1  Economy / Services / ISO Good low cost sign printer that accepts BTC on: April 15, 2019, 05:08:43 PM
Trying to get some attention with some signs.  Been looking at signcheap and a few others...hoping someone here knows of a good printer that accepts BTC.

I've just met a psychedelic artist that will blow your mind.

I need people involved in the best art/chain projects to contact me.

I want to make him rich beyond his wildest dreams with the bitcoin community and beyond.

He is brilliant and has ideas that need funding.

I ask you to give me your best referrals guys...lets blow him up, you won't be disappointed.

I can't delete this but I'm re-posting it in off-topic, not specifically a bitcoin project per se.
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Using a single image for reply, what emotion does Bitcoin evoke in you? on: May 05, 2017, 05:52:17 PM
Hey all.  I'm about to give a presentation on Bitcoin later this month at an event called Pecha Kucha, which is a bit like giving a lightning version of TED Talks where you get 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide to get your point across.

I'm hoping for input in the form of images that drive home the core elements of bitcoin...the less text the better (none is preferred).

I've already been gathering some...but I'd like to see what the community comes up with here, and I will let you know if I use your contribution.  Thank you in advance!

I haven't posted in a while, but I've been a part of this craze since 2011, and condensing what I know into 20 slides with 6:40 seconds for the whole talk is an interesting challenge, like trying to explain particle physics in the same amount of time.  I say that in jest, because the first Pecha Kucha I attended was actually at Fermilab and two particle physicists gave speeches in this same format, so if they can do can I...or perhaps my parallel universe me, or whatever.

6  Economy / Scam Accusations / Possible Romanian Phishing attempt using "metatrading" domain. on: October 17, 2015, 06:10:19 PM
If you google the company, it is called Metatrader...the metatradING website is a phishing duplicate that will install a trojan.

I know because I got hit.  Then the guy used my BTCtalk account to advertise his scam.

If you clicked on a program and it looked like nothing are infected, get malwarebytes and run safe mode (assuming you're on windows).

They got in my cryptsy and withdrew all my funds rapidly (after converting everything to BTC), then deleted the confirmation emails.  I saw one of them before deletion and got notices that many of my other (coinbase, gemini, circle) accounts were being attempted (via my Authy two-factor app...get it, use it always).  

Two-Factor Authentication stopped them...use it with every account you put money in.

Be careful out there and change passwords regularly.

EDIT:  One of my accounts reports their IP as belonging to Romania. 

I don't know if they were using a VPN so they could have been from anywhere but this is the IP I had if anyone thinks they can help in any way:

7  Economy / Service Discussion / Cryptsy - Order Failure - Now resolved amicably, but mind your orders on: January 07, 2015, 03:09:47 PM
I set a sell order on the 28th for XPY at a price of 0.06 XPY/BTC and on the 30th, supposedly the price went above my 0.06 without selling my XPY!?

If you aren't familiar with an order book...the price cannot move beyond the order prices without first filling them, or at least that's how an exchange is supposed to work.

So technically, Cryptsy is failing at their primary job (the exchange of crypto-currencies), and they have not resolved my issue.

The last time the customer support rep responded to me, they said they would probably have me sell my order at current prices then refund me the difference, but then sent this:

Whatever you do , please do not clear the order until we have a solution and have figured out what happened
Once cleared we will have no proof the order was placed and will not be able to assist you"

This seems fishy, considering even a basic log of a chat can be recovered, so actual buy and sell orders open and closed on your system simply "disappearing" sounds like a load of BS.


Issue has been resolved amicably in that they honored my order.

Make sure you watch your open orders and the price, this is still the wild west and the onus is on you to get paid.
8  Bitcoin / Project Development / Game Idea - Basically a Cryptocoin filled version of Ingress on: November 27, 2013, 08:05:38 PM
I have no knowledge on making this happen for real...but how cool would it be if you could play a game like Ingress (which is already very much like a game form of Geo-caching), and yet when you capture things you get a payout in coin which you can also use in the real world to trade against bitcoin, etc.

Just a random thought...posted in a place where someone might actually take it and run.

If you actually make this...please feel free to share some of your mad profits with me for giving you the idea, cheers.

Please deposit here if you like this idea: 1KZeE1GU3ZBemiZAFBz81emgkeyusc3h8Z

I put this in the Technical forum...mainly because it would require someone technically inclined to do anything about it, if there is somewhere better I should post it, feel free to move it there.

If you outright steal the least give me a beta-test pass, lol.  (history of Ingress suggests Google stole the idea from someone else already).
9  Economy / Goods / ► Selling Mint 1 BTC Casascius Coin - Series Three on: November 24, 2013, 05:11:59 PM
This coin is in pristine condition and has been vacuum sealed to preserve it's Mint quality.

This coin was sent to me direct from Mike Caldwell (Casascius).

All Casascius coins are rare, and the intact ones are even more-so.  I have yet to have this graded, but I vacuum sealed
it the day it arrived (in a foodsaver bag).  According to the gentleman I spoke with at ANACS, this
was a good call on my part, and serves to protect the coin until it can be properly graded.

I will probably post pictures, but if you are serious about buying this, you know what it looks like, and this one is just
as shiny as the day it was struck, with absolutely no signs of oxidation.

I am asking 2.2BTC including First Class Flat Rate small box shipping in the United States, or 2.25BTC for worldwide shipping.

Also open to XRP, XPM, or LTC equivalents

Happy to use Escrow or simply direct payment with immediate shipping.

Please PM me if you are interested so I can arrange a payment address.
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Advanced (order book) trading for XRP using Bitstamp and the Ripple Client on: September 19, 2013, 04:03:19 PM
I found this tricky enough I thought I'd attempt a quick tutorial to share what I learned about buying XRP with the Ripple client.

I originally funded my Bitstamp account with BTC, traded it to USD, then converted it to XRP on Bitstamp at market price because I
didn't realize you could take the advanced route and get to an actual orderbook, just like BTC-E or any other exchange has.  

These are the steps to getting to the more advanced order book.  If you are familiar with linux, this reminded me of adding a trusted
source in many ways...except you limit how much trust you give.

Step 1.  Load Bitstamp with BTC...would probably also be possible with USD, but for this example, I'm trading BTC for XRP.

Step 2.  If you don't have one already, sign up for a wallet at  Once you have an account head back to Bitstamp, but keep Ripple up in another tab.

Step 3.  Hit the Withdrawal button on your account balance page in Bitstamp.  On the left, you will see various options, ripple being one of them, click on it.

Step 4.  When you're at the Ripple Payment screen, it says you have X amount of dollars and x amount of BTC the destination must trust this address...
with "Trust This Address" being a link, click on that link and copy the ripple address it lists.

Step 5.  Head back to your Ripple wallet, click advanced, and under Trust, click the "+" button.  Add the ripple address you just copied as the Name, and how much BTC or USD you want to send to the order book as your Amount, then Grant Trust.

Step 6.  Head to the Trade screen and click on Order Book.  If one appears, you've done everything correctly.  On the top of the screen click receive and copy your Ripple wallet address.

Step 7.  Go back to the Bitstamp screen and use this address to wire the btc to.  You will then need to confirm it through email.

Step 8.  Watch as funds arrive at your Ripple wallet almost instantly in the form of BTC, you can now trade directly on your orderbook, cheers.

So one of the people who followed these directions informed me that Ripple won't let him trust a gateway until he has XRP.  

I believe this can be solved by converting a small amount of BTC...say BTC0.01 into $USD on Bitstamp, then buying XRP (ripple), then send it to your new Ripple wallet address listed under the Receive tab in Ripple.  That should successfully fund you with enough XRP to go back in and Trust Bitstamp as a gateway...when he finishes doing this, I've asked him to report back so I could update this post.

If you happen to do it before he does, please post your results on this thread so we can make this easier.

UPDATE:  10/14/2013...

Bitstamp now also requires verification, which makes this whole process slightly more annoying, but once verified, you're good to go.  We have confirmed that the method I have laid out regarding buying a small amount with the Bitstamp client and sending it to your ripple wallet address will give you enough XRP to effectively Trust Bitstamp as a gateway.

So there you have it, the not so easy, but highly worthwhile method of trading XRP using an orderbook like BTC-e or Kraken (which now trades XRP directly...which was not available when I first wrote this!).

If you found this helpful I always appreciate tips:

11  Economy / Computer hardware / Burned out my 7950 fan, selling for 1.25 BTC shipped. (CLOSED) on: September 10, 2013, 11:14:34 PM
Subject says it all, PM me with serious inquiries.  Shipped = 48 contiguous US would be adjusted accordingly for shipping only.

1.25 BTC firm.

Oh, brand is Power Cooler, great card, just too much fan power is what I think caused the issue, had it set at a constant 80%, which is too much strain apparently.  I would swap the fan myself, but I've decided I don't care for mining and there are so many people with such a huge head start it's no longer worth it for me.

Happy to use escrow with John K.  Signature required, no PO boxes. let me know if I haven't posted in the appropriate category.  If this is supposed to be in marketplace, feel free to move as needed.

13  Other / Meta / Lookout for Impostors... on: July 12, 2013, 11:02:21 PM
So I logged in today to discover my email had been changed and a slew of messages and posts made on Wednesday the 10th (two days ago) had been posted in my name.  It doesn't appear anyone was scammed using my name...though apparently I now have 15 or so ignores...which I didn't have Tuesday.  Just a friendly heads up...use escrow for trades and verify it is in fact the person you are attempting to speak to.  It sounds like this guy was trying to buy forum accounts...which is odd since he obviously hacked mine indicating he really doesn't need it.  Anyhow, password 2.0 should keep them at bay till Moore's law is again proven right...then I'll have to upgrade again.
14  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / proposal: delete blocks older than 1000 on: July 10, 2013, 12:43:20 PM
I propose deleting all but the last 1000 blocks. this will keep the blockchain small and lean. as blocks build upon each other, older blocks are not needed. The only problem with this is if  there is a 1001 block chain fork which shoudl not happen.

I suggest banning the following trolls:


Why are they not banned yet?

EDIT: BCB agrees with me


My account was hacked...I did not write this...I have upgraded my password and am posting on as many threads as your backs and consider a more secure password...standard shit no longer cuts it.

10 Bitcoins : 1 Bitbar

Please know, I am only willing to conduct this trade via escrow with Hero member John K (johnthedong), or direct BTC to my wallet.

Please don't comment if you feel the price is too expensive. 

You don't want to pay what I'm asking, then don't, this is a legitimate trade, if someone is willing to pay me, than that is it's new price.
