Does your laptop look like this?:



A laptop is never going to cut it. The picture above is a bitcoin mine. And those are not just PCs strung together. Those are running ASIC chips built specifically for bitcoin mining.

God is real. Period.

Well, you can't argue with that logic. Literally.

lol. Cheesy

There is something fishy about all this.  Huh

I vote TOR. VPN requires trust, TOR does not.

Is this ok to download? Anyone here downloaded this?

When is it ever a good idea to download and run closed-source software from an unknown creator? I'm not saying this is malicious, but you are crazy to use any bitcoin related software that is not open source.

Let's tell them guns are gay! Maybe they will switch to throwing rocks, like a real man? Then we mow them down in a hail of gay bullets.  Cheesy

Not that I totally disagree with the expanding power of the presidency, but it is ironic that the story comes from a country with an actual monarchy.  Cheesy

OP, were you trying to pay a ransom on to this person?  What was going on here?

Hmmm. or did the scammer get control of his computer?
Certainly you should never pay a ransom. If people start paying there will be no end to the expanding use of ransom-ware.

Here it is:

https://blockchain.info/address/1QAFuUxb1YkMs7zoMHtvWGSRKRPGB5xCB4

It looks like an active wallet.
The "owner" can not be determined. I'm confused, why did you send to this address if you do not know who's it is? Or did a malicious attack send the coins? Also, what client or online wallet do you use?

You could spend it the way God and Satoshi meant it to be used. The stuff I bought three weeks ago at $390/BTC is still worth about the same.
831  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: **PUBLIC ALERT** Change with process of "mining" BTC or it WILL fail. on: October 31, 2014, 07:03:33 PM
Ok, I think I understand you better now. You are more thinking of a plurality of coins issued by individuals and backed by their personal credibility. More of a credit system? I can see a role for something like that. I origionally thought you were proposing a bitcoin like coin that has a central authority to hand them out. With many such coins representing individuals, are their valued based on the demand for your credibility? So that a scammer type has little chance of finding buyers vs. a good guy. ?

 I think I get it.

Really hope you sell it for bitcoins Smiley

Congrats! I'm at about 100K, I'm trying for 250K. Gota love a Beamer!
Mine is close to 300K (320d)  Cheesy
Oh wow, that's great. So as not to hijack this thread, I will add that BMWs are great cars that last and last. They really are a bargain when you consider how long they live.

Chemtrails now! Really?

Ask one of my 2nd. grade students what they are. They can explain how water in the atmosphere condenses around particles when the heat from a jet passes through the cold sky.

835  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Something HAS to be changed with the process of "mining" BTC or it WILL fail. on: October 31, 2014, 05:41:35 PM
pow or pos makes no difference. Coins cant be mined into existence. That won't work. Coins need to be issued into existence from trusted parties.  
I would never put a penny into some old boy network coin. They are worthless to me. The fact that anyone can compete for coins makes senses and is fair. Issuing coins is one of the big problems in monetary systems that bitcoin solves.

Such hypocritical bullshit spews out of bitcoin zealots mouth.. Let me dumb it down for you.. bitcoin's networks is a good old boys network now. That is what this thread is about. Everyone can not participate or compete.  
So who are the lucky people who will receive your coins? Am I going to get some? Or am I suposed to buy them from your friends?

I gave and sold off all my coins 10 months ago. I am not in it for personal gain and no longer support bitcoin or the scarcity model for currency.

I meant the coins in the system you outlined. My concern with any system that issues coins is that the issuer has total control over that process. They can issue them or not issue them to whom ever they like. The fact that bitcoin solves the problem of distributing coins by rewarding anyone willing to strengthen the network is brilliant.
I just don't trust a system that requires people I don't know to do the right thing, especially when there is an incentive to do the wrong thing. Nobody decides who I can buy bitcoins from. Nor can anyone tell another peer that they can't try for a block reward.  Who decides in an issued coin system?
836  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: How governments/ISPs can easily crash Bitcoin on: October 31, 2014, 03:35:10 PM
That's not how Bitcoin works.

You sign your transaction on your computer. Then you send the signed transaction over the network. Anyone can view that signed transaction and they would not have your private key.

This.

/thread.
Agreed.
Why do so many threads start with a bold assertion in the title, then the text is a question about the correctness of the title?
