3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / To open source or stay private? Predictive models, simulation testing and more on: October 03, 2017, 09:20:47 PM
Hello Smiley

I've been working with my dev's in developing some algo's in the attempt of identifying historical news/activity patterns which precede price increases.  I am developing a simulation system which would be used for testing the algo's before using them live.

So far I have been funding the operation myself.  I thought to get some good traction and then go to public/group discussions for further development and to explore opportunities.  I have been considering changing the approach to be more public and group/community oriented up front.

I've done about $15k in R&D so far and overall things seem to be on the right track.

This being said, I wonder just how much faster and deeper this would move with community support.  I have not done a community project before though and although I have a solid enough business, marketing and team coordination background I am not a developer or economist by any means.  I have developed a number of smaller applications and softwares for one of my other companies and thoroughly enjoy the development process, coordinating the team, testing and communicating the vision and seeing it all completed.

I thought to post this topic to see what input, suggestions, interest or other discussions this may stimulate.

Looking forward to finding out!
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Which rig to setup and which coins to mine? on: October 03, 2017, 08:59:05 PM
Hello Smiley

I am interested in setting up a mid sized mining operation at the moment.  I have location picked for now and now I am researching which rigs and coins to work with.

When I do my analysis it seems that for a hobby, a number of miners are ok.  But as a real business it is much more difficult.  It seems many people do not factor in the total sum of expenses other than electricity such as:

-  Rig depreciation (it seems budgeting for a new machine every 12 months is realistic, would you agree or no?)
-  Maintenance/Repairs and downtime
-  Location costs for storage of equipment
-  Labour costs for maintenance, monitoring which coins to mine, security etc
-  Mining difficulty increases



What sort of income statement financials have you put together?

Would you recommend custom designing my own rig or using off the shelf?

If custom, do you know who I could contact for this?

Any other good experience you have would be great to hear!

Thank you Smiley
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Custom mining rigs and profitability of mining on: October 02, 2017, 10:57:13 PM
Hello everyone,

I am new to mining and have noticed from various threads that it seems difficult to generate a profit unless there is a very specific advantage to the mining farm.  I am now doing research to figure out how best to make a custom rig to be ahead of the curve.  Anyone have good experience with this??

It seems that many people factor in the common expenses such as:
1.  Cost of machine
2.  Electricity

And that most people do not factor in other important expenses such as:
3.  Replacing machine in approx 12 months when newer technology and mining difficulty increases make it redundant
4.  Late arrival of equipment; if the 'newest best rig' doesn't arrive until after 6 months then only approx 6 months remain of profitability instead of 12
5.  Mining difficulty increases effect on profit over time, decreasing on-going
6.  Management of equipment and facility  (time is $$$)
7.  Security (time is $$$)
8.  Storage of equipment (if not running in your basement at home that is)


With the expenses 3-8 above factored in, mining profitably seems difficult.  It leads me to researching how to engineer a custom rig to give me an advantage.

Has anyone done something like this before??

7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Historical data on 'delisted' or 'failed' alt coins on: September 11, 2017, 02:44:50 AM
I am searching for historic data on altcoins which have been delisted from coinmarketcap, does anyone have insight into this?

I am doing some historical data analysis at the moment and noticed that for example only 7 coins are showing data history on coinmarketcap from 2013, whereas I am thinking there were more coins than that listed in 2013.

Without factoring in all coins including failed or otherwise delisted coins, the data would be incomplete.

Any help you have to offer in this search is appreciated Smiley Thank you!
