8  Economy / Digital goods / Ello invitations available on: October 28, 2014, 08:30:27 PM
An invite to join the new invite only social network.

As always, I will consider reasonable offers.

they offer an ad-free alternative that promises never to sell your information to third parties. In fact, it appears that this promise is the foundation on which the platform is built: “Collecting and selling your personal data, reading your posts to your friends, and mapping your social connections for profit is both creepy and unethical. Under the guise of offering a “free” service, users pay a high price in intrusive advertising and lack of privacy.”

The network is also free to use, and supposedly will always be free for users. But with no advertising, how they do make money? The company plans to eventually generate revenue by offering special features to its users: “We occasionally offer special features to our users. If we create a special feature that you really like, you may choose to support Ello by paying a very small amount of money to add that feature to your Ello account.”

Make your bids, get yourself an invite.

13  Economy / Economics / Will bitcoin survive the impending financial crash? on: October 11, 2014, 10:23:02 PM
Sometime in the next few years the economy will crash (again).

The same mistakes made during the housing crisis are being made again - this time with so called 'bail out money'.

Is bitcoin likely to survive such a crash?

Will it fall in value and then rebound or will it go the way of the dinosaur?

Or will another cryptocurrency emerge from the ashes, a stronger, more viable (and stable) itiration?

Are there any tactics that can be utilized to recover stolen/lost bitcoins?

16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / CryptoThrift escrow service compromised on: October 07, 2014, 01:00:01 AM
In the early ours of Sunday 5th October, CryptoThrift was subject to a well-planned and clinically executed security breach.  Our hot wallet was compromised and our attackers managed to steal a little over 15 BTC of funds that were held in escrow.  The nature of the attack was such that it was not immediately clear that anything had happened, which is why it has taken us until today to take action. 

Fortunately the majority of users funds being held in escrow were safe in offline storage, so the impact of this attack was lessened.  Please be assured that any users that have payments or refunds due will be contacted over the next few days and your money will be paid.  The owners of CryptoThrift are absorbing the cost of this.

Whilst we have not yet completed our investigation, we have identified the attack vector as a vulnerability in a third party plugin.  This was used to inject SQL queries into our database and manipulate the amounts on transactions being released from escrow.  What we have not made public until now is that we have seen sustained and almost-daily attack attempts on the site for many months.  We have been in contact with the Australian Federal Police regarding this, and will be sharing with them all data that we have on this attack as well as all previous attempts.

This attack has prompted us to reflect on our security measures, and we have concluded that we need to make some significant changes to our escrow process, our storage of customers funds, and have a third-party conduct a full security audit.  Until this is complete, we feel we have no choice but temporarily suspend our escrow service for our users, as we simply cannot risk holding users funds.  Effective immediately, buyers will no longer be able to choose to use escrow when purchasing items.  All existing transactions that are in escrow will be honored until they are released or refunded.

CryptoThrift is owned and operated by two guys, both with families and full-time jobs, who run this site in their evenings and weekends to try and create something new for the crypto community.  We have made every effort to provide good customer service and have put 100% of all profits back into development, advertising, and marketing.  A such, the cost of this theft is being covered by us personally.  If our attackers wish to do the right thing and return our funds to us, they can do so by sending it back to 19bBwiFrAaCLxZZoS4grTDoFFVszxzvPMo.  If any of our users wish to help, we would gratefully receive donations of support to the same address. 

We must sincerely apologize to our loyal users for this breach and our decision to temporarily remove our escrow service.  It is heartbreaking for us to see our hard work destroyed by cold-hearted, thoughtless, hackers.

Thanks for all your support, and we hope that you continue to use our site. If you have any comments, please feel free to share them on our blog post

17  Bitcoin / Legal / Russian Bitcoin Bill - In the event of its passing... on: October 06, 2014, 11:01:06 AM
The two-page draft bill details a series of administrative fines to be imposed on both businesses and private citizens who issue, create or deliberately disseminate information about the release or operation of digital currencies, the language implying that the law would apply to much of the bitcoin industry, from bitcoin users to miners and service providers.

How likely are Russian bitcoiners to adhere to the law?

How enforceable would such a law be?

What tactics are the Russian authorities likely to deploy in order to safeguard their fiat currency and criminalize non-compliant citizens?

Will they (Russian citizens/those resident in Russia) find viable loopholes/avoidance tactics? Do such tricks currently exist?



Which governments do you believe would be most likely to follow in the footsteps of the Duma?

What would this do to the price of bitcoin? Will one cryptocurrency suffer more than most? Which cryptocurrencies are likely to benefit/appreciate?

19  Other / Beginners & Help / If the bitcoin ledger is available to all.. on: September 15, 2014, 11:45:02 AM
...then how did the Mtgox money vanish into (seemingly) thin air?

Is the ledger incomplete? Is it possible to keep transactions 'off the book' so to speak?

Please help this n00b to understand what happened.
20  Other / Beginners & Help / Escrow services on: September 08, 2014, 10:29:47 PM
So, I was planning on making a purchase via an escrow service (probably BTCrow).

Is there anything that I need be particularly wary of?

Are there any other escrow services that people here can recommend?

Thanks in advance.
