4  Economy / Goods / [WTS] NIB Verizon Branded Moto E on: December 22, 2015, 11:56:19 PM
New in box Verizon branded Moto E cell phone. Sealed, never opened.

More info:

This is branded as Verizon but has GSM bands (ATT, Tmo) in addition to CDMA bands (Verizon, Sprint), so it can accept a SIM from almost any carrier in the world.

Asking 0.1 BTC (Shipped, US only). I have 3 to sell.

I've been on the forums a while. Haven't been active the last year or 2. So escrow OK by me, you pay escrow fee.

These make great primary or backup phones. I use mine as WiFi only device to hold encrypted backups of my Bitcoin wallets, Google Authenticator keys, etc. You could us it as a music player (has expandable storage via micro SD) or dedicated family Chromecast device. Runs Android Lollipop. Comes with a protective case.

5  Economy / Services / Wanted: Graphics Design Specialist to Design a Logo on: January 07, 2014, 04:28:14 PM
Hi, a couple years ago I paid for a logo design here on this forum, and was really satisfied. Currently can't get ahold of the member who did the logo for me, so I'm posting an open invite again for a logo I want for my bitcoin consulting service.

I'm asking any graphic artists interested in designing this for me to please post a link to your work and I'll contact you. If you also have experience building websites, this may be a service I'll need in the future. I'm offering $60 payable in BTC for a design I use, which is negotiable.

6  Bitcoin / Mining support / Need help from a Portland/Seattle area miner - Please build me a rig! on: April 05, 2013, 11:55:43 PM
I'm extremely interested in Bitcoin and fairly knowledgeable about how it works. I have some capital and want to start mining bitcoins and litecoins, but I'm terrible with computers and need some help. I've been a bitcoin advocate since 2011, but when it comes to graphics cards and processors and power supplies and hash rates...well, my brain just doesn't work that way.

I need someone in the area who has a lot of experience mining bitcoins to help me assemble a rig. You need to advise me on what I need to buy, you need to assemble it, you need to set me up with a mining pool, and you need to be okay with me looking over your shoulder every step of the way and asking you stupid questions because I really want to learn how it works. I would guess your total work time would be 4-8 hours.

My wife and I will be in Clackamas (Portland, Oregon) starting April 15th.

Reward is 1 BTC at today's exchange of $140/coin

MUCH appreciated  Grin

7  Other / Politics & Society / The Very Worst Thing About the Federal Reserve on: June 17, 2012, 08:41:32 PM
The fact that the value of the dollar has declined by over 96% since the creation of the Federal Reserve Central Bank is NOT the most important thing to know about the Federal Reserve. The fact that they alone have the ability to counterfeit our currency is NOT the most important thing. The fact that they can make our economy swing wildly through cycles of boom and bust (partially through the practice of fractional reserve banking) and leave economic destruction in its wake is NOT the most important thing about the Fed. The fact that they have looted our wealth by completely removing precious metals from our coinage and currency redemption is NOT the most important thing. 

The most important thing to know about the Federal Reserve, and much more disturbing, is the power that this and other central banks give governments to wage war. Our two tragic World Wars were NOT possible without the Federal Reserve. The ability for governments to borrow money from thin air and go into debt for war created the largest-scale wars in the history of the planet and tallest pile of corpses in the history of the planet. Central Bank debt gave us aircraft carriers. It gave us submarines. It gave us nuclear weapons. Have we done good with them?

Even now, the ability of the treasury to type numbers into its bank account enables the largest military and police state to abuse, incarcerate, and kill innocents both foreign and domestic. 

This is the most important thing about the Federal Reserve. This is why money of the future can't have a central authority. Or if it does, we better make damn sure it's not a government. We better make damn sure that the ones who control our money are not the same ones with a self-declared "legal" monopoly on the morally illicit use of violence - which is to say: free from authoritarian coercion. 

Money, the result (not the cause) of our work, our effort, and our intellect, is essential for our survival and comfort. If you hate money, it's because you've never seen it. It's because money as we know it today is not free. Free market money only means "voluntary and peaceful transactions." This is the opposite of that dollar in your wallet. 

Free your money. Free your mind. 
8  Economy / Goods / Colt Model 1849 Percussion Revolver - ANTIQUE & LEGAL on: March 22, 2012, 08:57:15 PM
This Colt model 1849 percussion revolver was manufactured in 1856. Most bluing is gone. Cylinder scene is about 20%. Some light scuffs. Initials lightly stamped. Mechanically, this pistol is in excellent shape. Action is smooth. Mechanics are excellent. All serial numbers match. A great piece of history. Perhaps the cheapest one you'll ever come across.

This is an antique "non-firearm." In other words, it is not classified as a firearm under federal law and therefore legal to possess anywhere in the U.S., even where I am in NYC. Local pickup preferred. Shipping offered.

150 BTC.

9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Forced to upgrade to 5.1 - Can someone explain why? on: January 09, 2012, 03:33:26 AM
Using a mac here. Yesterday my bitcoin application logo had a question mark superimposed on it. Clicking on it did nothing. I searched my computer for any application or file containing the word "bitcoin." I thought my bitcoins were lost.

I later downloaded the latest version of the app - 5.1. Upon opening the client for the first time, the bitcoins from my old client appeared.

All's well in the end, but can someone explain how this occurred? How did my old client just disappear? And how did my coins re-appear in the new client?

11  Economy / Goods / FS: Nearly Complete Set of THE OBECTIVIST (by Ayn Rand, Nathaniel Branden, etc) on: January 03, 2012, 11:14:04 PM
Formerly The Objectivist Newsletter, The Objectivist was issued monthly from January of 1966 to September of 1971. This is nearly a complete set. Of the 69 issues of The Objectivist, this set is only missing 1 (Sep 1971). You can periodically find a replacement on eBay. Writers include Ayn Rand (or course), Nathaniel Branden, and Leonard Peikoff. Asking 40 BTC. You could pick up in NYC (preferred) or I can mail.

These completely original soft-cover mailings have been put into a custom hard-cover binding, but the originals are still removable.

12  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Could the Power of the Bitcoin Miner Network be Used Elsewhere? on: August 17, 2011, 01:02:16 AM
I was just reading about how CERN is recruiting volunteers to allow their computing power to be used in a
Cloud Computing network to assist CERN in finding the "God Particle." I'm not sure how that would work, except I do know that random people around the globe are allowing CERN to essentially tap into their computer's processing power to create a cloud super computer.

I then though of the Bitcoin miner network, which uses massive processing power. Can this power be directed towards the use of some purpose other than mining simultaneously, or does the processing power begin and end solving the blocks?
13  Other / Politics & Society / Freedom Newsletter! on: August 10, 2011, 06:16:49 PM
In my ongoing mission to further advance the cause of liberty, I started a daily, free, emailed newsletter last week and have gotten some great response so far. I talk about issues of freedom and individual liberty, economics, politics, technology, gold, silver, and of course Bitcoin!

I give you breaking news and rational insight and commentary on current events. Completely free, no ads, just a great way to start your morning. All you need to do is PM me your email address. Here is an excerpt from today's newsletter:

NPR and the Audio-Drugging of Society

10 August 2011 10:45 AM EST

If you are aware of even the most minor of intricacies regarding our current political state (in other words, if you are awake), then you know that listening to mainstream media is like trying to decipher a foreign language. The words may be coming through crystal clear, but trying to make sense of them can be mentally exhausting. 

Take NPR, for example. Last week, my truck radio was mostly tuned to the New York City NPR station (WNYC). While extremely serious events are taking place around the world, such as U.S. debt expansion and financial crises in Europe, child slavery in China, famine in Somalia, along with wars of aggression in various middle-eastern countries, NPR chose to devote the majority of their airtime to the following topics (I've created hyperlinks to each story in case you think I'm joking):

- The History of Helvetica (the font) in the New York Subway System.
- How to prepare lobster.
- Earth may have once had two moons.
- Low-cost vacation rental websites.
- On-screen romances.
- An architect building an exceptionally narrow house.
- The physics of roller coasters.

These things may be worth talking about (perhaps even dimly interesting) in a world where there is no war, no starvation, no child abuse, no forced taxation, and no Federal Reserve debt slavery. Unfortunately, that is not the world we live in. Talking about the physics of roller-coasters when tens of thousands of innocent people are incarcerated each year for smoking a naturally-occurring plant is circus-quality distraction on a grand scale. For NPR to pose as an objective and informative source for important news is borderline criminal. read the rest of the story, please subscribe to the newsletter by sending me your email address. I promise it will be worth it!

Thanks and peace,

Nick Foley

15  Economy / Marketplace / Wanted: Advertiser for a Small Business, Work From Home on: June 04, 2011, 11:40:14 PM
Hi, I recently bought a web site and logo with Bitcoins through this forum and it worked great. I am currently looking for someone to help me with online advertising for my swimming pool company. I have tried Google Adwords, Yellow Pages, and Craigslist, and response was not great. Craigslist was the best (two clients gained after 15+ posts). Through this, I've learned that I am not great when it comes to online advertising. I need someone experienced at getting clients.

Your job would be to get me clients. Maybe this means CL postings in a different format, posting in local newspapers or forums, creation of website banners, revamping my Google campaign, I don't know. I'm only looking for someone with experience in the field who is good at online stuff and knows how to get results. You can work from home. If you live in New York City, you can hit the streets. If you are multi-talented and my business grows, you may consider doing other secretarial/managerial work for me.

If interested, please PM me with your relevant work experience (I'm not really interested in looking at a resume), what you do now, what kind of things you're good at that are relevant to the job, and what you charge for the service. I would like to pay to with Bitcoins.

I was thinking something along the lines of 1 BTC per regular client who signs up, but I am open to suggestions/negotiations. Also this offer may change as the BTC price changes. I would also request a face-to-face (if in NYC) or skype interview before "hiring" you. My website is if you'd like to check out the company. THANKS!
16  Economy / Marketplace / Selling the domain name: on: June 03, 2011, 10:46:08 PM

Lots of potential, especially with the rise of mobile video viewing and mobile video cameras capable of uploading from virtually anywhere.

Could be a great blog - embedding selected videos from YouTube, etc. catered to your audience.

Asking 15 Bitcoins. Negotiable, of course.

19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Need help encrypting on: May 24, 2011, 12:56:55 AM
Hey all, seems the consensus is that backup wallet.dat files should be kept encrypted. I've never done this before, and am struggling. Here's what I've done so far:

- Downloaded truecrypt
- Created a "volume"
- Dragged and dropped my wallet.dat file inside my volume.

Now here's where I get confused. When I try to open the volume file on my comp, it gives me this string of gobblygook text. Is that my wallet.dat contents? If so, why didn't it ask for my password before I opened it?

I can also access wallet.dat through the TrueCrypt application, but when I try to open it it opens with EyeTV (a cable converter).

More questions:
- If I email the encrypted volume file containing wallet.dat, do I need truecrypt to open it on another computer?
- Assuming I can find the wallet.dat, how do I get the bitcoins onto the bitcoin application that sends/receives money? What if the bitcoin application already exists on that computer? Can you create another one? Or do the coins add on to the balance of the existing app?

It's all very confusing. I am impressed with those who see this stuff as second nature. HELP.
20  Other / Obsolete (buying) / Help me with my Website, earn BTC on: May 19, 2011, 11:20:00 PM
Hi, I recently bought a domain for my small business (servicing/repairing swimming pools) from GoDaddy and tried to set it up with one of their templates. I'm not doing so well. I should learn but the curve seems pretty overwhelming. I need someone to do a simple, 6 or 7 page website for me, with all the links as they should be. I'll send you all the text I want on each page, and what pages I want, but otherwise you can be creative with or without the template I already have set up.

My bounty is 10 BTC. I know it's not a lot, but I'm really just looking for something simple, not fancy. BUT I do want BANG for my BUCK. I know I'm not paying for corporate shine here, but I want it to be appealing to my customers.

I may not have many posts here as reputation, but I am active in the YouTube community under the same username, BookofNick, where I interviewed Bruce Wagner about BTC. If you're interested, please send me a couple samples of your work to my email at
