1  Bitcoin / Mycelium / Mycelium finally releasing Segwit support this month? on: October 16, 2018, 05:16:56 PM
I've found this screenshot on Reddit:

Here is a comment from giszmo on the same thread:

Yes, as we said again and again, we are working on a segwit release (under the lead of Sergey Lappo) and I just got permission to share some insights what our main road blocks are.

We support many account types and Mycelium has many features none of our current devs ever used for any real world purpose. We currently also lack Trezor Model T and Ledger Nano S to test with (we will shortly get those). How does SegWit play together with our local trader platform? How about [Shamir's Secret Sharing]('s_Secret_Sharing) (yes, Mycelium supports that. I don't know exactly how but I guess we should make sure not to break it in case any user has his fortune in this) or BitId (we know that for bech32, message signing is not well defined).

So, for the simplest of cases of creating a new HD wallet, SegWit works. I could record a demo or show your the transactions we created with our tests.
With Trezor One we ran into a UI issue that is quite interesting: Our approach is a mixed mode account. That means your receiving address will change from legacy to segwit compatibility with optional segwit native. (Terminology is another topic. Power users would maybe want to see bech32, BIP84/49/44, P2SH segwit, P2WKH_P2SH or something like that.) So when in a payment situation you can present your bech32 address to the payer and if his wallet doesn't recognize it, you can switch to p2sh with a simple click, without having to switch to a different account. Also when you pay a bech32 address, your change will go to a bech32 address to get more privacy. (If change should go to a legacy address when paying a legacy address is still up to debate. I think the current state is that it would go to p2sh instead.) Anyway, account mixing raises compatibility and standardization concerns. Trezor for example handles your bech32 account as a completely separate account from your legacy account. I can spend in mixed mode or from trezor's perspective from several accounts at a time but it gets confused about the change output and that has some scary consequences for Trezor users: If you spend from one account and the change goes into another of your accounts, the trezor will ask the user to confirm **sending** the change. It does indicate that the change would get sent to the trezor again but when paying $12 with my Trezor I get scared when I have to confirm sending $12000 to another address that I have never seen before even if it says "Trezor #1" below the address. So ... we have to see if Trezor has a good solution for that, how keepkey and Ledger deal with this, if we should reduce privacy on hardware wallets to keep support manageable, if we provide mixed mode as an opt-in for the more techy users etc.

So yes, we are working on it and we probably could release it shortly but to avoid scary moments for certain users we would probably have to polish the release a bit. We still have to test all features with the release candidate. And then there is code reviewing. It's +8500-5300 lines of code to review.

And about the address scheme that will be used:

bc1 addresses will be part of the initial segwit release. your default receiving address will switch from legacy to p2sh and you can switch it manually to bech32.

Edit: the app got removed. Thanks, everyone!

Here we go again with the fake apps on Play Store... First, it was MEW and now it's Ledger.

Please be careful and help us having the app removed by reporting it.


If you are on Android, scroll down a little bit, click on "flag as inappropriate" and select a reason.

3  Other / Meta / ICO thread being bumped by potential alts on: July 13, 2018, 04:58:20 PM
Thread: Team CyphrCoin Announces Their "Unique" Cryptocurrency Project

Am I the only one who thinks this thread is intentionally being bumped by alt accounts?

In this one, newbies and brand new accounts already created 8 pages of "good project" posts in just 4 hours.

And this is not the first time the "Team CyphrCoin" has been doing this. I was looking at the Patrol page the last 2 days and I've reported at least 30 similar "good project" posts in the thread that now has been nuked, which has the same name as the current one.

First post (NOW NUKED): Team CyphrCoin Announces Their "Unique" Cryptocurrency Project
Current one (STILL UP): Team CyphrCoin Announces Their "Unique" Cryptocurrency Project

Screenshots of the last 2 pages of the thread:

A few of them from the old thread in my history of reports:

P.S: I'm making this thread because this is not the first time I've seen this kind of threads. There are MANY more in the Announcements (Altcoins) board and many more accounts doing this.
4  Other / Meta / User using self-moderated thread to bypass 24h to delete post in altcoin board on: July 12, 2018, 06:31:15 AM
A few weeks ago, some users were using a bot to make a post and immediately delete them so they can bump their threads without getting any attention.

To fix that, theymos made that users could only delete their post after 24 hours on certain boards.

I think how I'd prefer to handle it is to prevent deleting posts within 24 hours of posting them, in the problematic sections only. Which sections are problematic?

OK, the 24-hour limit is now in place in the sections that people mentioned.

Recently, I was checking the Patrol page and caught a user using two accounts and a self-moderated thread to bypass that system.

1. The first account creates a self-moderated thread.
2. The second account posts anything in the thread.
3. The author of the thread deletes the post from the user 2.
4. User 2 posts the same thing again.
5. Repeat.

In this case:
The author of the post: Vitalang LLC #2223793
The user making the repetitive posts: FramokayTM #2190200

5  Economy / Service Discussion / Using the Hola VPN chrome extension? Your MEW wallet may have been compromised. on: July 10, 2018, 01:04:33 PM

Urgent! If you have Hola chrome extension installed and used MEW within the last 24 hrs, please transfer your funds immediately to a brand new account!

We received a report that suggest Hola chrome extension was hacked for approximately 5 hrs and the attack was logging your activity on MEW.

If you have the Hola VPN extension, which is a free VPN for Chrome, uninstall it right now, create a new MEW wallet and move all your coins away immediately.

P.S: This is not an issue with MEW. It's the same as downloading a virus, risking your wallet and blaming your wallet developer.
6  Other / Meta / Is this against the rules? on: March 24, 2018, 01:59:40 PM
The user mugensiz has been creating multiple new threads about his "trading terminal" every day. Every thread he has created so far is exactly the same. And he already did that 39 times.
Just check his 'last topics started by this person' page.

Today, he already made 8 new threads in multiple boards.

And the worst of all is that his software is probably a malware. Here is a VirusTotal scan of his file:

Shouldn't he be banned?
7  Economy / Scam Accusations / User "johningreece" spamming fake Electrum Gold wallet on: November 10, 2017, 06:35:08 PM
What happened:
The user johningreece is legit spamming the whole forum with his fake Electrum Gold wallet (electrum-gold dot org) that may contain malwares with the intention of stealing Bitcoins.

- Virustotal scan of the file linked in the website:
- The source code at the bottom of the page links to

You can use the Electrum Gold wallet for bitcoin gold  https :// <-- SCAM SITE DO NOT VISIT THIS SITE
Fairly sure that is just a reboot of the SCAM WALLET listed here: it is even using the same "screenshot" (with some edits to the toolbar)

For the record, that electrum-gold website has a single download link that links to a .zip file here: https :// <-- SCAM WALLET!! DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS!!!

That "github" has absolutely ZERO code associated with it...

DO NOT visit electrum-gold and DO NOT download and/or use the wallet... you're likely to lose BTC/BTG and infect your computer with all sorts of malware.

Keep an eye on <-- OFFICIAL Bitcoin Gold website... they will announce when the BTG compatible wallet is released!

8  Economy / Scam Accusations / Dead-End Ethereum Mixer - FAKE MIXER! on: November 06, 2017, 06:40:38 PM
What happened:

So, a newbie just created a thread asking for reviews about his new Ethereum Mixer called "Dead-End Ethereum Mixer".

The minimum amount is 0.1 ETH ($30) and he is paying 0.5 ETH ($150) per valid review. The website doesn't even have a paid domain since it's just a free website created with Weebly. It's a static website that accepts anything in the "INPUT ETHEREUM ADDRESS" and "ETHEREUM FORWARD ADDRESS" fields (even if it's not a valid Ethereum address) and gives the same deposit address to every user and mixing session.

His thread is self-moderated, so my reply is probably going to be deleted when OP is back online.


Edit: Write anything you want in the "INPUT ETHEREUM ADDRESS" and "ETHEREUM FORWARD ADDRESS" and the website will show you a static address. I tested in a second device with a VPN and it's the same deposit in all of them. 100% SCAM

The account serenawild was registered 1 hour ago and already has 3 posts promoting his accelerator. The problem is that this website is probably fake.

What happened:
Newbie account created 1 hour ago, only to spam his fake accelerator as an attempt to steal users.

His fake website:
Archive version of his fake website:

Why do I think the website is fake:

1. You can put whatever you want in the "bitcoin transaction ID" field and it will show up as "The transaction number X is NOT confirmed", even if the transaction you submit is already confirmed. You can even put a single space or just visit the page and it will work.

2. In addition to accepting any text in the "bitcoin transaction ID" field, they use the same address for anything you input. Which is the address "1NFoFAGNQmYUNHzHimADR2b7CzK4Gd8J7N". I wonder how would they know who paid for which transaction acceleration...

3. The user has 3 posts, and all of them are him spamming his fake website across the forum in threads related to the acceleration of transactions.

4. The user copied the FAQ above the ViaBTC accelerator ( and posted in his website's frontpage. You can even see on the "How does work?" part that is written "ViaBTC pool and cloud mining contract customers will enjoy chances for an upgraded “Customer-Only” accelerator service [...]"

Hi everyone.

I found this "Time Locked Address" on and wanted to know how am I supposed to spend my funds after the date choosed before the creation of the address.

So, after putting my public key on the first field and selected the date, I get an address to send the coins and a "Redeem Script".

What should I do after that date to be able to get my coins back?

11  Other / New forum software / "Abuse Detected" fixed! on: June 23, 2017, 11:40:00 PM
This is a reminder to all members who were looking forward to using the new beta version of BitcoinTalk (like me).

The "Abuse Detected" bug that appeared whenever someone tried to reset their password to use the new forum seems to have been fixed, since I was able to reset my password and login in the new Beta version.

Now you can login and see the forum for yourself. Just remember that the migration is still going on and some boards (most of them) still have 0 threads and some are outdated. But at least we made some progress.

I'm really looking forward to the full launch of the new forum and the new tools that will be available. E.g: Mentions notification
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / I forgot to claim my Signature Campaign payment til today on: June 22, 2017, 10:57:13 PM
C+P from my Reddit thread on /r/Wavesplatform

So, one year ago I joined the Waves Signature Campaign in exchange for stakes on the Waves ICO.

Today I was talking with a friend and I told him about the cryptocurrency world and how you could make money just by following a project and following them on FB/Twitter for coins, etc.

Them I remembered about Waves and started searching my old stuff to see how much Waves I got from their ICO last year, so I could give me friend an example on how much you could get.

I found this article on how to claim your bounties and saw a link to the "Signature Campaign Payment Status" spreadsheet.

I remembered how I participated on the campaign and when I saw my name on the "Haven't yet claimed" page I remembered how I forgot to claim my rewards.

Does anyone know If would still be possible to claims those Waves somehow? I should receive 344 Waves.

14  Bitcoin / Alternative clients / [Bither] How to backup my HD Account? on: October 07, 2015, 09:07:09 PM
Hello. I just created a HD Account on bither because of the possibility of using the same wallet on a windows client and an android. But I don't know how to backup my wallet since I can't find any wallet file and on the Import option, I only have the option to import the Private Key and BIP38-private key and on the export option I only can export the seed phrase and seed qr. What can I do to keep my wallet safe if I lose my phone or my computer broke?

Sorry for my bad english.
