NewEnglandcoin
Symbol: NENG
NewEnglandcoin is a clone of Bitcoin using scrypt as a proof-of-work algorithm with enhanced features to protect against 51% attack and decentralize on mining to allow diversified mining rigs across CPUs, GPUs, ASICs and Android phones.
Mining Algorithm: Scrypt with RandomSpike. RandomSpike is 3rd generation of Dynamic Difficulty (DynDiff) algorithm on top of scrypt.
1 minute block targets base difficulty reset: every 1440 blocks subsidy halves in 2.1m blocks (~ 2 to 4 years) 84,000,000,000 total maximum NENG 20000 NENG per block Pre-mine: 1% - reserved for dev fund ICO: None RPCPort: 6376 Port: 6377
NewEnglandcoin has dogecoin like supply at 84 billion maximum NENG. This huge supply insures that NENG is suitable for retail transactions and daily use. The inflation schedule of NengEnglandcoin is actually identical to that of Litecoin. Bitcoin and Litecoin are already proven to be great long term store of value. The Litecoin-like NENG inflation schedule will make NewEnglandcoin ideal for long term investment appreciation as the supply is limited and capped at a fixed number
Bitcoin Fork - Suitable for Home Hobbyists
NewEnglandcoin core wallet continues to maintain version tag of "Satoshi v0.8.7.5" because NewEnglandcoin is very much an exact clone of bitcoin plus some mining feature changes with DynDiff algorithm. NewEnglandcoin is very suitable as lite version of bitcoin for educational purpose on desktop mining, full node running and bitcoin programming using bitcoin-json APIs.
The NewEnglandcoin (NENG) mining algorithm original upgrade ideas were mainly designed for decentralization of mining rigs on scrypt, which is same algo as litecoin/dogecoin. The way it is going now is that NENG is very suitable for bitcoin/litecoin/dogecoin hobbyists who can not , will not spend huge money to run noisy ASIC/GPU mining equipments, but still want to mine NENG at home with quiet simple CPU/GPU or with a cheap ASIC like FutureBit Moonlander 2 USB or Apollo pod on solo mining setup to obtain very decent profitable results. NENG allows bitcoin litecoin hobbyists to experience full node running, solo mining, CPU/GPU/ASIC for a fun experience at home at cheap cost without breaking bank on equipment or electricity.

CPU Minable Coin Because of dynamic difficulty algorithm on top of scrypt, NewEnglandcoin is CPU Minable. Users can easily set up full node for mining at Home PC or Mac using our dedicated cheetah software.
Research on the first forked 50 blocks on v1.2.0 core confirmed that ASIC/GPU miners mined 66% of 50 blocks, CPU miners mined the remaining 34%.
NENG v1.4.0 release enabled CPU mining inside android phones.

Decentralization and Community Driven NewEnglandcoin is a decentralized coin just like bitcoin. There is no boss on NewEnglandcoin. Nobody nor the dev owns NENG.
We know a coin is worth nothing if there is no backing from community. Therefore, we as dev do not intend to make decision on this coin solely by ourselves. It is our expectation that NewEnglandcoin community will make majority of decisions on direction of this coin from now on. We as dev merely view our-self as coin creater and technical support of this coin while providing NENG a permanent home at ShorelineCrypto Exchange.

ASIC/GPU Mining Pools Warning to Big ASIC Miners Due to DynDiff Algo on top of Scrypt, solo mining is recommended for ASIC/GPU miners. Further more, even for mining pools, small mining pool will generate better performance than big NENG mining pool because of new algo v1.2.x post hard fork.
The set up configuration of NENG for scrypt pool mining is same as a typical normal scrypt coin. In other word, DynDiff on Scrypt algo is backward compatible with Scrypt algo. Because ASIC/GPU miners rely on CPU miners for smooth blockchain movement, checkout bottom of "Latest News" section for A WARNING to All ASIC miners before you decide to dump big ASIC hash rate into NENG mining.
(1) Original DynDiff Warning: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5027091.msg48324708#msg48324708 (2) New Warning on RandomSpike Spike difficulty (244k) introduced in RandomSpike served as roadblocks to instant mining and provide security against 51% attack risk. However, this spike difficulty like a roadblock that makes big ASIC mining less profitable. In case of spike block to be mined, the spike difficulty immediately serve as base difficulty, which will block GPU/ASIC miners effectively and leave CPU cheetah solo miners dominating mining almost 100% until next base difficulty reset.

/r/Monero - Newcomers Please Read. Everything You Need To Know.

What is Monero (XMR)?
Monero is a secure, private, untraceable (crypto-)currency. It is open-source and freely available to all. Don't believe us? Click here.
Monero is a tool that people can actually use. It makes receiving payments hassle-free, since merchants and individuals no longer need to fear the source of funds they are accepting. With transparent systems like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Verge, or Dash, these people need to hope (or spend substantial resources verifying) the sender did not use the funds illicitly. Furthermore, merchants do not want all their vendors known, and individually do not want everyone to know how much they are spending. If I spend more than I should at Newegg (store), that's my own business.
Monero is different because every transaction is always private. There is no way for pools and exchanges to opt out of sending private transactions. Thus, Monero's anonymity set far exceeds any other coin's anonymity set. Over 86,000 transactions in the past month of August, 2017 hid the sender and receiver, and about 99.95% of them also hid the amount (will increase to 100% of all new transactions in September)! There is no suspicion in using a private transaction, since all transactions are private. A single transaction does not stick out.*
This privacy is afforded with the best technology. I implore you to take a few minutes to learn about the four main technologies that Monero uses to provide privacy:
There are several other things that make Monero great! It has a smooth tail emission, dynamic blocks and fees, and an accessible Proof of Work (mining) algorithm.
*You can optionally choose a very large, unusual ringsize to make the transaction stick out. This is not recommended, and normal users who leave the ringsize at the default setting will not experience any issues. Also, it's possible for a user to manually add identifying information to the tx_extra field, which is something that a user must seriously go out of their way to do.
Now you know Monero (XMR) has the best technology. What else makes Monero (XMR) different than other cryptocurrencies?
P.S. Want a quick-start, simple your-grandma-could-do-it guide? Here's a great one!
Am I a bad person to consider using this?
No, Monero is freedom money. You can do whatever you want with it, whenever you want, where ever you want. We make it clear that you should own your wealth 100%. What you do with it, is none of our concern.
Where does the word Monero come from?
The word Monero comes from the language Esperanto. Monero means coin oand currency. The plural way of saying Monero in Esperanto and in our cryptocurrency is Moneroj.
How do I store Monero?
Monero Core
Monero Core GUI (If you don't know how to use it, click here for instructions and tutorial)
Monero Web-Wallet
Offline Wallet Generator
Is there a lightweight wallet for Monero?
Not yet, but you can use the official GUI with a remote node.
Are there any other ways to store Monero (XMR)?
Yes, there are many mobile wallets out there that allow you to store Monero (XMR). We do not recommend them, because they are not official releases of Monero. If you do decide to use other wallets, please make sure to do your research first before storing any Moneroj in the wallet. Anything used for Monero outside of official releases, will be used at your own risk. Some may be used for scamming purposes. If you still decide to take the risk; do not use them for large amounts. Also keep in mind that there is a high chance that Monero support will not be able to help you if you bump into any problems from applications outside of official releases. Why should you not use non-official wallets? Well would you buy a house and give your only key you have to the buildemanagement and wait for him/her to open the door to the house you supposedly own? No. Same goes with cryptocurrencies. You should always have possession of your private keys, and your Moneroj. Most non-official releases own your private keys, therefore you do not own the Moneroj.

Can I use a proxy for mining?
You can use XMR Proxy. If you want to monitor your rigs you can use Monero Mining Monitor.
How can I setup a local wallet while running node with little bandwidth?
You can use GUI, as a remote node as it uses very little bandwidth. Go to settings tab and change: "localhost:18089" to "node.moneroworld.com:18089". If you are still having problems, then just use our Monero Web-Wallet.

Full Transparency (dev log)

Something simultaneously amazing and soul-crushing happened to us this ladder. We experienced a massive population boom that is unprecedented for our community and has made Path of Diablo one of the biggest diablo II servers.
I want to begin by telling everyone how much I appreciate it that you've all decided to spend your free time playing on this server. It means a lot to me that something I've worked really hard on for over two years now, is worthy of your time and in some cases your money.
But with such a big explosion in population came huge problems. And today I want to discuss the issues and be fully transparent about what has happened and what we are doing to improve the server for the better.
Ladder reset day I finally got all the mandatory stuff ready in time for launch. About 5 servers were not setup yet but the other 9 servers would be capable of taking in players when we opened the gates. At exactly midnight my time I opened up the gates but something strange happened. Very few people were capable of getting in. I was looking at the realm and the game servers and everything there looked fine. Yet on discord and twitch streams it was clearly not working.
I actually sat there for at least half an hour looking around trying to identify a problem with no immediate idea of what could be the cause. It was a terrifying feeling and I actually had to mute the streams and turn off discord because the noise there was making me panic even more. Eventually I had found the issue. CPU was maxed out. 100% usage. I looked at the processes hogging the cpu and found a strange process I'd never seen before "cpuminer.exe". Typed it in google and realized it was software designed for bitcoin mining. Earlier that day I had installed new software to help with backing up characters off of the realm server in case something bad were to happen to the character backups on the realm itself. That software must have included this cpuminer.
I ended the process, deleted the file and immediately people got in and everything progressed smoothly.
In preparation for this ladder I taught myself a bit of programming so I could create my own software designed specifically to automate parts of PoD that I use to do manually:
Every time we added new game servers these tasks became more time consuming for me so it was important I could automate them. Unfortunately some issues occurred here too.
For starters; the PoD patch file has grown a lot, going from 16mb to about 85mb. Github has a limit of 20mb for files which means we had to quickly find a solution otherwise we would have no way to distribute the patch to players. We found a way to do it but it caused all sorts of issues. First off, my software which automates the patching was no longer compatible since the url for the patch had changed. Next we found an issue with github's online editor which adds a new line to a file, resulting in the PoD Launcher comparing your one line patch CRC to the server's two line CRC.
But that's not all the problems this caused. When I uploaded a new patch to the new url which supports bigger files, I forgot that my software was still programmed to download from the old url. So the game servers detected a new update was available and begun downloading the old patch which did not have the charm system. This made everyone's inventory shrink to the vanilla game size, destroying all items in the new inventory in the process. Of course this happened while I was sleeping so I had to wake up at 4 am to manually patch the servers back to the latest version and tell everyone that I could not get their charms back. Eventually this was fixed but I had to update my software and then deliver it manually on each game server. And leading up to this update I had been manually patching bug fixes onto every game server manually. It was brutal.
Another issue is that the player count was so high that it required many more game servers. I did improve the speed at which I can deploy PoD's server software so that I can quickly add new game servers, but the recent Windows vulnerabilities you may have heard of in the news have caused big problems. When we get a new server, it needs to be updated to the latest windows patches or it will be hacked within a few hours. And these updates take a really long time which slowed the speed at which I could add new servers. Another issue is that the software I made to automate the server restarts is only capable of handling 14 game servers at once and it uses an inefficient group of script files (about 20 files per server) which means I need to edit each one twenty times when I add a new game server.
And if you thought my custom-made automation software wasn't bad enough already, I had everything programmed to work by time. So if a game server is offline, it waits 10 seconds and then launches it again. If a patch needs to be downloaded then it will initiate the download and move on within 20 seconds. The flaw seems so obvious now. When the patch went from 16mb to 80mb the time it took to download it could sometimes be greater than 20 seconds.
And this was only the beginning. We have some really cool analytics that we can study and we can also look back at the analytics from previous seasons. After 48 hours of the server launch it seemed pretty obvious to us that we would hit around 2000 concurrent users on the second weekend of the ladder. Last ladder the record was somewhere around 800 and this ladder we had already reached 1000 concurrent users on Friday and Saturday. While it is true that ZiggyD's video sped up our predictions by introducing PoD to his massive audience, the amount of people who hit the server on the tail end of the weekend, was still nowhere near what we were expecting to hit the following weekend. This made players wrongly hate on Ziggy when the servers could not take the load. All his video did was bring to light some new server issues 5 days earlier than what would have happened. And indeed I can confirm this now because even after all the servers issues, we hit 1800 users on that second weekend. Not only does this prove that the hate on Ziggy was unwarranted but also Ziggy even asked me if it was alright to make a video and I said yes. I never want to see this community be this disrespectful again towards anyone.
Turns out the Battle.net emulator software we use to run this realm is not capable of handling that amount of concurrent users. The realm crashed under the pressure and players got immediately disconnected from their games. The game servers save everything players do in a temporary place and when they save and exit the game it sends all that information to the realm server to store permanently. If the connection to the realm is severed, the game server is unable to save the information and it is therefore lost. This means when the realm crashed players would rollback to their last save and exit. Immediately we began trying to understand why this was happening. There is very little documentation on the emulator and the error logs did not give us anything useful. We were blindly toying with settings and doing trial and error.
In an attempt to prevent the realm from constantly crashing, I had to limit the amount of players who could play and make the game servers restart every two hours so that at most you would rollback two hours of content. Although we did many things to immediately help the situation, nothing was ever a permanent fix. We ended up with a small team of really good programmers in a discord channel where they tried to workout what the issue could be. We upgraded the hardware on the realm and we changed many of the emulator's settings but nothing worked. Eventually we realised that the software could be compiled in a different way that is a lot less resource intensive but more limiting to me as an administrator. We tried it and immediately the realm ran smoothly. This allowed us to uncap the server so anyone could play.
However, this did not fix the crash. All it did was made the realm run smoother and handle more players. It turns out a different error was causing some of the crashes. At this time we still don't know for sure what is causing it but we are getting closer every day. Right now the realm seems to crash every 20 or so hours so I am manually restarting the realm each day to reset that time. It is not an amazing solution but it has allowed players to play the game and we ended up reaching a new record of 1932 concurrent players. I think we would have easily surpassed 2200 concurrent users if the crashes and rollbacks hadn't turned off a lot of newcomers. I hope they will be willing to try again next ladder.
During all of this time, I was also working. All of the donations go towards server hosting cost and so I make no money from this project. This means I have to do my job in real life. The server issues were destroying my sleep and hurting my performance at my work. I love this community and server but it has completely crushed my soul and demoralized me this ladder. I would not be able to sleep during the night (as that is USA and EU prime time) which mean't i had to take naps in between work and after it. It has impacted my happiness and health more than I thought it would. Fortunately our recent improvements have helped the realm be much more stable and therefore has improved my quality of life.
The problem is that while all of this was happening, some in-game issues had been brought to my attention. I had no time to fix in-game bugs and realm issues kept taking priority over bugs in the game for obvious reasons. This means issues like Fire Claw and Battle Orders which both will require a lot of time, could not be fixed. Furthermore I realized that there is a bug which is preventing a diablo clone related item from dropping. With that said, I don't think anyone would have figured out the recipe for it anyway so I will be fixing the item and then revealing the recipe to everyone.
I am off work today so I will be writing this dev log and then working on game fixes. I just want to warn everyone that the fixes will not come as one patch but rather a series of patches. As soon as I fix one big issue I will patch it in immediately rather than delay it to finish the rest. So do not be surprised if one of the bugs is still in the game after you see your PoD Launcher download an update.
A big issue we have now is that we are completely under staffed. The moderation team is five on discord, two on reddit and two for the in-game chats. This is not enough people and has resulted in a lot of spam and hateful messages. I will be improving our tools to deal with moderation and increasing the amount of moderators we have.
I'd also like to quicky speak about the website issues. The website was becoming incredibly slow due to the increased playerbase and so we had to move servers. It was our first time ever moving web servers and so the move did not go smoothly. But right now we believe that everything is completely back to normal. Thank you for your patience.
On the donation page I have removed the donation tracker because not only is this month over-funded but also I want to discourage people from donating for awhile. We got so much donations this ladder that we really don't need any more for awhile. Remember all the money goes towards server hosting cost and right now those costs are covered for several months. Thank you to every one for their enormous generosity and kind words. It helped me power through this difficult time.
I hope that every one can forgive me for the issues and give us a second chance as we work out all the issues in a permanent way. And I also want to thank the pod team for their amazing help and thank all the players who have stuck with us and stayed positive. And I'd like to apologize for the hundreds of PMs i got that I did read but did not have time to respond to. As things improve, I will get more of my life back and therefore more time to answer PMs consistently again.

I listed it on bitcointalk last week: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2625076.0
Since then, the network hash rate has increased significantly, probably because somebody has set up a mining pool (details below)
I'd love to take some suggestions on how I could give this project some momentum. Happy to reward people with XCOIN for any good ideas or work :)
I think most importantly it needs to be listed on an exchange to be able to assign some value, but I don't have any budget to do this. Are there any exchanges which allow free listing?

Introduction to Garlicoin

FAQs

What is Garlicoin?
Garlicoin is a community-based cryptocurrency that was originally founded based on a meme of garlic bread that reached the front page of Reddit. The concept of a memecoin is similar to that of the more well-known Dogecoin, but Garlicoin is actually a fork of Litecoin, which is itself a fork of Bitcoin.
What technology is behind Garlicoin?
As it's just a fork of Litecoin, it's basically the same thing with how the addresses, wallets, etc. work but there are a few key differences. Most importantly, the mining algorithm is called "Allium," which was specially developed to be ASIC-resistant. Originally the coin was based on Scrypt-N but a hard-fork occurred on 2/16/2018 in order to solve the problem of ASICs that were discovered on the network. Another key difference is that Garlicoin only has a 40 second block time, so transactions confirm very fast.
Who developed Garlicoin?
Disclaimer: Most of the code was copy-pasted. However, there are a few developers that continue to work on the project. u/DigitalizedOrange was the founder, he likes anime. Most of the moderators are also part of the team.
Should I invest in Garlicoin?
Like any cryptocurrency, don't treat it as investing. Treat it like speculation or gambling. If you're not willing to lose that money, the answer is no. Garlicoin has even more risk behind it as it isn't trying to be at the forefront of technology or anything. All we have is meme appeal and garlic bread.
Why did the price just moon? Or why did it just crash?
With such a low volume in Garlicoin exchanges, the price can be easily manipulated. Trade with caution.
How can I start mining?
Check out the mining section in the links and tutorials down below. There's a great guide to setting everything up by Pandawan.
Why does the explorer show a different value than my web-based wallet?
Some web-based wallets, such as GarlicWallet.com, are shared wallets meaning that you don't own the private keys and the website will move your coins around between addresses. The address you receive just credits your online account so you can withdraw a specific amount however you technically do not own those coins and if the site goes down then you may lose access to them forever. For that reason, it's highly recommended that you use a wallet where you own the private keys. Paper wallets are the most secure for large values as long as you physically keep them in a safe place, as they cannot be hacked.
What other Garlic Bread goodness can I get into?
Check out GBDS (dating simulator) and GarlicBreadMemes if you can't get enough.
I have another question that isn't answered here!
First try using the search bar for this subreddit. If you can't find an answer then you can create a new thread and someone from the community will most likely help you. If I forgot to add a commonly asked question to this guide, or if there's anything else you'd like to see explained/linked here, please let me know in the comments.

  • Discussion on whether to have two more denominations one between 1 and 10 and another between 10 and 100. Reduces anonymity but increases flexibility and reduces load. To use knapsack probem calculations to determine optimum denomination.
  • Minor display issues in client
  • Zcoin daemon needs to be updated to show sigma mint/spend amounts to enable easier parsing for Insight/explorer.
  • Refactoring work continues
  • Special thanks to Mintpond for setting up testnet mining pool.

  • Shared Dmitry Khovratovich’s ideas on fixing Zerocoin to the working group
  • Tool to convert existing unspent Zerocoin mints to Sigma mints is complete and working on writing unit tests this week

Deterministic Masternodes and Core Upgrade


  • Deterministic masternode upgrade and core upgrade to 0.14 stalled temporarily because of work on Zerocoin mint conversion tool.
  • Probably another 2 weeks out after Zerocoin mint conversion tool done, then merge Sigma into it.
  • Aim deployment after Sigma release
  • Will hold off on 0.18 upgrade as Themis smart contract layer requires 0.14 as well

Exodus Adoption


  • Company wishes to develop Thai Baht stable token on Exodus token layer
  • Thai team to assist with easier GUI and API to enable easier usage of Exodus.

Lelantus


  • All cryptographic libraries finished and ready for review

Dogecoin on Linux - The Complete Beginner's Guide

I'm writing this because I couldn't find a single condensed guide on compiling the wallet and running mining software on linux, specficially Ubuntu/Linux Mint. I combed Bitcoin and Litecoin forums for similar problems I was running into and eventually got everything nailed down, so here it is in one place, for new Shibes.
If you want to make a Dogecoin directory in your downloads folder to keep things organized, you will need to modify these commands to refelct the change. So instead of going to ~/Downloads/ you will need to go to ~/Downloads/Dogecoin and be sure to put the zipped files there when you download them, but the commands will be the same otherwise.
cwayne18 put in the work to make a PPA for the QT client here.
Ubunutu/Mint/Debian users should be able to install the client with the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cwayne18/doge sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install dogecoin-qt 
To update using this method, run
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade dogecoin-qt 
Compiling the Wallet Manually
I suggest using the PPA above, but if you want to compile manually, here you go.
1)Download the newest source from here. If you want to check out the Github page, click here
2)Unzip the package with the native client OR, navigate to your downloads and unzip
cd ~/Downloads unzip dogecoin-master.zip 
3)Now it's time to compile. You will need to install the dependencies, just copy and paste the following code. It will be a fairly large download and could take some time. It is always important to update before installing any new software, so we'll do that first and then install the dependencies.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install libssl-dev libdb-dev libdb++-dev libqrencode-dev qt4-qmake libqtgui4 libqt4-dev sudo apt-get install libminiupnpc-dev libminiupnpc8 libboost-all-dev build-essential git libboost1.53-all-dev 
4)Once that is done, go to the doge-coin master directory and compile:
cd ~/Downloads/dogecoin-maste sed -i 's/-mgw46-mt-sd-1_53//g' dogecoin-qt.pro qmake USE_UPNP=- USE_QRCODE=0 USE_IPV6=0 make -j3 
After running the qmake command you will likely see some text similar to
Project MESSAGE: Building without UPNP support Project MESSAGE: Building with UPNP supportRemoved plural forms as the target language has less forms. If this sounds wrong, possibly the target language is not set or recognized. 
It's perfectly normal, so don't worry about that.
Your Dogewallet is ready to go! The executable is in ~/Downloads/dogecoin-maste and called dogecoin-qt. Your wallet information is in ~/.dogecoin. You can run the wallet at any time by opening terminal and typing
cd ~/Downloads/dogecoin-maste ./dogecoin-qt 
Future upgrades to dogewallet are easy. Back up your wallet.dat, and simply follow the same directions above, but you'll be unzipping and building the newer version. You will likely need to rename the old dogecoin-master directory in ~/Downloads before unzipping the newest version and building. Also, it is likely that you will not need to install the dependencies again.
Alternate Method For Installing Dogecoin Wallet from Nicebreakfast
After installing the dependencies listed in step 3, open terminal, then navigate to where you want Dogecoin Wallet stored and run:
git clone https://github.com/dogecoin/dogecoin ./autogen.sh ./configure make 
then when the wallet is updated just run
git pull 
from the dogecoin directory.
GPU Mining
GPU mining requires CGminer. My suggestion is to get the executable already built. The creator of cgminer has removed the built file from his website, but I've uploaded it here
sudo apt-get install pkg-config opencl-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev autoconf libtool automake m4 ncurses-dev cd ~/Downloads tar -xvf cgminer-3.7.2-x86_64-built.tar.bz2 
Don't use anything newer than 3.7.2. The newer versions of CGMiner don't support GPU mining.
That's it! You have cgminer ready to go! You will run cgminer with the following syntax
cd ~/Downloads/cgminer-3.7.2-x86_64-built/ ./cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://SERVERNAME:PORT -u WORKER.ID -p PASS 
A good guide for fine tuning cgminer can be found here; follow the litecoin example.
EDIT
I had trouble getting cgminer running with a single line command, but running it via an executable .sh file works. This is covered in the cgminer setup guide I posted above but I'll put it here too. In the same directory that has the cgminer executable, you need to make a file called cgminer.sh and make it executable. It should contain the follwing:
export GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1 export GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100 export DISPLAY=:0 find *.bin -delete sleep 5 ./cgminer 
Then you can call cgminer in terminal by doing ./cgminer.sh You will need a cgminer.conf file containing all your options. All of this is covered in the guide that is linked above.
A quick note about AMD drivers: They used to be a huge PITA to install and get working, but the newest Catalyst drivers are great. There's a GUI installer, everything works out of the box, and there is a lot of documentation. You can download them here: AMD Catalyst 14.6 Beta Linux
CPU Mining
For CPU mining I use minerd because it doesn't require any work to get running, simply download it and get to work. Download the built file for your machine 32-bit or 64-bit, and then unzip it and you're ready to go!
cd ~/Downloads tar -xvf pooler-cpuminer-2.3.2-linux-x86.tar.gz 
The executable is called minerd and it will be in ~/Downloads but you can move it to wherever you like. To run it, pull up terminal and do
cd ~/Downloads minerd --url=stratum+tcp://SERVER:PORT --userpass=USERNAME.WORKERNAME:WORKERPASSWORD 
You're done! Happy mining!
Common Issues
I ran into this and I've seen others with this problem as well. Everything installs fine but there is a shared library file that isn't where it should be. In fact, it isn't there at all.
 libudev.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory 
In terminal, do
sudo updatedb locate libudev.so.0.13.0 
And it will probably return a path /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu. Inside that directory there's a library file called libudev.so.0.13.0. You'll need to make a symlink (aka shortcut) that links libudev.so.1 to libudev.so.0.13.0 So, assuming you're working with libudev.so.0.13.0 do this
cd /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu sudo ln -s libudev.so.0.13.0 libudev.so.1 
Now if you do
ln -l 
You should see
libudev.so.1 -> ./libudev.so.0.13.0 
Meaning you've made the symlink. Also, the text for libudev.so.1 will be blue.

[TUTORIAL] Turn your $35 Raspberry Pi into a 21 Bitcoin Computer! (original post deleted)

I noticed that ButtcoinEE deleted his own tutorial from here, and I liked the information provided, so I'm reposting it for others who may not have it saved.
I haven't tested his tutorial on my own RPI yet, but if anyone wants to give it a go, I can update this as needed.
Below is the post directly quoted from OP:
You get your brand new RPI and
curl https://install.21.co/bitcoin-computeinstall.sh | sudo bash 
Congratulations, you just saved $365. That's all there is to it.
Just want the python library and not the other stuff?
wget https://apt.21.co/pool/t/tw/two1_1.0.0-1_all.deb dkpg -i two1_1.0.0-1_all.deb 
This will work on any computer, or if you want you can extract it and just use the python library without installing.
Not an honest option, not everything works and I would be essentially forking. This is not an honest comparison, but it's closer!
Forking?
You're posting directory dumps and talking about how easy it is to create your own 21 computer, yet don't know what a fork is? You just lost all credibility.
What is forking?
The software would need to be forked to work on whatever miner you attach to RPi. It's not plug and play bro and the nice folks at 21 Inc won't support your kludge.
From their code:
SupportedMiners = collections.OrderedDict([ ("rpi2miner", minerhal.RPi2Miner), ("cpuminer", minerhal.CpuMiner), ]) 
It's supported operation in the code supplied by the company.
That is not honest given that you cannot reproduce everything that the 21 Bitcoin Computer can do right now. You don't have the integrated framework. You would be doing something very different and that is not an honest comparison.
The script linked is literally what sets up the 21 Bitcoin Computer, it's identical in software in every way.

Nexus 101:

1. What is Nexus (NXS)?
Nexus is a digital currency, distributed framework, and peer-to-peer network. Nexus further improves upon the blockchain protocol by focusing on the following core technological principles:
Nexus will combine our in-development quantum-resistant 3D blockchain software with cutting edge communication satellites to deliver a free, distributed, financial and data solution. Through our planned satellite and ground-based mesh networks, Nexus will provide uncensored internet access whilst bringing the benefits of distributed database systems to the world.
For a short video introduction to Nexus Earth, please visit this link
 
2. What benefits does Nexus bring to the blockchain space?
As Nexus has been developed, an incredible amount of time has been put into identifying and solving several key limitations:
Nexus is also developing a framework called the Lower Level Library. This LLL will incorporate the following improvements:
For information about more additions to the Lower Level Library, please visit here
 
3. How does Nexus secure the network and reach consensus?
Nexus is unique amongst blockchain technology in that Nexus uses 3 channels to secure the network against attack. Whereas Bitcoin uses only Proof-of-Work to secure the network, Nexus combines a prime number channel, a hashing channel and a Proof-of-Stake channel. Where Bitcoin has a difficulty adjustment interval measured in weeks, Nexus can respond to increased hashrate in the space of 1 block and each channel scales independently of the other two channels. This stabilizes the block times at ~50 seconds and ensures no single channel can monopolize block production. This means that a 51% attack is much more difficult to launch because an attacker would need to control all 3 channels.
Every 60 minutes, the Nexus protocol automatically creates a checkpoint. This prevents blocks from being created or modified dated prior to this checkpoint, thus protecting the chain from malicious attempts to introduce an alternate blockchain.
 
4. What is quantum resistance and how does Nexus implement it?
To understand what quantum resistance is and why it is important, you need to understand how quantum computing works and why it’s a threat to blockchain technology. Classical computing uses an array of transistors. These transistors form the heart of your computer (the CPU). Each transistor is capable of being either on or off, and these states are used to represent the numerical values 1 and 0.
Binary digits’ (bits) number of states depends on the number of transistors available, according to the formula 2n, where n is the number of transistors. Classical computers can only be in one of these states at any one time, so the speed of your computer is limited to how fast it can change states.
Quantum computers utilize quantum bits, “qubits,” which are represented by the quantum state of electrons or photons. These particles are placed into a state called superposition, which allows the qubit to assume a value of 1 or 0 simultaneously.
Superposition permits a quantum computer to process a higher number of data possibilities than a classical computer. Qubits can also become entangled. Entanglement makes a qubit dependant on the state of another, enabling quantum computing to calculate complex problems, extremely quickly.
One such problem is the Discrete Logarithm Problem which elliptic curve cryptography relies on for security. Quantum computers can use Shor’s algorithm to reverse a key in polynomial time (which is really really really fast). This means that public keys become vulnerable to quantum attack, since quantum computers are capable of being billions of times faster at certain calculations. One way to increase quantum resistance is to require more qubits (and more time) by using larger private keys:
Bitcoin Private Key (256 bit) 5Kb8kLf9zgWQnogidDA76MzPL6TsZZY36hWXMssSzNydYXYB9KF
Nexus Private Key (571 bit) 6Wuiv513R18o5cRpwNSCfT7xs9tniHHN5Lb3AMs58vkVxsQdL4atHTF Vt5TNT9himnCMmnbjbCPxgxhSTDE5iAzCZ3LhJFm7L9rCFroYoqz
Bitcoin addresses are created by hashing the public key, so it is not possible to decrypt the public key from the address; however, once you send funds from that address, the public key is published on the blockchain rendering that address vulnerable to attack. This means that your money has higher chances of being stolen.
Nexus eliminates these vulnerabilities through an innovation called signature chains. Signature chains will enable access to an account using a username, password and PIN. When you create a transaction on the network, you claim ownership of your signature chain by revealing the public key of the NextHash (the hash of your public key) and producing a signature from the one time use private key. Your wallet then creates a new private/public keypair, generates a new NextHash, including the corresponding contract. This contract can be a receive address, a debit, a vote, or any other type of rule that is written in the contract code.
This keeps the public key obscured until the next transaction, and by divorcing the address from the public key, it is unnecessary to change addresses in order to change public keys. Changing your password or PIN code becomes a case of proving ownership of your signature chain and broadcasting a new transaction with a new NextHash for your new password and/or PIN. This provides the ability to login to your account via the signature chain, which becomes your personal chain within the 3D chain, enabling the network to prove and disprove trust, and improving ease of use without sacrificing security.
The next challenge with quantum computers is that Grover’s algorithm reduces the security of one-way hash function by a factor of two. Because of this, Nexus incorporates two new hash functions, Skein and Keccak, which were designed in 2008 as part of a contest to create a new SHA3 standard. Keccak narrowly defeated Skein to win the contest, so to maximize their potential Nexus combines these algorithms. Skein and Keccak utilize permutation to rotate and mix the information in the hash.
To maintain a respective 256/512 bit quantum resistance, Nexus uses up to 1024 bits in its proof-of-work, and 512 bits for transactions.
 
5. What is the Unified Time protocol?
All blockchains use time-stamping mechanisms, so it is important that all nodes operate using the same clock. Bitcoin allows for up to 2 hours’ discrepancy between nodes, which provides a window of opportunity for the blockchain to be manipulated by time-related attack vectors. Nexus eliminates this vulnerability by implementing a time synchronization protocol termed Unified Time. Unified Time also enhances transaction processing and will form an integral part of the 3D chain scaling solution.
The Unified Time protocol facilitates a peer-to-peer timing system that keeps all clocks on the network synchronized to within a second. This is seeded by selected nodes with timestamps derived from the UNIX standard; that is, the number of seconds since January 1st, 1970 00:00 UTC. Every minute, the seed nodes report their current time, and a moving average is used to calculate the base time. Any node which sends back a timestamp outside a given tolerance is rejected.
It is important to note that the Nexus network is fully synchronized even if an individual wallet displays something different from the local time.
 
6. Why does Nexus need its own satellite network?
One of the key limitations of a purely electronic monetary system is that it requires a connection to the rest of the network to verify transactions. Existing network infrastructure only services a fraction of the world’s population.
Nexus, in conjunction with Vector Space Systems, is designing communication satellites, or cubesats, to be launched into Low Earth Orbit in 2019. Primarily, the cubesat mesh network will exist to give Nexus worldwide coverage, but Nexus will also utilize its orbital and ground mesh networks to provide free and uncensored internet access to the world.
 

The Nexus Currency (NXS):

1. How can I get Nexus?
There are two ways you can obtain Nexus. You can either buy Nexus from an exchange, or you can run a miner and be rewarded for finding a block. If you wish to mine Nexus, please follow our guide found below.
Currently, Nexus is available on the following exchanges:
Nexus is actively reaching out to other exchanges to continue to be listed on cutting edge new financial technologies..
 
2. How much does a transaction cost?
Under Nexus, the fee structure for making a transaction depends on the size of your transaction. A default fee of 0.01 NXS will cover most transactions, and users have the option to pay higher fees to ensure their transactions are processed quickly.
When the 3D chain is complete and the initial 10-year distribution period finishes, Nexus will absorb these fees through inflation, enabling free transactions.
 
3. How fast does Nexus transfer?
Nexus reaches consensus approximately every ~ 50 seconds. This is an average time, and will in some circumstances be faster or slower. NXS currency which you receive is available for use after just 6 confirmations. A confirmation is proof from a node that the transaction has been included in a block. The number of confirmations in this transaction is the number that states how many blocks it has been since the transaction is included. The more confirmations a transaction has, the more secure its placement in the blockchain is.
 
4. Did Nexus hold an ICO? How is Nexus funded?
The Nexus Embassy, a 501(C)(3) not-for-profit corporation, develops and maintains the Nexus blockchain software. When Nexus began under the name Coinshield, the early blocks were mined using the Developer and Exchange (Ambassador) addresses, which provides funding for the Nexus Embassy.
The Developer Fund fuels ongoing development and is sourced by a 1.5% commission per block mined, which will slowly increase to 2.5% after 10 years. This brings all the benefits of development funding without the associated risks.
The Ambassador (renamed from Exchange) keys are funded by a 20% commission per block reward. These keys are mainly used to pay for marketing, and producing and launching the Nexus satellites.
When Nexus introduces developer and ambassador contracts, they will be approved, denied, or removed by six voting groups namely: currency, developer, ambassador, prime, hash, and trust.
Please Note: The Nexus Embassy reserves the sole right to trade, sell and or use these funds as required; however, Nexus will endeavor to minimize the impact that the use of these funds has upon the NXS market value.
 
5. Is there a cap on the number of NXS in existence?
After an initial 10-year distribution period ending on September 23rd, 2024, there will be a total of 78 million NXS. Over this period, the reward gradient for mining Nexus follows a decaying logarithmic curve instead of the reward halving inherent in Bitcoin. This avoids creating a situation where older mining equipment is suddenly unprofitable, encouraging miners to continue upgrading their equipment over time and at the same time reducing major market shocks on block halving events.
When the distribution period ends, the currency supply will inflate annually by a maximum of 3% via staking and by 1% via the prime and hashing channels. This inflation is completely unlike traditional inflation, which degrades the value of existing coins. Instead, the cost of providing security to the blockchain is paid by inflation, eliminating transaction fees.

6. What is the difference between the LLD wallet and the Oracle wallet?
Due to the scales of efficiency needed by blockchain, Nexus has developed a custom-built database called the Lower Level Database. Since the development of the LLD wallet 0.2.3.1, which is a precursor to the Tritium updates, you should begin using the LLD wallet to take advantage of the faster load times and improved efficiency.
The Oracle wallet is a legacy wallet which is no longer maintained or updated. It utilized the Berkeley DB, which is not designed to meet the needs of a blockchain. Eventually, users will need to migrate to the LLD wallet. Fortunately, the wallet.dat is interchangeable between wallets, so there is no risk of losing access to your NXS.
 
7. How do I change from Oracle to the LLD wallet?
Step 1 - Backup your wallet.dat file. You can do this from within the Oracle wallet Menu, Backup Wallet.
Step 2 - Uninstall the Oracle wallet. Close the wallet and navigate to the wallet data directory. On Windows, this is the Nexus folder located at %APPDATA%\Nexus. On macOS, this is the Nexus folder located at ~/Library/Application Support/Nexus. Move all of the contents to a temporary folder as a backup.
Step 3 - Copy your backup of wallet.dat into the Nexus folder located as per Step 2.
Step 4 - Install the Nexus LLD wallet. Please follow the steps as outlined in the next section. Once your wallet is fully synced, your new wallet will have access to all your addresses.
 
8. How do I install the Nexus Wallet?
You can install your Nexus wallet by following these steps:
Step 1 - Download your wallet from www.nexusearth.com. Click the Downloads menu at the top and select the appropriate wallet for your operating system.
Step 2 - Unzip the wallet program to a folder. Before running the wallet program, please consider space limitations and load times. On the Windows OS, the wallet saves all data to the %APPDATA%\Nexus folder, including the blockchain, which is currently ~3GB.
On macOS, data is saved to the ~/Library/Application Support/Nexus folder. You can create a symbolic link, which will allow you to install this information in another location.
Using Windows, follow these steps:
On macOS, follow these steps:
Step 3 (optional) - Before running the wallet, we recommend downloading the blockchain database manually. Nexus Earth maintains a copy of the blockchain data which can save hours from the wallet synchronization process. Please go to www.nexusearth.com and click the Downloads menu.
Step 4 (optional) - Extract the database file. This is commonly found in the .zip or .rar format, so you may need a program like 7zip to extract the contents. Please extract it to the relevant directory, as outlined in step 2.
Step 5 - You can now start your wallet. After it loads, it should be able to complete synchronization in a short time. This may still take a couple of hours. Once it has completed synchronizing, a green check mark icon will appear in the lower right corner of the wallet.
Step 6 - Encrypt your wallet. This can be done within the wallet, under the Settings menu. Encrypting your wallet will lock it, requiring a password in order to send transactions.
Step 7 - Backup your wallet.dat file. This can be done from the File menu inside the wallet. This file contains the keys to the addresses in your wallet. You may wish to keep a secure copy of your password somewhere, too, in case you forget it or someone else (your spouse, for example) ever needs it.
You should back up your wallet.dat file again any time you create – or a Genesis transaction creates (see “staking” below) – a new address.
 

Types of Mining or Minting:

1.Can I mine Nexus?
Yes, there are 2 channels that you can use to mine Nexus, and 1 channel of minting:
Prime Mining Channel
This mining channel looks for a special prime cluster of a set length. This type of calculation is resistant to ASIC mining, allowing for greater decentralization. This is most often performed using the CPU.
Hashing Channel
This channel utilizes the more traditional method of hashing. This process adds a random nonce, hashes the data, and compares the resultant hash against a predetermined format set by the difficulty. This is most often performed using a GPU.
Proof of Stake (nPoS)
Staking is a form of mining NXS. With this process, you can receive NXS rewards from the network for continuously operating your node (wallet). It is recommended that you only stake with a minimum balance of 1000 NXS. It’s not impossible to stake with less, but it becomes harder to maintain trust. Losing trust resets the interest rate back to 0.5% per annum.
 
2. How do I mine Nexus?
As outlined above, there are two types of mining and 1 proof of stake. Each type of mining uses a different component of your computer to find blocks, the CPU or the GPU. Nexus supports CPU and GPU mining on Windows only. There are also third-party macOS builds available.
Please follow the instructions below for the relevant type of miner.
 
Prime Mining:
Almost every CPU is capable of mining blocks on this channel. The most effective method of mining is to join a mining pool and receive a share of the rewards based on the contribution you make. To create your own mining facility, you need the CPU mining software, and a NXS address. This address cannot be on an exchange. You create an address when you install your Nexus wallet. You can find the related steps under How Do I Install the Nexus Wallet?
Please download the relevant miner from http://nexusearth.com/mining.html. Please note that there are two different miner builds available: the prime solo miner and the prime pool miner. This guide will walk you through installing the pool miner only.
Step 1 - Extract the archive file to a folder.
Step 2 - Open the miner.conf file. You can use the default host and port, but these may be changed to a pool of your choice. You will need to change the value of nxs_address to the address found in your wallet. Sieve_threads is the number of CPU threads you want to use to find primes. Ptest_threads is the number of CPU threads you want to test the primes found by the sieve. As a general rule, the number of threads used for the sieve should be 75% of the threads used for testing.
It is also recommended to add the following line to the options found in the .conf file:
"experimental" : "true"
This option enables the miner to use an improved sieve algorithm which will enable your miner to find primes at a faster rate.
Step 3 - Run the nexus_cpuminer.exe file. For a description of the information shown in this application, please read this guide.
 
Hashing:
The GPU is a dedicated processing unit housed on-board your graphics card. The GPU is able to perform certain tasks extremely well, unlike your CPU, which is designed for parallel processing. Nexus supports both AMD and Nvidia GPU mining, and works best on the newer models. Officially, Nexus does not support GPU pool mining, but there are 3rd party miners with this capability.
The latest software for the Nvidia miner can be found here. The latest software for the AMD miner can be found here. The AMD miner is a third party miner. Information and advice about using the AMD miner can be found on our Slack channel. This guide will walk you through the Nvidia miner.
Step 1 - Close your wallet. Navigate to %appdata%\Nexus (~/Library/Application Support/Nexus on macOS) and open the nexus.conf file. Depending on your wallet, you may or may not have this file. If not, please create a new txt file and save it as nexus.conf
You will need to add the following lines before restarting your wallet:
Step 2 - Extract the files into a new folder.
Step 3 - Run the nexus.bat file. This will run the miner and deposit any rewards for mining a block into the account on your wallet.
For more information on either Prime Mining or Hashing, please join our Slack and visit the #mining channel. Additional information can be found here.
 
3. How do I stake Nexus?
Once you have your wallet installed, fully synchronized and encrypted, you can begin staking by:
After you begin staking, you will receive a Genesis transaction as your first staking reward. This establishes a Trust key in your wallet and stakes your wallet balance on that key. From that point, you will periodically receive additional Trust transactions as further staking rewards for as long as your Trust key remains active.
IMPORTANT - After you receive a Genesis transaction, backup your wallet.dat file immediately. You can select the Backup Wallet option from the File menu, or manually copy the file directly. If you do not do this, then your Nexus balance will be staked on the Trust key that you do not have backed up, and you risk loss if you were to suffer a hard drive failure or other similar problem. In the future, signature chains will make this precaution unnecessary.
 
4. I am staking with my Nexus balance. What are interest rate, trust weight, block weight, and stake weight?
These items affect the size and frequency of staking rewards after you receive your initial Genesis transaction. When staking is active, the wallet displays a clock icon in the bottom right corner. If you hover your mouse pointer over the icon, a tooltip-style display will open up, showing their current values.
Please remember to backup your wallet.dat file (see question 3 above) after you receive a Genesis transaction.
Interest Rate - The minting rate at which you will receive staking rewards, displayed as an annual percentage of your NXS balance. It starts at 0.5%, increasing to 3% after 12 months. The rate increase is not linear but slows over time. It takes several weeks to reach 1% and around 3 months to reach 2%.
With this rate, you can calculate the average amount of NXS you can expect to receive each day for staking.
Trust Weight - An indication of how much the network trusts your node. It starts at 5% and increases much more quickly than the minting (interest) rate, reaching 100% after one month. Your level of trust increases your stake weight (below), thus increasing your chances of receiving staking transactions. It becomes easier to maintain trust as this value increases.
Block Weight - Upon receipt of a Genesis transaction, this value will begin increasing slowly, reaching 100% after 24 hours. Every time you receive a staking transaction, the block weight resets. If your block weight reaches 100%, then your Trust key expires and everything resets (0.5% interest rate, 5% trust weight, waiting for a new Genesis transaction).
This 24-hour requirement will be replaced by a gradual decay in the Tritium release. As long as you receive a transaction before it decays completely, you will hold onto your key. This change addresses the potential of losing your trust key after months of staking simply because of one unlucky day receiving trust transactions.
Stake Weight - The higher your stake weight, the greater your chance of receiving a transaction. The exact value is a derived by a formula using your trust weight and block weight, which roughly equals the average of the two. Thus, each time you receive a transaction, your stake weight will reset to approximately half of your current level of trust.

Usage

Helix has numerous features. Remember that this list is not limited, and that we will always work hard to add new features:
  • Fast and secure transactions.
  • Strong privacy with options for both private and transparent transactions.
  • Rewards for participating in the Helix network. This includes Proof of Stake (PoS) as well as the possibility for masternode rewards.
  • Participating in governance and voting in important matters that concern the whole community.
  • Multi-OS wallets: Windows, MacOS, Linux, and many more to come.
  • Very easy access to all our features and wallets.
  • We will continue to work hard on making Helix grow, check out our roadmap for details.
We believe in empowering individuals by creating a strong community. We give freedom back to the people by using our strong Helix blockchain network and decentralized technology. This allows people to do business without the compromise of being subject to surveillance by centralized or legal institutions.

​Proof of Stake

Bitcoin uses a cryptographic hashing algorithm to encode the transactions in the blockchain. Miners create these hashes by using a ‘Proof of Work’ (PoW) algorithm. The network hashrate is actually inflating as it requires a lot of power to create a new block in its blockchain.
Unlike Bitcoins PoW mechanism, Helix blockchain uses a hybrid system. The first 90.200 blocks are PoW, and after this period we switch to a PoS mechanism. The rewards a user receives depends on the amount of stake the participant has in the Helix network. The more you participate in validating and processing Helix transactions and its blocks, the more rewards you receive. Therefore, it’s incentivized to invest in Helix as a valuable core product.

Masternodes

The value of Helix lies in its main vision: building a secure and scalable currency. Therefore, Helix implemented masternodes, which can be used to earn more Helix by passive income to increase your holdings with a great risk/reward ratio. A masternode costs 10.000 HLIX and gives a ROI of 60%.
Masternodes are enhanced nodes that are always up and running, which provide additional functions and security to the Helix network. Masternodes provide an enhanced form of staking, increase the privacy and speed of transactions and enables participation in governance and voting within the Helix community. A Helix masternode processes Zerocoin (zHLIX) transactions which ensures topnotch privacy (more about this subject under ‘Privacy’).

Privacy

Helix believes in true and strong privacy. Bitcoins transactions are traceable for anyone who’s interested to find out. A high degree of privacy doesn’t allow this potential loss of privacy. That’s why Helix implemented the Zerocoin protocol. For detailed information about Zerocoin, read their whitepaper.
For this service, Helix coins have to convert into a zHLIX coin. This process, called ‘minting’, is provided by masternodes running on the Helix Blockchain. No traces are left behind during this process. RSA-2048 encryption makes sure no information about the users is shared whatsoever. To reverse this process, you can send your zHLIX coins to your own address back into regular HLIX coins.

Coin information

Helix is founded on September 1st 2018. A total coin supply of 500.000.000 HLIX will be created, with a functional pre-mine of 1% (5.000.000 HLIX). This will be used for marketing, development and exchange listing fees. The first period will exist of a PoW phase (10.000.000 HLIX), followed by a PoS phase (485.000.000 HLIX).

The following table shows the block rewards. They adjust after a certain amount is reached, to control inflation of the supply of Helix:

Community

The community started with a couple of early adopters who were unhappy about the way some projects were run by its developers. No innovation or vision whatsoever made us motivated to create something better. Since Helix did not have an ICO and only started with a functional pre-mine of 1%, it’s really thanks to the true core believers who put in their time and effort that made Helix a reality.
We aim to provide 24/7 support, and we believe in a community who help each other out. Positivity and fun should be your top priority as a Helix community member. In accordance to this, we created the Helix masternode governance system to bring back the power to the people. By letting you decide on important matters, you’re in control of your investment.

Join us!

More people are joining every day and we hope this growth won’t stop. Don’t feel afraid to join us and introduce yourself. We’re looking forward to meet you!
With the upcoming years ahead of us, we believe that exciting things will happen. Helix is a premium privacy ¬centric cryptocurrency, with strong features resulting in a decentralized, effectively anonymous cryptocurrency, with immediate (private) transactions and an incentivized network to provide additional services and security to the blockchain network of Helix. We will continue to work hard on the project, and hope to see you join us.

Doge value is going down, I have got a plan.

Ok, So over the past few weeks the price per doge in bitcoin has gone from 0.00000200 BTC/DOGE to 0.00000100 BTC/DOGE. I have got a plan to fix this. Everyone visit http://azure.microsoft.com Then click on "Free Trial" and sign up. Then hit +NEW. Then Compute->Virtual Machine->Quick Create. Then select image: "Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS". Then Size "A4". Choose whatever DNS you want. Type in a password and do it under free trial. Then hit create. Then follow instructions to ssh into the server. Then once sshed in, type in "sudo apt-get update", then type "sudo apt-get install build-essential libcurl4-openssl-dev". Next Type these lines
$ wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/cpuminefiles/pooler-cpuminer-2.3.3.tar.gz
$ tar xzf pooler-cpuminer-*.tar.gz
$ cd cpuminer-*
$ ./configure CFLAGS="-O3"
$ make
And once you have done that, type "./minerd --url=stratum+tcp://myminingpool.com:3333 --userpass=my.worker:password" with your info. You can create up to 3 of these servers. You can mine on them until your trial runs out. Then if you want you can create another account. If we get enough people to do this we can mine a ton of coins and get the value back up.

Beginner's guide to Myriad Mining 4: Raspberry Pi edition

Beginner's guide to Myriad Mining 4: Raspberry Pi edition!
 
Part 1 - Mining Myriad with your Desktop PC (CPU) is here: https://www.reddit.com/myriadcoin/comments/6jj5z5/beginners_guide_to_myriad_mining_using_you
 
Part 2 - Mining Myriad with your NVIDIA GPU is here: https://www.reddit.com/myriadcoin/comments/6jobfa/beginners_guide_to_myriad_mining_part_2_using/
 
Part 3 - Mining Myriad with your AMD GPU is here: https://www.reddit.com/myriadcoin/comments/6lsic9/beginners_guide_to_myriad_mining_part_3_using/
   
Requirements:
 
-A Raspberry Pi
-Keyboard, mouse, network cable
-A PC for the wallet
-SD card (8 GB+)
-Patience
 
I'm personally using a Pi 2, however I'd be interested to know if there are hurdles/hashrate differences with any of the other Pi models.
 
I also have a few Pi heatsinks on order, and it seems you may even be able to overclock your Pi for this - I'll have a look into this and report back if there is any interest in running the Pi mining, overclocked with a heatsink. Commonly these machines are used to control Bitcoin ASICs, so this should be interesting!
 
N.B. Some of the initial steps are similar (or even identical) to the earlier guides. I recommend reading through it from start to finish, even if you think you're far ahead of me - sometimes there's a simple error that can be corrected by making sure all the steps are done in order.
 
  1. Get your wallet: Click on one of the following links https://github.com/myriadteam/myriadcoin/releases/download/v0.11.3.2/myriad-0.11.3.2-win64-setup.exe (or https://github.com/myriadteam/myriadcoin/releases/download/v0.11.3.2/myriad-0.11.3.2-win32-setup.exe if your computer cannot run the first) to download the Myriad official wallet. Install it on your PC, follow the setup instructions, then click "receive". Enter a label and press "request payment". This will be your wallet address for your Pi. If you did this for the CPU, AMD, or NVIDIA mining guides, you can do it again - there's no harm in knowing exactly where the payments are coming from, and there's no limit to how many addresses you can make to request Myriad. I'm talking about "request payment" - you only need one wallet application!
  2. Sign up for an account on a mining pool that takes Myriadcoin - Yescrypt. "Yescrypt" is the code that allows your Pi to search for coins on the network, and should only work with a CPU (central processing unit). The one I've been using for my guides is https://miningpoolhub.com/ . Once you sign up, click "Myriadcoin - Yescrypt pool" on the left, then click on "workers". Add a new worker - I called my first one CPU1, CPU2 etc for each new CPU, then Pi1, Pi2 etc for each Raspberry Pi. Password doesn't matter. In the difficulty box, you can put "sd=0.01" for a Pi 2 - thanks smatdesa , however sometimes just leaving it to auto-adjust can work better.
  3. After this click "wallet" on the left. Enter your "payment address" from step 1 and your PIN, as well as "20" for automatic payout of coins you mine, so you see some coin in your wallet every day or two. Please note, some pools charge a fee for this. 0.1 is the fee for my pool, and I'm happy to pay it to have the coins safely with me, as I don't donate - I have far too few Myriad to do so.
  4. This is where the guide diverges from the previous guides. If you're following along at home, this is a good place to start if you're in a hurry to get mining.
  5. Download Raspbian from this link: https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian_latest and click on "download ZIP under "Raspbian with desktop"(let me know if the link changes!). Whilst this is downloading, grab yourself a copy of 7-zip from www.7-zip.org ( http://www.7-zip.org/a/7z1604-x64.exe for 64-bit and http://www.7-zip.org/a/7z1604.exe for 32-bit ). If you don't know what "32-bit" or "64-bit" means, that's okay - generally, 64-bit should work fine.
  6. So, let's continue getting software ready. Install 7-zip by double-clicking on your downloaded file. Also grab yourself a copy of Etcher - for writing our Raspbian to our Pi SD card from this linK: https://etcher.io/ . Click "download for Windows x64". If this one doesn't work/install, click the little arrow to the right, and click "Etcher for Windows x64 (32-bit) (Installer).
  7. Now, with all of the required software in place to install Raspbian, let's write it to our SD card. Double click your Raspbian-Jessie .zip file, and drag the .img file inside into a foldeonto your desktop. After it extracts, open up your copy of Etcher, and click "select image" - pick the .img you just dropped. Select your SD card be careful here! make sure it's actually your SD card and click Flash.
  8. Start your Pi Once this is done, plonk your SD into your Pi, connect power, keyboard, mouse, and HDMI, and watch the pretty lights flashing! The next step is acquiring the mining software to get your Pi mining. On the desktop, which has a lovely picture of a road and some nature, if that's your thing. But we're here to get mining! Click on the fourth icon from the left (default) - Terminal - a little icon with a window and blue menu bar . You're presented with a CLI (command line interface) in lovely black and green.
 
Type the following into your CLI:
 
git clone https://github.com/tpruvot/cpuminer-multi
 
This should echo the following: "cloning into 'cpuminer-multi'...", and could potentially take a while - on my Pi 2 running Raspbian Jessie, it took me somewhere along the lines of half an hour for this step alone. You should end with "Checking out files: 100%" or something along these lines, and be returned to your blue $ CLI prompt. Next command is as follows:
 
sudo apt-get install automake autoconf pkg-config libcurl4-openssl-dev libjansson-dev libssl-dev libgmp-dev make g++
 
Hit "y" at the prompt to begin installation of the required packages.
 
The **next command happens to be the simple build command:
 
./build.sh
 
All done. Make yourself a cup of tea, and feel excited that your Pi is doing a thing (compiling). The next thing you know, it's all complete, and you're left staring at your lovely blue $ prompt. So let's get it working!
 
cd cpuminer-multi
 
This will get you into your folder. The following command should get you mining happily (yes!):
 
cpuminer -o stratum+tcp://hub.miningpoolhub.com:20577 -a yescrypt -u username.workername -p x -t 4
 
Explanation: We are using cpuminer to connect to the mining pool we joined in step 2. -a yescrypt is the algorithm we are using, username is the user name you joined the pool with, workername is the worker we added, all in step 2. -p is your password (it shouldn't matter - you could potentially put myriad2them00n, but let's not complicate things), and -t 4 is the number of threads - you can experiment with this, depending on your Pi - for my Pi 2, I get the most submitted shares with 4 threads.
 
Mining speed: To give you an idea of my experience: if you lined up 15 of these, all overclocked to 1 GHz, they would produce around the same hashrate as a modern i5 laptop (1.5 kH/s).
 
And that's it!. Shout out to smatdesa, who got me excited about working on this guide! Please post any new configurations, questions or comments below! Happy Myriad mining. And if your 3,166 Raspberry Pis are burning rubber and overflowing your coffers with XMY, or you just like what you see here, I'm humbly accepting: Donations (XMY only please):

Are CryptoTab Browser H/s real???

Well, I know some people will call out CryptoTab here, but it ok. The thing I want to know is that how CryptoTab Browser (the first browser with integrated mining algorithm apparently) manage to hit such high H/s? CryptoTab started as extension for both Chrome and Firefox, I tried it on Chrome and got 15 - 20 H/s with my poor i7 4510u (This is a low TDP Intel CPU for laptops with max 23w in fullLoad) Then I saw someone posting on their Facebook page saying that Firefox gives twice the H/s, so I went and downloaded Firefox (never liked Firefox cuz their browser looked really messed up) but then I saw that Firefox Quantum was a thing and downloaded it to see and once I saw the new protect, I uninstalled Chrome from my PC lol. And the guy was right! I was now mining at 30 - 35 H/s twice as much!! Then a few days later, they finally launched their CryptoTab Browser which promissed 4x or even 8x the mining speed!!! Download it and from 30 - 35 H/s in Firefox I was now doing 100 - 130 H/s !!!! O.o How is it possible!? I don't even get this much using any miner out there!!! (cpuminer, minerd, Zecminer etc) And then you would say "pfff LUL fake hashes LUL" I also thought SO! but the speed with I was mining was really increased!! I managed to mine a few satoshis with a few minutes instead of hours!! They told me they aren't mining Bitcoins, they actually mines Monero / Litecoin and then convert to Bitcoin to their users, and they actually pay! lol, the minimum payment request is 0.00041 BTC but if you install their other extension (CryptoSearch) you can withdraw at 0.00001 BTC in case they have spare funds to cover the fees from users withdraws. I managed to withdraw 0.00001BTC to my GreenAddress Wallet yesterday. Tl;DR Can someone tell me how they managed to optimize their browser to give ridicules H/s? From 30 H/s to 130 H/s is absurd increase! Their browser is 64 Bits Chromium based. I'm just really curious to know how they managed to make a fully function browser and yet give aburds amount of hashes rate too, while standalone miners give me like 30 H/s most of the time, sometimes 50 but it vary a lot!!! Maybe i'm overlooking something?

Dogecoin is the reason I'm even a reddit user now... not vice versa! And I'm not the only one... wow such pattern?

Admittedly I'm a long-time lurker (though if mostly because reddit is where, uh, news seems to come from.) I've also been cpumining a (teeny tiny, obviously... <150) amount of doge for about a couple weeks now.
Last night, I realized it was about time to try to join the pack and see if my fellow shibes would accept me as one of their own. So, really, dogecoin is what finally drove me to join reddit.
I mean, many prominent shibes are long-time redditors... it's kinda peculiafascinating that dogecoin could be driving more interest in reddit now. That's gotta be a new pattern. And I surely can't be the only one... read into it what you want!
Like a lot of ye, I never really had more than a passing, 'huh well that's neat' interest in bitcoin. Dogecoin grabbed me because, well... 1 doge = 1 doge. That philosophy is just perfect. Tearing down those psychological barriers that really allow us to embrace it as a CURRENCY, not just a commodity.
I also recall something someone had written -- I really wish I could credit them -- about how government-issued money traditionally has the heads of monarchs and politicians. And that dogecoin totally transcends the meme on which it's based... the shibe is really a symbol that puts a smile on everyone's face, regardless of language/nationality. This is a REAL economic experiment, not an experiment in greed. That is really, really awesome, guys.
...It's not been perfect for me, though, as an outcast shibe (or an OMEGA SHIBE, if you will.) I was looking to jumpstart my human -> shibe transition last night by getting rid of some CAD for DOGE on dogemarket. probably rightfully so, but being such a new redditor, and having zero credibility, seems to raise a huge red flag to sellers... :(
wow. so newbie. very community. such scare.
...to the moon?

Tacotime mentioned a hard fork proposal to never let the block reward drop below 1 coin:
Code: if (blockReward < 1){ blockReward = 1; }
I assume this is merely delaying the problem, however. I proposed a fixed annual debasement (say 2%) with a tx fee cap of like 0.001% of the current block reward (or whatever sounds reasonable). That way we still get the spam protection without worrying about fee escalation down the road."

-2059: I was skeptical of this conspiracy theory at first but after thinking about the numbers and looking back at the code again, I'm starting to believe it.
These are not deep optimizations, just cleaning up the code to work as intended.
At 100 H/s, with 500k iterations, 70 cycles per L3 memory access, we're now at 3.5 GHz which is reasonably close. So the algorithm is finally memory-bound, as it was originally intended to be. But as delivered by the bytecode developers not even close.
I know this is going to sound like tooting our own horn but this is another example of the kind of dirty tricks you can expect from the 80% premine crowd and the good work being done in the name of the community by the Monero developers.
Assuming they had the reasonable, and not deoptimized, implementation of the algorithm as designed all along (which is likely), the alleged "two year history" of bytecoin was mined on 4-8 PCs. It's really one of the shadiest and sleaziest premines scams yet, though this shouldn't be surprising because in every type of scam, the scams always get sneakier and more deceptive over time (the simple ones no longer work)."

I don't expect a really dominant GPU miner any time soon, maybe ever. GPUs are just computers though, so it is certainly possible to mine this on a GPU, and there probably will be a some GPU miner, but won't be so much faster as to put small scale CPU miners out of business (probably -- absent some unknown algorithmic flaw).
Everyone focuses on botnets because it has been so long since regular users were able to effectively mine a coin (due to every coin rapidly going high end GPU and ASIC) that the idea that "users" could vastly outnumber "miners" (botnet or otherwise) isn't even on the radar.
The vision here is a wallet that asks you when you want to install: "Do you want to devote some of you CPU power to help secure the network. You will be eligible to receive free coins as a reward (recommended) [check box]."

-3571: "Tacotime wanted the thread name and OP to use the word privacy instead of anonymity, but I made the change for marketing reasons. Other coins do use the word anonymous improperly, so we too have to play the marketing game. Most users will not bother looking at details to see which actually has more privacy; they'll assume anonymity > privacy. In a world with finite population, there's no such thing as anonymity. You're always "1 of N" possible participants.
Zero knowledge gives N -> everyone using the currency, ring signatures give N -> your choice, and CoinJoin gives N -> people who happen to be spending around the same amount of money as you at around the same time. This is actually the critical weakness of CoinJoin: the anonymity set is small and it's fairly susceptible to blockchain analysis. Its main advantage is that you can stick to Bitcoin without hard forking.
Another calculated marketing decision: I made most of the OP about ring signatures. In reality, stealth addressing (i.e. one-time public keys) already provides you with 90% of the privacy you need. Ring signatures are more of a trump card that cannot be broken. But Bitcoin already has manual stealth addressing so the distinguishing technological factor in CryptoNote is the use of ring signatures.
This is why I think having a coin based on CoinJoin is silly: Bitcoin already has some privacy if you care enough. A separate currency needs to go way beyond mediocre privacy improvements and provide true indistinguishably. This is true thanks to ring signatures: you can never break the 1/N probability of guessing correctly. There's no additional circumstantial evidence like with CoinJoin (save for IP addresses, but that's a problem independent of cryptocurrencies)."

This is a dense digest of the first several thousand messages on the definitive Monero thread.
A lot of things happened in this stressful days and most are recorded here. It can be summarized in this:
  • 28th April: Othe and zone117x assume the GUI wallet and CN pools tasks.
  • 30th April: First NoodleDoodle's miner optimization.
  • 11th May: First Monero exchanger
  • 13th May: Open source pool code is ready.
  • 16th May: First pool mined block.
  • 19th May: Monero in poloniex
  • 20th May: Monero +1100 bitcoin 24h trading volume in Poloniex.
  • 21st May: New official miner optimization x4 speed (accumulated optimization x12-x16). Open source wolf0's CPU miner released.
  • 25th May: partnership with i2p
  • 28th May: The legendary super-optimized miner is leaked. Currently running x90 original speed. Hedge of the "cloud farmers" is over in the cpu mining.
  • 2nd June: Monero at last has a logo. Ticker symbol changes to the definitive XMR (former MRO)
  • 4th June: Claymore's open source GPU miner.
  • 10th June: Monero's "10,000 bitcoin pizza" (2500 XMR paintig). Deterministic seed-based wallets (recover wallet with a 24 word seed)
  • March 2015 – tail emission added to code
  • March 2016 – monero hard forks to 2 min block and doubles block reward
There basically two things in here that can be used to attack Monero:
  • Crippled miner Gave unfair advantage to those brave enough to risk money and time to optimize and mine Monero.
  • Fast curve emission non-bitcoin-like curve as initially advertised and as it was widely accepted as suitable
Though we have to say two things to support current Monero community and devs:
  • The crippled miner was coded either by Bytecoin or CryptoNote, and 100% solved within a month by Monero community
  • The fast curve emission was a TFT miscalculation. He forgot to consider that as he was halving the block target he was unintentionally doubling the emission rate.
