+1 for keepass.
It is free, user-friendly, open source, and you can make random strong passwords with it. Smiley

If you lose your credentials to your keepass then you will lose your credentials to everything. If your keepass file somehow gets corrupted or otherwise inaccessible then you will lose access to everything.

You can always write all your password down on a piece of paper and place it somewhere which is secure.

Thats why its always good to backup the database from time to time on a cloud like MEGA

Exactly.
You should always backup all your important files (bitcoin wallet, password lists in keepass, etc) as your computer can fail at any second.

There is none?

You can hardly find people selling bitcoin for paypal.

Money sent through PayPal and any other money transfer service that accepts credit cards can be easily reversed by the sender, even after several weeks. Therefore, you should only accept PayPal in trades with people you trust very highly.

This is why newbies are not likely to sell their PayPal USD for bitcoins successfully.

Some other services that are not totally safe:
- Bank transfers (ACH, etc.) except wire transfers
- Most gift cards.
- Moneypak
- AlertPay
- Paysafecards
- Dwolla
- Western Union (they reportedly will sue the recipient to recover money in some cases)

You can sell on exchanges and do a wire transfer withdrawal.
Or, you can find p2p trades on localbitcoins or https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=53.0

Iam not sure sometimes in Mt.Gox sometimes in btc-e and sometimes i sell to people.
Depending on the rate is different on each exchanger  Grin
But selling to the people is profitable  Cool

Sometimes on Mt Gox? Uhh, where have you been? Been a while since anyone could sell there. Wink

For the newbies -- don't send any BTC to your old Gox addresses. Apparently people are STILL making that mistake. Tongue

I hope he has only used mtgox long time ago before it went down. Tongue
245  Economy / Exchanges / Re: Which Bitcoin Exchange do you use and why ? on: June 29, 2014, 10:54:25 PM
BTC-e

Reason: more volatility, they have more coins, other than btc and litecoin, and they have the trollbox.

LOL -- trollbox. Somehow, I get the feeling that this assists in the ridiculous spikes BTCE has in both directions.... Stamp will move $5, BTCE will wick $10 in both directions. And the trollbox is causing so much panic during this time, hehe.

Whatever you do, don't listen to the trollbox. Before I learned that, I lost a bunch of money in both directions, selling at the bottom and buying a the top. Ughhh. Trust yourself and not the trolls, lol....

It is always fun to read the trollbox, but you shouldn't listen to their "advice" at all lol. Cheesy

It is really amazing to see btc-e getting so many trusts when everything about it remains a mystery after years.
many people love to use BTC-e because its registration is easy and don't need document/ID verification
and they offer many coins/ USD pair, not only BTC/USD
and many withdraw options provided there
but anonymous owner make this exchange suspicious

i'm not particularly suspicious. BTCE has been been around forever -- they've always honored their liabilities. they paid out when they got hacked a couple years ago. and when a long squeeze liquidated the book to near $100, they ate the loss on the liquidity they provided. they are the best exchange, IMO.

Imagine we have a new exchange tomorrow, with complete zero info on the company and the owners.
Would you feel comfortable sending $100 or 0.2 bitcoin to it? Probably not. Smiley

That illustrates how important the "first-mover advantage" is. Cheesy
247  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Are Satoshi's 1.5M coins viewable? on: June 29, 2014, 05:19:50 AM
That is some serious amount of BTC, if they all belongs to satoshi, he is some whealthy and clever guy. Clever anyway to create a BTC offcorse Smiley

well, he is wealthy should he decide to collect payment. but if he tried to sell/spend even a decent fraction of his BTC, the price would go to $0..... i'm thinking he "lost" the keys on purpose.

If the satoshi's coins are moved (but not sold on exchanges), IMHO, the price shouldn't be affected too much, but we will get a flood of "satoshi is back" posts everywhere and the story will hit mainstream media in a short period of time. Smiley
248  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Are Satoshi's 1.5M coins viewable? on: June 29, 2014, 05:14:44 AM
Bitcoin wasnt pre-mined, that's just fud, and you can see all of satoshis coins on the blockchain. They haven't moved weirdly.

Yea, i wonder why does Satoshi do not move coins at all ? He is not even active now in the forum or anywhere else ?

That is one of the biggest mysteries in bitcoin, along with "who is satoshi" and "where is satoshi now". Tongue
249  Other / Meta / Re: About selling accounts on: June 29, 2014, 05:00:45 AM
Are mods compensated? It would be awkward to put them in the position of having valuable accounts by virtue of providing a valuable service but not to pay them. 

Yes, they are paid from 25% of forum ads

The forum sells ad space in the area beneath the first post of every topic page. About 25% of ad income goes to the forum moderators as thanks for all of their work. (There are many moderators, so each moderator gets only a small amount -- moderators should be seen as volunteers, not employees.)

Yup.
And IIRC the share each mod gets is calculated using a complicated secret formula that only theymos knows (I read it in a post long time ago, but I can't find it now)...
250  Other / Meta / Re: Allow sub-forum creation on: June 29, 2014, 04:58:35 AM
This makes it near impossible to properly look up information.

You may use the forum search or google search with "site:bitcointalk.org".

Each subforum should allow users to create subforums.

Not sure if I understand your idea correctly. Do you mean any users can create subforums as they want?
If that is the case, I am afraid it could be and would be abused to create lots of craps...
251  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: localbitcoins.com redirects to google.com on: June 29, 2014, 04:52:28 AM
Errr wow, I can confirm that!

Yup, same here. Seems to be a recent thing too. I had "www.localbitcoins.com" as one of my browser bookmarks and I remember it simply redirected to the "www"-less version.

+1.
I don't recall getting redirected to Google in the past.
252  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Best exchange for daytrade? on: June 29, 2014, 04:49:44 AM
I would suggest Bitfinex due to the margin trading feature.  Smiley
253  Economy / Invites & Accounts / Re: SELLING BITCOINTALK ACCOUNTS on: June 29, 2014, 04:44:12 AM
This sort of thing enables scammers, Bitcointalk needs a rule to stop this.

Very much agree.


Also, beware of escrow.ms.

What do you mean by this? Though I haven't used his service, AFAIK, escrow.ms has been providing pretty good services.

Bet did not go through on the website for some reason.

Tx non standard (see warning on blockchain.info), in that case will go through after 1 confirm!


There is a dust output of 0.0000465 btc (or 4650 satoshi) in the tx, you should avoid creating output smaller than 5430 satoshi next time. Smiley
256  Economy / Investor-based games / Re: ►►► CoinMintersClub ~ invest Bitcoins and get 150% back ~ NOT PONZI !!! on: June 29, 2014, 04:34:50 AM
For everyone who say that 150% is small profit return,
and 10 days is very long period...

our plan is to operate for long, long time.
This is important for system sustainability.
We will probably increase payout to 200% in
the future, or cut waiting period from 10 to 7 days.

We are NOT ponzi scheme !!!

that's actually too much and not too little

Exactly.
There is no legit business that can give you 150% return in 10 days with no risk.
257  Economy / Investor-based games / Re: ►►► CoinMintersClub ~ invest Bitcoins and get 150% back ~ NOT PONZI !!! on: June 29, 2014, 04:32:25 AM
Interesting,
Dooglas give us negative trust score, without
waiting first payday to check and see if we are scam or not.

He want to invest 50,000 BTC and he own JustDice website,
but members of website cant withdraw bitcoins

I gave you negative trust because you're running a scam.

You don't judge a scam by whether it starts off paying out. They all start off paying out. You judge a scam by whether it has a feasible way of making the amount of coins it promises to pay out, and you don't.

Just-Dice has paid out over 40,000 BTC to its customers in the last 7 days. I don't know what makes you think that "members cant withdraw" but you're entirely incorrect.  See here to see how the 53k BTC we were holding have been dispersed.

He really thought you were going to send him 50000 btc and is so disappointed now lol. Cheesy
And obviously, he hasn't checked the JD thread to see no one has complained about their withdrawals.

I can see OP's picks have a good winning %, but it seems most of the the bets have fairly low odds (I didn't check the whole thread but just the previous 2 pages)...
260  Economy / Currency exchange / Re: [WTB] $20 worth of BTC via PP on: June 29, 2014, 03:58:16 AM
I need someone to trade me $20 worth of BTC for $20USD via PP. Trusted people only, please, I really don't want to be scammed again. ; _ ;

The one subjected to huge risk of chargeback is the bitcoin seller rather than you...
