Turn off Pow Mining?

Recommended Posts

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.

 

You can get the latest version here: https://github.com/Tranz5/HoboNickels/releases/latest

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!

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

server=1
listen=1

rpcpassword=mypss
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcallowip=myIp (That your miner is on)


Cgminer config.

Hi Nicola Alivad.

 

This is my first time compiling a Mac Wallet, so I am still getting the bugs worked out. Can you tell me more about why it doesn't open?  Do you get an error. If so can you copy and paste the error. You can put it here or PM it to me. I would need the full "report" error to help fix the compilation process.

 

Thanks!

Hello Tranz, 

I think this is a common issue in OS X Sierra, there is no "error report", I mean the OS do not issue any report or warning regarding the issue, 
simply when clicking on the app to run it, the app behave like it is starting, appears in the dock for few seconds, and then crash and close without any report, warning or message from the OS, I have google and in some cases it is solved changing permissions (CHMOD) of the executable inside the .app container.  This issue has to do with some change in OS Sierra.

 

Regards 

 

Nicolas

I have a question, I finally got my wallet synced up. Right now I am mining about 10 HBN per day... I have it set to AP every 10 I mine on H2C.  Namely what I am trying to figure out is will the POS function in wallet reset due to immature coins? I set my AP to 50 instead of 10. I wanna bankroll this stuff!
