21  Other / Meta / Automated PGP PMs in forum on: May 30, 2013, 12:06:54 AM
I am imagining a forum where private messages between users are automatically PGP encrypted behind the scenes.  I am imagining where one would have to upload their public key to their profile page and somehow when Sam private messages Sally the server locates Sally's public key, encrypts Sam's message and then delivers a PGP ASCII message to Sally's inbox.

Does anyone know if any current forum software has a feature like this?  If not, how do you think it could be done?

25  Bitcoin / Project Development / [ANN] - Crowdfunding Campaigns to Spread Adoption of Bitcoin on: May 20, 2013, 08:48:52 PM
CoinFunder is excited to announce a new section called Initiatives.

What is a CoinFunder Initiative?
A CoinFunder Initiative is a crowdfunding campaign where Bitcoiners can show interest in organizations that do not currently accept Bitcoin. CoinFunder allows for a centralized location where an organization can see how much support there is from the Bitcoin community to adopt Bitcoin.

How does an Initiative work?
Anyone can create an Initiative for any organization that is not currently accepting Bitcoin. Other users can pledge Bitcoins if they would like to see the organization accept Bitcoin for their goods or services. No Bitcoins are collected until the organization starts accepting Bitcoin, and the initiative claim has been verified by CoinFunder.

What happens after I make a Bitcoin Pledge?

Once an Initiative has been claimed and verified by CoinFunder, an email will be sent out to everyone who has made a pledge for that initiative directing them to fund their initiative. The first 5% of the funds goes to CoinFunder, the remaining 95% is directed directly to the Bitcoin address that the organization enters.

What incentive is there for the funder who makes a Bitcoin Pledge?
Your Bitcoin pledge does not promise any sort of service or product in return, but instead the pledge is used as a monetary incentive for Bitcoin acceptance. We all win as Bitcoin spreads. We hope to work with the organization that claims the Initiative to provide some sort of reward to funders, but there is no gurantee of any type of reward.

What fees does CoinFunder charge for Initiatives?
CoinFunder charges a flat 5% fee for each successful initiative - 2% of that fee goes to the person who starts and promotes the initiative.

If you know an organization that is not currently accepting Bitcoin, start your own initiative now and start pledging!

28  Bitcoin / Project Development / [IDEA] Website for organized bitcoin acceptance campaigning on: May 10, 2013, 02:15:46 AM
I see a lot of posts about how someone just recently emailed X company to start accepting bitcoins. I was wondering if we as a community should start organizing efforts to inform different businesses about bitcoin.

I have seen websites in the past where people pledge X amount of dollars to spend on a company if they did Y. Perhaps we could make a website similar to this where people can vote on different companies to target for the week and pledge X amount of bitcoins if they did. It obviously would be sort of an honor system since I don't think people will want to blindly put their bitcoins into something that isnt a sure thing.

The website could be organized similar to all those political sites where there are clear and convenient buttons to email/tweet/facebook etc said company and perhaps a pre-written script.

Or to avoid a swarm of emails - perhaps a website dedicated to a walk-a-thon type pledging, where users would pledge and once funding got to a certain point an email would be dispatched to the company detailing how much support they have from BTC users.

Hopefully the site could also automate integration of bitpay for them somehow... I don't know just spitballing my drunken ass off here Cheesy  I think this would work best with smaller companies rather than large ones (see amazon, newegg etc).

What do you guys think?

Small sample of businesses I have in mind:

  • Grooveshark:  Grooveshark is an internationally available online music search engine, music streaming service and music recommendation web software with a subscription option for anytime mobile use.
  • Dollar Shave Club:  A subscription based razors for a fraction of the price online store where razors are shipped monthly.
  • Giftly:  Lets users buy personalized online gift certificates to local businesses through their phones. (Commenting on the currect Gyft Bitpay integration would be really good.)
  • Quarterly: Every three months for $25, users get a gift created exclusively for Quarterly by influencers such as reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, Swiss designer Tina Roth Eisenberg and writer Joshua Foer.

29  Economy / Goods / [WTS] Saab 9-3 2001 Needs a Bit of Work [COLORADO] on: May 10, 2013, 12:40:03 AM
Yes, yet another hopeful car selling in BTC.  It's not exotic and it does need some work but I thought i'd give it a go.  Located outside of Denver, CO.  Hoping to get ~2k worth of BTC.

Needs some work estimated at ~$1500 at local mechanic - and a lot of it can probably be done by someone good with cars.

The power steering is leaking. The driver and passenger windows do not work and are currently held up with tape. There is a small plastic piece that broke off that the bottom of where the glass sits on. There is some clear coating peeling off on portions of the exterior (see images). Other than that the engine runs fine and a brand new battery. Willing to take it into a mechanic of your choice and settle on a fair offer. Kelly Blue Book puts the price of this car in extremely poor condition around $2000.

~200K miles

The white stuff is tape residue

31  Economy / Speculation / Conspiracy to shake out weak hands? on: March 28, 2013, 10:02:46 PM
From: Xeanu
Sent: Monday, March 25, 2013 9:35 AM
To: "Weak-hands Shakeout" distribution list
Subject: 3/22 shakeout

To all coalition members:

Congratulations on last week's shakeout!  This was our best one yet.  I'll follow up with the date and time of the next planned event.

Just a few observations:

1.  Remember, the timing is critical.  All times are posted in GMT, so PLEASE make the correct translation to your local time.  (There's a tool called Google that can help you with the time conversion.)  Also I recommend that you use, or similar services, to coordinate the timing down to the second. 

2.  No CHEATING!  In order for this to be effective, no pre-selling or pre-buying!  You must sell at the exact moment designated, so that we can maximize the effectiveness of the coalition, and maximize panic in the Bitcoin Market.  This is the honor system - we can all do very well together, by increasing our BTC, without taking from each other.  Remember, the more panic we create, the better off we are.

3.  Remember, our objective is not to cause people to doubt the validity of the currency, but to shake out the weak hands, who panic at every little drop.  Last week was ideal for this, due to the recent price run-up, and the number of noobs in the market.

4.  Gondorg suggested that we adjust the rules.  We're open to ideas.  For now, the rules remain the same:  You are to sell at the designated moment (no sooner), and stay out of the buying market for four hours, to let the panic take hold.  At that point, you can buy back only 10% of whatever amount you sold, for each of the next 10 hours.  After that time, you can buy whatever you want.

Please report your stats to me by the end of the day, for the 3/22 shakeout.  Once I have everyone's numbers, I'll publish them back to you.  Personally, I was able to increase my holdings by 12.6%, at the same investment level!  I also bought in another 5% at the discount prices.  I'll share the btc quantities in my follow-up report.

A fool and his money soon funds my retirement!

I'm sure most of you have noticed by now that bitcoincharts is down.  Does anyone know of any alternatives?  Looks like sierra chart is dependent upon the website hence making it unusable as well.

We had a kernel panic within the MD layer of the linux kernel. Service will be restored within the next 7 days.

In the meantime, you could assume the price to be either $0.01 or $100 so we can see some interesting rallies and have fun until you can look at boring numbers again Smiley

36  Economy / Economics / Barclays: Yet another reason why Bitcoin > Banks on: July 02, 2012, 11:00:10 PM
At times, Barclays traders sought to affect rates on dates when interest-rate derivatives contracts settled, thus profiting more from trades, according to documents made public by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, one of the agencies conducting the Libor probes. Here’s an e-mail about the three- month rate from a senior Barclays trader in New York to the London banker who submitted the rates: “Hi Guys, We got a big position in 3m libor for the next 3 days. Can we please keep the lib or fixing at 5.39 for the next few days. It would really help. We do not want it to fix any higher than that. Tks a lot.”

Bankers submitting rates responded to such requests as if they were routine: “For you, anything,” and “done ... for you big boy,” according to the e-mails. Not that the efforts went unappreciated: “Dude. I owe you big time!” one trader wrote to a Libor submitter. “Come over one day after work and I’m opening a bottle of Bollinger.”

Barclays traders also coordinated with counterparts from other banks. In an instant message, one Barclays trader wrote to a trader at another bank: “If you know how to keep a secret I’ll bring you in on it, we’re going to push the cash downwards. ... I know my treasury’s firepower ... please keep it to yourself otherwise it won’t work.”

38  Economy / Trading Discussion / deposit problem! on: May 27, 2012, 02:26:27 AM
so i made a mtgox redeemable code for $15 about 1 minute ago on my account and went to deposit it into

i inserted the code at and hit submit and it got an error. I then realized for some reason says "We accept Mt. Gox BTC
redeemable codes ONLY. DO NOT USE WITH USD CODE" so apparently they do not accept mtgox usd.  which is my own stupid fault for not looking at that beforehand.

now I am trying to use the code i generated to re-add the usd to my account on mtgox but am getting the error "This code cannot be redeemed (non
existing or already used)"

So what gives?  How could this code have already been used if kronos does not accept mtgoxUSD?  

I have contacted mtgox about the issue but dont expect any response till monday.  the support button at doesnt does not work so I have no idea who to contact on their end.

 hoping some representative of or mtgox sees this and can shed some light on this issue.
