I've thought about starting a wiki of how to run MLM style Bitcoin parties at home. If you have all the educational materials you need, it would be easy to sell them. There are already cash for gold parties like this.

What is being sold that would be an incentive to offer a party?  There's no residual income.

A free membership provides shoppers with exclusive benefits from online shopping, gift card purchases,

From another thread:

Comments please good or bad idea?

I've done this transaction (sold bitcoins, withdrew Dwolla and used the funds to buy a gift card through Lyoness.us), and it worked fantastically.

The shipping and handling (S&H) for the card(s) is a $5 per order unless purchasing $300 or more of gift cards in which case the S&H is waived.

The order is sent FedEx.

So this is a 1:1 cash-out method.  You send $300 Dwolla USD you get $300 worth of gift cards in the mail.  The only cost in that instance is the $0.25 Dwolla per-transaction fee*
[...]
But remember, because this is using Dwolla to fund you can cash out at an exchange that uses Dwolla and this method does not require any withdrawal to a bank account.

Anyone in the U.S. can sign up for Dwolla.  You do not need to link a bank account to Dwolla to use this.

Does a merchant that uses a payment processor to convert revenues to fiat fit in there?

e.g., pass-through bitcoiner?

Excerpt:

If you are going to give your interpretation as well then you might want to edit that to make it more clear what is the original FinCEN content being excerpted. (quotes, italics,  line spacing, ...  all are tools available to help distinguish the two.)

Would love to hear any suggestions you might have

There's no text printout of the private key (redeem) or Bitcoin address (load & verify)  in case the QR code cannot be scanned.

Oh, scratch that.  it was just not rendering when I had saved the image.   It would be on the printout.
1046  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: New wiki admins wanted on: April 24, 2013, 10:30:25 PM
I don't know how many people we can elevate to the admin status (currently only MagicalTux holds the rank of beuaorocrat and can appoint new admins).


Speaking of, ...

the WIki is down at the moment.   Mysql error.

MagicalTux (Kalyhost ?) is still hosting the site.

I believe at one time this was explained as something beneficial because it receives the benefit of having DDoS protections from this hosting affiliation.  (as the BitcoinTalk forum also was hosted there).  

I've no idea about the current hosting configuration nor if there are plans for Bitcoin Foundation to take over hosting.

Just wanted to share info as far as how the hosting for how it exists today.

[Edit: It appears the site is getting put on Cloudflare now has been hosted through Cloudflare for some period of time already, apparently.]

[Update: The wiki is back online now.]
1047  Bitcoin / Technical Support / Re: What happens to unconfirmed transactions? (blockchain.info) on: April 24, 2013, 10:11:13 PM
This would make bitcoin unusable for micro payments.

Bingo!

At the time the logic was developed, a 0.01 BTC payment was a "micro transaction".  Now at an amount over a dollar fifty, there are payments which that you'ld think would not be considered micro transactions but the network does consider them as micro transactions.

Paying a fee resolves that.

The Bitcoin-Qt/bitcoind client would have insisted on a fee in this instance.  Blockchain.info/wallet ...  not so much.
1048  Bitcoin / Technical Support / Re: What happens to unconfirmed transactions? (blockchain.info) on: April 24, 2013, 10:09:11 PM
It has been over 30 hours since that transaction was submitted. Is it possible that it can still be confirmed?

Well, the transaction won't even be relayed by the Bitcoin-Qt/bitcoind client because it has an output below 0.01 BTC.

If you had made this transaction from the Bitcoin-Qt client, it will continue to try to re-broadcast the transaction, maybe hourly, and presumably eventually it would reach a miner directly and eventually get mined.

Blockchain.info/wallet doesn't seem to re-broadcast indefinitely.  It seems to abandon a transaction after a certain period of time passes and the transaction doesn't get a confirmation.    The transaction then disappears from blockchain.info/wallet as if it had never been made.

If you need the fund, you could import the private key that spent the funds to another client and try to spend the funds that way.  Of course, that is a double spend and all the other transactions you made using that coin or any children transaction would instantly become invalid.

when I try to download the client I get an error!

Installing an executable from an untrusted source?

Good luck with that.
1050  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: I will create a forked bitcoin chain on: April 24, 2013, 08:45:53 PM
The easy solution is to just send your coins to yourself. This will push them past the fork on the LinearCoin chain.

There's no difference between an address created using Bitcoin-Qt/bitcoind versus inflatacoin LinearCoin.  So me sending to my own address is a transaction valid on both chains.  

So the private keys in my LinearCoin client would be as valuable to an attacker as my Bitcoin-Qt/bitcoind wallet.dat.

I personally am not a thrill seeker who jumps off bridges tethered by a bungee nor does playing Russian roulette appeal to me.  Trying to use LineaCoin without losing my bitcoins seems like an equal challenge.

Changes to Alias Resolving

When a wallet is accessed using an alias if the browser does not already have the wallet identifier saved or have an authorised login session email authorisation will now be required.

I'm not sure this is working.  On a new browser with no cookies or other local storage (Chrome in icognito mode) I enter my alias for Identifier.  The page is reloaded and the ID field remains blank.  Then in another tab I go to Blockchain.info/wallet and there is my identifier.   So the challenge is defeated somehow.

I am planning on donating to Freebanking.org as a sort of insurance (and big Thankyou).

If you figure out a way to donate using bitcoins, please share.  I only saw PayPal.
1053  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: [ANN] coinwidget.com - a Bitcoin Donation Widget on: April 24, 2013, 10:30:23 AM
Please share any ideas or suggestions you may have to improve on this widget.

Thank you for providing a useful donate button (script and graphics).

I do believe the method offered for use could be made more secure for the site operator.  Currently, your site has full access to replace the bitcoin address.  And without HTTP everywhere, there is the opportunity for a MITM to alter the contents, substituting the bitcoin address with another.  Being that these are for donations, I might not even realize that this is happening.

The javascript could be revised so that it could site on my host, or in the same .html as my page.  That would be safer.
1054  Economy / Services / Re: Pay your bills with Bitcoin BillPayForCoins.com on: April 24, 2013, 08:13:10 AM
With this service, you can pay your bills with Bitcoins.

Is this payment sent by check only, or is the USD payment delivered electronically?
1055  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: I will create a forked bitcoin chain on: April 24, 2013, 07:48:57 AM
But you all missed the TRUE OP's goal :
to confuse/delude(or defraud ?) as many Bitcoin users as he/she/CIA can...

Based on the comments right after yours, it looks like that attempt is successful, unfortunately.

1058  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: I will create a forked bitcoin chain on: April 24, 2013, 04:06:30 AM
But they do relay new block announcements. Even if they are off the current chain. Right?

Nope, for two reasons.  Firstly, only if the block is of a greater height than any block the client already knows about will the client then relay it.   Secondly, the amount of coin generated (200 BTC) would fail the block validation logic (as it exceeds 25 BTC at these block numbers), so the Bitcoin-Qt/bitcoind client would reject the block and, of course, not relay it.

1059  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: MTGox to UK bank on: April 24, 2013, 03:52:43 AM
thanks, do you know if there is a possibility I can ask my bank to give me USD and I change myself? OR - dare I say it, should I just ask my bank about this Smiley

Some UK banks allow foreign currency (e.g., USD) accounts as well as domestic currency (GBP) accounts, though that isn't common as far as I know.

Citibank UK offers it:

HSBC too:

Currently I am importing it from a website, but when the website goes down it messes up everything for me. I need this for other coins than bitcoins so there really are not a lot of good stable sites to grab the difficulty level from.

If you weren't aware, from the Bitcoin-Qt/bitcoind client there is getdifficulty API call:
 - http://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Original_Bitcoin_client/API_Calls_list#Full_list

Other clients might have similar capability.
