Service Offering: Bitcoin Mining Setup and Support


What's bitcoin? Bitcoin is a world-wide borderless currency for payment transactions:
  1. the highest value-add for Bitcoin: low to zero Bitcoin processing fees. Bitcoin allows you to store money in a digital or paper wallet at virtually no cost when compared yearly 200$CA Canadian Bank fees. Merchants use Bitcoin system at ZERO cost when receiving revenue. Consumers paying for lunch as an example pay a 0.0001 BTC fee to miners who process the transaction. Bitcoin is more efficient than banks when you compare banks charge the merchant 3% processing fee without mentioning the credit card interest/service fees. Bitcoin helps you to avoid paying for embedded bank/credit card fees like: rent, staff, account fees, wire transfer costs, cheque costs, merchant fees, ATM fees, Overdraft fees. Bitcoin removes the middlemen and make transactions more efficient. Bitcoin is less expensive to use than legacy currencies once introduced within the bitcoin system. Bitcoin usage is disrupting the necessity for banks, insurers, credit cards, payment systems and exchanges. The interim bad news is when moving outside the Bitcoin system, bank-like levels of exchange fees are involved when converting from Bitcoin to legacy currencies and vice-versa but this interim pain will go away as Bitcoin becomes mainstream as the most popular currency for all the right reasons. Over 100,000 merchants now accept bitcoin including Modern Automotive Performance, Dish Network, TigerDirect and NewEgg.
  2. The other high value-add for Bitcoin: government obstruction-proof. If the internet is considered a nation in itself, then it could be fitting to say that bitcoin would be the internet's best form of national currency because governments around the world have less instruments to control bitcoin than legacy mediums of currency. This makes bitcoin highly valuable for doing business when governments unjustifiably try to obstruct normal business transactions. Bitcoin transactions are extremely difficult to obstruct in any country. This value-add more than compensates for the bank-like levels of exchange fees involved when converting from Bitcoin to legacy currencies and vice-versa.
  3. Because bitcoin is open-source software, anyone can contribute to how it works which will spur even more bitcoin innovation disrupting current industry titans even further.

  1. 10,000USD value for bitcoin
  2. 50,000USD value for bitcoin

Emailed Firefly a few questions and here are their answers: "Mr. Huang Qiyong is VP of the company. We have years of development experience with Rockchip Soc, dating from the ancient MP3 era. The Firefly development board is powerful. Click here for the Firefly-RK3288 Spec. The price tag of our Firefly-RK3288 development board is USD 129 (without shipping). The performance is good. We have good service support and quick response. Our product has undertaken long time test. It is our first step into the open source world. We have passion and energy. Our team has full support from company and Rockchip (We have good relation with RK, and is one of the best design houses.) This is our first step into open source world. We are still learning. We're open ears to your suggestions." Why did you decide to support Lubuntu with LXDE Desktop instead of GNOME/KDE? Does LXDE support the most popular applications that most users would want? Libreoffice, evince(pdf reader), thunderbird, firefox? "The firmware file size is the main consideration. We try hard to cut down the desktop to under 1 GiB for easy distribution. The office apps can be easily installed by apt-get, and they run fine." Will you provide a repository for ubuntu packages built specifically for your device? "We can if it is necessary. Currently, we just use the Ubuntu official repository." I noticed there is no SATA interface to your dev board out-of-the-box. Are there plans to facilitate a rapid communication with a regular hard-drive? Does the USB 3.0 interface provide equivalent performance to SATA for using it as the main storage and operating system device? "RK3288 does not have SATA interface, nor the USB 3.0 interface. We suggest that using nfs (Network File System) or samba, sshfs, etc to mount the storage over the ethernet (Yes, the board has giga ethernet), which will save the budget and keep data safe." I would have honestly preferred GNOME Desktop because I really don't want to adjust to other applications. "In LXDE, the applications written with GTK or QT run equally fine. We'll have a demo of Gnome desktop once it is worked out."
If you buy this board, you will need some kind of storage drive on your local internet. I have no hesitation recommending this board considering their open-source position and prompt response to my emails. Their web site is clear and has documentation for installing GNU/Linux from downloadable images from their website.

Travelling to Northern China? Checkout Changchun Landmarks


Four-day Tour in Changchun(长春) and Xianghai(xiànghǎiguójiāzìránbǎohùqū向海国家自然保护区)) is an understatement as to what wonderful experiences you can have in the Changchun region: Northeast Errenzhuan东北二人转, Jingyuetan National Forest Park (jìngyuètánguójiāsēnlíngōngyuán净月潭国家森林公园), Chagan Lake(Chágànhú查干湖/Shèngshuǐhú聖水湖), Miaoyin Temple, ChangBai Mountain(Chǎngbáishān长白山) and Heaven Lake(Tiānhú天湖). The food there is amazing. You can find restaurants serving memorable, fantastic foods from North Korea(Xin North Korea Cold Noodle Restaurant), Sìchuān四川(Laomashou Ganmian老妈手擀面), Germany(Golden Hands金汉斯(红旗街店)), Japan(Yoshinoya), and Huízú回族. These hotels prepare wonderful foods also: Redbuds Hotel, Chang Bai Shan Hotel, Shangri-La Hotel. Lots of ginseng that you buy in Canada comes from Changbaishan which isn't far from Changchun. Jilin Province is the largest producer of ginseng, producing 85 percent of the country's total and over 70 percent of the world's total amount. Shy Grass, Mushroom Wine, Chuan Popo Spicy Sichuan Sauce and other marvellous wonders can also be found at the Changchun Agricultural Fair. The best cartoon I have ever seen is 中華一番之滿漢傳奇(Zhōnghuá yī fān zhī mǎn hàn chuánqí) Cooking Master Boy 中華一番!(Chūka Ichiban!).
