/r/Monero - [QUESTION] Need help with Yam .cfg for pool mining.

[QUESTION] Need help with Yam .cfg for pool mining.

I'm not sure if this is appropriate for the sub but after hours of searching online I figured I try here. I'm currently doing some pool mining with my PC, and wanted to throw my girlfriends mac into the mix just to see what I could bump my hashrate to. Downloaded the correct microarchitecture Yam executable, downloaded the .cfg file that dwarfpool supplies, and placed the .cfg into the same directory as the executable. The config file is currently this:

threads = 0

mining-params = xmr:av=0&donation-interval=50

mine = stratum+tcp://my_wallet.3:x@erebor.dwarfpool.com:8005/xmr mine = stratum+tcp://my_wallet.3:x@moria.dwarfpool.com:8005/xmr

mine = stratum+tcp://EXCHANGE_WALLET.PERSONAL_PAYMENT_ID.12345:x@erebor.dwarfpool.com:8005:8050:8080:8100/xmr

mine = stratum+tcp://EXCHANGE_WALLET.PERSONAL_PAYMENT_ID.12345:x@moria.dwarfpool.com:8005:8050:8080:8100/xmr

compact-stats = 1 print-timestamps = 0

I've gotten the miner to run it seems, but connection to either the first or second (erebor or moria?) address it fails, no shares submitted, no shares accepted.

If anyone can offer any advice I'd really appreciate it.

Please and thanks!

Solo Mining Luck?

How much luck do you think I will have to mine a block, I'm using the wallet at about on average 222 h/s. Wish me luck!

Monero Wallet Stuck at Sync Block 25331

Hello,

So I downloaded the Monero Wallet the other day for Mac on the GetMonero website....I have been letting my wallet sync for the past 2 days or so and things would go smooth ish but now Im stuck on block 25331 it hasnt moved for about 4 hours now. Is this because the latest update with the fork?

What do I do step by step to make this fully sync?

I sent a small amount of coins to the wallet address for long term investment and I cant get access to them until the wallet fully syncs and now its stuck. What do I do

Thanks!

/r/Monero - Monero is secure and private. So what?

Monero is secure and private. So what?

There are plenty of reasons why criminals would want to use Monero. But I was wondering today, why would non-criminals want to use it?

Before you say, "because it's private!" I'd counter that with, "is privacy really a sufficient selling point?" Is privacy really something that a majority of people really want?

Think about the purchases I've made in the past week. Gas for the car. Breakfast. Groceries. Big deal! None of that stuff is private. I don't care who knows I made those purchases.

Monero feels like a solution waiting for a problem. What's the practical application of a totally secure and private payment method?

/r/Monero - [QUESTION] Why hide transaction amount?
« Reply #214 on: September 14, 2017, 06:31:55 AM »
[QUESTION] Why hide transaction amount?

First of all, let me say I'm really charmed by the methods Monero uses to hide the privacy of users. If I have this right, it hides:

  • Who sends who (by using stealth addresses)
  • The transaction amount (RingCT)
  • In a future release: IP addresses

At what cost (for example in terms of transaction size) are transaction amounts hidden? I ask this because when we have IP addresses also hidden, then you would say that nobody cares how much is being sent from completely hidden senders and receivers, right?

So why is the following not good enough and do you have good reasons to hide amounts?

***** sends [some amount] to ****** 

How much more efficient can Monero be if amounts are visible?

Opening old simplewallet file

So, I have a simplewallet file from 2014. How can I go about opening this wallet for use on Mac OS X? I've downloaded the new wallet GUI, but I don't see a way to import or open a wallet. It just seems to support a single wallet.

As a Gold & Silver investor i am seriously looking into Monero. Anything i should know/do as a novice.

I see a lot of really good advantages that i haven't seen in other major alt like bitcoin/litecoin/etherium etc.

Any advice or good points of knowledge i should know about the tech or the space before getting in.

*For full disclaimer; i have only owned a few various crypto's in the past but didn't pay enough attention and ultimately lost all of them through various exchange meltdowns (namely MtGox & Bter)

JS dev here, what steps would I have to take in order to integrate Monero into a light (mobile) wallet app?

I know that teams have created plugins in order to connect their mobile wallets (react-native) to specific currencies. I believe bCoin is sometimes used for Bitcoin. Can someone give me a rough idea of what the steps that would need to be taken to begin this process? Also, what dev skills will be most critical (eg async operations, or being able to read languages other than Javscript?) . Any help would be appreciated!

/r/Monero - Low CPU hashrate - can't figure out why!

Low CPU hashrate - can't figure out why!

Hey guys,

Been GPU + CPU mining with nicehash for a few months as well as running my AMD GPUs mining eth directly elsewhere.

Recently I upgraded my PC; got a 1080Ti and an i7-7700k. I've seen on the profitability calculator and elsewhere on benchmark tables that the i7-7700k (at around 4.7GHz is capable of 360 H/s for cryptonight (using XMR-Stak-CPU).

However, mine is overclocked to 5GHz core and 4.8GHz cache and I can never get it above ~280H/s...

I've tried everything I could think of. Read and tried all the tips here but no luck at all. https://github.com/nicehash/NiceHashMiner/wiki/Notes-and-hints-on-CPU-mining

Have even tried other cpu-miner programs externally without nicehash - all with similar results. I'm stumped!

Would really appreciate some help with this.

Thanks

/r/Monero - CLI can't open wallet made in GUI

CLI can't open wallet made in GUI

I created a new wallet in the GUI. Made a transaction. After a few hours, I exited it. Tried to load it int the CLI: torsocks ./monero-wallet-cli --wallet-file /path/to/wallet --daemon-address some.remote.node --log-level 4 After the help line, it just exits. Still loads fine in the GUI (torsocks ./start-gui.sh). Here's the log:

/r/Monero - Monero websites - thoughts and improvements

Monero websites - thoughts and improvements

One of the challenging aspects for any decentralized cryptocurrency is the lack of an official channel (website, spokesperson...), which makes it difficult to reach the public and educate them well. Similarly, it is difficult for the public to gain decent and reliable information about the cryptocurrency from a source among hundreds, some of which are better than others.

Being one of the truly decetralized cryptocurrencies, Monero of course does not have an official website, but getmonero.org comes pretty close to that.

I have a few comments regarding getmonero.org and tips for all pro-Monero sites in general:

I would firstly say that the getmonero.org looks plesantly simple and uncluttered, which is obviously positive. I hope it stays that way too when the upcoming website redesign is completed. The site is also relatively friendly for Monero beginners because it provides a good documentation how to get started with the new cryptocurrency. Hopefully other Monero stakeholders would contribute more to the common good. To be more specific, I am eagerly waiting more exchanges to start adopting Monero and hardware wallets coming to online stores.

Regarding the potential ideas for the site, I think there are two main elements that could be improved: relevant information for the "smart money" community and the effectiveness of the presented information from the marketing perspective.

Large investors, such as institutions, hedge funds, venture capitalists and other professional investors are typically bound by strict rules and requirements, which limit the potential asset classes they can invest in. The less (readily available) information there is about the specific asset, the less likely it is that the money flows in. In this sense, I have yet to find a single website out there that collectively presents all relevant technical and financial information about Monero in a scientific manner, or at least in a professional and business-like way.

For instance, key features and specifications, white papers, peer-to-peer papers, protocol documentation, details of the emission curve (this is extremely relevant, because it specifies the current and upcoming money supply in an explicit way) in a single place and certainly not offsite, like in Reddit, or in any other forum for that matter. I know some of this information is already available in getmonero.org, but I would urge to focus on its presentation and the professionalism. This would greatly improve the authentic image readers will perceive when they look at the available information of Monero, further improving its strong reliable image. This brings us to the second point.

There are hundreds of cryptocurrencies out there, but I honestly believe Monero has the highest potential for the future. The main reasons are its open, transparent and committed community (both developers and users), and the impartial and equal manner in which Monero was founded. This alone separates Monero from the vast majority of premined ICO cryptocurrencies out there, most of which have no real community behind them except the get-rich-quick people. This is not sustainable in the long term for them. Secondly and equally importantly, the anonymous features of Monero are vastly superior to others even this day.

I think most pro-Monero websites should focus even more on the message why Monero is a superior cryptocurrency, what makes it better than the other cryptocurrencies and why should the hedge fund manager, private investor or average Joe invest in it. Websites, such as getmonero.org do a decent job, but I think the WHY-message should be even more directly addressed and more visible. This is not to urge to aggressively dismiss the competition or overly hype Monero's features, but rather professionally and directly address WHY Monero is unlike all other others. WHY is Monero better than other cryptocurrencies from security, privacy, untracability, fungibility, et al. perspective? WHY should the investor invest his or her money in Monero rather than in some other cryptocurrency?

The influencing message should be direct and readily available on the front page, or at least somewhere where the reader is likely to find it. Not in some random page that is accessed from the bottom link of the third page.

At a quick glance, some valuable information that is not conveyed competently in most Monero sites:

Many cryptocurrencies are premined/instamined or their founders get a portion of all block rewards. This creates conflicts of interest and puts some stakeholders in an unequal position, favoring others. Monero is unbiased, because it was not premined and all block rewards go to miners instead of the creators of the protocol.

Monero is truly a decentralized cryptocurrency, and not controlled by a single corporation or any other centralized entity. This separates it from many other cryptocurrencies, like Zcash, which is exposed to the changing political-legal environment and it must always succumb to that pressure, creating enormous risks for its investors.

The vibrant Monero community is strong because of the aligned goals between users, developers and miners. The same cannot be said of Bitcoin, or even Ethereum. So far the community is growing rapidly, and it is only matched by Bitcoin and Ethereum communities.

I am posting this because I believe privacy is a fundamental right and I want Monero to succeed. I would gladly hear similar ideas from others. Please share if you have any feedback on how to improve the Monero message.

/r/Monero - Extremely slow sync of GUI

Extremely slow sync of GUI

Hi guys, I'm pretty new to Monero, but have been trying to get the GUI running in Windows. I currently have it set to run locally, but the synchronisation process is literally taking days. It got pretty quickly within 15,000 blocks of sync and then slowed to a crawl. I know the last blocks to download are larger, but this is taking crazy long (I've been running it for 4 days now). Am I doing something wrong??? Thanks

/r/Monero - Question: Is there any way to see number of confirmations in GUI?

Question: Is there any way to see number of confirmations in GUI?

Just a question - in the previous version of the GUI, a transaction would appear initially as UNCONFIRMED, and then 1/10, 2/10 etc. as confirmations occurred. I just picked up a few XMR and my transaction went from UNCONFIRMED to just appearing as complete.

I'm using the Linux 64-bit build.
