1  Other / Beginners & Help / [Question/Help!] Bitcoin Transaction Fee Discrepancy on: May 10, 2023, 11:57:26 AM
Yo, folks!

The transaction fee displayed from my wallet, Mycelium to be specific, is not even close to what is shown from the Mempool. I wonder why? Can anyone enlighten me regarding this? The difference is up to 5x what is shown in the Mempool.
The lowest high priority in Mycelium fee starts around $27 while in the Mempool, it is currently at ~$12.

Is it just a UI bug? An updated data?
I just checked my current version, so I can confirm that it is up-to-date.
Am I just missing something?

I wanted to ask Mycelium support however AFAIK they do not have any support OR if there is any, I doubt that I will get any response.  That's why I asked here. TIA!

Pardon the dumb question.
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin ATMs in UK Declared as Illegal on: March 12, 2022, 11:54:38 AM
So, I just seen 1 post from a FB page regarding this, and then tried to see if it was true...

Just yesterday, 11th of March, Bitcoin ATMs are declared illegal in the UK by their regulator Financial Conduct Authority or the FCA.  They said that the owners of these machines should stop operating or else they will be sanctioned.

As of writing this post, there are 70 Bitcoin ATMs/Tellers in United Kingdom based from the data on Coin ATM Radar.

I was just wondering, how will these kind of actions by some regulatory body affects bitcoin and its value? Any thoughts?

5  Other / Beginners & Help / Eterbase Exchange Hacked, Don't Leave Your Funds on Any Exchange! on: September 11, 2020, 12:11:28 PM
Most of the time we encounter advices that we should not leave our funds on any exchanges as it is at always at risk of being stolen. But are you following it?
Don't leave your funds unless you are actively trading on that exchange.
This is ofcourse to avoid lossing money, avoid frustrations and to avoid wasting time thinking and doing something to recover the money.

An Slovakian Cryptocurrency exchage, Eterbase was recently hacked for about $5.4 million.

Eterbase said that the hackers successfuly accessed and stole funds from the Hot wallets(bitcoin, ethereum, algo, ripple, tezos, and tron) that the exchange is using for outgoing and incoming exchange operations.

Investigations are currently ongoing regarding the hacking incident as they tracked where hacked funds was sent.
The large amount of hacked funds where sent at  Binance, Huobi Global and Hitbtc. Eterbase already requested to them to freeze such funds.
Eterbase said that they have enough funds to do their obligations on their exchange investors.

I hope this one gives you some thoughts to avoid leaving money on any exchanges. Be careful!

6  Bitcoin / Mycelium / BTC Segwit Address Changed (Mycelium) on: September 01, 2020, 08:56:33 AM
Hi guys!

I just wanted to ask for a clarication regarding this... I am new on using BTC segwit wallets, and earlier today, I noticed that my segwit address changed (Native).
I initially know that some wallets generates new addresses everytime the address receives funds, this process is done so the transaction history will not be easy to track.
We can also still use the same address even our wallet's btc segwit wallet is changed.

I just don't know if it is also the case on Mycelium wallet... Is it?
And... can I still use the the previous address that I used to receive payments?

Just asking for clarifications because I heared some issues about Mycelium before.

7  Local / Pamilihan / NOW Telecom Plans Public Listing on: August 27, 2020, 10:55:51 AM
Mukhang magiging okay okay yung internet services dito sa Pinas katagalan, madaming magagandang balita nitong mga nakaraan tungkol sa 5G upgrades at 3rd telcom na DITO.
Then ngayon naman, nagpaplano si NOW Telecom na magpublic listing (either sa Pilipinas o overseas).
The telco, which holds a Congressional franchise to build and operate telecoms networks in the country, has said that rather than undertaking a traditional initial public offering (IPO), it will instead opt for a Listing by Way of Introduction (LBI) – i.e. listing shares without a lengthy underwriting/public offer undertaking and instead securing bourse approval of its LBI listing following which stock is automatically listed and immediately starts trading.

Base sa nabasa ko, aim nito na makalikom ng funds para maachive yung plano niila na mag upgrade narin sa 5G.
And they claimed to deliver internet speed up to 20Gbps.
Di ako masyadong pamilyar sa sa telcom na to pero sana maging maganda service nila.

Hi guys, there was a newly created thread today. And I noticed that his entire thread was translated using an automation. This is from Arabic to English translation.
Is this kind of translation allowed?

User: Magd solieman  

I will quote his translations and the translated paragraphs:

"His" translation:
In this topic, we'll dive into the most common types of scams in the cryptocurrency market, and hopefully, this will protect our readers from unwanted risks.

1- Lack of responsibility
One of the common types of fraud in the cryptocurrency market is the result of negligence. Often this happens due to the low level of responsibility and the lack of strict regulation by the authorities. Although the freedom afforded to entrepreneurs allows them to realize the most daring ideas, it also increases the risk of ignoring business essentials such as control and security.
The most famous example of criminal negligence in the crypto industry is the case of Mt. Gox, the platform, is popular in its first market start. However, the lack of knowledge of central finance majors, along with attachments, resulted in the loss of 650,000 BTC case-to-millions of dollars in debt and criminal prosecution of the podium Mark Karbilis. The image appears in the image that appears in the image.
في هذه المقالة ، سنتعمق في أكثر أنواع الاحتيال شيوعًا في سوق العملات المشفرة ، ونأمل أن يحمي ذلك قراءنا من المخاطر غير المرغوب فيها.

قلة المسؤولية
أحد أنواع الاحتيال الشائعة في سوق العملات الرقمية ناتج عن الإهمال. يحدث هذا في كثير من الأحيان بسبب تدني مستوى المسؤولية وعدم وجود تنظيم صارم من قبل السلطات. على الرغم من أن الحرية الممنوحة لرجال الأعمال تسمح لهم بتحقيق أكثر الأفكار جرأة، إلا أنها تزيد أيضًا من خطر تجاهل اساسيات الأعمال مثل التحكم و الأمن.

أشهر مثال على الإهمال الإجرامي في صناعة التشفير هو حالة Mt. Gox ، منصة، تحظى بشعبية في اول بداية السوق. في ذلك الوقت ، أدى نقص المعرفة بالتخصصات المالية والخبرة الإدارية ، إلى جانب عدم الرغبة في حل المشكلات الأمنية وتزوير الأرقام ، إلى فقدان 650.000 BTC من أموال المستخدمين بسبب عمليات اختراق مزعومة. أدت القضية إلى ديون بملايين الدولارات وملاحقة جنائية لرئيس المنصة مارك كاربيليس. بالطبع ، تغيرت الصناعة كثيرًا منذ ذلك الحين ، ولكن مع تبسيط نقطة الدخول إلى السوق ، لا يزال احتمال مواجهة مثل هذه المواقف كبيرًا.

تبديل بطاقة SIM
SIM card replacement is a popular way to gain access to your valuable encrypted accounts, since most security checks, like email and two-factor authentication, are associated with a mobile phone number.

Thus, on November 14, 2019, the Massachusetts County Courthouse convicted fraudsters who managed to steal more than $ 550,000 of encrypted business accounts by transferring a mobile phone number through the operator from a “broken / lost” SIM card to their newly created account. The victims of the attackers were major cryptocurrency traders and the Bitcoin ATM network.
تبديل بطاقة SIM
يعد استبدال بطاقة SIM طريقة شائعة للوصول إلى حساباتك المشفرة الثمينة، نظرًا لأن معظم فحوصات الأمان ، مثل البريد الإلكتروني والمصادقة الثنائية ، مرتبطة برقم هاتف محمول.

وهكذا ، في 14 نوفمبر 2019 ، أدانت محكمة مقاطعة ماساتشوستس المحتالين الذين تمكنوا من سرقة أكثر من 550،000 دولار من حسابات الأعمال المشفرة عن طريق تحويل رقم الهاتف المحمول من خلال المشغل من بطاقة SIM “مكسورة / مفقودة” إلى حسابهم الذي تم إنشاؤه حديثًا. كان ضحايا المهاجمين من اهم متداولين  العملات الرقمية وشبكة أجهزة الصراف الآلي للبيتكوين.

Bounzi Enterprises
Good old-fashioned investment scams, which enrich large investors at the expense of new users, regularly appear in the cryptocurrency market and are very popular, especially in Asia.
In December 2019, the organizers of the BitClub mining pool were arrested and charged with fraud, for $ 700 million. The attorney general claimed that he invested in the company's shares in exchange for substantial earnings - the company offered to invest in computing power and in mining, and provided investors with false information about mining income and an unprecedented and promising income.
مشاريع البونزي
تظهر عمليات الاحتيال الاستثمارية القديمة الجيدة، التي تثري كبار المستثمرين على حساب المستخدمين الجدد، بانتظام في سوق العملات المشفرة و تحظى بشعبية كبيرة، خاصة في آسيا.

في ديسمبر 2019 ، تم اعتقال منظمي تجمع التعدين المعروف بشبكة BitClub واتهموا بالاحتيال ، بمبلغ 700 مليون دولار. اِدعى المدعي العام عليهم انه استثمر في أسهم الشركة مقابات ايرادات كبيرة – عرضت الشركة الاستثمار في قوة الحوسبة و في التعدين ، وزودوا المستثمرين بمعلومات كاذبة حول دخل التعدين ودخل غير مسبوق وواعد

"His" translation:
Falsification of reports
On June 19, 2020, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) froze the assets of a private fund investing in digital currencies, which offered investors shares in the company. To attract new investors, the fund falsified financial statements and audit documents, indicating deeply inflated profits. For example, they reported profits of 100.77% and 92.9% for the third and fourth quarter of 2019 rather than admitting that they had already incurred losses. Investors lost tens of millions of dollars. The Securities and Exchange Commission investigation into this case is still ongoing.
تزوير التقارير
في 19 يونيو 2020 ، جمدت لجنة الأوراق المالية والبورصات الأمريكية (SEC) أصول صندوق خاص يستثمر في العملات الرقمية، و الذي عرض على المستثمرين أسهمًا في الشركة. لجذب مستثمرين جدد ، قام الصندوق بتزوير البيانات المالية ووثائق المراجعة المزورة ، مما يشير إلى أرباح مبالغ فيها للغاية. على سبيل المثال ، أفادوا عن أرباح بلغت 100.77٪ و 92.9٪ للربع الثالث والرابع من عام 2019 بدلاً من الاعتراف بأنهم تكبدوا خسائر بالفعل. وبلغت خسائر المستثمرين عشرات الملايين من الدولارات. ولا يزال تحقيق لجنة الأوراق المالية والبورصات في هذه القضية جاريًا.

"His" translation:
Better to be safe
Yes, the cryptocurrency market is very attractive, but it is not called the "Wild West" for no reason - in the absence of regulation it is the best trap for people looking for ways to enrich themselves quickly, including those who want to get rich at your own expense. The times you least expect. Of course, when choosing a company, platform, portfolio, service, partner or fund, you should give preference to full transparency, a positive reputation, and certain guarantees. However, with strict adherence to security measures, the use of extra precautions, and analysis, the cryptocurrency market is still a unique place in the IT industry, where the ability to make fortune through speculation parallels the potential for making the incredible things happen.
من الأفضل أن تكون آمناً من آسفاً
نعم ، إن سوق العملات المشفرة جذاب للغاية، ولكن لا يطلق عليه اسم “الغرب المتوحش” بدون سبب – في غياب التنظيم فهو المصيدة الافضل للاشخاص الذين يبحثون عن طرق لإثراء أنفسهم بسرعة ، بما في ذلك أولئك الذين يريدون أن يصبحو اغنياء على نفقتك الخاصة ، في الأوقات التي لا تتوقعها على الأقل. بالطبع ، عند اختيار الشركة أو المنصة أو المحفظة أو الخدمة أو الشريك أو الصندوق ، يجب أن تعطي الأفضلية للشفافية الكاملة والسمعة الإيجابية وضمانات معينة. ومع ذلك ، مع الالتزام الصارم بالإجراءات الأمنية ، واستخدام الاحتياطات الإضافية، والتحليل، لا يزال سوق العملات الرقمية مكانًا فريدًا في صناعة تكنولوجيا المعلومات، حيث تكون القدرة على تحقيق ثروة من خلال المضاربة متوازية مع إمكانية جعل أشياء لا تصدق تتحقق.

10  Other / Beginners & Help / Reminder: There Is No Such Thing As Easy Money on: August 10, 2020, 02:42:58 PM
Hello! Just a reminder guys Smiley

Recently, I've seen a lot of people engaging on websites or applications that are offering moneys for such an easy work. They use different payment method such as paypal, Bitcoin, altcoins, Visa, Western Union, etc.

Mostly, these "companies" are requiring it's users to refer people as much as they can. And they are claiming that they will pay their users for every referral they made.
The payment is huge actually, for just referring anyone. And they use is as bait to even make fool of more and more people(the more, the merrier).
We say that you decided to continue working on these sites... then you've reached the minimum payout! (Your excited ofcourse, it's a big money). In the end they will not pay you Smiley
They will not allow you to withdraw! (in the first place they really won't and they really can't). Because they are scam!

Most of them will require you to pay something "for you to be able to withdraw your funds". But once you do, nothing will change. You just gave them your money.
You've wasted your time, your effort, and your money! Plus, you will feel guilty on people you've invited (those who believed you).

If don't ever send money on this kind of "business". It is SCAM. Do not be fooled and do not waste your money.
You might seen some testaments on their websites saying that they already paid out, deposited then successfully withdrawn the money, etc...
Do not fall for it because those testaments are fake!!

You will notice also from scam websites that they uses the same UI but has different name. Just changing their name... stay away from these!

Also... remember not to use emails connected to your social media accounts and financial accounts. Do not recycle passwords.
You can't trust sites like these, they can phish your information. Eventually you'll be hacked and they will steal something from you if they found your details valuable!

Here's some example:

Completely the same User Interface, different name.

To "withdraw", you need to refer 40 people. LOL Grin

They will lead you to an investment scam whereas you will be forced(if you continue) to buy referrals from "other users"(which are fake).
They will ask you to deposit money to a bitcoin address as payment.
Nothing will happen even you send your money there, your money will just be gone.

Read also:

please note that not all referral programs are legit/scams. It will depend on what platform/sites/companies. So, once more, be smart and careful when going to join such a program. Never only follow other people only. You must have willing also to analyze the referral programs by yourself. If you have often joined in the referral program, you must know how to get more people to join by your referral codes but not making them fool about the high promise.

I don't know why scams like this still exist. I wonder, is there still a lot of people who've fall for this?

You underestimate how many people use the internet. This may be old news for us, but a new user could easily see it as an opportunity. Look at it this way: I'm sure many, if not all of us, know a handful of people who believe everything on the internet is real -- these same people are the prime targets.

It would be a total waste of time if I continued with it. Like I said here before, I was scammed twice during the peak of quarantine period. Glad I didn't make it thrice. Lesson learned? If it's too good to be true, it probably is. Funny I always say that here but I forgot when it's most necessary to remember it.

If some would wanna see a current scam in Philippines, I made it in bilingual yet had it most in english to be readable and understandable by anyone.
Here's my thread: Nauusong "easy-money"

If you use some sort of reverse image tool (Google Image, TinyEye, etc.), the referenced sites are indeed used as part of a widespread set of sites with different names (some are defunct, some running): TuMoney, PuMoney, EbMoney, RuMoney, poMoney, uodMoney, MyMoney, OkMoney, OiwMoney, PsiMoney, EonMoney, Bnomoney, IneMoney, UnaMoney, IwuMoney, Biqmoney, knimoney, IkMoney, ppumoney, OebMoney, etc. The list just goes on and on...

Stay safe Smiley

There is no such thing as easy money! Smiley
In gambling maybe there is! Either easy loss or easy win Wink
11  Economy / Trading Discussion / Twitter Accounts Hacked & Used to Scam People on: July 17, 2020, 04:07:48 PM
