DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Quarkcoin

QuarkCoin often shortened to QRK is based on Sifcoin which in itself is similar to the famous bitcoin and is also a crypto currency in its own right. Little is known about who created QuarkCoin but one of the creators goes by the name maxguevara on www.quark.freeforums.net. The main idea behind QuarkCoin is to increase security and be done quickly. To achienve this goal the creators modified a few aspects of the sifcoin protocol these are:

Shorter block time creation

30 Seconds block creation 2048 QRK per block (halving every 60480 blocks ~ 3 weeks)

Other changed aspects

Block rewards will not drop beloow 1 QRK Total of 247 million QRK will be mined in ~ 6 months, after that ~ 1 million QRK p.a. (~ 0.5% p.a inflation) Difficulty will re-target every 20 blocks (maximum 10% up or 50% down)

New key format

Wallet public keys now start with the letter q instead of the number 1 which is how Bitcoin wallets are formatted.

Bitcoin wallet key: 13zpBPWdZ18xeGpLBkuzgp4o9dt4e1FHSB Qrkcoin wallet key : QYunf7wnsrvLpYL6HoCF4oaWGLTPyXvc9x

Mining

Qrkcoin can be mined on CPU or GPU however a higher hash-rate can be achieved through CPU mining, and this is done on port 6010, this coin can be mined on many pools one being www.coinmine.pl, this involves downloading an .exe file with other files and creating your own start.cmd script.

How to create a start.cmd script

Creating this script will start the CPU miner and send the results to your pool via your worker, first you will need to determine how many physical cores your computer has and then the script should go as follows:

minerd64_sse4.exe -a quark -o stratum+tcp://qrk.coinmine.pl:6010 -u username.workername -p password sse = the number of cores in this case the number of physical cores is 4, if you have HT it will use the other cores automatically, this is all put into a .txt file once completed it should then be saved with the file extension .cmd . ==Exchanges== QrkCoin can be traded on //http://www.vircurex.com// for bitcoin and //https://www.cryptsy.com// . ==Links== *//http://www.qrk.cc// - Homepage of QrkCoin *//https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=260031.0// - Official QrkCoin thread on bitcointalk ===Source Code and Compiled Downloads=== *Source Code - //https://github.com/MaxGuevara/quark// *Windows Build - //http://www.qrk.cc/quarkcoin083r6win.zip// *Linux - //http://stonefoz.myfastmail.com/cpuminer-quark-bin.zip// *Mac //OS// X - //https://www.dropbox.com/s/uwfy0rqd3x74o1u/Quarkcoin-Qt-0.8.30-1-Mac.zip// //Computing//, //CryptoCurrency//, //How_to// //
