But there is a general consensus, and a level of logical application, that there is manipulation going on, and I am just inquiring if it is gox doing it or if it is natural.

We bitcoin users are some of the most trusting, also the most paranoid.
among the smartest, yet also the most dumb.

Take my words with with a grain of bitcoin.

I'm glad that someone else with a higher post count voiced this opinion.
Higher post counts mean nothing.

So... now you're gloating that lots of people lost their coins and you still have them? Do you feel proud? Do you feel lucky? Should we be laughing if you fail the next "test"?

It's already bad enough, there is no need for a zillion topics rubbing it in to them. It has already happened, and the people involved are obviously aware that they made a mistake.

There is no need for rude and unfriendly comments like yours. Can we at least pretend to keep the community a nice place?

Storing your wallet in a safe way (both against theft and loss) is not exactly easy nor user friendly at the moment. Even for the tech-savy it's hard. Please contribute to solving this problem instead of kicking dead horses...

Yes, the bitcoin developers should take user-friendliness more seriously.

It is opensource, code something more user-friendly, and have it pushed in.
Though these are very important issues, these guys don't get paid for coding this software.

easiest thing to do is a bridge.

Another passcard service I found, with an open source algorithm and mobile support is:

I have used that before, works well.

Today I found this.
Maybe some of you knew it already but I didn't...

I find it interesting to know that a part of Google is working on this project!
Google can turn things into gold, just by touching it Wink

The Federal Reserve should not be allowed to print unlimited amounts of money, but we as citizens grant them the permission to correctify highly volatile markets.

I granted that institution no such permission. But if you did, please answer for the graph shown here, on the record of the Federal Reserve:




That is a chart of how much the Dollar has gone up right?    Cheesy

It's not like he can take our bitcoins away.
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Potential attack vector in generating Bitcoin addresses? on: July 05, 2011, 06:57:01 PM
The point is I am not talking about targeting one specific address and finding collisions, but about targeting "every address", just generating until you find addresses that hold BTC to some extent, and taking whatever it is you find on the way.
I think it is semi-possible.

while going for one address is unlikely to the extreme, just going after multiple random addresses is much more likely..

I was testing keygen and memory once, and I had bitcoin generate 1 million keypairs.
If a botnet was to do this scheme, I would think that there would be a good probablility of getting a small few. however the likelyhood of getting a single address with a large amount of bitcoins, is as impossible as attacking one address.

I also wonder how many addresses most people have..

13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Transaction Volume on: July 05, 2011, 05:48:30 AM
you can always assume that someone will be mining
Eventually, mining stops, since the supply of potential coins is capped at a number about 4x the current number in existence.

Mining will not stop. people will pay to mine (by paying the electric bill) just to keep their own transactions going, also to keep their investment secure.

If users A,B,C all have 0BTC, how do they import money into it?
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Where was Bitcoin in 2010? on: June 25, 2011, 01:37:34 AM
I think I was looking up Cryptography on google.. was looking for things like gpg or something..

17  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Selling a good portion of my bitcoins. $17.75 a piece. Accepting paypal. on: June 16, 2011, 08:47:07 PM
I am a fairly established member on the forum as I have been signed up and posting since January.  You appear to be new, what is your Bitcoin story?  Smiley

So is it the posting or the length of time here, that makes you more trustworthy?
18  Economy / Marketplace / Acquiring on: June 16, 2011, 07:44:20 PM
what does a worthless guy with no skills and no items of worth sell to get BTC?
19  Other / Obsolete (selling) / Re: [unlisted] on: June 16, 2011, 07:05:34 PM
well now I am gonna have to find something else to sell, to get into btc more.
20  Other / Obsolete (selling) / Re: eve accounts pack. on: June 16, 2011, 06:59:12 PM
Yep, this is true. Selling characters for anything other than ISK is bannable, as is selling assets (they're not allowed to be listed in char sales, with the exception of supercaps as they're hard to sell).

The fact that you've posted these here with names in broad daylight makes it very risky for anyone to buy them.

well I don't think I should really listen to friends anymore :|
