3  Economy / Service Discussion / MtGox account in the USA has been seized by the DHS? on: May 14, 2013, 07:10:28 PM
I just attempted to get a withdrawal of my USD from MtGox to Dwolla and got the following in an email:

Dwolla Support
MAY 14, 2013  |  01:44PM CDT
<name removed>,

Due to recent court orders by the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland seizing the account of Mutum Sigillum LLC (“Mt. Gox”), Dwolla is immediately no longer legally able to service Mutum Sigillum LLC’s account.

As a result if you have not seen funds arrive in your Dwolla account from this merchant then this will not be occurring with Dwolla. You will want to contact Mutum Sigillum LLC (https://mtgox.com/contact-us) to inquire on how to go about withdrawing these funds.

Sincerely,
Dwolla Support

Anyone else seen this? I guess this is the fallout from the Coinlab lawsuit?

5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / BitCoin = JesusCoin on: June 07, 2011, 06:14:36 AM
I'm not overstating it, I swear - search for "Jesus" on the forum - you find His presence at least in 20+ different instances!  Cool (sorry atheists, tho I have great respect for you too as it takes 1000x more faith to deny God/Jesus/Holy Spirit than to surrender as I a little weakling have Smiley

7  Bitcoin / Wallet software / I don't like Gavin's and Jeff's Bitcoin client - can I write my own? on: June 03, 2011, 01:33:35 AM
So I woke up one morning and decided I don't like Gavin's and Jeff's bitcoin clients for any of the platforms.

Can I write my own, and is there anything technically stopping me from doing this if I were to follow the rules of trading/transactions on the Bitcoin network?

Maybe I want to write a Haskell or a Clojure client... or Ruby. Is there anything stopping me from writing one and getting other people to use it if they see value in it?

Where is the protocol specified of how to write a Bitcoin client/daemon?

Thanks!
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Who is Satoshi? on: June 02, 2011, 02:47:53 AM
I think it's one of:

1) Bruce Schneier - cryptographer
2) Niklas Zennström - Skype
3) Justin Frankel/Tom Pepper (posing as one person) - GNUTella
4) A combination of the above plus a few theoretical/applied economists 

Your take? Huh
