On the request of the community, we will only keep one thread for VNL and it should be in the proper ANN section of BCT: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=964581.msg10547474#msg10547474

Please move over with your questions.









Vanillacoin was engineered from the ground up and is designed to be innovative and forward-thinking. It prevents eavesdropping and censorship, promotes decentralized and energy efficient network transactions.

I am not the dev. This is an unofficial BCT thread made because the dev prefers to answer questions and lead the discussions over at the VNL forums. Please read the whitepaper and the VNL facts to get a better picture on the project. Feel free to ask anything though, we will answer you the best we can.

The coin was launched in december and was solo mined by CPUs since. The algo made the coin botnet proof and the difficulty was low. A new GPU miner was launched just recently and new pools will join mining in a few days.

The GPU miner produces around 50 MH/s on an r9 270x and the coin is still on low diff atm.



Previous ANN by the dev: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=890388.0 - locked after launch, because he isn't really supporting BCT

FAQ:

Does the miner work well with both GCN and VLIW cards?
Current miner produces a lower hashrate on VLIW cards and a higher on GCN cards. There will be different miners released in the future probably.
A user reported a hashrate of 20 MH/s on a 6970 and 30 MH/s on an 5970.

My miner produces a far lower hashrate than the other miners?
Change your driver version and delete your .bin files and start your miner again. Catalyst 14.9 seems to work well for most users.



Example configs:


270x
catalyst version: 14.9

@echo off
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
sgminer.exe  --algorithm whirlcoin -o stratum+tcp://pool01.vanillacoin.net:3033 -u USER -p PASSW -I 18 -g 2 -w 64 --no-submit-stale --failover-only --gpu-powertune 20 --gpu-engine 1010 --gpu-memclock 1250

280x

@echo off
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
sgminer.exe  --algorithm whirlcoin -o stratum+tcp://pool02.vanillacoin.net:3033 -u WALLET -p x -I 19 -g 2 -w 128 --gpu-engine 1175 --gpu-memclock 1500 --gpu-powertune 20 --gpu-fan 85

290x

@echo off
setx GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT 100
setx GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS 1
sgminer.exe  --algorithm whirlcoin -o stratum+tcp://pool02.vanillacoin.net:3033 -u WALLET -p x -I 19 -g 2 -w 128 --gpu-engine 1100 --gpu-memclock 1500 --gpu-powertune 50 --gpu-fan 85



News

21/02/2015 - Will put together a bunch of configs (according to whats posted here and on IRC) and how-to regarding mining by tomorrow and post it here

You can take it as an ANN if you want, since the coin doesn't have an open ANN atm. You can find everything about the coin in the links.

Haha, thats the spirit Cheesy

Made the OP a bit more ANNish, but this is just a placeholder until the community representative makes a proper one.

Not yet, also proper marketing and PR will only start from the dev after he finishes with the most important features.

There should be one started though.

Is there a stratum for this one? I can't seem to find anything anywhere for WhirlpoolX, and upstream nomp doesn't have it, so i guess the dev team had it implemented into nomp...

BM-NC49AxAjcqVcF5jNPu85Rb8MJ2d9JqZt is the bitmessage adress of John Connor (the dev), you can contact him directly there or on the VNL forums.

Also just asked him there to get in contact with you.

The algo is new and they are also using a custom nomp also as far as I know.

You can maybe request it on the VNL forums. Plenty of helpful people there, also use the faucet, it has tons of coins atm.

Link to my Roaming/Vanillacoin folder (excluding the wallet.dat). Feel free to scan it before using it.

(my client syncs fast though and I never had problems since a few updates)

Care with the renting now though, read the last quote in the ANN. Atm GPU mining is hash limited, to the pool avarage which is around 55 MH/s on pool01 if we count with 26 miners and 1.45 GH/s.

The limit will come off on sunday according to John or the moment a 3rd party pool comes up probably (they should be in talk with John atm).

It is picking up fast. I just checked both pools and they are at 2 GH each, so you should be able to safely mine or rent up to 400MH..
And once an NVIDIA miner comes out the hash will jump again.
