1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Emirates Airline will use 'Bitcoin as a Payment Service' on: May 13, 2022, 09:59:21 AM
Against the background of all the bad news lately and the terrible state of the markets at the moment, here is some positive news which should put some more confidence in the newbies, that not everything is lost, and how the bitcoin market died for 1000th time, again.
Don't get fooled by the news sources saying that Bitcoin is dead and crypto is just a bubble. This type of narrative has been around since satoshi's era so, let's focus on the positive.


Here's the link to the news..

https://news.bitcoin.com/report-uae-airline-emirates-set-to-use-bitcoin-as-a-payment-service/

Quote
The United Arab Emirates (UAE)’s leading airline, Emirates Airline, will soon embrace “bitcoin as a payment service,” the company’s chief operating officer (COO) Adel Ahmed Al-Redha has said. In addition, the airline will add non-fungible token (NFT) collectibles on its webpage.

Reports of the airline’s plan to embrace bitcoin come just a few weeks after it revealed its NFT and metaverse plans. As reported by Bitcoin.com News, the company’s goal with the metaverse launch is to ensure the airline is “aligned with the UAE’s vision for the digital economy.”

The newbie user achow10 has almost the same username as Andrew Chow's one which is achow101
I don't think newbie can randomly choose almost the same username as one of the moderators and dev. For me it looks like done intentionally. I don't see any attempts to make any dirty business with it, could be harmless, but...

4  Other / Meta / Spam triggered by a keyword? on: April 06, 2022, 06:35:41 AM
Every day there's a new surprise here on the forum from the spammers. lol
I saw a few ads of a tax service on a popular block explorer some time ago. I checked the forum and saw they had also a signature campaign here and decided to ask if people used it before and what they think about it.

So yesterday I started a thread with a question about a reliable tax service and mentioned the one I found.

Not so long after (1H), a few accounts registered and posted a positive feedbacks about it.

Maybe I had some hope about this service but after this shit posting, my confidence in them when like this.

Anyway, back to the topic. Either some shitposter decided to farm new accounts, or there's a service to leave positive feedback about services triggered by keywords.

Please don't report those shitposters yet. I want to see if I can collect more accounts to be busted together.
5  Economy / Service Discussion / Tax report software? on: April 05, 2022, 01:29:37 PM
Hey guys,

I've been using kryptosekken for tax reports, but this year I have a problem exporting my transactions into CSV file, so found another service called Koinly.
I see they had a signature campaign on the forum, but other that that I see no any reviews of anything.

Has anyone tired this service or are there any other services you can suggest to check out?
6  Other / Meta / Personal Notes on user accounts or a private Trust feedback. on: April 04, 2022, 09:53:36 AM
I see a feature that will be quite useful for me, to be able to leave private notes on accounts which will be visible only for me, like neutral feedback visible only for me.
I cross so many accounts on a daily basis during my reporting hobby, it's gonna be so much easier if I can leave a note, comment on an account without messing with his trust feedback.
Instead of creating bookmark folders and bookmarking every account to follow, I could just leave a private feedback about the case or links and come back later to continue what I'm doing.

Do you guys see this feature as useful from your point of view? I don't know what will be the chance to be implemented here, but I would request it for a Epochtalk feature if more people are interested.
7  Bitcoin / Hardware wallets / Trezor exporting Transaction history error on: April 04, 2022, 07:38:28 AM
It is again this time of the year when the Scandinavians shall do their tax reports and again there are issues with the exporting the transaction history for the past year in csv file.
First choosing the period for the report is really hard to do. If you try to navigate trough the months and years it always goes back to today's date.
That's not so big issue, I just type the dates I want so it's workaround.
But when you come to the export menu and try to export the data into CSV ... it goes to infinite loading.

I updated the suite, updated the HW it self (trezor one) to the last versions and it's still the same.
Tried trough the web based suite.
Changed the PC, tried both solutions and still the same Sad

I see i'm not the only one having this problem, and the support is ... 0. They say it works with them, change the computer, WTF!

At the end I'll do it manually.

Anyone else having this issue with Trezor One?
8  Other / Politics & Society / If you still wonder why Russia invaded Ukraine, look no further. The answer. on: February 28, 2022, 01:47:13 PM
I have watched a few videos with suggestions why would Putin want that much Ukraine and this 30+ mins seems to nailed it.

It's a long one as the conflict between the two countries and actually the two packs NATO and old Warsaw Pack are quite complicated, together with some economical interests over natural gas and oil resources.

You'll finally get a clear picture of what and why it happen to Crimea back in 2014 and how it led to this war.

10  Economy / Reputation / Shady behavior by DECENT account, managing the DECENT ANN thread, 7yo project. on: February 22, 2022, 03:05:20 PM
They just logged in a few day ago and deleted the OP.
For me, this is just a shady behavior and I tagged the OP.

Luckily we have the Way Back machine an here is the Original Post > is here

In addition there are a few scam accusations by different users left on their trust page.

Here is the additional info for the project:

11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / When your freedom is taken, bitcoin and crypto is the solution! on: February 15, 2022, 09:59:40 AM
Again another perfect example why Bitcoin is Freedom!
And when 'they' take your freedom the only hope are the cryptocurrencies.

This is not about pandemic nor vax/anti-vax, this is just example of how the government can shut you down if you do not agree with them on any matter.

Trudeau vows to freeze anti-mandate protesters' bank accounts

Quote
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has taken the unprecedented step of invoking the Emergencies Act to crack down on anti-vaccine mandate protests.

Mr Trudeau said the scope of the measures would be "time-limited", "reasonable and proportionate" and would not see the military deployed.

With no need for a court order, banks will be able freeze personal accounts of anyone linked with the protests.

Maybe Chrys Sky was right back in May 2020.
12  Other / Meta / Is it only me, ot there are new ways of hidden advertising on the forum? on: February 11, 2022, 09:31:53 AM
I've seen that before, but didn't paid attention, until today.

This for me, looks like a hidden advertising of games. Maybe it's just a way to develop alt accounts or something else maybe but it's shady.

Two accounts with two posts, posting one after another in short period of time in popular/active sections is suspicions (at least for me).

So after a quick check the two accounts went off with 25sec difference.. c'mon. what a coincidence, right?




The thread was posted in 06:56:53
The account Cuda911 goes off at 07:05:01
The second post was at 07:05:02
The account Rikimaruu goes off at 07:05:26

Am I crazy (just a rhetorical question, I am ), or those accounts are connected?

13  Other / Meta / Forum categories as a tree? on: February 10, 2022, 10:30:42 AM
I wonder If there's a bitcointalk map of all the categories and subcategories in form of tree, like a way to see the structure of the forum?
I made one for myself but I think I've seen something before.

Nope.
Sorry mate, impossible...
this is/was my old address from my multi-bit Classic Wallet
i have moved all funds as well as switched into more modern / better wallets after 2016
and burned the wallet as well for security reasons...

so this is my NEW address (since around 2018-2019) now...

For security reasons, feel free to send me a PM for extra confirmations / verifications if wanted...

Leaving negative feedback back to those who tag you won't do any good for your situation.
Let's find a better solution.

Mostly scammers wake up and ask for loans and staking new address without signature from an old one, so tagging old account without activity in the past few year who woke up and the first thing was to ask for loan is a common practice until the owner of the account provide proof that he is the creator of the account. You have a chance to get the tags removed.

I suggest Jannn to remove his negative feedback he left to DS_ and icopress and focus on providing proof that he is the original owner.

Addresses you previously owned :

Can you provide a sign message from this address > 1HALVEAuiBkHhdJy4CZUDxg7H4cVFbrSrY used here
It's a vanity address and you should have access to the private keys yourself.
16  Other / Meta / {Request} ON/OFF button for bumping threads when posting in the ANN section OR.. on: February 01, 2022, 08:08:36 AM
It's been discussed partly before, but I want to add a new idea. 

The problem.
In the Ann section.
When you are posting an advice, warning or any other information, but you don't want to use your bumping power + bump the project on the 1st page.

The solutions:
1. Making a ON/OFF button when to use your bumping power.
    Pros: Clean and easy solution.
    Cons: Theymos has to make changes, and of course the fear of the "butterfly effect".

2. A workaround. Whitelisting of ppl to disable the 24H cool down time when deleting posts and then the "solution" Loycev came up with some time ago (se the quote below):
   Pros: Less work and stress for Theymos
   Cons: More work for all of use who want to use that
              We don't know how it affects our bumping score (at least I don't know)



I also would like an option to enable/disable my bumping power when replying on threads in such sections.
That's very easy: make a post, delete the post, and post again.
I recently tested it and this works:
Mini bumps

If you haven't posted in a topic in the last 7 days, posting in it adds 1% of your base bump power to the topic's bump score. Deleted posts count against the 7-day limit, but not the topic's bump score.
The way I read it, you can delete your post so it still counts for the 7-day limit, but doesn't add to the bump score anymore. Then, you can post there again, and it won't add to the bump score because you've posted within the last 7 days already.
If it works, this is a workaround I can live with Cheesy

Unfortunately, this doesn't work if the board doesn't allow you to delete your post within 24 hours.

18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bulgaria do not hold 213000 BTC according to the Minstry of Finance. on: January 31, 2022, 01:10:20 PM
There were a lot of speculations regarding the 213000 bitcoins confiscated by the Bulgarian Government authorities back in 2017.
Everything started after >

Quote
The Southeast European Law Enforcement Center (SELEC) published a press release titled “More than 200,000 Bitcoins in Value of 500 Million USD Seized by Bulgarian Authorities

After 5 years of questioning did this really happened, the Ministry of Finance came with an answer of the question whether there were any coins/seeds/passwords confiscated.

Here is the research article of the ClubZ.bg newspaper you can use a translator to read it.

I'll put some parts translated with google :

In short, the Ministry of Finance "has no information on bitcoins confiscated or confiscated in favor of the state." They added that the inspection was carried out at a time when Asen Vassilev was only a caretaker minister. He ordered the NRA and the Customs Agency to seek answers.

In addition to the inspection, by letters dated 11-02-151 dated 05.07.2021 and 03.08.2021, the Minister of Finance requested the Prosecutor General to check whether the Bulgarian state owns 213,519 bitcoins. On August 24, 2021, a response was received from the Deputy Prosecutor General at the Supreme Cassation Prosecutor's Office, stating that the Specialized Prosecutor's Office did not seize and store 213,519 bitcoins, "reads the letter from the Ministry of Finance to us.

Quote
Meanwhile, it became clear today that the MP from "Democratic Bulgaria" Ivaylo Mirchev has requested detailed information from Minister Boyko Rashkov about the fate of the alleged bitcoins.

Ivaylo Mirchev wants the Interior Minister to get an answer whether pre-trial proceedings have been instituted, whether an indictment has been filed in court, how many bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies have been seized in the investigation, where bitcoins are stored - online platform / exchange, hot wallet ( wallet on a computer connected to the Internet), on a cold wallet (wallet on a device separate from the computer that does not have an Internet connection) or on other media.

"Do the investigating authorities have the necessary private keys and keywords to recover these private keys in order to dispose of seized bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies, has any evidence been disposed of so far and if so, what order, when and for what reason, are they currently available as evidence in the case and are they available to the prosecutor's office? ”asks Mirchev, who will also expect information from the Minister of Electronic Government Bozhidar Bojanov.

I will follow the case and see it there's any new information coming out anytime soon and I'll keep you updated.
My personal opinion is that the Government never had control over any bitcoins at all, they maybe had the public address of the wallets holding them but never had access to them.

I know this is probably not the best place to post the thread, but if you have a cold storage wallet with a Linux distro you could be affected and only that, nodes, servers etc. Take precautions.

A vulnerability in Polkit's pkexec component identified as CVE-2021-4034 (PwnKit) is present in the default configuration of all major Linux distributions and can be exploited to gain full root privileges on the system, researchers warn today.

CVE-2021-4034 has been named PwnKit and its origin has been tracked to the initial commit of pkexec, more than 12 years ago, meaning that all Polkit versions are affected.

Part of the Polkit open-source application framework that negotiates the interaction between privileged and unprivileged processes, pkexec allows an authorized user to execute commands as another user, doubling as an alternative to sudo.
