Yea... I is wanting the Mac version as well.

Sad face Sad

I'm pretty sure I'm constantly getting issues downloading the block chain. I don't start my client very often (pretty much only when I send out coins) and it always takes FOREVER to even start the download.

It's kinda nice to have the place all lively and active. Thanks for shaking up the place too!

Actually I am a cancer survivor.

I think you're very attractive, and don't let any of these assholes tell you otherwise. Trolls will troll.

If you are really a cancer survivor (can't believe everything you read on the internet), you're a brave woman and a spirited one. Enjoy the new tattoo. It looks awesome!

That would be pretty cool though.

So what time was that rally supposed to start?

I just don't get why if everyone is so confident Bitcoin WILL reach $20 again demand is so low?  The markets tell the story.  What people are actually doing is selling, not buying.  Put your money where your mouth is!  At least I have done that by selling.

You are telling us that you don't believe in Bitcoin but you are sticking around for... ?  for the lulz?

Yes I do find it an interesting project.

And the reason you are pushing your agendas is...?   (no need to answer this)

Stating a prediction is not pushing an agenda.  For me, this thread will be most entertaining when I bump it in the future.

ok.

tell you what.

i'll bet you 50 BTC that Bitcoin will exceed an exchange rate of $20 USD - without the openendedness of your blanket prediction:  that is, at some or any point within the next six months.

in escrow.

no PMs.  open on the forum.

in or out?

I think this is how every single one of these threads needs to be handled Cheesy

This depends on trader psychology. But as mentioned in my subscription service. We are seeing a short term bullish formation with a breakout of a bullish flag. I expect this to happen in the next 24-48 hours.

Two questions for you.

1) Is your subscription service free?

2) You seem knowledgeable about this sort of stuff. What would you recommend reading as an introduction to the sort of analysis you do? I don't have a strong background in either economics or trading, but I'd like to learn.

For those of you who (1) can't wait for a Mac build, (2) trust a random stranger on the Internet to provide you with their copy of Bitcoin, (3) want the changes I've made to Bitcoin (Which I hope is setting required transaction fee to 0 for creating transactions and relaying), and (4) use a 64-bit Snow Leopard system, I've posted my build up at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/16187822/Bitcoin-0.3.24-pc.dmg. I highly suspect that I'm the only person who wants this, but who knows?

MD5(Bitcoin-0.3.24-pc.dmg)= 6a55039636266301b445638c55fcacb3
SHA1(Bitcoin-0.3.24-pc.dmg)= 288493d1986f50cd0be7b0bbb1377dc103a8ca18
SHA256(Bitcoin-0.3.24-pc.dmg)= 89462c2889b76627e143caa974d13bffaf5c8bb59995d700538852ed430548cd


While I appreciate the effort... I'm afraid I don't qualify for #1 or #2.

Thanks for posting it for others though Smiley

EDIT: If you were among the first people to sign up for Camp BX, you do not need to sign up again!  We will of course take care of our first 270 friends, and automatically set you up for a 10% lifetime discount.



Glad to hear it, Keyur!

I think I was in within the first 100, and I look forward to when you guys hit your first 1000 and from there, who knows Smiley

Can we get an official Mac OS X binary up on the sourceforge and Bitcoin.org?

It is coming soon.  OSX builds are always delayed a day or so, because they are not integrated into our gitian build process like linux/windows.



Thanks Jeff!

I like to keep up with the most recent version, but I'm unfortunately not sophisticated enough to build from source on OS X. I tried, but I failed miserably.

I'd like to see a shirt/hoodie with the Gold Bitcoin logo that just says, "Ask me about Bitcoins."

One of the touted weaknesses of Bitcoin is having a single entity in control of greater than 50% of the network.

It enables the possibility of double-spends.
35  Economy / Economics / Re: Who is buying above $13? Manipulation or Market? on: July 06, 2011, 08:12:24 PM
Why so much hate though?  I can intelligently defend my product without getting upset when others view it negatively.  Emotion is the mark of amateurs and manias.

While you are somewhat correct that emotion is the weaker argument, it is a valuable argument nonetheless. Aristotle recognized that there were three main modes of argument, being ethos, pathos, and logos.

You have tried to use your reputation as a long-time trader, ethos, as a standing for your argument concerning the possible success or failure of Bitcoin. Others have come back and made very good arguments, logos, concerning the rates of insurance and guarantees and how it would be financially unlikely to create a better Bitcoin clone. Both sides have argued the various pros and cons of a government takedown, again logos.

But the reason that people get upset, the reason that they get emotionally involved with Bitcoin, besides just having money invested in it, is that it can be and is to many people an ideological revolution. It's putting the power of money back in the hands of the little folks instead of "representatives" that don't really listen. It's being tired of taking what most folks see as ridiculous fees, terms, and service agreements from those "insurers" that some people so desperately want. That, good sir, is the pathos argument. Its strength depends on the audience, and that audience is growing larger with each passing day as the typical models of economics and finances cease to work for some people.

Consider taking a look at CampBX.com if you're in the United States. They're a new exchange that has gone to a lot of trouble to prove to the community that security is a primary concern for them.

Another exchange that you didn't list is Bitcoin7.com. They're less well known than the two you listed, but they've risen to #3 in volume on several occasions and seem to be handling it fairly well.

As for fees, the majority of these exchanges are charging 0.3% right now, whether to compensate for the hack (Mt. Gox) or as part of a summer special (TradeHill). Typical fee rates are around 0.65%, at least that would be Mt. Gox's normal rate. As MikeCa said, look on their websites. They'll list the rate somewhere.

Dwolla charges a flat $0.25 for all transactions. Great if you're doing large amounts, not so great if you're looking to do a lot of small ones.
37  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: CampBX Launch - Free Trades for All Bxlievers! on: July 06, 2011, 05:55:47 PM
I hope this site gets some traction looks much more secure than MT Gox and looks better too.

Stop hoping and throw some dollars/coins up there. Even if it's small at first, every little bit increases their volume. I've got a few coins up there, and I'll likely be adding more as it picks up.
38  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: mtgox not stole my money. on: July 06, 2011, 05:51:11 PM
There are lots of complaints that can be made about Mt. Gox, but I honestly believe they're trying the best they can to deal with a business that became huge all at once.

MT, if I could suggest just one thing, it would be to hire a full-time PR person whose only job is to monitor IRC, forums, and email.

39  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Mtgox's 2 Factor Authentication: Yubikeys on: July 06, 2011, 05:05:10 PM
Very interesting. Thanks for the post and please keep us informed as you run it through initial tests.
40  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: Camp BX Hacker / Security Audit: Results on: July 06, 2011, 04:16:38 PM
It's a start, but security for a financial institution takes a whole lot more than an automated test. You need to think about things like managing an offline wallet, physical security for that wallet and for your servers, and background checks for employees. You need a non-automated inspection by an expert, who will actually take the time to look at your source code.

If you run a Bitcoin exchange and it takes off, you aren't just up against script kiddies.


Jim,
     Agree with you 100% - Coming from a corporate background we consider what you mentioned essential for security.

Our servers are housed in a physically secured data-center designed to survive F3 category tornadoes (if I am not mistaken), and have connectivity with three telco backbones.  There are two Caterpillar diesel generators for extended power outages.

We have identified primary and secondary owners for Wallet, and only these two people have access to it.  
Same goes for the database.

We also background check our employees as part of the security policy, and have a matching MSA with contracting firms.


Thank you,
      Keyur



Keyur,

I have to say that I feel you have done an excellent job in responding to customer questions and issues. Far more so than any of the other exchanges, although I will say in all fairness that I think TradeHill does a decent job as well.

It's good to see that your team is taking security very seriously, and I enjoy knowing that CampBX is taking a multi-tiered approach towards security. I'm obviously biased being in the United States, but it's reassuring to see you playing by all the rules and regulations. I think you guys are positioned to do very well.

I already have some of my BTC on your site, and I will probably have more in the future.

Keep up the good work!
