1  Economy / Scam Accusations / Be Careful Of Cryptothrills Casino on: May 27, 2021, 04:48:58 PM
Several months ago, I created account with Cryptothrills because they were giving some non-deposit bonus.
I wagered with that bonus, got successful, successfully turned it to real mbtc, I was glad but to make a withdrawal I needed to make minimum 1mbtc deposit. I put it off for a while.

Fast forward now, there was deposit offer with some free spins so I decided to give it a try again. Deposited 1 mbtc and played with free spins and made a withdrawal. It didn't arrive so asked 'support', they said it requires 24 hrs. Deposit require 0 confs, but withdrawl 24 hrs, pretty cool eh?

It didn't arrive even after 24 hrs, I go to support agent again(transcript at end of post).

Now they didn't help with withdrawal but they removed the 5 mbtc earned from playing with bonus citing I asked them to, which I didn't.

The bonus he's mentioning in chat was with 1 mbtc deposit that I did recently, and I did ask them to remove it. I never asked them to remove amount earned from wagered bonus, arguing seemed futile.

It was pretty hopeless, thought let's withdraw 1 mbtc I deposited and move on. But nope, there is more. You can't withdraw unless you gamble 10x amount of your deposit, which literally means you either gamble or forget your money after you deposit there.

It was my mistake indeed, they have this 'rule' written in their t&c, they are literally forcing people to gamble.

They can remove your balances as they like, they lock you out of your funds, they force you to gamble if this doesn't scream scam, I don't what is.

I'm not sure if right sub is scam accusation or gambling discussion, but since gambling discussion seems spammy, I'm posting it here.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Argent wallet feedback required on: May 17, 2021, 04:18:39 AM
Hi,

Has anyone used argent wallet (https://www.argent.xyz/), how would you compare it's security compared to hardware wallets?
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Convert tokens to prominent currencies than holding them forever on: May 13, 2021, 05:47:20 AM
If your token is 30c a piece at $400 eth price then convert that to ether asap. Ether has more chance to rise in future than your random shit coin. Ok, it might not go dead but it would stay at same usd price or few x in usd while multiple times low in ethereum denomination because ether has rose a lot.

If that makes sense?
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Claim $6k airdrop if you used Epns before March 21 or donated on their git rnd on: April 24, 2021, 03:35:16 AM
If you used https://app.epns.io before March 21 or donated to their gitcoin grant round (6/7) you can claim 1200 push which are worth about $6k at current price.

Steps:

- visit https://app.epns.io/ and connect your wallet

Money grows on trees, but point relies on guessing where that tree would grow. That was edgy, I'm sorry Roll Eyes
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Eth gas trackers! on: April 21, 2021, 04:55:58 AM
This is a quick post for sites where you can track current gas required for your ethereum transactions.

1) Etherscan Gas Tracker: https://etherscan.io/gastracker

2) Gas Now (Personal favorite): https://www.gasnow.org/

3) Ethgas Watch: https://ethgas.watch/

4) Ethgasstation: https://ethgasstation.info/



You might be wondering, but why do we need this? Well, it's for times when one site is down or just stuck, it happens believe me, and you pay extra to replace that transaction. Or you could also use these to cross check.
6  Economy / Trading Discussion / A little sad story on: April 13, 2021, 04:46:34 AM
So I got some bonus from bybit.

I longed btc at first with 50x leverage (you do that with 'free' money), but since it was on the rise for last few days, thought it will dip and closed the long, opened short.

Got liquidated soon after.

Had I not closed the long, I would be in several double digit thousands of dollars profit today.

7  Economy / Scam Accusations / Apkpure official app breached with trojan on: April 11, 2021, 09:42:28 AM
People often use third party apps to download android apps in absence of play store, there are reasons of course, I have been guilty of doing same.

Yesterday, the popular third party android app hosting site apkpure's android app was infected with trojan.

Everyone who downloaded their official app or had auto updates turned on was fucked.

Of course, neither is Google play 100% safe but reduces the likelihood of infected apps.

8  Other / Beginners & Help / Apple is considered safe but still you gotta be careful on: April 01, 2021, 05:33:15 AM
I'm not sure if y'all aware of it but if not: https://decrypt.co/63508/fake-trezor-iphone-app-scams-user-out-of-600000-in-bitcoin

Apple is known for it's rigorous process before allowing apps to it's app store, hence people tend to get bit loose with what they are downloading.

Fake trezor app passed through apple tests, multiple people fell for it, one with 17 BTC.

Don't depend on third party for your security.
9  Economy / Scam Accusations / Scam operations using YouTube comments! on: February 26, 2021, 04:10:57 PM
This is pretty much same as discord/telegram where two people would talk nice about 'investment' opportunity to lure you into it.

These conversations would eventually lead to mention of some name and contact details (burner numbers and emails).

Here is an example, I'm not able to copy comment link so here are few screen captures,

It's SCAM, stay away from this.

12  Other / Beginners & Help / Same scammers, different tricks on: January 21, 2021, 05:03:02 AM

13  Economy / Trading Discussion / How do you deal with 'Selling early' regrets? on: January 07, 2021, 04:08:35 AM
You sell something and later down the road, that goes multifold.

How do you deal with such things in positive way?
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / A question to people who have been hodling their Bitcoins since early days on: January 07, 2021, 04:06:23 AM
Any person would sell their stash at few 'x', what factors made you keep holding it?
15  Other / Meta / How about new sub section 'Investment discussion' on: January 07, 2021, 04:00:15 AM
Not a place where one shill their tokens but rather where you can discuss strategies, what factors made your investment work, what did not, etc.

The closest thing we have now regarding this is Trading discussion, but these two things differ a lot.

I think it will be a good addition.

What are your thoughts?

17  Other / Beginners & Help / [question] Password protected qr codes with sensitive info on: December 11, 2020, 04:33:42 AM
You could create password protected qr code with sensitive info, print, laminate and keep it wherever you like, you could even keep it in open since no one would be able to access it without password known to you.

What's your opinion on this?
18  Local / Off-Topic (India) / Paytm selling mobile numbers on: December 10, 2020, 03:57:02 AM
Ok, so I was checking out life/term insurance plans on paytm. That's it, I was just checking out plans.

And since that day, I started receiving insurance spam on my number.

Is this ok?
19  Other / Off-topic / NetGuard: A Must Have App On Every Android Device on: November 17, 2020, 04:28:12 AM
Some android custom skins come with so many unnecessary bloatwares, some of them eat up your data and some of them do even worse by invading your privacy.

NetGuard comes to the rescue.

It allows you to block access to any android application, including the system ones.

For some applications it's could be bit risky to use them through WiFi, with NetGuard you can restrict data individually with Wi-Fi and/or mobile connection.

It doesn't require rooting your device either.

Using it will help you in several ways:

1) Save your data

I recently bought a miui based phone, and the time when I enable my data, my half of daily data usage got wiped out in almost half an hour. When I checked data usage, most of it was consumed by bloatwares.

After using NetGuard, it was tonned down significantly.

2) Save Battery

The less data requests sent/received, less battery usage.

3) Privacy

If you block the net access to questionable apps, there is no data being sent or received, providing you privacy.



Copy-Paste of features:

• Simple to use

• No root required

• 100% open source : Github

• No tracking or analytics

• No advertisements

• Actively developed and supported

• Android 5.1 and later supported

• IPv4/IPv6 TCP/UDP supported

• Optionally block system applications

• Optionally notify when an application accesses the internet

• Optionally record network usage per application per address

• Material design theme with light and dark theme

• Log all outgoing traffic; search and filter access attempts; export PCAP files to analyze traffic

• Allow/block individual addresses per application

• New application notifications; configure NetGuard directly from the notification

• Display network speed graph in a status bar notification

• Select from five additional themes in both light and dark version

NetGuard is too good to miss out on!
20  Other / Off-topic / How To Know When You Created Your Gmail Account on: November 16, 2020, 05:15:26 AM
If you ever get locked out of your Gmail account, knowing your account creation date can significantly increase your chances in getting your account back.



1) Welcome email:

When you register for Gmail account, Google sends you a welcome email, if you link it with other email through recovery you also get welcome mail there.

- If you registered several years prior search for:

Code:
mail-noreply@google.com


- If you registered recently, search for:

Code:
googlecommunityteam-noreply@google.com

I'm not sure how much 'recently' so just try searching for both emails. It doesn't take much effort anyway.

2) From settings:

- Go to gmail web >> Switch to desktop version >> Click on settings >> Forwarding and POP/IMAP >> Check status — it will show POP is enabled with the date and that date is usually when you created the account unless you tinkered with settings.



If you know any other way to know creation date of your gmail account, let us know in comments!
