1  Economy / Economics / FTX adds Paypal deposits on: March 02, 2021, 12:12:05 PM
According to their CEO tweet :

https://twitter.com/SBF_Alameda/status/1366614366435483651

1) you can now get *instant* fiat deposits on FTX

2) you can now deposit *any currency*, more or less.  Paypal converts for you.

3) Paypal charges are fees!  If you're doing a large transfer, wires are slower but cheaper.

4) credit card deposits work through it!

It's feasible today through their platform :



What do you guys think?
2  Economy / Reputation / Scammed using Binance P2P, be careful, also looking for aussie to help on: February 28, 2021, 07:35:02 PM
I got scammed using Binance P2P.

The seller's username was chalupa, they had over 500+ trades with a very high "completion" ratio, and a full ID-ed profile. I used Paypal, I know I should have asked for an ID and a selfie to verify the person had the correct details, but I considered the high profile rating something worthy of trust, it wasn't.

Here's the binance profile of this seller :



I think these scammers are running fake account networks, and wash trading between each other to pump up the numbers in the ratings, while in reality they don't really mean much. I made sure to report the profile to support, but I'm making this post to warn other users on here to not trust anyone on Binance P2P, this "selective scamming" problem is extremely hard to pinpoint, because the seller could scam select users and still continue operations that increase their profile ratings for every single scam they pull off. Please only trade in small amounts until you build your own list of trusted people.

Also, I'm trying to recover my funds and if there's any Australian willing to help me out it'd be appreciated, there is someone I need to contact there related to this situation. (I'll leave a tip!) Cheers!

7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Thoughts about / risks of WBTC? on: January 22, 2021, 12:07:59 PM
What do you guys think about WBTC? I understand it's a proprietary smart contract under a multisig by multiple entities.

https://wbtc.network/

There are "merchants" that can request access to mint and burn requests, and for each of these requests they need a tx that backs the mint with real bitcoins.

Bunch of examples in the page here :

https://wbtc.network/dashboard/order-book

I want to start using WBTC more because the ethereum network allows for things like liquidity pools, yield farming, lending/borrowing trustlessly with margin etc.. But what are the potential attack vectors here?

You have txes like these :

https://etherscan.io/tx/0xe6f95c38659c5ec6a6886771de2fed8fe4d4876eb8e8fc6a180ad63bf93f400b



So the mint request has an amount, btc address, and txid to trigger the mint. This seems to happen manually, since after the tx above, a few hours later this tx approving the mint is exercised :

https://etherscan.io/tx/0x45efef8f065a365dc1259ea2ff3efc158cde397ae8d45a90115646665555c29f

The question remains in the trustworthiness of these custodians. Taken from their press release :

Quote
T​he WBTC DAO members initially consist of AirSwap, BitGo, Blockfolio, Compound,DDEX / Hydro, Dharma, Gnosis, GOPAX, Kyber Network, Loopring Protocol,MakerDAO, OmiseGO, Prycto, Ren, Set Protocol, and TheOcean. Any critical changesto the WBTC structure must be approved by the DAO.

I understand that more projects makes this more secure as multisig becomes harder to compromise but many of these projects are not worth a lot in market cap and thus makes many of them weak links in this group.

Also, can anyone explain why the number of circulating tokens on etherscan is different from the tokens displayed in the "audit" link?

https://etherscan.io/token/0x2260fac5e5542a773aa44fbcfedf7c193bc2c599

https://wbtc.network/dashboard/audit

On a different note, since all of this is done manually I'm guessing WBTC is somewhat immune to smart contract flaws or bugs, as the contract itself is fairly simple and since all mint txes are done by the same individuals there is lesser chance of that sort of issues happening. But like I said above this also makes it prone to different kinds of issues like social engineering or conflict of interest.

What do you guys think about all this? Do you guys use WBTC? Do you have any other ideas or potential black swans for it?
8  Economy / Lending / Best USD (or any stablecoin) borrow rates against bitcoin on: January 15, 2021, 08:58:09 AM
Hi it's been a while since I posted, I thought this might be the best place to ask
I'm thinking of some reasonable leverage trading but the options have gotten worse over the years
Binance seem to have recently upped their USD lending rates by 20% making it a 36 to 44% yearly rate..
I have looked into smart contract solutions like Dai or Aave, which offer reasonable rates, but I'm still worried about risks such as

https://www.reddit.com/r/MakerDAO/comments/fi832z/im_part_of_makerdaos_bug_victims_and_loose_250eth/
https://www.comp.xyz/t/dai-liquidation-event/642

Basically I dont trust WBTC and dont want to be prone to some stupid risk based on oracles and contravts that have prebiously failed several times
What are my best options? Do you guys know other exchanges that offer reasonable rates?

11  Economy / Auctions / Light Dice dot Com - Perfect domain for a futuristic lightning network dice game on: May 12, 2020, 12:43:12 PM
I should first mention that this isn't an open auction yet, this post is just to measure interest and find potential buyers, but I am likely send this to an auction in the future.

LightDice .com : Killer domain gambling through lightning channel transactions.

With the halving upon us, and the lightning network daemon 0.11 version likely to release this summer, building a gambling solution using it is nothing short of a go-big-or-go-home move. So while lnd is has proved it's here to stay, gambling on the halving to trigger another bullrun wouldn't be a bad idea, it will inevitably speed up its development with implicit funding; and subsequently speed up its adoption.

Light also means, well, light ya know. Branding and whatnot.

As for the dice keyword it has always been timeless :

shavedice.com   7,015 USD
freeonlinedice.com   3,416 USD
bitcoindice.com   3,250 USD
islandice.com   3,100 USD
luckydice.com   3,000 USD
paradice.com   2,400 USD

I should mention these are only fiat sales on markets like sedo, it is not wrong to consider btc prices for currently leading dice sites at least tenfold if not more of these numbers.

My "BIN" price is 8BTC, where I'll transfer the domain for you immediately. But I'm welcome to all offers you consider reasonable, you can either PM me or leave a comment.

16  Economy / Gambling discussion / CS:GO IEM Katowice Predictions? on: February 07, 2019, 01:15:38 PM
Major Counter-Strike event happening in the course of the next 2 months, I don't know how many people here are interested in e-sports, but for me it's always been a much more satisfying watch than plain old football. There's just so much more potential for unexpected events to happen that every round keeps me on the edge, I never miss a major.

So! The initial seeds for challengers stage are out, and the round 1 games are scheduled for next week. Which team do you think is going to pull off the 3-0 & the remaining 7 teams to make it out of elims? I want to pick NiP for the 3-0 win but they're too inconsistent even if their first game looks easy. Ence is a popular pick but it's just a meme at this point. Would love to hear thoughts from other e-sport fans on the forums.
17  Economy / Service Discussion / Miningrigrentals price competitive? on: January 24, 2019, 06:58:24 PM
I've been experimenting a little with miningrigrentals, but I'm not sure where their prices stand from the community's point of view. Is the price per TH of sha256 good? Am I better off getting it from somewhere else?

Also related, I'd also be interesting in renting an small amount of hashrate (anything between 3 - 10 TH/s). So if anyone would be willing to lend me some TH for a few weeks send me a PM!
18  Bitcoin / Project Development / Crowd bitcoin mixing? on: January 22, 2019, 09:48:39 PM
I made a thread a while ago about investing in gambling site bankrolls : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5068178.0

Someone bumped it just recently, and because of my new signature two cables just connected in my head and a light bulb lit up.

Has anyone tried a service to mix bitcoins using crowd funds?

Just like you would invest into a gambling website, you'd invest into the bitcoin mixer balance.
The mixer gets profit off of fees from people intending to hide their coins, and part of that fee goes to the balance of all the investors.
This not only will create a complete fuckfest of txes from multiple people & addresses, which will help make mixing the coins a lot more efficient, but at the same time split up the coins to be mixed across a whole lot of users rather than just spending them to another client wanting to mix his coins.
