3  Economy / Economics / Hidden Secrets of Money on: March 19, 2014, 10:49:18 AM
The other day I saw this video.
And I came across many more videos saying more or less the same.
It is very clear that the people behind such videos are against the current system.
That makes the message that they are spreading and explaining a bit colored.
Now, I'm not an economist. I really don't know how much of it is true (maybe all, I don't know).
I'm hoping that there are people roaming these forums that have more understanding of the subject, and would take some time to explain some stuff.
Because I'm thinking that every system has its flaws, but our current system can't be all bad, right?
I suspect some nuances can be made regarding this subject.

Here are some questions that I have about this video:
  • Does it really work as the video claims it to be?
  • Does the same yield for the Euro or Yen for example?
  • Would a gold standard really solve all our problems, or would it create others?
  • Why would a sovereign country give the right to make money to a private corporation with stockholders, so that they can collect interest? They could just do it themselves without having to pay interest.
  • Does it really only work if the system collapses every 150 years or so, which would be the logical future as pictured by the video?
  • If the current system only works if new debt is created to pay the interest on the principle, why aren't a lot of economists rebelling against it?
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Somebody posted a challenge on Reddit on: March 06, 2014, 11:01:44 AM
Yesterday I came across this.
Somebody is offering 6BTC for cracking a brainwallet address.
3 words from the Oxford english dictionary, combined 17 characters long, all lowercase, without any spaces or special characters.
At the end one number is appended.

A lot of people warned that brainwallet is a bad way to store bitcoins.
But after following the comments for a while, it seems quite hard to crack the code.
Mostly due to the huge number of possibilities involved.
Of course, it could just be someone trolling.

Any thoughts on this?
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Unconfirmed Transactions on: January 17, 2014, 04:45:00 PM
Sometimes I notice on that a new block is found, but contains only one transaction. That one transaction is of course the block reward. This mostly happens if the block is found within a minute after the previous block. Nothing strange so far.
But when I look at the unconfirmed transactions, sometimes more than 2000 pop up. I don't know if gives a distorted view of the situation, but does somebody knows what is going on here.
Second thing I noticed, is that GHash.IO, at the moment the biggest pool, only appears to make blocks of ~243kB. BTC Guild often makes much bigger blocks. Probably it is up to them to choose how much transactions they want to include, but is it a good thing?
6  Economy / Gambling / Block Chain Lottery on: January 16, 2014, 01:49:39 PM

In December 2013 we launched a new Bitcoin based lottery called Block Chain Lottery. It doesn't have a big jackpot (yet), but this was never the intention. It's true that it is one of many lotteries, but it is the product of trying to build something with Bitcoin to better understand it. Most of all we want to apply this knowledge to other ideas we have. Anyhow, it does exists now and we hope people like playing it. This tread is mostly intended for answering any questions, reporting bugs, and for giving feedback.

  • Fully automated and does only depends on the block chain.
  • Two kinds of lotteries are available. A fixed size lottery and a progressive lottery. (Fixed size is not yet in place.)
  • Provably fair, tickets can be checked with only data from the block chain.
  • Funds to cover the prices can be found on the site.
  • Tickets appear on the site after one confirmation plus a maximum of ten minutes. Prices are paid once a day.
  • Only 1mBTC per ticket.
7  Other / Beginners & Help / Can't insert avatar on: December 15, 2013, 12:49:54 PM
I can't seem to insert an avatar. I'm trying to insert one with an URL, but when I press 'change profile' the text field is just empty again.
Is it because I don't have enough posts yet, or something else?
