Why not do something productive for the coin and buy some like the rest of us.

Buying is productive for the exchange where you buy it (as they get a cut) and for the people who bought BC lower than you, as their holdings are now worth more. Buying isn't productive for the coin. BC itself is productive at the rate of 1% per year...

this is going to happen as coinkite has accepted BC

so now merchants can start using BC

I've recently bought gold at http://www.coaex.com/ they also accept BC

Again, that's a good start, but coinkite is only used in like 30 locations. I think they have a good product, but sitting on our collective thumbs waiting for coinkite to hit isn't going to convince any vendors to accept BC. What convinces vendors is when they see it actually being used and making other vendors money.

...is there any real store thats accepts blackcoin somewhere?

I think this is the crux of it. If nobody can actually use Blackcoin for anything other than trading, what is it good for? The price will just keep wildly fluctuating until trading excitement cools and it dies like all the other altcoins.

So if you really want blackcoin to succeed, you need to stop screaming "BUY NOW, YOU FOOLS!" and "HOOOOOLD!" and instead start looking for ways to use blackcoin in commerce. The wallet card and blackcoinstore.com are a fine start, and of course I sell my novels for BC, but there's no way blackcoin will get permanent value until not only vendors accept BC, but people actually start buying stuff from those vendors.

Due to the recent, uhhh, fluctuations in the price of BC, I just updated my little script so you can set the price in BC or USD. If you set it to USD, the price will be converted to BC at the processor.

For those who missed it a couple of days ago, BCCP PHP is a free simple script to help you automatically sell a digital product for blackcoin. It is super simple to set up, and uses coinpayments.net as the processor. Once a user's payment is verified, they are automatically send a download link. Downloads are available for as many days as you want after a user's purchase.

Okay, while reading this thread is always amusing (and next Thursday the price of BC will BE AT LEAST 1.6 BRAZILLIAN satoshi, right after my mafia contacts ice the guy who keeps putting up buywalls) I thought I'd do something useful.

So I wrote a little script that allows you to sell a digital product automatically for BC.

A customer goes to your site and clicks the buy button. He is then taken to coinpayments to actually process the payment. Once coinpayments verifies that the funds have been sent, the customer is emailed a download link for your product.

To set it up, you sign up for a merchant account at coinpayments, change some text in the settings file, then upload the script (along with your product file) to your site.

You can read more about it / download it at http://www.storyhack.com/bccp

I also have a live demo where I'm selling my two novels as a bundle, so you can see how it works. http://www.storyhack.com/bc_bundle

Okay, the problem was the power to the usb hub. I had the hub plugged into a surge protector (& a nice one at that), but when I switched it to the wall directly, everything worked.

Just in case anybody ever has the same problem.

Let me correct that: sometimes windows will pick up both antminers on  the hub. Often, it's only one of them. However, if I plug the antminers directly into my windows machine, BFGminer always picks up both.

Okay, so like many posters around here, I am brand new to mining. I thought it'd be fun to see how everything works. I have 2 Antminer U2s, and a powered USB hub. On windows I'm currently using BFGminer 3.10.0 with the Antminers plugged into the hub. When I run it, I both Antminers hash madly away.

I also have a BeagleBone Black, so I wanted to get it to work as a low power controller. I installed Ubuntu 13.10 on it and then got BFGminer 3.10.0 to compile on it. When I plug one of the antminers into the USB port on the BBB, BFGminer works fine and I hash right about at the advertised 2Gh.

When I plug one or both of the AntMiners into the hub (same hub I was using on windows) BFGminer cannot find either of them. Ubuntu can't seem to find them either. when I use lsusb, I see the two built in USB buses as well as my powered hub, but no Antminers. To see if it was something wrong with the hub, I plugged in a thumbdrive to one of the empty ports on the hub and rebooted the BBB. This time the BBB could detect the hub and the thumbdrive plugged into it, but still no Antminers.

Just for kicks, I tried it all again on another powered hub, with the same results.

Is there something I'm doing wrong? Are both my hubs crap? What else can I try to fix the issue?
