Turn off Pow Mining?

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?

Here is what I came up with. Should be an easy drop in with current 1.5 versions.

Proof of Work Limits


From Block 5.6m PoW will only be accepted after a Stake block, or 10
minutes with no block
From Block 6.0m PoW will only be accepted after 10 mins with no block
Bump to version 1.5.3.0 and update Proto Version, will send alerts
Bump back down the DB version , as LevelDB1.9 "should" work fine as a
drop in with LevelDB 1.7

 

I will be doing more testing, so might be some tweaks but this should  be pretty solid. 

 

Feeback if you have it.

 

Thanks!

Seems like a reasonable approach.  I honestly thought HBN was dead until I randomly looked at its activity today on coinmarketcap.  Glad to see activity is coming back!

Good to see you Jay!  HBN is alive and doing well. Stay tuned for lots of changes leading to Version 1.6..

Sounds fair. 

 

I'd really like to at least test out mining for a short while before it gets difficult.  Maybe start up an old gridseed!  I cannot find any working pools, though.  Anyone know of one?  Is it possible (& not difficult for a technically-challenged noob) to mine directly to the wallet? 

Sorry for slightly diverting from the thread subject.

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

rpcallowip=myIp (That your miner is on)


Cgminer config.
