201  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: UK Hedge Fund Manager says Bitcoin could hit $1 Million on: December 04, 2013, 06:42:40 PM
The only reason for all these wild claims I can think of is that these guys bought a bunch already and are making these comments to enforce a sort of self fulfilling prophecy.

If you thought something was going be worth 98 times what it currently is worth would you:

a.) Write a report telling everyone.

b.) Buy as many as possible.
203  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: can there be only one? on: December 04, 2013, 06:19:21 PM
I don't think there will be as many as there are now. Its possible a handful exist in a very small market while the winner is much more widely used. Seems extremely unlikely there will be multiple bitcoins that are widely accepted.
204  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin should come with clear warning labels on: December 04, 2013, 05:54:37 PM
There need to be services and clients that are more user friendly if the majority of people are going to use or own bitcoins.

Right now its difficult enough to acquire bitcoins and manage wallets that most who use them are well aware of the risks. Once it gets to the point someone creates really easy and intuitive bitcoin services then it will be a problem that people own bitcoins, but don't really understand the risks.

It is happening!


And you can measure in mBTC on Blockchain

They had to put a huge warning to prevent people from panicking  Grin

I was slightly confused for a half second and the warning actually scared me until I read it.
206  Other / Off-topic / Re: When will amazon accept BITCOINS??? They can deliver items via DRONEs now... on: December 03, 2013, 07:37:02 PM
I can make very good business shotting those drones down...

This. I would order stuff, wait for it to be delivered, then try either capture them or smash 'em to bits with a baseball bat.

They will probably fly high enough it will be hard to get one unless you actually go into somebodies yard and try to steal it. Probably not the smartest crime to commit.

Going on private property stealing a drone that is recording your face and sending it to police.
207  Economy / Services / Tournament Poker Coaching(SNGs and MTTs) (1 Free session Available) on: December 03, 2013, 07:15:35 PM
I will do a single ~45 minute session for an established bitcointalk member provided they agree to write a review in this thread after.

I'm a long time poker player and member of 2p2. I've played >30,000 SNGs and somewhere close to 10,000 MTTs lifetime.

I've played probably ~15,000 super turbos across various sites. Although they are what I spent the most time on(because they were most profitable at the time) I've also had plenty of success at MTTs. Whether you are someone new to poker who wants to learn the basics of poker and tournament poker or someone who wants to take SNGs/MTTs more seriously I believe I can help.

If you are interested I will get a little background info from you and then we will spend time discussing topics I think can help and/or reviewing hand histories that I will request and review prior to our session.


1 hour - .015/.0225 BTCs(with a hand history review prior to our meeting)
3+ hours - .0135 with hand histories review(s) included

I've hand a handful of students before and found that it takes me a significant amount of times to prepare a hand history review before presenting it to the player(usually it takes about as long as going over it with the player). So a 1 hour session with a hand history review is actually 2 hours of work for me and thus the higher rate.

There is some flexibility with the rates. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

These are just a handful of my stats from sites/games I could collect. Unfortunately a lot of my stats are lost and some I can't access(my FTP stats on sharkscope for games below 30 players are locked):

EDIT: I've also played several hundred thousand hands of 6max cash games at stakes ranging from 10NL up to 100NL. I'd be comfortable coaching micro stakes cash(25NL and under) also if anyone is interested. If you'd like my cash game stats I can pull those from my pokertracker databases.

208  Economy / Services / Re: draglet Bitcoin bootcamp launched - learn to trade, win real BTC (100% free) on: December 03, 2013, 06:23:16 PM
So this is a market within self. Comprised of solely people from this contest?

Wouldn't it make more sense to just use the real price of bitcoin?

Also, is there a way to see the bids/asks?
209  Economy / Exchanges / Re: Stay away from Coinbase on: December 03, 2013, 06:06:37 PM
I've got a pending transaction for a small amount. If it goes through should I just avoid coinbase until my account is level 2 for instant transactions?

This whole setup is pretty infuriating. I get that they have to protect against fraud, but they should let you deposit funds to the site, wait the 5 days, and then buy/sell at market rates with the funds you deposited. Instead you have to buy, wait 5 days, and have no idea if the price will tank or they will cancel the transaction.

If you want to wait to verify the funds are legitimate then let me deposit them and buy after they are verified.

What is happening with all these sites?

I've been through this with poker sites/processors before and that didn't end well.
211  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Can someone school me on wallets? on: December 03, 2013, 04:22:05 PM
I'm using multibit. All I need is the public keys backed up right? and back them up again if I add a new address.

Can I just open the files as text and print the public keys?

Do I need anything besides the public key(s) and password to recover the wallet?
212  Other / Off-topic / Re: When will amazon accept BITCOINS??? They can deliver items via DRONEs now... on: December 03, 2013, 04:07:40 PM
The biggest problem for these drones is that in any area where there are a lot of people to service in a 10 mile radius its impractical. Anywhere that dense most people won't have a nice doorstep for you to drop the package on.

This actually makes more sense for pizza. Doesn't even need to be practical. Try competing against a company that delivers via drones.
213  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: If Bitcoin fails for some technical reason, what will come up & take its place? on: December 03, 2013, 03:58:43 PM
I guess that depends on what factor makes the Bitcoin fail. Most likely the Bitcoin copies (Litecoin, Namecoin etc.) will also fail if Bitcoin does IMO.

In most circumstances you would expect the early attempts to fail and a better alternative to come along later. I don't think that can happen with bitcoin. At least not in the short term. If bitcoin crashes I don' think you will see another large digital currency for years.
214  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Does Bitcoin hold intrinsic value, or is it overvalued? on: December 03, 2013, 03:52:42 PM
It depends on how you define intrinsic value. Can mean the worth of the metal in the coin or the value of a company due to its assets and future growth/profits alone. I say disregard a term no one can quite pin down and instead debate bitcoin on its merits.
215  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: How to safely sell Bitcoins on eBay? on: December 02, 2013, 08:29:08 PM
Would it be safe to send a paper wallet to their home address as long as they paid with a bank transfer or sent you a cheque or cash in the mail? Could they still open up a dispute? I don't think they could do anything that way, could they?

I guess you could sell them for money orders, but you don't want to take any form of payment that could come from a victim of fraud(that likely includes bank transfers). The real solution here is that you have to trust the buyer. If you don't trust the buyer don't let them purchase from you.

I'm curious, have any of these auctions for obscene amounts(2-3x market rate) been legitimate?
216  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Dwolla is ending service with Bitcoin exchanges on: December 02, 2013, 07:33:43 PM
You'll continue to see this. The transactions are high risk and they don't know if/when governments are going to step in.

Good news is that bitcoin is big enough there is a lot of money to be made.
217  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: [IDEA] Artistic QR Tattoos of Bitcoin addresses. on: December 02, 2013, 07:22:21 PM
Just owning bitcoins is enough of a commitment for most. Very scifi though.

I'm just angry.............what about Fast 7, or 8. Angry

Fast 7 was on break for thanksgiving. They've already decided to continue filming after a short break to rework the script.
219  Other / Off-topic / Re: BTC-E troll box requires 100$ to chat? on: December 02, 2013, 06:59:00 PM
Its pretty normal for poker sites to require $X to use chat. Keeps the trolls/spammers out.
