Goddammit, it's still May over here
Where do you live? With DST in most of the Northern Hemisphere, I assume west of Newfoundland, or South America.
I live on the NE coast of the US

Are you impressed by the "few grand"?

I apologize for the bump, but this has been done Cool
There's also a good (albeit too detailed for the average consumer) explanation of how it works in the video.

I certainly wouldn't flee from the community. I'd sell half of my BTC to the insane buyer, and use .0000001 BTC like I use 1 BTC today. Plus, it's only a simple change in the code to add more decimal places.

  • I sent some BTC to my email address
  • I clicked on the link in the email
  • I attempted to send coins to my phone
  • Blank page. Checked the source, no data was sent.
So I sent the coins to my GLBSE deposit address instead. From the main page (not from the email link) I sent coins to my phone and it worked fine.

If you had 1 BTC already, you would have enough to purchase some kind of pirate pass-through bond... though at .07 BTC/week, you might not be able to come up with .88 extra to pay the person back with

Are the 0.2 still available?
Edit: When I tried to send to my cell phone, I got an entirely blank page at https://coinapult.com/payload/sendrequest . The funds are still available at the URL...
Edit2: apparently you can't send BTC after receiving it by email. However, it worked from the home page.
Idea: allow the use of Firstbits addresses

Screen-size crash... what the hell... oh. I understand. This is Windows. When the application tries to write to a nonexistent location on the screen, it probably gets or passes a bad pointer then crashes, or the dll function which was called has poor error handling and crashes. Not so weird after all

This though is markedly different from your original post, where you had asked if you could change your mind about a transaction, which presumably would be several minutes, or seconds at best, after already releasing the original transaction to the network.  Since your efforts to reverse the original transaction would be way too late, the answer for all intents and purposes is no.
Thank you.

Please DO MAKE BACKUPS first of your wallet.dat.  Additionally, DO PLAN ON RESTORING from backups after your testing is completed (i.e., don't use new keys from the key pool that aren't in the backup).

Double spends like that don't happen unless you are doing something that causes it to happen (as you have described in your plans) and as a result, the client doesn't accommodate the invalid double spend and will leave it at 0/unconfirmed with no way to clear the problem.
When I run the double-spend test, it will be from an account which has only the coins being sent, and to two empty addresses (I might not even generate them... just pick a random string, as I'll be working with such small numbers as to be useless after two transaction fees). I feel reasonably secure.

My only question now is, does having a higher tx fee increase relay speed or only confirmation speed? I suspect the latter, as there's no incentive to a node to relay a high-paying transaction.

Nope... blockchain.info allows sending from multiple addresses in one transaction.

Nope...is in response to what?

most someone can do is rip you off for the value of one bill
You can rip someone off at every purchase... hell if I would ever accept these.

Back to the OP, I think they are a worthless idea with very little real world application. Selling them for PayPal is an open invitation to be ripped off, setting up a system where you can be ripped off so easily will make people want to reverse these paper bitcoins, having reversible paper bitcoins floating around does nothing to enhance the value of any other bitcoin, and leaves a bad taste with anyone who touches them.

So it's only feasible if I alert my uncle Joe ahead of time, "If I text you anything from X cell number, immediately send all of my coins to Y address", and my Uncle Joe operates DeepBit?

OK, thanks for the answer. I'm gonna try this crapshoot now... two simultaneous spends from two different locations to two different addresses, both of which I own, with the same coins... it might even turn out to be a nice way to generate almost-truly-random bits very slowly Wink

Nope... blockchain.info allows sending from multiple addresses in one transaction.
Even if that weren't true, you're basically saying that these paper bills will only be involved in small real-world transactions, rendering them less convenient than paper one-dollar bills...

1. Send bitcoins to a new address
2. Print the private key
3. Hard-format your HDD and overwrite your RAM
4. Check to see if someone was looking over your shoulder
5. Bury it like a pirate

But spending it is a bad idea. I summed up several ways this could go wrong in a previous post. Even the most secure way (hashing the private key to make sure that it points to the address claimed, then checking the balance of that address) is vulnerable to the customer handing you the bill, waiting for you to check it, then pressing 'Send' on their Android...
