Check under Device Management in Windows and make sure the GekkoScience 2PAK is showing up all the way at the bottom as a Universal USB Device (something named along those lines.)

You need to make sure that the GekkoScience 2PAK is not accidentally being read as a COM Port Device by Windows.  If you see a COM Port Device that appears to be your GekkoScience 2PAK, simply click the listed Device and uninstall it, then use Zadig again.  Unplug and replug in the USB miner and keep checking that it is actually labeled as a Universal USB Device, which Zadig effectively makes the system read it as rather than a COM Port.

Personally I prefer cloudmining, also looking at some of the environmental impacts of just hashing away without knowing what you

Please do not recommend Cloud Mining to newcomers.  You will almost certainly lose more than you invest as the difficulty increases and electricity costs/management costs/additional fees they charge will only lead to profit for those doing the mining - not the people buying Cloud Mining.

Just a waste of the energy used if you do not optimize it. There are some green electricity cloud mining companies out there; and in my opinion personal miners should also be responsible with their usage.

I have yet to come across a 'real' green-energy mining operation that wasn't entirely private.  They have absolutely no incentive to offer REAL Cloud Mining contracts.  If they are using excess energy from solar power, then they are STILL running mining equipment.

There is no such thing as 'green' SHA-256 (e.g., Bitcoin) because the entire concept of Bitcoin is based upon Proof-of-Work.  Energy must be expended in some form, whether that is CPU's, GPU's, ASIC's, otherwise hashing cannot occur.

we still far away of the average 0.30$ we had most of the year
so i guess this rise just have started

waiting for the signal to buy back in / or stock up?

this might be it

Once the mobile DMD wallet is available, basically you could just use open-source breadWallet for iOS, I expect the coin to actually grab much more attention.

While it wouldn't stake, all users would need to do is - once the time is right- transfer their DMD to their main wallets receive their stake reward and either continue staking or simply send them back to their mobile wallet for day to day trading.

I know the plan for mobile wallets is Diamond 3.0, I just wanted to point out that most of the work had already been done and is available open-source.  Without a mobile version trading in person is very very cumbersome using paper wallets - as I have personally experienced.

Keep up the good work!

I may be willing to bite on some of your S3's if you'd be willing to sell them in sets of 2/4/6 for a discounted percentage, his way you also reduce shipping price.

I may also be able to simply buy my own shipping labels and send them to you becaus said of own business negotiated rates.

I could also use spare parts to tinker around and repair old units with.

What's a shipping quote to Washington, D.C.?

This way I can compare it to my own business rates with all the various shipping companies I negotiated, and perhaps I can send you a shipping label.

Not a large CBX holder myself, but I can say I've sold just shy of 400 Bitcoin/Scryot/Mining accessories online which all included the CBX Promo Cards in English/Spanish (since I'm US-based.)

Hopefully it's helping not only promote CBX but the Cryptocurrency environment in general Smiley

Best of luck to everyone and happy trading!

All the best,

You say I got burned? When and how? (trading wise)

Also, you have to understand something, unlike most people that do not follow TA, traders following some form of proper TA (not EW IMHO) can't get REKT if they do things properly:

1) Stop loss
2) No margin or small leverage

Like I said, risk management..

Just be careful with "stop losses" in illiquid or very small cap. markets.  We even recently saw a 220 BTC to USD "market" sell order on Coinbase/GDAX crash the price temporarily from $656 to $468.  And that's Bitcoin we're talking about.

No comments on XEM itself, just saying be careful when recommending trading techniques designed for more experienced users without explaining the pros & cons of such methods.

Happy trading, everyone!
11  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: Mining after Halving 2016 on: June 19, 2016, 10:51:32 AM
I'm afraid that halving will make miners increase the bitcoin transaction fees, which might not be nice.
i had been talking about increasing the maximum limit of bitcoin supply limit, however due to its value, it is not possible to address this kind of problem. miner fee increase is the only method to encourage miners, and bitcoin core is doubling the limit around 2017.

You're using the word "limit" when what you intend to be saying is "block size limit."

Someone gave me 3 free S4. Should I put them to use or just sell them?

Both Smiley
13  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Community Miner Design Discussion on: March 25, 2016, 03:22:53 PM
Figured it was worth asking as i have a few s5s laying around and have seen a few older stock going for insanely low prices cus they are only 1/2 hashing or somehow damaged on the boards. wanted to snatch up a few before you released your hardware and they were snapped up by everyone here.

wouldnt mind grabbing a c1 to play with. wonder if the old water cooler could keep up with the heat from new chips.

I just picked up a guys mini-farm of C1's, and boy am I glad I did now.  Parting a couple of them paid for themselves, fixed my other older tech and started slapping on water blocks to everything, haha.  I have 4-6 extra not running at the moment if you're interested, just PM me.

The idea of upgrading the blades in the C1's is beautiful.  I use a singular 720*1080 radiator for my dual S5 water cooled unit, so I really see no issue using a similar style to this with the C1 but simply adding a little more radiator space, or even simply equipping a push-pull fan system per 360*180 radiator.

Please make this work... lol I have a shed of S1's that I'm too lazy to upgrade the blades.
15  Bitcoin / Mining support / Re: [BOUNTY] - .1 Bitcoin to the first person to solve this on: March 13, 2016, 07:55:32 PM
I have some Avalon 6 pointed at Nicehash, and I cannot get extra nonce subscription to work for the life of me.

First person to give me the right solution to make it happen gets .1 BTC!

You need to download the nicehash stratum proxy and run it on one of your computers, and then you will point your miners to it instead. This will give you the extra nonce sub.

The guide is here with the download links.

Direct link;

Did he keep his word and pay the 0.1 BTC bounty to you?  Just curious.

If you don't like living in a Dictatorship, don't own DASH.

Is that a simple enough truth for you?

Haha, thank you.  You officially made my morning.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: POLL - Which crypto do you feel is the biggest "scam"? - BE HONEST PLEASE on: March 09, 2016, 02:08:24 PM
Sorry, let me clarify.

DASH is no longer a scam because we all know now that its governance model is a Dictatorship.

DASH was a scam before this occurred, when it started out as a "Hashocracy/Meritocracy" hybrid.

Yes, like many political systems that start out with certain "ocracy" good intentions they have a slimy way of being corrupted over time (power corrupts weak minds), which is exactly what occurred here with DASH.  Until Evan pulled the scam, this coin was indeed scam free.  And now that the public knows the truth (that Evan is simply a Dictator), then it is no longer a scam.

TLDR:  If I'm telling you that I am a liar, and I lie to you, then I made no misrepresentation.  Since Evan is showing us that he is a dictator, we cannot claim that we did not see it coming when he changes the politics of his community on a whim.


A dictator is not a liar (scammer), he just has the power to get away with lying to you


Oh lordie, there is certainly an XKCD comic regarding this cluster-fuck of an attempt to portray understanding.

Personally I think "anonymity" may be an unhealthy distraction for this coin.  As many have already stated before me, there are too many coins that attempt this.  CBX should stick with what it's good at, PoSP.

Focus on being amazing at one task and I believe PoSP is the most unique feature of CBX.  Build volume, such as using Promotion Cards package with eCommerce sales or other forms of advertising.  The devs were nice enough to mail me a package of Promotion Cards which I include with all my electronic sales on Amazon, eBay, Bitify, Craigslist, LetGo, WallaPop, etc.

It makes my customers happy to receive free crypto and it's a great way to gain interest, especially for newcomers to crypto - which there are quite a few with Bitcoin surpassing $400 over the past few months.

Just my two cents and personal experience as a small business with a handful of employees.

If the fee was not high enough it can take a long time or it will return to your wallet in 1-4 days i guess

I choose not to use 0.12.0 but if he sent it with that client it will eventually timeout.  I forget the exact time it will take to clear from the nodes mempool but I believe it's 3-4 days. 
20  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Unconfirmed transactions on: March 01, 2016, 08:41:32 AM
Seems so, heard someone is also attacking the Bitcoin nodes, might be related. Although the discussion about the attck on nodes was mostly FUD about Classic and the core debate anyway

I'm running Core and Classic on two different IP's and I can confirm I was DDoS'ed on my Classic node.  I have since moved both to Cloudflare protected servers just in case Classic attempts to retaliate against my Core node or Core continues to DDoS my Classic node.

Of course I don't know who's doing it, I'm only using "Core" & "Classic" as generalities.

All I care about is DDoS'ing sucks and it's childish.  I don't care about beliefs when my servers are being attacked by anyone.  I try to stay neutral by running both.  I firmly believe that competition is healthy for Bitcoin as a whole.

Yes it is strange. Now it`s 16 Hours. Still nothing changed. My fees are maybe also a little bit low after all what i read here now. But, anyway, i just sent three days before nearly the same amount with exactly the same fees and there was no problems. If bitcoin now demands high fees to make a simple transaction i see no point anymore to use it. Any bank transfer is FASTER and CHEAPER. I'm not a crypto nerd, i just a normal user. If i need now a master degree in computer science to make a transaction (i`m so rid off all this BS what i googled today for making stucking transactions work - but nothing of this tips worked for me!!) than I'm absolutly done with this crap now. The big difference is, if it would be a bank transfer i could make somebody responsible for this, and yes oh yeah, i would take already my phone and would unload all my frustration to the bank employee until i would know where my money is gone! I cannot believe my over 400 Dollars are now in the crypto heaven, somewhere lost in the WWW! I NEED this money now and not in 4 Days! Of Course it's fine if i get it back in 4 Days, but i don`t now what the BTC exchange rate may be than, cause it's always volatil. And if the network have too much of this problems now like i read everywhere in the internet now, maybe the exchange rate goes to zero cause everybody is done with this playmoney here! Omg i `m so pissed of!  Angry
Just double-spend it. Bad luck if you used one of the "online wallets" though

I switch off between BreadWallet and Blockchain for my iPad when I'm on the go.  I've never had problems with either.  It's probably because I never send less that ~1 BTC or more per transaction from a single output with high fees ~55-70 sats per byte.
