✔️ Monero

  • Successfully forked on April 6, block height 1546000.
  • Miners v2.5+ will switch PoW automatically no additional setup or miner restart required.
  • Test pool http://killallasics.moneroworld.com/
  • Previous issue #434 with more Monero related details.

🕔 Aeon

✔️ Sumokoin

  • Successfully forked at block height 116520.
  • Sumokoin will use new algorithm named Cryptonight-Heavy, currently only CPU and AMD miner (v2.6.0-beta1) support it.
  • Manual action required, algo option should changed to cryptonight-heavy and threads count should reduced twice (for CPU miners).
  • More details in #476

✔️ Turtlecoin

✔️ Stellite

✔️ GRAFT

  • Successfully forked at block height 65110.
  • Manual action required now due version conflict #434 (comment)
  • Manual action required, if you was change variant option, on each GRAFT pool option variant should set to 1 or -1.

✔️ Haven Protocol

  • Successfully forked.
  • Manual action required, algo option should changed to cryptonight-heavy and threads count should reduced twice, only v2.6+ support it.

✔️ IPBC

  • Successfully forked on April 16 at block height 54881.
  • Manual action will required, algo option should changed to cryptonight-ipbc
  • Support status: Pending.

🕔 Masari

  • Estimated date: May 1, at block height 170000.
  • Manual action required, on each Masari pool option variant should set to 1 after the fork.

@2010phenix thank you, I will update info later, according their github, will be used Monero v7 PoW graft-project/GraftNetwork#100
@esfomeado It just a new difficulty algorithm, not a new PoW, this change not directly affect miners.

Sumokoin
‏ @sumokoin

Due to recent network's hashrate high fluctuations (our best guess is ASICs trying to get their last blocks) stalling the network, we decided to bring the fork's blockheight closer at block 116520. Binaries will be released shortly.
Thank you

You shares will be rejected by pool, you can continue use older versions only for coins which not change PoW yet.

I have a Ryzen 1700 Cpu. Tried on Sumokoin and works only on 4 threads ~230 H/s If I configure Json to use 8 Threads it works only with ~130 H/s. Any idea what settings to use to work normally ~500H/s?

@DuyQuang06 Thank you for link.
@DrStein99 Now I'm confused how name this thing, maybe cryptonight-ipbc or cryptonight-v7-jumbo-crazy, because just variant not enough... 4 MB scratchpad.
@ipbc-dev Reward most crazy PoW change now moved from Sumokoin to you.

@telebog No it not possible, it new heavy algorithm.

For reference i7-4770 original hashrate 300 H/s (4 threads) new is 136 H/s (2 threads). New algorithm specially designed to hurt CPUs hashrate. CPU vs GPU balance changed to prefer GPU mining. Scratchpad size is not main reason for such low hashrate, main loop length reduced twice, main reason is thing named half-step with additional memory access in main loop. If simple remove this half-step for test, hashrate is 237 H/s, but of course it make invalid hashes.

Call it cryptonight ultraheavy ?

We have forked your repo and implemented the new algo, CPU, AMD and Nvidia are working, we are testing and optimizing it, when we are done we can do a pull request.

@Sayyiditow You should use only version v2.6.0-beta1 for it, I was checked mine Haven, it works.
@ipbc-dev I think cryptonight-ipbc is good, pull request would be nice, please use dev branch for it.
Thank you.

Manual action required, algo option should changed to cryptonight-heavy and threads count should reduced twice.

Can intensity be halved and keep same # of threads?

OLD

    "threads": [
        { "index": 0,  "intensity": 1920, "worksize": 8, "affine_to_cpu": false },
        { "index": 0,  "intensity": 1600, "worksize": 8, "affine_to_cpu": false },
    ],

NEW

    "threads": [
        { "index": 0,  "intensity": 960, "worksize": 8, "affine_to_cpu": false },
        { "index": 0,  "intensity": 800, "worksize": 8, "affine_to_cpu": false },
    ],

OR is this required?

    "threads": [
        { "index": 0,  "intensity": 1920, "worksize": 8, "affine_to_cpu": false },
    ],

Or does it matter?

xmrig commented Apr 6, 2018

@rhlug it related only to CPU miners and it was written when only CPU version was available, so if you was run 2 threads you should run 2 too, but about intensity no need reduce it twice, optimal values should be above 1000 but lesser previous intensity, only experimenting may suggest you now.
Thank you.

PATCH 1.1.1 HAS BEEN RELEASED – MAJOR NETWORK UPDATE ON BLOCK 65110
We decided to make the major network update sooner in order to minimize the possibility of hashrate attacks. Patch version 1.1.1 is now released and available for download from master. The major network update itself is rescheduled for block height 65110, around April 14th.

ETN is just playing with the devil now, the network is at 650 MH/s and the fan boys are saying that ASIC miners are fine as the team keeps struggling to fork and become ASIC resistant. It’s a blind trusting.

almost all coin use or monero v7 clean, or option variant should set to 1
maybe OLD monero change to variant 1 and all other new-NEW-nEW altcoin simple work with autodetect or we can't detect?

@xmrig

Owner

xmrig commented Apr 26, 2018

variant should set to 1, autodetection is useless since all other coins use block version below 7, except GRAFT, but actually good idea change default to 1 sometime later. I think you already saw xmrig/xmrig-proxy#168 it allow pool explicitly inform miner about what exactly algorithm needed.

Now cryptonight-lite has 3 possible variants and cryptonight will have 3 variants soon, total 7 algorithms now.

2010phenix commented Apr 27, 2018

@xmrig Yes for proxy very good and simple idea send variant and algo data and even more, no other solution....
but look on miner, we have already programmable algo-Terminator )) , demand more and more time for you(with not clarify itself algo Devs) and for ppl who used xmrig..
autodetect all this things(most like new algo fork from monero) solve and save time.

@MoneroOcean us say xmrig detect be in 2.6 stable master (for now only beta)

if (algorithm.isValid()) {

}
else {
LOG_ERR("Unknown/unsupported algorithm detected, reconnect");
}

No algorithm switching 😂 only for variant.
@xmrig Do you plan to make algo switch (lite, normal, heavy) in the future ? Scratchpad size issue ?
