What exchanges do folks use and/or recommend? I have a little bit of coin Smiley that I'm considering changing to $$ when BTC hits $510 (LOL). just wondering what exchange seems the safest and the least expensive.

Thanks

I agree!

I'm with Coinbase as well.  It took a little time to go through the approval process.  Linking checking account with coinbase took a few days because I had to enter in two (2) deposits they made to "confirm" with coinbase.  The same thing has to be done on other exchanges.  We have to send them a copy of photo I.D. (front & back) and a copy of recent utility bill.  I cannot remember everything I had to do to get confirmed with coinbase but I think it's worth it.  I like the 2FA (2 factor authentication) as well.  They will send you a text message with a 7 digit code for you to log in.  Without that code, you cannot log in.  It is done every time you log in.

Still PLENTY of time for $510.00.   Grin

I'm still trying to find out who makes this Prisma you're talking about and can I buy it from the manufacturer with BTC?

Also, was it two 1.4 Th/s units or one 2.8 th/s unit?

And something else:  Does it come with PSU?  That costs money too.

And something else:  Is it stand alone or do I have to connect it to a host running cgminer?  If so, I don't want it.  I have Mac OS X.  I may still be able to run cgminer in Terminal of my Mac.  I'm just not very familiar (comfortable) with entering commands in Terminal on my Mac.  I'm rather a novice at that.  I like the ease of use with the "Stand Alone" units.

I normally don't vouch for anybody, but I will for CrazyGuy.

Looks like payment for batch 5 deadline is midnight tonight.

you will need psu and one pi for every 4 units.
I would recommend using a pi or A10cubie instead of the BE controller.

Thanks for the link...

Looks like one has to buy a 1200 or 1500 PSU to run one of the 1.4 TH/s Prisma's?

Also, when it says, " - ASICMiner Block Erupter Controller (.069 BTC) - Controls up to 8 units - "  Is that what makes it "stand alone" without using a host with cgminer?

I'm staying open minded and trying to determine which to get; Prisma or S4.

Ya, it plugs into the pi which has mining software on it. Again I recommend the pi or A10cubie over the BE controller.

I would go on price. I have both bitmain and the other miners(AM/Rockminer) with the BE200 chips. Bitmain seems to always be a little more stable.

Edit: I'm told the A10 cubie from Amazon is really the best. I have 8 pi's in my rig and they are great, but like I said I have heard the A10 cubie is the way to go. Note: they said not to use the A20, just A10.

That was my MAIN concern and my concern was staying with "what I'm familiar with."

Not sure about something else I'm ignorant of.

Pi is cheaper I have PSU's and you only need 1200 watts which can be split such as 650w controlling 2 of the 4 boards and a 650 on other 2 since 4 independent boards make one prisma

Edit: Make sure you check desables. Most miners other than bitmain are LOUD. I have two Rockminer RK-Boxes that sound as loud as a big vaccum machine.

okay, thank you.

Sounds fine for a "seasoned" miner.  I'm not seasoned.  It took me approximately 14 hours to figure out how to even connect to my S3's.  I had to manually enter in IP Address: 192.168.1.1, Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0, Default Gateway: 192.168.1.99 in my "Network" under "System Preferences" before I could finally get to the log in screen of the S3.  LOLOLOLOL Grin

Part of that 14 hours also due to paper clips I was using for the PSU.  Apparently, the paperclips were COATED WITH A CLEAR PLASTIC OR RUBBER.  I did not know this and was almost to the point of pulling my hair out before I finally figured it out.  I told myself I'm doing everything correctly with the PSU.  Then, I noticed on the paper clip package that they were "coated."   LOLOLOLOL   Grin

I'm just not sure I want another fiasco with something new.  New to me anyway.

I understand as I was really wanting to stay with a all in one like s3's and my cointerra however i was able to sell my cointerra and one s3 on ebay to buy 1 prisma with rpi and image and wifi and had the btc i mined last month from those 2 to get the other i will hash 1th/s faster and use 1000w less power so for me it was an easy decision the gui that crazy has running on the connected pi makes it pretty straight forward 8 pool failover etc is nice and since wifi wont be as affected with network issues by using same usb port for network traffic and connecting the prisma's the S4 was just as much an investment as PSU's if I needed as I would need to make some electrical changes Etc buying appropriate power cords and having outlets rated to handle the load so for me personally 1100 dollars for 2.8th/s was the better route even having to buy psu i could of gotten 4 650w for prob 100-200 max  Grin

WOW.

I know the S4 starts up loud then it quiets down after it starts mining.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KD4vdR7ZS8s

Watch this video on the S4 starting up and see how loud it is at first.  It then quiets down once it starts hashing.

Understand, makes sense.

My miners will be staying in a coat closet downstairs adjacent to the garage.  Looking forward to showing y'all pics when I'm done with it.  I think I've pretty much made up my mind on the S4's.  Especially, since they fixed the PSU issue and Slush allows diff setting now.

I also like purchasing from the manufacturer with a good warranty.  Not doubting the Prisma has a good warranty.  I'm sure they probably do.  Going with the S4 now for more familiarity.
