I remember following the launch of riecoin and even mined it in the first few weeks on ypool. I see things have changed up a little and there is not a private pool. I've contacted ziip and also messaged on the website but have not been able to get an invite. I'm currently mining on riepool and my stats are quite rubbish for an i7 running for 24 hours. I've 0.07 of a riecoin confirmed. Is there anyone that can provide an invite to the private pool?

Hopefully Riecoin development gets picked up again. It's a really neat coin IMO, anything that has real world value from POW is good.

The two nodes I set up have experienced multiple DDOS attacks in the last 24 hours but OVH eating them up with ease! BRING IT ON

Thank you for the explanation.  Can I do something to make the network more stable?

I feel quite daft asking but how do I get my wallet to start syncing to the network?

I've tried running the command addnod "nodeIP" "add" as per the node list at this address https://chainz.cryptoid.info/ric/#!network

I also grabbed some of the IPs in the previous page and used the command above. I noted that people mention a config file. I'm using windows and cannot see any such file in APPDATA or Program Files.

Help much appreciated.

Wow still difficulty 1804? This one is taking forever!

I feel quite daft asking but how do I get my wallet to start syncing to the network?

I've tried running the command addnod "nodeIP" "add" as per the node list at this address https://chainz.cryptoid.info/ric/#!network

I also grabbed some of the IPs in the previous page and used the command above. I noted that people mention a config file. I'm using windows and cannot see any such file in APPDATA or Program Files.

Help much appreciated.

Tried C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Riecoin\riecoin.conf?

Magician! Thanks! The conf file didn't exist but I just had to create it with the nodelist from cryptoid, restarted and it's now syncing. Any idea how much disk space this will take up as I may need to move it to an external drive?

Not very often recently, but I gather there were a lot of stability problems about a year and a half ago.  I was completely away from RIC for a while (sabbaticals are the best thing ever for academics... :-), so I wasn't really watching.  If you look back in the forum, though, you can probably find some discussions about crazy-high orphan rates when the network first started getting DDoS'd.  

Here's a fork reported in October 2017:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=446703.msg23395787#msg23395787

Here's a discussion from 2015 about the DDoS attacks - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=446703.4080

That accusation (Xpoolx accusing Simba (RiePool.ovh) of the DDoS) is one of the ones I was referring to.

And here's a plot of the historical orphan rates (orphans are what happens when there's a race to complete the chain -- a fork is just when the race goes on for a longer time):

https://chainz.cryptoid.info/ric/orphans.dws

You can see that things got really bad in late 2016 until early 2017.  Some time around then is when several people started adding extra DDoS-protected nodes to the network to try to reduce the chaos.  The orphan rates calmed down, but there's been a new spike the last few days.  (Amusingly, the DDoS is why I started paying attention again, because whomever was doing it launched an attack strong enough it took all of Carnegie Mellon University offline -- I had left a Riecoin node running in my office for the last few years, completely forgotten about it, and then... un-forgot. :-)



There's also some evidence that riepool is responsible for some attacks on uBlock.it. (though no evidence of riepool launching ddos attacks against nodes) when redjedievolution swapped from Riepool, he used the same worker names/passwords that he was using on Riepool and immediately these credentials were being used to launch an attack on the ublock stratum server.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=446703.msg24633879#msg24633879

As far as OVH for hosting a Riecoin node, I've had great luck with them so far.

Regarding the network forking, the network appears to be able to better handle these types of attacks now. Last year we were seeing several forks/day for a period.
I will spin up more high capacity ddos protected nodes again to help keep everyone in sync. I would encourage pool operators to add these nodes i'll post them once online and tested.

Nice to see the Riecoin network shrugging off these attacks, they only make her stronger in the long run  Cool

i'm really happy that despite the drama here and the constant attacks on both the network, the pools and here, the community stand strong.
this is indeed a sleeping giant.
i turned 5 cpus (from i3 to i7) more from nexus to riecoin at least until the halving.

Speaking of the halving, does anyone knows the exact date of the latter Huh

Every 840000 blocks - 811092(current block) = 28908 to go. Approximately 50 days.

Block 840000.  We're currently at 811091.  

840000 - 811091 = 28909.

Average block time is 2.5 minutes.  28909 * 2.5 / 60 / 24 = 50.18 days = March 8th.

That's slightly off from the original design projection (approximately Feb 11th).  I'm not sure if we've just had a slow period and it'll correct back to that, or if there's just a bit of slippage in the diff adjustment that will take longer to average out.

So -- definitely between Feb 11th and Mar 8.  I'd bet more towards the latter, but I'm not totally certain.

I'm not too sure how it works but doesn't the difficulty adjustment only factor in the last 288 blocks only?

For example if the adjustment just happened and we lost 90% hash rate then it would take 10X as long to mine the next 288 block but after that it would adjust to the current hash of 90% loss and block will be 2.5 minutes again?

How could it be this off?

You're right - thanks, I'd never read that part of the code.  The diff does adjust just based upon the previous interval.

I don't have a quick explanation for the slipping - it could be due to some approximations made for the diff targeting, or possibly something from the superblocks.

This does mean that the halvening should be around March 8.

And, fortunately, the slippage isn't bad -- I'll give gatra bonus points for only missing by 28 days in 4 years with as complicated a PoW diff to calculate as it is. Smiley

I understand gantra hasn't time to update the site and other bits but is anyone in contact with him who he trusts and allow the project to be updated i.e. update wallet, link to wallet ( currently shows it has a virus). It also doesn't have a current node list within. It's crazy that this coin is going up in value with no easy way to jump onto this project.

Hey guys,
Recently I found this project and it looks very interesting. But I have a issue with wallet - what do you suggest to use?
I tried the one on website - looks like it is not updating the blockchain...
Then I tried one web based wallet (https://cryptap.us/ric/jswallet/) - transferred 3 RIC from pool I'm mining to to that address and the coins are nowhere to be found after that...
Any suggestion where to keep my coins?

Thanks,
keep up the good work.

download the wallet and add some nodes to the riecoin.conf file in order to get it synced.

You can find the node list a few pages ago.

You can download the blockchain from either of these

or add these nodes to sync it yourself
