Those of you who are running S9 space heaters… how have you typically configured your set-up? Temp ranges, fan settings, auto tuning? Braiins auto tuning seems to work really well, but needs to run for a few hours for each power setting. Makes it difficult to test a bunch. #homemining

Whoever is running the mint. My basic understanding is that the mint is effectively running a custodial lightning node with a cashu mint on top. The bitcoin funds sit in a lightning wallet and cashu tokens are generated and regenerated as they are used or redeemed. If a token is redeemed at a second mint, the second mint effectively requests a lightning payment from the first to redeem the tokens. It’s like a lightning wallet that functions as a bank issuing redeemable, private IOUs

Got it! Do you know if anyone is working on a zap equivalent for nuts? I remember seeing encrypted DMs being used, but it would be interesting to have a nut button on each post for feeless tipping!

So the payment is made to a lightning invoice via a cashu wallet? The person receiving is still just a lightning invoice yeah?

Equipment arrived in great shape and works perfectly. Thank you npub1q4zl8v0 ! So far I have replaced the PSU fan and tinkered with braiins. Next steps: after a lot of research (mostly digesting others experiences and work) I opted to go for the 2x 140 mm noctua fan set-up over the more intense AC Infinity Cloudline S6. This was solely because of cost trade-offs and the fact that the S9 will be underclocked and not delivering much bitcoin anyway. I still need to explore adapter options for attaching these fans to the miner - there are some nice 3D models out there, but I don’t have a printer and shipping from a retailer makes these options more expensive. If I ever do this with a more modern miner it would be a very different decision and an interesting path with equipment like the njord board by Pivotal Pleb Tech that opens the door to better cooling at a higher cost.

Future space heater has arrived to earn me pennies! Will probably write a nostr long-form for beginners with everything I’ve learned. Lots of information out there about the process but it’s very scattered.

The concept I am more interested here is that your additive mining pushes other miners out on the margin. Less about the actual energy source, but I think the two sort of go together especially in regards to waste energy. There is going to some amount of energy (determined by reward size and price) that will go to bitcoin. Also green energy is going to create periods of significant waste energy or variable costs. Overall we have so much of this “waste” energy that it should eventually drive margins toward 0, which pushes the higher margin miners out. Ergo, waste mining replaces mining with electricity that has value to people for other uses.

Does syncing volume and laser intensity make it more or less scary? Hard to imagine a more terrifying nostrich. Halloween in 12 days… 😶
