Men's luxury shoes shop will become a part of Czech bitcoin history. It is the first brick and mortar shop in the domestic market to accept bitcoins. Starting from last week it is possible to purchase shoes of different luxury brands like Church 's, Alden, Vass or Alfred Sargent for bitcoins. "Above all we want to attract young people. We were inspired by Western Europe. In Berlin or London you can pay this way normally" says shop owner Michal Kucera.

Mr. Kucera opened the store in Prague's part Ujezd last spring. He focused on brands which were missing in the portfolio of other stores. "We have a bitcoin wallet where we enter the price of the shoes, the system generates a price in bitcoins according to the current exchange rate and the customer can pay using a QR code", he explains how the transaction is carried out in practice. Acquired bitcoins are immediately exchanged back to crown or euro. "This helps to avoid loss incurred due to fluctuations of the exchange rate" he adds.

Until now it was possible to pay in bitcoins in Czech republic only while shopping online. During 6 years of existence digital currency has gained a favor among hundreds of thousands of people. Huge interest drives up the value of Bitcoin . Its price in the last two weeks got over a thousand dollars. Last Friday it was possible to buy one bitcoin (BTC) for $990 at one of the biggest bitcoin exchanges Bitstamp. While still at the beginning of this year the currency was traded for about fifteen dollars.

Bitcoin has gained many fans mainly because of it's anonymity. It's not possible to determine the identity of the owner. The second advantage is the independence of the central bank or other central authority. The disadvantage are large exchange rate fluctuations or hacker attacks .

There are clear rules on how the currency is issued, the supply is predetermined and can not be changed . Currently, there are nearly twelve million bitcoins in circulation worldwide

More and more positive news are flooding Czech press. E15 is a business focused magazine with 60 000 printouts daily. Adding to above news there is also the first pub serving beer accepting bitcoins since the beginning of December.
3  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Bitcoin academic/research resources - theses, papers, articles, etc... on: July 19, 2012, 10:38:46 AM
Hi all,
I'm new to posting, but have been watching threads for about a year.

I am planning on writing a diploma thesis at school on Bitcoin topic (from SW engineering perspective), but it's really difficult to find any "official" materials. By official I mean academic papers, other people theses, etc...

So my idea is to create a thread where we could consolidate all such science related works and I hope many of you will find this helpful not only in case you want to write something by your own, but also as a reader. If you wish to extend the list, please always note the source, author and year (if known).

Here I start with what I have found (the order is random except for Satoshi's paper, which is considered as basic starting point)

4  Other / Beginners & Help / Got a problem mining with BAMT. Help is appreciated. on: September 08, 2011, 08:25:21 AM
Hi all,

I've just tried yesterday to build my second rig on BAMT distro with 2 GPUs (5870+5850). Everything went fine, booted successfully, edited bamt.conf, pools file, but when started mining, gpumon shows only one card running (green color) and the other one is red. Picture attached.
Using phatk.



I have tried to:
- use another PCIexpress slot
- use another card (5770 instead of 5850)
- installed all BAMT fixes
- in aticonfig --list-adapters both GPUs are shown
- when I select second GPU in gpumon I see this (as you can see, the card is not mining at all)



I really sorry, if it was solved somewhere esle already, but I couldn't find a solution.

Thanks for any recommendation.

Cheers.
