Bitcoin Mining Guide - Getting started with Bitcoin mining

A story from a cloaky camper and an attempt to build a beast mode multi-boxing server.

Hello Nerds!
Some of you may know me, some may not. Those that do will know I offer cloaky camping services over new eden. I do camping contracts / extort renters and focus my time hunting botters when the contracts are quiet. I offer PvP entities access to my cyno network to get dank kills and big escalations. From super carriers to Rattlesnakes.
The thing that got me into camping was hunting bots back in the dronelands a few years ago. I realised the most effective way to hurt them was to camp them 23/7, follow them around using locator agents. Eventually they had to rat with me in system. When they did I setup bubble traps etc and dropped blops and cleaned them up.
The 2nd thing I love about cloaky camping is the ability to counter Alliances (i feel its overpowered) intel channels / networks. Think about it. They have multiple intel toons dotted around the entrances to their pipes reporting hunters coming into the pipe allowing the PvE players to warp off and safe up. They even use external programs to collect this intel and give audible alerts. Cloaky camping is just the polar opposite. Dotting toons in their ratting pocket and giving me intel on whats going on in their system. As long as local chat exists so will cloaky camping. I'm pretty confident CCP share the same thought.
People probably think cloaky camping is easy. You are wrong. The prep work and behind the scenes work that goes into it is pretty immense. You are about to find out.
The hardware i'm currently running the 60 clients on is as follows:
Camper1: Screenshot of 30 Clients Layout
How do you pay for 60 toons
I started with 10 campers and made ISK by other means. When I made new campers I invested ISK and started to Skill extract and plexing the toons. I also make a decent amount from people who pay me to camp others.
The Setup  
I manage the clients window positions and CPU allocation with ISBOXER. Its legal to use as long as you don't use input broadcasting. I boot up the clients with ISBOXER EVE Launcher. I copy the window positions / chat channels etc over using garpaui. I use remote desktop to manage the clients light cynos etc.
Example here
On both motherboards I had to under clock the processors as they were drawing too much power from the motherboard and causing the chipset to overheat. I think these motherboards are not beefy enough to support these 8 core processors. It caused the CPU to throttle reducing the clock speeds to 1.3Ghz and causing lag issues. I solved this problem by reducing the clock speed from 4Ghz to 3.6Ghz and reducing the CPU voltage. This reduced the heat by a really good amount and stopped the problems.
However, Me being me I wanted to expand and the camping pcs were running at full chat. So I needed a better piece of hardware to host these 60+ clients. So, while at Fanfest, I bidded on this R820 Server on ebay and won!
The hardware should be able to support multiple clients. However i'm not too sure how eve is going to behave when I try and open 60 instances all in one OS. I have set myself up for a hell of a challenge! However, I feel like I got a pretty good deal on the server and DELL hold their value. I'm sure I can re sell it if the project fails.
Things to work out:
Things I will teach you guys
I'm learning too so your help input would be awesome! First question. Shall I just update this reddit post each time or create some sort of blog?
Old AMD FX Rigs
New Kit / with various bits I gathered to get started
Update 23/04/18
I have made some decent progress on this crazy project. I will give some breif updates here. I will get a blog up and running to post full details with how to's etc. Its probably way to long for reddit.
I have successfully installed some GPU's into the R810 AMD R9 280x and Nvidia GTX 970. I soldered some PCI-E cables to the PDB and it worked fine. The GTX sits nicely in the chassis however, the R9 280X is external atm using a PCIE x1 to x16 riser (from my bitcoin mining). Also I have managed to enable and use them both with passthrough in ESXI 6.5. Yes the GPU works with a x1 adaptor. WTF!
Freezing Problem with a single os install
If I try and run more than 40 clients in a single OS I the system freezes when loading up client 41. I have tried the following:
I cannot see why it is freezing. Is there any way to gather logs for the client? It doesn't appear to be a resource problem. Plenty of RAM / CPU and HDD isn't going crazy.
Here are some pics of the current progress:

-Limits risk and cost of equipment failure, and associated down time due to failures
-Saves shipping costs for heavy PSU's to and from hosting location for duration of your contract
-No equipment depreciation
-Helps eliminate ownership problems associated with Group Buys, when more than 1 member shares purchase price of PSU to host together
-All maintenance, replacement, shipping, setup, and lost revenue from down-time due to PSU failure is my responsibility
Please contact me for details.
Shipping will be calculated individually, to make sure you are getting the best rate. All prices are in USD. I am willing to accept escrow through OGNasty, and can also do Paypal but buyer will be responsible for covering costs of either services (4% added to paypal, OG charges 1% for escrow).
Each package of PSU, breakout board & 10x PCI cables is approximately 16 lbs.
The BTC address for all non-escrow breakout board orders is here: 1GWQYCv22cAikgTgT1zFuAmsJ9fFqq9TXf I will not PM you asking for payments to any other address, so beware of F1nksy, Fink5y, or whatever scammy names might pop up.
Original Post:
Hi everyone,
I am the official North American distributor of Break-out boards for the IBM 2880W Bladecenter H PSU's, which are 80+ platinum rated (94%+ efficient) Edit: UN-VERIFIED AT THIS POINT and have provision for 22x PCI-E cables. Unlike other server boards, these don't rely on screw-down terminals and bare wires which can get loose and spark causing fire hazards, and limit the exposure of live contacts to surfaces above and below the PSU. Instead these use a double-sided PCI 6 pin cable, which only cost about $0.10 more than the standard PCI-6 to bare wire versions. Also, unlike the DPS-2000BB -which is the next largest server PSU available for miners- these have fans already built-in, so don't need extra work to set up up and deploy.
The PSU's themselves are available on e-bay and elsewhere (I sell them as well), and the boards will be priced at US $70 $65 each (better pricing for bulk purchase, volume structure will be the same as J4bberwock's). Each PSU can handle 2x Antminer S7's, 3x SP20's, 5 Antminer S5's, or 8 Antminer S3's. You won't find better value for power, and there are very few ATX-based PSU's that provide 80+ platinum efficiency (and none for under $200 for even 700-800 watts). Edit: UN-VERIFIED AT THIS POINT Lastly, unlike ATX-based PSU's, these can be run at (and I have found even over) their rated power, as they were designed that way for server use. They do, however, require 240V input. Also, running these over at over 90% load will give you slightly decreased efficiency, and could affect their reliability.
I have personally taken 3x SP20's to settings around 960 watts (at ports, not at wall) each for approximately 2 weeks, and the PSU drew 13.41 amps (@ 235 volts - 3150 watts @ wall). So at absolute full load (or possibly over), these will still hold over 90% efficiency. Very impressive, and I will be testing different fans to reduce sound for home mining (fans on these PSU's are slightly louder & higher pitched than SP20 fans). Sloopy informed me that he ran 11x Antminer S3's on a PSU for a while (over 3,300W DC!), but that is certainly not recommended, and will eventually cause the PSU to fail. It is simply a testament to how tough these PSU's truly are, and that spikes over their rated output shouldn't affect performance.
Here are some pictures:
Feel free to contact the developer of these boards if you have any concerns, he will verify that I am authorized to sell these.;u=206446
Here is the spec sheet with efficiency rating:

I will honour a 10-day return/exchange for PSU's or Boards that are DOA. However, these PSU's are used and although I try to briefly load test them all before sending them out, it is impossible to predict failures. As such, no warranty will be offered beyond what was previously mentioned. If you are looking for more peace of mind, please feel free to source PSU's yourself either new or used.

Grayblock - INT Thearchy Node Candidate
Who we are
We are a diverse group with backgrounds in Research and Technology, Engineering, Server Administration and Supply Chain, with a combined 7 years of experience in mining/node building and maintenance to carry us into the next era of blockchain technology. We are a team that shares a passion for blockchain technology and it’s application in the future.
We see the Internet of Things (IoT) as being the ultimate manifestation of this technology. With IoT growing at an exponential rate through the next decade and beyond, we wish to be an enabler for mass adoption by making this technology easy to understand and by helping those that wish to get involved.
We see INT as the leader in this space by marrying the vision of world-encompassing connectivity with the power of blockchain in a framework that enables the fast-paced and diverse ecosystem of IoT. Their Correct-By-Construction, use case driven approach to building a network to support the intended uses and needs of the future IoT ecosystem sets them apart from the others. We hope to be a part of the revolution by supporting the network, getting involved and working together to make a different world.
Why we want to be involved
We believe in blockchain technology and it’s impact in our future. We believe IoT to be the ultimate culmination of this, with it becoming integral to the very fabric of our society.
What therefore lies before us is a revolution by which everything from financial systems to data communication will transition to immutable and trustless blockchains. We want to be a part of the change.
Bitcoin and blockchain technology, in general, have become more widely known words in the world recently but an understanding of what it is past the get-rich-quick speculative nature of them is lagging behind. We realize that a major hurdle in real adoption is people understanding the technology, making it not a fringe subject but something everyone can understand and be a part of.
Our plan to support
In addition to supporting the network as a Thearchy node and block producer, we see an equally important responsibility in educating people about INT, IoT and blockchain technology in general, sharing our passion with others.
We plan to become more active in the space, speaking at community blockchain meet-ups and cryptocurrency conferences both locally and abroad to bring attention to what INT is doing and to build an understanding of the technology they offer. We will also continue to provide easy to understand articles like we currently produce here and herewhile also maintaining the core of what got us here, our love for helping people build mining rigs and set up nodes. We want to get people involved, help them understand the technology and spread the excitement for the future.
Thearchy — Block Producing Node
We do not anticipate heavy use on the network on launch as most users generate private keys and transfer tokens into the network. During this time, we will be running our initial Thearchy block producing node in a cloud-based environment in North America. This gives us the ability to quickly scale and satisfy the immediate demands of the network. As we do additional software and hardware testing and the requirements become better understood, we will move to assembling purpose-built servers for the future co-located data center to support the INT ecosystem.
Cloud-based environment:
OS: Linux
vCPU: 8
Memory: 32 GB
Blockchain Storage: 640 GB
IPFS Storage: 1 TB
Again, these specs are just for launch and the initial testing. Once the network has established itself and the true computing needs have been determined, we will build dedicated servers locally to support the network.
Backup Nodes
To ensure that we are ready for any disruptive incidents, we will maintain a secondary, stand-by Thearchy node mirroring the live one, ready to be launched at a moments notice. At launch, these will be maintained as cloud-based environments matching the above specifications but hosted by different providers to ensure full redundancy in the event of service downtime. Once we move to bare metal servers, we will maintain this redundancy by geographical separation.
Validator Nodes
We also plan to launch several publicly available, non-block producing validator nodes to help support the network. These will also be cloud-based to have the ability to separate them geographically while still being able to control them. This enables us to serve the network globally.
Keeping in mind the network securing responsibility these nodes will have, we will employ the highest security standards available on all nodes, block producing and not. .
Using public key authentication along with physical two-factor authentication, access to the servers will be restricted to only those with the private keys, both physically and digitally.
Developing Tools
In the future, we would like to get involved in the development of the INT ecosystem and build tools to make the interaction with the network easier. These may be snapshot tools to assist in token/ICO distribution, wallets, Dapps or blockchain explorers to add value and give back to those that are working to make a different world.
We will be releasing a roadmap with a detailed phasing plan as we get a more detailed timeline on INT’s release. Keep an eye on our website for more information on our work with the INT network.
If you would like to support us in supporting the INT network, vote for us! INT1NNTpagq79v9ZHJBSGmSevEtsUXSGnLJvX

Hash Together is looking for hashing team members

Hey, this is to gauge interest in a partnership. Hash Together is a close small group of individuals who are pooling our mining profits together to purchase mining hardware.
Essentially you will run NiceHash Miner with our bitcoin address, which allows us together to more quickly buy gear with our combined profits instead of say, spending your upfront overhead and trying to ROI (difficult!).
For example, if you mine $50/month for three months with your home rig, we will put that $150 towards an additional mining rig. All profits of the rig will be split up between the group based on how much you contributed by mining with your rig. In this case, you would make 15% of the profits from a $1000 mining rig for as long as you keep your portion in the pool.
If this sounds like a group you would be interested in joining, please message me with your system specs, approximate $/day potential with NiceHash Miner, and any other questions you may have.

Been scammed here, sadly...

Hey /Jobs4Bitcoins ,
so as some of you know I posted on the subreddit few weeks ago this ad [Hiring] VR experiment for Google Chrome & Cardboard (Three.js + PmWiki interface) . I was excited by this project and thought "Heck I don't really know how to do it but I know how I want it to look, best excuse to try to delegate and this using Bitcoin!".
I post some little spec, I receive an answer from conizer14 who seem as excited as I am about webVR. We discuss a bit about features, I show him some old related code, he shows me a webVR demo he did and I tell him I will contact him back when I write down some proper specifications. Fast forward a week I finally come back with understandable specifications, he agrees to them, to the deadline, to the amount.
He suggests as 35% pre-payment which for this kind of project and the workload required seems reasonable for me. I accept, transfer 0.2BTC to 1C2oJ37iBykep3UMzb6Zzd4LhbzfZffm43 as he asked, he asks for a bit more saying it would help for his mining rig, I accept paying 50% totalling up to 0.5BTC. I used escrow before but since we agreed on prepaying and transfer the rest upon completion I didn't think it was required.
We both go back to our lives except ... 1 week later no first preview, 2 weeks later no prototype, a day before deadline nothing, not even a reply. I use the portfolio DNS information to find his email and phone number, I contacted on elance (similar location, similar pseudonyme, similar skillset), email, SMS, no reply. I also found his Skype account Johnny.m421 but not having it and since nothing else worked at this point point I didn't even try it (you can though if you want ;).
Frustrated I explained my case to matthew_boyd while proposing to wait before taking action (ban) as I was still having a bit of hope a month ago. Now I have none left so the only thing that can bring some peace is to tell my story here. It's not to complain as much as to warn others. I'm glad also theoretical posts like Recent scamming on Jobs4Bitcoins. are there but personal stories help too.
Upside of this is that I'm now not just learning ThreeJS/WebVR myself but organizing a WebVR workshop! :D
I truly believe Bitcoin as a currency (or rather as a system) has incredible value but the amazing energy and positivity of the community shouldn't make us less wary of participants to transactions. I used /Jobs4Bitcoins/ several times under several accounts and every single time successfully, both to get a job done and to get paid. Unfortunately this was not one of those. Maybe more complex and heavy on usage systems like /Bitrated/ (I'm on it too) or /OpenBazaar (tested a beta) but they won't be magical either... I'll keep talking about Bitcoin and emergent marketplaces around me but of course I'll have to present both sides of the coin.
That's it, be safe out there!
