1  Bitcoin / Hardware / S4 xoooooo ooooooo..... on: October 26, 2015, 09:25:13 PM

I seem to be having a problem with my S4.   Here is what miner status is showing.  Can anyone tell me what exactly the problem might be? It is still giving me a decent hash rate but fluctuates between 1750 and 1950. Thanks!

2  Bitcoin / Pools / CDF: Cumulative distribution function... on: October 18, 2015, 09:37:18 AM
I am trying to understand the difference between 1 day, 7 day, 30 day pool luck and CDF.  Can someone help me understand?  If one day luck or seven day luck is really low why would CFD be above 63%?  Thanks.
3  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Mining profits over the next six months... on: October 11, 2015, 04:40:09 AM
I've noticed recently that mining profits in Bitcoin have gone down.  They are still the same in USD, if not more, but slightly lower on a BTC basis.  I'm curious what people think will happen to mining profits over the next six months taking into account all of the fundamental developments affecting Bitcoin.  If someone is making 1 BTC a month today with their hash rate what do you think it will be in six months based on your projections?  I know there are a lot of variables and this is a tough question to answer but I'm still interested to see if anyone is willing to take a shot at it.  Thanks!
4  Economy / Speculation / Where will the price of BTC be at the end of 2015? on: October 11, 2015, 04:34:30 AM
I would like to get a community opinion on the direction of Bitcoin over the next few months.  I've created a poll with various ranges so we can get an accurate picture of what the general consensus, or lack of consensus is.  Feel free to explain your reasoning.  Thanks for participating!
5  Bitcoin / Hardware / Safe to plug in two PSUs into one outlet? on: October 09, 2015, 03:55:34 AM
I have a 1000watt PSU and a 750 W PSU I want to start running.  Is it safe to plug them both into the same one wall outlet?  Is there any danger of overheating or fire and should I use a surge protector?  Thanks.
6  Bitcoin / Pools / Anyone else get horrible results today on Bitmain? on: October 01, 2015, 06:30:16 AM
I am signed up at Bitmain's PPLNS pool.  Today I got a little over half of what I normally get.  It is predicting tomorrow I will get half of my normal amount.  Has anyone else had any problems?  Thanks.
7  Bitcoin / Legal / Best Countries for Bitcoin Businesses on: September 28, 2015, 05:11:25 AM
What are the best countries in the world to start and run bitcoin businesses?  For example, crypto-equity exchanges, bitcoin gambling, sites like, etc.  Are there any like this that welcome these sort of businesses and can these businesses avoid scrutiny from foreign regulators or do they still have to comply with the regulations affecting their customers?  Thanks!
8  Bitcoin / Hardware / How to Connect S5 to Corsair CX750M on: September 25, 2015, 10:06:37 PM

I was wondering if someone could help explain how to connect my S5 to this Corsair CX750M. 

It came with two of these cables (dual 6+2 pin PCI connectors)

Do I plug them into these two ports? 

If so, how do I know where to plug them in on my S5?  Thanks!

9  Economy / Service Discussion / Prosper buys BillGuard on: September 24, 2015, 12:42:43 PM

Prosper just bought BillGuard.  This is a clear effort by P2P lending platforms to partner with networks of individuals that will make good candidates as lenders.  Advertising loans doesn't work because you just get people who can't get money, but want it- therefore, most of the time can't pay.  So, lending networks have to find "customers" differently.  If BTC P2P networks start finding companies aggregating consumers like BillGuard that use BTC, and converting them to private banking with similar mergers, it would be a smart move.
10  Bitcoin / Hardware / Custom Miners Supposedly Better Than S7? on: September 24, 2015, 08:27:50 AM
I was shown a miner designed by a company that designed "custom miners" that supposedly draws 0.100 Watts per 1GH/s and seems to be way more cost/efficient than the S7.  Several people have said it looks to good to be true.  Has anyone every heard of stuff like this or tried it?  A friend ordered one and is going to try it.  If it works I will let you know.
11  Bitcoin / Hardware / Cat5e versus Cat6 on: September 23, 2015, 05:40:06 PM
What do I need to buy for my miners?  Cat5e or Cat6?  Thanks!
12  Other / Politics & Society / Russia/ Syria on: September 23, 2015, 11:47:11 AM
What is the Russian objective in Syria?  It seems like their presence there just complicated things in the region dramatically and it is hard to tell what their real intentions are.  Assad doesn't have popular support and to support Assad is to commit to an endless civil war.  Is that their objective?  Are they waiting for Assad to fall so they can be the predominant power on the ground and assign a new ruler that is friendly?  What's the play?
13  Bitcoin / Hardware / Will this PSU work for my new S5? on: September 23, 2015, 12:50:31 AM
Hey everyone,

I was hoping someone could help me with a question I have.  I just ended up with a new S5 recently and need to get a PSU.  I saw this item selling on eBay...

Does that seem like a good PSU to you for an S5?  They said to turn it on and off I have to "remove the jumper on the PCB board." Also, it doesn't come with a power cord.  Apparently this one will work...

Does that seem legit to you?  Is there a better one you would recommend for the price considering that is free shipping?  Do you think I could risk bricking my miner with that PSU?

14  Economy / Service Discussion / CreditStats to Collect Data / Enforce Defaults Across Platforms? on: September 19, 2015, 04:46:39 AM
Did anyone else get this email from BTClend-(BTClend)?

I can't find any information on this company.  It sounds like a great idea but I'd love to be able to check out a link to there website.  Can't find a think about them.

"Cryptocurrency Credit Score

CreditStats its a new independent agency and BTCLend has become its first credit reporting integration. BTCLend will now be reporting defaulted loans to CreditStats. We are very exited to be reporting to CreditStats. Not only defaulted loans but also payment history. This will be beneficial for those with good payment history and will also make sure that our investors do not get tangled with recurring offenders.

Why CreditStats?

Credit Score and Loss Recovery

CreditStats will hold BTCLend, Btcjam and Bitlendingclub credit.
CreditStats will allow for users to report of defaulted loans.
There will be a defaulted loans marketplace where collection agencies will bid for your loan recovery.
And best of all, CreditStats will allow you to check a users credit before investing.  CreditStats will become the one place where to check anyone's cryptocurrency credit and collect on those with delinquent loans."
15  Bitcoin / Legal / Cryptostocks on: September 06, 2015, 06:14:22 PM
A major P2P lending platform has hinted that they plan to allow anyone to IPO bitcoin-based shares in an enterprise.  They say the listing authority where they are based is not interfering.  I have heard that some US entities that previously issued crypto assets have received letters from the SEC requesting information.  I was wondering, what are the legal requirements, etc. for a US entity that is issuing a crypto-IPO on a foreign exchange?  Anyone know?  Thanks.
16  Bitcoin / Hardware / How to add a miner to a PSU with a modular cable... on: September 04, 2015, 01:50:55 PM
I have a 1000 watt power supply with hookups for modular cables but it didn't come with any but I think I know what I need to buy for a Antminer S3 - a 12 pin to dual 6+2 pin pci connector.  What I don't know is what port to put it in once I get one.  Does anyone know?  This is an Enermax1000 87+EWT.  Thanks!

17  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / S5+ versus S7 batch 1 on: September 04, 2015, 06:44:25 AM
Question answered.  Thanks!

I have a question for anyone who can answer this...

I see that Bitmain is about start shipping the S7.  It is saying selling for almost 2k and it says that it does 4860 GH/s.  Granted, it is twice as energy efficient as the S5, but is it really worth the price consider that the S5 is 1/4th the price?  What do you think?  How can you justify the price?  Thanks.

Edit:  On BitMain website I was confusing the price of the old S5 for S5+  Now I understand.  Thanks.

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / [Doge] Such Chance! Much gamble, many invest! Hi/Lo Game - Investments - Opensrc on: June 12, 2014, 08:49:04 AM
Hey guys, after much testing, poking, and prodding, the software that runs my new game, Such-Chance, is finally ready!

Such-Chance is a Hi/Lo type game, but what sets it apart from the rest of the crowd is that it's fully open source! The entire engine runs on investments as well, so the more invested, the more you can bet! I'll come back later on and spruce up this thread a bit, just wanted to put this out there for now!

1% House edge, and it is provably fair, you can even set your own seed if you wish.

Come try it out at

Edit: Might as well explain the investment scheme.. It's pretty simple, you deposit some doge (please take the time to set up a username and password), after it shows up in your account, go to the Invest tab, enter the amount you wish to invest, and click "Invest". The reverse with Divesting. The percentage of your investment vs. the entire invested amount is your profit percentage.

An example as follows: Bob invests 5k, John invests 5k. Total investments are 10k, with Bob earning 50% and Tom earning 50% of the profits.
