1  Bitcoin / Press / Re: [2015-06-18] Metro: Could Greece take bitcoin as its official currency? on: June 21, 2015, 01:04:03 PM
Bitcoin is a currency for the people, and as such, exactly opposed to the liking of the governments.

So, no government will adopt bitcoin by his choice, ever.

BitGold announces acquistion of GoldMoney

Anybody knows if this acquisition will enable to move gold between goldmoney and bitgold and/or buying/selling bitcoins for gold?

Blockstream recruiting more brainpower to work on sidechains. Impressive addition

Wow, I listened to his talk about the idea to scale bitcoin and that guy seems to really get it.

Great addiction for the blockstream team!

A very nice article about bitcoin and gold virtues if (when?) the dollar collapses:

When the Dollar Collapses, which is better Money, Gold or Bitcoin?
6  Bitcoin / Press / 2015-03-16 "deep web" a mainstream movie about Bitcoin,Silk Road & Ross Ulbricht on: March 16, 2015, 08:34:14 AM
www.deepwebthemovie.com
Narrated by Keanu Reeves

Deep Web gives the inside story of one of the the most important and riveting digital crime sagas of the century -- the arrest of Ross William Ulbricht, the convicted 30-year-old entrepreneur accused to be 'Dread Pirate Roberts,' creator and operator of online black market Silk Road. The film explores how the brightest minds and thought leaders behind the Deep Web and Bitcoin are now caught in the crosshairs of the battle for control of a future inextricably linked to technology, with our digital rights hanging in the balance.

In addition to being the only film with exclusive access to the Ulbricht family, Deep Web features the core architects of the Deep Web; anarchistic cryptographers who developed the Deep Web’s tools for the military in the early 1990s; the dissident journalists and whistleblowers who immediately sought refuge in this seemingly secure environment; and the figures behind the rise of Silk Road, which combined the security of the Deep Web with the anonymity of cryptocurrency.


From Reddit:
I was blown away. They interview Andy Greenberg, Amir Taaki, Cody Wilson, and extensively featured the Ulbricht family. They covered the cypherpunks, mentioned austrian economics, Mises, and anarcho-capitalism multiple times. They interviewed the head of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. They gave a very accurate and largely favorable explanation of Bitcoin.

The focus of the film was basically the history of the Silk Road, the bust, and how unfair the government's trial of Ross was.

They even mentioned OpenBazaar (I almost dropped out of my seat).

Afterwards, they brought the director Alex Winters on stage, along with Lyn Ulbricht, Cody Wilson, Andy Greenberg and a few others. They talked and had a Q&A for ~20 minutes. Obviously, it was extremely positive towards Ulbricht's position and strongly attacked the trial.

This wasn't a Bitcoin conference or a libertarian gathering, this was a major film premiere at SXSW. It was a massive theater (easily more than 500 people) and standing room only, I had to wait in line for a half hour for a ticket.

I still can't believe what I saw. Amazing. Everyone needs to see this film.

Non mi quadra:
Quote
Example of double-SHA-256 encoding of string "hello":

hello
2cf24dba5fb0a30e26e83b2ac5b9e29e1b161e5c1fa7425e73043362938b9824 (first round of sha-256)
9595c9df90075148eb06860365df33584b75bff782a510c6cd4883a419833d50 (second round of sha-256)
A me il secondo hash viene:
d7914fe546b684688bb95f4f888a92dfc680603a75f23eb823658031fff766d9 (sembra + corto ma dovrebbe avere 64 caratteri pure lui) comunque e' differente. L0ho calcolato sia con sha256sum da linea di comando che con una estensione per libre (open) office. In entrambi i casi ottengo lo stesso risultato differente da quello della pagina ...

Il secondo passaggio va fatto sui byte del primo risultato, non sulla sua rappresentazione esadecimale, che è quello che fai tu se usi sha256sum.
Come spiegato qui, se usi un tool che produce output binario potrai verificare che il risultato è corretto:

Code:
echo -n hello |openssl dgst -sha256 -binary |openssl dgst -sha256

La traduzione italiana di un articolo molto interessante che parla della nascita della Federal Reserve:

Bitcoin segna l'inizio della fine di 100 anni di schiavitù

Lettura consigliatissima.

Grazie tra gli altri ad AlexRossi per l'aiuto nella traduzione.

"A'hoi miners, come va? Domani PROMESSO pagheremo tutti gli arretrati e per scusarci regaleremo 1000000 Doge a chi comprerà un contratto Expert.
Siamo veramente delusi dalle accuse di scam che ci sono state rivolte, a dimostrazione della nostra lealtà vorremmo ricordare che stiamo distribuendo una carta Mastercard con la quale riusciremo ad incularvi anche gli ultimi risparmi.

Sperando sia sufficiente e abbastanza confortante vi ringraziamo per la fiducia"

Cointellect è un ottimo esempio per capire come lavora uno schema di Ponzi.

Non solo le dinamiche dell'azienda, ma delle persone stesse che, difendendola in buona fede, permettono che possa aumentare il giro di persone truffate.

cointellect has stopped paying and the team stopped responding to inquiries.

They flew away with all the cash the people gave them, as with any other Ponzi scheme.

Really? Could you please explain how those 100'000 people get more "freedom from oppresive governments" by using bitcoin?  Is "freedom"  just evading taxes, or buying illegal drugs, weapons, child porn -- or is there something else?

Claim: in its 6 years of existence, bitcoin has caused 1000x more damage than benefits to the world.

Bitcoin has given me hope to be one day free from the ideas that governs your way of thinking.

Thanks for continually remind me it with every post you make.

Sidechains irrelevant, Bitcoin UP.

this could very well be true.

in that case, why change anything?
And what if the rally is being fueled by the understanding of sidechains, thanks to the debate of this thread? ;-)

"Counterparty announced that its developers have successfully ported the Ethereum Project’s programming language over to the Counterparty platform, enabling users to save and execute Turing Complete Ethereum code on the Bitcoin blockchain. With this new development, Counterparty makes it possible to execute Ethereum smart contracts on the more secure Bitcoin blockchain."

How will this affect Ethereum? Will the Counterparty-Ethereum platform be slow? Can it be scalable? Anyone have any thoughts?

https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/counterparty-recreates-ethereum-bitcoin/
That simply means that the people that bought ether have thrown away their money.

Now ethereum can work on top of counterparty and tomorrow, if ethereum still exists and useful, will be implemented as a two way pegged bitcoin sidechain.
