Discuss? I agree 100% on what is being exposed here, though it is still needed.(For people who don't have perfectly working parts)
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin Books/Publications on: July 24, 2011, 08:49:00 PM
While doing my normal search for news I toppled with this:

Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System [Illustrated] [Kindle Edition]
By Satoshi Nakamoto

What You Need To Know About Bitcoins [Kindle Edition]
By Marcos Sausilitos

Bitcoin Island (Coining The Classics) [Kindle Edition]
By R Stephenson (Author), Frank Manna (Author), Chris Stave (Editor)

Can anyoen confirm it was satoshi who published the first one and if so if it is available for Bitcoins?

Also, a review of the others would be great.

Feel free to post any professionally made book/publication here.

Watching the video first is recommended.
Information wants to be free...

This is a thread dedicated to the recent policy censoring links to webservices regarding access to restricted substances and other "quasi-legal/illegal" products/information. While I agree that discussion and trading must be kept off site due to legal issues it would represent in the USA where the server is hosted, I do feel a link/reference to other sites which do not present this issue should be welcomed and encourage. For which we are practicing one of the worst censorship, for which it is self-censorship what we see. The sole mention of such a service, the discussion or criticism, or even the organization of such a service as of what Black Market [Reloaded] and The Silk Road represent is not illegal or unethical in itself. Should we not actually remove this restriction we would end worst than South Park 201(Season 14, Episode 6)[]

So basically, please leave a signature for the petition to:
-Abolish censorship of links to quasi-legal services(Black Market [Reloaded]/The Silk Road)
-Having a clear list of known sites to avoid misleading links and Man in The Middle attacks

Just looked at MtGox after their record volume today.

8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Official Client Distribution Resiliance Effort on: June 09, 2011, 09:54:27 PM
Since we are getting a lot of media, I prepared a torrent with the latest release for all released binaries - Windows, Windows(Zip), Mac OSX, Linux(UNIX) - in TPB. It also includes the sources and I encourage everyone to compile if they know how to.

Please help seeding and passing around. This will ensure new users can still easily get the client.

10  Economy / Economics / How many BTC do you have? Poll on adoption rate on: June 08, 2011, 03:15:03 PM
The objective is to determine the adoption rate. I want to get the approximate number of current users. For this I will get the average of BTC per person. Your submission is anonymous. Please be honest.

Everyone is welcomed to post the calculations after they voted.

13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Faucet on: June 06, 2011, 11:55:33 PM
The faucet(s) have been running dry lately, I know, as per individual posts, that some individuals here have possession of vast amounts of BTC and would like to invite them to collaborate in the measure they feel appropriate to the well being of the faucet(s). For which it is the main entry point for new users to test it and realize the benefits.

In good faith, fabianhjr

How does Bitcoin fit in?
15  Bitcoin / Project Development / Mexican School Bitcoin Promotion Faucet on: June 06, 2011, 06:36:18 PM
I have been acting as a small faucet for people I know, giving away 0.10 BTC. However, I am starting to dry out and would like to ask the help from the community. Right now I am at my school and would like to give 0.05 away to each student or staff that installs the client. Additionally I have been pushing for a change in the way finances are handled on campus. Right now we use some paper money representing x amount of MXN that can only be used on-campus.

Help can be sent to [dead]

PS: Comments of support or constructive criticism welcomed.

Como muchos podrían estar enterados hay una manifestación pacifica para el cambio. Bitcoin es uno de esos cambios que los beneficiara. Cualquier información adicional a los medios de comunicación y a la plataforma oficial son apreciados. Les he invitado a chequear el sistema y varios podrían estar aquí. Cualquier duda o comunicado del movimiento puede ser hecha aquí. Como siempre les apoyamos para el exito desde cualquier parte del mundo que nos ubicamos, en mi caso Mexico. Si ponen un enlace para donaciones de seguro reciben apoyo!

20  Bitcoin / Project Development / Decentralize Financial Institutions - Part 1, Planning on: May 03, 2011, 12:36:20 AM
A purely peer-to-peer version of financial institutions would allow financial
services to be provided directly from one party to another without. This coupled
with Satoshi's Bitcoin enhances one's freedom in the world and allows for far
more than has been possible up to now. The network is intended to decentralize
the following, but not limited to, services: banks, insurance, stock exchanges,
and brokerage. This whole system revolves around the concept of "I owe you".

It is based on a Web-of-Trust and to fight some of the disadvantages I purpose
the data to be divided in a more manageable form. To ensure data availability
and manageability I purpose the data to be divided  and distributed using the
available Distributed hash Table technology already being used in distributed
protocols such as BitTorrent.

-3 Levels of trust: "I might trust you, though I will manually check your coms", "I trust you", and "I trust you and those you trust". Additionally if a connection is not trusted it is plainly ignored.
-Each node can choose his preferred algorithm and bitlength. The key and related info will be stored in a Distributed Hash Table and a similar address convention to Bitcoin will be used.(RFC: This is the chance to add more goodies)
-A credit line would need to be established. Trust from one to another does not infer the trust from another to one.
-Payer is the only one that must sign a contract in order to owe "something" to "somebody".
-All communications from a non-trusted peer are simply ignored.
-If a peer, ex a payment gateway*, needs a tremendous amount of bandwidth it should be requested. *A payment gateway you trust would be able to receive a payment ending up he owing you "x" amount that you can use in your favour by sending payments trough him to a peer in another location. This allows you to send payments even if not globally trusted.
-Contracts, by instance IOUs, can be created by peers. This contracts are stored in an individual DHT and have the option to leave fields for payers and payees. An example is below:
"legal":"Legalize Here:\n Simple IOU \n I , $payer$, agree to pay the amount of $amount$ of $type$ to $payee$",
"layman":"I owe $amount$ $type$ to $payee$"
-Intermediaries would route the payment between unkown and directly untrusted parties. Though, their consent is not needed as their total credit will be unaffected.
-All contracts and trust between peers would be public knowledge. Contracts signed between parties would be stores in a distributed hash table with a time-stamp.(Anonymity issue? Workarounds?)

This is just a proposal and a request for comments. If I haven't considered an issue please point it out. Yes, this is based on Ripple. It is slightly different in the sense that it takes care of more than credit and it is decentralized completely. This would help with the recent MtGox attacks and ensure the financial integrity of Bitcoin. I suggest this software to be called OurFinances, however suggestions are appreciated.
