1  Economy / Economics / What's up with MtGox? on: June 14, 2011, 01:38:37 PM
Everytime I try to check MtGox it appears to be down or smthn? Anyone knows details?
2  Economy / Economics / Re: Predictions for next week? on: June 12, 2011, 06:08:52 PM
my predictions: price will go up because we will face another difficulty increase. oh well, noone can tell what the next weekend brings.
3  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Instead of raising the difficulty on: June 12, 2011, 04:21:58 PM
Unfortunately, there is no "they" that can change it.  It's built into the protocol and the clients.
You can't easily "tune" it to make changes to the global environment, nor would you want to, as you'd open yourself up for abuse.

this!


even if your idea is not that bad, there is nothing anyone here can do about it. deal with it, it's part of the game.
4  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: If mining becomes inprofitable in the next few days, I can always count on... on: June 12, 2011, 10:26:27 AM
WOW - just WOW, start thinking guys.

If mining becomes improfitable, then noone would mine anymore - difficulty would go back to where it came from - BAZINGA, mining is profitable again.

But yeah, sell your hardware.

Server is currently DDoSed.


when can we expect it to be back up?
6  Economy / Economics / do you really think it's over? on: June 11, 2011, 10:59:56 PM
I mean, seriously? You may call it a bubble, a ponzi-scheme or whatever but if you think the "hype" is over, well only god can help you. I'm from Germany and judging by the few active users in the german bitcoin forum and by asking my friends bitcoin just STARTED to become popular in germany, thats millions of people just waiting to be part of the hype.

I wont advise anyone to buy or sell, and maybe i am even in the wrong forum here cuz i'm not a big bagholder or anything, just a regular miner @ 1.5 gigahashes in a pool, always selling when i have my coins. But at the moment, heck i won't sell. Prices WILL go up. even if bitcoin like dissappeares into insignificance and get's practically worthless, everybody would stop mining cuz hey, who would waste electricity for something worthless, right? but that would cause the difficulty to go down so much, that you could mine again profitably, or do you just think all the sites and pools would be taken down and whole project bitcoin would come to an end. just share your thoughts and oppinions.
greetings from germany.
7  Economy / Economics / Re: Everyone understands that this wont last right? on: June 11, 2011, 07:09:22 PM
who cares about the government. there are more severe threats to bitcoins than this.
8  Economy / Economics / Re: Don't SELL !! on: June 11, 2011, 04:54:40 PM
please sell! i bought a lot of btc today at 14$ - its great how easy it is to make profit due to 99% of the people in btc business being total idiots.
9  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: Mt. Gox drops to 20, reconsidering your mining rigs? on: June 10, 2011, 09:36:56 PM
in advance i apologize for my bad english. i'm not a native speaker.


there are quite a few things to be considered here and most people seem not to see this.
firstly: a market correction was more than necessary, cmon people 19$ per btc and 34$ per btc at the same difficulty, are you shitting me? please, start to think for a second.
secondly: there is no way to wire money to mtgox, it's weekend. weekend always means more fluctuation.
thirdly: maybe most important point. the chain reaction of selling. one starts, price drops, people get scared and sell, price drops even more.
10  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: HELP is my macbook pro completely obsolete for mining? on: June 10, 2011, 09:49:48 AM
if you managed to mine on the video card you could pull an amazing 6 megahashes/sek or something....which means you would only waste electricity because you need about 100 macbooks to generate the power of one 5970 which costs 600 bucks.

I have an old desktop with 4 gigs of ddr2 and an nvidia geforce 9600 GT, would it be worth it then?

nope. you would still waste more money on energy - nvidia cardes are ineffective for mining, buy ati and win.

12  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: best rate for mh/s from single card? best rate you've ever gotten including oc? on: June 10, 2011, 08:21:31 AM
its not water cooled and i OCed my memory because, and I am not trolling you with this one, i just get a bluescreen if I OC gpu but not the memory, don't ask me why.i just figured it out by playing a lot with the after burner. but to be fair, i can only sustain those hashes for about 2 hours, the card gets unstable and crashes then, but when i turn the cpu clock down a little I stell get 770mhash/sec and the card has been stable for about 2 days now.

currently i am at work, but i can upload a screenshot later if you want to. 5970 can potentially hash over 800.
13  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: best rate for mh/s from single card? best rate you've ever gotten including oc? on: June 10, 2011, 06:03:52 AM
828 mhashes/sec @ xfx 5970 black edition, OCed to 925/1300.
14  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: I am a complete newbie to Bitcoins, please help me out! on: June 09, 2011, 01:17:44 PM
if you run your computer 24/7 you will have your first block in about 125 years, with no difficulty increase. sounds awesome, doesnt it.
15  Bitcoin / Mining / Is MtGox paying? on: June 09, 2011, 01:15:35 PM
Yeah, basic question, i live inside the EU and i heared a lot of complaints today that MtGox is scamming people, not transferring the money etc.
Is it bogus? Is it true? please tell me, i've only mined so far, but never sold. So is MtGox trustworthy?
16  Local / Deutsch (German) / Re: Wie viele MHash/s hat Deutschland? on: June 09, 2011, 01:12:10 PM
die umfrage oben bezieht sich ja auch darauf wieviel DU, ALSO DU PERSÖNLICH, gesamt hast.
btt: mein rig steht seit gestern mit 2* xfx radeon 5970 black edition, overclocked auf 875/1300 und ich mach konstante 1.45 gigahash bei ca 0.91kw/h stromverbrauch.
17  Local / Deutsch (German) / Re: MtGox usw. on: June 09, 2011, 12:10:50 PM
Wie lange dauert das eigentlich bis MtGox das mal überweist (BTC->EUR)? Ich warte bereits seit 4 Werktagen und bezweifle, dass heute noch was ankommt, also wären das 5 Werktage. Hat da jemand Erfahrung mit?

3-5 werktage.
18  Local / Deutsch (German) / Re: Hat jemand 6990er Karten? on: June 09, 2011, 12:07:28 PM
5970er lohnen sich weit mehr.
19  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: First Day on: June 09, 2011, 12:01:27 PM
I'm doing 500Mhash/s, and over the last 12 hours i have got .17BTC. I am using BTCGuild for the pool, and there doesnt seem to be any issues with my hardware. Yet it looks like my calculated performance per Mhash/s is less than half of what you are getting. Shouldn't i be at .4BTC per 12 hour period?

yes, you should, which payment option did you choose, pay per share or propotional?
20  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Difficulty News - 6/8 on: June 09, 2011, 11:27:07 AM
may I add something, or is it only me thinking this way: if the difficulty increases by about 30% or smthn again, WHO CARES, price was rising from 18 to 30 dollars in the last 36 hours, it's more than fair that difficulty is increasing, otherwise mining would become MORE profitable, its good as it is.
