Unitus 即将到来的hardfork(分叉)-2017-6-3

官方原文:https://www.reddit.com/r/Unitus/ ... _upcoming_hardfork/
About the upcoming hardfork

With the release of Unitus 0.9.7.0, we have a hardfork in the network occurring on 3rd June @ 12:00am UTC. But what does this actually mean?
From this time, one of our existing algorithms (Qubit) will no longer be accepted by the network for new blocks. Instead a replacement algorithm (Argon2d) will work in it's place.
To support this change, all mining pools and solo miners must update to the latest release before the fork-time. If a majority of the miners remain on the old client, the hardfork will fail and Qubit will still function.
All other users of Unitus should also update, to ensure that when the hardfork does occur they are still able to sync their wallets send / receive Unitus.
Why are we doing this? When Unitus was first developed, Qubit was strictly a GPU algorithm, and even modest hashrates could be attained with a modern fast CPU. However since the advent of X11 ASIC's, many of these are able to mine Qubit as well (both Qubit and X11 are chained algorithms, and share many of the same hashing algortihms). Thus it has changed into an ASIC dominated algorithm, which has been shown to encourage centralisation.
Argon2d on the other hand, is strictly a CPU-only algorithm, much the same as Yescrypt. However, Yescrypt as it is currently implemented in Unitus (along with Myriad and Globalboost-Y) could potentially be mined by GPU's due to the low memory utilisation parameters in use. With Argon2d, I have purposefully set the memory usage to be higher, in an attempt to always keep this as a CPU only algorithm. This is inline with the Argon2 designer's recommendations.
We believe CPU-mining encourages decentralisation, enabling almost anyone with a basic computer to be able to mine and help secure the network. This was Satoshi's hope when Bitcoin was first brought to life, and we have all seen what happens when centralisation of mining power occurs.
What to expect short-term
Before the end of May, I will be releasing compiled windows executables and source code for a cpuminer that is capable of mining Argon2d as per the parameters used within Unitus. Along with this, I will be making public a mining pool that you will be able to mine Unitus using Argon2d. As there currently exist no other coins using the same Argon2d parameters, merge-mining Unitus with another coin whilst using Argon2d will not be possible (the other algorithms will remain merge-mined of course). Should another coin fork or be created using the same parameters, this will then open the door to merge mining using Argon2d.
You can monitor the progress as nodes update by checking out the network status page @ http://unitus.online/network
Please post any questions you may have here and I will attempt to answer them when I can.
Thanks




下面是机翻:
随着Unitus 0.9.7.0的发布,我们已经发生的6月3日@上午12:00 UTC在网络中hardfork。但是,这实际上意味着什么呢?
从这时起,我们现有的算法(量子比特)一个将不再通过网络进行新块接受。取而代之的是替换算法(Argon2d)将在它的工作的地方。
为了支持这一变化,所有采矿池和独奏矿工必须更新到叉时间之前的最新版本。如果大多数矿工保持旧的客户端上,在hardfork将失败,量子位将仍然起作用。
Unitus的所有其他用户也应该更新,以确保当hardfork确实发生,他们依然能够同步自己的钱包发送/接收Unitus。
我们为什么要这样做呢?当Unitus首先被开发,量子位严格意义上的GPU算法,甚至适度hashrates可以达到与现代快速的CPU。但是由于X11 ASIC的来临,许多是能矿量子位以及(包括量子比特和X11是链接的算法,并共享许多相同的散列algortihms的)。因此,已经改变到ASIC支配算法,其已被证明鼓励集中化。
Argon2d,另一方面,是严格意义上的纯CPU的算法,一样一样的Yescrypt。然而,Yescrypt因为它是在Unitus当前实施的(有无数的和Globalboost-Y一起)可潜在地由GPU的由于所使用的低存储器利用率参数开采。随着Argon2d,我有意地设置内存使用率较高,企图永远保持这样的CPU只有算法。这是内嵌在Argon2设计师的建议。
我们相信,CPU挖掘鼓励权力下放,使几乎有计算机基础的人能够挖掘和帮助保护网络。这是聪的希望比特币时,首先带来的生命,我们都看到,当挖掘集权时会发生什么。
什么期望短期
五月底之前,我会被释放编译Windows可执行文件和源代码的cpuminer是能够挖掘Argon2d按内Unitus使用的参数。伴随着这一点,我将作出公开采矿池,你将能够挖掘Unitus使用Argon2d。由于目前存在使用相同的参数Argon2d没有其它硬币,合并-挖掘Unitus与另一硬币同时使用Argon2d将是不可能的(其它算法将保持合并开采当然)。如果另一个硬币叉子或使用相同的参数创建,这会再开门合并使用Argon2d开采。
您可以监控进度通过检查网络状态页@作为节点更新http://unitus.online/network
请上传您可以在这里的任何问题,我会尝试时,我可以回答这些问题。
谢谢
