421  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: bitaddress generated existing address? how to spend [1 BTC BOUNTY] on: June 04, 2013, 10:29:00 AM
Some day, you'll lose your private keys. Some random exploit, virus, perhaps somebody ripping you off; whatever the case, you'll come back to this forum demanding justice and doing everything you can to find the robber, completely outraged. How dare they stealing my coins you'll think. When that happens, I'll link you to this thread and remind you how you once were the robber who stole 50 BTC. Have a good day Wink

Oh wait, dude he didn't stole money from someone.
He's lucky that he got 50 bitcoin in a new generated wallet and he's innocent that's why he posted address here, otherwise he can just ask for import key help and get away. You guys have never even knew about this.

So stop being a prick and let him enjoy his money. If these bitcoin belongs to someone else, he could have spent them, instead of letting them sit in his wallet from many years.

He hasn't stolen the money yet. I sincerely doubt he actually has the private key to this address.

BTW, how can you possibly say four years = "many years"? I have stuff in my fridge older than that.

I have a hard time letting go of projects, especially one that I've invested as much time and effort into as The Bitcoin List. I've finally come to terms, however, with the fact that it requires more TLC than I can spare and I require more BTC for other projects.  Cry

This is NOT a scam. I got NOTHING back which is what i EXPECTED! Expected results = not a scam.

If OP makes good on his claim = no scam.
If OP keeps BTC and has no intention of following through = scam.
If no one sends any BTC and, consequently, no one loses BTC = attempted scam.


I was suspicious of Pirate from the beginning and the fallout from his scheme was about what I expected. Does that mean he didn't scam?

Sent 3 btc, when will i get it back?
do you need my wallet?

You should be getting 6 BTC back on Thursday. He won't need your wallet, he wrote a script.

sweet, looking forward to it.

OP just registered today and this is his only post. Why does his script wait until Thursday evening to send payments? Couldn't it just as easily send double the deposit after X confirmations? And where is the evidence that he has any BTC, let alone 2500?

Please don't send any bitcoins to this person. If he truly wants to "give back" he can donate his BTC to Bitcoin100: 1BTC1oo1J3MEt5SFj74ZBcF2Mk97Aah4ac

Also, can someone please review this?
Quote
Bitcoin100 is an organization of over 100 bitcoin users, who have pledged to collectively donate $1000 to any charitable organization that agrees to accept Bitcoin donations. Bitcoin100 seeks to entice non-profits to accept bitcoin donations alongside their other donation methods, and encourages anyone [change "anyone" to "everyone"] to reach out to their choice of charity ["charity of choice" scans better IMO], pledging to donate regardless of whether the charityís decision to accept bitcoins was due to Bitcoin100ís activities or due to persuasions of other third parties. On Sunday [June 2nd, 2013], Bitcoin100 treasurer Dmitry (Rassah) reported the organization has over 300 bitcoins in assets, ready to be donated.

Looks good to me. My only suggested edits are in red above but I think it's adequate even without them.

nnyld, ScaryKubiak, pluh, r3wt (and others) -

I have said before that although we have done literally everything we can think of to make our site as absolutely secure as possible, we know that there is always a possibility of any site being hacked...even the White House's site has been hacked in the past.

The Paper Vaults that The Bank of Bitcoin allows its Members to create CANNOT be hacked.  They are literally just as secure as any paper wallet.  I have stated this so many times, in so many ways, that I am reminded of the scene in "The Shawshank Redemption" where the lead character called the warden "obtuse" for seeming to deliberately misunderstand what he was being told.

Even if our site were hacked, any Bitcoins in your Paper Vault would be absolutely safe.  This is quite unique for an online Bitcoin Service: when other online services are hacked your Private Keys and Bitcoins are gone; with us, it would be an inconvenience, but the Bitcoins and Private Keys in your Paper Vaults would remain safe.

Furthermore, to combat the possibility of the injection of malicious code into the client-side javascript used to manipulate your Paper Vaults we have described a two- or three-minute method to check that our code has not been altered (either by a hacker or otherwise).

It should be obvious that we take security VERY seriously, and have created an online Bitcoin service which handles that security by putting YOUR Private Keys and YOUR Bitcoins in YOUR hands, and yet STILL allowing you to send your Bitcoins from any javascript-enabled Internet-connected device.  This is a very unique, valuable and secure service - and I am proud of what we have accomplished.


I really wasn't going to chime in on this thread again. But It's been sitting there taunting me all day.

The ironic thing is: we aren't the ones being obtuse. We'we pointing out legitimate points of weakness and flaws in your concept. We also have no doubt that you "take security VERY seriously" but that doesn't make you any good at securing your site. At best your inept at worst your attempting to pull something.

~

If I were malicious - I might do something exactly like what you've done... including making multiple mdm5 documents on how to 'verify' the authenticity of the paper wallet generation code. Then I'd set my server up to monitor get requests from the same clients. Whenever my software felt someone wasn't being diligent checking - it would then deliver altered code that would deliver a copy of the private key back to my server. Assuming that you could kick the can down the road for awhile with some less experienced users claiming your legitimacy... in a few years you'd have access to hundreds or thousands of cold storage wallets that you could then clean out for massive profit. Total time invest - six to eight hours it would take to put together your website and 2 years of hosting fees.

~

One reason nobody is taking you seriously is because you aren't offering anything (except a bit more hassle) to do the same things we can do already using established software and services. There's no way for you ever make much of a profit offering 'clones' of other services. This means that you must have some other plan for how to make a bitcoin off the venture... otherwise why bother.

Another reason is when security issues and flaws in concept are pointed out you imply we're being obtuse... if you were legitimate you'd be trying to get our input on how to fix these issues instead.

~

When it comes to the bitcoin world there are a couple hundred thousand geeks and fiscal wizards (at least) who're more than willing to help you develop a good product or service for the fun of it... or simply for whatever it might add to the growth of bitcoin. My advice to you would be to start listening to us about the issues with your 'service'.



I'm willing to give BoB the benefit of the doubt and assume they really do believe that simply combining two existing services, a hot wallet and the ability to print paper wallets, is a viable business model. My problem is with the way they choose to promote it. It seems that they are attempting to conflate the two separate services in the mind of customers, giving the impression that their hot wallet service is unhackable.

Now I'm sure Veronica will reiterate that they aren't making the claim that their server is unhackable. However, by continuing to define themselves as "The World's Most Secure Bitcoin Service" without clarifying that this does not in fact refer to themselves but to paper wallets in general, the BoB will continue to be criticized.

All you've done is glue a banana to a shoe and called it "the world's most edible footwear"; it's deceptive and condescending and you should stop.

433  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Future BTC Conference on: May 25, 2013, 10:05:18 PM
The $300 fee was worth it.

Earlier this year I was bashing the conference on this. I apologize as the conference had exceeded my expectations and changed my outlook on the community as a whole.

It is a lot bigger than you can imagine.  Cheesy



Glad to hear it was so awesome.

Not only is it good to hear it was worth it, a conference being worth $300 (and apparently abundantly so) is telling about the value of Bitcoin itself!

When I heard that registration was going to cost $300 or the BTC equivalent, I agonized over it before finally deciding not to go. For me, the cost of travelling there was going to double the expense, not to mention food, lodging, taking time off my "day job", time away from my family, etc.

Then I received an email from Lindsay inviting me to speak as part of the "lightning sessions." I mentioned it to my wife and she encouraged me to go. That was the tipping point. I was confident there would be plenty of individuals I had only met online and that ideas and optimistic energy would saturate the place. The contacts alone would be well worth the $300.

When I was finally in the middle of it, I knew that I had made the right decision. Every person I met had interesting ideas or stories, had either business plans or money to invest, was either already contributing to the betterment of the Bitcoin community or was using the underlying ideas behind it to attack some other issue in new and exciting ways. I also can't stress how much positive energy there was. I heard debates but no shouting matches; constructive criticisms but no outright attacks; honest, penetrating questions but no avoidance tactics. I may have just been lucky in the people I interacted with but it seemed that even the most skeptical had open minds and even the most fervent had well-considered arguments and facts to back them up.

And I was right: The business cards I gathered are worth the price of admission in and of themselves.
434  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Looking for WordPress plugin (or someone to write one) on: May 25, 2013, 07:45:29 PM
I'd love a "Donate" or "Tip" button that, when clicked, caused the existing btc address and QR code to pop up. As it is, it takes up a lot of space.
435  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin of the Americas [vapor] on: May 24, 2013, 06:52:12 PM
I met several individuals from Latin America at Bitcoin 2013, and we bounced around the idea of setting up a Bitcoin conference in the epicenter of the Western HemisphereóMiamiórather than that remote, outer province that was all the rage way back in the 1990s.

We are calling it Bitcoin of the Americas.  (Don't bother.  I grabbed the domain names before posting this.)

I expect that this post will get buried pretty quickly under a bunch of posts about mining and setting up exchanges, but I'll try to update this thread as developments occur.  Anyone in South Florida who might be interested, feel free to contact me.  Mind, though, that this isn't even Powerpointware yet, much less an actual announcement.

I'd be interested in attending. I live in San Antonio, which is not too far and my wife has always wanted to visit Miami. Her Spanish is much better than mine but I can usually get by.
436  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Looking for WordPress plugin (or someone to write one) on: May 24, 2013, 03:12:31 PM
That's absolutely brilliant. I will be testing this out first thing tomorrow on a dev system and picking through the code to see where I can possibly help. I'm very excited to see this become a reality and you can bet once I verify functionality and finish doing a happy dance there will be a tip/bounty heading your way.

This is one of the things I love most about this community: if the idea is good enough someone will just do it.

Ditto.

0.25 BTC already tipped and I'll be happy to send more once new features are added.

I saw this article today about Google Wallet:

http://money.msn.com/gen-x/article.aspx?post=9243b771-ab14-409f-b896-59a3103fb7fc

I would think that it would be smart for Google to use Bitcoin.  It is secure and there are less fees than paypal.  It does not seem like they are trying to integrate anything with Bitcoin yet though.  I wonder if they are at least talking about it?


Mike Hearn works for Google and is very active with Bitcoin: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mike_Hearn

I believe Google has even allowed him to work on Bitcoin full time as an employee. I know I've heard this from at least two sources but can't remember exactly where.

439  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Looking for WordPress plugin (or someone to write one) on: May 23, 2013, 07:31:23 PM
After Adam B Levine's lovely talk at Bitcoin 2013 I was discussing some ideas with him on taking the concept beyond YouTube and an idea came about that I love but frankly do not have the time to build from scratch so I'm hoping there's either already something like it that I can modify or that someone out there has already put in the time to learn how to write wordpress plugins that I can just beg or hire or whatever.

The basis of the idea is this: Individual Bitcoin donation/tip addresses for each piece of content with user feedback and back-end tracking. I'm thinking something like http://coinwidget.com/ on each post but instead of configuring, copying and pasting each and every time simply have a plugin add an address field to each post. Additionally, I'd like the ability to view internal reports from within WordPress, maybe even a dashboard widget on aggregated donations and top-performing content, maybe even the ability to publicly post a "top content" page or select a featured/sticky post automatically based on some kind of donation criteria.

Really, though, those are all nice extras I wouldn't mind having, simply the ability to paste in an address is the baseline requirement and if someone knows of another plugin with similar functionality that I could just modify that will do for now.

On the other hand, if someone wants to write me up a quote for full functionality or if others like the idea and want to start a bounty with me, I wouldn't be opposed to the idea either. Regardless of how we get to the final result, though, I intend to open source whatever I get so the community can make full use of it.

Hi David,

We didn't "officially" meet but I also spoke to Adam very briefly after his presentation and I saw you at several others. I'm a big fan of wordpress and I'd be happy to contribute to a bounty for this.

As you said, a plugin that adds a BTC address field to each post/page and then populated a widget like coinwidget below the post would be great. I wouldn't mind tracking the stats myself if including that functionality requires a lot of work.

From Teresa of fr33aid:

Hi Rassah,
Thanks very much for reaching out to us and for what you're doing with Bitcoin100. You mentioned that a non-profit organization that has proof of accepting bitcoin can sign up for support with you all and receive $1000 worth of bitcoins. Is this accurate? I looked on your website, and this part was not clear. 

Just in case it's enough to send you the website, here is the link to Fr33 Aid's bitcoin donation page: http://www.fr33aid.com/bitcoin/

And here is the Free State Project's donation page, including a bitcoin donation option: http://freestateproject.org/getinvolved/donate.php

And here is the Antiwar.com page accepting bitcoin:  http://antiwar.com/blog/2012/11/27/an-alternative-way-to-help-antiwar-com/

Thanks again,

These are the three charities that had a booth at the Bitcoin Conference 2013 that I've talked to.

Opinions?

I don't mind if each these charities receive $1000 worth of BTC from Bitcoin100 funds. However, since one of our goals is good press for the Bitcoin movement in general, perhaps we can encourage them to do a press release.

In regards to the restructuring/rebranding: I vote for sticking with Bitcoin100 and maintaining a roster of at least 100 bitcoiners ready to donate with maybe a minimum donation of the BTC equivalent of $10. Bitcoin100 has been around long enough and has a history of helping charities, even if it's only been limited to a very few. Changing the name would essentially be a reboot and I see no real reason for it; it can't be that difficult to keep the number 100 incorporated somehow into its workings.
