Question for someone who has the knowledge on POS / POW.

What happens when the hashing becomes so low on POW that POS is the only thing securing the coins? Is this a likely event? How secure would the system be then? Can the coin survive solely on POS in a secure manner?

Yes a coin can survive just on PoS. It can be secure, depending on how much coin weight the network has. I still have no plans to remove PoW. Will reevaluate as time goes on.

Appreciate the response kiklo and tranz. Was not suggesting we remove it, was just curious. I noticed low CAPS hashrate and was hoping it wouldn't matter too much.

Does anyone have the approximate best height of HBN? I was under the impression that it is currently 2m+ blocks correct? Still have a server dedicated to HBN only bootstrapping nonstop trying to catch up. right now it is around 1.4m blocks in. I am assuming it is taking long because HBN uses scrypt which is a bit harder to hash than some of the other algos.

FYI, it's taken about 2 days for me to fully sync from scratch when I moved to a new computer.  HBN has been quite the resource hog.

2 day for a 3+ year old coin, is really not bad, especially looking at one that is 30 second block time. You must have a fairly fast computer.  I still don't have an answer for the amount of ram that the daemon uses. But I am beginning some research into it.  CPU is pretty low, just keep your block sizes large and use the auto combine you should be in good shape.

I've moved to a quad core i7 and ssd for my coin server.  The dual core xenon server cpu wasn't doing it anymore... relegated it to media serving through plex.

I manually combine to ~7-8k block size which has helped a lot... but I made sure to build it with 32GB of RAM...

32!  Shocked

My main is 16 and even with 3-4 coins + web stuff I still have 50% free.

how to use the auto combine feature?


in console type command combinethreshold 1000 ( it will set the maximum it will be probably less than 1000 , seems like it can be up to 0.3% of total amount of coins in wallet)

you may set up in same manner splitthreshold command

actually cpu for hbn is the highest i have

it us 45% of my cpu  old athlon x2 4200+
i m running 8 POS wallets on it, possible to add 1 more   with 8 giga ram
cpu usage 95% average  ram 5.35 giga used


second wallet runing on a p4 3ghz  4gig ram    5 POS wallets  running
80% cpu usage , ram 2.8giga used
same probleme hbn using mostly 1 core on it s own and more than 1 giga of ram

so could be great if it use half less resources

for downloading the blockchaine it s very to slow
even if i add 2 local wallets as node  it s downloading at very low speed  a few kb/s

better manually copy the blockchaine for a computer to an other
