My husband is into bitcoins, has been since the very start. He obviously loves math problems. He's watched sites like this arrive with fanfare and then disappear for one reason or another. I on the other hand find the bitcoin world obtuse and confusing. It appears to be deliberately resource-intensive and difficult. I would prefer to spend my time online shopping and finding unusual, unique pieces of jewelry. At the moment I am looking for statement rings online. I don't want traditional statement rings that glitter with with diamonds and precious stones. I want a chic sleek looking design that has a more sophisticated feel. A conversational piece that makes a statement. My favorite, reasonably priced jewelry store is called Siamm Patra where all the jewelry is designed by the owner. I like her quirky design sensibility. I just bought three of her chain link accent band statement rings in silver made from high polish finished brass plated in Rhodium. There is both an intricacy and sleekness to the ring's design. I've never seen a ring like this. So my husband can go mining all he likes for bitcoins and all. I will go mining for unique pieces of jewelry instead.

NEWLY DISCOVERED SHELLSHOCK BUG COULD LEAVE YOUR BITCOINS VULNERABLE

SEPTEMBER 25, 2014 BY ROCKSTAR

Earlier this year, a security issue known as Heartbleed was discovered which affected a wide range of different online platforms based on OpenSSL, including Bitcoin.

Though the issue had existed for some time, it was only discovered then. And to the credit of Bitcoin Core’s development team, they came up with a patch for it quickly, releasing Bitcoin Core 0.9.1 to remove that security risk.

But now, a new security risk looms on the horizon, and it could be a much bigger threat than Heartbleed.

FTC Complaint Against Butterfly Labs

SEPTEMBER 23, 2014 BY ROCKSTAR

At the request of the Federal Trade Commission, a federal court has shut down Butterfly Labs, a Missouri-based company that allegedly deceptively marketed specialized computers designed to produce Bitcoins, a payment system sometimes referred to as “virtual currency.”

The FTC’s complaint against the company and its corporate officers alleges that Butterfly Labs charged consumers thousands of dollars for its Bitcoin computers, but then failed to provide the computers until they were practically useless, or in many cases, did not provide the computers at all.

A company representative said that the passage of time rendered some of their machines as effective as a “room heater.” The FTC charged that this cost the consumers potentially large sums of money, on top of the amount they had paid to purchase the computers, due to the nature of how Bitcoins are made available to the public.

Liberté Mining Brings Hydropowered Cloud Mining Assets Online

SEPTEMBER 9, 2014 BY ROCKSTAR

Chain Radio News Report – Produced by Chain Radio News Team

Liberté Mining has announced the launch of a new cloud mining service powered entirely by 100% renewable hydropower built on the Counterparty protocol. The Canadian company is operated by a team of experienced miners who use the P2Pool mining network to help mitigate the chance of a 51% attack on the Bitcoin network. Now, they are bringing the ability for anyone to purchase cloud mining assets via Counterparty’s truly decentralized and transparent system.

By issuing assets via the Counterparty protocol, they allow those assets to be traded freely on Couterparty’s real time decentralized exchange.

The cloud mining service assets can be traded, but unlike competing services it is done instantly via a decentralized exchange that is operated by the Counterparty network itself. The unique nature of this resource makes it unlike any other available at this time.

Liberté Mining stands to become the industry leader in “green” mining. While competitors have touted operations that are clean and energy efficient, Liberté Mining is the first operation to use 100% hydropower. Their data center is powered using nearly all completely renewable, emission free, clean energy sources for the mining operations.

“A leading mining pool consumed 159,519,788KW/H of power in the first year of operations. Imagine if that power had been clean, renewable energy such as that being used by Liberté Mining. Hydropower offers the distinct advantage that it emits no greenhouse gases. We use fully renewable water instead of limited fossil fuels which allows for lower energy costs for the Liberté Mining operation.”

-Ryan Scott, CEO, Liberté Mining

Liberté Mining is one of the most transparent mining pools in existence. The use of Counterparty shows all of the assets sold and traded allowing anyone to verify operator integrity. With P2Pool showing the mining operation statistics and the clearly published contact information, purchasers can be confident in their investment.

“Mining operations will commence in October 2014 in a fully transparent and decentralized manner, utilizing all of the technology at our disposal. We intend on showing the community that we are operating a trustworthy operation that is worthy of bringing trust back into the cloud mining community”

-Ryan Scott, CEO, Liberté Mining

Ryan and his partners, Leo and Nick, are all well-known and respected bitcoin community members. As active and lifetime members of the Bitcoin Foundation and Bitcoin Alliance of Canada, the team share their passion for giving back to the community in many ways. All three are also involved in facilitating local bitcoin meetups. Leo and Nick also operate their own bitcoin ATM companies known as BitSent and BitTeller. Ryan also operates an online jewellery company called Crypto Jeweler.

The company announced today they would be planting a tree for every asset sold to help offset the carbon emissions generated through other mining operations.

Liberté Mining has tapped upon the vast resources of The Carbon Farmer to help them with the tree planting in Canada to help offset the emissions. The Carbon Farmer is a unique organization planting trees on behalf of individuals, organizations, and businesses looking to help fight carbon emissions around the world.

Liberté Mining does all mining in a fee free P2Pool which also results in higher profits for the holders of the Liberté Mining assets.

Liberté Mining is one of the more compelling concepts to enter the cloud mining space to date with such a strong focus on transparent, decentralized, and energy conscious efforts. Mining assets are limited so be sure to invest early!

PRESS RELEASE

Chain Radio Coming Back from DDOS

BY  ON SEPTEMBER 21, 2014 - UPDATED ON SEPTEMBER 21ST, 2014 NEWS

Chain Radio which has suffered from a major DDOS attack that has brought the online streaming service dedicated to cryptocurrency offline seems to be making a come back tomorrow morning we’ve learned from a blog post on the Chain Radio site.

Rockstar one of the two station managers wrote:

Starting tomorrow, Monday, September 22nd we should be fully back online at 10am Eastern and it is our hope that we have overcome these attacks.

He further went in to the details as to why the streaming service can not simply place streaming servers behind a CloudFlare protection as many other sites have been.

Unlike many other sites in the world of Bitcoin land we are operating a fleet of streaming servers which can not be simply placed behind the protection of CloudFlare. When someone is attacking our servers we are in a constant state of battle blocking IP ranges, blocking specific IPs and trying to keep everything online.

The site which operates at a loss has taken a major beating over the past several weeks from others who have performed massive DDOS attacks against a range of cryptocurrency sites.

 

Jump ahead several years and this site's domain registration expired. The new owner of the site decided to rebuild the site using content from its 2014 archived pages and other outside sources as a tribute to the hard work and dedication of the original owners. It's the wild frontier out there!
