以利坊 (Electroneum:ETN) 緊急要將演算法改回 CryptoNight



Shit Happens !

是沒有很驚嚇啦,只是些許的無奈。猶記得一個月前我還在期待「準備迎接以利坊 (Electroneum:ETN) 硬分叉後的全新局面到來」,沒想到這陣子 ETN 不但沒漲,反而還跌得比整體幣圈平均還兇,然後昨晚就看到這樣的消息。ETN 要在區塊高度 324,500 時,再度進行硬分叉,將演算法從 CryptoNightV7 改回去變成原來的 CryptoNight。而且很急,大概明天晚上就改了。

理由是因為換演算法以來的這一個月,願意持續參與 ETN 挖礦的顯卡礦工數量太少,絕大多數礦工都是唯利是圖的看到利潤才來挖,難度太高了就跑了,尤其是現在有 NiceHash 這種平台要調度算力實在是太容易了,導致全網算力呈現非常不穩定的波浪狀,妳看下面的難度表就知道了,是不是有種桂林山水甲天下的感覺呢?




要換回就換回吧,隨妳了。我這邊呢,基於 ETN 的手機挖礦是免本穩賺的生意這樣的理由,還是堅決繼續這麼挖下去,而且也會繼續推廣下去,畢竟不會有甚麼損失。萬一賭對了,未來 ETN 大漲上去,那就開心了。

以下,是 ETN 公告的原文,給大家參考。


Hi Everyone!

ALL ELECTRONEUM NODE OWNERS MUST UPDATE THEIR SOFTWARE BY BLOCK 324500 (approx. 36 hours from now – this is an URGENT UPDATE – PLEASE SHARE THIS INFORMATION)

  • We have an urgent software update below for anyone who runs a full Electroneum Node. If you don’t know what a node is – don’t worry! You won’t need to do anything.
  • We also have a VERY exciting update about an upcoming listing on a top 10 exchange.
  • How will I mine Electroneum after this update?
  • Instant Payment vendor API is open for BETA applicants.
  • How can ETN change the world?
Please note that nothing in this message refers to MOBILE MINING – we are referring to the underlying blockchain miners.

Urgent Electroneum Node / RPC / Command Line Wallet Update

ALL ELECTRONEUM NODE OWNERS MUST UPDATE THEIR SOFTWARE BY BLOCK 324500 (approx. 36 hours from now – this is an URGENT UPDATE – PLEASE SHARE THIS INFORMATION)

https://github.com/electroneum/electroneum/releases/tag/v2.1.0.0

It’s only been a few short days since I made a video and said “our fork went well! We’re ready for 20m Users!”.

The fork was a great success, from a technical standpoint. Unfortunately, we never got back the number of GPU miners that are needed to ensure our network runs smoothly and has stable block emission. A new phenomenon has emerged where a number of users are mining Electroneum in waves. They come on and then leave after a few hours in a coordinated manner to mine ETN in a completely selfish way. We can’t blame  people for  maximizing their profit, but we have not built up the amount of “hashing power” that is required to make this impossible and create the stability we need in the network.

This has left us at risk. As such, we have to take urgent action to stabilise our network and protect the Electroneum community.

Coinbene Listing Electroneum & our network stability

We have formally agreed and signed contracts to be listed in July on the AWESOME, top 10, cryptocurrency exchange https://Coinbene.com & https://Coinbene.com.br

Coinbene have 1.5m active users and are a GREAT fit for Electroneum. Their primary markets are Latin America and Asia – which fits perfectly with Electroneum’s customer base. They have seen enormous growth over the last few months and have been very positive about the Electroneum Project.

Whilst this is great news, we will need much more hashing power to ensure we have network stability for our listing on this exchange, so we’ve taken the decision that we can’t wait any longer for GPU miners to return to us and we must run an urgent software update to re-introduce ASIC mining to Electroneum.

This is a very positive move for Electroneum. A great deal of Bitcoin’s trust and appeal is from the enormous hashing power and distribution of miners on the network. Bitcoin & LiteCoin have embraced ASICs and we feel that it is the right thing for Electroneum to do the same.

ASICS are becoming more prevalent, they cost considerably less to run than a GPU rig and use a fraction of the electricity. We are going to encourage more ASIC ownership and take our hashing rate up to (and beyond) the enormous levels of hashing power that we had before the May fork.

There is a further development. The first generation of hardware called an FPGA miner is arriving during 2018 and they make ANTI-ASIC capabilities a thing of the past, as they circumvent the slow delivery time of new ASICs by being re-programmable. If we are ready to embrace these rather than fight them, our network hashing power is increased further and our network stability and security is further enhanced.

Because ASICS run cooler, quieter and use a fraction of GPU rig power, they are suitable for MORE people to run in their homes. If you are interested, a search of “Cryptonight ASIC miner” in Google or Ebay will find the equipment needed to mine Electroneum. You will need to be reasonably technical to achieve this!

Having a stable network is absolutely key to both delivering mass adoption and to ensure we have a great relationship with the great exchanges that we’re already listed with, and to encourage more of the larger exchanges to see Electroneum as a coin that they want on board.

How will I mine Electroneum after this update?

If you are a mobile miner – nothing changes. If you are a GPU or ASIC miner then you’ll need to connect to an Electroneum pool but it is important to note that you will need to change your ALGORITHM. You MUST use the algorithm “Cryptonight” and NOT “Electroneum” or “CryptonightV7”. This will ensure your device works after the update. We will communicate this to all pools, but if you are a member of a mining pool – PLEASE LET THE ADMINS KNOW ABOUT THIS CRITICAL UPDATE. They must update their pool node by block 324500, which is only around 36 hours away.

Instant Payment vendor API is open for BETA applicants

Instant Cryptocurrency Payments via smart phone has always been a critical part of what Electroneum required to achieve mass market adoption. It’s never been done, but 9 short months after our ICO we are excited to announce that we have opened to the doors to vendors who would like to accept payment via Electroneum. The application is to be part of the BETA rollout of instant payment, but will operate on the live blockchain with real ETN!

If you run a business or know someone who does – why not recommend they apply to accept ETN. The Press and Marketing opportunities for the first, in any sector, to accept cryptocurrency are huge! Be part of the instant payment API BETA program by completing this form:

How can ETN change the world?

Instant payment does far more than allow people to pay for their coffee with crypto instead of their VISA card.

If you’d like to know more about Electroneum’s future I suggest you read a fantastic article that describes its coming role in the world, by fellow director Chris Gorman OBE (Officer of the British Empire – awarded by the Queen of England!): https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-cryptocurrency-enable-financial-inclusion-chris-gorman-obe-duniv

Electroneum has one of the largest of all cryptocurrency communities and it is made up of passionate and amazing people. With your support and world changing things we have coming out over the next few weeks, we can use this update to make our blockchain foundation secure and lead the world in mobile cryptocurrency.

I'm sure you agree that we've been through some challenging times which our team have always dealt with and learned from. The strength and support from our community and many of our goals becoming a reality combined with this blockchain update will give us the perfect foundation to deliver the Electroneum vision that we all share.


Thanks for taking the time to read this long message.

Have a great day everyone,
