1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Tokens (Altcoins) / DOH Token | Backlink Bounty (easy!) on: June 04, 2018, 10:26:16 PM
For the record, I'm not affiliated with the token in question. No idea who's behind it; almost seems like that's the way they want it. Cool with me. I stumbled over this on Twitter:

which links to:

Since it is so damn easy, I figured why not, fired up a dusty old copy of Scrapebox, updated it, and gave it a go. The "NoFollow links do not count" was the toughest part, but 1,000 dofollow links these days... easy peasy

Emailed my list and Waves address according to the instructions. Expected nothing, but was quite surprised to see this within a few minutes

Now I need to figure out whether this token has any actual value now or in the future. Even though it come with very little information, it seems to have had a good day on the DEX. Yeah, I could get $2 or so by dumping, but I'll keep mine and see how things go.

It was a while since I saw such low-hanging fruit in a bounty campaign. Give it a go if you want. It worked for me. Thought you might be interested. Cheerio!
2  Bitcoin / Project Development / Private key (privkey) hunters - unite! on: May 29, 2018, 01:16:42 PM
My fellow crypto hackers. I've been into finding BTC private keys for a little more than a year. I have slightly less than 18k private keys in my own database.

As some sort of proof, here are 50 privkeys - try importing them in for example Electrum


...and you will get something like (sorry, seems like I don't have the required rank to embed images):

The vast majority of the privkeys I've discovered are NOT from brainwallets (i.e. weak SHA256 hashes). Image search for QR-codes was nice for a while though, but those days are over. I have a couple of other techniques that I'm fairly sure anyone else hasn't thought of.

Every privkey in my database corresponds to a BTC address with at least two transactions on the blockchain. I throw away all "empty" privkeys.

I have a large Bitcoin Core wallet containing all my discovered privkeys. Five smaller transactions happened within the past week.

Anyways.... I was thinking maybe someone here has the same hobby as I do? Care to hook up and share some thoughts and strategies?
3  Other / Off-topic / 1 BTC bounty for pwning a site on: November 01, 2017, 07:32:36 PM
Not sure if this is the right forum part (admin, please move or delete as you see fit)

A friend of mine asked me to spread this:

Looks like you "only" need to hack one Wordpress site to collect the bounty. I have no skills at all in hacking, so no idea what it takes to pull something like this off.

What do you say?

5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / CryptoNote coins (BCN, Aeon, XMR, Monero...) and blockchain size - Trouble? on: July 04, 2014, 03:34:52 PM
I, along with many others, am fascinated with CryptoNote coins, such as Aeon, but see an obvious problem with no apparent solution: the astronomical size of the blockchains.

Bitcoin has existed since 2009, and its blockchain is around 20 GB, which is manageable.

Aeon has been out for 38 days, and its blockchain is nearly 1 GB. Ouch.

This is clearly not sustainable. Am I missing something fundamental, or are CryptoNote coins doomed because of this design flaw?

Take a look at this non-profit charity:

I can personally vouch for their professionalism, integrity, promptness and reliability.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [XPM] A real-life comparison between and mining pools on: October 14, 2013, 12:19:18 PM
I currently have access to 1920 cores in the cloud (don't ask - don't tell), and Primecoin (XPM) has caught mine and everybody else's attention recently. I decided to make a 24 hour comparison between the two major mining pools and, and post the results here for you to see and comment on. I used the latest and most recommended builds of mining software, for each of the pools, respectively.

Test #1 -
24 hours
1920 cores
Using the latest jhPrimeminer v3.3 by rdebourbon for x64 Linux (compiled myself)
Default setting on all 60 instances: jhprimeminer -o -u myuser -p mypass -t 32
No connection problems whatsoever
Number of blocks found according to the user interface: 27
Result: 174 XPM (quite delayed because mined XPMs mature very slowly in comparison to other coins)

Test #2 -
24 hours
1920 cores
Using the latest primeminer v0.6 RC1 by thbaumbach for x64 Linux (compiled myself)
Default setting on all 60 instances: primeminer -pooluser=myaddress -poolport=1337 -genproclimit=32
No connection problems whatsoever
Number of blocks found according to the user interface: 0 (WTF?!)
Result: 22 XPM (also quite delayed)


I think the numbers speak for themselves: rules for mining XPM using many instances. Under these conditions, gave more than 8(!) as many XPM. Also, the user interface is a million times better at I know that lots of people push for on other forums and here. I almost smell scam.

Does everybody agree?

9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Giveaway - 1,000,000 Infinitecoins (IFC) for newcomers! [Sold out, see post #66] on: July 14, 2013, 07:13:28 PM
Dear all,

I've been a strong supporter of Infinitecoin since day one. Since I started mining early and with much distributed power, I passed the billion IFC mark only after a couple intense weeks of mining. So yeah, I own more than 1 % of the total final amount. And no, I'm not selling.

In this thread, I will give away 1,000,000 IFC each to everyone who meets the criteria listed below. The reason I'm doing this is because I want more people to discover this fantastic cryptocurrency, despite what has happened on the open market over the past few days, a currency that I truly believe has a bright future if we give it time to mature.

If you:

-- Have more than 20 posts here, but less than 250
-- Seriously consider liking
-- Promise not to dump the coins for pennies at the nearest exchanger

Then please post your IFC wallet here, and I will send you 1,000,000 IFC as soon as possible. I will check the thread a couple of times a day. I have decided to limit this giveaway to the first 47 users here who qualify. 47 million IFC up for grabs - first come, first severed!

Finally, I would be delighted if you gave me a trust point. I also take bribes at

BTC: 17rssKJRAo1yA9qwJc95JAcyyNMprbHFuJ
XPM: Ab3dSvM7tB5sL3Kn84YvAkWzCFQoxxb9tp

No amount is too small. Thanks. Shoot!
