1  Other / Meta / AgoraCommodities Article Thread Removed from Press on: July 17, 2013, 08:36:21 AM
Does anyone know why the Agora article thread in Press was removed?

This is the article and there was good content in the thread.
2  Other / Meta / Seals thread in Gambling on: April 14, 2013, 07:12:35 PM
Somehow Seals thread got locked (not by me, I tried the unlock, no luck). I'm not sure who the Gambling mod is so I emailed theymos 24 hours ago (how dare he take break) . If anyone else can help that would be great.
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Help recover wallet after Windows OS upgrade on: March 30, 2013, 08:28:45 PM
Someone I know needs help from a trusted member with recovering a wallet. The wallet contains a substantial amount of coin. It may be easy, hard, or impossible, I can't be sure. The fee would probably be contingent. If you think I might trust you, PM me and I'll choose who to put in contact with him.

The jist of the problem is this. He had some system problems (Windows Vista) and a tech installed Windows 7 telling him all of his programs would be fine. Bitcoin was still installed, but the wallet is empty.

Just an image, a sentence and a link to bitcoin magazine, but there are a lot of comments.
5  Bitcoin / Press / 2013-02-26 - Alternative Currency Goes Mainstream As Bitcoin ATMs on: February 26, 2013, 08:41:30 PM
Bitcoin represents another way to fight back against the current repressive and immoral monetary system that has a strangle hold on the planet.  Ever since (the extremely popular blogging platform and 22nd most popular site on the internet), decided to accept Bitcoin as payment last November the value of Bitcoins versus the U.S. dollar has more than doubled. The esoteric crypto-currency continues to gain popularity and technologies to make it even more user friendly are popping up all over the place.  The latest is the Bitcoin ATM, which could be a serious game changer for adoption.
6  Bitcoin / Press / 2012-11-19 Bitcoin online gambling sites: pros, cons and preachin on: November 19, 2012, 01:46:03 AM

As for Bitcoin’s future with US-facing gambling sites, Micon says Seals is helping lead the way for “a totally different model that I think will exist alongside regulated USA gaming sites.” Seals “does no banking whatsoever” with US institutions, “only Bitcoin in and Bitcoin out, all for a max rake of 0.1 Bitcoins [currently about $1]. And we give a significant percentage of that rake back in promotions for our top players.” And unlike traditional sites, Seals’ users remain completely anonymous, except for the fact that, at present, they all seem to know each other.

The article mentions SD, SwitchPoker, StrikeSapphire and BC-Casino and has 3 paragraphs about Seals.

Anyone else love this?

You can see how it works without downloading anything here:

and the source is open.

I'm thinking of how I can adapt it to an interactive bitcoin skill game.

8  Bitcoin / Press / 2012-11-03 - Poker with Bitcoin on: November 04, 2012, 10:01:39 AM

When the FBI and Department of Justice seized the domains of leading poker sites in April of last year, they also froze (read stole) their assets. Some people believe they have found a way around that, and around any such future government seizures, from poker players or anybody else; this solution is Bitcoin.

They mention Seals and its affiliate program. I don't know why they say we are shy about answering questions. I wasn't contacted.
9  Other / Meta / Moved topics on: November 02, 2012, 01:52:27 AM
We've got a consistent lot of moved topics especially in the general section. They need to be there so people can find recently moved topics, but it seems they could be shown in the way that topics with an ignored OP are shown. It would look cleaner imho. It might also reduce the benefit of starting threads in the wrong section for the purpose of advertising.
10  Economy / Service Discussion / MtGox - does sending to a mtgox bitcoin address always show in the chain? on: October 22, 2012, 10:13:48 PM
I seem to recall MtGox arranging it so that if you sent bitcoins from your MtGox account to an address associated with another MtGox account they didn't bother making the bitcoin transaction and just credited the account. Does anyone know if this still their policy? Thanks.

In general I think it is a terrible idea since you are robbed of your permanent audit-able 'receipt' when this is done.

Change or add one word to this sentence, and don't post anything else in this thread.
12  Economy / Service Discussion / Money left in Trade Hill on: September 02, 2012, 09:18:59 PM
A friend was lazy about getting his money out of Trade Hill when they were closing. It is ~100BTC. His few emails somewhat recently haven't been answered.

Is anyone in contact with Jered? Has anyone gotten funds recently? Did they make any statement about a final deadline or what they will do with funds?
13  Economy / Lending / Borrowing GSDPT on: August 31, 2012, 10:36:40 AM
I'd like to borrow 50000 shares of GSDPT. I'll pay 3%/mo interest, transfer fees, and and dividends. Willing to make a deal for as few as 10000 shares.

What I learned is that molecular structure ain't nothing but a thang.

It is enjoyable.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / EXCEPTION: 11DbException Db::open: Invalid argument bitcoin in Run on: June 24, 2012, 04:32:57 PM
I can't stop getting this error: EXCEPTION: 11DbException        Db::open: Invalid argument        bitcoin in Runaway exception

It started when I tried to open a version 3 wallet with version 5. After clearing everything I got it again, then again after clearing everything and using 0.6.2. Then again using the version 5 wallet I've been using.

Usually I'm getting it about 40k blocks into the download.

I'm using ubuntu 11.10. Plenty of memory and disk. I have had problems with memory before (FF leaking memory I think), but I don't have any other symptoms of that now.
16  Economy / Gambling / - Make the bet you want on: June 10, 2012, 02:58:10 AM
Myriad offers flexible bets. You enter the amount you want to bet and the amount you want sent if you win and it offers you odds. You can accept the wager by sending payment.

The max bet, win amount and effective fee (lower odds than 'fair') depend on how much is in the wallet.

We're testing with real money, but a smaller wallet for now. Because the effective fee is determined by the percent of the wallet you are trying to win the fee will be higher now for the same wager compared to after the wallet is fully loaded up.

The games are cryptographically provably fair. We use sha256 to hash [junk, timestamp, our guess] when you first hit the site. After the wager is completed we reveal [junk, timestamp, our guess] and you can check that the guess is the one we committed to at the time you came to the site.

Since wins are determined by how close your guess is to ours you don't need to worry about how we select our guess.

Please give feedback! And ask questions if anything is unclear.

Max bet has been raised! Right now you can bet .01 to win 19.70!
17  Other / Beginners & Help / A Challenge! on: May 29, 2012, 07:48:55 AM
I need more 3-1 night chess.

If you want to make a bet, awesome.

If you don't, accept my free challenge and I'll send you a nickel if you beat me.

I am goisbetter1. It is regular chess except the nights move 3 and 1 instead of the normal 2 and 1.

18  Economy / Securities / Borrowing GLBSE Shares on: May 29, 2012, 03:13:10 AM
I'm surprised to not see any talk of this. I'll kick it off with an offer and my idea of good terms.

I'd like to borrow up to 2000 shares of FZB. I am willing to do amounts down to 100 shares, but for simplicity will wait a day to see if I get a large offer first.

I will pay any dividends issued during the time I am borrowing the shares.

I will pay a monthly fee at the beginning of each month until I return the shares.

You can request your shares back at any time and I will return them within one month but will not pay another monthly fee after your request. I will still pay any dividends.

I will pay GLBSE transfer fees.

Unfortunately I have only a finite amount of bitcoins so I want to give myself an out. I reserve the right to give 10x the btc price of the shares at the time of the loan in place of returning the shares.
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bug - Site Offline - Recheck @ on: May 26, 2012, 09:44:34 PM
A serious bug at was just brought to my attention and I've turned the site off while it is investigated and fixed.

I don't know how long this bug has existed, but I suspect it could be a few weeks. This means you should NOT USE FIRSTBITS that you got from until you or the person who gave them to you double check at

I'm very sorry for the inconvenience and I hope it doesn't cost anyone any money. I don't expect that it will because I -think- the bug is only causing it to not return addresses when it should.
