Instawallet closes claims process & BTC 24 has tyrouble in ...
Hey r/bitcoin, I'm the guy who created Instawallet and is now working on Bridgewalker, a euro-denominated wallet for the Bitcoin economy; I am excited to announce, that today Bridgewalker has been acquired by Hive!
The announcement is here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=334383 Bridgewalker's website: https://www.bridgewalkerapp.com/ Hive's website: http://grabhive.com/ Following the acquisition, I will be joining the Hive team and working on an Android port of Hive. Bridgewalker will continue to operate as an open beta and we will explore how to best integrate it into the Hive ecosystem. I am very excited to see where all of this leads! Thanks to all beta testers! Your work is very much appreciated. Check out Bridgewalker and Hive and help us in pushing the Bitcoin ecosystem forward!

https://github.com/kangasbros/django-bitcoin-instawallet where is my private key, I need to back up it After install, I can't find the wallet file. thanks edit: someone said, "the account balance is hold in the database and not in bitcoind.". Does that mean the private key lies in the database? thanks
Hi all, My memory's a bit foggy, but I recall mining a few Bitcoin back in the Early Days (2009-2010ish). At the time, there wasn't much to do with Bitcoins (recall the 10,000 BTC pizza), so after a week or so of tinkering (including moving some BTC to an early web-based Bitcoin wallet whose name escapes me just to see what transferring BTC was like) I quickly lost interest, uninstalled the Bitcoin Core software, and went on with my life. Recently, I've been tempted to see if that online wallet service (a) still exists and (b) if my early BTC are still there. However, I can't recall the name of the service and can only vaguely describe the web interface (extremely simple in operation, consisting of white or other light colors -- can you tell my memory sucks for this?). Is there some list of all the various early online Bitcoin wallet services? If so, where would one find such a list? Anyone remember any early such services that might not be on the lists? Thanks!
I've tried Dwolla and Liberty Reserve or even Getbitcoin but can't seem to figure out how to actually transfer my money into an account and then send it to my silk road account information. Please help.
What is the best way to convert USD into BTC and transfer it to my SR account?
I've pretty new to SR and have been doing a lot of research. However, I cannot find the best way/easiest way to convert my money to bitcoins and make the transfer to SR. I started to use mtgox but they wanted me to call my bank to wire money over to Japan. Sorry if this is a dumb question, but my research isn't answering my questions.
I transferred bitcoins from mtgox ->instawallet->blockchain.info/wallet/send-anonymously ->2nd instawallet. I saw the bitcoins arrive in the 2nd wallet. I saved the url and came back the next and they are gone. Is there any advice I should head or any precautions I should be taking? Edit: Forgot the arrow from mtgox to the first instawallet
Getting Bitcoin into Africa: A Bitcoin wallet for feature phones.
I've built a Bitcoin web-wallet for feature phones. It works much like Instawallet did, but uses a login and password. I originally built it for African phones, so I've ensured compatibility with the five most popular models used there. Everything validates to XHTML Basic 1.1, so it can run pretty much anywhere you can access the web. Here it is running on my feature phone:
Let's kickstart the next revolution in Bitcoin: Facebook Integration
WAIT: You're about to downboat me because I mentioned facebook. That's cool. You probably don't like it. It's where the kids hang out and it's riddled with invasions of privacy. Where do you think our biggest opportunity is? Facebook. Now walk your happy ass over to that arrow and make it red. The Revolution: Let's start the next bitcoin revolution on Reddit tonight. I'm about to plant a seed that will make bitcoin a reality for the world. The goal seems impossible, and I have difficulty conecptualizing how it will work - but it is the future, so stop fighting it. Your job is to think about this. Tell people about it. Pastebin it, repost it, rephrase it, hack it, code it, share it, github it, develop it, then facebook it. What is it? The concept is simple: Transparent integration of bitcoin onto each facebook page. Users send money to other users with the click of a button and no worries. When they ask more questions they follow a link to a simple explanation. What are the requirements?
The functionality is not dependent on facebook, but not directly in opposition to fb policies. Fully integrated with facebook, but not accessible by facebook hacking. Able to be accessed account through third party without giving facebook direct access. See bitcointip bot's private key export method.
There is little or no dependence on a third party server. If code is pulled from a third party server it should be trusted and robust. Integration with a service like blockchain.info wallets or instawallet.org are probably required - but preferrably with diversity and failover. (round robin?, user choice?)
Viral - The functionality spreads from one user to another with little or no action required. Transactions default to public but may be privatized.
simple - One or two clicks should do the trick.
Should not require facebook user app permissions - but this may be necessary (?)
Public - the entire framework should be posted publicly to github.
Sounds impossible, right? It does look like a big task. Pick a day, build a team, get some coffee and make this happen. Additional Challenge: Do all of this without earning the scorn and wrath of fb.
Legality of Bitcoin gambling sites? How to protect oneself?
In the US, it is my understanding that online fiat gambling sites are illegal. What about BTC sites like anonibet and betsofbitco.in? What can someone do to protect themselves from getting traced? Is it risky to use your main BTC address to deposit BTC to these sites? What about withdrawing?
I just did a quick search and found a comment by ringalo about 4 months ago.
You don't need to pay to tumble your coins. My method of sending BTC to SR is as follows: 1) Send the BTC to an instawallet address (address 1), bookmark it and wait for maybe an hour. 2) Make a new instawallet address under a tor connection (address 2), bookmark it and note the bitcoin address. 3) Send the BTC from address 1 to address 2. The BTC that show up in address 2 comes from instawallets reservoir of BTC and are completely different coins than the ones I had originally in wallet 1. 4) Wait another hour and send them to another instawallet address under a new tor identity (wallet 3) and wait another hour. 5) Repeat step 4 to tumble coins as many times as you'd like. 6) Send them your SR address (I get a new address every time I send coins to one of them) where they will be tumbled again with SR's tumbler. Probably unnecessary but this adds another level of security if SR is compromised and makes the coins extremely difficult if not impossible to be traced back to me even without SR's tumbler.
My question is whether or not you can buy the BTC with a bank transfer in the first place, or does it have to be an anonymous purchase with cash/prepaid cards etc. I'm in the UK and getting coins without using a bank is pretty hard :(
Public service announcement: Do not use online wallet services
Instawallet announced a security breach today. Apparently, people were still using it. So I'm putting this up as a public service announcement to everyone: "Online wallet services" are an invitation to theft and fraud. Do not use them. I've been saying that since July 2011 (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=26260.0), before MyBitcoin ran off with everyone's money, and it's just as true today as it was then. If you lost money today I feel for you, but seriously, it's your own damn fault. A Bitcoin is only yours if it was last sent to an address that is yours, and an address is only yours if no one else knows what it is - in other words, you have to have generated it anew on a secure, malware-free computer, and avoided ever putting the wallet file on any computer that has malware or that is not yours. Seriously, stop it, you fools.
I will hopefully be buying bitcoins soon. I will be buying them through bitinstant. Is it safe to have them sent directly to my SR account or should I set up a wallet and send them from there to SR? Thanks.
I've read a lot about how it should be quite clear to trace bitcoins from X to Y to Z just being moved around between normal wallets (without using a mixer). To test this, I've sent BTC from one Instawallet (1) to another (2). When I look up the transaction ID, on blockchain.info, I can see money being moved to (2) but there's a list of address on the left of the arrow and none of them are (1), where the coins came from. Also there's another address with a smaller amount on the right hand side of the arrow above the address of my (2) wallet. I've also never been able to find the source address when I look in the taint analysis. Any tips on how this can be traced?
Hi r/bitcoin, I'm working on a point of sale terminal combining NFC and (optional) offline payments based on a Raspberry Pi and am thinking of doing crowdfunding to finish the project and release the 'Bitcoin Box' as open source and open hardware. What are your thoughts - would you pledge?
all Bitcoin Box source code under an open source license
instructions on how to build your own Bitcoin Box
coordinating with the developer community to agree on and document necessary standards (e.g. TBIP74 and TBIP75)
coordinating with wallet developers and service providers like BitPay to support the standards
What are your thoughts? Would you fund a project like this? I appreciate your input! To address one question right away: "Why is this even needed? Just use a cheap Android phone and slap an app on it, done!". Cheap Android phones often do not have NFC or have the antenna in some inconvenient place for a checkout situation. The more important advantage of the Pi is though, that it has an Ethernet port, which will make it possible to connect it to cash registers. This kind of integration would not be part of this crowdfunding round, but it would be the next logical step.
RUSHWALLET.COM (Beta) - The Evolution of the Bitcoin Instant Wallet
Announcing the Beta launch of RUSHWALLET. A free, instant Bitcoin wallet service. The goal of this project was provide a service that fills the void left behind with the failure of Instawallet for a fast, simple, and secure instant Bitcoin wallet. RUSHWALLET provides users instant access to a wallet where private keys are generated client-side, meaning keys to your wallet are not held on ANY server and ONLY the account holder has access to the wallet. The private URL system implemented has been tested on other live projects of ours over the last few months with great success. Should for any reason our site go down your private key can be used to import your wallet into another service that offers a brain wallet import feature. (Blockchain.info for example) We encourage feedback and suggestions during this testing phase and are looking for 20-30 Beta testers. Simply reply to this post that you're interested and we'll send you 100,000 Satoshis to the wallet address of your choice so that you can test the RUSHWALLET service. All we ask is that you agree to provide feedback/comments in this thread so that we can push out the full release soon to the Bitcoin community.
