Completed and easy transaction with TerraMaster.  I bought 1 KS for .001btc.  Enough to let me experiment with Sia client for a while

I am running skycoind headless on one machine, but I would like to access the web interface from another machine on the same local network.  Is there a way to enable web access from an address other than the localhost?

If you want to experiment, make your own coin.  There is $350 million in market value in Litecoin, and a rogue hard fork puts that value at risk.  A big part of that value is due to the stability, longevity, and widespread adoption of litecoin.  The technology is proven.  Your proposal will destroy the very factors that make Litecoin valuable as it is today.

Cryptocurrencies live or die by Metcalf's law - the network effect.  The value of the network increases nonlinearly with the number of users.

Litecoin is the #2 crypto by market cap and is beginning to get some merchant adoption.  If it is forcibly split into two chains, the value of both chains will likely be less than today's total.  Uncertainty will kill merchant interest. Two smaller, weaker versions of litrecoin, divided, will both fail and be surpassed by others that are more stable.

Cryptos do not exist for the miners.  Mining is a service to secure the chain.  It should be hard.  In a mature system, mining should earn low single digit % returns, otherwise the coin is no better than a bank.

Just now tried to make 4 more BTC withdrawals (less then 1 BTC each).  Two succeeded and two failed.  Success shows up in the blockchain immediately, so you know right away if you are screwed
10  Economy / Exchanges / Re: MtGox withdrawal delays [Gathering] on: February 04, 2014, 07:33:41 PM
My transaction of 1/26 was refunded to my Gox account last night.  My account shows an "In" transaction dated 2/3 "Cancelled transfer because of timeout: Bitcoin withdraw to 1DQq...."

Three other failed transactions from 1/27 and later are still MIA.   Overall 8 out of twelve transactions of less then 1 BTC succeeded.  4 failed, and 1 returned

The failed BTC withdrawals seem random. I have had 2 out of 8 that are stuck over the last 4 days.  All are less than 1 BTC each. 

Doe anyone have any idea how Gox fixes these (if they ever do)?   Do they cancel the transaction and restore your BTC?  or do the create a new transaction and resend your BTC?
12  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: MtGox bitcoin withdrawal delay >:( on: January 27, 2014, 09:24:13 PM
The problem seems intermittent.  I had one BTC withdrawal fail and another succeed.  Using i found the stuck transaction and it indicated it was rejected by the network as a double spend.  I submitted a ticket to Mt Gox and now waiting.
13  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: The simplest trade? on: December 01, 2013, 05:52:56 AM
Good luck moving USD between exchanges around the world.  While technically possible, the process takes days and there are fees.  I expect that only very big, very well-banked players can succeed at this arbitrage

Search the forum and you will see that getting money out of Mt Gox is a nightmare.  This is why Mt Gox prices are higher - nobody can get USD out of Gox, so there is little net selling on the exchange.

For Bitcoin to have any hope of becoming money for every day use by the common nontechnical person, it must use simple whole numbers for small transactions.  It will be very confusing for many people to pay 0.00365 btc for a coffee.  3.65 is much easier to grasp and less prone to error.

Otherwise, LTC or another altcoin will fill these very important need.

Traditionally gold was the money of the wealthy, while silver was the money of the common man.  This history will repeat if Bitcoin does not adjust.

This is about marketing.  At this stage, it is the marketing of Bitcoin that will make it succeed or fail.

You are correct. Maples are 99.99%.  However, the American Eagles are 99.9%, so I guess I could say the coins are 99.9% or more :-)

Ebay/Paypal are set up to sell retail goods, not financial products like bitcoin. They will only back a seller if he can prove delivery of a physical good.  This means a shipper tracking number and signature upon delivery. Sellers are also effectively required accept returns, so you are at risk of having "used" Bitcoin key returned to you with no recourse.  It is all clearly stated in their buy and seller protection policies.

Follow up on my above post:

I uploaded my scanned drivers license and utility bill to Mt Gox for verification shortly after my post this morning, and about 6 hours later I was approved.  Still no idea why I was blocked, but at least they processed my docs quickly.  I was able to send 1 BTC out of my account this afternoon.

I think many of us understand growing pains, issues with new technology, DDOS attacks, and the regulatory nightmare, but if bitcoin service companies would simply communicate with customers, people would be much less frustrated.
