1  Economy / Services / My experience dealing with the so-called accelerator services on: January 29, 2018, 08:23:30 AM
Recently, I manually set extremely low fees when making two bitcoin transactions and the transactions didn't confirm for a week. I tried to reply to several threads in this forum advertising free accelerator services. I also tried to different online forms. The transactions was still stuck. Some members of this forum even sent me private messages, saying they would help accelerate my transactions with ridiculous amount of fees.

In the end, I abandoned the transactions and send the transactions with higher fees and I'm glad they went through. The lesson is the suggested fees in the Bitcoin Core is quite good!

3  Economy / Computer hardware / WTS: Sapphire 5830 on: June 12, 2013, 09:32:47 PM
I have a few of them. I bought them from newegg and all of them are in excellent condition. Each is .7 btc incl. shipping if you're in US.

I have also sold one of the cards previously in this forum and the buyer was happy (you can search for the old posts).
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Litecoin GPU mining: pool reports a much lower hashrate than cgminer on: April 02, 2013, 04:37:33 PM
cgminer shows that my 5830 gave me 320khs but the pool site only shows about 170khs. I have tried different pools btw.

anybody else seeing this?

6  Bitcoin / Mining / where is AngelusWebDesign? on: October 17, 2011, 05:53:05 AM
Usually every time there's a big drop in the price, I expect him to post something. (And I really enjoy his posts Smiley
7  Economy / Goods / [WTS] 2x Sapphire 5830 $100 ea in BTC shipped (UPS, CONUS) on: September 16, 2011, 04:38:59 AM
Full package provided. 316 Mhash/s with Phoenix 1.6.2.

I sold one to gfaust earlier and he can vouch for me.

PS, I don't have any heatware refs. I only sold one of my 3 5830s before with this post (And yes, I'm still selling the rest 2 but not in a hurry)
9  Bitcoin / Mining / hashing rate stats of major pools on: August 06, 2011, 10:37:25 PM
deepbit: 5426 Gh/s
slush: 1845.487 Ghash/s
btcguild: 2192.55 GH/s

they're probably down slightly (especially slush as I remember it was over 2000 Ghs last week). So it means at current price ($7.4), most miners still find it's profitable, or most think it'll bounce.
10  Economy / Speculation / nlod $7.3 on: August 06, 2011, 09:25:48 PM
nlod, nlod....

11  Economy / Speculation / [poll] what's the average cost of your BTC holding? on: August 06, 2011, 05:48:33 PM
Just curious to see the average cost of everybody's BTC.

BTW, I admit I only mine and it'is totally for the profit, and I believe quite a few percentage people here are doing the same for the same reason.
12  Economy / Goods / [WTS] Sapphire 5830 for $100 (shipping included) on: August 02, 2011, 05:40:11 AM
I'd like to downsize my mining operation.

The card was purchased new through newegg ( on 6/6 (3 day shipping so you can figure out how long I've used it for). I'm getting 314 mhs with the 975/300 setting (modified phatk kernel). I've NEVER flashed the BIOS or changed the voltage.

It's in perfect condition and I'll provide all the packaging & accessories as well.

I'll take BTC using current conversation rate. I'm in eastside Seattle so if you can pick it up in person, you can save the shipping.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Red Cross Donation at TradeHill on: August 02, 2011, 03:09:08 AM
I'm wondering if TradeHill will provide some transparency on how the donation is made. I'm interested in donating some bitcoins. Will tradehill convert it to USD immediately and donate to Red Cross? Thanks.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Should deepbit/slush/btcguid switch to namecoin mining? on: July 23, 2011, 01:35:12 AM
Then automate the exchange process and we can still get BTC?
15  Economy / Speculation / was so happy when it was at 14.7 on: July 19, 2011, 04:08:22 AM
It dropped so quickly and I didn't have time to sell as I was in the gym.

Well. There will always be a pop next time
16  Bitcoin / Mining / for people who started mining recently, have you paid off your machines? on: July 18, 2011, 06:50:49 AM
Started mining in the begining of June. Panic sold some BTCs at $13.66 two weeks ago, which covers the cost of all my video cards. Still haven't paid off the cost of the rest of my machine yet. If the price of BTC goes down even further or the difficulty keeps going up, it'll probably take longer to pay off everything.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / tradehill BTC withdrawal bug? on: July 08, 2011, 03:25:02 AM
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / bitcoin to hedge against inflation? on: July 05, 2011, 02:27:59 PM
I sold 2/3 of my bitcoins (after 1 month mining), I'm debating whether I should continue to sell the rest.

The basic argument here I see is bitcoin is better than USD because its supply is limited and won't expand. In other words, a lot of people hold bitcoins to hedge against USD inflation (at least that's one of the many reasons).

So my question is if bitcoin/USD exchange rate continues to fall or even remaining constant, does it mean bitcoin is also being inflated (even without the increase of its total quantity)?

I can understand how gold or even real estate can hedge against inflation because they have real value. For bitcoin, it's just another currency whose value is yet to be determined...
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / what's your stop loss on: July 04, 2011, 08:08:14 PM
if anybody is familiar with this basic investment concept. Now my question is what's your stop loss? You're holding BTCs because you either bought them or mined them. Either way, do you set any stop loss?

For me, I'll probably sell all my BTCs if the price goes below $10.
20  Bitcoin / Mining / What's your reject/accept ratio on: June 27, 2011, 04:22:57 AM
Not stale rate, but rejection rate, which you can calculate using the stat shows in your miner. My case, for example, [8053 Accepted] [119 Rejected], so the reject/accept ratio is 119/8053=1.47%.

I believe this is also pool related:
deepbit: about 0.6%
btcguild: about 1.5%
slush: will test next...
