1  Economy / Service Discussion / Did anyone else get a crapload of Bitmain coupons today? on: February 19, 2019, 07:06:22 PM
This morning I had a crapload of E-Mails from bitmain stating that I have coupons.

I know I have ordered some stuff over the years, but I'm wondering if they are trying to clean out old stock for something new?

2  Economy / Scam Accusations / I think this E-Bay seller is a scammer, what say you? Auctions GONE!!! on: December 05, 2018, 01:28:46 PM

Scammers Profile Link:

Reference Link:
Amount Scammed: From me, none.  From others who knows.
Payment Method:BTC only (against E-Bay rules)
Proof of Payment:

3  Economy / Scam Accusations / FortuneJack - SCAM - RESOLVED on: November 23, 2018, 04:55:19 PM

Scammers Profile Link:

Amount Scammed: .15 BTC
Payment Method: BTC
Proof of Payment:Transaction ID: 6c1a7bd530ba888647a895d70caa82101ff17d0400a585e58aab9d9eafe7cbdb

Made a deposit to FJ, I have played here before and deposits were always quick to post.

7 Confirmations and still no deposit.

5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Is there a universal wallet that can read old QT wallet files? on: January 26, 2018, 03:38:51 PM
Over the years I have accumulated a LOT of old wallet.dat files in directories.   Most are dust, but I would like to see if there are any coin in the wallets.  Is there any type of universal wallet that can point to a directory and read any QT wallet file?
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Have L3+'s now, D3's coming in, can only keep one.. What should I do?? on: November 08, 2017, 02:45:23 PM
OK, Here's the poop!!
Right now I have 4 L3+'s happily mining away.  I have 4 D3's that should arrive in the next couple weeks.  Problem is, I only have 1 circuit on 220V and can only keep 4 miners.

Should I keep the L3+'s and dump the D3's?
Keep the d3's and dump the L3+'s?
Keep 2 of each?

Running another 220V line is not an option, plus the noise and heat from 8 miners is also not an option.  So what would you do?
7  Economy / Lending / Need 18 LTC loan... on: October 03, 2017, 01:29:37 PM
Like I said need 18 LTC, Hit my coinbase limit for the week.  Limit there resets in 6 days.

As you can see I have been here a long while and I have had trades with other users.

Let me know the juice and how you want to work it.

8  Economy / Service Discussion / Question about hosting datacenters on: June 13, 2017, 08:41:56 PM
OK I have 4 Antminer R4s, thinking about sending them to a data center.  But all the ones I look at it would cost $120-$150 per miner per month.  How do you house these in a data center when the cost of hosting is no where near what the miners bring in?
9  Economy / Scam Accusations / Like so many other YoBit has screwed me over also. on: March 22, 2017, 02:59:41 PM
Why are they still around?  Put in a support ticket on 1/3/17 for 6 DOGE deposits, included TX numbers and all the info they needed.  Well it's three months later and no answer from support, and no DOGE.  It looks like they never even looked at the ticket.  After many attempts to contact them, I'm giving up.

AVOID THEM!!  Their support is doesn't check tickets.  They are there to just RIP OFF YOUR COINS!!!
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / RX480 anyone have on inhand yet? on: June 29, 2016, 11:12:50 AM
Mine should be here today, anyone got these baby's working yet?  What kind of hashrate are they producing?  General thoughts?

11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / I received a very strange E-Mail this morning, thoughts from the peanut gallery? on: May 20, 2016, 03:03:34 PM
1st of all, There is no way I would DL any software from an unsolicited source.  Just wondering if anyone else got it and what they think.
E-Mail is to a DropBox. Text says:

any kk shared some files with you on Dropbox

Send 1 btc to Alan. Leave 2.7 btc in main wallet

If you want the dropbox link send me a PM,  Not going to post it here.

anyone else receive this?
12  Economy / Exchanges / Is Cryptsy going the way of Mt. Gox and Mintpal? on: December 18, 2015, 11:15:58 PM
At one time Cryptsy was the place to trade Alt coins for BTC.  Well, I have had a 5+ BTC withdrawal suck there for 2 days.  Other exchanges BTC withdrawals are almost instant!  Opened a support ticket and nothing!  A buddy of mine has had his withdrawal stuck for 3 days.

I'm not trying to spread FUD, but am I worried, you bet I am!!  I didn't use Mt. Gox, but lost 2 BTC at Mintpal.

I'm hoping the wallet maintenance will fix the issue, but I'm starting to get worried.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / A2 Mega 110 Mh/s Questions on: August 22, 2015, 11:06:54 AM
OK, I'm on my 3rd A2 Mega from ZoomHash.  The 1st 2 were black and would hash around 105 Mh/s.  This one is one of the silver ones, 1st thing I noticed is that there is no status panel on the front.  2nd thing no matter what I have done, it won't hash over 90 Mh/s.  My avg over 12 hours has been between 87 and 88 Mh/s.  I was really happy with the 1st 2 units, but this one really let me down.

Anyone else out there have one of the silver A2's?  What is your avg hashrate?

14  Economy / Service Discussion / Is a scam? on: October 30, 2014, 01:46:25 PM
Had some extra cash in my Paypal account and wanted to turn it into BTC.  Came across, the website states after a 12-48 verification process the BTC would be sent.  It has now been 5 days.  I have opened a claim for non-delivery with Paypal and they have until the 5th of Nov to deliver or they will refund the money.

Has anyone else had problems with these jokers?

On the other hand, I have had no issues with Circle!!!
15  Economy / Goods / [WTS] 2.5 X 3.5 Hand Drawn ACCO artcards, great artists and great artwork on: August 24, 2014, 03:57:29 PM
Up for grabs are hundreds of HAND DRAWN 2.5 X 3.5 (trading card size) Artcards.  I'm selling these in random 5 packs.  Each set will come shipped in plastic toploaders and in a padded envelope.  They will ship from the US so international is more due to shipping costs.

As far as reputation, I could put these on E-Bay (see seller name the same as my user name) but the fees there are KILLING me!!!  Thought I would give this a try to raise some BTC!  I based the prices on $7 per card, some will be worth less, some more, a few..  A LOT MORE...
If you have questions, PM or post here.

BTC address is 1KcRJyDMYmLN13sfhvQ5x6hpcxSc9DMUor

1 pack of 5 random cards .068 BTC (US only)
1 pack of 5 random cards .08 (international)

Buy 5 packs and you will also receive a Breygent Hand Drawn Z-Card (it's a 8 X 10 drawing that folds to a trading card)

After you send your BTC, PM me with the shipping address and the cards will ship the next day (tracking or customs number will be PMed back to you).

If you are interested in racier card (ie: nudes) PM me.

For large orders I'll do escrow (buyer pays), but if you look at my E-Bay stats you can see I have sold there for well over 10 years.

Here are samples (again these are sold in random packs)..

16  Economy / Service Discussion / Can't login to, are they still in business? Have we been scammed? on: July 16, 2014, 01:50:37 PM
I have 3 or 4 small orders pending at (2 BTC worth).  I have been ordering small orders of silver from them for months.  I know sometimes it takes them a while to ship, but I have always gotten my product.

Went to login to the website last week, put in my username and password and it just blanked out and returned me to the screen.  Tried the get new PW, entered that and same thing!

Tried E-Mailing them, calling them and nothing!

It has now been a week, and I'm wondering if they have bolted with my and everyone elses BTC!
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / [ANN] Help kids with your spare coins on: February 07, 2014, 04:44:11 PM
Welcome to Crypto For Kids.  Crypto For Kids, is run through and managed by Big Burrito Radio (, for WLRA radio, Lewis University, Romeoville, IL for Advocate Hope Childrenís Charities.  (whew)Ö.
Before some of you start posting SCAM (yes I have seen you out there!).  Let me say, we are Big Burrito Radio, we are heard on WLRA radio Lewis University every Saturday morning 10AM CST.  Twice a year the radio station and the university have a fundraiser for Advocate Hope Childrenís Charities.  For the past 5 years Big Burrito Radio has raised over $10,000 for the charity.
3 Years ago, we came up with Island Dreams (  The artist community jumped on the project and sketch card collectors loved the set.  Since I caught the Crypto bug.  I thought what a better way of helping out the charity!  Collect spare crypto and exchange it for BTC, they can then spend the BTC.
The WLRA fund at Hope Advocate is for their family relief fund.  When patents and their familyís need something (transportation, lodging, or just miscelous items) they use this fund.  Please visit the website at ( .   There a bunch of coins listed, if you donít see the one you want, let me know via PM and if I can get a wallet Iíll add it!

18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Need help importing keys!!! on: January 27, 2014, 11:22:50 PM
OK yes, I was a dipshit and didn't back up my wallets.  Got a virus and it deleted my wallet.dat files.  I was able to recover them, but when I load them I get a runaway exception error.  So I extracted the private keys.
When I try to import them into the new wallet I get a {"code":-5,"message":"Invalid private key"} error.

Any ideas why I can't import them into the -qt clients?
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Setting up a solo miner (question) on: January 08, 2014, 04:21:37 PM
OK, I set up a XXXcoin.conf file, move it into the XXXcoin folder in my appdata/roaming/XXXcoin folder.  This is what I have:

I also add -server to a shortcut of the XXX-QT wallet file.
Change the username and PW, run the shortcut and get a you have to set the username and PW error?

What am I doing wrong?  Also is my miner and wallet are on different computers I have to add the addresses to the rpcallowip= (for each computer), correct.

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / 1 Rig with 4 GPUs or 2 Rigs with 2 GPUs? on: January 07, 2014, 02:09:20 PM
I have 2 more R9 280x's on the way.  The question is, should I put them into my existing rig (would need a bigger PS) or build a 2nd rig?  I have the parts for rig #2.  Pros vs Cons?

Some I can think of are:
With 2 rigs I can mine 2 different coins
With 2 rigs I can have them in 2 different locations (not blowing a breaker)

With 1 rig I would get a kick ass hash rate.

Thoughs from the experts here?
