  1. [ANN] BitCoinFast BCF - revival

    Sounds good. Awesome Job. I am looking forward to resume mining.
  2. [ANN] BitCoinFast BCF - revival

    Thank you for your quick responses. Please forgive my ignorance but I still don't understand why the block rate is nowhere near the target rate of 60 seconds there has only been about 200 blocks mined in 2 days. I would expect the difficulty to go way down based on the averages I am seeing. I was typing this when you posted your last response. I think the difficulty is messed up or set to some other target like maybe 10 minutes. I am still curious if the difficulty can be adjusted in between blocks being found so that if a block is not found in 60 seconds the difficulty could be lowered every n number of seconds until a block is found. This would address the pool switching. I also think the difficulty should never increase if it takes longer than 60 seconds to find a block

    Thanks for the response. Is there any way to fix this. Bitcoinfast is supposed to be fast. I just sent some to cryptopia. It is going to take 200 confirmations. Because of this problem it might take months to move the coins. Who knows what the price will be then. I am suprised anyone is trading this coin at all. If it could be fixed it would be a huge advantage. Can the difficulty be lowered based on timer until block is found. In other words after one minute lower the difficulty every 15 seconds until block is found. I admit I have no clue how it works now. Just noticed something really strange I just mined a block and based on block explorer the previous block was about 3 hours earlier the difficulty went up. That doesn't make any sense. This would be a great coin if there was a way to find a block every minute. Network shows 11 confirmations broadcast through 4 nodes. Cryptopia shows 0/200 confirmations. Based on my observations of difficulty using getmininginfo it seems to me difficulty is raised based on network hash. In my opinion the difficulty should only go up based on the average amount of time to find a block without regard to the network hash rate. Below is a copy and paste from my wallet. 11:59:18  { "blocks" : 524672, "currentblocksize" : 1196, "currentblocktx" : 1, "difficulty" : 89.06528214, "errors" : "", "generate" : false, "genproclimit" : -1, "hashespersec" : 0, "networkhashps" : 147806267, "pooledtx" : 1, "testnet" : false } 13:45:16  getmininginfo 13:45:16  { "blocks" : 524672, "currentblocksize" : 2195, "currentblocktx" : 2, "difficulty" : 89.06528214, "errors" : "", "generate" : false, "genproclimit" : -1, "hashespersec" : 0, "networkhashps" : 147806267, "pooledtx" : 2, "testnet" : false } 14:06:06  getmininginfo 14:06:06  { "blocks" : 524673, "currentblocksize" : 1000, "currentblocktx" : 0, "difficulty" : 250.49959686, "errors" : "", "generate" : false, "genproclimit" : -1, "hashespersec" : 0, "networkhashps" : 404758126, "pooledtx" : 0, "testnet" : false } More Info: The difficulty seems to be in direct proportion to hash rate. 06:48:54  { "blocks" : 524725, "currentblocksize" : 1162, "currentblocktx" : 1, "difficulty" : 134.83484159, "errors" : "", "generate" : false, "genproclimit" : -1, "hashespersec" : 0, "networkhashps" : 392753142, "pooledtx" : 1, "testnet" : false } 07:07:16  getmininginfo 07:07:16  { "blocks" : 524726, "currentblocksize" : 1000, "currentblocktx" : 0, "difficulty" : 379.22603978, "errors" : "", "generate" : false, "genproclimit" : -1, "hashespersec" : 0, "networkhashps" : 1094237525, "pooledtx" : 0, "testnet" : false } 1094237525/392753142 = 2.786069436460422 X 134.83484159 = 375.659... This doesn't make sense to me as it took almost an hour to find this block!

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to do this but here goes. I like the idea of this coin and would like to mine it. I am noticing a problem that a lot of coins might also have. I made the mistake of solo mining with 2.5 Gh/s. I believe this caused a large jump in difficulty. After I stopped mining No blocks were found for at least 8 hours until I started mining again. I wanted to stake some coins and noticed that the transaction never moved from unconfirmed to available. Also blocks I have mined are not reaching maturity. The specs say one block per 60 seconds therefore should be 60 per hour therefore 50 confirmations should take about an hour. I have blocks mined that are immature for more than 12 hours. I think the switching of a large amount of hashing power from one coin to another by multipools is really screwing up the difficulty of a lot of coins. Any thoughts?
