1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Stolen Coins and their Destination : Slush Pool Hack from 2012 on: August 26, 2016, 09:34:35 AM
I realise this is old news now, but I was looking at an old post by Slush relating to the hack on his pool (as a result of a vulnerability in Linode's web management interface).

The original topic is here.

I followed the coins a bit from the original destination address and found that they haven't really gone anywhere, beyond being recycled several times :
Although it looks like today and yesterday they started being split up again.

Did anyone ever find out who perpetrated the hack ? Is anything being done to recover the coins or prevent them from being used ? Anything interesting someone can add ?

I'm just curious.
2  Bitcoin / Hardware / Avalon2 Single Modular 55nm CGMiner or BFGMiner detection on: February 27, 2014, 12:34:53 PM

I recently received a second generation (55nm) Avalon2 Single unit. Avalon sells 2U rack-mount units for 4.5BTC that have three of these "single" units inside them. When you buy the single unit on it's own you get a small interface card with it that let's you connect the machine to a PC via USB.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like support for this module exists in either the latest CGMiner or BFGMiner. CGMiner has a driver-avalon2.c file and xiangfu has been contributing to it, but it appears as though cgminer lacks the linkage from identification to driver library to actually identify the device and start mining with it.

Can anyone help with getting CGMiner to recongise this device ? The device presents as a USB serial port under Linux :

Bus 001 Device 012: ID 067b:2303 Prolific Technology, Inc. PL2303 Serial Port

3  Economy / Currency exchange / South African Rands for BTC on: November 11, 2013, 09:07:39 PM

I'm looking for someone who can supply reasonable volumes* of BTC for South African Rands** in the near future (next 2 months).

I'm located near Cape Town.

Thanks Smiley

*Reasonable = 50 BTC at a time, perhaps 50BTC per month.
**Can be cash or EFT.
4  Other / Beginners & Help / Buying BTC in South Africa on: October 27, 2013, 04:05:32 PM

I'm South African and I'm looking for other South Africans that have bitcoins to sell.

Assuming a rate of $200 USD per btc, I'm looking to buy between 50 and 200 btc per month starting from (and including) December 2013.

Hopefully when I've become more established I'll be able to move this topic into the correct section.

And as a general introduction : I started mining Bitcoins via Slush's pool with an OC'ed ATI GPU in June 2012. I have found 2 blocks; 200279 and 216293. I'm now mining with a BFL 30GHash/sec unit and a DE0-Nano FPGA (lol), both using BFGMiner on a Raspberry Pi.

Thanks Smiley
