Look at the requirements for 32M blocks, 400GB daily, 128Gb ram.
At 32M, this excludes 95% of the current bitcoin nodes creating almost total miner centralisation.

There's this new coin called physical silver bitchez that fixes horrific bitcoin centralization, blockchain bloat, and scaling.
....
Because the sheklers at Goldman Sachs told people to buy bitcoin with both hands, which means it's probably going to 12 cents

None of the above statements is sane. R0ach, we all know your story. You were really 'smart' to buy silver around 50$ instead of bitcoin which was 200-300$. Now the silver is 16$ and bitcoin is 3000$. Silver hardly ever will return to 50$, while bitcoin will continue to rise.  You can still cover your losses and buy bitcoins, if you are not broke of course  Tongue.

So what do the bits in the charts show?

Is there a BCC fork going on?

I don't know if the traders are panic selling due to this 'cash' rumors or is just the usual Sunday dip. What we know for now is that 2 exchanges - viabtc and okex will accept BCC - the new cash fork. Only Wu knows if he is going to activate HF on 1st August... for now. The situation of ethereum was absolutely different. Eth HF wasn't decided by Vitalik alone but with voting of the whole community - both owners of ETH and miners. Each miner has a vote according to his hashing power so it was a community decision. Now Wu acts alone as the bitcoin villain. Not very different are also Ver and Wright of course with their moron 'projects'. Btw, my advice for everybody is to store your coins on cold wallets until the storm passes. Then you can split the conis and dump the BCC or whatever shit is called Wu's altcoin. It is unclear which exchanges will accept BCC and make the split for their customers.

If viabtc begins trading ABC (http://bitcoinist.com/viabtc-begins-trading-bitcoin-cash-bcc-for-chinese-yuan-cny-in-anticipation-of-uahf/) does this mean that there will be HF chain split at 1 Aug? In that case, the drop of price will continue indefinitely and Jihan Wu will curse the day he made that shit  Huh


I think everyone should take a sigh of relief, the big blockers are going to fork off and effectively create their own altcoin.
This gives the possibility of an amicable divorce.
The markets can decide the outcome and the petty fighting and trolling can reduce.

Plus, a successful fork to BitcoinCash means that 2x part of Segwit2x has less likelihood of being supported and causing another more damaging fork in November.

NYA is still valid and there will be a HF in November. There is a possibility of 100% support so there could be no chain split. On the other hand, ABC was initially proposed as a counter strike to UASF suggested by core's developers who wanted to make it with nodes and change in POW. However, this will not happen. I am really surprised that after the lesson of the Bip 91 Wu and probably Ver still insist on their 'projects'. They clearly saw that the bitcoin economy is against any chain split and will punish any man no matter how great he think he is. Such splits are endangering the upward trend of the BTC as everyone on this planet saw this Summer.

My bet for ATH is 17.08. Reason: the Segwith will be activated by then and Jihan Wu will abandon his ABC project.
829  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: The Barry Silbert segwit2x agreement with >80% miner support. on: July 20, 2017, 11:11:17 AM
Exactly as I expected, miners signalled for Segwit2x, now they slowly withdraw hashpower to prevent Segwit from activating. Is anyone here smart enough to tell me what happens if Segwit "locks" but doesn't "activate" (scheduled to be around mid-August according to my reading). Imagine August 1: BIP148 tries to take over, BitcoinABC begins mining, Segwit2x is in flux, and the world is watching...
....

On the positive side, maybe ABC will be a new chain with value. Sort of like a stock split - maybe existing coin will be worth something on both BTC and BABC blockchains... But I doubt 148Coin will last more than a few days... These morons crooning about "POW change" can do each other up the azzes...




You describe Core's plan B actually, when Segwit is not supported by enough miners. Then there WILL be a permanent POW change, so you will not be able to mine bitcoins, only the new ABC fork.

Ver should just start his own coin - Vercoin! I have a feeling Roger will signal BU till the very bitter end.


I've been asking the same question myself. The aswer probably is that Ver isn't a good programmer/cryptographer to invent a new coin. The whitepapers of ethereum and zcash for example are way beyond his IQ capacity  Grin Another reason is that if a coin is a fork to bitcoin it will attract more the pump groups in Poloniex.
831  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: July 19, 2017, 06:58:28 AM
It seems that the danger of segwit-failure-fork is (almost) gone. However, there still remains the HF in 3 months, so the price won't go as far as we wish. Besides, Roger Ver and Jihan Wu still want to make use of the situation and fork their own altcoins. These 'inverstors' like to buy new coins and pump them with the help of their associates in Poloniex. They may have a general notion of blockchain but they are ignorant of the cryptography  embedded in the white papers of the leading altcoins like ethereum and zcash. Unfortunately BU and/or ABC can emerge anytime and survive as forks even with their present hashrate. As always, the common bitcoin holders are at the mercy of the big whales. I would prefer a POW change that will make useless the asics and return the mining to the gpu's and cpu's. Btw the above mentioned altcoins have a code that prevents the asic technology to take advantage over gpu's, so the china dominion would be over for good. Then we will have a really decentralized bitcoin.

If you do have fiat, set sub 2000 bids up.  I did a week ago.

Can't see it holding all the way to the 1st at this rate whatever happens.  And if Segwit signalling doesn't look close at the end of the month it will get messier still; you may be looking at today's price with a wistful nostalgic sigh.

Note:  been away, and about to head off again to where it's light until midnight. However, I'm very happy with the WO survival...  and congrats to infofront for being brave enough to take on the thread. Right man for the job IMHO.

for a very new guy like me, how far do you acctually think the price will drop

and off my stash of btc that i have been buying (actually not knowing what i was buying ) for 1.5year  never sold a coin still just keep holding ??



Keep buying! Downside is very limited. We'll see >10000 by the end of this year.


thanks for the advice the last days where breathe taking Smiley Smiley  but just to learn understand what do you think acctualy is happening now or is going to happing ( explaind in easy terms and easy english cause i'm normal dutch speaking Smiley   )

and i will keep buying dips then

Take any advice here with a bit of salt. There are some users like Lauda who are well known for manupulating people to rob their money.

And I was thinking Ver accepted the fiasco of his BU project. Now he will try to sabotage segwit: https://www.dashforcenews.com/bitcoin-com-to-dump-segwit2x-roger-ver-might-help-nchain-block-segwit/
Pride, greed and envy are the forces that drive this lunatic. Angry
835  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: July 13, 2017, 01:52:05 PM
Since this is the speculation thread, do you guys think we will get to 2600 again before august? Lost and made some money, still need a bit more to break even again.
                                                                                                                                     

Bro, I'll heartedly advice you not to play in such a volatile market as crypto is. Unless you're a full skilled trader from stock markets. BTC is king and will win the final battle against fiat. Soon things will be like that:


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
You are completely right, I'm definitely not a skilled trader yet, just been lurking for some time

I am just playing with around 2k, and I only buy in trends + when I see clear candle patterns and with the info from this website and telegram. So most of the time I only make "safe" (I know it is almost never safe") trades. But then I discovered leverage trades, made some good money, adrenaline was pumping, got overconfident (also the drinks did not help) went long just as it was turning (Still have no idea where my logic went).

I am aspiring to become a full skilled stock trader, BTC just happened to come on my path and with little money you could still easily make a couple of 100 bucks. Also the idea of using it as long term savings account looked great since in Holland I get less then 1% growth in a year... Also since the laws for bitcoins are still in a grey area you can do a lot of fun things with it (currently writing a coin buying and investing website with ideal support for a select amount of people). The API's in general are funt to work with as a programmer so it gives me some incentive to work.

As soon as I get that website up and running and have some more funds I'll start opening up a proper broker account and reading into where to start there... This is getting a bit off topic but any suggestions on where I can start even with a low amount off funds. Probably best not to post it here.

TLDR;
Lost all my earnings and a chunk of my 2k due too leverage and intoxicated, slowly getting it back. Also do want to get into  normal


better to buy as the price goes down and sell as the price goes up, but don't buy or sell too much in order that you do not run out of either bitcoins (on the way up) or fiat (on the way down).

So in that regard, if you only have bitcoins because you used all your fiat to buy at a price that is higher than the current price, then you just have to wait it out for however much time it takes to return to you purchase price level, even if it takes a year or two.  

In the meantime, if BTC prices continue to go down, which surely is possible, just continue to buy $10 per week (or whatever reasonable amount is in your budget), and sooner or later, you continue to bring down your average cost per BTC and you will be back in the the game and be able to sell some of your bitcoins either below $2600 or above $2600 (but as long as you are selling as the price goes up and buying as the price goes down, you should be good), and whenever BTC returns to that $2600 level (whether this week or a few years from now), you will be fully back... and hopefully learned some lessons along the way...hahahahaha   Cheesy

Sounds like a clever plan. But i just buy and sell. And have 1 (1.03) Bitcoin more today, compaired to yesterday. Does that suffice ?
Let me brag a bit, my life is otherwise pretty boring . . . Smiley




Actually, I think this plan is pretty good. On the other hand, If you really made 1 btc today this means that you sold 100 btc at the top and then buyed again at the bottom (-1% tops with reduced trading fees). But what if the bitcoin surprised you and raised by 5-10%? Then you will lose bigger profit in fiat than all possible gains in the 1%-daily trading.

Is anyone having a similar problem to this: One of my 280x cards suddenly started freezing the miner and windows as soon as it starts hashing. If I put -li option it hashes a bit longer but again hangs. I tried several different risers and different psu, installed newer drivers but still the same result. Then I dissasembled and reassebled again the card. I put it back again and here we go... it works perfectly untill now (2 months later). Now, the funny part: the same problem happened to another 2 cards of the same rig. Unfortunately this trick doesn't work on them Sad What may be the reason for that? Is it possible that the thermal paste has something to do with it?

The rise of btc with 10% at bitfinex and poloniex since the last week with regard to usdt is fake, since in kraken usdt dropped by 8-10% to the fiat usd. The whales are trying to bite the 1%-profit daily traders so the whales can withdraw in time to their bank accounts before the big drop. They are still trying to delude the traders that there is a chance bitfinex can be saved. The truth is it is doomed and this was planned a long time ago. These two exchanges (btc-e and biftiniex) are well known for their shady owners and fears of exit scam. It is a matter of days, may be hours before the bad news is announced. If the so called 'bad news" of tightening control of chinese exchanges, sec denial and bu fork, lead to 40% drop of price, imagine the damage to the price caused by real bad news of the imminent bankruptcy of one (possibly) two of the largest exchanges. This may lead to panic withdrawals from other exchanges, so nobody can predict how deep will be the new emerging crisis. Huh Of course the btc (now usd) whales will buy very low just to sell a year or two at a much higher level.

One of my old cards was overheated (above 90 C) because its fans stopped. Now it works for several minutes, then the hashrate starts to drop until the cards stops (the fans are working and it has normal temperature).  I tried with -li option. It works longer but in the end stops. Is it dead, or I can do something to save it?

So the fans are spinning correctly now? Try resetting it to the factory defaults clocks and monitoring it to make sure the fans are running constantly and not stopping and starting randomly.

The fans of this card broke a long time ago (it is an old Sapphire 280x). Back then I attached a 10cm 3500rpm double bearing external fan to it. The fan was powered by a 4 pin cable conected to the molex of the psu. Unfortunately the connection was loose and sometimes the fan stopped causing overheating above 90, may be 100 C. After that the rig crashed but for some time I didn't notice that this card was overheating and crashing the rig. Now the fan is attached to the mainboard and it works all the time. However, even with temps of the gpu at 50 C  the card stops after 1-5 mins max and the rig crashes. It was always at stock settings. I am afraid the card is gone. I was just wondering if by coincedence this may be caused by the driver, psu or the riser. It is a lot of work to test all possibilites. In the end I can try the famous 'baking' trick to revive the card.  Tongue
