Bitcoin Mining Group in Thunder Bay
A small group of friends recently got into mining & trading cryptocurrencies (primarily bitcoin, but we've also been looking at other coins) and we're looking to see if there is any interest locally outside of our small group for information, assistance or just general discussion.
We've got a facebook group page (
) where we are listing our various mining equipment, yields, experiences, cost expenditures using Thunder Bay Hydro, etc...
I'm already running a couple of ASICs and looking at some larger ones, and happy to share my experiences.

[comments] I'd like to start a bitcoin mining group. What are the major obstacles I'll face?
I've found some useful guides about the technical side and am looking forward to further research. Ahead of this research, I'm really interested in lessons learned from anyone who has tried and failed (or been successful) at starting a bitcoin mining group. Just some key concepts to watch out for based on actual experience would help guide my R&D effort. submitted by
I have some basic fundamental questions: 1) can a bitcoin mining group charge a proft? 2) Does the mining group website need to be ultra-powerful or does the heavy lifting get done by the users? 3) Do I need to collect sensitive user information and process 1099s to the miners or does bitcoin inherently protect that information and distribute the wealth such that a mining group is a more simple "sign up" process with each individual obtaining the income directly? EDIT: I'm under the impression that a "pool" is a group of miners formed to increase their hash power. I'd like to create one, perhaps using p2pool, for bitcoin miners to join by permission. I'd be managing my miner's hardware and account set-ups, because they know even less about this stuff than I do. Specifically, I want to set up a rule that allows me to automatically transfer 20% of any bitcoin mined by the pool to my wallet and divide the remainder based on proportionately contributed hash power. I realize gaining users would be very hard to do, especially as this is a very high commission. But assuming I had the users, if each user has 14 Th/s power... how many users would I need in my pool to be competitive in the competition? communityDOTsolar to Bitcoin [link]

Came here to say that $MARA (marathon patent group) will rocket. They are #1 biggest US crypto mining co. They are also a venture capital & private equity firm as subsidiaries. The QUANTITATIVE EASING will devalue the USD$ and thus all these bankers are looking else where to part their money before devalue hits. BTC is the future.
Furthermore, Fed. Res. Is trying to make all USD digital so that they can better control your life. In August, they partnered up with MIT attempting to create digital currency infrastructure. BTC is the future.

The firm Digital Currency Group (DCG) is entering the mining industry, as the firm has pledged $100 million into a cryptocurrency mining firm called Foundry. The mining company Foundry was noiselessly founded in 2019 and it aims to offer capital, consulting, and intelligence to digital assets miners. Bitcoin mining is becoming a massive industry and the competition continues to heat up across the world.

[comments] Digital Currency Group sets up bitcoin mining subsidiary, commits $100M in funding through next year
Crypto venture capital firm Digital Currency Group (DCG) has entered into crypto mining space. submitted by
The group has formed a wholly-owned subsidiary called Foundry which provides mining and staking, equipment financing and procurement, and consulting and advisory services. DCG said it has committed to invest more than $100 million into Foundry through 2021. Foundry is based in Rochester, New York and supports mining operations in North America. “We are a business built by miners for miners, and we are partnering with entrepreneurs who share our mission of advancing the industry and creating a decentralized mining ecosystem,” said Mike Colyer, a former Core Scientific executive and now CEO of Foundry. Foundry was quietly formed in 2019 and is working with both Bitmain and MicroBT. “Through Foundry’s work and financial support of our end customers, we have been able to ship a significant number of machines into the US this year,” said Su Ke, global sales and marketing director of Antminer at Bitmain. With Foundry, DCG now operates four subsidiaries, including Grayscale Investments, Genesis and CoinDesk. bitdex to BitcoinMining [link]

infocryptocoins to CertificadoDigital [link] [comments] Long live decentralized bitcoin(!) A reading list
Newbs might not know this, but bitcoin recently came out of an intense internal drama. Between July 2015 and August 2017 bitcoin was attacked by external forces who were hoping to destroy the very properties that made bitcoin valuable in the first place. This culminated in the creation of segwit and the UASF (user activated soft fork) movement. The UASF was successful, segwit was added to bitcoin and with that the anti-decentralization side left bitcoin altogether and created their own altcoin called bcash. Bitcoin's price was $2500, soon after segwit was activated the price doubled to $5000 and continued rising until a top of $20000 before correcting to where we are today.
During this drama, I took time away from writing open source code to help educate and argue on reddit, twitter and other social media. I came up with a reading list for quickly copypasting things. It may be interesting today for newbs or anyone who wants a history lesson on what exactly happened during those two years when bitcoin's very existence as a decentralized low-trust currency was questioned. Now the fight has essentially been won, I try not to comment on reddit that much anymore. There's nothing left to do except wait for Lightning and similar tech to become mature (or better yet,
help code it and test it
In this thread you can learn about block sizes, latency, decentralization, segwit, ASICBOOST, lightning network and all the other issues that were debated endlessly for over two years. So when someone tries to get you to invest in bcash, remind them of the time they supported Bitcoin Unlimited.

Peter Todd: How a floating blocksize limit inevitably leads towards centralization [Feb 2013]
with discussion on reddit in Aug 2015
Nick Szabo's blog post on what makes bitcoin so special
There is academic research showing that even small (2MB) increases to the blocksize results in drastic node dropoff counts due to the non-linear increase of RAM needed.
Reddit summary of above link. In this table, you can see it estimates a 40% drop immediately in node count with a 2MB upgrade and a 50% over 6 months. At 4mb, it becomes 75% immediately and 80% over 6 months. At 8, it becomes 90% and 95%.
