Litecoin mining!

Since the litecoin community is growing, I've decided to introduce /litecoinmining, a place for all discussion revolving mining litecoins!

Groestlcoin GRS is officially maintained by the Bitcoin Debian packaging team.

A response to the GRS Shill cries

First of all, I think it is right to say that it wouldn’t be fair for the recent reddit to be entirely attributed to the recent 130% rise in GRS price – The price has gone a lot higher when SegWit was activated and a lot higher in the runup to the previous release announcement (22nd September) and was arguably at the ‘floor’ when it was discovered by us.
I’d like to give a little bit of a backstory on the recent discovery of GRS by a small group of people in a hope you realise this isn’t just shilling some shit-coin for a pump and dump. It was never our intention to come across as shilling and certainly not our intention to attract ‘pump and dump’ groups. We merely searched for SegWit-activated coins, and the main one that kept popping up was Groestlcoin, in posts that didn’t even mention Litecoin or Vertcoin. We thought that it was worth investigating further and decided to do some more research, and the more we found we more we realised that this was a genuine diamond amongst the rocks. 254th in market cap, first to activate SegWit, Lightning Network in full development, the list was endless – and seemingly nobody knew about it which was insanity.
In several places we saw that no marketing was done or being actively planned, and it was up to the community to market the coin if they wanted to whilst the 20+ developers keep cracking on to try and be the first to more developments.
We contacted the lead developer, ‘Jackielove4u’ and started a plan to try and market the coin, first by creating a Discord channel for discussions and then by trying to get their great features out to the world and aim for slow-and-steady growth.
In hindsight, a bit more finesse would have been better and the reddit posts got a little out-of-hand, if I didn’t know any better I would have seen GRS as a coin being shilled too on Reddit, and I have accused people of doing the same with Vertcoin in the past. So I thought I’d try to clear up some misconceptions and give one targeted response post to the cries of shilling and try to give the facts to the best of my knowledge, whilst trying to give an unbias opinion as much as I can based on my views and the views of the response that we’ve had.
• Segwit Enabled Enabled first)
• Low-Power Mining – This is a selling point but people have said the power consumption is on-par with Vertcoin. I think the mining uses 2 rounds of Groestl algorithm hashing to make it more secure but is still very low on power consumption and hardware wear
• Lightning Network currently in development
• They have had an easy miner solution since 2015 – Although I’d be the first to admit it is a little clunky, but is openly on Git for improvements.
• 3 iOS wallets (Including a shared wallet), 11 android wallets (1x Secure BIP147, 1x Including sending GRS via SMS, 1x ability to use NFC tags as encryption keys), 11 blackberry wallets (Secure), 3 web wallets and 10 desktop wallets with varying features / designs – More to come on the differences soon.
• Over 80 electrum servers
• Working testnet
• Hosts their own block explorer
• Officially maintained by the Bitcoin Debian packaging team
• Ubuntu PPA available
• ASIC resistant, profitable CPU and GPU mining (And has an ARM miner apparently!) We’re just brushing the surface of the great tech that is being developed by the GRS developers.
• Elephant in the room – The name. People have called it ugly, most don’t know how to pronounce it (It’s Groosel-coin). The developers are open to a rebrand pending a community vote in 2018.
• I’ve heard a few times ‘that logo looks like a cross between google and wordpress’. Again the logo is open to rebrand/redesign pending a vote (open for suggestions/examples!) but there is some significance in it. The ‘2’ in the logo is for the 2 rounds of Groestl algorithm hashing that is used.
• Obviously little or no marketing up until this point. Marketing is important (if not vital) for the success of a coin so we’re trying to spread some awareness.
• Lots of internet posts saying that it is a scam coin. From what I can see it seems to be because the coin has been ‘pumped-and-dumped’ a few times? By that logic, most coins are scam coins? The block reward dropped 6% a week when it was first launched specifically to prevent pump-and-dumps.
• Rumours of a pre-mine of 0.2% (240,000 coins) when it was first created. I haven’t gotten to the bottom of this to confirm or deny, but if it was true it seems to have been given as rewards for some early marketing (where those odd naked women pictures come from) and some early bounty rewards to get the ball rolling. No pre-mine is ideal but its personally something I can look over now if it IS true.
• Over 70% of the mined coins are owned by the top 100 addresses. Again, this is clearly an issue that many other coins also are facing (albeit some to a lesser extent). I can only guess that the more time that passes being a lesser-known coin, the greater risk that this becomes as the same miners mine for a longer period of time. Not sure if this matters much but it’s also worth noting that 24% of the mined coins appear to be on Bittrex currently.
TL:DR – Trying not to shill GRS, just trying to get the word out. Criticisms about the coin have been noted by the developers and they are very open to change and improvements suggested if they are the popular vote. I recommend that you research more into the coin, coin the discord on and make a decision based on your own research whether you'd see something in, and like to support the coin.
Apologies for such a long post..

Interesting technical facts about Groestlcoin that might explain price rise

Disclaimer: After doing some research, I own a small amount of Groestlcoin and no Vertcoin (I rkn VTC is overvalued currently). Might buy some VTC after it corrects. Here's why...

GRS development status (facts)

From the GRS discord:
BCG came and people discoverd that is has the same qualities as VTC
But then not premined and ASIC resistent Then people started looking for more ASIC resistent coins and came to GRS VTC has a great dev team and now people are seeing that GRS has developed a lot further then VTC Then this list came with GRS
First coin with SegWit
Only coin that has succesfully ported Bitcoin Armory
Only coin that have over 40 Electrum servers.
One of the few coins that have a Ubuntu PPA available
One of the few coins that is officially maintained by the Bitcoin Debian packaging team
Only coin that has succesfully ported Multibit HD We have 10 different Android wallets. Most struggle to have just 1.
We have 9 different Blackberry wallets. Most dont have any.
One of the few coins that have an ios wallet
We have over 10 different desktop wallets
Only coin that has ported Samourai and thus succesfully implemented BIP147. You can work with payment channels with Groestlcoin.
One of the few coins where you can play with OP_HOLD, RBF and other new features
Only coin that has ported electrum client to java
One of the few coins that has ported
Only coin with over 100 repositories with developed work.
Only coin that is capable of sending GRS over SMS
Only coin that has wallets which can use NFC tags as encryption key.
Only coin that has ported Msigna.
Only coin that has ported sentinel.
Only coin that is still being compiled with Visual Studio (like Satoshi himself did)
We got now also 2 ios wallets
We got 1 more android and 1 more blackberry wallet
We have a working testnet
We got a testnet android and blackberry wallet
We got a chrome os wallet
We got 2 new webwallets
We got tor support for our electrum since january 2017
We got 40 tor servers
VTC jumped from 0.60 usd to 4usd in two weeks (my guess is partially thanks to the btc fork)
GRS is now only 0.12usd And all these have SW, LN and AS
TLDR: GRS is very well developed.

Just a warning about the electrum bitcoin wallet on debian sid

I installed electrum from the repository today and when I tried to send some bitcoin I received an extremely convincing pop-up in the client with pictures and everything saying that my client was out of date and that I needed to visit the site to update. Of course the site linked was as opposed to the official Luckily I noticed this pretty fast, but this is definitely one of the most advanced phishing schemes I have seen to date. The electrum package seriously needs updating, I even found a bug report about it from 3 months that hasn't been resolved. Over $3m has been stolen using this phishing scheme and that number is increasing every day.
tl;dr install electrum from source on the official site, do NOT use the package right now

[Quick guide] Run a full node with btcd (an alternative to bitcoin-core) on debian

It's good to run a full node, and even better to run one with an alternative implementation to bitcoin-core.
I was surprised how easy it is to install btcd (conformal's alternative implementation of a full node). I was also surprised how little bandwidth a full node uses. This quick guide will get you up and running.
To use this method you will need debian testing (Jessie) because the version of golang on debian stable is too old. However, the binary produced will run on debian stable. You will need about 25GB free to store the blockchain, with an extra 20GB or so if you use the bootstrap.dat torrent.
Probably the same instructions will work on ubuntu (but using sudo instead of root).
On debian testing the steps are:
1 - as root, do
# aptitude update; aptitude install golang mercurial git 
2 - pull in and compile btcd and associated utilities as normal user,
$ mkdir btcd; cd btcd; export GOPATH=$(pwd); $ go get 
3 - run your node
$ cd bin $ ./btcd --externalip=YOUREXTERNALIP 
(where YOUREXTERNALIP is your external IP address).
4 - on your router, forward port 8333 to the computer your node is running on. Once your node is running, check the port is open with a tool such as
5 - enjoy being part of the network!
OPTIONAL STEP A (to download the blockchain faster, to be run before step 3):
A1 - download Jeff Garzik's torrent to bootstrap the blockchain or the magnet link, magnet:?xt=urn:btih:36719ba2cecf9f3bd7c5abfb7a88e939611b536c&dn=bootstrap.dat& (discussion here)
A2 - run as normal user,
$ ./addblock -i /whatevepath/to/youtorrent/download/bootstrap.dat 
then continue to step 3.
OPTIONAL STEP B (to throttle bandwidth):
B1 - as root, do
# aptitude install trickle 
B2 - as your normal user, instead of step 3, run (where XXX is your desired upload speed limit in KB/s)
$ trickle -u XXX ./btcd 
Edits: see comments. Added note about external IP.

How secure is my setup?

Hello everyone I want to know your thoughts on my setup :)
I use Linux (Debian) as my primary host system, a VPN that runs 24/7 in the background and a virtual machine that runs the latest version of tails (Without using persistent storage).
NOTE: My computer was wiped before installing Linux, it is setup with luks encryption and the BIOS is locked down.
I use 5 temp protonmail accounts, I use all 5 for separate Bitcoin wallets, 1 account I use to buy the Bitcoin, 3 accounts for mixing, e.g: mix>move>mix>move>mix>move. And the last account for buying.
I will not be using any personal information during the process
I will extract cash from my credit card at a bank, use the cash to buy non-refillable pre-paid debit cards, buy Bitcoin from definitely not coin base and lastly dispose the pre-paid cards.
After I use the Bitcoin I will delete all accounts and restart the process when I'm going to buy something
(I'm only using Bitcoin to buy things privately, not to buy illegal things.)

Script needed to easily create a Bitcoin node on 5 $ Debian DigitalOcean server

I would like to add about 5 nodes to the bitcoin network, to increase the stability..
Can someone write me an easy script how to deploy bitcoin on a 5 usd digital ocean machine with debian installed? With activated pruning?
I saw some scripts, but all of them are for ubuntu and I really prefer debian, due to fewer updates.
Here is an example for Ubuntu
Would be nice if someone could help! Thanks in advance!!
edit I see, I cannot create a node on a vps with 512 MB ram... damn.. So yeah, we can see that Bitcoin Unlimited would make it more complicated to deploy a node...

User of Debian, Updated OpenSSL before knowing about bitcoin issue... need help.

So, my BitcoinQT client says: "No block source available - 10 days behind"
Additionally my debian install won't update any packages what so ever becaues I am apparently holding broken packages, which I can only assume is somehow related.
So... what do I do? Even if the OpenSSL problem fixed in a beta, I don't think I'd be able to install it.
Anyone have this problem? Would love the help! I need to pay $25 to a bitcoin hosting company later tonight so hopefully I get it figured out!

FYI: Brave browser is blocking Debian ISO downloads

When attempting to download DVD 3 of the 10.4x ISO via the Brave Browser, I am getting the following:
Google's Safe Browsing is not blocking it either: This can be confirmed by testing with Chrome as well as the Google Safe Browsing API and/or query.
Brave is blocking it via the default enabled "Google Safe Browsing".
Since Google is not flagging it, yet Brave absolutely is flagging it and halting the download (unless you bypass), something seems amiss. Tried several other mirrors, Brave is blocking it while Google Safe Browsing is not.
It could definitely be some automated technical mistake, however considering some of the recent shenanigans with the Brave browser with regards to phishing attacks and bitcoin (which the Brave devs acknowledged and removed), I thought I would bring this up and see what other people think.

Bitcoin Cash is just as much Bitcoin as Bitcoin Core. It would be like Red Hat users claiming Debian was not Linux to say otherwise. Furthermore Bitcoin Cash is true to Satoshi's original vision and is actually usable today for transactional purposes. Legacy Bitcoin aka Bitcoin Core has morphed into a highly volatile speculative instrument of Wall Street.
