Yifu - on the transparency page (looks great btw!) please mark my work as pro bono. I won't be requesting compensation.

My compensation will be if just one angry socialist discovers Bitcoin and comes to learn what free market really means  Wink

LOL, That was pretty funny Eric.

Wow if I knew 100+ btc could be raised off of ~3 hrs of web development I wouldn't have bought all that mining hardware. If bitcoin is so great why can't you tell me yourself? Instead I have to go on an easter egg hunt, visiting other websites to learn. You don't even make an ATTEMPT to sell it(like for instance tell me how many people are already using it). I know you're trying to keep it simple but if I knew nothing about bitcoin I would probably dismiss it as another Nigerian scam site, with the rushed design and half-assed descriptions. Its a site that creates more questions than answers. Just my opinion though. Best of luck.

Great work guys.   Hey, as I am not near any protests, is there a way I can get a hold on these cards and buttons and such?

I used   BANKS FEAR BITCOINS  at occupy portland, and some people didnt like it.
Seems we are not suppose to spread 'fear'. Oops.

So I talked about it with them, and I am making a new sign. I'll be switching over to..

"Ask me about Digital Currency"

I was thinking of "One World Currency" and hand out paper keys worth 0.0666 BTC.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

My feelings on this project are evolving.  I'm glad I helped fund it, but I have some serious questions about whether it is doing anyone a favor to suck them into Bitcoin at this time, and I've had some discomfort here even when the project started to be honest.

I believe that at this time, about 95% of people are not ready for Bitcoin, and Bitcoin is not ready for about 95% of the population.

Of the remaining 5%, 4% they could probably handle it, and handle themselves, if they were started out with some very clear and non-sugar-coated information about the nature and history of the project and the motives of a certain segment of the community.  The other 1% would be fine even if they were guided straight into the tender and loving arms of MyBitcoin (or whatever the next one may be.)

I don't believe that some ultra-slick marketing campaign is likely to be terribly effective with most of these people, and I am not terribly surprised that trying to tap into some streak of visceral fear and hatred within these people was less than successful.

I continue to believe that the very best advertising for Bitcoin is simply demonstrating that it exists it does indeed work, and doing that through low-key support of their efforts.  That is what I will be doing going forward (if anything.)

Yifu pretty much has the same feelings when it comes to this and it was pretty much the original plan see http://freenetworkfoundation.org/pipermail/ows_solutions_freenetworkfoundation.org/2011-October/000513.html

more transparency from the ows_solutions mailing list Smiley

I would hope that the GA spends it's bitcoin to make purchases rather than convert them into dollars at an exchange.  If we wanted that we would have given them old school money.  Have any of our peers involved with the New York protests given the GA a list of merchants who take BTC?

also, Thanks phelix. I copied it from someone her on the forums.

All these promotional materials that you all have designed, are they available anywhere for someone like me to print out? I love would love to pass bussiness cards or flyers out at Ron Paul booths in my town.

this feature has been backlog'd, but let me know which particular design you need I'll just ask Yifu to upload it for now instead of waiting for him putting them onto the site.

If Yifu has as any business card size promotion materials on pdf, that would be great.

I will provide images of them being handed out.

Thank You

We at BitSyncom have some important announcements to make. First off, we would like to take this chance to apologize for the lack of updates on our part. While we continue to work our hardest to deliver, we have not yet been able to commit ourselves full-time into this new conglomerate, nor the Operation Bitcoin project. Life has thrown us a few curve-balls that we did not expect, but we are working to get around them soon enough. In addition, later this month BitSyncom will follow up with a presentation with big announcements, so stay tuned!

We digress, however; the purpose of this post is to provide all of you with an update as to what has been happening so far regarding Bitcoins, and its role in the #OWS movement:
On October 26th BitSyncom had been given access to the Bitcoin fund and given the responsibility of overseeing Bitcoin donations in #OWS from Martin Becze. After some discussion, we have decided to lead resolutions to a few problems that we currently see in the process:

  • Bitcoin donation funds located on the Tradehill exchange:

At BitSyncom, we feel that if we were to introduce new people to the concept of Bitcoin, we would much rather start with them directly accessing the peer-to-peer Bitcoin network instead of them going through a third party. With this in mind, we have chosen to eventually move these funds off of the Tradehill exchange. Details and documentation of this process will be provided at a later date, which will include what we believe to be the best way to store and backup not only the Bitcoins in this fund, but Bitcoins in general.

  • Who’s donations are these, exactly? What has been happening with the money?

As stated on the NYCGA donation page, the Bitcoin donation fund was previously managed by the Livestream group. This is somewhat true, as when Martin initially started this donation drive, it was primarily intended to be directed toward the media group; therefore, many people including those of us at BitSyncom donated to this address believing that our money would go to them. There were serious miscommunication issues, however, and details were lost between the media and financial groups. The fund was eventually thought to be for the #OWS movement when the general Bitcoin community was informed of it, which caused its purpose to become unclear and murky.

Since groups are still able to manage their own funds and donations, BitSyncom plans to communicate with these groups in order to help them obtain their individual Bitcoin addresses, and to sort out donations between the Livestream and other intended groups. We will either try to figure out when the Livestream donations stopped and the others began, or we will calculate percentages that should have gone to any of the groups, and eventually grant these groups their respective finances.


Have any questions? Comments? Please let us know!
-the BitSyncom Team, OpBitcoin
