Can you use that big spotlight you have to shine a giant bitcoin symbol?

Actually I been thinking about spotlighting my sack.  Nothing like a big ass Teabag in the sky. 

Since I'm sure there are no Gotham residents here, for a small fee I will take a pic of my wall showing a teabag of a flashlight

Hey, it seems like getting out of the newbie box is going to take awhile.

I'm working on some BitCoin related websites that'll launch as soon as I acquire some more coin and find an area to promote it.

Not secret!

I've ran a 'Free Second Life Linden' site since 2007, and I'm basically going to open one up for BitCoins soon. Where users do things like watch youtube videos/ads, facebook LIKE pages, complete offers, register to sites, etc. and earn BitCoin. In addition to BitCoins users could also withdraw the earned rewards to Second Life, or redeem for amazon gift cards, etc. The site is done, minimum withdrawal is 0.01 BitCoins. I just need to buy/trade for more. Ive traded $L for some, but need more to be on the safe side. On average I'd assume most users would only be able to earn like 0.25 BTC, more only if they put in a lot of effort in 'Tasks'.

Other sites I was thinking about were an online casino where users could compete in skill based games to see who gets the highest amount of points. I'd also like to try my hand at a marketplace.

Those are probably the best three ideas I have. The codes all done from previous projects. Ive had lots of random virtual currency websites over the past few years, so its basically just reworking them for BitCoins and seeing if theres any interest.

Hi all,

I've been mining for a couple of weeks, so thought I ought to get round to posting.

In the interests of making the bitcoin economy actually work, I've also started accepting bitcoins as payment for adverts on my 150,000+ pageview/day Scrabble Cheat-O-Matic: http://spod.cx/cheat-o-matic.shtml (http://spod.cx/cheat-o-matic.shtml)

It's not much, I know, but I figure every little helps :)

And as it happens, yes, I do like cheese.

Hey all, also new to Bitcoin here...  At the time of this post, I'm mining at a rate of about 3.3 GHash.

I've been big into automated wealth generation since about 2006 when I started botting in World of Warcraft.  For a while I botted up to 24 accounts simultaneously in World of Warcraft, either leveling character or farming gold, right up until Blizzard laid a perma ban on mmoglider (formerly wowglider) in court.  It was a profitable hobby, but in all, very time consuming.

Unfortunately I only found out about Bitcoin on 6/3/11 but starting mining the very next day.  Wish I had found out when CPU mining was viable, since I still have 12 computers from the WoW days.  Instead I had to build some new rigs with 5850s (3x) and some 5830s (8x).

Currently been mining for 7 days at 1.1 GHash (with a jump to 3.3 GHash in the last 3 of the 7 days).  Taken in a little over 20 coins.

That's pretty much me in a nutshell...

Hi,

Been aware of bitcoin for about a year now, but only recently taken it seriously.

Made a few trades recently and wiped out nearly half my first $500 deposit into MtGox with the madness over the past couple days.

Logged in today to find my entire account wiped out, similar to this

http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=13322.0

I have a support ticket in for this issue, but just a warning to newbies.  Probably not a good idea to keep too much in the exchange.  Hopefully it will be resolved.

Post by: ansible adams on June 13, 2011, 12:00:41 AM
I heard about Bitcoin last summer, thought it looked interesting, and mined some coins. As the proof-of-work difficulty increased and people started applying fancier hardware I couldn't economically mine anymore, so I went into hibernation. The recent Silk Road hype brought bitcoin back to my attention. I am personally hoping for a hundred Silk Roads to bloom, not necessarily drug focused but just supplying things off the books. I have a bunch of fireworks and related supplies I'd love to offer, for example, if I wasn't afraid that I'd be facing a federal agent or a lawsuit the instant one of my customers does something careless with his purchase. But if there's a properly veiled way to do business I'm responsible for just one thing: maintaining my reputation as a businessman who supplies what I offer.

Post by: Thanak on June 13, 2011, 02:21:06 AM
Hi,

I'm Thanak. I just learned about bitcoin a few days ago and been lurking in the forum since. I find the idea of a decentralised world wide currency facinating.

I'm not really tech swavy but I've manage to install the client and a mining software. I joined a mining pool and manage to get 0.02 BTC in 3 days :-\   I guess every fortune have to start somewhere  ;D

Actually buying the coins is not very user friendly so that leaves me with having to actually work to get my hand on those precious BTC. I figure offering a service is also the best way to help the projet.

I'm a decent Go/Weichi/Baduk player,  I play at the 1 kyu level on the KGS server.

I usually help out people for free, but since I need to make a bitcoin living, I can provide lessons for anyone from 30-6 kyu. I can teach in french or english

For a one hour class (30-40 min teaching game + the rest for review/question) I will charge 0.2 BTC  (Mostly available weekdays 22h00-24h00  Canada/US eastern time)
If you want, I can also simply review a game you played. Send me a .sgf and I will send you a fully commented .sgf back for 0.1 BTC
Other arrangement possible, price subjet to change.

I've made an addresse for this Baduk4Bitcoin@gmail.com and I will monitor it daily. Just send me a mail if you want to schedule a lesson.

Hello. I discovered Bitcoins a few days ago when I found out that my HD 5870 was worth 33% more than what I paid for it new over five months ago. Instead of selling it and upgrading, I decided to put it to work and give Bitcoins a shot. So here I am.

Post by: mouse on June 13, 2011, 04:03:07 AM
Ive been reading about bitcoins ever since I heard about them (when they were at about $3US each), though I didnt register to a bit later, and hardly posted, which has got me stuck in the noob play pen.

Related topic: if youve been registered for a while, but have low posts, you should be allowed out of the play pen, since if you were *actually* a troll, you would have been by now. My 2c.

Hi, I'm new to this forum although I have been reading it for quite a while.

Were 'newbies' just recently restricted to this part of the forum? I was under the impression that I had posted some replies in other parts.

Anyhow, I am very enthusiastic about bitcoins and their potential to even the playing field. I am working on projects that I hope to share in the future. I look forward to contributing to the success of bitcoins however I can. :)

How many posts does one need to no longer be considered a newbie?

Post by: lungfish on June 13, 2011, 05:08:19 AM
Hello Bitcoin faithful,

I have been arguing in favor of Bitcoin for a while now in certain online communities. I have also profited a good deal on Bitcoin, both in taking having a long-term view of its success, and taking advantage of its price volatility (and thereby helping to stabilize the currency).

I have also sent a detailed email to Ron Paul requesting that he give a statement on Bitcoin.

As an experiment, I am now loaning BTC to those who desire to short bitcoin; I encourage haters to put their money where their mouth is.

Title: Initial intro - just got the components for my first rig (more later)
Post by: 88bitcoins on June 13, 2011, 05:47:21 AM
Hi - I'm "88bitcoins". About to clear a space to set up my new rig. Excited and my motherboard is very sharp looking.

Was mining bitcoins on my Macbook (A1278) laptop (cpu) just for fun back when they were 25 cents, then blew it all on a silly bet.

Back then I just got a kick out of counting the number of "Yays" I got a day.

Coulda-woulda-shoulda, but life got in the way and it's still better late than never.

Not phased by either the volatility, the haters, or the fact that I waited so long to take real action.

Just quickly, my new rig includes Asrock M3A770DE motherboard with two Sapphire 5830 graphics cards and a Rosewill power supply. It's modest and pretty much all I could afford at the moment. Thought I'd be able to re-appropriate more components or at least a case from one of the older towers I have lying around, but no such luck. Oh well.

Gotta go to put it together now. Unfortunately clearing a space for it while my place is in a state of chaotic renovation is going to take as long or longer than getting the rig up and running.

later...

Hello everybody!

I discovered Bitcoin just a few days ago, but since there's something wrong with my Catalyst Driver, I can't update it to support OpenGL...
So here I am now, thinking of 'selling' some services instead of mining.

Languages that I speak: Dutch (mother language) and English

Hi everybody,

I've discoverd Bitcoins thanks to a report in a local TV. The idea of a cryptography-based currency is brilliant! I haven been into mining just for a few days, but I'm getting more and more dedicated, running two rigs currently. Also, being a developer and an entrepreneur I'm exploring ways to provide services to the Bitcoin community and market. My business is Czech Republic-based.

I just started getting into bitcoin. Wish I had done so when I first read about it last year. Still... I'm still excited to be getting in early on what could be a game-changing idea.

This whole bitcoin journey has been highly educational. I'm delving into IRC, gpg, ubuntu, for the first time and having a blast!

I'm gwillen. I bought most of my bitcoin at US$1, which I'm pretty happy about. :-) I briefly looked into trading bitcoin for profit, and you can find the results of that attempt in my bitcoin-otc web of trust entry, but I ultimately decided that the effort combined with the legal risk was too much for the amount of profit involved.

Note that this account was previously held by a scammer who was trying to trade on my bitcoin-otc reputation. I believe his account has been renamed to fake_gwillen.

Hi.  I discovered Bitcoins last month through Rick Falkvinge's blog and twice since have attended the NYC Bitcoin Meetup, hosted by Bruce Wagner.  I have devoted much of my life to exploring the ideas of free money, after reading F. A. Hayek's book "Denationalisation of Money" (1976), while attending grad school at Stanford in a department then known as Engineering-Economic Systems (EES), now as Management Science & Engineering (MS&E).  I thought it'd be another ten years or so before a free money took off.  Its time may be now.

Hey!  I'm a PHP Developer, just learned of BitCoin a couple days ago and am entirely hooked on the concept.  I have measly CPU/GPU resources available, but even so, I was able to accumulate 0.04 BTC within the first 24 hours of mining.  That's enough to have me thinking non-stop about all the possibilities, and running calculations on hardware costs / electricity costs / etc, and wishing I had capital to invest.

Post by: BetweentheFabric on June 13, 2011, 10:00:41 PM
Hey there bitminers and bittraders!

I started mining just over a week ago and have built up just shy of 10 BTC so far. I now cannot bring myself to play games as this will delay my mining and minimise profits. So now all I do is watch the coins roll in, whilst learning C#, and pondering about the future of bitcoin.

At the current rate of BTC to GBP this seems to pay my monthly rent and electricity. This is something I still cannot quite wrap my head around.
Something I also noticed is that it seems to be the strongest currency in the world at the moment..

Anyway, someone stated that the US federal reserve does not like bitcoin. At first I thought this was obvious but on second thoughts, there is nothing stopping 'them' from profiting huge amounts too.
So at the risk of seeming naive; What is to stop 'them' or some other huge corporation dedicating a huge supercomputer-like-cluster to mining and suddenly having lets say 70% of the total hashing power, and doing what people accuse deepbit of having the possibility of doing (whatever that is, though I suspect its just jealousy)

/noobthoughts


Title: Re: Introduce yourself :)
Post by: md2k7 on June 13, 2011, 10:12:51 PM
BetweentheFabric: If someone controls over 50 % of the computing power, they can (re-)write new blocks of history as they choose. Besides deciding what will and what won't make it into the blockchain (thus arbitrarily accepting or rejecting transactions), they could also double-spend their bitcoins.

The kind of risky investment bitcoins are at the moment, however, I guess most rich people have many more profitable options than paying a lot for rapidly outdating hardware to make a few bitcoin users angry.

Yours
David

Possible Questions to expect:

Are BitCoins Legal?

Is it legal to purchase a cryptographic piece of 'real estate' in the block chain secured by mathematical formulas - otherwise known as BitCoin?

  --if yes, what is the difference between BitCoin and others like WoW, Linden, or even monopoly money?
  --if no, then any advice on setting up official business' within the U.S. (lets stop sending innovation overseas)

and etc....

Best Regards,

The Bear

I'm new to Bitcoin but experienced in online marketing and especially SEO. I own a large number of websites, of which most are operated as affiliate websites. I have been reading almost non-stop about Bitcoins over the last week and find it incredibly fascinating. I am even considering investing in a multi-Gh rig and start mining, but I want to see what the latest difficulty level is going to bring before deciding...

Hello all!

Like many, I heard of the mysterious underworld of bitcoin through press articles about the now infamous silk road (which I sadly have been unable to access, if only to see the spectacle in all it's....glory?). I wish to trade bitcoin, and to perform some sort of service for which I can receive bitcoin as compensation.  This will require some thought.  Nice to meet you all though, very excited!

Hi all. I go by darkskypoet or dsp for short... I've been mining for just a few days now with about 600MHashes/s, looking to move to ~ 1GHash/s in a couple days.

I think this is a neat and seemingly profitable socioeconomic experiment and hope that it continues to go well.

Currently I mine from the Beautiful British Columbia with fairly cheap Hydro Electric power (for the most part).

Oh and a side note, if you're looking at getting more mining hardware... 6990s are not a very cost effective way of doing so... Consider that 2 6970's for around $750 CDN will get you more MHashs/hr... for a lot cheaper.

Good luck and Good Mining.

A few google searches later, I happened on these pages and the very valuable information contained herein. Thanks to you guys I've set up my single 6970 to smoke hash and push out a single shiny Bitcoin roughly every 40 hours!

I'm really just following the craze, though I'm honestly curious to see where all of this ultimately ends up.

Hi I'm optimalbitcoinminingcorp :) you might recognize me as dubious on IRC around the bitcoin channels.

I'm starting a new bitcoin mining business, and the largest IPO on GLBSE.com so far.  You will soon be able to purchase 0.8 btc bonds that mature at 1 btc on or before December 1, 2011.

You can buy the bonds by creating a new web account for the web client for GLBSE.com here: http://dev.glbse.com:4567/client/index.html

Then generate a key pair and register, deposit some bitcoins and you are ready to go.

Currently I am running 15 gpus at around 4 Ghash/s, so I've invested about $5.5k of personal funds and I am looking for bonds as loans to expand my cluster to around 40 Ghash/s.   I would like to raise $45k for expansion funds within the next month.  10% of net profits from my business will be going towards different charities and donations, to the bitcoin community and other highly regarded charitable organizations.  I believe bitcoin is a great idea and has great potential in the future so long as people continue to contribute to the bitcoin community in positive ways.  I have been doing a lot of thinking and planning for this business and I am finally ready to expand.  Expect more details regarding this opportunity to follow.

If you have any questions you can post them on my new thread or email me at optimalbitcoinmining@gmail.com.

Thank you for taking the time to read this!

I understand that you administrators want to protect your 50K+ BTC pots, but restricting newcomers from expressing themselves on the main threads is a weird approach. There are 10x to 1000x more of us than there are of you, and we are the ones paying for your profits. Why are you doing this? I have been visiting this board for well over a month and I still only have 2 hours on my log. A new board is in order I think. Suggestions?

Hello, I am Spartacus. I'm working on an Android client. It's part-native ARM compiled, part Java. Full blockchain and peering. I want a UI that non-technical users can be comfortable with using and trusting. Minimal *physical* and *mental* transaction cost is important.

In my opinion, Mt Gox has been great to get Bitcoin where it is today but I fear it can become a risky single point of failure. I'd like see more localized and physically distributed transactions for money changing. Resilient economies for resilient communities. Which is why I feel like a mobile client is so important.

I'd be glad to talk about features and such with prospective users, also probably have technical questions on the way, but mostly I'll just be hacking away silently.

Post by: Hundsstern on June 14, 2011, 10:01:07 PM
Hi,

my name is Hundsstern.

I love Bitcoins.

I`ve discovered Bitcoins two weeks ago through the news. Too bad it wasn't earlier. But at least I catched the BC-Train before it got too far away.

I've started mining with my Intel E8500 and a GTX260 but soon I realized that this is nonsense.
So i bought myself a Radeon EAH5870 at Amazon shipped via UPS.

At first I got 300 mhash/s with guiminer at eligius. I was not content with eligius and so i switched to deepbit.
I've improved my hashrate from 300 mh/s to 360 mh/s when i've started using poclbm . And i got another 40 mh/s when i've added "-v -w 128".

Because of the constantly recurring problems on deepbit i've tried bitcoin.lc but they still don't update their statistics. But they are able to update their thread-title in the forum when they reach a bigger Pool-Hashrate.

I'm back at deepbit now and i'm content for the moment.

I'm concerned about the next difficulty increase and if i have enough money to buy new equipment for mining at an acceptable level.

I've planned to post in the german forum mainly and i hate all the trolls for being the reason why i'm posting here.

Salutations,
I am an Australian resident who lives on-site at a dedicated facility at a local private hospital where I am treated for an especially malicious and ultimately fatal form of bowel cancer. In the mean-time, I enjoy pursuing manageable but rewarding goals such as my current Bitcoin endeavor of reaching 60US dollars using nothing but BTC.
So far, mining with a single 5770 intermittently over the last 48 hours has netted me the peasant sum of 0.06 BTC, but when I turn this into 1.0BTC I plan to pursue investments (of some sort, I'm still very much clueless) that will allow me to make progress on my path to 60 US dollars.
If any other newbies have success stories with their first BTC endeavors, please feel free the share.

I actually don't have a single fraction of a bitcoin right now, so if anyone wants to send some to me, even a tiny fraction ;) that would be sweet, just so I can try it out see if my system is working ok or not. The address to send is:

Hello, my name is EpicFail. I have been mining Bitcoins for 2 months at approximately 1 Ghash/s. I had another forum login but I stopped using that one because in my prior posts I might have given up too much information about where I might be working. For various reasons, I think that it is not prudent for my employer to know that I am involved in Bitcoins. So here I am re-incarnated as a noob - going to be a little bit more careful about what I might say.

Hey all.  A couple of quick namecoin questions:

If I want to set up, say, a dozen dot-bit domain names, and no more than that (and want to be my own registrar), what is an approximate reasonable or necessary number of namecoins to acquire to do this?

At the moment I have about one-and-a-half bitcoins in Mt. Gox.  I want to buy namecoins to set up a few .bit domain names. I'm looking for some namecoin sellers, to compare their prices.  I found #bitcoin-otc pretty opaque & not ready for primetime.  

Also,

"* Names expire after 12000 blocks unless renewed with an update"

What does "12000 blocks" translate to in terms years, months, weeks, days, hours

Title: SecuCoin Distro. Please Post in a forum mentioned below, Mods. Thanks!
Post by: beyondnotion on June 15, 2011, 01:43:04 AM
I had an idea for this concept a couple of months ago when I was thinking about running my own Bitcoin ATM drive through bank.

Run a computer with some kind of secure linux distro. Tiny core would be a good base to work from since its one of the most lightweight distros.(Only 10 MB or so!)

Run the standard stable bitcoin server with every port blocked except the ports need by the bitcoin server.

Tiny core runs completely in memory so if some one were to try and compromise the machine and it lost power then everything would be permanently erased. No trace. In order for your wallet to be recoverable, enable a script that periodically encrypts your wallet and sends it a remote databank, like google docs, drop box, ect.

Install SSH but use key based authentication with a password needed to unlock your private key. This would allow you access to your machine from any terminal on your local network.

Connect the headless server to your Ethernet, never use a wifi network!

Also connect the pc to a back up power supply and surge protector.

Hope this helps!

PS: I'm thinking about making a linux distro based off of this called SecuCoin.

Originally I came up with this handle to separate my bitcoin identity from other net identities but it took on a life of its own, and now I'm trying to work out a beer delivery service in major Canadian cities where payment is solely made in bitcoins. Thanks a lot, bitcoins, now I have no free time again, lol.

I've been lurking the scene for a while, now I discovered that I've been newbiefied and I guess this is my ticket outta here.

Hey. I'm Wizard-Ninja (Obviously).  Is the post requirement still 50? Kinda a long time to be stuck in the newbie section :\
Been lurking on here for a couple days. This forum has been pretty much indispensable in helping get set up.
Well, that's all for now. Hopefully I'll find enough junk to blabber about to not be stuck here for too long.

Hello everyone,

New miner, going on 3 days now.
Have 3 x 5870s doing 1100-1400 Mhash/s day.

I'm a member of a very large/popular tech site where we're not even allowed to mention bitcoins.

What's the best way to cash out that doesn't involve a bank?

Thanks

Howdy, folks. I'm a newbie miner still wrapping my head around how BitCoin works.

If that sounds a bit odd, it's because I didn't build my miner - I traded it with Jaime Frontero (perhaps you know him) for some other work. I'm part of slush's pool, and at Mr. Frontero's behest, I've decided to join the forums due to my consistent complaining about one thing which he, as a self-professed geek, doesn't care about as much as I do: the UI.

I am told this is something that is being worked on, but the UI is a major impediment to average users becoming involved with BitCoin and I'd like to see this baby take off. So, I hope to be of some use in that particular discussion, as an only-slightly-above-average user.

Hello,

I mine using an FPGA device and wanted to discuss my experience using the developer's software from this thread:
http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=9047.200

but I cant..

I suppose I can just email to thank him for his software via the address he gives at his projects guthub. Besides the point.

I am not an active forum user, any forum, and this one particular thread convinced me to register at this website so that I could join that specific conversation after following it for the past month or so. I don't mean to be negative right off the bat, but this posting policy for new registered users, in my case at least, is kinda disappointing and a little annoying.

Thanks in advance, if there is some moderator policy that can give me privilege to post on that thread. I promise to not be a troll, and would like to not have to be a "spammer" to reach required post count.

Newbie here.  Posted in some of the other forums, and suddenly found that the rules had changed. <wry grin>  I'm planning to acquire a few bitcoins sometime soon, probably on Mt. Gox or TradeHill, and probably also to sell some books, etc. for bitcoins.  The idea of bitcoin is intriguing; it will be interesting to see if it pans out.

Hi

I joined to make a post and found out I cannot make a post :( However, I do understand as spam does nothing but detract from the community.

The post I was going to make was in the "mining still profitable" thread...someone was calling another poster an idiot and using the 563 Mhash/s as the reason.  I wanted to point out that in the next day or so you will not earn 1 BTC w/563 Mhash/s miner rate thus who is the idiot :P

It took me a while to even realize I was banned to the newbie forums.  I have been a member since May 17th and am a frequent lurker.  I have mined about 20 bitcoins so far (just letting my home machine run on a pool at night and while I am at work during the day with 1 video card).  I sold a few on MtGox once, and have been looking into ways I can offer BTC purchases on a few of the small websites I run. Being stuck in the newb forums is kinda boring.

Hi, I'm Michael. I love the idea of decentralised, pseudonymous, electronic, currency. I accept bitcoins in exchange for doing certain tasks (see my website[1]). I have known about bitcoins for a number of months now, and think it's a great idea.

As can be seen in my sig, I also have a bitcoin.it wiki account, though haven't really used it much. I do, however, intend to be more active in the bitcoin community from now on.

Heyhey

A newbie miner here :P
I've been wanting a fast hash cracking rig for cracking MD5's etc for a while now. And when i learned about BTC and mining i just had to try it.
Doing about 1200Mhash/sec now on 3 machines.

I don't have to break even with hardware costs by mining because the MD5 cracking will do that :)
So as long as the mining brings more value then the electricity costs, the rig stays on.

I'm now realizing I definitely should've, so now I'm jumping on the train. I'm no miner, but I feel like this would be a fun low-profit day trading type thing :P Secondly, a friend of mine showed me a logo contest for 15 BTC, and I've already made up some mock-ups, but I now see new members can't post in most of the forums haha.

Hi, GoldenEagle here. You can call me GE. Joined and started reading a while ago. Have a couple of 6950's running ATM and getting about 630 M/hash. Stock cards with 840/800 speed. Waiting on my pci-e extender cables to get here and will setup both cards in one machine and unlock the shaders and overclock the GPU some more, hoping to hit 950. Going to stay with the 6950 bios and NOT run the 6970. Everything I have read has said that once card starts pulling more than 225w it starts throttling the GPU and the 6970 bios makes it go way past that at the clock speeds I want to hit. Better hash speeds with the 6950 bios in the end. Glad to be here and looking forward to learning and growing with the community.

Hello, you may know me by another name; however, today the forum no longer allowed me to access the network anonymously via tor.

This measure has stopped my business plan in its tracks.  Since I will probably no longer be able to conduct my business in the bitcoin economy until this problem is fixed, I have decided to turn my attentions to this problem directly.

Edit: problem solved... perhaps I was just hitting a bad exit node.

Hash: SHA256

Hi, my name is Eamon. I am an artist and life coach. I was a
software during the Internet bubble of '97-'01 and burned out hard.
I think bitcoin is the most exciting thing I've seen since I first
saw the Mozilla browser in 1993.  I just finished a B.S. degree in
Psychology, and although I'd like to go on to medical school, I see
Bitcoin as a unique oppurtunity. I've worked for an Internet
startup, and I've had my own consulting company. I'm fresh, and
ready to work like hell launching a new idea. I guess I might be go
back to being a software architect for a while.

I think the most interesting thing about Bitcoin is "alternative block
chains".  I also like using "prediction markets", such as Inkling Markets.
I put one prediction there, and would like to create more, but Bitcoin is
moving so fast!

I don't expect anyone to read this, since I guess we're all just trying to
get out of the Newbie box, but if there was one thing that I would want to
peirce through all the noise, it's this - "Life isn't fair. It's not your
job to make it fair. There is an oppurtunity here, take it, make it your
own, and spread the value to everyone you care about. If you could be a
thousand times more effective than you are RIGHT NOW, what would you be
doing?"

If you want to give me money, track me down in person. I want to provide
value, not beg for it.

Ha ha, point taken. I need to memorize that spelling, because it always takes me 5 tries to fix the spelling when Firefox underlines it. I actually noticed it just before posting, but it was after I signed the message, so fixing it would have meant signing it again.

I don't see the point to PGP signing every message, but I figure that it is a basic identity that I can offer as proof that I'm not a spammer. It might take longer to prove that I'm not an idiot, however!

Q: Why did the newbie post on the forum board?
A: Because even a chicken can make 5 forum posts!

Obviously, my sense of humor sucks too, but at least I'm not batman!

Looking forward to sharing what I've learned and learning from others!

Hey guys, I'm not really sure if I'm cut out for mining, too technical for me atm. Also I'm reluctant to send actual money to people for this form of currency...

Gunna be honest here. I dont really 'get it'. I want to get it though, and I am a big fan of technology. So i will blindly accept this technology and maybe play the bitcoin stock market and see how it treats me. I would love to purchase one, then figure out a way to turn it into hundreds.

If anyways knows a way to make this happen please PM me. Also accepting donations of coins.

Hello all. Initially started checking out Bitcoin about a year ago, CPU-mined off and on for a few weeks, then promptly forgot about it entirely. Fast-forward to a few months ago, whereupon checking out the going USD/BTC rate, I decided to jump back in the game. Now mining at around 300Mhash/s with a shiny new 5830, I'm getting ready to throw together a new rig. Should be fun.

Hi Madehimself, just FYI - MWD's first definition of "supple" is:

": compliant often to the point of obsequiousness"

Obsequiousness is not particularly flattering. I know there are other definitions. Interpreting supple as flexible or adaptable (in your thinking or outlook) would be preferable, but I think most people are more mean-spirited in my experience.

Now I'm too tired to sleep having been up all night and thought I'd reach out to others who are awake/online since I'm still stuck in Newbie-land.

I've been somewhat aware of the bitcoin project since last year, but until fairly recently, did not own a computer capable of doing much more then browse the web and creating nouce.
My current system is vastly more powerful and quieter.

Hi!  Rob Lister here.  Thanks for allowing me to login and post.

I heard about bitcoin about two weeks ago.  I saw the utility in it and so, read as much as I could about.  Very cool.  Very useful.  Great potential.  I downloaded the client played with it a bit.  I have a ZERO balance.  Therefore, someone should donate to me .02 bitcoins at 18qYFEWpXPWTTbnyTHhKxNJix371Uw2HmC

just kidding (ok, no i'm not)

Anyway...

I am intentionally retaining a degree of skepticism because I don't have a degree in computer science and have to take a lot of stuff on faith; stuff about the bitcoin markets, stuff about the currency architecture, stuff about the potential legal problems...lots of stuff.  For each item of 'stuff' there are threads galore on this forum (and others).  I'm reading about it.  I get the basics: you might even say i'm convinced of the basics.  I've seen no argument against the currency that holds water, or at least no argument that could not equally apply to the Dollar, the Pound or the Deutschmark. 

So, I'm not going to outright buy any bitcoins, but if I can find an ebay-esk type website that will allow me to sell stuff, I'll do that.  Any links?

Also, is there an Alt-key that gives the bitcoin currency symbol?

Sorry to tell you, that you won't ever break even with this setup. We will see a difficulty of 10,000,000 in a couple of weeks, after that you can be glad to cover the costs of energy with GPU mining. Certainly you won't have the cost of investment back up to that point.

Title: An Introduction
Post by: Phinnaeus Gage on June 16, 2011, 04:29:23 PM
Hello, everyone. My name is Phinnaeus Gage and I live in Japan. Only kidding! I live in the US and my moniker is a pseudonym. Reason being: I want to remain...wait for it...anonymous. Yes, I enjoy injecting humor in my posts.

For the past 3 days, I've spent hours reading the messages on this forum. Yesterday, I spent eight hours reading everything @Allinvain wrote. I'm not a reporter of any kind, but wanted to see if I could help solve the missing bitcoins mystery. More on that in later posts after I past the newbie status.

I'm not a troll in any sense of the word.

My main objective is to start another "bitcoin only" commerce site, hence the joining of this forum. I won't be seeking suggestions, or the like, and will only share the site once it's up and running.

What I've enjoy about reading this forum is how the members, for the most part, have a high command of the English language. Thank you for that. I hope my contributations pass muster.

In closing, soon they'll may be an Onion headline that'll read: Chinese Prisoners Forced to Mine Bitcoins.

EDIT: With the exception of adding a missed period at the end of the last sentence, the above post has never been edited. What appears below this paragraph is a secret project I'm working on, started on 2-11-2013. If found, please don't tell anybody. I doubt if it will be found, for I've covered my tracks pretty damn good.

Hey guys,

I recently found out about this whole BitCoin thing, and became enthralled. I have a moderately powerful computer (3-core (4th unlocked) AMD phenom @ 3.0ghz, 12 gb RAM, and a Radeon 5770) So far my average hash rate has been about 170 Mhash/s, still working on ways to increase it. Other than that, I am a comp science major in Pennsylvania, and that is pretty much it.  ;D

Hello everyone!  I have been reading a lot in the forums the past few weeks and got bitten by the Bitcoin bug.

I managed to get a few computers up and running with the mining pools so I have a small supply of Bitcoins coming in and got to play with Mt Gox a little bit.  Seems very interesting thus far.

I have an established Ebay store and sell almost every kind of battery known to man, mostly cordless phone, laptop, and cell phone batteries.  At some point I am looking foreword expanding my business to the Bitcoin community and start offering my products for sale at reasonable Bitcoin prices.

Anyway, don't mean to ramble on but keep your eyes on my in the future if you are looking for a battery and want to pay with Bitcoins.

Hello all. I've read up on bitcoins for a while and think it's a very interesting concept. Seems like a cool form of payment. I'm still trying to find out the best way to accept them as payments for a website that can adjust to exchange rates rather than fixed btc price.

Post by: christhecoolboy on June 16, 2011, 08:18:19 PM
Hey all,

I thought this would be a good time to say hello, My name is Chris, I come from the UK and I am starting to mine bitcoins, I think bitcoins are the way of the future, Some people say that it's not real money because it comes from thin air, but, Isn't that where money comes from, you plant a tree and the elements help it grow and its cut down to make paper, Bitcoins are the way of the future.

They are new and fresh and Digital, Yeah, that's what Paypal is, but somehow it's different to this, With Paypal, You have to put money in, With Bitcoin Mining, your leaving your computer on and doing whatever it does and you get money... Your working for money, but not doing anything at all, It is the perfect way to make money... All you need is a computer with a good graphics card and you are ready to begin... Well, I think it's time to finish my first message now, This was supposed to be quick...   ;D

Thanks,
Chris

Phew.. normally I'd say I just registered for asking the owner of bitmarket.eu why the account-activation takes so long... but hey, now I'm finding me writing an introduction of myself :P.
Well I've heard of Bitcoins just right before the news boom, but wasn't fast enough to notice that they would be a nice trading toy.
Daily, I laugh at exchange sites claiming that they would support "hundreds" of payment methods - and you open their "Deposit Funds" menus and find "Oh dear, you cannot deposit funds in EUR, as we do not support it by now."... you click through the other currencies of the "hundreds" and read this at 50% of the pages... congratz, exchange sites.
Oh, I wanted to introduce myself and not blame the exchange sites... well, sry :). I think you may draw some conclusions of what I've written, who I am and what I'm here for :).

Hello everyone,
I read about bitcoin a week ago and now want to experience the mining of bitcoin.
I installed Bitcoin version 0.3.22-beta on my PC but when I click on 'settings' I only get 2 options: 'your receiving address...' and 'Options'.

I don't see the option for generating bitcoins as I have seen on a youtube tutorial.

Please let me know if I missed a step in the installation or if the option for generating bitcoin is hidden elsewhere.

Many thanks.

Just got started last week with bitcoin and I'm hooked.  Have a homebuilt machine with a pair of Sapphire Radeon 6870's churning out hashes.  Right now they're each connected to a remote pool, but I'm looking to do my own (of course!).  Have XenlandMiningPool 99% installed on an Amazon AWS VM but am having trouble with one of the cron jobs. 

Not sure what it takes to get access to post to the rest of the board. :(

I am very interested by all of this and hope to get started in the next couple of weeks (been lurking for a while).

I have done quite a lot of reading and hope to get into all aspects of Bitcoin (mining/speculation/business).

I love the idea of this currency and hope to be able to see it come to fruition.

Oh well, back to lurking.

Im not a noob, but right now its at 15 bux, and I think its on a decline.  Im scared ppl arent buying coins and ppl are selling like crazy just to get out.  We need major media coverage! Major positive coverage!  We need CNN, MSNBC and other stations to tell the benefits of bitcoin so people can join in and stimulate the economy.  Or else it is doomed!  Who thinks the same!

Hi, Im from central germany, act. with deepbit for a few days @ est. 750 MHs (3xHD5830, win7x64 KIV's GUI/poclbm), planning to come up with another 1.5 - 2.0 GHs next days :-) if they can deliver some 6990's.

***

Open question: Does anyone know, how many 5830 or 6990 cards can take a ROG formula IV board with Win7x64?

***

Deepbit again & again under attack?? & 3 THs add. power since two days ago within the network. For a short time this start with add. 6 THs. This is MWatts of electricity & cooling power. How can pay this for a longer time on MtGox rates going down?

***

MtGox is @ consolidation after an unawaited rally at the beginning of June. Keep cool, usd 50/BTC comes within the next months. This last rally was only the prelude. Now the market have enough BTC to strenghten BTC use itself. After this will come the next rally.

But, additionally, if or when Greek is going down, defaulted & than the Euro is going down a little bit, this is BTC-push power again, the lost confidence into classical currency.

If a big rating agency, as announced earlier, will downgrading the U.S. in july (if the administration can not handle the congress properly regarding the allowed national dept), this is the next step. So take your time, think about the powerfull factors at work, wait until good selling rates. :-)

***

And a little bit later, if I made it some day out of this strange newbie section, I will render you the ultimate BTC-deflation scenario if we'll see sometimes the crash of a major currency. Everyone he waits until this time with a few BTC in his wallet, will be a happy man!

R.

Post by: TeaRex on June 17, 2011, 08:30:43 AM
Hello, I'm TeaRex from Hannover Germany. I'm currently mining, not really interested in speculation by now, so I sell my coins whenever I get 5 or so.

I got a 6990 last week... sleek beast, though I heard electrical heating is kinda old-fashioned. ;-)

Converted my main Desktop computer into a mining rig for now, and am using my netbook for other stuff until the 6990 is paid off (which I do hope will actually happen before difficulty really goes through the sky...). I found that running the computer with the case open and pointing a large room fan at the card on lowest setting allows it to run with a lot less noise, I can even sleep in the same room (which is the only one I have in this shared apartment).

For the moment I'm being adventurous and trying out the new Taiwan "Multipool" but unless the payout is noticeably higher, I plan to return to Bitcoinpool soon because of the great community spirit and openness.

Currently I'm mining on a freshly installed Windows 7 with Phoenix SVN. So I had to learn how to install and configure Python to run it... If you want to try it look at the How-To I posted in the Bitcoinpool forum.

That's it for now, bye!

We're looking at starting an exchange, it's already starting moving ahead. Drop by #bitcoin-aus some time.

Been following this for a couple of weeks and lurking, but I should start building a rep here so I can post...

So, I was thinking about getting mining hardware and have decided instead to just buy BTC where possible and market supports it, I've now successfully waited out doing a few transactions on Dwolla and VirWoX so have some coins in the wallet, and I'm wanting to start bartering to get more.  And if I had an extra couple of hundred to invest, I'd be most interested in the open FPGA miners and a board, yes I know that is not at present economical but I would treat it like a learning experience.  Hoping to see that project grow, certainly. 

Thanks for all the accumulated knowledge here, and hello!

Hi Everyone, I'm new here.

So I've been reading a lot about Bitcoins for the last few days, and I think it's a beautiful ideal. I certainly want to see it succeed, as over the last few years I've begun to understand whom inflation systems really are geared to benefit the most, and it's not me, nor the vast majority of people I know.

I'm interested in the permanently currency capped system (although 21Million is faaar too few BTC for the whole world to have a share in, even down to 8 decimals (that's 3000 microBTC per person currently on earth...hoarding = major economic failure, unless I'm misunderstanding something, which I must be, because I doubt no one else has realized this by now). I've heard both that it can be split down infinitely, and that it goes to 8 decimals, so I'm a bit confused about that. There does need to be a more natural way to split coins (i've seen that already mentioned in a few threads, though) - mainstream will never accept 0.00000005334 as a satisfactory payment amount :).

I'm not really interested in the fact that this is supposedly anonymous (although I don't actually believe that's completely the case), but I love the fact that it is run via p2p. The anonymous thing may actually be something that will turn legitimate businesses away - association with shadiness. There's so much pain governments already cause small businesses, and cheating income is a terrible risk to take, when they can easily see what you've bought with the "$1000 income you declared last tax year". To encourage businesses to sign up, they mustn't be enticed by the "Tax man won't know what you're doing" factor, as that will just cause this currency to have too many enemies. I believe more businesses will actually join if honesty and trust (verified = pref) is what the whole network is based on.

I believe the benefits of a system like this (secure and relatively fast transfers, no "owner" setting new rules) can win support on their own merit. I, for one, am interested in creating value for the currency, by creating bitcoin only products if I can - for it to succeed it needs something to compare itself to other than another currency (which is all its doing now).

Anyway does that count as 5 posts? or should I edit and split it all up :)

Hello everyone, I'm almbfsek. I've first heard about Bitcoin when it was still equal to couple of dollars. Back then, I did some mining. I even got some free BTC from the Faucet then I simply forgot about everything and lost my wallet while upgrading my OS. Now, after many months, I'm too late on the Bitcoin bandwagon -as always-. With the regret of missing the possibility of being a rich man, I've registered here thinking about buying lots of GPUs and doing 7/24 mining but then I realized that with the current speed of difficulty increase, my gain wouldn't even cover the initial investment (am I wrong?). So here I am, just trying to contribute to the community because I still like the idea behind Bitcoins.

Cheers

Hello all

Just started mining (bitcoin and namecoin pools) a few days ago, located in Northern Indiana, about 250-300 Mhash/s, playing with guiminer and was doing some namecoin solo mining on a 4850 to try and get lucky before the difficulty increase this morning, no such luck but I'll probably keep trying for a couple weeks and then go back to the pool my other card is a 5770 mostly in the namecoin pool with a bitcoin pool as a backup.

So, I've read enough about Bitcoin mining that I think I can do a little something with it.  I used to like to build and overclock computers and play games but have kind of been out of that scene for several years now.  Bitcoin looks like as good of an excuse as any to jump back in! :)

I have three computers that all I need to do is upgrade the video cards and I'm off and running.  I'm looking at Radeon HD 6770s right now as the price to performance ratio seems pretty good. How good is the 6770 for actual gaming?  The 128-bit memory makes me think it might not be so great for gaming.  I mostly play Team Fortress 2 if I play anything these days.

No dreams of getting rich but if I can get the cards to pay for themselves in a few months then that would be a success story as far as I'm concerned.

P.S.  Who out there can guess how my forum name relates to Bitcoin?  :)

Hello fellow noobs.

I've been a lurker here for about a month.

Started mining with a 5830 about 3 weeks ago, and since then have become quite enthusiastic about the future of this nascent digital currency.

I'm toying with the idea of starting a new bitcoin exchange for Canada (well more than toying actually, more info to come later hopefully).

Anyhow, I understand the need for restricting newbies after seeing the forum carnage over the last couple of weeks with the rollercoaster ride that bitcoin has been going through, but I wish I could post in one of the main forum threads to subscribe http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=2461.0 (http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=2461.0) looks really interesting.

Anyway, happy bitcoining!

Hi Guys,

Started Mining with a few cheap rigs 600NZD
Hoping to see a grow in this awesome currency.
Will eventually incorporate Bitcoin into a number of my online business, given there is a demand :)
Eventually will look into developing tools for this community and hopefully look into FPGA mining and its implementation.

Some initial Ideas,

Potential BTC Shop Ideas,
Dedicated Servers
Seedboxes
Virtual Private Servers
BNC
IRCD
All with the ability to accept BTC as payment (whilst remaining competitive to the $ Market)

Potential Tools,
Difficulty Factor Anticipator + HashRate + Current Exchange (All Supported Currencies) + Definable Duration Calculator
Poker/Gambling System between Friends
Paypal Exchange APi (As Donation so irriversible)
Mass deployment scripts for CPU Mining with Pooled Mining APi's ( For universities/datacenters etc )

Just a few Ideas to get kickstarted
Feel Free to inspire....

Sup. I've just started getting bitcoins. I'm not mining because my setup consists of 2 laptops, one only slightly less decrepit than the other. I was totally interested in bitcoin as a currency to use and spend but then watching this forum I guess I sort of got caught up in the currency as commodity thing and also became fascinated with the way people relate to bitcoin. Honestly, I'm 1/2 totally into this and 1/2 fascinated by the strange religious overtones that've grown up around it.

I'm a retired (art) school teacher and rare/collectible book store owner.
Over the years, I've managed to collect a pretty large collection of vintage/ historic photos that I consider somewhat of a 'time capsule'
of film photography dating from the mid 1800s to the latter 1900s.
As the years proceed, I deem this will become as important an era in some ways as the Renaissance period due to the fact that the
digital camera changed (morphed) photography forevermore.  The 'film era' will be termed a more scientific/historic era since most images
were exactly what you see, nothing more, nothing less.
I am now underway to determine exactly what to do with my collection and how I can begin making major profit or stipend from it and
open to any/ all ideas and suggestions.

Hi,

I like the concept of Bitcoins, and I'm now mining with continuumpool. I study linguistics and I'm currently learning Japanese.

Thanks. (Trying to get my post-count to five).

Hi there,

I first heard og the concept of Bitcoins when Wikileaks officially supported donations in BTC.
I like the idea and just ordered some video cards to build my own rig. Pretty interested in how things go.

Still wondering if it is better to use a pool or solo (server) mining when I have ~900Mhash/sex.
How to create my own private mining pool?


Cheers

It's always better to pool. It's more consistent, and you don't have to wait (possibly) years to see any bitcoins.

As soon as I'm out of the newbie box I have some exciting and what I hope to be ground shaking bitcoin projects to really help promote the movement and make bit coins more main stream!

Hi all

Just started mining last week; discussed the topic with a couple friends and trying to see where this leads.
I've not yet found a pool I'm liking yet, but I'm gathering a bunch of statistics from each to make a good choice.
I'm mining with a new Radeon HD 5770 just purchased on Amazon (total cost ~£15 as I had already a voucher there).
Wish me luck.

Hello,  I'm George and I'm working on a mining pool that will be available on IPv4 AND IPv6!

I'm not sure if any other pools are on IPv6 yet but, I think this would be a BIG help to people
running really large mining operations(Just imagine ALL of your systems having REAL, ROUTABLE IP address instead of that 192.168 NAT crap!).
I'm also an "IPv6 Sage" so if anyone needs help getting on IPv6 I'd be happy to lend assistance!
I'm not sure what the exact address will be yet so I'll hold off on that until it's all setup and running.

Hello fellow bitcoin users.  I first came across bitcoin a few months ago but dismissed it as a neat idea that would never go anywhere.  I then came across it again about a month ago when this latest burst of press hit, which lead me to look into it more closely.  I will admit that I am now completely fascinated by this concept and its enormous potential.

My primary interest is on the merchant side.  I work with an investment and consulting group whose primary focus is web based businesses.  The idea of an alternative to credit cards as a form of online payment has me really intrigued.  The big card companies (visa/mc/amex) essentially have a monopoly on internet payments and they've been using this monopoly power in ways that are becoming increasingly unfavorable to the merchant.

I look forward to discussing this emerging technology with this community.

Hey all. Ive recently started mining. Already had a 5850 and just ordered a 5830. I figure a $110 investment isnt a terrible risk. I like the idea of bitcoin, hope to see it take off. I'll be honest and admit that I'll be happy if I'm able to mine for a bit, collect a few coins and trade them for some hardware, but looking forward to seeing where this goes.

PM'd IMO.  Although the message does not show up in my outbox, so please let me know if you didn't receive it.

Currently looking for more programmers, designers, and *maybe* outside investors (although I'll cover most of the investment).  If anyone is interested in contributing for either a flat fee (USD or BTC) or equity share, you can PM me, and I'll let you know if we can use you at the moment.  Even if we can't, we plan on expanding very quickly after launch, and I'll make sure to put all interested parties on a list of people to contact when we need fresh talent.

Cheers

It's been a wild ride for me these last days since i've learned about bitcoins
I've tried https://www.virwox.com/ but cannot recommend them because their commissions are outrageous

call me crazy but i'd like to try mining with an acer aspire 7552g laptop
with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850

on btcguild

if i make 1btc/day the investment should pay of in about 70 days (not calculating energy)

until the cia prohibits it we are part of something really amazing

good luck again
and have nice day

Hey all. New to the Bitcoin economy despite having researched the currency since last year.

I'm a huge believer in sound money and I do see Bitcoin as Max Keiser said, "The currency of the resistance." I'm currently a student about to get my Bachelor's degree in Economics and Criminology and I am an investor and work at a precious metals brokerage firm. I've just started pooled mining with BTC Guild and using GUIMiner (with so-so results) but as the difficulty has increased I personally find mining less profitable vs. trading. Regardless I hope I can contribute to the community and if anyone would like to donate a tiny amount to help me out I'd appreciate it! Thanks! 19m3deHDqhQ3h1D996QbLcwPCEJGA9v2qE

Hello all, I'm ccatlr or just cc or Chad. Was planning to mine, but my hardware is crap, was gonna pick up piece of a BTC via paypal, but paypal is crap, and I'm trying to pickup an old t39 on the cheap on ebay.

 Heard mention of services for BTC, and am not sure what I could offer, an email account at my domain (legionracing.com) which is google hosted.
 or a hostname/subdomain *.legionracing.com
 No idea really.


Domain has been around (and mine) since the InterNIC days, however long that has been.

Either way, it's all cool toys and currency down to the thousandth and beyond is neat, and precise.

Anywho, my first post, and I'm in no hurry to get out of the newbie box, it's comfy in here and they let me come and go as I please. :)

Hi,

I'm mnemonix and I'm especially interested in FPGA based bitcoin mining because I've been working quite a while with FPGAs.

I already found one FPGA miner here:
http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=9047.0

Are there other miners out there?

All the best,

Hi, I have a 5870 and am trying to get hashkill working in Ubuntu 10.04 (MythTV server), and I want to post in this thread: http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=6819.300

So I can ask how to get over this problem I am having:
Code:
$ hashkill-gpu -p bitcoin
hashkill-gpu: /usr/lib/nvidia-current/libOpenCL.so: no version information available (required by hashkill-gpu)

[hashkill] Version 0.2.5
[hashkill] Plugin 'bitcoin' loaded successfully
[error] (ocl-threads.c:97) clGetPlatformIDs returned error (no OpenCL installed?)
[hashkill] Threads queue size: 128 plaintexts/thread

I'm pretty sure that this is because I'm trying to get this going on Ubuntu 10.04 and it's probably got an older version of the SDK, but I don't know which SDK we are talking about :)

Thanks!

I am here to read stuff about things and write stuff about other things.

ok, I will actually take this seriously.

I originally came to this forum to learn about bitcoin, what it is, what it takes to mine, etc.  after reading a story on slashdot.  It made me think alot of the SETI@HOME project but with a monetary component.  Heck, I always thought that distributed computing was a great idea but the small additional electricity cost would certainly add up.

I think that there is alot of potential for small exchanges without the need for regulation.  I akin it more to a cash transaction with no boundaries.

With conversion rates, transaction fees and all the other fees, if I send my friend $100USD via paypal, that's $3 in fees.  More if there is a currency exchange, even more if a credit card is involved.  I hate paypal.  I love their service.  I hate their fees.

Oh, I also do scripting and c# dev work.

and, someone is behind you, watching you read this post.  Yeah you.

 I'm a longtime mobile developer, and a student of Austrian economics and sound money.  I know a thing or two about how currencies work, and was an extreme bitcoin skeptic at first.  I studied it for a couple of days, and now I'm a true believer, bitcoin is real money.   There are a lot of gold bugs out there that yell bitcoin is a fraud and only gold is real money, but most of them don't understand why gold itself has value.  Gold, historically served as money because of the following properties, these properties are what gives gold it's "intrinsic value", a word used by many but understood by few.

1) You can't counterfeit it
2) It's easy to recognize
3) It's portable
4) It's easy to divide
5) it is not consumed industrially, so the supply is stable

bitcoin shares all of the above properties as well..

Hi there!

Greetings from Spain. I'm a webdeveloper who recently discovered BitCoin and thought was an interesting "place to be".

In fact, firstly I wanted to buy some BTCs, but I don't feel confortable paying a minimum of 32 eur of "comission" in order to make a deposit, so I went to the store, bought a Radeon 5870, took an old PC, plugged it there, installed ubuntu, DiabloMiner, tweaked speed of GPU and ram and started to mine at 400 MH/s ;)

Now I have almost 0.50 BTC!! LOL

I hope to contribute in one or other way with BitCoin ecosystem.

Best regards

Sorry, but I already take part in too many forums to want to keep up with another one, so after this I'm gone.  I wouldn't have even posted this much except it seems for some reason to be a necessary step towards getting my coins out of Deepbit.net.

Anyway, bye!

Tried to mine some on my semi-old gaming rig but its really pointless (single 5770).

I have, however,  a feeling 99% of bitcoin users are either speculators or miners, i doubt this will get anywhere.
please tell me i'm wrong.

Hi all,

I came here to make some extra cash on mining with BTC. I think BTC is neat concept, but in the end, likely won't work. Todays events have shown just how worthless your $15 per BTC bitcoins can be, note the people picking up like 100,000 BTC for 0.01 dollars each.

I'm a non-traditional age graduate student in math at a prestigious US university, and I have an interest in statistics and also computer science. I've got my client configured fine and a couple of my math buddies and are are talking about building a pool across our University LAN and looking into the mechanics of bitcoin for a little research project. Oh yeah, and free electricity :)

Greetings. 1st posting.

I was initially turned off by BC a few months ago when I heard that there was planned inflation. That's when I stopped listening. Boy do I wish I had taken 30 more seconds to investigate.

Kudos to Satoshi. I'm incredibly impressed at how he put the pieces together.

Kudos to the developers for making it better.

Kudos to everyone on the forum who contributes their 2 cents in thoughtful ways.

I'm really crossing my fingers that BTC takes off. I'm personally invested, but regardless, I know that BTC can and will change the world for the better - and that's even more important.

Cheers,
bc

I'm a developer, so I'd love to contribute as a developer. I'm currently struggling with the most scarce of all resources, though.

This project is unique in that it intersects three of my top interests:

Austrian Economics (effectively)
Software Dev
Opportunity for profit

Since the launch.is slashdotting, I've been almost entirely consumed with BTC.

Ready to start making Bitcoin exchanges more secure.

I just found out about Bitcoin a couple weeks ago and now they are having a depression because of hacked exchanges.

Anyone else thinking of building a full P2P Bitcoin exchange?

I did some work with with Distributed Hash Tables and distributed publish-subscribe frameworks in the past. This would be a potential resilient infrastructure to build an exchange.

I would accept bitcoin as a donation to support my music, and I have a IT consulting business that would also accept BTC as payment for my services as well, altough my current customers do not pay via BTC and they eat up most of my time.

I'm an old fashioned coin dealer who has been using various stores of wealth against the falling and failing monetary supplies for a while now. This means instead of keeping money around, I buy land that can grow food or host solar energy collectors, I buy gold and silver and I study things that help me stay diversified. A little while ago someone on a coin forum approached me about selling him a coin he wanted in exchange for Bitcoins and I looked into it... low and behold... it works (of course).

I admit I'm not going to risk a six figure coin sale for Bitcoins but I'm also of the mind that you have to get some skin in the game at some point. I'm pretty happy to conduct reasonable sales of collectible silver or modern collectors coins for payment in Bitcoins. We are a brick and mortar company with 20 years in the business. I've accepted almost everything for payment, even firewood so why not Bitcoins?

Hi, My name is Chris and I can't possibly be a noob anymore, since I'm getting spam from someone who scored the Mt Gox database.

Or, maybe I am a nob because I never managed to get any money transferred to Mt Gox yet.

Or maybe I'm not a noob since I didn't lose anything.

Oh well.  Hi, everyone!

Greetings for eastern Europe. I've been into cryptography for a long time now. And bitcoins from it's roots interests me. I considered in investing $ in bitcoins (buying them), but now i started mining. Now @ 1x 6950. Hopping to upgrade my rig or even expand to multiple ones. Good luck to everybody!

Howdy
I have been keen on bitcoins when I first heard of them way back in the beginning of the month. Seen the potential then, when I got up this morn I near shat myself on reading about the hack but I still think all will be good and the exchanges will have to be doing some serious security changes. So as I am fairly poor anyway after injuries over the years I invested what I could into bitcoin seeing it had and would grow in value, I still do and today was a hickup that will sort some people out. Should be some cheap coins for the pickup soon.

Hi, just saw this post and I bet I have to introduce me a lil.

I am a long experienced coder in php / perl / C and my favorite: ASM (on windows)
I am also computer security specialist who work for a firm at Quebec City. I also do online marketing since 3 years now and I'm really happy to discovered bitcoin.

I just discovered bitcoin about a week ago and I think this is probably the best project ever launched to change the way people do business on the net.

I have a lot of new ideas poping into my head, and I already took action into building projects.

my ideas are (not complete list):
- food for bitcoins like bitmunchies but easyer for Canadian people to buy their foods.
- Escrow service for bitcoin, protect both buyer and seller, as I saw there's only few and buyer can abuse a lot of guys selling goods.
  I already launched this service so far, I don't know if I can post URl but I don't see something against it in the forum rules: so here is the bitcoin escrow service: http://www.btcrow.com . The service is operational and all was tested.
- I also think that all we NEED in life must be able to use the bitcoin system so I'm preparing more things soon.

This is a quick introduction of me :).

Thanks for reading.

Hey all,

I'm a writer based in Chicago.  I'm not a miner or trader, but I am very interested in the sociology and economics of the Bitcoin experiment.

I also find the goldbuggery / currency crankery that Bitcoin tends to attract to be personally hilarious.  I was around for the adoption of the web, and I see something around Bitcoin that is very familiar to something I saw on USENET and early forums:  a huge volume of dramatically wrong utterances espoused by so many people that the world as we knew it was over, man.  

Right.  Fifteen years later on, giant corporate monoliths are actually bigger, the biggest piles of capital are still pushed around by idiots whose only qualification is to have been pooped out of elite business schools, and with very few exceptions, internet entrepreneurship has created investment bubbles rather than substantive change in value creation.    

Cryptocurrency is awesome.  It isn't going to make economic libertarian whackos happy, though.  The only thing that will do that is weed.

Anyway, I love P2P stories and I find Bitcoin amazing.

From the point of view of the rich, yes, that is what I am saying.

To the rich, the net has provided new avenues for venture capital, and expanded the opportunity for investment in net-related technologies, but these by and large have been bubble investments.  And the rich were already profiting from bubbles - for example, nobody needed the web to invent mortgage-backed securities.  Generally, very little change there.

Sure, there are exceptions, but by and large, the "immutable bylaws of business" have continued to accrete capital to the rich.   In 1996, the wild-eyed among us were certain that capital itself was being democratized and decentralized (such as Bitcoin/P2P cryptocurrency is often said to be doing).  That is, to say the least, not the case a decade and a half later.

well, thats merely side of the coin now isn't it.  I do beleive it(our beloved internet) has atleast mildly shrunk the gap and allowed many people to elevate themselves, and made it much cheaper for the little guy to try and get ahead, share information, get around the big bad fortune 500'ers and other rich fat cats.

many of the rich are rich for a reason, they are ruthless and/or smart and of course use new tech to stay richer

In the US, there's been zero income gap-shrinking, sorry.  Certainly not since the 90s - it's been exclusively gap-widening.  Actually it's been gap-widening since the 50s, the time when labor was most organized and taxes on the rich at their highest.   See: http://www.businessinsider.com/15-charts-about-wealth-and-inequality-in-america-2010-4  (It's also true that that time was when the bulk of the rest of the industrialized world was in ruins due to WWII).

Quote

Sure, there are different reasons, but the biggest reason is this: at least half of the rich are rich because of inheritance.  I'm not sure how ruthless or smart one needs to be to come chargin' outta that privileged uterus.  Here's how it was in 1997: not much different today. 

http://www.faireconomy.org/press_room/1997/born_on_third_base_sources_of_wealth_of_1997_forbes_400

To be clear, I'm not saying that it's hopeless to use Bitcoin, P2P or the web or anything.  I'm saying that overstating the power of these things does us all a disservice and that equal time and attention should be given to the real world we live in as these cool new systems arrive.  As a writer, that's kind of what  I'm here to do :)

Both of us are experienced in tech start-ups, social media, marketing, advertising, investing, entrepreneurship, economics, and consulting on all topics. We love discussions and questions.

We've begun mining operations, trades (currencies & GLBSE), and purchasing w/ BTC for personal interest. We'll see where that leads for business opportunities.  ;)

We're both excited to get our hands dirty in the fields of bitcoin. Any time we post you'll know who's who. I'll be signing "Coinvestor (Ryan)" and he'll do the like. PM us with the topic and to whom the message is intended in the subject line. We'll be punctual if you send it in U.S. hours.  :)

Hello I found out about bitcoin thanks to all the silkroad media attention but the concept
really struck a cord wth me as I am a huge fan of Neal Stephensons books particularly cryptonomicon
and some libertarian ideas. Not a real libertarian though. I consider myself a socialist libertarian as their are some
things like energy that are to important and need long term planning so need more controls than a for profit company.

Howdy!

I've been followin' BitCoin for a few weeks now, and I'm interested. I'm very open to a cryptocurrency but I'm terrified that this isn't going to be the one that 'sticks'. Either way, I'm willing to start getting into it.

I'm really hoping to meet some local bitcoin folks and see what kind of services I can offer them. I have a welding torch, a plumbers wrench, a multimeter, and a ton of small appliances.  Usually I work off USD via craigslist, but I'm gonna start taking BitCoins for all my small sales as well. I hope I don't regret it, and I am super nervous about how I'm going to calculate value of physical objects for BitCoins; but I am not relying on small contracts and sales to keep myself fed and in rent so the risk might be worth it.

Now how many bitcoins is a geodesic dome worth?  HRMMMMMMM......

Hello.  I'm a miner, only a few weeks old.  Just started trading on mtgox seriously a day before the big hooplah.  Was furiously hitting buy the whole time but it was apparent things were seriously not working at that point.   I'm glad they're rolling back and taking the time to implement some serious security and test it.  Largely I want to get my 50 posts in so I can say that to the whiners with 1000 points.  Let them get it right.

I'm mining maybe for profit but at least to pay off my new hardware.  It's perfect for some future programming plans of mine involving AI and genetic programming.  Bitcoin mining clued me into the strength of ATI in integer ops.  So kudos! :)    Anyway, very exciting, all of this massively exponentially increasing GPU power.

I'm just burning spare CPU cycles at ~11 MHash/sec since as yet I got no GPU. So far bitcoin-miner for CPU and deepbit.com seem to be my stable optimal choices, although the former will likely change once I get a decent GPU.

Sure, there are different reasons, but the biggest reason is this: at least half of the rich are rich because of inheritance.  I'm not sure how ruthless or smart one needs to be to come chargin' outta that privileged uterus.  Here's how it was in 1997: not much different today.

Hey B26,

Thanks for the interesting link! I've been curious to see a breakdown like this and it's good to see some actual data to support what should be obvious to anyone who's been paying attention: It's the first $million that's the difficult part.

Now if only there were similar reports to confirm another suspicion -- that most all of the world's largest fortunes were built on fraud or other crimes -- the story would be a lot closer to complete.

Cheers,

Hi,

I'm Tom and yes, I know, I have a stupid username (tominator).  :P

I've been following bitcoins for a little over a month now and I have made about $1,000 now just by mining and selling coins using a couple of my computers.

By trade, I'm a web developer and computer programmer.

I tend to lurk a lot on the forums and on reddit.com/r/bitcoin, just reading and hardly every saying much. Every now and then I see someone posting something similar to my viewpoints on things, but I'm finally getting to a point where I feel like piping up with a comment or two of my own, which is why I came here to introduce myself.

So yeah. That's me.

I'm new, and totally excited to see how I can build up a mining rig to run 24/7 (hopefully with help from solar panels). Running on my spare PC right now, with an ATI 4850 doing about 80-82Mhash/s on BTCGuild. Overclocked the GPU to 725, underclocked Memory to 500 and it has been running steady for about 24 hours no hiccups.

My plan is to build a system with 3 or 4 ATI 5830's running (hopefully) about 300Mhash/s each when I move into my new place (I live in the boonies). I have already planned to invest in solar power for my home and was thinking of going the easy route (dubya dubya dubya clarianpower.com/solar.html) so I am not really worried about the electrical costs, as well as lighting costs due to the house using as much natural light as possible. I will probably have to use PCI-E extenders and build a custom case for the rig as well. I may have to use water cooling, but I am a total newb when it comes to that. That's pretty much it!

Hi,

I'm fairly new to Bitcoin. I've been using it for a few weeks and have used the forum to answer some of my questions in the past. I registered today, because I wanted to let those interested in the Bitcoin OS X homebrew formula (http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=3958.0) know that I submitted a patch to melek's previous formula. Hopefully, this attempt will be merged into homebrew, so that in the future Mac users can very easily get the headless client installed:

Code:
      $ brew install https://github.com/adamv/homebrew-alt/raw/master/versions/berkeley-db4.rb --without-java
      $ brew install boost
      $ brew install --ignore-dependencies bitcoind

The proposed patch does not link the install due to the dependency issue, but this can be resolved by using an optional flag:

Code:
      $ brew install --ignore-dependencies --no-keg-only bitcoind

The formula and pull request can be found here: https://github.com/mxcl/homebrew/pull/6110

Hello all, TerraHertz here. Eating my words (elsewhere) of just a couple of days ago, about how I'd stay out of Bitcoin due to thinking the entire thing is probably a government-run sting operation, intended to cause mucho pain to any who dare thumb their noses at Uncle Sam's worthless and soon to be hyperinflating paper.
See http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2612470 and  http://www.zgeek.com/content.php/7879-Alleged-500-000US-in-Bitcoins-stolen#new_comment

But then... the $500,000US in Bitcoins theft, MtGox flash crash, MtGox 'rollback' and all the arguing. Which make it clear that even though Bitcoin is probably going to be a very painful lesson to many, it's also going to be EXTREMELY ENTERTAINING in the process.
So... here I am running in the newbie mouse wheel. Heck, I may even put some money into this fun game.

TWO!

Everyone is here for a reason. Some Bitcoin supporters believe that they can earn lots of money from the soon-to-be success whereas others just want to be part of a new and growing economy. The latter are interested in the long-term effects. However, nobody really knows where this currency stands in a week, a month or even a whole year.

I'm clearly not one of these guys who just see Bitcoins as a method to earn lots of money or even storage fiat money in a more secure way. I'm interested in the functional principles of Bitcoin. And to be honest, studying it really is exciting. If you don't belong to that group of people wanting to discover cryptography, you maybe haven't understood the mechanics of cryptocurrencies and therefore aren't a good investor. Still, you're lucky. Bitcoins are proven to be secure.

I have no clue what Bitcoins will be worth in the future and how they will be perceived in public then. Nonetheless, Bitcoin is a fascinating project and I'm looking forward to supporting it and maybe bringing it to worldwide significance by my participation and by being a part of it.

Bob here,

I am a web developer, mainly focus on PHP/jQuery/MySQL and a graphic designer. I been following and doing Bitcoin related research for the past week now and am very interested and excited by the projects philosophy. I hope to start trading soon once the whole Mt. Gox thing is cleaned up which by the way in my personal opinion is a disaster and an mega epic uber fail on their part. MD5/1 Salt on the passwords? What the fuck where they thinking, they handle thousands of dollars a day.

Anyways this seems like a great community and I hope to stay here for a while.

So when in Rome do as the Romans do; I have been watching Bitcoin for a while now, mainly for what I would have described in some groups as entertainment purposes or in others I might have said intellectual curiosity.

Anyhow, the recent flurry of security related activity with Bitcoin pushed me over the edge to start to dig deeper which brings me to this community.

My background is in authentication systems, smartcards, biometrics, protocols and such my specific interest in the forum is to explore the interest in there being a Bitcoin Smart Card; one where you could keep your ECDSA and maybe any other information that is necessary from the wallet.

The newest PIV card edge (the interface exposed by a smart card), the smartcard standard used by the DoD and their contractors, documents how to deal with ECDSA amongst other related operations and it wouldnt take a huge amount of work for these cards to be integrated into a Bitcoin wallet.

Anyway, that's why I am here to see if its worth exploring this once I can post elsewhere I will start a thread on the topic.

lurker here too.  started following bitcoin with the explosion first week of june.  as a speculator, day trader, and techie, i grew a quick interest and spent the next few days/weeks learning everything i could about the bitcoin.  i don't have the PC setup for mining, so i just play on the market.

Are you with Mt Gox?  I also just started, I'm not in the market yet, I am looking at it to see if I want in.

Ryan,

Ron

Both could be done but the problem with contactless cards is availability of readers, additionally the security protocols around their use are less mature.

My initial thinking is a USB form form factor solution with an embeded reader; all self managed with no central card management solution; this seems to be inline with the philisophical approach supported by Bitcoins in general, though it has some risk in that if you brick your card your SoL.

Hi my name's Ben and I'm a mobile app developer. I've been interested in Bitcoin for some time, but only recently started really getting into it (I'll admit it's because of the much higher exchange rates it has now). I wish I'd gotten into it months ago, but what can you do ;D

I've currently got 4 mining rigs going, which I'm just trying to make enough money from this month before the difficulty level is out of control so that I can pay the difference that I'll lose selling the hardware used. Also having some fun playing the exchange market with my mined coins.

I'm looking into building an app for iOS and Android that will be a Bitcoin information and trading hub. I posted more about it in the "are you a developer thread". If anyone has any input on what they'd like to see in a Bitcoin app, feel free to PM me here or reply/dm me on Twitter @einsteinx2.

I discovered Bitcoins  just before the price doubled, from the Gawker and a couple of other articles. Since then I've been following this forum, including the "mining" threads.

I've researched the costs of building a mining system, not so much because I'd expect to make a lot of bitcoins with the ever increasing difficulty, but because I'd like to have my own desktop supercomputer: I've been researching trading systems for stocks & commodities and while alpha can be quantitatively achieved, it requires enormous number crunching capability. The solutions I was considering before didn't include GPUs, now they do.  Building a bitcoin mining system might be an easy introduction to GPU computing. Right now I am trying to understand the programming resources available for Clear CL vs CUDA, ATI vs. NVIDIA.

As an anarcho-capitalist I love the idea of bitcoins, and a bitcoin economy; but I can see many barriers to widespread adoption. For now, and for a long time I see it as a plaything for hobbyists, a vehicle for speculators, and as a medium of black-marketeers. Perhaps when the US government finishes Zimbabweizing  the economy and the currency people will turn to bitcoins, and it will then be a life-saver for many.

Hi all,

My name is Jean-Serge, I just want to say hi to all, even though I've been lurking around for a while. My specialty is in Flash action script game design and had a gig as an ASIC design engineer for a while. My main interest in this new currency is mining and I aim to work on create a low cost power efficient ASIC to mine bitcoins. Because it seems that as the network increases processing power as a whole, it becomes cost prohibitive to cram a lot of servers in a small amount of space. I know it is being attempted by several people, but I will try my best.

On my spare time, I write games for fun. Now that bitcoin is out, I plan on implementing this currency into the game.

Hello I'm new to Bitcoins. A good friend of mine first told me about it and how people are mining for digital "coins" thru their GPU. Ever since I have been lurking around on the forum and wiki pages to learn as much as I can. I have a measly Nvidia 9800GTX and have it OC'ed to the max at 41Mhps. Hopefully I will contribute more often as I get to learn more about the genius of bitcoin and the programming behind it all.

Hi,

My name is Chris, and I'm a part-time bitcoin day-trader and full-time technophile.  I found out about Bitcoin a few months ago and have been trading ever since.  So, yes, long-time lurker (by BTC standards). 

Personally, I'm a fairly accomplished businessman, so I see Bitcoin as a way to extend my investing experience.  The money that I may or may not make from it are far less important than the experience of watching an embryonic idea come to (hopefully) large-scale fruition.

Atlas Shrugged is all you need to concern yourself with, as far as I'm concerned.  I'm almost positive the public school system encourages you to read "The Fountainhead" so you'll never want to pick up Ayn Rand again.

Hello there,

Learned about bitcoin through a friend, and i think it has unlimited potential at this stage.

Recently started mining , both with GuiMiner and the browser version (bitcoinplus).

Bit disappointing results, because apparently i have an Nvidia card, which arent too great for mining...(unless someone knows a way to possibly improve it?).

The BTC are slowly trickiling in (or, wel, the 0.00001 BTC to be honest), but i'm having a great time exploring everything atm :)

Same here.  Read here for a long time without even registering, finally registered a month or so back, but never had need to post.  Now when I want to post in a thread (or PM someone) I find out I can't until I make some postings.  This is number 5, so once I've been logged in for another 2 hours I should be golden.

Hey there, I'm just a guy. Heard about Bitcoin a few months ago and wanted to buy some, but didn't. Kind of kicking myself now, heh.

Having fun learning all about Bitcoin, and working piece by piece on an instructional video that is similar to the famous "What is Bitcoin?" video, but with lower production values and more content and information.

Also interested in starting my own Bitcoin business once I've gained a little more rep and trust than the 6 posts I'm currently sitting on. :P

That's about all, hope to see you around!

Hello there,


my name is JP, and i'm from Belgium.

Learned about bitcoin through a friend, and i think it has unlimited potential at this stage.

Recently started mining , both with GuiMiner and the browser version (bitcoinplus).

Bit disappointing results, because apparently i have an Nvidia card, which arent too great for mining...(unless someone knows a way to possibly improve it?).

The BTC are slowly trickiling in (or, wel, the 0.00001 BTC to be honest), but i'm having a great time exploring everything atm :)

Hi there, I can recommend you mineco.in pool. This has only recently been started, as a result the rewards are quite high there compared to other pools I've tried. Of course the hash power is also limited (not a lot of users yet), so it can take a bit longer to finish a block then on other pools too.

  Hey.
  Here' my first question.
  Currently, I'm set up on slush's server.
  CPU only.  Using a cruddy old dell laptop.
  Averaging 375 khash/s.
  Am I one there?  Is it working?
  How do I know if it's working?
  I don't expect to make any serious money, but I am curious to see how the technology works.
  Will I make 0.00000005 for a day's work?

   Thanks in Advance,

I am up 4 BTC from these Double Trouble type Ponzi schemes :)
+4 from DT3, +4 from "High stakes double trouble", -3 from triple trouble (that thing was a bust)

And -1 from "2.25x trouble": http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=21262.0;topicseen
But it just started! Join in folks, and gamble! I fully expect to get a payout, so I'll be at +5.25 BTC after that.

Yo, I'm me. Originally I came up with this handle to separate my bitcoin identity from other net identities but it took on a life of its own, and now I'm trying to work out a beer delivery service in major Canadian cities where payment is solely made in bitcoins. Thanks a lot, bitcoins, now I have no free time again, lol.

I've been lurking the scene for a while, now I discovered that I've been newbiefied and I guess this is my ticket outta here.

I'm curious as to how serious you are about this. How much money do you plan to invest in this?

I'm pretty serious about it, but as it stands I'm a newbie to running a full blown business like this. I have a full time day job that gives me lots of funds to dump into this, but I'm looking for business partners, couriers in the major cities, etc.

I'm willing to invest as much as it takes, honestly. I really want to make something bitcoin-related that interests me as a person, and beer interests me, heh heh.

Interested in trading and  buying and selling goods/services
I am a dj/Music producer.
You can buy my album @ michaelnighttime.bancamp.com or I would prefer if you could check it out there and then purchase it with BTC, i've been selling it for 0.5 btc but i'm open to bargaining. PM me here or find me on OTC.

I am also willing to dj your next underground anarcho-liberterian rave either live via the internet or in person locally (local to PA/NJ/NY/DC/DE and surrounding area. ) for modest BTC reimbursement. Check out Michaelnighttime.com to hear the mixes.

I have many more ideas in the works as well. . .

I started my bitcoin adventure a month ago, been lucky enough to purchase a few coins via paypal at bitcoinmarket. I've shuffled them around nicely and made a small profit (of which 60% is frozen at Mt.Gox  :() . I also have a little mining rig, pulling 550mhs and partially heating the second story of my house  :D . Geographically speaking i'm in Chile (South America) I mayored in CompSci and i'm considering to start building a bitcoin community out here.

Hi, I've been trading bitcoins and following the forum for about three weeks now, and finally joined up, so I thought I'd get my feet wet here. I use ... well, used MtGox  >:(  and now Trade Hill to trade, and Dwolla. Getting the hang of things and enjoying being part of this amazing process of "creating" the BitCoin economy. Should be good.

Hello. Found out about BTC @ 25 cents from a fellow libertarian friend. He encouraged me to buy into gold. He got in (with one ounce!) @ $1200 I think, but BTC sounded speculative. I have been lurking around watching all these crazy events from the sidelines. I just wanted to pop in for discussion and be apart of the community. Cryptocurrency is the future, until D-Wave's quantum computer gets out... then Quantum-Cryptocurrency is the future. At least that is according to my limited understanding.

Anyhow, hello, BTC world =)

By the way I have currently mined 0 BTC and purchased 0 BTC. Unfortunately no sweet ATI card to mine and no spare cash at present. I missed out on the $30+ peak... but also on investing in a mining rig that won't be profitable in a few weeks =)

Hello !
I've heard about Bitcoin months ago, but only a couple of days ago I read some more about it. And now I am MINING ! :D I have been mining for a pool for about 12 hours and only got 0.23 bitcoins. I am mining with a hd 6950 at 340Mhash/s. Is that the amount of bitcoins I should be getting with this kind of speed ?


Title: Re: Introduce yourself :)
Post by: Maasu on June 24, 2011, 02:32:39 PM
Hello,

I've recently become aware of bitcoins, not for the mining, but for the investment and trading purposes, I believe the hay days of mining are behind us, unless you caught the boat early and have used early profits to reinvest in huge mining set ups.

That being said there is still a future here in bit coins, either getting involved in their day to day useage or trading them and therefore I'm following the saga of this new currency with keen interest. Even if the project fails it will of been an entertaining and interesting venture.

yo peeps, just joined this site, but have been mining for about a month :)

I've got 6 rigs, each with 2 HD 5870 cards, giving me a total of about 6 Ghash/s

Amazingly, I managed to pay off my gear, thanks mostly to NMC mining/price hike the other week and a good bit of luck with speculation of BTC/NMC/$. Will we see that again ?  Would be nice :)

I'm back to mining BTC for now, but keeping a close watch on the NMC side :)

Well then, I'm deebug, err that's about it

I registered because I wanted to reply to the MtGox poll that is currently active. I could vote but I couldn't reply.
It's a bit of a dissapointment because I thought I could contribute to the MtGox post, but I also understand why this restriction is in effect.

Just before the MtGox meltdown I was making a .NET application that would monitor exchange rates with an easy conversion rate between currencies including a detailed calculation of trading costs (depending on what services you used) etc... For a moment I thought I brought MtGox down, but soon I realized that was a silly thought :P

I also have a mining rig in construction, waiting for some rare gfx cards, meanwhile pressing all the juice out of my only HD6990 card and at a decent rate.

I guess I'll try to contribute to this forum and see where it goes from there.

So yeah. My introduction *waves*

Oh yeah, I'm not a native English speaker, so... sorry in advance

After almost three days and and 21 payouts, pooled mining with bitcoinplus has made me richer by 0.00082194 BTC!

Ooh... Bitty!

 :D


Is that like the equivalent of less than a penny?

Hello fellow Bitcoinians!

This is probably the longest introductory post so feel free to skip most of it.  No one seems to realize that I exist, hence my nickname.  I am soon to begin my university studies as an engineering major.  I plan to offer my service as a python developer (go snake!) as well as my CPU/GPU for 3D rendering.

I first became aware of the Bitcoin project last year; however, at that time my computer was terrible so I soon forgot about it.  A few weeks ago, I heard it mentioned online and I decided to check it out.  I am currently solo mining with three computers (two laptops and one desktop) and am achieving a whooping hashrate of 35 mhash/s, 25 of which come from my laptop GPU (will enter into a pool after a week if I am not lucky).

Feel free to call me Tod if you like (not my actual name by the way).
One down, four to go.

I am Tony F of the CottonFog Farm. I support bitcoin because I am thoroughly awake to the fact that my freedom has been trampled by outside forces that benefit greatly from having a monopoly on a debt based currency. I want to own some bitcoin. I currently have silver bullion and livestock that I will sell for bitcoin. Face to face in central florida or silver via mail. I have spent all weekend learning about bitcoin and I am certain that I would like to own some as well as mine for them. My computer is only producing 4.5/mhs using a gui CLminer. I want to buy a decent dedicated mining rig but only have silver bullion and dollars (mostly silver - i need the dollars to pay my bills) to spend at the moment. i looked into buying bitcoin via exchange but talk about a hassle. That is just sooooo much trouble. Id rather just buy a machine and let it run and let it pay for itself via pool mining. I have been mining for almost 24 hrs at the moment and have only earned 3/10 of a single penny at a price of $15/BTC. If I could average 2/ week I would be happy if the machine cost about $500.
I have been a contributing member of Economic Fundamentals google group for about 3 years and on youtube a bit longer. www.youtube.com/tonyfarese
I first heard about bitcoin from Max Keiser. Then i read a crappy article in Bloomberg Business Week. Then a youtube channel I subscribe to (DonHarrold) put out a video bad mouthing bitcoin yesterday. I get news from various sources so I do my own research. Don has been loosing credability lately. Either way, I do not agree with his views and I am here to do the things I mentioned above. If anyone is in central florida (deland area) and can help me out w/ a mining rig or wants to buy siver w/ bitcoin or fresh Berkshire pork or live hogs or milk goats I would like some bitcoin. Fresh goat milk or free range chicken eggs. Thanks for reading my intro.

Infatuated with Bitcoin's ingenious, elegant design.
Love the lessons I've been learning about trading, trust, and community.
Brainstorming some possible ways to contribute; thinking of an escrow service that slowly trickles BTC at a set rate from one account to another, to spread out risk in a low-trust ongoing-service relationship (let me know if that sounds interesting to you).

A new registered account has to have 50 posts before being able to post/reply to threads in other areas of the forum?

Seems awfully counter-intuitive seeing as I've been a member of other forums for years without even achieving that many posts. It sure seems like your trying to encourage spam posts such as:

Hi all,

I'm pretty new to bitcoins and my main focus is on mining! I'm not really out to make cash or anything I just like to tinker with computers, and mining looks like a fun way to do it  ;D

I'm currently mining on a single 5850 which I set up over the weekend (and have made 0.25 BTC so far, w00t). I overclokced it a bit and managed to get 310 MHash/sec pretty easily. From my brief readings it looks like significant performace gains can be got from underclocking your GPU. Not really sure why this is but hopefully some of you guys can help me out with that.

That's 235 Mh/s for $90 @ 108W, this is a good speed for my card (5770).

According to https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison (https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison) you should be able to achieve around 392 Mh/s with the proper settings on a 5850.

If you're running linux, check out AMDOverdriveCtrl project on sourceforge, it allows you to underclock and such.

Really wish I would have gotten into this earlier! I sold my 5870 for 314 on ebay and purchased a 6970 on newegg for 309(after rebates) I didn't plan on mining with the 6970 but was trying to cash in on bitcoin by selling the 5870 for much more than it's worth. Decided to give mining a try for a couple of days and now I'm hooked. Purchased a second 6970 and hoping I can make enough bitcoin to pay it off. Currently hashing at ~700 mh/s going to deepbit.

Hey, all! I've been lurking for a few days. Finally went to post, and spent the better part of 5 minutes trying to find the reply button! Finally got myself all sorted out, and I figured I better start posting in the 'noob' section and get it out of the way.

Sounds like a very interesting community, so far. I originally heard about Bitcoin a few years ago, was intrigued by it from a technical perspective, but I figured it would never fly. Recently I've been following the whole MtGox debacle, and I finding that the Bitcoin market is quite fascinating and already surprisingly well established.

It seems a lot of people feel that the recent events have tarnished the reputation of Bitcoins in general. On the contrary, it has definitely led me to research the currency more than I think I would have. I won't be opening an MtGox account anytime soon, but I am definitely going to get more involved in the Bitcoin market.

I'm also a software developer, so it's exciting to see all the 3rd-party code that has sprung up, and I'm excited to learn more about the ecosystem of websites and tools out there.

Anyways, that's my 0.02 BTC.

Sadly I think I've come back and switched to GPU hashing just at the point where I dont think I'll be any luckier generating a block :)

I would like to introduce myself... and get the 50 post limit so I can finally ask what I want
Something about me:

mining at 850 Mhash/second, excited about bitcoins... came here for some hardware modification advice

I am Tony F of the CottonFog Farm. I support bitcoin because I am thoroughly awake to the fact that my freedom has been trampled by outside forces that benefit greatly from having a monopoly on a debt based currency. I want to own some bitcoin. I currently have silver bullion and livestock that I will sell for bitcoin. Face to face in central florida or silver via mail. I have spent all weekend learning about bitcoin and I am certain that I would like to own some as well as mine for them. My computer is only producing 4.5/mhs using a gui CLminer. I want to buy a decent dedicated mining rig but only have silver bullion and dollars (mostly silver - i need the dollars to pay my bills) to spend at the moment. i looked into buying bitcoin via exchange but talk about a hassle. That is just sooooo much trouble. Id rather just buy a machine and let it run and let it pay for itself via pool mining. I have been mining for almost 24 hrs at the moment and have only earned 3/10 of a single penny at a price of $15/BTC. If I could average 2/ week I would be happy if the machine cost about $500.
I have been a contributing member of Economic Fundamentals google group for about 3 years and on youtube a bit longer. www.youtube.com/tonyfarese
I first heard about bitcoin from Max Keiser. Then i read a crappy article in Bloomberg Business Week. Then a youtube channel I subscribe to (DonHarrold) put out a video bad mouthing bitcoin yesterday. I get news from various sources so I do my own research. Don has been loosing credability lately. Either way, I do not agree with his views and I am here to do the things I mentioned above. If anyone is in central florida (deland area) and can help me out w/ a mining rig or wants to buy siver w/ bitcoin or fresh Berkshire pork or live hogs or milk goats I would like some bitcoin. Fresh goat milk or free range chicken eggs. Thanks for reading my intro.

You seem like you've done your "Homework" on Bitcoin compared to most Noobs...
Welcome, and +1 to You !

Hi,

I have been into computers for +15 years and started mining about a month ago.
currently have 2 x 5870's and 2 x 5830's for a total of 1,350 MHashes.
Have been viewing this forum for the past month, but signed up yesterday when i needed to post something.


I have created a new all in one difficulty adjusted BTC Mining Calculator. ;D
Give it a try here: www.kaptain.me/btc_calc.php (http://www.kaptain.me/btc_calc.php)

Hello everyone,

I am forever a student of finance and economics. Bitcoin came to my attention, I must confess, rather recently through a friend on another message board. Letting the currency float is the most interesting part of bitcoin's equation.

The reason I am joining the forum is I am interested in being part of the development of an effective contract system for buying and selling bitcoin currency in the future, be it contracts for five minutes from now or five months from now.

For now, I'll just learn as much as I can because bitcoin represents something historically significant imo.

Hey guys new to bitcoin. I am an esteemed member of many online marketing forums, and I am a successful internet marketer that has been self employed for over 4 years. I specialize in facebook marketing, and usually focus most of my time on it. I have just today decided to sell one of my fanpages with over 1,000,000 fans, and thought that I would try to gain rep here to be able to post in the proper section because I would accept significantly less than the page is worth in bitcoins because it is against facebook TOS to sell pages. Hope to add to the community!

Soldier deployed in Iraq mining for BitCoins (ok, so not really mining with a laptop, more like digging with a spoon)
Hope to do some light mining when I get home just for kicks and giggles

I do about half a million PPD (folding), maybe a tad less with the new points scale going down, so most of my crazy hardware goes to folding (cuz a dual hex SR2 OC'd to 3.6Ghz with 12GB of RAM would get diddly squat on this project , or my old octo-socket system lol), but this would be fun just to rack in some coins lol

Took me a minute to find out why I couldnt post anywhere lol, neat little system yall run here

so yea, hi!

Aloha from Hawaii... blew the dust off the inner geek in me that has been dormant for a while and slapped together a rig with 3x 6870 gpus.  Bitcoins.... Where have I been?????????  I didn't realize what bitcoins where until I was reading recently that lulzsec only takes donations via bitcoins.  Oh well, awesome concept.  Considering the state of the global economy and the fiat currencies that they back, methinks btc has huge upside potential.

Peace!

 I had almost forgotten how terribly difficult it is to compile some random words when introducing ones self to other random word generators.
After spending way too much time 'lurking' around here and finding my ever increasing frustration of not being able to join in on some of the more interesting conversations taking place here was too much to bear any longer I finally decided to hit that register button. Well, I'm a small town tech from nowheresville FL in the US. I've a wife, a young son, a few small cats and no fence.. What I lack in fancy degrees in such fields as 'global economics' and 'global opinions I made up but should convince the sway of a debate because I added an exclamatory twist to them', I more than make up for with curiousity.
 I look forward to participating more with this very intriquing community in the future.

Hello,

I am a new Bitcoin enthusiast from Portland, OR, US. I am in the computer services business and I will accept BTC for computer, network, and laser printer services and repairs in the Portland area. I work for a legitimate, liscensed and insured computer services company, so I can provide services on the side as an individual or I can operate as an agent of my company if the services are to be provided for a business that would prefer to use an established company with business insurance.

Even better, I will provide a discount of %20 off of my normal hourly or flat rate for anyone paying in BTC.

Anyone interested, please PM me here once I get whitelisted.

May the Bitcoin smile upon us all today! ;D

Hi

I am reasonable new to this whole bitcoin craze. But it looks like a system that can have a real future.
It just needs some time to get the bugs worked out.

Some problems that I think should be solved:

-Wallets should be encrypted by default. (you would only need to decrypt them when sending bitcoins.)
- Some kind of build-in escrow service into the protocol (else we need third parties again which is the same problem the current money system has)
- easier to use (copy and pasting bitcoin addresses is fine for us techies but not for my mother)

I am sure you can come up with some examples of yourself.

But I am sure these problems will be solved in the future.

Been reading through this intro thread for the first time and wanna say firstly - "I love ya's all!"  ;D

Never done an intro here so figured I should.

I only got into Bitcoin recently after reading about in on another forum. My curiosity was spiked immediately when I discovered this was not a centrally controlled currency and so got into reading all I could. The first article I read said something along the lines of - "this is how Bitcoin works, oh and you can mine for coins too if you like but thats only for the geeks.." and that immediately got my attention! Being a professional geek (employed full time in the IT field and have run my own computer business) I knew right there and then mining was going to be for me even though I had no clue how it worked ;D

Currently mining with 2 x 6950's but looking to expand in the near future. Have already made plans to move into larger accommodation to facilitate a few new rigs.

Good luck to you all and welcome aboard! I'm sure this is going to be one hell of a ride, as its proven to be already.

1. (Encrypted wallets) I totally agree.
2. I don't understand you: An escrow service means nothing else than having a 3rd party involved.
3. A system like DNS would be of use here: mapping names (domains, email addresses or anything) to the addresses (IPs, here: bitcoin addresses). But this would remove a lot of the anonymity of the current system and create a further target for hacking attacks (MITM attack forging a 'DNS entry').

"So, I have this idea for a great movie. It's about two gnomes who find a bracelet of power, and they have to take it to the Burning Steppes and cast it into the Cauldron. They form the Brotherhood of the Bracelet. Along the way they're trailed by a murloc named Gottom, who's obsessed with the bracelet, and nine bracelet bogeymen. It could be a three-parter, called 'Ruler of the Bracelet'. The first part would be called 'The Brotherhood of the Bracelet', followed by 'A Couple of Towers', with the climactic ending called 'Hey, the King's Back!'"

- World of Warcraft /silly command


Incidentally, the best way to make sure newbies aren't pissed off by not being able to post in other threads might be to better publicize that they have to post here first. I was wondering all over the boards wondering why I couldn't post until I ran across this section.

Hi Everyone,
I'm an iOS & Android Developer and a bitcoin aficionado. I'm just getting started with the basics, and don't expect to be mining anytime soon until I replace my crappy hardware, lol  ;D. So I'm diving in head first and I hope I learn and help others to learn this world-changing technology. Its definitely a whole new ballgame. Look forward to chatting with you guys!

Btw this thread has 1337 replies! Woot!  ;D

Actual Job: Sophisticated algorithmic trader focused primarily on domestic (US) equities. High frequency, high volume (millions of shares/day).

Been following bitcoin developments for the past few months. Haven't been trading it due to poor exchange software. If large-scale traders like myself are going to get seriously actively involved in the btc markets there needs to be much better exchange software. $500,000 per single trade isn't anything to me in the stock market (and do many many of those daily) but I don't trust the BTC exchanges at all to handle even 1/10th that right now. Been considering coding up some open source exchange software for btc based on my extensive experience with equity market exchanges. At very least probably will be coding up some public data feed software for use by the general public - BTC tickerplants/feeds/etc. to encourage algorithmic trading. The current software/interfaces for it offered by the BTC exchanges is a total joke and entirely pathetic.

Profession: Software Engineer

I've been mining for over a month now and I'm running ~1.4 GH/s (soon to be ~1.7). My system makeup is currently 6950 unlocked x2, a 5830 (soon to be 2), and a 5850.  Hodge podge I know. The 6950s are for my main system and the 5830s I managed to snag from newegg. The 5850 was a craigslist deal.

Wow Johnnvm that sounds impressive. I would be interested in new software for the community. What language would you be using? I'm def interested especially if its open source.

I think I've been on here a couple+ weeks now and after hours of reading forum threads (Diablo and Hashkill mostly) I find it odd that I see no mention of running either of these on #! (CrunchBang Linux).  It seems such an obvious choice for a dedicated cruncher of any type.  

I was actually well down the road of converting my Ubuntu and Xubuntu dedicated BOINC crunchers to #! when #3 son got me interested in mining.  So other than one hold out (because I'm too lazy to redo software raid, samba, dhcp3-server, apt-cacher and ntp functions) that still runs Xubuntu all my 'crunchers' now run #!.  They all run BOINC on the CPU cores/threads and Diablo on the GPU(s).  Amazingly easy to build bitminer functions into the OpenBox menu (start Diablo, start AMDOverdriveCtl, start my GPU activity script, setfans, etc. etc.).  It's a whole lot lighter than Ubuntu (actually using PinguyOS on my desktop for now), is a fast install, Debian based so no quantum leaps for relative noobs (like me) that are use to Ubuntu.

BTW, If anyone gives it a try... I've had no luck with the optional liquorx kernal and so don't select that in the first logon/post install script that runs (and lets u bypass openoffice and cups, yeah!).

Happy mining, Skip

I'm a computer technician by trade and a full time web developer/designer by night. Completely new to bitcoin and completely enthralled by the possibilities of a decentralized currency. Started a bank account this week simply to tie to Dwolla for the sole purpose of handling bitcoins. I really wish I would have become more vested in it when I first heard about it.

Hi, I'm Morten from Norway, really excited by this bitcoin thing, even though it's a bit of a hassle to buy any as a newbie living outside the US ;-)

Euro bank wire from a European bank is one of the easier routes for funding an account -- even for a Canadian...  :o



I don't know, I initiated a bank transfer to TradeHill last week, and still no money in my account... :-(

I do not know how much you care or not, but one of your affiliates had a forced window take me to Webring.org

If you want to get Bitcoin customers, I highly suggest having a visible Bitcoin logo somewhere on that front page.  I would argue a good time right now is to put things next to the Twitter, Facebook, other social sites (not just you, but all non e-commerce sites).  Seeing as how you are kind of e-commerce, you really should have that icon/logo in at least two spots.

I understand you would think "eh.. I want to take Bitcoin, but I do not want to support it".. but I would go the route of having that as a focal point for a couple of weeks or a month.  Have it in the site prominent, I almost guarantee if you give it a little bit of time, the right people who are into Bitcoin will take notice and support.  Good luck, you look amazing :)

Whole MTgox thing outrages me. My password didn't get hacked, but the hash and salt are floating around out there. Not cool. I hate spam, and want to personally tell everyone that sent me their tradehill link to go fuck themselves. <3

Any questions?

Hey all,

Friend introduced me to the concept of BitCoin and after reading through the forums a bit, decided to give it a try. I've got a pair of rigs hooked up to BTCGuild and Slush's pool. I may not be getting a huge return in coins but I'm having fun with the concept and looking to experiment more with it.

Hi, I'm CJP(*), and my personal mission is to develop an anonymous electronic POS payment system.

I initially rejected Bitcoin (about a year ago) because I didn't consider its pseudonymity good enough, but it turned out that the system designed by me had the same problem, and I now consider it inevitable in electronic payment systems. The work-around anonymizing service I invented for my own system also applies to Bitcoin, and I've seen it is already being offered for Bitcoin.

I believe the number of users is essential for the health of any payment system, and when I saw Bitcoin pop up in the semi-mainstream media, I knew I had to embrace this technology. So, here I am!

(*) No that's not how my parents named me, but who cares?

HI Ive been lurking here for a week now. I heard Bitcoins being mentioned on the radio and they sparked my interest.

I like the idea and I have a very good feeling about investing in them.

I do not like how hard it is to purchase them though.

I found someone on here willing to sell some for a CAD e-interact transfer, which is exactly what I want to do.

Unfortunately I can not PM him or respond to his thread because of these newbie rules....

Any help would be appreciated...

Thanks

Hi all. This is my #1 post in the forum.  I have learned about bitcoin about a week ago and found the whole concept of P2P currency fascinating.

I would be happy if people can donate small amounts so that i can get started. My address is 1DnDsZKNPL3VumSMCxxVPYjGt5Trkbchdz . Thanks in advance. :)
I have got 0.001 BTC from freebitcoin.appspot.com faucet. But that didnt help me much.

I'm getting into bitcoins for purely selfish reasons.

I'm hoping I can jump on this wagon early enough that maybe one day i can afford to retire and send my kids to college.

The way things are looking for me right now I don't see it happening.

Maybe this will be the ticket!

Sadly my eyes had been closed for such a long time I was even one of the oppresors im ashamed to say.

Well its not to late for me I recon so will do my part to help bitcoin in my own little way.

Started a company in blighty that might beable to help some of you hardcore miners ( PV installer, Just fitting 3.1kwp to my roof next month mahaha let the mining comence) once im stable I'm considering accepting payment in bitcoins for the smaller systems but anyway thats for another thread.

Well thats me and from my epic bad posting you prob guessed that im dyslexic as hell. DOnt like my spelling mistakes well soz I dont have the same kinda brain as you and so busy dont have time for spellcheckin.

Hey Guys,

I was introduced to bitcoin just recently - I am a graphic designer so I tought people would like to have stuff with bitcoin designs on it.
So I just started a website, where I'm selling T-Shirts and Mugs directly for bitcoins. You don't need to e-mail me or use skype etc to make a transaction, so it's really easy and fun, check it out:
http://www.bitdenari.com (http://www.bitdenari.com)

The site is new and I don't have too much up yet, but I'm open to suggestions and I can make custom products too if you contact me :)

Hello

Im very interested in Bitcoin from serveral persepctives.

I enjoy anything dealing with economics and and supply/demand and I am very interested to see how a limited currency (very limited when compared to other currencies) will play out over the long run.

I also like the idea behind the no central hub or controller of money. The fastest and easiest way to steal money from people is to drop the value of the money in their pockets.

Finally I  mine (if you can consider my 30mh mining lol) but will speculate a bit into the bitcoin market as well.

Secondly There just a great idea. Not having to use a bank to send currency is fantastic.

Thirdly Its Awesome

I have always been a tech fan and since the start of the crisis I have been fascinated with economics (well long long ago I thought about studying economics too but luckily I never did, else I would never have been able to understand economics), ever since then I have been following Peter Schiff because he was one of the few people to have predicted the crisis and the consequences.

A few weeks ago on a tech blog a read about the theft of someones bitcoin wallet but didn't really understand the bitcoin concept, then last week I heard the interview of one the the guys behind bitcoin with Peter Schiff and for the first time I had to disagree with him, I think he really doesn't grasp the technological concept behind bitcoin, well I don't understand the technical concepts either but I understand it works and nothing can make it stop working or tamper with the system.

I think bitcoin could be the biggest thing since the invention of money and could finally free us from fractional reserve banking

Too bad I didn't hear about this earlier though  :(

Join the club, though probably a good thing, stop a lot of the pointless trolls...

Actually, I want to say that this method of forcing new people into a separate colony is a bad idea. It is supposed to reduce "troll" behavior, but you won't find a definition of "troll" anywhere. You can go on the boards right now and see arguments, dramas, and controversies.  Participants will call each other "trolls" but what does that word mean? Sometimes one can tell that both parties believe what they are saying--they just differ in opinion--and I don't think labeling either one of them "a troll" is helpful. In other cases you can see a poster with a large amount of post experience criticizing the entire concept of bitcoin.  This person might just be "a troll" in that their only goal appears to be to start controversy, but they are not being quarantined here in the colony.

Again, I think that not only is this method not working to reduce "trolls", but it has the effect of turning away enthusiastic new supporters of bitcoin. All of the bitcoin community suffers from this, and I don't think this has been very well thought out by the administrators of this forum.

Hi, my name is Steve.  I learned about bitcoins a few days ago when I read someone's signature on a different forum.  it said he was working for BTC.  "what's BTC?" I asked myself, "and why don't I know about it if someone's using an initial to refer to it?  what could this place be?  think of something it may have done for that industry."

I googled it and found a post he made on these forums.  I'm mining now to donate some BTC to him and see how much I can make for myself.  I am using a year and a half old 5850 to mine w/ phoenix @ 260Mhash/s stock and upto 380MHash/s when overclocked (never going over 80C :D).

I don't think the fed should be ended, I seriously don't care.  I am very liberal/progressive/leftist and think Ron Paul is areally idealogical/extremist libertarian.  speaking of libertarians, I associate them more with wanting economic 'freedom' than social freedom.  I think it's 'cause if a social freedom is your most important voting priority you'd be labeled liberal and/or moderate or (if its something out of the ordinary like Ron Paul wanting to legalize cocain and heroin) an anarchist.

anyway, about me: I am a college student.  I live in California.  I enjoy running, playing guitar and vidya games.  I have dogs and birds.

(if a mod thinks I went on too much of a tangent in the third paragraph, I'll edit it out)

Title: Re: Introduce yourself :)
Post by: GlenBot on July 02, 2011, 05:27:03 AM
I learned of BitCoins about 3 weeks ago now... I should figure out the exact date since to me, it'll always be an important day in history: The Day I Found Out About BitCoin.

I am sooo 100% hooked on the whole concept.  Unfortunately I'm broke as a joke right now so can't afford any mining rigs.  I've told the smartest people I know and work with about BTC and they're going ALL IN on the idea too.  Of the first 3 people I told, one bought a $4k mining rig (still waiting on the backordered 6990s), the other bought $10k worth of average PCs and decent GPUs (5770, 5850s), and the other invested $1000 USD into buying BTC on the market.  Man, I so wish I had ANY savings right now... but the timing's a BIT off.  Ah well, maybe when the friends I've turned onto the concept become rich off their investment endeavors they'll remember who turned them onto it and reward me.

Anyways, I'm soo into this thing that I've already ordered a custom license tag for my vehicle.  " B I T C O I N ".  I have the actual "PHP DUDE" plate hanging on my wall, took it off my ride a couple years ago.  Once I get the BITCOIN tag in the mail (within 2-3 weeks supposedly), maybe I can post a couple pics of that and get taken off this crappy newb list.  I'm not a spammer.  I'm a die-hard BitCoin supporter.

Hi all,

I can't see how introducing can be helpful. I've started with bitcoin mining
too late (one year ago). CPU mining was steadily bringing 50BTC per day...
But only a month ago or so I've bought my main caliber Sapphire 6990 and a couple
of smaller cards. And now its less than 1BTC per day. (Ok, Ok, I am doing
namecoin mining too to bring back nostalgic feelings...)

If anybody start trustcoins, ecocoins, foolcoins, smartcoins, softcoins, hardcoins,
dnacoins, spacecoins, or whatever, please tell me earlier ;-)

As anyone tend to add here: if you find this post useful, please, consider donating to

I was originally introduced to bitcoins by teppy and his Dargons Tale casino http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=1392.0 while I was playing his other game ATITD.  I ended up winning around 200 bitcoins total from me purchasing 10 then promptly forgot about it until a few months ago on twitter Jason Calcanis was talking about it and I remembered I had it on one of my gaming machines.  Turns out I had left the client cpu mining and had actually found a block in that time frame.  Since then I have setup a couple of GPU mining rigs and have been lurking quietly on the forums.

Hello,

I'm new to the Forums and thought I would introduce myself.  I regularly trade on #bitcoin-otc and #bitcoin-pit as I}ruid and also use the various BTC exchanges.  I'm a fan of both cryptography and alternative currencies, so Bitcoin hit my radar pretty fast back in January 2009 when Satoshi released the Bitcoin whitepaper and initial version of the client software.

Thanks,

A duck walks into a bar. "bartender do you have any bread" says the duck. "No" replies the bar tender. "have you got any bread" repeats the duck. "no" says the bartender in a louder voice. "Got any bread" repeats the duck. "if you ask me again if I have any bread i will nail your beak to the bar" says the bartender with a smile. "got any nails" says the duck. "no" days the bartender with wide eyes. "got any bread" replies the duck.

I use Mt. Gox, Tradehill, and Bitcoin7.  I've tried some of the others but they are too low volume to be useful.  Out of those three, Tradehill is so far my favorite as it seems to not have the stability/security issues that Mt. Gox has and is higher volume than Bitcoin7.  I'm also looking forward to trying CampBX when it opens in a couple of days.

Hope this helps,

I ran a Minecraft Classic server (epicCreations.org Freebuild) until it was compromised a small time ago. I started fundraising for a new VPS just recently, and decided that this might be a good way to have others fundraise even if they don't have the resources or means to donate.

I've been involved with digital currencies in various forms since the late 1990s.  I'm suprised at how few people in that business I see here; maybe they've all changed forum names since the e-gold debacle and days at dgc.chat :)

Over the years I started many businesses geared towards inching acceptance of e-gold and other digital gold currencies into the mainstream, and took a sabbatical from the business during the great shakedown of '07.  I am hoping to get involved in Bitcoin-related commerce projects, particularly plug-n-play adaptations for WordPress, FB pages and other common media.

I think you're right about this. Most ppl here are in college age or slightly above. I think thats because bitcoin started as a hacker currency and most people interested into these topics are in students of various nature scientific subjects.

Especially that I'm from good old europe where the electricity costs way to much for me. I pay about 0,225 Eur/KWh (thats about 0,33 $/KWh!). Perhaps i should buy an old water mill and build a hydropower-station from it  ;) Would be good for GPU cooling too ;)

Hello, my name is mateo, I've studied economy for a few years and have recently being looking into bitcoins. I've being mining for the last month and analyzing the statistics and everything is looking good from here :)

One thing I don't like is the amount of information based on purely speculation, so I've registered to have a say from now and then on a few topics.

I live on a third world country, where the currency actually crashes once every few years. History and statistics can predict these crashes. Whereas regarding btc, and looking to its price going up and down from the moment it was created, I think it is safe to say the price tends to go up. Crashes are not a common thing and the last one was not even based on a real event, just someone trying to steal lots of money. History shows a tendency of going up. Usually markets and currencies fluctuate according to its history.

Time will tell if I'm right or wrong. I really don't care much to go into a deep discussion on this matter, and less on my presentation post on this subforum.

I'm also a mobile software dev. I'm about to launch an app in the android market and want to be sure no one can launch the same on iOS before I do, or at least with the same name, graphics, etc. I'm looking for some legal guidance on international apps rights, so if anyone with experience on this subject is willing to share his knowledge with me, please drop me a pm. Being working on this project since december and haven't seen a buck yet, also invested on btcs, so I'm kind of poor, don't expect to receive anything from this, except a huge "THANKS  ;D".


cheers

Hi,
I'm new to bitcoin ;D - currently I'm trying to find a way to mine cost-effective, but I guess I'm a bit too late for that. Especially that I'm from good old europe where the electricity costs way to much for me. I pay about 0,225 Eur/KWh (thats about 0,33 $/KWh!). Perhaps i should buy an old water mill and build a hydropower-station from it  ;) Would be good for GPU cooling too ;)



Yeah it sucks to live in europe :P, i thought only the netherlands had such rediculious taxes on electricity. but the same applies to rest of europe??
anyway you can really save a buck if you care about every watt your rigs consume. bought a KW meter.m brought consumption down from 560 to 490 Watts. really great to see how much your tweaks save

Hello, I'm MarkusW and very interested in bitcoin.  I have to admit, it is the geeky aspect of bitcoin that has me interested.  Using cryptography for currency sounds very awesome.  And it is the best route for a global currency (definitely easier to ship than gold).

Yeah, I came in late too.
I just found out about Bitcoins about a month ago myself.
Finally found some graphic cards that weren't overpriced and am trying to get this rig started now that people are saying it's not profitable any more.
That won't deter me of course.

Hi, lurker here (it's what I'm good at)

I've been lurking for a couple of weeks.  Guess I'd better de-cloak if I ever want to play with the big boys and girls.

I just got a rig set up with two 5770s, each running at about 190 MH/s with the stock clock configuration. I'm running on Ubuntu 11.04 (64 bit) using the phoenix miner and Reikoku's excellent Autominer scripts (http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=19861.msg247956;topicseen#msg247956 (http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=19861.msg247956;topicseen#msg247956)) scripts.  And now the coins are trickling in.

I'm now looking into tweaking the clocks.

Hi, new member here.

Looking to sell some items for bitcoins.  I have found some other listing sites, but thought I should hit up this board as well.

I have two Samsung Chromebooks (still sealed in the box), that come with 2 years of free Verizon 3G service.  And of course WiFi also.

When I get past the newbie limit I will make a proper post in the marketplace forum.

Hello everyone!

I've only recently discovered this amazing phenomena and cant stop reading as much as I can.

My girlfriend tells me that I've probably gotten someone else :-) and that I spend during the weekend almost 20 hours in front of the computer.

Naaah!

It can't be!

Little did she know that I was reading like crazy so I can configure the best price/performance ratio mining rig possible and placing orders to build 2.

So, imagine her surprise when I brought in on Monday the truck load of parts and declared that I am going to build data-crunching gear and going to make some money with it!

2 hrs later and I had the 2 quad-5780 machines working mildly overclocked (1.53 Gh/s each) as part of a pool that pays instantly.

Just now, I've got 2.5 shiny new BTC's in my Bitcoin (well, little bit more, but let's keep the anonymous nature of the BTC, right?)

Sweet!

Take care all!

When do you calculate that your rigs will pay for themselves and start making a profit (taking the power bill into account)?

Hmmm...I am too noob at this stage and my pea brain is not capable of doing such complex calculations - I am an engineer by trade, not an accountant.

I did use idle money to buy the components for those rigs though, so I am not looking to do this as an investment - just a new toy to play with and learn - and if I manage to make a BTC or two in the process - hey, it's even better!

Not wanting to boast, but I am already onto my next project - a quad 6990 rig with a single 1600W PSU - I have not seen anyone so far claiming to have done it - but my friendly local computer supplier says that she is going to give me a good discount on the 6990 stock that is not moving quickly, why would I say no to that?

take care all

Greetings Fellow Bitcoiners,

While I have been involved in the Bitcoin economy for a while now, I have just gotten around to registering with the community. Since I did so, I thought now would be as good a time as any to introduce myself, so here I am.

I'm an American anarcho-capitalist, social and political activist, and sometimes writer who actively runs three different (and successful) agorist businesses. I believe strongly in the principles of liberty and believe each man has an unalienable right to keep what he earns or share it with others only as he pleases. I do not and have never believed that we should petition our governments for anything as we are not their serfs and should never act as though we are. We are free men and women and we should act like it in every way.

I'm looking forward to meeting everyone. If you're an agorist and looking for make new business connections or if you're just looking for new friends, feel free to message me.

Laissez-faire,
Guy Fawkes

Hello everyone, I first found out about Bitcoin in April 2010, mined 50 coins, and have just discovered the community again in the last month since I started hearing about it from different news sources, even the mainstream media! :o

Anyway, I am a web developer and have started day trading on the exchanges. The big problem I see with Bitcoin in the long-term of course is that there simply isn't much you can buy with them yet, and I think that is why recently there's been a run-up of $20 USD/1 BTC down to $12. Happy trading all and look out for the bubbles :)

BitCoin is an application that allows you to manage your bitcoins, it creates an wallet where to keep your coins and allows you to send/receive coins from others.
GuiMiner is a mining tool.
So they are 2 separate things. You can "combine" them (meaning that you wanna do solo-mining) but i would not recommend it.

Does Ufasoft miner need SDK for working with GPUs?
Does Ufasoft miner automaticly use GPU mining if SDK are installed and there is GPU avaiable?

Hi Alisa,
As far as I can see you have only one problem:
0 MHash/s     Error 80072EFD:  A connection with the server could not be established
But to find a solution the error code is not enough. It seems that someone (i suppose some miner) can't connect so a server. But you need to supply much more informations (who is reporting the error, what kind(topology) of network you use ... who/were is the server you try to connect etc.

I am setting up my private mining server so I don't depend on public mining services. I tried Deepbit but was DDoSed so I switched to BTC Guild and then he got DDoSed so now I decided to build my own mining pool.

What would be server requirements to setup mining pool that could handle up to 100 GH/s, 200 GH/s and 300 GH/s?
Is there any hosting company you ppl recommend?
What does cause most stress to server when doing pool mining?
Do you guys have any tips for setting up a pool mine?
What is currently best miner for CPU mining?
What is currently best miner for GPU mining?
Why is SDK needed for GPU mining?
Does Ufasoft miner need SDK for working with GPUs?
Does Ufasoft miner automaticly use GPU mining if SDK are installed and there is GPU avaiable?
How does Ufasoft miner work actually with GPU mining?

Regards,
Alisa

This are not problems ... this are information requests ... are you working in a R&D department or in a DR (Delegate Research) department ?

I will try to help you if you come with some real problems ... but i will not do research for you ... sorry.

Ciao.

Hi my name is Cherisse and I'm just learning about Bitcoin.

I'm hearing so much confusing information about Bitcoin but it sounds really interesting.

Is it true that people are having problems with their accounts at Mt Gox? I want to also sign up for a bitcoin wallet but am not sure exactly where to go.

Need some quick pointers.

Thank you so much!!

Yes, actually any help that you could offer would really help
I have BitCoin and GUIMiner but I am confused as to how to get them to function. :/


Hi,
Where is a good site to go get some bitcoin or free bitcoin?

I've saw that site http://www.Forbitcoin.com yesterday which is like Fiverr but instead of getting gigs for $5- they pay people in bitcoin... pretty cool!!

I'm wanting to also get a bitcoin wallet so when I get some bitcoin I can accept it.

Thanks.

Cherisse  :)

When you install the BitCoin client from here: http://www.bitcoin.org/ you will get an wallet and an address where other people can to send coins to (and the coins will be stored in your wallet)
I recommend to read the wiki/help (the link is present to the same site) to learn how to protect your wallet and how to use the BitCoin client application.

Hello all;

I have successfully established guiminer and connected to slush's pool. But I also want to use my cpu in job with Ufasoft cpu miner. I have checked thread but there is no explanation about how to set it up running on windows 7. Guess, I run it on cmd with codes.

Any help appreciated.

Actually this is the way it functions (eventually make a .cmd or .bat file and put the execution command there so you can launch it with a double-click)
Check if GUIMiner has support for Ufasoft CPU Miner if you really need a graphical interface!

Hi everyone, I'm Matt. I'm a teacher, a podcaster, and a tech-enthusiast.

I'm new to BTC. I heard about it on TWiT and found it's exactly the sort of thing I'm into. I'm running 3 low-efficiency part-time miners on Slush's pool, more as a curiosity than to earn money (because at 4Mhash/s they don't earn more than a few Satoshis). Waiting on Dowalla so I can try my hand at the market.

Hello.  Nice to meet you all...

I'm new here.  Just learned of bitcoin a couple days ago on Youtube.  I watched the video on how bitcoin forgoes banks and traditional currency and whatnot, and was intrigued.

Immediately, I went to learning about it and giving a (pathetically weak) attempt at mining with my CPU as my graphics processor does not seem to want to do anything correctly.  (I am not looking for help, really...  I am used to my GPU sucking all the way around.  Wasn't there a time when NVidia was a respected brand??)

I look forward to participating in the forums as much as I can... but don't see myself answering questions right off.  I have a knack for computers, and am not "computer illiterate," but am a welder by trade... doesn't much assist in the production, distribution, or anything else contributing to bitcoins.

I have already been to the bitcoin faucet and got my first 0.001 BC, and have signed up with what apparently used to be called Slush's pool and earned myself an additional .002 in the last two days, so am starting out heavy at .003.

3.0 Mhash/s isn't really good, is it?  :'(

Anyways, I should have split this up to several posts to get to my 50.  Take care, look forward to meeting you all (or some), and will see you around the MB's!

Hello! I like this forum a lot.

One question / observation:

Why is it so hard to get involved with Bitcoin? It seems this way in general--you have to put in a lot of time and effort just to get going. That goes for funding accounts at the exchanges, mining, trading on #bitcoin-otc, participating in this forum, etc. You have to really want to participate.

I like puzzles, strategy and RPGs (not the gun  :P), and cats. I like programming a little, but I never really finish something I start; maybe if I had someone to work with.... I know a bit about C and C++, but never really learned enough of the languages to write anything substantial. Python is where it's at, but most of what I've written in Python could be considered a toy by above-average programmers.

I'm shy, don't talk much. Don't really have much to talk about. I write a lot, don't ask why. Sometimes I talk or write too much. I guess now would be a good opportunity to stop.  :D

Sounds like you may need to do some tweaking with temps, voltages, flags or where your crunchers are pointing at. Have you looked through the mining threads to see if anyone else is using the same cards or similar setup as you are?

I've been following bitcoin for about 1 month.  Frankly I am pessimistic about the value in the shortterm, but cautiously optimistic about the long term future.  We just need some good ideas and some good developers.

Hello. new here

been Mining using the phoenix backend for GUIMiner with
VECTORS BFI_INT FASTLOOP=false AGGRESSION=5 -k phatk WORKSIZE=256
flag

Core clock @ 1ghz
memory clock @ 300mhz
System voltage at 1.162 (I try to put it up to 1.164 in Saphire TRIXX but for some reason it autochanges it. Oh well)
With no other applications running, I seem to jump between 230MHashes/sec up to 247
Pretty satisfied. When I first started I was using poclbm and getting 200Mhashes/sec

Hi everyone, I am new to Bitcoin, only have one PC for mining (~292MH/s) and hope that it's worth it. If it is, I'll buy more video cards (and used PCs). Too bad there are no AGP and/or PCI-X cards good for mining.

How many posts until I become a normal member?

Also, does the wallet.dat file change? That is, if I copy it to a MO disk, how often should I update the backup?

Hey there lowlevel. How is your mining going? If I may ask, what type of mining are you doing? CPU OR GPU?
xJared

Hey xJared,

I'm mostly GPU mining. I've got 2 ATI 5830 cards going, and some Xeon CPU's... pushing about 600 Mhashes total with only very minor over clocking on the two cards.  Using phoenix 1.48 on Slush's pool...  lots of tweaking to do over the weekend! How about you?

Not in a long shot. First of, don't use nVidia but ATI(AMD) graphic cards. You will pay more for the electricity (depending where you live, it's almost true for any country) than you will earn bitcoins.

Go ahead and start mining with that... get into one of the pools, figure out how it all works now before you go out and spend some real money on   some ATI 5830's or whatever you can find that works well and you're comfortable paying for.

Use this chart to help you pick the best card for you  https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison

And yeah.. you're not going to want to bother with CPU mining or nvidia mining longterm.. but nothing wrong with trying it out for a couple hours to get the hang of how everything works.

Hi I am Evil Bob! You can call me Evil Bob, Evil, or Bob, My wife calls me an A$$ and I take it to be a compliment sort of a synonym to Evil. You guys don't get that privilege though.

As for Bitcoining I love the Mining! I am a systems admin so I use some lab machines to mine, Also working on a grant to get a GPU based supercomputer you better believe it will be benchmarked in Mh/s. That being said I don't care so much about the economy or making money, I just want to process math really fast and have massive amounts of uptime. Hardware tweaking, rigging, and modification are my passions.

Honestly I thought I was the Batman, Glad I can stop now as there are plenty of others.

Btw I can't spell and after 4 years of college grammar still eludes me. If it bothers you try not to read my posts :)

because they want to see that your active.  if a scammer can get 100 bitcoins for spending .000001 it was totally worth it.

Most definetly a scam!! Don't ever download anything sent to you in an email unless you were expecting an email for something you bought. Even then check links, etc.

To add, the only safe place to download the bitcoin client is from the links at bitcoin.org . Mining software can be found here on the forums and even anything you download from here on the forum you should be sure that it is from a trusted source. If you are not sure, don't download it!

Yes. Apparently there is a 0.01 transaction fee.  Plus, you can only payout in units of 0.01, meaning everything starting at the 3rd place after the "." remains a part of BCP.  Not worth it, if you ask me!

better using freebitcoins

Cards I got mining are

HD4850 @ 70MHash/s (It runs stock volts but 95C, crazy ass card.)
HD6970 @ 330MHash/s (wifes card and I'm lucky she's letting me use it, so I'm not tweeking it too much)

And a couple HD5830's to game on and retire the HD4850 cooler garage.

I read in the news about the MTGOX hacking, was curious about Bitcoin after that, and now... here I am.

Hello all, I just started up mining not to long ago. i had a pretty good gaming system with 5850 in crossfire that i got about 2 years ago right when they came out. stumbled into bitcoins and just started mining on them for fun. started out with running them at stock at about 315 mh/s each. so 630 mh/s was getting around half a bitcoin a day back at the start of june. since then after some research and overclocking im able to get a 5850 stable at around 370 to 380 mh/s. i also built some custum rigs and running them 24/7 using more 5870 and 5850, i'm currently running about 4.7 to 5 ghz. as for temps im getting any where from 65 to 76 on a normal day depending on the card. on hot days i see as high has 82. i will be documenting my stuff on mining on youtube with tutorials on setting up stable mining rigs, over clock and pretty much just share all my experience that i have gain over the weeks of playing around with bitcoin.

www.youtube.com/l2Bitcoin/ is the ch where ill be posting all the videos.

Hi everybody!

My name is Karsten, I am from fair Germany, and I go by the nick of kaosbit because I could not think of anything sensible.

I checked out bitcoins when a friend mentioned it to me, reading the whitepaper and some technical posts. Looks like an interesting bit of technology, pardon the pun, so I decided to get involved. I have no idea what I might actually use the BTC for once I get some... but then, I'm in for the fun and not for the money. We'll see.

In any case, I believe the whole topic may be good for a little software project or two, though I'm not sure when/if I ever might find the spare time. You know how it is with a full day job. But then, this gives my computer more idle time for mining!

Not sure what you guys usually have in terms of hardware; my platform probably is a tad exotic, being a Mac Pro 2 x 2.4 Quad Xeon with an ATI Radeon HD 5870. Apparently the GPU is good for mining, but the Apple OpenCL implementation seems to have its quirks. Diablo Miner gives me up to 211 mhashes, not too shabby, but below posted benchmark values. Oh well, I'll find some nice little pool to support.

Cheers,
kaosbit

Hi folks!

I started mining three weeks ago. I was going to post pictures and a description of my rig to the “Mining > Hardware > Pictures of your mining rigs!”-Thread, but it looks like I'll be stuck here for a while...  :)

Just discovered bitcoin, a bit obsessed!  

but I've already learned: mining isn't for me.  My slow little laptop can't do much, and I can't get any of those mining programs to work for me.  BCP was fun for a minute...till I learned about the hidden fees!

Is that BitcoinPlus?
What fees are they taking?

Yes. Apparently there is a 0.01 transaction fee.  Plus, you can only payout in units of 0.01, meaning everything starting at the 3rd place after the "." remains a part of BCP.  Not worth it, if you ask me!

better using freebitcoins

http://www.freebitcoins.org/6509 (http://www.freebitcoins.org/6509)

I was running my CPUs on that while I was trying to figure out how to get my GPUs mining.  Would take forever to accumulate one bitcoin.
I have 0.025xxxxx there.  I think I'll CPU-mine enough to get it to 0.03BTC and then cash out.

Hello everybody :)

I'm from Finland and I got interested in Bitcoin for various reasons. I'm affiliated with the Zeitgeist Movement so I'm clearly interested in anything different from the establishment.

I'm also a semi-professional poker player looking to find other ways besides poker to stay away from the rat race so whatever extra income I get from this is appreciated.

Started with investing some money in hardware, currently my mining capacity is a little bit over 2 ghash. I have also bought some coins directly as an investment.

In the future I hope to be able to actually spend them as well, when goods and services that I need become available for coins. I'm also planning to startup some services of my own in the near future. The Finnish people seem to be fairly interested in Bitcoin so it's a good market out here for anything Bitcoin-related.

Title: Re: Introduce yourself :)
Post by: streblo on July 09, 2011, 10:29:44 PM
Here's my answer:

Due to a mass of trolling, only established posters are able to post in non-newbie sections. You are considered "established" if you have spent 4 hours online and have made 5 posts.

If you have really good posts, you can post a request for preemptive whitelisting in the appropriate topic (http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=15911.0).

Also:
- You must have made one post in order to send PMs.
- You need 10 posts to put a link in your signature.
- You need 50 posts to put an image in your signature.

Note that it may take up to 10 minutes for your PM or posting permissions to be granted.

I had originally ordered 7x 6950's and the 5830 to spread across 4 rigs, unfortunately one of my psu's blew and fried both the motherboard and the two 6950's, so I ended up RMA'ing the entire rig.

Currently pulling 2.15ghash/s and am looking to invest in some pci-e 1x extenders and some new cards/extra psu's.

Ok first,what's an ATI card? Never heard of one lol
Second,exchange service,you mean like MT Gox or Tradehill etc? Iv'e already registered with a couple but like i said they all only seem to accept wire transfers,cash in post,cheques etc etc.I was hoping to just make a straightforward transfer to someone in the UK (where i am) cos as far as i know i can do that online through my bank now,failing that paypal. Otherwise it's wait till Monday when the bank's open to make a wire transfer (although Britcoin.com you can just make a cash deposit at the bank)
 Their presently at around $14 yeah? So i was only wanting to spend $100 to $200 max for my first foray.
Cheers

 Hi David from Canada here trying out this Bitcoin thing.

 I bought one Bitcoin today on an exchange at 14.20US$ and sent it to my miner app, the default application I downloaded from Bitcoin.org is that app called the miner? Lots to learn I guess.

 Anyway I'm reading through the forum trying to find out the basics of sending and receiving since I'm having trouble doing a test send from my desktop miner app to my Android phone wallet app.

 And after all that my top priority is to learn how to backup my Bitcoins/wallet data (to actually get an eWallet for Linux) and most of all encrypt all that.

 As I said lots to learn.

Hi.

I've been reading the forum for a while now, and figured it was time to set signed up.

I have very modest hardware to work with, so I'm not getting Bitcoin rich by mining (and I do not expect that I will). Mining is fun (and fun to watch). It's also an excuse to tweak and upgrade my machines to see what I can get out of them. ;D

I'm as interested in the social and economic (as well as clandestine) uses of Bitcoins. Not sure where it's all headed, but it's interesting to be along for the ride.

I've been reading the forum for about two months now.  It's been a HUGE resource, solving 99% of my mining related problems.  I'm so very thankful that it's available.

I mine with 2 rigs.  Each one has 3 5970s in it, and at this point I'm working out my highest stable overclocks on stock volts.  One of my cards was quite lucky, and I'm able to run 880 MHz on each core on stock volts.

Interesting concept these bitcoins. I just now learned about them and count me in. There is obviously quite a bit to learn about how to use them and the whole socioeconomic impact they could have (with any luck at all). Anyway, very exciting and I'm off to read and learn as much as I can as fast as I can. Oh and thank all of you and whoever created this forum. There are a lot of really smart people on here answering a lot of really smart and not-so-smart questions from us newbies.

Using bitcoins and mining them are different things. It is not that complicated really, if you think of bitcoins as the actual gold coins from the logo.

In oder to keep coins, you first need a wallet. You can even have more than one (Bitcoin PC app, Android client).
Now you need some coins to put into your brand new wallet. The easiest way to get some is to go to a marketplace (MtGox &co) and trade them for other stuff (US$ in this case).
Once you got some coins in your wallet, you can spend them on stuff you like, or donate them to helpful people *nudge nudge*

If you don't have stuff to trade for coins, you can also get some by doing hard mining work. But unlike in the "16 ton" song, it is actually fun!

In order to start mining, you first need to get a mining tool that suits you (one of the many miner apps).
The you can saddle your mule (no analogy, sorry) and go rinding out as a lone prospector, trying to dig up some gold (a valid block, worth 50 BTC).
However, since the gold has become scarce over time and there are lots of miners out there, your chances of finding the mother lode on your own are slim.

Instead, you can join a bunch of other friendly miners (a pool) and help them at their mine (deepbit.net &co).
Once you or your mining buddies actually manage to find some gold (the valid block), everybody gets a fair share.
This way you get less gold at once, but you get it at a steady rate. Much better for the impatient.

Now it's time to join the discussion and hopefully give a little back. I don't know if I'll make any money at this, but it has at least been fun and educational so far!

Could someone please be so kind to contact zabitcoin.co.ca administrator dcconsulting Thread: http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=17830.0
and ask to unban me (viperzero) in zabitcoin.co.za pool. Tried forget password but it is not working on the site either.

Just waiting PSU to arrive to finalize little rig which goes after bitcoinmining to distributed computing project: 4 x5850 & target to get it running about 730 W & 1.4 Gh

Happy mining and thankyou all for valuable info in these forums.

Been great fun and havent had to put a single cent into my upgrades! used what i started with and when i had enough i reinvested in some bigger hardware. first the 6870, then sold the 6850 and topped up funds with BTCs to get a 6950! loving it!

I've joined the forum as a means to learn more about Bitcoin and thereafter to study online stock trading.  So any comparisons between the two practices are welcome.


I really enjoy trading stocks, so doing business with bitcoin is a plus for me. I think of BTCs as forex/stocks, so it's pretty exciting. :D

Judging from the different exchange sites out there, i'm sure there are other traders/investors in here. How many of you normally trade and how long you been trading or investing in stocks or forex?

4th year (in Scotland we do 4 years for an honours degree if '4th' seems odd to you :P) computing science student here.

Heard about and started getting interested in bitcoin a few weeks ago. Always interested in internet culture and it's 'autonomy' from the outside world - something bitcoin seems to be able to aid. But it seems bitcoin might be able to spread  into the outside world too, in wider use - that'd be really interesting. I guess the challenge is to come up with ways to allow people who aren't computer orientated to use bitcoin - possibly with hardware devices (like cards or something.) Looking forward to reading the economics and 'politics and society' sections - and maybe posting too if i'm not too lazy :P.

Also interested in developing bitcoin based services / apps - although the low level cryptography stuff is way over my head at the moment. I recently made an android 'remote control' app for the bitcoin running in daemon mode, which I guess I'd be interested in posting about in the 'project development section' when I'm not a newbie. [ https://market.android.com/details?id=Happy0.BitCoinClient&feature=search_result ]. Wonder what else I could make that might be useful...

Been idling in the bitcoin-dev and bitcoin IRC channels - I'm really impressed how busy, vibrant and interesting they are. Many channels I sit in go for days without any discussion at all.

l8rz! :P

Hi, I'm a speculator. I ate my hat last month in the crash - still hanging on though.  ;D Despite what a lot of people think, though, we do care about bitcoin as a currency itself - I play the game mostly to increase the number of coins I have, given I never had the equipment to even think about mining.

Hi,

my name is Christian from Munich, Germany. I am interested in that Bitcoin thing from a technological perspective mainly.

Currently I find the official Bitcoin client lacking (very unintuitive user interface, long setup time and initial download).

Also I am very interested in the applied crypto algorithms in this project. Would be interested in working on a GPU accelerated vanity bitcoin address generator, for a start.

Hi,

My name is Boris Rarden, I'm the maker of Online-TipJar.com site, which is a bitcoin-based donation/tipping service, centered around free software. Recently, my site got linked by FSF!

I'm also a supporter of the Objectivism philosophy, which promotes the gold standard, and hence bitcoin.

I believe that the next thing for bitcoin is a community of people that can provide the basic necessities directly for bitcoin (without conversion), such as food and rent.

Okay, post number 3.

I'm running an ATI Radeon HD 5870 on a brand new MacPro, and only getting around 2.0 MHashes/Sec using DiabloMiner.  The Hardware page says I should get twice that.

I tried using POCLBM-MOD, and it was even slower.

I tried using the -v switch on POCLBM, and it failed.

Is there some Mac driver issue that prevents me from using Vectors on my 5870 on a Mac?

2MH/s out of a 5870 you should be getting a whole lot more than that, more like 350MH/s are you sure you havent picked the cpu as your device rather than the card? id tell you the line but im not familiar with macs or diablominer

Hey guys, I have a quick question. I started mining a little less than a month ago with my 6950 and sadly when I first started I didn't run it nearly as much as I should have. The calculator told me I could make around 60 bucks a week and now it's down to 20. My main card is a 6950 however I have an old GTS 450 I do not use anymore sitting around. Would it be worth it to throw this into my computer to try and get some extra mh/s and bitcoins or is it not worth it for power/heat vs bitcoin payoff? Thanks.

Not worth the extra 45-50Mh/s verse the extra power usage, heat and very potential headache of getting both Nividia and Ati drivers to play along nicely.

I generally refer people to this site, http://bitminer.info/ which gives some pretty acceptable, if not slightly pessimistic numbers on power usage vs profit, and gives dollar per day, and payoff of investment times. Looking at it we can see that a GTS 450

CardGTS450   MH/s 45   BTC Per day ฿0.03   Current Value $0.46   Watts used106   Profit after cost at .15c per Kilowatt hour. $0.08    GPU Cost$124.69    Days it would take to pay off the card1558.62

So if you never had to pay for power, it would make $0.46 per day, or $14 per month. So you tell me if its worth it for you? Personally I wouldn't bother, but I'm doing this more professionally than as a hobby, so I'm looking for the best MH/J with only some consideration for cost of GPU.

I got the decimal wrong... it gets 209 MHashes per second, but that's still shy of 350-400.

I tried to use Phoenix, but it failed.

Hello, I'm Johnny Caps
Interesting concept these bitcoins. I just now learned about them and count me in. There is obviously quite a bit to learn about how to use them and the whole socioeconomic impact they could have (with any luck at all). Anyway, very exciting and I'm off to read and learn as much as I can as fast as I can. Oh and thank all of you and whoever created this forum. There are a lot of really smart people on here answering a lot of really smart and not-so-smart questions from us newbies.
As soon as I figure out how to I want to accept bitcoins on my website. I wonder if I can accept bitcoins on ebay? I'll look into it. How cool would that be?

Did you know you can EDIT your posts to avoid multiple back-back posting?  It's fairly easy once you do it the first time. :p

Newbie here. This is my 1st post, and I just learned of the existance of BitCoins 2 days ago.  I make enough cash from a real-world job to invest in hardware, and I am eager, but I am reading mixed opinions whether it's even worth it or not.  Plus, I want to try and get it to work on my existing hardware before buying anything.  I've already opened a BitCoin wallet, registered on Slush's pool, and tried to use GUIMiner on Slush's Pool.  But, my GUIMiner just sitts there and says "starting..." without actually doing anything. It did this for 16 hours.  Yes my Slush login info was entered, yes it works on their website. Hopefully an advanced or intermediate user can tell me why my miner won't mine...

Not sure about Slushs Pool specifically, but in other pools you also need to configure a "worker access" for you miner program, which is usually different from your pool account. You use the pool login to manage your intermediary BTC account and such, while the miner uses the worker access to request work and submit solved hashes.

Yeah, I set up a worker through slush, and entered the appropriate login info & P-word in GUIMiner, but I get the same thing: "connecting..." is up there for hours.  I don't know what's up. Although, this may be the problem: today, trying to point a browser at the slush site, it either doesn't load, or loads DRAMATICALLY slow. IDK, it's getting frustrating though. I guess they were right when they said "mining ain't easy" I can't even get it to work at ALL, LOL

Hi.. I'm Rudementry. Been on the internet for a long time now, always interested in technology type stuff. A friend of mine linked Bitcoins to me a few months ago, and I was excited. I was planning on building a really nice desktop over the summer and since I heard about Bitcoins, choosing AMD over Nvidia was that much easier. I wanted to immediately invest all my money in Bitcoins at the time, (they were about $2 if I remember right) as I figured I might make a few bucks by the time I finally built my desktop. But I never got around to it, all the transfer methods were such a hassle, so I just decided to wait til I could mine my own coin. Little did I know Bitcoin would be around $20 by the time I finally started mining.

I am now planning on expanding with more cards in my desktop (got one 6970 at 430Mhash/s running atm) and building some dedicated mining rigs. I have several old desktops from years past to cannibalize so my only expense will be graphics cards and the occasional PSU.

Also I been reading these forums since I learned about Bitcoin just have never gotten around to posting.

Post by: Donttreadonme on July 13, 2011, 12:04:21 AM
Posting to get past this 4 post thing.

I've been interested in bitcoin and when I first discovered this it hit me like a brick wall.

Ive seen that so many people; especially younger that do not have credit cards. And therefore can not use the internet to buy anything.

In fact Credit cards have almost a complete monopoly on internet sales.

I have no doubt in my mind that digital currency will take over online sales. Because of the lack of restrictions. Anyone can accept coins, anyone can use them.

I have a few goals short term.

What we need is to form a bank. Now i Know banks are evil and the hole point it to get rid of them. But hear me out. The biggest thing we need is trust. A place to go to if something goes wrong.

What we need is a place you can go, hand some one cash and get bit coins. And the same vice versa. Transforme bitcoins and get cash.

The main thing stopping me right now from getting coins is a lack of credit card to go to mt gox. Im trying to sell some stuff on auction site but no luck so far. Btw I'm selling an original 60gig ps3 if anyone is interested.

Once we do this is just a matter of getting POS linux box's tablets installed at retailers.

Hello all,

I'm from UK and started mining about two weeks ago. Started off with with 2 x 6870s at 600 MH/s. Just built a second rig with 3 x 5850s and getting around 1GH/s from them.

Both are running Ubuntu 11.4 and using poclbm miner.

6870s @ 980 MHz core, 1050 MHz memory, 100% fan speed, 70-75'C
5850s @ 775, 875, 825 MHz core, 900 MHz mem, 100% fan speed, 90',65',82'C

For some reason the 5850s run hotter and I might need to get additional fans.

Less than .3% rejection on Deepbit so I'm quite happy. I'd like to be able to underclock memory on both cards to see if that reduces heat.   AMD 11.6 drivers failed to install though...

Anyway, all the best!

Hi everyone,


I am from Shizuoka, Japan.

I am the owner of a Music and Sound Design firm called Fyutchaflex. Recently - last week! - we made the decision to accept bitcoin payments.

Right now, there are only a few music businesses involved in the bitcoin economy. I think it would be great if more could get involved.

I have a few ideas of things that could be done to promote the use of bitcoins for music purchases.

Hello World.

Not an unusual story, but I discovered Bitcoin in August 2010, poked around a bit, and wrote it off as a gimmick.  Now that it's become more mainstream, I'm interested again, though it's definitely still in its infancy.  I enjoy reading the Project Development sub-forum to see how new applications are coming along.  Cash has been around for thousands of years; it's time for something new.

Hi there,

I've been lurking these forums since about January, but only now finally registered. I've participated in a little bit of commerce in bitcoin (buying things), but no selling yet. Seeing as I have a 3D printer sitting on my desk here, I might be able to provide some useful services! I also dug an old Virtex-4 FX12 based FPGA dev board out of the closet, so there's a chance I might get into that project, time permitting.

Here's hoping bitcoin continues to grow!

Introduction is done in the beginning of the interview and NOT during it.

The interview panel knows your name so it is superfluous to start saying 'who you are' yourself. It is NOT advisable to start conversation yourself but wait for their initiation. However, when you enter the room just say Hello or Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening as the case may be.

In most cases the lead panelist would ask you to introduce yourself. (In some cases they may straight away ask you about your qualification and/or experience).Then, you can start with your name and the place you come from followed by your highest qualification with subject (major) and year of passing. Then, briefly speak of your relavant experience. Do not give unnecessary personal details unless asked for.

Remember, they already have your resume, so talking in details of your qualification and experience would only waste time and may even irritate them.

The bottom line is you should have smiling face and should speak briefly to the point.

My two HD 6870 are have a max OC in the bios of 1000 Mhz and I was able to get a max OC of 980 Mhz so no problems there.  My 5850 limited to 775 Mhz and I was able to OC to that then under-volt from 1075 mv to 1000 mv.  What did you use to unlock your 6950?

Sup, it's moeSizlak.  Been mining since '08:  June 8th.  Currently mining in a very small (20GH) pool:  http://www.rfcpool.com.  I got in right after they found their first block and it's been hella profitable (luck++) ever since.  But seriously, the real reason I'm on this board is I want to advertise my new website, which will be online and ready to go by mid-August, BITCOIN BLACKJACK:  http://bitjack21.com

The site is done entirely in HTML5 & Javascript, with a PHP/MySQL backend.

It's a 100% honest bitcoin blackjack game.  The house edge is less than 0.5%.  There are 8 decks, shuffled after every hand (to prevent card counting which would tip the edge in the player's favor).  The minimum bet will be 0.01BTC (currently about 15 US cents).  Doubling/splitting and most other common blackjack rules will be in full effect.

Come check it out, it's guaranteed to satisfy all of your bitcoin gambling needs!

Site will be going live in early to mid August 2011.

Hi all, I'm Lucas.

I'm a software engineer, the primary language I use is C/C++.
I first heard about Bitcoin in a slashdot article and was inspired by how it might change the world.
I believe decentralized currency is the future, in order to make that a reality I would like to contribute to the bitcoin code.
Current banking systems are corrupt and not functioning responsibly.
We cannot continue to allow corporations to exploit the bailout system.
Economic order needs to be restored and crypto-currency seems to be the way to go.

My secondary goal here is for this to be a learning experience.
I hope to learn quite a bit about cryptography, mathematics, economic systems, decentralized networks and network theory in general.
All casual interests of mine that I've always wanted to learn about and subsequently implement.

Post by: Bart31 on July 16, 2011, 09:28:43 PM
Hi, I am Bart and new to this forum. Last week I started out with two rigs on deepbit.net. In total I just got my 1st BTC :). Reading on this forum, I saw a webpage which showed who finished the last blocks. On that I saw slush and deepbit most. First I thought because they have to most power (workers), but on another thread I read that workers do not combine their calculations on the same block. I was thinking that solo mining was interesting, if you have the most Mhash/s power combined by more rigs, on your own bitcoind. But now I read that those rigs are not working on the same blocks. Even further, if you have 4 GPU's, all four miners on that rig are even not working on that same block. Is that correct?

Does that imply that solo mining is only interesting if your hardware has very high power per miner ? So that 2x a HD5850 ~350Mhash/s less interesting for solomining that 1x a HD5970 doing ~700Mhash/s?

Or do I have this wrong ?

Would be great to post in the correct threads instead of this newbies section.

Basically you install OpenCL and get it working, then point it at your pool with login info.  If you give some details about what hardware, OS, and mining software you're using I'll be happy to help you try to get it working.  If you already figured all that out (it took me a very long night a few months ago, and I feel like I'm pretty good with Linux and tech things), then kudos and have fun!

I'm a computer science grad student. My interests are assembly (x86), C/C++, GNU/Linux, CPU architecture, hobbyist OS development, OpenGL, game development, democoding, electronics and retro gaming.

I have now spent several hours trying to compile bitcoin, still without it working. This makes me quite sad. In one of my cryptography classes several years ago I was introduced to the concept of "digital cash" (primarily the mathematics thereof), but I will admit that I didn't know it was actually implemented like this prior to seeing the recent Slashdot article. So I thought I would just try it for myself -- too bad I'm spending so much time just trying to compile the thing.

Title: Occupying a corner of the bitcoinverse from the Pacific NW
Post by: ghotir on July 17, 2011, 08:31:33 AM
I know from IRC there's a handful of us hanging out from the left coast of the United States.
Been a geek since I was 9 - when my dad brought home a VIC-20 (then C64, IBM 8088 - yeah 8088, not 80286 or 386) and I learned Commodore BASIC by typing in programs from the back of magazines, breaking them, seeing what I could do differently.
At this stage in the game, I've not run or used any Microsoft OS willingly since 1996, though I'm forced to keep abreast of developments in order to support my Windows-using clients
My 1st taste of Linux was from a LinuxMall "6 Pack" that included S.u.S.E. gmbh Linux (yep that is what it was called), RedHat 4.1, Caldera Linux, Debian (potato?) and several other distros that have long disappeared.

My current computer set up is FreeBSD 8.2  (GNU Zealots can suck it. MIT license all the way).
Despite the geekness, I'm not a strong programmer (web languages, PHP [and PHP-MySQL interaction], Perl),but I know enough to be a danger to myself but not usually to others. 
I'm currently teaching myself python (and curses) to make a console-based interface to bitcoind (for non-GNOME/KDE/[name your GUI here] users and possible headless--but easy access?)

Anyway, I'm one to try the "latest and greatest and most obscure" and also one to try and break it where applicable.
With bitcoin though, I'm relatively new to the scene. But its idea and the ideals speak to my inner anarchistic anti-statist  libertarian (go ahead, try and  label me - I'm the aforementioned in some regards, conservative in others).
I will more often than not play "devil's advocate" just for the hell of it and in doing so, I may or may not be expressing my true beliefs (something that drives my girlfriend crazy)

Okay, I  tried to keep it somewhat coherent, linear and short. I have problems with that, obviously (but so do other geeks, I've come to notice)

Not so late! Still plenty of opportunities in various places; I've found the various marketplaces are still starting out, with more people hoarding their btc and waiting for something useful to do with it.

There are other little quicky opportunities too - the pyramid in my sig still has < 100 people in, so is still fresh and ripe for pickin' if you can handle a little gamble ;)
