Groestlcoin 6th Anniversary Release

Introduction

Dear Groestlers, it goes without saying that 2020 has been a difficult time for millions of people worldwide. The groestlcoin team would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone our best to everyone coping with the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19. Let it bring out the best in us all and show that collectively, we can conquer anything.
The centralised banks and our national governments are facing unprecedented times with interest rates worldwide dropping to record lows in places. Rest assured that this can only strengthen the fundamentals of all decentralised cryptocurrencies and the vision that was seeded with Satoshi's Bitcoin whitepaper over 10 years ago. Despite everything that has been thrown at us this year, the show must go on and the team will still progress and advance to continue the momentum that we have developed over the past 6 years.
In addition to this, we'd like to remind you all that this is Groestlcoin's 6th Birthday release! In terms of price there have been some crazy highs and lows over the years (with highs of around $2.60 and lows of $0.000077!), but in terms of value– Groestlcoin just keeps getting more valuable! In these uncertain times, one thing remains clear – Groestlcoin will keep going and keep innovating regardless. On with what has been worked on and completed over the past few months.

UPDATED - Groestlcoin Core 2.18.2

This is a major release of Groestlcoin Core with many protocol level improvements and code optimizations, featuring the technical equivalent of Bitcoin v0.18.2 but with Groestlcoin-specific patches. On a general level, most of what is new is a new 'Groestlcoin-wallet' tool which is now distributed alongside Groestlcoin Core's other executables.
NOTE: The 'Account' API has been removed from this version which was typically used in some tip bots. Please ensure you check the release notes from 2.17.2 for details on replacing this functionality.

ALL NEW - Groestlcoin Moonshine iOS/Android Wallet

Built with React Native, Moonshine utilizes Electrum-GRS's JSON-RPC methods to interact with the Groestlcoin network.
GRS Moonshine's intended use is as a hot wallet. Meaning, your keys are only as safe as the device you install this wallet on. As with any hot wallet, please ensure that you keep only a small, responsible amount of Groestlcoin on it at any given time.

ALL NEW! – HODL GRS Android Wallet

HODL GRS connects directly to the Groestlcoin network using SPV mode and doesn't rely on servers that can be hacked or disabled.
HODL GRS utilizes AES hardware encryption, app sandboxing, and the latest security features to protect users from malware, browser security holes, and even physical theft. Private keys are stored only in the secure enclave of the user's phone, inaccessible to anyone other than the user.
Simplicity and ease-of-use is the core design principle of HODL GRS. A simple recovery phrase (which we call a Backup Recovery Key) is all that is needed to restore the user's wallet if they ever lose or replace their device. HODL GRS is deterministic, which means the user's balance and transaction history can be recovered just from the backup recovery key.

ALL NEW! – GroestlcoinSeed Savior

Groestlcoin Seed Savior is a tool for recovering BIP39 seed phrases.
This tool is meant to help users with recovering a slightly incorrect Groestlcoin mnemonic phrase (AKA backup or seed). You can enter an existing BIP39 mnemonic and get derived addresses in various formats.
To find out if one of the suggested addresses is the right one, you can click on the suggested address to check the address' transaction history on a block explorer.

ALL NEW! – Vanity Search Vanity Address Generator

NOTE: NVidia GPU or any CPU only. AMD graphics cards will not work with this address generator.
VanitySearch is a command-line Segwit-capable vanity Groestlcoin address generator. Add unique flair when you tell people to send Groestlcoin. Alternatively, VanitySearch can be used to generate random addresses offline.
If you're tired of the random, cryptic addresses generated by regular groestlcoin clients, then VanitySearch is the right choice for you to create a more personalized address.
VanitySearch is a groestlcoin address prefix finder. If you want to generate safe private keys, use the -s option to enter your passphrase which will be used for generating a base key as for BIP38 standard (VanitySearch.exe -s "My PassPhrase" FXPref). You can also use VanitySearch.exe -ps "My PassPhrase" which will add a crypto secure seed to your passphrase.
VanitySearch may not compute a good grid size for your GPU, so try different values using -g option in order to get the best performances. If you want to use GPUs and CPUs together, you may have best performances by keeping one CPU core for handling GPU(s)/CPU exchanges (use -t option to set the number of CPU threads).

ALL NEW! – Electrum Personal Server

Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server aims to make using Electrum Groestlcoin wallet more secure and more private. It makes it easy to connect your Electrum-GRS wallet to your own full node.
It is an implementation of the Electrum-grs server protocol which fulfils the specific need of using the Electrum-grs wallet backed by a full node, but without the heavyweight server backend, for a single user. It allows the user to benefit from all Groestlcoin Core's resource-saving features like pruning, blocks only and disabled txindex. All Electrum-GRS's feature-richness like hardware wallet integration, multi-signature wallets, offline signing, seed recovery phrases, coin control and so on can still be used, but connected only to the user's own full node.
Full node wallets are important in Groestlcoin because they are a big part of what makes the system be trust-less. No longer do people have to trust a financial institution like a bank or PayPal, they can run software on their own computers. If Groestlcoin is digital gold, then a full node wallet is your own personal goldsmith who checks for you that received payments are genuine.
Full node wallets are also important for privacy. Using Electrum-GRS under default configuration requires it to send (hashes of) all your Groestlcoin addresses to some server. That server can then easily spy on your transactions. Full node wallets like Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server would download the entire blockchain and scan it for the user's own addresses, and therefore don't reveal to anyone else which Groestlcoin addresses they are interested in.
Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can also broadcast transactions through Tor which improves privacy by resisting traffic analysis for broadcasted transactions which can link the IP address of the user to the transaction. If enabled this would happen transparently whenever the user simply clicks "Send" on a transaction in Electrum-grs wallet.
Note: Currently Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can only accept one connection at a time.

How do I get started with namecoin?

I'd like to get started with namecoin how can I set this up on my windows PC?
Edit: Morning update, Thanks for everyone's help on this biosupdate's post is extremely helpful.
In some ways I think this could be slightly better than bitcoin, since it actually has a use behind the coins rather than just a medium of exchange, but we'll see.
submitted by Ddraig to Namecoin [link] [comments]

I literally have tens of thousands of dollars in top-shelf hardware, looking to repurpose some before selling on eBay to build a NAS system, possibly a dedicated firewall device as well. o_O

Q1) What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.**

A1) This will be a dedicated NAS system for my home network. As such, I'm looking to have it:

- Host ##TB's of 720, 1080 & up resolution Movies and TV Shows I'm about to begin ripping from a MASSIVE DVD & Blueray collection I have.

- My kids are big on Minecraft. I understand it's possible to host your own "worlds" (or whatever they call the maps you can build) on your own "server". I think it would be pretty neat to offer them (& their friends - if can be done 'safely/securely') their own partition on one of my NAS HDD's.

- I also have accounts with a couple diff VPN companies... I understand it's possible (?) to sync said VPN's with a NAS, this might be a more relative topic on the next point/purpose...

- I'd like to be able to remotely link to this NAS for when I travel overseas and want to stream at my temp location from my house/this NAS.
______________________
Q2) What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?**

* A2) Here's where I make matters more complicated than most others would... I've been an advocate for Bitcoin and crypto-currencies in general since 2013. I invested in a small mining outfit back in 2014 (strictly Bitcoin/ASIC's). One of my buddies is the President of a large-scale mining operation (foreign and domestic) and he convinced me to dabble in the GPU mining-space. I made my first hardware purchase in Q4, 2017 and launched a small-scale GPU-Farm in my house since then. I had the rigs mining up until Q3 of 2018 (not cost-efficient to keep on, especially living in SoFlo) and since then, the hardware's been collecting dust (& pissing off my family members since they lost access to 3X rooms in the house - I won't let anyone go near my gear). One of my New Years Resolutions for 2019 was to clear out the house of all my mining equipment so that's all about to go up on eBay. So "budget" is relative to whatever I "MUST" spend if I can't repurpose any of the parts I already have on hand for this build... (Anyone having something I "need" and is looking to barter for one of the items I'll list later on in here, LMK).
______________________
Q3) When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.**

A3) IMMEDIATELY! :)
______________________
Q4) What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc\)**

A4) Well I had a half-assed idea approximately 1 year ago that it might be wise to build a bunch of 'gaming rigs' to sell on eBay with my intended repurposed mining hardware so I went on a shopping spree for like 6 months. That said; I've got a plethora of various other components that aren't even unboxed yet. 90% of the items I've purchased for this additional project were items that were marked down via MIR (mail-in-rebates) & what-not...
AFAIK, there are only 3X items I absolutely do not have which I 'MUST' find. Those would be - 1) Motherboard which accepts "ECC RAM". 2) CPU for said MOBO. 3) Said "ECC RAM".\* 
______________________
Q5) Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?**

A5) I'm located in Southwest Florida. No Microcenter's here. Best Buy is pretty much my only option although I am a member of Newegg, Amazon & Costco if that makes any difference?
______________________
Q6) If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.**

A6) In an attempt to better clean up this Q&A, I'm going to list the items I have on-hand at the end of this questionnaire in-case passers-by feel like this might be a TLDR.* (Scroll to the bottom & you'll see what I mean).
______________________
Q7) Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?**

A7) I don't think that's necessary for my intended purpose although - I'm not against it if that helps & FWIW, I'm pretty skilled @ this task already (it's not rocket science).
______________________
Q8) Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)**

A8) As stated in A4; ECC RAM is non-negotiable... RAID seems like a logical application here as well.

- This will predominantly be receiving commands from MacOS computers. I don't think that matters really but figured it couldn't hurt to let you guys know.\*

- I'd also be quite fond of implementing "PFSENSE" (or something of that caliber) applied to this system so I could give my Netgear Nighthawks less stress in that arena, plus my limited understanding of PFSENSE is that it's ability to act as a firewall runs circles around anything that comes with consumer-grade Wi-Fi routers (like my Nighthawks). Just the same, I'm open to building a second rig just for the firewall.\*

- Another desirable feature would be that it draws as little electricity from the wall as possible. (I'm EXTREMELY skilled in this arena. I have "Kill-A-Watts" to test/gauge on, as well as an intimate understanding of the differences between Silver, Gold, Platinum and Titanium rated PSU's. As well as having already measured each of the PSU's I have on-hand and taken note of the 'target TDP draw' ("Peak Power Efficiency Draw") each one offers when primed with X amount of GPU's when I used them for their original purpose.\*

- Last, but not least, sound (as in noise created from the rig). I'd like to prop this device up on my entertainment center in the living room. I've (almost) all of the top-shelf consumer grade products one could dream of regarding fans and other thermal-related artifacts.

- Almost forgot; this will be hosting to devices on the KODI platform (unless you guys have better alternative suggestions?)
______________________
Q9) Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?**

A9) Definitely! Desired theme would be WHITE. If that doesn't work for whatever reason, black or gray would suffice. Regarding "Case Size". Nah, that's not too important although I don't foresee a mini-ITX build making sense if I'm going to be cramming double digit amounts of TB in the system, Internal HDD's sounds better than a bunch of externals plugged in all the USB ports.
______________________
Q10) Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?**

A10) I don't know. If I do need a copy of Windows, I don't have one so that's something I'll have to consider I guess. I doubt that's a necessity though.

______________________
Needless to say, I have at least 1X of everything mentioned above. In most all cases, I have multiples of these items but obviously won't be needing 2X CPU's, Cases, etc...

Naturally, I have GPU's. Specifically;

At least 1X of every. Single. NVIDIA GTX 1070 TI (Yes, I have every variation of the 1070 ti made by MSI, EVGA and Zotac. The only brand I don't have is the Gigabyte line. My partners have terrible experience with those so I didn't even bother. I'm clearly not going to be needing a GPU for this build but again, I'm cool with discussing the idea of a barter if anyone reading this is in the market for one.

I also have some GTX 1080 TI's but those are already spoken for, sorry.

It's my understanding that select CPU's I have on this list are ECC Friendly and AFAIK, only 1 of my MOBO's claims to be ECC Friendly (The ASROCK AB350M PRO4), but for the life of me, I can't find any corresponding forums that confirm this and/or direct me to a listing where I can buy compatible RAM. Just the same, if I go w/ the ASROCK MOBO, that means I'd be using one of the Ryzens. Those are DEF. power hungry little buggers. Not a deal-breaker, just hoping to find something a little more conservative in terms of TDP.


In closing, I don't really need someone to hold my hand with the build part as much as figuring out which motherboard, CPU and RAM to get. Then I'm DEFINITELY going to need some guidance on what OS is best for my desired purpose. If building 2X Rigs makes sense, I'm totally open to that as well...
Rig 1 = EPIC NAS SYSTEM
Rig 2 = EPIC PFSENSE (or the like) DEDICATED FIREWALL

Oh, I almost forgot... The current routers I'm using are...
1X Netgear Nighthawk 6900P (Modem + Router)
1X Netgear Nighthawk X6S (AC 4000 I believe - Router dedicated towards my personal devices - no IoT &/or Guests allowed on this one)
1X TP-Link Archer C5 (Router). Total overkill after implementing the Nighthawks but this old beast somehow has the best range, plus it has 2X USB ports so for now, it's dedicated towards my IoT devices.
---- I also have a few other Wi-Fi routers (Apple Airport Extreme & some inferior Netgear's but I can only allocate so many WiFi Routers to so many WiFi channels w/out pissing off my neighbors) On that note, I have managed to convince my neighbors to let me in their house/WiFi configuration so we all have our hardware locked on specific, non-competing frequencies/channels so everyone's happy. :)


Please spare me the insults as I insulted myself throughout this entire venture. Part of why I did this was because when I was a kid, I used to fantasize about building a 'DREAM PC' but could never afford such. To compensate for this deficiency, I would actually print out the latest and greatest hardware components on a word document, print the lists up & tape to wall (for motivation). I was C++ certified at the age of 14 and built my first PC when I was 7. At the age of 15 I abandoned all hope in the sector and moved on to other aspirations. This entire ordeal was largely based off me finally fulfilling a childhood fantasy. On that note = mission accomplished. Now if I'm actually able to fulfill my desires on this post, I'm definitely going to feel less shitty about blowing so much money on all this stuff over the last couple years.

TIA for assisting in any way possible. Gotta love the internets!


THE END.
:)

EDIT/UPDATE (5 hours after OP) - My inbox is being inundated with various people asking for prices and other reasonable questions about my hardware being up for sale. Not to be redundant but rather to expound on my previous remarks about 'being interested in a bartetrade' with any of you here...

I did say I was going to sell my gear on eBay in the near future, I also said I wanted to trade/barter for anything relative to helping me accomplish my OP's mission(s). I'm not desperate for the $$$ but I'm also not one of those people that likes to rip other people off. That said; I value my time and money invested in this hardware and I'm only willing to unload it all once I've established I have ZERO need for any of it here in my home first. Hence my writing this lengthy thread in an attempt to repurpose at least a grand or two I've already spent.

One of the most commonly asked questions I anticipate receiving from interested bodies is going to be "How hard were you on your hardware?" Contrary to what anyone else would have probably done in my scenario which is say they were light on it whether they were or weren't, I documented my handling of the hardware, and have no problem sharing such documentation with verified, interested buyers (WHEN THE TIME COMES) to offer you guys peace of mind.

I have photo's and video's of the venture from A-Z. I am also obliged to provide (redacted) electricity bill statements where you can correlate my photo's (power draw on each rig), and also accurately deduct the excess power my house consumed with our other household appliances. Even taking into consideration how much (more) I spent in electricity from keeping my house at a constant, cool 70-72F year-round (via my Nest thermostat). Even without the rigs, I keep my AC @ 70 when I'm home and for the last 1.5-2 years, I just so happened to spend 85% of my time here at my house. When I would travel, I'd keep it at 72 for my wife & kids.
Additionally; I had each GPU 'custom' oveunderclocke'd (MSI Afterburner for all GPU's but the EVGA's).*
I doubt everyone reading this is aware so this is for those that don't.... EVGA had the brilliant idea of implementing what they call "ICX technology" in their latest NVIDIA GTX GPU's. The short(est) explanation of this "feature" goes as follows:

EVGA GPU's w/ "ICX 9 & above" have EXTRA HEAT/THERMAL SENSORS. Unlike every other GTX 1070 ti on the market, the one's with this feature actually have each of 2/2 on-board fans connected to individual thermal sensors. Which means - if you were to use the MSI Afterburner program on one of these EVGA's and create a custom fan curve for it, you'd only be able to get 1/2 of the fans to function the way intended. The other fan simply would not engage as the MSI Afterburner software wasn't designed/coded to recognize/ communicate with an added sensor (let alone sensor'S). This, in-turn, would likely result in whoever's using it the unintended way having a GPU defect on them within the first few months I'd imagine... Perhaps if they had the TDP power settings dumbed down as much as I did (60-63%), they might get a year or two out of it since it wouldn't run as near as hot, but I doubt any longer than that since cutting off 50% of the cooling system on one of these can't be ignored too long, surely capacitors would start to blow and who knows what else...
(Warning = RANT) Another interesting side-note about the EVGA's and their "Precision-X" OveUnderclocking software is that it's designed to only recognize 4X GPU's on a single system. For miners, that's just not cool. My favorite builds had 8X and for the motherboards that weren't capable of maintaining stable sessions on 8, I set up with 6X. Only my EVGA Rigs had 3 or 4X GPU's dedicated to a single motherboard. Furthermore, and as stated in an earlier paragraph, (& this is just my opinion) = EVGA SOFTWARE SUCKS! Precision X wasn't friendly with every motherboard/CPU I threw at it and their extension software for the CLC Close-Loop-Cooling/ CPU water-coolers simply didn't work on anything, even integrating into their own Precision-X software. The amount of time it took me to finally find compatible matches with that stuff was beyond maddening. (END RANT).
Which leads me to my other comments on the matter. That's what I had every single 1070 ti set at for TDP = 60-63%. Dropping the power load that much allowed me to bring down (on average) each 1070 ti to a constant 110-115W (mind you, this is only possible w/ "Titanium" rated PSU's, Platinum comes pretty damn close to the Titanium though) while mining Ethereum and was still able to maintain a bottom of 30 MH/s and a ceiling of 32 MH/s. Increasing the TDP to 80, 90, 100% or more only increased my hashrates (yields) negligibly, like 35-36 MH/s TOPS, which also meant each one was not only pulling 160-180W+ (Vs. the aforementioned 115'ish range), it also meant my rigs were creating a significantly greater amount of heat! Fortunately for the GPU's and my own personal habits, I live in South Florida where it's hot as balls typically, last winter was nothing like this one. Increasing my yields by 10-15% didn't justify increasing the heat production in my house by >30%, nor the added electricity costs from subjecting my AC handlers to that much of an extra work-load. For anyone reading this that doesn't know/understand what I'm talking about - after spending no less than 2-3 hours with each. and. every. one. I didn't play with the settings on just one and universally apply the settings to the rest. I found the 'prime' settings and documented them with a label-maker and notepad. Here's the math in a more transparent manner:

*** I NEVER LET MY GPU's BREACH 61C, EVER. Only my 8X GPU rigs saw 60-61 & it was the ones I had in the center of the build (naturally). I have REALLY high power fans (used on BTC ASIC MINERS) that were sucking air from those GPU's which was the only way I was able to obtain such stellar results while mining with them. **\*
Mining at "acceptable" heat temps (not acceptable to me, but most of the internet would disagree = 70C) and overclocking accordingly brings in X amount of yields per unit. =
'Tweaking' (underclocking) the GPU's to my parameters reduced my yield per unit from -10-15%, but it SAVED me well over 30-35% in direct electricity consumption, and an unknown amount of passive electricity consumption via creating approximately 20%+ less heat for my AC handler to combat.

I say all this extra stuff not just for anyone interested in mining with their GPU's, but really to answer (in-depth) the apparent questions you people are asking me in PM's. Something else that should help justify my claims of being so conservative should be the fact I only have/used "Platinum and Titanium" rated PSU's. Heat production, power efficiency and longevity of the hardware were ALWAYS my top priority.* . I truly thought Crypto would continue to gain and/or recover and bounce back faster than it did. If this project had maintained positive income for 12 months+, I'd have expanded one of our sites to also cater to GPU mining on a gnarly scale.

Once I have my NAS (& possibly 2nd rig for the firewall) successfully built, I'll be willing/able to entertain selling you guys some/all of the remaining hardware prior to launching on eBay. If there's something you're specifically looking for that I listed having, feel free to PM me with that/those specific item(s). Don't count on an immediate response but what you can count on is me honoring my word in offering whoever asks first right of refusal when the time comes for me to sell this stuff. Fortunately for me, PM's are time-stamped so that's how I'll gauge everyone's place in line. I hope this extra edit answers most of the questions you guys wanted to have answered and if not, sorry I guess. I'll do my best to bring light to anything I've missed out on after I realize whatever that error was/is. The only way anyone is getting first dibs on my hardware otherwise is if they either offer compelling insight into my original questions, or have something I need to trade w/.

Continuous Pool Disconnection & 0 Mh/s Speeds

What's up internet/fellow miners. About a week ago I've made the decision to turn my gaming PC to a mining rig. I've had some success solo mining with nicehashminer (Bitcoin miner) but decided that it would be better to mine Ethereum. I've followed the guide and kept coming across these issues. . . I don't know if it's because my config files are whack or another underlying issue.
(EDIT) Connected to us1.ethermine.org:4444 now i'm getting different issues. Here are my most recent logs.

Mining ERC-918 Tokens (0xBitcoin)

GENERAL INFORMATION

0xBitcoin (0xBTC) is the first mineable ERC20 token on Ethereum. It uses mining for distribution, unlike all previous ERC20 tokens which were assigned to the contract deployer upon creation. 0xBTC is the first implementation of the EIP918 mineable token standard (https://eips.ethereum.org/EIPS/eip-918), which opened up the possibility of a whole new class of mineable assets on Ethereum. Without any ICO, airdrop, pre-mine, or founder’s reward, 0xBitcoin is arguably the most decentralized asset in the Ethereum ecosystem, including even Ether (ETH), which had a large ICO.
The goal of 0xBitcoin is to be looked at as a currency and store of value asset on Ethereum. Its 21 million token hard cap and predictable issuance give it scarcity and transparency in terms of monetary policy, both things that Ether lacks. 0xBitcoin has certain advantages over PoW based currencies, such as compatibility with smart contracts and decentralized exchanges. In addition, 0xBTC cannot be 51% attacked (without attacking Ethereum), is immune from the “death spiral”, and will receive the benefits of scaling and other improvements to the Ethereum network.

GETTING 0xBITCOIN TOKENS

0xBitcoin can be mined using typical PC hardware, traded on exchanges (either decentralized or centralized) or purchased from specific sites/contracts.

-Mined using PC hardware

-Traded on exchanges such as


MINING IN A NUTSHELL

0xBitcoin is a Smart Contract on the Ethereum network, and the concept of Token Mining is patterned after Bitcoin's distribution. Rather than solving 'blocks', work is issued by the contract, which also maintains a Difficulty which goes up or down depending on how often a Reward is issued. Miners can put their hardware to work to claim these rewards, in concert with specialized software, working either by themselves or together as a Pool. The total lifetime supply of 0xBitcoin is 21,000,000 tokens and rewards will repeatedly halve over time.
The 0xBitcoin contract was deployed by Infernal_Toast at Ethereum address: 0xb6ed7644c69416d67b522e20bc294a9a9b405b31
0xBitcoin's smart contract, running on the Ethereum network, maintains a changing "Challenge" (that is generated from the previous Ethereum block hash) and an adjusting Difficulty Target. Like traditional mining, the miners use the SoliditySHA3 algorithm to solve for a Nonce value that, when hashed alongside the current Challenge and their Minting Ethereum Address, is less-than-or-equal-to the current Difficulty Target. Once a miner finds a solution that satisfies the requirements, they can submit it into the contract (calling the Mint() function). This is most often done through a mining pool. The Ethereum address that submits a valid solution first is sent the 50 0xBTC Reward.
(In the case of Pools, valid solutions that do not satisfy the full difficulty specified by the 0xBitcoin contract, but that DO satisfy the Pool's specified Minimum Share Difficulty, get a 'share'. When one of the Miners on that Pool finds a "Full" solution, the number of shares each miner's address has submitted is used to calculate how much of the 50 0xBTC reward they will get. After a Reward is issued, the Challenge changes.
A Retarget happens every 1024 rewards. In short, the Contract tries to target an Average Reward Time of about 60 times the Ethereum block time. So (at the time of this writing):
~13.9 seconds \* 60 = 13.9 minutes
If the average Reward Time is longer than that, the difficulty will decrease. If it's shorter, it will increase. How much longer or shorter it was affects the magnitude with which the difficulty will rise/drop, to a maximum of 50%. * Click Here to visit the stats page~ (https://0x1d00ffff.github.io/0xBTC-Stats) to see recent stats and block times, feel free to ask questions about it if you need help understanding it.

MINING HARDWARE

Presently, 0xBitcoin and "Alt Tokens" can be mined on GPUs, CPUs, IGPs (on-CPU graphics) and certain FPGAs. The most recommended hardware is nVidia graphics cards for their efficiency, ubiquity and relatively low cost. As general rules, the more cores and the higher core frequency (clock) you can get, the more Tokens you will earn!

How to get started on GPU mining on Pizza Pool (gpu.pizza) [Nvidia/linux/ClosedSource]

Sunday morining the 0xBitcoin Discord got a surprise from @0xPiZzA...
hi guys. i am 0x778, again! has it gone a long time and you miss me? 8^D= i wait two more weeks since last time, want to check you to see if you are ready for gpu and 0xBITCOIN. today i am ready to release Closed Source GPU Miner for everyone, works for my new Mining Pool name " PiZzA Pool " ! \o/ new pizzaminer is ALPHA software : means speed good but has bugs. Linux only OS. new pool PiZzA Pool also ALPHA but in testing now, available for your to try. credit system is counting. automatic payment, i am building it now. XD lets GO for best! i am not support Help with this software, please figure it out. i believe you can do it. PiZzA Pool going to donate 2% to 0xBITCOIN project / Infernal Toast who will make Open Source Gpu Miner in competition with pizzaminer and Prevail in Triumph. .o/\o/ when you ready, more info : http://gpu.pizza/ :heart: Have Fun, Love 0xBITCOIN 8^D= ~~ 0xPiZzA :heart: 
GPU mining!!!
PiZzA pool - http://gpu.pizza/
Before we start...
THIS SOFTWARE IS CLOSED SOURCE
I DON'T OFFER ANY WARRANTIES ON THIS MINING SOFTWARE
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
Yet the miner works and I've been paid by the pool (71.17318134 0xBTC):
https://etherscan.io/address/0x79c5BE8f4098208006C7940cF72dAE71738b39b6#tokentxns
1. Prepare your mining rig
Download required programs:
http://gpu.pizza/#download
https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop
https://rufus.akeo.ie/
Using this software is risky, but you can minimize the risk by planning. Ideally you want a sanitized GPU mining rig.
This means:
  • No private key!!!
  • No saved passwords!!!
  • No files you are not comfortable with losing!!!
Use this as a basic security audit if you have an existing GPU mining rig.
2. Download and Install Ubuntu
You can Google this.
I believe in you, you will figure it out. :-D
But get an .iso and use Rufus to make a bootable USB.
3. Install Nvidia Drivers
Don't download them from the Nvidia website. Use repositories instead. This guide worked for me: http://www.linuxandubuntu.com/home/how-to-install-latest-nvidia-drivers-in-linux
Make sure you are connected to wifi at this stage. The error message will not clue you into the fact that your internet is not working.
4. Run the pizzaminer software
Details are in the README.TXT. But essentially all you need to do is run the program. Make sure in properties it has permissions to exectute. Also run each miner in their own terminal instance.
http://gpu.pizza/download/pizzaminer-v0.0.1-alpha/README.txt
CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=0 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=1 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=2 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=3 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... 
5. Configure Autostart
Inside the directory where pizza miner is create a file (autostart) that is executable and contains your payment address:
#!/bin/sh xterm -e -hold CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=0 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... & xterm -e -hold CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=1 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... & xterm -e -hold CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=2 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... & xterm -e -hold CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES=3 ./pizzaminer 0x0123AbC... & ... 
Then from Start>Startup Applications add the following task:
Name: Autostart pizzaminer Command: autostart (browse for file created above)
7. Optimization
v0.0.3 CPU optimization
Before the CPU was bottle necking the GPU utilization in certain cases. v0.0.3 fixes this and it's stable for me. With multiple cards on a Celeron G39XX you can expect a 50%+ boost in overall hash rate.
Overclocking (EXPERIMENTAL!!!)
This command should allow basic overclocking, monitor free initialization. Honestly haven't had much success in the overclocking department. Let me know if you do!
sudo nvidia-xconfig -enable-all-gpus -cool-bits=28 --allow-empty-initial-configuration 
6. Known Hashrates
GPU MH/s MH/s MH/s
Version v0.0.1 v0.0.2 v0.0.3
GTX 970 (40 MH/s) (55 MH/s) (75 MH/s)
GTX 1050 Ti (40 MH/s) (75 MH/s) (90 MH/s)
GTX 1060 (60-70** MH/s) (100 MH/s) (150 MH/s)
GTX 1070 Ti (90** MH/s) () ()
GTX 1080 Ti (140** MH/s) () (325** MH/s)
**unconfirmed
Please tell me your hashrates to add to this table!!!

0xBitcoin (0xBTC) nVidia CUDA Miner, Pre-Built for Windows and Instructions. Newbie-friendly!

** PLEASE READ THE README! See the end of this post for more troubleshooting tips! Thanks! **
NOTE: I've retracted build TOFU-RC1.1 because of an issue communicating shares to the pool. I'll put another build together for Windows X64, and any info you will need to run it, once we figure out what the issue is. Thanks for your patience! RC1 does not show a hashrate report, but you can verify your approx. hashrate on the TMP pool's stats page.
** This build brings CUDA mining functionality from Linux to Windows X64 users. I tried to make it as easy to set up as possible. This is still software in-the-works, so please report any problems you might have here or at the Discord so we can figure them out! Thanks! **
Here's my attempt at making the CUDA miner work on Windows, and making it as painless as I can! Hopefully this is fairly "plug and play". :) I also added some functionality. I hope you guys like it! The enclosed README.txt should explain how to run and use it and solutions to some common problems.
Build Mag517-RC1 for Windows X64: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1QWF_S7mfLGDk2YARC1ZZBYkmpqILLr0h
I am going to commit my changes to the GitHub, once I set it up.
Hurrah to the whole OPEN SOURCE 0xBitcoin miner team on the Discord! Including Infernal Toast, Mikers, @0x1d00ffff, developers of code this project is based on, coder of the original CPU miner and 1000x "Kaio-Ken" version... plus everyone else who knows who they are!
Good Luck! May I suggest we join forces and point our miners at the TMP pool for the time being: http://tokenminingpool.com:8586 so that we can get some blocks and give PizzaPool some competition, with lower-fee pools and open-source, community supported miners. Let's take back the game! ;)
Donations [ETH/0xBTC] welcome! Help my broke ass buy groceries. 0xa8b8ea4C083890833f24817b4657888431486444
TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS:

INTENSITY

Is your machine's GUI too slow when mining? Try reducing intensity with the Block and Thread settings (Read on), turn off Hardware Acceleration in Windows and applications like FireFox, Chrome and Discord to make them draw with the CPU more, not the busy GPU.
If you want it buttery-smooth, boot up with your monitor connected to a separate graphics card and mine on the non-display adapter. If your CPU has on-chip graphics, you can probably hook up to your motherboard's video output (not your graphics card's). Make sure the processor or onboard graphics are enabled and set as default in your BIOS/UEFI setup.
THE WINDOW CLOSES IMMEDIATELY
This is a command-line miner, so you must run it in a command prompt / powershell to see any output if it closes prematurely. Most often, the error you're looking at is the next one:

I GET A WEIRD DEPENDENCY ERROR, LOTS OF .JS STUFF

Make sure you have CUDA v9.1 or latest installed. Install the patches that are on the same download page after you install the main package. Make sure the paths have been added to your Environment Variables in the System Control Panel, Advanced Settings. Reboot or at least log out and back in to apply the new paths before running the miner.

WANT TO MINE WITH MORE THAN ONE GPU?

Remove an SLI or Crossfire bridge, if present. Disable SLI/Crossfire. Rename the EXE file to something else. Run both instances and use the nVidia Control Panel (right-click Desktop, nVidia option) to configure which card should run which process. This neat trick was discovered by @DigitalApathy on the Discord server!

KERNEL FAILS TO LAUNCH

Investigate the reported error, if any. This is most often caused by too high Block / Thread settings. It can also mean the GPU is busy, as in the miner did not gracefully close and release the device. Reboot or otherwise reset the card via software.
POOL NOTE: I strongly recommend the use of TokenMiningPool and 0xPool as of 03.10.2018. This is so that we can build up a large enough hashpower to compete with the Pizza Pool (closed-source mining pool with DevFees.) Right now, PizzaPool is getting most of the blocks and the community pools aren't getting a fair shake. Let's join forces on TMP and 0xPool!
Enjoy! - Lt. Tofu

What is EIP:918?

EIP:918 is an Ethereum Improvement Proposal for standardizing mineable token distribution using Proof of Work.
The primary driver behind the standard is to address the very broken ICO model that currently plagues the Ethereum network. Token distribution via the ICO model and it’s derivatives has always been susceptible to illicit behavior by bad actors. New token projects are centralized by nature because a single entity must handle and control all of the initial coins and all of the the raised ICO money. By distributing tokens via an alternative ‘Initial Mining Offering’ (or IMO), the ownership of the token contract no longer belongs with the deployer at all and the deployer is ‘just another user.’ As a result, investor risk exposure utilizing a mined token distribution model is significantly diminished. This standard is intended to be standalone, allowing maximum interoperability with ERC20, ERC721, and future token standards.
The most effective economic side effect of Satoshi Nakamoto’s desire to secure the original Bitcoin network with Proof of Work hash mining was tethering the coin to real computing power, thereby removing centralized actors. Transitioning the responsibility of work back onto individual miners, government organizations have no jurisdiction over the operation of a pure mined token economy. Oversight is removed from an equation whereby miners are providing economic effort in direct exchange of a cryptographic commodity. This facilitates decentralized distribution and establishes all involved parties as stakeholders. The ERC918 standard allows projects to be funded through decentralized computing power instead of centralized, direct-fiat conversion.
The Ethereum blockchain in its current state exists as a thriving ecosystem which allows any individual to store immutable records in a permission-less, invulnerable and transparent manner. Recently, there have been proposals to mitigate some initial ICO investment risks through the introduction of the DAICO model that relies on timed and automated value transfers via the smart contract tapping mechanism. However, this does not align a token smart contract as a non-security and still has the potential to put investors at risk if not implemented carefully, relying on centralized actors to be fair and community intended. Allowing users of the network direct access to tokens by performing computations as a proof of work supplies allows any smart contract to distribute a token in a safe and controlled manner similar to the release of a commodity.
As of 2017, all Ethereum token distribution methods were flawed and susceptible to Sybil attacks. A Sybil attack is a form of computer security attack where one person pretends to be many people with multiple computer accounts in order to manipulate a system in a malicious way. ICOs and airdrops are highly susceptible to these type of attacks so there is no way to verify that all ERC20 tokens distributed by the deployer were doled out fairly or unfairly. Proof of Work distribution is resistant to Sybil attacks. This means that ERC918 tokens are among the first trustless Ethereum tokens in the world. The distribution of ERC918 tokens is fair because they are allotted via an open, decentralized mathematical algorithm (that anyone can view on the mainnet blockchain) and not a centralized human monarchy.
ERC918’s first incarnation (and inspiration) was the 0xBitcoin project that launched in early 2018. Since then, several projects have realized the standard in innovative and creative ways. Catether (0xCATE) erupted early and additionally mints payback tokens during transfer operations to offset gas costs. 0xGold and 0xLitecoin each implement the first on-chain merge-mining with 0xBitcoin and the Mineable Gem project extends the standard onto a non-fungible collectible artifacts, whereby each gem has a unique mining difficulty. The Mineable project is a newer initiative that provides users with the ability to create mineable ERC20 tokens on-chain without writing a line of code and includes a virtualized hashing artifact market that allows miners to purchase on-chain vGPUs to improve mining difficulty and rewards.

[GUIDE][Ongoing] How to Build the Open-Source CUDA 0xBTC Miner on Windows! Step-By-Step.

I will be updating this thread today with new solutions to common problems and more details to make the process smoother. Keep an eye on this thread as I will be editing it with each new revision.
Linux build guide coming next (probably tonight). And a simpler guide on how to use the pre-built version. Enjoy, and I appreciate/welcome any feedback! Thanks!
My Experiences Building 0xBitcoin GPU miner on Windows 10 x64. Tutorial Version 1 (pre-alpha status, lol)
(by: Lt.Tofu [Mag517] on the 0xBitcoin discord. )
You will no doubt have to google a few things, but as I revise this tutorial that number should decrease. Let me know how it can be made more helpful. Note: Your Mileage can, and probably will, Vary!
First you'll have to install Git and Node.js (version 8.something). Let me know if you can't find it. You also need to install CUDA. The latest version seems to be fine. Also get any updates that are listed with the main installer package. Make sure you get drivers that play nice with your GPU for mining (google around to find experiences of other miners with your hardware.) Once you install these programs, YOU MUST LOG OUT AND BACK IN to update your PATHs! You're best off restarting after installing CUDA anyway.
WARNING: CUDA comes with a graphics driver! If you don't want it replacing your own, uncheck it! Also, DON'T install GeForce Experience, and if you have it, I advise uninstalling it. It might mess with your drivers and can prevent you from setting certain parameters in the nV control panel you might need.
Get the latest master from: https://github.com/0xbitcoin/0xbitcoin-gpuminer or clone it (google that) to your disk. Extract it somewhere handy, I'll put it in c:\development\0xbitcoin-gpuminer-master Open an Admin PowerShell (windows key + X, then press A in the menu that appears. You can also select File Menu from the upper left from within your build dir and choose Powershell as Admin.) Navigate to your build directory.
cd ../../
cd Development
cd 0xbitcoin-gpuminer-master
Now you want to run yarn to get the dependencies for the build. But first you need yarn. Do these.
npm install yarn
(consider doing npm install -g yarn to install it globally for other build dirs.)
yarn
Now yarn should run and install python and some other goodies. You might also need to do:
npm install windows-build-tools
Now you will need to set the "magic numbers" to match your GPU.
In your favorite text editor, open c:\development\0xbitcoin-gpuminer-master\cpp\hybridminer\cuda_sha3.cu At the very top you should see two #define directives. Change the numeric value in these to match your GPU. Here is mine as an example. I have a GTX960, which has 1024 CUDA cores, so I set 32 for both of these. Which conveniently multiplies out to 1024. I was able to find some starter values by running another miner I had lying around, XMR-STAK, and looking at the nvidia.txt it generates with # of threads, blocks. It was giving 24 and 28 and I adjusted to 32 and 32. I continue to play with these numbers to see if I can eke out extra performance or lower the intensity to make Windows more responsive while mining.
EDIT: Better performance on the GTX960 achieved with settings: 128 block size, 36 threads. EDIT2: Maxwell 2nd-Gen GPUs like this can be sped up further by enabling Optimize for Compute in the nV control panel. Might report "access denied" if you have GeForce Experience installed- all the more reason to remove it or not install it. You might also turn "DSR Factors" to 2.00x and see if it helps your mining speed.
CUDA and Drivers all installed? Good! Now check your paths. Start Menu, type Environment until you see Environment Variables come up. You can also go to the old System control panel, advanced settings to do this. Verify that there's a CUDA_PATH and a CUDA_PATH_9.1 pointing to a directory like this one (check your own:)
C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit\CUDA\v9.1
If you get an error later on about nvcc.exe not being found, or other CUDA dependency-sounding errors, try defining $(CUDA_PATH) the exact same way. Remember to log out/in again or reboot to apply these new paths.
Ready for the moment of truth. Execute these commands in order in c:\development\0xbitcoin-gpuminer-master.
(EDIT: Want a shortcut? node-gyp clean and then npm install instead to automate the process!) (Another option: try node-gyp run build).
node-gyp clean
node-gyp configure
node-gyp build
node-gyp install
If all were successful, then proceed, otherwise we need to fix something. As people report errors I will add solutions *here.
node index.js
This SHOULD run the program in your Power Shell. You can do this in a regular, non-elevated one, as Admin should not be necessary after you installed those dependencies earlier. This was the case for me, but run as Admin if you encounter a problem so that you can check this off the list of potential culprits.
Once in the miner, enter these commands.
account select 0xthisisyouraddress You should be asked to enter the keystore's password. If you haven't set up an account yet, do 'account new' instead and follow the steps. Then come back and use the above command in the future. On additional computers you wish to mine on, you should in theory only need to enter the address, not transfer the keystore to each one.
pool select http://tokenminingpool.com:8586/
alternatively:
pool select http://0xpool.io:8586/
pool mine cuda
If this worked, you should be mining. Look for solutions and check the Statistics page on your chosen mining pool.
... More to come ...

Dev Update: #5

Hi Community - the latest 0.1.5 is now public on github.
This release should fix the issues seen on Tuesday. A rule checking the validity of Proof-of-Proof transactions in a block was behaving inconsistently. This was brought to light by the extreme behavior on Bitcoin TestNet with many blocks generated in a short period of time (an edge case that would not occur in MainNet). We made NodeCore better handle this edge case.
Relevant documentation:
Thanks all!
