61  Economy / Trading Discussion / Arbitrage Opportunity at Bitcoin7 on: June 30, 2011, 04:51:35 AM
There is currently 433.7018 BTC priced at $16.50 over at This is the second such noticeable difference that I've seen in the last couple of days.

I'm wondering who would sell their BTC at $16.50 when they can get $16.85 or $17 at another exchange? Is this an attempt by the folks owning B7 to draw in new customers or is it an attempt by a idealistic Bitcoin supporter who wants to reduce the exchange single point of failure?

Has anyone on the forum taken advantage of these opportunities when they presented themselves? And, can anyone speak positively about their interactions on Bitcoin7?

I believe the "Why?" should be that it's your money. You own it. You should control it. Everything else is just how and what.

Is there any way to get an email as well as a notification? If I could set both, I'm never so far away as to not have one or the other.

The few security "experts" that post on this forum have tons of knowledge, but they lack social skills and common sense.

My two bitcents.

Wow. I'm really glad I watched that video.

Makes me wanna do SOMETHING for bitcoin like right now, it may be time to get serious folks.

Thank you.

I know people say difficulty isn't related to price, but my gut, as technical as it is, tells me that BTC is worth more than $17 right now. I don't think it's worth the $30 it peaked at, although it may be someday.

I'm not in a rush to get rid of my coins, so I'll wait for one of two things:

1) The price goes up to a point I'm comfortable selling at in the current atmosphere
2) More vendors begin accepting BTC and I find myself drawn to spend them

In the meantime, I'll enjoy watching the market Smiley

I'd like an option for I'm holding for now.

Now that you have completed your audit successfully, congratulations btw, does CBX have a tentative launch date?

I find myself very anxious to try out your service live.

Awesome work, keep it up!
69  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Has MtGox closed the free money exploit? on: June 28, 2011, 09:41:37 PM
*sigh* Read the other thread about it. It was a display bug/feature depending upon how you look at it. You could never get free BTC.

*sigh* Go away troll.

Quote from:
"One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument."

Mt. Gox transparency is a relevant issue for everyone here.

As his other posts have shown, Nagle is here to promote his own agenda. He isn't advocating transparency for the benefit of the Bitcoin community.

I do agree that Mt. Gox could be a little more forthcoming with information about their operation. I would say they're doing the best they can for such a small team, but they need to hire a dedicated PR person.
71  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: America is about to hit the toilet and probably with most of the world. on: June 27, 2011, 10:39:17 PM

I used to skip over articles like those. They were the type my dad read and kept warning everyone about imminent danger on Wall Street. As he slowly pulled his money out and transferred it over to gold and silver.

We were all suckers, and I like to think I learned at least a small lesson from that. If nothing else, read EVERYTHING you can. You never know when one of them will be right, and it will pay off to have put a bit away into metals (or BTC as the case may now be.)

Although, I do think there is a strong argument for BTC being next to worthless here in the USA if the dollar really does collapse. People will be too busy just trying to get by for a while for it to be valuable as an exchange medium. Food, water, ammo, and maybe metals again may be the way to go.

However, I can see the value of BTC rising globally as people look for an alternative to the crashing USD.

Me, I'm gonna play it safe and cover all my bases.

Thank you for the article. It was a decent read.

It's a known bug that MagicalTux is working on.

Don't feed the trolls.

Seems like an old friend is stopping by slush's pool again.
Not sure if it's just the pool being overloaded or an attack.

First time I saw the unhandled exception btw.

I've been seeing (hearing really as my fans die down and then wind back up again a few minutes later) a lot of problems communicating today as well.

Are we having issues or seeing another DDoS, Slush?

77  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: The REAL reason MtGox wanted to know your balance on: June 25, 2011, 03:27:25 AM
I am pretty sure mine was dead on. And it wasn't a round number either.

I think some big important internet council somewhere needs to designate comic sans as the official sarcasm font of the internet.

Dear Mr. Nagle,

I am not a financial expert, but like many here on this forum, I do have a lot of experience and knowledge in IT.

While your credentials and financial advice may be sound, as others have pointed out, your current website seriously discredits you. From the color scheme to the layout, it screams amateur and unprofessional. If you want people to take you seriously, it would be in your best interest to have someone fix it for you.

On to the matter of your post contents, if what you say is true, why would you bother to register on these forums and deign to even give an opinion to the Bitcoin community? I think we all have a hard time believing that you are doing it out of some notion of altruism toward your fellow man.

I think most of us here like Bitcoin, minus the occasional troll, and I wonder if you fall into the latter category. It's about more than just the economics. It's about the technology and the ideals that could potentially move us forward into something new and exciting.

If you don't want a part of it, please leave. No one will be sad to see you go. We probably won't be visiting your site anytime soon either Wink

I will only complicate you.
Trust in me and fall as well.
I will find a center in you.
I will chew it up and leave,
I will work to elevate you
just enough to bring you down.

+1 for the tool quote.

I think Mt. Gox will come back online eventually. I kinda don't think it'll be in 24 hours. I think these guys are just lacking in PR skills at this point.

Oh well, at least now I can wait and maybe see it open slow over the weekend instead of mad trading rush during my normal sleep hours.
