Re: Software upate service

That's a great idea. But doesn't it provide those as a string, and since every daemon has a different string, there's no way to easily compare them? Simply not equal might be sufficient. If it is not the same as when run yesterday, someone should look. The false alarm rate should be low. The proble...

Re: Cardano/ADA Staking Pool

Are you refering to a Master Node for Proof of Stake? If so, the Master Node needs to hold a set amount of tokens/coins in order to be activated.

Re: Updates on algorithms

If Monero did fork, I think that's a sign that we should be focusing on the core algorithms of scrypt, equihash, x11, and SHA-256. After thousands of dollars spent on version 8, I don't know how we can keep up with this. I have been thinking about this quote. If one looks at the market, these algor...

Re: Software upate service

I hope you find such a service. It is unreasonable to expect you to monitor 1000's of feeds for upcoming changes.

Re: How do zero-fee pools continue operations?

I don't see how a pool even with 1% fees can earn any money. Does anyone have any idea why there are so many pools operating without charging anything? While I have not done exhaustive research, I did look at this back when I started. The answer was they don't. They might have one product that had ...

Re: Status as of Tuesday, March 5, 2019

That something specific occurred, within the past 10 days, that changed conditions for SHA-256.
