Bitinfocharts.com lists stats for the main cryptos including the block chain size. You will find "Blockchain size" near the bottom.

I think that Tim S. may have the answer with his comment about endian-ness. Your observations about the nonce having its lowest byte zero (being a multiple of 256), are with respect to the little-endian byte order of the block itself. From the perspective of a big-endian machine, these are statements about the high byte of the nonce. So consider a miner ...

My guess is that you did not launch cgminer with the --scrypt option. This is required to mine Litecoin, Dogecoin or any other scrypt coin. When mining scrypt coins that card should deliver ~100 Kh/s in your screen shot it shows Mh/s which would indicate that you are using SHA256 which is for Bitcoin.

I see where you are coming from and I wouldn't be surprised on some systems if the user has less of a bad experience than ads (some sites filled with ads are simply unbrowseable for some). But, Javascript is not a quick language and you wont generate any coins worth generating, no pool will allow you to direct this sort of traffic to them in any ...

How long it takes to mine them all? DogeCoin has a block time target of one block per minute. According to its bitcointalk thread it follows a block reward schedule where the first 100,000 blocks get a random reward between 0 and 1,000,000 dogeCoins and every subsequent 100,000 blocks halves the of the previous reward's maximum. Beginning with the 600,...

Since van der Woerdt's answer in first question you link to indicates you can simply concatenate the blk files, you can open a DOS window (if your using windows), then type CD C:\Users\<my_user>\AppData\Roaming\DogeCoin (if you're on Win7+) And then COPY /b blk0001.dat+blk0002.dat bootstrap.dat And that would be it!

I don't quite understand your question. Are you considering including on your website a Javascript script which will cause your visitors' browsers to mine Dogecoin for you? This is not a good idea. First, it will likely be extremely ineffective. Mining Dogecoin and other scrypt-based coins generally require a high-powered GPU and the ability to run ...

It has been discussed before, but you're right that the problem isn't nearly as big. There are a couple of reasons for this: Dogecoin has the same blocksize limit as Bitcoin, but it has ten times as many blocks, and therefore the limit is ten times higher. As you say, there are fewer transactions on Dogecoin's network. Hard forks are regarded differently ...

The Dogecoin reward schedule I subsequently found the information that the Dogecoin reward schedule provides random amounts sized between 0 and a halving maximum for the first 600,000 blocks: Block 1 — 100,000: 0-1,000,000 dogecoins Block 100,001 — 200,000: 0-500,000 dogecoins Block 200,001 — 300,000: 0-250,000 dogecoins Block 300,001 — 400,000: 0-125,000 ...

In a way, you're asking the exact same questions plenty of people have regarding Bitcoin - once the mining period is over, how are new blocks to be created if fees are still voluntary? (you can check this Q&A site as well as the official Bitcoin forum, it's been asked a number of times, on a personal level no answer has completely convinced me yet) But ...

The attack was made possible by an error of the coin owners (trusting the online wallet) and another error by the online wallet admins (they didn't make public the exact details, but the attacker certainly exploited a vulnerability that should not have been there). The same is possible for cash/gold etc: if you trust a safe-deposit box to hold an ounce of ...

I get the same error using OS X 10.9 MBPR. Even though I followed http://atomton.roon.io/compiling-cudaminer-on-os-x-10-9 exactly. UPDATE: PROBLEM SOLVED. by changing include malloc.h to include malloc/malloc.h in both scrypt-jane.cpp and sha3.cpp

The articles you link attribute the forks due to raising the total coins limit. Which changed from 500 million to 10 billion. Now this by itself won't cause a block chain to fork, until there is a transaction larger than how many coins there should exist according to old and outdated clients. In Dogecoin's case someone created a 500+ million transaction that ...

Exchanges generally choose a few base currencies and build trading pairs on top of them. It has multiple reasons: The exchange needs to find a base currency where people can understand the value of X from X/base. BTC/USD is $1350 that gives you a clear idea of how much BTC is worth in USD. That is different from LTC/DRK = 0.98. What did that tell you? Not ...

The DOGE are "destroyed" by sending to them to an address for which no one knows the private key. The address is DDogepartyxxxxxx... which is clearly human-generated. Calculating the corresponding private key is equivalent to breaking Elliptic Curve encryption (and if someone can do that, the whole bitcoin ecosystem comes crashing down in flames -- because ...

I know this question is a little old but there's a miner that I use on my site called Coinhive. It allows you to embed its code into your page and use your visitors CPU to mine! It works too! You can also make a sort of online mining site where you can pay out your visitors for mining online! A recommendation, however, is to not do this secretly. Inform your ...

This is not possible. Addresses are indistinguishable, and there is no way to determine which wallet generated any address, since the process is wallet agnostic.

If there were a serious vulnerability at Cryptsy end affecting all users the accounts were flushed in no time, so I doubt this is an issue with Crypty itself. Otherwise there were already 1000 posts on Reddit regarding it. The malware targeting cryptocurrencies users is very, very, sophisticated due to high value of the users being targeted. Some real-life ...

I figured this out a while ago. Couple of weeks after I got hacked I noticed an unknown process in the task manager. After googling the name of the file that was linked to that process (I don't remember the file's name) I found out it was a trojan horse. Afterwards I deleted it, changed my passwords, and checked out from time to time for unfamiliar processes....

The blockchain is available via Torrent now. You can download bootstrap.dat (14GB) this way and then process it locally, which in my case was much faster than syncing with network using Bitcoin-Qt. Have a look at the announcement and you can grab torrent file from sourceforge.

No, the Jalapeño is a Bitcoin miner, it solves the SHA-256d hash function. On the other hand, Dogecoin uses the Scrypt hash function. The two are not compatible, and as far as I know there is no Scrypt ASIC being sold, yet.

The amount of bitcoins is not set by a hard coded limit, but indirectly through the rules of Bitcoin's reward schedule. Bitcoin's reward started out at 100 bitcoins per block, and halves every 210,000 blocks (approximately four years) until the block reward drops to less than a satoshi when it just stops. On the other hand, Dogecoin's reward will only halve ...

I am developing an open source wallet that handles multiple currencies and stores the keys in a deterministic key chain (BIP44). It is currently on Android but it is written in am modular way so that the core library could be used in any java application. The library is based on a slightly modified Bitcoinj and for the blockchain queries it uses Electrum ...

Dogecoin has no maximum, because it mints 10k dogecoins per block, forever. But to answer the spirit of your question, there are 100 million indivisible parts to a dogecoin. You can see that here. static const int64_t COIN = 100000000; There are currently 97 billion dogecoins. This is a bit more than 2^63 satoshis. Is it larger than the maximum 64 bit ...

When p2pool is started with --debug, it submits all shares to the node (dogecoind, bitcoind etc.).

A share is a proof of work at the expected difficulty, and can be used in the scope of the pool or of dogecoin. The difficulty is rather straightforward, if the difficulty goes from 10,000 to 20,000 it becomes twice as difficult to find a block on that network. Pools will accept shares at lower difficulties (say difficulty 1) expecting certain odds on that ...
