Can someone help me find that great illustration posted some weeks ago with a sunny forest when mining Burst and POW-mining with environmental problems and smog? Can't remember who did it.

Thanks!

any1 know when http://pool.burstcoin.it will come back, is down since yesterday night Sad and im unable to find any info, all i have found is that they will inyect some burst to the pool, but as i sayd thats was more than 18 hours agoo.

As far as I know they had an issue and they're currently trying to fix it.
No ETA thou.
You may consider switching to another pool in the meanwhile.

ohh ty for your reply, yes i will go to another pool in the meanwhile.

Yes, as Nevril said we are having network problems and we are working to fix.
I really apologise for the downtime

ok, there is np, bad things happends Wink btw where did you get that info? i mean where "Nevril" or any pool owners sayd it? because i read this thread and i cant find nothing.

Has there been any work on the development environment for AT?  The spec at CIYAM seems very low-level.

Is a crypto API going to be added to it?  Doing crypto using the AT instructions would be very expensive.

How does the AT code interact with reward assignment?  Vitalik Buterin thought up a mining contract where the terms of mining would be very enticing, and would lock participants' coin into the contract using a heavy penalty once the mining pool controlled more than 50% of the hashing power, giving the controller of the contract the power to double spend.  Such a malicious arrangement could be simplified if AT code can automatically set reward assignment.

It would be great to see the source code for the AT branch of burstcoin.  Is it available anywhere?

Yeah, it is indeed assembly code that will be working initially, just yesterday started working on trying to get a simple compiler written.. anyone want to help, let me know.

That being said, assembly isn't impossible to write on your own. and you get control of the program  and can write it very efficiently, which might be important to some when posting by the instruction.

Dev had plans to figure out reward assignments over weekend as previously every instruction was being considered equal. You want to discuss further with him, he might appreciate it.

But it's important from a security standpoint that ATs are written in assembly in the core code because that makes it easier to catch bugs. If we build a higher level language on that can compiler down to assembly, that's ideal and intentional.

One other thing, vbecas and probably me (I'd want to be paid), maybe others, would be willing write ATs/help people learn if they need help getting started.

Burst is POC, not POS.


"Burst is a fork of NXT with PoS removed to make way for Proof-of-Capacity. Burst has all the features of a 2nd Gen crypto-currency with it's own added benefits."

What do u mean by "dangerous" ? If u mean reducing life span of HDD is "dangerous" , every mining operation is "dangerous" because every single piece of hardware have reduce life span running 24/7 , no matter its ASIC or GPU or HDD , all mining operation are "dangerous" by nature.

It's not more dangerous than working on your PC.

Nope, Burst is a Nxt fork.. big difference, burst actually does a few things Nxt can't do.  And considering all the issues with POS, Proof of Capacity is a pretty stable

Ah ok thank you

Not that much...  Google did an in-depth study on hard drive failure rates.  Usage barely plays a part when it comes to failure rates:
http://static.googleusercontent.com/media/research.google.com/en/us/archive/disk_failures.pdf

During the first 6 months of owning a hard drive, heavy usage could increase the odds of failure but after that.. it's negligible. And if your drive fails during the first 6 months.. it was probably going to fail fairly soon anyway, in my opinion.. after all it probably means there is a manufacturing problem or it was tossed around too much during shipping or something.

Not to mention that though Burst initially heavily uses your hard drive for plotting, after that, I'd arguably consider it low usage.. every 4 minutes you read a few MB from it, and you don't need to write back to it, which isn't too bad.  And it's not like it's constantly reading and writing.

Glad to see that you are thinking about the coin, happy to answer any questions you might have.

For the moment the way to create AT programs is writing AT machine code or using the https://github.com/BurstProject/ATAssembler burstdev made.

There are many hash functions defined in the API section of the AT ( md5, sha256, ripemd160) you can use. Check the API specification for all the API calls an AT program can make ( http://ciyam.org/at/at_api.html ).

I am not sure I totally understood your question about reward assignment. ATs are consuming fees from running op codes and calling API functions. The fees goes to the "forger" of the block.

The code will be available very soon.
