It's possible... I didn't find anything though.

Besides, it never hurts to have an updated poll that all us newbies can participate in as well.  Smiley

I'm generating around 50/day, but I'm selling off every 200-300 to ensure that my hardware is all paid off rather than holding it for speculation.  Depending on difficulty jumps, all my 5 rigs should be paid for in about 5 weeks.

I'm still unsure about what the difficulty change will be AFTER this one due to the OCN thread causing a big spike in computing power during this difficulty, which is already starting to die down.  The damage has already been done by it regarding the next jump, but I have a feeling the following jump will be minor (< 5%), or even a drop.

What if the difficulty goes through the roof, and you have sold all of your bitcoins to pay for your rig? Then you'll just be left with a bunch of video cards and nobody to sell them to Tongue

I suggest you hold on to them for at least a few more months.

I think you should also write 'You're lying!' next to the '0-10' option.

I have one of the following amounts:

152.73
1527.31
15273.19

Well you can certainly discuss bitcoin here  Cheesy

Just a suggestion, if you're just here for the mining, take a few minutes to read over what bitcoin is and why it's so good - odds are you probably will want to actually use it rather than just mine Smiley

Oh, no I'm not here just for mining. I think the entire idea is great. My dad is just a little skeptical. He wories about the legality and also thinks it is a sort of get rich quick scheme. I think it is great to have a currency that is not goverment controlled especialy the way the US has been managing the money supply.

Your dad is a wise man--BitCoin itself is supposed to be a currency, not a moneymaker.  The real work of growing the BitCoin economy requires people to build businesses and earn wages in bitcoins.  People making money in mining or speculating right now are just profiting off of being ahead of the curve.  It's still a long, hard road before BitCoin becomes stable and established.  There's no such thing as free money!

Well, I just want to use it as a way to pay off the difrence between my current grafics card and a 5770. It would not take that long to get that many bitcoins if running 24/7.

Currently 20 and a bit in my wallet. Besides my 0.05 from the faucet, all of it is from mining on the 6990 I bought less than a week ago mostly for that purpose (but also because it's awesome).

0.05. Cheesy I don't have any equipment to mine with and they're surprisingly difficult to buy if you don't have PayPal, so...

Offer something against bitcoins. Goods or services ;-)

This should probably be more Gaussian, but I'm putting it out anyway as a thought experiment:

1 person, Satoshi, has a million BTC
10 have 100.000 BTC (2 MIO total)
100 have 10.000 BTC (3 MIO total)
1000 have 1.000 BTC (4 MIO total)
10000 have 100 BTC (5 MIO total)
100000 have 10 BTC (6 MIO total)

1 + 10 + 100 + 1 000 + 10 000 + 100 000 = 111 111 users

1 + 10 + 100 + 1 000 + 10 000 + 100 000 = 111 111 users

Very interesting... I wonder how well that would actually match up with the real-world statistics.

Bitcoin is whatever the market decides it is.

The real work of growing the BitCoin economy requires people to build businesses and earn wages in bitcoins. 

Even if Bitcoin was used purely as an investment vehicle it could still become a large and sustainable economy in its own right.

Yes there is.  Every time anyone in history has managed to raise productivity simply by doing things more cleverly, new wealth was created without the need for extra work. This new wealth is effectively free money emerging out of thin air.  Bitcoin is one such example.

I got lucky and minted a block of 50 about a week ago.  I don't expect that to happen again soon, but it was pretty exciting!

I'm wondering how many to keep and how many to let go.  Do I understand right, that for my minted coins, on the ones I spend and release into the market, I collect any transaction fees on my coins as they are spent through the economy?
