Mission Statement

To grow the coins adoption we have reached out beyond our friends in the crypto coin world to include team members from ufology, science, broadcasting and entertainment. These liaisons will help fuel adoption by introducing groups, industries and entire communities to the merits of joining the UFO ecosystem.

We are actively seeking partners with opportunities that further decentralization, promote open source technologies and broaden an individual’s accessibility to free market commerce world wide. The UFO Team will start posting developer bounties for new features, rewards for signing up merchants, social media campaigns and targeted airdrop promotions.

Technical Road Map and the Neoscrypt


UFO has now hard forked to use the NeoScrypt hashing algorithm in an effort to remain within the realm of GPU mining and keep away from ASIC production in the near future. NeoScrypt uses very strong elements compared to the current version of Scrypt which has already been broken by differential analysis. This affords better protection than blending different hashing solutions together. Our philosophy is that decentralization should be the main drive for the crypto protocol and thus everyone should be able the join the network and be part of it, not just the owners of expensive hardware.

The UFO network, after being updated to the latest available codebase, will add a Lightning Network allowing rapid transactions, bi-directional payment channels, atomic swaps between other cryptocurrencies as well as many other features. Post SegWit enablement, a web hosted wallet will be available with Multisig and SegWit address support and Raw Transaction tools. An overview of the development plan can be found under the roadmap section and more detailed information for current and past releases can be found in the news section on website



Neoscrypt Whitepaper

Bushstar's outstanding job brought the code up to date and secured it from vulnerabilities.

Technical Features

NeoScrypt - The newest hashing algorithm uses blended Salsa 20/20 and Chacha 20/20, Blake2s for hashing and FastKDF. Read Whitepaper.
eHRC enhanced Hash Rate Calculation - Difficulty adjustment algorithm.
Time Warp Manipulability - Will be reduced to the point where its effect is negligible
Automatic Checkpointing - This vital feature for any coin prevents transaction roll back via 51% attacks

Coin Specifications

Proof of Work (PoW)
Neoscrypt hashing algorithm. CPU and GPU mining allowed.
90 sec block time
625 coins reward per block (Halving every 400k blocks)
4 billion coins total
6 confirmations per transaction
Coin created on 2nd of January 2014



Resources


UFO Core v0.16.0


The ufo.conf is now renamed to ufocoin.conf since 0.9.0

Here is an example ufocoin.conf file:

Code:
rpcuser=ufouser
rpcpassword=6bjlvC5KKSjVyig5
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
server=0
rpcport=9888
port=9887

If you are short on nodes go to https://www.coinexchange.io/network/peers/UFO copy the addnodes and paste them in your ufocoin.conf file

MINING

Please make sure that you are running NSGMiner 0.9.3 as the previous version 0.9.2 does not work with getblocktemplate.

For solo mining, in your ufocoin.conf, set server=1. A good password should be a mixture of lowercase, uppercase and numbers - three classes of chars

NVIDIA Cards cannot be used for solo mining for the time being because the ccminer has not yet been updated to work with getblocktemplate in the newer 0.10+ codebase.
CCminer (ccminer-1.6.3-git-tpruvo) has been confirmed to work with stratum just fine though.


Miner Software


Example config for R9 280X:

Code:
nsgminer --neoscrypt -w 128 -I 13 -o http://127.0.0.1:9888 -u username -p P4V5fgq3 --no-getwork --no-stratum --verbose --text-only --coinbase-addr BuWudvgPv9ni5iZR1yqSkqiPuvtESoLzqd

--thread-concurrency, --shaders, --vectors are not used for NeoScrypt. --intensity or -I is the primary performance optimiser. May be set between 8 and 20 according to your video card's memory size. For example, -I 16 means (2 ^ 16) GPU threads each of 32768 bytes = 2,147,483,648 bytes or 2Gb. There are some configuration tweaks available in neoscrypt.cl which might deliver a little bit of additional performance.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

I've just finished compiling ufd on the Raspberry Pi and within the next hour I should of finished compiling UFO-qt on the Pi too, which will allow you to run a UFO wallet on the Raspberry Pi.
I'm not suggesting you use this to keep your coins in, but if you have a spare Raspberry Pi lying around you can run the wallet on it and as long as you give the Pi a static IP address and open up port 9887 on your router to the Pi's Ip address you can run it as a full node for UFO coin.
I will hopefully have mine online within the next couple of hours as UFO coin seems a bit light on nodes and I suggest as many other people do the same.
It only uses 5W of electricity so for a couple of cents a day and some of your download limit you can help support and secure the network too.

If anyone is interested I'm happy to post the compiled files to save you 5 hours of compiling, but if you would rather build from source happy to post how to do that too.

No problem, just finished the same thing for Feathercoin last night and noticed the lack of nodes for UFO when I went to sync it last night, so decided to do the same for UFO as I can run them both off the same Pi, so other than eating up some of my download limit it costs me nothing extra to run it

Just started up a full node for UFO, will leave it running overnight to see how it goes.
Only running UFOD, not UFO-qt to save system resources

Hi Chaps and chappets! I have opened up one our servers on 9887 so feel to use that as an "addnode=37.59.85.19"

Thanks for mining with us!

It is quiet but it is actively in development.
Has the same Dev as Feathercoin.
Also this new thread was only started a day or so ago

Folks, we can get on coins-e for voting but we need a bunch of nodes!

Big thanks to NutNut for making his node public and eventually got banned by bitcointalk staff from posting on the forums for that for a couple of days! So if you would like to open a public node pm me and I will update the OP
