2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin Presentation at University of New York in December on: October 24, 2011, 06:08:03 AM
Quote from: Yifu Guo
I've been asked to do a presentation/event sort of thing for Bitcoins at NYU sometime in December, more detail will follow when I set up a site for it as I plan to provide transparency in this project as well*.

edit: for those who don't know me, I'm the host of NYC bitcoin weekly meet up, webmaster and coordinator of and

I however being the more technical guy when it comes to Bitcoins feels a bit lost trying to become essentially a "sales" person and perhaps being too granular in the information. I hope to get some feedback on what important stuff I should focus on during this presentation from the community.

What I have in mind so far are:

  • Fiat Money vs Bitcoins
  • Bitcoin User Cases e.g. international remittance.
  • Tech Demo: currently plan to send some btc over skype to a different continent.
  • Temp Exchange: making easy for audience to obtain/buy bitcoins.
comments/questions/feedback are greatly welcome, Thanks reddit Smiley


I'll be forwarding the information in the forums over, Thanks!
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / #occupywallstreet #operationbitcoin GA Bitcoin Speech for Open Mic on: October 07, 2011, 06:14:46 PM
we need a short announcement about bitcoin in the context of #operationbitcoin and #occupywallstreet so it can be presented at the general assembly mic check as soon as possible.

info: According to Yifu there's no Mic at wall street, all talks and announcements are repeated in segments by the people who are around forming a human mic, take this into consideration; in addition it can not be too long, I feel under 5 sentences is pretty good.


there's no mic because cops took it and they aren't allowing the use of a sound amplifying device, so don't bother suggesting.

As the number of physical places that accepts Bitcoins grows many of the existing locator service had listed bitcoin users side by side with stores and locations which made it very hard to navigate; with the Bitcoin conference fast approaching in New York City we thought it was a good idea to make a site like this for the sole purpose of listing physical locations which accept and deal with Bitcoins.

Feel free to use the contact form and inform us any new spots!
Feedback, comments and questions welcome.

7  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Double-spending technical question on: August 04, 2011, 06:55:09 PM
Let's say in a scenario where A and B both spends the same coins. and A is faster(earlier time stamp, assuming no block based attack were also executed.)

What would B see? say in his client for example, what indication would the bitcoind give to B that the transaction failed, would it not confirm? or will it say something else.


feel free to talk about other double-spending related things in this thread.
8  Bitcoin / Project Development / bitXfieds - a local Groupon classfieds service. on: June 15, 2011, 05:13:50 AM
Mission Statement
The goal of bitXfieds is to promote the usability of bitcoins empolying the method of local classifieds.
Acting locally bitXfieds allow bitcoin users find each other to build communities.
bitXfieds hopes by utilizing face to face trading can wipe the scam spawned fear and doubts smeared on to bitcoin's good name.

Hello, I'm proud to re-launch the bitXfieds service after some trail and errors and learned many things.

I realized the ultimate problem with Bitcoins is usability, it could matter less if it was worth $5 or $50 dollars;
it makes no difference if people don't use it aside from some quick vaporware stock trading.

So I spend some in the last week contacting a few local stores in my area (New York City),
and so far got the following stores to sell their products for Bitcoins using the bitXfieds service.

AC Gears - Headphones and other Tech Gadgets -
The Stand - Comics, TCGs, used/new Console Games.

I managed to work out some discounts as well e.g.
  • a Magic the Gathering booster box is only 4.8 BTC.(~90 bucks)

They will be added to the website shortly.

Anyways, I plan to contact several other stores and distributors in the future

questions, comments and grievances welcomed; bitXfieds would love to know!

Did I mention this is completely free of charge?

10  Economy / Marketplace / [bitXfieds] craigslist-like site. FEEDBACK PLEASE! on: June 06, 2011, 03:55:26 AM
I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and it only takes suspicion, not proof, to destroy it.

While it's a good thing that anonymity is built-in to the core of bitcoins, trading of bitcoins has been riddled with scam spawned fears and doubts.

bitXfieds utilize the strong aspect of face-to-face trading within your local area in hopes fix this problem.

Currently it supports NYC, USA where I locally reside.

other area recommendations are welcome, as well as categories.
