1  Economy / Goods / 16GB Unlocked Nexus 4 For Parts - Auction starts at $40 - Touch Digitizer is BAD on: May 24, 2014, 09:56:01 PM
Hi, I'm selling my old Nexus 4. It's broken. I'm sure most people here know what it takes to fix it.

The phone motherboard, cameras, speakers & antennaes have been tested. I fitted all of it inside another working Nexus 4 to test it. It reads SIM cards and places/recieves calls just fine.

Two things are bad with it:

1. The digitizer is unresponsive.
2. The built-in bottom microphone module outputs noise. (Does not work)

I'm auctioning it off starting at $40 with priority shipping between $6 and $12.

The phone can be bid on or bought at eBay, here. International buyers welcome.
2  Economy / Service Discussion / WE CAN BUY AT WALMART WITH BTC AT LAST! (Gyft) on: March 25, 2014, 07:53:19 PM
Check it out, pretty awesome.

It's about time they add walmart to their list of merchants!

(No, I'm not promoting them, and I dont get any money from them.)
3  Economy / Auctions / Auction - on: March 10, 2014, 03:14:01 PM
I bought it a while ago planning to make it into a website hosting various bitcoin tickers, but plans have changed.

Wondering if anyone is interested in this domain.

So, auction starts at $14 in BTC.
4  Economy / Digital goods / [WTS] Automated Bitcoin/Litecoin/Dogecoin Dropbox wallet stealer on: March 09, 2014, 07:32:02 PM
Not really. I just posted this to see how many people here are secretly looking for terrible black hat software, in comparison to a control thread. Shame on you if you clicked this! Let's see how many views this will have...

Disclaimer: I have not programmed any such software so I consequently do not have anything for sale.
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / **Breaking news** Satoshi Nakamotos identity NOT revealed on: March 07, 2014, 12:51:20 AM
Really, His identity was not revealed. Poor guy doesn't want to have anything to do and is probably at risk right now because of those dumb articles.

Such threads make me want to rip my hair out.

6  Economy / Scam Accusations / Very suspicious site, May be password stealing on: January 18, 2014, 05:25:51 PM
A certain respectable forum member around here pointed me to that site to investigate if it was real or not. I registered, and after registering I realize that the whole site is basically static files with the only actual server sided code being the login form and registration form. All that the site contains is a "refer other users for free BTC" form.

It raises large suspicion for being a scam, in the form of a password stealer that may be used to try and compromise web wallets and, especially, since they ask for your BTC address, Potentially even wallets.

Anyone know anything about this?
7  Other / Meta / I'm not sure if my thread should be in Off Topic or Project Development.. on: January 13, 2014, 02:37:12 AM
It's this thread.

It's about a project i'm working on. It's not necessarily bitcoin related, but it could be used to aid mining, so I'm not sure. Someone suggested I move it there but I'm not sure if I should.

I just don't want to move the thread to Project Development if it's deemed irrelevant and just moved back.

I'd ask a mod but this forums' so big I dont think they have any time for petty problems. Smiley So I make this thread instead.

9  Economy / Computer hardware / [WTS] IBM ThinkPad X41 Tablet PC, 1.5GHZ, 1.5GB RAM, 32GB SSD FOR $95 on: December 13, 2013, 05:16:59 PM
I'm looking to sell my old IBM X41 Tablet PC via forum auction. Starting auction price is $95 converted to BTC at the time of selling. Shipping price not included.

1024x768 12.1" Display
Wacom Digitizer with approx 40k x 40k resolution and 256 levels of pressure sensitivity. Great for drawing.
Bluetooth With EDR
1.5GHZ Pentium M (Marginally faster than most Intel Atom CPU's)
GMA 900
32GB IDE KingSpec SSD. (Approx 80MB/s Read/Write. Very snappy.)
Windows 7 Ultimate (My own OEM license.) W/Photoshop CS2 and other standardsoftware pre-loaded.
OEM slim-cell battery. (Quite old, and extremely small, so it only holds a charge for about 25 minutes.)
OEM Wacom Digitizer pen, It is old, so it has had the case broken a few times. It was repaired with tape.

Optionally, I may also include to you a Ralink-based Mini-PCI Wireless card, which has much better Linux and aircrack support than the default Intel 2200BG.

CONDITION: The computer is in FAIR cosmetic condition. The biometric fingerprint scanner has been damaged, and the keyboard has some keys deformed, the mouse buttons are also rather lose. However the full keyboard module can be replaced for approx $10 off ebay. System and all the ports, however, is fully operational.







DEMO VIDEO OF WHAT YOU WILL GET AND BOOT UP: (Laptop was folded in tablet mode for the video.)

I can ship to US and canada, and the buyer must pay shipping. Shipping to most of the US and canada should always cost less than approx $30.

For price calculation, The package weighs 4 LB 10 OZ, and is shipping from Fort Lauderdale, 33309, Florida, USA

Escrow use REQUIRED.

You will send the BTC to the escrow, and once he has received it and confirmed that to me, I will ship the package.
BTC MUST be released to me after one of the following events happen. Whichever comes first.
1. The buyer notifies the escrow to release the money. (Soonest)
2. The tracking number of the package has updated to show "Package delivered" and 5 days have passed without hearing from the buyer.
3. 20 days have passed since shipping of the package without hearing from the buyer.

For delivery evidence to escrow, I will record a video of packaging the item, showing the laptop turned on and functioning RIGHT BEFORE sealing the box, and continuing to record handing off the box to the USPS associate, and them giving me the receipt.


10  Economy / Service Discussion / Are Passwords Compromized if you get an email? on: September 25, 2013, 07:38:19 PM
Recently, I have recieved the following email from

Does this mean that someone tried to login, but they got the WRONG password?

Or does that mean that someone tried to login and they got the RIGHT PASSWORD and then were denied by because of suspicious activity?
I know that google does this. Quite often when I login to my Gmail from a tor exit node, as well as But does do this?

It's a DEAD IMPORTANT detail that doesn't make clear! Is my password compromised or not?!
11  Economy / Service Discussion / BitSpend CEO Justin Whelchel just gave us an update on: September 23, 2013, 07:28:43 PM
As we all know, BitSpend was a company we all loved. A company that would take our bitcoins, and in return, order products of our choosing from any website and have it delivered to us. Allowing us to purchase our products online with ease and convenience.  As they operated, they did this job incredibly well. I speak from first-hand experience, As I myself have ordered over a grand of products using BitSpend.

2 months ago, BitSpend employees suddenly reported that their primary bank account and the funds within have been seized. Shortly thereafter they updated us to only tell us that their personal accounts, too, have been seized. Reason why is currently unknown. Quite possibly, for "Unauthorized Money Transmission".

Ever since, we have been left in nearly complete silence. Nobody has reported recieving any orders from BitSpend anymore, and nobody has reported receiving refunds anymore. Nobody has heard a word from BitSpend, in any way shape or form.

Recently, The following has been posted on BitSpend's subreddit, including a quote from Private Messages exchanged between the OP and BitSpend owner, Justin Welchel.

""Hey Justin, If you don't share some information with us in the coming days, I will assume you have planned this as a scam all along. Whats the deal? Are you starting to process refunds or not?"
then he said
"Yes. Losing my house, my job,m my income, and almost my wife and kids all so I can now live in a shitty apartment trying to find a way to feed my kids, THATS a genius scam! I have not posted ANYTHING because I dont know when I will have it all. I have made financial plans with my wife to begin sending people back their money starting in November, but until I know for sure when that will be I wont begin giving dates.Look, I spen t 18 hours a day working on Bitspend, I gave up my job, my savings, everything... now I have nothing... so if you want to start throwing out a "scam" threat, it will be pointles"
another message
"I guess you have no other option then. I will in turn be left with no option but to begin proceedings for Bitspend to enter bankruptcy. I had hoped to avoid this and to be able to earn enough money personally to do the right thing and pay you guys back, even though as a company all I have to do is file bankruptcy... I wanted to get you guys refunds so I personally took TWO FREAKING JOBS so I can EARN MONEY TO PAY YOU BACK as I felt is was something good people do. If you feel you need to sue Bitspend, I cannot stop you. I will now be ceasing to use this account, as I feel that now that you have told me you are bringing legal action against my company, I will no longer have any direct contact with you."

What do we make of this?

12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [POLL] What do you think is the cause of Primecoin's crash in value? on: September 19, 2013, 11:35:09 PM

I find these things very interesting so I can not help but create a poll as my previous poll has had an acceptable success.

Perhaps it may help shed some light as to why this is happening, or may otherwise yield at least somewhat interesting results. Smiley

The poll will run for only 7 days, so that the data collected will represent only the present time, and so that it will not get messed up in the future if opinions change.

13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [POLL] Opinions about the Primecoin GPU Miner on: September 18, 2013, 06:58:56 PM

As many of you know, A while ago, mtmlr started working on a Primecoin GPU Miner, and he received a lot of money in donations from people, where when they donate they receive early beta access to the miner.

The beta-access period is now over, and the miner source is released, but the miner doesn't seem to work quite yet.

Some people are very mad about this, Others are not. I don't have any feelings of my own on it, because I didn't donate anyways.

So I've been wondering. What is are your feelings on this situation? Take the poll so that we can see what are the collective feelings of this forum are. Smiley

Note: Please not hating on Mtmlr or anyone else here. Hate posts will be deleted. Create your own thread if you are mad.

1x Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter & Itanium

16  Economy / Services / VmWare-Based VPSs for rent, $35/mo 2xCPU, 2GB RAM, 80GB HDD, 1 IP, Windows/Linux on: September 01, 2013, 12:35:57 AM

I am renting some unused space on my personally-owned rack-server. The rack-server is located in an air-conditioned, battery-backed-up, and professionally controlled data center in Washington, USA. I am renting this unused space as two VPS'es, as I have two remaining unused IP addresses.

These are not OpenVZ VM's. These are VMWare VM's with full access to CPU, RAM, and HDD resources, as well as kernel control. You may also run Windows.

Specs and prices. (TWO SLOTS AVAILABLE)

VPS SLOT 0: Intel Xeon 2.5 GHZ X 2, 2GB, 20GB HD, 1 IP, 100GB Bandwidth, Windows/Linux/Mac OS (If you know how) Can Be Installed - $40/
VPS SLOT 1: Intel Xeon 2.5 GHZ X 2, 2GB, 80GB HD, 1 IP, 100GB Bandwidth, Windows/Linux/Mac OS (If you know how) Can Be Installed - $45/

Since we already pay the server hosting costs just for the sake of the other VPS'es, I have my pricing significantly below market prices.

OS's I can Install and (optionally) configure basics for you:
Ubuntu Server
Windows XP/7 (Not Server) (You must provide A license)
Windows Server 2000/2003/2008/2008R2/2012 (You must provide A license)

Setup Time: Probably 24 hours or less. You will not be charged for the setup time. Your 31-day period starts the moment you are given access to your VPS.

My Plan: After receiving a payment, I will install your OS of choice, and after completion you will be given access to the VPS, Once you are given access the VPS is yours for exactly 31 days. After which you either pay again for it to remain yours, or I delete all data immediately and put it up for rent again.

Escrowy: If desired, The BTC payment to me may be held in escrow (John. K) for the 31 days, and after your service expired may it be released to me.

Terms of use: Nothing illegal, or grey hat. If I find out you are doing something illegal, you will be subject to immediate termination of service. Also, try not to mine PrimeCoin. But if you have to. It's fine.

This is not a commercial business. I am just personally renting space on my server.

If you have any comments or suggestions.. feel free to leave them.

Otherwise, if interested in renting one of my VPS'es, leave a message here also for public record.
17  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / What happened to mtrlt? Did he just scam us of 75 BTC? on: August 21, 2013, 08:10:55 PM
As some of you may know, mtrlt stepped up to make a GPU miner for PrimeCoin by creating a thread announcing that he will work on a GPU miner, in which he put a "Donation address" "that will also get you early private beta access to the miner". [1][4]

It has now been one month and three days since he created the thread [1], he has 75 of our BTC[2], and his last update of any sort was given out on August 14, 2013, 07:10:25 PM, Six days, and 20 hours ago. [3]

We still have no GPU Miner.[1] We might have been BFL'd. [No citation needed]

Since he was accepting "Donations", it means that he technically CAN legally run away with the BTC, AND the GPU miner and we would have absolutely nothing to prosecute him in court with. Although I am doubtful he will do this. It is possible that he is mining with his GPU miner for a long while, stashing large amounts of coins to then dump, and THEN maybe release the GPU miner. It is also possible that he had a heart attack and died mysteriously. Or maybe there never existed a GPU miner to begin with?

I place no opinion on this subject. Just being objective here. I am just making this information clearly available and understandable to the public.

You decide on how you feel about this situation.

18  Economy / Goods / [SOLD] Selling off my entire DSLR photography rig PRICE LOWERED on: August 21, 2013, 06:20:39 PM

I have gotten a bunch of photography stuff all centering around a Nikon D3100 just a couple of months ago to have a try at photography, but unfortunately it has proven to be a failure with me so I am considering selling it all off.

These are the following items, and listed are their conditions. I am not selling items individually. Buy all or none. Selling for 5 BTC or best reasonable offer. Place offers below.

Good photos can not be taken of the camera because this is the only good camera I have.

Camera & Camera Specific Accessories:

1 Nikon D3100 body WITH CAP - CONDITION: Like new, with the exception of some minor scratches on the dial. The scratches are not noticeable unless if looked at closely, and are a result of other objects in the bag it was stored in scratching on the surface. - 1835 Shutter Actuations as of last week (Expected lifespan is 20,000-100,000)
1 Nikon EN-EL14 Lithium Ion Battery - CONDITION: PERFECT. Came with the camera.
1 Nikon MH-24 Battery Charger -  CONDITION: Like new, few surface scratches. Came with the camera.
1 SanDisk 32GB SDHC Class 4 SD Card -  CONDITION: PERFECT. Bought it separately, off of amazon when I bought the camera.
1 6-ft Remote Shutter Release Cable w/Locking Bulb mode For The D3100

1. Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-70MM 3.5-4.5 G ED Lens WITH CAP - CONDITION: GOOD, Some scratches can be seen. Some minor particles of dust inside can be seen, as expected with all zoom lenses. OPTICAL QUALITY: Prestine
1. Vivitar 85-205MM 3.8 MACRO FOCUSING AUTO ZOOM VINTAGE F-Mount LENS WITH ORIGINAL VIVITAR LENS CAP.  NO. 22540871 CONDITION: Absolutely pristine, NO DUST, NO FUNGUS, Lens is CRYSTAL CLEAR. No oil on diaphragm. OPTICAL QUALITY: Prestine


All filters are 67MM threading for the 18-70MM Nikkor.

I will ship from South Florida after I receive a message from the escrow (John K) that the payment has been received. Shipping fees will have to be paid in advance without escrow or you can buy your own shipping label and send it to me for printing.

Upon shipment, I will record an in-depth video of all the items for sale whilst at the post office, including the packaging and sealing process as well as me handing the box to the employee using my iPhone for Escrow evidence of a legitimate transaction. Scammers beware.

19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / WARNING suspicious behavior with mtrlt on: August 14, 2013, 07:28:15 PM
Hey guys.

I posted in mtrlt's new thread some facts about how long he has been working on the GPU miner, the money he has received, and what wage he would be earning at, all in a neutral wikipedia-esque "post the information and don't put your opinion" manner, yet it has all been deleted, including the mention of deletion. Now the thread is closed.

For your curiosity's sake, This is the post:

Fun Fact!

You have been working on this GPU miner for 3 weeks now. Provided you are working full time, which is considered to be, in the USA, 8 hours daily, you have been working with a wage of 51.1 USD/Hour, earning a current total of 75 BTC/8,588 USD. (Current Mt.Gox rate)


I respect Mr. mtrlt, and I do not want to point fingers. But something is up when someone who has received nearly $10000 from donations in less than a month is deleting posts that reveal to the masses the information in a simple understandable manner.

Be careful guys. Legit guys can be legit for a long time, but once they got enough power even the best people can turn evil. I legitimately hope this is not the case, but if it is everyone must be informed.

20  Economy / Goods / [SOLD] iPhone 4 32GB GSM Unlocked Worldwide Ready SHSH Blobs Included Jailbroken on: August 13, 2013, 07:00:59 PM
Hello, I have recently decided that I want to sell my iPhone 4, to get an android instead. I am looking to sell it for   + Shipping to you from the US ZIP code 33314.

Escrow Policy:
I will only begin the process of resetting the phone, and packaging it once an escrow (John. K.) informs me that they have received a BTC payment for the phone. YES. That means we do have to use an escrow.

After payment, I will do another quick demonstration on video of the phone functionality at the post office, and then package it in the post office, and show the destination address on the video, and then show the post office employee taking the package from my hands, and this video will be given to the escrow for solid proof of delivery. I am very serious about providing an honest trade without being liable on my side.

I have also taken a video demonstration of the phone's functionality and condition. Please watch in HD. Click below to view.

It is an iPhone 4, 32GB Model, Factory Unlocked GSM model. Suitable for international use or use on any US SIM-CARD based carrier. Good IMEI.

CONDITION: It is MINT. Noticeable scratches on the front and back, but the phone operates fully. I use it on a regular basis.

WHAT YOU GET: Only what is pictured is included. This means that the charging cable will NOT be included. The iPhone will be restored in iTunes and will NOT have any of the jailbreak tweaks seen in the photos or videos installed. Instead it will run pure stock iOS 6.1.3. OPTIONALLY I can reset it to a jailbroken iOS 6.1 at no additional price.

I also have it's SHSH blobs for iOS 6.1. This means that after a restore in iTunes to iOS 6.1.3 you can still downgrade to a jailbroken iOS 6.1 at any time. These are only useful to technical users. Link to SHSH blobs for this iPhone.
