1  Economy / Securities / How Can We Create a Decentralized Exchange? on: September 23, 2013, 12:54:20 PM
With the announcement of the closure of BTC-T over potential legal fears I began to wonder why it would not be possible to create a decentralized exchange, possibly even placing it on the .bit or .onion DNS. Anyway, is this a possibility and what would be the difficulties and limitations associated with this?

One downside that I thought of could be the speed of buys/sells due to the potential for "double-spending".
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Bitcoin-Qt not connecting through Tor on: June 28, 2013, 12:01:30 AM
I have Tor running and connected on and I have adjusted the network settings for BTC-Qt to connect through SOCKS proxy at trying both v4 and v5 but it will not establish a connection to the BTC network. What could I be doing wrong?
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Terracoin, is it dead? on: June 19, 2013, 12:53:07 PM
Terracoin seems to have fallen off of planet Earth, the price has collapsed and the Terracointalk forums are a ghost town. Has this coin been abandoned and is there any hope for it to make a rebound? I noticed there was some talk of developers taking it over but just wanted to know if anyone on here knew anything.
4  Bitcoin / Mining / Can't enter GPU management in CGMiner on: June 16, 2013, 01:39:36 AM
I am using Ubuntu 12.10 and CGMiner 3.1.1. Every time I try to enter GPU miner to adjust settings I just get a black screen in terminal and the only way to get out of it is a ctrl+c. Does anyone have any ideas on why this would occur? Thanks.
5  Economy / Securities / Is it possible to buy stock in Avalon? on: June 14, 2013, 04:13:45 PM
ASICMiner has stock and bASICMiner has stock, why do Avalon and Butterfly not have the option to purchase stock?
6  Bitcoin / Mining support / Unable to detect more than 1 GPU in Ubuntu 12.04 on: May 16, 2013, 11:59:41 PM
So I had three of my 7950 cards running in Windows and one 7950 in Ubuntu but finally consolidated them to a dedicated Ubuntu 12,04 platform so I could get my main system back. However, I am unable to get more than one GPU detected and running in CGminer. I have followed all instructions at this site:

I have also substituted the AMD-SDK 2.7 for 2.8 and used 12.8 drivers instead of 13.1. Still doesn't work. I though maybe I needed the dummy monitors for the GPUs so I tried hooking up a monitor to one of the other GPUs, still only detects one.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
7  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Mining_Proxy.exe gimped my entire system on: April 16, 2013, 03:14:29 PM

I was trying to setup stratum with Reaper miner so I ran mining_proxy and eventually my video card which isn't mining crashed (I have a GPU which mines and a Firepro which runs my system). I had to restart the computer and when I did none of my mining software functions properly. Some of them don't function at all and the ones which do only work at half the rate. My Firepro also now has minor crashes consistently.

Does anyone have any idea on what could have caused this? I appreciate any help.
8  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / GUI Miner does nothing after clicking 'Start' on: April 15, 2013, 04:46:49 AM

Been trying to setup GuiMiner for terracoin mining and have had numerous problems with it. I am currently running GuiMiner-scrypt for LTC and working fine. Anyway...

Initially I had everything setup and once I would click Start I would get "ValueError: need more than 1 value to unpack". It didn't matter whether I tried to mine BTC or TRC. Now, I click Start and absolutely nothing happens. I can click Start a million times and it just sits there like I didn't do anything.

Here is what the Console is putting out:

2013-04-15 00:35:13: Running command: cgminer.exe -u username -p password -o -d 2 -l 1 -T

I'd appreciate any help as I would really like to be able to switch between LTC and TRC. Thanks.
9  Other / Beginners & Help / Guiminer shows up in tray but not on Desktop on: April 14, 2013, 11:43:43 PM

So, I run Guiminer-scrypt fro Litecoin and it works fine, I was running Guiminer for bitcoin/terracoin and it worked fine, but all of a sudden it no longer works. The Icon shows up in the task bar and in the tray but the GUI will not show on the Desktop. I have downloaded the latest files and still doesn't work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
10  Other / Beginners & Help / Legality of trading on BTC-e.. on: April 09, 2013, 07:23:01 PM
Hey, just wondering if anyone has any information regarding the legality of making trades on BTC-e from the US. I know there are various laws in place but not sure what applies or where to find them. I have heard that it isn't illegal to trade virtual currencies but maybe the issue arises when converting to dollars? Any information will be helpful.
