Know of any bitcoin accepting shops/sites based in singapore?
Even online only shops could be added (as I did mine and the local exchange)

Add them to the coinmap:

guys bitcoin difficulty is going to go through the roof... allchains.info reports 86497557.64 diff... Shocked
i don't know how you guys feel but i think bitcoin is going to be scarce and appreciate even further... i just made a rough calculation for that 400gh bitfury and in 2 months that device will have mined roughly 15-16 bitcoins that's just pathetic for such a powerful miner...considering difficulty goes up by 20747497.64 each time network retargets... but it will increase even further once more hashrate comes online... unless regulation hammer comes down pretty hard on it looks like i'm going to hold on to my stash...

No matter how much hash rate is added to the network, a (roughly) constant number of Bitcoin gets mined (until the block reward is halved) Hash rate does not result in scarcity.

Bitcoin can be bad for your chi. Improve yours and mine by sending BTC to: 1N1zRYSwKQbZ8Kx1bKvTskrjGMNynVFEr1

i should've been more clear...  i meant scarcity as in terms of mining power shifting away from average joe to bigger companies, concentration of bitcoins in a fewer hands, perhaps institutions, shadow funds, tax heavens... average joe, in 6 months or so will be staring at petahashes, terahash blades that you won't find that easy to host in your house due to electricity and cooling...pretty much most of the miner sellers will start offering hosting options due to that...

as you pointed out as block reward gets halved and difficulty goes higher more mining power will start shifting to companies that are able to secure the highest hashrate at the most profitable ratio... think of Visa and Mastercard, they own the payment highway that's why they are able to command surcharge... that's why this makes me think why Asicminer is planning to introduce hashrate leasing program as obviously there seems to be strong interest from either investors to get hold of that hashrate or some hashrate resellers (cloud hashing), who knows they may be securing it for a year or so in advance in anticipation of perhaps securing blockchain(merchants) or bet on bitcoin price increase... or even better example we have Nets, they own the infrastructure hence they can command surcharges... i just feel years to come bitcoin landscape will change significantly... for now some deep pockets seem to be coin hoarding waiting for infrastructure to mature.. and when you look at a bigger picture, 21 million bitcoins in circulation is not that big considering if it ever gets adopted along the forex market or shadow banking... in that case bitcoin will become pretty "scarce" to average joe...

No matter how much hash rate is added to the network, a (roughly) constant number of Bitcoin gets mined (until the block reward is halved) Hash rate does not result in scarcity.

You dont even show a SGD exchange rate on your homepage :-/

Not to sound harsh, but the only thing, as far ad I can see, that can be bought at Coinrepublic for BTC is SGD. If everyone selling BTC would put their location, the coinmap would be cluttered real quick and it would defeat its purpose. Look at it from the user side: "Wow! There is 100 places listed in SG. Oh, only 5 actually sell some form of goods for BTC :-( "

Working on it. Adding my custom sell/buy rates based coinbase, sgd-usd exchange + commission.

Good point, but I think that's also valid service.
I have another site where I sell an ebook (newsletter) on marketing, payment can be in BTC.  
I have a number of websites which I'll be adding btc payments as I am able, but probably won't add to the map as it would clutter it up.

I don't know. The agenda reads like it's aimed at people that are new to bitcoin. I'd like to think I'm past that. The speakers' list has no faces to it and most of the companies listed mean little to me.  As an average XBT enthusiast, what could I benefit from attending?

The 180.- include free makan and freeflow booze? Just kidding :-)

I just spoke with one of the organizers and it's moving forward. They are lining up more speakers.

I think they may have been trying to first gauge interest, now that its been established they can market it fully and get more speakers on board.

Hakim Mamoni, co-founder & CTO, Seedcoin; Founder, Dealcoin
Charlie Shrem, Founder, BitInstant, Vice Chairman Bitcoin Foundation

If you are interested in meeting Bitcoin startup founders, investors, economists, fund managers, experts, the movers and shakers of the Bitcoin ecosystem in Asia and beyond, register now at http://evnk.co/BTCSG  -  early bird prices till October 10.

re. the focus on the conference, here are some examples of the discussion themes : starting a Bitcoin venture or investing into one, opening and operating a digital currency exchange in Asia, trading on a BTC trading platform, accepting payments in BTC, investing in bitcoin-denominated funds, dealing with Bitcoin regulatory issues, identifying Bitcoin-friendly financial institutions...

We would like to welcome attendees both well versed into cryptocurrencies (like the members of this forum) and attendees with a nascent interest in Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies (the future members of this forum...) We have only planned a short review on 'What is Bitcoin?' after this, the programme will deal with the issues mentioned above and we will leave room for asking questions to the speakers and networking with them. We also hope to attract members of the financial community of Singapore who may be interested in discovering Bitcoin; professionals from South East Asia at large and entrepreneurs wishing to contribute to the growing Bitcoin startup ecosystem of the region.

I hope to see you at the conference on Nov. 15! Do not hesitate to ask any questions about the conference here or at info@bitcoinsingapore2013.com.

Hi Newar,

I know the conference information to date was incomplete, we are working to make more information available to the public at the moment. The speakers list and agenda will be online soon. Thanks to David for passing some information to members of this group.

Conference price includes coffee breaks and luncheon at the venue, Fullerton hotel, no extras ;-) sorry.

Conference starts at 8:45am and discussions end at 5:45pm, networking opportunities after that.

Re. price of the conference we are just trying to cover the costs of the conference, we are not in the event business but we are helped by a local event professional. Our aim is to create networking opportunities for Asian-based Bitcoin entrepreneurs and gather cryptocurrency professionals willing to explore collaboration and investment opportunities in the region.

I hope you can make it.
