1  Other / Meta / Can a global mod or admin do something about this spammer. on: February 16, 2018, 01:32:09 AM
This idiot keeps spamming threads with multiple posts. I reported him, but thus far not much has been done.

2  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Hitman Pro malware alert pops up after update to 0.15.01 on: October 02, 2017, 01:12:00 PM
If I re-scan the system with Hitman Pro, then the downloaded win64 setup file is being marked as malware, the bitcoin-qt.exe file, and bitcoind.exe file.

If I happen to scan with Avira, another anti virus software, then nothing happens. I downloaded it from bitcoin.org as always, and verified the signature ~ everything seems to be pointing at a false alert, but not 100% sure.

The previous (sub 0.15) versions were never resulting in whatever alert. Maybe that it has to do with important changes that a non technical person as me doesn't know anything about?

Edit ~ I downloaded a whole lot of setup files to test them, and it seems that almost every file of 0.13 and above triggers a malware alert. Everything below 0.13 comes out as clean. Maybe a SegWit related thingy?

But then again, some of the versions above 0.13 came out as clean too, and these have SegWit code as well. Roll Eyes
3  Bitcoin / Mining / Longest found block streak by a pool? on: April 25, 2016, 03:02:31 PM
Not long ago I was watching I believe Antpool finding 4 blocks in a row and it made me wondering...

Which pool has the highest streak of finding a lot blocks in a row?
4  Economy / Speculation / What do you consider to be a long term investment. on: January 24, 2016, 03:28:19 PM
I hear people talking about holding Bitcoin as long term investment and such, but what is long term for you?

I personally find long term to be at least 2 years where I hold my coins without touching them.
