This seems fairly well-specified already, but just to confirm:

- 2 simple HTML pages as portrayed in the OP, allowing drag-and-drop file selection (along with traditional menu-based selection), text input of private key or received signature (with an option to generate a new private key), and finally display of the signature or signee address (if valid) respectively.
- JS code performing the following functionality:
  1. Accept an arbitrary file.
  2. Append the characters "\x18Bitcoin Signed Message:\n".
  3. Twice SHA256-hash the resulting data and then sign the digest with the provided/generated private key.
  4. Display the signature encoded in Base64.
  5. Verify signatures created in this format, using this page, calculating the signee address for a valid signature.

Note that there will probably be practical filesize limits due to speed.

For that I bid 4 BTC, escrowed through anyone reasonable.

I would also consider selling the 5 to one person and offering a hosting plan for a year if anyone is interested in that the cost would be 550 LTC.

For the rigs and the hosting, or the hosting alone?

How exactly should I access that FTP server? Authentication is required, and the standard anonymous credentials aren't accepted.

1) Do exactly what they want and try to forget about the fact that you are giving personal data to a company with a history of leaking personal data. This is what most people do.
2) Forget about the BTC and let them keep it.
3) Take them to court, they might pay out instantly to avoid even more negative publicity but don't count on it. If you are American taking them to court might not be too hard as Japan has been an American occupied territory with a semi-autonomous government since WWII.

No appealing options in the bunch, alas.

You can withdraw your drug money by trading you BTC for old rickety chairs then making a bridge out of em and charging a fee to cross it.

I wasn't aware "old rickety chairs" was a currency that MtGox supported, and even if it was, I doubt I would be able to withdraw in it anyway.

Thanks for the assistance, what of it there was. Unfortunately, it seems the answer I sought doesn't exist.
14  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: What methods are there to withdraw from MtGox without verification? on: May 04, 2013, 06:22:57 AM
You should have verified yourself BEFORE conducting ANY sort of transaction on Mt. Gox. Always do the paperwork beforehand so that you don't get any surprises later on. Now you can either jump through hoops to verify yourself or cut your losses. I bet you'll choose the former regardless of your privacy concerns.

My account was created before verification, at least in its current form, even existed, and I had no idea that this could happen. In hindsight, of course, you are correct.

Q: Why is my account pending review?

A: There are 3 main reasons for this.
You transgressed one of the following Mt.Gox rules as follows:
- You have more than one account.
- You are using services like TOR, VPN, or any public networks
- You are not making deposits or withdrawal with your personal account.   

Do any of those apply?

My ISP uses shared IPs, so I suspect that's where the confusion lies. (A support rep indicated something to do with multiple account on the same IP) Obviously, I have no control over this, but that didn't seem to deter them.

Thing is I'm not verified, and I can still move Bitcoins in and out.  Maybe something happened with his account that triggered it?

Irrelevant. He needs to verify to get his coins. That is all that matters now.

Thanks for the straight answer; that was more than support managed to give me.

Is it possible to terminate an account as described in the ToS and withdraw that way?

Should they wish to terminate their agreement with Mt. Gox, Members may close his/her Account at any time.


Upon termination, Members shall communicate a valid bank account to allow for the transfer of the currencies held on their account. Said bank account shall be held by the Member and shall be located in the same country from which funds initially originated (and in the case where funds originated from several countries, transfers shall be possible only to a valid bank account from which significant funds originated). Bitcoins may be transferred to a valid bank account only after conversion into a currency. Mt. Gox shall exercise reasonable efforts in transferring the currencies as soon as possible following the Memberís request provided, however, that any transaction fees levied by any bank intervening between the paying bank and the receiving bank (including the paying bank and the receiving bank) shall be deducted from the currencies transferred.

I have a MtGox account (about a year old) that I had used a bit upon opening it but not much until recently, when I deposited around 40 BTC, conducted some trades, and now have (about) 52 BTC.

Unfortunately, my joy was dampened significantly upon discovering that I am now seemingly unable to withdraw this balance via any means I can find; even upon attempt of Bitcoin withdrawals as low as 0.01 BTC, the system returns an "Account Pending Review - Please Verify" (paraphrased) error. My "Funding Options" page lists daily withdrawal limits as 100 BTC / 1000 USD, as it always has, but this seems not to be reflected in my actual ability to withdraw funds.

I have never channeled large amounts of funds through this account, I only possess one account, and I have never accessed it through Tor.

As I have no desire to verify due to privacy concerns, I'm curious as to what methods, if any, exist for withdrawing funds from an unverified account, preferably ones that do not take too long.
16  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Enquiry about current services used in this forum on: April 27, 2013, 04:52:34 PM
Also another things occured to me.Since I still have questions to ask,I was looking into selling off debts that people owe me (as I'm owed 5BTC from bad loans on top of more substantial debts in real life due to defaulters and I was hoping the BTC world can offer me advice,solutions or a way to offload these debts)

I may have asked this before (but I can't recall as it was made more than a year ago,that query) but since a lot of things have changed on here,what is the best way to go about this as I need to recoup some of the losses (I understand that debts can only be sold off from 2% to 15% of the debt's value at most according to wikipedia and accepted practice in the financial world).

Is this possible?


I've got around 2k BTC in bad debt, all completely worthless. It entirely depends on the lender. If you're talking about private debt from an anonymous scammer, don't even bother. A provable account balance on a defunct exchange might or might not be worth something. In any case, don't expect the rules of the "real world" to apply here - identified individuals using fiat currency are far different from internet forum users using bitcoins.

trying to get 1 extra zero per each adjective? XD

Hopefully a little more than zero.

I think he meant at the end rather than the front.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Will "satoshi" ever login again? on: April 25, 2013, 01:49:37 AM
Do you think "satoshi" will ever just randomly log in one day and post something?

No. He's still here, I suspect, but retaining that identity was unnecessarily dangerous.

It seems as if that would be the only way for "satoshi" to ever be proven to be who he is.

Now I very much doubt he intends to do this, but there are certainly other and more reliable ways: signing a message indicating his identity with an address that's provably his (e.g. the genesis block reward address), for one.
19  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Enquiry about current services used in this forum on: April 25, 2013, 01:31:31 AM
Well based on your responses,the standards on this forum have definately changed.People are more to the point now and troll less (which is better for me but wil take some getting used to)

Don't make sweeping conclusions on the nature of this forum based on my replies. I'm probably atypical, and generalizing from a singular data source is a horrible idea anyways.

Writing skills I meant as a response to people who still say they're hiring others to write articles for them,not that I'm offering full time services as a writer as my schedule is too busy to allow this.

Trying couldn't hurt, to be sure.

Didn't realise that this was forum policy for bitmit links so I accept that.

It isn't; it's my policy.

Do you honestly think that people are silly if they only want a working HDD just to install their mining software/OS? The SATAII drive will be useful,the other one not so much (as most people don't use IDE anymore for nearly a decade and only those with really old PCs still use them)

The vast majority of miners can use a flash drive for storing the OS. Again, trying couldn't hurt (much), but don't expect miracles.

I simply wanted to bring the experience I saw outside BTC into the BTC world,that's all.I thought it was innovative at the time.There is a demand for this,just not from users of BTC for some reason unlike other sites that ask people to buy film credits to crowdfund a film.

Fair enough, but I agree, you won't find much demand here.

Didn't really account for shipping outweighing the fan's value (worth about £9 last time I checked and shipping would be UK only to address shipping costs) so thanks for the tip.

You Brits get ripped off for computer fans, apparently. If someone will really pay that much, it might be worth it.

I'll give computer hardware a go for the Mi-Fi and computer parts (question is,is the other stuff worth selling here as eBay always has a buyer for everything.People here are much more selective than that.)

It's a gamble. You avoid Ebay's astronomical fees and annoying payment systems, but you give up a lot of potential buyers. I would suggest trying here (or Bitmit) first and moving there as a last resort

It was my understanding that people were looking for DVI adaptors (guess I didn't realise people were still using DVI to VGA on this forum to create dummy plugs)

Dummy plugs are no longer, in many cases, necessary - and new GPU miners are a dying breed. But as with above, if you can find a buyer, what I say matters little.

I would like to know if I've addressed your points properly.If not,please ask me to elaborate. Smiley

As no proper way to address my points ever existed or will exist, you could not have done this. Don't worry about it.

In most of the developed world, torrenting is illegal, and that never happens, right?

People with fancy suits and fancier titles like to utter grandiose declarations. You can choose whether or not to care.

Apples and oranges.

I don't think you realize the strength the Chinese government has in China and how quickly and how hard they can crack down on something and how common it is for most citizens in China to know to dare not challenge it.

In America we can speak out against anti piracy laws and torrents, we can hold massive protests if we wanted to. We can call in and flood congress with our views and desires.  In China you can't.

In China they can and do arrest/torture/and kill people for going against the government. It would be all to easy for the govenrmetn in China to say bitcoins undermines the government and throw someone in prison for life or worse if they engage in bitcoin. And you know what, most Chinese people would have no choice but to accept that due to the fact that few people want to risk those type of punishments.

I concede my lack of domain knowledge pertaining to the Chinese government's actual power inside their country. That said, they are neither omnipotent or omniscient - cracks exist, and they will be found. Passionate individuals will find ways around limitations. This may limit adoption, perhaps even severely, but it cannot completely stop it - and if the rest of the world accepts Bitcoin, China's hand will be forced, or economic damage of unimaginable magnitude will ensue.

it's possible some day, that's a very long ways away though. Decades perhaps.

First before we focus on something like China we should probably fix the problems bitcoin in general has now. Like lack of security and stability. Bitcoin will never be this utopia global "currency" until even the most basic problems are fixed and that might still be quite aways away and it's not inconceivable that it won't even be bitcoin that is the winner, but something else that comes along.

When and once that happens then maybe we can talk about "passionate inviduals" willing to lose their life , their careers, their family , basically everything, to fight for something like bitcoin.  China and Chinese civilians have a lot bigger and more serious issues to deal with,  I don't see bitcoin coming into the picture for at least a decade or more if bitcoin is even the main player by then.

Don't mistake me for an idealist. My point is simply that China's government has limits. Note also that there's a significant difference between advocating for Bitcoin and merely using it.

And I completely agree: Bitcoin has problems; quite a few serious ones. However, I strongly suspect that if we fix those, with a bit of luck and a bit of time, the China problem may well fix itself.
