Quark (QRK) Mining Calculator & Information - CoinToMine
Quark is a decentralized digital monetary system. It facilitates sending Quarks to Friends, Family Members Online Payments free of charges and charge-backs. Military Grade Encryption. No Bank or Government Control. Quark coins are based on the original idea of Bitcoin but improved, more secure, faster transaction times and zero fees. With improvements to design and security. There is also a greater coin supply with higher block rewards for miners. Quark is fully Open Source.
Here are some common myths about Quarkcoin. The facts are presented below the myths. Myth: Quarkcoin is a scamcoin Fact: Even though a very large number of coins (247 million) were mined over a relatively short time frame, there were absolutely no premined Quarkcoins. Anyone who claims that Quarkcoin is a scamcoin could easily make the same claims about Bitcoin too, since a very small number of miners took advantage of the early opportunities to mine relatively huge numbers of coins before it eventually became extremely difficult for others to do so. Neither Bitcoin or Quarkcoin are scamcoins. Their mining and block reward systems may differ in many ways, however, they are both valid and extremely secure cryptocurrencies that, should they be adopted, will eventually serve the same purpose within differing scales of market. Myth: Quarkcoin is not distributed fairly Fact: Some of the early miners have very large wallets, for sure. But the same can be said of Bitcoin. The early miners had a clear advantage there, too. You could, in fact, say the same thing about the majority of cryptocurrencies. The early bird gets the worm. Life is not fair, and neither are virtually all cryptocurrencies. If you want to buy these coins instead of mining them, as is the case with Bitcoin and Litecoin, then that is possible too. If you don't want to mine then, you can buy them. Myth: Bitcoin is the most secure cryptocurrency. Fact: Because Bitcoin uses the same basic global ledger database known as the blockchain, and that the same blockchain is shared amongst thousands of globally connected network peers, it is extremely secure. Bitcoin uses SHA256 to perform it's hashing functions, and uses a single hashing algorithm, which is far more secure than most banking security systems. However, it is not the most secure system. There are more secure systems in place. A Quarkcoin transaction is more secure than Bitcoin because it uses a deeper hashing system. Quarkcoin uses 9 hashes, and 3 of those hashes are from a randomly chosen hashing function. Myth: Quarkcoin is a useless cryptocurrency which provides no more tangible benefit than Bitcoin to those who would want to use cryptocurrencies into the future. Fact: Quarkcoin uses an improved economic model for mining coins, whereby inflation is kept very stable by first creating a large number of coins, then slowly drip feeding more coins into the system. Quarkcoin is very useful in that the transaction speeds are considerably faster than Bitcoin, which can take much longer especially if many confirmations are required before the other person accepts the transaction. Transactions are confirmed approximately every 30-40 seconds. That is much faster than Bitcoin, where transactions are usually confirmed about every 10 minutes. Myth: Quarkcoin has a very low mining block reward and this will ruin any chances of Quarkcoin ever reaching mainstream acceptance. Fact: Bitcoin had a very low mining reward, back in 2009 and 2010, if you are measuring the reward in fiat based currencies such as the US Dollar. Bitcoins were virtually worthless in 2009, and people were practically giving them away. There was a brief mention of someone sending 5000 bitcoins to a fellow Final Fantasy player. Quarkcoin may seem like it's not worth mining or bothering with right now, but the same could have been said about Bitcoin back in 2009 and 2010. These things are not set in stone, and they could quickly change. Myth: Quarkcoin is not all that popular and will never be adopted. Fact: Bitcoin was not that popular in 2009 or 2010, before large numbers of people became involved. Bitcoin, much like Quarkcoin now, was virtually worthless during much of that time frame, even though it experienced massive price spikes, since it was not all that popular. But time changes everything, at least it did with Bitcoin, and it's likely to do the same with Quarkcoin. For a fact, Bitcoin is not widely adopted by the public - yet...It may be adopted, it may not. The same applies to Quarkcoin. It may be adopted, it may not. It's still a valid cryptocurrency, whether it's popular or not. Popularity is a separate aspect that has little to do with the merits of a cryptocurrency. Neither Bitcoin nor Quarkcoin are widely accepted by the public, so you could consider neither of them truly popular. However, that can always change. And when it does change, these myths about cryptocurrencies will be seen in clear light as the false claims that they are.
So I'm really new to cryptocurrency and I choose quark-coin. Im new here, and honestly idk what to really do . Ive been mining in a pool with my laptop (acer timelineu m5 i5 processor) and im not getting the results Ive wanted. ive been mining for the past day and i bearly have .05 quark. So This is were im debating on whether i build a desktop ( and i dont even know where to begin with that) or try to buy quark with USD which apparently, No market Lets me deposit usd currency. Whats your guys suggestions?
Iv been seeing two very different sides about Quarkcoin. One side has spammers flooding chat rooms and threads about Quarkcoin being a scam. On the other side I see the same flooding about Quark having a press release or something to that nature on December 19th along with statements about China discovering this coin soon. What do you think about this coin? To me it seems so much effort is going into discarding it and all the promising news doesn't seem really concrete. Are we being played on both sides to inflate the price for a quick buck?
[Guide] No hardware to mine? How to net 6,000+Ð/day using Windows Azure
Inspired by lleti 's free guide for using Amazon Web Services. However, from what I understand due to rental costs, it is more efficient to buy doge directly than use AWS. This guide is based on utilizing the $200 credit that comes with the Windows Azure cloud computing free trial, so you will not pay anything. This is targeted at shibes with poor hardware that can only mine 50-200 doge per day, but it will work for everyone. Disclaimer: Doge rate is an estimate based on current difficulties and market. Windows Azure trial may be US only (?) Overview / How it works You will not be mining doge directly with this method. Mining doge effeciently requires a GPU, which aren't found in traditional servers. Instead, we will be using the powerful CPUs provided with Windows Azure servers to mine a CPU based crypto-currency, such as QuarkCoin or SecureCoin, and convert those to doge. Steps 1) Install your QRK or SRC wallet Ideally if you are reading this, you have installed a dogecoin-qt wallet for yourself before. We will need to do the same for either QuarkCoin or SecureCoin. This is the wallet where will will send the coins you mine with your Windows Azure servers.
These are not the only CPU coin options, but QRK and SRC are very similar (same hash function) and simple to mine. Once you have installed the wallet, it should look very similar to your DogeCoin wallet. If you have trouble downloading the blockchain ('out of sync'), look at thesethreads respectively to see which nodes you need to add to your config file. Config files are located at C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\CoinName.conf on Windows. 2) Set up a mining pool account If you have joined a mining pool for DogeCoin, it will be a very similar experience for other alt coins. See the following bitcointalk threads which have a list of mining pools:
If you would like a pool recommendation, I can recommend src.coinmine.pl and qrk.coinmine.pl; this is from personal experience, I am not affiliated with them. Once you are logged in you should also create 3 workers, as we will be setting up 3 servers, one for each server. So you should have 3 worker names, and a password set up for each worker. 3) Sign up for Windows Azure free trial Link: www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/free-trial/ You will have to provide a valid credit card and verify your account with a cell phone so they know you are a real person. This is a Microsoft product so they are reputable. Once you sign up, you will receive a $200 to use in 30 days. Remember to cancel when your credits are running out so they don't charge you. 4) Create Windows Server instances I would recommend you watch this video which walks you through the UI of the Windows Azure management site to set up the virtual machines we need. Essentially we are going to do the following:
Create 2 Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 instances with 8 CPU core / 14 GB RAM option
Create 1 Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 instance with 4 CPU core / 7 GB RAM option
Thus we have a total of 20 CPU cores to mine QRK / SRC with. We want the the most CPU power we can get without excessively burning our $200 credit. That's why 2008 R2 is used, and only 3 instances of it. 5) Remotely connect to servers and download miner This section is also covered in the video from section 4, watch it for a visual walkthrough. Once the servers have been initialized on Microsoft's end, we should be able to access them under 'Virtual Machines' at www.manage.windowsazure.com. You should see each host name and a status, and when selected there should be an additional 'Connect' button - click it. You should now be prompted to download a .rdp file. Download this for each of your 3 virtual machines to a folder you will remember. You will open this .rdp file and use the login credentials you previously specified to connect to each server. Once you are remotely connected, you should see the desktop. Open up the first icon on the taskbar that looks like a server, this is your server manager. We need to open up the 'Configure IE ESC' setting that's visible on this pane. Make sure 'Off' is selected for both admins and users on the IE ESC configuration. Now, open up the IE browser and navigate to https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9cvOfoOekSdVzZZcThLZHg4bjA/edit. Press Ctrl + S to download the entire zip to the desktop, and un-zip it. 6) Configure and start miner Again, this is pretty much covered in the video from section 4, if you prefer watching. You should now have a folder on your server's desktop named quark-v2_w64. This is the miner for both QRK and SRC. We are going to be using minerd64_sse4.exe. Create a shortcut to minerd64_sse4.exe within the same folder. We now need to add the parameters for your miner. Right click on your minerd64_sse4.exe shortcut -> Properties. Look at the target field, it should look like this:
We are going append the following format to this target field
-a quark -t 8 -o stratum+tcp://src.coinmine.pl:6020 -u user.worker -p password
-a: algorithm, both SRC and QRK use 'quark' -t: number of cores (so either 8 or 4 for our purposes) -o: mining pool information (url and port). -u: account you have for your mining pool, then a period, then a worker name -p: password that you created for the worker in step 2 So here is an example of what the target field of your shortcut should look like when you are done:
7) Profit!! If you set up your miners correctly on each Windows Server VM (I prefer to assign a separate worker to each one), you should be able to run them and see an output like this: http://i.imgur.com/3lECqSz.png. You can close your remote sessions without interrupting it. How do you get the doge, you ask? Well, using the above setup I have earned 10 SecureCoins in the past 2 days. These are worth 0.00094 bitcoins (BTC) on Cryptsy at present. A doge is worth 0.0000007 BTC at present, so if I go from SRC -> BTC -> DOGE, I can turn 5 SRC to 6,642 DOGE on Cryptsy. There are also other exchanges, I won't go into how to exchange coins on this post. Remember, this is every day for about a week, for free! Also, you can CPU mine on your own personal computers as well, not just the servers. TL;DR Mine QuarkCoin / SecureCoin using Windows Azure free trial, use Cryptsy (or other exchange) to convert to DOGE. Much more efficient than CPU mining Doge.
My understanding is that Scrypt was intended to resist ASICs and allow GPUs to be used for mining. It is clear that Scrypt ASICs exist and are currently in use. Rather than try and make an exhaustive list of the possible Scrypt miners in existence I’ll just list one to be used as a reference point. KnCMiner Titan >= 100Mh/s @ $10,000 You will note that it is currently pre-order only, but based on things like: http://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/2182nb/kncminers_ceo_sam_cole_dumping_bitcoins_worth/ It makes sense that the developers would use the miners first before selling them off. Just imagine being in their position, why would you sell something that you could use to make more money yourself? Instead they mine with it until they either have another generation of devices and/or the difficulty has increased enough that they can profit more from selling them. To quote from deadhand-:
“Imo, ASICs ultimately only benefit those who manufacture and develop them. They'll be the first to mine with them, and only once they've made enough profit, then they'll start shipping them out. Those who are lucky enough to actually receive the ASICs first will make the most profits (if any, at that point), and the BTC or DOGE that they used to actually buy the ASICs will likely be more valuable at that point anyway than the mining rewards they'd receive as a result of getting the ASICs.”
There have been previous discussion on the topic, both within Dogecoin community and elsewhere, which usually have no reason present for not switching other than wait and see if ASICs are developed.
From my understanding there is no benefit to ASICs taking over mining. Given what happened to Bitcoin it is fair to say that ASICs will completely destroy GPU mining and will increase in efficiency by several orders of magnitude regularly. That means miners will constantly need to be buying new rigs just to stay on the right order of magnitude. Since ASICs cannot be used for anything else they will be thrown out. In contrast GPUs do not increase by such large amounts (more like 20-30%) so a generation or two old may still be viable and the GPUs can be used for gaming (even sold to gamers) after mining. GPUs and such are obviously more commonly found in households and helps keep mining democratized. If one argues that none of that matters then why bother with Scrypt at all? Simply use SHA256 and the several generations of ASICs. I have heard the point used that ASICs will bring in more miners. Seems more likely that it will bring in different miners and the current GPU miners will all leave. A few may convert, but I doubt a significant percentage. Others mention that the difficulty being increased is beneficial to the currency. Seems like the only benefit to a higher difficulty is that it makes it harder to take over the network and perform 51% attacks and such. Keep in mind that is not just a function of the difficulty, but rather the number of machines in network of average size. Simply raising the number does not solve that problem as more powerful machines will require a similar scale to take over the network. Meaning if the Dogecoin network is currently composed of 50,000 identical machines and has a difficulty of 1,000 it would take just over 25,000 to take over. Whereas if the network were comprised of 50,000 identical ASICs with some high difficulty like 100,000 it would still take just over 25,000 machines. Seems like having those machines be democratized and less likely to be owned by large businesses is half the point of these currencies. Additionally, it is clear that the producers of ASICs who mine with the machines and then sell them when they are less useful are gaining the most from the system. Not all that different from the flawed fiat currencies where the rich/banks who get money first benefit from it before inflation (excellent summary). Perhaps http://wafflepool.com/mine14t8yB3PDGfZT3VppxMY4J9xiBaXUcZvKp one of the ASIC farms? Given that ASICs benefit a select few primarily and cause a pointless and endless arms race it seems rather silly not to try and avoid the ASIC take over all together. Seems more sensible to convert to Scrypt-N or similar (see Vertcoin or even Quark) Would be interesting to see how much the nethash rate would drop if the change was made.
[I am not a Fan of KayneWest and I think this coin was meant to Troll him] However mining tends be fun when hardware you own gets you coins weather its for Fun or Profit. I have spent the last 8 hours trying to get pooler-cpu miner to mine CoinyeCoins. My main goal is to see how much I can earn on a new altcoin with a low difficulty rating. I need someone to compile a working pooler-cpu miner configured for Coinye-coin for me. The reward for doing so is 0.1 BTC Im running a i7 so it should thread to 8 cores. I currently mine Bitcoins with ASIC, I GPU mine LiteCoins and I have some Virtual Servers mining Quarks. If you all reply to me and include a BTC Address I,will send 0.025 to verify the address then a second 0.025 and the last 0.05 after you email me a working miner, this is easy money if someone hooks this up for me. Thanks Settings for Stratum : STRATUM: stratum+tcp://coye.scryptcraft.com PORT: 5501 Username: Jpanime13.HPT1 Password: 123 Anyone interested please reply in this open forum, if a person agrees to build a working miner and I send them BTC a Screen Shot will be taken of me sending money to your address via the BlockChain. I am just tired of trying to figure this out My KNC Miner is a Plug N Play, and Quark wasn't that hard to set up. If this proves to be successful plan on another post from me next week when I attempt to get a USB miner running on CGminer. (For all the Shibes out their I can pay the equivalent in DOGE Coins) 'Feel like throwing this newbie some coins donate below.'

I think we all are a bit tired of topics like this one: http://www.reddit.com/QuarkCoin/comments/271n71/qrk_losing_value_steadily/ People screaming out loud why they "losing their money", why price didnt skyrocketing despite so many achievements that we have reached recently. Most of these people bought quarks at a peak of the december hype or right after it. At first they blamed the unperfection of the world, then stupidity of crypto users who just constantly chasing the hype (QRKDOGEBCDRK??) falling under manipulations and left those who "understand the real price of Quark" calculating their losses. Now one little step left for hypers to openly blame the community for doing it wrong and dont meet up 10-fold profit expectations of so-called "investors". Why don't we paint doggies on a cars? why dont tipping each other like crazy? why dont implement great features which brings value to others? Know what? Your logic is wrong.
Altcoins are moving from one bubble to another. For us who don't own thousands of bitcoins it's a stohastic, accidental process, noone can predict its next phase. Don't chase it, you will lose. There is always someone who knows more than you.
There is no mechanism of price discovery in cryptos. Since noone use it in the real world for gaining profit, noone interested to pick the most viable technology or the most dedicated community. They interested in hyping and the best option for it is a newborn coin with weak community who cannot resist obvious price manipulations. When information hype reach some point the price upward trend start to seem natural and many "investors" fall in it generating much profit for instaminers and hypers. Quark was such in december but not right now. And other market participants at first become "long-term investors" waiting for some day when the price exceed the peak of the hype (cause the coin their bought is SOOOOO amasing) but in time found themselves bought worthless crap with no reasonable explanation. They start whinning why the price is not going on to the moon cause the coin is SOO amasing and eventually blame developers and others for not holding the momentum, not adopting the next AMASING technology selling of at a huge loss and move to another part of the drama.
I assure you that I've "lost" much more than most of you as I started buying in February-March. Before that I quit my rather a low-wage job to devote all my time to cryptos, so losing that much coins is really painful for me. I've done this because quark fundamentals and after joining the board I found that the quark community is very different from other coin ones. Here are people who do understand why quark fundamentally better than not only mindless copycoins but even well-established cryptos as Peercoin, Litecoin or THE KING itself. People who understand fundamentals are the biggest capital for the bright future you could ever imagine. For myself I was part in different crypto communities for a time but only in quark among these people I sences the desire to actually create something to move forward, to be a part of the team not only a passenger. What are these misterious quark fundamentals? I personally believe they are the following:
Hash algorythm which preserve Satoshi's rule one CPU (or GPU) equals one vote in distributed consensus mechanism. It prevents huge inequality between large asic datacenters and ordinary miners. Everyone get his or her share in process no matter how big or shall he or she is.
Money emission which don't let miners to loot others work. To earn quark you need to work or sell something valuable not only plug your GPU farm or ASIC. This is why an ordinary crypto "enthusiast" hates Quark and calls it pre-mined scam or piece of crap.
When a big money enters the crypto market it will belong to people who do understand these things. They will be those who use cryptos in business to reduce fees and gain profits. And they will understand and price Quark accordingly in the true price discovery mechanism not the present imitation of one. Yes, for now Quark costs me a lot. But stop, it will cost me only if I decide to withdraw at a loss, which I won't do. I see market plunging because of the particular people, large holders of QRK who are exiting the market following the hype logic. I've reported it recently with some blockchain evidence. http://www.reddit.com/QuarkCoin/comments/26rhl1_million_quarks_unspent_since_august_2013_was/ So, it's their right to do it. Bad for them, good for us, cuase we, those who intend to stay, are able to increase our share of Quarks due to price falling. Maybe I'm wrong and going to lose everything. But I consider Quark worth fighting for and working on cause here my fighting and working will eventually bring me more than in any other place. And not only I understand it.
