EDIT 2017-02-10: A word about Nodes

There is a discussion about nodes that came up today, where it seems I'm discouraging people from running the full QT/Core client. Yes and No. What I'm trying to make sure people understand is how things work, and that it is NOT mandatory to run a client in order to use Dogecoins (and yes, I realise that browser-based tools like coinb.in and wallet sweepers are 'clients' by strict definition).
That said, more nodes is absolutely a good thing for the network. Preferrably full nodes. How do you run a full node? Just run Core/QT and open up Port 22556 on your router so it can connect to more than 8 peers. What will it cost you? You need your machine to be on 24/7/365, you need enough storage for the full blockchain (currently about 20Gb. Bitcoin is over 120Gb) and enough bandwidth to keep it in sync and share blocks with peers. A couple of Gb a month, most likely. This is best done with a desktop on a wired broadband link. Or maybe a hosted VM in the cloud. :)

EDIT 2017-01-09: Wallets WITHOUT Clients

Since I started helping people on /BitcoinBeginners, I'm getting a lot of questions about how to use wallets without running clients or trusting third parties. So here are a couple of resources that will make that possible, and not just for Dogecoin:
Multi-Coin Wallet Generator Now supporting 129 currencies! Coinb.in Start by setting the currency, found in the gear wheel in the Broadcast tab. Dogecoin Wallet Sweeper Redeem 'paper' wallets containing up to about 100 UTXOs. Bitinfo Charts My favourite block explorer, handles a bunch of cryptos.
Using these resources, it is possible to hold, receive and spend coins in various currencies, without having to run QT or a 'lite' client. You can also download and run the pages on your own device.

EDIT 2016-11-23: SEMANTICS about MINING! :P

Even though there is already a section on mining below, it has been suggested given the huge number of posts on the subject that this needs to be made clearer. Since people get their panties in a twist over the word 'dead', lets change that...

MINING IS DEAD!

MINING DOGECOIN IS UNPROFITABLE!

Put simply, there is no way to mine Dogecoin and make a profit because of the massive hashpower provided by industrial-scale Litecoin miners. Mining Doge directly stopped being viable when our hashrate exploded with the introduction of AuxPoW. Mining with CPU's and GPU's died when ASICs were introduced. And mining with a laptop WILL kill your laptop and cost you a fortune to repair or replace. Mining Litecoin with an exchange that also mines Doge and others will earn less than the electricity consumed, and you won't recover your costs. Probably ever, but certainly not in any reasonable time.
Mining other currencies may be a thing, but that's beyond our scope here. This is /Dogecoin, not /GetRichMiningCryptos after all. If you want to mine the newest scamcoin for fun and profit, look elsewhere for advice. :/
Oh, and most important:

READ BEFORE YOU POST!

At any given time, there are half a dozen posts on the frontpage just like the one you're about to write, where the answers have already been given. Read them. Don't make people waste their time repeating themselves because you were too lazy to bother reading stuff. :P
So there I was, having a quiet Sundy arvo bludge, as you do, when 42points turned up on Facebook and asked me to write a new sticky post for /dogecoin. Why would he do this, when he should be having a bludge himself, I hear you ask? Well, seems he was doing exactly that, and wanted to fob off the work he’s too slack to do himself. ;) Ah well, being a sucker for punishment, I’ll grudgingly oblige I guess.
OK, first things first.

EDITS:

From peoplma
I was wondering if you could add just a couple things. A link to the coinomi android wallet, it's probably the best one out there. And a sentence somewhere along the lines of "if you need help with any dogecoin software you are welcome to make a post, but PLEASE include your OS, version number of the client, and any relevant transaction IDs that you are willing to share" if you can fit that in somewhere.
Also, if you want to link to Prohashing, I'm pretty sure it's the only Scrypt mining pool that will actually pay out in doge. The others I know of pay out in litecoin or bitcoin. And it's a profit switching multipool, so gives a better return than just mining ltc/doge.
And there's these two wiki articles I thought would be helpful to link /dogecoin/wiki/technical for those technically minded newbies or intermediate users who want to dig a little deeper. And maybe a link to /dogecoin/wiki/dogecoincoreguide next to the link for dogecoin core.
From pts2002
Finally a proper sticky post! Here's some other stuff you could add:
zpool.ca mining pool - You can get paid in pretty much any coin, and you can mine in multiple algos (currently mining lyra2v2 with my GPU). Doing about 500Ð/day
shapeshift.io exchange - My favourite exchange, quick and easy. No registration required!
Also, you should add some blockchain explorers!
chain.so - Support for bitcoin, litecoin and doge.
dogechain.info - Official blockchain explorer. Includes a wallet (already mentioned). Live update currently not working (?)
EDIT: Here's another thing I found!
preev.com currency value calculator - Easy way to check the value of your dogecoins (or bitcoins, or litecoins, or peercoins)!

The Evolution and Natural Selection of Exchanges Points to 5 Key Features - Decentralization, Privacy, Interface, Governance, Liquidity - Resistance DEX

The Evolution and Natural Selection of Exchanges Points to 5 Key Features - Decentralization, Privacy, Interface, Governance, Liquidity - Resistance DEX
Decentralization - Increases Security and Accessibility + Throughput (dependent on model)
Privacy - Promotes Autonomy against Central Forces, Freedom, and Liberty in market participation
Interface - Usability from UI/UX Standpoint
Governance - Security, Market Fairness, Community and Platform Evolution
Liquidity - Volume. None of the above will help without liquidity
Though these are just a number of characteristics that i find critical for exchanges to evolve as we're coming to an age of tighter regulation and the increasing risks apparent in centralized exchanges. This is a purely opinionated piece which i'd like to pair with the recent article released by Resistance on it's Overview.

The Resistance Decentralized Exchange

ResDEX uses the Resistance privacy coin as an intermediary in private trades and implements many additional technologies, including Tor support, instant swaps, an extremely user-friendly graphical interface, and more.
https://preview.redd.it/vkkz3tq1hig21.png?width=1000&format=png&auto=webp&s=7a96256638a895a2db79c9ac7cca03f46594bcff

Liquidity Solved

ResDEX has dedicated market makers who ensure liquidity stays high on the exchange and users can perform trades quickly at competitive prices (Huobi & XRP). Anyone can become a market maker on ResDEX and provide liquidity to the market. As an added bonus, makers don’t pay fees on ResDEX. The ResDEX exchange fee (0.15%) is paid by the taker and used to support the platform, fund market making, and donate to privacy projects voted for by the community.
https://i.redd.it/cksyv4qchig21.gif

Add Privacy Features to Any Coin

As an added feature, users can add privacy to almost any cryptocurrency, including Bitcoin, even if that currency doesn’t support private transactions natively. By harnessing the power of the Resistance privacy-oriented blockchain, ResDEX will automatically trade the coin of your choice to RES and send RES in place of the original currency, thereby adding privacy to the trade.
Users can also utilize the same trading mechanism to add privacy to a non-private cryptocurrency by automatically trading to RES and then trading back to the original cryptocurrency.
https://i.redd.it/7b1n4h5zhig21.gif

Utilizing ZK Snarks

Bitcoin is not fungible because it does not provide users with sufficient privacy and anonymity. The transaction history of every Bitcoin is publicly available for anyone to scrutinize. Centralized exchanges like Coinbase, for example, will in some cases block funds based on your coins’ past transactions.
With zk-SNARKs, a form of zero-knowledge proof used to facilitate private transactions on the Resistance blockchain, it’s possible for RES to have no public record or history. If users choose to send a coin through a private transaction, its history is essentially erased.
https://i.redd.it/w9c0w1e4iig21.gif

Democratized Mining (Introducing yespower)

Just like Bitcoin and Litecoin, the Resistance blockchain itself is built upon a fast cryptographic hash for performance. Resistance also utilizes yespower as a separate Proof of Work hash, in the same way that Litecoin uses scrypt. Specifically designed for CPU mining, yespower is a hashing algorithm based on scrypt and the newer yescrypt.
It favors the standard CPUs you’ll find in regular laptop and desktop computers and offers no benefit to FPGAs or ASICs. This means anyone can mine on the Resistance blockchain without the high-spec mining rigs that are required to mine Bitcoin, Ethereum, and many other cryptocurrencies.

More on Privacy - TOR Routing - Supporting the Community

Note that everyone can choose to use onion routing through the TOR NETWORK to hide their ip when making transactions. This really reinforces their whole privacy aspect of the exchange.
It was also announced on their Telegram that they are going to run a program where the COMMUNITY VOTES FOR ONE PRIVACY COMMUNITY TO BE ALLOCATED 15% of ALL EXCHANGE FEES TO BE SUPPORTED.
At times like these, especially in a bear market, I hope to see more collaboration among projects because we are nothing but islands upon islands of dispersed communities that would gain more working in sync.
Resistance is a project i'm curious to see challenge the status quo, along with Binance DEX as CZ also claims that DEX's are the future. Will the traditional Centralized Exchanges die out? I don't think so. But I'd rather opt for a decentralized solution.

Dogecoin on Linux - The Complete Beginner's Guide

I'm writing this because I couldn't find a single condensed guide on compiling the wallet and running mining software on linux, specficially Ubuntu/Linux Mint. I combed Bitcoin and Litecoin forums for similar problems I was running into and eventually got everything nailed down, so here it is in one place, for new Shibes.
If you want to make a Dogecoin directory in your downloads folder to keep things organized, you will need to modify these commands to refelct the change. So instead of going to ~/Downloads/ you will need to go to ~/Downloads/Dogecoin and be sure to put the zipped files there when you download them, but the commands will be the same otherwise.
cwayne18 put in the work to make a PPA for the QT client here.
Ubunutu/Mint/Debian users should be able to install the client with the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cwayne18/doge sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install dogecoin-qt 
To update using this method, run
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade dogecoin-qt 
Compiling the Wallet Manually
I suggest using the PPA above, but if you want to compile manually, here you go.
1)Download the newest source from here. If you want to check out the Github page, click here
2)Unzip the package with the native client OR, navigate to your downloads and unzip
cd ~/Downloads unzip dogecoin-master.zip 
3)Now it's time to compile. You will need to install the dependencies, just copy and paste the following code. It will be a fairly large download and could take some time. It is always important to update before installing any new software, so we'll do that first and then install the dependencies.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install libssl-dev libdb-dev libdb++-dev libqrencode-dev qt4-qmake libqtgui4 libqt4-dev sudo apt-get install libminiupnpc-dev libminiupnpc8 libboost-all-dev build-essential git libboost1.53-all-dev 
4)Once that is done, go to the doge-coin master directory and compile:
cd ~/Downloads/dogecoin-maste sed -i 's/-mgw46-mt-sd-1_53//g' dogecoin-qt.pro qmake USE_UPNP=- USE_QRCODE=0 USE_IPV6=0 make -j3 
After running the qmake command you will likely see some text similar to
Project MESSAGE: Building without UPNP support Project MESSAGE: Building with UPNP supportRemoved plural forms as the target language has less forms. If this sounds wrong, possibly the target language is not set or recognized. 
It's perfectly normal, so don't worry about that.
Your Dogewallet is ready to go! The executable is in ~/Downloads/dogecoin-maste and called dogecoin-qt. Your wallet information is in ~/.dogecoin. You can run the wallet at any time by opening terminal and typing
cd ~/Downloads/dogecoin-maste ./dogecoin-qt 
Future upgrades to dogewallet are easy. Back up your wallet.dat, and simply follow the same directions above, but you'll be unzipping and building the newer version. You will likely need to rename the old dogecoin-master directory in ~/Downloads before unzipping the newest version and building. Also, it is likely that you will not need to install the dependencies again.
Alternate Method For Installing Dogecoin Wallet from Nicebreakfast
After installing the dependencies listed in step 3, open terminal, then navigate to where you want Dogecoin Wallet stored and run:
git clone https://github.com/dogecoin/dogecoin ./autogen.sh ./configure make 
then when the wallet is updated just run
git pull 
from the dogecoin directory.
GPU Mining
GPU mining requires CGminer. My suggestion is to get the executable already built. The creator of cgminer has removed the built file from his website, but I've uploaded it here
sudo apt-get install pkg-config opencl-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev autoconf libtool automake m4 ncurses-dev cd ~/Downloads tar -xvf cgminer-3.7.2-x86_64-built.tar.bz2 
Don't use anything newer than 3.7.2. The newer versions of CGMiner don't support GPU mining.
That's it! You have cgminer ready to go! You will run cgminer with the following syntax
cd ~/Downloads/cgminer-3.7.2-x86_64-built/ ./cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://SERVERNAME:PORT -u WORKER.ID -p PASS 
A good guide for fine tuning cgminer can be found here; follow the litecoin example.
EDIT
I had trouble getting cgminer running with a single line command, but running it via an executable .sh file works. This is covered in the cgminer setup guide I posted above but I'll put it here too. In the same directory that has the cgminer executable, you need to make a file called cgminer.sh and make it executable. It should contain the follwing:
export GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1 export GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100 export DISPLAY=:0 find *.bin -delete sleep 5 ./cgminer 
Then you can call cgminer in terminal by doing ./cgminer.sh You will need a cgminer.conf file containing all your options. All of this is covered in the guide that is linked above.
A quick note about AMD drivers: They used to be a huge PITA to install and get working, but the newest Catalyst drivers are great. There's a GUI installer, everything works out of the box, and there is a lot of documentation. You can download them here: AMD Catalyst 14.6 Beta Linux
CPU Mining
For CPU mining I use minerd because it doesn't require any work to get running, simply download it and get to work. Download the built file for your machine 32-bit or 64-bit, and then unzip it and you're ready to go!
cd ~/Downloads tar -xvf pooler-cpuminer-2.3.2-linux-x86.tar.gz 
The executable is called minerd and it will be in ~/Downloads but you can move it to wherever you like. To run it, pull up terminal and do
cd ~/Downloads minerd --url=stratum+tcp://SERVER:PORT --userpass=USERNAME.WORKERNAME:WORKERPASSWORD 
You're done! Happy mining!
Common Issues
I ran into this and I've seen others with this problem as well. Everything installs fine but there is a shared library file that isn't where it should be. In fact, it isn't there at all.
 libudev.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory 
In terminal, do
sudo updatedb locate libudev.so.0.13.0 
And it will probably return a path /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu. Inside that directory there's a library file called libudev.so.0.13.0. You'll need to make a symlink (aka shortcut) that links libudev.so.1 to libudev.so.0.13.0 So, assuming you're working with libudev.so.0.13.0 do this
cd /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu sudo ln -s libudev.so.0.13.0 libudev.so.1 
Now if you do
ln -l 
You should see
libudev.so.1 -> ./libudev.so.0.13.0 
Meaning you've made the symlink. Also, the text for libudev.so.1 will be blue.

About Dorfcoin

Let's get the technicals out of the way:
Name- Dorfcoin
Symbol- DORF
Algorithm- Scrypt (POW)
Block Target- 2.5 minutes
Total Coins- 84 million
Mining Reward- 20 coins per block (Halving at 210000 Blocks)
Retarget Difficulty- 2016 Blocks
Infrastructure- Lite version of Bitcoin
Premine- 5% (To cover server fees, bounties, and unforeseen expenses)
F.A.Q.
Who are we and why are we doing this?
We are a duo (I'm Andrew, Community Manager and she is Priya, Programmer) and I friggen love DF (She doesn't play anything other than Minecraft and Stardew Valley). Since Priya is having trouble finding work in programming and I'm doing nothing but playing DF and trading Crypto, I came up with the idea of mixing all these things together. And so, Dorfcoin was made!
Our plan. Like any good fortress, we set out a basic blueprint of where to take this cryptocurrency.
  1. Build wallet and miner for Linux- Completed!
  2. Create wallet for Windows- Completed!
  3. Create a miner for Windows- Completed!
  4. Create a wallet and miner for Android
  5. Have our coin listed on a Trade Depot (Exchange)
  6. Offer real products in exchange for Dorfcoin (Silver and Copper Ingots to start)
  7. Officially support a GPU miner for Linux/Windows/Mac- Windows Completed!
  8. Create a wallet and miner for iOS
  9. Create a casino minigame for Dorfcoin (on Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS)
  10. Rebuild wallet with built in CPU and GPU Solo/Pool mining with user friendliness in mind for Linux, Windows, and Mac
How can I make money off this?
By mining! No longer must you send Dorf miners to certain death to accumulate wealth. Simply download a Linux Wallet from here or a Windows Wallet from here.
For solo CPU Mining-
In your wallet, go to Help -> Debug Window -> Console and type in setgenerate true -(# of threads you want your processor to use). It should look like this, without the quotations; "setgenerate true -3" for 3 threads. Give it about 30 minutes to sync with our network and you'll begin mining!
For solo GPU Mining-
Download this package and follow the readme.
You may want to encrypt your wallet for safety, but be sure to write down the password should you do so- WE HAVE NO WAY OF RECOVERING YOUR PASSWORD IF YOU LOSE IT. There have been horror stories of bitcoin millionaires who can't access their fortune because they lost their wallet's password. You don't want to become one of these people.
Pool mining-
Throw this onto the config file of any stratum pool miner-
-o stratum+tcp://miningpool.thruhere.net:5516 -u Your wallet address here -p x
What makes us different?
We want to make cryptocurrency more accessible. And not just by adoption, but in mining as well. This is why we will make an app to mine Dorfcoin, though it cannot compete with a dedicated rig, pool mining with your phone will get people directly involved with Dorfcoin.
What are your thoughts on elves?
They're wusses. What do you mean they won't trade with me anymore? That wooden sculpture came from dead wood off my starting wagon- I didn't even murder any trees! (Yet).
More will be added as questions come up.

Slow, but steady wins the race?

I’m sure most would agree that nothing great comes easy and without a consistent effort. And just like in the old children’s story of the tortoise and the hare, if you “take a nap” at a critical time during the strive to success then you run the risk of losing out on an easy win. Hard work will get you results and most good things take time.
“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.”— Confucius However, let’s be honest. If the hare wouldn’t have fallen asleep from being overly confident in its speed then the tortoise would have never won the race no matter how slow or steady it moved. In fact, if the hare would have showed humility then the race may have never even happened. This I feel is an equally important lesson from the story — remain humble.
But why shouldn’t the hare brag about its speed? The hare takes pride in letting others know how fast it is, and this is where the problem lies. When one does things for the approval of others then it can genuinely take away from the great act itself. Humility shows self-respect and in return helps gain the respect from others around us knowing that our actions were performed for the right reason.
When Satoshi successfully created Bitcoin he was humble. He did not brag. And he did it for the right reasons. This exact thing is what the crypto space needs more of and what #WWSS and ECC are aiming to convey.
Click “Start” to begin survey. What’s new and what’s news! Just like #WWSS, the Declaration of Currency Independence was created in order to establish a basis on how blockchain and cryptocurrency can, and I believe will, benefit all of us. This is why it is important that projects and cryptocurrencies within this space work together to achieve the overall goal of currency independence.
These exact ideologies can be heard within each interview I (@MrCryptoCarlton) conducted with the three members of Team McAfee (@GemCrypto and @bmiles84) including John McAfee himself (@officialmcafee). Listening to these interviews, you will be able to tell that Team McAfee is tremendously well-versed when it comes to blockchain and cryptocurrency, and very much enthusiastic about its future.
Along with Team McAfee, I had the pleasure of interviewing two other heavy hitters in the investment, social media and cryptocurrency world as well — Sam Ball (@thesamball) and Warren Whitlock (@WarrenWhitlock). Both of these gentlemen are extremely knowledgeable in their respective fields of expertise and the dialog was nothing short of intriguing.
When Podcast? The audio for these interviews will be released via my new podcast show called The Bull Pen Podcast presented by me, The Crypto Bully, and ECC in the near future so be on the lookout via ECC’s social communities.
Oh, and I may or may not be looking into pairing up with a very well known podcast network to launch my podcast show and these awesome interviews for maximum exposure. wink wink
Bridging the gap Shortly after the posting of our last ECC Stand-up Medium article two weeks ago, our Marketing Lead, Wim Sijberts (@wim), had a meet up with Bithumb Exchange’s General Manager, Ted Kim, and from the looks of things (see image below) it was a highly productive one.
ECC’s Core Values We also conducted a poll to vote for the top 7 core values that our community felt represented ECC the best. Well, those results are now in and are as follows (by percentage in descending order):
Simplicity : It’s not enough to have a great idea or an innovative product. If it can’t be easily understood and usable by the masses, it won’t be adopted. At ECC we strive to keep it simple! Positive Impact : As our community grows and our blockchain products become more widely adopted, so does our power. And with great power, comes even greater responsibility. ECC community members and product users seek to leave the world a better place than we found it. Security : Embedded in the DNA of our community is our desire for personal security and privacy. You reveal what you’d like about yourself. We’re just as happy to know you by your real name or an anonymous avatar. Patience : The best products take time and precision to get right. The cliche is true. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither will ECC be. Respect: Compassion and understanding is the bedrock of the ECC community. We debate and we disagree from time to time, but we always strive to be respectful and have understanding for our fellow members. Equals : There are no heroes or superstars here. ECC is community-driven and community-powered. We are all in this together fighting for our decentralized freedom and security. Challengers : The world isn’t changed by yes men and yes women. Progress takes open-minded discussion and respectful debate. We welcome it at ECC. The community selected core values will be added to the website as a new page over the next two weeks so be on the lookout for that.
Hot off the press! The official WWSS press release, written up by our very own Kevin Bailey (@ECC Buddha), was successfully pushed out to over 650 premium television outlets, newspapers, major news sites, industry news sites, financial feeds, regional and local new sites and social media. The marketing team is continuing to promote the WWSS and are expected to do so throughout the month of June.
Tip: Google “Hundreds of Crypto Influencers, Developers, and Holders Speak for Satoshi” to see Google indexed pages.
It’s finally live! Be sure to check ECC’s new, robust FAQ page which has a lot of useful info.
FAQ
The home page for ECC, a multi-chain cryptocurrency focusing on a solution to currency transfer, name resolution, file… ecc.network Until further notice After several attempts of communication with Octaex we have not received any answer regarding the status of their exchange, so for the moment we would advise the community not to use this exchange until further notice.
Welcome the new team members! The ECC team seems to be becoming more well-rounded when looking at the skill sets that come with each new member. Over the past two weeks we have added an additional 7 team members:
Marketing Tom van Els (@tomve), Strategic Development and Partnerships Colin Eason (@Khaleesi), Community Outreach Lucas Moran (@Skywalker), Community Outreach Michael Ventura (@Ziggy ECC), Marketing Logistics
Project Consulting Brent DesRoches (@Mr. Plow), Consultant Yoseff Diaz (@yoseff), Consultant
Each of these individuals have put some serious time and effort into ECC, helping with everything from pushing #WWSS to setting up the most recent interviews mentioned above, and I for one am highly appreciative. They will all officially be added to the Our Team page of the ECC website over the next few days.
Let’s give them all a warm welcome!
Dev Update The versioning system for ECC has been changed, and the daemon versions will go from 0.2.5.11 (current version of daemon) to 0.16.0.0 (next version of daemon). Since ECC references the BCH code base, the versioning system will now reflect the BCH code that we more closely relate to.
Note: the reference code is in terms of networking and mempool improvements; ECC does not plan to add colored coins.
With that being said, version 0.16.0.0 is under development. A few bug fixes have already been implemented, most notably the staking bug where coins wouldn’t return will be fixed. Some of the other planned upgrades/features for 0.16.0.0 are as follows:
The network manager and service systems were reworked a bit in preparation for the messaging and file storage code, which means you will be able to change networks without restarting Sapphire (very useful for the services). Expect to see a huge increase in performance and reduction of syncing and loading times. Some of the ways files are stored on disk will have changed so the folder structure will look a little different. Messaging test net will launch. A change in algorithm from scrypt to SHA256. PoS reward calculation will change, and it will now be a max of a flat 10 coins per block staked. The fee and coin system within ECC is being reworked and with that comes a few more useful functions for figuring out fees before sending a transaction. The update to 0.16.0.0 also indicates that ECC’s second chain is coming soon. It will not launch right when 0.16.0.0 is released, but should happen either shortly after it or with the release of 0.16.1.0.
ANS There has been a lot of progress made with ANS. These are the bugs that have been squashed:
Change address issue — when a new address is generated if exactly 50 ECC was sent then nothing would happen. Improvement on ANS relay (better message propagation). Incorrect display of a message that reads “insufficient balance” when the balance is indeed sufficient. With that being said, we are happy to announce that the code for ANS is now complete and functioning properly. The only thing left to do is to finish coding the interface so that everyone can use it within Sapphire. The dev team is currently working on this, so it won’t be long now until ANS is available for everyone.
Marketing Update In case any hodlers are wondering, the types of marketing we’re doing right now are very light community and brand building things. It may look like a lot since these types of things haven’t been done much within ECC before now, but it’s light. Major marketing initiatives launch when we’re actively seeking new users for working products.
Looking forward to ramping users up when everything is ready. By that time we’ll have a sizable group of marketers fully trained up via the efforts we’re making now.
There will also be an official update coming soon on exchanges and supporters/partnerships, as the team has been working these sectors quite vigorously over the past few weeks.
ECC on Wall Street Ever wonder what someone on Wall Street might think about blockchain and cryptocurrency? Well so did Lucas Moran (@Skywalker), so he took to the streets — the Wall streets!
All captured on video, Lucas went to Wall Street located in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan in New York City, New York and asked multiple individuals questions from the WWSS survey in search of their responses and he received plenty. He is currently preparing this footage for release so expect to see his findings in the not-so-distant future.
And be ready because I have a feeling this video is going to be interesting!
I hope everyone enjoyed reading this week’s ECC stand-up as much as I enjoyed writing it. See everyone in another 2 weeks!
Cheers, Lyndon (@MrCryptoCarlton)

Myriad 0.11.2

There you go, it's out there now.

TL;DR. Just give me the bits

Would be great if someone who has the skills & tools could generate us a nice stable MacOS build? Anyone?

Recommended Action

Backup your wallet before using this. You've probably already done that, as I am sure you backup your wallet on a regular basis, right?
Something bad happens, your wallet is destroyed AND you didn't take a backup? Don't blame me.

Naming

A lot of stuff has been renamed to 'Myriad' - however there are a couple of exceptions for reasons of compatibility with older existing versions:

Compilation Notes

If you are compiling yourself, please configure with something like this:
CFLAGS="-O2 -fPIC" CPPFLAGS="-O2 -fPIC" ./configure 
otherwise you'll probably get some errors later on. Additionally, if your CPU supports SSE2, and most modern CPU's do, use this:
CFLAGS="-O2 -fPIC -DUSE_SSE2" CPPFLAGS="-O2 -fPIC -DUSE_SSE2" ./configure 
That will enable the SSE2 version of the Scrypt algorithm. This may reduce the CPU load when syncing the blockchain.
Oh, and there's still some tests that fail if you build and run the testsuite. I've been unable to find the issue, so please, when you fix it, submit a pull request.

Special Thanks

A big thanks to cryptapus and 8bitcoder for their help in getting this release completed. Obviously we must also thank all of the contributors to the Bitcoin Core project, as that is the base that this is all built upon.
And again thanks to 8bitcoder for starting Myriad in the first place.

Downgrading warning

Because this release is based on Bitcoin Core 0.10.0 and upwards, it makes use of headers-first synchronization and parallel block download (see further), the block files and databases are not backwards-compatible with older versions of Myriad Core or other software:
If you want to be able to downgrade smoothly, make a backup of your entire data directory. Without this your node will need start syncing (or importing from bootstrap.dat) anew afterwards. It is possible that the data from a completely synchronised 0.11.2 node may be usable in older versions as-is, but this is not supported and may break as soon as the older version attempts to reindex.
This does not affect wallet forward or backward compatibility.

Notable changes (Borrowed from Bitcoin Core's Release Notes)

Faster synchronization

Myriad Core now uses 'headers-first synchronization'. This means that we first ask peers for block headers and validate those. In a second stage, when the headers have been discovered, we download the blocks. However, as we already know about the whole chain in advance, the blocks can be downloaded in parallel from all available peers.
In practice, this means a much faster and more robust synchronization. On recent hardware with a decent network link, it can be as little as 3 hours for an initial full synchronization. You may notice a slower progress in the very first few minutes, when headers are still being fetched and verified, but it should gain speed afterwards.
A few RPCs were added/updated as a result of this: - getblockchaininfo now returns the number of validated headers in addition to the number of validated blocks. - getpeerinfo lists both the number of blocks and headers we know we have in common with each peer. While synchronizing, the heights of the blocks that we have requested from peers (but haven't received yet) are also listed as 'inflight'. - A new RPC getchaintips lists all known branches of the block chain, including those we only have headers for.

RPC access control changes

Subnet matching for the purpose of access control is now done by matching the binary network address, instead of with string wildcard matching. For the user this means that -rpcallowip takes a subnet specification, which can be
An arbitrary number of -rpcallow arguments can be given. An incoming connection will be accepted if its origin address matches one of them.
For example:
0.9.x and before 0.10.x
-rpcallowip=192.168.1.1 -rpcallowip=192.168.1.1 (unchanged)
-rpcallowip=192.168.1.* -rpcallowip=192.168.1.0/24
-rpcallowip=192.168.* -rpcallowip=192.168.0.0/16
-rpcallowip=* (dangerous!) -rpcallowip=::/0 (still dangerous!)
Using wildcards will result in the rule being rejected with the following error in debug.log:
Error: Invalid -rpcallowip subnet specification: *. Valid are a single IP (e.g. 1.2.3.4), a network/netmask (e.g. 1.2.3.4/255.255.255.0) or a network/CIDR (e.g. 1.2.3.4/24). 

Watch-only wallet support

The wallet can now track transactions to and from wallets for which you know all addresses (or scripts), even without the private keys.
This can be used to track payments without needing the private keys online on a possibly vulnerable system. In addition, it can help for (manual) construction of multisig transactions where you are only one of the signers.
One new RPC, importaddress, is added which functions similarly to importprivkey, but instead takes an address or script (in hexadecimal) as argument. After using it, outputs credited to this address or script are considered to be received, and transactions consuming these outputs will be considered to be sent.
The following RPCs have optional support for watch-only: getbalance, listreceivedbyaddress, listreceivedbyaccount, listtransactions, listaccounts, listsinceblock, gettransaction. See the RPC documentation for those methods for more information.
Compared to using getrawtransaction, this mechanism does not require -txindex, scales better, integrates better with the wallet, and is compatible with future block chain pruning functionality. It does mean that all relevant addresses need to added to the wallet before the payment, though.

myriadcoin-tx

It has been observed that many of the RPC functions offered by myriadcoind are "pure functions", and operate independently of the myriadcoind wallet. This included many of the RPC "raw transaction" API functions, such as createrawtransaction.
myriadcoin-tx is a newly introduced command line utility designed to enable easy manipulation of myriad transactions. A summary of its operation may be obtained via "myriadcoin-tx --help" Transactions may be created or signed in a manner similar to the RPC raw tx API. Transactions may be updated, deleting inputs or outputs, or appending new inputs and outputs. Custom scripts may be easily composed using a simple text notation, borrowed from the bitcoin test suite.
This tool may be used for experimenting with new transaction types, signing multi-party transactions, and many other uses. Long term, the goal is to deprecate and remove "pure function" RPC API calls, as those do not require a server round-trip to execute.

How To Mine Doge with Ubuntu 13.10. (Part 1, for AMD Graphics Cards)

I feel the community really needs a resource like this. Because if I had a Doge for every-time taught a newbie how to Mine on Ubuntu, I would be a very rich doge!
EDIT: Sorry if it looks funny, Reddit doesn't like the numbers I put in for some reason.
If you have Ubuntu you have likely not upgraded because you think you cant mine on 13.10, and while that has been true in the past, a few people have got it figured out. So feel free to upgrade. If you are not on Ubuntu, Seriously you should consider using it. Even if its just on an older desktop.
Alright, so lets get a few things clear, I am assuming that you just FRESHLY installed Ubuntu 13.10 x64 on your system. I am assuming that you have no drivers, and no miners. You will need at least a key board and a mouse. The guide will be done in several parts, this first part is for most AMD Graphics cards. If you have an Nvidia, or just want to mine with your CPU, please check back later for those guides!
When reading this guide, please remember that as I give you commands to type into the terminal, Anything between { and} must be included. Do not copy and paste the {}.
Lets get started, If you have not already done so, Install Ubuntu 13.10 64Bit From Here (http://www.ubuntu.com/index_asus.html)
*1. Lets start by making sure you are up to date. Open up the terminal and enter this:
{sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade} 
Let that run for a bit.
*2. Once that has finished we are going to download some applications we will need:
{sudo apt-get install dh-make dh-modaliases execstack libxrandr2 libice6 libsm6 libfontconfig1 libxi6 libxcursor1 libgl1-mesa-glx libxinerama1 libqtgui4} 
*3. Once that has run its course we are going to install the ssh server. Remember this command is going to make your computer shut down. While it is shut down, carefully install your graphics cards. If you don't have any experience with this, I suggest you 3 minutes to watch this guide, because failure to install a graphics card the right way can destroy it.
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9x097QRXeA)
{sudo apt-get install openssh-server sudo shutdown now} 
*4.Install your Card(s) and turn the computer back on.
*5. Make a new folder called "AMD DRIVERS123" inside of your download folder. Downoad the following 3 things into that folder. (1. AMD Drivers: http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/incomplete) (2. AMD APP SDK: http://developer.amd.com/tools-and-sdks/heterogeneous-computing/amd-accelerated-parallel-processing-app-sdk/downloads/) (3. AMD ADL SDK:http://developer.amd.com/tools-and-sdks/graphics-development/display-library-adl-sdk/)
*6. Ok, now we need to unzip and compile those drivers. So, open a terminal my right clicking inside of "AMD DRIVERS123". The enter this:
{unzip amd-catalyst*.zip chmod +x amd-catalyst*.run} {sudo ./amd-catalyst*.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/saucy} 
*7. Now we need to install the drivers. Enter the code exactly as you see it, don't worry, the first command will fail, we are expecting it too.
{sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb} {sudo apt-get -f install} {sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb} {sudo reboot} 
Your computer should now reboot.
(If this failed, you probibly need to remove the old drivers. Do this
{cd /etc/default sudo pico grub} 
Change the line:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset" 
Now save by pressing [CTRL+x]
{sudo update-grub} this will make the change perminent. {sudo reboot -n} Reboot with new settings. Once it starts back up try installing the new drivers again.) 
*8.GREAT! You are really on a roll! Now we need to update AtiConfig
{sudo aticonfig --initial --adapter=all} 
*9.Time to install the APP ADK:
{tar xvf AMD-APP-SDK*.tgz} {sudo ./Install-AMD-APP.sh} {sudo reboot} 
*10. WOOT! You are so close to diggin that sweet Doge!! Its time to download CGMiner. IMPORTANT NOTE! You need to get CGminer 3.7, IT IS THE ONLY ONE THAT WILL WORK. Do not get any older or newer, Just this. :
{sudo apt-get install git unzip git clone -b 3.7 https://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer} 
*11. Ok, now go back to "AMD DRIVERS123", Unzip AMD SDL SDK 6.0. Once you have it unzipped, go the file called "include", open it up, copy everything inside, then go find CGminer. Copy these files into the CGminer file called ADL_SDK.
*12. To install CGminer, we are going to need a few things. Get all of these.
{sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf libtool libcurl4-openssl-dev libncurses5-dev pkg-config libudev-dev} 
*13. Lets go ahead and compile CGminer.
{cd cgminer} {./autogen.sh} 
*14. Ok, when you did that, it told you GPU was not supported, time to fix it.
{./configure --enable-opencl --enable-scrypt} 
(if you did it right you should now get this: OpenCL...............: FOUND. GPU mining support enabled scrypt...............: Enabled ADL..................: SDK found, GPU monitoring support enabled)
*15. If everything has been good so far then
{make} 
*16. MATHEMATICAL! Now lets get it set up to run a test.
{nano test.sh} {!/bin/bash export DISPLAY=:0 export GPU_MAX_ALLOC_PERCENT=100 export GPU_USE_SYNC_OBJECTS=1} {./cgminer -n} 
*17. Now save by hitting [Control+x][y][Enter]
*18.Lastly lets CHmod test.sh
{chmod+x test.sh} 
*19. TIME TO RUN THE TEXT!!!
{./test.sh} 
(If your output looks like this your ready to go!!! CL Platform 0 vendor: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. CL Platform 0 name: AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing CL Platform 0 version: OpenCL 1.2 AMD-APP (1214.3) Platform 0 devices: 1 0 Tahiti GPU 0 AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series hardware monitoring enabled 1 GPU devices max detected)
*20. Excellent! Now we have it installed, its time to pick 2-3 pools, and get accounts set up at each of them. I currently use These 2, and If I find another I like I'll update. If you have a really awesome pool you would like me to include on the list, feel free to message me.
Pools: http://doge.cryptovalley.com/ (great community, server not super stable, but they have a chat. I hang out here a lot under the handle 'StrongBad' feel free to stop buy and ask questions)
https://dogehouse.org/ (Super stable pool, Great contests, super friendly, and they pay your miner a bonus if you find the block!)
Choose your pools, go to their sites and sign up. VERY IMPORTANT!!! Use different usernames and passwords for every mining site. If one site gets hacked, you don't want to give them a way to steal everything!!!!! Don't worry about the worker names and passwords being unique or complex tho, the most they can do with this is mine for you.
*21. Ok, now go to the CGminer folder, and open up a Terminal Window.
{sudo ./cgminer} 
This should start ./cgminer up with some really basic settings, and not pointed at any pool. Lets fix that: First press [p] to go to pool settings Now [A] and enter the information for the 1st pool. For instance if you are signing on for dogehouse: (Input server details: stratum+tcp://stratum.dogehouse.org:3333 Username: 'yourusername.workername password: 'yourpassword') If you got no errors, you did it right! Your miner should now connect and start to mine very slowly.
Now, do the same thing for all your other pools. the reason we do this is because Doge Coin pools are constantly being DDoS attacked, and this way your worker automatically switches over to a good pool if one go's down.
*22. time to save your current settings press [Enter] to get back out to the main menu, then [s] to bring up settings. Now press [W] to write a Config file. Name it DogeCoin.conf, and make sure to save it in the location it directs you too.
*23.OK! So, now we have everything set up to its basics. What you need to do now is sit down, and fine tune your Card(s). Its really early in the morning, and I need to get some sleep, I will add more on how to tune your card tomorrow in another post, and link it HERE:
Or, I will help you find the best configuration for your card(s). However as this is quite a bit of work, I do charge a small fee. Contact me with your card(s) information and I will get back to you right away. I generally let you decide how much to pay me.
This is my first ever guide on reddit! If you enjoyed it, or if it helped you please remember to upvote! I am going to start doing an educational YouTube series about Bitcoin, and will likely be doing a side program about Doge, if I find time and funding!! You can find that here: All tips are appreciated! DPTwcQreASwzt6TeWBWFb6Kz9ZU5Sezvr9 If you have any Questions, feel free to ask, I will get back to you ASAP.
Happy Digging everybody!

iwtwe's Total Noob Starting Guide. much noob..such help...very inform...wow

NOTE for seasoned miners, if I have made a mistake or if there is an easier way of configuring the miners or if I left something out, please do not hesitate to contact me about it so that I can edit this post accordingly. Let's help new people out so that the community will continue to grow! many thanks...wow
Hey you. Yes you with the eyes. Are you new to the world of crypto coin mining? Have no idea what a dogecoin is? Want to start mining dogecoins today and just can't seem to figure it out or get it to work?
Well have I got much help for you! About a week ago, I finally started mining after two painful days of trying to get it to work. Basically, I was a total noob and didn't really understand anything about mining in general. Because of the joy mining has brought me so far I am writing this guide to hopefully help out new members or other total noobs.
It's safe to say I've been bitten by the dogecoin bug. I started out with a measly 50 khash/sec and made approximately 10 coins in 12 hours. * My reaction when I finally got my miner to work * Reaction cont.
Now I'm up to 500 khash/sec after figuring out all the 'nuts and bolts' of mining. wow...such optimization...many hash
I'll break this guide down into three categories: Detailed Info, CGMiner Config for AMD Cards, and lastly, CUDAMiner for Nvidia cards.
Detailed Info very words....wow
A dogecoin is a type of crypto currency that is traded against bitcoins in a crypto currency marketplace.
You can earn dogecoins by contributing hashes (computing power) to a mining pool to help find a block.
There are a certain amount of dogecoins that will be released. These coins are released in the form of a block ranging in quantity of 1-1,000,000 doge coins. It is worth noting that the total quantity of coins per block will soon be halved to just 500,000.
Things you will need to mine: * dogecoin wallet * computer with a GPU * an account with a mining pool * a worker for the mining pool * mining software
1) [http://dogecoin.com](Download the doge coin wallet and install it)
2) Turn off your computer's anti-virus software and allow the dogecoin wallet through your fire wall. *VERY IMPORTANT
3) Run the dogecoin wallet and let it sync with the network. It is important to note that this can take a short amount of time or even up to 12 hours to complete. Just be patient. Use that time to research mining more.

Once your wallet has synced with the network, it is time to sign up with a mining pool. Think of a mining pool as a virtual supercomputer that is made up of many smaller computers connected together. This pool or 'super computer' allows for greater processing power. More processing power = greater chance of the pool finding a block.

Finding a pool
"Dear shibes!
Be careful when running Java and/or entering the usepass on sites. There are phishing sites out there that imitate other pools to steal your data.
When accessing a mining pool, DO NOT follow any redirects, always access the site directly and check the URL. For extra security, make sure you're using https://
Don't run Java!" <--- not my words, but very good warning to take into consideration
1) Perform a quick google search or use the links in the side bar to find a pool!
2) For this example I will be using https://fast-pool.com/index.php (I in no way, shape, or form endorse this particular pool. It was the first one I clicked. Feel free to use any pool you want, as the sites are all the same.)
3) You're going to want to click "Sign Up" in the menu on the left of the page. After clicking, sign up for an account.
4) After signing up for an account, log into your account. (For the sake of my example my mining pool site username will be "Shibe")
5) Now we will create a pool worker. Click "My Workers" in the menu on the left side of the page.
6) Choose a worker name and worker password and click submit. *NOTE THE WORKER NAME IS NOT THE SAME AS YOUR ACCOUNT USERNAME
7) For the sake of the example my workers name is "worker1" and the password is "x". *Note capitalization matters so don't forget it.
Now we will download a mining software and configure it to mine.
Before we do that I want to clarify what the info we will be using to configure our miner is.
1) Click "Getting Started"
In my example pool under getting started you will see this in "Step 3":
  1. Configure your miner.
    Settings for Stratum (recommended): STRATUM: stratum+tcp://fast-pool.com PORT: 3336 Username: Weblogin.Worker Password: Worker Password
If you use a command-line miner, type:
./cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://fast-pool.com:3336 -u Weblogin.Worker -p Worker password
The above explained:
Final Step Regarding Mining Pools
We need to add our payment address to our mining pool account so that we can receive the dogecoins we help mine.
1) Click "Edit Account" on the menu on the left side of the page.
2) Scroll down until you see "PAYMENT ADDRESS".
3) Minimize the webpage and go to your doge coin wallet.
4) In your dogecoin wallet click the "Much Receive" tab.
5) You will see the Label "Default" with an "Address" composed of a long random string of letters and numbers.
6) Right-click that string of random numbers and letters and select "copy address".
7) Maximize the pools webpage again and paste that address into "PAYMENT ADDRESS".
8) Enter you pin and click "Update Account".
WE'RE NOW READY TO DOWNLOAD A MINER such hooray....many celebrate
IF YOU HAVE AN AMD CARD, THIS SECTION IS FOR YOU!
*Note AMD cards are much better for mining than Nvidia. It's just the way it is!
We will be using cgminer to mine dogecoins with our AMD cards.
While there are newer versions of cgminer avaliable you're going to want to download cgminer version 3.7.2 because any higher versions do not support GPU mining.
1) Make sure your AMD drivers are up to date.
2) This version of cgminer is now only available on gitub at this url. The option to download the zip file in on the bottom left right side column.
3) After downloading the file, extract its contents to a folder on your desktop.
4) Before we do that go to Control Panel Folder Options View select "Show hidden files, folders, and drives" and click apply.
BEFORE YOU TRY THE BELOW, RUN THE APPLICATION AND INPUT THE SERVER URL:PORT (stratum+tcp://fast-pool.com:3336) "enter" USERNAME (Shibe.worker1) "enter" and PASSWORD (x) "enter".
*If the application runs without giving you errors hit the [S] and select "create config file" and hit enter.
5) If that didn't work, we will make a .conf file that allows cgminer to run correctly.
6) Now go to the folder you extracted cgminer into.
7) Right-click anywhere in the folder and select "New" Text document.
8) Right-click the new text document you just created and select "Edit".
9) Copy and paste the following into that new text document leaving no space at the top and enter the appropriate pool information accordingly. Noticed I used my STRATUM info from my example.
IF YOU HAVE ONLY ONE GPU USE THE BELOW
{ "pools" : [ { "url" : "stratum+tcp://fast-pool.com:3336", "user" : "Shibe.worker1", "pass" : "x" } ] , "intensity" : "10", "vectors" : "1", "worksize" : "256", "kernel" : "scrypt", "lookup-gap" : "0", "thread-concurrency" : "0", "shaders" : "0", "gpu-engine" : "0-0", "gpu-fan" : "0-0", "gpu-memclock" : "0", "gpu-memdiff" : "0", "gpu-powertune" : "0", "gpu-vddc" : "0.000", "temp-cutoff" : "95", "temp-overheat" : "0", "temp-target" : "0", "api-mcast-port" : "4028", "api-port" : "4028", "expiry" : "120", "gpu-dyninterval" : "7", "gpu-platform" : "0", "gpu-threads" : "1", "hotplug" : "5", "log" : "5", "no-pool-disable" : true, "queue" : "0", "scan-time" : "30", "scrypt" : true,
IF YOU HAVE TWO GPU's IN CROSSFIRE USE THE BELOW CODE
{ "pools" : [ { "url" : "stratum+tcp://fast-pool.com:3336", "user" : "Shibe.worker1", "pass" : "x" } ] , "intensity" : "10,10", "vectors" : "1,1", "worksize" : "256,256", "kernel" : "scrypt,scrypt", "lookup-gap" : "0,0", "thread-concurrency" : "0,0", "shaders" : "0,0", "gpu-engine" : "0-0,0-0", "gpu-fan" : "0-0,0-0", "gpu-memclock" : "0,0", "gpu-memdiff" : "0,0", "gpu-powertune" : "0,0", "gpu-vddc" : "0.000,0.000", "temp-cutoff" : "95,95", "temp-overheat" : "0,0", "temp-target" : "0,0", "api-mcast-port" : "4028", "api-port" : "4028", "expiry" : "120", "gpu-dyninterval" : "7", "gpu-platform" : "0", "gpu-threads" : "1", "hotplug" : "5", "log" : "5", "no-pool-disable" : true, "queue" : "0", "scan-time" : "30", "scrypt" : true, "temp-hysteresis" : "3", "shares" : "0", "kernel-path" : "/uslocal/bin" }
10) Click save-as Save as type, "All files" and rename the document to: cgminer.conf
11) Click save and run program.
12) If it still doesn't work try changing the intensity to a lower number or changing the workspace value to 64.
Everything should work now. If I have made any errors or if there are easier ways of doing this please let me know so that I can edit this. This is just what worked for me.
IF YOU HAVE A NVIDIA CARD THIS SECTION IS FOR YOU!
Before we do anything, go to Control Panel Folder Options View select "Show hidden files, folders, and drives" and click apply.
We will be using Cudaminer version 2013-07-13 https://mega.co.nz/#!hVREmSKA!VaGCdh3Ykfp-e8IOTFWaEXJGMa1JNVqPcdxawkCPRSE
1) Download Cudaminer version 2013-07-13 from that link and extract the contents to a folder on the desktop.
2) Open that folder and look for the Application.
3) When you've found the location of the Application it's-self you're going to right-click anywhere in the folder and select "New" Text document.
8) Right-click the new text document you just created and select "Edit".
9) Copy and paste this to the top line of the blank text document leaving no space in front and input the appropriate url, username and password from whatever pool you use. (I will be using my example pool info stated earlier in this post):
cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://fast-pool.com:3336 -u Shibe.worker1 -p x
10) Click save-as Save as type, "All files" and rename the document to: Launch.bat
11) Click save.
12) Double click the Launch.bat file you just created to run the program.
13) Wait for the program to auto-tune your settings and then it will start mining automatically.
Everything should work now. If I have made any errors or if there are easier ways of doing this please let me know so that I can edit this. This is just what worked for me.

To the moon! Dogemining with BFGMiner, Debian, and ATI.

Visitor from the future! Hello. I'm a newbie digger and recently setup my first dedicated mining box in Debian. I'm not the most experienced Linux user, but the machine had started with Debian Squeeze and I couldn't find its old Windows key. (Also please forgive formatting errors, I'm new to this whole "Reddit" thing as well.)
I found a number of guides to misdirect me on my way, so I decided to write up a sort-of (or at least hopefully up-to-date) guide to create a Dogecoin miner on Debian with AMD cards, using BFGMiner to mine coins.
Expert digging shibes: I would certainly appreciate feedback to improve this guide.
This is not a headless mining guide. I have not reached that level of mastery yet, though I believe it is well within reach.
HOWTO
You can refer to this wiki source to understand the output from BFGMiner 3.10.0. The one gotcha I've observed is that BFGMiner will happily start off showing hash rates in KHash/sec, and after the first accepted block it will jump to MHashes/sec. When I first saw my hash speed appear to drop from "250" to "0.2", I panicked a little before seeing it had changed its orders of magnitude.
If you think you're still mining slowly, you might need to bump up the intensity for BFGMiner. Higher intensity means more work, and it's possible to create hardware failures if you set it too high. For my HD 5870s, I use an intensity of 12. You can either set the intensity by adding "-I 12" to the ./bfgminer line of doge_dig.sh, or you can adjust the value by pressing M in BFGMiner and working through the menu system from there.
Bonus: Multiple cards
What happens if I have multiple ATI cards on one rig, you ask? I had the same problem, and OpenCL would only recognize one of them! It turns out that there's an easy solution, but it costs $1.25 in resistors from your local radio shack: http://www.overclock.net/t/384733/the-30-second-dummy-plug
Plug the finished product from there into your second card. If you have more than two cards, you'll need to make one for every card you want to recognize without a monitor attached to it. Reboot and restart your mining, BFGMiner should recognize all of your cards now.
In theory, the above technique should allow you to run completely headless, as long as you also install SSH and be sure to have your script export DISPLAY=:0 before running BFGMiner. I haven't tried this, though.
Happy mining and welcome to the Moon! I hope this is helpful to someone.

  2. 2876 points, 24 submissions: ydtm
    1. The debate is not "SHOULD THE BLOCKSIZE BE 1MB VERSUS 1.7MB?". The debate is: "WHO SHOULD DECIDE THE BLOCKSIZE?" (1) Should an obsolete temporary anti-spam hack freeze blocks at 1MB? (2) Should a centralized dev team soft-fork the blocksize to 1.7MB? (3) OR SHOULD THE MARKET DECIDE THE BLOCKSIZE? (354 points, 116 comments)
    2. BU-SW parity! 231 vs 231 of the last 1000 blocks! Consensus will always win over censorship! MARKET-BASED blocksize will always win over CENTRALLY-PLANNED blocksize! People want blocksize to be determined by the MARKET - not by Greg Maxwell & his 1.7MB anyone-can-spend SegWit-as-a-soft-fork blocks. (271 points, 66 comments)
    3. The number of blocks being mined by Bitcoin Unlimited is now getting very close to surpassing the number of blocks being mined by SegWit! More and more people are supporting BU's MARKET-BASED BLOCKSIZE - because BU avoids needless transaction delays and ultimately increases Bitcoin adoption & price! (185 points, 80 comments)
    4. "Notice how anyone who has even remotely supported on-chain scaling has been censored, hounded, DDoS'd, attacked, slandered & removed from any area of Core influence. Community, business, Hearn, Gavin, Jeff, XT, Classic, Coinbase, Unlimited, ViaBTC, Ver, Jihan, Bitcoin.com, btc" ~ u/randy-lawnmole (176 points, 114 comments)
    5. "Why is Flexible Transactions more future-proof than SegWit?" by u/ThomasZander (175 points, 110 comments)
    6. "You have to understand that Core and their supporters eg Theymos WANT a hardfork to be as messy as possible. This entire time they've been doing their utmost to work AGAINST consensus, and it will continue until they are simply removed from the community like the cancer they are." ~ u/singularity87 (170 points, 28 comments)
    7. Blockstream/Core don't care about you. They're repeatedly crippling the network with their DEV-CONTROLLED blocksize. Congestion & delays are now ROUTINE & PREDICTABLE after increased difficulty / time between blocks. Only we can fix the network - using MARKET-CONTROLLED blocksize (Unlimited/Classic) (168 points, 60 comments)
    8. 3 excellent articles highlighting some of the major problems with SegWit: (1) "Core Segwit – Thinking of upgrading? You need to read this!" by WallStreetTechnologist (2) "SegWit is not great" by Deadalnix (3) "How Software Gets Bloated: From Telephony to Bitcoin" by Emin Gün Sirer (146 points, 59 comments)
    9. This trader's price & volume graph / model predicted that we should be over $10,000 USD/BTC by now. The model broke in late 2014 - when AXA-funded Blockstream was founded, and started spreading propaganda and crippleware, centrally imposing artificially tiny blocksize to suppress the volume & price. (143 points, 97 comments)
    10. Now that BU is overtaking SW, r\bitcoin is in meltdown. The 2nd top post over there (sorted by "worst first" ie "controversial") is full of the most ignorant, confused, brainwashed comments ever seen on r\bitcoin - starting with the erroneous title: "The problem with forking and creating two coins."

    1. Dear Theymos, you divided the Bitcoin community. Not Roger, not Gavin, not Mike. It was you.

    4. Core's own reasoning doesn't add up: If segwit requires 95% of last 2016 blocks to activate, and their fear of using a hardfork instead of a softfork is "splitting the network", then how does a hardfork with a 95% trigger even come close to potentially splitting the network? (96 points, 130 comments)

Initial notes and thoughts on the Nyancoins client update

Heyo Nekonauts,
This is going to be a more technical post, and to some extent this is just a backup in case I disappear, but there's also some amusing and interesting aspects in here.
First off, the general plan and timetable. Originally, I'd been planning to rebase onto Bitcoin. This would involve two main steps, first converting to scrypt and second converting a "generic Scryptcoin" template I would make from that into a Nyancoins client. I decided that seemed a little too ambitious for the first client (and I don't know of any pressing need to rebase like that, although it would add the nicety of the faster initial sync). Instead, I'm going to go off of the Litecoin code like Nyancoins originally was, so that it will be as easy as possible.
I am planning for the end of August at the latest to have new client builds out and ready for general use. I am hoping to have it done sooner, and basing off Litecoin should hopefully help with that.
My first step was to figure out what version of Litecoin Nyancoins was forked from so that I could get as clean a diff as possible. I was able to get the general range from the fact that the copyright notice on Nyancoins ends at 2012 (!). The second piece which got me to a close enough version was the allocators.h file. From these, I was able to see that v0.6.9 was a close fit.
I looked at a diff on the src/ directory, and it is very clean: the differences are truly those changes which were made to Nyancoins, to a very high degree (perhaps one or two slight changes which are just from not being the exact version it's forked from; that's fine, all I needed was a clear enough view to see what the significant changes were).
I'm seeing all of the changes I'm expecting to see, from the genesis block, to nyanseed.com, to all of the UI text changes. So this is a really nice start. I want to post those differences, but my connection here is pretty low quality, so it might have to be later. You can always pull it up by doing a diff on the src/ folders with Nyancoins and Litecoin (git checkout v0.6.9).
Here are some of the interesting differences I saw, starting with what I found the most hilarious:
In main.cpp, we see this line: "// Copyright (c) 2013-2079 Dr. Kimoto Chan"
So apparently "Dr. Kimoto Chan" is Nyancoin's version of Satoshi Nakamoto. As you all know, we don't necessarily have an unambiguously positive view of the original creation of this coin. But nonetheless, we are only here because of that initial creation, however rough it ended up being. That line will be copied to any new version I make. [As an aside, I'm unsure how I'm going to do my copyright notice. I'm debating between "Nyancoin developers", "coinaday", and using my real name. I've said previously that I would state my real name here. I have not done so yet because I wasn't entirely sure if it would be useful or a distraction. But if there is any desire for it whatsoever, then I will publicly connect my afk name with this identity.]
Compared to that bit, everything else is pretty tame and technical.
checkpoints.cpp - This is an important one and different. I'm not entirely sure of if there's a technical advantage to adding new checkpoints or anything, but of course we have to swap out the litecoin ones for the nyancoin ones.
One interesting thing in litecoin but not in Nyancoins: there is no alert functionality here. I don't know the details of how this works, but I remember hearing about it before on bitcoin. iirc, if there were some emergency, it would allow Satoshi to actually send a brief message to everyone on the network. To the best of my knowledge, this feature has never been used.
init.cpp - We define irc-seeding as being on, while litecoin defines irc-seeding as being off. This definitely seems like a useful feature to keep. I'm not sure why it was turned off on theirs.
main.cpp - Beyond the copyright notice, there are a lot of changes here. I haven't looked at this in context, but I think it's making the block rewards spendable sooner:
"702c701 < return max(0, (COINBASE_MATURITY+15) - GetDepthInMainChain()); --- > return max(0, (COINBASE_MATURITY+20) - GetDepthInMainChain());" 
COINBASE_MATURITY is also defined lower in Nyancoins.
There are different values for "pchMessageStart"; I have no idea what that is. Perhaps it's some sort of handshake magic values? If there's any meaning to it beyond that, I'm unaware of it.
We also have all of the gravity well (difficulty calculation) stuff in there. I didn't read that in depth. I don't like how the difficulty calculations have been working out, I think it needs some smoothing at the least, but to change it would be a hard-fork, so I'm not worrying about the details at this point. I think it will be easier and better for us to just make it work as-is, which will just require getting that stable baseline hashing power.
In main.h there's a line which allows the free transactions to be 27000 in size rather than 10000 in size. There's another setting which also makes it a bit more generous (uses the same number of blocks as litecoin to determine priority, but we get them faster (at least in theory)).
In net.cpp, nyanseed.com is defined as the irc-seed location. We could add in more addresses if we'd like. We should coordinate with jwflame for how that's supposed to be run.
That also has pnSeed, which, at a quick glance at how it's used in the code, appears to be hex-encoded ip addresses for seed nodes. I'm not sure if those seed nodes need to be anything different than just a regular Nyancoins node that we expect to be long-lived. We'll want to pick some good values to hard-code in, including the prohashing node.
There are a bunch of miscellaneous places I've skipped over where the genesis block or coin parameters are defined. I can talk about all of that too if people are interested. Feel free to look through the diff; it's actually pretty human-readable for the most part I think: http://pastebin.com/x4PwD4Ui.
Finally, there's the version.h. The current Nyancoins client is labeled as version 1.2. Obviously this is different than bitcoin and litecoin which are far more conservative in their versioning and have not yet incremented the major version release. Well, we're just that important; we get major releases. I think it's sort of fitting with the concept that we're a very downstream fork, where all of our releases should be considered suitable for long-term support. So I'm going to plan on releasing the new client as version 2.0.
Overall, this is looking pretty good to me so far, although I haven't yet looked at what I'm grafting onto. Also, I don't have a setup to do a build. Once I get a draft bit of code (probably without all the text changes but just changing all of the core technical bits), I'll probably see whether I can rope someone into building this for me who already has the setup for it. If not, well, any self-respecting developer should be able to do their own builds anyhow; I'll figure it out.
The purpose of this new client is to prove that I can do it. There isn't a particular feature or immediate need that I'm aware of. But I think it's important to show we have this capability so that we can feel comfortable doing this whenever there is something we feel the need to pull in.
My next major technical task after completing this will be to produce an Android wallet for Nyancoins.
Cheers!
