Just changing server to make it run smooth, it was running very bad here, Sorry for the downtime guys and gals. When it stops saying "Changing server to make it run smooth!" you know that it is running on the new server.

WalletBit just purchased a humble spot on the right side of the bus.  Wink

Bitcoin: An Idea Worth Spending

The thread is going a little off topic, guess that's ok.

What do you mean? How am I anonymous

https://walletbit.com/about/contact

Do what you want, but anyone who trusts any kind off bitcoin balance to someone who doesn't provide full contact info and an insurance policy OR be in a country where they can be sued, is a fool.

I'll assume that the contact info is in the form of an image to ward of email scrappers, though that no longer works since the advent of imagereaders to overcome that ploy.

That said, I'm happy to report that finding Kris would not be a problem for, as another user has already pointed out, he's not that hard to find. Although I won't post any of my findings, one can easily locate his home address, see family members, and know what kind of dog he owns.

Great idea. I hope it will succeed.
Good luck!

This post alone, Kris, should get a few more pixels sold, thus helping to get this bus out of the mud.

For clarification purposes, is it the finished sold pixel image the one that is going to be placed on some bus, or some other content? I'm referencing the following image from the Million Dollar Homepage as an example of what I'm inquiring about.



Although I'm well aware that this project of yours is meant to bring more awareness to Bitcoin, and the following suggestion may be premature at this stage of the bus-idea-game, but I'll offer it up nonetheless.

Warning!: Justin Bieber is about to mentioned by me--again. Please bear in mind that he's used only as an example.

(possibly for the States or Canada) Picture, if you will, the first ever fan generated, pixelated advertised bus, where all the pixels MUST be purchased with Bitcoin. A true fan would bend over backwards to lay their hands on bitcoins so that they won't miss out on this unique opportunity. Sound far-fetched! Then the person reading this isn't thinking outside their mining rig. (I reckon I didn't have to use his name after all)

Can you clarify a few things Kris. You are proposing a bus covered in hundreds of small ads. If everyone buys the minimum 100 pixels, then there will be 15,983 ads on the bus. Are you sure such ads will be even readable on a moving bus?

Maybe the minimum purchase should be 1000 pixels? That would mean 1598 ads on the bus, which is still a lot for people to read on a moving object.

Kris, you _could_ have edited those terms that you copied from other site. I guess no paint in a bus can be animated Grin

I think it would be better to gather bitcoins to buy several bigger btc-related ads/images to be printed on a bus rather than 1000s of small ads that nobody can read. A big "BITCOIN"-text on a side of a bus for example. And everyone pays a little bit of the ad and you could see progress somewhere etc.

Yes I would like to place the finished pixel image on the bus, hopefully both sides and the back.

I am betting on some big players, buying big spots, or like austonst idea, which is also awesome by the way.

Seems like a good opportunity to do some bitcoin advertising. Maybe we could all pitch in for a large ad for bitcoin itself, prominently displayed on the side? It would be shame to have this filled up with random ads for bitcoin-related projects without a central bitcoin logo and something like a weusecoins.com or bitcoin.org link.

Best idea ever!, you will even have my support on that one.

I can keep the pitch in safe on this address: 1MjyWLY1Rvx7rtqKwymA6Mo1gXF1UaFB8G   The address is hosted on WalletBit, so it's safe.

Until we decide for a go on the giant Bitcoin Ad.

I edited this
Images must NOT be animated (imagine how messy the homepage would look)

To this
Images cannot be animated (it is just not possible yet on a bus)

 Grin

You are more then welcome to pitch in on this address: 1MjyWLY1Rvx7rtqKwymA6Mo1gXF1UaFB8G

For one full side of the bus, we would need ฿2,113.20 in terms of ฿0.30 per 10 x 10 pixel block

That simply means the amount of bitcoins you had access to wasn't high enough to make you fake a theft.  But everyone has a number.
You're saying that there doesn't exist a single honest person in the world. That's ridiculous.

Bob: Father Christopher, the Church needs a new paint job.
Father Christopher: And?
Bob: (After a short pause.) New plants around the Church would be nice.
Father Christopher: AND?
Bob: (Still puzzled.) A new organ?
Father Christopher: AND?
Bob: (Gets it!) Four young lads have recently become members.
Father Christopher: (Drooling) Fetch me the checkbook, Bob.

Tomorrow, I'll post a conversation with the Dalai Lama.

Great idea! Will you be selling physical Bitcoins to people from the bus? That would be cool.

Of course I am not saying that - every person in the world doesn't take bitcoin deposits. 

But it's not ridiculous when you combine it with anonymity.  A person starts a bitcoin service and remains anonymous to keep the option open of one day committing theft and getting away with it easily.  I'd love to hear other reasoning, but I won't comment further in this thread, as I don't want to derail it any further.

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to prayers.

And on that remark, here is another example.



From what I can read, and the people I talked to, I think we can manage to get a great deal for 4 weeks, IF we get all the pixels filled up. But right now, One week maybe 2-3 days is the goal, depending on how things develop.
