  1. Well technical analysis seemingly looks like a downtrend and also this whole Evergrande situation.
  2. It's all just chcmicals in the end... The legit stuff is actually a thing. https://d347awuzx0kdse.cloudfront.net/tbc/product-download/man5697_specsheet.pdf?v=4618d6590cfae873da545e8c2b0d46ab51270fbb If that is exactly the same it is what it can be used for, seems somewhat odd that his miner would be sucking air that needs a strong solvent cleaner like that regularly... but never tried so maybe he knows something we don't. Seems more like a mix of overkill, with laziness, with tightarsed downtime means less profits. I p
  3. Have you got USD/other fiat or a common pair asset like BTC/ETH on kraken ? Easiest is to buy a chunk that will meet minimums and sell the lot, so say buy the minimum 5 ripple, then sell all 8. Keep in mind fees and such, XRP should be low enough that it is worth blobbing that up. Annoyingly there is no function to just sell out dregs.
  4. If Chinese is ok, Hikvision, Dahua, Uniview or Tiandy. Vivotek, and Hanwha are Taiwanese and Korean respectively There are others but these brands tend to have affordable bundle deals with small NVRs
  5. My 1660S get's 29 and a bit MH/s on dagger-hashimoto. You should get a bit higher I would've thought
  6. Use a sensor module with an interface like i2c, SPI etc Such as: https://www.dfrobot.com/product-1827.html
  7. No, you might be able to squeeze a bit more out of your card, but card upgrade or multiple cards is the only real way to get a significant increase in hashrate. Also generally for profitability you also look at power and to a lesser extent thermals. Hypothetically if you get 0.5 MH/s hashrate more OCing but the card uses twice the power it is half as efficient and your electricity costs are eating more into your profits. As for running hotter you run the risk of overheating your system, reducing service life of parts and so on also potentially needing to run house A/C
  8. You're right I suppose I should clarify if you're not holding the eth but transferring through to swap/trade, it can be risky waiting on it if you're not just holding it. Can also run the risk if you're tight that it gets stuck and you need to add more gas. Definitely, tend to use it to move either to the same or different coin across exchanges and it's usually quicker and cheaper especially where I may be shifting small quantities. Long term holding for me but found converting to XLM and getting it out more often for what I want has worked best f
  9. XLM and NANO* have very low consistent transfer fees and are quick, also widely supported so useful for exchange to exchange transfers. I use it with Nicehash as I can transfer small amounts more often and end up DCA and spreading the volatility out and can also buy when low and not stuck waiting to hit a minimum to get it out. One advantage of low fees is that it is a no brainer to do a test transfer. Something like ETH, gas fees vary massively so you ideally time your transaction for a low gas timeframe however for low value transactions the gas fee or exchange fee ea
  10. Can get very cheap USB microscopes, handy enough for close up PCB work.
  11. Also depending on your choices and risk tolerance there are options for your crypto that may work out better than cashing out. Ie. When it's barely profitable in a dip, you may do better accumulating, holding and cashing out at the next high cycle. Thing is that is never guaranteed and you never know which way things are going to go, could be the next crpto winter or new all time highs around the corner. Possibly cash out to break even and dabble with the rest... I personally have been reasonably succesful accumulating and making some smart moves
  12. To add to DDO, you can have coins that are deflationary or there can be mechanisms such as burning or redistributing tokens that can change things. Also with some coins some tokens can be staked or locked up as liquidity, loans and so on or held in cold storage so the actual liquid supply can vary from that issued and the maximum also.
  13. Lol. That's how they cleaned rugs before vacuum cleaners were invented. How do you think they cleaned PSUs before they invented compressed air ? The problem is the mechanical shock and vibration, can cause extra stress in the PCB and solder joins to crack and fail, components possibly to start breaking away and other not good things. Things like conformal coatings, silicone/adhesives on components, epoxy potting or dipping can make a board more resilient to shock and vibration. One of those things, like if you dro
  14. As @Hackentosher has said, it doesn't change the actual power rating of the individual component but you can use several components to make one in a sense. Note that in some cases one option may be better or worse. Like say in your example, rather than 2x10W ceramic resistors a 20-30W heatsink resistor may better dissipate heat and allow for a bit of overhead or you may just be throwing something together quickly and can just use a bunch of resistors to get the right value in a pinch. With parallel be aware that if the values aren't the same the current split will be di
