At this conference the majority approved. Mainly because it wasn't entirely banker types.

Afterwards the organiser told us that we had the best talk of the entire conference. He said there _were_ a few banker types sitting there all white-faced & scared looking around nervously. The video has been cut to look professional but halfway through people spontaneously applauded and people were laughing at various points to things. There was this hum of mumble every so often and people looking at each other.

I think you're all underestimating how excited these people were. Maybe they don't yet see it as battle tested & too risky but they certainly all loved the idea, the concept.

Everybody afterwards told me I was amazing, and we had multiple people asking to eat with us at lunch that we couldn't meet all. You can't see in the talk but people were laughing at all the cool shit like drugs .etc and when taking my seat people were patting my back/giving me a thumbs up.

Inexperience- no way. I've spoken at bigger/more famous conferences before. You should maybe google my nickname/real name.

Intimidated - no way. Showing a picture of black bloc anarchists, drugs, crushing the system, wikileaks and a gun. Wearing nail polish. I felt perfectly fine.

And the slides was their fault since they didn't tell me I would not have my laptop on stage and that I have to use their Mac.

I released the source code for Britcoin for this reason. Currently we're talking with lawyers to gain the relevant licenses and expand to other currencies hopefully.

If anyone wants to setup their own exchange, then I can do this for a small fee of ~400 BTC.

Nice to see it talked about honestly and objectively.
Hope it works out well for them, perfect audience to promote btc. 

Yeah, funny to see how positively anons react the Bitcoins, when supposedly 'intelligent' Slashdot is overly critical.

Any chance of a computer readable way of pulling your orderbook?

Britcoin has been open for a while, https://britcoin.co.uk/

It's not a business but a charity. I don't charge any fees for the time being.

It says "payments have to be authorised before being added to your balance for security reasons". What does this mean?

It means that when you pay into the system, firstly new payments go into one database and appear under your profile as 'verifying'.

Then some tools are run, and after 24 hours they get credited to your account.

This is mainly because I check everyday for errors, bugs or security problems. So it gives me time to inspect what's happening before anything occurs.

Ubuntu. Even if there's a patch for this problem, it's good to have a backup for if Bitcoin does crash.

1296  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / bitcoind crash on: April 02, 2011, 04:28:38 PM
Today bitcoind locked up on my server and wasn't responding to errors.

Apart from saying 'bitcoin shouldn't crash', what kind of backup systems could exist to gracefully recover when Bitcoin locks up?

Not sure what can be done except calling an safety check hook which kills/restarts bitcoind. Ideally it'd be nice to run multiple nodes and switch between them freely (sharing the same wallets or having 'backup' nodes with a BTC store).
1297  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: [python] Bitcoin-friendly JSON-RPC library on: April 02, 2011, 04:26:22 PM
Yep, I meant along the lines of: increment class counter, store it as private ID.
1298  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: [python] Bitcoin-friendly JSON-RPC library on: April 02, 2011, 02:52:37 PM
The class on the wiki already supports automatic introspection and uses python's Decimal class:
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/API_reference_%28JSON-RPC%29#Python

Code:
import urllib
import decimal
import json
 
class JSONRPCException(Exception):
    def __init__(self, rpcError):
        Exception.__init__(self)
        self.error = rpcError
 
class ServiceProxy(object):
    def __init__(self, serviceURL, serviceName=None):
        self.__serviceURL = serviceURL
        self.__serviceName = serviceName
 
    def __getattr__(self, name):
        if self.__serviceName != None:
            name = "%s.%s" % (self.__serviceName, name)
        return ServiceProxy(self.__serviceURL, name)
 
    def __call__(self, *args):
         postdata = json.dumps({"method": self.__serviceName, 'params': args, 'id':'jsonrpc'})
         respdata = urllib.urlopen(self.__serviceURL, postdata).read()
         resp = json.loads(respdata, parse_float=decimal.Decimal)
         if resp['error'] != None:
             raise JSONRPCException(resp['error'])
         else:
             return resp['result']

How does this improve on that? I saw that you're using httplib instead of urllib. Any reasons for that?

Also you may wish to read,
http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0008/

Python libraries generally follow that style as to provide a consistent API. It doesn't always happen but everybody tries to use that same standard Smiley

Using the ID count is clever. Would it maybe be a good idea to either make that a class variable? For when people instantiate multiple Proxies across threads or something.
1299  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Cause of MtGox exchange rate rise? on: April 02, 2011, 08:09:33 AM
Hi Everyone,

what would cause the BTC exchange rates to rise?
 FUND INFLOWS INTO THE EXCHANGES from existing and / or new users. To make the BTC/USD exchange rate rise, the economy needs around 8000 BTCs worth of inflows every day (160 blocks per day * 50 = 8000 BTC). This of course assumes that all miners convert all back to USD regularly and dont save bitcoins at all, which is not 100% correct.

Still, there needs to be significant money inflows into BTCs regularly as we know that miners need to offset their costs and pay off hardware, pay electricity etc.

What could make BTC rates fall: no further money inflows make the BTC/USD rate fall on its own weight (because of the BTC inflation due to mining)


This means that ideally every current bitcoin users should convince another new user to start getting into bitcoins.

Perhaps we can start a tell-a-friend mechanism where there are incentives for existing users?

We need more FUND INFLOWS.   We know what supply is.  Over 5 million in circulation and a small fraction of that floating.   More currency exchange is what we need.  More points of entry.  The Bottleneck is the conversion of fiat into BTC and vice versa.   it's too difficult for most people.   Mt Gox is important but we need larger and more numerous points of conversion.    That is the key.   Goods and services available for bitcoin directly will help but the explosive growth comes from BTC/fiat convertibility and the ease with which that is provided. 

Source code for Britcoin is free. You can either try to set it up yourself, or I will do it for 600 BTC. Or 2 people at the same time for 800 BTC.

Fool. I PM'ed you to ask if you want to help out. You replied then did nothing.

Your loss.

Don't know about Kiba but I suspect the same.

Are you both 12? I guess you're only good for making crappy forum posts attacking people rather than taking the initiative to write useful code. Not here to be your parent. In the future if you want to work on the net, you have to be pro-active and self-directed.
