1  Economy / Exchanges / Crypto Exchange AAX Suspends Withdrawals on: November 14, 2022, 02:07:07 PM
https://trends.aax.com/important-update-forward-through-adversity

"In light of the insolvency of one of our industry’s largest players last week, crypto users are rightfully concerned about the operational and financial stability of centralized digital asset exchanges. "

So they decided to suspend withdrawals putting more panic in the market.... This is getting real bad
2  Local / Português (Portuguese) / Saiba quem é o “Sheik dos Shitcoins” que entrou na mira da PF e dos EUA on: October 06, 2022, 03:52:28 PM
https://www.metropoles.com/distrito-federal/na-mira/sabia-quem-e-o-sheik-dos-bitcoins-que-entrou-na-mira-da-pf-e-dos-eua

Francisley Valdevino é dono de uma empresa que promovia o “aluguel” de criptomoedas. Além disso, foi sócio do pastor Silas Malafaia. Juntos, os dois montaram a AlvoX, companhia que oferece serviços tecnológicos para cristãos interessados em abrir o próprio negócio. Ao jornal O Globo o pastor afirmou que desfez o acordo assim que soube dos boatos de golpe envolvendo a outra empresa do “Sheik”, a Rental Coins.



O sujeito negociava tudo, menos Bitcoins. Negociava shitcoins, negociava alt coins, negociava moeda propria, ouro, dollar, real, cavalo, relógio. Menos Bitcoins. E ainda assim as manchetes colocam como sheik dos Bitcoins.
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Hindenburg Research Announces $1,000,000 Bounty For Details On Tether’s Backing on: October 20, 2021, 12:16:26 AM
https://hindenburgresearch.com/tether/

Hindenburg has doubts about the legitimacy of Tether’s backing due to the company’s sparse disclosures.

Tether has been referred to as a “stablecoin” in the crypto space due to the company’s historical claims that it was equivalent to $1 USD and was backed 1-to-1 by “traditional currency” reserves.

Since those claims that garnered it “stablecoin” status were made years ago, Tether subsequently revealed that its coin was backed only by a small percentage of traditional currency, and that much of its backing consists of holdings in commercial paper issued by unnamed counterparties.



I believe that today nobody imagines that Tether is really 1:1 USD. But I believe that this attempt is not just for someone who wants to drop the price, but rather to better understand the environment before entering. Exchanges that use Tether should have a Legal liability.

Wesley Pessano tinha 124 mil seguidores no Instagram, onde dava dicas sobre o mercado financeiro e enriquecimento

Wesley tinha mais de 124 mil seguidores no Instagram, onde se apresentava como "trader" do mercado financeiro e dava dicas sobre investimentos. A primeira postagem com esse viés é do início do ano passado. Na descrição do perfil, ele prometia "liberdade financeira aos 18".

A quantidade de "traders" que utilizam um startpack para as redes sociais é impressionante. Carro milionário, fotos vendo um grafico, fotos de Dubai. Infelizmente me parece que ele apenas trabalhava com uma pirâmide financeira. Sem ter a menor ideia do que é o Bitcoin

Virou gente grande pra competir com os bancos digitais. Se transformou numa das maiores fintechs com esse aporte.
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / $1B of Bitcoin from Silk Road wallet moves for first time since 2015 on: November 05, 2020, 04:55:16 AM
https://www.investing.com/news/cryptocurrency-news/1b-of-bitcoin-from-silk-road-wallet-moves-for-first-time-since-2015-2341019

An anonymous crypto user has just moved 69,370 Bitcoin from an address associated with the Silk Road darknet market that more recently has become a popular hacking target.



Apparently he only accessed the wallet to update to the new address format. Interesting how it served for so long as a beautiful safe inaccessible by the government.

I thought it was really stupid. Unfortunately he continues to use his money for this type of marketing. The name blockchain is very strong and probably used a lot. Too bad he bought it to redirect to TRON. Blockchain.com is one of the most well-known sites.
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin had a stale block this morning on: September 30, 2020, 12:30:41 AM
https://twitter.com/BitMEXResearch/status/1310886330239455233
Bitcoin had a stale block this morning, at height 650,491. No double spends have been detected

https://forkmonitor.info/stale/btc/650491
There was also an earlier stale block today:

* Height 650,473
* Hash 0000000000000000000dba80455fcb5a8f9716375845f295dd755edb29e32fd8

Our systems failed to detect this

Once again there were no double spends


What Are Stale Blocks?
Stale Blocks are blocks that are no longer part of the current best blockchain because they were overridden by a longer chain.

It's just amazing how it proves Bitcoin's resilience. In a possible blackout in the communication between poles of the planet, we could still easily identify the longest chain and continue without major consequences.

 pool who mined this earlier stale block



Eu não tinha  a menor ideia sobre o que era isso. São blocos antigos que foram criados, mas não fazem parte da Blockchain mais antiga. Isso ocorre pelo delay da internet. Dois miners descobrem um bloco simultaneamente. Eles estão em polos opostos tipo um na CHina e outro no Canada.

Os nodes próximos confirmam a descoberta de cada um dos polos. Então na teoria, existem duas blockchains. Um próximo bloco é descoberto no Japão seguindo aquele descoberto na CHina. Então toda a rede esquece o bloco descoberto no canada e passa a seguir a cadeia mais longa apenas.

Aquele bloco do Canada se torna um slate Block. Achei sensacional isso. É importante observar que o risco de qualquer problema quando isso ocorre ainda é mínimo. Na teoria poderia ser uma oportunidade para uma transação duplicada.
