 1 Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Segwit and the fork on: June 21, 2017, 08:18:09 PM Quote from: cryptogasm on June 21, 2017, 07:49:20 PMI'm sure some people will say that SegWit/BU must be activated hard way even with risks chain split, community split, price crash or other else.I also think that we might have to think that option, especially if tx fee become very high, there's altcoin which have at least 50% of bitcoin market cap or when the community tired with drama.I wouldn't mine too much, as I recently wanted to pay something rather small in Bitcoin and was discouraged by the insane fees and I really think something must be done about this, or some altcoin will take over at some point.But an advance notice would be nice: I have some bitcoins in trading platforms, and I'd prefer them to be in my wallet if and when a split happens...

So your Bitcoin will split into two parts maybe somehow.Are we sure it won't happen earlier though?Here I read "Activate the New York Consensus SegWit2 by July 31", does it mean the fork will happen on July 31 or that it can happen way earlier, considering SegWit2 already has 75% of blocks in the last 24h?

(I'd be interested in underclocking it)yes you can.Ah, silly me it's in the manual indeed:https://www.bitmaintech.com/files/download/AntMiner%20S9%20Installation%20Guide.pdfHowever they only indicate 550MHz / 600MHz / 650MHz. Are those the only options or could I enter, say, 333 MHz ?

 7 Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Bitcoin - endless pending transaction on: March 02, 2016, 09:47:35 AM Quote from: zsmith on February 26, 2016, 04:56:07 PMI also have a small mysterious pending transaction that does not seem to exist on the blockchain, since upgrading.I just upgraded I had the same issue with an accidental double-spend I made a while back. Somehow the client created the transaction I wanted to do twice, one went through and the other was marked as "error" in my transaction list... until this update which marked it as pending. Rescanning did the trick for me too.
 8 Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [1500 TH] p2pool: Decentralized, DoS-resistant, Hop-Proof pool on: January 20, 2016, 10:03:30 AM Quote from: nicklello on January 20, 2016, 09:47:28 AMDo you think a regularly-updated VM image would help promote pickup ?I'm thinking something pre-configured (with the exception of the bitcoin wallet and payment address which will be created once the VM starts)I don't think it's necessary to go this far. Some more details in the step-by-step instructions, so that they work without assuming the user's setup is 100% default would be enough.For instance, the instructions on http://p2pool.in/ might work for a user with a default setup (data folder for Bitcoin Core not modified) and who doesn't care about not knowing where the mined BTCs will arrive, but it's not enough for a user who moved around their data folder or wants to specify at the pool level the address where to receive BTCs. Also, it's not the case for me but maybe instructions to use a custom port (+/-IP) for Bitcoin RPC would be useful too.

And of course it failed.In the log I noticed:Code:Testing bitcoind RPC connection to 'http://127.0.0.1:8332/' with username ''So I went back and set rpcuser='' in bitcoin.confAnd I ran p2pool again this way:Code:run_p2pool.exe -a myrichwalletiwish youwishAnd still it didn't work. So I went back to a normal pool, because I have other things to do today.........
 11 Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Voting for block size increase proposals on: September 16, 2015, 05:46:48 PM Thanks, I got it now. I got confused because your interface at coinarchy.com doesn't allow copy/pasting the signed text without clicking some buttons first.  I hope many people vote: even if the decision isn't necessarily decided straight from the poll, that would at least help to have an overview of what the community prefers.
 12 Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Coalition For 8MB on: September 16, 2015, 01:34:17 PM Quote from: coalitionfor8mb on September 11, 2015, 11:24:54 AMAfter giving it a second thought, I think that "accelerated programmed 2-4-8" you mentioned might be the best way moving forward.[...]Smaller static limit (like 2MB) would necessitate having this discussion again fairly soon. In the constant debate about the issue we may begin melting the idea of the limit and instead achieve a diametrically opposite result (no limit at all).All things considered, the solution space has been reduced to a single static limit of 8MB with a gentle yet quick enough schedule to achieve it. QED In my experience, whenever you give away space and resources, they end up being fully consumed pretty fast even if things used to work with a small fraction of said space and resources before. Bitcoin works nice even with the current limit: I can still send fee-less transactions and they get processed usually in a few hours. Increasing to 2MB should be good enough for a while. I fear giving 8MB straight away would encourage people to just use up all that space immediately. A good rhythm could be to increase to 2MB, then when it seems not enough again, increase by 1 more MB, etc, etc. And hopefully before it gets totally out of hand we'll have a better way to handle the blockchain than trying to fit 5TB into the users' SSDs....

Awesome.No I think the problem is much more serious: I've been racing against the payout threshold since I registered (first no minimum, then I believe 0.00005000, then 0.001, now 0.01). I assume whenever I'll get close enough to 0.01 it will raise again. Feels like free users never get to catch the carrot while this lasts...
 19 Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Why Bitcoin crashed on: April 12, 2013, 06:09:03 AM Quote from: tclo on April 11, 2013, 11:16:04 PMYou can call it a "correction"....or a "table" or a "chair" or a "puppy dog" if you really want to, but that doesn't help with communicating with the rest of the world that considers a 75% drop in value in one day to be a CRASH....LOLAnd it doesn't matter if it goes to $300 by the end of the year, it still crashed the last couple of days... at least according to 99.9999% of the people out there. You have a right to believe otherwise if you want though (and redefine common terms).Well, compare the value with what it was a month before and let's see where the crash is. Maybe it crashed for day-traders, but for people who use BTC in the long run, it didn't.Quote from: BitcoinGirl325 on April 12, 2013, 01:03:55 AMNewest article from the same author:http://www.naturalnews.com/039880_bitcoin_bubble_panic_selling_accounts_frozen.htmlThis one is more damaging I think. Mtgox taking the market hostage, not cool.  20 Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: For me MtGox is Dead, where shoud I adquire Bitcoins? on: April 11, 2013, 09:51:49 PM I guess there's also http://bitcoin-otc.com/ , although I'm not really a big fan: many people here ask the mtgox price + some percentage for some reason, while IMO it should at worst be the same price, since it has no fees... Once there was even a guy who was like begging to sell about$15 worth of BTC, and when getting into the details he asked for a fee (additional to the PayPal fee). WTF, he's the asking party yet he wants to make profit. That's how ****ed up BTC-OTC seems to me. Haven't been there in a long while though. I still like how OpenPGP-ish it is, though.
