Anyone know who we get a hold of to talk about the official pool? The first day, I had wayyyy less avg hashrate (It being at like 704 kh), but I made wayyy more btcd with the lower hashrate than I did the second day with a higher hashrate (it was at an avg of 4.4 mh the second day). I thought it was scamming me, so I quit mining on it and was waiting for the last of my unconfirmed shares to come through and see what they paid me, but now my 300k+ shares are gone and it shows nothing at all for the previous shifts I worked. Someone please help. Thank you for your time Smiley

Edit: If someone could point me in the direction of a working multipool for this coin, as it seems that neither of the two pool on the main page of this thread are working right for me, it would be greatly appreciated Smiley

I'm on vacation, but email btcdinfo at xpool.ca with your miner address and I'll check.

So, just to be clear, your complaint is that the first day your hash rate was lower than it should, but you made way more BTCD then you thought you would? Then the next day was proper hash rate but less than you made the one shift prior? then you quit mining? What do you suppose the average would be??

2 shifts have no real bearing on anything. Markets go up and down and so will your payments.

A number of ill performing coins were removed so sounds like your shares were from those coins. Nothing to be done about that.

Cheers!

Well, the first day, with an avg hashrate of 704kh, I made .21 btcd. The second day, with an avg hashrate of 4.4mh, I made .075 btcd. So i stopped mining to see what it would pay out with just the 300k+ shares I had left on the site, but when I type in my addy on the site, it looks like I've never mined there at all now, meaning that it doesn't even show my previous shifts that were paid out anymore. I was mining with the x11 algo btw

All history is preserved. You can see from my miner stats:

http://btcd.xpool.ca/miner?worker=RDTVREbjF5JeyteiHd9Q6Q5hJRgEnuwrkV

Goes back to July 19th. When did you mine?

 I started mining literally like 2-3 days ago. And it no longer shows an option for 'My Miner', just 'My Shifts'.

Edit, this is mine http://btcd.xpool.ca/miner?worker=%20RDPaPLFFUa84RQpEq5MyZpvCrzcHi3MVsa

That's not a proper URL. Here is the correct address:

http://btcd.xpool.ca/miner?worker=RDPaPLFFUa84RQpEq5MyZpvCrzcHi3MVsa

Your cut/paste must have grabbed extras

Yeah I noticed yours was different, so I took out that %20 in front of my addy and it's showing up now, but do those payouts look right to you?

Yeha, someone threw a large amount of hashrate at the pool so you're proportions were drastically reduced along with conspiracycoin being a problem again for a few hours.

It should all even itself out. The thing is, to get consistency you need to go 100% for 3-4 shifts.

Ok cool, well if everything looks copasetic to you, then I will just continue mining on the site, sorry for any troubles I may have caused for your vacation. Also, can I use my btc block errupters on the sha-256 side? lol Cheesy

OK, got a professional tech writer to make my draft much better, also possible graphic artist for making it easier to understand.
Also reached out to a math professor to hopefully make some precise mathematical models

Now, to debug the basic Teleport function!

I got 95% code complete before exhaustion, but this is just the Teleport in isolation. telepods, transporter, etc.

So still long ways to go, however I still stick to my 2 week estimate

It seems that copies of my darkpaper draft is maybe affecting the market
For competitive reasons, I dont want to publish yet, but if any BTCD regular wants to see current draft, just PM me
This way you can read it for yourself
OK, got a professional tech writer to make my draft much better, also possible graphic artist for making it easier to understand.
Also reached out to a math professor to hopefully make some precise mathematical models

Now, to debug the basic Teleport function!

I got 95% code complete before exhaustion, but this is just the Teleport in isolation. telepods, transporter, etc.

So still long ways to go, however I still stick to my 2 week estimate

James

Nice updates and hard work you guys are doing. Looking forward to the up coming wallet and improvements.
We need a QT GUI dev to add the Teleport buttons. Without QT dev, the first Teleport wallet will be command line.
Maybe we can have a localhost webpage though

After writing draft darkpaper today, I realize that it is best to use standard tx amounts

To avoid pesky fractions, I am thinking to make 1 BTCD the smallest increment that can be Teleported
This can always be changed later as BTCD grows in value

To cover txfee erosion of telepods, we need to setup a faucet for special 0.1 BTC telepods, that will be good for quite a few tx

So, I think telepods of the following denominations would be enough:
1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 500, 1000

Though a sequence like:
1, 3, 9, 27, 81, 243, 749 might allow for less telepods to match up to totals. Not sure and no time to run simulations to find the optimal spanning set.

These are just the individual denominations, any user started Teleport will automatically split things up, so I guess I am just talking to myself about this. At least it makes it clearer in my mind.

I will also default things to have approx 10 minute time to complete Teleport. Actual time will be randomized to reduce correlations. The reason is that the faster you go, the more information is leaked. Not much, but I think it is better to limit any leakage of info and 10 minutes is still one BTC block, so we lose nothing in speed. For people that are in no hurry and want the most privacy, they could set the timeframe higher like hourly or even daily. Allowing faster should only be allowed after overall Teleport activity is big enough. Maybe best is to have an overall monitoring of activity levels and only allow teleports after a threshold is achieved. Or simpler is to make updates to adapt to the existing activity levels.

Sorry to ramble, these are very esoteric but potentially critical issues and it helps me to think through when I write it

By any chance, anybody able to do code review? It is in C and I think for any privacy solution it is important to get external honest feedback. This will allow to fix any weaknesses in the algos (if there are any)

Also, it would be good to have it verified that the C code matches the darkpaper

I want to be very thorough about all this as we are talking about big responsibility and while I am usually right, I do make occasional mistakes, so best to make sure I didnt make one in any place important! (or anywhere at all)

I think anybody to review the code should get compensated and in a currency other than BTCD. That way if they find a flaw, they wont care about disclosing, otherwise they might not tell what they find for fear of hurting their payment. All this will probably take longer than two weeks, but in my experience it takes a long time to arrange for things like this, so the sooner we start, the better.

James

P.S. Notice how open this process is? This is critical for any anon tech! Avoid any anon crypto (or any crypto) that is not open with how it actually works!!

I think it is important for potential code reviewers to disclose their credentials and justify why they are qualified to perform a code review of this nature.  I'm a C/C++ dev with 15 years experience but I doubt I am smart enough to understand the code that James is writing Smiley  So I won't apply.

I try to write simple C code!
Please reconsider. Any one elses eyes on this is better than just me. I will send you draft dark paper and then once you understand what I am trying to implement, you can start looking at the code. the privacyServer stuff is already in the:
https://github.com/jl777/pNXT/blob/master/NXTservices/orders.h file, sendmessage is the key function and also the packets.h file that does most of the onion stuff.

If you cant understand my code, then maybe it is too complicated and that leads to bugs.
Any questions, you can just post here. We need this to be solid and the code is out there for the bad guys to look at (and they probably are!) so we need to do our best to find any flaws.

OK?

Darkpaper with nice graphics
Code review(s) to verify source code matches darkpaper
University professors to verify math in Darkpaper

->

Top 10 coinmarketcap and not just on pump, but as a long time resident!

This is most important thing we can do for BTCD

If anybody knows college professors we can hire, lets do it. We also need an easy to understand explanation so Teleport is not seen as mysterious magic, but as verified (multiple ways) method to achieve privacy. So I see a fully detailed black paper with university professor confirmation of important assumptions and an overview like https://cryptonote.org/inside/ that is accessible to a lot more people

I have spent last 6 months on this problem, for me that is a long time for one problem to stay unsolved. I believe Teleport solution is close to what is possible to be achieved, while also not bloating blockchain and much reduced risk of crypto algos being solved by Quantum Computers from the future. By combining practical precautions with state of the art encryption and rather clever (if I say so myself) approach to drastically minimize attack vectors, Teleport represents a real world solution available in the near term.

But that is just my rambling. Until we get independent unbiased smart guys to confirm this, maybe I have missed some things?

What bothers me is that due to massive rise in DRK, there are so many coins out there trying just catch a pump. Some have some very fancy marketing materials, maybe some actually have viable solutions against http://people.csail.mit.edu/spillai/data/papers/bitcoin-transaction-graph-analysis.pdf
I am not making fancy website but rather making practical solution to maximize privacy in a hostile environment.

Now those are some pretty sophisticated attacks. I spend many months thinking about privacy against such things. My feeling is that it is important not to have a permanent record. Remember the blockchain is forever, so if not this year, in 5 years when computers are much faster, new techniques become available to deanonymize. So any "solution" where everything is on the blockchain is forever exposed to the future attackers with future computers and future analysis techniques.

Any anon coin that is closed source for any reason is a danger. A danger to anybody that uses it and a danger to anybody's finances to anybody that buys it. It takes more than one day to properly assess anon tech. So, just because one day the source is revealed, that doesnt change much, until it is reviewed and approved by competent people.

https://github.com/jl777/pNXT is my work in progress, usually only a day or two behind the latest version.

Now, I dont want to say that coinjoin tech is worthless, it is certainly better than nothing, but lets all agree that anything that leaves a permanent trail is at best "personal level" privacy. Good for not letting Aunt Bertha know how much money you have, but certainly not "corporate level" privacy. Where millions of dollars are at stake and you cannot assume they wont just allocate a few supercomputers to unravel the mixing. Read the PDF file link if you doubt this.

Cryptonote tech is much better. It has been open source and the ring signatures is a method I approve of. I even based pNXTd on Boolberry. However, cryptonote tech is a fixed level of privacy. You cant really increase the number of signature in the ring dramatically. Maybe 10, but 100? 1000? Not practical, since the blockchain is already noticeably gigantic for XMR and after such a short time without that much use. What will happen if tens of thousands of people use it? Blockchain meltdown? Not sure, so I had to develop something without any blockchain bloat.

Then there is the rumored zerocash (improvement on zerocoin), but this is by academics and is the software field tested? Matt Green, a guy much smarter than me, but maybe I write more C code that he does? So, there are some issues of code stability for totally new code and then the zero knowlege proofs method is a brilliant way to solve the privacy and I cant wait to see the source code. Maybe I assimilate zerocash into BTCD? In any case, without privacyServers, the weakest link is not the anon algo, but simply IP correlation leakage. For those who jump up and say "Tor" http://www.macgasm.net/2014/07/30/tor-network-breached-ip-isnt-safe-may-think/
Tor is an automatic red flag, just using it and you attract attention. Not to mention the large effort being made to crack it. Also, I always thought of the zerocoin zeroknowledge technique as a way to teleport funds and in a way this has been one of my goals, to achieve this de-linkage of funds transfer, while still having a blockchain to verify funds and prevent double-spending.

Privacy is not just about the perfect anon algorithm, it needs to be an entire system designed from the ground up for privacy, like privacyServers! Also, think about this, Teleport is the only privacy solution that can be applied to other coins. If you still like DRK for some reason, you can simply Teleport it and gain the benefits of both. Or Teleport XMR or BBR, etc. Regardless of who "wins" the anon race, BTCD will be there, either as the outright winner or making other top coins more private. Can any other solution make bitcoin itself more private?

Not that I know of.

BTCD in Top 10 Coinmarketcap is what I predicted after $1 million marketcap

Now you know why. Free Teleporting for BTCD itself and revenue sharing from the fees charged for teleporting other coins (and also some revenue sharing from InstantDEX and also tradebots and also Privatebet and also ...)
