221  Economy / Securities / Re: Is Poker by Proxy too good to be true? on: November 17, 2013, 12:18:04 AM
The concept of staking pro poker players is decades old.  There's nothing inherently impossible about the high daily profits.

Like every bitcoin deal though, there's always the chance of a scam.

Interesting idea though.  I know some of these online poker guys consistently make bank.

You can hedge against bitcoin on Predictious.com.  Simply bet against bitcoin exceeding X dollar amount by X date.

Any plans for individual player performance bets to be added as an option?

Calvin Johnson to have +/- 117 yards
Marshawn Lynch to score 1 or more touchdowns
etc

That would be irresistable to bet on.

btcQuick with a big fat 0 bitcoins available for sale again.

Man oh man...

You really think ActiveMining will never get 3%?

I don't think so, no. I still believe it is possible, but I don't expect to ever get all coins I threw at ActM back. I never held a large position, so I don't really care though, some of my other bitcoin gambles have worked out better.

Seriously, you need to close this thread and stop looking at ActM-news constantly, you do yourself no favor.

I disagree with your view simply because I believe that ActM shareprice will reach an all time high before Christmas.

Not that we'd be able to sell at that point (transfered to AMC-TENDER) but that would be gratifying nonetheless.

I have tried purchasing bitcoins using btcQuick several times in the last couple of weeks, and even when they do have bitcoins available, it doesn't work.

Has anyone recently successfully purchased bitcoins from btcQuick?

The error may be the Google Checkout thing. 

EDIT: I finally got it to work this morning, picked up 0.5 BTC.

Dex, could you give us your opinion of where CipherMine will be in 6 months?   

On a scale of 1 to 10, where are we right now in terms of our mining capacity vs where we want to be when all of our rigs that have bee pre-ordered are online and hashing away?

No one knows about the order for sure. Pure conjecture.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Lol price on BF right now is 0.0015. Up 3x in last few days.

Admittedly it's low volume, thin market, but I really don't think we will see price hanging around when we get live again and we are shipping and hashing. It will go above previous all time highs and if everyone is holding for the divs there will be a low supply meaning it will be a sellers market.

Thanks, I needed some positive news.

Selling your coins now if you could might be a big mistake. I prefer a few coins every month as dividend while keeping my shares. Not sure what BTC could be worth after 6 months but I bet it is a lot more then now.

Well that's how this whole thing was SUPPOSED to work, but it hasn't exactly turned out that way...

I just pray that in 6 months this will all be a distant memory, as our 0.01 BTC shares are pumping out a consistent supply of healthy dividends, and bitcoin itself is at $1000.

Is that too much ask?!   Cheesy
231  Economy / Securities / Re: [ActiveMining] The Official Active Mining Discussion Thread [Self-Moderated] on: November 08, 2013, 05:54:29 PM
All I know is it is pissing me off seeing BTC triple in value when a huge % of my bitcoin is tied up in this company and no machines are being produced AND there's no hope of share value recouping for the foreseeable future.  
232  Economy / Securities / Re: [BitFunder] btcQuick - Bitcoin Sales Service on: November 08, 2013, 05:44:18 PM
Wow, I'm done.

I have 17,990 shares.  PM me a serious offer and I'll transfer you my shares on bitfunder.  I never want to deal with this company again.
233  Economy / Goods / Re: Selling CUBAN CIGARS Full Boxes and Individual Cigars FOR SALE on: November 07, 2013, 11:36:24 PM
I received my box of Cohiba Secretos - GORGEOUS!

Product was exactly as described (box of 10 + 1 bonus), and included the nice touch of adding some portable humidor packets.

He must have shipped it the day I ordered because it got around the world very quickly. 

I would certainly work with this seller again on future cuban cigar purchases!

What a shame this turned out to be. There are always warning signs though, which in this case, involved an obvious avoidance of uncomfortable questions in this very thread.

I have now learned through experience here that no news is usually bad news.

I would say that if your bitcoin-purchasing company can't make money during an enormous bull market, then - yes - it's bad news.
235  Economy / Securities / Re: [BTC-TC] CIPHERMINE-PT - Industrial Mining & High Performance Computing on: November 07, 2013, 04:25:39 PM
Thanks!  Litecoin doubling this week can only be good for CipherMine shareholders!
236  Economy / Securities / Re: [Bit Funder] [btcquick] [Rising profits] on: November 06, 2013, 06:51:44 PM
Btcquick said they got bitcoin available 30 minutes ago on tweet. The operation seems OK. We need to wait for the dividends. But I think this time dividends won't be good because of the raising of Bitcoin.

Anyway, the operation is good, we are all good.

Dividends will not be posted for October as we were in the red, more info on this will announced shortly.

You're - WE'RE - in the red because you have failed to have any of your ONLY PRODUCT in stock during the time when everybody wants it the most.

Not only are you costing us money right now, but you've no doubt lost countess potential customers in the future with your embarrassing "0 Bitcoins Available" posting.

If I could cash out - even down 95% - I would. 

Investing in btcQuick is probably the worst financial decision I have made to date. 
237  Economy / Securities / Re: [Bit Funder] [btcquick] [Rising profits] on: November 06, 2013, 04:35:35 AM
Wow.

Get your ass on local bitcoins and BUY some bitcoins btcQuick. ,

Can you explain why all of the candidates for Time's Person of the Year are bid at 9.90?

Doesn't this mean that they're ALL enormous favorites to win?

Shouldn't they all be Sells at 9.90 instead, as there's probably no clear cut favorite?
239  Economy / Securities / Re: [ActiveMining] The Official Active Mining Discussion Thread [Self-Moderated] on: November 05, 2013, 11:12:04 PM
I'm sorry, but the whole "signed messages" thing has me stymied. I understand the results of signed messages (sending verifiable transactions) but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to do it? I have been using google to try and get some easy to understand information and how-to's about this feature, as I have heard a lot about it for a long time and realize its importance, but the only stuff I can find involves writing in codes and going in to json files etc. which I have no understanding of. Is there a "for dummies" explanation of how to sign messages? something non-programmers might understand?
It should contain;
1. clients that allow this function
2. step by step procedure for signing messages

even the btc wiki on it is way out of my depth.

I'm sure I am not the only one here, ANY help would be greatly appreciated


I'll give you the link to the video that knybe gave me when I had this exact question:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S88ciN9DsRk

Shares transfered to AMC-TENDER.  Take care of me, Ken!
