  1. Not hard, just need to start you Wallet in Server mode and point the miner to it. I did i with a Fury no problem HoboNickels.conf Cgminer config.
  2. Good to see you Jay! HBN is alive and doing well. Stay tuned for lots of changes leading to Version 1.6..
  3. Mac Compilers? Hello! Does anyone have experience and a few minutes to help to compile a Mac version of HBN? I have a new version ready to go 1.5.3.1 that contains a fork at block 5.6 million and some new features. I have an old mac I can try to learn on but I don't want to waste a ton of time.
  4. I updated hobonickels.info to make links correct. Not to much change to front page content. Does anyone want to give it some time to check it over make sure I didn't miss anything? Also does anyone want to work on the wiki or news section? I will add a few news posts here soon, and maybe to the wiki, but it is very low priority. If others want to contribute just let me know. It is a private wiki page due to bots! But I can add others. Thanks!
  5. Here is what I came up with. Should be an easy drop in with current 1.5 versions. https://github.com/Tranz5/HoboNickels/commit/e14a28cce0967110327f758066c11922af94aa5e I will be doing more testing, so might be some tweaks but this should be pretty solid. Feeback if you have it. Thanks!
  6. Turn off Pow Mining? Hey Everyone. Would like a quick feedback/vote. Right now the difficulty for HBN is very low. Not many miners these days. And those who are mining are taking advantage via flash mining. They wait until no blocks have been mined for hours and the diff drifts lower and lower, then they turn on 100+ mh/s and crush though block after block after block. This either causes large Regorgs or wallet delays. So I would like to do something for this. Here are a few options. 1) Turn off PoW of completely. 2) Set minimum PoW Difficulty to say 2 or 3 or higher. 3) Only allow 1 PoW block for every 5 PoS blocks. I am leaning towards 1 or 3. Likely 1. Would like to implement something before July is over. So going to move quickly.. What say ye?
  7. You are welcome. Thanks for the support!
  8. Try this one.. ftp://ftp.hobonickels.info user: hbn@hobonickels.info pass: H0b0Nickels
  9. No problem glad it worked out. We also have bootstraps available to help speed up syncing if you are very far behind.
  10. Peers can be found in a few places. https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/CoinInfo/?coin=HBN Then click on Connections for HBN on the right. Or you can go to the block explorer https://chainz.cryptoid.info/hbn/#!network and get nodes from there by clicking on node list next to the versions. Either way after you have some IPs you can click on Debug Window and then Console and type addnode IP add .After just a a few you should get full connections. I am working on a fully 100% up DNS server that will be part of version 1.6 once it is officially released in late 2017, early 2018. Probably some beta with it before then as well.
  11. Yes they can be traded for BTC at Crypopia. https://www.cryptopia.co.nz/Exchange/?market=HBN_BTC They can be mined and staked to create blocks.
  12. Memory is the biggest hog no doubt. I run a system with 16 gig of memory. I can run about 4 or 5 wallets plus firebox with still 25% to spare. I stay connected all the time, so I never have issue with getting peers or generating stake. But your point is valid. I think things will be good for future.
  13. Auto Sell I have been teaching my son some things about BitCoins, HBN, Markets and Coding. He was looking around Cryptopia and wanted to know what the "API" section meant. The best way to explain is to show. So we worked on it a bit yesterday and I finished it off last night. It is a simple script(s) that will watch your balance and then sell based on your wishes. It can be used with a headless coin that you might mine to and then send as you get coins, or it can be used with S4C on HBN/CAP/HYP whomever is now using it. It uses ruby and shell. So it should work on just about any system. You only need to install MSYS and Ruby on Windows and you are good to go. Linux and Mac should work with little issue. I have attached the code. To invoke you simply need to have all of the scripts in the same dir and enter auto_sell.sh COIN TRADE_TYPE The COIN is just the coin you want to autosell eg HBN. and the TRADE_TYPE is ASK, BID or DUMP. ASK will put the trade on the top ask price. BID will sell on the bid without looking at how many coins. and DUMP (for now) will just subtract a few sats and try to sell the entire balance right away. auto_sell.sh HBN ASK There is only a piece that you might need to fill your self in the ruby code in getbalance.rb . You have to put into an array the COIN to COINID COINHASH = { "HBN" => 84, "CAP" => 213 } And you have to enter your API information into getbalance.rb and placetrade.rb _API_KEY = "YOUR_API_KEY" _API_SECRET = "YOUR_API_SECRET" I have worked with ruby only this once, so it can be created a lot better with time. I also wanted to show him the difference in languages so I used shell with awk for parsing. This is simplistic and not fully vetted code, so use at your own risk. But it works pretty well. auto_sell.sh coin_info.rb getbalance.rb placetrade.rb
  14. Depending on how far I can get the CPU usage down to, I am leaning towards starting stake at 24hrs. But I'll know more once I get up to the point of testnet.
  15. HBN Money Supply So I was looking at the money supply for HBN over the past few years, and I made a little chart. The purpose of this was to figure out if here in the next 6 to 12 months a hard fork would be necessary. I am still mostly under the guise of no, but I want to keep an open mind for the good of all. As you can see the annualized money supply rate should be heading closer towards zero, but is sticking in the 70% range. Also, the time between blocks is averaging 20-22 seconds. This is hard to see from the chart, but the time between each bar(100,000 blocks) should be about 35 days, but speeds up as we begin more aggressive staking. You can click on the chart to download the spreadsheet. So we can slow down the money creation but allow blocks to stake earlier. This should cause the PoS weight to increase which would lower the annualized staking percentage. We can also, or only, change the time between blocks to increase a bit to say 45, which would again slow down the annualized money supply by increasing the difficulty of staking. Anyway this is just thoughts for now. What say ye?
