Holding a bitcoin meetup at The Garage Café (车库咖啡) in Zhongguancun. As of today, The Garage *officially* accepts bitcoin payments (it was only unofficial before), and it'd be great if everyone could come show their support and buy a drink with their BTC (although RMB is okay, too Tongue). I'm trying to arrange some bitcoin developers to do small talks about what they are working on, I'll update with arranged speakers soon! If you or anyone you know is willing to be a speaker, please let me know.

4  Local / 挖矿 / 关于ASICME和李笑来/BITFUND.PE之间的关系 on: August 14, 2013, 11:59:01 AM
比特基金声明  - 2013年8月13日

针对近期关于ASICME颇具争议的上市一事,比特基金特此作出声明如下:

的确,比特基金及李笑来先生曾一度支持ASICME的工作,杨曜睿先生原本承诺一定的股份换取李笑来和比特基金的支持。

但是,李笑来先生后来发表声明表示比特基金与此次上市毫无关系,这使一部分人感到困惑。事实上,尽管双方曾经有过口头的协定,比特基金仍一直在不断请求ASICME出具一份双方可以共同签署的合同以巩固我们的合作关系,然而ASICME从未能向我方提供这样一份文件。

而后,ASICME在我们不得而知的情况下上市,从未与我方商讨过这一事宜。

因此,我们在此特意声明,比特基金与ASICME的合作就此结束,比特基金将不再与ASICME有任何关系。

谢谢。
5  Bitcoin / Mining / Would you buy a wireless internet router with built in ASIC chips? on: August 02, 2013, 11:27:51 AM
1) You use a router anyways.

2) It's always plugged in and powered on.

3) It's always connected to the internet.


What if you could buy a router that double functioned as a bitcoin miner? With, say, 1 GH/s? Would you buy one? How much would you be willing to pay?

11  Economy / Services / [Relocation] Come to the fastest growing Bitcoin hotspot in the world - China on: May 28, 2013, 02:14:09 PM
DISCLAIMER: I am not a professional relocation agent, visa agent, or real estate agent. I offer none of the above services myself, rather my service is to help make the transition as smooth as possible.

I am an American living in Beijing, China - which is currently one of the fastest-growing bitcoin hotspots in the world. In an effort to bring even more international interest and growth to the Bitcoin scene here, I would like to assist those who wish to relocate to Beijing. It is my hope that by bringing more passionate Bitcoiners to this city, we will be able to focus our efforts on getting more local businesses to accept BTC as a means of payment, as well as creating new and innovative projects.

Who is this service for?

This service is offered to serious takers only. The ideal customer would be a full-time Bitcoiner (by which I mean somebody whose income derives mainly from BTC, or has enough BTC to not have to work) who is not tied down by a job which requires that they stay in a specific location. It can be someone who would like to work digitally from Beijing, or a passionate bitcoin evangelist who would like to come here and work with the existing community, myself included, on building a new alternate economy in this city and country.

Due to Chinese visa restrictions, one would most likely come here on a tourist (L) visa, valid for 6 months to one year, and allowing the bearer to stay in the country for 90 days at a time. This means every 3 months a trip must be made outside of the country. Popular "visa run" destinations are Hong Kong, Mongolia, Thailand, Cambodia, Japan, and The Philippines. Of course, you could go anywhere.

Why should I hire you?

You could, of course, figure out and arrange everything on your own. This service is for those who would rather not fuss with figuring out all the finer details of moving to a new country (arranging accommodation, buying a metro card, cell phone, etc). By hiring me you will be right in the middle of the Beijing bitcoin scene upon arrival. I will do my best to introduce you to other bitcoiners and get you started in the community here.

What do I provide to you?

As I said in the above disclaimer, I am not a professional agent of any sort. I cannot handle the processing of your visa, the purchase of your plane ticket, ship your things here, or find you an apartment. What I can do is guide you through this process and make it as easy as possible for you.

INCLUDED

-Walk you through the process of obtaining a Chinese visa [Visa fees are not included]
-Arrange for initial accommodation when you arrive. This could be a hotel or a hostel, it depends on your budget/preference [again, my fee does not cover your lodging, I simply make a reservation]
-Airport pickup in a hired car. No trying to figure out transportation or waiting in a taxi stand for an hour. As soon as you are out of the airport you will be on your way to the hotel. [My fee includes hiring a car]
-When you arrive I will give you a Metro card preloaded with 50 RMB (good for 25 subway trips to any stop in the city) and a basic cell phone with SIM card. If you would like a smartphone and/or a data plan, I will help you in obtaining these at the best price when you are here.
-I will offer BTC -> RMB currency exchange (0% fee) upon arrival [to the extent of how much cash I have, I guarantee being able to exchange min. ¥1000 RMB worth]. I can introduce you to other bitcoin users for further exchange.
-I will introduce you to an English-speaking real estate agent (one with negotiable fees, less than the 1 month's rent that is standard here) who will help you to find a suitable apartment.
-I will take you to the bitcoin-accepting café which was featured in the CCTV report about Bitcoin, and introduce you to the bitcoiners who hang out there
-You can choose two days (not necessarily immediately upon arrival, also not necessarily two consecutive days) in which I will act as your personal guide to go anywhere in the city you want, acting as guide/translator. This could be used to visit tourist sites, or to run important errands.
-I will make myself available as much as possible to answer any questions you have about living in China, both before and after arrival, and try to help you as much as possible with the transition.

---

This is a tentative post and will be updated as I iron out more details. The price for this service is BTC20, and is non-negotiable. Serious takers only, please.
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Finally! PDF version of "Electronic Payment Systems for E-Commerce" on: May 25, 2013, 09:05:35 AM
Electronic Payment Systems for E-Commerce.pdf (89.0 MB)
Download Link | Mirror 1 (AnonFiles) | Read it on Scribd

Authors: Michael A. Peirce, Hitesh Tewari, O'Mahony Donal

Amazon Link: http://www.amazon.com/Electronic-Payment-commerce-computer-security/dp/1580532683

Quote
Publication Date: August 15, 2001 | ISBN-10: 1580532683 | ISBN-13: 978-1580532686 | Edition: 2 Sub
Generally society has been moving towards electronic payment systems since the 1970s, but it is only the arrival of the Internet and its vertiginous growth, that has made possible the recent advances in this area.

For the unaware, this book basically describes Bitcoin years before Bitcoin itself even existed, and many claim that the authors, or one amongst them, may be the mysterious and elusive Satoshi Nakamoto. The reasons behind making this book digital and free are several:

1) The book is no longer in print, and it is both expensive and hard to find. This makes it more accessible to the masses.

2) Hopefully this book will aid people in understanding some of the features of bitcoin, and help others in thinking up new and innovative features and technologies.

3) The text of the book could be cross-analysed with the writings of Satoshi Nakamoto to determine if the writing styles match up, which may lead to a match on the identity of Mr. Nakamoto. Software like JGAAP (http://evllabs.com/jgaap/w/index.php/Main_Page) could be used to accomplish this.

4) Seeing as the book is out of print, and it was never a bestseller anyways, it is unlikely that the authors will suffer negative financial repercussions from this text being made public. It is our belief that information should be free.

Keeping in line with the decentralized nature of bitcoin, please re-host, re-share, and re-upload.

13  Bitcoin / Project Development / Sending Bitcoins through SMS on: April 07, 2013, 07:09:16 AM
Here's an idea I've been turning over in my head, and because I have neither the time nor the know-how to make it happen, I would like to make it public in the hopes that someone else sees the same utility in it as I do and decides to make it happen.

Reddit's /u/bitcointip allows users to send ANY other reddit user some BTC, whether or not the other person has a bitcoin wallet or even knows what bitcoin is. It does this by using the Blockchain.info API to create a new wallet for each user, and letting users control their wallets with a series of commands.

Is there any reason that this couldn't be done as an SMS service for cell phones? Imagine that I want to send my friend who has never heard of bitcoins a tip, it might work like this:

First, I send a message to BITCN or any other SMS service number. I could type:

Quote
send 3035550000 1.0 BTC

The phone number being the recipient's phone number. The service would then create a new wallet for the recipient, and send a new message to that person:

Quote
You have received 1.0 BTC from [my phone number]. Please reply ACCEPT or DENY.

Tips not claimed within 30 days would be returned to the original sender.

And, like all third-party applications, people would have to be aware that coins stored on the tipping bot wallet are not fully in their control, and for maximum security to withdraw regularly to a bitcoin address that they control.

The framework is already in place with the reddit bitcoin tipping bot, we know all the commands that are useful for something like this. Would something like this really be that difficult to make? I don't think this should even be done as a profit-making business, but instead as a utility for Bitcoin which makes it even more useful and increases the adoption even further.
14  Local / 中文 (Chinese) / 第二个北京比特币聚会 - The Second Beijing Bitcoin Meetup on: April 01, 2013, 09:31:51 AM
Dear Beijing Bitcoiners,

The next Bitcoin meetup will be held on Saturday, April 6th, at 6:00pm. We found a new location, The Garage Cafe (车库咖啡) in Zhongguancun, which will provide us a meeting room and will accept BTC payments for drinks. Please see the end of this message for the address and a map.

The first meeting several weeks ago was a big success, and we are expecting even more people to attend this one. That meeting was an excellent opportunity to meet other bitcoin users and to learn more about the technology, but we are hoping that this time we can discuss ways to increase bitcoin usage in China and what kinds of innovative things it could be used for here.

Address: The Garage Cafe (车库咖啡) Beijing, Haidian District, Haidian West Street. No. 48 Xin Ding Hotel (鑫鼎宾馆) Bldg. 2 (At the Southwest Corner of Beijing University, on the south side of Haidian Bridge). Go past the "China Bookstore" 中国书店 and walk down the pedestrian street about 100 meters. The cafe is at the end of this street.

You can take the subway on line 4 and get off at Zhongguancun station, exit A. Walk west past the next three roads, about 400 meters.

If you are lost, please call the cafe at +86 10 8262 7127

16  Economy / Marketplace / [ANN] IJustWannaBuy.com first e-Commerce site in China to accept BitCoin payment on: April 01, 2013, 07:54:17 AM
Note: I am not a representative of IwannaBuy, but they are new to the bitcoin world and I am helping them to post their press release here. We here in Beijing are very excited to finally have a local ecommerce shop accepting bitcoins!

Official Press Release:

Quote from: IJustWannaBuy.com
IwannaBuy first e-Commerce site in China to accept Bitcoin payment

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Online retail marketplace www.IjustwannaBuy.com (IwannaBuy) will from today be the first e-commerce
website in China to accept Bitcoin payment for products.

IwannaBuy, which specializes in providing pollution protection products for expats living in China, will
begin accepting Bitcoin payment, through BitPay.com, alongside traditional online payment methods
including PayPal.

IwannaBuy Founder Paul Afshar commented: “As an e-commerce company, safe, simple and reliable
payment solutions are important for our customers, and Bitcoin payment provides us with exactly this.

“Bitcoin’s growing user base cannot be ignored. We’re proud that, from today, we’ll be the first e-
commerce website in China able to accept Bitcoin payment. It’s an exciting development for us and our
customers.”

“Many of IwannaBuy’s customers don’t have online banking enabled for their Chinese bank accounts, or
have encountered problems with using PayPal or AliPay for online payment.

“In Beijing, this means they have problems buying the pollution products we sell, including indoor Air
Purifiers and anti-pollution masks, to protect their health from poor air quality in the city. Bitcoin
provides an easy to use payment platform for a medium sized company like ours.

“While Bitcoin payment is still a nascent and developing platform, we want to help pioneer its use in the
world’s biggest consumer market.”

IwannaBuy customer, Jake, an expat entrepreneur based in Beijing commented: “I’ve always wanted to
purchase products online in China, but without an international credit card, or online payment for my
Chinese bank account it’s always proved difficult.

“I’d definitely purchase products with my Bitcoins from e-commerce websites that accept Bitcoin
payment in China – hopefully IwannaBuy’s move will spur many more websites in China to start accepting
Bitcoins.”

END

17  Local / 中文 (Chinese) / 北京比特币聚会 - Beijing Bitcoin Meetup on: February 07, 2013, 11:02:59 AM
首先祝大家新年快乐!我是一个美国男生,我在北京上学。希望我们春节以后可以聚会,喜欢比特币的朋友们一起喝酒,一起聊天。你可以带感兴趣的朋友们来,这样可以推广比特币。

我住在海淀区,方便的话可以在这边见,我有一个咖啡馆老板朋友,想问他我们聚会时可不可以用比特币买东西。(抱歉我的中文不太好!)

-----

Hey Beijing Bitcoiners, is anyone up for a meetup sometime after Spring Festival? I'm a student in Haidian District. I have a friend who runs a cool cafe/bar over here, it's small and quiet and would be a great place for a meetup. I would like to talk to him and see about the possibility of us being able to purchase drinks during the meetup with BTC. Feel free to bring non-bitcoiner friends who are interested in learning more. If this gets even a couple responses we'll make it happen. Happy Spring Festival to everyone, enjoy your holiday!

更新 UPDATE (3月1号)

Quote
大家好,春节过去了,人人都回北京了,我觉得这个星期六(3月9号)举行“北京BTC聚会”是个挺好的日子。我刚刚跟2nd Place的老板说了,他说我们当天晚上可以举行活动。

地点:2nd Place - 北京市,海淀区,五道口,华清嘉园7号楼1602c。 (7号楼是麦当劳五道口店那个楼)
时间:3月9号 (礼拜六),晚上7点

2nd Place只有喝的东西,没有吃的。你可以提前吃饭或者订餐送到2nd Place。 人越多越好,欢迎带几个朋友来参加!他们不必是用BTC的人,这个活动是个很好机会可以学BTC是什么怎么用。 希望大家都会来,星期六见!

----

Hello, now that Spring Festival is over and everyone is back in Beijing, how about getting some Bitcoin meetup action going? I'm thinking this Saturday, 7:00pm, at the previously discussed Second Place in Wudaokou. I've already arranged it with the owner and he knows we are coming.

Location: 2nd Place - Haidian, Wudaokou, Hua Qing Jia Yuan Bldg 7 (the one with the McDonalds), 1602c.
Time: This saturday, March 9th, at 7:00 PM

2nd Place only serves beverages, so you can eat before coming or order food and have it delivered to Second Place. The more people in attendance the better, so bring some friends who use bitcoin, or are even just interested in it! The meetup will be a great opportunity for teaching people more about Bitcoin. If you wanna bring something cool for trade or barter, that's cool too!

Hope to see you there!

Tonight's meetup was a massive success! Thanks to everyone for coming! Some stats:

* We had 14 people total... more than I expected!
* Attendance was split about 50/50 between Chinese people and foreigners. Among the foreigners we had Swiss, Brasilian, American, and Hong Kong people in attendance
* About half the people who came didn't know much about bit coin but came to learn more about it.
* A lot of people learned about bitcoin tonight! Including some people who just happened to be at the bar, but not for the meetup.

We will definitely be having more events like this in the future... if you'd like to attend, please respond in this thread or PM me your contact info.
18  Other / Beginners & Help / Small actions can see real effects on: February 05, 2013, 02:52:27 AM
Since this is my first post on Bitcointalk, I'll make it a bit of a self-introduction as well. I am an American citizen living overseas in Beijing, China. As most of you probably know, the internet here is censored somewhat and most expats and tech-savvy Chinese people use VPN services to bypass "The Great Firewall of China."

I'm new to bitcoin, as well. I have been interested in it for several years, since I first heard about it, but only in the last couple weeks did I start really learning more about it and getting my hands on some BTC of my own.

I decided to contact my VPN provider, Astrill, asking them when it would be possible for me to pay using Bitcoin. They responded:

Quote
You can pay with Bitcoin right now. We can manually generate Bitcoin address for you. Please generate an invoice first, or tell us what you want to purchase and we will generate invoice for you.

Best regards,
Astrill Technical Support

I wrote back:

Quote
Thanks, I currently have several months left that I have pre-paid for, but when the time on that is up I will definitely be paying with Bitcoin! The Bitcoin community can bring a lot of extra business, it might not be a bad idea to make Bitcoin one of the standard payment methods when checking out.

There's a startup called BitPay which handles Bitcoin transactions for websites and businesses... users can pay with Bitcoin and your business receives the USD equivalent.

This morning I received another email from them:

Quote
Hello GGGGG,

We have successfully integrated BitCoin payment method via BitPay.com. It has been tested, and it's live now.


Best regards,
Astrill Technical Support

That went a lot better than I expected! Bitcoiners, seriously consider spending a couple minutes once in a while writing to businesses that you know and use, and let them know that there IS a market for BTC. Even if they don't integrate right away (like Astrill did), it will make merchants more aware of alternate payment systems and that there are people out there who would prefer to pay by bitcoin.

Thank you for reading.
