1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Boycott Newsweek's Advertisers on: March 07, 2014, 09:12:28 PM
Whether Dorian is Satoshi or not, this man's privacy was violated.

Please join me in boycotting the businesses that fund this behavior by advertising with Newsweek.  I will refuse to do business with any company that advertises with Newsweek until Newsweek has apologized and compensated Dorian for this disgusting invasion of his privacy and potentially putting him in danger.

The marriage between bankers and politicians resulted in the birth of the creature from Jeckyll Island 100 years ago today.  Let's hope for the sake of our posterity this abomination doesn't survive for 100 more.
3  Economy / Currency exchange / [SOLD] WTS 2 BTC for USPS Money Orders on: December 09, 2013, 03:05:17 PM
I'm selling 2 BTC at the Bitstamp exchange rate.  Doesn't have to be one buyer, I'm willing to sell smaller amounts to multiple buyers.  Escrow welcome, as long as you're paying the fees.  If we use escrow, then I will send the BTC first.  Otherwise, you will be required to send your payment first and I will send the BTC after your money order is received.  For those located in Southern California, I'm also willing to accept cash in person at Pechanga Casino, where there is plenty of security.

7  Bitcoin / Project Development / Encrypted Paper Wallet on: June 26, 2013, 10:34:08 PM
Does anyone know if there is a site/service/software app that allows you to print out a paper wallet that encrypts the private key with an option to also encrypt the public key?  Essentially, I would like to be able to store BTC offline in a paper wallet, that requires knowing a password or PIN in addition to possessing the paper wallet in order to access the BTC, just in case the wallet is discovered and then copied or stolen.

10  Economy / Gambling / Powerball Lottery on: May 17, 2013, 02:32:40 PM
Is there anyone outside the USA, or anyone else out there that is legally able to buy tickets, but is unable to do so themselves for some reason, or anyone just not willing to stand in line, that would be interested in having me buy Powerball lottery tickets on their behalf in exchange for bitcoins?  If so, make an offer that involves escrow and I'll try to work something out with you.  I'd love to see someone in the bitcoin community win it.

13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Potential Solution to Blockchain Bloat on: March 07, 2013, 07:23:42 PM
One of the concerns that some have about Bitcoin is the blockchain's inability to scale and handle an extremely large number of transactions as it gains more acceptance.

I'm sure it's probably been discussed before, but instead of transacting directly in bitcoins, has someone considered creating electronic currencies that are backed with bitcoins--similar to the way Federal Reserve Notes were once backed by gold?  As I understand it, under the classic gold standard, someone in the USA with $35 could walk into a bank and redeem it for an ounce of gold.  (Something along those lines anyway.  The monetary system of the USA has undergone so many tweaks and modifications over the years that it's difficult to keep track of them all.)  I realize that the term "gold standard" means different things to different people, but when I use that term it means that I, as an individual, can walk into a bank and redeem their paper for my gold that they are holding on my behalf.  In this scenario, dollars could essentially be considered to be "as good as gold".

In a similar manner, couldn't a bank issue an electronic currency backed with bitcoins that it held on reserve?  The bank's customers would be able to deposit bitcoins and then have an account that is denominated in the bank's currency.  Merchants that were willing to accept this currency would then be able to redeem the currency for bitcoins on a routine daily/weekly/monthly or as-needed basis.  Would it be feasible for this bank to have it's own separate network, with it's own separate blockchain without new units of its currency being created as an incentive to the nodes, but only transaction fees?  Would creating new blocks on the bank's network on a more frequent basis make this a better alternative for those who want quicker confirmations?  Could this bank have a wallet that was able to simultaneously interact with it's own network as well as the Bitcoin network to allow for quick and simple deposits and redemptions?  Would this offer former GPU miners on the Bitcoin network a chance to still generate income by processing transactions on the bank's network?

Right now it may not be cost effective to have an electronic currency backed with bitcoins.  However, if the number of bitcoin transactions continues to grow and transaction fees become mandatory and steadily increase, perhaps it would become cost effective to implement an electronic currency of some kind that is backed with bitcoins to relieve transaction traffic on the blockchain and reduce transaction costs for bitcoin users.
