Raspberry Pi Solar Mobile Mining Rig Backpack

Raspberry Pi Solar Mobile Mining Rig

Bitcoin is open source and globally accessible. It gives people the ability to send remittances. Operate e-commerce. Manage offshore deposit. It brings international banking to the 5 billion users of mobile phones. Microloans in crowdfunding and micropayments in paywalls. The system is still very underdeveloped. Bitcoin or digital currency will become a platform for transport of stock, bonds, derivatives. Peer-2-peer real estate such as Airbnb and peer-2-peer transportation such as uber will all accept and rather prefer bitcoin. It is a new paradigm for finance. I am awarding bitcoin miners free wifi at aggregated hotspots.

Steps in the right direction:

Strongcoin-escrow

Zerocoin- real anoynimity.

Bitpay-POS

All Increase of these companies increase adoption. Higher adoption, more usage, higher value. Game changing value.

SMEs will offer discount for payments in bitcoin.

And now the real value. Traveling the world by financing my travel while traveling. How? With a solar backpack powering a raspberry pi mining rig. In this sense, the future of this technology makes location completely unimportant. Reverse diaspora.

Bluetooth 4.0 = internet of things, gms chips will be everything, and people better realize you can 3d print car keys.

Energy in a three prong moving machine with led lights for solar lighting. Resonances creates friction, heat, energy. Methane+Oxygen, Ionic Wind a lot of synergies for creating sustainable energy.

Now it is all about low activity, high return. Solving big enterprise problems. b2b > b2c. Just about always.  Find the problem, then the market, then build the product. Solve, vertically. A has my product “x”. B, C, fyi If you don’t buy my product “x”, you will be left behind. codecademy to start, then move into bootstrap. BLE+foursquare+QR+Digital Currency= disruption.

Its about numbers. every move. every number.

Solar backpack will consist of

a raspberry pi

asic miners

solar powered backpack

powered usb hub

wifi adapter

The rig will be completely off the grid and basically a traveling residual generator for contributing to the bitcoin network. Not too costly to build either. Will be prototyping for the next month. It should work and when it does, despite all criticism on the ROI of mining, it will definitely by worth it.

Kali Linux + Wireless Security

Raspberry Pi Impact on Hacking + Kali Linux OS

The Raspberry Pi is a 35 dollar ARM computer that uses Linux Operating System, the Model B 512 MB RAM with 2 USB ports, video out, and HDMI OS onto a SD card Up to 64 G of memory; in theory behind a cheap, inexpensive computer, “burner computer” cheap, disposable, anonymity. It is small size allows it to be easily hidden attack from within rather than forcing your way through a network. With a Raspberry Pi you can:

  • Sniff networks for information and passwords
  • See all internal network traffic
  • Try to shut down the network from within

This computer is a small inexpensive device can be used as a cheap cluster for computing power. Useful in some context, mining, computing. It gives you the ability to gain a large amount of power at low cost. What you can do:

  • Route all the traffic through the Pi
  • MITM attacks
  • All traffic routed through the rasp pi
  • Packet sniff inside a network
  • VLAN Hopping
  • VoIP sniffing
  • VoIP recording and play them back at a later point in time

Man in the Middle Attacks

  • Ability is built into Ettercap
  • DHCP spoofing
  • Arp Poisoning

All traffic is going to be routed through your raspberry pi then you can modify traffic as it runs through your raspberry pi. You can change the traffic, see the original and when it sends it back out it will still form a valid packet but you can still change what it means.

DDos attacks

definitely can affect bitcoin sprices because people cannot gain access to their wallets and therefore sentiment is fearful, sell, price drops, people initiated buy.
crash services and those that flood services.

VLAN Hopping

You can check to see if there are other parts of the network, and listen on their traffic too.

VoiP Hopper listens for any traffic that signifies other VoIP devices

Use a SIP crack, crack passwords of VVoIP device, works similar to aircrack.

VoIP attacks

VoIPong allows user to sniff calls on any network, will record and output to .wav file for listening later

Hardwire Access + Surge protector + Raspberry Pi = Network Observation Device

Run the cord into the Pi. Use if for the manufacturer’s intended purpose, Surge Protector Pi

For a small cost, you can set your Pi up inside a surge protector, constant source of power, inconspicuous, hardwired Ethernet connectivity.

How to defend against this threat:

  • Physical security
  • Monitor network traffic
  • Specifically search for traces of network sniffers
  • Like in a wireshark log

How to defend against the defenders:

  • Spoof MAC address, and change it periodically if you are within a network
  • Hide the device well,
  • Don’t be afraid to lost the device

Obtain a Raspberry Pi, PwnPi.net.Know your toolkit on Kali Linux. All on command line.

Programmable Currency

Third Party software applications that drive global user adoption are essential to the future of bitcoin.

Applications that remove friction in financial transactions at the enterprise level is where the true intrinsic value in bitcoin is. Bitcoin is often looked at as an anonymous, volatile, investment vehicle for speculators when in fact it is THE first of its kind programmable currency.

It is open source, Peer-2-Peer, it is global.

It is truly remarkable when you think about the scalability and its potential to disrupt financial technology across a number of verticals.

It provides people with a security from bail in’s as seen by Cyprus and Poland. It provides people with an reduced barrier to exit from financial restrictions and gives them the freedom to opt-out and reinvest in a protocol backed by mathematics.

With bitcoin location is completely irrelevant, that is the real definition of mobile.

Bitcoin is intellectually property for those who understand it. If you can memorize your wallet address it’s now an irrevocable asset.

Bitcoin is not about speculation. It is about the promise of technology and the effect it will have on those who wish to embrace and build. Bitcoin is the forefront of the new tools in the digital world and how they drastically can change the analog world.

Bitcoin will do to banking, what email did to the postal industry and what Netflix did to Blockbuster.

Everything in code going opensource. Git, Firebase.

Everything is management is going to be automated.

Higher Education can now be accessed via IP with Khan Academy, Udacity, Coursera.

Society adopts technology that creates situations of low activity and high return.

Search and solve big enterprise problems and build the solutions in the context of a digital future.

Bitcoin Hits 400 USD, Correction 500… 600 really?

Over the last two weeks there has been an incredible surge in the price of bitcoin. The higher the price of bitcoin goes, the higher the price of the miners go. There has been a 300% increase in the price of ASIC USB Miners in the last week. Just started mining, the higher the price of BTC the more I get paid out on mining shares.

How to setup a Bitcoin Miner

Raspberry Pi + Raspian on SD Card + WiFi + cgminer + powered hubs + ASIC Miners + (SOLAR ENERGY)

First things first you are going to need to buy the essentials to make a raspberry pi computer. This is a ARM computer board that operates on Linux. The following is hardware you will need to Mine Bitcoins.

Raspberry Pi

Targus USB Port  * USB 3.0 Hubs are not compatible with the Raspberry Pi

SD Card + Raspian OS

Wireless Keyboard + Mouse

ASIC Miners

WiFi Nano Adapter

Bluetooth Adapter

Setting up your Raspberry Pi is not to difficult. First you need to download Raspbian the OS of Rasp Pi to your SD Card. This can be done using win32diskimager. Insert the SD card into your PC and write the image to the SD card.

Next plug in your keyboard and mouse(wireless), your SD card with the OS downloaded to it, your HDMI cord from the raspberry pi to your TV, and finally plug in the micro USB powercord.

You will then need to set up your Edimax EW-7811Un WiFi by using the instructions here.

After your WiFi is set up you are ready to set up your miner.

Plug in your USB powered hub into the Rasp Pi and the wall.

You know will need to do a few things: Download cgminer, buy ASIC Block Erupters, and join a mining pool.

As for the mining pool I recommend Slush’s pool.

You just have to setup an account by email.

Next, download the latest version of cgminer.

After you have downloaded cgminer and configured it to your mining pool, plug in your Block Erupters into your powered USB hub. You should see the idle green led lights go off which means they are now mining bitcoins.

I want to make my mining rig solar powered.

I want to make:

a dollar in a week.

100 dollars in a month.

1000 dollars in 100 days.
