The Break Room / Re: Hear the Roar of the Mighty Tadspoles!

Is the MEOW louder than the scratch!

The attached Zip file has two files.

The first (cryptsy.php) is a file that displays all the coins traded on Cryptsy and their associated average trading prices (based on the last 100 trades).  The second file (cryptsy_api.php) is the file that gets the information from crypsty.com and calculates the average price.

Depending on the day, 100 shares may not be 24 hours in total.  There is a way to get more that 100 trades, but that would require the private API.

http://stousenet.com/goldcoin/cryptsy.php - This will show all the average prices.

The crypty public api is at:  http://pubapi.cryptsy.com/api.php?method=marketdata

This will retrieve the market data for all the coins traded at Cryptsy (against BTC or LTC).

Besides including the last trade price and the volume for the past 24 hours, it contains the last 50 to 200 trades for each coin.  From that information a weighted average can be calculated over a given period of time.  Currently I am working on a php version and a java version of this code, which I can make available within 3 days.

The option in your command "-I 20" is to set Intensity to 20, which is very high for a scrypt coin.  Try using "-I 12"  This setting may be overloading your card and causing it to crash.

Code: [Select]
cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://gld.cryptocoinmine.com:2020 -u WORKER -p PASS -I 12

Mining & Pools / GoldCoin: How to Mine with a CPU
« on: August 30, 2013, 02:08:16 AM »
CPU mining requires CPU mining software.  This guide will focus on the best CPU mining software that exists. 

If you pay for your own electricity, this may not be a profitable way to mine. 

cpuminer Setup (Windows)
1. Download the latest cpuminer from the Bitcointalk thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=55038.0
2. Extract the zip folder (I prefer to use c:\bin)
3. Create a shortcut to minerd.exe, edit the properties of the shortcut and append to the target the required parameters mentioned below.

minerd Command Line Options:
The standard command line options are as follows.  This will connect minerd to a pool and start mining.
Code: [Select]
minerd -a scrypt -o [poolurl]:[port] -u [username].[workername] -p [password]
Example of Pool Mining:
Code: [Select]
minerd -a scrypt -o stratum+tcp://gld.cryptocoinmine.com:2020 -u Dayne.1 -p x -t 5
Example of Solo Mining (While Goldcoin Client is running):
Code: [Select]
minerd -a scrypt -o -u <gldcoin.conf user_name> -p <gldcoin.conf password>
Useful optional parameters to set are:
-t~The number of threads to use.

Example Setups

The Litecoin Mining Hardware Comparison (includes settings) - http://litecoin.info/Mining_Hardware_Comparison

The answer to this is no.  Any hardware that is built specifically for Bitcoin (ASIC, etc) will not work for GoldCoin or any other scrypt coin. 

500Kh/s for that card is very good.  I only get 350 Kh/s with my 7870.

Hashrates on scrypt coins such as GoldCoin are 1000 times slower than on SHA-256 coins such as Bitcoin.  Your card would get about 500 MH/s mining Bitcoin.

GoldCoin uses scrypt for its proof of work, unlike Bitcoin which uses SHA-256.  The Butterfly labs 5Gh/s device, along with other devices that are used to mine Bitcoins, will not work for scrypt coins.  Currently only a GPU or CPU hardware can be used to mine GoldCoin and other scrypt coins.

This would be an excellent tutorial to have.

This may be hard to implement unless there was a GoldCoin merchant services site that handled all the legwork (in a similar way as PayPal and Google Wallet).  In such a case a person could more easily add GoldCoin as a payment option without concerning himself with the GoldCoin Service running in the background all the time.

This is a stand alone package.  Everything you need in one zip file.  I modified this based on your previous request for a stratum enabled modification.

Here is a ScryptMiner package that contains the cpuminer (minerd) and works with stratum protocol.


Source code included.  Let me know if there are any problems.

http://www.cryptocoincharts.info will need to update their information.

Good work.  I can see it in the listings.
