Unfortunately the constant spam is filling up the node databases, therefore we are urged to stop spamming for now.
According to the IOTA Foundation the spamnet will receive an upgrade. Use -offline to spam in offline mode (without rewards). Download
Visit our GitHub Repository and Just follow the README.md
installation guide. → GitHub Repository
You don't have to exclusively use the spammer for the IOTA Spam Fund. Instead you can create customized spam (with your own spam address, tag and transaction message) by running the jar file with the option '-offline'.
Testnet & Spamnet Spamming
Spam on the testnet which already has the new tip selection algorithm by using the '-testnet' or '-spamnet' option when starting the jar file (no rewards for testnet spam, but for spamnet spam).
Asynchronous Spam Processing
No delays while waiting for node responses. Thanks to our tip pool feature, your spammer can do PoW all the time, resulting in a performance boost of 20-30%.
Although the spammer is written in Java, you can use our GO PoW modules featuring platform optimized machine code PoW, significantly raising your spam performance by up to 100%!
PoW Core Configuration
You can set your prefered configuration regarding how many cores you want to use for doing the PoW. This way you can specify exactly how much resources of your spamming device you want to spend.
Node List Options & Node Rotation
Use your own node list or connect to load balancers such as
Carriota Field or our third party node list (updated every 15 minutes), featuring over 400 public nodes. Also, your spammer will rotate through your nodes after each request for optimal load distribution.
Our spammer was built for terminal use, so you can let it run on your VPS (next to your node if you have one) to make the absolute most out of the computational resources you paid for.
Wikipedia Data Upload
While you are spamming, you can upload randomized Wikipedia article excerpts to the tangle by attaching them to the transaction message, a nice little feature helping to decentralize the knowledge of our time.
We are planning to integrate Chinese and German translations, since those make up a big percentage of our spammers. Let us know if you have other language requests or want to help with a translation.
