BLAKECOIN BLC
 
Blakecoin is an experimental new digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world. Blakecoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network.
 
Forked from Bitcoin reference wallet 0.8.6  Blake-256(optimized) faster than Scrypt and faster than SHA-256 in Sphlib C code.  The algorithm was written as a candidate for SHA-3, Based on round one candidate code

i was using bf miner for my asics ? i have to only use the cpuminer?

 

Yea, the asics weren't made to be used on a Blake-256 algo coin.  You have to use the CPUminer... link in the post above.

oh alright just on the main site it states the use of gpu and fpga so i assumed you could also use asics 

 

thanks 

 

That means that if someone wants to write the code for a miner, GPUs can be used.  The GPU miner for this coin is "In the Works" according to the developer.

 

Developers are notorious for release coins without 'stuff'.  Everyone is in a rush to release their coin.

Someone has to be hitting this coin hard and by that I doubt it is with a cpu , I am not just saying that since I have failed to hit a block since that can be bad luck but watching how the difficulty has ramped up even considering the difference in the algorithm it looks fishy.


Mine 6 coins at once including my coin Photon NOW !! 6X your hash power http://ny2.blakecoin.com/

I'm mining it with a Carinsmore1 FPGA and getting about 1.4GH/s

there is a GPU miner I was getting .225GH/s on a 7770.

still no pool but work is being do one making one work.

Just as a note ASICs are non changeable made to one thing but do it quickly and at a low power.

FPGA the P is for programable they can do one thing at a time but you can change what one thing is. But they are slower and need more power.

Often some will work on FPGA refining things debugging squeezing last bits of speed etc, then use that info to make an ASIC Master.

I doubt blake will ever take off enough for someone to spend the money for an ASIC.

I will try to add some more threads and information about Blakecoin and its related projects

 

The Blake-256 algorithm brings good efficiency and hashing speed compared to Scrypt or SHA-256  

 

Blakecoin also has the possibility of being merged mined with other future Blake-256 based coins thus eliminating the the pick and choose we see with scrypt based coins, it is designed to be inclusive of any platform rather than to exclude 

 

with kramble's FPGA miner for Blakecoin I think the idea was not that people run out and buy new FPGA's but to rather re-use ex Bitcoin/SHA-256 devices like the Lancelot, Carinsmore1, ztex 1.15y, some really good work by kramble not just with the hardware but also the mining software  

 

this should help bring some new life to these devices as they are quite capable and efficient  B)

 

Asic development is expensive and on a small scale would give very little benefit in comparisons to some of the newer(expensive) 20nm FPGA's, only if you are making thousands of units does the case for development of Asic make any sense

 

saying that if the Blake-256 algo became popular, due to its inclusive nature it would most certainly use less silicon space thus the chips would be cheaper each and use less power while giving more hashes per watt than SHA-256D 

 

fast hashing is not the same thing as more coins or faster rounds, with Blakecoin the wallet will always want to retarget the difficulty to get a result on average of 3 minutes per block
 
the higher hash rate should make for better averages for block finds (larger set) e.g more guesses of block hash at a given difficulty should give more chances of a random block find
