There's still the discussion wether the ponzi's that collapsed in recent days were doing fractional reserve mining or no mining at all. First clue is that their demise most probably did not make a big dent in the global hashrate.

I told you so, we have an avalanche of collapsed ponzis Wink btw if they were really mining the miners would be not affected and working as usual.

I like this thread, thank you Puppet

Zeushash has stopped Mh/S Scrypt as the fees are more than the earnings as they are using Gridseeds etc. everyone that had Scrypt at Zeushash has lost their investment, me included

Where is that news that Zeus stopped MH/s Scrypt? I can still see the possibility to buy MH/s on their website, both as such and in 'TwinHash'?

That's because the hashrate was fake.

Worst thing so far, they will not all explode before Bitcoin resumes expansion and your sites will still be filled with shitty scammy adverts for cloud hashing.

case and point - do not buy cloud mining. Period. Ever. Just save your bitcoins, buy physical miners if you like, and WORK for your money. Create real value for society. Cannot get something for nothing, do not let ANYONE convince you to part with your money.

You are better off refusing to participate in cloud mining, buying BTC directly, and pressuring ASIC manufactures to lower prices and behave more responsibly.

Here are ways you should store your bitcoins :

I sure have.
I own a non trivial amount of bitcoins, most of which in a cold wallet.
