1  Economy / Scam Accusations / WARNING about KuCoin on: August 06, 2018, 03:17:31 AM
I do not frequent Bitcointalk as much as I use to but find it necessary on occasion to warn other people about POSSIBLE issues.  I have encountered an issue for about $70,000 with KuCoin and their lack of a timely resolution is a bit concerning.

It is possible that they are incredibly slow but last time I was involved with anything like this it was Cryptsy and although I got my funds out, others were not as lucky.

I had 4 withdrawals of tokens, each totaling about $60k - $70k.  One of the token withdrawals was reverted in the following transaction:

I immediately opened a ticket and contacted their online support.  After 3 days I contacted them again as well as their Telegram Channel admins.  I was given the old "wait another day or two"

I have now waited 6 days and continue to get the run around from their online support, Telegram channel and in the meantime I have lost over $35,000 in value on the reverted tokens that I am unable to sell.

As I said, I am not accusing them of stealing (yet), it could be they are incredibly slow or maybe they have been hacked and are trying to cover their asses.  I have no idea but wanted to let others know.

Any feedback would be appreciated.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Sgminer and cgminer use by Innosilicon and Halong Mining - CLOSED source? on: April 12, 2018, 04:26:20 AM
I am by no means an open source legal analyst but have wondered for some time how both Innosilicon and Halong Mining have closed source firmware if they are using open source miners.  I have asked both Halong and Innosilicon for copies of the firmware without any luck.

While I know there may be parts that they do not want to share, I am unable to figure out if they can continue to use it without permission from -ck et al. in a closed firmware application.

For those wondering about the Firmware Updates that Inno publishes, those are not complete firmware packages.

Thanks in advance, I hope -ck can chime in.

4  Economy / Computer hardware / WTS - 7 MSI Gaming 5 with 8gb RAM and CPU on: July 08, 2017, 08:59:12 AM
SInce my mining career is on hold until October I thought I would sell some more of my stuff.  I have the following:

7 MSI Gaming 5 mobos that have 8 gb of RAM and the CPU included.

I prefer to sell in 1 lot and I am looking for $1400 for the lot,  shipping included CONUS.

5  Economy / Computer hardware / WTS - 2 Nvidia Titan-Xp & 1 AMD Pro-Duo on: July 05, 2017, 05:43:33 AM
I bought a couple of Titan Xp to play around with but since my mining life is on hold until October there is really no sense in me having 3 GPU's mining.  The Pro Duo is the watercooled dual fury variety not the new "blue" dual 580 type.

Titan Xp - $1300 each in BTC - LTC - ETH
Pro-Duo - $1000 in BTC - LTC - ETH

6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / ICO for MONACO & TokenMarket - SHADY ICO - ​ ♦♦WARNING​ ♦♦ on: June 20, 2017, 09:13:32 AM
Well here we have a Team that rushed to put together an ICO to beat Ten-X to the ICO and have screwed it up.

The Monaco Team and TokenMarket have crossed the line with adding additional Smart Contracts to the end of the ICO to take in more cash.

The original contract ended at about 17 minutes before the Website Timer.

The Team and Token Market lied to investors and said it was a "Technical Glitch" on the website.

The Monaco Team and Token Market issued another Smart Contract and restarted the ICO to get more investor funds that were trying to make the minimal Eth investment needed to obtain a Black Card

I think the original investors should have the option to have their funds refunded as we were not informed of a second contract in the original contract. I would guess that altering the terms of a contract without notifying investors is illegal in most places.  I know it would be a problem in the US where several members of Token Market reside.

If the Monaco Team is a stand up Team they will see their mistake and try to right it.

I have tried communicating with both TokenMarket and Kris from Monaco but the results were less than satisfying.

I'm Kris - the founder of Monaco. Just opened an account on Bitcointalk to answer all the questions you may have regarding our company and the token sale.
We'll be posting a thread shortly...

In terms of addressing the single most common question: why only 1 day notice. It's actually pretty simple. The single thing that pushed us to launch ahead of our original July schedule was a competitor running towards an ICO with a 90% same value proposition (FX+crypto). Our CFO was at an event at VISA Innovation Centre in Singapore on 11th of May, where he ran into another founder, who basically told him what they're working on and that their ICO is going to launch in June. We made a judgement call to finish working on our ICO within a week and launch, then spend the next 30 days to gradually build exposure and increase our brand awareness, so everyone has plenty of time to get to know us and do their due diligence.

The "Official" ICO thread, aka Scam Thread is over run with noob accounts trying to dilute the truth about the Team involved in this ICO

Please see the links below before investing and Google Search HashCoins Scam - They previously made VaporWare miners.;u=218926

I will sell for $3500 each in BTC or litecoin.  No bartering.  

I will pay for shipping CONUS but outside the USA buyer must pay for shipping.

10  Economy / Computer hardware / Needing to buy Baikal 150mh or 300mh on: May 05, 2017, 06:46:30 AM
I am needing a single 150 mh or 300 mh Baikal unit.  Myself and a few others are wanting it for some research.  I will pay what is needed within reason to get one. 

Unless I know you, Escrow is required.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / iBelink DM11G - Group Buy - Cancelled on: May 02, 2017, 07:03:39 PM
Obviously I have issues with the other group buy and so do my friends that were involved with them as well.  I will lay this out very simple.

I have a contract to purchase 100 units and our group was at 80 units.  We have changed our mind about taking the entire risk with $500,000.

If the community wants to purchase 50+ units then we will proceed with the order and purchase the other 50 units.  Here is what would be needed for that to happen.

1 - Someone like philipma1957 would need to be involved as escrow.

2 - Escrow would need to have the entire amount for 50+ units in his hand by Friday.  

3 - Escrow would be sending the money directly to the manufacturer.  50% on Friday and the balance when the miners are going to ship.

4 - The cost per unit would be $5700.  That breaks down to $5000/unit.  $300 to cover shipping to the USA and from our data center to the buyer.  $300 for us for our time and $100 for escrow.

5 - The units would be shipped to our data center and then shipped out within 48 hours of arrival.  Any shipping costs above $300 would be paid by the buyer BEFORE shipping.

6 - We would not be held responsible for the units until they arrive to us from the manufacturer.

7 - Names and addresses would need to be in BOTH my hands and escrows hands when payment is made.  

NO EXCEPTIONS TO THE ABOVE - I do not want to be involved in the handling of the money.  There is always potential for things to not work out with the manufacturer like delays, inability to produce the item etc.  Neither escrow or our group are responsible for that, the buyer will assume ALL of those risks.

I think that covers it.   If 50+ units are not 100% paid for by Friday the deal will be canceled and money refunded to the buyers.

Our group is 5 guys and if someone from our group backs out then it is possible the deal would not go through as well.  Although unlikely.

Edited to add the following:
Wire transfer to escrow would be the most appropriate to avoid any problems with exchange rates on bitcoin, dash etc

- We could potentially do bitcoin but we would need an agreement of sorts with escrow

Edited again to add the following:

12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / CUDA Miners - What is the most mined coin using the Green Teams Hardware on: April 25, 2017, 11:39:39 PM
I have recently started writing miners and I am having some success.  I have partnered up with another guy that writes incredible code.  I have been working on a New AMD miner for ZEC for a couple of months and hopefully we will be able to release it soon.

In the meantime I want to take a crack at something for the "other" cards (The Green Team aka Nvidia). Grin I was wondering what is the most mined coin with Nvidia hardware and/or what coin is not represented well or at all for Nvidia hardware.

13  Economy / Computer hardware / SOLD - Antminer L3+ (Lot of 5) - May 5th Ship Date - UPDATED on: April 25, 2017, 01:11:04 AM
I have 5 Antminer L3+ for the May 5 Ship date I may possibly sell.  I have 15 total arriving.   I am firm on the details below and I am not looking to negotiate the terms.  If they do not sell it is not a big deal to me.  

I am looking for $15,000 for the 5 units - in BTC.
I will ship the day they arrive to me.
I will provide a copy of the PAID invoice from my Bitmain Account to anyone serious in buying them.

I will pay for shipping CONUS.

I will NOT accept escrow.  I paid in advance and if you are not willing to pay in advance then no big deal, you can buy them elsewhere.

If someone wants to verify my identity, I will be happy to share my contact info for verification purposes as I have done on other large deals.

Will accept escrow from OgNasty but price will be $17,500.

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Custom RAM Timings for GPU's with GDDR5 - DOWNLOAD LINKS - UPDATED on: January 19, 2017, 09:18:26 PM
 AtomWorks gives only the HEX code for a series of values and does not actually give individual values.  It is useful in helping to figure out the timings but it takes a lot of work to actually figure out what those values really are.

For example:
-Looking at the Linux stuff available online and you can find references to things like  MC_SEQ_CAS_TIMINGS.  Under that section there are a number of values/timings (6 values I think).  

-Within Atomworks it gives a Timing like 1250 and then gives the option to change  MC_SEQ_CAS_TIMINGS but does not give the actual 6 timings individually . It would give a string of HEX values that have the 6 values included but you would still need to know the 6 timings.  

-It gives something like this:
MC_SEQ_CAS_TIMINGS at 1250 MHz  Ox456534232424  (those aren't real values)

As you can see it can be helpful but not without knowing what the info means.  Atomworks is an AMD Program and it updates through servers at AMD - unfortunately those servers are not the same as they were and it does not update.  Also it is an old copy and does not include any new GPU's like 390,380,480 etc.  

Having said that it is useful for locating things like Timings and I2C info.  I have actually figured out the individual timings on the straps and I am currently working on custom timings.  I am sure others have the info but not many, unless they work for AMD or are The Stilt.  I may be interested in doing some custom timings for farms but haven't decided.

Just food for thought.....

18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / IS PANDAMINER an AFFILIATE of ZeusMiner, ZeusHash, OXBTC, HalleyBTC on: December 30, 2016, 06:22:26 AM
I am always looking at new mining hardware but stumbled on some info I wanted to post here to get some feedback.  It appears that PandaMiner shares the same phone number as  ZeusMiner, ZeusHash, OXBTC,  HalleyBTC.  I don't recall all the details but I am thinking that those are/were scam sites. 

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Learn to MOD your own GPU ROMs on: October 23, 2016, 03:00:41 AM
We are going to start with the basics.  Please read the OP of the following thread including all of the "Spoilers".  If you do not understand the basics and what exactly you are changing or trying to change then you risk completely screwing up and bricking your GPU.

Please feel free to look through other threads here like Eliovp's thread after you have read the above info.  It will quickly become apparent to you that there are a lot of people that do not understand the basics and therefore are unable to get the results they wish.  

I would recommend that you read ALL of the info even if it seems like you will not use it because it may explain a procedure that you may use later.  Some of the things to really pay attention to are the following:

3 - Offsets
4 - Learn to use AtomBios, a Hex Editor
5 - Learn what ASIC Quality means and the Leakage

Please do not try and flash a ROM if you are not 100% sure of what you are doing.

I am willing to answer questions about modding roms and help you mod roms.  PLEASE ask the questions on the thread and NOT by PM so others can learn from the questions.  I am asking you to do this out of respect for those that have put in tons of time on the threads on and because that is the way they do it and it seems to work well.  

 I ask you to be respectful on this thread and please do not spam the guys with PM's here or on  

Lastly, I am not interested in directly making ROM's for people.  If you are looking for someone to hire there are several people that are for hire that do a great job.

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / RX-480 - 31+mh @ 125w at the wall - Modded ROM - HELPING OTHERS on: October 21, 2016, 04:07:44 AM
Looks like some people just think they are better than others, that shit bores me.  I thought I would create a thread and help people with ROM's that are like me, less intelligent than the "almighty" ones here on the forum.

This is a mod I made today.  It gets 125w at the wall.  Stable for a 6 hour run.

I have tons of different 470 and 480 cards and will try my best to help people.  

I have a few rules I will apply:

1 - I will put people I know and those that contribute to the community in a positive way first.
2 - Higher rank accounts will get precedence over noob accounts.
3 - I have a life and will help as I can.
4 - I do NOT use DUAL MINING and do not test it.  

Tips are appreciated but not required.  I ask you not to share the ROMs I provide.


Proof is in the pudding:
