riecoin

Launched between 20:00 and 23:59 UTC on Tuesday, Feb 11th, 2014

Want something added to riecoin.org? request it here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0As6q17G29AHxdENBMzNIT3NSSWlic0Y4TnJKZTlSUEE&usp=sharing

New client v0.10.2 Mandatory update: hard-forked at block 160704
Hard fork was successful! It allowed us to break the world record for the largest prime sextuplet with 654 digits
Sources are in github (github.com/riecoin/riecoin) and binaries in sourceforge (https://sourceforge.net/projects/riecoin/files/riecoin%200.10.2/).
More details here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=446703.msg9396060#msg9396060

Download optimized solo cpu miner v3.1.1:https://sourceforge.net/projects/riecoin/files/cpuminer%20rminerd%203.1.1/

General parameters:

  • PoW: new idea, prime numbers, not Cunningham chains
  • Blocks every 2.5 minutes
  • Block reward of 50RIC, halving every 840000 (about 4 years)
  • Cap: about 84 million RIC
  • Difficulty adjustments every 576 blocks (24hs) 288 blocks (12hs)
  • RPC port 28332, or 38332 for testnet
  • P2P port 28333, or 38333 for testnet

Website: http://riecoin.org/ (currently down beacuse of DDos)

The process of money creation in Bitcoin - referred to as mining - involves executing software that utilizes your hardware running sha256 hashes until a certain criterion is met. This part of the mining process is called generating a "Proof of work". The whole mining process also has a critical role in processing transactions and providing security to the network. It is estimated that all the processing power devoted to Bitcoin mining represents more computing power than several of the largest supercomputers in the world combined. Wouldn't it be great to be able to use all that massive power for something else?

Even special purpose hardware was designed for Bitcoin mining. Some consider this a waste of resources, while others argue that supporting a decentralized currency is hardly a waste. We believe that the mining process required for currency to work does not need to include hashing functions as a Proof of Work, and that a "more useful" calculation can be done instead.

That's the point of Riecoin: the mining process, besides fulfilling its function to the operation of the network, generates series of prime numbers as a by-product. This prime numbers are of interest to mathematicians and the scientific community. Riecoin is proof that it is possible to effectively harness all that massive computing power to something useful other than hashing functions.

Fair launch:

Since this is a new PoW, it is very hard to define a starting difficulty that avoids instamining. To overcome this and contribute to a fair launch, the first 576 blocks will have no reward and the next 576 will linearly increase and reach the full reward at block 1152, after 4 difficulty adjustments were performed. Besides avoiding instamining, this should allow time for those who want to compile their own clients.
Expect the starting difficulty to be hard.
Source code will be provided a few days before launch, but the PoW functions will be replaced by stubs. The idea is that everyone would be able to examine the code and confirm that there's nothing strange and it is indeed pretty similar to bitcoin's. Everyone would be able to compile it, see if they have the correct dependencies, etc, but it won't run. At launch time, when the final code is released, everyone could easily check that the only thing that changed is the PoW code, so you'd only have to check the diff of a few lines of code and recompile.

Mining

A basic miner is embedded in the client (use "setgenerate true"), but a fork of cpu-miner that is much more optimized will be released too. Optimized mining requires a sieve, which in general create a RAM access bottleneck, so it's hard to predict how much improvement would you get by using the GPU. I'd bet someone will find a way to implement an efficient GPU miner. Same thing with ASICs. But if they make an ASIC for this, they would be making an ASIC that could be used to find interesting prime number structures.

What is the utility of hashing prime numbers?  Or are you searching for large primes (as opposed to cunningham chaims of Primecoin)?

This question will be better explained in a few days when I release the details of how the PoW works.
But yes, we'll be searching for large primes, and as the difficulty increases the size of the primes will grow larger. In fact that's how the retarget works: every 288 blocks a new size for the required primes is calculated in order to have 1 block every approx 2.5 minutes.

In contrast, Primecoin puts an upper bound on the size of the primes in its chain.

ughhhh. Not another Hype-Coin. Besides a tweak to the algorithm there is (yet again) nothing of real value with this new coin. Wow you can find prime numbers. PrimeCoin does that. Problem is everyone is scratching and scraping to get on the next "Bitcoin" so any new coin that gets released everyone and their grandmother jumps on it.

Sure, people will make money once accepted into exchanges but after x amount of time this coin will be like all the rest. Just a few pennies in a sea of endless alt coins.

This is part of the problem. Week after week anyone with a basic programming and marketing knowledge can make the next hypecoin. There is no innovation here. You can find prime numbers? a little different way? whoop-de-do.

How do you expect your coin to get passed the hype-trade?

The 3 major players are as follows:

BTC
LTC
PrimeCoin

That is it. Ride the hype! Go for it! make some money! but for long term investors? Like myself? NO THANKS.

Good Luck with your coin though. Really.
These type of coins are really really irritating!

I did read what the coin was about on their website and it is nothing but a hype coin. Prove me wrong. Tell me what this coin brings to the table that is so innovative anyone outside the market will adopt it? There is nothing. Ok so the algorithm changed up a bit. Tell me how your neighbor charlie that  bought a 2000$ mac to play games on facebook cares about a few lines of code change?

Again, nothing innovative. Nothing but hype coin.

Please prove me wrong

No the only thing that is irritating in this thread is you/your sock puppet. Different way of finding prime numbers, are you this stupid? Hint: primecoin searches for CUNNINGHAM chains. That's not searching for primes from 2 to infinity like you apparently think was the case...

If you're invested in Primecoin you would have wanted to get your facts straight before that. You know, facts about your investment kinda affect the valuation Wink.

As i said before go and ask for free innovative Doge or mine it with your neighbor charlie 2k (lol) MAC failcomputer and please let this coin with the few more no innovative according to you code lines to us Smiley
