I've updated it to check for newly funded and newly opened coins every 5 minutes.
842  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Physical Litecoins on: January 02, 2012, 07:13:31 PM
Yes, I'd like one as well. Do the litecoins for shipping go to a specific address, or your sig one?

BitcoinPorn - 1 (sending one for free since it's his design that inspired this)
Mushroomized - 2
terrytibbs - 1 (for gavin)
inlikeflynn - 2
illpoet - 1
SockPuppet - 1

I will send out a different address and collect your physical addresses when the time comes.

I'm giving away a limited supply of acrylic litecoins for free (well postage only):
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=53596.msg671160#msg671160
Please post there if you want one.
844  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Physical Litecoins on: January 02, 2012, 07:01:36 PM
I'd like to mail them all in a batch to save me time. Here's what I have so far, anyone else?

Mushroomized - 2
terrytibbs - 1
inlikeflynn - 2
illpoet - 1

Anyone else?
845  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Physical Litecoins on: December 28, 2011, 03:49:00 AM
I might hit you up on that Smiley

How much would shipping be to the east coast of USA

I can probably just put one in a first class envelope and send it. That should work, right? So only 44 cents or 70 litecoins. I will only accept litecoins. Smiley

70 ltc for a physical litecoin. Is that a good deal? :p
846  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Physical Litecoins on: December 28, 2011, 03:21:24 AM
Any plans to sell or give away some of those transparent coins?

Sure, I could give them away. I guess I will only charge for shipping. Who wants one?

If you used a 22 chars mini private key and that happens, how long would it take to brute force the right key. Since it starts with S, you have 21 characters to try. So 21! or 5.1 10^19. How long would that take?

Factorial is the wrong operation.  A base58 mini private key of 22 characters would be more like 58^21, or 1.08 x 10^37.

I'm not trying to brute force a key. Just the order of the 21 beads. So factorial is correct.

One solution to the bead string breaking and leaving you a mess is to just include a piece of paper with the mini key on it. Put both together in a bank safe. If the bead string breaks somehow, you still have the paper backup. And if the paper/ink fades, you will have the beads backup.

The numbers on beads would scare me...if the chain breaks and the letters fall to the floor, the bitcoins evaporate.

Maybe you can use the larger 5.5mm silver plated beads for the uppercase and the lowercase and numbers can be the smaller 5mm beads.

Yeah, I thought of that too. So I plan to generate a mini key and then buy the beads I need from that site. Maybe add a few more random beads, so even if that website knew what I was doing, it would be quite hard to figure out my key.

can't you just use 'special' paper that doesn't decay?  I'm sure I've heard of such paper that can last 100yrs at least.

The ink could fade even if the paper doesn't decay. Plus, water won't be a problem for beads unlike ink on paper. Fire will probably be a problem, but that's true for most things.

I've been thinking of ways to safely store my bitcoins. After hearing so many stories of stolen bitcoins and lost bitcoins, I wanted an option where I can put some private keys in a bank safe somewhere. One option is to purchase casascius physical bitcoins. They are cool, but then you have to trust that Mike Caldwell (casascius) does not keep a copy of the private keys. Or I can just write it down on a piece of paper and store that piece of paper in the bank safe. But a piece of paper might not last... plus water and heat can easily render the writing illegible. Then I thought, what if I use alphabet/number beads to string together a mini private key and store that in my bank account. Something like these: http://www.beadsrfun.com/Letter-Beads,-Number-Beads-and-Charms-5mm-Pewter-Letter-&-Number-Cubes/c257_288/index.html

To me, that seems like a great way to store a physical representation of a private key. What do you think? Obviously, this it just for bitcoins in my "savings" account. It will be stored in my bank safe for many years. So they will either be worth a lot of money or nothing by the time I take them out. Smiley

I agree. No matter how you look at it, this coin feels like real money.

It's worth $5500 right now: http://casascius.appspot.com/group?type=6
I wonder how much it will be worth next year.

854  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: solidcoin, litecoin, tbx, fbx should move back to gpu merged mining. on: December 20, 2011, 08:19:57 PM
Solidcoin 1 was GPU mining, no reason he can't switch the algorithm back, compress the block chain, and merge mine with all his brother coins.

LOL. Why don't you start your own coin?
855  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: solidcoin, litecoin, tbx, fbx should move back to gpu merged mining. on: December 20, 2011, 08:11:25 PM
They were not designed to save energy. They cannot do GPU merge mining. And block rewards will not be reduced to 1.

I have added some details for the curious in the original post, check them out.


hey pooler, really great job you have done!
the results for my intel-cpu's are:
~ 100 % more hashing-power
~  15 % less energy amount (for doubled mining-power!)
now we know, why the intel-cpu's are more expensive  Grin
i'll set up the donation at your pool to 30 %, mining with 235 KH/s now
Hey, thank you!

Pooler, you are amazing. Thanks for your hard work. I have sent you a little something:

In case people haven't seen, pooler worked on an optimized version of minerd that is up to twice as fast as the previous fastest miner!

What are the little transparent ones? Are they worth anything?

The transparent ones are just fun little acrylic litecoins made to look like BitcoinPorn's design. See BitcoinPorn's signature above. They don't have any embedded litecoins.

Since it doesn't seem like we had enough interest to do a bulk order for a custom Litecoin bar yet, I asked casascius to make me a personal one. And he also made me some transparent acrylic coin!
Here's a picture of what he's sending me. The hologram has not been put onto the bar yet.



If you are interested, you may want to ask casascius to see if he would make you one also. Since it's a custom order, it won't be cheap though.
