2  Economy / Goods / [WTB] Land in South America on: April 16, 2014, 03:31:18 PM
Hello all,

I am looking to purchase some land in South America somewhere.  It is quite flexible on country location but I have in mind Peru, Argentina or Chille but I am willing to look at other areas.  Ideally I am looking for a plot of land that has not been built on but has the permission to be or that permission can be acquired. My desire for the land would be to be on a river source or located near the sea as I have a house boat and would be interested in mooring up there.

Initially this is a feeler put out to see what if any land people have available for sale and what legal requirements I would need to adhere by to do this all correctly and above board.

I would like to pay in BTC or PPC and am willing to pay a fair price for the land on offer.

So let me know what you have and how much you want for it.

Many thanks

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / SHA-256 ASIC NOT mining Bitcoin experience?? on: February 25, 2014, 10:55:07 PM
Hey all,

I am an avid Peercoin fan and activist i guess you could say, I own ASIC mining equipment and had them pointing at BTC for a while but switched to PPC quickly and made a LOT more out of mining PPC opposed to BTC.  Not only have I made more by mining PPC i genuinely believe in Peercoin with its POS / POW hybrid design for network security and energy efficiency.  Friendly bunch over at and productive active community.

Just wondering if any ASIC miners out there that do NOT mine BTC?? If so which coin do you mine and why??

4  Economy / Service Discussion / Vircurex account hacked on: February 10, 2014, 03:40:18 PM

Funds went here

I did not have 2 factor auth or Yubkey.

Just letting everyine know to be careful

5  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Help please!! Building static versions on Linux on: October 20, 2013, 09:00:16 AM

I could do with a little help understanding the final stage for me in a great learning experiment regarding bitcoin and altcoins I have been doing in my spare time.  

Before bitcoin I had never used Linux, was a windows user through and through but have switched over and taught myself a lot and enjoyed the whole learning experience.  So please be gentle with me for failing to be able to complete this task on my own.

Trying to build a binary for myself on linux (ubuntu) that will work on other linux installs without having to install the dependencies

I have installed the dependencies on ubuntu. Now when I build I need to pass the Static flag in correct? but I seem to not understand how to declare this correctly Sad

I am all for learning so please feel free to expand on things that are important areas to understand for me... or tell me where I am being a fool and making a meal out of something.  

Here is the sample makefile I have

Now it all works when building a dynamic library ... however changing in the makefile
it errors.. I am investigating this error cannot find -lgcc_s

Rather than changing in the makefile as well the values for LMODE, can I not pass this in on my make -f makefile.unix command?

Many thanks for your help and for reading, if you want more info or code etc just ask sorry I am not as experienced as many others and I am completely self taught so there may be some alarming gaps in my knowledge.

6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [Primecoin] How to build the client from source on Linux (Ubuntu 12.04) on: July 10, 2013, 06:44:53 PM
Hey everyone,

Had a few requests from people for help in building Primecoin from source on a linux OS so I decided to write up this handy guide so that everyone could do it themselves Smiley

If you have any problems then please post in this thread and i'll look into them or update the post as needs be.

Guide was requested as apparently you can get 3x more PPS building from source (maybe needs further optimisation?) but hope this gets some people some more coins.

8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [ANN] - New Coin Launch LSDoin on: May 28, 2013, 06:56:56 PM
Ok so I am fed up with all these exact copies of coins being released and very little if not 0 change has been made that has not been altered already or is just some variation of a pre-existing coin....

So I have been scratching my brain to develop a use of the blockchain that will be unique and capture the imagination of others....

I am proud to launch  LSDoin...

Genesis block will be mined TOMORROW at 12:00

  • It is NOT a coin (but its close) and is not valued or traded against any other currency.
  • Blocks are generated on the blockchain which will once the nodes are correctly setup will function outside the realms of our current time and space.
  • Key to this blockchain is that every time u find a block u are rewarded with the answer to the universe, which pops out of existence and then a new reality is created in its place ever so slightly different
  • difficulty adjustments are hence every block
  • block spacing is a little complicated as many different timeline forks can be created at one time and it depends how fast time is for you relative to other timeline forks
  • I was unsure if I could code a fixed number of realities... but I did it Cheesy so there is a cap of 42 realities.....except now u can all fork the source code and create infinite alternatives.
  • I have not and will not premine this blockchain in the essence of fairness to all.

Source code is available for viewing here

Windows -

Note with the finite number of realities hard coded it is important we do not get a 51% attack on the chain as this could spell disaster for all of us and by my calculations the blockchain would be completed at 15:00 27th May 2013
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Alt coin QT should have some extra features added on: May 08, 2013, 03:32:36 PM
Ok all these carbon copies of the bitcoin, litecoin or PPCoin codebase got me thinking as they really offer very little... but why doesn't someone experiment with the QT and add some kind of trade / exchange to the wallet client? surely that would set the altcoin apart from the rest? and make it an interesting development.  Like the RUcoin has a chat in it (apparently... i not got this client but will look into)

Just a thought... so discuss!!

10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [CLOSED] [DVC] ASCMDVCPT Cryptostock Investment on: May 05, 2013, 08:26:49 PM

This is the official thread for discussing the ASCMDVCPT. Please feel free to post any questions or concerns you may have in here and i'll do my best to answer as quickly as possible.

ASCMDVCPT - ASICMiner Devcoin  Pass Through

Asic Miner DVC Passthrough

DVC = Devcoin
BTC = Bitcoin

This offering is for units of a partnership to hold shares of  Asic Miner.  Each unit will represent 1/1000th of an underlying share.  This is in effect a Asic Miner Passthrough, but operating with DVC as the currency.  These shares may be held directly or a BTC based passthrough.  We will sell our units in DVC. Asic Miner pays out in BTC these BTC will be converted to DVC and in turn passed through to our stakeholders.   An administrative fee of X% may be charged for this service.  These payments will typically be made within a day or two of payment from the underlying assets, to allow us to space out the buy of DVC a bit to get a bit better exchange rates.   These payments will be done within two weeks of receipt of the underlying payment.  There are no voting rights as they are pass through shares.  More shares may be issued if we acquire more underlying backing shares.


When would payouts begin?
Payouts start on first receiving of ASICMiner shares dividend payout

Who owns the ASICMiner Shares?

User twobits holds the ASICMiner shares and is responsible for their safety and aquiring more if needs be.
I FuzzyBear will be answering any questions and passing on info from Twobits relating to the listing

12  Other / Off-topic / [CLOSED]Friend I just got into Bitcoins... how generous is this forum?? on: April 24, 2013, 04:07:20 PM
Hello all,

I have been round these forums for about a year now and have had many months happily lurking in the Alt-currencies forum board, but I recently got a friend into bitcoins and he was keen to see just what the community is like.  I told him not to expect much in the terms of Bitcoins from users on here as I have received a total of 0.25000003 BTC in my year of being here... :/ suppose it better than nothing Smiley

from my tips/donations address here ....

But I hope to be proved wrong!! I am sending him 0.1btc tonight when I go home as only have 1btc to my name :/ most tied up in altcoins that i have been trying to mine for a little while now, but don't want to scare him off with talk of all the million altcoins out there atm, so if you are feeling generous then please donate to him on this address here


any amount, however small will start to convince him (and myself) that all the users of bitcoin are NOT just hoarders looking out for number 1... I personally have donated thousands of PPCoins, and Terracoins over the year to many people as a way of saying thank you for various projects, and to new users, just wanted to see what the bitcoin community response was Smiley

any beef with this post?? well let me know Smiley don't want to upset others, or let people feel that I am a bad person (honest I am not Tongue) but how can some of the stigmas be overcome? how can I improve my posting and myself?

17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [ANN] - TRC WordPress E-Commerce Plugin on: February 02, 2013, 11:36:54 PM
Ok I think I'm there Tongue

Here is a link to the Github Repo:

You will need:
1) WordPress installed on your server.
2) wp E-Commerce plugin installed in wordpress
3) the terracoin.php file needs to be dropped in the 'wordpress/wp-content/plugins/wpsc-merchants' directory
4) an instance of terracoind running on the server
5) follow the setup instructions in the readme file from github for store settings to select terracoin as payment

I have set up a test wordpress site with the hosting company I use and am waiting to see if they can run an instance of terracoind for me on their server, but i have checked all the functionality and from the merchants side you can specify the port your terracoind is running on , so should be able to connect to the client and that is all that is needed to generate the addresses for payout from the shopping cart.

Check out my example site so far

If anyone wants to test if they are running a server with terracoind on it then please do and the first to post a link here to show it working will receive 200TRC Smiley
18  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Freicoin wallet out of sync? on: January 27, 2013, 09:21:44 PM
Hey all,

Was just doing a check up on all my wallets and noticed the Freicoin wallet is constantly saying the wallet is out of sync??

yet it has the last block being detected as being 15691 and was in the last hour.... is this just because the blocks are being generated much slower? or is there a problem with the network?

I even downloaded freicoin on a new comp and got to the same point and same situation...

anyone shed any light on this?

I am very proud to announce the code for the Terracoin Armory Client is uploaded into github and is ready for testing Cool

The source code is now available at GitHub:

The build process for Linux

1) sudo apt-get install git-core build-essential pyqt4-dev-tools swig libqtcore4 libqt4-dev python-qt4 python-dev python-twisted
2) git clone
3) cd ./TRC-Armory
4) make
5) python

Windows build....

Coming soon

20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / TRC Armory GETTING THERE... but little help pls... on: January 20, 2013, 01:59:44 AM
Ok so its been a long few weeks and I not been able to solely dedicate my time to the Terracoin Armory project, but last few days... lots of coffee, not much sleep.... and considerable help from the original Armory developer and I'm getting somewhere with this project Cheesy

So one of the things I HAD to do (as was about time and makes working with the Armory code soooo much easier) was get a LINUX dev environment setup.  Done that and running Ubuntu 12.4 installed on a separate computer now Smiley made my basic changes to the armory code and looks like it builds and works (need to make more detailed changes for views to not say Bitcoin but Terracoin) but want to test and send some TRC to an account on armory but need to have TRC installed on the linux box.... and my limited Linux experience is failing me here so if anyone can help me I will be eternally grateful...

Basically I just need help installing the TRC client on Ubuntu...

I was able to just download the TRC win32 binaries b4 and install on windows with a double click of the Terracoin-QT file... obviously this does not work in Ubuntu.. so I take it I need the original source files and build myself using the Terminal.... I'm looking into this now but if anyone has done this before and can point me in the right direction or let me know if i'm barking up a wrong tree and there is a simpler method then pls let me know...

Many thanks
