461  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Get Hazard Banned! [POLL] on: June 02, 2013, 05:24:08 AM
Second, as much as people are complaining, I don't think I've seen a single report against Hazard (not that everyone should start reporting everything he says to make a point. Seriously, dont)
Well, I decided to quickly look it up and it turns out that you are pretty close! He's only been reported a total of 3 times, with 10-15 days between each report. Therefore, I highly doubt that he qualifies for being banned under the existing guidelines, not that number of reports mean anything.

The people.
I disagree. The people follow a good dev team. Once you have the people, though, you no longer need the original dev team. Bitcoin is an example of that.

And smoothie, I said to keep this thread not about Ripple.

Maged has a good point and I agree.

I also think that the implicit nature of alt-coins being an experiment of an experiment adds value to them if indeed they are trying something different.
The interesting part about this is that doing something different that makes sense and has practical value implies a good initial development team. Love it or hate it, this is why Ripple is still around. Let's not make this a discussion about Ripple, though.
465  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / What makes altcoins valuable? on: June 01, 2013, 06:41:22 PM
I recently saw a discussion where this was asked and apparently nobody knew the answer:
What about these altcoins makes them worthy of investment? Please, enlighten me. I can crank out several per day.

To start with, how appropriate their title is.
I'm asking about inherent value. Vaginacoin is about as inherently valuable as every other release on this forum.

Well, after much observation, let me tell you what the answer is. For at least the first year, the most valuable feature of any altcoin is its development team. Most especially, the altcoin's lead developer. This is the only reason why Litecoin is succeeding where other altcoins have failed. Some people think that what you really need is good marketing, but they fail to see that good marketing comes naturally from a strong dev team.

I'd be interested to see what everyone's thoughts on this are.

Matthew, you have no idea what you're talking about. This business is completely different from the businesses that sell people bitcoins for PayPal, which this business does not do. That being said, this business still needs to register with PayPal's legal department, since the buying or selling of currency is against PayPal's terms of use, even when chargebacks are impossible. Check the fastcash4bitcoin thread for how they did that. You will also want to register with FinCEN as a MSB, as per their guidelines.

If we IP ban them, then they know that they just have to change their IP. However, if we don't IP ban them, they often keep using the same IP address and are caught the very first time someone even thinks that the user might be a scammer. This causes scammers to waste more time for less benefit.
470  Other / Meta / Re: Can 2 people join this forum from the same house without an issue on: May 29, 2013, 02:07:03 AM
You can have as many accounts as you want, even as a single person. The only time IP address might matter is if one of the accounts gets banned (pretty hard to do) or scams someone (would have to be done on purpose). Even then, if we can tell that they are different people, they will not be effected.

If you want, we can also whitelist your brother's account with a vouch from you. Just PM one of the staff members that are online (if the request is high priority) or post in the whitelist request thread (if the request is low priority).

I have a few interesting projects in development, but I am not ready to make them public at this time.

Is it possible to be granted access to the main forums?
I'm afraid not. We absolutely need to know of your projects before we preemptively whitelist you, otherwise anyone could just say that. We also usually require a specific website for the project to prove your dedication to the project.

I am requesting myself on whitelist but also requesting that the requirement of "You must provide evidence that shows that you either understand more about Bitcoin than the average newbie, or that what you want to post can only be done in another forum. " to be less vague.
It's vague on purpose. The point is to prove that you somewhat know what you don't know about bitcoin, and that requires not giving specific examples of things to show that you know.
473  Bitcoin / Important Announcements / U.S. Government Seizes on: May 28, 2013, 08:23:04 PM
Now that it's official, I figured I would make a post about it since it directly affects the future of bitcoin and was also a major bitcoin funding method.
U.S. federal law enforcement agencies on Tuesday announced the closure and seizure of Liberty Reserve, an online, virtual currency that the U.S. government alleges acted as “a financial hub of the cyber-crime world” and processed more more than $6 billion in criminal proceeds over the past seven years.

Relevant discussion threads:
Liberty Reserve shutdown is a boost for Bitcoin?
Liberty Reserve is now dead (Good News For Bitcoin ?)
Costa Rican (Liberty Reserve) arrested in Spain for alleged financial crimes
Liberty Reserve site shuttered. Is this the end? (Perfect Money reacted!)
Liberty Reserve shut down
Trading with Non-License Money Transmitters (aka lending BTC to ANYONE)

477  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: What's the proper format for embedding addresses and keys in QR codes? on: May 27, 2013, 08:10:00 PM
Well, if it's to make a payment, you would want to use the bitcoin URI, especially since it lets you add things like label and amount. If you aren't displaying the address for the purpose of a payment (such as as a reference to the owner of the address, a la a "bank card"), then the bare address would be better.
