2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / 8 GPU rig: 8th is not powering up (not my first 8 GPU rig with those components) on: February 22, 2018, 12:37:56 PM
Hi fellow miners,

So I've been mining for a few years and done several 8 GPU rigs, it's always the same setup:

Asus Z270A
Corsair HX1200i
Cheap celeron cpu

The 8th GPU gets connected to an M2 to pci-e converter. Never had an issue with this setup, I usually don't even need to touch the PCI-e gen settings, I just enable 4G decoding and all is well.

Anyway, I've converted some of my 6 card rigs to 8 card rigs recently, and this particular rig is giving me trouble with the 8th GPU. No matter how I plug it in, what settings I change, as long as it sits in that m2 slot with an adapter, it's not getting power (fans don't spin at boot). This is definitely not a Windows issue. Here's the weird part:

If I plug the card in the riser and boot the machine, if I sometimes just slightly tilt the card + riser backwards, fans start spinning (seems random), or just one fan spins. Windows doesn't see the card though. If I just power the GPU without the riser, fans don't spin either (I think that's normal). Here's what I've tried so far:

- Changing riser, riser cable, m2 to pci-e adapter: no difference
- Unplug all cards except this one and leave it in the m2 slot: no difference
- Change all bios settings I could think of (m2 slot to pci-e mode, gen settings etc.): no difference
- Set the card and the riser each with their own pci-e power cable and molex cable: no difference
- Downgraded the motherboard bios to 1009 (same version I have on other 8 GPU rigs): no difference
- Tried bot m2 slots: no difference

If I plug the card and its riser into a regular pci-e slot on the mobo (same riser, riser cable, pci-e power cord), the card get's power and works fine. If I plug the card back in the rig where it came from, it works fine.

This leads me to believe that either the motherboard or the PSU has an issue (I'm tilting more towards a PSU problem as the card is not powering up). Just wondering if anyone else had such an issue before as most things I google are about the 8th card not being recognized by windows, which isn't my case.

3  Economy / Economics / Is market cap really something that matters in a coins value? Because... on: January 19, 2018, 12:45:01 PM

Ok so, everytime you take a look at a coin's price prediction with a google search, like for instance Cardano, you always have the hopeful heard that says "10$ by the end of 2018!" if not more, while some more rational people will say it's not possible, 2$ max, because with the supply of coins (which is 25 billion for ada according to cmc), a 10$ share would mean a 250 billion market cap.

So in essence, rationally, you can sort of predict a coins price by simply looking at coin supply and doing basic math.

Yet, it is a known fact that Ethereum for instance has no coin limit. Although there are not as many coins as Ada (about 100 million to round it up), people are today still ready to pay up to 1400$ a coin, which means an MC of 140 billion USD not a week ago. I'm pretty sure that 1400$ is still the lower/middle end of what 1 ETH will be valued at some point. Heck, it was barely worth 7$ a year ago, and I bet you people were saying the same thing back then "1000$ not possible".

Same thing with the global market cap, what were people saying 3-4 years ago? I bet a trillion market cap seemed pretty impossible.

History repeats itself. People are not rational when it comes to cryptos and we are still in what you could call early stages. It's only been what, a few months now that Bitcoin has gathered interest from the masses. What's your impression? Is marketcap really an indicator? Because when you take a look at Cardano, it looks like a waaay better version of ETH. And as much as I like Ethereum, it's starting to show it's weaknesses and I feel the roadmap and general news about the coin don't make up for the price of 1400$.

So yeah, just curious to see what other's think.

4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Beware of Bittrex blocking withdrawals for "security" reasons on: October 17, 2017, 11:26:40 AM
So a friend of mine was trying to withdraw a certain amount of coins from Bittrex (around 1 BTC) and was faced with the need to now become verified on Bittrex to withdraw anything above 0.025BTC (accounts created prior to the 1st of August have a limit of 0.025BTC, newer accounts have 0 (lol)).

I don't know how many of you use Bittrex, if this is old news and just a copycat of another topic, but I felt like it needed to be put out there.

This is what they state:

"Due to the large number of leaked username and password databases, we are making changes to withdrawals to limit the damage of unauthorized access to your account.  This is not a substitute to having strong and unique passwords, protecting your email account, and having 2 factor authentication on your Bittrex account.  Bittrex strongly encourages you to have 2 factor authentication.  "

Ok, I'm all for security, but if people dealing cryptos are stupid enough to put qwertz1234 as their password and not enable 2FA, it's their own fault for being stupid.

Then comes the fun part (all from their support section):
"Withdraw Limits

1. If your password has been changed, you cannot make a withdrawal for 24 hours
2. If your account does not have 2FA, you are limited to withdrawing up to 1 BTC (or equivalent) per day ==> wtf, I had 2FA enabled forever yet my limit is 0.025? So with less security you have a bigger limit. Wow. Much sence. Very secure.

3. Please check below to see what limit your account falls under.
Unverified Accounts created before 08/01/17: 0.025 BTC (or equivalent) per day ==> Hey, I mister miseeks, look at meee
Unverified Accounts created on or after 08/01/17: 0 BTC (or equivalent) per day
Basic Accounts: 3 BTC (or equivalent) per day with two-factor enabled. ==> I'm fine with that
Enhanced Accounts: 100 (or equivalent) BTC per day with two-factor enabled"


So I go ahead and enter some bogus name and address in their basic validation form. Hey, you can't blame a guy for trying: no official document is required for a basic account and nothing on their page states you have to input correct information (or I missed it). I click on the apply button and it says "verifying public records" or some other shit. Obviously, their results turn up empty. But oh wow, I can't even re-apply for a basic account with "correct" information. The only thing you can do from there is get an enhanced account where you need to take a selfie of yourself etc. Which is exactly what I, and any person involved into cryptos, don't want. I don't know the people at Bittrex.

Trying not to cringe...

Now, ok, I probably fucked myself I guess. But still, this poses a number of questions:

1. For one, I have never received notification from Bittrex that at some point in time, I would have to upgrade my account or be limited to 0.025 BTC a day
2. What public records are they looking up to check your info? What if I'm not in the public records they query? Imagine you have 2-3 BTCs on there that you can no longer withdraw
3. What happens if you unintentionally misspell your name or address?
4. Even if I get verified, take a nice smiling picture of myself and send over all my info, what guarantee do I have they won't use my information for other purposes? I tell you: not a single one! I don't know the people at Bittrex, and if a company I deal with starts to just change their T&C like that, stopping me from having access to my funds, you sure as fuck can't trust them.

I already knew you couldn't trust exchanges, but I thought this should be pointed out (again). Everyone should leave Bittrex (or any exchange for that matter) and stash their coins in their own wallets at home.

I know some or a lot of you will go ahead and say "big deal, just get verified and be done with it". Fuck no! This is not what the cryptos where made for. And at the very least, Bittrex should have communicated, which they haven't, and they should have made their due diligence and let people withdraw their fund before implementing all this BS. I'm sorry but this looks like a hostage situation or a play to identify everyone. Call me paranoid if you want, but their leverage is very simple and efficient: either you give them all your info or say bye bye to your coins and deal with the pain of withdrawing small amounts every day, for which you will of course pay the fees every time :-).

Lucky me, I only have like 0.06 BTC on Bittrex. I have opened a support ticket on their support page, no reply in 24 hours...
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Poloniex API trading bot, how to get MACD, HIST and SIG? on: December 07, 2016, 08:24:09 PM

I was thinking of writing a trading bot in php as a little side project. I'm not a super experienced trader but this should be fun.

Question though, I was reading through the API:

But I don't see a way to get the MACD, HIST and SIG data for a given candle/time. Am I missing something or do I need to calculate these myself?

Sorry if this is a noobish question but I thought I might ask here before opening a ticket on Polo.

Thanks in advance
