[Finished]OCN's Fall ASIC Giveaway

post #1 of 129
Thread Starter 

What?

After three reviews for ASICs were posted to overclock.net (ZeusMiner Thunder X6, GAWMiners Falcon & RockMiner R-Box) these ASICs need to find a new home. To create unbiased reviews, the reviewer isn't allowed to keep the ASICs after the review period has ended. Because of this, we have all three of these ASICs up for giveaway!

 

How?

To be eligible to enter this giveaway, you must meet the following requirements:

 

  • Account must be one month or older, at the time of posting this thread
  • Account must have 50 posts, at the time of posting this thread

 

To enter this giveaway, make a post describing where you first heard about cryptocurrencies. Do not post more than once in this thread, as it won't increase your chance of winning.

 

Details

  • Winners will be chosen on Monday, September 22nd and names of the winners will be publicly posted in this thread.
  • Only one ASIC per winner. If by chance somebody wins two ASICs, the second ASIC they won will be redrawn for.
  • If your region requires a skill testing question to win a giveaway, the skill testing question is the following: What is half of 8 squared?
  • Winners will be required to pay for all shipping costs. These items are located in Saskatchewan, Canada and will be shipped out at the winner's expense. The winner can choose any sort of shipping they'd like, preferably from Canada Post / USPS.

In. Hmm, hard to say exactly when I heard about cryptocurrencies. I may have read an article about BTC ages ago when it first came out, but then forgot about it until BTC started making some big moves, like when it went from the $15/BTC to $200/BTC, then it really got some coverage and interest.

I first heard about BitCoin on a podcast, GRC's Security Now! podcast. It intrigued a lot but I was mostly using my PCs for folding back then... I've stopped my server farm/cluster all together now that I bought a house though, but the coins I did get and the proceeds from selling the hardware helped pay for it biggrin.gif

I heard about cryptos from a friend. I fought (debated) with him until mid 2013. Then I was converted.

I heard about Bitcoin in January of 2010 but didn't take much action. I lurk on freenode quite a bit and there was a lot of hype around it. I was around when the 10k pizza buy happened.

I first heard about crytocurrencies about two weeks before that massive bitcoin surge earlier this year. I had heard about it and how easy it was. At the time, I was a trainer in a tech support call centre and every night between 9PM-9AM no one was in the building and there were over 300 computers sitting idly.

I had a brilliant idea to setup miners on all of the computers but never bothered for fear of losing my job. Had I have actually done it, I probably wouldn't need a job anymore mad.gif

I first heard about Crypto currency from my brother who already started mining, and then I got interested in it and gave a shot at it, but haven't made a cent worth of bitcoins yet lol. Hoping this would change that biggrin.gif Thanks Cam51037 for the oppurtunity thumb.gif

I first heard about Bitcoin on OCN as a way to subsidize the cost of an AMD GPU thumb.gif

I first heard about cryptocurrencies about 2 year ago. It was a story of a guy who paid a pizza for 36 Bitcoins ( about 170000 USD now) in New York. I didn't knew what was "Bitcoins". So I searched for it and read the complete story on wikipedia and other sites. I was amazed by the system, and directly began to mining. As today I'm mining, but only in winter. My house is really really well insulated, and apart the mining PC, I don't need any other source of heating, so you can say it can be usefull smile.gif (I live in Switzerland, really cold winter there...)
