Where can I find some guidelines on how to program a merged mining transaction?


Hello Mary,

We solved this as follows

1) one person holds a main working copy of project (with main back-up held in separate location)

2) on regular basis,everyone places copy or back-up of own project into archive

3) directly after back-up, all other team members export the 'changes' in their own copies since previous exchange date

3) if face to face can export to a thumb drive or if remote to shared server, dropbox or cloud storage folder

4) the person with main working copy

a) imports other team member's project exportfiles into main working copy

Nvivo merges the changes but be careful that you are all running the same version Nvivo - not always apparent when people have selected different program updating options (automatic versus manual).

The person doing the merge may/probably will have to shut down and restart Nvivo after each new import to force it to show the changes to the background database but don't be too...

Basically the idea is that you assemble a Namecoin block and hash it, and then insert that hash into a Bitcoin block. Now when you solve the Bitcoin block at a difficulty level greater to or equal to the Namecoin difficulty level, it will be proof that that amount of work has been done for the Namecoin block. The Namecoin protocol has been altered to accept a Bitcoin block (solved at or above the Namecoin difficulty level) containing a hash of a Namecoin block as proof of work for the Namecoin block. The Bitcoin block will only be acceptable to the Bitcoin network if it is at the difficulty of the Bitcoin network.

The Bitcoin block chain gets a single extra hash when a merged mining block is accepted, and the Namecoin block chain gets a little bit more (because it includes the Bitcoin block) when a merged mining block is accepted. However, because of the Merkle Tree, the entire Bitcoin block doesn’t need to be included in the Namecoin tree, just the top level hashes (so the...

Data mining is a process with many stages. For more information about the overall flow of a data mining solution, see Data Mining Concepts (Analysis Services - Data Mining).

After you have identified the problem you want to solve, you can use Business Intelligence Development Studio to develop your data mining solution. For an overview of the development process in Business Intelligence Development Studio, see Data Mining Projects (Analysis Services - Data Mining).

A critical part of any data mining solution is to identify and obtain relevant data, clean the data, and integrate it into your solution. For more information about data integration and data cleaning using SQL Server Integration Services, see Profiling Data with the Data Profiling Task and Viewer and Typical Uses of Integration Services.

When you have secured the right kind of data for analysis, you can use Business Intelligence Development Studio to model the data, analyze the results, make...

Cryptocurrency miners often focus on mining only one coin at a time. While that may seem to be the most efficient solution, the concept of merged mining should not be overlooked by any means. In fact, merged mining does not take away any hashing power from the coin users are mining, yet it allows them to earn additional currencies on the side.

Merged Mining Is An Underappreciated Process

As the term “merged mining” suggests, this protocol allows users to mine multiple cryptocurrencies at the same time. For example, some mining pools who allow merged mining give bitcoin miners an option to earn additional currencies, as we covered earlier. However, it is also worth noting merged mining is not unique to bitcoin by any means, as we will discuss later on in this article.

Merged mining can only be achieved once there are multiple currencies using the same algorithm. In the bitcoin example, it is possible to merge mine Namecoin and a few other coins which use the...

Ethereum is quite difficult to get mining on windows - although with a bit of help and following the tutorial below you can get it up and running and start your own ethereum mining project in 15 mins. We're going to show you how to start mining Ethereum on your GPU and CPU with Windows 64 bit in this guide. You will need to download two programs and need to have a decent GPU with more than 1GB of memory to get the most bang for your buck in terms of mining as Ethereum works on a memory hard hashing technique which GPU's are best at.

You can also mine Ethereum Classic (ETC) if you start your geth in Step 7 with the param --oppose-dao-fork. Read this if you want to understand what Ethereum Classic is.

Running a CPU you might be able to generate 0.15 Mega Hashes whilst with a decent GPU with enough memory you could be doing upwards 25 Mega Hashes (you can choose a GPU to mine ether here and use our guide on how to choose a GPU to mine ether). So in terms of total...

In this post I will depart shortly from my classical technical viewpoint and enter the quicksands of opinions. But I’ll come back, don’t worry. The idea of the proof-of-work powered block-chain, while powerful, has lead us to a situation where many people sees Bitcoin mining as a wasteful and vicious activity. Articles against Bitcoin mining can be read here, here and here. Articles in favor of Bitcoin mining can be found here.

But even if economists discover that Bitcoin mining is more efficient and less wasteful than state money printing, and even if nothing better could be done, people may still perceive mining as something that should be avoided. In a few years we may have Greenpeace groups protesting a the doors of every Bitcoin related company, claiming that we’re hurting the ecosystem. And still, nobody has come with a better idea to replace a plain old PoW. A Proof-of-Stage / Proof-of-work or consensus hybrid system, while being more power efficient, pose additional...

A corporate merger or acquisition can have a profound effect on a company’s growth prospects and long-term outlook. But while an acquisition can transform the acquiring company literally overnight, there is a significant degree of risk involved, as mergers and acquisitions (M&A) transactions overall are estimated to only have a 50% chance of success. In the sections below, we discuss why companies undertake M&A transactions, the reasons for their failures, and present some examples of well-known M&A transactions.

Why do companies engage in M&A?

Some of the most common reasons for companies to engage in mergers and acquisitions include –

Become bigger: Many companies use M&A to grow in size and leapfrog their rivals. While it can take years or decades to double the size of a company through organic growth, this can be achieved much more rapidly through mergers or acquisitions. Pre-empt competition: This is a very powerful motivation for mergers and acquisitions,...

A TechRepublic member is trapped in the chicken/egg situation that far too many entry-level IT programmers find themselves in: Businesses do not like to hire people without experience, and many businesses are not willing to train. If so many companies aren't open to hiring people without experience, how does someone get experience? Unfortunately, this scenario is a major issue for many IT pros.

In my long running, back-and-forth discussion with this member, here are three ways I suggested that he kick his career into high gear.

#1: Work for free (or close to it)

While the corporate world may not always be eager to hire people with little or no experience, the non-profit world is often delighted (or at least willing) to take volunteers with little or no experience. I got my start as a programmer in high school by volunteering for a local home for developmentally disabled adults. I worked on Excel spreadsheets to manage their finances, I put together a Web site...

This a step by step guide on how to setup your own crypto-currency mining pool.

This guide is out-dated, it has now been replaced by Setup Your Own Mining Pool. Please refer to the new guide if you want to setup your own mining pool. This guide will still exist and serve as a legacy guide for reference. All things in this guide still work, however MPOS and NOMP are out-dated. We highly suggest you use the New Guide.

I have ran large mining pool operations, and have helped out at several other operations. I am creating this guide because I feel like more people should have the ability to run their own pool, whether it be for their own miners or just out of curiosity to understand how it all works. This is by no means meant to be a guide so you can setup your own professional mining pool operation. Running your own mining pool that other miners other then yourself will use is not an easy undertaking, and requires extensive systems administration experience as...
