Mining / Re: New Biblepay Mining Pool by Hanalani Schools
« Last post by DeckardLain on September 29, 2022, 03:15:05 PM »
Just want to update everyone on some pool updates that were mostly prompted by things I noticed after switching our XMR pool to supportxmr.com.

Error: Unauthenticated
If you've occasionally seen an "Unauthenticated" error in your miner, that's coming from supportxmr, and based on my observation, it appears that the XMR pool is forgetting about your miner, possibly because it hasn't submitted a share in a while.  The problem is, when supportxmr forgets your miner, they still send new jobs and keep the connection open, so you keep mining away, wasting hash power because the next share you find doesn't get credited by either the XMR or BBP pool.  The BBP pool still checks to see if solves a BBP block, but the shares won't get credited because we rely on share validation from the XMR pool.

To mitigate this, our pool now has a share timeout of around 7 minutes, so if it's been 7 minutes since we got a share from your miner, we'll disconnect it.  XMRig should reconnect within seconds and resume mining.  This seems to have eliminated 95%+ of the Unauthenticated errors.  Supportxmr creates jobs with difficulty targeted to 1 share per minute, so this should happen only in periods of bad share luck, sudden decreases in hashrate, or slow miners that get less than 1 share per minute at the minimum diff of 50,000 (<800H/s).

Pool Error Messages
Speaking of error messages, our pool now sends error messages back to miners for things like invalid configurations and timeouts like the one mentioned above.  Previously, the pool would just disconnect the miner, and you wouldn't know why.

IP Address currently banned
If you've seen the error message "IP Address currently banned for using an invalid mining protocol, please check your miner" come up randomly, this error is also coming from supportxmr.  Your IP address is not banned; it's the pool's IP that's banned because all connections to supportxmr are coming from the BBP pool server.  That means that any one of our miners can cause the pool IP to be banned.

Thankfully, supportxmr has multiple servers, and each miner that connects to our pool creates a new connection to a randomly assigned supportxmr pool server.  When supportxmr bans our IP, it seems that it doesn't communicate the ban to their other servers (at least not right away), so they don't disconnect all of our miners.  Also, after you get disconnected, your miner will retry until it gets a connection to a supportxmr server that doesn't have us banned.

I believe the bans get cleared after around 10 minutes, so they don't last long.  Nevertheless, the disconnects and retries when this happens results in a noticeable reduction in mining efficiency.  In our supportxmr stats, I saw dips of ~25% at times.

I finally had a chance to do some logging to investigate further, and the bans seem to be occurring after several "Duplicate share" errors reported by supportxmr.  Because these bans from supportxmr affect all Hanalani pool miners, we now temporarily ban any IP that gets this duplicate share error from supportxmr.

If we have your IP currently banned, you'll see this error message: "IP address currently banned, please check your miner", which is slightly different from supportxmr's message.  Feel free to post, PM, or email me if you are banned, and we can work together to figure out what's happening and try to fix it.

I'll be monitoring the logs closely over the next weeks/months and making adjustments as necessary.

Thank you for your continued support!

BiblePay Current Discussion / Anyone know what is going on now?
« Last post by Christblood on September 21, 2022, 11:52:10 AM »
Wallet is not syncing, and doesn't look like Rob has signed in for a couple of weeks.

I don't see any team answering questions about the fact the wallet seems to have no connections.

Production Proposals / October 2022 Cameroon One Orphan Expenses
« Last post by Rob Andrews on September 21, 2022, 07:07:46 AM »
We are transitioning back to Monthly governance proposals (from POOS).

We currently sponsor 35 orphans from cameroon-one, but our monthly budget will not cover the entire portfolio.

I am seeking 12MM bbp (approx $1000) which should cover approx 25 orphans of our 35.

General Support / Wallet is not syncing
« Last post by Christblood on September 17, 2022, 12:43:00 PM »
Greetings,

I have Biblepay on a Mac and since I'm a windows user I do not use the Mac as much.  It's strange that so much time has passed since I ran the wallet.

I love this project just have staked about 25 other coins and only about 5 have been worthwhile to this day.  About 5 others are still going but not that great.

So, I booted up the Mac with a commitment to keep it going and found that after about a day Bible pay is still not sync'd.  I looked in the Repair Wallet function
and was going to try one of those but thought I would check here first.

I was reading about the new upcoming RSS3 standard and I found it to be pretty interesting:
https://cointelegraph.com/news/rss3-aims-to-be-the-decentralized-information-processor-of-web3

One implementation of it:
https://github.com/NaturalSelectionLabs/RSS3-Protocol/blob/main/README.md
Spec:
https://docs.rss3.io/assets/RSS3-Whitepaper.pdf


I'm going to look into this; it would be very interesting to be able to collaborate with other aligned web3 leaders and share Users, Social Media posts and Christian content amongst like minded chain services and sites.

Announcements & Fundraisers / Re: Third fundraiser for Water Wells in Pakistan
« Last post by Rob Andrews on September 10, 2022, 06:51:01 PM »
I followed up with the wells progress on September 10th, 2022.

Due to flooding in the area, progress has stalled.

From Sonny:

I hope you’re doing well. First and foremost I want to thank you for your consistent support that has changed so many lives.  I recognize you and your community are frequent donors so wanted to personally apologize for the delay.

Unfortunately, as of mid August 1/3 of the country has been subject to floods which has impacted our building timelines.

As of now, the tentative plan is to wait a few more weeks for the floods to clear out so we can begin digging again.

If you have any more questions, happy to answer as best as I can.

Hello brethren,
As hope for orphans center we seeking for your support to help the kids on the need for food and school supplies. The government promised they could be of help but all in vain. As for now we don't have enough food to take care for the children. As the Lord provides you can help through  south exchange depositing : BMqkugTgJdEXMZa7uTxdPFsAbQTrMkqSSc
May the Lord bless you all as we look forward for a hand to help them.

(Rob is currently covering the difference).

This proposal is for the September expenses.
I am seeking 12.8MM bbp (approx $500) which should cover approx 13 orphans of our 35.
