1  Local / India / [GUY FAWKES DAY RAFFLE] #8 - Pick a lucky number and win 0.001 bitcoin on: November 05, 2020, 03:32:37 PM
GUY FAWKES DAY RAFFLE #8


Many of us were already aware that today is the celebration of Guy Fawkes Night/Bonfire Night. In UK, on 5th of November 1605 Guy Fawkes (a member of Gunpowder gang) was arrested while guarding the explosives which would have killed King James I with the explosion of House of Lords. To celebrate the survival of King James I, Guy Fawkes day is celebrated all over UK. Fast forward to 1982, comic book illustrator David Lloyd created a mask for the title character V based upon the notorious Guy Fawkes. Ever since the release of the movie based on the comics released in 2005, anyone who is protesting against the government would be wearing the mask and it gradually became a symbol for anonymity.

We sometimes depict satoshi face with a human wearing the Guy Fawkes mask and to commemorate this day, here is a special raffle being conducted! I initially thought of creating this #8 raffle to sync with Whitepaper day which falls of October 31 but since that has been a common occurrence in our forum, I skipped the date and launched the raffle on 5th of November.

Talks apart, we are experiencing the 2 year new highs and I hope everyone are enjoying this bull run with their portfolios turning dark green. With an all time high nearing, our forum will most likely be experiencing huge influx of Indian newbies to claim signature campaigns and bounties and it is our responsibility to turn them into constructive users in the forthcoming months. As of today, the price is around $14,900 ~ ₹11,00,000 per bitcoin which is a huge rise since the last raffle and the winner would be receiving ₹1,100.

As I have already said in the ANN topic, these fun lotteries will be hosted each month and the rules are same as the previous. With the April cooling period coming to an end as of October, @amishmanish can start participating in these raffles starting from this month until they win another.

About the Game :

1. This is a pretty simple and quite interesting game, where there would be 16 spots from 0-9 and a-f. Each person should pick one character and post in the reply of this topic along with their bitcoin address.

2. Once all the 16 spots are filled, I will choose one single future block to be mined. For instance person X has chosen '8' as their spot and I have chosen block #655548. Here the hash of the block #655548 is 00000000000000000002e90d64af78c419dd677de35a6fc8955f80822349b34c which determines that c is the winning character.

3. The person who has chosen the correct character wins the prize amount of 0.001BTC (Please note that 0.001BTC is kinda cheaper but in terms of our economy it costs around 1,100 INR which is much better)

As per rules, they are mostly the same as followed in the previous raffle topics

Rules :

1. The game is strictly restricted only to Indian forum members. If you are someone outside India or hailing from nearby countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan or Sri Lanka, you are not allowed to participate in this game.

2. Previous raffle/lottery winners cannot participate in the upcoming games for 6 months. Let us give others a chance to win some bitcoins. You can consider this 6 months as a cooling period like if some X has won the game in May, they can participate only in the December raffle. Our local community is so small such that I have reduced the period to 6 months. If in future, we rise up to one of the most populated local boards I might change the rule such that the game winners cannot participate in the upcoming lotteries for over a year.

3. There are 16 spots and only 1 slot per person is allowed and more importantly I cannot give you any random spots. Once I have updated the slot in OP, there is no changing of slot numbers. Please see to the filled spots in OP/ have an eye on picked up spots by others before posting your slot number in reply.

4. Newbies are allowed to participate, but you shouldn't have made your first post in this topic and You might have been a old guy but isn't really an active poster.

5. This topic is only for playing the game and all the other discussions and doubts regarding the raffle or future game ideas should be posted only in the Indian Raffle Discussion topic.

6. Bounty Hunters are not allowed to participate in the game. Even though if you are from India, the board doesn't need bounty hunters who are chiming here only for profits or earning money from this forum.

Signature Codes for popular Collectibles

Right from the end of March 2019, I got involved into this beautiful community of collectibles and have been collecting various crypto coins, notes, bars whenever I can and gradually the collections took a small shape over the period. Lately for the past 2 months I thought of learning signature designing which was quite challenging at the beginning and with the help of jayce and roslinpl signature guide, I was able to learn quite a lot of designing skills.

All over the forum, many have been spamming for sats and thereby promoting various shady shitcoins/ some legit gambling websites as well. So I got an idea that why not we support the collectibles which we like the most by wearing a signature? The signatures were designed for Full Members, Senior and Hero/Legendary Members and as of now the designs for Kialara and Polymerbit have been completed. A few like MANTIS CRYPTOS, CASASCIUS, BITBILLS logos have already been designed and I am currently designing the signatures for the same which will be updated in a week!

I am also accepting orders for Custom Signature Designs (after the announcement of my ongoing designs and will be designed only for collectors/collectibles) which will be designed for free of cost and will take around 3-4 days per design. I am doing this service to improve my signature designing skills and to help the collectible community in wearing their favorite collectible/shop signatures.

Let me know if there are any errors while wearing the signature and I will be happy to correct them ASAP.

3  Other / Beginners & Help / Willing to know ideas for MBA Project based on Bitcoin on: August 26, 2020, 08:01:59 PM
A known person of mine is currently pursuing a MBA degree on "Technology and Operations Management" background. They already have a Engineering degree in Computer Science and they were asked to do a project based on their current studies and they have approached me for an idea. I don't really have much time to think on a good project based on bitcoin and I would like to know the community opinions on the ideas for the project.

Basically the core idea of the project is that it has to be efficient for the workplace or should be increasing the productivity of a company based on the gathered data and charts. The only two ideas I can get as of now is "Six Sigma Process for improving the quality of company which is set up on Bitcoin" or "Taking a review from public for setting up a firm based on Bitcoin"

I have already read the reddit topic : https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/1wx5yo/doing_mba_project_on_bitcoin_can_use_help_in_topic/ and have got a general overview on it. But I would like to know various ideas from bitcoiners over here. May be I can go to the extremes of contacting a few developers from Lightning Labs/Blockstream/Chain Codes through Twitter or through this forum for getting their points on the Sig Sigma model and how they have been improving the quality of company year by year?

5  Local / India / [INDEPENDENCE DAY RAFFLE] #7 - Pick a lucky number and win 0.001 bitcoin on: August 15, 2020, 07:52:47 PM
INDEPENDENCE DAY RAFFLE #7


Happy 74th Independence Day everyone! It's been 73 years since we received Independence and to commemorate this day, here is a special raffle being conducted! The #7 raffle should have been started in July, but since there was scarce participation which made the extension of June Raffle it's postponed to August. The #8 Raffle would be conducted in September only if the current raffle finishes off before the first week of September.

Talks apart, the crypto market has been going through various a wild ride for the past couple of months starting from June. Just to quote a little : DeFi is trending and we are experiencing a mirror image of 2017 bull run! Shitcoins are pumping again, Ethereum touching 2 year high and of course scams are trying to prove themselves as legit projects  Cheesy I hope everyone are enjoying this wild crypto ride and I also believe this will bring in new members to ever growing small community of local board posters. As of today, the price is around $11,800 ~ ₹8,80,000 per bitcoin.

As I have already said in the ANN topic, these fun lotteries will be hosted each month and the rules are same as the previous. With the January cooling period coming to an end as of July, @sureshnsnet can start participating in these raffles starting from this month until they win another.

About the Game :

1. This is a pretty simple and quite interesting game, where there would be 16 spots from 0-9 and a-f. Each person should pick one character and post in the reply of this topic along with their bitcoin address.

2. Once all the 16 spots are filled, I will choose one single future block to be mined. For instance person X has chosen '8' as their spot and I have chosen block #643887. Here the hash of the block #643887 is 0000000000000000000f56f8272ebea893f3bbc257a84f919ff46b8972ecd0c8 which determines that 8 is the winning character.

3. The person who has chosen the correct character wins the prize amount of 0.001BTC (Please note that 0.001BTC is kinda cheaper but in terms of our economy it costs around 880 INR which is much better)

As per rules, they are mostly the same as followed in the previous raffle topics

Rules :

1. The game is strictly restricted only to Indian forum members. If you are someone outside India or hailing from nearby countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan or Sri Lanka, you are not allowed to participate in this game.

2. Previous raffle/lottery winners cannot participate in the upcoming games for 6 months. Let us give others a chance to win some bitcoins. You can consider this 6 months as a cooling period like if some X has won the game in February, they can participate only in the September raffle. Our local community is so small such that I have reduced the period to 6 months. If in future, we rise up to one of the most populated local boards I might change the rule such that the game winners cannot participate in the upcoming lotteries for over a year.

3. There are 16 spots and only 1 slot per person is allowed and more importantly I cannot give you any random spots. Once I have updated the slot in OP, there is no changing of slot numbers. Please see to the filled spots in OP/ have an eye on picked up spots by others before posting your slot number in reply.

4. Newbies are allowed to participate, but you shouldn't have made your first post in this topic and You might have been a old guy but isn't really an active poster.

5. This topic is only for playing the game and all the other discussions and doubts regarding the raffle or future game ideas should be posted only in the Indian Raffle Discussion topic.

6. Bounty Hunters are not allowed to participate in the game. Even though if you are from India, the board doesn't need bounty hunters who are chiming here only for profits or earning money from this forum.

6  Local / India / [GREAT INDIAN LOTTERY] #6 - Pick a lucky number and help a family(optional) on: June 23, 2020, 04:29:36 PM
GREAT INDIAN LOTTERIES #6


The month of June on the whole hasn't been good with the rising numbers and the rumored ban on the bitcoin and cryptocurrencies again in the nation. The price after the halving has stabilized in the range of $9000 ~ ₹7,00,000 and I do hope we will be seeing new highs in the upcoming months. As of today, the price is around $9,600 ~ ₹7,30,000 per bitcoin.

Regarding the pandemic, there has been various helping hands in our forum to help the COVID affected nations and people in general. Initially Project COVID-19 was organized by @Royse777 to help the communities affected by the pandemic and there has been various support for the project since the start. Apart from this another forum member @CryptopreneurBrainboss has started supporting families in Nigeria through the fundraising program Project Covid-19: Supply to families in Nigeria While the latter one has been completed with another outreach planned for August 2020, the first one is still good around. Well, there isn't any urge to donate for these projects but if the winner is financially good, they can transfer their raffle winnings of 0.001BTC for any of these projects by contacting respective persons.

As I have already said in the ANN topic, these fun lotteries will be hosted each month and the rules are same as the previous. With the November cooling period coming to an end, @ragavancoin can start participating in these raffles starting from this month until they win another.

About the Game :

1. This is a pretty simple and quite interesting game, where there would be 16 spots from 0-9 and a-f. Each person should pick one character and post in the reply of this topic along with their bitcoin address.

2. Once all the 16 spots are filled, I will choose one single future block to be mined. For instance person X has chosen '4' as their spot and I have chosen block #625819. Here the hash of the block #625819 is 0000000000000000000e1089abf14e4643daef0479c7686f4d3b1fab253f2ac4 which determines that 4 is the winning character.

3. The person who has chosen the correct character wins the prize amount of 0.001BTC (Please note that 0.001BTC is kinda cheaper but in terms of our economy it costs around 700 INR which is much better)

As per rules, they are mostly the same as followed in the previous raffle topics

Rules :

1. The game is strictly restricted only to Indian forum members. If you are someone outside India or hailing from nearby countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan or Sri Lanka, you are not allowed to participate in this game.

2. Previous lottery winners cannot participate in the upcoming games for 6 months. Let us give others a chance to win some bitcoins. You can consider this 6 months as a cooling period like if some X has won the game in January, they can participate only in the August lottery.
This rule is applicable for Speculation Game winner as well. Our local community is so small such that I have reduced the period to 6 months. If in future, we rise up to one of the most populated local boards I might change the rule such that the game winners cannot participate in the upcoming lotteries for over a year.

3. There are 16 spots and only 1 slot per person is allowed and more importantly I cannot give you any random spots. Once I have updated the slot in OP, there is no changing of slot numbers. Please see to the filled spots in OP/ have an eye on picked up spots by others before posting your slot number in reply.

4. Newbies are allowed to participate, but you shouldn't have made your first post in this topic and You might have been a old guy but isn't really an active poster.

5. This topic is only for playing the game and all the other discussions and doubts regarding the raffle or future game ideas should be posted only in the Indian Raffle Discussion topic.

6. Bounty Hunters are not allowed to participate in the game. Even though if you are from India, the board doesn't need bounty hunters who are chiming here only for profits or earning money from this forum.

8  Local / India / Thoughts and Suggestions on unofficial rules being followed in Indian board on: April 17, 2020, 07:13:32 PM
So, for quite some time I have been confused about the rules which are being followed up in the Indian board. There was Benson back in 2013-2017 who made up the now available unofficial rules, but they have been outdated and many of the new members aren't still following up them quite actively and are making up their own rules for the board. Since the forum on the whole relies on the idea of decentralization and free speech, devising certain specific rules is not really advisable but on the other hand leaving up random spam topics in various parts of the local board would clutter the whole Indian board quite sooner.

There are no official rules and there shouldn't be any official rules forever and this is how a decentralized forum should work based on the inputs gained from various community members. S_D the author of original Unofficial rules of Indian forum is highly inactive and any new suggestions or improvements in forum (like Merit, DT decentralization etc) were never addressed in the topic and has been outdated since then.

S_D's contribution through the topic was certainly great but shouldn't we move forward by having more inputs from community members?

- Scam Accusations and Reputations of a bitcoin based company is being posted in the main board but they do find a place in the Buyer/ Seller Reputations (India) board.

- Similarly, Press & News from India board should consist of news paper clippings which highlights about cryptocurrency standards being followed in India which isn't currently happening. Many newbie accounts are posting stuffs which are being published in newspaper and doesn't relate to bitcoin in general.

- Regional Languages (India) sub board seems to be rotten. Shitposting newbies from various parts of our country are churning out shits in the form of posts. We never have any good discussions going over there in our Indian languages.

India is a complex country where we speak a large number of languages and follow a varied number of traditions. So my idea is to have the main Indian board to be present in English and move our Indian language topics to Regional Languages (India) sub board. What are your thoughts on this suggestion?

- Marketplace (India) : Since, the board is dedicated to India I hope dealing with currencies other than INR shouldn't be allowed. I have seen newbies posting stuffs like selling bitcoin for EUR, USD and other global currencies. What is the purpose of selling Bitcoin other than INR in an Indian board  Huh

What are the community thoughts on framing certain set of new unofficial rules which can make our local board more organised for new members?
9  Local / India / [GREAT INDIAN LOTTERY] #4 - Pick a lucky number to win 0.001 bitcoin on: April 13, 2020, 08:55:48 PM
GREAT INDIAN LOTTERIES #4


The globe is marching towards uncertainty, fear and the risk of getting into another greater recession. As far as India is concerned we aren't among the worst affected nations and during this lockdown, I would like to announce the game for the month of April. At the time of writing, bitcoin is currently trading at ~5,00,000 INR / $6,800.

As I have already said in the ANN topic, these fun lotteries will be hosted each month on a particular day which is of historical significance in the history of bitcoin. With just over 29 more days left for the Third Great Halving Event and since there aren't any historical importance falling in the month of April, I am starting this raffle on a random day. As far as May Raffle is considered, it would start at the first week of May to fill up the slots as fast as we can before the halving event and we would be surely rolling by BLOCK #630,000. I believe this is one of the greatest historical importance, the day when bitcoin block rewards will be halved to 6.25BTC per block.

About the Game :

1. This is a pretty simple and quite interesting game, where there would be 16 spots from 0-9 and a-f. Each person should pick one character and post in the reply of this topic along with their bitcoin address.

2. Once all the 16 spots are filled, I will choose one single future block to be mined. For instance person X has chosen '4' as their spot and I have chosen block #625819. Here the hash of the block #625819 is 0000000000000000000e1089abf14e4643daef0479c7686f4d3b1fab253f2ac4 which determines that 4 is the winning character.

3. The person who has chosen the correct character wins the prize amount of 0.001BTC (Please note that 0.001BTC is kinda cheaper but in terms of our economy it costs around 500 INR which is much better)

As per rules, they are mostly the same as followed in the previous raffle topics

Rules :

1. The game is strictly restricted only to Indian forum members. If you are someone outside India or hailing from nearby countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan or Sri Lanka, you are not allowed to participate in this game.

2. Previous lottery winners cannot participate in the upcoming games for 6 months. Let us give others a chance to win some bitcoins. You can consider this 6 months as a cooling period like if some X has won the game in January, they can participate only in the August lottery.
This rule is applicable for Speculation Game winner as well. Our local community is so small such that I have reduced the period to 6 months. If in future, we rise up to one of the most populated local boards I might change the rule such that the game winners cannot participate in the upcoming lotteries for over a year.

3. There are 16 spots and only 1 slot per person is allowed and more importantly I cannot give you any random spots. Once I have updated the slot in OP, there is no changing of slot numbers. Please see to the filled spots in OP/ have an eye on picked up spots by others before posting your slot number in reply.

4. Newbies are allowed to participate, but you shouldn't have made your first post in this topic and You might have been a old guy but isn't really an active poster.

5. This topic is only for playing the game and all the other discussions and doubts regarding the raffle or future game ideas should be posted only in the Indian Raffle Discussion topic.

6. Bounty Hunters are not allowed to participate in the game. Even though if you are from India, the board doesn't need bounty hunters who are chiming here only for profits or earning money from this forum.

GREAT INDIAN LOTTERIES #3


Amid the worse prevailing conditions due to the virus outbreak and the huge dump in the market, I would like to announce the game for the month of March. At the time of writing, bitcoin is currently trading at $5400 and had dumped to over $3800 within 24 hours.

As I have already said in the ANN topic, these fun lotteries will be hosted each month on a particular day which is of historical significance in the history of bitcoin. Many of us would remember December 17,2017 the day when bitcoin reached its ATH price and the current market crash can be very well compared to the 2018 crypto dump. I believe this might be of historical importance, the day when bitcoin fell by 40-50% within 24 hours.

About the Game :

1. This is a pretty simple and quite interesting game, where there would be 16 spots from 0-9 and a-f. Each person should pick one character and post in the reply of this topic along with their bitcoin address.

2. Once all the 16 spots are filled, I will choose one single future block to be mined. For instance person X has chosen 'f' as their spot and I have chosen block #610750. Here the hash of the block #610750 is 0000000000000000000e7027f650de1e79d76cbe93f385d8032f7766df080f6f which determines that f is the winning character.

3. The person who has chosen the correct character wins the prize amount of 0.001BTC (Please note that 0.001BTC is kinda cheaper but in terms of our economy it costs around 400 INR which is much better)

As per rules, they are mostly the same as followed in the previous raffle topics

Rules :

1. The game is strictly restricted only to Indian forum members. If you are someone outside India or hailing from nearby countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan or Sri Lanka, you are not allowed to participate in this game.

2. Previous lottery winners cannot participate in the upcoming games for 6 months. Let us give others a chance to win some bitcoins. You can consider this 6 months as a cooling period like if some X has won the game in January, they can participate only in the August lottery.
This rule is applicable for Speculation Game winner as well. Our local community is so small such that I have reduced the period to 6 months. If in future, we rise up to one of the most populated local boards I might change the rule such that the game winners cannot participate in the upcoming lotteries for over a year.

3. There are 16 spots and only 1 slot per person is allowed and more importantly I cannot give you any random spots. Once I have updated the slot in OP, there is no changing of slot numbers.

11  Local / India / Thoughts on renaming of Buyer/Seller Reputations (India) child board on: March 13, 2020, 09:48:48 AM
There was a similar topic of mine which was posted about the same for receiving response on the renaming 2 months back in January. The topic was little misleading and was cumbersome to understand at the beginning and didn't evoke much interest among the members. Just requoting some parts of the topic for better response!

For quite some time, I have been unhappy about the minimal and confused usage of Child Boards here in the Indian local board. For example if someone comes up with a Scam Accusation on a particular Indian website or to solve their doubts regarding the reputation of an Indian website they don’t really have a board to post their queries apart from the main board. The Child Board Buyer/ Seller Reputations (India) seems to be useful only for posting the reputation of a trader or a particular person in detail and doesn’t seem to be useful for discussing about the reputation of an Indian company or something similar. Hence I would like to propose a solution for the situation by renaming the board to Scams Accusations / Reputations (India) instead of Buyer/ Seller Reputations (India).

Need thoughts and a Serious Discussion on this topic so that if many of us agree to this, we can suggest the proposal to theymos for renaming the board!

Apart from the above mentioned thoughts, I would also like to pitch a proposal on the Languages being used there. Probably since they are related to scams and reputations we could allow all the regional languages to be present there instead of reporting and moving those topics to Regional Languages board and limiting the board just for English posts
12  Local / India / [ANN] Bitcoin Core 0.19.1 is now available in TAMIL [Soon in Hindi and Telugu] on: March 10, 2020, 06:56:54 PM
Welcome to my 1000th post on the BTCitcointalk forum.  Cool

Introduction

I luckily got to know about bitcoin only in 2016 and registered here in this forum at the start of 2018. Right from the beginning, India was never favorable to Bitcoin in general and our media has been promoting the underlying technology and bitcoin in a bad light. Recently, we just got back our trading rights through the Supreme Court Judgement! Though we speak English for majority of the time in our country, Regional Languages or Languages being used in rural/urban India plays a major role in bringing any kind of web/mobile application to a wider reach among the targeted users.

An Indian High school student should speak better English than this regional local language to cherish in his career. This is how we have been taught and this is how most of us had been brought up but I would never argue this is wrong and at the same time betraying our own local language for the promotion of a foreign language like English shouldn't be encouraged upon. English had become mandatory for every one of us to survive in a corporate world and in order to sustain in India. But I have a firm belief that Regional Languages still play a role to connect any new idea to the regional people. This has been quite evident from the sales of newspapers. Even today, a regional language newspaper sells higher in number than a English paper like "The Hindu" or "Indian Express" .

Similarly I feel like the primary satoshi Bitcoin client should be present in our Regional Languages like Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali as well.

I've been working on the translation work for over 6 months (both bitcoin.org and Bitcoin Core) when my real life allows me to do so. I speak, read and write 3 of the major languages and Tamil is one among them. There was over 10-20% automated translations made by various Indians prior to myself getting involved in the process and I started the Tamil translation from scratch. I thereby tried to re-edit and translate majority of the whole software in Tamil.

Finally after the recent translation merges in github and the release of 0.19.1 Tamil becomes the First Indian Language to be present in Bitcoin Core.  Cool

How to Upgrade Bitcoin Core to Tamil

Download link:

https://bitcoincore.org/bin/bitcoin-core-0.19.1/

If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely
shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), then run the
installer (on Windows) or just copy over /Applications/Bitcoin-Qt (on Mac)
or bitcoind/bitcoin-qt (on Linux).

Once you have installed Bitcoin Core in your PC, click on

Settings -> Options -> Open Configuration File


Once you have clicked upon the "Open Configuration File", an empty notepad will be opening up. Type

Code:
lang=ta

in the notepad, click on Save and close the notepad. Close the Bitcoin Core application and reopen it again. You will be viewing and using the Tamil Version of Bitcoin Core.

Please Note : The Tamil translation is in final stages of review and I would probably be finishing it up in the 0.20 release. Till then, there would be minor bugs in grammar and stuffs. I have started working on the bitcoin.org Tamil translation and simultaneously working on Hindi and Telugu versions of Bitcoin Core as well.

Screenshots:











How to translate Bitcoin Core in other Indian Languages:

The translations of Bitcoin Core primarily occurs on a translation website called Transifex

The complete process for translating Bitcoin Core in your native Indian languages is listed here : Translating Bitcoin Core



Thanks to akhjob for motivating and helping me in translating the application in Tamil.

13  Local / India / [GREAT INDIAN LOTTERY] #2 - Pick a lucky number to win 0.001 bitcoin on: February 06, 2020, 08:25:30 AM
GREAT INDIAN LOTTERIES #2


Quote from: dwdollar
I am trying to create a market where Bitcoins are treated as a commodity.  People will be able to trade Bitcoins for dollars and speculate on the value.  In theory, this will establish a real-time exchange rate so we will all have a clue what the current value of a Bitcoin is, compared to a dollar.  I have an early version up at http://98.168.168.27:8080/

This is only a small demonstration of what I have in mind and to show everyone I'm actively working on it.  Feel free to register and try it out.  You will get 10 phoney dollars and 10,000 phoney bitcoins to trade.  ONLY the limit orders work.  Market orders will come later.

The First Bitcoin Exchange is 10 years old! Exactly 10 years ago i.e on February 06,2010 a bitcointalk user named dwdollar implemented his idea of creating the first bitcoin exchange. Before the creation of exchange, bitcoin users were using bitcoin just as a fun freebie token and was worth 1,578.77BTC per USD. Based on the mining charges and the widespread interest, bitcoin got a value in the www.bitcoinmarket.com exchange and was first considered as a commodity!

As I have already said in the ANN topic, these fun lotteries will be hosted each month on a particular day which is of historical significance in the history of bitcoin and today on this day (the creation of first bitcoin exchange) I would like to launch the game for the month of February.

About the Game :

1. This is a pretty simple and quite interesting game, where there would be 16 spots from 0-9 and a-f. Each person should pick one character and post in the reply of this topic along with their bitcoin address.

2. Once all the 16 spots are filled, I will choose one single future block to be mined. For instance person X has chosen 'f' as their spot and I have chosen block #610750. Here the hash of the block #610750 is 0000000000000000000e7027f650de1e79d76cbe93f385d8032f7766df080f6f which determines that f is the winning character.

3. The person who has chosen the correct character wins the prize amount of 0.001BTC (Please note that 0.001BTC is kinda cheaper but in terms of our economy it costs around 650 INR which is much better)

As per rules, they are mostly the same as followed in the first raffle topic

Rules :

1. The game is strictly restricted only to Indian forum members. If you are someone outside India or hailing from nearby countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan or Sri Lanka, you are not allowed to participate in this game.

2. Previous lottery winners cannot participate in the upcoming games for 6 months. Let us give others a chance to win some bitcoins. You can consider this 6 months as a cooling period like if some X has won the game in January, they can participate only in the August lottery.
This rule is applicable for Speculation Game winner as well. Our local community is so small such that I have reduced the period to 6 months. If in future, we rise up to one of the most populated local boards I might change the rule such that the game winners cannot participate in the upcoming lotteries for over a year.

3. There are 16 spots and only 1 slot per person is allowed and more importantly I cannot give you any random spots. Once I have updated the slot in OP, there is no changing of slot numbers. Please see to the filled spots in OP/ have an eye on picked up spots by others before posting your slot number in reply.

4. Newbies are allowed to participate, but you shouldn't have made your first post in this topic and You might have been a old guy but isn't really an active poster.

5. This topic is only for playing the game and all the other discussions and doubts regarding the raffle or future game ideas should be posted only in the Indian Raffle Discussion topic.

6. Bounty Hunters are not allowed to participate in the game. Even though if you are from India, the board doesn't need bounty hunters who are chiming here only for profits or earning money from this forum.

14  Economy / Reputation / Overview of recent username changes in Bitcointalk on: January 08, 2020, 03:12:22 PM
Recently we have been noticing quite a handful of username changes and some does seem to create confusion among other forum users like this situation or this situation. If there is a name change of notable user or someone who have been here for long time, it would be better if they have made a post or report on the same for their name change. Some forum accounts are identified only through their reputation and it is quite important in a forum where money is involved.

For instance, we never knew the real name of satoshi but the alias was very important in the creation of bitcoin. Similarly, there are quite a handful of us where this forum name would be literally well known and would be considered as an important identity. If someone is willing to report their name change in forum could use this topic or create a newer one.
15  Local / India / Brainstorming various ideas for Reshaping the Indian Board on: January 05, 2020, 09:06:28 PM
For quite a long time (may be over a year) we have been discussing various problems which are being faced in the Indian board after the prolonged inactivity of Benson right from the middle of 2017. Benson was a great moderator who had a major role in shaping the Indian bitcoin community in general. But after the legalization practices undertaken by our government, many of the forum members were not really used to the idea of contributing or posting in Indian section of the forum.

Apart from that, a majority of old timers has left the forum as a result of ongoing spam in 2017-2018. They felt like the forum was diluted with very low level of posts being posted here. To mitigate these problems and to bring back the board as to how it was back in 2013, we the remaining Indian forum members should take certain steps in minimizing these situations.

Please read this topic completely before arriving at any conclusions or making any posts. It might be a little lengthy, but most of us should have a complete read. Another important note is that, we must be reshaping the board well before another bull run to face the major horde of spammers who would flock here to spam or to destroy the board completely. These ideas, topics, games, evoking interest among other Indian members are for the sole purpose of engaging the community for quality discussions and also in preparing this board well before spammers flocking up here in huge numbers.

Here are some of the ideas which I have been thinking for some time and could help in initiating this discussion :

1. Pinned Topics

The foremost problem which we were facing is the unnecessary inclusion of pinned topics in the main Indian board. The topics didn't serve the purpose and were least helpful to any of the newbies here. To prevent the unnecessary spam, we have cumulatively and repeatedly reported the topics and hence the previous topics were unpinned from main board. Some of the topics which still doesn’t serve the purpose and are present here just to pollute the board

  • An Easy way to understand Bitcoin – The topic was pinned back during the early days of the forum and they are no way helpful to newbies or seasoned members. We could report them and unpin them and instead have a kind of topic which will educate the newbies on bitcoin. I would like any of them to take the initiative and start a topic by explaining bitcoin in a very easier way.
  • Welcome to Indians – The topic similar to 'Easy way to understand Bitcoin' wasn’t really helpful and has been used as a frog pond to spam with redundant posts like “Thank You”, “Pleased to be here” etc. Instead, I have thought of creating a topic (under construction) which doesn’t ruin the essence of “Welcome to Indians” topic but would be more of a decent explanatory. I would like to hear community opinions on what can we include on this topic as it could become one of the most important topics if our country got to know about bitcointalk on a larger scale.

2. Merit Sources

There was a long term concern on we don’t have any merit sources and people thought like, even after contributing we won’t be able to rank up and those finally came to an end. If you create good quality topics and posts, you would be receiving a certain amount of merits and if they are really good others who have enough smerits could help by meriting them as well. So people shouldn’t worry about ranking up or gaining merits as far as Indian board is concerned provided they post good content.
Try to contribute more, bring up quality discussions and I assure you that even Indian members could rank up to higher ranks.  Newbies at heart, try to contribute utmost and you will receive some decent amount of merits only from the Indian board.

3. Renaming and Creation of certain Child Boards

For quite some time, I have been unhappy about the minimal and confused usage of Child Boards here in the Indian local board. For example if someone comes up with a Scam Accusation on a particular Indian website or to solve their doubts regarding the reputation of an Indian website they don’t really have a board to post their queries apart from the main board. The Child Board Buyer/ Seller Reputations (India) seems to be useful only for posting the reputation of a trader or a particular person in detail and doesn’t seem to be useful for discussing about the reputation of an Indian company or something similar. Hence I would like to propose a solution for the situation by renaming the board to Scams / Reputations (India) instead of Buyer/ Seller Reputations (India).

We could consider another example for the above situation, where a particular forum member is asking about that if freebitco.in is legit or a scam? Does that really need to be present in the main board?



I have been disheartened about the involvement of Indians in bitcoin or how badly bitcoin is being preached to the general public. We have some of the better programmers out in our country but none had been involved in the development of bitcoin or generally to the contribution of bitcoin. Everyone have been trying to trade and weed-out profits and trying to shed bitcoin in a bad light.

To counter this and to increase the adoption, I suggest for the creation of a separate Child Board dedicated to learning about the Bitcoin Development and also for Translating Bitcoin Whitepaper, bitcoin.org and Bitcoin Core to various Indian Languages. What are the communities thoughts on this idea? If there is a board for the same being created can we name them “Bitcoin : Development and Translation (India)”?

4. Languages being used in the Indian board

Well this section seems to be one of the controversial in terms of our country is concerned. According to the Articles 344(1) and 351 of the Indian Constitution we have over 22 major languages but all of us present here doesn’t really know all these 22 major languages and we abide by the fact that English is the common language which connects the Indian netizens and thereby we have been using them for quite a long time.

How can we overcome this barrier of teaching bitcoin to the non-English speaking or in the sense bad English speakers we have in our country and who could sign up here in future? Is Regional Languages board enough for them to learn all by their own? Should Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Kashmiri, Malayalam, Marathi, Odia, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu be restricted only to the Regional Languages board? Is bitcoin.org and Bitcoin Core is sufficient to be present in English?

P. S To prepare the board for bull run and to create a healthy community in future, I would like everyone reading this topic to chime in and give your thoughts on these ideas and suggestions. If you have any additional interesting ideas, please post them here and we can discuss regarding the same.

Self-moderated to prevent newbie spam.
16  Local / India / [GREAT INDIAN RAFFLE] #1 - Game On until bitcoin in escrow lasts - Win 0.001 btc on: January 01, 2020, 12:17:04 PM
GREAT INDIAN RAFFLES #1


"A decentralized digital currency is a pathway to many abilities, our government considered it to be unnatural."
Quotes from a galaxy far, far away...

Happy New Year everyone!

To engage the community even more and as a token of appreciation to all the Indian forum members who are making this board a delightful place to stay even during the adverse Bitcoin conditions prevailing in India, I would like to launch these Raffles which will run for the whole year in terms of monthly events.

Raffle :

1. This is a pretty simple and quite interesting game, where there would be 16 spots from 0-9 and a-f. Each person should pick one character and post in the reply of this topic along with their bitcoin address.

2. Once all the 16 spots are filled, I will choose one single future block to be mined. For instance person X has chosen 'f' as their spot and I have chosen block #610750. Here the hash of the block #610750 is 0000000000000000000e7027f650de1e79d76cbe93f385d8032f7766df080f6f which determines that f is the winning character.

3. The person who has chosen the correct character wins the prize amount of 0.001BTC (Please note that 0.001BTC is kinda cheaper but in terms of our economy it costs around 500 INR which is much better)

As per rules, they are mostly the same as followed in the speculation game topic

Rules :

1. Raffles are strictly restricted only to Indian forum members. If you are someone outside India or hailing from nearby countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan or Sri Lanka, you are not allowed to participate in the raffle.

2. Previous Raffle Winners cannot participate in the upcoming raffles for 6 months. Let us give others a chance to win some bitcoins. You can consider this 6 months as a cooling period like if some X has won the raffle in January, they can participate only in the August Raffle.
This rule is applicable for Speculation Game winner as well. Our local community is so small such that I have reduced the period to 6 months. If in future, we rise up to one of the most populated local boards I might change the rule such that the raffle winners cannot participate in the upcoming raffle for over a year.

3. There are 16 spots and only 1 slot per person is allowed and more importantly I cannot give you any random spots. Once I have updated the slot in OP, there is no changing of slot numbers. Please see to the filled spots in OP/ have an eye on picked up spots by others before posting your slot number in reply.

4. Newbies are allowed to participate, but you shouldn't have made your first post in this topic and You might have been a old guy but isn't really an active poster.

5. This topic is only for playing the game and all the other discussions and doubts regarding the raffle or future game ideas should be posted only in the Indian Raffle Discussion topic.

6. Bounty Hunters are not allowed to participate in the raffle. Even though if you are from India, the board doesn't need bounty hunters who are chiming here only for profits or earning money from this forum.

17  Local / India / [ANN] GREAT INDIAN RAFFLES - Game On until bitcoin in escrow lasts!!! on: December 29, 2019, 07:42:50 PM
GREAT INDIAN RAFFLES


"A decentralized digital currency is a pathway to many abilities, our government considered it to be unnatural."
Quotes from a galaxy far, far away...

To engage the community even more and as a token of appreciation to all the Indian forum members who are making this board a delightful place to stay even during the adverse Bitcoin conditions prevailing in India, I would like to launch these Raffles which will run for the whole year in terms of monthly events no matter what. At present the escrow wallet consists of 0.012BTC and the amount will be divided for 12 months and these raffles would continue forever until people stop donating to the escrow wallet. When the escrow wallet reaches the saturation stage, the raffles would stop and would continue again when the wallet fills up.

Raffle :

1. The raffle will be hosted each month (starting from January 2020) on a particular day which is of historical significance in the history of bitcoin. It might be the day when first bitcoin transaction took place, when Mt.Gox got collapsed, when there were important improvements in bitcoin economy etc. They are random dates chosen by me and if you would like to join the contest, you should be visiting the Indian board daily and have an eye on the main board for you not to miss the raffle before they get filled up.

2. The raffles consists of 16 spots, 0-9 and a-f and a member can choose only one spot. Once all the 16 spots are full, I will choose a future block to be mined and the last character of the hash determines the winner spot.

3. The winner would receive 0.001BTC which will be sent by DarkStar_ from the escrow wallet.

Rules :

1. Raffles are strictly restricted only to Indian forum members. If you are someone outside India or hailing from nearby countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan or Sri Lanka, you are not allowed to participate in the raffle.

2. Previous Raffle Winners cannot participate in the upcoming raffles for 6 months. Let us give others a chance to win some bitcoins. You can consider this 6 months as a cooling period like if some X has won the raffle in January, they can participate only in the August Raffle.
This rule is applicable for Speculation Game winner as well. Our local community is so small such that I have reduced the period to 6 months. If in future, we rise up to one of the most populated local boards I might change the rule such that the raffle winners cannot participate in the upcoming raffle for over a year.

3. The raffles will last until there is no amount left in the escrow wallet or if anyone of us has stopped sending the coins to that wallet.

4. There are 16 spots and only 1 slot per person is allowed and more importantly I cannot give you any random spots. Once I have updated the slot in OP, there is no changing of slot numbers. Please see to the filled spots in OP before posting your slot number in reply.

5. I do know the winning amount is quite small, but this 0.001BTC will help us to have a 3-time meal in a day in India.

6. As of now, these raffles will occur on all the months and will be conducted on one particular day of the month in which there was a major bitcoin event in history. The first raffle will start on 1st January 2020 and will occur on all months till bitcoins in the wallet gets emptied up.

7. Newbies are allowed to participate, but you shouldn't have made your first post in this topic and You might have been a old guy but isn't really an active poster.

8. Bounty Hunters are not allowed to participate in the raffle. Even though if you are from India, the board doesn't need bounty hunters who are chiming here only for profits or earning money from this forum.

Winners :

Raffle winners would be updated periodically here.  Smiley

18  Local / Marketplace (India) / [INTEREST CHECK] Group Buy for 10th anniversary Bitcointalk Coldkey collectible on: November 24, 2019, 09:27:16 AM
Hello everyone,

9 months ago theymos pitched the idea of creating a collectible dedicated for the bitcointalk community and to be given to the forum users in return for what they have contributed all these years for the community. Then yogg came up with his idea of creating a Coldkey Card dedicated for the bitcointalk community and over the days it got shaped well into a really good collectible item. Here is the announcement for the Coldkey cards : 10 years of Bitcointalk commemorative Coldkey and here is the Coldkey site for purchasing the bitcointalk card : 10th Anniversary of Bitcointalk Commemorative Coldkey

The collectible card took into a great shape and here we have them finally for holding them in hand. A true bitcointalk forum user would have them in hand for sure as it would be a symbol for what we have been doing in Internet for all these days (for over 6 years to some months for newbies).



What are Coldkey cards?

Coldkeys are a new brand of collectible cards being made by our very own trustworthy forum user yogg and theymos has himself asked us to take a look into the collectible cards which are dedicated for the celebrating the 10th forum anniversary.

Prices and the Process of Group Buy :

10th anniversary bitcointalk Coldkey cards can be ordered in various designs which were made by various bitcointalk members and each card would cost as low as only 14.90€ ~ 1180 INR. The shipping would cost an additional 8€.

Here are the designs in which Coldkey cards can be purchased :

1. geophphreigh



2. Yatsan



3. madnessteat



4. palukritik



5. jayguar



6. LbtalkL



7. polymerbit





How will this group buy occur :

1. You need to mention how many cards you need in your reply along with the design you need.

2. I will collect the btc and I would make the purchase on behalf of you and get them shipped to me.

3. From there I would be re-shipping to other states for forum members. We all know that India Post has a very low shipping cost and I guess the total cost for shipping from me to you would be around less than 100 INR.

Why am I doing this?

I don’t charge any extra costs apart from the shipping prices and if possible some negligible fee for packaging costs. If we ship from yogg to India (i.e to me) that would save us a majority of shipping fee and also would help us to buy this bitcointalk collectible in a very cheaper price. If there is more interest, we can ask yogg for any discount on this group buy as well.

For example, if we order 8 cards on total, the total shipping to me would cost around only 8€ i.e 1€ per card and from there around 50-100 INR to reshipping it to you. I am sure people involved in crypto and particularly in this forum wouldn't have a great deal in spending 15 EUR for a collectible card.

Another problem is that, myself or someone order it as a single card, we would need to pay 8 EUR for this and if purchasing through the group buy we can save costs on shipping. The card itself is must have for any bitcointalk user in my opinion.  Smiley

Import Fees :

I have received collectibles from various countries (USA, EU) to India and there is a VAT fee only for Silver items. Cards and other coins are never charged and is absolutely free of cost as far as I know.



Willing to hear other’s opinions and suggestions on this!
19  Economy / Reputation / Trolls, delusions, dramas and a lot more in Indian local board on: November 13, 2019, 07:00:12 AM
Glad to know that Rotten Egg (one of the well known trolls of the Indian sub-section) has started making claims regarding myself and others who are supporting DarkStar_ for getting into DT, being a merit source and a lot more. So, here is a brief list of events which happened over in the Indian board in the last few days and which triggered Rotten Egg's activity to more than 10 within a couple of days :

I have been silently meriting, reporting posts in the Indian board for quite a long time (less than 2 years since when I got to know about the Report to Moderator feature). To make the board even more responsive and active I created various topics and even pitched the idea to celebrate 10th anniversary of the forum in the Indian local board. Here is the topic regarding the same : Ideas and Thoughts for celebrating 10th Bitcointalk Anniversary in Indian board

Many of the Indian posters willingly said they would like to donate some btc for the welfare of the forum and to bring the board back from dead. I was not willing to escrow the amount and hence said either DarkStar_ or krogothmanhattan or bl4nkcode could escrow the amount. Here is the post regarding that :

May be we can get a donation from other members as well and create a wallet whose private key you or an escrow can hold and give it to the winner at the end of the day.
Holding of anyone's personal funds by myself would be a really bad idea to proceed with as there would be unnecessary chaos among other members who are not really willing to trust me with the money. We can hire either someone like DarkStar_, krogothmanhattan or bL4nkcode (probably there are more reputed escrows) and I guess they wouldn't be imposing any fees for the escrow amount as this initiative is for a good cause and not for trading goods as such.

Yup, I can escrow for free for this if needed. Let me know if you end up going ahead with it.

ShashiRaJaVu said that it will be even more good to connect with the people of same nationality if we create a telegram group dedicated for the Indian bitcointalk people and this was the sole reason I created a telegram group. Almost all the reputed people are present over there. One anonymous user who was not willing to reveal his forum user name stepped in the group from nowhere and started arguing that I am imposing DarkStar_ to be the escrow on others and he was not willing to hire an escrow of Canadian descent for an Indian event. Hence we conducted the poll and many of them voted for DarkStar_ (probably we trusted DarkStar_ more with the money since they were very much experienced in handling escrows). There was a tie between DarkStar_ and legendster and since even legendster himself has favored DarkStar_ we went for DarkStar_ to be the escrow.

Here is the post for that :

Think I have voiced my opinion on this before. Thanks for the consideration. I don't think anyone could be a better option than Darkstar_ here because unlike me, he is really trusted by many people on this forum and he has proved his mettle.

Though this is no endorsement, just my opinion which is unbiased despite him helping me in my time of need.

Rotten Egg claimed that myself and others are willingly wooing DarkStar_ to be the escrow so that we could get into default trust. Avirunes was another trustworthy DT hailing from India and he was not willing to take up the escrow. chronicsky was the most trusted user hailing from India and they themselves has favored DarkStar_ for the escrow.

Post for reference :

First of all, the whole poll is meaningless if DS is there. Others are just no match with the trustworthiness of DS, who is entrusted by theymos to HODL a key for the forum fund. But, at the same time, this is an Indian thing, where we are not allowing non-Indian users. Hence, escrow should be Indian as well. A global celebration is already taking place in Meta run by theymos. I dont know, whether DS saw this thread and showed interest himself or some manipulative guy invited him here to complicate the process. Having seen lot of scammers before, I can somehow sense the modus operandi of a scammer. It seems, someone here wants to woo DS to be entrusted by him to get into DT2. That is when, we'll start to witness the real drama

I would like DarkStar_ to step upon this topic to prove that he hasn't been been invited by anyone and he just came through this topic with maggiordomo bot triggering a notification since I have tagged them in the prior post regarding who should escrow!

The speculation contest was more or less similar to micg's prediction topic. Hence I PMd micg to use their idea and none of us asked them to donate or so. They donated 0.01 btc willingly to bring the Indian forum back from dead and it was really an honour for us (Indian forum users). The donation amount is being held by DarkStar_ and would be paid for over an year by conducting raffles and we are also willing to donate for developers and translators of Bitcoin Core and bitcoin.org in Indian languages.

Since I disclosed Heisenberg_Hunter's plan to slip to DefaultTrust, become a merit source and moderator of India sub-forum he is fanatically reporting my posts. Some of his alts friends may have join the process as well. So, I am hereby requesting Mods to please read my post before deleting. Below is an example of wrong deletion, where I outed Heisenberg_Hunter to unlock his speculation game thread to allow his friend to edit their post.
Regarding this claim, I was the one who reported the post since it was off-topic and was totally unrelated. I have asked for Rotten Egg to create a Reputation topic against me but they didn't do that!

hacker1001101001 has posted the similar price as like akram143 ($9500) and since I noticed the post only at November 11 (after a day the topic was closed), I made a post in Telegram group dedicated for the Indian subforum asking to edit their price since it was similar to akram's price. If I had known about the similar price posts on November 10, I would have asked that prior to the locking of the topic. And more importantly hacker1001101001 has posted the wrong price well before the deadline date and I believe it was not wrong on my part asking them to edit the price and post a new price since the price was clashing with that of akram.

If that's totally a wrong move from the community's point of view, I would never take the price into consideration.

The telegram group consists of almost everyone of the reputed Indian users as well as New members. I am not willing to reveal the names of users, but if someone is willing to know they could PM me regarding the same and verify with them.




Regarding my contribution to the community, I am not a low level asshole like Rotten Egg hiding behind an alt account and never contributing anything for the Indian community apart from trolling people here and ejecting shit over here. Apart from contributing to the Indian forum for over 2 years (through reports) and by evoking interest among participants by organizing various activities for over 6 months, I have been a tester of Bitcoin Core and also a translator of Bitcoin Core and bitcoin.org in 3 languages. I am the coordinator and reviewer for an Indian language. If you have any doubts regarding my selfless contribution to the bitcoin community, anyone can PM either Will Binns (Lead Maintainer of bitcoin.org) or laanwj (Lead Maintainer of Core) and ask about my translation contribution through Transifex or through github or through Telegram.

P.S Everything is in English right from forum posts and telegram posts! It would be easier for anyone to read and judge anything related to the local board!
20  Local / India / [ANN]Speculation Game -10th anniversary Indian Forum Celebration-Win 0.002211btc on: November 05, 2019, 08:06:54 PM

Escrow and Future Development Ideas :

The funds which are donated by the Indian forum users and micgoossens would be used for further development of the sub-forum and would also be paid for developers and translators who would be helping the bitcoin ecosystem by contributing to the Core development and for translating Bitcoin Core software and bitcoin.org in native Indian languages. The escrow for the collected funds will be held by DarkStar_ and the payment would be made from the escrow wallet.

Indian developers are quite brilliant but since bitcoin is being promoted in a wrong way of get rich quick scheme almost 90% of them aren't really aware that they could contribute to the Core development. Along with that, India is a country with rich old languages and tradition and hence Bitcoin Core and bitcoin.org present in various Indian languages would help the country to get adopted even higher than it is now. Kindly promote this topic to all the Indian developers you encounter IRL and they would get paid for their work.

Right now Bitcoin Core is available completely only in Tamil and we need to make the languages even more higher. Similarly bitcoin.org is available only in Hindi which should be increased for better connectivity among fellow Indians.
