Hello all. I've decided to give Bitcoin a try. As a test, I want to see if I can make $1 USD from selling a picture. According to this, 500 Bitcoins should roughly be a dollar (after PayPal fees), right?

Does the offer still stand? I need a new background for my iMac.

500 BTC, right? No problem.

Let me just check under the cushions of my couch real quick...

I don't want to buy the wallpaper for the same reasons I don`t want to buy wallpapers for real money:

There are free sources for very good wallpapers, so why spend money for it ?

Indeed. We could expect more in exchange of our crypto currency and specially for the bitcoin. Buying picture is not big industry and even professional image creators are like uploading their pics over the blog and you can claim them without any copy rights action.

If you want to test it anyway then why not offer some licensed software or something that you have brought and want to resell for some reason. Someone might be interested in doing that kind of trade. You will get your money back as well as you will have the whole thing tested for it.

I assume you tested it, then, and it did not work? What about decimal? Can I send 0.01 cents? Just give the idea. I will not hang on decimals. That does not seem to be necessary. I think people will use Bitcoin addresses more often than IP addresses when sending or receiving coins. That seems less than ideal. Now, if anyone sends 500 coins and tells me in Private Message when they send it, I'll reply with a link to the picture. Posted by the bitcoin address into the transaction to the network and the receiver discovers it from the network. I would love to find a way to include a short message, but the problem is, the whole world will be able to see the message. Unfortunately, ECDSA can only sign the signature, it can not encrypt the message, and we need the small size of ECDSA.

It would appear so, thus predating Laslo's Pizza Party by a few months.

*HISTORY*

Popular consensus in Twitter spaces 2023 says, yes it is, now predating Laszlo's Pizza.

Perhaps it was overlooked in the past because the pizza was a "real world good" and this jpeg wallpaper was "only digital".

How times change.  Grin
