恆春計畫定期報告 - 第 168 日









如果你還不清楚什麼是恆春計畫,整個恆春計畫其實就是在 Swiss Gold Global 上購買 Zcash 兩年期挖礦合約,並設定收益自動轉換為 BTC,期滿後預期挖到的 BTC 總數量會比當初投入購買算力的 BTC 數量多,好過於當初直接囤幣,這樣,這個計畫就算是成功了。

這個定期報告的背後,其實就是有個「恆春計畫執行成果」試算表,我也開放給各位隨時可以去查看參考,至於如果想要一整串完整的照順序查看恆春計畫的定期報告,可以點選這個「恆春計畫」標籤連結去查看。

平台幣 KuCoin 宣布變更鼓勵金發放方式




KuCoin 在昨天傍晚發布這個消息,KCS 的價格立刻向上飆漲到最高漲幅曾經有到 23%,現在雖然稍微有下來了一些些,不過相對於整體幣圈的死氣沉沉,這個表現確實是令人刮目相看。

過去 KuCoin 的鼓勵金是以原始 (原形) 的方式發放,我這邊之所以用原始來形容,是因為它跟客戶收了各式幣種的手續費,它在每日結算之後,就切一半 (50%) 然後依比例發給了我們這些 KCS 持有人,所以我們這些 KCS 持有人收到的鼓勵金,其實是包含了形形色色的各式幣種,但是數量都很小。

這種收什麼就發什麼的方式,是我最稱許讚揚的方式,原因不難理解,就是個透明可被計算。事實上,當初我在評估要不要放棄 KCS 改投資 OKB 時,在心理糾結著的,甚至在最後毅然決定還是留守 KCS 的關鍵考量,就是這個點,這個大部分人不在意的點。




大部分投資人跟我想的是相反的。這個早在四天前 KuCoin 在做上面這個問卷時就看得出來了。我是選擇維持現狀,但大部分人都覺得每天收到那麼多零碎的散幣 (dust) 很煩,所以都選擇 KCS,覺得這樣比較單純好管理。

我之所以看似自找麻煩的選擇領散幣,其實是著眼於期望 KuCoin 永續經營下去的角度。我覺得交易所專心做好交易平台就好,不應該搞太多財務操作的事。每天多一道手續,將這些散幣轉換成 KCS 再發下來,是極其複雜的工程,弄不好還會有弊端產生,最後你都不知道這 KCS 是怎麼來的。雖然 KuCoin 在公告裡有說了:
KuCoin 将平台每日交易手续费总额的 50% 用于从二级市场上直接购买 KCS,并每日以新版 KuCoin 鼓励金的形式发放给用户。 
是從二級市場買回來的,不是像 FCoin 的 FT 是新發行出來的,但是你就是很難去驗證,那又何必給交易所這樣的取巧空間呢?所以我投票給維持現狀,不過看來已經是大勢底定,我也就只好從善如流了。今後也就只能時時刻刻睜大雙眼一直盯著瞧仔細了。




這個公告還發布的特別急急如律令,幾個小時後就依新規則開始發放 KCS 了,好快。你看上圖,我持有的 3,564 個 KCS,當晚就配到了價值 1.71 美金的 0.54992111 個 KCS。稍稍算一下,日報酬率是 0.015%,年報酬率就是 5.63%,然後最妙的是,隨著交易所每天交易量的增加,這個報酬率還會持續往上揚,看來還不錯哦。

HashFlare 終於來到了第 21 天零收益的景況



參考上圖,根據 HashFlare 的服務條款第 5.5 條所述,扣除掉每日維運費後,如果連續 21 天都無法獲利的話,整個挖礦服務將永久中止,也就是說合約就失效作廢了。

又因為每單位算力的挖礦能力及維運費都是固定的,大家都是一樣的,所以,不管你買了多少算力,也不管你是何時買的,即使你上個月才買,一旦開始倒數計時這 21 天,每個人的時間表都是一樣的。只要時間一到,整個 HashFlare 的 SHA-256 挖礦程序就是永遠停止了。

而這一天,竟然就是在今天到來,2018-07-10!我曾經天真的認為,HashFlare 不會放任這種事情就這麼輕易發生,畢竟服務關閉了,空出來那麼多礦機雖然它可以自己繼續挖礦獲利,但是有了這種不良紀錄後,等於日後即使情況好轉,又再恢復開賣 SHA-256 合約,完全就不會有人敢買了吧。所以,前一陣子,我還天真的以為 HashFlare 會稍微的降低它的維運費來跟大家一起共體時艱一下。





看來是我自作多情了。第一次起算 21 天時,持續了 13 天沒收益之後,竟然在 2018-06-19 這一天有了些許收益,然後隔天又開始沒有收益了。也就是說,在 2018-06-20 這一天,又重新起算 21 天了。而今天,2018-07-10,正是第 21 天!然後 HashFlare 在這段期間竟然完全沒有動靜,不聞不問的 ...

我想,該是到了要來總結這份合約的時候了。那麼,就首先來算算,上圖中的四次取款,就是我在合約期間僅有的四次提款,讓我總共領回了多少比特幣?也就是 0.01426813 + 0.01606783 + 0.01680375 + 0.03715743 = 0.08429714 BTC。若是再加上現在還躺在 HashFlare 帳戶裡的餘額 0.00777044 BTC,到時候我總共是可以領回 0.08429714 + 0.00777044 = 0.09206758 BTC。






得出這整份合約最後我可以領回 0.09206758 BTC 這個數字後,接下來就回過頭來看看當初我是投入了多少呢?如上圖所示,我當初是刷信用卡買了 3.4 TH/s 的算力,花了 408 美元,而這 408 美元如果用當時的幣價來換算,是等於 0.09881760 BTC ...

也就是說,當初這 408 美元,如果我直接拿去買比特幣囤起來,現在我手上依舊會持有 0.09881760 BTC 不會減損。無奈我是拿去買了 HashFlare,弄得現在只能拿回 0.09206758 BTC。虧損了 0.00675002 BTC,換算成百分比是虧損了 6.83%,有點傷心了。

所幸,雖然在加密貨幣的觀點裡我是虧損了,但是在法幣世界的觀點來看,現在的這 0.09206758 BTC 用時價換算成美金大概是值 608 美元,遠高於當初投入的 408 美元,不到一年的投資報酬率竟高達 49%。這樣想,就比較欣慰釋懷了。

以上,就是我的 HashFlare 合約總結。但我不會因此直接做成「買雲礦不如囤幣」的結論。因為我知道,依我的個性,這筆錢若不是先交到 HashFlare 那邊再慢慢還回來,我可能早就不知道在哪裡賠光了。也因為這樣能從 HashFlare 拿錢回來實在是很不容易,才讓我更珍惜這筆錢而守住了這筆錢。這樣想了一輪,我就又勝利了,呵呵呵。


恆春計畫定期報告 - 第 161 日

Hashing24 推出超俱吸引力的 SHA-256 永久算力合約



根據今天在 CryptoCompare 上的試算結果,每一 GH/s 算力可以每天挖出價值 0.0003099 美元的比特幣。這也是為甚麼 HashFlare 的算力合約已經第 16 天沒有收益了,因為 HashFlare 的維運費要 0.00035 美元,每天挖到的比特幣在折算成美金之後,都不夠付每天的維運費。再 5 天沒改善,這份合約就要自動終止了。

Genesis 的狀況就好一點,因為它的維運費只收 0.00028 美元,所以目前為止每天都還維持著極小金額的收益。即使未來每天得礦的狀況真的惡化到低於 0.00028 美元維運費,根據合約條款,也還要持續 60 天沒改善才會合約終止。所以我其實還蠻看好這份合約的,尤其它還是份永久合約,只要沒解約,就能一直賺下去。

Genesis 後來又推出了新式的五年期合約,條件比舊式的好很多,唯一的缺點就是只能挖五年。你現在再去買的話,就都是這種新合約了,舊合約已經不再賣了。不過不建議現在就去買,新合約雖然去掉了 60 天沒收益就解約這條條款,但是現在就買的話,可能會在每日收益都很低的情況下度過五年,所以應該是要等每日收益開始大幅提升之後再進場。




然後,就要來介紹 Hashing24 昨天推出的這款新合約了。這份合約的重點在,它的每日維運費是 0.00017 美元,相對來講是更容易存活下來,但是要特別注意的是,跟 HashFlare 及 Genesis 非常不同的是,萬一,一旦開始付不出維運費時,你就必須決定是要終止合約或是從之前累積下來的餘額裡拿錢出來補每天不足的差額,這個我在「雲礦的這一天終於來了 (三) 」裡面有描述到。所以,如果情況真的非常惡劣,你是有機會被倒扣到血本無歸的,這個風險你必須要有體認。

除此之外,我覺得這個合約還比 Genesis 的新合約更有利,尤其是它每 TH/s 只賣 120 美元,真的是便宜啊。

以利坊 (Electroneum:ETN) 緊急要將演算法改回 CryptoNight



Shit Happens !

是沒有很驚嚇啦,只是些許的無奈。猶記得一個月前我還在期待「準備迎接以利坊 (Electroneum:ETN) 硬分叉後的全新局面到來」,沒想到這陣子 ETN 不但沒漲,反而還跌得比整體幣圈平均還兇,然後昨晚就看到這樣的消息。ETN 要在區塊高度 324,500 時,再度進行硬分叉,將演算法從 CryptoNightV7 改回去變成原來的 CryptoNight。而且很急,大概明天晚上就改了。

理由是因為換演算法以來的這一個月,願意持續參與 ETN 挖礦的顯卡礦工數量太少,絕大多數礦工都是唯利是圖的看到利潤才來挖,難度太高了就跑了,尤其是現在有 NiceHash 這種平台要調度算力實在是太容易了,導致全網算力呈現非常不穩定的波浪狀,妳看下面的難度表就知道了,是不是有種桂林山水甲天下的感覺呢?




要換回就換回吧,隨妳了。我這邊呢,基於 ETN 的手機挖礦是免本穩賺的生意這樣的理由,還是堅決繼續這麼挖下去,而且也會繼續推廣下去,畢竟不會有甚麼損失。萬一賭對了,未來 ETN 大漲上去,那就開心了。

以下,是 ETN 公告的原文,給大家參考。


Hi Everyone!

ALL ELECTRONEUM NODE OWNERS MUST UPDATE THEIR SOFTWARE BY BLOCK 324500 (approx. 36 hours from now – this is an URGENT UPDATE – PLEASE SHARE THIS INFORMATION)

  • We have an urgent software update below for anyone who runs a full Electroneum Node. If you don’t know what a node is – don’t worry! You won’t need to do anything.
  • We also have a VERY exciting update about an upcoming listing on a top 10 exchange.
  • How will I mine Electroneum after this update?
  • Instant Payment vendor API is open for BETA applicants.
  • How can ETN change the world?
Please note that nothing in this message refers to MOBILE MINING – we are referring to the underlying blockchain miners.

Urgent Electroneum Node / RPC / Command Line Wallet Update

ALL ELECTRONEUM NODE OWNERS MUST UPDATE THEIR SOFTWARE BY BLOCK 324500 (approx. 36 hours from now – this is an URGENT UPDATE – PLEASE SHARE THIS INFORMATION)

https://github.com/electroneum/electroneum/releases/tag/v2.1.0.0

It’s only been a few short days since I made a video and said “our fork went well! We’re ready for 20m Users!”.

The fork was a great success, from a technical standpoint. Unfortunately, we never got back the number of GPU miners that are needed to ensure our network runs smoothly and has stable block emission. A new phenomenon has emerged where a number of users are mining Electroneum in waves. They come on and then leave after a few hours in a coordinated manner to mine ETN in a completely selfish way. We can’t blame  people for  maximizing their profit, but we have not built up the amount of “hashing power” that is required to make this impossible and create the stability we need in the network.

This has left us at risk. As such, we have to take urgent action to stabilise our network and protect the Electroneum community.

Coinbene Listing Electroneum & our network stability

We have formally agreed and signed contracts to be listed in July on the AWESOME, top 10, cryptocurrency exchange https://Coinbene.com & https://Coinbene.com.br

Coinbene have 1.5m active users and are a GREAT fit for Electroneum. Their primary markets are Latin America and Asia – which fits perfectly with Electroneum’s customer base. They have seen enormous growth over the last few months and have been very positive about the Electroneum Project.

Whilst this is great news, we will need much more hashing power to ensure we have network stability for our listing on this exchange, so we’ve taken the decision that we can’t wait any longer for GPU miners to return to us and we must run an urgent software update to re-introduce ASIC mining to Electroneum.

This is a very positive move for Electroneum. A great deal of Bitcoin’s trust and appeal is from the enormous hashing power and distribution of miners on the network. Bitcoin & LiteCoin have embraced ASICs and we feel that it is the right thing for Electroneum to do the same.

ASICS are becoming more prevalent, they cost considerably less to run than a GPU rig and use a fraction of the electricity. We are going to encourage more ASIC ownership and take our hashing rate up to (and beyond) the enormous levels of hashing power that we had before the May fork.

There is a further development. The first generation of hardware called an FPGA miner is arriving during 2018 and they make ANTI-ASIC capabilities a thing of the past, as they circumvent the slow delivery time of new ASICs by being re-programmable. If we are ready to embrace these rather than fight them, our network hashing power is increased further and our network stability and security is further enhanced.

Because ASICS run cooler, quieter and use a fraction of GPU rig power, they are suitable for MORE people to run in their homes. If you are interested, a search of “Cryptonight ASIC miner” in Google or Ebay will find the equipment needed to mine Electroneum. You will need to be reasonably technical to achieve this!

Having a stable network is absolutely key to both delivering mass adoption and to ensure we have a great relationship with the great exchanges that we’re already listed with, and to encourage more of the larger exchanges to see Electroneum as a coin that they want on board.

How will I mine Electroneum after this update?

If you are a mobile miner – nothing changes. If you are a GPU or ASIC miner then you’ll need to connect to an Electroneum pool but it is important to note that you will need to change your ALGORITHM. You MUST use the algorithm “Cryptonight” and NOT “Electroneum” or “CryptonightV7”. This will ensure your device works after the update. We will communicate this to all pools, but if you are a member of a mining pool – PLEASE LET THE ADMINS KNOW ABOUT THIS CRITICAL UPDATE. They must update their pool node by block 324500, which is only around 36 hours away.

Instant Payment vendor API is open for BETA applicants

Instant Cryptocurrency Payments via smart phone has always been a critical part of what Electroneum required to achieve mass market adoption. It’s never been done, but 9 short months after our ICO we are excited to announce that we have opened to the doors to vendors who would like to accept payment via Electroneum. The application is to be part of the BETA rollout of instant payment, but will operate on the live blockchain with real ETN!

If you run a business or know someone who does – why not recommend they apply to accept ETN. The Press and Marketing opportunities for the first, in any sector, to accept cryptocurrency are huge! Be part of the instant payment API BETA program by completing this form:

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfKTwWT7W4ltmApZOBdTOSccKC2Ff8vxapGZABWd-HrfvLhlg/viewform

How can ETN change the world?

Instant payment does far more than allow people to pay for their coffee with crypto instead of their VISA card.

If you’d like to know more about Electroneum’s future I suggest you read a fantastic article that describes its coming role in the world, by fellow director Chris Gorman OBE (Officer of the British Empire – awarded by the Queen of England!): https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-cryptocurrency-enable-financial-inclusion-chris-gorman-obe-duniv

Electroneum has one of the largest of all cryptocurrency communities and it is made up of passionate and amazing people. With your support and world changing things we have coming out over the next few weeks, we can use this update to make our blockchain foundation secure and lead the world in mobile cryptocurrency.

I'm sure you agree that we've been through some challenging times which our team have always dealt with and learned from. The strength and support from our community and many of our goals becoming a reality combined with this blockchain update will give us the perfect foundation to deliver the Electroneum vision that we all share.


Thanks for taking the time to read this long message.

Have a great day everyone,

潮州計畫定期報告 - 第 110 日



下圖是扣除掉維運費後的每日收益狀況。可以非常容易觀察到的是,在最後的兩個月中,收益劇烈的減少,即將要在接下來的幾天內觸抵到零收益了。




每日收益越來越少,期末報酬率的預測當然也就跟著越來越下修。加油啊,Genesis!這張合約一定要撐下去,撐到柳暗花明,撐到春暖花開啊!這張可是永久合約耶,未來再也買不到了,以後都只賣五年期合約了。




如果你還不清楚這是個甚麼計畫,整個潮州計畫其實就是在 Genesis 上購買 BTC 永久挖礦合約,並設定收益自動轉換為 BTC,期滿後預期挖到的 BTC 總數量會比當初投入購買算力的 BTC 數量多,好過於當初直接囤幣,這樣,這個計畫就算是成功了。

我會在每次收到款項後做出定期報告。這個定期報告的背後,其實就是有個「潮州計畫執行成果」試算表,我也開放給各位隨時可以去查看參考,至於如果想要一整串完整的照順序查看潮州計畫的定期報告,可以點選這個「潮州計畫」標籤連結去查看。
