The guys on the bitcoin talk forum are saying that we should see SIGT hit $1 per coin within a couple of weeks. Apparently it will be listed in Bittrex within a week which should skyrocket the price. That would be a very nice windfall for those of us mining this coin. I'm at block 27,530. We'll see how long it takes to get to 30,000. People have speculated that will happen on the 9th.

Im pretty sure its buried in here somewhere in the thread, but how do you guys trade your Cryptocurrencies to PP? Specifically, BTC?

Ive been playing around with mining with my current hardware and i managed to have about $40 CAN in coinbase. I'd appreciated if someone could point me on something they can vouch and currently use to change their BTC coins.

coincards.ca is respectable but currently closed until August 7th, if you have small amounts you can buy a Amazon.ca gift card (there will be some fees however to send ofcourse), lowest amount they sell is $25 CAD. I used them once before, had no issues, I think creator is from BC and there is videos of him doing interviews and such on YouTube, when I did some research before buying a small amount a while back.

I've never owned any significant amounts to warrant using local bitcoins or connecting bank accounts to exchanges, but it's pretty risky in my opinion.

Also don't forget about capital gains and such, especially if you getting a big amount.

Is the sigt_supr nova_cc pool down?
The front end works intermittently (website). Shares are still being accepted and credited with SIGT just fine.

15 cents now.

Another question,

Those PCIE risers (1x to 16x adapter), I noticed a lot of them use SATA+USB in some ways. Here is the one I am looking at:
https://www.amazon.ca/BLOCKSMITH-PCI-E- ... iser&psc=1

For a PCIE card, I believe 75W can be drawn from the slot (at least for 16x). So how is the SATA power able to make up the difference from a 1x slot? I believe a 1x slot can supply 25W. So that is 50W difference, which seems like a lot and I would be concerned about the SATA power cable being able to carry that amount of power without becoming warm (or burning up). A hard drive barely uses 10W, an SSD likely a lot less.

Also is it a good idea to have the slot's 25W being drawn through a USB cable? Are my assumptions in this post incorrect?

I'm switching one of my rigs back to ethereum for now... keeping the other on sig. The easy coins have been mined already... I'm a speculator so I'll hold them.

But wouldn't it still be more profitable mining SIGT and dumping it each day? 2 GTX1070s would still be making $8 or so with SIGT versus hashing Eth yielding ~$4. You could simply buy Eth rather than mining it.

Thanks man. I was able to exchange my BTC to GC.

From what i understand at the moment, there's no way to change BTC to CAN currency? Just exchanges for GC or goods or services?
