21  Bitcoin / Mining / How to know if you are a Mining addict..Well..when you fry your service entrance on: September 03, 2018, 05:37:20 AM
Just one of the risks of sucking lots of juice...

Was quite the fireworks show...plenty of sparks and pops and a cute little fire on the roof of the porch
Hats off to Hydro Quebec...back up mining in under 3 hours.

Mind you, if they would have given me the damn upgrade which I've been waiting for for 4 months, this would not have happened.
or so I like to tell myself.

Who is Linus Torvalds

How would anyone feel about a multibillion dollar company that uses your free software as the cornerstone of their business and have never engaged you on any level?

Sorry I thought that was a Jeopordy Question

He was describing ....ENGLAND AS IT WAS IN 1948 and to a greater extent Europe/USA
He was a senior PROPAGANDIST for the BBC

If the masses of people were anywhere near close to being sane...

There would be NO coins...NO COINS would be needed...MONEY would NOT exist.

(Save as objects of ARTISTRY decoration etc..)

What most people don't realize is that Eric Arthur Blair (Orwell's REAL NAME)
Juxtaposed the numbers 1948 to be 1984
HE WAS AN EXPERT in PROPAGANDA, WORKING FOR THE BBC and was obviously repulsed and horrified to the extent he felt morally obligated to write about it. He gave many interviews before his death in which he plainly stated this.

Why does no one talk about the rate of in the actual USE OF BTC as a currency...
Well because it is a failure.
The rate of adoption is pathetic BECAUSE no one will buy or use it while it is so vulnerable to exchange speculators and MEGA FARMS who enjoy the cheap production and monopoly over it.
mega farms of cheap electricity have indeed KILLED BTC mining....and destroyed any chance of wide spread adoption.
Equally guilty are the parasitic exchanges and whale speculators.

I will NEVER pay for BTC or use it or accept it.
I'll mine the shit out of my tiny farm and sell most IMMEDIATELY and never upgrade or reinvest in gear again.

BTC died LONG AGO...People just don't understand that they are just profiting off it's funeral.
It NEVER had a chance...the rich banking power elite was NEVER going to tolerate loosing it's grasp on the power to CREATE MONEY.
They got caught napping but greed ensured BTC would be delivered right into their arms. And here we are.
Bitcoin core is OWNED by AXA insurance of Zurich...the chairman is a Bilderberg
27  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: Cheap electricity available, need advice on: August 27, 2018, 02:26:54 AM
I'm sorry but you live in a very unstable political area....that probably ends with....STAN
Nobody is going to invest or trust in such an area.
Let me qualify that...nobody except those that have enough money and power to ensure the safe and long term successful exploitation of that cheap electricity....Bitmain is not even close to being that kind of big and powerful. Only BANKS and GIANT TRANSNATIONAL corporations are.
Cheap electricity is of course critical but ....connectivity is also.
Physical security and support infrastructure are also vital.

The cheap electricity you enjoy is temporary and totally at the whim and discretion of GIANT TRANS-NATIONAL corporations who hold enormous political power.
The leadership of your country are slaves to them. As are ours.

Should you attempt to build a large facility you would only attract the attention of the most undesirable and unscrupulous.

Do you really think the large farms did not already consider you area?
There is NO PLACE ON THIS EARTH that they have not already exploited, except those that are too risky to ensure success.

You would be far better off to stay SMALL and quiet. and private..under the radar and serve/help only yourself.
The cheap electricity is only blood in the water that attracts big bad hungry remorseless sharks

HyperSCAM COIN....
Hyper pump and dump
Hyper theft of your Sia coins when you try to collect the Airdrop

900PH on a coin with ZERO VALUE

No serious investor would come close to buying this trap

There are easy well know solutions to keeping water effectively biologically inactive.
Using distilled de-mineralized water would be a must... and UV is very effective at keeping it biologically inert.
But since water is rather resistant to heat absorption..Glycol AKA "Rad fluid" would become the standard substitute pretty quick I imagine.
Though there are also some more exotic more effective liquids.
But then you are dealing with a closed system that must have fans and airflow and ventilation all over again. Bye bye to your electricity "Savings"

You are correct in noticing the electrical efficiency will be minuscule.
Reliability and service life should increase dramatically...but will probably not offset the huge increase in maintenance costs.
Pumping high volumes of air is always going to be much cheaper than pumping water
And there will never be a better solution to heat dissipation than using mother natures free cold from extreme Northern/Southern latitudes and simple convection.

Further I would speculate the actual added volume/space requirements would be another huge cost for large farms to replace and modify the set-up density.

Bottom line is this a short sighted gimmick. It only give the illusion of increased efficiency.
From a total engineering perspective it significantly increases in-efficiency and risk.
Looks like it was designed to target small scale residential market of hot climates

As usual this is the last and worst place for info on crypto gear.

Too bad so sorry but you engrish long nose round eye's can't buy it.

Only for China market first....later you suckers can have ...after we take most profit first..
33  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: Is ALL mining in China heading towards doom? on: August 25, 2018, 03:45:34 AM
Do you know any native Chinese? Do you Speak Mandarin? Have you ever lived there?

I speak Mandarin and lived there 6 years and have many native friends into crypto bigtime.

You could not be more wrong are clueless about China. They have Bitcoin by the balls.
They absolutely have TOTAL domination over Bitcoin and love it and are not about to do anything stupid to hurt it or loss it.
China is by FAR the most bitcoin friendly and bitcoin hungry country in the world.
News of clampdown on mining ops is grossly exaggerated and limited to energy sensitive areas and small independent electricity stealing ops.
(Electricity theft is a HUGE problem in China)
Clamp downs on scammy traders/exchanges and ICO's IS happening which is a VERY good thing.
The hash rate explosion of the last 6 months has been dominated by Chinese DOMESTIC sales.
There are VERY few places in the world left that can compete with China's CHEAP coal Megawatt plants..which they make at the rate of 1/month
Most of the overseas cheap electricity has already long been secured and sucked up by Chinese Interests just as they are aggressively investing in African raw minerals etc. 
The massive expansion of Chinese pools alone is obvious confirmation.
The Chinese Central Committee is VERY active to CENTRALIZE and dominate the BTC market in both hardware AND mining.
The massive OVERSEAS growth in mining ops in USA/Canada has been mostly funded by Bitmain.

So say my Chinese friends...but it's a shit hole to live there..they all want to come to US/Canada

The fatal flaw is this.


Most of mankind has no idea what thinking is.
What Mankind calls thought is but "Sense Based Reasoning" This is not is simple plagiarism from programming of the SENSES.
For further reading on the topic READ Mark Twain's Essay, "What is Man".

Mankind is infantile,ignorant,arrogant and negligent.

MIND alone thinks.

For further illumination on this concept.
Read "A New Concept of The Universe" By Walter Russell

And remember... comment without investigation is the epitome of ignorance..self imposed and self deceived.

38  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: Bitmain coming to Texas. on: August 07, 2018, 04:11:48 PM
I mean they already created one shitcoin they was willing to put their name behind.

Actually they scammed people on several other coins as well..
Don't forget the Bytom fiasco...they really fucked everyone who bought a B3.
They did MASSIVE secret pre-mining on Sia before dumping the A3 on the market too.
Ditto when they destroyed Dash and ONLY THEN started dumping the D3 shitbox. ( and are still desperate to give them and A3's away)

The only Texans that will benefit will be politicians and a few well connected contractors.
At the expense of other Texans of course.

Well my S11/B52's with the latest Inno. firmware averages about 4.1Th. on factory setting 4.3Th on performance
BUT THE HW ERRORS ARE INSANE.....I think this is a stratum problem, (tons of invalid nonce messages) means pools aren't well set-up for ASICS
I have great airflow/cooling so tried the performance mode but power usage and temp increase does not justify the minuscule hashrate increase...and yes a board tends to die on performance and is tricky to get it back up with reboots and downgrade of tuning.
Also when running on performance tuning, units vibrate like hell when temps reach 80c and fans are 80%+ added noise is considerable

My D9/B29's have exact same issues. 1.8Th on Balanced 2.1Th on Factory 2.36Th on performance.
Same problem with insane amount of HW errors..Performance mode tuning is not worth the heat and power consumption and board problems.
At least they don't have the high vibration problem when running hot in performance tuning mode.

I have some IBelink's on the way...had enough of Inno/Dragon....unless they do another huge drop in price AND accept BTC at market rate.
Even then very reluctant.
