We just added 30 Bitcoin Key's to our stock. Get them while they last!

The product page for each shows out of stock at the present time.  Is the site always accurate, or any ETA?

I tried to withdraw my BTC but they got frozen by bitmarket.eu for no reason (they are normally frozen when you initiate a sell transaction which I didn't, I just tried to withdraw).

FYI, another related thread:

I had an easy setup with two-factor authentication and while the message when I have sold Bitcoins has told me to expect the ACH to go through in five business days, it actually went through in two.

I had cashed out through CoinBase as well and the funds for the 4:52 pm PST sale were in my bank account about 36 hours later.
2724  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: bitfloor needs your help! on: December 09, 2012, 05:15:15 AM
I received a little over 1.7% of my held balance back.

If the exchange rate goes up much more that would make it harder on BitFloor.  It is like taking out a  BTC loan and then having to repay from dollar-based income.
2725  Economy / Services / Re: [CLOSED] CellCoin on: December 09, 2012, 04:57:46 AM
We at Tangible Cryptography LLC have decided to close CellCoin.

That's unfortunate.

BitcoinWireless has not yet launched either.  That least BTCBuy as the sole remaining source.  Each month I refill my mobile phone service (currently Virgin Wireless prepaid, previously T-Mobile prepaid) and use either CellCoin or BTCBuy and have had great experiences with both.

i have nearly 200 coins that i need to convert into gbp

where is the best place to do so quickly and with the least charges  

For that size of traction the best cash-out method might be to simply trade at MTGox's btc/GBP market and then do an international bank wire.  

You could break it up into multiple trades at various exchanges and perhaps come out a little better.  They are often individuals buying for cash through LocalBItcoins.

Or the bitcoin-otc marketplace also might help you find buyers.  

Here is a thread from someone looking to buy a smaller quantity.

If you live in Czech Republic- how do you cash bitcoins,are there any companies which facilitate this?  Smiley ta for replies etc.....

You might ask  buybtc.cz, maybe they might be looking for a local source or perhaps might know of a local trade option for you.

There might already be someone listing an offer near you. There are many listings in which you will find a buyer paying with CZK.

2729  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Blockchain: List of nodes blockchain.info is connected to on: December 07, 2012, 11:41:11 PM
as it states the list of nodes that blockchain.info's bitcoind is connected too. You can't see all globally running bitcoin clients

I don't even know that Blockchain.info needs to be able to connect to it to list it.  If node A connects to node B, node B would share the IP for Node A, but node A doesn't necessary need to allow an incoming connection.  And thus if Blockchain.info's node learned of node A through node A it might list it even though it cannot connect to it.

I don't know if they are doing that, and doing so would make it trivially easy to pollute Blockchain.info's list of nodes.

Bitcoin Nordic accepts cash-by-mail (GBPs) for the purchase of bitcoins.  The are in Denmark:

2731  Economy / Gambling / Re: betsofbitco.in shooting its self in the foot with listing fees on: December 07, 2012, 10:30:26 PM
A listing fee disincentivizes people from contributing new submissions which in turn hampers the diversity of options available to people who want to place bets which in turn reduces the appeal of betsofbitco.in.

The listing fee is 0.1 BTC.  That's worth about $1.30 currently.  If the submission earns enough commission the submitter can actually profit.  The break-even is 2.0 BTC in losing bets.

Essentially if a bet statement doesn't yield at least 2.0 BTC in losing bets it probably wasn't well written or of sufficient interest to a wide-enough audience.  i.e., in my opinion, the site is better off without cruft.  Fewer submissions that are of a good quality are better than many submissions of little interest.

Also, this hurdle might help cause bet statement authors to think it through a bit more.  For instance, if a bet is so obvious, few will bet what ends up being the losing side.   So while the bet statement may end up with a ton of bets placed, if there are hardly any losing bets there is hardly any gain for those who bet the correct way.   So with some  "skin" in the game, the bet statement author might develop a bet statement to where the outcome is less likely to be easily predicted.

Should you have a bet statement you'ld like to submit but are holding back because of the 0.1 BTC submission fee, I created a thread for requests / suggestions:

2733  Economy / Exchanges / Re: Bitcoin-Central, first exchange licensed to operate as a bank. This is HUGE on: December 07, 2012, 01:33:10 AM
  • 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]
2734  Economy / Exchanges / Re: Bitcoin-Central, first exchange licensed to operate as a bank. This is HUGE on: December 06, 2012, 08:52:12 PM
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?
2735  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: [ANN] LocalBitcoins.com - a location-based bitcoin to cash marketplace on: December 06, 2012, 07:28:07 PM
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:

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?
2739  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:

17 BTC up for grabs so far! Good luck!

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.
