Update on Release Phoenix

Release Phoenix is a go!

I've successfully competed testing of:

1. New PoW
2. Block time switch to 4 minutes
3. Difficulty transition adjustment (prevents blocks from being mined too fast after switching to faster PoW)

I will be announcing a test release shortly, so people can try building and running on your own systems (it is set up to run separately from the main network).

Assuming no problems with the test release I will then push out a new general release with the hard fork set at some block in the future and a few other minor improvements.

Sorry for such an obvious/newbie question... but I have been mining AEON on minergate for a while... and have almost 300 coins stacked up,
will I still be able to trade them once AEON is back on an exchange?

Yes your coins are still good, assuming minergate is still around. You might want to try to set up your own wallet and move your coins off when you get a chance. Never a particularly good idea of entrust your coins to a third party.

Thx! Will wait for the new wallet release... also send a few coins to dev fund(for what it's worth)

Release Phoenix standalone test (PLEASE TEST!)

I have created a standalone test setup for the upcoming release Phoenix. Please test and report any issues.

Instructions:

Quote
git clone git://github.com/iamsmooth/aeon aeon-hf1-test
cd aeon-hf1-test
git checkout -b hf1-test origin/hf1-test
make

(you will get some errors with unit tests I haven't fixed yet, but you can ignore them)

cd build/release/src
./aeond --log-level=1
start_mining ADDRESS  <-- you can use any valid address (e.g. donation address), this doesn't mine any real coins
show_hr

(You do not need to connect to a network for this test so please ignore any messages about not connecting to seed nodes.)

Here's where the magic happens. You will see blocks being mined with a block target of 1 second, with the difficulty converging to your hash rate (eventually, but it usually gets pretty close within 5-10 blocks). Since you aren't actually sending any blocks to the network the 1 second block time causes no problems.

Once you get to block 1000 (about 15 minutes), it will switch over the to new PoW and a block target of 4 seconds. At this point you should see the difficulty increase by a factor of 8, your hash rate double (approximately -- depends on hardware), and of course the rate of blocks being created should slow down noticeably.

The added factor of 2 in difficulty is to compensate for the new PoW being roughly twice as fast. That transition is phased out over the next few hundred blocks at which point it is completely running on the new parameters and should continue to produce blocks with a target of 4 seconds.

This test version uses a data directory called .aeone (Linux) or AEONE (Windows) in the usual locations. Once you are done with testing you can delete that.

Since it doesn't download a blockchain or create much of a blockchain, you don't need a lot of memory or disk space for this test.

Please report any problems.

If none, I will reconfigure for the live network and create a new release!

cryptrol or whoever, if you are able to create and upload a Windows build of this, I would really appreciate it. I'd like to get testing done on as many platforms as possible before releasing it to the live network.

Works for me. Hash rate went up about 3.5 times, dififculty 10 times. Everything else seems fine.

Done, ubuntu 15.04 [edit] intel Penryn/Harpertown (no aes instructions) / 4gb of ram

exactly happened

#1000: diff 24 --> ~170-200   hashrate: 23.8-->52.4

no problems at first sight.

There is no exchange, only OTC trading. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1012944

I would like to push getting back onto exchanges once the latest software updates are done and I have seed nodes set up to restore normal service (i.e. people can actually download and run the software without assistance which is not the case now).

I've placed an order for a dedicated seed node in a data center to be paid out of my pocket for now (possibly the donations fund can cover the cost later).

These days it's very rare thing to see dev as dedicated as you.

Minimum mining reward

When created this coin was a clone/fork of Monero. At that time Monero did not have code implementing the minimum reward, although that was always part of the Monero specification (as being <1% inflation per year) and has recently been added to the code (though will not have any effect for approximately eight years).

As currently described, the mining rewards of this coin will decline quickly to a negligible level and will eventually go to actual zero. I believe this is unsound for any decentralized PoW coin, but also especially unsound for a coin without a fixed maximum blocksize, and my intent is to bring the structure fully back in line with Monero by merging the code for the minimum mining reward.

This arguably represents a small change in the specifications (though in some sense not since there is no divergence yet and won't be for several years), and one which will make the coin less deflationary or possibly somewhat inflationary. Actually being inflationary is in fact quite unlikely in practice since lost coins will likely exceed that rate of new coins in the final "minimum reward" state (especially with the pruning of stale outputs).

If there are strong objections to making this change, I will have to consider leaving the code alone and making a new fork instead.

What's the purpose of changing PoW?

To make it faster to verify and more efficient on mobile and mainstream (not high end) desktop CPUs. See roadmap
