1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Looking for games to earn/win free cryptocurrency on: April 07, 2020, 01:58:09 AM
Hello.  I am looking for browser based or iTunes app store games where you play for real cryptocurrency, ideally with no deposit required.  Playing SurvivalBet allows me to earn SIN, XLM, or DOGE by staying alive and it really got me interested in other games.  

Not really looking for faucets or casino games and Google isnt extremely helpful in this area.

Dogescape looked promising, but I dont think it ever launched:  https://www.cryptonewsz.com/now-you-can-earn-dogecoin-on-a-new-mmorpg-game/

Any recommendations?  Open to any coins/tokens.  Appreciate it.

While I have always enjoyed playing Xbox, it has helped break up the monotony of each day.  My all time favorite is Call of Duty Zombies.  As a Star Trek fan, I do enjoy Star Trek Online and my son recently got me into Fortnite.

Fortnite has been good for him to stay connected with friends he cannot see while school is closed for Coronavirus.  They just announced we would not be returning at all this school year.  A group of 3 of them play together and they sometimes bring me in as their forth.  lol

3  Economy / Computer hardware / SOLD - WTS - GekkoScience Terminus R606 on: April 01, 2020, 03:53:38 PM
Sold - no longer available.

Putting my GekkoScience Terminus R606 up for sale.

Including 8amp barrel power supply and usb cord to PC.  

Asking $250 OBO and shipping is included.  Ill periodically check this thread to see what the best offer is.

I am having an issue keeping it from auto-tuning down.  Apparently it is a Windows 10 issue based on the support thread.  Not inclined to learn a new OS.  I would rather put my old S7-LN on the solo pool.

Stryfe has offered to escrow.  I will cover the fee.

Any questions, just ask.  Thanks.

4  Economy / Computer hardware / SOLD - WTS Antminer S7-LN with PSU on: March 26, 2020, 07:07:14 PM
Item is no longer available for sale.

Looking to sell my Antminer S7-LN with PSU.  

Asking $150 and shipping included.  Housed in US and only looking to ship to US.

Since I am relatively new here Stryfe has offered to escrow and I will cover the fee.

There is a slight issue with this unit. At times the red error light flashes. When looking at the log the only error I see is a fan error.  But both fans are running fine and have rpm values in the portal. May be a misfire and does not affect performance but wanted to share in the interest of full disclosure.  See pictures for additional information and log / hashrate.

7  Economy / Computer hardware / What is escrow and how does it work? on: March 23, 2020, 03:06:47 PM
Hello.  I have a few miners listed on eBay that I may want to move over here.  But in reading through some of posts for sale, it seems escrow is common and people are asking others to escrow for them.

How does that work in terms of miners?  Thank you.

My previous post was deleted as I violated the rules by placing a referral link in the post itself.  But this should be the right place to post a giveaway.  Reposting...

Hello.  I am giving away a GekkoScience NewPac to one person who watches a video and registers for a site.

I posted in Games and Rounds and Off Topic, but both were deleted.  Where should this type of post be housed?

Thank you.

I have had a few of my posts deleted but actually they are combined together.  How do you quote multiple items (and reply to those items) in 1 posting?
12  Bitcoin / Mining support / Hooking up Antminer S3 to 750 watt power supply on: January 02, 2020, 09:36:58 PM
Hello.  I am trying to hook up my Antminer S3 to an HP 750 watt power supply but something is wrong....

Here is the power supply:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/112855411482

I may not be hooking it up correctly...  There are only 4 power slots but the PSU has 8....  They are numbered P1-P8.

The Antminer powers on and the fan is running very slowly.  

Ethernet lights are blinking and both the red and green lights are illuminated.

When I try to go to the 192.168.1.99 it says page cannot be displayed.  I didn't have any problems with the S9.

Any help you can provide would be appreciated.  Thank you.

Here are some images:

I am thinking I may have a larger issue... I tried another PSU and same thing.  And the Antminer is not showing up on the ip search, and 192.168.1.99 is not found....

Any ideas?  I reset it, but even though when I depress the button is does not seem to do anything except turn off the ethernet lights.  Red and Green remain illuminated.
13  Economy / Digital goods / eBay Gift Cards and Mining Equipment on: December 26, 2019, 08:31:30 PM
I received a few eBay gift cards for Christmas and wanted to use them to purchase some mining equipment.  Apparently you cannot due to eBay terms and conditions regarding currency...

"This code can't be applied to some of your items."

I am guessing these terms are being triggered by mining equipment:

The Gift Card may not be used to pay eBay service fees. The Gift Card also may not be used to buy eBay Gift Cards, third party gift cards, gift certificates, coupons, coins, paper money, virtual currency, or items generally considered to be "bullion" (for example, gold, silver, and other precious metals in the form of coins, bars, or ingots).
