1  Other / Meta / Theymos Doesn't love the Forum Anymore ?? !!!!! on: May 05, 2018, 04:58:24 AM
Hello Guys,
Thanks For stepping here.
I guess now Theymos is not aware of what going on the local Forums ??

There are No Mods in the Following Section Hrvatski (Croatian) , India ,    한국어 (Korean) , Skandinavisk

Is he aware what wrong is going on the local sections ? I guess No. If he do knows then he would have chosen the Mods right now.

If you Guys think that the Local Forums are not so active and for that reason May Theymos is not choosing the Mods, then you are wrong.

עברית (Hebrew)  and    日本語 (Japanese)  These are the two Local Forums which have many less topics created but they have the Mods.

So @Theymos have you been recently to any of the Local Forums , if you have been then you could have understand the problem. Many of the topics are not in right section. Some are spamming the sections with their referral links. Some too using automatic translations in the forum.

So Kindly @Theymos look about this issue.

And Rest of the user, what do you think ? Why Theymos is doing so ?

Theymos Doesn't love the Forum Anymore ?

2  Other / Meta / Need Korean sub-forum Moderators !! PLEASE THEYMOS CHOOSE A MOD FOR KOREAN FORUM on: April 15, 2018, 11:42:31 AM
Hello Guys,
It's now time for us to get a New Korean sub-forum Moderator. At the present time there is no Moderator in the Korean sub forum and the admin's post is still pinned in the sub-forum https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1764772.0

It is now a days very annoying that People are spamming there referral link and off-topic posta in the Main section of the forum. Thread that belongs to altcoins section are also posted in the Main sub-forum. Reporting posts is also not helping i guess. As we can still see those shitposts down there. (This maybe because present mods can't understand Korean?) So we reall need a Korean guy as a Moderator.

I don't know how the Moderator has to be choosen but as i see in the last posts of theymos that "Those who report more" get the chance to be a MOD. So kindly post here the all time reporters and we may elect him/her as  a Mod.
I am too trying to report as many posts as i can to become a Mod.

Theymos also has the rights to choose the Mod without Election i guess. So whatever necessary steps are possible please do so. We really need a Korean Mod as instant as you can.

Thanks For reading this.

Regards
3  Economy / Gambling / Your lack of Vigilance is costing YOU - Wake up! on: December 27, 2017, 12:30:54 AM
The last few months after losing far too much money on Bitcasino & a little on Bitstarz I have come to understand that their games are not fair. I have looked into the industry through a VIP contact I made there and have come to understand that white label solutions are 100% RIGGABLE. Since then I have contacted some people from other websites which are members of the Crypto Gambling Foundation. At first I thought it was a bit of a joke but have soon come to realise this needs to be looked into more!

https://cryptogambling.org/articles/the-problem-with-a-lack-of-vigilance/


Have you lost money playing on non provably fair websites? WAKE UP NOW


Here's the article I linked above. It's worth the read. Gamble responsibly guys. I'm going to start my own website soon trying to help people understand. I'd love it if Aengus could also reply to my PM in regards to helping the CGF more. This is an innitiative I want to take on.

Provable fairness allows users to play on sites without the fear of their bets being altered into the house’s favor. But there’s an important caveat that is often missed or not explained to the players: full trustlessness is only there if the player does what they need to do also. Nearly all provably fair systems operate on the server seed client seed model. The server shows you a hash of their seed before you start betting and allows you to change your client seed before the first bet of the round. This way, since you are introducing new data into the hash function, the outcome of the hash is no longer controlled by the site as they do not have control over the data you give them.

But here’s the problem: many sites will pre-fill that box for users when they change their seed. This in itself does not have to be a problem. In fact, it’s possible for this to be even more secure than the user entering their own data. If the site allows you to enter up to 32 random characters and they pre-fill the client seed box with 32 actually random characters (preferrably generated on the client side with JavaScript instead of by the server) then it’s more secure than just entering “1234” as your seed, just like a password. (However it’s only “more secure” if the site is malicious and trying to change outcomes, and such a site would probably not generate good seeds for you so the point is moot).

The problem with pre-filling the client seed comes from a situation where the site is malicious, which we should assume until proven otherwise. A malicious site can easily generate a server seed and client seed ahead of time that when used result in more losing bets than winning ones. It’s just a matter of generating random client seeds and checking the results until they get one that’s sufficiently “bad”. If this site were to present this bad seed to the user as a sort of default option, many people would click past it and not think about it. The site would still use all the same provably fair algorithms, but could still be cheating you. Such a thing would only be possible if the site thinks you are likely to keep betting high or keep betting low, because estimates for you winning rely on consistently betting one or the other. (If the site generated a seed pair that would make you lose 55% of the time if you bet high, but you chose to bet low instead, you would be winning 55% of the time instead of losing). However, if the site does not allow you to pick high or low (or the game is some game other than dice where the numbers affect the outcome in a different way) then this opens up a good attack vector for them.

The concern with this kind of attack on players is small, because it would be difficult for a site to pull off consistently, especially without eventually drawing attention, but no hole however small should be discounted, especially with technology like machine learning becoming more prominent. If you take anything from reading this, always change your client seed to something that you created, copy down the hash of your server seed before you start betting and you’ll be fine.

5  Economy / Gambling discussion / Do you think dicing can take over the real money market like it did with Bitcoin on: October 26, 2017, 05:12:31 AM
Judging by statistics on websites like dicesites.com websites are doing 10's of million of dollars a week in volume in dicing. Do you think this could translate to the real money market. Dicing obviously is giving all other casino games a run for their money being the most popular by far.

I heard Primedice might be working on it... It could be rumoured around their possible ICO post?
6  Economy / Gambling discussion / What actually is Provably Fairness?! on: October 09, 2017, 05:19:53 AM
You hear the word "Provably fairness" a lot thrown around, but it's not really understood fully by everyone.

This article I found on the crypto gambling foundation by Kristof is really good at explaining it. I recommend anyone read it, even if you think you know!

Before we may begin to understand what makes a casino provably fair, we need to study how the basis of online gambling works. Simply put, players bet on the outcome of randomly generated
numbers.

Formerly, these random numbers were generated solely by the host of a game, leaving complete control in the hands of operators. Participants had to trust the host not generating results in favor of anyone. Casinos operating on these merits caused conflict of interest for those seeking a fair gambling experience.

Due to lack of transparency, the essence of provably fair games was born. Corresponding concepts provide a way for both the operators and players to contribute to randomization, which in turn removes any possibility of deceit or cheating.

The foundation of fair gaming algorithms were laid by pseudorandom number generators, utilizing seeds which determine the outcome of wagers.

A seed shall be equally influenced by players and hosts, meaning that the result of each bet at a provably fair casino is a team effort. The house is no longer in complete control of randomization.

So, wouldn’t this mean that players are able to manipulate results in their own favor?

Commitment schemes to the rescue!


To prevent malicious behavior, hosts mustn’t show us their actual seed at first. Instead, they present a commitment of their own seed to us. Similarly to envelopes, commitments seal and conceal messages contained by them. They cannot be altered or revealed without consent from the sender. For example, hosts may commit a seed by using a one-way hash function or public key cryptography.

Hosts shall provide transparency and proof of authenticity by revealing their actual seeds at the end of each game. Anyone in possession of a host’s commitment may verify the immutability of the corresponding seed.

Bets shall be reproducible once the host seed gets revealed. Players can constantly audit the behavior of hosts by comparing random results calculated by a host and them.
Proving that the outcome of a wager is computed fairly and transparently should be performed by anyone at any time. We strongly believe in widespread use of provably fair algorithms throughout the gaming industry.
