2  Local / Майнеры / Статистика продаж видеокарт 2017-2020 on: January 16, 2021, 09:14:21 AM
Собрал примерную статистику по продажам десктопных видеокарт в мире за 2017-2020 г., но так как информация по данным продаж очень противоречива, то получились очень приблизительные цифры, тем не менее они, как мне кажется, отображают более менее картину рынка в этом сегменте. Если у кого нибудь будут более точные данные по статистике сообщайте с указанием источника, таблицу откорректирую.


3  Other / Politics & Society / Those who stormed the Capitol received funding in BTC on: January 15, 2021, 10:11:39 AM
A month before the riots in Washington, the participants in the storming of the Capitol received $522,000 in bitcoin, analysts from Chainalysis said.

"It’s unclear to what degree the attack on the Capitol was planned in advance. ProPublica reports that in the weeks leading up, many Trump supporters discussed turning the event violent on Parler, a rightwing social media app now banned by most major tech platforms. However, we now have evidence that many alt-right groups and personalities, including Fuentes, received large Bitcoin donations in a single transaction that occurred a month before the riot on December 8. We have also gathered evidence that strongly suggests the donor was a now-deceased computer programmer based in France"

On January 6, Trump supporters broke into the Capitol, where Congress approved the results of the presidential election.

According to Chainalysis, on December 8, an unknown French blogger transferred 28.15 BTC to 22 wallets.  Far-right political commentator Nicholas Fuentes received the most 13.5 BTC during the assault, he spoke in the adjacent territory, analysts said.

4  Other / Serious discussion / Hidden miner attacked macOS for over five years on: January 15, 2021, 09:48:55 AM
MacOS-based computers have long been used by scammers for hidden cryptocurrency mining.  For five years, OSAMiner managed to evade detection, cybersecurity experts at SentinelOne said.

Malicious software appeared on the network no later than 2015. It was distributed through pirated games and other programs, including League of Legends and Microsoft Office for Mac.
OSAMiner primarily targets China and the Asia-Pacific region, according to researchers.

The specialists faced serious problems in obtaining the complete code of the malicious program; according to their statement, the final run only script was loaded already in a compiled form. This code is not human readable, which makes it difficult to analyze its safety

"However, with the help of a little-known applescript-disassembler project and a decompiler tool we developed here at SentinelLabs, we have been able to reverse these samples and can now reveal for the first time their internal logic along with further IoCs used in the campaign".
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / WeChat fake and exchange war on: January 15, 2021, 09:11:20 AM
A video appeared on WeChat showing an order to sell 21 million BTC on Binance, which provoked exchanges of Binance, Huobi and OKEx to exchange claims, writes CoinDesk.

"While many U.S. crypto exchanges are using the latest bull run to spruce themselves up in hopes of impressing institutional investors and regulators, China’s so-called “Big Three” centralized crypto exchanges (CEX) – Binance, Huobi and OKEx – are slinging mud at each other.

The latest flap is over a bogus video that purports to show a single sell order of 21 million bitcoin (BTC, -0.73%) on Binance on Jan. 4. The clip went viral last week on WeChat, a popular China-based social media platform."

Blockchain analysts at CipherTrace and CryptoQuant have denied placing such an order on the platform.
According to the Bitcoin emission schedule, 21 million BTC will be mined by 2140.

Co-founder and chief marketing officer of Binance Yi He saw the intrigues of competitors in the appearance of the fake video:
"I wasn’t going to answer because I thought no one would believe it.  Considering how our competitors have done by posting it in every group chat, I just wanted to express my appreciation to them."

6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Two attempts for $220 million on: January 13, 2021, 04:44:47 PM
How forgotten passwords prevent crypto millionaires from getting their money. An article by Nathaniel Popper appeared in The New York Times about a programmer who lost his password to an encrypted storage with 7,002 BTC Lost Passwords Lock Millionaires Out of Their Bitcoin Fortunes

Stephen Thomas, a San Francisco based programmer, has only two attempts left to guess the password worth about $220 million. This combination will allow him to unlock the IronKey drive, which stores the private keys from a digital wallet with 7,002 BTC. He received this amount back in 2011, when he lived in Switzerland. One of the owners of the crypt simply gave him thousands of bitcoins as a reward for creating an animated video about the currency.

Stefan has already made eight attempts, he has tried eight of the passwords most often used by him unsuccessfully and Stefan is not alone in this trouble. Many people around the world have lost access to their bitcoins due to lost or forgotten passwords. According to analysts at cryptocurrency company Chainalysis, of the existing 18.5 million BTC, about 20% lie in lost or otherwise blocked wallets.  In total, this is about $140 billion.

“Through the years I would say I have spent hundreds of hours trying to get back into these wallets,” said Brad Yasar, an entrepreneur in Los Angeles who has a few desktop computers that contain thousands of Bitcoin he created, or mined, during the early days of the technology. While those Bitcoin are now worth hundreds of millions of dollars, he lost his passwords many years ago and has put the hard drives containing them in vacuum-sealed bags, out of sight...."

7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / User got access to their 127 BTC after 9 years on: January 11, 2021, 08:33:43 AM
One of the Reddit users regained access to a wallet with 127 BTC that was lost several years ago. This is stated in the message in the r/Bitcoin subreddit.

I found the private keys to my 127 Bitcoins I lost 8-9 years ago. I’m at a loss for words. [UPDATE!]

First and foremost, wow; I did not expect my story to blow up as much as it did. I was shocked to wake up this morning to see that The DailyHodl published a feature covering what had happened. Over the past 24 hours, I’ve gotten dozens of DM’s of people asking me questions, requesting interviews, and most importantly—wanting clarification. If you don’t know what the heck I’m even talking about, feel free to look at my account’s recent post history.

The author of the post under the nickname BitcoinHolderThankU earned bitcoins in 2011-2012 by watching videos and completing tasks, but lost the private keys to the wallet. He restored access only in December 2020.
8  Bitcoin / Hardware / Canaan Creative introduced the Avalon A1066I miner on: January 10, 2021, 12:55:12 PM

9  Economy / Gambling / LONG COIN based on blockchain honest LOTTERY on: December 25, 2020, 08:53:57 PM
Disclaimer: I am not a developer and have no relationship to the organizers of the lottery. All actions to participate in the lottery are performed at your own risk

Jackpot for LONG COIN based on blockchain honest LOTTERY now is 0.1 BTC and will be paid in BTC to not greatly affect the price of the coin!

Test. Fair lottery on the LONG blockchain.

We propose to test the transparent lottery based on the LONG blockchain, in order to check the honesty of which you do not need to be a specialist. You just have to guess the last hash digits of any 10K block,  the current task is 370,000 block then 380,000 block and so on.

For example, the hash of block 320,000 was 00000000000003334ec385f285ec04ebfddfdcb611f6959c9d1bca467453a433  hash, the winning combination is 3 a 4 3 3 And if you matched all 5 out of 5 numbers in this order, you would win the jackpot. For example, a ticket with a prediction abc33 guessed 2 numbers out of 5. And ticket 1a43f guessed 3 numbers out of 5.

other prizes:
guessed 2 numbers out of 5 - win x2
3 numbers out of 5 guessed - win x1000
guessed 4 numbers out of 5 - win x10000
guessed 5 out of 5 numbers - Jackpot Win!
All details on the website

To participate in the lottery, simply send 100 LONG to 1BoJNSyhNPH79Av4e4GrhkzPV4ppPJFd55
up to 369,990 blocks and a message consisting of 5 numbers or letters a, b, c, d, e or f.
The last 5 digits of block 370,000 hash would be a winning combination. The winnings will be paid to the wallet from which the forecast came.

Or you can only send 100 coins to LOTTERY WALLET 1BoJNSyhNPH79Av4e4GrhkzPV4ppPJFd55 - and numbers of your ticket will be last 5 numbers of transaction ID!

11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Announcements (Altcoins) / [EXCHANGE]PATRIOT EXCHANGE USA safe & transparent exchange to facilitate crypto on: December 03, 2020, 09:54:42 AM



High-End FireWalls

IP Banning

Location Zone Banning

DDos Mitigation

HoneyPot Setup and Protection

High End to End Encryption

KYC ( Know Your Customer)

KYC credentials are required for all new members to join and use the Patriot Exchange. We do this to ensure we stay compliant with all laws and mandates but to ensure we have lawful users of our services.

Real Volume

What you see is what you get. We do not use trading bots or secret admin accounts to artificially increase order books. This prevents user to see an unrealistic chart view for any given asset.


ZERO Deposit Fees
ZERO Balance Minimums
3.5% Withdraw Fee***
3.5% Trading Fee***
***Subject to change based on exchange performance and community feedback from all our patriots.




The Patriot Exchange will promote the exciting asset class of cryptocurrencies to the American People, while also providing a safe & transparent exchange to facilitate crypto transactions. Through a variety of educational media we will also outline numerous opportunities that blockchain provides.

Most crypto exchanges are based overseas and some may lack the trustworthiness & customer service that we have come to expect in the United States. The Patriot Exchange will provide its users with a safe, fast & reliable exchange experience. Additionally, we will keep our organic growth & profits here in the U.S.



Token Supply

The Patriot Exchange Token (PATX) Max Supply will be 200,000,000 (200m). The max supply cap of 200m is locked and can not change to prevent artificial inflation. Half the supply will be given out to the community and the remaining half will be held by the owners & company wallet. The owners tokens will be locked for a period of THREE YEARS.

Purpose of PATX

PATX will serve as the native currency for the exchange and as a primary trading pair. As the exchange grows and expands, the tokens will serve as a financial asset to support various groups of veterans, first responders, emergency workers and conservatives.

Giving Back to Our Patriots

50% or 100,000,000 (100m) PATX will be equally distributed to the first 2000 registered users on the exchange. These 2000 slots will be marketed towards Active/Retired Military, Police Officers and Fire/EMS. However, I will not prevent longstanding active crypto enthusiasts from registering & collecting their FREE 50,000 PATX Tokens. This type of selected marketing ensures we support those Americans who come to our aid when we need them most. By April 15th 2021, if any of the 2,000 slots go unfilled the remaining tokens will be divided equally to every existing wallet holder who possess 50,000 PATX Tokens.

Built on the Etherum BlockChain

The PATX token is built and runs on the Etherum (ETH) blockchain. This allows us to have access to large groups of developers, IP options, community users, and a proven code base.

Building From the Ground Up

Like the Patriot Exchange, the PATX is 100% privately funded and not owned in any part by interest groups or other third parties. PATX represents a financial asset for patriots by patriots.

A HERO'S STORY(from the exchange's founder)

My personal journey as a Patriot began back on September 11, 2001. I was a sworn Police Officer attending a Hostage Rescue/High Risk Warrant class at the Blackwater Lodge &  Training Center. I recall coming out of the shoot house that Tuesday morning and being informed by our Navy Seal Instructor that an airplane had just flown into one of the twin towers in NYC. It was not long after when a second plane crashed into the other tower all but confirming that our country was under attack. Watching television in the bunkhouse later that evening, I caught my first glimpse of the terrorist attacks and learned of the staggering loss of innocent lives. Like many other Americans the images and stories that unfolded had a profound effect on me, how could they not. I would like to share a story with you. Ever wonder what courage looks like? Look no further.

This is a photo of Port Authority Police Officer Christopher Amoroso escorting victims from 9/11 out of the World Trade Center, shortly before he went back into the second World Trade Center. Lt. Colonel Dave Grossman (ret.) ends most of his talks with a picture of Chris and if you haven’t seen his presentation, then you need to. Here is what I heard the last time I saw Colonel Grossman: His name is Christopher Amoroso and at this point on that awful day the smoke and flames are so intense that they are coming down from those buildings in waves. They are coming down from both towers. They are coming down from all four sides. Strangers were holding hands on their way down, comforting one another. It takes a long time to die from 90 floors up. Every second is filled with despair. The sky behind is filled with falling bodies. The air above them is filled with smoke and flames and the awful sound of those bodies hitting the sidewalk are echoing in his ears.

Now do you understand why Chris looks like that? What makes Chris different from the other two is that he is going back. He’s going to drop off the pregnant lady and go back up that building a fourth time. The tower will fall and Christopher Amoroso will not come home to his wife and baby that night. Chris will never come home again. Do you understand that nobody told him to go? Why does one man go up the steps again and again and again and again while thousands are coming down? Because he’s a sheepdog! Inspired by the countless stories of bravery and personal sacrifice from our heroic First Responders, I passionately pursued improving my skills as a SWAT Operator & Firearms Instructor. As a staunch defender of our U.S. Constitution I appreciate the personal & financial freedoms which we are afforded.

After the financial collapse of 2008, I began to take an interest in equity markets and how they function. My initial journey to obtain a higher level of education in financial markets led me to achieving my securities license where I assisted families with insurance and financial investments. As an active trader of many asset classes I learned of the sudden rise of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies. In 2016 I retired as a Police Officer on the very day which I was eligible. I am currently blessed to be able to spend so much time with my family as well as pursue other interests.

As Cryptocurrencies rose exponentially in price, I had finally begun to understand the technology and its probable future significance and trend. When the opportunity presented itself to become Co-Owner of a Crypto Exchange, it was a natural and perfect fit. I had already determined its name, “Patriot Exchange”. In honor of all of the amazing Patriots that have fought to defend and keep our country safe, I am grateful.

12  Economy / Speculation / BTC $100K-288K before Dec2021 ? on: November 10, 2020, 05:48:57 PM
Popular blogger @PlanB confirmed that he remains true to his forecast of bitcoin price growth to $100,000–$288,000 by December 2021. He found additional evidence in favor of reducing the supply of coins, which is consistent with the Stock-to-Flow (S2F) model on which his expectations are based.

He gave the analogy of a star colliding with a black hole. PlanB noted that during periods of market corrections, it observes how bitcoin whale algorithms pick up hundreds of portions of 0.01 BTC from weak hands.

According to @PlanB estimates, the dynamics of bitcoin after the third halving in may 2020 confirms its correctness and develops like "by the clock". Six months later, the price approached the $16,000 mark, adding almost 80%.

@PlanB sees confirmation of their expectations in the acquisition of bitcoin by investor and billionaire Stanley Druckenmiller. Prior to this, such signals for him, in particular, were similar actions of the Stone Ridge Holdings Group management company, as well as Iran's approval of the mechanism for paying for imports with bitcoins extracted in the country.

The s2f model promoted by @PlanB is often criticized but it is still interesting to see how things will actually turn out. Smiley

The Binance cryptocurrency exchange has started blocking access to its main trading platform for US residents. The exchange announced the termination of service to users from the United States a year ago, according to The Block.

Until now, the exchange has allowed American users to access its platform. A US resident just had to click the "I'm not [American]" button to create an account on

Binance currently sends emails to US residents based on their IP addresses.

"We noticed that your account may be linked to an IP address from the United States. In accordance with regulatory requirements we are unable to provide services to citizens or residents of the USA […] If you are a us citizen or resident, withdraw your assets from your account within 90 days. We recommend that you consider using Binance U.S. or other platforms in the United States, " the letter says.

Binance took these steps after the US government launched two lawsuits against the BitMEX crypto derivatives exchange.

Binance.US, the us division of Binance, was launched in September 2019, but trading volumes on this platform remain insignificant compared to After the publication of the Forbes article, the head of Binance, Changpeng Zhao, said that his trading platform works within the framework of US law.

14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / 6 countries have more than 50% of BTC exchange traffic on: November 09, 2020, 06:31:00 PM
Users from the United States, South Korea, Japan, India, Mexico, and Indonesia generate about half of the bitcoin exchange traffic. The greatest interest in cryptocurrencies is shown by residents of Singapore, South Korea, Switzerland and Venezuela. This data is contained in a new study by The Block

The traffic of cryptocurrency exchanges allows us to guess in which countries cryptocurrencies are used most actively, analysts are sure. According to them, the pseudo-anonymous nature of the blockchain on which digital assets are based does not allow us to find out directly.

The researchers used data from the Alexa and SimilarWeb services in October for the 30 most popular cryptocurrency exchanges. This approach allows you to evaluate the activity of retail investors, while large players often use the API.
Analysts noted the absence from the list of China and a number of other countries whose authorities block access using the Golden shield or its analogues. Residents of such countries are forced to rely on VPNs.

18.4% of the total traffic of bitcoin exchanges is in the United States; 11.4% - in South Korea; 8.5% — in Japan; 4.7% — in India; 4.3% — in Indonesia and 3.2% — in Mexico. In October, these countries accounted for a total of 50.5% of the 111.5 million visits.

Binance had the largest number of visitors, almost 31.5 million (28.2%). Coinbase came in second with 22.9 million sessions (20.5%). All other exchanges in October showed less than 6 million visits.

15  Bitcoin / Press / [2020-11-06] CRA requested data on all clients Coinsquare on: November 07, 2020, 12:08:10 PM
According to The National Post, Canada's tax agency is asking the court to oblige the country's leading cryptocurrency exchange Coinsquare to transfer the data of all its users since 2013.

The CRA sent a corresponding appeal – the first in the history of Canada-in September. In it, the Agency States that this information is necessary in order to make sure that Coinsquare customers "comply with their obligations" under the country's tax laws.

In other words, the CRA wants to check whether all customers have paid taxes and whether cryptocurrencies have been used to hide assets. It is assumed that this will be done on the basis of tax returns for previous years.

Tax lawyer David Piccolo explained that if discrepancies are found in relation to the trader, a larger audit may be initiated. He noted the importance of the CRA's appeal to the court, since this is the first active action on the part of the Agency aimed at obtaining such a large amount of information about the clients of the cryptocurrency exchange.


16  Local / Майнеры / Утекли в сеть характеристики RTX 3080 Ti on: November 06, 2020, 01:46:07 PM
Множатся слухи о том, что Nvidia RTX 3080 будет иметь вариант Ti и он предположительно будет работать с 20 ГБ GDDR6X видеопамяти и станет ответом Nvidia на AMD Big Navi.

Эта новая утечка происходит от постоянно активного торговца слухами @Kopite7Kimi, который ранее подчеркивал существование предполагаемого RTX 3080 Ti в Twitter, а теперь предоставил некоторые дополнительные технические детали.

Как видно из его сообщения в twitter, Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition будет использовать графический процессор GA102-250-KD-A1, и предположительно он будет равен RTX 3090 с точки зрения наличия 10 496 ядер CUDA.
Возможно, что Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti будет иметь более низкие частоты ядро/память, для сохранения лидирующего положения флагмана Nvidia RTX 3090. И главный вопрос по какой цене предложит его Nvidia?

Facebook users reported blocking information related to bitcoin. When entering the hashtag #bitcoin, a message appeared that the content was "temporarily hidden" for security reasons. This is reported by users on reddit reddit and twitter


A thread on reddit says that Facebook has restricted the hashtag's output, allegedly due to violations of community policy. However, not everyone receives such notifications: a number of users without a link to the location did not notice problems with the issue. In July, cryptocurrency companies announced plans to file a class-action lawsuit against Google, Facebook and Twitter. The reason was the damage caused by the ban on advertising digital currencies on platforms.
