I cant wait for the blockchain to finish downloading....I downloaded the blockchain from the site with the node adding information but the wallet hated it and wouldnt even load. So now I wait.....

The blockchain download / zip on the gapcoin.club website is not a bootstrap, so you have to unzip it and then copy it to the correct folder for your respective operation system.

I will endeavour to upload a newer version, however the existing one works just fine. I've tested it on windows and linux.

I can try again. I unzipped and copied/pasted. Then the wallet just says loading chain and sits there and does nothing. I probably missed something. I'll try again when I get home from work.

Where did you find that blockchain and how big is it?

It's older and not very large.

There is currently no pool. You can mine in the wallet like original BTC using only CPU power and actually find blocks !

Nodes are miners.

Awesome. So I just do the "setgenerate true"? I have played with it and used the "fast" cpu miner in the OP and it appears to be working. But just using the wallet would suit me fine.

Indeed. Instructions are on the windows wallet page at gapcoin.club

Note that the Rev2 Gapcoin wallet released by J0nn9 actually already includes the Modded CPU-Minerby dcct.

It is also slightly more efficient to mine in the wallet instead of using RPC.

Contained within the downloads here ...

Which is a collection of the 'latest' / last releases.

J0nn9's GPU miner Source Code is also on Github here ...

Your most welcome! and good luck with finding your first Gapcoin block! The way the real Satoshi Nakamoto envisioned in the original Bitcoin whitepaper!

Although, with seemingly new interest in Gapcoin it may not be long before a mining pool (or two) appear, perhaps ?

Hopefully we can smash a new world record prime gap (again) soon. Who knows ?

I was toying around with some primecoin gpu miners to see if they might work. No luck. I can’t get the gapcoin gpu miner to work, perhaps my 7950 gpu is too old. I’d be happy to try to build a pool if my hardware is up to par. I’m not smart enough to make a miner I don’t think. I’ve done plc programming and such.

Sorry you think that.

Gapcoin is a genuine math altcoin started in 2014, unfortunately the project has largely gone unnoticed and ignored for a variety of reasons.

Everything has to start somewhere, even Bitcoin ...

- https://web.archive.org/web/20090303195936/http://bitcoin.org/

...

- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prime_gap

"As of December 2017, the largest known merit value and first with merit over 40, as discovered by the Gapcoin network, is 41.93878373 with the 87-digit prime 2937032340680225901587237661044194634257090755748117620985887982178957288586767 28143227. The prime gap between it and the next prime is 8350."

unfortunately the project has largely gone unnoticed and ignored for a variety of reasons.
Why is that? I know of primecoin but don't think I ever heard of this one before.

Numerous reasons, perhaps ...

Cryptocurrency in general makes some folks glaze over, let alone complex mathematics.

Most people probably don't realize (or care) that this coin does what it says on the tin (although we could still use peer review).

The original developer no longer being with us became a sticking point, although it is certainly possible to move forward.

Gapcoin was launched almost during peek altcoin season and thus interest was somewhat fleeting to other crypto's along with the hash power.

We have been delisted from exchanges without any real reason other than a lack of trading volume and development.

ICO's and scam projects have been seemingly more attractive to 'investors'. Gapcoin has seen so many other projects come and go from this space and remains incredibly resilient none the less.

In theory, as more altcoins fail, Gapcoin should eventually become acknowledged. Both as a great alternative cryptocurrency and a work of mathematical / blockchain genius.

Various universities and colleges have been seen running the Gapcoin blockchain, mainly to extrapolate results.

...

The way the Logarithmic Coin Issuance dovetails with the blockchain is actually the most impressive part, economically speaking.

It basically means that slightly more coins go into circulation with more hash power being added to the network. Which remains an incentive. Hence;

Cap: about 10 - 30 million GAP
Difficulty adjusts every block and increases logarithmically (it will probably take years to get to 50)

- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logarithmic_spiral

In terms of monetary value each block contains both the block reward and the value of the prime gap discovered in the block. This obviously increases and decreases with the hashing power. I've been in Bitcoin on and off from the very start and Gapcoin is a very difficult concept to explain ...

Gapcoin is basically Bitcoin, with some fundamental laws of nature built in.

In terms of finding prime gaps against the network difficulty, it almost functions like a spiral or a helix ...

- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helix



seashell spiral ...



If we imagine the blockchain running through the centre of the spiral, increasing hashpower moves us further from the middle to discover larger prime gaps.

- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_logarithm

- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irrational_number

- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio

...

The entire design is vastly superior to both primecoin and riecoin.

It is currently unknown if any upper bounds in terms of mining for prime gaps with Gapcoin might exist, because we don't know what the largest prime gap is ... However, fixed variables in the source code (accepted under consensus) are unlikely to cause any issues in the future with continuing to utilize Gapcoin as a cryptocurrency, in this regard. It's almost akin to the assumption that quantum computers will 'break' Bitcoin etc.,

Well said. I love math, always have. I have a tendency to lean towards coins such as this. Plus folding@home as well. I'm actually mining gapcoin and primecoin at the moment - I'll be more than happy to point my GPU rigs to gapcoin once a GPU miner is released that is stable.

Thanks for all the info. Is there any actual use for "gaps". i.e. having a record of all of them etc. I couldn't find any "tangible" use. I like coins that actually provide something, especially when I can mine with just an old computer. 3 blocks now so that's fun.

The original developer no longer being with us became a sticking point, although it is certainly possible to move forward.
That almost always ends up killing a coin. People want a "leader", especially for others to do everything for them while they sit back and make money while crying about how nothing is happening.

Gapcoin was launched almost during peek altcoin season
That may be why I missed it. So many coming out it was hard to keep track of them all.

We have been delisted from exchanges without any real reason other than a lack of trading volume and development.

Yep. Just goes to show people are only here to make money.
