4  Bitcoin / Project Development / WTB 100 AsicMiner shares at 5 btc each, how many Mastercoin will I need? on: January 06, 2014, 03:20:20 AM
Say I want to place an order for 100 AsicMiner shares at 5btc each, how many Mastercoin will I need?


This hypothetical scenario will require 500 bitcoin and fill multiple asks on the mastercoin exchange

The purpose is that I need a frame of reference for how many Mastercoin I would actually need if I planned to participate in the capital markets

6  Bitcoin / Project Development / For Merchants: Double Spend and Fork insurance on: November 23, 2013, 03:54:03 PM
I've been toying with the idea of double spend and fork insurance

The big fork in march 2013 caused some people to have to disregard transactions

A lot of people don't accept 0 confirmation transactions because they could be reversed

If there were assurances that the merchant or counterparty would be reimbursed if these things happened, then bitcoin would be a more viable means of commerce for more people now. Gambling websites accept 0 confirmation transactions and it is amazingly quick.






Would a monthly premium and deductible model work with bitcoin merchants WHILE keeping transaction fees down from the merchant to the consumer?

I wouldn't want to introduce redundancies that would make bitcoin transactions costly just like credit card transactions, due to merchants paying too high costs for the insurance
7  Bitcoin / Project Development / mastercoin, how will future people get mastercoin? on: November 23, 2013, 02:39:53 PM
Hello, lets say I want to speculate on gold in the blockchain

are you telling me first I would need to buy bitcoin, then buy mastercoin with some of my bitcoin (lowering my bitcoin balance), AND THEN buy an amount of gold with mastercoin, based on my remaining bitcoin

help me understand this, but for the record the way I interpret this seems prohibitive for adoption

9  Economy / Securities / Securities Exchange Commission can exempt anyone and anything from any rule on: October 23, 2013, 01:59:48 AM
There are plenty of USA exemptions for the issuing size of the companies that have attempted to raise capital in cryptocurrencies. Regulation D has plenty of them.

Yes, the general libertarian-anarchocapitalist air of "government bad, regulation bad" has sliced your portfolios by 60% in the past two months, when instead of working with regulations, issuers and exchanges have used more energy trying to avoid the US regulators.

But even with Regulation D, and even unfinalized regulations on crowdfunding ... the SEC can exempt any person (natural or artificial), any security, or any class of security from any section of the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934

I've held that nascent technologies like bitcoin require exemptions to avoid the impossible burdens of raising capital or exchanging value in compliance with securities laws. I think it would be more fruitful for Americans and other traders, issuers and people planning to run exchanges with americans, to put energy into courting the SEC, not necessarily for a broad exemption from certain sections of the Securities Act of 1933 or Securities Exchange Act of 1934, but to make it clear to the SEC what the public interest is and how they can still protect consumers without burdening all bitcoin denominated securities issuers with impossible regulations.

see section 28 of the Securities Act of 1933
http://www.sec.gov/about/laws/sa33.pdf

see section 36 of the Securities Act of 1934
http://www.sec.gov/about/laws/sea34.pdf

despite the commissions incestuous ties with a protectionist financial system, the key parts of their exemptive powers come from realizing the public interest, and how it can continue its goal of "protecting consumers"
10  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / blockchain for contracts, corporate charter, stateless incorporation on: October 23, 2013, 01:20:09 AM
I am interested in researching the idea stateless incorporation using a blockchain.

The idea being that incorporating within a jurisdiction/municipality is a leftover relic from the industrial era. In the United States there is no way to incorporate at the federal, except by an act of congress on a case by case basis, this is not available to citizens. So a citizen is left to choose a state to incorporate in, as if each state were their own country.

Since shareholders can be determined by an address in a blockchain, why not the official formation of a corporate structure, or any limited liability entity? How would this be done? The utility would be for having a separate entity from an individual, in a future where financial liability can be levied upon an entrepreneur. The address or transaction inputs forming the corporation would act to limit liability according to its charter.

So, my understanding is that this only involves the contract feature set of the blockchain, which I do not fully understand even with this article in the bitcoin wiki https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Contracts

Instead, I guess this could be just a corporate charter developed as messages in one address, signed with transactions or PGP keys in the message? I haven't quite ironed this out, and for stakeholders I'm not clear how they could get to be part of this charter from inception. Having held shares of bitcoin companies, I understand that the necessity of detailing who the stakeholders are at inception is largely a moot point, because value from dividends can just be send out to eligible addresses.

Anyway, I hope someone can help me iron this idea out. For raising capital in a cryptocurrency and doing business in cryptocurrencies or simply holding titles, and collecting value from those titles, this structure can be ideal and cheaper than incorporation in any jurisdiction on the planet.
11  Economy / Securities / so... anyone want to make a regulated US stock exchange? on: October 10, 2013, 12:42:37 AM
So, we've all had our fun scoffing at regulators, but now that we've got that out of our system (and our portfolio's are down 60%) are we ready to make a regulated US exchange?

This would have the perks of inviting more liquidity from larger market participants, as well as more stability and predictability.

Playing around with other experiments such as decentralized exchanges and colored coins just invites unpredictable illiquidity and instability.

The Securities and Exchange Commissions offers plenty of regulatory exemptions for the kinds/sizes of companies that have so far "IPO'd" in bitcoin land, the exchanges might have a more uphill battle but its time to cross the bridge
12  Economy / Currency exchange / BUYING RIPPLE(s) 50,000 XRP/BTC on: September 06, 2013, 06:18:36 AM
Okay lets go, make something on those free ripples you got

Buying loads, thats why it is below market.

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [WTB] NEW YORK CITY , buying litecoins with cash on: August 23, 2013, 03:45:16 AM
Looking for trading partners in New York City because I would like to buy litecoins with cash.


and there is nothing as convenient as coinbase level 2, but for litecoins.

it is definitely not convenient to get litecoins when there is a fire sale on an equity at a the litecoin stock exchange
15  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / direct buy litecoin, with cash on: August 22, 2013, 12:10:19 AM
Hello, I enjoy the business management of some companies trading in litecoin and would like to add to my positions sometimes

I find it cumbersome to buy bitcoins and then buy litecoins, as there may be multiple wallets involved and confirmations times vary so much.

Where can I buy litecoins directly?  btc-e doesn't seem to have a viable way to directly deposit USD without 5% surcharge
16  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / large portion of network rejecting transactions? on: August 20, 2013, 03:53:03 PM
Hello

I am having bad luck doing commerce as my transactions randomly take a long time to go through from my local bitcoin client and transactions sometimes rejected, I see some weird anomalies sometimes and of course coinbase always takes forever.

It makes me wonder if a large portion of the new unknown miners are rejecting transactions due to a previously less common implementation of bitcoin and not prioritizing based on the fees


just a heads up and insight appreciated
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / 1+ hr before first confirmation? more problems with multibit on: August 18, 2013, 03:28:22 PM
Hello, I have an unconfirmed transaction that is seen by 1 peer, and it has been almost an hour

I've been having difficulties with multibit sporadically for some time, but I know this one has the automatic fee sent with it too

which was .0001  is the fee supposed to be .0005 ? I don't see a place to set that
18  Economy / Service Discussion / any limits on bitstamp.net? on: August 16, 2013, 05:10:51 AM
Hello guys, are there any arbitrary buying/selling deposit/withdrawal limits on bitstamp.net

I was level 2 or 3 on Mt. Gox and could theoretically move $100,000 usd out of Mt Gox daily


I am level 2 on Coinbase and can buy/sell 50 btc every 24 hours, but this is around $5,000 usd today and pales in comparison to $100,000
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / bitcoin companies, how to deal with USA regulations on: August 14, 2013, 06:11:29 AM
regulations are expensive

securities companies: hiring a compliance officer is expensive

money transmitter fine or subpoena?

20  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / bad signatures, java RandomSecure, malicious on: August 14, 2013, 05:25:04 AM
So everyone is updating their android clients to use the dev/urandom method so that transactions signed are not able to reveal the private keys of both addresses involved.

That is my understanding of the issue.


But what is to prevent someone from simply generating an address using RandomSecure and sending bitcoins to other addresses simply to compromise them?

In my understanding of this scenario, this is a major MAJOR security hole

the only way to avoid this would be to update valid address generation in the bitcoin protocol in a way that SecureRandom cannot generate a valid address at all.
