1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Sending from Core to Electrum on: November 06, 2017, 12:14:39 PM
I recently had a snapshot of BTG fork which supposedly has replay protection on my wallet - 2 addresses contain BTC within the wallet

For the B2X fork I don't want the same snapshot on those two address (just paranoid I might lose my BTC)

My idea was to install electrum, then send BTC from my current core wallet to an address in electrum across the network.

I have seen there are other ways such as exporting private keys and then sweeping and broadcasting, but not sure if this could cause issues with replay protection and the upcoming fork.

What method are other users using for the BTG and B2X forks?

Hi, I recently had BTC in my core wallet during BTC Gold fork and was snapshotted.  I don't want to use the same address for the snapshot of B2X.

What I was planning to do was install Electrum, then send my BTC to a receiving address in the Electrum wallet.  The Electrum wallet address will then be snapshotted for the B2X fork.  Then send BTC back to a different address in core once the snapshot occurs

Is this the way other users are managing the forks, and is this a good and secure way to do this?

Then I could use the private keys from core to claim by BTC gold, then use the private keys from Electrum to claim B2X.  Then keep the BTC in core in a separate address in the wallet.

4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / mining hardware recommendations on: April 01, 2014, 07:12:38 AM
Hi,

Could someone please recommend profitable mining hardware for scrypt coins that is up to $2000?I am looking to mine scrypt coins, present ones and upcoming ones in the future.

I have looked into gridseed, alpha technologies, KNC miner, dual miner.  But have not come to a decision.  Is there a general consensus on a particular mining hardware that most people go for, or any recommendations on one that I've missed off the list?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I'm new to mining, and had some money in the bank that isn't earning much interest.  I am going to purchase the Neptune second batch for $9,995.  Is this a worthwhile investment?  My electricity costs are $0.25 per Kwh.

I understand that the Neptune will mine at between 3,000 - 4,800 Giga Hashes per hour.

I've used BTC calculators on the web, that show break even point after 5 days, then the rest is profit after energy costs.  I understand that difficulty will increase in the future, but not sure how much that will impact earnings, but the Neptune should be somewhat futureproof with it's proposed hashrate.
