AnonCoin [ ANC ]

AnonCoin goal is to be used on both darknets like I2P, TOR and others, and internet/clearnet. At current moment it works with SOCKS over I2P/TOR. Native support to I2P should be in place soon. It's a scrypt based coin, forked from Litecoin but still got some nice features from other coins too. Not at least it's own twist of them.

- 3.42 minute block targets
- Starts with 4.2 coin blocks until block 42000
- 7 coin blocks until block 77777
- 5 coin blocks after 77778, then subsidy halves in 306600 blocks (~2 years)
- A limit on 4,2 Million coins
- Native I2P support (Anonymous darknet)

NOT Pre-mined (only ~1000 blocks, but most of it goes to the facuet)

Planned/In progress
- Android wallet, with a embedded mini I2P router for anonymous transactions

CasinoCoin [CSC] - The Premiere Coin for Online Casino Gaming

CasinoCoin: An open source, peer-to-peer digital currency specifically designed for online casino gaming

CasinoCoin was officially launched on Thursday, July 18th at 9:00PM EST with absolutely no premine.

Since April 15th, 2011, a day dubbed as 'Black Friday' by the online gaming community, it has become increasingly difficult to deposit funds for online casino gaming due to deposit restrictions between centralized financial institutions and online casino platforms. Avid online players have since not been able to enjoy the same conveniences and the ease of accessibility that they were once afforded. Those days are no more with the advent of CasinoCoin.

As a decentralized crypto currency, CasinoCoin offers the solution to help fill this void. Consider CasinoCoin as a universal casino chip that is easily transferable between online casino gaming applications, exchanges and peers. Imagine using CasinoCoin at your favorite online poker sites, then instantly transfer your winnings over to your favorite online casino to play Blackjack. How about a friendly wager over a game of chess? This is all possible with CasinoCoin.

CasinoCoin is an open source, peer-to-peer digital currency specifically designed for online casino gaming. It is a platform independent crypto currency that is easily transferable between gaming applications, exchanges and peers. CasinoCoin can simply be summed up as universal casino chips.

By itself, CasinoCoin has no value. Within casino gaming applications, it can be used to play games of skill and chance. On the exchanges, CasinoCoin is worth what the market values it at and it can be bought, sold and exchanged to fiat currencies such as US dollars or exchanged to other crypto currencies such as Bitcoin.

CasinoCoin is based on the strengths of crypto currency protocols such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, Feathercoin and digitalcoin, giving it a second movers advantage. It leverages the security of Bitcoin, the accessibility of Litecoin, the abundance of Feathercoin, and the speed of digitalcoin. While CasinoCoin can be used as a general purpose currency, it serves a specific purpose and is marketed exclusively for online casino gaming and rewards redemption.

Get active! Join the CasinoCoin community by visiting the links below.

Mission Statement
Central to the goal of CasinoCoin is to help make online casino gaming accessible to all by removing barriers. The success and strength of CasinoCoin rely on three main pillars: active and talented developers, fostering community, and trust through transparency.

Technical Specifications
scrypt proof-of-work algorithm
30 second block time targets
~336 million total coins
720 blocks to retarget difficulty
50 coins per block, halves every 3,153,600 blocks (~3 years)
fair launch, absolutely no premine

Community Support

Show your support by using the CasinoCoin logo as your avatar

Community support is vital to the growth and adoption of CasinoCoin. After much internal debate and discussion about whether to launch with or without a premine, it was decided that CasinoCoin will launch with a fair launch policy with absolutely no premine. By doing so, CasinoCoin will rely on the community for donations that will go towards further development, costs of hosting and servers, and bounties towards the growth of the CasinoCoin ecosystem. Trust through transparency is a cornerstone to CasinoCoin's mission statement -- launching with a premine like so many other unsuccessful alt-coins goes against this principle.


The CasinoCoin project is open to contributions from active and talented developers. Contact me if you would like to contribute your expertise.

[XPM] Primecoin High Performance Linux Compilation Guide

Tested with the following Linux distributions:
 - Ubuntu 13.04
 - CentOS 6.4

Step 1. Installing the required dependencies

Using apt-get with latest Ubuntu 13.04:
sudo apt-get install -y build-essential m4 libssl-dev libdb++-dev libboost-all-dev libminiupnpc-dev

The 'sudo' command requires you to type the password for the current user. If you don't have sudo working, you need to manually switch to root with 'su' before running those commands.

Warning: If you have installed a specific version such as libdb5.3++-dev before, then don't install the meta-package libdb++-dev which may pull a different version.

Alternative for CentOS users:
su -c 'yum install gcc-c++ m4 openssl-devel db4-devel boost-devel'

Step 2. Compiling GMP

Latest version supports all the new CPUs.

rm -rf gmp-5.1.2.tar.bz2 gmp-5.1.2
tar xjvf gmp-5.1.2.tar.bz2
cd gmp-5.1.2
./configure --enable-cxx
sudo make install

The configure script will attempt to automatically detect the host CPU and enable the best optimizations for it.

Step 2b. Compiling OpenSSL (for CentOS users)

This step is only required if you're using CentOS. Red Hat has removed support for elliptic curve cryptography from the OpenSSL it supplies.

rm -rf openssl-1.0.1e.tar.gz openssl-1.0.1e
tar xzvf openssl-1.0.1e.tar.gz
cd openssl-1.0.1e
./config shared --prefix=/usr/local --libdir=lib
sudo make install

Step 2c. Compiling miniupnpc (for CentOS users)

rm -rf miniupnpc-1.6.20120509.tar.gz
tar xzvf miniupnpc-1.6.20120509.tar.gz
cd miniupnpc-1.6.20120509
sudo INSTALLPREFIX=/usr/local make install

Step 3. Compiling primecoind

rm -rf primecoin-0.1.1-hp5.tar.bz2 primecoin-0.1.1-hp5
wget -O primecoin-0.1.1-hp5.tar.bz2
tar xjvf primecoin-0.1.1-hp5.tar.bz2
cd primecoin-0.1.1-hp5/src
sed -i -e 's/$(OPENSSL_INCLUDE_PATH))/$(OPENSSL_INCLUDE_PATH) \/usr\/local\/include)/' makefile.unix
sed -i -e 's/$(OPENSSL_LIB_PATH))/$(OPENSSL_LIB_PATH) \/usr\/local\/lib)/' makefile.unix
sed -i -e 's/$(LDHARDENING) $(LDFLAGS)/$(LDHARDENING) -Wl,-rpath,\/usr\/local\/lib $(LDFLAGS)/' makefile.unix
make -f makefile.unix
strip primecoind
sudo cp -f primecoind /usr/local/bin/

The last line will install the primecoind binary to /usr/local/bin.

CentOS users: Use the following 'make' command instead:
make -f makefile.unix BOOST_LIB_SUFFIX=-mt

Step 4. Configuration

Create a configuration file:

mkdir -p .primecoin
echo 'server=1
sievesize=1000000' > .primecoin/primecoin.conf
sed -i -e "s/SOME_SECURE_PASSWORD/`< /dev/urandom tr -cd '[:alnum:]' | head -c32`/" .primecoin/primecoin.conf

You may optinally customize the configuration file. The last line puts a random password in the configuration file automatically, so you don't need to change anything if you're only sending RPC commands from localhost.

Type these commands to create an auto-restart script:

echo '#!/bin/bash
killall --older-than 10s -q run-primecoind primecoind
function background_loop
        while :; do
                primecoind >/dev/null 2>&1
                sleep 1
background_loop &' > run-primecoind
chmod +x run-primecoind

CentOS users may want to remove the 'killall' command from this script because the version that comes with CentOS does not support the --older-than option.

And for convenience, create a stopping script:

echo '#!/bin/bash
killall -q run-primecoind
primecoind stop' > stop-primecoind
chmod +x stop-primecoind

Step 5. Starting mining

Simply type the following to start mining:

It will take a while for it to sync up with the network. The script will continue running in the background, automatically restarting primecoind if it crashes.

Step 6. Monitoring the progress

Checking that the primecoind process is runnning:
ps xuf |grep primecoind

RPC commands can be sent to the daemon like this:
primecoind getprimespersec
primecoind listtransactions
primecoind getinfo
primecoind getmininginfo
primecoind getdifficulty

Any combination of these can be used with the 'watch' command like this:
watch 'primecoind getinfo && primecoind listtransactions'

Press Ctrl + C to terminate the watch command.

You can also look at the output in debug.log:
grep primemeter ~/.primecoin/debug.log

If you want to see those in real-time, try this:
tail -f ~/.primecoin/debug.log |grep primemeter

Step 7. Stopping mining

Run the stop script:


[XPM] Working on a GPU miner for Primecoin !

I am working on an OpenCL GPU miner for Primecoin. I fully intend to release it open-source and for free when it's ready.

Where do I download it?

It's not ready yet, I've just started on July 18th. Donate 1 BTC or more and get early beta access a week before others! The address is in the bottom of this post. Thanks!

When will it be released?

If all goes well, there should be a closed beta on July 30th. The official release will be after a week or two of beta testing.

Why should I trust you?

I am the creator of the GPU miner Reaper. I was the first person to show that GPU mining Litecoins (i.e. scrypt) is possible and also a lot more efficient than on the CPU. I've made my own GPU miners for many coins, including Bitcoin, Litecoin and Yacoin, although not all of them have been released to the public. The Primecoin GPU miner will be free and open-source.

I am also a university math student, and I have made my own implementation of the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm used by Bitcoin (and all its forks) to make transactions. From scratch. (Yes, that includes my own bignum library.) I know a lot about algebra, prime numbers and such.

Why not CUDA?

CUDA is not cross-platform. It only works on Nvidia cards, but AMD cards are the ones with the best performance. OpenCL works on all GPUs.

What operating systems will the miner support?

Windows and Linux.

How fast is the miner going to be?

It is very difficult to say at this point. Some people have/had a bounty for a CUDA miner that is twice the speed of the CPU miner. I think that's definitely achievable.

Donate 1 BTC or more and get early beta access!

To fund the development of the miner, I would appreciate it if you could donate a sum of BTC, it will motivate me to work harder and faster, and thus you'll be able to enjoy the miner sooner. As an additional bonus, every donator of 1 BTC (100 XPM) or more gets early access to the beta version at least a week before the miner is officially released.
After donating, please sent email me the transaction ID [ Contact page ]or comment below, so that I know who has donated.

2. Mining

- Intall client.
Create a primecoin.conf in the following directory

->genproclimit is the x of threads to run. Use -1 for all threads/cores
Start mining automatic when you start PrimeCoin.exe.

- And another way :

Open Primecoin client---->Help----->Debug Windows----> Console

Type "setgenerate true"
No .conf file needed, you can also specify how many threads by instead typing "setgenerate true 8"
where 8 would be 8 threads, it could also be 2, 4, 6, 16 or whatever you want to make it.

3. Enjoy it

CraftCoin is a minecraft game currency that is portable from server to server.

For example: if you are playing a game on server "A" and have earned a large sum of money, but you now want to play on server "B" you can withdraw craftcoin from server "A" to server "B" instantly anywhere in the world. CraftCoin can also be sent player to player from inside the game, and outside of the game as well. The result is that YOU own your currency, in real life, not just in the game. CraftCoin is free for servers and players, to use, and it ALWAYS will be.

Features and benefits
--CraftCoin transfers are instant, both inside the game, and outside of the game.
--There is no charge to use CraftCoin. (regular network fees apply)
--CraftCoin is peer-to-peer and de-centralized.
--No more starting over and grinding to raise up money on a new server.
--Promotes true open markets.
--CraftCoins can be generated or "mined" with your computer in its spare time for free, then deposited onto your favorite server.
--CraftCoin is open source
--If you no longer need your CraftCoins, you can sell them, or give them away.
--Your CraftCoins are always under your control.
--Much much more, CraftCoin has the power to revolutionize Minecraft economies!


In preparation of the official plugin release here is the minecraft info:

We recommend MultiMC for your minecraft client. It supports multiple versions and manages mods well, however any minecraft client will work.

Check out the test server at
(this server may go up/down during testing phase)

There will be an IN-GAME CraftCoin giveaway announced shortly. This is your chance to get some FREE CRC, but you have to claim it in the minecraft server... so get ready!

Public Nodes
P2Pool nodes combine their local hash rates to the greater P2Pool hash rate. Use the one with the lowest ping to your miner or start your own local node. Switching between nodes maintains your PPLNS payout level.

Connection Example:
cgminer --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://pool.url:port -u YourWalletAddress -p fnord


Send CartmanSPC a PM so he can add you to the notify list of source code changes. Will update the source to p2pool version 13.1 soon. You do not need to make your local node public.


I'd like to clarify before anyone jumps in screaming about how it already has 7000+ block mined at the time of the BTCTalk announcement.

This coin was released to minecraft communities long before it has been announced here. We want the people the coin was really intended for to build up a strong network before we released it to the piranha tank that is btctalk. Yes, there has been premine, that will be going towards funding servers that adopt the currency.

Unfortunately, since jackjack announced his intent to create a coin of the same name, we've been forced to announce here earlier than planned. Hopefully things work out well.

Argentum is new coin .

Definition: Argentum is the Latin name for the element silver. Silver is a chemical element with the chemical symbol Ag (Greek: άργυρος árguros, Latin: argentum, both from the Indo-European root *arg- for "grey" or "shining") and atomic number 47.

It is the perfect name to represent this currency and the potential it has with a dedicated development team. Argentum is fast, unique, and secure. We have learned from many of the past crypto-currencies and created one that can rival any. Argentum brings innovation and experimentation that pushes the limits.

Get Started


-Optimized client
-Achieved 0% orphans for extended periods of time during testing in perfect conditions (currently achieving close to the same on pools). Orphans waste energy and that's why we have eliminated them.

-Maximum block size increased to 10mb
-Maximum signature operations per block maximum increased to 100k
-32 Second block time

The first two features are on the bitcoin hardfork wishlist. We wanted to create the first cryptographic currency with almost unlimited scalability. The signature operations per block were not increased as much as block size because it is unnecessary and theoretically unreachable as is. These capacity increases do not affect performance and only serve as a guarantee of the network's future capacity. The actual size of blocks and transactions is the minimum amount needed to accomplish the task.

-Re-targets every 250 blocks

Currency Creation
64 million total ARG. Once this limit is reached, it is increased by 1.1% annually, the rate of human population growth.

Fair launch:
We opted for a fair launch to let everyone start mining at the same time.

Block 0-500: 0 ARG
Block 500-1000: 1 ARG
Block 1000-1500: 2 ARG
Block 1500+: block reward random from 1-5. This sort of configuration is more realistic and adds additional security to the network by adding more variability. It also discourages difficulty hopping.

Random block rewards: Rewards are not completely random but deterministic random. Argentum uses the last block hash as a seed to generate a "random" number. The same number always results from a given seed so the network will stay synced.

-Mined blocks mature after 30 confirms: Argentum is a fast currency but it does not compromise the safety of the blockchain in the process.

Listen port: 13580
RPC PORT: 13581

You can either solo mine or mine in a pool.

1. Launch the wallet after following the setup guide above
2. Configure your miner to connect to your local IP (Examples: 192.168.x.x:13581, 127.0.0.x:13581) using your RPC details.
3. Launch your miner.
    Example:  Example: cgminer.exe -–scrypt -o LOCALIP -u RPCUSERNAME -p RPCPASSWORD

1. Create an account at a pool. It is not necessary for P2pool as you will use your ARG address to receive payment.
2. Create a worker if you are not on a P2pool.
2. Launch your miner
    Example: cgminer.exe -–scrypt -o POOL.COM -u POOL.USERNAME -p POOLPASSWORD
    Example P2pool: cgminer.exe --scrypt -o P2POOL.COM -u ARGENTUMADDRESS -p ANYTHING





Mining PrimeCoin using DigitalOcean (VPS)

I'd like to quickly write up what Vorksholk suggested. It has been working better than EC2 for me. If you sign up please use my referral link below. I take no responsibility for your results or the security of this arrangement! Usually I would suggest not using root for anything, but hey, time's a wastin'!

1) Go to DigitalOcean and sign up for an account.

2) Use this code for a free $10 credit on Ubuntu instances: Get Here

3) Create an Ubuntu 13.04 x64 droplet for $.007/hr. That's $5 a month so you should be able to run 2 instances for a month with little risk.

4) You will be emailed an ip address and password. SSH into your new VM.
Read more :

To get the latest primecoin miner you need to build from source, below. When a new binary is posted I will link to it here.

5) Download primecoind from sourceforge, you may have to find a new link but this works for now:

wget -O primecoind-0.1.0-linux.tar.gz ""
tar -zxvf primecoind-0.1.0-linux.tar.gz
mv primecoin-0.1.0-linux/bin/64/primecoind /usr/local/bin/.

6) Set up your primecoin.conf.

mkdir ~/.primecoin
echo "rpcuser=yourusername
gen=1" > ~/.primecoin/primecoin.conf

7) Now you can start mining!
primecoind --daemon

 To keep an eye on the fruits of your labors you can use the watch command. This will show you your primespersec and if you find a block.

watch 'primecoind listtransactions & primecoind getmininginfo'

FYI, signing up for multiple accounts using the same info is against their terms of service. If you do this you may have your account removed by DigitalOcean and lose access to any coins you've mined.

Today's update vastly improves mining. I'm getting up to 200 on the smallest instance, the large instance gets 1500+, I built it like this on the large instance.

apt-get install git
git clone
apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev libboost-all-dev libdb5.3++-dev -y
cd ~/primecoin/src 
make -f makefile.unix USE_UPNP=-
mkdir ~/.primecoin
echo "rpcuser=UserName
gen=1" > ~/.primecoin/primecoin.conf
sudo mv primecoind /usr/local/bin/.
primecoind --daemon
watch 'primecoind listtransactions & primecoind getmininginfo'

Getting coins to another wallet:

There are a number of ways to do this:

After they've matured:

primecoind sendtoaddress address amount

Show address
primecoind getaccountaddress <your rpcuser>

Show amount:
primecoind getinfo

Show speed:
primecoind getmininginfo

Before they've matured:
from vps:
primecoind listtransactions # to find the receiving address
primecoind dumpprivkey $receiving_address

from home:
primecoind importprivkey $privkey_from_vps

I then remove the wallet.dat from the vps to get all new keys, though its not necessary.
