1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Moving the BBT Farm to Full Immersion on: April 18, 2021, 06:30:12 PM
Will be documenting the entire journey. Here is the first video, basic rig design for the flow plates to be engineered for our immersion tanks.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Can mining survive after Ethereum? Critical Analysis Model of Ravencoin on: February 19, 2021, 08:56:06 PM
As a further development of the original Mining Analysis sheet, I have pivoted to a key question. Can another network support the existing Ethereum GPU Mining Hashrate if transferred over. In this first model attempt I walk through the algebra and calculus involved at trying to identify with known/knowns mixed with some assumptions (on asic amount on ethereum) to get to a size of scope / price RVN would need to move to on supporting Ethereum's network projection.

Looking foward to working additional features in the model. Please let me know what else you would like to see
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / EIP-1559 - Let's Talk on: January 15, 2021, 06:48:14 PM
Good morning folks,

After having a bit of a back and forth with some of the Ethereum proponents on EIP-1559, I felt I should do some digging on price discovery vs supply/demand argument being put for on how Ethereum's Security argument is being portrayed as a 'we are paying to much for security, lets drive price by burning fees' argument is playing out with this approved EIP. I felt it would be best said vs. the linear approach at writing the points.

What are some of your stories for a possible future testimonial I will use in further discussions with Ethereum Developers. Help me tell them part of your mining story.

  • How did you Discover Ethereum
  • Do you mine? What was your first attempt, single GPU or a rig?
  • What were your set expectations when you made that decision, based on what?
  • Has the experience in ethereum mining change your life in anyway?
  • What is your future planning with mining if ETH decides to drop fees and mining becomes net negative as network adjust?

You can add more to your story and I will try to include in one of my next upcoming videos. Thanks again for the correspondence my dudes. Cheers
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / 14x 5700xt build on HiveOS - How we did it on: October 20, 2020, 11:24:01 PM
Quick overview covered in less than 5min video. I have been trying to keep these as lean as possible for viewership. Any idea's how I can make them more streamline?
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / 21 GPU build - /w how we did it on: October 01, 2020, 04:17:47 PM
Over the past week BBT Todd and I have played around with a 19 and 21 card build using the XFX 5700XT Tri-Fan DD / THICC GPU paired up with the 8x Manli P106-090. In this test we explore what has changed since that World Record build back in 2017 with the RX 470 4GB Sapphire Mining Editions paired with the same Manli P106s. Bottom line, An increase of nearly 300MH and reduction of nearly 1200w are the results. Boasting now 850MH at 2650w sustained vs the previous build bouncing between 3300-3700w for a mere 553MH.

The 19 card variation with BIOS and optimized settings (in video) gets the rig to 763mh @ 2245w from the wall (30A PDU); would like to hear some of your guys experience with the ASUS B250 Mining Expert and 19 card builds. Post your pictures! Would love to see how you arranged the GPUs.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / 19GPU 5700XT (11) P106 (8) Mining Rig build in 2min (stock bioses) on: September 24, 2020, 11:24:03 PM
Working later tonight on this - optimization/bios modding and further configuration to drive it as close to 2kw as possible. Strongly believe I can hit over 750+ MH with this build.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / This *could change after 3000 series, but 5600 XT is king for a few on: September 01, 2020, 08:43:11 AM
Did a 1.5h livestream last night going through a range of settings/configs with the 5600 XT 6GB using only the AMD Driver Tool. Results in video; bottom line 1300 core *800mv /w 1860M and -50% power limit = 75w of usage at nearly 39mh full card. 85w if you want 43.3mh. With a 30-50w System Power you could get 8 of those for 310mh @ 650w!
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / What to do with those 4GB GPUs once ETH/ETC exceed DAG size on: August 19, 2020, 04:35:46 PM I take a few minutes to talk options. I know these are not everything and would be interested in a follow on shouting out your guys suggestions on what you plan doing. What is your forecast on next steps post a 4GB Eth/Etc?
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / BBT Montage of Cryptocurrency Mining on: April 13, 2020, 12:44:57 AM
It's hard sometimes to articulate why I do what I do for BBT, but exploring many video's in the archives I help remember why I find this space so fascinating and reinforce why individual participation in mining is so important to the engagement of these crypto POW networks. The ability to participate is paramount and to help bring you through that journey is one of my passions. Here's to the past and preparing for the future!

11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / PROGPOW Explainer in 4min. on: March 07, 2019, 08:57:33 PM

With the pending change to PROGPOW, a lot of questions come up to what is it, how does it work, what makes it different and why would a coin change to it.

In a past livestream I covered an explanation on what's going on with PROGPOW and how it leverages the entire GPU. This was the quickest I could explain in under 4min. A larger deep dive, if in order will be done in a proper tutorial style episode.

FULL Results being compiled and will be posted on

Can't wait till they actually get the drivers fixed and other ancillary support tools such as OverdriveN start working
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / CoinAgenda 2019 Afterparty - How to buy Ravencoin using the Vault Logic ATM on: January 23, 2019, 05:09:35 PM

If you can't scan the PK in the video - in an upcoming stream I will give it out. It was cool seeing a lot of projects at the event with actual demo's and showing functional content. So much is still being built but never bubbles up. Going to events, being part of this industry since 2011, since 2013 on YouTube I have seen a lot, but in the last 6 months, the people hunkering down and building real content on chain, punching through the tougher use cases like IDAM, Security, Co-Location (distributed and quorum governance) is refreshing.

I remain optimistic!
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Radeon VII - Will it be good at Cryptomining on: January 15, 2019, 04:18:48 AM

Talking to engineers at the AMD booth at CES 2019 ... they seem to think 25% in raw hashpower increase. The question is, are they sandbagging and its actually much better?
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / HTC Exodus 1 Review Blockchain Phone in under 5 minutes! Bitcoin Hardware Wallet on: December 12, 2018, 06:52:33 AM

First of a few reviews on this phone. One of many this next year it seams with Samsung building their own too. Once we get access to the SDK will do a development video for folks interested.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / BitsBeTrippin Created a service on Ravecoin's Asset Layer on: December 09, 2018, 08:50:29 AM

7 minute video that highlights the system


With the limited production of the Boring "Not" a Flamethrower VER 1.0 being 20,000 devices BBT Carter decided what a better way to help bridge the gap of unique assets with the real world assets through the use of the public, permissionless Ravencoin blockchain. Ravencoin community contributors recently implemented a asset system that allows registration of digital 'assets' on the Ravencoin network. This creates amazing opportunities to link real world assets with a blockchain.

To help move the understanding in the space we have created a certification service to digitally link your unique Boring Flamethrower to a blockchain. Choosing this item at checkout will kick off the process of registering your serial number and providing back you you a unique token (1 of 20,000) along with (500) later phase use subassets and the 1 unique SN tied and cryptographically unique asset. The unique token allows you to link digitally to your unique serial number and creates the ability for you to then link events such as images and video you do with your device to a immutable blockchain.

Why this matters?

This creates a whole new possibility of sharing the fun you have with your device specifically as with most social media the content is centered around you as the participant, not so much the device itself. What we are proposing is that your Boring "Not" a Flamethrower now can have its own history track of the fun you have had with it, digitally linked to the serial number. This provides the option to  single out the device itself and show a historical lineage of its usage and fun! If you were wanting to sell it or give it to a family member you could transfer them the digital asset with the physical transaction and it would post the fact of the transaction on the Ravencoin network. Bottom line, it gives you a independant, non-centralized layer to store even, transaction and validation of the fun you choose to post about the activity you shared to the network (think instagram, meets facebook, meets youtube for the flamethrower).

Lastly, if by chance you have went through this service with your "not" a Flamethrower and someone happens to stumble upon it in the distant future, they could simply look up a serial number lookup service we will be providing later on the roadmap to see if the asset was ever registered and what events were ever posted about it.

At the end of the day, anyone on here can take this entire process and do the same thing with any other asset on the planet. If you have an idea, ,get it done, part of us going through this activity is to help show you can work through the development required to make it stronger.

Doing livestream tomorrow with Monero, Ubiq, Bit Tube and more ... Interested with some BIOS tweaks but limited review looks like AMD took that effort for us and optimized it already.
19  Economy / Trading Discussion / Flawed mechanisms cause major issues in DEXs and Voting on: November 20, 2018, 06:03:09 AM

Smart Contract Security - Incentives Beyond the Launch

This was a wonderful presentation by Philip Daian. In my opinion one of the more important presentations at Devcon highlighting the realities of DEXs and front running. Philip highlights this activity in this presentation with some compelling research.

To mitigate security issues that were quickly evident in the deployment of smart contracts, developers have tried a wide variety of security techniques.  Standard when deploying new contracts is manual review by an externally contracted company/individual, often with verification tools.  In many ways this has been a success, reducing observed security incidents. In this talk, we take a look at how unique incentives in smart contracts affect the process of securing them. Smart contracts are often non-upgradeable: enshrinement at release encourages security processes that end after a contract is deployed, leaving blind spots in long-term security guarantees against evolving threats.  Pressure to ship often leaves critical guarantees out-of-scope of external reviews, and auditor incentives discourage detailed, fundamental criticisms of contracts' protocols. We explore flawed mechanisms whose obvious security flaws cost users millions today, even though such flaws are often out of launch audit scope. We empirically quantify the size of this problem, highlighting major issues with all smart contract voting and all decentralized exchange protocols.  We conclude by exploring systemic risk, discussing mechanisms whose flaws could one day go beyond affecting their users to threaten the stability of all dapps.  We conclude with lessons learned for security conscious dapp developers.
