Not really, I asked to reset 2FA and was forced to wait 3 weeks (even tho in the middle the event happened)

And now they have stopped replying, effectivelly locking me out of my account.

Does anyone know of another way to contact them ?

Contact dooglus on these forums. Failing 2FA is your fault, and not theirs.

That doesn't mean they can just take his coins, however.

They didn't take his coins. He just can't access them because of his own fault. The coins are still there.

I honestly don't know anything bad about ghash.io and cex.io. I used to use them and they seemed fine, I liked their website, their support was good. Aren't they taking measures to stop a 51% attack? Aren't they telling some users to use other pools? What real bad things have they done, that can be proven. I'm not trying to advertise ghash.io or anything but I want to know why they are so bad?

They double spent against BetCoin dice
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=327767.0

They basically did nothing to prevent 51% and they reached it. Their measure now is to spam messages all over the net telling miners to leave, but not taking any actual measures like preventing new connections or increasing fees.
I've seen that betcoin thing before, I assume that was an employee acting on his own part. They are not exactly going to not let people still use their pool, why would they do that. They are discouraging people from joining, but really thats all they can do without forcing people to leave. I just don't see why everyone hates on them, other than being scared of the 51% attack.

We're not scared. It's simply because they are a bunch of irresponsible and lazy crooks.
Yeah, it was an employee, according to them. They can say what they want.
No one said not let people use their pool, denying new connections is stop new miners from connecting. It's a simple method. They wouldn't be forcing people to leave.
Increasing fees is more of a way of discouraging people to use their pool, and not send out stupid messages. They can do something similar to BTCGuild.
907  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: 51% Attack - Why isn't anything being done about it? on: July 24, 2014, 02:22:41 AM
This threat seems very, very likely at some point. The cost of an attack wouldn't actually be that much to pull off. Even a short term (i.e. much cheaper) attack could completely destabilize the faith people have in Bitcoin.

Are we just waiting for an attack to occur before actually doing anything?

An attacker that isn't motivated by money will eventually attempt an attack. This isn't an "if", it's a "when".

Some billionaire, inherited wealth rich kid could completely devastate Bitcoin for under $50 Million.

Some people love to wreck shit. Rich guys that love to wreck shit? It could get ugly.

Somebody console me. I want to be wrong. What am I overlooking?


It is not cost effective to attack Bitcoin for economic reasons... $50 million to gain what?  Double spend 1 million?

If done for malicious reasons at any price, it could be attacked.  The community could then decide
to fork to alternative proof of work hashing algorithm.  Yes there would be damage done
and some transactions rolled back but I think Bitcoin would live on.

Of course it would live on, but the problem is that if we fork we might end up like Vericoin, but at a much larger scale, which is bad for everyone. Merchants that got paid and shipped the items would find their payment missing from their wallet, all around the world.
Governments could bribe or take over cex/pool and attack bitcoin, since it's competing and winning their pieces of paper.
908  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: 51% Attack - Why isn't anything being done about it? on: July 24, 2014, 02:19:30 AM
Ghash is the closest and they have said that they will be reducing the amount of miners if they get closer which they have been doing which I think is good as they own most of the hashing power right now but even if they didn't do that and had 51% it doesn't mean they could do the actual attack there is still some luck that they would need to perform the attack I honestly believe this attack has no threat to Bitcoin at the moment.

Ghash won't do a 51% attack even if they could just because they earn money through bitcoins.
By double spending they would decrease the trust people has in bitcoins and their business won't work anymore.

It's true but they have already made their bucks and if for some reason they lose a lot of their money and or get screwed by someone whats stopping them from going AWOL and attacking Bitcoin?
ghash is continuing to sell more of their mining chips aka their GHs as they buy them from bit fury so if they are not reputable they will not be able to sell this mining capacity

No, they're not, the GHs on the market is GHs already on the market. They're not buying any more, and selling had nothing to do with being reputable.
Stop blabbing nonsense.

How are they not trustworthy?

Have you been living under a rock for the past couple of months, or are you just making retarded posts to bump up the post count for the signature campaign?
Seriously. Ghash.io and Cex.io is the worst pool/company ever, even worse than deepbit back in the old days. They want to do a 51% attack and double spend (In my opinion).

914  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: At what point (hash) is solo mining viable? on: July 23, 2014, 03:04:44 PM
I understand that everyone is going to say not to mine and blah, blah, blah…  Anyway…

Is there a magic number regarding hash speed where you can try solo mining?  As a new person on a budget that’s just trying my hands at this, it seems like the earning are low when you join a pool.  I’ve been mining around 15gh/s for 1 day and 12 hours and I’ve earned .32USD or .000509 bitcoin (current bitcoin pricing is 620.13).

Without breaking the bank, is it even possible to make a profit once you factor in kw cost?


Anyone can solo mine even if you have 1 gh/s. But it is like gambling trying to hit the jackpot. You will need to have at least 100Th/s to consider yourself not gambling..

Wrong. If something doesn't have a 100% chance of doing what it's supposed to, aka succeed, it's gambling.
It's simply probability, but he's right, if you don't have a few Terahashes, don't even bother, it isn't worth it.
915  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: How do I stop receiving a high stale/ invalid hashrate on: July 23, 2014, 03:00:36 PM
The guys above me have no idea what they are talking about.

The latest version of cgminer that supported scrypt was 3.7.2, and after that, what you mine is automatically SHA-256, thus making all shares invalid.
What you need to do is download cgminer 3.7.2, and add to your bat file the flag "--scrypt".
916  Economy / Services / Re: PB Mining -- 5 year mining contracts! on: July 23, 2014, 02:56:57 PM
What will seeing a pic do for you vs receiving your payouts?
What will a pic really prove?
Don't matter how many pics you see, you can still get scammed
if it's a scam. That's all I'm gettin at.
But I don't think they'll ever show a pic.
But I'm seeing my payouts, that's all the proof I need.

I don't think a retarded person needs church.
But yeah scared folks & politicians do.

Let's simplify that a little bit.

Politicians = Retarded Thiefs.
Therefore, Retards go to Chruch.
Also, the Church is a huge ponzi.
So the church is a thief.
So basically, a retard goes to a thief.
Or, in other words, a less-intelligent thief goes to a clever thief.
I dunno what I'm saying, but yeah.

Perhaps the reason this wouldn't happen is because there's nothing in wrecking bitcoin for the super rich? 50million to do it maybe, but in destroying bitcoin's credibility, there'll be no value resulting from any dastardly deeds I'm pretty sure.

Correct. The effects that it would have would be meaningless, and it can be blocked easily, but it's not a reason to ignore it.

CEX.IO announces 10% maintenance fee reduction and 10 times withdrawal fee reduction

CEX.IO Bitcoin Crypto Exchange and cloud mining service is pleased to announce major improvements and updates, which resulted in significant lowering of costs for maintaining cloud-based GHS and decreasing withdrawal fee 10 times.

As the first and leading cloud mining platform, CEX.IO is on a constant lookout for competitive electricity providers offering better prices. As of July 23, 2014, the monthly maintenance costs have been decreased to $0.18 per 1 GHS, which is 10% less than the former price of maintaining cloud-based mining power. CEX.IO is persistent in finding the most beneficial electricity contracts to establish the highest quality of crypto-trading services, as well as in acquiring hardware according to the latest technical characteristics. Thus, CEX.IO is glad to inform about updated mining hardware, which has also allowed decreasing maintenance cost due to lower power consumption. The updated range of hardware will be shortly presented on the Redeem Hardware page of the website.

In addition, CEX.IO has reduced the withdrawal fee 10 times, from 0.001BTC to 0.0001BTC. Such update is an absolutely unique offer, which is a part of the upcoming program on improving auto-payouts on CEX.IO. According to the respective program, it is planned to make users free to choose the amount of withdrawal fee, which will, of course, influence the timing of transaction processing.

CEX.IO is working hard on making as many automatic and customizable functions on the exchange as possible and is constantly monitoring users’ suggestions and requests on internal forum and external communication platforms. The most popular user requests are being implemented constantly.

http://blog.cex.io/cex-io-lowers-maintenance-cost-by-10-and-decreases-withdrawal-fee-in-10-times/

Good job. You brought things that were supposed to be in place, I have no idea why withdrawal fees were so high, and why you needed so much for maintenance.
Now all you have to do is add a 10% pool fee, I'm sure we will all be happy then.
919  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Free electricity but no free Internet... Should I still mine? on: July 23, 2014, 09:18:22 AM
I live near a university that has a library where anyone can just enter and plug in their laptop.

However, since I'm not a student there, I don't have access to their free Internet. Sad Now, I know that you need to be connected to the Internet in order to mine so my question is, do you think it would be worthwhile to mine in my situation? Obviously I would need to use my mobile Internet to mine which is rather expensive per GB.

Because of this, I'm guessing that the profitability of mining would depend on the amount of bandwidth that mining consumes, correct?

The library is open from about 6 o'clock morning to just before midnight, so that would be roughly 15-18 hours of non-stop mining.

The miner would have to be quiet too and not emit too much heat. A USB-powered miner or something a bit bigger but with passive cooling would be perfect.

seriously now ... you want to say you have nothing better to do than just go there and waste 15-18 hours/day watching your miner mine???


get a job! Get some internet and electricity at home and mine from there!

Exactly, it's just retarded. You can get a cheap GAWMiner Fury, but unless you stupidly sit at a library for nearly the entire day for like 3 months, you won't profit.
Forget it.
