2  Other / Meta / What exactly needs to be entered in "website field" of the profile page? on: January 15, 2020, 01:35:33 PM
There is a option in the profile page, named website and I was wondering is it right to place any link in this field. I am asking this because in few profiles the website is displayed as telegram or twitter but when clicked it redirect to some referral link. Is this legit to do so?
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / ETH blockchain based decentralised exchange on: October 07, 2019, 10:16:01 AM
I was reading a article published by cointelegraph and read that:
Quote
McAfee DEX is set to run in a beta release status as of Oct. 7

McAfee DEX beta: the details
According to the details released so far, McAfee DEX reportedly will entail no Know Your Customer checks, block no jurisdictions and charge a single platform fee of 0.25% for takers. It will not charge maker fees and will also reportedly be open sourced.


Here is the article: https://cointelegraph.com/news/john-mcafees-decentralized-crypto-exchange-launches-in-beta

This means if someone hacks my funds and trades through this exchange whom to I ask?

I have not used much distributed exchanges but this statement was scary. Previous I had the experience where my funds were hacked and this statement opened up my wounds.
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / How to check the UTXO? on: July 25, 2019, 07:36:06 AM
Was trying to understand UTXO and landed up on the below link:
https://statoshi.info/dashboard/db/unspent-transaction-output-set

In the first graph it shows the total TX with unspent outputs. If this graph is low that means the spent transaction are more than the unspent. Is that what it means? Or I have read it wrong.

Also, the third chart Size of Serialized UTXO set is related to the bytes in a transaction. This bytes are used to calculate the fee. Is it so? Please help me understand
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / How to Identify whether some one has sent FAKE ERC20 token or not? on: June 21, 2019, 08:10:13 AM
Few days ago I was debating with my friend on a transaction. Then while debating on this we found some changes that can differentiate the correct tokens from the incorrect ones.

Sample transaction: https://etherscan.io/tx/0x6f3ca5d21b27dd5f03dad947cdabfedfed75fe9303578660676f626903faa23c  

The above transaction is not containing the correct ITC tokens. Below are the few differences that can help you identify this:

First:

The value in $ will be mentioned in the Token transfer detail incase you have received the correct token. (Portion is marked in below image)

Note: This along can not be considered as bench mark and conclude that the token sent is wrong. There are two more ways to checking. Please read the complete post.
This option is just for alert not the confirmation step that is what I meant. If the $ missing in any of the transaction it is better you check before providing the service or product form your end.




Second

The Contract address of tokens are available at coinmarket cap(I found it at CMC there may other source as well). This contract address should match with the contract address mentioned in the transaction hash that is given to you by the sender. If the it does not then the token sent are wrong.

Address at CMC for ITC:


Address in the hash I have shared at the top of this post(wrong tokens):


Third:

This is last one but not the least one. The number of transactions on the contract address.

The number of transaction on CMC contract address:


The number of transactions on the hash I shared which hash incorrect tokens:


Please let me know if you have few more ways to identify or if there are any improvement that can be done in the identification.
6  Other / Beginners & Help / Feature request on: June 11, 2019, 11:09:14 AM
I just started with coding and was searching for answers/solutions online and found a site https://stackoverflow.com most of you might know this site. When I signed up to this site they showed all the rules and other tips to use there site. One thing they mentioned was the restriction for the new users. It was mentioned that the new  users cannot comment until they have some credibility as he/she will be treated as a learner in that time period.

Bitcointalk is also a amazing platform like Stakeoverflow but the domain in which these two platform work or far apart but, this feature of enforcing newbie to learn is missing.

I know that there are restriction on signature but, newbie sometimes keep spamming must by replying on ever thread. Some spammers will be banned and some will not be. This feature can filter out many spammers and allow only those who are here to learn, explore.

This was my though process when I read stackoverflow rules.

7  Bitcoin / Hardware wallets / No need to look for Exchanges anymore. on: April 07, 2019, 11:38:58 AM
Using Trezor you can seamlessly exchange between different cryptocurrencies without ever needing to leave the Wallet site. The entire exchange process can be initiated and observed directly in the Wallet interface.


The exchange feature is provided by various third parties; SatoshiLabs bears no responsibility for the process, exchange rates, fees, or functionality.

Your personal information will not be processed by Trezor Wallet / SatoshiLabs, nor will it ever be requested by the company. Customer support for exchanges will be serviced by the partners.

8  Economy / Exchanges / CoinBene: Exchange Lost At Least $105 Million on: March 29, 2019, 11:02:06 AM
Was reading news and came across this upsetting news. There are funsa transfered as per the researches.

SUSPICIOUS FACTORS

Galka presents two good reasons to believe that these are not authorized transfers. For one, the funds are being moved largely via “sweeping.” This is where you simply import the private key into a new wallet, enabling you to avoid a transaction fee. Galka writes:

The pattern of transfers between multiple intermediary wallets is not commonly seen among exchanges. It is, however, a common tactic for people who want to cover their tracks — moving the crypto through a series of “sweeping addresses” to make the trail more difficult to follow.

The other factor that raises suspicion is that the funds have quickly been sent to other exchanges, where they were sold. The tokens, for example, were offloaded via EtherDelta, a decentralized exchange whose creator recently agreed to pay a huge fine.

After leaving CoinBene, the tokens were quickly moved into Etherdelta, where they were sold for ETH. A large amount of funds were also moved into centralized Exchanges, including Binance, Huobi and Bittrex. The funds continue to move into exchanges as I write this.

IF YOU WEREN’T HACKED, WHAT’S WITH ALL THESE MOVING FUNDS?

Quick liquidation of proceeds is a major indicator that all is not well. People who withdraw from exchanges don’t immediately take them and sell them at market rate on other exchanges, at least not in these amounts. We’re talking about over 100,000 Ether.

CoinBene has yet to publicly address Elementus’ findings, even with a day of delay. They also haven’t tweeted since yesterday. Perhaps they themselves are only now discovering that something is wrong. Maybe they believed that a period of “maintenance” would help them locate lost funds.

The irony that $70 million of the funds were liquidated via EtherDelta is strong. EtherDelta is a non-custodial exchange, after all, where this type of attack is not even possible. Customers own their funds when trading there, similar to TRX.market or Newdex.io in the Tron and EOS world. The exchange is not intended for fiat conversions, but rather a method of trading Ethereum-based assets.

QuantStamp (QSP) offers monthly Airdrop of several new coins to long term investors. It sounds wonderful for investors to get ample profit by investing in QuantStamp.
