1  Economy / Web Wallets / Re: BTCC is conducting a survey on wallet apps: please help by filling one out! on: February 17, 2017, 10:41:13 PM
Sir, I don't remember having seen the domain bt.cc before, but you appear to have my cell phone number where you sent the above message. Could you explain where you got my number?

If that's the case, I would like to see the answer posted by the OP.


edit (screenshot removed), I logged in to on old account on a related domain: btcc.com and it knows my phone number. Seems legit.

Trump seem strong one but chance can be considered 50/50, better to wait few more weeks.
Just like I wait buying bitcoin as I expect the price to go up. It makes totally sense, or does it?

What do you mean for sell your bet @2.0? How to sell a bet??

For example at fairlay.com you can lay Hillary now, and when she loses terrain you back her. Another way to approach this: bet on Trump now and when the chances even out later, bet on Hillary then to cancel your Trump bet and take profit.

Why is this thread is on the gambling section? Huh

Good question, OP didn't want to discuss who should become president or who will become president, but whether or not the odds will go to 2.0 just before the elections.

Near the closure of the elections, the chances between the two candidates becomes 50/50. So odds for Clinton will become around 2.0. Currently her odds are between 1.4/1.5. Therefore, it's a good idea to bet against Clinton to become president. You can sell your bet near the elections at 2.0.

Hi,

I play on betfair for fun. Last november I deposited eur 50 in betfair and it's now almost gone. I no longer have a credit card, so does anyone know a way to deposit more? I'll pay you 10%, I was thinking about depositing eur 50 (>$50). I have btc.

I want to buy this for my girlfriend: http://www.shantipub.biz/cart/cart.php?target=product&sns_mode=featured_product&product_id=278&category_id=63
But I don't have a credit card or paypal. I can pay you $15.95 in btc + your profit (name your price). So you buy it at the website and send me the download link and I pay you with btc.

I have been thinking about a similar idea, but I failed to solve a certain mathematical issue. Now I'm wondering how you tackle that. Your paper doesn't seem to be so much technical and in github there doesn't seem to be a ledger. In bitcoin mining, a miner wants to find certain data such that sha(data) has a certain number of leading zeros. Now, suppose a miner finds such and tries to get that into the blockchain. Another miner may steal that and say "Hey, I found data and sha(data) has leading zeros". That doesn't work for bitcoin however, because the address that the mined coins are sent to is part of data. If the stealing miner now creates a data2 which is equal to data but with a different address, then sha(data2) generally does not have the leading zeros, so this won't work and the second miner can't steal.

This does not work for user-defined proof-of-work. My question is: How can a miner generate proof of work for a custom question, without another miner stealing that proof of work?

I have another concern. If I understand correctly, the miners execute Python code to solve computational questions. However especially for high-performance computing, this coin may be beat by a coin that does the same with C (which is quicker). What do you think about that?

I don't like the personal issues in this thread. There's a valid objection about the long-running scripts that makes logically sense. Let's discuss that concerning content. So far, I haven't seen a reason why it wouldn't limit ethereum.

TPTB interesting... it seems I came up with a similar objection against Ethtereum independently after you. I think we could have a  "computation-coin" as suggested in my OP(3), which does not have this issue. Do you have any thoughts on that? (Ignoring issues that all coins have?). The main issue with this computation coin of course is how to prevent someone from stealing a solution. That needs cyprography more advanced than bitcoin, if even possible.

I was thinking along these lines.

1. Someone posts a checking algorithm to quickly check any possible solution for a problem he has (e.g. a SAT instance).
2. He adds a public key; solutions need to be encrypted with it.
3. Somehow it must be possible for everyone to check that an encrypted solution is correct (unless there's a pre-hash collision, in which case someone who finds that can falsely state he has a solution and get the coins. There's nothing to do about that, but it might not be a big issue, because finding the solution should be easier than finding a prehash).
4. The poster of (1) can decrypt the solution using his private key.

Then we're facing (3) and we also still need to add that the address of the solver should be posted and be in the encryption (otherwise they can still steal the encrypted solution).

You don't trust your own government but now you want to give them the right to kill people?

Isn't there a way to do an x out of y signature including some of the contestants, to make sure the admin can't run away with the money?
