"Send & Receive Web-Based Micro-transactions (Payments)"




Project Bitmark


MARKS - Incentivizing Content Creators & Building a Reputation Value Framework


    EXAMPLE:

    • Send and receive payment from a URI (uniform resource identifiers) verified as being ‘owned’ or ‘produced’ by someone
    • Bitmark uses ‘Linked Data’ technologies to significantly improve the number of transactions the system is capable of in any given time-period. This in-turn aids with scalability, usability and Applications possible for this technology, which is currently not be as easily addressed using traditional cryptocurrency technologies.
    • Marking provides a means to remunerate content creators, by adapting the intention of a ‘like’ or a ‘+1’, or other social-confirmation, into something that is valuable, transferable, and reputable.



    Incentivizing the Content Creator

    Bitmark enables the use of social-gestures and digital investments to create, establish and build monetary value in means that were simply impossible prior to the advent of Marking. Whether it be applied for providing recognition for a video you produced, shared or ‘liked’, through to new ways to pay street vendors, those authoring free software on the web, those seeking a low-friction way to license and distribute protectable intellectual property, organizations looking for a new way to establish a voting mechanism for administrative purposes or non-profit organizations seeking new, incremental ways to build or maintain their non-profit activities through social-engagement.

    The New Social Reputation Standard - Marking via "MARKS"
    Bitmark provides new funding mechanisms for funding products and services valued by communities.
    These systems can easily be applied to web-resources such as Wikipedia, via simple integration that supports simply ‘marking’ an article you’ve read or ‘marking’ Wikipedia itself as a resource you value. In-turn, these activities can be applied to modern Digital Reputation systems, which act in-turn to change network economics substantively.



    https://github.com/solid/solid
    Solid


    Solid (derived from "social linked data") is a proposed set of conventions and tools for building decentralized Web applications based on Linked Data principles. Solid is modular and extensible. It relies as much as possible on existing W3C standards and protocols....This is the framework Marking is built on.



    Marking and Digital Reputation


    Marking delivers a reputable benefit through the use of a public, digital ledger that presents transactions between entities with a secured area that enables notation in relation to the transnational event. These systems can then be further developed and applied, with an array of complementary technologies as to improve support for reputation marketplaces and complex reputational based value matrices surrounding a person's activity and presentation of their achievements, via the world wide web.

    Yeah....I think we can just delete users and open it up to new community members

    let me see if I can filter out users that have not checked-in to SLACK in over 3-6mon

    Bitmark is adopting an additional 7 Proof-of-Work algorithms, for a total of 8:

    ( SCrypt, SHA256d, Argon2d, Lyra2REv2, X17, EquiHash, CryptoNite v7, Yescrypt )  
    All algos governed independently by Dark Gravity Wave v3 in order to keep mining difficulty matched to hashrate.

    A block reward modulation protocol, Coin Emission Modulation v0.1 (CEM v0.1), will also be implemented which proportionately reduces the block reward if hashrate is low compared to recent hash rate peaks.

    Also adopting the ticker symbol MARKS (in lieu of BTM),  to emphasize the goal and nature of the Bitmark project.

    We are aiming to make some of the new Proof-of-Work algorithms being adopted merge-mineable with the leading coins that use them.

    Deliverables Update: Future Fork


    In an effort to adapt and evolve with the ever changing crypto sceen, the Bitmark Team has taked the neccassary steps to secure the blockchain by adopting a multiple-proof of work system (augmenting the single Scrypt proof-of-work algorithm with Sha256d, Lyra2REv2, Argon2d, X17, Equihash, Cryptonite and Yescrypt, for a total of 8 PoW algos working concurrently to secure the chain) and replacing the every-720 blocks difficulty adjustment algo with Dark Gravity Wave v3.Several of the PoW algos will be merge-mine enabled, with VertCoin, Verge, ZCash and Monero, among others.  Since Monero is changing their
    PoW algo, we are waiting to adopt these latest changes before setting the proposed fork height.   The current official version is v0.9.5 and the fork which implements these improvements is v0.9.7 which will activate on or around May 3.

    Stay tuned for additional news & updates...Thanks

    As posted in the older BTM thread, deposits seem not to work yet. At least a few people complain (inlcuding me) that their deposits do not show up (mine was ~2days ago and has hundreds of confirmations).

    Make sure you test with a small amount before sending all your BTM into Polo-Limbo..

    It works, but you have to open support ticket on Polo, and then Polo staff will increase you balance manually.
    I don't know why they are doing it manually, but that is procedure for now.

    Polo disabled the deposits again and stopped my deposit at 8/12 confirmations. Devs, what do you have to say about this one. I so want to believe in this project, there is just too much monkey business going on. Trading in a sandbox at both Polo and Trade by trade for a very long time now.

    c'mon devs, the idea is a great one. Please get this crap sorted out.

    I believe the fork will sort these issues out.

    The Bitmark Project is aiming to release the fork code tommorrow, May 1 2018. (Could be a few days more, there are some details to be worked out yet.)

    Bitmark is adopting an additional 7 Proof-of-Work algorithms, for a total of 8 ( SCrypt, SHA256d, Argon2d, Lyra2REv2, X17, EquiHash, CryptoNite v7, Yescrypt )  each independently governed by Dark Gravity Wave v3 in order to keep mining difficulty matched to hashrate.

    A block reward modulation protocol, Coin Emission Modulation v0.1 (CEM v0.1), will also be implemented which proportionately reduces the block reward if hashrate is low compared to recent hash rate peaks.

    Also adopting the ticker symbol MARKS (in lieu of BTM),  to emphasize the goal and nature of the Bitmark project.


    Wallets will have to be updated.  New binaries have not yet been released, but everyone should update to the new Bitmark 0.9.7, (nodes & wallets) once the fork is published.  

    Stay Tuned ! ....

    Any update for Cryptopia list?
    I join To a question.
    What with listing on cryptopia?

    Never

    Look at this line from topic starter post and do not say what you did not know about.

    Exchanges
    (PayPal -> BTM) : Poloniex :(Early 2018) Cryptopia


    lol the man isn't wrong. Bitmark was suppose to be listed on YoBit last month, but thats a joke now

    We don't need YoBit now, when Poloniex has enabled BTM wallet.

    As I said, bitmark was added to the cryptopia. Poloniex will enabled BTM wallet. Good news for project. I hope there will be no confusion with BTM and MARKS.

    This is a good news that this project already listed in those exchange.
    Hopefully the price will be increasing in the future.

     Bitmark v0.9.7 will use the Cryptonight v7  algo as one of the 8 Proof-of-Work algorithms on the Bitmark Blockchain. Monero has made substantial changes to Cryptonight v7 (see "Scheduled Software Updates' section on Monero's github page).    
    These changes are requiring a bit more time to implement merge-mining with Monero. We anticipate it will be ready within the next 5 days.  
    Updates to the Bitmark fork (v0.9.7) are getting posted daily on github (https://github.com/project-bitmark/bitmark), and once the fork is ready for mass adoption, the 0.9.7 branch will be merged with the master branch and ready-to-run binaries posted on the www.bitmark.io website.

    Hi !
    I was wondering what's happening with the blockchain there is no block since 9 hours and of course my wallet can't sync.  Huh

    What's going on is that the mining difficulty was driven up to 21212.01017410 Hashes/Nonce, which would match a network hash rate of
     about 760 GigaHashes/Second, but the network's hashrate is now averaging only about 11 GigaHashes/Second, so there are only  about 10  blocks being found per day; in short, it's because the difficulty is too high for the network's actual hashrate.

    This is a result of a difficulty adjusting algorithm which recalculates difficulty only every 720 blocks. Bitmark will replace this diff algo with the much more responsive and agile Dark Gravity Wave v3 in the upcoming hard fork, Bitmark version 0.9.7

    We are working on some final details of the fork code for Bitmark v0.9.7, which will fix these types of situations. It will be published and binaries posted in the next few days.

    -----
    Hashrate Equation
    for well-matched network hashrate and mining difficulty factor

    HashRate [hashes/second] = Difficulty [hashes/nonce] (Blocks_found/Blocks_expected) * (2^32 [Nonces] / Beta [Seconds] )

    Bitmark's Beta (It's interblock target time) is 2 minutes = 120 Seconds
    To find the network hash rate that matches 21212.01017410, we set Blocks_found = Blocks_expected, so that term equals 1.

    Network hashrate that would be required to match the present difficulty of 21212.01017410 Hashes/Nonce:

    HashRate [hashes/second] = 21212.01017410 hashes/nonce * ( 1 * ((2^32 Nonces) / 120 Seconds) ) = 759 207 416 501.4897186   Hashes/Second =  ~760 GH/s

    Bitmark v0.9.7

    Bitmark is adopting an additional 7 Proof-of-Work algorithms, for a total of 8 ( SCrypt, SHA256d, Argon2d, Lyra2REv2, X17, EquiHash, CryptoNight v7, Yescrypt )  all governed independently by Dark Gravity Wave v3 in order to keep mining difficulty matched to hashrate.

    A block reward modulation protocol, Coin Emission Modulation v0.1 (CEM v0.1), will also be implemented which proportionately reduces the block reward if hashrate is low compared to recent hash rate peaks.

    Also adopting the ticker symbol MARKS (in lieu of BTM),  to emphasize the goal and nature of the Bitmark project.

    We are aiming to make some of the new Proof-of-Work algorithms being adopted merge-mineable with the leading coins that use them.

    Timing of Bitmark v0.9.7 Fork Release

    At present we are working on enabling merge-mining Cryptonight with Monero. This has proven to be a bit more challenging than expected, because Monero is an original coin which was written from scratch, and only borrowed ideas, ( but no code), from coins before it.   Nevertheless, we expect this to be completed by early next week.

    Considerting a few more days for testing, final code review and to generate ready-to-run binaries for the major platforms (Windows, MacOS and leading Linux distros) it will realistically be a week or two before the fork is published.

    The fork's new operative rules will be set to take effect the sooner of either:

                                   a)  75% of the latest 100 blocks signal support for the v4 blocks of Bitmark v0.9.7
                                   b)  A arbitrarily chosen (yet to be determined) fixed fork-height is reached

    Thanks for your interest, and continued support. ¡ Stay tuned  !

    Nice pool, thanks for posting.  

    Good that you support X17 mining, which is one of the PoW algos Bitmark is adopting in the upcoming fork, Bitmark v0.9.7

    As well as SCrypt, we are also adding Argon2, CryptoNight, Equihash, Lyra2REv2, Yescrypt  and good old SHA256d

    When will you rename the coin on poloniex ?

    Bitmark will still be called "Bitmark", but we are changing the ticker symbol to MARKS (from the old BTM).   Cryptopia.co.nz already has us actively trading and listed as MARKS.  Poloniex has been advised that we wish to use the MARKS ticker symbol and they will be changing from BTM to MARKS, but they replied that the change is not trivial and may take a while. Fortunately, at Poloniex there is no confusion as there is no other coin there which uses BTM.

    My opinion would be to accelerate development of marking applications, improve online presence and social media outreach, as well as continue to modernize and improve the core software. 

    Naturally, someone with such a generous donation would have a big voice in how these funds were spent.

    Additionally,

    • we would seek to standardize our processes
    • Establish documentation &  wiki's, find talent to develop marketing content, secure marketing for the year
    • Find talent to develop marketing content
    • Design deliverables / time-lines, and content surrounding the management of the project
    • Broaden our reach, expand on our implementations
    • Secure at minimum 1 new platform to implement Marking
    • Secure marketing for the year


    transparency would be key...and as DBKeys stated stakeholder input would be taken into consideration

    looking at our history highs...I think 50K SAT is well within reason, and will be reached.

    price there after would likely need to be re-established as higher prices become the norm.

    Personally think we are way undervalued, but for obvious reasons...once development is stable and Marking is implemented, previous ATH above .001 are will within reach

    (this is not advice....just my take on the projects )

    (this is not advice....just my take on the projects )

    I believe that in a long term, if the maximum coin supply remains the same as 27.58 million coins after the fork, Bitmark can reach well over 50K satoshis.

    As a mining pool operator I always build the wallet nodes from the source and, looking into the Bitmark source code, I can tell Bitmark development is following good practices, is well documented and is alive. The developers are working every week on new source code commits on the new fork.

    After the new fork resolves the issue with the high difficulty, the exchanges will be able to enable the wallets again and MARKS will be at the same level as much other coins available to trade. After that, when the first marking apps are implemented, Bitmark will become an useful tool and go far over 50K SAT.

    I do not read tea cups or see the future Smiley but I do know people accept to pay well for something well done and useful. Bitmark is well done and will be useful.

    Any news with the fork and new bitmark core 0.9.7?

    We are working on implementation details of the Coin Emission Modulation algo. (We need to be sure that the new block subsidy policies are consistent across machine architectures.)

    Once the fork code is finalized, we will post here and on the forums.  We will have pre-compiled binaries for Windows, MacOS and Linux (Ubuntu 16.04 and 14.04).

    The fork will address the major issue which has been hindering the blockchain with Dark Gravity Wave v3 governing the mining difficulty factor.  

    Once  v0.9.7's new operative rules are activated, (ie, the fork happens) then :

        1) Mining Difficulty will be regulated by Dark Gravity Wave v3

        2) Additional proof-of-work algorithms will be able to contribute blocks to the Bitmark blockchain (SHA256d, Argon2d, Lyra2REv2, Cryptonight, Equihash, X17 and Yescrypt). This means that miners will be able to mine Bitmark not only with Scrypt but with these additonal algos too, several of which are ASIC-resistant, thus democratizing the mining and putting a definitve end to  the selfish-mining situations we have had in the past.

       3) Bitmark v0.9.7 also introduces Coin Emission Modulation,  (CEM v0.1) which modulates up to 1/2 the mining subsidy (block reward) by reducing that half proportionately by the ratio of current hashrate to peak hashrate ( as experienced within the last year).  This is to reduce coin emission when demand is relatively low (as sensed by reduced hashrate) and only emit the epoch's full reward when hashrate is at its peak.
        Regardless of hashrate, 50% of the epoch's full block subsidy (1/2 of 15 MARKS or 7.5 MARKS currently) is always given, to reward loyal miners supporting the Bitmark blockchain through low and high demand periods.

    The fork will happen when at least 75 of the last 100 blocks signal support for the fork.

    We don't want to release any code before it is well tested. We hope this will be very soon, ( a matter of days or weeks at most) and you can see the coding progress with the regular contributions to our github's 0.9.7 branch.   When the code is vetted as ready, we will merge 0.9.7 into the the 'master' branch, compile binaries and announce the availability of Bitmark v0.9.7, and solicit the support of the mining community to adopt v0.9.7 and make the fork effective.

    Any news with the fork and new bitmark core 0.9.7?

    We are working on implementation details of the Coin Emission Modulation algo. (We need to be sure that the new block subsidy policies are consistent across machine architectures.)

    Once the fork code is finalized, we will post here and on the forums.  We will have pre-compiled binaries for Windows, MacOS and Linux (Ubuntu 16.04 and 14.04).

    The fork will address the major issue which has been hindering the blockchain with Dark Gravity Wave v3 governing the mining difficulty factor.  

    Once  v0.9.7's new operative rules are activated, (ie, the fork happens) then :

        1) Mining Difficulty will be regulated by Dark Gravity Wave v3

        2) Additional proof-of-work algorithms will be able to contribute blocks to the Bitmark blockchain (SHA256d, Argon2d, Lyra2REv2, Cryptonight, Equihash, X17 and Yescrypt). This means that miners will be able to mine Bitmark not only with Scrypt but with these additonal algos too, several of which are ASIC-resistant, thus democratizing the mininig and putting a definitve end to  the selfish-mining situations we have had in the past.

       3) Bitmark v0.9.7 also introduces Coin Emission Modulation,  (CEM v0.1) which modulates up to 1/2 the mining subsidy (block reward) by reducing that half proportionately by the ratio of current hashrate to peak hashrate ( as experienced within the last year).  This is to reduce coin emission when demand is relatively low (as sensed by reduced hashrate) and only emit the epoch's full reward when hashrate is at its peak.
        Regardless of hashrate, 50% of the epoch's full block subsidy (1/2 of 15 MARKS or 7.5 MARKS currently) is always given, to reward loyal miners supporting the Bitmark blockchain through low and high demand periods.

    The fork will happen when at least 75 of the last 100 blocks signal support for the fork.

    We don't want to release any code before it is well tested. We hope this will be very soon, ( a matter of days or weeks at most) and you can see the coding progress with the regular contributions to our github's 0.9.7 branch.   When the code is vetted as ready, we will merge 0.9.7 into the the 'master' branch, compile binaries and announce the availability of Bitmark v0.9.7, and solicit the support of the mining community to adopt v0.9.7 and make the fork effective.

    ¡  Thanks for your patience and support  !

    Great work! We're waiting next update.

    Would naming it MARKS be a little confusing? Because currently BTM wallet on about to send some coins states that 1000 MARK is 1 BTM.

    The original documentation of the project calls 0.001 of a bitmark 'marks', true.

    Since we are adopting as our  new ticker symbols MARKS,   it makes sense to refer to whole coins as *marks* or *bitmarks*.  

    We will update the documentation to reflect this, and deprecate the use of 'marks' for any subunits.  

    For 1/1000 subunits, we can use  ' markbits ';  or we could get creative and call them ' markoshis ' or ' bitoshis ',    but,  in any case,   officialy "marks" should be reserved to mean only whole coins.

    will it be necessary to replace my old BTM with a new MARKS?
    or will it not be necessary?

    When will you rename the coin on poloniex ?

    Bitmark will still be called "Bitmark", but we are changing the ticker symbol to MARKS (from the old BTM).   Cryptopia.co.nz already has us actively trading and listed as MARKS.  Poloniex has been advised that we wish to use the MARKS ticker symbol and they will be changing from BTM to MARKS, but they replied that the change is not trivial and may take a while. Fortunately, at Poloniex there is no confusion as there is no other coin there which uses BTM.


    Poloniex is always under maintenance (it will have worked 1 week in the last 12 months). It is very strange that CRYPTOPIA has VERY lower exchange rates than Poloniex, the current value of BITMARK is not truthful. In the real life is said to be an insider trading, in cryptocurrencies there are no laws or rules and this currency is proof of this.

    No, the blockchain is the same. It's just that on exchanges we will be using the ticker symbol MARKS instead of BTM.

    If I understand correctly, Poloniex has said that as soon as the new fork code is ready they will re-enable deposits and withdrawals. Once this happens, I imagine that the price will harmonize between the various exchanges; if not, that would present excellent arbitrage opportunities.

    Bitmark v0.9.7.0  is now available.  


    Source code is available on github:

    https://github.com/project-bitmark/bitmark.git  

    Binaries for Ubuntu 16.04 "Xenial Xerus" CLI nodes are also available on the Release page:

    https://github.com/project-bitmark/bitmark/releases/tag/v0.9.7.0

    Wallets
    Release Candidate 1 (RC1) wallets for Windows are available and soon to follow for MacOS & leading Linux versions.



    Fork is Active !

    Please upgrade your nodes / wallets to v0.9.7 as soon as possible.

    Fork Activation will occur when 75 out of the last 100 blocks signal support
    Support is signaled with v4 blocks, used by Bitmark v0.9.7  




    New Features:


        1) Difficulty Adujstment: custom DGWv3
    Mining Difficulty will be regulated by a custom Dark Gravity Wave v3, aided by a hashrate Surge Protector and Resurrector functions. The Surge Protector comes into play if there is a string of 9 blocks in-a-row by the same algorithm.  The Resurrector activates whenever an algorith has not contributed blocks for over 160 minutes, something that is extremely unlikely to happen if the difficulty is well matched to hashrate.

        2) Multiple Proof-of-Work Algorithms: 8 mPoW
    Additional proof-of-work algorithms will be able to contribute blocks to the Bitmark blockchain. The complete list of algorithms is (SCrypt, SHA256d, Yescrypt, Argon2d, X17, Lyra2REv2, Equihash and Cryptonight). This means that miners will be able to mine Bitmark not only with Scrypt but with these additonal algos too, several of which are ASIC-resistant, thus democratizing the mininig and putting an end to the selfish-mining situations we have faced in the past.

       3) Coin Emission Modulation: CEM v0.1
    Bitmark v0.9.7.0 also introduces Coin Emission Modulation,  (CEM v0.1) which modulates up to 1/2 the mining subsidy (block reward) by reducing that half proportionately by the ratio of current hashrate to peak hashrate ( as experienced within the last year).  The rationale behind this is to reduce coin emission when demand is relatively low (as sensed by reduced hashrate) and only emit the epoch's full reward when hashrate is at its peak.
        Regardless of hashrate, 50% of the epoch's full block subsidy (1/2 of 15 MARKS or 7.5 MARKS currently) is always given, to reward loyal miners supporting the Bitmark blockchain through low and high demand periods.

    It might be necessary to open the wallet with more rights. Have this report from Candy Erdmann on Slack:
    " I have opened the program with full access rights and now its synchronizes"

    Also, make sure to connect to v0.9.7 nodes. Here is a list for your bitmark.conf file:

    Code:

    Good to see this project is still alive and rolling, holding a market on polo will be crucial...too bad they disabled the chatbox though. To me that was one of the best ways for bitmark to be seen and utilized.

    You guys know if they will ever bring it back?

    Bitmark v0.9.7.0  is now available.  


    Source code is available on github:
    https://github.com/project-bitmark/bitmark.git  

    ..

    I am unable to compile the source under any Debian amd64 version (tried 8 and 9).

    On Debian 9 it seems impossible due to too new openssl version with errors like:

    Code:
    ...
    bignum.h: In function 'bool operator>(const CBigNum&, const CBigNum&)':
    bignum.h:594:83: error: cannot convert 'const CBigNum*' to 'const BIGNUM* {aka const bignum_st*}' for argument ' ' to 'int BN_cmp(const BIGNUM*, const BIGNUM*)'
     inline bool operator>(const CBigNum& a, const CBigNum& b)  { return (BN_cmp(&a, &b) > 0); }
    ...

    On Debian 8 I can overcome some c11 related errors with:
    Code:
    ./autogen.sh && ./configure --with-incompatible-bdb --without-miniupnpc && CXXFLAGS="-std=c++11" make

    But then I am stuck with the following compile errors:
    Code:
    In file included from cryptonight/crypto/hash.c:35:0:
    cryptonight/crypto/hash-ops.h:65:15: error: expected declaration specifiers or '...' before 'sizeof'
     static_assert(sizeof(union hash_state) == 200, "Invalid structure size");
                   ^
    cryptonight/crypto/hash-ops.h:65:48: error: expected declaration specifiers or '...' before string constant
     static_assert(sizeof(union hash_state) == 200, "Invalid structure size");
                                                    ^
    Makefile:1047: recipe for target 'cryptonight/crypto/hash.o' failed
    make[3]: *** [cryptonight/crypto/hash.o] Error 1

    Any pointers and hints would be much appreciated. TIA.

    I will uphold the right to arm bears.

    It seems my wallet has a problem "out of sync" 7 day (s) behind. Huh


    It might be necessary to open the wallet with more rights. Have this report from Candy Erdmann on Slack:
    " I have opened the program with full access rights and now its synchronizes"

    Also, make sure to connect to v0.9.7 nodes. Here is a list for your bitmark.conf file:

    Code:
    addnode=108.170.1.134
    addnode=139.162.122.138

    It's always a good idea to make a backup of your wallet.dat file.

    I would make backups regularly.

    But to answer your question, the upgrade from v0.9.5 to v0.9.7 will keep the coins you have.

    It should not affect your wallet.dat file.

    After I bit the bullet and deployed an Ubuntu 16.04 vps, resynched (and constantly restarting the daemon as it hangs regularily) I am now on block # 453174.

    At the same time, Cryptopia shows a blockheight of # 450962 and Tradesatoshi shows # 450909 (but says the wallet is in maintenance).

    BE1 shows # 450890 and BE2 # 453175.

    I guess I'll use the node list from Cryptopia and make sure I am on the same chain as they are so I can at least transfer the coins to them.

    I will uphold the right to arm bears.

    Bitmark v0.9.7.0  is now available.  


    Source code is available on github:
    https://github.com/project-bitmark/bitmark.git  

    ..

    I am unable to compile the source under any Debian amd64 version (tried 8 and 9).

    On Debian 9 it seems impossible due to too new openssl version with errors like:

    Code:
    ...
    bignum.h: In function 'bool operator>(const CBigNum&, const CBigNum&)':
    bignum.h:594:83: error: cannot convert 'const CBigNum*' to 'const BIGNUM* {aka const bignum_st*}' for argument ' ' to 'int BN_cmp(const BIGNUM*, const BIGNUM*)'
     inline bool operator>(const CBigNum& a, const CBigNum& b)  { return (BN_cmp(&a, &b) > 0); }
    ...

    On Debian 8 I can overcome some c11 related errors with:
    Code:
    ./autogen.sh && ./configure --with-incompatible-bdb --without-miniupnpc && CXXFLAGS="-std=c++11" make

    But then I am stuck with the following compile errors:
    Code:
    In file included from cryptonight/crypto/hash.c:35:0:
    cryptonight/crypto/hash-ops.h:65:15: error: expected declaration specifiers or '...' before 'sizeof'
     static_assert(sizeof(union hash_state) == 200, "Invalid structure size");
                   ^
    cryptonight/crypto/hash-ops.h:65:48: error: expected declaration specifiers or '...' before string constant
     static_assert(sizeof(union hash_state) == 200, "Invalid structure size");
                                                    ^
    Makefile:1047: recipe for target 'cryptonight/crypto/hash.o' failed
    make[3]: *** [cryptonight/crypto/hash.o] Error 1

    Any pointers and hints would be much appreciated. TIA.

    Ubuntu 14 - compiled  successfully by upgrading gcc and boost:

    gcc

    Code:
    sudo -i

    add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test
    apt-get update
    apt-get install gcc-5 g++-5

    update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/gcc gcc /usr/bin/gcc-5 60 --slave /usr/bin/g++ g++ /usr/bin/g++-5

    exit

    boost

    Code:
    wget https://sourceforge.net/projects/boost/files/boost/1.58.0/boost_1_58_0.tar.gz
    tar -xzf boost_1_58_0.tar.gz
    cd boost_1_58_0/
    ./bootstrap.sh
    ./b2
    sudo ./bjam install

    By default this will install boost to <libdir> = /usr/local/lib

    compile bitmark with configure option:

    Code:
    ./configure --with-boost-libdir=<libdir>

    make sure you have <libdir> in your $LD_LIBRARY_PATH before starting bitmarkd

    After I bit the bullet and deployed an Ubuntu 16.04 vps, resynched (and constantly restarting the daemon as it hangs regularily) I am now on block # 453174.

    At the same time, Cryptopia shows a blockheight of # 450962 and Tradesatoshi shows # 450909 (but says the wallet is in maintenance).

    BE1 shows # 450890 and BE2 # 453175.

    I guess I'll use the node list from Cryptopia and make sure I am on the same chain as they are so I can at least transfer the coins to them.

    This is the only block explorer, I can find right now, which is working: http://explorer.bitmark.co/


    https://chainz.cryptoid.info/btm/




    That one stopped on first merged mine sha256d block.

    Get some actual working nodes from the pool. Click on connections count.
    but now 7 day ago~and stop syn

    It could be an issue with out-of-sync clocks.

    Please check that your machine has the right time, and that Windows is configured for your time zone.

    To maintain the right time automatically:

     Click on the clock in the Task Bar, to open the "Date and Time" preferences window. Go to the 'Internet Time' tab, then 'Change Settings' button. Make sure that there is a good choice for "Synchronize with Internet Time Server", then click the "Update Now" button.

    Also, there please use the new Windows wallets: ( 0.9.7.1-RC1 version )

    Hi,

    just updated to 0.9.7.1 but wallet won't sync, jammed 20 hours back. I did the date&time trick but didnt work. At this point, should I delete the blockchain and resync from the beginning?

    thanks

    Do not do that, because it will take you time to wait for a synchronized wallet from scratch. I fixed it by opening another wallet to sync and naturally my Bitmark wallet was working again.

    I'm working on a mining pool for cryptonight here: https://drkmrk.xyz. Soon I will add merge mining support with Monero.
    For now I will do the payouts manually everyday until I have it fully automated. No fees for now.

    I recommend this cpuminer: https://github.com/piratelinux/cpuminer-multi. I recently added AES-NI optimizations for it.

    Update: It won't work with Xmrig, but when I implement merge mining, this mining software will work

    You may have nodes subver 0.9.7.0 and 0.9.7.1 Pfennig nodes; that should be OK.

    Did you name the file 'bitmark.conf' and place it in the

    Code:
    C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Bitmark
     folder ?

    Here a list of v0.9.7.1 nodes

    Code:
    addnode=104.198.28.255
    addnode=117.84.205.142
    addnode=139.162.128.92
    addnode=139.162.232.242
    addnode=144.217.73.112
    addnode=157.161.128.56
    addnode=158.69.246.121

    Hi dbkeys,

    i did the steps but it doesn't work. My wallet is not syncronizing.

    the version 0.9.5 before worked well.

    Nam

    EDIT:

    my wallet v0.9.7.1 works now!

    i cut a file (rev00002.dat) out an put it on the desk.

    Code:
    C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Bitmark\blocks

    after that i run bitmark.

    bitmark gives an error and try to reindex the blocks.

    i close bitmark again and put the file (rev00002.dat) back.

    and start bitmark again.

    after reindex the blocks my wallet got synced!

    Im so happy!!

    How to mine coin with Equihash and Crytonight?

    It's possible to solo CPU-mine with the node / wallet directly.

    Choose mining algo with the 'setminingalgo' command

       ID   Proof-of-Work (PoW) Algo
       ---   ----------------------------
       0.       SCrypt
       1.       SHA256d
       2.       Yescrypt
       3.       Argon2d
       4.       X17
       5.       Lyra2REv2
       6.       EquiHash
       7.       CryptoNight

    Start the built-in miner with the number of CPU cores you wish and on the algo you wish, with the 'setgenerate' command
    (Note: it does not makes sense to cpu-mine ASIC-centric algos like SHA256d and Scrypt)

    Code:
    setgenerate true <number of CPU cores>  <pow_algo_id>

    example for EquiHash:

    Code:
    bitmark-cli setminingalgo 6
    bitmark-cli setgenerate true 4 6

    example for CryptoNight:

    Code:
    bitmark-cli setminingalgo 7
    bitmark-cli setgenerate true 4 7

    Run the 'getmininginfo' command to confirm that your machine is mining
    (note that 'genproclimit' is 1 [or more if you have more CPU cores], 'generate' is true  and  'hashespersec' is some positive number) :

    Code:
    :~/.bitmark-dev$ bitmark-cli getmininginfo
    {

    Publish here and update please all algo mining pool list . cryptonight pool BTM

    ¡ Good idea !   Let's collect all the info on Bitmark Mining Pools.

    These are the ones I'm aware of at the moment.  (Please post or PM additional info and I will add it to the list.)


    Bitmark (MARKS) Pooled Mining
                   
                                 SCrypt   SHA256d   Yescrypt   Argon2d   X17    Lyra2REv2  EquiHash   CryptoNight
    http://www.smilingmining.com     √        √         √                  √         √

    http://yapool.net                




    Notes:



    All this makes Equihash and CryptoNight the best algos for CPU solo mining (at the moment: 2018.06.20)

    https://drkmrk.xyz      

    plz help

    The pool says it's in testing mode, and the link for payouts indicates no income since June 16.  

    I tested it via nicehash.com:
    Code:
    Notice: Pool verificator may not be 100% accurate and may report pool being compatible while in fact it is not compatible or vice versa. Always discuss with pool operator if you encounter any issues with the pool verificator.

    Pool host: drkmrk.xyz
    Pool port: 3333
    Pool user: bPXWF6Sa7b6xFhfZLC69W7yrTJKxMTx5mp
    Pool pass: x
    Algorithm: CryptoNightV7

    Resolving pool host drkmrk.xyz... OK
    Establishing connection with proxy... OK
    Establishing connection with pool 94.23.33.83:3333... OK
    Sending login... OK
    Receiving login response... Error: Read timed out
    Your pool is shown as incompatible therefore we encourage you to contact pool operator to make sure that the pool is using minimal/starting pool share difficulty which is compatible with our service (and thus compatible with today's miners), please send them following link: https://www.nicehash.com/help/which-mining-pools-are-supported. Thank you!

    Close

    I think the pool is temporarily off-line.  I sent a message to @onelineproof (pool op) to see if he can help.

    how do we set the default algo instead of scrypt?

    I tried, like the other multi-algo coins, using algo= in the conf but no joy...

    From a quick grep through src I would say miningalgo=, see https://github.com/project-bitmark/bitmark/blob/master/src/miner.cpp#L120

    You can switch it "manually" from the command-line too, if needed. For example:

    Code:
    coins@dubuntu:/blockchains/BTM$ marks setminingalgo 4
    coins@dubuntu:/blockchains/BTM$ marks gmi
    {
        "blocks" : 461596,
        "currentblocksize" : 1000,
        "currentblocktx" : 0,
        "reward_next" : 15.00000000,
        "reward_max" : 13.73529376,
        "hashrate_4max_reward" : 35000000000,
        "difficulty" : 2674.24478854,
        "errors" : "",
        "genproclimit" : 12,
        "networkhashps" : 234706330857046.28125000,
        "pooledtx" : 0,
        "testnet" : false,
        "generate" : true,
        "algo" : 4,
        "algoname" : "X17",
        "hashespersec" : 140982
    }
    coins@dubuntu:/blockchains/BTM$ marks setminingalgo 3; marks gmi
    {
        "blocks" : 461596,
        "currentblocksize" : 1000,
        "currentblocktx" : 0,
        "reward_next" : 15.00000000,
        "reward_max" : 13.73529376,
        "hashrate_4max_reward" : 35000000000,
        "difficulty" : 2674.24478854,
        "errors" : "",
        "genproclimit" : 12,
        "networkhashps" : 234706330857046.28125000,
        "pooledtx" : 0,
        "testnet" : false,
        "generate" : true,
        "algo" : 3,
        "algoname" : "ARGON2",
        "hashespersec" : 205696
    }
    coins@dubuntu:/blockchains/BTM$

    Note: bitmark-cli is aliased to 'marks' here, and I'm using the abbreviation 'gmi' for getmininginfo  ...

    This is an example bitmark.conf file for an Argon2d mining setup:


    Code:
    server=1
    daemon=1
    listen=1
    maxconnections=1024
    disablewallet=1
    miningalgo=3
    blocknotify=/home/coins/bitmark_push.sh

    rpcuser=bitmark.rpc
    rpcpassword=<Mak834CatnhJ2882s33l12lal4>
    rpcport=15629
    port=9265
    rpcthreads=20
    keypool=4096


    addnode=108.163.197.58
    addnode=139.162.128.92
    addnode=139.162.35.170
    addnode=173.255.252.140
    addnode=178.238.224.213
    addnode=35.177.220.199
    addnode=45.33.65.161
    addnode=72.220.130.97
    addnode=78.70.227.72
    addnode=98.115.147.74
    Note the wallet is disabled above (to service miners more speedily) and that the mining algorithm is being set:

    Code:
    miningalgo=3

    Sorry for the little discrepancies and standards differences, and many thanks for pointing them out.
    I'll have the next release in the 0.9.7 series have better parsing and respond to 'algo' as well.

    Sure you're on the lastest code from master branch ?

    Code:
    git checkout master

          Also, some of the suggested improvements are implemented in the dev branch, which will become release 0.9.7.1,  if you want to be on the "cutting edge"  
    Code:
    git checkout dev
         For example, position of pow_algo_id & pow_algo (formerly algonumber & algo) and difficulties are presented more explicitly, in the 'getmininginfo' (or 'gmi') and the 'chaindynamics' (or 'cd') commands.

    (Branch 0.9.7 has been merged into master @ the fork, and I retained it just for historical records, perhaps it will be best to delete it ?)

    Perhaps you are better off dealing with issues of normal listing? How much can you drive people by the nose like donkeys? You create an agiotage near an empty bucket! Does this play into your hands? you are afraid of real work on the stock exchange because you will pour this coin on your head down to 1 sat? you're just a bunch of pathetic clowns.

    If you have abilities in this area, (Exchanges) specific, constructive criticism (what can be done, in your view) would be better, or even actual help (Do it ! )   ... we're mostly an all-volunteer group, most of us interested in the potential of blockchain marking technology, and we each do what we can.  

    We have added two Exchanges recently, (Cryptopia.co.nz and qTrade.io) and we're in contact with them.

    qTrade is a new exchange, and is in beta, but MARKS trading is already fully functional on it.

    Cryptopia is having issues syncing our blockchain, but we have yet AFAIK to get confirmation they are in fact on  v0.9.7.0 or later.

    What did you do? This is ridiculous! cryptopy produces the message "13th June - Investigating deposit issues." and all the others also do not work, qtrade - does not cause any trust at all - what are your problems in this and why they are not solved? Where is the promised yobit - you even got money for this, and what?

    Poloniex has been advised AFAIK that we have forked and that the forked blockchain is functioning correctly. @82ndabnmedic is in contact with them and we hope to have the deposit/withdrawal situation finally resolved soon.

    Cryptopia, as I mentioned, is experiencing blockchain sync issue, and we're working with them to solve it.

    qTrade is being developed by one of the contributors and member of the Bitmark team (@bitbumper on Slack), so I trust qTrade.io. Curious what you think qTrade can do to increase their perceived trustability.

    Yobit: Indeed, we paid Yobit and they have not done anything (so far, anyway).  I'll submit the listing again !

    We paid 0.1 to list Bitmark ( https://www.bitmark.io ) with the ticker symbol MARKS. (We have been using the ticker symbol BTM, but we have decided to change to MARKS)

    If you need any additional information, or an initial deposit of Bitmarks (MARKS) please let me know.

    If you take a look at CoinMarketCap's Market tab for Bitmark (MARKS) you can see that they list TradebyTrade.com as the top volume exchange for Bitmark.

    What did you do? This is ridiculous! cryptopy produces the message "13th June - Investigating deposit issues." and all the others also do not work, qtrade - does not cause any trust at all - what are your problems in this and why they are not solved? Where is the promised yobit - you even got money for this, and what?

    As @dbkeys stated we are a volunteer group, fully decentralized and organically grown.

    I've been in contact with both Cryptopia & Poloniex at least twice a week. Poloniex is currently doing their standard testing prior to re-enabling the wallet. Additionally we are collaborating with Cryptopia and assisting them in getting their wallets synced... they are policy bound and unable to use the bootstrap file to Aid Syncing.

    We successfully forked and provided our community the 1st multi-algo merge mineable currency, this was a massive undertaking and we have been largely sucessfull... let's try to keep the conversation productive, constructive and insightful

        EH: There was a recent sharp rise in EquiHash performance, if you know which pool / source this is coming from, please PM or post.

    It is coming from http://www.smilingmining.com. They said on discord they are testing it now, and it should be available for miners soon.
    It is been a couple of days since, maybe they just decided to mine equihash only for themselves.

Where is the promised yobit - you even got money for this, and what?

    Poloniex has been advised AFAIK that we have forked and that the forked blockchain is functioning correctly. @82ndabnmedic is in contact with them and we hope to have the deposit/withdrawal situation finally resolved soon.

    Cryptopia, as I mentioned, is experiencing blockchain sync issue, and we're working with them to solve it.

    qTrade is being developed by one of the contributors and member of the Bitmark team (@bitbumper on Slack), so I trust qTrade.io. Curious what you think qTrade can do to increase their perceived trustability.

    Yobit: Indeed, we paid Yobit and they have not done anything (so far, anyway).  I'll submit the listing again !

    Thanks !  We are working on v0.9.7.1 which will have improved DNS Seeder support and some additional optimizations to support initial syncing of blockchain. Should be ready in about a week or so.    With that release published, I will contact Yobit to see if they will finally activate our listing.

    We successfully forked and provided our community the 1st multi-algo merge mineable currency, this was a massive undertaking and we have been largely sucessfull... let's try to keep the conversation productive, constructive and insightful

    =================================================================================

         I did not want to continue this conversation now, in any case, to tangible, real progress towards solving the problems that worry all problems with an adequate exchange. I also see how you are aggressively responding to my questions and being an adequate person will try to explain the essence of the issue and my recent post more deeply.

         I, and I think that many others, are grateful to you for the huge, complex, great work that you have done with this coin. I sincerely and honestly thank you for this. Although my gratitude and respect for you, in general terms, does not apply specifically to the BTM, but to the direction you have chosen - crypto-currencies, blockchain programming and multi-algo mining problem. I am sure, I know from my own experience that in this work, faced with difficulties, you have received substantive knowledge of experience and practical experience.

         Now let's return to the acute issues.
    I soberly and pragmatically look and see at everything that happens in the world of crypto-currencies and you, you can certainly fix me, but then I will lay out real events that all adequate people know and see.

         From the very beginning, the entire history of the development of the BTM was a big adventure in which both big uncles and those who just wanted to earn money tried to play, thinking that the rules were for everyone and hoped that the horses in the ferry did not change. Never ever, and for the third time I will say that never on poloniex not  normal, honest work, NEVER !!!  95% of the time the purse for replenishment was unavailable, ordinary mortals, money went to poloniex through the back, by agreement and only for the elite. There they simply bought and sold themselves creating a visibility of the movement, brought up the value of the artificially lowered price, knowing that no one else could make a deposit.
         Thus using all the other small trading platforms for speculative selling at inflated prices - poloniex writes - "buying $ 2" People like crazy, they bought where they saw, at 1-1,5-1,7 $ and only then they saw a non-working purse and lost on this immediately 40-70% - And tell me what has changed? I'll say - so far nothing, absolutely nothing.
        Now you point your finger at TradebyTrade.com - these are scammers! How many people lost their money there? They need to write a separate article on it - they have forgotten so far. You were interested in what to promote close to you personally qTrade? - I will answer - normal work! I waited 2,5 hours for my withdrw. for LTC and received it only after I applied to the Sapport. Well, the list available for currency exchange, except for BTC and LTC, is a caricature! Add at least DOGE, XVG, so that the miners do not lose 20-50% on the purchase for the withdrawal of this garbage or pay 2-3-5 $ for withdrawal to the BTC LTC.

         As for the cryptopia of yobit and poloniex - I am very happy, in my soul indescribable rapture and reverence, from regular reading of your sketches and revelations, to the long-broken and sick topic of your warm and, most important, productive talks, communication and understanding with these exchanges.
         How can!? what a f # c k i n #  reluctance to them and you along with them (sorry for the literary expression) prevents you from starting a purse there - now 2018 year! we live in an age of cosmic speeds and technologies! What the hell is politics? !! It's a circus and a mockery. If there is a main thing - a desire on both sides, then everything else is done in 48 hours
         Well, the last. I thank you again for the work done, but let's face it - you raised from the low floor a coin with a history, with a working time, with a crooked price tag of $ 2 million and I'll tell you very fortunate, I did not pay attention and did not have time to do it myself . Personally, you will earn much more of this on it.

         Understand, we, most of ordinary people, do not need it, like any other, and now even the BTC has not become  
    interesting - We all just want to make money on it. Now, as long as you continue to waste time, every day, every minute we invest our own money in mining, we support you, but all this is just for the sake of the promised profit.

         I and many others are ready to help you in everything, but everything has a reasonable limit. Now there is a real profit mining on cryptonight and equihash, you can earn and all who have such a pool are silent and rowing all to themselves. I'm ready to create a good pool with anyone who wants to - let's the server, write, there will be a pool. And do not be angry, you raised it, took a big target on your back.

    Jeronimo99, interesting viewpoints, and thanks for the recognition. It has been alot of work to get the Bitmark chain flowing smoothly, with the help and advice of many good people.  
     In fact, I don't know of any other coin that has as many PoW algos powering their chain, and all are merge-minable.

      I think Bitmark is the first 8mPoW blockchain.

    And now, it is a very solid platiform to build the Marking infrastructure and systems which have always been its main reason for being, or "raison d'être"    Even better than Bitcoin, in my opinion, because the balance between hashrate and difficulty is kept under control much better (DGWv3 : thanks Evan Duffield & DASH !) than with Bitcoin's primitive diffalgo.  Our mining is much more democratic than it is on coins with a single ASIC PoW algo:   Look at how the mining is distributed, and notice that "All Others" category is on top, and rising (taken from cryptoid.info):


    I have no doubt that there are whales, and such things as market manipulations. But there are now several exchanges where you can trade Bitmark, and we are working to get them all fully enabled.  For example, I urge people to try out qTrade.io. It's a new exchange, and I believe it's fairly run.
     Also, we've implemented the features necessary for Bitmark to participate in de-centralized exchanges, which are a very promising technology.

    I have no doubt that there are whales, and such things as market manipulations. But there are now several exchanges where you can trade Bitmark, and we are working to get them all fully enabled.  For example, I urge people to try out qTrade.io. It's a new exchange, and I believe it's fairly run.
     Also, we've implemented the features necessary for Bitmark to participate in de-centralized exchanges, which are a very promising technology.

    Your posts are a bit... cryptic. It's hard for me to decipher what you are saying sometimes.

    What is a simple wallet ?
          Bitmark is a blockchain and a cryptocurrency. And a powerful concept with tremendous potential, Marking, which has already spawned one commercial company.   We have wallets (GUI nodes) which run on Mac & Windows.
          Are you trying to say that Bitmark is just another cryptocoin ? That's a matter of opinion.
          Will not feed her for free ?  Do you mean that you will not invest or buy Bitmarks until you see a return on your investment ?   That is entirely up to you.   But I can add that decisions like this shold depend on your particular time horizon.
          We are materializing a vision, and for me the first step was to make sure that the underlying blockchain platform was sound and reliable. Done. √    

      Who is going to pray for who ?    A sacred cow praying for herself ?  Can't make heads or tails out of this one.
        



          You do come across loud and clear on the point about Exchanges. I get that.

              qTrade: Let's focus on the positive: we are listed on qTrade.io now !
    I have an account there. Deposits and Withdrawals work great. (There are still not too many coins listed, and the volume is low, but this will change as more people use it.)

          but ... it is frustrating when Poloniex & Cryptopia do not process withdrawals or deposits.
              As far as I understand, Cryptopia was having problems sync'ing the blockchain past a certain height without the help of 'bootstrap.dat' file, which their policy forbids use of. Other exchanges have been able to sync the blockchain. I'm sure they will too.

               Poloniex currently has a notice that reads:
    Quote
       BTM is currently under maintenance or experiencing wallet issues. Deposits and withdrawals will remain disabled as we work to find, test, and audit a solution. Thank you for your patience in the meantime.
     
    They have had a variation of this for quite a while.   I don't know Poloniex's policy or why exactly they are saying this.   Since June 6, when v0.9.7.0 was released, the Bitmark blockchain has operated, and is operating, regularly and reliably.  Blocks of transactions are being added to the chain, as expected, approximately every 2 minutes. There are still a few nodes which report older versions which are incompatible with post-fork v0.9.7.0, but this should be of no consequence.   Do you have an account there ? Have you tried contacting them ?  

               Yobit. We did pay for a listing there, and at the time, (v0.9.7.0 had not been released yet) they chose not to list.  We will have v0.9.7.1 ready soon, with wallets (full node GUI binaries) for Windows 64/32 bit,  MacOS (El Capitan and newer) and Raspbian.  When v0.9.7.1 is released,  it will be time to renew the request to be listed on Yobit.

    This is really, truly cryptic (to me).   Huh  I looked at posts on June 13, nothing specific to Cryptopia, Galaxies or Eternity.    LOL .   Personally I think the folks from Cryptopia are good people.  Matter of opinion I guess.

    If you have any proof of Poloniex doing anything untoward or more precisely, illegal, please present it. Otherwise, it's just speculation.

    and as to giving you money, well, you know Pink Floyd said: "It's no surprise that they're giving none away ....." Roll Eyes




    I'll pass along your suggestion to add DOGE to qTrade. Any particular reason why you like DOGE and/or any more coin suggestions?

    Appreciate your interest in the Bitmark project !

    we recommend that you backup your current wallet.dat file to a safe location (multiple actually)...then downlooad the latest release for your OS. Install the new wallet & make sure to add the bootstrap file in the  /Users/AppData/Roaming/Bitmark directory (this will aid in syncing the new wallet quickly). Once synced, Close the wallet. Now place the saved wallet.dat file (from old version) in the same directory "/Users/AppData/Roaming/Bitmark"....Now restart

    - You should be fully Synced with you imported wallet

    My mining pool (https://drmrk.xyz) just mined the first block merge mined with Monero (block 470141). It still didn't solve a Monero block, but did at the Bitmark difficulty. I will run some tests with Monero test net to make sure we can mine Monero blocks, but in the meantime you can use the pool, and I will keep track of the shares. The pool address is not fixed yet, it changes from block to block, but you can track all the blocks with the "*" symbol next to cryptonight in the explorer explorer.bitmark.co. I want to see if we can merge a Monero block soon so please try it out, no fees for now!

    Top Mining Club is proud to announce first equihash mining pool for Bitmark - topmining.club.

    Pool fee for the first month is 0%, after first month pool fee would be 1%.

    Happy mining.

    PS. We'll soon start adding support for other Bitmark mining algorithms. Next in line is Cryptonight.

    Example command line options for some of the miners:

    EBVF:
    Code:
    miner --server 172.104.215.38 --port 4032 --user <YOUR BITMARK ADDRESS>  --pass x

    Bminer:
    Code:
    ADDRESS=<YOUR BITMARK ADDRESS>

    USERNAME=$ADDRESS.w
    POOL=172.104.215.38:4032
    SCHEME=stratum

    ./bminer -uri $SCHEME://$USERNAME@$POOL -api 127.0.0.1:1880

    For single GPU please use port 3032, for multiple gpu port 4032, and for nicehash 5032.

    This platform has been successful forking and becoming a product
    which uses the first multi-algo on a coin that can mined. Also has
    become a digital asset that can used as a micro payment tool for
    the public, companies and governments. This is a big market opportunity
    that can be developed.
    Overall, this application of blockchain technology in this platform
    proven internally and externally needed.
    With hard work and dedication, hopefully can survive
    in today's competitive market.

    Proposed  Bitmark (MARKS) v0.9.7.3   -   Development Report


         Coin Emission Modulation v0.1 has proved succesful, and we believe it can benefit from more dynamic range authority.  We propose that CEM v0.2 have authority somewhere between 75% and 80% of the epoch full reward, (instead of just 50%).  The look-back period on which peak hashrate is based will be reduced from 1 year to 3 months. We believe this time frame is sufficient and better suited.


         A discussion about the merits of merge-mining arose on the Bitmark GitHub wiki ( merge-mining discussion ), and an interesting white paper was highlighted: Merged Mining: ¿ Curse or Cure ?

         Based on this, we want to make a distinction between blocks mined natively or (n-blocks), and blocks merge-mined via the AuxPoW mechanism as children of another parent chain or (mm-blocks). The motivation is to reduce mining centralization, while securing the benefits of the large hashpower of powerful parent chains. Another goal is to produce the right number of coins for the available market demand and stabilize the coin's price. Merge-mined coins tend to be freebies which are sold off on exchanges quickly, while natively mined coins are usually more prized by the miners.

         Merge-mined blocks (mm-blocks) will receive a lighter reward than natively-mined blocks (n-blocks).   Naturally, both the native and merged variants must each therefore have their own blocktime targets and difficulty. Each variant's hashrate will also be individually tracked and this data used by Coin Emission Modulation individually as well. This will create, effectively, a total of 16 "viritual" algos from the present 8 mPoW algos. Each mPoW algo will have a native and a merge-mined variant. As per the original Bitmark (MARKS) spec, a block will continue to be produced in an average inter-block time of 2 minutes (β=120s) and the original coin emission caps are observed.

         The reasoning for the lower subsidy for mm-blocks is that the low marginal cost to obtain an mm-block should be likewise equitably rewarded. If a mining operation did not want to be subject to the lower mm-block reward, they can always choose to mine Bitmark as the parent chain, and get the full CEM-modulated reward of the native variant by generating n-blocks.

          Work on this proposed hard fork is  happening on @piratelinux's GitHub repo, dev branch:Bitmark v0.9.7.3 development

    This platform has been successful forking and becoming a product
    which uses the first multi-algo on a coin that can mined. Also has
    become a digital asset that can used as a micro payment tool for
    the public, companies and governments. This is a big market opportunity
    that can be developed.
    Overall, this application of blockchain technology in this platform
    proven internally and externally needed.
    With hard work and dedication, hopefully can survive
    in today's competitive market.
    I totally agree with you. This project deserves to be! But, yes, it will hard to stay strong with such a big competitive market.

    "Send & Receive Web-Based Micro-transactions (Payments)"



    https://raw.githubusercontent.com/project-bitmark/art-of-bitmark/master/branding/128/bitmark-purple.png
    Project Bitmark


    MARKS - Incentivizing Content Creators & Building a Reputation Value Framework


      EXAMPLE:

      • Send and receive payment from a URI (uniform resource identifiers) verified as being 'owned' or 'produced' by someone
      • Bitmark uses 'Linked Data' technologies to significantly improve the number of transactions the system is capable of in any given time-period. This in-turn aids with scalability, usability and Applications possible for this technology, which is currently not be as easily addressed using traditional cryptocurrency technologies.
      • Marking provides a means to remunerate content creators, by adapting the intention of a 'like' or a '+1', or other social-confirmation, into something that is valuable, transferable, and reputable.



      Incentivizing the Content Creator

      Bitmark enables the use of social-gestures and digital investments to create, establish and build monetary value in means that were simply impossible prior to the advent of Marking. Whether it be applied for providing recognition for a video you produced, shared or 'liked', through to new ways to pay street vendors, those authoring free software on the web, those seeking a low-friction way to license and distribute protectable intellectual property, organizations looking for a new way to establish a voting mechanism for administrative purposes or non-profit organizations seeking new, incremental ways to build or maintain their non-profit activities through social-engagement.

      The New Social Reputation Standard - Marking via "MARKS"
      Bitmark provides new funding mechanisms for funding products and services valued by communities.
      These systems can easily be applied to web-resources such as Wikipedia, via simple integration that supports simply 'marking' an article you've read or 'marking' Wikipedia itself as a resource you value. In-turn, these activities can be applied to modern Digital Reputation systems, which act in-turn to change network economics substantively.


      https://i.imgur.com/yliyTha.png
      https://github.com/solid/solid
      Solid


      Solid (derived from "social linked data") is a proposed set of conventions and tools for building decentralized Web applications based on Linked Data principles. Solid is modular and extensible. It relies as much as possible on existing W3C standards and protocols....This is the framework Marking is built on.



      Marking and Digital Reputation


      Marking delivers a reputable benefit through the use of a public, digital ledger that presents transactions between entities with a secured area that enables notation in relation to the transnational event. These systems can then be further developed and applied, with an array of complementary technologies as to improve support for reputation marketplaces and complex reputational based value matrices surrounding a person's activity and presentation of their achievements, via the world wide web.

      8mPoW

      Eight distinct Proof-of-Work  algorithms contribute blocks to the Bitmark blockchain:

      SCrypt, SHA256d, Yescrypt, Argon2d, X17, Lyra2REv2, Equihash & Cryptonight

      This means that miners are able to mine Bitmark not only with our original SCrypt but, with these other algos too, several of which are ASIC-resistant, thus democratizing Bitmark mining and making it accessible even for the CPU miner.


      Block Reward: 15 BTM max current epoch reward, modulated by Coin Emission Modulation v0.1

      Coin Emission Modulation: CEM v0.1
         Bitmark v0.9.7.0 introduces Coin Emission Modulation, (CEM v0.1) scales up to 50% of block reward by reducing that half proportionately by the ratio of current hashrate to peak hashrate ( as experienced within the last year).
      The rationale behind this is to reduce coin emission when demand is relatively low (as sensed by reduced hashrate) and only emit the epoch’s full reward when hashrate is at its peak.
      Regardless of hashrate, 50% of the epoch’s full block subsidy (1/2 of 15 MARKS or 7.5 MARKS currently) is always given, to reward loyal miners supporting the Bitmark blockchain through low and high demand periods.
      The Block reward for each algorithm is set once a day ( exactly every 90 blocks of that algorithm's block production) for the next 90 blocks of production.
      Please check explorer.bitmark.co for any algo's current reward and to see when the reward will be recalculated.


      Block Time: 120 Seconds
      Block Maturity: 720 Blocks (~1 day) to discourage multipools
      Block Halving: Reward halves every 3 years, with intermediate decrease every 18 months (20 coins initially, 15 after 1.5 years, 10 after 3 years, etc...)
      Difficulty Retargeting:  Dark Gravity Wave v3  with SurgeSupressor & Resurrector Functions
      All eight PoW algorithms are governed for mining difficulty by custom Dark Gravity Wave v3. “Surge Supressor” triples difficulty if 9 in-a-row occurs from the same algo;
      “Resurrector” slices difficulty by 1/3 if an algo has not contributed in over 160 min.

      Total Coin Supply: ~27.58 million (27,579,894.73108000 exactly)

      Request for Proposals (RFP)

      Fellow Bitmarkers, please check the discussion on merge-mined vs. native mined here:



       I would like to get some opinions on: ¿ Should we favor native blocks over merge-mined blocks ? , and if so, in what ratio.

      We're coding the proposed Bitmark v0.9.7.3 fork to have 2 variants of each of the 8mPoW algos, the native variant (not merge-mineable, no AuxPoW) and a merge-mineable variant (AuxPoW-enabled).
      For now, we are coding to have block time targets for each variant the same: 32 minutes. (This is necessary to maintain the overall block times at 2 minutes)
      The question is: ¿ Should we favor the ratios of native blocks over merge-mined blocks ?


      Here are a few possible ratios of native:merged and the resulting target block times.

                    Ratio                  Target  Time           Target Time        (minutes)
                native:merged                 native              merge-mined
                --------------                -------             -------------
                      1:1                       32                     32
                      2:1                       24                     48
                      3:1                       21.333....             64
                      4:1                       20                     80
                      5:1                       19.2                   96

      What happened to Bitmark? Why it has fallen so significantly when it always cost about 10k satoshi?

      The answer IMO goes back to economics... supply & demand.    Once the Bitmark blockchain started flowing steadily with v0.9.7.0, after many years of producing  very few blocks per day,  many more coins are being produced than the market demand to absorb them at 10k sat. was used to.
       Also, particularly because a majority of blocks are being merge-mined, perhaps they are seen as "freebies" or extras by the merge miners, to be liquidated ASAP on exchanges.

      While the project does not specifically target any price for the coin, one purpose of the Coin Emission Modulation (CEM) algo is to buffer, to some degree from these types of market pressures, by issuing coins according to demand, as sensed by network hashrate. Algorithmically, the implementation has worked well, but the limited action range of 50% epoch block reward has not proven to be strong enough. The current 50% CEM v0.1 action range will be expanded to at least 80%  in CEM v0.2.

      Additionally, an intense debate has been had on the Bitcoin GitHub regarding the pros / cons of rewarding merge-mined blocks the same as native-mined blocks.    ( Merge Mining Debate )    The discussion ensued after it was raised as an Issue by GitHub user Jarr0s.

      Merge-mined blocks are of near-zero marginal cost for merge miners to produce, because their fixed equipment costs do not change at all when they merge-mine MARKS. They are already in operation, mining another chain that shares one of Bitmark's 8 algos.  They just have to set up a Bitmark node on their existing hardware, and dedicate a some extra processor cycles to submit work for Bitmark.

      I am of the opinion that it is appropriate to reward them at a fraction of native-mined blocks, because they are of much lower cost to produce than native blocks. Is it simply a principled question of Equity.

      The project appreciates merge-miners. The blocks they mine, linked to higher hashrate parent chains, provide addtional security to the Bitmark blockchain, and have value for Bitmark and will be rewarded - just not at the same rate as native blocks.
      If merge miners wish to get the higher native rate, they may mine MARKS natively, as the parent chain.

      These measures are likely to result in  a coin emission rate more in line with the historical averages, and may restore the market conditions when the Bitmark price was in trading band an order of magnitude higher than it is now, but Disclaimer: this is just speculation on my part.      Market forces are always outside of the control of any one group or individual.

      Our purpose and vision from the start has been to be a solid, secure and reliable blockchain on which to implement the myriad possibilites of Marking.      Bitmark v0.9.7 is a solid step in that direcition, because it definitely restored prompt transactions processing, with block production fairly steady at the target 2 minutes.  The idea of decoupling coin emission directly from block production proved feasible and succesful with CEM v0.1, and wil be built upon and strengthened in the next iteration.

      Bitmark version 0.9.8 is being coded and will then enter testing. Once it is final, we will publish the exact specifications of CEM v0.2 and the policies regarding native and merged mined blocks.

      I am eager to move past the blockchain dynamics and start focusing on the Marking, which is what will bring the best value to Bitmark.

      What happened to Bitmark? Why it has fallen so significantly when it always cost about 10k satoshi?


      Afert a resonanable period of discourse our previoud developere could not see the real picture which was blatantly obvious (and which I will not go over as @DBKEYS has already laid out just reasoning for our decision).

      I was the main developer for Bitmark since early 2017. I developed the multi-algo, merge mining and difficulty adjustments in the recently launched fork. As you can see on the merge mining discussion thread https://github.com/project-bitmark/bitmark/issues/68 , I (user piratelinux) am opposed to the new change that is planned to be released by the people who control the project-bitmark gitub. It is obviously a scam (reduces the rate of money supply in order to pump the price). Bitmark was never pre-mined, never had an ICO, was a completely honest user-focused protocol. But this change will change will break that reputation. So if anyone is with me please contact me (here as a private message) and we can try to continue with the current protocol as it is, uncorrupted.

      Also just so people understand, CEM (coin emission modulation), was a change that went into the large multi algo fork we recently completed, and the point is to ensure that miners are working at their peak potential by punishing them if they are not at the peak hashrate of the past 365 days. This is good because it enhances hashpower security for users. It has nothing to do with pumping the price or as dbkeys would say "ensuring supply appropriately meets demand".

      I am not doing this for any profit. I just want to see and honest and reputable protocol for decentralized reputation. Also, if you currently are a Bitmark merge miner, you will get a much smaller reward with the change they are trying to push now, so contact me if you want to get involved. Just because merge mining is easier for miners because they are already mining other chains in the same time, they still need to be rewarded the same as any other miner, as the amount of reward is correlated with the likelihood of carrying out a double spend attack (I can explain this more if someone wants). There is no such thing as and "official team" in a P2P protocol and even one of the official owners of project-bitmark is opposed to the change as you can see in the thread I linked (his username is melvincarvalho), but has stopped speaking recently.

      @onlineproof
      I've read the whole discussion - https://github.com/project-bitmark/bitmark/issues/68
      I don't see why you oppose that proposal.
      Developers just want to reduce reward for merged mined blocks because cost of creating those blocks is much lower then block created with direct Bitmark mining. It makes sense to me. This would probably have very positive impact on the price. And for some reason you don't like that.
      It is very hard to understand you ideas in a discussion. Sometimes they are even laughable.
      What is your agenda here? Do you get a cut from merged miners?

      .....

       It's interesting to me, how CEM is attractive to @onlineproof for the  reason he expresses, which is one of the effects of CEM, but I thought of Coin Emission Modulation (CEM) primarily as a way to decouple emission from the number of blocks produced.  From the start, it was absolutely thought of as a way to meet demand adequately, (because hashrate is the only intrinsic demand-linked metric available in the blockchain dynamics themselves) while still finding blocks quickly enough so that transactions (the main concern of users) are processed expediently. We intend to build on it by letting CEM v0.2 act on a larger percentage of the base epoch reward.

      I must say I do stongly object to using the term "scam" in rererence to the proposal to reward merge-mined blocks less than native-mined blocks.

      A scam is an" intent to defraud", usually pulled by con artists who are disguising their intentions. It's wholly inappropriate here, and I find it frankly somewhat offensive....   needlessly so.

        First because nothing proposed is being disguised or hidden. It's entirely transparent and open for discussion.  

      Fact #1: Merge-mined blocks cost much, much less to produce than native blocks. By definition, their cost of production is marginal compared to native-mined blocks. The miner's fixed cost are exactly the same whether they mine just the parent chain, or the parent chain plus some number of AuxPoW (merge-mineable) chains along with it.

      Fact #2: Higher hashrate means a more secure blockchain, more secure against 51% attacks and other such shenanigans.  That is why we opened up Bitmarks 8 mPoW algos for merge-mining in the first place.  


      Unfortunately, enabling AuxPoW on all 8 of the algos has had the unitendended consequence of decimating native mining.  Most other mPoW coins, if they allow merge-mining, allow it on only a few of their PoW algos.  My initial thought of a solution was to create native & merge-mine-enabled variants of each of the PoW algos, resulting in 16 "virtual" algos;  each with its own block target time and DGWv3-governed difficulty. In this scenario, we could set any ratio desired of native to merge-mined algos by setting the block time target that DGWv3 seeks.
      However, separating merge-mined blocks from native blocks would create a scenario where the merge-miners or the native miners of an algo could manipulate the other group's reward by peaking their hashrate during a day so that the denominator (peak_hashrate) in the subsidy scale factor (SSF = current_hashrate / peak_hasrhate) in CEM would shrink, reducing the other group's reward for as long as the CEM look-back period remembers that peak hashrate.    
      So instead, by keeping native and AuxPoW blocks in the same CEM group, this problem is avoided.  And we don't have to choose an arbitrary ratio of native:merged blocks. We simply set the reward for native blocks to to be aproximately 5x greater than merged blocks, and let the economics sort it out.

      This way, we account for the fact that merged blocks are cheaper to produce (fact #1) while we  acknowlege that (although they are of near-zero cost to the miner),  they have greater than zero cost value to our blockchain (fact #2).   Setting this differential is somewhat arbitrary, but it's certainly "in the ballpark" of what's fair.  If it strictly represented the cost of mining differential, it would be much larger (maybe 100X greater reward for native), but we _do_want some merge-mining, it is valuable to our chain, therefore a middle ground, with a less pronounced differential seems appropriate.    

      I think it's also appropriate to put in a word about the emission rate and the total emission in general.  Since inception, Bitmark has a total cap on emission of below 28,000,000 coins  (27,579,894.73108000 to be exact). (This is on the very first page of our GitHub wiki: Bitmark: Block Reward & Currency Supply.   Everything we have done respects this total cap on emission.
      By its nature CEM has the potential (because it can lower a block reward down from the epoch's maximum) to push completion of the total emission further into the future. Likewise, rewarding merge-mined blocks less than native-mined blocks defers completion of the total emission into the future by its own measure.   I believe that a careful reading of the philosophy expressed in the Wiki justifies this. Particularly this passage:

      Quote
      the quicker the reward halves the more unstable the coin and unfair the distribution, and the more likely it will be considered and act like a project/currency with no longevity.

      Slow block halving reduces urgency to mine and allows more natural growth and adoption. There is no unfair benefit to mining on day 1 as opposed to day 400

      By deferring issuing coins when CEM reductions are in effect, and as well when blocks are mined by merge-miners, it ensures that mining will be sustainable for much longer before mining has to be incentivized only by transaction fees,  But more importantly, it means that there are even less of the "early bird" incentives pointed out in the original paper. The emission algorithms, keeps coins in reserve for a future that may have more demand for them. As always, no more than the 27,579,894.73108000 MARKS will ever be issued.

      And last but not least, these measures, although they will not reduce emission as low as it had been for some stretches of time in the past, will move the emission rate closer to what have been Bitmark's real, historical emission averages.

       In summary, their are 5 benefits I see with the approach we are working on now:

      1) We get the security of merge mining,    
      2) The emission is more dynamic,  and emission is more in line with Bitmark's real historical averages,  
      3) We have an incentive for merge-miners to adopt Bitmark as the parent chain,    
      4) We don't have to revoke merge-mining on any algo, and  
      5) No issues with merge-miners or natives sabotaging each other's CEM reward with 1-day high-hashrate attacks just to affect the other guy's SSF

      As always I welcome thoughtful input and suggestions.


      PS .. We're working on a graph that will illustrate our emission rates. Should be interesting.

      First, I want to clear up the issue of "merge miners create coins at almost 0 cost thus should be rewarded less". What matters for security is the amount rewarded to the miner. The miner has 2 basic choices (whether merge miner or not). The miner can keep mining honestly and receive the quite predictable subsidy each block, or he can mine a side chain to reverse transactions and cause a double spend. If the value of the double spend is much higher than the value of mining honestly, the miner (or group of colluding miners) will be more likely to cause a double spend. This also why, as I mentioned in the github thread that the number of confirmations you wait to be sure that your received coins are safe should be proportional to the size of the transaction, because the bigger the size the more tempting is a double spend, but more confirmations means the miner can just mine honestly and attain the same amount honestly. Also, if he does a double spend it reduces the value of his coins, meaning only the value of the double spend is certain, while the value of the coins he generates during the double spend can depreciate a lot during the 720 blocks for maturity. Thus I would say you should wait the amount received divided by the block subsidy to determine the rough number of confirmations for your received coins to be safe. You also have to factor in value to the miner of having a long term supply of well paid subsidies as a deterrent to double spending. This would actually get worse to a sudden change in the maximum reward for merge miners. It sets a precendent that their reward can easily get lower. Makes sense or am I retarded like jarr0s says in the thread?

      Now if you look at the original announcement thread of Bitmark https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=660544.0 you can see that it says:
      Quote
      Project Bitmark is an initiative to create an every day use alternative currency. No premine, no IPO, nothing unfair, no scam, no clone, no old code bases, no untested code, no token features, just what you need.
      Similarly on the webpage bitmark.io it says
      Quote
      Bitmark is a powerful decentralized reputation platform
      One of the main PR guys (82ndabnmedic) says
      Quote
      we are a volunteer group, fully decentralized and organically grown.
      https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3169983.msg40969748#msg40969748

      But in the same time the protocol is decided for the best interests of investors? (you can even see dbkeys say how important investors are in the github thread). And it is important to differentiate investors from users. Users are people who make Bitmark transactions (including the embedding of data and reputation ranking). Investors are people who just buy in and then exit with a profit. For ICOs investors are the main group to satisfy. You have a promise to build something cool and then pay back investors when that's built. But as you saw in the original announcement thread "no IPO" and IPO is the traditional way of saying ICO. There's also other evidence scattered around that supports the idea that Bitmark's goal is not to serve investors but to serve users. Users pay miners and in turn get strong consensus security. Any discussion about price is about investors and that is totally irrelevant to the needs of users. Users will suffer from less security by paying less to miners.

      If you are going to advertise Bitmark as a decentralized reputation platform, and then it turns out to be the equivalent of an ICO (promising to build something cool in the future and giving investors a return on their investment) then you are commiting fraud, i.e. that is a scam. Do you think I am just calling it a scam to attract attention? The lowered rate of money supply increase causes the price to temporarily go up, benefiting the centralized group of early investors, and then they can make a quicker profitable exit. I think some of the guys who I worked with in the Project Bitmark Team are fine to hang out with and talk about life and stuff, but now I can clearly see their bad side. Is it intentional? I cannot know for sure. It could be a misunderstanding on their part of how decentralized protocols work or someone could be pointing a gun at them, pressuring them to do what they don't want, who knows. But there are only 2 people with write permissions to the Bitmark github and one of them clearly supports my position, but it seems he doesn't want to be the one to make the decision for the community. Anyway, it's a pretty small group. I only know 3 people for sure who support this price manipulating fork: dbkeys, 82ndabnmedic, and the random guy jarr0s who started the discussion thread. jarr0s could easily be someone who works for another cryptocurrency and wants to harm Bitmark, but either way it doesn't change the argument.

      I think Bitmark, as an honest protocol has the potential to become just as big as Bitcoin. So investors who have 10000 Bitmarks for example would be very rich if this would reach full potential. But it won't reach full potential if it is permanently damaged by such a protocol change. Who wants to use a reputation platform that has a bad reputation? In case someone is interested, I wrote a sketch of how a meaningful web of trust can be created on the Bitmark blockchain, and it would be well incentivized in order to create a large amount of demand for Bitmarks: https://github.com/project-bitmark/bitmark/wiki/Marking-Protocol. It's a very rough sketch so still subject to a lot of change.

      So if someone wants to help please contact me. I am moving to a new house soon and the next week will be very hectic. I will just add an important announcement to miners and mining pools:

      To Mining Pools and Solo Merge Miners: You can stop this fork by not upgrading your node and continue mining with the current version. It is in your interest as the current version gives you a higher subsidy as needed by users who appreciate the security you provide. With a higher proof of work, recognized by all current nodes, exchanges will have to reject the proposed fork since it is very controversial due to its price manipulating purpose

      I will post more links soon to the correct versions you need to be using

      I understand that those who now manage a coin want to stop the coin's depreciation. for this they want to use centralized methods. and the original developer does not agree to a centralized solution. correct if I do not correctly understood the situation

      Hmm, not really.  First, @onelineproof is not the original developer.   But most importantly,  the changes the project is contemplating now would have a de-centralizing effect.

      I recall it this way:

      In years 2015, 2016 and 2017, Bitmark had a very low emission rate and block production rate, beacause it was often stuck with very high difficulty when miners came and went: (the "multipool" problem).
      The original diffalgo only adjusted difficulty every 720 blocks. (The "Multipool" problem was solved with DGWv3 diffalgo).  @onelineproof was contacted in January of 2017 to help implement changes and improvements that were originally discussed in Slack and were memorialized here:   Bitmark Hard Fork (April 2017) and design objectives finalized here: Hard Fork 1 Criteria (May 2017)  

      (Note: The originator of the project and original developer, @coinsolidation, left the project early on, sometime in 2015, iirc.  This is the old ANN thread where @coinsolidation announced Project Bitmark for the first time: Original Bitmark ANN thread )

      Hard Fork 1, Bitmark v0.9.7.0, was succesfully deployed on June 6, 2018, solving the issues detailed in the first two links above. Eight Proof-of-Work algorithms, each governed by DGWv3 and each targeted for a 16 minute block time, replaced the single SCrypt PoW algo that had been in service since the start.  These graphs detail the performance of the 8 PoW algos and the resulting overall composite inter bock time: Bitmark 8mPoW Performance (updated frequently)
       Additionally, novel technology, Coin Emission Modulation, CEM v0.1 was introduced as well. (Coin Emission Modulation has been extensively discussed and detailed elsewhere.)

      Hard Fork 1 not only introduced 7 new algos to Bitmark, but it allowed all 8 algos { SCrypt, SHA256d, Yescrypt, Argon2d, X17, Lyra2REv2, EquiHash & CryptoNote}  to be merge-mined. This proved succesful in vastly improving the hashrate and thus the security of the chain, but at the expense of eliminating most native mining.  Most other multiple Proof-of-Work (mPoW) coins allow merge mining on usually less than half their PoW algos. (For example, Argentum which has 6 PoW algos, has only AuxPoW enabled 2 of them: SCrypt and SHA256d;   likewise, Myriadcoin has only enabled merge-mining on 2 of its 5 PoW algos, also SCrypt and SHA256d. )

      Merge-mining is a simple and very low cost way for an existing mining operation to mine coins. I have not seen a real-life case analysis of what the fixed costs of a mining operation are and what the extra marginal cost of adding and mining AuxPoW enabled chains is on average; but it is simple to understand that if you already have equipment in operation and are already paying electricity and other recurring costs, simply adding an AuxPoW chain in addtion to the Parent Chain you are already mining on the same hardware and infrastructure would only cost a fraction, truly a very small additional cost in using your existing storage and extra processor cycles.

      Therefore the Hard Fork 2 proposed change in question is to reward native-mined blocks a bit more than merge-mined blocks and this way level the playing field.   This would have a de-centralizing effect, by incentivizing more miners to mine Bitmark algos directly (natively),  making it financially attractive to do so, discouraging centralization from large mining pools.
      Even with block rewards that are less than rewards payed to native miners, I believe that it will still be advantageous for the merge-mining operations to continue merge-mining Bitmark algos.

      The other changes we propose are evolutionary advancements of CEM, so that instead of acting on only 50% of the epoch reward, it can act on a larger portion, 80% and to make it somewhat more forgiving of hashrate swings by limiting its memory. (Instead of remembering hash rate peaks as far back as a year, CEM v0.2 would only look back 30 days.)

      I can't believe I am still arguing about this. Here we have early Bitmark investors (dbkeys and 82ndabnmedic) using their smooth-talking skills to justify the manipulation of the supply of the currency solely for the purpose of benefiting investors (just like a central bank would do). And in the same time the main website of Bitmark describes itself as a "decentralized reputation platform". If Bitcoin developers wanted to release a forking change that decreases the subsidy paid to miners, do you think that would pass? No way in hell.

      You can argue about the advantages and disadvantages of merge mining. I personally believe that merge mining is better for both decentralization and security compared with native mining. though I can see some advantages of native mining in some proportion, thus as a compromise, I proposed to let users vote on whether they support merge mining, weighted by transaction fees, and that would dynamically affect the merged to native ratio.

      But cutting out the reward from merged miners will drastically reduce the average reward per block which reduces security for users. The reward is what serves to prevent double spending. It is not the cost that matters. I can be mining and heating my house in the same time, or I can be mining with free excess electricity. Everyone has a different cost. If you want to frame it in terms of cost, then you can say it is the opportunity cost that matters. In Economics, opportunity cost of option A is what you would gain by choosing the next best option. So for a miner (merge miner or not), the opportunity cost of mining honestly is what he would gain by double spending. The opportunity cost of double spending is what he would gain by mining fairly. As the amount gained (subsidy) of mining fairly goes down, the opportunity cost of double spending goes down, thus the chance of double spending goes up.

      Thus I would say that merge miners may actually deserve a larger subsidy than native miners, because they are gaining from other coins, so they would not be much affected if they lose our rewards if they are so small compared to other coins. But I think it is simple to keep it the same. Whatever you choose (less or more reward), you need to appropriately balance it for native miners, so that the average reward per block remains the same. If not, then you are decreasing security. With this fork, the merged blocks will receive a much smaller reward, and most blocks will still likely continue to be merge mined, thus the average reward per block will drastically decrease, and result in a decrease in security for users. And for what? To give a boost to early investors so that they can make a timely and profitable exit?

      As for decentralization of merged vs native mining. As you see with Bitcoin, native mining also leads to large mining pools. This is inevitable, but individual miners can always pull out of a mining pool that causes harm. Also with 8 algos, we are very decentralized in terms of mining. Since mining is very competitive (especially with merge mining) each miner I believe has it in their best interest to specialize in 1 algo, thus it would be hard for one entity to control multiple algos.

      I will try to expose this scam as best as I can, but it is hard to do it alone. So if other people want to help concretely, then you can contact exchanges that trade in Bitmark or mining pools. Merge miners and mining pools actually have it in there best interest to reject this proposed fork as it decreases their reward. If we are successful at stopping this fork then we can continue with the current protocol and replace the current development team with one that is more serious about building a real decentralized reputation platform. I fully support free speech, so even if it's a scam, I don't think it should be illegal, just I want it exposed and people to follow a chain the puts users first, not investors.

      I think @onelineproof is confused about what serves to prevent double spending. It is not the reward per se, it is the work that goes into the hash computations, the Proof-of-Work.  
      There is some logic to saying that the larger the reward the likelier more work will go toward mining a block, but it is not a direct correlation: it is strictly the actual computational work that goes into finding the block versus the difficulty of surpassing that same work, (compounded as it becomes a string, more than one block),  which is the actual security.   Not the reward the blocks carry.

      He is making an assumption that the higher the reward the more work will go into finding the block. This is a reasonable assumption to make in general, but I believe its flawed logic in the case of merge-mining, for the reasons already given. To quote an old proverb, you "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth."   ie, It's basically a "freebie", so you shouldn't complain that it's not as big as the reward someone gets when they work harder for it. It's falling on your lap; you're getting it for almost no effort.

      The more work happening on a chain, the harder for a single actor to make a big effect, thus of course that helps to prevent double spending, which is why merge mining is good, since it adds more hashpower to the chain. But the reward is also important, since without a significant and stable reward, the miners can collude and create a double spend since it is more profitable than taking the honest reward. Doesn't have to be collusion, can be a short burst attack by one actor too.

      I didn't say that. Miners will look at profitability, which depends on the dollar value of the reward and inversely with the difficulty. Merge mining has a multiple chains with various rewards depending on the market value of the chains together with the reward for Bitmark, and you combine all the difficulties together with that to determine profitability. Native mining only includes the Bitmark reward thus is less profitable, but how much less depends on the market values of the other chains. You can't just pull a number from nowhere like 5 and say that native mining should get 5 times more reward than merge mining. Unless Bitmark has a much larger market cap than the other chains, it will still likely be more profitable to merge mine even with 5x less reward. The problem is now the merge miners are more likely to double spend on Bitmark since they are not gaining that much from Bitmark anyway, and they see that the rewards can easily be lowered by developers so they have even less trust in the value of mining honestly with Bitmark. Some of these are very unlikely attacks, and probably you will be fine without these protections. But why do you want to add security holes to the protocol just in order to give a favorable price to investors?

      My intention is not to annoy or make problems. I just want to inform the Bitmark community of users (if they still exist) that the Bitmark development team is compromised (I heard even Melvin Carvalho caved in to the demands), and if they want to stop that, now is the time. I would do the same thing if Bitcoin Core developers proposed some wacky fork that damages security for users. I am ringing the alarm with the hope of waking some people up. I think this is the responsible thing to do. If enough people join me, we can revolt and stick with the current honest protocol. It will all be clear soon enough...If this fork passes and not enough people join me, then whatever, I will move on. I can create a new currency with similar features.

      @dbkeys When can we expect new hard fork? I can't find that information anywhere.
      Changes you described are more than welcome at this point.

      Bitmark (MARKS) (BTM)
      Coin Emission Graph.
      The first 4 years

      Total coins issued as time goes forward. Graph starts July 2014 and goes until August 10, 2018, basically 4 years.

      Almost reaching 10 million Bitmark units. (10,000,000 = 1x10^7 )




      Notice how low our rate of emission was the first 2 or or 2.25 years...
       then it shot up and is only now moderating with CEM v0.1
      CEM v0.2 will do a better job, and merge-mining changes should help too to get it more in line with an overall average.
