Huh?  C-CEX.com decides to close (might as well have) for a month?  Who does this?

Are these owners so rich that they don't care?  Or are they struggling financially and this is their way of preparing to give up?

I don't buy the vacation bit.  It's like begging people to elsewhere for their trades.

Their motto was "Trusted, Secure & Friendly Since 2013"

It should now read:

 "Trusted [when open], Secure [as can be when we are fishing] and Friendly [to our friends, customers not so much] from 2013 to December 2017 and we'll let you know about 2018"

Clearly they couldn't care less.

I just got lucky too. Had buyers remorse a couple of days later and asked for my money back. Donít recall the amount but it was a lot more than $600. Maybe I ordered a few of them.
But PayPal came through and I watched the circus tent unfold from the sidelines. Just luck.

Meant to get by this place and take a look at it before Christmas. But it will be late next week now.
I have one miner I havenít been able to place, running in my office right now.  Thankfully itís an L3+ which can be relatively quiet and still productive.
 More new orders on the way with no home and a contract running out soon on others. Would not mind having them local.
I will get by there Thursday or Friday and hopefully report back.

Looking to host an L3+ right now, an S9 in January and additional miners as they are purchased or leave other hosting locations. 10-30 total within 12 months. US only. Please PM if available.

Looking for suggestions on new coins!  Especially the below Algo's!

SHA256
QUARK
SCRYPT


Coins need to be on exchange and have at least a 0.01BTC buy backlog. 


Please add LINX scrypt coin. One of the most profitable lately.

Anyone on this forum with 8 posts and a comment like that either:

1. Is brand new to the scene and does not know enough to have a legitimate opinion.
Or,
2. Is a troll / sock puppet - who has been here a while, makes new accounts, and hides behind their anonymity while:
    A. Attempting to irrate you by making inane argumentative, yet baseless statements. They hope we start arguing
         with him and amongst ourselves.
Or,
    B. Is a competitor or the friend of one, with a new account, hoping to spread FUD about your business.

Neither should be responded to as it's what they want.
And yes, there are people that F'ed up in the cyber/crypto world.

Iíll be having some of my miners hosted at their new facility as soon as itís up and running.
I have been mining since late 2012 with the past 3 years almost exclusively utilizing remote hosting like Vincentís in North America and earlier in China.
As soon they are ready to receive some inventory, Iíll start posting a multi-part review. It will include both shipped and purchased miners.
Looking forward to evaluating their service and facility.
10  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Bitmain's Released Antminer S9, World's First 16nm Miner Ready to Order on: December 11, 2017, 06:15:32 AM
No problems.
There are LOTS of un-official resellers. They would never sell for prices at or below official Bitmain website.

S9 is very hard to come by these days. Since BTC is like $16K today.
Even if you purchase S9 for $4000 it would take you approximately the same time to recoup price difference (Market price - official Bitmain price) if you wait and purchase from official source.

Good answer. I have never bought a miner from anywhere other than the manufacturer. And while Bitmain is out of stock (by choice) more than in, itís worth the wait for a number of reasons.
óTrusted Supplier
óGuaranteed new hardware
óWarranty
óNot a scam (if Bitmain, Avalon, few others)
óLowest price
And as BSP said, more than likely your not going to make a profit quicker going elsewhere.

There are a very few ďauthorized dealers ď but usually their inventory follows Bitmainís and The prices are higher.
Every time the price of bitcoin jumps like this, the big scammers come out for an easy buck. A lot of uninformed people searching for a deal, thinking they can buy a miner online easily because they can buy everything else online.

12  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: Total noob in mining on: November 07, 2017, 09:09:34 AM
Greetings earthlings!
recently, I bought few contracts on Genesis mining, but I want to mine more and there are no BTC contracts. So I decided I will go with real mining. I understand the theory, but struggling with picking up the right hardware. Can you suggest the most recent configuration I can use? I have some 2000 dollars. Are ASIC miners the thing? Which?

Thanks in advance!

Bitmainís Antminer S9 is the best bang for your buck and the most efficient miner available (sometimes).
But itís not always available. Like right now.
A distant second is the Avalon 741. More expensive per TH/s and significantly less efficient.
I would keep watching Bitmain for the next release of a batch of S9ís. Although the 741 is available now.
Purchasing an S9 from a reseller will cost you too much and tends to be risky.
13  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: H/w Hosting Directory & Reputation on: October 16, 2017, 06:41:45 AM
I have a 10x10 cage and two 42U cabinets in a NYC datacenter for an existing business. We are quickly migrating most of our applications to AWS, so there is a lot of empty space in the colo facility but our monthly cost is fixed.

Would it be worth it for me to get some mining hardware in there to offset the cost of the unused space? Also, would the existing power (multiple 110v PDUs per cabinet) be sufficient?


That really depends on your power cost.  Being in a Tier-II or Tier-III colo in NYC I can't imagine the power is cheap.

OP said his costs were fixed.
It depends how long your contract is for and how much time you want to spend figuring how to mine. Then there is the the question of how risk tolerant you are.
The first thing you should probably do is go to Bitmainís website. Using the specs for their S9, L3+ and D3 miners, plug the cost, speed and other info into their respective mining calculators to see if you will have the data center space long enough to earn back the cost of the miners. Right now I think the the order of profitability from high to low is D3, L3+, then S9 or T9.  But that is also the order of instability (high to low) as far as profit margin volitility goes. 
Make sense?
To give you an idea right now, 150 Th/s on an S9 SHA 256 miner gets you about $200/day.
1000 Mh/s (2x L3+) gets you about $40 - $60/Day. 
But no matter what miners you choose, count on waiting for a batch to be released, then after you pay, it will be 1-2 months before they ship to you. Markets will change between purchase and delivery and as you are mining. So donít expect to get as much profit as the calculations say you will.  But as I said time is likely to be your biggest limiting factor.

They just recently dropped back down to 105%. It has fluctuated a few times in the last couple of months, even to the point of having 0% bonus.



With little or no notice.
16  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: Bitcoin.com Pool, 110% PPS on: October 03, 2017, 05:48:34 AM
Could not tell you. I left when it stopped being 120%.
Which happened very quietly.

At Viabtc now. They switch between BTC and BCH depending on profitability.
Past 24 hrs. BCH has been 169% more profitable than BTC.

EDIT: The Pool has found 44 blocks in the past 6 hours.
I used Viabtc for a while.  I am back to bitcoin.com.  They are at 110% PPS, and they have an auto URL that switches between BCH and BTC.
Viabtc has a massive BCH hashrate when itís more profitable. Bitcoin.com is better on BTC.
I have found you have to move around as conditions change. No one pool is the best all the time. At least not from a profitability standpoint.

18  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Ebit e9 miner with 6.8Th/s from Ebang company a new rival for existing producers on: September 24, 2017, 05:32:11 AM
I have the E9+, the 9th version. I have to admit, it wasn't the best investment I could have made. The miner itself was ok, using it was the same as an S9. The problem is the cost and power usage. I tried tweaking the frequency down to get it to achieve better power consumption, but it seems that the miner itself is already pretty tweaked. for the price, it really isn't worth it compared to an S9. Mining is about to become increasingly cutthroat since many people are coming into mining due to the recent price boom.

Only those with cheap electricity will survive the coming year

Truer words never spoken. Hate on Bitmain, and they often deserve it, but no one else has really come up with a more profitable magic money machine yet. And given how long the S9 has been on the market, Iíll bet they already have a working  replacement. I bet itís mining away in their HQ right now.
19  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Bitmain's Released Antminer S9, World's First 16nm Miner Ready to Order on: September 14, 2017, 09:09:25 AM
does anyone know the release dates bitmain had for the s9s with 14 th?

like when they originally released them and when the first shipping/deployment dates are specifically

I ordered an S9 13.5TH on 7/8/17 that was promised to ship between September 10-20.
UPS says it will be delivered in the US Friday, 9/15.
But don't recall when I saw the 14TH sale.
20  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: Avalon A7 announced on: September 09, 2017, 05:45:20 AM
A simple google search shows plenty of hosts, but do you have one you recomend.


Sadly no one I recommend without reservations except Bitmain Warranty in Denver.  But in most cases you need to purchase your miner from them in order to get hosting.  If you are seriously looking for someone to host your miner pm me.
