@gatra

I am now receiving the following error message with your latest Windows client while on testnet:
block with too much proof-of-work

However, the original Windows client works fine, any ideas?


maybe because I didn't put any valid checkpoint for testnet...
please try running riecoind with "-checkpoints=0" besides "-testnet"

http://ric.candypool.net/ seems down

http://ypool.net/ i get a malware alert - wtf?

Is there any good, trusted pool for this coin?
Any special mining software I should use, or just the one that comes with the client? There's no GPU miner (yet), correct?

Hey guys,

I made a Facebook Page but forgot about it for a while until now. I'd appreciate it if you guys like the page as I will try to actively post something daily about Riecoin.

I don't really believe that Gatra has had his own optimized version of the miner. Even if he did, he wouldn't be able to mine a majority of starting blocks unless he owns a super large botnet.
This was the first fair coin launch that I saw and I think this is why people feel like it was 'hard to mine'. Only 200k Riecoin were created within the first three days. In comparison, Primecoin generated 600.000 XPM within the same timespan. Everyone complaining should just move on and insta-mine the next coin.

Regarding the low value, Poloniex and all the other small exchanges don't really have any buy support at the moment. The value can only go down there. Just take a look at Poloniex stats:
Sell Orders    Total: 24345.77892931 RIC
Buy Orders    Total: 2.35857895 BTC
There are only 300.000 RIC in existence. This means Riecoin only has a market cap of around 200 000 USD. Even the worst of the clone coins have more than that, it is only a matter of time until value shoots up. If you believe in Riecoin it would be a good time to actually buy more RIC and wait for the big exchanges to add it.

I completely agree that this coin was fairly launched. People in my position had the time to study the proof-of-work and start work on their own miner implementations in advance. As for me, I did not have the time until last weekend. I spent about 4 hours implementing my own optimized miner and it is only slightly faster than jh00's implementation.

I will continue to mine both Riecoin and Primecoin. And at this time, I am much more interested in optimizing the miner than I am interested in the coin's current market value - this coin is only a few days old.

So far, my  implementation uses 16,777,216 sieving primes with a 240-bit primorial. This weekend, if time permits, I will search for better pseudo-primorials.


If you're going that route also - have you modified the rminerd in a clean way to handle 256 bit nonce results coming from the scan function?

This would be a great patch to get gatra to accept for the reference implementation.  My own hack is just a silly quick fix, or I'd submit it.  It's a core function needed for a lot of the ways to build a very fast scanner.  I'd be delighted to share some of the work of improving the infrastructure for all of us poking at faster miners.

I may be a little late the to the party, but would someone mind giving me a brief update of where things stand?  Is the development team active, mining etc.?

Thanks!

The developer just released a new wallet and is working on P2Pool and eventually a new GPU miner, and the difficulty has been about the same for a few days despite the price on exchanges falling substantially.

I did it for 64 bit nonces, which seems enough. Will publish during the weekend, but I think my miner is not faster than xptMiner...

Thanks!  So, everything seems to be looking up?  So many coins to sift through that I overlooked this one.  Looks intriguing.

Depends on the approach you're taking.  If you want to use a stupidly big primorial, as both supercomputer and I seem to be doing, then you need 256.

There's actually an interesting gap between the spec and the protocol implementation, btw:  The spec says that you can find a nonce that fits within the number of 0's added to the end to pad to the required difficulty, but the protocol implementation seems to only permit a 256 bit nonce (unless that's just the miner?).

Which one is correct, out of curiosity?

Thanks for a lot of fun, btw.  I really like this one.  Though I'd also love to quibble about the time-to-find-block estimator.  *grin*

Agreed, a (slightly less than) 32bit nonce is feeling pretty small at high rates.  With a 240-bit primorial I would be surprised if you got many (if any) 6-chain candidates within the exiting nonce.  But I've not spent any time looking at the issues in using a bigger nonce (still focusing on correctness of code).

It should resemble the following if you are using the GMP library, sorry for the typos if any.

// calculate offset
mpz_sub(z_rop, z_N, z_target);
mpz_add_ui(z_rop, z_rop, n);

uint32 size = mpz_sizeinbase(z_rop,2);
printf("\nDATA NONCE Size = %u\n", size);

// submit work
for( uint32 j=0; j<z_rop->_mp_size; j++)
{
   memcpy(&pdata[20+2*j], &z_rop->_mp_d[j], Cool;
   pdata[20+2*j] = swab32(pdata[20+2*j]);
   pdata[20+2*j+1] = swab32(pdata[20+2*j+1]);
}

return 1;
