Those were the days, 25 BTC blocks (even though BTC was only worth $250 each) and only 102B to solve a block. 
Well if we're going to compare... I can remember 50BTC blocks, $3 BTC and 30 million diff.  Undecided

Wasn't it in 2011 when the difficulty broke 1M?  I seem to remember allot of people saying they were quitting because it wouldn't be profitable to mine anymore.
Actually you're right, I recall the diff being even lower but btc was $30 at the time. It went down while I was mining. I think diff was around 600k when I first started mining (June 2011).

I wonder how many BTC are lost forever due to people losing their old wallets?

Allot!  The first time Bitcoin hit $1200 a guy was digging up a landfill because he through out his old laptop which had 7,500 BTC on it.

I just wish I had the Bitcoin back that I wasted on the early ASIC's.  13.48 BTC for a Jalapeno, ouch.

I just checked the diff at the time I first joined bitcointalk and started mining and it was 555k. ~1 million times less than it is today. My first miner was a 220MH GPU. I was earning about 40x what an avalon7 earns today with that hashrate.

Last I checked, this was the BITCOINtalk forum and you're in the BITCOIN mining section, so no, not sha256, but BITCOIN ONLY.

Yep those were the days.  I just retired my mining turned gaming GPU's, 5830 and 5770, in the last couple weeks.  It was really sad putting them back in their boxes.  But they had a really good run of mining and then gaming, almost 6 years of service.

Now I am confused. Do I have this set right on Nicehash?
You can choose any algo from the drop down box. I have it set to sha256 and pointing at CK.

Some other currencies use the algorithm SHA256 and not just bitcoin. -ck meant that the pool only supports bitcoin mining, and won't work for other SHA256 currencies. There are also other currencies that use other algorithms like Litecoin, which uses Scrypt (again not supported by the pool).

Looks correct to me.

Just a little thing, would it be possible to format the stats with commas?  Just makes it easier to look at with numbers in the billions.

Good luck VT!

I know Bitcoin has changed.  Unfortunately,  I feel for the worse.  I don't think the pioneers created bitcoin just for the rich and wealthy.  that's what fiat is for!  

As -ck said at one time Bitcoin was $3.  I was an avid overclocker back in 2010-11, so I would reformat my hard drives for running benchmarks.  at that time I had multiple 5870 cards.  2 for me 2 for my son.  I had 2 more 5870 just for hardware reviews for websites.  I remember reformatting a drive with at least 30-35 (maybe more) bitcoins.  Why?  It was different back then....they were $3-$5.  Do you have any idea how sick I've been since Nov 13?  That's why I pull for the little guys.  No offense to the big farms out there.

I only posted when I thought the (little guy) had hit a block.  Not knowing they hit multiples.  Let's see be happy for someone hitting their first....or a corp like Bitm...  


oh here's another one I found looking for old wallets.

If you still have the drive and haven't used it much it's possible you can do recovery.  Look into it.

Unfortunately recovery is expensive and if you give it to a company or even a douchebag friend they could take it for themselves and leave you with absolutely nothing. Chances are it's gone forever but it's worth trying yourself with just basic tools.

Coming at about the rate you'd expect for only 1.11PH... that hashrate will only find a block every ~24 days on average. Want to see blocks fall faster? Find a couple of hundred PH and mine here.
