1  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-04-13 - Bitcoin or bit-con? on: April 13, 2013, 12:56:28 PM
I (among other people) was briefly interviewed for this pretty good and rational article:

6  Economy / Trading Discussion / - looking for new features testers on: May 14, 2011, 08:52:05 PM
Hey everyone,

We have implemented a few new features that we need to test before deploying. Particularly the OTC rating integration with the website. We need someone with OTC rating to help us check whether all these features work properly. Please respond in this thread as soon as you can.

I just came back from the college to find that got down. Going through the firewall and apache2 logs clearly indicates someone performed an attack. I am going to examine the logs closely within the next hour or so. Also, the website was coming and going today. Are we under some general attack against Bitcoin related websites?
10  Economy / Marketplace / Exchange Bitcoins for Paypal safely (starting in a few days) on: May 01, 2011, 11:12:36 PM
We are planning on adding a secure for sellers option of trading BTC for Paypal on

After CoinPal was shut down we want to come to the rescue and provide a similar service. At the same time we want to make sure that people selling BTC in our exchange for Paypal will not be victims of chargeback.

On at the moment the Paypal option is enabled by default - anyone can buy and sell BTC for Paypal. The problem is that sellers do not want to accept Paypal because of chargebacks, so you won't see many offers selling Bitcoins for PP (or if you do - the prices are usually much higher than if wire-transfer is used). We want to fix this since we realise that many new users have no idea how to use IRC in order to trade on #otc or they have no idea how to come in possession of Liberty Reserve Dollars; or they simply don't want to pay commissions and wait for days until they get their LR USD to be able to trade on mtgox.

Mndrix (CoinPal) had a very good fraud avoidance system in place - chargebacks weren't the reason for which it was shut down. The reason was that Paypal didn't like the idea of exchanging BTC using that account. This is why we are not going to be selling BTC for Paypal ourselves, this would just get us shut down as well. Instead, we are introducing a reliable and trust-worthy platform where sellers can feel safe offering Paypal as a payment option.

Here's how we will achieve this:

The OTC rating is quite a reliable tool for verifying honesty (given that you investigate whom the positive feedback for the new users came from). On top of that we are going to introduce a verification system based on the CoinPal's one. There will also be more security checks for users who want to buy with Paypal (in some cases - address verification, ebay feedback will also be used as a reference along with some other ways of confirming identity and reliability). The option of buying with Paypal for each member will be MANUALLY enabled; we are going to dedicate our time to ensure that everyone will be checked before they can trade using Paypal (this of course only applies to buyers since the sellers will have their BTC frozen anyway).

Of course, if someone was an honest trader on CoinPal we will open your account without any problems (after consulting mndrix at YOUR request, so that he is not disclosing your private information without your consent) and you will be able to use Paypal straight away. We are, however, planning on putting a limit on every newcomer - which will be lifted once they have received 3 positive ratings from existing members. This doesn't apply to people with high positive #otc rating. By the way, the exchange will have its own feedback system.

If you are registered on or and you will be able to prove your identity we will also enable the Paypal option for you. There are plenty of ways.

So, if you guys could give me any feedback regarding what else we could do before we actually start coding that would be awesome. All suggestions welcome.
11  Economy / Trading Discussion / - should we accept USD? (USD added) on: May 01, 2011, 02:52:56 PM
We are considering adding support for USD to Does anyone know how expensive it is to transfer USD onto an European account? Would this help the US users in any way or should we not bother? Thanks for any advice/suggestion.

EDIT: We don't want to open a bank account in the USA, but we can open an European one accepting USD.

13  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / [solved] A 450BTC transaction didn't come through? offline? on: April 21, 2011, 10:14:46 AM
I have just tried sending 450 BTC to my other Bitcoin wallet and got something strange:

Both of Bitcoin clients are connected with at least 8 connections, a few blocks have passed since. The transaction appeared as unconfirmed/offline? even though I sent it while I had like 33 connections.

It did not show up on the other client at all. What happened?

After restarting the bitcoin client now it just says unconfirmed
14  Economy / Marketplace / mtgox all time graph doesn't update properly? on: April 18, 2011, 07:38:44 PM
Is it just me or is there something wrong with this graph? I could swear it used to update itself in real time just like the last 48 hour one
15  Bitcoin / Project Development / The Faucet is VERY low. Maybe we should top it up? on: April 08, 2011, 03:13:57 PM nothing left. Just to draw everyone's attention to this, if you have a spare coin or two, why not top it up.
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Put your BitCoin address in your business email signature on: April 08, 2011, 12:46:34 PM
This morning I have configured my own and all my employees' email message templates to put my company Bitcoin address in the signature. That feels so good. Smiley Hopefully some of our customers will ask what this is. I would suggest whoever can to do the same, you never know.
17  Other / Off-topic / Bill Gates on Ford on: April 06, 2011, 10:59:25 AM
At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared
the computer industry with the auto industry and stated,

'If FORD had kept up with technology like the computer industry has,
we would all be driving $25 cars that got 1,000 miles to the gallon.'


In response to Bill's comments, FORD issued a press release stating:
'If FORD had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be
driving cars with the following characteristics:

1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash...twice a day.

2. Every time they repainted the lines in the road, you would have
to buy a new car.

3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason. You
would have to pull to the side of the road, close all of the windows, shut
off the car, restart it, and reopen the windows before you could continue.
For some reason you would simply accept this.

4. Occasionally, executing a manoeuvre such as a left turn would cause
your car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to
reinstall the engine.

5. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was
reliable, five times as fast and twice as easy to drive - but would
run on only five percent of the roads.

6. The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lights would
all be replaced by a single 'This Car Has Performed An Illegal Operation'
warning light.

7. The airbag system would ask 'Are you sure?' before deploying.

8. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you
out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door
handle, turned the key and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.

9. Every time a new car was introduced car buyers would have to learn
how to drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in
the same manner as the old car.

10. You'd have to press the 'Start' button to turn the engine off.
18  Economy / Service Discussion / BitMarket.Eu has closed down on: April 05, 2011, 07:52:25 PM
This was created primarily to support PLN (Polish złoty), but we have decided not to limit ourselves and add support for EUR and GBP.

The way it works is a little bit different than usual and at the same time very similar to the old version of

In order to sell Bitcoins you need to transfer them to your BitMarket account and the minute you put up an offer the Bitcoins get frozen (until you cancel the offer or until it's filled).
To buy Bitcoins, you simply make an offer matching whatever is out there for sale. If your offer doesn't match any pending ones, it just stays there until it's filled.

Just like ebay, we leave it to the buyer and seller to decide on the payment methods etc. (the default is wire-transfer, but as a seller you can propose a different payment method if you want). Please note that if a method different than a wire-transfer is picked we will not be able to resolve any issues related to unsuccessful transactions (at least with the bank transfer the buyer can prove that they sent the money). We advise everyone not to accept Paypal or any other payment methods supporting charge backs from people you don't know. In the future, if the need be, we may introduce a feedback system, depending on the popularity of the exchange.

There is no commission (for now), so you can trade away for free. The only reason for which we may introduce commissions in the future would be if people started abusing the service to manipulate the bitcoin market price.

The access to the site is encrypted with an SSL certificate signed by GlobeSSL so you can rest assured that more than likely no-one will be able to eavesdrop your password.

After depositing some Bitcoins onto your account please be patient, because the values on the site refresh once per minute.

If you have any questions, suggestions or remarks please write in this thread or send an email to the address in the contact section on site.

This exchange is run by myself and a friend of mine so basically if you trust me you can trust the exchange.
