Protoshares Cloud Mining
« on: November 15, 2013, 10:36:31 PM »

Since its currently profitable to cloud mine with Protoshares I'm talking with a cloud provider to make this easier. They have authorized me to give everyone a $200 credit to their account. I'll try to work on another guide this weekend. I'm seeing if we can also get the basic mining software preinstalled. Payment with Bitcoin is on the table, but that is going to take some luck and talking to.

I'm just curious to how many people would be willing to sign up? Also how much would you be willing to spend on cloud mining if they offered US dollars vs Bitcoins?

I would also be interested in this service, kind of tough to find at the moment.

I'd be interested - testing against other cloud providers.

Why are you interested in cloud miners if you're so against botnets?  Aren't cloud miners functionally doing the same thing as a botnet would to individual profits?
Before you say the price of PTS is too high, take a look at theThe Reason.  Protoshares are an entirely new type of Cryptocurrency, one that pays to hold.

I'm interested. I can do either BTC or dollars, but I'd expect to see a lower cost for BTC given the obvious reasons (no chargebacks, future value, etc).

Maybe he's one of those people who see things in black and white. Like, "stealing is wrong", even if it's just cents worth of electricity.

Thanks for the responses guys. Not sure yet, which is why I will try to run some benchmarks tomorrow, and give you guys some actual numbers to work with.

definitely interested. Running one myself at the moment thought it is still in testing stages and the overhead is more than return. lol...

Well botnets involve taking control of someone else's computer without there permission. Not really the same as cloud computing.
