Bitcoin Halving




As a good chunk of the bitcoin community is very aware, the bitcoin mining reward will be getting halved very soon, and this could mean a few different things

When

About 31 days from now (check http://www.bitcoinblockhalf.com/) the bitcoin mining reward will be halved from 25 to 12.5 bitcoin (this occurs 210,000) for each solved block, this means that the supply will lower significantly for bitcoin world wide.

What does it mean

This means things to different people. For an opportunist, I think quite a few people will buy a few BTC now, and dump after the halving because a lot of people are speculating that the price will rise because of simple supply and demand.

For miners, they will probably be making approximately the same  (in USD or CAD) as they used to, however the actual amount they receive in bitcoin will be half of what they received previously.

If the price remains constant, and does not rise, that could mean the majority of miners shutting down however which could be very bad. This seems to be more of a fringe case though, it's more likely that the price rises and some people can take this opportunity to make a few bucks.

Setting up a self maintaining miner (Windows GPU CPU miner)

Problem I run a 125MH/s ETH GPU mining rig but I was having issues where it would restart intermittently and when it would come back online it would obviously stop mining and i would lose mining time because of it.
Solution
Automatic restart Run your miner automatically on startup This is actually a very simple way to keep your miner in check so you don't encounter much or any down time. As an added bonus, it's very simple to set up.

BTC-Flow

Today I'll be giving a bit of a look into BTC-Flow. It's a game based bitcoin faucet that has me pretty into it. No more of the jumping from site to site clicking your way through pop ups and other fun activities.

The concept of the game is that you run a  company. At first, your company mines bitcoin and has a earning rate of 0.0000015 BTC/Min and your max capacity is 0.000012 BTC. Your part in running this company is getting the bitcoin from your company either before or after your max capacity is hit. You then need to click once your bitcoin capacity is reached to put that balance into your main bank. From here you basically repeat this as much as you'd like. If you really enjoy this, you can "level" your business with bitcoin to increase capacity and earning/min at any point.
