Addresses with too many transactions?


  • Moderators | Tip wrapper

    I never had my question answered about why some Feathercoin addresses have won so many transactions fees that they are not viewable on the block explorers?

    http://cryptocoinexplorer.com:5750/block/78a30e0154192a5c6b86976d5bd41db0994584c82254fa66608ce1b5802da2b1

    Perhaps they can be explained by Pools?

    Anyone know the correct github and I’ll report the “bug” with the non displaying of addresses with large numbers of transactions.

    71om8JdKi72gihUwpsbzHNifmRpot8pv7u

    This address won 6 block In 1 hour at 9 o’clock 26.7.2013, to Block 56629

    At the current time 1/4 of all blocks are found by 71om8JdKi72gihUwpsbzHNifmRpot8pv7u ?

    Block 56655

    Its probably one of the larger pools

    coinotron 😉 i know

    many pool address can’t be shown to find out you just check their last found block on their page and open in explorer you then know pool address i know the top 6-7, but they change every 2-3k coinotron has change not too long ago but they find a lots of blocks.

    explorer limit this to not been DOS by an address with million of small transaction in it.

    Sorry, I just re read all the old forum references and found this may be cointron’s address?

    What about this address 72yA8EccyGiuRTYeMZvgBgg11RVCestCME ?

    Between 18:00 pm 27th and 02:00 am 28th July 2013 - It won 70,000 FTC. As part of p2pool I won 0 (zero) blocks in the same period.

    I won 1000 FTC in 90 days at 0.7 MHash/sec so roughly…

    So this address has an equivalent hash rate of -> 70000 * (6/24) * 90 days * 0.7 MHash/sec / 1000

    = 8,800 MHash / Sec

    Basically, if someone has a lot of solo mining power, it is in their interest to leave mining coins with high difficulty and return when the difficulty goes down.

    By doing this they are maximising their coins in 2 ways. The poor suckers (like me) who mine at high difficulty, are mining at low hash rates, so no coins are given out.
    When the high hash rate miners come back in at low difficulty they then harvest a disproportionate amount of the coins, because they are being given out at a higher rate, and they are the major rate, so they get most of those coins.

    I don’t know if we can do anything about this? The previous software change to 6.4, seems to have improved things somewhat (difficulty change < 40%). If only we could have a minimum Transaction time that went up as difficulty goes down?

    The 2 charts show the Average Coins mined per day over a month against aimed for specification and the actual production each Day. I still have the spread sheet if anyone has the average hash rates per day for the last 3 months, I could easily add that.

    for the address it’s the attacker and the 2:15 at the end is 4:30 and start not 18:12 but 18:30 as he manipulate time. so 10h for 70000 FTC=350 block most of them at 81 difficulty and some at 114.

    calculation is related to diff and since we took a long hit at 188 that is more then 2 times what he mine you calculation is way off.

    600/350 = 1.714 minutes per block let say at diff ~90 on average

    i don’t have the formula, but time between block , difficulty and hashrate relation are linear

    currently from the stat page : with 80% at 132 and 20% at 123.29 difficulty with 2.8 minutes per block = 3.4Gh/s but hash rate have go down in that 60 block window

    so the figure seems around the same rate he had at 90 diff so 3-3.5 Gh/s seems to be the numbers. that correlate what I see that night that he had 57% and the stat page was showing 5.8Gh/s when on 2 blocks mined by known pools address (no time manipulation).

    Have I mentioned that I LOVE your graphs??? I do… they’re awesome.

    No one has updated the Feathercoin block explorer, so Addresses with too many blocks are displayed. This is is a bug with the Block explorer.

    What is the method of reporting BUGS for the Feathercoin Forum Block explorer?. Unless the Feathercoin Block explorer works you can not confirm transactions correctly. It is a major BUG.

    I will report it again, to the correct place, person, and give another chance for action.

    As you can see, the Feathercoin difficulty is 191, as of 4th August, if a large amount of that Hash rate is removed at the end of Sunday, we will be left with a high hash rate again for potentially days (again). This is worse than in June when the Hash was only hiked up to 181.

    I started this thread 7 days ago and there has been no progress fixing the bug. Very disappointing.

    The difficulty is going to stay at ~200 as long as price on exchanges doesn’t fluctuate significantly. Considering buy support, the price is unlikely to fall below 0.00180 BTC in the very near future.

    UPD: It looks like the pump & dump game continues. Large buy walls were removed on BTC-e, so FTC is falling a bit.

    Ghostlander, Here’s a chart of the blocks per day against difficulty. I’ve zoomed in on the last 51 days.

    I think we’re (Feathercoin) in a new, bleeding edge situation, the cusp of wide acceptance. So what has happened in the past may not be the best guide to what is going to happen. For instance, I’ve now noticed a significant weekend hash swing that explains some of the hash rate variability, I’ve also experienced and seen the effect of other high Hash miners moving from Feathercoin to support other coins.

    Also, I can’t become a developer, in the long run, I would just like to run my mining just at night, during “Economy 7” (UK night electricity rate), to support the Feathercoin network, as a cause of Hash rate swings. We can then decide optimum block average times for difficulty adjustment to the actual conditions of the network, not the usual guess…

    I am trying to find if anyone can easily tell me what to do having identified a serious bug in the Block Chain Explorer? Mainly to help anyone else with the same problem. If I had succeeded it would also have been fixed by now.
