21  Economy / Economics / Adding fiat currencies on Crypto Street on: July 30, 2013, 08:41:46 PM
Crypto Street just launched as a bitcoin, feathercoin and litecoin exchange and we don't currently support fiat currencies. In the midst of all of our regulatory exploration, it occurred to me that I never asked which currencies people actually want! We ASSUME it's USD, but it's a BIG world out there. So share your thoughts and we'll work at getting those currencies added.

Hello all,
We've posted on the forums a few times (as well as other places) and have garnered significant interest in our platform. There's been some buzz and some disappointments with us meeting our projected timelines, but today, I'm pleased to announce that Crypto Street is open to the world! Here's what we're about:
  • Three currency pairs to start with: BTC/LTC, BTC/FTC and LTC/FTC
  • Support for limit orders only right now until we get some more traction in our order book
  • NO FEES during this special public beta. No trading fees, no deposit fees, no withdrawal fees
  • Dead Sexy UI
  • Real customer support, just ping Yaniv by emailing
  • Fast execution for our cryptocurrency exchange
  • Multiple Cold Storage Wallets

There's a whole list of things that we'll start doing soon, but those announcements will come in due time. In the mean time, enjoy and please do provide honest feedback.

23  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Raw Transactions API... Am I using it correctly? on: July 25, 2013, 02:12:32 AM
Hi all,

I've been trying to work with the raw transactions API since it's crucial to something I'm working on and I'm encountering a problem.
createrawtransaction [{"txid":eb63d5d53cd906b5cf75a014e1bcf1c0198ae58d378d45dbfa15045ac89a38ac,"vout":0}] {1FQvMNzFJRf2nFJbhri2pWEVMqTtdLSCmA:2336129790}

As far as I can tell the above should work, but when I put it into the debug console I get the following error.
Error: Error parsing JSON:[{txid:eb63d5d53cd906b5cf75a014e1bcf1c0198ae58f378d45dbfa15045ac89a38ac,vout:0}]

I've a hunch I'm calling it wrong, however it looks well formed to me so I'm at a loss.

I'm using v0.7.0rc1-beta

Thanks for any information!

How did you pick / generate that txid?
24  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Who is Satoshi - but more importantly how would we know? on: May 15, 2013, 01:32:43 PM
So I get that Satoshi's identity isn't known and it MAY be a group of people and whatnot. But if Satoshi revealed himself today, how would we know that it was him? How can he prove that he's the creator of the almighty Bitcoin?
25  Economy / Service Announcements / [ANN] Crypto.St - The one exchange to rule them all on: April 24, 2013, 04:58:55 AM
Hello all,
I'm happy to report that we've opened our doors for beta access to our new platform, Crypto Street! We've combined the best features from all of the exchanges that you love and made them better. Imagine being able to finally take advantage of the awesome arbitrage opportunities that constantly exist in the Bitcoin world - or Litecoin for that matter. In fact, let's bring Namecoin and PPCoin into the mix as well!

USD? Fantastic! EUR? Even better! GBP? Coming soon! JPY? On it's way! All your favorite fiat currencies and all of your favorite crypto currencies can be traded freely. We have many, many deposit methods to make your life easy and a few withdrawal methods that we think you'll like as well.

We're slowly letting people in with hopes that they'll help us squash any bugs, but we've tested thoroughly for months now on our own. So join today and get yourself on the beta list.


Please post your feedback on this thread, or feel free to reach out to me at @shamoons. That's all for now, but we're stoked to show you more.

27  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / 2016 blocks = 14 days = 10 minutes per block - or not? on: October 05, 2012, 09:58:12 PM
So I was wondering and perhaps the technical forum is a better place for this discussion. But the network self-adjusts every 2016 blocks to set the difficulty to be equal to what it should have been to ensure that 2016 blocks took 14 days. So if there's more network power in a 2-week period, the 2016 blocks will take less than 14 days. The network will then adjust it so that the difficulty is harder so that the next 2016 blocks (at the current network power) takes 14 days. But the problem is that we already had the first set of 2016 blocks take less than 14 days. So in time, the average time to find a block is less than 10 minutes.

Am I missing something?

"Show new replies to your posts."

I see replies to every post I've ever made there. Is there any way to turn off some of the threads since I'm no longer interested in them?
31  Other / Beginners & Help / The Bitcoin Foundation in 2084 on: September 29, 2012, 01:55:18 PM
Just a hundred years has passed since the famed 1984 where a totalitarian state controls everything - even thought. In the midst of global financial turmoil and increased centralization, an idea is born and delivered to the world. Satoshi (Prometheus, if you will) gave fire to mankind. He gave them a way to transact beyond national boundaries and beyond the control of the centralized state. The most important tool for controlling the actions of men was now lifted away from the state and given back to the men (and women) that it was meant to control. For the first time in a very long time, people were now free to trade any way they liked.

Noble goals were stated and vested parties came together to form the beginning of something great - The Bitcoin Foundation. A non-profit with the express mission of standardizing, promoting and yes protecting Bitcoin. Industry (well, what little industry there was in a concept with a market cap of just over $100MM) came together with technology and formed a consortium to guide Bitcoin's future. Hurrah! We trust all of those involved and we laud them for their undying efforts. We know some of them and others we've simply heard good things about so we are comfortable and safe.

But in 2084 the world is a different place. Bitcoin, once the tool for freeing people from the arbitrary control of the autocrats, is now the tool to control people even more. The BCF has, over time, become more centralized and exerted more control over Bitcoin. History has shown any group that has power will inevitably seek more. Bitcoin gave power back to the decentralized mass and the BCF began to take that power over time.

The Constitution of the United States of America was an incredible leap forward in that it gave power to the people. But over time, the power found its way back into the hands of a few and left the people with nothing more than dreams. The power centralized itself into the Federal Reserve, the Corporatocracy and the have's.

I, for one, will support the BCF but will do so with the hopes that this time things will be different. This centralization of power will not be like all of the centralization of power schemes before it. I will trust in the spirit of Bitcoin and our mighty alien leader, Satoshi, who has gone back to his home world. I will use the BCF as the vehicle for me to get more involved in Bitcoin at large. I will focus on keeping a watch over the BCF and call them out when I disagree with them. I will support them when I agree with them. I will champion Bitcoin first, then BCF.

Good day.

37  Other / Beginners & Help / Why use bitcoins instead of USD or another currency? on: September 16, 2012, 01:10:48 PM
I've been in the Bitcoin world in some capacity or another for about 7 months now, and so I understand the ins and outs of the concept a bit better than the average noob. In trying to discuss the concept with others, the question comes up of "why", and it's difficult to answer. Getting into and out of bitcoin is a tad harder than cash so assuming I want to do nothing illicit and I'm not overly concerned with anonymity, why would I use it as a transaction currency? I can already use PayPal for transactions over the Internet. Let's not get into a flame war of how to PayPal Sucks because I'll be the first to agree.

For bitcoin to move beyond the niche market of the hoarders and investors, it must have real world applicability and that's what I'm trying to figure out.
