1  Other / Archival / IT pro needed for venture backed bitcoin startup on: October 11, 2011, 08:06:22 PM
Hello, sorry if there is another thread for this kind of post, but I couldn't find one.  I'm looking for the best and brightest IT pro in the bitcoin community to be the lead developer in a venture backed bitcoin startup company.  The ideal candidate would have at least several years of web application development experience, having built applications from the ground up.  A solid understanding of oop and software architecture is a must.  Experience in a start-up environment is a plus, or just being super hard working, self-motivated, and creative.

Compensation can be in the form of equity or a salary, or somewhere in-between.

If interested, please send your answers to the following questions to rossulbricht at gmail dot com

1) What are your qualifications for this position?
2) What interests you about bitcoin?

From there, we can talk about things like compensation and references and I can answer your questions as well.  Thanks in advance to any interested parties.  If anyone knows another good place to recruit, I am all ears.
2  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / how exactly do the accounts work?? on: June 05, 2011, 06:28:34 AM
so bitcoind has that cool account feature where you can group addresses under account names and such.  My question is the following:

If I receive bitcoins at an address in account A, and then send bitcoins from account B using the "sendfrom" command, could it appear in the block chain that the sent coins came from account A?

In other words, do the accounts act like separate wallets, or are they just ways of organizing and labeling the addresses and bitcoins in the main wallet?

Let me know if I'm not making any sense and I'll try again.  Thanks for any help you can provide, this is actually very important to help me track down some bitcoins Smiley
3  Economy / Economics / please stop sating bubble unless you define/understand it on: May 14, 2011, 10:46:35 PM
It seems like every other post on this forum references bubbles or bursting bubbles or "it's definitely not a bubble" or "how is this not a bubble", etc.

Do you even know what you are discussing anymore?

First of all, a financial bubble has many meanings to different people.  If you're talking about credit fueled bubbles, then it's IMPOSSIBLE that there is a bubble in bitcoins because none are being lent into existence.

If you are talking about a speculative mania, I propose to use the term "blowoff"

This is common terminology in technical analysis and is much more descriptive because it describes super-parabolic rise at the end of a rising trend.

If I'm way off base on this, please correct me Smiley
4  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / bitcoind ubuntu troubleshooting, getting started on: May 13, 2011, 10:14:08 PM
Hi all,

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer me.  I am trying to run bitcoind on ubuntu 10.10.  I've got the tarball from extracted.  when I run ./bitcoind from the directory it is in, it tells me to define rpcpassword in my .bitcoin/bitcoin.conf.  I create the file and put in rpcpassword=password.  Then when I run ./bitcoind, nothing happens.  The command prompt disappears like it is working on something, but stays that way for minutes upon minutes. I left it for half an hour with no change.  I was able to ctrl+c to get back to the command prompt, though.

One thing I noticed was that a bunch of files were created in my .bitcoin folder including wallet.dat and a database folder.

I've been chewing on this for hours and can't seem to crack it.  The most frustrating part is that I've installed it before in the same way on other machines with no problem.
5  Economy / Speculation / call an end to the rally on: April 29, 2011, 03:22:54 AM
After some analysis tonight, I have come to the conclusion that the most likely end to the current rally will be at 1 btc = $4.54.  When I say end, I mean a major top will form and the price will drop at least 33% from there.  I will be putting in a sell order at $4.25 for my entire account as soon as I transfer my bitcoins there.  I'll go a step further and call an end to the drop at around parity.

Anyone else have any predictions for a top?  Anyone think it will go up and up forever without any major pull-backs?
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / help with Bitcoin development in php (variable parameters) on: April 25, 2011, 02:17:14 AM
Hi all, I have run into some trouble using the bitcoin api with php.  When I issue a command like:

$bitcoin->sendfrom($userid, $receiving_address, $amount);

I get an error like:

fopen(http://...@localhost:8332/): failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error

But when I hard code in the parameters:

$bitcoin->sendfrom("1", "1LDNLreKJ6GawBHPgB5yfVLBERi8g3SbQS", 10);

it works fine.

I did notice that I had to put quotes around the variables in my parameters for other functions to work.  For example:


But every combination of quotes or no quotes produces the error in the sendfrom function.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.  Let me know if you need more info too.
