123  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: @ZCashReview: New Podcast on Zcash and the future of economic privacy! on: March 05, 2017, 07:00:03 PM
Hi folks, I'm posting this on behalf of @ZCashReview and @coin_artist (she of Twitter-based fame due to cryptography puzzles with Bitcoin prizes).

I'm pleased to introduce ZCash Review, a regular new podcast sponsored by Decred and GPU Source, discussing all things related to the #Zcash project and the future of economic privacy.

The first episode covers the history of Zcash and features Dr. Matthew Green, professor of cryptography at Johns Hopkins and host of blog.cryptographyengineering.com.

Check it out on SoundCloud at soundcloud.com/zcashreview!

I have  followed zcashreview on tweeter, I will start see it and
why you don't make zcashreview on YouTube than soundcloud
due to YouTube is more popular than soundcloud,
and many people has account on there than on soundcloud,
or you make channels about the zcashreview on YouTube.

We're now live on youtube, find our channel here:

Thanks NSF for posting on our behalf it's greatly appreciated Smiley

We will work on getting a Youtube channel up soon.  We're also now available on iTunes podcasts (as of about 2 hours ago): https://itun.es/us/6Kekib.c

Let us know what you think of the show and and how we can make it better. If there are any particular guests you'd like us to interview we'll do our best to have them interviewed. 

Our next episode which has already been recorded is with Zooko and Andreas Antonopoulos discussing Zcash and the design of the ceremony.

Claymore,

Are you ever planning on releasing a version of this software for Linux?
126  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Claymore's ZCash AMD GPU Miner v5.0 on: November 14, 2016, 01:06:28 AM
Is v5.0 available for linux?
127  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Claymore's ZCash AMD GPU Miner v2.1 on: November 08, 2016, 03:44:21 AM
Has anyone benchmarked a R9 Nano with the latest version?

Also, any news on a linux release?
128  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: [50+ BTC Bounty] Public GPU Miner for Zcash on: September 10, 2016, 05:26:03 PM
I was thinking about writing one, but 50 BTC "promised" in forum posts is nothing like 50 BTC in an escrow account.  Get actual money into a kickstarter or indiegogo and it's a different story.

Show me devs competent of completing task and I will spend the painstaking time and effort to organize the escrow.  Organizing the funds makes no sense if no one is agreeing or showing enough competence to complete task.
129  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / [50+ BTC Bounty] Public GPU Miner for Zcash on: September 10, 2016, 05:13:47 PM
Hello,

My fellow Zcashers and I are looking for an interested developer or group of developers that have the skill set to develop a GPU miner for Zcash's Equihash algorithm.  Several people have offered to donate bitcoin for a Open Source/public solution to this problem.  Here is a forum thread from Zcash forum stating everyone's intent:
https://forum.z.cash/t/crowdfund-gpu-miner/1324/105

Currently, one individual that I'm aware of (Ampy) has created a Zcash GPU miner and has opted to sell to a mining farm privately.  Funds from the crowdfund were supposed to pay for the release of the miner to the public and potentially open source it, but it appears that negotiations with the public have fallen through.

If any interested developers can prove or provide a GPU miner by launch or shortly after launch we will organize and transfer the funds accordingly.

Please feel free to PM me for more details.
130  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Bounty crowdsale to GPU-based miner for Zcash on: August 28, 2016, 09:43:30 PM
Formal proposals should be made here on the Zcash forum:

https://forum.z.cash/t/crowdfund-gpu-miner/1324

Most people have opted to commit 1 BTC each for access to the miner.

There is a video with a poem and what looks like a password at the end (CL34RI7Y), but it doesn't work. And if you look at the source of the textadventure game, you'll see that it's making a post directly to http://whit3r4bbi7.com/api.php, so you could brute force it if you're lucky. The response to a correct jail code will be a username+password+url.

Edit: turns out the video is from a previous puzzle: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=766000.msg8824358#msg8824358

Please don't brute force our server our database for whit3r4bbi7.com is fully encrypted and the server is shared with other projects.

Here are the messages encoded in the QR codes. I couldn't get a few of them to read, I would need to manually clear them up a bit for the reader to understand them. These are roughly left to right, top to bottom.

  • You pass through two large iron doors into a large chamber. There are magical symbols inscribed on the walls. A strange mechanical sculpture of rusted gears and pipes dominates the space of the room. Beneath the sculpture is a vent emitting hot steam.
  • You nearly fall into a pit of deadly iron spikes. You see a shadowy figure in your peripheral, but when you turn to look, no one is there.
  • The corridor is lined with pulsating light bulbs in iron sconces. In an alcove there is a fallen statue with an inscription “When azoth and fire whiten Latona, Diana comes unclothed.”
  • A corridor is before you. There is a dim flickering bulb at the end of the corridor. You're not sure if it's your eyes adjusting to the low light or if you see a shadowy figure wavering in the distance.
  • Skeletons hang from chains and manacles against the walls. The floor is covered with iron gears, rusted scrap metal, and empty glass vials. You discover a leather jacket.
  • In a small damp room there are metal gears exposed in the eroding floor. The gears are rusted and beyond repair. A clanking sound can be faintly heard in the distance. Someone has scrawled “He who can burn with water and wash with fire makes a heaven of earth and a precious earth of heaven.”
  • An iron chandelier hangs from the ceiling here. There is a bookcase, you discover it pivots smoothly and reveals a secret door. In the small secret room there is a book lying open on an iron podium. The book is titled "Mechanica Mathematica," there are pages torn out.
  • The walls have been engraved with geometric patterns. An iron altar sits in the corner of the room with an inscription “If you make the earth fly upside down, with its wings you may convert torrential waters to stone.”
  • There is an iron passageway, it is very dark, you walk slowly with your hand against the wall guiding you... just in case. You come across a fortified iron door guarded by two mechanical gargoyles. There is an inscription on the door “The dragon guards the key.”
  • You are in an iron chamber. There are strange mechanical devices strewn about the room. It is dusty and the air is stale. On the wall someone has scrawled “The diameter of the sphere, the tau in the circle, and the cross of the globe bring no joy to the blind.”
  • http://textadventures.co.uk/games/view/5craldfdmkkzngf1davsna/days-destroyed
  • You are in a large chamber, there is a domed ceiling above you. An iron sarcophagus sits in the center of the room with an inscription that reads “SI SEDES NON IS.”

It seems to have something to do with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porta_Alchemica

The picture has many cells and the colors and triangles could all hold information. The QR codes are all also on specific coordinates in the grid, this is likely to be meaningful. They each have four or six studs around them, and the embossing on the QR code pattern itself has its light and shadow from different directions.

The html title for the image is "pipedream portal".

I couldn't get anywhere in the text adventure yet.



I got them all to scan with Scandit and neoreader apps via iPhone.
133  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / KNC Titan not hashing on: May 09, 2016, 12:12:22 AM
Having issues getting my KNC Titan to hash.  The miner is able to connect to pools, but is showing a hashrate of 0.

It's been a few months since I fired this miner up, but I'm not sure why it's not working at all right now.
134  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Hosted mining space? Does anyone do it? on: June 26, 2015, 03:32:37 AM
1: If you have a life, it won't be profitable.  You have to be able to spend time troubleshooting, reboot when something happens, setup/takedown/sell, impliment cooling...  It's a lot of work.  Not to mention, if you're away for a few days and a machine goes down, there goes a ton of your profit.  God forbid a piece of networking gear goes out

2: If you're going large scale, you need to think about the possibility of something going wrong.  You're not a datacenter with fire suppression, and you're working with a ton of power.  Spoondolies can easily happen to your house.  Insurance would negate any profit

3: You're a residential house using a ton of power.  This could easily be you

4: Power for the machines =/= power you'll use.  AC is expensive both to implement and run

5: Power strips to take advantage of your full capacity will cost a lot

6: If power goes out you're screwed.  Got a storm?  There goes your profit.  Same goes for internet.

Enjoy mining yourself, fill the room to your heart's content.  Don't try to make it into a business

It's electrically wired to run a Bitcoin center, the room was built to host a small server farm. We already run 16 TH/s now. There has been quite a bit of money invested outside of my personal involvement. I'm just trying to figure out a way to cover the losses for my extended family without investing more money.  The primary question was does anyone know of anyone actually using hosted mining space.
135  Economy / Service Discussion / Hosted mining space? Does anyone do it? on: June 25, 2015, 02:41:08 AM
Does anyone know of anyone using hosted mining space? Like Asicspace? Not cloud mining, space where mining hardware is powered and stored.

The reason I ask is, I live in a house that has a Bitcoin mining room that can handle 600A at 208 V. Cost of electricity is extremely cheap here ~$0.04/kW/h.

The mining setup we have now is about to be removed.  The hardware does not belong to me and is leaving in a month.  I'm debating offering hosted mining space and wanted to know if this is a service worth offering?

Thanks for your help!
136  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: The Legend of Satoshi Nakamato, FINAL STEP PUBLISHED.... 4.87 BTC GRAND PRIZE! on: April 04, 2015, 06:54:39 PM
Also: check out how the OP responds to my statement here : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=766000.msg10953793#msg10953793

Then follow the real ending in the first bullshit ARG and you will find MANY similarities ......

The use of images and/or gifs instead of a proper answer being one .....

EDIT: Wheres my PONY this time?

so do you think it is only a joke? There isn't any ARG or enigma? It could be possible this time but I'm not sure.

OH NO!

There is a puzzle but you will get NO prize for cracking the riddle.

Follow this and draw your own conclusions: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=766000.msg10953793#msg10953793

EDIT: There's a reason she decided to move the new puzzle to another forum...
But guess what, I am not a member of the other forum so her bullshit ARG did not get crashed again (and yet).

Sorry everyone this person I'm responding to is trying to scare people away from the puzzle or is just being crazy.  He thinks I'm @Coin_Artist, which I'm not. I've actually contributed to working on this puzzle and I promise the prize is up for grabs and you can access it through the image she has posted. I have verified the answer myself in person.

Good luck all you "Gunters"

Cheers Smiley


137  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: The Legend of Satoshi Nakamato, begins here.... 4.87 BTC GRAND PRIZE! on: April 03, 2015, 01:25:50 PM
Well the final step of the puzzle is here, via @coin_artist's twitter account... Goodluck everyone! This one looks tough!

Apparently everything you need to win the ~5BTC prize is contained within this image. #FML

What is done is done, no point in whining about that decision, but it would be nice if someone told us about ""level" system, because if I knew I'm on a lower level then other's and that I could still participate in the puzzle maybe I would gladly do it, this way I was thinking it was over some time ago.

I believe the idea was never to force the players to use the LTB forum as the means for sharing information about the puzzle, but instead control the flow of information to the players.  These advanced features like Token Controlled Access are not available on any other forum unfortunately.  It allowed players who were dedicated to solving the puzzle a step up on people just sitting and waiting for the final step to become available to the public.  Where the players congregated and discussed is up to the players themselves.  It's unfortunate that so many players were put off by this... lesson learned.
