1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / 2 emails hacked from Mt Gox - how? on: June 20, 2011, 09:25:28 AM
Hi folks

I only registered and had a look around Mt Gox - I never used it.

I have been through the csv list and found my login and email address.

I am getting the messages from Mt Gox at this address, and also some weird spam telling me to use Tradehill.

But - I am also getting exactly the same emails at another email address I use.

I can't remember - did Mt Gox ask for 2 emails? If not, where have these ppl got my 2nd email from.

Where ever it is, its not from that accounts.csv file that is going around

2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / My Friend wants to accept Bitcoins for staying in his hostel - how? on: June 06, 2011, 06:57:14 AM
Hi

A friend of mine runs a backpacker hostel here in Kings Cross. PayPal has refused to allow them to open an account because the hostel is run as a trust not a company (go ask PayPal why not...)

He asked me what to do and I said  "I've got an idea..."

Explained BitCoin to him, he found it complicated but then left me with a simple question which I can't really answer:

"So how do I take the money out into Australian Dollars?"

I've looked at Mt Gox, it seems pretty convoluted to me to get the money out to anywhere much except a bank account in Europe and they dock you 2% for that.

Could someone nice step me through the process of converting Bitcoins accepted in return for goods and services into a bank account - preferably in Australia but a US one at a pinch I guess.


Are we still expecting too much that Bitcoins be freely convertible into and out of cash?
