Short story : Post a Bitcoin address, I will send you one Bitcoin. No questions asked, no strings attached. I don't want anything in return whatsoever. The only qualifier is that you must have at least 146 thanks to your forum name. This offer is limited, I'll make a post when no further Bitcoins are available.

If you don't know how to obtain an address, probably the simplest way is by visiting blockchain.info (http://blockchain.info/) and clicking the Wallet tab up right. An address looks something like 1Fx3N5iFPDQxUKhhmDJqCMmi3U8Y7gSncx or something like that (always starts with 1blabla).

Long story : My boss (Mircea Popescu) ended up embroiled in an Internet epeen contest (http://polimedia.us/trilema/2013/the-trolling-something-awful-competition/) with Something Awful (the forum). Unlike the goons he is rich, and so he's been winning (http://polimedia.us/dtng/c/res/18313.html#18332). While mining that forum for comedy gems I stumbled upon a link to this local thread (http://www.stripperweb.com/forum/showthread.php?173251-Have-you-heard-of-this-new-currency-and-way-of-getting-paid-called-Bitcoins/page16), which makes baby Jesus cry. I reported on it, MP said that sort of bullshit can not stand, so here we are. Bitcoins are a lot more and a lot better than some whiny&clueless whatever that guy was. They're also a great fit for the needs of girls in this line, although that may not be immediately apparent. That's about it, wasn't that long a story in the end was it. If you're wondering why 146 thanks, it's because we needed some sort of limit to prevent new account spamming, thanks seemed a reasonable metric and 146's the lowest that won't exclude Holly Snow, who kicks ass.

Cheers.

Then you should know, as a reputable PR, that it's not the best idea to just jump into a forum and spam. If you would like us to take you seriously then it is always appreciated to contribute to the forum (there are a couple of bitcoin threads) and tell us a little bit about yourself.

How is a bitcoin giveaway tied to your boss and the issues he is having?
If you have read the bitcoin thread then you would know that many of us dont find it as or stable way of receiving payment. Not to mention the kind of "crowd" bitcoin draws in. If your boss got caught up in some trolling contest I'm sure your aware of the issues that can come with dealing with that kind of crowd.
I would love to hear a good reason why we should post links in our community forum for you in exchange for one bitcoin.
And are you calling the conversation we had in the forums "bullshit" because we are weary of bitcoins?
I just feel like this is very shady. We don't know who you are or where you came from. Again, if you would like to contribute to the forum and show us otherwise that would be appreciated. I feel that the best way to address the thread that would "make baby Jesus cry", would be to answer some of the questions the girls have regarding bitcoins and clarify any doubts we have about it being a safe, secure form of payment.

The entire link is that he saw some random idiot giving Bitcoin a bad name and didn't like it.

[quote]If you have read the bitcoin thread then you would know that many of us dont find it as or stable way of receiving payment.

I can appreciate that. The idea is that you get some for free. What can possibly go wrong?


Not to mention the kind of "crowd" bitcoin draws it. If your boss got caught up in some trolling contest I'm sure your aware of the issues that can come with dealing with that kind of crowd.

Surely. I deal with that kind of crowd over at the dedicated forum day in-day out. What can you do?

Wait, what? You shouldn't post any links. What links should you post?


And are you calling the conversation we had in the forums "bullshit" because we are weary of bitcoins?

Not that I'm aware.

Well, given that previous experience I linked to in the OP I can't blame you.

Actually, I am.

I can tell you straight that I'm not associated with blockchain.info in any way, I just put the link there for convenience (seeing how the alternative is downloading a full Bitcoin client, and that takes a while). However, the respective link is not the only way to get an online wallet, there are a few other alternatives. Since linking seems to be problematic I'll abstain, but anyone can google "Bitcoin online wallet" or somesuch.

I am not getting paid anything specifically to post here, or per person that subscribes/gets a BTC or anything like that. As far as I can determine MP makes absolutely nothing from giving away free BTC. I fear that as unbelievable as this may sound, it is a case of kindness of the heart.

You said "post a bitcoin address". I thought addresses were links? They're the same thing to me. Routes someone to the given address and is promo for that site via our forum. I dont feel like its a great idea to post addresses we don't know about on our forum in exchange for a bitcoin. Most girls can't check the links out as they do not have a .TOR browser.
And no we do not deal with child pornography enthusiasts, drug dealers, or hitmen on an everyday basis mainly because it is not accessible on the regular web, the deep web is a whole other story. I understand the entire community isnt associated with these activities but the anonymity of bitcoins help foster these activities in the deep web. Surely you must not be new to this. Many girls want nothing to do with it bitcoin for this very reason. Not to mention its all P2P. This form of payment is not yet stable enough for a lot of us to risk taking.

And I did ask a couple of times who you are and where you are from. Do you only do PR? What brought you to our site? Do you cam or work in the adult industry? Do you have any proof of who you are or any sources for us to look at lead us to believe you are someone we can trust? Thanks

You said "post a bitcoin address". I thought addresses were links? They're the same thing to me.

They are not at all links. They're simply a string, starts with 1. I gave an example in the original post, something like 1gkhdfkjhgkdfhgjkdf is an address. That's all, like a bank account number or w/e.



Most girls can't check the links out as they do not have a .TOR browser.

There's really no relation to Tor here. Some Bitcoin sites, and some non-Bitcoin sites use Tor, but that's neither here nor there.


And no we do not deal with child pornography enthusiasts, drug dealers, or hitmen on an everyday basis mainly because it is not accessible on the regular web, the deep web is a whole other story.

I think you misrepresent both Bitcoin and this fabled "deep web". I've been doing PR for Bitcoin's largest corp for over a year and I haven't met any hitmen, child pornographers etc.


I understand the entire community isnt associated with these activities but the anonymity of bitcoins help foster these activities in the deep web.

This is sort of like saying living in Kentucky associates you with rape. Come on, why stereotype like that! It never helped anything.


Surely you must not be new to this. Many girls want nothing to do with it bitcoin for this very reason. Not to mention its all P2P. This form of payment is not yet stable enough for a lot of us to risk taking.

Hey, I'm just offering you a novelty one Bitcoin, I'm not asking you to take it in exchange or anything, right?


Do you only do PR? What brought you to our site? Do you cam or work in the adult industry? Do you have any proof of who you are or any sources for us to look at lead us to believe you are someone we can trust? Thanks

I don't cam at all, sorry. The only reason I'm here is exactly the one stated : boss didn't like how Bitcoin was being represented here, decided to give some away so people can try it out, sent me to do it. I suppose this (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=131993.0) may be acceptable reference, maybe?

Giving bitcoins away is not going to do anything here but cast more doubt until the issues addressed in the last thread are addressed. That seems reasonable doesn't it? Giving them away does not change any of our concerns.

And if these strings are not links, then why would we want to post them? What is achieved by posting these "strings"?

Okay, I'll go through that thread and make a summary? That'd help?

I know who to pay? The way Bitcoin works is if you want to pay somebody you need a string like that they control, you send Bitcoins to it, now they have it and can spend it (by sending it to like strings).

https://twitter.com/Mircea_Popescu

I can not say if it will or won't help. That's up to the community. The point I am trying to get across is that I feel that issues with bitcoin need to be addressed prior to even consider trying it out.

I brought this up before but you did not address my question. When you stated "I reported on it, MP said that sort of bullshit can not stand, so here we are. "
Are you referring to the conversations in the bitcoin thread? I do not feel anything that any of our community members said was bullshit. Its mainly concern for our safety and what comes along with accepting and using bitcoins. If you do not agree with any statements made on that thread then please respond accordingly. I'm sure many people that were interested in bitcoins would love to bring some of their concerns to you. I truly feel that if you have valid answers that can alleviate our concerns we would more be open to your bitcoin giveaway.

Bitcoin has been around for a while now and apparently they're also adult friendly.

Bitcoin was introduced early January 2009. The original paper (http://bitcoin.org/bitcoin.pdf) describing it may be interesting to those who are interested in advanced math.

Bitcoin is neither adult friendly nor unfriendly : it's simply neutral. There's nobody who can tell a Bitcoin user what to do with their Bitcoins. They can't really be confiscated, stolen, impounded, taxed and so forth. They can be lost, if one loses the wallet file/passwords and so forth. In case this happens there's nothing one can do to recover their Bitcoins - it's not like a forum where you could ask your account be reset or something.


I do know that these coins are widely used in the deep web, which would certainly bring some..... interesting traffic.

This is maybe a legitimate concern. Many people who have Bitcoins are also good with computers. This may mean they're lonely and rich, on one hand, or it may mean that they're mean and disruptive, on the other. Mixed bag I guess.


So I need to ask you, who are you? Are you a Bitcoin rep? A Bitcams rep?

I am a rep of MPEx, which is an exchange for securities denominated in Bitcoin. Stocks, options, that kind of stuff. The thing is run by MP. My relation to Bitcoin is limited to that, sort of like Chuck-e-Cheese's relation to the US Dollar.


My biggest concern is that bitcoins, are mainly used for those wanting to stay anonymous online,

This is possibly true. A common misconception about Bitcoin is that they'd be anonymous. This isn't true, Bitcoin is a pseudonymous currency. It's not anonymous in any sense, all transactions are publicly recorded (into something called the blockchain). So if someone puts an address in and I pay them the fact that I've paid them is visible to anyone who cares to check. Of course, if we didn't choose to make the address public and dealt privately people wouldn't know who to associate with that payment. Nevertheless, the payment itself would still be publicly visible.


The average person is not going to put real money into a product they have never heard of, and those who are tech savvy enough to know what bitcoin is, either know how to obtain free porn, or you are going to have problems with being scammed/ being recorded.


Hackers are able to infect computers with trojans and are able to "mine" the bitcoins doing surveys and etc.

A trojan may be an effective way to steal someone's Bitcoins, in the same way it may be an effective way to steal someone's bank account details or forum login. Trojans are bad news, and one should always keep their computer clean, especially if used for high value transactions.

Bitcoins are being mined, but the average home computer is not useful for this purpose anymore (it was the case, a few years ago, that you could mine with your computer at home). Today specialised hardware called FPGA (and probably soon ASIC) is designed specifically for the purpose of mining. A hacker having many computers at his disposal would probably be using them to send spam or such, mining Bitcoins isn't too efficient. Doing surveys has no relation to any of this that I can discern.

I know some companies will change them out but you say you want us to use bitcoins to see for ourselves how it works. So where could we buy goods that would be useful to us?

"conversion can mean pizza takes up to 80 minutes to be delivered."

"A medium pizza with two toppings costs about 0.71 bitcoins (12).

Paying via the digital currency also adds a 0.09 bitcoin (1.50) premium to the price of a pizza to convert the digital money to real dollars. "

So roughly $16.08 plus the conversion charge is $18.20 for a medium pizza.

And Im more concerned with paying rent, utilities, and such. The currency is useless to me if I can't pay the important things I need.

I understand that =p That's not what I was implying. I was intending to make the point that, in order for bitcoin to become more popular, it will need to be useful to others. If I can only purchase things like pizza, I certainly don't see the point in wanting to further my involvement wit this new currency once my bitcoin is spent. I know someone tried out a cam site for girls that used bitcoins as the currency. I am bringing this point up to you because I know you said your trying to promote bitcoins in a positive light so since no one else has posted yet I am posting my personal concerns as well as others I have read.

This thread was moved to the promos sections and others won't be very likely to see it so I will also link it to the bitcoins thread to see if anyone else has any concerns they would like answered since you are very willing to answer our questions. I do appreciate that =) I hope you understand my questioning your motives. You are a new poster and this is your first post. That is what 99% of spammers and scammers do here.

If it helps anything, here's a post discussing roughly that : What are the Bitcoin market drivers ? (http://polimedia.us/trilema/2012/what-are-the-bitcoin-market-drivers/). If you look at that graph, most people use it as a store of value, because of the no inflation characteristic. An economy is slowly growing around that core, but it is in fact haphazard growth in random directions.


I know someone tried out a cam site for girls that used bitcoins as the currency. I am bringing this point up to you because I know you said your trying to promote bitcoins in a positive light so since no one else has posted yet I am posting my personal concerns as well as others I have read.

Hey, that's great.

A cam site paid in Bitcoins may or may not work. There is certainly room for someone experienced and entrepreneurial to try it out, but it wouldn't be a turnkey 1-2-3 sort of thing. Besides, it'd probably be wiser to offer Bitcoin as an option rather than try and go Bitcoin-only. There are Bitcoin processors (like Bitpay) that allow you to offer Bitcoin as a payment option to your customers but be paid directly in dollars.

If you arrive at sw as a representative of bitcoins then how you present yourself is a salient factor.

Your thread got moved out of camming connection for two reasons. The first reason is that your OP was flippant, sarcastic and unprofessional. Honestly, be grateful that Diamond et al. were willing to enage with you, because the way you initially presented yourself and bitcoins in your initial post did your cause no favors. No one here is interested in get involved in your boss's issues on other forums. No one in camming connection cares that individuals involved in bitcoins tarnished the reputation of the product through their behaviour on our forum. Your boss's desire to redeem the reputation of his product has nothing to do with us, and nothing to do with camming.

Secondly, if you actually read the previous threads about bitcoins wherein members engaged in meaningful discussions about the risks vs rewards of bitcoins, you'd understand that bitcoins are of very little use to the vast majority of cam chicas, at this point at least. As such, your thread isn't/wasn't relevant to camming connection. Further, we don't allow any actual industry reps to promote themselves in camming connection, even those who offer services directly related to our work. The fact that you have a pink ribbon doesn't change that.

Anyone who uses bitcoins would be a fool not to thoroughly research the payment option before using it, that goes for any payment system. As such, you're asking each person who takes you up on your offer to devote valuable time to thoroughly researching bitcoins in exchange for 1 free bitcoin. Some chicas may find $25-$30 for hours of work to be an appealing offer, but since what you're proposing is more paid PR than anything related to camming, your thread was moved to the appropriate section.

I'm not a representative of Bitcoin and I'd hope I didn't give that impression. In fact, because of its very nature Bitcoin cannot have a representative in the first place, and if anything I'd advise regarding anyone claiming to be a representative of Bitcoin with a lot of caution - it'd be not much different from claiming to be a representative of rain or something like that.


Your thread got moved out of camming connection for two reasons. The first reason is that your OP was flippant, sarcastic and unprofessional.

I'm not particularly concerned with it getting moved. As I said before, if this is where it belongs all the better, sorry for not starting it here in the first place, I went by "where the other thread was".

I guess if you want to take a strict view of things that's all correct.

I did read the one I mentioned in the OP. Someone mentioned such thereads in the plural earlier, but when I asked if there's more they didn't follow up and so I let the matter drop. If indeed there's any I missed I'd appreciate you pointing them out, thanks.

Sounds to me like a comfortable if preconceived notion. Nothing wrong with sticking to preconceived notions, but please don't ask me to accept yours any more than I'm asking you to accept mine.

I have no idea what a pink ribbon even is.


Further, we don't allow any actual industry reps to promote themselves in camming connection, even those who offer services directly related to our work. The fact that you have a pink ribbon doesn't change that.

I'm really not here to promote anything. I understand this is hard to believe, and that's fine. But to put things in perspective, the situation is something like this : the rep of Boeing comes by a forum where car mods discuss lubricants and a certain type of lubricant used by Boeing is being talked into the ground by some completely inept nutjob. I guess the car forum may have a policy against "promoting themselves", but the notion that the Boeing rep is there to promote Boeing is out of whack. Even if he's a rep, and even if he's discussing a type of oil which his corp uses / give away some free samples so the various car people can have some fist hand fun with professional grade lubricant. It may not be apparent to you but that's pretty much an accurate summary of the situation here.



Anyone who uses bitcoins would be a fool not to thoroughly research the payment option before using it, that goes for any payment system.

Certainly.


As such, you're asking each person who takes you up on your offer to devote valuable time to thoroughly researching bitcoins in exchange for 1 free bitcoin. Some chicas may find $25-$30 for hours of work to be an appealing offer, but since what you're proposing is more paid PR than anything related to camming, your thread was moved to the appropriate section.

There's a difference between using a payment option and getting free stuff. You don't have to research anything in order to get fifty Beenz in the mail. If you want to play Diablo 3 you might want to research it. If you have to buy Diablo 3 you might want to research it. In order to get fiddy Diablo 3 golds you don't need to research anything at all.

But anyway, to put everyone at ease : this offer is now closed, mostly because I don't have the time/patience to handle this apparently very needy forum. Who knew giving away stuff to strippers is going to turn into some sort of criminal case, seriously now.

^^^^I know, right?

If it wasn't so insulting I'd get a kick out of these bitcoin-related people (who want us to use bitcoins but aren't affiliated with bitcoins) who treat us, our forum and our work with such disrespect.

It's not like we haven't discussed the issue before here, as anyone who actually bothered to do a bit of research before approaching their target audience would find. It's not like we take our work and our money seriously.

Funnily enough, I'd be the perfect target audience for this pitch (if it was actually a pitch to cam chicas instead of a paid PR offering, I mean). The vast majority of my customers are my own, I can and do send them to any payment processor I choose. Why I'd want to waste time explaining bitcoins to multiple customers each day is beyond me. Let's say it takes 15 per customer to explain bitcoins. That's hours of out my day. Every day.

Another point: there's potential security issues with bitcoins, and I don't understand the system enough to understand those issues or how to prevent them. Thus I don't have full confidence in recommending bitcoins to my guys who trust me to not fuck them over. I've worked hard to gain and maintain a base of customers who respect and trust me enough to use the payment options I recommend. Why would I want to jeopardize that on an as-of-yet unproven payment option?

I'm not even going to bother delving into the stability of the currency or why I'd want to gamble $1000's each month (even assuming I only sent only a small percentage of my guys to bitcoins to minimize risk). Many of us have written all of the above and more here on sw before and if they can't bother to read it and address our concerns then that's on them.

I think the OP's last comment in her last post sums up the situation nicely. We're not approached as professionals here because we're simply a bunch of 'strippers'. Great attitude to have on a sex worker forum. Since we're sex workers there's apparently no need to treat us like business women, and since we're not perceived as busines women why would these people bother to present a professional pitch? I feel kinda naive that I couldn't figure that out until now, the question of why these bitcoin-related people approach us like we're flighty fools who should be dazzled by some shiny new option.

I would never get involved in anything recommended by someone who doesn't respect or understand my business.

Totally agree with you LS.

Also, even if you didn't need to spend time educating customers (say you still used your preferred payment processor for regs) and then just accepted BC as an alternative payment, then you have customers that were using Bitcoins before and now use them for cam shows/content. Doing just a quick Google search reveals what most of these people are using them for, and that's not exactly most girl's target market I would think!

As far as the actual Bitcoins go, I think they are super interesting and the whole "Dark web" aspect as well. They are interesting for the same reason that I watch prison shows and documentaries about serial killers... if that says anything.

What I don't understand about the OP and other BC people is why are they here trying to get us to use Bitcoins, especially if there's no financial motive?
...Since obviously we're a bunch of dumb strippers and can't understand why this new payment is just oh-so-great and life changing.

A whole lotta words

This last post made me realise what was making me feel skeevy. She's using PUA techniques: she's acting like she's not interested in the debate, there's a few negs sprinkled in there and when interest isn't apparent she pulls the offer away to make us feel like we've missed out. It's just... bizarre.

This is her "bosses" blog: http://polimedia.us/trilema/2013/i-have-no-idea-why-rape-is-against-the-law-while-marketing-is-not/

Also, "Who knew giving away stuff to strippers..." wow, just wow. So glad I missed this thread at the time.

All seems like a lot of work for ONE bitcoin. I realize the conversion rate is huge, but really... our time in valuable and spending the time to read this thread, research the company, figure out bitcoins, request the funds, and then convert them to $$... it just doesn't make any sense!

I have been Very active in the Bitcoin community for some time now. The community is all about openness and sharing. people do give away's with different coins every day
there was nothing out of the ordinary here. The way you girls are acting is very disappointing. It makes us all look ignorant and uneducated.


At today's market value those Bitcoins would have been worth 800.00 to 1000.00 dollars a piece. Probably worth more than a majority of you make in one week.
As for Converting Bitcoin to USD it is as easy as using PayPal or any Money services that you girls currently use. There is nothing complicated or time consuming about it.


I thought most of you all would have come around about Bitcoin already.We are still in the early adoption phase and there is still room to make a fortune off of bitcoin.
I have made a great deal from bitcoin and I am using my money to start a Few company's based on Bitcoin and other online currency's.


For starters I have created My own online currency like Bitcoin Called Cubits more information can be found here >https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=345328.0
I have also started a online Auction house in collaboration with a Developer, Called Bitbay where people can buy and sell new and used goods for online currency.
The website will launch some time next month. I also have my own Cam site with built in casino currently in development Called SnatchBox.


I am not trying to brag or boast. I am trying to show you that there are allot of positive things about Bitcoin that out way the negative.
The demographic of the average Bitcoin user is well educated males ages 18 - 50 usually techies,Investors, Programmers, webdesign, coders, electronics engineers.
Not Drug dealers, hitmen and child molesters like the news and other outlets would have you think.


There is a great forum Called www.bitcointalk.org. This is where I advertised my shows networked and learned allot about Bitcoin and the community.

we're a bunch of dumb strippers and can't understand why this new payment is just oh-so-great and life changing.

I'm curious whether anything has changed in the last two years.


Short story : Post a Bitcoin address, I will send you one Bitcoin. No questions asked, no strings attached. I don't want anything in return whatsoever. The only qualifier is that you must have at least 146 thanks to your forum name. This offer is limited, I'll make a post when no further Bitcoins are available.

If you don't know how to obtain an address, probably the simplest way is by visiting blockchain.info (http://blockchain.info/) and clicking the Wallet tab up right. An address looks something like 1Fx3N5iFPDQxUKhhmDJqCMmi3U8Y7gSncx or something like that (always starts with 1blabla).

I'd like to reopen the offer.

Obviously Holly now has 153 thanks, but other than that the deal's the same except that the offer is now limited to the first qualifying address posted. I'm no MP. I don't even have a PR!
