comment Would it matter if my miner was hashing random vs incremental values?
@MaartenBodewes No prizes (yet...), but I have debated each user having a highest and lowest score because I think a score of 1024 would be just as impressive (and as difficult) as a score of 0.

Oh yeah, isn't that called the birthday paradox? That may not be the name, but I remember that property. I'll switch back to my incremental version of the miner.

comment Is there a system where I can securely store a secret value and compare a semi-ambiguous input to it?
It's just a concept I'd like to see to completion. I doubt it'll be the norm but maybe it'll be appealing to those looking for an extra layer of security Regardless if anybody likes it, the APIs don't exist for me to make this 100% real.

comment Tactics available to help prove security of a new system?
I understand what your saying and I know I have a huge amount of work ahead of me, but I really feel like I'm on to something. I asked this question because even though I've gone through years of research, I accept the fact that I don't know everything and that I have a lot to learn from my peers in the field, not to mention we're in beta and if I don't ask it, somebody eventually will. I've worked for years researching, testing, breaking, re-breaking, and expanding on the cipher I do have. I'm going to fail a lot before I succeed, but I only need to succeed once.

comment Tactics available to help prove security of a new system?
We've (my buddy and I) been looking into security the entire time, from day one. We've looked into many different attacks and have been researching implementation details in this field for almost 7 years. I ask this question because we have some very new techniques that need to be thoroughly tested and vetted before publication. I tried searching for common security tests but most scholarly sources tell you "it's secure when the community can't break it." I am looking for any/every way to prove this process.
