1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Everything Satoshi publicly wrote on the Bitcoin blockchain on: April 22, 2023, 04:14:17 PM

I just put everything Satoshi Nakamoto publicly wrote, in chronological order, onto the Bitcoin blockchain as two ordinal inscriptions.

Ordinal 1 - inscription 1300549 found in block 786532 on sat 1332171905238774

Simply a text inscription with a link to https://hive.blog/bitcoin/@crrdlx/satoshi

Ordinal 2 - inscription 1302152 found in block 786542 on sat 1113313224212536

A zip file with a .txt copy of "Kicking the Hornet's Nest: The Complete Writings, Emails, and Forum Posts of Satoshi Nakamoto, the Founder of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency"


All of the links to the "Kicking" book or to the ordinals can be seen in the hive.blog URL above.

Hmm. Try a different browser.
3  Economy / Service Announcements / [ANN] Satoshi Bitcoin Converter is now a web app at SatoshiBitcoinConverter.com on: April 14, 2020, 01:58:21 PM

I made the Satoshi Bitcoin Converter application in 2013. The Bitcointalk link is at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=239948.msg2541921#msg2541921.

It was originally a web page, then an Android app (presently still is). The app converts units of bitcoin (and other cryptocurrencies) down into their smaller units, and it reports the current fiat value (dollars and many others). Or, it does the same in reverse. The app is simple, but it works and it's fast.

Anyway, my announcement, then is twofold:

  • 1. The Satoshi Bitcoin Converter is now a web app. This should (a) help resolve issues some people had while loading the current price, (b) should ease hurdles related to apps in the Google Play store, and (c) should allow iOS users to put the app to use.
  • 2. The web app has its own domain name, link: http://SatoshiBitcoinConverter.com

More details on the web app can be read at:


Depending on your system and browser, the Satoshi Bitcoin Converter generally looks like this:



And entirely as a side note, I've been on Bitcointalk since 2012. I've made exactly 5 posts in eight years. And, two of those posts were made today--I'm on a roll!

I wanted to reply to my original post just to clarify something. There's nothing like a clarification on something posted 8 years earlier!  Smiley

Back in 2012, the Bitty miner app links in my original post were quickly removed by mods since they were deemed "suspicious." That's okay, I understand. The links were to an .exe file which can have all kinds of bad things, like malware, spyware, trojanware, etc. Mine did not...the app was nothing more than a pointer to a web page with an embedded javascript for browser mining bitcoin. I also had an .htm version and an .hta version. Likely, I should've used one of those, instead of the .exe, so people could've looked at the page source. Oh well.

Since Bitty was never used by anyone, and since it earned zero BTC, I simply scratched the whole thing. Then, I forgot about it.

Why this reply eight years later then? Two reasons:

  • Because it always bothered me a bit that the Bitty miner and "suspicious" links made me look scammy. At times, I've wanted to revisit Bitty, just to show it for what it was and that the links were not malicious. However, all the files and website were gone.
  • Because only a week and a half ago did I finally rediscover the Bitty miner site from 2012. Since we're all currently on lock down at home during the COVID-19 situation, I've been rummaging through old files, folders, and the like. And, while looking at an old wiki admin panel, there it was!...complete with the miner app embedded in the wiki. The wiki had been deleted, but apparently a deleted wiki is not a dead wiki.

With this new discovery, here was my chance to set the record straight. I understand, nobody cares, and that it doesn't matter. But, I'll feel better!

In the spirit of full disclosure, the Bitty app never sat right 100% with me, here's why:
  • First, it used BitcoinPlus.com to mine. Bitty's embedded javascript simply pointed to BitcoinPlus.com to browser-mine. BitcoinPlus.com always seemed to walk up near the edge of scamminess itself.
  • Secondly, Bitty did require a person's computer to use all of its CPU ability, so, the computer ran hot.

Links
1. The Bitty app website (the "suspicious link" that was removed) was: http://bitty.wikidot.com Maybe the link won't get removed this time since the miner does nothing now. The embedded javascript that made it work points to BitcoinPlus.com, which is no more. Bitty has been neutered.
2. A video of the app in action, from back in 2012, can be seen at: https://player.vimeo.com/video/46534255 Sorry about the rave music. What was I thinking?
3. How BitcoinPlus.com looked at the time: https://web.archive.org/web/20120611082224/http://www.bitcoinplus.com/

Below is the code for the Bitty miner app (the .exe simply opened this .hta file): And, yes, I realize the final /head tag should have been /html, oops. Smiley

5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Satoshi Day on: November 26, 2017, 07:03:35 AM
Okay, since it needs to be done, and somebody's gotta do it, I'm naming the day when one satoshi is on even par with one USD penny as "Satoshi Day". The US dollar is the symbolic de facto fiat and the penny is the smallest unit. A satoshi is the smallest bitcoin unit. When 1 penny = 1 satoshi, we're there.

Things are not as far away as one might think. A single penny is worth only 110 satoshi right now. And with bitcoin rising, that satoshi-to-penny ratio is dropping. Maybe somebody with better math skills can figure out what one penny was worth in satoshi a year ago...must have been a few hundred satoshi to one penny. It's happening.

Traditions will be needed when the Satoshi Day comes. Fireworks? Songs? Lighting your favorite fiat bill on fire and launching it with one of those Chinese lantern things?

I found it tricky to deal with BTC and mBTC and uBTC and couldn't find a simple converter. So, I mashed one up; I think it's right.

Take a look...

Here's a small app (called "Bitty") that mines using BitcoinPlus: [Suspicious link removed] Yes, BitcoinPlus isn't the most effective way to mine. But, it might be the easiest for lots of folks. As I see it, the main benefit of the Bitty app over simply going with BitcoinPlus would be that Bitty is able to start at a system's startup. One of the main drawbacks of BitcoinPlus is that you're required to stay on a web page. Once people see that things go very slowly, they get discouraged and move on. Bitty tries to remedy this in that...

  • you don't have to actually navigate to a web page to run it
  • you don't have to stay on that web page to run it
  • it can be set to run at system startup

Take a look see:[Suspicious link removed]
