I have a crazy theory that this has something to do with the ratio between supply and demand.  Grin
822  Economy / Exchanges / Re: Is BTCC (BTC China) having liquidity problem? on: November 03, 2015, 09:37:07 PM
Hi,

Does anyone trade on BTCC and make CNY withdrawal request in the past couple of days? My account is being held for investigation after making CNY withdraw couple days ago (about 25K USD).

Anybody knows about their liquidity? I am getting worried.

Thanks
Are you in China? Most countries have rules that get more harsh the more you are trying to move. If you are in the U.S. then anything over $10k is going to require paperwork and time.

Test pump over see you guys at 350.
I'm cool with $350.  Smiley Not that you have any idea what your talking about.

827  Economy / Speculation / Re: I am happy we are going up, but it is going too fast. Hope it slows down. on: November 03, 2015, 02:57:18 PM
I agree. This is silly and unsustainable. I hope we cool off before 500. There is a lot of stuff going on in the bitcoin world right now and a rise in valuation is justified. But we should be at least a couple of years from a moon landing.
828  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: How many confirmations to be sure about a transaction? on: November 01, 2015, 03:35:43 PM
I think of it like this...

0 confirmations = fast food purchase
3 confirmations = expensive dinner
6 confirmations = cool dirt bike
10 confirmations = 40 acre farm

OK, RodeoX, you have almost assigned to yourself a new thread: "New Bitcoin Startups Looking for Crowdfunding"

This may very well change the dynamic here, I would welcome looking at new ideas.  It's too late for factom.org for example, that would have been an interesting investment idea for small investors.

Great find!  + 100

I bet your right. I can imagine lots of solicitations for startups here. Personally I would like $2.1million for my project to end world hunger. I will use the funds to live at a beach resort while I think up ideas. I always think better while drinking margaritas on the beach. heheh

Great news! Now small people without much money to start with will soon find their place in business. Also, bitcoin crowdfunding would surely get its traction with this kind of news. +1
It is exciting news. This has been fought over for years by the investor class. They would greatly prefer that you go to work and make profits for their portfolios. Now you can compete with them through crowdfunding.
Those not familiar with this may not see why it's a big deal. Up until this new ruling the *only people who could legally invest in a business were "qualified investors". And what qualifies an investor? Wealth, that's all. You needed to have 1million dollars in the bank and be able to show that you will likely make 1million dollars this year.
Now think about how insulting that is. The assumption is that if you are rich you will be a good investor, if you are poor you will only screw it up. So to protect you, you are forbidden from investing. If I had a P.h.D in investing but no money I could not invest. If I had down syndrome and a million dollars I would be welcomed as someone who surely will know how to manage money.
Now most anyone will be able to set up an account at an "crowdfunding portal" and place their bets by funding start-ups or expansions of existing businesses. If they profit, so do you! This is not like kickstarter, you are not donating but actually investing. Best of all the rich have already set up an unholy tax regime that will let you keep more of your money than the money you work your ass off to get. 
For small businesses, especially those who have trouble getting funded because they are controversial or disruptive, crowdfunding offers new options. This is a big deal.

You can find out more here: http://www.crowdfundinsider.com/category/crowdfunding-portals/

*There are a few ways you could invest. Such as if you were a member of a co-op, you could invest in that co-op.

Why the gift card? Dell takes bitcoin. As does Tiger Direct and NewEgg. Your just making buying a laptop more expensive and time consuming.

Dell doesn't unfortunately give a discount :p. Looking for a 20% or so discount as OP states.
ah, well yes. 20% is worth searching for.

Oh shit. I was wondering when the pop media would get on to this. That sceen shows an assassination market. Proposed in the 70's, bitcoin makes them practical and a real threat.  Sad

Finally! The crowd funding bill has passed!
Now normal people can actually invest in businesses. Bitcoin will no doubt find utility in this new space.

A lesson on what not to do comes out of East Mill Creek, Utah where 34-year-old Jesse L. Bruner tried to break into a home owned by 47-year-old Russell Reed Jacobs. Bruner was armed with a shotgun and Jacobs had his own firearm. Jacobs convinced Bruner to turn tail and run, but then Jacobs and his son chased his for a few blocks when Bruner turned and fired at Jacobs. Jacobs returned fire and both the criminal and the victim died right there. There was no rational reason for the homeowner to chase after the criminal – that’s what the police get paid to do with their body armor and everything....

Mr. Jacobs may be lucky he got shot instead of life in jail. Chasing a robber and shooting him is murder. You can "stand your ground" in most states, but you can't go after a fleeing attacker. As you point out, that is a job for the cops.

We conclude that such force may not be used unless it is necessary to prevent the escape and the officer has probable cause to believe that the suspect poses a significant threat of death or serious physical injury to the officer or others.

If it's not justified for a civilian to shoot a clearly armed fleeing felon under the same fundamental circumstances as LEOs specified in the ruling above, then fuck equal protection. Non-suicidal criminals drop their weapons and run.
This is one of the different standards between a licensed concealed carrier and a cop. A cop is expected to go looking for trouble and chase down criminals. A CC licenses only allows you to protect yourself or someone in your "immediate presence".  You can't chase them, and in states without the castle doctrine (a.k.a. -stand your ground law) you MUST run away. Even if the attacker is in your home, you have to flee. If you stay and fight you might spend the rest of your life in jail.
This is why the castle doctrine is so important.

It makes no sense to chase the guy. Well, unless it´s a desperate emergency like he´s leaving with your 2 yo daughter under his arm, something like that.

You don´t leave the fort after you´ve secured it. He could have accomplishes that you´re not aware of that´ll invade after you´ve been diverted away. Stay safe.

The two year old kidnapping may work as a defense. You could protect her if it is reasonable to think her life is in danger. A strange abduction is likely to meet that bar. If instead it was a rape then you have no right to shoot. This seems to surprise a lot of people, but rape is not necessarily life threatening. If a woman shoots some guy who is trying to rape her then she is a murderer.  You can use deadly force to protect your life, not your chastity.

You might want to go with a secure physical storage as well. I like to place an un-encrypted copy of my cold wallet on a thumb drive then place it in a safe deposit box at the bank. It's one of the few services banks sill have to offer me.

Maybe I should offer the option to receive your trick-or-treat settlement in bitcoin? I think I'll put a sign next to the candy dish.
840  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Introduction on: October 29, 2015, 08:20:32 PM
You are right to consider what should be avoided.
Do NOT:
-Participate in loans. Most here are scams.
-"Invest" in a bitcoin company. Most here are scams.
-Believe in someone who claims to know the future.
-Use any bitcoin wallet unless you have complete control of the private keys.

DO:
-Spend your bitcoin rather than sell them.
-Backup your wallet! Very important!
-Set up and account at an exchange for buying bitcoin then IMMEDIATELY transfer them to your wallet.

Welcome and cheers!
