Re: [masterpool.eu] Merged Mining - 1% Fee - TX fees distrib

Post by nodemaster » Sun Sep 04, 2011 7:01 pm

As MasterPool will implement several blockchains there are some announcements on BTC forum some on NMC forum, etc. People were complaining, that the information about the pool is cluttered throughout several bulletin boards. I tried to find a solution for this problem. However I didn't want to have something like an additional bulletin board. A blog won't allow enough user interaction and a guest book is way too 90ies syle 8-)

Thus I came up with a solution that hopefully fits our needs. I named it Jumble! It's a ... well .... jumble ... made up out of a bit twitter and something from reddit and a kind of chat. Perhaps micro forum fits it best. Please use it to post links, ask for help, or post interesting stuff from other bulletin boards which might be of interest to other pool members as long as it don't exceed 240 characters. It's working as follows. The pool operator (me) can set up to three threads to be sticky on request. 15 more threads can be created by every pool member. The most current threads are on top. A comment will pull a thread back to top. Thus old topics will vanish automagically after some time.

Of course this is a prototype. If you feel we need to change something let me know ;)

Dude.

Can you please help me? I have been looking high and low for the patch to bitcoind that would make /merged-mine-proxy work, it keeps giving me -32601 Method not found '' looking at the source code of merged-mine-proxy there are RPC calls that do not exist in the original bitcoind that is being called.

Can you help a brother out please? :)

Not sure about the "method not found" message, but it seems your bitcoind is lacking merged mining functionality. You have to compile bitcoind from the source that came with your copy of merged-mine-proxy. As far as I know merged mining is not in original bitcoind until now.

Thanks I just figured that out just now and got the test up and running.

The "method not found" was caused by the fact that I was running the official bitcoind with the wxWidgets patch only.

Once again thanks for the fast response it's appreciated.

Due to the possibly upcoming attack of BitcoinEXpress ( http://bit.ly/poTuzs ) MasterPool will start validating NMC blocks beginning with the next round until further notice. The current block will still be paid out directly.

What do you mean by "validating NMC blocks"?

I wanted to say that I reenable the blockchain to wait for 120 confirmations. But since BitcoinEXpress is rolling back to block 10k it would not help anything at all. Thus I'll leave it as it is hoping the best....

Dear MasterPool user


you are getting this email because you registered on MasterPool. I'd like to inform you about a severe issue on namecoin blockchain.

Due to the upcoming 51% attack to the namecoin network as outlined on the forums [1][2] MasterPool can not guarantee the safety of your namecoins. In fact if BitcoinEXpress will succeed with his attack and resets the blockchain to block 10000 all blocks ever mined on MasterPool will be undone. This is not only a problem with MasterPool but with all exchanges and pools. The attack is scheduled for block 19100.

At the moment the community is trying to mount countermeasures but it is still unclear if we get enough hashing power to counter this attack. So if you are unsure about what to do and want to be on the safe side it might be the best to withdraw all your namecoins from MasterPool, stop your namecoind, backup your wallet.dat AND your blockchain and wait for the storm to pass.

Your other option is to not withdraw your namecoins from MasterPool. However I CAN NOT guarantee for their safety. Thus you take the risk of loosing ALL your namecoins. I will however do my best to keep them safe. But if the blockchain is reset to block 10k they are gone anyway :-(

MasterPool will stay up during the time of attack. And we'll try to start merged mining on block 19200. If you are brave enough and want to help overcome this issue please consider to put all your available hashing power onto the namecoin blockchain. At the moment this seems to be the only possibility to effectively counter the attack. If you want to help secure the namecoin blockchain please register on at least one other pool to make sure you have an alternative if MasterPool is forced offline during this attack for any reason. Other namecoin pools are for example:

* DoubleC's Namecoin pool: http://bitparking.com/pool
* Davincij15's pool : http://www.nmcbit.com/

Due to the attack Davincij15 offers a very competitive payment of 0.00003030 BTC (yes correct: bitcoins!) per namecoin share [3]. Thus if you are mining BTC in pay per share mode you might want to consider this offer in order to strengthen the namecoin network and get a bunch of bitcoins. Please tell your friends as well!


Happy mining!

Could you please provide some more information, like the host and port you are using and perhaps via PM your username/ID? Thank you!
