    If you don't own any Bitcoin yet, you can earn some BTC quickly and easily by promoting Bitcoin websites. One of the most popular sites on our network (and the easiest to earn money from) is the Bitcoin debit card.

    Please visit: http://www.BitPlastic.com/?aid=100

    Just sign up for the affiliate program to earn 40% revenue share on your referrals. Promote the site to your friends and business colleagues and get paid 40% of all fees we collect from them. You can earn a longterm Bitcoin income stream using affiliate programs.

    You can also find other Bitcoin websites to promote by googling 'bitcoin affiliate program' and choosing a Bitcoin website that appeals to you.

    One 7950 GPU card for sale. (They all sold out in Singapore) . Ping me if you want it. Brand new Never opened. Not making any money on it, just don't need too many cards that I bought. I paid around $400 SGD for it and that is what I am selling it for. 7950 are the BEST graphics cards for mining light coin. Newer boards, though more powerful, are way more power hungry and as a result , much less profitable (or non-profitable) depending how much your electricity cost.

    • Dmitry A.

      yes

      GPUs are good for scrypt-based coins (like litecoin).
      You can read more here: https://cryptocointalk...­

      The 7950 is a good card to start off with (the 7990 has more raw power, but is crazy expensive, and the 7970 is out of stock in SG, Amazon, newegg and a number of places.). As you find that it works for you, you'd eventually want to go to a 2-, 3-, or 4-GPU mining rig for LTC.

    A "Marc Faber" of cryptocoins predicts drop to $10 by mid-2014. http://www.businessinsider.com/williams-bitcoin-meltdown-10-2013-12

    • andrew w.

      Has the page name changed? Can't seem to find it. Or did it become the Mastercoin page?

      December 13, 2013

    • Dmitry A.

      Yeah. It did. There are so many bitcoin pages already. But Bitcoin will be covered as well. on it.

    Anyone with experience in helping to explain Bitcoin to the the SG Police can share some pointers? I need to explain it as part of a statement I have to make.

    December 9, 2013

    • Aaron T.

      just curious.. why do you need to make a statement?

      December 12, 2013

    • Alexander K.

  • andrew w.

    Great session yesterday.

    -
    Incidentally if anyone's looking at GPU-based mining rigs, IT distributor Convergent Systems is having a clearance sale.

    The 7970s are sold out, but they just posted an update.
    "New items are up. Club3D 7870 '13 Series. Which is, from a cursory glance at specs, a 7870 GHz edition with a non-reference cooler."

    David Can you post the MAS guidelines here also so that people doing business or investments knows the tax implications of BTC in Singapore.

    December 13, 2013

    • David M.

      GST Treatment
      ‘The sale (including the exchange) of bitcoins in return for a consideration in money or in kind is a taxable supply of services subject to GST. If the seller is a GST-registered person, he would have to account for output tax on the sale of bitcoins made in the course or furtherance of his business. ’

    Hi Tomas, can you confirm the meeting venue and timing? The attendance looks healthy with more than 50 people planning to attend. Do you think we can start the meetup earlier so we can have more time?

    If anyone's interested in getting some food before the meetup, there're about 5 of us meeting at Maxwell Food Centre (1 Kadayanallur St, Singapore[masked]) to get some grub at about 6.30pm before walking over to Mariko's. If you want to join us, just show up. I still look somewhat like my avatar, failing which you can iMessage/Whatsapp me at[masked] if you don't see me/us.

    Seeya all in a few hours.

      I would love to talk about litecoin. If this does not allow, let's talk directly.

      December 7, 2013

  • David M.

    I've been getting a lot of questions regarding wallets, which to use etc.. Perhaps a presentation on wallets, how they work, what to use when?

    November 27, 2013

    • Rick Z

      David , want to volunteer as an organiser for the group? :P I think you can put up a meet-up and charging 1 Satoshi, that will probably give you more seasoned group of participants.

      1 · December 3, 2013

    • David M.

      OK, lets discuss for a few minutes at the next meetup. try to get a core group together.

      December 3, 2013

    Hi All,

    NOTE CHANGE OF THE VENUE!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
