Hey guys. Just got started with all this mining and whatnot 2 days ago, and I'm getting pretty interested in it. A user in the bitcoin-cad irc channel told me to come here to see if anybody would sell me some coins, so here I am Tongue

Looking forward to interacting with everybody here.

Hey guys, im jerry.. Im down with the whole bitcoin thing and ive been reading all the post since the beginning.  I have bitcoins and i have a dual 6970 miner right now.  Me and my friend henly are totally down! Im not a noob, but right now its at 15 bux, and I think its on a decline.  Im scared ppl arent buying coins and ppl are selling like crazy just to get out.  We need major media coverage! Major positive coverage!  We need CNN, MSNBC and other stations to tell the benefits of bitcoin so people can join in and stimulate the economy.  Or else it is doomed!  Who thinks the same!

Hi, Im from central germany, act. with deepbit for a few days @ est. 750 MHs (3xHD5830, win7x64 KIV's GUI/poclbm), planning to come up with another 1.5 - 2.0 GHs next days :-) if they can deliver some 6990's.

***

Open question: Does anyone know, how many 5830 or 6990 cards can take a ROG formula IV board with Win7x64?

***

Deepbit again & again under attack?? & 3 THs add. power since two days ago within the network. For a short time this start with add. 6 THs. This is MWatts of electricity & cooling power. How can pay this for a longer time on MtGox rates going down?

***

MtGox is @ consolidation after an unawaited rally at the beginning of June. Keep cool, usd 50/BTC comes within the next months. This last rally was only the prelude. Now the market have enough BTC to strenghten BTC use itself. After this will come the next rally.

But, additionally, if or when Greek is going down, defaulted & than the Euro is going down a little bit, this is BTC-push power again, the lost confidence into classical currency.

If a big rating agency, as announced earlier, will downgrading the U.S. in july (if the administration can not handle the congress properly regarding the allowed national dept), this is the next step. So take your time, think about the powerfull factors at work, wait until good selling rates. :-)

***

And a little bit later, if I made it some day out of this strange newbie section, I will render you the ultimate BTC-deflation scenario if we'll see sometimes the crash of a major currency. Everyone he waits until this time with a few BTC in his wallet, will be a happy man!

R.

Hey, name's Dropbear. Was going to see how long it took for me to mine enough BTC for a t-shirt on a 10mh/s computer, but now it's gone into the "Will do by 2013" category. XD

Also, Australia has horrible banking options for BitCoin. Tongue

Hello, I'm TeaRex from Hannover Germany. I'm currently mining, not really interested in speculation by now, so I sell my coins whenever I get 5 or so.

I got a 6990 last week... sleek beast, though I heard electrical heating is kinda old-fashioned. ;-)

Converted my main Desktop computer into a mining rig for now, and am using my netbook for other stuff until the 6990 is paid off (which I do hope will actually happen before difficulty really goes through the sky...). I found that running the computer with the case open and pointing a large room fan at the card on lowest setting allows it to run with a lot less noise, I can even sleep in the same room (which is the only one I have in this shared apartment).

For the moment I'm being adventurous and trying out the new Taiwan "Multipool" but unless the payout is noticeably higher, I plan to return to Bitcoinpool soon because of the great community spirit and openness.

Currently I'm mining on a freshly installed Windows 7 with Phoenix SVN. So I had to learn how to install and configure Python to run it... If you want to try it look at the How-To I posted in the Bitcoinpool forum.

That's it for now, bye!

We're looking at starting an exchange, it's already starting moving ahead. Drop by #bitcoin-aus some time.

Been following this for a couple of weeks and lurking, but I should start building a rep here so I can post...

So, I was thinking about getting mining hardware and have decided instead to just buy BTC where possible and market supports it, I've now successfully waited out doing a few transactions on Dwolla and VirWoX so have some coins in the wallet, and I'm wanting to start bartering to get more.  And if I had an extra couple of hundred to invest, I'd be most interested in the open FPGA miners and a board, yes I know that is not at present economical but I would treat it like a learning experience.  Hoping to see that project grow, certainly. 

Thanks for all the accumulated knowledge here, and hello!

Hi Everyone, I'm new here.

So I've been reading a lot about Bitcoins for the last few days, and I think it's a beautiful ideal. I certainly want to see it succeed, as over the last few years I've begun to understand whom inflation systems really are geared to benefit the most, and it's not me, nor the vast majority of people I know.

I'm interested in the permanently currency capped system (although 21Million is faaar too few BTC for the whole world to have a share in, even down to 8 decimals (that's 3000 microBTC per person currently on earth...hoarding = major economic failure, unless I'm misunderstanding something, which I must be, because I doubt no one else has realized this by now). I've heard both that it can be split down infinitely, and that it goes to 8 decimals, so I'm a bit confused about that. There does need to be a more natural way to split coins (i've seen that already mentioned in a few threads, though) - mainstream will never accept 0.00000005334 as a satisfactory payment amount Smiley.

I'm not really interested in the fact that this is supposedly anonymous (although I don't actually believe that's completely the case), but I love the fact that it is run via p2p. The anonymous thing may actually be something that will turn legitimate businesses away - association with shadiness. There's so much pain governments already cause small businesses, and cheating income is a terrible risk to take, when they can easily see what you've bought with the "$1000 income you declared last tax year". To encourage businesses to sign up, they mustn't be enticed by the "Tax man won't know what you're doing" factor, as that will just cause this currency to have too many enemies. I believe more businesses will actually join if honesty and trust (verified = pref) is what the whole network is based on.

I believe the benefits of a system like this (secure and relatively fast transfers, no "owner" setting new rules) can win support on their own merit. I, for one, am interested in creating value for the currency, by creating bitcoin only products if I can - for it to succeed it needs something to compare itself to other than another currency (which is all its doing now).

Anyway does that count as 5 posts? or should I edit and split it all up Smiley
