What about playing some MMO games and sell the in-game currencies for bitcoin?
I have completely no idea how much you can get though.
102  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Need help buying small amount of bitcoin on: September 03, 2014, 08:35:14 AM
+1 to localbitcoins.

The only downside I can think of is that bitcoin sellers on localbitcoins usually ask for 5% or more above the bitstamp price.
103  Economy / Speculation / Re: $10,000 when? on: September 03, 2014, 08:27:19 AM
The bitcoin price is still "stuck" at $470.
We need a new big company to take bitcoin, or a big country to embrace bitcoin...

What can  bitcoin do? How do you make itbecome a money making machine?

Bitcoin is not a money making machine nor a get rich fast scheme.

You can take some time reading and to understand what bitcoin is.
105  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: What to do with one full bitcoin? on: September 03, 2014, 08:13:12 AM
Bitcoin is a currency and an economy.  If you want to invest in it you need to advertise BTC to merchants.  Newegg and Dell took it, advertise it to your local shops.  The more it gets accepted, the more stable it will become and the more likely the value will rise due to its utility.

To make the bitcoin price much higher, we need bitcoin to hit the mainstream.
To do so, we need to get more customers using bitcoin and more merchants accepting bitcoin payment.

One simple way to get merchants interested in bitcoin, is to ask if they accept bitcoin every time you pay for your products or services. Smiley

Any one can help me, what is the most profitable to invest bitcoin ? but not a gambling ...
thanks for the explaination ...

High potential profit comes together with high risk.

The most profitable (and most risky) investment IMO is to send your bitcoin to a HYIP (eg. an unknown person claiming to send you 150% back in a day). I don't suggest any one to do so, as very likely you will never see your bitcoin again. Wink

What does it take to get the faucet on PD?  I never have done gambling yet.  If one was actually worth while I will give it a try.

You just need to register an account and you can claim 500 satoshi every minute by solving a captcha.
The faucet amount will go up as your account gets to a higher level by betting more or chatting more.

Would anyone know What is your best bitcoin wallet for the Philippines?

Just the same as for other part of the world. There is no regional wallet as far as I know. Just start using some highly popular ones and you will be fine. Like Electrum, Armory, BTCore etc.

Very much true, except if someone is looking for a wallet client with a particular language translation.
Unfortunately, I don't think any wallet has done translation for the Filipino language AFAIK.
109  Economy / Services / Re: Hiring for Services on: September 03, 2014, 04:38:30 AM
Anyone here knows what should I pay if I hire someone to write 400 word article about a sports site? Is 0.01 BTC enough or is it a little bit high for that? What do you think? If I do it per month, how much should I pay?

Question for supply and demand. Just make an open offer (no price specified), and choose the best offer.

Same type of thing I was thinking.  Think of it like an auction and the lowest bidder wins.  You may not get very good quality if the price too low however.  There are many similar type services that have been offered here in the past to help you get an idea of what a fair price would be.  Best of luck finding someone to fill the position. 

Instead of taking the lowest bidder, he could check the post history of all the bidders first and pick one that can write good English, has some understanding in sports gambling and offer an acceptable price. Smiley

Buy for fiat and then buy 1 BTC, thats the only way to do it these days pretty much  Cry Cry

Where can I buy that fiat?

Easiest way is to get a job.
If you are in a developed country, getting a minimum wage job should enable you to get 1 BTC in a few weeks.

Scammers should be put in a reality show for the rest of their life. Tongue

The newest episode should be focusing on Mark Karpeles, and showing how he is going to launch a new business without getting any consequence from the mysterious mtgox hack and his lies.
112  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: I am new,looking to start mining. on: September 03, 2014, 04:17:28 AM
whats with everyone wanting to mine? just buy it and hold onto it, and you`ll be in more profit then the miners.

A lot of people who are new to Bitcoin are attracted by the fact that you can create wealth by letting your computer perform arithmetic calculations. It's interesting, effectively money for nothing. They also don't get that the difficulty increases exponentially and therefore assume they'll get thousands of USD every month and will be millionaires in a few years time.

What makes the problem worse is that, they can find some out of date mining tutorials and analyses, in which they can get a lot of bitcoin using just ordinary computers and USB miners.
113  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Accounts market FAQ on: September 03, 2014, 04:12:16 AM
Transfer of account ownership in bitcointalk is reversible for many months after the transfer occurs.

Every single bitcointalk account sale that I have escrowed so far has been returned to the original owner after the escrow was eventually released.

Wow, I could imagine some account sellers will claim to have been hacked after the trade, but I couldn't imagine there are so many greedy people...

The only way I would be willing to escrow the sale of a bitcointalk account would be if:

  • The account being sold has a bitcoin address in an unedited post from more than 6 months ago.
  • The seller of the account can provide a message signed with the private key from that address which states:
    "I have am transferring ownership of this bitcointalk account to the owner of the private key of the following address: 1Kc5SzTBvKmXzqAqFFYwWmdtSg83XAqsRR".
  • The seller of the account is willing to leave the purchase funds in escrow for 30 days after the buyer has control of the account.

If the seller of the account cannot meet these conditions, then you will need to find someone else to provide escrow for the transaction.  Please be aware that if you choose to use someone else for escrow, they cannot protect you from someone selling stolen or hacked accounts.

It is a great idea to require the account sellers to prove they are really the legit account owners. Smiley

Easiest way is to upload the wallet.dat file directly to on

If you don't trust, you can use the command "listunspent" to get a list of addresses having positive balance and use "dumpprivkey" to show the private key of those addresses (need to decrypt your wallet file with "walletpassphrase" if you have set a pass phrase).

Thank you

Go to, cut the internet connection, generate a new wallet with BIP38 encryption, print it out and now you have a secure paper wallet. Smiley

Is it the most safe and profitable to invest bitcoin is just to trading it? buy low sell high?

I have invested in HYIPS , cloudmining, ponzis games, and all of them turn to be scams

when i asked about mining, most of the member here told me it is not worth it anymore

so what the best way to invest or earning BTC right now?

Trading isn't safe at all, as bitcoin price is very volatile and unpredictable.
I couldn't find another good bitcoin investment opportunity after JD is down.
117  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Hash Rate Low on GTX660? on: September 03, 2014, 02:52:26 AM
Not to raise the dead here, but I just got into the mining game and I'm practicing on Ducknote. I have a Core i7 860, 2gb GTX 660, eight gb DDR 3 and I'm using tsiv's CCMiner fork. I'm not even getting khash/s. Can someone take pity on a novice and help?

I don't know much on the issue, but just found the post
The person get 120 hashes per sec with his GTX 660.

What hashrate do you get exactly?
118  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: where is .conf file for btc wallet on: September 03, 2014, 02:40:01 AM
You have to create your own .conf file in bitcoin roaming folder. The path will be : C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin
Just create a file named settings.conf in here and it should pick that up.

It is better to name the file bitcoin.conf so that you don't need to specify -conf=<file> when running your bitcoin qt IMO.
119  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Safe but anonymous exchange ? on: September 03, 2014, 02:37:42 AM
None of the exchanges are anonymous if you are going to have FIAT in the operation. Crypto4crypto is the safest way. If you want to use FIAT, use LocalBitcoin and meet with the seller.

Meeting the seller isn't anonymous, right? Roll Eyes Huh


For face-to-face cash trade, you don't need to provide your personal information to another person or party and it doesn't create any record on the transaction, so I would consider it anonymous.
120  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: How to 1/10 of a bit coin to give a friend who never used bitcoins? on: September 03, 2014, 02:29:17 AM
If I want to give a friend 1/10 of a bitcoin, (he has never used bitcoins so does not have a wallet), can I just send it through email to him, he then later register a wallet to get the gift from me? Or does he have to get a wallet first? I want it to be a suprise to him so would be great no to tell him to get a wallet first.

IMO, it is better for you to create the wallet together with your friend, and show him how to send bitcoin and keep his bitcoin safe.
