8 Best Cryptocurrency Mining Tools for Linux

Lightweight Linux distro for ASIC mining [x-post /r/bitcoin]

Lightweight Linux distro for ASIC mining [x-post /bitcoin] submitted by puck2 to BitcoinMining [link] [comments]

What were some early linux distros made just to mine bitcoin? I found an old version .8.1 of bitcoin on a machine (no coins found) but want to look further back.

The state of cryptocurrency in China. If anyone tells you otherwise, they are lying.

It's been a while since I outlined the state of cryptocurrency in China, but I should probably tell you guys why this is important first: Journalists will do anything to shill you their "news" so they can get their sponsor dollars. Crypto YouTubers who comment on the story without reading the original news story or transpiration of events in Chinese further distort this message. With that out of the way, let's dive in to free knowledge.
-Mining is just fine, so long as miners have all of their documents properly registered. The Chinese government thinks, "Whatever, sell this stuff to foreigners. We'll gladly let more USD flow in to our economy in exchange for thin air." -Most Chinese-owned exchanges set up offices abroad, usually in Singapore. Some have dev teams in Malaysia / Taiwan. -The Chinese government hasn't really out-right BANNED crypto ownership as far as I know, but they have certainly made it very difficult to own it. Which leads me to these two points: -I tried sending an APK file for an android phone wallet app to an American buddy of mine and his Chinese-made phone with a specialized Chinese distro of android would not allow him to install it. He sent me a screenshot that showed his phone basically displayed, "Unable to install application." or something similar. -I wouldn't be surprised to learn that Chinese-made distros of Windows, Linux, or Macintosh-specific operating systems do not allow users to install wallets to their desktops either - but I have not verified this. -These last two points can be circumvented by buying phones and operating systems made for foreign countries on China's ebay equivalent, Taobao. -There have been previous court-rulings where bitcoin was recognized as PROPERTY. -My view is that the CCP's attitude is, "Less crypto, less headache. Turn it in to USD and bring it in to China." -I would not be surprised to learn that later down the road the CCP makes a list of present cryptocurrencies that may be bought and sold legally in China in the future. I would only be shocked if bitcoin were not on that list. -It is commonplace for employees of exchanges to get paid in crypto in China. This is usually done with a stablecoin. -I have an undergraduate degree in Chinese and previously worked for a Chinese-owned exchange. This is where my knowledge comes from. -Everything listed here to this point in time should be treated like "law" unless Xi Jinping himself or another government official say otherwise in the near future.
Any questions? Fire away.

[ANN][ANDROID MINING][AIRDROP] NewEnglandcoin: Scrypt RandomSpike

New England
New England 6 States Songs: https://www.reddit.com/newengland/comments/er8wxd/new_england_6_states_songs/
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.

Getting frustrated with Ubuntu. Are my experiences the norm for a Linux user?

Let me start off by saying that I'm not a total newb, but still pretty green. I like to believe I'm capable with computers, and know enough to figure out most issues. I also have a pretty solid general understanding of how they function. Been a Windows user most of my life, but decided to make the switch to Linux a few years back.
My experiences thus far are making me reconsider the switch, despite the fact that I've really become opposed to using Windows. I'm curious if I should expect more of the same indefinitely, or if my experiences up to this point are unusual, and I should expect to reach a point where I can just use the OS, instead of spend hours trying to perform every task.
It all started when I downloaded Ubuntu about three years ago. I easily got it installed as a dual boot on a Windows machine. Had to start by allocating disk space in Windows for the new Linux install, prepared a live usb, went through the install, cake. Then I started trying to do stuff, like use a printer. Well HP doesn't make a driver for Linux and, probably, 2-4 hours of research led to me still not having a working printer. I found a driver, but the process to get it installed did not work as it was supposed to. I forget the specifics, but I followed a tutorial to the T, but ran into unforeseen installation issues, and never could figure out how to get the process complete.
After that I started running into issues with the FireFox browser. I've alwasy used FF on Windows with no issues. On Ubuntu it ran slower than dial-up from the mid-90's. Again, 2-4 hours worth of research and several changes to things like FF settings, disabling add-ons, etc., and I still had no fix.
Still I wasn't deterred. Then the dual boot broke. I tried boot repair. No dice. Tried for several hours to get it working. Asked about it on forums, sent in results of boot repair (where I forget) only to get no response, and finally I threw in the towel.
I also struggled to get Bitcoin Armory working, with some very frustrating success, but I didn't count that against Linux, since it was very new software, and I wasn't surprised it was buggy.
Fast forward to today. I've been using Windows for a couple years, with few attempts made to use Linux, except for trying to retrieve a very small amount of BTC from Armory, which consumed about three weekends of my life to finally achieve.
Now I've decided to give it another go. I downloaded UbuntuStudio b/c I'd like to use some of the music production software that comes with it.
Following some tutorials online, I tried to connect my midi keyboard to the computer using QJackCtl. I couldn't remember the issue that I ran into when starting to type this up, so I tried to repeat the process, only to have the program crash during start up, three times. The computer had literally just restarted 20 minutes ago, so I doubt a reboot would work, but maybe. It's almost funny at this point. I'm really disappointed that I can't get the audio software that came with the distro working "fresh out of the box." Maybe with a few hours, or weekends, worth of research?
I've also been getting a system error message every time I login. I posted a query on the Ubuntu forums. That issue has yet to be sorted out.
I hesitate to include this next part, because it involves software that is really still in it's early stages, and I'm trying to be realistic in taking the perspective that any problems I encounter are with the new software, not Ubuntu, but the fact that I had zero problems getting the same stuff to work in Windows just adds to my frustration with Ubuntu.
Everything I'm about to describe is involved with installing monero mining and wallet software. The exception is the AMD drivers needed for the GPU I'm using to mine. Those I expected to work without issue. I followed the directions for installing the AMD drivers for Ubuntu on the AMD website, and the program would not work. After, you guessed it, 2-4 hours of research, I finally, almost by accident, installed an older version of the driver software. Boom, it worked. WTF man?! When I installed the Windows version it took 2 minutes.
Moving on, I tried getting the xmr-stak mining software working. This took me several hours, spread over several days to sort out. Same with the monero-gui wallet, which actually I've only got half-way working. In fact, I've tried installing the monero-gui by two different ways. In the process I've inadvertently got the monerod daemon running, but not the gui. Actually, the monerod daemon starts with the computer and I haven't even started trying to figure out how to turn that off, since what's the point of having it run if I can't use the gui?
In Windows I had all of this up and running in a couple of hours. And in saying that I'm prepared for the "if you like Windows so much then use that!" or "you're just too thick to figure it out!", but I don't like Windows, and I don't think it's a matter of not figuring it out. It seems to me that the reason I've spent dozens of hours just trying to get things to work in Linux is that nearly every time I've tried to do something, there is inevatably some error along the way where following the directions isn't good enough, and sorting out the issue is a feat in and of itself.
I just want to know if this is unusual, or if this is how it's going to go forever if I keep using Linux. Is my experience typical?
TL;DR: I've had a litany of issues and spent countless hours trying to fix them using Linux. Is this rare, and I've just had an unusual experience, or actually pretty common, and I should just accept it as the cost of using an open source OS?

Small form factor for home server and Bitcoin node

Before I start, let me emphasize on the fact that this request is something probably quite unusual for this sub and I apologize if it doesn't belong here. If that's the case, please let me know.

What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
I'm looking for a small, quiet and affordable computer which will run 24/7 in my house. The aim is to make it a personal server and a Bitcoin node (not for mining, just a node).
A Bitcoin node should run on hardware with good endurance, stable internet connection, a large storage and that can run for a long period of time.

What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
300€

When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
Anytime during this summer.

What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
I'm not sure if it's the right place but here are my criteria:

Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
France

If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
I will use this computer as as server so via SSH after the install. I already own some spare monitors and peripherals.

Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
No

Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
As said earlier, I need a large storage for the Bitcoin node. I'm thinking about a 2TB NAS HDD so it can last for a very long time. The NAS variant of HDD is probably the one which suits my needs the most as the disk will be very frequently accessed and will run 24/7.

Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
Mini ATX if possible. I'd prefer a small form factor. The most important part of the case is its protectiveness, the rest is not important.

Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
No, I will install a linux distro.

Extra info or particulars:

I found the Odroid H2 and Odroid HC2 which fit my needs perfectly but they are either sold out, unavailable or have insanely high customs fees. Also I checked Intel NUCs but I'm not sure it is what I need, especially for the price. A Raspberry Pi is not a good choice because of the storage capabilities (connected by USB 2.0) and limited RAM.
I considered building a machine myself but I'm not sure which components to use, and where to buy them. This is why I came here and this is something I'm still open to, if the price is not too high.

Small form factor for home server and Bitcoin node

Hello,

I'm looking for a small, quiet and affordable computer which will run 24/7 in my house. The aim is to make it a personal server and a Bitcoin node (not for mining, just a node). I found your community and thought it would be a good place to ask for some advice on what choices are available to me.

Here are my criteria:
- Decent CPU (I don't need something overly powerful but a snail is not desirable. I'd like something along the lines of a Raspberry Pi, or more, in terms of CPU power.)
- Support for any linux distro (By that I mean: "It can run linux". If there is some config to do I can do it. It will very likely be a 19.04 Ubuntu), no pre-installed OS.
- At least 2GB of RAM (Upgradablility would be a bonus. Buying the RAM separately and installing it myself is of course a possibility)
- Can use the hard drive of my choice (I will buy a 2TB NAS hard drive, 3.5 inches. 2.5 inches are ok too)
- Something quite quiet and which is not too hot when idle (which it will be most of the time)
- Low power if possible
- Because I want the thing to live for a long time, being able to install the OS on the HDD and not on an SD card
- A case protecting the internal components. I don't care if it's pretty or not, I just want it to be protective.
- Has Ethernet support (If it doesn't have wi-fi then it's perfect)
- I don't care about display output and graphical power, I won't install a desktop environment.
- Up to 300€ in total.

I found the Odroid H2 and Odroid HC2 which fit my needs perfectly but they are either sold out, unavailable or have insanely high customs fees. Also I checked Intel NUCs but I'm not sure it is what I need, especially for the price. A Raspberry Pi is not a good choice because of the storage capabilities (connected by USB 2.0) and limited RAM.
I considered building a machine myself but I'm not sure which components to use, and where to buy them. This is still something I'm open to, if the price is not too high.

Entirely new to ltc mining, have some questions

I've done some poking around in tutorials and I have some questions, if anyone would care to answer them.
1 - Is this worth getting into still? I know with btc, it got to the point where the blocks were so hard to find that it really wasn't worth the investment. Are new blocks still being found quickly enough that I can still snatch me up some coins? How many months would it take me to get back my investment, do you think?
2 - This may be impossible to answer, but based on your experiences in your pool, how many ltc could I hope for with 250 kh/s? 1000?
3 - I've seen something about wattage meters to track your energy consumption. How important is that, and where would I get one, and which one do I want?
4 - What are the most popular video cards to use right now? Do I need to care about the motherboard or processor?
5 - What should I look for in a pool? The first one I tried had a bug in the registration, and the second one is down this morning. I finally got cudaminer working (I have an Nvidia video card in my home pc) and left it on overnight, and was not amused to see that it went down at some point and I haven't done any mining.
6 - Do y'all put windows on your mining rigs, or some linux variant? If the latter, which one?
7 - Would you recommend getting a nice video card for my home PC and just using that until I can sell some coins to buy more, or dropping the dough on a 4-card mining system now? This is sort of related to how many ltc people get per month, I guess.
Assuming anyone answers, thanks for the replies! Much appreciated.

Users of Bitcoin Core on Linux must not upgrade to the latest version of OpenSSL

Greg Maxwell's announcement: http://sourceforge.net/p/bitcoin/mailman/message/33221963/
Summary:
There is a problem with the most recent release of OpenSSL which will cause issues for some users of Bitcoin Core on Linux. This is not a critical security issue, but everyone using Bitcoin Core on Linux should read the following information, especially if you're automatically processing Bitcoin payments. The worst-case scenario is that you might accept transactions as confirmed which are later reversed.
You are likely to be affected only if:
If you are affected, then your client might become stuck at a particular block, and you'll have to reindex the block chain to fix it. In some conceivable but unlikely scenarios, you might see incoming transactions as having 6+ confirmations when the transactions are actually invalid. If you are a pool operator, then you could conceivably start mining on a false chain, which would cause you to lose all of your future blocks until you fix this.
If you are using an affected version of Bitcoin Core, you should either make sure that your system OpenSSL does not get updated or shut down Bitcoin Core until an update fixing this (0.9.4) is released in a day or two. If Bitcoin Core is already stuck and showing the "We do not appear to fully agree with our peers!" message, shut it down until an update fixing this is released; when you run that version, you'll have to run it with the -reindex switch.

Transcript of Developer Meeting in Discord - March 29, 2019

Pho3nix Monk3y03/29/2019
Is this unlocked?
oh cool. yes it is
Guess we need an admin to unlock it. Some of our devs cant type in here yet.
@shiggidy @traysi ★★★★★ Can yall unlock this channel?
traysi ★★★★★03/29/2019
Should be open now
bhorn03/29/2019
open!
GhostDogsGhost03/29/2019
heya!
SamzOnline [w1ne]03/29/2019
Woot
theking03/29/2019
Glad to be here.
traysi ★★★★★03/29/2019
@Jeroz can you type now?
Jeroz03/29/2019
Works now
ty
Pho3nix Monk3y03/29/2019
Great. Didn't really have an agenda for this meeting I'm told. Can open it up? Anyone have anything to start?
Bianca_NL03/29/2019
YaY
GhostDogsGhost03/29/2019
testnet voting on messaging bip?
Pho3nix Monk3y03/29/2019
I like it.
@GhostDogsGhost You might be the main "answerer of questions" for this. Not sure where @[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs is.
GhostDogsGhost03/29/2019
anyone know if it's passed? if and when it'd be great to get some usage
Vincent03/29/2019
all good @traysi ★★★★★
Jeroz03/29/2019
Messaging is active on testnet now. The vote passed.
traysi ★★★★★03/29/2019
I'll try to clean up the permissions for this channel to make it simpler for future meetings.
Jeroz03/29/2019
There is no GUI yet to test it.
GhostDogsGhost03/29/2019
sweet -- yeah just rpc for now
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
here
Pho3nix Monk3y03/29/2019
yay
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
So, for messaging. There is not GUI, we really want to test the protocol which you can use fully through the rpc console.
We understand that this limits the number of users that will want to do testing but we wanted to get it out there asap to find bugs
Jeroz03/29/2019
Is there list of commands / little guide on how to get started with them in the console?
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
Also, we wanted to let everyone know that we are going to try and get messaging protocol and restricted assets on mainnet at the same time. This means that the release for messaging might be delayed by a couple weeks. The devs are working really hard to make this happen and hope that the community is willing to wait a little longer for mainnet messaging.
There are commands like sendmessage listmessages and subscribe rpc calls yes
Jeroz03/29/2019
That would mean 1 hardfork instead of 2 right?
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
Exactly @Jeroz
[Master] Roshii03/29/2019
Hello!
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
Also, the Qt for messaging wont be released until after the hardfork, but the Qt for messaging and restricted assets would be in the same release.
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
Hello! Thanks for holding this meeting.
Jeroz03/29/2019
Will dividends also be included to that? @WhaleStreet (BW) (not sure if you are here)
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
Dividends can be released at anytime it is completed as it doesn't require a hardfork
Jeroz03/29/2019
I meant the GUI update
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
For restricted assets, will owners of !uniquename have a grace period to claim $uniquename ?
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
I am not sure on the GUI for dividends.
We are still figuring out if we are going to allow for a grave period or not. I think we are leading to the answer of Yes there will be a grace period.
but we aren't sure yet
SamzOnline [w1ne]03/29/2019
I've been studying and out of the loop of the RVN scene for a long time - is there any chance of someone updating me on what y'all talking about?
Pho3nix Monk3y03/29/2019
We have also been going through and cleaning up issues in GitHub. Tried to clean up tags in there as well. We will probably start going though those on a weekly ->monthly basis to stay ahead of things.
Vincent03/29/2019
community seens to agree !ASSET has exclsuvie on $ASSET
GhostDogsGhost03/29/2019
Silva -- that's open for discussion -- I think the general sentiment is that there should be some preference given to current asset owners
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@SamzOnline [w1ne] We are talking about the roadmap and how the development of the new features are coming along.
SamzOnline [w1ne]03/29/2019
Lovely many thanks
Vincent03/29/2019
what is the justification on only a grace period?
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
Is it possible to reissue a !ownership as a $ownership?
Jeroz03/29/2019
@SamzOnline [w1ne]
https://medium.com/@tronblack/ravencoin-tags-and-restricted-assets-84fe3070a226
https://medium.com/@tronblack/ravencoin-kaaawww-2f72077aece
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@Vincent I don't think is has exclusive rights. More like a first right of refusal for a couple months
Synicide03/29/2019
agree there should be some kind of grace period, or users that originally registered those assets will feel shafted
Vincent03/29/2019
but what is that justification?
if you are building Applein ur garage, you may need a few yrs to go public
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
Issue being assets will cease to be unique with two different types about
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
True.
We aren't sure on what approach will be taken yet
Synicide03/29/2019
should regular and restricted assets share the same 'uniqueness of naming'?
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
Please the community let us know what you think is fair.
This topic will 100% need to be discussed a lot
Vincent03/29/2019
when it was announced, there was a lot of discussion; most seemed to agree
SamzOnline [w1ne]03/29/2019
@Jeroz Many thanks
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
If the consensus is that we shouldn't allow for ASSET! and $ASSET to be issued by different people then we will need to make sure that is the right approach. The code hasn't been written yet.
GhostDogsGhost03/29/2019
Some of this will depend on what we end up pricing the $ASSETS at (burn for issuance)..
Vincent03/29/2019
prcing shouldnt matter imo
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
We need to determine how important unique asset names are, for varying types.
Vincent03/29/2019
should be the owner of the asset name
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org Exactly
push | ravenland.org03/29/2019
hey all, sorry im late :thumbsup:
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
Howdy
Synicide03/29/2019
If someone registers !company123, and starts building a platform for themselves, seems they should be given an option to convert to $company123, and shouldnt have to worry about another party creating $company123
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
They will be given that option
Vincent03/29/2019
indefinately
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
the question is, is that option going to exist for forever, or maybe only 4 months
Vincent03/29/2019
then the worry still exists
Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019
I definitely vote for ! And $ to only be issued by the same people
Synicide03/29/2019
lets say they choose not to, can someone else create $company123? Or is that unqiue name shared?
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
I believe, ideally, a reissuance option would be available at anytime from !ownership
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@Synicide That decision hasn't been made yet
theking03/29/2019
@[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs I do agree that releasing both messaging and restricted assets at same time makes sense so there is only one hard fork. What is the current thinking on tentative timeline before they would both be on main net?
push | ravenland.org03/29/2019
im excited about this memo indication, its useful because it means a buyer of an asset sending rvn can indicate the 'return address' without the 'seller of the asset receiving ravencoin' having to transverse the full vin/vout chain to obtain the source address to dispatch asset to. Is there a timeline for this feature or any documentation on it @[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs ?
Synicide03/29/2019
my 2 cents, they should be a shared pool of unique names. The door is opened for scammers galore if it isnt.
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@theking A couple months atleast.
To make sure it is tested on testnet for long enough
theking03/29/2019
That makes perfect sense!
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@push | ravenland.org It will be on mainnet as soon as it and restricted assets are tested. Is the goal
push | ravenland.org03/29/2019
excellent, i look forward to it
Chill03/29/2019
Thank you for taking the time to bring up the ! and $ ownership issue. It's of extreme importance imo
push | ravenland.org03/29/2019
its gods work your doing there
bitnaive03/29/2019
yeah it seems like any modifiers to the original !NAME should belong to !NAME
DirkDiggler (RVN ded)03/29/2019
I would like to voice concern over the idea of the "grace period".... The idea of a UNIQUE asset name is key to our success. Many of us jumped on names we wanted. This doesn't feel right to need to have yet another name floating around if it's not controlled by the !OWNERSHIP token
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
@Chill NP :p
Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019
Yes please on only 1 hard fork
Chill03/29/2019
unique is unique. I have 510 of them!
Synicide03/29/2019
@DirkDiggler (RVN ded) grace peroid wont matter if the naming pool is shared for uniqueness
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
So, If I own GOOGLE!, and I don't want $GOOGLE, no one should be allowed to own it?
DirkDiggler (RVN ded)03/29/2019
exactly
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
@[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs Ideally, yes
bhorn03/29/2019
that feels right to me
Jeroz03/29/2019
yes
SamzOnline [w1ne]03/29/2019
Interesting
DirkDiggler (RVN ded)03/29/2019
yes
Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019
@[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs I'm good w that
Synicide03/29/2019
that makes the most sense to me. As said, opens the door to scammers if not
Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019
Would add extra value to the ownership token as well
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
If more power is given to !ownership(changing type), more value is added to said asset, by way of design and ability
Vincent03/29/2019
and if you want to covert your assets to restricted yrs from now you will have a logistic nightmare if you have a bunch of owners
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
I feel like, if we give people the option to register the restricted asset $ and they don't want it, that it is only fair that it is up for grabs
bitnaive03/29/2019
maybe no one else should be allowed to issue it but it can be transferred
Vincent03/29/2019
why?
Chill03/29/2019
I really don't think that's fair, to be honest
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
@[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs Unique names are lost, in that case.
And in that way, !ownership loses value by not having the ability to change, if need be
Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019
Yeah I'd rather see the one name issued only forever
bitnaive03/29/2019
that way, if some one wants it. the can contact the owner for it.
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
I think restricted assets have a different use case than regular assets, and they can be frozen.
Vincent03/29/2019
i can buy ravenland and revent push from moving forward with is project (after grace)
DirkDiggler (RVN ded)03/29/2019
seems like from a "code" perspective... the idea of 2 different (but similar names) would be a nightmare as well
Jeroz03/29/2019
Ideally give reissuable the extra option of making it restricted in my mind. I have mixed feelings about tokens traveling around that have the same asset name but are a different type.
Vincent03/29/2019
all his logos would have to change to his new name
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
They not have them remain one in the same? With the ability to change to restricted, should they have to. Though reissuance?
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@Vincent That is why push would have plenty of time to pick up the ravenland restricted asset if he wanted it
Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019
One of our selling points over ETH is that ETH can issue a bunch of the same named assets as long as the contract address is different
Vincent03/29/2019
bbut who says what is enough time
i may need yrs
bhorn03/29/2019
the extra cost could be onerous as well
Chill03/29/2019
when the asset layer was launched, it was billed as being unique names. Be careful in changing this, please.
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
True, that amount of time isn't determined yet, if this is the route that is taken
bhorn03/29/2019
some have many many many assets
Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019
RVN, u issue that name once, it can never be duplicated
DirkDiggler (RVN ded)03/29/2019
where as having just another sub asset type ($RESTRICTED) falls under the same hierarchy already defined
bhorn03/29/2019
and the RVN is not as cheaply replaced
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@Chill Not changing that, just talking about the next asset usecase and how it could be coded is all
Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019
What kind of burn costs are we thinking w issuing restricted assets?
Synicide03/29/2019
@[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs what if push decides not to, then someone else registers it for malicious intent with the same name? Surely the person who built their company on chain doesnt want another token of their company name out there
Vincent03/29/2019
@[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs you seem to be the only one fighting for the garce period
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor Not sure yet, going to be more than regular issuanace is the thought.
Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019
Agreed
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
@Vincent Simply bringing it into conversation, no harm
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@Vincent Not fighting, just keeping an open mind. I just code it, I am not the one making the decision.
push | ravenland.org03/29/2019
hey this is a bit of a random question but i get a lot of subassets send to me, what about wildcard sending via the wallet? like if i wanted to send RAVENLAND/* to an address
Vincent03/29/2019
true but just showing what the concesous is
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@push | ravenland.org Create a request in the issues on github for extra functionality
push | ravenland.org03/29/2019
:thumbsup:
will do mate
Synicide03/29/2019
seems if ! and $ arent shared unique, then companies will have to register both just to protect themselves
Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019
How about a unique asset w re-issuable IPFS?
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
We should be giving more power to !ownership by allowing it the ability to change to $ - Not giving less power to !ownership by duplicating unique names.
Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019
GUNCERT provided a valid use case IMO for unique w re-issuable IPFS
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@Vincent Sure I get that.
Sevvy (not worried til 500sats)03/29/2019
Agrees
If this is a possibility, to give the restricted assets to those who own the normal ones, it ought to be done
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor Looking in on how to do that. The request is on github just don't have the time to implement it yet.
restricted assets, will have to be issued. and the corresponding amount of rvn will be burned for them
push | ravenland.org03/29/2019
it'd be nice to see a ravencoin network swarm, us and mango farms are doing something with that so if anyone else wants to get involved, i think its a worthwhile thing to build the power of the ravencoin ipfs hash network to keep them hashes alive
Sevvy (not worried til 500sats)03/29/2019
Yikes
Ah well
push | ravenland.org03/29/2019
i wrote a programmatic script to scrape all the ipfs files, so i can probably runa simple enough shellscript to ipfs add pin everything from chain
Vincent03/29/2019
plus ravenland sent me a bunch of tokens...they will be worthless now!!! :sunglasses:
push | ravenland.org03/29/2019
:joy:
vincent
one day tho eh
Chill03/29/2019
my 250,000 RVN that were spent on RVN assets are feeling pretty weak at the moment
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@Vincent haha ravenland assets are still assets. They just don't have the ability to freeze then and stop you from trading them
DirkDiggler (RVN ded)03/29/2019
you got to have one ring to rule them all... the Unique Ownership Token does that
SamzOnline [w1ne]03/29/2019
@Chill That puts my 80 to shame!
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@Chill Like I said, no decision has been made yet.
Vincent03/29/2019
@[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs just playing with that one
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@Vincent Yeah, I understand
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
Changing gears alittle, Has any further thought been put into privacy?
push | ravenland.org03/29/2019
a tor network with proxychains could be effectively used to privatize a node
Jeroz03/29/2019
Seems that we need to continue discussions about the asset naming and make a write up about the proposals.
I have a different question:
About metadata and transactions. Tron mentioned that it will be possible to attach metadata to every transaction. It was unclear to me whether he meant every messaging transaction or every regular RVN/Asset transaction.
push | ravenland.org03/29/2019
ive been looking into this a little bit
Synicide03/29/2019
@S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org been wondering that too, and if restricted assets for KYC/AML NEED to be trackable
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org Privacy isn't the main thing ravencoin wants right now. We need to be able to send and trade assets with visibility of amounts and the asset names. Once the main core components are finished, we can start thinking about integration privacy.
push | ravenland.org03/29/2019
as i understand it tor could as a protocol be built into ravencoin itself and distroed as a private tor based connector or hardened in such a way not to leak dns or requests that are not 'tor' proxied .. but you could do this already with some modifications to most linux systems (without the need for a ravencoin release)
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
Understood
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@Jeroz With messaging, all asset transactions can contain a metadata field yes.
Jeroz03/29/2019
RVN too?
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
Not RVN at this time, as that already exists with the OP_RETURN functionality of bitcoin
Jeroz03/29/2019
Yeah I was about to say
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
I dream of one day Ravencoin giving users the ability to protect themselves from state level actors looking to oversee transactions on chain.
[Master] Roshii03/29/2019
What's the subject?
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org That would be amazing, however the dividends and voting require a public ledger in order to send
Synicide03/29/2019
@[Master] Roshii large one is if regular and restricted assets should share unique names, and/or if a grace peroid should be allowed for original owners to register restricted assets
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
So we would need to figure out a way to have that info public and keep privacy
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
Agree'd
Synicide03/29/2019
that was my worry, that it HAS to be public for a lot of uses. Privacy would have to be optional
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
ravencoin was built and is being built to support asset trading. Privacy is important but isn't currently the focus of the dev team.
Synicide03/29/2019
sounds good, focus on our roadmap and can research it more in the future
S1LVA | GetRavencoin.org03/29/2019
Privacy is one of the very lasts subjects brought up in the whitepaper, after all :wink:
Vincent03/29/2019
to bring up an old topic; assets that haven't been reissued, there was talk about lowering the decimal places to reissue; i know not important but if it needed to be in a hard fork; should it be looked at the add to th next?
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
@Vincent I have found a way to do this, however it requires the reissuer to own all assets
Synicide03/29/2019
how would you determine the correct values if lowering decimals? rounding?
Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019
@[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs Yes!
Vincent03/29/2019
correct
nice
Synicide03/29/2019
if they all own, I guess its a non-issue
[Dev-Happy] Blondfrogs03/29/2019
We aren't currently working on that, but I will try and get it into the hard fork release
Vincent03/29/2019
it would be a 1 time option, correct?
Rikki RATTOE Sr. SEC Impresantor03/29/2019
In that event too, ability to reduce total supply as well if u still own every asset created would also be an excellent Option to have

Ethereum / Cryptocurrency Mining on Linux + regular GPU's?

I'm super in the crypto world and today saw a post where someone mentioned mining ETH is still profitable, moreso than bitcoin. I thought about it a long time ago but have never really used my gaming GPU (which is an RX 470) for any coin mining.
I'm not sure if this is exactly the right place to ask for this, but it's hard finding information on this on linux specifically. If it helps, I'm on arch, so I know I could use the ethmining package in the AUR, but I'm also confused on whether open-source vs nonfree drivers would be a problem. Maybe one of y'all would be knowledgeable on it.
I did find this, but it was about it, and he used the amdgpu-pro drivers, whereas my distro (Manjaro) only supports the free ones:

Raspberry Pi 3 - as computer with GPUs connected via USB Risers

The motivation for this post is that I've seen that people have used RPI with usb bitcoin miners or at least something of that sort. And I thought to myself would this be able to work with Ethos as a way of have a more energy efficient miner. I saw that a few posts have referenced the following thread on stack exchange:
https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/12999/connect-a-gpu-into-raspberry-pi
I know that I would have to find a way to power the GPUs, but I was thinking using a server PSU such as described here:
https://www.reddit.com/EtherMining/comments/6cx30t/stop_wasting_your_money_on_expensive_powe
To get around the driver issues couldn't I install ethOS or find a way to make a distro of linux to work even if it's just CLI? The reason I am wondering is that I already have 3 RPI laying around that would be cool to repurpose as mining rigs. I also think it would be a cool learning experience. Thoughts and comments are more than appreciated! (:

Hard Fork Framework

Hard Fork Framework (HFF)
Instead of trying to avoid hard forks at all costs, perhaps we should create a well defined, versioned, framework to embrace hard forks. The framework would provide a relatively easy way to allow anyone to run their own consensus rules. Perhaps this could be done via plugin system?
When a fork occurs, the block-hash (or perhaps some other algorithm, because the block-hash loses entropy as the difficulty increases. Perhaps the hash should be transaction based so that multiple forks could be created per block) of the first block will become its reference "fork-hash". The new fork can then be "named" and referenced as "bitcoin-deadbeef...". The creators of the fork might give their fork a pseudonym such as "Bitcoin Super Duper XT 1000", but this does not need to be handled by the framework. Only the fork-hash is important.
Just like transactions, it would be recommended to wait for the new fork's chain to become at least a certain length before trusting the fork-hash. The number of blocks to wait would depend on the consensus rules of the new fork. (If the new fork changed the average block rate to 30 seconds, you would want to wait for many more blocks to confirm than for a fork with an average block rate of 10 minutes).
Replay attacks could be mitigated by requiring that the fork-hash be included in the transaction (not sure how this might affect the size of the transaction, perhaps there is a clever way to do this?). This would ensure that transactions would only be valid on their respective forks. Or whatever replay prevention technique is deemed fit.
Why would we want this?
  1. Mitigate consensus change / social / stalling attacks. If a re-branded "Bitcoin Super Duper XT 1000" comes along wanting to change the consensus rules to something controversial, the response is simple: "Create a HFF module". The discussion ends there.
  2. The HFF will allow wallets, exchanges and businesses to easily accept new hard forks if they want to. They would simply download the HFF plugin module and tell bitcoind to include/run it. The HFF would provide a well defined API for interacting with forks, so the user's software may not require any changes. (Some forks may require custom API commands, in which case the client software would need to be changed, but that is up to the maintainers of the fork. It is in their best interest to make their fork as compatible as possible)
  3. If there are valid HFF changes that fork X needs, this should be far less controversial as long as it does not inhibit the other forks from functioning normally. Making sure HFF is properly versioned should allow for future innovation while keeping support for existing forks.
  4. Empower users by providing them with an economic way to support their preferred chain. Each exchange will make the decision whether or not to support a new fork. There may end up being hundreds or even thousands of forks so it would only make sense for the exchanges to support the most common. Once an exchange enables support for a particular fork (One of the goals of HFF is to make this easy), users will be able to either sell or buy the new coin. Let the market decide.
  5. Keep miners in line. If miners misbehave, it would be trivial to create a new fork using a new POW algorithm. If there truly is an economic majority opposed to the miners' behaviour, then the misbehaving miners may find themselves mining an economic minority chain. This should be a constant reminder for them that they are not in charge.
  6. Segwit + LN enabled forks may become easily exchangeable. So if a particular merchant has not yet enabled "bitcoin-deadbeef", an intelligent wallet could convert to "bitcoin-3d7ae587" on-the-fly to make the payment.
  7. Creating a fork becomes more like creating a linux distro or any other open source software. The best survive. The weak die. Survival of the fittest.
How is this different from an altcoin?
  1. History is preserved. You will have the same number of coins on each chain. No, this is not inflation because the value of the new coin at the time of the fork is zero. An exchange rate would need to emerge naturally. Preserving the history is important because it allows existing stake holders to vote economically by buying or selling the new coin.
  2. Choosing to support an altcoin takes time and effort. The goal of HFF is to allow businesses, exchanges and users to enable support as easily as possible. E.g "bitcoind -consensus libbitcoinsuperduperxt1000". Or "bitcoind -consensus libpowkeccak" etc.
  3. Most of the code remains the same for all forks. Only the consensus code differs from fork to fork.
Could a HFF plugin expose a security vulnerability which puts other running forks at risk?
This would obviously need to be addressed in the design. Perhaps each fork would run in its own process? Or its own container? Or even its own machine if the user chooses. The goal would be to sufficiently sandbox each fork from each other. Each user should assess the competency of the dev team (Or the actual code if possible) behind the fork before they run it.
Wont multiple forks confuse people?
This will need to be addressed through education. People will call each fork by their friendly name. However, each fork should be referenced using its fork-hash when appropriate. It is likely that only a small handful of forks will have any meaningful relevance.
Is this even possible?
Maybe not. Hopefully the devs can discuss it. (Or even immediately dismiss)
What is the time frame for such a feature?
This would likely take several years to design and implement. It would be a long term goal.

Zeus/Gaw ASIC Setup Guide for Linux/Raspberry Pi

So I recently I became quite interested in mining and cyptocurrencies in general. So interested in fact that I bit the bullet and decided to buy myself a GAW Fury.
I then spent some time doing research on how to set up a GAW or Zeus ASIC on Linux, in particular on a Raspberry Pi, and have found most guides to be awful. The reason they are so bad IMHO is that they assume quite a bit of prior knowledge, either with Linux or mining, and give very little instructions. So I have tried to put together a guide that requires very little prior knowledge.
It is my aim that anyone could get their shiny new asic up and mining in no time using this guide. Anyway, I present...

The Complete Noobs Guide to Setting Up a Zeus or Gaw ASIC on Debian/Ubuntu/Raspberry Pi

Resources

About Cyrptocurrencies and Their Jargon

If you are new to cryptocurrencies and how they work I suggest taking a look at this series of KhanAcademy videos. They are for Bitcoin but the theory is the same. I found them very helpful when it came to understanding what mining actually does and the mechanics of cyrptocurrencies.
Also take a look at sircamm22 his info found here, is great and breaks down a large number of concepts. I slightly disagree with no. 21 regarding preordering. Just exercise common sense.

Linux

If you are new to Linux you could follow along by simply typing in the commands. However I highly recommend taking the time to learn what you are doing. This course is a great place to start.

Computer Setup

By the end of this section you will have your device turned on, fully setup and connected to the internet with.
Note: Commands to be typed into the command line will be displayed like this:
echo Hello World

Desktop/Laptop

For laptops and desktops already running Ubuntu or Debian I will assume you have setup your internet setup as part of the installation.
If not: There are plenty of guides out there and the installation/setup process is very easy. A good place to start for Ubuntu is here.
Now open up a terminal window. Ctrl + alt + t on a standard Ubuntu installation.
If you plan on using this PC without a monitor I would suggest installing an SSH Server.
These commands will be discussed later on in the guide.
sudo apt-get -y install openssh-server
sudo service openssh-server start

Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has put together a great guide in PDF format.
Use NOOBS it will save you a lot of trouble. NB: Some SD cards don't support NOOBs but will work fine if the image is put on using a different method.
Here is a great guide for setting up the Raspberry Pi SD card from Elinux.org. In fact it's a great place to start for anything RPi related. Raspberry Pi hub at Elinux.
Once the SD card is setup you will need to insert it into the Raspberry Pi and boot. Install Raspbian from the NOOBs menu and wait.
Follow this guide by Adafruit for first time setup. You will need to enable SSH Server.
I suggest not starting the desktop on boot. It can be easily run from the command line by typing startx.
Follow this guide by Adafruit to setup your network. Found here. No need to do this if you set up previously in the first time config.
We will also at this point want to setup ssh. Again I will point you to an Adafruit guide.
Once done exit back to a standard command line interface. This can be done in LXDE by using the power off menu located in the bottom right corner.

Miner Setup

Installing BFGMiner

If you want to the Raspberry Pi or PC without a monitor go ahead and SSH into your device.
So now you should be staring at a command line interface whether on the device with a monitor or via SSH.
First things first lets make sure we are all up to date. This will update our package list from the repositories and upgrade them to the newest version. "-y" Will simply say yes to any prompts.
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y upgrade
We are going to need to install some useful tools. Git-core is how we will clone and download BFGMiner from GitHub and Screen allows multiple command line instances and means if we exit out of ssh session or quit Terminal on Ubuntu, BFGMiner will continue to run.
sudo apt-get install git-core screen
We also need to download some other tools/dependencies to ensure that BFGMiner will compile successfully.
sudo apt-get -y install build-essential autoconf automake libtool pkg-config libcurl4-gnutls-dev libjansson-dev uthash-dev libncursesw5-dev libudev-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev libevent-dev libmicrohttpd-dev libc-bin
Ok now change into your home directory.
cd ~
And clone BFGMiner by Darkwinde.
git clone https://github.com/Darkwinde/bfgminer.git
Once the download has completed move into the bfgminer directory.
cd bfgminer
The following steps may take a while.
Now run autogen.sh
sudo ./autogen.sh
You will need to make the configure script execuitable.
sudo chmod +x ./configure
Now configure bfgminer
sudo ./configure CFLAGS="-O3" --enable-scrypt
Now lets make!
sudo make
Install BFGMiner
sudo make install
One more thing...
sudo ldconfig

Running BFGMiner

If you haven't already plug in your ASIC.
Just confirm your system is recognising the ASIC.
lsusb
Its output should look similar to this (no need to type this in):
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 10c4:ea60 Cygnal Integrated Products, Inc. CP210x UART Bridge / myAVR mySmartUSB light
Yep there it is our ASIC listed as device 005. There is no need to install any drivers, unlike in windows, as they come in the kernel.
Now lets actually start BFGMiner.
You will want to start a screen session to ensure BFGMiner doesn't quite when you exit.
"-S" is the option for starting a new screen session. You can replace "miner" with anything you like.
screen -S miner
Now you can run the commands below.
Here is a sample of what you should type. You will need to replace somethings with your own values.
sudo bfgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://URL:PORT -u USERNAME -p PASSWORD --zeus-cc CHIPCOUNT --zeus-clk 328 -S zeus:/dev/ttyUSB0
Where:
URL:PORT is the address and port of the pool you wih to use. Now I won't suggest a pool. I will leave that decision up to you. If you do wish to mine DOGE take a look at this site for a list of pools and comparisons.
USERNAME this is the username you use on the pool. Every pool is different. Check your pool's website for details. PASSWORD same as above. Specific to your pool, not every pool requires one.
CHIPCOUNT this is specific to which ASIC you are using.
For GAWMiner ASIC's:
  • War Machine: 256
  • Falcon: 128
  • Black Widow: 64
  • Fury: 6
For ZeusMiner ASIC's:
  • Blizzard: 6
  • Cyclone: 96
  • Hurricane X2: 48
  • Hurricane X3: 64
  • Thunder X2: 96
  • Thunder X3: 128
Now to make sure you don't stop mining when you exit ssh or terminal. Press:
ctrl + a + d
To come back to the BFGMiner screen simply run:
screen -r miner
You're done!!

Start on Boot

First off you will want to make sure you have BFGMiner running correctly. Ensure you have the miners set up properly and your pool correctly configured.
Start a BFGMiner instance, detailed above.
Once the instance has started and you are happy with how everything is working press "s" on your keyboard to enter the settings menu.
Now press the "w" key. Don't press enter. We want to specify where our config will go. Type:
/home/USERNAME/bfgminer.conf
Substitute USERNAME for your user. On a standard RPI install its pi. On ubuntu it's what you set during the instillation.
Now press the enter key to return back to the main BFGMiner screen. Press "q" on your keyboard to exit BFGMiner. You should now be back in the command line.
Now we want to edit a file called rc.local. Any commands in this file will be executed on boot.
sudo nano /etc/rc.local
Depending on your system this file may already contain some commands. Be careful not to delete them.
After the last command and before "exit 0" type the following on one line:
sudo -u USERNAME screen -d -m sudo bfgminer --config /home/USERNAME/bfgminer.conf
Where USERNAME = your username
Hit ctrl + x then y to save and exit nano.
The above command will create a new screen session and run bfgminer using the config we created earlier. All while as our username so that we can easily reattach.
Lets reboot to ensure it is working correctly:
sudo reboot
Once rebooted and logged in, show all running screen sessions:
screen -ls
Reattach to the session. You only need to use the numbers before the first dot.
e.g Mine looks like: 2480..hostname (13/07/14 12:02:09) (Detached). So I type:
screen -r 2480
Verify everything worked as expected. Then ctrl + a + d to exit.
You have now setup BFGMiner to restart on reboot.

Power Failure

If you are using a Raspberry Pi and it loses power it will automatically reboot on receiving power again.
For standard desktop PCs there is an option in some BIOS/UEFI to turn the computer on when it receives power. Consult your motherboard's manual and manufacturer's website.

Sources

Here is where I got my info from.
And of course /dogemining

Wrap Up

Congrats you've done it. You have managed to successfully get your shiny new asic mining away.
I do plan to make another guide detailing how to setup and use StarMiner a ready to go RPi mining distro.
So I hope this is helpful for you guys. I have seen lots of posts asking the exact same questions again and again and I have tried to answer these as best I can. I am still learning about this stuff so if there is something I have missed or a mistake I have made please tell me.
Anyway good luck. And I'll see you at the moon.
Cheers Frogsiedoodle
Edit 1: Layout and formatting.
Edit 2: Added instructions for screen which I initially forgot.
Edit 3: Removed 1 unneeded dependency
Edit 4: Added section on start on reboot and power failure.

Mining newbie: I want to build a GPU mining rig, what are some recommendations?

So I want to start out on mining what would you recommend for gpu rig...
CPU: AMD or intel GPU: AMD or Nvidia OS: windows or Linux (distro)
Articles say it's not profitable ... I have solar I think I can manage some mining instead of bitcoin maybe other crypto currencies.
I am not concerned about budget yet. Anything else I need to be know?

[UK] Selling loads of assorted parts, 5870s, 6990, processors, motherboards, ram, psus, fpga, tablets, ...

Hi all, I am obviously new here, but have good reputation elsewhere I am quite happy to jump through any hoops that give you additional peace of mind :)
If you live near Margate, UK you are welcome to pick up in person or I will ship (even internationally) as long as you cover the shipping costs.
Got lots of stuff I don't want, the prices I'm listing are just rough guidelines, If you can find any of my stuff cheaper elsewhere I will certainly lower my price. I pretty much did a rough price guestimate using eBay listings. Things with (boxed) mean that I have the original box for them. Some stuff I havn't priced up, just make sensible offers :)
I will accept pretty much any payment method if possible, Paypal, Bitcoin, BACS Transfer, etc. Just ask! :)
Without further ado, things:
£350 - Saphire AMD 6990
£70 - 7 x XFX ATI HD 5870 1GB (boxed) 1
£40 - 4 x Corsair CX600 Builder series 600W power supplies (boxed) 1
£20 - 6 x AMD Sempron 140 2.7ghz processors (Maybe dual core unlockable) (boxed) 1
£5 - 3 x Kingston ValueRAM 2GB DDR3 1066Mhz memory (boxed) 1

Asus P5VD1-X motherboard 7
Pentium 4 3ghz (I think, this hasn't seen the light of day in a while :p) 7
2 x 1GB DDR 400Mhz Adata memory 7
If you are curious about where all this stuff has been / come from, here's some history on everything :)
1) All of this stuff was purchased for bitcoin mining back in May 2011. It's all been faithfully mining in my spare bedroom since then, has turned a nice little profit, and is now a bit too slow to compete with all the other miners, so it's gotta go! photo 1 photo 2
2) These used to be the monitors I used on my main desktop. I decided to upgrade to 2560x1440 monitors, so these are now sitting in the spare bedroom not doing much. They were always great monitors though! photo
3) Used to be the power supply in my main PC, however when I upgraded to a new motherboard I could no longer fit my SLi setup in since the PSU was right up against the bottom of the board and I needed to utilise the bottom slot. Remember that this is the new CPX form factor by Antec, so you'll either need an Antec case or a hacksaw to get it to fit ;)
4) Bought this for bitcoin experimentation but never ended up using it. It got took out of the box and I looked at it, that was about it. Never been used and in the original box with all the things.
5) These are great fun especially for the price, I bought it and used it as a bedside clock for a while (Yay Ubuntu+Conky). I use my Nexus 7 to do this job now though, so this has been relegated to the cupboard. Has a green stuck pixel right on the edge of the screen. You can find lots of info about hacking them here
6) Used to use this as my fan controller but switched to a couple of BitFenix recons because I fan control in software. Looks really cool though. Shame I can't have this and software control really! :P
7) Used to be my old gaming PC, got relegated to being the home theatre PC and then got relegated to the cupboard :P, Hasn't been used in a while but I assume it all still works, will test it before I send it off.
That's all, again feel free to ask me any questions. or negotiate on the prices (especially if your ordering more than one thing). I'm on IRC (Freenode) should you want to IM me. :)

How to choose the appropriate hardware?

Hi all :) I'm new at mining as you can tell by the following questions. I have a pc running a linux distro with a NVIDIA GEForce 740M. I followed this guide and my hash rate is about 1.4MH/s and looking around i see something like rigs with 60MH/s x 2 so I dont think my hardware is appropriate at all. For this reason I started looking around for supplementary HW and I started asking myself "what the hash rate depends on?" is it independent from the altcoin mined? so there actual hash rate reported will be the same for every altcoin I'll decide to mine?
I also found this on amazon but a customer said that now is useless for BTC mining, is it also for ETH? if so what parameters have I to take in consideration?
Thanks you in advance!

Plan B: BAMT Live USB
This option is a last resort, hopefully not necessary. Download BAMT from the link below and "dd" via terminal to USB formatted to FAT32 in gparted. You can install gparted in xubuntu by typing:
sudo apt-get install gparted

Extract the file and locate "litecoinbamt1.1.img"
Put image on 2GB or greater USB formatted to FAT32 by opening terminal and running:
sudo dd if=/path/to/litecoinbamt1.1.img of=/dev/sdX (The "X" is the device name of your usb key. The one you will have seen in gparted, for example "sdb, or sdc, or sdd..." Try to get the right device on the first try. Use raw device *not* a partition.) sudo dd if=(you can drag and drop file into the terminal here to get the path) of=/dev/sdX 
CAN TAKE 15 MINUTES or more.
Perhaps try newer release of BAMT: https://mega.co.nz/#!qZ1TXRxD!Mcw8pkrP4SQE8D7bIfmZZEola01hxVFtbOBg6Cr3Zeo
sudo dd if=/path/to/litecoinbamt1.2.img of=/dev/sdX

Can you use PS3 console to mine Bitcoin, theoretically?.

PS3 being jailbroken can and gives us the ability to install some linux distro. It also has a capability to become a supercomputer. I am trying to start a project where i take advantage of the PS3 cell processor to mine Bitcoin. I want to know if there is something to pursue or if failure awaits me. Thanks for your time
