Calculate coin age of address?

#1

Is there an easy way to tell the current coin age of your wallet or an address? I just set up my proof of stake minting and am wondering how many coins I should expect to generate. I mean i could probably calculate it manually by looking at my transaction history, but it would be cool if there was a better way to do it.

#2

Do you need to keep your wallet minting to earn PoS, or is it strictly age of your coin regardless of the amount of minting activity?

#3

I believe it’s strictly based on coin age.

#4

So, question is open?

#5

Coin age acts as a multiplier for PoS hashing, as far as I can tell. That said, someone said opening the wallet for minting every three months is an effective way to generate stake coins.

#6

I think you should be getting mints after about 1-2 months of the coins being “still”(no transactions in or out from that address).

Here is an example

This is a late response to this post, but I’m in the process of trying to answer the same question, Gliss. I’ll publish my findings here as soon as I’ve been able to either get it working, or if I run into roadblocks that others may be able to assist with.

I have enjoyed bens investigations into POS mining and will be working with him. For now there is a basic POS calculator

Thanks for the service, but it’s a bit unclear as to what everything means, and how they are to be interpreted. A Help section would be fantastic. But take your time, we all know your busy. :wink:

Looks good to get people started. That’s why it is a BASIC POS calculator I guess :wink:

Many opportunities exist as creator(s) are probably aware off e.g.

  • allowing entering multiple coinages (e.g. 100 PPC 30 days, 200 PPC 60 days)
  • better description (what is the difference the two rows?)
  • and something I’m particularly keen on, the approximate chance of successfully minting a block given a certain coinage and a bunch of other parameters I’m still trying to find out

We will be patient…

I just happened to find this topic and the quoted post made me raise an eyebrow. Is it true that if your address receives new incoming transaction then your coin age will be reset? If so then isn’t it sort of the system’s vulnerability to Denial of Service attack? A malicious user would send dust payments to addresses with high coin age in order to reset them. No?

I don’t think that is correct or we won’t have different ages of different transactions in the same address.

Outputs count. :slight_smile:

It gives you each output coin age.
