Just to clear up some possible confusion -

Your block hash needs to be lower than the block target, not the latest block.

The first 12 characters of your hash, when converted to base 10, should be less than the number you get from the ?getwork call. For reference, the target started at 400,000,000,000 and has been decreasing gradually as more people started mining with external software. Originally, it was all done in-game. The target adjusts on occasion so that a block is found no faster than once per minute among all miners, keeping the distribution of Krist steady and predictable.

We've found 18,000 blocks together since February 14. You can calculate the current money supply by taking the latest block height (visible on the Latest blocks screen of KW5+), adding 1 (because there was a block 0) and multiplying by 50. That means that as of this post 900,450 KST has been mined. Almost a million :D

The server's location is prone to changing. You can fetch the current URL at any time by checking this API. Also, looks like I have some reputation points now! B)

Can you make it so that when you send a submit request to the server the server responds with either accept or reject based on whether that answer is correct (awards the submitter KST) or not?
If your block fails to meet the quota, the server returns the string it hashed to verify that your block is good enough. If your block is good, the server will say "Block solved" and add the block to the chain.

edit: if that's your best miner, someone should get to developing ;p

Don't worry, this address has already been blacklisted from KristWallet. :) Just make sure to delete the ransomware from the computer, or copy everything important out of it.
I can't blacklist addresses; only local wallets can prevent certain addresses from being used on them. You can set this in the config.

As a side-note to my method of obtaining block solutions, I suspect the nonces you select can actually be any string, not just base-10 numbers.
Any 12-or-fewer-character string should do. The reference miner used an incremental nonce for simplicity's sake. If you mine on multiple threads for one address you may want to add a short label to the nonce, so that work is not repeated.

no offense tho, krist isn't MUCH of a currency. because it's so mass mineable, the worth of one krist goes down immensely for how much krist some people have, i would request over 1million krist for a dirt block..
FWIW, I recently purchased five beacons on LuaLand for 550 KST. That and people are renting servers to mine on! ;)



Also, I just realized you people have been sending PMs. I just got back to you on those.

EDIT: Just tested it, eats way too much CPU, and at 2 threads I only have ~1.52 MH/s (the speed of 2 cores on GKM, but the CPU of 3 cores on GKM), and 2 threads on yours takes as much CPU as 3 cores on GKM. It looks like an OK miner, but for my specs it really doesn't work that well.

Expecting good hash rates without dedicating much processing power is kind of strange...

Okay, this has happened a few times in the last few minutes...

the block chain says I solved the block and yet I don't seem to get paid...

block 0000000bab6c... says I solved it... but I didn't get paid apparently...

so weird...


EDIT:

server bug?...

<b>Warning</b>:  SQLite3::query(): column address is not unique in <b>C:\xampp\htdocs\quest\dia\krist\index.php</b> on line <b>278</b><br />

I'm almost ready to release KWallet, which runs in Java. Expect source code up in at most half an hour and the first release shortly afterwards.

I've just released version 0.1.0 of KWallet - an external wallet for Krist. You can download it from here, or built it from source. It needs Java 7 or higher to run. It can currently:

- Generate and load your address from your password
- View recent transactions (max 200)
- Transfer Krist

Support for the economicon, double vault, and file storage are planned.

Don't forget to tip me if you like it and want to see it improved and updated!

Pretty good so far. Really glad to see someone making a wallet outside of the game. I don't know if this is just for me or not, but the UI seems a LITTLE bit derpy... but other than that, good work.

I'm not a pro at Java, but what problems were you having? I know it's not perfect cosmetically (and the economicon button doesn't clear the side panel) but other than that I haven't noticed anything.

Hmm, I can't reproduce that. It might be a problem with Linux. Are you using Open JDK? Are there any console errors?

I am using Oracle's JDK 8. I don't know if there are errors... since I didn't use the console to open it :P Will try with another jdk.

EDIT: happens on OpenJDK too... strange. Probably a bug in Swing.

Running sci's miner on a friend's dedi. :)

Edit: I'm not at my PC right now but I just looked at my balance and a rough calculation puts me at about 1 block solved per minute, or 18000 KST in the 5 hours I've been away from the PC. This is due to sci and me realizing that the current miners are incorrect and check the hashes against the last block instead of the number from getwork. I suspected that blocks would be solved faster but had no idea it would be THIS fast.

tl;dr If you have a miner you should probably fix it because it's broken. Also Yevano is rich now and is totally not letting the power go to his head.

Damn, those are the speeds I was getting on my PC with a modified version of the node.js miner (1 block a minute) before the difficulty spiked. I'm also running sci's miner now. 18 MH/s, damn....

Can you set sci's miner to use more than 2 threads? I have a quad core processor and now it's just derping at 50% :P
