Remember to withdraw your coins in time for the annual Proof of Keys!

https://www.proofofkeys.com/


Thanks for the heads up. Would I need to withdraw them from an exchane like coinbase snd transfer to my blockchain wallet?

The idea is to collect your coins from any places where you don't control the private keys, to wallets where you do.

There are some wallet suggestions at https://bitcoin.org/en/choose-your-wallet

When you click on one, you can see whether it allows you to control your own coins. Some wallets have a green dot next to "Control over your money" and if you click that, it shows "This wallet gives you full control over your bitcoins. This means no third party can freeze or lose your funds. You are however still responsible for securing and backing up your wallet."

When you hold your own coins yourself, you have to protect them from hackers and make sure you have backups. A hardware wallet can help in case your PC gets hacked.

The advantage is that you actually have your coins. Maybe your coins are held today by the next mtgox disaster. Maybe they already lost your coins, they just haven't told you yet?

Finally that long round is over. Thanks a lot to skywise who found the block!

Apologies for the delay in BTC payouts this time. Prepay users have now been paid and the countdown for confirming the block is now showing correctly at https://bitminter.com/blocks - everyone not using the prepay perk will be paid as soon as the block confirms, as usual.

Since when did the VPN access become blocked? Especially since BitMinter is promoting use of VPN, albeit from another provider.

This network was blocked because of the amount of spam coming from them. I've removed the block - try it again now.

Thank you. It's working for me now. Spam is an inherent problem with any VPN, which affects the legitimate VPN use.

And pity about the tale block Cry
I was hoping to get the credit for the January through March work effort, before turning the rig off for the warm months (it's basically only on during the colder months as an alternative to the 1000W electric panel oven). Hopefully another block turn up soon while some of the later shifts are still eligible for pay.

DrHaribo, is your pool Asic Boost enabled? Only asking because I running VH’s gekkoscience optimised cgminer and everytime I try and enabled the asic boost for my newpacs it runs into problems.

Nice little unexpected block, cool! Good work tinozolli! Grin
Takes the sting out of the £700 odd pounds worth of BTC spent at Scan Computers earlier.
Ending the day with more BTC than I had, and a free computer thrown in :-D
Now, whether or not to splash out on another miner to get the hash rate up a bit Huh
