1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Hashers United Conference, Las Vegas, Oct 10-11th on: September 10, 2014, 05:10:25 PM


The first global conference dedicated to cryptocurrency mining, called Hashers United (www.HashersUnited.com), is taking place 10-11th October 2014, at Tuscany Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The conference will bring together professionals, hobbyists and vendors from within mining and throughout the wider cryptocurrency sector.  Attendees can expect over 35 workshops and sessions, and more than 25 speakers, including Vitalik Buterin (founder Ethereum) and Charlie Lee (creator Litecoin), specially selected for their expertise and commitment to mining and cryptocurrencies.
 
Whether it is Bitcoin, Litecoin or any other altcoin, at the core of a cryptocurrency are the miners. Hashers United has been created to provide a face-to-face learning environment that offers not just the benefit of networking with peers, but practical tips and guidelines on enhanced methods of coin selection; improving efficiency; beating the onset of increasing costs and generating greater profits.
 
The conference will feature key figures from tax, legal and regulatory bodies from the United States to provide important updates. In addition, speakers will cover topics including protocol scrutiny, algorithm analysis for better strategic planning and operations; more effective rig building; live mining demonstrations; and workshops covering profitability, investment, cryptocurrency management and more.
 
The team behind Hashers United is mining contract company Final Hash LLC (www.FinalHash.com) who has rig facilities based in Houston, Texas. Commenting on the launch, Executive Technical Director, Marshall Long, said: “We’re in contact with miners every day and their needs just aren’t being met via current conferences or even online.  It’s time for a ‘real world’ forum where everyone, no matter their experience, can have an open and frank discussion about the key issues they are facing and how as a community we can help each other to overcome them.”
 
Early Bird tickets at $199 for miners (instead of $349) and $499 for vendors (instead of $599) are now available to purchase at the conference website www.HashersUnited.com. For a limited period, Early Bird tickets have a 5% discount and can only be purchased by cryptocurrency (over 20 to choose from including Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Peercoin, Darkcoin and more). Fiat currency bookings will open at the beginning of July

2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Should QubitCoin Become Merge Mined [POLL] on: September 06, 2014, 09:45:48 PM
Qubitcoin is a coin which was released several months ago which has been left without a development team.

Currently as part of myriadcoin's PolyMYR project i am offering to update Qubitcoin to the latest LTC base, while keeping its current features(diff retarget, block reward, qubit algo) and adding merged-mining.

What is merged mining?

http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/273/how-does-merged-mining-work

Advantages of merged mining
- Increase in hashrate, therefore leading to an increase in security
- Increase in the size of the development team
- Increase in the usefulness of the coin itself with the likelihood of being added to myriad's services
- Security from being kept up to date with LTC sources

Disadvantages
- Possability of a larger blockchain
- Future Hard Fork's must be done in co-operation with merged-miners

Genesis Mining Cloud-Hash Review

I've recently started renting some scrypt hashpower from them and with much better service than i've recieved in comparison to companies like cex.io or standard rental sites like betarigs i felt like this needs promoting more

How does it work

At the moment Genesis Mining currently allow user's to buy sha256 hashpower for bitcoin and scrypt hashpower for a wide range of altcoin's. This is used to mine on their own hand picked pool's or solo mined on their own coin daemon's to give back to user's the fee savings. According to a support ticket i sent to genesis mining, They plan on allowing user's to mine sha256 altcoins rather than only bitcoin as they do at the moment. In addition to this they are also planning on cutting the prices of their scrypt contracts to 39 USD MH/s per year. At the moment they dont do X11 hashpower however i've been told its something they intend to do.

Why i like them
1 thing i have found lacking in a number of cloud hashing and rental services is the inability to split hashpower between multiple coins. This is something which genesis-mining allows very easily using their dashboard. At the time of writing this, genesis mining allows people to split their hashpowe between the following coins:
- RDD
- BC
- LTC
- DOGE
- AUR
- FTC
- LOT
- MEC
- NVC
- POT

Additionally unlike gawminer's hashlet's genesis mining actually shows pictures of their miners and is overall a pretty transparent company. They have an about page with info on their company here: https://www.genesis-mining.com/about-us. Staff of the company have also attended various bitcoin conferences. In the following article about Gavin Anderson's comment stating that most cloud hashing are ponzi's genesis mining went as far as to invite Gavin to their facilities to view their vast range of hardware. http://cointelegraph.com/news/112329/gavin-andresens-fractional-reserve-mining-cloud-miners-respond.

Why i use it
As a private pool operator its often neccesary for me to rent enough hashpower to ensure that the pool works properly on any given coin. During high demand period's such as when altcoin's launch its difficult to be able to rent double digit hashpower at a good price. For this reason i am also considering buying one of genesis mining's lifetime mining contracts which i think is active as long as the payout is over the fees paid. Has anyone tried it out before so i can get some opinions before i buy it?

As well as this it also means i dont have to spend time and effort on setting up asic's, cooling and power to ensure that i'm not loosing money when the rigs are offline while genesis mining have a 100% UPTIME GUARANTEE!!. I've read a reddit post by one of the /r/BitcoinMining mod's: http://www.reddit.com/r/BitcoinMining/comments/2enhh4/genesisminingcom_is_a_dishonestly_run_business/  and i seem to disagree with what they're saying. So far from the research i've done they seem to be one of the most reputable companies out there.

FootNote: This is an impartial review as a user of genesis mining. I've used a number of rental sites including miningrigrentals, betarigs and cloud hashing services such as CEX.io and i felt that genesis mining deserved a review

Okay back.

Done a test on stratum-mining and eloipool using the exploit documented above.
Stratum-mining and eloipool in scrypt mode both reject these shares.
This makes it almost 99% sure that it is a diff1 error and stratum-mining IS NOT at fault. the pool operator's are at fault for not using the correct diff1's for the algorithm
