Tromp's solvers

Later tonight, I'll be uploading a contract to Ethereum mainnet to raise 20 BTC for open sourcing John Tromp's GPU miner, with a deadline of 14 October 2016 (in less than four days) at 12noon EDT (16:00 UTC). I'll do a test run through several accounts I own and any volunteers who happen to be awake, then I'll post the annotated transcript from the blockchain to explain how the contract works. The contract will accept contributions in ETH, and OgNasty will accept contributions in BTC. Both w…

Before donating to be sure, the CPU miner will be open sourced as well if the funds are reached correct?

Could we get an official one day extension on the donation time then? 3 days is a short time especially if the escrow has taken an extra day. I know I don't even check these forums for a few days at a time (and I am sure others do the same)

+1 @squarenapkin …on this forum you can almost feel that urge of the sellers to take our money before oct 14th, I really do not understand why :wink:

Let’s wait for that date, then we can bid if the mining contest only propose underperforming software.

I’d be glad to participate in OSS funding after this date.

I will extend the deadline from noon Oct 14 to noon Oct 15 if the crowdfund has reached 13.3 BTC by the former time.

And yes, the open sourcing is for both the CPU solvers and the GPU solver.

Hi all, I am in the final stages of running the Ethereum automated contract for crowdfunding the open-sourcing of Tromp's solvers, to fund his Cuckoo Cycle bounties. For those of you who trust Tromp (which I do), you can donate to him directly via BTC. For those who trust OgNasty, our requested arbiter, we will post a new address soon.

For those who think trust is nice but would rather back it up with an unstoppable, distributed world multicomputer, our Ethereum contract will accept ETH (which you can convert into via Shapeshift.io) and if passed, will send these funds to OgNasty in BTC (again using Shapeshift).

I'm currently waiting for my geth node to sync, as parity appears to have problems accepting Solidity contracts compiled to the geth standard. Let me know if you have questions, or feel free to just voice your support. Tromp and I will keep posting updates in this thread.
