1  Economy / Exchanges / Do not use for fiat withdrawals on: November 05, 2018, 02:26:02 PM
They won't allow me to withdraw despite being a fully verified member. 

Not via bank transfer, sepa transfer or to any verified cards I have linked to my accounts. 

Don't waste your time and effort here.   I had to pay fees to move my BTC here and fees to wthdraw it afterwards. 

Useless service.

2  Bitcoin / Hardware wallets / Ledger Nano S Question regarding recovery. on: December 12, 2017, 04:55:03 PM

Hi hopefully someone can answer this question.

After recovering a 24 word seed to restore the device, will it ask for my original PIN again or will i need to add a new pin? 

So assuming that a thief who has heard of bitcoin, breaks into my home and steals my recovery words / seed, will they have access to my coins or do they still need to have the pin number as well?

Or assuming I were to die, and i wanted to leave any coins to loved ones, and lets say the device was lost but they have the recovery 24 word seed, would they will still need to know the PIN?

Basically when recovering with the original seed, is the original pin still required, or will the device accept a new PIN?

3  Bitcoin / Mining support / BFGminer / CGminer mining screen view from putty login. on: November 27, 2014, 11:18:05 PM
Does anyone know how to get the mining display back when re-logging into your computer / vps / raspberry pi from putty.

For example, i get the mining screen up and running,  then log out of putty, and later I want to log back in an view the accepted shares / blocks etc.

any ideas?   
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Slice - a fairer coin - (Can we build a community based coin from scratch) on: November 24, 2014, 02:05:59 PM
The other day I was trying to compile, many altcoins on a raspberry pi, it didn't work (various errors, missing dependencies).

The only ones I could get to compile hassle free were Feathercoin (NeoScrypt) and Novacoin (scrypt).

It got me thinking of a new coin that really would be something original and fairer than the existing coins out there.  The only coins that gain true traction are the original innovative coins.  (with the exception of doge)

While messing around with my raspberry pi, it dawned on me...(and please correct me if this has already been done) but;

What if we could make a coin that is only mineable on an Arm6 or Arm7 CPU... (although this is probably impossible and anyway could be emulated )... It could / should be possible to make a coin that would only accept a certain number of hashes per second per IP address.

Many coins suffer from the problem of the big well funded miners, coming in and swamping the small time miner.  Each node on the network would be limited, meaning the only way to scale would be in parallel, this by it's very nature would create a mining base that is very decentralized, and in theory economical.  In time mining programs could evolve to run on 1 core of an android phone for example.

This would make the coin unique, because the problem of altcoin centralization over time could be drastically reduced.  By limiting the  hash power to IP addresses, there would be no CPU, GPU, FPGA or Asic farms, or even for that matter single desktops, because the most efficient mining tool would be the low power single board computer like a Raspberry Pi.  A single 5 watt computer per miner, and every miner would in theory have an equal share of the coins.  This would render pools useless... because they would not be needed.

No point setting up mining farms, without an individual IP address (ipv4) per raspberry pi (which would be difficult).  So it means miners with little money can get an equal slice of the daily coin distribution with just a single raspberry pi....  It doesn't matter that the total hash power is low, because everyone is in the same boat, Preconfigured Raspberry Pi's could be sold to those with little knowledge. 

If I had the skillz, and the time I would make this coin, because it's something new and innovative.  Because there are a lot of Raspberry Pi fans, and a lot of people that want a more fair coin where the big boys don't take the lions share.

a true, low power, easy algorithm coin, with cheap equipment, bypasses the centralization problem, no noise, no fuss.  And electricity per month would cost about $0.50 (a month) per person / IP address.  So using cheap VPS is possible but the raspberry pi would be much cheaper to run as IPV4 IP's cost about $1 a month.

The coin would also be less prone to forking because each miner is automatically a connection on the network,  The command line version of the coin would be forced on each miner making a strong network that when established would be almost immune to a 51% attack.

I don't know if it's possible, but if it had some real features, I believe it could be a top coin.

I know there are 1000's of alt coins out there, but this would have an instant advantage over 95% of them, and would be an instant classic.

The main features of the coin would be;

  • Hash power limited to specific amount for each unique IPV4 IP address
  • To be able to reach that limited hash power using a small and efficient computer (raspberry pi)
  • To be able to offer plug and play (pre-configured) devices to novice miners
  • To possibly limit IP rages (blocks of IP addresses) to deter data centers
  • Maybe integrate some kind of exchange feature like counterparty or ripple
  • Fast but low reward blocks to insure a more even distribution due to the fact pools would be obsolete.

If anyone out there sees the potential please reply.  Of course, anyone could simply take this idea and roll with it, but If it were born out of the community, we should work together to make a coin like this.  A truly fairer coin that everyone can get involved with.

If this has already been done, then please let me know.  If it's impossible please explain why.

The name for this idea was, Slice - As in a slice of the Pi.

9  Economy / Service Discussion / Tough Questions about the Monarch Card on: November 10, 2013, 08:14:41 PM
Tough Questions about the Monarch Card

Q Hey you Jerks, what are you doing announcing 28nm gear while you're still shipping 65nm? I want my Single!


65nm products are shipping in volume now after over a year of delays, but they'll be out of production before the first 28nm Monarch cards are through development and ready to be shipped.  If you haven't already received your 65nm product you wont ever get a return on your investment, but you will receive it very soon. It will be useless for mining maybe you can use a single case to drain boiled vegetables, by opening one end. Another good use is to get many of them (they will be $2 soon on ebay) and play BFL style Jenga.  

The ASIC engineering team switched to 28nm shortly after tapeout of the 65nm, when they could have been used to help production of the products we sold a long time ago. Because chip development is traditionally a year long process (we like to make excuses where we can), ASIC engineering teams work far in advance in order to deliver the outdated technology to the market.  Please don't think that production of your singles ever lost a second to 28nm development, because they lost hours, days, weeks and months.  We've put minimal resources into building our supply chain & production capacity so that we can serve our customers, after all once we have your money what do we care?!  Nothing is more important to us than shipping your order after it's obsolete.

Q Will the power & performance really be that good?


BFL began making bitcoin mining hardware in 2011 with the announcement of the now famous FPGA 'Single'.  The delivered speed was overestimated to gain sales, but the power consumption was higher than the design simulation indicated something we have a track record of now.  The product was mediocre but to be honest people could have made something similar with a little skill and experience.

So fast forward to our first generation ASIC chip which was an original design.  We delivered exactly the speed promised over a year late, the power consumption was higher than predicted, and we used this to scam people into making a decision.  We held customers to ransom, saying they will all ship in June or July.  We forced people to agree to new terms and conditions then took another 5 months (and counting) to get some orders out.  We really are a company that will tell you it's raining and piss on your back.  That 65nm ASIC chip is now almost worthless as soon it will not be efficient enough to be profitable. It's a chip, that we used to make you guys the Guinea pig for this soon to be obsolete hardware. We are confident that our Monarch will be able to produce 1.7 GH per Joule, an eight-fold increase over our 65nm ASIC products, but take that with a huge pinch of salt, as we made many claims in the past that were not true or never happened.  

In sum, the value of a 2nd generation chip can't be overstated.  It allows us to optimize with great vision and it takes the guesswork out of calculating power and speed in the final silicon design.

The bottom line is that BFL is only interested is profit and does not care if the customer is left in a world of poop!

Q Can I transfer my existing order into a 28nm Monarch card ?


Yes, but again bear in mind how slow we are, how we will tell you it's almost ready, when actually we know it's way off.  Also there is the risk we will have to defend a law suit or several, so your money may be used for our lawyers.  Heck, we're gonna need 'em.  So just keep this in mind before transferring.

Q Can you host these for me?

Yes we can, but again be aware that, there may be long delays.  

Q Why should I place my Pre-Order with Butterfly Labs?


That's a good question.

Since 2011, Butterfly Labs has been telling customer "not much longer" so why break the habit of a lifetime?  As we enter the 28nm era, we're the only competitor with a CEO proven guilty in court of fraud.  We have 45 employees, some of which may be facing law suits in the future, a painfully slow production line & fragile supply chain.   Our 28nm competitors don't need to belittle other competition in the way we do.  Most of them have a track record that makes us look incompetent.  Their manufacturing, supply chain and engineering are all back-of-the-napkin ideas, like the Avalon guy that beat us to the ASIC market,  it really shows how useless we really are.  

    Shipped more outdated ASIC's than all competitors combined
    2nd generation (vaporware) ASIC
    4th generation bitcoin processor (We have got worse with each generation)
    Slowest production line
    45 employees most with a lack of customer service

Q Why should I place my Pre-Order with Butterfly Labs?


And here's the kicker,  we guarantee you that we will keep making you feel that it is close to shipping but, our track record does not lie, we are lethargic and borderline incompetent.  We will give you a small slice of the truth and after we get your money, there's no getting it back.  

We've been in development for approximately six months.  We're now in the final stage of the process which is wafer start at the foundry.  However, I must stress how we only at the PRE-ORDER stage.  We have NON-PRE-ORDER products if you want order them, but even though they are not PRE-ORDER we are still shipping orders from April this year.  

With that in mind, you will be lucky to get your miner by 2015.

Here are the timeline milestones:

    Tapeout (Initialization of wafer production)  
    Foundry production takes 10 weeks   (our delays take another 30 or so weeks)
    Bumping, Slicing & BGA packaging takes approximately 2 weeks  (but approximately can mean withing +/- 200% or more)
    Initial shipments begin and ramp up to full capacity over the following 3 weeks

Since this is our 2nd generation ASIC chip, we're largely free of risk from the pitfalls normally associated with a new chip design, but we are likeley to find new excuses in the future.  Testing systems, Bumping masks, Substrates & under fill engineering are all carryovers from our proven first ASIC fail, so with that in mind, remember we were only so good last time due to beginners luck.  And remember when we do delay, we will stop offering refunds when the new product is obsolete.  

 We are ButterFly Labs,  and our latin moto is "Mora, praestigiis, quam turpis est!"

13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Opinions on what to do with $2000 on: August 16, 2013, 11:44:31 AM
I should be able to get a refund on my 30GHs and 60GHs BFL miners.  They are March this year.  I had a previous (august 2012) 30GHs order that was refunded last year.  I regret cancelling that order now.  I reordered and got sucked in again with the hype, but what should i do with my other 2 BFL orders.

1. Wait for my ASICs ?   or

Get a refund and...

2. Order with KnC

3. Invest in Scryrpt GPU's (maybe wait till 9000 series)

4. order with some other ASIC maker

5. wait for more efficient and cheaper models to emerge

6. wait for some sort of scrypt ASIC (if it ever happens)

7. Invest in Crypto

8. Invest in a crypto service!

9. Run away and forget BTC, LTC and all the rest.

I would love to hear people opinions Smiley

We are looking to open a pool for our new coin (DollarPounds).

hosted on a VPS.  Is anyone able to help set this up?

Either mmcFE or some other custom made pool.

Make me an offer if you have the skills and are interested. Please reply with offers and any examples of previous work.

We have no DollarPounds, DPS as there was no premine.

So all possible payments would be in BTC or LTC

16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Anyone with experience willing to setup a mmcfe-ng tye pool for me? on: August 11, 2013, 09:20:37 PM
I hopefully will have a new coin i want to launch soon.  I want to have a pool shortly after release. 

The coin would not claim new innovation and I am not going to say it offers anything new..  it doesn't,  i just want to do this, if the coin dies in 2 weeks thats fine. 

Does anyone have the skills and experience to help.  Also what type of hosting is needed ?  can it be done on share hosting (dedicated IP)  or do you need a server or VPS?

17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Who is the best forum member to clone a new coin? on: August 11, 2013, 03:45:35 PM
I want to make a new coin.

It won't claim revolution, and it will just be, shit coin number 202, offering nothing that has not already been done.

I want the coin for hobby purposes, although it would be publicly realeased. 

Anyone know the best person for the job, to clone a (yet another) scrypt coin ? and the price that would be reasonable to pay them.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Do transaction messages bloat the blockchain? on: August 11, 2013, 12:54:35 PM
as the titles says!

If there is coin X which is identical to coin Y but with the added feature of sending messages with your transaction, which is best?

Obviously coin X looks best but does the block chain get bloated by the messages?  will it eventually slow the coin transactions down?

Coin Y (no transaction messages)

Coin X (with Transaction messages)
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / seed node on: August 09, 2013, 05:31:50 PM
Does anyone understand what a seed node pointer is?

it says in the source code for many coins the seed node that is either an IP or a domain.

but what i need to know is does this IP address or domain need to have anything at their end. 

for example if the coin has  in the src/net.cpp file a seed node of    what does there need to be at in the public html folder? 

I hope im making sense, i would be grateful for any help.

So you have been mining or have purchased some coins that will fail... Angry

Don't worry, keep your wallet.dat file.   And im sure there will be crypto collectors in 20 years time just looking to buy your wallet.dat file and revive the network with just a mobile phone.  The more crap the coin and the quicker it fails, the more it will be worth.  

Year 2033, your 10000 Twatcoins are now worth 100 BTC which is now worth $10,000,000   Cheesy
