another thing to consider though is as the price of bitcoin rises the incentive to break the underlying cryptography in a hidden way goes up with it. has there ever been such a large incentive to break a cryptographic system out in the public like this before?

and thanks i'll check out that article

Sure, there is a huge incentive to break this crypto: all the banks are running it. If crypto is broken, bitcoin might be the last thing to come under attack, as it is a relatively small thing.

Can't you just set up a bitpay or coinbase account? You could always just try sell the Bitcoins yourself too.

You are certainly right that one can do it himself. However, for a substantial amount of money BTC/USD volatility is certainly a risk, especially if (fiat) money is needed in the short term.

In the worst case, I will write emails to both bitpay and coinbase and ask about their policy with respect to individuals.
6  Economy / Trading Discussion / bitpay for individuals? on: January 28, 2014, 11:07:43 AM
Is there something like bitpay for individuals? Meaning, can I sell stuff for e.g. USD using bitcoins as means of transaction?

Say, I would like to sell a car for a certain amount of USD, the buyer pays in BTC, and the BTC get instantly converted to USD that I can withdraw to my bank account.

Thanks!

So what is the last SEPA/Japan withdrawal somebody made and how long did it take? It would be nice to have some reliable info from the community to compare with the FAQ.

I should have gotten some sleep before posting Smiley

Sorry for resurrecting an old thread but I think this is not that stupid after all (not an elegant solution either, I admit).

As far as I understand, an implementation of niko's solution would be to maintain a list of 50 addresses of 0.01 BTC in each one of them (generated at home), and give the required number
of them in the form of QR codes to the seller (who typically is a brick-and-mortar with internet connection) . Assuming that

1. there are no problems with network fees

and

2. rounding error of <1$ is acceptable to either the seller and the buyer

this would work nicely Smiley

Has anyone been thinking about protecting against compromised computers? Could something akin to Trezor be used to keep the secret info away from the computer memory?

Are there any requirements on the version of the usb ports? Can I plug my Bitburner to an old laptop with USBv1?

what are you some sort of russian spy or something?  Tongue

what are you going to get life in prison over should your security become compromised?

C'mon, this is the interwebs, do not take everything that is being said that seriously Smiley

Mr. bitpop is probably just having some fun here.
12  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: Total hashrate jump (100 -> 175 Th) in 10 days? on: June 07, 2013, 04:13:33 PM
Does anyone maintain a list with number of many miners/chips are being sent out and when? Thanks!

Edit: there is one here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=216358.0 . Not sure how reliable though - would be glad to see a competing effort.

Summer? What summer, winter just started here, mean time I'm reading Patrick Rothfuss' " The wise man's fear", sequel to  "the name of the wind", could be very prescient.

Seconded! Excellent fantasy books, highly recommended.
14  Economy / Securities / Re: [BitFunder] Kenilworth Exploration - Real World Mining Opertunity with Bitcoins on: June 04, 2013, 01:35:12 PM
107/gt AU would mean 107 grams of gold per ton of ore (AU is the chemical symbol for gold).

Deprived, thanks a ton!

Prendergast123, is there an estimate of how many tons of ore are there? Is that what the numbers (US$ 19.1 million etc.) are based on?

15  Economy / Securities / Re: [BitFunder] Bitbond - 2% weekly bond. Early bird special! Launching Jun 6th on: June 04, 2013, 10:25:30 AM
Are there any questions?

OK, let me be the elephant spotter here Smiley

Why would we trust you? As numerous scams have already showed, a national ID is not quite enough to get the coins back.
16  Economy / Securities / Re: [BitFunder] Kenilworth Exploration - Real World Mining Opertunity with Bitcoins on: June 04, 2013, 10:15:21 AM
Kenilworth Exploration has already a single hit of 107/gt Au-Gold in our one diamond drill.

Could you explain to us what "107/gt Au" means? Some general link to a relevant glossary or list of terms would be appreciated, if that's faster for you.

Did you consider the high volatility of BTC/USD? How will you protect yourself again fluctuations, or will the shares be denominated in USD?

To prevent MITM attacks against deposit addresses, we now sign a message containing a user's deposit address and their username. The bitcoin address used for signing is 1PVmqfC7GcpPVg5jTTGHuv49EwAB8tEqwM

Damn, TradeFortress, you are good - fixing everything in no time!

However, I am still surprised that you don't just do the HTTPS thing. It is easy and cheap, is it not?
19  Economy / Lending / Re: CoinLenders :: Get bitcoin loans, and earn interest on your deposits! on: May 23, 2013, 05:57:04 PM
When it comes to discussing the website, I would like to (annoyingly) point out, that HTTPS should be the first priority Smiley
Why?

If I remember rightly it uses a client side Java environment which populates / fuels the pages so the likelyhood of HTTPS representing any additional value to security are................................
Well, some man-in-the-middle can still be done. The attacker cannot get your password, but they can change the site ever so slightly, e.g. the deposit address, and then it is already unpleasant. Disclamer: I am not using coinlender services, so it could be that some sort of MIM protection is already in place.
