1  Economy / Currency exchange / [SOLD] 1 BTC for $400 MP on: November 14, 2013, 01:27:02 AM

2  Economy / Service Discussion / Steam Games for Bitcoins? on: November 09, 2013, 07:26:33 PM
As some of the members from almost a year ago remember, I used to sell steam games for Bitcoins on a website. The reason I had to stop was because I started getting more Bitcoins than I could make from my job. Well, thanks to Moneypak...I can now fund my account within only a few hours (as long as the MP<>BTC traders are online).

So, I ask the community once again: Should I sell Steam games for BTC again?

Price: American Steam(USD) + 7% fee

As title states: I want to buy $500 in Moneypak.
4  Bitcoin / Project Development / [Proposal] P2P Decenteralized Bitcoin Exchange on: April 12, 2013, 10:52:45 PM
In the recent events, I have decided to officially create this proposal. It's very messily written, because I wanted feedback as soon as possible. The original post created by NothinG from this thread is subject to change (for the better, if changes happen).

I have been very interested in creating a P2P De-Centralized Currency Exchange in C# for ~2 years. I've done much researched and messed around with different sections of code needed to create what we need. I've been looking into almost every resource I can for the past week more in-depth to see what it would take to create the most efficient exchange. Here are my suggestions, and if anyone is willing to talk me through it while I code...we could actually knock something out before Monday for testing. This would require very little sleep over the weekend (it's when I do my best coding), but with this...it could save Bitcoin from "Centralized Corruption!"

The project would no-doubtlessly become open-source; do prepare for that when it happens.

What do I need from you to help?
 - Microphone. I don't like talking on the phone too much, but require communication via VoIP.
 - C style Pseudocode. (I can also work with a Java or PHP style, the language will be c-based).
 - Basic ideas of how API's work.

What would you get out of this?
 1) Knowing you helped create something that almost everyone should use for currency exchange.
 2[?]) If there is a bounty and is accepted, the bounty will be split (percentages will be discussed).
 3) All donations, if the project is to accept them, will be split (percentages will be discussed).

Ideas
Code:
Suggested Price?

Technical Ideas?
Code:
I2P (p2p bootstrap + optional security protocol) [Requires I2P to be installed for usage]
NoSQL (distributed database) http://nosql-database.org/
Bitcoin (bootstrap + we can use this to verify ownership of an address)

5  Economy / Speculation / MtGox acting fishy? Not in the lag way... on: April 10, 2013, 07:52:07 PM
Doesn't it seem weird that the depths are short during a noticeable downfall?
I think it's because I watched this video yesterday: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fvSYT7vhQY

6  Economy / Economics / Fears of the Future of Bitcoins on: April 09, 2013, 03:16:57 PM
Ask anyone who knows me, they will tell you I'm obsessed with Bitcoin. I have no doubt that Bitcoins will grow and entire countries may start adapting the currency into their every-day economy. With that, I give you my fears.

For the businesses who don't/can't use Bitcoins: It is possible that Bitcoin can become to big to actually threaten the usage of the United States Dollar. With this, it is also possible that big businesses (Government, Visa, Mastercard, Paypal) that rely on this "USD" may soon fear the BTC. There is a possibility of them getting together to take out a monetary loan to attempt to eradicate the exchange of Bitcoins for USD. What's $1,000,000,000 to milti-billion dollar companies to save their USD from loosing it's value?

For the businesses who use (or require the use of) Bitcoins: There will be little fear of Bitcoins unless government intervenes and denies the usage for sales. This will do one of two things: 1) Drive Bitcoins into the ground, or strait into underground-only markets or 2) force companies to shutdown/re-locate in support of the ever-growing new currency (unlikely).

If it hasn't already, Bitcoins will change the idea of currency for the world. Even if Bitcoins doesn't succeed, the idea of having a decentralized economy will still spring back up in the future one way or another. Mark my words, by ~2023 (this date should sound familiar) either Bitcoins will be the only currency or a look-alike will take it's place.

What would help keep Bitcoins alive? My idea?
It would take a movement to convert people from constantly using USD to: occasionally using USD and constantly using BTC. First, businesses will need to start accepting Bitcoins wide-scale. Unfortunately, the USD/BTC market isn't deep enough for any multi-billion dollar companies to see the use in accepting this currency where they can't even afford to pay the electricity bill on all their buildings in Bitcoins without crashing the exchanges.

We need to talk to as many small-to-medium size ($1-$10 million/year) companies in order to create a stable growth in Bitcoins. Once the depths reach ~$5million (to move BTC/USD $1), that is when it would be suitable for larger companies ($10-$50 million/year) to start accepting. After that, it would be a toss-up for larger companies to start accepting.

These are my guesses. Everything is from my brain (watching markets, trading, news...etc).

Would anyone be interested in joining an RS private server?
This would be a 3xx server as that's the only thing that would be legal to run.
9  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / VMware + Windows + CGMiner = Remote CGMiner on: August 28, 2012, 04:38:06 AM


I love this being my little setup.
Does anyone else like the idea or is this just pointless?
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [PPC] NothinG's Pool (Beta Testing) on: August 23, 2012, 03:33:41 AM
http://46.166.138.142/

This is a Mining Pool for PPC ( http://ppcoin.org/ ).

Expected Changes?
- Fix expected pay-out rate.
- Fix shares per block (now that I've figured out how to check the block information that has been found).

FAQ
-Q-: Why are we not getting paid for our hard work?
-A-: Turns out, the blocks have to hit a minimum of 520 confirmations before the PPC gets sent to the balance.


I'm not sure what else to say. If you have any questions, feel free to ask here. Please don't PM me, you're questions are most likely to be answered more quickly here than by waiting ~6-12 hours on a reply from me.

[NB]: I'm moving the site to Beta stage as theoretically everything will work without anything breaking it (meaning no matter what happens, it is safe to mine without fear of loosing your work).


[Changes]
-8/23/2012-
Added server uptime.
Fixed site-wide shares submitted since our last block was found;
Added "your" shares since last block if you're logged in, as well as the total # of blocks the pool has found so far.

Registration Link? Send me a PM requesting an account, and I'll get you one setup.
12  Economy / Currency exchange / [WTB]> LibertyReserve (130 USD) [Have]> Mt.Gox Code (150 USD) on: July 30, 2012, 02:27:09 AM
I have a Mt.Gox Code worth 150 USD and want Liberty Reserve USD.

Quote from: terms
I will trade the 150 USD Mt.Gox Code for at least LR 130 USD. (means, +20 LR USD you get to keep)

The only reason I'm asking to trade on the forums is because https://www.aurumxchange.com/ 's captcha is currently broken, and thus I'm in dire need of an instant transaction.
13  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / ~4 BTC Stuck In Wallet on: June 10, 2012, 10:36:05 PM
So, my client isn't able to get the block chain because of how I set my clock on my computer (I think it's crappy, but I don't care).
Anyways, if someone would volunteer to get the coins out of the wallet.dat and send me at least 3 BTC.
I have a feeling I'll get jacked of all the BTC, but I'm tired of knowing it's there.

Please send me a PM if you'd like to help. I'm looking for members that I think would be trustworthy.
14  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / [Help] BitForce Single Powersupply Died? on: May 29, 2012, 04:01:33 AM
So, when I was away for vacation my miner's power supply just up-and-died.
When I got home, I check to make sure it wasn't anything else and it was all good.

How would I be able to tell if it's dead or just something minor is wrong?

--The back of the adapter--

Replacement AC Adapter
Model: ST-C-120-12001000CT
Input: 100-240V-2.5A 50/60Hz
Output: 12V |: 10A
---------------------------

I'm probably going to head to my local nerd-shack to buy a new one, but I wanted to make sure it wasn't something that maybe I did?
15  Economy / Auctions / [Inquiring] Selling PHPCO.IN on: April 10, 2012, 03:43:22 AM
So, this project died quickly. I've been sitting on it for a while.

Have no idea what its worth, looking for anyone interested in it.

I'm not selling it for at least a month as I've got one last project (email) riding on it.

18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / [0.6.0 RC4] Bitcoin Crashing on: March 23, 2012, 03:57:52 AM


I haven't done anything strange, so I can't figure out what would have gone wrong.
Same error shows up in bitcoind.
19  Other / Off-topic / Chipboards/Breadborads & Developing. Educate me, please. on: March 22, 2012, 03:46:38 AM
What I'm looking to know is just information. I'll do some gathering and pricing and see where I need to go from there.

I "think" I'm looking at:
- Breadboard (until I get it all wired out, then moving on to an actual circuit board).
- Resistors (not really sure what I'll need until I get further into the board itself).
- Timer (Looking for a small resistor size-like timer that can count to say 5 seconds and continue, almost like Sleep()).
- Power (How much power would I be looking at)?
...and if not much trouble:
- LCD Screen (nothing bigger than say an old telephone sized. I only want to display a few things. I may go with a bigger ~50x200px if I decide to program more).
-- Program (So, do I need a chip or some-sort? This is the first time I've ever thought about programming on a chipboard)


Some rules so we can stay a little bit on track;
1) Please don't flame (ex. "Dude, you're like so totally in over your head". Yes, I know this. This is for fun and education.)
2) I honestly don't know that much. I've got a friend helping me with some of the hardware, but I'm more of the programmer. He's got a breadboard and some stuff to start the build, but I wanted to try to educate myself before we even get near it.

Okay, so to the fun stuff and my main question;
What do I need to get/do (software, hardware, time..etc) to get started?

Thank you Bitcoin community in advanced. <3
20  Other / Off-topic / Simple BAT - Internet UP? No?...okay, keep trying on: March 20, 2012, 07:58:16 AM
Code:
@echo off
REM - A simple batch file to do a constant ping even if the server is unreachable
:pingGoogle
@echo on
ping google.com -t
@echo off
goto :pingGoogle

The power and internet at my house kept going on and off, so I made a batch file to let me know when it was online so I could make a post.
Pretty much a really useless script.

I would have just left: ping google.com -t running...except if there was no internet connection, it would kill the ping and wait for a new ping attempt.
