1  Economy / Exchanges / Mtgox payouts choice on: January 01, 2023, 11:43:54 AM
Hi folks,

Is there anyone here that can shed some light on the Mtgox payout options?

I must say that I don't understand them...


Proportional Repayment Amount
Regarding the balance remaining after the Base Repayment Amount in 2.(1) above is deducted from the allowed rehabilitation claims amount in 1.(2) above, you can receive proportional repayment in the form of either (a) Intermediate Repayments and Final Repayment or (b) Early Lump-Sum Repayment according to your selection. Please note that if you do not select either (a) Intermediate Repayments and Final Repayment or (b) Early Lump-Sum Repayment, pursuant to the Rehabilitation Plan, it will be deemed that you selected (a).
You can toggle between displays of the repayment amounts for (a) Intermediate Repayments and Final Repayment and (b) Early Lump-Sum Repayment by clicking on the tabs below.
If you select Intermediate Repayments and Final Repayment
As an Intermediate Repayment, you will receive repayment based on an Intermediate Repayments rate of 6% at the same time as the Base Repayment, and you will receive the remaining portion of the proportional repayment as the Final Repayment after it is determined whether or not all dispute claims of all rehabilitation creditors actually exist and the amount of such claims, and after the Rehabilitation Trustee completes the conversion of all non-converted assets of the rehabilitation debtor that the Rehabilitation Trustee determines to be appropriate for conversion. (Please note that in some cases, multiple Intermediate Repayments may be made prior to the Final Repayment, but there are no such plans currently.) Please note that the intermediate repayments are the advance payment of a portion of the Final Repayment. For example, if the Final Repayment rate is 23%, because 6% will have already been paid as the intermediate repayment, in the Final Repayment, the difference between these figures, i.e. 17%, will be paid.
The timing and repayment rate for the Final Repayment will be decided depending on the time when the claims determination proceedings (assessment procedures and opposition litigation) for all disputed creditors are completed, the particulars of the disputed claims determined through the claims determination proceedings, and any changes going forward in the value of Rehabilitation Debtor’s property, and thus at the present time the timing and repayment rate for the Final Repayment are undetermined. However, on the screen that appears when you click on the “(a) Intermediate Repayments and Final Repayment” tab, you can run a simulation of changes in the Final Repayment amount that might be paid to you depending on the amount of your disputed claims that are determined. Please note that there is no guarantee of repayment of the amount appearing in the simulation, which merely displays, for reference purposes, a rough estimate of the Final Repayment amount.
If you select (b) Early Lump-Sum Repayment, you will receive repayment based on the 21% Early Lump-Sum Repayment rate at the same time as the Base Repayment, and repayments to you in principle will end with that. You will not be eligible to receive the Intermediate Repayments or Final Repayment.
The BTC Claim/BCH Claim amounts indicated below are the amounts that will be the basis for calculation of the repayment amounts to rehabilitation creditors; the amounts indicated here are not the amounts that will actually be paid to you. If you have BTC Claims/BCH Claims, after making a selection on this screen for proportional repayment, you will be taken to a screen for selecting BTC Claims/BCH Claims repayment method. See the explanation there as well for details.


The choices are:

A. Intermediate Repayments and Final Repayment
B. Early Lump-Sum Repayment

Choice B is a much larger amount. Why would anyone choose A?

If used with Scatter, the site tries to sign several contracts.

I found that some of the addresses involved pop up when I search for scams + EOS.

Thanks for all the replies!

Hi all,

I'm new to EOS, but I bought some in the past.
Now I come accross this site:

https://get-eos.com/eos-reallocation/

I have profited from airdrops in the past, but... is this safe? I read a lot about get-eos.io which was a scam, but not about this site.

It says:

Claiming tokens for xxxxx. Due to the network congestion please allow up to 1 min for the transaction to appear.

Your account is eligible to claim x.9040 EOS. Please sign the request.

I'm suspicious....
Anyone?

What is a legit EOS site?

Bravo, very eloquently explained! I got goosebumps Smiley

Selling via Ebay could also be an option. AFAIK prices are often higher there.

Why would anyone buy a physical bitcoin in the first place?

To brag about to your friends --- be careful though, you might lose them, especially when prices follow the trajectory foretold by John McAfee
To make hodling easier (yes - I would probably have spent it if it weren't a physical bitcoin)
Because you don't have one
Because you want to show it to your grandchildren "granddad owns a Real Casascius Bitcoin!"
Because you are a coin collector

Any other reasons?

Interesting replies, thank you all Smiley
Basically the views are varied. Some people think personal delivery is the way to go, others think using a courier service is better.
In that case it should be combined with some kind of escrow service.

As I have seen, a 1 BTC Casascius coin is worth more than 1.4 BTC so that is already more than 10.000 euros.
So I would not take any risk. Is there any regular mailing service with an insurance for that kind of money?

And it is true, personal delivery carries a certain risk too.
Meeting in a police station - an original idea Smiley
7  Economy / Collectibles / How to sell a Casascius coin in The Netherlands (or Europe) on: May 29, 2019, 07:32:01 AM
From what I've seen in this section, most sellers and buyers are located in the USA.

Are there any people here interested in buying a 1 BTC Casascius coin from Europe?

(Specifically, The Netherlands, Belgium or parts of Germany, maybe France or the UK if the price is good.)

Shipping an item that valuable via postal services does not seem a great idea.
So, as some suggestions go, personally delivering the item would be the best option.
How would this go about?

Meeting at an airport restaurant and making the transfer there, using an app?
I'm just wondering how other people do this Smiley

I am not a newbie, but I haven't been very active here lately. I do not know any other (prominent) forum members personally either, but serious buyers would receive more personal information.

For Linux, you must compile following the instructions here.

I did.

Fetch-params just did not work.

Please comment to that.

Ah i see: https://github.com/BTCPrivate/BitcoinPrivate/blob/master/btcputil/fetch-params.sh
Updated 5 hours ago. I installed the wallet 10 hours ago. Must be different (and working hopefully) now.

There is no Windows wallet as of yet, so i installed the Linux BTCP wallet from github:


https://github.com/BTCPrivate/BitcoinPrivate

One of the last steps is this:

# Fetch Zcash ceremony keys
./btcputil/fetch-params.sh

This script will fetch the Bitcoin Private (and Zcash) zkSNARK parameters, and verify
their integrity with sha256sum. These parameters are identical to those for
both Zclassic and Zcash.

If they already exist locally, it will exit now and do nothing else.

So that does not work...
I have ZCL installed but I'm not sure those keys are identical.

Good one. Am awaiting the hard fork. Are we to leave our coin on exchanges.
I guess that's not wise.

By the way, the download link for the Windows Binary is broken here: https://stronghands.github.io/.
These are the right download links afaik:


Windows: https://github.com/bumbacoin/stronghands-012x/releases/download/v0124/stronghands-win32-v0124.zip

My guess is this belongs in the Altcoins section.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: WHAT WILL DASH DIFFICULTY BE NOVEMBER 2017 on: September 06, 2017, 07:49:17 PM
Hash rate is now already at more than 32 TH/s - doubled in 1 month. Reward with 1 Antminer D3 down from c. 160 to c. 120 USD per day. Still that's around 12-15 days payback time (depending on the price of energy, shipping costs and taxes).

(I see Antminer D3's at double the buying price - and that's for the (end of) October batch.)

If hash rates double again this month and again in October, rewards might be just about 30 USD per day. If prices do not increase.

Any thoughts?

16  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [Work in progess] Burnins Avalon Chip to mining board service on: October 22, 2013, 06:55:15 AM

You can find this:   The next value is the number of miners, this must be the number of boards in cluster multiplied by 2
So if you have 2 bitburners, you have to choose the number 4:

--avalon-options 115200:4:10:35:380 --avalon-auto  --queue 4 --bitburner-voltage 1285


No, it must be --avalon-options 115200:2:10:35:380 --avalon-auto  --queue 4 --bitburner-voltage 1285

Cgminer sees every board apart when it has an usb cable. The "total boards x2" number only applies when they are in a cluster (i.e. with canbus cable). Without it, it's just "2". (I think that is because a board originally had 10 chips on it.)
17  Bitcoin / Group buys / Re: [Group Buy] Avalon ASIC Chips (SebastianJu) Batch 6 ordered (Closed) on: October 16, 2013, 08:25:29 PM
I'm interested to see what difference it makes.
Has anyone tried with and without update?

If there is no real advantage, I'll keep the shipped fw version.
18  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [Work in progess] Burnins Avalon Chip to mining board service on: October 13, 2013, 09:45:18 AM
I was in SebastianJu's batch 4. Got my Bitburners last week. (All batches together formed just one batch of chips.) I can confirm they run without firmware update. Still: would there be an advantage to upgrade the firmware (Burnin!)?
19  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [Work in progess] Burnins Avalon Chip to mining board service on: October 10, 2013, 01:29:20 PM
Anybody knows what is a safe voltage (--bitburner-voltage option)?

These options give about 22 GH/s per 3 miners:

cgminer-nogpu.exe --avalon-options 115200:6:10:32:400 --queue 4

I tried --avalon-options 115200:6:10:28.8:440 but this was slower. I did not try overvolting.
20  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [Work in progess] Burnins Avalon Chip to mining board service on: October 10, 2013, 11:17:58 AM
Yes, I found it there. Still I think it should be on the product page. It took me half an hour to find it. Valuable mining time! Smiley
