Lo que yo creo que le hicieron a Ross fue que le maltratatron, lo torturaron y le amenazó a toda su familia, y por eso reveló la "contraseña" a los de Estados Unidos.
La "contraseña" es un private key, algo bastante largo y dificil de memorizar, y además, no lo puedes eligir tu mismo.

Es extraño que ningún medio haya informado nada al respecto de cómo ha podido el FBI "apropiarse" de la clave privada de los bitcoins de Silk Road.

Más extraño es todavía que a nadie parezca interesarle.

A ver, es que es obvio, todos sabemos que le amenazaron y le torturaron. Ese es el modo que el FBI hace las cosas.

The actual solution would be to deny new connections once it has reached the limit it wants to. That way, there is no new hashpower. Their current policy is to send out messages and warnings, but that is useless.
Another option is to disconnect all miners, and only the ones that reconnect quickest will be able to stay. They can also increase fees to reduce hashrate.

Why would you want to know what the price is now because they could be worth a completely different amount in the future? You usually get around 0.4 for Snr Members.

It's just out of curiosity. Also, I have some pretty good trust.

That's more of a reason not to sell your account then as it could be used for nefarious purposes. I'd be careful what you say around here as you could lose that trust pretty quickly.

Again, I'm not going to sell it. It's merely out of curiosity. I have more money than I need and I won't sell it for nothing.

Outdated pricing structure still a possibility while both competition sites use clear "per hour" system.

We will not be adding this consumer trick to LR anytime soon.  Multi-pools and calculators and ROI calcs use BTC per Unit of Hash per day (BTC/Mhs/Day) etc.  So you can use pool-picker.eu, name a multi-pool, bitcoinwisdom, etc.  To determine your mining profits as B/MH/Day.    The hourly pricing is a trick to confuse people by selling something using a pricing system not shared by the rest of the market.  

Hour hourly prices are available on the hire page for anyone who allows 1 hour rentals.    

If I'm wrong from a consumer view let me know but I get this from our customers who like to be able to see what their pool/mining pays out per hashing unit per day.

I think you got it. Most customers calculate how much they earn per day, and then they compare rigs to see if they are profitable. If you do it per hour, the customer would have to multiply it by 24, and that's a lot of hassle for them.
We might as well have a vote for everything, since it should represent opinions better.

miaviator: You could be true, yes. Seems to me that you are implying with your understanding that most customers rent for full days.
But what normally happens is that providers set their price to (live=known="NiceHash") market profitability plus some margin but only for the longest period. Shorter periods have waaaaay off prices. I mean five times more or similar. Those rents will happen very rare on today markets. Especially because short term customers can easily find their provider on competition.
(And as rent history is gone from the site, I can not prove myself, but this is my feeling.)

What you are really doing is nothing else but selecting customers from your "universe" (total possible customers looking for providers) who are patient to click through Hire buttons multiple times and can write down lot of data and then handle complex comparisons on paper or Excel or in head.
My guess is that this is a limited number of customer set.

I was rented 5 times yesterday on MRR and maximized my earnings with timed pricing decisions. I was not rented longer than 12 hours for the last one week at least, but still made a profit.

You are taking this the wrong way.  But I want to know what we could do make the calculation part easier.  What would the display the page or the filter look like?   

What I'm saying is that ROI is calculated in BTC/MH/Day by all major sites.   Changing to BTC per MH per Hour would a huge calculation to determining ROI.  We are not trying to hide our providers prices.   

And we offer reduced fees and bonuses to providers who reduce prices to their pool payouts + a reasonable margin! 

You show me a way we can make the site show you the data you want without losing the BTC/MH/DAY price display and I'll start working on it.

I got you.
BTC/MH/Day data presentation must stay. No question about it! Never said against it. Must have misunderstood somewhere back.

Reasonable pricing by providers for short term is a must if you want to compete on today market.
That's all.

The simplest way to reach this would be to strongly emphasize providers using flat pricing schemes.
Strongly means strongly.

I don't agree. I price my rigs reasonably, but I refuse for someone forcing me to do so. It's a free market, everyone is open to price their rigs to what they want.

Seems like scammers are trying everything they can to phish for bitcoins these days. Simply follow the golden rule:
Don't click on links from people you don't know.

Si tienes tus claves privadas en papel, te lo pueden confiscar. Si alguna vez has tenido  tu clave privada en un PC que no has formateado a bajo nivel, te lo pueden confiscar.

Aquellos que vayan a confiscar tus bitcoins no pueden saber si las claves privadas en un papel son tuyas o de un familiar o de un vecino, pero si están en una finca de tu propiedad, y no eres capaz de demostrar lo contrario, considerarán la peor opción para tus intereses.

Si los bitcoins están guardados en una dirección con multifirma en el que las claves están distribuidas entre varias personas, seguramente tendrás que demostrar que has pagado impuesto de donaciones. Si no lo has hecho, tendrás que hacer frente a la multa correspondiente. Posteriormente serán confiscados si se cumplen las mismas condiciones del párrafo anterior.

Ya, pero si tienes tus claves privadas en papel, encriptadas con BIP38, no pueden hacer nada, ni siquiera ver cuanto BTC tienes.

Out of curiosity, can you quote me a price for my acc? I won't sell it, but just interested, if anytime in the future I go broke and desperately need money (I doubt it will happen though).
1011  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Trust Will Kill Bitcoin on: July 17, 2014, 03:15:55 PM
There is no need to trust anyone with bitcoin and that is one of it's most important features. In fact in the early days I think I remember Satoshi referring to his idea as "trust-less cash" rather than bitcoin.

Any additional layers in the bitcoin economy that rely on trust are unnecessary. And that is why I think this article has it wrong. I would not use bitcoin if it required trust. This website may not understand my position as their business (gold sales) relies heavily on trust. When I buy bulk gold I have to go through a whole process of having the gold assayed and tested. When a bitcoin arrives in my wallet the transaction is over and I can be confident that it is authentic. Trust is not wanted or needed in bitcoin. 

Again, you still have to trust the miners and the network that no one has 51% hashrate to double spend and invalidate that transaction.
1012  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Mining (Altcoins) / Re: Massive amount of hashpower on: July 17, 2014, 03:14:55 PM
There's also Leaserig, it's pretty good too. Or you could privately contact something like genesismining to ask for a huge short contract.
1013  Economy / Economics / Re: Bitcoin backed paper money (idea) on: July 17, 2014, 03:13:42 PM
But why back it with fiat, and not gold? Fiat is worthless and ever-inflating, and that Brock Pierce thing already made a realcoin that is backed by US dollars.

I know there's some coin backed by dollar.

I am not saying that bitcoin should be backed by gold. I am saying that dollar should be backed by bitcoin (to make it sound simple for you).

Oh okay, sorry, I misunderstood.
Well, why make fiat backed by Bitcoin when we can use Bitcoin easily, quickly and instantly?

That's a good question. I'd ask it myself too Cheesy

I think it would solve the anonymity problem that naturally comes with the direct use of Bitcoin itself. Also, it might be easier to use cash sometimes than grabbing for a smartphone and relying on the Internet.

I think it would be a lot easier if we implement a sharedcoin/darksend function properly. You can't just toss physical bitcoins over the globe instantly.
Grabbing a smartphone, scanning a code, hitting "pay" is a lot easier than getting out a wallet, fiddle with bits of paper, watch a cashier check its validity and count it and then issue change.
1014  Bitcoin / Mining / Re: S1 Miners, Chip heat and sufficent heat displacement. on: July 17, 2014, 03:11:54 PM
You should mention plenty of cooling and airflow. If it's necessary, get some thermal paste or pads, stick them onto the chips and stick a heatsink on it. That's a bit extreme, but if needed, do it.
1015  Economy / Economics / Re: Dumping coin - do exchanges hold coin? on: July 17, 2014, 03:10:14 PM
Exchange has no need to have bitcoins at all, they just need guys that hold bitcoins and guys that hold $ or FIAT in other words. You have to understand that every coin is exchanged for FIAT and therefore exchange needs no money at all, not FIAT , not Bitcoins.

Exchanges need reserves to be able to run when errors occur.   Just like any other business errors occur...wrong amounts are sometimes sent, certain transactions don't go through correctly, etc.   If there are literally 0 reserves, there is 0 room for error

Seriously? Loads of people buy bitcoin, I know many people that constantly buy bitcoin. If no one buys and all coins are turned into fiat, Bitcoin would be at $0 right now.
1016  Economy / Economics / Re: Spain confiscates 0.03% of all bank deposits. on: July 17, 2014, 03:07:57 PM
How long before this happens in the US?

I feel like we wouldn't let this happen as easily, there would be a public outrage. But then again, we let NSA happen. So maybe not.
I don't think this could happen in the US. The FDIC insures all bank deposits up to $250,000 per depositor per institution. The bank would have to fail first and after that it could only apply to deposits above the above limits.

Banks already pay the FDIC an insurance premium based on how much money is on deposit at their bank. 
I doubt that would make any difference.  As you pointed out, FDIC insurance pays out when banks fail.  I doubt it covers government theft. Wink  Besides, even if FDIC insurance would somehow cover it right now, I'm sure they'd find a loophole or change the laws so it won't.

In the US they'd just print 0.03% more dollars. Lot less likely to cause public uproar.
Not that I want the government to do that, but I'd greatly prefer that to messing with bank deposits.

Our government doesn't even have any money, so no, there is no bank insurance here lol.
1017  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: *** GHash.IO mining pool official page *** on: July 17, 2014, 03:04:50 PM
Why not temporarily increase fees at the pool until the pool has a more reasonable hashrate?

Slowly increase the fee until the pool hashrate falls enough to only be 30% of the network, or something like that.

I support this idea.

Also, deny new connections or even disconnect existing ones.
My miners all have failovers, drop my connection for instance, and I'll simply be mining on a different pool.

Maybe, start issuing warnings at 39%, denying new connections at 40%, dropping connections at 41%

Dropping connections wouldn't be fair, simply denying new connections yes. Or what they could do is disconnect everyone, and once everyone starts to reconnect, deny new connections once it reaches 39.99%

If you're so worried about trust, couldn't you use allcrypt or localbitcoins, or anything similar?

LocalBitcoin relies heavily on trust. You have to trust LocalBitcoins, a third party, and the other guy, which is even worse than direct p2p transactions.
