Trading Discussion / BTC-TC and LitecoinGlobal - Shut down notice
« on: September 23, 2013, 12:08:06 PM »
This may impact overall price stability for the next while.  Keep this in mind as the money flows for whatever gain or loss you may incur as a result.  (There is a lot of BTC involved here.)

"Website Shutdown Announcement
IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL BTC TRADING CORP WEBSITE PARTICIPANTS

As a result of recent changes in the virtual currency regulatory environment, the btct.co and litecoinglobal.com virtual stock market websites will be closing down.  The following is our current schedule:

Approximately a week ago, both sites were closed to any new users and new asset creation was disabled.
 
Effective immediately, in conjunction with this release, trading will be halted, all order books cleared, and trading re-enabled.
 
October 7, 2013, all forms of secondary market trading will be halted on both sites.
 
Approximately October 31, 2013, both sites will be taken offline.  It is strongly suggested that participants take the following steps to protect all of their virtual assets:
 
All participants should take steps to transfer all of your BTC and LTC (and any other data you wish to keep, such as CSV trade histories) held on the sites to your personal computer or another trusted site.
 
All participants should make sure that their public BTC or LTC address is properly set in the Account page on the Settings tab whereby it can be shared with all issuers.
 
All “issuers” should have the contact information concerning their “investors”, and we ask that all “issuers” communicate with their “investors” as soon as possible as to how they will ensure that all are treated appropriately.
We regret this development. However, we want to do everything we can to minimize problems arising from this transition.  It is our goal to keep this shutdown orderly and calm.

Thank you for your participation, creativity, loyalty and sense of community over the past year.  Additional communications will follow as we work out the details.

Your public and private keys are stored in a wallet.dat file.

So backing up and restoring the client is simply a process of copying this file to and from the folder of your local drive. There is also a backup feature in the client that I won't cover here.

The wallet.dat file is kept by default on windows machines here: /users/username/appdata/roaming/Goldcoin (GLD)/

- First, close the client

To backup the wallet: copy the wallet.dat file to the backup media of your choice.
To restore the wallet: copy the wallet.dat file back into the same folder.

- Then, open the client

If you have any questions, feel free to fire away.  8)

The Break Room / VIN numbers looking like crypto
« on: September 13, 2013, 06:06:24 PM »
I'm sure you all noticed it but going over invoices and PO's today something was bugging me.  Figured out it was the resemblance of the VIN numbers I was seeing looking like coin addresses.

Figured it was worth the funny.

Or at least I found it amusing.

"What?  My car cant possible be worth that much coin!"

Newbie Central / Hopeful

Like a lot of people, missed the boat.  Not from lack of belief or faith in the idea, just circumstances.

So, trying now with some flexibility.  Followed in from bitcoin forums.

Still getting everything setup etc.

Cheers.
