Are you promoting this anywhere other than this forum? I followed your twitter account but it only has one tweet and it directs people here.

Not much. We reached out to a few businesses that accept bitcoins but they did not respond.

No website or page with info for non-bitcointalk members?

I'm sending you a PM. I'll be happy to help promote this where I can and I trust OgNasty's judgement, but if I'm going to vouch for you myself, I'll need a little direct confirmation that you are legit. I hope you don't take offense but I've been burned before.

MrDove is an acronym for a new charity event and a poke at the dovish behavior of the Federal Reserve bank.

Money
Raining
Down
Over
Vagrant
Environments

MrDove's intent is to donate money to the homeless in a unique and uplifting way that encourages others to do positive things. The MrDove team will produce a serious yet entertaining video with the hopes of inspiring others to participate in similar events. All donated bitcoins will be converted to dollars and dropped from a DJI built drone over an area of poverty-stricken Americans. The event will be recorded by several HD cameras and a link to the YouTube video will be tweeted from @MrDoveMoneyDrop.

Please consider making a donation to the designated escrow account.

 Cool


That's pretty impressive for only a year and a half of "real" time. I only have 76 days and I've been here almost four years.

SCAM WARNING. Be very careful if you want to use Mycelium like a tool to sell and trade. Its full of scamers. Encountered 3 in two days. Whoever will try to persuade you to do the PayPal trade is scamer. Only trade with people who do actually want to meet. Got myself caught once. Be extra cautious when using it. It really needs multi signature if its to be used in future..

As the name implies it's for local trading, i.e. meet up. PayPal and Bitcoin have never mixed. Multisig will not fix the PayPal problem.

I get requests every once in a while from users nowhere near my location. I always point out that the feature is meant for local trades and that I'd be happy to trade the next time they are in my vicinity and can meet in person.

If you are the seller, up front say, "don't tell me what you are using these for and there won't be any problems".  It isn't that hard. 

That would sound very suspicious and may even be taken as admitting that you're willing to help criminals as long as you don't assume any risk yourself.

A better tactic is just to avoid dealing with anyone giving you reason to believe they are involved in criminal activities or a cop trying to entrap you.
26  Bitcoin / Meetups / San Antonio Bitcoin Meetup and the Bitcoin Syndicate on: March 02, 2015, 05:20:55 PM
Six months before I started the latest iteration of the San Antonio Bitcoin Meetup, the Bitcoin Syndicate launched in our area to promote, trade, and discuss Bitcoin. Unfortunately, actual meetups for this group were rare. Recently, the Organizer and co-Organizer stepped down and the group was in danger of being taken off meetup.com. I have some ideas about joining forces and coordinating our efforts so I've stepped in as Organizer of this group, as well.

Please attend our next meetup, if your in the area, to discuss next steps: http://www.meetup.com/San-Antonio-Bitcoin/events/220807053/

We'll discuss other crypto stuff, too, of course.

Sending you a PM, roslin. For future reference, I'm happy to help in any way I can with this project and I have some contacts in the community when a job falls outside my skill set.

I happened to be looking at some old coffee orders and came across one from Hal back at the beginning of 2012. Thanks again, Hal, for encouraging me to do my part for the Bitcoin economy. You will be missed.

Are these meetups still active? How many people attend? I may drop by this week Cheesy

It varies. Most of the time, there's 6 to 8 of us.

Would be more but I haven't been online much lately.

Is there any works underway to make the private keys easier to remember?

Anything that would make private keys shorter or less random would also make them easier to crack.
34  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Isn't the safest way to store bitcoin Is to store it on the blockchain? on: September 06, 2014, 12:14:22 AM
I've noticed that this is one of the harder concepts to grasp - no one really "possesses" a bitcoin, all you really possess is the key that controls it.
35  Economy / Goods / Re: What's going on at Bitcoin General Store? Panic Sale! on: September 04, 2014, 02:34:32 AM

In response to this, we're having a Panic Sale until the end of September. Simply enter the coupon code SELLSELLSELL upon checkout and get 10% off our already attractive prices!

36  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Who actually spend bitcoins ? and for what ? on: September 02, 2014, 02:39:32 PM
I read a lot here and there about Crypto as currencies, bitcoin as currency and how it might change the way people do business etc... I see a lot of great innovations recently like nxt, qtl, stealth coins and so on...

But i have the feeling people are holding to their coins, or trading them in hope for profit, and dont actually consider buying anything with it, not to mention it's really hard to get some coins today.
No one wants to be the guy who spent $1 000 000 on a slice of pizza.

How do you think bitcoin & cryptos will bring value to traditional /e-commerce, how can it grow mainstream if evryone holds in hope for the 100000$ bitcoin ?
What do you think people would be ready to risk spending their bitcoins for ?




I've been spending (and earning) bitcoins since 2011. The most bitcoins I've spent on a single purchase was a domain name for $300 when they were about $2 each. Which means I'm already the guy who spent 150 BTC (currently worth over $71,000) for a domain name that I don't even use.

I may be Bitcoin poor (relatively speaking), but I'm one of the Bitcoin economy's most active supporters.
37  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: RIP Hal Finney on: August 28, 2014, 10:25:13 PM
The world was made a better place thanks to Hal Finney's efforts.

I hope his family knows how much this community appreciates him.

Will they have a service even if he is being preserved?

If so, an address to send flowers would be good.

this

May I suggest a donation in honor of Hal?
38  Bitcoin / Meetups / Re: San Antonio Bitcoin Meetup on: August 28, 2014, 03:06:40 PM
Tonight promises to be our biggest yet! http://www.meetup.com/San-Antonio-Bitcoin/events/199750392/

Don't forget, we'll be at a new venue.
39  Economy / Services / Re: Bitcoin 100: Developed Specifically for Non-Profits on: August 26, 2014, 11:00:37 PM
Thanks for the clarification Edd... one more question if you don't mind...

is there anywhere else where discussions between the people behind Bitcoin 100 communicate or is it all done through here?

We have been known to communicate through PMs and in person when we happen to attend the same conferences, but I'd say 99% of it is hashed out in this thread.

That's another reason we encourage others to speak up here - we (and by "we", I mean "Rassah") could use some help vetting charities and making these tough decisions.
40  Economy / Services / Re: Bitcoin 100: Developed Specifically for Non-Profits on: August 26, 2014, 10:52:15 PM
Admitting now I haven't read all 100 pages of this but if someone could clarify this would be great:

1) if I contact a charity who I think would benefit from the BTC and they agree to accept BTC donations and implement it, then I request here for the 1 BTC, since its already been implemented then the charity is invalid... or

2) since I have contacted the charity and convinced them to accept BTC they would be valid (provided all other preconditions are met).


There are many great charities I know and frankly would appreciate these funds that are sitting dormant...

but I want to be sure on whether its 1) or 2)... I am assuming 2) is the case.

2) is correct.

The issue we're running into is that Bitcoin100 was created to promote Bitcoin by convincing charities to begin accepting BTC denominated donations. Now, some charities are hearing about Bitcoin, implementing a method to receive BTC donations and then, some time later coming to Bitcoin100 and saying, "We accept bitcoins." There is no hard and fast rule concerning how much time needs to elapse before an organization falls out of the running. We could easily give away the rest of the funds to NPOs that have jumped on the Bitcoin bandwagon but it defeats the original purpose of the Bitcoin100 - to promote Bitcoin.

Add to that the fact that we're all being pulled in multiple directions with other projects, and you get a backlog like we have now.
