Who mines Burst here? I have some questions about computer hardware. I would ask for some help in /r/burstcoin but I am banned over there for asking the wrong questions lol.

Some moderators there censor you for asking the challenging questions. I will not make the effort of making a new account just to post there.

and what s wrong with your hardware ?

There's nothing wrong. I want to ask what hardware is good for plotting and what hard drives are good for mining. My budget without the hard drives and monitor would be $500.

Anyhow, calling everyone! The community needs everyone's support for funding the Blockchain Northwest conference booth and panel for Burst.

Funding the Blockchain Northwest Booth and Panel. Crowdfund address BURST-NQAW-GQ84-CA6C-7B3LS

all hardware is good if it s not to old should at lease have a dualcore with sse to read the plots, if there are not to much hard drives
if you have a lot hard driver then need an avx cpu because sse (even 4 core is not fast enough)
SSE is really bad optimized

should have a fast enough cpu to plot (i plotted from an other computer over the network, must be gigabyte)
but you can also plot with more slower cpu's on different computer or other network (but better not plot on the same driver with more cpu's unless they really slow)

Ty for the advice carlo. I am preparing myself for hard drive mining experience before Chia and SpaceMesh are released. I am also slowly buying old HDs. They might increase in price if Proof of Capacity and Proof of Space and Time become more popular.

Hi mate,
I am not familiar with mining using HDDs, this is my first time I intend to do this, so I need your help to figure out what I should do to use my old HDDs for mining BURST.
How about profitability of HDD mining?
Is it profitable enough to pay for electricity bills?
Thanks for all your help.

Tech is solid, now burst is getting exposure. Fork coming, first conference to accept the coin as well as the coin being represented there. Also not general market strength is coming back.

Has anyone read the Chia FAQ? Its saying that farming will "not be profitable" but it also says that it isnt costing the farmer anything.

They already assume that ordinary people will plot their hard drives for farming Chia. The FAQ also says that the more plotted storage space you have, the more chance you have in farming the next block.

Is Bram Cohen trying to discourage a farming arms race?

Chia Network FAQ

  • Q: Does more hard disk space mean more Chia?

    A: Your chances of farming the next block are directly proportional to the amount of storage space you allocate to Chia farming.

  • Q: Is it worth buying hard drives to farm Chia?

    A: Chia believes that it will be unprofitable to buy hard drives just for the purposes of farming, as everyone will be able to get rewards from unused storage - which there is a lot of. Farming rewards will likely be small, but it isn't costing a farmer anything extra if you already have the storage for some other reason.

    People have already paid for a lot of unused storage capacity - there's ridiculous excess resources available - so it will be unprofitable to buy storage just for the sake of farming. This is directly related to storage being useful for other things, although it isn't "useful" farming in the sense that the calculation itself isn't productive, but it is leveraging a useful resource.

    To the extent that Chia unexpectedly drives developments that decrease the cost of storage, we think that's a benefit for society - especially when compared to wasting electricity on custom ASIC mining hardware.

Hard fork is upon us in 4 days.

Even if you are the "just in time" type of guy, you should now make sure you have the newest software.

BRS 2.2.0 (or 2.2.1 to be released soon), or newest Qbundle.

New miners, capable of PoC1->PoC2 conversion (jminer, newest creepminer, blago fork in Qbundle)

And starting to convert your plots to PoC2.

If all this sounds like gibberish for you, it's 5 to twelve for you. The links from the BWR #39 above will help you out. Start reading!

See you on the other side.

BRS 2.2.1 is released! Like rico666 said, it is very important to run the latest release to avoid any problems when the fork happens on block 500,000.

BRS 2.2.1 "Pre-Dymaxion" Download

Fixes:
  • UPnP does not close ports anymore, our network of public nodes should grow again
  • problems in blacklisting peers should be gone
  • stability - no single BRS 2.2.1 halted unexpectedly in our tests

Burst Nation, goodbye. But you are welcome to follow the community.

On-line or off-line wallet, don't change anything, your passphrase to log in on a wallet is your private key, if you put it in an on-line wallet, or in a off-line wallet (downloaded the wallet for your computer) you will always find your coins.

quick question: what will happen if we don't upgrade to poc2 and keep mining in a non dymaxion pool? because from what i understood the coins will be the same. so what's the difference ?

OK thank you.

It is also same to whats called a brain wallet. Its not as secure as the standard cryptocurrency wallet, but its secure enough if you know how to keep and manage your keys well.

If you have optimized PoC1 plots then you can still mine after the hard fork. For questions on speed in forging blocks, you should go to /r/burstcoin and ask the miners.

Use Poloniex or Livecoin to buy your first Burstcoins. They allow you to withdraw to a wallet that has not made its first transactions unlike Bittrex.
