After the update to the newest version, how many confirmations do you feel is "secure" for an exchange? Is SX currently at 40? Should it stay at 40 you think? InstantSend is very cool as a default.

I think 6 would be more like it.  Especially with chainlocks enabled.
Let's wait til block 200,000 (this is when LLMQs start POSE banning) - at that point we can look at the data in the llmq rounds and see some banned sancs.
Once that is successful we can appeal for a lower confirm limit with SX with real proof that we are locked in with chainlocks.

Good point, thanks!

Nice RandomX setup guide.  If you want, you can include the video from here also:
https://wiki.biblepay.org/Upgrade_to_RandomX

Ill try to look into these other issues asap- and your prior post- however, things are busy.

On your 2nd question, the one for this thread:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5251993.0

Feel free to quote me or use my name etc:

1) CPU mined coins do have a future, because the RandomX algorithm actually takes into account the clock cycles required to perform a task in the virtual machine on every possible device - therefore the general belief is its not going to ever be exploited by gpu or asic (as it is designed to run slower on those platforms).  Yes it might get replaced or upgraded some day, but bright minds do not see an attack vector.  (https://github.com/tevador/RandomX/issues/11)
2) There are over 100,000 randomx miners currently mining so its not true that a script kiddie can come in and take over the POW network. (65,000 on minexmr alone).
3) We have chainlocks, so in addition to randomx there is a miniscule fork risk because of our sanctuaries.
4) Its also not true that mining groups can take over randomx because each machine runs the proprietary RX vm and therefore you can't rent or steal or coerce new hashpower you simply have to have more miners.
5) BBP is fully compatible with RX so therefore we gain the security of the pool of RX miners as they discover merge mining.

I seem to have lost access to the BiblePay.org website for user account togo, I can login but cant really do anything

I wanted to send out email newsletter for mandatory upgrade and Q2 update

If someone else has access and can send, please do!

I went into the WP-admin portal and checked your account.  I increased permissions to Editor- please see if that works; if it does not we may have to increase permissions for the newsletter (but I don't see specific newsletter permissions).

Hey Rob, I logged into the biblepay website, I am able to see all pages now, but I cannot see newsletter plugin hmmm

Screenshot:  https://i.imgur.com/tECZvwW.png

This recent post doesnt look good for Editor role for Newsletter plugin:
https://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-give-access-to-author-to-see-newsletter-plugin-details/

Anyways, Should be pretty easy to setup and send the newsletter, In the past I used to build up the whole thing, but now I just link the Medium article, Can just do a copy of the previous newsletter and change the title, links and text

I'm off to bed for tonight, If needed, tomorrow, I can try to help during lunch, worst case after work (a few hours after the upgrade block hits)

=

Also, I posted your response in the Mining Altcoin forum! Thank you! :)

*** 60 more blocks for June mandatory upgrade to go live ***


See below for the transition plan after block 199,000:
1.  I am working on the final piece for merge mining on the BiblePay pool server side.  I will be doing a final integration test around block 199K then checking in the changes after its deployed to prod.
2.  I will post instructions on how to switch your miner over before the cutover height.  This will basically just mean transitioning from the BBP-XMRIG miner over to the plain vanilla XMRIG miner.  Ill also edit the foundation.biblepay.org web site config settings and the wiki page for new miners (How to mine randomx).
3.  Once this is checked in we will need any satellite pools to upgrade their software (bbp.miningpool.fun, etc).

1 more block before go-live!


So far, I have updated the mining download link here:

https://wiki.biblepay.org/Upgrade_to_RandomX


I am now upgrading foundation.biblepay.org.
When the block cuts over, I will test it and then update everyone here.

Ok, foundation.biblepay.org is now live with merge-mining.

Please upgrade your miner to XMRIG now, otherwise your shares will be rejected.

Our satellite pool has been notified.

Ah I see, thanks. I used this page: "https://wiki.biblepay.org/RandomX_Setup" for reference and there it's the other way round. On the "update to randomX" page it's corrected already. :)

Ok, yes, got it -- I was referring to the one I posted today:
https://forum.biblepay.org/index.php?topic=517.msg7696#msg7696

Yes, Togos page has not been updated yet (he just made that new one a couple days ago).

I did update the pool configuration getting started page also.

Great, looks like we have 3 people in the pool mining now.
