22  Other / Politics & Society / Internet Kill Switch to Be Armed by DHS on Monday on: July 11, 2012, 09:35:13 PM

"You know the internet kill switch given to Obama at the start of his Presidency, this is part of that infrastructure. On Monday they are testing it, or rather I should write "arming" it."

"If you plan to invest more than 50000 USD or equivalent on the long term in bitcoins, we need to know about you. In this case please use our verification system to get your account verified first."

Hmm... not sure if using mtgox is a good idea.
24  Economy / Speculation / A second bubble? on: July 10, 2012, 05:28:47 PM
Is it just me, or is the recent breakout above $7 a sign that we may be making new all time highs next year? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
25  Economy / Services / Cheapest way to mix coins? on: July 08, 2012, 07:41:11 PM
I've been using various services in the past to mix coins, but they're expensive ( 2% on average ).

Any ideas on a secure and cheap way to achieve the same thing? Thanks!

28  Other / Off-topic / I hate banks on: June 29, 2012, 08:36:47 PM
So I went to withdraw 3K from a local bank today ( not my bank, but a local one ). The request was denied with no information.

So I called my account manager and it turns out my account has a 2.499K daily limit that I cannot lift. So I wanted to try again, but the local bank said that "we cannot do it a second time today. If it doesn't go through the first time, we have a policy that we cannot try again in a single day." Um... but you have my ID, my account manager is on the phone, etc.... and of course, the entire process wasted 45 minutes of my time.


So now my Bitcoin contact is arriving on Saturday, and I don't have the cash, so now I have to wait another freaking week to buy BTC.

I. Hate. Banks.

PM me if you're interested in buying this. ( I'm switching my main lappy over to linux. )

Obviously, it's a non-OEM copy ( i.e. retail ), so you can use it on any computer.

Looking for $200 worth of BTC ( which is $20 less than what MSFT sells it for ).

I can ship it to you on a DVD, or I can just send you an ISO of the DVD via skype or something along with the CD key.
38  Other / Off-topic / I think I have a severe case of Bitcoinitis - help! on: June 08, 2012, 03:28:00 AM
Symptoms include, but not limited to:

- Severe addition to buying bitcoins, the more interesting a method used the better
- Constant checking of forums for new updates, to the point where it affects work and relationships
- Only wanting to hang out with other bitcoiners
- Wearing bitcoin T-shirts and decorating your car with bitcoin bumper stickers
- Little understanding as to why others don't "get it" and use bitcoin
- Only drink out of a bitcoin mug
- First thing you do in the morning is check, and then head to the forums
- Wonder why anyone cares about the value of your state currency anymore
- Plan out how you will spend your billions when bitcoin becomes mainstream
- Talk about bitcoin so much that your friends and family know you as "that guy who's obsessed with bitcoin"
- Believe real world women should be impressed that you are able to make money "on the dark web"

Where will this condition lead?? Is there a cure??
39  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Proposal: A Second Chain for Scalability on: May 25, 2012, 03:54:04 PM
Here is what I propose:

  • Every block in the block chain only pays out 90% 99.9% of its block reward. The other 10% 0.1% is kept on reserve in the block.
  • A second "balance" chain is created, which consists of transaction chain blocks hashed in a tree along with the usual nonce and a hash of the previous balance chain block.
  • Each balance chain block holds the balance of every non-empty bitcoin address up to the point of the last transaction block included.
  • The balance chain difficulty is 100X 1000X the transaction chain difficulty.
  • The node that solves a balance chain block recieves all of the reserved block rewards from the included transaction blocks.
  • In this manner, over time old transaction blocks can be forgotten since the most recent balance block plus the most recent transaction blocks are all that are needed to verify transactions. To keep the integrity of the network, of course, more history should be saved, but we probablly don't need more than a few thousand balance blocks while still being very secure.
    In this manner, the only data required for each full node would be: (1) block headers for all balance blocks (2) the most recent balance block (3) transaction blocks that occurred after the most recent balance block.

Do you think this scheme could work? I'm not even remotely an expert on this stuff, so forgive any glaring errors. Thanks!
