I have no specific reason to doubt integrity, but verification is always desirable.
2  Economy / Trading Discussion / Mt. Gox - direct withdrawal reliable? on: January 27, 2011, 02:29:42 AM
https://mtgox.com/users/withdraw: "If you live in the US or EU we can send it to you by direct deposit. Minimum withdraw amount in the US by direct deposit is $800. There is no fee."

Has anyone used this before? I would like to know if it is reliable.

I think you have mistaken "public key" cryptography for normal cryptography. Please read this, if that concept is new to you - Bitcoin uses this technology for coin transfers. Otherwise, I must misunderstand you.

I do not believe that this is a problem. When some receives coins, they have no way of telling who it came from. So if the hypothetical exchanger* and the seller shared usage data, all they would know is that you (and many other people) bought coins, and that someone sent coins to the seller.

Of course, this is my understanding, and I'm not an expert.

Agreement with DannyM. Bitcoin should not be centered around criminal usage.  Not only will it hamper Bitcoin's usage for legitimate usage, it will also harm Bitcoin's image (thus killing its potential to spread). Focusing Bitcoin on illegal uses is short sighted.

Thank you. I have updated my "Accept Bitcoin" buttons and banner (version twos) to use your new coin.

With satoshi's release of the new official Bitcoin coin graphic, I've updated my entries to use it. Choices are now between my recreation of the old coin and satoshi's official new coin.

You have a valid point, fergalish. However, I think that more important than the total "economic importance" is the total human rights fulfilled. It is in the spirit of "Better to let 10 criminals go free than to condemn one innocent man".

But I suppose a counter argument is if higher criminal "economic importance" would cause more human rights violations than were prevented. So, indirectly, you may be right.

This thread has moved off-topic. I am interested in reading more responses to NewLibertyStandard's initial questions.

Advantages:
- Resist/protest unlawful/unfair taxes/government
- Prevent privacy intrusions (financial records) from governments/banks/corporations
- Counter-economic force

Disadvantages:
- Criminal usage (including money laundering)
- No means of refunds or fraud insurance

Which is more important:
The advantages will always be more important as long as there are more regular users than criminal users and there are no better methods for a user to gain the advantages.

That is fine, BitcoinFX. I invoked Copyleft just so that everyone could do such things. Simply, you may do whatever you want with them except claim they are your creation and try to sell them.

I am glad I could help you in your efforts to promote Bitcoin.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Make your "we accept Bitcoin" logo on: February 26, 2010, 05:26:59 AM
Here is a different version of my design, to your specifications. I hope you find it acceptable.




Again, I will accept and may utilize suggestions.

Writing "bitcoin.org" on paper money is not good, I think. Is it not illegal to deface money? Does Bitcoin need to come to governments' attentions in form of a crime?
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: New icon/logo on: February 25, 2010, 02:28:49 AM
I like them. Do they come in higher resolutions?
Yes, the original is 546x531 pixels.
Excellent. This would be a good resource for those participating in the banner contest. Why unequal dimensions?

My only suggestion would be to make the coin's text stand out more. At tiny resolutions outlines tend to be come unworkable, so a better option may be to experiment with contrast. Making the text significantly darker than the rest of the coin would likely increase readability. Alternately, you could make the inner circle color darker, and the text lighter.

I see. However, Copyleft is a general concept, and GPL is not its only form. For instance, there's also Design Science License or Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike. But if you want to adopt my images, I can simply drop the Copyleft.

Also, I thank those two who have donated to me. You did "made my day", and encouraged me to make artwork for Bitcoin.

18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Make your "we accept Bitcoin" logo on: February 24, 2010, 06:00:34 PM
I am not that picky. Growth of the Bitcoin network and promoting more widespread usage is sufficient reward to me.
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Make your "we accept Bitcoin" logo on: February 24, 2010, 07:02:05 AM
Public domain? No. My images are Copyleft, to myself (satoshi or any other Bitcoin developers can have the rights to these images, upon request). In practice, Copyleft works almost the same as public domain. You are completely free to use, share, or modify my images. If you do, please consider listing me in your credits or donating an amount of coins to me, but this isn't required.
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Make your "we accept Bitcoin" logo on: February 24, 2010, 05:10:34 AM
Good ideas. Updated:






These may be used freely by all, but I will graciously accept donations: 1BHtsCnpmTvpgJEP7eMKEVhpJFunxSM8vq

EDIT) Added smaller versions, inspired by Ensayia's submission.
