Problem with fairbrix is that it needs a pool and an exchange to really kick off.  Look at the rally tenebrix is getting.

bitcoinexpress put out some bounties! also for a stats page Wink


So premining coins for bounties is not okay, but wrestling them from legitimate miners via overwhelming force is okay?

No offense, but that is a rather peculiar way of looking at things. I'd say, almost cartoonishly communist Wink

It's not ok, but in all fairness, ~35 thousands coins is a lot less than your 7.7 million premined coins.

7.7 million coins means total domination for a long time

about the bounties...  I am just being pragmatic. But I also think it would be funny.  Tongue

It's still chugging along in terms of network health.

Also... I tried to send 38 fairbrix to my newly installed wallet. no confirmations. it did come out of my account. I looked at Fairbrix transactions at Blockexplorer and there was no such record. What's happening?

Ok, I did receive the 38 fbx. I'm happy with that.

However, I still can't get the miner to work.
It still reads
HTTP request failed: couldn't connect to host
and json_rpc_call failed, retry after 30 seconds

Eventually it shuts down after 5 minutes

I suppose that you have the daemon up and running and that you have already compiled the miner.

This is my fbx.conf:
Code:
rpcpassword=pass
rpcuser=user
rpcport=8645
#Allow connections from my internal network. Change the address if you have a different subnet.
rpcallowip=192.168.1.*

dns=0
noirc=0

#uncomment this line if UNPNP gives you trouble
noupnp=1

# comment out this line (add # right in the beginning of the line) and / or set to 0 if UNPNP gives you trouble
#unpnp=1

daemon=1
server=1
gen=0
printtoconsole=0
Then I run the miner with
Code:
./minerd --url http://{daemon's IP address - NOT localhost}:8645 --user user --pass pass -s 3 -t 4
Try this way, even if they are on the same machine.

Fiat no more.

Ok, you can call me stupid. LOL I'm not sure what all that means ... but here's what I did.

1. I have the FBX wallet working.
2. I downloaded the Fairbrix-pack and unzipped
3. I started it by opening the START-MINING MS-DOS BATCH FILE
4. I followed the instructions on the black window that appeared
5. It read "press enter if mining solo" on every input
6. It trys do start but the message reads  "HTTP request failed: couldn't connect to host
and json_rpc_call failed, retry after 30 seconds"

Eventually it shuts down after 5 minutes

I tried my own IP address and it still did the same thing.

I'm not as smart as you, and I appreciate your help.

Anyone? I need help..... please see above.

Go to the Data\Fbrix_files\ directory in the folder where you unzipped the package.
Edit the fbx.conf file (use notepad to open it) and change the line "daemon=0" to "daemon=1"
Start Fairbrix (with Start_fairbrix.exe in the initial folder)
Start the miner using start_mining.bat and do what you did before.

It will work.

After you make it, you might want to check out some more advanced miners suggested in the original thread (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=46528.0) or customize the inputs (like setting the threads number to your processor's number of cores minus 1, so that you can have a working desktop while you're mining.

Good luck.

They do. But:

At the current difficulty, if you're mining with 10 KH/s (a fast processor with a few threads) you get a block every 2-3 hours. Then that block would need 150 confirmations to be credited in your wallet. At the current network hash rate, those 150 confirms can take a week or so.

NP. At the current rate the difficulty will probably drop 75% at the next adjustment, so don't despair  Smiley

Having a hard time finding feedback on fairbrix.  I'd like to know if a client is still available.  I'm worried its been a while and the binaries may be hacked.

Fairbrix always seems to have a few people mining it at any given moment, I usually see a few connections, seldom more than eight though even with incoming port open.

The nice thing about it is people only seem to be using CPUs still, so just like BBQcoin was last year Fairbrix is one of those coins that people without GPUs can mine effectively.
