    Keep plowing everyone… it just gives us more time to work on back-end items.

    Saturday/Sunday

    • Taking a break

    Monday

    • Will have first draft complete for contest
    • Picking up the $1000 worth of money orders… will take pic to use for promotion
    • Will continue with the gamer miner project

    If you guys keep pushing and making an effort to let people know about your site, we could hit 1000 members. Could you imagine the difference on impact our press release would have if we hit 1000 members right around the time the hard-fork hits? Wow!

    It did show higher than that before. I am getting the stats page to be adjusted for a smaller selection of blocks to more accurately show time per block and time to retarget.

    It’s gonna be another week.

    Just sit back. Every coin is getting burned. LTC just went down in difficulty.


  • Regular Member | Tip Magic8Ball

    Nicked an old card from a friend for the weekend - an extra 70k Hash/s for the push.

    Think this will blow over after the alt coin a day craze is over. Currently Worldcoin is eating up a lot of hashes but will drop soon.


  • Regular Member | Tip zerodrama

    Weirdness: Network hashrate down. give-me-ftc.com hashrate multiplying. Very interesting.


  • | Tip Bushstar

    The stats page has now been updated to get the block time and retarget time from the last 120 blocks so not always the last retarget. If the retarget is less than 120 block before the current block, then it will count back to the retarget.

    http://stats.feathercoin.com/

    Expected Time per Block 0 day(s), 1 hour(s), 7 min, 41 sec
    Time to Retarget 7 day(s), 8 hour(s), 0 min, 42 sec

    Thx, Bushstar. It’s important to have an idea when the coin will settle. WorldCoin is trying to offer a technological solution to a management problem. We don’t need 15 second confirmations. Most people wait longer to have the automated self-check out compute a total. It’s a really thin band-aid.

    Also for those who argued for us to stay on with the old algorithm:
    It is now 152 blocks before retarget @33000. This is going to take 7 days.
    It is now 1524 blocks before the original retarget. That comes to 70 days.
    There has been a regular decline in hashrate. 7 days could extend to 10, 70 to 100.

    Let’s learn from this experience. Worrying about hypothetical issues about versions persisting too long and telling people to just believe in the coin was too rhetorical and did not take into account the facts: THE MATH. We should make a graph of the hashrate drop and draw some measurable conclusions about confidence and tension in how the coin was perceived.

    It appears I was right on the money with serraz’s pool. Even though hashrates have gone down, his ftc pool approaches 25% capacity much like his ltc pool. These miners stick around. We’ll see what coinotron miners do to the hashrate.

    zerodrama brings a good point, what is the ‘taboo’ of updating the client software frequently? ie what is the down side to making frequent changes? many softwares have optional automatic updates, is there any non-technical reasons why crypto-wallets don’t write their installers to offer this?


  • | Tip pyxis

    Hi Bush, when your back please update Pools running Feathercoin 0.6.4 and include wemineftc.com, Cheers


  • Regular Member | Tip zerodrama

    @FoBoT

    With cryptocoins and 51% it really is about making a conscious choice. Which is why Bitcoin did not force the update. Otherwise they would look like central bank.

    KenDog77 has now added 11Mh to the fc.dontmine.me pool. I am currently chasing an even larger miner to move things along. Anything I can do to speed this up I will, I’m taking the pro-active approach. Once we are past this block our difficulty adjust should suit us well.

    Good news.

    Btw, what happenned to that dog-not-botnet (or something like that). I remember my eyes almost popped out when saw that hash appear on my pool.

    Good spot. I’m chasing the pool owner to see if we can get any contact with this miner.

    I’m concerned because as of today, it STILL says 7 days, 8 hours.


  • Regular Member | Tip zerodrama

    It went to 7 days and 2 hours last night. It’s SUNDAY. Monday will be another story.

    just a shame that the pool have dropped from 207mhash to 183 within 24 hours.
    im becomming a bit concerned that the 33000 block target where to high.

    unless someone are able to convince one of thoose megahashers or have enough ftc to buy power this currency might die. even though it has an awesome society

    I have to disagree. FTC has such a deep infrastructure being put in place, this is the absolute beginning. We’ll get through this hump and keep pressing forward.
