Btw efforts of BtcFn (bitcoin-over-freenet) will be able to provide some technology, research and code to re-use in transporting as well OT messages (well, contracts)

I'm getting a free one.  Unfortunately it seems they work only with mtgox? 

Well and security... not sure if this will help me - I already use strong logging passwords,   problems that resulted in mtgox hacking where server side.

But it should help windows users and other users that also can not secure their computers Wink
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is the Bitcoin falling ? DDOS breaks almost every major Pool on: July 08, 2011, 06:45:58 AM
I do not agree solo mining must be bad.

Are people always more afraid of loss then thinking of possible extra profit? (afair studies say that yes, x2 more)

Look at it this way,  assume 2.6 GHash solo.
Assume diff doubling each month (same affect as +30% but easier calculations)

You will on avg. get a block once per month.
You have 50% to get a block in 30 days.

So in pool after a month you get 50 BTC, then 25 BTC, 12.5, 6.25, 3.12 = 96.8 BTC
after more month you would get close to 100 and then some pennies monthly.

So 100 BTC in 5 months in pool.
Solo, you have 50% chance to get in this time same 100 BTC or even 150 or perhaps 200 BTC.
Also you could get 250 or 300 is very lucky - but also you can get just 50 or even 0 if very unlucky.

Mining Solo is NOT less profitable at it does NOT mean you will get nothing - you may get nothing but you may also get much more then from pool, even +50% more is not that unlikely.

It is the risk of getting 0 BTC what scares people it seems.

1. Retired couple in rural Kansas gets a frantic call at 2 a.m. Sunday morning from their backpacking granddaughter and her friend visiting Kenya. They've just been robbed and need money NOW.

Sorry no money - trollback in progress =)

This week the US courts service ( has shown increasing interest in Bitcoins.  Their research is ongoing but hastily scaling-up from where it was last week.

Although, it would not be too surprising if the land of the free would deny yet another basic freedom to own citizens Wink

How is that possible?

What is going on there?
Still some bugs or what?

Does anyone know what's going on?

Rollback? Smiley

11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / POLL: will you stay with mtgox on: June 26, 2011, 12:34:34 PM
If looking at pool results,
keeping mind that the option of "Yes I will trade the same" is one, but options of type "No, I will trade less" are divided into at least 6 questions.
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Why are you going back to MtGox? on: June 26, 2011, 12:25:42 PM

Before the security clusterfuck we where content with actually very good customer service (at least for us) at mtgox.

I think they deserve sort of second chance, but at same time now we know it is often not wise to place all your funds in one place - all eggs in one basket.

Some using other exchanges too is a good option.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: If the exchange to BTC was irreversible - would you buy BTC? on: June 26, 2011, 12:11:46 AM

Well no, but simply because I can acquire it by mining instead.

If I would not mine, I would consider buying some BTCs.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: deepbit taking over? is there any effort to keep track of invalidated blocks? on: June 26, 2011, 12:08:29 AM

as an increase in the invalid block count would be an indicator of a 51% take over scenario and as I have seen how eligius got 4/10 blocks invalidated recently I wonder if there is any effort taken to keep track of invalidated blocks?

In my opinion the block chain should generally be a block tree containing also the invalid blocks with the client being able to request the longest chain, only. With this data the block explorer should also keep track of those lost blocks to run forensic analysis on them later.


"eligius got 4/10 blocks invalidated recently"

Well, what about other pools?

17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: When do you think the first ever murder related to Bitcoins will happen? on: June 25, 2011, 02:28:03 AM
after the first bitcoin website, forum, lobby organization, tv show etc...

the first bitcoins murder will come sooner or later.

maybe two businessmen have a serious disagreement on some business arrangement based on bitcoins transactions?

i have a hunch it will happen in tokyo though...

ENOUGH ALREADY with the mtgox threads.

18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Where is Mt Gox's office in Tokyo? on: June 24, 2011, 05:24:10 PM
To everyone who thinks talking about such acts being discussed here is funny and amusing, you guys are they one's that forums speaks of when there are threads concerning the immaturity of people participating in the forum. Grow up and please consider leaving the forum altogether because I'm certain it will be a better place without you people in it.  Disgusting how impatient and immature the audience here is sometimes after what I consider a near perfect storm to hit the bitcoin community. Just get lost.

Yea, they just taken all your money due to total negligence at security. 

Sheeesh relax guys, it's not like someone took your money or something.
