41  Economy / Services / Re: 1 Bitcoin BOUNTY for info on Michael Moriarty. Owner of 50+ bitcoin sites. on: November 07, 2014, 05:53:43 PM
The amount of spam I'm receiving from this dude's operations is growing steadily ... he's the "meetup organizer" for meetup groups in more than a half dozen cities (including L.A., San Francisco, and .... Vancouver ... that's a red flag), and I see nonstop spam/announcements from his other sites I joined to monitor.   This is getting worrisome ... is he pulling a long con?

Incidentally, that goes to

blockchhain.info/MTGOX-LOST-BITCOIN-FOUND

which is meant to deceive the user into thinking the page is from the site blockchain.info, but it is obviously not.

49  Bitcoin / Meetups / Re: Bitcoin Kenya Meetup (Nairobi) on: October 16, 2014, 02:03:46 PM
Does the Meet Up venue accept Bitcoin?

Neither Pete's Coffee nor Brew Bistro (the two host locations, to-date, for the monthly meetup) accept Bitcoin yet.  They are both located in office buildings with startup incubators (Pete's Coffee is in the building that hosts iHub as well as USHAIDI, Brck, GSMA, & others, and Brew Bistro is in the building that 88MPH sits) so there are plenty of techies, many of whom would pay with Bitcoin.

Perhaps once BitSoko starts rolling there will be more merchants in Kenya willing to put up the "Bitcoin Accepted here" sign.

Do you know whether it is legal to sell bitcoins in Saudi Arabia?

Saudi Arabia has lots of "informal value transfer" network activity (e.g., Hawala) though I don't know what is considered "legal". 

Perhaps there's more info from these sources:

So join that meetup group if you haven't yet and it'll send you e-mail when any upcoming meetups get scheduled.
52  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Orphaned blocks and transactions on them on: August 27, 2014, 06:23:05 PM
I don't think transactions can get lost? that would be ridiculous  Huh

Happens all the time.

Transactions that don't confirm (e.g., with six confirmations) eventually get dropped by the miners (due to the limited size of the transaction pool which is in-memory only.)  http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/9709

There is even the possibility for a confirmed transaction to get "lost".  That happened with the March 2013 hard fork where a customer deposit to OKPay had confirmed, but then that customer took advantage of the hard fork situation to create a double spend against OKPay.  Due to the situation, the miner that included the double spend (BTC Guild) had already known of the original transaction on the v0.8 side of the blockchain fork but then included the double spend of that same transaction when they switched to solving blocks on the pre-v0.8 side of the fork.      So BTC Guild "lost" the first spend transaction -- likely due to re-starting the client which, at the time, had no method of pulling the transaction memory pool from a peer or from permanent storage.   

That's a very, very rare situation.  Though it could have been a $10,000 loss to OKPay had the customer not returned the funds that were double-spent.

54  Economy / Speculation / Re: Question For Bitcoin OldTimers on: August 25, 2014, 09:48:18 PM
Halving was already priced in to the exchange rate by speculators -- so it occurring didn't cause a shock.

Halving was not really considered by most miners.  Many of them were pretty surprised to see their yield drop (in terms of XBTs) by half.  Some of these miners had bought mining hardware because buying at an exchange was difficult, at best.  So when the returns (in terms of XBTs) dropped there was some buying pressure once they discovered that methods available from the exchanges had improved.

Now that a much greater part of the world has exchanges, that buying pressure from the miners that came with the first halving won't repeat for the second halving.

Since many miners sell much of their bitcoin revenues, this next halving will likely have a bigger impact on liquidity after the halving occurs than the first one did, IMO.   i.e., the loss of supply of $50K /day (calculated as 3,600 XBT/day at $14 each) had a lot less impact than will $1 million/day (calculated as 1,800/day at $555 each, or whatever it will be then).

What about you? Do you value your credit scores?

Sorry for the necro thread post but I thought this was relevant.

Americans In Debt: 35 Percent Have Unpaid Bills Reported To Collection Agencies

Poverty Is Profitable: 1 out of 3 US Consumers in Debt Collection
 - http://huffingtonpost.com/peter-van-buren/poverty-is-profitable-1-debt_b_5630444.html

Oftentimes the debtor gets reported, but then the next time they go to the bank to get a car loan or something like they they are told they need to pay off the debt owed before the bank could even consider lending to them.   So this "leverage" that the lenders have seems to do a decent job of recovering a fair amount of previously bad-debt.  When even that doesn't get the debtor to pay up, once in collections there are often threats of it going to court to get a judgement (which can result in "enforced judgement" that includes garnished wages, attachment of assets, liens on property and bank levys).

Does Bitcoin provide a relief from this for many?   A freelancer receiving Bitcoin income probably isn't worried about garnishment of wages or a bank levy even.

Also, a borrower with bad credit in the fiat world might still find lenders on BTCjam or BitLendingClub.  It's like a second identity since the fiat world uses one trust system and the peer-to-peer economy uses another.

Thoughts?
