2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Does Enigma Catalyst... scam??? on: September 11, 2017, 01:49:49 PM
Hello everyone who is interested in Enigma Catalyst ICO.
It has already started for those who was at the whitelist. I'm not there, I'm just registered by mail. I've waited this ICO with huge anticipation as everyone around. It has good whitepaper, idea and token distribution model. But, there are some red flags appeared...

Here is the post of nagualcode (I hope he doesn't mind that I mention it here), which is in official ann thread.  There are some truthfully facts against Enigma ICO, including rising of max cap in just some days before ICO and so on.
There are some alert posts just before that with questions about the address of ENIGMA registration and jurisdiction. Many people were banned when they asked this question in telegram chat... and I was too.

What do you think about all this stuff? Can be these warnings true? Does Enigma ICO scam?
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / One more bloody day - China is going to shut down local exchanges on: September 08, 2017, 06:17:10 PM
There is one more "great" China government claim. Today I've found funny topic related tweet... Anything that China bans, you should invest in Smiley What do you think about it? Do you agree?
4  Bitcoin / Pools / How Much is BitMain Making from keeping the TXN fees? on: May 17, 2017, 06:01:05 PM
Has anyone ever calculated how much miners are actually paying to mine on Antpool?   It would seem like a huge amount of money since they are keeping all the TXN fees for "bonuses for our engineers" (I actually found that on their site buried in their section that suggests solo mining and treating it like a lottery).

5  Economy / Speculation / Who do you think is the next GOX that has been trying to manipulate price? on: December 15, 2015, 05:11:10 PM
It is obvious that someone is VERY short BTC right now from the unnatural level of concentrated sell volume whenever the price gets around $465.   Who do you think is manipulating the market to hide the fact that their company is likely going to blow up like Gox did?
My suspicion is with the businesses that allow people to buy and store the coins at their brokerage.  Those companies can stay short as long as people do not move the coins to their personal wallets (similar to demanding physical delivery of a commodity).
If you look at the last four weeks it is obvious someone is in very deep trouble that worsens when the price rises.
Any one else have thoughts on why a rational seller would sell huge amounts of coin all concentrated in a tight period that only serves to drive the price lower?
6  Economy / Trading Discussion / BitFinex. Question on Volume vs. large down days on: August 18, 2014, 08:34:16 PM
Why over the past weeks have all the large down days been the days where there is a large percentage of total trading done on BitFinex and a large volume compared to average?

8  Economy / Computer hardware / WTB Spondoolies SP10s USA only on: July 27, 2014, 04:18:04 PM
Interested in buying some more Spondoolies SP10s.
Can pay in cash if you are interested.   If you are in AZ, can buy in person.   Possible if you are in NV or CA to do in person exchange also.
PM me the price you want and your location.
9  Economy / Computer hardware / WTS Multiple Cointerra Terraminer IVs on: July 13, 2014, 05:26:22 PM
Need RackSpace for new equipment that is coming.
Cointerra is currently charging $3500 plus around $140 for ground shipping in the USA (1-6 Days).
I will sell used terraminer IVs for 3.5 bitcoin delivered (by ground) in the USA.   International shipping we would have to work something else out.
They are from the feb/mar/april shipments of cointerras and perform between 1.4 and 1.65.   You may be able to tune them better than I did but that is where they perform with just firmware updates.
If you have access to 208/220V, I will throw in the cords and the power bar for every three you buy (you cannot put more than three of these on one 220V 30amp plug).

EDIT:  Lowered Price to match sale.

Have 30 left.   Will accept 28 BTC for 10 machines. or 78 BTC for the last 30
10  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / To mine or to buy? [Split from: Review of the SP10 „Dawson“ 1.4TH/s miner] on: April 23, 2014, 07:33:22 PM
I have another idea to cut the noise.    For $4495, I just bought 9.35 BTC and did not have to wait until May to get the bitcoin and it made almost no noise producing them.
Or, you can give them $4495 now, and if the network only grows to 60PH/s by mid May (good luck with that), your noisy machine will start producing 0.08 bitcoin a day.
It will only take you around 6 months to get the 9.35 coins that you could have in an instant IF everything goes perfectly.   Sound like a good deal?
11  Other / Meta / ASIC Manufacturer's Customer Service Wall of Shame on: March 07, 2014, 01:07:44 AM
I think there should be a place in custom hardware that people can post epic failures of ASIC companies so that people in the future can have insight into the character of the company they may consider purchasing from.   Many times these posts get deleted and they are lost which is a shame because the true character of the company was many times revealed and could have saved many people millions of dollars.   The post where Josh from Butterfly Labs (that he later deleted) where he called Entropy a "cock sucking thai whore" because Entropy was trying to explain to Josh what was wrong with his chip is an example of that.
Great insight for customers on how they should have expected that company to treat them. 

Hopefully some people have saved some of these gems and can put them here for others' to profit (by not losing money) from and we can prevent as many pre-orders as we can.
12  Other / Off-topic / Phineas Gage is no Columbo on: March 06, 2014, 11:53:01 PM
We all know that Phin fancies himself as a pretty astute sleuth with an internet connection.   However, after being on this forum for YEARS, he could not find out that satoshi nakamoto was a guy named Satoshi Nakamoto?
I really always thought Phin was more like columbo with the tenacity of Javert and now my image of him is shattered as I realize he may be more like Clouseau
13  Economy / Speculation / China blocks BTC Guild, bitminter and Slush Pools? on: December 19, 2013, 07:48:00 PM
I am in china right now and cannot get on either BTC Guild, bitminter or Slush's pools.    But when I use a vpn and connect through HK, it works fine.
Can miners in china tell me if this has always been this way or if this is a new happening?
Many other bitcoin sites (like bitcointalk you can get to without VPN).
14  Economy / Services / Need HELP, 0.5 BTC reward on: November 25, 2013, 04:50:03 PM
One of my employees had her home broken into by someone on Friday and they stole a lot of stuff that had sentimental value.   She would really like to get it back and I am not sure if someone on here might know how to track photos better than just my imac info feature.
The thief took her 5 year old son's Itouch which is connected to her Cloud account.   Only 1.5 hours after the robbery, photos started getting posted to her cloud account (it is automatic).   The photos show the thief and his girlfriend in selfies and his girlfriend in lingerie wearing some of my employee's stolen jewelry.

Since the time of the first photo is so close to the time of the robbery, she knows they live close but would love an exact location since the local cops here do not seem to give two shits about investigating anything (even when presented with a PHOTO of the thief).

So, if anyone (or if it is even possible) could determine from an exact location where these photos were uploaded to the cloud (Itouch can only use wifi), I would pay 0.5 BTC.

OR, even better, if the law enforcement personnel (who I already pay taxes to support) that lurk on these forums would be willing to use their skills to help catch a criminal, please help.   < that obviously is a joke but it would renew my faith in the world if law enforcement would help.

15  Economy / Service Discussion / Consumer's view of BitPay and bitcoin transaction "costs" on: November 12, 2013, 05:01:32 PM
I have not purchased anything with bitcoin through a intermediary/shopping cart that did instant F/X exchange, until last week when I used a website that used bitpay for conversion.  It had always been a sent number of coins I needed to pay.  Last week, I purchased some miners and paid Bitpay and thought the price did not seem near market.   It was off by 3%.
Then I tried to buy from the same company on the weekend.   The market was $324 at Bitstamp and $323 at Bitpay's own API, when the payment window came up the US dollar amount divided by the bitcoins calculated to a $304 exchange rate.
I did not do the transaction because I felt like I was being ripped off.    Not a "cheap and easy" transaction in any stretch of the imagination.

17  Bitcoin / Hardware / Bitcoinorama: Shill for KNC? Hardware is too full of sock puppets on: August 13, 2013, 05:06:22 PM
I would like to hear other people's opinions as I am mostly interested in mining hardware and how mining affects me and I have noticed that the level of information in most of the ASIC forums is terrible because of people that I believe act like sock puppet accounts of the OP (in whatever post you choose).   They only venture out to attack competitors and other than that sit in their forum and attack anyone who questions anything.   And they all spend an unreasonable amount of time posting for anyone who is just an interested party (or even a zealot).   VBS seems to be one but Ken actually changed his structure to make things more fair.   We all know about the twit Josh/Inaba.   But, I would like people to weigh in on Bitcoinorama.

Joined April 23.  About two weeks after KNC started by saying they had a project and had been pushed really hard by hero members.   Posted a couple bs comments and then started writing essays almost exclusively defending KNC and PRing them.   Then branched out to attack their competitors and still has time to sit on KNC board attacking any naysayers.

Time on bitcointalk:  650 hours since joining.   I give him 12 per day to sleep, eat, shower, shit and shave, and there has been 112 days since he joined.   650 / (112 * 12 remaining hours per day) = 48% of the time that he is awake and not eating/going to the bathroom/cleaning himself Bitcoinorama is on these forums attacking competitors or naysayers of KNC AND pumping up KNC.

Read his first posts.   "total noob"   "just happened upon bitcoin"


18  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Monday of the 2nd week of May is past Avalon on: May 06, 2013, 03:42:41 PM
So, we have now past midnight in china of Monday in the 2nd week of May.
Did I understand Avalon's statement clearly?  Here are the points I believed.
1.   Avalon will ship 20 units out to test the new shipping system (new system will also give tracking numbers).
2.  Shipping in earnest will begin in the second week of May.

So, unless I am completely wrong, there should be 20 units that have arrived to people (I would assume in a bunch of different countries) AND Avalon should be in full shipping mode.

Has ANYONE, received a Batch II order or even a tracking number?
19  Bitcoin / Hardware / Is this a Fourth ASIC supplier? on: April 29, 2013, 08:32:48 PM
If you look at the network, there is a chunk of capacity (between 8-10 TH/s) that cannot be explained.
BFL has shipped a negligible amount thus far, FriedCat openly announces his daily roll out, Avalon batch one is accounted for and we know that the amount of FPGAs added in the last month cannot even explain 1 TH/s of this unaccounted for increase. 
So, does that mean there is another ASIC that has entered the market but is mining?
For perspective, this is the equivalent of 675-800 of ASICminer's blades or around 125-150 Avalons.  This is a large amount of hardware no matter how you look at it.
Thoughts on where it came from?
20  Bitcoin / Hardware / ASIC Status Thread on: April 08, 2013, 03:32:09 PM
Could we start a thread that just posts news and rumors about shipping status of the three companies that could possibly ship ASICs this summer?   Like a place to post what BFL throws out in the shout box that we may miss on their status or if Friedcat posts something more solid on the 50TH auction or if an avalon batch II starts showing up at someone's door?

Just string about current rumors or facts and opinions on them.
