Hi everyone. Just to let you know not dead, still here. Over the next few months I plan to do some with on HBN. If (and this is a big if) I am able to I will try also push some of this over to CAP. But if others want to take my commits and bring them over that would be a good thing.

I'll post here as they happen see if anyone else want to help, or if it is just talk.  My guess is 2018 - 2019 for the final set of commits, with some early ones in 2017.
Can't be waiting so long , I'm out .

Can this coin still be PoW mined? I tried for about 2 hours, but no blocks were found. Based on difficulty, I should have found about 20 over that period.

I've had some trouble locating the last PoW block but it looks like it's been days, weeks, maybe even months since one was found. Everything is PoS.

PoW is going strong. CAPs regularly floats to the top of Coinwarz mining profitability list - in fact is was #1 in the past 30 minutes:
https://twitter.com/bottlecapsio/status/880562703877627904

The last PoS block of Bottlecaps was mined minutes ago:
http://www.presstab.pw/phpexplorer/CAP/block.php?height=2926533

If you look at that address you'll see blocks are being mined into it nearly every other day. Maybe some detail on your settings will help us help you get the mining going.

That block was mined after I posted my message. Wink Prior to that it had been nearly 2 days since a PoW block was mined.

Code:
28-Jun-2017 12:05:24 height: 2921333  mint: 10  difficulty: 2.20194583  flags: proof-of-work  tx: 1   *** NEG TIME (1s)
30-Jun-2017 08:33:02 height: 2926428  mint: 10  difficulty: 2.421199  flags: proof-of-work  tx: 1

I can see more recent blocks now, but it does seem to be sporadic, with some big gaps, compared to PoS. For example, between 21st Sep 2016 and 20th Oct 2016 not a single PoW block was mined - or at least, made it into the blockchain.

You're absolutely right. As best I can tell the gaps correspond with times of low market value for CAP. In line with your observations, the spikes in mining I've noticed are tied to Coinwarz switching by profitability.

The combination of PoW/PoS carried CAP during times spent in the bowels of price discovery.

Not sure I can add much to the tutorial, but I'll give it a go:

In C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\BottleCaps\bottlecaps.conf put the following:

Code:
rpcuser=USERNAME
rpcpassword=PASSWORD
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcallowip=192.168.*.*
rpcport=7686
daemon=1
server=1
listen=1
addnode=69.181.165.105:7685
addnode=176.37.67.61:7685
addnode=188.165.203.89:7685
If wallet is already running, restart the wallet.
If locked, unlock.

Code:
ccminer-x64.exe -a scrypt -o 127.0.0.1:7686 -u USERNAME -p PASSWORD

My wallet is not syncing, it's freezing at around 900k blocks left. I have the nodes from cryptopia as well... Anyone have a solution?

I restart the wallet if the sync freezes at a block for more than 5-10 minutes

Can you mine bottlecaps with GPU's?

I noticed it's a scrypt algo so that's why I'm asking

Does anyone have a complete updated guide on the setup?

I mine about 12,000 sol's on zcash but i saw bottlecaps
was more profitable according to the calculators, so i'm
interested if it can be done with gpu's

Anyone who knows how to set this up please PM me

i'm willing to compensate you for your time

Yes, but compared with scrypt ASICs it's very inefficient... lots of power for very little hashrate. I doubt it would be profitable. Scrypt ASICs overtook GPUs about 3 years ago.
