Suggester: I suggest you start your own chain, SuggesterCoin, and given it's overall superiority to the current bitcoin blockchain yours will surpass bitcoin usage very soon. Cheers.

Yes, Berkshire Hawthaway has been punished in the marketplace for having such a high price. /double facepalm

Plus it is so much easier to buy fractional BTC than fractional BRK/A or BRK/B.

I'm starting to really enjoy these "Bitcoin can't succeed because (choose one: mining too hard/early adopters getting rich while I'm new to it and poor therefore it sucks/govt will shut it down/deflation can't work/the cryto sucks/if someone spends X million$ they can take over and shut it down/lost coins are gone forever/it's not backed by anything/it's anonymous and won't be accepted/it's NOT anonymous all transactions are public/it needs inflation/it needs *insert random monetary policy* theory/terrorists and child pornographers and drug dealers use it/it's just like egold, liberty dollar, flooz, or beenz/mining is cracking passwords and everyone will be arrested)" .. ad infinitum.

The more I read them the better I feel about the long-term prospects!  Grin

90%+ of these Ops are just bitter.

If you are excited by Bitcoin the technology and can understand the value behind it, i.e. fast, frictionless, semi-anonymous transfers of money without involving third parties, then you would probably see $7/btc as dirt cheap. If you don't see the value in it, look a little harder at the current choices of bank checks/wires, western union, paypal, snail mail, etc. See it now?

but haters gonna hate.

Reduced juice available on every England Premier League match tomorrow. The title may be wrapped up, but the relegation battle is pretty crazy.

Also reduced juice on NBA and NHL Playoffs, and a full lineup of daily baseball action.

Check it out at - 5+ month track record with positive reviews on the forums and on the OTC Web of Trust.

Have you been audited, and by whom - Can you prove no logs are stored? What data is captured for authentication that it is a real, paid user (connecting IP, etc)?

comparing post times to buy times? You have no idea the impact of this thread. Nice try, but total fail.

I'm not sure what turning your bitcoins upside down will do, but hey, worth a shot.  Grin
231  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: I'm curious about a slow transaction on: May 12, 2011, 08:04:41 PM
Yes, can someone show the raw tx details? so we can check with block explorer and anyone running a node who saw that raw 'double spend' tx? Might be informative for a lot of people here. thanks.
232  Economy / Marketplace / Re: Bitcoin is not used as money anymore on: May 12, 2011, 04:03:27 PM
Disagree. My site has become much more active with the BTC/USD growth.

The key is getting interest and demand from new users. Yes, that drives mtgox price up, but also provides a bigger universe for products/services.
233  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: outline for a simpler virtual currency on: May 12, 2011, 02:28:43 PM
Look, rather than have 5zillion posts about 5zillion bitcoin variants - i.e. "Better Bitcoin", it's pretty simple. If you want InflationCoin, or CentralizedCoin, or TimedecayCoin, or FlameCoin, or SuperTripleSHA2048Coin then BUILD it. Publish the code. If people think it is a good idea they will come on board.

The fact is that Bitcoin is structurally 90% 'perfect' - different people may want different things from that last 10%, but the fact is most of us accept that and agree to work over time with the small needed enhancements.

These allegedly BetterCoins are just a massive distraction from where the focus should be, nailing down the last 10% of real Bitcoin: fee/spam balance, block size, wallet encryption, other defensive measures (port flexibility, improved bootstrapping/fallback nodes), and thin clients (headers only).

Agreed.  The new Mt.Gox beta websockets feed was announced weeks ago.  I was sure somebody would have coded up a real-time updating NASDAQ Level 2-type market depth monitor by now.
If MagicalTux isn't already working on this for the new version of Mt.Gox, perhaps a bounty is in order?

Ya, Dollar cost averaging is a good idea in something this volatile.
237  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: [RFC] New TX fee: 0.0005 BTC on: May 09, 2011, 08:25:11 PM
Please, just abolish this minimum fee. (If you remove this standard fee policy altogether it would be great too Wink)
Oh god no, in-discriminant transaction relaying means DDoSing becomes way too easy.

Agreed. .0005 sounds about right, maybe a little low. But if it appreciates more then should be just right.

I'm as skeptical as anyone about the security/trust issue involved (double-spend card attacks indeed) - but I think you've done great work so far, really impressive. Look forward to seeing future use/enhancements.
239  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: How to establish reputation for site operator on: May 09, 2011, 01:11:03 PM
It is a long, slow process. I should know Smiley

Basically just be transparent with your users and they will likely give you a try and slowly build more trust.

Many start by just sending 1 coin, and then withdrawing it immediately - out and out scam checking. Then they may send the coin back, bet it, and if they win withdraw it immediately. Then slowly they will send larger amounts, checking the withdrawal system often, making sure bets/payoff amounts are exact, etc.

Getting a few positive reviews in the forums or other bitcoin related sites helps ( - seemed to drive some users) - even just a simple 'Ya, I won and I got paid' can really help. Eventually people will start sending 10,50,100 coins or more if they like your service.

Good luck with your site.
