Krist - Minable currency that works across...

3d6's Photo 3d6 28 Feb 2015

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.

Awesome :D
It's really cool to see a multiserver cryptocurrency for ComputerCraft.

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.
