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 use 6-pin-to-sata riser I bought from Amazon. I just connect one riser per sata rail from the PSU and it's been my setup for 6 weeks now. My rig is 6x Rx580 dual-mining eth+sia.

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?
Use quadrigacx.com.
Create an account, undergo the verification methods and you're gold. You'd have to fund your account first with ETH or BTC then you can exchange them into fiat currency i.e. Canadian dollars.

if you're looking for short term profits sure...
...Mine $8 of SIGT and exchange for $8 of Eth or mine $4 of Eth every 24 hours. Why would you not choose the former? It doesn't matter if it's short or long term because if you wanted to hold Eth in the long term, you'd still choose the former option.

You need to find someone who wants to buy it off you basically, this can be pretty risky. Something like https://localbitcoins.com

Otherwise I think you can connect your bank account to certain exchanges and withdraw like that, but there is typically a fee not sure if it's worth it for small amounts.

I haven't personally done either.

Was away camping for the long weekend. Looks like Supernova has started charging 1% pool fee. Also is the Supernova dashboard working for your guys?

I noticed the 1% too and was going to comment on it. The dashboard is hit and miss.

Too late now though lol. Didn't realize the sheer amount of hash power shifted over to SIGT as we've just surpassed the 30K mark (which was expected to be tomorrow) where rewards are halved. I guess it's more Equihash for now.

So I've followed SickBeast's post a few pages back to mine skunk/SIGT (thanks a lot BTW) and it's been working great so far - getting ~35-38 MH/s on a GTX 1080.

I've been spoiled with NiceHash and and mined towards my coinsquare and quadrigacx BTC address for easy transfer to CAD.

I've set up the local Signatum wallet as well, but once paid out, how will I transfer that to CAD/USD? I don't think those exchanges accept SIGT/skunk at the moment?

Thanks for the help guys!

You would exchange SIGT to BTC to cash out. You're better off mining ZCash now with your GTX 1080 though since SIGT is expected to net you only $2/day instead of $3/day.

So Signatum has passed block 30,000, reward has now been split to 1250 SGIT per a block.

As of 7 PM EST, value has decreased to about 0.00003100 BTC which is $0.106 cents USD, from a brief high of about 0.00004800 yesterday.

I've mined about 80 SGIT in total since August 5th at different times, bought another 140 SGIT with some scraps I had. Probably going to hold it for now, not sure if will mine for a while as mining has been unpredictable went from 1.5 per hour to 0.5

How much is everyone else in, did anyone sell off?

Looks like exchange SIGT to BTC on www.cryptopia.co.nz, then transfer BTC to quadrigacx or kraken and sell to CAD from there.

I managed to mine and buy around 32,000 Sigt, half of that is kept for a long term and 16k is in Cryptopia for a 'sell high, buy low' accumulation, the coin is expected to hit at least $1.

I'm starting to wonder if there was a RFD effect on the sigt coins. The difficulty has gone up like crazy, it's becoming very hard to mine the coins. The value of the coins has also dipped. I am hoping that they hit $1.
