[Guide] Startup mining feathercoin Solo/Pool for windows ...

microCoin - MRC - [µ] - Fair crypto. No premine. No instamine.

**microCoin uses scrypt-jane POW mining with modified nFactor.** Fair crypto. No premine. No instamine. With the modified nFactor the coin will keep decreasing in GPU mining power, resulting in more profitable and fair mining rewards for CPU miners also. microCoin aims to be a deflationary currency for investors. microCoin can equally be used as a long-term trading instrument for investors as well as a currency for shops, games and any other services.

[ANN][ANDROID MINING][AIRDROP] NewEnglandcoin: Scrypt RandomSpike

New England
New England 6 States Songs: https://www.reddit.com/newengland/comments/er8wxd/new_england_6_states_songs/
NewEnglandcoin
Symbol: NENG
NewEnglandcoin is a clone of Bitcoin using scrypt as a proof-of-work algorithm with enhanced features to protect against 51% attack and decentralize on mining to allow diversified mining rigs across CPUs, GPUs, ASICs and Android phones.
Mining Algorithm: Scrypt with RandomSpike. RandomSpike is 3rd generation of Dynamic Difficulty (DynDiff) algorithm on top of scrypt.
1 minute block targets base difficulty reset: every 1440 blocks subsidy halves in 2.1m blocks (~ 2 to 4 years) 84,000,000,000 total maximum NENG 20000 NENG per block Pre-mine: 1% - reserved for dev fund ICO: None RPCPort: 6376 Port: 6377
NewEnglandcoin has dogecoin like supply at 84 billion maximum NENG. This huge supply insures that NENG is suitable for retail transactions and daily use. The inflation schedule of NengEnglandcoin is actually identical to that of Litecoin. Bitcoin and Litecoin are already proven to be great long term store of value. The Litecoin-like NENG inflation schedule will make NewEnglandcoin ideal for long term investment appreciation as the supply is limited and capped at a fixed number
Bitcoin Fork - Suitable for Home Hobbyists
NewEnglandcoin core wallet continues to maintain version tag of "Satoshi v0.8.7.5" because NewEnglandcoin is very much an exact clone of bitcoin plus some mining feature changes with DynDiff algorithm. NewEnglandcoin is very suitable as lite version of bitcoin for educational purpose on desktop mining, full node running and bitcoin programming using bitcoin-json APIs.
The NewEnglandcoin (NENG) mining algorithm original upgrade ideas were mainly designed for decentralization of mining rigs on scrypt, which is same algo as litecoin/dogecoin. The way it is going now is that NENG is very suitable for bitcoin/litecoin/dogecoin hobbyists who can not , will not spend huge money to run noisy ASIC/GPU mining equipments, but still want to mine NENG at home with quiet simple CPU/GPU or with a cheap ASIC like FutureBit Moonlander 2 USB or Apollo pod on solo mining setup to obtain very decent profitable results. NENG allows bitcoin litecoin hobbyists to experience full node running, solo mining, CPU/GPU/ASIC for a fun experience at home at cheap cost without breaking bank on equipment or electricity.

CPU Minable Coin Because of dynamic difficulty algorithm on top of scrypt, NewEnglandcoin is CPU Minable. Users can easily set up full node for mining at Home PC or Mac using our dedicated cheetah software.
Research on the first forked 50 blocks on v1.2.0 core confirmed that ASIC/GPU miners mined 66% of 50 blocks, CPU miners mined the remaining 34%.
NENG v1.4.0 release enabled CPU mining inside android phones.

Decentralization and Community Driven NewEnglandcoin is a decentralized coin just like bitcoin. There is no boss on NewEnglandcoin. Nobody nor the dev owns NENG.
We know a coin is worth nothing if there is no backing from community. Therefore, we as dev do not intend to make decision on this coin solely by ourselves. It is our expectation that NewEnglandcoin community will make majority of decisions on direction of this coin from now on. We as dev merely view our-self as coin creater and technical support of this coin while providing NENG a permanent home at ShorelineCrypto Exchange.

ASIC/GPU Mining Pools Warning to Big ASIC Miners Due to DynDiff Algo on top of Scrypt, solo mining is recommended for ASIC/GPU miners. Further more, even for mining pools, small mining pool will generate better performance than big NENG mining pool because of new algo v1.2.x post hard fork.
The set up configuration of NENG for scrypt pool mining is same as a typical normal scrypt coin. In other word, DynDiff on Scrypt algo is backward compatible with Scrypt algo. Because ASIC/GPU miners rely on CPU miners for smooth blockchain movement, checkout bottom of "Latest News" section for A WARNING to All ASIC miners before you decide to dump big ASIC hash rate into NENG mining.
(1) Original DynDiff Warning: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5027091.msg48324708#msg48324708 (2) New Warning on RandomSpike Spike difficulty (244k) introduced in RandomSpike served as roadblocks to instant mining and provide security against 51% attack risk. However, this spike difficulty like a roadblock that makes big ASIC mining less profitable. In case of spike block to be mined, the spike difficulty immediately serve as base difficulty, which will block GPU/ASIC miners effectively and leave CPU cheetah solo miners dominating mining almost 100% until next base difficulty reset.

Trying solo mining with "Futurebit Moonlander 2"

Hello /nyancoins
I just want to share my thoughts on going solo with my Futurebit Moonlander 2 today. I still didn't figure this one out, so any help will be appreciated.
First of all I had up and running nyancoin-qt. The chain was up to date and I also had my nyancoin.conf set like this:
rpcuser=NyanCoin rpcpassword=x rpcallowip=127.0.0.1 rpcport=33700 server=1 
Path:
C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\NyanCoin 
My bfgminer was running with this parameters on the same machine.
bfgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://127.0.0.1:33700 -u NyanCoin -p x -S MLD:all --set MLD:clock=600 
That cmd is also the way I usually connect to pools, like litecoinpool.org etc. Check here for my last test on a different pool some minutes ago.
Trying to mine NyanCoin solo it will fail and look like this.
I also started mining on my wallet (minning/start mining), just to make sure I didn't miss the obvious one...
Last but not least I tried to find if nmap gives me an indication if the server is up and I saw this:
Starting Nmap 7.70 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2019-05-05... NSE: Loaded 148 scripts for scanning. NSE: Script Pre-scanning. [...] Scanning localhost (127.0.0.1) [65535 ports] [...] Discovered open port 33701/tcp on 127.0.0.1 Completed SYN Stealth Scan... 
This feels like port 33700 isn't even active? The only one close to it I get is 33701... I really don't know what to do with this information. Changing the port to 33701 in my bfgminer parameters does not solve the issue, also no luck with bfgminer-rpc so far...
Anyone out here who could help me get this job done?
Thanks!

such beginner shibe thread wow how to get coin

 how to shibecoin v rich in minutes much instruct so simple any doge can do 

START HERE

UPDATE 1/21/14: I'm not updating this guide anymore. Most of the steps should still work though. See the wiki or check the sidebar for updated instructions.
Before you do anything else, you need to get a wallet. Until there's a secure online wallet, this means you need to download the dogecoin client.
Now open the client you just downloaded. You'll be given a default address automatically, and it should connect to peers and start downloading the dogechain (aka blockchain in formal speak). You'll know because there will be a progress bar at the bottom and at the lower right there should be a signal strength icon (TODO: add screenshots).
If you've waited 2 or 3 minutes and nothing is happening, copy this:
maxconnections=100 addnode=95.85.29.144 addnode=162.243.113.110 addnode=146.185.181.114 addnode=188.165.19.28 addnode=166.78.155.36 addnode=doge.scryptpools.com addnode=doge.netcodepool.org addnode=doge.pool.webxass.de addnode=doge.cryptopool.it addnode=pool.testserverino.de addnode=doge.luckyminers.com addnode=doge.cryptovalley.com addnode=miner.coinedup.comdoge addnode=doge.cryptoculture.net addnode=dogepool.pw addnode=doge.gentoomen.org addnode=doge.cryptominer.net addnode=67.205.20.10 addnode=162.243.113.110 addnode=78.46.57.132 
And paste it into a new text file called dogecoin.conf, which you then place into the dogecoin app directory.
Now restart your qt client and the blockchain should start downloading in about 1-2 minutes.
Once it finished downloading, you're ready to send and receive Dogecoins!

GETTING COINS

Decide how you want to get Dogecoin. Your options are:
I'll go into detail about each of these. I'm currently writing this out. I'll make edits as I add sections. Suggestions are welcome.

MINING

Mining is how new dogecoins are created. If you're new to crypto currencies, read this. To mine (also called "digging"), a computer with a decent GPU (graphics card) is recommended. You can also mine with your CPU, but it's not as efficient.

GPU MINING

These instructions cover only Windows for now. To mine, you'll need to figure out what GPU you have. It'll be either AMD/ATI or Nvidia. The setup for both is approximately the same.

Step One: Choose a pool

There's a list of pools on the wiki. For now it doesn't really matter which one you choose. You can easily switch later.
NOTE: You can mine in two ways. Solo mining is where you mine by yourself. When you find a block you get all the reward. Pool mining is when you team up with other miners to work on the same block together. This makes it more likely that you'll find a block, but you won't get all of it, you'll have to split it up with others according to your share of the work. Pool mining is recommended because it gives you frequent payouts, because you find more blocks. The larger the pool you join, the more frequent the payouts, but the smaller the reward you get.
Over a long period of time the difference between pool and solo mining goes away, but if you solo mine it might be months before you get any coins.

Step two: Set up pool account

The pool you chose should have a getting started page. Read it and follow the instructions. Instructions vary but the general idea is:
When you're done with this, you'll need to know:

Step three: Download mining software

For best performance you'll need the right mining software.
Unzip the download anywhere you want.

Step four: Set up miner

Create a text file in the same folder as your miner application. Inside, put the command you'll be running (remove brackets).
For AMD it's cgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://: -u -p
For Nvidia it's cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://: -O :
Substitute the right stuff in for the placeholders. Then on the next line of the text file type pause. This will let you see any errors that you get. Then save the file with any name you want, as long as the file extension is .bat. For example mine_serverName.bat.

Step five: Launch your miner

Just open the .bat file and a command line window should pop up, letting you know that the miner is starting. Once it starts, it should print out your hash rate.
If you now go to the pool website, the dashboard should start showing your hashrate. At first it'll be lower than what it says in the miner, but that's because the dashboard is taking a 5 minute average. It'll catch up soon enough.
NOTE: A normal hashrate is between 50 Kh/s up to even 1 Mh/s depending on your GPU.

You're now mining Dogecoins

That's it, nothing more to it.

CPU MINING

CPU mining isn't really recommended, because you'll be spending a lot on more on power than you'd make from mining Dogecoin. You could better spend that money on buying Dogecoin by trading. But if you have free electricity and want to try it out, check out this informative forum post.

Trading

Trading has been difficult so far, but Dogecoin just got added to a few new exchanges. If you don't have a giant mining rig, this is probably the best way to get 100k or more dogecoins at the moment. I'll write up a more complete guide, but for now check out these sites:

Faucets

Faucets are sites that give out free coins. Usually a site will give out somewhere between 1 and 100 Dogecoin. Every site has its own time limits, but usually you can only receive coins once every few hours, or in some cases, days. It's a great way to get started. All you do is copy your address from the receive section of your wallet and enter it on some faucet sites. Check out /dogecoinfaucets for more. If you go to each site on there you might end up with a couple hundred Dogecoin!

Begging

This method is pretty straightforward. Post your receiving address, and ask for some coins. Such poor shibe. The only catch is, don't do it here! Please go to /dogecoinbeg.

Tips

At the moment there are two tip bots:
Other redditors can give you Dogecoin by summoning the tip bot, something like this:
+dogetipbot 5 doge
This might happen if you make a good post, or someone just wants to give out some coins. Once you receive a tip you have to accept it in a few days or else it'll get returned. Do this by following the instructions on the message you receive in your inbox. You reply to the bot with "+accept". Commands go in the message body. Once you do that, the bot will create a tipping address for you, and you can use the links in the message you receive to see your info, withdraw coins to your dogecoin-qt wallet, see your history, and a bunch of other stuff.
As a bonus, so_doge_tip has a feature where you can get some Dogecoins to start with in exchange for how much karma you have. To do this, send the message "+redeem DOGE" to so_doge_tip. You'll need to create a tipping account if you don't have one.
If you want to create a tipping account without ever being tipped first, message either of the bots with "+register" and an address will be created for you.

(Guide) Solo-Mining Raven with an AMD GPU on Windows

I have seen a few posts of late that have wondered how to go about solo-mining Raven Coin using an AMD GPU. I went through the trouble of getting one properly configured using a private stratum server, and I figured that I would make a guide as to how I set mine up to perhaps save anyone else time and/or trouble in the future. This should theoretically also work with NVIDIA as well, however I do not currently own any so no promises.
Disclaimer: If you choose to Solo-Mine, then you should keep in mind that you are almost DEFINITELY NOT going to find a block without some serious hashing power, serious luck, or a combination of both.
Part 1: Downloading the necessary software
.Net Core 2.0: (necessary to run the stratum-engine)
postgreSQL Database: (To track mining stats, and ensure the server is running properly)
Mining-Core Release 24+ (The Stratum-Engine)
Mining-Core has VERY I repeat VERY recently updated the engine to support the x16r algorithm in the last few days. edit Support has now been merged into the master branch. Therefore, it is no longer necessary to download from the Developmental branch of their GitHub.
Part 2 compiling Miningcore from source
Fortunately, the developer(s) of Miningcore make it rather simple to build their source code. Simply double click the file named "windows-build.bat" located in the folder path /miningcore/src/MiningCore/ .
Part 3 Configuring postgreSQL for Miningcore using a gui for Beginners
Congratulations you setup your SQL Server!
Part 4 Configuring raven.conf
Navigate to -Your-Username-\AppData\Roaming\Raven\ and create a file named raven.conf. Using notepad edit the conf file to look like this:
rpcuser=user rpcpassword=*-Your-Special-Password-* rpcallowip=127.0.0.1 rpcport=42068 server=1 listen=1 daemon=1 gen=0 
Once you have edited your raven.conf file you MUST restart raven-qt for the changes to take effect.
Now navigate to \miningcore-24\examples\, and edit an example json to your liking using notepad, or you can feel free to use mine.
If you do elect to use mine, make sure to edit it to include your own wallet address, SQL password, and daemon password you selected when setting up the miningcore database and raven.conf file.

FINALLY FINISHED
Now that you have everything configured you will want to copy your config.json file into \miningcore-(your_version_number)\build\. then Shift+Right Click within the folder to open powershell or cmd prompt at that location and enter:
 dotnet MiningCore.dll -c config.json 
NOTES If you use my default ports, then you will have your mining software pointing to port 42061.
Example Bat File for Avermore

I am not a developer for Raven/Miningcore/ETC.
I will hopefully get some free time soon to hopefully clean up this guide, and do my best to answer any questions.
If you want to check your pool stats from a gui, you may open pgadmin3 and go to Servers > postgres > Databases > miningcore > Schemas > public > Tables, then right click on any of the tables to select View Data > View All Rows.
If my guide helps to save you time or trouble in any way, and you feel like sending RVNs flying to a new friend, I certainly won't object.

Solo mining question

So I'm able to successfully pool mine.
I wanted to try solo mining.
I'm using cgminer on Win 10. It works fine on the pool with a stratum+tcp address and a user.workepass combination.
I've got defcoin-qt running and configured as recommended. running on 1337, user, pass, rpcallow, rpcconnect, rpcport, rpcbind, all those are set.
I can wget to the ip and port, and of course I get method not allowed, I can hit it in a browser and I get JSONRPC server handles only POST requests. I suspect this is all normal, and well and good.
However, when I hit it with the cgminer with the following conf file options (of course with passwords and IP matching my defcoin-qt configuration): "pools" : [
{
"url" : "http://192.168.1.xxx:1337",
"user" : "username",
"pass" : "password"
}
]

I get "pool 0 slow/down or credentials invalid" every time. I've tried numerous configurations including localhost/127.0.0.1 and stratum address rather than http://, but I'm using http here because I expect it to work and I know that connecting http to that port on that IP works, both locally and from another local box.
Am I doing something boneheaded? I've triple checked the usepass, there are no special chars in case that would throw it off, just alphanumeric.

Tacotime mentioned a hard fork proposal to never let the block reward drop below 1 coin:
Code: if (blockReward < 1){ blockReward = 1; }
I assume this is merely delaying the problem, however. I proposed a fixed annual debasement (say 2%) with a tx fee cap of like 0.001% of the current block reward (or whatever sounds reasonable). That way we still get the spam protection without worrying about fee escalation down the road."

-2059: I was skeptical of this conspiracy theory at first but after thinking about the numbers and looking back at the code again, I'm starting to believe it.
These are not deep optimizations, just cleaning up the code to work as intended.
At 100 H/s, with 500k iterations, 70 cycles per L3 memory access, we're now at 3.5 GHz which is reasonably close. So the algorithm is finally memory-bound, as it was originally intended to be. But as delivered by the bytecode developers not even close.
I know this is going to sound like tooting our own horn but this is another example of the kind of dirty tricks you can expect from the 80% premine crowd and the good work being done in the name of the community by the Monero developers.
Assuming they had the reasonable, and not deoptimized, implementation of the algorithm as designed all along (which is likely), the alleged "two year history" of bytecoin was mined on 4-8 PCs. It's really one of the shadiest and sleaziest premines scams yet, though this shouldn't be surprising because in every type of scam, the scams always get sneakier and more deceptive over time (the simple ones no longer work)."

Everyone focuses on botnets because it has been so long since regular users were able to effectively mine a coin (due to every coin rapidly going high end GPU and ASIC) that the idea that "users" could vastly outnumber "miners" (botnet or otherwise) isn't even on the radar.
The vision here is a wallet that asks you when you want to install: "Do you want to devote some of you CPU power to help secure the network. You will be eligible to receive free coins as a reward (recommended) [check box]." Get millions of users doing that and it will drive down the value of mining to where neither botnets nor professional/industrial miners will bother, and Satoshi's original vision of a true p2p currency will be realized.

Other coins do use the word anonymous improperly, so we too have to play the marketing game. Most users will not bother looking at details to see which actually has more privacy; they'll assume anonymity > privacy. In a world with finite population, there's no such thing as anonymity. You're always "1 of N" possible participants.
Zero knowledge gives N -> everyone using the currency, ring signatures give N -> your choice, and CoinJoin gives N -> people who happen to be spending around the same amount of money as you at around the same time. This is actually the critical weakness of CoinJoin: the anonymity set is small and it's fairly susceptible to blockchain analysis. Its main advantage is that you can stick to Bitcoin without hard forking.
Another calculated marketing decision: I made most of the OP about ring signatures. In reality, stealth addressing (i.e. one-time public keys) already provides you with 90% of the privacy you need. Ring signatures are more of a trump card that cannot be broken. But Bitcoin already has manual stealth addressing so the distinguishing technological factor in CryptoNote is the use of ring signatures.
This is why I think having a coin based on CoinJoin is silly: Bitcoin already has some privacy if you care enough. A separate currency needs to go way beyond mediocre privacy improvements and provide true indistinguishably. This is true thanks to ring signatures: you can never break the 1/N probability of guessing correctly. There's no additional circumstantial evidence like with CoinJoin (save for IP addresses, but that's a problem independent of cryptocurrencies)."

  • Fast curve emission non-bitcoin-like curve as initially advertised and as it was widely accepted as suitable
Though we have to say two things to support current Monero community and devs:
  • The crippled miner was coded either by Bytecoin or CryptoNote, and 100% solved within a month by Monero community
  • The fast curve emission was a TFT miscalculation. He forgot to consider that as he was halving the block target he was unintentionally doubling the emission rate.

Step-by-step guide to coin hopping based on block value (follow-up to "Something is rotten in the state of DOGE mining")

I got a bunch of requests for an easier way to cheat (or "optimize") DOGE mining based on the predictable block rewards, so I created a better script that's much easier to use (and works with Windows as well as Linux). This one doesn't require modifying or compiling anything, so most of you should be able to get it working. If you have trouble, post your exact error messages, and post your cgminer commands and coinHopper.pl command without your real password.
 
Installation
Get the latest Dogecoin wallet. Make sure it's up to date. Apparently there were two 1.5 releases for Windows, so just re-install it to be sure. Start it in the background in case it needs to sync with the network or re-index the block chain (if you're upgrading from an older version).
Install Strawberry Perl. The script needs a couple packages that aren't included by default, so after installing Strawberry Perl, open up a command prompt, and run this:
cpanm JSON::RPC::Client cpanm Math::Random::MT 
Reboot. Strawberry Perl changes your environment a bit, and it's important to do your testing AFTER the changes take full effect.
 
Run cgminer
Run two copies of cgminer, one for DOGE and one for LTC (or DGC, vertcoin, etc). Note that these are each two separate commands, on two separate lines:
set TERM= cgminer.exe --api-listen --api-allow W:127.0.0.1 --api-port 4028 --scrypt -u MyDogeUser.worker -p x -o stratum+tcp://stratum6.dogehouse.org:993 
Press "g", then "d", and disable all of your GPUs. Two more commands to start the second cgminer:
set TERM= cgminer.exe --api-listen --api-allow W:127.0.0.1 --api-port 4029 --scrypt -u MyLTCUser.worker -p x -o stratum+tcp://usa2.wemineltc.com:3335 
Press "g", then "d", and disable all of your GPUs.
The "set TERM=" lines are important, or you'll get errors about a "dumb" terminal. This is a result of Strawberry Perl, so you'll need to add it to ANY .bat files you're using for mining in the future.
 
Run the wallet in server mode
The script needs to query your wallet to find out about new blocks, and by default the Windows version won't respond to API requests. Create a .bat file in your dogecoin directory containing the line:
dogecoin-qt.exe -server 
Run it. You will probably get an error message. That message should tell you how to set up dogecoin.conf and give you a long password. Do exactly what it tells you to do. Run the bat file again, and your wallet should now be running in server mode. Let it synchronize with the network completely before you continue.
 
Use the coinHopper script
Save coinHopper.pl somewhere. Update: After the block reward halves to 500,000, edit line 100 to say "500000" instead of "1000000". Open a command prompt and run it like this:
perl coinHopper.pl -rpcuser userNameFromDogecoinDotConf -rpcpass passwordFromDogecoinDotConf 
 
Troubleshooting
The script should be pretty good at telling you what's wrong. If it's having trouble talking to cgminer, make sure your cgminer.conf doesn't have any api-* settings; they can conflict with the command-line options. If it's having trouble talking to your wallet, try adding the following to dogecoin.conf:
server=1 daemon=1 listen=1 
If the script is madly hopping between coins, your wallet probably hasn't caught up to the network. The wallet seems to think it's up to date even when it's still an hour or so behind, so let the wallet sit for a minute or two after it says it's up to date.
 
General notes
Good luck! Or maybe, Good "It's Not Luck Any More"!

Solo-Mining 101: 25 easy steps to play the lottery

After finding my first block while solo mining for a mere 3 hours, here's an extensive step-by-step guide to solo-mining reddcoin as requested by Acidyo (thanks for the tip!). In case you're already mining in a pool, you can skip steps 0,1 and 2!

00. In case you're completely new to mining, download the lastest AMD Catalyst Drivers and the AMD app SDK (just google it) and install both. You might also want to read up on how to configure your miner to get the most out of your specific GPU, as I won't be covering that in this guide!

01. Download the reddcoin-qt wallet from http://www.reddcoin.com/#Wallets

02. Start the Wallet for the first time, let it sync till the progress bar ("Synchronizing with network...") at the bottom disappears and the intertwined arrows at the bottom right corner turno into a green mark.

03. On Windows 7 / 8, go to %appdata%\Reddcoin (that's C:\Users\yourUsername\AppData\Roaming\Reddcoin)

04. Create a new file called "reddcoin.conf" - the file extension must be .conf! Make sure it's not hidding the file extension as you might end up with "reddcoin.conf.txt" which won't work!

05. Open the file, paste the following into it and modify user and password to whatever you like:

rpcuser=username rpcpassword=password rpcallowip=127.0.0.1 rpcport=45443 server=1 gen=0

06. Save the file. Exit the reddcoin-qt wallet if it's running and start it up again. Your wallet will now run in server mode! Essentially, it's replacing your pool's stratum server that is sending your gpu the work packets!

07. Go to your cgminer directory. If you don't have it yet - download it here > http://dogecointutorial.com/misc/cgminer-3.7.2-windows.zip (If you want to download it elsewhere no problem, but make sure you're using version 3.7.2, later versions won't work!

08. Inside your cgminer directory, create a new config file "cgminer.conf" - editing this file to optimize your individual rig will require the most work! Paste the following into it, but beware, this is merely a template that you will have to edit yourself!

{ "pools" : [ { "name" : "http://127.0.0.1:45443", "url" : "http://127.0.0.1:45443", "user" : "yourUsername", "pass" : "yourPassword", "pool-priority" : "0" }, { "name" : "mine1.coinmine.pl", "url" : "stratum+tcp://mine1.coinmine.pl:6300", "user" : "yourUsername", "pass" : "yourPassword", "pool-priority" : "1" }, { "name" : "rdd.hashbros.org", "url" : "stratum+tcp://rdd.hashbros.org:3333", "user" : "yourUsername", "pass" : "yourPassword", "pool-priority" : "2" }, { "name" : "rdd.united-miners.com", "url" : "stratum+tcp://rdd.united-miners.com:3338", "user" : "yourUsername", "pass" : "yourPassword", "pool-priority" : "3" } ], "api-allow" : "W:127.0.0.1", "api-listen" : true, "api-port" : "4028", "failover-only" : true, "retry-pause" : "5", "hotplug" : "5", "kernel-path" : "/uslocal/bin", "log" : "5", "no-submit-stale" : true, "expiry" : "1", "queue" : "0", "scan-time" : "1", "scrypt" : true, "shares" : "0", "gpu-threads" : "1", "gpu-dyninterval" : "7", "gpu-engine" : "1000", "gpu-platform" : "0", "gpu-memclock" : "1500", "gpu-memdiff" : "0", "gpu-powertune" : "20", "intensity" : "20", "temp-hysteresis" : "3", "vectors" : "1", "worksize" : "512", "lookup-gap" : "2", "shaders" : "0", "thread-concurrency" : "24700" }

09. Now let's take a look at this thing! I'll go through it step-by-step.

10. The first section (within the [ ] brackets) consists of your local 'wallet server' as well as some additional reddcoin pools. I'll explain later (see #19+20), why you want to include some pools for your solo mining.

11. I suggest that you sign up on three different reddcoin pools. Preferably pools with a rather steady Network Hashrate and if possible with a closer geographical proximity to where you live, but that might be my "utmost-performance-OCD" that is telling you this ;)

12. When choosing pools, make sure they support the Stratum protocol! I chose a pool that is relatively close to where I live (coinmine.pl) as well as two medium-to-big pools (hashbros and united-miners), but choose whichever you like; as long as it has a constant userbase that is mining, you'll be fine.

13. For the first pool, which is your own pc 'wallet-server', only set the "user" and "pass" according to what you set in your reddcoin.conf (step #5). Leave the "url" at "http://127.0.0.1:45443" !

14. Edit each "url", "user" and "pass" statement according to your pool info and the workers created on them. You can add even more pools if you like, but I'm pretty sure that three are sufficient.

15. The second part of the config file consists of various arguments for your miner as to how it handles your gpu(s) and its client behaviour.

16. Like I stated before, I won't cover the gpu-specific stuff here. PLEASE set them according to your gear before running cgminer - for example, my intensity and gpu-memclock settings are likely too high for your rig and might crash your gpu's! Check everything starting from "gpu-threads" till the end of the file!

17. What you will want to set in order to optimize your solo-mining endeavour is this (it's already set in the template):

expiry = 1, queue = 0, scan-time = 1

18. Next up, if you're just editing your existing .conf file, make sure to add this awesome switch: failover-only = true

19. Let me explain what the 'failover' does and why you'll want to add some pools to your config: When mining by yourself, depending on your hashrate, it might take your miner longer to solve a block than the average one minute in which a new block is found (reddcoin-specific). This means that you might be working on an old block, that has been found already, for precious minutes, on which you could already be solving the new block. Adding pools to your config has the added bonus, that whenever any of your defined pools find a new block, they will tell this to your miner, so that you immediately skip the current block and start working on the next one. This ensures that your miner does not waste time with redundant work that has already been solved by someone else and maximizes your chances on finding a block yourself!

20. As an added bonus, should your wallet for some reason fall out of sync with the reddcoin network (which would disable you from solo-mining), your miner will start working for your defined pools as to not waste precious gpu cycles until you're back in sync, at which point you'll happily continue solo-mining.

21. In case you have a watercooling rig like me and your cgminer is prone to crash or create BSODs, these arguments might help you: "no-adl" : true, "text-only" : true (google them for more info on what they do exactly)

22. Once everything is set, check again! Your solo-mining project stands and falls by mostly this file! Save it!

23. Time to start it up! If you haven't done so yet, restart your reddcoin-qt wallet to ensure it runs in server mode! You won't see any noticeable change inside the wallet that would tell you that it's running in server mode.

24. Once the wallet has synced up with the network, start your cgminer! (cgminer.exe) IF you are using cgwatcher, make sure to disable the option "Restart miner if accepted don't change for X minutes" ! As you won't get shares for pool-work, this would restart your miner constantly otherwise.

25. If everything was done right, and cgminer isn't reporting any error, you are now solo-mining! And this is what it looks like, when you find one > http://i.imgur.com/kyGmXYR.png

I suggest you also look into cgwatcher if you're not using it yet. It's an awesome monitoring / managing software that makes unattended mining much easier! If you run into an error or some problems, just leave a comment and I'll try to help as best as I can.
Little Disclaimer: While I did my best to provide you with all the knowledge you need to set up solo-mining, I'm no expert either and things might not work out for you with this guide for various reasons. Just let me know, and I'll do my best to try and help you.
Finally, should you feel like tipping me, all donations are welcome. As I'm currently doing quite well reddcoin-wise, I'll be using all incoming tips to tip others on this subreddit that have greater need for some precious RDD ;) Have Fun and good luck on finding some blocks!

Proof of Loyalty - Staking

Proof of Loyalty Wiki: http://wiki.biblepay.org/Proof_Of_Loyalty
Proof of Loyalty Proposal: http://forum.biblepay.org/index.php?topic=90
Proof of Loyalty Testnet thread: http://forum.biblepay.org/index.php?topic=89.0
Potential Botnet? https://www.reddit.com/BiblePay/comments/7s3a0e/potential_botnet/
"Regarding keeping the botnet off of this version, all we really did was force everyone to upgrade or go off on a fork- if they are official clients, then they would have had to upgrade. So its possible we still have the same number of clients solo mining again, while the pool is really only 25% of biblepay now.
It would have been necessary for those clients to upgrade because (even though the 7 minute target isnt working), the parameter that was changed required an upgrade to continue on our 1.0.8.1 chain (IE that 7 minute parameter change forced the entire net to upgrade as it changed the future blockhashes).
Regarding the longer term plan, Im receiving some ideas in the inbox, one from West that I will take a look at in a few minutes. The one Alex and I spoke about in slack was : Merging in the PIVX stake miner, staking on thread zero. However Im a little conflicted on this still, as I think we should fully evaluate what we are trying to solve. I am against a botnet mining for greed with no loyalty, and the idea with the stakeminer is we are rewarding the loyal biblepay user more of a chance to solve a block, by asking them to stake part of their balance for a greater chance of mining that block. The pool is what complicates this, as people staking a balance to pool mine does not work very well with fractional shares. However, if we reward a BONUS to the one who found the block in proportion to the amount of BBP they staked (to help the pool find the block) that may work. Another words, Im leaning on the idea of making it easier to POW mine with staked balances across the board- whether pool mining or solo mining." -Rob
"Please Everyone Read this:
http://wiki.biblepay.org/Proof_Of_Loyalty
This is what I am working on to stave off the botnet.
The idea here is to ensure we have the information explained in a clear manner that captures the essence of the two key algorithms, so they can be conveyed as an enhancement to PoBh, and that so everyone understands the algorithm.
The plan is to enhance PoBH to be a hybrid: PoBH/POL. This will also help reward our loyal investors, those who help tithe the children, with the propensity for more rewards - and also, to help us make mobile mining on mobile phones a reality for the poor unbanked in the world.
My plan is to add the algorithm to testnet only, and to start testing this in a couple days in testnet.
Please if you have any concerns or questions lets discuss them so we can make this the best enhancement possible, and also regain our network back at the same time.
If we can test this over the next 30 days in testnet, we could potentially go live end of March with a mandatory.
Note, I do want 50 or so of us to start getting ready for testnet again, but a mandatory upgrade will be required for testnet so please ready machine but do not bother syncing.
PS Ill add Pool Effects to the wiki." -Rob
"Looks cool at first glance. It will widen the gap between early adopters and recent ones, but this seems a fair trade-off if it finally achieves the aim of getting rid off the botnets." -MIP
"That sounds awesome, I'm really curious how this will come into being! After reading the wiki I'm asking myself how all of this will work out for the different machines one owns. For example: I have 5 physical machines and 5 small virtual ones (rented). All of my so far earned BBP (a small 6 figure sum...) is collected in one wallet on one PC (well of course it is, since the pool doesn't differentiate between the single machines anyway and pays out to one address :-D). If I understand this right then only my PC with the (then "staked") BBP will receive the bonus from the POS (or POL) algorithm and all the other machines won't? Or, if I try to distribute my BBP to all of my machines, then of course I will lose all my precious coin age? Is there another possibility to profit from previously earned coins on different machines?" -dave_bbp
"Yes, you already gravitated in on the tradeoff with proof-of-stake systems, personal wallet security. You do need to have something at stake in order to gain an edge with this system, so another words its harder to have cold wallets. There are things we can do to help solve that problem however, such as promoting encrypted wallets and finding a way to unlock them for staking, but that is a much smaller problem than dealing with a botnet, something I think we can engineer a solution for over the long term.
Anyway to answer your question, the wallet at home would have a huge advantage and the ones that are rented would not hardly solve blocks at all. You would need to transfer some BBP into the VPS wallets (or into a wallet.dat with a smaller balance and copy the wallet.dat to the VPS machines), then those machines would have an advantage.
For the ones pointed at the pool, you would want to leave staking on, as we are going to reward a bonus to the one who finds the block." -Rob
"I just read it and I like it very much, good job! Smiley I think this will attract even more investors and our price will go up. These days an increasing number of people actually tend to stay invested in a certain coin long term, so this should attract them, especially with that name which is truly awesome and interesting - Proof of Loyalty.
And I love the idea of opening up the possibility of earning BiblePay on mobile devices because of staking which doesn't require much energy, especially in developing countries." -inblue
"I'm totally winging it here, and I have no idea if it is possible or a good idea, but could one solution to this be to "stake" our pool balance?
i.e. If we have mined 2k BBP with vps servers, home machines all pointed at the pool, and leave the 2k BBP on the pool so that it can be staked, could that solve the moving BBP into VPS server issue?" -znffal
"Unfortunately no for multiple reasons, one the miner who is staking needs to sign the block, two the balances wont be on the pool for long - when auto withdrawals kick in they will general be off the server, and three the stake age on the pool server is very low - because its constantly mining coinbase blocks that take 120 confirms and paying things out.
So the "stake amount" has to come from the personal users wallet." -Rob
"Understand, this is a discussion about a future feature that is being developed and yet to be tested. So you have to look "big picture" on this as specifics on how it will affect you are going to be hard to find until a lot of testing is done and it's close to deployed. But in simple terms, we'll use some imaginary numbers. Lets say you and I have identical computers that each have a 1/10,000 chance of finding the next block. If you've got 10K BBP that you got 10 days ago, and you want to "stake" it, you get 100K mining points. Let's say I've got 5K BBP that I've had for 20 days and I want to "stake" all of it as well, so I get 100K mining points. So the system recognizes our 100K mining points as an indicator of a supporters of the coin, and makes mining the next block easier, and we both end up having a 1/8,000 chance of finding the next block, whereas a third party with an identical computer but no mining points ends up dropping to a 1/14,000 chance of finding the next block. It's not entirely clear if by staking your coins will be "reset" in age automatically, only reset in age if they find a block or never reset in age. It seems they will only be reset in age if successful, based on the statement "When one single PC of the 1000 solves one block, the coins used from the shared wallet that were in-stake are now spent and have zero coin age."
The statement "Meaning that a botnet with 1000PCs and a 100K bbp balance is very close in equality to a single user with ONE PC and a 100K bbp balance." on the surface seems to be untrue. But, in practice it will be true in my opinion. On the surface, 1000 machines hashing with a 90% bonus will win a lot more than one machine with a 90% bonus. But in practice since the motivation of a botnet is immediate profit, they're unlikely to retain coins very long, they'll never build up a coin age modifier like a normal user will. If they started to behave like a normal user and hold coins long term, then they would de facto be like a "normal" user that runs a lot of VPS." -616westwarmoth
"Yes, the coin-age is not relinquished until you actually successfully stake a block (IE Mine a block with a stake in it). At that moment you lose all the coin age on the inputs.
But also, that coin-age will only be useable in exactly one block. If some nefarious group is sharing a wallet and trying to stake the same coins, that will result in a double-spend attempt and a d-dos ban on the node that happens to fall through second. For that reason its better for them just to keep it simple and stake distinct wallet balances so they dont get flagged with a double spend attempt." -Rob
"Proof-Of-Loyalty is ready to test in testnet, please fire up as many testnet testers as possible here:
http://forum.biblepay.org/index.php?topic=89.msg1093#msg1093" -Rob
"I am in the process of purchasing and setting up 20-30 machines to mine on the pool how will this effect me?" -SEO_Account
"For now, it won't affect you at all. In the future, you might find that your 30 machines don't do as well as 1 machine with a good stake." -616westwarmoth
"So better off spending the $ on coin and using 1 powerful machine to mine? 100% this is happening? It could be end of March or April before its released, as we've had too many mandatories recently." -SEO_Account
"You can always buy 100K biblepay for each cloud VPS and shut down the ones you cant afford to buy the BBP for. Hybrid hashing should still be an option." -Rob
"Well the distinction is we would not want to recommend you buy 20 physical machines for BBP if you could stake a greater balance with that same sum (of capital) on less machines.
Its entirely up to you though, I think a machine with a 100K stake balance and 2000 HPS will do fine for a while, but it will get to a point where its cheaper to just put more BBP on less nodes as we get more popular.
You can see the relationship in the whitepaper here (see Target Hash Modification): http://wiki.biblepay.org/Proof_Of_Loyalty" -Rob
"It may be overly technical, but how would a shared wallet behave differently than a normal wallet? Wouldn't upon a successful use of the coin-age bonus, the coin age be reset to zero for all miners with that wallet, basically behaving like one wallet on one miner would?" -616westwarmoth
"No, its not recommended because it will get you ddossed, and if you only have one IP, then your whole house/farm is ddossed.
The n+ miners who are still latched on to the stake transaction they are trying to add risk thinking that they found a block (due to the increased weight) and will attempt to broadcast it. We dont want to hose our network up with bad practices and have everyones log showing stuff like that either." -Rob
"So I guess the question is if I'm running the same wallet on multiple machines, when I send a transaction from one, it is reflected in all of them. So why would the usage of the stake with a successful win be any different than with five machines on the same wallet or one machine on a singular wallet?" -616westwarmoth
"When your wallet searches for a proof-of-loyalty stake, both machines would be searching for the exact same oldest coins that meet the target of say a 10k stake. So both machines would be placing the transaction to spend the same coins in position #1. And here is one potential issue : At Hour X, enough coin-age was built up to make this 10K stake 50% influental on the block, meaning not much hashing needs done to solve it. You are running 10 machines. Machine A hashes it first and broadcasts the solution. Before the block is accepted as a new block on the network, machine B finds the solution at the same time, so it broadcasts the solution. Machine B would be sending a block with the same transaction spent.
That led me to believe B was a double spend, but thinking of that situation more, B's block would just be rejected as stale.
Sorry, I think you might be correct, this might be possible to do without a ddos. But remember, once the coin is spent- its spent network wide.
So yes, lets have someone test that in testnet also." -Rob
"i think POL will only make advantege to users with already rich bbp accounts. maybe it stops botnet litle bit, but it will increase distance between 'poor and rich' normal users.. i'm still thinking about how to use this if i have lots of miners (wallets), i dont want to send money to every computer, because this will be nightmare to administer soo many wallets. now i just create wallets by scripts and does not matter if i reinstall pc or what, because there are no money in wallets (when i'm using pool) how POL will affect pool shares? stakers vs non stakers?
i think for me it will be better to have many pcs without staking and mining in pool and one (where i'm withdrawing bbp from pool) powerfull pc for solo mining with staking" -capulo
"Thats sort of what I think is better about it. I thought about that, and as a Christian community, one that loves others, I believe POL aligns the wallet with Christians more than pure POW. Heres one reason I think so: The botnet formed because we basically leave a honeypot out in the yard, and tell everyone you can grab a jar of honey if you til the garden for X minutes. As soon as 1000 neighbors start tilling, they all walk away with 1/16 ounce of honey. I would argue that we will never see 900 of them again. If the "organization" or "botnet" came along their entire mentality is to take as much as possible and dump it on the exchange, but never to buy BBP to tithe to compassion.
Otoh, in POL, the ones who bought BBP on the market tithed to orphans (as technically they are funding our superblocks), they receive more of a reward with the benefit of the coin-age, and the chance to solo mine a block on a PC or a phone.
As far as the pool, Im coining the phrase for a brute force miner, one in "outer darkness", thats a miner with no coins at stake. I recommend stake-mining against the pool.
See the 'pool effect' section here: http://wiki.biblepay.org/Proof_Of_Loyalty
I believe that the pool will reward something like 10-20% of the block (calculations TBD) directly to one who staked a considerable amount in the pool mined block when the block is found. This is a BONUS for bringing Stakeweight to the pool... Read the Pool Effect section to understand why its better to squeeze out the botnet that way. That keeps the community separated from outer darkness." -Rob
"Otoh, in POL, the ones who bought BBP on the market tithed to orphans (as technically they are funding our superblocks), they receive more of a reward with the benefit of the coin-age, and the chance to solo mine a block on a PC or a phone." -Rob
"Please help me understand - when I read the PoL wiki, I thought coin age was the time period since coins have started to be staked or since they have been last moved? It doesn't matter when they were actually created, right?
Because if the coin age is the time period since the coins have been mined, then as you said, someone who buys coins from an exchange can get older coins, and therefore have better conditions to mine, and the botnet miners will always have the newest coins because they never buy from an exchange, they only mine and immediately sell. But then, obviously, a buyer on the exchange can also buy the new coins, and they probably even have a higher chance to buy the new coins because those miners also sell instantly or put sell orders at the top.
And if the coin age is the time period since the coins have been last moved, then I don't get the buying BBP on the exchange part, because when I withdraw the coins to my wallet, coin age will be reset to 0?" -inblue
"Thank you, I understand. I want to help on the testnet. Since I already have some tBBP you sent me some time ago, then all I need to do is download the 1.0.8.3, start my wallet with the -testnet flag and just let it sit there for 24 hrs? Is it OK if I don't mine?" -inblue
"Yes, download 1083 first, and the feature is created in a way where it is separate from Prod, but if you download latest and start with the -testnet flag, then ensure you are solo mining. Its not OK to not mine: the POL system still requires mining, but, if you wanted to be green you could now mine with one thread Cheesy if you want...
Lets post all that in the testnet thread though: http://forum.biblepay.org/index.php?topic=89.0" -Rob
"do i need gui for testing pol? or it will work also from cli?" -capulo
"It does work in both daemon and QT in testnet, but I have not finished the feature that lets you know your block was a POL clearly in the daemon in the rpc listtransactions command yet.
I guess you can get around that in the daemon by keeping a list of the block numbers you mine then do this: showblock blocknumber
If the block was a POL, it will have 5 additional fields on it.
In QT, the block is marked proof-of-loyalty in the transaction list." -Rob
"we start to receive first POL/POS coins after 24hours?" -slovakia
"In testnet, its about 24 hours after you received the coins, but its better if you understand each of the key factors in getmininginfo over there, post the questions about each of the keys there please." -Rob
"if i mine with a stake does that mean i could lose that balance? I would be concerned doing that with such a small balance (then i deffinetely wouldn't be able to do it with my entire balance). Does that balance need to go back through the pool and withdrawn or will it automatically re-appear as part of my balance at my address?" -crypto2017guy
"No, you only lose .01 bbp per block mined (the transaction fee). You always get it all back, and then it loses its coin-age.
It does not ever leave your machine, it goes from you to your address but it is recorded in a block." -Rob

[Player Interview - Rob] Thoughts on S8 of PL, Team 7, PL as a community and more!

Hello guys this is Alkantos, mid laner for team P4 Uranus, formerly known as De Ed Inside, formerly known as Mapogos, formerly known as Poro Blue gaming, formerly known as the best team in the league. This is the first of a series of interviews that I'm looking to do,the interview was a lot of fun to do, we went overboard with the questions and had to do few cuts here and there to not have it go forever, if you're interested to see the full interview there's gonna be a link down below1 . Enjoy the read!
Alkantos: Hello Rob (also known as Optic Waffles and xraygoggles), I've been part of this community for about 4 seasons and I've seen you in PL ever since I joined, but for the people that don't know you, would you like to give some introductory words about yourself, such as for how long you played in PL, rank, what you're known for and anything you seem fit.
Rob: Hello! I've played in PL for about 3 or so seasons if I remember correctly, as me and a few of my friends were looking for a semi-casual lcs style league to join that didn't have a buy-in. I feel as though I'm a very successful shot caller for my teams that I've been a part of, due to the game knowledge I've acquired from climbing the solo queue ladder to usually around master, but currently as of right now challenger. I'd say the thing I'm most known for in PL is my off-meta picks and wide champ pool as well as a little bit of banter every once in a while :)
A: I see, so you were always a crowd favorite between regular players and admins as well as caster, how did it feel to play again in PL when you got to sub in for I believe it was team Stoner Network vs Dynasty? Were you nervous and what was your mentality going into that series that you end up playing such a huge part for your team. Also, did you step back and let SN's shot caller dictate or did you end up having a bigger input due to your experience?
R: I was actually subbing in for God Squad Esports in their series versus Dynasty, as their mid laner couldn't show up and I was beginning to help the team as a coach. Coming back to PL was a great experience as my break from the league had made the games even more fun to win. Likewise, the games were streamed so hearing the casters calling out all the plays and getting all hyped up over my team and I's plays was great. One of the best feelings about PL is when the games are casted as I feel as though it builds a better sense of community and gets people more interested in the league. I was slightly nervous at the beginning of the first game because I hadn't played a game where people were watching and being critical of my play, but luckily we got me one of my comfort picks of ekko. I knew I would have to have a big impact for the team's success as Denlee (the mid I was subbing for if I remember correctly) was a big part of GSE's playstyle due to his carry oriented playstyle and him being the main shot caller. Since Denlee was missing I stepped up as the main shot caller because of his missing voice.
A: Talking about getting the community together, what do you think would be a way to get more people involved and caring for PL?
R: While keeping the league free to play which is a very key part of what PL is about, as stressed by the league owner xNyquill, I think the best ways to get more people involved would be to have more of the games streamed especially big series that might be between two top teams or playoff games especially. Likewise, I think a great addition to the league could be more community influenced events, such as all-star events at the end of a season of PL where the community votes in their favorite or best play for each role in both divisions. Then with these players have some sort of all-star weekend, similar to how riot has one, where there can be a 5v5 match of the all-stars and maybe a bracket of 1v1's too.
A: Agreed, to change the topic a bit, previously you were part of Team7, the team disbanded last season when the season had to be restarted, you guys were known for having an aggressive playstyle as well as seeming like close friends from the outside, unfortunately you guys never got a championship, however you guys were always in the top3 contenders, how was your time with that team and was it hard to break-up in the end?
R: Ah yes, Team 7. The team has had many iterations, the start of the team being around 4 years ago when the first league we did was HouseParty5v5. Eventually, I had finally been given the opportunity to play mid for the team, as previously I was the jungler and then top laner for the team. When I finally was able to play mid lane I feel it was when the team really gained its identity. The team was what has given me so much experience for shot calling and just league experience in general, as well as giving me some of the best friendships I've made from LoL. The time with the team was something I cherish as it's what has given me my love for a competitive league. The breakup at the end was a hard thing to do, but as some of us were just going to college, others were starting jobs, and some had lost a desire to play the game we felt it was what was best for all of us. We were all a very close group of friends which made the experience even more fun and gave us something most other teams didn't have which was just a natural synergy with each player on the team. My brother, and the adc for Team 7, Nixxay actually made an ending montage for the team, which if you are interested in viewing can be seen here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlY0ZO1tBXg
A: Now you're part of Gang7, a team formed of veterans of PL with people such as yourself Pie, W03, Sico and HitEmUpRob perhaps your biggest fanboy how do you think you guys are shaping up so far and what do you think are your chances at the championship this coming season?
R: As of right now we've been taking play-ins pretty jokingly, because we feel as most of the play-in teams aren't too good of competition. We are mostly using these games to get to know each other a bit better and just to learn each other's playstyles, but mostly just to have fun playing together. Once the regular season starts, assuming we make it into the league, we are going to begin playing games a lot more serious and I think it'll show a better, more scary side, of Gang7 than what is already being shown in play-ins. Our chances at the championship I'd say are the best in the league, due to the veteran status of most of our players and the skill we bring to the table. So as long as we all continue playing at the caliber we are now, while also growing throughout the season I'd imagine our championship chances are very high, although I do hope for some good competition from teams like P4 Uranus, Jet Black, and Ghost Fire.
A: Do you have any teams that you're looking forward to face that you think might cause you guys trouble as well as individual players, an example could be Prestige the top laner of Ghostfire was the highest ranked player in the league for the past season, or Jet Black, the team started the previous season with a very convincing roster but failed to maintain a stable roster by the end having subs even in the finals.
R: I think the two teams I'm looking forward to playing the most is Conqueror Red (if they make it, there chances are looking pretty slim) and P4 Uranus. Conqueror Red is a brand new team in play-ins currently that seem to struggle to understand the rules of the league, due to their captains attitude. Their captain BanjoKing, who is seemingly already making a name for himself in the league, seems to be quite the trash talker, which is something that allows makes me want to destroy a team and makes the games so much more fun. P4 Uranus, as you know as their mid laner, as had quite the history versus Team 7 as a smaller sort of rivalry in the league due to your player known as mechalara and mine's friendship. Also the infamous elvis is back in the league after running and hiding in the shadows after a horrific 3-0 defeat at the hands of Team 7 last time, and is already continuing his trend of typing which should lead to some fun games this season. Although these teams are the two I'm most interested in playing, facing off against some new teams like Ghost Fire and Jet Black who made big names for themselves in their first seasons in the league will also be fun as it increases the competition in the league even further.
A: Thank you for the interview Rob. Lastly, would you have any shout to give or anything else you'd like to add to sum up this interview?
R: You're Welcome, thanks for picking me for the interview. Just to sum everything up I'm looking forward to a great season 8 of PL and I hope the competition comes out ready to play, so we can make this season the best one PL has ever had. Lastly, I'd like to just give props to Nyquill for running a great league and server that has given many people a fun experience and will continue to for seasons to come, if he needs help with anything I hope he doesn't hesitate to ask as I want PL to be successful just like he does.

Jolt Gas - [JLG] Democratized EV Charging Network
Jolt is power sharing in a unique way. With over 540,000 Electric vehicles on the road and under 17k Charging stations, of which most are only located in heavily populated cities - the need for charging stations in between metropolitan areas is an ever increasing prevalent issue. Jolt intends to bridge the gap between distance, and electric vehicle power stations by curating a global network of individuals who will share electricity from their home or business and be paid in our ERC20 Token JLT by the customer. Additionally, partners in our network will be given a frequent payment in the form of Jolt Gas [JLG] as an incentive for remaining active on the network. Users will be able to locate and pay for Jolt Station usage via our Mobile App.
JLT is our ERC20 Token which will be used as a a payment between EV owners and the host of the Jolt station, each Jolt station will be able to dictate the amount of JLT they charge per use. This method will keep the network competitive, and offer a benefit to the those in need of charging their vehicles.
Jolt Gas [JLG] is the fuel that will power our network and is an essential aspect of the Jolt Network. Each host of a Jolt Station will receive a frequent payment in the form of JLG as an incentive to remain active on the Jolt Network. This payment will be issued from the pre-mine and will serve as a loyalty program. Jolt Gas is built on our own blockchain and will be maintained and stabilized by our Masternodes.
