1  Other / Off-topic / Does anyone have the Inside Man episode on Bitcoin? on: June 01, 2017, 04:30:30 AM
I'm talking about the one featured in the following youtube video:

I can't manage to find it anywhere. There seem to be no DVDs of the series or active torrents. I would very much appreciate it if anyone could provide a link to where I could download the episode. Thanks in advance.
2  Economy / Speculation / New ATH by July 2017 on: August 03, 2016, 07:47:44 PM
Everyone that sold under $500 forgot the halving just happened. They're in for some regret these coming months of a halved production rate. So far, it seems the worst-case scenario of a cascading hashrate reduction, fueled by blocks taking longer and longer to mine (because of slow difficulty adjustment) did not and will not happen. I ran the numbers through my arbitrary-line-drawer and totes-legit-math-machine. And it told me to expect bitcoin's price to be above $1200 July 13th 2017.

Be ready. Use cold storage. Stay away from HYIPs.

Good luck, everyone!
3  Economy / Speculation / Bitcoin will never reach $700 again on: March 08, 2016, 01:33:13 AM
This is why I have liquidated my position in Bitcoins. There is very little upside going forward. Block size limit is too low. No forward moves of late have any traction whatsoever and demand continues to lag. Way too little upside for such a risky proposition so my advice is to move into dollars.  Only a significant change in the economy could alter this forecast.

6  Economy / Goods / [WTS] Used 3DS, ocarina of time edition. on: August 31, 2015, 01:40:44 AM
I'm just testing the waters to see if anybody is interested. I have a 3DS that is the Ocarina of Time special edition, quite collectible. But I wont lie, it's a bit beat up. Looking at amazon, I see one being sold at $113 with "plenty of scratches". The other one at that range without stylus or charger. Mine comes with those essentials, and Mario Kart 7. It has Pokem X pre-installed, but the 3DS is linked to my nintendo account in Canada, so I think a system format would have to be in order (erasing the game). I would hope $140 (shipping included?) is a fair price? I'll be sure to upload a few pictures.

I'm willing to pay the escrow fees (have it be deducted from the payment, the payment being in bitcoin), and I'll be sure to have it shipped ASAP, and provide all the info I can. This would be my first time sending something outside the country, so that's cool. Hope to hear from you guys and gals. I'll be updating this post with pictures soon.
7  Economy / Digital goods / [WTB] Old bitcoin wallets on: August 20, 2015, 06:01:53 AM
I'm also looking for bitcoin wallets with activity going back more than a year. The balance and all other attributes are really irrelevant, the older the activity, the better. Make sure to include price proposals and date of first transaction (preferably with the address, too. If you're comfortable providing it). Thanks in advance. Happy trading!  Cool


I ran low on money sooner than expected, but I'll have more soon. We can make deals, but I wont be able to pay until the 1st of September. So I guess we can make a deal now and carry it out then (after September first).
8  Other / Beginners & Help / Does the wallet.dat file only work for bitcoincore? on: August 06, 2015, 06:41:50 AM
I lost my computer's charger, and I need my bitcoin. I have my file backed up, but I want a more immediate solution than downloading all of the blockchain. I tried with, but all I get is "connection denied". Then I tried leading some bitcoin, resulting in a moralizing person placing negative trust on my account, hence I have no collateral...

So I really need to know which program to download to be able to import my btc (currently in the wallet.dat file) there, and buy a charger with them.
9  Economy / Trading Discussion / Where is the trusted escrow list? on: August 06, 2015, 03:24:20 AM
I need to use an escrow, but I cant find the list! Thanks in advance.
10  Economy / Lending / I TOO need an urgent loan quickly!!1 on: August 06, 2015, 01:00:01 AM
So, I lost my laptop's charger. Stupid, I know. Anyways I need one of two things, someone willing to buy me a charger, holding the collateral until I pay them back (I'll start paying More on that later as soon as I get the charger, I promise). Or to lend some bitcoin for me to buy it myself. I was thinking perhaps this one I found on amazon ( It's for a Samsung R440, BTW (NP-R440-JA09VE, to be precise).

So, what about collateral? I have this, my full member main account, two jr member accounts, and a newbie account (with an awesome username). Looking at the charger in the amazon link, I'm gonna need about $25, depending on shipping (to florida) BTC0.1 (realistically? assuming nobody here does me a freebie) should be able to cover it, right? Here's where the payment plan comes in. I have 0.096 BTC available to me, but I promised this guy IRL I would buy him something online (he already paid me), so how's this payment plan sound? I pay 0.045 the day I get the charger (sometime next week, probably), then 0.02 September 1st and finally 0.04 September 15th. I really dont like lending money, I really dont like asking you guys for money (or a laptop charger, if you decide to cut out the middleman), and I feel the payment plan is too spread out, but that's the best I can do!

Thanks in advance, guys and gals.
11  Other / Beginners & Help / I need to double-spend. I got the private key... now what? on: July 10, 2015, 11:08:50 PM
So, my transaction has not been going through for over two days. I got the address' private key... now what do I do to to push a transaction through to invalidate the first one? I remember that I read could do that on But both BitcoinCore and are not letting me do it.

Thanks in advance.
12  Other / Beginners & Help / Are public addresses and private keys case-sensitive? on: July 08, 2015, 04:59:29 AM
Also, what's that about "signed messages" I keep hearing at the bitcointalk account sales discussions?
Thanks in advance for the answer(s). Cool
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Litecoin predictions. on: July 08, 2015, 02:11:44 AM
So, litecoin is dead. Long live litecoin!

Anyways, we've all noticed the speculative boom that Litecoin has received these months preceding its halving. Litecoin has quadrupled it's price over the last 8 weeks. This boom seems to be mostly fueled by speculation about Litecoin's price past the halving, and I believe that the price cant rise much more, probably not above $6 or $7. So I drew a few lines that predict a few scenarios when it comes down to what LTC's price will do these following months.
For those who have trouble understanding the following image, here are a few predictions for the next 8 months.

By November, the price will have dropped to $4.70, $4.50, or $3.50. From there, it might go to $3.70 by December. By March 2016, the price will go to ether $3.65, $5.40 or $5.53

Nice trading! Cheesy
14  Economy / Speculation / Bear's last hope: we stay between $200 and $300 until july 2016 on: July 01, 2015, 09:47:19 PM
Bitcoin is a deflationary currency by nature. It was unique in implementing this idea until the altcoins came to be. Satoshi's invention will be like the lighbulb, world changing, revolutionary, widely implemented and spreading into new markets years after the inventor's death. Anyways, I believe that bitcoin will follow a base uptrend indefinitely, be it lineal or logarithmic. I believe that there is a floor at $100. we will never again see double digit bitcoins (unless you scam someone out of their bitcoins).
We are at the end of the beartrend since the ATH. We can see now-obvious bottom of $150. The price has only been moving upwards since last month (after the week of absolute boredom both bears and bulls suffered through). The next halving is coming, just one year and 6 months to go, we've all seen the speculative boom Litecoin went through. Litecoin's price tripled its price since may. At the moment, Litecoin is trying to break part the $4 mark. Bitcoin will go back above $300, it's only a matter of "when".

At the moment, the best case scenario for bears (that is actually possible to happening). Is no movement upwards until 2016. By bitcoin's deflationary nature, and seeing Litecoin's undeniable revival (with a debatable lifespan after the halving), the most bearish scenario that I can think up (that has a realistic chance of happening) is a perpetual repeat of what we've seen since january 20th of this year (failure to rise above $300 and failure to crash below $200) until 2016, followed by a push up and beyond $1300 (peaking somewhere below $4000 sometime 2017)

TLDR: This is the "best" the bears realistically can do:
15  Economy / Economics / MtGox VS Bank bailouts. on: June 28, 2015, 03:07:13 AM
I was just thinking of the 2008 bank bailouts, then I thought of the money lost in MtGox. I'm curious what you think. The bank bailouts seem to have cost us (citizens of USA) 21 billion dollars. MtGox lost stole 240 million dollar's worth of bitcoin (valued at $1200 each). Is bitcoin really that much riskier than cash? I would say no.
16  Other / Off-topic / What is your avatar, and why did you choose it to be so? on: June 10, 2015, 04:46:33 AM
I just got an avatar! I am so, so happy! Since day one, I wanted to use this avatar, in this forum. That got me thinking to ask everyone here about their avatar. What is the image? what does it mean to you? What meaning can you make up for it? I love black-suited spiderman because he is the balance between good and evil. Power corrupts, and even those that know they must do good can lose themselves in it. So one must always be careful not to step on the little guys. Not to fuck people over just because.

Also, venom is awesome. And so is spiderman. Both in one character? Cool.

17  Economy / Trading Discussion / Which exchanges need little verification? on: June 07, 2015, 04:04:19 AM
I tried to verify on bitstamp, but I dont have any of my bills to my name. I really dont mind providing my ID, but it seems I just cannot easily verify my address. I've been forced to purchase marked-up bitcoins on localbitcoin. Are there any exchanges that deal with the real price that are more lax in verification? Ideally, ID-only.
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / [] on: May 10, 2015, 01:04:02 AM
You chose escrow (you pay any fees), I'll be back to check offers when my litecoin wallet finishes it's sync (3 weeks behind). No escrow, no deal.
