1  Economy / Digital goods / Re: [WTS] 💲 💲 Amazon eGift codes 🔥 USA 🔥 💲 💲 [ESCROW ACCEPTED] on: October 27, 2022, 03:42:59 AM
I have Amazon US at 85% UK at 80% and eBay at 85%.


BUYERS BE AWARE, I JUST GOT SCAMMED BY THIS GUY.

Here's how the GC scam works, I bought $100 worth of GC and went first.
He then sent about 24 Amazon codes valued from 4.1 to 4.98,
Only 5 Codes out of the 24 worked, All others had already been redeemed.
So I got only about $22 worth of vouchers, and lost about $63 in BTC.

I would give him the benefit of the doubt, let's say if he had acquired those codes from unknown/unverified sources,
but he's simply ignoring all my request to respond now, typical scammer behavior.

DO NOT Trade with this guy.



Edit/Update: He has just responded after this post, saying he was away, asking me to get on telegram to communicate further. I'm not sure what telegram can fix, but we'll see.

Edit 2: He did pretty much redeem himself by sending me the correct amount, So all is good for now.
I do not know what happened with his list of codes, but I need to clarify that he did fix it for me in the end.

So does more tx mean it takes more time/power to solve a block?

Sell it for cash then buy more BTCs.

I do not follow this "pirate" thing, nor do I know much about any GLBSE listed "assets".

However, please consider the following hypothetical GLBSE listed company.

Someone places BMMM IPO on GLBSE. The company does not disclose what they do, however they pay rather good dividends. Everyone is happy (for now).

What they do is the following, they convert BTC's into USD's and "invest" it into a piramide scheme http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MMM-2011 run by http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergei_Mavrodi that reportedly currently pays up to 50% per month of "dividends". BMMM pockets 30%, pays out 20% to their "investors". They also hope that with such "profitability" they will be able to accumulate enough money to buy out the shares once the "master ponzi" breaks down.

see also (google translate if needed) https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=77316.0
and read up on to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stockholm_syndrome it might get applicable.

The above is a ponzi scheme by proxy which BTW is pretty close to what all the investment banks out there are doing with the central banks and ultimately the fed being the "master ponzi".

Wow, a pawn ponzi inside of a master ponzi? This post opens my eye Shocked

Please explain how exactly are you going to protect the network against government threats.

How are you going to prevent the government from physically taking over those "trusted" nodes?

I think the trusted nodes are spread around the world, with backup nodes setup ready to go live when something happens... You can just copy the "trusted" wallet to a new server, install solidcoind, set the config to trusted-node-mode, and the network will continue... So the US-Army has to find the new location and send the special forces there, enough time to setup other servers...

Just one question... Why the US army? I think you should be more afraid of the Greek and Portuguese army.

I don't think ALL of the trusted nodes are located in Greece or Portugal Smiley

Wait a moment there... You said the trusted nodes were spread around the world... If the US-army tried to come to my country for one of their special-ops I wouldn't be pleased and I would kick their ass myself.
The US doesn't own the world. Or do they in your own twisted vision of it? Because if the US can invade ANY country, so can Greece or Portugal...

Stop being so US centric, it annoys people, you know?



WAIT!! YALL DO KNOW THE FACT THAT ALL OF THE TRUSTED NODES RESIDES IN SOMEONE'S MOM'S BASEMENT, RIGHT?

Teraminer, just grab your cell phone and shoot some video of the FPGA in action. If you have one running it shouldnt take 10 minutes of your time. That should be good enough proof to assert you are not just trolling. In theory, it could still be a more elaborate hoax, but I kinda fail to see the point in anyone doing that.

maybe he doesn't really have a real prototype running yet, it's all in the brains.
12  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Recycle lost coins on: September 19, 2011, 08:28:22 PM
A better Lost Coins recycling program:

Instead of losing all 50,000 coins at once if someone forgot about it for 3 years...

Make it so you lose only 10% of coins that's been idleing for 1 year

so an address with 50,000 coins would have 45,000 after 1 year, 40,500 after 2nd year... and so on

if this is indeed lost BTC, eventually it will gradually be redistributed into the econ again...

if this is someone's idle address, he would still be able to recover more than half of it after 5 years.

Smoothie, you really should insist on honoring that bounty. Positive or not, fact is at one point, everyone saw your bounty up in the official thread, you can't just pull out like that, it would certainly damage your rep as a hero member around here.
