Thanks to all who donated - though I'm a little disappointed with the result, we didn't hit our 5 BTC goal.

The coins have been moved to sell and convert to a cheque to donate to B.A.R.K. Ottawa.

3.21992064 BTC  @  $870.24 CAD/BTC = $2802.10 CAD

Cheers,
 James

Sending in a donation today. Will the btc be valued at the time I send them or at the end of the donation period?

Thanks!  It will be valued at the end of the donation period (unfortunately with the price dropping).  I have not been converting to CAD as donations come in (as can be verified on the blockchain).

Come on animal lovers, lets get a few more BTC in before Friday!!  Its for the dogs!

Thanks!

How come the 1st deposit has no confirmations?

Blockchain.info just doesnt show confirmations once it passes a certain amount.  The first payment was sent by me last night, it already has over 140 confirmations.

ok. if I want to donate can i donate with cash?

Sure just place a cash in mail, or cash in person order on our site www.canadianbitcoins.com, and write on the order form that its for BARK, we'll adjust the rate to spot and send the bitcoins to the address for you so its all tracked in the campaign.

James, can you put in an auto update on how much was raised in the OP, or just update manually every few hours so people are not forced to check the address.

Not sure how to do an auto-update, but i'll definitely check and update occasionally!

What a shitty situation this poor lady found herself in. Those hackers went a step to far making an old lady who runs a nonprofit dog rescue jump through hoops to buy bitcoin and send it to them.
I hate hackers!  Angry
I'll send in 1 btc, and hopefully others will do the same.
Lets go fellow bitcoin brothers and sisters. let's raise this money.

RAISED SO FAR:  3.198 BTC as of 2016-06-11 10:30 EDT
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi everyone, its been a long time since I've been active here, but felt that this warranted a return to the forums...  

Recently a local dog rescue charity got hit by ransomware.  Their story has made National headlines on CBC as well as onto CBC Radio One "The Current".

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/ransomware-hack-bark-charity-virus-1.3585039
http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/dog-charity-gets-files-back-after-ransomware-scam-1.3620986
http://www.cbc.ca/radio/thecurrent/the-current-for-june-9-2016-1.3623796/ransomware-threat-attacks-hundreds-of-canadians-1.3623856

You can read more about what we are doing to help them here:

https://www.canadianbitcoins.com/bark-ottawa.php

But the short of it is, we're trying to raise a total of 5.0 BTC for them from the bitcoin community, to show them that not all bitcoiners are bad people.  

We have donated an initial 1.0 BTC to get the ball rolling.

The donation address is: https://blockchain.info/address/1HD921z1ojj6cU4wNubJo5mKUSgvCEPPdx and we will utilize our brokerage to convert to CAD at spot rate and 0 fees, and bring them a cheque on June 24th.

Please help us in supporting the dogs that suffered!

Thanks!

James

CANADIAN BITCOINS LAUNCHES INSTANT-PAYMENT ELIGIBILITY

Hello Canadianbitcoin.com followers.

We have exciting news to share, and we hope you'll think it is too. We now have instant payment on Interac Online and Moxipay buy orders 24/7. You now can buy your Bitcoins and get them when you want and need them. We have had several clients looking for us to offer an option that allows them to buy and receive Bitcoins when we are closed for the day, and over the week-end. We think that "instant processing" will provide the solution to that.

Now you do have to have a verified account with us, and you will see that you will have to have a trusted account with us. Trusted means that you will have had to meet some eligibility requirements. You'll have to have a verified account with us for at least 14 days, with purchase transactions in that type of payment equaling $1000. you will find more information about it shown on your Account Dashboard on our site when you are signed in https://www.canadianbitcoins.com/account.php. You will see there is a 24 hour maximum you can buy at a time.

Some of you will notice that you have already met the requirements to use these options. We hope this new option will be appealing to our Clients and it works to their benefit.

Thank you
The Canadian Bitcoins Team

... if you're not willing to get off your ass and venture away from your computer chair in your parents basement, you probably shouldn't be in the Securities forum. ...

Whoa James!  The "mom's basement" critique has been perfected in the rarefied would of international high finance Shocked
Now i see your power level is over 9000 -- ur all-pro Smiley

Since you're pitching this thing on the interwebs, home to lowly basement dwellers, might it not be a be more convenient to offer verifiable names & business records, or is a trip to Panama the best you can offer?
Can i get an addy from you, or should i just ring you once i get through customs?

Also, is tomorrow a good time to stop by?  I'll be en route to Nigeria, where a prince has invited me to verify his legitimacy.
This is all so new and exciting for me!

21 Concourse Gate. Unit 13. Ottawa, ON. K2E7S4. Feel free to stop by the old Havelock Office in Canada and say hi.  The new owners i believe have already extended that invitation to you at the new Panama office.

LOLZ!!!  James, this is your 60 75 MILLION DOLLAR operation?  Is it a *safe neighborhood*? Cheesy


Not _my_ operation anymore, but yes the location is very safe. Not sure what you think you can tell from a google street view.

I've been trying very hard to stay out of this, umm, "discussion", but just wanted to chime in... no, this is not troll food, so please, trolls, pay no attention.

You've all trusted Havelock Investments for over a year, you could come to our office and talk with us, you could pick up the phone and call us.. and _many_ of you did.  When the Panama Fund acquired Havelock Investments from the original owners (myself and my business partner), we made sure to vette the purchaser (who we already had a pre-existing business relationship with) and required them to have contact information available.  One of the reasons you trusted Havelock to begin with was because we were a bricks and mortar office with a real phone number at our real address manned by real people.  The same continues to apply today, whether its in Canada or Panama makes no difference.   If  you have doubt, please, call, visit the office, check out the new owners in "real life"... if you're not willing to get off your ass and venture away from your computer chair in your parents basement, you probably shouldn't be in the Securities forum.   Taking part in securities (virtual or not) always requires you to do your own due diligence... actual due diligence. not just a few google searches.

What should I do in case of having Havelock account but registered at other mail address than used at BTCTC?

Garrett did not respond to my emails for over a week, so I have to ask here.

Simplest and quickest - create new account with btctc email address, and transfer shares to your other user

A quick search for your US number results in http://scamadvocates.com/1442-Secure-Holding-Investments.html "Secure Holding Investments Scam."

Awesome.


Quite an unfortunate randomly assigned phone number.  This is how all telecom providers work, they have a "pool" of numbers that they can recycle and give out to other clients after set periods of time.  Traditionally the turnover was a lot slower, but these days with VOIP, its easy to activate/remove toll free numbers with the click of a button and the providers end up turning over their pool more frequently.

Does it just outbid you by 1 satoshi or something?

This is why the acceptable number of bots to have running are 0 or 2+.  Someone should run another one =)

Agreed Smiley if someone's bot is annoying you, you should write a bot to annoy their bot.  bot wars!

We encourage bots (thats why we released our API) as it (theoretically) adds liquidity.

BIG REQUEST!!!!!

Can you pleeeeeease add a calculator to the trading platform.

It is such a simple necessity, when buying or selling you put in shares and the price and it tells you the total. So Simple.

I don't want to have to click 'Place Buy Order' to see the total first. Then have to cancel and go back and do it again.

Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease!

Please.

Thanks

Consider it added to my TODO list!

Guys, don't you want implement some "locked withdrawal wallet" or "linked wallet" option like btct had? Or something like that?

Because now the only thing that ensure connection between me and my shares is email address.

This. HI appears to be lacking core security features which makes me wary of doing any trading there.

E.g. options to require auth to withdraw, buy and sell. Locked btc addres to withdraw to. Btc address to associate shares with. Last I checked I didn't see any of those (correct me if I'm wrong).

These are all planned for the near-future, and were indeed planned many months ago, then everything got put on hold pending the unknown legal situation, which is now resolved.  Now that The Panama Fund has taken over the day-to-day operations and brought in the much needed legal team and is providing all the required licensing, we can get back to moving development forward!

hey guys whats wrong with your API? ive been testing an application that polls your site so that I can track asset movements.

I use an adaptive algorithm that polls the ticker data no less than once every ten seconds.
for inactive stocks it can poll as slowly as once every 10 minutes.


anyways as far as I can remember there were no polling frequency limits when I last read the API doco  (most sites like Gox have a limit of 10 seconds)

my IP address has now been banned by havelock... so I cant check the API documentation, cant report tickers, cant trade stocks..

if I had an S$$$ tonne of money tied up on your exchange I would be majory pissed by now..


no warnings, no details on polling limits, no info on the ban page..

what gives?


Cheers...

It only firewalls on FAILED LOGIN ATTEMPTS... so... either you failed logging in one too many times, or you somehow pissed cloudflare off and they forced a captcha on you.  The firewall applied on failed logins automatically clears after a short period.

It won't load for me either.  Fingers still crossed, I don't know if they will uncross once it's time. May be stuck like this.

Loading fine for me here... backend servers look fine too.. maybe a temporary cloudflare glitch... they've had more and more of those recently... getting very frustrating...
