Damn.

NO ONE seems to have been successful in making a USD withdrawal from Magic The Gathering Online eXchange.

Not very reassuring.

I mean, it were just a huge backlog or incompetent management, then at least ONE person on this forum should have been successful.

NO ONE huh?

I received a wire from mtgox for a large amount.  Took about 1.5 months, and a couple of support requests, but it finally came in.  They're fixing it, and within the next month or less, it should be back to normal. 

I don't think people realize how much volume gox does...  ANY exchange with similar volume will/have run into these issues.

-EP

Gox processes a tiny amount of fiat volume compared to other companies.  



And way more than any Bitcoin company.  Banks don't like regulatory uncertainty, and Bitcoin takes the cake there.

I am having problems logging into Mt. Gox.

503 Service Temporarily Unavailable

Is anyone else getting this?

I get that occasionally on login.  f5 usually does the trick.

You can copy your wallet.dat and paste it in all other PCs.

As soon as you use the 100 keys in your keypool, your wallets will diverge if you do this.

1986  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [XPM] [ANN] Primecoin High Performance on: July 18, 2013, 06:42:05 PM
How many address before the wallet diverge?

If it is the same as bitcoin, the default keypool size is 100 keys.
1987  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [XPM] [ANN] Primecoin High Performance on: July 18, 2013, 06:41:05 PM
WOW, already getting flooded with PMs.

Take off your tinfoil hats people. I'm NOT GPU mining. I'm simply running a lot of high power private servers.
then maybe stop broadcasting it just to brag
I don't mind answering questions/getting flames/etc, but apparently everyone thinks I'm beating out people because of a GPU miner.
Would have been beneficial to you and the board if you were just more explicit.  So you have 1 vpn? 2? and on each of these what type of servers? how many? how many cores in each?  

Edit:  Also you imply VPS's are no longer profitable, when it appears you could simply duplicate what you're doing w/ vps so I'm not clear how its not equally profitable, unless you're using someone else's server in a datacenter whose resources are paid by someone else.
Amazon/DO is no longer profitable. Private companies/datacenters is something different. I am paying for the services.

May I ask how to use a lot computers calculation at one wallet? Any mining client can be use? I don't understand how can you have 600K PPS in one wallet? Please share some idea to us. Thanks.

By putting the same wallet.dat on each of the clients.  Then you can just watch the transaction history from one client.

Right up until your keypool runs out and your wallets diverge.
My process is nicely automated and swaps wallets. No worries about that here.

I'm not worried about you.  Just about people who might not know that it's not as simple as you made it sound.

Does anyone have a clone of the repo?  Github has taken it down for excessive use of resources.

Edit: sf link, duh

Would it be better if I stopped? Last time I took a break we plunged to 65. Cheesy

Don't stop magical bear.  Hold up the price with your bear might.
1993  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [1400GH/s] p2pool: Decentralized, DoS-resistant, Hop-Proof pool on: July 18, 2013, 08:30:32 AM
I believe I saw it somewhere - might be problem with ulimit -n,but I think I increased it to 2048 and it did not help.
Restarting p2pool helps.
Any ideas how to debug the problem or what to do ?
Shall I upgrade fedora (python-twisted-core-12.2.0-2.fc19.x86_64) ?
Thanks a lot for your time !

"fc19" is Fedora Core 19, that's really new, I'm unsure why they don't have a higher limit by default.  On a modern Linux system, with a lot going on, you should give yourself as many open file descriptors as you can.

I don't use Fedora, but the file should still be in the same place (I hope).  Edit the /etc/security/limits.conf file, put this at the bottom, don't forget the stars in the far left column:

Code:
* soft nofile 65536
* hard nofile 65536

Get rid of any other lines in the file that have "nofile" in them.  Unfortunately, it seems the maximum is 65536, the system simply won't let you set a higher limit (even though I wanted to).

Then, log out and log back in.  You should have a much higher limit now, verify with "ulimit -n" as you said.

Also, in your text you pasted, it says (in the big loud message) your Bitcoin daemon isn't running.  Something's seriously wrong on your system.  You should always have 3 programs running: bitcoind (or Bitcoin-Qt), p2pool, and bfgminer (or whatever miner you use).

My ulimit is 1024.... am I supposed to be having problems?

If you guys want your bitcoin converted to cash in your US bank accounts you should read this thread:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=237164.0

Why not just make a bitcoin withdrawal, then load the bitcoin for sale at Bitcoin-Brokers for free, who will then broker the sale of your bitcoins...get you higher rates than MtGox rates, and pay you cash immediately into your US bank account?

No wire transfer fees, no waiting, get paid more than MtGox.

Are you fully licensed to transmit money in all 50 states?  If you are not, you are putting your funds and your customer's funds at risk of seizure.
Everybody loves these phrases recently, eh?  @notme, perhaps you should do some more reading re: FinCen before you try to toss BitcoinBrokers under the proverbial bus? Just my 2c, cheers

I have read the guidance and surrounding regulations.  If I am wrong, please tell me where.  Because from my reading, if you but or sell bitcoins for another person (AKA acting as a broker), you need to be registered as a MSB and a money transmitter.  Seriously, I would love to know I am wrong so I can resume some of the activities I feel I can no longer do.
1996  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer - MtGoxUSD wall movement tracker - Hardcore on: July 18, 2013, 06:20:16 AM
Yeah, I find the bot theory really hard to believe....although I'd admit 1600 BTC is not a "sky is falling" moment.  Doesn't mean its not coming though.

I do to, and I run a bot.
1997  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer - MtGoxUSD wall movement tracker - Hardcore on: July 18, 2013, 06:12:04 AM
Wow... I would NOT trust a bot with 1000+ BTC.

Especially if it relies on MtGox connection.

Even if someone would, I doubt they would trust it to sell that much at once without human input.
1998  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [XPM] [ANN] Primecoin Release - First Scientific Computing Cryptocurrency on: July 18, 2013, 05:22:11 AM
So how do we estimate mining proceeds from our primes/second?
1999  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer - MtGoxUSD wall movement tracker - Hardcore on: July 18, 2013, 03:50:53 AM
Anyone know if this wave count adds up?


I'm no EW expert, but that doesn't look right to me.  I think the entire trend is supposed to be in the same direction as the initial impulse, but I could be wrong.
2000  Economy / Speculation / Re: 2 Scenarios resulting from SD: Bearish vs. Turbo Bearish with Lasers on Top on: July 18, 2013, 03:29:17 AM
Ok, so this is only just speculative and may never become reality (we'll see in a few hours;)

TLDR at bottom

2 Market mechanics at play:

1. Share holders want to sell their free Bitcoins from the pay out (or fractions thereof) at the best price possible

2. Everyone else trying to make a quick profit sells in anticipation of it, in order to re-buy at the bottom.

Phase ONE: During the hours leading up to the release of payouts (about 12pm on 2013-07-18 UTC) every speculator tries to dump their BTCs before the rest does. Europe wakes up first around 9 am UTC, then around 1pm UTC the US east coast wakes up with another slush of BTCs released on the markets.
The final price before first funds are released will be of great importance for what happens next: if the price is still pretty high, many SD payees will be tempted to sell their fresh BTCs at good rates. If price has come down pretty low, like 70 USD many will probably hold off, waiting for better rates. If on the other hand price has already been driven down below 50 USD, which I consider the edge to mass panic sells, the payees will most likely feel pressed hard to get rid of their BTCs quick, as long as it still "is worth something". Of course this sell off may not last long and will bounce back eventually but all of you, who have witnessed a panic sell before know that ppl tend to not act rationally under those circumstances.

Phase TWO: Funds are released, payees act according to current price

Im not sure about the amounts of BTCs to be sold immediately after funds release as they greatly depend on the situation at hand.

How likely are those scenarios in your opinions?

TLDR: If we stay above 50 before funds are released, we will be fine Wink

Or..... Shareholders put their Bitcoin into ASICMiner and altcoins and wait until the bear trap plays out.
