Re: Increase the block size now!

Anther newbie question but couldn't the block chain size be increased by increasing the number of full nodes connected to the network? Shouldn't we be looking at incentives for full nodes as the more there are, the quicker the network can operate. Unless Im horribly mistaken, and if I am I am sorry ...

BitCoin ATMs in South Africa

I thought I'd start the SA thread off by asking the community in South Africa to list BitCoin ATMs here. I think it would be a great resource to have on this site as it would help both Local and visiting persons of South Africa. I cannot imagine there are going to be a lot, I have not come across on...

Re: LocalBitcoins.com Volume 50-fold Growth in 1 Year

Thank you for this. I live in South Africa, do you BitN? There is a urgent need for crypto-currencies in South Africa however we have a larger problem with implementing. A large part of the nation is highly uneducated and the uses of BitCoin would suit them and their environment. The banks here have...

Re: How to buy

I use localbitcoins.com. I met in person for my 1st purchase. A lot more expensive if you meet as cash is seen as a premium.

I am going to look for other ways to buy in the next couple of weeks.

Re: Block size discussion between Erik Voorhees and Roger Ver

Thank you for that. A lot of it has gone over my head, but that is the lack of understanding I have and not the way the discussion has been presented. But I am learning. Question, again, maybe stupid, there is a discussion about HDD and how cheap and bigger they are getting. Does it make a differenc...

Re: Increase the block size now!

I am a newbie, so sorry for asking, but where are the main discussions held with regards to the block size? Roger, out of interest, and again, sorry if I have missed it, but what would you like to see happen with the increase? If you had a magic wand, and the power to make a change that would increa...

Re: Faucet and scam

I have only recently discovered the Faucet systems... So far, I have not yet lost anything, however, I am yet to be paid (although I have not cashed out yet. One does a weekly cashout every weekend, so I will let you know next week about it). The process of Faucets I think I understand, but in case ...
