Oops We Did It Again: DeroGold Mining Pool on OrangePi 3

A few months ago we announced our public minining pool for TurtleCoin that runs on OrangePi One Plus. As this project was not enough, we stepped up to the challenge and recently set up a new pool for another privacy coin project in which we are involved – DeroGold. Doing a pool for DeroGold is…

Lesson’s learned: DeroGold to cope with 65k+ transactions in the tx pool

There is no attack in a decentralized privacy network. It’s just either regular transactions or fusion transactions. Of course, there could be elements and individuals who would deliberately perform such activities that would cause some degree of a trouble for a young distributed, decentralized network that consists mostly from unmanaged low powerfull nodes. And that…

Torture time: Try to Bring the SBC TurtleCoin Pool Down With Lots of Hash Rate

In the earlier post, I promised to share with you how we tried to bring the OrangePI One Plus board down with lots of TurtleCoin Pool hash rate. This test was triggered by two factors. The first factor was my own curiosity. I had a conservative guess on how much hash rate a single board…

Native Mining App for Cryptonight-Turtle on Android

This post was originally published on DeroGold Medium. It caught our attention, as the announcement is crypto related, concerns ARM devices (most of mobile devices run a flavour of ARM chip) and it pushes the boundaries! Mine2Gether came up with an Android miner for cryptonight-turtle algo, which allows you to mine number of coins, such…

Let’s get serious. Run TurtleCoin Pool on OrangePI

Over the past months, we did set up miners and nodes on ARM-based SBCs, namely on OragnePIs and Rock64s. All these piecese were leading to one thing – it was time to get shit done. Beginning of March, we decided to take the plastic-card size OrangePI One Plus on a trip no one ever took…

Reflecting back: getting that slow-hash to work aarch64

When we started experimenting with the ARM-based SBCs, such as Pine/Rok64, OrangePI, BananaPI, Odroid boxes and many other boards, we had an ultimate dream. How good it would be to run a TurtleCoin node on a small, energy-efficient harware. How cool it would be to expand this to literally any other cryptonight-based coin? The inspiration…

What about minig on Raspberry 3B(+)?

This post is a short follow up to our previous article on mining cryptonight-turtle algo coins with SBCs (OrangePI One Plus). The good news is yes, if you have got a Raspberry 3B(+), you can mine TurtleCoin (or other coins based on the cryptonight-turtle algo, as well as other cryptonight variants) on your Raspberry 3B…

The Future of Computing Is Distributed

Well back in 2015, we started experimenting with Single Board Computers based on the ARM architecture. We were evaluating multiple use case scenarios: TV iPlayers, Video streaming, Distributed Storage clusters, IoT Sensors applications, managing production lines and many more. It wasn’t until about end of 2017 when an idea of exploring the possibilities of those…
