It wouldn't be the worst thing as c-cex really let themselves go. Sometimes you can't even raise support tickets as they have the system disabled. And they take forever to update wallets. And there's the nonsense where every summer they go into holiday mode and you can't withdraw stuff like Bitcoin for months.

Anyway, I don't think they'll delist the coin though.

Oh no, one Bitcoin is now only worth five thousands dollars. Pack it up boys, it's clearly worthless and dead.

Don't use anything 3rd party tools when it comes to crypto. It's probably a scam to steal your private keys or something.


Edit: even if the extension is not connecting to a server to send data, they can change that anytime silently buy pushing an update through the store. You can edit the extension manifest to disable updates but if you can do that then you can also use copy paste and/or a text file to keep track of your public addresses.

Nice contact before buying and very nice cases.

Nevertheless, I can not recommend this provider.

I ordered two cases to Germany to build miners and resell. Both cases arrived damaged, so they are no longer available for resale. Screws were knocked off, handles on the front hung only on one screw and were bent heavily. But above all, there was only a thin foil between the two cases and presumably through the parts of the srews both cases were scratched at several points. Everything was covered with pictures.

And all that was offered after repeated contact, was to send "a few screws and rivets"... Until no further answer came...

Conclusion: EUR 415, - written off...

Sad to hear they still don't package the cases properly. I had the same issue, cases arrived scratched and bent though it was fine for me as I bent it back and didn't mind the scratches. These were much cheaper than other solutions at the time.

These things are way too heavy to be packaged only in a couple layer of foil.

7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Can mining rigs be monetized by renting them as render farms? on: October 30, 2018, 02:03:20 AM
So now after two years since the last post, are there any solutions yet to see whether the current usage of those GPU mining rigs can also be setup to use for 3D rendering like setup?  Roll Eyes

Could be but I don't know of any. Problem is, even if there was some, very likely they'd only need to use your cards for just a few hours at a time. And rendering usually comes with big filesizes not just tiny hashes so GPU mining rigs might require lots of disk space and high bandwidth connections. Profesisonal rendering or other professional uses of GPU arrays might also require secrecy and they might just invest the money into GPUs as well.

Anyway, I'm hoping something will pop up but it's hard to imagine that whatever would come up, it wouldn't be instantly oversaturated by all the GPU miners, essentially bringing down the profits to mining levels - which are not great these days.

Yeah, but it's safe to say the difficulty won't go down. If anything, in 2 years I think it will probably be somewhere like 5-10 times higher than it is now because in that time the next ASICs will come which will skyrocket the difficulty as they sykrocketed when the first wave came.

Difficulty chart: https://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/dash-difficulty.html

Buying Dash is probably much better - especially with the current prices all around - than getting involved with genesis.
Well the chart shows a big decrease in mining difficulty to (may 2018-september 2018), so it can go down dramatically to.
(Probably the Dash price most of the time will follow the drop in mining diff... but mot always!)

So its to much to say "it's safe to say the difficulty won't go down", its more complicated then that. However when dash price go`s for any reason MOON, the new ASICS will soon be there to fill the gap indeed.

For some investors mining whit Genesis Mining still can be a good option for them. For me personally I will wait for other kind of mining contract or more options to mine other coins. Love to mine forgotten coins  Cool

I don't think so. Diff went down because of how many ASICs were shipped; there were so many of them that for many people by the time the got them, they weren't going to get their investment back.
In 2 years the difficulty is virtually guaranteed to go waaaay up. I'd bet on that. Who knows how many new ASICs will come by that time - but they will come.

Anyway, Genesis' offers are pretty terrible across the board.

Hey, heliumchain.info's staking reward estimates seem to be way off. Like in reality I get half to 1/3rd as much rewards as it suggests.
A user (unobt) told me he's using 50*staking_amount/difficulty for estimating HLM rewards per day which seems spot on to me. I think that should be the correct equation on heliumchain.info.

I don't have masternodes so I'm wondering, does the sites masternode reward estimates correct?

who's ROI'd with genesis mining without using the affiliation program?

I bought Monero hashrate and if we're looking at it in Bitcoin with XMR's current value then I'm at 32% towards returning my initial Bitcoin investmen in 11 months. Which I think is the more important metric to look at, but if we're looking at how much I've spent in USD compared to how much the XMR I got is worth, then I'm at 14%.

seems like they are delisted it without any announcements...

https://img.techpowerup.org/180824/p1kalmig2k177.jpg

Wow, that's crazy. They want close to $100k per month for a single coin while they don't even process BTC or other withdrawals because they're vacationing. Parasites.

what happened
24/08/18 To day I can't see coin in C-CEX exchange
or Admin remove coin?
yesterday can see coin is it. but today not see it.   



It says "Wallet not compilable...   " on C-CEX. They're on skeleton crew until the 31st so I wouldn't expect them fixing it before that.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][EXCHANGE] Poloniex - Crypto Exchange with BTC/NXT on: June 22, 2018, 04:47:00 PM
I just got the email saying my account is locked.

They basically pulled a bittrex.

It's outrageous that they freeze funds until they accept verifications and doesn't let legacy users withdraw their funds.. I mean they are literally incentivized to decline verifications for whatever reason because that means they can steal your funds. That's a huge conflict that both bittrex and now polo abuses to scam users.

I wonder, did the orphan issue with zPIV staking got fixed?

Since no one else more knowledgeable has chimed in yet...

It's still an issue, in that people are still getting a lot of orphans. However, most users are reporting that they're receiving the correct number of accepted stakes, so while it's annoying, it doesn't seem to be affecting reward rates significantly.

The devs are aware of the situation and are working on a solution, plus some more upgrades. I don't know any more details than that, or an ETA for a new wallet release.

Thank you. From my initial tests, I earned roughly about 25% less coins staking zPIV as I did with PIV staking so the orphan rate (which I believe is around roughly 50%) seemed to be correct. But, my experience should not be taken as fact by any means because of variance.

Nothing's good with Genesis.

Just got a single XMR payout 3 days ago after 2 months of nothing, even though I had payments every couple of days before. The way they handled the Monero fork is just another public display of scammy behaviour.

@EleanorZ Iím not an official PIVX but do try and post here to help with communicating with those who donít use discord or twitter or reddit.  I do think Discord is the best place to go for updates info and support issues and questions.

I believe there was plenty of clear posts in here regarding the update as being mandatory so should be no excuse to not be done, if any user still didnít get the message someone should be able to help in discord on getting an up to date blockchain or resybcing again.

Also if not aware Ledger hardware wallet is having issues with PIVX but they are working on it , the desktop wallet and blockchain is working fine, just an issue with ledger.

Yes and we thank you.

But I do believe discord is a poor choice as it's a hugbox/echochamber; the only people going there are the ones looking to talk about PIVX. No strangers just popping in and you can't really be very critical and argue about anything that's unpopular as you'll go against the tide and lose. I believe the main channel of communication should be a neutral source, like this forum. It's also a PITA to search for stuff on discord (very high noise to signal ratio) and the search function is pretty bad as well imo. But I also understand the majority of people doesn't share the same opinion as me.

Maybe meeting halfway would be good; as in having a bot that posts all the semi-important announcements to all channels.


On another note, staking zPIV results in about ~50-60% orphan rate so currently staking regular PIV is a better option profit-wise but collectively staking zPIV probably provides more information helping to find the cause.

What I do know for sure after testing that it's not a computational power bottleneck and I believe it's also not a network bottleneck.

JOIN DISCORD

Discord is considered garbage by many - which won't change.

For a coin like PIVX I don't think it would be too much to ask to have all the important details also broadcasted here - especially since the coin itself started here.

For example, knowing the block reward changes in advance would have been nice...

Other than that it was a nice and smooth upgrade, well done to the team.

Enemy 1.03 is strangely faster than alexis for x17 about 5%.

It being closed source and the git removed, is that miner safe?
