    Bitcoins Basics

    Bitcoins is a new virtual or electronic currency created in 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto. It was developed on a peer to peer network so that rather then have a government or central bank look over all the transactions the network polices itself based on its members. The larger the network the more secure it is. The transactions become common knowledge to the system. You are assigned a encryption code and which you then use to send and receive money. Once money has been sent or received, the networks sends you multiple confirmations to show the network has recorded the transaction.


    This virtual currency may be a new concept to you, but to those mining bitcoins all over the world, it is more than just a passing fad


    Any donations are greatly appreciated

    Bitcoins Mining

    Initially Bitcoins mining was done by your cpu when you downloaded the initial Bitcoins software. The whole purpose was to reward you every time you finished a block. You recieve 50 coins for every block. The blocks are encryption to ad security to Bitcoins so you are being paid in Bitcoins to build the system. as the complexity goes up the bounty goes down as adding to an already very complex system is not as valuable. Bitcoins mining has made the largest peer to peer network in the world with more computing power then the largest super computer. The average CPU is now too small to make an effect on the system in your lifetime so the effect of just downloading the Bitcoins software and to begin mining is minimal at best.

    Bitcoins Mining Evolution


    Bitcoin mining has changed as the power of the average CPU is too small to effect the system or “mine”. So software has been developed to use the Graphics Processing Unit or GPU. The specialized software allows the peer to peer network to use your GPU to add the encryption. You are then rewarded with Bitcoins. Do to how they are made ATI’s graphics cards are much preferred over Nvidia’s. Miners have setups that link many graphics cards together in order to increase the value of their mining operation. The more computing power, the more they are rewarded. Eventually mining Bitcoins will cost more in hardware and electricity then it is worth. But the sheer volume of people in the peer to peer network will make up for the lack of a true commercial “miner”.

    Bitcoins Mining Pools


    Bitcoins mining was started as a solo endeavor but the rewards were then spread out a period time with a single miner lucky if he hit a Bitcoins cache every few weeks on average. So again software developers came up with an idea. Pool the miners together so that they would be rewarded more often and in equal shares to the computing power that they added to the pool. Some pools take a small fee for setting it up and others are free. For a while one large pool was over 50% of the total mining capacity. This was not considered a good thing by many as they would have the data of half the blocks and thus a possible security leak (See Bitcoins Security). This has since been resolved. There are several strategies and ideas behind different Bitcoins mining pool.

    Any donations are greatly appreciated

    Do you have any faith that the people who own a lot of the market aren't just going to eventually dump all their bitcoins once it gets to a high enough price?

    NO ONE can laugh this off - only fools.

    This new offering is like Google Stock and has been around for some time, many did not know about BTC

    I found it funny to read on this forum how many are running "projects" on CL and other sites "fiverr" and have not spoken about BTC (bitcoins) for months now.

    yes do read the forum
    forum*bitcoin*org

    unlike this forum, I can not post links here....lol

    Ask anyone with a degree in economics and they will explain in great detail why Bitcoin is doomed to fail, even if it isn't made illegal in most of the world before then.

    And please, nobody quote my post and be like 'ZOMG SHUTUP NOOBZ BITCOIN IS 4 LYFE!!!1!1!1!one!1!haxbbq!1!' because it's honestly not worth my bandwidth responding.

    However, if you genuinely think otherwise and have a solid argument worth posing, I'm gladly up for a debate!

    I'm really on the fence about the whole thing. I think the idea of peer to peer currency is fantastic. Taking control away from government is simpy amazing and should be pursused. I don't see how it will fail really. The only reason things are valuable is because people have faith in them. You can't eat gold, you can't hunt with gold. But people have faith in it and it is scare and so it has value. The same thing is true with bitcoin. All it needs is a large community (which it has) to continually support it and make it better (which they are) to keep it going and gaining value everyday (which it is).

    Obviously, my lack of knowledge is demonstrated by stating a simple fact - widely accepted by anyone with a background in genuine economics.

    Hell, even ignoring these aspects, once/if Bitcoin ever becomes powerful enough as a currency to warrant attention from any serious corporations or companies with enough monetary power and wanted to destablise the economy, cluster mining and mass selling utilising any of the NUDT YH Cluster/TC3600 Blade/Cray XT5(/XE6)/whole host of others would cause panic buying and basically torpedo the market in the space of a few days.

    And likewise, thanks for the laugh my friend

    EDIT: Can't help but wonder why someone with such a strong economic background is requesting donations either...

    EDIT2: Also like to point out that I think the Bitcoin concept is a brilliant concept - but while it is theoretically excellent, with many, many benefits - this does not mean that it is destined to replace our currently severely flawed world currency system...

    Regards,
    I've already researched quite heavily into this subject, as I'm sure you have too.

    As your thread is about Bitcoin mining rather than starting a debate over the future of the currency I'll stop hijacking your thread and leave it here.

    Genuinely, I would love Bitcoin to succeed, as it would be a much better theoretical currency system than what we rely on at the moment, however, my personal views is that it will not work in practice when used longitudinally.

    Never the less, I actively encourage anyone with an interest in the currency to accept it and encourage it's trade, as this is one factor which will ensure it's stablisation as a genuine market economy.

    All the best,
    ~ JFoulds

    Bitcoin is an interesting concept and it will be interesting to see how it fairs. There are two big worries that any investor or user must account for in dealing with bitcoins at this point. The first being a potential speculative bubble that might be forming in the short term due to all of the media attention it is receiving. The second is potential long term deflation (since there is a cap on supply) that could potentially hurt it should it ever get to a large enough scale to be a competitive currency.

    I really doubt anyone actually believes bitcoin would take over global currency. Since there is a set limit on how many bitcoins can be created, which is the reason they have value. I think it was 270,000,000 that can be created? I'm not sure. But the great thing about this open source type of currency is that it will pave the way for other genius ideas which will eventually enable peer to peer currency to take over the world. Let us hope this becomes reality. So everyone should support that aspect of what this is accomplishing, even if they don't like what bitcoin does or is doing.

    start thinking about a bank to deposit your money into after you send a donation, that is if you have a mining setup config.

    I started this post to find other miners, however it seems new to most.

    It seems as if in the last 48 hours, bitcoin currency or coins went from being worth $28 a coin down to $15, that is a huge drop in 48 hours. I dont see how this can hang on and who designates how much a coin is worth? How would you even know if the price is going to rebound and and up back at $28?

    yeah it's pretty crazy but interesting as well. it will indeed go up again. in just the last few days it has risen from $17 (that was the price on thursday I believe) to $28. now it's down to $15.

    supply and demand. if more people are selling it into the market. it's going to cost less. if more people are buying from the people supplying, it's costing more.

    where do you find a bitcoin miner? or is that just in the regular bitcoin program? they said it wasnt on the download page, although the block number in the bitcoin program is going up. Does that mean it is mining?

    There's people out there with ~300,000 bitcoins. Do a G search for "The Bitcoin Triples Again"

    To clarify, the price is not designated by any central body. It is like the price of anything you buy or the price of one currency in another- the price is determined by what the market is willing to pay for it.

    Does anyone know of hosting companies that offer servers with decent graphic cards? I am interested in this but don't want to turn my house into a giant heater.

    Where would you sell bitcoins? Where would you use this currency to buy products?

    I downloaded the bitcoin software and it kept building the blocks - 120061 blocks i see here and about 10-100 connections at anytime.

    But, I have seen no growth in the number of coins. It is still 0. What is wrong here? Do I need something else to get more coins? I thought we needed to build only 50 blocks to earn 1 bitcoin?

    LOL People throwing the word Economics around makes me laugh when there is no such thing. Much like people studying 'Business Ethics' when in the business world, ethics can't possibly exist.
