On that note, do any of you have any suggestions outside of "more usuable?"

What about making a YouTube video similar to this  that explains in very simple terms how to set-up your wallet and trade/buy Bitcoins.

Get hard drives, shaped like coins, designed for the specific purpose of running bitcoin. Storing your wallet, keys and connecting to the network. Checking your balance and transfers. Then mass distribute for bitcoins

I also like this. A simple hard drive that you can purchase

"Bitcoin is the future of currency."
"Bitcoin will skyrocket in price."
"1BTC will be worth $3000 in 2014."

These are things I've been reading on the forums these past few days and I go  Roll Eyes

I do believe that Bitcoin has the potential to change the global market forever, but I think in order for this to happen we need the general public to start using Bitcoin. More people using BTC = higher likelihood of BTC sustainability

The biggest challenge I see for Bitcoin to start getting used by the general public is: usability
Your average person is not technologically savvy enough to understand Bitcoin enough to put his faith and hard-earned USD into it.
I'm not very technologically savvy and it took me hours of reading the wiki and this forum to actually get a somewhat good grasp of how to exchange USD for BTC.

So I think the solution to this is to make software that is user-friendly enough for your average person to set-up a wallet and exchange BTC.

If this doesn't happen BTC will never expand past the techno-geeks and we will all watch as our BTC value plummets...

I don't understand: do you need 130,000 blocks to start receiving bitcoin? ( i have 90,000 now)

I opened a wallet and sent 1BTC from to my bitcoin address and nothing happened. I did not receive my bitcoin and it says "0 transactions". Did I just waste $20??? HELP

I am selling a pretty good portion of my bitcoins. 150 of them for $17.75 each. Price will change based on exchange rates.

I HIGHLY encourage you to PM me and have the both of us chat for a bit if you plan on making a large purchase. That way, we both can get familiar with eachother and know we both feel safe prior to making any large trades. PM me and I can give you either my AIM or my phone number.

You can purchase here:
You can try, no fees, you can use PayPal, and you can use $ or L or . So basically there's no downside compared to your plan, but buyers are checked so you wont get swindled by PayPal buyer protection, and they are protected by their escrow service.
Btw I might be interested in some of your coins at that price. does not accept $USD.

9  Other / Beginners & Help / Is this a good setup for a new rig? on: June 14, 2011, 05:45:38 PM
Hi I'm new here

I just found out about the bitcoin craze (when i heard that LulzSec got a 7000BTC donation lol) and want to try making a rig and creating some bitcoins. I'm not a fool and know I'm not gonna get rich; I just want to do this as a hobby and learn some more about computer hardware.
But I would like my setup to break even, at the very least.

I'm about to buy this setup:

530 watt power supply (
Foxconn motherboard (
2 ati 5830
2 gb RAM
80gb hard drive

what do you guys think? is the power wattage enough to support the 2 x 5830s?
