Is there any alternative to the site now?

When I go to checkout the cart doesn't seem to work anymore.

What's the latest on Bitmit?

Coinabul was surely one of the last ways to maintain anonymity and cashout large amounts, no?

Bit disappointed the way I suggested profit out of the news and everybody ignored it and starting moaning politics again

Maybe not all of us are willing to be vultures picking at the bones of a nation.

? Other way round. If you're betting on peace you can invest in Iran which is a very positive thing.

If you were to be betting on war then you'd be buying arms stocks.

Investing in Iran is illegal in may parts of the world due to trade sanctions. Try again.

You don't deserve my help. The sanctions will soon be lifted and those who could see this will profit.

Great idea.

- One thing that should be clearer is whether you need i2p running in order to run the client with anonymity or whether it actually has it's own support for i2p built in via some kind of library.

- next up, merged mining?

p.s.
on the https://anoncoin.net//Downloads.html page the link to downloads actually goes to https://anoncoin.net//Company.html which is a dead link
yes you need to install i2p if you want i2p support
MM is a bad idea for this coin

if you dont want to install i2p, there are some (less than in i2p) clearnet nodes out there, therefore you can also use TOR.

Cheers for the info. If a client with i2p lib build comes out I'll invest in it but otherwise surely any coin can run on i2p...

Just wondering...
 if you import a private key, use and then delete it again how secure is that compared to generating a new private key and sending funds to the new key?

Not just this for Electrum but also in general too

168  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Which will merge mine? on: August 17, 2013, 07:51:50 PM
So far I see NMC, DVC, groupcoin, ixcoin, i0coin will all merge mine with Bitcoin.

- Are there any more?
(and, other than NMC, is it worth it?)

I've done a few trades, given tons of feedback but I still have no feedback. Seems it's just too much effort for people.

Slightly offtopic but there should be something to make the process of OTC feedback quicker too - just click a button rather than:
connect to irc, ident, auth with gpg, find user you want to rate, ident that user, decide on wieght to rate, rate the user and comment the user.
170  Other / Meta / Re: Please only allow Donators,Hero members to make a thread in Groupbuy section on: August 17, 2013, 12:21:45 PM
Disagree on restrictions. Prefer stronger guidance to encourage due diligence - clear marking and advice on the threads preferably automatic also ways to discern escrow safety
171  Other / Meta / Re: Do you ever click on links in signatures? on: August 17, 2013, 12:14:56 PM
I never used to notice sigs. But then I noticed some people posting useful stuff and I found it's a good way to find out abuot new services. Obviously you got to e careful but the way it works is that the people posting useful stuff tend to have the links of interest. Found out about a lot of new things this way
172  Other / Meta / 'View new threads' gone? on: August 17, 2013, 12:11:18 PM
I can't see the latest new threads where it used to be at the top left of the forum. Is it still there for you?

OK folks. Looking at the news it looks like Iran is conquered now.

So, how can we intimidate benefit from this? Any investment tips which match up with Iran getting back on track now?

This has been really interesting:
- they pay (paid) less tax than us
- they had less inflation than us (before sanctions)
- Tehran stock exchange was doing extremely well before sanctions
- massive spike loss in value on
- I can see USD:IRR price charted in some places but also read in other that USA tried to stop IRR use

Great implementation. You should think about improving video seek and selling the code for it all for people wanting to setup their own sites

 Going on holiday here and would like to get cash via Bitcoin so if you want to buy in cash get in touch

Ah, righto. They are minuscule amounts apart from XPM which is a few dollars. I had to trade the XPM into the other things and back again :p Probably lost it all in the spread, who knows



I can't click the buy or sell buttons anymore. This is the same with Opera, Firefox, Chrome & Midori on linux.
Could be something to do with the javascript auto copy/paste ?

sorry to quote bump myself but can anyone comment?

Jago25_98, it's been a long time since I've bought and sold on Vircurex but I think I recall this bug.  How much are you trying to buy or sell?  I seem to remember that the buttons wouldn't work when I attempted to enter really small values.  I think vircurex has certain amount thresholds and it was quite annoying because the site wouldn't warn you that your values were to small.

In my case, this would especially happen when I would try to get rid of fractional, USD/EUR values.  I think you can only use fiat to by any coin if you have more than .01 of that fiat currency to spend.

In fact, if I logged into Vircurex right now, I bet I have something like .0005 USD and .00001 EUR.  It annoyed me because I wanted to clear my balances but I was never able too.

Note: It's also worth noting that all other exchanges behave this way, however, the others that I have used have always warned me about my errant values.  Those exchanges are MCXnow, BTC-e and Cryptsy.
179  Other / Off-topic / Re: Lavabit.com and Tormail Email Alternatives... on: August 09, 2013, 11:19:06 AM
I think encryption of messages sounds great but not too many people know about it or how to use it and TBH I think encryption is a little difficult to understand. I mean, even Nimda was offering lessons on PGP/GPG encryption here on the Bitcoin forum where you would expect most members to be pretty tech savvy.

Very much agreed. It should be simpler.
I think the key to things like Blackberry Messenger that have become more widely used is that the keys are already generated. I know this is not as good as making sure you generate your own but it means it's alot more likely to be used. The insecurity this brings up only opens up a crack for feds and above to get in and most people only need a little bit more security than they currenctly have.

Thus an example,

 k9mail (or a new app) should automatically generate gpg keys and pair this to your email on install, unless otherwise instructed. The pubkey is attached automatically and al messages signed by default.

Quote
BitMessage is a decentralized, encrypted and peer-to-peer messenger. This program has seen a surge in popularity since the Snowden leaks.
TorChat is an easy-to-use anonymous messenger designed to fit nicely into the Tor environment. It has been widely used across the Dark Net spectrum since before Tor Mail’s fall.
PrivNote is a Clear Net messenger service that deletes notes once they’re read. Silk Road vendor RxKing prefers this service, but others refuse to use it, citing multiple security concerns.
SMS4TOR is a Tor-friendly version of PrivNote that has gained considerable traction thanks to its base a Tor hidden service.
I2P-Bote uses the I2P anonymizing software to provide a decentralized, encrypted, verified email service. The service is only in alpha and, due to its reliance on I2P, will probably not be widely adopted.
Privatdemail is an email service with a focus on privacy (as opposed to anonymity). Here’s a fun fact: You apparently can’t email Israel because the servers are located in an Arab country that forbids it. That policy will not inspire confidence, but even so, Privatdemail is already in use.
RiseUp is an email service built for “liberatory social change.” Users must apply and be approved for accounts, proving that they are activists fighting for positive change, which is whatever RiseUp’s founders deem it to be. In exchange, RiseUp keeps minimal logs, encrypts your data and defends your communications unlike many corporate email services.
Nym is a remailer that allows you to send encrypted emails without them being traced back to you, the sender.
Mixmail is a remailer similar to Nym but is much easier to use. It strips out identifying factors like an IP address, making a quick, anonymous email an easy proposition.
Jabber is a popular open-source, decentralized messaging system. It’s widely used by journalists already, particularly in the Middle East.
Tox.im is a currently-in-development tool that promises to allow encrypted and decentralized video and text chat reminiscent of Skype—only without Microsoft allowing the American government to listen in as they do.
