With this service, you can pay your bills with Bitcoins.

Is this payment sent by check only, or is the USD payment delivered electronically?

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.

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.

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:

Other clients might have similar capability.

Eric Schmidt:
Quote
"Bitcoin is a technological tour-de-force, what I don't know is whether ultimately it's going to be legal; because all money structures need legality for various reasons, including fraud and those sorts of things. It's too early to say."

Bitcoin doesn't help Google.  Google does quite well with the restrictions in place today.  It doesn't have to compete with individual engineers raising capital on their own through equity crowdfunding.  Instead because the State doesn't allow engineers to raise capital thorugh equity crowdfunding, Google gets to hire those engineers instead.

Fortunately, Bitcoin doesn't need Dr. Schmidt to look favorably on it.   The market will decide if there's a place for Bitcoin.

1049  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: From address on: April 24, 2013, 12:05:59 AM
As you might notice from my sentence.. first few words indicated that I have researched it, but since I haven't found anything useful, I thought I'll ask for help.
And instead of asking it, it would have been very nice of you to point me to the right direction.

The word "sender" may be confusing.   There are INPUTs and OUTPUTs in a transaction.  You are asking how to know what were the INPUTs to your transacion.

Raw transactions API will give this info.  Here's a thread on it:

As was pointed out, getrawtransaction <txid> 1    will do the decode for you.

So given a trasnsaction hashi, get the raw transaction then decode it to get the UTXOs used.

[Edit: And the typical disclaimer here ... payments from a hosted (shared) E-Wallet account will show an INPUT that is not for the same E-Wallet account as the party that sent the payment.   That's why SatoshiDICE includes the warning about only using approved clients like Bitcoin-Qt/bitcoind, Multibit, blockchain.info/wallet, etc., and to not send from an exchange or hosted (E-Wallet) services.]
1050  Bitcoin / Technical Support / Re: Yubikey (general two factor auth) question on: April 23, 2013, 10:54:06 PM
Can I use it as a two factor auth for ANYTHING ?? or are they specially designed for BTC wallets ?

If you want to use a Yubikey with Mt. Gox you need to order it from Mt. Gox.   

There are other services which use Yubikey.  That Yubikey from Mt. Gox is customized and will not work with other services.  You can use a Yubikey obtain from Yubico with those services.   

You don't want to share the same Yubikey with more than one service.

1051  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: MTGox to UK bank on: April 23, 2013, 10:23:40 PM
or will I receive USD into my UK account and then change myself from there (preferable as I know some good methods of exchange)??

Yes, you would withdraw USD as an International bank transfer and your bank would do the conversion to GBP (less conversion fees).
1052  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: UK Funding options on: April 23, 2013, 10:21:40 PM
What's the catch?

Mt. Gox got rid of redeemable codes.  There no longer is a path from Mt. Gox to AurumXChange.
1053  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Best practices for trading person to person for cash? on: April 23, 2013, 09:44:42 PM
Does anybody have any tips/best practices for doing this? Outside of the obvious such as meeting in public, etc etc - more on the mechanics to make sure both of us fulfill our ends of the bargain.

Tips for local transactions

Now TransferWise have had the rug pulled from under them: Their bank has told them to stop transferring money to Bitcoin exchanges.

CurrencyFair is a suitable replacement for Transferwise for those in the UK (and other countries they support), correct?
1055  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: I will create a forked bitcoin chain on: April 23, 2013, 09:08:21 PM
I think nodes do this by default

Nope, if the transaction includes any INPUTs from a block post-fork, that transaction would be invalid on the Bitcoin blockchain side and those nodes would not relay the transaction. 

However, long term support would require BUY-IN from the existing BitCoin developers because at  some point they will lock-in a block CHECKPOINT outside your fork.

If the fork is trying to use the same port (8333) and it gained a following (i.e., a lot of nodes using it) then likely the Bitcoin-Qt/bitcoind client would treat these as harmful and possibly require an update to address this thread (e.g., have the client disconnect early after some threshold of invalid transactions is received).
1056  Bitcoin / Technical Support / Re: Transaction sent 7 hours ago still unconfirmed? on: April 23, 2013, 08:55:11 PM
Oh I see. What is the recommended fee?

Well, to avoid the transaction being considered "low priority" a fee of 0.0005 BTC would do that.  Additionally, if the transaction is larger (greater than 10K bytes) the fee can be higher.
1057  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Why is bitzino making money when others are failing with better software? on: April 23, 2013, 08:01:37 PM
Hmm. I should have launched our site a couple of years ago when it was actually built.  Now looks like it will be lost among the competition...

I don't think you have any idea of the size of the potential market.     Sure, if you are doing blackjack, video poker, craps and roulette there's already many competitors so grabbing share will be a challenge based on great site design, higher payouts, etc.  

For instance, SatoshiCircle came out of nowhere, has a beautiful design, and is entertaining.

I presume they will not regret their effort to build, launch and operate their service.

Title says it all. If you spot celebrity endorsing Bitcoin, post it here.

I figured the Winkelvoss announcement equaled "peak bitcoin" for a while.

- This game is currently Android only.  I am working with someone to make an iPhone client and I hope it passes certification.

I still have an Android device so I'll be able to take a look, but my mobile is a Blackberry 10 (Q10) device.  I'm seeing a lot of Android apps that can be packaged for BB10 without much effort.
