Using BTC-e as a wallet for both BTC and NMC

I've got more reading to do but any tips on anything BTC?

I would suggest, with all due respect to BTC-e, that you do use it as a wallet, but only for exchange purposes. Hybrid wallets like those you can get from Blockchain.info seem just as convenient, but much safer IMO.

Attacks on hybrids wallets are still possible (i.e. if their site gets compromised), but they are mitigated by the fact that as long as you do not send your password WHILE the (JavaScript code on the) site is compromised, the attackers should not be able to use your coins even if they had complete "root" access to everything.

For the NMC, the convenience/security balance is up to you. I went for a local namecoin wallet, it's quite easy to install.

Yea it left an error log

Im running 13.4

Would it really be worth installing an older driver and getting the java miner working or is it really just personal preference?

As far as I know, there are none. But it absolutely not a problem to run both local wallets in parallel.

So I changed flags to -v -w256 -f0  bumped my avg Mhash to 490(1150core/1200mem), Hardware comparison has a 7870xt at 520 with 1200mhzcore and liquid cooling, I bet I can easily hit that if I optimized my mining, but this is good enough for tonight.

Not too happy with current gpu temps.

DevCoin was added to the mcxNOW exchange, so trading DVC isn't confined to just Virucrex anymore. I think one problem might be that BitMinter is too big to not immediately takeover DVC or IXC if merged mining was enabled. BitMinter already has over 50% of the NMC network hashrate, and if enabled, it would be about 90% of the DVC network and an even larger majority of the IXC network.

It was funny how other pools proclaimed NMC as a dead coin and dropped the support. If they had kept merged mining NMC, it wouldn't be in this situation now. Seems like a self-fulfilling proclamation to me Smiley

My 7870xt arrived early Smiley Signed up for bitminter, I tried using the Java client, it kept crashing when starting mining with gpu, but worked when mining with cpu.

I'm familiar with Guiminer, so I went back to that for now, using the basic flags -v -w 128

Gpu core Oced to 1100mhz mem stock 1500 I'm getting 450Mhash/s which is within range of normal for this card.

If you are mining bitcoin you don't need beefy memory speeds, thats more a litecoin thing.   For bit I run engine at 1200 and mem at 1050. (Sapphire 7950's, Linux, cgminer 3.1.1 & 3.0.0)  If you are in windows you can downclock the memory speed even more using third party apps.    Downclocking memory might give you some extra wiggle room to bump the engine speeds up a bit more, or just help lower card temps/fan speeds.

Took the time to learn cgminer, glad I did, Currently Running at 520Mhash/s

Im more suited to GUI applications over CLI, But ill use this for now.

CORRECT  if your card lets you go to 900 memory do it. I run my miner only 7970's with 700 memory and lower the ram volts to 1.5.

 I also underclock the hd7970's to .92 volts for the core and set  the core to 885  yeah it hashes less maybe only 500 or 520 and not 650 but the summer is coming and it is getting hot.  the lower setting really drops power use down.

  All my hd7790's are locked for volts I set them at 1050 core and 800 memory they hash at a max of 300 and pull 80 watts.

I'm confused by the prepay donation/perk.

If you read the perk, it states that "Immediate pay for bitcoin blocks. No waiting for 120 confirmations. No lost coins if the block is later orphaned. Note: does not apply to stale blocks."

Yet, if you read the Blocks (income) page, at the top it states "If the block is orphaned upon creation it will be listed as stale."


So ... one page says if a block is orphaned, it is listed as stale. The other page states that prepay does not apply to stale blocks yet no lost coins if block is orphaned?!? I'm going around in circles here ...

I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.

There is a simple answer, though I'm not 100% sure about this: orphaned upon creation != orphaned later on. The latter are listed as 'orphaned' in the block list, and they are quite rare compared to the former (orphaned upon creation == stale).

I believe a block is marked stale if it gets rejected by BitMinter's bitcoind. That could happen if the server that's handing out work tries to submit a block without being made aware of a new block just received by the bitcoind. That delay should be very small, but it's still something. Latency between the work server and actual miners is obviously bigger. If a miner submits a block that's known to be stale by the work server, the server should just discard the block without trying to submit it to bitcoind. Do those kind of blocks get marked stale, too?

An orphan block gets distributed to the network at least partly, until it's later abandoned because some other block minted at roughly the same moment got distributed faster or just got plain lucky. A stale block is totally unseen by all nodes.

About 48hrs straight mining, 515Mhash/s only sitting .021 BTC, This about right? Seems real low.

Sounds about right, I believe difficulty went up quite a bit recently

hm thanks, at this rate it'll be 100 days before I earn one BTC, Pretty disappointing.

The only ones making money are pool owners and ASIC miners, Whats to keep BTC afloat if 95% of current miners no longer find it viable
