In any case, the Bitcoin Gold will take part of the power of mining from the altcoins. So that the miners of all coins will be satisfied.

I don't think many people will mine it from the start, you'll get your BTG a lot faster by importing your private keys than waiting for blocks to mature.

I would hold off i know some won't but i am just gonna have some btc on that key encase an wait till i see it's ok to use safety . and gonna start Mining day one if it's possible with 4 rigs...
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Server PSU and GPU mining tip on: October 18, 2017, 05:34:52 PM
if you would rather use a server PSU to power those GPU rigs .. I discovered one way I'm sure others know of it..
all you need is the breakout board that matches the PSU you want to use and a few cables and a DC 12V 160W 24Pin Pico ATX Switch PSU,

 i would go with a 150 watt or better...Pico ATX Switch PSU

for the CPU EPS plug on the mother board from the server PSU using a PCIe cable you can use a pcei 6 pin cable from PSU to the CPU EPS plug with the below converter ,this takes a lot of stress off the Pico ATX Switch psu so it only powers the Mother board and SSD the CPU is powered from the Server PSU with a true 12 V constant. link below.

DC 12V 160W 24Pin Pico ATX Switch PSU..

you can make you own PCIe to barrel plug to power DC 12V 160W 24Pin Pico ATX Switch PSU, this gives you some idea what to use ...... i bought cables at one time ten with out the barrel plugs for 10 bucks an a 10 pack of barrel plugs for less then 7.99 on ebay and was able to make ten and save ...

 just a tip or two to help out and save you some cash for the more important things for that rig like cards won't need a ATX PSU to power the Mother board unless you like it that way. i didn't so i did some reading an found out how to do it with a  sever psu that is a safer and better way to me and save a lot of cash on psu power for that rig.

The links in this post are general links to give some idea,as to what you need ...

Yeah I can definitely tell those cables didn't come out of my shop.

the 2400 watt delta psu they sell is nice.
the break out boards seem okay

but  aluminum wire is meh and it may be 18 gauge not 16

Sidehack boards work on those i use one with two of Sidehack boards...

That link downloads the latest minera image which is 0.8.1  Sad

Those people who have upgraded to 0.8.1 - do you use nicehash o MMR?   If so, are you having issues?

I use nice hash with MMR and minera some times with one Scrpt miners or my A6/sha256 miner, no issues here.

why upgrade just install 8.1 the image link on page one is 8.1 i thought ...I. don't know for sure I manually install minera my pi are not RPI all but one is .. i even manually install minera on that one RPI3 from a clean install with Ubuntu 16.

Does anyone have a 0.7.0 image i could grab please Grin

if that doesn't work and you know how to install it manually try here here

there use to be a way to get any of the images builds by typing the build number in a link i forgot how to and if you still can ..

Block chain or blockchain is not a technology, nothing hot, nothing new, as old as hashing.
Blockchain is not green , is not eco, is the most expensive idea ever implemented in the public,
to make "idiots busy" - following an old Internet hoax - How to make idiot busy.

Selling refurbished hardware stuff is as old on the eBay as eBay self.

So you are free to buy or not to buy and negotiate terms, discuss details, exactly as buying new/used car.

That wasn't my point

O an that makes it ok to sell Used junk as new ? least on Ebay you can do something about it in most cases you get your money back.. with bitmain GL.

an in this case this no negotiating terms.. you either buy it or you don't used or new bitmain doesn't care you get what they sell you, with no claim as to if it's new or used and bitmian used to or at least acted like they  cared til the antminer S5 came out an about then they started getting what they think is control , which is to rich for there own good.

You missed my whole point ...

The block chain or  blockchain or whatever , is a technology not a hardware technology but it is a technology and that technology is needed to trade bitcoins or any coin...or mine
I never once thought of it, as a way to get rich, sigh..

why am i even bothering to explain to a Newbie who is either a troll or in learning mode or made a account so he or she could try to make others look bad without letting on who he or she really is ...

I was only commenting about how bad bitmain got over the years because of greed mostly, an there time is coming and we may have some new and fresh players that care or are honest to some degree from the free world an the OP is right , most of us know how bad bitmain is, an it's all ways good to see others prove it .

I'll shut up now before this leads to something it shouldn't...

 PROOF: Bitmain is selling old hardware as NEW miners!

LMAO who needed Proof it's all ways been that way ....

I hope when japan starts to take over next year that company is honest and sells new gear and not used shit .Sense it's a free world company we just might see some form of honestly again ..  i know some will say most in the free world are this or that, then go live in china I say lol then come back and say that, soon they will out law bitcoins or limit the use so bad in china no one will care or want to deal with china any more bitcoin wise, SO what if they do there lose the rest of the world won't care in fact in my State BTCS  has opened the first public US block chain so a email i just got claimed ..things in my state are really starting to look good and not Because of the commander in chief ass hole in office either ..
bitmain  pissed me off to the point i told them fuck off and i haven't bought one thing from them sense and won't but that's me ...I could have a few times so  I put it into GPUS and Scrpt miners etc and I'm not pushing GPU's here, I know better ..I like mining and can't give it up...... mostly for fun and I learn a lot and i will admit it for the cash.


PS: i remember a time when Bitmain may have seemed honest and told us they were selling used miner and sold them as used not any more they don't care .an. in there eyes why should they that got and keep getting what they want form us ...and we let them so who's fault is it really .. well any way GL i hope you some how get some thing back in return at some point .

13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Solar powered CPU mining on: September 29, 2017, 06:35:41 AM
I don't see the point of a dedicated solar system for mining. Solar is just one power source and mining is just one
power load. Why not connect the solar to the house power as a hybrid system where you can use solar for everything
when it's available and commercial power when not. This would avoid imbalances in power availability and load.
A dedicated solar mining system would either have excess load leaving some mining HW without power or
too much power that can't be absorbed by the mining HW and would have to be bled off and wasted. A hybrid system\
would ensure all the mining HW is mining all the time.
Using GRID-TIE and exporting your excess electricity in to the grid just like joblo said and of course no need for battery since it will make your cost double. What you need is inverter that greater from your current need since you just can add more solar panel later (if you got small budget).
Yeah, especially that requlations in EU country can be funny ( In my country, we have to PAY to grid owner tax for sending him our produced electricity and they act as Vault of Energy, taking additional 20% of it for free - not good option :x )

in the US the Electric Company pays us for any thing we make and don't use Smiley . but some solar company's if you rent there panels will charge you for what you don't use in the US i found that kind of stupid, so I stayed a way form them sense most of the ones i looked at lets us keep anything left over an auto sells it to the to the Electric Company by law they  have to take it and pay us but we have to stay on the Grind in my state .

some states in the US  are trying what you deal with in the EU but it won't pass . mostly the Republican states .

15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Mining Zcash on: September 29, 2017, 05:17:52 AM
Some incredible mining profit spikes on Zcash since last night but they only last a few minutes.  My rig makes about $8-9 per day the last week mining ETH/DCR or Zcash and last night Zcash spiked to $11.50 for a few minutes.

I'm even mining it with my AMD cards.  I did not realize how little power 570s and 580s use to mine Zcash compared to ETH and ETH/dual mining.  My 4 AMD cards are using almost 300W less when mining ZCash vs ETH/DCR!  That works out to about 75 cents per day saved on power and everything runs much cooler.  So now I am factoring that into my decisions about what to mine.

yup indeed but for how long ...

 i have all ways mined Zec no matter what, sense it came out last OCt 2016 live . and it has lasted, I'm impressed, I like the idea, i guess, is why and like it more then ETH ...
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Good Network Switch? on: September 29, 2017, 05:11:00 AM
When it comes to network products there is only one number one in the world. That is without a single doubt the CISCO NETWORKS SYSTEM.

 Cisco has had a few turkey products over the years mostly in their "consumer-grade" gear, but overall in routers they are generally the best (their "consumer-grade" stuff though isn't nearly as good as their "pro-grade" stuff).
 For switches, they WERE at least matched by 3Com (I'd actually argue the 3Com SWITCHES were better but it was very close) and are still CURRENTLY matched by Netgear pro-level hardware.

 Cisco DOES get argued with on the high end for routers - but it's by other high-end companies most folks have never heard of because they ONLY make high-end gear.

they all have had turkey products...... no one company is immune to bad products no matter how much others like to  think different .
a lot would be amazed if they knew who really made a lot of the cheaper stuff or even some of the high end stuff..
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: 2 Vega 56 s and Claymore's Ethereum miner on: September 29, 2017, 04:58:28 AM
There's a whole thread on Vega Performance that I'd encourage you to read.

This could be several things. Try switching crossfire to off. That has caused some users issues.

Good news, your suggestion about Crossfire worked! Disabled Crossfire in Global settings. Only 1 card has the option to disable it under Wattman-> Global Settings -> Global Graphics.
BTW, my second card now no longer goes into standby mode (little green light by the GPUtach) either.

I hope this helps other folks out as well.

yup bad idea don't use Cross fire mining it just won't work right . those cards need to stay stand a lone and not share like Cross fire does when mining .
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Scrypt ASIC Miner Wolf Review 1 / 2 GH/s on: September 29, 2017, 04:47:04 AM

I bet that bad boy is gonna cost close to 10k and never reach ROI .....the good point is

it's by  Ehsminer, a France-based company in the free world,we need more of that to drive down the costs of miners from China and hope those company's in the free world stay legit .

we all remember about two years ago the rush of gear and Price drops and must of it was a Scam or turned into one later on .
19  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: !!!WARNING - BITMAIN LEAVING PAYING CUSTOMERS OUT TO DRY!!! on: September 28, 2017, 09:58:20 AM
It seems that BITMAIN support does not exist any more. I wonder whether they dump all the miners and run away since Chinese Government is shutting down BTC trading. I don't believe Chinese Government will only shut down BTC trading and leave BITMAIN alone. Anyway just be cautious with your money. No wonder people are willing to pay more to buy from eBay, or, even from Amazon.

Is this really happening? The chinese government?

Is this really happening? The chinese government?

but next year Japan will Links ...

remember Japan is a free nation so f*** bitmain ..
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Looking for parts advice for my first mining operation! on: September 27, 2017, 05:54:20 AM
Monero was already dominated by botnets and now with browser javascript miner there's no way individual miners will be able to compete.

that's why I'm building 2 or 3 Servers with 4x 12 core cpu per server for CPU mining for fun.. parts for one will be here Friday it's all for fun. Plus i love building PC's .

I found a updated list of coins that are mined best with cpu's gonna Do it for the hell of it and i got nothing better to do.
