Krist

Krist is a currency that operates across servers (and in singleplayer). The installer is on the bottom of this post.

Users can send KST to eachother via Krist Addresses, a ten character string that is led by a lowercase k. This is an example of a Krist Address: kg5dc1lzo0

To put KST into circulation, it has to be mined. This involves lots of work done by computers, and means that I can't just "spawn in" as much KST as I want. I have to mine it like everyone else.
Initially, KST was mined by in-game computers, but now requires external software.

Wallet installer:
pastebin get CChWjRx6 kristwallet

Please post your questions, feedback, insight and Krist Addresses!

This is awesome. It needs promotion! :D Soon, perhaps, we'll have the miner serve as a Krist client. That way, users won't need to use ComputerCraft to make use of Krist.

I think that you should consider a web version possibly. it would spread the usage plus you could have stats and such.

(If your looking for a front end developer, *hint* I'm available *hint*)

Really nice how local storing of Krist is, you can't copy the file to dupe Krist.

That's the old hex format! If you update kristwallet, it should be converted into the new, more secure version. ^_^

Very cool!

One question, though: how decentralized is the currency? For example, can a server host its own "blockchain" and then federate with your server for transactions?

Also, what's the mining payout falloff? Can an "admin" give himself money? What kind of a hash is it?

The whole system is based off hashing and cryptography, I believe, therefore an admin can't give themselves Krist.

Just wondering, what is considered to be a good hash rate?

My hashrate is around 1.1 million but even when I select 4 cores it only uses 27% on each core (I've set the priority to realtime)

The password is essentially the username. That is a big security flaw.

Interesting, I got ~3.3 million with 4 cores, not sure if they were all pushing hard although.
