    BITCOIN SCRYPT - BTCS
     
    Bitcoin sCrypt is the decentralized alternative to Bitcoin-core and is the first cryptographic currency to utilize CryptoVoter's decentralized blockchain voting to decide development issues and shift power away from developers and mining pools to coinholders themselves.

    It is a typical attempt at an attack on the coin but it will be all for nothing, as once two blocks are found, the difficulty will retarget again and bring it back down.

     

    It seems that there are a few people out there that either don't like this coin or love it so much they instamine it for a while with their massive rigs.

    I would suggest changing name to

    BitSCoin

    from Bitcoin Scrypt (B2). 

     

    Currently I can not run Bitcoin and Bitcoin scrypt at the same time.

    Plus, BitSCoin will be more visually distinguishable.

    Also BSC is available using BTC in Scrypt and SHA256 will cause major problems.

    Why when Network Hashrate more than 100 Mkh, blocks cease to be in general? such as now...Or it is a pool hung?

    I am sure that if I have this right, that the network hash rate is an average rating over a period of time and not an exact measurement of the actual hash's at any given time. Its also depends on what the difficulty is.

    Man there must be some people throwing HR at BTC2 because it always seems to be at a high difficulty.  The blocks are being found longer and longer.  According to my client the last block was found a couple hours ago.

    Yeah it is really strange, the pool cannot keep up with the amount of solo hashing going on, then stopping, then starting again. It looks like people are trying to get as many of these coins as they can.

    Either that or someone is trying to manipulate the difficulty of the coin.  I'm thinking maybe Omega6 should make the average over more blocks vs. the last 4.  Though, I'm not an expert in the whole coin creation process.

    I opened the client last night and the difficulty was .09 I posted in the shoutbox that it was a great time to mine it.  I guess the person or people with the huge amount of hashrate came back to mining the coin.

    I don't believe there is an installer file.  You just create a folder somewhere and put the files in it.  Then you launch the qt exe file.  It should open right up.

    Network hashrate is in full wild mood swings just about consistently. By order of 100s MH/s. Are there any different sources of the network hashrate?

    I know there is a pool, but I'm not sure it displays the network hashrate.  Getting it from the client is the best way IMO.
