Been mining a little on an old laptop at pool.bitquak.info and it's going well.  Glad to see an official sponsored MPOS pool.

I've been working on setting up the pool for about 3 months and finally got everything tested and up and going! I'm running it from my home server, so really no overhead other than my internet service itself :-)

Great job!  I just switched from cpu-pool.net to bitq.suprnova.cc the other day after my last cashout.

Worked perfectly! 

I created a MyBitQuarkWallet.bat file with:

%CD%\BitQuarkData\bitquark-qt.exe -datadir=%CD%\BitQuarkData


An and autorun.inf with:

[AutoRun]
OPEN=MyBitQuarkWallet.bat
ACTION=Run BitQuark Wallet
LABEL=My USB BitQuark Wallet


and placed them on the USB drive as the only 2 files.

I then created a folder on the USB drive called BitQuarkData and in there placed:

bitquark-qt.exe


Just curious if a windows shortcut would work better than a batch file?

I never thought of using a windows shortcut, I'll have to try that to get rid of the cmd window popping up, plus then an icon would be on it too so that would look a little cooler.

Yeah the Windows shortcut works great...I've used it before.
If you want to add an icon to the USB just save this BTQ icon image and add the following to your autorun.inf

https://github.com/bitquarkcoin/BitQuark-0.8.3r17/blob/master/src/qt/res/icons/bitcoin.ico

Code:
icon=bitcoin.ico

just place the bitcoin.ico image in the root directory of the USB and you can right click on it and select 'properties', then put a check by 'hidden' so that the icon will be hidden from view.

I done this yesterday and it looks really good. I'm also trying to figure out a way to keep the CMD window from popping up. This was an easy fix in earlier versions of Windows, but isn't so much with Vista and newer.

BitQuark 2015!!!!!!!!!

I love My USB BitQuark Wallet!  For us miners and types with a little technical background, the walkthrough put together between DannyTom and BitQuark works great!  

Here's a few things IMHO which need to be addressed to make "My USB BitQuark Wallet" feasible to the grandma/grandpa out there:

1.  BlockChain size - Not an issue now, but over the next few months as BitQuark gets to be as mass adopted as Bitcoin  Grin this will be an issue.  The BitQuark blockchain is under 1GB but the Bitcoin blockchain is something like 20GB so keeping the blockchain on a USB isn't feasible longterm.

2.  BlockChain download speed - If you run the bitquark-qt.exe directly from the USB drive as DannyTom stated it takes a long time to download the full blockchain, significantly longer than on your desktop, mainly due to USB write speed.

3.  Initial load time when you manually copy the blockchain over - It seems to take a while to initially load, maybe it was just me or maybe I did something wrong, but either way, grandma/grandpa ain't gonna wait.

4.  Virus/Malware Triggers - One thing I learned when I brought My USB BitQuark Wallet to work to show a co-worker is that the bitquark-qt.exe file triggers a TrendMicro warning on my work PC and TrendMicro deleted the bitquark-qt.exe which made me feel a little stupid.  My wallet.dat file was fine, but I forgot that all wallet software (bitcoin-qt, litecoin-qt, etc.) triggers a virus/malware warning unless I manually add an exception.  Again, for grandma/grandpa or for anyone taking their USB wallet to another PC, this could be an issue.

Again, I love it and I'm using it, but long term and for the non-techie masses, I don't think this can be a feasible solution.  We need a mobile wallet and a cloud/server based wallet provider for BitQuark, both of which I don't trust or use, but for grandma/grandpa and the non-techie masses that's something we're going to need for BitQuark to become as popular as bitcoin.

I hope I'm not sounding negative with this post, I just don't want someone new to bitquark to try this and run into any issues.  Maybe we should write up a professional sell sheet/guide/pdf for the process with disclaimers and warnings and kind of "bitquark copyright it" before another coin does so people can use it but know the drawbacks of it?

Is anyone considering contacting charities about accepting bitquark?  Even though this coin has a small market cap at the moment, if the community gives a $100 in bitquark to a campaign, it xould really help generate some views.
I'd be willing to donate, cash, existing btq or hash time.

Looks like my server might be down and I'm at work Sad I'll be home in about 3 1/2 hrs and I will get it back up and going so we can get back to mining!!!

I just uploaded windows bitquark-qt.exe (v0.8.3.17-BTQ) to virustotal and trendmirco didnt have a negative result for it. You should check if you got your wallet from a reputable source. The only antivirus software that did find it possibly negative was nod32, but nod32 thinks everything is a virus.

We could use a mobile / light wallet. I dont really understand the underlined part of your post though.

Ok got the website and pool back online. Looks like my power blinked during the morning and caused everything to shutdown. I will definitely have to invest in a UPS to prevent this from happening in the future!

Hi CommanderVenus,

https://multibit.org/en/help/v0.4/help_runFromUSBDrive.html

As for what you had underlined in #4 check the link above, you know create a branded PDF instruction guide for what we've talked about in this thread that lists how-to, limitations, etc. and make it branded for bitquark, even though it would work for any wallet that doesn't have a huge blockchain.

I know it sounds simple and common and we're all technically adept to do it on our own, but still a professional looking branded guide/instructions sheet/pdf with a bitquark logo on it would help to promote the coin I'm thinking.

As for the virus trigger, I'm downloaded bitquark-qt.exe (v0.8.3.17-BTQ) from the link in this thread.  My virus protection (AdAware and Symantec Endpoint) trigger all my wallets and miners as bad unless I manually add exceptions.

I think we're all on the same page.  the USB wallet is awesome for us, I just think we need to write it up and brand it specific to bitquark.

From my understanding about the Anti-virus being triggered is due to all the anti-virus companies flagging the code as "Bitcoin miner" virus. So it has to do with the nature of the code used to make the client. I guess that's a way of big businesses fighting back against Bitcoin and the like. The only other way to stop this from happening is to rewrite the whole code for the client, but I don't have the expertise to do that.

Oh now i get what you mean Mr.B!. That sounds like something we could and should do!

The only cryptocoin related things my virus protection ever flagged were mining software variants. Never a wallet though.

I was playing around while setting my laptop up today with Ubuntu 14.04. After install, I decided to compile minerd so I could mine some BTQ and I done some editing to the setup files and came up with a "MinerD BitQuark Edition"  and added some color to all the dullness Cool
So what do you guys & gals think?



Nice.  Is there a GPU mining guide anywhere for this?

This is a good thread for getting the best GPU miners for quark https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=475795
This is currently the one I use.

They just released sgminer v5 here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=632503.0
Haven't tested this version yet

Also if you are GPU mining, then it's more profitable to solo mine instead of pool mine. If you are GPU pool mining and you notice your hash rate is way high in the pool, then ad this code to your mining program's bat file --difficulty-multiplier 256
So, I pointed my GPU rig at your pool without the --difficulty-multiplier 256 flag, saw almost 1Th/s for my 4Mh/s real mining speed, a whole bunch of unconfirmed coins almost immediately and I'm thinking to myself "Self, why would I not want 1Th out for my 4Mh in?" Is that really spoofing the pool into awarding more coins for very little effort? WORKS FOR ME!!!  Grin

Yeah BitQuark, that's what I'm seeing with the wallet, not just the bitquark wallet, every wallet I have (bitcoin, litecoin, feathercoin, dogecoin, all of them)

I love putting the wallet on a USB credit card or flash drive and found that to be an awesome idea you and dannytom came up with, but if we're going to distribute such a thing to non-technical friends and family to spread around bitquark I just think we need some some type of professional looking PDF/guide written up for the total novice user so they don't immediately get scared and mistrust bitquark because they plug the wallet into their computer and get virus warning.

Yeah that's a great idea Mr.B! I think the PDF/Guide is totally do able. We just need to layout what all should be included.
