2  Economy / Speculation / Gox is at $1,000 - will it ever go lower again? on: January 05, 2014, 06:57:23 PM
Discuss why/why not.

For me personally - I think we are in the early stages of a rally to an ATH. I'm not sure though how much this revitalized BTC is depending on that good news from Facebook.

Thoughts?
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Buying 1 BTC worth of LTC on: January 04, 2014, 05:05:25 PM
Hullo thar.

I'm looking to add to my stash of Litecoin.

Going by BTC-e's current fiat prices, I'd like to receive 32 LTC in exchange for 1 BTC, which I think is a pretty good deal at the moment.

If you want some details or (knock on wood) to haggle for a deal, feel free to PM me. I'll try to get back to you as soon as I can.

Thanks!


4  Other / Beginners & Help / So, how *exactly* does the trust system work? on: December 29, 2013, 05:04:34 AM
I figure this would best be put under the noob section.

I get that it is nothing but a record of a user's trades to be taken for what it is. It's not a magic barometer that means you won't lose your Bitcoins when dealing with this person.

But what does it all mean?

For example, on my profile I'm looking at this:

0: -0 / +2(0)

What does each number mean? It looks like Total Trust: -negative deals \ +positive deals (mystery number)

Furthermore, what does it take to make that sumbitch green and legitimize my presence as a trader? I'm guessing my account needs to be more than 2 weeks old, but I've completed a couple transactions with members here and it never gets any easier.

Any and all details you can elucidate for me on the trust feature would be appreciated.

Many thanks.

I'd like to try my hand at LTC.

Given the current exchange rates (USD, BTC-E charts) I think 30 LTC for 1 BTC is a decent deal.

Please get my attention here or PM me for details.

I haven't tried my hand at Peer 2 Peer transfers yet (I stick to online banks like Coinbase) so I'd kinda prefer to get my precious LTC first from a trusted forum member... hope that's not a big deal.  Tongue

Thanks!

6  Economy / Speculation / Predict some big monthly events for BTC in 2014 on: December 25, 2013, 09:48:15 PM
Just some fun speculation - I'm trying to guess a Bitcoin event for every month of the year.

January -
February - U.S. debt ceiling debates spark a modest rise in price.
March - 2nd Q of the U.S. Fiscal Year - Overstock.com begins to accept BTC payments.
April -
May - Some weirdo will name his kid after Bitcoin.
June - By this time Coinbase will have accepted (or announced they will accept) LTC, opening the door for other altcoins and raising awareness.
July -
August -
September -
October -
November -
December -


Try and fill in the blanks!

Will be updated as input comes in.
7  Bitcoin / Press / [Week of 12-18-13 to 12-25-13] WWE Superstar Kane on BTC on: December 25, 2013, 02:58:20 PM
When I was a kid, my favorite wrassler was a masked 7-foot, 330 pound monster named Kane.

Turns out Kane's real name is Glenn Jacobs, and he's a very thoughtful, very intelligent guy. He is also very aware of Bitcoin.

He has started publishing articles/giving interviews about Bitcoin among other libertarian-type stuff... I am amazed someone whose job it was to smash other men with steel chairs is so articulate.

Just wanted to introduce myself -

I'm relatively new to the whole Bitcoin thing, but have been lurking here several weeks and have found the intelligence of this community as a whole to be enlightening. Thought it might be fun to participate myself.

I will start by saying that in technical terms, I am everything you hate.

  • I got into BTC during the November rise and started day-trading.
  • I use Coinbase.
  • I invest in BTC almost purely as a speculator and am waiting to become one of the new "wealthy elite" by selling them off.
  • I am bearish.


That being said, as a web developer and programmer I am fascinated by the mechanisms behind BTC and the community that has adopted its use - and I am in it for the long haul. I have about 5 BTC I intend to keep long-term, and would never be opposed to hearing you wise early-adopters out on something BTC-related.

So ...

Sup?
