the webcl code is freely available, why bother paying so much to get it open sourced?
Just because someone publishes it doesn't mean you can copy it.

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

Thanks for all the hard work on the webCL miners!  Count me in for 10btc.

also have preference for BSD license.


edit:

thought I should add a requirement or two
* Should work with atleast a few different combinations of browsers-OSs-GPUs, with plans to work on as many as possible
*Configuration options, How would someone connect this to a pool or standalone client

I don't think it is possible to work with different browsers right now because only Firefox has a WebCL plugin.

Essentially the same kind of code will run on any browser once WebCL becomes standardized.

I can't meet a long list of requirements, but I can provide a working starting point for the effort and will even do a short write up to make sure the project gets off on the right foot.

Modifying this to be compatible with arbitrary pools and what not is a straitforward task. The 'hard' parts in my opinion are just battling with the strangeness of the javascript environment. I have been coding for a decade, and I find C easier to debug than Javascript.

I'll open source it today if you guys can come up with 75 coins.

If you think about it, your using an open source money system using money generated by open source software to buy open source software, and its pretty much cheap if you have been mining.

The thing is, all the miners out there now, really don't want to see this project existing, because it makes mining too easy, if this was several months from now and WebCL was standard, your looking at Linux based miners high on cryptography getting out done by hoardes of 13 year old girls on facebook running this unknowingly just to buy virtual dresses in a princess game whist the shadowy company behind it profits immensely.

rawdod, I think your offering a awesome deal.  I want to bring my contribution up to 15btc(hopefully some others chip in as well).  I wish I began mining sooner,  I would snatch this offer up in a second.   Good luck.

I am getting less the 1/3rd of what gui miner is making when using kradminer and coined  was only making about 500 khash/s when i am getting a steady 930 mhash/ in guiminer.

I love this idea does anyone know why the rates are so poor, or do I just need to let them run for a longer period of time?

Updated: Desktop Lag should be fixed, however the hashrate might jump around and be under-reported.

In actuality the hashrate is probably 85% the speed of guiminer for ATI users and exactly the same speed for nvidia users.

But let me know how it runs on your system. Try not to confuse mhash and khash when reporting, I display both to hopefully teach the correlation...

Just an update since the forums are so fast moving these days, and this ones a little slower, I've added experimental multi-gpu support.

Please test and provide feedback!


http://kradminer.com?device=1   (for the second card )

http://kradminer.com?device=2   (for the third card )

http://kradminer.com?device=3   (for the forth card ...)


Once I know it works as I expect it to, I will add it to the interface.
