there are 3 sports betting sites that I like:

nitrogen
btcsportsbet
sportingbit.com



Thanks for sharing that info.

It would be nice an website with live odds from all of that bookmakers that currently accept Bitcoin as payment.

I guess there are about 7 bookmakers like that nowadays.

Nice work!

Don't forget to announce that project in a new thread and warn me when it's ready to rock!  Wink

By the way, I just figured it out that betsofbitco.in might work as an P2P sports betting bookmaker with variable odds.

How are they updating everyday's propositions?

Are they rigorous on closing the bets and paying the punters in time?

Hmm :
site gives me this error :

in Opera :
Code:
Secure connection: fatal error (300)

https://betsofbitco.in/login

The certificate is not known by its supposed issuer. It is not valid. In the worst case it may be used by criminals for fraudulent purposes. The website owner must immediately replace the certificate.

In Firefox :
Code:
Secure Connection Failed
     
     
     
     
     
       
       
          An error occurred during a connection to betsofbitco.in.

The OCSP server has no status for the certificate.

(Error code: sec_error_ocsp_unknown_cert)

       

       
       

  The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
  Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem. Alternatively, use the command found in the help menu to report this broken site.

There is no certificate or encryption, there is likely a htaccess rewrite rule to redirect secure requests to the unencrypted site. Maybe there was a cert/secure site before but they let it expire?

HashFast will ship their first chip (to spec) to a buying customer on, or before October 31st, 2013.

Code:
HashFast Technologies (http://hashfast.com/) is a fabless semiconductor manufacturer specializing in extreme performance hashing ASICs.

Their first chip, the Golden Nonce (GN) microprocessor, is in the final stages of development. The GN will ‘tape-out’ and be sent to manufacturing in August. Fabrication will take a little bit over two months, and the chips will ship to customers in October.

The GN chip will perform more than 400 Ghash per second, and uses as little as 10% of the power per Ghash as the current-generation ASICs.

Current-generation ASICs power per Ghash is defined as 1W for 1Ghash.

HashFast's GN Bitcoin mining microprocessor will ship to a buying customer on, or before October 31st, 2013, must hash more than 400 Ghash per second, and only draw a maximum of 40W.

Editor's note: We will judge the statement according to the forum posts. We will call it a draw if we think that there is not enough evidence either way.

Info
Opening date: Aug. 4, 2013
Bet deadline: Oct. 10, 2013 end of day Eastern Time
Event date: Oct. 31, 2013 end of day Eastern Time
Category: Technology
Total agree bets: 0.10
Total disagree bets: 1.00
Total weighted agree bets: 161.114
Total weighted disagree bets: 1614.042

This will be interesting...

QG

Where did this "10% of current-generation" power use claim come from?

I don't recall HashFast ever saying they'd get 400GH with 40 watts.

I just checked, and Hashfast's promised spec is <1 watt per gigahash, not 0.01!

Did the creator of this bet just make up something impossible to ensure Hashfast can't win?!?

Or is it just a typo?

It seems to me that the description of this bet changed after I placed my bet: http://betsofbitco.in/item?id=1210

It now says:
"* http://www.Bitcoinx.org is working on a decentralized exchange for "colored coins", but there is doubt as to whether such coins will maintain their nominal face values when pegged to commodities and currencies. "

I agree that that usdCoins, goldcoins, oilCoins, etc can be issued and backed by a central issuer. And if they back it I expect their price to be similar to their real/paper courterparties.
What I don't believe is you can do this without trusting an issuer, which is what mastercoin attempts to do and what I bet against.

Did I read that part too fast when I bet or has it really changed after I did it?
If it changed, I want to take back my bet, I've been talking about usdCoins with an issuer inside the chain for years, before the term "colored coins" was even coined.
