1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Altcoins You Think will Grow on: August 22, 2018, 04:39:07 PM
I think that this year will start a good growth ripple bitokin believe that good achievements will reach the coin of medichain!

I think Ripple is one of the altcoins that will grow so fast because altcoins have so far different platform features than others, Ripple is designed specifically for sending and receiving Universal Cross-Chain payments. in short, Ripple is an easy solution for exchanging currencies with one another.

Ностальгия. Люди были другие, вещи были другие, продукты были другие, страна была другая. Хочу назад за железный занавес, за ним уютнее было и спокойнее))).

Есть японская диета безсолевая. 2 недели нужно питаться определенными продуктами, меню расписано на каждый день. Соль исключена полностью. Отличный результат за 2 недели. Попробуйте.

Правильно - 5-6 раз, маленькими порциями, употребляя в течение дня до 3-х литров жидкости. Желательно, чистая питьевая вода. Конечно, сбалансировать рацион, объем порций около 150 гр. на прием пищи.

Надоело то, что сам готовишь. Так сейчас масса предложений в кафе. Завтраки на любой вкус и кошелек. Заодно и идеи подсмотришь).

Мне достаточно миллион в год. И на все хватит. Не нужно жадничать, но конкретную цифру нужно точно знать.

Накопить можно, было бы что копить. Откладывать половину зарплаты, отказывать себе во многом. Меньше есть, не ездить в отпуск. Или больше работать!

Каждая женщина, живущая в гражданском браке, считает себя замужней. Каждый мужчина, живущий в гражданском браке, считает себя свободным. Выводы делайте сами), за или против?

Ну все прям психологи! 4 нода, 7 лет, какие там еще рубежи? Любовь она вечна, а если ушла так и не было ее! Быть вместе ради ребенка, чтоб не травмировать его, это разве не любовь?

А вы просто любить детей не пробовали? Говорят помогает))).

Многие государства за хорошую мзду предоставляют такие услуги. Правда более завуалировано в виде вклада в бизнес или покупки недвижимости за вид на жительство.

Тут писали сервисы активации, в твиттере он прокатывает, а как быть с гуглом? Гугл не принимает номера с таких сервисов, видимо есть черный список номеров.

Под ферму надо искать помещение, подводить вентиляцию и оплачивать электричество. Плюс остаются риск кражи и выхода обородования из строя. Избежать таких рисков можно с помощью POS-майнинга.

The difference between BTC and Gold and so enumerable... where do I start... perhaps the biggest flaw in your analogy is that Gold doesn't have a hard-coded limit

@Mike Hearn
Excellent response, excellent comments and definately well though out response - I'm curious about this sentence

It's possible to build a dispute mediator that doesn't actually have the ability to spend the coins

I'll have to take a further look at the protocol, but if it's acheivable then I'd do it

Does it really just take "enough votes" to get the money sent back? If this is true, then the accountability doesn't just rest with one authority.... the block chain is the source of accountability? is that right?
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Accountability? on: May 21, 2011, 01:17:36 PM
I hear you, "clearcoin" and "mybitcoin" look like good services.

Hypothetically, let's say I had a service like those two - let's also say it was a massive service - then let's hypothesize it got hacked and 2100000 BTC were stolen.

I worry about the following scenarios

  • If they couldn't be reimbursed, then BTC would lose massive trust - value of BTC may fall
  • If they could be reimbursed in BTC - would this dilate the value of BTC?
  • If they could be reimbursed in any another currency - the remaining 90% of BTC's would be more valuable - users affected by the theft couldn't get back into the BTC market for the same price their BTC were worth at the time of loss
  • Would the police investigate?

Is there another solution that could provide accountability and not result in skewing the BTC network value? (i.e: could the coins be recovered, or flagged as "stolen" in the block-chain?)


A banks money is insured, they pay for that insurance - either to another company or to themselves - if the loss is too substantial, they get a loan to repay it, or go into administration, or get a goverment to bail them out. The trust they're after securing is not Joe Public, it's corporate accounts - and hundreds of years of banking practice and regulation ensures they don't lose money and there is a system of accountability.

Also, it is an impossibility to assume that if some Bandit rolled into my town and raided my bank - that the bank even has the option of reducing my balance - afterall, the Bandit raided the bank, not me - there are government enforced rules to make sure I (an individual or corporate entity) am a financially seperate entity from the bank.

Also, when I choose a bank - "trust" is not at the forefront of my mind - what is at the forefront are the facilities provided
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Accountability? on: May 21, 2011, 12:49:33 PM

Yeah that kinda goes part of the way, you'd need an option to upload/download your wallet - and (here's the biggy) - guarantee it's value in USD if it was lost or stolen


Yeah, that's where the niche is - a layer on top BTC that provides accountability and guarantees the safety of any BTC balance in BTC/USD/GBP/EUR if it is lost or stolen from the service provider


A bank is much more than what you describe, if the bank was robbed would you expect to lose your money?
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Accountability? on: May 21, 2011, 12:40:51 PM

There's a whole bunch of generalisations in what you're saying, and little room for edge-cases - for BTC to be considered as a "proper" currency, not a hobbyist/geeky thing, it needs to account for edge-cases in a concise way. Would you currently expect Goldman Sachs or any other big investment firm to invest in BTC in it's current form?

I wouldn't, for BTC to be taken seriously it needs a system of accountability - a process by which any serious real-world investor can be assured their investment is reasonably safe. I say "reasonably" because when I invest in the stock market I'm aware it could up/down just like BTC - I wouldn't expect that my investment could vanish because I happenned to install some dodgy malware

- Also, take any sample of people - and you can be assured that a percentage of them will always be stupid enough to buy from the dodgy ".cn" domain name Wink
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Accountability? on: May 21, 2011, 12:30:22 PM
I see what you're saying (about BTC being just like "Cash"), but this is another thing the average consumer won't "get"

  • It's virtual currency that can be traded over the internet
  • But it could be lost, destroyed or stolen just as easily as cash
  • BTC isn't like cash at all

Too many consumers this would seem like a backward step from regular money (why invest in BTC when my money's safer in my bank?) - i.e. the consumer doesn't have the choice of "Put this somewhere safe" or "Take it with me" - at the moment there is no "somewhere safe" and it's a little awkward to "Take it with me" - but still possible

I'm more concerned with the idea that a consumer should have the option to have their wallet hosted somewhere, and for it to be protected from attack, loss, corruption etc... I'm also interested to see if there's a system law-enforcement could adopt to track malicious/fraudulent BTC activity - having no point of "Accountability" is a big issue of those two points

Hey All

This is my first post here (so please be gentle with me) I've been following these forums and the BTC community for a while now - I'm a developer and there's a niche market in BTC that no-one's yet built a service for, so I'm thinking of building it. However, in all my research there's been one question that seems to undermine the idea of the currency.

Is there no accountability?

For example, let's say that one day BTC is added as a payment option for eBay, currently with PayPal if you are defrauded out of money you can just go straight back to PayPal and say "Hey, sort this out! Someone ripped me off" - but with BTC, who would you go to?

Similarly, if some peice of malware ripped of hundreds/thousands of BTC followers and pocketed the BTC into their own anonymous wallet - then those thousands of BTC followers would be fundementally untrustworthy of the system from that point forward.

These scenarios are analogous as to how the average consumer might see the BTC network and have reason not to "trust" it, and therefore not to adopt it as a method of payment (i.e: if my credit card is stolen, I can just get it cancelled)
