Setting up encryption now.. do we cut the appdata files or merely copy them?
I believe the only file that matters is wallet.dat.
Can you short sell bitcoins?
Yes, if you find someone that agrees to your terms and is trustworthy enough.... I once sold an "option" I thin you call it, which basically puts an amount of bitcoins available for the option buyer at a significantly higher price but with a lapse of time (mine was 5 weeks), and on the fifth week, bitcoin rose very quickly. (at the time of transaction, BTC was 0.8$USD and the option was at like 1.2$, and it rose from 1.1-->1.8$ few days before expiration )
Is it still recommended to get bitcoins while its down? Is now a good time?
It would have been better a week ago when it was $10, but I think the price will rise eventually, so you will probably profit.
Like Folding am I going to have to crank up my fan speed or does mining use less GPU power
fan speed should be a bit lower than folding IMO but very close to it =/
you should downclock memory, it actually IMPROVES performance
I can;t downclock my memory i followed the instuctions on the bitcoin forums, re-installed catalyst with only the core drives (no CCC) but still, my memory runs at 1ghz even when changing it in Trixx. I can't use MSI afterburner, Trixx is the only utility that gives me any voltage control.
I can't get Voltage control to work on MSI, but I can downclock... Can't you use MSI just for bitcoins?
i could, but then i'd have to lower my votage and hence my core clock. I'm running at 970mhz for mining atm, i don;t think it'd get nearly that high without changing the voltage
I'm thinking about trying this out, I have a 5970 and just bought a 5870
Is this really legit?
Where can I spend these coins or trade/sell for real world money?
This is what concerns me...
Not saying he knows what he is talking about but Joel does do his homework
Sorry if this has been answered before, I'm interested I just dont know enough to setup and cash in
The link you provided need you to register to view.
So I have a bitcoin client installed but I'm not really sure what to do next, is there an idiots guide to setting up like WCG?
Try going directly to the BitCoin Forums http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php. All the info you need is there. Just do a search within the site.
thanks been reading there all day.... yeah for me I've made 0.050 coins today
At this rate early retirement is around the corner
Mtgox has been compromised !!!
changing passwords just in case atm
Yeah, makes me glad I never made an MtGox account
what about compute4cash, how do they work?
My one bitcoin client is not working the gpu at all, I loaded the c4c client and both cores are at 100% now, even my PSU fan kicked up a few rpms
5970 is getting a workout today
C4C is how I learned about bitcoins.
They pretty much made it easy to mine bitcoins (without telling the worker that they were really just mining bitcoins) and took/take I think about 90% of profits.
As stated, good for beginners. The downside is that they pay you roughly half of what a Bitcoin is worth (from what I've heard) and then sell it on the free market to make substantial profits.
the mtgox problem isn't nearly as huge as ppl make it out to be... at least, now they are upping their security to extremely high lvls o.o
only 1000$ was lost in all, and I'm sure MT paid the guy back, probably with interest as a compensation.
Interesting i hear about bitcoin before month, and i didn't take a wide look for it cuz it's new thing for as but i want ask people who try it just an advice, so let we say i spend money for extreme rig like 2000$ or more, and elcetrisity cost me every 1000w about 20$ in a month, so is this thing worth to do such a move like this.
Thanx a lot
investing in bitcoin rig is risky, and you should only do it if you understand bitcoin and have a bit of experience with it
the one thing you could do is sell your GTX 580 and buy 1 or 2 6990s/6970s and mine with those
It exposed mt.gox's crappy security/technical expertise. It raises the question of reliability and trust of unregulated central exchanges for a decentralized currency. Faith is the only thing that keeps bitcoin afloat and human minds are easy to sway, a string of bad news can easily destroy many's dream of profiting from their brand new mining farm.
