I would like to inform you about the progress in the development of merged mining for Earthcoin.I now have the complete source code in the repository where everything needed to run merged mining is implemented:
You may see the node in the network as a client of this verion:”subversion”: “/Earthcoin:188.8.131.52/”,”protocolversion”: 70018,
Wallet is now albe to sync and send transactions.
See a test transaction:http://api.eacpay.com:9000/transaction/4a924711723836e638515c9165eb5635e13f9809f18bc77095c677e4ab687d33
Now I’m moving to the testnet to thoroughly test the merged mining.Then I will finish the code for structured transaction messages sending,
which I’ve worked on before.Also note that then you will need to upgrade the c-language part of the source code of your mobile wallet.It remains to be decided whether we will keep the possibility of conventional mining or only merged mining will be allowed.
We also need to agree on which block height to set the start of merged mining so that users, pools and exchange offices have enough time to upgrade.It is possible that after the merged mining will start, some users may refuse to upgrade and the network will split.If this happens, I will only support the new upgraded version.
