Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet

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.

The post-bubble recovery has begun.

I'm going to argue, using publicly available statistics, that we are currently witnessing a recovery in interest in Bitcoin, which will be accompanied by a rise in prices.
The peak in Bitcoin interest was on April 2013, after which we entered a period of decline. Peak client downloads was on April 10, peak price was on April 10, and most other measurable indicators peaked back then as well. We then entered a long period of slump, which we're now leaving behind us.
Alexa stats for show a decline until late July, after which figures begin to rise again.
Wikipedia visits show a decline until july, after which figures have stabilized.
Client download stats show a decline until july, and figures are now slowly recovering.
Google trends shows Bitcoin declining until july, when the trend stabilizes, with august showing a cautious recovery.
Price of course shows a similar trend, with a depth in early July, followed by an ongoing recovery.
Explanation is as following. After the second big bubble, people were expecting Bitcoin to fade into the background. What happened however was that Bitcoin stabilized around a price of about 100 dollar, and the project continued to operate as normal. The only people who lost money so far are people who stepped in during the height of the bubble, that is, during a short period between April the 1st and April 12.
This is currently leading to a new surge in public interest, as it becomes clear that the Bitcoin project has a clear solid base of a large number of enthusiasts who hold onto their coins during times of crisis. It is only now that regulators are becoming seriously interested in Bitcoin, as it has survived two large bubbles and retains its functionality.
A few things have happened since then that have helped increase Bitcoin's credibility:
-Sale of Satoshi Dice for a large sum shows that Bitcoin is treated seriously in gambling markets.
-The growth of ASIC companies, and subsequent increase in difficulty makes it difficult for any government to hijack the project.
-The ongoing process of decentralization, with much of the Bitcoin trade now active outside of Mt Gox, which remains responsible for the April 2013 crash when its servers were unable to cope with the demand. As Mt. Gox keeps struggling with problems it will continue to fade into the background, with more sites taking Bitstamp as their point of reference.
-The failure of alternative cryptocurrencies to raise their market share at the cost of Bitcoin. Litecoin today is still where it was in April, and has been declining since early July. Other big alt-coins have shown vulnerability to 51% attacks, and thus only Bitcoin and Litecoin are now taken seriously. Ironically, the vulnerability of cryptocurrencies contributes to the success of Bitcoin, because division amongs cryptocurrencies threatens all their legitimacy.
In conclusion, Bitcoin is no longer treated as a hype, but rather as a newly emerging technology that has to be taken seriously.

Why I am bullish.

Bitcoin client download statistics from 1st Jan 2012 - 31 Dec 2012
Bitcoin client download statistics year to date 2013
Last year there was a reported 27,000 client downloads in China, this year to date that number is 253,000. In America over the same time-period the figure doubled.
The total number of Bitcoin client downloads for 1st Jan 2012 - 31 Dec 2012 was 786,247 and thus far this year 1,857,405. It is spreading quickly, if that trend continues I cannot be anything but bullish. Moreover, Bitcoin is getting an insane amount of attention right now; I browse daily and there are always stories from reputable news sites on a range of Bitcoin related topics.
My own real concern is a heavy hand from US regulatory agencies, mainly because as the statistics point out the US has the largest number of users. Still, would that kill it? It is a truly global currency without care for national borders. As the statistics point out it is spreading throughout the globe, the longer this trend continues the more robust the network becomes. More local exchanges, more commerce et cetera et cetera.
Also, who can forget that the bigboys are coming to town? They are circling, like sharks with deep pockets, although not really with pockets as sharks are pocketless. Second Market was and still is pretty huge news and it hasn't even begun yet; accountants and lawyers are probably working out plans as we speak.
I watch trading on Gox constantly and what I see is very strong underneath support. If Silkroad went down a year ago it would have been near pandemonium most likely. Yet the price recovered extremely quickly (thanks by the way everyone, I got out @ 123 and in @ 88 -bitstamp) and the buy orders built up quickly above 130.
Anyway, that is my take on things. And yeah we could push down to 130, but I really do not seeing us going below that much at all barring very bad news. People are hungry for Bitcoin.

Here are some interesting analytic tools for you guys

Possible indications of an ongoing Bitcoin crash

I don't really want to cause panic, but we have a few problems at the moment:
Bitcoin client downloads hit a peak on April 10, at 42,000. Every day since then has been lower than the day before (except 15), and yesterday we were down to 16,000, indicating a rapid decline in interest in Bitcoin.
Subreddit growth has gone down. Up until April 11, growth was high and rapid. Since then, growth has declined. We're now at about 300 new subscribers per day, compared to 1,200 per day previously. As the total number has increased so much, percentage wise we're seeing little growth, and may actually see a decline eventually.
We're having difficulty finding newcomers at the moment, and for Bitcoin to succeed, we need newcomers, and ideally people who actually spend the money as opposed to merely hoarding it.
One way to do this is by tipping people in non-bitcoin related subreddits. Remember, if the person does not accept your tip, the money is returned to you. The reason I entered Bitcoin was because redeeming karma from /bitcointip allowed me to get familiar with Bitcoin and actually experiment before spending money on it.

10 months ago, I posted the idea for coinflow, a Bitcoin-driven social network. A month ago, I said the backend, netvend, was done. Now, anyone can download a basic client and participate. I'm starting a small contest: $50 tomorrow, and $200 on the 3rd, to whoever makes the coolest new netvend tools

If you're just interested in the contest, scroll down to the last heading. Otherwise, I'll begin with a description of coinflow and netvend, respectively.

The current state of netvend and coinflow

About 10 months ago, I posted an idea for a Bitcoin-driven social network. I wasn't calling it coinflow at the time, and none of it was built yet. A month ago, I announced the functional netvend prototype, which would be used as coinflow's backend.
Today, we have a basic, functional coinflow client that uses netvend as its backend. It’s a work in progress, but already, the coinflow client uses netvend to provide public chat, tipping among users, checking of an agent's history, asymmetric cryptographically encrypted “whispers”, and other basic social features.
By using netvend as the backend, coinflow is only the first of many clients that will share this social data. Imagine Facebook, but with an open market of clients a user could choose from, or even make themselves. Allowing any client is possible, because netvend charges each agent to pay for the tiny, tiny server cost of executing each request. To put the cost into perspective, a client that queries for information every second would cost the user $0.16 per year.
Feel free to download the client now, either to use or modify. For now, the client automatically takes a bit of credit from a faucet agent, so there’s no need to make a deposit. Because of netvend's open api structure, modified or even independently developed clients will access the same history and community as the original. For example, if someone wanted to make a dedicated chatting tool, it could tap into and contribute to the same chat that coinflow users access via coinflow's chat feature.

If coinflow is the social client, then what exactly is netvend?

Netvend can be thought of as a virtual library of data and payment history, open to any kind of user, client, script, or system--any “agent”. Any agent can add an entry into the database, either in the form of uploading data or by tipping another netvend agent. Data is cryptographically signed by whoever uploaded it, and all history is permanent, unfakeable, and transparent.
All netvend clients share data publicly by default. This means that, if five different developers make five different chat programs, they will share their chat history automatically, unless they take steps not to. At the same time, clients can have the option to send encrypted information to specific users, and guarantee privacy. This is what the current coinflow client offers: a public chat available to all clients, alongside an encrypted whisper feature that only certain users can decrypt.
Coinflow, on the other hand, is just an interface that uses netvend in a social way.

How does a developer access netvend?

By using netvend's three basic commands (post, tip, and query) in concert, many more interesting tools can be made. At the moment, there is only a Python api available. If you'd like to understand how to interface with netvend, check out the netvend api crash-course, which will have you interacting with netvend within minutes. Another useful tool is the netvendor api, which allows the developer to expose any arbitrary script to payment in exchange for serving requests. If you'd like to see a real example of how netvend is used, check out the coinflow client's source code.

About the contest:

I really liked the way why_bitcoin_is_cool ran his Bitcoin wizard art contest, so I'll be running my contest in a similar way: A few large prizes, and smaller tips to almost any entry.
To start the contest off, I've tipped bardiharborow $50 for his earlier work with netvend. Similarly, I've sent another $50 to wooly_sammoth for his work on the coinflow client.
I'll give $10 to the first person to create a script that performs any new, interesting action with netvend. This could be as small as around 50 lines of code, and could be some sort of simple bot, another chat client, an analyzation tool, a video upload tool, etc.
In 24 hours (at 6:00 AM UTC, May 28), $50 will go to whoever submitted the coolest tool so far.
On the 3rd of June, 6:00 AM UTC, I'll award $200 $201 to the coolest submission so far at that time.
In the meantime, I'll be tipping smaller amounts for:
I’ll tip especially well for:
Check out the comment history on this post to get a good idea of how I tip for different contributions.
I also believe some tools built with netvend have a good chance of winning anarchystar's $100k contest. For more info on this, read my response to the original post. The response describes how netvend already provides the neutrality and transparency the project would need, and goes on to describe how one would build a netvend tool that would facilitate the kind of use-case anarchystar is calling for.
If you have any questions at all, please feel free to ask!

Are you ready for the coming Bitcoin hard fork? To protect your capital, be sure you are following Nakamoto Consensus: download and run an EC client such as Bitcoin Unlimited NOW, BEFORE the fork!

Confused about the politics? Let's make this simple. Bitcoin is going to fork. When this happens, to best protect your capital, you will want to make sure you're on the winning fork: the most secure fork, the fork with the most hashpower.
That's the whole point of Emergent Consensus clients like Bitcoin Unlimited. Because Emergent Consensus follows Nakamoto Consensus you cannot be accidentally forked away from the hashpower majority in the event of a block size fork. You will of course continue to enforce all of the other Bitcoin Consensus rules such as the inflation schedule etc.
The fork is coming. Be prepared. Protect the capital you have stored in Bitcoin by ensuring that you are not caught on the wrong side of politics.
Only Bitcoin Unlimited or another EC client can ensure you follow the majority of hashpower when the fork comes - regardless of whether bigger or smaller blocks ultimately wins.
Edit: If you're a business, and you aren't following the "most proof of work" chain, then when the coin splits, rest assured you are placing yourself at enormous risk of lawsuits for making this irrational political fiduciary decision that places your customer's capital at risk.

TIL why Newbies still download the Bitcoin-QT client!

Because we told them to. Newbies don't start with reddit or bitcoinforums (unless they are redditors, of course). They start with what looks like an authoritative source. (And journalists do the same.) Let's have a look. has a list of wallets and recommends two good options at the top, MultiBit or Schildbach, but if you take a look at the bottom, it prominently lists: Bitcoin-QT and Armory (which requires Bitcoin-QT/bitcoind). This is fine, I suppose, but it explains the popularity of Bitcoin-QT since most alternatives come with warnings.
weusecoins, a website that is prominently featured as a first stop for newbies, sends users dierectly to Bitcoin-QT, without any explanation or alternatives.

yesterday was possibly the first day in history that another country (China) was the top downloader of the bitcoin client. This is not going to be a once off event.

The trend of China moving up on the bitcoin adoption ranks has been going on for quite a while is gaining momentum.
I also expect China to lead the way in terms of dealing with possible government intervention. I am not one for predicting future prices but this has left me feeling more bullish than ever. Expect Nigeria, Tanzania, Kenya and South Africa to join the party soon. Bitcoin will have it's biggest application in the developing world.

Tech question: While downloading Bitcoin ABC, where are the signatures of the SHA hashes for the client?

If somebody breaks into their website and replaces the clients + hashes, you have a beautiful way to steal coins.
Bitcoin Unlimited has their hashes with 3 signatures. (As long as people make sure that their addresses don't change, it's pretty much impossible to sneak in a different SHA256 hash of the download for their client.)
Does Bitcoin ABC do anything similar? I haven't found it yet.
