Thought experiment: what happens to Bitcoin market cap if mBTC is the base unit (1 mBTC = $13.08)?

I've recently been thinking that a lot of the price action has been driven by new market entrants feeling 'priced out' of BTC – meaning they feel that if they can't afford a 1 btc, why bother. That has driven a lot cheaper, less fundamentally promising (imo) coins to insane levels.
If exchanges moved to mBTC as the base unit, do you think Bitcoin market cap would explode and accelerate adoption? Or do you think this has nothing to do with it, people genuinely believe in the underlying tech of other coins.

Bitcoin Newcomers FAQ - Please read!

Welcome to the /Bitcoin Sticky FAQ

You've probably been hearing a lot about Bitcoin recently and are wondering what's the big deal? Most of your questions should be answered by the resources below but if you have additional questions feel free to ask them in the comments.
It all started with the release of the release of Satoshi Nakamoto's whitepaper however that will probably go over the head of most readers so we recommend the following videos for a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
Some other great resources include Lopp.net, the Princeton crypto series and James D'Angelo's Bitcoin 101 Blackboard series.
Some excellent writing on Bitcoin's value proposition and future can be found at the Satoshi Nakamoto Institute.
Some Bitcoin statistics can be found here and here. Developer resources can be found here. Peer-reviewed research papers can be found here.
Potential upcoming protocol improvements and scaling resources here and here.
The number of times Bitcoin was declared dead by the media can be found here (LOL!)

Key properties of Bitcoin

Where can I buy bitcoins?

Bitcoin.org and BuyBitcoinWorldwide.com are helpful sites for beginners. You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin (even just a few dollars worth) and there are several easy methods to purchase bitcoin with cash, credit card or bank transfer. Some of the more popular resources are below, also check out the bitcoinity exchange resources for a larger list of options for purchases.
Here is a listing of local ATMs. If you would like your paycheck automatically converted to bitcoin use Bitwage.
Note: Bitcoins are valued at whatever market price people are willing to pay for them in balancing act of supply vs demand. Unlike traditional markets, bitcoin markets operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Preev is a useful site that that shows how much various denominations of bitcoin are worth in different currencies. Alternatively you can just Google "1 bitcoin in (your local currency)".

Securing your bitcoins

With bitcoin you can "Be your own bank" and personally secure your bitcoins OR you can use third party companies aka "Bitcoin banks" which will hold the bitcoins for you.
Note: For increased security, use Two Factor Authentication (2FA) everywhere it is offered, including email!
2FA requires a second confirmation code to access your account making it much harder for thieves to gain access. Google Authenticator and Authy are the two most popular 2FA services, download links are below. Make sure you create backups of your 2FA codes.
Google Auth Authy OTP Auth
Android Android N/A
iOS iOS iOS

Watch out for scams

As mentioned above, Bitcoin is decentralized, which by definition means there is no official website or Twitter handle or spokesperson or CEO. However, all money attracts thieves. This combination unfortunately results in scammers running official sounding names or pretending to be an authority on YouTube or social media. Many scammers throughout the years have claimed to be the inventor of Bitcoin. Websites like bitcoin(dot)com and the btc subreddit are active scams. Almost all altcoins (shitcoins) are marketed heavily with big promises but are really just designed to separate you from your bitcoin. So be careful: any resource, including all linked in this document, may in the future turn evil. Don't trust, verify. Also as they say in our community "Not your keys, not your coins".

Where can I spend bitcoins?

Check out spendabit or bitcoin directory for millions of merchant options. Also you can spend bitcoin anywhere visa is accepted with bitcoin debit cards such as the CashApp card. Some other useful site are listed below.

Can I mine bitcoin?

Mining bitcoins can be a fun learning experience, but be aware that you will most likely operate at a loss. Newcomers are often advised to stay away from mining unless they are only interested in it as a hobby similar to folding at home. If you want to learn more about mining you can read more here. Still have mining questions? The crew at /BitcoinMining would be happy to help you out.

Bitcoin Units

One Bitcoin is quite large (hundreds of £/$/€) so people often deal in smaller units. The most common subunits are listed below:
Unit Symbol Value Info
bitcoin BTC 1 bitcoin one bitcoin is equal to 100 million satoshis
millibitcoin mBTC 1,000 per bitcoin used as default unit in recent Electrum wallet releases
bit bit 1,000,000 per bitcoin colloquial "slang" term for microbitcoin (μBTC)
satoshi sat 100,000,000 per bitcoin smallest unit in bitcoin, named after the inventor
For example, assuming an arbitrary exchange rate of $10000 for one Bitcoin, a $10 meal would equal:

Golden Star Casino Full Review

Payment processing has always been the biggest strain on the online gambling industry. Changing regulatory environments have sent casinos into a tailspin when they find out their main source of deposits is suddenly not available to them. In other cases, when an online casino finds a company willing to take them on as a client, the rates they are charged are as close to robbery as can be; this ends up cutting margins down to a bare minimum, making running an online casino less of an enticing career move.
The introduction of crypto-currency over the last few years has shown some signs of promise in the online gaming space. As the general public gets more accustomed to the idea of Bitcoin and its uses, we will see it adopted across more traditional purchasing. The gaming industry has adopted the technology from the start, with several Bitcoin-only sites popping up in 2013 and beyond. Recently, many providers have added cryptocurrency to their traditional payment methods, offering special bonuses for players to use the option.
Golden Star Casino is one of the true hybrid casinos when it comes to payments. As you will see in the review, the casino has integrated Bitcoin into all facets of their operations, from games to payments to promotions. This is a great way for players who aren’t familiar with the product to be able to give it a try without committing to a Bitcoin-only site.

About Golden Star Casino

Golden Star Casino is owned and operated by Jubise International N.V. Casinos, a Curacao based company. Established in 2012, the company also has a gaming license from the Curacao Gaming Authority. This license isn’t exactly rock-solid for players; the country tends to turn a blind eye to company behavior until it is too late. With the license, however, Jubise is able to attract the payment processors and software vendors it needs to provide you with a positive gaming experience at their site.

Who Can Play at Golden Star Casino?

Even though the company is licensed in Curacao, which would clearly give the impression that they would take players from the U.S., Golden Star doesn’t allow Americans to deposit or gamble. Well, actually… there is a way, but you need to be aware of what you are getting into. It seems that U.S. players who use Bitcoin to deposit can actually create real money accounts and play at the tables. However, there have been several instances of players trying to withdraw their funds which, once it was determined they were in the U.S., had those funds confiscated and accounts closed. It is hard to say if you can withdraw right into your Bitcoin account without it being detected, but for the time being, I do not advise you try this from the States unless you are willing to take the risk that your deposit may be taken away from you.
As for other restricted countries, here is the list:
  • United Kingdom
  • Spain
  • United States
Also, please bear in mind that certain software suppliers restrict what countries are allowed to access their games. As a result, you may find some of the games written about in this review are not actually available in your country. The best thing to do is to create an account, and you will be able to see all the options for your casino play.

Software Suppliers

As mentioned, Golden Star has chosen to work with several software partners for their brand. This is excellent news for you; the company has chosen a broad spectrum of vendors including some of the most prestigious in the industry. You can find games from the following companies currently at Golden Star Casino:
  • Microgaming
  • Betsoft
  • Net Entertainment
  • iSoftBet
  • Endorphina
  • Ezugi
  • Amatic
  • SoftSwiss
  • Quickfire
  • Belatra
  • Pragmatic Play
The casino games at Golden Star are available in a no-download format, meaning you can play them instantly through your browser. Many of the games are also formatted to be able to be played on most mobile phones or tablets, allowing you to take your casino experience on the move with you no matter where you are.

The Good Stuff

Jackpots

I love a casino that not only has several progressive jackpots available for its players but one who isn’t shy about telling you who has won them. At Golden Star, you can select from over 20 different jackpot games, and if you look on their jackpots page, there is a scrolling bar of recent winners; no one like to see that a jackpot isn’t paying out. Give some of their jackpot games a go if you want to get a little something extra out of your slots experience.

Bitcoin Slots

This is an interesting option for players; there are slots in the casino lobby that are designed for Bitcoin-only play. Why would a casino do this? Well, with the fluctuating value of Bitcoin these days, players may not want to get hosed on exchange rates. Also, this is an excellent way to have players learn about Bitcoin by having to think regarding the cryptocurrency throughout their entire casino experience.
Satoshi’s Secret is the most popular Bitcoin game in the industry, and you can try it at Golden Star Casino for free if you like to get a feel for the slot machine.

The Bad Stuff

Complaints about Terms and Conditions

No one likes to see complaints about an online casino, and many times I can dismiss them as individuals who are just upset that they lost their money. However, there are recurring concerns about the changing Terms and Conditions at Golden Star Casino. The company denies that they have made any changes without letting their players know, and have taken a strong stance on that accusation. I will continue to monitor that situation; if I find it to be actually happening, then it will be a big strike against the casino.

Games limited by Country

I’ll add this to the Bad Stuff because I live in Canada, and as a result, I am not able to access some of the better games that Golden Star Casino has on their site. While I totally understand why the casino isn’t allowed to offer all their games to all their players, it would be beneficial to have this information laid out in a clear manner somewhere on their website. I would much rather know going in instead of reading a review like this only to find out a game I love is not available when I make my deposit.

Game Selection

As I mentioned, you will find over 900 games at Golden Star Casino. I am going to take a look at all the different categories in more detail for you now.

Slots

It isn’t surprising to hear that the majority of available games in the Golden Star Casino lobby are slots games – this goes for almost every casino in the industry, whether online or land-based. However, having the multiple providers allows this casino to provide you several different looks to their slots catalog. They range from the fantastic content of the Microgaming slots to the 3D slot games that made Betsoft famous.

Table Games

The table games options at Golden Star Casino are a bit underwhelming considering how many suppliers the company has partnered with. Now, I may be missing some of the table games because of where I am reviewing the site from; all accounts are that they aren’t using Microgaming or NetEnt for games outside North America.

Video Poker

Along the same theme, there aren’t as many video poker variants as I would like to see at Golden Star Casino. I know that I am in the minority when it comes to video poker; I like the game more than most people do. Still, an online casino should easily be able to offer as many games as they can. Maybe they will read this review and add some from their vendors; I know they are available!

Specialty Games

One area where Golden Star Casino has apparently spent some time in development is in the Specialty Games offering. Using their partners like Quickfire, the casino gives you many different types of games to play that are not like the typical table games and slots. Many of these games have worse chances of coming out a winner, but I always consider them to be a nice way to take a break from a long session at the Blackjack table.

Live Dealer

Golden Star Casino has selected Ezugi as their Live Dealer provider. While the studios and dealers used by Ezugi are quite nice, there isn’t much in the way of selection from a games perspective. You can play the following games via the Live Dealer function:
  • Bet on Numbers (Bingo variant)
  • Keno
  • Blackjack
  • Roulette

PROMOTIONS

The promotions at Golden Star are pretty bland overall. They are focused on the deposit bonuses as their primary form of attracting to you to their brand. Here is an overview of the bonuses currently available on the website:

First Deposit Bonus

  • 100% up to €100 or 100 mBTC + 100 FREE SPINS
Make your first deposit in Golden Star Casino and get up to €100 or 100 mBTC and 100 free spins in the Lucky Sweets slot

Second Deposit Bonus

  • 75% up to €100 or 100 mBTC
Keep having fun! Make your second deposit, and we will refill your balance up to €100 or 100 mBTC.

Third Deposit Bonus

  • 50% up to €100 or 100 mBTC
More and more bonuses for you! Get up to €100 or 100 mBTC on third deposit!
The company does have one ongoing bonus for players who play on the weekend. They have a “Have A Nice Weekend” recurring bonus of 50% up to $50 or 50 mBTC.
Overall, it is pretty disappointing to see no leaderboard or jackpot promotions, especially given how many games they could use for these types of offers.

Tournaments

Golden Star Casino does have a large selection of tournaments running on a daily and weekly basis. For someone who gets bored with slots play pretty quickly, I enjoy the tournament concept; if I go on a long run, I can make some additional cash, and it is the only way I actually see any other screen names while I am at the casino.

Banking

As I have discussed many times in this review, the company seems to be very focused on making you a Bitcoin user, offering special games and bonuses for players who use the cryptocurrency. Golden Star does also have traditional payment methods available to its players; of course, each will be restricted by what countries are available. The most up-to-date payment methods for your country will be listed in the cashier section of the lobby after you login to your account.

Deposit Methods

  • MasterCard
  • Neteller
  • Visa
  • iDEAL
  • Sofortuberwaisung
  • QIWI
  • Trustly
  • Skrill
  • Yandex Money
  • Sberbank Online
  • Cubits
  • Comepay
  • Mobile Commerce

Withdrawal Methods

  • Bank Wire Transfer
  • Neteller
  • Visa
  • iDEAL
  • QIWI
  • Skrill
  • Trustly
  • Yandex Money
  • Cubits
  • Comepay
  • Evroset
  • Mobile Commerce
  • Sberbank

Comp/VIP Program

Golden Star Casino does offer its players a hybrid Comp/VIP program. In essence, this is a comp program that has tiers to it, giving you more enticing conversion rates for your comp points. While I am a big fan of casinos that give you comp points that you can cash in for real money, I am disappointed that there isn’t more to the VIP part of the program. I am hopeful that there is a more individual program that they just don’t advertise.
Here are the levels of the system and what conversion rates come with each level.
  • New Star – (0-149 CP) – no exchange
  • Bronze – (150-999 CP) – 14:1 Exchange
  • Silver – (1000-4999 CP) – 13:1 Exchange
  • Golden – (5000-14,999 CP) – 12:1 Exchange
  • Platinum – (15,000-29,999 CP) – 11:1 Exchange
  • Diamond – (30,000 CP) – 10:1 Exchange

Customer Service

Customer Service at Golden Star is available three ways: a web form on the Support page of their website, email or Live Chat. There is no phone number to reach the casino at this point; the only way to get a hold of them in real time is via the Live Chat function.

I thought of a Christmas present for you guys!

Hey Bitcoiners! Know someone who can paint/draw/photoshop really well? Better yet, is that somebody you? Whoever it is, they may have a chance at getting Magic Internet Money from a stranger! I pledge to spend 1.24 btc on this contest, 1 btc of which I'll send to the first place winner. The winner can be a group or an individual!

Here's the prompt: Create an epic picture of The Bitcoin Wizard.

Use this as an inspiration if you want, but as long as the picture features some version of a Bitcoin Wizard who is epic, the entry qualifies. I'm not looking to "upgrade" that wizard; what I'm asking for is some other kind of Epic Bitcoin Wizard.
Further, I am calling upon the legendary generosity of Bitcoin holders both great and small. Either pledge your own, or bitcointip something to me and I'll send yours where I send my bitcoin. I'll keep this post updated with the total pledged/tipped.
The contest (or at least, my fork of it ;) ) will last exactly one week end exactly on 0:00 UTC, new years day. I'm predicting that my choice will be close to popular opinion, but that's not a promise!
1+ btc: The first 1 btc will go to whoever I've decided has won. If others contribute to the bounty, their portions will obviously go to whoever they think won, so multiple first-place winners are possible. Also, keep in mind that the picture itself could make more than just the bounty, when tips are factored in. This image, for example, included a Bitcoin address for donations, and has received over 0.3 btc since it was published only 12 days ago. As stated above, the deadline for this is midnight of January 1st, UTC, and will be awarded immediately.
0.1 btc: My choice of second place! Same deadline.
The rest of my bounty is going toward more managerial things, but will still be pretty subjective.
0.05 btc: I'll give out a bit of this per day around this time to whoever has provided the best blog on the progress of the contest. This is a bounty that might be split among multiple people each day, but it could just as easily all go toward one consistently good blog for the whole week. Style is great, but I'm looking for more of an informational log than a personalized writeup.
0.05 btc: 0.05 btc will be spread among those who take this proposal/event and present it in a better way: reword things, rewrite entirely, add pictures, make a flier, translate something etc. Most of this bounty will go to the best material. I'll cough this up 2 days from now, as I'd rather have it created quickly.
0.03 btc: 0.03 btc will be spread among those who effectively advertise or spread awareness of the contest, as soon as they provide some easily-verified account of what it was they did. Forums, blogs, whatever--the more effectively you spread awareness, the more of the bounty you'll get. If you help this cause in a relatively big way (again, according to my subjective opinion), I'll dig at least a little deeper into my wallet than 0.03 btc. Just don't repost or be otherwise annoying! I'll pay this bounty at the same time as the winners are awarded.
0.001 btc (x10): I'll give 1 mBTC to the first 10 verifiably independent donations of greater than 1.5 mBTC, offering a sort of rebate for the earlier tippers. Note that I can't offer this for pledges unless you have a reputation that actively demonstrates trustworthiness.
For those of you who want to donate but don't use the bitcointip bot, use 15ymWo7bXwAN2QfAjgYXJ2N3kbCo1QmGp4.
Well, that's just about all I came here to say. Let's do this!
EDIT 1: You guys can make up your own minds, but I would consider any material that is produced by this contest free of licensing and restriction. If you want to maintain copyrights and licenses throughout your artwork, that's your call, but free ideas are usually more beautiful.
EDIT 2: At 9:00 UTC every day til the contest ends, I'll give out an award of 20 mBTC 10 mBTC to the current first-place holder. (Sorry to change my mind, but I'm not made of money and apparently couldn't do basic math when I made this edit originally)
EDIT 3: There is a placement post showing the ordering of my top picks, which I try to update as often as this post.
(on the 29th something came up, so I don't know who was actually in the lead... if it was you, speak up!)

The first place winner, on new years day UTC, was gapmunky, with this fantastic piece.

EDIT: ...Then, it was pointed out to me that it was a photoshop edit of someone else's work. gapmunky returned the most of the prize money. 0.9 BTC of it went to zeedox (originally second place) for this piece, and 0.046 went to jharsem (originally third place) for this piece.

General Testing Thread: February 12, 2018

Feel free to test tipping within the comments of this post. Tip as much as you'd like in any way you can think of. I'll be in here occasionally to test new tipping features or make sure my small code changes won't break tipping.
Please note: If you test in this thread and think you found a bug, message me about it please!
Also note: If you see bugs in here in my tests, it is only representative of the test code, not the main bot. I test new code here so that when the code is working I can move it over, so no bugs occur on mainnet.

How much is 1mBTC worth?

I see that aside from BTC I have a empty mBTC wallet on fortune jack. Is this a micro bitcoin value or what is the exact value of it?

Need GAMBLING money

How flippin pathetic right????
Well, I typically would use BTC for my occasional online gambling, but I definitely can’t afford any real gambling right now.
And fake gambling.... you know, “playing for fun”, just doesn’t quite scratch the itch for me!
However, my regular online casino takes doge as well (Never used it), but it looks like the denomination is a fraction of what BTC bets would be.
Basically, I could gamble minute amounts of real money, instead of uncomfortable amounts lol. (and example: if I were to play most any bets soft slot with bitcoin a spin at the lowest denomination possible would cost about .3 mBTC ($3) per spin... at the lowest!
Where is I could do a spin for a fraction of a penny with dogecoin (it appears)
————————————————————
I realize it’s a pathetic request, but cut me a little slack in the last six months my wife left me, took two kids, my mother died, and I walked away from a business I helped start with nothing in hand basically. Oh yeah, I’m getting evicted. It’s been a horrible year.
Spare me the fractions of pocket change would ya?

Fee problem / question on 3.3.8

Hi, i have a tiny ammount of BTC and i'm trying to trade it on coinswitch for some Nano, here are the deets:
In my electrum wallet i've got 6.026 mBTC, and the max i can send is 4.9594 with a 0.0666 fee, which adds to 5.026 mBTC, why can't i send the whole 6.026 (6.026 mBTC including the damn FEE ofc)?
Another question : Can i set the sat/byte to 1 sat/bytes? would it affect the transaction that badly? What do you guys recommend for such a transaction? All i have in this wallet is 60 bucks and all these fees are not doing me a favour. The thing is i really would have not gotten into this mess if it wasn't cheaper to get Cash (credit card) Bitcoin ->> Nano, than the cash (credit card) Nano (using an expensive 3rd party like simp*x)
Should i check "Use replace-by-fee" in preferences?
Sorry if it was asked before, thanks you very much!

Technical: Upcoming Lightning Network Improvement: JIT-Routing

Bitcoin up? Down? Sideways? Who cares? Lightning Network is going LIVE and that's all that MATTERS!
Last time I talked about a bunch of upcoming Lightning Network improvements. They weren't complete, because there are a big bunch of them being worked on (or mostly just being debated, most devs are fighting bugs and adding boring little features like adding options for various timeouts in communicating with bitcoind and getting their impls out of beta / alpha and etc etc).
One thing I'd forgotten about was JIT Routing, which renepickhardt reminded me about. JIT Routing is actually a potentially-viable alternative to multipart payments / AMP, and in particular does not require a BOLT spec update, though does require that most nodes on the network implement it (unlike multipart, which requires only that the payer and payee support it).
renepickhardt introduced the idea here: https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/pipermail/lightning-dev/2019-March/001891.html
I feel this idea is underappreciated --- AMP gets all the press --- so it deserves its own unique Reddit post!

JIT-Routing

Rerouting payments by rebalancing just in time to service forwarding requests!

Background

Now one thing about multipart payments --- or even just current, non-multipart payments --- is that the payer is mostly just guessing what channels are viable to route through.
In the current scheme where payments cannot be split up, payers just do some payment through a route, then if that fails, tries another route, etc etc until it gets paid.
For multipart payments, it's not clear what algorithm to implement, actually. If some route fails, maybe it could work with a lower payment going through it, or maybe not; who knows?
The remote node that is sending the failure knows, but it can't tell the payer: for all it knows, the "payer" is really a spy node that's trying to trace how much each node owns (for example, as viable targets for the more sophisticated $5 wrench attacks). So all the remote node can safely say is "channel hazy, try again later" (temporary_channel_failure in BOLT terms) which could mean anything from not having capacity to the other endpoint being disconnected to the channel being overloaded with in-flight HTLCs to the node just being lazy today. It can't say "oh you can only route up to XX millisatoshi in that direction right now" because that immediately leaks how much money it and its counterparty owns in that channel, i.e. a minimum on how much a $5 wrench can extract from both nodes.
So since routing is source-based (so that the payer has maximum privacy and able to get around attempts at censorship), the source has to figure out how to get its payment to the destination. But the same principle of privacy-by-default means that the source can't get information about the capacities of the channels it's trying to route through, because the intermediate nodes sure as hell ain't gonna tell.
Now the insight in JIT Routing is that the forwarding node has the knowledge of the current channel liquidities of all channels it has. And rather than leaving the details of every routing attempt to the source payer, the forwarding node can instead make local routing decisions based on its knowledge of local channel state.

Idea

Yep. That's all of it. That, in a nutshell, is JIT-routing. It's probably more accurate to call it JIT-rebalancing.

/r/Bitcoin FAQ - Newcomers please read

Welcome to the /Bitcoin Sticky FAQ

You've probably been hearing a lot about Bitcoin recently and are wondering what's the big deal? Most of your questions should be answered by the resources below but if you have additional questions feel free to ask them in the comments.
The following videos are a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
For some more great introductory videos check out Andreas Antonopoulos's YouTube playlists, he is probably the best bitcoin educator out there today. Also have to give mention to James D'Angelo's Bitcoin 101 Blackboard series. Lots of additional video resources can be found at the videos wiki page or /BitcoinTV.
Key properties of bitcoin
Some excellent writing on Bitcoin's value proposition and future can be found here. Bitcoin statistics can be found here, here and here. Developer resources can be found here and here.

Bitcoin Units

One Bitcoin is quite large (hundreds of £/$/€) so people often deal in smaller units. The most common subunits are listed below:
Unit Symbol Value Info
millibitcoin mBTC 1,000 per bitcoin SI unit for milli i.e. millilitre (mL) or millimetre (mm)
microbitcoin μBTC 1,000,000 per bitcoin SI unit for micro i.e microlitre (μL) or micrometre (μm)
bit bit 1,000,000 per bitcoin Colloquial "slang" term for microbitcoin
satoshi sat 100,000,000 per bitcoin Smallest unit in bitcoin, named after the inventor
For example, assuming an arbitrary exchange rate of $500 for one Bitcoin, a $10 meal would equal:

[77 mbtc] Quizchain Block 77

Thank you for playing the quizchain.
This is the final block of the first run. As announced earlier, the puzzle is written by Satoshi. I think it is beautiful, a much higher level than the second rate stuff I came up with in previous blocks.
On the other hand, it is not ever so difficult to solve. It took me only about an hour to see the basic solution, though I found many more subtle points later.
The prize for this block is also the block number, 77 mbtc. Funding transaction below.
https://www.smartbit.com.au/tx/bf2213192ca6c8c782a9795c6d3fc9a38a20cafee6452a88cdcf2fecad17ca16
Question: The solution is the puzzle.
Format: [solution] TOMI omit TOMI [link]
Update: Use [solution] TOMI Omit TOMI [link], since that is what I hashed with in yet another mistake.
Link is full private key from unsolved block 44 (Du Hast), with L4VdZUD as first seven digits.
Solution format is eight items in two sets of four. Two items ciphertext and two items plaintext each, 44 read from left and 44 read from right.
FIrst three digits of MD5 hash are 684.
I am looking forward to posting my own solution of this puzzle as a hint at the Wattpad story.
Have fun solving this last block.
Update: The solution written by Satoshi was that of block 46, the Bitcoin address of the Genesis block, reproduced for convenience here:
1A1zP1eP5QGefi2DMPTfTL5SLmv7DivfNa
Update 2: Hints 2 and 3 posted at the Wattpad story.
Hint four.
Looking at the address, we can devide it into two halfs. The first one is the first sixteen digits from 1 to M, then a capital P, then the last sixteen digits.
I think it is a coincidence, but a beautiful one, that P resolves to K in Atbash. K as in keystone, the central stone holding in place the ceiling of a cathedral. That plays a role in the Da Vinci Code novel as well.
Two parts. Two partial questions.
Hint five.
Block 64 of first run.
Hint six.
Block 17.
Hint seven:
Number 7.
Hint eight:
A points to a (Atbash). 1 points to N. N7.
This was the first thing I noticed when solving this.
Hint nine:
Getting pretty decisive now. Only two hints left.
N7. S5.
Hint ten (last hint):
Pretty decisive now.
Given that 1A1 is a name, what name is it?
Update: Someone has solved the block, so I am now free to publish my complete solution to this puzzle. Please find it here:
https://www.wattpad.com/720888559-second
Congrats to the winner and thank you everyone for playing.

Bitcoin Units

One Bitcoin is quite large (hundreds of £/$/€) so people often deal in smaller units. The most common subunits are listed below:
Unit Symbol Value Info
millibitcoin mBTC 1,000 per bitcoin SI unit for milli i.e. millilitre (mL) or millimetre (mm)
microbitcoin μBTC 1,000,000 per bitcoin SI unit for micro i.e microlitre (μL) or micrometre (μm)
bit bit 1,000,000 per bitcoin Colloquial "slang" term for microbitcoin
satoshi sat 100,000,000 per bitcoin Smallest unit in bitcoin, named after the inventor
For example, assuming an arbitrary exchange rate of $10000 for one Bitcoin, a $10 meal would equal:

[77 mbtc] Quizchain2 Block 57

Thank you for playing the quizchain. This block is supposed to be challenging, since it is another 77 mbtc block. It will give a hint about what the whole Grycoin project will be about. Funding transaction below.
https://www.smartbit.com.au/tx/5d2ba35d75f5f87276141aa73eb71b5790e33d0d602d2e03fd166ee3e64f958a
Question: Thinking
If this block needs a hint, it will come up 24 hours from now.
Format: [solution]
First three digits of MD5 hash are d26.
Have fun challenging this big block and stay tuned for 58 coming up tomorrow (Thursday) at 1 pm.
Solved without hint but late enough to give everyone a chance to think and not by brute forcing, if the winner's explanation is correct. The solution was the URL to Satoshi's third tweet on Bitcoin (the first one was the more famous "running Bitcoin" one). This one is the more important one, since it concerns the climate emergency.
The solution was the URL of the tweet:
https://mobile.twitter.com/halfin/status/1153096538
Someone questioned in comments the decision to use the URL as solution. Part of my decision to do so was my aim for a more difficult block. Another reason was that I wanted to establish that yes, players can solve this format (mobile Twitter address) now, since it already appeared before.
Anyway, here is the whole text of the tweet again:
"Thinking about how to reduce CO2 emissions from a widespread Bitcoin implementation"
I happen to agree that that is a good point to think about.
Congrats to the winner, who actually solved 56 as well, and thank you everyone for playing the quizchain. Next block coming up today (Thursday) at 1 pm. It will have a question of three words, which will make it easier to solve than this one and 56.

[77 mbtc] Quizchain2 Block 77 (Stage One)

Thank you for playing the quizchain.
I publish this block out of schedule for two reasons.
First is that I want to use the symbolic value of today's date (July 7th).
Second is that this will be the first and only two stages block.
The first stage is this one. I publish a question and post a prize of 77 mbtc. Funding transaction below:
https://www.smartbit.com.au/tx/ccf5ad645f069dfe263e3df63c906ed6ce449813b968c12c0f862b475014b4bb
I will give no information on solution format, no first digits of MD5 hash, nothing. I do disclose that this one has no TOMI field, but that is all. You are on your own completely. Satoshi did not give any hint either when he published this years ago.
You do have about two weeks of time to think about it. It should be possible to solve, since someone as dumb as me solved it without any hint.
This puzzle was definitely written freely by Satoshi, as opposed to the first block 77, which was only written within the limitations of letters he could force into the genesis block address.
And I will publish the complete solution as the Second stage of this block. This solution will in turn be the question for the Second stage, which will have the final 777 mbtc prize.
Either someone sees it completely without hint or it just becomes a race to confirmation once the Second stage is published. Part of the interest for me in doing this layered block is to see which of these alternatives happens.
I will publish my solution and the Second stage of this block once block 76 is solved (even if this one is solved earlier). If it is not solved until then, I will publish it at a random unannounced time, since it will be a lottery anyway who gets to claim the prize for this block.
Question: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=155054.0
Format: [solution]
Good luck with this one and stay tuned for the solution in about two weeks from now, which will double as the final Second stage of this block, with a 777 mbtc prize.
Hint 1: I already knew that "Satoshi" was chosen as an anagram of "Thomas" when I solved this. That helps with the solution, though not very much.
Comment 1 (no hint): One of my favorite lines in this outing post, which makes a very different kind of sense when knowing Satoshi wrote it:
"I'm comfortable with my legacy."
Hint two: Satoshi writes "Today, Satoshi's true identity has become a mystery. But at the time, I thought I was dealing with a young man of Japanese ancestry who was very smart and sincere. I've had the good fortune to know many brilliant people over the course of my life, so I recognize the signs."
This is Satoshi's hint right in the post on how to decode it. After removing the misdirecting part, I will rearrange the first four and last four words a bit:
Today
I
Satoshi's true identity
recognize the signs.
That in itself is a pretty clear message. To translate it for those who may not get it even in this format:
Today I come out. If you want to know Satoshi's true identity, recognize the signs.
Comment 2 (no hint): Another favorite line in this post:
"But I came by my bitcoins through luck, with little credit to me. " That's Satoshi talking and while at first glance this is just self-deprecating irony, he's actually right. There was little credit to Hal Finney until now...
Hint 3 (last hint): When solving the genesis block puzzle, I had the advantage of having solved this one already, so I knew what to look for. Was much easier to recognize the signs in the genesis block that way.
Comment 3 (last comment and still not a hint to solve this block): Another favorite line in this post:
"I had made an attempt to create my own proof of work based currency, called RPOW. So I found Bitcoin..."
Remove a couple of words from that and you get:
"I made an attempt to create my own proof of work based currency, called Bitcoin."
Update: Now the solution to Satoshi's puzzle is published the remaining resistance to solving the block comes from having to find the format of the solution. The format was used in one previous block. The block I will publish tomorrow will give a further clue on what previous block that was.

Bitcoin vs Satoshi: A different way to think

have a theory.. I am curious to get others opinions of it.

long story...
I was having a debate with a fellow crypto enthusiast like myself we did not see eye to eye.
I feel like the general public is having a hard time accepting the value of a bitcoin due to the fact of its unobtainability for most. People don't want to give up 100s to 1000s of one thing to get a fraction of another like bitcoin. They have grown up thinking a fraction of something is very little and not valueable but for Bitcoin it is not the case.
We all know that a Bitcoin can be broken down into something as small as a Satoshi.
Why not use this as the base measure instead of a Bitcoin which is the largest?

I feel people would be a lot more willing to accept using a currency when your talking about it in a whole value like Satoshi and not a fractional value like a Bitcoin. I think this is possibly why mass adoption really hasn't occurred. Why not buy/sell/exchange in Satoshi. Or even possibly come up with a name for something in between a Bitcoin and a satoshi

I believe a lot more people would be amenable spending $1 for 18000 satoshi (18ksat) or 18uBTC than for 0.00018 BTC
The link below you can play around with converting https://www.finder.com/satoshi-to-bitcoin-conversion-calculator

I believe it will be much more important to think like this when Bitcoin becomes $100,000 and more a coin. We need a more mass population acceptable unit of measure for bitcoin for an easier mass adoption
or maybe something like this could work
1 Satoshi = 1sat
10 Satoshi = 10sat
100 Satoshi = 100sat 1,000 Satoshi = 1ksat
10,000 Satoshi = 10ksat
100,000 Satoshi = 100ksat
1,000,000 Satoshi = 1Msat
10,000,000 Satoshi = 10Msat
100,000,000 Satoshi = 1BTC
or we could take out the fractions out of Bitcoin by doing it a similar way 0.00000001 bitcoin = 10 nBTC
0.00000010 bitcoin = 100 nBTC
0.00000100 bitcoin = 1 uBTC
0.00001000 bitcoin = 10 uBTC
0.00010000 bitcoin = 100 uBTC
0.00100000 bitcoin = 1 mBTC
0.01000000 bitcoin = 1 cBTC
0.10000000 bitcoin = 1 dBTC
1.00000000 bitcoin = 1 BTC
Long story short is we need a way to measure a unit of Bitcoin not as a fraction but as a whole number which the general public could much more easily accept.
Agree or disagree or how would be a good way to implement something ?
What are your thoughts, ideas or comments on this topic?
Edit 1BTC = # of Satoshi

[7 mbtc] Quizchain2 block 53

Thank you for playing the quizchain. One of the smart wizard Minmins challenging 52 came up with the solution fast, good job. So I feel like doing another challenging block now.
For the first time, the solution will be an URL. No need for a TOMI field in that case. But I do expect this to need a hint, which will come up 24 hours from now. On the other hand, I expected that for 52 as well, so maybe the collective mind mining power of people playing here gets it again in the first day.
Normal 7 mbtc block, funding transaction below.
https://www.smartbit.com.au/tx/68c6f4f253c4501ea1ab3b53420cb73ed0253a24cfc30a9c244bca5dd2f3f561
Question: Superman
Format: [solution], solution format is relevant URL unchanged.
FIrst three digits of MD5 hash (not MP5, spelled correctly this time) are 4c1.
Checking now if googling "Superman Bitcoin" gets the solution on the first page. It does not, but the answer to the question "why does Superman hate trading bitcoin at three am" is a nice joke.
Have fun challenging this block and stay tuned for block 54 scheduled for tomorrow (Sunday) 1 pm Japanese time.
Update: As noted in block 54 (already solved) there is a connection from Superman to Satoshi (Hal FInney). That is a hint for this block. Another is the fact that the URL will change depending on what kind of hardware you use. I used a mobile device. And the maybe decisive hint is "warm miners", though that one also does not lead to the solution with a simple Google search.
If this needs another hint, said hint will come up another 24 hours from now and will be so decisive that the block will be solved minutes after that hint.
Update: Solved and prize claimed. As noted by the winner, the URL in question was
https://mobile.twitter.com/lopp/status/1143879778170232833
which is a Tweet by Jameson Lopp showing a picture of Hal Finney in a Superman t-shirt.
I did not notice that the "mobile" part in the URL could be a problem for people solving on laptops or PCs. Sorry for that mistake. Next block will be 77 mbtc because of that, even if it is relatively easy to solve.
Congrats to the winner and thank you everyone for playing.

/r/Bitcoin FAQ - Newcomers please read

Welcome to the /Bitcoin Sticky FAQ

You've probably been hearing a lot about Bitcoin recently and are wondering what's the big deal? Most of your questions should be answered by the resources below but if you have additional questions feel free to ask them in the comments.
The following videos are a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
For lots of additional video resources check out the videos wiki page or /BitcoinTV.
Key properties of bitcoin
Some excellent writing on Bitcoin's value proposition and future can be found here. Bitcoin statistics can be found here and here. Developer resources can be found here and here. Peer-reviewed research papers can be found here. The number of times Bitcoin was declared dead by the media can be found here. Scaling resources here, and of course the whitepaper that started it all.

Where can I buy bitcoins?

BuyBitcoinWorldwide.com is a very helpful site for beginners. You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin and there are several easy methods to purchase bitcoin with cash, credit card or bank transfer. Some of the more popular resources are below, also, check out the bitcoinity exchange resources for a larger list of options for purchases.
Bank Transfer Credit / Debit card Cash
Coinbase Coinbase LocalBitcoins
Gemini Bitstamp LibertyX

Bitsquare
Here is a listing of local ATMs. If you would like your paycheck automatically converted to bitcoin use Cashila or Bitwage.
Note: Bitcoins are valued at whatever market price people are willing to pay for them in balancing act of supply vs demand. Unlike traditional markets, bitcoin markets operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Preev is a useful site that that shows how much various denominations of bitcoin are worth in different currencies. Alternatively you can just Google "1 bitcoin in (your local currency)".

Securing your bitcoins

With bitcoin you can "Be your own bank" and personally secure your bitcoins OR you can use third party companies aka "Bitcoin banks" which will hold the bitcoins for you.

[7 mbtc] [7 mbtc] [11 mbtc] Quizchain blocks 45 to 47

Block 45
Thank you for playing the quizchain. This post will show all three blocks in this short chain. If you want to discuss, please reply to appropriate comment I made.
Having all discussion on one post makes it easier to follow. No need to switch between posts. Let's try this and see what happens.
I would also like you to try this idea in comments. If you do not solve the block, post one and only one solution you tried and have found not to work. Post your best shot. Do not repeat solutions other people already have reported. This is to help other players out, since they will avoid dead ends you already checked.
This one will have a BFUB field, but the question will determine it, since the answer does not require brute force protection. It will also use the last seven digits of the private key for block 44 as a link, to make it a bit harder to brute force. Someone succeeded in brute forcing the link in block 43, this change is in reaction to that.
Another 7 mbtc block. Funding transaction here
https://www.smartbit.com.au/tx/8514df7faec741d53faca908df5ccc855c760430759a2b5a12bf74ce00150f51
Question: Bitcoin Second
Format: [solution] BFUB Have fun with this block Da6Sn4J
Link for this is set to Da6Sn4J.
Solved pretty quickly also.
Someone in comments remarked that the same question was used before and had a different answer. I do not agree with that. This block has no BFUB field, which means that the solution can not be "A" as the last time I used this idea.
That is because this time the solution is shifting ALL letters in "Bitcoin" to the letter before in the alphabet, as opposed to shifing only the first in the other block. Really not that hard to come up with if you saw the other block and its solution.
Congrats to the winner and thank you for playing.
First two digits of hash: 66
Have fun solving this block so you can challenge block 46.
Block 46
Another 7 mbtc block, funding transaction here.
2900dfc636a5a9f8c3bbbc2f28dbd9c0fbc98b7d8c06c2e59de613c5f7dfa90a
Question:
Looking for another Bitcoin address, starting with 1A1. Not mentioned by me before here or elsewhere. I do NOT own this address.
Format: [solution] BFUB Think. Think harder. [link]
Find solution, which is the Bitcoin address I am looking for, leave BFUB unchanged and use last 7 digits of previous private key for link.
Note that [link] for this is last seven digits of private key of previous block, not last 3, to increase resistance against brute forcing.
Link not provided, you need to solve block 45 to challenge this one.
This one was solved rather fast. The prize claiming transaction was only one block after that of block 45. Survived only a couple of minutes longer than 45. You can learn from this quiz that the genesis block address starts with 1A1, if you did not already know that.
Congrats to the winner and thank you for playing.
First two digits of hash: 58
Block 47
This one is for 11 mbtc, since it is one of the special blocks ending in 7. Funding transaction below.
https://www.smartbit.com.au/tx/f0e7f3f0fa053d4c05354eab666e99a0e40a4475ed098b5473759ce93b41b92e
Question: Another difficult math problem. 1231
Format; [solution] BFUB [BFUB] [link]
BFUB will be four or less words, all of them lower case and seperated by one space, if there are two or more.
First two digits of hash: b9
That's it. Three blocks on one page. Let's see how that works. Have fun solving these blocks and thank you for playing.
Update: changed "BR the link" in "brute forcing the link" above, this change does not affect solution in any way.
Update: Last block in this series solved now. A couple of comments.
For one, the idea of three blocks in one Reddit post is not successful. It makes it harder for me to avoid mistakes. I have gone back to posting individual blocks.
This particular block survived for five days between confirmation of the funding transaction and claiming of prize. One interesting aspect of a Bitcoin quiz is that it comes with a time recording function built in. Anyone can look at the funding address and see exactly how long this block survived.
The solution was rather simple. Only one digit, the number 7, as the cross sum of the number posted in the question. One reason was because this was a block including 7. One other reason was that this time the Hoax was making people think this is again about the MATH hats (like in previous blocks) while it was actually exactly what the question said, though the part of it being "difficult" was another piece of misdirection.
Congrats to the winner and thanks for playing.
