Not confident in this one, not investing (nor promoting) in this.

Thanks for sharing.  We were all wondering what you were going to do.
Thanks for the laugh, CryptoHypno  Cheesy
There are a surprising amount of new accounts bad-mouthing this project, it doesn't ring true to me.

I joined the mailing list; the pre-alpha demo looks interesting, looking forward to a live demo and updates!

I got a TP-Link UH720 and Raspberry PI 3 (Raspian) and ran 4 Moonlander 2 on them. They run at standard core voltage @ 796 MHZ so about 4,5 MH per Moonlander. The power consumption for the hole setup is 50 watts.
That's a nice hub neochi, I like your setup. Can you share a pic the rig in action? How was setting up the RPi with the MLD2s?

So I can remove d=128 due to litecoin pool, and I can turn the wheel also if the usb stick is attached?
Yes you can remove the d=128, but I wouldn't attempt to change the voltage with the stick plugged in!

Binance has made a lot of good decisions over the last year, I think this is another; I trust they'll manage their growth well.

You're not wrong, doge shouldnt be a bad long hold. Idk how liquid it is though.

Memes can be powerful.
I had 100k DOGE in a wallet on an old drive that I forgout about and gave to my brother, who wiped it clean back in 2014. I learned an important lesson about shitcoin holding from that!
edit: in case you're wondering I tried to recover it but it's long gone  Tongue

Hey mnightwaffle, check out this ICO: Digitex

What Is The Digitex Futures Exchange
Digitex is a commission-free futures exchange where traders can buy and sell futures contracts on the price of BTC/USD, ETH/USD and LTC/USD with zero transaction fees on any trades. Zero trading fees combined with high leverage and an intuitive one click ladder trading interface allow traders to pursue high volume, ultra short term trading strategies without getting killed by commissions. With its own native currency, called the DGTX token, the exchange covers costs by creating and selling a small number of new DGTX tokens each year instead of charging transaction fees.
They also have a great bounty program, with 1000 DGTX per e-mail referrer and 30% ETH of whatever they purchase during the pre-sale. Looks like a solid team with a good, functional product. Here's my referral link if you decide to check it out:

8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Why did XRB mooned? on: January 06, 2018, 03:21:20 AM
Actually it was added to big exchanges. More people knew about this project. Raiblocks was in the shadow for long period of time and looked very undervalued.


I actually have thought the same thing, why XRB price is mooning. Now if my memory serves me right, XRB was recently added to two major exchanges - RightBTC and KuCoin. Apart from the two, it also won the Binance voting competition and will soon be listed on their exchange.

So taking these into consideration, probably these are some of the reasons that trigger the sudden upsurge in its price.

This seems the most likely explanation, especially being added to Binance - just look to the price of BNB to see the effect it has.
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: How to get more profit? on: January 05, 2018, 11:50:58 PM
greed is a bad trait. so, my advise - devide your bank into several parts - 40-50% always keep in BTC (in case the altcoins go down you can buy them very cheap, if you have free BTC), 25 % - altcoins from top 10, they are stable and grow up slowly with every year ( look at coinsmarketcup) and other part - in new coins (tokens), some of these coins are undervalued and soon they are able to fly up ( Ada, Verge made this as example). I hold 5-10% in Ethereum, but it is optional.  Dont forget to fix the profit.
I like your percentage split, jinnyjinny. What do you mean by "Don't forget to fix the profit"?
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Recommend me a cheap USB Miner on: January 05, 2018, 08:16:31 PM
Just a suggestion and feel free to ignore but a good way to experiment is to pick up an old dual core machine like a lenovo think centre, or similar, and use a single NVIDIA 1050 or 1060.  It'll let you do most things.. it takes about a week / two to reach the payout required for more pools but it's a cheap way to get a tiny rig going and the 1050 / 1060 shouldn't require any additional power depending on the second hand machine you get.  You could go AMD as well but I'm not sure how much power the low end AMD cards draw.

I started this way and got a $20 machine from my local newspaper and a  new 1060 on sale from Ebay.. I later sold that original machine for $50 ($30 profit) when I upgraded and built more.
I was thinking of doing something like this earlier, Plant Power - and then I read your post and it summed up my thoughts perfectly. There must be dozens of threads on building cheap rigs, I should dig around some more...

Thanks for all your comments, everyone who has contributed on here. I am becoming more and more hyped about mining every day,
just interested in the tech, though, as I doubt that it will be profitable even the long run cause of the high electricity costs.
I think you and I are in a similar place, crypto-words. Ultimately I think I'll want to have a small rig or two, maybe a MLD2 USB hub & a GPU miner -- because I enjoy the tech, I like mining, and if I'm able to mine an altcoin in the early days whose project I back fully I'd get a lot of satisfaction out of it.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: TROOOOOOOON!!!! on: January 05, 2018, 08:08:34 PM
Few news and i think its cleaver advertisement from the CEO Justin

- They partnered with Uplive which has Gifto which is created based on tron
- They partnered with Obike
- They partnered with game.com to create a game like Cryptokitties which i think is destined to fail
- Then the big one there is a new partnership which people are persuming to be with Alibaba

We will find out tomorrow

More than all Justin has been portayed as the poster boy of crypto which is the major hype. I have been seeing his twitter followers raise like anything in the past month

All ends up as clever marketing supported by a solid team.
Nice summary, AravinthP - this makes the most sense to me.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Tokens (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][ICO] Digitex - Commission-free cryptocurrency futures exchange on: January 05, 2018, 07:54:42 PM
But there ain't shit for free - new token issuance comes at a cost of a small inflation rate on the value of DGTX tokens which is borne collectively by all DGTX token owners. For example, if we need to create 50 million new DGTX tokens in a year to cover costs, this is a 5% increase in the DGTX supply of one billion DGTX tokens which will theoretically cause a 5% drop in the value of DGTX.

However, this small inflation rate of a few percent is what pays for a highly liquid futures exchange with no trading costs whatsoever. Such an exchange will attract thousands of traders who must own DGTX tokens to participate, and this demand for tokens will create a DGTX price rise far greater than the 5% that it cost to create that demand.

DGTX token owners will vote through a system of Decentralized Governance by Blockchain to determine how many new DGTX tokens must be created each year to cover costs. This way, it is the DGTX token owners themselves who are determining the inflation rate they are happy with in order to fund the exchange which provides the utility and demand for the DGTX token.
This is a great concept for a futures exchange with a solid team. I signed up for the mailing list and I'll be watching this thread; here's my referral link if anyone is curious and wants to help me earn DGTX via their bounty program  Cool

LTC on litecoinpool.org, one worker, total hashrate ca 53Mh/s. This gives about 0.0072LTC/day or 1.8USD or a 13mo ROI assuming that the profitability stays constant and ignoring the costs of the hub and other peripherals as well as shipment and duties I had to pay. In practice I have hedged my "investment" with LTC/BTC because otherwise there will never be a return.

You've done the math, lennyNO! Smart thinking, hedging LTC/BTC.

I have a 19port 40A Eyeboot hub, because that was the only thing I could get my hands on at the time. Expensive as it is, it wasn't the best buy, mostly because I cannot run all 11 full blast, I think it is the powersupply that is halting. If I run all at 900Mhz and say each draws 15W, it is a total current of 33A. That doesn't seem to fly, and MLDs start to drop out. But 4x900Mhz+7x832Mhz works just ok, and that's fine too. I don't have wattmeter to check how much I am actually consuming.

In my mind there must be a great market for low-cost (diy?) tailor-made MLD2 USB hubs, with the right spacing between USB sockets so all can be used, and with serious power!
I was wondering if such a hub existed but it wouldn't make much sense unless explicitly designed for MLD2s.
Which is a better solution: a USB hub with a custom external fan setup, or a custom-spaced USB hub?

FOMO and FUD are real.
However it's not an understatement to say that cryptocurrency is one of the most interesting things happening in the world right now -- there's so much possibility, potential, and risk involved it's easy to get really into it. I know I am.
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Tokens (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN] POLYMATH: The Securities Token Platform on: January 05, 2018, 03:25:52 AM
Interesting project; I'll be watching this thread for updates!
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Recommend me a cheap USB Miner on: January 05, 2018, 12:55:01 AM
I will buy the moonlander 2 from you

my fan died and I did this

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-4QqZKMKWA


so I want  to get a total of 6 more sticks .
Actually you posted that yt video solution in response to my dead fan in the Moonlander 2 Support thread, philipma1957  Cool
I'm going to do what you did, so I'll be keeping this one and hopefully acquiring more soon.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Official FutureBit Moonlander 2 Driver and Support Thread on: January 05, 2018, 12:17:53 AM
I have 11MLDs, some running at 832Mhz, some at 900Mhz, all on 1 hub
What are you mining with that rig, lennyNO?
18  Economy / Economics / Re: Obvious insider trading by Intel CEO on: January 04, 2018, 10:46:48 PM
I think the case is that we've known this was happening for decades but had no definitive, solid proof of the conspiracy. Now we do, so everyone is waiting for the shoe to drop -- how will this be addressed by the tech industry, the alphabet soup, the gov, et al.
How do you react when this kind of flaw is made public?

....

There won't be a reaction. No one will discuss this or do legitimate fact checking on it. I doubt anyone cares. If you look at all of the journalists and independent media people one might expect to jump on this story, none will cover it. Everyone is selling out and it might be game over as far as legitimate & informative media goes. To be honest, I'm selling out too and will be cutting down on the amount of legit content aimed at benefiting public interest which I normally made in the past.
We are becoming more balkanized in our day-to-day lives; the media who "one might expect to jump on this story" won't, like you say -- because they don't have to, because most people are so wrapped up in the tunnel vision of their media hole to care.

The overwhelming amount of utter silence pervading real and pressing issues we face today. That's all people need to know as far as topics like this go.
Sad but true.

Also there could be an overwhelming amount of evidence to support said conspiracy theory. I did some quick searching via google and it looks like search results have been scrubbed to strip out relevent data. So, that's where we are right now in 2018. Maybe things will get better, then again maybe not.
I trust they will get better, Hydrogen  Cool

Obviously, the concept of loan repayment guarantees should change.
The base account of a person in the crypt world is the sum of various assets in the form of tokens. Monetization of human behavior in society, the creation of ranks of trust, algorithms to support a positive balance of consumption, monitoring the level of coexistence in society.
In China, such a model of constructing addictions is already being implemented in society. .

I hadn't considered viewing China from this perspective: using algorithms, tokenization, and monetization to control the ebb and flow of society. Interesting!

Now this is an interesting list. Looks well thought out, Im actually counting on BAT going up substantially but time to dmor on the ICO's mentioned.
Smiley

There are so many bad ICOs to wade through...  Cheesy
Wading through shitty ICOs is how I spend half my time here, mnightwaffle   Grin
Great list, I think you covered most coins I know, and of the ones I'm familiar with I agree with your rankings.
I'll edit this comment with ones I have to add as I come across them.
