Hi I'm new here. Very new to bitcoins in general. I have a crappy miner set up with ubuntu 10.4 and an ati 5830, bout 250Mhash/s, fortunately it is headless so I don't have to look at it.  I need some more cooling for my box, I ran out of money while I was building the dang thang so I couldn't get any case fans.  Its all kinda screwy right now so hopefully it won't cause a fire. Mybitcoin.com stole all my coin meng.  I'm here to get sympathy from people so they will give me bitcoins so I can feed my family. I live in Africa so 1 bitcoin will feed my tribe for a week! This is no laughing matter. Plus that mybitcoin dude stole all my coin so now I'm totally beat. HELP ME FEED MY FAMILY

ka-Boner

Huh

Now that's funny right there. 1-- $11 dollar bitcoin will feed his whole tribe for a week. Hell it takes me 100 bitcoins to feed my tribe for a week just in weed alone. LMFAO. What a DERP.   Cry   Bikerbum

CAUTION!  I MAY CONTAIN MORE THAN A TRACE AMOUNT OF NUTZ   !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have seen a lot of discussions about bitcoin and knew it would only be a matter of time before I found myself
checking out how what they were all about. V. interesting.

I suppose my first observation is scam much?  Grin

Read a few threads in the newbie section, good to know to stay clear of paypal too.
Can anyone let me know if any other wallets are safe to use or am I better off
sticking with a reputable exchanger (though I hate juice) Sad


Hopefully i'm in for one hell of a ride!

Let's see... been mining and such for about a month and a half now, and stalking the forums for about twice that.

Now, I want to post in my mining pool's thread, but... yeah, I need to get rid of Newbie status, shockingly enough Wink

Hello,
My name is Rob. I own a music school. Someone was interested in finding out if I would start accepting bitcoin as payment. I said that I would be willing. But I am having serious second thoughts. So I thought that I would come here and try to figure this out. I am completely new to bitcoin and there doesn't seem to be anything out there to guide a merchant through a step by step process of being able to deal in bitcoins. I am not a computer engineer which doesn't mean that I'm not intelligent. But I am not interested in all of the technical stuff that I find on the net I just want to know how to use this stuff in a practical way. I don't need to know how money is printed to accept it. But what I have found about this system so far seems to exclude people who are not seriously into computers. If a currency system like this is to grow there needs to be a way for merchants like me to be able to learn to use it in a practical manner.

Interesting. Never really saw any posts from a merchant's perspective.

Frankly, the only thing I can tell you? You get paid in BTC, then you'd sell the BTC on an open market, ie, Mt Gox, and then you have actual money.

Now, in theory, you could use the BTC to buy something from another BTC-accepting business, but that's a little... awkward, at times, given the few merchants actually accepting it.

It's a chicken and the egg thing.

There's an entire sub forum based on the "economics" of it all, but that seems primarily focused on the "lol let's make a profit day trading" kind of thing.

Hi All,

27 yo male, Colorado USA.  Software developer for a living and am very excited about bitcoin.  Looking to create app or sites that use or are about bitcoin as the barriers to entry are way low.  PM if you have an interest in creating an app especially if it has to do with RoR or Android as those are my strengths.

How do you currently accept payments for your music school?

If you're working mostly manually (no computerized point of sale or accounting system to worry about), head over to a service like MtGox.com or TradeHill.com and create an account.  You can get paid with bitcoins at that account, exchange them for USD at the current exchange rate and get them sent to your bank account without ever installing a single piece of software.  There are some additional details, but that's the easiest manual method.

Keep in mind that bitcoins as a currency are volatile, at least for now.  This means that your exchange value may not be exactly the value you expected when you got paid:  between the time the person pays you and the time you get the coins and get to exchanging them for dollars, the value may have changed.  On average, you're more likely to get more dollars later simply because Bitcoin was designed to gain value as more people use it, but that's no guarantee.

Are you asking about using an eWallet for storage of your vast bitcoin fortune, or for just a small part of it?

The best way to keep a "savings account" is in an encrypted, offline wallet.  I wouldn't keep my coins at an eWallet or an exchanger unless I wanted to attempt to trade for profit or unless it was convenient to keep a small amount of money there for day-to-day spending purposes.  But I'm paranoid.

Greetings to all.  I'm new to this forum and to Bitcoin although my wallet has had a couple of coins to rub together for several weeks.  LOL

I'm looking forward to seeing how Bitcoin grows.  I see a coming collapse of our economic system and think this is the best alternative.  Now I've just got to convince my wife that we need to put some serious money into it.  However, I'm not going to put all my money in one basket, at least for now.

Hey everybody! nice to be a part of the forum!  I'm still new to bitcoin. I've been mining for a couple days with a single ati5830; I'm not making too much yet, but hopefully in time I can get a second card, and eventually upgrade to a more powerful miner.

I've been making some bitcoins doing little surveys here:  http://www.freebitcoins.org/12676.  I'd say its been the easiest way to make coin for me.  Anyways I hope to learn some stuff here and hopefully one day I'll even be able to contribute something.

Hehe, oh and if anyone ever feels like helping a brotha out, by all means send me some coin (I'll pay ya back someday, promise  Grin)
