2  Economy / Exchanges / Re: LocalBitcoins is no longer available in Germany ? on: December 10, 2014, 02:12:56 AM

Now I don't know german or the german sub-forum but I wouldn't be surprised if there were more than a few germans scammed and filling complaints with "localbitcoins" named out of frustration.  



100% correct; there was massive scamming going on (buying with stolen bank accts, man in the middle etc.) and there are enough complaints inside and outside their forum.

In essence, to receive a bank transfer within the specified time limit, sellers had to list the acct info in the ad - which is an excellent target for criminals, who can hack accounts and when successful, buy coins from such an ad.

Probably, German authorities were fed up with all that and have now pulled the plug.

I have recommended to LBC to do some sort of bank account verification like bitcoin.de or Paypal does, to ensure the buyer controls the account, or introduce escrow. Those two options would stop most scammers without requiring KYC (and after all, people paying with bank transfers are not anonymous at all).

LBC did give a fat rats ass and now the shit has hit the fan.

You can forget about putting the blame on bitcoin or localbitcoins for this one.

Hacked bank accounts and hacked credit cards is something entirely the fault of the police and the government, and they love producing shitty banking services and shitty credit cards that can be cloned so as to scare the peasants into socialising losses to hackers and as an excuse to have everyone earmarked for tax reasons, not even remotely for security reasons, that's why they keep trying to force reversibility of transactions, so that the taxman can look up an ebay seller's history nothing else, hacked accounts have been occuring for ages and what have the bankers done, nothing just keep producing the shitty cloneable cards and shitty atms etc etc. This is an attack on crypto make no mistake, but not all countries allow police to hide as secret police as they approach sellers.
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Patrick Murck of The Bitcoin Foundation - attacked by a lunatic. on: November 17, 2014, 09:43:58 PM
Who is "we"?  Has Patrick asked for an apology and retraction?
The crime is against community.  The community is due an apology. 

When a man beats his wife, it is a crime against society.  Even if she forgives him and does not prosecute her civil claim, society still goes for a criminal conviction. 

That fat asshole didn't just screw Mr. Murck, he screws everyone.  Everyone who doesn't demand an apology accepts such behavior and further harms the community.  He should be held to account.  That is all.
Your absurdly-abstract collectivist notions are what make ideas like genocide possible.



I haven't read the rest of the thread and will only read this. And it's too pretentious because if you dispute what that guy just said, you're enabling scotsmen and their sheep shagging hobbies. I'm sure there's a lot of texan sheep shaggers here though, there usually is whenever something is about accumulating coins of some sort. It isn't ok to just go shagging goats and sheep and cows like that, and hurling goat turd infested dicks in prison is not genocide, if anything it's genocide of the half-breed goat-human species alex jones or rand paul belong to.

This guy is a scammer, he planned it all in advance and ran off with the btc. He also never used return address and so probably never did registered mailing either. Sad predator takes advantage of vulnerabilities and uncertainties, and will probably keep nonchalantly logging in this forum.

Yeah this thread is overrun with trolls. Bernard75 is a trustworthy member of the community. Period.
6  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: Implication of FinCEN stance on bitcoin exchanges on: October 29, 2014, 03:31:56 PM
I think there is the possibility that this could be the end of the road for cryptocurrencies in the USA, from a practical standpoint.

Why?  It was already the case that Bitcoin exchanges had to implement Know Your Customer (KYC) for USA.. doesn't sound to me like this is saying anything new in that regard.

These new rulings will affect many merchants also.

I suspect it will take a few days before the realizations sinks in as to what has happened.

Merchants are exempt according to Lawsky. A merchant isn't the same as a payment processor. Why can't the merchants handle the bitcoin and immediately send them to coinbase or bitpay for them to instantly convert it?

There is a bounty to make tools to and setup a spin off alt.

I thought there was an entire thread dedicated to the bounty but can't find it. did someone pick the job up?
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [RFC] Šthereum: a turing-complete coin distributed as per bitcoin's blockchain on: September 11, 2014, 12:01:02 PM
No I've not invested in Ether at all actually. I don't like the current business model but I might invest at a later stage depending.

I have looked at airdrops before and it's pretty unanimous so far that it just crushes the price and doesn't create user adoption. So I thought the Ethereum airdrop planned here was fine, just futile. Considering the proportion of miners involved in Bitcoin and the number of POW fanboys, trying to bootstrap an ethereum clone based on DPOS onto Bitcoin seemed even more implausible. I think it would just be free advertising for the real Ethereum. Just my opinion, you're entitled to yours.

I think this is a solid post and makes sense to me. I have always looked at Aethereum as a potential threat to Ethereum, but you have now convinced me I was wrong all along about it.

You are certainly correct that all "air drop" coins have been a huge failure thus far. There is no incentive to hold onto the coins and as soon as the are "air dropped" mass dumping ensues.

Ethereum will not suffer from that problem, as all Ethereum owners will have invested something of value to get their portion of Ether. This will provide a deterrent from all Ethereum owners dumping on the market for anything less than what they invested in it, which will uphold the value 1000x better than getting Aethereum for free will.

Just look at how hard all the air drop coins have failed, and how the free distribution Nxt clones have failed. It doesn't take much logical reasoning to deduce that that is what will happen to Aethereum too.


The real air drops are the altcoins themselves when you think about it. The whole idea of bitcoin is that can be modified improved or changed. If aethereum dropped in price at an airdrop it would also drag the price of ethereum because everyone would get to see how the price deals with large trade volumes, but in ethereum you'd have a terrible distribution.

Where's that thread where Peter R is announcing a bounty for setting up aethereum?

Hey I didn't  buy anything from him, and I haven't been scammed, but it looks like his email is acting up claiming he doesn't offer escrow anymore because he only uses bitcointalk escrow whatever that is lol.

Proceed with caution? Lol, thats an understatement. He's currently posting messages in another thread talking about trades he's successfully doing, at least he has a sense of humor.
11  Economy / Goods / Re: [SELL] Anonymous Visa cards with IBAN number EUR | USD | GBP - 15$ on: September 10, 2014, 02:24:38 PM
I have made a payment to this guy on the 25th on an order that was arranged on the 15th. The blockchain shows that the money was moved away from the payment address on the 28th.
But the guy has not been online here since the 19th and not confirmed my payment or confirmed the order was sent.

I will update this post if the cards does indeed arrive in good order, but as a tip to the seller please update your customers in PM.
 


I can't access my account! The admin isn't replying to my message. Maybe you will be able to help me (send me PM with BTC address I sent you, and I will sign it for admin).

You got access to your account back? ''You're'' posting in another thread now.
12  Economy / Goods / Re: [SELL] Anonymous Visa cards with IBAN number EUR | USD | GBP - 15$ on: September 10, 2014, 02:23:30 PM
Fair enouth. My mission is not to give out bad rep.
I have sent you a PM with the address. Please sign a message from that address (as soon as i figure out the bitcoin message signing stuff....) and i will verify.

Proper feedback and good credit will be given here when good credit is due (everything is sorted in good order). Thanks.



You got what you wanted?
13  Economy / Goods / Re: Anonymous reloadable prepaid plastic VISA ATM cards with own IBAN on: August 23, 2014, 07:15:16 AM
The same situation.

1 old card blocked, got money only from xmlgold - they send money ONLY from POLAND banks.

2 new cards - blocked: received money from my own Bank account and from my friend account. nothing more... Also blocked.

Card's status: active. They can receive money, but you can not spend it, so they freeze there.
If bank would like to help me, I am going to go to Poland in October-November. I think nothing happen with money till then, but may be there it would be a problem to unfreeze 3 cards... I do not know what to do now.
I contacted with the bank, they told me the same thing: come to branch in Poland.

So I think these cards now all dead: not anonymous any more

Why don't you ask your friend to issue a chargeback? You pretty much have to comply with them with SEPA.
14  Bitcoin / Legal / Did bitlicense just hand all closed-loop gift card business to banks? on: July 23, 2014, 03:23:53 PM
Open-loop gift cards are ones that can be redeemed in different establishments, but closed-loop ones are ones that only work in the place where it was issued, like itunes, newegg or amazon.

http://www.dfs.ny.gov/about/press2014/pr1407171-vc.pdf

(m) Virtual Currency means any type of digital unit that is used as a medium of exchange or a form of digitally stored value or that is incorporated into payment system technology. Virtual Currency shall be broadly construed to include digital units of exchange that (i) have a centralized repository or administrator; (ii) are decentralized and have no centralized repository or administrator; or (iii) may be created or obtained by computing or manufacturing effort.

I don't get it, on the one hand closed-loop gcs can't be redeemed for cash, but they could be sold on the sly by individuals without anyone noticing. Likewise, you can mess around with gaming currencies even though officially you can't redeem them for cash. Is Lawsky saying anything that gives an individual the freedom to send it to someone that isn't being tracked by the N$A, or is he saying it only includes companies that officially don't redeem your tokens for cash? I'd imagine that all specific companies would give up on the issuing of gift cards and ''partner'' with banks down the line. What do you think?
15  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: Purpose of Bitlicense Regulations on: July 23, 2014, 03:13:11 PM
The purpose is to make sure banks are the only ones that can handle bitcoin, and the other purpose is to keep the state tax revenue enough to pay Lawsky wages.
16  Bitcoin / Press / Re: [2014-07-18] N.Y. Proposes Licensing Plan for Bitcoin Businesses on: July 23, 2014, 01:37:56 AM
It will be interesting to see if Amazon and the likes get caught up in this legislation because their gift tokens are essentially a virtual currency.

Airline miles etc. are quasi virtual currencies as well. The upshot may turn out to be that they can no longer be transferred to avoid this kind of regulation.       

So Lawsky also banned gift cards that aren't under his watchful eye and expensive regs, what a fucking douchenozzle. Talk about making a hayday for the N$A...
17  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: You think decentralized escrow services will beat Lawsky's bullshit? on: July 22, 2014, 11:53:32 PM
Really guys, come on, can't this shit turd for brains Lawsky guy be argued against or is he just gonna start IDing everyone for the NSA, and smelling all the dogecoin poop in reddit changetip to report it to the IRS and let credit card ID theft have a new sunrise? How does one lobby in the US? Maybe we can all host the escrow service somehow like torrents... I'm not seeing much complaints apart from helpless reddit threads and a few blogs here and there.
18  Bitcoin / Legal / You think decentralized escrow services will beat Lawsky's bullshit? on: July 22, 2014, 11:28:33 PM
Apparently all escrow services are now forced to have all your ID data-- because ID theft and nanny state. Some in the cryptocurrency space are developing decentralized exchanges like openbazaar, but I keep hearing that the escrow service is centralized and so vulnerable to Lawsky's goons. What do you think?
19  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: Is Lawsky trying to get all the bitcoins to go to ETFs? on: July 19, 2014, 09:45:53 PM
Bitcoins as a store of value now need bitlicenses is this how lawmaking and lobbying works in the US? Really???

http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/2b5kex/immigrants_sending_money_home_investors_using/
You only need a bitlicense if you are in the business of exchanging bitcoin for cash or for cash for bitcoin, if you are a business that accepts bitcoin this does not apply to you

what about in the ''business'' of storing value for yourself, why isn't there an exemption like there is for gold?
20  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: Is Lawsky trying to get all the bitcoins to go to ETFs? on: July 19, 2014, 08:56:49 PM
No one has anything to say?

Wow, I really didn't know lawmakers could do things as drastic as this, not even an exemption like you have for holding gold where I believe you're not all forced to have it in an ETF or have it given to you by a customer in exchange for a service or good.
