3 Minute Blocks
« on: December 18, 2013, 08:42:00 PM »

We seem to have 3 minute blocks, rather than 6 minute blocks as planned. The parameters to Kimoto's Gravity Well haven't acted as expected. It might just take some time to adjust, but it seems to sticking to a difficultly level already, coming in at about 3 minutes.

Not sure how I feel about it, there's pros and cons to it. I thought I'd open a discussion about it anyway.

The way I see it, there's three options.
1. Leave it as it is
2. Well signaled fork to get to 6 minutes
3. Wait to see if another issue arises and piggy-back it if so.

I typically haven't had any trouble with coin's client/syncing however with the most recent fork I encountered several issues of having to rebuild the blockchain a couple times before they finally now seem to be good.  I've noticed others that they've had same issues, and some are still unresolved. 

My vote (if mine is important lol  :P) is to just keep it the same and see if it anything else arises down the road.

Also side note awesome job and as I hope you are...disregard anyone who is complaining about your coin because they dont have a block.  People are dumb...100 blocks into it and people were complaining about not having a block.  It made me angry for you but at the time i couldn't post on your bitcointalk thread. 

alrighty sorry that's not part of this thread good work man!

Thanks Reject! It does get tough to read pages and pages of reports of crashes and difficulties with nodes, but I try not to let it get to me. I value people's reports of their problems because it helps me improve the software, but the juvenile language does grate sometimes.

Anyway - might have spoken too soon about 3 minute blocks - difficultly has suddenly doubled, and looks to be exactly at the 6 minute mark now. That'll teach me to doubt the great Kimoto.

... And then, it suddently halved  8)

Code: [Select]
{
    "blocks" : 741,
    "currentblocksize" : 0,
    "currentblocktx" : 0,
    "difficulty" : 0.00000326,
    "errors" : "",
    "genproclimit" : -1,
    "hashespermin" : "No information yet. Wait at least 4 minutes after starting mining for estimate.",
    "pooledtx" : 0,
    "testnet" : false
}

Code: [Select]
{
    "blocks" : 742,
    "currentblocksize" : 0,
    "currentblocktx" : 0,
    "difficulty" : 0.00000174,
    "errors" : "",
    "genproclimit" : -1,
    "hashespermin" : "No information yet. Wait at least 4 minutes after starting mining for estimate.",
    "pooledtx" : 0,
    "testnet" : false
}

Edit:
Then doubled again...
But the 6 minutes target seems anyhow to be met indeed!

No - we seem to rising to our 6 minute target now. No reason for a fork, let alone a horrible one.
