Morsomt at linken sier topp 9 og linken bare nevner 8. Noen som ikke likte å være på listen?

Det store spørsmålet er hvorvidt MVA skal betales for hver eneste BTC-veksling man gjør. Om det skal 25% hver gang skal det ikke mye daytrading til før man skylder staten 10-100x det man eier av verdier i BTC, som er totalt absurd.

but after just a few questions it turned out to be completely legitimate

What were those questions? Still seem like a pretty clear ponzi scheme to me.

(Hint, if something guarantees a certain and high return on your investments, it's a ponzi.)

I did a small investigation some time ago to see how widespread the problem was, and these were the results:

 - Sent 0.001 BTC to an address generated with a password you will find in any top 10 common password list. Taken immediately.
 - Sent 0.001 BTC to an address generated with a six digit password. Taken immediately.
 - Sent 0.001 BTC to an address generated with the same six digit password as above, but with Point Conversion set to "Compressed". Untouched.
 - Sent 0.001 BTC to an address generated with an upper/lower/digit six character randomly generated password, normal Point Conversion. Untouched.

Someone is definitely out there grabbing things from weak-passworded wallets, but even a six-character random password thwarts them.


Edit:
Mechs, tell us which password you used. It's already compromised, so there should be no harm in revealing it.
If you can't reveal it because you use that password in multiple places then guess what - that's how they got your password in the first place - by stealing it from some other place you used it.

I created a market order for buying 1 BTC with 250:1 leverage. I canceled after a few minutes, and now it's been stuck in "Cancel Pending" for several minutes.

95 chips.  That'd be 315.789473684211MH/s per.
Does this mean you need to put 95 of those chips in a single device to get the hash-rate that a bfl little single (30Gh/s) is supposed to give?

I don't see why this is a problem. As long as the cost and power consumption of the device is reasonable, who cares how many chips it has?

I assume it's the private key that's under your finger. Without any additional security measures, how can one be sure that a paper coin is unspent?

+1.  If subforums are expensive I will pledge 1 BTC towards it.

Subforums are absolutely totally free. I have no idea how you would even get the idea that subforums were something that cost money.

11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: [TIN FOIL HAT] Google subtly censoring bitcoin search results? + Wired on: May 12, 2012, 11:22:20 AM
Are you for real?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wired_(magazine)

Wired started as a paper magazine in NINETEEN NINETY THREE - more than five years before Google ever existed. It is the largest tech-focused mag around, and should be known by everyone who are the slightest interested in technology, both inside the US and outside.

What are you, 13 years old? If you don't recognize Wired, you have no business judging the validity of Google's search results.

How are you going to solve the problem that everyone in possession of the coin could "empty" it, leaving it useless? Unless the QR code is the public key, in that case - where is the private key?

OMG, I love ABE! Turns out that we can read all of the branches pretty easily!

Here's some examples:

Block 137571:
http://abe.john-edwin-tobey.org/block/0000000000000779066b823cc302316ca6cf5550f7b1d28f79a26ebff09503d4
http://abe.john-edwin-tobey.org/block/00000000000001fba6bcf0c15d3fecc4d1f2837e934d6ee5afff3ff28a0888a2

Block 136755:
http://abe.john-edwin-tobey.org/block/00000000000000f48d1225842ed629fce1d1e5ae0fba6ae04d4ae7dbfc9e34af
http://abe.john-edwin-tobey.org/block/0000000000000152fd8df6e551d1d3db507132ed34495cde176eb799057871f3

Anyone want to look for conflicts? If we check every reorg, we'll be able to INDEPENDENTLY verify the amount of funds stolen, and where they went to. Additionally, we might even find out that a pool was behind this. Game = changed.

I did a check of the fake 137571 block, and the only transaction that's there, but not in the real 137571-137573 blocks is the generation one. Which is what you'd expect from a "legit" dupe block. Looking through the other one now.

edit: Same with the 136755 block. Only generation block is missing.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: My account request was rejected by MtGox - what should I do? on: June 25, 2011, 01:07:11 AM
Got accepted on my first attempt yesterday. Original password was 9 char lower/numeric, IP and email the same as before the hack, but I didn't give a balance though I had more than $100 in the account. Still got accepted.
15  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: MtGox possibly stolen account with bitcoins on it on: June 19, 2011, 04:19:36 AM
That money went out of the address doesn't mean anything. Any money sent into mtgox gets pooled together, so if someone took out your 50.56 it would most likely not come out of the same address you used to add it. I suggest you try the support forum on mtgox too.
16  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: MT GOX... Where are my coins? on: June 19, 2011, 04:11:04 AM
Daamn, that's some old coins.
17  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: MT GOX... Where are my coins? on: June 19, 2011, 04:06:51 AM
Then I have no idea what might have happened. Get hold of someone more experienced and maybe they can figure something out from the debug log.

Post a screenshot of the program running. (with details like addresses blurred, if you feel like it)
It's running, trust me.

I'm more interested in the number of connections and block count you have in it.

And then you wait for a few minutes as Bitcoin scans the blocks.
