Bombers? You meant firemen? Are you spanish/catalonian?

Amazing client and amazing API. I just love how simple and lightweight it is.

Olvídate de la minería, salvo que estés dispuesto a comprar ASICs.

O que, como yo, lo hagas por diversión y no por beneficio Tongue A mi parecer es interesante porque aprendes cosas que no aprenderías si fueras simplemente usuario de la moneda.

En cualquier caso, los parámetros que Satoshi fijó de forma más o menos arbitraria podrían ser mejorables en teoría

En teoría y en la práctica. Por ejemplo: Bitcoin nunca podrá ser usado para pagar en mano por los 10 min/confirmación.

Es más fácil moverse a un blockchain alternativo que cambiar las reglas del juego para todos los mineros (aunque supongo que el efecto competencia hará a los mineros BTC despertar cuando la gente migre).

Igual que Yahoo! fue el pionero y al final derrocado por un competidor más joven (Google) a Bitcoin le ocurrirá lo mismo. No digo que Litecoin se la alternativa, pero no creo que Bitcoin vaya a ser la criptomoneda de facto a largo plazo.

He is returning JSON cause doesn't understand the specification, just like you.

I don't know his intentions but I'm very sure I know about JSON-RPC. What you seem to be unable (or worse, unwilling) to understand is the fact that RPC is not tied to a specific standard.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remote_procedure_call

"Many different (often incompatible) technologies can be used to implement the concept."

Why are you so focused in JSON-RPC? He didn't even mention it once.

It will likely break $100 tomorrow/tuesday, and $1000 by the end of the year.

I'm quoting you on this Wink
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: SLICk - Small Lightweight multIcoin Client on: April 01, 2013, 05:18:14 AM
Otherwise why is he returning JSON?

Because JSON is a handy object notation? I've done some RPC implementations which worked through JSON but weren't JSON-RPC compliant (mainly over RESTful services).

And you're right, it's Bitmessage the one that uses XML-RPC. Got both mixed up.

Did I make a mistake? How much is bitcoin expected to go up in a week? Month? I do need the money to pay bills ...

I wish I knew! The only way to know is... check it yourself in a week or a month.

No, I was going by http://json-rpc.org/wiki/specification and that specification wasn't found in the program, it was just JSON returns, no JSON-RPC returns.

Again, RPC is not JSON-RPC. If you can Call Procedures Remotely, it's RPC! Tongue

This could be scary but you said you have created a lightweight RPC server bitcoind, based on JPosse, I just looked at that code, it isn't RPC, it just returns JSON, this would not work with any existing software, kinda disappointment I could have really used this.

RPC just means Remote Procedure Call so he wasn't lieing. You've probably confused RPC with XML-RPC which is the standard used in Bitcoin-QT.

Sorry fractal5 but I specifically meant Bitcoin as a replacement for in-person money (cash). Though your statements are true, they are really not relevant (or I might have misinterpreted your post).

BTW, very interesting thread, views and ideas.
12  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: 10 minute confirmation - no in-person currency? on: April 01, 2013, 01:49:43 AM
If things are that bad, honest people won't mind waiting for a confirmation or two.

Or they'd rather buy with dollars and take the goddamn newspaper and packet of cigarettes in less than 10 minutes Wink
13  Other / Beginners & Help / Are free BTC sites essentially useless? on: April 01, 2013, 12:34:33 AM
You can get a few microBTC out of free ad-supported sites but if I understand Bitcoin correctly that creates LOTS of inputs for my future transactions which will make it have fees of 500mBTC per kb, rendering the reaping essentially useless.

Am I missing something? Should I just stay away of these sites?

I know the profit is poor even if no transaction fees were involved but it seemed like a great way to make some of my friends "mine" some microBTC.
14  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: 10 minute confirmation - no in-person currency? on: March 31, 2013, 11:42:23 PM
Personally, I would be comfortable with 0 confirmation transactions up to a thousand dollars.

Why would you? Some businesses live of high-volume low-value transactions (grocery stores, bookstores, etc.) I'm sure they care if you pay or not.

Unfortunately "I wouldn't care personally" is not a solution and this is a tough barrier for in-person merchants to adopt Bitcoin.

I wouldn't even trust a guy showing me his mobile-wallet. It could be just a facade that does nothing behind the curtains.
15  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: What's your Mhash/s? (Pissing contest here) on: March 31, 2013, 11:39:31 PM
80MHash/s with overclocked GTX480 (840MHz core). Just mining for fun and Bitcoin support, not much of a profit here.

I was going to buy AMD but I guess ASICs are going to disrupt the market so probably not worth it?
16  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Deposit and withdraw on: March 31, 2013, 11:31:05 PM
And you have to take into account exchange fees and that you probably have to pay taxes when selling BTC for government currency.
17  Other / Beginners & Help / 10 minute confirmation - no in-person currency? on: March 31, 2013, 11:28:37 PM
Block generation averages 10 minutes and difficulty is adjusted to match that speed, right? That means that buying thing in person will take at least 10 minutes to be confirmed once. Does that mean the Bitcoin will NEVER be an in-person currency? Am I missing something? Will the protocol possibly be modified for this purpose or Litecoin is there to fill the gap?
18  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Suddenly Unable to Mine on: March 31, 2013, 10:47:00 PM
Does ping or regular HTTP access to the pool mining address work?
19  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Bitcoins for Everybody on: March 31, 2013, 10:45:47 PM
Yep. I would do some tests like with like, paper wallets, brainwallets, etc: https://www.bitaddress.org

I'm glad the code isn't minified... and it's opensource! Great link, thanks.
20  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Same wallet, different addresses on: March 31, 2013, 10:36:17 PM
You could specify your datadir using "-datadir=<dir>" as a command line argument. IIRC there's no way to select exclusively the wallet file but the WHOLE data dir right now.

You can also try alternate clients.
