ProtoShares



ProtoShares uses a new Momentum Proof of Work (POW) algorithm that is designed to be GPU and ASIC resistant.
http://invictus-innovations.com/s/MomentumProofOfWork.pdf

There's a $5000 bounty for anyone who can prove it is vulnerable to GPUs or ASICs.

Backing
As well as being an altcoin, ProtoShares is a way to own BitShares before they are launched. When BitShares is launched, its genesis block will award one BitShare for every ProtoShare held.

In the Settings menu, you can choose to mine 1, 2, or 3 processes.

You can also use the debug console to start mining.

setgenerate true 1
setgenerate true 2
setgenerate true 3

Note there is a 3 process maximum because of memory limitations on the win32 client. You can run a second or third instance of the program if you want to try running more processes.

Why not release 64bit client then?

I'm just contracted to provide a win32 client to get started. I expect a 64 bit client will be a priority for Invictus in the days ahead.
A 64bit client should provide some speed gains too as SHA512 is very 64bit intensive.

3 processes means 3 threads, right?

For 4 cores 8 threads I7. I need 3 instances open with 3 ,3 ,2 miners working?

Yes, but what I'm seeing with the initial client release is that the memory gets bottlenecked after 2 or 3 threads, so it's not much of an advantage to have extra threads - it doesn't scale. I expect there will be more efficient code released over the coming weeks, eventually on an i7, you'll be able to have 8 threads pointed at 768MB for maximum efficiency.

Yes, just the client at launch. I think there's a mining pool under development which may or may not offer better mining efficiency.

Not sure if a linux binary will be made available - I think linux users may need to compile themselves, and I understand it is possible to compile a 64bit version easily on linux.

Yes, this guy killed off memorycoin by himself because he didn't get enough of the grants.
So he will most likely kill off this coin as well when things don't go exactly as he wants.
I would advise everybody to stay away from this 'dev' who can't even debug his software enough to make it stable.

FreeTrade will not kill of this coin because he is only the guy contracted to build it and its life is in my hands and the foundation of my VC funded company depends upon this coin... it is not meant to be a altcoin, but a way of mining BitSHares pre-release.

It will run on 64 bit on OS X and Linux if you compile it yourself (that is what I am doing)

I am attempting to get an OS X app out the door soon, but am fighting a few deployment issues.

FreeTrade has done his best to optimize the proof-of-work, but the code is open source and I am sure others will find ways to enhance it.

Advertising a 750k market cap in under 2 months is quite the claim
