Bitcoin is actually the *best* possible thing to sell via credit card, because you can prove you sent it, so you should be able to trivially win any disputes about whether or not you delivered the goods that were purchased.

Then go ahead, try sell bitcoins for credit card payments. Then tell us how it is going. What? The chargeback fest killed your business? That is the reason why no one sells bitcoin via credit cards

So this being the case, does this mean that if I in future move any funds out of cold storage, I need to back up my wallet again?
YES.

If the client you use does that (send the change to a new address) then YES, you have to reprint it. This is an important thing often overlooked.

1)Good luck, this is not e-gold, this is not paypal. There is not a company, central server or anything similar in the bitcoin network. It is totally decentralized.
2)Try selling bitcoins on mt-gox and getting cash, call us when you finally receive it...
10)Not our problem. Wrong section. Ask to Obama.

Please show source of Satoshi owning a 6th of all bitcoins?
Who mined coins in 2009? Satoshi and, at most, some other people, note how difficulty was stuck at 1 for like a year or so, this means only one or so cpu were mining.

This is a method of trying to discredit Bitcoon by trying to tie Satoshi to DPR. Then they can try and tarnish the whole thing by smearing him.

An absurd attempt, it shows how much desperate they are

You forgot fees. Millions of transactions means tons and tons of fees.

474  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Why would anyone spend their coins? on: November 22, 2013, 10:58:24 PM
Because tomorrow the bitcoin price can happily crash. When you are in a bubble, you should sell/use the coins before the crash  Smiley

Also, the price in the long term increase BECAUSE people use coins.

You think so? Recent blocks are heavier and thus slower to get  Grin

is it because the synchronization is not finished ?
Yes, so stay calm  Smiley

What is that ?
You installed the Bitcoin-QT client, it is a full node client, it means that it not only act as a wallet but it also download the FULL blockchain of bitcoin, wich means every transactions done and relay it to other nodes. The bitcoin network is a p2p one, so the full nodes relay all the transactions between them.

Quote
It takes a lot of time
Yes, it is downloading more than 10GB of data and verifying them all.

Note that you do not need to have a full node, it is meant for people who want to run it constantly, having a full node when you use it only for 5minutes every some days is pointless. Get Multibit for example, much much quicker, for the same security

Oh and make sure you backup your wallet, have no virus on the pc and learnt about how to securely store your coins!

Wasn't that the thing that made Litecoin different from Bitcoin?
Why should not be ASIC for litecoins? Everything that run on a computer can run on specialized hardware. It runs on generic hardware, why the hell should it NOT run on specialized one?

Truecrypt can use AES, Serpent and/or Twofish. You can use them all together. As for hash algorithm you can choose between RIPEMD-160, SHA-512 and Whirpool
