Can I use this miner with R9 390 for CNV8 mining?

the ethereum price in the future can reach the price of $ 5,000?

It might happen in 2 to 5 years.

I think that there are much bigger existing whales on current market than Soros. I'm sure that he will invest less than 1% of his total money in crypto.

That is right. The Soros fund is not enough to buy up the Bitcoin or the Bitcoin Cash. Both price are not rising.

During the period the exchange rate of cryptos decreases, if you are investing in Bitcoin and ETH then hold and wait until the exchange rate increases again. If you hold the other altcoins, then the advice is to exchange from altcoins to USDT and keep until the market rebounds back in March. At these dip times, you need to calm and resolve.

That is what I am doing. I hold all the coins I mined at present. I think the price could double or triple in 12 months.

Now btc looks more stable at around $5500. Im thinking now btc will move to altcoins. And one of the first one will be the eth. My target is 0.1 btc per ether. Which we already saw couple months ago.

that is right. The ETH has risen over the last few days.

This is not the Difficulty Bomb. It is just because of too many Miners right now

Difficulty Bomb will come by End of Sept with the Metropolis update for ETH

I think it is the Difficulty Bomb as it comes out suddenly. the mining difficulty will rise gradually.

Any ETH faucets?  I need some free cash

There isn't any which gives significant amount of ETH. If you want to solve hundreds of captchas just for 2-3 cents worth ETH then you can find those faucets in Google search. I don't recommend using any of that though, you waste your precious time.

It depends on the price of the time.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Looking like the ZEC party is over on: December 20, 2016, 11:26:15 AM
mining zec until jan 27th 2017.

thats is my birthday  and I will sell off my 20-30 coins then

you lost quite a bit phil, if you indeed held those coin until now, they were at a much higher price before

zcash can not return to its glory price, there is simply too much supply per day involved, too much for the buyers

30 ZEC is just about $1000. So it is a risk worth taking.

JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM) has announced that it is experimenting with using the architecture of the ethereum blockchain to create novel financial solutions for itself and its customers. According to media source Coindesk, the project was unveiled last month, and was more recently demonstrated during an industry convention in Geneva. This follows other blockchain-related announcements from competitors such as Bank of America Corp (BAC)—which is partnering with Microsoft (MSFT) and UBS Group Inc. (UBS)—in collaboration with International Business Machine Corp (IBM). (For more, see: Bitcoin Vs Ethereum: Driven by Different Purposes.)

JP Morgan's Ethereum Implementation
JP Morgan is using a private (non-public) iteration of the smart-contract focused ethereum protocol, in a system it is calling Quorum. It was developed in partnership with blockchain startup EthLab, and it is one of the first projects to come out of an innovation lab within JP Morgan known as the Blockchain Center of Excellence. Of course, the bank will keep much of Quorum's intellectual property to itself, but it is creating a developer's kit (SDK) to allow outside programmers the chance to build off of the platform. They also plan to bring other financial firms into the fold. Amber Baldet, program lead for the Quorum division, explained, "while our current applications using Quorum function within JP Morgan, releasing the software is an important stepping stone to launching projects with other organizations."

Quorum is now the second major blockchain offering to come out of JP Morgan. Earlier this year, the bank showcased a platform called Juno, meant to be a "distributed crypto-ledger" to enable quick value transfers between network parties. Quorum is novel in that by using ethereum as a backbone, it can add logic and scripting to its platform via smart contracts. Smart contracts are decentralized, self-executing pieces of code that do not need the mediation of a third-party—such as a stock exchange, legal system or government regulator. This may help the bank and its partners cut down on administrative costs, legal and regulatory oversight, and increase transparency. (For related reading, see: Blockchain Technology To Revolutionize Traditional Banking.)

The Bottom Line
JP Morgan has announced its second entrant into the blockchain fray, this time utilizing the smart contract enabled ethereum blockchain in creating a system called Quorum. Meant to lead to further collaboration, the company is allowing outside developers to tinker with it via an SDK as well as seeking partners from within the financial sector.

You cannot say exact date because it depends on DAG size... and.. dev team decision.. and.. hardfork vote Cheesy

When the next scheduled fork occurs, developers may improve Ethereum block find times again.

This would increase daily mining payouts and simultaneously bring the POW stage too a finish earlier.

Alternatively, at the next scheduled fork, developers may decrease Ethereum block find times.

This would decrease daily mining payouts and simultaneously delay the end of POW stage.

But, it is best to leave this kind of fine tuning too the developers  Smiley  

If they decrease the block time from 14 s to 10 s, that means the miners will get 50% coins in the same time.

Devcon2 update, plus explanation of last night's attack on Ethereum.

Ethereum was not attacked, only the fork was in trouble.

Parity is rock solid, kept the network alive during a major crisis (especially given the timing) and prevented a panic.

The Geth developers are nothing less than unreal. The time it took them to respond and deliver couldn't be matched even by the likes of google or apple.

Also a big shout out to all of us, the community for keeping our calm and actually being helpful by not panicking, by switching to a working client and by not putting extra pressure to the shoulders of the developers.

I think most non-devs don't get how extraordinary it is to have such a fast and committed response from devs.

This is what sets Ethereum apart in my mind. Yes, it is open source, but it also has professional and committed visionaries behind it.

Thanks for the love from Shanghai, we love you back.

Buy support is terrible for a coin with this size market cap is this the end of the good times?
Yep, there is no fresh money flowing into the eth fork and reserves of the die hard forkers are rapidly dwindling.

The market cap of the Etherum is still rising. It is higher than a few weeks ago. So there is some fresh money.

The Chinese will assume it, just like bitcoin. You ain't seen nothin' yet.

You have created a solution for a problem that does not exist!

That is right. Although the Chinese are the biggest miner for the Ethereum at the moment, they do not own most of the coins.

Your last comment actually is SO dumb and disgusting it proves pretty well What an ignorant,  dumb and disgusting Person you are. 

Whenever there is a chance of saving Any Human life OF COURSE YOU SHALL SAVE IT -  there is no Discussion necessary at all for such a question,  regardless of other unknown things that MAY happen.

We are not talking about Human life here but of a flaw,  an error in a Piece of  code that was exploited by some individuals without of the consensus or without the approval of the majority.

Imagine a Bank that gets robbed and afterwards you are suing the Bank for getting robbed and not the robbers because they did such a decent Job and did Not get caught  (at first)...

Other coins implement voting Features so that Similar happenings can be circumvented by the majority..  The miners or HODLers Wink

I agree with the comments. I will vote for any methods to get the money back from the hacker, that is the principle.

So far, there is no great rally. The price is trading within a tight range. The whales are still accumulating.

That is very risky mate. You never know what the value will be with Bitcoin. And that is not good.
I hope for you that you are lucky and that you can have some a lot of profit with it and that you will be rich. But we will see for what is going to happen.

Its risky but the whole bitcoin itself is risky if you ask me, I think its pretty cool if you do this, you are really have made a sacrifice for the bitcoin.
I think and hope you will make a lot of profit in the future but it will be rough time.

Its cool indeed, but I do not know if its worth the risk, its a house you are talking about and this can really be a problem later if the bitcoin will be much lower at the end.
I hope it will let him make profit but there is still a chance that there will happen the opposite and lose a lot of money because of it.

If it has exponential growth, it also can be reverse as well.

But all the signs are there to be bullish, but its better to not risk the house and be homeless lol. Based on what youre talking on valuation.

I rather avoid that situation to be in.

If he sold his house and bought the bitcoin last August, he could be rich now. He would be even richer after August this year.
16  Economy / Speculation / Re: I'm All In - Sold My House! on: March 11, 2016, 10:30:02 AM
I hope you will make a lot of bitcoin, not just the fiat from the action. The house price will not rise as fast as the bitcoin.
