1  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [2000 TH] Slush's Pool (; TX FEES + VarDiff on: June 06, 2014, 11:08:50 AM

BFF miner is not seeing any of your hardware so you are not mining.  The new block detected means the network has resolved a block and we are all working on the next. And by we I mean the entire bit coin network.

Basically right now your are not mining with Bfg but monitoring the network. What ASIC are you trying to run?

Hope that helps.

Namnuta is absolutely right you are not mining and no hardware is listed in CGminer window.

Try this, in CGminer window type the letter "m" then the plus key "+" then "all" and hit return. it will refresh and list the hardware and info.

As far as I can tell, that would only work in BFGMiner. But there is indeed nothing mining.

Hey guys, great to read the positive feedback. We'll set up a page on this site soon.

And yes more to come, hopefully sooner than later. There's a lot in the pipeline, but we are not planning to burn our reputation on pre-orders. Especially not when you're not designing the ASIC chips. In the real world it's the company that bears the risk of losing money when not making their targets. In the Bitcoin mining world they pushed that risk onto the customer, which is not our style.

The furthest we're willing to go is to organise a group buy, to get the manufacturing price down through volume. But that doesn't mean we won't be able to fill the shop strategically.

We've been under the radar on purpose and we're just waiting for one more thing before we announce our business here. But seems you already found us Smiley

WTF? did me and my associate just give some swedes a 30,000USD+ interest free loan(3 Neptunes)Huh I mean, did I just pay for an idea "somebody will get to when they have time" after they are done using my money to erect a massive DC to mine their own BTC? I purchased 3 Rigs not a cloud mining service and im sure im not going to get any juice on the 30K Just figuring I made enough off of 3 Jupiters to hire my own PR, dinner and drinks would of been nice first! This thread is now officially the Anus of the internet!

Well take a look at the miner threads. BFL fucks us over again (well duhh), Bitmine official and unofficial threads are just as bad. Depressing times...
7  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Unofficial BITMINE CoinCraft series 28nm ASIC miners thread on: March 03, 2014, 12:30:52 PM
I think this was beyond their control, the reputation damage for the company is very bad. Plus Swiss law is quite strict, so once the refunds start coming to effect, it could very well kill the company in combination with the CPP (I know it's not much, but delays are also not that advantageous for them either).

It's always been a gamble and every mining company goes from hero to zero in no time for whatever reason.

So I hope for the best, and that they throw in something extra as compensation. And yes I invested my fair share as well. But no point in howling with the wolves. Live and learn.

We will be launching our own miners, we don't have the resources to develop our own chips, but we've got the expertise and sourced our chips. The ambition is to launch 5TH miners without pre-orders to wake up KnC. This pre-order nonsense has to stop and I want to let them know that they won't be king of the hill for long.

And secretely I hope they will just up their hashrate to beat us (they've got way more funds) so we all win.

I'm in the positive camp. They were labelled scammers from the start, but none of my KnCs didn't ROI. So the Neptune will be their last tour de force for consumers, I think their pride will not allow them to go down into Bitcoin history as scammers.
But it's just all speculation at this point.
10  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: The Bitcoin MINING PONZI SCHEME on: March 01, 2014, 02:19:00 PM
I don't think that it's a ponzi, it's more of an bubble and an abomination on the original idea behind bitcoin.
The original idea was to keep the bitcoin network spread out because everyone who has a computer, can be involved with mining bitcoin with their existing CPUs. That means that no additional resources need to be wasted to create machinery that supports the bitcoin network and only electricity is used. ASICs ruined the entire concept and actually started to reward those who contribute most to unnecessary wasting.

I agree completely


The idea should be not to build faster and faster hashrate, but to keep the hashrate down and the network spread out as much as possible. The network doesn't gain anything with increased hasrate, no speed, no security, no anything. People are just buying ASICs, so they could get a piece of the bitcoin hype pie, while actually not realizing that their ASICs contribute to absolutely nothing that could be considered relevant.

Again I don't see any advantage of an ever growing and centralising mining industry. The upside of the ASICs is that they cannot be used for anything but Bitcoin mining, so if we find an equilibrium, where it is unprofitable to run a professional and profitable mining operation (Server space is expensive and the cost of something going wrong, hiring extra personal etc. is very risky). So why would you turn off your ASICs then, as they cost you a lot of money, and will at some point stabilise until the next big thing comes along. So the upside is that thanks to ASICs, even if BTC prices drop for a while, the network will not die. And once there's a lot of money involved in this industry, they will also do everything in their power to keep Bitcoin alive.

Not to say that I lost a lot of money on batch #3 Avalons, but made a good deal more than ROI with my KnC Jupiterss (I must've been very lucky if I read all the negativity).

First of all we need to get rid of this pre-order nonsense. An ordinary company seeks investors, works unbearable hours as not to dilute to the investors, and brings a product onto the market directly for sale. That's how Bitmain operates and that's why I think they're one of the few with still a good reputation. I never went below ROI on a Bitmain, as I could calculate with less error margin when I would ROI and what my expected profit would be.


Scrypt is better, because it uses the existing GPUs and therefor no new hardware has to be created to chase a worthless goal. Primecoin is also very interesting because it can still be run only by CPU. A lot of people who aren't into gaming don't have good GPUs for other uses, but everyone has a decent enough CPU, and so it's easier to keep the network more spread out. But the price isn't currently set by how good is the quality of the coin, but hype is the thing that sets the price. And Bitcoin has almost all the hype.

I disagree on several points.
- If I recall correctly, scrypt was intended to be GPU proof as well. But correct me if am wrong.
- Scrypt ASICs are hitting the markets, and are in my opinion a bad investment for those just a little late to the party, since the developers of the scrypt coins one of their ambitions was to keep ASICs out, and so I think is the reasoning of most miners. Also the difference in hash rate is not spectacular, just the power consumption. So if majority chooses to alter the algorithm, your scrypt ASIC miner is worthless.
- Bitcoin introduced lots of innovation and solved the problem of making digital items scarce, through the use of a public ledger. It was the first to market and revolutionary. Other coins might be better, I certainly hope so after all those years, but they evolutionary.
- It's all about market cap and money, why would any business switch to a coin with a lower market cap. A 5 year hype is a feat by itself, I honestly think it's more than that.

But from a miner's point of view, I agree GPUs were fantastic, you could sell the hardware and upgrade with minimal loss, since it has other purposes. The companies behind them are mature enough to ship massive quantities and the mining sector comprised only a small part of the use case. Just trying to look at it from many angles, and not intending to disagree with you totally.

im watching this thread for 8 weeks now. bitmine's missleading information policy and the fact that they are selling systems on their website to today, is telling me that this company is suspect.
emails and phonecalls about productionstate, later refund, are unanswered. phrases like 'next week' or 'im not the person who can handle your request' (refund) are given numeous times.

fortunately im living in switzerland. a few minutes ago, i was able to start the process of 'Betreibung'. This means, im using swiss laws, to get my money back.

im very sad about this all, but something has to happen now.

Keep us updated on how that works out. Isn't this the same law for all EU countries? In principle you have 2 weeks to return a product with full refund if you're not satisfied. Imagine everybody doing that after mining for 2 weeks and then returning their units.

You don't need to reboot to change your pool settings.
Just be patient enough when you set the pool configuration and click submit and apply, that the messages that it is updating your /etc/config/miner.conf or something are gone before you switch windows. It's a long shot, but happened to me as well in frustration.

Second option is ssh into the miner and configure the pool settings yourself in /etc/config/miner.conf

But there could a whole lot wrong, so as the poster above mentioned, show us your settings, maybe it's just a small mistake.

I have been in touch with the CEO and he seemed a reputable guy. Since Belgium's power costs are pretty high and he also suffered from the delays, I don't think he intended to scam anyone. The pressure to run his operation must be enormous. He delivered on a promise to me, even though it wasn't an easy one. But it's been months, so I wonder how he's doing.

So not to vouch for him, but throwing in a positive experience with them. Don't know what happened all those months.
