Wow, hashing power keeps increasing.  My cut keeps decreasing. 

Exciting and sad at the same time, isn't it?

Exciting because the project goes on, media talk about it and even with the latest value drop after SR busting everything seems going fine.
Sad because my hashrate is everyday less significant Sad

Actually the BTC Value dropping then coming back up after the SR Busting is pretty disturbing.
The only possible way it did that is the Winklevoss twins force investing in it, or other richy riches.
There are 2 major uses for BTC, Gambling/Drugs and one of them just got cut off hardcore.

where do we start to look for the new tech?

miners need to buy new picks & shovels regularly.

The current state of the mining scene is quite uncertain in regards to the vendors. All the involved companies need to prove their capability to the community.

I applaud the fact that KNC didn't let us down and I look forward to cointerra's entry too.

I think it's best to keep calm and don't rush the purchase. I have an early cointerra order, if that falls through for some reason I will wait until 22/14nm is announced, probably in late 2014-2015.

At the moment I would rather buy bitcoin. So far it proved to be a (very) good investment, not to mention the surge in accepting places. For a few months I don't even cash out any BTC as there's always something I need which can be bought with them.


@bspurloc:

You cannot be serious. We have real information on the volume SR handled. It was a spec of dust considering the volume/transactions for other aspects of the market for same period.

If anything, it will make bitcoin stronger:

1.) It's a proof that bitcoin is already much more than SR

2.) Adoption will continue because of #1

3.) There will be a dozen of SR like sites competing (which is positive, as war on drugs is just idiotic and this is the only way fighting against it)


I'm not even sure why you spread nonsense here. Maybe bitcoin is only drugs and gambling for you, but don't think everyone is like you ;-)
(in short: fuck off)

I jumped from cpu mining to gpu mining to asics,  I side stepped the FPGA period, (they appeared to be a pointless device, someone will correct me here)
I still have some BFL (clones) on the way this month, and then low power 28 nm devices due for delivery in December onwards.
These could be too late to market (same as BFL mainstream devices) so the order is limited.
I would have loved to replace my GPU's with devices like the Monarch.(maybe the next generation will follow this path?)

What I am looking for now is an early step onto the next level, whatever it may be. The pool will continue to grow, its called progress.
What we need from the hardware vendors is scaleable devices, not replaceable devices.

Does anyone know a video step by step instruction on getting asic miners to work on this pool .
I got one gpu here .
All my asics are with bitminter since it was the only instructional video I could understand .

I tried for hours to get bfg miner running with this pool but gave up .

I know this stuff may be easy to a lot of you but I cannot follow the written instructions but can pause videos till I get it right .

Thank you for any advice .

Have you searched YouTube?

You can PM me if you'd like with any questions, I have ~60 ASIC USB miners running with BFGMiner. They can be tricky to get working at first.

Have you tried -S all? I am using BFGMiner and I find is easy setup comparing to CGMiner... ugh...

I made a .bat file (name it whatever you want) on my desktop,
open notepad and paste the following:

cd <location of bfgminer folder
bfgminer -o stratum.bitcoin.cz:3333 -u <your worker name> -p <your worker password> -S all

save it then open the bat file and it should work.

I personally don't think they can build the monarch , because of the heat generated , big power small unit with single fan . the monarch is a fluff device to keep you interested in BFL. i personally don't think it will every be built and if it dose i don't think there's anyone left who will pre order it

BFL is just a complete failure.

Late shipments doesn't describe the situation well. They fucked their customers without any willingness to offer any compensation.

They produced utter crap in terms of quality and more than a year late.

Anyone who send money their way is a tool. All the information is available to make an educated decision. AVOID BFL.

they shipped a friends jalapeno 2 months early, it seems in response to him disputing the charge via his credit card company.
but regardless the price of asic usb miners makes them a better instant delivery option

Did someone else noticed that every time the thread title is updated to reflect the total speed, it jumps up quite a lot, just a bit after that.
It was updated to 100TH and in few hours went to 120TH after a stable week of 90-100

Well that's one way of looking at it - that Slush is forcing the increase with the updates Smiley
I thing that he is waiting for some stable value to list, but with the constant increase in power it immediately becomes 'the minimum' instead of average, so maybe he should change it to 100+TH

EDIT: WOW THAT WAS FAST!
 He changed it while i was typing, but my suggestion for 120+ is still valid (we are at 123Th now Smiley )

I guess it's the KNC miners coming online. Most of them will leave as soon as they notice that the current round is 5+ hours (so far).

The pool is 7-8% from the network, which is on average 0.45 blocks per hour or 2h 20min per block ... the rest is luck (good or bad)

Well, here comes the luck again. I left the pool at 105% and during the DDoS attacks I mined myself  Cool. I returned at 18:50 today.  Grin

May the luck serve us through a bright future.

Overall, will there be a stable value in not too far future (2015) say at 10 times the diff, so Slush can use an optimistic forecast?

And is there anything like we can do against DDoS, like paying them back with defcoins? Is there anywhere any info about who or what performed the attacks?

Posession of bitcoins and bitcoin mining is legal in Germany. Use and posession of my bitcoins is according to law, applicable legal framework and principles of UN Global Compact. Place of origin of my bitcoins and my mining equipment is Germany. They are part of my property. Access to this property is absolutely forbidden to non-residents of my household. To avoid ambiguity, I have never and will never grant access on any basis other than stipulated by German law and to be executed by German authorities only. Any act, willful or unwillfull, in awareness or unaware of aforementioned statements, by any person or organization that hampers my ability to anonymously use or mine my bitcoins in any form, will be treated according to German laws. Place of Court will be Germany.

If they haven't already, take a look at HAProxy to fight against those nasty DDoS attacks.  http://haproxy.1wt.eu/  It's a small VM footprint, very expandable and can handle a lot of traffic. 

Tin Foil Hat Moment:  I wonder if these attacks are contracted out.  X pool buys attacks against some of the larger pools so they can solve more blocks while they are down.  Some major hashing hardware is currently shipping now.

Use Varnish, an HTTP accelerator. I use it on my Drupal sites. Haters can try DDoS all day and it doesn't matter. The webpages are cached and served from RAM, not disk. I forget the insane pages per second it can serve, but it's top notch. For example, Lullabot, a Drupal shop that runs the Grammy.com website for the night of the Grammys, use Varnish on it. It can handle insane traffic.

More hash is good but my earning per round is down to 0.17 from 0.25

Keep Slush rounds short by donating to my wallet 1Pbmm1L69wNG7HaCHGLmVKzVCsq6p3UTds and also in case I actually helped someone.
