1  Economy / Services / BOUNTY .25 btc : combining different shopping portals for rewards programs on: November 03, 2013, 05:12:40 PM
Hello, some sites let you click through them before going to the actual store's website, enabling the consumer to get larger discounts and "points" with the initial site.

Although there can be different portals, many of those portals go to the same store website like to for instance

I am looking for how practical it is to combine those kind of sites via cookies or network analysis or other, to get multiple rewards for single orders

2  Bitcoin / Project Development / fiat trading fund, interest? on: September 09, 2013, 04:07:18 AM
Any interested in capital formation for a fiat trading fund?  

It would be options trading on portfolio margin, specifically selling options on indexes, butterfly spreads and condor spreads. so the returns can be greater and more volatile than simply holding bitcoins, and the fiat holdings would be hedged by buying/selling btc futures

It would be an asset of a group of established traders and researchers.
3  Economy / Gambling discussion / what position size for martingale? on: September 02, 2013, 05:15:15 PM
Hey guys, what position size do you use for martingales

so far I've only ever had a 6x losing streak before I have to switch to random walk, this is because my position size starts out at 1% of the gambling capital

do you guys bet with .5% or even smaller? this would let you get to 7 or 8 losing but it also requires more turns to make any decent winnings, increasing your personal odds of getting a longer losing streak if you haven't encountered it before (although I understand the losing streak can happen at any time since this is all luck)

9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / bitcoin to litecoin obfuscation on: March 21, 2013, 04:20:20 AM
Hello, I am well versed in the ability to follow bitcoin transactions in the blockchain. As well as a user's ability to further obfuscate by masking their IP address or splitting their bitcoin transaction to multiple addresses.

But what about bitcoin to litecoin?  I only thought about this after converting some on a different exchange just to check it out.

specifically I bought bitcoin with USD on mt gox where my identity is known to the mt gox operators. I then opened an account on vircunex, same IP address but no id verification necessary. I generated an address in my new brokerage account and transferred the bitcoins in mt gox to an address at vircunex. This transaction is recorded in the blockchain, but it is from one exchange to another and I suspect this is how it looks on the blockchain.  So far, I don't believe that anyone could tell the origin of the bitcoins or the funds used to buy those bitcoins from the blockchain alone. I don't own a wallet.

Continuing, now on vircunex I bought litecoins. Can anyone continue tracing bitcoin once they are converted to litecoin? Can the origin of those litecoins or the funds used to purchase those litecoins be determined? This is where my knowledge gets murky.

Continuing, litecoins cannot be redeemed for fiat on vircunex, but they can be transferred to an equally anonymous account on btc-e, via generating addresses and coupons. on btc-e they can be redeemed for US dollars.

this wasn't intentional, just wanted to diversify and play around with cryptocurrencies for the experience as well as check out arbitrage opportunities, but then I noticed the ability to remove capital from the more regulated financial system while remaining liquid and digital.

would like to discuss how one would trace this with crossreferencing blockchains or something.

10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / litecoin GPU mining, what is important? mhz or ram? on: March 20, 2013, 04:14:31 AM
Hello, what is most important in a gpu to be used for litecoin mining?

is it the amount of ram? the speed of the ram? the speed of the cores?

it seems that reaper and cgminer are the only two softwares relevant

any insight appreciated
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / bitcoin blocksplit insurance on: March 20, 2013, 03:14:35 AM

I would like to know other's thoughts on having insurance in the event of block splits. The software glitch between mining versions required centralized guidance to recommend which block series to continue with, something that people would have preferred the network to figure out on its own. Within those 30 minutes the price of bitcoin fell on Mt Gox over 20%, and merchants were advised not to take any transactions until this was solved.

This makes me imagine a world where transacting in bitcoins is highly liquid, but occasionally having to wait 30 minutes at a store front due to some network emergency where transactions cannot be validated. As if it was a modern reality of moving away from fiat.

Instead, what if there was blocksplit insurance. Where merchants and miners may have made contributions to a block chain but found out later that they were on the "wrong chain" and that major pools had democratically decided to use a different chain rendering some merchants and miner's transactions obsolete. With blocksplit insurance they would still be compensated for the value of those transactions.

This would enable merchants and miners to have peace of mind. It would also enable people to not have to wait for transaction confirmations to complete a purchase, something that some people voluntarily do and others voluntarily do not, due to the riskyness of not being able to complete a transaction. Especially given the competition in which other cryptocurrency transactions can be verified faster

This kind of insurance would be better than hedging with derivatives since futures and options do not account for block splits, only change in price.

Sorry if the terms I use are not the ones everyone else uses, but I think the context is clear.

Does this seem like something useful?
12  Other / Beginners & Help / how much does it take to move bitcoin bid on: September 05, 2011, 06:04:23 PM
Hello, since bitcoins are currently unregulated I can freely ask this

How much money does it take to move the bitcoin bid and ask. If I threw $1,000,000 at the buy side will bitcoin go up $5 starting a rally?

Similarly if I threw $1,000,000 on the [short] sell side will bitcoin drop to $1 making a nice entry point. Would I even be able to cover?

Thoughts appreciated thanks
13  Other / Beginners & Help / bitcoin practicality threshold on: September 05, 2011, 04:58:23 AM
Hello, I looked at some bitcoin only services and saw that a decreasing value in bitcoins made their service no longer worth it

what is the magic value for bitcoin to current USD for things to be worth it. btc$15 ? btc$20 ? thanks

14  Other / Beginners & Help / How come everyone that points of bitcoin weakness are called trolls on: August 27, 2011, 02:29:42 PM
Okay guys, this is intended to be a rational market thread.

How come everyone that points out bitcoin weaknesses are called trolls? I mean I have seen some entirely well thought out posts simply showing supply/demand based cons of bitcoin (sorry, no citations for this thread) but the first reply is always a reference to the OP being a troll

EVERYONE in here long at Bitcoin/USD $30 and absorbing a huge paper loss? The only reason I can come up with for this kind of behavior is that people are married to their speculative positions

anyway, hoping someone can explain the mentality.  I can accept flaws in investments in slightly more rational markets (with more short selling participants) ie. I've made more money shorting gold than buying it just because I know it is mostly retail traders and they are stupid, I shorted BP for 30 days,  shorted AIG, Bank of America, etc etc.  But I don't really talk to people when I decide that there is something negative about the current price of an asset, I just do, yet here when I see people talking about rational negative qualities about the bitcoin asset, they are automatically trolls

I understand that in the general public (or perhaps tech. community), people DO have a negative opinion of bitcoin, but here I see very well thought out discussions... so please explain how these people are so easily villified
15  Other / Beginners & Help / A Bitcoin future seems like massive poverty! on: July 10, 2011, 01:25:47 AM
Given that there will only be 21 million bitcoins in existence, with an untold number of them disappearing into the void and unrecoverable, I feel like this utopian acceptance is a march toward a great poverty!

Now, granted - bitcoins are very easily divisible to smaller denominations, and 1 BTC could easily turn into a cherishable value.

I just feel like 21 million in existence with no recourse for missing bitcoins presents a problem.

16  Other / Beginners & Help / Trade "Difficulty" futures on: July 09, 2011, 07:22:08 PM
Hello, I would like to trade bitcoin difficulty futures, or any other derivative of bitcoins

17  Other / Beginners & Help / Easy to short bitcoins? on: July 09, 2011, 07:19:36 PM
Hello, I would like to periodically short bitcoins

or possibly, short the right to short bitcoins. I like derivatives.

Is there any shorting on the bitcoin exchanges, or do you just reverse the direction of your BTC/Currency of choice trade?
18  Other / Beginners & Help / Bitcoin Exchange Bid/Ask Spreads on: July 09, 2011, 06:51:32 PM
Hello, how are the bitcoin exchange bid/ask spreads?

Are the spreads tight or broad?

I've looked at a few charts and it seems bitcoins are pretty liquid right now, but examples and experience is welcome.
19  Other / Beginners & Help / 3 Radeon 6990, need Power Supply and proper CPU on: June 16, 2011, 04:09:49 AM
Hello, from my understanding, the bitcoin miners will allocate 1 core for each GPU

now given that each Radeon 6990 is two GPU's each, what should I expect (assume NO crossfire)

would A) with 3 Radeon 6990's attached to the system, only 3 cores of my quad-core CPU will be used
would B) with 3 Radeon 6990's attached to the system, it would be preferable to have 6 cores as all of my cores would be used

What if I had two CPU's on this motherboard Smiley

I can use a 1600W power supply, but I fear this may be oversaturated too (but I'm open to underclocking the CPUs)
