STAY AWAY FROM ALL SCAMS AND PONZIS!
Cloud mining is either expensive or a scam - users beware!
@xxSUPERMANxx Hey man! Yep I'm still lurking in the background Busy as all hell though but i try to keep an eye on what happens here! Welcome back mate!
I recon this just shows how incentives promote a stronger network, rather than relying on some kid with a dsl connection making up the backbone of the Bitcoin network.
We'd see a completely different picture if say nodes where paid for there performance.
I am trying to get the Bitcoin core wallet to sync. I must say though.... what an utter piece of the trash the core wallet and network is. I've spent three weeks waiting to sync up to the network even with the latest release. I got so fed up that I grabbed a torrent of the blockchain up until mid-May, and wanted to let the client sync the remaining 4 weeks of the blockchain.
Half the time the client loses connections so it sits there idling. It's updating at 0.01-0.02% / hour. So, the remaining time to sync will still take another week. Granted the blockchain is 135 GB. But this is just horrible.
@Administrator why not put up a picture of two? I quickly checked the website on my phone and saw no pics there either.
A good idea, but have you considered the option of selling the miners all loaded with gpus as well?
@northernlights Please, one post is enough Northernlights
I hope your situation clears up Northernlights. All I can recommend is to talk to Baikal's customer support and provide transaction ids so they can verify your payments. Many times it can be the pi- controller that isn't working or the ssd card that is bad.
@northernlights this sounds like a big mess. After baikal ran out of the original minis and quads I think they have had a big strain on delivering their miners. We had a group buy for a considerable amount of hashpower that was canceled just as the payment was about to be made. I also heard that they had their skype account hacked, and people sent BTC to a scammer and not to baikal.
The new quads are great machines, too bad they are literally impossible to buy at the moment.
@xpyerr thanks man for your services! Maybe branching out in staking coins or something could keep the service going, but as far as paycoin goes I'd say that saga has come to an end.
