Does anybody know if it is possible to perform merge mining with primecoin? There doesnt seem to be a great amount of information regarding the nuances of this currency and it would be very interesting to know Smiley

Thanks

This would be impossible to merge mining with primecoin(XPM) as XPM is totally different algorithm for mining!
As you might have seen, coins that support scrypt would likely the ones to merge.

If there another kind of coins down in history that about being created that supports same algorithm as (XPM) miner then it might be possible to merge at that point but I guess we need to wait! Sorry!

No problem, thank you for the response Smiley

I'm very excited about primecoin, long term it seems to me to have a bright future even though the price is low at the moment.
Looking forward to seeing some online applications like a blockchain.info equivalent emerging hopefully.

Mining for prime number chains rather than simply wasting energy is a stroke of pure genius, it seems to me that the full potential of what this algorithm represents has yet to be fully understood maybe even by Sunny King himself.

Will continue watching with great interest Smiley

I am also excited, with GPU mining, I am earning 1 (xpm) every 2nd day on average! Too bad not many merchants deal with XPM yet and still it's one of most traded!

what miner is being used with gpus for primecoin?

you can try the following miners:
Open Source XPM Pool + GPU Miner (aka. madPrimeMiner) (with updates by eXtremal)
Claymore XPM (PrimeCoin) GPU Miner

In addition what xcaptor explained, it best using claymore latest version seen below:

Claymore XPM GPU miner v13
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=693680.0

primarcoin miner:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=548230.0

Few notes:
The first mentioned above is the best and all GPU miners here supports solo and pool.
So far as I gather only ypool.net is supported but test those with other XPM pool though

Quick question, given enough time would all (or most) advanced civilisations discover primecoin? Lets say that europe and china never encountered each other for some reason but both had developed computer technology, wouldn't they eventually each come up with primecoin independently?

Then lets pretend they finally met, what would that mean for their blockchains, could they be merged somehow?
Are there other implications that result from scenarios such as this and what would be the meaning of them (if any)?

On another note, if one of the blockchains was older than the other and more primes had been found, wouldn't it be possible to simply submit (copy and paste) the results from the older one into the younger one and mine coins from it without doing any work?

Thanks Smiley

afai remember the prime numbers found are so huge that the chains are quite uniquely random, which would make each blockchain unique enough, which would mean though that the scientific value of those knowing those prime numbers can be questioned

Is xpm still a popular mining coin, or is it considered a dud at this point?

Heavily oversold, it's way too cheap at the moment, it will rock again.

Try to use pxpMiner

It show best mining speed on CPU

Hey Primecoin community!

We are adding new coins soon to our marketplace the coming days. We have held talks with the groups and have found that Primecoin will be one of our nominee in the voting list. Do You want to buy some goods with your XPM? Get a voting ticket now!

1 Troy Ounce of .999 Fine Silver Primecoin Proof.
This is Batch 2 as Batch 1 (also 50 pieces) sold out.
50 made, only 18 left for purchase.
$65 each.

Chronos Crypto Video Review

This is the 1st and only physical representation of Primecoin, a world record breaking crypto-currency algorithm whose proof-of-work is based on searching for prime numbers.

you cannot merge block chains, it is mathematically impossible.
each link in the chain.. (ie block of transactions) is stamped with a hash of the previous block.. and the solution for the next block is also based upon the hash of the previous block and the network difficulty so its is completely different every single time.... even if you went back in time and started bitcoin all over again the series of solutions to each block would be completely different (because the number of people mining at any point time and the number of transactions + their values would also be completely different)... this makes it virtual impossible for anyone to "insert" blocks into the middle of a chain.

since XPM is based upon bitcoin it likely works in exactly the same way.


if the block solutions were calculated as a linear predictable set of prime numbers such as 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47 etc then what you are suggesting would actually be possible.

but the way that XPM solutions should actually work is similar this:

Find me a prime number which is bigger than X digits long where the last digit = N

X being the difficulty and N being a digit derived from the hash of the previous block.

Amazing how times change. XPM was a top 5 coin only 12 months ago.

I remember traders on btc-e trollbox claim to have invested life savings into xpm just over a year ago...

Dudes....dudes.... LTC was 50$. What more is there to say ?

This coin needs OPTIONS. Additions. If it will do more, it will worth ALOT more considering its history, and when the BTC rise arrives, we are looking at the old price or even higher. But we need something like.... instant transactions DASH style
