Max size of nonce

Is there a max size for the nonce? I have never gone over 9 digits, can I do 10 digits e.g. 1000000000?
More generally, who developed the POC concept. Isn't there a tech document that defines thing like nonce size, what a scoop is etc?


@rds I've done 10 digits  I believe it's either 2 ^ 32 1 or 2 ^ 64 1


@Blago I believe he's talking about actual nonce number: starting nonce + number of nonces.

@haitch, haha, well 10 digit number is certainly within the envelope of 2^321.
Thanks, I have a new drive I labeled #10 and I want to start the files at 1,000,000,000. Thanks

Nonce size is 262,144 bytes  no more, no less.

@sevencardz rds, yes a nonce is always 262,1444 bytes  however what rds was asking is what is the maximum nonce number you can use? ie  what is largest valid starting nonce + number of nonces ?

To answer your questions about the request for a technical specification please see: http://www.burstteam.us/index.php/about/ scroll about 1/2 way down, there is a real nice flow chart for plotting and mining that defines all sizes and arithmetic operations used when calculating Burst.

@rds The wallet can handle a nonce address/index range from:
0 to 18446744073709551613
(unsigned Long.MAX_VALUE > 2^641)Check this for scoop size etc. PLOT_SIZE is the size behind one nonce address/index.
