I'm trying to use Blockchain for Android for the first time on a Nexus 7 and it crashes on launch.

I can see the stack trace on the Report menu, but don't know how to copy that and paste it here so I'll manually type what it looks like the problem is.

Caused by: android.support.v4.app.Fragment$InstantiationException: Unable to instantiate fragment

This is on Android 4.2,

  • Our user's funds will actually be held at the Credit Mutuel under the user's name, they will be separate from Paymium's funds (on the other hand, all of other exchanges funds for example sit in the same account, and are considered by their bank to be their corporate property)

Bitcoin-Central currently operates a BTC/EUR market and a BTC/GBP market (and still has the BTC/USD market showing on the site, without support for offers currently).  Does this mean GBP, USD and any other funds will be held at Credit Mutuel as well?

  • Our user's accounts will be protected by the "Garantie des dépôts" which is the French equivalent of the American FDIC
Presumably this protection applies to just the EUR balances for each Bitcoin-Central account?[/list]

I was fairly certain that no bank outside US would touch US citizens with a 10 foot pole, thanks to US's numerous financial regulations.

Here's the most well known example of that:
 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_Account_Tax_Compliance_Act

So in order to know which accounts are held by U.S citizens (so as to be compliant with FATCA), will Bitcoin-Central then need to require verification of identity of all accountholders who wish to continue using the exchange?

Now more SMS numbers added, and all the numbers are listed in the contact page. In case the main number doesn't work, you can try others.

Our new gateway is nexmo, which focuses solely on SMS messages, therefore it should be more reliable than twilio.

When there is an offer sent to me in response to an ad I had placed, I don't learn of it until some time has passed as I don't check e-mail as frequently as is needed for this.

I was thinking I should change my e-mail address for LocalBitcoins to the e-mail gateway for my mobile service, but then I would not have the link for the offer in my e-mail as well.  

Preferably, what I would like is both a text message alert whenever a new offer is received (or for additional messages from the person making the offer) as well as the existing e-mail.  

Because I use GMail, I can add a "filter" and have the messages from "communication@localbitcoins.com" forwarded to my mobile SMS/text messaging number, but I think this secondary notification via text messaging would be a a nice feature if built into localbitcoins itself.

Would you consider either adding a checkbox to have notifications sent to my SMS number for my LocalBitcoins.com account?   (And then format the SMS alert respectful of the 140 char limit).

Or if not, how about providing the ability for me to add multiple e-mail addresses for notifications and I'll simply add my SMS / text messaging gateway number:

Funny, but thinking about it, it can't be that hard to bang out an app to do an NFC Bitcoin transcation between mobile devices. I mean I'm too lazy to do it, but I don't think there's any real object in the way other than a bit of skill and time.

Or it might be easier to just download Bitcoin Wallet for Android from an NFC-enabled mobile and click "Send".

We are sorting through the backlog of tickets due to Dwolla and Bill Pay changes.

The FAQ still shows the following:
 - https://campbx.com/faq.php    <-- Under "Money Deposit Methods"

Quote
P2P Direct Deposit:
If you have a verified account, we offer P2P direct deposits from four major banks in the USA:
Chase
Bank of America
Wells Fargo
ING

Is this what is meant by the "Bill Pay" support from this thread?   

If not, is a Bill Pay still available?

From another thread

I've read on this page https://blockchain.info/wallet/faq:

Quote
Why am I being asked to include a "Miners fee"?

 A miners fee will encourage bitcoin miners to accept your transaction more quickly. Sometimes if you don't include a fee your transaction will never get confirmed and will be returned to you in approximately 24 hours.

I cannot understand what Blockchain.info is doing that would "return to you" transactions that don't confirm in 24 hours.

Once a transaction is broadcast it ends up in the transaction memory pool for tens of thousands (or more) full nodes.

You can't spend the coins again because those nodes won't accept another transaction with the same coins -- it is a double spend.  Eventually the original transaction will get mined.

Does this message need clarification, or am I misunderstanding something?
2728  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: 1mBTC and below bitcoins on: December 04, 2012, 09:24:34 AM
that I can send bitcoins without paying for the transaction fee but it may sometimes fail as I understand. So I could use/abuse this to avoid paying for the transaction fee? Is there an average chance if any, that I could successfully send bitcoins without paying for the transaction fee using blockchain.info's My Wallet?

Where there are instances where transactions will not confirm for hours and hours or even a day, I cannot understand what Blockchain.info is doing that would enable them to say that they will "return them" to you in 24 hours.  Once a transaction is broadcast is ends up in the transaction memory pool for tens of thousands (or more) full nodes.  You can't spend them again because those nodes won't accept another transaction with the same coins -- it is a double spend.  Eventually the original transaction will get mined.

I've asked this on the blockchain.info thread:

There's a performance issue with the site right now.  The page starts to load and then stalls before eventually loading the remainder.

Also, are you sure it is wise to load external javascript?   If that were to intermittently or selectively replace the bitcoin address it could cause misdirected wagers.

When i parse the JSON data for blockchain output volume I am seeing a couple of gaps:

  - http://blockchain.info/charts/output-volume?timespan=all&format=json

After 1346350505 (Aug 27, 2012) the next one is 1346609705 (Sep 3, 2012).
After 1347128105 (Sep 7, 2012) the next one is 1347387305 (Sep 11, 2012).
After 1348078505 (Sep 19, 2012) the next one is 1348251305 (Sep 21, 2012).

I received a code for a free yubikey and am not really interested in it.

Please say that the reason you are "not really interested in it" is because you prefer Google Authenticator or some other 2FA method, or aren't using that account anymore, or ... anything other than "username and password are fine".
2732  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Underground business... on: December 03, 2012, 10:38:59 PM
The problem with the notion of illegal business is that it's nonsense. The business name for an illegal venture is criminal enterprise.

Exactly.  A criminal enterprise.   Here's one such example:

Hello everyone. I'm quite new to the world of Bitcoin and I just got here around the 2nd week of Nov. I always go to websites like bitvisitor.com, dailybitcoins.org, coinad.com, bitcrate.net and chromaticcreative.net/bitcoin/kabm/ to name a few so that I could get some free bitcoins and somehow get involved or learn new things from the Bitcoin world Smiley.

But as I read the bitcoin wiki, I've learned that by default sending bitcoins would deduct a 0.5mBTC unless the transaction is smaller than 10KB and all outputs are 0.01BTC or larger

Right.  So but that is a per-transaction, not per-coin.  So you might have dozens and dozens of these 1mBTC, but when sending all of them at once, you only pay 0.5mBTC.      So just let them accumulate and the amount of the fee gets smaller and smaller as a percent the total transaction amount.

But bitcoin wasn't built for microtransactions.   Sure you can do them inexpensively today, consider it to be mostly just a temporary occurrence.

0.5mBTC is still less than a penny.

If you want full control, you can use a different client that doesn't impose a minimum fee.

Blockchain.info/wallet is one such wallet.

 - http://Blockchain.info/wallet

You can even import all your existing private keys into Blockchain.info/wallet and spend there.  (Or use the Blockchain.info/wallet's desktop sync browser plugin to sync the private keys).
2734  Other / Off-topic / Re: Droplet - disruptive mobile payment on: December 03, 2012, 09:54:15 PM
I wish someone would create a system like this with bitcoin as the backing currency. Initially people would load up their accounts with their country's currency, but eventually folks would realize that they can both send and receive money without ever converting to fiat.

Or if exchanges were to be able to use it.  From another thread:

This is a little different from PayPal for payments transfer because (presumably) the app requires location tracking (geofencing), and thus a lesser chance of claiming it was not an authorized payment.

I'ld be curious if this would be a tool used for either low-cost bitcoin cash-out (payment send via Droplet, from a trusted party) or for face-to-face transactions where there is less risk of carrying physical cash.

Of course, this has the same level of being traceable as bank transactions do, so there's that.

But since Droplet accepts credit card, this is not the same as a Dwolla though.

Why not make it that every 10 bets you send out the winners to everyone on the list.

While that might reduce a little of the amount of data in the blockchain, it would be a nightmare for support.

KISS - Keep It Simple Stupid

One bet.  One payout.

Simple.

Given a link to the payout, nobody should be left with any doubt that they were paid (once it confirms).

I paid cash at cvs a week ago and still have not gotten gox code.

Now that you have one post on this forum, you have the ability to send a PM.  Try that and please report back in a day.
 - http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=21181

THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE

There are many reasons a purchase may see difficulties in getting completed.   There are daily limits that are in place.  Sometimes people try to send an amount over the limit or multiple transactions to try to get past the limit.   These payments go through MoneyGram.  MoneyGram may not always complete the transaction.  

But the biggest question I have is ...

Since when does BitInstant give out Mt. Gox codes?

If you transfer to Mt. Gox, you needed to enter your Mt. Gox account number.

Is there the possibility that the instructions were misunderstood and there are now issues in completing this transaction?
