1  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: BTC Mining Pools List on: Today at 12:06:32 AM
Just wanted to bring this to the thread as there is a new consideration for pools.

Some new gear out there comes equipped with Overt Asic Boost and can only be used on pools that support it.

From what I've seen here are the pools currently supporting Asic Boost:

Kano Pool    
Ck Pool and Ck Solo
Slush Pool
Poolin Pool
Bitcoin India Pool

There may be others, I'm asking manufacturers of this gear if they have a list of all supported pools. I will update this post if I find other pools.

To help differentiate legitimate sellers from scammers you should take a look here Posting guidelines for physical goods

Focus on photos, Escrow and transparent communication.

Thanks for the explanation that clears it up for me. I've always been curious about the inner workings of miners, this one just seemed peculiar with the more boards/better efficiency.

Hopefully, someone picks one up and provides some updates/photos.

I didn't think there was an issue with the way you post, as verified by hiariousandco.

I tend to get a laugh, or assume you are having a crisis of identity at the moment. Now I just have the boring facts about your ignore list.

Maybe give everyone on your ignore list a chance? By unignoring them for a period of time to see if you encounter anything unpleasant again from them or not.

I don't use ignore myself, but if I did taking everyone off would be the last thing I'd do. I think the work around of spending some time as one of the "Jets" is a good workaround. I'm sure the shock of logging in under the alt is enough, so Jet still needs a safe space for their eyes in the end.

Bitfily has delivered their Snow Panther B1+, I have 2 running for a couple of days, they are performing as advertised so far.

After seeing photos of the miner and hashrate, posted in the linked discussion thread they have been added.

I have also Added whether or not the miners require an Asic Boost supported Pool. If you see an error please let me know, as this information can be difficult to find at times.
6  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: BTC Miner Snow Panther B1+ on: October 16, 2018, 03:24:43 PM
Thanks for the updates. I'll add them to the current hardware thread, with a link here for the discussion about the miner.

My sales person can pool a few of us together, even with different shipping addresses since I am working with possible distributors in Mexico.

Just to be sure when you bought your it was part of a 100 unit order? Sounds like you were pooled in with others/businesses.

Any chance you have or took a photo of the shipment? I'm just trying to get an idea of how many of these they were able to deliver or ship out so far. Anyways I'm satisfied that I've seen at least one.

I previously bought 3 741's from MiningBaby. They showed up new and packaged the same as other 741's I received from distributors. You can check their untrusted feedback in their trust to see details.

There is a lot of liability and risk involved that I do not feel comfortable with offloading to others, with nothing short of hiring a lawyer to draft a contract.

That makes sense. It is also something to consider for your own risk. I'm guessing though that you figure it will last long enough to ROI your Generator and equipment. Who knows in the long run you might find that an acquaintance or family/friend who decide to jump in. Hosting for these people would be a lot less risk as you could talk with them about the risks beforehand.

Don't forget the Maple syrup, god damn Canadians have been manipulating the Maple Syrup market by hoarding the stuff for decades!

By not spending money on bombers the Us is doing just fine with Maple Syrup, we even imported some.

As for the Ice, definitely come during November to May, plenty to go around.
9  Other / Meta / Re: How to report post burster? on: October 15, 2018, 06:17:20 PM
I've never seen this outside of applying for a Sig Campaign.

If they are doing this in spammy megathreads it's only part of the issue; as the manager should have some standards.

Regardless in a discussion thread there is no reason to do this, you can always jump in at anytime; so "report to moderator" should be fine. The only problem with this being effectively reported is you have to catch and report it before they update it; otherwise they haven't really broken a forum rule. I don't know how the rule is interpreted by Mods/Admin in regards to updating posts in quick succession.

To make sure it is seen, you can use to capture the moment. I would suggest however when doing that, to wait a couple hours at least or as you say it could be days. This will show the merit of your accusation.

On top of reporting to moderator, send the evidence to the campaign manager. This is where they will feel the most punishment IMO by possible being booted from the campaign and/or not being paid for the week.

One thing I have been doing is going through these threads is reporting any spam within the last week; to prevent them receiving payment. I do that because a lot of the shitposters only post the minimum required so that they can fill the quota on other accounts; or their lazy... maybe both.

They have to build the stealth bombers so Trump can invade Canada!

Having had enough industrial equipment designed and manufactured in the US fail to meet expectations at certain points in time; I suggest doing so anytime between October and May.

We're all in our homes so we won't see it coming. Thanks to another great innovation we do have an Opiod army of sleepers at the ready willing to do anything.

If they weren't going to spend the money developing this, they would spend it on some other weapon for another inevitable conflict. Though if any governement followed the money on these defence contracts they could probably do it for half.

wouldn't it have been better to spend the money on improving the domestic infrastructure in the US,

This isn't as flashy and doesn't earn votes or campaign contributions.

There is the possibility this is a brother is my father/uncle/grandpa ; or sister is mom/auntie/grandma

I'm pretty sure Suchmoon has it correct though by catching all the linguistic clues pointing to Alts.

Jumping in late though I have to laugh that the defense was I posted it again but it was from the wrong account, which either way was going to be copy/paste; because you still can't go around doing that with your own posts.
12  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Current List of Competitive Hardware - October 2018 on: October 15, 2018, 05:03:52 PM

There is a discussion thread regarding this miner.

That link will direct you to a post of mine within the thread, feel free to post in that thread. Once enough validating information has been collected I'll add this company and hardware.

Edited: If you can post screenshots of the status page and the logs to review that would be great. So far we haven't seen this, or packaging. Could maybe do with some pics from the sides as well to get a good picture of the total miner.
13  Other / Meta / Re: I've given 2 merits to a poster, and I'd like to help them. on: October 15, 2018, 03:34:59 PM
Man OP and Jet cash seem to have the same problems. *smug grin*

This seems to be the type of member you are looking for. I suggest the PM method; but use it to explain and invite them to the "Fit to Talk" initiative. You could then end the PM with an edited version of the post, showing how you can assist them.

I only suggest the extra work as that appears to be what you want to do to improve the forums quality. This way you have put out your offer and they can choose the next step, other than that you have fulfilled your position as a cog in the merit system.
14  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Unexplained wealth order on: October 15, 2018, 02:47:14 PM
I suggest you do some reading on the difference between common law and maritime admiralty law. The system of contract law/maritime law has been trying very hard to crush the last few remaining common law court systems. Common law is where all of our human rights stem from, especially in the US. The commercial system has long been in the process of subverting these rights via manufactured consent. One of the results of this is that it doesn't matter what you do or who you are, if they want what you have they can take it. It is not hard under the crushing bureaucracy of federal laws (maritime code) to manufacture pretext to do so.  I have seen it myself. Under this system we are simply chattel property waiting in line for our turn to be harvested. The solution is common law and human rights. We have the legal framework, we just have to enforce it rather than being tricked into submitting.

I guess I haven't noticed that as much, again the blissful ignorance of being in North America. I know my family has seen the reach of governments when they "need" land or the likes. This has usually been done in a manner of a bill passing through whichever level of government claims jurisdiction.

My focus here though wasn't so much in how the legal framework of a country would allow this situation. I was more concerned with the idea snowballing; mostly because a government of any size at anytime can make an argument to begin these types of overreach's IMO. I see this first case as an easy win for the prosecuting persecuting nation because they will have cherry picked the best case to put this forward looking for a win. Once it can be proven that it has legs and can catch the criminals hiding in plain site; they should expand it's reach and find more in broader categories.

Governments around the world have become way too big and they need money to maintain their growth.

I think this intrusive actions will intensify as governments will dig deeper to extract more from its citizens.  A few years back they shut down offshore banking for non-residents, now they look deeper.

Governments in most cases are running like a business. A poorly run business, so they do tend to try and scramble to find money in all the wrong places. That is the concern I had with the situation in the OP snowballing.

The solution is not to be tied to one particular country, have multiple passports, maintain residency in tax-free locale while keeping money in multiple locations around the world.  Go where they treat you best.  Keep everything under corporation names.

Nelson Rockefeller famously said: "Own nothing but control everything"

Leave it to a Rockefeller. Personally I have no issue paying taxes for what is needed (that obviously varies from person to person). My issue arises from the "breaks" and "loopholes" that exist in the system to create an unequal taxation system; top that off with an extreme amount of government spending waste.

I do like this overall discussion of law, one of my college courses actually made me consider it as a profession. That and I really used to enjoy a good debate on how to interpret situational facts and how they applied to the case.

With the Magna Carta talk, as has been the practice in a peoples uprising the king would have been considered lucky to get the option between signing and dying. This however actually started as a deal between a king and the Barons, not exactly the people.

I brought up what I did because that is exactly how the premise you put forward in your OP is being executed around the world. It is in fact expanding its reach as income dwindles and they need fresh meat. *snip*

Not a problem, I like the way the conversation has evolved on this topic. It is nice to have multiple angles to look at. You've given me a few things to read up on in my free time.

Because fans are 140mm it's easy to think they are smaller, so one pic is next to a T9+.

Thanks for the pic posting tip.

Hey thanks for the photo. You're the first I've seen with one of these, glad it's working out for you.

Do you mind posting a few more photos. Something with the packaging? Also a screen cap of the status page showing hashrate?

Considering you have one and no one on the forum has done a review you may want to consider that.

I was also wondering did you have to get it through a re seller? The website has a MOQ of 100 when I check. I've been watching your updates and gathering info before adding them to that pinned thread.
Thanks for taking the time to update the community.
16  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: AvalonMiner 921 released - 20 TH/s @ 1800W on: October 14, 2018, 09:16:41 PM
I don't know why Canaan insists on this side bullshit.  We don't care about a lower power unit, that's what a 841 is for.  We want the 30th at 2000watts unit like was mentioned before this came out, efficiency is better than just lower power usage what the hell.

Well luckily for us home miners they are bringing that efficiency out in smaller models as well.  

I'd love to throw a couple of these beasty 2000w+ units in my garage year round, it's not as easy to move them into the house in winter to offset my heating bill.

Now I'm eagerly awaiting both announcements. Considering the only other company that announced something like this is looking more like vaporware every day, all eyes are back on Canaan for me atm.
17  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: My Plan on: October 14, 2018, 01:07:45 AM
Had to read back a little.

Honestly right now you can get 741's for like 20 -50$.

Of the ones I've run they tend to average around 7.8 TH/S.

Realistically with shipping going up based on more units you could grab 4-10 of these right now and get hashing away. And be well ahead. Even grab a few extra in case you need parts, I've only had one board fail in the 12 I've run... and I'm pretty sure it was a heat issue .

I'll look again but I believe it was cryptouniverse that had them on extremely cheap. If you want i can also reach out to a Canadian guy i bought a few off a couple months ago, he got burned with a pricey pallet and held on to them to long. new
I look some more in a bit and see if I can find the other listings I had noticed

Does it show as banned if a newbie account gets nuked?

Just speculating based on the low quality comment.


I found many comments of other members almost similar to my comment. I didn't copied their comments.

This alone would have led to the post getting deleted. Now that you mention an Ann thread I'm wondering if they were incentivizing posting.
19  Other / Meta / Re: My Posts Getting Deleted on: October 13, 2018, 04:57:57 PM
Considering your account was not banned there's a good chance they may have been redundant posts in threads that have become a hotbed for spam.

Did you receive a PM stating a post/reply if yours was deleted? If not then it was the whole thread being trashed. It happens.

Having posts deleted isn't a major concern either. I've had several deleted, it happens. Before you post just think has this been said a bunch of times in the thread? Am I adding anything of value to the conversation?

Good luck.

There are like 100 threads on this subject and frodocooper just nukes them, and thank god he does this.

Very true.

Edit: Yeah hoodwinked scrolling mobile, this is why I wish threads auto locked after a certain amount of time.

*snip* To change efficiency there has to be some regulator adjustment, or changing the number of nodes in a fixed-volt string.

Forgive my ignorance.

When your talking about the nodes is that in the circuitry, or would that refer to the number of hashboards connected?
