Digging things out of the earth is what makes them valuable apparently. Guess a single coherent point was too much to expect.

Does it really matter if you are winning even with 3+ activated refs?

Anyone good enough at getting money out of people to make this profitable could just get their money without paying someone 18% commission on every person they bring in.

So is this basically another crypto-currency w/ the same accounting capabilities as bitcoin, except centralized by the bank?


Not sure how this is going to work. It can't do anything bitcoin can do because the company who owns it will have reporting requirements.

They used a gox chart on CNBC earlier which I thought was pretty funny. Looks like gox is back to being $50-100 higher than market again.

Well china is/was the last catalyst for growth from $200, I would call this adoption rather than speculation alone, there's still enormous scope for growth yet across the globe

How much of that growth in china is due to actual usage though? I know there are some uses in china, but most of the volume in china is investment/speculation is it not?

I don't think it matters the sites let you gamble in BTC. They will probably start getting their domains seized and stuff soon.
167  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What is Bitcoin's next catalyst for growth ? on: December 10, 2013, 04:13:30 PM
What was its last catalyst for "growth"?

Mostly just rampant speculation. Hopefully someone will find/create a use for bitcoins that doesn't exist yet. I don't think a widespread adoption of bitcoin by merchants is very likely to happen anytime soon.

Exchanges that aren't awful would probably help.

"I really like Bitcoin. I own bitcoins," Marcus said

wow, cool!

To paraphrase:
My company won't be touching bitcoins anytime soon, but I think they are great and I want the world to know. On an unrelated note I just bought a lot of them.

Seem convenient?

So, you are the owner of that site. Can you explained how the site get income to pay people ?

Its a pyramid scheme. Even says so in the OP. Gotta love bitcoin. Only in the bitcoin world would someone start a pyramid scheme and tell you flat out its a pyramid scheme.

If this weren't a bad enough thing to put money into already there is a monstrous service fee.

Decided to finally start playing poker in BTC. Not sure why I waited so long. So much more easier in so many ways.

I can't get the desktop client to work. Says "Cannot connect to server" when I try to open it.

It is just a propaganda.

As far as propaganda goes I think flying delivery robots is pretty good at least.

This never has to work. There is value in just being the company who tried to make flying delivery robots.

Losses are carried forward. You only pay commission over actual profits. If your investment goes down X% in week one and then grows back to your original amount in week two, you can withdraw the investment without having paid a single satoshi in commission.

Yeh, I reread the explanation. Makes more sense now. Only profit over peak matters.

174  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: The last posting from your IP was less than 360 seconds ago on: December 08, 2013, 10:14:06 PM
I hate that as well. When you press return to page the text is gone...

Your right, this is a problem. But you can selet+copy the text before you post, just in case  Cheesy

I'm in the habit of doing this every time now. Got tired of trying to post too soon and having to rewrite the entire post again.

Anyone know at what point time limits go down and where time they go to?
175  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: : Invest in 1% House Edge Dice Game on: December 08, 2013, 09:41:12 PM
The thing that concerns me about this is the weekly 10% off the top with no make up.

Depending on volume, spread of bets,etc its possible for this to be a loser for investors.

Dooglus has what we call a freeroll. No ill will toward him, but I'm hesitant towards this as I don't see any reason the commission needs to be taken out every week or not carry losses forward.

Just to be 100% clear here is the issue. You get 90% of the profits over X time period and 100% of the losses over X time period. Is that a good bet on 10 seconds? Absolutely not.

At what point does it become a good bet? I don't know precisely, but its certainly possible its a time period longer than 1 week.

They didn't accept bitcoin. What car dealer wouldn't take this deal?

They just processed the money through bitpay and the dealership received USD.

The average person isn't putting money into bitcoin because they have no reason to need them, they are fairly difficult to obtain, and they can't understand how the thing even works.

25 papa points for .015 bitcoins seems fair.

Could be the first bitcoin to papa points transaction.

I can see that something isn't right, but what is it exactly they are doing and why are they doing it?
