Andreas M. Antonopoulos educates Senate of Canada about Bitcoin (Oct 8, ENG)

October 8th 2014, Committee on Banking, Trade and Commerce
“Study on the use of digital currency”, 11th session

Background on the “Study on the use of digital currency”:

In Canada, the public debate surrounding Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies is currently being formalized as the official “Study on the use of digital currency”, a consultative exercise conducted at the initiative of the Senate of Canada’s Banking, Trade and Commerce committee.

Although the Senate of Canada exerts less authority than the House of Commons, its standing committees have proven to be an influential source of expertise and opinion. It also enjoys considerable international attention: according to Stuart Hoegner, general counsel at the Bitcoin Alliance, “no other parliamentary body in the world has publicly canvassed the breadth of materials and opinion that this committee has”.

KnCMiner Neptune unboxing and installing

Keep in mind that the cubes were places like this for filming purpose. Don’t let a cube blow the heat into another’s intake 😛

Running at stock volt and speed for now.
Cgminer still shows lots of errors but a new firmware will fix this (hopefully)
The noise level is acceptable, still lower than 1 BFL Single lol.
My PCI-E cables are a bit warm, but not burning hot.
The included cables are a bit short imo.
​The packaging was surprising good (can’t see any physical damage).

3rd August UPDATE:
After over a month of hashing stable at 3.3Th/s with 1.6% error. I’ll now try the newest firmware 1.0.2
