1  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: BITGILD.com - Bitcoin to Gold || LIVE CHARTS - BITCOIN TO GOLD || on: June 01, 2017, 02:08:43 PM
Hi, I have a question about the Lunar Goats.
Why are they available below spot gold price?  Is it a mistake (that won't be honored) or is it an offer?

It is quite a lot below spot too!  I haven't heard bad things about bitgild, so am very interested.

The Lunar Goats have been sold out for a long time. It says max. 5 per customer but you can't actually order one.
I don't know why they don't remove it.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Pools (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][POOL] Mining Pool Hub - Multipool. Multialgo, Auto Exchange to any coin. on: June 01, 2017, 09:23:19 AM
How to monitor my rigs remotely? I have a few rigs and I am not sure when they go office-line. I now use Teamviewer to login in and check them ever few hours. But this is not practical as 90% of the time the rig hangs when TV starts.
 
If I was mining to one pool with one algorithm I could turn on monitoring on the pool. But as I am now using MultiPoolMiner the miner also switches.
So I can not have mining pool hub pools send me an email every time one of the rigs switches to the new miner/algorithm.

Some of the miners do provide an API. Such as Clymore I can monitor each right from my phone. But not the others. any suggestions what web base monitoring i can run on the rigs to report the hash rate? I have looked at Miner Monitor but that also trys to do what MultiPoolMiner does but with fewer algorithms.



Imperfect ideas for local monitoring:

a) GPU temperature
Use a program that monitors GPU temperature and notifies you when it drops below X.
Downside: does not catch total system failures

b) PSU with a digital interface, such as the Corsair Professional series
Connect the PSU to a cheap single-board computer, such as the Raspberry Pi. Notify when wattage drops below X
Downside: needs Linux knowledge
Neat side-effect: You can maintain a log with exact power consumption stats.

I'm just getting started with mining and I will opt for the latter.

I also have 4 Ethereum transactions that were deducted from the pool's balance but never showed up on the blockchain.
It's been 8 hours. I assume MPH configured too low fees for the transactions.

Edit: All transaction went through eventually

Bitcoin has become nearly unusable yesterday when it hit over 200000 unconfirmed transactions.

I suggest Megadice considers an altcoin like ETH or LTC as soon as the Lightning network is enabled.
Both ETH and LTC have faster TX and can be traded for fiat currency.

The timing for the re-branding is right, now that they have completed the modernization of their site, over the last few months, going from URL-based secrets to registered accounts with optional 2-FA.
But more importantly, many old articles referred to the SatoshiDice on-chain game which has been disabled for years. Users still got confused by it.

Good choices, all in all.

Bring the leader board back and the site will outshine SatoshiDice in its best days.

In the future, consider a 2nd currency with lower TX cost, like Ethereum or Litecoin, if the latter ever switches to SegWit and Lightning transactoins.
This will allow newbies to play with smaller amounts. Bitcoin TX fees are too high atm.

SatoshiDICE lowered the house edge to 0.9%.

Just went on the shitty slots, 40 wilds, 0.50 mbit win. RIGGED. Just avoid the scamming cunts. Vermin. Hope the owners fail in life. They deserve fuck all.

Also site is at a crawl. Admins are incompetent.  I have been with you for ages. You have changed the odds. I only went on to see and it has indeed got worse.

Why don't you just validate the hashes?

There's been some minor updates made to the website:

  • It is now more clear that winning one of the leader boards no longer gives a prize.

Do you plan to return this feature?
I enjoyed the competition.

No idea why this thread exists when its not the main thread for Satoshidice, it would be best for this thread to get locked because its annoying checking these 2 main threads.
It's explained in the first post.
The old thread has outdated information in the OP which can't be removed by the new owners.

Now the WEB interface is working for me but the API still down

The API works fine from here.

There's now two people who have had large sums stolen (~78 and ~48 bitcoin)

There's two people who claim to have had large sums stolen.
Fine but important difference.

The hot wallet is always empty.
always
Factually wrong.
11  Economy / Gambling / Re: SatoshiDICE.com - The World's Most Popular Bitcoin Game on: November 26, 2016, 02:01:24 AM
And any idea why daily prices on satoshidice are no more working from Oct 18? https://www.satoshidice.com/leader-boards/
That looks like they are running out of money, any ideas if satoshidice is a safe place for high stakes?

Not sure but maybe they lost a lot during the recent DDoS attack.
SatoshiDice is hosted with an expensive Swiss ISP.
Fending off even just 1 Gbit/s costs 400 USD / month ... O.o
Many DDoS attacks are magnitudes larger than that. The record is at over 1 Tbit/s.
https://solarcom.ch/en/ddos_protection

Why they choose this expensive host, I don't know. Maybe legal reasons because CH is not part of the EU.
12  Economy / Gambling / Re: SatoshiDICE.com - The World's Most Popular Bitcoin Game on: November 24, 2016, 03:15:45 PM
I did a cashout from satoshidice.com 3 days ago and transaction is still unconfirmed, any idea why? Will it be cancelled and I will lose my money?

BTW Satoshidice charged me 0.0001 BTC for withdraw but they included a very small fee. Did they do it on some purpose?

TX: https://tradeblock.com/bitcoin/tx/66c1c1fcb51249220c98aa35f4e7bdfe59e18c9b80333c7f1cc11ce4ce712c63

Most of the time the fee is enough but the Bitcoin mempool is very crowded right now.
Expect it in 24-48 hours.
13  Economy / Gambling / Re: SatoshiDICE.com - The World's Most Popular Bitcoin Game on: November 23, 2016, 10:54:11 PM
These delays are a result of the flooded Bitcoin network, not SatoshiDice per se, as previous posters have pointed out.

@lite- thanks for that.  But i just checked right now and the cash out came through 4 hours ago although it has zero confirms for whatever reason.  
Even though you asked for the TX id, I wouldn't have been able to give it to you cause once the screen at top processes the cash out with the txt id, it disappears right afterwards.  
You can find the TX id by searching for the recipient address on blockchain.info

The solution for SatoshiDice would be either
a) make the TX fee dynamic
b) let the withdrawing user choose the TX fee on their own

I have suggested this in the past
14  Economy / Gambling / Re: SatoshiDICE.com - The World's Most Popular Bitcoin Game on: November 22, 2016, 02:00:33 PM
My guess for a best case scenario is that they are burned out from fighting the recent DDoS attacks and said "fuck it", and took an unannounced vacation.

It would be a shame to just throw away a great brand like this.
15  Economy / Gambling / Re: SatoshiDICE.com - The World's Most Popular Bitcoin Game on: November 17, 2016, 02:55:52 PM
It's a pity they waste such a historic site with sub-par support.
There's really not much missing.

Major issues and wish list:
  • Refill the hot wallet more frequently
  • 2-factor authentication. I suggest RFC 6238 one-time passwords. That will work with many different authenticator apps.
  • Fix the leader board prizes

Minor wishes:
  • Rewrite the Flash-based slot game in JavaScript. Less and less users have Flash installed.
  • Optimize images to save bandwidth. The PNG images on the front page are 215978 bytes. They can be optimized losslessly to 85095 bytes.

... and the site would be almost perfect, in my opinion.
16  Economy / Gambling / Re: SatoshiDICE.com - The World's Most Popular Bitcoin Game on: November 15, 2016, 12:36:42 PM
The hot wallet has been empty for a while.
Leader board prizes still out of order.
Code:
The maximum available for withdrawal right now is 0.00176089 BTC.
17  Economy / Gambling / Re: SatoshiDICE.com - The World's Most Popular Bitcoin Game on: November 14, 2016, 01:51:04 PM
This site is very insecure. Angry Angry Angry Angry
This site does not have any security measures... Angry Angry Angry Angry Angry
False. The site protects your account with a password of your choice. Choose a good password and don't get hacked or infected with malware.
18  Economy / Gambling / Re: SatoshiDICE.com - The World's Most Popular Bitcoin Game on: November 10, 2016, 06:47:50 PM
The daily leader board prizes are still out of order.
19  Economy / Gambling / Re: SatoshiDICE.com - The World's Most Popular Bitcoin Game on: November 06, 2016, 04:08:27 PM
Site is back up, sorry about the downtime.

Same issue on API in win case !!!
Can you describe the steps to reproduce it?
20  Economy / Gambling / Re: SatoshiDICE.com - The World's Most Popular Bitcoin Game on: November 06, 2016, 01:02:30 AM
Hello Satoshi Dice

Ive sent 0.065 btc to the adress described on bitcointalk

But can't find the bet

TXD ID:81747d959b614b4f3e2d80bbc591cf91e393ab8ecc8218a07329cf1efa0edeac

When will this be resolved ?
Which address did you sent the coins to? as far as i know there's no satoshidice betting address here on bitcointalk, you get to deposit directly into your account at satoshidice.

It at the first page on the thread. Tried before a long time ago and it worked. but now im back and it dosent work.


Oh, that address! you might have to ask for help via email/pm (support@satoshidice.com), it's better if you create an account on satoshidice and play.

I already emailed them. But they dint respond

The blockchain betting game has been disabled a long time ago.
The first post in this thread is by the previous owner evoorhees who's not affiliated with SD anymore. I assume the current owners can't edit his post. It really should be updated.

I assume you will get your BTC back, if the current owners of SD still control the corresponding wallet.
