201  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: is it safe to set core frequency to 300Mhz (Extreme) for avalon? on: April 04, 2013, 09:56:17 AM
I've been running at 300MHZ for a couple of days (in an air conditioned room). It seems to give around 71GH.

Itís just not true that people are doing multiple billions a year of Bitcoin transactions. The number is well below that $ billion of the outstanding value of the currency.

It seems nobody in the comments section on Forbes has taken issue with this... so what is an approximate figure for the yearly USD value of Bitcoin transactions?
Is there a site with a regularly updated estimate of this?
203  Economy / Trading Discussion / jewelry - not much available for Bitcoin? on: March 30, 2013, 01:57:19 AM
I'm a bit surprised there don't seem to be more options to buy fine jewelry for Bitcoins by now.

There is allthingsluxury.biz :  some quite nice stuff - but a fairly narrow selection that have genuine gemstones or at the finer end of the spectrum.

tiptopgem.com in Thailand looks great for quality gemstones, and they also do custom work - but they don't really have a catalog of existing jewelry.



Dress jewelry in the sub $100 range seems to me to be the sort of thing a girl will pick up on a whim when looking at it in person.

A guy buying a gift...  well if they're anything like me, they are not interested in buying something cheap with glass.
I expected to be able to find more pieces in the USD $300+  range.

Anyone know of any other jewellery stores accepting Bitcoin?



edit: I mean come on - Bitcoin is not all just geeks who want computer gear right!??   Some of us have spouses/girlfriends/boyfriends to appease about the whole 'obsession' Wink

Time to prod them about it I think.

2 bad auto payments were removed - balance updated.
PPLNS shares all look reasonable.

The world is watching so lets not give them a repeat of the last crash without any flaw within Bitcoin itself.
There will be a final crash one day - hopefully not too long from now, so that it doesn't destroy too many people's savings - because there are indeed fatal flaws within Bitcoin itself. I just hope to be able to have some fun and take some of the wide-eyed fanboiz' money until then.

I too see a fatal flaw.
It's not clear to me that the Blockchain can be transported in the exodus to different star-systems once our Sun starts to die.  I just don't see how this can be done in a decentralized manner and still be considered the same Blockchain - especially, considering our ancestors decendants will possibly not be evacuating to a single new location.




FIFY

If you want to dig your ancestors out of their graves to send them on a starship you could, but I don't think any of them will be up to using bitcoins.


But surely 'we' being such technology fans - will have uploaded ourselves into computer systems or otherwise morphed - so 'humanity' as a whole can be (loosely) considered our ancestors . As mere un-enhanced humans will be the last to leave the planet - it's they who will last be using the original unmoved blockchain.

Well ok - yes  that was an embarrassing mistake   Tongue

I see a payout on my btcguild account for 1BTC  at 2013-03-23 08:58:11 AM
Wondering why I wasn't seeing it in my wallet by now - I look at the 'Transaction Link' for it, and it links to:
http://blockchain.info/tx-index/12039 

Anyone know what this means?

211  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: store.avalon-asics.com - "prepping for batch #3" on: March 18, 2013, 10:49:15 PM
Strange.... exciting?  Undecided

I can normally login and see me order status here:

http://store.avalon-asics.com/?product=avalon-asic-batch-2

But even that redirects to the 'prepping for batch #3' page.


Where's my batch #2 Unit!?!?

Not everyone has even received their batch #1 unit.
It seems to me that the tail end of batch #1 were a bit unlucky... with I suspect, the longest time between payment and delivery - all during a bull run in BTC prices just to add to the pain a little.

What is the link to the BTC guild home page supposed to tell us?
214  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: Instawallet maintenance on: March 13, 2013, 04:55:32 AM
I believe this issue can also crop up if you use the instawallet android app.

It seems that the app can display a Bitcoin address which is no longer associated with the wallet.

I think a new version of the instawallet app needs to be released. If there had been a new version, I would have updated prior to using it.
It didn't occur to me that the Bitcoin address might have shifted underneath me!

Analysis: Banks find NFC a buyer's market
Would you like anonymity with that?

...
Meanwhile, those that are keen to bypass banks and card schemes and their pesky thirst for data have been busy building mobile apps for decentralised digital currency Bitcoin.

Bitcoin may not deliver as much anonymity as cash, but in a world where banks, card schemes, social networks and retailers are increasingly finding ways to connect data on consumers, itís likely to keep chipping away at traditional banking.

Can an online market for meth, smack and pot win?
An Internet marketplace for drugs called Silk Road is continuing to profit despite legal attempts to shut it down

Jeb Boone

...
Rather than getting busted, Silk Road appears to be getting more robust.
...
To avoid the easily-tracked trail left by credit cards, customers must make purchases usingbitcoin ó a digital currency championed as a way of maintaining online privacy. Bitcoin is not completely anonymous on its own, but it can be customized to obscure a userís identity.
...
Still, law enforcement agencies are thought to be devising strategies to take down online offenders using vulnerabilities posed by bitcoin.

And banning the service would come with its own collateral impact. For example, bloggers in places like Saudi Arabia and Vietnam can use bitcoin to pay for hosting services on WordPress, reducing the likelihood that local authorities could discover their identities.
...
To stem the flow of drugs into the online market, law enforcement may need to rely on the skills acquired in policing hacker collectives rather than regulating a burgeoning market for online currency. In spite of bitcoinís use for illegal online purchases, the transaction is not dissimilar from a typical cash purchase of drugs in the real world illicit marketplace.

Will The Commonwealth Bank Support Bitcoin?

Luke Hopewell

http://www.gizmodo.com.au/2013/02/will-the-commonwealth-bank-support-bitcoin/

...
So why arenít big banks supporting Bitcoin yet? Well according to a tweet from the Commonwealth Bank, we just might see it in the future.
...
This might just be the Commonwealth Bankís social media team being nice and doing its job, but itís not absurd to think that a big bank could get involved in the Bitcoin game in future, is it?

Even conversations I have had with senior Commonwealth Bank executives demonstrate that the bank is certainly aware of Bitcoin at a decision-making level, so whatís stopping it from being here tomorrow?
...
Either way, we have asked the Commonwealth Bank about their position on Bitcoin and will update you when we hear back.

With over 700Billion in assets - this is a pretty big bank. I think this is just a polite tweet - nothing more... so yes, for now I'm pegging this as absurd!

Tabletop Bitcoin ATM Is Huge for Payment Privacy

It looks like a high school science project, but this countertop machine may be a bulwark of financial privacy in the age of digital money.
...
Now, with a device that directly converts paper cash to bitcoin anonymously, the interaction is between human and machine. The value of that subtle difference should not be underestimated.

In bid for credibility, largest Bitcoin exchange moves to Silicon Valley
Move is designed to make Bitcoin more accessible to American consumers.

http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2013/02/in-bid-for-credibility-largest-bitcoin-exchange-moves-to-silicon-valley/

The world's leading Bitcoin exchange, Mt. Gox, has announced a partnership with the Silicon Valley startup Coinlab. Under the agreement, Coinlab will handle Mt. Gox's American operations, which account for a large majority of the exchange's business.
...
As a Japanese firm, Mt. Gox struggled to develop the partnerships it needed. But according to Vessenes, CoinLab's location and conventional investor backing allowed the firm to score a partnership with Silicon Valley Bank.
