A lady that i know just came from columbia, She smiled because i did not understand. Then she held out some marijuana, ha ha! She said it was the best in all the land.
And i said, "no, no, no, no, i don't smoke it no more, I'm tired of waking up on the floor. No, thank you, please, it only makes me sneeze, And then it makes it hard to find the door."
A woman that i know just came from majorca, spain, She smiled because i did not understand. (parazzi! Parazzi!) (ole!) Then she held out a ten pound bag of cocaine, She said it was the finest in the land.
And i said, "no, no, no, no, i don't sniff it no more, I'm tired of waking up on the floor. No, thank you, please, it only makes me sneeze, And then it makes it hard to find the door."
A man that i know just came from nashville, tennessee, oo, (oh no!) He smiled because i did not understand. Then he held out some moonshine whiskey, oh ho, He said it was the best in all the land. (and he wasn't joking!!!)
And i said, "no, no, no, no, i don't drink it no more, I'm tired of waking up on the floor. No, thank you, please, it only makes me sneeze, And then it makes it hard to find the door."
Well, i said, "no, no, no, no, i can't take it no more, I'm tired of waking up on the floor. No, thank you, please, it only makes me sneeze, And then it makes it hard to find the door."
"i'll just have another drink, barman, have you got a large brandy?"
This reminds me of the Chinese Social Credit Score system. Very bad precedent for society at large. This might be happening in SF, just because everyone there is trying to cook up every conceivable concept for an app in order to turn a buck.
I've had a few order payments arrive at LB a dollar or so short, and need to get that sorted out so I don't have to keep adding a dollar or so to the next order to make the account right. How can I tell where and why the money goes missing?
By looking at the blockchain receipt, not a penny can move in bitcoin without a public record. In your case you will very likely discover that your wallet provider is deducting the fees for sending the coins. Most wallets give you can option to add them in to the total.
I agree that's probably what's happening, but why would a wallet do that, knowing that transactions aren't "approximate in price" but "exactly the listed price"? There's plenty in my account to deduct fees to begin with. Will straighten this out with these foos. Thanks for the input.
Just checked the record, I sent $75 for a $74 order, and LB received $74.99. That's 99 cents more than the price. The order itself has the price as $74 or 0.0082 bitcoins. I'm not going to fart around with LB changing the bitcoin exchange rate between the time I order and the time my money gets here... That's not good business.
You underpaid. You actually sent 0.00807832 BTC because of the BTC fee.
Small example: you press pay at 10:00 and the amount you must pay is 0.0082 BTC, after some minutes or even seconds, the BTC price in USD changed, maybe has rised or maybe as gone down, but, you still must pay 0.0082 BTC.
BTC price fluctuates a lot and fast 24/7 unlike stock market which is regulated.
The reason why you paid ~1 USD more, is because of the fee (and BTC price went up during that time frame, but don't forget that we are actually paying in BTC and LB just does convert the amount in BTC to USD at the time you press pay) , but you actually underpaid, this means that the wallet/platform you are using, is deducting the fee from the amount you selected to send instead of adding the fee to the amount you want to send.
I advice you to buy BTC directly to the address LB gives you by using Bittylicious, you can find a little discussion about Bittylicious by clicking the link below:
What I can see from the screenshot is the order was 0.0082 there was a fee of 0.000010746 , but in screenshot on top left it shows that you sent 0.00818308 so maybe on the sending screen you got charged to use there service to send the bitcoins , so as far as I can see you put 75$ on which added to 0.082 and then the fee got taken leaves you the 0.0818308 , so to me it looks short a few cent , I don’t no all the ins and outs of it man ,
>Sorry if there is any confusion on this but the price we present on our payment page is the exact bitcoin amount due.<
Then how do vendors know what the price was at the moment the payment was made? If what you're saying is the case, vendors are receiving wildly variable payments for the same product because everyone buys at different times. When I look at the bitcoin price on the payment page, that's not the same bitcoin rate that I'm going to get when I send the money. It's going to either be more or less than what I saw when I checked the price before paying. If I see a $74 price, I can send that exact amount (within a few cents) by sending $74 using the current rate. What's to stop buyers from ordering, then watching the bitcoin rate to see if it goes down, ordering at a lower rate or simply not paying (canceling the order) if the rate goes up?
How do you explain the page from my wallet that shows I sent MORE than the advertised price? I sent more because this keeps happening. I've been adding a dollar here and there to make up for it from previous orders. It's stupid to put up 2 prices and use the one that varies every minute or so instead of the dollar price. It's bad business. I should have a dollar price to pay and it's up to me to get that dollar price to the vendor however I can. Using the bitcoin price is tantamount to speculating on the market every time you buy something. I've been on LB for years, as well as most other markets from Silk Road 2 on down, and this has never been a problem. I suspected that the wallet was taking a cut after I hit the "send" button, but you can see that their cut is taken out of my wallet balance before the money is sent. The fee price plus the amount sent doesn't equal the fixed bitcoin price anyway. Either transaxe has changed something with this vendor or the vendor messed up their price posting. The money is (and has been) getting there.
>No the bitcoin amount presented by transaxe is what you pay, you underpaid the invoice.<
If that's the case then the system is screwed. That, or you guys aren't understanding what's going on here. (Or I'm not understanding, in which case someone should explain why instead of simply parroting something unrelated.)
TX gives you a price in bitcoin, you just pay that price, not less than that because the usd equivalent has changed or because your wallet deducts fees instead of adding them.
I wouldn't overthink the potential shenanigans at the end of the day the seller can reject an order if the volatility is insane or someone is gaming, they can see every attempted order as well as the paid ones.
Check for smoke from the Vatican chimney! The pope of dopes's page is restricted, anyone know if he will be making a return soon?? He really did have the best cali on here.. and I only got a gram before he disappeared (my fault, stupid I know)
Andreas M. Antonopoulos is the most articulate and inspiring voice Bitcoin has. Despite his enormous technical expertise he sees the fundamental proposition of crytpo freedom as the lowest layer of the network.
When I read the title I thought this was about capitalism and making people dependent upon money. Instead this is about the fact that government issues currency and can use that to control everything it touches basically, it's a shocking eye opener.
