Just tried this miner for the first time after done years and about 5 hours after it was running, I got a warning from Windows security regarding a Win32/Detplock threat.

It surely can't be just me?

Hello.

After installing Nvidia drivers 456.38, I can't get more than 9.86 MH/s on my 1080ti which was doing a nice 40~50 MH/s, depending on the OC.
I'm on the latest 5.0.3 version on Windows and I've tried to set custom intensity in unlike case that this would affect something.

Hmm... I had 25 posts but I guess a thread I had posted in has been deleted since I don't have a "your post has been deleted" message.
Thanks for paying me for the week regardless of that!

I did the post I was owing you and I'll keep my signature up for a day or two, then I'll remove it because I'm leaving the campaign.
I have too limited of a time and I find myself in rush to post low-quality content just to reach the 25 posts/week. I initially joined this campaign because it had an elastic requirement for posts, from 10 minimum up to 25 maximum.
But since the owners decided to raise the minimum requirement, I can no longer comply.

Thank you for choosing me and for running this campaign fair! I also thank the owners for financially supporting this campaign.

Until next time,
Riv.

I'm sorry but I wouldn't expect much of a bullrun after an Ethereum update.
Unfortunately the price is dictated by a few people, which I'm sure most have not realized since they cling into the "decentralization" dream, and the price will only spike when those few people have thrown every random guy who bought the top out of the market.

Ripple Co-founder Chris Larsen responds to scathing report

https://eng.ambcrypto.com/ripple-co-founder-chris-larsen-responds-to-scathing-report/

LMAO. The words of Ryan Selkis "In other words, for all that centralization, corporate treasury shenanigans, and silver-tongued bullshit, you’re still getting a network that is pound for pound “shadier” than bitcoin, despite what Ripple execs might have regulators believe."

He does admit Bitcoin is shady though. This is the link to the scathing report. https://messari.io/article/ripple-s-tax-shelter-xrp-schemes

I have stopped wasting my time by reading analysts' opinions a long time now.
Some of them are good at one financial asset but clueless on others, yet they comment on what they do not know.
Some others are just getting paid to say bullshit.

I only read the facts these days and draw my own conclusions.

Looking forward to it!

Back in 2011 20% of the Bitcoin was minted. the price was between 1$ and 10$.... guess what....

I like such comparison with Bitcoin and 2010 yy and so on  Grin They are funny ) But the problem is tha now is not a 2011 and we have thousands different coins

And BEAM is not Bitcoin... Bitcoin had the support of a few rich people because it was something revolutionary and it captivated people... now the space is too saturated.

When is the hardfork planned? I think it would be a good time before BTC hardfork. As we could see ETH and alts grow if they would have made this in few month before BTC hardfork and than will be BTC growing...  Huh
7 December 2019.
You can read this: https://blog.ethereum.org/2019/11/20/ethereum-istanbul-upgrade-announcement/
or this: https://cointelegraph.com/news/istanbul-to-berlin-ethereum-milestones-on-the-road-to-serenity



So does this mean that on December 7th Ethereum is going to move to POS? May be this big dump before upcoming huge pump after hardfork   Huh
Hope to see good altseson again  Roll Eyes
No, this HF has nothing to do with the POS. There is no certain date for ETH 2.0, just rumors that it will start in Jan 2020. It is not clear whether a full POS will be introduced, or mixed POS/POW at first for better security. Full POS may happen still in Q1 2020 if there are no bugs.

An update of this huge caliber should be announced more than 2 months earlier, so I'm sure it won't happen on January... it's too soon and there's no official announcement.

Now that I think about it, I've been hearing about Ethereum's POS for about 2 years now!

Assassin's Creed Dev Becomes Producer for EOS-Based Gaming Startup

Ubisoft, the game development giant behind the videogame Assassin’s Creed, partnered with EOS-based game distribution platform Ultra.


https://cointelegraph.com/news/assassins-creed-dev-becomes-block-producer-for-eos-based-gaming-startup

Well, all they'll be doing for now is confirm blocks.

As the Ubisoft's representative said,
"During this first trial period of collaboration, we hope to help them in bringing it to a larger scale and experiment with the possibilities this opens up for the industry"

The part "first trial period of collaboration" leaves open a possible continuation of this collaboration, but so far it's nothing more than an experiment from Ubisoft which shows a little of acknowledgement toward EOS.

I've stayed awake many times in the past for video-games related purposes... I bet I would stay awake if there were free money being distributed, yep!

~~~
If you want to maintain privacy, cryptocurrency is the right choice.
Crypto is anonymous, allowing users to maintain their privacy as gamblers. The use of cryptocurrency as a currency that can be used to bet will not make gamblers think about prices. But IMO, they only think about how to collect as much cryptocurrency as possible through betting.

Or people use to think it's anonymous, but as soon as you try to exchange with fiat, you hit the KYC wall... then all your historic transactions are revealed.
Unless ofcourse you never exchange for fiat... that might be a viable option in the future if more stores start accepting BTC.

I can hardly understand what the OP is saying... but I guess that's one of the reasons the signature payments have gone down... every sort of people, those who know how to communicate in English and those who don't, all join campaigns and spam nonsense; it's that easy after all!

Looks interesting, but personally I won't bother with an unfinished game.
Let them finish it, see how people like it and then I might get involved.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: What is your favorite project these days? on: November 21, 2019, 07:09:01 PM
Lately I've got tired of Bitcoin itself, people seem to love scummy exchanges and support their BTC unloading through Tether and non-physical futures shorting... So until people learn what's good for them and realize Bitcoin has become more centrilized than fist these days, I'm staying away from BTC.... sorry! Undecided

The other projects I like are ARK because they're progressing fast and create an actual product, ETH because it has an actual usage with gamers preferring this platform, and lastly XRP because it's as good as BTC for me but without the manipulation from Chinese whales and futures shorting.

Lets hope they get out of paper to print more money , soon

But even if they run out of paper to print fiat, they'll still br issuing Tether... because they'll never run out of air! Lips sealed

I just love the enthusiasm of the XRP army. I don't hold any XRP but I will trade it when the time comes. I strongly believe that Ripple will be one of the leading altcoins with the most volume in the coming of the altcoin season.

That's an interesting perspective, you believe it'll have a leading position but you want to wait for a better time to trade it?!
Don't you think it's close to a bottom, if it has not already hit bottom? Do you have a specific price in mind or are you judging if the time to buy is right or not based on every day data?

Ripple will bottom out when Bitcoin stops teasing traders with dumping every significant price advances. All depends on BTC. When the first true sign of a trend reversal which is increased volume and resistance-breaking rallies, I will start buying XRP.

So when BTC starts doing higher highs and lower lows, when altcoins will be probably still lagging, that's when you see an opportunity. Because of how this stupid market works, I'll agree with you! That's how things are most likely to unravel.
However I don't believe this is how things should have been. People who have grown tired of futures manipulation in BTC should go to the second best thing which is XRP until we brake out of some people's control. I believe there's enough real value to support BTC XRP and ETH, but right now the real value is being overshadowed by short trades which are supported by air.

@laimasas Do you really expect anyone from the official team to suggest you to use a VPN in order to bypass the limitation they've put themselves? x)
I don't think VPN alone would help you since Crex24 requires a KYC as far as I can remember. Your best chance is to contact their support... you can load up their site and open a ticket without VPN I hope?

So he "researched" and found a limitation of MW known since 2016. That's $60 well wasted.

While Grin transaction outputs are fully obscured, it's still possible to trace which inputs links to which outputs at least until some age. But it's unclear at this point what information could be derived from this.

Regarding the "...at least until some age" part,
I don't understand what the age of the blockchain has to do with this, probably because I didn't understand the exact method of this "attack" (I don't like to call it attack though since it's not damaging the integrity of the blockchain nor steals anyone's funds).

If I would make a guess, is it because the more people use GRIN and the more transactions are being broadcast, it becomes less possible to trace an individual transaction?
