Digicidal you always post such long posts!

sure some people like me will always want to chase the best coin for quick returns. others though will want a more stable coin to mine such as yourself.

I know you keep trying to make your point & I understand the point your trying to make. choosing a coin to mine has different factors if your looking for long term holdings.

Difficulty fluctuations
Exchange rate stability
potential growth.

It all depends how your approaching mining though I guess? if you want to just leave it for days at a time then yeah stability is a high priority!
Personally I don't care what I mine tbh, Im happy switching on a day to day basis & getting the best I can.
I still think there is a few better out there!

As for convenience with it all that's actually down to each person I guess, if your working away from home for days at a time? or you work from home? work long shifts or part time?
that would all depend on the person really to decide what works for them.

please stop posting such long post's man! you make my head hurt!

I'll keep this short for you:

1) Wasn't trying to make a point... was offering an observation - there was absolutely no advice or directional commentary in my response to you at all - you asked a question (regardless of whether you meant it rhetorically or not) and I provided an observation.
2) I type around 100wpm... product of coding for a living... my post took me about 2 mins to write - sorry it made your head hurt... but based on feedback I've received... I'm likely to continue. tongue.gif
3) Switching is fine and as stated numerous times - that's what I do as well... I just don't dump everything I mine, because I don't necessarily believe the best price is the first price. wink.gif

Really it all comes down to what your priorities are... and despite what it seems I would prefer that you did not change yours. It's actually a significant benefit to people such as myself to have other miners hopping around from coin to coin and creating volatility on the exchanges with their dumps. I will always be a trader... my mining days are pretty much over - other than the 3Mh/s I've had for over a year which is mostly for acquisition alone anyway. I believe in DOGE and BTC which is why I like that trade pair... after all - if a large trade goes sideways on me... it just means I wound up with a crypto I believe in... doesn't really matter if it's on the BTC or the DOGE side of things - either one works.

However, with DOGE/BTC I have to make 10-20 trades per day to make .1BTC - .25BTC - thanks to large pools dumping MAX I wound up making .5BTC in less than 30 minutes two days ago (got dumped to just above .002 and immediately shot back up to just under .003 in no time...

The important thing to note, and the entire point of my response - is that what both of us do... takes a great deal of time. Some people don't have or don't want to spend that time... which is why they allow pools like middlecoin or similar to take most of their profits. Just for laughs I pointed one of my workers at middlecoin for an hour to see if it was as bad as I thought... it was much, much worse:



I can guarantee that it is much more profitable to simply mine something like DOGE or even LTC for that matter than to deal with that. ^ rolleyes.gif

From personal experience as I spent 3 months mining LTC and holding...

If you want safe.. LTC is the way to go.. If you want quick cash as a dump coin with a bit of risk behind it.. find a alternate coin for a few days or a week then go find another and repeat..

Was going to give Max a go, downloaded the installer but it's not an installer so the GUI doesn't work and you have a ball ache to set things up so I gave that a miss

Tried to do Mincoin but the wallet doesn't want to connect to update and if it does it only has 1 connection so I've given up on that too

For now I guess I stick with Doge, unless you guys can recommend something ?

High profits seem to be inversely proportional to ease of use/setup. If all coin mining were as easy as installing a nice GUI and running it without setup and know-how, everyone would be doing it, and then the profitability would drop. Hence why a lot of coins have reached a high level of difficulty, and therefore low profitability.

If I understand you correctly, you're referring to the wallet being so difficult to set up. If that's the case, you may just have to put your faith in an exchange that will act as a holding account for you.

MCXNow is reputable, and can spit out a MAX holding address for you in a matter of minutes. max.1gh.com will give you pointers on installing and using the correct miner software. Combine the two and you're off mining max.

It just comes down to if you're willing to trust an exchange as a holding account in order to realize higher profits over coins like LTC. Eventually, wallet issues will be worked out, and you can withdraw from the holding account into your own wallet if it makes you feel warmer inside. biggrin.gif It's just like traditional investments...lower risk, lower potential profit.

downloaded latest AMD Catalyst 14.1 drivers

For Ubuntu 64-bit:
sudo apt-get install build-essential cdbs dh-make dkms execstack dh-modaliases linux-headers-generic fakeroot libqtgui4 lib32gcc1

cd Downloads

unzip amd-catalyst-14.1-betav1.3-linux-x86.x86_64.zip

sudo sh *.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/raring

then it takes about 10 mins and says.............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
Extraction Failed

signal caught cleaning up

I've tried this a few times but keeps saying the same god dam thing? also ive tried different drivers i.e 13.11 and keeps coming up with the same thing.

Hope someone can assist, thanks

Brad.

What's your specific version? I'm almost positive at this point you need specific drivers for specific versions (or at the very least, specific steps), even within a single distro like ubuntu.

Can you explain what you mean here, are you saying it's more profitable to solo mine Doge/LTC than joining pools OR it's more profitable simply trading instead of mining ? If it's the former can you explain how you came to those findings ?

It's not so much difficulty as inconvenience, I'd rather have my own wallet set up just for extra security as I currently have a Import/export wallet & a holdings wallet for each coin I deal with, the holdings wallet only I know the address. I'm just not used to the whole DOS based stuff any longer and I was in a rush to get into it. I'll get around to setting it up and it's something I'm willing to do as I'll probably learn something from it and once I've done one the next ones will be easy as I can understand the code and setup process but it's tiresome for me. I'd rather just ease of use off the bat but it's like you say if it was easy it wouldn't be worth as much

I'm having so much trouble it's unbelievable ha! It's not saying your computer is running in low graphics mode or something like that? Didn't even get chance to follow your link? Argh
