Martindale on Famous MMA gym "Tristar" adds bitcoin as a means of payment for products and gym fees. - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"This is awesome; good gyms / trainers are often cash-only due to the hassle that is involved in accepting anything but. See also [Roger Ver's recent tweet in support of the idea](https://twitter.com/rogerkv...). If you train BJJ, Muay Thai, or any other martial art – get together with your trainer and help guide them through the process. Bitcoin makes so much sense for this market, it's silly to _not_ be accepting it." - Eric Martindale

"This is awesome. Thanks – now if only they'll support proper XMPP eventually... I've submitted it to HackerNews, because I think they'll like it too." - Eric Martindale
Martindale on New film, "Bitcoin: Buenos Aires" -- Available Now :-) - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"You can still include the `.txt` in the root of the torrent, while simultaneously allowing the video to be streamable. Great work all around, and thanks for putting this together. Amazing stuff." - Eric Martindale
Martindale on New film, "Bitcoin: Buenos Aires" -- Available Now :-) - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Thank you _so_ much for releasing this on BitTorrent, generally the easiest way of watching a film. One minor qualm; you should release the direct `.avi` so that it can be streamed over BitTorrent, rather than [perhaps inadvertently] disabling that behavior by wrapping it in a `.zip`." - Eric Martindale

"We have released two authentication middlewares so far; [passport-bitauth](https://github.com/martind...) and [connect-bitauth](https://github.com/martind...) – both are in Javascript. What languages specifically are you looking for?" - Eric Martindale
Martindale on Announcing the New BitPay API - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Great feedback, this is exactly what we're looking for. Thanks! In the current implementation, nonces are limited in scope to the client – which we view as analogous to a single server, or a single process. In addition to preventing replay attacks, they are used to _enforce_ sequence of operations for that process. For the distributed environments we've been working with, new processes create a new keypair so they can be uniquely identified and protected against these replay attacks. I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on improving this API – if we can find a better solution, we should update [the BitAuth spec](https://github.com/bitpay...)." - Eric Martindale
Martindale on Work in progress: Bitcore 2 - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Hey, Eric with BitPay here – this is an open discussion that I'd love to hear your feedback on. Many of our projects _do_ use git rebase, while several do not – there's often cases for doing other behavior, such as explicitly preventing fast-forward merges. Can you point out some examples, and describe what you'd like to see?" - Eric Martindale

Martindale on Overstock to Pay Employee Bonuses in Bitcoin - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"BitPay employee here; for those also wanting their employers to pay in Bitcoin, just a shameless plug for [BitPay's Payroll Service](https://bitpay.com/payroll)... we run our internal payroll this way, and I've been _extremely_ pleased with how it works. Then again, I might be a touch biased. Please judge for yourselves." - Eric Martindale

Martindale on City-States: Sov Nullsec is Eighty Percent Rotten - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"In the canon, all ships have a "repulsor" type device which is what prevents them from damaging their superstructures when "bumping" into other things. Apparently in [the Malkalen Catastrophe](https://www.youtube.com/watch...), this must have been disabled. We should be able to do similar things with our own ships, _all_ ships. "Disable grav repuslors". Hell, even self-destruct – what if that acted like a last-ditch smartbomb, and did a very small amount of splash damage? Emergence is dead in EVE. We should bring it back." - Eric Martindale

Martindale on Floating Fees for 0.10 - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Payment channels take place on the blockchain, not off. They're a pre-arranged set of transactions that are exchanged between the two participants in the contract, re-signed with each update, and subsequently broadcast on the network." - Eric Martindale
Martindale on Floating Fees for 0.10 - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Payment channels are a way to sent many small payments without broadcasting many transactions (thus avoiding what would otherwise be hefty transaction fees). Essentially, rather than creating new transactions for each payment, you create _one_ transaction (a contract) and then update it (re-sign) with each [micro]payment, and only when you're done do you broadcast the completed transaction to the network." - Eric Martindale
