Just another day, got hospital bills in, they are insane!

I feel for anyone without insurance.

I'll probably get sued noway as there is no way I'm paying 4500 for an ambulance ride (not the first one but the second one to the trauma center which wasn't an emergency).

In the mean time enjoy.

Thinking of throwing yet more coin in and building out the node out to properly and respectably rep this fruity thread... In the top 500 for capacity already  Cheesy

Yeah, threw another coin onto the node and looking to establish some quality channels now. Pretty much routed to all the major hubs. Now to look for niches.

There are some nodes that only accept 0.01 BTC maximum for connecting. Fuck that. Not even worth it establishing a channel for that. I'm looking at doing at least 0.05 BTC channels, so, that'll be the limiting factor for me on how I expand out.

Assholes.

Is this profitable?

If so, in your experience how much coin would I have to throw at it to make it so?

Beyond the "help the network" angle I mean ....

How about elaborating on that a little more, somac.?  Wink ELI5...

Ways to make an income from your current stash:

1. Lend your coins. celsius.network etc
2. Sell BTC futures
3. Sell BTC covered calls

Take your pick on which works best. And yes for some of those things you may have to deliver but, you are in it for the income, just buy the BTC back, even if it is at a higher a price, rinse and repeat.

Hint: covered calls are a great way to sell you BTC, rather than the traditional sell at certain price point on normal exchange.

1. Lending makes me very nervous. The counterparty risk won't let me sleep easily. My precioussss!! The good side is, it is unlike selling because you don't forfait your btc, but cash in interest - that's how it works, right?

2. Sell futures for cash seems a little more acceptable. It is tantamount to selling, though.

3. I like this. I imagine it is something like this: sell covered calls by posting btc collateral, and actually sell the btc at the strike price on expiry. Do you have any idea where that is possible?



You are correct. Deribit and FTX, are 2 places that I know off the top of my head. And you don't have to always post a full BTC as collateral, you can use margin, but then run risk of margin call.

There is of course the risk of a big price move in one month meaning you will miss out on a lot of capital appreciation.

Any guesses on how long it is until there's something close to an FDIC insured account that'll generate some interest?

All those options exceed my risk tolerance, but I am all about the never having to cash out / live off the interest lifestyle, if it can be swung.

Biodom / Bawb / all,

Hey. Lurker since ..... whenever this account was created back in the day. Not OG, but close enough.

I've actually logged in to my account intermittently to post / ask about this very issue several times since then.

Bawb - if you end up going this route, please post up your experiences.

I look forward to the day I can cash out without having to cash out. That's the dream.

Still hung up on the not your keys, not your coins - but a brother would REALLY like some interest.

Thanks.

Easy.

Secure. Your. Fiat.

Don't mince about selling the BTC needed to buy that apartment. Too much risk / large transaction to gamble on.


N00bs should think about getting interest on some of their coin. And pay the loan for the apartment with the interest from the coin. And they don't need to sell their coin. Smiley  Roll Eyes





Great - so point me to a reputable place I can do that?


'Cause to now, I sure haven't been able to find one.

Hey all,

Long time reader, long time holder, ex long time miner ... prolly (I think?) first time poster. Usually don't login to read the WO, so the name will not be familiar to the regulars, but I've been here a while.

Holding since .... late 2012(?) maybe .... certainly around Risto times - definitely before Searing (I remember when Searing was just searing, before he was "Brad"). Also remember that dude from HI who convinced everyone he lost his BTC and then scammed some people.....

As a miner I was around for the whole BFL debacle, and got some really good mileage out of my KNC rig before that turned in to a scam.

Annnnnyway.

Canadian (so, looking at Jimbo, maybe(?) for this advice) - but .... likely looking to cash out some coin and retire soon-ish.

Problem is, I'm not that old (late 30ish) and have a pretty solid gig with good benefits and all that.

I really need some advice around the tax hit I might take, and how much I really need to not just live, but live well during the next 40, 50 (+) years.

I recognize I can run the numbers myself (and I have), but looking for confirmation that I've not been off on any assumptions. Question is, who does one ask? Is this an accountant (EY, KPMG, etc?) type question, or a wealth advisor (who best I can tell is just a dope off the street with a spreadsheet) or ... someone else?

Never been much of a money focused dude (beyond knowing that BTC was a revolutionary idea when I heard it) - so - I really don't know who to ask.

I'd rather not dump 5-600 bucks on a meeting that will be no help. I'd like to emerge with a plan with firm numbers and targets attached.

Hey - looooong time lurker ..... longer time holder. Think this may be my first time posting.

Long time interested in earning interest. To date, all methods of doing that just seemed like a good way to lose whatever coin I elected to lend.

However, been looking at blockfi lately.

Anyone have any experience with it?

Paying interest in bitcoins is a very simple play. Scammers will get your bitcoins with pleasure and sell them for fiat at the very moment they get them. They will even pay you interest if bitcoin price goes down and will show you the middle finger if price goes up. This is why only retards are looking for places where they can deposit their bitcoins to earn interest!


Thanks for reminding me why I don't post.

Appreciate the link psycodad - will be interested to see your experience.

@Phoenix - Cheers man - and thanks for the helpful stuff over the thread.

What island you on?
I'm on Oahu for a while in January - figure least I could do is buy the hot-hashing "pioneer" a beer Smiley

Phoenix:

Not having a go here, I assure you. Just wondering, because I'd like to know where to rank what you say.

In the past, because I follow this board, I've seen your ... hundreds of posts.
Some have been helpful, and I found some, like I'm sure a lot here did - kind of hilarious, as we watched you stumble through trying to set up your first saturn and posting here every 10 minutes ... then, the more recent "humblebrags" that have served to make some people angry.

That said, some of you stuff has been genuinely helpful.

But, to my question:
Can you disclose the nature of your relationship with KNC please? Like, fully? ... ie: what discounts you may or may not have gotten, etc?

Again, not having a go at you .... just wondering what weight to put on what you say. And, I don't mean that negatively. Like, I envy your close relationship. Same as I envy bitcoinorama for stepping up like he did. He earned his rep here as a solid dude, and his position shouldn't be begrudged.

At any rate, genuinely curious, not trying to be a dick. Feel free to PM, if you'd rather do that.

- Canadian early Oct. Jup owner, for the record.

Thanks soy.

Hey all,

Just wondering what the channel name / network for the KNC IRC channel.

Thanks
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Swedish ASIC miner company kncminer.com on: November 21, 2013, 05:39:39 AM
Hey guys,

Not strictly KNC related, but related enough 'cause I think a lot of October guys are probably in the same boat as me right now ... and 'cause I only really read THIS thread on bitcointalk. 

Anyway, in terms of fiat, I've broken even now if I cash out (this isn't about the semantics of that phrasing, btc vs fiat breakeven etc) - this is about the mechanics.

I'm canadian, so cavirtex.com is probably the preferred option, but I'm a dope, so I'm checking ... 'cause gox's price is higher.

Have any canadians here cashed out through gox and can tell me about the fees charged on the bank transfers?
/ cashed out through cavirtex and can comment on those?
/ can recommend some alternate that leads to the least amount of btc / $ leaving me on the cashout?

In short, can some people here talk about the best way to get my btc into fiat with the least amount of pain (pain being defined as loss in $ or btc)

I just want to cash out enough so I can say "at least I'm not out any money" if the price plummets, and hold the rest in the hope that it settles into a steady climb.

Thanks in advance

Understood. Appreciate the quick reply.

On the first bit - is my assumption that I'm unable to use the upgrades on a four connector jupiter without soldering in new ones on my own correct? (just not keen to start soldering stuff on my one and only controller board myself).

Thanks.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Swedish ASIC miner company kncminer.com on: November 11, 2013, 11:39:30 PM
So, I have a four connector jupiter. Do I take this to mean I can't use an upgrade module without soldering a connector in myself?

Also - O'RAMA - does KNC view this as constituting the "preferential treatment" they promised to 1st batch orders? ... or do we still get front of the line (I'm talking even ahead of november orders) for 2nd gen?

Just .... while I am grateful to have a 1st gen jupiter ... it WAS a week late, and now I find I'm not able to use an upgrade module ... like ... the little losses are starting to add. A btc here and there IS starting to make a difference.

Thanks.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Swedish ASIC miner company kncminer.com on: October 24, 2013, 01:14:10 AM
Hey - just as an update to earlier ...

Ended up getting a Coolermaster Silent Pro 1000w to replace the XFX Pro 1050w Black.

Popped in the exact same paperclip and it worked first try - been hashing at 554 stable for 4-5 hours now.

So, O'rama, I dunno .... maybe it was just that supply, or maybe it's an XFX thing, but I couldn't paperclip trick that particular supply.

Guy at the store had a thermaltake power supply tester, and it was giving all the right numbers on that, so ... I dunno.

That was my experience anyway.

Tried that XFX a few more times, jiggling the clip, jamming it in, just plain monkeying with it ... and I could never get it to spin up.

And again, thanks to the forum members for chipping in with the advice earlier. Nice to know it wasn't just me being puzzled.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Swedish ASIC miner company kncminer.com on: October 23, 2013, 07:08:33 PM
Weird.

But thanks for double checking me crumbs / all.

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Swedish ASIC miner company kncminer.com on: October 23, 2013, 07:01:26 PM
There's only one green wire, and that's the one the paperclip's on.

Never jumped this power supply before, since I bought it specifically for the jupiter, but I HAVE done this on other power supplies ... so I'm confident I'm jumping it correctly.

It's the other stuff that's puzzling to me.

Like, the fans spin up, then nothing. That seems odd.

Anyway, working on the assumption it's a dead PS - off to the local computer store to get a tester on it / buy a new one.

Weird though, that it would be dead out of the box. Still seems much more likely I've boned something.
