Riecoin is currently prone to double spending attacks. Upcpu controls 100% of the network. Please solo mine if you have significant amounts of processing power. Thanks.

What is double spending attacks? and why would Riecoin be in such a prone to it now?
This is also known as a 51% attack.

A 51% attack is where an entity confirms transactions involving double spending of coins in their blocks, and the entity finds blocks faster than the rest of the network. The network automatically accepts blocks and if there is a tie it accepts the first block to have another block built on top of it, and so on until the tie is broken. So, with 51% of block solving capabilities, one is able to make the network accept transactions involving double spending coins.

upcpu is solving all of the blocks, so if they wanted to, they could double spend their coins.

More on Double Spending

Was the main technical PoW explanation removed from riecoin.org? I was about to reference it. Think it used to be after "What is new about Riecoin" and before "How is Riecoin different from Primecoin"

The difficulty is going to crash if ypool doesn't start running again.  Cool

Is that why I am getting a connection server error with dga's new miner?
If you are attempting to connect to ypool, yes.

Is there a new Minerd for solo mining?
Or is it possible to set up B10 for solo mining? If so then what settings


a00k's miner is good for solo mining. I believe it is as good as dga's B10 pool miner. B10 didn't improve on finding blocks, it only improved on finding shares.

Also: it's been 40 minutes since a block was found. No significant computing power is going towards solo mining. The only entity finding blocks currently is ric.upcpu.com. This needs to be fixed asap or no transactions will be confirmed  Undecided

gatra: I think this shows we should reduce difficulty adjustment to 1 block.

Is a00k's solo miner still linux only?

If you are going to leave your BTC on an exchange please send it to this address instead 1GH3ub3UUHbU5qDJW5u3E9jZ96ZEmzaXtG, I will at least use the money better than someone who steals it from the exchange. Thanks Wink

UPDATE1: Bizarrely enough b10 works on some machines but not on others. The machine will the most memory 32 GB crashes within 3 seconds, so does a VM with 1 GB. But one with 8GB works fine! any advice?
UPDATE2: The build still fails with a missing atomic include, despite the GMP upgrade. Sad

1: what's the reason of crash?
2: that's to be expected, because:

Code:
$ g++    -c -o main.o main.cpp -H 2>&1|grep "atomic$"
. /usr/include/c++/4.8.2/atomic
$ rpm -qf /usr/include/c++/4.8.2/atomic
libstdc++-devel-4.8.2-13.fc19.x86_64

I've pushed a few new changes the repository and updated the binaries to -b11.  Changes:

- Import clintar's fix for reconnecting if the server is rebooted to improve robustness;
- Fix too-high dev fee to jh/clintar in source (this was fixed in the -b10 binaries, but I never pushed it to the source tree)
  (The bug:  Instead of donating 0.25% to each of them and subtracting 0.5% to me, it subtracted 0.5% and then donated the full amount to each person)
- Remove unneeded use of atomic header file to simplify build process with older gcc

why RUhMA8bvsr48aC3WVj3aGf5p1zytPSz59o is added twice?
what does ypool.net do to duplicated entries?
was the 10% donation really 20%?

Code:
Fee Percentage:  5.00%. To set, use "-d" flag e.g. "-d 2.5" is 2.5% donation

xptClient_addDeveloperFeeEntry RUhMA8bvsr48aC3WVj3aGf5p1zytPSz59o: integerFee=2500
xptClient_addDeveloperFeeEntry RDrQYV7VHbnzUDX8BmcjoradKGVQaBcXXi: integerFee=125

No - it's a code weirdness i inherited from clintar's build.

The first one gets overwritten by the second ones when the connection is being setup.  (To verify this, go check your connected miners list on ypool, it will show the fees).

I'll remove the unnecessary one for b12 to simplify output.

avx or avx2?  I can try, but I'm windows-impaired.

I've bumped the version number displayed on startup in the source tree to match the binary filenames, but I'm not going to upload new binaries unless it really freaks people out that b11 says it's b10. Smiley

You're right, I thought it was there but I couldn't find it on the new site. We need to add this back asap!
In the mean time, you can still find it in the old site here: http://riecoin.biz/

You are probably on CentOS, update GCC to version 4.7 via devtools

  -Dave

The one for the most recent cpus (i7) so i guess avx2


I tested this new miner for several hours now, on different cpus: it's a lot faster than ypool's one but i got A LOT of invalid shares.

Hi Dave,

Any plans to add stratum to your miner or add your blazing fast engine to the default miner that does support stratum?

I'm really curious because our stratum pool will launch today.

Thanks!

Agreed!

Alternatively, do you know what backend upcpu uses? Looks a lot like the 1gh pools and supports xpt.

Like you, I'm using mpos. Looks like there are some challenges to make RIC fit their performance metrics and stats. Do you really just have zero/one miner online and no blocks or is that an mpos issue?

Yes only 1 person is mining. Not many will mine on the pool because the miner for stratum is currently 8 times worse at finding blocks than xptMiner.
