Project Development / Re: [WANTED] GLD Paper Wallet Dev - Joint Project
« on: August 24, 2013, 05:12:58 PM »
Hopefully, you have found a way.

While working on the main client and android app development, we have found that the code for GoldCoin and Litecoin (and also Bitcoin) address generation differs by only one parameter.  It is referred to as the PUBKEY_ADDRESSBitcoin.Address.networkVersion or addressHeader.

For Litecoin, this number is 48 (or in hex, it is 30).  GoldCoin uses 32 (or in hex 20).  Bitcoin uses 0, which in hex is also 0.

Lastly is the PRIVKEY_ADDRESS, which is 128 + PUBKEY_ADDRESS.  GoldCoin uses 160 (or in hex, 0xa0).

Good luck.

Willing to contribute 50ltc to the person who gets this done. I know it's not much but it's what I can spare.

50LTC sounds like a lot to me.  Sounds like a great project to work on.

395
On the Balances area, on the left, towards the bottom, click on LTC:

Then you may need to scroll up to see this:

LiteCoin (LTC)
You don't have a LTC address yet.


Click on "Get One Now"  That will give you an LTC address to transfer to. 

At this time, Cryptsy has a better deal if you are trying to Buy GLD with LTC. 

CoinEx needs some sprucing up to make it a bit more user friendly.

I am also having trouble with CoinEx.  the main page loads, but does not respond to a "sign in" click.

We need to keep in mind that this site is still in beta.  Be careful.

Marketplace / Re: Daily Market Value Goldcoin to U.S.D
« on: August 21, 2013, 03:59:47 PM »
We shouldn't be discouraged that GLD has dropped below one cent.  The sudden price rise 0.006 was not a result of years of fundamentals at work, but rather a several buyers with thousands of Litecoins.  The price will stabilize like in other markets.

Also, I have heard that the Android app will tell you the price in dollars of GoldCoin.

Some help on mining is here:

https://www.gldtalk.org/index.php?topic=323.msg2068#msg2068

This is our mining guide, which will be updated to include more information.  Let us know if you have any other questions.

Mining & Pools / Re: Remove HTTP:// in Wallet
« on: August 20, 2013, 02:02:45 AM »
The red lettering is there for good reasons (regarding pool mining with the wallet).  First, the wallet (whether the current one or a future one) could be broken by putting the minerd program in the Program Files folder (due to replacing a key file with a newer version).  Secondly, it is bad practice to add or delete files from the program files folders according to Windows guidelines.  In Windows versions above Vista, only a user with administrator rights can add files to those folders.  The development team will look into updating this feature in future clients (including allowing for stratum, specifying a mining program in a different location).  The intention is to scare people away from using this approach, as I currently do not recommend it.

If you are using this feature, you can provide feedback as to how it is working for you: problems, benefits, etc.

Your other suggestions regarding upgrading will be included at a later time.  Thanks for your suggestions.

Also, 44 kH/s with a CPU is very good.

Mining & Pools / Re: Remove HTTP:// in Wallet
« on: August 20, 2013, 12:30:14 AM »
Here is the new mining topic.  https://www.gldtalk.org/index.php?topic=323.0

The GoldCoin wallet currently does not allow for pool mining with minerd (cpuminer) using the stratum protocol.  It seems to be because minerd expects a stratum+tcp:// to designate the stratum protocol, which as ipaint points out, the Wallet does not currently support.

Mining & Pools / Mining Guide
« on: August 19, 2013, 11:44:29 PM »
This mining guide will take you through the various ways of mining starting with the easiest methods.

Mining Hardware
1.  CPU
2.  Graphics Card(s) - These are faster than CPU's.  A mining computer can have more than one.  AMD Graphics cards are much faster than their nVidia counterparts.

Hardware that will not work includes any device that is made specifically for SHA-256 mining.  This include ASIC USB Block Eruptors and the offerings of Butterfly Labs and Avalon.

Mining Pools
Mining pools allow you to join your miner on your computer with other miners which allows for smaller, but more consistent payouts.  A list of mining pools is here:  https://www.gldtalk.org/index.php?topic=246.0.

Some methods require an account a mining that is configured with a worker.  Register at a GoldCoin Pool found at http://www.gldcoin.com/pools-and-nodes/.  Add a new worker under your new account at if there are not any workers setup.  The server and ports that are needed in later sections are typically found on a Getting Started page of the pool website.

Mining Methods:
1.  Wallet Mining (solo) - The easiest way to mine
2.  Wallet Mining (pool) - NOT RECOMMENDED
3.  CPU Mining (solo)
4.  CPU Mining (pool)
5.  GPU Mining (solo)
6.  GPU Mining (pool) - The most profitable way to mine
7.  CPU and GPU Mining (solo)
8.  CPU and GPU Mining (pool)

Wallet Mining (solo) - The easiest way to mine
Open your GoldCoin Wallet and click in the Mining tab.  Ensure that the Type is set to Solo Mining.  Press the Start Mining button.  This method is the slowest method and will be able to mine about 45 coins every 26 days based on the current size of the network.

Wallet Mining (pool) - NOT RECOMMENDED
This method is not guaranteed to work.  It requires that a required file is replaced with a newer version.  Use this method at your own risk.  The GoldCoin Wallet could crash at any time.  It may cause problems with uninstalling or upgrading the GoldCoin Client.

Download the latest version of cpuminer (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=55038.0) and extract the files to "C:\Program Files (x86)\GoldCoin (GLD)".  When asked about replacing pthreadGC2.dll, choose replace.  Open your GoldCoin Wallet and click in the Mining tab.  Ensure that the Type is set to Pool Mining.  In the GoldCoin Wallet, enter the server, port, your worker name and password.  The port should be one that is for GetWork or LongPoll (LP).  This method does not support stratum.  Press the Start Mining button.


CPU Mining (solo)
In this case, the GoldCoin wallet will need to be open and follow the instructions in this post:  https://www.gldtalk.org/index.php?topic=397.0.  Given the size of the GoldCoin network, it may take up to 2 days to mine 45 coins.

CPU Mining (pool)
See this topic on how to use ScryptMiner:  https://www.gldtalk.org/index.php?topic=361.0

GPU Mining (solo)
If you have an AMD video card, then see this topic:  https://www.gldtalk.org/index.php?topic=256.0 (mining with CGMiner).  This topic will work for nVidia cards also, but the cudaminer is faster than cgminer.

GPU Mining (pool)
You will need an account with a mining pool.  If you have an AMD video card, then see this topic:  https://www.gldtalk.org/index.php?topic=256.0 (mining with CGMiner).  This topic will work for nVidia cards also, but the cudaminer is faster than cgminer.

CPU and GPU Mining (solo)
The above cases can be combined to mine with both the CPU and GPU of your computer.

CPU and GPU Mining (pool)
The above cases can be combined to mine with both the CPU and GPU of your computer.  In that case you can keep track of how each mines separately on a pool by creating more than one worker.

Mining & Pools / Re: Remove HTTP:// in Wallet
« on: August 19, 2013, 05:22:00 PM »
I'm just thinking about the new person and trying to keep things simple and easy for them.

ipaint,

You have brought up some good points here about new users.  Certainly the in Wallet Miner is easier to use than any other command line miner, as it has a point-and-click way of doing it.  There is no need to worry about downloading other software, unzipping it, putting it somewhere, remembering where it was put, setting up conf/.bat/shortcut files, or running them.

Later on, I will start a mining guide, which will start with mining out of the wallet and going up from there.  I will do some wallet mining to test settings, stratum, getwork, etc with the pools.  Your input will be appreciated.

Mining with the wallet is very slow compared to the speed of cpuminer.

Try using "gld.cryptocoinmine.com:2020" only as the server.  Leave out the stratum+tcp.

if that doesn't work use:  "gld.cryptocoinmine.com:3333".  I am not sure if the client supports stratum or getwork.

Technical Discussion / Re: Network Hashrate Question?
« on: August 19, 2013, 03:26:19 PM »
My guess is that this will happen when the real time network hashrate spikes up.  The Network Hashrate as reported by the blockchain and other pools is based on a 4 hour average.  Therefore, it will have a lag.  The Pool Hashrate is probably based on a shorter time period.  If the hashrate of the pool is higher than the network, that means that a large amount hash power is being added.  Over time the 4 hour average Network hash rate will increase. 

Large changes in network hashrate are probably due to the difficulty changes and miners looking for the most profitable coins.

Trading Discussion / Re: Message from Headless
« on: August 18, 2013, 07:01:22 PM »
Yesterday was exciting.  My trading method is what I call "Trading the Spread" and 20 trades yielded an extra 2 LTC.  I put the buy order to puchase 1100GLD at 0.002 LTC and lo and behold, the price crashed to that level before rising to 0.005!
