2.5 hours for a transaction, and still no confirmations?


2.5 hours for a transaction, and still no confirmations?

I'm looking to receive bitcoins into a wallet, and I can't for the life of me understand why it's taking so long.

How can I look into this? I can see the transaction itself when I type in the address in blockchain.info, and I did notice that it has a miner's fee of .0001.

It was sent at 1:03pm, and it's now almost 3:30pm… I'm a little concerned that no confirmations at all have taken place.

What's the deal?

For further info, the person sending me this BTC used Circle and entered a Wallet address that I gave to them.

I know this probably sounds like a very repeated question, I'm not completely new to BTC, but I don't understand why I'm having this issue.

Thanks in advance for any help and information.

EDIT Is it dangerous for me to post the wallet link?

Let’s make “The DAO”, but for Bitcoin!


Let’s make “The DAO”, but for Bitcoin!

First, the context: I was a lead developer of the colored coins project in 2012-2013, that is before it split into several different project/implementations.

in January 2014 I came up with an idea of CDAC, a colored coins-based decentralized autonomous corporation which has investing as a goal. I only shared it with few people in the colored coin community. You can find it here. It was originally written on January 26, 2014.

Then I forgot about it, until one of people I sent it to wrote me that Ethereum's The DAO is a lot like my CDAC concept.

For those who don't know, The DAO is an Ethereum-based decentralized autonomous organization which raised $146M worth of ether and is supposed to invest into various projects which are supposed to make its tokens more valuable.

Frankly, I'm kinda surprised by this, as I believe it makes more sense to raise funds for specific funds than to make one huge-ass fund. But apparently Ethereum people think otherwise…

So the question is: Does it makes sense to implement something similar for Bitcoin?

I'm quite certain it's technically possible (I can elaborate in a separate post), but I don't know if there is any demand for this kind of thing.

I think crowdfunding/fundraising in general makes a lot of sense. Mike Hearn's Lighthouse project is very underwhelming, as it has no notion of rewards. You just give money and that's it. Also I think crowdfunding will benefit a lot from 'slow release', as giving people a bulk sum is a bad idea (see: NEO&BEE).

Please give me your opinions!
