21  Economy / Service Discussion / How many bitcoin related companies went public already? on: May 02, 2013, 08:31:31 AM
Bitcoin has been changing the world drastically while almost silently.

The way of a company going to public is altered already. You guys knew already that satoshidice is public through mpex.co, and investors are enjoying a nice profit.

While kickstarter.com is shortening the course of a project from idea to products, bitcoin is drastically abridging the process of a company from startup to listed one. A proven profiting bitcoin related company needs no tedious course of exchanging ideas and discussing or debating on the future with funders, say, angels, the first round, the second round, the third round of vc, pe, and finally going public.

You have an idea, then you should do it. By profiting, you prove your idea is viable. Then, you can simply sell some of your bonds to the public. It's intrinsically natural for business related to bitcoin, since every transaction you made is public, albeit anonymous.

The most popular public bitcoin related companies that I knew of are:

satoshidice.com
bitbet.us

and I know a new company, crypto.pm just sold out their 40% bonds in the last few days.

Could you help me make a complete list of "public companies in bitcoinica"? thank you!

24  Economy / Marketplace / What's ideal to buy & sell with bitcoin? on: April 27, 2013, 04:07:57 AM
While some always question whether bitcoin is suitable to buy some necessities such as foods or other goods, I believe bitcoin has long been buying/selling the most essential goods in the world, currencies, including Dollars, Pounds, Yens... by which perhaps anything can be bought.

However, the most suitable goods traded with bitcion?

I do think the best things we can buy and sell with bitcoin are virtual goods and services, such as...

  • video files
  • ebooks
  • online casino chips
  • game currencies
  • membership of online services

pls give me more brainstorming, to add more possibilities...
25  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Is MLM ideal for bitcoin? on: April 24, 2013, 02:11:31 PM

26  Bitcoin / Project Development / How to build a reliable BTC Charity Platform? on: April 22, 2013, 07:45:33 AM
I think bitcoin is ideal for charity. But there're many predicaments.

First of all, how to prevent others modify bitcoin receiving address when reposting? (it happened when I called for "help lushan donation" https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=181336.0 )

Secondly, in most cases, charity fund has to be exchanged into a specific currency (other than virtual currency such as BTC or LR) to put into use. How to determine the exchange rate?

Thirdly, what should be the criterion to verify a charity not a scam?

Any suggestions? please help me.

A powerful earthquake jolted China's Sichuan province Saturday near where a devastating quake struck five years ago, killing at least 70 people and leaving more than 2,000 hurt, prompting worries the death toll will climb.

I'm an early user of Bitcoin (since 2011, not that early...), and I have been supporting bitcoin culture openly in China from the very beginning.
My blog is lixiaolai.com, (older archive was moved to wordpress.lixiaolai.com). Here's my first post on Bitcoin in May, 23, 2011:

此物一出天下反 (it was born to subvert)http://wordpress.lixiaolai.com/archives/10589.html

I'm calling for a BTC donation to help lushan earthquake refugees ...

HELP LUSHAN!

I have a good public reputation in China online community, since I'm a famous teacher, and a writer of several popular books, and financially independent.

This is the donation receiving address (a new wallet created):

15EhGBC8JBBVDKQ9yp1AqCb1xnzQLk6QHX

anyone can see donation records here: http://blockchain.info/fb/15ehgb

... and after going back to beijing (I'm on a short trip in Nanjing) tomorrow night, I'll launch a website for donation as soon as possible, and keep every expense updated online.

Thank you all, I'll keep you posted.

Any suggestion? please help me!

2013.4.20, 18:49

for Chinese BTC users: Do NOT buy BTC from any exchange center in China, since the price is relatively high. If you don't have any BTC, please donate money through other means.
中国BTC用户: 请不要在国内任何交易中心购买比特币作为捐款,因为国内交易所的价格溢价过高。如果你没有比特币,请使用其它方式捐款。除了我们之外,还有很多其它渠道捐款。

Since China is of a country with restrict financial regulation (it is not allowed to sell/exchange "virtual currency" into RMB without specific license), I originally planned use my own RMB deposit.

However, one of my friend proposed a workaround:

Quote
you can organize a charity auction...

and instantly, another friend proposed that he could forge 3D printed "coins" as auction targets...

It seems a nice solution, since by such a manner, the donation could be amplified...

any more suggestions?

This is the first time I organize a charity donation.
这是我第一次组织慈善募捐。

I hereby promise that all funds will be spent on rehabilitation of lushan.
我在此保证,所有的善款都用于芦山灾后重建。

No fund will be spent on alleged charity management, such as travelling tickets, hotel rooms, etc. I’ll personally cover such costs.
绝无任何款项用于所谓的善款管理,诸如交通费用,住宿费用等等。我将独自承担此类开销。

I will not spend any fund directly, since I’m not a professional in such an area. I’ll find a professional and trustable individual or organization (NOT including Red Cross of China), and have them take over the fund spending.
因为我并非此领域里的专家,所以我绝不会直接花费这些善款。我将找到一个值得信赖的个人或者机构(绝不可能是中国红十字会),将善款交由他们处理。

Private charity donation is not as simple and easy as imagined in China. Please keep patient.
私人慈善募捐在中国并非想象得那么简单和容易。请务必保持耐心。

The reasons why I chose Bitcoin as donation currency is:
我选择比特币作为募捐工具的理由是:

Bitcoin is ideal for international donation, since bitcoin transactions is faster, and less troublesome than that of any “real currency”.
比特币是理想的国际捐赠工具,因为它的“转账”非常快,相比任何“真实货币”来说,更少麻烦。


I’ll further organize private/public auction meetings with physically 3D printed BITCOIN (tokens of remembrance) as auction targets, by which we could amplify the amount of funds.
我将进一步组织私下的以及公开的拍卖会,将募集到的比特币通过3D打印方式制作成纪念品,进行拍卖,以便进一步放大募集金额。

In case the auction is not successful, I’ll use my personal RMB deposit to cash the funds out.
万一拍卖会并不成功,我将用自己的人民币存款将那些比特币折现。

I hereby promise the exchange rate of BTC from donation is set to the highest price (MtGox USD) within the period of donation.
我在此保证,最终折现汇率将以捐款活动期间最高汇率(MtGox USD)计算。

As of this editing time, 22.92700228 BTC received, 71 transactions of donations. THANK YOU ALL.

29  Local / 中文 (Chinese) / 动荡的2013年4月份 on: April 11, 2013, 04:35:40 AM
2013年4月1日,比特币冲破100美元……一路超过200美元之后,真正的动荡开始了。

4月11日,比特币冲到最高260美元之后,一路狂泄,最低至105美元。老用户并不奇怪,2011年6月之后,发生过一样的事情,32美元一路最低到达2美元以下……不过,此时此刻,并不完全像彼时彼刻。

北京时间凌晨,我在微博上发了一条:http://www.weibo.com/1576218000/zrz7oiOcQ

Quote
这一轮疯涨有结束迹象……投机的见好就收,跑吧。

睡了一觉,7个小时候,发了这条:http://www.weibo.com/1576218000/zrCe8z0sr

Quote
凌晨警告大家的时候,230美元;早晨醒来,160美元;看看历史记录,昨天最高260美元,最低105美元。不做功课就跟风的,认了吧。投机比投资好玩多了,可惜,绝大多数人根本玩不起。事实上,绝大多数人厌恶投机,就是输出来的。

--------------------

不过,这次我有个机会解释一直以来一些人的担心:“如果一个货币,大多数持有者只是囤着,不流通,那么这个货币就危险了……”

事实上,只有很少很少的一部分人会永远囤着。几乎每个人都有个属于自己的心理价位,一旦突破那条线,人就受不了了,必须行动。

200美元,就是这样一个价位。于是,一个很大的账户坐不住了…… 看这里: http://blockchain.info/address/1HQ3Go3ggs8pFnXuHVHRytPCq5fGG8Hbhx

一个6万多比特币的账户,折现了接近1000万美元。

涨得特别狠的时候,或者跌得特别狠的时候,都会出现这种情况,总是会有“大户”坐不住。

你所拥有的比特币越多,越难以做住。

两年前我就说,其实,最大的账户,流动性是最强的,只不过,看起来恰恰相反而已。

现在,我有机会解释清楚了。

30  Local / 中文 (Chinese) / 长期大量收购BTC on: July 27, 2011, 02:23:24 PM
几经思索,我决定从今天开始长期大量收购BTC。

在对Bitcoin的思考上,我早就被身边的朋友认定“是一个疯子”。呵呵,疯就疯吧,我一直就是个很疯的人,只不过,常常想办法让自己显得比较正常而已。

我个人对Bitcoin的所谓“匿名性”并不在意——事实上,Bitcoin只不过在转账那一瞬间比较匿名,一旦“落地”,就很难匿名了。

想要卖我BTC,请在gtalk上与我联络:lixiaolai@gmail.com。按MtGox当前买入价计算。货到即时付款。
