1  Economy / Services / WTS My signature on: June 12, 2017, 04:31:28 PM
Hi,I'm looking for individuals or companies willing to rent out a line of my signature in exchange for BTC,ETH,LTC or even GBP (via PayPal) of around 50 equivalent a month as I want to build a collection of both virtual currencies and help me fund my upcoming feature film which will be filmed in select cities worldwide after we finish the UK filming dates.

Who's interested? If one person wants to buy all 3 lines of my signature that'll be great. Smiley

Please stick to replying to this thread for making offers so it's easier for me to reply to you,as I don't like checking in several different places to see your comments Smiley
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Help me import my dogecoin private keys on: June 12, 2017, 09:06:37 AM
I used a wallet on my old android phone for dogecoin as at the time (in 2014) I thought that a smartphone would be faster and more convenient than having to bring a heavy laptop with me everytime I needed to access my coins.

I'll keep this to the point since I've looked everywhere else online and couldn't find a solution specific to the wallet I originally exported coins from, into a standard wallet now:
1.I used this app originally on my smartphone
2.I then exported it as a password protected file.It wasn't a wallet.dat file as I thought it would. It just says this:"dogecoin-wallet-keys-2014-04-25" and I still have the password with me so that's not the issue here.
3.I've since tried to import to wallets made recently such as Dogecoin core 1.10,MultiDoge (latest version) and Exodus (latest version) but to no avail as all of these wallets expect either a wallet.dat file or a .keys file,I have neither of those files and the changing file extension trick didn't work (as the apps said they couldn't be read,even when I entered my password)
4.I'm posting this on here after a long break away from this forum as I don't see any reliable tips on other sites I looked at (dogecoin forums,reddit dogecoin subreddits) and I'm hoping someone on here can help me find something to get that wallet open.
5.I remember seeing around 56K dogecoins in that wallet. Thanks to the sharp rise in value of BTC,ETH and LTC,I also heard that dogecoin will follow the same direction as it seems all cryptocoins that were created earlier but largely forgotten about until now are rising in value.

Is there anyone who can help?
Thanks Smiley
3  Economy / Services / Looking for someone to help me make a coin (based on SHA-256 or Scrypt) on: July 02, 2014, 03:23:33 PM
I'm looking to have a cryptocoin made for me (not now but in the future) and since I feel I can do fairly well with some of the ideas I have for it so far I thought that I'd ask on here to see if there are developers who can make me a coin based on SHA-256 (easy to mine with any ASIC for me) or Scrypt (since those coins seem to do well).

Does anyone on this forum know of any reputable services/developers who can make me a SHA-256 or Scrypt based coin as I'm not interested in other algorithms?(I want accessibility/equality to be valued by allowing any technology including ASICs/FPGAs to mine it instead of making this 'ASIC resistant' as I feel it's a losing battle and a waste of time.I see no practical reason for this to be the case except on an ideological basis which some people seem to have).

I have ideas but I can't really post them here as I don't want the idea to be stolen from me (as my IP rights matter to me with every creation,whether it's a film I make or a coin I want to have made) and also the main focus for this thread is to find and discover the right people who can help me get the coin made,not a debate on whether or not an idea is feasible (as you must find someone,then make sure the idea is feasible,then develop it and release it/mine it).

4  Economy / Trading Discussion / Looking to find new ways of selling mining contracts on: June 30, 2014, 04:30:29 PM
Ever since I had listed my mining contracts on eBay,I've been getting business but not as much as I'd have hoped for so I'm writing here to see if there are other marketplaces or sites that will allow me to sell my hashpower (I recently upgraded miners so total hashpower is 1.1Mh/s instead of 440Kh/s) as I've done everything I can (that I know of,reduce prices,offer bonus hours,improve customer services,support good causes,promote heavily on twitter but still not much improvement in terms of sales).

I'm hoping that if someone on here can take a look at my listing,help me find where I'm going wrong so I can ovehaul the business and make things worth my while to run as a small business.I can't afford to price things too low due to the cost of electric.

While I'm here I thought why not ask for feedback from people who are customers to see what sort of things they like/dislike about the service so I can make more sales and make this a successful business.

Would appreciate feedback and tips to improve the business.Thanks Smiley
5  Economy / Auctions / [WTS] Ad space on my travel blog (slot 2) on: June 28, 2014, 06:18:02 PM
I'm looking to auction off some ad space on my travel blog as I wish to finance an expansion as well as make it worth my while to run.
More specifically I'm selling off slot 2 of ad space (most popular slot hence higher traffic and more valuable) on as I would like to start paying a guest writer to expand the content of my site (they say focus on content first then focus on everything else to improve on the site) to cover for when I'm unable to post due to being involved with worldwide film projects.

Look at the affiliates on the site as this is where the ad will be shown.

So to summarise:
1.The traffic a month is currently 200 visitors but is consistently growing so ROI will only improve over the term.
2.The term will be 1 year for the advert (you'll recieve a date when the term starts/ends once I recieve payment,advert)
3.The size of the advert will be 800x600 to attract the most attention without spoiling the appearance of the blog in general (like higher resolutions will)
4.The image format must be a JPG as this is the easiest for me to add with blogspot.
5.The advert must meet standards to be sure that the content is suitable (no adult,scams,misleading,deceptive or other sites inappropriate for a family/youth audience)
6.I'm looking for around 550 or equivalent in BTC however I'll start the auction at 0.25BTC since I need to start selling off this slot soon,so let the auction begin Smiley
6  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTS] [UK only] Gridseed Mini ASIC miner (5-chip) on: June 25, 2014, 04:55:31 PM
Since I'm not getting much interest on eBay ( so far in terms of bids,I was hoping to see if other reputable members of the forum would be willing to buy the Gridseed Mini miner ASIC from me.I'm looking for around 60 (includes shipping) if possible and I'm interested in selling to the UK only (maybe EU if customer is willing to pay for shipping from UK).

I'm including the ebay listing so that you have all the info about the miner you need and it'll save me from typing it all out again here.

Thanks Smiley

Edit:I forgot to mention that I would prefer to be paid via PayPal since it's quick and gives me a good record that a transaction took place in case of disputes (whereas BTC is designed to be anonymous making life hard for me to track my transactions/sales) as well as protection too.
7  Economy / Services / [WTS] Rent one line of my signature each for 0.25BTC month on: June 24, 2014, 07:34:57 PM
I have 2 more lines of my signature to rent out for 1 month and since I want to be paid upfront (for the sake of convenience and to be assured that I won't be screwed over by non-paying people like what happened before).

I'm looking to finance (and expand) my mini business on eBay as well as support a good cause (@seaofchangefilm on twitter) as I want to get a great,world changing film financed (this is the 2nd installment for the Sea of Change film campaign covering issues of mental health and some other issues related to this-TBD) as the previous film was very successful (I don't have a copy but my colleagues do) and getting world acclaim everyday in more countries everyday (mostly viewed by govt's and politicians-the very people we need to change things and have the power to do so).This is the main reason I couldn't spend much time here last year since I was asked to edit the film and manage certain aspects of production (intensive but rewarding work).

I'm asking 0.25BTC since the value isn't too high for BTC yet (so I'm having to ask for more BTC to make the same amount of GBP).The signature must be font size 10 (to fit the lines and allow it to co-exist with the other signatures without pushing out the other signatures in place,since I always host multiple signatures to boost revenue).

The only kind of signatures I don't want are those linked to adult sites,scam sites or those with offensive content (as I have a reputation to maintain as a pro filmmaker online) but everything else is ok with me.

Is there anyone who's interested?First one who makes a good offer get's a small discount (10%). Thanks Smiley
8  Economy / Trading Discussion / I want to improve my mining contracts business on: June 23, 2014, 08:15:18 PM
I've been wondering for a while where I should ask for feedback since I was looking to see if some of my customers on eBay who buy mining contracts from me,can give me some feedback on a few things.Since I want to increase sales/revenue to help good causes on top of covering running costs,etc I was hoping I can ask for feedback as well as advice on how to improve the business so it can be successful.

Look for film22400 on eBay (since eBay won't let me have film2240 as it's the same as my email address) to find my contracts and other items for sale.

I used to sell contracts with 470Kh/s hashpower (within 20% tolerance since I can never be sure about what's being reported on the customers pool),now I've moved onto selling 1.1Mh/s hashpower contracts as pre-orders since I'm looking to fund the expansion more easily.

The thing is I don't know what sort of pricing is acceptable for the amount of hashpower offered in GBP,as I charge whatever people are willing to pay for now but make clear that I'm working with/supporting good causes (like @seaofchangefilm on Twitter).Thing is I want to change the way I do business so I can get more customers/sales/revenue (to finance good causes) as I feel my current approach is counter productive.

Here's what I offer customers:
1.A chart/spreadsheet detailing availability of contracts (since there's usually a queue when sales come in).
2.A PDF detailing my policies (a recent change but this also needs feedback and refinement before it comes into effect in July).
3.Mining contract within 20% of advertised hashpower as I don't want complaints/don't know what info other pools report to my customers.
4.Support good causes
5.Friendly,professional,courteous and helpful customer service.

I'm looking forward to some advice from people who are more experienced with running a successful business.Keep the feedback contructive (no trolls).Thanks Smiley
9  Economy / Trading Discussion / Curious about spending my BTC abroad in normal shops on: June 23, 2014, 11:31:30 AM
I've been thinking about this a lot lately since I'll be travelling abroad later this summer in Spain and was wondering a few things:
1.How can I use my BTC wallet to pay for things in a real shop (not online),e.g If I wanted to buy a coffee,nice food or souvenirs how can I go about this?
2.Is it worth ditching travel money (Euros) in favour of using just BTC from my phone's wallet (since it has contactless payments for both real money/BTC/LTC/DOGE) with the expectation that BTC will grow in popularity in countries that have more favourable regulations towards BTC vs countries like UK/US which seem to focus on restricting the use of BTC?Or am I asking too much for now?
3.How can I find out which shops accept BTC in real life in Spain?Is there an online directory or am I having to just hope that they support it.
4.I've always wondered about changing all my contactless phone payments from normal payments (with GBP/EUR in my case) to just paying in BTC/LTC/DOGE for a week on the basis that I can get a lot of good material for a future film project I plan to make as an experiment on how virtual currencies are changing the world in real life (apart from how great the technology is/idealism behind it as real use applications make or break ideas) as I was previously too reluctant to even use BTC on the basis that I can easily lose money (due to lack of understanding of wallet security on my phone).

Since I wasn't sure about whether or not this experiment should even be attempted,let alone embraced,I thought I ask the community for thoughts and advice first. Smiley
10  Other / Off-topic / Looking to get in touch with someone on: June 20, 2014, 05:20:50 PM
It's been at least 2 years (I think) when I first saw someone post on my old blog ( which I no longer use now) by the name of paulzag (as he's a film producer and I would like to get in touch with him) with this comment (you can ignore the rest).

Since I haven't seen him for a longtime and since he mentioned that he saw my posts on here,I thought maybe posting here might help me find him as well as help him get in touch with me.

I'm looking for help in finding leads on this as I thought if you can do everything else on this forum,why not find someone as well?

Thanks for understanding and have a nice day. Smiley
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Need help in setting up Raspberry Pi with my Scrypt ASICs on: May 18, 2014, 02:14:02 PM
It's been a while since I've been here but that's just because I've been busy.Anyway I've ordered a Raspberry Pi since I'm fed up with the high power use of my old PC to run my Gridseed (5 Chip) and DualMiner ASICs (which use 8 Watts total for around 470Kh/s) and since mining is not as profitable as it once used to be (both from mining directly and selling off mining contracts).The old PC uses 50W idle (connected to the internet) vs Raspberry Pi's 3 watt footprint (saving me a lot a day on electric).

I don't have it yet as I'm waiting to get it posted to me off eBay (thanks to the fact I won the auction at 21 for model B with a case as well.All I need is a USB keyboard on top of that and it'll be great).

I'm looking for an easy to use image that supports the 2 devices along with a easy to use GUI/settings out of the box since I couldn't find a cost effective option when I last made this kind of request for help with the PC and Intel NUC options (they met the requirements but were too expensive for my mining operation).

Can anyone provide me with an easy to follow guide with an easy to flash/setup/use image that's compatible with all my hardware and is stable (as I heard that some of the ROMs are unstable or something on the Raspberry Pi)?

12  Bitcoin / Mining support / I'm looking for a low power PC solution on: March 11, 2014, 08:53:42 PM
I'll elaborate.What I'm looking for is either a netbook,netbox or a cheap motherboard with a built in Atom CPU so I can run all my ASICs without relying on my current PC (as it wastes 80W just idling and connected to the internet for running the ASICs) and freeing up my MacBook Pro (as I can't afford to keep it connected to them as I want to focus on my pro filmmaking work and want to delegate mining to a separate PC)

Here's what I'm looking for:
1.A computer that must run windows (no exceptions) or have a way to install windows if supplied with another OS (as some earlier netbooks/netboxes came with Ubuntu instead of Win 7).
2.A cheap (used) netbook,netbox or cheap motherboard (with built-in Atom CPU) off eBay or another site
3.A supplier based in the UK/EU (I don't wish to deal with suppliers outside the EU due to import tax as I have no paitence with UK customs when dealing with it)

What I don't want:
1.Raspberry Pi (as the system seems too cryptic for me to source the right OS image that supports Bitcoin/Litecoin mining on ASICs,flashing that image with my mac and the lack of clear guidelines)
2.Anything that comes wth linux (as it's a waste of my time and have no paitence with cumbersome/confusing solutions)
3.Anything that costs over 100 (as I'm buying used,not new)

I've found a lot of these on eBay but they keep selling out (I bid a lot of times and lose the auction) so I'm looking for help in finding a supplier on Ebay or elsewhere that can suit my requirements.

Would appreciate the help.Thanks a lot Smiley

13  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / DualMiner help on: February 20, 2014, 12:02:38 PM
I recieved my DualMiner ASIC yesterday and I really want to get things working as soon as possible.

Here's some background:
1.Since the DualMiner miner app isn't available for Macs yet,I had to run it via VMWare Fusion 6 (connect DualMiner via VMs USB port,then run miner) MY desktop PC wouldn't even work with this so had to use my mac for this.
2.I had to install the driver manually since it wasn't automatically recognised like the Dualminer install guide said it would (Win 8.1 Pro on the VM)
3.The miner detects everything as it should but I get this rather annoying error message 'Can not connect to cgminer monitor thread exit' in the miner app even though I got all my details correct ( port 3333 username 1AwgPR37CMjqfHKjLMXmGjEp8wR8ZaizBV pw 1)

Can someone who knows more about this please help me get up and running? Thanks Smiley
14  Bitcoin / Mining support / Getting inconsistent speeds with my Ant Miner U1 USB ASIC (OSX) on: February 16, 2014, 02:06:48 PM
I bought an Ant Miner ASIC a while ago and while i managed to get everything up and running on my MacBook Pro (with Retina Display,late 2013 model) at around 2GH/s,the speeds keep fluctuating wildly (the range will make some of you laugh/wonder) most of the time now from 900Mh/s to briefly hitting 4GH/s.The reason this is a problem for me is because I mine other currencies as well as selling off mining contracts for this Ant miner so it's important that the speeds are reasonably consistent (to avoid overdelivering without extra revenue or underdelivering and charging too much kind of issues).

It's plugged into a USB 3 port since MBPs from 2012 all have USB3 ports only.I don't have a fan as I'm not sure how this'll help the situation.The answer may be really obvious but it seems like I'm missing something.

For those of you who want to know about the rMBP (MacBook Pro with retina display),here are the basics:
OS-OSX 10.9.1 Mavericks
512GB SSD (I wanted a 1TB SSD but couldn't afford it at the time)
2 GPUs (Iris Pro and NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2GB)
Asteroid 0.96

I don't overclock my ASIC intentionally due to concerns about stability/longevity (maybe Asteriod miner is doing this on the fly like CPUs do when they manage power use).

Anyway can someone on here help me get the hashrate to settle down as it'd help me a lot?Thanks Smiley
15  Economy / Currency exchange / [WTB] BTC for GBP on: February 10, 2014, 12:01:36 PM
After seeing the price on but can't use it (as bank transfers have to be a minimum of 2000 Euros when I'm only prepared to invest 150 max).I'm looking to see if I can place a request to buy BTC with GBP when the rate drops to a certain level on the exchange forum here as I find this much easier to deal with.I can't use any exchanges (Mt Gox,BTC-E,etc as the requirements are unreasonable for my circumstances or take too long verifying ID which'll cause me to lose such a great oppourtunity)

The methods I want to use for payment are PayPal (international/UK) and Barclays PingIt (UK only).I know using PayPal may seem strange but I have no desire to mess people around (with scam chargebacks via PayPal) or for them to do the same to me so only reputable PayPal users or those who use PingIt.

Here's what I'm looking for:
1.When BTC drops below $100 (let me know via PM but don't send offers yet)
2.When BTC drops below $50 (send me offers only if interested as I'll only buy 1BTC at this price)
3.When it drops to the rumoured $10 value,everyone (reputable should send me offers in this thread as I plan to buy 30 BTC at this price (Use the address in my profile to send BTC to,Send first and give me up to 2 days to recharge my PayPal and PingIt account wallets to pay up,usually done a lot faster but in case I forget something)

Is this sort of request possible?If it doesn't suit the currency exchange forum,can a mod please move this to the proper location as I don't quite know where this fits in,thanks. Smiley
16  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Got questions about mining difficulty on: February 02, 2014, 01:48:38 PM
I've got a few questions about difficulty,thanks to an article claiming that BTC will fall to $10 by the middle of this year so anyway,when the value drops significantly,does the mining difficulty significantly enough for smaller miners to benefit again or is this just a case of ever growing difficulty that'll continue as long as BTC exists?

Would like some help in understanding this better.

Articles that led me to think this:

17  Bitcoin / Mining support / Ant miner U1 and Asteriod crash my Mac sometimes.Need a fix on: February 02, 2014, 12:21:18 PM
I've just noticed this issue but once a day for the past 3 days now,whenever I mine with Ant Miner U1 ASIC,using Asteriod (since it's the only software on my mac that works for mining) it crashes my mac.

Here's what happens:
1.Mining fine for a while (24/7)
2.Screen goes black,mac crashes and restarts
3.I'm greeted with a grey screen saying 'You computer was restarted due to a problem'
4.System restarts ok and am greeted with a dialogue box saying the same thing.
5.Dismissed it,everything loads fine until the next time.

My Mac used to have rock solid stability before I started mining with the ASIC/Asteriod.

I'm not sure what's wrong and am unhappy with a crashing mac caused by the ASIC.

I would really like a fix otherwise I'd have to sell the miner/stop mining for good.

Would send a log here but not sure how to get that info off my mac.

Here's the og I managed to get so far

Copied it off my mac into a document.I don't know if the answers lie here or somewhere else as I'm not too good with stuff like this.
18  Bitcoin / Pools / Looking for best merged mining pool on: January 31, 2014, 10:22:50 PM
Ever since I got my ant miner Asic,I was a hoping someone can help me find a mining pool that lets me mine other coins with the same amount of hash power at the same time as bitcoin with the intention of having the other coins auto converted into more BTC for me,just like oz coin pool in used to do for me until I was forced to change it.

Thanks Smiley
19  Economy / Computer hardware / Looking for an affordable Scrypt ASIC miner on: January 31, 2014, 03:26:05 PM
I've been looking into this for sometime but since I want to start adopting Scrypt based ASICs for my mining operation and retire that Radeon HD6950 once and for all (yeah I know,don't get me started on how slow they are)

Can someone help me find an option that can ship to the UK (we'll discuss import duties via PM as it's best to know how to handle that)?

I've added the Ant miner U1 since I got it yesterday and it gives me very good results around 3.5GH/s (reported by asteriod on my mac).The room temperature is less than 18oC so this will work with no problems
except that I can only mine SHA-256 based alt coins instead when I'd rather have a good option for both (a scypt ASIC will fill the gap) as well.

Thanks Smiley
20  Economy / Computer hardware / Looking for a Quote on Ant miner U1 USB ASIC on: January 31, 2014, 03:10:57 PM
I recently got my ant miner U1 yesterday from eBay but I'm looking to see what the cheapest price is on here and to see if I can get a much better price than 50 with free shipping (from China) to the UK or not?

I prefer PayPal for future orders due to being more familiar plus buyer protection is a must for me (BTC doesn't protect me)

Thanks Smiley
