1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / SCRYPT.CC vs ZeusHash on: December 19, 2014, 03:15:31 PM
Hey, any help here?

SCRYPT.CC seems much cheaper then zeushash? Anybody know what the catch is?
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Anyone else depressed by all these alts? on: April 02, 2014, 08:06:08 PM
So many add so little except confusing crap for new players in the crypto world. Do we really need the 500 scrypt coins? Litecoin was enough. Bitcoin was enough! Im just interested to see what others think and to try and find a alt that isnt just a load of crap/scam/copy! We dont need more get-rich-quick schemes!

So. Do you know a decent alt?
or do you think Bitcoin was enough?

Im kinda depressed by all this new business, overwhelmed my attempts at investing! Its so hard to find anything decent!
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Jamboree 2015 (Help me get there) (Begging Thread) on: February 09, 2014, 07:48:04 PM
Hey there. Thank you for starting to read this thread!

I am Noah Stride, 13, and a British scout! Scouting is a youth organization that teaches new skills and lets the computer generation have a real adventure! The jamboree is a meeting of 30,000 scouts from all around the world. I have been selected for the 2015 jamboree in Japan. Unfortunately the scouting movement cannot even consider subsidizing this many people so its up to ourselves to raise the money! The total sum each person from the UK needs to raise is 3300 GBP. We are doing okay so far but have used most of our resources. I now turn to you, the Bitcoin community! My second family. I know people don't have money on them after Christmas but im hoping people have a few bitcents to spare. As for my trustworthiness. I am trying to find a proper way of proving this, everything I have found so far looks a bit dodgy. I will be talking to my scout leader to try and verify myself.

I have some badges I am allowed to give to donators of certain levels. I will get pictures uploaded this week coming. Unfortunately, shipping is really quite expensive to far off lands. So if you want one, contact me and we can establish the shipping costs and work out a minimum donation. If you include your email address I am working on a thank you email and everyone will receive an after-journey message. If you order a badge then you get a letter with the badge, hand signed. These badges are likely to gain value as they are from the Brownsea Contingent. Any scout will know that Brownsea island is the place where scouting was founded. A contingent is one of the groups of young people going.

The base cost of one badge is going to be 0.007593 BTC. This allows for slight fluctuations in price and for the costly wiring back to an english bank account through Bitstamp.

For the moment I can only accept donations for nothing until I sort out the shipping system for the badges. So please don't send bit cents yet and expect the badge! If you just want to donate for the happiness, send the coins to address below and message me with the transaction ID and your email so I can thank you.

4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / To reassure people about the security of the BTC on: November 10, 2013, 07:47:49 AM
Lots of articles claim the BTC to be hacked and insecure but is the dollar insecure for similar reasons. Someone hacked mt.gox so bitcoin is insecure?? That means the dollars insecure, because robberies happen on exchanges around the world all the time. If an online wallet is hacked it's your own fault for trusting the wallet, bitcoin is not insecure, the people you trusted your money with are. So my conclusion is, if bitcoin is deemed unsecure then you are also deeming the dollar to be a high risk currency.

And, the latest news. The selfish miner hack. The problem is, it requires some amount of power to get a head start. Could you keep such a group secret, and when the rest of the network releasises your 12 block streak, the currencies value will plummet or you will very likely be ddosed by angry users of the currency.

Post here if you agree, or we can have a friendly discussion on why the currency isn't secure. If so I am open minded.
5  Economy / Service Discussion / Brilliant Commodity Trading with CEX.io (REVIEW) on: October 30, 2013, 10:35:47 AM
I registered for this site quite recently as the next move in my investment spree. I liked the idea. The site enables you to buy Indefinite mining contracts and Bitfury chips. The mining power has two money making paths,1, it mines on ghash.io and then when the value rises of the hash you can sell it on. The price for 1 gigahash last stood at BTC0.1075. I feel the site is unique and has a nice feel with a sleek interface. The deposit only requires 3 confirmations so is quick to join and start trading. The partnered Ghash.IO site is PPLNS and has had good luck recently.

It also has a handy JSON API and the ability to trade your Gigahash in for a physical miner. This site is a the perfect investment to start on or build your portfolio with.

It gets 4 Stars from me as the perfect choice.
If you fancy joining, help me with the Referral program.

It costs you nothing and gives me a small bonus!
6  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Setup solo mining on a Pi on: September 12, 2013, 04:17:48 PM
If there is a way to do this with minepeon it would be even better? I decided that i would rather hobby mine solo with my two usb block erupters.

Thanks

7  Bitcoin / Mining support / PPS VS PPLNS BTCGUILD on: August 25, 2013, 05:13:39 PM

8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin Nation (Serious) ( A New Country About Bitcoin) on: August 06, 2013, 04:42:13 PM
Before I start please dont troll here. I am taking this seriously.

I believe the ethics of Bitcoin is powerful enough to drive a new Nation into power. I believe in the future we should create a Bitcoin Nation ( Im 13 right now, would like to wait till im older Wink The country would have no single leader, each citizen able to log into a secure P2P voting system to vote on important decisions. A Informer would be elected and their role would be to act in emergencies (During attack and a firing solution is required) and to inform the nation of new issues. I would also like to be the ultimate asylum for future Edward Snowdowns.

To start a Nation there is no specific paperwork or requirements but the 1933 Convention on the rights and duties of a state is a good starting point (http://www.cfr.org/sovereignty/montevideo-convention-rights-duties-states/p15897). Clause 1 is the most important, we would requires Territory, I believe we would crowdfund the purchase of a island ( Forcibly taking one could go wrong) and then declare ourselves a state. Then we need citizens, people who are bound there. The government is the entirety of the island but the final statement is complicated. You need to be recognised, this means holding your ground and having some sort of power. To be fully recognised we would have to join the UN meaning almost everywhere would be forced to recognise us.

Firstly, If I ever took this forward would YOU become a citizen and join the efforts, please answer nicely and no trolling. Also, Would this idea work? Improvements.

Regards
Noah Stride
State Pre-Organisation Informer.
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / The Bitcoin Isles on: June 24, 2013, 05:47:20 AM
I suggest we collect lots of bitcoins together and buy a island before creating a p2p government system. We allow edward snowdon safety and other whistle blowers ( wiki leaks). We all live happily ever after while nuclear war enrages the earth!
10  Bitcoin / Project Development / Extended bitcoin protocol and Bitcoin Name Sytem BNS on: April 06, 2013, 07:46:23 AM
It's a basic idea but it makes sense. I'm thinking we write a advanced client that uses the bitcoin network with a advanced protocol to enhance the experience. The problem is at the moment you rely on the World wide web to find addresses. Bitcoin is decentralized but without the Internet people cannot communicate addresses. Why not add a simple chat system to a bitcoin client? It could eventually be advanced to do anything. Email etc could all be catered for on the backbones if the system.

Interested just say!

BNS would be much alike DNS linking a string of text to a set of numbers or a address. Why not do this in bitcoin. strideynet@walletname.co.uk . Something alike that. You would use the @ sign so that multiple servers could come about. Maybe you could be advanced and using the idea above use p2p. It would make sense as more and more consumer level people are using bitcoins.

Interested just say!
11  Bitcoin / Mining support / 24/7 mining. Best method. Proportional/pps/pplns and any other. on: December 11, 2012, 07:15:24 AM

12  Other / Beginners & Help / Mining for Newbies. don't start using GPU. Is year of ASIC on: November 15, 2012, 06:51:30 AM
Dear newbies to bitcoin.

You may have researched mining. Sadly gpu mining is becoming incredibly unprofitable.
Electricity costs are on the rise and the power a gpu uses is too high. In order to be profitable with Gpu, you must have a rig over 2 gigahash. But.... The ASIC butterfly lab jalapeño is about to come out.
Asics require low energy and produce high gigahash. The first product which is 4.5 gigahash uses 4.5 watts.
That under £10 a year!

I just thought I'd share that gpu isn't the new way forward.

13  Economy / Services / Possible vps oppurtunity. Beat any reasonable quote on 1-4gb vps. on: November 01, 2012, 07:48:58 AM
I'm planning on getting a dedicated with 16gb of ram which I only need 10gb. The server has a 3tb hard drive and a second mirrored drive. It gets 10tb a month data allowance. And 100 megabitpersecond.

So I need to collect interest and see if anyone's interested.
There's no control panel so installing webmin is a good idea.

I'm thinking of starting at this package
1 gb ram
100gb hard drive
500 gb data allowance
Any free Linux os.
Roughly for 8 gbp monthly. This is cheaper then heart Internet who given you only 50gb hard drive and charge 11 gbp.

Now we can work out a custom package etc at a reasonable price.
Now I haven't got this dedicated yet. I just want to know interest. Post hereof you like the price and would invest in this. Don't liek a starting spec just say and I might change it about.
14  Economy / Games and rounds / 1 or 0. The Binary Guessing Game. on: October 28, 2012, 08:51:04 PM
I have built a 16x16 grid on excel. Every Friday we will take a draw. You bet on a location and whether its 0 or 1.
I'm deciding to have it very cheap to join in! But not sure on exact price. I will post a screen shot of the results.
I'm also wondering how to distribute the prize. Should i devise it equally between Winners. Or some sort of fixed prize?
I will be creating a separate wallet for it.

So i want feedback.
Do you like the idea?
Which prize distribution do you prefer?
Price per bet?
How often to draw?
And would you like to play?
15  Bitcoin / Project Development / The bitcoin mineathon for charity on: October 24, 2012, 05:46:20 AM
I had this idea to 1. Help people in need and 2. Raise awareness of bitcoin.

We would every year have a week long mineathon. Where you give up your hash power for charity!
We would donate along as the charity lets us have a thank you on their site to the bitcoin miners and a link to a
Bitcoin website. There is two ways this can be done. We create a special pool with no pay per share. Or we get people to direct their miners to the charities login on a good mining pool.

It would be great if the people with a thash setup would donate just 10 minutes of mining time each day it runs! People could just donate if they wanted. I just think it would be nice to raise awareness of the bitcoin.
If people could post charities and which system to mine with it would be great.
This is a bitcoin commitee project. More about the bitcoin committee in the projects section the the forums.

17  Bitcoin / Project Development / Bitcoin committee! What do you think of the name BBF (better bitcoin foundation) on: October 16, 2012, 04:20:56 PM
    OK the names rubbish! Smiley

    This committee would help bit coin get used in the real world. First we would find projects that our doing what we need and support them.
    We would try our best to get bit coin as a accepted Payment. The only way this can be done is if we get on with it.
    If bit coins became a accepted payment in a few tiny local stores, It would begin to spread. This committee would make sure what the companies need to accept bit coins was there. I'm talking about a Bit coin client especially made for business! We would find someone or we would make software to allow bit coin notes to be easily used in store! Below i will list the stuff we need in order to allow the bit coin to be used. If you know a project that fills these gaps contact us!
    I feel bit coins will not be valued for what they really are unless real world transactions could be made. I need more team members to help with this.

Only together may the BTC Become successful



REQUIRED SOFTWARE/HARDWARE
  • Bit coin business client
  • Note reading software ( reads qr codes from note then sends money on note to the company bit coin wallet!
  • What do we need?Huh

CURRENT MEMBERS:
  • Strideynet: Founder
  • knight22: co-founder (perhaps? I'm not sure!)
  • Phinnaeus Gage: Member?
  • Gweedo:  Member
  • BrannigansLaw: Member
  • Stochastic: Member and name dude
  • WE ARE HIRING

WE also need a better name Smiley[/list]

19  Other / Beginners & Help / Bitcoin Debit Card! on: August 26, 2012, 07:43:24 AM
Just as a survey to see if people like the idea. The card would hold the wallet.dat file on its memory and also it would hold a pin to decrypt the wallet. The card reader would have a record of all the blocks etc.
It would make bitcoins more feasible as a payment solution. We would use java chip cards so they can be programmed. Bt I'm not use wether 80k is enough for memory. Or wether we need more!
http://www.smartcardsource.com/contents/en-ca/p3_J2A080.html


It would mean bitcoins could be used in the real world! Not just inside the interwebs!
20  Other / Beginners & Help / FPGA MINING? on: August 24, 2012, 02:24:06 PM
i am interested in it but really want to find one with the shortest break even!
This one wasnt too bad
http://fpgamining.com/     400 megahash/s at 17.2 watts and it cost like $580.0 and my power per kilowatt hr is 13pence so it worked out at £20.16 to power it 24/7.
But after working it out it looked liek it might take time to break even at it roughly earning 0.5550 bitcoin a day!


SO anyone got a good fpga that didnt take long to break even!
