Africa -- the next frontier for virtual currency?

Emily Alpert
2012-04-03

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/world_now/2012/04/bitcoin-virtual-money-africa-rudiger-koch.html


So far the idea hasn't caught on in Africa. Though Bitcoin is based on free software that anyone can use, “we have to admit that Bitcoin is at this point a currency that's almost exclusively used by computer geeks and libertarians,” who are more common in the developed world, Koch wrote in an email. “You can count African Bitcoin users on two hands, literally.”

GPGPU Benchmarks

2012-04-03

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/graphics-card-benchmarks-charts-review,3154-3.html


Bitcoin Mining

Apart from synthetic benchmarks, Bitcoin mining is one of the few practically useful, albeit somewhat narrowly focused, examples for GPU computing. A problem of using Bitcoin mining as a benchmark is that the existing OpenCL miner will typically not support a new graphics card generation upon release. Thus, we have to keep updating the OpenCL miner and benchmark results.

A fascinating (and complex) post about 'mental poker'. (URL dated April 1st - but the topic is too complicated for me to judge if any of it is a joke!)
Reminds me of the Bitcoin brain wallet.

Poker is hard, especially for cryptographers

Matthew Green (cryptographer and research professor at Johns Hopkins University)
2012-04-02

http://blog.cryptographyengineering.com/2012_04_01_archive.html


I may not be a poker player myself, but decentralized mental poker appeals to me, mostly because it would be a lot harder to shut down -- especially if it was tied to a peer-to-peer currency such as Bitcoin. (On the other hand, you'd be playing for Bitcoin. So there's that.)
...
...
This has been a long post, and while I hope it's given some of the flavor of the problem, obviously there's still tons I haven't said.

For example, how do you check for winning conditions? How do you handle players who 'drop out' when the cards don't go their way? And finally, how would you tie the result of the game to a Bitcoin 'pot'? (Bitcoin script seems like a great candidate for this, but unfortunately it's not well supported on the actual Bitcoin network.)

... considering that the ‘alternative’ currency is anonymous, decentralized and virtually nothing is known about the coder that originally created the system – and who now seems to have disappeared…..one has to wonder why it continues to get so much press?

At its core, Bitcoin is worthless.
That people continue to trade the invented digital currency is understandable because it's possible to turn a quick, risky buck.

Prizes
Prizes for this competition will be based on points collected from captured flag files. Top-ranking competitors will all receive a complimentary pass to next year's conference, as well as their choice of one of the following prizes:
A 25 BTC Casascius Bitcoin, courtesy of Trammell Ventures
A Bug Hunter's Diary, The IDA Pro Book, and Gray Hat Python book bundle, courtesy of No Starch Press
wi*spy 2.4x, courtesy of Harris Crucial Security
DIY Security Camera Kit, courtesy of Harris Crucial Security
In addition to the prizes awarded for points, each flag file will contain an encrypted Bitcoin private key which will have some Bitcoin value sent to it. The list of Bitcoin addresses for the keys and their values has been posted here and can be independently verified using Block Explorer. Once the competition is complete, we will publish the encryption key used to encrypt the Bitcoin private keys here on our website. At that point, the "gold rush" phase will be on for the competitors to decrypt and import these keys into their Bitcoin wallet and "sweep" (claim) the Bitcoins for themselves. Each flag file will also contain the cleartext Bitcoin address for the encrypted private key so that competitors may verify the key's value on the Bitcoin network and keep a running total of how much BTC their flags are worth.
GOLD RUSH!!! The encryption key pair used to encrypt the Bitcoin keys included in the flag files has been posted! Grab them here!

Would you consider providing a page to give a device-pairing QR code minus the password,  and a mechanism to pair by manually entering the pass?

I see the device-pairing QR contains the guid + sharedkey + password.

I thought it might be handy to have such QR codes printed out so I could easily change between wallets, but didn't like the idea of having the password included.
I assume the sharedKey shouldn't really be left around.. but isn't really much use to anyone else without the password?


Also.. what is the reason for including ones own active receiving addresses in the autocomplete for the 'pay to' bitcoin address?
It seems a little confusing. e.g  I might label one of my receiving addresses as 'Fred' for funds from him.. but it would be very easy to accidentally send to this address when I later go to send coins to Fred.
Even if you did want to send to one of your own addresses in the same wallet.. it would be better as a hidden more advanced option no?
