    How does new revert protection detect pool support?

    OK, great. I looked at the code and realized I didn't post all of it. I looked back to the time when I last posted to the Dash forums, and found that in the same commit I had also added code to append the coinbase_payload to the coinbase transaction. Since I was told above that no changes are...

    How does new revert protection detect pool support?

    The way I understand it now, then, is that I can simply change this tx_version constant to 4, and leave everything else the same, and upgrade to the latest version of Dash? As far as I can tell, all the other changes depend on the behavior of masternodes, right, and the daemon will handle...

    How does new revert protection detect pool support?

    I've been talking with Phillipp Engelhorn about the upcoming Dash upgrade over the past week, but he is serving as an intermediary to the developers and I thought it would be more efficient to post messages directly here rather than force him to constantly relay E-Mails. I sent him the...

    Extreme Dash block rewards

    Thanks for your help! I decided that, because regtest is so difficult, I would just surround this code by a try/catch block. If the parsing isn't right, Dash will be in error and the superblock won't be mined by us, but either way no more money will be lost. The Dash community is always...

    Extreme Dash block rewards

    The huge value caused us to devote all hashrate to Dash and find this block, but it was rejected by the network, probably for the reason you stated. 1. How much of that reward goes to the miner? Is all that money allocated to thousands of addresses and the miner just gets the normal reward...

    Extreme Dash block rewards

    On the second day of the past two months, we've noticed a short period of extreme Dash block rewards, which cost us about $10,000 in losses. The problem is so significant that I'm going to have to spend the day today writing a new failsafe to disconnect Dash miners when this issue occurs. Here...

    $50 available to determine what is wrong with this block

    Thanks to your help. The transaction is at https://prohashing.com/explorer/Dash/aff8483783f68b3c755ae849bbe4a15755d12907574387d03adabecc1dedbe70/. PS. Thanks for pointing out the pool's address. I was wondering how you would know it was the pool's address, and then I saw how much money there...

    $50 available to determine what is wrong with this block

    Thanks for the tip. I was successfully able to completely certify that Dash mines correctly. The cause of the last problem was that the crossbar WAMP server was not running in the development environment. When a coin has a new block, blocknotify executes a program that forwards the block...

    $50 available to determine what is wrong with this block

    Unfortunately, this error is still present this morning, so I don't believe it's related to whatever mining someone else is doing with the testnet. The result is still "inconclusive," and when the daemon is queried for the hash of the block at that height, a different hash than the one that we...

    $50 available to determine what is wrong with this block

    But this happened twice at separate times. I'm going to wait until tomorrow and try again before declaring this finished and issuing a payout. If it returns true, then I'll just assume the testnet was orphaning blocks. If I can't get it to confirm at least one block, then I don't feel...

    $50 available to determine what is wrong with this block

    Thanks for the help! It seems as if the system is a little farther along now. The "bad-cb-type" and "bad-txmrlkroot" errors have gone away by implementing the method described in the pull request. Unfortunately, the daemon now returns a result of "inconclusive." The mining server then calls...

    $50 available to determine what is wrong with this block

    Hi, Two years ago, on February 18, 2017, I posted a thread at https://www.dash.org/forum/threads/100-available-to-assist-with-transaction-id-problem.13181/ in this forum where developers were very helpful with resolving a problem submitting blocks to the Dash daemon. Now, I spent 12 hours on...

    Looking for help understanding extranonce2 behavior

    Hi, I was hoping that someone here could help me understand the behavior of miners and rental services that seem to ignore the extranonce2 sizes requested in the stratum protocol: https://forums.prohashing.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1383 Any help that could be provided before our April 16 x11...

    Thanks! This is the correct answer, and I resolved the issue. I posted what caused this problem in the linked thread, thanked everyone for their help, and described how you can get paid for your work. I also made a suggestion as to how DASH can be improved to prevent this from happening in...
