  1. Generally it isn't the mining program itself which busts the PC, but damage to hardware is more common with these programs because a lot of the people using them don't have adequate cooling. Even though CPU mining isn't anywhere near as power-intensive as GPU or ASIC mining, it's still a performance heavy task, and when the poor little $5 laptop fans can't keep up and the CPU cooks itself, people tend to blame the program itself. They normally aren't profitable either, unless you have access to solar power (fortunately I do), or have some beast of a CPU like the Ryzen Threadripper.
  2. Where's the proof of payment? Most scam sites/add-ons have some kind of satoshi ticker, proof of payment is an actual withdrawal with screenshots of matching withdrawals/deposits on each respective page. Considering Chrome says the add-on can: - Read and change all your data on the websites that you visit - Display notifications - Communicate with cooperating websites - Manage your apps, extensions, and themes, This add-on sounds extremely dodgy to me. Wouldn't go near it. Not to mention, the add-on offers up to 10 levels of referral networking, with each user getting paid for all their referrals and sub-referrals down to 10 levels. No way in hell this kind of payment scheme is sustainable.
  3. I've tried it before and the worst I've had was 5 reds in a row. Was unlikely, but bound to happen at some point considering the number of rolls needed to turn a noticeable profit. Had 3 reds on the first 3 rolls before too, so I'm not playing with that "strategy" anymore.

    Far from an easy choice, you can see him running every single possible outcome through his head and the stress from not knowing which one it will be. Would have been far more stressful though if he'd folded and saw the victory slip through his fingers, so good on him for taking the leap and coming out on top.
  5. @1claire I was only talking about doubling every 24 days in terms of the calculations, not actual bets. But you are correct that the compounding interest on daily 1.03x bets would result in higher gains compared to exactly doubling every 24 days. That explanation was just to show that daily 1.03x and 24 day doubling are roughly equivalent in terms of gains, and to show to steven that the gains you mentioned for 468 days are in fact correct.
  6. After one day you multiply 100 sats by 1.03, which gives 103. After the second day you multiply 103 by 1.03, which gives you 106.09, day 3, 109.2727, etc etc. It's not much by itself, but done 468 times, it does reach 100,000,000. Another way of doing it is by saying that roughly every 24 days, you'll double your money (since 1.03^24 is about 2). 468/24 is 19.5, so after 468 days your amount will be 100 x 2^19.5, which equals 0.74 BTC (the lesser amount comes from the rounding down in 1.03^24).
  7. While discipline does help in controlling yourself and taking profits before they can turn into losses, the odds still don't change, no matter how long of a time span you spread it out across. You still need to multiply your initial 100 sats by 1,000,000x, and one of those daily 1.03x is almost guaranteed to fail eventually. Otherwise it would be no different to gaining 1.03x every minute, and turning 100 sats into 1 BTC in just under 8 hours. Starting with a higher bankroll, say, 0.05 BTC does help reduce the chance of going bust, but it still requires 102 gains of 1.03x each, which is still unlikely.
  8. SaySo Rewards is a pretty decent site, I access it through Wannads on bonusbitcoin.co and their highest paying offer gives 8,000 satoshi for each survey completed (payout varies depending on BTC/USD value). CrowdFlower is also pretty good, rewards for completing tasks rather than surveys and the payout varies depending on the type of task. None of them are really quick ways to huge amounts, but if you put a bit of effort in you can easily earn 0.01BTC per week. You'll need a Coinpot account, since bonusbitcoin pays directly to that site.
  9. Increasing the faucet for players who have been playing a long time might be viable, but increasing it based on wagering amounts still leaves room for faucet abuse. A player could sign up, make a large deposit, go to sleep while running 1.01x dicebot and wake up to a boosted faucet, then withdraw whatever's left. It could also possibly become unfair for some players, since a new player who rolls 1 or 2 BTC at a time would quickly get a larger faucet payout than a veteran player who regularly plays with 100K-200K.
  10. The forums itself works as a faucet, only instead of solving captchas you get involved in discussions. With the highest post/day cap of 50, and an average of 500 satoshi per post, you could (theoretically) make around 25K satoshis per day (possibly more if you make your own topics), which is far better than any faucet currently out there. But at the end of the day, PD is a gambling site, not a faucet. People can use the faucet to test out different strategies (I imagine there's some sites which don't even offer that), but if they're after larger amounts to play with then they make a deposit. If the faucet payout is a make or break deal for someone, then it's likely that they don't ever intend on playing with their own crypto, and are just looking for a quick, free way to possibly make some.
