Talking with my wife, and she made a suggestion: Why not finish your time with DigiByte with more of a “celebration” of what you’ve done?

So, that’s what this is, a bit of a look at some of the main things I’ve been involved with, directly pushing forward or making…


I’ve been asked a lot lately about what’s been happening with a CPU / GPU mining algorithm that we’ve all been waiting for what seems like years to implement. This will cover some of the history there, as well as the development of DigiByte version 8. …


I’m thrilled to be able to show you a new design for DigiByte that will help thrust the digibyte project into the future, with a fresh new look, standing out among blockchain projects.

DigiByte (or rather the suggestion is now “digibyte”) is going to be cemented as a sound project…


At the start of the year it became clear that DigiByte needed to elevate it’s game and handle development better than had been in the past, with more accountability and transparency. This isn’t to say we believe the previous way was causing any problems, and DigiByte has done well for…


Thanks to Elon Musk for bringing the conversation to the forefront of peoples minds again. There have been many discussions about Bitcoin mining over the years, along with Proof of Work mining, and how Proof of Stake is supposedly “better for the environment”.

What we do find is that Bitcoin…


After a HUGE effort with the Unit Tests, Yoshi has taken a lot of the prior work from Marpme_ (Marvin from Vergecurrency) that he did for us and completed the Continuous Integration setup for DigiByte. …


We get asked this a lot in the Support / Mining channel, what is the “best” pool?

What I’m going to do today is teach you why it’s not a clever question, and what you should be asking, to get the most out of your mining!

You see there is…


I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to finally be able to let everyone know about this great next phase in the history of DigiByte, which sets us up to not only live up to our billion-dollar market capitalization, but future-proofs the foundations of the project for growth well…


One of the things that MultiAlgo affords DigiByte over single-algo is a greater distribution of the block rewards, predominantly due to the broader away of hardware permitted for mining, and finding that valid nonce.

This is not just about a better / broader scope of distributing it to individuals, but…


Today I want to talk a bit about the upcoming RandomX / ProgPoW implementations and gauge a bit of interest from people.

So first a little bit of background here:

DigiByte originally started off as Scrypt-only mining. In 2014, this was able to be mined on a GPU, and although…
