Last time there were avatars, someone hacked the forum by uploading javascript to the avatar. This happened:

Also, there was a meter saying that your bitcoins were going to be transferred to "CosbyCoins" (I wasn't here when the forum got hacked, but I have read about it.)

There should be avatar uploads in the new forum software, going to be released around February.

Sorry to necro this thread, but this is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. Bravo for finding the exploit, coding up that masterpiece, and not trying to screw the community. Golden stars all around. Beautiful.

trading ripple was good business. allowed me to make a bit of bits while sitting on my ass. i think its misleading though. while i was doing it ripple had some hiccups and that kept me cautious enough to not do it on a large scale. don't get me wrong, ripple is still a scam. their business plan is literally along the lines of early shitcoins.

Erik Voorhees made an excellent post on OC Ripple here. That and his followups are very interesting. I basically agree entirely with his position. Not a scam, not too greedy, but too greedy to succeed long-term. Just a glorified pre-mined altcoin.

I have been following Ripple at a distance for the last several years since it was created by Ryan Fugger.  So first I want to thank you Zangelbert for qualifying the altcoin here as OC Ripple, because that's what it is.  It is definitely a fork of Ripple original.  Ripple was conceived and developed before 2009.  It just never got any commercial traction until OpenCoin came along.

I don't really see Ripple as being a competitor to Bitcoin, but rather as a complementary currency.  But I'm really talking about Ripple (or Ripple Original) not OC Ripple.  I'm not sure what to make of OC Ripple. it seems to be a hybrid with two masters.  Ripple Original is not really a currency but rather a payment system or means of exchange without being a store of value and without being a means of price discovery.  XRP on the other hand was introduced to simply be a unit of account without being a store of value and without being a means of exchange.
If XRP is still representing only a unit of account in OC Ripple, then it makeS sense that it would be destroyed at some point.  The XRP should get created when a currency enters the system and should be destroyed when the currency leaves the system.  It does not depend on a blockchain.  Not sure about the general ledger, however; I've forgotten.

Someone here mentioned that OC Ripple represented debt.  Essentially that it is true.  The most fundamental definition of currency is debt.  When you give me a valuable or provide me with a service I am in your debt.  If I do not have a valuable or service that you want I give a promissory note or an IOU.  In the US that IOU comes in the form of FRN, in Europe as Euros, in Japan as Yen, in Ithaca, NY as Ithaca HOURS, etc.  You accept this IOU because you know you can pass it on to someone else who provides you with a valuable or service.

One of the driving forces behind Ripple Original is Trust.  A payment travels through the Ripple system over a route of least resistance as determined by Trust.  Ripple was meant be to decentralized (similar to the direction that Chris Odom wants to take Open-Transactions minus the trust).  Each node doubles as a server with the ability to create currency as well as act a as a pass-through for payments from trusted nodes.  Each node has the option of charging a toll before allowing a payment to flow through from Bob to Sally. OC Ripple convolutes all of this while still ideally intending to create a decentralized system based on Trust.

It's nice to know that Erik Voorhees is quite the evangelist for Bitcoin ( I see a lot value in the cryptocurrency and hold some myself), I'm disappointed however that he is so down on Ripple, but not surprised as it is really OC Ripple.

ripple is a scam, you thread necromancer and shill.

Where is the pastebin?

She'll stop at nothing to get some attention, poor Mr. Nakamoto made a mistake of talking to her, he should've denied everything instead of saying hes's not involved anymore.

Side note: damn, what an ugly woman that Leah.

seriously massive case of horseface and male -> female transsexual

MTGOX was a cancer holding back bitcoin.

silk road was a boon, gox was never a boon besides innovating an exchange.
16  Economy / Speculation / Re: Can someone explain how the price is so stable all of a sudden? on: February 28, 2014, 06:45:53 AM
i think chinese buying pressure is too much to reliably short. i will watch closely. i doubt more than -10% change within an hour unless news hits.
17  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: best way to trade bitcoin for usd on: February 28, 2014, 06:32:08 AM
sounds like a scam.

don't use paypal for receiving money.

even if someone seems trustworthy, they have up to a year to take back their paypal "money". you don't know if their morals or circumstances can change during that time. they might get desperate.

i would use western union or similar and split the fees with them sending first, or with escrow.
18  Economy / Speculation / Re: High frequency traders want to speculated on bitcoin? on: February 28, 2014, 02:36:24 AM
I cant imagine how those things are profitable..

Aside from manipulation. Is that the goal? I saw something about someone using an HFT bot to prop the price up and offload at higher prices. How I cant totally understand, but apparently it works.

So how do ones that trade on relevant markets movement work? Only the first one there can win.. and its not even high frequency, just low latency trading then?

from my extremely limited understanding they are able to respond to changes faster and thus make money off of their speed. one thing i remember is that they scour relative news sources for names of companies and keywords that predict future impact of price. extremely interesting stuff. i am sure the first HFT bots for bitcoin will have problems that are able to be exploited.
