  1. Announcing the DragonMint miner series The DragonMint 16T miner is the world’s most efficient Bitcoin miner, running faster and cooler than any competing miners. It’s the culmination of over 12 months research and development which has resulted in major advancements in mining technology including a brand new generation of ASIC mining chips. The DM8575 ASIC runs at a staggering 85GH per chip with power efficiency of around 0.075J/GH. The DragonMint miner is the first step in a long strategy, which started in December 2016, to bring much needed competition and innovation to the Bitcoin mining arena. Over 100 world class experts and leaders in their respective fields have been contributing to and working on the project, including chip designers, electronics hardware specialists, and software designers. The project is motivated by, and driven to help facilitate greater decentralisation in Bitcoin mining at all levels, and make sha256 great again. Now that we have finished the major prototyping and small run batch zero, we are ready to move onto mass production. This is the first stage of rollout, and simultaneously, relationships are being built with other channels to bring a wide variety of products based on the new ASIC chips. Unlike many other mining projects, the DragonMint is not a design based on simulations. Around $30 million dollars have already been spent on research, development and prototyping miners, writing software and producing small batches of silicon wafers. The time, complexity and cost cannot be underestimated. The next step is mass production. Producing miners from scratch takes around 4 months including manufacturing the silicon chips. We are taking preorders for the next generation miner for delivery starting in March 2018. We would like to see other Bitcoin mining hardware manufacturers compete equally although it is currently quite challenging due to both heavy competition and prohibitive startup costs. One of the ways we can assist is by publishing board designs and software to allow newcomers to iterate on already advanced design. Production of competitive ASIC chips is a whole different level of difficulty, so we believe this can be alleviated by making chips available in bulk to competitors. Bitcoin is inherently collaborative and we believe the incentives are aligned to promote a healthy mining ecosystem that is still profitable for the participants. All our strengths aside, we recognise that success in this field is an uphill battle and the game is extremely competitive. Because of the time taken to design new technology and bring it to market, time advantage is a key strategy in order to gain a foothold against formidable competition. For this reason we will defer publishing board designs or software (either directly or through partner channels), until the first batch of miners is near ready for shipping. Because we have considerable costs to recoup, particular details of our process will also not be made available until closer to shipping of the first batches, to give us a better chance of succeeding and being able to drive forward with innovation into the future. We will publish more details on our blog, on this website and on Twitter @halongmining. Visit Website https://halongmining.com/
  2. Wealth Managers Are Being Inundated With Calls About Bitcoin At 74, Cumberland Advisors’ David Kotok has guided wealthy clients through a long career’s worth of bubbles and crashes. Now he’s being inundated with questions about the latest soaring asset to confound investors -- bitcoin. “Clients bring up bitcoin all the time,” said Kotok. “They think it’s cool. It has the newness, which is attractive to some people, though others would say newness is a risk they don’t want to take.” Wealth managers across the U.S. are fielding calls and emails from clients worried they’re missing out on something big by not owning bitcoin. While most advisers don’t recommend buying such a volatile asset with no intrinsic value, they do have tips for clients who have taken the plunge, or are dead set on doing so. The cryptocurrency has been whipsawing Wall Street: UBS Group AG, the world’s largest wealth manager, is shunning bitcoin allocations because of a lack of government oversight, while Michael Novogratz is starting a $500 million hedge fundto wager on digital assets. As bitcoin mania moves to Main Street, thanks to its spectacular rise from about $750 to $8,200 in a year, five advisers offer some suggestions. Kotok, whose Sarasota, Florida-based firm manages about $3 billion for high net-worth clients, warns them off bitcoin, calling it a classic momentum trade. But for investors who own it and brag about the gains, he advises them to take their original investment off the table. Better to gamble with house money. To Kevin Grimes, president of Westborough, Massachusetts-based Grimes & Co., the best way to learn about the market is to have some skin in the game. So he bought a couple bitcoin on Coinbase Inc. earlier this year. "Laughing off bitcoin could wind up being a big mistake,” Grimes, 42, said. Yet at this point he sees buying bitcoin as a Vegas-style gamble. Clients who buy it should do so with money they don’t mind losing. "Bitcoin could go to zero and be a scam, and it could go up to numbers no one has conceived of yet," he said.

  3. Bitcoin and ethereum are falling after a $31 million crypto heist Major cryptocurrencies bitcoin and ethereum are falling against the dollar on Tuesday morning after a $31 million heist elsewhere in the digital currency world. Tether, which created a cryptocurrency called USDT that is pegged to the dollar, said in a blog post on Tuesday that "funds were improperly removed from the Tether treasury wallet through malicious action by an external attacker." $30,950,010 was taken in total on Sunday, the US company said. "As Tether is the issuer of the USDT managed asset, we will not redeem any of the stolen tokens, and we are in the process of attempting token recovery to prevent them from entering the broader ecosystem," Tether said. Tether is down 0.3% against the dollar on the back of the news, according to CoinMarketCap.com.

  9. Thanks for posting. Just an FYI if you want to put your video in the header vs. the post - either way is fine.
  10. I don't have any more information about them then you do. Hopefully, the issue you have gets resolved.
  11. Topic VIDEOS!

    Topic Videos are now available. Allows members to add videos to new and existing topics. Included options for manually entering a support media url or adding a placeholder image until a video is ready. Add any media url that current supports. e.g. Youtube, Vimeo, Vine When creating or editing a thread, click on the "Video" tab which will appear at the top of the thread you're editing / starting.
