Take my poll

Please take a minute to vote on my poll. I'd like to know what services you most want to spend your bitcoins on while in vegas.

Please keep in mind that this is a family friendly site. I am working on a similar version that is more appropriate for adult entertainment.

But for now, please vote on your favorite category and I will focus my bitcoin promotions on those top categories. Your vote here will be discussed with those merchants to demonstrate the potential market they would be filling.

Thanks for your help and feel free to check out the current merchants and hospitality workers that currently support bitcoin in Las Vegas and give them your support when you come and visit.

8  Bitcoin / Project Development / New Sexy Bitcoin Video on: June 14, 2012, 05:07:44 AM
A few months ago, I posted some bounties for some sexy Bitcoin videos and tutorials. I was able to collect 15.5 Bitcoins from the community because they were great ideas and everyone knew they would do well for Bitcoin's popularity. Unfortunately, no entertainers submitted any entries to the contest and so the bounties were closed. I returned 1 Bitcoin to one person that asked for it back and promised the remaining funds would go to support my TOR exit project.

After some encouragement from other members in the community and recent "cash flow" problems hightlighted in the adult forums and threads, I, instead, have another plan for those 15.5 Bitcoins...

I would like to announce that LadyBytes and I are teaming up to produce another introductory Bitcoin video that aims to teach new users how to get Bitcoins quick and use them on the various adult oriented sites such as deCrypto, Cam4BTC, and GGB. This project will be kickstarted by those 15.5 Bitcoins I collected earlier.

LadyBytes and I have been hashing out some ideas that should make this a fun video for the whole Bitcoin community and informative for everyone else. Our goal is to show exactly how easy it is to get Bitcoins with a humor laced, sexy, real world walk-thru of the process. Our timeline is to have a finished product released by the end of this month. I would like to invite you to contribute to her efforts and encourage her excitement for this project by contributing to a new bounty address. All proceeds will be going directly to LadyBytes at the completion and release of the video. As expected, she'll be "exposing" a tipping address at some point as well but it would be nice if she could see your excitement about this along the way too.

If you would like to contribute additional funds to the resolution of this project, please send your donation to <bounty address closed>. This is a vanity I generated. When the project is completed, 100% of the funds will be paid to the address LadyBytes reveals in the tutorial.
9  Bitcoin / Project Development / Bitcoin Informant - Keep your friends informed. on: June 05, 2012, 03:53:20 PM
Due to a domain collision with, I've officially rebranded the website to "Bitcoin Informant".

The weekly newsletter will now be published under this new domain

Below is a sample of the newsletter in the new format. Current translations: Brazilian Portuguese, Czech, English with Vietnamese, Russian, Ukrainian coming soon. If you would like to help out with a translation in your language, I am offering to place your tipping address on the newsletter so you can receive some incentive to help out.

Also, we just got our 20th subscriber. A raffle was drawn and Miguel Pacheco of Texas won the first free tshirt giveaway. I'd do another raffle when we get 40 subscribers.

10  Bitcoin / Project Development / Bounty : OpenSSL with EC for Fedora/RH/CentOS : 3.6 BTC on: June 03, 2012, 11:01:18 PM

I would like someone to explain exactly how to build OpenSSL with EC on Fedora and make it available in RPM format in a personal repository. This is specifically to help Fedora users more easily build Bitcoin applications.

I need the following documented or explained:

Build OpenSSL with EC
Create/configure/maintain a .spec file
Build the OpenSSL RPM so that it is compatible with the existing Fedora OpenSSL version.
Generate/publish a PGP key for use in authenticating releases
Creating a repository and publishing the rpm

I can build the current version of OpenSSL source code. I am currently stuck at interpreting what needs to be done with the .spec file downloaded from the Fedora repository (/fedora/linux/updates/16/SRPMS/openssl-1.0.0j-1.fc16.src.rpm)

I will pay 3 Bitcoins to someone who can help me (walk thru) via email/chat to compile openssl with EC on Fedora, package it in an RPM, and help me set up my own repository so I can yum install it to multiple workstations.
12  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Address Book Import/Export on: May 27, 2012, 02:55:07 PM
A feature I think is desperately needed is address book import/export standard for transporting and syncing between clients.

13  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Assessing zero confirm transactions with a risk formula on: May 21, 2012, 04:14:14 PM
Does anyone think it might be useful to discuss a formula that could be used to assess risk of accepting a transaction based on individual green addresses?

The way it would work is a spender would send their bitcoins from their own personal green address. It's nothing special, except that it is just an address they continuously keep funded to make rapid payments.

The idea is that the block chain can see the date of first spend, the number of transactions per day (average), even some kind of frequency analysis like even distributions over time or all bunched up a long time ago, a clean history of no double spends, etc.

On top of that, each receiving client can be programmed with risks associated with different amounts of Bitcoin received... that is, anything under 1 btc, low risk, anything over 50 btc medium risk, etc. Then the client could display some sort of indication of trust for that transaction.

What I would like to discuss, if you guys think this would be useful, is the criteria for the computation of blockchain data, and user configurable datapoints that would make this useful to the community.

15  Economy / Trading Discussion / Hawala Network - Orange County, CA / Las Vegas, NV / Laurel, MD on: May 19, 2012, 03:10:56 PM
I would like to meet someone from Orange County, CA or Fort Mead, DC area, who would be willing to potentially meet a family member or friend of mine locally to do a face-to-face bitcoin-for-cash exchange. It would be infrequently, and I don't have any specific needs right now, but I would like to establish a relationship now and exchange social network info now.

I am willing to do the same for anyone that needs a contact in Las Vegas, NV for the same purpose.
16  Bitcoin / Project Development / SUCCESS! The First Grade School Bitcoin Project! on: May 16, 2012, 06:24:34 PM
So after tipping my kid's teachers with Bitcoin during Teacher Appreciation Week, I have been invited to come to school this Friday and indoctrinate the little skulls full of mush to the wonders of Bitcoin.

Here is the flier I'm handing out during the class.

Prior to the class, I'll be writing in some short URLs to some instawallets with a few bitcents for the kids to play with.

During the class, I'll give them the general idea of Bitcoin, show them how to move bitcoins around from wallet to wallet, and invite them to trade them for crafts (or whatever they can think of) and then I'll give the teacher some ideas for some kind of report in a week or two to discuss what they learned and how they used it.

17  Bitcoin / Project Development / Teacher Appreciation Week on: May 01, 2012, 07:44:04 PM
Between May 7th - May 11th

This is an email I'm sending to my kid's teachers.

Dear Teacher,

In anticipation for Teacher Appreciation Week, I would like to give you $5 USD in a new digital currency that is poised to change the world, just like the Internet and email did decades ago.

This currency is called Bitcoin and it is made possible by free, open source Window/Mac/Linux/Smartphone software and new advances in cryptography and peer-to-peer networking. In short, it allows any individual to transfer a store of value, in any amount, across the Internet, to any other individual, regardless of their geo/political boundary - for free.

Here is a radio ad played nation wide regarding Bitcoin:

Here is a more detailed over view of how Bitcoin works:

There is even a music video that illustrates the culture of Bitcoin:

I have created an online wallet for you to store your Bitcoins. To claim/use them, visit this URL:<insert wallet id here>

Caution: There is no username or password associated with this wallet. The security of the money stored here rests solely in your ability to keep this URL a secret. If anyone can see, read, or copy this URL, they can access the wallet just as easily as you and spend your Bitcoins.

Take some time to read up on Bitcoin at and when next week comes around, if you choose to exchange your Bitcoins for the same value in US dollars, <insert kid's name here> will be MORE than happy to accept these Bitcoins and fair value in dollars.

P.S. My kid wants Bitcoins for their allowance, that's how much they love it.
18  Bitcoin / Project Development / on: April 30, 2012, 02:17:06 PM
Hello Bitcoiners,

I'm introducing as a way to promote Bitcoin to our friends, family, and coworkers on a daily basis.

Simply, I am producing a weekly newsletter for you to print out and post in your home, work place, or anywhere that will highlight recent news in the Bitcoin world. They are just talking points, but delivered in a consistent and stimulating manner. Every time someone walks by your desk, they can be reminded that Bitcoin is an active, growing, and positive topic.

Take every opportunity you can to talk with people about how it works, get them to try a wallet, and engage them. Over time, if we all do this, positive Bitcoin awareness will explode.

If you subscribe to the mailing list (, I'll send you a download link once a week so you don't even have to think about it. Just print out the flier and post it somewhere conspicuous. You can personalize it so people in the break room know how to find you, etc.

Also, I'm doing a Bitcoin give-away through Each day, randomly, between 1000 and 1200 PST, new Bitcoins will be made available. The idea is that you encourage someone at your desk, who happens to stop by and inquire about the flier can try their luck at getting some Bitcoins right then and there.

I hope you guys like this idea and help spread it around.

Good luck and Viva La Bitcoin!

20  Bitcoin / Project Development / New Bounties on: April 01, 2012, 05:20:39 AM
I'm proposing the following bounties for our new girl friends at If I've missed something interesting, toss out the idea and I'll create a new address for the bounty. These addresses have been generated offline and willl not be mixed in a shared wallet making the accounting a lot easier. If a bounty fails, all bitcoins will be returned to the key holding owners after they provide a digital signature from the key.

You guys will decide which ideas get the most attention. The more Bitcoin a bounty gets, the more likely it will be fulfilled. I will not accept any contestant video submissions until 2012-04-16 to allow the bounty to build and give the girls a chance to come up with their submissions. On 2012-04-16, The girls will post their submissions to They will be required to display their postcard with their reddit username and their bitcoin short address/URL. If there are multiple submissions for a particular bounty, then the winner will be determined by the most number of views the video received on 2012-05-01 0800 PST. If their is only one submission for a particular bounty, then the bounty will be forwarded to the submitter. If a contestant video is posted before 2012-04-16 0000 PST, it will be disqualified. Videos should not be more than 5 minutes and abide by the TOS of Contestants may compete for multiple bounties.

Below are my initial bounty addresses and details. I will accept modifications and new ideas until 2012-04-04.
