Hi.  I'm considering endowing a cash prize for contribution to the development of a reliable open-source currency.  I'll look at your work soon when I have time. 

I'm interested in an algorithm for a weighted basket of all liquid tangibles (such as those listed on Comex).  Anonymity is a concern, but shared data about pricing of all transactions is vital, and prevention of fraud and counterfeiting is primary.

Hello, great work!
Let me just say that I love the idea behind this project, and support it fully. I am very enthused on the direction this is heading and I hope more people soon realize the potential of such a service, that I am now glad to be a part of. Let's hope to see this around for a while, instead of fizzing out into the dark like some other projects I've seen start to prosper.

I never used the previous release, but .2 is working great! Downloading the blocks took a minimal amount of time(around an hour, or a little bit longer), and I had actual credits in my account within around 18 hours. After the first matured credits were complete, it's been working like clockwork ever since, generating new coins within about a half hour to an hour successively. Needless to say, I'm a bit impressed!

I understand the low limitations to these coins now, but in the future the opportunities are absolutely endless. Bravo, Bitcoin!


Also on a sidenote, Tor has been working great for my Bitcoin now. At first it has a little difficulty making connections, but Tor will retry and retry until the connection is established. Some IPs have a more difficult time than others connecting through Tor I've seen, but within a little while Tor will have retry connections and attempt new exit nodes to match you up to the proper connections and will keep those connections open. For peace of mind, I might recommend shutting down Tor completely every once in a while, as I do not think the "Use a New Identity" feature in Vidalia properly configures a new Bitcoin connection, and will most likely keep the same connection open for an extended period of time.


Anyway, here's to hoping Bitcoin stays around a while!
