All bitcon users together make like 10000 payments a day, and i think at least half of these are transfers from mining pools to miners.

PS. bitcon is a mistype. wait what dr freud said about mistypes?

well, you received the card

you knew it was used for mining "since November 2010"

you knew the price is suspiciously cheap

you weighted your risks, you lost, nothing to whine about

unfortunately bitcoin is not designed for microtransactions, this would completely choke the bitcoin network

bitcoiner's attitude to ixcoin is similar to normal people's attitude to bitcoin )
286  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [ANNOUNCE] Ixcoin - a new Bitcoin fork on: August 13, 2011, 06:01:42 PM
but mining ixcoin is still more profitable than mining bitcoin - exchange price 0.0060 is higher than difficulty price = 16384/1890000*50/96 = 0.0045

At least this guy is better manager than Satoshi  Grin. I like the idea of allocating large initial chunk of coins to develop the product.
288  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [570 GH/s] Eligius pool: ~0Fee SMPPS, no reg, RollNtime, SQL, hop OK, 8decimals on: August 10, 2011, 10:02:46 PM
With SMPPS or any other "delayed return" system, if pool is lucky, owner has a surplus.

If pool is unlucky, the most reasonable strategy for any miner is to stop mining for that pool and go mine for another pool which is currently lucky. So, assuming all players are reasonable, pool will die. Pool owner will never have to refund any money.

So mathematical expectation (average over an infinite ensemble of all possible pools) of pool's surplus grows as ~sqrt(time).

Confirm terrible mtgox performance ... typical page load time is 20-30 seconds, up to 2-3 minutes at active times

Come on, that site can run off $10/month VPS, can't they afford $10?

The fact that there are 300 million Americans who use dollars for their day-to-day transactions creates a floor for the value of dollars.

soon we learn where that floor really is
291  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Mtgox please spend some of your massive income on new servers. "downornot" on: August 08, 2011, 01:13:54 AM
that downornot is bullshit. It just said me MICROSOFT IS DOWN,lol.

while bitcoins can drop over 25% in a week.

more like - in an hour
293  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Fuck the crash, lets just keep moving forward on: August 07, 2011, 10:03:10 AM
It's cash. You can't regulate cash. That's what makes bitcoin useful.

But if I pay cash in real world, I expect the seller to hand me goods right away - my left hand gives him cash and my right hand takes goods from him.
If he refuses to hand me the goods, I can beat him up at the spot. Technology of inflicting severe physical damage over the internet does not (yet) exist, therefore cash can't be used online.

Chrome is NOT open-source. Parts of it are open source. Obviously Google won't make public it's trojan capabilities.

2. What trojan capabilities exactly?

-  RLZ identifier, an encoded string sent together with all queries to Google[3] or once every 24 hours.
-  Accesses Google search on startup for users with Google as default search[4][5]
-  Has a unique ID ("clientID") for identifying the user in logs.
-  Google-hosted error pages when a server is not present
-  Automatic address bar search suggestions.
-  Bug tracking system, sending information about crashes or errors.

Bitcoin is still at proof of concept stage. You can't really expect much of they guys who are working for free without supervision. I mean, someone should come up with $100m to develop the proper infrastructure. Mr. Soros, there is an opportunity for you to rewrite financial history before you depart )

Android is NOT open-source. It's 100% proprietary and also has extensive spying built-in.

Bitcoiners are supposed to be privacy-conscious, so should stay away from anything from the evil empire.
297  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Is Bitcoin legally anonymous on: August 05, 2011, 02:02:06 AM
So every transaction can be traced to its origin. If I connect to the network through TOR and generate 50 BTC, and then buy some substance with it, it's very hard to trace that to me. But even if I bought coins at an exchange, and they, as required, have  verified my identity, I can still do the following:

- create another wallet (possibly online, like instawallet)
- transfer some BTC to that wallet
- buy substance with that second wallet
- erase that second wallet

now I can always say in court that I paid some other guy for his service (drug withdrawal consultancy?) and that's him who later bought the substance. While obvious lie, can that be considered a proof beyond reasonable doubt that I indeed bought the substance?
298  Economy / Economics / Re: Gold vs bitcoin on: July 27, 2011, 01:56:12 PM
Unlike bitcoin, gold could be easily forged
Will you tell the difference between 99.99 % and 99% gold?
That's one of the reasons gold was replaced by printed money in circulation

300  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What programming language to learn? on: July 10, 2011, 01:23:52 PM
language itself is only 1% of the story

you can learn PHP in one day but then you should also learn this

90% of programmer's job is "google->copy->paste", so choose the language with largest amount of available code)

right now it's Java and C#

C and C++ look terribly outdated, if you code with them why not go directly for VHDL its even more efficient)
