Is there a forum post or website where all the altcoin networks.py settings are being shared? I can see the P2pool forks on Github where people commit their own networks.py settings back to their own repository but none are being merged back into the original forrestv/p2pool repository. For now, I am specifically searching for the Digibyte altcoin but would like to add the other altcoins later on as well.

I am talking about this part:

    SHARE_PERIOD=15, # seconds
    CHAIN_LENGTH=24*60*60//10, # shares
    REAL_CHAIN_LENGTH=24*60*60//10, # shares
    TARGET_LOOKBEHIND=200, # shares
    SPREAD=3, # blocks
    P2P_PORT=9 338,
    MAX_TARGET=2**256//2**20 - 1,
    BOOTSTRAP_ADDRS='...'.split(' '),
    VERSION_CHECK=lambda v: True,
    VERSION_WARNING=lambda v: 'Upgrade Litecoin to >=!' if v < 80501 else None,

And if none are being shared publicly, how do I edit the settings myself for the different altcoins?

  • github.com/TheBlueMatt/p2pool Have u seen this p2pool software, It has enhanced a few sets of features, Added extra alt coins... Using now runs the same as forrests p2pool but reduces stales & orphans.

  • We consider link only answers to be very low quality. It would be much better, if you posted your findings here as well.
