i wasn't taking into account the gradual rise in my payments on a PPLNS system juxtaposed against the slow decline of steady payments after i'd already stopped mining.

If it's all just luck then i understand not being terribly lucky, but i'll stick with fenican's pool, as i've had the best results there, it's just great to know that i can bust some headshots turning the miner off for a few hours, without stressing that it was the cause of messing up my rewards.

cheers! and i'll toss you each a couple DGC if you leave an address Smiley

Any idea how many coins mined so far and how many coins will we have after 1 year?


1.5 million in circulation
approximately 86,400 are being produced each day
approximately 31.5 million will be produced in the first year

I also made a program to simulate DGC creation.

p2pool\networks.py
Code:
       SPREAD=90, # blocks
        IDENTIFIER='7696CFD6441FB537'.decode('hex'),
        PREFIX='4C2530B5ED0E1EB5'.decode('hex'),
        P2P_PORT=23396,
        WORKER_PORT=8810

        P2P_PORT=25396,
        WORKER_PORT=25397,

Would you be able to let us know why you chose those values?  At least that way we can all come to a consensus P2Pool.

I chose SPREAD=90 since from research on the forum I found that this is suppose to be based on the block target time of the altcoin.

bitcoin SPREAD=3 block every 600 seconds           Baseline
litecoin SPREAD=12 block every 150 seconds         600/150=4       4x3=12
bbqcoin SPREAD=30 block every 60 seconds          600/60=10       10x3=30
digitalcoin SPREAD=90 block every 20 seconds       600/20=30       30x3=90

Please correct me if this is wrong!

IDENTIFIER, PREFIX and P2P_PORT are random but have to match from pool to pool to successfully connect. Again, got this from researching on the forum so please let me know if you find something to the contrary. Also, not sure if my values are valid since I just used random 19 digit numbers and converted them to hex.

WORKER_PORT is the port miners will connect to. This can be unique for each pool.

not to derail what seems like important conversation again with a noob question, but where is the block chain living on my computer after installing the DGC wallet? the folder i extracted seems to be unchanged, but i thought it was was DLing the chain to my PC... tried looking in documents and program data but maybe i missed it?

ahhh appdata! how did i forget that! thanks cartman!

so mine's 114MB right now, which is pretty small, i thought it'd be a lot bigger. I've read that one of the concerns of short timed blocks is that the blockchain will be huge in a few years... really don't know anything about it, just what i've seen others say. (really not sure if this is even an issue to begin with)

all i'm wondering is, would it be possible to change the directory to something that's not in appdata? I run an SSD as my primary C drive, and programs throwing things unbeknownst to me in programfiles, or appdata which i cannot move is a frequent nuisance when dealing with a 120gig SSD.

The chain could become 100 gigs for all i care in 10 years time, aslong as i can put that on my shiny new 50 tera HDD in 2023 ^_^ and not my C drive.

This is something being worked on in the bitcoin software, but I'm not sure how far they have gotten with it. With Linux, you can put your home folder, or most any other folder for that mater, on a different drive or partition. I would assume that you could do the same in Windows, but I wouldn't be able to say how.

What I think we now desperately need is escrow service with a reliable owner, like maybe DGC dev team themselves.
Any plans on that?

DudeIamI made one that works well.

the link?
What is the link

Sorry for not posting the link. Its here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=210389.0 Supports DGC too.

I too have an 120GB SSD.  I put all my altcoins data on my 2TB drive.  Exit out of the client, copy the digitalcoin directory in "appdata" and paste it to where ever drive you want.  In my case it's the D drive under directory call "appdata".  Now, create a shortcut to the digitalclient-qt.exe and then right click the shortcut, select properties and put in the
"-datadir=d:\appdata\digitalcoin" flag without the quote.  See screenshot.  You can delete the "digitalcoin" directory in your C appdata when you see everything is running fine in the new location.

Good job, techbytes. That's good info. I don't know Windows so well. I'm building a new computer with an SSD this weekend. I'll probably have a Windows install on it. I'll use your tip.

WOW! techbytes with the slam dunk! great info, it's really almost a shame that it will be buried in this thread for someone searching for the same question in a year's time.

I'd upvote this to be sticked in a thread in the actual DGC forums... there's quite a few really juicy nuggets of info that i've found in this thread pertaining to mining in general that i've been unable to find elsewhere... would love to have some of the choice nuggets all in one easily referenced place. would make DGC look good for all the noobs like me who are just getting into mining after hearing about the BTC boom...

one more quick one, concerning all of the talk about networking the P2Pools... would that help cut down on the amount of "requested work restart"s that i'm getting? cause that seems like it would be good? sounds like having them all talk to each other would up everyone's efficiency? would that result in less orphans or rejects, and result in better overall hashing power? would that change how much rewards people are receiving? or if everyone's efficiency gets upgraded at the same time, would it just mean that the network will be more robust but the rewards would still pretty much remain the same?

wonder how off base i am with all of this ^_^

I found when I changed the setting on the pool to SPREAD=90 it significantly cut down on Stratum request for work restart. Try dgc.xpool.net:8810 to see if that is the case for you there.

Connecting the pools will have them using their hash rates collectively for finding blocks. You will get your portion regardless of the p2pool your on when a block is found. More blocks will be found but your portion of the share will be smaller because of the increased number of miners on various p2pools working together. An example can be seen at ltc.xpool.net:9327

Even though there is only one miner at that "node" with 250 Kh/s he will still get a portion of a found block. The entire pool (collective?) is over 620 Mh/s so he is participating with that hashing power even though the local node is only providing 250 Kh/s of it. If it was not connected the miner would rarely if ever be paid with only 250 Kh/s. Since ltc.xpool.net:9327 is participating with the other p2pools he will get paid regularly.

Don't know if that makes sense...it is my understanding of it anyhow Smiley

To expand on the example of the one miner at the ltc.xpool.net:9327 node you can lookup his payment address in the charts. Then go to the payout section and search for his address. You will see his expected share of the next payout along with everyone else's in the entire 620 Mh/s pool...kinda neat if you think about it.

When you select a p2pool you will want one that is obviously participating with other p2pool to increase the frequency of payments. Selecting a p2pool comes down to finding the one that is "closest" to your miner. By closest I mean has the lowest latency. Also look for a p2pool that has a low number of orphaned shares. I hear that dead shares don't matter much. You want to be on a p2pool that is reliable (don't go with the hours in node up time section as that resets if the node has to be momentarily restarted..check the graphs for big lapses in data).

I dont want to come off as an authority on any of this stuff though..it is just my understanding from researching the board.
