l recently purchased a few domain names from Namecheap and the process was wonderfully smooth. In fact, it was probably faster to pay via Bitcoin than credit card, since I sent high-priority coins.

The price of everything fluctuates. Even the dollar.

If you're in it to use bitcoins, rather than to speculate on them, just dollar-cost-average to purchase them.

What does 1% edge 3900 BTC mean? What's the difference between that line and just the 1% edge line. Is that the 4k Ceeste mishap?

In other words, we can expect to follow the 1% edge 3900 BTC line from here on out?

That's a minus sign: 1% minus 3900.  We seem to be sticking to that line, and we are expected to do so.

It keeps coming up on the site chat.  Most people think that we should get back to the red 1% line, but I disagree.  Once you're off the expected line by X BTC, you expect to stay off it by X BTC.  In our case X=3900 BTC.

That's not to say we won't have a whale come and lose 3900 BTC more than expected to us tonight and put us back on the red line.  But it's just as likely he'll win 3900 BTC more than expected and take us even further below the red line.

If anyone can give a convincing argument as to why that's true I'd appreciate it, because I'm never able to convince the chatters that it's the case.  "But the law of law numbers says we'll get back to 1%".  "Yes, we expect to get back arbitrarily close to 1%, but we also expect to stay 3900 BTC below it.  (X-3900)/X tends to 1 as X tends to infinity".  And on it goes...

What kind of argument dealing with math can convince a gambler an investor?

The basic fallacy here is... the gambler's fallacy. Past results have no effect on the future. Investors expect to get 1% of all future bets. Getting back to the red line would require more than 1% of future bets, and that's not more likely just because of past losses.

I have a Samsung Galaxy tablet. I have some other things but not sure what would be sufficient.Any suggestions for collateral? I have a rare OJ simpson card that I'd hate to lose, would that work?
Pics of these with your name on something. Are you willing to send to the loaner to hold until the loan is repaid?

Yes, and I2P has Bote, etc. Problems:

They are much heavier software with slower startup times and higher network load
No one-click setup
Java
Not specifically marketed as secure email

Bote?

Leaving implementation details aside, the 10+ years of research solving an extremely similar problem to Bitmessage is worth a cursory glance. Could their protocols not influence the design of BM?
Certainly, but I think their lack of adoption is part of the problem Bitmessage tries to solve. It's already possible to reproduce Bitmessage's functionality by sending GPG encrypted anonymous emails over Tor, but almost nobody does.

Joey, would you like a tutorial on how to un-joey your posts? Only 5 BTC.

It should cost a lot more. Tongue
He'd have to take out a loan to cover the tutorial costs either way :/

I just downloaded the new version @ the library. All set! Please work on the settings being server now that you have something to host it on. It is annoying to change it every time I use a different computer.
Done, look at the settings page it's pretty straight-forward I think.
Thank you because I would never have done it without some reminders. And it's a hassle to change all the settings again each time I delete/reinstall BT++ on my dev PCs...
0.2.0, finally...

Going to fix the unicode bug now
Done. The symbol is inside the script itself, I don't get why sometimes it becomes this mess... I'll try to check that each time to find out what happens.

Maybe because the forum uses Latin-1?

Interesting.  He used the same bitcoin address in the threat he sent me too.  When one of us pays up, how is he going to know who to protect?  Wink
What a horrible extortion attempt. At least start with a show of power and make it interesting for the rest of us.

For example, is there a reason why BM could not be implemented as a reliable-and-anonymous message channel by just building on top of a DHT such as freenet or similar? This would scale far better and we would not need to care about ACKs.
Freenet already has a mail system that does everything Bitmessage does, with stronger privacy protections.

This game is great!

Why bother with mining if you can invest into gambling and make profit instantly?


Invest
Instant profit

Pick one.
239  Economy / Lending / Re: iNVeSTMeNT oPPoRTuNiTY - 6 btc business loan for 6 months at 2.5% on: September 05, 2013, 01:27:27 AM
Beware of double-dipping: this loan is for 6 months, so it will take 6 months to label him a scammer. During that time, he may take other loans or money in order to maximize the amount he can run off with.

Or he may pay it back. See you in 6 months.
