Feature request:

Ability for me to cause a new deposit address to be generated for my account. 

Currently, the blockchain shows all my deposits to a single Bitcoin address for my wallet at LocalBitcoins.

The whole concept of there being a new Bitcoin address for each transaction is so that privacy is maximized.    If I am restricted to a single Bitcoin address, then someone might figure out from a deposit transaction to LocalBitcoins which transaction was mine and then see how many coins I've deposited since I first created my LocalBitcoins account.

Found this article on Bloomberg, and made me think about the recent run up in bitcoin. Could it be that deep pockets are moving into alternate currencies? Has anyone else heard of the Better Than Cash Alliance? I thought that already existed, and it was called Bitcoin! I worry that the sheeple will use whatever their overlords tell them to use...

From another thread:

It took me just fifteen minutes of listening to Bill Gates on Charlie Rose to confirm that billionaires don't and won't like BItcoin.

Mr. Gates throws around a lot of "we did this" type of statements, and what he really means is "we used our power and influence to get governments to do this".  I'm not saying the accomplishments were bad, but anything that lessen's a billionaire's influence will not be something the billionaires will support.

I haven't look for awhile.  Anything new?

Are there any Bitcoin futures/options exchanges with enough liquidity to make them functional?  Something with low enough transaction fees that would make hedging practical?

The volatility is what makes there be essentially so few methods to trade futures.
2166  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: LocalBitcoins on: January 22, 2013, 12:51:56 PM
after a seller has funded the transaction; can they withdraw the funds?

Can the seller withdraw the funds, or the buyer?
With LocalBitcoins, the word "reserved" could replace the term "funded". 

So a seller reserves funds for the transaction.  The seller can cancel the transaction at any time though, and get the reserved funds back.  Essentially a funded transaction simply proves that the wallet for the seller's account does have X bitcoins in it (and confirmed).

To make the funds available to the buyer, the seller needs to release the funds.  This can be done via SMS (using the release code given previously to the seller) or through the web interface.   Once the funds are released, they appear in the buyer's wallet and are already confirmed so can be withdrawn immediately.

If the buyer has internet access, the wallet can be monitored and managed via the web interface.  If the buyer does not have internet access, then the seller provides the release code. The seller only would know the release code once the funds were truly released.

They were beta testing a new online bank method, but then removed it.  I'm not sure if they just had to remove it to rework something or if they no longer are planning on offering it.

What i can do with gift certificate?

You can send it to me [as I'm paying for it].

So yes, I am looking for your price for you to pay 3,000 INR to Milap to purchase a 3,000 INR gift certificate.  

So I pay BTC some amount of BTCs to you.
You pay for a 3,000 INR gift certificate (your cost is 3,000 INR)
You receive a gift certificate e-code
You deliver that e-code to me (encrypted with my GPG public key, preferably)
I make the microloan under my account funded with the funds from the gift certificate.

So I need to know what amount, in BTCs, you are asking to make the 3,000 INR payment.  It can be credit card or Netbanking.

[Update: Through a different offer posted elsewhere I've completed two of these INR-denominated Milaap gift card purchases now.  Worked fantastically!]

Sorry but nothing of this i can send Lol!

Well, maybe you simply send information.   A lot of bitcoiners in North America, Europe, and elsewhere are freezing their nards in the middle of winter. 

Maybe there is a vacation travel outfit in your area which would be interest to someone, where BTCs are sent to you and you pay BRLs to the travel operator (or you pay the reservation deposit and then simply convert the BTCs to BRL on the traveler's arrival).
2174  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Which services automatically convert on reciept of funds? on: January 21, 2013, 01:35:27 PM
- walletbit
 Bitcoin to Danish, SEPA or International. EUR, DKK, USD, CAD
- bitpay
 Bitcoin to ?

With Mt. Gox you can get conversion on arrival of USDs to BTCs, or from BTCs to USDs because that exchange allows order sizes that exceed available funds.  So when the funds arrive, they are automatically traded against the open, unfilled or partially filled order that is outstanding.

Also, their merchant services tool has an "autosell" flag so that the funds are automatically converted to fiat, without having to mess with leaving an outstanding order.
2175  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Arbitrage on 3 exchanges? on: January 21, 2013, 01:18:38 PM
Does anyone do it between exchange and across currency?

With the help of forex services like CurrencyFair and TransferWise, an individual might find success performing arbitrage against multiple currencies.  For instance, after converting USDs to EUR, you might then be able to buy BTCs on a BTC/EUR market with those EUR at a less cost than what it would have cost using those funds before converting to EUR.

One problem with that is that some exchanges (e.g., Mt. Gox) require that the account the funds come from must be the exchange account owner's own account.  When doing the EUR transfer from CurrencyFair, the sending bank account is CurrencyFair, not the individual trader's account.  Not all exchanges have this restriction.

There's some decent info on arbitrage opportunities here:
 -  <--- Delayed, unless purchase the premium subscription.

Anyone have bitcoins to sell for cash, post or send pm with the price you want to give bitcoins to me.

I would like to make a microloan through Milap.

I can fund the loan using a gift certificate.  

The gift certificate can be purchased by you with INR either through Indian credit card or through Netbanking:
 -  <-- Click Contribute, then enter your name, e-mail, city and country.  
Then choose Currency INR and enter 3,000 Rs. enter "Water" for Cause.

Please PM your quote of how many BTC in exchange for your 3,000 INR that would then be paid to Milap.

2178  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: SatoshiDICE 50% sent neither a positive or negative response on: January 21, 2013, 11:13:00 AM
Happens. Just wait.

The funds for this specific wager included as input a transaction that itself had not confirmed.  SatoshiDICE puts itself at risk of a double spend attack by revealing win/loss when a wager includes either spammy transactions or unconfirmed transactions.  So once the wager transaction got a confirmation then that is when SatoshiDICE processed the wager and the payout followed immediately and was confirmed in the following block.

So to avoid this from happening in the future, use a client like Bitcoin-Qt that won't let you spend unconfirmed funds.  If you insist on using for this, then there remains the risk of this type of scenario happening.  There's nothing that will speed it up, so just be patient.

I have an account at coinbase,

If you simply need to lock in the price today, purchasing through Coinbase lets you do that.  The coins are delivered when the ACH transaction completes after a few business days.

Dwolla works well if you already have funds sitting at Dwolla.  If you need to draw funds from your bank account, that process will take a few days.

Cash can be deposited at Chase bank and the funds applied to your exchange account.  The only problem is there isn't always sufficient liquidity.  At this particular moment there is an ask order at about the same level as at Mt. Gox.
