2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / NFT, is it a fad or is there more to it? on: January 22, 2021, 03:20:22 AM
Hey community members, I hope you're doing well. I have been seeing NFTs getting more and more popular these days and from what I understand it's a form of non-fungible tokens on Ethereum blockchain, and in most cases it's some form of digital art. Is this the right understanding?

Every time I hear about NFT, I wonder to myself, is this a fad? I mean I don't get the appeal. If I buy a physical art, I can hang it on the wall, store it physically, and showcase it to others without going through much hassle. I also feel that physical forms of art retain their value really well and even increase in value over time.

I love that NFTs make it quite simple to prove and transfer ownership of the art pieces without much effort, but then again it's all digital art pieces on a blockchain and anyone can replicate them, albeit the non-original pieces will have a non-original hash verifiable as inauthentic but works if your intention is to just display the art digitally. I can't seem to wrap my mind around why anyone would want to collect these NFT pieces. To me, the only use case for NFT I see is getting NFT combined with physical art. That way you can enjoy best of the both worlds, but maybe that's just me.

So my question to those who deal with or collect NFT is, can you please explain to me what the real appeal of NFT is?

Those who don't understand NFTs well are also welcome in this discussion. I am sure we can all get some learning out of this thread whether you are pro NFT or not for NFT. I for one am in neither camps and would love to broaden my horizons.

Looking forward to getting some comments and having a good discussion around NFTs.
3  Economy / Collectibles / WTB: "Bitcoin Obituaries" Art by CryptoArt on: January 10, 2021, 06:53:52 PM
Hi folks,

Does anyone here have one that they are looking to sell? Preferably looking for the small size.

Or know of someone who I can buy it from. I see it's sold out on CryptoArt.

Appreciate any leads. Thanks!
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Restoring an old 'wallet.dat' file on: January 10, 2021, 02:15:16 AM
Hi all,
I am trying to restore this old 'wallet.dat' file that I found under an old backup and when I try to import it in Bitcoin QT (Windows) it keeps failing with this error:

Strangely enough the file is saved under the name 'bitcoin.dat' which I think I might have renamed it to label it properly.

The file is from 2012-2013 if that's of any help. And the file size is "80.0 KB (81,920 bytes)". Does anyone know how I can restore it?

I also have a backup for an old Multibit wallet, file extension ".wallet" (Sized 137 bytes (137 bytes)). Which wallet can I use to restore it? I tried Googling a bit and none of the results I found were helpful.

I am like 99% sure I already sweeped these a few years back and just want to make sure I am not leaving anything behind.

Would appreciate any help on this.
5  Bitcoin / Project Development / - Real-time BTC <-> USD price conversion tool on: January 02, 2021, 07:49:30 AM
Hi all,

I wanted to experiment with this new UI library I've been playing with lately and thought why not create a new BTC price conversion tool.

It's a pretty lightweight app. Fetches price data from Coinbase API and converts BTC to USD prices and vice versa. Page also shows some additional details like market cap, volume, and BTC supply in addition to price.

I've also added a "night mode" because I like dark modes better. Just click "night mode" in footer and it should change to the dark mode. You can toggle back and forth.

On the technical side, it's created using React + NextJS + Chakra UI, hosted on Vercel. If you notice any performance issues, it's not me, it's Vercel I promise.  Grin

Feel free to use it. And let me know if you have any feedbacks or suggestions. I will keep the site up and running and will keep adding new features as time permits.

Thanks for reading, I am looking forward to hearing what you all have to say. Open to any feedbacks, negative or positive.

Edit: Just wanted to add that I had been having some issues with the registrar in regards to nameservers today, it seems to be fixed now, but if the website doesn't load for you I apologize. Give it a couple hours and it should load.
6  Other / Meta / Suggestion to add support for 2FA/MFA on: December 27, 2020, 06:28:36 PM
Is there any reason why Bitcointalk still doesn't have support for users enabling 2FA/MFA (two factor authentication / multi factor authentication)? I have seen many Bitcointalk accounts getting compromised over the years and those accounts are then used for malicious activities. I believe a lot of that could be avoided if Bitcointalk added support for members to add an additional factor of authentication in from of Google Authenticator or some other way.

There already exist mods for SMF (the forum software Bitcointalk uses) that make integration of two factor authentication very simple, such as this one:

I understand next gen version of Bitcointalk is in the works, but I feel something this simple shouldn't take too much work for theymos/administration team. Even adding a PIN in addition to the password would be somewhat helpful in my opinion, if adding 2FA/MFA is too much work.

Please give this suggestion a thought. I am sure many members here would be on board to add multi factor authentication to their accounts to add an additional layer of security.

7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Let's talk about Monero on: December 26, 2020, 07:31:46 PM
Hi all,

What is your opinion on Monero (or other privacy based currencies)? Do you think it's a worthwhile investment, and could it gain more real world usage in future when economies collapse, and governments start putting other currencies under more surveillance? Would we see people who value their privacy more move towards using a currency with privacy as a core feature, such as Monero?

There is another side to that argument as well. The value of Monero could very well collapse if the governments start cracking down on exchanges supporting Monero, causing a stigma around using Monero, leading to an eventual collapse in its usage and market value.

I could also see people being so fed up of their governments f'ing them over every chance they get, and we could see more and more people move towards using Monero. I highly doubt this would happen though. Most people are sheep and rarely if ever will they stand up against their governments.

I am usually not very big on alt coins, however I consider Monero one of the most innovative crypto currency projects, perhaps next only to Bitcoin.

With that said, I am still not certain whether Monero would be a viable long term investment given how governments are so against their citizens having privacy in any areas of life, and I could see them banning use of Monero.

Would love to hear what your opinions are on this. This thread is not about price speculation, rather to discuss whether Monero has potential for future growth and what challenges it could face (legal or otherwise).

Have a good day y'all and chip in if you have anything to add!
8  Economy / Currency exchange / Selling 7 BTC at BitStamp price (accepting MoneyGram) on: December 23, 2014, 04:41:17 AM
I'm looking to sell 7 BTC at the current BitStamp rate for MoneyGram cash.
I'm also open to use an escrow. Buyer pays the MG transfer fee (usually $20 or so).
9  Economy / Digital goods / [WTS] Domain Name: + Extras on: August 08, 2014, 07:08:22 PM
As the title says, I'm selling the domain name "".

I think this domain is quite good if you intent to start a counter-strike based gaming community, this was actually one of my plans but I rather went with a domain which would be suitable for a multi-game gaming community.

If you plan to start a counter-strike related gaming clan/community with this then I can also host server(s) on my dedicated server for you for a very cheap price (around $0.50/slot per month or something like that, could be a little higher for CS:S or CS:GO) and give you full access to the servers (FTP account and a gamepanel account in order to manage the server easily).

I would also be able to install mods (deathmatch, gungame, deathrun, jailbreak, etc.) on your server(s) for a small fee and also set up a forum for your community.

I'm mainly looking for offers on the domain name because I currently don't have a set price on this. And I'm currently only accepting payment in Bitcoin or Litecoin but I might also be able to accept some other well known alt coins.
