one thing i do see clear as day. if they can pay in under a month at 20% extra. they should buy a pen and paper use the college library and wait a month. saving them 20%.

actually with BTC to FIAT fees it would be alot more then a 20% loss.

if they cant pay today chances are they cant pay in a month.

plus if its for real world products. they should be requesting real world cash from a parent.

i too dont think mlawrences flame that jackdavis is a hillbilly merits much either.

i just think mlawrence got mad at being called a drug dealer so grabbed at any thread of straw he could.

either way jackdavis concept is good, but it just doesnt seem to be in the right hands.. maybe best someone steal the idea lol

as for the lawyer thing us brits never like to use the term lawyers no matter what level of experience the legal person has.

we prefer to call them what they are:

money grabbing bstards lol
solicitors, advisers. clerks and all the other individual titles
16264  Economy / Lending / Re: Starting up a UK based mining operation (Donation) (Investment) on: October 24, 2012, 08:53:38 AM

It costs less than 1 btc for a domain. It costs VERY TINY amounts for shared hosting. IT COSTS NOTHING TO SET UP A BLOG OR FORUM.

Looks like someone who just wants 30 free BTC.

am i missing something? i read the title about a UK mining operation, read the BTCJAM listing for BFL jalapeno's..

but everyone else is talking about web hosting and blogs?? has something been edited?

if something has been edited i hope it was just to add more information. removing information should just look like this
16265  Economy / Lending / Re: LOAN to start a UK payment gateway on: October 24, 2012, 08:30:25 AM
im not endorsing anything. im not investing,

but if he does get the business up and running just using his own funds and becomes a success then i might use him, as the UK needs more bitcoin stuff.

i don't buy into businesses until they have weathered the test of time.

that being said we do need UK bitcoin business and the concept. if you ignore the loan begging has much promise.

maybe someone who is respected the UK should take on the idea and just roll with it themselves either stealing the concept or employing him for a month or two to implement it. hopefully if the business works out he takes my litecoin hint onboard.

ur all forgetting one thing guys. bitcoins bad rep. silk road, fake ID blackmarkets, firearms sales.

real world merchants don't want to touch bitcoin with a barge poll. i myself am concentrating on getting litecoin adopted.

i have found more interest, less negative feedback and less head banging trying to explain litecoin by simply advertising litecoin as the clean version of bitcoin.
16267  Economy / Lending / Re: LOAN to start a UK payment gateway on: October 24, 2012, 07:34:45 AM
dont let the flamers dishearten u, we need an easy to fund bitcoin operator.

if u ever travel near bristol ill meet u, i can smell an american a mile away to know if u are one or not, they have orange tans and hill billy accents.  Grin

i myself am a litecoin lover, ever consider your concept, but on litecoin instead of the dark side of dodgy drug dealing known as bitcoin (newspapers opinion dont shoot the messenger)

pirate is no longer an active member so warning people about him is useless..
16269  Other / Meta / Re: Suggestions Welcome on: October 24, 2012, 02:46:16 AM
from a BTC-E point of view i see no issues with u. but from a forum point of view many of us like to expand our opinions without restraint.

i gave up my INABA BFL flaming weeks ago. i came to the conclusion, although his comments dont hold water. what can my comments do. its not like i can slap him with a wet fish to get a proper answer out of him.

so now i try to think before i speak. and only comment on relevent matters that effect the community not an individuals brainfart of an answer

When its live, ill use u. I have been searching high and low for a UK based bitcoin provider. One idea might be to use ur profits to buy some mining equipment to produce ur own coins to add to ur income potential.
16272  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: VC Fred Wilson Planning Bitcoin Bank? on: October 22, 2012, 10:52:49 PM
give a guy your bitcoins for months on end in a promise for interest in return. hmmm trendon shavers comes to mind.

the only reason i use banks are for my wages to be paid. if i was to be paid cash in hand or in bitcoins i would have no need for a bank,

This idea is flawed on the principles of standard banking, but more likely work if advertised as a investment opportunity. unless i can put my real world wages into the account to bypass standard banking. i do not consider this idea to be a 'bank' at all.. just an investment account.

I know in many countries a business needs to meet strict criteria to be classed as a 'bank' even the great richard branson of the 'virgin media' corporation has had issues with the legality of becoming a bank. and he is a billionaire.

i advice people remain cautious
16273  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How secure is Bitcoin-qt wallet? on: October 19, 2012, 02:54:40 AM


I removed virus for my living - the vast majority of end uses don't understand the basic operation of a computer, much less the concepts of networking, security. Most of them don't even understand how a program runs or have the ability to discern between real software and malware.

I have one customer who calls in about once a week to have the "FBI - moneypak" virus removed. He just won't stop going to some shady porn sites and "finally clicks yes" on a prompt asking him to install something because it won't let him off the site if he doesn't, I can't convince this customer to avoid the site or to simply rightclick close the browser stack when he gets that msg. But hey as long as he wants to keep paying me $100 a pop for 20 mins of work... whatever.

i too have had many people who have received this 'warning' they were young and old male and female.

its a facebook advert that prompts stuff like.
"someone has a crush on you click here to see who"
"new message click here"
"someone wants to share a photo"

u get the jist..
i seen it myself as one person gets it soo often they actually deemed me the culprit. so i went to their house and asked them to do their normal activities. sure enough they were drawn to the facebook advert.

many people in england now know it to be from facebook redirecting them off of facebook to stealth download of the fake warning.

it use to come up as a fake antivirus, but now its an FBI thing.

so not really linked to porn, as i myself once thought.

its up to you to inform your regular customer why they keep getting it and to stick to the standard facebook message, photos and friend buttons. or continue milking them dry, as i done as the moron deserved it

i too think the weakest part of the computer system is not the firewall.. but the user.
16274  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitium is the fundamental resource that we mine and exchange on: October 17, 2012, 11:06:33 AM
bitium makes it sound like it belongs on the periodic table of elements. which it never would. there are many commodities that dont have an ium at the end.. and the same goes for currencies too.. so why bother..

gold and silver are not 'iums' so theres no point making bitcoin an ium.. i personally think iums should be reserverd for items on the periodic table. so if silver and gold, which are on the periodic table have not had to be reverted to silverium or goldium, then i cannot see any point in why one person should fight to get bitcoin replaced to bitium.. its false advertising..

bitcoins are/wll be a commodity and currency, not an periodic table element.

16276  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Another take at intellectual property - what about bitcoin private keys? on: October 14, 2012, 01:36:43 AM
i read the title of this thread and thought about knocking my head against a brick wall wondering why anyone would use interlectual property laws when they never invented the blockchain or the white paper concept of bitcoin.

unless you personally thought up and invented the blockchain/private key we today call bitcoin.. its not your intellectual property. you just have a free licence to use it.

ok now thats covered the legalities in simple terms. lets get to the use of bitcoin technology and how we can protect what we have.

you cannot claim intellectual property privileges/rights of bitcoin as its not your intellect.. your brain fart didnt make bitcoin (as a whole) exist. The bitcoin technology belongs to the guys that made the white paper about the bitcoin concept and they have allowed free user licence along the same terms of open source linux

however you can claim ownership of assets manufactured from someone elses intellectual property.

EG satoshi owns a gold mine(bitcoin code) and allows anyone in the world to mine on his land(blockchain).. and they can keep what they find. (hope u understand the analogy). You dont own the land. But you do own the gold you get and you have a licence to access the land.

your private key is your licence and just like your driving licence, it's an identification to give you access to the land, an identification to go to the bank to cash in or out your gold.

your private key is not deemed as your intellectual property, your private key is your 'identity' and your coins are your asset.

so if looking for legal protection, identity theft and asset/property theft are what you should be looking into.. not intellectual property but standard property..

if i was to for instance, guess your password to your FIAT online bank account and empty your savings. you would not be trying to get me arrested for intellectual property theft. it would be identity theft and theft of assets.

same goes for hacking your forum username and requesting coins from strangers on here to scam them.. you wont try getting me arrested for intellectual property theft because you own your username. you would get me arrested for identity theft and fraud.

same goes for cloning your driving licence and walking into your bank asking(in your name) to empty out the gold in your safety deposit box.

yes you have in your wallet your driving licence and you deem it as yours.. but its not your INTELLECTUAL property.. it belongs to the DMV in the US or the DVLA in the UK. that ID card is not INTELLECTUALLY yours, but it is your property in terms of goods/products/property/bricks and mortar.

so drop the topic about intellectual property, as its meaningless as a legal bitcoin protection. (unless your satoshi)
16277  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: I questioned the "Bitcoin dev team" (Andresen & Co.) on complying with AML laws. on: October 14, 2012, 12:09:34 AM
i haven't read most of the replies, but staying on topic of the OP's post.

your leather wallet you have in your pocket. it has no laws governing how you spend your cash.. the same applies to bitcoin clients.

AML laws would only affect bitinstant and other FIAT to bitcoin businesses.. as they are the start and end points of the money train between the controlled fiat and the uncontrolled bitcoin. so you will see alot of laws being directed at the gates into and out of bitcoin.

16279  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: If Bitcoin ever did go completely mainstream... on: October 13, 2012, 03:34:06 PM
sorry for a stereotype i might next say, but in countries like russia. vodka has a value to use as trade between individuals, it has done for years. if you wanted your car fixed, you could go to a garage and give the mechanic a bottle of vodka to cover his labor and it would work.

that being said russian government still have not lost control of their FIAT holding, even when vodka is deemed more valuable and useful then fiat.

i do not think fiat will disappear, just that a new government will be voted in with new laws and new promises, they may even reprint a new banknote worded differently. but the government will not just give up.

the thing to think about is trying to fight government to drop their control of FIAT is flawed and futile. its basically their intellectual property licenced for public use. we do not own FIAT we are just allowed to use it.

what we can do though is highlight that FIAT is not the only choice. many people do not know better and think that FIAT is the only way to trade for goods and services. so instead of trying to fight control of FIAT from our armchair army. we need to make bitcoin as consumer friendly, reliable and robust far beyond what FIAT is. So that it can compete WITH fiat, and not against.

we need to get to a point where if employers wanted to pay their staff in satoshi's, they can. but the struggle is not government power that is to blame, its real world opinions of what bitcoin is used for that needs to change. that is the true first hurdle.

the government blame is at the 3rd or 4th hurdle. so lets not let the government be an excuse to not get bitcoin some positive notoriety.

we want a professional currency that stand up against FIAT and exceeds it in every way imaginable. so help get bitcoin to have a more positive image, for merchants and consumers. dont worry about government control just yet.

and if you are going to go on any news reports or make some real world press highlighting bitcoin. DO NOT use max keisers PR guy.. Max Keiser is currently losing his reputation with his sheep noises sounding like a loonytoon on a international news station. that is not what we want.

that being said, i personally hold the opinion that anonymous illecit traders out number the legitimate traders so getting bitcoins bad press swept under the rug is a big first hurdle. instead im considering litecoin as viable option. so far it is clean and has no bad press.
16280  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: If Bitcoin ever did go completely mainstream... on: October 13, 2012, 04:06:49 AM
ok so i put some numbers together..
based on the american national minimum wage, working 40 hours gives an income of $290 a week.
so i see this as a fair minimum weekly income.
i have used this to calculate using the FIAT commodity prices to show what the price would be if it equated to 'labor time'.

so imagine you quit your real life job, and your only income was from bitcoin mining. you would still want to know that the percentage of time you put in eachweek in your old job, still roughly gets you the same products and lifestyle you get purely on bitcoin.

for example GOLD works out as just over 6 weeks worth of income for a guy on minimum wage to buy a troy ounce, and silver works out as just 4.64 hours (roughly) to buy a troy ounce.

now the next step is to figure out the 'international' average income of bitcoins. but for now whether you own a rig-farm or just a couple GPU's, ask yourself this question.

how many coins do you get rewarded in a week. divide that number by 100. then multiply it by the numbers in the column %weekly income. so you can work out how many bitcoins it would cost in a non FIAT world to get these commodities. im still working on a website so you just put in your weekly bitcoin reward and it converts it into commodity prices.

so lets make it simple, u solo mine and u only solve 2 blocks a week giving you 100BTC.

well it would cost you just over 11 BTC for a silver ounce and 606 BTC for a gold ounce.
