1  Economy / Computer hardware / WANTED: Large quantity of ASICS and GPUs on: April 08, 2021, 02:49:06 PM
I have a requirement to purchase a large quantity of ASICS and GPUs to expand already our existing farms in the USA and Europe.

While we wait for lead times to be fulfilled by manufacturers, we are keen to talk to anybody who operates a mining farm who might be considering selling their operation.

To reduce admin overheads we are looking at MINIMUM purchase sizes of $250k to $500k. We have no upper limit in purchase value. We will buy what you have if your kit is relatively recent.   Unfortunately we don't have the admin capacity to buy lots of smaller amounts of hardware.

If you have ASIC or GPU hardware to sell, please send me a PM.  AML/KYC requirements will be applied strictly at the onset of negotiations.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Altcoin Exchanges - Fair Launches for New Projects on: March 15, 2021, 12:28:59 PM

Over the last 6 years or so I have been developing an idea for a new project.  Last year I formed a team and we have been building a new blockchain platform and consensus mechanism and we are close to being ready to release.

Our project is NFT related and will be a fully fair launch.  I.e there will be no ICO or premine.  The chain and it's unique features will be fully functioning from block zero and the only way to get tokens/coins will be to mine/stake or to buy from miners/stakers on exchange. Our ambition is to drive value through creating a platform that will give developers tools to create genuinely innovative blockchain based applications in a way that no other blockchain project has achieved yet.  Its a bold ambition for sure and one that is easier said than done.  This is part of the reason why we we wanted to self fund and build the thing first without having to hype and sell the idea to the public...too many projects have raised money and failed to deliver.  We had no intention of being yet another one of those.  Blockchain is a tool to improve the world, not a get rich quick scheme.

I am just starting the process of finding an exchange to partner with for launch.  Sadly, over the last few years, exchanges have become very ICO and premine focussed and seem obsessed with how many millions of tokens they will be given and how many Twitter followers you have.  Not many exchanges seem even familiar with the concept of a fair launch and seem 100% focused on ICOs. We're not aversed to paying a significant listing fee but we want our relationship with our primary exchange to be professional and meaningful and part of this is making sure that we are partnering with an exchange that the community likes.

Those who know me will know that I am a crypto veteran who has a lot of years of negotiating exchange listings under the belt.  I was a member of the original Darkcoin/Dash core team and have worked in crypto ever since.  Since then, the exchange market has exploded in size, public opinion changes regularly and the one constant throughout the whole industry evolution has been the important of community engagement.

Thats why I'm here.  I wanted to ask the Bitcointalk community for some opinions.

  • Which exchanges do you like for Altcoin trading?
  • Do you know any exchanges that are experienced with fair launches?
  • Do you know any exchanges that seem less hype obsessed and more focussed on the technology itself?
  • Are there any exchanges you have seen go the extra mile to support a new project and engage with its community?
  • Do you work for an exchange that might be interested in partnering with us?

I'm curious to hear any opinions or suggestions.

All the best,

4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Multiple bitcoind instances sharing one blockchain. on: January 25, 2016, 11:32:50 AM

Is it possible for somebody to run several bitcoin instances sharing the same local blockchain?

If it is possible, how is it done and what are the risks?

If it isn't possible, what prevents it from happening?

I am keen to understand whether there are any full node operators out there who are skimping on the storage costs that come with running multiple full nodes.

Many thanks.
5  Economy / Gambling / [WARNING] A personal warning to you all. on: March 19, 2015, 11:32:00 AM

I have lost over 300BTC through theft and one 20 minute self destructive gambling spree in the last year or so.

If you have a moment to read my account here, I hope to prevent others making the same mistakes as me.

All the best,

6  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTB] Antminer U3 (old or new version) UK on: January 20, 2015, 02:47:08 PM

I keep a few antminers on a raspberry PI for a bit of fun solo mining Bitcoin a bit like an alternative to the lottery and I have decided that I want to upgrade to something with a few more GH/s without upping my power bill by much.

Does anybody in the UK have a U3 or two that they would sell me?
