721  Economy / Speculation / Re: Japan is new China? on: November 01, 2014, 06:17:24 PM
Japan is already the new china in terms of bitcoin adoption. I was in Japan 2 months back , and almost everyone knows about bitcoins. However, there hasn't been a mass adoption for the shops to accept it yet. But bitcoin craze is already there.

Oh, really? Who did you talk to? What is their background? How many coins did each person you talked to hold? How much JPY do they plan to invest in it? Sure they "know" about it or have heard of it - MtGox and Teramoto-san took care of that.

I really would like to see some hard proof of the claims stated in this thread. I will give you some against in the meanwhile:

BtcBox is currently the biggest exchange of the ones that publish their numbers. They have a daily volume of 200 coins. Bitstamp does 12'000 (the whole Chinese 0 fee model makes for an obvious bot show).

There was an bitcoin ATM in a restaurant in Shibuya. It has been removed. Talking to some business owners that accept BTC, sales in BTC are not exactly stellar.

A quick look at coinmap.org shows the number of places that accept BTC is indeed growing, but not exactly at a spectacular pace. I think we had 35 in spring and we're at 43 now. But then the places that accept BTC didn't neither grow exponentially in China during the "China" bubble.

The majority of "for" arguments brought forward in this thread have been in place last year already. So why did it not happen last year already? Why would it happen this year?

I think they are very open about it. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=833704.0

What does that offering have to do with Prisma miners?

he must be implying that prismas are mining in their DCs instead of being shipped.


I have no bone in either, but if you think about it.... Could be a possibility?

I think you are looking for an arbitration service. I have not used them, but for example https://www.bitrated.com/ has plenty arbitrators listed, might be there's one with IP experience. I'm sure there are other sites / arbitrators.

I'm surprised no-one had cited the single biggest, in your face, elephant in the room reason that Bitcoin might take off in Japan.
[...]


By that token, Japan's debt is through the roof for several years already. Have they fled to gold? Did they stockpile food and supplies in major amounts per household? No.

So, I don't think this will change anything. Look at Cyprus, Argentina, Greece - you name them. How high is bitcoin adoption there? Is it "huge"?


The difference is that the Chinese distrust their government and are looking to get money out of China. They also have a huge network of people outside China, that can receive that money. Neither is true for Japan.
Not quite. The difference is that China has exchange controls. Converting yuan to dollars or euros is hard. That's what drove the Bitcoin bubble in China - it was a way to convert yuan to Bitcoins to dollars.

Japan has no exchange controls. Any major bank will convert yen to dollars or euros.  Today's rate is 112.30 yen/dollar.

Thank you for making my point. Again.

Many thanks for your help Smiley

Not sure what to do, I have just waisted over 20 hours of my life which should have been spent a bit more wisely Smiley

Anyone interested to buy Habanero board ??

No worries.

I wouldn't call it a complete waste. You learned a bit about how to poke around in Linux systems, for example.

732  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: The Habanero - 650GH/s - OOS on: October 31, 2014, 06:08:53 PM

One reason I can think of is that the RPi handles the hf-tool somewhat differently as a full-fledged Linux would, the RPi is a truncated computer after all. The error messages point to an USB error, so maybe the method I wrote about earlier to install pyusb were not correct, or they were correct for the RPi, but installed that way they won't work with the hf-tool...

I know from personal experience that it runs under Lubuntu 14.04, but that won't run on a RPi. I guess we have to wait for gateway or MrTeal to comment on that. Maybe building python from source would help, but I'm not sure if you feel like going there.

Another thing you could try in the meanwhile, is to run a Linux off a USB stick as a Live system (with persistence), if you still have the nerves for it Wink  A good tool to do that under Windows is http://www.linuxliveusb.com/, it will take you through the steps. The only thing you might have to change is to allow booting from USB on your computer.
733  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: The Habanero - 650GH/s - OOS on: October 31, 2014, 02:05:45 PM

My understanding is you want to mine on Windows and disable a chip on your board using the RPi/hftool. Correct?

If that is the case forget about cgminer on the RPi, you don't need it.

That out of the way, I take it by "ASIC 1" you mean die 1? In that case you would run something like
Code:
./hftool.py -w 0:930@875,1:0,2:930@875,3:930@875
to disable die number 1. The other values depend on what you were able to read out previously with
Code:
./hftool.py -r

But let's take it step by step. You were able to "change" into th hf-tool folder?
Can you run
Code:
./hftool.py -h
and then
Code:
./hftool.py -r
What is the output of those commands? (You can copy from the terminal by selecting the text with the mouse and hit Ctrl+Shift+C.
734  Economy / Speculation / Re: which exchange has the most liquid currently? on: October 31, 2014, 10:56:01 AM
Taking into account verification, deposits / withdrawals, security, volume, fees, and service,

Which exchange can I register an account to complete verification the most convenient, transfer btc to fiat or transfer fiat to btc the maximum efficiency, then withdralal the fastest.
[...]

Where are you located? If you are in the same area as the bank that an exchange uses, it will speed things up significantly.

Regarding liquidity, sorted by monthly volume (notice: China exchanges have 0.- fees, so that's mostly bot trading):

Coinbase

Lol, really? I heard of people waiting for a week for their coins. Doesn't sound that liquid to me.

Does Armory have a privacy feature when the client is launched, it ask for password b4 it sync any wallet?

I really want this on my watch-only client. But i wish to have privacy incase someone steal my computer they wont know if i have any bitcoin wallet/balance.


Currently no.

But really, you have no password on your boot (BIOS), no password on your drive encryption and no password on your login (OS)?

If somebody steals your computer now and your drive is not encrypted with a password/passphrase, all they need to do is pull out the HDD and connect it to another PC and find the appropriate file (as far as watch-only is concerned).

what would that file be? and how would they open it? I thought the watch-only import file is self destroyed after i import it.


The information has to be there. Otherwise how would Armory know your watch-only addresses, if it doesn't store them anywhere?

On Lubuntu:

Code:
find  / -name *wallet*

returns

Code:
/root/.armory/armory_XYZxyzXYZ_.watchonly.wallet

So, the information is certainly there. My guess is, if the attacker installs Armory on their PC and put your file in the right directory, they will be able to see your info.

You are mistaken. Many do, including myself. It's referred to as "horizontal spending". And no, no illegal stuff either.

Online gambling is not strictly forbidden.
Moreover, Bitcoin is not a legally currency which means gambling on Bitcoin is not illegal.

Can you please provide a link to a Japanese online gambling site, run by a Japanese company? Gambling, not sports betting.

I also think you might hit a bump with your interpretation of the law there. It's like saying buying drugs and get them to Japan is legal as long as you use bitcoin. As Teramoto-san found out, it's not: http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/japan-makes-first-arrest-over-alleged-drug-trafficking-using-bitcoin-1447857
