Im not sure what they are actually called but Im looking for a few different plastic cases for physical coins. I want to see about building a display case and need them for sizing and mock ups. Obviously i dont need them to contain coins. Anyone have a few they are willing to send me for cheap?

2  Economy / Goods / gauging interest - woodworking for Bitcoin on: April 19, 2017, 07:02:38 PM
I have a friend who does woodworking on the side. It started as a hobby but has grown to be a way to make the family a little side money. Most of his sales are online but he does travel to some trade shows and such to sell.

He makes a verity of products from bar stools to butcher blocks and cutting boards, checker/chess boards, wine glass holders, jewelry boxes, and more.

Id like to talk to him about accepting Bitcoin but before I do I wanted to see what the community thought. Currently I think he only ships to the USA but that could change.

Here are a few pictures of his work:

4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Square and Bitcoin on: January 25, 2017, 05:48:52 PM
I saw an article that mentioned Square was accepting Bitcoin as payment. This got me really excited as I know a lot of shops that use Square as a payment processor POS system. I then realized it was an old article and that they only accept it via their online market place. Sad

Here is the article for refrence:
Their homepage:

So I sent support an email asking if they currently had plans to incorporate a bitcoin payment option into their POS system. They replied saying this was a good idea and they would pass the suggestion onto the product team for consideration.

Here's hoping they follow through and can make this a reality!
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Pools (Altcoins) / P2Pool FTC East Coast USA - Zero Fee on: January 17, 2017, 09:38:26 PM
I setup a P2Pool node for Feathercoin, its currently at zero fee (and has been for months) but I reserve the right to change that at any point.

The node is here:

Ive got it on a pretty good VPS and most miners reported good results mining there. Its located East coast USA so your results may vary.

Also, here is a list of P2Pools for Feathercoin, its typically current and accurate.
6  Bitcoin / Legal / Taxes and mining on: January 09, 2017, 10:00:39 PM
Im still trying to figure out how taxes work in regard to mining. My thought and understanding at this point is that its treated like any other income - like a business and taxes as such. Once this is fully enforced how will it effect mining operations? Id think bigger mining DCs will have a hard time due to the thin layer of profit to begin with. They have to convert BTC to fiat to cover costs where a home miner doesnt so much. A home miner can 'hide' by never converting to fiat and leaving no paper trail.


Can anyone link me to more info on taxes related to mining?

What all movies are out there that appeal to those who are a bit techie?

We have things like Starwars and Star Trek but Im asking more about stuff like
Hackers -
Swordfish -
Citizenfour -
Snowden -
Zero Days -

I just saw Snowden a week or so ago, its pretty good. Even my non-techie girlfriend was intrigued and had a ton of questions after the movie.

There are some Bitcoin movies as well but I cant remember their names...

What else?
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Is the current difficulty included in blockchain? on: March 03, 2016, 06:15:50 PM
For example, if I lookup block 1492 is there any information included with the block in the blockchain that would give the difficulty at the time the block was mined?
10  Economy / Goods / WTS - original Nintendo Wii - hacked - includes 220+ games on: December 08, 2015, 02:00:11 AM
I don't know what it would be worth, or even if it's ok to sell it here. Based on other items I've seen for sale I don't think this is too bad....
Anyway, I have an original Wii for sale. It's been hacked and includes the homebrew channel and has a 500gb external hard drive loaded with about 228 games. I'm not totally sure the number but it's around 228.

It's being sold as the console and hard drive only, no cables or controllers included.

If interested make me an offer. I know the Wii is older but some of the games are fun to play still. I can post pics or whatever on request.

I'd be shipping from the US.
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin mentioned in TV commercial on: November 17, 2015, 02:12:10 AM
So on the Science channel there is a commercial for a show called All American Makers and they mention bitcoin. I don't remember the exact wording but basically they replace the word cash with bitcoins in a sentence. Pretty cool, anyone else see it?

EDIT: link to video
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin accepting bars in Pittsburgh, PA? on: October 15, 2015, 10:29:14 PM
I looked but came up short. Are there any bars or other food places in Pittsburgh that accept bitcoin? I thought there were a few but I can't find any. I'm going there this weekend and would like to spend some satoshi.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Steve Beauregard CEO of in my home town! on: October 14, 2015, 06:11:06 PM
So apparently Steve Beauregard of is going to be doing a talk this Friday at a college in my hometown! I know there are very few Bitcoiners in this area but it'll be neat to see how many actually show up for the talk.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Another "bitcoin pizza" thread on: October 07, 2015, 08:07:11 PM
So everyone knows the story of the 10,000 BTC pizza a few years ago, lots of threads on it, yada yada yada... I saw a thread today and had a thought.

I looked back and realized that the "10,000 Bitcoin pizza" was bought from Papa Johns (I know the bitcoin wasnt actually spent at Papa Johns). My thought was what if Papa Johns used this in marketing and started accepting Bitcoin. That would be so great! They are a large well known company thats spread all across the US. It would provide legitimacy, expose a larger number of people to it and would allow people to use bitcoin in the real world rather than just online. They could market as the first ever bitcoin transaction and/or tie in something about how much those 10,000BTC would be worth (as if it were invested).

I wanted to suggest this but their website says they only accept suggestions from internal.
Does anyone know someone who owns/works at a Papa Johns and could sell them on the idea?

15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / care to explain the 'stress test'? on: September 10, 2015, 05:52:50 PM
Thread for reference:

Its my understanding that a bunch of addresses were created and thousands of tiny transactions were sent to these addresses. The public keys to said address are now being made public and lots of people are all trying to import the keys and send the coins to their own addresses. Correct? How does this spam the network? is it by the sheer number of people trying to spend the same coins or is it by the number of transactions in each private key?

Im thinking there are a few different pieces of this that all came together to allow this to happen and I dont know if I fully understand any of them.
16  Bitcoin / Mining support / Solo mine with on: July 08, 2015, 02:36:57 PM
I used to solo mine with the older bitcoin wallet but now that Ive updated to I can not. Nothing else was changed on the computer other than the updated Bitcoin Core. Was something changed with this version to disallow mining? I get an error about the username/password being wrong however it was not changed and I can confirm its correct.

17  Other / Off-topic / Trip to Outer Banks, NC (OBX) Bitcoin accepted? on: June 24, 2014, 05:07:30 PM
Im headed to Outer Banks soon and am curious if anyone knows of any shops/bars/grills that accept Bitcoin there. doesnt show much and Google showed one restaurant but their website is under maintenance.
18  Bitcoin / Pools / p2pool on free AWS tier? on: June 13, 2014, 01:17:52 AM
Has anyone tried setting up p2pool on Amazons AWS free tier? I have been trying but cant get it to work right. I think the problem is that it doesnt have enough RAM but I cant find any specifics as to how much is required. Any thoughts?
19  Economy / Goods / [WTS] - Blockchain on a USB stick on: June 10, 2014, 10:42:10 PM
Ive seen this mentioned a number of times but never saw anyone start selling them, so I'll do it!

I am selling a copy of the blockchain on a 32GB USB 3.0 stick. The current Bitcoin blockchain is about 21GB which is a fair amount to download if you have a slower connection or a connection that has a monthly cap. There are other wallets you can use that do not require the entire blockchain but if you would like to stick to the original Bitcoin Core wallet this is for you. Plus you get a nice 32GB USB 3 drive.

I only have a few full blockchains at the moment but can download more if there is demand.


The price is $30 (~.0459BTC) for a single blockchain and $3 (~.0046BTC) for each additional blockchain added to that drive (until the drive is full). Shipping to the US is included, international will be extra.

So if you wanted all 6 listed above it would total $45 (~.0689BTC) shipped.

I will accept BTC, LTC, FTC, XMP, or Vert.

One question Im sure I'll get is "How do I know there is no virus on this stick?"
My only answer is "Give me a way to prove to you it is clean and I'll try and make it happen." My computer is clean and free of virus/malware, it is a fairly fresh install of Windows with an up to date virus protection.
Ive been a member here on this forum for nearly 2 years, I realize this does not give me a lot of credit but its something.

If you are interested PM me what blockchain you want, a shipping address and what crypto you want to use. I'll reply with a payment address and will let you know when it ships.

20  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTS] GPU and GridSeed combo open rack - stackable on: April 05, 2014, 04:20:46 PM
I ordered 4 units back on Black Friday and I just received them today. Long story short - nice company, great product, but shipping from South Africa is a bit slow if you choose the cheapest option (Like I did). Nothing negative towards them, I picked the shipping method but I no longer have a need for these racks.

I ordered 2 'Vitalia - standalone' and 2 'Giorgina - Stackable'. The Vitalia will stack on top of the Giorgina giving you two towers two racks tall. Each rack can hold 6 GPUs AND 10 GridSeed ASICs (with the fan, 16 without it). These racks were not designed for the GridSeeds but they fit nicely right behind the motherboard.

I only assembled one for pictures and to verify the quality of the product. Im very impressed. Everything fits together very snugly and the racks are very solid. I feel I could stand on it as long as I didnt put all my weight on a single bar. If I did not already have my systems setup I would keep these, the fact that GridSeeds fit is just a plus!

The 4 units are priced just shy of $350 on (I have the bolt kit and thumb screws if you want to check yourself) without shipping. I'd like to sell them for near that price. Make me an offer and send me your zip and I'll get an idea on shipping. Id like to sell all 4 together but if there are no offers for that I can sell them as singles.

I'll accept BTC or LTC and escrow is available if you arrange, pay the fee and if I approve of the person.

Depending on what video cards you use, you could get 10+MHs per rack!

Now, on with a few pictures.
( has more pics and info)
