    Did you use OKPAY to buy Bitcoin?

    You can try and sell them here, but I am not sure if there are enough interest over those kinds of funds because there might be issues with fears of chargeback. Though I think you can find someone interested in it at the currency and exchange section. Try to post a request there

    Bitcoin Bike-sharing?

    You could write an email to one of the operators that work in your city. I'm sure if there was enough support for BTC adoption then they'd implement it. The only issue I could see them having is with the delay of unconfirmed transactions and needing the hikes to be released immediately.

    Beware of "Antminer reseller" on Facebook.

    This is the exact thing and should not really be surprised.

    Number of connections

    I have misread your earlier post. I thought you were asking about setting up 1 connection higher than the default 8 connections. Note that, you are a full node only if you have at least 8 active connections. Setting that to 1 doesn't make sense actually and the qt wallet wouldn't function as a...

    A couple of questions regarding Schnorr MuSig algorithm math notation

    I believe that it does not matter what you hash as long as you use the same algorithm for verification too. Meaning during verification if you calculated c by hashing (msg + R) you do the same thing again which I do since I use the same value for c that was already calculated! By the way the...
