Strengthen the network

    Hi guys! I know that doing solo mining is the best way to help with network security. I don’t have recourses for that. I was wondering if running a wallet all the time is of any help to the project?

    You don’t have to solo mine. You could also join a p2pool. It’s decentralized too and you get paid directly to your own wallet with completely fresh coins.

    Here is a list of all p2pools that are available.

    You can join any pool. The main difference between all pools are their fees and their location. Just choose a pool that is close to you. And don’t worry if your pool has no other miners on it. The hashrate is shared between all p2pools.

    @tobi97l Thanks! I tried joining a p2pool and even though my miner sends successful hashes (accepted) the pool keeps saying “no shares yet” next to my address.

    It takes some time, until the p2pool shows hashes for a miner, as it takes an average to determine the miner’s hashrate.

    Sorry again return to this question: is it of any use to keep feathercoin wallet running all the time (just to be a peer for other guys who are catching up on blockchain). Or the difference is so negligible that no sense to keep it open?

    @slakov the answer is: it depends…

    Every node active in the network helps stabilizing the infrastructure, relaying new blocks and the contained transactions and helping new nodes to sync.
    On the down size it costs some power and therefore energy costs to run a node, so I’d say, if you have a wallet on a system powered on anyway or on a low power system like a RaspberryPi keep it on. If you have to run a normal pc to just run a wallet, it’s no effcient due to power costs and I wouldn’t do it


  • | Tip Tobi97l

    Yes. For example my mining pc is running the wallet the whole time. But i wouldn’t turn it on just for running the wallet. But because it is mining anyway i can run the wallet without any additional cost.

    Also if you are mining you will want connections so your pool success is distributed first.

    @wrapper you mean just faster, right? I assume it won’t affect the share size )
