1  Other / Meta / Opening Mutiple Ann Threads - Allowed? on: August 09, 2020, 05:09:16 PM
User Profile: GOLD Cash

The said user created an ANN thread for his Project on June 16 in the Altcoin Announcement Section "Gold Cash(GOLD)| A Rare Cryptocurrency (POW) Long Term Scarcity Investors Coin" which is not even shown in the first 10 pages. 2 days back he posted the same ANN Thread with another title "What is Gold Cash?" which can found on the 6th page. This shows that the new bump system is worked as it is meant to be.

Today, inorder to bypass the bump system, he posts a topic in the Altcoin Discussion where the bump system is absent and diverts it to his ANN thread without any value addition. And the said topic is displayed on the front page. Is this kind of activity allowed?

So I just want to know
- Whether one can open duplicate/multiple ANN threads for the same Projects?
- Should we extent the bump system to Altcoin Dicussion board?
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [Doubt] Pending Ethereum transaction on: July 11, 2020, 05:26:44 PM
A few days back, a friend of mine made a transaction via Metamask with a lesser gas price. But the transaction didn't go through, so he made another transaction after checking ethgasstation with a higher fee. But that transaction also ended up as pending.



When I checked the issue, I found that the transaction #14 was dropped.



But the transaction #15 doesn't show up on etherscan.

When I checked the wallet address, the funds are still available in the wallet. Currently, he is not in a hurry to move the funds, so what should I advise him to do? Should I ask him to leave it be as the transaction has been dropped?

4  Bitcoin / Electrum / BWT plugin to connect without Electrum Servers on: May 28, 2020, 12:18:46 PM
Recently a piece of information was shared via Telegram that Bitcoin Wallet Tracker enables electrum users to connect to bitcoin core directly without using electrum server

https://github.com/shesek/bwt#electrum-plugin

So I just want to know whether it is better to connect my Electrum through Electrum server or through the BWT plugin. Is there a difference between the two?
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Is DeFi really revolutionary? One attack after another. on: April 19, 2020, 06:28:47 AM
We all know that a few months back we had Flash loan attacks costing millions by exploiting bZx protocol. Now, looks like a DeFi protocol, dForce has lost over 99 percent ($25 Million) of its assets in an attack Saturday night.

7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / 51% attack on Bitcoin Gold yet again on: January 26, 2020, 06:22:43 AM
Bitcoin Gold was previously 51% attacked in May 2018, now it has happened yet again as per this GitHub post and two double-spends have been made possible on 23rd and 24th Jan 2020. There have been several instances where all the Bitcoin Forks have been 51% attacked, and this just proves that when the hash rate is low and the miners are centralised, the chain is no longer secure. So people choose wisely.

8  Bitcoin / Mycelium / Mycelium: Transaction signing failed on: November 27, 2019, 11:08:26 AM
Recently, I tried to send a transaction from my Mycelium wallet. But I got an error popup "Transaction signing failed. Please report this incident to tech support. Raw transaction can be copied to clipboard, if possible please attach it to your report". So I updated my Mycelium wallet in my Android Phone. But I am still having the same problem. I also tried reloading the account. But the problem still persists.
Did some search, but couldn't find a solution. So I'm asking here. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Starting Nov 25, Indians can buy and sell crypto from Binance with fiat (INR). As of now it's limited to purchasing Tether as in Indian exchanges.

What are your thoughts?

I see nothing big here apart from the fact that Binance suddenly jumped into Indian Market. I think most Indian exchanges will suffer because of this entry.

From what I know is that once you have 250 merits and 240 activity, you'll be promoted to Sr.Member. But in this case, he is stuck as Full Member. Is this a bug or am I missing something?






Ok found what I missed  Tongue Thanks suchmoon
11  Local / India / New Committee Report favouring Digital Currencies and tokens on: September 05, 2019, 10:40:14 AM
A new committee report has been released by the Indian Finance Ministry and it seems to be favouring Cryptocurrencies.
You can find the report here - https://dea.gov.in/sites/default/files/Report%20of%20the%20Steering%20Committee%20on%20Fintech.pdf
Edit: You can read through the pages 14-21 of the report.

Looks like all the recent news regarding Crypto in India is throwing light on a positive regulation. What do you guys think?

12  Local / Marketplace (India) / Buy Ledger Wallets at discounted price on: September 02, 2019, 12:37:56 PM
Hello everyone, I am offering a very simple service to save you money while purchasing Ledger Hardware Wallets from their Official website.

Rules and Terms:
  • Purchase should be made after contacting me directly and following my instructions.
  • Non-negative Jr. Member+ only. Exceptions can be made
  • I deserve the right to reject any request.
  • Commissions rates might be changed in future but it will not affect existing deals
  • I might change the rules and terms at any point of time but once again it won't affect existing deals
  • Please don't cry about the topic being self-moderated. If you are pissed that I deleted your post, feel free to open a new topic

How it Works:
1. Comment here and send me a private message in the prescribed format.
2. I'll provide you with my referral/affiliate link.
3. Purchase from the official website using my referral link.
4. I'll confirm the payment has been made.
5. I will pay you 100% of the commission(liable to change) I get from your purchase via your desired payment mode. (Gpay/Paytm/UPI/XRP)

Prescribed Format to Reply/PM:
Code:
Hardware Wallet:
Date/Time Purchase:
Quantity:
Desired Payment Mode:

Wondering why am I offering this service? The thing is I signed up for Ledger affiliates a long time ago and shared my referral link here and there online. Since it wasn't fruitful, I completely ignored it and started focusing on other things in life. So when I accidentally checked my affiliate page today I saw two purchases made dated 2017 and that I have 26.10 € (~2000 INR), I still need ~23.90 € to validate my account and get paid.





So I'm risking 2000 INR out of my pocket to get my hands on the commissions earned. This is a 50-50 gamble on my side but its pure profit for the purchaser  Tongue

If you have any doubts/concerns do comment below. I am open to constructive discussions.

Looks like a possible vulnerability been identified in 0x V2 protocol and the contracts have been shut down and are being migrated to patched versions.Though the vulnerability has not been exploited by anyone as claimed by the 0x team, I believe that this incident might affect the token price. What do you guys think?

14  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Libra – The Good, The Bad & The Ugly on: June 23, 2019, 06:34:48 PM
It’s been a while since I last posted in this forum, so I thought of writing something useful to the community about the latest "Libra" Project as there is not much information in the ANN. In this post, I’ll be sharing my views, information from several sources that I have read and points from the Libra Whitepaper and Website.

Libra
   Libra is aimed to be a stable digital currency built on a secure and stable open-source blockchain, backed by a reserve of real assets, and governed by an independent association. The project has targeted to launch in the first half of 2020. Libra has proposed a Libra Investment Token, for investment purposes and a Libra Currency, to serve as a stable digital currency.

The Libra Reserve –

  • Libra is fully backed by a reserve of real assets. A basket of bank deposits and short-term government securities will be held in the Libra Reserve for every Libra that is created.
  • The money in the reserve will come from two sources: investors in the separate Investment Token, and users of Libra through authorized resellers.
  • The reserve will be invested in low-risk assets that will yield interest over time. Interest on the reserve assets will be used to cover the costs of the system, ensure low transaction fees, pay dividends to investors who provided capital to jumpstart the ecosystem and support further growth and adoption.
  • Users cannot directly interface with the reserve instead through entities authorized by the association to transact large amounts of fiat and Libra in and out of the reserve. These authorized resellers will integrate with exchanges and other institutions that buy and sell cryptocurrencies to users, and will provide with liquidity for users who wish to convert from cash to Libra and back again.

The Libra Blockchain –

  • The Libra currency is built on an open source Blockchain, “Libra Blockchain”. It will start as a permissioned Blockchain but will work towards a permissionless network.
  • “Move” is a new programming language for implementing custom transaction logic and smart contracts on the Libra Blockchain.
  • Libra Blockchain adopts a Byzantine Fault Tolerant (BFT) consensus approach using Libra BFT consensus protocol. BFT consensus protocols are designed to function correctly even if some validator nodes — up to one-third of the network — are compromised or fail.
  • Data on the Libra Blockchain is protected by Merkle trees. The Libra Blockchain is a single data structure that records the history of transactions and states over time.
  • The Libra Blockchain is pseudonymous and allows users to hold one or more addresses that are not linked to their real-world identity.
  • It is expected to operate at 1000 tps.

The Libra Association –

  • The Libra Association is an independent, not-for-profit membership organization headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland and is the governing entity of the Libra Blockchain and Libra Reserve.
  • The association is governed by the Libra Association Council, which is comprised of one representative per validator node. Initially, this group consists of the Founding Members.
  • All decisions are brought to the council, and major policy or technical decisions require the consent of two-thirds of the votes.
  • The Libra Association is the only party able to create (mint) and destroy (burn) Libra. Coins are only minted when authorized resellers have purchased those coins from the association with fiat assets to fully back the new coins. Coins are only burned when the authorized resellers sell Libra coin to the association in exchange for the underlying assets.

Founding Members –

  • Payments: Mastercard, PayPal, PayU (Naspers’ fintech arm), Stripe, Visa
  • Technology and marketplaces: Booking Holdings, eBay, Facebook/Calibra, Farfetch, Lyft, Mercado Pago, Spotify AB, Uber Technologies, Inc.
  • Telecommunications: Iliad, Vodafone Group
  • Blockchain: Anchorage, Bison Trails, Coinbase, Inc., Xapo Holdings Limited
  • Venture Capital: Andreessen Horowitz, Breakthrough Initiatives, Ribbit Capital, Thrive Capital, Union Square Ventures
  • Nonprofit and multilateral organizations, and academic institutions: Creative Destruction Lab, Kiva, Mercy Corps, Women’s World Banking

Calibra

  • Calibra is a regulated subsidiary created by Facebook on top of the Libra network.
  • Calibra will be available as a standalone app in the App Store and Google Play. You will also be able to use Calibra directly in your WhatsApp and Messenger apps, so you can send and receive money as easily as you message friends, family, and businesses.
  • When Calibra is available, you will need a government-issued ID to sign up for an account. Facebook and WhatsApp account information are also used when available to verify identity and prevent fraud. Calibra also has in-app reporting and dedicated customer service. In the rare event of unauthorized fraud, you will receive a full refund.
  • Website: https://calibra.com


The Good

  • Facebook has a pretty huge user base. With the announcement of Libra, Facebook has undoubtedly put the word “Crypto” in the minds of almost everyone in the world. Hence, there is a huge chance of increasing crypto adoption in the following years.
  • The process of minting and burning of Libra tokens when deposits and withdrawals are made from the reserve is a welcome move for a stable coin which is going to be backed by real assets. This means that Libra will be 100% backed by real assets.
  • With the announcement of Libra, US and EU regulators have immediately asked them to stop developing Libra until the governments could review a plan.  Before Libra, the Governments have been mostly ignoring cryptocurrencies. Now that Facebook has upped the stakes, there is a possibility of imposing a new crypto regulation. I believe that regulation of the crypto market will curtail ICO & other scams.

The Bad

  • The initial members of the council are the Founding Members and serve as the network's initial validator node. To be such a node, an entity needs to make an investment of at least $10 million in the network through purchasing Libra Investment Tokens. Each $10 million investment entitles one vote in the council, subject to a cap. So, it’s more like a centralized ecosystem where some big corporates validate the transactions.
  • Libra will start as a permissioned Blockchain. In a permissioned Blockchain, access has to be granted to run a validator node ie. Only if invest $10 million, you’ll be granted permission to validate.
  • While the interest received from the Reserve is shared among the validators, the Users of Libra do not receive a return from the reserve. As the user base grows and the money starts flowing, the reserve gets bigger and the validators (Corporates) earn interest on the Libra User's funds and the users are left with nothing.

The Ugly

  • Since, Libra will be backed by traditional money in a bank to support a stable price, it has to be layered on top of the existing financial system. Thus, the successful version of Libra will be more of a Global Payment System for moving fiat money around the globe with low cross-border transaction fees rather than being a cryptocurrency.
  • Though Facebook is expected to maintain a leadership role through 2019 in the Libra Association, once the Network launches, Facebook’s role in the governance of the Libra Association will be equal to that of its peers and important decisions will require two-thirds of the votes. While one may think it as a good thing, it means that Facebook or Calibra or the Libra Association can’t really make any promises about how their technology will work in the future.
  • The Whitepaper quotes as "Our ambition is for the Libra network to become permissionless. The challenge is that as of today we do not believe that there is a proven solution that can deliver the scale, stability, and security needed to support billions of people and transactions across the globe through a permissionless network." When Bitcoin, Ethereum & others have already provided a proven solution for a stable, secure, decentralized and permissionless network, I am not sure of what the Libra Association is trying to accomplish.
  • While the Libra Blockchain is pseudonymous and allows users to hold one or more addresses that are not linked to their real-world identity, Calibra will need a government-issued ID to sign up for an account claiming that it is required for AML rules. Why does Calibra need users identity when the network itself is pseudonymous? When Facebook's data privacy breach is an ongoing debate, none could trust Facebook with their identity and financial data.

I know that I have start trading with less investment to learn more. So, if any experienced trader here could show me the right direction? Like a good learning website, books preferably videos or youtube channel, how to read charts etc

THANKS in advance
17  Local / Press & News from India / RBI's latest stand on Virtual Currencies on: April 05, 2018, 05:03:06 PM
Statement on Developmental and Regulatory Policies

Quote
12. Central Bank Digital Currency

Rapid changes in the landscape of the payments industry along with factors such as emergence of private digital tokens and the rising costs of managing fiat paper/metallic money have led central banks around the world to explore the option of introducing fiat digital currencies. While many central banks are still engaged in the debate, an inter-departmental group has been constituted by the Reserve Bank to study and provide guidance on the desirability and feasibility to introduce a central bank digital currency. The Report will be submitted by end-June 2018.

13. Ring-fencing regulated entities from virtual currencies

Technological innovations, including those underlying virtual currencies, have the potential to improve the efficiency and inclusiveness of the financial system. However, Virtual Currencies (VCs), also variously referred to as crypto currencies and crypto assets, raise concerns of consumer protection, market integrity and money laundering, among others.

Reserve Bank has repeatedly cautioned users, holders and traders of virtual currencies, including Bitcoins, regarding various risks associated in dealing with such virtual currencies. In view of the associated risks, it has been decided that, with immediate effect, entities regulated by RBI shall not deal with or provide services to any individual or business entities dealing with or settling VCs. Regulated entities which already provide such services shall exit the relationship within a specified time. A circular in this regard is being issued separately.
