1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Yay or Nay to Increasing Block Size to 20mb? on: May 06, 2015, 01:52:48 PM
Obviously this is hardly a scientific poll or in any way indicative, but just curious of the result even if it is gamed.

And, please don't game it Smiley  This is an important issue and everyone has the right to their opinion. We all would benefit by seeing what most people think and the benefits from gaming it would be very much 0.

Nice article:

I hear he will be there
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Finally, MT Gox database data linked to blockchain addresses on: May 13, 2014, 10:53:05 PM
"As a step in determining what happened to the bitcoin inside Mt. Gox, we have completed preliminary identification of the transfers of bitcoin on the blockchain which correspond to the transfers given in the leaked btc_xfer_report.csv file.

The algorithm used was able to identify a single corresponding transaction on the blockchain for 50% of deposits, corresponding to 77% of all bitcoin deposited at Mt. Gox since March 2011. For withdrawals, the algorithm identified 36% of transactions, corresponding to 75% of all bitcoin withdrawals over the same time period.

These identifications are the first steps in determining which bitcoin addresses may contain both hot and cold wallet storage of bitcoin for Mt. Gox. There is more work to be done, including using the identified transactions to trace internal flows of bitcoin based on the leaked Mt. Gox source code and identifying additional transactions to complete the record.

Further information is available at If you can assist this effort, please join us there."
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / The Bitcoin Foundation Must Remove Satoshi as Founder on: May 09, 2014, 02:32:43 PM
Satoshi Nakamoto was not a founder of the bitcoin foundation. It  is highly unethical for him to be listed as a founder. It is not an honorary title. Satoshi created a decentralised system. He would hate the foundation's centralisation.

Now that a highly controversial figure has been elected to the board I think it is imperative that the foundation stops claiming legitimacy by stating that Satoshi was in any way a founder or in any way approved of that rotten centalisation.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Can we have a Bitcoin but with 1-2% constant inflation and slower halving? on: April 18, 2014, 01:02:03 PM
Bitcoin is too deflationary which makes it a perfect store of value as primary use and currency as secondary use.

A 2% inflation coin would be a perfect currency primarily which may eventually even replace national currencies. 

Doge is not % inflationary. It has a constant addition of 5 billion coins which means that the inflationary percentage of the market cap gradually goes down to eventually become deflationary.

A constant % on the other hand would be a 1-2% of the market cap every year forever onwards.

This is very different from the fed simply printing money etc. The 1-2% covers losses and accounts for a growing economy so in real terms it is almost 0% inflation or deflation. Thus as close to a neutral currency as possible.

If someone can please code this then I think we would have a winner currency to supplement the winner store of value that is bitcoin.
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Why is post that Mark Karpels is wanted by US gov delegated to service discussio on: April 15, 2014, 10:54:53 PM
What's the US gov wanting an ex-ceo of a bitcoin exchange got to do with service discussion?

MT Gox is no longer providing a service and the above news is of general interest I think?
8  Economy / Service Discussion / The US government has ordered MT Gox CEO to go to US on: April 15, 2014, 07:58:23 PM
FinCen has ordered Mark Karpeles to go to Washington on the 18th of April:

"The FinCEN Subpoena requires Karpeles to appear and provide testimony in Washington, D.C. on April 18, 2014 – the day after the scheduled Bankruptcy Deposition of Karpeles in Dallas. The FinCEN Subpoena did not attach a document request and did not specify topics for discussion."
9  Economy / Service Discussion / MT Gox has at Least Another 21,000 Bitcoins on: March 31, 2014, 05:38:48 PM

On top of the 202k he told the court is all he had
10  Economy / Service Discussion / Gox to Announce they found 670,000 btc? on: March 25, 2014, 05:44:14 PM

And is blockchain acquiring them? Head of blockchain development rumour has it is in Tokyo together with Roger Ver. An article on the 12th of March stated that blockchain is to announce the biggest acquisition yet in two weeks, so by this Thursday.

Roger Ver tweeted on the 10th of March:

"I'm not in Japan at the moment. I'm just following the reddit updates like everyone else, hoping not to be goxed again..."

What does he mean goxed again, how can he be goxed again?

On the 14th of March he tweeted:

"I'm shocked that there aren't yet Bitcoin accepting locations listed in Macau, the gambling capital of the world! That's about to change!"

How is that about to change?

The draft states that gox is meant to move to singapore, or hong kong, or macau? - the las vegas of asia?

And of course draft says gox is meant to reopen April 1st.

Are we ladies and gents about to experience the greatest comeback in the history of bitcoins?

Edit: "Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising everytime we fall"

If the above is true it seems like it definitely was a gag order, but we probably won't officially be told until maybe it becomes irrelevant.

11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / To Bitstamp: Gox's coins are being sold on your exchange on: March 23, 2014, 02:08:14 PM

    Hello Nejc
    I'm writing to you because i have near-proof that the stolen MtGox coins
    are being transfered to your exchange. I would appreciate any information
    you can supply about this matter but i understand that legal restrictions
    may apply. In either case this is crucial information to you and i hope you
    will take the required actions. The following will be a rundown of the
    proof (which can be expanded upon).
    In the time Jed McCaleb owned MtGox there was a donation address listed in
    the left side:
    This address send coins in 2011 around the time the exchange changed owner
    to Mark Karpeles
    1EuMa <>
     -> 1FBiC<>
     -> 1B4AW<>
     -> 1Kq6s<>
     -> 1K66U<>
     -> 1pdMA<>
    These coins were split into blocks of 2-5k which were used as cold storage.
    The 1pdMA<>
    (plus the rest) didn't move until 2013-12-21 and 2014-02-05 as part of a
    huge movement of old coins following the same pattern. These coins are
    mapped in two spreadsheets
     and here<>
    ~300k coins.
    Two of the MtGox cold storage addresses moved as shown:
    1PNNF <>
     -> 1JFXQ<>
     -> 1DJoA<>
     -> 1PAzo<>
     -> 1HsUP<>
     -> 1KnPn<>
     -> 1PAzo<>
    I know that 1PAzo<>
    an address owned by Bitstamp and i assume that
     and 1KnPn<>
    are Bitstamp addresses used to receive coins from customers. This shows
    that the MtGox cold storage coins moved directly from cold storage to an
    unknown address and then to a Bitstamp address. There are an estimate of
    13500 coins moved to Bitstamp as of this moment.
    I'm looking forward to hearing from you and i will appreciate any
    information you may give me. It is of my interest to find the owner of
     and 1HsUP<>    <<<< Not my pastebin
12  Economy / Service Discussion / Gov Most Certainly Seized Gox’s Coins on: March 16, 2014, 02:00:16 PM

Oh, and, today, about an hour ago: "<MagicalTux> we are working on resuming service, can't say how soon it'll be"
