181  Economy / Exchanges / Virtual bitcoin debit cards in the US on: October 02, 2015, 03:01:53 AM
Are there any virtual bitcoin debit cards that I can get if I am in the US?
182  Other / Meta / how does posting work here (technical details)? on: October 01, 2015, 03:23:42 AM
I am writing an android app for this forum (thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1195830.0) and part of the app is actually creating and editing posts. Since bitcointalk doesn't have any api that I can use for posting, the app must scrape the forum pages and send the proper requests in order to do anything. However, I can't seem to figure out how the actual posting mechanism works. I have looked at page source, and I found that clicking the post button submits the form for the post and it has an attribute
Code:
onclick="return submitThisOnce(this)"
which I think is the function that actually does the posting. But my problem is that I can't actually figure out what that is doing, and thus I can't figure out what my app should be doing in order to submit a post.

185  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / help me understand the fee market on: September 04, 2015, 07:11:16 PM
So I have been following the recent block size limit discussions going on and one thing I noticed is that people say we shouldn't raise blocks to allow a fee market to develop. Another is that BIP 100 allows miners to continue to lower the block size limit in order to force a fee market.

From what I understand, the idea is that once there are enough transactions to fill blocks up completely and have a backlog, resulting in some transactions not being confirmed in the next block. Then, in order to get into the next block, transactions will begin to have higher fees.

While this might be good to increase fees slightly, I don't understand why people say that small block sizes will force a super competitive fee market. Wouldn't people just ditch Bitcoin and go to some other altcoin (like litecoin) instead of paying ridiculous fees? Why would miners (in the case of BIP 100) lower the block size limit to increase fees if it drives away people thus decreasing their earnings?

188  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Other big block BIP implementations on: August 19, 2015, 01:19:46 AM
So we have all heard of BitcoinXT which implements BIP 101. But are there other clients that implement the other proposals for larger blocks?

AFAIK these are the BIPs

Are there any known implementations for this besides BIP 101? Where can we find this code and is any of it ready for use?
189  Bitcoin / Project Development / Bitcointalk Account price estimator on: August 03, 2015, 09:59:06 PM
Update #6: Due to the new Cloudflare DDoS protection that has been implemented on the forum. the account statistics checking bot is unable to access the forum to get the relevant information. The site will be down indefinitely and a static webpage has been put in place informing as such.


Update #5: To avoid people from using the post quality quantifier here as proof that they have good post quality (because they usually don't and the quantifier is not accurate), I have removed it from the display and changed the character count to be higher.


Update #4: Website now has https and will force all users to use https. http will automatically be redirected to https.


Update #3: Website has new tokening system and fixed queuing system
There is a new update to the project!!

I have released a new version on Github and also live on the website. This new version has improvements to the queue system so it doesn't fail as it used to.

There is now a tokening system for the queue. When you submit a lookup request you will receive a token. You can then leave the page and browse as you wish. You can return later and enter the token to see your results. The only caveat is that results are kept for only 24 hours after the request was submitted.

Update #2: Website is up at http://www.bctalkaccountpricer.info/
My website is up and usable at http://www.bctalkaccountpricer.info/

The site is very simple, just enter the User ID and it will do everything for you. There is a queuing system in place to prevent the server from being IP banned by Bitcointalk. The site will let you know where you are in the queue and will automatically retrieve all of the information when it is your turn.

There are a few notable differences between the website version and the version on github:
  • Ads - The website has ads to help me support the site. I did not include the code for the ads in the github
  • IP wait times - The website will require you to wait 5 minutes before it will let you submit another request. This is to prevent DoS attacks on the site. The Github contains the code for this, but it is commented out.
  • Account bot password - In order for the website to work, an account is required to view the trust of members. The Github has a placeholder password THAT DOES NOT WORK while the website has the correct password.
If you have issue with any of the above, please let me know and see if we can fix the problem.

If you find any bugs in the website, please contact me here or using the issue tracker on Github.

Update #1: The code is now available to browse, fork, and download at https://github.com/achow101/BitcointalkAccountPricer

Hello All,

Today I am announcing a project that I have been working on recently. This project is a price estimator for Bitcointalk Forum Accounts. The algorithm for determining prices is based on recent prices of accounts here.
The algorithm is as follow:
Code:
0.0002[btc]/activity
0.0001[btc]/epa (extra potential activity)

epa = potential activity - activity

bp (base price) = 0.0002 * activity + 0.0001 * epa

final price = bp * pqm * tm

pqm (post quality multiplier) determined by ratio of good posts (>100 characters excluding quoted text) to bad posts (<100 characters excluding quotes) (whitespace is trimmed)
excellent post quality (90%) = 1.025 (+2.5%)
good (80%) = 1.0125 (+1.25%)
fair (70%) = 1.00 (+0%)
poor (50%) = -1.05 (-5%)
very poor (<50%) = -1.1 (-10%)

tm (trust multiplier)
positive light green trust = 1.10 (+10%)
positive dark green trust = 1.20 (+20%)
neutral trust = 1.00 (+0%)
negative trust = -0.15 (-85%)

The code will be written in Java because I know Java the best. It will be open source and published on Github, but not yet as it is not completely finished. There will also be a website that has the java applet on the webpage for anyone to calculate the price of any Bitcointalk Account.

Please let me know what you guys think of this and if I should change the algorithm in any way.

Disclaimer: This project is not definitive nor an entirely accurate representation of an account's sell price. While I strive to be as accurate and close to current market prices as possible, actual prices may vary.

If this has been helpful to you or you would like to support this project, please donate to 16mT7jrpkjnJBD7a3TM2awyxHub58H6r6Z.

Edit: Algo adjustments

191  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Who holds the alert keys? on: May 30, 2015, 09:08:36 PM
Does anyone have a list of all of the people that hold the alert key's private key? I know that Gavin and Satoshi both have it since Satoshi gave it to Gavin. Also, according to https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Alerts, theymos also has the key. Does anyone know who else has the alert key?

I'm asking this because of the possibility of Gavin using the alert key to abuse the alert system and broadcast to everyone that they need to switch to his fork. If other people hold the key, then this kind of abuse of the alert system can be mitigated because they can send out alerts which cancel Gavin's.
192  Bitcoin / Mining / Generate power from thermoelectric generator on a miner on: May 29, 2015, 12:19:12 AM
Would it be possible to use a Thermoelectric Generator, similar to what is used in space probes but instead on the cooling system of mining rigs, in order to produce electricity to reduce the cost of electricity? How effective would this be and would it have a significant impact on the electric bill?
