When the online drug sales site Silk Road first appeared in 2011, the idea of anonymously buying any drug imaginable from the Internet seemed like cyberpunk fiction. Watch the cheery video ad for the latest dark-web drug marketplace today, and youd be forgiven for thinking it was selling a service as mainstream as online dating or car insurance.

Seems like a modern-day honeypot to me, but only time will tell, I guess.
183  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Why Bitcoin was bought for the first time? on: June 28, 2013, 10:54:12 AM
If anyone has a clue, I'll be very grateful.
At first, somebody bought a Bitcoin for fun, because it was cool & nerdy/geeky thing to do.

But once the man realized what he bought has real value, he didn't want to sell it so cheap - so the price rose.

There you have it - the beginnings of free market.

186  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: [UPDATE] Bitcoin client soft-fork "No Forced TX Fee" v0.8.2 avaiable on: June 25, 2013, 08:12:00 AM
Isn't this a configurable option in 0.8.2?  Or do we need your client for your forked chain?
Nope.

- Chain is not forked
- Transaction relaying is unaffected
- Everything except amount of fees when sending **your own money** is unaffected

This is a minor patch, nearly identical to official client.
You can simply send money paying less fees, but with higher risk of transaction not making it into a block (fees might not be enough).

I created this fork, because i didn't like the decision of the devs to raise fees some time ago without giving user any choice (a configuration option for God's sake !).

call me a guy with a tinfoil hat again,
You are a guy in a tinfoil hat. Again.

it is as simple as changing one innocent character, at some place in the code he's made, to hide the actual purpose though still suggesting just a mistake.
like putting "," instead of ".", "O" instead "0" or "l" where you needed "1"... I've wrote so much code in C that I could think of tons of expressions that would actually work completely different than one thinks they do at the first sight.
Thanks to code analysis tools (and there are many powerful, free & extremely expensive commercial ones) plus git, such a mistake can be easily spotted.
Remember that you don't review whole code at once (large). You just review latest changes (small).

if the attacker is smart,
There are many smart (and i even dare to say: genius) people looking for backdoors in the Bitcoin code , so that wouldn't be very smart to add backdoors, even if you are a genius yourself.

Hi,

So recently I've started to work on Paysey - A BitCoin Debit Card.

About 3 hours ago, I launched a campaign Indiegogo to hopefully raise $25,000.00.
You can view the Indiegogo campaign at http://igg.me/at/paysey/x/3726658

I was wondering on what your thoughts are?

My thougths are whether you are some retarded kid who thinks he can do monies now.

I mean, seriously, this is not funny.

192  Economy / Marketplace / Re: BitMarket.Eu has closed down. A new secure site Bitalo.com is coming soon. on: June 19, 2013, 11:39:58 AM
I lost 110.9 BTC with Bitmarket and M4v3R at the Helm. Would't call him a scammer, untrustworthy may be a better word.

Ok whatever, UNTRUSTWORTHY it is then.

Time for the scammer tag.
I think that after the recents hacks on the website, the webmaster told himself "fuck it, I'm gonna steal from my users too".
Bitcoin value decreases when you do that. That's no good.

You have no idea how much time I've spent to help my users with these hacks (which were not compromises of Bitmarket security). And I didn't get anything in return. If I wanted to steal the money, I'd just announce that I got hacked and whole wallet was stolen. But I want to be completely honest with my users. That doesn't make the funds magically appear, but I believe it's the right thing to do.

Why doesn't he have SCAMMER TAG yet ?

I mean, he gambled with people's money and lost. I do not understand this...

Because a real scammer would not post any longer or pay anything back - a real scammer just disappears and runs with your money... I received some BTC from M4V3R four days ago. I wont cover my losses but its better than nothing. So IMHO M4V3R is not a scammer but just a guy who made a huge mistake and trying to deal with it.

No matter. Still a scammer.

Each lawyer will tell you:
All these ARBITRARY and UNFORESEEABLE enforced transaction fees are ILLEGAL.

It cannot be down to miners whim, what at all and even HOW MUCH they want to claim.
A claim of fees must at least clearly be declared before a transaction is definitely mandated by users.

Otherwise there is no agreement.
No agreement, no fee.
And no other chicanry like delays or denial of service (seems also applied - illegally).

Miners have the right to choose whom they provide service to or not.

does this have atopic location at all? I want to see comments on this style of thread

Wut ?

Also, please stop derailing this thread.

They will put you on scopolamine and you will tell them.

It will not work on everybody. It will not work always.

EDIT:
Actually the wiki article you have given says that always-working truth serum does not exist.
Read first before you copy paste.

What will you do if governments try to take away your bitcoin?
Will you fight back, or take it in the ass?  Lips sealed

First they have to prove you do own any Bitcoins at all.

I guess most folks have seen this already:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=232950.0

It's fairly obvious that's a smear campaign ready and waiting to be fired at Bitcoin but then there's the story so far:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=233680.0

That suggests its really a stick and the carrot is regulation. At first glance through a westerners eyes it looks like that puts a lot of pressure on the devs but in reality Bitcoin's much bigger than that, its a democratic system on a global scale and the dev's have already made it clear there's no shortage of coders for the project.

That lets the dev's off the hook, they can declare the sky is green, the sea is orange and Ben Bernanke is undisputed ruler of the galaxy in the 1.0 blockchain if they wish, its ultimately up to the user's to decide if they want to run that version and take regulation in exchange for fincen's blessing and the riches it brings. The alternative is all the mud the western corporate media can sling and every time Joe Public hears "Bitcoin" he'll think "child abuse".

But Joe Public has a short memory and quick gets bored of hearing the same tune, by the time the next headline on the agenda has cooled it will be nothing but a vague memory and will probably do more to promote Bitcoin in the long run... but that's up to the users, take the money and run or financial freedom?

Well, we were waiting for it since the dawn of Bitcoin. I don't really think people will be too surprised here.

It would be more surprising & unexpected if they didn't try to fight us.

How would this work with a sendmany rpc json transaction?
It will work with everything that the mainline client works with.

Well, except paying more fees of course.
