2  Local / Alt Coins (India) / Monero (private digital cash) exchanges in India? on: November 22, 2015, 05:05:54 PM
Monero (XMR) is more private than Bitcoin, because it uses an opaque ledger instead of a transparent ledger. It is impossible to link or trace Monero transactions. Paper cash transactions also cannot be linked or traced. Therefore, Monero is more "cash-like" than Bitcoin.

Since cash is so commonly used in India, Bitcoin's transparency may be a barrier to adoption. People don't want to give up their privacy. They may be more willing to use a digital cash that guarantees privacy.

Are any of the exchanges in India offering to buy or sell Monero? In the US, the main Monero exchanges are: http://poloniex.com and http://bittrex.com

Read more about Monero at: https://getmonero.org or https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=583449.0

There is also an active online discussion at: http://reddit.com/r/monero

I will send a small amount of Monero to you if you send me a private message with your Monero address.

3  Economy / Speculation / How will Ethereum's launch affect BTC's price? on: July 28, 2015, 02:15:06 PM
Apparently they are set to launch their blockchain this Thursday: https://blog.ethereum.org/2015/07/27/final-steps/ .
4  Bitcoin / Electrum / Is it possible to install Electrum on OS X using "brew install electrum"? on: October 06, 2014, 10:55:19 PM
I'd like to install the latest developer version (supporting Trezor) and build from source.
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Can your face serve as your Bitcoin address? on: January 11, 2014, 09:34:16 PM
Also posted to Reddit:

Given advances in facial recognition software, could you register your face with a trusted "face registrar" such that it is associated with a Bitcoin address (or sequence of addresses based on a seed) of your choosing? Then we could be paid by anyone who can take a photo of us. . .

This is a special case of a more general question of whether an image (or an audio recording) of an arbitrary object can be reliably associated with a sequence of Bitcoin addresses, such that facsimiles (such as photos or re-recordings) of the same object can be submitted to the registrar to determine their Bitcoin address.
This would allow payment for any visual or audio works of art without requiring the artist to reveal their identity.

Comments?
6  Local / India / Has anyone looked into installing a Lamassu Bitcoin vending machine in India? on: January 05, 2014, 07:41:17 PM
It seems like having only the "purchasing bitcoin" option available would make it less risky to operate than having it dispense both cash and bitcoin.
7  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Is it possible yet to send bitcoin with a defineable time (or block #) delay? on: December 29, 2013, 10:42:40 PM
I would like to gift bitcoin to friends/family without being able to rescind the gift but with them having no access to the bitcoin until it is has fully appreciated (ten years, let's say).

Can I do this with a bitcoin transaction or does it require a trusted third party to take custody of the bitcoin?
8  Economy / Trading Discussion / Why can't bitcoin be traded on forex exchanges? on: October 23, 2013, 03:18:23 PM
As far as I know there are no forex exchanges that exchange bitcoin for fiat. Why is that? Are there laws preventing them from trading bitcoin?
9  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-05-03: Bitcoin vs Ben Bernanke (WSJ interview with Gavin) on: May 03, 2013, 10:20:33 PM
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323809304578429142650304564.html

Nothing new to most readers of bitcointalk, but a nice piece on Gavin that portrays Bitcoin in a positive light.

12  Other / Beginners & Help / Bitcoin Blog Comment Tip Plugin Idea on: October 19, 2012, 03:16:39 AM
I just saw this in one of the non-Newbie threads: http://www.reddit.com/r/test/comments/11iby2/bitcointip_tip_redditors_with_bitcoin/

It would be amazing if someone would create plugins for Wordpress and Blogger and other popular blogging software so that readers could easily tip the authors of individual posts or individual comments. The system should allow tipping of small amounts of bitcoin and it should be anonymous or pseudonymous.

Does something like this already exist for tipping blog commentators?
