I just rolled out version 0.3.24.60 of namecoind. This means production MasterPool is now running the merged mining version and is ready to go. Merged Mining will start in less than 400 blocks (block 19,200). At the current rate Merged Mining will be available at about mid October. To view the current block number have a look at: http://explorer.dot-bit.org/

You should consider updating your namecoind as well ASAP. I guess binaries will be available very soon.

Thank you. Nice to hear that.

Could you do me a favor and measure the latency to the ingress servers from Beijing by issuing the following on the command line:

Code: Select all

ping eu01.masterpool.eu
ping us01.masterpool.eu
I'm interested in the miliseconds (ms) values.

Furthermore I'm really interested in hearing about how namecoins in particular and cryptocurrencies in general are seen as a threat or as an enrichment by the chinese government. Is the governement even aware of cryptocurrencies? It would be great to read such information from first hand.

Woah, thank you for your effort! Stupid me... I didn't allow ping to US ingress server. Would you mind to check again. ping checks now should work. Seems we need a german sub forum :mrgreen:

I was asked recently if the JSON API will support BTC as soon as it is available and how it will look like... :shock: Honestly, I forgot about the JSON API while implementing merged mining.

But I catched up on this. please find the new JSON API supporting several blockchains here: https://www.masterpool.eu/jsonstats with explanations about it here: https://www.masterpool.eu/faq

The old URL (/api) is still available for compatibility. But it will be silently dropped probably at the end of the year. Thus please make sure to switch to the new URL.

Here is a (formatted) sample of the new JSON data:

Code: Select all

{
   "workers":16,
   "hashrate":"2.80",
   "blockchains":{
      "NMC":{
         "shares":"75836",
         "stales":177,
         "roundduration":106658
      },
      "BTC":{
         "shares":0,
         "stales":0,
         "roundduration":0
      }
   },
   "updated":1314817086
}

From Virginia we have a quite stable 89 ms latency to our master servers and I monitor it not to go above 100 ms. This ingress servers only loops your connections through to one of the master servers. We take advantage of the fast interconnection between well connected data centers. balancer.masterpool.eu now points to EU01 but will be obsolete in future. Thus if you are able please switch to one of those MIS.

Some users were anxiuous about my announcement of a US server. They had privacy concerns. Thus I'd want to make sure that all your data except some log files is located on two master servers located in germany. Furthermore the interconnection between MIS and the master servers is encrypted by using a VPN. Thus if you are located in the US and are a bit paranoid about your government I guess it's better to use the US server as it is more likely they monitor outbound connection (which is encrypted if you use the US MIS) than national connections.

If you have suggestions about how to make the system more secure and provide better privacy I'm really interested in feedback. But please keep in mind that I have to be able to pay for such a solution and that our first goal is to lower the latency. Thus if you want to send encrypted solved blocks via USB stick I probably don't like your idea

Furthermore if you have suggestions for more MIS locations please let me know. I guess it would make sense to have an Aussie server and and Asian server. But at the moment I don't even know if we have some users there. So if you are from down under or Asia please let me know.
