What is happening with XUN?

Post by Superminator » Thu Jan 04, 2018 11:37 am

Hi,
What is happening with XUN?. The last four days the mining pool is unstable. The mining is stopped. I have to restart my software several times.
I do not receive any reward from January 1st.
Also, XUN was disabled yesterday in Stocks Exchange and has not yet returned.
Can you explain what is happening?. Thanks you.
Best regards.

I don't know but weird things are happening with XUN. Just before being disabled from stocks.exchange XUN reached high value in this site. It went from 60-70 satoshis to above 200 satoshis.

Many of you are aware of the delay in XUN blocks last 2 days. We are now going to explain why this is happening:

1st - We had a high load from Nicehash with about 5 Mh/s which made the difficulty raise to over 300M 



Solution:
We can't prevent nicehash on community pool. We are informing every community member who want to start his own pool to keep the Nicehash port closed and set max difficulty to 200K so we can prevent very high difficulty.
To prevent the use of Nicehash means that we have to prevent people from creating pools by locking the coin pool source and this is something we don't want to do because we want to keep the coin source free for everyone. By free I mean open, anyone can use and modify.


2nd - We had same time with Nicehash attack another Ddos attack on main pool sockets.

Solution:
Attacks been traced and attackers ips been blocked.


3rd- Some pool owners tried to steal from the miners using double spend, We have seen about 7 transactions where miner tried to get block reward twice or higher reward per block.

17:37:41.436655 ERROR Coinbase transaction spend too much money: 1184.199592, block reward is 150.001000
17:37:41.436748 INFO Block <93d55fc744ccbcb8278e33294ab8551be733e115e6cf86ac5f97faa65c2fa8d7> has invalid miner transaction
17:37:41.436857 INFO transaction use more money then it has: use 1847.902408, have 1754.528408

16:42:49.723093 ERROR Coinbase transaction spend too much money: 1186.569065, block reward is 152.370473
16:42:49.723182 INFO Block <3b72e592895deae9efeb75cbf3b1ae82f59c1bf288387eaf45ab5d7894c2c584> has invalid miner transaction
16:42:50.224248 INFO transaction use more money then it has: use 1847.902408, have 1754.528408


Solution:

Such payments will never be registered in the network and will always be rejected.
What happen is that the network will drop this transaction between 2-7 days in a way that the network pushing this fake transaction to the next block. This make it harder for the blocks to be found because the failed transactions moving with them and the network needs to find the right amount of the block reward to send out.

Please be patient, this issue will go over with time. Keep mining because your hashes is arriving to the pool and they are added to your shares and you will be paid for them. Nothing to worry about.

Guys I see a few discussion about what is happening with XUN. its only a temporary situation as shown in the picture the diff went up because of heavy cloud mining power being sent to XUN. The block is taking more time to be mined since diff is up but since then team is working on updating the code so that it does not happen again if heavy cloud miners decides to send their mining power to XUN. 
On the other hand the exchange was doing maintenance and now all is back on running smoothly with a new trading pair for XUN. Since BTC is expensive to transfer etc we added a new pair. I will not tell which one please have the pleasure to go and check it out :)
