Thanks for the warm welcome. I’ve starting mining but I don’t have a powerful GPU so my hash rate is really low. I’m getting 20kHash with my GT630.
Mhm, it helps. For as long as you mine coins you also identify and confirm blocks and transactions.
Correct me if I’m wrong but mining isn’t just about collecting coins, but also about moving transactions along faster? So every bit helps?

Damn, 1000 FTC in a couple of hours… I joined too late, not even hit 100 FTC in like 2 weeks now >w<
Anywhom. welcome to the forums and you bring quite an interesting topic with you
Thanks for the welcome. Interesting topic? Wonder what that could be. Sci-Fi or horror? Early adopters luck? Or could it be possibly porn
Sci-fi and horror are the interesting part to me, besides it doesn’t scare me too much. The porn, ehhh… No need for it for me

I’ve been reading a lot about virtual currencies lately, and decided to get in on the action. There’s so many now, I couldn’t decide which one to try until I started reading these forums. Everyone here seems friendly and helpful, and it’s nice to see a good community being formed.
From what I’ve read, a lot of folks are not mining FTC at the moment because of difficulty re-targeting (which honestly, I don’t quite understand yet. I’m still learning.), but I expect to be here for the long haul if the community stays as warm and helpful as I’ve seen so far.
I look forward to conversing with you all in the future.
Great to have you here. We will make it through this last stretch of re-targeting as a community
I can’t see it being a ‘last’ stretch unfortunately, but if we all ‘pool’ together and keep at it we’ll establish and stabilize the currency over time.(Bad pun intended :P)
That aside, welcome to the Feathercoin.com forums Antedeus. ^^
Hi and welcome to the forums cryptocat, unless justabitoftime or someone else gets into contact with the domain provider(s) I doubt anyone can do anything.
(Please go to your thread in the General Category to continue)
Thanks guys for the warm welcome.
Currently I have about 2.8-3.0 mhash/s available to mine, I’ll probably have two 7950’s thrown at FTC for the next month or so, roughly 1250 khash/s I’m getting from the two.
I don’t know what is in store for this currency in the future, I hope the price does not hit rock bottom when the difficulty changes probably next month. If the difficulty becomes something like ~25, then a crapload of miners will suddenly have thousands of coins…
Or maybe, the blocks will be solved to quickly for some people to have time to jump in. Who knows. :p
I bought a bunch of coins (960 coins) at .00306 BTC with all of my previously mined LTC, so I’m hoping that some day we will see a rise in value.
Enough of my tangents, time to mine

Well for me it was hard to figure out why i cannot post. I think new members should get some notification.
And will I allways have to complete captcha to post?
No, not always. The captcha (and obligatory first post in the Newbie forum) is to keep out bots / spam bots IMHO.
Edit: I’m sure the captcha disappears after 10 or so posts.

Hello, I think http://ftc.mining-foreman.org is from Europe? Am I wrong?
Mhmm, the server/computer is located in mid France! Just over the English Channel from me
[url=http://feathercoin.is-a-geek.com]http://feathercoin.is-a-geek.com[/url] is based in France, though it is right on the backbone to get good latency to the US.
Sadly you can’t run your GPUs through the likes of an RPi, if you could I’d of been doing it since day one.
You’re in the same situation as me it seems, except I can only run for 5-6 hours a day.
There’s been a lot of talk of the windforce 7950s being the favourite card to pick ,due to thier cooling abilities but aslong as you have good case airflow you could get something like :
XFX Double D Radeon HD 7950 3GB GDDR5 Graphics Card [FX-795A-TDJC] + 4 FREE GAMES!
Â£225, sell the games code for around Â£30-50, makes them Â£195-175 ea.
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7950 Boost Edition 3GB GDDR5 Graphics Card [21196-00] + 4 FREE GAMES!
Â£226, sell the games code for around Â£30-50, makes them Â£196-176 ea.
Otherwise, take to eBay. None display cards (faulty) sell for Â£100-120 a pop. Could drop lucky and be perfect as a headless mining card. And used/working cards sell around Â£180 - 220,
If you’re not to confident you can run your cards cool with the stock coolers then opt for the Gigabyte windforce.
(Note, my 24/7 rig will soon have the 7970s + 6 x 120CFM fans in a regular ATX case and that should be sufficient enough for me to run them cool and 24/7)
Edit: From experience, the XFX DD (I have 7970s so slightly more heat) stay around 86C with the fans @90% and ambient approaching 32C where the current rig is and has been running awhile.
They are running inside this rig with 2x 120CFM Scythe Jyuni fans pointed at them at present:

Heya SpyTec and welcome to the forums (finally) xP
If you have any questions you know where to find me

How much KH/s are you getting with your nvidea card?
Posted in another thread but I get around 90 KHash/s stable without doing anything else on desktop. But since the NVIDIA card is in the main PC I currently have it running at 61KHash/s.
It’s been driving 2 monitors on 90KHash/s, only problem was that it lagged the PC down when any form of flash or video appeared. Might try to get it headless if I buy a new GPU and then try to see what kind of hashrates I can get.
Welcome to Feathercoin.com forums in_bits, does this mean you’ll be helping with the difficulty (i.e. mining FTC irrespective of the current difficulty :P).
Or are you just going to keep your FTC and wander off somewhere else x3
