Nastyfans.org is working for me at the moment, at least on my iPhone's Safari browser.
- I can already tell those coins are going to look fucking amazing! The sheer thickness of that hunk of .999 silver is a thing of beauty! Can't wait to to see full front & back pictures of the finished product with holograms in place. I just wish I could have afforded one, but I will buy/sell/trade my way there eventually.
I do not have any links and I did not read any articles. This is my opinion. My experience comes from handling nastyfans transactions using my own custom Bitcoin node since 2012.
The Bitcoin Foundation receives pressure to create a instant pay system. For this reason they encourage organizations to accept unconfirmed payments. THIS IS WRONG! Any organization that accepts payments with less than 6 confirmations do not understand how Bitcoin works and deserve to be ripped off with double-spending tricks.
By using stupid first come first serve logic and transaction coloring Bitcoin XT encourages acceptance of unconfirmed transactions. And by doing this they also are saying double-spenders are evil. THAT IS ALSO WRONG! Even nastyfans was required to double-spend
to get funds out.
Bitcoin protocol requires 60 minutes for reliable transaction confirmation. If that is too long for the commercial world then using Bitcoin directly is not for them. There are plenty of business models like BitPay that allow merchants to have immediate confirmations for a service fee.
Thanks for the clarification nonnakip. I am definitely not a fan of the Bitcoin Foundation and all of their BS drama, and for the fact that an average person may confuse the BF's relation to Bitcoin or may think they are somehow "in charge" of Bitcoin, which would be the complete opposite of decentralization. Like you said BitPay and other organizations consider the invoice paid immediately after receiving the Bitcoin transaction. I don't see why 60 minutes would be a big deal for any company to wait anyways, unless perhaps they are selling digitally transferred goods, because unless they ship the purchased item within 1 hour it shouldn't be a big deal. Instead of an "instant pay system" that works on 0 confirms, why not pop up a message stating "Bitcoin Payment Received. After your payment has received 6 confirmations from the Bitcoin Network, it will be considered ready for shipping. This process is a safety precaution and usually takes approximately 1 hour." ?
