1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Be Careful with Ucoin on: June 07, 2013, 11:03:19 PM
The ANN post here is self moderated so I don't know if he'll delete anything. The OP only released the binary in a .rar file that windows defender picked up

Windows Defender detected a backdoor trojan.....

2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [WTS] 10,000 PNC Porncoins Will trade my useless alt for any of your useless alt on: June 07, 2013, 08:53:38 PM
Anybody remember these coins? I opened up my client today and saw that I had 10k of these. I will trade them for any coin [at my discretion of course], make an offer.
3  Bitcoin / Mining support / Problem with Catalyst Detecting multiple cards in rig on: June 05, 2013, 03:33:56 PM
So, I have a rig with 2 6850's in it. I have Windows 8 64bit, I have Catalyst 12.8 installed and the 2.6 SDK installed. When I open up catalyst and go to overdrive, only one card is showing up. I have both cards plugged into monitors. I am missing something here?
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [ANN] - Free 9-5 EST weekdays alt-coin escrow on: May 14, 2013, 07:50:01 AM
So, with all the new coins coming out and the hype each one gets with people looking to buy and sell coins minutes after the release, there is a lot of room for people to get scammed. I have been watching the forums and I see tons and tons of people getting scammed. So I made this site:

I was even stupid enough myself to send first and got scammed. Luckily, I only lost 8 LTC. That stings, but it wasnít the end of the world. After that happened I set up this site to help out in anyway I can. I am sick of seeing people getting scammed. Itís a very easy problem to avoid, just use an escrow.

Thatís what this site is here to do. The purpose of this site is to provide an easy place to find people willing to serve as escrows for just about any cryptocurrency you could imagine. This site aims to be a network of trustworthy people willing to make the world of cryptocurrency a little better.
I will be contacting trusted members of the community to see if they would be willing to help serve as an escrow when I am not available.

The purpose of this site is not be an automated exchange site. The site relies on human participants to act as escrows. I did this for a few reasons.
1.)It allows for people to act as escrows immediately following the release of a coin, instead of waiting for it to be coded into a website.
2.)It is easier for me because I donít have to code automatic transactions for every new coin that comes out
3.)It ďdecentralizesĒ in a sense the escrow service. If this were an automatic service, it would rely on my servers being up and protected at all times.
4.)Last, but not least, it does something small, but hopefully meaningful in reassuring that there are some honest people out there that want to see cryptocurrencies succeed and arenít just in it to make a quick buck.

I will be acting as a free escrow and will be available most weekdays from 9am to 5pm Eastern Standard Time.

If you have any questions about how this works, please read our tutorial/tips.

Do you want to help make this place better and keep people from getting scammed? Consider becoming an escrow. If you would like to become an escrow, please reply to this thread, or send me a pm.

Features of being an escrow on
-Set your own fees/fee structure
-Set which coins you want to provide escrow for
-Advertise/shamelessly plug whatever you want on your personal escrow page.

Like I said, I am not looking to make money at all on this project, I am just looking to help out this community and keep people from getting scammed. If you don't use my service, please find someone else to do escrow for you, or only trade with trusted members of the forum.

*Also Quick Note* You DO NOT need to become a member of the site at all to use this service. I know how annoying it is to sign up for new sites. Only escrows need to have accounts, which will be set up on a case by case basis to ensure not just anyone can be an escrow.

Anyways, I hope this helps some people not get scammed. It's almost 4 am here, so I'll be going to bed, but I will see you all in a few hours. Thanks.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [Poll]If I built a website for Alt-Coin Escrow would you use it? on: May 08, 2013, 01:20:32 PM
So, with all the new coins coming out and the hype each one gets with people looking to buy and sell coins minutes after the release, there is a lot of room for people to get scammed.

What I am proposing is building a site on which some trusted members of the site could register themselves as escrows for whichever coins they choose too. They would have a public profile showing the addresses they use for escrow so they can be checked at anytime to make sure they are not scamming.

The site would also show who is currently online so that you can trade faster by finding an escrow who is currently online and working. We could also have a section for reviews of the escrow commenting on how fast they are, etc.

As an escrow you could set all your own options, fixed fee, %fee, or a combination of the both, minimum or maximum # of coins to handle, etc. Basically, it would be up to the escrow to set their own rates. This would also help people find better options.

Would anyone be interested in a site like this? I wouldn't really try to make any money off of something like this, maybe put some ads, if that, I'm just tired of seeing people get scammed. If someone else builds it before me, or makes a better version, or something like this already exists, so be it, I just want something in place to help people.

As I write this, honestly we could probably just have a sticky thread for people offering escrow and their terms if people would rather do that.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Anyone doing YAC Escrow? on: May 08, 2013, 12:02:12 PM
I myself have fallen pray to a scammer on here with a different coin when I was still a newbie. This is just a warning to people new to trading on forums, that if they are a jr. member, you might not want to trade unless they send first or there is an escrow service.

As far as I know, there isn't an Escrow service for YAC yet, so be careful. Obviously, as a Jr. Member I'm not really offering to become an Escrow service since people probably don't trust me. But if a Sr. or Hero member would like to step up to do this, that would be great.

8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [SOLVED] ppcoind and dumping/importing private keys on: April 07, 2013, 02:37:06 AM
I'm running the latest version of PPCoin on Windows 8 64bit but can't seem to get ppcoind.exe up and running. I made the ppcoin.conf and added an rpc user and password. I open a command prompt in the daemon directory and then type
and then it just sits there, I can't type into it. I am doing something wrong?

Also, if I type
ppcoind help
it just returns
error: couldn't connect to server

My end goal after getting ppcoind to work is to dump my private key and also import some private keys.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Also, if needed here's my ppcoin.conf: (I removed the rpc password, it's not blank in my file)

# ppcoin.conf configuration file. Lines beginning with # are comments.

# Network-related settings:

# Run on the test network instead of the production ppcoin network.

# Connect via a socks4 proxy - default none
# Accepting incoming connections
# Enable UPnP negotiation with router/firewall to accept incoming connections

##            Quick Primer on addnode vs connect            ##
##  Let's say for instance you use addnode=          ##
##  addnode will connect you to and tell you about the      ##
##    nodes connected to  In addition it will tell ##
##    the other nodes connected to it that you exist so     ##
##    they can connect to you.                              ##
##  connect will not do the above when you 'connect' to it. ##
##    It will *only* connect you to and no one else.##
##                                                          ##
##  So if you're behind a firewall, or have other problems  ##
##  finding nodes, add some using 'addnode'.                ##
##                                                          ##
##  If you want to stay private, use 'connect' to only      ##
##  connect to "trusted" nodes.                             ##
##                                                          ##
##  If you run multiple nodes on a LAN, there's no need for ##
##  all of them to open lots of connections.  Instead       ##
##  'connect' them all to one node that is port forwarded   ##
##  and has lots of connections.                            ##
##       Thanks goes to [Noodle] on Freenode.               ##

# Use as many addnode= settings as you like to connect to specific peers

# ... or use as many connect= settings as you like to connect ONLY
# to specific peers:

# Maximum number of inbound+outbound connections.

# JSON-RPC options (for controlling a running ppcoind process)

#Server mode allows Qt to accept JSON-RPC commands

# You must set rpcuser and rpcpassword to secure the JSON-RPC api

# How many seconds ppcoin will wait for a complete RPC HTTP request.
# after the HTTP connection is established.

# By default, only RPC connections from localhost are allowed.  Specify
# as many rpcallowip= settings as you like to allow connections from
# other hosts (and you may use * as a wildcard character):

# Listen for RPC connections on this TCP port:

# You can use ppcoind to send commands to ppcoind
# running on another host using this option:

# Use Secure Sockets Layer (also known as TLS or HTTPS) to communicate
# with ppcoind

# OpenSSL settings used when rpcssl=1

# Miscellaneous options

# Set gen=1 to attempt to generate ppcoins using built-in CPU mining

# Use SSE instructions to try to generate ppcoins faster with built-in CPU mining

# Pre-generate this many public/private key pairs, so wallet backups will be valid for
# both prior transactions and several dozen future transactions.

# Pay transaction fee amount per kilo-byte. Default 0.01 (1 cent)
# Minimum required 0.01 (1 cent)
9  Economy / Gambling / normal/self-destruct/baller mode on: April 06, 2013, 08:15:11 AM
Hi all.

I have decided to start my own version(s) of the chain game. I know some of you may say, "Oh no, not another one of these!" but as most of you know, these games are slow so the more of them there are, the easier it is for people like me who like these games to play multiple ones at once, instead of waiting on just one site. When I first got into bitcoins, these kind of sites were one of the first things that got me hooked because they offer a pretty safe way to make some nice little profits to the players.

The first and "normal" one of the sites is

Starting Price: .05BTC
Player Payout: 25%
Price Increase: 30%
Reset Odds: 1.75%
Time Limit: 1 Day

The second and "different" one of the sites is

This version of the site has a self-destruct mode. This means that the the reset odd is 0%, meaning there is a 100% chance of making a profit as long as someone steals it before the coin self-destructs in 4 days. I think this one could be fun because it takes the fear of a random reset out and puts it all on hoping someone else will come and steal the coin  Grin

Starting Price: .1BTC
Player Payout: 28%
Price Increase: 33%
Reset Odds: 0%
Time Limit: 4 Day

The third one of my sites is for high-rollers and ballers who like big returns on their investment

Again, the reset odd is 0%, meaning there is a 100% chance of making a 50% profit as long as someone steals it before the coin self-destructs in 3 days. This is the version where you can make huge profits if you convince someone to steal after you.

Starting Price: 1BTC
Player Payout: 50%
Price Increase: 55%
Reset Odds: 0%
Time Limit: 3 Day

Come play, if for nothing else for these cheesy gifs I made: Tongue
10  Economy / Service Discussion / Withdrawing funds from BTC-E on: April 04, 2013, 09:12:44 PM
So I'm sure some of you probably already know that BTC-E is having some issues with their email servers. The problem with that is that people like me who have security on our accounts set up to send an email confirmation when we withdraw funds can't withdraw anything. This morning, before I realized their email servers were down, I tried to pay someone by withdrawing to their address. I never got the email, but the funds were taken out of my account. So, I'm basically stuck in limbo until they get this resolved. Unless you guys know anything other than I do. I have pm'd support, sent an email and pm'd BTC-E on here. Thanks for any help or advice you have.
11  Other / Beginners & Help / Control the sent from address in litecoin on: March 26, 2013, 05:45:51 AM

sorry if this is a stupid question but I have searched and have not been able to find the answer.

I want to be able to play the dice game on this site:

It says in the description at the top:
Make sure you are using a client where you control the address your bet is sent from as the payout will be returned to the same address.

I tried to play it once only to find out that the address that I sent it from was not what they saw it was sent from, so I lost those coins.

Thanks in advance for any help! Smiley
