1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / BitCoin PoS on: November 17, 2017, 11:41:31 PM
Any one got any plans to Fork BTC 15.1 fro PoW + PoS Coin? with entire block chain and air drop like BCH.

5% Yearly Stake, 10 min block time, SHA256 I guess?

I think it would take a top 10 spot in no time.

2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Wallet for Android / Android Password Hacker on: June 07, 2015, 04:46:24 AM
I had my phone erased, due to my own mistake. So I needed to get my wallet running again on my phone from a backup I created. Well when I went to import it, I could not for the life of me get the correct password. I tired for over an hour.

So after reading a few of the posts here and some from the bitcoind forum I modified a ruby script created by Revalin to work with openssl and look for the correct header record as specified here:

The ruby code works well enough, it is for the newer (v3.47+) wallets, but can be quickly modified for older ones. It does create some files in the system directory based on the password you put in the script. Likely due to the ">" in the charters var.  I am sure someone more knowledgeable in ruby could fix it up proper. It was my first time I have used that language, and it solved my issue.

Anyway I didn't see anything specific for this type of wallet, so I thought I would share. Hope this helps someone some day.

#!/usr/bin/ruby -w

# Put your best guess in passphrase
passphrase = "oops"
characters = " !\"\#$%&'()*+,-./0123456789:;<=>?@ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ[\\]^_`abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz{|}~"

def test(phrase)
  print phrase, "\t"
  msg=`openssl enc -d -aes-256-cbc -a -in bitcoin-wallet-backup-2014-12-06 -k #{phrase} |tr -cd "[:print:]" | awk '{print $1}'`
  msg = msg.chomp
  if msg == "org.bitcoin.production"
    puts "Found it!  #{phrase}"
    exit 0

# transpose adjacent chars
(passphrase.length - 1).times do |i|
  testphrase = passphrase.dup
  testphrase[i] = passphrase[i+1]
  testphrase[i+1] = passphrase[i]
  test testphrase

# delete one char
passphrase.length.times do |i|
  testphrase = passphrase.dup
  testphrase = testphrase[0,i] + testphrase[(i+1)..-1]
  test testphrase

# substitutute one char
passphrase.length.times do |i|
  characters.chars.each do |c|
    testphrase = passphrase.dup
    testphrase[i] = c
    test testphrase

# insert one char
(passphrase.length + 1).times do |i|
  characters.chars.each do |c|
    testphrase = passphrase.dup
    testphrase.insert(i, c)
    test testphrase

puts "No luck."
exit 1

My employer does an United Way Fundraiser each year. During that time they match each gift. I would like to do the same, which means each of your donations will quadrupole in value!

How can you help?  

Donate to this HBN address.  THIS IS OVER NOW

For each donation, up to 3,000 HBN total, I will match it.  This amount may increase in the future. ( I have now increased this match to 5,000)  ( This matching is now maxed out )

At the time of redemption I will pay minimum 2.5c per HBN in wallet. If an exchange is higher I will match that. The redemption time will be in Sept./Oct. 2013, exact date to be posted later.  A receipt will be scanned and posted as final proof of donation.

Don't have any HBN? No problem, just point your miners here, . You can also trade some here, Or get some FREE! right here, . Official thread HBN here,

You can also bid for a T-Shirt with proceeds going to this charity event. (Completed)

For all donors I will buy your HBN at 2c per HBN. This is currently higher then Cryptsys! PM me.

Top Donator will win 1 USB Block Erupter, with free shipping!
Current Top: Jdtmp4 @ 2100 HBN. Thanks!

All donors (except the top donor) will be put into a raffle to win a 2nd USB Block Erupter!  Each 5 HBNs will be worth 1 ticket. This will be provable fair with the HBN block chain. I'll post the full details in a later post.

All donations must be in by Sept 10th 5pm EST to qualify for the top donor or the raffle.

A: Maybe, consult your tax adviser. This thread can mark your receipt if you so choose.

Q: Are you going to claim this on taxes as a charitable donation?
