I think they only take bitcoin now.  Huh

EDIT: Oh, I see they also take other payments.

Have you bought gold from them?

Yes I have, and a non-trivial amount. Here are some other options. http://bitcoin.directory/precious-metals

What is annoying is that he has been claiming to be Satoshi for over a year now and can't seem to put in the two minutes work required to sign a Tx. He (Satoshi, not Craig) knows that his identity could be proven in a moment by doing this. But instead Craig wants us to just trust him.

Let's get this straight, The guy who invented "trust-less cash" can't sign a Tx and wants us to trust his word... Math or it didn't happen bro!

The man who last year made global headlines by claiming to be Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of bitcoin, is working with a fugitive online gambling entrepreneur to file scores of patents relating to the digital currency and its underlying technology, blockchain.

826  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Just got my first bitcoin, What is the next step? (noob question) on: February 28, 2017, 08:18:37 PM
The 2 most important things you can do:

1. Move the bitcoin to a wallet under your exclusive control. Right now you really do not own any bitcoin. Wallets contain the private keys used to spend. If you use an online wallet you may be sharing those keys or not have access to them. If the website closes tomorrow "your" money is gone. You want to be the only person on earth to have those keys.

2. Make several backup copies of your wallet!! If there is only one occurrence of your wallet then there is a big risk that it will be lost, stolen, corrupted, etc. In that case there is absolutely no way to recover your coins. Keep your backup safe. Copy it to three thumb drives and put one in the bank, one buried in the back yard, one mailed to your Aunt in Vermont.

828  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: New computer on: February 28, 2017, 06:40:30 PM
You have good answers already. So I'll put it in theoretical terms. All you need is your "wallet.dat" file. That file contains the private keys needed to spend bitcoin from an address it controls. Never ever lose this file or you are sunk. If you install bitcoin core on any machine it will look for this file in the bitcoin folder. If it's there it will be used if not it will create this file. When you put your backup wallet.dat file in it's place that one will be used. It's all about the wallet.dat file.
829  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Can Bitcoin be used by ordinary citizens? on: February 28, 2017, 06:27:41 PM
No. you must be an extraordinary person to use bitcoin, not just ordinary. It's in the code guys.  Cheesy



Code:
# include <iostream>
# include <algorithm>
# include <bitcoin_use>
int main() { if extraordinary = {1};
int count = (1) bitcoin_use printf "Yes, you can use bitcoin";
int count = (0) bitcoin_use printf "No, you can't use bitcoin";
}
830  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Community vote for bitcoin code ? on: February 27, 2017, 05:14:03 PM
I know the bitcoin foundation used https://consider.it/ software to help establish consensus on development.  It is a nice system for this task. I met with the developers in Portland a few years back. Good guys. It would be ideal if every stakeholder  had a vote on development.  But I'm not sure how to do it without cheating.
831  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Can you beat the house edge on: February 27, 2017, 02:42:00 PM
It's called an edge because you can't predictably beat it. In fact it is logically predictable that the house is the likely winner of any bet. If you want to get rich in gambling you buy a casino, not put your money up for a likely loss.
Do you think everybody is rich enough to buy a casino ? lol Moreover,there wouldn't be any profits if everyone went around buying casinos.No,you cannot predict if the house is likely the winner of any bet.Provable betting system exists for a reason.

Maybe he's just illustrating that if someone wants to earn from gambling, instead of gambling against the casino, just make one. Because statistically, the casinos will win against every gambler gambling on the casinos.

That is what I mean. At a casino the house has to be the most likely winner. They are not playing a game like the casino patrons, they are working a mathematical system to win more often than anyone else. They may lose individual plays, they may pay out more to a specific gambler than they made, but over time and on average they will have a more or less predictable advantage on all bets. "Provable betting" shows all the math, but is in no way a level playing field. Gambling websites are making money not providing a free public gambling service.
832  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: price at all time high while utility at all time low on: February 27, 2017, 02:25:33 PM
Utility is high actually.  Bitcoin is the greatest payment system ever developed, however it is not being used as such. For everyone that spends bitcoin at a store many, many, outers just switch back and forth between BTC and local fiat. If we are speculating with bitcoin rather than using it as a currency then the project will develop accordingly. I would guess that at our current trajectory the cost of trading will soar to match trading in any currency. If you want something different then it's going to be your job to make it happen. Start spending your coin instead of selling it, start asking retailers to accept BTC.
833  Economy / Collectibles / Re: Need some help with physical btc coins on: February 23, 2017, 03:29:45 PM
You will also want to look into the risks associated with physical coins. Bitcoin is extremely resistant to counterfeiting, coins are highly susceptible to it. Consider that it's all about protecting your private keys. Ask yourself "How will I be sure that I am the only person with this key?"

835  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: where can i buy and sell bitcoins at cheap cost on: February 23, 2017, 03:09:19 PM
For that kind of volume you may want a partner, perhaps a miner. Otherwise an exchange may be your best option. I would look for a legal business in your country to mitigate risk.

You are going to have problems with this. PayPal and BTC are a bad mix. Why not just fund an exchange account like a big boy?
the problem rodeo is im not from usa or other  country where is easy to join big exchangers so my earning are from adsanse and other thing that pay me money on paypal so i only have that opcion for now
Ok, that makes sense. I just don't want you to get scammed.  Smiley

There are many stores that take bitcoin. It's all I use to shop online. You do have to hunt around though. This may help.: http://spendbitcoins.com/
838  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: I have found a wallet with 40 BTC on: February 22, 2017, 02:42:50 PM
Hi,
i have found a wallet with 40 BTC.
The last transaction was 2011.
Can i take the money?
Or is it not legal?
Please Help!

Best Regards!

You found the keys to a car. Can you take the car? Is it legal?

Don't be an idiot.  The money is yours.  It is not illegal to transfer bitcoin if you have the key to do it.  Having the key means it is your bitcoin.  Take it and transfer it to another address before another key holder does that. 


Well that is obviously completely false.  Roll Eyes
839  Economy / Speculation / Re: How Will It Affect The Bitcoin Price, If Satoshi Tell The Truth ? on: February 22, 2017, 02:40:28 PM
If Satoshi Nakamoto tell the mysterious truth about his Bitcoin and Blockchain invention and all the secrets to the media, how will it affect the Bitcoin Price ?
There is no secret in bitcoin.  Huh
It is open source and all code is available. Which is why we like open source software. If Satoshi chose to reveal him/herself, it would not change anything about how bitcoin functions. I think it would be foolish to re-value coins based on Satoshi.

If you want it to happen, this would be a good time to contact the SEC.
