3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Where is the direction of the cryptocurrency in the future? on: December 13, 2018, 05:33:40 AM
After all this time, cryptocurrency continues to show its existence in society, especially in the world economic system,
However, there are still many people who disagree with cryptocurrency and always spread bad news, so people who don't know the cryptoccency are of the opinion that cryptocurrency is bad and risky.
But is it really like that?
No, the bad and whether the cryptocurrency depends on who sees and holds it.
But the problem is here.
Where is the future of cryptocurrency? At least know 2020?
I see, in 2020 and in the future, there will be a lot of projects that die and do not have a price, because at that time we were not focused on making a new project, but more focused on developing existing and functioning projects according to the vision and mission made
4  Bitcoin / Pools / Why have a pool with no fees? I don't get it on: February 12, 2014, 03:00:26 AM
Was wondering this, seems a simple question, wondering if anyone could answer it for me.

In the summer set up some pools but never launched them because of all pools already available.

Was wondering, what is the point of having a 0% fee pool? I don't get it. It costs money to run the pool even, so why operate at a loss? Is the thinking that most pool operators have 0% fee to attract the users, then if they get large, they boost the fee? Can't really understand why anyone would want to run a 0% fee pool, but there must be reasons I'm not seeing.

5  Economy / Service Discussion / WeExchange (BitFunder) BTC withdraw lost on: November 08, 2013, 09:15:44 PM

Hey guys, anyone else have any problems with WeExchange?

Went to move my money out of Bitfunder yesterday.  There was an error message when I withdrew my BTC from WeExchange that appeared briefly. In short my BTC is in limbo now, the withdraw stuck on 'Processing' and no transaction with the given transaction ID ever showed up.

I wrote a support ticket but who knows how long that will take, was just wondering if anyone else had the same issues. Hoping they aren't running out of BTC because everyone is forced off of BitFunder.
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / US gov agencies declaring war on BTC? Timing of recent events is suspicious on: October 09, 2013, 07:57:09 AM

Oh just was wondering if anyone is down for some idle speculation.

I find it a little to coincidental that SR, BTC-TC, Bitfunder, were shut down, and Bitcointalk hacked, all in a really short span of time.

It might be coincidence. But possibly could also see the timing of these events as a calculated (or at least convenient) effort to really hurting Bitcoin by having these events happen so close to one another.

If it was an effort to do so, it failed I think (those caused a lot of grief and havoc, especially for US citizens on those two exchanges)... but is a bad sign. Bitcoin would be fine without the US but of course it would hamper it's adoption at least significantly if the American gov' was very hostile to it.

7  Economy / Securities / Migrate to Bitfunder or Havelock? on: September 24, 2013, 07:45:21 AM
Any opinions?

After the obivious change-up that happened yesterday, have to move my shares to one or the other and I haven't used either.  Anybody really prefer one over the other?
8  Bitcoin / Mining / GPU mining: is any particular intensity more power efficient? on: September 03, 2013, 12:19:32 AM
Hey dudes. I sold my small GPU farm off, except for 2 7950's, which I have in my main rig.  I have my PC on all the time so thought I would mine with them still, even though this is not a dedicated mining pc.

I was wondering if anyone knows, or has a guess, as to what Intensity mining rate is most power efficient. Does anyone know if it basically it is the greater intensity, the more the power usage, the greater the hashes --- or if instead, it is something like using 60% of GPU is better use of Watt-to-hash than using 90% of GPU, for example.

I have them mining at an Intensity of 14 but not sure if there is a lot of point, because power isn't super cheap here. 
9  Economy / Economics / Any good Bitcoin investments to make in this crash? on: July 05, 2013, 05:51:42 PM
Well I'm not going anywhere Smiley   I'm holding all my BTC assets until 2015 at least.

Any good investments to make?

I woke up to see a cpl 100' of my NVC sold at 0.333 and it's now at 0.39 (!).  Sure wish I didn't have those sell orders in last night.

Hmmm there must be some opportunity in this chaos.

What's a good way to make more BTC when the bottom is dropping like a rock?
10  Economy / Economics / Do lame & scam alt-coins leech BTC's fiat value? on: June 16, 2013, 12:27:12 AM
What do you guys think about this? I read some people on this forum saying that the scam'alts, or scamalts as I call them, do not have a negative affect on the price of BTC.

Personally I don't see how that could be. For 9 out of 10 new coins they typically get invented and have a value for the first little while they are around, because they crash to nothingness. And there is also a lot of premining going on as well. Basically these coins just have their value established out of thin air, and they people (often the creators and preminers) will quickly convert the dumb coin into BTC which actually has value.  So the end of this brief cycle is that someone has swapped almost completely worthless coin for a reasonable amount of BTC.

Am I missing something here on how this does not contribute to the subtraction of value of BTC in fiat?  Because if this is the case, the 25+ scam coins trading these days really must be hurting BTC's value.

I don't think -- even if it was possible -- that alt coins should be banned or anything. I just wish folks would not trade for them so much.  The alt-coins should start with values like 0.0000001 and work their way up if they prove useful. Not start at 0.003 for an initial feeding frenzy and dump, then fizzling out 2 weeks later...

Open to any discussion but not dumb flames or stupidly please+thanks...
11  Economy / Auctions / [AUCTION]12 GH of ASIC mining in 15 group-buy shares of B3 Avalons (Coinhoarder) on: June 11, 2013, 11:59:29 PM
(The following has been shamelessly adapted from oaxaca's & bogart's older auction thread.)

Good day. Up next, for auction, is 15 shares of CoinHoarder's Batch 3 Avalon group buy.  This represents a little over 2.075% of the output of 7 Avalons, the four module, 85GH edition.

All told, these shares will deliver around 12 lovely gigahashes , hosted by Coinhoarder (this is 12.35 GH worth of shares, then minus power and hosting fee's of 2%,  should work out to around 12 GH of mining dividends.)

Group buy information:
Original Thread:
Group Forums:         [I'll be putting these shares up for auction in the appropriate thread there, but waiting for a password to be reset.]

Each investor owns a percentage of each of the seven 4 Module ASICs that were ordered. Monthly dividends will be pad out to each investor according to their ownership percentage.
Dividends will be paid after electricity costs, any pool fee (yet to be determined), and the hosting fee are taken out.
Total BTC invested in the group buy: 722.7025 BTC
595 Gh total from all Seven Avalons.

The auction will last about 4 days +1 hrs from the time of this OP, and will end at 6:00 PM Saturday, Pacific Standard Time,  June 14th. 

The minimum amount of shares to bid on is -5- shares.  If there are multiple bids, some for groups of 5 shares, some for the entire batch of 15 shares, then I reserve the right to accept the bid for all 15 shares (I'd prefer to sell them together) over smaller segment bids, if it is higher.
The starting bid is 1.75 BTC per share.
The bidding increments are .01 BTC per share.
The minimum bid quantity is for 5 shares, than further in increments of 5 shares. (i.e accept bids on 5,10,or 15 shares).
A higher number of shares at a given price beats earlier, lower bids.
If escrow is desired, I have no objection. I rather not though and feel it isn't necessary as CoinHoarder and these shares are well -established and I'm well-documented as the owner. 
No PM bids will be accepted.  All bids must be in this thread. But any questions, feel free.
Technically speaking, I own 15.0005 shares, so will be giving this 0.0005 to whoever wins the auction, in accordance to the largest segment of shares purchased (5, 10 or 15).
Winning bidders have up to 24 hrs to transfer the funds over.

Please post your offers like these examples:   5 @ 1.8      or  15 @ 2.05   etc.
12  Bitcoin / Mining / Rough estimate of power usage for mining rig w/3 x 7950 ? on: June 09, 2013, 09:38:28 PM
Subject title pretty much says it.  Can anyone give me a ball park number on how much power is used by mining system with 3 7950's?  

I'm trying to run some cost estimates on my power.  I'm using a Gold rated psu, have a hard drive, low wattage core i5.

Anywhere in the ball park is good. I'm thinking somewhere around 900w to 1 Kw .  Does that seem about correct?  Thank you.

(No Kill-o-watt guy here).

14  Economy / Speculation / Always look on the bright side, May 2013 crash edition on: May 03, 2013, 01:22:36 PM
Lot's of doom and gloom on the board today.

Thought I'd make a thread for any optimists to contribute to.

I'll get started on the sunny-side of the crash:

1) Cheap coins.

2) You aren't loosing as much money waiting for your ASIC to come from BFL and Avalon and those guys making them are more likely to want to ship you the product instead of mining for themselves, if you are a paranoid who believes this.

3) A correction was needed. Maybe it'll lead to a more stable price (however slightly) improving the BTC economy ?

15  Economy / Service Discussion / Anyone else unable to submit a mt.gox support ticket? on: May 01, 2013, 06:11:30 PM

Anyone else having troubles with this?

It worked last week for me.

This week, I click the button to submit a claim, and nothing happens. I tried 3 different browsers. I also can not sign in to , it doesn't accept password, although I'm certain it works and am currently signed into mt.gox proper.

I withdrawal's in limbo and it's driving me nuts with all this cheap coin right now I can't buy.  Argh.. !
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Ozcoin pool hacked, ~1000 BTC taken on: April 19, 2013, 04:44:02 PM
Really shitty situation. Looks like Ozcoin was hacked. Over a 1000 btc stolen:
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Anyone mine Novacoins ? on: April 09, 2013, 03:54:12 PM
Thought I'd give some solo Novacoin mining a go last night just for kicks. I wanted to experiment with solo mining and liked the lower difficulty of Novacoin with my two 7950's, so gave it a whorl.

Didn't have much luck. Does anyone mine NVC anymore at all? The difficulty in cgminer showed as something ridiculous. I think it was 43m !

Then I tried to set up a LP with a pool. Only to find that every NVC pool is pretty much gone.

What's up with is coin?  So basically it was just a big pump and dump scam right?

Is anyone still mining it? As far as I can tell it pretty much only exists as a speculative sorta penny stock at BTC-E ... is that a correct appraisal?  I know its widely considered a shady coin so surprised it is still around at all.
18  Bitcoin / Mining support / Do mining pools offer steady hash mining rates? on: April 03, 2013, 04:45:09 PM
Hi guys. Pretty new to mining.

Question:  does your hash rate generally fluctuate very much when mining in a pool? Is that normal?  i.e can you expect to mine at your card's max at a steady rate, or does it go up and down a lot ?

For an experiment I joined a 7950 to the LTC pool. It is a dedicated mining PC.

My mining rate is all over the place. I'm trying to figure out the issue. I think it is network communication to the pool that is messing stuff up, but not sure. For example, over the last 4 hours of mining, my rate was steady at ~600 k for the most part, but had 2 dips of about 10-15 mins to half that hashing rate.   6 hours ago, I had a dip all the way down to 50 KH/s . 

Is this normal pool behavior ? If not, should I look at joining a different pool, or look towards my own set up for the problem?

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Is their a min. amount of kH/s needed to reasonably solo-mine LTC? on: April 02, 2013, 03:46:29 PM
Hi guys. Noobie question. Did a bit of Googling but could not find any good resources on this.

Basically, for litecoin mining, is the difficulty still low enough to make solo-mining reasonable?  By reasonable I mean to say it is pretty likely I'll be within +/-50% of what I would get from a mining pool in a month?

Is there a certain amount of kH/s that is a recommended min. for effective solo-mining?
