Easy To Use Solo Miner for ProtoShares - 2.9% fee.

Update, now 4x to 5x more collisions than stock.

Freed up now from my obligations to Invictus to get ProtoShares up and running with a basic wallet and miner, I've turned my attention to creating an optimized miner for everyone who is still mining solo. I think I've done well and you should see 2x to 3x more collisions with this miner than with the stock miner. Crucially this miner has better support for threading - that means many threads are working on a single block, rather than the stock miner's one thread per block method. That means much faster hashes, and many fewer stales.

Updated. You can set the miner at either 1,2,3 or 4 thread. Each thread uses 4 threads of its own, and 512MB. This should mean you can see 100+ collisions in a single instance of the program. You might get better results running two instances - it'll depend on your setup.

Note: I haven't worked out how to get the mining threads to shut down gracefully yet, so when you stop mining or try to change the number of mining threads, the program crashes. So decide how many threads you want and leave it there. Restart the program if you need to change it.

2.9%
For each block mined, 1 PTS goes to my address - at current block reward that's about 2.9%

Could you release linux binaries for those of us on VPS?

@pankkake: he's taking 1PTS/block unenforced by the network, of course he can't release source

If I set genproclimit=4, then task manager shows only 68-72 percent of CPU utilize (Core i5 2500K). Is it normal?

Yes, it means your CPU can generate SHA512's faster than they can be processed into memory. A second instance should help, but gains won't be linear.

Use a different port and directory - command line is

protoshares-qt.exe -port=5655 -datadir=C:\optimized\

Btw you cannot release miner based on bitcoind code without sources since its violate licence under which bitcoind/protosharesd released

It's some sort of MIT license, so he can.

Not for all files there some under GPL2 and other licenses so =D where is sources?

Hi, trying your miner on one of my dual xeon servers. With the yPool miner I was getting about 320 collisions per minute. Running 16 instances, yes I do have the ram to handle it. I get a total of about 160. Am I comparing apples to oranges here? If this is accurate then you need to update your solo miner with JH00's code.

Thanks Alexxy, but I'm not of the opinion I'm breaking the terms of any license that I'm using.

I think some miners are mistakenly quoting cpm as hpm, so you can compare those figures directly except in old miners.

Difficulty just went up - so you need about 2,000,000 collisions to expect one block at the moment. At 48cpm .  . that's 28 days. Ouch.
