1  Bitcoin / Legal / Cease and desist notification(s) served to CSW / BSV re: the Bitcoin BTC logo. on: February 11, 2022, 02:30:27 PM

@BitcoinFX are you planning to start a lawsuit and legal action against Craig Faketoshi Wright, his partners in crime (some of them are active trolls in this forum) and other people who stole, plagiarized and edited Bitcoin logo that you created?
Changing a color or tilt does not make logo original, and it's a obvious case of stealing that reminds me on recent case of Croatian euro design scandal.
You can read more about that in this article:
https://www.euractiv.com/section/politics/short_news/design-of-euro-coins-in-croatia-creates-scandal/


Indeed. Let's just say that as of right now I'm "ready to fire on all cylinders", in this regard.

Whilst I really despise the (mostly unjust) legal system (where the only real winners are usually the lawyers), I have a solid case here in terms of my Threshold of Originality, as one originator of the current Bitcoin BTC logo design ...

On Feb 8, 2022 at 10:38 AM - following Craig Stephen Wright rejoining twitter, I "BitcoinFX" effectively served him with a cease and desist notification highlighting the ongoing infringement ...

"Final (digital) notification:

@Dr_CSWright

Your projects have copied my Bitcoin BTC logo design and breach my Threshold of Originality.

Cease and desist.

A highly recommended listen from me!

Dr Bitcoin - The Man Who Wasn't Satoshi Nakamoto
By CONTENT:ED Media


- https://anchor.fm/dr-bitcoin

"Dr Craig Wright is a genius and the creator of Bitcoin…or he is a narcissistic cult leader and pathological liar. Cryptocurrency writer Mark Hunter and renowned Craig Wright sceptic Arthur van Pelt explore the incredible story of Dr Wright and his attempts to sue his way to being legally recognised as Bitcoin’s creator Satoshi Nakamoto, and the riches that would come with it. Join them as they evaluate the tangled web of claims, denials, lies, and cover ups that have led to Wright fighting a court case that could lose him half of his $70 billion Bitcoin empire which may not even exist."

Episode 1 - A Taxing Situation - November 1, 2021
- https://anchor.fm/dr-bitcoin/episodes/A-Taxing-Situation-e19ect7
"Mark and Arthur look at Craig Wright's youth, his early years, and his battles with the tax office that led to his claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto."

Episode 2 - Who Let The Doxx Out? - November 5, 2021
- https://anchor.fm/dr-bitcoin/episodes/Who-Let-The-Doxx-Out-e19jnmt
"Mark and Arthur look at December 2015 when Craig Wright fled Australia after his name appeared in the world's press as the creator of Bitcoin, and his home and offices were raided by federal agents."

Episode 3 - London Calling - November 12, 2021
- https://anchor.fm/dr-bitcoin/episodes/London-Calling-e1a4482
"In this episode, Mark and Arthur discuss the lead up to the 2016 London signing sessions, where Craig Wright would offer cryptographic proof of his claim to be Satoshi Nakamoto. Or so he said..."

Episode 4 - Prometheus Burns - November 19, 2021
- https://anchor.fm/dr-bitcoin/episodes/Prometheus-Burns-e1a7ifd
"Mark and Arthur assess how Craig Wright was pushed to the brink of sanity by the 2016 signing sessions and how he handled the fallout."

by MyLegacyKit (twitter).

Excerpt: "Intro

In Bitcoin, signing a message is a cryptographical way to prove control and ownership of a public bitcoin address (using the associated private key) via a feature in the Bitcoin wallet. The procedure of signing takes less than a minute to perform, and the output -a so called digital signature, a lengthy string of letters and numbers- can be used by others to verify said ownership and control."

CSW has provided zero valid cryptographically assured proof, to date, whatsoever that he had anything to do with the creation of original Bitcoin (BTC).

He has presented a plethora of invalid, fully debunked, refuted claims, outright lies, forgeries and untruths ...

Agreed. Where possible, boycott everything BSV related ASAP.

- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boycott

Excerpt: "A boycott is an act of nonviolent, voluntary and intentional abstention from using, buying, or dealing with a person, organization, or country as an expression of protest, usually for moral, social, political, or environmental reasons. The purpose of a boycott is to inflict some economic loss on the target, or to indicate a moral outrage, to try to compel the target to alter an objectionable behavior."

De-list BSV now!

IMHO this de-listing should include the bitcointalk moderators locking all of the BSV threads in the altcoin section of this forum.

Bitcoin maximalists are doing more harm to the crypto space than good ?

Discuss ...

"maximalist
noun
a person who favors a radical and immediate approach to the achievement of a set of goals or the completion of a program.
"

- https://www.dictionary.com/browse/maximalist

...

Bitcoin is not a "game" that can be completed. It is a protocol and eco-system of digital cash and a store-of-value (i.e. digital gold).

Bitcoin (BTC) is the first digital commodity money of the internet.

- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodity_money

Bitcoin's monetary (intrinsic) value is primarily derived from electricity, cryptography (math) and time. Markets (and arguably $ price) are secondary.

The very first Bitcoin exchange rates were established as such (before this, Bitcoin remained entirely valueless) ...

- http://newlibertystandard.wikifoundry.com/page/Exchange+Rate

"The exchange rate is the average of the adjusted bitcoin production per day divided by the average production costs per day. The per day averages start with the previous day and will eventually extend back 365 days, but until then, they increase by half a day each day by taking the average of two averages. Production costs consist of the price of broadband Internet and metered electricity. The adjusted bitcoin production is the following spreadsheet calculation =if(M2>N2,((B2+F2)/2)*(1/(3-((N2/M2)*2))),((B2+F2)/2)*(3-((M2/N2)*2))) where M2 is the available balance of dollars times the exchange rate of that same day, N2 is the available balance of bitcoins, B2 is the amount of bitcoins produced the previous day and F2 is the average of the adjusted bitcoin production per day."

- http://newlibertystandard.wikifoundry.com/page/2009+Exchange+Rate

"During 2009 my exchange rate was calculated by dividing $1.00 by the average amount of electricity required to run a computer with high CPU for a year, 1331.5 kWh, multiplied by the the average residential cost of electricity in the United States for the previous year, $0.1136, divided by 12 months divided by the number of bitcoins generated by my computer over the past 30 days."

...

Bitcoin Maximalism

Bitcoin maximalists, who's favorite hangout would currently appear to be the self described crypto twitter, mostly seem to affirm that nothing can ever be an improvement to Bitcoin.

This is IMHO a malignment not only to Bitcoin itself, but also to the entire cryptocurrecy space in general.

Primarily it stifles innovation, creates a false single viewpoint narrative and to be frank some of these folks are starting to sound like a broken record for "Number go up", idiocracy. Free markets are free, numbers go up and down.

Plenty of ideas, testing (and code) from other altcoins and blockchains have contributed changes incorporated into the existing Bitcoin (BTC) project, and vice versa of course.

Some altcoins and other cryptocurrencies do have some unique advantages over Bitcoin currently, namely;

- Better privacy / anonymity features.
- Faster transaction / confirmation times.
- Useful PoW schemes
- Smart contracts etc.,

Whilst Bitcoin (BTC) will always remain the first true cryptocurrency / market mover ...

Remember: Bitcoin is an Open Source project, so do try to keep an Open Mind to other projects and innovations within this space.

"Bitcoin Season 5
S5 E10: Arthur van Pelt on Craig Wright
July 14, 2020 by Vlad Costea

For at least two years, Arthur van Pelt has been paying close attention to the activity of Craig Wright. Ever since the self-proclaimed “Bit Coin” creator has started suing community members who contested his status, van Pelt has taken upon himself to shine a light on the numerous cases of shady evidence that Wright provided.

Some would go as far as saying that Arthur van Pelt is obsessed with Craig Wright and has a personal agenda. After all, his daily tweets about Wright’s life and activity in court do require hours of research and intensive reading. But if you ask van Pelt, he will say that he only does a community service by trying to salvage the reputations of those whom Wright has harmed: from Hal Finney to Adam Back and Hodlonaut, there are dozens of lives that have been irreversibly affected by lawsuits, threats, and perpetual slandering.

To support his cause, Arthur van Pelt has created the “#Faketoshi Fraud Timeline“: a website where he regularly publishes information that he collects from court data, testimonies, and individual investigations. His aim appears to be that of fact-checking statements that Craig Wright has made in court, private e-mails, blog posts, and social media interactions.

In the Bitcoin Takeover Season 5 finale, we talk about Craig Wright’s early days (convincing Gavin Andresen that he is Satoshi, debating Nick Szabo during Bitcoin Belle’s panel, and feeling reluctant to play the role of Satoshi), his evolution throughout the years, and the considerations that may exist behind his lawsuits.

Inevitably, some conspiracy theories get discussed: Is Craig Wright a government contractor who is trying to discredit Bitcoin and destroy it from within? Or is Craig Wright actually paid by the real Satoshi Nakamoto to put an end to the relevance of who the creator of Bitcoin may be?

At the end of our 155-minute discussion, Arthur van Pelt and I agree that the Bitcoin community should always be honest and phase out bad actors with facts and thorough research. While it’s better for bad actors to receive less media coverage, it’s also useful to balance their claims with facts. This anti-sensationalist middle ground may look less glamorous than scoring clickbaity website hits, but it’s also better in the long run."

See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satoshi_Nakamoto and http://p2pfoundation.ning.com/profile/SatoshiNakamoto

"On Satoshi’s P2P Foundation profile, Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous creator of Bitcoin, has a listed birthday of April 5, 1975.

As Gwern explains, April 5 has no outward significance to Satoshi or Bitcoin:

    There is, as far as I can tell, nothing special about 5 April; it’s not a round number, it’s not a symbolic date, it’s not your usual fake birthday like 1 January or April Fools, it’s not the day Satoshi signed up for P2P [Foundation] … , it’s not related to when Bitcoin was released (January) or when the domain was registered (August) etc etc. So it seems like a good guess at a birthday.

But the individual or individuals behind the Satoshi Nakamoto identity went to great lengths to remain unidentified, why leak identifying information here?

Upon further investigation, it seems highly probable that Satoshi chose this date symbolically. April 5 happens to be a very important date in the development of money.
The Outlawing of Gold

On April 5, 1933, U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 6102 “forbidding the Hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates within the continental United States”. The order declared the act of saving gold a crime in the United States, punishable under a $10,000 fine — almost $200,000 in price-adjusted 2014 dollars — and imprisonable for 5 to 10 years.

Roosevelt’s alleged reasoning for this order is somewhat hard to locate in an intelligible form, but this transcript implies the decree was issued for technocratic reasons– to prop up the US Dollar and reduce demand for gold, which was being withdrawn from federal reserves at an unsustainable rate.

Knowledge of this historical episode can be rather confusing to many people today, as it is difficult to fit into the typical American history narrative. Perhaps this is one of the reasons Executive Order 6102 remains widely unknown amongst the general public.
Criticisms of Executive Order 6102

In the past few decades, mainstream narratives largely brushed over this event. The typical narrative once branded most intellectuals who criticized Roosevelt’s decree as libertarian, but one need not self-identify as libertarian to find Executive Order 6102 extremely concerning.

Progressives familiar with the intellectual theory behind their movement might be uncomfortable with the legal precedent set in creating an imprisonable crime without a democratic process.

Conservatives familiar with the intellectual theory behind their movement may be concerned by the usurpation of a political power not delegated to the Federal government in the US Constitution. Not even the Congress is granted the power to punish for the hoarding of gold; their power for punishment concerning currencies is for fraud (counterfeiting):

    To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current coin of the United States;

Those who adhere to the non-aggression principle (Libertarians) will find this executive order to initiate violence against non-violent parties, without a proper claim to aggressed-property.

And moderates, independents, or otherwise will almost certainly find it disturbingly Orwellian that the leader of an allegedly democratic government can declare a previously legal (and incredibly common) act to be imprisonable for 5 to 10 years, for allegedly technocratic reasons, without any public economic proof or study.
Influence on Bitcoin

Executive Order 6102 was a landmark event in the history of money. It influenced generations of thinkers to consider forms of money not under the control (or potential control) of political entities. Among these thinkers were the Cypherpunks, including Wei Dai (b-money), the very first reference in Satoshi’s original whitepaper.
Why April 5, 1975?

April 5 is clearly an influential date in the development of Bitcoin. Satoshi’s text included in the Bitcoin blockchain’s genesis block even seems to resonate with a fitting message:

    The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks

Interestingly, Satoshi’s reported birth year, 1975, also seems to have relevant significance. As Edlund10 points out, 1975 is the year Executive Order 6102 was reversed and gold ownership was re-legalized for average US residents.
TL;DR

Satoshi Nakamoto’s self-reported birthday is April 5, 1975. This date happens to correspond to the date of a major turning point in the development of Bitcoin. Executive Order 6102 — a decree making the holding of gold an imprisonable offense in the US — was issued on April 5, 1933. In a seemingly corroborating nod, 1975 is the year in which this act was reversed.

It seems extremely unlikely that Satoshi chose April 5, 1975 by coincidence.

Bitcoin SV – Blocking potential P2SH replay attack after Genesis hard fork
https://bitcoinsv.io/2019/12/23/bitcoin-sv-blocking-potential-p2sh-replay-attack-after-genesis-hard-fork

The Bitcoin SV Node team notes the recent public disclosure on Reddit by Gregory Maxwell (a.k.a. /u/nullc) from the Bitcoin Core (BTC) of a potential replay attack vector on Bitcoin SV after the “Genesis” hard fork in February 2020 which will be deprecating the P2SH (pay-to-script-hash) feature that is not part of the Bitcoin design described by Satoshi Nakamoto.

The post describes a possible theft via replay attack of P2SH (pay-to-script-hash) transactions from the BTC chain that could be executed to steal unsplit funds of BTC users on the Bitcoin SV chain. The Bitcoin SV mission is to return Bitcoin to the vision described in Satoshi’s whitepaper which uses the word “honest” no less than 15 times and we emphatically reject the notion that obvious theft of coins by miners can fall within the definition of “honest” behaviour.

 We note that Mr. Maxwell’s public disclosure in no way fits the broadly accepted definition of “responsible disclosure” and by describing in detail the steps required to exploit and potentially cause loss of funds to BTC users, we would deem it both irresponsible to BTC users and poor security practice.  Had the disclosure been made responsibly according the guidelines set out in the Bitcoin SV Responsible Disclosure Policy, it likely would have been eligible for a substantial bug bounty.  It is particularly puzzling to the BSV Node team that the disclosure was made in this public way by a BTC core developer given the users most likely put at greater risk by the disclosure are not those actively engaged with BSV, but primarily those that are BTC users who may not even be interested in BSV.

We note for the record that the Bitcoin SV Node team has previously made responsible disclosures to the Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin Cash development teams and intend to continuing to do so as part of our commitment to professionalizing Bitcoin software development.

The Bitcoin SV team had been previously aware of variations of this attack vector and did in fact have a plan in place to mitigate it, in part involving a coalition of honest miners forcibly rejecting blocks that contain obvious theft attempts in order to protect the integrity of the chain. We note that this mechanism has subtle but important differences to an explicit consensus rule although has a similar effect. However, due to this public disclosure and explicit description of the method, we believe there is now a significantly higher risk of a dishonest miner attempting to execute this theft attack with a large amount of hashpower and consequently the economic cost to honest miners of implementing the proposed mitigation method is likely to be substantially higher as well. As such the Bitcoin SV team has determined that a stronger mitigation is now required.

We note for the record that Mr. Maxwell’s post did bring to our attention some aspects of this issue that the Bitcoin SV team had not yet fully considered.  So we thank him for the technical review and shedding some new light on the matter.  

In fact, this event demonstrates that the public review process implemented by the Bitcoin SV team, in advance of finalizing the code in early January, is achieving the intended goal of improving security outcomes for the ecosystem.

Mitigation
In response, the Bitcoin SV Node team will update the “Genesis” hard fork specification by upgrading the rule rejecting the P2SH script pattern from a policy rule to a consensus rule.  That is the specific script template “OP_HASH160 <hash> OP_EQUAL” will not be allowed in new outputs and this rule will be directly implemented in the Bitcoin SV Node software.  Whilst unfortunate to restrict the usage of a particular script pattern, we note that the same effect can be achieved using variations of the script pattern e.g. “OP_SHA256 OP_RIPEMD160 <hash> OP_EQUAL”.

This change closes the attack vector and mitigates the need for honest miners to forcibly reject blocks containing theft transactions.  Whilst this could have triggered a valuable demonstration of the principle of honest miners acting punitively against dishonest miners, the public disclosure by Mr. Maxwell raises the potential cost to those miners to an unacceptable level.

Segwit script pattern
To address an additional but unrelated issue related to native Segwit transaction replay an additional measure will be taken. This will be detailed in a later post.

An update to the Genesis hard fork specification will be published shortly and the code changes included in the next beta release of Bitcoin SV.  Release notification will occur through the usual channels noted here: https://bitcoinsv.io/genesis-hard-fork/

Bug Bounty
We take this opportunity to remind the security research community of the substantial bug bounty program offered by Bitcoin SV with a maximum reward of up to $100,000 USD (payable in BSV), rivalling the largest bug bounty programs in the world offered by multinational technology giants.

We offer a top-tier bug bounty program in order to encourage further scrutiny, review and responsible disclosures from all parties.  Gregory Maxwell is of course eligible to participate so long as he adheres to principles of Responsible Disclosure in the future.
