Hello everyone. New here from usa missed the whole start of btc due to working 55+ hours a weeks for the last 3 years. Have a much more relaxed schedule now and am hoping to jump on the train. I'm really kicking myself. If I would have heard about this at the start I would have thrown loads of electricity at it in a hope and prayer. The second I heard about it It was a 2 year old article and I was thinking this could really take off.

Hello!

Newbie here (though getting familiar with Bitcoins & Litecoins since last couple of weeks). Already mining litecoins (BTC hashrate is not even worth mentioning :-) ). And already found out the cruel world of bitcoin scammers. But that's how we learn!

Hello,

I'm sad to say that I dismissed bitcoin a year or so ago because I was too busy to mess with it.  What a big mistake.  Now I'm fascinated by the who thing and really eager to get more serious about mining.  I'm currently running a test rig at 1.2GHash/s and am trying to figure out how to get into the ASIC game.  I'm a software/hardware engineer by trade and am always looking for new and interesting projects. 

-Jay

+1 to this post
Started from bitcoins 2 weeks ago. Then moved to litecoins due to new difficulty on btc (+36%). I think ltc (and other script cryptocoins) is the only way to survive for videocards miner.

Sure!

One of the websites was selling a too-f**ing-good-to-be-true deal and I jumped in. Immediately realized that this was bad, but I had already completed my PayPal transaction. Started searching around the net and this was 100% fraud. I even tried to dig up details using my paypal transaction, his domain info, etc... repeated chats with the "customer support". All of it was seemingly like what everyone else found out - once you submit the transaction, you are gone. The site looks a bit shady if you know what to look for - the deals for sure are very appealing. Try doing a live chat and you'll get more details about this "seller" and his intentions. Paypal isn't verified, but he has a hazy image of "paypal verified" and every "secure" icon you can get.

With the BTC prices going up, and all the other means difficult, I made a fatal mistake. He constantly spams message boards and reddits with his out-of-this-world-deal. I now made a point to report that to approp board wherever I see it, as well as pester him on the chat, hoping he will atleast stop for a while and save few other newbies like me.

Still trying to get Paypal / my bank to get this reversed. I'll post more details here if anyone is interested.

My 0.02 BTC (I guess right way is to say 2 Santoshis? )  - Pay attention to threads like this at Reddit - http://www.reddit.com/r/BetterBitcoinBureau/comments/1cpx08/official_bitcoin_scam_thread/

Just started mining litecoins in a pool today, from ltcoin.net, used the scryptminer gui from here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=62414.60, and things are rollin' along.  I'll leave it running on the GF's pc when I go back to the bush tomorrow to my off-grid hovel.  Wink

NGO = Government funded?  Can you Aussies not make sure your children are safe without NGO's?

If so...**moocher**  **cough **.

Just kidding, welcome aboard, start mining or hashing for the cause asap.

Yes NGO = Non-Government Organisation
We are funded to care for children that have been relinquished by there parents due to extreme needs.

Thanks for the welcome Smiley
