Then Danila launches a botnet for GPUs.
you mean Ipominer ? (should be obvious by now, also botnet are still illegal,may-be reporting to the authority could help at some point)
lets assume that people having gpu's in their computer would notice  Grin

Can someone please post the update news here as I seem to always have difficulties getting the official page to load.

Thanks
Vertans,

Since my last blog post, a botnet has started mining on the network and is taking up a large portion of the mining power (easily over 50%). As a result we have decided to hard fork the network to a refactored version of Lyra2RE with new parameters and different padding algorithms. Our current experimental changes have produced at least a 5x ratio of GPU to CPU hashrate. We hope with additional changes and optimisation we can further increase this ratio in order to nullify the botnet. I imagine the fork itself will occur some time in August after the wallet has been updated and new miners have been written.

The new test coin is effectively ready for release but is currently on hiatus due to our efforts in dealing with the botnet. It will be released shortly after the hard fork has occurred and the network has stabilised. It makes sense to hard fork Vertcoin first and then release the new coin so that we only have to fork one network rather than two. The coin itself will act as a testbed for future Vertcoin features and updates with more regular wallet releases. Most future changes will first be made to the new coin before being merged into Vertcoin itself once we have determined they are stable. This will allow us to be far more agile when prototyping new features without the fear of endangering the maturity and stability of the long established Vertcoin network.

I have not as of yet received any offers from people wishing to help us update the Android wallet. The bounty was originally set at 1000 VTC but I am willing to take offers from developers stating the bounty which would be required for them to complete the task. Once again, please do not hesitate to contact me at: jameslovejoy1@gmail.com.
Kind Regards,

James

Any conjecture on what effect nullifying the botnet will have on price?

It seems that this coin is pump and dump. No change in the algorithm here does not help.

Sorry, if this has been answered before, but I couldn't find any answer.

I have a problem with stealth.cpp, line 126 etc.

The method ec_multiply uses

secp256k1_ec_pubkey_tweak_mul(init.getContext(), a.data(), a.size(), b.data());

, but I can only find a method

int secp256k1_ec_pubkey_tweak_mul(const secp256k1_context_t* ctx, secp256k1_pubkey_t *pubkey, const unsigned char *tweak)

in the lib?

So I have to generate a secp256k1_pubkey_t from the data and then copy the data after the mul back to the ec_point ?

Thanks in advance,
Andreas

Ok, I hacked me a solution by generating dummy pubkey_t objects and serializing their data after the method call. Not the perfect solution, but code compiles at least.

I need to fix this problem in the actual code, could you post your fix as a pull request to GitHub? It would be a great help.

What do you think will happen with price after fork? Sure the danilla botnet causes centralization, but it also causes market action which will disappear once he is gone.

There is not currently a 32-bit Windows version. Only 64-bit is available at this time, are you unable to use the 64-bit build?
