Unusuable on my android using opera?
Thanks for the heads up. My main target browser for now is Safari on iOS devices because WatchMine uses features that are not present in Opera. I have some other feature requests to complete then I'll see what can be done about Opera compatibility.

Donation sent. Thanks for the app.  Grin
Much appreciated. I'll work on Eligius support next.

can you at least tell us if you use a USB or HDD?
Why? Would it make a difference to your continued investment?

Nice site, is it possible to reorder the entries? The Edit page only seems to let me remove items Sad
Moving badges is now implemented. Click the Edit button and move away. Smiley

I think it is important that there is some way for shareholders to verify the hashing power of the cluster, so I am planning on having the computers back on a pool that allows for this by the end of the weekend.

This is possible with BTC Guild by using your API key.

For example: http://guildco.in/fetch.php?apikey=337dafb4ecef139340b27358d690a6a7
Shameless Plug: WatchMine will track the rate for both BTC Guild and BTCMine. Design for iOS but works okay on desktop and droid.

Five rigs are ~$950/.90 Ghash/sec
Two rigs are ~$1050/.85 Ghash/sec
Two rigs are ~$1300/.95 Ghash/sec

There are a lot of IRL companies that keep trade secrets from their shareholders.

Yeah, no wonder he wants to call it a "trade secret". He'd catch a lot of flack for building inefficient miners. There's nothing special about those builds. There are hundreds of people on this forum that could build better systems.
Maybe, but how many are selling shares in there efforts?

Wooo, 4 bitcents!  Cheesy  Better than nothing I suppose...  Smiley

It's more than you would get for interest at a normal bank account.
I worked it out on the first dividend payout - for an earlyish investor at 0.75btc per share the first dividend payout represented around 30% annualised return. The second dividend payout brought the annualised returns around 40%.

I think I only have 2 shares, but how can I confirm that I received the dividends?  I don't remember any strange payments to any of my addresses.  Does the dividend go to my account on the stock exchange?
Dividends go to your GLBSE balance. Use the GLBSE client to check your balance and/or transfer it back to your Bitcoin wallet.
Each dividend payout has been just over 2 bitcents per share.

SkepsiDyne is neither a legal entity by SEC standards nor is inside trading a crime in my view.  Shouldn't those willing to take risks get the rewards of early access to info regarding those risks?  Can government limit speech?

This is not the place to be talking about the law, but assuming the Bitcoin community loves free markets, free flowing information, and a consistent moral code, insider secrets should be regarded by non shareholders as irrelevant to their own affairs.
I only mention the law not because it applies but because this is custom that has evolved over hundreds of years of securities trading. Looking at the history of some past dodgy deals I'm quite glad of it.

To answer your question: How do you choose who is "morally" entitled to inside info? What if I paid tawsix for inside info 48 hours ahead of public announcements? Wouldn't that give me quite a bit advantage? What if tawsix used his insider position to dump his shares because the building burnt down - he'd have a few hours to do so all the time claiming an internet outage or a power cut.
This is not a free speech issue. This is a control on the dissemination of the speech. I'm not claiming its a government issue, I'm claiming its a moral issue. You also know that free speech has limits: lying, fraud, blackmail, "fire" in a theatre etc. have all evolved as legal limits on free speech. Insider trading is limit for similar reasons - all moral ones.

This is a moral debate. As an earlier poster said too often people think they're doing some new and special here and instead are setting up a new "wild west". Stock exchanges evolved rules (eventually set into law) because it benefited their customers. I'm not saying all those systems and rules are good - except this one.

Free flowing info? Yes I agree everybody should have access to it: Shareholders and non-shareholders (who want it). So if there is insider info let's publicly release it. I think I will.

No insider secrets are relevant to potential shareholders.

I can image we're never going to agree - so it's probably going to come down to who holds more shares: you or I. Happy voting.

This looks great!

Can you add support for BitcoinPool and Eligius?
BitcoinPool stats: https://www.bitcoinpool.com/user.php?u=<username>&json=1
Eligius stats: http://eligius.st/~luke-jr/raw/3/balances.json
That latter page shows a list of all user information, formatted as
Quote
"<wallet ID>":{"balance":####,"oldest":####,"newest":####},
Thanks for the info. I'll investigate adding these soon.

Support for re-arranging entries is high on the priority list. Since the mtgox hack I've been working more on hardening the server-side code and changing the client to make it more secure instead.

There are a lot of IRL companies that keep trade secrets from their shareholders. In fact, securities law prohibits sharing information with shareholders that is not also made available to the general public at the same time. Shareholders are shareholders - they are not managers or even directors. In some countries shareholders that start to act like managers lose their limited liability shield.

I respect tawsix's right to keep the exact rig recipe secret and support his reasons for doing so.  The information he has chosen to share is fine by me (price and hashing speed). I do not support (and neither should Nefario if he wants to legitimise GLBSE) secret information being made shareholder only. If shareholders don't like this they can always sell or just not buy in the first place.
16  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: WatchMine (beta) - Mobile website for mining pool stats and bitcoin prices on: June 28, 2011, 01:48:25 PM
nice app! web-apps are the future I guess.. will work on iPhone (and Android?) without the need for the app store.
Thanks for your intereste! Yes. WatchMine works on Android 2.2 - I tested on my wife's phone.

OP: Great work. Using the ideas from your spreadsheet I can properly calc my savings wallet into my spreadsheets using live balances.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How Many Bitcoins do you own? on: June 28, 2011, 01:14:31 AM
I have a couple of coins: some from mining, some donations for services, a bit more from luck at the poker tables, oh and dividends from SIN.
I love telling my deeply Christian family that I receive the dividends of SIN.
19  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: GLBSE's latest updates (an early Christmas present for non-techies) on: June 27, 2011, 09:47:26 PM
Amy chance that we can buy/sell fractional amounts of shares?

This would be an opportunity for a mutual fund on the glbse. Call it something like MF, with a subasset for each currently trading stock, e.g. MF.UBX and MF.SIN, and issue shares at, say .000001 btc. Then you can buy shares of the asset you are splitting and divide the dividends among the fund shares.

Did that make sense?
You've spotted my cunning plan.... shhhhh!  Wink

Just wanted to make sure Nefario wasn't going to sweep the rug out under the idea by bringing in fractional share trading.
20  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: GLBSE's latest updates (an early Christmas present for non-techies) on: June 27, 2011, 01:56:33 PM
eturnerx fractional shares are not sold fractional on purpose on stock exchanges.
Actually no - it dates back to the issuance to stock certificates. However I have different reasons for asking Nefario.
