These are called vIRLs and because they can be traded instantly they are worth more than physical sneakers on sites like Stockx. The same pair of sneakers are often traded several times a day or even occasionally several times a minute.

Notbatman:

- On BlackArrow all I know is I bought 100 units from them and they refunded 2/3rds of my money when I asked them (they were no longer profitable and they had some shipping delays) and they didn't have to do the refund but they did. They shipped me approximately 40 FPGA miners which worked great. Since that time I have no idea what they are doing. The experience I had with them went well. So Yes kudos to them for that.

- On KNCMiner. I bought around 40 units from them (actually did the very first pre-order with them or at least this is what they told me). Didn't get a single one. It is a long story but to say the least I wasn't happy with the ending.

You may and others may have had a bad or good experience with either of the companies. I am just relaying my experience with them.

Bruno K.: No way I am going to feed the trolls here. I have no doubt I would lose as anyone who reads these forums know that you are the King of Trolls =).

P.S: For fun on your posts on me (I know you spent a lot of time researching my posts to troll me so I will reply this one time).
- Black Arrow guys actually refunded 2/3rds of my money. So Kudos to them.
- Not sure what that second part is about. I can't even put it in context as I didn't write it.
- F*CK KnCMiner

Also, just to take the high road here: I sent 10 BTC over to Sean's Outpost.

I cut and pasted my response form the other Brock hate thread:

Truth from a long time friend, enemy, business partner & competitor:

Pretty amazing the amount of damage someone can do with some fake facebook accounts. I have to wonder what the agenda is here and if it has something to do with the Bitcoin Foundations elections...or worse someone trying to hurt Bitcoin as Brock is one of the most outspoken people in the Bitcoin space.

I clicked on Brock's timeline on his real facebook for the supposed above dates and he was in Los Angeles, California and not in Spain. Don't let someone troll you with fake facebook accounts.
Instead of reading all this made up crap and coming up with a bad opinion I suggest you reach out to him and talk to him yourself.

The true facts are pretty simple:
- Brock was associated with Rector when he was a teenager. I don't know any details. I personally think he was a victim. He has never mentioned it and I don't bring it up.
- Think about this one: Brock was my #1 competitor. If I could have used it against him I probably would have if there was something to use.
- Most everything is about money. People sue and make stuff up to try to get you to pay something. Sadly this is how it is.
- If you noticed on the lawsuit on his partners suing Brock for cheating his partners I took no part of because it was mostly lies.
- Brock makes more money for his investors that you know. He might fail in 3 out of 4 of his companies but that fourth one makes so much money for his investors which is why they keep investing in them.
- People get fired from businesses which why you only hear their side of the story and its always negative.
- I can also guarantee you without a doubt is Brock is a lover of women (so much that I fear that it keeps getting him into trouble).

From someone who knows all the facts. There is some agenda being played out here. What a better way to take one of Bitcoin's star advocates and link him to Paedophilia. This is FUD in the worst possible way.

As for Sunlot I suggest you guys read the FAQ before bashing it and make your own opinions and reach out to John if something isn't on there and get a real answer. Its your money after all.

I bought 40 or so from them. Overall a smooth transaction and I received them when they said. They are still working today (though doubtful I am making anything from them). I would personally buy from them again based on my previous experience in June. (I didn't read this whole thread so I don't know if things have changed since then and I am just stating my experience for others).

Keep in mind Digital Ocean limits you to 5 instances for Crypto mining. They actually DO NOT want you to Crypto mine on their servers.

Send BTC to 17QRhLCdENZkNbLDxDq1CP9gJyQD61Kthu (or not. Really not stressing it either way). I saw you did some updates on github to various things I actually like so its all good either way.

I need some MMC for testing right now. Give me 1MMC for 0.05 BTC, and post your BTC address.

I have a decent amount due to the protoshares premine and might let some go if the price is right.

Keep in mind even though these are slow to mine right now there is already 730,000 of these pre-mined so don't let people scam you into paying a ton of money for this coin. You are much better off just buying protoshares in that case. I am not trying to talk people out of wanting to buy my coins but one thing is a fair deal and the other is the blatant pump and dumping going on in this thread.

Looking to buy some more of this. I have some shares already but would like some more. Shoot me a PM if you are interested in selling with your price. (Please make sure to include your price. Don't ask me how much I will pay for them).

17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Smart people: How do you secure the private key on publicly sold paper wallets? on: August 24, 2013, 01:55:55 AM
tl;dr - How do you secure the private key on publicly sold paper wallets (coins, cards, bills etc)?

Since there are a lot of smart people on these forums I figured I would bring this up here and see if anyone can come up with a solution to what I think would change the security of Bitcoin in a big way.

I am a huge fan of paper wallets. So much that I store all my Bitcoin on paper.. When I go out to eat I even tip the waiter/waitress in Bitcoin by pre printing out some piper paper wallets and leaving one as a tip with a note on how to use it.

Over the years I have watched people sell Bitcoin cards with holograms, Bitcoin bearer bonds, Bitcoin paper money etc and have seen these same wallets have the funds stolen from them because the creator knew the private key. There are close to 60,000 BTC in unopened Casascius coins out there. I know I would lose a bit of sleep knowing at if this 7 million in value turned into 700 million and someone decided to claim the coins because they had the private keys backed up somewhere.

What I would like to create is a Bitcoin card that you can buy with absolute confidence that only you know the private key. Then anyone can put Bitcoin in cold storage without any fear of it being hacked.

Imagine being able to buy an empty Bitcoin card and push any amount of Bitcoin to it and know with 100% certainty that this Bitcoin is secure as long as Bitcoin is (ie: proper random number generation, only inbound transactions etc, no brain wallet keys etc). Then you just send BTC to this address and watch it on the blockchain without ever losing any sleep.

To pull this off though there needs to be a way to put the private key on the card without actually having an opportunity for an employee or manufacturer or anyone for that matter to see it without breaking the tamper mechanism. Even more importantly that the end user knows that his key is secure and known only by him and that the key will actually work when he goes to access it.

One idea that might work would be a multi signature approach where you need both the private key on the card and the private key that you generate online to access the BTC then the creator can't steal the BTC.

I would recommend: https://github.com/jtobey/bitcoin-abe which then dumps everything into a database (PostgreSQL, MySQL's InnoDB engine, and SQLite).  You can then query that database for everything you need or run the web server and query that.

Its Linux based so if you want to do this in Windows just setup a Linux Virtual machine with Vmware or Virtual Box for running Abe.

19  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Avalon ASIC users thread on: August 20, 2013, 05:36:01 AM
I tried this today with a TP-LINK TL-WR703N  20130703 but it looks like it bricked it. After the flash I couldn't connect to it at all.  Also, unlike the routers in the Avalons or a Raspberry PI it required an external power supply to work but when I used it the Avalon wouldn't power up at all. Am I missing a hardware mod or something?

Was happily running 20130703 since release with no issues at all. Highly recommended (on 20 or so units - batch 1 and 2, on my batch 3's I just run stock because of the temp sensor change etc). I saw the new firmware and decided to give it a shot on a batch 1 and it bricked it. No reset or nothing could get it back.

I figured no problem. I picked up some extra TL-MR3020 to replace the TP-LINK TL-WR703N router but those didn't flash and in the end I gave up on messing with that (from what I can tell you need a custom one or something).


A retail TP-Link 703n can be found on eBay or Amazon for about $20.  It can be flashed with the 20130703 firmware, and then plugged into the USB cable inside the Avalon.  The LAN cable or WiFi can be used to access it.  It has a mini-USB power cable.  I ran a for-repair Avalon a few hours this way before I got the soldering iron and made a permanent repair.

Kano - Awesome! Will check them out. Thanks for doing this.

Thanks =). I will pick up an extra one. Though I really love having everything running on Arch Linux. Makes it easier to make tools for.

I build Arch RPi binaries also Smiley
(that of course include avalon - I have a BTB - but include all cgminer USB)
