Okay your posting says to use port 8337 but your wiki says use port 8338. Which is it?

Also what is the name of the config file? ixcoin.conf? bitcoin.conf?

Your tutorials dont have proper documentation for anyone to start mining.

How do you expect people to help the project if you don't even have basic documentation?

ixcoin.conf, point miner to ixcoin.exe, start a solo miner with port 8337. Pretty simple stuff and I have little idea what I'm doing.

I'm pretty sure 8337 is for the p2p network and 8338 is for RPC to connect the miner with the daemon.
Also ixcoin.conf.

Edit: Sorry for apparent double posting. There was a post between my 2 responses that has been deleted already.

What would my ixcoin.conf file look like? Post an example please.

Also, my math now puts network speed over the 2 GH/s mark. Not a huge amount of interest, but considering this was posed a bit under 3 hours ago and one hour ago was a bit over 1 GH/s... I'm keeping my eye on this one. I still think Namecoin has more promise, since it also fulfills a non-monetary purpose, but I'm keeping my eye on this one.

Nice.  That is 2GH not mining on the bitcoin network.

Some big company will buy them all and use the currency for internal use. For instance a points or rewards program. Air Miles, maybe.

Like Tim Horton's or Starbucks.

Some big company could just create their own currency.

You just have to open up the source code, choose the amount of coins per block, tweak the genesis block and that's it! You created YouNameItCoins. I can make a GUI to create currencies if you like.

You could even choose 1 million per block. Why wait 4 years anyway?

rpcuser=youruser
rpcpassword=yourpassword
server=1

and if you want increase your connection limit.
maxconnections=60
I'm just guessing that'd be a good idea in order to decrease rejects because you're more up 2 date with the blockchain.

How many blocks have been solved?? It keeps downloading and downloading to no end.
At the current rate you won't see it "ending" the download. 7418 at the time of writing. They are generated really fast until the difficulty change.

Nice.  That is 2GH not mining on the bitcoin network.  

Chances are that a substantial portion of that power would not be mining bitcoins anyway. At difficulty 4 you can still CPU mine somewhat effectively. 2 GH/s is what, 10 Radeon 5830s? I get the feeling it's more like a few dozen people on low-end nVidia cards, CPU or throwing one card out of their cluster at the task. Most of this power probably wouldn't be mining bitcoin or namecoin anyway since both have an effective difficulty FAR too high for low-end miners.

So I generated my first 2 blocks less than a second apart.

Why do you say "16*6=96 IXC" when "96 IXC" would suffice¿?¿ 16*6 means nothing as far as i can tell

16*6 is a reference to the X in Ixcoin, as in Hex/Hexadecimal/16.

It is going to take a bit to download those 580,000 already mined ixcoins.

A few Q's:

1. What vendors accept Ixcoins?
2. What is being done to build/strengthen trade infrastructure with Ixcoins?
3. What is being done to ensure secure transactions between merchant/customer?

So how much are they worth currently anyway? 0.0001 BTC each? How much is that in NMC? In GRP? In DVC? In MBC? Etc.

Will be good when there are more exchanges that ignore stupid fiat crap in favour of exchanging actual bitcoin-type currencies.

Hm Linux 64bit client doesn't start... Very strange... Huh

Sorry to hear that. Do you get an error message? What platform are you running?

Current Ubuntu 64bit, the client window isn't showing up, but the directory with the blockchain and wallet was created. I tried to start ixcoin not ixcoind in the 64 directory.

This likely happens because of wx widgets. I think it was because of version 2.9 that the gui doesnt show up

So, this is a bitcoin clone, with no added purpose, nobody accepting it for anything and no place to buy or sell it.  To top it off he's here on the bitcoin forum trying to steal miners and developers from a potentially awesome project?  C'mon man...  This seems horrible for bitcoin in my opinion.  How am I supposed to talk anyone into accepting bitcoins when there are 5 million bitcoin clones out there all trying to compete with the project they ripped off?

You ripoff artists willing to do anything to make a quick buck off the backs of good people and great ideas are basically attacking the bitcoin that we all love so dearly.  I don't see how people like you who are creating competing currencies using the same exact software could be looked at by this community as anything other than the enemy.

Creating a fake japanese sounding name and using that avatar was awesome though.  If you weren't being serious about this, it would have been an awesome joke.  Now it's just a bad joke.

You seem to have added a get block RPC but apart from that your changes look pretty normal, except that you seem to have neglected to change the four-byte hello sequence that protects each variant from chatting pointlessly with some other variant when people start using patches that allow them to run on non-standard ports.

As long as people stick to the hardcoded networking port, fine. But as soon as some user of mainstream bitcoin hacks his bitcoind to use some weird port that happens to be the port Ixcoin normally uses, you will get told of thousands of nodes all of which will be happy to flood you the same way if your code too is willing to try connecting to a port other than its hardcoded normal port.

So I'd suggest maybe picking a hardcoded hello string for your main net and your test net and get them in use quick before there are so many nodes it is a bit late for such a change.


Good point. We were torn on that one. We didn't change the four-byte hello sequence in the end because we wanted to maximize compatibility with third party Bitcoin apps/websites and minimize adoption difficulty.

I really think you should do this.  Also you should come up with a config file for multicoin.  I think not too far down the line we are going to have a multicoin like client that works on multiple block chains at the same time and multiplexes one port.  You should position ixcoin for this now while it is the easiest to get everyone switched over.

In order for you to create a new currency, the old currency has to first be broken.
