I can't download the blockchain, ("no blocksource available"). I tried addnode 137.116.230.21, but still nothing.
Bitcoinl, Litecoin, PPcoin and Novacoin work fine on the same machine.

We will be having the round 2 interview of Sunny King on Oct 24th at 9:30 PM UTC. This will NOT be in IRC. It will be in the PrimecoinTalk.org chat box. There was some confusion last time because there was a Sunny King impersonator in IRC answering questions. You need to be a member of the forum to view the chat box, so please register first.

You could limit the numbers of cores used to mine, but not the percent of CPU.

If you have a Quadcore, you can use 2 cores which is 50%.

setgenerate true 2

If you are doing it from your .conf file, use "gen=1" and "genproclimit=2".

If you are doing it from the debug window of the client, use "setgenerate true 2".

Also, some people made it known to me that they wanted to volunteer to be on the Peercoin/Primecoin team, but they didn't finish filling out the survey to sign up because they didn't have any specific area of expertise. There was no job listed that they felt comfortable volunteering for.

Because of this, we've set up a "General" category. If you don't have any specific area of expertise, but still want to volunteer and help out wherever you feel you can, try filling out the survey again and this time select the "General" category. Things are starting to move fast and we could sure use your help. The link to the survey is below.

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/J9RNLPH

We even have a position for something called the swarm. We'll post action items that need you to email an exchange or respond to forum threads or news articles to defend Peercoin/Primecoin. All you need for this is an understanding of how the coin works so that you can promote or defend it.

For the sake of search button! Could you post plain-text version here?

Of course I gave you bad advice. Good one is way out of your price range.

Sunny King Community Interview 2 - Oct 24 2013 transcript link Cheesy

An interview regarding peercoin and lots more

Code:

Sunny King
[24|Oct 10:28 pm]
:
hi all
JustaBitofTime
[24|Oct 10:29 pm]
:
Hey Sunny, nice to have you with us. Are you ready to get
started?
Sunny King
[24|Oct 10:29 pm]
:
yes John i m ready
JustaBitofTime
[24|Oct 10:30 pm]
:
Coolbeans94 wanted to know about Peercoin's long term
approach, he asks "27. Is its design more for long
-
term
security and sustainability? How does that relate to Bitcoin’s
longterm vision?(Coolbeans94)"
Sunny King
[24|Oct 10:31 pm]
:
@Coolbeans 94. Both PPC and XPM are designed to last.
PPC is designed with energy efficiency, XPM is designed
with energy multiuse. Bitcoin has a long term uncertainty as
to whether transaction fees can sustain good enough level of
secu
rity. Before that the main concern is how to balance
transaction volume and transaction fee levels. Currently I get
the feeling that bitcoin developers favor very low transaction
fees and very high transaction volume, to be competitive
against centralized
systems (paypal, visa, mastercard etc) in
terms of transaction volume, to the point of sacrificing
decentralization. This also brings major uncertainties to
bitcoin's future.
Sunny King
[24|Oct 10:32 pm]
:
@Coolbeans 94. From my point of view, I think the
cryptocurrency movement needs at least one 'backbone'
currency, or more, that maintains high degree of
decentralization, maintains high level of security, but not
nec
essarily providing high volume of transactions. Thinking
of savings accounts and gold coins, you don't transact them at
high velocity but they form the backbone of the monetary
systems.
Sunny King
[24|Oct 10:33 pm]
:
@Coolbeans 94. Pure proof
-
of
-
work systems such as bitcoin
is not 100% suitable for this task. This is because transaction
fee is not a reliable incentive to sustain network security. If
the mining generati
on amount is kept constant (there have
been several such attempts in altcoins) it would work better
security
-
wise but then it would also significantly weaken the
scarcity property of the currency. XPM's inflation model is
designed in such a way that it cou
ld serve as backbone
currency better than bitcoin if needed, because it could
maintain high security reliably for longer, with reasonably
good scarcity property as well. Of course that's only from
architect's point of view, whether or not it would be chose
n
by the market is a whole different matter.
JustaBitofTime
[24|Oct 10:33 pm]
:
Along those lines the community wanted to know ""If the tax
fees are to
remain fixed at 0.01 and Peercoin becomes widely
adopted, (Thus a sharp rise in value) the fees could become
too much for microtransactions. What would happen in this
case? What solutions do you imagine to get around the
microtransaction issue?"
Sunny King
[24|Oct 10:35 pm]
:
@Coolbeans 94. PPC is designed to serve even better as a
backbone currency. The
proof
-
of
-
stake technology in PPC is
not only energy
efficient;
it also maintains high level of
security without relying on transaction fee. Thus PPC could
be safely designed with strong scarcity property yet serving
well as backbone currency.
Sunny King
[24|Oct 10:36 pm]
:
@Coolbeans 94. Both PPC and XPM use protocol enforced
transaction fees, which reflects my preference that high
transaction volume is discouraged in
favor of serving as
backbone currencies.
JustaBitofTime
[24|Oct 10:37 pm]
:
Speaking of security, there's often quite a bit of debate
surrounding the PPC vs XPM ch
eckpointing. 27.5 Will
checkpoints be optional like they are in XPM in the next
client version?
Sunny King
[24|Oct 10:38 pm]
:
@transaction fees: Right now if we are
talking about
micropayments in the US$1 range, both PPC and XPM still
handle them with much lower overhead than credit card
network. In the long term micropayments should be provided
by centralized providers, or a less decentralized network
optimized for h
igh capacity transaction processing.
Sunny King
[24|Oct 10:38 pm]
:
@transaction fees: On the other hand there is no promise that
minimum transaction
fee wouldn't be adjusted. If processing
capacity of personal computers continues to advance at the
current pace, both max block size and minimum transaction
fee could very well be adjusted at some point. However I do
take a very cautious approach to adjust
ing transaction fees, as
opposed to bitcoin devs. The impact to the fitness of the
currency as a backbone currency is of great concerns to me.

Hey guys, I have a few questions. I would be happy, if someone could answer me these.

So I find Primecoin very intereseting. As far as I understand, the work of proof works as follows(I read the paper): I have to find a prime chain with a certain length (9.93 at the moment) and the prime origin has to be divied by the hash of the last block. So my question is: For me as miner wouldn't it be the easiest way to find chains of the length of 9.95 all the time and save them persisetent and then just buy a lot of RAM to put the list in there and then just test to find the right divident to the last hash? Wouldn't that be much faster than try to find new prime chains all the time?

So then I tried it on block 200 000:
http://primecoin.21stcenturymoneytalk.org/index.php

The prime origin (decimal) is:
8714709782728338749181494073917835353396414535327396757824121441708798494550544 8916205980486400
The hash of block 199 999:
12600527268990194816109317079654455295674413904799950143178505281837028536927

But in the division, there is a remainder:
http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=87147097827283387491814940739178353533964145353273967578241214417087984945505448916205980486400+divided+by+12600527268990194816109317079654455295674413904799950143178505281837028536927

Thanks for help Wink
