I can verify that the website has been updated and returns the same HTML from the commit with the description v2.3 (1d067dc4f3103622ca9de332c3c86fc57d76ec83) in github:

To confirm this I first check the sha1sum hash of the html returned by a request to

$ wget --quiet -O -|sha1sum
1d067dc4f3103622ca9de332c3c86fc57d76ec83  -

$ GET -eSd|grep -i "200 OK"
GET --> 200 OK

Then from my repo:

$ git checkout master
$ git pull
$ git log --pretty=oneline|grep "v2.3"
54523d36b2680e8ec231c95b776bc2259f6bb328 v2.3 Vanity Wallet now supports compressed keys

$ git checkout 54523d36b2680e8ec231c95b776bc2259f6bb328

This one isn't about bitcoin itself, but bitcoin was mentioned as the currency used.

Australia court Silk Road
January, 2013
Location: Melbourne, Australia

Abstract: An Australian court hearing involving a man who admitted dealing drugs that were obtained through Silk Road using bitcoins as payment.

Melbourne's County Court heard the black-market Silk Road had been described as a "certifiable one-stop shop" for illicit drugs.
Prosecutor Morgan Brown told the court the website was accessed by software designed to enable online anonymity and a digital "virtual currency", Bitcoin, was used to buy goods.
In what could be the first prosecution with Silk Road a major player, Ms Brown told the court that in two months from March last year Howard imported drugs 11 times.

By a splitting service I mean, you send X amount to one address and it gets split to different percentages to W Y and Z.

Like BTCRelay does?

Feature request:

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

hm? if I click on "wallet" I can see a box to the right with my past Addresses (there is three of them currently plus the "active" one). I think a new one is generated when you send to the current one... but I'm not sure.

Wow, either that's new or I'm blind.  On my wallet page I see a link that reads:
 "Request new address"

Along with the description:
"It is recommended to request new address now and then for privacy reasons."

So, awesome, problem solved!

Is anyone able too sell me bitcoins via pay papal? Il give 450 Aud for 21 bitcoins...

About the only method to buy bitcoins using PayPal is through VirWoX.  To do that, you first purchase Second Life Lindens (SLLs) and pay using PayPal.  Then convert those SLLs to BTCs and withdraw.

In Australia there are many methods to easily purchase bitcoins.

The newest is using online bill payment (POLi payments) through ZIGGAP:

Or if you can deposit cash you have multiple methods:
 - Bit Innovate (at Commonwealth bank or Westpac)
 - Spend Bitcoins (several banks)
 - ZIGGAP (National Australian Bank/NAB)

Here's more info on these methods and more:

We don't condone people intentionally masking their true location, as it's a form of fraud and can be used for illicit reasons.

The term fraud has very specific meaning and I'm going to assume you are misunderstanding that meaning.  Transacting using Tor or a VPN to protect my privacy is not something that violates your terms of service (at least not my preliminary reading of it).    Even if it did though, that is not the definitioin of fraud.

2169  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Personal 2-factor storing of private keys on: January 30, 2013, 05:36:41 AM
I'm trying to come up with a safe way to store my bitcoins where you would need 2-factor to spend the coins. The simple approach I can come up with is to store my private keys in a bank safe, but make sure that the private keys are encrypted with a strong password that only I know. I would then set up a dead man's switch to send that password out in case anything happens to me. This way, you would need to have access to my bank safe and know my password in order to spend the coins. That seems pretty safe to me. Thoughts?

Now the question is, what is a simple way to encrypt my private keys? I need something that's secure but also easy to use to decrypt. Since I have to describe how to decrypt the keys in my dead man's switch email.

Some related threads:

To generate a split key there is a new feature (v2.1) in the Vanity Wallet on

That or how about just a password-protected PDF?  That has the benefit of being completely usable by a layperson given only the file and the password.  This also uses AES under the hood.

Lately I have been working on an iPhone app to implement a BIP 38 tool for the end user.

We use the location of your IP address to show you the offerings that are available to your location.

That means that those attempting to access your site using Tor or VPN will oftentimes be unable to use your service.

The bank's assistant manager looked as me as if I was nuts, so I left before she could call security.

Each bank might have their own handling for non-reversible transfers.  For instance, wire transfers generally require an in-person visit to set up but with some banks repeat transfers can be made via phone or other form of request, depending on what your bank's policy allows.  A similar cash transfer method to the other Chase account might be allowed as you describe (by providing some written instruction).

ZIGGAP is currently accepting these payment methods:

Cash deposit at:

National Australia Bank (NAB - AUS)

Does the site render different based on where it is accessed from?  I don't see either the OKPay or the NAB cash deposit methods.

2174  Bitcoin / Press / Re: 2013-1-28 -- Forbes: Government Ban On Bitcoin Would Fail Miserably on: January 29, 2013, 05:49:32 AM

Because Bitcoin does not require trust in a financial intermediary (e.g., a bank) it is an incredibly efficient method for transferring amounts large and small.  For international money transfers it is swifter than SWIFT (clears in an hour and non-reversible.  It is less costly than PayPal.     

A government that intentionally hobbles its economy by taking steps to outlaw or prohibit the open use of Bitcoin will find itself drop versus competitor nations that are more accommodating of it.

2176  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: [Announcement] Avalon ASIC Ships on: January 29, 2013, 01:18:44 AM
I'm copying a snippet from a post from someone stuck in newbie jail so it was first posted in that forum board:

I wanted to say: When shipping to Europe, and especially France, Belgium, Italy and Spain, please unscrew the antenna and do not put the antenna in the package. The customs in these countries are really butthurt if they think it contains a transmitter for which a CE declaration does not exist. It's not really a problem, you can self-certify for CE, you just need someone in Europe to sign the declaration of conformity. Avalon could provide the required documents, have the receiver sign them (but he is then fully responsible for meeting the requirements), submit them to the customs, and get the package. This would add at least on month of delay for these costumers.

Also, put a CE mark on the box and on the equipment. You can still get the package if it has none (suppose you are the importer who is going to put the product on the EU market and who will put the CE mark on it), but this requires a lot of paperwork and delay.

This is a pretty large box that has a high chance of being opened by the customs if its sent by HK post or certainly if sent with EMS. DHL has little problems, since they do customs declaration in advance, and only 1:100 packages is typically opened.
2177  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: How to remove Private Keys from MTGox? on: January 27, 2013, 01:37:45 AM
I put my private key to MTGox, and
I think it's the reason I ckan't withdraw using it :/

When you add your private key to Mt Gox, they will transfer immediately any funds sitting at that address to your wallet (which is just an accounting entry to them) and then will monitor that address for future incoming transactions and will sweep any new payments to that address to your exchange account.

So once you import your private key to mt gox, you lose all control ot that address in the future.
2178  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Why is there a penny bot? on: January 26, 2013, 03:47:55 AM
Can someone explain to me what a "Pennybot" is?

I think it refers to a bot that seems to be trading insignificant (~ penny) amounts to accomplish some aim.  That aim might be, for instance, to knock the "last" trade price to sit near the highest bid side of the spread. Or it may be to make sure there is a bid sitting just below the ask price, causing a real narrow spread.  When the amounts trade at a penny or less even, the purpose obviously isn't authentic, real buying and selling of positions but to manipulate the highest bid, lowest as or last trade quotations.
2179  Economy / Speculation / Re: The Weekend Dip Myth on: January 26, 2013, 03:40:38 AM
lets see what the price will be after the weekend  Grin

The "weekend dip" isn't universal for every weekend.  At least not the winning pattern that had been recurring over and over.  The weekend dip "green light" would occur when there appears a downturn occurring into the weekend (i.e., at Wednesday evening (west) / Thursday morning (east) grab the 7-day high.  If that is below the previous week's 7-day high, then a downtrend was occurring and selling was more often than not a profitable move as during the weekend an opportunity to buy back would usually be possible.

That trend had a nearly perfect run.  Then it kind of fizzled,

This weekend did not get a weekend dip "green light" as on Wednesday evening (west) / Thursday morning (east) we were seeing a rising exchange rate, when comparing the two week's of 7-day highs.  That doesn't mean it won't dip, it just means the pattern that seemed to repeat isn't being predicted.
