etc are also fake. Those VCs and Jeremias have never heard of Whaleclub before.

I know these guys personally. While of course their service has a risk, the business is legit. I have been using their service for some time for modest amounts.

Basically they lend the btc and other platforms like bitfinex in an automated way. This means counter-party risk, which is rewarded with the interest.

Hi, we made the fee model change some time ago. The reason for the fee model change is that small deposits cost a lot for all of our users, because spending an output is more costly. People were sending small deposits to our wallet (dust), and causing the fees for everyone to increase. Note that the sending fees went much lower now after this change.

We try to make our fees go lower, but it will take some time and work.

We published this blog post when the fee model changed: https://localbitcoins.com/blog/new-bitcoin-network-fee-model/

Additionally there is information about the fees on the fees page: https://localbitcoins.com/fees

And also on the wallet page the fees are mentioned. The fee varies on depending on the bitcoin network situation. For example at this moment the bitcoin network deposit fee is 0.00036793 BTC - it has went lower recently.

Can you sell this through the localbitcoins escrow?

- Fees are 0.002BTC per outgoing transaction, which includes bitcoin network fee. Transactions between easywallet instances are free and instant.

Time for a fee reduction, no?

This comes as a quite late reply, but the fee model changed to 0,9% per outgoing transaction in late 2013. I still try to keep the service up, and develop it when I have free time (quite rarely).

I have been trying to improve the privacy model of the wallet, and have couple of other minor ideas in mind.

Throw some more money in that black hole? After 50 years and trillions, even more money?

Well, more than a pure donation, I see this project as a more like BTC promotion, and Africa is interesting market for BTC. I don't know what your data or perspective is, but Africa isn't just a black hole which takes all the money, but a participant in the global trade as well.

Hi, LocalBitcoins.com is on board on this project. We will pledge 1 BTC to start, and more when the project proceeds and we see some results.

Localbitcoins.com is a web wallet, the outgoing transactions are not in any way connected to incoming.

14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: [ANNOUNCE] Android key rotation on: August 11, 2013, 08:21:53 PM
I guess, or understand, that 'receive' addresses can be safely used more than once?
Receive addresses should be used exactly one time, then never again.
If you reuse addresses for receiving bitcoins you have no financial privacy, and you're vulnerable to issues like this.
Oh bother. Thanks. In my case I have never used an android device for any Bitcoin stuff so I trust I am safe from the current non random number issue(?)
However, it has been convenient to gather occasional small amounts from the (get free bitcoins) site http://netlookup.se/free-bitcoins/247552
Just to be very clear here, I now should not offer the same receive address more than once then?
tia
(edit)
I note that  this site mentioned above works on the basis of a receive address being used repeatedly.... Is it a scam site? or is it just  doing rather bad things?


If you are receiving miniscule amounts, then it doesn't matter. You can use common sense. The site isn't scam.

Are their some servers already which have fixxed the problem? A lot of bitcoins are now on bitcoin addresses on which I have no access!
I need the bitcoins AT THIS MOMENT.

I guess with some code wizardy you can export the private keys to bitcoind or multibit.
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: [ANNOUNCE] Android key rotation on: August 11, 2013, 06:53:47 PM
This vulnerability is yet another reason address reuse in Bitcoin clients must be eliminated.

Prior to this, using non-deterministic wallets was either a privacy disaster (single key model) or else a usability nightmare (random key model).

Now anything which encourages address reuse should be considered negligent.
Not really.  This is a problem with a specific implementation of a specific secure random number generator (android).

Single-address-per-transaction policy is better for privacy, and also protects from a class of security issues AFAIK. IMHO it is kind of supporting that BItcoinJ dev team hasn't been very keen on implementing proper multi-address support. But then again, it is open source, if you don't like it develop a batch... Myself I don't use BitcoinJ but other solutions.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Here come the MLM scams on: August 11, 2013, 02:40:42 PM
Many thousands of people make an excellent living via multi-level marketing.  Not sure why you think its a scam.  A lot of the products (such as AmWay) are excellent as well.  What I hoped happened is that you educated this person about bitcoin which possibly might open the door for MLM to use bitcoin in some fashion. 

MLM's are very scammy in general. There might be some honest work in MLM's, but generally that "industry" is very, very scammy. I recommend everyone to avoid those. You can use google and research why people think MLM's are scams by default, I think it is a no-brainer.
18  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: localbitcoins doesn't display negative feedback on purpose!!! on: August 10, 2013, 08:08:32 AM
Hi, might be a bug. Currently the "confirmed" status of feedback is determined if the volume between traders is >0.5 BTC, or the total volume of the person who leaves the feedback is over certain amount. If you want to help, send me the trade ID as a private message and I will inspect it.
19  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: How bitcoin sellers are defrauded at localbitcoins.com on: August 02, 2013, 06:43:37 AM
Also, I don't see how it would be a way for buyers to "squeeze" better prices. It might be competitors doing this, to get your ads away, but I don't see how the buyers would benefit from this.
20  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: How bitcoin sellers are defrauded at localbitcoins.com on: August 02, 2013, 06:41:13 AM
Hi, there is the "first-time buyer limit" in the advanced section on the advertisement form, which can help you from these cases. Then you can specify a coefficient as it goes up with volume.

We are also developing other solutions to fix this problem.
