Of course, sure! You really helped all us! Smiley

If someone wants to make a donation - look at jgarzik's signature! Wink

Due to the fact that puddinpop opened his source code
and there was not any donations, topic may be closed.
If you still want to donate, so you may do it for jgarzik.

What license would be preferred for an open source CUDA implementation?

The same license as the rest of bitcoin.

Introducing new licenses into the mix just brings additional headaches.

Just hijacking the thread a little bit to say I've posted a new patch to enable CUDA on the default client: https://bitcointalksearch.org/topic/m.13028

Still very specialized, but wide open for you to change that Wink

So, how much interest is there in this? I *could* put a little effort in making something a bit more generic than my osx version, and I don't even need a bounty or donation. It's a simple math problem, as the coins I'd need to ask to make this monetarily worthwhile are simply not going to be offered, so I'd rather do this for the community's sake.  Donations are appreciated, but judging by how much I got from the implementation I posted (a hefty sum of 0), I don't think that is going to tilt my balance anytime soon Smiley

On the other hand, are there any takers? I'd offer my support and my code to whomever wants to make this happen in a short period of time.

If I could figure out how to get it to compile under Ubuntu 10.04 I would throw some BTC your way.  Grin

Maybe someone else would program it for less.

Oh and since it is OpenCL would that mean a ATI support would also be near?

"It is OpenCL"? I'm guessing the bounty starter meant either cuda or opencl, but although I only have nvidia (and cuda is so much less verbose) I think an opencl version would be more appropriate.

Why does he want bitcoins donated if his code can generate them?

Presumably he's not going to get 10,000 BTC very rapidly, by shaving off 5 BTC from each gen.

Why does he want bitcoins donated if his code can generate them? Is this a similar scam as we saw earlier with a GPU client?

Not that I care that much, I don't have a CUDA gpu.

This is really backwards. Most open source developers release their code then take donations. He can keep his ransomware. I'll take my business elsewhere when competition becomes available.

If it was something that wasn't going to get done otherwise a bounty beforehand to show people's desire would be good.

This is going to get done though for sure and I bet the majority of donations will be paid afterwards.

Collecting donations for the opening puddinpop's build source code.
If he will not open source code so all donated bitcoins will be given
to someone who will create opensource multiplatform Bitcoin client.
It should have good CUDA/OpenCL support and also high mhash/s.
If there would be a 10000 BTC bounty I would open source it right now.
Address for your donations: 1B7qVBeKZoi1g6nCbMiFT5JkfNB2SKGinc
And please report here about your donations for justified statistics.
