Hey everyone, I am interested in bitcoin mining.
I haven't been a big hardware guy up to now. Mostly into SEO software and building websites for profit.
But am inspired by the concept of electricity consumption to digital currency arbitrage. Skipping the whole marketing and selling steps.

May be a challenge here in Japan, with electricity at about 27cents per KWh. Any one in Japan running profitable rigs?

Or will have to figure out how to remote mine. And set up a rig back in Canada 7 or 8 cents per KWh.


Welcome aboard, Buckets! And everyone else who has joined recently.

With your electricity costs, you may want to consider mining with FPGAs. Besides the much lower power usage per hash, they require less space and fewer computers to run them than what any sizeable amount of video card hashing would. A list of some of the available FPGA units can be seen here; http://bitcoinfpga.com/  Not to mention, using less electricity to find blocks is more eco friendly as well.

Cheers,
 Derek

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA
It is being worked on by smart people. -DamienBlack

I've been looking for a place where virtual "face-to-face" transactions take place, such as exchanging bitcoins for services, etc, so I found this forum through the Bitcoin Wiki. Just started using bc again after a year-long hiatus, but looking forward to making some new friends here.

Hi,

I do mining since about 1/2 year now.

I'd LOVE to get permission to post to the other forums - and not just the Newbies forum.

At the moment I am doing a lot with P2Pool mining.

cheers,
F.

Hello all,

I am finally getting around incorporating Bitcoins into our business.  Wanted to for a while, but am not too tech savvy and have been putting it off.  Hopefully by the end of this week, we will be up and running.  Check out my post in the “BitCoin Businesses and Developers, Lets Get Started!” section for more details

Why are we interested in Bitcoins?

55 52.5% -Because Bitcoins is a great way to stick it to the Federal Reserve and other centralized banking schemes that use the force of government to protect their monopoly on the counterfeiting of money.  We want to participate in our small way to support alternative decentralized currencies.

40 37.5% -The Bitcoin community seems like a great place to offer our goods and services, as well as purchase the goods and services of others. In order for a currency to be successful it needs to be able to be exchanged for commodities.  We don’t mine Bitcoin, but we do create other commodities…so hopefully this is a win-win for us all.

10% -The newness and novelty of Bitcoin sounds like a fun adventure to be involved in to see where it goes and what happens.

I’ve been lurking for a long time on Bitcointalk and want to thank all those that have put this forum together and everyone that is sharing their knowledge.

EDIT: thanks for the help with my math. Roll Eyes

Something doesn't quite add up ...  Huh
Have you considered that some people may be a member of more than one group?

Ha Ha, you are right.

I upped the 5% to 10% and couldn't decide where to subtract the other 5% and forgot to edit.

Riko here I just learned about bitcoins yesterday and I'm quite intrigued. I've already started mining (though only at 30 mhash/s) and am hoping to learn more about this "money"

Hello world...
7 stands for infinity
but there is nr 8
here's song nr 7 of my personal playlist (with the list included)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEi9ZQrEjr8&list=PLE75F76BBFE99A180&index=7&feature=plpp_video
guess which one from all of the rest stands for:
8th song

hint:
SHA-256 hash for the title of song nr 1 is:
5bf652191e5f46ee33a937534b472be14252e3610a3007cc87a86d283d6130f2
