1  Economy / Gambling discussion / Your epic fail experience in gambling on: May 15, 2022, 04:49:38 AM
I have many epic fail moments in my gambling experience that I want to share. Some of them is the reason why I keep playing while some are the experience that makes me quit on gambling for more than a year. Let me start with my first epic fail experience when I was addicted on dice way back 2016.

I'm a regular player on Primedice that time and I manage to grow my balance from 0.1BTC to 4BTC within a week of non-stop manual playing using common martingale strategy. I was very happy at that time until I watch some random video on youtube showing tutorial to do automated betting with his setup. I was interested to follow his setup since he shows how much he won. I try it by myself using small bets until I forgot my auto bet running overnight, I was in shocked that balance got zero after hitting more than 30's red streak and all my BTC that I earned for a week is already gone overnight just because I follow some random guy trick while my strategy is working at that time.

After that, I conclude that personally I was so easy to convinced and I didn't care about the risk of what I'm entering when I was happy in my profit. I was not contented on my profit and tiring way that's why I seek some alternative way that make my gambling experience more hassle free. There's no easy formula on gambling to become successful.

Whats' your epic fail experience in gambling?
Let's see your conclusion and re-evaluate your decision making after the epic fail experience.

Token with Upcoming Event -
>You can use this to choose a coin to invest and setup a position depends on the upcoming event date. There's a hot section and potential coin there. Most probably you can use that section to spot good project but remember to sell before the actual date arrived unless it is an airdrop event with good return.

4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Poly Network Hack Clarification on: August 11, 2021, 04:57:04 AM

This is a big question to ask. I've seen a couple of comments like "Not your keys, not your Crypto" and likening it to BitConnect or Mt. Gox. It's similar but with a big caveat, these types of attacks don't typically target users crypto in their wallet. Custodial exchange and centralized lending will often target users crypto just sitting in a spot wallet.

When you supply liquidity to a protocol on DeFi it is not your crypto. You're keys should still be able to authorize the withdrawal of that crypto or your wallet will have a receipt of supplying like cETH or LP tokens. You are still ultimately the custodian of your own crypto in DeFi

If you've been interacting with DeFi protocols, it is highly unlikely you will wake up to a drained Metamask after one of these hacks. You are too small of a fish for those types of attacks to target. You are more likely to have to fall for a phishing scam if that is the case.

Typically hacks like this target liquidity pools. Liquidity pools often have immense value in them. You may lose crypto you have deposited in a hacked pool or farm, but often times protocols come up with solutions to reimburse any lost crypto like PancakeBunny earlier this year that suffered a flash loan attack.

Poly Network holds large liquidity pools to facilitate cross chain transfers. Holding a lot of exit liquidity on each chain. The money that was hacked from this event is likely to have been stolen from those who have large amounts of liquidity staked. This is not likely to be you farming CAKE on PCS!

Cross Chain protocols are incredibly hard to code, and they should be treated with caution when supplying liquidity to them.


I want to keep this part simple for those not technically minded but there are currently two working theories as to how the hack took place. They both involve the private keys for the ownership of the liquidity pools.

🔑Theory 1: Leaked Key

Poly Network has a big security problem from the outset. They had a single sig key to the pools which means that only one signer would need to authorise any changes to the liquidity pool, including withdrawal of funds. This is like leaving a vault of gold with only one key. If you wanted to access this, there wouldn't be any other parties involved.

Current theories suggest that this key was leaked or hacked via another method off-chain. This is the story from early official post mortem from Poly Network

EDIT: This theory has been disproved by Poly Network, but I wrote it so I thought I'd leave it here as an example of an early working theory

🖋 Theory 2: Hacked Contracts

There are two important contracts. A "manager" contract and a "data" contract. The data contract specifies the address which can submit transactions which can withdraw funds from the pool. If someone was to replace this address in the contract to theirs, they could withdraw as much from the pools as possible.

In solidity there is a concept called ownership. A smart contract can set certain functions to only execute if the owner executed them. Typically, when constructed the owner is the wallet who deployed the contract, which is typically the developer. However, in this case the owner of the "Data" contract was the "Manager" contract.

So now, if you were to call a function which could replace the address in the data contract with theirs from the manager, it would be allowed.

But here's another flaw in the design of Poly Network. The "manager" contract exists to run transactions on different chains. It has a function called verifyHeaderAndExecuteTx which verifies that a transaction exists on one chain, and if it does, runs it on another. This is needed for cross chain interoperability.

But wait... we've now got a way to run arbitrary functions from the "manager". If the attacker devises a specific input they can now freely set the most important address, the one which says who can withdraw from the pools, to theirs.

6  Economy / Economics / Is Germany the NEW World’s Crypto Superpower on: August 17, 2020, 09:23:19 AM

"Germany’s Finance Ministry has drafted a bill that will update its legal framework regarding securities.
The bill specifically targets tokenized securities and will bring digital assets closer to traditional financial instruments"

Before this bill, Germany was known for being supportive on cryptocurrency when BAFIN release guideline during ICO madness. This only show how Germany accept and embrace the blockchain technology. They are also currently developing there own stable coin using Stellar, If this become successful and approved, They will be the first country that create there own stable coin and used on there own banking system which will be the game changer on financial world. Maybe many major country will follow this lead especially the US which is very slow on processing any crypto bill.
