I live in the DC area, looking to sell my mining rig. I'm interested in upgrading my equipment and I don't want this anymore. I've had this for about a month. The GPUs are still working great. One of the GPUs over heats easily but some thermal paste should do the trick (I haven't applied any yet). It's currently averaging 1.5M to 1.7M. This can be bumped up another 100+ hash once thermal paste is applied to the 4th GPU. I like to keep my cards under 80C. Currently uses BAMT 1.3 on a USB stick.

Bitcoin Mining Virus (w/Images) - Report and Questions:
OS: Windows 7 Premium 64
GPU: Nvidia 560 ti
CPU: AMD Phenom 8x
I have recently fallen victim to a virus which I BELIEVE is a bitcoin mining virus that was put on my pc. I don't know where it come from, and I don't know how much information you want, but let me try to describe it as best as I can. I found a very sketchy idling process called smoker_bfg_1zcontrol.exe. This process is running at low usage, ~3,300kb and doesn't do much of anything. This was the first flag to me. After doing a google such for the name I turn up nothing, which typical just rando named viruses. Now what really sets me off: Today I stepped out of my room while playing GW2 and noticed that my GPU usage was sitting at 99%. This struck my as horribly odd, that never happens. I sat down and moved my mouse and it went right back down. I checked MSI afterburner and saw that my GPU ran at 99% load for ~1m 20s. Finally, I knew something was fishy. Before I get into the next part, let me add: This will not happen if I have task manager pulled up. I pulled up resource monitor and let my machine idle again and I found this process that spiked up after smoke_bfg_1zControl chewed up some cpu. This odd process of course committed suicide immediately after I pressed print screen, but that's okay! Gotcha sucker. Now, a final note, I ran MalwareBytes pro and decided I would do a full scan to see if anything showed up: I found this after the scan that was attached to that creepy .exe again! I removed the found viruses, and I'm going monitor it to see if my problems resides, and I'll edit this post with my results, but I made this as a sort of PSA I guess, and just to see if anyone else thinks that my problems will be over, and if this is a bitcoin miner. I don't want people mining for coins I won't get!
I just became 17 years old and I have to admit that cryptocurrency completely changed my life.
You know those events that feel like will have more impact that you know in your life? Well, that exactly what happened to me with crypto. I just turned 17 years old and realized that the discovery of the blockchain has affected my life and caused so many butterfly's effects that I can't even believe it. For context I was a fairly average argentinian boy before I discovered you guys. My family never suffered hunger but we never were (and still aren't) rich. The fear of socialism and becoming the next Venezuela was always there, that's why the second I was browsing trough popular as a 14 year old and found a top post about CryptoCurrency I became instantly addicted to it, when I found out that I could hold this magic internet coin that was called Bitcoin and that I could move it around freely, didn't have to give information to anyone and that me, as a 14 year old could buy is when I fully got into it. I started buying and experimenting, not for the hell of getting rich, but just because I loved the concept, something about permission-less money seemed magic to me. When a transaction arrived to my wallet I knew "this is mine and nobody can't touch it". I felt powerful as fuck. And sure, I fucked up a lot of times, (https://www.blockchain.com/btc/address/12EiYf35g8Xn5wifnzvyj4PYgmJxuDJfa2 was mine and all my savings at that time were on it, till I lost the private key because I was a noobie. I guess you're are all welcome as these Bitcoins will never hit the market again) but I sure learnt from it. I received the Uniswap drop, moons and trough hard DCA buy ins (sometimes I didn't even eat at school just so that I could save the money) I managed to grow a portfolio from the hundreds to recently 5 figures, and I couldn't be happier about it, but that's not the most important aspect of all of this, the thing is that due to discovering crypto I also discovered self improvement. I became confident, I got fit and the most most important thing of all is that I discovered my passion. I found out that I loved crunching the numbers, searching for investing opportunities, calculating rates and everything else. That's why I'm currently working as hard as possible to get a scholarship to study investment banking. And that's the reason I am making this post, to thank you guys. I just woke up and by getting a year older I got the chance to reflect on what I have made and achieved over the recent years and I found out that if it wasn't for you I probably wouldn't be anywhere close to where I am today. Thank you, all of you, Satoshi Nakamoto for creating the most innovative technology of this century, LocalBitcoins for letting me buy crypto as an underage and most importantly thank you CryptoCurrency, because when I didn't even knew what segwit was or how private keys worked you were there for me. You have truly changed my life and helped me find my road in life. I hate to do this but sadly there are a lot of people that post fake stories to get magic internet points and recently moons so I decided to post this image: https://preview.redd.it/vy8w8c157my51.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=80f1014ed6a7e000271579e7f6ee7833c5bdb89d Hopefully it adds some credibility to what I wrote above, thanks for reading!
https://www.wallpaperflare.com/seraphine-seraphine-league-of-legends-k-da-kda-music-wallpaper-ymqqk From the hyperlink above, this image is a character from League of Legends, basically looking for a commission for a wallpaper that'll be very crisp and suitable for an iphone 12 pro max screen size. I'd like the artstyle to look the same as this image if possible, I am not looking for anything too "cartoony" if you know what I mean. I'd also prefer the colors to match the image as much as possible. Somebody suitable with drawing 3D looking artwork is a must. Thanks in advance. Contact me in DM's for payments, availability etc. Willing to pay through paypal or another form of electronic payment providing it's suitable. P.S. I don't have bitcoin or any mining currencies so that's a no go there.
[Spoilers S7] Here's what we know about the state of Earth before the bombs
Here's a compiled list of what Earth was like pre-apocalypse using details from the show. Jason Rothenberg has said if the prequel gets greenlit, he wants to implement a lot of flashbacks LOST style. These flashbacks may include references to the following:
In Monty's video message he said: "After sucking the Earth dry of oil, they [Eligius III] went looking for another planet to tap." [Episode 5x13]
This is presumably why Eligius I (unmanned), II (manned), and IV (prison labor) were sent to asteroids to mine for hythylodium, an incredibly efficient energy source. Hythylodium was used to power the Eligius III and IV missions. [Episode 5x03]
Other energy alternatives are used, such as solar energy (the field of solar panels Jaha and Murphy see in 2x14). And in 6x04, Ryker tells Raven the propellant they use for the motorcycles is "ethanol distilled from Earth corn."
During Josephine's flashback in Boston 2043, a man walks into a diner holding a mask, brushing dust off his shoulders. Josephine's friend also says "It's really dusty outside." You can see multiple people in the diner wearing masks around their neck. [Episode 6x07]
During Josephine's flashback, the guy that commits suicide mentions that she posted about going to a water-rationing protest. [Episode 6x07]
Gabriel says his grandmother's water was cut off in Colombia so the rich could water their lawns. [Episode 7x10]
On Callie's TV, a headline says "Yosemite National Park Burns". [Screenshot] Another headline says: "Deadly Heat Wave". [Screenshot] You can also hear the newscaster mention "above 110 degrees." [Episode 7x08]
On Callie's TV, a headline says "Russian Ankovirus Spreads". [Screenshot] The newscaster mentions the US has declared a public health alert. [Episode 7x08]
Becca says ALIE intends to kill 6.5 billion people to solve overpopulation. She's not trying to kill 100% of the population, so 6.5 billion is not the total population count. [Episode 3x16]
On Callie's TV, a headline says "World's 11 Billionth Child Born". [Screenshot][Episode 7x08]
This is abundant when we look at the technologies developed by just Becca and Eligius, such as large space ships, cryopods, sonic drills, brain chips, ALIE, nightblood, etc.
We also see hologram technology. In 2x16, Jaha first meets ALIE in hologram form. In 7x08, it's used as a telecommunication device when Callie speaks to her father and brother.
On Callie's TV, we see a headline "first human brain transplant successfully performed in Bangalore". [Screenshot] Another headline says "Dubai's Alpha Centauri Group debuts first orbital hotel". [Screenshot][Episode 7x08]
Becca Franko, The Tech Celebrity
She was born in 2025 and went to Harvard when she was 10 years old (2035). [Episode 7x08]
In 2043, she started making tech for Eligius at 18 years old. [Episode 6x01]
She owned her own company. We don't know the name of it but we do know it's corporate logo is an infinity sign and its motto is "Seek Higher Things". [Episode 3x07]
People idolized her. The newscaster on Callie's TV said she had "legions of devotees". In 6x07, Josephine had a magazine with Becca featured on the cover. In 7x08, Reese said "Don't mind my sister. She once dressed as you for Halloween."
She owned her own television network. The channel that Callie was watching on her TV has the infinity sign as its network logo. [Screenshot] The newscaster said "The reclusive billionaire and owner of this network made her last public appearance". [Episode 7x08]
On Callie's TV, a headline says "Stock Market Headed For A ..." and it's cut off. [Screenshot] There's most likely a recession going on and stock markets are crashing. You can also see bitcoin (BTC) is worth 4563.44 (half of what it is today). [Screenshot] Also, on top of the pandemic, huge advancements in AI and technology are most likely disrupting businesses and employment as well. [Episode 7x08]
On Callie's TV, we see a headline "Wyoming joins 32 other states in legalizing the recreational use of psilocybin mushrooms". Shrooms. [Screenshot][Episode 7x08]
Battles in U.S. Cities
The Battle of San Francisco was an armed conflict that Shaw recalls watching on TV as a child. During Diyoza's time in the military, she was one of the soldiers helping the evacuation of thousands of refugees. [Episode 5x07]
Resistance Groups & Terrorism
The United Liberation Army (ULA), was a terrorist group dedicated to fighting against the corrupt government that Diyoza became a part of after the military. The ULA was involved in many terror attacks, including an attack on the 4th of July, 2041 (which they took credit for) that killed 80 civilians in a plane bombing, and a suspected metro suicide bombing in Washington D.C., killing 19 civilians in 2042. [Screenshot][Episode 5x04]
Asteroid Mining Penal Colony
The Asteroid Mining Penal Colony was an off-world penitentiary on the asteroid Proxima 6 that used prison labor to mine for hythylodium. After her arrest in 2043 [Episode 6x07], Diyoza was transported to the colony on Eligius IV.
In 2047, she and the other prisoners learned they were to be abandoned on the asteroid due to getting sick from the hythylodium so they took over the ship, damaging one of it's engines and making the ship significantly slower. It would take 109 years to fly back to Earth. Had the engine not been damaged, it's possible Diyoza and the prisoners could've made it back to Earth before the bombs. [Episode 5x03]
This damaged engine can also explain why it took Eligius IV 75 years to travel to Sanctum, while Eligius III presumably got there in shorter time. [Episode 5x13]
Corrupt U.S. Government
Diyoza says to Clarke "When the fascist government tried to take my home, I wanted blood too." [Episode 5x03]
When Reese mentions Callie dropping out of MIT, she says "Refusing to take part in fascistic regimes is my thing." [Episode 7x08]
On Callie's TV, the newscaster says "... when riot police, on orders from the Wallace Administration, moved in to clear the extreme environmental group known as The Tree Crew." [Episode 7x08]
Callie: "Extreme? What a joke. We were there peacefully. They're the extreme ones."
Lucy: "Don't they know they're defending a system that hurts people like them?"
Callie: People want to believe their leaders are telling the truth, which is why we need to get back there and continue exposing their lies.
The US president at the time of the bombs was a Wallace. In Season 2, Dante says "I love you Cage, and there's been a Wallace in this office since the bombs but if I find out that you're lying there won't be one after me". So most likely the Wallace administration and their family were corrupt. They easily decided to do away with democracy in order to have complete control in Mount Weather. [Episode 2x06]
Russell says to Diyoza in 6x03 "Your face is in our history books next to Hitler and Bin Laden". Eligius took part in federal prison labor, so most likely they had close ties with the government. Fascist governments like to vilify their opponents through propaganda. Even though Diyoza was indeed causing violence, she was probably also used as a scapegoat by the government since she was against them. Even Gabriel said in 7x04, "She was a freedom fighter, not a terrorist".
On Callie's TV, the newscaster says "The 11 billionth baby was born in the Wayne County Internment Camp". Internment camps/concentration camps are "camps where persons are confined, usually without hearings and typically under harsh conditions, often as a result of their membership in a group which the government has identified as dangerous or undesirable." [Source]
On Callie's TV, a headline says "Congress's negotiations on economic relief funds at an impasse amidst violent riots ..." [Screenshot]
Cult Mentality & Conspiracy Theories
In 7x10, Gabriel says to Bill Cadogan "Earth was pretty terrible. But it's good for the cult business, am I right?"
According to this article, Bill grew up in poverty. And Jaha mentioned in 4x03 that Bill's father beat him frequently. Bill, a millennial, says in 7x10 that his first job was flipping burgers, dreaming of the day he'd escape. "There must be more to life than politics, the dying ecosystem, the memes." In times of economic hardship and social upheaval, it's easy for people to latch onto certain beliefs.
Callie says Bill's a vulture capitalist who "traded his precious credibility to become a prophet of doom". She also called him a cultural artifact thief. He found and stole the Anomaly stone from Machu Picchu and in 2042, he started studying it. [Episode 7x08]
It's unknown when Bill founded the Second Dawn, but we know a news article was written about them in 2042, saying that only those with lots of money could "unlock the twelve seals" since it required payments of over $10 million to the cult. [Episode 4x03]
That's what I got. If you spotted anything else from the show, feel free to share! :) Edit: Thanks everyone for the kind words and the awards! Also, thanks to clwrutgers for asking me to make this list.
Why running a Bitcoin node makes you "your own bank" and why you should run one
We have many newcomers and many seems to not understand what a bitcoin node is, what power it has, why it is important to run one, why node decentralization matter much more than anything else. I want to share my opinion on why by running a node, you are indeed your own bank. I invite you to also read this post. It shows how you can represent the Bitcoin network with visual image and it is nice to understand the technical role of nodes in the protocol. I want to focus on my opinion of the banking function of a node here.
What is a Bitcoin node ? What the Bitcoin network does?
A bitcoin node is a peer of the Bitcoin P2P banking network. It is just that but it doesn't tell you much so a better question is : What is a banking network actually ? A banking network is a mesh of banks which can emit, transfer and redeem their IOUs that we call a money. Emition is money creation and each banks may follow certain rules to enable such creation for a customer. A banking network allows the customers to transfer the freshly creates (or received) money (which is bank's IOU) to someone else more or less freely (sometime you can't, KYC, AML stuff...). Transfers are written in a ledger, which is a trusted record maintained someway by all the banks of the exchanges of the IOU and is what makes this kind of IOU so different from others: the mortgagor (custumers of the bank) can ask the borrower (the banks) to transfer the future repayment to someone else so that the mortgagor pay the latter. Cash is one way to make the transfert, wired payment is another. And the banks can just destroy the money by removing it from the ledger, but better not doing it randomly if you want to keep the custumers using your banking nework (that may explain why burning cash is forbidden..) Now the heart of banks policy is this: what truely makes several banks a banking network is the fact that they follow the same rules for money creation, transfer and destruction and they agree on the same ultimate ledger. They are several way to organize such network, lets look at fiat currencies first : In fiat currencies the network is centralized and it may have a kind of fractal structure: the Central Bank manages the currency ultimate ledger but delegate a part of its power (money creation/destruction and transfer) to private banks through law and banking regulation, each of the banks have there own policy, responsibility in money creation and ledger that they delegate to regional banks desk which manage the policy of local banks. Generally, each level has its own ledger and only net settlements are written to the ledger of the level above. Fiat IOU are often represented by numbers written as amount of your bank account or cash (that only the central bank can print). Finally, when money is created in fiat currency, the banks always created an IOU against another debt IOU's (the state and private banks debt for Central Banks, customers for private ones), when redeemed, the banks get back his own IOU and can safely destroy it. We talk about "money based on debt". Fiat currency are today backed by debt. Being fiat rich mean they people have a kind of debt to you a lot (and you may see why inflation is needed in such system since without it, it is impossible to redeem the total of loans interest). During Gold Standard, the Central Bank only created money against gold (but private bank still created money based on debt, this is fractional reserve banking), it was a commodity based money (backed by gold). So now, what about Bitcoin ? It is a P2P banking network. Nodes are the banks and all nodes follow the same rules. However the network is not at all like fiat currencies: it is peer-to-peer, fully decentralized. This means no nodes has more power than any other node and they all keep track of the same ledger (there is no intermediate ledger like fiat). The nodes check that the supply schedule (the money creation part) is correct, all transactions and blocks are valid and propagate them to other peers if it is the case (the transfer function of the banking network). The IOU of this banking network is the bitcoin token.
What makes Bitcoin a banking network ? (and Bitcoin a money)
Now you may say that my story of "bank's IOU is money of the banking network" doesn't fit in Bitcoin since money is never really destroy and no one will give you something in return if you burn them ... but I have a way to look at it that makes it coherent. Bitcoin's token are destroyed when you pay the transaction fees, they disappear from the ledger, transaction fees are indeed not a payment because you don't know who you are paying exactly: the protocol force you to give it to the miner who include your transaction somehow. Against this money destruction, you gain a priority score in the queue to write your transaction in the most secure, replicated, immuable database of the world: the Bitcoin's ledger. Why ? Because we have a rule which say that the miner of a block (which is also like a bank customer who borrows) can claim newly created money at most equal to the new supply schedule of token plus total of transaction fees in the block, so the just destroyed money is immediatly recreated... like any normal bank would wish to do in fact ! In the case of Bitcoin, the money is somehow "hash based" and hash is priced by the network difficulty and priority competition. The banking network exchanges against the hashing power they have to secure the ledger a priority right (incarnated by a bitcoin utxo) with miners to write stuff in the database stored by all nodes that they can transfer if thes wish to do so. The money creation against hashrate is a perfect alignement of incentives: the Bitcoin's banking network creates the money for the ones who make the ledger going forward. You can check in a block explorer that the miners indeed claim the full reward in the coinbase directly, and the raw data of a transaction have no field "transaction fees", they are always equal to the unclaimed (=destroyed) bitcoins in the output of the transaction. So there you have it: a bitcoin node is a peer of the Bitcoin P2P banking network, a monetary network or settlement network (not a payment network like Visa, you can't have a loan with Visa, so it is not a bank). A node follows the protocol rules to ensure the network furfill its function: manage a currency that take the form of electronic cash. A bitcoin node is to Bitcoin what a bank is to fiat currencies network but decentralized and with full powers, that's why we also call bitcoin nodes "full node". That's why you are your own bank when you run a node. That's why you are just a "bank's customer" if you don't. That's why if you don't run a node, you technically don't have a word to say on Bitcoin rules.
What if I don't run a node and mine/own bitcoins ?
You can mine without having a node, you just have to join a mining pool. The pool uses a node to send you validated transactions you include in the block you are currently mining. In that case, you are trusting the node of the pool and have no way to be sure that the node send you the transactions with the highest transaction fees for example: you are a customer of the node mining pool (which is your bank, you don't own it if you don't run your node). This is generally not an issue because the pool is a custodian of mining reward anyway and distribute rewards fairly later, and miners are often running a node for themself too. When you own bitcoin without running your node, you use a wallet software: "something to store your money" and nothing more. You can spend bitcoins using the wallet software. But the sofware must contact a bank (=a node) to receive and broadcast transactions in the monetary network. Owning bitcoin without running a node is like having a bank account protected by your keys at the big Bitcoin bank, you are not the bank itself so some node you are connected to may spy you (chainanalysis electrum servers), scam you (electrum 3.4.1 scam), censor you and you may not follow a valid chain by simply checking proof of work in case of 51% attack.
How to run a node then ?
In Bitcoin, we try to make this task as simple as possible. You only have to install Bitcoin Core, the main node software (home page of this subreddit, right panel for a link). But do your own reaseach on how you must set Bitcoin Core for your need because the Bitcoin blockchain is big and your PC will be working a lot for several week potentially to catch the current state of the ledger. This is a time investment, it is ok if you don't run a node for little amount or if you never transact but running a node will make you learn a lot about Bitcoin. Learn how to use your node to broacast your transactions at least (sendrawtransaction may be your friend here) and notify you when you received money. This way, you are really trusting no one. Some guide exist to install an always online node on a raspberry pi with many useful tools to use it well (RaspiBolt, RaspiBlitz, mynodes ...), if you have skin in the game, those are really cool project which allow you to run a lightning node trustless and many other things ! Enjoy the endless rabbit hole !
