DDOS is a bit overkill for banning purposes. More sophisticated method would be to modify the protocol just to deny multiple blocks in the row from the same ip.
But then again, there's no point if pool has two public ip's for broadcasting found blocks to the network. Every time a block has been propagated, other ip goes down and the pool operates with the non-banned ip.

BTC cashout is somehow malfunctioning. I'm trying to withdraw over 2 BTC with 1,4% fee but it throws me an error every time: "The maximum instant cashout is currently 2 BTC."
Should there be a withdraw limit with non-instant cashouts?

Volume, and confidence in an exchange.  
I know Gox has had it's share of problems and coinbase doesn't treat some people fairly but BTC-E and Vircurex have gotten hacked and had people fucked over.

I still dont have answer to my question.I mean like can we buy for low price from one exchange and sell for high at another exchange?

Than again why would people buy from me for a high price when they can buy for low from the very exchange I bought.

It's called arbitrage trading. It's very likely there are people practicing it already.

I've been waiting an hour for my deposit to complete. Is everything ok?
Earlier today I deposited a test amount of 1000 NXT and it was almost instantaneous.

Thanks.

Finally! Now it's showing up.

The whole article makes no sense. iBeacon is not even a currency.

Quote from: Wikipedia
iBeacon is a technology that enables an iOS device or other hardware to send push notifications to iOS devices within close proximity.

Seems like Primecoin difficulty is now at 10 Smiley

Are we expecting to see any significant growth in Primecoin's price?

I don't get it. What benefits does this offer as an authentication method?
And what stops the authenticating server from stealing your coins by not returning them on logout or session expiry?

I think calling it "Bitcoin 2" is a very bad idea. There already was a huge sh*tstorm about the scrypt based bitcoin client https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=292543.0

Surely, by the time that mining only gets you 1 satoshi in however many years that is, it will not be anywhere near viable to mine anymore. It would cost so much more in electricity to mine than what you would earn unless bitcoins price soars to the point where 1 satoshi costs hundreds of dollars. I guess that almost seem like a possibility at the moment the way the price is going but i don't think it will rise forever, it will collapse some day soon under its own weight without the needs of governments to intervene.
You do realise that miners collect transaction fees? In the far future the block reward itself isn't going to matter much anymore.

Some instructions would be nice for those who haven't followed earlier thread.
Anyways, I tried running and it crashes straight away.

Solo mining a block with my quadcore cpu.
Too bad I spent almost all 50 coins to Bitcoin lottery or something like that.

Well, early adopter issues I guess...
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: [Idea] smoother block reward decrease on: October 11, 2013, 02:22:15 PM
Like Primecoin? Smiley

Self-adjusting block reward – Bitcoin is known for its controlled currency supply algorithm, which guarantees that only 21 million bitcoins will ever be generated, as well as specifying the rate at which these bitcoins will come out. Primecoin follows a different path. The number of primecoins (XPM) released per block is always equal to 999 divided by the square of the difficulty, a formula which should converge to some maximum if the difficulty increases linearly. Given that Moore’s Law states that computing power increases exponentially, and the effort it takes to find a prime chain is exponential in its length, that is quite likely to hold true.
