NewEnglandcoin

Symbol:  NENG
New England – the birthplace of America – is filled with rich history, cultural attractions, fascinating cities, scenic towns and villages.
New England is a northeastern region of the United States comprising the states of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.  Boston has largest college student population concentration in U.S.A.  Harvard, MIT and Yale are the top well known universities in New England region.

NewEnglandcoin mission is to be one of the most decentralized and secure cryptocurrency for the region of New England, and for friends of New England globally. NENG has feature of anti-instant mining, anti-51% attacks post v1.2.0 fork.

NewEnglandcoin is clone of Litecoin, which itself is a clone of Bitcoin.  NewEnglandcoin has dogecoin like supply at 84 billion maximum NENG. This huge supply insures that NENG is suitable for retail transactions and daily use. The inflation schedule of NengEnglandcoin is actually identical to that of Litecoin. Bitcoin and Litecoin are already proven to be great long term store of value. The Litecoin-like NENG inflation schedule will make NewEnglandcoin ideal for long term investment appreciation as the supply is limited and capped at a fixed number

Mining Algorithm: Scrypt with Dynamic Difficulty

1 minute block targets
subsidy halves in 2.1m blocks (~4 years)
84,000,000,000   total maximum NENG
20000 NENG per block
Pre-mine: 1%
ICO: None
RPCPort:  6376
Port: 6377

CPU Minable Coin
Because of dynamic difficulty algorithm on top of scrypt, NewEnglandcoin is CPU Minable. Users can easily set up  full node for mining at Home PC or Mac using our dedicated cheetah software.

Research on the first forked 50 blocks on v1.2.0 core confirmed that ASIC/GPU miners mined 66% of 50 blocks, CPU miners mined the remaining 34%.

Decentralization and Community Driven
NewEnglandcoin is a decentralized coin just like bitcoin. There is no boss on NewEnglandcoin. Nobody nor the dev owns NENG. 

We know a coin is worth nothing if there is no backing from community.  Therefore, we as dev do not intend to make decision on this coin solely by ourselves.  It is our expectation that NewEnglandcoin community will make majority of decisions on direction of this coin from now on.  We as dev merely view our-self as coin creater and technical support of this coin while providing NENG a permanent home at ShorelineCrypto Exchange.

ASIC/GPU Mining Pools
Warning: due to DynDiff Algo on top of Scrypt, solo mining is recommended for ASIC/GPU miners.   Further more,
even for mining pools, small mining pool will generate better performance than big NENG mining pool because of new algo v1.2.x post hard fork.

The set up configuration of NENG for scrypt pool mining is same as a typical normal scrypt coin.  In other word, DynDiff on Scrypt algo is backward compatible with Scrypt algo.  Because ASIC/GPU miners rely on CPU miners for smooth blockchain movement, checkout bottom of "Latest News" section for A WARNING to All ASIC miners before you decide to dump big ASIC hash rate into NENG mining.

New Source/Wallet Release v1.1.1 - Enabled Dynamic Addjustment on Mining Hashing Difficulty
Title: Re: [ANN][NENG] NewEnglandcoin: A Coin 10x Faster than Bitcoin with Rich Culture
Post by: honglu69 on November 25, 2018, 12:15:20 am
Dynamic Mining Difficulty Addjustment on NENG New Wallet is major success.  NENG blockchain is back on normal.

This  new update resolved chain frozen situation days ago. Even if all ASIC miners left as they did on Nov 20,  GPU or CPU miners can continue to mine NENG on low diff.
NENG coin does not exclude ASIC miners, which have been the major mining community before Nov. 20. But our chain can not be hostage to ASIC miners.  Even if all ASIC miners leave in the future,  NENG blockchain will be fine on operation as GPU/CPU miners can pick up the position and continue mining NENG on low hashing difficulty on the new algorithm.

Exclusive for small GPU/CPU Miners - How to Steal a Block from ASIC Miners

When all ASIC miners left, sure, GPU/CPU miners can step in and mine NENG happily.  Now that ASIC miners are back , and now with 1Gh/s hashing rate. If
GPU/CPU miners join pool now, most likely would get almost nothing with huge electricity cost.

Are there any chance for CPU/GPU when ASIC miners are into NENG mining? Yes.  Below is real story of how I did it with 4 CPU windows PC, with only maybe 200 Kh/s hashing power,
less than 0.02% of total networking hashing power, still got a block mined today. Here is screen shot proof:

https://ibb.co/VSWQBds

This is the block I mined at block chain, for above screen shot:
http://nengexplorer.mooo.com:3001/tx/202b9b6c6dc290fb71d8f1dd68aa5af2288ebd1644ebbcdb763ab7cd37d48858

The reason I was able to a mine a block with CPU is because of newly implemented dynamic hashing adjustment algorithm, mining pool ASIC miners will get stuck couple of times  a day by my observation today.  When the ASIC miners stuck at pool, usually it stuck for 20 minutes up to 1 hour finding no blocks.  The new algorithm says that when the block time is more than 2 minutes, the difficulty is almost zero.  When ASIC miners stuck at pool,  CPU  GPU solo-miners can act and steal a block as I did above.  There is only one chance.  Once one block get stolen, the ASIC miners will wake up and scoop all the blocks afterwards.

When ASIC miners are into pool heavily,  CPU or GPU miners have no chance at pool. Just wait and observe the NENG blockchain movement, wait.  When the chain appears to be stuck, act immediately and solo-mine and steal a block.  Yes any one can steal a block like I did from ASIC miners with just a regular PC and a NENG wallet.

How to CPU Mine NENG with Window PC or Linux

Today  NENG blockchain becames CPU-minable almost.  The hashrate of ASIC miners are high, 1 Gh/s.  However, it apears that ASIC miners got stuck at pool every other blocks. This means
that when ASIC miners previous block was longer than 2 minutes,  PC window or Linux users can simply fire up GUI wallet,  click "help" -> click "Debug Windows" -> "Console" -> Type below text "setgenerate true".  You will be mining NENG, wait for several minutes,  you can mine one block.  Then "setgenerate false" to stop mining.  Only one block at a time. The next one or few blocks belong to ASIC miners.  Repeat next time when ASIC miners got stuck again.

digestion of transcripts from DISCORD channel conversation on the past several days of NENG blockchain issue on  Tue Dec 12, to Wed Dec 13, 2018:


flex.hit 12/07/2018
ASIC are stuck non stop last 2 days .  i mine with 150 mh only


honglu69 Last Saturday at 11:54 AM
Yes, I noticed that. ASIC got stuck frequently now.
I only mined one or two blocks. Most non ASIC blocks were mined by others, I guess CPU miners.

henry Last Wednesday at 7:54 PM
what plans do we have to get this coin accepted at businesses in the new england usa area.
i'd love to help once i know you're comfortable with website mining pools exchanges etc.

honglu69  Last Wednesday at 8:09 PM
@henry because NENG is decentralized coin with no boss. Just take my opinion as one member proposal, not necessarily the fact of path forward.
I forsee NENG to have similar org like NYC, to have some sort of community election group to control neng future.
Community then will have mass marketing action, maybe regular  meeting in New England area , a meetup

henry Last Wednesday at 8:09 PM
is the blockchain hung? i'm still loading from 4 hours  ago.

honglu69 Last Wednesday at 8:10 PM
Blockchain is fine. It does require CPU miners to smoothout
I will come back mine some blocks with PC window 10. ASIC gets hung all the time

henry Last Wednesday at 8:13 PM
ok. thats some good ideas.

honglu69 Last Wednesday at 8:15 PM
We will release new tool upgrade soon. The tool will automatically mine neng when ASIC stuck, stop mining when ASIC is good

henry Last Wednesday at 8:16 PM
ok.
i get confused whe nyou tal kabout it being stuck, as it seem my asic doesn't stop hashing and getting accepted hashes

honglu69 Last Wednesday at 8:17 PM
When this tool called cheetah is done, I will run one version of CPU miner in Linux pc
@henry you know ASIC miners are stuck when 3 minutes past with no block

henry Last Wednesday at 8:18 PM
looks like 5 hrs so far

honglu69 Last Wednesday at 8:19 PM
OK, I was busy with other, not aware of 5 hours of no block. I will come back to mine one block with window 10 wallet

henry Last Wednesday at 8:21 PM
if i set up a rig running on the network will that find the block s when rig gets stuck, or do i need to do something
special

i mean, whe nasic gets stuck

honglu69 Last Wednesday at 8:22 PM
@henry current only PC Linux or window 10 can mine block when it is stuck
I think GPU gets stuck too. Mainly the software has assumption in difficulty, they think it is fixed number. But it changed after 2 minutes of no block

henry Last Wednesday at 8:24 PM
i have a win 10 machine i ca nsetup to just run  cpu against the neng bc, will that help if i just keep it running ?
honglu69 Last Wednesday at 8:25 PM
@henry It will, but tedious manual labor work. You can follow my guide in bitcointalk Ann how to CPU mine
CPU wallet needs to stop mining when the chain is normal. Only start when it is stuck
For a 4 core window 10, it takes about 6 minutes to mine a block when bc is stuck
henry Last Wednesday at 8:28 PM
im trying to stop the loss of 5 hours of ming whe nits stuck since i dont watch all of my machines very closely all the time.

honglu69 Last Wednesday at 8:28 PM
For a 2 core Linux pc, I think it takes 10 minutes to mine a block when bc is stuck

henry Last Wednesday at 8:28 PM
was hoping if i had the cpu on all the time it would keep the asic going.

honglu69Last Wednesday at 8:28 PM
@henry:thumbsup:

henry Last Wednesday at 8:29 PM
my wallet is definately stuck at 4 hours

honglu69 Last Wednesday at 8:31 PM
Last time the bc was stuck for 5 hours, I woke up in the morning and used CPU and mined one block
I think how long ASIC or  GPU will stuck on neng is unpredictable. NENG is CPU minable coin and rely on CPU to have smooth blockchain

henry Last Wednesday at 8:35 PM
so, you dont want us mining it with an asic ? just our cpu's ?

honglu69 Last Wednesday at 8:37 PM
Because of almost death of NENG on NOV 20, I do not think neng will go back to old days, a 100%  ASIC coin

henry Last Wednesday at 8:38 PM
i'm good with whatever you choose, but i thought it was ok to use my asic and my gpu rigs - and will stop if you only want to make sure cpu minable is only way to be done.
i have  a few cpu rigs i can setup here just need to knw i'll find blocks if i spend the time to set the mup.

honglu69 Last Wednesday at 8:39 PM
No need to stop ASIC, My intention is not to forbid ASIC or GPU, just s limitation.

henryLast Wednesday at 8:39 PM
ok colio.

honglu69Last Wednesday at 8:41 PM
The end goal is decentralization, and security against  hack, particularly risk of 51% attack.
The planned upgrade in next two quarters is likely to limit ASIC more, but not forbid ASIC .

honglu69 Last Wednesday at 9:09 PM
NENG blockchain should be normal now. I mined one block with 4 core CPU in Linux

What is Cheetah_Cpuminer?
NewEnglandcoin (NENG) blockchain has dynamic difficulty adjustment algorithm which may trigger ASIC miners to get stuck on NENG blockchain finding no blocks from several minutes to several hours.

Cheetah_cpuminer will automatically start mining at local PC when ASIC miners get stuck. Cheeta_cpuminer will stop mining when ASIC miners are smoothly generating blocks

v1.1.2 is tested under  Windows 10, Mac OSX 10.11 and Ubuntu Linux 16.04

NENG block chain has successfully forked off  at 273501 height with time stamp of Sun, 17 Feb 2019 16:56:44 GMT, below block.

Below is the first forked block link

v1.2.0 Hard Fork has been major success!

Research on first forked 50 blocks confirmed that shortest block time was 4 seconds.  Essentially fast block time or instant mining has been stopped.  Historically, fast blocks would
be 1 in 20 blocks , some times 1 or 2 blocks in within 10 block stretch.  The dynamic diff algorithm implemented in v1.2.0 is working.

Of the first forked 50 blocks, 17 blocks were mined by CPU miners,  33 blocks were mined by ASIC or GPU miners.  In other word, the first 50 blocks under new algorithm, ASIC/GPU miners got 66% of total rewards, CPU miners obtained 34% of total rewards.  Ratio split on ASIC/GPU/CPU miners are not constant, could be subject to changes depending the difficulty and mining rigs distribution.  However, this 66/34 split of rewards is within expectation of our original plan for the v1.2.0.

Found one issue after the hard fork,  the original plan was to raise the spike difficulty level within 3 seconds to the level of dogecoin.   The current dogecoin difficulty is about 2 million,
litecoin difficulty is about 7 million.

However,  the v1.2.0 math is off by 10x.  My mistake. The spike difficulty is only 1/10 of dogecoin level. Here is screenshot I obtained on the small ASIC rig that we ran.  Below screenshot is from  either Findblocks or Miners.rocks pool. We actually tested on both pools and got similar screenshot like below:

https://ibb.co/k0xYgGT


Note in the screenshot, the mining pool said "Network difficulty changed to 244k".    The desired result is 2440k. 
ASIC mining pool should set difficulty to the base level, which is 16 or 25 whatever, probably several orphaned blocks got ASIC pool confused and used the 3 seconds spike difficulty instead.
Whatever, this tells us that the spike difficulty is only at 0.2 million level,  one tenth of dogecoin, or 3% of litecoin difficulty level.

On the otherhand, NewYorkcoin  current mining difficulty is  928.  The NENG spike difficulty is 263x larger than that of NYC.  This issue is not so urgent to fix.  We will table it for now
and do a bundled security upgrade in 2019 Q2 together with other issues TBD.

It appears that now it is exclusive mining period for ASIC/GPU miners.  There are probably no rewards for CPU miners for now. Not sure why.  Still learning and studying the NENG blockchain.

The ASIC miners got stumbled into 244K zone, thinking the difficulty base level is 244,000.  Actually big pool ASIC miners are not doing so well, Blocks are mined by big ASIC for sure, but not that much rewards.

The big winner now is small solo ASIC/GPU miners.  I actually now am running a small ASIC USB stick at 3 Mh/s hash rate, getting blocks virtually very two minutes. Probably true if someone runs a GPU solo miners for similar results with big rewards.  For the v1.2.0 is encouraging small ASIC/GPU to go alone with solo mining setup.

Update on solo-mining small ASIC rigs:  gave up on solo-mining setup messing.   Only good for couple of hours and then were hit with "all pools are dead" error. 
Not worth the effort.      :-\

Re-join the two pools here at NENG.

One Major Issue found on v1.2.0 ,  for unknown reason,  as soon as ASIC miners stumbled into 244k difficulty zone,  NENG is no longer CPU minable.  virtually 100% of mining rewards go to ASIC or GPU miners,  pool or solo miners.

Because CPU mining feature of NENG is important coin feature. This is major issue.  We will give a day tomorrow to observe NENG blockchain movement and work on the solution.
Until further notice from here, it is not worth trying Cheetah CPU mining for now because pretty much 100% of rewards goes to ASIC or GPU miners.

CPU mining were back just minutes ago.  This was likely to be difficulty reset period.  It used to be super fast movement, 1 second per block for ASIC miners for 1440 blocks.
Because v1.2.0 upgrade removed instant mining, the reset took much longer to the point of slow movement on very low diff. 

But now the base diff is up so that CPU mining is back into play.

Dev Policy on Checkpoints on NewEnglandcoin

NewEnglandcoin v1.2.1 update is checkpoints security upgrade to secure the blockchain on hard fork.  Checkpoints technique is controversial method in blockchain world.
In fact, bitcoin itself has not performed checkpoints for a long long time.  The issue with checkpoints is that decentralization of  a coin means that nobody has central control on blockchain.
Certainly NENG dev does not intend to control NewEnglandcoin blockchain and merely view ourself as tech support.  However, frequent checkpoints on a coin means the coin is centrally controlled by dev team.

In order to fulfill decentralization goal of NewEnglandcoin, we as dev do not plan to frequently apply checkpoints technique.  We only intend to apply that on hard fork in the future.
Even for hard fork, we do not intend to impose our forking view by ourselves.  Any future hard fork will have several weeks to a month of pre-annoucement on hard fork in bitcointalk or discord for the intention.  We will also issue release of new software version one week in advance in order for members to prepare fork. The new release will have 1 week compatible blockchain with older version and will have fork a week later.   Therefore, 1 week to 1 month time will be available for NENG members to express any opposing opinions on fork, and there will be minimum of 1 week period to allow DEV to cancel or modify hard fork plans in the future.   We believe such procedure in place on NewEnglandcoin  from now on will surely confirm that
any future checkpoints on hard fork is not indication of any centralization.  NewEnglandcoin will continue to be a decentralized cryptocurrency and controlled by nobody just like bitcoin, litecoin or dogecoin.
 
The next hard fork or potentially a checkpoint on NewEnglandcoin will be Q3 of 2019, to be determined by our research on the results of v1.2.x release.

There are a lot more CPU miners on NewEnglandcoin  than months ago when I first posted on bitcointalk altcoin mining thread.  At that point, my old linux PC can mine 1.5 million NENG per day on Cheetah.
Now the reward is much less, maybe 1/5 of what used to be.  Still CPU mining can be fun and less demanding if you only do it casually on your own PC when you work or read online. It can be on low resource without affecting other activities.  It adds a reward on Desktop PC or laptop.  Running a full node,  mining 300,000 NENG per day on a PC is still quite impressive rewarding CPU mining experience.

GPU solo miners and small ASIC solo miners probably are the dominant force on DynDiff Scrypt coin NENG mining together with CPU miners.  Big ASIC miners are disadvantaged by the new algorithm hard fork upgrade recently.

Announcement of NENG Fiat Project for all U.S. Residents

As part of disclosure, ShorelineCrypto is investigating Fiat USD/NENG purchase offering using our parent company banking relations and Square service offerings.    We believe the USD/NENG purchase offering can be launched in multiple phases starting from 2019 Q2 to all U.S. residents by imposing a very low purchase limit while ShorelineCrypto can be still complying with all the anti-money laundering laws in U.S.A.  Legally, cost of doing fiat/NENG in USA is extremely high because of all the banking, money service regulations. However, there should be minimum cost or regulation and no need for KYC if we only allow small dollar purchase of NENG with strict maximum cap at ShorelineCrypto. 
The motivation of NENG Fiat project is to boost the NENG acceptance as important crypto currency for retail and trading usage and improve the liquidity of NENG trading.  Currently a buyer buy NENG from exchange, and decide to sell NENG immediately, the buyer would face 50% immediate loss because the bid/ask spread on NENG trading is very high and liquidity is poor on NENG.  When this fiat project launches at ShorelineCrypto,  ShorelineCrypto will operate hedging positions using Square bitcoin service and convert to DOGE to buy NENG at equivalent doge pair price in ShorelineCrypto exchange so that buyer of NENG will no longer face huge loss from immediate sell in the future.
We believe miners and traders should also see better NENG trading price in the future so that they can dump their mining rewards at higher price because of liquidity boost from Fiat project hedging.
In the long run, a successful fiat project on NENG can put NewEnglandcoin as niche alternative for small dollar fiat entry into crypto market for U.S. residents.  Currently most U.S. buyers convert their USD to bitcoin at Coinbase or Germini etc, then transfer their bitcoin to an exchange to sell for dogecoin or any other altcoins.  It works well for large amount at $100 USD or more even on a bitcoin transaction fee of $1.  However, if one wants to buy or sell $1 to $5 USD dollar, the bitcoin transaction fees are too high.    Here we can offer a low fee method of buying NewEnglandcoin with $1 to $5 USD, then convert to dogecoin at almost no loss, and then transfer the dogecoin out of ShorelineCrypto to wherever you want to trade or use dogecoin.
Bitcoin is gold, Litecoin is silver, Dogecoin can be said as copper.  Dogecoin has huge listings at multiple exchanges and can be converted to bitcoin easily at exchange with low fees.  With NENG/DOGE trading pair at ShorelineCrypto exchange and utilizing the capability of dogecoin popularity and low transaction fees, this NENG fiat project has the potential to put NENG into important coin in U.S.A crypto market.

Announcement for Mobile Miner Project Initiation
Immediately today, we initiate a new mobile miner project for evaluations and implementation. The NENG mobile miner will offer Android/iPhone users to mine NENG on their cell phone and receive NENG reward daily. Of course, the mobile mining is not a true mining, just a simulation on cell phones to allow users to receive rewards, say 10 NENG per day.
At this early stage, we foresee the eventual working mobile miner for NENG will be some javascript based web page where cell phones can register and click for rewards daily.  The project is going to be planned and implemented in multiple quarters and the funding source will come from donation from NENG communities.

Conclusion
NewEnglandcoin (NENG) is underpriced at only fraction of market cap of NewYorkcoin while the security of NewEnglandcoin is significant better against 51% attacks.  Even on population or GDP comparison against NYC, NENG should trade significantly higher.
Also stay tuned in bitcointalk Ann or DISCORD for further news of NENG Fiat project and NENG Mobile Miner project.
