  RASPBERRY PI 3 MODEL B+ V Orange pi prime
Posted by: incadar - 10-05-2018, 07:45 AM - Forum: Skycoin - No Replies


i see a raspberry Pi build approved for the testnet up above , i can get RPI much easier than orange as have to import.

is there a big performance difference as they seem to have same CPU?

sorry just relished wrong area, have moved it to skywire

  CX Installation (Noobs & Newbies)
Posted by: Docukno - 09-13-2018, 04:53 AM - Forum: Development - Replies (3)

I have been (and still am) struggling to find a hassle-free, "noob"-friendly, first-time-work, clear, unambiguous description of a CX installation process for Windows 10 (and Windows 7 for my secondary laptop) which includes a simple editor as well. 

All the descriptions I have tried come with ambiguous and or incomplete and or vague instructions and or assume that the user has other existing IDE's in place. Nothing for a complete noob who wants to try a new programming paradigm 'afforded' by CX! After all, CX (like Skywire) is key to Skycoin's success.

  benchmark node?
Posted by: boatman - 08-17-2018, 03:02 AM - Forum: Skywire - Replies (1)

is there a way to stress test a node? like some sort of benchmark?
how would it even be measured? transfers/sec? 
I want to know if over clocking improves anything. 
or are there any utilities that will let me know the throughput of the node or max through put?

  backup node keys?
Posted by: boatman - 08-15-2018, 03:46 AM - Forum: Skywire - Replies (1)

so, I want to back up by skywire node keys. is this possible?
I want to upgrade the hardware of my node. I.E. pi 3 to Pine A64
so I would have to install everything again. and that means I would get a new public key.
to keep my place in the white list I would need to keep the same node public key.

this is why I need to backup my public key. 
if anyone has a better solution then i would like to hear it. like if I can change the public key on the form for getting white listed without getting my place in the line to get while listed reset, then that would be great.

  Skywire Hardware
Posted by: ingwa - 08-12-2018, 10:30 AM - Forum: Skywire - No Replies

Hi everybody,

Is there a place where I can find out about the different hardware projects that are being developed and their current status?

The reason I am asking is because I have become very interested in the Skywire/Skycoin vision and I think it has a lot of promise. I work in a company that does telematics units for automotive and one of my friends/colleagues there is a very good hardware designer. We have discussed what is needed for a cheap and scalable Skywire node and we have come up with a design that we think will fulfill all of the requirements while still being cheap.

It consists of a motherboard with:
 - one control CPU with RAM and flash memory
 - one integrated router chip
 - WiFi/Bluetooth chip
 - several (up to 8) DIMM holders where you can plug in Raspberry Pi Computer Modules, each containing a quad-core CPU, RAM and soldered flash.

The cheapest node would be only the motherboard and an antenna, and the most advanced one being the motherboard + 8 RPi computer modules, which would be very similar to the official Skycoin Miner, but much cheaper.

We have a small company together on the side from our day jobs and we have great contacts from our employer with certification authorities around the globe, so we think that we can pull this off in ~6 months for a prototype and ~1 year for the finished product. 

It would be awesome if this could be sanctioned by the Skycoin project. But we don't want to do it if there are already other projects along the same line which are much further ahead.

But first we would like to see the full list of requirements for a Skywire Node.  Is there such a list anywhere?

Information Pine A64 DIY Miner
Posted by: skyguy - 08-12-2018, 06:22 AM - Forum: Skywire - Replies (14)

The Pine A64 Mini PC matches the spec of the skyminer orange pi prime boards (64Bit Quad-core CPU with 2GB RAM). They cost $32 a board ($40 with a case) and work perfectly as a DIY miner. I've personally built a pine miner and are really happy with the build quality and performance. A big thanks to Christian Ott for suggesting them

To assist the community, I've created some Armbian images (below) which will help to quickly configure a 1 to 8 node miner. All images have the latest skywire version installed and all nodes have scripts that autostart at boot and connect to the monitor node


Mini-PC Board


Power cable

5V 2A USB wall charger required per board. For multiple boards, a powerful USB charging station is required

If you want to build something that matches the official skyminer, buy a clusterboard with 7x A64 modules and an extra Pine A64 mini-pc board


Clusterboard Power Supply - also supports an ATX PSU

A64 Modules

Mini ITX case 

16GB MicroSD cards required for each module / board

Pre-configured A64 skywire images 

(Use 7zip or winrar to extract the .img files and Win32DiskImager to flash them to the sd card)

**These images are for the Pine A64 LTS Mini-PC board and Sopine Module. Default root password is armbian1234

  pureVPN install.
Posted by: normohl - 08-04-2018, 01:56 PM - Forum: Skywire - Replies (3)

I bought a lifetime subscription years ago to pureVPN and figured it would be handy to use for this project. I found a tutorial on how to use it on openwrt below.


Would it be of any advantage to follow the pinned tutorial below over the link posted above?

  Whitelisting questions
Posted by: ingwa - 08-02-2018, 02:58 PM - Forum: Skywire - Replies (5)

Hi, I have a couple of questions regarding getting a whitelisting for a DIY skyminer. that I couldn't find the answer to.

I have a miner running right now with a single RPi3B that I used as a test unit for my experimentation. I have 2 more pies, but these are 3B+'es and I will set them up tomorrow and get them running now that I have ironed out all the issues with the first one and started to understand the software setup. 

I have a number of questions regarding this:
1. In the whitelisting form, there is a question about architecture. If I proceed as I outline above, I will have a mixed setup of RPi 3B and 3B+'es. Is this allowed? In that case, what do I choose in the form?

2. Now that I have understood the whole process I will get me 5 more pi's and add them to the cluster. Can I register the setup tomorrow (3 pi's) and then update the registration when I have the 5 more or should I wait until it's all done? Also, the first 3 will likely not be a very beautiful setup, but will be 3 normal Pi's just sitting on a desk. When I get the 5 more, I will add a nice box to it so that it will look better as well. Will this hamper my chances?

3. If I register tomorrow, it will be the 2nd of August. In other words I will have a lot of time to get the 75% uptime needed. Is it allowed to start after the 1st day of a month and still get the reward for that month if the total uptime is > 75% of the month?

  whitelist web registration issue
Posted by: teparker - 07-24-2018, 03:18 AM - Forum: Skywire - Replies (9)

I built an 8 node Raspberry Pi 3 B+ system but I'm unable to whitelist it using http://www.skycoin.net/whitelist.  I enter all of my information, click submit, and the button just changes to "submitting" and sits.  It has been over 10 hours with no change.  Originally I did not fill out Telegram as I had no account, so I created one and added that after refreshing.  Scrolling up through the page I don't see any red text (issues with city and pictures the first couple of times).

I have tried using Firefox, Edge, and Chrome all with the same issue.

Any idea what else I should try?

Lightbulb CH
Posted by: Jai ddoos - 07-20-2018, 07:54 AM - Forum: CryptoCurrency - Replies (2)

Coin Hours talk has been heating up and people are getting excited about CH gaining value. Skydex is coming and devs have hinted at a CH/SKY swap update in the new wallet release.

Its all speculation at the moment, I wonder what the future holds. Synth gave away billions on Telegram last week.

What are your thoughts on what will happen with Coin Hours?
