I'm looking into developing this for supporting low power arm devices such as the Raspberry Pi
Hey, this may be what I'm looking for. I'm an unraid user as well.
Is this using the latest version of XPlotter as the plotter?
Do you also have the Blago miner in a Docker?
I will be given this a try and send some Burst your way.
@jonnyczi I did a bit of googling and found that there is an ARM platform with 2x USB 3.0 ports on board and 4-core CPU (though it costs around $100 in my country) - ODROID-XU4. This might be a good candidate to experiment with
Example of CKR pool version. Its like a fork from Lexicons pool code. Both are good and each has an advantage. CKR pool code stores Historic shares for (My pool) 362 rounds and will stay until which they should slowing go down. Couple other things are also different so will have to check it out yourself!
@haitch since last version you can use e.g. ... 'burstcoin.faucet.maxClaimsPerAccount=2' that will limit the claims per account, so the sort makes no sense if you use that one. It is checked via blockchain, so no way to cheat that. (not getting reset on faucet restart)
@Marc some portions of the code were deprecated and unimplemented at the beggining of Burst because it didn't made sense to keep it... @vExact I guess that is possible... Burst is already hybrid since it can be mined with PoC or PoW although it is not efficiently to mine with PoW but the entire mining system is built over a PoW algo...
Its been 2 days mining still didn't see any burst added in my wallet can anyone tell me..
you don't automatically get burst simply for mining, there are a couple things at play here, the first is your pool must WIN a block, that is, have the lowest deadline of all the deadlines submitted to the network, second you must have submitted a deadline within a certain mathematical formula that your pool uses to award shares of those won blocks... different pools have different formulas, and some of those formulas are dramatically negative for small to medium sized miners...
the first step in mining burst is to find the correct pool for your size of plots, if you have a small amount like 10TB or less you will need to find a pool that has an unlimited deadline so that you are capable of submitting a deadline every round, so that you get counted into their mathematical formulas to receive a share of any winnings, but once again, you don't get anything if the pool doesn't win a block...
the greatest mistake smaller miners make is joining a pool that wins a lot of blocks but has a very short deadline, thus they rarely ever receive any winnings from that pool because they never submit deadlines to be counted towards any winnings, they simply thought if they joined the biggest pool they would get rewarded, but thats simply not the case because most of those pools have short deadlines which you will rarely find and thus rarely ever receive any rewards for mining...
so what are my recommendations? (personal opinions vary on this)
0-5TB = unlimited deadline pool
5-10TB = 360 day deadline pool
10-20TB = 180 day deadline pool
20-30TB = 90 day deadline pool
30-40TB = 45 day deadline pool
etc etc etc
you can see how this progressively goes down with the greater size of space you commit, its not an exact must happen scale, but you can see the general idea... but one thing I see WAY too often is people with just one or two hard drives on a pool with a day or two deadline, they will see next to nothing for burst compared to if they joined a pool of the correct deadline for their size... but their pool still has to win...
@luxe Hello, I want to create some material of burstcoin, in spanish, and thinking, the simbol that identifies exactly the spanish language is "ñ", I thought to use something like this "Burstcoiñ" without touch the original Burst logo, can I do it? do I have your permision to do it and use it?
first time ever, I have 16GB and it helps me defrag the plots. I use fastcopy x64 with a 12 GB buffer to transfer a fragmented plot from one drive to another eliminating the fragments. Also great with plot optimiser. I switched the swapfile off in windows its much more responsive in windows 10 and most of the snappy GUI in this version doesnt actually mean its a responsive system. My theory is windows 7 pushed the boundaries with GPU assisted GUI for glass effects now its all slate with later versions just makes it snappy on the surface through gpu.
