1  Economy / Gambling discussion / 100% FREE 100% guaranteed gambling strategy 100% no-loss ever on: November 29, 2019, 07:10:21 PM
100% FREE 100% guaranteed gambling strategy 100% no-loss ever:

Don't gamble.

That's it. You'll never have a losing bet if you don't gamble.

At this point you may feel cheated by the title of this thread, and wondering why this is in Gambling Discussion, and perhaps why I'm wearing a signature of a gambling site if I'm advocating for not gambling. Except I'm not really advocating that, just saying that if you don't want to lose you shouldn't gamble. Feel free to gamble if you accept the fact that you are going to lose. Gambling is entertainment and like many other forms of entertainment it costs money and can be addictive.

I'm appalled at the number of threads in this board and other gambling-related boards that are full of people either directly discussing scripts and strategies, or indirectly alluding to the existance of possibly winning strategies, particularly in luck-based games like dice. There is no such thing. You can't win against an RNG. You will eventually lose and your loss is likely to be much bigger if you don't start with the right expectation.

I'm guessing this is in large part due to a generally low level of knowledge about how gambling (and particularly online gambling) works. At the time of my first encounter with Bitcoin gambling (Satoshi Mines) I was also quite ignorant but it took me ~10 minutes to figure out the probabilities. I'm still mystified why some people don't want to learn how gambling works and at the same time are willing to put a lot of money on their wrong assumptions. Let me know what you think.

(edited to repeat the thread title inside the post so that it would be clear why and when I'm saying you shouldn't gamble).
2  Economy / Reputation / Betcoin.AG claims DT members demanded money to change feedback on: October 23, 2019, 02:59:27 PM
Hello, everyone who left negative feedback in 2016 was based on 1 incident that they had heard about but were not involved with. The one player who was involved with this issue was satisfactorily compensated and continued to play here. Prior to us contacting everyone who left the negative feedback, there were about 15 of these (all from the one incident). Everyone we spoke to reversed their feedback, except those remaining. Of those remaining, they were either unreachable or demanded money to change their feedback. Thank you.

There are 5 DT negative ratings on Betcoin.AG:

Zepher - inactive
Blazr - inactive
dooglus - active
Lutpin - active
TwitchySeal - active

Are the 3 active DT members demanding money to change their feedback? I find that hard to believe.
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Sell your altcoins and tokens TODAY, save yourself the frustration on: October 04, 2019, 05:08:30 PM
You know how this is going to end. You might be trying to lie to yourself, you might be secretly hoping that some token in your "portfolio" that you have 10 million of is going to moon to $50 and make you rich, but let's be real: that is not going to happen. Even the allegedly strong altcoins like LTC or ETH or whatever is cool these days (I've been out of this game for a while) are not doing well and BTC dominance is growing. Which makes sense if you think about it. BTC can do most of what any altcoin can do and the few really useful features that BTC is missing (private transactions for example) are implemented by multiple altcoins, fragmenting their market share.

And the elephant in the room: 99% of altcoins are total garbage. They're called shitcoins for a reason.

Sell your altcoins and tokens. Take the proceeds in BTC, stick it into a cold wallet, keep some online to play around with Lightning and other things that actually matter for real-life stuff, like being able to buy something. When was the last time you were able to use for example Ethereum for something tangible, not to buy some garbage tokens or to play a game?

Do it today. Your grandkids will thank you.
4  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTS] Bitmain AntMiner D3 X11 19.3 GH/s, Nov batch, in hand, free US shipping on: November 10, 2017, 03:16:21 AM

I received some D3 miners a few days ago and need to sell two of them - not enough watts in my garage.

  • November batch rated 19.3 GH/s
  • Tested 19+ GH/s at 537 MHz ~1300W
  • Power supply NOT included

Price 0.22 BTC or 4.0 DASH for one D3 miner (currently two available).

Free shipping to any US address. Yes, even to Guam if you're so inclined.

No international shipping but you can use a freight forwarder at your own risk. No local pickup.

You're welcome to suggest a reputable mutually acceptable escrow but you pay the fees.

5  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTS] Alcheminer Scrypt 205 MH/s, loud and angry, free US shipping, only 12 LTC on: September 05, 2017, 08:07:07 PM

As the title says I'm selling Alcheminer 205 MH/s Scrypt miner.

Let me just say right away that this isn't a user-friendly home miner - it's loud, hot, power-hungry, doesn't have a GUI, and has some other issues. See the details below if you're still interested.

The bad:

  • 2400W at the wall. That's right, 2.4 kilowatts, so you can't run this on a regular 120V circuit. Idle (so basically fans alone) consumes 400W.
  • Those 400W fans sound like jet engines. Not for a bedroom or even a basement.
  • Consequently you'll need a beefy power supply, such as IBM 2880W, and a 240V circuit. 8 PCI-E cables are needed - good quality ones since it draws ~300W per cable.
  • The miner has 8 boards and is rated for 256 MH/s. However one of the boards is defective and the miner has been downclocked for stability, so it's operating at ~205 MH/s.
  • Doesn't have a user-friendly web GUI. The stock software was buggy as hell so it has been replaced with bfgminer. You must be comfortable with Linux command line (via SSH) to use it.
  • Even with the remaining 7 "good" boards bfgminer sometimes hangs on startup. An extra reboot or two may be needed to get it to work e.g. after a power outage or internet connectivity loss.

The not so bad:

  • With LTC rising it can still be profitable (depending on your electric costs of course).
  • Despite the startup issues, bfgminer generally works ok if the internet connection and the pools are stable.
  • I have already worked out most of the issues. Stock version was way worse, if you can believe that. Even the startup issues can be worked around with some scripting, I just never got around to doing that.
  • Price is right and it can be shipped the next day after you pay, compared to the 2+ months you'd wait for an Antminer.

This sale includes ONLY the miner itself with its built-in controller, and does NOT include a power supply, or any cables or other accessories.


You're welcome to suggest a reputable mutually acceptable escrow but you pay the fees.

Free shipping via FedEx Ground/Home or UPS Ground (my choice) with adult signature to any street address in the US mainland, aka 48 states. No PO Boxes. Freight forwarders - at your own risk, I'm only responsible for the delivery to the forwarder. No local pickup.

Some configuration details to give you an idea of how it works:

  • The miner will come set up to use DHCP, as most miners do. Once you turn it on and give it a few minutes to boot you'll need to find its IP address, e.g. from your router.
  • Use an SSH client (e.g. putty on Windows) to connect. Username/password is admin/admin.
  • Use screen to connect to the running instance of bfgminer:
sudo screen -x
  • /etc/rc.local is used to start the mining software:
sudo /usr/bin/screen -d -m -S bfg /home/admin/
  • Which in turn calls /home/admin/ - edit this file to set your own pools:
#! /bin/sh
cd /home/admin/bfgminer541
sleep 5
sleep 5
sleep 5
./bfgminer --scrypt --no-gbt --no-getwork \
        -o stratum+tcp://main.pool.tld:3333 -u username1 -p x \
        -o stratum+tcp://backup.pool.tld:3333 -u username2 -p x \
        -S ALC:/dev/ttyUSB3 -S ALC:/dev/ttyUSB2 -S ALC:/dev/ttyUSB1 \
        -S ALC:/dev/ttyO1 -S ALC:/dev/ttyO2 -S ALC:/dev/ttyO3 -S ALC:/dev/ttyO4 \
        --set ALC@/dev/ttyUSB3:clock=336 --set ALC@/dev/ttyUSB2:clock=336 --set ALC@/dev/ttyUSB1:clock=336 \
        --set ALC@/dev/ttyO1:clock=336 --set ALC@/dev/ttyO2:clock=336 \
        --set ALC@/dev/ttyO3:clock=336 --set ALC@/dev/ttyO4:clock=336

    6  Economy / Computer hardware / [SOLD] Bitmain AntMiner L3+ Scrypt 504 MH/s, includes PSU, in hand, free US ship on: August 12, 2017, 03:38:38 PM

    As the title says I'm selling AntMiner L3+. This sale includes:

    • The miner itself, tested, performing up to spec
    • Dell 1200W PSU
    • Break out board for the PSU
    • PCI-E cables
    • Free shipping to street addresses within the US mainland (48 states)

    NOT included but I can throw in if you ask:

    • Power cord
    • Ethernet cable

    I have the miners in hand, there is no pre-order crap here. Tested for about two weeks. 2 units available.

    PRICE 95 LTC or 1.1 BTC EACH (subject to change due to exchange rates so PM me if in doubt).

    You're welcome to suggest a reputable mutually acceptable escrow but you pay the fees.

    Free shipping via FedEx Ground/Home with adult signature (this is important) to any street address in the US mainland, aka 48 states. No PO Boxes. Freight forwarders - at your own risk, I'm only responsible for the delivery to the forwarder. No local pickup.

    Pictures below. Sorry for the quality - the miners are in a tight spot in my garage.

    7  Economy / Scam Accusations / tarmi - bought legendary account - starting an altcoin with a self modded thread on: December 27, 2015, 06:07:16 PM
    tarmi asked to start a scam accusation thread about him/her so I'm happy to oblige

    What happened:
    There is fairly solid proof (below) that "tarmi" account was being sold in July and likely sold later (November?) as the gap and change in posting style shows. Now tarmi started an altcoin called "coinbuilder" and uses a self-modded thread. Yeah I know this is the usual MO for altcoins these days... still an account sale is worth a red tag isn't it?

    Scammers Profile Link:;u=81301

    Reference Link: (account sale) (gap and then ann) (altcoin) (a new thread for the altcoin)

    Amount Scammed:
    None yet, ICO in progress

    8  Economy / Scam Accusations / ebay seller ankle123 trying to scam selling SP35s on: November 11, 2015, 10:26:06 PM
    What happened::
    I purchase two Spondoolies SP35 on eBay from ankle123

    Scammers Profile Link:
    James Tigert

    Reference Link:

    Amount Scammed:
    None - just a warning

    Payment Method:
    Paid with PayPal, seller refunded and demanded BTC

    Proof of Payment:

    PM/Chat Logs:

    Additional Notes:
    ankle123 sells miners at a low price. When I paid with Paypal (eBay's default and essentially the only allowed payment method) ankle123 refunded the payment and demanded to pay via BTC saying PayPal is giving him a hard time for mining related transactions.

    That alone maybe wouldnt make me yell "scam" but upon further investigation it turned out that ankle123 sold at least seven miners. Probably more since his listings are 2 units each. He received 3 negative feedbacks for the unsolicited refunds.

    Sure enough he's now starting to suggest that he can accept PayPal and ship the miners. Changed his story from PayPal issues to medical issues forcing to sell quickly etc. This is where the alarms went off for me, although it should have been much earlier - when I saw the price.

    I hope someone can connect ankle123 to a username on this forum. To give him a chance to explain his side of the story Smiley
