Bitmark Release v0.9.7.2

bitmark.conf file now accepts either 'miningalgo' or simply 'algo' to specifiy choice for mining.
Bump Network Protocol version to 70003 to facilitate distinction from pre-fork nodes.

8 Proof-of-Work Algorithms (8 mPoW)

{ SCrypt,   SHA256d,   Yescrypt,   Argon2d,   X17,   Lyra2REv2,   EquiHash,   CryptoNight }

Difficulty Adjustments: Dark Gravity Wave v3 (DGW v3)

Each PoW algorithm is governed by custom DGWv3 to balance mining difficulty to network hashrate.

  • "Surge Supressor" triples difficulty if 9 blocks in-a-row are produced by the same algo.
  • "Resurrector" slices difficulty by 1/3 if an algo has not contributed in 160 min.

Subsidy (Block Reward) varies according to Hash Rate

Reward variation by Coin Emission Modulation algorithm (CEM v0.1)
Modulates up to half of the block reward according to the ratio of currrent hashrate to peak hashrate.
50% of the block reward is scaled by the ratio (current_hr/peak_hr), the subsidy scaling factor (SSF),
where:

  • peak hashrate (peak_hr) is highest hashrate in last year and
  • current hashrate (current_hr) is hash rate for algo over last 90 blocks

90 blocks is the approximate daily output of blocks per algorithm. So, every 90 blocks (once a day), CEM looks back 365 of these 90 block periods to determine the highest hashrate for the algo in the past year, to use as the denominator of subsidy scaling factor (SSF). The numerator is the hashrate over the most recent 90 blocks, the current hashrate. This SSF is computed to determine the subsidy for that algo's next 90 blocks.

Program Binaries for principal OS's:

*Windows ( 64 & 32 bit )
*MacOS ( El Capitán and above )

*Linux / Ubuntu ( 16.04 LTS "Xenial Xerus", 18.04 "Bionic Beaver")
Note: binaries versions for both libsodium 23 (latest) and libsodium 18 (default for Ubuntu 16.04)
64b = 64 bit; .s = stripped of debug symbols (to reduce memory footprint)

Bitmark BlockChain: 'bootstrap.dat ' file up to block 471353

Place the bootstrap.dat file in your home directory:

Windows: C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Bitmark
Mac: /Users/<user>/Library/Application Support/Bitmark'
Linux: /home/<user>/.bitmark

Bitmark will automatically validate and import the "bootstrap.dat" file when it's placed in the data directory.
or can explicity ask to load from it when the node is run:

bitmarkd -loadblock=~/.bitmark/bootstrap.dat

Note: once it has been used, 'bootstrap.dat' will automatically be re-named 'bootstrap.dat.old'

This version of Bitmark Core aligns with Bitcoin 0.9.3, including post release updates.

It also includes Bitmark specific changes most notably the private key format has changed, a converter can be found at http://bitmark.co/brain to swap between old and new keys.

Existing wallets, and backups will continue to work as expected, only exported keys / cold storage keys need to be converted before import.

Updating

  • Download
  • Backup your wallet (File > Backup Wallet)
  • Close Bitmark
  • Run the installer / update
  • Open Bitmark

Major Changes

  • Private key version change to 213 to align with common third party tools.

Post Release Updates:

  • Make -proxy set all network types, avoiding a connect leak.
  • Refactor Alert to use static methods.

RPC:

  • Avoid a segfault on getblock if it can’t read a block from disk
  • Add paranoid return value checks in base58

Protocol and network code:

  • Don’t poll showmyip.com, it doesn’t exist anymore
  • Add a way to limit deserialized string lengths and use it
  • Increase IsStandard() scriptSig length
  • Avoid querying DNS seeds, if we have open connections
  • Remove a useless millisleep in socket handler
  • Stricter memory limits on CNode
  • Better orphan transaction handling
  • Add -maxorphantx= and -maxorphanblocks= options for control over the maximum orphan transactions and blocks

Wallet:

  • Check redeemScript size does not exceed 520 byte limit
  • Ignore (and warn about) too-long redeemScripts while loading wallet

GUI:

  • fix ‘opens in testnet mode when presented with a BIP-72 link with no fallback’
  • AvailableCoins: acquire cs_main mutex
  • Fix unicode character display on MacOSX

Miscellaneous:

  • key.cpp: fail with a friendlier message on missing ssl EC support
  • Remove bignum dependency for scripts
  • Upgrade OpenSSL to 1.0.1i (see https://www.openssl.org/news/secadv_20140806.txt - just to be sure, no critical issues for Bitmark Core)
  • Upgrade miniupnpc to 1.9.20140701
  • Fix boost detection in build system on some platforms

Building from source

Instructions for building can be found in the /doc/ section. If you are compiling for linux please be aware that the compilation process is different to most alternative currencies.

If building yourself please consider cloning the master branch of the repository so that you have the latest checkpoints.

Update Often - Miners/Pools/Exchanges
Checkpoints are updated every week before each Tuesday. If you self build please pull from the master branched once every week or two and rebuild to keep our network safe. Thank you.
