5 Years into Cryptocurrencies

Bitcoin Now


$/₿ Closing price from coinmarketcap for each day.

My Dad

My Dad showed high interesst into Bitcoin and how the mining works. I talked alot about how much fees are there and how it should be traded without the use of any Fiat currency. Some sites I showed to him where

TX Street
Blockchain
BITListen
PrivacyPros

and many more.

RTX 3070

As my PC turned 5 and my GPU needed a upgrade from the GTX 970 I decided to by a RTX 3070. 5888 Cores pushing the hasrate upto ~49,19 MH/s@ethash.

Tor Donation

I donated some of my Bitcoins to the Tor project. I contribute by running a relay node and now also a donation. How much was dontained I will not tell you but a three digit number.

Nicehash - Instant swap

I switched my miners to nicehash to have a instant coin swap from the coins mined on Daggerhashimoto to Bitcoin. Should have done this in earlier days but it's never to late at bitcoin. Since I think that only one coin should exists and this is Bitcoin the real and only one. But I will not exchange my other assets in Bitcoin, guess there will be also some good amount of effort payback any time in the future.

ZFS RAIDZ 2/4 disks died

I know that this envent is no in any way related to my experiences and events with cryptocurrencies but thought I would like to have this also as a reminder back. I am running alot of applications on my server like this website, an openthereum ETC node and many other things. Two out of four disk died in my ZFS RAIDZ resulting in a loss of data stored in the pool no snapshots where made. I was sucsesfull at restoring important files like including this website and some other files.

Ethereum Classic Phoenix Upgrade

Ethereum Classic upgraded to Phoenix (ECIP 1088) and can now offer the same environment as Ethereum ETH. I upgraded my parity node to a openethereum to keep up the support of the ETC network

Bitcoin Halving to 6,25 BTC/Bock

Happy Halving !!!. Yet another halving I am proud of seeing it happen.

Miners wear out

My cards on my miners stating to show some sings of ware out after nearly 3 years. I will remove the fans which has stopped working and place just regular case fans to continue cooling the cards. Hope to see them still working for atleast 2 more years.

The Corona Virus

Three months into 2020 and Bitcoin and the hole crypto marked experienceing a ~40% drop in price. I would call this a normal move from Bitcoin nothing more to say.

New Mining Pool

I wanted to help to distribute the hasrate in the ETC network therefor I moved to an smaller Pool with less hasrate.

Moved all Funds

I watned to have a overview over my hole portfolio therfor I moved all my funds in to my Ledger.

Positiv profits

For the past 6 months I paid more for mining then gained by it. I see it a hobby and that makes me even more happier than I can do it also now without any los.

First "bigger" movements in 2020

The cryptomarkted seems to move a little. Etherum Classic has gained over 7 days more than 30%.

Happy Birthday Ethereum Classic

Ethereum Classic is already three years old and has major differences to Ethereum.

4 Years into Cryptocurrencies

Crypto stamp

I today resived my ordered Crypto stamps. They are digital post stamps and also a collectible.

More infos : crypto.post.at

Bicoin on the raise (again)

Price is raising again.

Positiv profits

Over the last months I had a hard time to continue mining until today. The profit changed from negative to a positive profit. Hope to see soon more profit to get back all the minus build up by the previous months.

Price up trend

Over the last 7 days Bitcoin experienced price increases from ~5 800 $ --> 8 200$. Happy to see some price changes recently.

Large Bitcoin Collider (LBC)

After I got a free instance on Amazon Web Services I started to compiled and run the hash collider on the instance. This collider tries to find a hash collision mainly in the 2160bit key lenght range. This instance got only one CPU and collides 0,07 Mkeys/s = 70 000 Keys/s. I also installed the collider on my PC to comapre it and I got 4,20 Mkeys/s = 4 200 000 Keys/s. About 909 677 keys/s per CPU core on my PC

More infos : Large Bitcoin Collider (LBC) | About

f00dbabe Ledger Update

After a long time a had a relook on the problem that Ledger had. I saw that they made a upgrade of the firmware so I tried it out. Felt now more safe but they said there were no improvements because with another bootloader they were not able to obtain private keys.

More infos : Ledger Nano S firmware v1.5.5

Price Jump

The Price just Jumped from 4 190,90 to 4 849,46 in less than one hour.

3 Years into Cryptocurrencies

BCT - Bitcoin Classic Token Mainnet Launch

The first "mineable" ERC223 Token on the Ethereum Classic chain had his launch, and I am a team member of the BCT dev team. I work in the marketing and moderation section. I started to mine some BCT tokens at the difficulty of 8216 with a token miner software and I used 1 ETC for minting the Tokens.

Negative Profit

The first time I saw at WhatToMine with my configuration that I am making negative profit. But I dodn't care about it a lot still just a hobby. I keep continuing mining ETC. More than 18 TeraHash.

Hot Summer = Hot Miners

One out of two miners was getting very hot with a temperature of 76°C. I ordered some extra 120mm fans to protect them from overheating. It was the first summer where I had my miners set to the final destination where they gonna stay and mine.

Happy Birthday Ethereum Classic

Ethereum Classic is since two years split from Ethereum and has developed very good.

f00dbabe

The Hardware Wallet "Ledger Nano S" the Device I use can be loaded with another bootloader from e.g a malware on the host or a person with physical access. In other words someone could steral my cryptocurrencies. This put me into fear.

More infos : wallet.fail

Fired from Callisto Network

The reason why I got fired from Callisto Network was that to many people where working in the team.

Admin and Moderator

I got admin in the Telegram group @ethclassic and @etcchat. Anthony and Cowoperate are happy to have another admin helping in the group to keep it clean. Also, Anthony added me as a moderator in the Ethereum Classic Forum to help him also there.

More infos : forum.ethereumclassic.org

Price up trend

After all those bad days I see a good uptrend coming for the next days. Altcoins are also recovering to previous prices. Bitcoin again back over 10k

Price Dipping

Huge Price Dip to the 6k $ Line. A strong floor holing the price up to don't drop under 6 000 $. Mt.Gox hacker "Nobuaki Kobayashi" sold 18 000 BTC on market.

Red Markets

Two days of fully red percentages. The low of BTC has been reached at 9 402,29. Price was equals to the Price on the 26.Nov 2017. 52 days of rising where destroyed in just 2 days

HODL !

China wants to block all connections to crypto exchanges that caused all cryptocurrencies to drop from a total marked cap of 700 000 000 USD to 414 000 000 USD on the 17 Jan 2018. Also, the marked where over bought and now it's correction time.

9 000$ = 1 Bitcoin

After 9 days the BTC hit the 9k line.

Ledger Wallet

I decided to buy a hardware wallet it is more secure than a normal application wallet like Coinomi or Jaxx. I feel unsafe while using my phone or my pc. The private key just can get stolen if you install any kind of malware or virus on the device. The App is always connected to the internet. The cool thing about a hardware wallet that you need to confirm the transaction physically on the device via physical pressing those buttons.

8 000$ = 1 Bitcoin

Bitcoin just touched the 8k line and stays near 8 000$ at 7,8k-7,9k.

Bitcoin Coin Split BCH

After the Chain split on 1.Aug 2017 I got now on the Bitcoin Cash chain also some coins. Jaxx released the new wallet version on the 9.Nov 2017 so this is when I claimed my BCH. I'm Happy about some free coins. (But they should be worth nothing.)

7 000$ = 1 Bitcoin

After only 20 days the BTC has risen over 1 000 $ in Price.

6 000$ = 1 Bitcoin

I saw that the Bitcoin price was over 6 000 $. Everywhere I saw posts with the new "All Time High".

Byzantium Ethereum Hardfork

I am not really happy what Ethereum is doing. That is why I switched over to Ethereum Classic. Ethereum is going to be on PoS not longer on the old concept PoW. PoW = Miners and Hash Power are needed. POS = Miners and Hash Power are NOT needed.

5 000$ = 1 Bitcoin

In just 60 minutes the price spikes from 4 922,00$ to 5 200,60$. The total of traded BTC and USD in that 1 hour where: 1 430 BTC worth 700 000$. This amount where just traded in a small time window of 60 minutes.

Hard Days for Bitcoin

After that shut out of the government of China Bitcoin has dropped very hard but in only 6 hours the price recovers 750$ up and spiked to 3694,75$.

China Banning Bitcoins

A huge Exchange need to close because the government of China has discussed it that it will be closed at the 30.Sep 2017.

Price Spikes to 4975,04$ / BTC

Near the 5k line the price fears and didn't pass that line. Bitcoin marked cap of 81 060 600,00$.

Third Miner

The Miner was a present from my parents. They asked me if I want something different I said No. For the 3rd Miner I have got two Sapphire RX 570 and one Sapphire RX 470. I modded them to get the best efficiency out of them. Before I have modded (Flashed) them I only got 24MH/s with a power consumption of 120Watt/Card. After flashing, I got them to 80 Watt and nearly 30MH/s (29,85MH/s) per Card.

4 000$ = 1 Bitcoin

8 days after the 3000$ mark has been surpassed now also the 4k is broken down and ready to go to moon.

3 000$ = 1 Bitcoin

The 3k mark has been passed after the Segwit Hardfork.

Poloniex has been sized (Back Online)

The worst moment when you want to login to your Trading Account but the Website isn't there. I though what has happened to. I freaked out I had recently bought with Bitcoins some Ethereum Classic and now they are gone. After more than 25 hours they are back up and the first thing I did was paid out all my Ethereum Classic.

Bitcoin Hard Fork (Bitcoin Cash)

Bitcoin has forked to take the Segwit code. At 8:12:41 PM Block #478559 was the first Mined block of the new Forked coin.

Happy Birthday Ethereum Classic

One year after the 1 920 000 Block Ethereum Classic is now one year old.

Bought XX Ethereum Classic on Poloniex

I bought @ 0,00670000 BTC/ETC exactly XX ETC's and also XX ETC's @ 0,00720000 and at 0,00840000 again XX ETC. ETC Price was around 19 USD

X BTC on Poloniex

I sold my ETH @ 0.14000000BTC/ETH and got X BTC. A big dream of mine came true.

Mining now Ethereum Classic

I started to mine ETC because I can get more coins than at Ethereum and I also heard about the Ethereum PoS switch which I don't like.

2 000$ = 1 Bitcoin

The 2k sell orders have been bought and another goal was opened ... the 3000$.

Second Miner

I got myself an own miner, just for my self and only me gets the profit of it. Two Sapphire RX 470 8GB with 24MH/s per card, but they are having a problem with the DAG size like all other RX 400 and 500 series the hashrate is decreasing. Sapphire where trying to fix that issue.

All time high since 30.Nov 2014

First time after 815 days the Bitcoin is higher than 1155$ again.

1 000$ = 1 Bitcoin

That was the first time I saw a four digit number at my phone as I checked the price of BTC at 22:00PM.

1 Year in Cryptocurrencies

Sold First Bitcoin

Bought ethOS from gpuShack

I bought for 29,90$ the IMG file from gpuShack for a better mining experience.

Ethereum Classic was Born

DAO hack in Ethereum hacked 3 600 000 ETH. Ethereum has forked to undo the Hack and Ethereum Classic is form now on the original chain.

Frist Trade on Poloniex

I sold 0,1 ETH for BTC @ 0,01651000 BTC/ETH

Bitcoin Halving to 12,5 BTC/Bock

Happy Halving !!!

First Miner

This miner I have bought with a friend of mine who also had that dream to have an own miner. We have got the Sapphire R9 390 Nitro, and we over clocked it to 32,2MH/s. We had hard times with running the miner continuous. We had many down times caused some times by the router and sometimes the overclocked GPU was just to height set.

First Mined Ethereum Payout

I got 0.10089748 ETH from Dwarfpool worth 1,67$. I hashed with my MSI GTX 960 in PC with 18MH/s.

CLD Mine Closed (Scam)

Technical Problems they said on the Website but it wasn't they just scammed a lot of people with a good Cloudmining website. I had also invested some Bitcoins and I also got some withdraws of some Bitcoins(BTC), Dogecoins(DOGE), Litecoins(LTC), and Redcoins(RDD) but not all I have in the site invested. Next day I knew that only one you can trust is your own Miner.

Bought first Bitcoins

I bought my first Bitcoins on that day. I bought from a local Bitcoin a Bitcoin ATM at Hauptbahnhof in Vienna. 20 Euros went in to the machine and I have got 0,04972000 BTC. First Time that I saw so "many" Bitcoins in my wallet.

Send first Bitcoions

I have made the first Bitcoins Transaction from my wallet to another. The Transaction has got 66.125 Satoschi to send over the Blockchain to another wallet with a fee of 500 Satoschi..

Resived first Bitcoins

I received my first 17.795 Satoschi from playing roles on Freebitco.in I have got more than 1000 Satoschi/h. 1022 Satoschi/played roll.

First contact with Bitcoin

I first searched for "Bitcoin" on my mobile phone on the 26.Dec 2015 at 11:58am. It was my first search on google that I have made to read a bit about Bitcoin. The reason why I started to search this kind of things was because I wanted to earn money that is complete in controll of mine and no one could control or regulate it.
