Make rieMiner competitive for breaking world records #19
Right now, rieMiner is optimized for 6-tuples mining, but I am not sure if we can efficiently use the Benchmark Mode to break any current record, even the 6-tuple one. It also is fairly inefficient for other tuple sizes.
Rockhawk himself said
I am donating 5000 RIC for anyone that writes elegant code for a fourth mode (with Solo/Pool/Benchmark) that can be used to beat new records for different tuple lengths and makes rieMiner a reference software for prime constellation finding.
If that person also beats any current world record with such new implementation, I double the bounty.
I measured that we would currently need 2-2.5 years in average with a 2700X to find a block at Difficulty 3600 (which would beat the current 6-tuples world record), using the Benchmark Mode. If there is some way to reduce this value to 1 year or less, it will clearly be eligible for the bounty. This would become a reasonable ~3 months for a 32 Cores CPU.
Bounty valid until March 31. After this point, it will be halved to 2500 RIC and valid until end 2019.
