The Dymaxion is coming.
You can try to leave, but will you escape The Dymaxion? It may be too late for that.
@rds Would you say it's somewhere between shenanigans and skullduggery?
As far as I can tell (so it may not be 100% correct/I might be doing something wrong), CreepMiner does not recognise my PoC2 plots.
Turbo Plotter only plots to PoC2 format if you have set "use_poc2_format: true" in its config.yml file. Its default behaviour is to plot to the PoC1 standard.
I have one plot created with Turbo Plotter, and one converted with the poc1topoc2 script - neither are recognised at the moment by CreepMiner. I updated it to the latest version today to make sure.
You can tell if it's PoC1 or PoC2 by the filename - version 1 has [burst id]_[starting nonce]_[num of nonces]_[stagger size], while version 2 does not have the final 'stagger size' number (so it is represented as [burst id]_[starting nonce]_[num of nonces])
You've already named your account; I've sent you another one so you can join a pool. Make sure to do your research and join one that suits your plot size.
As you said, it doesn't really matter a great deal if you had overlapped, but I don't think you have.
Your first plot is (eg) starting at 0 and plotting 100, so it's actually plotting nonces 0 to 99 rather than 1 to 100. So the next one's starting point should be 100.
I think most mining software warns you on startup if you're overlapping anyway, doesn't it?
Actually, looking back through my bash history, I didn't run install-poco.sh for this version.
I did the following:
apt-get install python
apt-get install python-pip
pip install conan
pip install --upgrade pip
conan install . --build=missing -s compiler.libcxx=libstdc++11
Some of that may be irrelevant or need changing for your operating system though.
Creepminer is really good in my experience - I haven't used any other miners on Linux but it seems to do the job for me! You just need to get the 'intensity' and 'maxPlotReaders' parameters right to optimise your read times - they should add up to the number of available threads on your CPU.
Bloody hell, @Jaxblack got there before me, but I've been trying to post this for 20 minutes so here it comes anyway.
Looks like pool.burstcoin.space gives 60% of the block payment to the winner of the block, and 40% is shared out between the miners based on historic performance.
This gives block winners a bonus, but if you're not likely to win a lot of blocks, you might find payouts to be disappointing.
I prefer to mine on 0/100 pools, where the actual block winner gets nothing, but everyone who's trying their damn best gets compensated based on historical work.
I'm on the latter; at the moment I've got 44TB and I'm getting around 100 burst a day - obviously you've got to commit to the pool for a while to build up your average percentage before the payouts get to that level.
You need to decide what sort of miner you are. Do you want a massive jolt of happiness when you win a block, say once a month (if that), but tiny dribbles of disappointment the rest of the time (60/40)? Or do you want a warm blanket of comfort for most of your mining life, punctuated with bitter pangs of regret and self-loathing when you do win a block and you're not fully rewarded for it (0/100)?
