The bags are being printed and I should have them next week, ready to fill with stuff!

And in the next few days, I should have stuff from sponsors!

Since you're, in your own words, "not very smart about this type of crap," you could paste your address here to have its balance independently verified.

Are you mocking me, or making a serious request?
I think he means it. Post your address here and we could take a look exactly what happened. Include any information you have on that person or entity so we can see if what can be done.

Yes, I was serious. I've seen recent bitcoin converts misunderstand how blockexplorer works.

Just like your cash transactions, it's up to you to record and report them.

1 @ .8

.8? This wouldn't be enough to get in even if prices not evenly divisible by 0.5 were allowed.

Current state:
Slots BTC Person
5 3 wm-center.com
3 2.5 edd
okay fine 1 @ .5

There are eight slots up for auction. I currently have the highest bid for three of them at 2.5 BTC each and wm-center has the highest bid for five at 3 BTC each.

You would have to bid at least 3 BTC to claim one of the spots I currently have.

The wikis are pretty vague. I bet you can't even quote the proper answer directly.

We could all send emails saying, "I wish to give to your worthy cause and I don't wish for any of my donation to go to a third party like PayPal, but I couldn't find your bitcoin address anywhere."

Good idea. Rassah, what's the address?

Not my idea. That was Edd. Not sure if doing that right now would be a good idea, since it'll look like spamming.

This is probably a good habit for all of us to get into whenever coming across a worthwhile charity.

I think you'll get a lot fewer people participating when they have to put the money in themselves though.  I know I wouldn't.  It's not that I don't want to see Bitcoin expand, it's that I don't want to be at a net loss for doing so.  And I think a lot of other people are as... stingy... as I am in that regard.

If it can be done for free, there will be a lot more people participating.

How about a combination of both? You can enter in a serial number, fund it yourself, and release it into the wild or you can enter it and wait for the site admin to fund it.
1091  Economy / Lending / Re: Looking for a Loan on: March 02, 2012, 12:27:57 AM
Haven't tried this before but seems like its legit and works out for most people, anyway i want to
lend 17 bitcoins so i can buy a ticket to a local music festival, i can repay up to around 20 bitcoins on the 11/12th of march
if this is satisfactory, maybe be able to go higher but not sure.

37 posts is rather meager ...

What else do you have to demonstrate your trustworthiness ?

Like I said I recognize this, I would be willing to demonstrate my trustworthiness but I dont know a good way of doing
this besides having many successful trades which i wont be able to preform before I need the money but any other
way you can think of I would be happy to oblige

Very simple: meet in person with one of the lenders on these forums, show
some form of picture id and your latest phone bill so we know where you live.



Don't forget the photo of you with a shoe on your head.

^ But if identifying bill information is entered for the first time how would a site know it is valid?

Well, the bill would have to be registered by someone in order to assign bitcoins to it, even if it's the sie administrator.

I am sorry that I did not get back to you sooner. At this time, we are going to continue collecting donations as we always have. We appreciate the offer and information and if we need your services in the future, I will be sure to contact you. Thank you.

Guess not much more I can do with that one (replied with a, "Sorry to hear that. Thank you for letting us know.")

That sucks the shit out of a hobos ass! Well, where do we go from here?

We could all send emails saying, "I wish to give to your worthy cause and I don't wish for any of my donation to go to a third party like PayPal, but I couldn't find your bitcoin address anywhere."

"Defacing" bills is against US law but it hasn't really been enforced: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Where%27s_George%3F#Controversy

I'm afraid blatantly encouraging individuals to do this would give the Secret Service a reason to prosecute bitcoiners, even if it's a flimsy one.

I still prefer keeping it very simple.

Person finds bill with URL, visits website, enters serial numbers, possibly wins BTC.
Person learns that even unmarked bills may unlock BTC.
Person visits site often to check bills, investigates the BTC market and becomes immersed in the bitcoin community.
Person becomes an advocate of bitcoin themselves and begins proselytizing and spreading the word with bills marked with the URL.

Contests over how many bills you've marked, how far they've traveled, etc should just be gravy.
Again though, how would you prevent people from making up serial numbers?

The first time a note is entered, it CANNOT give out BTC, or else people will just start making up serial numbers.

I believe Phinnaeus was on the right track:

I've started working on this site but I had a concern. Yesterday, I received some brand new bills from a convenience store and noticed the sequentiality (sequence-ness? sequence-nicity?) of the serial numbers.

If all you needed was the right serial number to unlock an account, how easy would it be to create a bot to do it? Would a captcha help?

I know you could write a code on the bill along with the url, but I was kinda excited about using even an unmarked bill as an advertisement for bitcoin.

No need to worry about a bot, for each dollar bill has plenty of built-in security measures that can be taken advantage of. http://onhech.blogspot.com/2010/03/dollar-for-your-thoughts.html



Simply have a field to insert the Series and Year & Plate Serial Number & Printing Position Number and Letter.

For the example I gave earlier in this thread:

Serial Number: K28849219E

Passwords to claim the bitcoins include:

Series and Year: 2003 A
Printing Position Number and Letter: A3
Plate Serial Number: FW A 165



Quote
Series and Year: 2003 A
Plate Serial Number: FW A 165
Printing Position Number and Letter: A3

Therefore, your site would recognize the password as 2003AFWA165A3.

I really need to get in contact with an owner of a store who uses bitcoin! heidijosboutique.com but cant access the website and they have no email.... Undecided

I believe that's elwar and his wife.
1096  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: March 2012 BitCon in San Antonio, Texas - News Thread on: March 01, 2012, 09:52:51 PM
I'd really like to justify attending, but it's hard to justify the cost if it's just a bunch of people sitting around a table chatting. 

What's the expected turn out?

Really hard to say. About a dozen have mentioned here that they will and 41 have indicated they will on the poll at the website. We might get a handful of curious locals but I'm really counting on getting a lot of people at SXSW interested.

Any news outlets lined up for the event?



I will soon be spamming every one who might possibly attend.

I'd still love to help in anyway I can.

Would you consider giving your presentation via Skype?
