2  Bitcoin / Project Development / Anyone still make crypto tickers? on: April 01, 2020, 02:33:30 PM
Mods feel free to move this, figured project development would be the best place for it.

So there have been a few low(ish) priced crypto tickers over the last few years.
You had
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5113453.0
and
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1377771.0

Both of which are no longer around / shipping.

VoltageGoat still is out there but they are a bit different then the standard tickers:

https://www.voltagegoat.com/product-category/tickers/

There are also a few RPi DIY based ones out there like this one:
https://github.com/taoteh1221/DFD_Crypto_Ticker

But is anyone still just making and selling basic price tickers?

3  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / What to do with old miners after the having. on: March 06, 2020, 12:20:40 PM
With the halving approaching there will probably be a lot of older gear being turned off especially with summer approaching in the northern hemisphere.

What is everyone planning to do with your older gear?
I know we have a lot of us making "space heaters" for the winter but that still leaves a lot of gear that is going to be way past EOL.
Yeah, I am keeping my R4, and probably 1 S7-LN, but the rest and the parts for them I am probably going to send to e-waste.
I have enough spare boards that the 1 board T9+ and the 1 board S9 will also probably stick around.
The rest, not so much.

Anything else anyone is doing that I am missing?

Oh and a side note, please DO NOT just throw them out if you are done with the them, recycle them properly.

5  Bitcoin / Electrum / Fraud site electrum-bitcoin.org is now mine. on: March 02, 2020, 12:57:27 PM
Tweaking the DNS to blind forward to https://electrum.org/ should be done in a little while. Couple of hours at most.

Do you think I should just leave it like that or put up a 1 page site that says if you downloaded the software from here you do not have the legitimate electrum client?

Part of me says just forward it, if they have that client it's already to late and if you do put up a page that says that you are going to get hit with about a billion help requests.
The other side says, that it's a bit of warning for a few people who might wind up on that page.

The other option is to hand it off to the developers and let them deal with it, but that has it's own set of issues.

7  Bitcoin / Electrum / Electrum Server Question want to make it "private" on: February 29, 2020, 01:25:00 PM
So I setup a server for my own use and all was good.
I opened the ports so I could use my phone wallet and laptop wallet in the real world.

Outside of a few people I told about it nobody should have been using it.
Other then nonstandard ports / just not telling others is there a way to make it private?

No VPN or anything else to make it complicated have to connect is there a way to make it non accessible to the world.

I'm assuming the answer is no, but figured I would ask anyway.

Thanks,
Dave

So, I posted this reply last night and figured what the heck lets see if it gets any traction:

Thinking about it; someone should probably start a thread where everyone here can post their LN info for other people here to open channels to.
Kind of keeping it in the family.

11  Other / Meta / Do you post more when you are wearing a signature or? on: January 12, 2020, 03:45:46 PM
Do you know you are going to be spending more time on the forum so you look for a signature?

Full disclosure I am wearing a sig when I post this, I had not had one for a while since the last campaign I was on ended.

I knew I was going to be spending a lot of time at clients over the next few weeks and that I would have a lot of time while was there to post stuff since I am waiting for stuff to happen before I can do the next "job" onsite.

So, I went looking and found a signature campaign. It's kind of like, I am going to be here and posting might as well get paid for it. On the same note when I knew I was going to be posting less and not certain I would be able to post in the gambling sections I left campaign I was in.

I know there are the spam / junk posters on some campaigns that are just bulk but I was wondering how most of the people here in meta felt about it, since it tends to be overall a better group of posters here. (yeah, that's not good English you know what I mean)

The optics of what I see is that when people are wearing sigs they post more. What I can't see is what is the cause and what is the effect.
Just wondering on how it works for all of you.

Note: If paid sigs went away it would not change my posting habits, but as I said, I'm here might as well make a buck.

12  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Is there a way NOT to connect to specific peers? on: January 09, 2020, 11:56:13 PM
I am doing some lightning builds and I am trying to have some nodes (bitcoin not lightning) NOT talk to each other.
Mostly I do not want the lower power RPis to connect to the other nodes on the network during sync.

I have tried addnode with remove and disconnect node, but they keep coming back.
They are all on the same private network so I don't know if that is causing the issue.

It's not really critical, but I figure I am just missing something simple.

Thanks,
Dave
13  Bitcoin / Wallet software / Some thoughts about wallets. Random thoughts from Dave. on: December 15, 2019, 07:49:39 PM
So there is a post here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5209504.0

About is your Android wallet secure. Now I have some issues with the article, and how it is written, and some other things, but that is me. It basically discusses if the github version matches the compiled download for Android devices. Is it open source, is it custodial, etc.

But that brings up another point which is, is that important? And what is?

Going back to here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5205304.0 where I was talking about how to help new people pick their wallet, this also brings up the point of what is secure and good for you might not matter what it good and secure for me. I used to like Mycelium more but I have really started to drift away from it. For my own personal use I have moved to 2 separate mobile wallets. Both of which would make most people scream ARE YOU NUTS?? one is closed source (with some unverified complaints) and the other is custodial. But for me they do work,for others they might not.

So this point here is:

Since most of us can't really read the 1000s and 1000s of lines of code, and even if we could we may or may not compile it to verify what is on github matches what we just downloaded, which may or may not matter if they admit github might be a version or 2 behind what is being downloaded but the phone auto-updates the app anyway. Which then does not matter since we probably don't know the security procedures in place for them to upload the update to the playstore anyway.

Aren't we just making ourselves feel good? Think about it. Coinomi is closed source. If they put in code to send all the coins in all their installed wallets to them, we can't do anything about it. And we will not know till all our funds are gone.

BUT

Blockstream Green Wallet is open source, and you can verify the build same way as listed it in the article. But still auto updates from the play store. Do we really know if the username and password for account that they use to upload to the store is secure along with the 2fa? Or is the user / pass on a post-it note on the monitor with the 2fa usb device left sitting plugged into the USB port on the computer that does the uploads? If someone goes evil Friday at 3:45PM as everyone is walking out of the office. By the time everyone figures it out Monday AM it's all over.

Same with custodial vs non custodial? Yeah Coinbase has it's issue, but you know what else it has? Insurance & a phone number to call. I KNOW Not your keys / not your coins. But if you trade just about any financial instrument (stocks / bonds / currency) 99% of the time you don't have the actual bonds / stock certificates / cash anyway. Other then logging into my trading account I really can't prove I own "X" shares of "Y" stock. If I want the actual certificate I have to PAY a lot to have created it mailed to me. So long it's at a place like Coinbase and not Dave's unknown exchange does it matter that much? Yeah, they can spring KYC on you at any moment. But you know what, so can any payment gateway. I'm not saying leave real amounts of BTC there.
With that being said...
But, in a hot phone wallet does it matter? If you have more then spending amounts in your phone isn't this all kind of moot? Because...wait for it....phones & PCs are not that secure by themselves at the end of the day....

I can go on, but I just wanted to put this all down again

-Dave
14  Other / Meta / Do we need a separate sub board for Lightning wallets / nodes? on: December 13, 2019, 03:20:44 AM
Do you think there could be another subboard discussing lightning wallets and/or nodes?

Yeah, I know there are scattered discussion about them but unless I am missing something there is no 'put all that discussion here' place.

A lot of the discussions and support are taking place on Telegram & Discord but having it here would be nice too.

I also know a lot of them overlap other wallets but I think there are enough separate questions to keep it separate.


Thanks,
Dave

15  Other / Meta / Should you be able to lock your account for a time. on: December 09, 2019, 12:53:50 PM
Just saw this feature on another forum. Don't know if it can be done here or not, but it looked interesting.
You can set a lock on your account for "X" days and it cannot post / change password / or do most other features.

It's kind of like setting an away message on your office email.

This way if you know you are going to be offline and not logging in for a while it prevents some account compromises and such.
It also lets other users know that you are not ignoring them. That is probably less important here but possibly good to have.

Just thought I would put it out there for discussion.

General Info:

Price Per Ticket BTC0.001.
Ticket Limit: None, take them all if you'd like.
Shipping: Free to the US. For out of the US you will owe me another $15.00. Why $15? Because I am shipping it with real tracking. The last thing I shipped to someone out of the US 2 weeks ago and has still not made it there. I tried to get an answer out of USPS the other day and I could not. Gave me a headache, so it all goes 1st class parcel with tracking now. If you have someone US based that can re-ship it to you for less have me ship it to them. The Christmas season is starting, shipping is not going to get any better for a month. Sorry about that.

17  Bitcoin / Wallet software / Helping (usually new) People Choose Their Wallet(s) on: November 28, 2019, 02:07:12 PM
So yesterday HCP replied to something I had posted with this:

So, as I said above I know what *I* am getting myself into and the risks of each. We should be helping others learn that too.
This is probably one of the best attitudes I have seen on this forum in a long time... To often, in too many parts of this forum, people dig their heels in and start arguing about fairly irrelevant stuff. I've even probably been guilty of this on some occasions!

It's a bit like ProgrammingLanguageA vs. ProgrammingLanguageB... there isn't a "one size fits all" approach to this stuff. For some people... blockchain.com or Exodus or Coinomi or Coinbase or Binance wallets make the best fit...

For others, nothing short of a paper wallet crafted using dice and a 486 laptop running a Linux live OS in a Faraday cage will suffice... and then everything else in between.

The first step, is to identify what your needs/goals and use cases are and then find the solution that best matches those, while making sure that you understand the risks of your chosen solution and how to mitigate them. Even hardware wallets and paper wallets can be "useless" if you do something dumb like putting your seed words or private keys in an email draft folder protected by SIM based 2FA Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

I think people should spend more time "playing" on TestNet... get a feel for how things work, experiment and learn... play with paper wallets... try manually creating transactions and learn how it all works. Personally, I think it's fun and you're not going to lose anything of value except a little bit of your time. Wink

And I do think we need a separate thread here to discuss it. So here it is the separate thread.
As a rule he is correct in that we as a group do tend to dig in when we feel our position is threatened and our favorite wallet is under attack or a wallet that we think is evil is being recommended without ever getting a full picture of what the person who is asking really needs or has the ability to do.

Hardware wallets are great, and you know what I use them. Now I'm going to pick on my accountant. He is older, his eyesight is going, and has arthritis. Hardware wallets are just about useless for him. The screens are too small, he cant easily get the microUSB plug into them and outside of one or 2 of them he cant put in the pin. But, if he asks we are going to tell him use a hardware wallet. When he says he can't we as a group dig in and explain to him why he must. However, he will never admit on a public forum that he just can't do it. We all know people like that, for whatever reason they will never show weakness [Even if it's to a bunch of people who they will never meet, on an anonymous forum]

You know what, for him we should probably put our heads together and come up with solutions, possibly multiple ones to solve his problem. Yeah, it's going to be a pain but staring a reply with "You really really really should use a hardware wallet, but if you can't then....."  is better then "Fine, if you don't want to be secure then install electrum but it's not as secure." Because people see the "not as secure" and start to wonder. Because we could have said "You will loose some security having funds not secured by a hardware wallet, but electrum will do this thing called multisig let me show you how it works. This was even if your PC gets hacked so long as your laptop is still secure then your funds are safe. And, you can have some small funds on a 2nd electrum wallet on your PC that if it get's hacked no big deal."

I know I have not, up until recently I was in the "what are you being such an ass about, just use a hardware wallet"

I saw it again with people slamming the bitpay wallet and BIP70. Like it / don't like it does not matter. If we didn't stop to find out that all this person is doing is paying merchants that are only generating BIP70 invoices then getting into the argument of BIP70 evil, BitPay evil, really does not help people. Pointing out that BIP70 is going away from core and might not be supported long term is fine, but telling people not to use it or directing someone who might not be that tech savvy to one of the invoice decoders is just wasting time and generating frustration. Giving them the pros and cons of the bitpay wallet vs electrum vs Mycelium is what we should be doing.

Thus ends my rant for today.

20  Bitcoin / Mining support / Antminer Fan Replacement Question on: November 22, 2019, 01:47:19 AM
A while ago somebody posted a list of replacement fans for S9 units with links to Amazon / Newegg and a few other places.
It listed which ones were quieter / more powerful / etc.

I went back through posts here till 2017 and could not find it. Does anyone still have the list or a link to it.

Thanks,
