How exactly do I get started with Krist? Do I just make my own address and start mining?
Yup, just download and run a wallet and put in the password you want. Then start a miner with that address.

I'm also running sci's miner now. 18 MH/s, damn....

Where can I download sci's miner?

I just made a C++ and Objective-C Miner that produces 1,500,000 hashes per second on 2 cores and CPU speed of 60%. I will be at the top soon :P

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....

HOLY ****... what hardware is that running on?!? That's REALLY good!

Also, I am going to rewrite my miner soon... should be able to improve the code a lot.

I am also thinking of writing an Android wallet/miner combo.

Running Windows 8 i5 Core Processor with Dual-Core. 8GB of RAM. Might upgrade to i7 if i can. And maybe Quad-Core.

How can you be getting 18 MH/s on that system? I have an i7-4770 with 16 GB of ram and the highest speed I have EVER seen is 6.17. wtft... maybe the measurement is wrong? idk... strange...

On all these miners which do speed calculations I've noticed that the measurements can be incorrect and erratic. IMO the way to get the most accurate measurement is to just start a timer and let the program run for a few hundred million hashes, then divide the number of hashes by the time it took.

Okay, just wanna point out: erratic != inaccurate. It is accurate for the hash rate at the current time.
The newer version of my program has that as well as an average which is less erratic...

but these values aren't inaccurate... they're correct...

AMD Fx-6300 (6 cores) over locked to 4.5GHz. Unfortunately I seem to be using last night's broken version and haven't gotten any blocks, I'll recompile it when I get home in an hour or so. Either that or it crashed.

18 MH/s was the highest I saw before leaving for school, average was about 10 MH/s. Also note that unless you have REALLY good cooling running this miner with this big of an overclock (3.5 to 4.5) will melt your computer.

I'm all for an Android wallet (I'll help if you start on it) but I doubt an Android miner would be very useful at the time. Few android devices can compare to computers when it comes to performance and it would drain battery VERY fast having the CPU locked at max.

Wow...

gonna point out: the latest code on my github is kind of ... broke... it mines correctly but I did a bunch of stuff to get it fixed RIGHT before I left for school... so it's not good code.

I am going to rewrite it when I get home which will be in ~30 minutes.

Yeah, an android miner would just be for fun to be honest. The reason? I have an extra phone that doesn't get used :P

but yeah.

Difficulty adjustment isn't working right now, and I know it's an easy fix but TeamViewer stopped working on me. This could be bad. :(

If I'm really nice, I might do:

1. Make a currency exchange between RBP (RetroBank Pounds) and KST. What should the conversion rates be?

2. Release my Krist Miner. I counted it correctly, and it now adds up to 1,800,000 hashes per second. It all adds up too.

EDIT: I left my krist account open and somebody took all my 16000 krist.

I've got to say: Oh. My. Gosh.
How much CPU and cores were used?

Well, it's a VPS... but it has 32 vCPU and 60 GB of RAM (I allocate 32).

The CPU is 2x Intel Xeon E5-2680 @ 2.8 GHz. 8 cores per socket, 2 threads per core, 2 sockets.


This has actually been pretty helpful for me to find bugs with my code since it allows so much more concurrency and whatnot... really good stuffs. :)

I'm writing an online wallet using PHP, it's pretty secure, stores nothing locally.

No I mean, nothing is stored locally like the Krist wallet, it just sends requests to the Krist wallet.
