1  Economy / Digital goods / [WTB] Real USA/UK/Canada phone number method on: May 12, 2017, 09:13:50 PM
I am looking for a way to obtain real USA/UK/Canada phone numbers to receive activation codes on them.

These numbers need to show up as "mobile" in the number type field here:

I will pay $30 for a method via bitify (unless you are a Senior or higher member).
2  Economy / Speculation / Should i allocate 100% of my savings to bitcoin ? on: January 19, 2013, 09:16:08 PM
A while ago i did a publicly feeded trade, sold bitcoins as a result of this poll

If i had done no trades i would been better off lol. I ended up liquidating about 50% of my holdings. But it was still quite entertaning to just trust the decentralized forum consensus.

This time around regarless of shortterm overbought technicals im really tempted to move all my savings to bitcoin, mainly because of this:

Should i, or should i not ? please post whatever you find most convincing.
Once again i'll submit to whatever the poll tells me to. ie: If 75% say yes it means i'll allocate 75% of my avail resources to bitcoin.
3  Economy / Speculation / Major support/resistance which will hit first ? on: October 29, 2012, 05:46:59 PM
Hello speculatificators Smiley

I've been off from bitcoin trading for a while, but the current situation seems to offer a rather unique trading opportunity.

I have studied the charts and fundamentals a lot lately, and in the end i can't make up my own mind. I believe the likelyhood of both is 50/50, what do you think ?
4  Other / Off-topic / Stevia and Bitcoin, the two most controversial topics. Which is the 3rd ? on: June 30, 2011, 10:36:46 PM
Hello Bitcoiners,

A while before i discovered bitcoin i was much engaged in the "superfoods" stuff, which naturally involved me in Stevia (for those of you unaware its the only 100% natural sweetener apart from sugar which does not have the side effects of sugar). Just google it and you shall be amazed, i really fell in love with it the day i discovered it the same way i did with bitcoin.

Here's my 1 million dollar question. What is that 3rd thing, that has similar properties ? Reason i ask you, i have decided to only invest my bitcoin income 100% consciously, i plan to invest part of (my bitcoin income) in stevia stocks and the other parts in other technologies/ideas that shine for same reason (they are controversial, they challenge the status quo, and they are obviously the future).

Tell me what it is i have overseen!
5  Other / Meta / Britcoin has mysterious darkorders ? on: June 22, 2011, 10:37:12 PM
Jun 22, 2011, 22:23:01   10.20410   0.48   
Jun 22, 2011, 22:14:01   5000.00000   0.00   
Jun 22, 2011, 22:13:02   500.00000   0.01   
Jun 22, 2011, 22:03:01   10.20410   0.01

How does it go from 10.20 directly to 500 without clearing the other orders in between ? I noticed similar pattern last few days also, it went from 9.x to 0.25 without clearing anything in between and later same day it jumped to >100.

What am i missing ?
6  Economy / Trading Discussion / Panic deficit on: June 15, 2011, 11:34:14 AM
This is an interesting situation, there seems to be a panic deficit, something no money can buy.

All technical indicators show a "need" for a correction. For example s3052's:

That's in addition to the many roumors of hacked accounts, Buttsec lulzing the exchanges security and what not.

Where are you mr. Panic ? Volume is low, we're awaiting you Wink
7  Other / Obsolete (buying) / [HIRING] - FLASH based casino engine on: June 10, 2011, 11:00:51 AM
I'm looking for an experienced flash developer to create a site similar to this:

GFX (texturing), and SFX is not needed as i have someone who can take care of that, what i'm looking for is a "module based" engine that with proper texturing can give a real 3d casino feeling, can be highly customized, and obviously is secure, with instant bitcoin deposit/withdraw.

Please PM me with a quote, and some background/references. Can pay in BTC or USD, or both.
8  Bitcoin / Mining / Mining Insurance Contract ? on: June 09, 2011, 12:02:29 PM
I been reading a lot mixed opinions lately about both the sustainability of the BTC price, as-well as about forecasts of growth in difficulty is a great concern for you miners or potential miners. And as much as we do have its neither completely finished nor is it easy to use unless you have some experience with derivatives.

There seems to be a demand for a more "mainstream" way to guarantee that you have a profitable mining future.

To put it in simple terms, here's what i'm planning to offer (using flat example amounts for sake of simplicity):

- Let's say your current mining rig(s) push 10BTC a day
- Your operating expense requires a price of at least 10$ / BTC for your mining to remain profitable.

Now you wanna insure your mining operation to remain profitable for next 30 days. For that you pay me 10% of your current mining output (or 1BTC) a day, for as many days as you want to insure. Let's say now that you want an insurance for next 30 days to be profitable for you, that would then cost you 30BTC (or 30x1BTC). Now if during any of those days the price falls to below 10BTC i'd pay you the difference, in example:

- On your 2nd day after you signed the insurance, mtgox crashes to 5$/BTC, and you had prepaid for a 30 day insurance. For each of those 29 days i'd then pay you the BTC equivalent of $5 a day. If the price falls further down i'd endup paying you more, or if it recovers to $10 or above the insurance payout would then halt (until/if it falls again below $10).

Is this something that could be interesting for you ? Would you not agree that if you could get a guaranteed future price for your mining you'd dare to expand your mining operation ?

Please leave your feedback either here or in PM.

and PS: the numbers i use above are just examples.
9  Economy / Trading Discussion / Renting mining contracts and taxes ? on: June 07, 2011, 07:44:19 PM
A quick straight forward question about renting mining boxes and cashing out only cost at contract expiration to renew the mining box contract.

I live in a country that like most have Capital Gains/Other Income as a seperate income field on my tax report, i do not have a registered company.

Normally when i reported my virtual currency gains, it would come from same source as i paid to, and therefore i could "nullify" my tax by simply not withdrawing more than principal for same fiscal year, however i have now rented a box that mines coins.
Is it possible for me to report the "renting of a mining box" as if it was an outright purchase of bitcoins ? (i know its possible to not report at all, but that's not what i'm looking for, is it LEGAL for me to do it that way)

Just so it's all clear and easy to understand my question, here's what i'm planning to do:

I prepay 400 for 30days, during those 30days i regularly withdraw from bitcoin exchanges an amount UPTO 400 only to renew the contract. So my cashflow balance here is 0 and if i were a co this should be perfectly legal to claim is a nonincome set of transactions relating to same invenstment. But is it viewed same way when i'm a persion and not a co ? Or can they claim i purchased a totally unreleated service for the 400 and claim i made a capital gain on 400 ?

Anybody who has experience with renting miningboxes or similar, got a clue ?

PS: And please with all due respect, no trolling or discussion about politics, neocon, neoliberal, keynesianism, and wtfnot, there is a poltics section for that, Im just looking for a straight answer or directions.
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Why the current bitcoin economy is not sustainable on: June 06, 2011, 10:38:50 AM
I had read a lot of places the following sentence: There is no commission (for now), so you can trade away for free.
There also used to be no commission at mtgox. Same is true for that bitcoin poker site. GUYS LISTEN!

I have a feeling that quiet a lot of bitcoin based businesses set up with the idea that there can be no writedowns. Charging a small fee is not immoral! I have run a high payout online casino in the past, infact one of the absolute highest paying ones, and we did have to deal with writedowns, after writedowns and promotions we were often left with just 1-2%. You have to escape that fantastic nonprofit economy and realize that any business nomatter how simple comes at a risk and that risk is not unjustfiable to price accordingly!

For us to have a sustainable bitcoin economy the businesses themfself must be sustainable.

Apart from running an online casino i have over 4 years of experience as purchasing manger for a major european electronics retailer, yes i love low profit margin so the enduser gets most for his $$ to products, but guys please consider this warning seriously. I know most of you have your first business in bitcoins, it isnt immoral to charge a fee its worse if you default on no fees than to break even on low fees.
