21  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: Poloniex crash Ripple peak on: May 09, 2017, 02:50:24 AM
Yes it's funny how "suddenly" Polo started to lag out after that huge pump. If there's no polo issues the XRP would've skyrocketed even more by letting more noobs to buy. The only people that made profit from all of this madness was people that had bots running and Polo of course, because when you trade with bots there's no lag. Or the people who used the mobile version on their phones (like I do). Because if you switch to desktop version on your phone it will start lagging like you are on your computer but it's a tiny bit better. So mobile version is definitely a go if you don't have a trading bot. So that's how sometimes is really handy to have one of those trading bots. It can scoop up huge profit for you while everyone else is struggling and trying to sell their coins at top price.

Same thing happened with LTC I can't actually remember the right date as I don't want to throw random information. But yeah, same thing with LTC, bull trap started and unexpected things happened. A lot of noobs started diving into LTC, huge amounts of LTC buy orders filling like crazy and right at that point when it had huuuuge buy support and started to even tripple, Polo "suddenly" started to lag out and after it settle again like everything back to normal so people can start buy/sell the price was where the bulls started it (back to normal) and it started to fall.

I still believe XRP will get back to its peak price but it will just take a bit more time at this point, unless more exciting news, because I know there are so many bagholders that bought at .5 and I feel so bad for them. Patience is the key  Wink


They just did the same with STR.  Mega pump, then crash.  I was lucky to not get stuck in the mess due to the mobile side still running.  I've pulled all my coins off that site.

ive moved to Bittrex.

Second that.  I'm done with polo.  They'll Gox soon.

Just to be the truth here:

Poloniex crashed, and while it crashed someone was able to sell and nobody was able to buy STR and that's the only reason why it dropped. I was unable to buy more STR at all.

This caused me to remove my assets from Poloniex.  Not only was I afraid of a Gox/Crypsy moment, I realized you can't make money when the exchange chokes when it's busy.

I can get cpuminer working and mining scrypt by leaving the st32 driver intact and using the assigned port in the startup bat.  I can get cgminer running and mining SHA by using zadig and replacing the driver with a win32 driver. but I can't get them working at the same time, as you would dual mining.  Cpuminer can't find the gridseed if the win32 driver is installed. Cgminer can't communicate with the gridseed if the ST32 driver is installed.  Being as I want to dual mine, what do I do?  I've got them both working, just not together.

I had to look to see if I wasn't on godlikeproductions.  This is the kind of idiocy I expect to read there, not here.

Crypto really is declining, and in ways I hadn't imagined.

Went all "Franken-Jupiter" with my 6 module November. Running at 1.47 TH/S at 1400W. You can also see my Bitfury gear. 2 rigs run at 760 GH/S and use 750W. Have 5 S1's and 2 Dragons that are housed in my office.



You know that's a painted metal rack that you have naked pcb's resting on, each with a heavy vibrating fan pushing down on them...

I'd get something under those units asap before a through hole solder joint finds something it likes under that paint.

Sandor, ever since 0.9g, I'm getting the following message when connecting to MiningRigRentals. As you can see, the stratum server name also changes to some odd characters. Eventually, it says it cannot connect to stratum "http(null)". Not sure if it's an issue on my side or not



Sandor, have you had a chance to look at this please? Something changed after 0.9f, I can't connect to MiningRigRentals with any of the latest versions. I think when they redirect the stratum connection to a different port, it fails?

Code:

[2014-05-12 22:51:13] Stratum connection failed: Couldn't resolve host 'http(null)'
 [2014-05-12 22:51:13] ...retry after 5 seconds

Works fine here.



To expand on this a bit, for me on windows and a single gridseed the miner won't actually connect to a pool. It says it's connected, resetting chips, sending work, ect ect, but nothing is happening at the pool's end.  I tried a few different pools and even cgminer to make sure I wasn't losing my mind. I've only altered the conf.json for my port (1) and pool settings.

First of all gmaxwell, .....
Whatever happens, this forum has been a great place to learn, and I thank you all (well most of you) for your participation in my education!



I am in completely in line with your line of thinking, albeit on a smaller scale. 

However, hardware seems to depreciate at an accelerated rate in the face of ASIC's.  My rig of 1.98 mh/s (couldn't hit the 2k hurdle with one 7970 ($300 ebay, 11/28/13 ), one 7950 ($332, don't ask...01/24/14) and two 5850's ($125, 01/10/14 and $99, 12/26/13) draws around 800 watts.  I bought a gridseed 5 chip ($130, 04/29/14) which brings me to 2300ish kh/s and have been mining with a handful of 5850's (@ 20~ kh/s_) since I figured out the train was already doing 100 mph by the time I got on board.

My cost of electricity is .098 cents/kw/h. Any idiot not sitting next to a screaming rig wondering how to keep it from melting down in the summer heat knows ASIC miners are the future and the demise of the hobby.  $20/day?  LOL!  Try $2/day.  If you're lucky.  Got an extra $1,000 floating around for a scrypt blade?  I know I don't. Sell the cards I have?  Nah.  I'll game with them.  Then probably relegate them to the green board pile in the spare room.

Just like Nascar, the little people get run out by the money.

Can somebody host the 32 bit wallet for this coin if they have it?  The main website's link isn't working.


We just reset the link --should be working

This happens in Chrome.

34  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: GridSeed 5-chip USB miner voltage mod on: May 09, 2014, 06:18:36 PM
so the silver ones are less stable overclockable?
It may boil down to the silicon lottery. I haven't volt modded mine, so the results are just out of the box. I did notice my board has micro LED's on it instead of the reg. ones pictured. Can't remember if it had 2 or 3 mosfets though.

Edit: It has 3 mosfets.
35  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: GridSeed 5-chip USB miner voltage mod on: May 09, 2014, 12:48:37 PM
Hi everyone, I picked up some more gridseeds, however this time when they arrived they were silver, and they seem to be pulling 12.5 watts stock on my power meter. My previous gold ones pulled about 8 watts. Is there a major difference between the silver and the gold? I am currently using autotune to see if the extra voltage being pulled translates in to higher overclocks. It seems that they are used as well.. its possible that they have been volt modded somehow possibly? Anybody have any extra information about the different gridseed versions?

I've got a silver one myself.  If anyone needs pics of the board I'll happily crack it open.  I don't have a watt meter, but as far as overclocking, this one likes 800 mhz and hits 320's kh/s. (miner and pool together). 850 starts driving down the number of accepts, (360 kh/s miner, 200's pool side) and hw starts into the teens in a 24hr period. 900 mhz gets the hash rate to almost 400, but almost no accepts on the pool side, and a ridiculous amount of hw's. I don't think (at least mine) it's volt modded.

BTW, anyone figure out what the button on the board does?

I've recently been using sgminer 4.1.0 on scrypt, as it allows my pile of mongrel cards (2x5800's, 2X7900's) to coexist peacefully under one miner instance. Without reading 400 pages, can someone point me to a sgminer modified for vertcoin?  The way the multipools are getting ddos'ed and the dwindling profitability of scrypt coins in general due to asic farms coming on line, I think it's time I moved my small rig.
 
37  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Am I too late? on: March 17, 2014, 10:33:25 PM
If you look at the accelerated rate litecoin and altcoin-in-general difficulty has risen in march alone vs bitcoin, you might have picked this emoticon instead.  Shocked
Bitcoin is slower and more stable in the difficulty rise.  Hence, hardware roi will take less time.

100mh/s network and 3.0 difficulty! This one's going to zero fast.
39  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Am I too late? on: March 15, 2014, 11:53:54 PM
Yes, you're too late.  Too many people came in at once, went balls deep in debt and threw mega hash farms online.  This happened at the precise time every other mouth breather figured out how to make their "own" coin, and severely diluted the markets. Add to that the numerous multipools that have sprung up and the perfect storm has occurred.

Many coins have to die, and many miners as well (figuratively)  for us to even think about the "Golden Days" of even a few months ago. Dark days are here and I'm moving directly to mining bitcoin with asic's.

Bring the pain.  I'll be waiting for better days.

You know profitability is still much better than it was roughly a year ago [about the time I jumped into LTC mining].  At that time LTC difficulty was in the sub 1000 difficulty range, but it was also only worth $3, hell even went as low as $2 for a while.  Difficulty may now be 5x higher, but value of LTC is also up by roughly 6x as well.  

Many coins will die over the coming months, but ultimately we will see profitability remain for GPUs for a while now.  Gridseed ASICs are going to begin impacting profitability though in those months.  With power requirements so low on the Gridseeds, it is going to be much easier for there to be en-masse farms of them.  

Right now your power costs need to be below .15 cents or so for profitability on GPUs to remain appealing, and even then you are cutting it close.  I'm currently paying .11 cents and will be looking into adjustments.
So right now you should be telling us your power rate, as that determines whether this is a worthwhile venture for you.   Smiley
My power as residential is 9.6701 cents per kilowatt hour.  I was lured by the easy money of about 6 months ago and began learning about crypto and figuring out what I could mine with.  At first it was cpu mining. The I found a hd5450 I had laying around could mine. A friend had a bushel of them he gave me and pretty soon I had mined enough to spring for a 7970.  A little while later, a 5850, then another 5850 along with a 7950 joined the fray. I had golden dreams making about $20/day on alt coins with 2gh/s.  Now, at $6-7 bucks a day I'm on the verge of unplugging the rig, selling the cards and picking up an antminer  s1, 180 GH/s at 300 watts. At current rates that's $14/day at 1/3 the power cost.  I don't see a happy end to this alt coin story.
