Merged mining will start in 3 days

It is ready now but it cannot be released until everyone upgrades their clients

Here is a new windows qt build with the new 'heartbleed' fixed open ssl version and new checkpoints also

http://www.mediafire.com/download/q1qtj6brtnvs7rh/Photon_Win_Qt_8.9.1.1_.7z       version 8.9.1.1   


Updated source on github is available also

https://github.com/photonproject/photon/tree/master/src


More information will follow very soon  --- exciting times ---- Congratulations to BlueDragon747 the developer of Blake Coin for making it possible.

I did not want to cut everyone off the network suddenly but if you don't update before we start merged mining (even if you do not plan to participate in merged mining) you may not be able to send or receive coins.  EVERYONE MUST UPDATE THEIR CLIENT     

I will get the main post of this page changed as soon as possilbe. 

Check out my coin Photon
Merge Mine 5 other Blake 256 coins - 6x your hash power  https://www.blakecoin.org/

Here is a picture of the new updated code running and the block crawler is updated also

Almost finished , if you run a node for Photon, please rebuild your daemon with the most recent changes on github

If you rebuilt after my first 'auxpow' commit you do not need to redownload the blockchain.

If you are using an older build you must redownload the blockchain after backing up your wallet

https://twitter.com/cinnamon_carter/status/462023032362795008/photo/1

There are lots of people connected to the network , Photon version 80901 is the most recent and correct build.

Has anyone compiled the latest version on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS?

Code:
user@host:~/photon-master/src$ make -f makefile.unix
Building LevelDB ...
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/user/photon-master/src/leveldb'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `libleveldb.a'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/user/photon-master/src/leveldb'
make: *** [leveldb/libleveldb.a] Error 2

I tried to bypass this by copying the Makefile from Blakecoin:
blakecoin-master/src/leveldb/Makefile
to
photon-master/src/leveldb/Makefile

But I just get other errors.

The problem is in the photon source, (and I have pushed it so many times to github and don't know why it won't arrive) the level db make file is missing , download this (the make file ) to the leveldb directory inside src

https://github.com/BlueDragon747/Blakecoin/blob/master/src/leveldb/Makefile

from that directory

sudo make libleveldb.a libmemenv.a

if someone can put a gitpull with that file in it i will merge it, i honestly don't understand why it never shows up on github ....

How do I contact BlueDragon regarding issue in the pool?
I can't set Auto payout to more then 1000...
It would be great if limit could be raised (at least for photon)

In his timezone he may be crashed out now /

I would see if he answers your question here or ask in the Blake Coin or Photon thread on cryptocointalk

I must say the merged mining is working great,

When you can mine 2 coins at the same time you know this is the future and while merged mining is done now with bitcoin

Even if you have 500 ghs what are you going to earn .01 btc a day ?

Only those who control massive hash power can really mine the merged coins with bitcoin now.

Someone above mentioned merged mining getting more popular.

I have seen a few scam type operations out there but I am not aware of ANY other coins that are currently merged mined
in this fashion other than bitcoin/namecoin/iX/iO/devcoin   

Please point me to any links or resources if I am wrong since I have never been big on pool mining and prefer to solo mine normally ......

sorry for saying this, but i don't get the whole story of merged mining
i see the photon difficulty raised up from 600 to almost 8000 now, so congrats
and i can mine photoncoin in both photon pool (http://photon1.blakecoin.com) and blake pool (http://eu3.blakecoin.com)
now, what if i want to just mine the photon in blake pool? is it possible?
and if i hash in blake pool, does my hash go for photon and blake coin in same time?
i mean i hash in there and with my hash, i can mine both coin in same time with same hash power? or the pool will separate my hash for each coin and i have less power for photon compared to photon pool?

what a question
hope you figure it out

btw, pool statistics in http://eu3.blakecoin.com just shows me the details about blakecoin, is there any way to see the photoncoin status in there too?

thanks

Good questions !

Yes, in this pool you are mining Blake Coin (the parent) and Photon (the child) at the same time.

Photon difficulty has gone up as expected.

You can still mine Photon or Blake Coin individually in a pool or solo.

But .... why not get 2 for 1 ?

Your hashpower is an expense (or investment) and everyone wants to get the most out of what they have. If you mine scrypt 1024 coins like litecoin, feathercoin, doge ect... you have to pick 1 coin to mine at a time. We all know the popularity of 'switching pools' like middlecoin or waffle pool that auto switch for you and convert to bitcoin for you. Currently you need about 5 or 6 megahash to yield about .01 btc a day. If you are using gpu's this means you need about 8 good cards at once to make $5 a day at current price levels. This does not even cover the cost of electricity.

Merged mining is the future if you think long term.

Blake Coin and Photon together is just the start.
The ability to mine up to 10 (possibly more) coins at the same time with the Blake 256 algo is possible and those coins are currently in development by others.

Development of merged solo mining is still being worked on also.

Soon more merged blake 256 pools will be available soon. Right now (less than 12 hours after launch) we only have one running and lots of people are joining the party.

I never launched Photon to 'enrich' myself. If you consider the large block award of Photon and the fact that it is now permanently going to be a lot harder to mine I think it rather obvious. I don't ask for donations on projects I am involved in development of.
My motivation for Photon was to be part of a new powerful blockchain and system that uses an algorithm (Blake 256)
which based on my research (and others) has every necessary advantage to be a worldwide alternative to bitcoins (sha 256d) blockchain. I am not saying Blake Coin is the 'bitcoin killer' --- there will never be a bitcoin killer nor would I want to see bitcoin replaced ever.  There should and will be successful alternatives for everyone in the world to use in the future. Blake Coin + Photon fit the bill perfectly. With no premined coins , no attempts to 'pump' or 'push' the coins at everyone , no outlandish claims , this project has been and will continue to be run honest and fair. I welcome anyone with experience to contribute to the future development of Photon on github. When the dust slowly clears and people wise up to the ipo/premine/ (insert new scam here) the Blake 256 blockchain is going to be running along and ready to welcome them. I am not paying anyone to advertise the project, push it into the media or ram it down the publics throat. I am confident that as Blake Coin + Photon evolve others will get involved. The results speak loudly all on their own.


From a mining standpoint the ability to use cpu's, gpu's and fpga boards to mine multiple coins at the same time is a big advantage. Even though scrypt 1024 has popular coins now (also a lot of unpopular coins and minor players including things I personally developed) .......No other coins offer you this advantage.  (except the merged mining of bitcoin, namecoin, iX coin, devcoin + iO coin) The difficulty of bitcoins blockchain makes all these really hard to mine and that assumes you own the specialized equipment you need to mine.


Finally to answer your question is your hashpower 'split' ... NO.
In the merged pool you are earning shares in every round that contribute to your Blake Coins per day and Photon per day.

You are correct the pool stats show shares of Blake Coin now only. Soon you will be able to see more stats on both.  To prove it is working as I say sign into the pool and start mining.

Then check your unconfirmed balance of each coin after a few dozen rounds.

You will find it matches up real close to what you would yield with the same hash power mining Blake Coin or Photon alone. Coming soon will be more stats it is all being 'figured out' as you said.

Many people doubted this was possible or was going to happen.

A lot of people even with experience have never even heard of merged mining or thought it was possible.

Here it is. !

Bluedragon747 the dev of Blake Coin made it happen.

Finally the network hash rate you see calculated in the rpc console for Photon is an average based on the last 120 blocks. Since difficulty adjusts faster (20 blocks) as the weekend progresses you will see Photon network hash rate climb.


Stay tuned. Thanks to all who have offered support and who have mined.
Special thanks to the exchanges who support Blake Coin and Photon.

You aint seen 'nothin' yet !

sorry for saying this, but i don't get the whole story of merged mining
i see the photon difficulty raised up from 600 to almost 8000 now, so congrats
and i can mine photoncoin in both photon pool (http://photon1.blakecoin.com) and blake pool (http://eu3.blakecoin.com)
now, what if i want to just mine the photon in blake pool? is it possible?
and if i hash in blake pool, does my hash go for photon and blake coin in same time?
i mean i hash in there and with my hash, i can mine both coin in same time with same hash power? or the pool will separate my hash for each coin and i have less power for photon compared to photon pool?

what a question
hope you figure it out

btw, pool statistics in http://eu3.blakecoin.com just shows me the details about blakecoin, is there any way to see the photoncoin status in there too?

thanks
