Plotting as a service - paas

hey fellow chiaites! (too soon?)

I just finished plotting every ounce of disk space I have approx ~50TB and now my Chia budget is exhausted. I built two sick Chia plotting rigs in the process and can do ~7TB / day. I know some dudes in AUS are offering send a drive and have it plotted for $20/TB, I’m open for biz and I’m in Texas if that interests you. I can buy the drive, you can amazon me the drive, whatever floats your boat. but right now my plotters are sitting bored. So if you want to get a jump on transactions being enabled and exchange listing week 1 of May. I CAN HELP. if you wanna negotiate in BTC, I would also be amenable to a discount. Happy plotting!

It’s obviously chia pets :smile: , plotting as a service is a good game to play. Do you have evidence of plotting speed?

Evidence?? The Chia CLI doesn’t keep historical performance logs. It only provides performance logging on a per plot basis. I’m actually being conservative in my capacity because I want to be able to provide a 16TB drive filled with plots in 4 days. I have 4 total systems I could dedicate to the task if need be. Also for full transparency, a drive labeled 16TB will provide ~14.55 TiB and 146 total plots at (102GiB per plot). If you want to send me a drive, I would also be amenable to 50% payment up front, 50% on delivery.

I’d be interested in plotting on s3 or it’s equivalent. If at all possible.

Is it possible to plot on behalf without having the private key of the user?

edit: I didn’t think you could plot without the private key… guess i was wrong.

@dchuk maybe this should be in the buy/sell/trade/service category?

Yeah agreed. I’ll set that up right now and move this thread and that one where I shared the drive deal at Costco into it. Thanks for the heads up!

Yes, absolutely! I don’t require your private key just your public framer and pool key.

This is totally false: Farming on many machines · Chia-Network/chia-blockchain Wiki · GitHub

Farming is not plotting tho?

second bullet point:

When creating plots on the other harvesters, use chia plots create -f farmer_key -p pool_key, inserting the farmer and pool keys from your main machine. Alternatively, you could copy your private keys over by using chia keys add, but this is less secure. After creating a plot, run chia plots check to ensure everything is working correctly.

you should NEVER NEVER NEVER give out your private key to anyone for any reason. Just recite the idiom “whoever holds the keys, holds the keys to the kingdom”

:point_up_2: yes! There are special OTHER keys you can provide if you want someone to farm on your behalf – farmer_key and pool_key as stated earlier!

This allows for someone to use the last two keys @codinghorror just pasted here for example, to plot on his behalf. You don’t have to share private keys to create plots for someone.


Also, I mangled those keys so they aren’t valid just in case :wink:

Aw, dang - I was going to send you a couple thank you plots uuencoded in 300 emails.
