A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.
We are [Bitcoin Forum](https://bitcoinforum.com). Bitcoin is an open-source peer-to-peer digital currency project. P2P means that there is no central authority to issue new money or keep track of transactions.
Sky broadband has now decided Bitcoin related sites must be blocked "To prevent illegal activity"
Just got off the phone with a very friendly but ultimately useless young chap at Sky who informed me that I couldn't access mining.bitcoin.cz as it and many other bitcoin-related sites have been blocked (and will be staying that way) in order "to prevent illegal activity, and comply with court orders" I do not have the words... Edit: I live in the UK, though possibly not for much longer if this sort of thing keeps up DoubleEdit: Seems to be working ok now. My guess is that either they switched the filter on on our account for shits and giggles, or the site was blocked by accident and they've now fixed it.
Is anyone here running a Bitcoin related site with Bitcoin as payment option? What's your experience?
We are about to launch a Bitcoin related service. As all our customers will hold some kind of crypto currency we are thinking about a Bitcoin-only payment system. Is anyone here running a business with similar conditions? What are your experiences with Bitcoin payments? Does it work or do 99% of customers still pay with credit card? Does this still hold true as transaction costs are now on the decline?
Webroot anti-virus software flags every single Bitcoin related site... regardless.
I am yet to find a Bitcoin site that Webroot does not flag with a warning in the browser protection addon. I believe it is a standard policy - if the site is Bitcoin related... shoot first, and to hell with asking questions. I emailed them requesting an explanation, but I'm not holding my breath.
PSA: Another blockchain scam (someone seems to be going around and trying to get credentials to a variety of bitcoin related sites atm). I've received several from attempted login notices from old mining pools this last week along with several others posing as blockchain.
Hello /webdev, I just created http://btcwishingwell.org . The idea was to create "just for fun" kind of social environment in the form of a wishing well. People would be able to (more or less) interact with each other, or group similar "wishes" by tossing a coin nearby the coins/wishes they are interested in. (or pick any spot to just leave a wish). The idea that spoke to me most was that the wish / interaction is permanent. A coin with attached wish is thrown into the well and it stays there forever. (as long as the VPS holds out at least). The decision to throw bitcoin in the mix was obvious for multiple reasons:
It is fun to use the tech
I wanted to do something with bitcoin for a long time, and contribute to adoption somehow
I didn't want just anyone to "wish" (spammers and griefers)
The analogy with a "real" wishing well is just too perfect.
I am running into a few obstacles i hope you can help me with:
In hindsight i should have expected it, but the site is regarded as some sort of scam. The first reaction is not "Hey fun" but "They want my money". And i don't know how to address that
Should i implement more direct "respond" functionality or just keep it simple?
The original idea was to send the mBitcoins directly to the genesis-block or a charity. But i can't get a transaction callback (in order to show the wish form) without a custom QR or can i? I'm using blockchain.info for that now.
Any advice or ideas would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions regarding the site or the technology behind it please ask. it's pretty straightforward, i'm no wizzard and am still trying to grasp the bitcoin possibilities. Edit: Please let me know if you want to walk through it. I'll changetip you if i'm sure you won't scam me ;)

How do bitcoin related sites handle storing private keys?
I was curious if anyone could explain technically how sites secure their private keys? I know that they keep a hot wallet with funds as well as cold offline storage, but when they generate a private key, it has to be somewhere for the server to access right? How do sites handle that? I read this article https://bitcoinmagazine.com/19592/okcoin-reveals-security-policy-sets-standard-operational-transparency/ But I'm confused as to how they keep their private keys from touching the internet, in order to send the funds they would have to use the private key to interact with the block chain right? Please help to understand this. Thank you
How about a Circle-of-Trust-like browser plugin for bitcoin-related sites?
Saw how the poor soul lost his coins to bitcointools.appspot.com [most likely] and thought it would be nice to have a warning that others have deemed this site less-than-trustworthy. Edit: I remembered incorrectly. "Web of Trust". See here
