1  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: [Free tool] Find triangular arbitrage opportunities across 250 trading pairs on: February 05, 2020, 09:35:22 PM
I have a question about Ethbull arbitrage which is a 3x leveraged erc20 token.

The description for it reads that it is designed to move 3% for every 1% ethereum moves. I'm looking at the charts for it on tradingview and having a hard time understanding why it moves the way it does.

My question is: How do you determine what the correct price for ethbull should be and how do you take advantage of arbitrage when it is not correctly priced?

For instance, looking at a recent swing on eth shows these prices:

======== ethbull   ethusd
17-Dec   464   122.96
3-Feb   1364   188
     
Ratio    2.94     1.53


In other words from dec 17 to today ethbull increased about 3x and ethusd increased 1.5x. That would mean ethbull moved 2x what eth did, not 3x.

Why is it like that? What is the formula to take a chart of ethusd and plot what the correct price for ethbull should have been?

Is there something wrong with the price it is listed in other exchange?

That's the question, how do you calculate if there is a mis matched price or not?

Also, I've noticed that sometimes ethbull moves in opposite direction to ethusd. For instance on binance today ethbull is up 21% but ethusdt is actually very slightly down.

It seems like there might be some kind of huge mis-pricing here that could be arbitraged?

5  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Extracting profit from mining heat as thick slab wood kiln on: May 30, 2019, 01:16:15 PM
I saw this mentioned a few times in other threads but nothing with very much detail so I thought I'd make a thread to see if anyone had done something similar.

The basic idea is to use the excess heat from a mining farm to dry thicker slabs of wood than what you can normally get at wood supply shops. Thicker slabs are more valuable to wood turners and things like bowl blanks can sell for quite a bit of money on sites like etsy and ebay.

There is an infinite amount of free wood on craigslist. Tree service companies will often happily give away the trunks they remove because they have to pay to have it hauled off.

Good afternoon,
As head of the Marketing Team weíve been testing new features to enhance Polisí sphere of influence. Taking into account the current situation of the market, we believe that this is an opportunity to work harder by contributing with strategies and proposals. We have been working with the idea of a referral/reward system and social media traffic. Which other ideas/campaigns/strategies would you like to see implemented?
P.S: We are fully committed to Polis Pay Card at the moment, be prepared! -The Marketing Team

Update from the team of POLIS


You should have a single guide that is up to date for setting up masternodes. The current guides are out of date and require people to spend a lot of time asking in discord how to get them working.

The notes I use for setting one up are:

1.) Basic setup: https://github.com/tokayseo/polis-doc/blob/master/masternode-setup/Masternode-VPS-Setup-Guide.md

2.) Except new url is https://github.com/polispay/polis/releases/download/v1.3.0/poliscore-1.3.0-x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.gz

3.) For setting up as service so it starts on boot: https://forum.polispay.org/t/polis-create-a-masternode/36

4.) Correct addnode list:

addnode=node1.polispay.org
addnode=node2.polispay.org
addnode=insight.polispay.org
addnode=insight2.polispay.org
addnode=explorer.polispay.org
addnode=35.227.49.86:24126
addnode=192.243.103.182:24126
addnode=185.153.231.146:24126
addnode=91.223.147.100:24126
addnode=96.43.143.93:24126
addnode=104.236.147.210:24126
addnode=159.89.137.114:24126
addnode=159.89.139.41:24126
addnode=174.138.70.155:24126
addnode=174.138.70.16:24126
addnode=45.55.247.25:24126
addnode=209.250.245.66:24126
addnode=199.247.3.98:24126
addnode=199.247.29.65:24126

5.) Useful linux vps commands:

watch polis-cli masternode status
watch polis-cli getinfo

6.) Debugging, if get message "Not capable masternode: Masternode not in masternode list" it probably means the transaction funding the node has not been fully confirmed

7.) Really the number one priority for the Polis team right now should be to get more people running masternodes.

will be some good news?
what with price?

Good news is this is possibly a good time to start slowly accumulating masternodes at lower prices. Probably not a good idea to buy very much all at once but scaling in a little at a time over several months might be a good way to get a bunch of nodes at a huge discount.

Hello everyone, can someone help me? I need a windows version of sentinel. I want to install a masternodo without using linux or vps. Or what solution could you give me?

Just set it up using linux. I used vultr, it works fine ($5 vps). I used these guides:

1.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGRur9bMZd0

2.) https://github.com/tokayseo/polis-doc/blob/master/masternode-setup/Masternode-VPS-Setup-Guide.md

3.) https://forum.polispay.org/t/polis-create-a-masternode/36 - for setting up as service so that everything restarts on boot of the vps.

Your addnode list should look like:

addnode=node1.polispay.org
addnode=node2.polispay.org
addnode=insight.polispay.org
addnode=insight2.polispay.org
addnode=explorer.polispay.org
addnode=35.227.49.86:24126
addnode=192.243.103.182:24126
addnode=185.153.231.146:24126
addnode=91.223.147.100:24126
addnode=96.43.143.93:24126
addnode=104.236.147.210:24126
addnode=159.89.137.114:24126
addnode=159.89.139.41:24126
addnode=174.138.70.155:24126
addnode=174.138.70.16:24126
addnode=45.55.247.25:24126
addnode=209.250.245.66:24126
addnode=199.247.3.98:24126
addnode=199.247.29.65:24126

Make sure your windows wallet is not going through a router that blocks the ports it needs.

Interested

How many people do you have working on this?

If you're moving 1500 units you'll need a certain amount of security and physical infrastructure to handle all the orders. Do you have pictures of the facility you'll use to process everything without things getting stolen?

Do you have an actual address? (Not just a PO box)

What happens if you don't get enough actual orders during preorder?

How does the ROI using your FPGA compare to using an Amazon EC2 F1 instance?


Not to jump in, but Iím handling the physical side. This volume of goods is cheap in the big world tbh. Also kind of funny to imply physical security is a risk and then ask for the address of the warehouse holding the cards in a public forum.

I wasn't asking where are you storing the items, but are you an actual company, with an office somewhere? I'm sure you've seen cases where people start multi million dollar ICOs and the only address they can provide is a studio apartment above someone's pizza shop.

You write "this volume of goods is cheap in the big world". What does that even mean? Any way you look at it this not a "cheap" group buy considering you're asking for several million dollars of funding on an internet forum and apparently have no other presence than that?

It's a little insulting to say that questions about security are "funny" and if that's how you treat customers on very first contact then I guess I'm not so interested. I would not want to have to deal with someone's snooty attitude if there is some kind of problem with the hardware.

Good luck to you.

ps. You might want to select a better company name. "All Mine" sounds like "you gave me your money and now it's 'All Mine'"

I havent seen any coins announce they are forking. Its pretty stupid to hate a company that saved me a ton of money. I would buy 20 1070s to mine, (I have), why would I not buy one these instead. Less power, space, heat, cost, and various other pluses. People have warehouses full of GPUs. The hate for what Bitmain does, is ridiculous when GPUs are literally doing the same thing. Except they are using more power in some cases. If you think GPU miners arent causing the same issues, then you are naive. GPUs also cost more money per hash, and is also taking away a lot from th gaming industry causing huge disruption and price hikes. If any of you built a computer that mined better then anyone else, ALL of you would use it.

They should care because the extra hashrate will cause zec price to dump since there will suddenly be way more sellers than buyers. If they care about their premine they'll switch algos.
14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Bitmain launches the Z9 Equihash miner on: May 04, 2018, 02:14:38 AM
I ordered one and paid via bitcoin with no issues. Payment went through within 10 mins. I personally don't get all the crying over asics. they aren't going anywhere. In terms of supporting a single company that ends up dominating the landscape, i think that's a different argument and not one that is all bitmains fault. if you look at the other companies producing asics, they have terrible selling practices. They either require 5 units MOQ or having stupid high prices. If people want more options then those companies need to do a better job of competing and trying to get more business than just the large farms. I gpu mine and I try to get an asic here or there if it looks profitable, but asics aren't going anywhere and trying to fork every coin every time a new asic is created causes more problems than it solves imo. Just my .02

The instant inflation that asics cause is great for traders but basically bad for people who want to actually get utility for the coins by spending them.

Cryptos will never be mainstream as long as the prices swing all over the place. Everyone asks "bitcoin - when moon?" and the answer is when it really goes mainstream and starts getting a major chunk of the multitrillion dollar banking industry.

That won't happen with excessive volatilty from asics so the coins that shift to be asic proof will get their slice of the pie first. Bitcoin's halving effect will eventually make asics irrelevant to it but most alts still have a lot left to me mined so for them asics have to be dealt with or they will end up in the scrap heap.

16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Sites that list whether new ICOs are using Ethereum vs Neo vs other platforms? on: February 04, 2018, 11:07:13 AM
Is there any easy way to get a list of what underlying smart contract platform various new ICOs are using?

There are a lot of sites that list upcoming ICOs but I can't find any that also have an easy way to tell what those new coins are using as their platform.

Ultimately I'd like to scrape the data and have a way to generate a spreadsheet that shows whether platforms like Neo are starting to win out over Ethereum or if Ethereum is just dominating everything else.

Is there any relatively simple way to do that?

17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Pools (Altcoins) / Re: Zpool.ca: Does it take 20-22% fee? on: January 18, 2018, 11:22:25 AM
I'll look into mining-dutch.

I've kind of changed my opinion on zpool due to this quote from their site:

"If a coin is NOT listed on the pool (except BTC) and you still choose to mine with that address, you risk not getting any payments. BTC is the only guaranteed payout currency"

From what I can tell if you select a payout that no one else on the pool wants to mine then you may never get paid. It seems that they will not use an exchange to autotrade your coins the way mining pool hub does.

Instead, I think that on zpool they only send out coins that others on the pool have directly mined. This saves on exchange fees but makes it so you have have extremely delayed payments. You might never get paid if your payout coin falls out of favor from the mining algos.

This means that if you do a mining test, zpool will have a very long tail where it's paying out your credits for several days after you stop mining. Because the coins vary so much in exchange rate this makes it hard to tell what value you actually got from it.

I strongly prefer that mining pool hub will actually exchange to your payout to get your withdrawals faster. There is still a delay but you don't have to manually fiddle to see if your payout coin is not being mined and have to update your miners all the time like you have to with zpool.

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Pools (Altcoins) / Re: Zpool.ca: Does it take 20-22% fee? on: January 16, 2018, 10:54:50 AM
I'm going to be running some comparison tests but watching the way zpool does its payouts I don't think 24 hours is long enough to get a fair comparison. I think you probably need two or three days for the payouts to stabilize because if you're mining an algo that has a lot of coins, you can have a lot of credit locked up in a half different coin accounts and the payouts are a little wavy even though the input hashpower is constant.

If you have a very small mine it might take more than a few days to get to that point where it's stable.

Miningpoolhubstats is somewhat similar in that only the "Payout Last 24 Hours" for your payout coin really seems to be relevant and it takes a few days to get that number stable before you can see what it actually happening.

The apparent 20% fee may just be because you have about 20% of your coins in other coins that have not reached the thresholds needed to get traded to your payout coin. If you let it hash a couple days you'll have everything topped off and your input hashpower should equate to your output payments.

One thing I like about Miningpoolhub is that you can manually get payments on all your other coins to empty your account so you don't have to wait for them to automatically get traded out. On zpool it looks like it's only automatic trading to get the accounts emptied. Not a big deal but it's a slight difference.

From the testing I've done zpool is the overall best option for me. The people saying it takes a 20% fee are wrong IMO. They need to do a longer test with a significant amount of hashpower, like 2 or 3 rigs worth, in order to handle the fact that zpool has a lot of your coins in different accounts which means the payout will widely fluctuate if you're using just one or two cards.

I like Miningpoolhub but it doesn't have the algorithm I want to mine. Zpool is more resilient to losses due to market fluctuations than straight mining so it is currently my pool of choice.

One thing I don't like about zpool is it pays out every 2 hours so you may get a lot of transaction payout fees. I like that Miningpoolhub lets you set a payout threshhold. However overall zpool makes me the most money at the moment so that's what i'm going with.
