Long Live the Great Clam.

Sometimes people complain that they've been staking for a long time and not got any stakes yet.

Since I made the new Just-Dice staking wallet I've been watching to see how it performs, staking wise.

I found there's huge variance. I made around 13000 outputs of size 100 CLAMs, and set them to split into 25 CLAM outputs when they stake.

Some outputs have staked incredibly well. This one staked 5 times in 8 days, despite only being worth 26 to 30 CLAMs for most of that time:

Quote
84d121      -> 100 CLAM   1044120 (2016-06-21 22:14:24)
cbdfb7  100 ->  26 CLAM   1045413 (2016-06-22 18:53:20)
a799ea   26 ->  27 CLAM   1050053 (2016-06-26 00:42:40)
c6709f   27 ->  28 CLAM   1050991 (2016-06-26 16:32:00)
00d648   28 ->  29 CLAM   1052089 (2016-06-27 11:02:40)
e58636   29 ->  30 CLAM   1054628 (2016-06-29 05:42:24)

Whereas none of the 146 inputs to 462d2e worth a total of 14600 CLAMs staked at all in 9 days. I sent them all back to the hot wallet to top it up after a few large withdrawals.

Could it be the lottery all over again with developers gaming the system?

Seems strange and a possible red flag again.

I remember last time the chart looked similarly weird, and presstab commented saying he should fix it. Smiley


Alright alright, enough reminders finally prompted me to patch that up for you.

Long Live the Great Clam.

Sometimes people complain that they've been staking for a long time and not got any stakes yet.


I've noticed when staking, some days in a row I get none.  Other days I get more, and seems to make up for the days I got none.

I think its just variance.

I always think of long term staking in terms of the law of large numbers.

Needs more features, like the ability to create your own coin ( https://www.ethereum.org/token the site is a bit outdated, it is possible with a mouse click in the latest GUI) and of course, smart contracts.

Too much bloat,  a currency should just be a currency.  And we don't need everyone making "teletubby" / chucky cheese coins, tokens.

You can probably fix it by shutting down the wallet and restarting it.

But I've updated the bootstrap too, at the usual URL.

No, it can't be the developers. The behavior I'm seeing is entirely on the JD staking wallet, which the developers don't have access to.

All we're seeing is variance in action. I have thousands of outputs staking. Each output expects to stake about once every 40 days. Of those thousands, some are bound to be unusually lucky.

As it happens, I now have 4 outputs that have staked 5 times each, not just one of them as before, but none that has staked 6 times yet:

You are likely best served with a restart, as dooglus has suggested. 
 
For those with initial-sync problems, the bootstrap is likely still the best solution. 
 
In the very near future there will be an update coming dealing specifically with the network. 
 
The code is currently pulling data via requests in a duplicitous manner as well as improperly handling inv messages from older code. 
Combine that with our 'jump backwards' misbehavior code and the client is Long overdue for better net code.

I wonder if the size of the staking wallet affects the probability of staking.  Although POS doesn't require as much work as POW, there is still hashing going on for each input.  For smaller wallets this time is small . However for a large wallet or wallets with lots of tiny inputs, then I assume clam client does the hashes in a serial fashion which cause the 1st inputs to have a higher probability to stake vs ones which happen later in time.

The JD staking wallet does often have two outputs which are able to stake at the same time, and so only the first of them gets to stake.

This one staked 5 times in 8 days, despite only being worth 26 to 30 CLAMs for most of that time:

That one recently staked again, for 6 stakes in 17 days: (edit: 7 stakes in 19 days!)

Quote
84d121      -> 100 CLAM   1044120 (2016-06-21 22:14:24)
cbdfb7  100 ->  26 CLAM   1045413 (2016-06-22 18:53:20)
a799ea   26 ->  27 CLAM   1050053 (2016-06-26 00:42:40)
c6709f   27 ->  28 CLAM   1050991 (2016-06-26 16:32:00)
00d648   28 ->  29 CLAM   1052089 (2016-06-27 11:02:40)
e58636   29 ->  30 CLAM   1054628 (2016-06-29 05:42:24)
4170b5   30 ->  31 CLAM   1067683 (2016-07-08 09:20:16)
60ca71   31 ->  32 CLAM   1070634 (2016-07-10 10:57:52)

Whereas previously we would expect one of the thousands of outputs to be lucky, it's kind of surprising that the one which was previously the luckiest staked again in just 9 days when we would expect it to take around 33 days (edit: and then it staked again, just 2 days later!).

I added some code to spit out the txid and value of every 1000th output as it's checking for staking to see what order it checks in:

>The JD staking wallet does often have two outputs which are able to stake at the same time, and so only the first of them gets to stake.

It may be so, but I was more curious about the the actual hashing events being serialized.  Lets say a a wallet had 1 million inputs, then how long would it take hash all 1 million inputs? My guess is the first 1/2 million would have a greater probability to stake and not orphaned then then last 1/2 million just due to the time it takes to do hashing. 

Doesn't the 1st person who has a valid stake and propagates over the network win?

Oh, yes. If it takes you more than 16 seconds to check all your outputs then you're going to be missing out of some stakes. I am able to check about 15k outputs per second, and have around 46k outputs attempting to stake at any given time, so it takes 3 or 4 seconds to check for stakes. You wouldn't want to have a million outputs unless you had a significantly faster staking machine. You would want to combine some of those outputs into a more manageable set.

I'm not sure what happens if one of your peers sends you a block while you are working through your outputs. Maybe you stop working and use the peer's block, or maybe you keep working hoping to find an output of your own which can compete with the peer's block.

This to me is the difference.  A single user may finish hashing their wallet in under a millisecond vs JD jumbo wallet which takes 3-4 secs.  A 4 second head start would allow a valid stake to completely update the entire network me thinks.  It might make sense for client continues to look for valid stakes for a few 100 milliseconds because the time to propagating a valid stake is kind of variable, but after that it seems like it would be a wasted effort.  I do not have the knowledge to read code to know how clam works.
