  • The winner of the XDAG Block Explorer bounty was not difficult to determine, as only one participant shared his work publicly before the end of the contest.

    Discord user @rubencm#5207 has publicly released his block-explorer, based on prior work by Cheatoshin0.

    @rubencm’s block-explorer is available at this address: http://b.xdagtalk.com/

    Per bounty conditions, we would like to reward @rubencm#5207 as the winner of this bounty.

    Cheatoshin0 will be awarded the second place reward, as without his work @rubencm#5207 wouldn’t have been able to create his explorer.

    As there were no other submissions, the third price will be shared between the two winners.

    Please have a look on the following, we reward the block explorer bounty. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1peYtc6VceN-PO5084V3pFjQjP-1w1ka9Ma2zd5UpgHk/edit?usp=sharing

  • This poll has been formed to determine if community funds, collected to the community address from voluntary pool fees, should be distributed to members of the community who have produced, created, or improved community resources which further grow Dagger or secure the XDAG network. Rewards will be given for completed tasks such as:

    • The creation and upkeep of the community website
    • Improved miners, from improved CPU miners to new GPU miners
    • Public outreach and support

    This reward is intended for recipients who have publicly released their work, without a community benefit arrangement prior to close of this poll, such as from direct developer payments or bounties. This reward is not intended as payment for any future work, including but not limited to wallet improvement, website upkeep, or release of code after the close of this poll.

    The community XDAG address of FQglVQtb60vQv2DOWEUL7yh3smtj7g1s contains the funds to be distributed. All collected funds are voluntary. At the time of this poll, the balance exceeds 113300 XDAG.

    After finalization of this poll, a new yes/no poll will be created with a list of recipients, accomplishments, and reward values. Upon agreement with this first poll, and finalization of this second poll, payouts will commence.

    Thank you for being a part of the community, and taking your time to respond to this poll.

    Thanks a lot to @MyInvertedNip who help us to build it, and thanx to all the others people who have been involved by any way they can.

    First real step for us, we are now able to be more organized . Please spread this as much as you can on social media.

    1. Link to download https://github.com/jonano614/DaggerGpuMiner/releases
    2. Source codes https://github.com/jonano614/DaggerGpuMiner

    GPU-miner is based on OpenCL. You need to have your account address and storage folder to use it. Most of modern video cards is applicable. Current implementation is not optimized, probably hashrate can be increased in about 80% further. My AMD Radeon R9 270x makes 240 MH/s now. Also miner supports CPU-mining. But current implementation is slower than official wallet (v845+). Currently only Windows is supported. Version for Linux is in development. If somebody wants to make version for Mac OS - you can write me.

    How to use: unpack archive to a folder. Copy storage folder to the folder with miner. Create .bat file with necessary launch parameters. Use it. Launch parameters:

    1. GPU benchmark: DaggerGpuMiner.exe -G -M
    2. GPU mining: DaggerGpuMiner.exe -G -a -p
    3. CPU mining: DaggerGpuMiner.exe -cpu -a -p -t N (N - is a number of threads)

    Different features and optional parametes:

    1. “-h” - show help
    2. you can list all available devices using parameters “-list-devices -G”
    3. by default GPU mining is performed only on the first OpenCL device. You can specify several devices using parameter “-opencl-devices 0 1 3”. Use your device numbers instead of “0 1 3”. Also use can use parameter “-d “ there is count of used devices.

    Also I recommend you to place “pause” command in the end of the .bat file.

    If you have question, suggestion or you want to participate in develpment you can write me here in PM or on email jonano614@gmail.com. Further closest plans:

    1. get rid of storage folder
    2. rewrite logging
    3. static position for hash rate
    4. optimization of OpenCL kernel

  • OVERVIEW

    The first bounty program task is to create a block explorer. The new Dagger community website (xdag.org) will be out soon, and it will include lots of information from the community regarding the Dagger project. The website will need tools in the future to let users explore Dagger, and the first tool is a block explorer.

    GOALS & SPECIFICATIONS

    Create a functioning block explorer that contains the following information:

    1. Current main block height
    2. Current network hash difficulty
    3. Ideally, an actual 2D visual representation of the DAG tree
    4. Total block count
    5. Current difficulty
    6. Coins in circulation
    7. General information by block hash or address, such as:
      1. Timestamp
      2. Block children, parents, and path to a main block
      3. Block hash for address, or address for hash
      4. Block difficulty
      5. Transaction details (amount sent to which address)

    It will be an advantage if you create an interpreter for the storage blocks instead of query the wallet sockets API.

    SPECIFICATIONS

    Entrants must release the block explorer as open source code, and shared on Discord for review. All submissions will be accepted and reviewed.

    REWARD

    Three winners will be nominated and receive a reward. 1st place: 5000 XDAG; 2nd place: 1500 XDAG; 3rd place: 750 XDAG.

    SUBMIT

    Submit your block explorer through Discord (https://discord.gg/4hAntBw) in the #technical-hq channel. The submission should contain:

    1. Link to your project
    2. A Dagger address

    Last submission will be accepted the 10/02/2018 .
