1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Miner Services Required on: July 02, 2019, 03:47:10 PM

I am looking for a Miner that would be able to test a new version of an upgraded altcoin. The coin use the same algorithm as Litecoin (scrypt) with the difficulty mostly under 1.00 - Nvidia GeForce 1060 6GB mining is preferred, however, the Futurebit Moonlander 2 Scrypt Asic USB Miner may aslo be used. If this fail, any other means of mining on the new version will be appreciated. 

Please send me a PM for the details or reply here if you want me to send you a pm with more details.

                url += 'private/' + method + '/' + '?nonce=' + str( int( time.time() ) )
                req["apikey"] = API_KEY
                req["signature"] = base64.b64encode( API_SECRET, msg = url, digestmod = hashlib.sha512 ).digest() )
                headers = {'content-type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded'}
                r = url, data = req, headers = headers, timeout = 60 )

3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Cross Compile Windows Binaries For Bitcoin v0.10.2 on: May 21, 2018, 08:38:42 PM


I need to cross compile Bitcoin v0.10.2 for the windows executable files on Ubuntu 14.04 x64 for a project.

The source code is at -

All the instructions that I found result in the installation of the source on Ubuntu instead of compiling the source for the windows executable files.

I do not have any issues with the cross compiling of the source from Bitcoin v0.13 - v0.16

Any help with this will be much appreciated

I am looking for a reliable set of instructions on how to compile a Windows-qt wallet that should work for any or most alt coin. I am really not interested in instructions that is seven year old, for that, Google is a good source of information. Coins that I have seen recently and that comes to mind - could maybe work PeerCoin or PrimeCoin or DataCoin


5  Economy / Service Discussion / BTCjam - going crazy on: May 26, 2015, 07:19:02 PM

Well, I suppose some of you reading this post know me from my BTCjam loans taken out for retail savings bonds and mining equipment upgrades.

Anyway, like usual, it is that time of the month where I post my new loan for the next month. To my surprise I found that they now want to increase their lending rate for ฿0.70 @ 2.65% over 30 days to ฿0.70 @ 49.45% for 30 days.

Needless to say, the stupid user agent could only stick to the prescribed text - update your profile and our rates have increased.

Sorry to say, you will see the increase of defaults if you are going to put your bitcoin up with these clowns.

My humble apologies if I referred you to BTCjam as either investor or borrower.

8  Economy / Long-term offers / BTCJAM - 1BTC Reputation Bond on: August 31, 2013, 10:21:08 PM

This reputation bond serves two purposes.

The first as the name suggest, is for reputation building.

The second is to purchase inflation linked retail savings bonds.

Repayments are made from daily mining operations that are sufficient to cover repayments for twelve reputation bonds.

The capital received is used to purchase the inflation linked retail savings bond, the loan capital and interest is paid back daily with the income generated from daily mining operations.

The retail savings bond itself serves as security and shall be redeemed if the reputation bond for any reason fails.

The inflation linked retail savings bond consists of a bond with a three-year maturity the capital and first year interest earned on the inflation linked retail savings bond is paid to the investors.

Capital amounts invested in inflation linked retail savings bonds are inflation adjusted over the term, and a floating interest rate is payable every six months on the interest payment dates.

The capital amount is inflation adjusted semi-annually on the interest payment dates until maturity, the interest is payable until maturity.

This reputation bond is the first of twelve bonds.

Thank you for you time reading this message.

11  Economy / Marketplace / Proxy Buyer Required - for a experimental exercise on: April 14, 2012, 01:42:07 PM

I would like to buy laser diodes and would also like to pay in Bitcoin - the company does not accept Bitcoin.

The items that I want is located at:

If you buy it; 2 x 5 Pack + USPS US Domestic First Class Mail upto 4 oz = $20 + $2.75 = $22.75 or approximately 5.60 BTC

I'll buy it from you on - you may of course add a reasonable mark up and international shipping to the final price.

I'll suggest either a flat fee for smaller items such as this, for example $12 or approximately 2.5 BTC

This is an experimental buy to see if a proxy sales site would work - PLEASE discuss this with me first before going ahead and buy the stuff - this is just an experiment and is more suitable for a US resident.


12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / on: September 19, 2011, 06:31:57 PM


After the claims have all been filed and dealt with we will be releasing the entire MyBitcoin processing engine into the public domain. Our only hope is that the community can improve and adapt the software to all sorts of new and interesting Bitcoin-related things.

Anyone know if this promise will be kept? Saw today that the ssl certificate has expired.

Do anyone have an example in PHP to a make a payment with the instawallet API?

This is the code that I use and it result in a 404: Not Found instead of the expected response such as {"successful": true, "message": "Sent 0.01 BTC to 14Z1mazY4HfysZyMaKudFr63EwHqQT2njz", "message_code": 0}


$url = "$wallet/payment?address=$address&amount=$amount";
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,$url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, 'Opera/9.23 (Windows NT 5.1; U; en)');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST,  2);
$result = curl_exec($ch);
echo $result;

More info on the API is available here:

Is there anyone who can give me step by step instructions on how to set up bitcoind.exe on an xp machine and spesifically how to use the bitcoin.conf file.

While is helpful, I do not fully comprehend the information due to the language barrier.

When this is done, I would then like to access bitcoin using php running on either easyphp or Server2Go or xampp to verify send and received transaction and everything else that would be nice to know.

You are welcome to send me a pm.

Are you planning on buying anything from

I will give you a 100% rebate on the commission paid; up to a maximum of $10 in BTC on the purchase - see conditions below;

The conditions,
1) You need to discuss the purchase with me first.
2) You need to make use of my nickname and your forum username as tracking id.
3) You need to use your credit card for the purchase - PayPal is not accepted.
4) The commission has to show up in my account.
5) The commission has to clear in my account.

As example only;
If you buy an item for $50 and the commission is $20 - you will get $10 back in Bitcoin
If you buy an item for $50 and the commission is $10 - you will get $10 back in Bitcoin
If you buy an item for $50 and the commission is $5 - you will get $5 back in Bitcoin

Any escrow service that is acceptable by the Bitcoin community may be used if your prefer and the escrow cost will be for your account.

As example only;
If you use an escrow service that cost $1.50
If you buy an item for $50 and the commission is $20 - you will get $8.5 back in Bitcoin
If you buy an item for $50 and the commission is $10 - you will get $8.5 back in Bitcoin
If you buy an item for $50 and the commission is $5 - you will get $3.5 back in Bitcoin

The exchange rate at will be used as official exchange rate.

I will increase the rebate if this prove to be a successful venture.

Anything unclear, do not assume, ask!


17  Other / Beginners & Help / MSI Radeon R6850 - Advice on: July 10, 2011, 06:15:34 PM

I want to buy a new card and have no idea what to get, can any one out there tell me if this card will be fine to use for mining when I am away from my pc?

For once in you life refrain from responding with an answer that has nothing to do with the question asked - damn I know it is going to be very difficult for a few of you!

Anyway, I appreciate your reply in response to this question.

Thank you,


18  Other / Beginners & Help / ufasoft - bitcoin-miner 0.13 on: June 30, 2011, 02:35:59 PM

I only make use of the miner by ufasoft (I tend to stick to what I know and what work for me) and I have upgraded from 0.10 to a newer version 0.13 and I notice that mention on the site;

Bitcoin Miner

CPU SSE2-optimized miner.

Supports AMD/ATI GPU.

Performance on Intel CPU: 1 hash per 1000 cycles

Is there someone out there with a Radeon HD 5770 that can test the miner for me to see how it perform?

Their site:

I need to know the MHash/s on this card before I buy it. I can not test it or return it once it is opened and it does not work.

It is still very profitable for me to mine here where I am due to the nice BTC/USD exchange rate and I will have to start small (or someone donate their old card)

Thank you,
