1  Bitcoin / Legal / BitCoin ruled illegal in Thailand on: July 29, 2013, 12:25:01 PM
First shot across the bow!  Thailand rules that all transactions involving BTC are illegal.  Wonder how they'll enforce it...

3  Economy / Services / First Inter-Continental "Buy a Round of Pints" using BTC on: June 27, 2013, 01:19:15 AM
What better service is a pint of beer from fellow bitcoiners?  I came across this thread in the Press section:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=243366.0

How cool would it be to do this?  How great would it be to get a live feed of the transaction?  I PM'd JohnK to see if he'd be willing to hold the central wallet.  I'm in for three pints.  Who's in?

Very cool article.  I have an idea.  First inter-continental "buy a round " on BTC.  If you're outside of the UK, post here an amount you'd be willing to spend (maybe 2 pints?).   Set up a pool wallet and when we have enough, get a time and date and send it to the pub.  Extra points for a live video feed and the patrons holding up a "Thanks, bitcointalk.org!" sign.  

I'll start it off with whatever the cost is for three pints at that pub.  Could JohnK or someone make a wallet for this?

Here's the pubs Facebook account.  I don't have FB but maybe someone here can contact Luke Parker to set this up.

4  Economy / Scam Accusations / Garr255/Werner - Auction shilling on: June 20, 2013, 12:58:10 AM
Garr255 has been caught posting using a second forum account under the name "Werner".  This claim (from Inaba) was verified by Garr255 himself. 

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=236794.msg2517652#msg2517652

Further investigation shows that several auctions started by Garr255 were bid shilled by the Werner account here...

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=159808.msg1689855#msg1689855

and here...

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=214965.msg2352295#msg2352295

and here...

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=214965.msg2297359#msg2297359

What shows is an obvious pattern of auction shilling, making victims of:

1@65 - Vezunchik
1@63 - starsoccer9

The coin loss is not substantial, a couple hundred dollars between just these two.  However, I think it's in the best interest of the forum to add the scammer tag to both Garr255 and Werner accounts.
