Re: lobby server<->client protocol encryption

I don't understand exactly what this is supposed to solve, but lets pretend I do. Protocol is not very clear... I'd have to read the code. Because "shared key" is meaningless... a key that isn't shared doesn't have much value. I'd rather have the key named "session key" so I don't have to dig in the...

Re: Bitcoin mining made easy

thread is surprisingly quiet, during these troubled times! bitcoin is not dead :) because you rage at me for posting negative stuff. I don't want to start crap in this thread so I am not posting as often as I was before. Sorry, I'm so evil. Like I said before, imo, there are 2 clearly different asp...

Re: Bitcoin mining made easy

I would not... Things to consider: - chances that mtgox will start to operate again normally - risks that mtgox will default - your ability to go through a lawsuit (or at least have someone handle your case during liquidation)... in japan. Do you speak japanese? I think it is a very risky proposal.....

Re: Bitcoin mining made easy

Its nothing bitcoin specific. If you open an account at some forex broker, you have to fund your account before you can buy something with it. When you use their platform to buy something, they need to have the stuff you sell in exchange available right now. Same with bitcoins and fiat at a bitcoin ...

Re: Bitcoin mining made easy

If it goes into your private wallet, what is keeping someone from buying on mtgox @ 325 USD and selling @675 USD on one of the other exchanges? That's a 100% spread.. It does not go into your private wallet. It only goes there when you do a "bitcoin withdrawal". https://www.mtgox.com/img/pdf/201402...

Re: Bitcoin mining made easy

The point is that your most precious bitcoin exhange is witholding payments, and that has clearly affected the exhange rate. Do you disagree? I agree. So what? People have advised against using MtGox for nearly a year, for this reason. When you say *Your* most precious exchange, I'm wondering who y...

Re: Bitcoin mining made easy

I don't know if bitcoin is more a currency or a commodity or even maybe something else. But since bitcoins that "spring into existence" (via mining) are decoupled from any backing (gold/commodity or a fiat currency), it is more than just a payment method. Its price is floating and not pegged to anyt...

Re: Bitcoin mining made easy

Well, you can't really defend them... *knowingly* selling bitcoins for bad purposes can not be left unpunished (and bypassing AML checks you are responsible to enforce).

Re: Bitcoin mining made easy

My point is that nothing is black or white. It is ok to criticize bitcoin, but please apply the same level of criticism to what it is an alternative to... or the debate is uninteresting. I hope to learn stuff here... probably not about bitcoin, but on related/competing topics. It is easy to understa...
