1  Other / Off-topic / Does anyone have a Native Instruments Maschine? on: December 21, 2014, 05:18:12 PM
Hi all,

I DJ as a hobby and play around with Traktor a lot nowadays (started off on CDJ-400s). Have been toying with getting a Maschine to add some live performance aspects to my sets or help with dabbling with production as a lot of tunes on Beatport and so forth are getting too hit and miss, particularly with breaks music. I've also got my eye on a M-Audio Trigger Finger Pro as an alternative option.

2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin: Australian Tax Office to release new rules on transactions on: June 10, 2014, 06:43:13 AM

Some guidelines on digital currencies with regards to taxation to appear by the end of the month. They've been mulling it over for a few years, so hopefully they'll be reasonable and balanced.
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Mt.Gox being subpoenaed = freezing of withdrawals and site shutdown? on: February 26, 2014, 03:28:01 AM

Note the wording "An unnamed source tells him simply that federal prosecutors sent the subpoena this month." Suddenly makes a whole lot of sense why Mark Karpeles clammed up and froze all withdrawals and was not able to comment on what was going on, particularly if it was just sent prior to the lockdown.

Thread title says it all.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Altcoin Mining Software and Hardware Reference Thread on: December 29, 2013, 09:49:10 AM
Ok, the clutter in here is beginning to annoy me, particularly with having to sift through the giveaway and announcement threads to try and keep up to date with some of the software mining programs, so I thought I would create this thread to help with finding them quickly. Given the kittens chance in hell of altcoin subforums being created, this is probably the best alternative at this point. I imagine I'm not alone in my opinion on this, especially given the current stickied threads regarding the list of coins and associated services.

Software - CUDAminer (Scrypt miner for Nvidia cards) - Unofficial jhPrimeminer thread (CPU miners for Primecoins)

Hardware - Fibonacci SCRYPT ASIC Litecoin LTC Miners

Can a moderator please sticky this thread? Also, feel free to add direct links to other threads in this forum regarding altcoin software and hardware such as Litecoin FPGAs (as an example). SHA-256 coins are already covered in the Bitcoin Hardware and Software Mining areas, so please consider links to threads about Scrypt, Scrypt-Jane, SHA512 and so on instead.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Merge-mining of altcoins: Is it time? on: December 25, 2013, 06:10:33 PM
Given the number of clone coins that seem to be churned out nearly daily, should some established altcoins consider merge-mining with each other to strengthen their overall networks and consolidate more mining power? I feel that if something like this isn't considered and doesn't happen, BTC will keep dominating as the top cryptocurrency without any real considerable threat to it. Plus, it might open up some more trading possibilities. For example, using the parent coin, such as Litecoin, as the primary long-term wealth storage and using a merged-mined coin of a similar type, such as Feathercoin that has 4 times the overall number of coins, or even Dogecoin, as a means of trading for lower value goods. Theoretically, the merged-mined coins should ideally have a proportion value to the amount of coins against each type (i.e. Feathercoin as a quarter of the value of a Litecoin). That way, the parent coin could become the equivalent gold of its type, another one the silver and so forth.

Some would've baulked at this being proposed about a year ago, but maybe now is the time to start considering it.
7  Economy / Speculation / China buying the cheap coins while they can on: December 18, 2013, 06:47:19 PM

The amount of coins still flowing into China doesn't appear to be slowing down at all. If anything, they look like they might be speeding up the rate at which they are buying.

You've all been played for fools by the PRC, simple as that.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Which alt coins will die off in 2014? on: December 06, 2013, 12:27:35 PM
My list

Terracoin: Poor market support, only really seems to be mined for speculative trading for other coins, has been the repeated victim of ASIC difficulty attacks, pretty much on life support now.
Megacoin: The hype surrounding it will evaporate as fast as a bucket of water in a hot furnace and will lose value fast, particularly as more people learn of its early questionable history.
Mincoin: With MCXnow on the ropes and no other major exchanges supporting it, will probably be taken out the back and shot.
Bytecoin: Pretty much dead now, but will have the final nail in the coffin hammered in soon.
Starcoin: Dead in the water at the moment, nil chances of revival.
Bitbars/CryptogenicBullion/etc: Seriously have nothing to add to the table apart from artificial rarity, don't even seem to be used for direct purchasing of goods or services.
Feathercoin: Locked into a battle to the death with parent Litecoin at the moment, but Litecoin's momentum will be too much and the death blow will be swift and brutal.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Price of Litecoin in USD at 30th of April 2013 on: April 27, 2013, 10:57:31 AM
Noticed that there seems to be a steady upward trend in the price of Litecoins at the moment, but it seems to go down in correlation with DDOS attacks that affect Mostly Bitcoin related services. Given that it's only a few days until the end of the month and anything can happen to dramatically influence the exchange rate, where do you think the price will finish at?
