UASF nodes leveling off….BAD


UASF nodes leveling off….BAD

Amid suggestions of "modify BIP148 to an earlier date"

NO

This is a numbers game. The bigger the August 1st guillotine is (node count) the less chance the miners have to fuck us around.

Consider:

There are ~1000 UASF nodes right now set to chop the head off any miner who dares to mine a non-SW block on or after Aug 1st.

A few of them leave to start enforcing different rules?

All that means is we have fewer nodes in what is currently the most effective place.

Yes it's not ideal that we have to wait a week while trusting the miners to just behave, but what we have right now is the best we can hope for. We could do better if someone could wave a magic wand and suddenly all BIP148 nodes start enforcing tomorrow, but that can't be done. Therefore any effort in switching over from BIP148 is an effort in division. (And really, we get 150 nodes supporting BIP91? Bitmain really gonna care about forking those guys off? While at the same time we drop from 1k 148 nodes to 850? That is just weakening for the users.)

If anyone who is running plain old core wants to enforce BIP91 then go right ahead, but do not compromise the BIP148 nodes. They are the only thing keeping the miners honest.

I want to see the node count increase this week for our last final push. Remember, it has never been safer to do so. The more who do, the less likely the miners cause a network fork.

What has happened over the last few days is making people relax and the momentum of BIP148 has died down. This is potentially exactly what bitmain had hoped for. The compromise was only proposed because the users were asserting their power. We need to continue to do so.

Wanting to spend a bit to get into BTC mining; Is my rig viable?

Planning on purchasing 6 Rx580s and piecing together a rig. Is this a profitable decision? Calculators give varied results, or perhaps I just don’t understand how they work. Websites say that 6 Rx580s can provide 175.8 mh/s. I have many questions about BTC mining, but above all am curious about the build that I have chosen. Thanks, and happy investing. via /r/BitcoinMining http://bit.ly/2vzfXlE

From Nicehash to nicehash wallet or directly to electrum?

So i just changed from Coinbase to electrum (ouch the transfer fee) and im wondering if its worth setting the payout directly to my electrum or have it go to nicehash.Im worried about the fee’s which is why i’m asking this question. (Transfering from nicehash to the nicehash wallet which has a fee of 2%, while trasfering to external wallets with greater than 0.01BTC is 4% and 0.1 is 3%.) The transfer out of nicehash to electrum is .0005BTC per transfer)I get about 1~ mBTC a day if that helps.Can anyone help me out? via /r/BitcoinMining http://bit.ly/2unTERp

What are the real profitability with usb miners?

I’m using a 980ti and a 970 to mine on my two gaming computers (when not gaming)I was looking into USB miners but what are the real profitabilities with them? They seem way too underpowered compared to my GPU(s) and im not sure how much i would actually get because of everything going on with bitcoin right now.Tried going on youtube but all the videos there are a few years old, when mining was easier.Anyone have USB miners/ have used them before that can give me some information? If they are actually more than i thought i may invest in a few.Thanks for all the help! via /r/BitcoinMining http://bit.ly/2tBY8VK
