Anyone care to help out a mining noob?

I've been looking around for a day or two, and I can't find any mining software that suits my needs and limits. Basically, I'm looking for a CPU miner (I know, not ideal, but my graphics card isn't really good enough to be worth it) that doesn't use OpenCL (neither graphics card nor CPU support it) that is compatable with pool mining. Anyone know any miners that would be good for this?

Doge Wallet QT "Dig" feature

Such Noob again...I notice in my wallet there is a "Dig" button, when I click it, it brings up a screen that asks for info to be submitted. Question 1: Do I need to be a member of a pool to get the info asked? Question 2: Will I have to do any sort of fancy programming as I have read regarding "mining". The Doge wallet dig feature shows "solo" digging so much confusion..

Let's Talk About Litecoin Nodes

I decided to write this up because there's a lot of confusion about what a "Node" is. I personally had to do a lot of research to figured this out myself. If anyone would like to suggest edits, I welcome them.
Due to the decentralized nature of Litecoin, sometimes key terms or definitions don’t get standardized. This is particularly problematic for newcomers who want to learn about Litecoin but get confused by variant vocabulary. For example, a Full Litecoin Node to one person may mean something slightly different to another. In light of this, below I suggest a list of terms to help the community use the same definitions and language in regards to Litecoin Nodes.

A Node

Before we talk about Litecoin Nodes, let’s talk about nodes in a broad sense. In a distributed network, the simplest way to define a node would be to say it is a point of intersection or connection with the network. It can act as both a redistribution point or a communication endpoint. This loose definition helps us better understand the different ways a Litecoin Node functions within the Litecoin Network. The following definitions should collectively be considered Litecoin Nodes.

A Full Node

A Full Litecoin Node is an integral component of the Litecoin Network because it validates the blockchain. It does this by downloading a copy of it. It is also capable of relaying transactions and recent blocks, but this isn’t required to be considered a Full Node. Now when you first open up a Full Node client like Litecoin Core, most people are sitting behind a firewall. In this case, your Full Node is limited in the number of connections it can connect to (around 8) and only looks for Super Nodes a.k.a. Listening Nodes. The reason for this is because your Full Node isn’t publicly connectable yet.

A Super Node a.k.a. Listening Node

In a distributed network, a Super Node functions as a highly connected redistribution point as well as a relay station. Therefore this would be an appropriate term to describe a publicly connectable Full Litecoin Node. This means many nodes can connect to it to obtain relayed transactional data and blockchain history. This may require more bandwidth and CPU than a Full Node because of all the extra work it’s doing. These Super Nodes are normally on 24/7 and are reliable focal points for other nodes to connect to. In order to activate this within a Litecoin client functioning as a node, you must make it publicly connectable. One way to do this is to bypass any potential firewalls and/or setup port forwarding. Some manuals suggest running litecoind(litecoin daemon) in the background instead of Litecoin-Qt, but this isn’t necessary.
u/aaron0791 Raspberry Pi guide can either be a super node or a full node depending on whether it is publicly connectable. You can run it with the litecoind as well in order to avoid setting up a GUI with the Raspberry Pi.

A Miner’s Node

Today, miners utilize mining programs separate from Litecoin Core to mine Litecoin blocks. Some miners choose to solo mine and therefore use their own Full Node to maintain a full copy of the blockchain via litecoind. Others choose to pool mine and work together to solve blocks. In this case, the admin of the pool maintains a Full Node while pool miners contribute their hashpower. A third method, though highly discouraged and harmful to the network, is to SPV mine by mining on top of blocks before fully validating them. These SPV pool miners typically trust another mining pool’s Full Node as a reference to build on top of. In light of this, a Miner’s Node can be further subcategorized as either a Solo Miner’s Full Node or a Pool Miner’s Full Node.

A Simplified Payment Verification(SPV) Client a.k.a. Thin Client a.k.a. Light Wallets

SPV clients like Loafwallet (the Litecoin App for smartphones) are not Full Nodes because they don’t download the blockchain. SPV clients do this by ensuring your transactions are put in a block and then confirm that other blocks are being added to it. Therefore in the loosest sense, an SPV Client may fit the criteria of a node. However, they don’t do much to support and validate the distributed trustless ledger of Litecoin. Instead, they store just copies of all the headers of all the blocks in the blockchain that are taken from other Super Nodes. Therefore, SPV clients are unable to verify any transactions in the chain because they don’t have access to it. In this way, they function as communication endpoints as they are are unable to relay transactions or blockchain data. Additionally, it is important to put your own full nodes behind them to securely use SPV clients as wallets.

Specialized “Edge Routing” Nodes

Other types of nodes exist where Full Nodes are stripped of its wallet and mining capabilities. Entities such exchanges and merchant payment processors then build on top of these specialized “edge routing” nodes.

Conclusion

Above, I’ve briefly described the various roles a Litecoin Node can have. I’ve also included a broad overview of the necessary steps a user would need to take to use Litecoin Core in these roles. Hopefully by providing this list of terminology, it will empower users to understand what exact role they are playing in the network and to inform them of the steps they can take if they want to play a different one.

Start Here for Much Wallet WOW!

EDIT 2017-02-10: A word about Nodes

There is a discussion about nodes that came up today, where it seems I'm discouraging people from running the full QT/Core client. Yes and No. What I'm trying to make sure people understand is how things work, and that it is NOT mandatory to run a client in order to use Dogecoins (and yes, I realise that browser-based tools like coinb.in and wallet sweepers are 'clients' by strict definition).
That said, more nodes is absolutely a good thing for the network. Preferrably full nodes. How do you run a full node? Just run Core/QT and open up Port 22556 on your router so it can connect to more than 8 peers. What will it cost you? You need your machine to be on 24/7/365, you need enough storage for the full blockchain (currently about 20Gb. Bitcoin is over 120Gb) and enough bandwidth to keep it in sync and share blocks with peers. A couple of Gb a month, most likely. This is best done with a desktop on a wired broadband link. Or maybe a hosted VM in the cloud. :)

EDIT 2017-01-09: Wallets WITHOUT Clients

Since I started helping people on /BitcoinBeginners, I'm getting a lot of questions about how to use wallets without running clients or trusting third parties. So here are a couple of resources that will make that possible, and not just for Dogecoin:
Multi-Coin Wallet Generator Now supporting 129 currencies! Coinb.in Start by setting the currency, found in the gear wheel in the Broadcast tab. Dogecoin Wallet Sweeper Redeem 'paper' wallets containing up to about 100 UTXOs. Bitinfo Charts My favourite block explorer, handles a bunch of cryptos.
Using these resources, it is possible to hold, receive and spend coins in various currencies, without having to run QT or a 'lite' client. You can also download and run the pages on your own device.

EDIT 2016-11-23: SEMANTICS about MINING! :P

Even though there is already a section on mining below, it has been suggested given the huge number of posts on the subject that this needs to be made clearer. Since people get their panties in a twist over the word 'dead', lets change that...

MINING IS DEAD!

MINING DOGECOIN IS UNPROFITABLE!

Put simply, there is no way to mine Dogecoin and make a profit because of the massive hashpower provided by industrial-scale Litecoin miners. Mining Doge directly stopped being viable when our hashrate exploded with the introduction of AuxPoW. Mining with CPU's and GPU's died when ASICs were introduced. And mining with a laptop WILL kill your laptop and cost you a fortune to repair or replace. Mining Litecoin with an exchange that also mines Doge and others will earn less than the electricity consumed, and you won't recover your costs. Probably ever, but certainly not in any reasonable time.
Mining other currencies may be a thing, but that's beyond our scope here. This is /Dogecoin, not /GetRichMiningCryptos after all. If you want to mine the newest scamcoin for fun and profit, look elsewhere for advice. :/
Oh, and most important:

READ BEFORE YOU POST!

At any given time, there are half a dozen posts on the frontpage just like the one you're about to write, where the answers have already been given. Read them. Don't make people waste their time repeating themselves because you were too lazy to bother reading stuff. :P
So there I was, having a quiet Sundy arvo bludge, as you do, when 42points turned up on Facebook and asked me to write a new sticky post for /dogecoin. Why would he do this, when he should be having a bludge himself, I hear you ask? Well, seems he was doing exactly that, and wanted to fob off the work he’s too slack to do himself. ;) Ah well, being a sucker for punishment, I’ll grudgingly oblige I guess.
OK, first things first.

EDITS:

From peoplma
I was wondering if you could add just a couple things. A link to the coinomi android wallet, it's probably the best one out there. And a sentence somewhere along the lines of "if you need help with any dogecoin software you are welcome to make a post, but PLEASE include your OS, version number of the client, and any relevant transaction IDs that you are willing to share" if you can fit that in somewhere.
Also, if you want to link to Prohashing, I'm pretty sure it's the only Scrypt mining pool that will actually pay out in doge. The others I know of pay out in litecoin or bitcoin. And it's a profit switching multipool, so gives a better return than just mining ltc/doge.
And there's these two wiki articles I thought would be helpful to link /dogecoin/wiki/technical for those technically minded newbies or intermediate users who want to dig a little deeper. And maybe a link to /dogecoin/wiki/dogecoincoreguide next to the link for dogecoin core.
From pts2002
Finally a proper sticky post! Here's some other stuff you could add:
zpool.ca mining pool - You can get paid in pretty much any coin, and you can mine in multiple algos (currently mining lyra2v2 with my GPU). Doing about 500Ð/day
shapeshift.io exchange - My favourite exchange, quick and easy. No registration required!
Also, you should add some blockchain explorers!
chain.so - Support for bitcoin, litecoin and doge.
dogechain.info - Official blockchain explorer. Includes a wallet (already mentioned). Live update currently not working (?)
EDIT: Here's another thing I found!
preev.com currency value calculator - Easy way to check the value of your dogecoins (or bitcoins, or litecoins, or peercoins)!

such beginner shibe thread wow how to get coin

 how to shibecoin v rich in minutes much instruct so simple any doge can do 

START HERE

UPDATE 1/21/14: I'm not updating this guide anymore. Most of the steps should still work though. See the wiki or check the sidebar for updated instructions.
Before you do anything else, you need to get a wallet. Until there's a secure online wallet, this means you need to download the dogecoin client.
Now open the client you just downloaded. You'll be given a default address automatically, and it should connect to peers and start downloading the dogechain (aka blockchain in formal speak). You'll know because there will be a progress bar at the bottom and at the lower right there should be a signal strength icon (TODO: add screenshots).
If you've waited 2 or 3 minutes and nothing is happening, copy this:
maxconnections=100 addnode=95.85.29.144 addnode=162.243.113.110 addnode=146.185.181.114 addnode=188.165.19.28 addnode=166.78.155.36 addnode=doge.scryptpools.com addnode=doge.netcodepool.org addnode=doge.pool.webxass.de addnode=doge.cryptopool.it addnode=pool.testserverino.de addnode=doge.luckyminers.com addnode=doge.cryptovalley.com addnode=miner.coinedup.comdoge addnode=doge.cryptoculture.net addnode=dogepool.pw addnode=doge.gentoomen.org addnode=doge.cryptominer.net addnode=67.205.20.10 addnode=162.243.113.110 addnode=78.46.57.132 
And paste it into a new text file called dogecoin.conf, which you then place into the dogecoin app directory.
Now restart your qt client and the blockchain should start downloading in about 1-2 minutes.
Once it finished downloading, you're ready to send and receive Dogecoins!

GETTING COINS

Decide how you want to get Dogecoin. Your options are:
I'll go into detail about each of these. I'm currently writing this out. I'll make edits as I add sections. Suggestions are welcome.

MINING

Mining is how new dogecoins are created. If you're new to crypto currencies, read this. To mine (also called "digging"), a computer with a decent GPU (graphics card) is recommended. You can also mine with your CPU, but it's not as efficient.

GPU MINING

These instructions cover only Windows for now. To mine, you'll need to figure out what GPU you have. It'll be either AMD/ATI or Nvidia. The setup for both is approximately the same.

Step One: Choose a pool

There's a list of pools on the wiki. For now it doesn't really matter which one you choose. You can easily switch later.
NOTE: You can mine in two ways. Solo mining is where you mine by yourself. When you find a block you get all the reward. Pool mining is when you team up with other miners to work on the same block together. This makes it more likely that you'll find a block, but you won't get all of it, you'll have to split it up with others according to your share of the work. Pool mining is recommended because it gives you frequent payouts, because you find more blocks. The larger the pool you join, the more frequent the payouts, but the smaller the reward you get.
Over a long period of time the difference between pool and solo mining goes away, but if you solo mine it might be months before you get any coins.

Step two: Set up pool account

The pool you chose should have a getting started page. Read it and follow the instructions. Instructions vary but the general idea is:
When you're done with this, you'll need to know:

Step three: Download mining software

For best performance you'll need the right mining software.
Unzip the download anywhere you want.

Step four: Set up miner

Create a text file in the same folder as your miner application. Inside, put the command you'll be running (remove brackets).
For AMD it's cgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://: -u -p
For Nvidia it's cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://: -O :
Substitute the right stuff in for the placeholders. Then on the next line of the text file type pause. This will let you see any errors that you get. Then save the file with any name you want, as long as the file extension is .bat. For example mine_serverName.bat.

Step five: Launch your miner

Just open the .bat file and a command line window should pop up, letting you know that the miner is starting. Once it starts, it should print out your hash rate.
If you now go to the pool website, the dashboard should start showing your hashrate. At first it'll be lower than what it says in the miner, but that's because the dashboard is taking a 5 minute average. It'll catch up soon enough.
NOTE: A normal hashrate is between 50 Kh/s up to even 1 Mh/s depending on your GPU.

You're now mining Dogecoins

That's it, nothing more to it.

CPU MINING

CPU mining isn't really recommended, because you'll be spending a lot on more on power than you'd make from mining Dogecoin. You could better spend that money on buying Dogecoin by trading. But if you have free electricity and want to try it out, check out this informative forum post.

Trading

Trading has been difficult so far, but Dogecoin just got added to a few new exchanges. If you don't have a giant mining rig, this is probably the best way to get 100k or more dogecoins at the moment. I'll write up a more complete guide, but for now check out these sites:

Faucets

Faucets are sites that give out free coins. Usually a site will give out somewhere between 1 and 100 Dogecoin. Every site has its own time limits, but usually you can only receive coins once every few hours, or in some cases, days. It's a great way to get started. All you do is copy your address from the receive section of your wallet and enter it on some faucet sites. Check out /dogecoinfaucets for more. If you go to each site on there you might end up with a couple hundred Dogecoin!

Begging

This method is pretty straightforward. Post your receiving address, and ask for some coins. Such poor shibe. The only catch is, don't do it here! Please go to /dogecoinbeg.

Tips

At the moment there are two tip bots:
Other redditors can give you Dogecoin by summoning the tip bot, something like this:
+dogetipbot 5 doge
This might happen if you make a good post, or someone just wants to give out some coins. Once you receive a tip you have to accept it in a few days or else it'll get returned. Do this by following the instructions on the message you receive in your inbox. You reply to the bot with "+accept". Commands go in the message body. Once you do that, the bot will create a tipping address for you, and you can use the links in the message you receive to see your info, withdraw coins to your dogecoin-qt wallet, see your history, and a bunch of other stuff.
As a bonus, so_doge_tip has a feature where you can get some Dogecoins to start with in exchange for how much karma you have. To do this, send the message "+redeem DOGE" to so_doge_tip. You'll need to create a tipping account if you don't have one.
If you want to create a tipping account without ever being tipped first, message either of the bots with "+register" and an address will be created for you.

What is BiblePay Evolution? https://www.reddit.com/BiblePay/comments/bifvpk/biblepay_evolution_what_is_it/
Windows Guide: 1. Download 32 or 64 bit .exe from https://www.biblepay.org/wallet/ 2. Double Click / Run .exe file and step through Install process 3. Run BiblePay 4. Click Tools >> One Click Mining, (Or set up mining manually with steps a through d below)
     a. Open File Explorer, in address bar type: %appdata%      b. Press Enter      c. Go to BiblepayEvolution folder      d. Open biblepay.conf file for editing, add lines and Save
addnode=node.biblepay.org gen=1 genproclimit=1 
NOTE: addnode is used to give the wallet a starting node to connect to and sync with gen=1 turns on mining by default when the wallet is opened genproclimit=1 sets number of mining threads to 1 by default

5. Close BiblePay and Run it again 6. In BiblePay, go to Tools menu, Click Debug Console 7. Type these commands into the debug console:
getinfo getmininginfo help 
NOTE: getinfo will show you what block number your wallet is currently on and the version number getmininginfo will show you how many threads are running and how much mining hash you have help will show you all the other commands you can use

Threads: 8. To change number of threads to use up for mining
a. Edit %appdata%/BiblepayEvolution/biblepay.conf file: Find with File Explorer or inside the wallet go to Menu >> Tools >> Open Wallet Configuration File
genproclimit=X 
and restart BiblePay -or- b. Menu >> Tools >> Debug Console >> Type command:
setgenerate true X 
(Replace X with the number of threads you want to use Open Task Manager to view CPU usage)

Using the Pool:
NOTE: To use the pool you must now use the external miner, not the wallet miner https://whitewalr.us/2019/biblepay-nomp-pool-mining.html
  1. Set up an account on pool website: https://pool.biblepay.org/
  2. Create Worker Username(s) - Workers tab >>> Add (NOTE: Your Worker Username needs to be unique)
  3. Enable pool and add Worker Username in %appdata%/BiblepayEvolution/biblepay.conf file, add these lines:
    pool=https://pool.biblepay.org workerid=insertWorkerUsernameHere
4. Restart BiblePay
How to Withdraw Coins From Pool? The pool holds onto your coins, go to "Account" >> "Withdraw" to withdraw your coins In your BiblePay Wallet go to "File" >> "Receiving Address" and you can right click and copy the address and paste it into the Pool's Withdraw screen as the "Destination Address", then click the "Withdraw" button and the coins will be sent from the Pool to your Wallet
Setup Auto-Withdraw Navigate to Account >>> Account Settings >>> Verify your BBP Receiving Address >>> Click Authorize-Auto-Withdraws
Why use a Pool? As the network hash rises (as more miners are mining), it can take longer and longer to solve a block, by using the pool, everyone works together with all of their hash power to solve blocks, and the reward gets split between everyone who contributed based on how much they contributed in hash.
With solo mining (not using the pool) it may take 1 month to finally solve a block and get large BBP reward, with pool you can get small frequent BBP rewards every ~30 minutes. (BBP meaning BiblePay coins)

How to Update: Download exe from biblepay.org and install again, your wallet will stay intact

Backup:
Your wallet.dat stores your private keys that contain the access to your coins, this file is backed up every 24 hours in the backups folder, We also recommend that you save a copy of this file in other places, like a flash drive
Learn More about Backing Up your Wallet.dat https://www.reddit.com/BiblePay/comments/7lksp4/backup_walletdat/

FAQ
QUESTION: How long does it take for coins to mature? If you're solo mining, the coins become mature after ~100 blocks. If you're using the pool, they become mature after 24 hours
QUESTION: How do I know if I am currently mining? In your wallet >> In Top left Menu select "Tools" >> Click "Debug Console" Type in the command: getgenerate If it returns true, mining is turned on command: getmininginfo Will show how much "hashps" (hashing) your pc is doing, "genproclimit" will show how many mining threads you are using "poolmining" will be show value of true if you are successfully mining on the pool

./biblepay-cli stop cd ~/.biblepayevolution/ vi biblepay.conf addnode=node.biblepay.org gen=1 genproclimit=1 
Escape Key + : (Colon Key) + w + q + Enter (saves file and quits)

addnode --- adds a node to the list of nodes to connect to gen=1 --- turns on mining genproclimit --- sets number of threads to use when mining

Run BiblePay again and fully sync with network
cd ../biblepay-evolution/src ./biblepayd -daemon ./biblepay-cli getinfo 

USEFUL COMMANDS
./biblepay-cli help ./biblepay-cli getaccountaddress "" ./biblepay-cli getinfo ./biblepay-cli getmininginfo ./biblepay-cli setgenerate true 8 ./biblepay-cli sendtoaddress "insertAddressHere" 777 "" "" true ./biblepay-cli stop ./biblepayd -daemon top #CPU usage q to quit 

MINING THREADS: To change number of threads to use up for mining
a. Edit home/yourusername/.biblepayevolution/biblepay.conf file:
genproclimit=X 
and restart BiblePay -or- b. Menu >> Tools >> Debug Console >> Type command:
setgenerate true X 
(Replace X with number of threads Use top command to view CPU usage)

POOL
NOTE: To use the pool you must now use the external miner, not the wallet miner https://whitewalr.us/2019/biblepay-nomp-pool-mining.html
  1. Set up an account on pool website: https://pool.biblepay.org/
  2. Create Worker Username(s) - Workers tab >>> Add
  3. Enable pool and add Worker Username in ~/.biblepayevolution/biblepay.conf file, add these lines and save:
    pool=https://pool.biblepay.org workerid=insertWorkerUsernameHere
4. Restart BiblePay
./biblepay-cli stop ./biblepayd -daemon 
Setup Auto-Withdraw Navigate to Account >>> Account Settings >>> Verify your BBP Receiving Address >>> Click Authorize-Auto-Withdraws

UPDATE:

### Turn off/stop BiblePay
cd /home/yourname/biblepay-evolution/src ./biblepay-cli stop 

### Pull down latest Biblepay code and build it
cd /home/yourname/biblepay-evolution git pull origin master sudo make 

### Turn BiblePay back on and check version number
cd src ./biblepayd -daemon ./biblepay-cli getinfo ./biblepay-cli setgenerate true 8 

UPDATE IN ONE COMMAND:
./biblepay-evolution/src/biblepay-cli stop ; cd && cd biblepay-evolution/ && git pull origin master && sudo make && cd src && ./biblepayd -daemon && sleep 90 && ./biblepay-cli getmininginfo 
Note: the ";" says do this after, regardless of the outcome Note: && says do this after only if previous command finished with no errors

SPEED UP COMPILE:
To speed up the compile time, add -j4 or -j8 after make. This way it compiles using 4 or 8 threads instead of just 1.
./configure LDFLAGS="-L${BDB_PREFIX}/lib/" CPPFLAGS="-I${BDB_PREFIX}/include/" sudo make -j8

After NiceHash hack yesterday, I came up with this idea of a multicurrency GUI miner. Posting it here for discussion.

MultiHash - A multicurrency round-robin easy-to-use crypto miner

I will be honest, my first serious attempt at altcoin mining was using Minergate. I thought it was very cool how it could automatically determine what currency to mine from a pool of multiple currencies. Then as I started doing more research and started trying out different miner software to compare different stats and customizability, I realized Minergate was basically using all of my CPU and showing me less than half the number of hashes per second I can get using only 50% of my CPU. I stopped using Minergate and started using individual miner software per altcoin, even sometimes switching between two miners of the same currency, just to donate the devs who have worked hard for making his mining software. But it was kind of a redundant process everytime I wanted to try out some different configuration and version or even a new alternate mining software. Enter NiceHash. My life kinda changed, I became lazy. I'd just click start and forget. It brought the convenience of mining to an average user's reach. I really loved NiceHash. I thought their idea was unique and really cool. But after the latest hack, I think there should be an alternative to NiceHash, for the ones who want to mine different altcoins. I have not thought about it very thoroughly as I probably lack the required all the knowledge, but I've come up with a concept I'd like to share with the community.
MultiHash (I could not come up with a better name, feel free to change it to whatever you want), in principle, will be a little different from what NiceHash was. It is more like a convenient way to configure and mine using the individual mining software for different currencies in their respective pools. Here is how I think it'll work:

The Framework:

The following 3 bodies need to work together to make this work: 1. The MultiHash GUI: * Preferably made using a cross-platform toolkit like Qt (preferred) or Electron. * Simple setup requires 1 BTC address. Advanced setup can be done for per currency wallets. * An inbuilt interface for benchmarking all the supported mining software. * Option to auto mine the most profitable currency within user selected time frame. * Option to mine user selected currencies in a round-robin or fixed schedules. * Show detailed pool stats * [Advanced] adding custom pool address * [Advanced] adding custom miner with their own config file * Extras 2. The Pools: * All pools selected should have a proper API which provides user stats like balance, hashes etc. * At first 4-5 pools per currency should be preconfigured in MultiHash. * Extras 3. The Exchange: * Proper API to do the transaction with the MultiHash GUI. * Proper API to generate/access wallet address for each currency. * Extras 

Detail Workflow:

1. The user installs the MultiHash GUI and provides his bitcoin address. * Advanced users may skip and add their own currency wallet address if they don't want to get paid in BTC 2. The MultiHash GUI generates corresponding other currency wallets in the exchange. (registration may be required?) * Not required if the user opted for per currency wallet of their own. 3. The auto mining will mine profitable currency as per users hardware benchmarks. * Advanced users may select what to mine and the pool to mine in. * Pools might be switched depending on the ratio of the hash power of the pool and total hash power of the whole coin network. or Roundrobin. * Pools will provide balance, hashes submitted, current pool hash rate data etc. through their API. 4. The pool will pay to the exchange wallet. the user can see his exchange balance in MultiHash GUI separately, from his pool balance. * Pool pays directly to user wallet if the user opted not to use the exchange. 5. The user chooses to convert all currency to bitcoin. 
I am just an average user interested in crypto. I am also not saying people should not use NiceHash (I probably won't anymore myself). I had a little bit of free time, so I decided to write down my thought. It may very well be a dumb idea, or maybe there are complexities in the process I don't know about. So please take this as just an idea and provide your feedback if you think something needs a correction. Also, if someone is interested in making this project a reality please let me know. I'd like to be a part of the journey.

Taler is based on blocking technology and Lyra2z algorithm, that is, distributed decentralized crypto currency, which does not have a single emission center and centralized management.
https://preview.redd.it/zg6dkv68b0g21.png?width=1901&format=png&auto=webp&s=79f6ba2510bef30a65e6a877f653bf5c2b791e69
● Starting the network - 09/09/2017
● PoW/PoS algorithm - Lyra2z● Issue - 23,333,333 coins● Unit time - 1 minute● Remuneration - 7 TLR coins● Mining Hardware - CPU, GPU, PoS● Difficulty adjustment - every block● Atomic swaps● Segwit & Lightning● Replay protection● Unique address format Bech32
\* Premine is gradually distributed as a starting working capital to a business ready to take a coin as payment for its goods and services.All business partners will be added to the Taler Ecosystem. The list is available on the websites and will be constantly updated.
Briefing:
Viability, integrity of the Taler system, transactions inside the system and the issue of new coins are provided by the computer network of Taler users themselves.Taler is the money of the new time, but at the same time it is a non-commercial project, in the sense that its creators do not receive direct personal benefits. The creators of the Taler system aimed this crypto currency for its use by private individuals, as well as Belarusian small and medium-sized businesses.
WELCOME FROM TALER TEAM:
Welcome Bitcoin community and Bitcointalk audience! So, it happened! We did it - launched the first Belarusian crypto currency, which we called Taler. They were named in honor of the monetary unit, which had circulation on the Old Belorussian lands in the "golden age" of our homeland - during the time of the Grand Duchy and Rzeczpospolita.
We created the first independent crypto currency in Belarus. Which is able to attract investment, the flow of capital into the country, thereby it will help develop private and public business. Implementing instant and virtually free transactions - will facilitate the collection of funds for educational and social programs.
POSITION OF CRYPTO-CURRENCIES IN THE COUNTRY (OFFICIAL INFORMATION):
Belarus legalized crypto-currencies and mining without taxes.
President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko on December 21, 2017 signed a decree "On the development of the digital economy", the key idea of ​​which is legalization and support of operations with crypto-currencies, as well as mining and block-building technology at the state level.
The decree allows trade in crypto-currencies and their circulation in everyday life in Belarus. Individuals will be able to store, change, buy, donate, bequeath, mine, and also exchange crypto-currencies and tokens for fiat currencies. At the same time it is determined that mining, buying and selling of tokens, carried out by natural persons, do not relate to entrepreneurial activity. To declare crypto-currencies and incomes from operations with them Belarusians also it will not be necessary. Yurlitsa will be able to issue their own tokens through resident companies of the Belarusian High-Tech Park, that is, to conduct an ICO campaign in Belarus, it is enough to find a partner-resident of the HTP. Registration of a company in the country is not required. Also, they will be able to buy and sell tokens through crypto-exchange exchanges.
In addition to the issues of crypto-currency, the decree highlights provisions that should simplify the work of the IT sector in the country. For example, HTP residents are allowed to hire foreign citizens without permits, and the founders and employees of the park's residents themselves can enter Belarus without visas. The document establishes a number of tax incentives for the IT company, exempts company fees that represent advertising services for HTP residents, which is expected to simplify cooperation with Google, Facebook and other companies.To become a resident of the HTP, according to the decree, companies that are engaged in training neural networks, the development of artificial intelligence, crypto-currencies and mining, as well as advertising on the Internet and e-sports.Residents of HTP will be able to perform the following actions related to the turnover of tokens and crypto-currencies:
● Provide services for the organization and conduct of ICO, including promotion and advertising;
● Organize cryptographic exchanges;
● Organize crypto-exchangers;
● Mine;
● Act as investment funds;
● Conduct your own ICO.
During the next five years - until January 1, 2023 - many transactions with tokens will not have to pay taxes. So, you will not have to pay VAT when transferring the rights to tokens to other persons (including foreign organizations), the profit tax for exchanging one token for another is also not payable. Revenue from the exchange is also exempt from taxes. In addition, the income of individuals from the implementation of authorized transactions with tokens is not subject to income tax from individuals. HTP residents are also given the right to use smart contracts.
PROMOTION OF THE TALER IN BELARUS
The first task is to form a community around the Taler system, which, in turn, will promote the Taler in all spheres of life of the Belarusians. The mechanism of introducing Talers into everyday use through a system of loyalty, supported by private businesses. In a sense, this can be called a "consumer mining", because with the help of consumption, customers can receive a reward - coins of a Taler. And the more such people, the more businesses that connect to the "Taler" system. And the more demand for Talers, as businesses use Talers to charge customers, the higher the rate of the Taler itself. In turn, the higher the rate - the more the consumer strives to use the services of those businesses that are accrued by Talers. So Taler is able to become a real driver of consumption.

[Guide] No hardware to mine? How to net 6,000+Ð/day using Windows Azure

Inspired by lleti 's free guide for using Amazon Web Services. However, from what I understand due to rental costs, it is more efficient to buy doge directly than use AWS. This guide is based on utilizing the $200 credit that comes with the Windows Azure cloud computing free trial, so you will not pay anything.
This is targeted at shibes with poor hardware that can only mine 50-200 doge per day, but it will work for everyone.
Disclaimer: Doge rate is an estimate based on current difficulties and market. Windows Azure trial may be US only (?)
Overview / How it works
You will not be mining doge directly with this method. Mining doge effeciently requires a GPU, which aren't found in traditional servers. Instead, we will be using the powerful CPUs provided with Windows Azure servers to mine a CPU based crypto-currency, such as QuarkCoin or SecureCoin, and convert those to doge.
Steps
1) Install your QRK or SRC wallet
Ideally if you are reading this, you have installed a dogecoin-qt wallet for yourself before. We will need to do the same for either QuarkCoin or SecureCoin. This is the wallet where will will send the coins you mine with your Windows Azure servers.
These are not the only CPU coin options, but QRK and SRC are very similar (same hash function) and simple to mine.
Once you have installed the wallet, it should look very similar to your DogeCoin wallet. If you have trouble downloading the blockchain ('out of sync'), look at these threads respectively to see which nodes you need to add to your config file. Config files are located at C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\CoinName.conf on Windows.
2) Set up a mining pool account
If you have joined a mining pool for DogeCoin, it will be a very similar experience for other alt coins. See the following bitcointalk threads which have a list of mining pools:
If you would like a pool recommendation, I can recommend src.coinmine.pl and qrk.coinmine.pl; this is from personal experience, I am not affiliated with them.
Once you are logged in you should also create 3 workers, as we will be setting up 3 servers, one for each server. So you should have 3 worker names, and a password set up for each worker.
3) Sign up for Windows Azure free trial
Link: www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/free-trial/
You will have to provide a valid credit card and verify your account with a cell phone so they know you are a real person. This is a Microsoft product so they are reputable. Once you sign up, you will receive a $200 to use in 30 days. Remember to cancel when your credits are running out so they don't charge you.
4) Create Windows Server instances
I would recommend you watch this video which walks you through the UI of the Windows Azure management site to set up the virtual machines we need. Essentially we are going to do the following:
Thus we have a total of 20 CPU cores to mine QRK / SRC with. We want the the most CPU power we can get without excessively burning our $200 credit. That's why 2008 R2 is used, and only 3 instances of it.
5) Remotely connect to servers and download miner
This section is also covered in the video from section 4, watch it for a visual walkthrough.
Once the servers have been initialized on Microsoft's end, we should be able to access them under 'Virtual Machines' at www.manage.windowsazure.com. You should see each host name and a status, and when selected there should be an additional 'Connect' button - click it.
You should now be prompted to download a .rdp file. Download this for each of your 3 virtual machines to a folder you will remember. You will open this .rdp file and use the login credentials you previously specified to connect to each server.
Once you are remotely connected, you should see the desktop. Open up the first icon on the taskbar that looks like a server, this is your server manager. We need to open up the 'Configure IE ESC' setting that's visible on this pane. Make sure 'Off' is selected for both admins and users on the IE ESC configuration.
Now, open up the IE browser and navigate to https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9cvOfoOekSdVzZZcThLZHg4bjA/edit. Press Ctrl + S to download the entire zip to the desktop, and un-zip it.
6) Configure and start miner
Again, this is pretty much covered in the video from section 4, if you prefer watching.
You should now have a folder on your server's desktop named quark-v2_w64. This is the miner for both QRK and SRC. We are going to be using minerd64_sse4.exe. Create a shortcut to minerd64_sse4.exe within the same folder. We now need to add the parameters for your miner.
Right click on your minerd64_sse4.exe shortcut -> Properties. Look at the target field, it should look like this:
C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\quark-v2_w64\minerd64_sse4.exe
We are going append the following format to this target field
-a quark -t 8 -o stratum+tcp://src.coinmine.pl:6020 -u user.worker -p password
-a: algorithm, both SRC and QRK use 'quark'
-t: number of cores (so either 8 or 4 for our purposes)
-o: mining pool information (url and port).
-u: account you have for your mining pool, then a period, then a worker name
-p: password that you created for the worker in step 2
So here is an example of what the target field of your shortcut should look like when you are done:
C:\Users\Nexic\Desktop\quark-v2_w64\minerd64_sse4.exe -a quark -t 8 -o stratum+tcp://src.coinmine.pl:6020 -u Nexic.worker1 -p pass1
7) Profit!!
If you set up your miners correctly on each Windows Server VM (I prefer to assign a separate worker to each one), you should be able to run them and see an output like this: http://i.imgur.com/3lECqSz.png. You can close your remote sessions without interrupting it.
How do you get the doge, you ask? Well, using the above setup I have earned 10 SecureCoins in the past 2 days. These are worth 0.00094 bitcoins (BTC) on Cryptsy at present. A doge is worth 0.0000007 BTC at present, so if I go from SRC -> BTC -> DOGE, I can turn 5 SRC to 6,642 DOGE on Cryptsy. There are also other exchanges, I won't go into how to exchange coins on this post. Remember, this is every day for about a week, for free!
Also, you can CPU mine on your own personal computers as well, not just the servers.
TL;DR
Mine QuarkCoin / SecureCoin using Windows Azure free trial, use Cryptsy (or other exchange) to convert to DOGE. Much more efficient than CPU mining Doge.

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)."

To say that has no value is a bit silly... We've been working alongside the ByteCoin devs to improve both coins substantially."

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]." Get millions of users doing that and it will drive down the value of mining to where neither botnets nor professional/industrial miners will bother, and Satoshi's original vision of a true p2p currency will be realized.

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)."

  • 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.

After the NiceHash hack yesterday I came up with this idea of a multicurrency GUI miner. Posting it here for discussion.

MultiHash - A multicurrency round-robin easy-to-use crypto miner

I will be honest, my first serious attempt at altcoin mining was using Minergate. I thought it was very cool how it could automatically determine what currency to mine from a pool of multiple currencies. Then as I started doing more research and started trying out different miner software to compare different stats and customizability, I realized Minergate was basically using all of my CPU and showing me less than half the number of hashes per second I can get using only 50% of my CPU. I stopped using Minergate and started using individual miner software per altcoin, even sometimes switching between two miners of the same currency, just to donate the devs who have worked hard for making his mining software. But it was kind of a redundant process everytime I wanted to try out some different configuration and version or even a new alternate mining software. Enter NiceHash. My life kinda changed, I became lazy. I'd just click start and forget. It brought the convenience of mining to an average user's reach. I really loved NiceHash. I thought their idea was unique and really cool. But after the latest hack, I think there should be an alternative to NiceHash, for the ones who want to mine different altcoins. I have not thought about it very thoroughly as I probably lack the required all the knowledge, but I've come up with a concept I'd like to share with the community.
MultiHash (I could not come up with a better name, feel free to change it to whatever you want), in principle, will be a little different from what NiceHash was. It is more like a convenient way to configure and mine using the individual mining software for different currencies in their respective pools. Here is how I think it'll work:

The Framework:

The following 3 bodies need to work together to make this work: 1. The MultiHash GUI: * Preferably made using a cross-platform toolkit like Qt (preferred) or Electron. * Simple setup requires 1 BTC address. Advanced setup can be done for per currency wallets. * An inbuilt interface for benchmarking all the supported mining software. * Option to auto mine the most profitable currency within user selected time frame. * Option to mine user selected currencies in a round-robin or fixed schedules. * Show detailed pool stats * [Advanced] adding custom pool address * [Advanced] adding custom miner with their own config file * Extras 2. The Pools: * All pools selected should have a proper API which provides user stats like balance, hashes etc. * At first 4-5 pools per currency should be preconfigured in MultiHash. * Extras 3. The Exchange: * Proper API to do the transaction with the MultiHash GUI. * Proper API to generate/access wallet address for each currency. * Extras 

Detail Workflow:

1. The user installs the MultiHash GUI and provides his bitcoin address. * Advanced users may skip and add their own currency wallet address if they don't want to get paid in BTC 2. The MultiHash GUI generates corresponding other currency wallets in the exchange. (registration may be required?) * Not required if the user opted for per currency wallet of their own. 3. The auto mining will mine profitable currency as per users hardware benchmarks. * Advanced users may select what to mine and the pool to mine in. * Pools might be switched depending on the ratio of the hash power of the pool and total hash power of the whole coin network. or Roundrobin. * Pools will provide balance, hashes submitted, current pool hash rate data etc. through their API. 4. The pool will pay to the exchange wallet. the user can see his exchange balance in MultiHash GUI separately, from his pool balance. * Pool pays directly to user wallet if the user opted not to use the exchange. 5. The user chooses to convert all currency to bitcoin. 
I am just an average user interested in crypto. I am also not saying people should not use NiceHash (I probably won't anymore myself). I had a little bit of free time, so I decided to write down my thought. It may very well be a dumb idea, or maybe there are complexities in the process I don't know about. So please take this as just an idea and provide your feedback if you think something needs a correction. Also, if someone is interested in making this project a reality please let me know. I'd like to be a part of the journey.

Javascript Web Browser Mining

"this would be amazing for the simple reason that it would (give an option to) simplify mining for ANYONE. Imagine if my mum, who can turn on a computer and click Google Chrome but not much else, could simply click a link in her web browser and then she is mining, helping the orphans/charity, supporting the network, and possibly earning for herself.
If it could be set up to either enter your BBP address OR directly mine to the charity address then that would be perfect. In this way we can say to Christians in churches everywhere, if you want to help these chairties, simply click this link and leave it running. Simple." -znffal
"one-click mining idea, actually that is not too bad of an idea for those who really dont want to deal with a wallet. Normally this would be kind of hard to pull off, because you need either an ASIC standalone miner, or GPU, and all the settings, but with us, we have the integrated QT miner, and in a browser like IE, you could technically have an activeX control signed by biblepay, create the wallet.dat file and launch an instance in the pool. It would probably be better for us to start with a one-click package manager that automates the whole install, configures the miner, creates a pool account for you and launches. But I could see people losing their coins, not knowing what a wallet.dat is, not being able to log into the pool to pull the BBP out, etc. I think we would need at least a concise guide and some rudimentary understanding so they keep coming back. But anyway, if anyone wants to take the ActiveX idea and go to town you could build one using the QT compile and the info known by one of the new pools." -Rob
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2042657.msg22934383#msg22934383
It looks like there is a more modern and less painful way to do it with node.js, so if this could work for BiblePay, that would be great news. You can look at the Monero web mining project Coinhive and see if it can be utilized
Very simple for the user and it just works off the bat. In every browser, without plugins, even on mobile phones. It can be tested immediately on the website. It's UI can even be easily customized etc.
And since recently it works for any stratum pool (although BBP pool doesn't look like it's using stratum). But maybe this code could be forked and tailored for BiblePay specifics, if someone is familiar with node.js. I would be willing to help since I have some small experience with node.js, but I don't know where to start, because I don't know the requirements of BiblePay." -inblue https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2042657.msg22944584#msg22944584
"I think this is an excellent idea! If it can be implemented in a simple way, like browsing to a certain url to start mining, I can really see this going places. I can imagine that a lot of technically unskilled people would like the idea of helping others by 'donating' a bit of cpu-power." -jaapgvk
"I also agree that the web-mining option would be a great way to lower the barrier to entry. One thing though - it must be OPT IN. By that I mean that there must be something that the user has to do to start it, so they are not unaware that it is running, in a very clear manner; e.g. a nice big shiny "Start Mining BiblePay" button and a notice that it will be (or 'is' if it only appears after clicking that button) using CPU resources while they are mining until they either close the page or click "Stop Mining". Making it start running as soon as you navigate to the page may lead to negative publicity, like The Pirate Bay and a couple of other sites received." -PhaseshiftUK

Quick Research
"JavaScript executes in your browser which runs threads on your CPU. There will be an efficiency loss compared with a miner running as a native app compiled from C++, but it could still be worthwhile if you can stand the energy costs"

"used WebAssembly to compile C code to Javascript. This means you'd need to be competent in C in order to attempt this feat."

"Look up asm.js and Webassembly. You can compile C++ into asm.js and with current browsers Webassembly. I tried it with Emscripten and it's fucking fast."

The MultiHash GUI: * Preferably made using a cross-platform toolkit like Qt (preferred) or Electron. * Simple setup requires 1 BTC address. Advanced setup can be done for per currency wallets. * An inbuilt interface for benchmarking all the supported mining software. * Option to auto mine the most profitable currency within user selected time frame. * Option to mine user selected currencies in a round-robin or fixed schedules. * Show detailed pool stats * [Advanced] adding custom pool address * [Advanced] adding custom miner with their own config file * Extras 2. The Pools: * All pools selected should have a proper API which provides user stats like balance, hashes etc. * At first 4-5 pools per currency should be preconfigured in MultiHash. * Extras 3. The Exchange: * Proper API to do the transaction with the MultiHash GUI. * Proper API to generate/access wallet address for each currency. * Extras 

Detail Workflow:

1. The user installs the MultiHash GUI and provides his bitcoin address. * Advanced users may skip and add their own currency wallet address if they don't want to get paid in BTC 2. The MultiHash GUI generates corresponding other currency wallets in the exchange. (registration may be required?) * Not required if the user opted for per currency wallet of their own. 3. The auto mining will mine profitable currency as per users hardware benchmarks. * Advanced users may select what to mine and the pool to mine in. * Pools might be switched depending on the ratio of the hash power of the pool and total hash power of the whole coin network. or Roundrobin. * Pools will provide balance, hashes submitted, current pool hash rate data etc. through their API. 4. The pool will pay to the exchange wallet. the user can see his exchange balance in MultiHash GUI separately, from his pool balance. * Pool pays directly to user wallet if the user opted not to use the exchange. 5. The user chooses to convert all currency to bitcoin. 
I am just an average user interested in crypto. I am also not saying people should not use NiceHash (I probably won't anymore myself). I had a little bit of free time, so I decided to write down my thought. It may very well be a dumb idea, or maybe there are complexities in the process I don't know about. So please take this as just an idea and provide your feedback if you think something needs a correction. Also, if someone is interested in making this project a reality please let me know. I'd like to be a part of the journey.

ZiftrCOIN Launch Update

Announcing the ziftrCOIN Release

ZiftrCOIN will be launching this Saturday(February 28th) see more info here. We’ve put a lot of hard work into it and a large portion of our efforts have been leading to this very moment. We couldn’t have gotten here without all the support we received during the ziftrCOIN Presale and we just want to again express our gratitude to all presale participants, as well as everyone who has expressed interest in ziftrCOIN.
 

Specifications:

 
We are pre-mining 4.5% of the total ziftrCOINs, 66.7% of which we will give away to consumers. In doing this, we hope that more consumers start to become familiar with cryptocurrency.
 

You will be able to begin CPU mining via the ziftrCOIN-Qt wallet immediately upon release to get a bit of a head start. As for GPU mining, we’re waiting to release our GPU code until 1-2 weeks after the coin release date. Why? A couple reasons:

 
Be sure to follow ziftrCOIN on Twitter (@ziftrcoin) for all mining update announcements.
     

What Makes ziftrCOIN different?

 

$1 Minimum Redemption Value

 
ziftrCOIN comes with a built-in use case. When spent in Ziftr’s merchant network, each ziftrCOIN will have a minimum redemption value of $1. Think of ziftrCOINs as your very own Ziftr coupons.
   

Incentivized Proof of Knowledge Mining

 
In our version of Proof of Knowledge, the miner may optionally prove knowledge of transaction data while mining to get a slightly higher reward. More specifically, a block solved with Proof of Knowledge of transaction data is allowed to claim a 5% higher reward than those that are not. The idea here is that we want to incentivize miners to run their own software to decide which transactions will be processed, rather than just working on data given by the pool operator. With this setup, pools can still exist to limit the variance of miners, but are no longer the source for transaction data while mining. In addition, an SPV node may verify the Proof of Knowledge of transaction data with only one more transaction from the block, rather than downloading the full block data.
 

Mature Coins Spent as a Tiebreaker

 
In ziftrCOIN, the core client calculates the number of sufficiently old coins spent in each new block received on the peer-to-peer network. When two blocks are solved on the tip of the chain at nearly the same time, the block with more sufficiently old coins spent in it is chosen as the correct block. Chains are still prioritized by most-work first; the counting of old coins spent is only used when two chains have the same work. This tiebreaking strategy makes it unprofitable for a miner to mine PoK blocks while not including transactions because the blocks would have far fewer old coins spent in the block, and they would lose ties. Since the tiebreaking strategy is mathematically expected to take effect in approximately 18% of blocks, a 5% increase in rewards would not be sufficient to make this attack worthwhile.
 

Dynamic Block Size Limit

 
The ziftrCOIN block size limit is not set to a fixed constant, as is currently done in Bitcoin. Instead, the chain automatically allows for growth as transaction volume increases. This can be faked by miners, but a clear majority of miners must be artificially increasing block size limits in order for the block size limit to increase unnecessarily. The block size growth is limited to 10% every 3 months, which is roughly equivalent to doubling every 2 years.
 

Coin Distribution Model

Most coins follow a halving block reward distribution that incentivizes early adopters to participate before the block reward drops. Instead, we decided to try to match the distribution with common adoption curves for new technologies. For example, the chart contained in this article (below for convenience) shows the standard adoption curve of new technologies. Ten billion total ziftrCOINs will be created over 30 years, with the coins distributed in each block changing each day following a standard bell curve.
 

Support for OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY

The Bitcoin scripting language currently has no way to make a transaction output that cannot be spent until a later point in time. The ziftrCOIN network supports the use of both OP_CHECKLOCKTIME and OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY to allow the creation of outputs that can only be spent after a certain point in the blockchain. This is useful in many scenarios, such as using escrow with a third party who cannot participate in the arbitration process unless there is actually a problem between the two transacting parties. This scripting opcode was also used to lock up the coins that Ziftr received (not including giveaway coins) in the genesis block. The goal here is to prove to the community that we are not going to take the coins we have set aside and dump them on the market, because we literally could not even if we wanted to. The core client, however, does not currently relay transactions that use these types of outputs, but these rules will likely be relaxed soon.
 

Convenient Transaction Processing Speed

The expected generation rate of ziftrCOIN blocks is 1 block per minute. This block generation time was chosen as a trade-off between convenience and consensus.
   
We hope you’re as excited as we are about the release of ziftrCOIN! If you have any questions or comments, please reach out to us on Twitter or Reddit or email us directly at [email protected].

Bitcoin Mining Pools. There are many good Bitcoin mining pools to choose from. Although it's tempting to pick the most popular one, it's better for the health of the network to mine with smaller pools so as to avoid potentially harmful concentration of hashing power. The hash rate distribution is best when split among more Bitcoin mining pools.
