Who's still mining or at least trading?


Recommended Posts

Havent done anything in forever...sitting on my fraction of a bitcoin that I mined on a 280X. Depending what happens to the value I may be able to buy something useful with it at some point.

Does newegg still accept btc? Do they rip you off if you pay that way, or are you better off going through coincards? Any other options?

@Bond007 New egg is not bad price wise on btc, never had any issues with them and buying with cryto. Bylls is another option over coincards but find them a little iffy on pricing. but they are Canadian and the owner does use this forum under another name but I will not call him out haha

Any idea what would work out to a better rate, generally speaking, between the 3?

Bylls is awesome. The price may sometimes 'look' iffy... but smokes coincards actual rate. Did some 1 to 1 comparison and Bylls was typically 3 or more percent better rates. Plus its fiat, not GCs like coincards. PLUS no tax on the order like with Coincards which just smacks of double dipping. With bylls the rate is the rate. No BS. No need to use a 1 or even 5 block transfer. As long as it shows up in the bitcoin system within 15minutes (with zero confirms just that it is in the queue) you are good to go.

Good to know...maybe I am out of the loop on some terms, but "fiat"? Only the cars comes to mind.

I could never get any responses from Bylls when I tried to use them a year and a half ago, whereas I never had any issues with Coincards and they've changed their fee to a flexible amount that you can offer to pay and they can say yes/no. Also never noticed any tax on Coincards either, must have been when I was dealing with them.

Haha, fixing the typo but I'll leave your quote as proof.

    • The all new Crucial X6 may not win any awards for sheer speed (as it is SATA and not NVMe based) nor for having the lowest asking price in the market… and certainly no awards for being the most robust; but those are about the only major negatives we can think of. This is a rather flexible, predictable, and not overly expensive model that we can see making waves in a corner of the market that has become rather saturated of late. That in and of itself is impressive.   Read the full review below  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/crucial-x6-2tb-external-ssd-review/  
    • Taken as a whole, if you are not impressed by what Seagate was able to do… you have not been paying attention. It may not be flashy, it arguably is not being marketed optimally, and certainly is not a ‘revolutionary break through’ we have come to expect, but this new gen is a great evolution to an existing foundation. A firm foundation that has been further refined, and this refinement does pay tangible dividends. As such, if you can afford the asking price the Seagate IronWolf Pro 18TB easily justifies its professional moniker and its asking price – and then some. For those that cannot? Fear not, the release of this 18TB capacity model also means eventual price adjustment(s) to the smaller capacity models… and they are not chopped bits of mystery meat either – especially when they get 2TB platter tech in the future.       https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/seagate-ironwolf-pro-18tb-review/
    • We are surprised on what this little guy can do. Check out our full review of the Crucial X8 2TB below!       https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/crucial-x8-2tb-external-ssd-review/
    • This is honestly the perfect thing for people who love having a little personal flair in their bedroom, or on their desk. Overall it’s a solid buy especially as gift if your willing to put some money behind it. If your looking for something cheaper they do offer smaller and cheaper versions in their pixel art series that you can buy.     Read the full review here    
    • The LaCie 2Big RAID going to be right for every customer and every possible scenario? Of course not. Not everyone needs the flexibility a dual bay D.A.S has to offer. Not everyone will be able to get over toting around this much added weight. Not everyone will like the lack of daisy chaining abilities. Others still will prefer to spend the same amount of money on 1Big Dock and get more features at the expense of RAID abilities. For security conscious professionals, the lack of a lock on the drive caddies will be a major turn off. As such not everyone will be able to justify the asking price. Those that do will however love what it this model can do. It really can offer desktop levels of capacity without the weight of the typical tower PC, and can even offer decent data redundancy/protection with only a moderate performance hit.     Check our full review below.  Read the Full Review
