Elite mining Club - Cloud miner
Hi all! I am fairly new to whole cryptocurrency market, however I have learned a fair amount since I became interested. After many hours researching, practising and trying to mine, I stumble across a website called eliteminingclub Now it is a cloud miner that allows you to mine, deposit and exchange what you mine and deposit for more power, known as 5RSD. My only problem is that I have seen no proof of this being legitimate, is this a Ponzi scam? I so far haven't come across anybody mentioning this particular cloud miner so I wanted to hear peoples opinions. When I joined the site they gave me a free bonus of 500 DOGE coins, which I exchanged for 0.49 5RSD power, each currency that is available to mine (bitcoin, litecoin, ethereum, dash coin and doge coin) because of their value when exchanged you get different amounts of 5RSD power. For example if I deposited 1 bitcoin, I would exchange it for 1000 5RSD, which would mine a total of 0.25 BTC (500 pounds) per month with said power....sounds good right?! However my worries come down to the obvious Ponzi scheme, if all the numbers that I see on screen are real, whether or not I would have my deposits stolen from me and show me false returns upon investing with them, how big is there server? is there a limit to their hashing power or what? none of this is said on their website which makes me question it of course, but I seriously don't want to invest if this could rip me off.
You have heard the expression "it's better to have loved and loss, than never to have loved at all." Lies, what folk often forget is the psychological and emotional toll that multiple failed relationships have on people, each one chips away at your mental health and adds baggage that stays with you for most of your life. I have no idea what day it is today but I start each morning with tears flooding my face and a crippling desire to not exist anymore. I'd like to drop my life story here on the offhand that someone, somewhere, reads this and can relate with me on some level - throwaway for good measure, brace yourself for a really long read, location: UK/NO Early life:I was lucky enough that my family could afford to place me in a posh school for pretentious wizards. Unfortunately this education was wasted on me as my depression unwillingly began when I was thirteen years old, yet I could not comprehend what depression was at this age. I was also addicted to the video game: world of warcraft (WoW). Both the cloudyness of being down and the constant thought of when can I get home for my 'fix' left me void of motivation to partake in education. University life: I had zero social skills due to 200+ days I had racked up in WoW but somehow managed to land a girl from a club, let's call her X, X was half British and half Norwegian, she was shy, family orientated and equally inexperienced in life. We did nothing but watch TV, the rest of this chapter is boring, let's fast forward. UK worklife: Through the aid of a lecturer I scored a job working for a top US ISP in a data centre 5 hours north where I lived, the city was dirty and work gave me crippling anxiety. When you're anxious + depressed your judgement is clouded, colors are less vivid and all food tastes the same. I constantly made elementary mistakes which only made the anxiety and depression worse, I never focused in school and the stimulation from gaming destroyed my attention span. Four years past and although she never vocalize these words, X really wanted to start a family. X was also an engineer and quite intelligent. We had spontaneous intercourse one night and later I worried it could lead to a pregnancy, she reassured me it was impossible on her current cycle. I return after a twelve hour night shift to discover a positive pregnancy test, prominently left on the bathroom counter. I was twenty one years old with no life experience, shocked and dismayed, did I even love X or did I simply love the security a relationship brings? I push for an abortion and she reluctantly agrees (I know, I'm an asshole). Things get weird, nothing is familiar anymore. I'm tired of my job, hate the dirty city and pose the idea to X that we move to Norway, she's fluent, I'm lost, what could go wrong? Grand adventure: I got a job for another US tech company before leaving UK, we travel to Oslo with our possessions and Gandalf the dog and ferry and drive our way across UK, up Denmark and across to Norway. I did not integrate well, mostly my fault and the fact we moved based on a semi ultimatum. X is unemployed for 6 months. We had been dating six years at this point, I had an emerald engagement ring. X finally gets a programmer job but cheats on me with the guy twice her age who mentored her. I spiral hard, new country, confused, lost, heartbroken, they speak great English in Norway but I didn't know any Norwegian and this blew my anxiety and depression up. I drink for a week straight. I got into bitcoin and crypto mining as a hobby before it exploded, then I discovered this could be used to buy narcotics off the darkweb. Twenty six years old and I'd never touched a cigarette or drugs other than alcohol. I buy benzodiazepines off the darknet. This opened the floodgates as it temporarily cured my 'issues' and my quest was to try the rest. V: Before online dating turned to shit I met V, half Norwegian half American, lots of fun, I kept up the drug routine and expanded my desk draw with a variety of disassociatives, psychadelics, depressants and stimulants. I wanted to move to California with V as our vacations there were eye opening, I got denied after roughly 150 job applications, serendipitously I got a targeted email from a renowned tech company doing R&D work in the video conferencing market, dream company and dream job, depression and anxiety prevail. V and I still had fun but I went crazy and occasionally psychotic. I pushed V away and we split and then realised I was back to square X, this prompted my first suicide attempt using a litre of sambuca, 50mg diazapam and a gram of mdma in the hopes my organs would cook whilst I was in a benzo sleep state, I took the pills and put the bottle to my head, I passed out before I could reach for the mdma baggy. I woke up in hospital ICU 36 hours later. When I woke the first thing I tried to do is strangle myself with the beeping machines power cable, staff intervened and I was placed in a psych ward for a while. The dream: The job was perfect, I should be happy, I was under qualifyied but these people enjoy the stories and bullshit I spew in interviews. Two years pass, nothing changes, I'm lonely, abuse takes over. Usual life is pointless angle, I've tested all the drugs at this point except opioids. I order heroin with the sole intention of permanent overdose. No toleranse I snort there entire bag, I sink into my bed, no, further, I sank through the ground and down into the earth's crust. It felt horrible. A part of me didn't want to die, just sleep forever, I call my Swedish friend and explain the overdose, he calls and ambulance. Hell: I wake up in hospital very psychotic, everyone is trying to kill me, the walls are caving in and extremely colorful smoke floods the room, the tv gives reports of a male rapist and the possible suspect is me, I feel the hospital is in on the jig and see them trying to take DNA from me (blood) in an attempt to frame me for this non existed crime (why would Norwegian news be in English?). One night I escape, I run far but I don't know where I am or how to navigate the hospital, security track me down and escort me back to my bed. The next day a tall in stature, ripped, private security guard appears at my door. Yes! Finally protection from the nurses with no faces and the snipers outside that I've been ducking all week. Wrong, so, so, wrong, I later found out he was there to stop me escaping and to protect the staff from me. I cried in broad daylight when I figured this out. Doctors told me they ran MRI's in the extended duration I was unconscious to check for brain activity, no dignity left at this point. Fast forward, back to the psych ward, familiar faces. Realization: I was staying in this country simply for the job yet I was still insanely depressed, lonely and no ambition to integrate with the knowledge of the fact that I'm here only because of X. I met another girl called Y, we bonded over drugs unfortunately, this is what my life has become, she was nice but attraction faded, we lived together for six months on and off, work was getting more intense I was making more mistakes due to the usual three things, Y had a hash smoking habit, we smoked a lot but I couldn't handle the pressure anymore and I decide to move back to England. Familiar land: My tech job and incredible manager let me teleconference work from home for a bit whilst I landed on my feet. Problem is I never landed, I stayed with my mom for a bit, she has bipolar and schizophrenia. This is after my parents divorce, my dad was an esteemed doctor, saw the signs, tried his best but couldn't help as she did not believe there was a problem but everyone else is looking at the fucking huge elephant in the room - I'm talking about the mental health stigma, not my mom, she's only mildly obese. She is money obsessed, she divorced my dad for cash. She knew I had an engineer job and wanted me to fund renovations on the house she got from the 60/40 cash split in the divorce. I did not oblige, and called her irrational over some remarks she made. Her response was "well atleast I haven't been in as many psych wards as you" I got mad and flipped a table in the hall, nothing got damaged, heated reaction. She called the police on me for... not paying her lifestyle, or making noise. Anyway, her property her rules, the really friendly and pretty cool police obliged and drove me to my dad at a secret location due to being afraid of what my mom is capable of. I don't want to go down this road but my father lives a lot of secrecy and I could write a book on the psychology that binds his half of the family together. New beginnings: I rush and find rented accommodation. Things seem good. I meet a new girl Z. Now Z is incredibly rude but I was attracted to her dark and dirty side. Relationship moves fast, she drunkenly says I love you multiple times but then forgets it happened at the two week mark. I meet her entire family, we argued over some trivial things, she also lived 80 minutes from my 'home', she broke it off after a pitiful six weeks. I make new guy friends and the next months go well. However, depression kicks in full drive, I can't focus, function, I just want sleep, or constant sleep? I order a bunch of oxy and heroin and this is attempt four (shan't speak of #three as it was really dumb). I nodded out and awake god knows how many hours later which is really confusing and at the time more depressing. I can't even off myself, how depressing is that! I was out for a very long period of time and developed a blood clot or some issue requiring ultrasounds and blood thinners on my leg. The next two months were painful. Goodbye Tech: last October I just couldn't handle the stress, anxiety, guilt of underperforming, so on and so forth. So I yolo resigned and went travelling. I went through Japan and I went to one of my best friends who lives in Washington, US. I had an incredible time, my friend in US understands me on all levels but our time came to and end. I'm back home, the past three months have been spent laying in my bed, in my room, abusing myself with zero ambition to even search for a job whilst burning through my savings. These four walls will be the death of me. I'm in therapy once a week (by choice this time) and I self medicate because I'm not only an armchair psychologist, but also an armchair pharmacist. There are many stories omitted from this quasi autobiography but consider it 8 easy steps to fuk your life. There's a scene in Fight Club where the plane Edward Norton is on takes off too sharply and collides with another plane and the passengers either get obliterated on impact or sucked into the void. I travel. When I do I play that scene in my head and cross my fingers. Death by a carriers negligence? Sympathy flows, you're almost a martyr somehow. Suicide - you're considered selfish. Thanks society. Written on mobile so apologies for format, please let me know if this should be posted to other subs that maybe more relevant. I'm not expecting the answer or boat loads of support - I just wanted to vent. Tl;dr: I have no real family, I have friends but I'm too introverted and depressed to do anything with them or join them for events. Every relationship implodes for a variety of reasons. I'm. So. Fucking. Lonely. Help. Me.

Everyone focuses on botnets because it has been so long since regular users were able to effectively mine a coin (due to every coin rapidly going high end GPU and ASIC) that the idea that "users" could vastly outnumber "miners" (botnet or otherwise) isn't even on the radar. The vision here is a wallet that asks you when you want to install: "Do you want to devote some of you CPU power to help secure the network. You will be eligible to receive free coins as a reward (recommended) [check box]." Get millions of users doing that and it will drive down the value of mining to where neither botnets nor professional/industrial miners will bother, and Satoshi's original vision of a true p2p currency will be realized.

Other coins do use the word anonymous improperly, so we too have to play the marketing game. Most users will not bother looking at details to see which actually has more privacy; they'll assume anonymity > privacy. In a world with finite population, there's no such thing as anonymity. You're always "1 of N" possible participants. Zero knowledge gives N -> everyone using the currency, ring signatures give N -> your choice, and CoinJoin gives N -> people who happen to be spending around the same amount of money as you at around the same time. This is actually the critical weakness of CoinJoin: the anonymity set is small and it's fairly susceptible to blockchain analysis. Its main advantage is that you can stick to Bitcoin without hard forking. Another calculated marketing decision: I made most of the OP about ring signatures. In reality, stealth addressing (i.e. one-time public keys) already provides you with 90% of the privacy you need. Ring signatures are more of a trump card that cannot be broken. But Bitcoin already has manual stealth addressing so the distinguishing technological factor in CryptoNote is the use of ring signatures. This is why I think having a coin based on CoinJoin is silly: Bitcoin already has some privacy if you care enough. A separate currency needs to go way beyond mediocre privacy improvements and provide true indistinguishably. This is true thanks to ring signatures: you can never break the 1/N probability of guessing correctly. There's no additional circumstantial evidence like with CoinJoin (save for IP addresses, but that's a problem independent of cryptocurrencies)."

4th June: Claymore's open source GPU miner.
10th June: Monero's "10,000 bitcoin pizza" (2500 XMR paintig). Deterministic seed-based wallets (recover wallet with a 24 word seed)
March 2015 – tail emission added to code
March 2016 – monero hard forks to 2 min block and doubles block reward
There basically two things in here that can be used to attack Monero:
Crippled miner Gave unfair advantage to those brave enough to risk money and time to optimize and mine Monero.
Fast curve emission non-bitcoin-like curve as initially advertised and as it was widely accepted as suitable
Though we have to say two things to support current Monero community and devs:
The crippled miner was coded either by Bytecoin or CryptoNote, and 100% solved within a month by Monero community
The fast curve emission was a TFT miscalculation. He forgot to consider that as he was halving the block target he was unintentionally doubling the emission rate.

Hashflare Cloud Miner Goes Under, Over a Million Customers Affected

They are saying: “BTC mining continues being unprofitable, in gentle of which we want to inform you that on 18.07.2018 we have been compelled to begin disabling SHA and right now, on 20.07.2018, cease the mining service of lively SHA-256 contracts.” Suspicions run excessive that is an exit rip-off of kinds, particularly contemplating their close to month lengthy silence.

Cloud mining is an easy way to get involved in cryptocurrency mining without doing the hard work or purchasing the hardware. However, choosing the right cloud mining platform might be tricky. You need to consider a lot of things to make sure you get the best deal. If not, you’ll end up losing rather than gaining. What You Should Consider When Choosing a Contract
Consider the Proof of Mining
There are scammers out there who provide the service for a while to make you feel they are legitimate and then suddenly cut you off. This is why it is important that you pick a cloud mining platform that has a track record of providing these services. Also, ask the contractors to give you a Skype tour of their facilities for peace of mind.
Consider the Profitability
The truth is that many contracts are not profitable if you consider the present market rates. To find out if the contract will be profitable, find out how many days it will take the contractors to pay back the money you’ve invested. You can do this by summing up daily returns on the present hash rate of the contract and subtracting the fee. This should give you an idea of how much profit you’ll make from paying for the cloud mining service.
Consider the Reviews
Reviews are important variables to consider when picking a cloud mining contract. Search the internet rigorously for reviews about the service provider.
Consider the Mining Contract
Read and understand the mining contracts before you agree to it. Some contractors terminate the contract when the miming isn’t profitable. There are many clauses attached to mining contracts, and it’s important that you read and understand them before you proceed. It’s easy to get ripped off on the internet. So, before you take the risk, you should be certain that you’re not handing your money to a scammer. Start bitcoin mining
Josh Garza here to set the record straight for /r/Bitcoin and the community
Dear /Bitcoin and to our many satisfied Customers reading this, and other onlookers who have most likely been deceived at this point with the negative portrayal of what GAW Miners and PayCoin are all about, both of which are truly revolutionary concepts (I will address that later). It has come to our attention recently that a lot of wild accusations have been flowing, threats, lies and downright deception especially influencing my (PayCoin and PayBase) appearance at the upcoming Bitcoin Miami North American Conference. I have been in direct contact with Moe and he has expressed some concern about my (PayBase) appearance and speaking. First of all, let me address the issues of GAW/PayCoin being a "scam" or "fraud." I will include some user reviews from a few of our unsatisfied customers that we have "Scammed." Review: New user, first post here. Boxes have started arriving in the mail, and I just wanted to give some major kudos to GAW and Josh in particular. We took a gamble on you for this pre-order business but I'm starting to breathe much easier now. GAW has delivered on absolutely everything they've promised, and much, much more. - store credit to compensate for Gridseed price drop - next day, free shipping on product launch - non-stop engagement on this forum by Josh, keeping us informed and answering questions and concerns - excellent response to customer service inquiries - free zenminer controllers Oh. My. GAW. Seriously. I just keep getting more than I ever expected. And I'm sure I'm missing some. This level of customer service (especially in this particular business) is unprecedented, and I have to believe that this product launch is a loss-leader when everything is tallied. BUT... GAW has made a loyal customer here, and probably many more. Whatever the mining future holds, I can't wait to see GAW play a major role in it. Keep up the great work. Review: I just got the unexpected Zen Controller / Raspberry Pi gift from GAWminers. Thank you so much! I've never received a outright gift like that from a company before. And I got tracking for my Week 1 Fury - maybe slightly behind schedule but the free upgrade to DHL courier more than makes up for that. It will get here days sooner than regular post. Thanks for everything GawMiners! Review: My Black Widows are running for a few hours now, the mentioned 18mhs seems about right. Variance is quite high but in the long run it's arund 18mhs. So getting 18mhs for an advertised 13mhs machine is quite outstanding if you ask me! Cheers and thanks GAW-team Review: I have a Fury hosted and can report of the same hashrate, very happy, too :-) Review: My miners have been up and running for a few hours now so I thought I'd report the hash rates I'm seeing. Black Widows - portal and poolside, 18MH/s! Fury - portal, 1MH/s, poolside, 1.6-1.8MH/s! Review: Wow, I am beyond happy. GAW delivered early and the miners are producing way over advertised hash rate. What more could you ask for? Awesome. Cool Only down side is instead of taking those $750 used G-blades of your hands I'm gonna have to buy another Black Widow now. Cheesy Review: Another happy GAW customer here. I've ordered (and received) 2 Gridseeds from them in the past and just completed an order for a Fury. Very happy with the service (Amanda was great!) and looking forward to getting the Fury and included Zen Controller! Review: Received 2 days ago, super easy setup and running at 1.3-1.8 mhs. Great customer service and Zencontroller is amazing. Waiitng to see those week one prices again. Keeep up the good work gawminer Review: 1 week Fury. Im very happy with this product. Nice hash 1.3-1.4 MH/S in my pool. Working good with free ZenControler. What else? Review: Received my ZenMiner 1 day before receiving my Fury , Web page is easy to access , nothing hard to config , ZENOS as been updated now we can see accepted shares etc.. much better now , and will probably be much more better in a few days Review: I bought a Black Widow from GAW after my Cyclone from Zeus. My Black Widow shipped AFTER my Cyclone, and my Black Widow is hashing away at 14MH/s while my Cyclone sits in a Chinese warehouse being probed. I'm definitely unhappy with my Zeus purchase and wish I had put that money towards a bigger box from GAW instead. GAW seems to be the perfect company to buy hardware from at this moment. Where zeus was first in the spot of: best hardware company, now GAW does. They offer free shipping (or for 25 bucks express shipping), and are a lot cheaper than Zeusminer. And oh they even give a refund... I think about 80% of the people would actually cancel their order if it would be possible, and go to GAW miners. But maybe I have an image of GAWminers which isn't realistic I'd go with GAW again in a heartbeat, they even take cc's which makes this easier. Still think we are a fraudulent company ripping people off? GAW has reinvented the mining industry and its been an amazing ride and we are so thankful to everyone in the community that has supported us. GAWMiners and zenCloud lets you generate an ROI faster and more reliably by giving you instant access to your hardware, allowing you to start mining the same-day you purchase, maximize uptimes, and eliminate the shipping and power costs. ZenCloud hosted is the most profitable and more convenient way to run your miner, period. We have continued to improve all of our products and increase hashing power while lowering costs at a rate unprecedented in the industry. Anyways, let me move on to PayCoin and I could not be more excited by the feedback we have been receiving so far. A lot of people are bringing up the $20 floor for PayCoin or other promises we have claimed to have made. We did not backpedal on this issue, there was never a time that we meant that everyone in existence could cash out instantly and we would support that. We have some very large investors and capital supporting us (I am however not allowed to give specifics on this) who are backing the $20 price, however obviously this doesn't apply to everyone. The same thing would happen for Bitcoin or other cryptos, for example the price of Bitcoin now is around $315, however if every bitcoin owner in existence went to exchanges and tried to sell the price obviously would crash very hard down to $0 very quickly. So PayCoin and Bitcoin are extremely similar in this manner. However, we are committed to the $20 price, even if it may not be that way right now. As a help if people could buy or trade bitcoins for XPY this would certainly help that happen quicker, if anyone here is thinking of doing so all I can say is it would be an extremely sound and fruitful investment (lots of cheap coins available currently). $20 is more of a target we are going to enforce rather than a floor which I don't believe I have ever said. Moving on to the Amazon and PayCoin integration issues. With PayBase Express we are working on the goal to shop with Paycoin on the Amazon, Target, Walmart, Macy*s and Best Buy’s online stores. This is something you can't do currently with Bitcoin or other crypto's, so I think this is one of the main points of why there has been so much negativity in the past several days from other camps, in a few words its jealousy but I am not going to play the pretend psychologist here. Due to legal reasons, I am not able to say when/if this will happen exactly since we are working with other large investors and partners who will be handling the interface and a large part of the legal/technical aspects of this and NDA's, however it is our dream and goal to build the world’s most advanced online payment system in world - Paybase. We hope to be ready to unveil the results of those efforts very soon! Lets say it will work like PayPal but the PayPal overseers don’t get their cut or say-so. Since the merchant pays less to process your order, it will cost you less, and so we pass those savings back to you. Let me reiterate the once in a lifetime opportunity people have now to get in the ground floor of cheap coins which I absolutely hope will revolutionize currency and the internet as we see it today very soon (not to mention make the early investors very very rich!) :) On this note, I am discussing with Moe to possibly make a separate, private consulting seminar at BTC Miami after the Q&A session (which due to my schedule I may or not be able to make). It would be a private meeting type scenario after-hours from the conference with a select group of people willing to pay the fee to really get an inside edge of the crypto industry and a pilots seat to the future by having a direct private meeting with me and speaking with me. Price for this would probably be between $1-2000 per head however its just a preliminary idea I have been shooting around and it isn't set in stone yet. To sign up for this please PM me or message me on my Twitter twitter.com/gawceo (more details to come). So, now that I believe I have set the record straight on all these accusations, I would really like to express my frustration with all these claims of "Fraud" and "scamming" that have been popping up lately. (Please, if you have been banned from our forums take that as a message that you are not welcome back in the future). These Reddit people are extremely hostile and confused individuals, mostly spreading lies and deception out of jealousy or fear (I don't know). I am personally investigating and directing my legal team to investigate and take full legal action against on this Reddit of users who posts or comment lies or deceptions, and possibly even Reddit.com for facilitating this. Let this serve as a warning for other people who may want to speak negatively about my companies, PayCoin, GAW, PayBase and my person Josh Garza, we are investigating full legal action against Reddit.com website and users who have posted negatively. In short, don't piss me off or you will regret it, please delete your lies and posts if you want to save face and avoid full legal action which I am pressing for now against everybody. XPY and PayCoin are probably the best opportunity you may see in your lifetime to get in on the ground floor on a platform and currency that will transform the internet. The price right now is the biggest bargain around and Paycoin will be the most successful coin launch in history and moving forward, think of Bitcoin on steroids pre-bubble, and we aren't stopping until its Moon. Anyone on Reddit.com or reading this can buy Paycoins here on the main website. See you in Miami! Sincerely, Josh Garza GAW CEO
