This is my call for all of you very smart developers to dig into the proof of work and enhance it. There is a huge bounty in terms of extra PTS that could be earned if you develop a faster miner.
I have proven it can be done and made my faster miner available through my pool, but the proof of work needs as many eyes as possible on it and so I am not going to open source my efforts until someone can match them.
The only way to make closed-source miners irrelevant is if the open source versions are just as good. So I will open source my miner once someone else is able to match it in speed, in the mean time it it will be used to give my pool an advantage and thus earn Invictus Innovations extra income necessary to fund our development efforts.
For the record: the mining algorithm has been developed and enhanced entirely in the open. We paid FreeTrade to build the best he could do. We have no more advantage than anyone else at implementing fast miners.
But just for fun, I will add a 1 BTC bounty paid to anyone that can build a faster miner than
mine EVERYONE ELSE and keep it that way for over a week.
You must submit your miner as a patch to the ProtoShares-Qt client so it is easy to distribute for all!
You may submit binaries while in the candidate phase, but must open source prior to bounty being paid.
