Всем привет. Я вдохновленный темами некоторых форумчан, и в связи ужесточениями правил на форуме, тоже решил помочь людям добыть этот злополучный мерит.

Вы шлете мне в личку ссылку на пост. Я смотрю, и если меня все устраивает ставлю вам мерит.

В каком случае стоит подавать "заявку":
1. Если вы считаете что ваш пост недооценили и он все же был информативен и полезен
2. Если у вас нормальная (по моему мнению) пост хистори

Разумеется оценивать я буду по своим личных критериям. Как писать хорошие посты есть довольно много тем на форуме, вот некоторые из них:

6  Other / Beginners & Help / Security - router on: September 04, 2018, 07:30:01 PM
It is based on real history.

For those who are too lazy to read at once I write that basically it is necessary to monitor two things in the router through which you connect to the Internet:
  • in the DNS configuration, there should be no left garbage;
  • it must be ensured that no one can write garbage in the DNS configuration;
  • it is desirable that the firmware file of the router be the same as the firmware file on the manufacturer's website (check for checksums).
If you click this point, at the most, outside hackers will know which sites you are visiting. In the worst you will be sent to a phishing site with all the ensuing consequences.

Now my story.

Recently I changed my place of residence and connected the Internet to a new place. On the old one was the ADSL, on the new optics 100 MB / s. I did not have my own router. The old router had factory default settings that were protected, that is, it was only possible to connect to it after the first power-up on the LAN port.

A specialist from the provider came to me with a router. He started connecting the router and without permission changed the DNS settings from auto to manual. Well, I was a little surprised. Then I was even more surprised when he entered the DNS server address without my permission. All this was happening in front of me. It's just that I've never seen such an ip in my city. Strange some kind of provider settings, I thought. I thought: when I have free time - I read the instructions, it will be necessary to understand. In the meantime, let everything remain so, I will not touch anything, it's with the factory settings - it means protected.

Further I was engaged in crypto-currency affairs and noticed a few oddities: in the first days with me at the height of the activity, the router rebooted itself. I thought (well, I'm an asshole!) That it could not stand my pressure surfing. After 2 weeks for some strange reason, the session on the exchange dropped a couple of times, which usually happened when I visited it from another computer. (I still remember that fortunately, shortly before this, everything was taken from exchange to a local wallet). Well, I went into the router, it seems everything is fine, just in case I put the password on the admin.

After another 2 weeks, they took up my arms tightly. All exchanges either did not download, or began to give out messages "the site does not give out for who it is", etc. When connecting through VPN, everything was OK and I immediately realized that I was wrong not having to deal with the router right away. After changing DNS from the manual on the car it all worked. I quit all the business and took up the settings.

In the process of parsing it turned out that everything is sad. The router was one solid dirty hole:
  • the factory settings are such that anyone without a password can connect via LAN, Wi-Fi and WAN and change the settings as you like (but when you save, you will need to reboot the router - I wrote above how it rebooted itself)
  • a brief instruction on a piece of paper from the box did not warn about the vulnerability
  • help instruction in English for each setting is useful, but about the vulnerability nothing was said
In general, I had to deal with trial and error, experimentally, I found the entire vulnerability of the product and the absurdity of the factory settings. So keep in mind that this also happens and do not relax.
What in this case to do - decide for yourself. I'll write what I did, in chronological order, with frequent save-reboots of the router:

  • disconnect WAN cable
  • Resetting settings to the factory and immediately password-protected admin and user with changing names to other
  • disable wifi
  • setting up an Internet connection, connecting a WAN cable, downloading the latest firmware, disconnecting the WAN cable (!), updating the firmware. By the way, the firmware update does not reset the settings to the factory ones, which is not right in my opinion.
  • reset the settings to the factory settings, immediately protect the admin and user, for reliability with changing the names
  • Wi-Fi password
  • set up the Internet
  • connect a WAN cable
  • with a router everything, now go change passwords on websites
And for the future if I ever connect the Internet somewhere, the connection specialist will come, connect the wires, check that everything is working and will be removed with his router. For the house, the router will be purchased at the store.

Thank you for your attention, take care of the freaks.

Observing on the forum a lot of diverse topics dedicated to security on the client side I'll try to combine the main points in a separate topic.

In the first post, we'll look at DNS security on the client side. So. Go!

Some viruses change the TCP / IP protocol setting in Windows OS by adding an incorrect DNS

What is this for?

To ensure that an unsuspecting user typing (correctly typing) the required site name in the address bar of the browser hit the fake resource and left its own data there.

An example is considered for the Windows operating system and a typical home (office) binder router-computer


We are looking at the properties of the TCP / IP connection, in the DNS properties it should be automatically set to google or google (, also check in the additional DNS tab whether there is anything else written there
if there is an unknown crap - put the setting on the machine, if in this case the Internet stops working, then we register the Google DNS,

Another way to find out if we were on a phishing site:

For the following manipulations, we need to know the IP addresses of the original site
For Windows - Start, execute, enter the command CMD, the command line will open. At the command prompt, enter nslookup and the name of the site we want to check
nslookup example
look at the result of the command, the command gives out the IP addresses of the server that we check
compare them with the original. Coincidentally - the site is original and the one that we need. It did not coincide - first of all we look at the settings of the DNS system as I described at the beginning of the post, the second setting of the router (if there are any questionable DNS servers) and if everything is alright - read the news for a DNS attack or for adding another range IP to this (checked) service.

P.S. if some IP address caused your suspicions go to the link drive the IP we need and look at it information

Additionally, I recommend that you familiarize yourself with the comrade's post
DarkNightRider about DNS security of your router

8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Alternatives to Coinmarketcap on: August 09, 2018, 10:34:09 AM
Hello. I believe that in the crypto world the strongest advantage is information, and the quality of information depends on our profits. So I decided to pick up some analogues to a popular resource for a more detailed study of the market. And as you know, the listing on Coinmarketcap costs money because of what there is a delay in the appearance of new coins.

1. WorldCoinIndex (
Practically a copy of cmc, with the same functionality, but new coins appear faster here.

2. Coingecko (
This resource provides additional functions for analysis such as a mining calculator, activity in social networks, activities and trend analysis. It also gives a very detailed description of all the coins.

3. Coincheckup (
On this resource you can see the dynamics of price changes of all coins as well as the most grown or sagged within 24 hours. The general trend of the market. You can sort all coins by category. Several types of analysis, interesting tools and a review of Ico are also offered.

4. Cryptocompare (
A lot of useful information from mining to purses. There is a forum. You can create and keep track of your portfolio. There are guides.

5. Сoindance (
An excellent project with a large number of infographics visually showing the market trends in recent years and for all time.


6. CoinCodex (
ICO Calendar, and token sales, news, portfolio, different guides how to buy currencies and market overview.


I hope these sites will help you better analyze the market.

9  Other / Beginners & Help / Guide for getting + Merit on: June 21, 2018, 01:27:20 PM
A guide for getting +Merit.

With the introduction of the new Merit system, many people have a question:
"And how do I raise my rank?"
This topic will provide you with an answer to the difficult question.

Here are the basic steps:

1. English language.
Learn and improve your English language, its spelling and grammar.
The Duolingo service will help you in this.
Also, try not to use such words as: Sir. & Mr., many do not like it.

2. Knowledge is power.
Plunge into the sea of ​​knowledge about crypto-currencies, keep abreast of the latest trends and updates.
Study popular topics on the forum and improve your knowledge and skills.
First of all, such topics as: Bitcoin Discussion, Development & Technical Discussion.
Also read all the topics that received the most amount of sMerit: Top-merited topics, all-time.
Read all the fixed topics in the English branch.
You should understand the meaning of such phrases as: Bitcoin Pizza Day (the original post Pizza for bitcoins?), 2011 bubble, Cyprus,
HODL (a little history of I AM HODLING) etc.
Also dont miss Bitcoin FAQ.

3. Write quality posts.
Become a quality poster. Remember that these are not necessarily long, boring posts.
It can be: qualitative answers or questions, themes created by you,
help other forum participants (for example TwitterAudit - Check your twitter for fakes - , then guys do a free audit, and some give merit),
you can create something that can be useful and something that will be appreciated (for example. Activity points calculator)

4. Be original and unique.
Do not repeat what has already been said. if necessary, add a link to the source in your post.

5. Catch fish in fishy places.

Keep your participation in Bounties programs to a minimum. Initially, it can be hard financially, however, in time, raising the rank, you will earn much more. Believe me, it's worth it.

7. Purposefulness.
Set a goal, this motivates and will help to go in front. Make a plan and act.
At the same time, Merit is not the goal itself, the priority is to create quality content that will become a source of merit.

8. Activity in business will lead you to success.
Taking an active part in the life of the forum and helping it develop, you will easily raise your rank, and most importantly get knowledge that will bring you pleasure and material prosperity.

11  Other / Beginners & Help / Manage work with reports on: June 13, 2018, 10:11:39 AM
I want to talk about one of the ways how to simplify the work with reports on Twitter.
And so, in order not to copy references on retweets every day and save them anywhere, I suggest the following method:

1. Do retweets / tweets throughout the work week of all the bounty companies.
2. On the day of the report on the work done, go to the site and be authorized through the app. Then heck if the nickname is the same and press the button "GET TWEETS", after which the service issues a report about all of our tweets and retweets. To find all the tweets / retweets of a certain company, press the key combination Ctrl + F / Cmd + F. Then enter the hash of companies (example: #VinChain) in the window, or simply the name. Next, we can see all of our tweets / retweets about the companies in the highlighted yellow / orange color, as well as the date of the performed action and the hyperlink on the right side. This method shortens the working time especially for those who conduct more than 20 bounties.
3. Copy\paste it in to your report.

This technique can also be used in Facebook.

1. Make reposts and posts during the week
2. On the day of the report, go to your profile and click on the action log button, look for the name of the company in the search, get a list of all shares, posts, comments and likes.
3. Copy\paste it in to your report.

Thank you for attention.
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / How to choose exchange. My experience on: June 02, 2018, 04:00:30 PM
Hello! I have been participating in the bounty since March this year. And I want to share my experience with the use of crypto-exchange exchanges.
At the moment, I have about 60 paid bounty coins (most are not yet traded, and I have already sold some). And about 80 coins with paid airdrops.

Let's start


The exchange on which I sold my first tokens. Exchange of high quality and high level of security. But it rarely happens on the listing of coins.

  • low commissions of trade
  • fast
  • intuitive interface
  • high level of security
  • large volumes

  • little tokens we need, they do not often leaf it
  • commission for the withdrawal of at least 0,01 ETH, keep in mind if you want to merge a small amount

   Conclusion: I recommend for constant trading


Exchange fork etherdelta, they have one smart contract. The exchange is similar to a drain pit. Many of those coins that have not yet entered the normal exchanges are traded, usually not large volumes. The price is often much lower than the ICO. I prefer to use this exchange only as a last resort, it is better to wait for the coin to exit to a normal exchange and sell at a higher price.

  • low commissions
  • verification is not needed for withdraw
  • a lot of tokens

  • no intuitive interface
  • sometimes slows down

   Conclusion: I recommend in cases when you need to merge a coin into which you do not believe or buy cheaply the one in which you are sure.


One of my favorite exchanges. Good volumes. I would recommend that novices take a closer look at it. Of course, not without flaws.
  • low commissions
  • verification is not needed for output
  • a lot of tokens
  • good volumes
  • a fairly clear interface

  • laggy, sometimes strongly
  • sometimes you have to wait for transactions
  • the minimum amount for an order  0.15 ETH (keep in mind at small volumes)

   Conclusion: I recommend for constant trading


Exchange with a suspicious reputation and good volumes. Personally, I have no problems with this exchange. I sold on it several types of coins, including the unsuccessfully sold MTC which is now very much increased in price.

  • verification is not needed for withdraw
  • a lot of tokens
  • good volumes
  • friendly interface
  • there is a demo version of the platform

  • is very slow on the list of tokens
  • a lot of feedback about the delay and freeze of transactions
  • if the network is overloaded, there is a risk that ETH can hang for 4 weeks (they warn about it)

   Conclusion: I recommend for trading carefully


KuCoin - the Hong Kong stock exchange Crypto-currency. Fast and safe.

  • a lot of currency pairs
  • fast
  • low commissions
  • friendly interface
  • verification is not needed to withdraw up to 2x BTC
  • mobile application
  • it is possible to receive income by storing  tokens on the balance

  • not convenient graphs for analysis
  • the minimum commission for withdrawal 0,01 ETH

   Conclusion: I recommend for constant trading


The Japanese exchange of crypto currencies is known primarily as a large exchange operator QUOINEX. Does not support fiat currencies.
Registered for the sake of one coin, as a result of 3 weeks waiting for verification to withdraw.

  • low commissions

  • verification is necessary for withdrawal (2-3 weeks)
  • no intuitive interface /li]
Conclusion: I do not recommend it. You can trade, but before the deposit go through verification.

[!] In all listed above exchanges there is a way of 2 factorial authorization ALWAYS use it!
[!] Add all exchanges to bookmarks, and never go from search engines!
[!] Three times double-check the purse number before deposit and withdrawal.

Useful links:

Boat notifying about the listing of coins:
Service in which you can set up alerts for interesting coins, their volumes, exchanges:

These are not all exchanges with which I happened to interact, the post will be updated.

Thank you for your attention.
Sorry for the mistakes in my English. I just want to share my experience.
