What Exactly is Popcorn Time?

Popcorn Time is an open-source, multi-platform BitTorrent software application with a stylish and attractive media player. It was initially released in March 2014 by a team of developers in Argentina. They wanted to create a software that allows users to stream video content from torrent. Popcorn Time takes its inspiration from Netflix, boasting a clean outlook with thumbnails and categories. It uses sequential downloading and uploading to play movies, hence allowing you to stream pirated movies instantly.

Popcorn Time on the Mac

How it Works

Popcorn Time is a torrent based streaming tool and the way it works is simple enough. Let’s say you want to watch Tenet (it's not out as of this writing). You use the interface provided by the platform to find and click that title, and the tool then navigates through existing BitTorrent titles automatically from come from two well known torrent sites. YTS for movies and eztv for tv-shows. Then, Tenet is streamed directly to your computer from that pre-existing BitTorrent source. So, while you watch the film, Popcorn Times acts as a torrent client and continues to leech and seed it from other people. That means you'll be forced to share the content you watch.

How to Install Popcorn Time?

In order to use Popcorn Time to stream pirated movies, you will need to download and install the software on your computer or smartphone. The app is available for variety of operating systems, including Android, Linux, Windows, Mac, etc.
  • Download Popcorn Time from popcorntime.app which hosts Mac, Windows and Android.
  • There are no specific installation requirements as it is installed just like any other app.
However, keep in mind that its usage has been banned in many regions. So, you cannot download it from Apple’s Apple Store or Google Play Store. In some countries popcorntime.app has been blocked and you need a VPN to hide your real IP. You might want to use VPN software to keep your own information private and anonymous when running the app as well.

Which version is legit, and real?

There are many clones out there, some of which will install other apps, using your computer as a bitcoin miner.
The legit, and most supported version according to Reddit, is popcorntime.app (formerly known as popcorntime.sh)

Where does popcorn time store movies?

On your computer or device. Using torrents the app stream the files, while they are being downloaded. So it's just like when you download a torrent, except it starts the video during the download.

Popcorn Time APK for Android

One of the most popular usage of Popcorn Time is its Android version, and the recently relaunched Android TV version. The most popular and liked version comes from popcorntime.app which is also the officially supported version on Reddit.

Is Popcorn Time available on iOS?

Yes. But it's not as easy as downloading an app from the App store.The iPhone version of Popcorn Time is unstable and requires a jailbroken iPhone. Since jailbreaking your iPhone in 2020 is difficult and time consuming, it isn't an option for most. If you still want to try, there is Antique's version. You can follow his updates and links on Twitter. There is also a version which allegedly works with the alternative, non-jailbreak required, but much debated, altstore. For more information, see its Github home.

Is it Illegal to Use Popcorn Time?

In most cases, yes.
Most, if not all, TV shows and movies which appear on Popcorn Time are pirated, and you may be wondering about the legality of it all. First of all, downloading any copyrighted file is illegal in most countries. However, torrents themselves are a valid means to share and download files. So without sounding too confusing, it is typically not illegal to download Popcorn Time. It's when you stream or download the movies and tv-shows themselves it gets risky. But depending on where you live this might not be the case. Copyright infringement is illegal in Germany while in India, there are no restrictions of using Popcorn Time to steam movies as long as you don’t redistribute them. Of course, laws change. That’s why it is recommended that you do your research to understand the risks.

How does the developers make money?

The Popcorn time version we recommend has affiliate links to VPN services. How much money this actually is, or if its funding hardware costs, is unknown. But it proves that money is being generated from the app.

Are there any alternatives?

There are a lot of alternatives, most of which are unstable or shady. However, here are a few alternatives recommended on Reddit. Note that they all come with their own positive and negatives aspects when compared to Popcorn Time.
  • Stremio - Open source project which lets you add your own sources, such as 1337 or Pirate Bay. It also uses official streams from YouTube, HBO and more. Has been reported as unstable but still the best Popcorn alternative.
  • Media Box HD - A MacOS app with 4K streams. Is known to be unstable for some.
  • Leonfix - A Popcorn Time Windows app which doesn't use torrents. Currently in beta.
  • ShowBox - Android alternative which doesn't use torrents. Unstable and currently in beta.
  • Radarr - Which automatically downloads shows and films.

Summary

Despite the concerns about whether or not using Popcorn Time is illegal, there is no denying that the tool is very impressive. The ability to download and stream torrent content in a seamless and hassle-free way is quite brilliant. Not to mention the platform has a much larger library of content with no restrictions whatsoever. So, it’s not surprising why many consider it a better alternative to regular torrents or a Disney+ subscription.

DV/ABUSIVE COURT There's more to this Nightmare

their father worked for the local internet company decided to spy on me admitted it openly don't have perfect evidence of that at the moment either because I lost the online accounts it was saved on or impossible to connect to any printers. He later quit internet company and work for the electric company then Microsoft . Once he spied on me long enough he felt he had evidence and dirt on me enough to raise my child support to a very unreasonable amount when I already paid 100% for the children and paid a good amount of child support every month and had them 40% of the time . I could not afford to pay it he decided to kidnap my younger one during the times that I would have always have her. My children have been going through the domestic violence an abuse their entire life. the day of the trial hearing, I had denial of service attack. where I could not get Wi-Fi nor data on mobile. that I have always paid for. Which made it so my alarm did not go off and I was late for trail. yes the guardian of alliance said the children would be super with me if I was more stable. which was because online it says I have about 10 more addresses than I actually lived at. She said the kids were not safe with him and his wife. my son 17 yrs, went in courts filed for two restraining orders & provided proof of physical abuse and he was deneyed the judge did not seem to feel as if it was abuse . One day I received a call from my children's father. I was hoping you wanted to discuss the children but all I could hear on the other end Were sounds of computers, similar to a fax machine. Shortly after that I lost all my online accounts had a brute Force attack. My last pass and keeper did not help me either because I couldn't reach them or because they chose not to help. I noticed the last time I was able to access my passwords some of my accounts were changed to my social security number. Which I would never do. So my identity any form of privacy,all my work art an memories gone. my whole digital Life. My son who is in high school lost a lot of his hard work and the Mac, I recently purchased for. I could not access our router majority of the time. while my internet company where he used to work, lied to me and said there's no such thing as a network hack and we're not willing to help. I could not use our cellular data or Wi-Fi on my electronics but majority of the family still could use the internet on some of their mobile devices. I was panicking trying to reach my customers the company that I subcontracted for but unfortunately I was redirected to spammers. I ended up using all of our financial savings to pay rent and buy more mobile devices a new computer and any type of internet security I could possibly fine in a very small town. I could not buy anything else online I had too many online fraud charges that I was continuously fighting. I could not use the vpns I always would get a sever error and my antiviruses somehow were rerouted and I would continuously be locked out. Majority of the new electronics I bought would be compromised and controlled within minutes to a day or two, thanks to the Internet of things. My family can't even reach out for help with their hack devices services with the same local internet company. They are constantly being overcharged slow connection and additional charges like voice over IP . I've purchased at least 10 phones in the last year. My cell phone companies either have no clue or ignored me or treatme as If I was a terrorist, who was just begging to get help controling my data and my children's baby photos. I've gone through over a hundred emails since I kept losing access to them even though I had the password written down. I had DNS poisoning so majority of the websites. I still am I can't even get court forms sometimes server cant find Wacourt.gov & washingtonhelp.org I can't seem to talk to a lawyer that I've been approved for multiple times through the Northwest Justice project. for my mobile phone will consistently hang up. I can't call the non emergency 911. My emails don't go through or are blocked. Many websites I visit seem to be cloned in insecure. JavaScript would not give me access to majority of the security settings in all my browsers. There is always new extensions and apps and open source license for untrustworthy certificate and cant reach the same security settings in my browsers. I cannot turn on or off like family sharing when I don't even have a family connected to that mobile device. Can't turn off USB tethering and Google pay and apple wallets has multiple transactions not by me. cannot turn them off or use them. for they are lightened out or I don't have access. Sim card & ip always changed. 5000 $ in extra international charges hit my credit report along with new numbers emails and new addresses. Cant reach for help when device have so much static and lose connection. If I try to connect my email account to a computer. It will say I need a physical key to access it. as if I set it up myself. when every computer I own now Is broke or has locked me out. I gave up but was sad for I could not keep tabs or communicate with my children. unless I borrowed a phone. They mapped out my family and contacts so if I were to borrow a phone and try to reach out for help I usually reached spam or foreign hotline or got disconnected. Then the locals were acting strange. Like sitting outside our house taking photos of us &things were stolen of property. When we were out of town. then the landlord had strange men over pretending to fix things that didn't need to be fixed installing pipes underground , laying down new soil& having some Wi-Fi farming company working in our yard 5:00 a.m. I also notice a few times the electric companies employees were messing with our power boxes, in the middle of the night . Then My photos came out extremely bright. the family videos look like we lived in a microwave oven. I know it's very strange! I do have evidence. If I would get a new router my children's father would come over take the children and their phones from them and install something on their device saying that he had to change the password on their Netflix account, so he needed to use their phone. When I would purposely break the router the electric company would show up before the internet cable company and be across the street fixing power lines. bought the children new phones and then he puts another restraining order on me and the children saying that I stole my daughters phone and won't allow her to use it. when she didn't want to use it for some reason she has on 5 gb and ends up with no data within a couple days and has to use Wi-Fi all the time. Apple finally told me they couldn't help me with iphone for it was a government issue. I thought that was hilarious for I didn't do anything wrong unless the person who was using my accounts did. I figured it would pass I mean if you're under an investigation. it would only be for a few months right ? Not two years ! well nothing happened I mean there was no reason for anything to happen. I did notice that police were driving by the house a lot. Then I thought maybe it must have been my roommate they might be after. Then why am I the one who lost everything and dealing with network abuse. My roommate was in a bad guy he did have a bit of a criminal history but nothing considered to be violent maybe just a couple drunken stupid events. Then during the process of moving my children and roommates out of the house.while drivin my car mysteriously blew up because of some electrical issue. Luckily the children were not in the car. There were no warnings & no issues with car. It took the fire department about two minutes find me but it was totaled. I could not afford to fix it or have a mechanic look at that time . Then somebody I did not no had it towed and I lost it. I was in the router that I can't get into majority of the time and saw a port forwarding to a local Bitcoin mining pool. Then it I received another server error . He continues to harass me and threaten me or he knows everything we do in our own privacy our own bedrooms where we're going who we're going with how much money says he's recording everything it seems to know everything before I can even share it with a girlfriend. He's throwing everything against me in The family Court and continues to commit perjury while I have proved him wrong multiple times but still aren't getting the protection and respect in this local small town courtroom I have currently moved to Spokane Washington to get away from it I do the traveling for the judge is now took my daughter from coming to Spokane Washington and requiring me to stay with my children at my parents home. When they are almost fully grown she is going to be 15 soon she should have a choice to bpick who she feel safe enough to live with. without him constantly tracking and destroying every electronic I have after calling my daughter then receive Non-Stop spam and scripts over SMS and once I go to my parents more and more viruses are downloaded. I've been told multiple times by a few computer companies and files that I have some sort of invisible beacon. How ? Seattle times has reported that the local electric company and crypto miners are being questioned for unauthorized usage of other families in the small town electricity for maximum power leaving us in a unsafe situation to build more cryptocurrency . Please I appreciate Any help and advice!

Gold and Silver: Where Do They Go From Here?

https://federationofglobalmerchants.com/2020/08/14/gold-and-silver-where-do-they-go-from-here/

Investors know by now that one of the leading indicators of an unstable and unpredictable stock market is a surge in the price of precious metals like gold and silver. In February, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the markets officially entered a recession, even though just months later several of the major indices have reached all-time highs. It was a brief dip into recessionary territory, but this sort of volatility is what gives investors hesitation in putting their money into the stock market, rather than something that is perceived to be more stable. Gold future contracts are selling well above $2000 per ounce for the rest of 2020 and well into 2021 as well showing that investors are confident that gold will continue to rise in price. Silver is also surging reaching new all-time highs on a daily basis. So investors may be curious as to how to get into this red-hot market, especially as the markets continue to fluctuate.
Gold:
For centuries now gold has been literally the ‘gold-standard’ of currency and wealth. Dating back all the way to around 40,000 B.C. in Spanish caves, gold is a naturally occurring element that has both fascinated and lured people for as long as barter systems and wealth has been recorded. Currently, gold is enjoying its highest valuations in history as investors flock to the stability of the precious metal through various streams. So what is the allure of gold and why is it so stable?
Warren Buffett once said, “Gold is a way of going long on fear.” That is quite a statement from perhaps the greatest investment mind of our generation. But what does this mean for the novice investor? Even the most successful blue-chip stocks can crash. Obviously the more prominent and profitable companies with mega market caps will not crash as easily as smaller companies, but given the volatility of the pandemic, we can see anything happen. But as stock markets fluctuate on a daily basis, the price of gold remains mostly stoic. Not as manipulatable as stock prices, gold is as steady as it gets for investors.
What makes gold so stable? It is a combination of factors, first and foremost, it is a physical and tangible element which makes it possible for people to store and stockpile. It does not corrode or wear down over time, making it durable and ensuring that the value remains. There is also a finite supply of it in the world. This reinforces that it will always keep a certain level of valuation as the supply is kept in check.
Today, as the Federal Reserve tries desperately to pump money into the American economy to stave off a global recession and keep companies afloat. Printing more American dollars helps in the interim, but it is a temporary band-aid for the bigger problem. As more of the dollar gets created the more it gets devalued as a form of currency. This is another reason why gold is skyrocketing. The two valuations always work inversely to each other, so as the greenback continues to plummet, the price of gold will continue to surge which makes perfect sense if one thinks about it. The value of gold is priced in American dollars per ounce, so if the value of an American dollar retreats, the cost of gold will rise in response.
So how can investors take advantage of the current state of gold? In the age of internet investing, there are plenty of ways to invest in gold or anything in that matter. Most American platforms give inventors the ability to buy fractional shares of companies. While this comes in handy for expensive stocks like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL), or Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA), it also allows investors to diversify their funds across multiple companies to form a basket approach to an industry. There are also plenty of ETFs or Exchange Traded Funds, available for investors to consider. These funds have the diversification of a mutual fund or index fund, but trade like individual stocks. Here’s a few of the better gold ETFs to consider if you are looking to get into the industry:
  1. IAU – iShares Gold Trust: One of the better known gold ETFs out there, iSHARES is a reputable brand with great overall market performance. The fund has returned over 17% to inventors already this year, and with the price of gold projected to continue to rise, this fund should keep delivering for investors into next year.
  2. DGL – Invesco DB Gold Fund: Another well known and reputable ETF, the Invesco Gold Fund has slightly higher fees than iSHARES but has also had a slightly better return so far this year.
  3. IAUF – iShares Gold Strategy ETF: Another iSHARES ETF, this one has parts of IAU, as well as gold futures contracts, to get a long term forecast of the price of gold so the investor gets exposure to a wider range of gold options.
There are dozens of other ETFs available for investors that cover everything from miners to the finished products. Mining company stocks are another great way to get exposure. As the demand for gold increases, these mining companies should see a rise in their revenues and eventually, their profits as well. These changes will be reflected in their stock prices and we have already seen some of this already this year.
  1. ABX – Barrick Gold: One of the largest gold mining companies in the world, this Canadian company has seen healthy gains in their stock price so far in 2020. Over the last 52 weeks, Barrick investors have enjoyed a 131% increase in stock price. With mining projects ongoing in Canada, America, Australia, South America, and Africa, Barrick has already announced that it is on track to achieve guidance this year despite closures from COVID-19.
  2. FNV – Franco-Nevada Gold: This stock price rose almost 15% in July alone. Franco-Nevada operates as a funding company to gold mining companies, rather than actually doing the mining themselves. Sustainalytics, a guidance and analysis company, rated Franco-Nevada number one amongst 104 precious metal companies.
  3. NEM – Newmont Goldcorp: The largest gold stock by market-cap and the only stock to trade on the S&P 500, Newmont is probably the safest company for gold investors to invest in. On top of steady returns and low volatility in the stock price, the company pays a fairly healthy dividend as well.
With gold at all-time highs, we can begin to question how high the precious metal may go. With a second wave of the coronavirus making its way around some parts of the world, and America, still making its way through their initial wave, the uncertainty that exists in today’s markets may continue into 2021. Some Wall Street analysts have forecast gold to rise as high as $10,000 per ounce, but that seems like a little ambitious. Gold has just recently hit all-time highs at $2000 per ounce and to imagine that it can run up another 500% in the next few years seems far-fetched at this point in time. That would require the markets to enter an extended bear-market, which of course is possible after a decade of a bullish run, but it would also require the American dollar to continue to be further devalued.
Gold is pegged to continue to rise for the rest of this year though and well into 2021. That means investors and analysts are foreseeing a further devaluation of the American greenback as well as continued volatility in the markets and economy. Is gold a safe haven? Some people believe it is, but if you are an investor that enjoys high returns over long periods of time, investing in precious metals may not be for you. Investors love the stability of gold but the returns are never astronomical, with the last few months being an exception. It helps to have a portion of your portfolio dedicated to precious metals to diversify and protect you from any sudden market corrections, but investors should not be looking at gold as a short-term way to get wealthy.
Silver: The other precious metal that has been flying sky-high of recent months is silver, the eternal younger brother to gold. Mined from silver-ore, it is a highly malleable metal that was once valued higher than gold by the Ancient Egyptians. Today, it is relatively low in price per ounce compared to gold, reaching all-time highs recently of just under $30 per ounce. Silver is another stable alternative to gold, and at lower prices, it may be a little more affordable for the novice investor to jump into.
Like with gold, silver has an inverse relationship to the American dollar, and to all currencies in general. Again, this is another reason why silver is hitting all-time highs right now, with silver future contracts predicting a steady rise to mirror gold, well into 2021. There is also something that Wall Street calls the gold silver ratio, which is exactly what it sounds like: the ratio of the price of gold per ounce to the price of silver per ounce. This ratio has historically moved together, which makes logical sense if both precious metals are independently moving inverse to paper currencies. Historically, the gold and silver prices do move together though as the general ratio has been in the range of 17:1 to 20:1.
Silver also has numerous ways for investors to get involved in, including silver mining and production companies, as well as the ever popular silver ETFs. These Exchange Traded Funds have gained popularity amongst retail investors in recent years as a way of purchasing a diversified product as a single equity with low costs, and no trading fees if your platform allows it. Here are a few of the better performing silver ETFs that investors can look into adding to their portfolios if they are interested in the precious metal:
  1. SLV – iShares Silver Trust: Probably one of the better known silver ETFs, this is fully backed by silver bullion and coins held in a vault. While usually fairly steady, this ETF has enjoyed a 52-week increase of 152% with much of that coming in the last few months.
  2. SIVR – Aberdeen Standard Physical Silver Shares ETF: Very similar to SLV but with lower fees, this is an ideal fund for novice and experienced investors to get into as they start to diversify their portfolios.
  3. DBS – Invesco DB Silver Fund: Again another stable ETF for investors to get into, and another good performing one as well. Just as with their gold ETF, Invsco focuses on silver futures contracts for this fund, so it is a nice long-term play if investors are bullish on silver.
Just as with gold, investors can get a slice of the silver pie by buying shares of silver mining companies as well. Here are a few of the top silver mining company stocks that investors can look into adding to their portfolios.
  1. PAAS – Pan American Silver Corp.: This Canada based miner is focussed on the exploration, development, extraction, refining, processing, and reclamation of silver. They operate mines in Peru, Mexico, Bolivia, and are developing more as well for the future.
  2. WPM – Wheaton Precious Metals: Another Canadian based company that deals with miners of gold, silver, palladium, and cobalt. Wheaton is not a direct miner, rather they purchase these precious metals from other mining companies.
  3. AG – First Majestic Silver Corp.: Canadian companies seem to be dominating the silver industry, and First Majestic is another of those. This company focuses mainly in Mexico for gold and silver.
Silver may never be as popular as gold for investors to keep track of but the two precious metals move in a synchronized fashion, and both are looked upon by investors as safe havens for their money when the market is in flux.
The rest of 2020 seems like a wildcard right now, with many analysts expecting a further correction to the markets at any point. There seems to be an inevitability to a market crash of some sort, whether it is as big as the one that happened back in February and March, remains to be seen. Investors are looking at the precious metal industry to hold their funds to wait out any sort of correction or crash. If this does happen, we may expect a pullback in precious metals too as investors selloff to get back into some stocks at their low levels. Such is the ebb and flow of the economy during turbulent times like the current one we are in.
At the same time, what if a market correction does not happen? Will the uncertainty continue or will investors feel relatively secure in the way the markets are progressing? This could cause a reduction in the demand for silver and gold, culminating in lower prices in the future. Of course this also depends on the Federal Reserve diminishing their rate of printing paper currency to bailout the economy, which does not seem like a reality in the short-term at least.
Another point of contention for investors is the ongoing economical and political tensions between China and America. The two world powers have been feuding for the past couple of months over various things, but it escalated as China social media app Tik Tok gained popularity in North America. It was alleged that TikTok was sending data and information from mobile phones back to China, though nobody is sure of their intended use of this data. Regardless, the markets have stumbled several times lately because of this. Both sides have threatened economic sanctions and the banning of certain product use in each country. The prices of silver and gold have shot up as the tensions have escalated between the two governments, as investors flock to the precious metals. Many of the biggest companies on the major stock indices rely on China for materials or production, so any sort of breakdown in supply chains could cause an enormous change to their stock prices. An example of this is a sudden 5% correction in the price of Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), as it was thought that iPhone sales would decline if China’s chat platform WeChat was banned in America.
There are other factors that may have an effect on gold and silver prices as well. In this modern economy, many of the retail investors have trended towards younger adults with a sudden influx of income. Popular platforms such as Robinhood combined with increased time at home during the quarantine, have caused retail investor usage to skyrocket during the pandemic. Many of these investors are more lured in by the shiny new objects of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. Perhaps we will start thinking of these cryptocurrencies as a modern day version of precious metals one day, as many investors and some analysts, believe that Bitcoin may be a safe haven in the future. Already, the price of Bitcoin has risen above $12,000 in August, mirroring the highs of gold and silver. If the demand for Bitcoin rises higher than the demand for precious metals, we may see an investor migration to cryptocurrencies rather than tangible metals.
Conclusion: Gold and silver are staples of our global economy, and will continue to be so as long as the demand for precious metals exists. In times of uncertainty, gold and silver are viewed as safe relative to the volatility of the stock market. Sure, their prices can vary as well, but because they are tied to a less dynamic valuation that is based on an inverse relation to paper currency, their prices will not and can not fluctuate as much as the liquidity of individual stocks.
As long as the world remains in flux, there will be a general feeling of instability, especially for global markets. A second wave of COVID-19 in the third or fourth quarter of 2020 could prove to be enough to push the markets over the edge and into another recession. The bull market has been rallying for over a decade now, with astronomical gains over the last few years, especially for sectors like the big tech FAANG stocks. Another factor to consider is what a Biden government could bring to the world if he is elected over President Donald Trump in October. A new government could ease some of the tensions with China, as well as within America itself. These are all big what ifs, and could all have potential impacts on the economy and the world. As long as all of these factors are up in the air, investors will be looking to gold and silver as ways of stabilizing their portfolios and protecting their finances from a potential market crash in the future.

I earned about 4000% more btc with my android tablet than with a $250 ASIC mini rig setup using GekkoScience Newpac USB miners!

Requirements:
1.) Android Device with access to Google Play Store. *I haven't tried yet but you may be able to use tis on Android TV devces as well by sideloading. If anyone has success before I try, let me know! -Note, I did this with a Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 so its a newer more powerful device. If your android is older, your profts will most likely be less than what I earned but to give a projected range I also tested on my Raspberry Pi 4 running a custom LineageOS rom that doesn't allow the OS to make full use of the Pi's specs and I still got 500 h/s on that with Cloud boost, so about 60% of what my Tab 6 with MUCH Higher Specs does.
**Hey guys. Before I get started i just wanted to be clear about one thing. Yes I have seen those scammy posts sharing "miracle" boosts and fixes. I have a hard time believing stuff online anymore. But this is honestly real. Ill attach photos and explain the whole story and process below. Thanks for taking the time to read and feel free to share any thoughts, concerns, tips, etc*
So last week I finally got started with my first mini rig type mining build. I started getting into crypto about a year ago and it has taken me a long time to even grasp half of the projects out there but its been fun thus far! Anyways my rig was 2 GekkoScience Newpac USB miners, a Moonlander USB miner to pair with an FPGA i already had mining, a 10 port 60W 3.0 USB hub and 2 usb fans. The Newpacs actually are hashing at a combined 280 g/s which is actually better than their reported max hash rate when overclocked. Pleasant surpise and they are simple!! I just wanted to get a moonlander because my fpga already mines on Odocrypt for DGB and I just wanted to experience Scrypt mining and help build the DGB project. The Newpacs are mining BTC though.
After I got everything up and running i checked my payout daily average after 1 week. I averaged .01 a day TOTAL between all three miners with them all perforing ABOVE SPEC!!! I had done research so i knew I wouldnt earn much. More than anything i just wanted to learn. But still. I was kinda surprised in a negative way. Yesterday I actually earned less than .01 Frustrated I went back to scouring the web for new ideas. About a year ago, when II was starting, I saw an app on my iphone called CryptoBrowser that claimed to mine btc on your phone without actually using phone resources using a method of cloud mining. I tried it for a week and quit because I earned like .03 after a ton of use and seemed scammy. Plus my iphone actually would get very hot when doing this so I quit using it as it seemed like a possible scam with all the cryptonight browser mining hacks and malware out there.
Anyways I was on my Galaxy Tab S6 and saw that CryptoBrowser released a "PRO" edition for 3.99 on Google Play. I bought it for Sh*ts and giggles and booted it up. It came with what they called "Cloud Boost" Essentially this is a button you press and it multiplys the estimated hashrate that it gives you device by the number shown on the boost button. (With the purchase of PRO you get one free x10 boost. You can purchase additional boosts to use with other android devices but those are actually pretty pricy. Another x10 boost was like $25 if i remember correctly).
I played with it for about an hour to see if it actually worked like it said it would this time. To my surprise, as i was browsing, my device didnt increase in temperature AT ALL!!!!! I checked my tast manager to confirm and it was indeed true, my memory and usage barely went up. it was giving me an estimated range of 80-105 on the hashrate. Once i pushed the x10 boost button, that went to 800-1150 h/s. I switched my screen to not go to sleep, plugged it to the charge and let it run on the browser page, hashing. When you push the boost button, it runs for 3 hours at the boosted speeds. After that it goes back to normal but if you press the button again, it boosts everything again. There is no limit to how many times you use it. After checking what I earned after 24 hours, I HAD MADE .40 in BTC!!!!! I JUST EARNED OVER 4000% MORE THAN MY $280 MINING RIG EARNED ME!!!! I was blown away. Maybe this was a fluke? I did it again next day. Every 3 hours or so I would push the button again but thats all. Sure enough, .35 that day. Also, it realy BTC. I requested a payout and although it took like 12 hours for them to send me an email stating they had just sent it, I actually did recieve the state amount of BTC within 24 hours in my personal wallet. The fees to send are SUPER LOW!. Like .01
Below I will list the steps I took, along with an explanation of thier "Mining" process on Androids. Reminder, this ONLY WORKS ON ANDROIDS. Also DO NOT use cryptobrowser on a physcal laptop or desktop. I ran it on an old laptop for three days last year and it fried it. It does actually use your hardware on those platforms to mine and it is not efficnet at all as I suspect they prob steal over half of your power for themselves using the REAL RandomX protocol via browser mining which is EXTREMELY INEFFICIENT DONT TRY IT!!
-----How To Do This Yourself:
Cryptotab Browser states the program works on Android devices by estimating what it thinks the hashrate would be for your device specs and siimulates what you would mine in a remote server however you still earn that estimated coin amount. It is not a SHA-256 process or coin that they say is mining, rather it is XMR and they swap that and pay it out to you in BTC Bitcoin. However I know damn well my Tab S6 doesnt hash 80-105 h/s on RandomX because I have done it with a moodified XMRig module i ported to Android. I got 5 h/s a sec if I was getting any hashes at all. But thats besides the point as I still was making money.
Now, when you press that cloud boost button it immediately boosts that hash rate it estimates by the number on the cloud boost. As stated above, you can purchase more boosts and gift them or use them on extra android devices that you may have. Again, they are pricey so I'm not doing that plus it would just mean that I have another device that I have to leave on and open. The boosts come in x2, x4, x6, x8 and x10 variants. Again, they have unlimited uses.
Here is the link to grab yourself CryptoBrowser Pro from CryptoTab. This IS A REFERRAL LINK! This is where I benefit from doing tis tutorial. Like i said, I want to be transparent as this is not a scam but I'm also not doing this out of the love of my heart. Their referral system works in that people that use the donwload the app using your link are your stage 1 referrals. Anytime they are mining, you earn a 15% bonus. So say they mine $.30 one day. You would get paid out an additional $.045 in your own balance (it does not come out of the referred user balance fyi so no worries). Then lets say that referred miner also gets their own referrals. I would get a 10% bonus on whatever THOSE people mine. This goes on and on for like 8 tiers. Each tier the bonus percntage essential halves. So again, I stand to benefit from this but it also is stupid to not make this visible as its WAY CHEAPER, EASIER AND MORE PROFITABLE TO GET BTC USING THIS METHOD THAN IT IS USING ASICS!! THIS EARNS ALMOST AS MUCH BTC AS AN ANTMINER S7 DOES RUNNING 24/7 ONLY WITHOUT THE HUGE ELLECTRICTY BILL AND COSTS!!!!)
Thats it. Again, if you have concerns, let me know or if you have suggestions, other tips, etc... mention those as well!!!

No taxation without representation!

It is extremely important for acceptability of this fund, that the people who contribute the funds also decide how the funds are spent.
The Bitcoin Mining Parliament is a ready made platform to do this. I urge everyone, please take a look at it, contact any sha256 miners you know of, and give the author your feedback.
I am thrilled that the miners are starting to recognize their active role as executives in the bitcoin system. Sorry for the clickbait headline - I do not consider this being really a tax anymore than all the people buying iPhones and all the Apple shareholders are being forced to pay a tax to pay the salaries of the iOS developers.

I don't get it..

I'm fully aware that the big boys will play big games, especially in an unregulated new-ish market such as crypto. I get why BTC and others are swinging like they are. I get the mechanics behind it. That's fine.
What I don't understand is the empty talk...not just here, but everywhere. To the moon, FUD, the "real" bitcoin, attacks, scams, villains. Who gives a shit? If you think rich boys won't play rich boy games, you're naive. It happens in every industry and usually the best solution wins in the end...but the rich always get richer in the process.
In the end, what matters? The technology and its adoption/acceptance/utility. I have to dig 10x harder to find out what the technology roadmaps look like than I do to find out who big bad Roger is and details of his evil plans. Who gives a shit about that guy (or any of the other players)? Does b*cash have actual tangible plans to be successful? If so, I'd love a place to see those plans and make my own decisions. I've seen a lot of upcoming BTC developments (and the obligatory "yea in 18 months" replies), but that shows me there are plans and strategies for the next level of the technology. I understand that solid technology requires time to build and implementing a half-baked solution would equal failure. To be the biggest, you can't have those risks. Your big money investors won't tolerate it.
Oh, Chinese miners somewhat control and sway things and have a monopoly on the ASIC miners? Do we not have the ability to build these (likely in a better, faster, more efficient way)? Everybody is just pointing fingers and crying instead of providing guidance and insight.
Oh, transaction fees are too high and the "market" doesn't like it? Well, from the way it seems, 90% of the newly invested money is here for the rollercoaster, unrelated to the technology. The "older" money here knows how useful this tech is. Not to mention - if the fees are that significant, can we not get this community involved in supporting education and development? Adoption of segwit addresses reduces fees, right? Are there things we can collectively do to help delivery of LN, Schnorr, other efforts? Let's be a solution to these problems instead of just regurgitating the problems all day. It's like watching CNN or Fox News while trying to actually get educated - won't happen.
People are also caught up in the religion of Satoshi's "vision" which, like anything else, would naturally evolve as the product and technology evolves. Steve Jobs didn't plan on the iPhone on day 1 either, but if you said iPhone in his early days, you'd be against Steve's "vision". I don't know....just calm down.
TL,DR: Do you believe in your technology or not? If so, let the power players pay themselves with power moves. Chickens always come home to roost. Let's be educated and united in our belief of the technology. The price will be what we deserve in the end.
Edit: just learned how to spell today

down the Node-Red rabbit hole, part 5 - hold my beer

part1 part2 part3 part4
so, it's been 4 months since i started this journey and i gotta say that NR has really re-vitalized my personal interest in home-automation, as well as, my HA and whole house setup.
i've done more in the past 4 months, to streamline my setup and adding new automations than i've done in the three years since i started using HA somewhere around v0.24.x'ish. i got that shit dialed in now.
(also some credit to EspHome for being awesome, despite having meh documentation. yeah, i said it. meh👏doc👏u👏men👏ta👏shun)
at this point i have about 36 NR tabs. some are just testing, or playing around with a particular component/palette, but most have at least one flow on it that is live and in use.
so, i thought i'd break some of them down for you guys, 'barney style+':
(also, some of these are way to huge to post readable screenshots of, so i'm just gonna describe them. plus some of these i detailed in my previous posts.)
first up is my globals. where i set global.vars
arrive/away
morning/bedtime/naptime
alarm
sonos
ping
watchdog
battery (the nodes are very similar to above)
switch control
harmony
remote
long term away
spotify
washedryer
doorbell
disk space
gmail
calendar
alexa TTS (subflow)
drafthouse
twitter link
so, yeah. i'd like to see some of you post some of your flows/ideas if only so i could totally steal them.
.

+obscure skippy joke. it's from a book++.
++yes i read. well, i audiobook, but same diff+++.
+++i mean, it's just basic science!++++
++++i mean, that study coulda been bullshit, sponsored by "the audiobook council" or some shit, but i'm taking it at face value.

Some thoughts on the blocksize from a longtimer

People need to realize, that at the current (and still raising) popularity of Bitcoin, bigger blocks wouldn't help much if at all.
The thing is, it is very easy to fill blocks. If blocks aren't consistently full, users can effectively set fees to as low as they want and miners will include them anyway. Maybe there's going to be some delay, maybe not. Nice and dandy, but it doesn't work for long. It worked for BTC because the number of users was tiny. And it will work for altcoins, as long as they are tiny. But as soon as a given altcoin gets popular enough to be even remotely significant, it will hit the same wall.
As soon as there is more demand than room on the blockchain, some transactions will be left-over and start piling up: the mempool will keep raising until some people are priced out. Some users will say: "well, that's too much, I'm not going to do that test transaction" or "I'm going to use an altcoin for this". There is a "cut-off cliff of pain". I estimate that this pain-price point to be around $10-$20 and kind-of fixed. Exactly between "too expensive for paying for any coffee" and "super-cheap way to make international wires". Where rich users are fine paying, but smaller users have been cut-off. Bitcoin got there already. That's why it's nearing $20k/BTC. That's what many of you wanted, right?
Tip for people with small amounts stuck: get your wallets ready and maybe, if you're lucky, there will another time when network will calm-down a bit (around new year maybe? or maybe when Coinbase finally start supporting SegWit, etc) and either: consolidate all your small outputs into one bigger TXO (segwit one!), or send to an exchange during that time so at least you can sell it. Just three weeks ago we had a period of 2-5sat/B transaction clearing out.
Anyway, there is no other way. We can't have billions of people on-chain. If we had 8MB blocks, we would still fill them up, until some people wouldn't be able to compete with the fees. Maybe we would buy ourselves a month or two.
Also: I've heard many people complain that using the coins is most important, and better for Bitcoin than holding it. It's absolute rubbish. The value of Bitcoin is set by how many people are willing to HODL it at a given price-point, not how many people are willing to spend it. "Spending" Bitcoin is just a transfer of Bitcoin from person A, to person B - nothing in the system changed except current owner of some coins. It's even worse if B automatically sells for fiat immediately. Holding BTC means that your consider it worth more than a current market price. Bitcoin could totally work and be worth millions per piece, even with transactions at $100, as long as people consider it safe and worth holding. As long as I can spend $100 once a year to increase my BTC-retirement-fund, and then spend $100 once a year, once I retired to cash out to some local currency, I'm all good.
Now, I now it sucks if you're not rich, and you can't toy with it, and keep sending between wallets etc. And you feel like altcoins are better etc. And it's true - ATM many altcoins a cheaper way to send small sums of money around. But saving / investing... let me tell you how it looks from my perspective...
I am a software engineer in Sillicon Valley. I have a well-paying job, I eat $20-worth of sushi for dinner, pay $10 every time I trade stocks, pay $3k each month for rent. I can invest $10k in BTC without thinking too much about it. And I'm not telling you this to make you jealous. The wealth inequality is so vast! That's just reality and I think it gives some perspective. I know as I wasn't born here. And I'm no one special here. I'm a nobody. I can't even afford a decent house here. (hindsight is always 20/20, ha)
And there are thousands of software engineers like this. They receive and trade stocks on a weekly/monthly basis, worry about the overpriced stock market, overpriced housing, pilling up cash that they have no idea what to do with. Do you think they care if Bitcoin transaction costs $10? No, they don't. And how many people who complain about $1 fees will take to invest as much as a person like me can? Hundreds. And as I said - I'm nobody. A CEOs here can drop $1MM on Bitcoin, just because they feel playful a given day, or they got jealous of some other CEO friend told them how awesome they are doing with BTC, during a golf game on Saturday. And they wouldn't worry about 50% correction much if at all. And do you think these people buy value-phones and look for good deals on economy-class cars? Do you think they have time to research which altcoin of the day has low transactions? Come on. They will all think something like: "let's put 0.1% of my cash into this magic internet money and see what happens. I want that Bitcoin thing too.".
So, you're free to have your own opinion, but if you ask me, for time being, the people who can not afford to transmit Bitcoin too often will and should just hold it, transferring it when it's relatively cheaper, and use altcoins for playfull spending etc. Just don't expect too much return on your altcoin holdings. I expect Bitcoin to consistently keep growing the fastest, while altcoins keep multiplying. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Or an iPhone vs hundreds of Android spin-offs thing. I use Android, but do I believe someone will dethrone iPhone? Nope.
In a sense... you want to invest in Apple stocks, even if you can't afford to drop $1k on an iPhone yourself. Because of people richer than you that can, and will.
And if it makes it any better, I know that LN will solve it all for us. We just need to wait a couple of months.. a year maybe for it to be more common. And I've been through all the early hacks, crashes, MtGox, great depression, forking drama... years and years of problems. And Bitcoin being too popular is like the smallest problem I've seen so far. The problem that smaller coins would like to have, haha. Being patient and some educated faith is what you are rewarded for.
Edit: I woke up, and I have to work, so I'm just going to address some common themes.
Obviously I created this account as throw-away. Duh.
I already can send quickly money for free. I send my friends money with Google Wallet every day. And in many countries in Europe free wires were a thing for like 10 years now. And for purchasing stuff I am very happy with credit cards. They give me points and stuff. If someone thinks Bitcoin can compete as a "payment processor", then I don't know what to say... Wake up, Bitcoin in itself was never really that great at it. Bitcoin won't be a payment processor for the masses. It will be an alternative monetary and banking system. And on top of it, we will get cheap payments and such.
The reason why I hold Bitcoin is that I have something that can't be taken away from me. Through theft, inflation, confiscation, economic crisis, banking collapse, unjust court order, you name it. Noone can prove I have it, noone can take it away. I can keep 1% of my wealth in this weird thing and sleep better at night. Other reasons are secondary, though sure... speculation on the price is a nice thing.
LN networks are going to work. As a software engineer, I understood how Bitcoin works since I've read the whitepaper and did some research. I've always admired how simple it is. Cryptography part requires expertise, but that's OK. LNs are very elegant and simple too. On a daily basis, I work and improve systems that are way, way more complex than BTC + LN.

Passive income using phone

Okay so I have been using 3 apps on my side phone to make passive income, and today I will talk about 2 of them ( I am still waiting for the payment from the 3rd one , which isnt crypto btw, but once I get it I will make a post here!)

The apps are called Electroneum and Pi Network. I noticed that Pi Network was recently shared here , so I will mostly talk about Electroneum.

Electroneum is a cryptocurency and it's current value is $0.00441353
I am not sure if it is available on iphones, but download it here for android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.electroneum.mobile&hl=en You just create an account, set up a pin and let the miner run in the background. You don't even have to have the app open for it to work. Moreover it works for 7 days straight! So once a week you have to get on the app and click the 'mine' button again.

The miner doesn't even take up power, since it does not use the processing power of the phone. It instead benchmarks the device and allocates it a hashrate that it would achieve if it were actually mining. You will then be allocated the amount of ETN you would receive if you actually mined a block. This is called cloud mining. The app acts as a wallet, and you need a minimum of 100 ETN to cashout. You can then either save your ETN in your wallet, or you can go to a site like hitbtc.com and exchange your ETN for some other crypto or USD.

If you sign up using my code 8A5898 you will mine 1% more ETN. I am not sure where they ask for it ( if they do). If they do not ask for it, go to the app, click on 'more' and it should ask for it. BTW I have not used a referral code myself, so comment yours and I will pick a random one to use :D.


The other app is called Pi Network. Someone already made a post on this, and I found a few mistakes. Since I have been using the app for a while and I currently have over 1k Pi, I just wanted to share my opinion on it.
Ok let me preface this by saying a couple of things, so I dont get peoples hopes up.
I do not promise that it will explode like bitcoin, or end up being very valuable, but it costs nothing to run on my phone ; it doesn't drain battery and I find it exciting that in the future it could be a valuable currency.
Pi is a new digital currency being developed by a group of Stanford PhDs. Once you open the app, you are prompted to click a mine button and that's it! You have to reclick the button once every 24 hours so you can verify that you are human. My base rate is 0.79π/h but it has increased to 2.83π/h because of the person that referred me.
To get into beta you will need to a code, mine is 'Markella' , but feel free to make a chain in the comments so you can benefit from each other!
From reading the white papers, they team is currently in phase 1 of 3. Phase 3 will be here at Q4 of 2019. In that phase you can exchange Pi with other cryptos and even buy things with Pi.

Why the debate about blocksize is irrelevent, and the next phase of Bitcoin

This is my first post here, but I'm well known and hated on BTC (I got banned from Bitcoin for calling that Bashco guy a fucking idiot, which he is). Anyways, since this is supposedly a market based Bitcoin sub, I thought maybe there's some people who appreciate cutting all the bullshit politics out of the Bitcoin conversation.
To summarize my position, it would be thus:
So, with that out of the way, here's why all this current debate about scalability is pointless.
The growth of Bitcoin up until now has been overwhelmingly been powered by crypto-tech geeks (the hobbyists, the coders, the anarcho capitalists, the ideologists etc). For these people, the underlying technology has been what's most important to them. For them, things like block size and scalability are of the utmost importance. These people often think that Bitcoin is going to replace fiat currency, or replace the entire global financial system (it isn't. It's going to become a significant part OF the global financial system, but to think it will replace it is extremely naive and amateurish thinking that massively underestimates the enourmous complexity of the financial system, as well as the huge amount of inertia built into it). These are the people who brought Bitcoin from a weirdo techie project to a major $100 billion market. That's an impressive achievement, but that phase of Bitcoins growth is now coming to an end. We are now entering the next phase, where the primary drivers of growth will not be tech people, but finance people. The Big Boys. The institutional dollars that move all major markets (whether it be stocks, bonds, fx, commodities etc); the hedge funds, the pension funds, the mutual funds, ETF's, high net worth individuals etc. We're still in the very beginning stages of this second phase. Bitcoin is still too risky for most of this money (which is inherently conservative), but the more risk adverse members of this group (mostly the higher risk hedge funds and risk taking HNW individuals) are just now starting to dip their toes in. As the market becomes bigger and more liquid, the volatility will greatly go down and the percieved risk will go down as well, and eventually the more risk averse members of this group will take the plunge. That will take several years probably. The problem for the first group (the tech centric folks) is the finance boys have way, way, way more money then them, and it's THEIR money that's going to guide the development of Bitcoin. Everything follows price eventually, from miners to devs, to investments to infrastructure. And so unfortunately for the cryptoanarchists who thought that Bitcoin was going to bring down the System, it will be the System that determines what Bitcoin will be.
Which brings me to my main point: If you want to make money, you have to think about what each group values. Sure, for the tech group, perhaps things like block size or the minuatae of which SegWit is better is the most important factors in which coin you should invest in. But that group is no longer in control. The finance guys are. And so you need to ask yourself, what does THIS money value? I can promise you it isn't block size, or what's in the White Paper. For these guys, the most important thing for them is being able to get their money out if/when they need it. And for that, they need market size/liquidity. Of course, the underlying coin has to actually work (which Bitcoin clearly does). But it's far more important to these guys to be invested in the most liquid market then try to suss out the incremental tech improvements in each coin.
That's what the pro BCH crowd doesn't get. They may be ABSOLUTELY RIGHT about their tech argument (that bigger blocks are better) and yet still get crushed, because the thing THEY are valuing is not what the market values. And I believe BTC's current size advantage gives it an insurmountable advantage. I say insurmountable because I believe it's too late for any other coin to catch up, as BTC's first move advantage has given it a positive feedback loop that will continue to power it further and further ahead.
It works like this: There's trillions of dolalrs poised to enter cryptos over the next few years. The vast majority of this money values market size/liquidity over all else, and so will naturally gravitate to the biggest/most liquid market (BTC). In turn, the very act of all this money flowing into BTC will make BTC even BIGGER and more liquid then it's competitors. In turn, this makes BTC even MORE attractive to the next round of money coming in, which means it gets bigger and eve more liquid still. Which in turn makes it even MORE attractive.....etc etc....
Think about it. If you have, say, $1 billion to put into crypto (an entirely reasonable sum for the types of ppl we're talking about. Bill Ackman put several billion on an Herbalife short ffs) are you going to put it into the $100 billion BTC market? Or the $5 billion BCH market jsut because you like big blocks? Of COURSE you're not going to put a stake equivalent to 20% of the entire market. The very act of buying would cause price to explode several hundred % only to crash back down when you, as the primary buyer, are finished. And after your hedge fund is fully invested, let's say you take heavy losses on your stock portfolio and you need to get your money out quickly. Try removing $1 billion quickly from a $5-$6 billion market and you're going to crash it. So you've bought in at extreme highs and sold out at extreme lows. This is how newbs trade, not multi billion dollar hedge funds.
So many people waste so much time and energy debating the shit that doesn't matter that they totally ignore the factors that do. It'd be like buying Apple shares based on which executives get the best parking spaces, rather then how many iPhones you expect them to sell this year.
This dynamic (BTC as the biggest market outperforming all other coins significantly) has been in effect since the Aug 1 fork, and I believe it's for the exact reason I state above. And we should expect this dynamic to be the driving force behind the crypto markets for the next few years going forward.

part 3: down the NodeRed rabbit hole - resurrection (long)

so, now that i've got about 4 weeks of NR experience under my belt, i thought i would do a follow up and show a few new flows. plus, i've picked up a few new hardware add-ons. namely a Harmony Hub and a coupla Sonoff/Tasmota S31.
one of the new things i did was setup some global.variables i can use in any flow.
https://imgur.com/YFJEwRd
1] is pretty obvious, does my bayesian sensors think i'm home/not_home, and then save it to a global.variable.
2] reads the MQTT for my S31 power monitor on my dumb TV. if it's > 100, then the TV is ON, <= 99, then TV is OFF (or in the process of turning off). then set a global.variable for on/off.
https://imgur.com/mcuS1Vk
3] i changed the day/night temperatures to global.variables.
4] this one gets the current volume level of my Sonos and then stores that to a global.variable. (get to why further below)
5] this one i talked about in another post here: https://www.reddit.com/homeassistant/comments/abvqup/device_tracker_with_unifi2mqtt/
okay, so now that i know if my dumb TV is on/off, then i can add it into my "away" (and "bedtime") flow. that gray one on the bottom right is using the HarmonyHub control node to fire the power toggle. (which i'll get to further below) plus it'll stop my Sonos, if it's playing.
https://imgur.com/nerbMv3
also you may notice the "alexa TTS" one, that's a subflow, which is a bit of reusable flow, you can put anywhere you want it. this one picks a random number between 1 and 10, then alexa TTS plays the corresponding message.
https://imgur.com/bLtBlaD
this was also my attempt to get alexa to say "aaaf-firmative" like newt in aliens.
https://imgur.com/cUnG1IE
doesn't really work, but i'm determined to make this happen. gonna have to figure out the proper phonetics of it. then i'm totally gonna get her to do a stutter like max headroom on one of the other responses. but, my ultimate goal is to get her to do "twiki" from buck rogers. beaty beaty
anyways, i've also added that subflow to all my switch on/offs. along with an MQTT log.
https://imgur.com/SnpAnW8
now for some of the new stuff...
here's a sleep timer. if i'm listening to music in bed, i can activate this with "alexa turn on sleep" and what it does, is it takes the current volume level of my Sonos, stored in a global.var, stores it in a flow.var, then subtracts 1 every minute, until it reaches zero. if the volume is at 30, then it'll be 30 mins until zero.
https://imgur.com/7QmbY2S
once it reaches zero, it stops the music, sets the volume back to the original state (ie: 30) and then turns itself off.
there's an issue when you use something like a Harmony Hub to turn on/off dumb devices via input_bool, or switches, or lights, etc.: that once you turn it on via NR, HA, HHub, Alexa, etc., then HA thinks it's on. if you then turn it off via the device remote, HA won't let you turn it on again, because HA thinks its already on.
so, i had to use a script and a "dummy" input_boolean. by dummy i mean, that i do not care, and will not EVER care, what it's state is. on. off. whatever. won't need it. it just needs to be there for the script to work.
input_boolean: mac_x: game_x: candles_x: tv_x: 
hide them from emu_hue, cause Alexa doesn't need to see them either.
emulated_hue: host_ip: 10.xx.xx.xx exposed_domains: - input_boolean - script entities: input_boolean.tv_x: hidden: true input_boolean.mac_x: hidden: true input_boolean.candles_x: hidden: true input_boolean.game_x: hidden: true 
add some scripts.
script: tv: alias: "TV" sequence: service: input_boolean.toggle entity_id: input_boolean.tv_x game: alias: "Game" sequence: service: input_boolean.toggle entity_id: input_boolean.game_x mac: alias: "Mac" sequence: service: input_boolean.toggle entity_id: input_boolean.mac_x candles: alias: "Candles" sequence: service: input_boolean.toggle entity_id: input_boolean.candles_x 
so instead of key'ing off the input_booleans, i key off the script call. "alexa, turn on candles" calls the script, which toggles the i_b but i only care about the state change of the script. then NR does it's thing.
https://imgur.com/Hky9fWd
notice tho, that it's a little smart. if the tv is already on, via that global.var, then it just switches inputs, otherwise it turns it on, waits 7 seconds, then switches inputs.
okay, here's something REALLY advanced.
i have a second pi running cgminer with a USB hub and some USB stick ASIC bitcoin miners. and every once and a while, they stop working and need to be reset. and you can't just restart, you gotta kill the power to the hubs to get them to reset. and then restart cgminer.
enter NR cgminer node and the cgminer API.
https://imgur.com/POSkjrp
so every 5 mins, hit the cgminer API, it returns stats in json, dump those to mqtt. use the function node to pull out the array nested values we need to look at. look for a zero value in any of them. if the input_boolean "auto-reset-miner" is on, then lets reset.
stop cgminer, wait, turn off the USB hub, wait, turn on hub, wait, start cgminer, send an alert to mqtt and SMS me.
now the real magic is the red exec "start cgminer" node. because we stopped cgminer, we have to start it again, on a whole other computer than NR is on.
it basically does a SSH into the miner pi and starts up cgminer. this was difficult to accomplish inside a docker of NR. i had to move some ssh keys around and then reference them with full paths. then i had to do an ssh-copy-id so it didn't require a password.
ssh -i /data/.ssh/id_rsa [email protected] "start cgminer commands" 
anyways, i'm really proud of this one. it was difficult to figure out how to make it work. lots of different moving parts coming together.
here's something i'm still working on. a remote control using the NR dashboard UI.

Q4 Community Update Email From Richard Ells

Hi Everyone!
We are coming to the close of 2018 and whilst cryptocurrency in general has had a year of turmoil, it has been a very positive year for Electroneum and I’d like to recap on what we’ve achieved this year and reveal some of what we have planned for next year. This might end up as an epic, Tolstoy length, email so my apologies if it’s too long for you – but I feel there’s a lot to say…
Firstly, let’s remember that we set out to redefine cryptocurrency altogether. Before Electroneum there were NO cryptocurrencies that were designed from the start to be widely and easily adopted. We have started to achieve the primary goal of Electroneum which is adoption. Did you know that Electroneum is the fastest growing cryptocurrency in the history of the world (I was going to say “Universe” but I really don’t know what our competitors are doing in other spiral arms of this galaxy, let alone the entire universe). Hold on! Let’s just think about that for a second! We have grown our user numbers to over 2 million holders and users of ETN in just one year. We fit the real world usage of cryptocurrency better than ANY other.
Biggest (and best) community in crypto!
Electroneum has done something here that’s never been achieved elsewhere. We have an enormous community of advocates. Users who are more than just users, they are passionate about what Electroneum is trying to do. A quick Google search of any cryptocurrency will find you some videos and some images, but with ETN there is an enormous following of hundreds of thousands of amazing people who are helping to make ETN a success. Electroneum has Fan Art. Think about that. A “boring” financial product with fan art! I’ve never seen any credit card fan art or banking fan art! If you are one of the passionate ETN believers and advocates, then I’d like to say a whopping THANK YOU to you for your input, no matter how small. You can (and are) changing the world.
Boring Statistics?
A former British Prime Minister famously quoted “There are lies, damned lies and statistics”. This is certainly true of the cryptocurrency market and as such we’ve just installed the Alexa.com (part of Amazon) certified traffic stats tool onto our website. That shows statistics for ONLY real people. You can’t fake it or exaggerate it. Did you know that if you compare the web traffic of all cryptocurrencies – we are in the top 5. If you look at active wallet numbers and actual blockchain transaction numbers, we are in the top 10 of cryptocurrencies for both. We have achieved a great deal this year, by making ETN accessible to everyone who has a smartphone.
Electroneum Lead the Market
2018 has seen us launch our Instant Payment system into BETA, be the first cryptocurrency to offer a payment integration API allowing vendors to easily accept cryptocurrency for instant transactions. We are working with the community to create easy payment plugins for all the popular ecommerce software and we’ve launched a number of them including WooCommerce which enables over 3m WooCommerce sites to accept ETN with around 15 minutes of work. I can’t overstate how important this instant payment framework is to us achieving our goals. It is a huge leap forwards for cryptocurrency. We’ve seen some great vendors come on board this year and next year I am confident we will see a huge surge of vendors, once we get live on the ground in a few strategic areas.
We are the first cryptocurrency to formally adopt KYC (know your customer – which now officially goes live on the 27th December). As the authorities of the world start to accept and understand cryptocurrency you will see why our early adoption of a regulatory framework is important to growth. Governments of the world fear cryptocurrency. We are giving them something to embrace.
We have produced hundreds of thousands of lines of code this year. I’ve seen a lot of projects talk about valuations of crypto projects based on Github Commits (this is a place where people store their open source code). Electroneum is different to most cryptocurrencies. It has both open source blockchain code that anyone is welcome to help work on AND closed source code that runs the back end such as the app, the instant payment system, and the custodial wallet system. These are the features that are making Electroneum a success and make us a real business that corporations, governments, NGOs and institutions can feel comfortable with.
The Bright Future of ETN…
This year has been a year of preparing. Growing the team (not everyone in the team wants their picture on the website – we have over 30 full time employees and access to many more part time resources).
MWC Sees Launch of Two or More Major Things…
Last year we attended MWC (mobile world congress) as the first cryptocurrency member of the GSMA. Next February we attend again (you are going to LOVE our stand, nobody has ever done anything like it!). This time we are attending with a full product and exciting news.
We launch a number of things at that show, all of which are secret for now. Two are locked in as absolutes and there are a few more than we are trying to tie in with the show! I don’t want to hint at what is coming – it’s only a couple of months before you’ll see for yourself, but it will be the base block from which we demonstrate to the business world just how usable cryptocurrency can be.
Apple iOS Launch (finally!)… and Cloud Mining too!
The first week of January will see our iOS app that includes cloud mining go into 100 user BETA. The second week we will release it to our 5000+ iOS testflight users (still in BETA) and (subject to testing) should be in the Apple Store by the end of January.
Cloud Mining for Android
Cloud mining will make the distribution of ETN much more appealing to the target audience of the unbanked. Ironically with their lower powered hardware and sporadic internet access it has been the developed world that has found it easiest to obtain some ETN. That all changes with cloud mining, where someone with the latest Samsung or iPhone will get the same value in ETN as someone with an ancient smartphone and little internet access.
We can launch cloud mining for Android subject to the successful testing on Apple devices. I think it is going to be a big success and I expect to see it on Android before the MWC show in February.
Blockchain
As you probably know we used the Monero blockchain as a stable base for the Electroneum Blockchain when we launched. We’ve been moving away from Monero and have removed many of the privacy features of Monero during 2018. 2019 will see even more privacy removed, although we intend to keep stealth addresses, to prevent vendors (or anyone else) looking into your wallet and seeing how much ETN you have – like you can with Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Some say we are not doing anything particularly different or unique with the blockchain part of our project, but the reality is that we are doing the single most important thing there is with blockchain - we are making it useable in everyday life.
Credit Card Purchase of ETN & Gig Economy
This week has been a particularly busy week with a few new exchanges coming on board and a launch of a very important part of our future “Gig Economy” system. You can now purchase ETN quickly and simply with a credit card at Indacoin (https://www.indacoin.com/en_GB/change/buy-electroneum-with-cardusd). We are working on others especially for the US citizens which indacoin currently does not cover.
This is important as when we launch our Gig Economy website in Q1 of 2019 it will enable the unbanked of the world to join the global economy when looking for work. This is one of the major areas that we see for opening up the world to understanding the power of cryptocurrency as people in developed nations become able to purchase digital services from the people of developing nations, with no barriers.
Developed nation businesses can purchase ETN with a credit card and buy software development, data entry, virtual business services, design, data research, social media management and much, much more, from a growing market of millennial entrepreneurs in the developing market. Everyone wins. You’ll see way more of this in 2019 including an e-learning system that enables those with digital skills to remotely teach others, with an ETN incentive.
As I mentioned above this should be going live in Q1 – we are trying to get that live for MWC too, but I don’t want to commit 100% to that date for this project. The good news is that we have a lot of interest in it from an NGO perspective, so when we launch it I am confident it will be a really powerful force for both enablement and empowerment of individuals but also a huge catalyst for the growth and acceptance of cryptocurrency generally.
The 2018 Cryptocurrency Market
People have been asking me “WHY!? WHHHHYYYYYY?” to the 2018, pronounced, dip in the price of cryptocurrencies across the board and I’d like to offer you my view of the 2018 cryptocurrency market and what I believe the market will focus on in the future.
The cryptocurrency markets are very new and whilst they are often compared to more mature markets, such as the equities markets, I believe there are very FEW similarities.
Some people are buying and selling cryptocurrencies based on applying technical analysis, where they look at chart patterns in the historical price and volumes to try and predict the future, others are buying based on momentum, effectively following the herd and then there are the true project believers (known in the crypto industry as hodlers!) who have bought some because they believe in the long term viability and future success of the project.
Don’t worry… I’m getting to my point…
A lesson from Warren Buffet
One of the most successful conventional traders in the world is Warren Buffet – he’s pretty good at it too, having been the richest man in the world a few times. What should we learn from him? Firstly, he’s not a huge fan of Bitcoin, in fact, he hates the stuff. Why is this and what can we learn from him? Warren hates Bitcoin because he’s a value investor, and a very good one. He doesn’t believe in chart analysis and he’s not a fan of momentum trading. He invests in PEOPLE. He invests in TEAMS and he invests in REAL THINGS.
The cryptocurrency markets are largely coupled with Bitcoin. When it moves, the market moves, and at the moment it is almost entirely driven by the herd and not by people analysing VALUE.
Herds are happy to run off cliffs as well as away from danger, hence the large swings (in both directions of the cryptocurrency markets).
Obviously, I’m a huge fan of cryptocurrencies, so Warren and I are going to differ on some views, but I absolutely know that he would look at Electroneum in a different light to Bitcoin.
We have identified and created a model for blockchain coin emissions which allows us to create a global marketing opportunity which rewards users, partners and vendors for engagement.
We have spent time building products, solutions and partnerships rather than hyping them, meaning that most people are unaware of what has really been achieved in such a short time.
The Electroneum team are fortunate to have considerable relationships across distribution partners, working closely with a number them throughout the planning and creation of our ecosystem.
In our first year, we have developed, tested and launched a much wider set of products and partner benefits than anyone expected.
We are going in to 2019 as a gateway, with a toolkit and approach that enables partners, governments and entrepreneurs to benefit from cryptocurrency; no longer is it just trading or accumulation of crypto. We stimulate every day, continual usage in the real world.
We are focused on the fundamentals of traditional business, giving people what they want and helping to achieve financial inclusion and inclusivity, by creating an end to end ecosystem for everyday use of crypto, by anyone anywhere.
The combination of our ecosystem, our partners and the scale of our community puts us in an incredibly strong position to achieve our goals of opening the world economy to every person, including the 1.8 billion unbanked.
In short, Electroneum has an actual business behind it and is delivering REAL THINGS to REAL USERS (millions of them) via partnerships with other REAL companies. We deliver value and can show future revenue streams based on demonstrated growth. These are real life business things. We know our users and that is valuable. We have access to our users and that is valuable. We understand and can chart growth, and that is valuable. The list of differences goes on. Take a look at the metrics of some of the biggest tech “unicorns” and you’ll see they are all valued on the number of real, active USERS. The only reason they have that value is because they can communicate and monetise those users, and that is where the parallel to Electroneum becomes apparent. We have no intention of substantially monetising our user base for years to come, but we have the capability to do so – and all businesses MUST have a revenue stream or potential FUTURE revenue stream.
I believe in Bitcoin, and I see it as a kind of cryptocurrency gold, but because there is so much focus on fully decentralised systems that do not know their users and are run by anonymous miners, we will find that real value investors are wary of ALL cryptocurrencies because of the mistaken impression that they are all alike.
I agree that it is hard to make a purchase of Bitcoin based on fundamentals and value, because it’s not obvious where it lies. Scarcity and a belief in the project make me a Hodler, but I can’t put a ‘fair price’ on Bitcoin. Nobody can.
Cryptocurrencies are evolving. Electroneum is unarguably more technically useful than Bitcoin because of its speed, accessibility and ability to scale, but that is not ENOUGH.
I believe that as more REAL WORLD cryptocurrency projects evolve you will see VALUE as the main driver in the cryptocurrency markets.
If a cryptocurrency project is also a conventional company with the ability to drive profits, grow larger and become a dominant brand – THEN you will see conventional investors such as Warren Buffet entering the market.
I hope that cryptocurrency volatility will be reduced as cryptocurrencies start to look and feel more like regular companies, with friendly help desks, balance sheets, contractual partnerships and accountability.
When is this going to happen?... it’s already started…
I wish you and your family the very best Christmas or Holiday period,

Of Wolves and Weasels - Day 24 - 100 BILLION coins (MwaHaHa!)

Hey all, GoodShibe here!
So... yesterday was, uh, interesting. To say the least. In a good way! For those who don't know, I had a huge outpouring of support from some very generous tippers and now, yeah... I'm still kind of wrapping my head around it. Let's just say that I immediately made tracks over to find mumzie and give her 100K DOGE for all the incredible work she does around here. Seriously, if you haven't been to /dogeducation, you should check it out - especially if you're a new-shibe!
So today we're going to chat about a somewhat interesting topic - one that's going to have long ranging effects on Dogecoin as we move forward; especially since - time and time again - we're showing the world that our founding may have been a 'joke' but we've grown far beyond that.
However, and ummjackson and billyM2K please correct me if I'm wrong, because we weren't created as a 'serious' coin, there's one potential issue coming down the pipe -- that the devs have been debating, pretty much since it went live -- which will need to be addressed.
We were created with a promise, that there will only ever be 100 Billion Dogecoins. The idea was that we, like Bitcoin, would be a deflationary currency. What 'Deflationary' means is that, over time, coins would become more valuable simply because, over time, people would lose their coins -- passwords forgotten, harddrives not backed up, etc -- and that planned-for loss of coins circulating in the economy would help ensure the continued value and rise of the ones still in circulation.
With Dogecoin that was the plan -- and that's what a number of the first users/miners bought into. A sort of Bitcoin-lite with a much lower-value individual coin, but a much higher potential marketcap. The problem is that the way Dogecoin is released, 1 block per minute, it basically means that in around 1 year, a large majority of Dogecoins will have been mined.
And how do you sustain a network when you have no more coins to mine and no incentive for people to keep mining (burning electricity at cost to keep nodes running)? And when the entire life of your coin relies on having a strong, stable network, this becomes that sort of looming cloud on the horizon.
Unlike Bitcoin, our transaction fees are incredibly low and, due to the nature of Dogecoin, the amount we'd have to raise transaction fees to make it profitable for miners, long term, is an amount that would (barring a significant increase of value for Dogecoin) have a noticeable impact on end users (us).
And so the idea was put forward that, instead of becoming a Deflationary currency, we change that initial promise and become an Inflationary currency.
What that means is that, like the USD and other common currencies, Dogecoin would add a stable number of coins each year to the market, enough to be an incentive for miners to continue mining and maintain our network. We wouldn't be a FIAT currency, per se - whereas 'fiat' means we would, like the USD, make more money 'on demand' (by 'fiat') the idea would be, instead, to put in place a long term inflation plan that lead to a stable number of coins being added over a very long period of time (100+years). The idea being that this would buy us all a very, very long time to see how/if we grow, and figure out what to do next.
Remember that even 5 years in 'technology time' is a significant span (that's like 5 whole new iPhone models away).
Now, those who are against this idea note that it's the 'deflationary' part of the currency that helps it have, maintain and grow value over time. It helps make it a reliable store of wealth. There will only ever be 21 Million Bitcoins. If 1 Million are lost, there will only ever be 20 Million Bitcoins. Etc.
Once we start adding Dogecoins beyond the planned 100 Billion, those new coins start to push down the value of the coins you have. Meaning, slowly, over time, the buying power -- how much you can 'buy' for $1, for example, decreases.
Now, for those of us who've taken up Dogecoin as a common currency, with the idea that it will be great for small, day-to-day transactions -- tipping friends, thanking artists, buying music tracks or armor for your 'toon, stuff like that -- it won't have a HUGE impact on us. But for people who bought into Dogecoin as an investment, as a store of wealth, with the idea of amassing a large number of coins, sitting on them until they become worth a significant amount, this is a problem.
But, to be fair, it's the same problem that those rich in USD are facing as well. (Granted, as a counterpoint, those that bought in were probably doing that to avoid exactly those sorts of issues).
Luckily, because our devs control the currency they have the ability to be much more agile than much larger, more lumbering economies. And, if you read that linked conversation above, you'll realize that there's a lot of fantastic, passionate minds putting real thought into this problem, they truly care about figuring out the best balance for all of us.
One possible solution, which would allow for us to possibly maintain the 'deflationary' nature of the currency is to, over time, as more and more coins get mined, move the running of the network over to the QT wallet. So that each user of the currency also becomes a node, helping to keep the whole network running. There's a ton of technical hurdles to pulling that off, and it'd be difficult, but it's one -- of many -- possibilities.
The benefit of making the coin Inflationary, over a long stretch of time, is that it helps keep Doge... humble. It means that our coin will, most likely, never be worth thousands or hundreds (or possibly even $1) each -- depending on adoption, the DOGEconomy, etc -- but it will mean that our DOGEs stay perfect as your nickles and quarters sort of thing (which is still a massive increase from current valuation).
As a community, as the people who've taken up the coin as our own, we should work towards a solution the benefits us all. Those who believed in DOGE from the beginning (you know, 7 weeks ago), who had foresight and treated DOGE as an investment, deserve to be rewarded for their faith (DOGE could've just as easily gone the other way and they would've lost it all).
I hope we can all remember that many of our 'rich shibes' are active, contributing members of our community who were lured here by the same principles of friendship and kindness, compassion and camaraderie that brought the rest of us.
There's room for all of us to have fun and play... and profit too.
And that's why I think that the more minds on the problem, the better. How would you like to see your coin grow over time? What do you hope the future of Dogecoin looks like?
How can we make sure our Dogecoins live on for future generations to enjoy?
It's a complex question and there are good people working on the solution. Right now the plan seems to be to wait and see how the Halving goes. How it effects our currency, and where we go from there. But keep on thinking, keep on dreaming.
Because we're all strapped in together and the moon is thattaway.
We'll get there, my friends.
Together!
It's 8:45AM EST and we're at 40.14% of DOGEs found. Our Global Hashrate is rising slightly from ~90 to ~91 Gigahashes per second and our Difficulty is holding steady at around ~1269.
The Halving is officially 2 weeks away, today.
Also, this is your 2 week Valentines Day warning for those of you who might've forgotten. Hint: Nothing says love like a new Mining Rig :D)
As always, I appreciate your support!
GoodShibe
EDIT: For those 'worried':
It's a coin that was created as a 'joke', how much long-term planning were you expecting people to put into it?
No one expected it to blow up like it did.
Hindsight is 20/20 -- and there's still lots of time to work out a solution, together.

What they really don't wan't you to know about Dash!

Dash is breaking away with regards to integrations, partnerships and developments that advocates of other Crypto Currencies have become frightened of Dash's future dominance. Unfortunately for most of these other Crypto Currency projects Dash as a platform is well and truly in the driving seat on so many levels.
Lets take a look at some of the achievements in 2017 and upcoming events:
More big news still to come in the coming month

All The Longreads (So Far)

I'm trying to work on a system that would pull only the longreads links out and shove them into their own RSS feed.

But, I should at least share all the links, by date, in a post. Please enjoy all the longreads:
