1  Bitcoin / Armory / Trouble w/ Create Spending Tx / Manage Multi-Sig Lockboxes > =====TXSIGCOLLECT on: April 10, 2017, 04:08:31 PM
Using Armory ver 0.95.1 & Bitcoin Core v0.13.2

I made a 1 of 4 lockbox and three of the addresses were funded from the Amory wallet and another was funding from a fourth wallet not stored in Armory.

I don't recall if I selected 'Simul' but I did 'Fund from Wallet' for (3 address) with 1 transaction and sent bitcoin from the 4th address.

I did not use the 'Request Payment' procedure to Fund.

Click on 'Create Spending TX' nothing happens. (no window opens)

'Review and Sign' opens a windows but I don't have a Spending Tx to input.

Collect Sigs & Broadcast opens a window but I can't locate a =====TXSIGCOLLECT

Collect Sigs & Broadcast opens a window -  need a =====TXSIGCOLLECT

It seems like I've omitted a step or am missing a basic principle.

2  Bitcoin / Armory / Using Armory with a private blockchain on: March 16, 2017, 10:23:47 PM
We have a private blockchain using the latest Bitcoin Core Linux client in house and have one node mining all by itself and would like to use Armory wallet for Windows multi-signature wallets on client machines.

If I understand correctly, for client machines we can install the appropriate Windows version of bitcoin core on the clients and as long as the bitcoin client is configured to connect only to the private blockchain that Armory will connect only to the private blockchain.


Be aware that Armory connects to Bitcoin Core or bitcoind as a regular peer, not through RPC. As such, the bitcoin.conf requires allowing incoming connections from The following lines are example options in bitcoin.conf:

Is this a correct understanding or have I missed anything?

4  Bitcoin / Press / [2014 10 27] Bitcoin Conference - from oct. 21st on: October 28, 2014, 12:13:22 AM
2 1/2 hour panel discussion. - there's supposed to be another behind this, will look for it tomorrow.

Interesting take from a lawyers vantage on what banks think of bitcoin and how they are trying to adapt to it at apx. one-hour in to the video.

I don't think they bring up the actual word 'sidechains' but great broad discussion about bitcoin 2.0 projects. Along with good guidance they touched on mining, price, markets, valuation models around one-hour-forty-five minutes in.

6  Bitcoin / Press / [2014 - 05 - 21] HARVARD ECONOMICS PROFESSOR MAKES THE CASE FOR BITCOIN on: May 21, 2014, 11:27:40 PM

According to Rogoff, another plus for digital currency is that it could actually increase tax revenue, based on the notion that without cash, the government could finally track transactions, elimination the potential for tax evasion. While critics of digital currencies like bitcoin say it promotes misuse and illegal conduct, Rogoff says that it has the potential to do just the opposite, meaning that with increased tracking, illicit operations would no longer be possible.

I wonder if he read my post at Reddit last month:

If bitcoin proves to be the most efficient means of collecting taxes ever, there should be many benefits to efficiency never before realized. Eliminating the fraud, maybe all of a sudden it makes sense to not collect tax on food, fuel and charity for example. Once bitcoin becomes the most reliable reporter of income, IRS suddenly dumps big business and wall street accounting for the new sweetheart, bitcoin.

1. With Bitcoin as the major tax pool it is ultimately Bitcoin consensus that governs.

2. Bitcoin government will be project based. Bloating won't exist as projects reach end of life after returning dividends to sponsors and participants of the network.

- just dreaming.

8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Witty replies to bitcoin critics - post, critique and collaborate on: May 03, 2014, 02:56:20 PM
I like to try to bring a smile to the face of the people with whom I am attempting to influence and I often struggle at doing so. However, there's this great tool called Open Source where the community gets together to accomplish amazing things so with that in mind... post your replies to critics and let the community have a go at building upon your witty retorts:

Example: Shit Bitcoin Fanatics Say,

My own attempt on Reddit
[–]incisorcist 3 punti 1 giorno fa
The three gigantic bubbles, hacks, frauds, opposition of governments, etc that you mentioned- in what time period did that happen? Two years?
Your "currency", backed by the bright eyed myopia of naiveté, is unstable and doomed to failure.
The rest of us are watching a train wreck in slow motion, but we're normally used to doing it AFTER THE FACT. That's what makes this whole thing so fascinating-- you're still selling tickets for a ride.

***[–]ponziunit 1 punto 2 minutes ago
Personally, I will welcome you when you realize that the apparent train wreck is nothing more than the bitcoin locomotive clearing the tracks with the cowcatcher and that your viewpoint is that of a friend of the herd of corruption witnessing, yet not fully understanding the chaotic sight as an honest accounting plows through fakery and deceit. You will awake from this nightmare, and let me be the first to call out - Aaaaaaaaaaall abooooooard! Peace Train!

So Jesse Eisinger a Pulitzer-winning financial reporter and I'm not going to remain silent while he tries to crack jokes about my recently adopted "lifes biggest dream" am I? Anyway, if you believe my reply was witty enough pop over to reddit and give me an upvote please. Criticism welcomed (there's always an edit button).

Also, please share your favorite bitcoin fanatic saying in this thread for collaboration and critique Smiley

*** note about my reddit /handle PonziUnit - consider the 'ponzi unit' as the most speculative debtor, borrowing against price appreciation and who suddenly loses everything when price appreciation no longer covers interest on debts - the first domino of the collapse in other words.

existing subscriber base - Note: one subscriber got mad at Reggie in youtube comments and claimed he 'unubscribed' so let's show Reggie some thumbsup support and page views.

Reggie is well known: He regularly appears on CNBC,[2] Bloomberg[3][4][5] and on the Keiser Report[6][7] to discuss his research and opinions, and has also been interviewed on CNN[8] and BBC World News.[9][10]
10  Bitcoin / Project Development / How would humanity interface with a Karmacoin ? on: October 19, 2013, 11:27:29 PM

Basically a Karmacoin owns a share or block every time a new human says thank you. Mining has to adjust and handicap participation. Spam detection for missing opportunities. Anonymity is allowed by change of address. Reputation is transferrable. This puts surveillance in the hands of individuals as well as government. We watch the watchers. Karmacoin so pervasive that even GOVERNMENT can't avoid it.

Here's my speech: If it's being built, own it.

- lol, no, basically karma coin is every time a human says, thank you. and if that's a different human, (spam detection) you solve an equation
- a little kid doesn't stomp in mr wilsons garden, that's a share...
- make our own prism, and track it w karma coin
- any thing the data keepers have on file incriminates their abuses with those files
- power to the people
- I stayed away from bitcoin in the early days because of the bad stories I'd heard about assassins
- the realization that I could give 1 penny to anyone who I deemed in need, anyone who entertained, who i wanted to support... and that 10 million others could do the won the war over the assassins.

Motivation: Perhaps I'm just being a realist but IF indeed we exist in a surveillance society, shouldn't we at least have fair and full access to the data?

Doubts: So karmacoin would have to retain a nuetral bias. It would look for commonalities in a person without broadcasting a name or other personal information. Is this even possible?

Mandatory: Algorithms live and die through the mining industry based on decencies, respect, moralities, integrity,... etc. Inputs to karmacoin must allow for very evolving evolution.

Something like Bitmessage would integrate nicely. Hope you enjoyed some daydreams.
11  Economy / Economics / Antifragility or robust? Nassim Taleb on fragility, centralization,.. on: March 26, 2013, 11:51:09 PM
Quote  Nicholas Taleb: Antifragility is something that likes volatility and likes variation, likes turmoil, likes stress—up to a point. The opposite would be robust. Robust is like a rock. It doesn’t care. Diamond is perfectly robust. What is antifragile gains from disorder and may even need disorder for fuel

Certainly seems that bitcoin gains from disorder and there is plenty of fuel.
12  Other / Beginners & Help / interacting w/people these days: the first reply in my head screams 'Bitcoins' on: March 24, 2013, 04:43:41 PM
Someone says: 'how's the weather?' and I want to answer 'at least I got a rainy-day-bitcoin'.

Someone cusses out their credit card... Bitcoin!

Another complains about bank fees, bounced checks, debt... Bitcoin!

Criminals, banksters who double and triple sold single assets, essentially counterfeiters who are now far enough from the scene of the crime they dare enforce austerity on innocents for their own negligence?


If there must be a cycle of borrowing ans spending within humans grant maintenance of that cycle to something not subject to the whims of the short cycle, the need for greed, corruption. As an aside, in the States for example, a corporation is allowed to be a citizen and one company supposedly ran as a candidate for office -- so I recall reading. Why is it that a corporation can exert its living influence potentially for many lifetimes but a human being is denied those tools? Why is it that a corporation is granted more control over the longer cycle and a human being is helpless? Let the machine, an algorithm simply responding to the cycle enact fair trade where humans have proven abusive time after time. The machine is self adjusting to the needs and cycles of humans through valuation. Bitcoin removes the smoke and mirrors yet allows a person to grant anonymous gift. It is public, yet respecting of privacy. What fairer justice sitting over finance than an open sourced algorithm? Bitcoin, Bitcoin, Bitcoin, Bitcoin, Bitcoin. There I said it, and hopefully I don't breath flaming Bitcoins down someone's face for the rest of today.

What's on your mind btw?
