Support and Troubleshooting / Re: Purepool Support
« on: May 18, 2018, 01:52:19 pm »
If you are taking enhancement requests, I'd be curious to see who the block finder for blocks on purepool are. Also, stats on which addresses find the most blocks on purepool. You know, the typical pool stats that is somewhat useful. I'm most curious though about found blocks as a ratio of pool hash power. I seem to get paid a little more than proportional of my hash rate if I throw more hash power at purepool, but that's just my guess. Having the stats would prove helpful.

Hi :)

Right now, the amount of shares/solutions mirrors quite good the amount of blocks found. This was not always the case, but with a lot of tweeking and help of Rob, the Pool is enforcing the same rules as the biblepay client for the submitted shares/solutions, and it works good.

But I will add it to the todo, but right now, my next goal is to improve biblepay-central more :)

Yes, I assigned the wallet to Rosetta on March 12 2018 and it's been successfully mining BOINC since then.

When I try to reassign it in "Add Me As A Distributed Computer Researcher" I get "ALREADY_IN_CHAIN."

My controller wallet shows a CPID, is staked, etc. This wallet doesn't show a CPID, plus it only has 10 BBP.

Edit: Just checked miner stats at:

this is new ..
List of errors related to your miner in the last 24h
Errormessage    Worker    Count
Invalid_CPID    Default    1
Invalid_CPID    TASAcer    1

Not sure if I understand what you are doing there :)
You have multiple different wallets? Or are these copies of the same wallet? If yes, please copy the wallet after you assigned the CPID.
What you can not do: Have multiple different wallets with the same CPID at the same time.  Did you tried this?

Also, I registered this miner a few days ago but still no statistics ..

Here's the biblepay.conf file ...

I don't know if it makes a difference, but BOINC is running on the same machine.

Thanks in advance!

Hi zTomasz,

I just checked your submitted solutions, I get the error: 'cpid_sig_valid': False
Something must be wrong with the cpid. Not sure what might be the reasos for that.

Can you post the full output of "exec getboincinfo"? thx :)

Hi Lichtsucher, me and another miner having a problem with Purepool. Basically, everything works, but the pool wouldn't show any miner statistics. Please visit this thread:
Hopefully, we'll find the solution

Hi GoodDeed,

the pool required a valid CPID with magnitude and payment in the last superblock (if I remember the check in the client right, this is checked in the biblepay client itself).

In your thread, it looked like this:
Total Payments (One Day): 0
Total Payments (One Week): 0
Magnitude (One-Day): 0
Magnitude (One-Week): 0

This would prevent you from working on the pool, as it would mean that you could not solve blocks.
I would need your CPID for any more checks.

Thanks Lictsucher!

I would like to know the best way to configure multiple linux & windows miners for the pool. Should each one use their own receiving address, or is there a way to have all BBP sent to one main address?

Hi zthomasz,

you can use one receiving address for all miners. Important: If you want to use the same CPID, copy the wallet.dat to all maschines. But remember that this means that the wallet is available on all systems, so better have a cold-wallet with your not-stacked coins somewhere else :)
You can also have different wallets for every pc, but then you need a working PoDC work for every one of them, with different CPIDs.

Hi everybody,

I started this Thread for all support questions related to Purepool, it will be linked in the pool.
Feel free to ask any question you have.


Dear Sanctuary owners, Dear Forum users,

we had seem some awesome new things for Biblepay in the last days, like the upcoming Biblepay Mobile Wallet, which looks fantastic. It is great to know that Biblepay is still so powerful and alive. My own work is a little bit smaller this time, and not as great as the Mobile Wallet, but I still hope that it is part of the overall movement to make Biblepay great.
Again I choosed to send in a combined proposal, at it seems a lot easier to handle than multiple smaller proposals, I hope this is ok for everybody.

My work this month was focused on fine tuning the projects I started the last month, make them more stable, more useful and fix some small problems. I personally think that is very important to not only start projects, but to maintain them :)

Biblepay Central
It makes me really happy to see Biblepay Central used by so many users, as you can often see it in discussions when it is used in links. But nothing is perfect, and there is still a lot todo with Biblepay Central. My work this month related to Biblepay Central was:

1. Improving the Mining How-To
I'm proud of this how to, and how it helps so many newcomers. Most of the time this month I fixed smaller spelling mistakes, updated all the sections to reflect the current situation with biblepay and added more informations for experienced users. I also integrated a lot of fantastic feedback and helpful ideas from other users into the guide. Thanks to all users who submitted text for fixes for the guide.
Plus I improved the FAQ section, to help users solve some basic problems on their own. The new entries are based upon standard problems I saw in the forums.
Indeed, feedback is still very welcome :)

2. "How to get Biblepay Coins" Section added
The "How to get Biblepay Coins" section was added to help new users start with biblepay mining, as it requires some coins in their wallet. It is a small list of things users can do to start getting coins. Nothing big, but I hope it leads them in the right direction.

3. Mobile view improved
Last, still very important: I improved the mobile view of Biblepay Central by ensuring that every element of the page is responsive, even all of the tables. I used a nice trick to transform the tables into lists that works great on mobile devices.
In addition, I reworked some Graphics and Charts to fix the mobile screens, and fixed some css and html errors.

Ubuntu Packages
A lot of feedback I get suggests that the Ubuntu packages are used by many users right now. This is good, as this is reasons why they exists. But while they work good, not always was I fast enough in creating new packages when important changes happen. The reason is that I create the packages manually, as I want to ensure that everything is fine.
To solve this problem, I made some changes, but they took surprisingly much time, as launchpad is often a little bit... unstable.

1. Nightly Builds service
Yes, you read right, Biblepay now has a Ubuntu Packages Nightly Build PPA:
A new server of mine (as it contains the secret gpg keys, it can't be one of the existing servers for security reasons) is looking for new commits on the github repository of biblepay and creates a new package every hour if something had been changed.

2. Created a Biblepay Team on Launchpad
The current Biblepay Ubuntu PPA contains my own username, but it is now so widely used, that it seems better to rename it. To do that, I started a Biblepay-Team on Launchpad, so other users could be invited, too.
The Team has the same configuration, so we still have packages for ARM (2x), i386 and x64 available.

For the next month, I will maintain both PPAs (my own and the team), When I'm sure that the team PPA works well, I will anounce the end of life for my own PPA later.

3. The PPA is now self-containing
Before this change, users needed to add the biblepay AND the bitcoin PPA. But now, the biblepay PPA contains everything a user needs, including the barkley libdb packages. It took some time to make this work, as Launchpad won't compile the packages, but now it seems to be as stable as the bitcoin PPA for these packages.
It looked weird that we needed the Bitcoin PPA, I think it looks much more profesional without it.

4. Preparing for Bionic (Ubuntu 18.04)
End of this month, Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic will be released. I started to support it, but Launchpad fails at compiling packages for it right now, so we need to wait some time until packages will be available. Not all dependencies seems to be ok right now. It took some hours to understand this problem...

5. Updated the Wiki
Indeed, I updated the official Biblepay Wiki to reflect the changes above. I also removed the "Unofficial" from the PPA, as I hope that I proved my trustworthiness, so that the PPA now looks more inviting for users.

For the first time, I want to ask for support in the hosting costs. In didn't want to do this, but the number of servers is growing, and a little bit of support would be fantastic. This does NOT include the servers for Purepool.

1. Biblepay-Central
2. Biblepay-Central Explorer
3. Nightly-Build Server

Including Domains, Backups and Hosting, this makes 250 EUR for 12 month.

Indeed, as last month, these changes are not part of the proposal, but I want to list them for your information.

1. Checking the validity of the CPID
With the great help of Rob (he added a very important new output/check to the biblepay client), the pool can now check if the CPID is valid, and if the solutions submitted helps finding blocks. Makes the pool even more fair.

Calculation in EURO:

1 BBP: EUR 0,0027 (coinmarketcap)
Per Hour: 40/h

Time Log:
Biblepay-Central: 10h
Ubuntu Packages: 12h

Budget: IT
Requested budged for this proposal: 418'518 BBP (22h @ 40 + 250eur)

Lichtsucher is maintaining that explorer, and it's a long term commitment. I hope this information is still of any help...

Yes, you are right :)

But: I think we should only use an explorer available on the official domain for external dependencies. Makes it easier to switch the hosting if something is happening :)
And if a specific software is required, we might better create a subdomain for that, like:
This way, it is sure that an iquidus explorer is behind the domain and a switch of the software of the  the main explorer won't automatically breaks all other software (as long as the old one is available under the subdomain).

I learned the hard way that these things can happen ;D

Go for it, submit to the pool so we can vote!
Only a week to go

The proposal is online now ^^  Please vote, THANK YOU :)

Oh, and I found a small thing: the 'Discord' icon in the community tab links to Slack instead of Discord :)

Fixed ^^

I hope it will be online very soon, I asked Rob to create it, as I have not enough coins on the main pool :)

Dear Sanctuary owners, Dear Forum users,

exactly two month after my first proposal, it is a good time to they hello again and tell you about my work of the last 60 days and why I now a new proposal. In the following text, I will show you my work and the benefits it has for Biblepay. This proposal is for a whole set of interconnected projects, that are created to make Biblepay easier for everyone.

As must of you will agree, a good community need a good ecosystem, websites that supports the community, documentations that help new users to start painfree, software that is easy to setup. In my first proposal, I talked about the Ubuntu Packages I created. I got very good feedback later on these packages, and it showed me how important it is, to make things easier.

To do that, I created a couple of useful and powerful tools, websites and documentations:

1. Continued building Ubuntu packages
As a proof of my reliability, you might have noticed, that Ubuntu packages are still build ;) They are still started by hand, to prevent the build&sendout of an unfinished commit.

2. Mining How-To
I hope most of you had already seen it. As we started a little bit early with PoDC, no real easy documentation was available. So I decided to sleep a little bit less and work a little bit more, and created a Step-by-Step Guide for newcomers to Biblepay Mining. The response was very good so far, and I hope it will help a lot of users.

It was a lot of work to create this How-To, as it includes a lot of testing, creating new accounts and even running some work on these accounts, to ensure that I hadn't missed something. But it payed off :)

3. Purepool Mining pool
The pool is not part of this proposal, as I agreed with Rob that we keep the Pools out of these for now.
But it was an important part of my steps into creating userfriendly websites for Biblepay. The fantastic feedback I got for that Pool was one reason why I created the next important site:

4. Biblepay Central
We already have very nice homepage, and I like it. But it is hard to create a Website that has a focus on every aspect of something as complex as Biblepay. A good way of solving such a probem is by created specialiced sub-sites, that try to be perfect in there category.
Biblepay-Central is such a site. I created it as a tech-centred community-hub. It is itself not a community, more a place that points you in the right direction. A place you visit every day, look up for the newest statistics and use the links to go to places you might not now.
It tries to make all important information available on one place, like the current prices on the exchanges, or your personal PoDC status. Or, in very short time, a very nice overview of all proposals ;)
It targets newcomers and old users, hold documentations and links to all important places, even some most old users might have forgotten already ;)
As it is an always evolving site, it will never be "complete", but will be worked on in the future. The proposal include the parts already build.

And indeed, as always: Biblepay Central is Open Source:

Please also have a look at the PoDC User page:
It is very new, it might still have bugs, but I think it is a great addition for Biblepay.
You can access your own user by using the front page and enter your username, CPID oder Biblepay Address in the "User lookup" field in the middle of the page. You can also see the Leaderboard there.

5. A Blockchain Explorer
Sadly, our second Blockchain Explorer had gone offline, so we needed a replacement. I created one, based on the same base as the original Explorer. It is already online and can be used. We always should have more then one explorer, as they are used by other sites to get statistics about biblepay.

Benefits for Biblepay

Because of my work above, new users get an easier start into Biblepay, are more likely to stay and be active part of the Community. It made it more likely, that they will become Investors, which is indeed good for everybody.
Aside from that, Biblepay Central and the Blockchain Explorer are usefull for old users, too. Especially the new PoDC User Status page is hopefully an important place for most users from now on.
The same will be done for the proposals, and making them visible to the world, not only the registered pool users.


I hope that you will accept my proposal and help me by supporting me in being an active part of the developing community of Biblepay.
I already have more work on my list, that incluses (and more):
- Writing an easier documentation for PoDC itself
- Improving the Mining How-To even further. Including information about Staking and others
- Created the proposal section on the Biblepay-Central page
- Now that Rob had created a fixed layout for the version numbers, there could be a Nightly-Build Ubuntu Package Service
- Improving on the "How to get Biblepay" Guide on Biblepay-Central
- Adding an API to Biblepay Central to allow access to proposal and PoDC statistics
But indeed, these are only Ideas ;)

Calculation in EURO:

1 BBP: EUR 0,0024 (18 Mar 2018, 22:39 CET, coinmarketcap)
30 per/h Group A
40 per/h Group B

Time log:
Group A:
- Package Building in the last 60 days: 4 hours
- Mining How-To (includes testing): 11 hours
= 15h

Group B:
- Biblepay Central: 35 hours
- 2. Blockchain explorer: 5 hours
= 40h

Budget: IT
Requested budged for this proposal: 854'166 BBP (15 hrs @ 30 + 40 hrs @ 40)

As I said on bitcointalk: I really like the simplicity of your pool. I wonder why not more people are mining on your pool right now, since you don't have any fees at the moment...

I think people got scared away by the 5 days without a block. But if you compare the blocks/day with the main pool, it looks quite normal, the main pool is simply 100 times bigger ;)

We will see what the future brings. If it isn't a success, then at least I tried ^^
