1  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: [ANN] - The only Bitcoin Options Exchange on: March 27, 2015, 01:29:39 PM
I'm in the market for some put options so I'm happy to find this site, means I don't have to talk to people.  Grin

Only, I'm not clear on how deep the market is right now. When I see (for example) Amount: 14, does that mean there are only 14 contracts at the given asking price, or only 14 contracts for that strike at all? Obviously I hope it's the former, since I'm not that interested in insuring 0.14 bitcoins.

I bought 10oz silver from Trader Steve some time ago with no problems. I'll happily buy from him again the next time I'm in the market.

If you just installed the client, your laptop is still processing transactions that happened a year and a half ago. It won't register any recent blocks until it's sorted all the older ones out first.
4  Economy / Goods / Re: [SELLING] Games from the Orange Box on: July 01, 2011, 04:48:06 PM
I just read the following page:

Apparently only certain games are in the "extra copies" program? Does this mean if I buy the Valve Complete Pack I won't get giftable copies of Portal, Portal 2, etc.?
5  Economy / Goods / Re: [SELLING] Portal 2 + games from the Orange Box on: July 01, 2011, 04:40:44 AM
No price was listed, so I made one up. I have no idea what's fair for that game.

EDIT: Oh, it's free. Sorry.
6  Economy / Marketplace / Re: BUY 5970S WITH BITCOINS (Newegg Giftcards for Bitcoins) on: July 01, 2011, 01:02:57 AM
Has anyone used this? I'd like to but I'm a bit nervous about sending so much in BTC.
7  Economy / Goods / [SELLING] Games from the Orange Box on: July 01, 2011, 12:05:00 AM
UPDATE: This offer may turn out to be is void, since I'm not sure I can I can't get giftable copies of all these games.

I'm interested in selling the following Steam games:
  • Half-Life 2, 0.4 BTC
  • Half-Life 2: Episode One, 0.3 BTC
  • Half-Life 2: Episode Two, 0.3 BTC
  • Half-Life 2: Lost Coast, 0.1 BTC
  • Team Fortress 2, make an offer
  • Portal, 0.4 BTC (two copies!)

I want to buy a pack that includes these games. I'll buy the pack if I can find buyers for either Portal 2 or most of the others.[/s]
8  Economy / Goods / SELLING: Useless Modern Warfare 2 DVD on: June 30, 2011, 06:15:55 AM
I have a DVD with original case and manual for the game "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2." The game is already activated on Steam and cannot be activated again. I am not the holder of the license for this game, and I am not party to any contract with Activision Publishing, Inc.

I'm selling the DVD, case, and manual for 0.33 bitcoins. Basic shipping is included.
9  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: DDos on difficulty possible? on: June 30, 2011, 05:55:59 AM
1. The difficulty can't increase by more than 4x per 2016 blocks, as a measure against exactly this sort of "attack".
2. The "attack", as others pointed out, would cost several million dollars.
3. Even if you did succeed, it's not clear what harm you would have done. You would have a lot of bitcoins and new ones would come into circulation more slowly. If you held or destroyed your bitcoins, the resulting shortage of new money would lead to an increase in the value of bitcoins. Come to think of it, I kind of hope someone tries this "attack".

A more profitable way to make money from generating random numbers would be the state lottery.
11  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Launch of BitPay, worlds first smartphone-wallet for bitcoins on: June 30, 2011, 05:46:07 AM
I just downloaded the version in the Android Market. I realize this is a very early release, but there are a few features that would make it a lot more convenient:
  • copy/paste addresses (!)
  • an address book
  • allow me to see the address of my Instawallet, so I can access my money if my phone is lost or destroyed (!!!)
12  Economy / Currency exchange / Re: $1000 for 76 BTC on: June 26, 2011, 03:16:05 AM
Hey rizzn, I'm sending you a PM. I can't do Paypal, but I can do Dwolla or bank transfer. Disregard.
13  Other / Off-topic / Holding one's liquor on: June 26, 2011, 03:10:24 AM
Why is "holding one's liquor" (i.e. alcohol tolerance) something to brag about?

Like, isn't the point of drinking to get tipsy (or at least relaxed)? Isn't accomplishing that task with less alcohol more efficient? Shouldn't you be trying to lower your tolerance, if anything?

(Yeah, I'm a bit tipsy as I write this. So what?)

Now tell me where you live and the address of the closest hardware store for me to buy some rubberhose

hmm... rubberhose?  don't get it... sorry.
15  Other / Meta / Re: "Currency exchange" subforum in Marketplace? on: June 24, 2011, 07:45:39 AM
Thank you! Those look like they'll be quite a bit better than the old setup.
16  Economy / Economics / Re: Thinking in bitcoins? on: June 23, 2011, 10:26:53 PM
The biggest barrier to thinking in bitcoins is that I'm not paid in bitcoins. When someone hears that a TV costs $600, what they think isn't "160 Big Macs" but rather "about 3/4 of my paycheck." This is why rich people do seemingly crazy things like pay $500 for a T-shirt---because it sounds to them like $1 does to you.

People who start bitcoin businesses are at an advantage here. They know how hard they work, so they know what a bitcoin is worth to them.
17  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: My new projet: an almost anonymous exchange market place on: June 23, 2011, 02:54:12 AM
I was just coming here to ask the same question. If there's no way to deposit euros, who will give me euros for my bitcoins? Are you seeding it with your own capital or what?
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Curious - Bitcoin is still beta - why should I invest? on: June 22, 2011, 04:26:25 PM
To answer the original question: the reason to invest in Bitcoin now instead of once it's proven itself, is because by the time it's proven itself that will have been priced in. You can't beat the market by doing what everyone else is doing---you have to invest in companies and technologies with uncertain futures.

I bought bitcoins at $0.85 because I thought they were very, very undervalued, which only meant I thought they had a much better than 1% chance of eventually being valued at $85 or more. In fact I think they have a better than 1% chance of eventually being worth $500 or more, which is more than enough upside to overcome even my level of risk aversion (which is pretty high).

Putting money into Bitcoin is not a safe move, it's an aggressive one. If you have a place for that in your portfolio, great! Buy some bitcoins and hold them. If not, great! Put your money into something else, and only buy bitcoins as you need them for purchases.

Edited to add: Ignore the "Bitcoins are not an investment" responses. Bitcoins aren't designed to be an investment vehicle. Neither is orange juice. And yet the CME is lousy with investors trading orange juice futures. Anything you can buy now and sell later is potentially an investment vehicle.
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Place your bets: the price of bitcoin after Mt.gox opens on: June 22, 2011, 05:11:43 AM
I'm going with $13.50 since that's where the market seems to have been hovering lately anyway.

I don't expect a lot of pissed-off selling because, frankly, it's easier and faster to withdraw bitcoins than USD.
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Those Who Ask For Donations - Have You Ever Received Any? on: June 20, 2011, 05:07:42 PM
I've gotten (and given) a few tips before. I don't make a big deal of asking for them---I just figure if someone wants to send me money for whatever reason, I may as well make it easy for them.
