1  Bitcoin / Group buys / Anyone interested in a UK Neptune group buy? on: November 29, 2013, 05:43:27 AM
Currently there seems to be fewer than 400 machines left in the first 1200 batch.

- Would anyone in the UK (ideally) be willing to poll in some money for one unit?
- Assuming present exchange rate, $10k is equivalent to around 6.1-6.3k.
- I would be able to put upto 1.5k cash forward at the most - however I would be far more comfortable if more people could chip in.
- Assuming the $10k poll is divided into 20 parts, each would be equivalent of $500 or 150Gh/s.
- I've got one in my basket but would be more comfortable to spilt it with others.
- My location has negligible electricity cost. Meaning low management cost.

Alternatively if there is someone else looking to do this - we can host at yours.  Wink

3  Bitcoin / Hardware / Can we make Avalon based ASIC? on: April 29, 2013, 11:05:41 PM
How difficult it is to make an Avalon based DIY ASIC?

Do forgive me for sounding like a newbie - I tend to think of DIY as plug&play as long as you could find the right components & firmware - and I really want to know what would be the biggest challenge towards making a 50Gh/s + miner based off Avalon?  Smiley Because it possible to buy Avalon based ASIC chips, it should be in theory possible for DIYers to make miners today -  but is there anything preventing it from being done today?

What you could find today:
240 or 320 Avalon chips (282MH/s Avalon chips)
PDU (should be easy to make?)
Extra parts: connector, fans, PSU, cooling

It's said that "communication protocol, reference board design provided in early May" for the DIYers - so basically the only thing the DIYers are waiting for is:

Control Unit (very challenging part?)


I've got a feeling I've over-simplified by a large margin - and left many important difficulty out - and would appreciate if someone could point some direction!
4  Other / Beginners & Help / Bitcoin vs Litecoin on: April 10, 2013, 06:13:10 AM
Hey guys,

This has been puzzling me. Been mining Bitcoin for about a week now - still looking at the Bitcoin vs Litecoin debate.

Could you let me know:

Which is faster to mine?
Which earns more money?
Would litecoin take off?
If I've a Nvidia GPU - which coin should I mine?
