Mt. Gox is no longer the benchmark because they have banking problems and are no longer able to pay their customers on time. For USD bitstamp is the benchmark price now. I don't know about CAD.

If you are going to trade locally then people will keep significant margins. If you don't like that you can always risk it with an exchange.

The price difference between mtgox and the other exchanges is almost entirely because of their problems getting people their money and lack of faith in them. Obviously the gap would fill quickly if those problems weren't there.

There isn't a single good place to buy bitcoins right now really though. They all have their issues.

Definitely need two-factor authentication for sites dealing with bitcoins. Especially if they are going to fire off withdrawals to whatever address you put in. Sorry to hear that happened to you though.

I always thought that 2FA on sites was less secure. That's where the weakspot was from inputs.io

I still don't understand why security tokens aren't more widely adopted. At least for accounts with large sums of money in them.

Say what you like about bitcoins, but you can't swim in them.

Won't be the weirdest thing the casino staff sees that day. That is for sure.

Probably won't even be the only man in a pink tutu they see. At least you have a good reason.

Transactions are actually easily trackable. If you have them on record stating the payment address you can can easily prove they didn't pay or prove that you did pay.

Seals just went down for me. Anyone else having an issue?

There are plenty of threads about this issue in the forum. Not surprised they don't want misleading headlines like that in the forum. I wouldn't either.

I got my BTC in a few minutes once the transaction on coinbase went through(took 5 business days as quoted). Nothing really to complain about. Their process is drawn out and inefficient, but its also exactly as advertised.

Make a small transaction and then get approved for instant.

i played COD 2 for a long long time

COD2 was a good solid game. Last one they made before all this madness where they don't support PC at all and everything has to be huge, have tanks, play with 60 players, fly planes, air strikes,etc
193  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: BREAKING: Ouya Now Accepts Bitcoin As Payment on: December 05, 2013, 04:19:13 PM
OUYA has some pretty bad ratings though, not even sure people will buy this. It's a great concept, but was just executed wrongly. However, perhaps accepting bitcoins may boost their sales by just a tiny bit. Smiley

Seems like every time I log onto a tech blog ouya is being bashed for something they did.
194  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: UPDATE 2-China bars banks from bitcoin transactions on: December 05, 2013, 04:11:50 PM
What does this mean exactly?

Are banks banned from transacting in bitcoins or from dealing with bitcoin related transactions entirely?

195  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Do you think any of the other "alt" currencies will overtake bitcoin? on: December 05, 2013, 02:18:12 AM
Will something replace Bitcoin (or coexisting in a niche untapped by Bitcoin)?  Maybe.

Is that something the altCoins which are clones of Bitcoin with a few parameters changed?  Not a chance.

Yeh, bitcoin has momentum. None of these clones are going to overtake it even if they offer minor improvements. Something may come along and overtake bitcoin, but it will have to offer something much better or at least different.

What are the odds he gives me access to that swimming pool full of bitcoins?

Multiply that by 900,000 and subtract a small fee.
197  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Watch the tracking of the sheep marketplace thief in real time on: December 04, 2013, 09:52:28 PM
I think his best hope of escape would be to just forget about cashing it in and to just distribute it randomly.

Send some to just random people's addresses just to throw the scent off? Probably too greedy to do that.

Would probably be a hell of a lot harder to track if some % of them were actually in circulation.


So it took a whole week for someone to actually check and verify one of the addresses on the blockchain?  Sounds Sketchy to me.

Yeh, I don't doubt the balances on the site showed the correct balance. The part I don't understand is how someone from the site didn't see their accounts slowly being drained of what has to be a massive part of their total bitcoins.

Its not like you would audit balances by looking in your database. You'd look at the actual balance.

I'm still not convinced any of the auctions for huge prices are being bought by legitimate buyers. I'm not surprised when I see a sale for 10-25% premium, but when its 100%+ higher than any market I just don't see how it can be legitimate regardless of the sellers feedback.

Throw in having to deal with paypal not wanting you doing it anyway and It can't be worth the hassle
199  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Watch the tracking of the sheep marketplace thief in real time on: December 04, 2013, 09:32:51 PM
So 96,000 bitcoins were sent out before the site realized anything was wrong?

Seems like that would be a lot of volume and suspicious right?
200  Other / Off-topic / Re: BTC Faucet.. why? on: December 04, 2013, 07:40:34 PM
A lot the faucets say they do it to help promote bitcoins. Maybe they own bitcoins and want the price to go up or just want to promote bitcoin for the sake of doing so.
