    1, Neoscrypt miner development
    It seems Ghostlander was working hard on further optimalization of Neoscrypt miner.
    Here is basic outlook of what has been done:
    NSGminer v0.9.2 released with my NeoScrypt OpenCL kernel v7 and other enhancements.

    1. All GCN based AMD Radeons get a hash rate increase of 20% to 100% depending on driver version. The difference between 14.6 and 15.7 drivers is less than 2% now, so R9 280X @ 1000MHz may deliver 500KH/s.

    2. Performance of the older VLIW based AMD Radeons was doubled simply. HD6970 @ 925MHz delivers 255KH/s now.

    3. Added support for the very old VLIW based AMD Radeons of HD4000 series. HD4870 @ 750MHz can do 60KH/s. Not very much, but what do you expect of a card 8 years old?

    4. Added initial support for the NVIDIA hardware. Thanks to the Feathercoin community for their donation of 0.3 BTC spent on a GTX 750 Ti. Performance improved from 50KH/s to 185KH/s @ 1400MHz shaders. Older GeForce cards down to the very old 8000 series are also known to work.

    5. NVIDIA Management Library (NVML) may be used to provide with temperature and fan speed data. Copy nvml.dll from your driver distribution package to the miner’s directory.

    2, Fundraiser for Ghostlander in progress
    By checking add 733GhostxAXH9DEoTh2SzpcP9xh7CAeURF you may see, that FTC community donated 60k+ FTC to Ghost. With new release of optimized miner, please consider sending some more! Once he polish the miner, work on POS might start 🙂

    3, Successfull fundraiser for ChrisJ
    Since ChrisJ left FTC and joined WCN he was pretty much asking internet for help all the time. His fundraiser for medical expanses seems to be very legit. He is lamenting about headaches year in a row now! So I hope he will get some well deserved help soon. And i am very pleased some FTC community members donated a lot in this action!

    Thank you!!

    Also, here are new instructions to run BTC Core 0.12 full node!

    4, Monster 300 000 FTC bounty
    As you may have noticed we launched several bounties in 2016. I strongly encourage all members to express opinions in each thread. And if you are potencial developer, don’t be shy and ask questions or propose your ideas. With some of the projects realized the bounty value in BTC might soon be very very interesting!

    http://forum.feathercoin.com/topic/8314/ios-wallet-bounty-no-1-thread-100-000-ftc

    5, Poloniex integration
    It seems main catch for Poloniex integration is that we share same genesis block with Litecoin. Do we just swallow that? I propose not, please demand addition and ask Poloniex questions about that issue 🙂

    Also if you know anybody fluent in Mandarin, please ask them to ask BTC38 or Jubi.
    Thanks a lot!

    6, Death of Cryptsy
    After some time, Cryptsy death is seen as huge relief across altcoin community. Many coins was suffering due to manipulated trades of insolvent exchange. Now when Cryptsy is gone, vast revaluation of many coins is taking place. Feathercoin is one of them.

    7, Mapping FTC history
    Wrapper started FTC history thread. Please help to fill holes in our collective memory!

  • part of point 2; “work on POS might start” ?

    this point raises its ugly head again, i’d like to know the what, when ,why and how of adding POS to ftc?

    again i’m always lost at why ftc would make this move?

    There is no what, when, why and how yet, therefore i reserve right not to comment on it.
    The part I know is that Ghost have some brilliant idea and I trust him in full extend.
    Maybe he will comment bit more, maybe not. It is up to him.

    POS is such a broad term i’d like some clarification of where people heads at with it? i.e. as a way to mine ftc i think (well know) it’d be a huge mistake.


  • Moderators

    There will be no full move from POW to POS for feathercoin, but as reaction on the ugly accusations and discussions from last year, Ghostlander is working on a replacement for ACP.

    The implementation will be transparent for miners and there will be no hard cut.

    Can you remove the FTC history? It’s just for FTC forum members at the moment …
