Mining Setup

To mine Bitcoin Rhodium you need to set up an XRC wallet and configure your miner of choice. You can choose between Web wallet, Electrum-XRC or Magnum wallet. To set up a web wallet please visit wallet.bitcoinrh.org. Or download and install Electrum-XRC wallet (recommended) for Windows, Linux and MacOS.
Web wallet: wallet.bitcoinrh.org
Electrum-XRC wallet: electrum.bitcoinrh.org
Magnum wallet: https://magnumwallet.co

Sign up for XRC web wallet if not yet done so

  1. Create an account, with your username, password and secure question.
  2. Sign in and click “Create Wallet”.
  3. Set up a strong transaction password. Make sure you store it securely in a secure password manager of choice.
  4. Copy the seed somewhere safe. It’d be a good idea to write seed on a hardcopy and keep it safe.
  5. Paste it to confirm you got it right.
  6. Grab an address for the mining step. Your wallet is now ready to mine XRC.

Instructions for mining XRC on the official pool

Pool link: poolcore.bitcoinrh.org
  1. Any miner that supports X13 will be able to mine XRC. We have a few examples below of miners that are well tested with Bitcoin Rhodium network.
  2. For any miner, configure the miner to point to:
(0–0.8 GH/s) stratum+tcp://poolcore.bitcoinrh.org:3061
(0.8–2 GH/s) stratum+tcp://poolcore.bitcoinrh.org:3062
(3–4 GH/s) stratum+tcp://poolcore.bitcoinrh.org:3063
(5+ GH/s) stratum+tcp://poolcore.bitcoinrh.org:3064
with your XRC address as username and x as password. You don’t need to open an account on pool. You will be mining to XRC address and mined coins will be transferred to your wallet
after blocks reach 10 block maturity
after you mined up minimal amount of coins (currently 0.1 XRC)
sometimes mined blocks could get rejected by network (orphaned) after they were counted as valid blocks. This is normal network behavior to follow longest chain
  1. http://poolcore.bitcoinrh.org is used to follow your miner and network statistics.

CPU Miner-Multi

Source: https://github.com/tpruvot/cpuminer-multi
Sample configuration with CPU Miner tested on UBUNTU.
“url” : “stratum+tcp://poolcore.bitcoinrh.org:3061”, “user” : “YOUR XRC ADDRESS”,
“pass” : “x”,
“algo” : “x13”, “threads” : 1,
“cpu-priority” : 5,
“cpu-affinity” : 1, “benchmark” : false, “debug” : true, “protocol”: true, “show-diff”: true, “quiet” : false
Command to run your CPUMiner: cpuminer -c cpuminer.json


SGMiner is a GPU-based mine: https://github.com/nicehash/sgminereleases
The configuration below was tested on Windows:
cd C:\Software\sgminer-5.6.1-nicehash-51-windowsamd64 sgminer.exe
— gpu-platform 1 — algorithm x13mod -url stratum+tcp://poolcore.bitcoinrh. org:3062 — pool-user — userpass :x — auto-fan — temp-target 70 — temp-over- heat 82 — temp-cutoff 85 — gpu-fan 65–85 — log-file log.txt — no-adl — no-extra- nonce -P –T


CCMiner is a GPU-based miner (NVIDIA)
Command to run your CCMINER:
ccminer-x64.exe -a x13 -o stratum+tcp://poolcore.bitcoinrh.org:3062 -O :without -D — show-diff

Baikal miner

Settings: Url:
(0–2 GH/s) stratum+tcp://poolcore.bitcoinrh.org:3062
(3–4 GH/s) stratum+tcp://poolcore.bitcoinrh.org:3063
(5+ GH/s) stratum+tcp://poolcore.bitcoinrh.org:3064
Algo: x13User: your XRC receiving address (make sure you set 2 distinct addresses for each hashing board)
Pass: x
Extranonce: leave off Priority set to 0 and 1
Once pool stratum address and your wallet as user are set up you should see your miner mining against XRC pool. When miner is working the status column is green. The pool and miner are incorrectly configured now as status says “Dead” highlighted in red.

Instructions for mining XRC on BSOD pool

Pool link: bsod.pw/en/pool/dashboard/XRC/
Use this code for your miner: -a x13 -o stratum+tcp://pool.bsod.pw:2582 -u WALLET.rig
BSOD pool allows both solo and party mining.
For solo mining use code: -a x13 -o stratum+tcp://pool.bsod.pw:2582 -u WALLET.rig -p m=solo And for party mining use: -a x13 -o stratum+tcp://pool.bsod.pw:2582 -u WALLET.rig -p m=party.yourpassword
NOTICE: You can use us for North America and asia for Asia instead of euin your .bat file or config.
You can also use BSOD pool’s monitor app for Android and iOS.

Instructions for mining XRC on ZERGPOOL

Zergpool offers low fees (just 0.5%) and also SOLO and PARTY mining with no extra fees.
To mine XRC on Zergpool use this command lines for your miner:
Regular: -a x13 -o stratum+tcp://x13.mine.zergpool.com:3633 -u -p c=XRC,mc=XRC Solo: -a x13 -o stratum+tcp://x13.mine.zergpool.com:3633 -u -p c=XRC,mc=XRC,m=solo Party: -a x13 -o stratum+tcp://x13.mine.zergpool.com:3633 -u -p c=XRC,mc=XRC,m=party
Use your coin wallet address as username in mining software. Specify c=SYMBOL as password to identify payout wallet coin, and the same coin in mc=SYMBOL to specify mining coin.
For more information and support please visit http://zergpool.com
Notice that when there are more pools mining XRC in different geographic/availability locations choose the nearest to you as lowest priority and then add desirable fall back pool options in different geographic locations or pools. This is useful when one pool experiences issues, to fall back to different pool in Bitcoin Rhodium network.

New guy, want to share and sort out what I have found.

So I have come across Verge and I wanted to just share what I found to see if what I understand is correct.
I read the Black Paper and got an understand that Verge wants to fix the flaws that bitcoin faces and some concepts that bitcoin missed. Here is my understanding of how they do it. They want to have a single ledger that anyone can transact over, public or private. I have not seen how this will function and haven't tried it myself, yet, so the impression I am under is both show up but one in censored the addresses and the amounts. I saw stealth addressing in the black paper but was still confusing to me.
Stealth Addressing allows senders to create an unlimited number of one-time destination addresses on behalf of the recipient without any interaction between the parties. These addresses can only be recovered and spent by the recipient and cannot be publicly linked to either the sender or receiver addresses from which they were derived.
Is the address public or is it private? If it is private, how are the funds verifiable? Is it on a separate ledger?
To ensure privacy on how data is sent, everything transmitted on Verge is over TOR and i2P. While reading this article, this was written:
Hence, through the use of Tor, verge users can transact anonymously and can benefit from faster confirmation times.
I am unaware of how using TOR would benefit from faster confirmation times. Wouldn't more blocks mean more data? How does transferring it over TOR benefit verge?
I know it is not an official article so it may not be correct. Thought I would ask anyways.
This was also from the article.
Both Tor and i2P can be used when transacting using Verge’s Electrum clients.
I had saw some users comment on this sub that the official wallet doesn't have TOR built in yet. I didn't see anything that confirms or denies that until I looked at the the road map, it shows that Core Wallet 3.0 Stage 2 was suppose to be done in Q4 2017, and two days before New Years, I would say it will be missed. I saw that the roadmap is going to be updated quarterly so a new one should be soon. Do we know when, yet?
I know that the source code is open but I do not know how to read code. I did some nosing around to see what I could find. I went to this Verge Block Explorer and there were some things I learned while looking at it.
I found this Transaction, the fee was .1 Verge which was a $0.017 fee. It moved over $1,000,000 in assets. Looks like it can move large amounts of assets with a low fee. One thing is I saw the fee is 0.1 Verge. This is assuming that the price will increase exponentially, won't the price of the fee just keep raising? I know verge is in $0.10 range and this is cheap now, around a cent, but would be an issue if it went up. Right?
They claim 100 tps but I have not been able to find this anywhere else. An interesting thing I came across was that this block has more weight to it than this block. Perhaps I am just discovering this now about blockchain but the only difference between the two is that the difficulty in the first one is lower than the second one. Basing all transaction (simple one input to one output) off the block reward transaction, and comparing it to a block that has the block reward and a single transaction, each transaction is roughly 300 bytes. I am still looking for the block size limit to figure out the max transaction per second capacity. The time between the blocks is over or under 30 seconds from this transaction to this transaction. It was 47 seconds. The following block then ten seconds after that.
Another intertersting thing I found was that Block 1,756,553 and Block 1,756,554 happened at the EXACT same time. Not a second before or after each other, the same time. Double checking that it indeed happen by checking on another explorer. 1,756,553 1,756,554. I am wondering if this is due to the mulit-algorithmic system they have set up. My questions is then how do they prevent double spending? The idea is that everything is logged and then time-stamped to prevent the double spend, but if blocks can happen at the same time, couldn't, technically, someone double spend and get away with it?
After looking through the block explorer, over 200 blocks, I was able to see every transaction in the blocks. I wanted to do a sample selection, so perhaps I just did not see any privacy transaction during my time of browsing. Also, this is assuming that I know how verge works; the ledger is exactly the same but some transaction censoring their information. With this, I was looking for something like ###...### in place of where the address or amount should show. I did not see any of this and for promoting as a privacy coin, I thought I would see a lot of these. Again, that is assuming my understanding of Verge is right and that there is only one ledger and not a second secret one. If there is a second ledger, how do the two connect?
Wraith Protocol also seemed like an interesting thing and a vital component to the project. Looking at the Twitter Feed, I found this tweet. I had saw some comments about Wraith not being created yet but haven't seen any proof of that (Until the tweet, I wasn't sure what proof I was looking for specifically). Considering that this was suppose to be what makes Verge Verge, I have some more questions as to what is capable as of right now. If my understanding of Verge is correct. I should be able to see that a transaction was completed but the information is withheld, i.e. the addresses and amount. Like in this diagram provided to us by the team. Do we have an ETA or anything related to Wraith and its development?
After looking at the block explorer, I am under the impression that Verge wants to be the privacy coin, and will be after Wraith. Privacy, currently, is achieved by masking the data being sent over TOR and i2P. Again, this is assuming that I understand Verge correctly in that Verge is a single ledger with two types of transaction, Public and Private. You can see both transaction but one is censored and the other is shown just like a normal Bitcoin transaction.
I wanted to post here because I am interested in the project but still had some questions that I couldn't not find. I have only been looking into this project fore 3 days so I am still new to it and I know I do not follow the entire project clearly yet. Anything will help. Thank you!

Crash Course On Cryptocurrency Wallets

Today we have decided to have a small crash course for those who are new at the market of cryptocurrencies. And we’re going to start from the very basics.
The most important point that one has to understand, is that to keep cryptocurrency you have to have a wallet’s address and there are three ways how you can create one:
  1. Use online wallets
  2. Download a program to your PC
  3. Buy a hardware wallet
We will quickly go through pros and cons of each way. But let’s start by telling a few words about what a wallet for cryptocurrencies is using bitcoin as a sample.
- - -
Bitcoin, as any other cryptocurrency, is kept only in a form of a blockchain. Anybody can view a transaction in the net, check the balance of any wallet. This information is open for everyone. But it is impossible to tell who the owner of the wallet is.
Bitcoin wallet has two parts:
• Open key. It is the address of the bitcoin wallet, it is not a secret. It has 32-34 symbols of Latin letters and numbers. All addresses always start with the number “1” or “3”.
• Private key (sometimes called as a secret key). It is a longer sequence of letters and numbers of the Latin alphabet. You mustn’t tell it to anyone, because it is an access to the wallet.
Transaction in bitcoin network means that cryptocoins go from one wallet’s address to another. The speed of transaction is equal to emerging of a new block in blockchain (10 minutes on average).
Transaction is subject to a small fee. Depending on the network loading, its amount can change. The sender specifies its amount. By the way, commission does not depend on the amount of transaction. You can transfer amount equaling to $10, $10000 or $1 billion and still pay the same commission.
- - -
  1. Online wallets There are lots of sites which offer services for creation and keeping online-wallets. They are called “cryptowallets”. The service takes on all the issues of keeping funds safe. There are pros in that, since you don’t need to think about computer safety, plus reliability of the service is usually much better that that of a simple computer.
We would like to personally recommend the service blockchain.com
  1. Program on your PC You can download programs for bitcoin wallet on the official website bitcoin.org. Here you can choose from lots of wallets supported by community: Bitcoin Core, MultiBit, Armory and Electrum. Also, you can learn the features of each of them. They slightly differ from each other. For example, Electrum does not keep all the history of transactions (blockchain) on computer, but it refers to randomly selected network nodes. Bitcoin Core, on the opposite, keeps the full history on your PC and computer must always be online for checking if the data is accurate. Today the blockchain size for bitcoin is about 200 Gigabytes.
Many people recommend taking the security of a computer with bitcoin-wallet seriously. This is because in case fraudsters steal the wallet file, all your funds there will disappear. As nobody wants this to happen, you need to follow the basic rules of computer usage safety.
  1. Hardware wallets Hardware wallets are a device that keeps the private key. Their advantage is that it is switched off the Internet and there is no way anybody can hack this wallet.
If the device breaks or you lose access to it, you can restore it by entering 24 random words (so-called seed words).

We wish you reliable and profitable exchanges!

Anyone familiar with cryptography/bitcoin/bitwasp classes who can help with an issue?

edit: $100 btc reward for the resolution!
I have been following this guide: https://freedomnode.com/blog/58/generate-bitcoin-wallet-addresses-from-extended-public-key-with-php
to try and derive legacy bitcoin addresses from an xpub key from my electrum wallet which using the bitwasp classes as specified in the guide. With the latest repository changes, it seems to have broken this method of generation somehow and there are comments with the exact error i am getting on the guide article but no solutions anywhere. this is my error:
Fatal error: Uncaught InvalidArgumentException: Invalid fingerprint for BIP32 key, must be in range [0 - (231)-1] inclusive
after looking at where this error is thrown in: vendor\bitwasp\bitcoin\src\Key\Deterministic\HierarchicalKey.php (Line 82)
if ($parentFingerprint < 0 || $parentFingerprint > IntRange::U32_MAX) { throw new \InvalidArgumentException('Invalid fingerprint for BIP32 key, must be in range [0 - (2^31)-1] inclusive'); } 
$parentFingerprint is 0 when I echo it but i do not know how any of these classes work enough to debug it.
Can anyone follow this guide and see if they can replicate my issue please? I used the exact sample code provided for xpub keys.
Full stack trace:
Fatal error: Uncaught InvalidArgumentException: Invalid fingerprint for BIP32 key, must be in range [0 - (2^31)-1] inclusive in [path_redacted]\vendor\bitwasp\bitcoin\src\Key\Deterministic\HierarchicalKey.php:82 Stack trace: #0 [path_redacted]\vendor\bitwasp\bitcoin\src\Serializer\Key\HierarchicalKey\ExtendedKeySerializer.php(147): BitWasp\Bitcoin\Key\Deterministic\HierarchicalKey->__construct(Object(BitWasp\Bitcoin\Crypto\EcAdapter\Impl\PhpEcc\Adapter\EcAdapter), Object(BitWasp\Bitcoin\Key\KeyToScript\Factory\P2pkhScriptDataFactory), 0, 0, 0, Object(BitWasp\Buffertools\Buffer), Object(BitWasp\Bitcoin\Crypto\EcAdapter\Impl\PhpEcc\Key\PublicKey)) #1 [path_redacted]\vendor\bitwasp\bitcoin\src\Serializer\Key\HierarchicalKey\ExtendedKeySerializer.php(159): BitWasp\Bitcoin\Serializer\Key\HierarchicalKey\ExtendedKeySerializer->fromParser(Object(BitWasp\Bitcoin\Network\Networks\Bitcoin), Object(BitWasp\Bufferto in [path_redacted]\vendor\bitwasp\bitcoin\src\Key\Deterministic\HierarchicalKey.php on line 82 
Thank you for any knowledge that can be share for this!

displaying private keys in electrum from trezor

im trying to claim all of these random bitcoin hard forks that i held btc during...
so i transferred all my btc from my trezor and am trying to use the 24 word seed to find my private keys to claim my forked coins.
so when i follow these steps here: https://www.reddit.com/BitcoinAirdrops/comments/7u5r4f/guide_to_claim_your_forked_coins_from_trezo
my electrum wallet displays my bitoin addresses from my trezor, but only the addresses that are not a part of my passphrase addresses on trezor.. in other words when you are prompted to enter your passphrase on trezor directly after entering your trezor pin, if you just click enter without a passphrase, those are the addresses that i am seeing in electrum.
ive tried all i know how to try to get the addresses displayed that need a passphrase to show on my trezor, but i cannot get them.
this is a sample of the list that first shows that is my trezor list WITHOUT a passphrase.
THESE are the addresses that i need to have displayed, the ones that are displayed on my trezor WITH a passphrase
how do i find my private keys for my addresses that are part of a passphrase i am using on trezor?
also tried https://iancoleman.io/bip39/ which i like better, seems easier to see everything. this also displays the exact addresses electrum was, the ones i included above, the ones WITHOUT a passphrase needed to see.

How to sweep private keys - Using the Electrum Bitcoin wallet Hack bitcoin (private script) 2019 How To Send Bitcoins Using Electrum Why Your Bitcoin Wallet Address Changes Every Time? How to get a Bitcoin Wallet Address - FREE & in under a minute

Now you need to pay someone with an address 1Pay 0.7 BTC. Electrum would handle this by creating a transaction with inputs from addresses 1Abc and 1Xyz (which sum up to 1.0 BTC) and the outputs would be 0.7 BTC to the address 1Pay and 0.3 BTC to the address 1ChA, which is one of your change addresses. Each change address is used only once. A Bitcoin address, or simply address, is an identifier of 26-35 alphanumeric characters, beginning with the number 1, 3 or bc1 that represents a possible destination for a bitcoin payment. Addresses can be generated at no cost by any user of Bitcoin. For example, using Bitcoin Core, one can click "New Address" and be assigned an address.It is also possible to get a Bitcoin address using an One-Time Address is a self-hosted, open-source service which turns your Bitcoin wallets into webpages and embeddable widgets that instantly provide an address with a QR code whenever someone wants to send you Bitcoin. One-Time Address never shows the same address twice and thus helps to prevent address reuse. The destination address chosen is dependent on the address format utilized by the infected users’ Electrum wallet. Pay-to-PubkeyHash (P2PKH) addresses are the default in use during setup and likely the most common address type in use by the casual Bitcoin user. This fact is evident when looking up the activity of each address. NOTE: This is a sample private key (address) only. Do NOT send your bitcoin to this address. Do NOT send your bitcoin to this address. When receiving bitcoins, on the other hand, you need a public key (address) , which always begins with the number 1.
