601  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Ethereum ASIC Miner - Bitmain Antminer E3 and How YOU can help Hardfork ETH on: July 20, 2018, 02:41:31 PM

Given your argument, one could also say a lack of algo change could easily propel ETH below Ethereum Classic. Why would anyone invest in a technology that is not willing to adapt to changes?

As a GPU miner, i'm all for banning ASICs to keep my rigs profitable. As an investor, i'd still vote for banning ASICs to ensure no single company monopolizes the mining industry.


The overall ignorance in this thread is staggering. the quoted post is especially hilarious to me. Hard forking away from ASICs is the side of this coin that is unwilling to adapt to changes. You have it completely backwards. Everyones opinion is based on greed because they already own their rigs. This device fosters adoption by people that dont want to spend $3000 on a GPU rig thats slower than this $800 machine. You can run this without having to constantly tweak and flash BIOS and watch for crashes. GPU mining is a giant pain in the ass compared to a set it and forget it ASIC.

a large concern with many people -- not saying anything in particular w/ the user you quoted is that

for many (myself included) I don't hate ASIC mining, the issue is lack of manufacturers bringing even a semi fair product/distribution to market

Hey guys! VOSK! How did you set up the miner configuration? I have it running, but it is dead on MPH ETH and not showing up in Antpool, even though it is hashing fine. Thanks in advance guys! Vosk, I love your channel!
havent received ours yet (only getting one lended to review, I should have pulled the trigger on one for $800 but was on a huge anti asic kick lol)

Appreciate the support man Cheesy

This is a true man cave!! Looks like you had some fun putting this together. I am sure it wasn't cheap but it will be fruitful I am sure! Nice work!!!

haha no it ended up being a lot more expensive than anticipated . . but all worth it ultimately Cheesy Thanks for watching!
604  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / How To Build Cryptocurrency Mining Shed | What I learned Mining @ Home on: July 18, 2018, 03:39:51 AM
A year ago I wanted to mine cryptocurrency but with just a few crypto miners my basement was extremely loud and almost 100 degrees. I developed my plan right here on the Bitcointalk forum to build my own cryptocurrency mining shed.

https://youtu.be/qMzjwzclODA

Today I review how to build a crypto mining shed
Choosing where to put your cryptocurrency mining shed
Setting up (digging, and gravel) the location for your shed
Electric for mining 120v vs 240v and what I learned
Internet/Network for mining - running ethernet + switch
Mining farm heat management, intake vents + exhaust fans
What I learned and what I would do differently when building a cryptocurrency mining shed in my backyard!

605  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Bytom Mining - ASIC algorithm now cracked by GPU miners? Big profits? on: July 17, 2018, 03:57:14 PM
@VoskCoin

As far as I know there are no exchange supporting mainnet coins for US customers. Gate.io is the only one I know of that takes mainnet tokens and they don't allow US customers. They will allow you to sign in and deposit but require ID verification upon withdraw.

I hear through the grapevine though, that if you use their mobile app it bypasses the ID/KYC verification and allows you to withdraw. I haven't tried it myself though.

Interesting tip! I'll give it a shot when I get a chance thanks for sharing that Cheesy
606  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Bytom Mining - ASIC algorithm now cracked by GPU miners? Big profits? on: July 17, 2018, 03:56:39 PM
Wholly crash Batman. This thing is going down like crazy.
I took some screenshot from WTM when I was mining it.

On 5 June it was $11.32/day at 1800h/s (without power cost). $.65/btm

On 6 June it came down to $10.03/day at 1800h/s $.65/btm

On 24 June it was $6.72/day at 4100h/s (this was when Bminer was released).
$.33/btm

On 12 July it is $3.92/day at 4100h/s
$.29/btm

ugh, that is an insane drop off

Wonder what the future of not only mining this coin is, but even just the coin w/ a mining fall out like this O_o

So sept we see new toys
Can't come soon enough as far as I'm concerned lol -- Something to edge out some of these ASICs . . maybe. .

Whats your verdict on the acorns Phil?
608  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Cryptocurrency News ZenCash block reward decrease + Miners in NY charged more $$ on: July 17, 2018, 03:54:13 PM
They didn't raise fees for home miners they raised the fees for big companies like bitmain from coming here to suck up the power from existing residential and commercial users which I think was the right move these big miners are evil and don't really give a shit about decentralized mining

Do you have some good sources on that? Not arguing with you, just want to read more about it

General crypto news update video, but the most interesting topic in it regarding mining is that regulation has been passed in upstate New York to raise the electric price for cryptocurrency miners . . . What are your thoughts on that?

+ Robinhood no fee crypto trading and they've added BCH+LTC. Satis reports that 75%+ of ICOs are scams. Loki Network released their v3 whitepaper. ZenCash block reward changing next week and supernodes go live! USDT Tether hires a compliance officer.

613  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Acorn M.2 FPGA based GPU Accelerator on: July 12, 2018, 05:35:51 PM
KJS sent that to me for a one month test run and demo it was a very nice piece of gear.
He fully trusted me with the gear and when demo was done along with the thread I shipped it back to him on my dime. but kept a month of mining profits.

It is a bit too much to ask him for the 60k rig to do the same thing.

but I know that ethos software and KJS and ohgoditsagirl and gpuhoarder all have said they have had working relationships and they do not speak badly of each other.

I know KJS sent me a 6k machine to test run and trusted me and I was good to him and did what I was supposed to do.

So I feel this gear is real  and I am mostly bitching that they missed deadlines and I do not know what to do  with my coin/cash/gear ratios mostly due to this delay.

If I am 25k in cash 10k in coin and 20k in gear do I just wait and wait and wait.  or do I sell more gear or do I want to change my mobos buy more  ryzen 2700x and x470 boards.

At the moment I was hoping to just keep my 1080ti's and use acorn2 for a boost
I did not want to move into fpga's

Thanks philipma1957.

I will be able to send you a BLACKBOX system for review, but without GPU's or FGPA's installed.

The BCU1525 FGPA's have not shipped yet so its impossible to ship a fully loaded one even if we could.

having it with 1 or 2 bcu1525 and an acorn2 would be a good way to show what it can do.

or having it with an acorn2 and some of my 1080ti's would also by a good way to demo it


lastly is a mixed system possible  say 1 or 2   BCU1525 FGPA's  an acorn2 and  a few 1080ti's

this last one would appeal to a lot of miners like myself with some  gpus on hand and boosting the setup with an acorn2 and a fpga or 2.

For many  your 16 fpga + acorn2 = too much $$$

but a combination  of 1080ti + acorn2 + BCU1525 FGPA is possible and attractive

I think this is the kind of transparent collaboration that a lot of people have been looking for.  This is the kind of thing that will push a lot of people past the speculative barrier.  Well done and thank you!

Of course, looking forward to actual follow through and results.  And I would be more interested in use cases illustrating GPU enhancements (1070, 1080, 1080ti here) as opposed to the somewhat limitedly accessible BCUXXXX FPGA.

Oh... and if anyone is looking to expand on this and include more testers I would recommend Vosk Coin. 

Grendel25 thanks for recommending me to have the privilege to review something, seriously. I appreciate it.

Please, no. Guy is annoying af. Just my opinion!

Well, I would but I need my review sample back as we only have 1-2 spare.

In Vosk's last video he mentions mineority disappointing him by selling FPGAs instead of working on ProgPOW. Then he's complaining about reduced Nvidia profit due to the Z9 mini and bitmain being evil, and how 'people' only care about profit, yet he's bought two Z9's and another ASIC on the way? If he's not going to set a decent example, he's just a hypocrite. I don't hate the guy, I just think he could do a lot better if his reviews were more focused on the technology and less about how much money he can make. Let him and his subscribers buy their ASICs and leave the FPGAs for people that can tell the difference between a scam and a deal at this early stage. If you have a review sample please send it to Seth or someone else that actually made some FPGA videos recently.


what load of rubbish, you make no sense at all.
Vosk does a YT channel that looks at all aspects of mining, so how the hell can anyone gave worthwhile opinion on ASICs but not actually have and use any??
He has stated many times that his preference is for GPU mining and so ProgPOW would be more important to him, its just a point of view.
You advocate groups should stick exclusively to one tech or another? FPGAs or ASICs, like fanboys? Really?
Which 'people' only care about profits? your statement is not clear, Bitmain certainly are evil and have carried out their business with total disregard for anything other than their own bank balance. The thing is mining is supposed to be incentivised by profit, why do put that down as a bad thing?
Think harder before post anything, you currently have no credibility.
 

Thank you for the kind words and support. People like you are why I stick around Cheesy

July cryptocurrency mining news, today we are covering how Bitmain is being valued at 12 billion US dollars and they are seeking 300-400 million USD in funding. The Bitmain Antminer Z9 mini has been torn down, and examined. Vitalk Buterin of Ethereum thinks that Proof Of Work aka Crypto Mining is centralized especially because of Bitmain. Ethereum is adding VYPER, and we have incoming Nvidia GTX 1160 and 1180 graphics cards both with release dates in 2018.

He's not referring to the fact that one pool is having issues.  He's referring to the issue itself as the evidence.  The issue is that transaction fees for ETH are so high right now that this pool stopped sending payments, because they are the ones covering the fee.

There're for sure better options available now that can replace Ethereum completely. Ethereum introduced the concept of "smart contracts", which made it so successful. Now many coins are creating a better interface & system for creating & managing smart contracts.

I'm not expecting any flippening anymore, not at least with Ethereum.

Really? I'm not seeing any other platform competiing with eth. EOS is the laughing stock of the crypto community. EOS is a piece of centralized garbage, barely anyone uses neo and tron is a scam.

Eth has the 2nd highest trading volume after bitcoin.  Eth isn't going anywhere.

I'm not referring to EOS or Tron. I'm referring to the coins which have smart contracts platform "under development" right now, and once they're all ready to go, they might outperform Ethereum. Look at Cardano for example, the thing they're developing is better than Ethereum in almost every way.

Why exactly do you think Cardano is better? I am not arguing with you, genuinely curious.
