    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.

    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.

     

    Yup. Unreasonable swings. Like someone is plugging in 300Mh/s then unplugging it  repeatedly

    I guess it's the nature of the miners - they can mine when and what they want.  They might be trying to get the difficulty so high that it's impossible to mine.  Though, with the way the difficulty is setup it will be hard to get it stuck on a high difficulty for too much time unless the hashrate is constant, which cost a lot in energy.

    Yeah there is no way they could sustain it too high for low, unless they were doing it because they really wanted loads of this coin and none of the others.

    Seems to be stuck synchronizing with network, even with 2 addnodes & a fresh wallet

    What happens is sometimes when the difficulty is very high and it takes awhile to find a block the wallet won't show as being synced even though it's synced.  This happens on many coins.  I just opened up my wallet and it synced fine.  A new block was just found a couple of minutes ago.

    ah that is why. cool.

     

    Great time to solo BTC2.  When I opened up the wallet it was .60.  Whomever was throwing all the hashrate at the coin isn't doing it currently.

    Been mining the past few days, seems to be fine with auto payout for the BTC2.CRYPTOMINER.NET pool...

     

    The network hash rate jumps variously from 10Mhs > 20MHs > 40Mhs > 100Mhs > 200 Mhs > and finally 450 MHs

    The diff rises but always comes down quick, this should give it an additional boost for this coin, i debated turning off my machines, but i just sold off alot of coin as they seem to be trailing lately.... Investment period again, seems to be normal every 3 months as new coins come out.

     

    Ive been steadily giving the pool multiple Mhs and am acumulating BTC2 with no issues, I installed a second wallet to my laptop and had trouble with syncing unti i just copied the database, blkindex and blk0001 file to the new wallet.

     

    Proceeded to then send 25 BTC2 to the new wallet and succesfully sent the amount. (hash rate jumped from 20Mhs>70Mhs>145Mhs during those 15 min)

     

    :Of course using wallet version 1.1:

    All i can do is show it you :-)

     

     

    Anyway it took about 30 min to get all 6 confirms.... 15 min for the first 2 due to the jump in hash rate then the last 4 came in the next 10-15 min...

     

    Pool seems to wait for a few blocks to be solved before showing whats happening, may be due to 3 blocks being found within a minute at times... but payouts are still running good.

     

    (Crazy seeing the high numbers 118,000 BTC/Day when its at Diff =.02 but i have yet to see it go lower than that. What was the launching Difficulty?)

    That is cool. May I ask, those stubs on the video out ports, are those off the shelf or custom? I suppose you need them with multiple cards? I don't see any video out connections at all. Nice racking setup.

     

    The big hashing flux has been going on for a long time. Very strange as it seems seriously unrealistic to go so high and stop. I've seen it hit 450 Mh/s at times then drop to 20. ??

    They came with the video cards, i placed three resistors in each on to activate the video or else you get only 1/10th the hash rate when they arent detected as plugged in.

    (Can't remember the resistance in them, but they range from 75 ohm to 125 ohm)

     

    Also yes, no video outs... they are hard wired to my router while i monitor everything from my phone and tablet.

     

     

    Also seriously, I understand there are farms but wow it seems like there's 3 different big hashers out there (i dont think multipools have hit this yet)... I can imagine the load on power they are putting whenever they switch over. I mean damn that's alot of power for such a.... um.... a nonsense coin right?

    You would need like 60 of your rigs to achieve the top hash r sometimes. But I guess the way it's setup for nobody can mine all the coins out of existence in 6 months. At least there is a chance for BTC2.

    Right, that's what interests me at the moment.... and those shoulda coulda woulda moments will get you.

     

    (i.e. i debated building this rig and didnt when LTC was giving me 300 coins for 500Khs, to think i could of made multiples that if i went with gut instinct.)

     

    So now my gut tells me that ASICS would have helped BTC SHA-256 if the roll out wasnt so late, that did heaps of damage that people don't even realize because they are waiting still. Even block erupters are cheap compared to before.

     

    I don't think I've ever seen anything trash an electronic component as fast as BTC SHA-256 has with the ASIC, but it was the seller's who did that. That's what happens when you start a business the first time, it gets exploited or something drastic happens and it's done. Most don't succeed the first time around, I even worked for a mobile phone repair business that started tanking because of how fast the phones we devaluing.

     

    BTC2 may be the successor, but of course what will matter is when the hash power hits... Remember the i.e. above, well i can see my numbers dropping to about 50-100 coin a day and even down to LTC rates at 10 coin or less per day for multiple Mhs, but the difficulty adjust may be the hidden key to this one.

     

    (Also me talking about it helps, but no too early eh... I'm still mining!)
