1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Honoring Hal Finney on: August 30, 2014, 02:33:47 AM
I was wracking my brain on a way to honor Hal, and this is the idea I came up with. I shared on Reddit, Twitter, and other places, but I thought I would share here too. I propose we rename 0.0000001 BTC as the Finney. Just as we honor Satoshi for 0.00000001.

Or using scientific notification:

1e-7 BTC = 1 finney
1e-8 BTC = 1 satoshi

You can see other comments/discussion on Reddit:

Not sure how something like this becomes official, but I guess if enough people use it, then it becomes part of the Bitcoin language.

I am moving draft date to September 29th 8 PM (EST), the last Sunday before the season starts. Hopefully this will give more time for us to gather more participants.

5  Bitcoin / Meetups / Montreal Version of Satoshi Square? on: August 07, 2013, 12:57:07 AM
I wanted to know if there was an interest in having a Satoshi Square type meetup in Montreal. I was thinking of holding it at Victoria Square during a lunch hour, 12-2pm, during the work week. I am aiming for the last week of August. Please let me know here or this thread at the Canadian Bitcoin Community: if there is any interest....

I think local trading here would be awesome, too. It's much better in person
8  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Building a bitcoin embassy! on: June 16, 2013, 05:05:09 AM
It might be interesting to offer courses on setting up wallet and other basics of Bitcoins especially in two streams, English and French, would be good.

seems it's still down, and no word on twitter either.
10  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Can MintChip Be Used To Do Fiat Conversions To or From Bitcoin? on: May 25, 2013, 08:22:00 PM
Actually according to Royal Canadian Mint it's not dead yet

" MintChip is still in the R&D phase, and we continue to consult with key stakeholders."

It would be cool if it could integrate with Bitcoin

Sorry I totally missed this thread before . Hope I can make the next one. Yes the Canadian Bitcoin Community HQ is in Montreal! Actually I'm starting to think most Bitcoin businesses are :p

16  Other / Beginners & Help / Canadian Tire Money for Bitcoins on: April 18, 2013, 01:09:19 AM
I am thinking of creating an on boarding experience that makes it easy for Canadians to get into Bitcoins. i was thinking of offering something like even trade in Canadian Tire Money for Bitcoins of same value. I would limit to max of $5.00 to limit potential fraud.

How it works:  New Bitcoin users send up to 5.00 in Canadian Tire money, and email a photo proof from a post office receipt. Bitcoins would than be transferred into the account. Do you think their would be appetite for such an exchange? I think it would be a great way to help users in Canada get into Bitcoins and get rid of some drawer space.

If you are a Canuck, I'd love to hear your thoughts here or on

Hi all,
Took forever to figure out why I couldn't post. Something should be entered in the help.

I agree, it should be emailed or written on the signup page. I had to use Google search to figure it out!
