Nice!







Unlike traditional banking where clients have only a few account numbers, with Bitcoin people can create an unlimited number of accounts (addresses). This can be used to easily track payments, and it improves anonymity.

You are quite right. However, the first probable prime still fails. The positive result is: Primality testing 65004063504559525007738276505391185322137155270201199057971076511954045665048965173722209501026611156768988779138868408914387452650147975793533060274322762631 [N1/N+1, BrillhartLehmerSelfridge] Running N1 test using base 3 Running N1 test using base 7 Running N+1 test using discriminant 19, base 1+sqrt(19) Calling N1 BLS with factored part 49.24% and helper 2.29% (150.19% proof) 65004063504559525007738276505391185322137155270201199057971076511954045665048965173722209501026611156768988779138868408914387452650147975793533060274322762631 is prime! (0.0250s+0.0033s)
does this mean it's not actually generating valid primes? As I understand the primecoin paper, it accepts pseudoprimes for making a block.. as a true check of primality would take too long for nodes to verify.

It looks like block 1592 has enough digits to take second place on the CC9, 1st kind.
Block 1592: 1CC09, 125 digits

This is the python script I'm using to poll for record breakers.
EDIT: Use Clark's script below.

Has it been confirmed that these are valid prime chains? If I'm not mistaken (please correct me if I am), primecoin only checks for probable primality.
You're absolutely right. I'm in the process of checking all these primes with GMPECPP ( http://gmpecpp.sourceforge.net/). I'd be really surprised if any were composite (because "probable prime" means 1 in a zillion chance of being composite), but it can't hurt to check. BTW, if anyone knows a faster primality certificate generator, I'd love to hear about it.

I verified both chains using ECPP in MAGMA.

My Python code :) This needs to be updated to include the Twin Prime record lengths. I wan't able to decipher the Twin Prime records website for lengths, but there's not much modification required. The code will run through the entire block chain on the first run then save the results to a text file. Subsequent runs will simply check all blocks since the previous run. Note this code uses ServiceProxy, which is available from the Bitcoin wiki. Edit: The chain code comes out in hexadecimal, so a 10length chain is 1CC0a, for instance. from jsonrpc import ServiceProxy
import time, json
USER = '<user>' PASS = '<pass>' PORT = 9912
fname = 'worldrecords.txt'
# Searching for new world records
def main(): ip = '127.0.0.1' addy = 'http://%s:%s@%s:%i' % (USER,PASS,ip,PORT) p = ServiceProxy(addy) # http://users.cybercity.dk/~dsl522332/math/Cunningham_Chain_records.htm
records = { '1CC06':633, '2CC06':475, '1CC07':356, '2CC07':251, '1CC08':186, '2CC08':224, '1CC09':185, '2CC09':111, '1CC0a':99, '2CC0a':109, '1CC0b':50, '2CC0b':63, '1CC0c':42, '2CC0c':62, '1CC0d':39, '2CC0d':33, '1CC0e':25, '2CC0e':33, '1CC0f':24, '2CC0f':32, }
primecoin = {}
data = {}
try: with open(fname, 'r') as f: data = json.load(f) except: pass
blk = 1
if 'block' in data: blk = data['block']
if 'records' in data: records = data['records']
if 'primecoin' in data: primecoin = data['primecoin']

while blk <= height: hsh = p.getblockhash(blk) block = p.getblock(hsh) chain = block['primechain'].split('.')[0] chainlength = int(chain[3:5],16) origin = block['primeorigin'] digits = len(origin)
if chain in records: if digits > records[chain]: print('New World Record!\n Block %i, Chain %s, %i digits (previously %i digits)\n' % (blk, chain, digits, records[chain])) records[chain] = digits primecoin[chain] = digits else: if chain not in primecoin: primecoin[chain] = digits print('New Chain Type: %s, Block %i, %i digits' % (chain, blk, digits)) elif digits > primecoin[chain]: primecoin[chain] = digits print('New Primecoin record: %s, %i digits, Block %i' % (chain, digits, blk))

We found our first length10 chain at block 17937, type 1CC0a, 86 digits. Then we bested it at Block 21362, 96 digits. World record is 99 digits, but both of these chains are good enough to knock out the existing 2nd and 3rd place chains on the books: CC10, 1st kind:  1324846487162*223#1, 99 digits, 05/09, Augustin(NewPGen/PFGW) 3462418*151#+5286829397849, 66 digits, 05/04, Alm/Andersen(Primo) 9440733252109*127#1, 62 digits, 11/08, Augustin(NewPGen/PFGW)

If I am not mistaken, Block 12344 contains a notable bitwin chain. The origin is 107 digits long and it is a chain of 3 links (i.e. 8 primes). It is not a world record, but would be 4th on the list of chains of 3 links. I was the miner of this block and would be willing to demonstrate ownership of the coins.
Edit: It would appear that block 17302 also contains a (somewhat less) notable bitwin chain. It is only 97 digits long, but also contains 3 links. As with the other, I am the miner and would be willing to show ownership.

You can verify you own an address with the signmessage command: primecoind signmessage addresshere "Koooooj owns this address" and posting the address, message, and signature. (I think you could run that in the debug console too, just omit the primecoind part at the start. Or is there just a UI to this feature? I'm not using the QT client.)

this is all very cool, but i fail to see the need for prime numbers this large, other than so you can brag about the record to your fellow nerds of course.

(These aren't particularly large for prime numbers. They're big for prime number chains.) Some mathematicians may find this data useful. That's already infinitely more valuable than the results of bitcoin's sha256 / litecoin's scrypt random proofofwork statements outside of the context of the currency.

XPM(prime) has scientific value(which in my mind is debatable, but then again i'm no mathematician) and sha and scrypt has security(proven until its broken) seems like an apples and oranges argument to me.

I think I got the right blocks and signed correctly; my local QT client returns true upon verification requests.
