4  Economy / Goods / [WTB] Carton of Belmont Cigarettes - CANADIANS!! on: June 06, 2013, 03:46:20 AM
I can't find these anywhere here in the USA. I wish I would have gotten more when I was visiting Canada! I'm willing to do escrow and pay escrow fee/tip. I just need to know how much a carton costs plus shipping. I don't know where else to turn. I can't find them anywhere at all online.

Thanks guys. Grin

6  Economy / Securities / Would there be any interest in a GLBSE stock that invested in the US stock on: September 11, 2012, 04:42:47 AM
market?  Huh

Hello! My name is Gerard Manzanares and I have been a BTC miner since June of 2011. I'm 26 years old and I live in Texas.

I have an idea for a fund that would take BTC invested, convert it to USD and purchase dividend stocks with it. It would have montly or bi-monthly BTC dividends payout based on the stocks that were held with the funds. I would not seek capital gains with any of the stocks that were purchased in the fund.
I will list BTC to USD conversion from start to finish in

I have been trading in the stock market since 2008 and I have over 5 years of banking experience. I'm working on getting verified fully through GLBSE. I can't promise anything crazy like 1% a week (yes that's crazy), but I can estimate about ~10% a year.

Here is my model (all still an idea): Sell 1000 shares at 1 BTC per or 2000 shares at 0.5 BTC per or 4000 shares at 0.25 per. Once all shares have been sold, send the BTC to mt.gox to get it converted, then send that cash to dwolla. Then send it to my bank account from there and then to the brokerage account from there (a lot I know).

For this example, let's say BTC1 is worth $10(for simplicity). We can also estimate ~0.5% conversion fee. That leaves us with $9950. Then we transfer it to Dwolla and from dwolla which costs $0.50 total. $9949.50 is what ends up in the brokerage account.

Let's say a dividend is paid of $100(to be simple). 25% goes to me because of my tax bracket. I currently fall into the 25% tax bracket (for 2012)with my current income level (yes I have to pay taxes... I'm still working!) 25% would get reinvested and the 50% would be paid back as dividends. In this case, $50. $50 goes to my bank account, then to Dwolla, then to mt.gox (costs $0.50) $49.50 gets converted to BTC at $10 per BTC (to be simple) and I end up with 4.95 BTC. That then goes to GLBSE and gets divided up among shareholders. BTC0.00495 per share would be given to 1000 shares. 0.495% ROI(in this example)

**I will always own 5% as an operating cost.

**The tax bracket will change each year. I will provide you with what tax category I fall into so that we may better assess the situation.

**At least 50% of USD dividends will be converted to BTC and paid as GLBSE dividends.

**USA taxes are "expected" to increase in 2013. Mine will increase to 28% if I maintain my current income level.

**Please remember, this is not a "get rich quick" scheme. This is a chance for you to buy US stock using your hard earned BTC... If all goes well that is.

**If this takes off, I will upload account statements and show where all of the money goes.

I welcome any feedback and questions! Feel free to bombard me with them. I will try my best to take my time and answer each one. I will ignore any "aggressive" comments. Please feel free to offer suggestions as well if what I've typed doesn't sound right.
7  Economy / Services / Looking for someone to write my papers! (College homework) on: August 11, 2012, 06:11:20 PM
That's right, I'm lazy and busy all at the same time. I realize I need to get college over with, but lack ALL motivation to do it. They are mostly business classes. I would prefer someone that's either in college or graduated, HOWEVER I realize some high school students are even smarter than I am, so I'm willing to take your work into consideration as well. Trading feedback in my signature.

I was thinking something along the lines of 1 BTC per paper or like 0.25 BTC per page. It would just depend on the work.

I also would prefer English native speakers as I wouldn't want silly grammar to be an issue. If you want to do a paper or if you want to work with me all the way through, we can draw up a contract if you'd like. I'd be happy with someone writing my papers and me taking my tests!

If interested, do not hesitate to contact me. Ask any questions you please.

**Payment**

I accept BTC, NMC,(willing to try all other alt coins) Paypal (PP verified), & Dwolla

I'm willing to test out accepting alt-coins with you if you're willing to be patient with me. I use Vircurex and I figured that I could give you my address that is generated from Vircurex, then check the rate of conversion to BTC. :0)

I personally have one on the back of my phone case. It's great for the community and fans. Also a great idea if you're organizing a local meet-up or going to one!

**I have a friend that does graphics design, so please contact me if you need any special requests. We are also working together on some custom bitcoin logos aside from the standard ones you see listed here.**

Also, please reply with feedback!!!! I would like to know if you think this is a bad idea... or good idea... Whatever it is, just let me know!
10  Economy / Currency exchange / WTB BTC for $200 dwolla on: July 13, 2012, 10:46:54 PM
I am still under my 30 day deposit limit and I feel like the money is being wasted in my Dwolla account...


Please help! Trusted sellers, and I send money first. Non-trusted and you send BTC first.

Thanks in advanced.

12  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Relatively n00b miner here wanting to make the big switch to FPGA on: July 02, 2012, 06:08:27 PM
Hello all! :0)

Can anyone recommend some things about mining using FPGA boards?

I would like to know what OS is most "energy efficient" to idle with and if I was to build a PC to "house" this, what would I be looking at buying? Unless I'm mistaken, a cheap dual core processor would be more than enough for "just a PC".

Any links to guides appreciated!

Also, if you can link me to some boards that are worth buying I would be interested in checking them out.
13  Bitcoin / Mining / What happened to all of the coins in old"lost" wallets? on: June 27, 2012, 11:23:04 PM
Back when BTC was young, I know I had an old wallet on an old computer and didn't backup/save anything. The BTC payouts were much larger years ago and I'm sure this scenario happened to people with "large" BTC wallets.

Just curious...  Roll Eyes
