This site was created to collectively solve bit 66 of the Bitcoin puzzle challenge.
Create an account and you will get access to the user and stats page. From there you can
download the client software.
It works with bitcrack and the server to hand out work and keep track of what has been checked.
Each range work load is 0000000000 - FFFFFFFFFF or 1,099,511,627,776 keys. I selected this range
because it does not complete to quickly on top hardware and is still easily completed in less
then an hour with slower GPUs.
20000000000000000 - 3FFFFFF0000000000 is generated by the server randomly.
The server randomly generates a btc address that falls within a requested range to be used
as proof of work for the range work loads. When the client software finishes a range and
submits this proof the DB marks that range as checked and dispenses another. Before being
dispensed the range is checked against the DB to ensure it hasn't already been checked or issued.
There are 33,554,432 total ranges in the DB.
All work completed is kept track of for each user and displayed on your user stats page.
If/when we find the solution the bitcoin stored in 13zb1hQbWVsc2S7ZTZnP2G4undNNpdh5so will
be split between the contributing users equally according to work completed just like a bitcoin
mining pool would for a mined block. This percentage is displayed on your stats page.
