1  Other / Politics & Society / Another terrorist kills people in London on: November 30, 2019, 02:49:02 PM
Another proud member of the public goes on a rampage and everybody is reluctant to call things as they are. It's not a muslim extremist, a migrant, who stabbed 2 people to death, it's an ISIS-inspired terrorist (according to the liberals). Each of us could be an inspired terrorist, but somehow only muslim migrant scum do these things. Why are they trying to hide it?


So far, the British police has declared Friday's attack on London Bridge "a terrorist incident." The suspect, who wore a fake suicide vest, stabbed several victims on London Bridge before he was killed by police. Authorities have not ascribed a specific motivation to the suspect. But the incident bears a close resemblance to an attack in 2017. ISIS-inspired terrorists wearing fake suicide vests plowed a van into pedestrians on London Bridge before launching a knife attack at the neighboring Borough Market, killing eight people before they were shot dead by police.

Damn, really?! His motivation was to kill infidels and go to heaven for it.

The British media don't want to share who the terrorist was and prefer to base the articles on what the PM and Mayor said about it. Other media are more bold:

LONDON—A convicted terrorist released from prison last year killed two people in a stabbing attack in the heart of London before being shot dead by police Friday, prompting authorities to lock down a busy area on the edge of the financial district and bringing back memories of a 2017 rampage nearby.
Authorities identified the suspect as 28-year-old Usman Khan. He had been convicted in 2012 for terrorism offenses and served time in prison for the part he played in the plot to bomb the London Stock Exchange in 2010.

I came across this short documentary today. It has been published just yesterday, and I like that it shows crypto from a very positive perspective. The mainstream media love to describe it as a problem (a way for people to get scammed, lose money), but it's in fact an answer to a problem. It's important for people to notice and understand it.

3  Economy / Economics / The mentality of an average wannabe investor on: December 10, 2018, 12:41:56 AM
I was reading some of the mainstream press the other day, just typical news and politics, and among the articles was one about the fall of cryptocurrencies and "enormous losses that Bitcoin investors have to endure". What got me reading were the sarcastic comments below. Idiots wanted to buy fake money and got burn. Ponzi scheme. Bubble burst. They bought something that doesn't exist. It's going to 0 because it's worthless! There were a few saying that it's the best time to invest if you thought about it during the bull market and thought the price was too high, but those posters were downvoted and ridiculed.
 
The average investor is always on the loss, because he's always angry and negative.
When it's going up, he doesn't buy and says: why would I buy something that went up by 500% last month? It's clearly a bubble!
When it's going down, he also doesn't buy: why would I buy something that is worth 30% of what it was? It's clearly dying!

Go to some mainstream forums and talk to people outside the tech space once in a while and you'll see why they aren't making money and why they will never make money.
This is also the reason why bull market cycles are so similar and why they will keep repeating. The vast majority of people never learn, even when they see the same thing happening again and again. You'll see it when we have another bull market and Bitcoin reaches a new high. Let's say that it will be 50k USD, followed by a year long bear market that will take us down to 6000 USD. The society will continue to call it a ponzi scheme that is going to 0 this time for sure and they still won't buy at the bottom. They'll say that those who bought in the previous bottom were lucky and this opportunity will never come again. Don't be a grumpy investor!

I'm sure that less than 10% of the people around you knew about Bitcoin in 2017 and had the opportunity to buy. Less than 0.5% actually bought. Out of those, most sold at a loss and didn't make any money, or lost the coins at scams, casinos, hacked exchanges, ICOs.
If your coins have more value now then at the time of buying, you can be proud. You're among the elite!
 
4  Economy / Economics / Interesting USDt chart on: November 16, 2018, 12:19:14 PM
I've recently noticed this little thing. Might shed some light on the recent price action.




To explain, blue line is USDt/USD chart, orange line is BTC/USD. Note that BTC was slowly rising, but at some point on 13th November our so called "stablecoin" started to lose value to USD to the point where it dragged all cryptocurrencies down. I've seen people say that it's normal for USDt to lose value during a crypto crash, because it's after all another coin, and people are going through it to sell other cryptos, but this shows that it did not go down because people were selling, it went down when the price of Bitcoin was in fact rising. A whole day before the recent 15% crash.

Now, let me put my tinfoil hat on. On the same day, the 13th, we get this: https://cryptonews.com/news/bitfinex-users-struggle-with-fiat-withdrawal-2905.htm
Is Bitfinex messing up the price for us, or is it all just a coincidence?

Bonjour à tous,

Hypothèse : je vends pour 1000 euros de bitcoins, je rapatrie l'argent par virement SEPA sur mon compte bancaire.

Question : je déclare ces 1000 euros dans la case 5KU ? ou bien uniquement la case 5KY ? ou bien je met 1000 dans la case 5KU et 1000 aussi dans la case 5KY ?

Gap in posting November 2016 - October 2017
No French post under new management, most likely hacked.

minersday
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=229588
Post gap from August 2015 to March 2017

GreatOrchid https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=364362
Post gap November 2016 - March 2017
Most likely hacked along with minersday


Now for the good part.

All above accounts stopped posting on the same day. July 21, 2018
All above accounts joined the same campaign on the same day November 11, 2018
All above accounts did the same mistake when joining. They copied the personal text along with the word "personal text"
All above accounts were inactive since their campaign application.



There are some other posters that also did the mistake in text, and are most likely owned by the same person.

6  Other / Meta / Off topic bullshit posters on: March 18, 2018, 10:06:28 PM
We had copy paste plagiarism, we had short spam posts, today I came across this interesting subject.
What this guy is doing is writing posts that are in decent English and of decent length, so it might look like a legit post, but it's completely off topic like this guy was taking a 3 sentence thought and breaking it into 1 sentence per random thread. Example:

Thread: Who controls the Bitcoin system?
Online Bitcoin wallet has its advantages over the offline version. You can access it by using not only the PC, but also a tablet or phone. Specificity is similar to conventional Kiwi-wallets, WebMoney or Internet banking.

Thread: What are the advantages of having Bitcoin?
If you now try to get a block using a video card Radeon, this can take about 5-7 years. Therefore, the equipment every year is getting better and better. And in 2040 the last block with the code will be extracted.

All his posts are similar. He may be copying the sentences from somewhere. Is this a bot posting?
7  Other / Meta / Smart spammers on: January 28, 2018, 06:57:25 PM
I'd like to make you aware of an interesting case that i've noticed. A guy is leveling up by spamming, although he's doing it in a "smart" way. He's throwing one of the existing posts into some kind of rephrasing software (probably made to combat anti-plagiarism software that looks for similarities in writing). Words in the given post get substituted with synonyms so that it looks completely different but the meaning remains the same.

Examples:

The original:
The relation between the Bitcoin and Economy is very strong. Bitcoin can improve the economy of a single person and also of a country. There are many opportunities with bitcoin for people so that they can earn a good income with bitcoin. Like Working online for the investor and traders of the bitcoin.  working with bitcoin investors make people rich and working with trader give them high idea about the bitcoin too. After that you can also invest and can make trad with bitcoin.

Paraphrased spam:
The connection between the Bitcoin and Economy is extremely solid. Bitcoin can enhance the economy of a solitary individual and furthermore of a nation. There are numerous open doors with bitcoin for individuals so they can acquire a decent wage with bitcoin. Like Working on the web for the speculator and merchants of the bitcoin. working with bitcoin financial specialists make individuals rich and working with broker give them high thought regarding the bitcoin as well. After that you can likewise contribute and can make trad with bitcoin.

The original
Why not?It can be possible to recognized Bitcoin around the world if   everybody legalized it.When BTC was used by everybody no one are poor.
Maybe as of now they know or hear about Bitcoin but lack of information regarding cryptocurrency.And some place has no internet.

Paraphrased
Why not?It can be conceivable to perceived Bitcoin around the globe if everyone legitimized it.When BTC was utilized by everyone nobody are poor.
Perhaps starting at now they know or find out about Bitcoin yet absence of data in regards to cryptocurrency.And some place has no web.

Original
thats good to hear that forex had already decided to accept cryptos on their platform this event could greatly have a big impact to the cryptocurrency economy but not only forex but also some other big companies online like facebook and amazon has also planning to have a partnership with crypto specifically bitcoins but soon they could also add some altcoins like eth as an alternative to bitcoin if ever the fees had sky rocketed again.

Paraphrased
That is great to hear that forex had effectively chosen to acknowledge cryptos on their stage this occasion could extraordinarily have a major effect to the digital money economy yet forex as well as some other huge organizations online like facebook and amazon has likewise wanting to have an association with crypto particularly bitcoins however soon they could likewise include some altcoins like eth as a contrasting option to bitcoin if at any point the expenses had soar once more.

It seems to be working as most people don't notice something like that. It's nice to see spammers are putting so much effort into this. I guess this is what we call an excess of form. Smiley

I don't get why someone might think you get away with posting the same message 7 times in one thread with one account and 4 times with the other.
It's possible that one of those guys saw the other doing it and thought it to be easy money.
Behold, the dynamic duo:

It seems some people have taken a different approach to posting. Since they got nothing to say and short posts and copypasta are treated like spam and deleted they're making up stuff. That's some lorem ipsum style posting, just take a look below. It's not even about the repetitions but overall quality of the posts. There's completely no content just the same phrases over and over to match the required number of words and make it look like the post has a meaning.

If need to buy and sell you will now the bitcoin prices information. So you will learn the bitcoin prices information. If need the information check the market place. Then you will know the information of the buy and sell. It will helpful to improve your knowledge and future investment.
Some people don't know the market prices information. Market prices is fix the share market prices list. 

Bitcoin is good to use for the future growth. Economy is important of the country. Economy will growth country also growth. But economy growth is people growth. So people will growth country will growth. So  bitcoin help to people growth for the future it will learn more information.
Bitcoin is future currency. So good opportunist of the growth life improvement.

Invest to money you will understand the process. You check the market prices it will gather before investing. It helpful to invest the money. If invest you will check the market prices. Some time it will down So check the any time for the process in the future growth.
Most of the people now invest the money for the improvement company etc.... market is the change the process and all process.
10  Other / Meta / List of stolen accounts on: October 15, 2017, 05:54:23 PM
With all the hacking happening lately and time it takes to recover the accounts such a list could be useful. Other users would know which accounts were stolen and:
-wouldn't allow them in sig campaigns / wouldn't pay them if they're already in
-would give them a temporary negative trust until the account is given back to the rightful owner
-wouldn't get scammed by them

I think we should do what we can to make it as unprofitable for the hackers as possible. What do you think?

A copper coil enclosed in a rock was found in the mountains near Kosovo. Looks like an ancient transformer and was dated as being 20000 years old.
This is just one of many artefacts ancient civilisations left on Earth.
