Isn't this the same with those Enjoy, Sochi addresses?

Advertising transactions that just bloat the blockchain since they always end up being invalid?

Yup.

Indeed, it seems all of the transactions are attached with standard fee (0.0001 btc per KB) and many of them are confirmed already. But yup, these spam transactions bloat the blockchain.

Now they bloat the bitcointalk, too!  

Wait, this whole place is bloat....

-snip-I have only XP with SP1 installed (and I won't update for various reasons).
-snip-

This is off topic, but whatever your reason are. UPDATE NOW! Running WinXP with SP1 on a machine thats online is like begging for trojans. Your system is most likely infected allready as every scriptkiddie that knows how to install a linux distro can easily "own" your system with metasploit. If you must have WinXP for specific tools that you can not get to run on a modern OS, use VM Ware.

My god that is a horrifying setup.  Please, be responsible with your BTC

Link: Bitcoin to surpass Berkshire as an investment

"Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-A) recently traded above $185000 per share.

The retrospective 30-day average USD price per Bitcoin was 591.97451730 BTC according to Bitstamp and 581.75152994 BTC according to BTC-e which on a volume basis average to 588.052722483 USD per BTC.

This means the value of one BRK-A share in Bitcoin is currently around 314.59764223 BTC.

This bet resolves as No if the NYSE:BRK-A share trades at all points during normal trading hours on March 16th, 2015 over the USD value of 314.59764223 Bitcoin, calculated by taking the 30-day price average of the top two Bitcoin exchanges active on March 13th ( excluding known scams bucket shops and any other fictitious entities ) and averaging them on a volume basis for the past 30 days.

This bet resolves as Yes otherwise."

If this is a surprise, you did not do your due diligence.  Paypal has acted this way for a decade for less risky items than BTC.

12  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Greetings to all on: November 27, 2013, 04:06:01 PM
Greetings Guys;

I have just started mining as of today Smiley
The reason is I bought a new rig 2 weeks ago and thought i would put it to good use.
Though, after reading, it looks like I dont have the correct hardware for it. Dont matter, as i dont really expect much out of mining:)
I have been reading about mining for a couple of hours and I have to say that I have understood some of it (main points). The rest was quit difficult to grasp; still very interesting concept and i think very much inline with the current state of the world.
I have subscribed to this forum in search of new friends in the bitcoin community and also if I can be of any help dont hesitate to contact me.
This is my hardware:
G750JX
ram: 16G
Processor: i7 4700 @ 2.40
GPU: GTX 770M

I meant to install linux on it but unfortunately I run into compatibility issue so I am sticking with win 8.1 for the moment.

Soft for mining 'guiminer': Read that it was ok for newbies
Soft for my wallet 'multibit'. Dont know if thats an ok soft but hope so Smiley

Anyways, enough of babling on my side and thank you to all for all your time.

zongo


Your best bet is to sell the computer and gear and buy bitcoins and hold them for 5 years.  Otherwise you will realize a loss, almost guaranteed.
13  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: I'm looking to start buying ~$30/month in bitcoin using Coinbase. Best tactic? on: November 27, 2013, 03:38:23 PM
I agree with breaking it down weekly, instead of 2 times a month.  The more you break it down, the better, to maintain a cost/risk balance.

I've setup a recurring on coinbase every two weeks.  This way I don't have to worry about it except to move my coins to a cold wallet once a month.

I see your point on the weekly spread though, I may have to change that.
14  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / Re: Black Arrow changed there cloud minions plans on: November 26, 2013, 08:53:50 PM
Today I was looking at Black Arrow Softwares website and found out they changed their cloud mining plans.Now their hashing speed starts from 1thash/sec and costs $2000+.Earlier they were from 100ghash/sec and costed $200+.

Why the sudden change,no beginner miners will start with them for that high power and price.

A beginner miner should just buy a X1 and run it at home.

When you buy a mining contract you're just buying equipment, getting them to host it, and then gifting it to them when the contract ends.

Could it be they are turning into scam before even starting?


Could it be that the majority of cloud miners never clear their initial investment?

Not sure which service you are talking about.

But generally, be nice, ask questions first, then consider spamming a link.  Check with an admin if you can (they have @ in front of their nick).

Me and my wife have been thinking of interesting ways to obtain btc recently, and she is currently offering homemade fudge for btc.  

I am offering to use my Amazon Prime account (includes free 2 day shipping on most items, in the USA), to place orders for people who want to pay via BTC.  If anyone is looking for an order placed, I can do that for you.  Will provide screenshot of order, and also relay all tracking information to you as it is updated on Amazon.com.

If you have any questions, just ask.

Might want to look into Gyft, as they seem to be the primary way to do purchase from amazon using BTC.  

Anyone considering using you should use a vetted Escrow agent until your reputation speaks for itself.

Good luck!

I would be happy to use an escrow at first, not an issue at all.  Just trying to think of interesting ways to get some extra btc, while helping serve people at the same time.  I think DannyHamilton would be a good escrow.

Great, you should be good to go then.  Had you refused, the scammer alerts would start rising.  

I would suggest joining the IRC channel #bitcoin and discussing further in there.  The place is full of trolls but often a few nice tangential ideas get flung out of there.  

There is also bitcoin-otc.com/  that will allow to setup a bitcoin-otc entity, so nobody can impersonate you.  You should learn to use encryption reasonably well.

You should keep NO COINS ON A WEB-WALLET....  Run bitcoin-qt on your own machine and encrypt your backups of your keys, in several places.  

Enjoy!

edit:  I just should'ed all over you, sorry about this.  replace 'you should' with 'I would'.  cheers.

Proceed with caution, his bitcointalk account:

"Date Registered:   March 10, 2013, 11:08:41 PM"

You really think a $10,000,000 holder in bitcoin wouldn't have been on this forum prior to March?

Proceed with caution.


Should anyone choose to proceed:

Use vetted Escrow!

Since you demoted me MP doesn't want to pay me anymore. You now owe me a lot of coins.

Do you even shill?
20  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: BitBet Scammed me for 10 BTC (properly formatted) on: November 26, 2013, 07:36:08 PM
Your agreement with the conduct of MPOE-PR and other individuals involved (and your lengthy association with them in #bitcoin-assets) hints that you will conduct yourself similarly in business dealings, so your inclusion is warranted.
If some more respectable community members weigh in on deadweasel's behalf and/or believe that my list is unfair, I'll be happy to change it.
It is COMPLETELY unfair to judge one person on the actions of another without a definitive connection. Whether or not you feel bitbet, MaPo, MPOE-PR, or anyone else is a scammer or cheat, has no relation to anyone else.

I don't have a side to take with bitbet, but i have chatted quite frequently with MaPo, pankkake, and a few others posting on this thread in #bitcoin-analysis and have found them to be incredibly adept and quite humorous at times. Does that mean you don't trust me as well? The logic just isn't there man, you can't justify it.

If my opinion matters to you, there it is.
Is this more acceptable?
Scammers' Associates:
deadweasel
pankkake
davout
mike_c

No.  I refuse that demotion.  Please leave me on the scammers list.
