1  Economy / Services / Renting Dedicated Servers and Colocation on: March 02, 2015, 02:22:01 PM
Interested in who offers rented dedicated servers with DDoS protection and/or collocation for BTC.

The ones im finding offer low end servers from the likes of OVH at 3-4 times the price which is a crazy mark up just to accept payment in BTC.

I need something with a bit more grunt like the OVH enterprise range for example.
2  Economy / Currency exchange / Australian exchange advice on: April 22, 2013, 07:31:01 PM
Ok guys i had a bit of a browse on where is easiest to buy Bitcoin and i have 3 options by the looks of things via Australian Domestic Transfer (but it looks like i need to verify first?) via Bank Deposit via bank deposit

Does anyone have experience with these three and what’s involved.  Are they trustworthy?

Im firstly looking to buy around $100-200 worth and at a later point may want to sell around 5 to 10 times that.  After that if im happy with how things work i may use bitcoin on a more permanent basis.  Anonymous would be nice but isnt a deal breaker for me.  I will be using my own wallet.

So im hoping some fellow Aussies may be able to give me some advice on this.
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / How to add large number of private keys to Bitcoin-qt on: April 07, 2013, 11:59:38 AM
Ok guys im trying to set up a donation system for a torrent tracker.  The site end has been setup so that users who wish to make a donation get issues with a public key to donate to and the site confirms the transaction went through.

I went to and created 100 keys and saved them in a csv file.

I then attempted to import the private keys to my wallet.

After much Google and wiki searching the first thing i tried was pywallet.  That appears to have done whats needed but in fact nothing happens to my wallet.

So next step i tried was modifying a command i found online to do it like this

tr -d '"' < /location/of/csv/file | tr , ' ' | while read number address privkey; do echo importing $address; bitcoin-qt importprivkey $privkey $address false; done

The addresses appear in the address book tab but not in the receive coins tab.  Test donations have been made and not received until the keys got added manually using the debug window.

Also tried the above command without the false and it seems to bog down after one or two imports and never finished.

Now i know there has to be a working way to import bulk keys but im at a dead end. 

Im running bitcoin-qt v0.8.1.0-g34d62a8-beta on a Kubuntu 12.04 system.

Any help or ideas greatly appreciated.  We really need to get this system working.  Adding Private keys one at a time would be a nightmare.


4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Import large number of addresses into wallet on: April 06, 2013, 02:32:02 PM
Ok guys im one of the team running a torrent tracker.  Due to massive PP issues a long time back we stopped being able to receive donations.  Mainly because PP seems to get to keep them more often than we did no matter what we tried (even selling legit stuff).

So we looked to bitcoin as an option after we had a server oopsie and had to fork out large amounts of ash on new gear.

The site coders have managed to set up the site end.  Now we can import a large number of public keys and the site gives them out when a user requests to make a donation.

The problem we have run into is importing those keys into a wallet.

Im running bitcoin-qt v0.8.1.0-g34d62a8-beta on a Kubuntu 12.04 system.

After much research i tried pywallet.  Which reports making changes to the wallet but doesn’t appear to actually do anything to it.

After more research we modified a script of bitcoind like this

tr -d '"' < /location/of/csv/file | tr , ' ' | while read number address privkey; do echo importing $address; bitcoin-qt importprivkey $privkey $address false; done

and then ran a single manual import to finish it off.

The addresses appeared in the address book but when test donations are made they dont register until i add the address manually using Debug window one by one.

So i need a way to either generate the addresses in the wallet directly or import a large number.  One by one is just an impossible workload.

I know there has to be a way otherwise anyone in e-commerce couldnt reasonably run using bitcoin.  People do.  So im missing something that a good week on and off wandering through wikis, forums and google hasnt found for me.
