2  Bitcoin / Hardware / Stanford process makes high-performance Gallium arsenide circuits cheaper on: March 27, 2015, 02:10:31 AM

Silicon is typically used in solar cells and computer chips. Gallium arsenide is an alternative material with many advantages. But it costs too much. A new process would reduce its various manufacturing costs.

3  Other / Meta / How to discuss hardware manufacturers was Re: BFL fucked us over again on: November 17, 2014, 09:46:18 AM

Bruno can start his scam accusation thread and post whatever he wants in scam accusations.
Serious question: Why is it only allowed in Scam Accusations?

Will that change if they are ripped to bits by the FTC?


Also why the change of attitude towards BFL specifically?
They were a visible train wreck long in advance of this new restriction. Alot of people (including BFL) had continued to open threads advertising their wares even when it was obvious they had trouble delivering within expectations.

So I guess my question is why the change in attitude after this train wreck has already begun to rust from all the rain?

What is gained by limiting it now after all the spilled milk has left the container?
Why can't we at least apply for self moderated threads in this section pertaining to BFL? (Within controlled reason)

Hashfast failed outright and they still seemingly have privileges no longer afforded to BFL....?

I implore you to find where I've said anything that says bfl is good in any way for, well, anyone or anything. They can burn in hell for all I care.

Just because we're sticking strictly to the forum rules doesn't suddenly make us some kind of dick sucking manufacturer lovers. Heck this BFL fucked us over thread has been allowed for as long as I can remember...
Where can the forum rules be found?

6  Bitcoin / Hardware / Restructuring cooling capacity for Avalon on: July 10, 2013, 03:27:20 AM

I am about to buy some Fan upgrades for my Avalon but I need some advice.

I have settled on three of the Gentle Typhoon series (5400rpm) of fans which seem to have better static pressure and more airflow (CFM):

I need some advice though on the internal setup. The Gentle Typhoon is a 3 pin fan. The power for the fan is being pulled from a molex connector via the PSU. So power isn't the issue, fan control is. I have been looking over the photo's provided by Avalon for the control unit:

I noticed that the unit has 5 headers and they all seem to be 4pin. I know I can just connect the 3 pin into it. What I don't know is if this simple board does any kind of voltage regulation for 3 pin fans?

I realize PWM was invented because you could modify the RPM by a signal rather than by a voltage such as 3 pin fans had been.

So my first question is, Does this control unit properly apply 3 pin voltage regulation for 3 pin fans?


My second question is: I believe that 2 out of 3 fans used in Avalon Batch 1 were PWM enabled Deltas. Any idea whether the third (transparent fan) is also PWM or if it is a standard 3 pin fan?

I intend to overclock this Avalon and I want to minimize the risk from overheating. Can anyone who has taken apart their Avalon (batch 1 & 2) please fill in the gaps for me on these particular questions?
7  Economy / Currency exchange / BOA/PayPal/OKPay for 3 BTC [ESCROW Enabled] Buy BTC with Confidence on: June 22, 2013, 07:50:02 PM
I am starting a small Exchange service on Local Bitcoins.

I take Bank Of America Online Transfers and Cash Deposits from any Bank Of America teller.

I will soon support Wells Fargo and Chase Bank transfer in the near future.

Removed Link

What Escrow do you use?
I use the Escrow system built into . They provide automated escrow services and security built into their site.

How does this Escrow work?
Sellers (me) deposit money into a account. Then when a purchase occurs (by you) the Escrow service deducts the money from my LocalBitcoins online wallet and waits until Buyer and/or Seller indicate that the other party has done their part of the  transaction in good faith. The funds (BTC) are then automatically released to you. As a Seller, I don't have control over the coins after they enter into the escrow so there is no way to steal anything.

If there is ever a problem you can start a dispute and localbitcoins staff will look into it and release funds as appropriate.

We also (as a Seller) cannot sell what we do not actually have deposited, it is that simple.

What service are you providing?
If you are using Bank of America - Online Transfers (From an BOA account to a BOA account) I will wait until the payment clears the first time. Then release the escrowed bitcoins to you. (usually this will take anywhere from a few hours to the next business day.)

If it is your 2nd or nth time buying BTC from me then I won't wait until the payment clears. I will release the BTC from escrow as soon as I see the payment coming in. Usually the turn around time from your payment being sent to receiving your coins is about 15 to 20 minutes.

What if I go to a Bank Of America Teller and deposit my cash directly into your BOA account?
We will then immediately release the funds upon seeing the transfer from the teller. This is called a Bank Of America - Cash Deposit and it clears almost immediately. The release of the BTC from escrow is then made within minutes, it is pretty fast.

What are the fees?

LocalBitcoins charges very small fees for the escrow service. There are also some tiny fees associated with Bitcoin Transfers. So the difference might be anywhere from 1% to 0.25%. I have decided I will cover the fees for you. I will, as they are pretty small fees. I will update the FAQ as soon as I have more info.

Please see this link for more information:

How often do you monitor your trades?

I monitor my trades around the clock. On weekends, there may be a brief delay in getting back to your questions.


Feel free to leave feedback about your experience. Current limits per buyer are set to 250$ per transaction. I will lift the limits as soon as I am comfortable with doing larger trades.
8  Economy / Trading Discussion / Bridging the MTGOX to BTC-e divide. (Using Ripple) on: May 30, 2013, 04:43:19 PM
I have been reading up on ripple and while I still don't understand all the details. Is there a method to bridge the divide between BTC-e and MTGOX?

I can sell my $$$ for BTC at the lower rate at BTC-e Exchange.

I can then transfer those BTC to MTGox pretty easily. Selling the BTC for a higher USD value on MTGOX is incredibly easy as there is almost always a 10 dollar difference between the two exchanges.

But how would I go about using Ripple to Transfer those Dollars back to BTC-e without going through OkPay or any of the other standard services? I understand I'd need a gateway....but is there anyone who can give me an idea as to how to bridge this divide between the two exchanges by using the Ripple system?
9  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTB] 1 Avalon Hashing module with cable. on: May 01, 2013, 03:09:40 AM
I am looking to buy 1 Avalon module (22Gh/s) for an Avalon. I will do all steps to verify a person actually has one.

At the moment, I am only accepting offers to see if the quotes are worthwhile and not uber exaggerated. Post your offers in BTC.

Sale must include a working hashing module (not damaged or dysfunctional) and include the special cable to connect the extra module. Keep in mind Avalon will be releasing and selling modules soon, so keep the prices in line with that thought.
10  Economy / Service Discussion / [RESOLVED] BitInstant Paypal Missing funds! on: April 10, 2013, 10:10:17 PM
I used BitInstant to transfer funds to Paypal without success. Now my cash appears to be lost in a limbo. The process was rather smooth and I filled in all fields correctly. During checkout I noticed they wrote on their page that some First Time Paypal orders may be checked manually.

No problem. I understand their need for security and doing things right.

After I checked the order status which is updated in real time, the message said that the order was passed to the Paypal Exchange with a MTGox Coupon as the funding source within a few minutes. Great, I thought. They are a premium service and for the [rather hefty fees) they charge they do what they say on the website. They do it quickly!

Not so it turns out.

I checked Paypal and nothing actually showed up. I received a payment from an unrelated transaction so there was no issue in receiving money from my customers through Paypal. What was disturbing to me was that I got an email explaining that I had received the funds....yet at the same time it explains that there was an error in the process.

---> ErrorCode: Insufficient Funds U: Payment ID <---

How is that possible? I made a MtGox USD coupon for $400. Went to Bitinstant. They pulled the MtGox coupon and deposited the correct amount then took their (rather hefty premium fees) and (supposedly) deposited into my Paypal Account.

So where is there room for error? I used a nice round number so I wouldn't have any issues. They also tell you upfront how much the fees will be before you do the final process.


I dispatch an email late at night and expect a response sometime the next day.
In the morning I try to take advantage of their Live Agent feature which they say is available from 9am to 5pm. I keep trying it throughout the day and it never works! No Live Chat is available.

I call the number and leave my details. They also refer to the Live Chat feature as the best and fastest way to resolve problems. All the Live Agent feature does is send your message to an email address and then you have to wait a painfully long time.

Later in the day I got a response via email that I needed to wait 1 to 2 business days for PayPal to check my account. So I waited 2 business days and then some.

So I started on the 5th, now I am on the 10th and still no "Instant" service. I have dropped emails through their Live Agent (read: normal email) and it has been two days without a response.

I have heard of people saying (on BTC-e and elsewhere) they have lost up to 1,000 USD with BitInstant. That money allegedly disappears into a limbo. I didn't think I would ever encounter such a situation myself.

Though here I am. Complaining over a service that should have been completed several days ago.


If any agent that wanders the forums is willing to help me out and explain what went wrong, I would be more than willing to hear about it. Please contact me via PM.

13  Bitcoin / Hardware / BFL, Box of fans and Avalon trolling: [Announcement] Avalon ASIC Ships on: January 29, 2013, 01:19:59 AM
You could certainly fit a Nexus 7 on the front.  I mean, the thing is the size of a Minirig SC.  Heh... a BFL single with power brick at the same GH/s is smaller than the PSU of the Avalon.  Comedy gold.  
The size of the unit itself may be the part that gets you into trouble with your own customers.


It will hopefully be funny when the review comes out and BFLs size becomes it's biggest limitation. (assuming it doesn't also overheat in that little clam-shell of a box)

EDIT: BFL forums is down? Perhaps they ran for the hills??

All vendors must/should pass this certification requirement. Please feel free to use this thread for any Vendors which are bringing their products out to market.



Hence, this is why the framing of the information....seems a bit off.

Be careful.  If you point out inconsistencies and ambiguities in BFL's announcements Josh will start rageflaming you.  Spoken from experience.
@ Eldentyrell

I would like you to elucidate on a point related to clock buffer and electromagnetic noise.

Question: Do you remember when one BFL representative started to mention FCC requirement for certifying a device and various other certification required for producing a device that complies with various international regulations?

Background 0: A BFL representative when asked about their own compliance with such regulations went on record to state that their device was currently in testing. (presumably at a lab)

Background 1: Later, after that debacle, when asked if there were any functional prototype devices, the BFL representative stated there were none at that time. (November)

Question: How can a device be sent to the FCC labs for testing and certification if there is no working and functional prototype?

Is that the reason why additional clock buffers were added? To reduce noise?

(Admittedly, this is unlikely, but possible)

Note: I presume that the clock buffer are/were to reduce noise localized to the chip. But I have to ask, was the noise leaking further than the immediate area of the chip? Did it fail FCC certification or inspection? Further, if there are no prototypes, then what was sent in late October for evaluation? [Speculation]
