Hey all. I would like to see the source code for diablominer updated to handle stratum mining. I am working on a research project and this would greatly help me considering I only know java. Otherwise I would use cgminer.

Learn C. This would be invaluable for you.

Can someone tell me why friedcat is no longer processing AM transfers?

I got last wednesday and the wednesday before mails form friedcat claiming he moved shares. Always before the divs. Maybe try a different email because you might be in a spamfolder?

I don't do it through email, I do it through forum PM. The forum doesn't have spam filtering. Has he announced hes no longer checking forum PMs?

I would like to know as well.

Where did you get this idea? He processed a lot of AM transfers last week... and he usually does it once a week...

He has not responded to me in PM, I have several transfers that have not gone through for several weeks now. I don't know whats going on.

DiabloMiner has been discontinued, please use cgminer instead
noo say it isn't so.
Thank you for the time and effort you put into your software, it was the first miner software I used and it was simple.
I will look into cgminer,  thanks again.

FGPA/ASIC support is just too difficult to manage in a cross platform way in Java.

cgminer was written by a good friend of mine who I introduced to Bitcoin, and I myself have switched over to cgminer. The DM kernel is available through cgminer as well, so its not a hard choice if you're still GPU mining.

Is friedcat no longer responding to PMs?

Over the past month I've sent him requests to send direct shares to other people (part of the DMC shutdown), and 2 people havent gotten there shares and he hasnt responded to 2 requests for confirmation of what shares DMC still has and if those shares indeed have been sent.
9  Economy / Securities / Re: Diablo Mining Company Aftermath on: November 19, 2013, 03:10:40 PM
Well, actually I still haven't received any dividends on the AM shares that I got for my trade-in - maybe you could check if you received them instead and send them to me? Also it would be nice to poke friedcat again, maybe he forgot about the transfer?

I've PM'ed him to request verification of how many shares I have. It should match the number I have.
10  Economy / Securities / Re: Diablo Mining Company Aftermath on: November 18, 2013, 10:19:24 PM
I was not aware this thread existed.

As I have said in the DMC thread, Yochdog did not pay out any BTC for BTCMC and I do not believe he ever intends to. I sent a request to him to pay out in time for the DMC closure, he did not. No one ever offered to buy the shares for a significant fraction of the debt. You can claim I'm stealing them, but I do not expect to ever see Yochdog pay out on this.

I made an exception for AM redeeming for pascal257 as he missed the announcement and had a small number of DMC shares. He received his shares on Nov 6th, or several days before he started this thread. He talked to me on IRC and didn't realize that he received the shares as friedcat does not verify transfers.

As for the final 2,789 shares, 2,324 of them are owned by two people who have not responded to the final notice.
11  Economy / Securities / Re: Diablo Mining Company on: November 06, 2013, 09:54:12 AM
I wish mods would quit unlocking this thread. I've reported EskimoBob and iCEBREAKER for trolling.

DMC is closed, do not unlock this thread.
12  Economy / Securities / Re: Diablo Mining Company on: November 03, 2013, 02:44:58 PM
Diablo Mining Company is now closed. Any shares not redeemed before November 1st are now void.

Hello, im very sorry to ask this, what i guess is very basic, but i searched, on this forum, specifically on this post too... trying to look any similar problems, and i didnt found anything, im pretty sure im not doing it completly right, but i spent some hours and im starting to fell frustrated.
So here is the problem i have:

Code:
[09/10/13 12:44:38] Started

[09/10/13 12:44:38] Connecting to: http://pit.deepbit.net:8332/

[09/10/13 12:44:38] ERROR: No OpenCL platforms found
DiabloMiner: An error occurred while starting the application.

So with my basic knowledge i think is all about the drivers on my GPU,

I installed the newest drivers for my GeForce 6150SE nForce 430. Is this board compatible with openCL?
I should configure any settings? use other command on the command lines?
or should I forget about GPU minning with this board and directly try CPU minning?


Your GPU is too old to support OpenCL.


so... i should give up on gpu mining, at least on the PCs with that GPU, thanks

Do to how high difficulty is now, no GPU is profitable anymore.

BitFunder has announced the following:

Quote
Important Notice (October 8th, 2013):

Please be advised that BitFunder is implementing the following rules and procedures:

    As of October 8th, 2013, BitFunder will not accept new registrations from any United States persons or entities. All new registrants must supply the information required to obtain "Verified" status on their linked WeExchange account. BitFunder may, in its sole direction, decline to accept any new registrations.

    As of October 8th, 2013, all current BitFunder users who are located in the United States or are determined to be United States persons or entities will not be able to enter into any new positions on the Bitfunder website, and, as of November 1, 2013, such users will also not be allowed to sell positions on the BitFunder website.

    All current BitFunder users who are not United States persons or entities must supply the information required to obtain "Verified" status on their linked WeExchange account before November 1, 2013. Any such users who fail to provide the necessary information will not be able to enter into or sell positions on the BitFunder website as of November 1, 2013.

    Users will be able to withdraw holdings and Bitcoins from their BitFunder accounts before and after November 1, 2013.

    All assets and issuers must demonstrate that they meet BitFunder's requirements for the listing of assets, or the assets and issuers will, at BitFunder's sole discretion, be denied access to, or removed from, the site. Issuers will be notified of any additional information needed to demonstrate compliance with BitFunder's requirements.

    BitFunder appreciates your understanding in these matters as we move forward.

    Sincerely,
    BitFunder

What this means for Diablo Mining Company:

The SEC has gone after BitFunder (ab)using the legal process.

The SEC will go after all domestic and foreign Bitcoin stock markets that do business with Americans or American companies.

DMC is from America.

The majority of DMC shareholders are from America.

SEC rules generally prohibit foreign investors unless you jump through hoops.

DMC will no longer be allowed to trade on BitFunder.

DMC will no longer be able to pay dividends or participate in any form of share buyback.

Due to the fact that the SEC is trying to obliterate any Bitcoin startups by whatever means necessary, and that DMC has far exceeded its goal to payback investors, this marks the end of share buyback.

It is unlikely that Yochdog or Namworld will pay anything they owe to DMC. If anyone wants to buy their debt from me, they are welcome make an offer on a significant fraction of what is owed, however I believe it is unlikely anyone will. If this offer is completed before November 1st, and BitFunder hasn't shut down and hasn't delisted DMC, it will be paid out to the remaining shareholders.

As per the shareholder contract, DMC is now closing and liquidating.

The last 3,947 shares can still be traded 11:1 for ASICMINER shares until BitFunder shuts down or delists DMC or before November 1st. Anything remaining will be used to resolve DMC's debt.

Between 158% and 183% of the original investment has been repaid.

Although DMC has failed at its original goals, I wish everyone else luck.

I've been thinking about the discussion that was going on here yesterday. Essentially there was a consensus that probably FC will only sell hardware, not adding anything to the ~60TH/s (in house or with franchisee) mining, until Gen2 (~December). The assumption was that we make more money that way. Now I think we were wrong to assume nothing will be added to the mining farm, and here is why.

FC released the public plan for the near future rather recently. I'm speaking about the statement where he mentioned 200TH/s to be deployed in September/October, and 1PH/s for the end of the year. I am too lazy to search for it, but it was less than a month ago.
There is no way, absolutely no way, that FC had such a plan less than a month ago, and then just changed his mind "oh, wait, after all, no! Forget 200TH, forget 1PH, let's completely change the plan and just sell for several months, leaving our hashrate droping close to zero". No way, they must have many projections of the near-term future, in terms of competition, difficulty rise, mining market, etc. Nothing unforseen has happened over this time period that would explain such a plan change. Especially for things that FC made public; not exactly something he does lightly.

Now I'm sure that we will get our 200TH/s soon (actually I came to write this and then discover it looks better than yesterday! yeah!).
That will be above 10% of the hash rate again.
And there will be hardware sells on top of that, because there is no reason to stop them.  Cool



It is pointless to pile up hardware, that can not earn profit. If the cost of chips+all the expenses can not return profit, % from total network is irrelevant.
Question is, can AM rigs, built at close to "cost", still earn more than it wastes on energy and other expenses like keeping it running etc.
If answer is No, then sell what you have at any price you can get and move on.


The cost to build and run them (maintenance/electricity) is still ridiculously low compare to earning.

How do you know that? Have you seen any numbers (statements) form AM to back that up? Can you please give me a link?

It would be a mistake to believe thath because 55nm are out there and soon 28nm, our gen1 is obsolete in terms of just being profitable. The only reason to sell is because you earn even more, not because you're doomed to never break even.

Belief has nothing to do with it. Just simple math. Why waste time mining with this stuff if you can earn more by selling it and concentrating on developing the next gen chip? And if you add mining risks to this equation... huh. Let someone else have them and take the coin available now from sale.

You'll see that from how low the price of the blades will be in the next few months.

Exactly, because they become less and less profitable (to mine or to sell)

I have to agree here.

130nm (110nm)
90nm (80nm)
65nm (55nm)
45nm (40nm)
32nm (28nm)
22nm (20nm) *

* Nobody is making processors @ 22nm except Intel (not even AMD or NVidia).  A couple of memory companies are using 22nm but memory is magnitudes simpler than a microprocessor.  TSMC will begin early (i.e. insanely out the butt expensive) production of 20nm in Feb 2014.

Generally it takes around 3 years before a new process node becomes cheaper than the prior node.  That would put 22nm/20nm at cost parity compared 28nm not occuring until ~2017.



IBM is actually producing 22nm on their process for the next POWER series which available for order next year. TSMC and GloFo won't have 22nm until 2015 or 2016.
