is that just a binary?

I got a "permission denied" and "command not found", respectively:

sudo /home/user/Desktop/memorycoin-qt-0.8.582

(Ubuntu 64-bit, new install)

Looks like about 3 BTC could wipe out the entire sell stack at bter...any charitable person wanna peg the price at about 2x?

Back to OP:

The voting function actually adds a great "sub-branding tool" if used for both MVTE and non-MVTE addresses.  Non-vote can be used for open quid-pro-quo / etc.  Combine with two-factor authentication.

e.g., vote for X if you want Y but you have to do Z first.  After you do Z, I will vote for you from X to "approve" / "confirm".  We'll publish on web and community can verify on blockchain.

Think of it as a sponsorship vs. partnership / registration vs. approval / "MaxPWR Presents MemoryCoin" vs. "MemoryCoin Presents MaxPWR"...

In the political sense...a sort of "buy my vote".

In the advertising sense - campaign for an idea and build a memory.

bwhaha - it's because I used bitinstant to transfer funds...maybe 2x a year know, back when there was market liquidity instead of isolated reserves with distorted prices from fiat / reserve access? 

From the web:

From Gox:

Dear valued customer,

Following the arrest of BitInstant CEO, we believe it necessary to confirm and improve the information we hold on all customers using or having used BitInstant in the past. We understand that this request may create inconveniences but we believe that this is a necessary process to enforce MtGox policy not to tolerate any illegal usages of its platform.

There's zero-access to any withdrawals - btc or fiat.  Only a "pay $300 to someone us and mail us docs and maybe we'll let you see your money in 2 us".  No real way to cut my losses....gox already cut them for me.

I really like the idea of expanding user functionality client-side like we've done with the voting...maybe even doing some separate UI / account info apps.

Ever see some programs that interface with browsers links by replacing the "http://" protocol in the address?  Can we do a browser plugin that does a "mcc://wallet:amount" and opens a separate client-side wallet interface? Plugin could rename / etc to use a client-side specific wallet.dat file.  Can we do this as a "QT commandline option to open with payment ready to send"?

This makes it sound like just some processing delays for some people:

For me, it's like Gox just "reset" my account status...which will require a buncha money to submit physical docs.  Not sure if they did that for others b/c of low reserves, etc...reserves and AML/debt access are the tricky back-end of exchanges.

For MMC, I'm thinking something like a distributed public "bank" - e.g., agran's top100 MMC site with people publicly claiming those accounts and their purpose.  Information affects markets, and info like...a site where people post "hold X MMC for Y days"... could move prices and provide network info. 

Re-start agran's top100 thread, but with people publicly claiming accounts.  Should only be self-disclosure of individuals - no hearsay or witch-hunting.  Maybe business (e.g., bter) are fair game? 

Longer MMC-days-gained for an account, the higher the possible price signal.  And the user then gains "community trust" based on "bond size." That trust or reputation can be used to overcome escrow / fraud / etc issues in person-to-person trades in an open manner.   Could be used by a site (e.g., exchange) as "public reserves" for front-end user-business in other currencies.  Accumulated stats could affect market.  Build that "trust rating" algorithm into an account (i.e., wallet) management function client-side.  Maybe make it separate from the main qt-client?

To support MAXCAT development for P2P trust-based exchange standards. send 1 Satoshi to:

MtGox "unverified" my account's AML registration.  I registered some domain names at domains4bitcoins and used the mtgox merchant check out.  Now I can't withdraw USD or BTC until I mail notarized and apostilled ID docs.  No more scanning and waiting 2 days.  An apostille requries a 6-hr round-trip to the state capital or a $300 online service fee.  To access my virtual currency in a distributed global economy...What happened?

CampBX had just added ACH bank withdrawals a few months ago.  Now their ACH and wire transfer provider has suspended service to CampBX.  BTC-e refuses to work with US banks.  The IRS has no clear tax guidance on virtual currencies.  All this pushes the economic empowerment offered by virtual currencies farther and farther away from the individual by reducing accessibility and increasing barriers to entry for the small business.

People forget about the non-MVTE voting applications in MMC.  For example, it can be used to show community support for anything the owner of the address states and valued based on community reputation.  It can be used to create and/or promote "sub-memes" or individual campaigns for community involvement within MMC.  It can also be used to show person-to-person "trust" or "approval" between individual accounts on the MMC blockchain.

I believe the MMC community should promote individual person-to-person exchanges and trades based on an individual's out-of-network trust in an address and in-network MMC network history.  I believe we can develop standard community methods to build distributed trust and overcome "scammer FUD" and chargeback issues on a person-to-person scale.

For example, never sell virtual currency over paypal.  If you buy, receive virtual first.  We all know why, someone else write a wiki guide to explain to our newbs.  But, personally, I think I would trust selling to FreeTrade in small amounts, relative to history and trust.  I "know where he lives" - on this forum.  I can vote publicly and raise a campaign to hassle him, etc.  Or, someone could make a...ahem..."security deposit" with me, and the community or I could trust them to different degrees to say...mail an R9 290x with payment upon receipt  (P2P MOD: MMC on Delivery).  If I break that trust...they have both me and Freetrade to come blame :P 

I propose a first step of posting some other ideas for "how would I trust Max with my MMC" exchange methods below.  We could maybe develop a list of "P2P trust-based" problems and methods that an MMC "KYC" web development community could employ to overcome exchange and pool weaknesses, etc.  We could assign an MMC address to vote for it and support further development - petition community development, etc.

I like the name: Max's Community Acceptable Trust Standards, or...MAXCATS :)

Reply below with ideas, or vote to show MAXCAT pride and promote community development.

I'm working with this other guy for a personal site that I'll maintain, so I can do the second longer-term part.

I'll refer him here for the first part.

Interesting. I got like a 800% network profitability for cpu over electricity based on Freetrade's data.  Maybe my math's off, or maybe that's just cpu vs. gpu in the network data throwing things off.

But longer-term, approaching electricity cost is the goal.  That stability enables some crypt-equity "clearing house" services.  What we need to develop are web and client-side services and pool diversity in the short-term.  We need to start trading for coding and web skills.

I'm working on a blog that will sponsor pools, lobby for exchanges and community projects, etc.  The non-profit and "reciprocal voting" functions support a number of business development and legal applications.  I think MMC can be used as a "launchpad" for individual business users of virtual currencies due to its focus on community development.  We need people to submit ideas, donate skills, or build a foundation in the community.

I'll probably be needing to learn basic wordpress in the next few weeks for a personal site.

I'm far from a guru, but what are you looking for?  I could probably do basic maintenance.  I also have a friend who may be more advanced depending on what you need.

I think in general we could use more infographics.

Anyone have any ideas for other topics / graphics / etc?

Even easier - some electric companies have a renewable program option.  E.g., I can buy about 150 kWhr blocks for $2.

Create a site to organize miners to purchase renewable energy blocks, submit documentation, and trade at a premium to other MMC members as "eco-mined MMC".

In fact, fungibility would let you take any non-mined exchange-bought MMC, add a receipt for a renewable energy block, and "wash" / "color" it into a greencoin...

He ended up using a web wallet instead.

This was a new install - so no blockchain/wallet.dat issues.  I'll follow up and see if I can get OS & error details.
