1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: How to I make cryptocoin? on: July 29, 2013, 08:11:07 PM
Hi, I want to create new cryptocoin unit. But I don't know this. Please help me or refer a article.


Unless you are really quite skilled, you are better off paying a skilled member to program one for you and just give them ideas. Please do not make another shitcoin, there are already way too many of those.

I'm trying to get some bitcoins really quick today. It seems like all the instant CC sites are either taken down or under maintenance. Leaving me with slower options like waiting to mail in a money order.

Anybody know of a way I can get some really quick bitcoins with CC?

Make a trade with a trusted forum member using escrow and it should not take too long.

$500 Amazon Gift Card.
I am offering 5% discount on the card.

Do you accept altcoins as payment or only BTC? If so, which alt coins?

So I'm trying to figure out which exchanges I should join. I've been looking at the exchange list on the wiki and there's so many to choose from.

Does your country of residence make a difference for what exchange you use? Which exchanges do you all use? Anybody have any good horror stories, or any other stories of great customer service or something?

Do most people just use one exchange or a few?

Are you referring to bitcoin or altcoin exchanges? Altcoin = cryptsy, bit coin Also, you can also trade with forum members with escrow.

Would not reccommend these kinds of websites. Its clearly seeable that you could just run off with the BTC on that website. Even the website seems sh*t. No effort put in it, whatsoeva.

Seems true, I would stay far away from this site. They should put some more effort into their website and design and maybe they would get more takers.

So there seems to be a lot of discussion about exactly how many GPUs you can fit into one motherboard.  One of the posters on this thread got 8 with win 7 64 bit, MSI77A-G45. a noob, I note there are only 7 actual slots.  Even with risers how do you get 8 GPUs to fit in 7 slots?  Do you have to use at least 1 double GPU unit (e.g. 5970, 6990).

I think that is correct but I am not 100% certain. I just put one GPU per slot when I build my rigs.
9  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Using Bitcoins and Amazon. on: July 29, 2013, 07:57:25 PM
Or you can pay forum members in BTC to buy the amazon item and have them ship it to your use and be sure to use escrow

  Coins sent avg. per hour (last 24h)

Please let me know if you find errors or have any comments / suggestions.

Just checked it out, can;t seem to find any errors and it looks pretty awesome. Nice job and will def. use in the future Smiley

Because bitcoins are based on random speculation so they will increase and decrease as their perceived value increases and decreases.
12  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Primecoin chainspermin, p/sec, sievesize on: July 29, 2013, 07:54:01 PM
I would also love to know the answer to this question. Been mining ever since they came out and never understood what sievesize meant or what the best one is.
13  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Ahh Finally found where I could post. on: July 29, 2013, 07:52:08 PM
It would be nice to inform us via email that us "newbies" should goto the newbies forum to be able to start posting.  I have been trying for days to figure this one out.

Had to get into a Chatbox on Cryptsy to get the info.

Anyone else want an email to inform them to start posting in newbies?

You should have read the newbie readme. Email notifications are completely pointless because it should be obvious.
14  Economy / Games and rounds / Re: Race your coins and win up to 78% on: July 29, 2013, 07:50:46 PM
Is it possible to lose some BTC on this site?

It is gambling, the goal of the site is to extract the maximum amount of BTC from you. Never gamble more than you can afford to loose and remember that the house (site) always wins in the end.
15  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: MTGOX ACCOUNT FOR SALE on: July 29, 2013, 07:49:14 PM
Yes, this is my first post, and this 'looks legit'. I'm hiding my real identity because its probably against GOX TOS to sell accounts.

But they screwed me over so here I am. Price is 15% off, contains less than $1500 USD. I won't say the exact amount publicly. The account has extra security enabled - you can know its not compromised. We have to do escrow otherwise this can't work. Naturally we'll have to agree on an escrow agent.

I would recommend JohnK whenever do you decide upon an escrow agent. However, since you are new, I would probably wait a little while before you try to sell something like that because it looks kinda scammy (no offense)
16  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Mining help on: July 29, 2013, 07:46:39 PM
Hello all. I'm a complete newbie to mining, so I came here to ask if long "droughts" of no shares are something that is commonplace with BTC mining. I'm set up on BTCGuild using GUIMiner. (I have a Windows 8 touchscreen laptop with an Intel graphics card, not an ideal set up I know.) For all of last week, everything was humming along fine and then over the weekend I had to restart my computer etc. Since then, GUIMiner shows me to be mining, but that's about it. Haven't received an accepted share in almost two days.

So again, as a newbie, I was just wondering if these long periods of time without any noticeable progress being made is commonplace, or if there's something goofy on my end.


I would never mine BTC with a laptop. You should instead mine altcoins or something else with a lower difficulty where it may still be possible. Also, you could CPU mine stuff like XPM and quarkcoins.
17  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Pricing Multi-GPU Rig for sCrypt hashing on: July 29, 2013, 07:44:59 PM
I'm trying to price out a multi-GPU rig for hashing sCrypt. I'm a comp-sci major and I'm A+ certified for hardware, but this is some stuff I haven't really done before (that's why I'm in the newbie forum).

I've been running the numbers, but I'm having trouble figuring out exactly what I need to buy.

My current shopping list is:

Motherboard with 4-8 PCIE slots
3-8 GPUs based on whatever I can find cheapest on this chart I made (
Powered PCIE risers

I already have a stack of RAM and several cases (including a large server case), at least 1 spare HDD, and 2 PSUs sitting around.
So, what remains is trying to find an appropriate mobo, and figuring out the total Wattage of the system.

Also, I need to figure out which cards/boards/etc are voltage unlocked....


I'm finding it very difficult to find resources on searching/sorting mobos based on #PCIE slots, and not finding tons of info on what components are voltage unlocked and how that will/could affect the total wattage of the system.

Also, I saw several references to running multi PSU-single-mobo systems - how do you even do that?

Does anyone have a simple guide on who to configure a DIY system like this?

Check out I built my rig based off their instructions and their parts and it works pretty well.  Also, check out the mining section for more info on rig building in general.
18  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Do you feel cheated by BFL? on: July 29, 2013, 07:43:27 PM
I don't feel scammed only because I bought my 30 GH/s miner on march or so and then sold it on ebay for a quick 3.5k profit a couple of months later. If I was forced to keep it and wait then yeah, I would feel scammed.

BTC is poised to pave the road but we should just hope that entities such as the US gov don't intervene and drive it underground Sad
