341  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: What hardware brought you ROI and some profit? on: March 19, 2015, 10:29:36 PM
I made profit with GPU too. ASICs are expensive and often used before they are shipped to you, if you are in EU or US you must pay customs and expect long delivery (20 days max), once you can't reach any ROI ASICs are useless, GPU can be easily sold or used in other ways (gaming anyone? Grin )

I hope I'm putting this in the right area, sorry if not.

I see tons of people selling bitcoins (partials) at 2x-3x normal going rates. Why is that?
Or better yet, why would anyone buy those??

Thanks.

Just some crook waiting for a noobs, that's it. Would never buy Bitcoins on eBay.

Blockchain.info here, never had issues, reliable and smooth.

Arbitrage. Buy on exchanges with low value, sell on exchanges with high value. The only risk here is the exchange pulling a mt.gox.

It doesn't work very good with bitcoins. First, bitcoin transaction confirmations on the network can take long time (up to one hour), and there are few exchanges that will be happy with just one confirmation (usually they require three or more), so the arbitrage opportunity may be lost, and instead of profit you actually may incur losses. Second, if you hold your money at an exchange (so as not to wait for deposits), you expose yourself to a higher risk of the exchange running away with your funds...

+1 arbitrage is not always good, too risky today (my opinion).

Windows 8 is more reliable than 7, and it's much faster especially with ssd disks, if you don't like the new start menu, you can go back with software like classic shell.

I took a while to study everything but now I can say I trust myself 100%.
347  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Turning off miners on: March 19, 2015, 02:36:00 PM
The difficulty increase combined with the price drop has me turning off another batch of miners. How about you?

I turned off my mining rigs in december 2014. Now I only mine altcoins at launch, with cloud mining.

how has that worked for you?  Sometimes I think about giving it a go with alts, then I remember how I threw away .25 BTC worth of mining power back in 2014 for a day on some 21 coin and I could never sell it for anything worthwhile. 

You should use a bot on altcoins announcements section, they are all potentially profitable if you start mining as soon as they are released. Then you can always sell on exchanges. Lots of coins today are immediately listed in sites like Yobit. For example, I'm keeping an eye on dragonsphere xdb now (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=986534), supported by manhattanmine and suprnova. For people like me who bought multi-gpu rigs a while ago it's a good chance to make profit.

Wallet looks good! As a Jr member I can invest now, will try bounties too!

The best way to keep your bitcoins safe is by using an offline wallet.

If you want a decent operating system, I'll advise you to use a free open-source one, check a few GNU/Linux distributions and see which one you like best.

+1, this is the best advice you can get

Hi guys i just wanna know is there any risk free way to invest bitcoins so they guaranteed grow
It doesn't matter if interest is low but just want to know if there is some place or site in which we invest bitcoins and our bitcoins are secured and we get guaranteed interest(doesn't matter if low)
please help i am newbie in this Smiley

No, investments are always a bit risky. But if you invest today buying BTC and secure them in a cold wallet, I believe price will rise in next years, if you look at the big picture.

352  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: Is a Bitcoin mining virus, more powerful than mining farms? on: March 17, 2015, 02:36:44 PM
For example a Bitcoin mining farm might have a few petahashes of mining power. Will a Bitcoin mining virus network have the same amount of power?

Depends on how good is the virus and how many machines you can infect. I think Bitcoin mining today is only for real, big players, unless you want to mine altcoins.

This is truly impressive, congrats!
Maybe someday I will post my little setup, lol

XCO seems to be rebounding well today.

I bought some XCO today, let's see how it goes!
356  Economy / Speculation / Re: Who has more than 50 BTC? on: March 17, 2015, 02:22:53 PM
Would you say more than 50 BTCs is "good to have"?

The more you have, the better Smiley
Sorry, I won't tell anybody how many BTCs I have Smiley
357  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: The next generation of mininghardware - Q1/Q2 2015 on: March 17, 2015, 02:20:35 PM
Hello!

I'd like to discuss and speculate with you about who is going to bring out the next generation of mininghardware, when, how fast it will be and so on..

What do you guys think?

Will 20nm be the "next big thing"?

Maybe a Bitmain S6 (still current generation-technology tho) already on its ways?
Which other manufacturers will still play the game?


Have fun!

I think we won't see real, relevant hardware improvements until 2016, also we must consider Bitcoin price in Jan 2016 to see how investors will react, this will stimulate production and real innovations. If Bitcoin price will skyrocket, ASIC technology will also speed up.
358  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: Please, I need help to start mining on: March 17, 2015, 02:14:12 PM
OP said this

I will buy an antminer s4 or similar.

so it's a total waste of money, but it's just my opinion.
359  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: Methods of getting free electricity on: March 17, 2015, 02:13:04 PM
If you want to manage a big mining farm, china is the best place. You don't even need to move the ASICs out of china border, and workers cost is low

As far as I know, this type of malware is injected through botnets, emails, cracked executables, and more. If you don't use proper protection for your computer it's easy to be infected. Malware comes to phones too, especially android. People download silly apps infecting their phones, if you have a rooted android phone it's even easier for hackers to enter.
