This has gotta be the most ignorant attempt by the police to crack down on drugs ever. Either there's something you're leaving out of the story, or fuck wherever you're living.
102  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: [ANN] LocalBitcoins.com - a location-based bitcoin to cash marketplace on: April 13, 2013, 12:48:52 AM

I think the site would do better with a rule that requires sellers to honor the price they post, for at least 24 hours on weekends and 48 hours on work days. And I think buyers should be allowed to leave negative feedback for any transaction, not just escrow-enabled ones.
While in theory this would be swell as a seller on local bitcoins the only problem I have with this is the buyer has the right to walk away at any time no matter what 'rules' you implement. Since it's a face to face cash transaction the buyer can always just not hand you the money. For example a while ago (not a crash day just a regular bitcoin day)I've had a buyer meet me at a Starbucks, walk over and start talking then check the mtgox price on his phone, it had fallen some so he said "No thanks" and just walked off.It was extremely frustrating especially since it was a stupid reason to walk away. While this almost never actually happens, since there is no way to have the buyer locked in too it's extremely unfair to lock the seller in this contract when the buyer in no way shares the lock.

The amazing thing about small products is that you can charge a lot more hashrate wise. People want a cute USB ASIC miner, and even if it's four times the price per MH as other ASIC offerings or what there will still be a lot of people who buy it.

My God.  You must be one of those marketing geniuses about which we hear so much.

By far the cutest thing I have ever seen. When can I buy a dozen?

Q.E.D.

AM should play this to the hilt.  PenguinMiner, PandaMiner, etc.




That would be awesome! I definitely support this idea (only if it doesn't add too much to the cost) but for people who know nothing about bitcoin that would definitely be a good conversation starter for it.

Blockbet - congratulations. I'll get you next time!    Grin

not with those kind of bets you won't. I joined this forum just to try and get a slice of your bet but I was newbie restricted. your bet is a scaled down version of betting money on the world to end. if you win its immaterial. in this example if you win your bet you won 1.5 units of something losing value and if you lose the bet its 1.5 units of the same thing appreciating in value. The more "right" you are the less your bet is worth. how do you ever want to be on the other end of that?
It is kind of contradictory but he probably doesn't believe it'll stay decreasing(e.g. the world ending) and it might be a 'fun' way for him to pick up some coins instead of buying them.He was more betting on the insanity of the selloff when gox reopened than bitcoin staying down.

I own a measly 75 shares of Bakewell on bitfunder I will definitely support a motion to make TradeFortress or Dalkore the new CEO of BAKEWELL if Ian never replies back. However if that doesn't make any headway or is not possible we should definitely be going to the police and try to get him in legal trouble and at least make sure he doesn't get two free avalons out of his scam. It will be an interesting day when a someone is finally convicted of a bitcoin related scam/theft.

Sent you a pm.
107  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: WTB - X6500 FPGA MINER - US ONLY PLEASE on: April 05, 2013, 02:00:14 AM
Actually in fact I paid 9.66476907btc on the 6th of March when bitcoins were around $43 apiece, I most definitely did pay that much for them from EngMan on bitmit. That's how much he was charging at that time. I've gotten around 1.5-1.7 btcs back since then thus my guesstimate in the hole. I don't really want them anymore as the layout I wanted for mining isn't working out so if you want I'll take 5 btcs for them including shipping but I wont go any lower than that.
definitely understand if you don't though.
108  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: WTB - X6500 FPGA MINER - US ONLY PLEASE on: April 04, 2013, 07:17:49 PM
Well, If you're interested I am in about 7.5btc on 2 x6500s I bought from ENGMAN a few months ago. If you would be willing to pay anything near that price I'll sell them to you including shipping. Pretty expensive though :/ Bought them right before bitcoin price explosion.

Which cables did you end up trying?

Would you possibly be interested in $500 worth of bitcoins for the laptop?
Edit: Found a good deal on a laptop on craigslist.

Yea, I've installed and reinstalled almost 5 times now. I tried an older version once or twice to no avail :/
112  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: [SOLD OUT] X6500 FPGA BTC miners (With Escrow) USA ONLY via bitmit or PP on: March 15, 2013, 02:26:00 PM
Where do I input that command though abra? Whenever I try to run the ZtexBTCMiner.jar or the TML.jar nothing happens. Am I supposed to input that information before running them somehow?
113  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: [WTS] X6500 FPGA BTC miners (With Escrow) USA ONLY via bitmit or verfied PayPal on: March 15, 2013, 04:43:44 AM
OK, I am probably doing something wrong, but I can only get the board to produce 38mh/s.

use TML bitstream and you should easily be able to get 425-450.
I run it and average about 475ish,  in a 60F ambient environment.

TML requires linux, right? I have zero experience with it.

Nope.  Java on windows will do.  I've run it on both windows and linux.
I wasn't able to ever get the TML java files to run on windows, is there a special way to run them? I installed java and all the bells and whistles that come with it.
114  Economy / Securities / Re: [BitFunder] Ziggap Bitcoin Sales Service on: March 08, 2013, 07:23:23 AM
This may have been answered, when you do profits do you take all the USD profits at the end of the week and then go purchase bitcoins for dividend purchases? Would it not be easier to just use the USD profit originally to buy bitcoins and hold those until the end of the week. It would be less vulnerable to market flux and would be more honest return in my opinion.
For example On a Monday a customer purchases 1 btc from you guys at 4.49% and that day the market rate was $37/BTC that means you would charge him $38.66 for $1.66$ profit. Could you not just immediately use that money to purchase ~1.0449btc 1 for the customer and .0449btc profit (minus fees and such). As opposed to perhaps the market jumping a bit on Friday to 43$/BTC and you can only purchase ~.0386btc profit. Now I realize this could flip the other way and end up benefiting but I would think it would be better to try to keep the books in btc and not try to gamble for as much of the process as possible since dividends and payments are in btc right? Would love to hear a counterargument to this as I'm really interested in this security.

If you don't reach him I would probably be interested in purchasing one depending on how much you want.

Hey to the other's who bought these, since the power cables aren't included what cable did you guys get/use for these. I have an extra PSU to use for molex for when they arrive but since I didn't get a ton I think a wallwart would be best any recommendations?
117  Economy / Computer hardware / Re: [WTS] X6500 FPGA BTC miners (With Escrow) USA ONLY via bitmit or verfied PayPal on: March 07, 2013, 03:56:56 AM
Hey, I bought one from bitmit yesterday for 6.433BTC, which was $220 the day I bought it. With the huge increase in bitcoin prices, however, 6.433BTC is now equal to around $300. Is there anyway I can get some of that back?

Plug the miner in and you'll start getting some back.

I paid 8 BTC for one myself.

Fortunately I then bought the next couple using paypal.
I wish I had read this before purchasing the 2 I snagged before the mini crash today 4.8btc each. Would definitely have preferred paying for these with fiat.

I know the shipping is free but how fast is it? Is it USPS priority or parcel post? I would be willing to pay a bit extra for priority.


He shipped mine via priority mail.
That's awesome, will probably be picking one up then.
