Were you able to fix the bitstamp "offline" bug where no balances are shown?  For me I am still getting the bug.  But I see you fixed something with bitstamp on this release.  Thanks

I also cannot get anything working with bitstamp right now.  A few days ago there were no balances, but trades would still execute.  Now I can't even trade.

Yeah it it gets in the $200 range Im pulling all my money out of the Bank to buy Bitcoin.
I doubt it would go that low and if it did you could easily double your money within a year or two.
This is just some panic FUD selloff going on. Buy the dip, HODL and profit.

People said this exact same thing during the 2013 crash.  $200 seemed impossible and everyone was dreaming of buying so low.  The thing is, if/when it actually happens, the market will be on an 80% loss.  Suddenly going all-in on cheap bitcoins doesn't seem as appealing.

Thanks for the responses.  I still don't understand the concept of the market makers.  Or more specifically, how is your website earning money if you aren't holding positions or taking a commission on the sports predictions?
6  Economy / Gambling / Re: FAIRLAY - The BETTING EXCHANGE - super high liquidity, 0% fees on sports on: September 21, 2015, 04:55:43 PM
For our main market makers we also have a different rule regarding the reserving of funds.  They can put as many open orders as they want. The funds will be deducted from their balance before a bet is matched. If the market maker does not have enough funds, we will NOT match the bet.

Can you explain what the "main market makers" are?  Are you saying that in order for them to put out 50 different offers of 20 btc, they would only need a minimum balance of 20 btc?  So if someone matched one of those offers for 20 btc, all the remaining offers for that specific "market maker" would be pulled?  Or would their offers still be displayed but a customer would be unable to complete a match with them?

Cashouts up to 5 BTC are processed immediately right now and we are going to increase this limit step by step.

Regarding the proof of balance, there are some privacy concerns, but if there is really demand for it I will pass the request along. In the meantime I can assure you that we keep all customer funds secure.

What concerns me is that you are offering such high limits while calling 5 BTC cashouts large.  What if someone came to your site and placed a lot of NFL bets?  If they had a good run they could easily win 1000+ BTC.  Does your site have anywhere near that kind of reserves to sustain that type of variance?  And if not why are you offering such high limits?
8  Economy / Gambling / Re: FAIRLAY - The BETTING EXCHANGE - super high liquidity, 0% fees on sports on: September 21, 2015, 04:15:49 AM
We are increasing our Hot Wallet balance, so even larger cashouts will be processed instantly...

Hi, has your site provided any proof of balance?  How large is "larger cashouts"?  I see it is possible to bet 10, 20, even 100 btc on some sports.  Are you really able to accommodate and payout withdrawals of 100+ btc?
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / How do other blockchain implementations affect Bitcoin? on: August 02, 2014, 08:05:54 PM
I know that the blockchain technology which is the backbone of Bitcoin has lots of other applications.  For example, it could potentially be used by companies to issue shares of stock, or for two individuals to construct a public contract.

My question, and I realize this probably requires speculation, is as follows:  If this type of behavior caught on, would it provide support to the bitcoin network/currency?  Since the bitcoin blockchain is by far the biggest/strongest/(most stable?) does it make sense for these contracts to exists on the same blockchain somehow?  Or would they simply exist as completely separate entities, using the same technology (the blockchain concept)?

I am both an investor and an enthusiast.  When I explain bitcoin to friends/family, I cite the "alternate blockchain usage" as a potential support for bitcoin as a currency.  But I am unsure if this make sense in theory.

FlappyCoin could fulfill an untapped role: there's no cryptocurrency for flash games and such. A lot of sites that host flash games have their own virtual currency for micro-transactions. FlappyCoin could become the de facto standard.

That's what I have in mind.  Not just flash games but mobile app games as well.  Do you know of any specific sites that use their own virtual currencies, and what functions (if any) they have outside the website?
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: 1BTC or 1oz of Gold. Which one would you take? on: March 02, 2014, 05:23:14 PM
If you're going to ask this question, you might as well propose it in a form which is worth discussing:

"If you could accept 1 BTC or 1 oz of gold - but you can't sell or do anything with it for 5 years - which would you take?"
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: [FLAP] - FlappyCoin - Help needed - Lot of Bounties on: March 02, 2014, 05:17:52 PM
The way I could really see this coin taking off would be if a whole host of games were built which integrated flappycoins and the wallet with them.  The website could have a whole section of games (much like sites which already exist, but now there is extra incentive and fun to play).  And many of the games could be created for iOS and Android to be used on phones. 
17  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: n00b question: if you create an address offline... on: March 02, 2014, 01:21:56 AM
Yeah just to clarify what has been said, you don't "create" addresses.  All the addresses that will ever exist have already been created.  When you generate an address/key pair, you're simply choosing one of these existing addresses at random.  This is why you can generate addresses while not connected to the internet.

Interested in buying FLAP for BTC at a rate of 0.000000035.  That is 3.5 satoshis per FLAP.  If interested please PM me and we can set up an escrow.
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][FLAP] FlappyCoin ★ 0 PREMINED ★ COPYRIGHTED ★ MANY GIVEAWAYS ★ V1.0.0.2 on: March 01, 2014, 01:34:27 AM
I'm interested in buying some FLAP at 0.000000045 for BTC.  PM me if interested.

I don't think anyone is too desperate to sell their flap at 4.5 satoshis a pop.

Did I add an extra zero?  When I posted the spread on the exchanges was between 4 and 5 so I am offering in the middle.
