Hi,
I'm lexxie, I just discovered bitcoins a few months ago after one of my clients asked if i'll accept them as payment...Being one of those independent people living off "the grid", The ideal of decentralized currency is appealing. I'm a indie massage therapist/webmaster out of birmingham.

Hello, long time lurker.

I discovered bitcoins back in the summer and as I had a suitable graphics card, started mining away. I love the idea of the currency and am hoping for widespread adoptance in the not too distant future!

Hello everybody,

I have long time experience with programming, IT, networks, cryptography, but somehow did not get to know Bitcoin until recently and I really love the idea and hope, that I will be able to help it gain more power and weaken the traditional politicians controlled currencies Wink

Hiya Folks!

Another noob here.
After the failure of PayFriend (and others) to accept payments on certain Usenet indexing sites, I decided to sign up to Bitcoin. I'm also sick of paying large fees to those certain companies.
Bitcoin seems to be a much better way to do things. Just need to know how to use it now and how to mine coins.

I'll try not to mess up the forum too much with dumb questions.

Best for what purpose?

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Don't bother.  It's a specialized occupation that requires much geekiness to become profitable.  You're much better off offering some service to the community in exchange for bitcoins.  Most people are the same.  I have personally never mined anything.

That's no longer possible.  This forum has been messed up for years.

Just to offer an alternative view on mining:

Now might be a good time to take your time reading up about it - there's heaps here - and decide whether you might want to dabble in the longer term.  One thing I like about the ASIC future (should it actually materialise) is it should require less technical know-how than making home-made rigs with graphics cards (check out some of the youtube vids on mining gear) which is what was required before.  If there is one thing I would recommend taking away from your first considerations of mining is that the chances of making great money are pretty low and there's a fair chance of not covering the cost of your initial purchase (and electricity to power it) if you buy at the wrong time.

Another thing I like about the ASIC future is there is very little difference in 'hashing power' per pound spent whether you're spending $1,000 or $20,000.  The bigger difference between profit and loss (other than timing of purchase) is the price you pay for power.  Putting aside maintenance overheads it's pretty much a level playing field so although the odds of you making money from whatever you're spending may not be very high they're about the same as those spending the big bucks at the same time as you.

The way I'm looking at it is if you fancy the idea of playing a part the mining network upon which the Bitcoin network, its future and all its users are dependent and accept you may not see the money you spent for some time if at all then why not? Smiley

It might just be worth holding your horses until things have settled down after the forthcoming introduction of ASICs.  Definitely don't be tempted to do calcs based on today's difficulty figures.  Nobody really knows where that's going to settle if and when ASICs in quantities are introduced.

I'll second MoonShadow's suggestion of finding ways of offering services for Bitcoin because regardless of contributions to the robustness of the network through mining unless enough people are providing services for which people can pay Bitcoin ultimately it has no future.

Best,

Tf

If you have a machine on 24/7 why not have a full Bitcoin client running on it to support the network?

well with the bitcoin value going up these last weeks, it's getting a bit more interesting to mine
though the more value it has, the more people will start mining and the (really small) profit won't go up imo ^^
