1  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / I Predict Difficulty Will Be Over 100 Million by Summer 2013 on: September 30, 2012, 04:51:08 AM
This is mostly for my own amusement. Bump this to tell me how wrong or right I was when summer arrives  Grin
2  Bitcoin / Project Development / [BOUNTY] 185+ BTC - Open Transactions Client (for Grandmas) on: September 02, 2012, 08:38:04 PM
I'm not even going to pretend to understand all the features & possibilities that Open Transactions offers.

I read a bit about it and felt like I should take the short bus from now on. Baskets here, nyms there, Chaumian something or other... it frankly left my head swimming and I put it on my list of things to look into when I had more free time (and possibly a brain upgrade) to try and wrap my head around it.

But that doesn't stop me from realizing that OT is very powerful and can become extremely useful in the future.

So to claim this bounty we need you to provide an easy to use, open source, cross-platform client. Something my grandma (who thinks firefox is "the google", and "internets" her emails to me) would be able to use.

FellowTraveler has stated that the API is high-level & easy to use, so anyone making a client really only needs to worry about the display layer. He recommends using C++ or Java since those are the best tested.

I simply haven't dug into OT enough to adequately make such judgements, so I will defer to FellowTraveler in this regard. If he says you have created such a client I will make good on my portion of the bounty.

Devs and testers are available in #opentransactions on FreeNode

6  Economy / Securities / Reputation Stock Markets on: June 13, 2012, 02:57:25 AM
After seeing PatrickHarnett's thread about a credit rating system while having Accelerando open in the tab next to it, I got to thinking about the reputation markets Charles Stross writes about in the book.

Why not try for a constantly updated efficient market model for reputation/credit ranking based on crowdsourced information?

I'm still trying to wrap my head around a method that would work without allowing the negative incentivizations people may have in trying to tank someone's rep to buy in low and then wait for them to build their rep back up to sell high.

People have had similar ideas before.

It would be an interesting experiment IMHO, and I'd love to hear any ideas about how to make this a reality.

12  Bitcoin / Pools / Pool Owner Keeping Generated Blocks? on: July 13, 2011, 08:00:16 PM
Hey, I've noticed some rather strange behavior at a pool recently, and I was wondering if there is any mechanism in place to prevent a pool owner from secretly keeping a generated block for himself or a way to find out if he is doing so?

Would it do anything other than make the pool look unlucky for the moment?

Is there any way to track which pool solved a block without relying on their own reported stats?
