1  Economy / Currency exchange / Selling 5 coins for EUR cash, Bremen on: June 07, 2014, 09:28:51 AM
Hello, is anyone willing to buy 5 coins for cash in Euros in Bremen?  Willing to meet anywhere public, the Hauptbahnhof is a decent place.

Asking Bitstamp rate, willing to talk.  Don't waste my time if you don't have a reputation.

4  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTS] New Seasonic X-850 PSUs for $160 each on: May 09, 2014, 01:14:55 AM
Have quite a few 850W PSUs that I'm thinking about selling.  If anyone's interested in these, I can offer a discount from the market rate on Newegg (which is $170 right now).  Accept Bitcoin only, willing to do escrow.

We still want to reassure you, that your funds are safe. We implemented a long time ago a cold wallet technique that can't be broken, because of the cryptographic implications.

You can see part of our funds here:

As you can see, all informations about our insolvency are greatly eaggerated!


Disclaimers: about half of what I know about Bitcoin I've picked up in the past few hours, and it's still negligible.
That said, tracing these transactions it seems like things end up in some bucket / accumulator accounts, passing through a large number of intermediaries.
The traceability of transactions seems like it could well work against this guy (or guys), but only if the identity/ies can be cracked.
I've been tracing some of the bigger movements on the theory that they'd end up accumulating somewhere eventually. Useful stuff: you can filter transactions by send and receive. You can also view the balance history of accounts.
One of the accumulator accounts is here, "HA1Ck": 1EBHA1ckUWzNKN7BMfDwGTx6GKEbADUozX. Note that this is the "All time" history, but transactions start on or about 25 November, 2013. Immediately 30,000 BTC are transferred in, with the final total ending up at around 41,000 BTC.
By contrast, "1Drt3c" (which I've come to call "dirt") shows a full time history here: 1Drt3c8pSdrkyjuBiwVcSSixZwQtMZ3Tew. There are some early transactions , then a few big movements in August / September, 2012. Things really start picking up in May, 2013.
Here's a typical pass-through account. There's a single incoming transaction (2014-02-06 13:25:04), and three outgoing TXs (2014-02-06 17:25:26). Two are for ~0.03 BTC ($24 and $28), the third is for ~22 BTC ($17,305). One hypothesis is that the two small payments were to associates who'd helped set up the account or otherwise facilitate the transaction, possibly unknowingly. Or skimming by members of the team ($28 times many, many transactions could add up).
If I follow that transaction line (to the max recipient) we eventually end up at 1Kr5vYUWR5W2zX5c7UKWBcpJjmPx5W5bBU which exhibits an oddity: this account receives 2.04268209 BTC (2014-02-08 23:46:37), and pays out 91.09238209 BTC (2014-02-08 23:52:12). I've seen this pattern elsewhere. Odd. But a bunch of penny-ante BTC transactions (well, if $1000 TXs can be penny-ante) suddenly jump to $62k. Let's follow that...
Another account with zero balance, but it's had a significant balance. Transactions start September, 2013, and zero out in February, 2014.
One chain ends here: 1JU3iYTcCeB34TLCN7XYwHDbDmVwnThjaK with a 971 BTC balance.
Another here: 1HiLGVR7T8siQVs4X5hSdWx15C5mW2JtSm balance: 10,084.17667 BTC. But also a 35,998 BTC payout 2014-02-12, $23.9 million. That chain end here: 1F5N5kz8RMEYWjMYJVjnxQwD8Z8NVW3qiW. One transaction, 33,878.9999 BTC. Not a bad day's work. Only 5% of the missing amount though. IP relay through Italy, apparently.
Off to some more chains and transactions...
A small accumulator TX -- 36 addresses contributing a total of 10.2 BTC ($8,070)
Another accumulator. Two big payouts in early December, and Frebruary
An endpoint from there: 1EogffKJZjtuBwQtJzYzmDfeekafG3Gwyc, though I suspect it's a waypoint. The transaction just occurred 10 hours ago. About a half-million dollars.
Endpoint 971 BTC 10 hours ago.
Endpoint / accumulater with ~2000 BTC (about $1 million): 1BLqSWgYaZRV6EZGW1TiAHcFUCKh8qG3M1. This shows up on several transaction paths.
Lots more, but that's what I'm seeing so far.

This address is linked to large movements associated with a huge 782k BTC wallet that were posted on Reddit (

Specifically, seems likely to be a Gox cold wallet transaction if all of the above is correct, and if true, should prove that Gox has >2000 coins.

7  Bitcoin / Group buys / Volume deal: $2.75 per gh, Terraminer IV, BELOW COST, PROFIT PROTECTION PLAN on: October 09, 2013, 09:16:35 PM
We are gauging interest in a deal for Terraminer IV hardware, which will be discounted to 2.75$/GH (sticker price is $3).  Hardware will ship in January.  Minimum buy in is $10,000.  Up to $1M of hardware is available.

Why should you take this deal? Not only do you get the special discount, but also the guarantee that every day our shipment is late, you will receive 1% additional hash power.

In addition to the above, volume deals would be available for larger orders.

 Let me repeat, this is a tentative offer. You can help make it happen by reserving a spot.

Let me know if you're interested, and what price you would be willing to pay.

You must be a VERY reputable trader for me to think about doing a deal.

11  Other / Off-topic / proudhon owes adam 10 BTC on: May 10, 2013, 02:38:00 AM
Is it just me, or is the recent breakout above $7 a sign that we may be making new all time highs next year? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

yes, breaking 7 was significant. It a sign that points up, But I predict their will be a short sell off period above 8$, which will slowly bring us back down to 6.50ish, after that the 2011 high will the next target  and of course we will dramatically over shoot into the 100's


hold your lol's for next years, when you sold off all your bitcoins and the price keeps going up but you dont care cuz your busy buying a new house  Wink

If that happens adamstgBit, I'll give you 10 bitcoins, just for me being so profoundly short sighted and wrong.  Free of charge.

Bolded part... adam claiming we will "shoot into the 100's" this year Smiley

13  Economy / Securities / Unofficial ASICMINER announcement thread on: May 07, 2013, 03:14:54 AM
This will be the central repository for friedcat updates.
After each update, responses to/analyses of the update will be taken from the main ASICMINER thread, conglomerated and categorized (bullish reaction, bearish reaction, profit estimates, etc).  They will then be posted in a single, short summary post after the update.

I hope this serves as a more organized shareholder information thread than the main thread.

17  Economy / Speculation / Battle of $50 on: April 16, 2013, 04:03:59 AM
Are the walls going to hold?  Given the sheer volume of coins sold today, it's amazing that there's still fuel for this fire...
18  Economy / Speculation / calm the fuck down everyone on: April 15, 2013, 10:08:00 PM
I can't believe another one of these threads is needed
... at a time when Gox has finally fixed its lag issues, which caused the crash in the first place
... at a time when the Winklevii have revealed their bitcoin balance
... at a time when Bitcoin adoption is through the roof, both with merchants and normal users
... at a time when Gox has a record long verification queue
... at a time when the future looks far brighter than it did during the fork...

But it appears that people insist on panicking for no reason at all!  So here it is.  Calm the fuck down everyone!
19  Economy / Speculation / Bid depth sustainable again on: April 12, 2013, 06:08:52 PM
One thing I noticed as we went up was that the bid side was getting seriously overextended.  5000 BTC could often push it down $30.  There was never over 60k BTC to $100 on the bid side, even when we were at $266, and 100k BTC would push it all the way to $20 at times.  I was in denial about this but it was unquestionably happening.  It was probably a sign that we would crash.

Now, 60k BTC will push it down to $60, and 100k BTC will push it down to $37.  This looks much more sustainable, so it seems like $60 will hold.  When we were going up, there was 60k BTC to $60 during the recovery from $52.  This support is underscored by the exponential trendline from January.

We are at healthy levels again.
20  Economy / Speculation / The true impact of Gox on Bitcoin on: April 12, 2013, 02:14:20 AM
Where does everyone think the price would be right now if Gox was competent enough to not gox everyone in June '11 and also avoid these "DDoS"/lag issues right now?
