Can gaming consoles be used as a Bitcoin mining platform

[Offer] I am skilled with tech repair (game consoles, phones, laptops, desktops), I can diagnose issues with software (OS X, Windows, and Linux), I'm very good with cars and repairs, and dabble in Bitcoin Mining. I'm also a nurse at a hospital if you have any medical questions

Lets say.. $1 per issue I solve? Sound fair?
I'm self taught at all of those above (except the nursing part). I haven't focused on just "one" field because I'm too interested in everything. The only credentials I can provide (if you need proof) is this:
I'm prescribed adderall. I take too many. I've filled numerous notebooks about the subjects above. Here's some pics if there's any doubt:

Should I pursue an IT career with my limitations, or would it be better to aim for something else?

I'm in a quandry, and I need to make some very important decisions very quickly.

Background:
Everyone I've ever met in my entire life has two people somewhere in their social circle who's number they keep on hand:
1) That guy you know who can fix your car.
2) That guy you know who can fix your computer.
I'm the second one.
I have no formal education of any kind, I have no fancy certifications that I can wave around to prove that I know what I'm talking about. But everyone always comes to me any time their computer, or their phone, or their Roku, or their *anything* breaks, because they know that if it uses electricity and it's got a problem, I can get it working.
I've taught myself 4 different programming languages (5 if you count Bash) with no official education, just trial and error and decent self-education skills. I've set up and administered a Linux server in my home for more almost 10 years now, I've built my own custom computers from scratch, I've set up private VPN networks, I've started and run my own Bitcoin mining node, I've got 4 Raspberry Pi's set up around my house that I've customized for various purposes (one is a DIY NEST, one is used for run a motion-detection security suite, one is set up as a NAS media server, and one is made into a RetroPie, just for fun), I've installed and upgraded OS's, I've configured system auto-backups for Windows and Linux, I've set up and troubleshooted RAID systems, and I've experimented with mesh networks. I've hacked into and put custom firmware and software on 4 cellphone models, 2 tablet models, and 5 different types of video game consoles. All of this I did entirely by self-education - I do know this stuff, and the things I don't know I've proven I can teach myself.
Here's my problem: formal education is expensive. I'm 35 and I'm about to be supporting a family, I won't have the time to go back to school for 3-4 years, and I sure as hell won't be able to afford tens of thousands of dollars in debt just to prove that I can be trusted to know what I'm talking about, or at least to be able to familiarize myself with any given problem in a reasonable amount of time.
Adding to my uncertainty, I recently had the opportunity to talk to a man who had fallen out of the IT field - he told me his story about getting laid off from his high-paying job and deciding to travel abroad for a while. Apparently he spent 3 months traveling around Europe with a friend of his, and when he got back he couldn't find a job because apparently "3 months is a long time to be out of the game." He now works as the late-shift manager at a local CVS. This makes me question whether I even want to be pursuing an IT career at all.
Alternatively, I have a company that's interested in me for what is essentially a trade field - among other things, I could join them and end up becoming a licensed electrician - I'm given to understand the trade fields pay decently, you can support a family on one and have a decent home. And to be honest, that is my definition of success - home, family, kids, and enough extra time to host a Dungeons and Dragons game after church on Sunday. That's all I want.
Am I barking up the wrong tree? Should I just take the electrician job and run with it? How hard is it to get a job in IT without any formal education? Is there an unknown unknown somewhere in my situation that I'm just not seeing?

Vertnode - An automated solution for installing Vertcoin node(s) on Single Board Computers

Hello Vertcoin Community,
Eager to contribute to the Vertcoin Community I began creating step by step walkthrough guides on how to get a Vertcoin node up and running on a Raspberry Pi, Raspberry Pi Zero and Intel NUC. Along with information to get a Vertcoin node up and running was also optional steps to install p2pool-vtc.
I decided that while this step by step guide might be helpful to a few, a setup script may prove to be useful to a wider range of people. I have this script to a point where I think it may be productive to share with a bigger audience, for those who are brave and have this hardware sitting around or like to tinker with projects; I invite you to test this setup script if you are interested, if you run into errors any sort of verbose console output of the error proves to be extremely helpful in troubleshooting.
The script was designed to produce a “headless” server... meaning we will not be using a GUI to configure Vertcoin or check to see how things are running. In fact, once the server is set up, you will only interact with it using command line calls over SSH. The idea is to have this full node be simple, low-power, with optimized memory usage and something that “just runs” in your basement, closet, etc.
Why run a headless node on a Single Board Computer?
The idea is to have this full node be simple, low-power, with optimized memory usage and something that “just runs” in your basement, closet, etc.
Required: USB Flash Drive 6GB - 32GB
Please note that the script was designed for Single Board Computers first and looks for an accessible USB Flash Drive to use for storing the blockchain and swap file, as constant writing to a microSD can degrade the health of the microSD.
Supports

Hardware

All of the hardware listed above is hardware that I have personally tested / am testing on myself. The plan is to continue expanding my arsenal of single board computers and continue to add support for more hardware to ensure as much compatibility as possible.
Functionality
It is worth noting that LIT can be ran with multiple configurations, the ones displayed in the Post Installation Report reflect values that run LIT with the Vertcoin Mainnet. Please be aware that the Vertcoin Testnet chain has not been mined 100% of the time in the past, if you make transactions on the Vertcoin testnet that do not go through it is likely because the chain has stopped being mined.
BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR COINS, ONLY TEST WITH WHAT YOU ARE OKAY WITH LOSING IF YOU USE THE MAINNET.

Vertnode | Automated Vertcoin Node Installation Script

https://github.com/e-corp-sam-sepiol/vertnode

Recommended: Use Etcher to install the chosen OS to your microSD card / USB flash drive.

If you intend on installing Ubuntu Server 16.04 to your Intel NUC please use Etcher to install the .iso to your USB flash drive.
https://etcher.io/
PLEASE NOTE THIS SCRIPT MAY GIVE AN ERROR. THIS IS THE NATURE OF TESTING. PLEASE REPORT YOUR ERRORS IF YOU WANT THEM TO BE FIXED/RESOLVED. THANK YOU FOR BETTERING THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SCRIPT.

Ubuntu Server 16.04 Setup Details

You can use different clients to ssh into your node. One option is using PuTTY or Git Bash on Windows which is included in the desktop version of Git. If you are using Linux you can simply open a new terminal window and ssh to the IP address of your node (hardware you intend installing the Vertcoin node on).
You will need to know the IP address of your node, this can be found on your router page.
ssh 192.168.1.5 -l pi For example, this command uses ssh to login to 192.168.1.5 using the -l login name of pi. The IP address of your node will likely be different for you, in this example I am logging into a Raspberry Pi which has a default login name of pi.
A brief list of commands that can be used to check on the Vertcoin node status:
vertcoin-cli getblockchaininfo | Grab information about your blockchain
vertcoin-cli getblockcount | Grab the current count of blocks on your node
vertcoin-cli getconnectioncount | Grab the current count of connections to your node. A number of connections larger than 8 means that you have incoming connections to your node. The default settings are to make 8 outgoing connections. If you want incoming connections please port forward your Raspberry Pi in your Router settings page.
vertcoin-cli getpeerinfo | Grab the information about the peers you have connected to / are connected to
vertcoin-cli getnettotals | Grab network data, how much downloaded/upload displayed in bytes
tail -f ~/.vertcoin/debug.log | Output the latest lines in the Vertcoin debug.log to see verbose information about the Vertcoin daemon (ctrl+c to stop)
Thank you to all who have helped me and inspired me thus far, @b17z, @jamesl22, @vertcoinmarketingteam, @canen, @flakfired, @etang600, @BDF, @tucker178, @Xer0
This work is dedicated to the users of Vertcoin, thank you for making this possible.
7/20/2018 Thank you @CommodoreAmiga for the incredibly generous tip <3

ShionCoin Console Basics

The following is a brief overview of the commands provided by the "shc" utility console program.
The utility program "shc" communication with the server (shcoind) are restricted to the local host that the service is running. You must use the stratum API in order to access the server from a remote machine.
A sub-set of all the commands are provided here. This guide attempts to concentrate on commonly used commands that are useful. Run "shc help" for a full list of commands. Run "shc help " for details about running that particular command.
You can enter an interactive mode by running "shc --prompt".
Run the daemon with "shcoind --debug" in order to print additional information to the log file (on linux, "/valib/share/shcoind.log") for diagnostic purposes.
ShionCoin "pub-key" coin addresses typically starts with "S" or "R". A "script address" will start with "1" and a seg-wit address will start with "3". Coin addresses are verified when entered on the command-line in order to ensure that the address is prudent in respect to the coin interface.
All fees for extended transactions, such as creating context and aliases, are either stored (for update purposes) in a local extended account and/or are provided as mining fees. You can use the "wallet.donate" command to intentionally create a transaction which includes a specified mining reward value.

Wallet Commands

The wallet commands provides capabilities to transfer funds and manage accounts. Each account can contain several coin addresses and has a counter-part "extended account" that is not visible.
Wallet Info: wallet.info
Display statistical and runtime information on wallet operations.
shc wallet.info { "version": 3010000, "walletversion": 60000, "balance": 658, "keypoololdest": 1517000561, "keypoolsize": 101 }
Create Coin Address: wallet.new
The "wallet.new" command is used to create a normal (non seg-wit) coin address and associate it with an account name. Coin addresses may be automatically generated for accounts, for example in order to return "change" in a fund transfer transaction. All change is directly returned to the associated account.
shc wallet.new test S2fzfzf1SStvaMzjGpCtYKxY3t8PXus9Ci
List Accounts: wallet.list
The "wallet.list" command provides a balance of all accounts in the coin wallet.
shc wallet.list { "": 0, "bank": 658, "system": 0 }
Three accounts are created by default. The "" account receives coinbase rewards which are then distributed to users based on their stratum stats. The "bank" account is a 0.1% cut of the rewards received from the stratum mining pool. The "system" account is currently reserved for a cpu-miner which attempts a single mining operation each time new task work is assigned to miners. The frequency of how often this occurs is based on tracking the "luck" of past attempts.
List Coin Addresses: wallet.listaddr
The "wallet.listaddr" command will list all of the coin addresses associated with an account.
shc wallet.listaddr test ["S2fzfzf1SStvaMzjGpCtYKxY3t8PXus9Ci"]
Create Transaction: wallet.send
The "wallet.send" command is the primary method of sending funds.
All ShionCoin transactions are sent with at least the 0.0001 SHC minimum fee. Providing the minimum fee is provided, any fee can is permitted and affects the priority of the transaction.
shc wallet.send bank S2fzfzf1SStvaMzjGpCtYKxY3t8PXus9Ci 10 307711dace8c0583b744af8acd1df2073e36b0c7a54b8830a15ae146f8c22ddb
Test Create Transaction: wallet.tsend
You can "test send" a transaction in order to determine the aproximate fee and size that would result.
shc wallet.tsend bank SLbnKamvSx8FhaBNpHUwffFDLZ16J8phdX 10 { "amount": 10, "tx-amount": 98.999900, "size": 300, "virt-size": 226, "fee": 0.000100, "inputs": 1, "priority": 1085539000000 }
Create Batch Transaction(s): wallet.bsend
The "wallet.bsend" command allows you to transfer funds that are more complicated than would be permitted in a single transaction. Multiple transactions will be created, as neccessary, in order to send the specified coin value. The total value commited to be sent may be lower than the value requested under certain circumstances.
Create Certified Transaction: wallet.csend
The "wallet.csend" associated a pre-created certificate with the coin transfer. The certificate may be used to associate with the certificate, or provide a method to identity the source of the funds.
shc wallet.csend bank SLbnKamvSx8FhaBNpHUwffFDLZ16J8phdX 10
Create Stamp Transaction: wallet.stamp
The "wallet.stamp" command allows you to create a short message (up to 135 characters), or reference a geodetic location, to associate with a local coin address. The stamp transaction is the exclusive method of claiming spring matix location coins. Creating a stamp in the format "geo:," will result in a single SHC coin, once processed on the network, being rewarded for all locations not yet discovered in the spring matrix. A minimum transaction fee (0.0001) is applied for each stamp transaction created.
Use the "ctx.findloc" command in order to search for locations active in the sprint matrix.
Validate Address: wallet.donate
Donated coins are added to the upcoming block reward. Donations may be optionally associated with a certificate. The maximum donation value in a single transaction is 500 coins. Donations are associated with the coin address that generates them, and may contain a geodetic stamp depending on configuration and availability.
The total cost will include the donation coin value specified plus a minimum transaction fee (0.0001 SHC).

Validate Address: wallet.validate
The "wallet.validate" command returns general information about the coin address specified, including whether the coin address is contained in the local wallet.
shc wallet.validate SLbnKamvSx8FhaBNpHUwffFDLZ16J8phdX { "isvalid": true, "address": "SLbnKamvSx8FhaBNpHUwffFDLZ16J8phdX", "ismine": true, "account": "system" }
Validate Address: wallet.key
Obtain a code that identifies the private key of a coin address.

Create String Context: ctx.findloc
Search for a location by it's name or with geodetic cordinates.
The "ctx.findloc" will scan an area and attempt to find a location within it. This area includes a span of about 100 sq. miles. The closest location with the smallest precision found will be returned. In addition, geodetic information provided by the share library is also utilized.
shc ctx.findloc "geo:46.9,114.2" { "name": "missoula, mt", "summary": "Montana", "zone": "America/Denver", "code": "MUNI", "country": "US", "geo": "46.94000,114.04000", "type": "Municipal Zone", "springable": "false" } shc ctx.findloc "Missoula, MT" { "name": "missoula, mt", "summary": "Montana", "zone": "America/Denver", "code": "MUNI", "country": "US", "geo": "46.94000,114.04000", "type": "Municipal Zone", "springable": "false" }
Note: The "springable" value denotes whether the geodetic location can be claimed in the SHC spring matrix (see "wallet.stamp").
Create String Context: ctx.getloc
Print detailed information about a particular location by it's name or geodetic cordinates.
The "ctx.getloc" command requires specific cordinates to be specified when a latitude and longitude is specified.
ctx.getloc "Missoula Creek" ctx.getloc geo:46.9846,114.1213
Note: The "springable" value denotes whether the geodetic location can be claimed in the SHC spring matrix (see "wallet.stamp").
Create String Context: ctx.setstr
Create a text format context value. This establishes a simple name=value relationship.
Context names are stored as hash keys. Therefore, the string name of the context key must be known before-hand in order to perform the lookup. A small label is also provided as part of the context record which includes a snippet (or all of) the context name.
Context records are signed against the coin address that paid to generate the transaction. Context transaction typically cost about 25 SHC or less to create. A context will expire two years after the date at which it is either created or updated. The owner can update a context by creating a new one with the same name as a pre-existing one. The "context hash" that identifies a context is also the key hash of it's label. The context is shown as part of the transaction details.
shc ctx.setstr test "test name" "test value" { "version": 3, "label": "ab5b128ce3674f81f0271efbbbb191fed56e9a80 test name (1zgfTHd5BQA)", "expire": "Mar 23 08:28:39 2020", "flags": 10244, "signature": "e0539d3ecb54c5c0a29ccd69f0b03dfdfb58bc24", "hash": "ab5b128ce3674f81f0271efbbbb191fed56e9a80", "valuesize": 10, "valuecrc": "1zgfTHd5BQA", "tx": "0dbf21191091e33ad7be3b1ce1983ffffdbedeb804e3ce934021f0fad038d50e" }
Create Geodetic Context: ctx.setloc
The "ctx.setloc" command creates contextual information about a specific place.
The command includes information about a location zipcode, name, and description. In addition, an optional place type code, country code, and web-url can be specified.
The place type corrosponds to one of the codes returned from the "ctx.loctypes" command.
This command has two different modes. One corrosponds to giving a name to a particular geodetic latitude and longitude corindate, and the other includes providing details about that particular location. A single location (as specified by latitude and longitude) may have multiple names, but it limited to a single set of details. Although some common places may be reserved from use (such as common city names), the application of detailed information to a geodetic location comes on a first-come-first-serve basis. Note that context information expires after two years.
The size of the area being referenced is dependent on the place type specified. For example, "AREA" spans roughly 30 sq. miles, while "SPOT" only spans 8 sq. feet. This precision is used in relation to geodetic lookups performed.
shc ctx.setloc test geo:46.9846,114.1213 "Bitterroot Creek" STM US shc ctx.setloc test "Missoula Creek" geo:46.9846,114.1213
Create Identity Context: ctx.setid
Create a binary context from the raw command-line argument specified.
Create Binary Context (raw): ctx.setbin
Create a binary context from the raw command-line argument specified.
Create Binary Context (file): ctx.setfile
Create a binary context from the absolute path specified.
Print Location Types: ctx.loctypes
Print out all suported location type codes for use with the "ctx.setloc" command.
[{ "name": "AREA", "desc": "General Area", "prec": 1 }, { "name": "MT", "desc": "Mountain", "prec": 1 }, .. }

Address Alias Commands

Alias Info: alias.info
Print the current fee to create an alias transaction and the total number of alias records in the system.
shc alias.info { "fee": 31.250000, "total": 1 }
Create Address Alias: alias.pubaddr
Create a persistent public association with a name and a coin address. Once confirmed, the coin address can be referenced as "@" in command-line operations.
When a coin address is specified the alias label will be published onto the block chain in reference. If the alias label already exists, then a transfer will occur providing you are the original owner.
A coin address will be automatically created if none is specified. Only "pub-key" coin addresses are currently supported. An alias will expire after 12 years.
An alias cost around 30 SHC to create and will decrease over time.
shc alias.pubaddr test S2fzfzf1SStvaMzjGpCtYKxY3t8PXus9Ci { .. "alias": { "version": 1, "label": "test", "expire": "Mar 21 09:37:40 2030", "type": 30, "addr": "S2fzfzf1SStvaMzjGpCtYKxY3t8PXus9Ci", "type-name": "pubkey" } }
shc wallet.send bank @test 2 d438fea502b7113f155617fc1b400161bb3045645094df5423ce7e484fadf7f2
List Address Alias: alias.list
Print all aliases that match the keyword provided.
shc alias.list { "test": { "block": "79b04f63fe5602f40bc559b1c5b39b730a2d6ea2d6b4ab491904d6054b1add71", "tx": "abb12ed2f4a74c58432afa9e19c08afad1d3dd84052f23be534e96ed53e11d4f", "alias": "77135966b271a06928cdff5548dbbaed61ee7250", "addr": "S2fzfzf1SStvaMzjGpCtYKxY3t8PXus9Ci" } }
Print Address Alias: alias.getaddr
Print details about a particular coin address alias given it's name.

Certificate Commands

Certificate Info: cert.info
Prints the current certificate transaction fee and the total number of certificates created on the block-chain.
shc cert.info { "fee": 14.750000, "total": 1 }
Certificate Info: cert.list
Search for a certificate given the provided keyword.
shc cert.list test { "test certificate": "8069f1bbfb435cfa1efdb454684446528343b809" }
Certificate Info: cert.new
The "cert.new" command is used to create a new certificate on the block-chain. The certificate than may be used to derive other certificates or dispense licences. The certificate may have an optional fee specified that will be required to derive or license it.
A certificate can either be designated for issueing other certificates or granting licenses, but not both. Either form of the certificate may be used in order to donate or send a certified coin transfer.
A certificate is signed against a private key that is generated from the associated extended account coin address. You may optionally specify a hexadecimal seed to use for generating the private key. The certificate's private key is not stored in a database or a transaction, and requires the original coin address to be present in the local wallet to be determined. The public key is provided as part of the certificate transaction, and can be used in order to verify the integrity of the associated signature.
The average fee for registering a new certificate is initially about 15 SHC and will decrease over time. The details of the certificate are visible in the underlying transaction that it was generated in.
The frame-work of the certificate is designed to be compatible with the x509 format. See the "shcert" share library utility program for more information on exporting x509 certificate created on the ShionCoin block-chain. Certificates may also be used to provide licensing authentication to run or provide features to programs using the share library "esig" functionality (see the "shesig_verify()" function).
Note that the certificate may contain identifying information such as the originating coin address and, when available, the geodetic location.
shc cert.new test "test certificate" { "version": 1, "flag": 17, "txid": "18d0a73c96af3dd211f27e4ada898e13b4cf25223da2591289edb8a1e86f1129", .. "certificate": { "version": 3, "label": "test certificate", "expire": "Mar 24 04:13:46 2066", "geo": "46.770000,113.980000", "addr": "SC2j6kxbrKzfpxsGqBQSrxeDh2CdPn1TLJ", "certhash": "8069f1bbfb435cfa1efdb454684446528343b809", "issuer": "0000000000000000000000000000000000000000", "serialno": "0c96a132d74df2522f38babf0733224c", "flags": 10244, "signature": "0d5a4e6c7d4975ee443cfc2e057d3d76070bd2f5", "sigpubkey": "0334d9f89253fa0837a1524266414509bdce478368" } }
Certificate Info: cert.get
Print the details of a certificate record given the certificate hash.
{ "version": 3, "label": "test certificate", "expire": "Mar 24 04:13:46 2066", "geo": "46.770000,113.980000", "addr": "SC2j6kxbrKzfpxsGqBQSrxeDh2CdPn1TLJ", "certhash": "8069f1bbfb435cfa1efdb454684446528343b809", "issuer": "0000000000000000000000000000000000000000", "serialno": "0c96a132d74df2522f38babf0733224c", "flags": 10244, "signature": "0d5a4e6c7d4975ee443cfc2e057d3d76070bd2f5", "sigpubkey": "0334d9f89253fa0837a1524266414509bdce478368", "txid": "18d0a73c96af3dd211f27e4ada898e13b4cf25223da2591289edb8a1e86f1129" }
Certificate Info: cert.derive
Derive a certificate from another certificate. You can optionally specify a fee to be associated with the new certificate, and a fee may be required if one is associated with the parent certificate.
Certificate Info: cert.license
Generate a license from a certificate. A license represents authorization to use a particular product and typically requires a fee to be paid. You can optionally specify a hexadecimal seed to be used when creating the certificate's private key.
Certificate Info: cert.export
Exports the private key information from the extended account that is used to claim ownership over a particular certificate.
Ownership and management of a certificate depends on having specific coin address key(s) in the coin wallet. Exporting a certificate provides JSON formatted content which can be used with "wallet.import" command to attain ownership of a certificate.

A tour of the Gridcoin wallet

Hey guys, I thought I would put together an in-depth tour of the Gridcoin wallet software for all of our recent newcomers. Here I'll be outlining all the features and functions the windows GUI wallet has to offer, along with some basic RPC command usage. I'll be using the windows wallet as an example, but both linux and macOS should be rather similar. I'll be including as many pictures as I can as embedded hyperlinks.
Edit: Note that since I originally made this there has been a UI update, so your client will be different colors but all the button locations are in the same place.
This is my first post like this, so please forgive me if this appears a little scatter-brained.
This will not cover the mining setup process for pool or solo miners.
When you launch the wallet software for the first time you should be greeted with this screen.

OVERVIEW TAB

After that prompt, you should be left sitting on the main overview tab with several fields on it.
From top to bottom:

SEND TAB

Now onto the other tabs on the left side. Currently we're on the Overview tab, lets move down to the Send tab. This tab it pretty self-explanatory, you use it if you want to send coins, but I'll go over the fields here:
  • Pay To: Enter a valid gridcoin address to send coins too. Gridcoin addresses always start with an S or and R.
  • Label: Enter a label here and it will put that address in your "address book" under that label for later use. You can leave it blank if you don't want it in your address book.
  • Message: Enter a message here if you want it attached to your transaction.
  • Amount: How many coins you want to send.
  • Add Attachment: Leave this alone, it is broken.
  • Track Coins: This doesn't do anything.

RECEIVE TAB

Now down to the Receive tab. Here you should have a single address listed. If you double click on the label field, you can edit it's label.
  • New: Generate a new address.
If you click on an address, the rest of the options should be clickable.
  • Copy: Copy the selected address to your clipboard.
  • Show QR Code: Show a scan-able QR code for the selected address.
  • Sign Message: Cryptographically sign a message using the selected address.

TRANSACTIONS TAB

The Transactions tab is pretty boring considering we have no transactions yet. But as you can see there are some sorting tools at the top for when you do have transactions listed.

ADDRESS BOOK TAB

The Address Book is where all the addresses you've labeled (that aren't yours) will show up.
  • Verify Message: Verifies a message was signed by the selected address.
The rest of the functions are similar to the functions on the Receive tab.

VOTING TAB

Onto the Voting tab. There wont be any polls because we aren't in sync yet.
  • Reload Polls: Pretty self-explanatory, I've never had to use this.
  • Load History: By default, the wallet will only display active polls. If you want to view past polls you can use this.
  • Create Poll: You can create a network-wide poll. You must have 100,000 coins as a requirement to make a poll. (Creating a poll does not consume the coins)
Here's what the Voting tab will look like once you're in sync

CONTEXT BAR

Now onto the context bar menus on the top.
Under File you have:
  • Backup Wallet/Config: This lets you backup your wallet configuration file just in case.
  • Export: You can export your Transactions tab or Address Book in CSV format.
  • Sign message: Does the same thing as on the Receive tab.
  • Verify message: Does the same thing as on the Address Book tab.
  • Exit: Close the wallet.
Under Settings you have:
  • Encrypt Wallet: Encrypts your wallet with a password. (we'll come back to this)
  • Change Passphrase: Allows you to change your encryption password.
  • Options: Opens the options menu. (We'll come back to this)
Under Community you have:
Under Advanced you have:
  • Advanced Configuration: Opens the Advanced Configuration menu. (Not so advanced if you ask me)
  • Neural Network: Allows you to view solo miners project statistics. It will be largely blank if you're not in sync yet.
  • FAQ: Don't touch this, It is broken.
  • Foundation: Don't touch this, It is broken.
  • Rebuild Block Chain: Starts the client syncing from 0. Don't worry, using this will not make you lose coins.
  • Download Blocks: Downloads the latest official snapshot, can help speed up syncing. The download progress tends to sit at 99.99% for a long time, don't worry, it's working.
Under Help you have:
  • Debug window: Opens the debug window. (We'll come back to this)
  • Diagnostics: Don't touch this, it is broken. This has since been fixed. You can use this to see if there is anything wrong with your setup.
  • About Gridcoin: Opens the About Dialog. This gives you your client version and other information.

OPTIONS

Now back to the options menu under Settings > Options.
Here we have the options menu main tab:
  • Pay transaction fee: The transaction fee that will be automatically paid when you make a transaction.
  • Reserve: You can reserve an amount so that it will always be available for spending.
  • Start Gridcoin on system login: Pretty self-explanatory
  • Detach databases at shutdown: Speeds up shutdown, but causes your blockchain file to no longer be portable.
On the Network tab:
  • Map port using UPnP: Attempts to connect to nodes through UPnP.
  • Connect through SOCKS proxy: Allows you to connect through a proxy.
The window tab is pretty self-explanatory.
The Display tab is also pretty self-explanatory, with the exception of:
  • Display coin control features (experts only!): This allows you to have a great deal of control over the coins in your wallet, check this for now and I'll explain how to use it further down. Don't forget to click "Apply".

ENCRYPTING YOUR WALLET

Now that all of that is out of the way. The first thing you'll want to do is encrypt your wallet. This prevents anybody with access to your computer from sending coins. This is something I would recommend everyone do.
Go to Settings > Encrypt Wallet and create a password. YOU CANNOT RECOVER YOUR COINS IF YOU FORGET YOUR PASSWORD.
Your wallet will close and you will have to start it up again. This time when it opens up, you should have a new button in the bottom left. Now if you want to stake you will have to unlock your wallet. Notice the "For staking only" box that is checked by default. If you want to send a beacon for solo mining or vote, you will need to uncheck this box.

GETTING IN SYNC AND ICONS

Before we continue, Let's wait until we're in sync. Depending on your internet speeds, this could take from several hours to over a day or 2. This can be sped up by using Advanced > Download Blocks, but this can still take several hours.
This is what an in-sync client should look like. Notice the green check to the right of the Receive tab. All of these icons give you information when you hover your mouse over them.
The lock
The arrow tells you if you're staking. If you aren't staking, it will tell you why you're not staking. If you are staking it will give you an estimated staking time. Staking is a very random process and this is only an estimate, not a countdown.
The connection bars tell you how many connections to the network you have.
The check tells you if you're in sync.

WHAT IS STAKING?

Now I've said "stake" about a million times so far and haven't explained it. Gridcoin is a Proof of Stake (PoS) coin.
Unlike bitcoins Proof of Work (PoW), PoS uses little system resources, so you can use those resources for scientific work. PoS works by users "Staking" with their balance. The higher the balance, the higher the chance to create, or "stake" a block. This means you need to have a positive balance in order to stake. Theoretically, you can stake with any amount over 0.0125 coins, but in practice it's recommended to have at least 2000 coins to reliably stake.
Staking is important for solo miners, because they get paid when they stake. Pool miners don't need to stake in order to get paid however. So if you want to solo mine, you'll need to buy some coins from an exchange or start in the pool first and move to solo when you have enough coins.
In addition to Research Rewards for miners, anyone who holds coins (solo miners, pool miners, and investors) gets 1.5% interest annually on top of your coins. So it can be beneficial for pool miners to stake as well.
Here is a snippet of what a research rewards transaction looks like from my personal wallet. I have a label on that address of "Payout address" as you can see here.

UTXOS AND COIN CONTROL

At this point you'll need some coins. You can use one of our faucets like this one or this one to test coin control out.
First let me explain what a UTXO is. UTXO stands for Unspent Transaction Output. Say you have an address with 0 coins in it, and someone sends you 10 coins like I've done here. Those 10 coins are added to that address in the form of a UTXO, so we have an address with one 10 coin UTXO in it.
Now we receive another 5 coins at the same address, like so. Now we have an address with one 10 coin UTXO and one 5 coin UTXO. But how do we view how our addresses are split up into different UTXOs?
Earlier we checked the "Display coin control features" box in Settings > Options > Display. Once that's checked you'll notice there's another section in the Send tab labeled "Coin Control Features". If you click the "Inputs" button, you'll get a new window. And look, there's our 2 UTXOs.
All UTXOs try to stake separately from each other, and remember that the chance a UTXO has to stake is proportional to it's size. So in this situation, my 10 coin UTXO has twice the chance to stake as my 5 coin UTXO. Now wallets, especially ones that make a lot of transactions, can get very fragmented over time. I've fragmented my wallet a little so I can show you what I'm talking about.
How do we clean this up? We can consolidate all this into one UTXO by checking all the boxes on the left and selecting OK.
Now pay attention to the fields on the top:
  • Quantity: The total amount of UTXOs we have selected.
  • Amount: The total amount of coins we have selected.
  • Fee: How much it would cost in fees to send all those UTXOs (more UTXOs = more transaction data = more fees)
  • After Fee: Amount - Fees.
  • Bytes: How large the transaction is in bytes.
  • Priority: How your client would prioritize making a transaction with this specific set of UTXOs selected had you not used coin control.
  • Low Output: If your transaction is less than 0.01 coins (I think).
  • Change: What you will get back in change.
  • custom change address: You can set the address you get your change back at, by default it will generate a new address.
So let's fill out our transaction so we end up with 1 UTXO at the end.
In "Pay To:" Just put any address in your wallet, and for the amount put what it has listed in the "After Fee" Field. Just like this.
Notice how we get no change back.
Now click "Send", we'll be prompted to enter our passphrase and we're asked if we want to pay the fee, go ahead and click "Yes".
Now if we go back to the Overview tab we get this funky icon. If you hover your mouse over it, it says "Payment to yourself", and the -0.0002 GRC is the network transaction fee.
(Ignore the first one, that was me fragmenting my wallet)
Now if we look at the Coin Control menu, we can see that we've slimmed our wallet down from 7 UTXOs to 1.
Now why would you want to use coin control?
2 Situations:
  1. UTXOs less than 0.0125 coins cannot stake. So you can combine a lot of tiny, useless UTXOs into 1 bigger one that can stake.
  2. After a UTXO stakes, it cannot stake for another 16 hours. So if you have 1 large UTXO that is big enough to stake more than once every 16 hours, you can split it into smaller UTXOs which can allow you to stake slightly more often.
  3. By default, the wallet will always generate a new address for change, which can make your wallet get very messy if you're sending lots of transactions. Keep in mind that more UTXOs = larger transactions = more fees.
Sidenote - When you stake, you will earn all research rewards owed reguardless of which UTXO staked. However, you'll earn the 1.5% interest for that UTXO. Not your whole wallet.

FORKING

A fork is when the network splits into multiple chains, with part of the network on each chain. A fork can happen when 2 blocks are staked by different clients at the same time or very close to the same time, or when your client rejects a block that should have been accepted due to a bug in the code or through some other unique circumstance.
How do I know if I'm on a fork?
Generally you can spot a fork by looking at the difficulty on your Overview tab. With current network conditions, if your difficulty is below 0.1, then you're probably on a fork.
You can confirm this by comparing your blockhash with someone elses, like a block explorer.
Go to [Help > Debug Window > Console]. This is the RPC console, we can use to do a lot of things. You can type help to get a list of commands, and you can type help [command you need help with] (without the brackets) to get information on a command. We'll be using the getblockhash [block number] command.
Type getblockhash [block number] in the console, but replace [block number] with the number listed next to the "Blocks:" field on the Overview tab.
This will spit out a crazy string of characters, this is the "blockhash" of that block.
Now head over to your favorite block explorer, I'll be using gridcoinstats. Find the block that you have the hash for, use the search bar or just find it in the list of blocks.
Now compare your hash with the one gridcoinstats gives you. Does it match?
If it matches, then you're probably good to go. If it matches but you still think you're on a fork, then you can try other block explorers, such as gridcoin.network or neuralminer.io.
If it doesn't match, then you need to try to get off that fork.
How do I get off a fork?
  1. Just wait for an hour or two. 95% of the time your client is able to recover itself from a fork given a little time.
  2. Restart the client, wait a few minutes to see if it fixes itself. If it doesn't restart again and wait. Repeat about 4 or 5 times.
  3. Find where the fork started. Using the getblockhash command, go back some blocks and compare hashes with that on a block explorer so you can narrow down what the last block you and the block explorer had in common. Then use reorganize [the last block hash you had in common]. Note that reorganize takes a blockhash, not a block number.
  4. Use Advanced > Download Blocks.
  5. If none of this works, you can take a look at social media (reddit/steemit) and see what other people are saying.

CONFIGURATION FILE

Your configuration file depends on your operation system:
  • On Windows: %appdata%\GridcoinResearch\
  • On Linux: ~/.GridcoinResearch/
  • On MacOS: /Users/USERNAME/Library/Application/Support/GridcoinResearch/
And it should look like this.
If you open up your gridcoinresearch.conf, you'll see the default one it generated. Note that if you entered your email earlier, the first line will have your email on it instead of "investor". If you decided you want to solo mine but didn't enter your email when you first started the wallet, go ahead and put your email on the first line in place of "investor". If you're a pool miner, just leave it as "investor".
Next, it's recommended that you use the addnodes on the gridcoin wiki. So our gridcoinresearch.conf will look like this.
A useful line for solo miners is PrimaryCPID=[YOUR CPID]. Sometimes your wallet can pick up on the wrong CPID so it's good to have that in there if you're solo mining.

RUNNING A LISTENING NODE

A listening node is a node that listens for blocks and transactions broadcasted from nodes and forwards them on to other nodes. For example, during the syncing process when you're getting your node running for the first time, you're downloading all the blocks from listening nodes. So running a listening node helps support the network.
Running a gridcoin listening node is simple. All you need to do is add listen=1 to your gridcoinresearch.conf and you need to forward port 32749 on your router.
If you don't know how to port forward, I'd suggest googling "How to port forward [your router manufacturer]".

(Updated) [Staking] Reddcoin Core client GUI wallet on a Raspberry Pi Model 3B

Intro

This thread is an update to my first Reddcoin staking tutorial that was written 7 months ago.
 
The reason for the update
My Reddcoin Core software crashed and became unusable. My Raspberry Pi 3B would lag and freeze, I couldn't stake anymore.
 
Instead of just redoing everything the same way, I wanted to see if I could improve on 3 points:
 
The updates
 
If you would like to tip me
Writing a tutorial like this takes time and effort; tips are appreciated. My Reddcoin address: RqvdnNX5MTam855Y2Vudv7yVgtXdcYaQAW.

This video shows how long it takes to start Reddcoin Core.   TL;DR:
     

Extra

Backup
Backup your wallet to prevent losing the RDDs in your wallet! There are two methods to backup, do both. Make new backups if you create a new receiving address!
 
 
   
Boot with only 1 USB drive plugged in:
Make sure only the USB drive (with the swap partition and data partition) is plugged in when you boot up your Raspberry Pi. This to make sure the swap partition (/dev/sda1) is recognized correctly.   If you boot up with multiple USB drives, Lubuntu might see the USB drive with the swap partition as the second drive (instead of the first drive), and ignore the 2 GB swap partition. If this happens, starting Reddcoin can render the Raspberry Pi unresponsive.
   
Connection issues If you have issues syncing the blockchain because you have 0 network connections, please follow the instructions in this thread.
   
Start Reddcoin Core easier
Run a shell script (.sh file), so you can start Reddcoin just by double clicking on an icon on your Desktop.
   
Minimization options
Adjust minimization options, so you can safely press on the X button (the close/exit button on the upper right corner).
   
RealVNC VNC Viewer (client) and VNC Connect (server): To remote connect to the Raspberry Pi, I use VNC Viewer ad VNC Connect from RealVNC.
 
   
Chromium as browser: The updates break Firefox, the browser crashes when you try to run it. Install another browser, Chromium, to solve this issue.
   
Updates / Upgrades
If Software Updater shows up and tells you that there is updated software available, do not install the updates using Software Updater. Use LXTerminal to update Lubuntu.

Zoin Basics: A Beginner’s Guide to Obtaining Zoin

Welcome to Zoin! We want to start by thanking you for joining our amazing community. Zoin is a community-governed decentralized digital currency with privacy features (based on the Zerocoin protocol) and is developed by a diverse team from all around the world. There is no pre-mine and no founder’s reward for Zoin; additionally, it is strictly CPU-minable (see mining section below). Together, these features ensure fairness and transparency to everyone interested in obtaining Zoin. Through this guide you will learn about the current methods of acquiring Zoin for yourself.

How to Earn / Buy Zoin

Right now, there are two ways you can obtain Zoin. You can either use the Bitcoin/Zoin trading pair on Cryptopia exchange or you can mine for Zoin using your own hardware.
 

Method 1: Trading Zoin on Cryptopia

To start, the easiest way to buy a cryptocurrency such as Ethereum or Litecoin is through Coinbase, where you can buy up to $500 worth of Litecoins (for example) using a credit card before you need to verify your identity. Coinbase accepts buyers from 33 countries across the world. A simple guide from Coinbase on buying Litecoin (or Ethereum) with your bank account / credit card is all you need to get started.
Once you have purchased either Litecoin or Ethereum (or another altcoin) you may login to Cryptopia exchange, after you’ve created an account. You must create a deposit address for the same coin that you previously bought on Coinbase or another exchange by clicking deposit under your account, and then typing the name of the coin you wish to deposit. This will generate an address for your Cryptopia trading wallet to receive coins. You can either copy / paste the address (never type it yourself without verifying it), or scan the QR code if you are sending from a mobile wallet.
Once you make a deposit to your Cryptopia wallet address you must wait for several confirmations before your funds are trade-able on Cryptopia. This usually takes around 30 minutes.
When the deposit is confirmed you may go to the Exchange Market section of Cryptopia and search for the coin you just deposited. Once you are there, create a sell order and wait for someone to buy it, or choose a buy order for the coin to trade it for Bitcoin right away. Since you just purchased your cryptocurrency, the price probably won’t be very different than when you bought it, but this depends heavily on the current state of the market. Look up how much the current buy orders are (in your country’s currency), if it is close to the price you bought it at then you can sell at that price. Remember, a sell order may not be filled right away, but choosing someone’s buy order will sell it to them instantly.
If you have successfully traded your altcoin for Bitcoin on Cryptopia, you may now use your Bitcoin to buy Zoin. You can buy Zoin through a buy order of your own (bid) or a sell order from someone else; again, this is entirely up to you and how you anticipate the market / price of coins.
Congratulations, you have successfully bought your first Zoin!
The next step is to transfer the Zoin you bought to your own personal Zoin wallet. To do this, download the wallet on your preferred platform and after installing and running the wallet for the first time, wait for the blockchain to fully sync.
 
  1. Close your wallet (if it’s open).
  2. Delete the following folders from %appdata% on Windows or Library/Application Support/Zoin on Mac: Blocks, Chainstate and the file peers.dat
  3. Download the latest blockchain file, extract using 7Zip or your preferred program.
  4. Paste the newly downloaded folders: Block, Chainstate and file peers.dat in ZOIN folder under %appdata% on Windows or Library/Application Support/Zoin on Mac
  5. Open the wallet and wait for it to synchronize. This should take less time than downloading the entire blockchain and syncing from scratch. The process should take around 30 minutes.
Go to the Receive tab and click on your address, then choose Copy Address. Paste that address on the Cryptopia withdraw page for Zoin and confirm that you want to withdraw. In a few minutes, your Zoin will show up in your wallet (it will be confirmed after 6 confirmations).
 
After your wallet is up to date and you’ve added some of your coins to it, you will want to make it safe in case something happens.
The first thing you want to do is to encrypt it. You can do this by clicking on Settings Encrypt Wallet
You should type in a passphrase that is safe and that you will remember, confirm this passphrase and proceed to encrypt your wallet.
Please be advised, once you set your passphrase you can’t forget it or all your funds will be lost!
Right after your wallet has been encrypted, you should make a backup of it. Click on File Backup Wallet and save the wallet as a wallet.dat file
If you want to open your wallet on another computer you may save the wallet file onto a flash drive or other backup device / method you may already have. Remember that if you encrypted your wallet before doing this backup you must know the passphrase in order to access your wallet.
 
Another way of recovering your wallet is by finding the private key for the wallet. This can be done in the wallet debug terminal (advanced). For accessing your wallet private key, you must do the following procedure:
If your wallet is encrypted: Click Help Debug Window Console (tab). In the console window, use the command walletpassphrase first:
walletpassphrase "YourPassphrase" 60 
Where "YourPassphrase" is the passphrase you used when you encrypted your wallet and 60 is the amount of time you want to unencrypt your wallet for (in seconds).
Next, use the dumpprivkey command in the following form:
dumpprivkey "wallet address" 
Replace "wallet address" with your own wallet address.
After entering these commands, you will receive your private key.
You may now write down and save this private key.
 

Method 2: Mining Zoin

The second way of obtaining Zoin is to earn it by mining, using your own hardware and a mining pool server (we recommend the official pool). Mining Zoin is possible with any modern computer as long as it has a CPU.
To start mining you need to have an account in a “pool”; this is a place where several computers (also known as workers) connect together to mine the blockchain. As we mine the blockchain, we find blocks which contain a reward (currently 12.5 Zoin) which is shared by the number of total miners depending on each person’s mining hashrate. The better your hardware is, the more Zoin you will receive from mining.
To get started, visit our official pool and create your mining account.
You will need to set up a worker. This is your mining device which should be assigned a name and password in order for the network to distinguish your mining rig from others. To do this, visit the Workers page.
The Username must be set for as many workers or computers you want to set up. For example, if the username you chose when signing up to our pool was “john123” and you set your first computer name to worker1. Then your username and worker will be: “john123.worker1”. If you set a second worker as worker2, your second worker name will be “john123.worker2” and so on. The password will be whatever you choose under the password that box, the password can be the same for all the workers.
 
Mining on Windows:
Now that your workers are set, you can go ahead and download mining software, which you can get from the Resources page of the official pool.
Once you have the mining software, open the compressed folder by extracting its contents and create a batch (.bat) file which will contain all the info necessary to mine Zoin into your account. To do this, open a text editor such as Notepad and save the file as .bat instead of .txt
 
This batch file must contain just one line:
cpuminer-aes-avx2.exe -a lyra2zoin -o stratum+tcp://zoin.netabuse.net:3000 -u username.workername -p workerpassword 
 
cpuminer-aes-avx2.exe is the .exe file that you want to use, it depends on your CPU.
Lyra2zoin is the algorithm used by Zoin, that should remain the same.
stratum+tcp://zoin.netabuse.net:3000 is the link to the official pool.
username.workername should be the username you set. (Example: john123.worker1)
workerpassword is the password you set for each worker.
Once you set this batch file, you can run it by double-clicking on it.
 
Note: Make sure that your Firewall / AV program isn’t blocking cpuminer-aes-avx2.exe or the .bat file in order for it to run successfully.
 
Mining on Linux (Advanced):
Type the following into the terminal one line at a time:
 
sudo chown -R $USER: $HOME 
 
sudo apt-get update 
 
sudo apt-get install automake autoconf pkg-config libcurl4-openssl-dev libjansson-dev libssl-dev libgmp-dev -y 
 
sudo apt-get install autotools-dev automake make libcurl4-openssl-dev g++ libssl-dev libgmp3-dev -y 
 
sudo apt-get install build-essential screen automake m4 openssl libssl-dev git libjson0 libjson0-dev libcurl4- openssl-dev autoconf python-software-properties -y 
 
sudo git clone https://github.com/JayDDee/cpuminer-opt 
 
cd cpuminer-opt 
 
./build.sh 
 
./cpuminer -a lyra2zoin -o stratum+tcp://zoin.netabuse.net:3000 -u USERNAME.WORKERNAME -p x -t x 
Replace USERNAME.WORKERNAME with your unique pool username and workername
 
Mining on Mac OS:
  1. Download and install Docker Community Edition
  2. Visit the Zoin Official Pool and create your mining account
  3. Setup a Worker
  4. Edit the line below to match your pool configuration:
 
docker run hmage/cpuminer-opt -a lyra2zoin -o stratum+tcp://zoin.netabuse.net:3000 -u USERNAME.WORKERNAME -p x 
 
hmage/cpuminer-opt is the miner that will be used by docker.
Lyra2zoin is the algorithm used by Zoin, that should remain the same.
stratum+tcp://zoin.netabuse.net:3000 is the link to the official pool.
USERNAME.WORKERNAME should be your unique username and workname (Example: john123.worker1)
If Docker up and running, open Terminal on your Mac (Command + Spacebar and type "Terminal") and paste the line you created. Docker will proceed to download the necessary programs and start mining right away. If you can see the Accepted green message you are mining and you can check all of the mining stats and your earnings from the pool on the main page.
Happy mining!

SOLO Mining setup instructions. CCminer Nevermore and QT / CLI wallet.

First, I do not solo mine myself, so I can not confirm if this setup pays. I do not have the hash to even consider trying. I can confirm ccminer gets work from the wallet and cards get hot. Enjoy!
 
EDIT: Setup tested on coin with lower difficulty. I got paid.
 
 
 
rpcuser=user rpcpassword=pass rpcbind=192.168.1.100:8766 rpcallowip=192.168.1.1/24 server=1 
 
Replace user, pass and ips to match your setup. You can make up your own usepass. You need to use the same ones when configuring ccminer. 192.168.1.100 needs to be changed to the IP of the machine running the wallet. This setup allows connections from all ips in the range 192.168.1.X
 
 
:mine ccminer.exe -a x16r -o http://192.168.1.100:8766 -u user -p pass -i 21 --no-longpoll --no-getwork --no-stratum --coinbase-addr=YOUR_RVN_ADDRESS_HERE ping -n 30 127.0.0.1 goto :mine 
 
Replace user, pass and IP to match your setup. The IP is to the machine running the wallet and the usepass are the ones you set in the first config file. And don't forget to add your RVN-address.
 
 
If you found this useful any donation would be welcome RVN: RFmtFb9GdZHvbvBW5hYB3s9VezJxeSfnz3  
   
 
#!/bin/bash until /path/to/ccminer -a x16r -o http://192.168.1.100:8766 -u user -p pass -i 21 --no-longpoll --no-getwork --no-stratum --coinbase-addr=YOUR_RVN_ADDRESS_HERE; do ping -c 30 127.0.0.1 done 
 
Replace user, pass and IP to match your setup. The IP is to the machine running the wallet and the usepass are the ones you set in the first config file. And don't forget to add your RVN-address.

Getting Started with Evolution https://wiki.biblepay.org/Getting_Started_with_Evolution
Generic Smart Contracts https://wiki.biblepay.org/Generic_Smart_Contracts
What is BiblePay Evolution? https://www.reddit.com/BiblePay/comments/bifvpk/biblepay_evolution_what_is_it/
Windows Guide: 1. Download 32 or 64 bit .exe from https://www.biblepay.org/wallet/ 2. Double Click / Run .exe file and step through Install process 3. Run BiblePay 4. Click Tools >> One Click Mining, (Or set up mining manually with steps a through d below)
     a. Open File Explorer, in address bar type: %appdata%      b. Press Enter      c. Go to BiblepayEvolution folder      d. Open biblepay.conf file for editing, add lines and Save
addnode=node.biblepay.org gen=1 genproclimit=1 
NOTE: addnode is used to give the wallet a starting node to connect to and sync with gen=1 turns on mining by default when the wallet is opened genproclimit=1 sets number of mining threads to 1 by default

5. Close BiblePay and Run it again 6. In BiblePay, go to Tools menu, Click Debug Console 7. Type these commands into the debug console:
getinfo getmininginfo help 
NOTE: getinfo will show you what block number your wallet is currently on and the version number getmininginfo will show you how many threads are running and how much mining hash you have help will show you all the other commands you can use

Threads: 8. To change number of threads to use up for mining
a. Edit %appdata%/BiblepayEvolution/biblepay.conf file: Find with File Explorer or inside the wallet go to Menu >> Tools >> Open Wallet Configuration File
genproclimit=X 
and restart BiblePay -or- b. Menu >> Tools >> Debug Console >> Type command:
setgenerate true X 
(Replace X with the number of threads you want to use Open Task Manager to view CPU usage)

Using the Pool:
NOTE: To use the pool you must now use the external miner, not the wallet miner https://whitewalr.us/2019/biblepay-nomp-pool-mining.html
  1. Set up an account on pool website: https://pool.biblepay.org/
  2. Create Worker Username(s) - Workers tab >>> Add (NOTE: Your Worker Username needs to be unique)
  3. Enable pool and add Worker Username in %appdata%/BiblepayEvolution/biblepay.conf file, add these lines:
    pool=https://pool.biblepay.org workerid=insertWorkerUsernameHere
4. Restart BiblePay
How to Withdraw Coins From Pool? The pool holds onto your coins, go to "Account" >> "Withdraw" to withdraw your coins In your BiblePay Wallet go to "File" >> "Receiving Address" and you can right click and copy the address and paste it into the Pool's Withdraw screen as the "Destination Address", then click the "Withdraw" button and the coins will be sent from the Pool to your Wallet
Setup Auto-Withdraw Navigate to Account >>> Account Settings >>> Verify your BBP Receiving Address >>> Click Authorize-Auto-Withdraws
Why use a Pool? As the network hash rises (as more miners are mining), it can take longer and longer to solve a block, by using the pool, everyone works together with all of their hash power to solve blocks, and the reward gets split between everyone who contributed based on how much they contributed in hash.
With solo mining (not using the pool) it may take 1 month to finally solve a block and get large BBP reward, with pool you can get small frequent BBP rewards every ~30 minutes. (BBP meaning BiblePay coins)

How to Update: Download exe from biblepay.org and install again, your wallet will stay intact

Backup:
Your wallet.dat stores your private keys that contain the access to your coins, this file is backed up every 24 hours in the backups folder, We also recommend that you save a copy of this file in other places, like a flash drive
Learn More about Backing Up your Wallet.dat https://www.reddit.com/BiblePay/comments/7lksp4/backup_walletdat/

FAQ
QUESTION: How long does it take for coins to mature? If you're solo mining, the coins become mature after ~100 blocks. If you're using the pool, they become mature after 24 hours
QUESTION: How do I know if I am currently mining? In your wallet >> In Top left Menu select "Tools" >> Click "Debug Console" Type in the command: getgenerate If it returns true, mining is turned on command: getmininginfo Will show how much "hashps" (hashing) your pc is doing, "genproclimit" will show how many mining threads you are using "poolmining" will be show value of true if you are successfully mining on the pool

How to Buy or Sell BBP coins?
You can buy and sell BBP coins for Bitcoin on the Exchanges we are listed on: SouthXChange: https://www.southxchange.com/Market/Book/BBP/BTC CoinExchange.io: https://www.coinexchange.io/market/BBP/BTC

Hello /r/BTC, I'm trying out a new decentralized fundraising system and I'm a fully supportive of the Bitcoin Cash movement.

Hello /BTC. My name is Jkid, (Long-term unemployed) Linux Systems Adminsitrator and IT professional, Twitch Streamer, political an socio-economic researcher and analyst, and more recently moderator of /lostgeneration. I've been struggling to support my unemployed parents for four years as a sole income provider, and ended up sacrificing my remaining 20s and social, economic, and life milestones and it finally came to a head a few days ago when I saw a article about elderly couple who tried seeking help for month ended up deciding to end it. It brought up so much emotions because despite all my best efforts to help my own parents this may happen to them eventually, forced to live in the street or worse.
However, someone named oshisat who was a long-time /lostgeneration user invited me to try out a decentralized fundraiser system called bitfund.cash, a decentralized Bitcoin Cash Fundraising project created by akari_bit Basically it allows anyone to raise funds via Bitcoin Cash, without the need to log into an account. The process for me took an hour, but I already have a account with github. With trial and error and prior knowledge of basic html coming back to me from my Linux SysAdmin years I was able to set up the page.
Already I can see the advantages of Bitcoin, particularly Bitcoin Cash. Primarily it brings the potential of bringing cash to a portions of society that can't use banks particularly lower working class people.
And anyone with a cell phone, computer, and with a few basic safety precautions can use Bitcoin cash. A person can send money via Bitcoin cash address and the person holding the actual wallet can receive the money almost instantly, and with ATMs available in a growing amount of major cites, anyone can withdraw money without ATM fees.
As a left libertarian I want to support this however I can. That's why I want to post this fundraiser to help me and my family from being in the streets and for me getting a fresh start in life.
My fundraiser is located at https://ndokeh.github.io/helpJkid/
Already I've set up these initial goals to this end. These are in US Dollar equvilents as Bitcoin Cash amounts change by the minute or by the day. The '+' means the amount raised reaches another dollar amount above the initial $20 goal. I will add these goals within 24 hours onto my github page as they are fulfilled or not.
$20: ID renewal, as you need a ID to get anything done and mine's has expired last month. GOAL MET!
$120+: Passport Renewal. My US Passport was expired two years ago, and I did not realize it until I found it in their basement of stuff at my relatives.GOAL MET!
$150+: I will start work on a personal webpage hosted by github. Initially basic but will include my writings, my resume, my photography and videography portfolio from my time at the University of Maryland to Anime conventions and street photography and political events and vigils, technology manuals and tutorials. Basically everything I know.
NEXT GOAL:$200+ (Up to $1200+ for a year): Allows me to rent a storage room from Uhaul to move all of my stuff that has been in my relatives basement for 8 years. Many of my stuff are of sentimental value to me because it represents the life that I wanted to have before my parents lost their jobs in 2014. Books, manga, video games, costumes, posters, video game consoles, electronics, clothes, comics. They're telling me that they want to fix the basement ASAP. In the event I can only rent a small room in a house or an apartment, I would not worry about my stuff being thrown away.
Certifications: A+ $250+ Linux+: $450+ Cloud+: $350+
With everyone having a Bachelors degree, the only way to stand out from the crowd is to have a IT certification. I had plans to get certifications after I moved out from my parents until it got derailed. The price include the cost of taking the exam and the book that allows the person to study for it. The Linux exam costs over 400 dollars because there are two exams that you have to take to get the Linux+ certification.
$300+: Pay off Best buy credit card, that I have been paying the minimum off for YEARS and it never went down.
$1000+ (up to $12000 for a year): Allows me to rent a room and pay ultities in the DC, MD, and VA area. If I can get a small room of my own, it will allow me to study, work on small jobs, play video games to stream publicly.
$1500+: I will be able to pay off my Perkins loan completely. I had plans to pay off my Perkins loan within 6 months of moving out of my parents. Now it had gotten close to becoming defaulted.
$2000+ (up to $12000 for 6 months): Allows my parents to stay in the house while they find people to rent out rooms without fear of being homeless or have power, gas, or water cut off.
$2100+: Allows me to use professional movers to move my stuff from my parents and relatives to my new home.
$2500+ (up to $30,000 for a whole year): Allows me to rent a one bedroom apartment and pay ultilites and cable/internet.
$3,000+ (up to 15,000): Will allow me to pay off one credit card that I'm totally behind in since I was laid off on October 2017.
$4,000+: Will allow me to pay the past due rent on the apartment we were forced to move out of because we could not afford it, despite paying the rent on time and giving proper notice.
$5,000+: Will allow me to set up a Gaming/Tech Studio with all the works: Including three Ultrawidescreen PC monitors, a Streaming PC, a Gaming/General Use PC, and a Linux Server for Podcast Production/Video Gaming Streaming/Movie production, plus a stream deck. Along with a comfortable chair due to my scorliosis.
$20,000+ I will start doing a weekly political and socio-economic commentary/research/analysis writing series: At least one commentary per week, with at least one of them related to bitcoin bitcoin cash and real economy (read, on the street) developments.
$25,000+ This will allow me to pay off my entire Federal Direct Student Loan that has been lingering for years since graduation.
$15,000+ I will start doing photography and videotography projects and allows me to travel the united states to this end and also allows me to attend and document anime/fan conventions. $15,000+ I will begin streaming sessions on twitch.tv, and fan commentary and analysis of anime, manga, video games, and otaku culture under the brand name "The Ministry of Otaku"
$15,000+ I will be able to write a non-fiction book in politics or in any other subject. Probably one about the media, internet culture, or socio-economics.
$15,000+ Allows me to travel to any one country in the world for a much needed vacation away from the slow decent of craziness and politically polarization of America: Canada, Taiwan, Britian, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Hong Kong.
One more thing: 3% of the proceeds in Bitcoin Cash in this fundraiser, will be used in some kind of way to support the movement.
If you have any doubts of my need, I will send you a folder or evidence of my proof of need ,including a letter of reference, via PM.
Thanks for your appreciation in advance. --Jkid

Mining Reward- 20 coins per block (Halving at 210000 Blocks)
Retarget Difficulty- 2016 Blocks
Infrastructure- Lite version of Bitcoin
Premine- 5% (To cover server fees, bounties, and unforeseen expenses)
F.A.Q.
Who are we and why are we doing this?
We are a duo (I'm Andrew, Community Manager and she is Priya, Programmer) and I friggen love DF (She doesn't play anything other than Minecraft and Stardew Valley). Since Priya is having trouble finding work in programming and I'm doing nothing but playing DF and trading Crypto, I came up with the idea of mixing all these things together. And so, Dorfcoin was made!
Our plan. Like any good fortress, we set out a basic blueprint of where to take this cryptocurrency.
  1. Build wallet and miner for Linux- Completed!
  2. Create wallet for Windows- Completed!
  3. Create a miner for Windows- Completed!
  4. Create a wallet and miner for Android
  5. Have our coin listed on a Trade Depot (Exchange)
  6. Offer real products in exchange for Dorfcoin (Silver and Copper Ingots to start)
  7. Officially support a GPU miner for Linux/Windows/Mac- Windows Completed!
  8. Create a wallet and miner for iOS
  9. Create a casino minigame for Dorfcoin (on Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS)
  10. Rebuild wallet with built in CPU and GPU Solo/Pool mining with user friendliness in mind for Linux, Windows, and Mac
How can I make money off this?
By mining! No longer must you send Dorf miners to certain death to accumulate wealth. Simply download a Linux Wallet from here or a Windows Wallet from here.
For solo CPU Mining-
In your wallet, go to Help -> Debug Window -> Console and type in setgenerate true -(# of threads you want your processor to use). It should look like this, without the quotations; "setgenerate true -3" for 3 threads. Give it about 30 minutes to sync with our network and you'll begin mining!
For solo GPU Mining-
Download this package and follow the readme.
You may want to encrypt your wallet for safety, but be sure to write down the password should you do so- WE HAVE NO WAY OF RECOVERING YOUR PASSWORD IF YOU LOSE IT. There have been horror stories of bitcoin millionaires who can't access their fortune because they lost their wallet's password. You don't want to become one of these people.
Pool mining-
Throw this onto the config file of any stratum pool miner-
-o stratum+tcp://miningpool.thruhere.net:5516 -u Your wallet address here -p x
What makes us different?
We want to make cryptocurrency more accessible. And not just by adoption, but in mining as well. This is why we will make an app to mine Dorfcoin, though it cannot compete with a dedicated rig, pool mining with your phone will get people directly involved with Dorfcoin.
What are your thoughts on elves?
They're wusses. What do you mean they won't trade with me anymore? That wooden sculpture came from dead wood off my starting wagon- I didn't even murder any trees! (Yet).
More will be added as questions come up.

Groestlcoin Release September 2018

Introduction

As always, the past 3 months since 22nd June have been crazy busy. The bears might still be around, but the show must go on and of course has not slowed the Groestlcoin development team in the slightest. Here’s a quick overview of what has already happened since the last release: - Integrated into the bitbns exchange, with the ability to buy Groestlcoin directly with the Indian Rupee. - Groestlcoin Rebrand Vote – Whilst there was much talk and push for a rebrand vote, the overall result was almost unanimously in favour of keeping our unique and conversation-starting name. With just 83 votes to Rebrand, and 2577 votes to No Rebrand. Thank you for all who voted, the funds raised are being used to fund ongoing hosting and development costs. - Integrated into the Cryptobridge exchange. Cryptobridge is a popular decentralised exchange where you always hold the private keys to your funds, only YOU have access to them. - Groestlcoin has been added to SimpleSwap – Groestlcoin can now be swapped with over 100 other cryptocurrencies, without signing up! - Groestlcoin has been added to UnoDax, one of the leading cryptocurrency exchanges in India, with TUSD, BTC and INR trading pairs. - Groestlcoin has been added to SwapLab.cc, where you can buy Groestlcoin using Bitcoin and over 50 other altcoins. Purchasing with VISA/Mastercard is coming VERY SOON. Discussed later: - Groestlcoin has been listed on #3 largest exchange in the world on volume, Huobi Global! More on this to come further on in the announcements. - Groestlcoin has been added to the Guarda Multi-Currency Wallet. - Groestlcoin has been added to Melis Multi-Device, Multi-Account, Multi-Platform, Multi-Signature advanced wallet! Already this list is far more than most other cryptocurrencies have achieved in the past 3 months. But this is just the tip of the iceberg of what has been developed.

What's been Happening?

GRSPay Released

We are so excited for this, that it has it's own separate reddit thread. Head over there now at https://www.reddit.com/groestlcoin/comments/9ikr5m/groestlcoin_releases_grspay/? to see more on this!
https://www.melis.io/assets/logo-navbar-4b6f0d372f15b2446d3fa4c68f346e4fb08ee113941186cee58fd6135f3f8b7d.svg

Melis Wallet

The the most advanced wallet for Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin and now Groestlcoin.
With Melis you have the complete control of your bitcoins and private keys, you can define spending limits policies and make use of two or more factors authentication. Melis is open source, published on GitHub.

How Melis Works?

You can create as many accounts as you want. An account is a part of your wallet that can be customised to your requirements. You can choose how many co-signers are required to spend funds. The accounts are completely independent and act like separate wallets from each other but can be accessed via the same details. A core feature of Melis is the ability to set a ‘primary’ device. With this you can set an account as ‘Secure’ so it is only viewable (and accessible at all) from the Primary device. You can have a savings account hidden from the outside world whilst also having your ‘spending’ funds available on the go. With Melis you can create a multi-signature account between N people, where up to N signatures are required to sign a transaction, choosing if any of those should be mandatory.

Integrated into Blockchain Financial

What is Blockchain Financial?

Blockchain Financial is a set of web based services for individuals and companies that want to make things happen with the Cryptocurrencies Ecosystem. - For those that don't know anything about cryptocurrencies, we offer tools that will let them receive, send and operate with an assortment of coins. - For those that are already riding the wave, we offer tools that will let them do all those things that they weren't able to do.

Blockchain Financials mission

We're not here to reinvent the wheel. We're here to make it run smoother for you, and we provide some of the most useful services you'll find on the internet, made in a way that is easy to understand and use on a daily basis. In short, we're a bunch of people that claim to be Crypto Evangelists. We strongly believe in cryptocurrencies, and our main promise is to push them up so more people get involved and take all the advantages they offer.

More information from Blockchain Financial

Back in 2014, the world was taken by storm when Facebook approved the first cryptocurrencies tipping apps. The first was for Dogecoin, and the second was for multiple coins.
The project was hosted on whitepuma.net, and persisted for almost two years, built up a massive user community and gave a home to Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin and dozens of other bitcoin-based altcoins.
After very active months, the tipping hype started to fade away. Then, the developers decided to jump into the next stage: bringing not only tipping, but also mining and a widget that could be embedded on websites to allow everyone to accept payments. Sadly, the work was never completed because the project started to require an unsustainable amount of resources. Then, in a painful decision, a shutdown was announced by December 2015.
A couple of months after whitepuma.net was closed, the source code was released by its creator as Open Source on GitHub. But it wasn't maintained.
Now, some of the original members of the dev and admin teams gathered up with a handful of the WhitePuma's elite users, and decided to make something good with the best pieces of the old source code. That, with fresh new ideas and the power of the BardCanvas engine, synthesized the core of Blockchain Financial.

Groestlcoin Core v2.16.3 - Please Update ASAP

A new major Groestlcoin Core version 2.16.3 is now available for download which includes both a Denial of Service component and a critical inflation vulnerability, so it is recommended to upgrade to it if you are running a full Groestlcoin node or a local Groestlcoin Core wallet.
v2.16.3 is now the official release version of Groestlcoin Core. This is a new major version release with a very important security updates. It is recommended to upgrade to this version as soon as possible. Please stop running versions of Groestlcoin Core affected by CVE-2018-17144 ASAP: These are 2.13.3 and 2.16.0.
As a result in this, all exchanges and services have been asked to upgrade to this version, so please be patient if wallets go in to maintenance mode on these services.

What's new in version v2.16.3?

This is a major release of Groestlcoin Core fixing a Denial of Service component and a critical inflation vulnerability (https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2018-17144) exploitable by miners that has been discovered in Groestlcoin Core version 2.13.3 and 2.16.0. It is recommended to upgrade to 2.16.3 as soon as possible. If you only occasionally run Groestlcoin Core, then it's not necessary to run out and upgrade it right this second. However, you should upgrade it before you next run it. If you know anyone who is running an older version, tell them to upgrade it ASAP. Stored funds are not at risk, and never were at risk. At this time we believe over half of the Groestlcoin hashrate has upgraded to patched nodes. We are unaware of any attempts to exploit this vulnerability. However, it still remains critical that affected users upgrade and apply the latest patches to ensure no possibility of large reorganizations, mining of invalid blocks, or acceptance of invalid transactions occurs.

The Technicals

In Groestlcoin Core 2.13.3, an optimization was added (Bitcoin Core PR #9049) which avoided a costly check during initial pre-relay block validation that multiple inputs within a single transaction did not spend the same input twice which was added in 2012 (Bitcoin Core PR #443). While the UTXO-updating logic has sufficient knowledge to check that such a condition is not violated in 2.13.3 it only did so in a sanity check assertion and not with full error handling (it did, however, fully handle this case twice in prior to 2.1.0.6). Thus, in Groestlcoin Core 2.13.3, any attempts to double-spend a transaction output within a single transaction inside of a block will result in an assertion failure and a crash, as was originally reported. In Groestlcoin Core 2.16.0, as a part of a larger redesign to simplify unspent transaction output tracking and correct a resource exhaustion attack the assertion was changed subtly. Instead of asserting that the output being marked spent was previously unspent, it only asserts that it exists. Thus, in Groestlcoin Core 2.16.0, any attempts to double-spend a transaction output within a single transaction inside of a block where the output being spent was created in the same block, the same assertion failure will occur. However, if the output being double-spent was created in a previous block, an entry will still remain in the CCoin map with the DIRTY flag set and having been marked as spent, resulting in no such assertion. This could allow a miner to inflate the supply of Groestlcoin as they would be then able to claim the value being spent twice.
Groestlcoin would like to publicly thank Reddit user u/Awemany for finding CVE-2018-17144 and reporting it (https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipermail/bitcoin-core-dev/2018-Septembe000064.html). You deserve gratitude and appreciation from cryptoworld, and you have ours.

Groestlcoin EasyVanity Released

Groestlcoin EasyVanity is a Windows app is built from the ground-up in C# and makes it easier than ever before to create your very own bespoke Groestlcoin address(es), even whilst not connected to the internet! You can even generate multiple keys with the same prefix and leave it on overnight whilst your CPU or GPU collects and stores these addresses locally.
If you're tired of the random, cryptic addresses generated by regular groestlcoin clients, then Groestlcoin EasyVanity is the right choice for you to create a more personalized address.

Features

• Ability to continue finding keys after first one is found • Includes warning on startup if connected to the internet • Ability to output keys to a text file (And shows button to open that directory) • Ability to make your match case sensitive (Where possible) • Show and hide the private key with a simple toggle switch, and copy the private key straight to your clipboard • Show full output of commands • Includes statistics whilst the application is running • Ability to choose between Processor (CPU) and Graphics Card (GPU) • Automatically detects 32 or 64 bit systems • Features both a Light and Dark Material Design inspired Themes • EasyVanity's search is probabilistic, and the amount of time required to find a given pattern depends on how complex the pattern is, the speed of your computer, and whether you get lucky. • EasyVanity includes components to perform address searching on your CPU (vanitygen) and your OpenCL-compatible GPU (oclvanitygen). Both can be built from source, and both are included in the Windows binary package. • Prefixes are exact strings that must appear at the beginning of the address. When searching for prefixes, Easyvanity will ensure that the prefix is possible, and will provide a difficulty estimate. • The percentage displayed just shows how probable it is that a match would be found in the session so far. If it finds your address with 5% on the display, you are extremely lucky. If it finds your address with 92% on the display, you are unlucky. If you stop EasyVanity with 90% on the display, restart it, and it finds your address with 2% on the display, your first session was unlucky, but your second session was lucky. • EasyVanity uses the OpenSSL random number generator. This is the same RNG used by groestlcoin and a good number of HTTPS servers. It is regarded as well-scrutinized. Guessing the private key of an address found by EasyVanity will be no easier than guessing a private key created by groestlcoin itself. • To speed up address generation, EasyVanity uses the RNG to choose a private key, and literally increments the private key in a loop searching for a match. As long as the starting point is not disclosed, if a match is found, the private key will not be any easier to guess than if every private key tested were taken from the RNG. EasyVanity will also reload the private key from the RNG after 10,000,000 unsuccessful searches (100M for oclvanitygen), or when a match is found and multiple patterns are being searched for. • Free software - MIT. Anyone can audit the code. • Written in C# - The code is short, and easy to review.
