2  Bitcoin / Hardware / Miners positioning in the basement on: June 12, 2021, 09:03:47 AM
this topic concerns how i positioned the miners inside my basement
i did run them in several places (almost 30pcs Antminer S9)
i did this because of the breakers I wanted to spread so avoid burning any wires due to heavy load or having automatic relays falling
all the time.
this had as an effect the hot air from one miner to enter into the inlet of another, so all hot air just got hotter.
What I did at a second stage was to put them all in a big wooden box using long thick wire to allow them stand and created some kind of shelves.
i had lets imagine a small wall of all miners sucking the aie from one place and throwing back the hot air in the back.
so added to big fans throwing some of the hot air out of the basement and this has created a cool air channel....
if you stand in front of the box you can feel a small breeze...
i layed down long cables to keep the auto relays ok and breakers and am so far doing ok
noticed that temperatures fell 2-3 degrees depending also on the outside temperatures...
just a smart positioning can help, this is why big mining centers also use the same technique.....

this one of the 3boxes

4  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: Selling 12 HP Z400 Desktops - USA Only - $700 (Sells on eBay for $1200+) on: June 09, 2021, 05:24:51 PM
Hi all,

I acquired quite a few HP desktops from my work in good condition, tested and made sure they all booted to bios. Specs are as follows:

All 12 have Xenon 3550 Quad core, 8GB DDR3, 475W standard size Bronze PSU, GPU Quadro 2000 on 9 of them, 3 of them have FX 1800 Graphics cards,  No hard drive/Windows OS

Trying to find a buyer within a state or two’s range of Cleveland Ohio if possible. This can be a very lucrative flip just to get hard drives and Win10 on them.

from your add its not clear if you sell them all for 700 or per pc guess its like this since they are old and without HD and OS

6  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: Most reliable Bitmain S9? (S9, S9i, S9J, S9K, S9 SE-13, 13.5, 14, 14.5, 16Th/s) on: June 04, 2021, 08:23:40 PM
one s9 running with nicehash firmware is the most stable of all 30pcs I have

This only because the miner is in a good condition, it would run just fine with the stock firmware, in other words, I don't think that nicehash firmware aka HiveOs is the reason why that miner is running stable.

Not that it matters to me at least I take all opinions equally regardless of the rank, in fact, many folks here who have legendary status and have been in this space for many years still don't understand the basics of bitcoin, but if for whatever reason you want to prove ownership of that addy you should at least sign a message.

i believe that someone here that has spent some time either reading to become legentary, or mining with spending his money on equipment trying to make it work has somehow learned how and what bitcoin is.
now there are many other things that are related to bitcoin as how to use it or how to spent it, or how to hodl it that it applies to all aspects of life and how we live it...

Τα επιτόκια προκύπτουν από τους ίδιους τους χρήστες που δανείζονται, οι οποίοι πληρώνουν ένα αντίτιμο για να δανειστούν και να τζογάρουν με μόχλευση (leverage/margin). Οι πλατφόρμες δανεισμού λειτουργούν σαν τα ανταλλακτήρια με την έννοια ότι συνδέουν χρήστες που θέλουν να δανειστούν με ανθρώπους που θέλουν να δανείσουν, δεν είναι ότι γεννιούνται χρήματα από το πουθενά. Οι άνθρωποι που δανείζονται πληρώνουν κάθε ώρα που διατηρούν ενεργό το δάνειο ένα μικρό ποσοστό επί του συνολικού ποσού και αυτό το αντίτιμο, πέρα από το όποιο fee της πλατφόρμας, καταλήγει στους δανειστές. Ως δανειστής συνήθως πληρώνεσαι στο ίδιο νόμισμα που δανείζεις αν και σε κάποιες πλατφόρμες μπορεί να έχεις την επιλογή να πληρωθείς σε δολάρια ή κάποιο token της συγκεκριμένης πλατφόρμας.

Επειδή ακόμα είναι λίγο άγρια δύση το πράγμα, όποιος ενδιαφέρεται να δανείσει ας το ψάξει αρκετά προτού προχωρήσει γιατί υπάρχουν ένα σωρό διαφορετικές πλατφόρμές (defi/cefi) με κυμαινόμενα ή "σταθέρα" επιτόκια (σε " γιατί δεν υπάρχει πραγματική εγγύηση ότι θα παραμείνουν μακροπρόθεσμα σταθερά) καθώς και αληθινό ρίσκο.

εγω παντως δεν θα εμπιστευομουν οπου εδιναν τοκο...με ενα μικρο προβλημα που θα ειχαν οπως εχει γινει και στο παρελθον κλειδωνουν τα withdraws και απλα μετα αν εχει συμβει κατι κακο στο ανταλακτηριο κλαις και κοιτας απλα...

επισης θα ηθελα να ξερω με τι κριτιρια δινουν δανειο σε BTC και ποιος ειναι τοσο ΜΑ@@@ να παρει δανειο σε κατι που σημερα εχει ενα ποσο χ και μετα απο 2 χρονια θα εχει παει πχ και το αναμενουμε 5φορες πανω...
πολυ tricky το ολο θεμα.

10  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: Where best to sell Antminer s17? 50x Pieces on: June 04, 2021, 09:37:24 AM
eBay would be a great place to sell but have you check your location if there is a local marketplace?
Amazon and aliexpress would also good place to sell

Anyway, you can also sell your units in this section


well I think he is in europe Macedonia is near greece and albania

He can sell to european market easier than the North American market.

He could try multiples of 5 or 10 vs 1 sale of 50 pieces.

The market place here uses escrow guys such as myself.

Mind you I am not doing an escrow offer here.

What can you get for them

personally I would never pay 4500 pounds for one of them.

 what are they worth with a btc sale maybe 2000 to 2500 pounds.  they do not have clawback like an ebay sale.

they earn 9.2 pounds a day and burn 50 to 60 k-watts a day  which could mean power cost is 3.2 pound so they net 6 pounds a day

2000/6= 333 days to break even
2500/6= 416 days to break even

good luck with your sale

all in all

the fact that they are in North Macedonia is that its out of European Union.
even with Greece that is closer than any other import taxes still have to be paid.
so price has to be friendly

14  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: Mining Strategies? % to hodl or upgrade on: June 03, 2021, 05:20:26 PM
Hello, I am trying to do in depth analysis using public data from 2016 on mining strategies. The main parameter here is how much profited coins to put towards upgrading the asics in any given month. Does anyone have any advice or data sources on this? I can share my results here in a post later. To summarize the public data used as input:

- btc price
- network difficulty
- network revenue
- available hardware efficiency (gh/j)

I'm finding estimating the hardware value at any given time to be difficult but I've been using a simple model of [ value = 12*(current revenue) ], also thought of as its roi on free electricity after a year.

My estimate from the past was that its better to hodl the coins in an uptrend and upgrade miners on a downtrend, but after looking at all the data and running simulations, I'm not really seeing that as clear.

i can tell you from my mistake and besides me someone else can learn too
i mined and grown my farm a lot.
i paid electricity and with profits i bought equipment for 3-4 years.
then came the down price from 1000+ usd to 220 and stayed there for 2 years.
i had to sell all my equipment and btc to pay electricity and other expenses and closed the project.
then after some years btc goes to 60.000 usd.

so lesson learned hodl the most you can with the anticipation it will rise and all rise sometime
the wall street golden boys from gold they go to oil
from oil to orange juice.
from orange juice to btc
btc then to another fiat
and then to another and another.

hodl and when the time comes you may become a whale

I am awaiting receipt of my S9i 14 Th/s which is due for delivery this week.

This will be my very first mining experience. (I look forward)  Grin

Do you have any advice on the quality of the S9s?

Is an S9i deemed more reliable than an S9, S9J, S9K, or others?

Thank you in advance

running S9i very good and stable
running S9 so and so
one s9 running with nicehash firmware is the most stable of all 30pcs I have

16  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: Why all cloud mining sites are scam without expect? on: June 03, 2021, 04:57:45 PM
According to my own research in the field of mining, I see an asic mining machine ($ 1000) generates about ($ 4) per day, let’s ridiculous dialogue about electricity I see online in some countries, Electricity is very cheap and some are very expensive. This is not the problem. Mining looks very profitable 0,4% per day is not bad. Ie: Why does not someone, even an honest "one" from this forum, establish this project, the members pay bitcoin (the interest is paid as they both agree) and he takes care of the rest of the things, What's the risk in that? And why is all cloud mining fraud?

What can happen that might spoil this, would the miners explode, for example? Grin

okay I will attempt to explain it as best I can. It is a long explanation.

Give me a minute to compose my thoughts.

Bitmain is the largest builder of gear.

Bitmain cut three deals this year.

With hashnest
with viabtc
with bitdeer.

I estimate they control more than 20% of the worlds hash in :


They build good asic miners.
They were selling s19pros which mine btc and or bch for 2k before the rally
They were selling L3+ for 300 usd back in the day
They now make an Eth e9 and most likely it cost them under 3k to build it.

why is any of the above important?

simple they can have 200% of the miners needed to mine


the gear is cheap for them. by not selling it to regular miners. they make mining cheaper for them selves and difficulty is lower for themseleves.

they then list gear with really long delivery dates and if mining profits for them are high they make them arrive later.

worse yet no one audits them.

so say they run 1 eth e9 miner to handle the eth contracts they have.

it makes 330 usd a day for 2800 watts

say they have an extra one and they run it making the same 330 usd for 2800 watts.

they use that 330 usd to buy btc.

and the 8 s19pro contracts that cost 3300 watts each are shut off.

they save 8 x 3300 watts. they pay the contracts with eth that purchased the btc.

they can juggle from btc to bch to eth to ltc/doge.

no one audits it.  this makes them pretty much unbeatable if you try to run a cloud mine against them.

i have 10 s17 pros doing 560th. the best way for me to profit is mine and cash out.

for me to do better i would need to do what bitmain is doing juggle the contracts around.

so rather then rent my 10 s17 out for a cloud i simply mine them.

thats the best way to explain it.

note i said bitmain juggles its contracts from gear to gear. i can not prove it.

but i can prove they if they chose to juggle the contracts like i say they do they have the ability to do it.

so they can do it if they want to and save lots of power and money if they do it.

only someone with extra cheap gear can do it.

and it only pays for a major builder to do it.

1000% truth...
i have bought directly from Bitmain miners that they did not even bother to clean from the Chinese dust.
so when they came to use in new original boxing they had very high temps.
To our surprise we understood that these miners were used for at least six to ten months and not just quality tested.
also in another direct again purchase from bitmain the delayed my delivery for nearly 20 days in high profits.
that to be said you all now now when you buy a new miner,  Bitmain already mines with the next generation
and as we all know if you want to predict the future just create it.
also the fact that nobody audits them its  a problem.
a lot of money pass and nobody knows if they are shared equally on the pools.
but thats the situation and we know it.

18  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: HELP ! miner Love A1, mining does not start.. (flashing ethernet light) on: June 02, 2021, 07:00:18 PM
It could be a faulty control board, or a bad PSU, nobody here has a crystal ball, you need to provide more details, since you flashed the miner with different firmware it means you have access to the miner's GUI, get us the kernel log ( it could be called syslog or systemlog on your miner), also post a screenshot of your pool/worker details, you can hide any sensitive data if you wish.

first check the internet cables, even a good looking cable may be problematic.
then check if you can see the miner in your network and try to see if there are any readings
PSU is the next as mentioned from an0ther user
next unplug all cables and plug them again

check all system again

I made this post in two categories; first to encourage the newbie and second to advice the old members.

For the newbie, I believe most of us are sharing in my wish. My wish to become a legend, a legend with so much merits and positive trust.  But dreams do not come true without hardwork.
First we must appreciate and accept our newbie status by showing the inclination to learn.
We should learn by keen observations, by reading through the posts of the old members, this will help pattern our attitude in the forum, it will also help us to grow with the norms and ethics of the forum.
By so doing our passion for the forum will be high, it is the passion that creates the way to success.

For the Old members, I will liken the forum to a building from foundation to roofing.
The building at the foundation stage does not make it less building, but it is the stage at which the engineer puts much efforts and expertise. Take the newbie as the foundation, help us grow, for if the foundation is wrongly laid, it will have a significant negative effects at the completion stage.

Congratulations to me for having an account in this forum, I am looking forward to a rapid and sustainable growth with your help.

in this site can happen also the opposite
a Hero or a Legentary member can have his account hacked and return back the start...
happened to me

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Mining with GT 710s and 1030s? on: June 01, 2021, 08:11:09 PM
There is not much difference between 1030 and 1050 when it comes to mining reward per month, they are less power hungry so no matter what your electricity bill is per month you won't feel a thing, it's better to use a pool or software with low payout because it will take longer to reach minimum payout
Using a pool or software with low payout is not what is needed here cause mining with GT 710s and 1030s is never profitable if put the time spent into consideration except if the coin is newly created with future promising.

It better to get a cheap hardware miner than using the GPU this day thats the reason people don't use the equipment OP spoke of.

depends on what you want to hodl
if its btc then you mine something else with your card then sell if to get btc
currently with your card you can mine ravencoin that its most profitable.
to give you an idea if you mine btc in a pool will take you months to get a payout
or never prossibly
