    PHOTON (PHO)
  
    
    
    Twitter
    
    
    Photon is a Cryptocurrency using the Blake 256 Algorithm.  It is a new project designed to function well now and with future technology in mind.  Photon is the second coin to use this unique design (modeled after Blake Coin) and may be mergemined in a pool with Blake Coin or other Blake 256 coins in the future.
    
    Currently almost every Cryptocurrency that exists cannot be merge mined in the same way Namecoin and others are with Bitcoin.  Coin developers are working against each other instead of together right now. Photon is an attempt to change that.  If you are digging in a mine for gold you would not leave silver, tin or other things of value around; you would take them all.
    
    This is why Photon was created with the fast & light Blake 256 algorithm.  This is the future.  Scrypt coins cannot be merge mined. Most Sha-256D coins cannot be either.  I could not have completed this project without the input of Bluedragon747, the creator of Blake Coin. Many thanks.
    
    Photon can be mined by most people with a CPU or GPU.  Below is information on how to mine Photon with some FPGA boards (ASIC's for Bitcoin cannot be used to mine photon.)
    
    Unlike Scrypt-1024 and other variations it is possible to mine Photon with ASIC technology designed to solve Blake 256
    although none currently exist or are in development to my knowledge. The memory limitations of making ASIC's for
    Scrypt 1024 are not a problem with this algorithm.  Blake-256(optimized) is faster than Scrypt, SHA-256D and Keccak.  The algorithm was written as a candidate for SHA-3, Based on round one candidate code from the Sphlib 2.1 library and reduced the round function to 8 rounds.

    
    
   
    Advantages
    
    Design
    • simplicity of the algorithm
    • interface for hashing with a salt
    
    Performance
    • fast in both software and hardware
    • parallelism and throughput/area trade-off for hardware implementation
    • simple speed/confidence trade-off with the tunable number of rounds
    
    Security
    • based on an intensively analyzed component (ChaCha)
    • resistant to generic second-preimage attacks
    • resistant to side-channel attacks
    • resistant to length-extension
    
    Why Photon using the Blake-256 algorithm beats others in the long run
    
    • The Blake-256 algorithm hash rate is just under 3x faster on the GPU and just over 2x on the FPGA compared with Bitcoin
    • The reward for mining Photon does Not decrease over time, instead it increases with block height and difficulty
    • There are no restrictions on any platform as Photon does not include artificial *Security* or *Resistance* that reduce mining hash rate and power efficiency
      
    
   
    SPECIFICATIONS
    
    • Coin Type: Blake-256
    • Block Reward: 32768  + inflation (square root of (difficulty * block height))
    • No reduction of block reward
    • Cap in place to reduce difficulty jumps upward.
    • Block Target Time: 3 minutes
    • Retarget: 20 blocks
    • Total Coins: 90,000,000,000 (Yes, 90 Billion coins --- Photons are plentiful in the universe)
    • Block Maturity: 120

    Special thanks to Jimmy at Cryptocointalk for the Official Support Forum.  Remember, this is experimental software. It has been tested, but like all new technology, tests may not reveal everything.  Photon was designed to be innovative and cutting edge today and help lead new trends in Cryptocurrency.
    
    Photon was built and tested by @Cinnamon_Carter and is a stand alone project with special compatability for the future.
    
    Photon is not part of any other similar projects that may be in development by others using the Blake-256 algorithm design by BlueDragon747.

Found about 7 blocks so far.  I started around block 900.  4x 280x's and 1 7950.

280x are getting 2.5GH/s each
7950 is getting 1.75GH/s

6 Blocks for me on two 270's.  Now that the coin is posted here, looks like my chances for any future blocks are gone.  Oh well, I'll wait for the pool.  My first time solo-mining a coin though!  Giveaways for a first timer? ;-)  Photon Address: Be6HeSpnpHGzPwbkYMg9mkdyUnPz73xp2T


Have some fun with this coin, it has some great ideas for the community!  To the moon?

Laptop with an AMD 6990m @ 675.5mhash apparently.
What are my chances of finding anything?

Donations appreciated. Smiley

I have been doing well too. I got in around block 1200. I think this may have been announced in another forum before it was here. Gonna go check it out.

It wasn't premined. It was Announced here https://cryptocointalk.com/topic/5903-photon-pho-information/ 1 hour and 15 minutes before it was posted here.

I've bookmarked that site too now.   Around 16 blocks found now, only 1 orphan.  Its refreshing to not have hundred's of orphans flying by, those are depressing.

I've spent a few hours on cgminer setup and need some help.  I used the cgminer dl in the OP.  It has a blake256.conf file and a cgminer. conf file.  Anyone know the correct settings?  Win7 64.

My photon.conf looks like this:

listen=1
gen=0
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
rpcport=8984
server=1
daemon=1
addnode=162.243.101.139


And the cgminer.conf looks like this:

{
"pools" : [
   {
      "url" : "http://localhost:8984",
      "user" : "username",
      "pass" : "password"
   }
],


The rest of the stuff should be customized for your card(s).

The cgminer.conf file is what you're after.  But first you need to create a photon.conf file in your Users/user/appdata/Roaming/Photon folder with the following details:

listen=1
gen=0
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcuser=username
rpcpassword=password
rpcport=8984
server=1
daemon=1
addnode=162.243.101.139

I bolded the details where you put your personal information.  After this photon.conf file is saved in your appdata folder, change the same bolded settings in your cgminer.conf file:

{
"pools" : [
   {
      "url" : "http://127.0.0.1:8984",
      "user" : "Username",
      "pass" : "password"
   }
],

"intensity" : "11",
"auto-gpu" : true,
"expiry" : "10",
"failover-only" : true,
"gpu-threads" : "1",
"log" : "5",
"no-restart" : true,
"queue" : "5",
"scan-time" : "1",
"worksize" : "128",
"temp-hysteresis" : "4",
"blake256" : true,
"vectors" : "1",
"kernel-path" : "/"
}

Save this conf file, and open cgminer.exe.  The lower details (intensity, etc.) can be adjusted according to your GFX card.  If you're a newbie to that too, I'd suggest only messing with the Intensity.
