Hey folks,

We've made a facebook page:

And we've updated the website with a whole new look, and a new Articles section!

Thanks for all the interest!

Hail Satoshi!
2  Other / Serious discussion / Further Decentralization on: March 22, 2018, 09:53:47 PM
There seem to be a number of areas that need badly to be decentralized further.

Facebook, Instagram, and other social media, including YouTube. Uber, Lyft, ridesharing in general. Airbnb and room sharing. Craigslist. Ebay, Amazon.

All of these companies could be replaced by a single or multiple decentralized protocols, completely open-source and not owned or controlled by any individual or company, "out in the wild" like bitcoin is.

Sure, there are countless ICO's and other projects trying to apply blockchain technology to these areas, but perhaps they're missing the mark. We need truly decentralized solutions, so that censorship of our postings or videos is impossible, so that drivers can keep 100% of their fares, so that we can buy or sell anything over any border without being subject to arbitrary and often unjust legislation.

True decentralization of all of these is possible. Imagine an open-source app, connecting drivers and passengers, but with no CEO or office to call, the code running on its own, perhaps automatically taking a tiny percentage to rent server space for itself. Imagine video-sharing and social networking, completely decentralized, controlled by no man, censorship impossible.

It is key that the solution for each of these be truly open-source and not-for-profit. I would love to hear about examples of projects already working on each of these fronts, and thoughts about how to make them work best to achieve a world we all would like to live in. There are serious questions to address, but I think we as a community will solve them.

Thanks for your time.

Ok; I had not intended to make my node a pruned node. Bummer. Now I've restarted the whole process and am currently syncing the blockchain. I have the space, but my network connection is painfully slow, so it will be a while. I'll post here again when I am able to try again.

I'm not sure why core wouldn't run, but I restarted the machine and now it will. But now I'm back to "progress increase %0.56 per hour" ... Be back in a week or so I figure...
4  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Stuck in scanning on: October 01, 2017, 06:27:50 PM
Looking in my bitcoin.conf I see I have a line "prune=550" will this cause problems?
5  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Stuck in scanning on: October 01, 2017, 06:23:15 PM
Ok, now I don't know what I did, but bitcoin core won't launch anymore.

It's not already running, I checked, there's no bitcoind or bitcoin-anything process running; I'm pretty confused.
6  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Stuck in scanning on: October 01, 2017, 05:14:06 PM
And here's a screenshot of armory, where it says 96.3:

7  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Stuck in scanning on: October 01, 2017, 05:07:52 PM
So, I have now updated bitcoin core to 15.0.1 again;
I'm looking at the debug window in core and I may have found a problem or an answer,

Where it says "Memory Pool" and "current number of transactions," that number is not staying put, it's growing -- will i need to wait for it to finish before it will work?
8  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Stuck in scanning on: October 01, 2017, 05:01:17 PM
Since it should work with 96.3 and 15.0.1, I'm going to restore my bitcoin core back to 15.0.1 and see if that makes a difference.
9  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Stuck in scanning on: October 01, 2017, 04:56:28 PM
ok, so,
I'm running Armory 96.3
I did not have server=1 set in my bitcoin core conf, i set that in .bitcoin/bitcoin.conf and restarted core;
When I run Armory, it shows this screen:

And the log file is
The relevant part/new part of the log file is

Any help greatly appreciated.

So, I've now downgraded bitcoin core to version, and now when I run armory, it does show "connected (0 blocks)" in the lower right corner (first time I've seen that! woohoo!) but it still doesn't seem to be loading the database correctly.

Updated armory, recompiled it, basically did git checkout, git pull, autogen, submodule init, submodule update, make and make install.

Tried again, now I get this:

Reading other posts, I tried doing a git pull to update, ran armory again, similar situation, still stuck on scanning, but it looks a little different now:

And the new logfile:
Any help much appreciated.

Hey there,
I finally got my blockchain synced up with bitcoin core and now I'm trying to get armory online.
However I'm getting some errors and it seems to stay stuck scanning the database in offline mode. Any help figuring it out much appreciated.

The part of the logfile that seems most relevant is here:

I thought this saying was because choir boys/girls were considered to be very righteous? Therefore you don't need to preach to them, because they understand already.

Uh yeah it's a bit of a play on that... the idea here is, if you're in the forum, you ought to be "the choir" in the sense that you ought to get the idea of bitcoin. Yet most here seem oblivious. So, preaching to the choir, because they just don't get it.
15  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: Church of Bitcoin on: September 11, 2017, 12:54:22 AM
is there a real church like that?

Yes, we hold our services Sunday mornings at 11am at 124 Dewey Rd, Salisbury, VT 05769, in the church-shaped building, upstairs above the horse tack room. The building is just a shell, the inside is not "finished", and our steeple is nothing fancy to look at, but yes, it is our church and we do hold our services there.

As mentioned on the webpage, if you would like to attend one of our services, you should reach out to us by email at first, so that we can be expecting you; the church is on private property and all visitors must be expected.

Hey ladies and gentlemen,

Here we are, four years later! And I link to this post nearly every day.  Grin Grin Grin

Any of you folks that commented on it back in 2013 now sitting on big stacks of bitcoin?  Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin
17  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: Church of Bitcoin on: September 07, 2017, 11:00:58 PM
This is fascinating, when do you plan to build your physical church or you will just build a virtual church?, Do you have any Bible to use here?.

We have a structure that we are currently using as our physical church here in Salisbury Vermont; we hold services on Sunday mornings at 11am. If you are interested in joining us, please reach out by email,
18  Economy / Trading Discussion / Algorithmic trading with bxbot and the Schaff Trend -- Java on: September 07, 2017, 12:44:33 AM

I'm trying to figure out how to implement the "Schaff Trend Cycle Indicator" into a trading strategy for bxbot

I got this code from here:

and I have an example of what a trading strategy for bxbot looks like here:

But I am not skillful with Java, and I am having a hard time figuring out how to do it. Anybody have any general guidance for me? Advice? Suggestions? Examples of similar scripts in Java?

Would also be willing to pay a (very small) amount if somebody thinks they can do it for me easily enough. Not if it's a "many hours of work" type of thing but if you can glance at it and do it in ten minutes, then I could probably pay enough to make it worth your while.

19  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: Can ONLINE machine be a VPS (eg AWS) and (2) can VPS go thru Tor or VPN? on: September 05, 2017, 10:59:46 PM
I know this is an old topic; however, I'm looking to do exactly the same thing. I am located in a very rural/remote area and my internet connection is usually very very slow (never faster than 6mbps; often as slow as 100kbps). I cannot keep an updated copy of the blockchain on my local machine; in fact, I can't even obtain an updated copy of the blockchain on my local machine without jumping through some crazy hoops.

I'm running bitcoind and geth on a VPS; I would like to also run the "online" half of Armory on that server. Is there any place with documentation/guidance on how to do that? I recently compiled Armory from source here on my local machine, but I can't find any information about operating Armory from the command line/headless.

Please advise!
