couldn't believe that the price is this low.

i see BBR now have stratum, will christian publish his miner as he once said ?

He posted a followup about it in the cudaminer/ccminer thread.  Someone might pop over there and ask him to post an update here.  I haven't been keeping up on that thread lately, so that might have already happened, or there might be more information there.

Crypto_Zoidberg, how private is submiting alias to blockchain when daemon is running with --hide-my-port switch while mining? Is IP address of block finder recorded by the network?

WTF... Network hashrate 3.28 GH/s, i found only two pools, one with around 5.45 MH/s the second with around 2.25 MH/s... someone is solo mining really hard or there is other bigger pools?

It's a mix of a few big solo miners and some private pools.  I still solo mine at home on 5 machines, for example - I get a block every other day or so.  You don't have to be huge to solo BBR still.

Not sure if it's still happening, but for a while, some of the big EC2 miners would run their own pool inside EC2 to keep the bandwidth charges down and latency low.

If you've got more than about 1-2MH/s, I'd solo, but that's just me.

Mined with EC2 for a couple of days. How do people get the economics to work? Far cheaper (x4) to just buy off the exchange... unless I'm missing something  Huh

The recent changes only effect cpuminer-multi. We are fixing a few bugs and then will be able to release the Windows version.

Here is one way to solo mine on windows:

Code:
boolbd --start-mining <BBR-ADDRESS> --mining-threads <THREADS>

You can also start the miner from simplewallet. Type 'help' in simplewallet to get list of commands.

all depends on the efficiency of your software, CPU + GPU.

But we're about to downsize our operation as well, we've hit rock bottom concerning the profitability.

Can this coin be gpu mined? I haven't seen a miner... gpu might be viable (depending on hashrate).

Tiny update that's nowhere near as cool as the mining scratchpad stuff:

I've updated the Go exchange bindings to handle the crypto signing aspects of Poloniex, so it can now do authenticated tradingApi queries.  I only added one for getting balances, but the rest will follow shortly.  So - one can now automatically query ones BBR wallet balance, exchange balance, send coins to the exchange (and by tomorrow, transfer them back out to your wallet).

Slowly slowly trying to knock down the barriers to accepting Boolberry as payments. Smiley


it seems that until i was "inside" cpuminer i miss something really interesting!
need to read more about this Shocked

Hi all,

I'm trying to make sure I properly understand the block reward structure for BBR, so please correct me if I'm wrong. The formula is easy enough to find:
Code:
uint64_t base_reward = (EMISSION_SUPPLY - already_generated_coins) >> EMISSION_CURVE_CHARACTER;
But then when I dig deeper, what we're really saying is the reward is:
Code:
uint64_t base_reward = ((2^64 -1) * 0.99) - already_generated_coins) >> 20;
Okay, fine... but WTF value is used for already_generated_coins? I can look around online and see that currently there are around 657,687 BBR at the time of writing, but obviously we're not just using that number in the formula. There has to be a multiplier...
Code:
EMISSION_SUPPLY ~= 18262276632972456099 >> 20 ~= 17416264183971
That looks like the proper base coin reward for block 0, but with 12 digits that should be to the right of the decimal point. So if I take the current number of "real" coins (as a user would think about them), multiply by a trillion (1,000,000,000,000), subtract that from 18262276632972456099, divide by 2^20 (shift right 20 bits), and finally divide by 1 trillion, I get the base block reward?

Or to simplify, I can use 18262277 as the maximum number of coins and forget about the multiplying by 1 trillion. Thus the base reward is approximately:
Code:
(18262277 - [Current BBR Supply]) / 1048576 = [Reward]
The reward will scale slightly for larger blocks (above the median size), but that should only be the case on blocks with multiple transactions, so as a baseline estimate the above formula would be sufficient, right? So when I plug in 657,855 as the current supply, I end up with 16.789 as the reward, which is reasonably close the the actual current block reward of 16.793937 BBR. I'm not quite sure why I appear to be off by 0.004 BBR, though; if anyone wants to fix that small error and tell me why, that would be great. :-)

Sorry for late response.
Your calculation seems to be correct. Note that block reward for each block is truncated to remove dust:
Code:
   base_reward = base_reward - base_reward%DEFAULT_DUST_THRESHOLD

Also, 1% of emission is reserved for team bounty, it paid in each 720s(once a day) block according to votes(1% of day reward is a maximum).
Feel free to ask if you have questions.

Crypto_Zoidberg, how private is submiting alias to blockchain when daemon is running with --hide-my-port switch while mining? Is IP address of block finder recorded by the network?

--hide-my-port parameter actually is not protect your privacy at all. The only thing is doing by this parameter is prevent announce your daemon's listening port - that means that even if you connected via external ip, you won't receive incoming connections and your ip won't get into network peerlists.

Talking about aliases privacy we touching a big question of network layer anonymity.

When you sending any information to the network - transactions or blocks - there are always a risk that somewhere your ip address will be fixed. The network could be full of injected agents that was connected only in monitoring purposes (and i believe bitcoin network is well-monitored ).

So, since alias is sending with block it could be related with ip that sent the block to the network (in case of that ip is catched). But is this information is relevant?
Finding a block is not easy even now, so i guess alias registration will be selling as service in close future, and  even if pool's ip will be catched - it still doesn't say anything about alias owner.

Wow, a lot of great dev work going on with boolberry! I need to upgrade my wallet, but it doesn't look as easy as a simple file replace this time. The version I downloaded from http://boolberry.com/downloads.html has a lot more files than the original boolberry I downloaded 4 weeks agao or so.

Are there any upgrade tutorials? The original version didn't have all thoe dll files, what do they do?

I have coins in my old wallet, and coins I want to get off of poloniex.
thanks
