So 1 compac usb stick  from sidehack





If you are overseas  I will spring for the shipping of the compac stick. Note the compact stick is the 1 chip version but as always it is fun to play with it.













Rules







https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1484047.msg14964950#msg14964950

 I am checking this list of rules from older thread

1)you must have been on this site since April 1st 2017  you must have at least 30 posts. --

2)I will check you out if you are new and decide if you can play.
3)you get one play per adjustment. which must be yours alone, in proper format and can not be changed.
4)Do not pick someone else's number If you do I will assign a number and that will not be changed
5) picks start at:

Bitcoin Difficulty:  
Estimated Next Difficulty:  
 
Adjust time:                 Block    1116  
  
Hashrate(?):  
Block Generation Time(?):  
1 block:
3 blocks:

6) picks end at

Bitcoin Difficulty:  
Estimated Next Difficulty:
  
Adjust time:      516

Hashrate(?):  
Block Generation Time(?):  
1 block:
3 blocks:

Yep, BIP148 just locked in and Bitcoin Cash is on its way. I'm curious as to if the Cash split will make total hashrate decrease or if we will continue to see a hashrate increase on the Bitcoin network. I think it'll stagnate somewhat personally.

 Not seeing any significant effect so far - seems like BIP148 isn't very popular among miners, but it's early hours yet, that could change over the next few days.

Miners naturally won't like it as BIP148 was made to keep the miners in track in the first place by orphaning non-SW signalling blocks. It won't really have an impact until a block is orphaned because it didn't signal SW, which is very unlikely.

 Seems like BIP148 is a resounding NONevent - which I seem to recall predicting in a thread or two somewhere 2-3 weeks back or so.

So, do BCC discussions fall into the Alt-Coin area, or are they welcome here?

I am woefully ignorant about anything related to "the fork". Does anybody actually mine specifically on the fork?

 Someone does, but apparently not a lot of folks.

 They were reported to have found their first block early today.

 Bitcoin network hashrate on the other hand didn't even noticeably blip - the current "flat" seems to be that Bitmain got all of their "July" miners shipped and they're now up and running....

Apparently the network hashrate has dropped due to BCH making mining a little more tempting for some- I will personally continue to mine BTC and BTC only but this could change. One big motivator for BCH going up is that you can't even deposit on most exchanges, so price just continues to go up. This will probably be over in a week or two and price will just settle around $200-300.
