Only 900 Blocks to go. Now or never ;)
done - redesign of CF html
done - passphrase save / load
done - mobile friendly version of wallet
I started to develop a solution for Android Phones and Tablets; check my twitter for pictures. ARM Architecture and mobile operating systems are the future and we should be one step ahead of other coins. Burst’s efficiency fits perfectly for mobile devices. First release will have a passphrase save and load function and faucet. In later release there will be plotting and mining available for Android, so everybody in the world can be part of the network - mining Burst and use it.
Burst mining favors small miners by design and keeps the networks truly decentralized.
To release ASAP the first version and get mining and plotting to work on android later I asked fellow developers to join and help me out - and for THEM is this Crowdfund. I'm stuck and with 2 other devs I know we can develop a solution a lot faster and better - and we get them on board for further projects!
Thank you for your support so far! Small contributions are welcome, too.
Update: Due to rise of Burst price we'll add more functions than planned to the Android App and Main Wallet:
Try to use and configure the stand-alone version of jminer. Maybe you'll find the problem.
Crowdfunding on BURST
Quickstart manual by @AltSheets
--- preparations for first time users; experienced users skip to (7) ---
(1) download & unpack "Burst_Windows_Client_Portable_0.2.2.zip"
(2) download & unpack (into the aboveFolder\burst_db\ ) the blockchain
(3) start Burst_Wallet.exe OR start
aboveFolder\run.bat and open http://localhost:8125/ in your browser.
(4) Generate new, store passphrase in a supersecret place.
Treat your passphrase safer than money, it equals your private keys.
Login. Logout. Login. Still the same BURST-... address? Good.
(5) Dashboard --> Recent blocks --> wait until fully synced.
(6) Get initial BURST from (faucet / poloniex bittrex ccex / friends / ... );
sent to your BURST-... address. For 1st TX you need PUBLIC KEY also.
--- preparations done, now you can e.g. buy assets - or get crowdfunded: ---
(7) "Burst Windows Client v0.2.2" ... Menu ... Crowdfunding ...
OR http://localhost:8125/atcrowdfund.html in your browser.
(8 ) Active/Funded - study the existing ones.
Ideally, help funding an "Active" one first, to see what happens.
Your contribution appears in wallet --> Transactions as "Ordinary Payment".
(9) Press "+New Project", fill in your details.
Name: no spaces, no "non-standard" chars.
Password: is your secret passphrase from (4).
The "AT Creation" will cost you 10 BURST.
Press "Deploy AT", and WAIT. Can take long!
If "Transaction has been processed successfully" appears, all is good.
(10) See wallet --> Transactions, when confirmed your project appears on
http://localhost:8125/atcrowdfund.html - now you can start marketing it.
The time period starts running when the first 7 BURST have been pledged.
Then you can use AltSheets' neat countdown image service ChainCountDown.
Good luck with your crowdfunding projects
Thanks to altsheets for this great manual! :-)
The newer version of the Windows Client has two mining buttons. One is for GPU assisted mining. It's called "Start Mining (beta)" and is explained to use GPU with openCL.
@luxe You're welcome and updating it is the least I can do. You developed it. All thanks to you.
The local and online wallet won't open because your Internet Explorer is really old. Maybe you can update your IE but with Windows Vista (which is from beginning of 2007) maybe it's not possible.
The other errors you get are probably because of the GUIs dependencies to Windows functions that aren't supported with Vista..
A workaround for you would be to download the portable .zip version of the wallet from my git and start Burst with run_java_autodetect.bat and then open the wallet in a modern browser like chrome or firefox with https://localhost:8125/
@luxe It starts openCL 1.2 context.
It works nicely after I corrected your typo in your post:
java -jar -d64 -XX:+UseG1GC burstcoin-jminer-0.4.2-RELEASE.jar
it should be SNAPSHOT. Then it runs :)
How to plot and mine on your phone (Linux experience is helpful)
The software is ported from dcct_tools.
The port is alpha, there are many bugs. Please share your experience.
The directory on SD Card have to be writeable and due to Androids permission policy it has to be the /com.termux/ directory!
here are the binaries... I tested it with bananaPi. It should work for you.
Tell me your results!
Optimizing is not necessary for you now...because you have a rather small plot.
You will appear there sooner or later but I recommend you to plot more space to get a steady stream of Burst. 200 GB should be a good start.
./plot -k KEY [-d DIRECTORY] [-s STARTNONCE] [-n NONCES] [-m STAGGERSIZE] [-t THREADS]
-KEY is your Burst-Numeric-Address. An example:
startnonce at 0, around 200 GB of diskspace, 1 GB of memory and 2 threads:
./plot -k 123456789012345 -d /root/plotdir/ -s 0 -n 800000 -m 4096 -t 2
I had also problems compiling for ARM. I contacted the dev but no response so far.
Well, I setup a Banana Pi (M1 - oldest version) with urays miner and it reads 1 TB plots in 12 seconds! So 4 TB are possible in 48 seconds.
The newer raspberry 2 has 4 cores that are faster or the newest Banana Pi (M3) has 8 cores.... so there is much potential.
Problem is that my port of urays miner for ARM is flawed... it reads the plots but calculates something wrong... Deadline is way to high (corrupted). I'm trying to find a solution or someone more clever.
