1  Bitcoin / Armory / Unable to start Armory in Windows 10 on: March 20, 2018, 03:58:13 PM
I've tried 0.96 official version with core 0.15.1. Then 0.96.4RC with core 0.16. Same results in both cases - I get an error message telling me to look up log life.

Here is a log:

5  Economy / Gambling / BFL 500Gh/s mini rig raffle on: July 05, 2013, 02:38:47 PM
This is the Butterfly Labs Bitforce Mini Rig SC 500Gh/s raffle!

There is going to be a 2000 tickets available for 1btc each. The registration for the raffle will take place here. and will be closed at 02:00 GMT SUNDAY 07.JUL.2013. The winner will have an option to keep the rig hosted at the current place or pick it up locally.

The actual hash rate of the mini rig is not 500Ghs, but 480Ghs. That's because there are 8 boards inside, 60Ghs each.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

1. Announce in this thread, how many tickets you will be buying
2. Send a private message to me with the same information
3. We will send you a unique bitcoin address to pay the tickets
4. After we get the bitcoins we will add you to the public list of paid tickets
5. When the list reaches 2000 paid tickets, we will announce the block ( it will be around 4 hours away )


Rules of the contest:
    The odds of winning this raffle is 1 / 2000 (total number of tickets sold) for each ticket.
    The raffle will start only if there is at least 2000 tickets registered and only after all 2000 tickets are sold.
    This raffle will end on Wednesday, July 10, 2013 at 11pm GMT. If all 2000 tickets are not sold by that time, all bitcoins received will be returned to participants.
    You may purchase as many tickets as you like.
    Whether buying a single ticket or bulk tickets, each ticket will have its own ticket number.
    The only piece of information you need to submit is your email address and your forum nickname.

Winner will be determined by the blockchain, I will announce a non-mined block number after the tickets are sold and after that block is generated, winning hash for that block will be put into a simple sha + mod(2000) calculation, it will give out a number between 0-1999.

Tickets will be numbered between 0-1999 to avoid confusion

    The raffle will be decided by this python script everyone will be able to verify the winner independently:

Quote
import hashlib
temphash = hashlib.sha256(hashoftheannouncedblock).hexdigest()
luckynumber = int(temphash,16)% 2000
print luckynumber
       
    Once the results of the raffle have been verified, the winner will get remote access to the mini rig SC within one hour. If the winner wants the minirig in a different location, he/she should pick it up and arrange the shipment. Mini rig owner's identity and location will be revealed to the winner only. Hosting costs (at the current facility) for the next 90 days are paid by the current owner of the mini rig.

This raffle is not related to Butterflylabs or its employees in any way, any questions or comments regarding BFlabs or their employees should be kept out of this thread.

Once paid, tickets are refundable only if the raffle is cancelled, and in that case every ticket will be refunded, transaction fees will be paid by me.




Enjoy and good luck!
6  Bitcoin / Project Development / Bitcoin wallet. Hard to steal "sand watches" concept. on: April 27, 2013, 08:10:01 PM
Anyone familiar with bitcoin probably knows well enough its current biggest problems. One of which is bitcoin wallet security. You can take all sorts of security measures, whether its anti-virus software, offline linux based devices, paper and other non-digital versions of wallets. But there is always a chance that someone could eventually steal it, no matter how hard you hide it.

Is there anything we could do to prevent that from happening? I say yes there is. And here's what I think: Since whatever happens to your wallet, if it gets stolen eventually someone would try to send the money off of it, so your bitcoins are limited to bitcoin blockchain anyways. And here comes the catch. You could limit access to your bitcoins not only by securing the wallet file/private key in space continuum, but also in time. No, I'm not suggesting time travel, but something close enough. Imagine you can stall or set an exact time it takes to withdraw bitcoins from your wallet, right when you set it up the first time. Just enough time for you to cancel the transaction which is about to take place, in case your wallet has been compromised, and even send all your coins to another wallet without using a compromised password. You could argue that such system could be cracked offline, or the burglar could imitate emergency reallocation of funds. But we already know that the most secure system available to us is blockchain. Since bitcoins are to precious to be used to secure other bitcoins, alternative crypto-currency could be used for that purpose - namecoins. It could be anything else, but namecoins receive the benefits of bitcoin security, since they can be merge mined (that is mined at the same time with bitcoins without additional effort and have same level of network security). Namecoin wallet could be merged with bitcoin wallet to provide the latter with security in such a way, that any bitcoin transaction will result in a number of namecoin transactions first, one every few minutes (or hours), using insignificant amount of namecoins. For example, if you set your wallet to send the actual bitcoins only after 2 hours after the request, it would send namecoins 6 times every 20 minutes first, to a predefined namecoin address. The amount of namecoins sent in those transactions could be a pseudo random generated number so the bitcoin wallet can identify it with a particular bitcoin transaction about to commence (kind of an OTP pass generated by namecoind for the bitcoind). EDIT: this is to avoid faking the time change, if the wallet went offline for some time after the transaction initiation. Timestamped transactions in namecoin blockchain should avoid that issue.

If someone stole your wallet and trying to get bitcoins off your wallet, then you'd have 2 hours to cancel that transaction by sending namecoins (from any wallet) to a predefined address. You could even have a list of "options". Lets say, you have a number of wallets stored in different places in various forms and you know that some of them are still safe. You send a specific amount of namecoins to a predefined namecoin address (For example 0.2384 nmc, amount is used like a PIN number) and as soon as your stolen wallet identifies that transaction as confirmed it sends bitcoins straight away to your safe wallet. You could have a few wallets set up like that. I believe it would be wise to make those predefined namecoin addresses unchangeable and encrypted very hard, without possibility to recover the pass used.

This concept might have a flaw and of course not perfect. You could have all your alternative wallets compromised too and no way to recover your btc, but at least it gives you time to act upon the theft, BEFORE it actually happens. I'm not a security expert or an IT developer, but this idea came across my mind and I'm sharing it with you guys, in hopes that it might be useful. I don't know if its possible to implement it in the actual software (but it should be). I think when it comes to big money, the wallet should have at least something like this, I'd set it up for 24 hours at least for the transaction to go through. And have a normal wallet for day to day purchases =)

If you like the idea, please upvote it on reddit =): http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/1d8cj6/bitcoin_wallet_hard_to_steal_sand_watches_concept/

8  Local / Юристы / Закон о национальной платежной системе on: October 02, 2012, 03:19:31 PM
С 1 октября вступили в силу поправки к закону о Национальной платежной системе, которые касаются переводов средств с помощью Интернета. Теперь владельцы web-кошельков, не идентифицирующие свою личность, будут законодательно ограничены в обороте средств и в сумме остатка на счетах. Как поясняют Новые известия, официально введение ограничений аргументируется необходимостью борьбы с криминалом и терроризмом, однако эксперты отмечают, что новшество является лишь начальной мерой по пресечению финансирования оппозиции из-за рубежа.

Теперь анонимный владелец интернет-кошелька будет ограничен возможностью получать или переводить сумму в 40 тысяч рублей в месяц. При этом на его счету не должно быть больше 15 тысяч рублей. Вторая категория клиентов сможет анонимно владеть 100 тыс. электронных рублей: это юридические лица и индивидуальные предприниматели.

Эксперты отмечают, что если политика усиления электронного гнета будет продолжена, то это затронет интересы интернет-бизнеса, оборот которого по итогам прошлого года достиг 290 млрд. руб.

Власти хотят контролировать деятельность оппозиции, которая часто опирается на иностранные финансовые ресурсы, сказал изданию директор центра стратегических исследований Другая Европа Павел Левушкан. Правда, в большинстве случаев перечисляемые суммы не превышают обозначенных в законе 40 тыс. руб. Однако, на мой взгляд, введение ограничительных мер лишь начало процесса, гайки будут закручивать и дальше. Причем тем сильнее, чем более сложная для властей будет складываться политическая ситуация в России (В кошелек по паспорту).

Интересно, а как они собираются контролировать анонимные кошельки? Тем более биткойны  Roll Eyes

13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / [PROPOSITION] Bitcoin international promotion campain crowdfunding on: July 07, 2012, 01:06:18 PM
 If you look at how many people (and I mean people with their own audience, like Jon Matonis, Max Keiser and now bitcoinmagazine.net) were trying to get public attention to the bitcoin for the past few years, you might think that there is nothing more we can do. I believe we could crowd fund bitcoin advertisement campain through GLBSE. Hire a team of professional PR managers, and plan through a year long campain. I know this sounds like an expensive proposition, but I believe its our chance to prove community and potential startups that bitcoin can be used as an efficient economic and financial tool. In fact, every bitcoin miner should be directly interested in bitcoin promotion, as its the only way to increase btc/usd exchange rate or even have whole industries using btc, thus entirely eliminating the need for exchange. By crowd funding the ad campain, costs per person should be minimal.
 There are a few areas I personally believe should have our closest attention. Everyone probably have heard of bitcoincard.org. It looks so cool, to the point that many think its just can't be real. That product have been confirmed to be real by many famous in btc community parties, like Mr.Gavin, bitinstant.com and etc. They propose to have processing nodes installed in shops and other public places. I was thinking maybe they could also be placed inside cargo trucks (rented out to truck owners or drivers) along with cheap ASICs like Jalapenos in one configuration, so the node could give some benefit as well and reduce transaction processing fees of those nodes. So you could be driving on a highway and get your transactions processed while you pass a truck with bitcoincard node. Another place to use these cards is Africa. Its a very popular place for micropayments, but atm the market is taken by mobile phone payments. I believe there is room for bitcoin there.
The most obvious industries for bitcoin to capture are online software shops, music shops, maybe we will see online cinemas in near future...basically any digital content which could be delivered immidiately. Also international students should be targeted as potential bitcoin users. Taxi companies, the list goes on...
Please share your thoughts on the subject, and maybe will'll be able to come up with a sound GLBSE startup plan.

Сожалею что приходится дублировать пост наймы53, я бы и сам скорее вложился бы в его проект, если бы не одно но. Большая часть прибыли с асиков придется на первые недели, и ждать пока коробки пройдут таможню это потеря прибыли, так что я предлогаю вложиться в мой проект. Я буду заказывать с апгрейдом фпга коробок на асик коробки. Акции будут состовлять половину стоимости заказа на сумму 29200 баксов (если к открытию не все акции продадутся, придется мне добить своими деньгами, но это может отнять драгоценное время). Фпга коробки примерно через три недели начнут работу недалеко от офиса BFL, в спец помещении с кондерами. Когда асики будут готовы, замена произойдет в кротчайшие сроки(тот же день или в течении суток) и мы сможем снять все сливки Smiley. Более того, оборудование будет работать на GPUMAX при появлении работы и хопать по пулам, генерируя дор. прибыль (105-120%ппс), 10% из которой будет уплачиваться на обслуживание.
Жду ваших предложений. Если будут отклики с реальными предложениями, то я выпущу сегодня акции. У вас будет вся необходимая информация обо мне, личные данные, адрес и тд.
