Fairbrix is a GPU-unfriendly coin based on Lolcust's Tenebrix. The main difference between Fairbrix and Tenebrix is that Fairbrix does not come with 7.7 million premined coins. In fact, only 100 blocks were premined. Like Tenebrix, Fairbrix uses scrypt for proof of work. This makes it hard for GPUs to calculate proof of work. So it's more cost effective to use CPUs for Fairbrix mining.
- scrypt proof of work
- 25 coins per block. this stays the same forever
- blocks found every 5 minutes on average
- 2016 blocks difficulty retargeting (1 week on average)
- default rpc port: 8645
- default port: 8591 (open this in your router)
Anyways, here's the client source: https://github.com/coblee/Fairbrix
Windows binary and miner: https://github.com/downloads/coblee/Fairbrix/fairbrix-win-client-v1.0.zip
Linux daemon: https://github.com/coblee/Fairbrix-daemon
Currently, you must use one of these miners that uses Scrypt: https://github.com/Lolcust/Tenebrix-miner https://github.com/ArtForz/cpuminer
- Fastest but experimental
Also, you may need to configure it for your machine to get the optimal speed. Check the README file. Somewhere on the forums, people have suggested running configure like this:
CFLAGS="-march=native -O3 -Wall -msse2 -msse3 -msse4.1 -msse4.2 -msse4 -mavx" ./configure
CFLAGS="-march=native -O3 -Wall -msse2 -msse3 -msse4.1 -msse4.2 -msse4" ./configure
To mine, you will need to copy the fbx.conf file to:
Windows: C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\fairbrix
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/fairbrix
And make sure you change the rpcuser/rpcpassword in the fbx.conf file.

Pool and exchange should be coming soon.
