1  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTS] ASICMiner Block Erupter Cube with Ethernet & USB : 0.70 BTC on: January 06, 2014, 05:10:04 AM
Hello, I'm looking to sell my USB Block Erupter Cube, along with appropriate Ethernet and USB cables all for 0.70 BTC.

I'm willing to use any escrow service of your choosing.

Also, here are some pictures I took of it and the cables. It's in perfect condition, barely used.

NOTE: I prefer not to ship internationally, as I am based in the US.

2  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / How do I get an ASICMiner Block Erupter Cube working? on: December 20, 2013, 01:39:54 AM
So I recently received an ASICMiner Block Erupter Cube that I ordered, and I can't seem to get it recognized by neither CGMiner nor BFGMiner. It needed a specific driver to be installed in order for it to be recognized, so I downloaded and installed it. However, neither CGMiner nor BFGMiner recognize it. Instead, they only recognize my NVidia GPU, which of course isn't ideal for mining.

Does anyone have one of these? And if so, how have you gotten it working? Apparently ASICMiner and all their wisdom decided not to include any sort of documentation -__-
3  Other / Politics & Society / Mars One - What do you think? on: December 13, 2013, 05:28:00 AM
Maybe some of you have heard of the Mars One project, where basically starting 2024, 4 people will voluntarily embark on a journey to Mars to live there permanently, with 4 more people being sent every 2 years.

With this being the case, do you see Mars One leading to anything significant in the future? Maybe the start of a new economic frontier?

Will the ability to create cryptographic currencies, seemingly at will, come into play?

Let your imaginations run wild ion anything I didn't mention if you wish, because I fall into that temptation at times when reading about it, kinda like with the whole idea of sea steading. Grin
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / BEL/BTC Google Docs Exchange on: December 13, 2013, 04:01:17 AM
Google Docs Exchange SpreadSheet:

Original BEL Topic:

Any bids or asks should be posted on this thread in the following format:

I'd like to sell (or buy) 15000 BEL for 0.005 BTC per 10K BEL

Here you are stating that for every 10,000 BEL you are paying 0.005 BTC, resulting in a 0.0075 BTC total. However, if you find someone with the same BTC/10K BEL rate that you'd like to trade with, you are responsible for conducting the transaction yourselves. Also, that "per 10K BEL" bit is very important as it makes it quicker and easier to enter the data appropriately into the spreadsheet.  Cool

You should also post here on this thread that a trade has been conducted so I can remove your bid/ask from the spreadsheet and add you both to the "Successful Trades" section of the spreadsheet. That should be posted in a format similar to:

Successfully sold (or bought) my 15000 BEL to (or from) [insert username here] for 0.005 BTC per 10K BEL

If you're willing to act as an escrow, please post that you are willing to do so in this thread and I'll update this post and the spreadsheet.

I'll try to stay on top of it as best as I can. And you're free to send donations to any of the addresses listed in the spreadsheet if you'd like.  Smiley

5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [WIP & Gauging Interest] List of alt-coin mining pools. Useful or no? on: December 06, 2013, 04:13:29 AM
So I've been thinking about how there's no central, go-to place to find mining pools for exclusively alt-coins. There may be such lists on other alt-coin forums, however I'd imagine a person who's relatively new to cryptocurrencies and mining may start here (why would they not? I remember I did). So I figured I may as well give a shot at making as comprehensive a list as possible. I know there are things to be filled in and probably many more pools to be added, but I just want to gauge interest first. Let me know what you guys think.
6  Bitcoin / Pools / What goes into starting a mining pool? on: December 04, 2013, 10:16:56 PM
Not sure if this is the right place to post this, tho I'm quite curious as to what goes into establishing/maintaining a mining pool. Some things are quite self-explanatory, such as needing a good quality server and perhaps a nice-looking front end. However, how much traffic should one expect, and how does one prepare accordingly?

How does one go about implementing the necessary functionality of a mining pool (setting up a reward system, supporting X, Y, and Z coins, being able to withdraw to an address, etc)?

Also, how would a front-end be set up? I've seen among many alt-coin pools a sort of standard front-end, but what goes into creating one (and where do other pool owners get this "standard" front-end)?

Does this mean I want to start a mining pool? Maybe, maybe not. Tho if I do, it probably won't be any time soon. Regardless I feel its interesting to know. Tongue
7  Other / Politics & Society / Feeling comfortable with the word "anarchist". on: November 20, 2013, 03:44:50 AM
So over many months I've felt my political views change gradually. From being a small-government libertarian to sympathizing with anarchist ideals and points. These include the whole idea behind the non-aggression principal and that the state is nothing more than a hazardous monopoly over force and the creation/enforcement of law. However, I must ask those who call themselves "Anarchists" (regardless of what kind of anarchist you are), what made you say with confidence and ease "I am an anarchist"? Remember that we were all raised with the notion that "anarchy" means "chaos", and that we should fear anarchy. Thus for me, I have a hard time saying "I'm an anarchist" (in my head at least) and feeling comfortable with it simply because of the stigma around it.

What made you decide with certainty to call yourself an "anarchist" or "anarcho-[insert word here]"?

Also, what made you get over this kind of discomfort with openly calling yourself an anarchist (assuming you had any discomfort to begin with)?
8  Economy / Economics / [POLL] Anyone ever get a local store to accept Bitcoin? on: May 27, 2013, 10:36:08 PM
As stated in the poll question..also if you answered "yes", I'd encourage you give an example(s) of a business(es) that you've successfully dealt with. I'm just curious to see if people really are doing this kinda stuff or not. I personally haven't gotten around to it, as I feel a bit apprehensive. Also, if this has been asked before then you can point me to the topic Tongue
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Truly Localizing a Crytpocurrency: Ideas? on: May 22, 2013, 12:44:32 AM
I've been bouncing ideas on how to accomplish a true localization of an altcoin's network to a certain community, however this is coming from someone who is no expert in networking and network infrastructure. I have a bare understanding of the composition of bitcoin's network (nodes communicating through TCP). But the biggest challenge, it seems, in creating a local cryptographic currency is how to limit mining to a specific geographic area. I'm sure if I were to state that such a currency would only be used in a specific town, people here probably wouldn't care too much and throw ridiculous amounts of hashing power at it, try to open an exchange, and dump the coin, which has been done with several alts already (even though localization was none of their intentions). The more I think about it, the more it points to the use of a central authority, which I know plenty of people on here, including myself, aren't very fond of. However, I'm still open to that idea if that's what has to be done.

A couple thoughts I've had include:

  • Creating a central website where people registering would be required to enter their SSN to be validated within a certain period of time, resulting in only residents of whatever community to be allowed to register successfully. From there, residents would be allowed to download a miner, client, and so forth (provided there are means on said website to help those who aren't tech savvy). However there are two caveats to this: 1) It'd require the cooperation of a local government to conduct said SSN validation. 2) It may have to be closed source, considering that nearly anyone on here (or elsewhere) can compile source code and run it pretty easily, thus destroying the integrity of the aforementioned security measure.
  • As mentioned in elciptic's topic: (albeit in a different context)
    Creating a new network paradigm for the altcoin to run on. Not sure what this would entail or if it's even possible or practical, but I think it's worth discussing.

Also, feel free to chip in on whether this idea is even worth pursuing or not. Tongue
10  Economy / Economics / Localizing a cryptocurrency: is it possible? on: May 03, 2013, 09:41:08 PM
Not sure if this has been discussed before, so feel free to point me in the right direction if this is the case.

I'm sure many of us are aware that local currencies exist, however from what I've seen most, if not all, have been paper currencies. So far these haven't proven to be too problematic, but what if a community wanted to stimulate their local economy with a digital currency as a different approach? This would be assuming that people and small businesses within said community were willing to accept it.

I'm aware it would have to be taxable to be legal (which I personally hate), but all the legal issues aside, could a community actually do things like restrict mining to their area? Would it be advantageous to do so, or simply stick with paper currencies? I ask this mainly because local currencies have been beneficial in some sense (like the Ithaca Hour), yet such paper currencies are always at risk of being subject to counterfeiting, much more so than a cyptocurrency. Also, theres always the ability for a cryptocurrency to be scarce, whereas paper can be easily created from a central authority out of a printing press as we all know.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Litecoin Wallet not starting - C++ Runtime Library error on: April 01, 2013, 06:33:04 AM
So I've had this problem for several months, but I've given up on it for quite a while. Now that I see how much LTC is worth, I figure I ought to access my 200 LTC I mined many months ago.
But I've tried everything to solve this error I keep getting:

"This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way."

I've tried:
Reinstalling the 2010 64-bit C++ Libraries
Uninstalling and updating my Litecoin wallet client
Clean booting

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, and so far nothing has worked. Is there anything left I could do?
12  Economy / Auctions / 130 shares of GBT.YAMBC starting at 0.025 BTC each on: March 27, 2013, 02:53:47 PM
So I've been wanting to sell these for a while but there's simply little to no activity for this asset on bitfunder, so I figured I try here.
Right now i 'm starting with:

130 @ 0.025 BTC ea.
Minimum bid increase: 0.001 BTC

I'm willing to use an escrow service, such as bitcrow, as well.
13  Economy / Goods / [WTS] Old Video Games and Misc Stuff on Bitmit on: March 26, 2013, 05:03:19 AM
Hello everyone. While I'm not new to bitcoin, I'm relatively new to the forums, so I'm aware that trust may not yet be fully established. However, I feel I should start somewhere. I'm currently selling only a couple of items on Bitmit, however I'll be adding more things over the next few days. Mainly what I'll be offering is a bunch of older video games and the occasional book here and there. I'm willing to use escrow as well to solidify trust with any potential buyers.

I also wouldn't mind a few pointers and constructive criticism in case I'm missing anything important.  Cool

Anyway, here's the link to one of my items:
Any other items of mine will be visible there as well.
