Pointless to bid, but I will offer 16BTC

I match this bid.

Plenty of threads with bold red "THIS IS THE ONLY PAYMENT ADDRESS" in the OP -- would be curious to know how many of those get targeted for scams.

I think this is the best/easiest way to stop scammers.
Any idiot paying another address than listed clearly in bright red and the first line of an OP deserves to be scammed.

The potential buyer must realize you have an auction simply by the fact he got to the first post of a thread.   So, ummm, can't say he didn't know the payment address didn't match, even if the nick, PM, yada yada don't match.

This is a bit depressing. Someone out there is trying to get things, and knowingly causing other people to lose things as a result. Sad

Whoever the scammer is, this is for you.

Ok, I have to admit.  I did look at the photo.   You're way too nice.
I got something far better for the idiot scammer.

To his/her defense, bitcointalk makes it FAR too easy to scam people by allowing such nicks to exist (with special characters).  ` and ' and . shouldn't even be allowed as part of the username.  And, once it is obvious as it is, the scammer/squatter nick should simply be blocked from use.

1088  Bitcoin / Mycelium / Re: Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet on: March 16, 2015, 08:35:36 PM
I think that would create more problems then it creates.

Even with how it is currently, I ran into this a couple of days ago.

Guy asked me to send a few bitcoins to an address.  I did.   Contacts me that they are not in the wallet and can't spend them, but was able to confirm they are in the address he specified and so all is good.
His mycelium account doesn't show it and the address he had me pay doesn't show either.   This is what was figured out....

He installed mycelium.  Then, made a backup.   Decided to test by uninstalling and reinstalling.   seed worked.  He then cleared the cash files and created a new wallet.   I paid him.
He wanted the wallet on a new tablet and installed mycelium on it and imported the seed.  No coins.   He then went to the first device and uninstalled, reinstalled again using the backup seed. 

Now, both the phone and the tablet have the seed which he made a backup of, but the coins were in the new wallet he had made in order to test out.  Not realizing it wasn't part of the original and backup he made.

$700 gone.

No matter how simple you make something, people will screw it up.

Thank you for a great wallet !  Tongue

1090  Bitcoin / Mycelium / Re: Mycelium Bitcoin Wallet on: March 12, 2015, 01:53:24 PM
Quick question:
When I scan a private key with mycelium, how does the app treats that key ?   It obviously keeps the key (temporarily or not) waiting for me to act, but what happens to that 'data' after I scanned the key ?

It treats the key seperate from your Master Seed generated keys.
This means, you need to do an additional backup since that pkey is not part of the Master Seed word list.

This new key is in cache files stored on your device.  So, if you do something like delete the associated files on your device, it will lose everything.  So, to put them back in, you need to start up Mycelium and either start a new wallet or restore the master seed word list, AND then restore the scanned private key.

The above assumes you mean importing of the private key as a wallet address for normal use.  You could have also meant something like... What happens to a pkey used as a spendable cold storage, but that isn't considered importing, but rather simply using it.

Everything stated above is a basic response to your question; however, if you want a technical response, I can't answer.  (As in where in memory, what file, etc)

The site is showing the video as iframe and the problem is with the video hosting site. OP even asked for a fresh video. So, rather than complaining, provide a fresh link, if u have one.

It's not my responsibility to provide everyone a copy of the movie.  I paid for it (in support of bitcoin itself).

My post wasn't complaining about the movie.  It's to notify people that without spyware protection, they will get infected along with all the popups you can't close.
Do you really think a thread with spyware should exist just because I don't give you the movie for free?   Gesh.
1094  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin - Full Movie | Download | Watch Online for Free on: March 05, 2015, 03:13:27 PM

It was amazing movie .
you can watch it here
www.coinlearn.org/movie.php

@Armis what does it mean shown at 35k feet ? Don't tell me it means on a plane too ?

Are you fricken kidding me?

That website is so full of spyware and popups, it's amazing this thread hasn't been marked as a scam yet.

As the name implies it's for local trading, i.e. meet up. PayPal and Bitcoin have never mixed. Multisig will not fix the PayPal problem.

Agreed.

Paypal is BAD for bitcoin.  A scammer or even a disgruntled buyer can claim it was fake even many months later.

Note:  Paypal requires that you provide an online tracking number.   Since you didn't ship the coins, it is not trackable.   Don't be dumb enough to think the blockchain is considered online tracking as no transaction proves YOU sent the bitcoin or that the other party is the receiver.
1098  Other / Meta / Re: Mycelium getting its own sub-forum any time soon? on: February 27, 2015, 03:33:50 PM

I don't think Mycelium has enough users when compared to Blockchain.info. IMHO:


Isn't that like saying the World only needs one search Engine since most people use Google?
Or, ummm, we only need Internet explorer since it was the first and most people use it?

As for me, I am happy that Firefox and Chrome came out even though IE was first.
As for me, I am very happy that Comcast cable came out.  With your logic, I would still be stuck on AOL and dialup.

Yes, blockchain.info is nice, but it's still a webwallet.  MyCelium is iOS and Android.  I don't have to worry about my computer being hacked with a keylogger to use Mycelium.
1099  Bitcoin / Mycelium / Re: MyCelium -Keys issue with regards to BIP39/44 and differences of iOS and Android on: February 26, 2015, 01:58:49 AM
For a BIP-44 wallet, the xpub at m/44'/0'/0' makes a lot more sense than at m/44'/0'/0'/0.  The former can be used to find out the total amount of funds in Account 0, and therefore is usable as a “watch-only” key to monitor an HD account without risking the private keys.  And it can still generate “incoming” addresses in the external chain at 0/1, 0/2, 0/3 etc. relative to the xpub.

m/44'/0'/0'/0 does technically offer a bit more privacy by hiding the internal (change) chain.  Still, whoever has it can see all external incoming transactions into the account and track them on the blockchain.  That's really not that much more private than m/44'/0'/0'.  I suppose xpubs are not really meant to be made public; it's the addresses on the external chain that are.  And they are the same regardless of the xpub they are derived from (as long as correct derivation sub-paths are used).
What I didn't/don't understand is if 4 fields are the protocol (m/44'/0'/0'/0), then why does (m/44'/0'/0') even work.  What is being used as a default in which position?  Sorry, I just need to read more.

Sites:
The site you mentioned (which you call ‘sites’ in plural, even though they are identical) looks to me more like an engineering toolkit than a consumer product. 
I mentioned any BIP39 sites, but listed two (although a copy).  If you use google, you will find many sites and github tools to match the results.  Since it is a protocol, it wouldn't matter which I pick.  To save space, I decided not to make this a thread about a list of sites or tools.  This thread is about keys, not about sites which convert wordlists.  Basically, the SITE matches the keys that the iOS version outputs and the Android version doesn't.   I CAN'T match a wordlist to the keys that the Android version outputs.   So, any person trying to figure out if there wordlist backup is correct or not simply can't match keys output on the Android.

Also,
Oh, and your spelling of Mycelium is wrong in most instances.  ‘Celium’ is not a word.
My wife does that.   She will take an entire conversation and, just to make a point, will try to nitpick anything.  I don't think spelling, or rather the case of a letter, changes the topic of a thread.  If I were to nitpick back, I would say that your determination of 'wrong in most instances' is wrong in that I used the capital letter C only 3 times out of the 11 times I had typed it in.

Thanks for your input.
1100  Bitcoin / Mycelium / Re: MyCelium -Keys issue with regards to BIP39/44 and differences of iOS and Android on: February 24, 2015, 05:38:21 PM
First, thanks for the response; however, I think you missed it.

BIP39/44 site matches the iOS version.
Can duplicate results, receiving addresses, etc - Everything.  This is great.   Hell, it even has a button for MyCelium wallet which is m/44'/0'/0'/0
- Even the receiving addresses are correct and the displayed master keys shown.
And, it also matches the default output of pycoin using ku.  All is wonderful.

Why would you change the iOS version if everything matches everything as above?

It's the Android version that seems to be off.  Android version doesn't match the site for master seeds, and you specifically have to change it from the defaults to m/44'/0'/0' in order to get the same receiving addresses even if the master public keys shown are not displayed.

Why not change the Android version to match all other sites and pycoin?


Note:  You did say that Android uses m/44'/0'/0 for the 'first' account however taking out '/0 isn't a standard for BIP44.
And, the masterkey is different than any site I have checked.   Meaning, if I type in the neumonic on the sites, they all show different masterkeys than displayed on Android version.

To me, it appears the android version is the nonstandard.

Maybe I am missing something?  More research, but I like that the iOS version matches the BIP39/44 sites which means there is an online resource which, by default, will show me the future receiving addresses of a wallet and the keys match on the site to the wallet app.  (Android matches if you fool around with the defaults even if the keys on export don't match).

PS.  I wish the iOS version would be updated as there are many bugs.  I am guessing you are already aware of them, so I wont go into that here.
