philosopherstone-scrypt-crypto

The ‘squared circle’ or ‘squaring the circle’ is a 17th century alchemical glyph or symbol for the creation of the Philosopher’s Stone. The Philosopher’s Stone was supposed to be able to transmute base metals into gold and perhaps be an elixir of life. Philosopherstone (PHS) – a fork of Diamond, with several algorithms fixed and improved. It is decendent of Novacoin/PPCoin with Pow/PoS. It combines the great features from Luckycoin (random blocks) and Florincoin (transaction message), is launched! No Premine!

There were a couple of new PoW/PoS coins launched recently, most have problems with PoS generation. Either we see zero-coin PoS blocks generated, or the generation is not accurately reflected in desired PoS percentage. In Philosopherstone we fixed these issues, and after 5 days the PoS blocks will be generated reflecting the precise interest rate defined by the coin (in this case 50% annual interest or 3.44% monthly interest).

Proof of stake coin is more secure and is much more resilient to 51% attack. Since 51% hashpower is not enough to execute the 51% attack. The attackers must also have at least 51% stake in the coin. Philosopherstone provides annual interest rate of 50%, for stakes that are not moved during the period. This equivalent to 3.44% monthly interest. PoS blocks will be generated if the stake is held for more than 5 days.

1gh-pts-mining-pool-gpu

The last 24 hours we tested mining Protoshares at the 1GH PTS mining pool using their GPU miner along with a single AMD R9 Radeon 280X graphics card to see what we can expect in terms of mined PTS and check the profitability if PTS mining with GPU versus LTC mining with GPU. With the difficulty of the Litecoin going back higher and the increase of the price of the Protoshares lately with the boom of GPU mining it is interesting to see what is more profitable to mine with your graphics cards.

The current Litecoin difficulty of 3300 ensures that with a single graphics card such as the Radeon 280X that we’ve used you are going to be mining about 0.2195 LTC per day. That is the earnings if you are directly mining LTC and not mining alternative cryptos that you then trade for LTC giving you higher profit.

The two CPUs we’ve used for mining are:
– AMD R9 Radeon 280X graphics card running at 1050/1500 clocks

The 1GH pool we used for PTS mining has:
– 3.5% fee

The total earnings for 24 hour period (confirmed + unconfirmed):
– 0.5229 PTS

The value of the Protoshares mined for 24 hours is as follows:
– 0.00799201 BTC
– 0.29450000 LTC
– ~$6.46 USD

So while there is not much point in mining Protoshares (PTS) with CPU anymore, there is a good point in mining for Protoshares instead of directly mining for Litecoin as this will give you slightly higher profitability if you exchange the mined PTS for LTC. Judging from our results you cans ay that at the moment GPU mining Protoshares you can earn about 34% more than mining with the same graphics hardware for Litecoins. So if you are interested in PTS mining, we do recommend you to give it a try at the 1GH PTS pool with a single GPU to see if you are going to be happy with the result you will get.
