1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / [50+ BTC Bounty] Public GPU Miner for Zcash on: September 10, 2016, 05:13:47 PM

My fellow Zcashers and I are looking for an interested developer or group of developers that have the skill set to develop a GPU miner for Zcash's Equihash algorithm.  Several people have offered to donate bitcoin for a Open Source/public solution to this problem.  Here is a forum thread from Zcash forum stating everyone's intent:

Currently, one individual that I'm aware of (Ampy) has created a Zcash GPU miner and has opted to sell to a mining farm privately.  Funds from the crowdfund were supposed to pay for the release of the miner to the public and potentially open source it, but it appears that negotiations with the public have fallen through.

If any interested developers can prove or provide a GPU miner by launch or shortly after launch we will organize and transfer the funds accordingly.

Please feel free to PM me for more details.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / KNC Titan not hashing on: May 09, 2016, 12:12:22 AM
Having issues getting my KNC Titan to hash.  The miner is able to connect to pools, but is showing a hashrate of 0.

It's been a few months since I fired this miner up, but I'm not sure why it's not working at all right now.
3  Economy / Service Discussion / Hosted mining space? Does anyone do it? on: June 25, 2015, 02:41:08 AM
Does anyone know of anyone using hosted mining space? Like Asicspace? Not cloud mining, space where mining hardware is powered and stored.

The reason I ask is, I live in a house that has a Bitcoin mining room that can handle 600A at 208 V. Cost of electricity is extremely cheap here ~$0.04/kW/h.

The mining setup we have now is about to be removed.  The hardware does not belong to me and is leaving in a month.  I'm debating offering hosted mining space and wanted to know if this is a service worth offering?

Thanks for your help!
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / The Legend of Satoshi Nakamato, FINAL STEP PUBLISHED.... 4.87 BTC GRAND PRIZE! on: September 02, 2014, 05:12:01 AM
[UPDATE 4/3/2015]

@Coin_artist has finally released the last part of the puzzle to the public via twitter.

There is 4.87 BTC contained within the image shown below via private key.  Follow through this thread to help navigate yourself through the start to finish of this elaborate puzzle! There are a lot of cool crypto techniques used during this journey...


I was just catching up on Coin_Artist's puzzle and came across a cryptic message with a link in the comments, the comment is 10 days old. Doesn't appear to be from Coin_Artist, the message is a bit puzzling.

Screenshot of the comment incase it gets deleted for some reason...

Who is WR?

It appears to be another Coin_Artist masterpiece...

5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / What if Bitcoin could make the internet publicly free for everyone? on: February 07, 2014, 12:17:07 AM
What if a layer built on top of the blockchain allowed users to mine in pools of wifi networks?

Users could download an app on their smartphone and move seamlessly through a group of wifi networks.
Working co-operatively and independently of the bitcoin network.

  • Making it economically beneficial for everyone to share the use of each others wifi networks.
  • Wifi network operators could receive pool fees like traditional mining networks.
  • Each wifi network would serve as a mining pool, the more users in a pool the higher probability of mining a block.
  • Hashing rates could be determined by bandwidth usage, less bandwidth usage higher hashing rate.
  • Users could purchase upgrades to hashing rates on the network, by contributing funds back into the reward pool.

This may possibly need to be a hybrid combination of a proof-of-stake and proof-of-work.

I also want to point out how important internet usage is for the bitcoin network, providing more access freely for Bitcoin users will greatly increase its probability of adoption.

8  Economy / Service Discussion / Is there a legitament Bitcoin lottery? on: January 24, 2014, 03:04:24 AM
We buy lotto tickets for a couple bucks to gamble at a huge price.  Has any brought this idea to Bitcoin?  Yes, I understand satoshi dice is like this, but I have yet to hear of large value lottery established.
