1  Economy / Digital goods / Any TRUSTED member looking to sell Amazon UK vouchers? on: October 19, 2018, 06:10:09 PM
I found something on amazon I wanted and I want to top up my credit there, I'm looking for about a 100 voucher for an amount of bitcoin (make me an offer).

Trusted members only please (and by trusted I mean ones I've seen that have contributed to the discussions of the forum I would have seen and ones who have been here for a while, not necessarily some trust you have from the trust system but everything helps)...
2  Economy / Gambling discussion / Would a site with a slightly negative house edge still be profitible? on: October 17, 2018, 01:09:42 PM
I'm currently thinking that if someone made a dice site and had it to have a -1% house edge it could still be profitible.

When people gamble, they're either aggressive gamblers or gamblers for fun (a few botters but not so many). If there was a -1% house edge, this would attract people to your casino and they would usually get addicted to it or they'd not deposit more than they could lose. Things like the martingale strategy would still have a similar likelihood of failing too.

Am I confusing something here or is this correct?

I came across this recently and just laughed at it for a bit....

I'm guessing someone likes the new way of getting past recaptcha, no one could sit there and do this could they? Although a bot would take a while to program...

Edit now he's quoting himself:
4  Other / Meta / Link expiration on: October 03, 2018, 09:21:16 PM
I'm not sure if it's just me thinking this but I was searchin for my old topics and found one that had a link to a site, it looks to be a legitimate site at the time but now has been bought by someone else and is potentially being used for malicious purposes (it wanted me to allow my firefox to disable noscript and then allow a program to install - surely that's going to be harmless Grin)...

Anyway, could we make it so that if links are posted after about a year or two that they expire unless they're from a highly visited site like or other sites like that that get a lot of clicks.
This should also be helpful in reducing database sizes too. I reckon that there's a lot of links that are posted here that are going to go dead in a few years anyway so those could be de-linked too.
5  Other / Meta / Evolution of rank names on: October 03, 2018, 04:12:52 PM
Did satohsi decide the rank names or have they been done individually since then?
Also, has it always been Brand new, newbie, jr member, member, full member, sr member, hero member and legendary member or were there any changes along the way in order to reach this? (Reason I ask is that the 'full member' rank title to me always looks a bit out of place and trange in comparison to all of the other rank titles)?
6  Other / Meta / Can merits be awarded in threads that aren't for public view? on: September 25, 2018, 10:20:36 PM
I was wondering what would happen if a moderator gave another moderator merit in the staff board how would it look?

I'm not sure the subject would be displayed as someone like Hilariousandco coming up with a solution to "cookie vulnerability by use of iframes on other sites" (for example if that existed) clearly that would arise speculation and there would be people either moaning or trying to sus the vulnerability to make a few quick bucks...

I'm not sure if this has been addressed elsewhere but what actually would happen (I know deleted post has the "deleted post" sign on it)...

(Disclaimer: I do not know if iframes do cause an issue for other sites to gain access to cookies however I can see everything you all do on your computer screens and in your minds and will smite anyone who attempts to use such vulnerabilities for malicious intentions Grin you have been warned).
7  Economy / Speculation / I expected a price flop with the recent news. on: September 19, 2018, 09:04:51 AM
Due to this: I was expecting a significant price drop. It doesn't matter that the vulnerability is a small one, it's the fact that it got missed by the core devs for so long and maybe smaller things could also get missed by them accidentally along the way that are more significant...

Anyone got any thoughs, was I being too pessamistic here? (by significant I mean 300-500$ the coin itself is quite stable)
8  Bitcoin / Electrum / Electrum gives me a seed and then won't accept it on: September 16, 2018, 09:26:39 PM
I have been using electrum and was trying to make a 14 of 15 multisig (I'm aware of the high fees, and am hoping it'll make me less likely to spend those bitcoins)...

Although, I go to put in a random file name (to make it go through the create wallet stages) and put in to create a multisig wallet > generate 14 require 15 > create new seed and write down my seed in my notebook. I then hit next and get taken to a screen, I put my seed in and the nexxt button doesn't highligh. I delete that seed that I inputted and go through each word to test with the predicted text but that similarly doesn't work (I'm on my third crossed out seed now, if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated).

I am using electrum V3.2.3 and V2.2.2
9  Other / Serious discussion / Bitmain are selling 3 tonne boxes? on: September 16, 2018, 07:37:56 PM
reference link

They've come up with a new and original idea of an antbox (not really they're just copying bitfury)...

Since I'm not posting in the mining section as of now, I'll have to post this here.
I'm very cunfused as to how they seem to have worked out the weight before the price...

DISCLAIMER: miners are apparently sold separately...
10  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Best way to make multisig wallets on: September 16, 2018, 02:29:14 PM
I want to try to use electrum on my regular machine running a live OS. My issue is, I'm not sure if there's an edition of live windows that can be used (linux seems too dependent on its dependencies to be useful to me - too much reliance on running random scripts from the internet).

Is it safe to assume, once I've sent an amount of coins there and none of them leave and my seeds have been taken completely offline and just stored in a notebook somewhere that my coins are safe for any new coins - I'd use my phone but that seems to have a limit of 5 keys?
11  Other / Meta / Is the altcoin section the biggest (in the amount of storage capacity needed) on: September 15, 2018, 09:51:59 PM
I was wondering these two questions recently.

1. How big is this forum (data-wise) in total.
2. Is the altcoin section the biggest section in the forum also (I've just looked through about a hundred pages of airdrop/bounty campaigns and all those social media links look like they'd take up a lot of space) - and how big is that if it's possible to work out that information?

If there are live stats on this data then do tell me so I can delete this thread...
12  Other / Meta / Can someone delete these posts and ban this person/their accounts on: September 15, 2018, 02:26:43 PM
I had a thread for making bitfury miners, I'm not sure my question was fully addressed and I'm still waiting to find an answer.

This has happened though:


Can someone ban these accounts before they post with another one and continue to derail the thread with their shitcoin.

On to a more pressing matter, I've spotted this coin before. It seems they're the new coin to get spammed. It's almost as if they're getting paid to spam their ref link (like a pay per click rather than a pay per sale)...

I think it's a better way.

13  Other / Beginners & Help / Difficulty factors added to bruteforcing multisig private keys on: September 12, 2018, 02:46:29 PM
As I understand it, a multisig (let's say for example) a 15/15 multisig requires a signature from all 15 private keys of a controlling address.

Is it therefore much harder to bruteforce if quantum computers descend in the next few years? I'm thinking of printing out 15 seeds and storing those seeds on a flash drive and putting that flash drive in a secure location (with other crypto related things so I remember what it is)...

Am I right in thinking this or is there some sort of private key that can be calculated out of all the other private keys that exist which relates to a "regular" address' private key?
14  Other / Ivory Tower / A 9 bitcoin coin (apparently) on: September 07, 2018, 05:53:08 PM

I was looking at this market specifically and it looks like it's gone from being worth literally 0 satoshi to being worth 9BTC (900000000 satoshi) that's an infinte percentage increase and I'm wondering what the point of doing this would be and who'd have the money to do it.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Coinomi TX Signing Issues on: September 07, 2018, 12:07:20 PM
I tried to make a transaction with coinomi and sign it, the signed hex is

My electrum says it's signed but my core says there's something wrong with the crtiptpubkey, I need to broadcast it in core as I don't wnat to pay a fee with it and it's affordable to just leave it as is until the bitcoin developers realise they don't have to enforce adding a fee to transactions any more...
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Make and sign a transaction with core unsynced on: September 06, 2018, 05:27:33 PM
I know it's possible to make a raw transaction and then sign it on the blockchain without the blockchain to be fully synced (I checked on reddit), can anyone show me how to do it though? (I want to send it fee-less if possible as I don't need it to ever confirm - realistically speaking)...

I also don't want to import the private key on it as the private key is potentially compromised so I don't want to accidentally use the address.
17  Other / Serious discussion / Antminer S9-Hydro on: September 02, 2018, 11:11:51 PM
I posted a thread on this on the mining board but it didn't go so well so I'm posting it here...

I found the S9-Hydro and was wondering a few things:
Has anyone got one of these and knows whether it's hard or not to attach the radiator/water cooler to the miner?
Does anyone also know the import duties from China to the UK - I know I have to pay 20% vat on top of that too but not the exact duties?

Thanks for your replies!
18  Economy / Gambling / Are there any good arcade style games? on: September 01, 2018, 08:28:30 PM
So I've been with bitcoin for a while and I used to like coinflapper (which, for those of you who don't know, was a bitcoin game available from a site of bitplay dot today but the site has a new owner as far as I can tell) you used to be able to enter tournaments and bet 0.001BTC with a top prize of 0.003BTC and a secondary prize of 0.001BTC which was qutie a fun game to play as it was just like flappy bird.

I've swtiched to doing what I was before then and playing a game called alien run from bitcoin aliens but the rewards are tiny and there's no gambling in them so you can't advance the amount you have very quickly...
Are there any good apps/sites for this with arcade-style games for example (regular casino games aren't as fun for me as tournament style games)?
19  Other / Meta / My thread got trashed without a notification and without a reason. on: August 31, 2018, 05:23:20 PM
I made a thread about the new antminer s9 hydro. It got trashed by the mods for some unknown reason (maybe I'll repost it in serious discussion).

I got redirected to another thread on it filled with utter shit.

All I wanted to know was how difficult the radiator for water cooling would be to add and got nothing but a deleted topic and a waste of time (don't reply to my question here though).

EDIT, my OP which I found going through my drafts.
I stubled across this today:

I'm wondering if, by the name and the fact there's an optional "radiator" you can buy, does this mean it's water cooled (I noticed it's quieter but :I'm not sure what 50dB sounds like, if anyone could enlighten me - I think it's fairly quiet though).

Also, will it be fairly simple to attach all the parts together does anyone know?
20  Bitcoin / Mining support / Guides for building miners out of bitfury chips? on: August 29, 2018, 05:30:12 PM
I see there are chips for sale from bitfury and I'm curious as to make something from them as I want to make something that covers quite a large volume (in comparison to normal miners)... I have a couple of raspberry pi's and old computers that I could dedicate to connect them to it to keep them running, but I'm not sure of any guides that are available for making such devices.
