Hi. I'm Beryl, a BitCoin skeptic (a critic but not a troll).

Hope that doesn't mean I'll be banned:  I won't use any ad-hominem attacks, I promise, if nobody uses any ad-feminem attacks against me.

"If you kill me you will not easily find another like me...a sort of gadfly, given to the state by the God."

Interesting how many people legitimately just spam this thread...

Anyways, i am John, and indeed enjoying the process of bitmining. I am far from most of those miners in size, but hey investments take time right?

Hey all!

So far I have some mining on a 6990 behind me and managed to pass a few BTC over to Mt.Gox to watch them devalue, haha. I am having fun though and I do believe that there will be an electronic form of money in the near future, BTC seems like a good candidate for that.

I just won another ATI 5870 so my numbers are going to go up.  I have a Linux system I will be using for my new miner...

Sup, it's moeSizlak.  Been mining since '08:  June 8th.  Currently mining in a very small (20GH) pool:  http://www.rfcpool.com.  I got in right after they found their first block and it's been hella profitable (luck++) ever since.  But seriously, the real reason I'm on this board is I want to advertise my new website, which will be online and ready to go by mid-August, BITCOIN BLACKJACK:  http://bitjack21.com

The site is done entirely in HTML5 & Javascript, with a PHP/MySQL backend.

It's a 100% honest bitcoin blackjack game.  The house edge is less than 0.5%.  There are 8 decks, shuffled after every hand (to prevent card counting which would tip the edge in the player's favor).  The minimum bet will be 0.01BTC (currently about 15 US cents).  Doubling/splitting and most other common blackjack rules will be in full effect.

Come check it out, it's guaranteed to satisfy all of your bitcoin gambling needs!

Site will be going live in early to mid August 2011.

Hi... Here to make frenemies with speculators. Bitcoin needs its own economy, not its own exchange rate.

Bitcoins are earned, not traded! If you plan on hoarding BTC, you're on my target list. (And yes, it is possible to swim in BTC.)

Don't give me that Bull... I'm one of those honey eating Bears that the bees hope to never meet again... Viva la BTC!!!

Hello, this is my first time here and wanted to figure out how to set up a worker in a pooled bitcoin mining community.

Hi all, I'm Lucas.

I'm a software engineer, the primary language I use is C/C++.
I first heard about Bitcoin in a slashdot article and was inspired by how it might change the world.
I believe decentralized currency is the future, in order to make that a reality I would like to contribute to the bitcoin code.
Current banking systems are corrupt and not functioning responsibly.
We cannot continue to allow corporations to exploit the bailout system.
Economic order needs to be restored and crypto-currency seems to be the way to go.

My secondary goal here is for this to be a learning experience.
I hope to learn quite a bit about cryptography, mathematics, economic systems, decentralized networks and network theory in general.
All casual interests of mine that I've always wanted to learn about and subsequently implement.

Hi, I am Bart and new to this forum. Last week I started out with two rigs on deepbit.net. In total I just got my 1st BTC Smiley. Reading on this forum, I saw a webpage which showed who finished the last blocks. On that I saw slush and deepbit most. First I thought because they have to most power (workers), but on another thread I read that workers do not combine their calculations on the same block. I was thinking that solo mining was interesting, if you have the most Mhash/s power combined by more rigs, on your own bitcoind. But now I read that those rigs are not working on the same blocks. Even further, if you have 4 GPU's, all four miners on that rig are even not working on that same block. Is that correct?

Does that imply that solo mining is only interesting if your hardware has very high power per miner ? So that 2x a HD5850 ~350Mhash/s less interesting for solomining that 1x a HD5970 doing ~700Mhash/s?

Or do I have this wrong ?

Would be great to post in the correct threads instead of this newbies section.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
HD5850 mining at 340 Mhash/sec. What a waste of energy... but what to do without an ASIC ?

Hi, I'm the BossChair.  I named myself after the one slightly fancier chair on the BitCoin show, because that's the chair the host gets to sit in.  I'm new to bitcoins and haven't really jumped in with both feet yet, but am interested in taking part in the discussion.

Welcome, xxxcoin!  I guess we joined at the same time.  Your coins sound dirty.

It's good to be here!  I mine on deepbit and bitclockers, and I am totally satisfied with the setup and the payout.  I am affiliated with a company that will do web and mobile development (HTML, JQuery, PHP, MySql, Android, etc) and accept payment in bitcoin:  https://plumflowersoftware.com

Hello, this is my first time here and wanted to figure out how to set up a worker in a pooled bitcoin mining community.


Basically you install OpenCL and get it working, then point it at your pool with login info.  If you give some details about what hardware, OS, and mining software you're using I'll be happy to help you try to get it working.  If you already figured all that out (it took me a very long night a few months ago, and I feel like I'm pretty good with Linux and tech things), then kudos and have fun!

Yours,
Lou Minati Elite
