Frankly, I think that FRX taking a different approach makes for more interesting experiment, but that does not necessarily mean a more viable cryptocoin.

The only reason to mine any coin (save for namecoin, sortof) is to exchange it.  You may be exchanging it for another "currency", or for USD, or for some physical item (though I doubt that, honestly.  Far too easy to scam someone as a seller given the non-reversableness of the payment), but exchanging is the point.
Once you take a look at how easy it is to scam someone who pays in *coins, exchanging for other forms of money becomes the only viable option.

If that's the only reason, then there's no point in the currency at all. The point of a currency is to buy goods. If it's just to exchange for another currency, then it's doom to fail.

Not at all, if you could easily dig up Zimbabwe Kronzes in your back yard and convert them to USD, wouldn't you do it?

Would you buy a $100 item with bitcoins directly?
Or would you use a central exchange/escrow service?

So what I want is to see if Fairbrix can stand on its own. See if people are willing to mine it without an exchange in sight. If people believe in the cpu-based mining concept without the premining, then they will continue to mine fairbrix... similar to how people mined bitcoins without an exchange early on. And if that happens, then it will become a viable alternative to bitcoin.

Any chance we could get a clear set of directions on how to do that with a Windows machine?

Download that and unzip it.  Double click "Start-Fairbrix".

After the client is running, double click the batch file "Start-mining".

You'll be mining Fairbrix in minutes.

The next step for Fairbrix is a block explorer. But it will take a fair bit of work to create a daemon version of fairbrix similar to what lolcust has done with the tenebrix daemon. Let me know what your thoughts are and I will decide whether or not to spend time on this.

I can host the FBX block explorer when/if the Unix daemon is available, if there is interest.

Thanks ama. I will work on the fairbrix daemon. Will let you know when that's done.

There is a bug in keystore.cpp, AddKey. A 'return true' should be there. I assume this is missing from a bitcoin merge or some commit not pulled into whatever history the original fairbrix source came from. This is the bitcoin commit where it was fixed.

What's the ancestry of the code? ie. What commits was it forked from in bitcoin or multicoin? It makes it hard to audit what changes were made when the history is broken.

It's direct descendant from Multicoin Exp.

Damn we (I mean both myself and multicoin)  need a notable overhaul.

Yeah it's very hard to see what bitcoin fixes are missing. The keystore thing shows at least one is. I see sacarlson/multicoin-exp doesn't have that fix either.

Well, that's where Tenebrix Daemon is coming from

What commit id was it forked from sacarlson/multicoin-exp originally? If I clone multicoin-exp and overlay the source from Tenebrix-daemon-exp then the diff I get shows it wasn't the master. For example multicoin-exp includes auxpow merged mining changes in src/db.cpp but Tenebrix-daemon-exp doesn't.

It was from the latest multimergermine branch, but it is a very very crude quick and dirty daemon.

I've...excised some of the aux stuff due to compile issues. Quick and dirty, tenebrix daemon is Sad

Cool.  It compiled fine.  I now only need the network address to set up the block explorer.  Anyone knows?

95 from the looks of it.
Code:
-#define ADDRESSVERSION   ((unsigned char)(fTestNet ? 111 : 0))
+#define ADDRESSVERSION   ((unsigned char)(fTestNet ? 95 : 95))

If my receiving address in the client is fL8P1QjhrwCmFQ4yLiVsDpAENXoQvzWXLR, should that show in the block explorer?

It says address not seen when I search it.

Not until you actually receive somthing with it.  Addresses only show up in the block explorer when they exist in the block chain, which only happens when they have at least one transaction.
