Hi,

I have been working over the past week on version of ccminer supporting neoscrypt algo for and I have decided to release it as a crowdfunded project.  

This means that it will be publicly available once the donation reach a certain amount. Right now this amount has been fixed at 5btc,
however I might release it before.
Now, if there isn't enough people who donates, the miner will be only given to those who have pledged.
 
Donation will have to be made to that btc address: 18UZRrybgjmR4M53Aca4Q8YBguqErZ5qaP


Current speed of the miner:
750ti: 127kh/s  150kh/s (using sgminer and public kernel would give you 30~40/khs, so it is 3.5x faster)
780ti: 212kh/s  300kh/s
980:   427kh/s  630kh/s

This is still a work in progress, so the hashrate will most likely increases in a near future (and it is already a lot faster than last week)

So what's to stop you from releasing a shitty version of your miner to the public and a 'optimized' version to clients who want more speed and are willing to pay for it? How do we know there isn't already a tier system like this in place?

I'll answer that.
Because nobody contributes to the public release.

Was the original ccminer not released under 'GNU Public License'?
To charge for it would break this.

Shitty 480kh/s ? isn't that shitty, and considering that with the opencl you'll probably get 100kh/s for the same hardware...
I don't know any tier, but if any want to buy they can contact me.  Grin

As I said, it will be made public, if the public donate. If just a bunch donate only those who donate will receive it...
(after it will be up to them to kill their advantage for free  Grin)

That's why I am asking for donation for making it public...
also no, there is nothing against, the only thing required by the licence is to release the source when this is made public.
right now you have nothing, is there a law which force to release anything I make ? well no.

No, but you're not allowed to use any part of the previous code and charge for it. I think that still holds under revision 3?

(you should understand that as an engineer, everything piece of code you use have various origines, but you are still getting paid to organise them into something meaninful... you are not paid less if part of the code is GPL or not...)

I don't think cbuchner will care ^^"
This isn't "fee-ware", so I don't think it violates the GPL in thought and spirit. It's a crowdfunding project, he gets "paid/donated" for the work he's doing, not for the result :p

Anyways, I'll send you some BTC djm34 Wink (If my btc-qt ever syncs up...) Wish I could give you more, but I've only got 2x 750ti's and profits aren't really reeling in these days. Anyways, have a good beer (or wine or mead or whatever) Cheesy

I have no problem with the crowd funding.

Think about this. With out this the Neoscrypt is left to only AMD.

Sure there is the open cl AMD miner that works for Nvidia cards but it is not optimized at all and not worth using.

If you are going to leave your BTC on an exchange please send it to this address instead 1GH3ub3UUHbU5qDJW5u3E9jZ96ZEmzaXtG, I will at least use the money better than someone who steals it from the exchange. Thanks Wink

thanks, you don't have to donate a lot. The point here, is rather to gather many small donation rather than big one from a few (however don't hesitate if you want to make a big one  Grin).
I mean, the main problem with the latest new algo, is that only a few donate while many others dump and kill the coin.
killing the profit for everyone including those who developed the miner and those who donate.
I believe if they have to give a little something they will think twice before dumping...

Fair enough, but what about the people that developed the code / libraries that are being re used by cbuchner?

This is a way bigger issue than this project. Big supporter of croudfunding and opensource software.
Afraid this just feels 'not right' to me. Seems to violate the principles of both. But what do I know.
Anyway, registered my reservations, good luck with it.
Hash on.

Anyways, good point about the other libs, but he's not selling any mods to them. He could all unload them as dlls and release the miner without. So that's not really an issue there Wink

Just sent 0.025BTC from Miner Control (transaction).

Of note, by my calculations right now, even with 3x the performance over sgminer, NeoScrypt is still paying less than half of what some other algos are right now.  Still, prices go up and down so it may be worth it in the end.

BExR exchange rates on your phone's home screen.
Miner Control to get auto algorithm switching for multiple mining services. (please donate if you like)
