people who will not be able to signed up for re billing.  Is there any way around this concern currently?

Subscription payments are used with pull-based payment methods (e.g., ACH, credit card, etc.)   At the protocol level Bitcoin is a push-based payment technology.

There are no payment processors yet today that support subscription billing.  Eventually some provider will provide this.  It will probably involve the subscriber having to keep funds in a wallet with the payment processor in which the processor draws from at the subscription renewal time.

user can simply donate to the website by clicking on it (which will launch bitcoin client with pre-filled address).

See URI scheme, BIP 21:



Creating and parsing "bitcoin:" URI Strings:

This is the easiest part, which is fully-documented in BIP 21: URI Scheme.   Here a simple example of how you would include it (using my donation address, of course!)

I am new to bitcoins and would like to signup with an address

You can get a bitcoin address from, and then print it:

Or from Instawallet or EasyWallet (but don't forget to bookmark, and/or print the URL as a backup):

so I can send people bitcoins.

That's a little harder as it requires either mining or getting coins sent to you, like after purchasing them from an exchange or a local trade:

2285  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: TORWallet - Scammer on: January 31, 2013, 10:56:41 AM
Can someone explain how the coins have not even moved from the address?  If they are "running away with the coins,"  how are the coins still in the wallet and have not moved? 

Nobody else has the private keys for the wallet so there's no need to spend the coins.     The time that a wallet has been hacked and the funds are spent by the thief right away is because that is what the thief needs to do to prevent the rightful owner from spending the funds.  But in this case, there's no other party with the private keys.

I seem to remember a MtGox historical data CSV download somewhere, but can't seem to find it now... looking for, say, the price at the close of every day, or something like that.  I don't need every trade, just trying to figure out a price I can use for each day that's mostly accurate.

If you click "Load raw data" on BitcoinCharts (below the chart) you can get an HTML table with the prices.  Enter a date range and use "daily" granularity, for example:

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

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.

2295  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:

Dead Man's Switch?

Casascius "accidentally" creates a 2-party escrow GUI.

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.

2300  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.
