Apple has released iOS 14.8, an urgent iPhone update that all users should install now. That’s because it comes with a warning—iOS 14.8 is an important security only upgrade for two vulnerabilities that Apple believes adversaries are already using to attack people’s iPhones.

3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Uruguayan Lawmaker Proposes Bill to Treat Crypto as Legal Tender on: August 04, 2021, 09:47:14 PM
The project, presented by ruling party senator Juan Sartori, includes a regulatory framework for crypto exchanges and miners.

A senator from Uruguay has introduced a bill to make cryptocurrencies legal tender in the South American country.

The bill, which was presented on Tuesday by Sen. Juan Sartori, seeks to provide “legal, financial and fiscal security in the business derived from the production and commercialization” of cryptocurrencies.

“Crypto assets will be recognized and accepted by law and applicable in any legal business. They will be considered valid means of payment,” the project states.

Sartori’s bill would establish that cryptocurrencies “are products of free sale by those entities and individuals who wish to commercialize them,” and states that any natural or legal person “may receive and/or send funds in legal tender from and to their own bank accounts or those of licensed companies.”

If the bill becomes law, the government would issue a “first license” that would enable companies to trade crypto assets on exchanges. A second license would allow “storing, holding or safekeeping crypto assets,” while a third would be used to issue crypto assets or utility tokens with “financial characteristics.”

According to the bill, Uruguay’s executive branch would grant the licenses to entities that are in compliance with anti-money laundering secretariat (Senaclaft) and the Central Bank of Uruguay. For other transactions, the “use of all these instruments will be free and will not require prior consent, permits or licenses.”

Sartori’s bill also stipulates the regulation of crypto mining. Miners wouldn’t need a special license like a doctor, but would need permits from Uruguay’s Ministry of Industry, Energy and Mining in order to operate.

The measure also includes the “promotion of technical training for electrical, civil and computer engineers in the generation of virtual assets.”

According to the bill, Senaclaft “will keep a registry of virtual asset service providers” and of those individuals or legal entities that wish to carry out activities of generation and commercialization of virtual assets.

Sartori belongs to the ruling National Party. He ran for the National Party’s nomination for president in 2019.

In the Senate, the National Party and its allies, which form a coalition named Coalición Multicolor, hold the majority, with 17 of the 30 seats.

To date only one country has adopted bitcoin as legal tender: El Salvador, which approved a bill earlier this year.

Manny Pacquiao has signed a deal to fight Errol Spence Jr. for the unified welterweight championship on Aug. 21 in Las Vegas, a source told The Athletic's Mike Coppinger on Friday.

https://theathletic.com/news/manny-pacquiao-signs-deal-to-face-errol-spence-jr-on-aug-21-in-vegas-source/fFVR8P2VBcTE

I think I’m gonna bet on Pacquiao to win, he’s looking good value. I know he’s older now but you don’t lose your boxing brain, he’s still so fast too, one of the greatest ever.

      

      
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Donate to Cøbra (pending court battle against Craig Wright) on: April 24, 2021, 07:42:46 PM
I’m sure you’ve all read about Craig Wright (Faketoshi) attempting to prove ownership of bitcoin.org & claims he wrote the bitcoin whitepaper & is Satoshi.

This week London’s High Court have permitted Wright to chase down Cøbra over ‘copyright infringement’.

You can read the full story here -

www.theguardian.com/technology/2021/apr/23/australian-man-craig-wrights-claim-he-invented-bitcoin-to-be-considered-by-uk-court

Any way, my reason for starting this thread is just to see if anybody wanted to donate to Cøbra’s publicly displayed bitcoin address ahead of court litigation. You can see his bitcoin address on his official Twitter -


@CobraBitcoin
My BTC address is 1Cobra3fJstD9g3DJ2oaUpDps5gJsZa4eS and my PGP key fingerprint is 61559B1EEFB3F8DA6C40BAAC6F85594478CE4C7A.

https://twitter.com/cobrabitcoin/status/948598658848710656?s=21

(Please follow the link to verify his receiving address for yourself).


I just wanted to give people the chance to donate to Cøbra. We’re all here for a true love of bitcoin. Good honest trustworthy people who have dedicated their lives to bitcoin deserve our support.

6  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Taproot Speedy Trial Code - - Merged Into Bitcoin Core on: April 15, 2021, 02:59:10 PM
Taproot Speedy Trial Code Merged Into Bitcoin Core
The merge puts an end to a long road of activation discussions – now all that's left is Taproot's actual activation.


Article Credit - Colin Harper - Apr 15, 2021 at 2:50 p.m. UTC
https://www.coindesk.com/taproot-speedy-trial-code-merged-into-bitcoin-core


The code for Taproot’s “Speedy Trial,” an activation method for Bitcoin’s biggest upgrade in years, has been merged into Bitcoin Core.

On April 15, Bitcoin Core developers Fanquake and Marco Falke merged two complementary pull requests authored by AJ Townes and Andrew Chow for Speedy Trial. With Speedy Trial now merged into Bitcoin Core’s source code, Taproot’s code is ready to start its first step toward activation when the code is released in May.

Bitcoin’s community, from developers to avid users, all agree that Taproot, which implements the Schnorr signature scheme into Bitcoin code, will be a boon for the network by making complex transactions (what the cool kids call “smart contracts”) more scalable and private.

Read more: How Bitcoin’s Taproot Upgrade Will Improve Technology Across Bitcoin’s Software Stack
No one has agreed on how to bring Taproot online, though. Because Bitcoin is decentralized, it requires painstaking coordination between actors to make sure an upgrade is released properly. After months and months of activation discussions led to a stalemate, Bitcoin developer David Harding and Russell O’Connor devised Speedy Trial as a way to put an end to the impasse.

How Speedy Trial works

The compromise allots a three-month activation window, during which time the network requires a certain threshold of miners to signal for the upgrade; if this threshold is reached, then Taproot is “locked in” and activates three months after the threshold is crossed.

Should this trial fail, then Taproot doesn’t activate (and the network will have only wasted three months trying, hence “speedy”).

The compromise brokered an agreement between those who wanted an activation via Bitcoin Improvement Proposal (BIP) 9, which means the upgrade fails if miners don’t adopt, and BIP8, which gives node operators (those running Bitcoin’s source code who act as “servers” for the network) an option to force the upgrade with a user activated soft fork if it fails.

Miners have shown no signs of blocking the upgrade, making the drawn-out discussions a source of frustration for some stakeholders.
7  Economy / Reputation / AdkinsBet - My personal experience on: January 24, 2021, 04:13:51 PM
The AdkinsBet scam accusations have been bothering me for a while.  It began to remind me of scam accusations against other trustworthy casinos that turned out to be fake.

I automatically believed the accusers which is probably a little silly. Any way, I set up an account with AdkinsBet this weekend & made some bets to test them out.  They offered good odds so I figured why not.

I was quite lucky on an accumulator & won 0.01BTC from my stake.
I made my first withdrawal request which was processed successfully with no issues.

It makes me think that the scam accusations against them are possibly match fixers & or multi-accounters.

Any way, hopefully all the scam accusations get settled and they are able to be another trustworthy sportsbook that myself and others can use.
8  Economy / Reputation / Bossian Reputation Thread on: December 04, 2020, 12:04:59 PM
Some time ago I made a bet with Bossian. He said we would not see a new ATH by 1st Jan 2022 & I said that we would.

Full bet details are here - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5296125.0

He has today paid me in full (0.05BTC).

I have left him positive trust, can I please request that others remove their neg trusts because he has paid me.

9  Economy / Gambling / Where can I make this US Election bet? on: November 23, 2020, 10:34:10 PM
I really want to make this US Elections prop bet, but I can’t see any Bitcoin sportsbooks who are offering it.

Adkinsbet is offering odds but they only just registered on the forum last week so I’d really prefer not to use them. I believe they were recently under a DDOS attack so best not to start betting with them.

Merit available for anybody who can suggest a reputable BTC sportsbook who are offering the above bet.

Thanks in advance.

10  Economy / Gambling / Sportsbooks that aren’t paying out on Biden winning the US Presidential Election on: November 10, 2020, 08:49:08 PM
I placed a bet with sportsbet.io on Biden to win the election. They have paid me out my winnings.

A few people I know made the same bet with Nitrogen Sports & another guy with betBTC & they’re all worried that I’ve been paid out but Nitrogen & betBTC are stalling.

Is anybody else experiencing the above issue? Clearly Biden is the new POTUS yet Nitrogen & betBTC are stalling.

Every single news outlet is reporting that Biden is the winner and I’ve seen his speech.  
My guess is that any sportsbook refusing to pay out on Biden is desperately hoping for some nonsense court case which has a close to zero chance of happening.

If anyone wants to contribute about being paid/not being paid, I encouarage you to post in this thread. It’d be really good to make the community aware of any difficulties anybody is having with certain sportsbooks.

It’s good to know in advance of the next elections which bookies pay up fast and which don’t.

Thanks guys.

I’m just genuinely curious to see the sentiment amongst bitcointalk posters. Please no trolling which includes being overly bearish or bullish. Just vote for what you genuinely think, no agendas.

Personally, I’m thinking option 4 ($12,001 - $14,000).

It’ll be interesting to see the results.
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Craig Wright To Face Trial on: September 21, 2020, 08:36:03 PM

Craig Wright Must Face Trial Over Alleged $11B Bitcoin Fortune as Request for Summary Judgment Denied


The District Court for the Southern District of Florida has denied Craig Wright’s request for summary judgment in a case that involves claims over ownership of about 1.1 million bitcoin (worth over $11 billion).

In an order signed on Monday, Judge Beth Bloom at the Florida court denied Wright’s motion seeking summary judgment that would have prevented the matter from proceeding to a full trial.

The case, first brought in 2018,  involves the plaintiff Ira Kleiman’s argument on behalf of the estate of his late brother David, that half of Wright’s bitcoin worth and intellectual property belongs to Kleiman. The plaintiff has argued that the bitcoin in question was also mined together by Wright and Kleiman.
Wright’s request for summary judgment was comprised of six claims including statute of limitations, the plaintiff’s inability to prove the existence of an oral partnership and the court’s lack of subject matter jurisdiction.
In the past, Wright has claimed that he was the inventor of bitcoin under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto, an assertion many in the crypto world have disputed due to a lack of corroborating evidence.
According to an order issued by the Florida court on Sept. 4, the trial involving Wright’s bitcoin fortune has now been moved to Jan. 4, 2021.

This is what I am understanding.

Yesterday evening after the poker game, I was doing my usual work. At some point, I was going to check my sportsbet T-shirt update. I was looking for the email sportsbet sent so that I get the link to fill up the form. I saw three emails. One already read. The two new with the update of they are running out of the t-shirts. So I opened one of the email, checked the link and it was taking too long time to load the page. When it was annoyingly late, I closed the tab but my system seemed unexpectedly slow. It happens sometimes and I usually force close the system and restart. I did the same and then started my usual work. When I wanted to  login in few of my accounts it always asked me for passwords. Nothing flagged me though. I did not had any 2nd thought. When it was late I gone to bed. Today morning when I wanted to login to bitcointalk discovered everything. Before everything else I knew I had to reset my device which I did.

Now I do not have access of the email. All the accounts, exchanges, business, social media, gambling sites everything that had the email are fucked up. I am contacting each of the sites to help me changing the email addresses. I am going through a lot now. In some accounts I have money locked. This will not be a very easy ride for me. Everything fucked!!!

I do not deserve it. Thanks whoever you are.

I believe the hacker discovered his email address simply by clicking on his profile & discovering the email there & the rest is history.

This is what I discovered on page 1 (There are currently, as I type this 8 threads on pate 1 with Corona Virus in the subject title) -



Do we really need to keep allowing mindless threads about COVID-19?

It gets even worse when you read all the shitposts inside the thread.
