1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / [BUYING] BFG token on: May 25, 2021, 07:59:51 PM
As some of you may well be aware, cryto-casino Betfury is soon going to list their in-house token at an exchange so that it can be traded. There's no current estimate on the price nor on the exchange that will be used for the trading, but I'd like to secure some of the tokens before they even hit the exchange.

Having said that, I'm looking for people that would want to sell their BFG in advanced and prevent using an exchange overall. My PMs are open for offers in case any interested party does not want to trade out in the open; but be advised I'm looking for big amounts of the token.

I'll be paying in BTC
2  Economy / Scam Accusations / Betnomi scam-ish behaviour on: February 15, 2021, 07:30:38 PM
Almost a year ago, betnomi came to the forum as a "new" casino, claiming to have learnt from their past mistakes and wanting to launch-create the new best online crypto-gambling experience. In the beginning, I helped them clear their name from their past reputation, as I honestly believed it had been a very stupid but honest mistake on the owners' side. Time has gone on since then, and new things have popped up every now and then, and I've recently been experiencing some of these issues myself. That does help change perspectives.

My first incident happened on January 19th; after winning a multi-freebet from their "predictor" feature, I proceeded to withdraw the money in BTC to my personal wallet. The withdrawal took a lot of time (but OK), but once I saw it on my wallet, there were aproximately 20€ missing (on a 220€ operation aprox). Surprised to see this close to 10% reduction, I contacted the site owner on his personal telegram, as we had had some chats last year until summer aproximately. The solution presented to me was to receive the missing 20€ in my personal wallet. I did accept this, and the money arrived, but I didn't like that I had to go double checking everything and that the explanation to this was a vague "was sent manually, maybe fees deducted etc not sure or conversion issue not sure".

The incident I have just mentioned just now was resolved, but there's been a new development today, that has pretty much pissed me off a lot. For some weeks now, a couple of users and I have been under the impression betnomi withdrawals were manually done to have to send less crypto when the price fluctuated up (which has been happening a lot lately). Today, I received the free bets from predictor rounds 8&9. Some users here may be familiar with the site and this feature, and as you can see in the screenshots, the freebet value you have earnt is shown in the leaderboard:

As anyone can see on the screenshots, I "won" 41.7€ on round 9 and 16.69€ on round 8. Those 2 rounds have been credited today, and much to my surprise, both freebets were of a value lower than the expected (according to their own site) value:

So in total, I'm 0.46€ short; a truly insignificant amount, but that's not my only reason to complain here. This small shortness proves the point of them delaying payments (withdrawals and crediting users) to pay "less" when the currency pair fluctuates upwards (USD/EUR) in this case.

This behaviour alone could be shaddy enough, but the magnificent support agent I talked to did clear some other things up. I never received the freebet for the predictor round 7. I made the owner aware of this on telegram once again, as anyone can see here:

The freebet was credited but expired at the same moment, and I never received the notification email. The owner was aware of this and said "they were going to look into it". When talking to the support agent today, he has very clearly stated the following:

So after this insightful conversation with support, I was going to write to the owner over PM on telegram, but I'm tired of empty words and I want everything to be on the record here, out on the public.
Considering how vague the words I've received the last times have been, I feel like I should get all that has happened together and warn other users, because there's something shaddy happening at this site. Not only that, but I've also been scammed of so far, 16.91€; as the round 7 was never paid to me:

As a final touch, I bring a screenshot of my inbox at betnomi, where you can see that round 7 (credited on February 2nd) never received a notification message:

There's also some other things I know other forum members have experienced, I won't be talking for them, but I'd like them all to chip in and share their experiences here.

PS: This is not about the money; I couldn't care less about 0.5€ or even 18€; but having a "serious" casino miss almost 10% user funds twice is something to keep bear in mind. Apart from that, the withdrawal delays during bull runs are another interesting thing to have in mind

PS2: There will be no flag yet, but that one may depend on the overall explaining and corrective actions taken by the site
3  Bitcoin / Electrum / Mempool min fee on: February 01, 2021, 02:58:04 PM
I was getting ready to do a consolidation transaction on Electrum from a Trezor One Hardware Wallet.

As procedure says, I selected coin control from the address in question, and proceeded to max it out into a new addy with a 1 sat/byte fee (no rush order). Much to my surprise, after signing the tx, and when trying to broadcast it; I got a "mempool min fee not met" error. Transaction size is not really big; smaller than 700 bytes, and I've transacted many times using the 1sat fee in the past.

Am I missing something here?

5  Other / Meta / Bottom of the web buttons on: December 30, 2020, 12:03:52 AM
I was just playing around the website, and saw the 4 buttons at the bottom of the site; as I have many times. Only this time, I decided to actually check where they they you, as I've seen similar webs use this as a sort of verifyer of whatever they have.

The 2 ones content "only" information and the link to the 2 on the right suggest they are indeed some sort of verification (license?) tool:


I've stated a couple of times that I'm not really a tech guy, so I actually don't know what these 2 are supposed to verify, but the thing is none of them is actually working? They are working in a sense that the website loads, but one sends a forbidden error back, and the second one brings a "Sorry! This document cannot be checked." I also tried searching by url on that one, as it is suggested on the tab that is opened, and>2 Errors, 1 warning(s)

So my question are as follows:

-What are these 2 guys?
-What are they supposed to validate?
-If they are not working or outdated, why are they there?

8  Economy / Reputation / Cheating translator and incompetent manager on: December 02, 2020, 12:18:04 AM
I'm going to take a little rest from the reporting streak I've just started on a certain users' profile. I'm also going to explain the situation and use this thread to reference my negative tag, and I'm still considering adding a type 1 flag on said user. Apart from that, I'll ask that the manager in charge of this user shows up and gives some credible explanation as to why no control over this user's translation had been taken. Depending on that reply (or lack of it), a negative tag will also go for this lovely lad. Let's get started on what I currently have:

This is a reputation thread, not a scam accusation. I have lost no money interacting with this user, and if someone has to fill some scam accusation, it should be the manager or the company that has paid a user to do a job he has most certainly not done.

User Profile Link: pedrillo0

What happened: A user has been posting strangly worded sentences in the Spanish local board while being working as a translator. I had had a suspicion of translation tool usage for quite some time, but I never considered the user being as obvious as I'm going to show. Tonight, I finally felt I had the moral strength and time to start revising every post looking for machine translation tools, when out of the blue, I saw the same post posted twice, but in 2 different languages (english and spanish). Seeing them that close, and realizing everything was too similar to be a manual translation, I decided to check the most obvious tool there is: Google Translate.

Much to my surprise, every word matched; it was a 100% copy paste. Knowing this, I've started checking every post with it's english counterpart, or reference link (article) provided. Everything is a 100% match, so I'm going trough some report fest RN. I'll take a couple of random examples to ilustrate my words; but having the whole posting history, anyone can actually check, you don't even need to know the language to see it's the same.

Example 1:

Example 2:

User's post history in Spanish boards:

Concerning the manager(s):

I've decided to only list the ones from 2020, as that's the year I'm still reporting. Back in march I had some suspicions the account could have been bought, so older campaigns will be added here as I see fit

2020 manager(s):
Bounty Detective (times 11)
bitcoinmuseum (times 1) looks like this project was cancelled (scam, lmao)
Aerys2 (times 1)

I hope you are capable of providing some serious explanation here, because you are actually promoting spam and facilitating scams with such lax control measures

Yes, I'm bloody angry, and I'm going to keep on reporting; it was nice having some fresh air while wirting this though; anyone that feels like joining to the report fest, is more than welcome

10  Other / Meta / [PROPOSAL] Partial reset of airdropped merits on: November 30, 2020, 12:08:38 PM
I apologize in advance if this has been discussed before, but I couldn't find any thread using the native forum search function.

Now, regarding the proposal:

In the last month I've investigated some accounts under the premise of them being bought and/or hacked accounts, and realized that most of the accounts follow some pattern. Most of them had been inactive for some time, had a password reset in 2017 and have very little earnt merit (if any).

Considering these parameters, I believe an airdropped merit reset for accounts that have earnt a total of zero (0) merits could benefit the community as a whole, as it would render most of these sold accounts useless. These accounts are mostly used for bounties or scams, so I think this is a reasonable request.

One may argue that it's an unfair meassure, but the same way some Hero accounts were made Legendary during the merit system introduction, there could be a case by case study upon request. Still, not having earnt a single merit in the couple of years the system has been in place.... kind of says a lot about the posting quality overall. I'd even go further and do a complete reset of all airdropped merits, but that'd get me in some muddy waters which I see no reason to dive in (yet).

Having said this, I'm waiting to hear some opinnions on the matter; this is a discussion forum after all, and see if this can be taken into consideration by the forum administration
11  Local / Primeros pasos y ayuda / Vincula tu cuenta a una dirección on: November 28, 2020, 10:30:09 PM
Pensando en el hilo original en inglés, Stake your Bitcoin address here, y el quebradero de cabeza que me ha supuesto para pensar en como *sti*s traducirlo, os traigo la exactamente misma idea, con el exacto mismo fin.

El objetivo del hilo es sencillo: publicas un mensaje firmado desde una dirección tuya, y desde ese momento se presupone que estás en posesión de las claves privadas; por lo que en caso de tener que recuperar la cuenta, o demostrar la pertenencia de la misma, se puede utilizar cualquier mensaje de esa dirección.

He supuesto que los usuarios que normalmente no se aventuran a indagar por Meta no serían conocedores de esto, y también es cierto que es más sencillo buscar el post de uno mismo en un hilo local que en las 500+ páginas del hilo en inglés. Os adjunto el formato y un par de pruebas para que podais verificar.

Notas: Las direcciones Legacy (1) se pueden verificar desde cualquier web/monedero; pero no ocurre lo mismo con Segwit. Al no haber un protocolo establecido, suele ser necesario utilizar el mismo monedero usado para firmar que para verificar.

12  Economy / Reputation / Myfe -- Hacked account? on: November 21, 2020, 08:53:33 PM
Earlier today, I came accross this post from Myfe:

Is it possible to create a PGP Signature from any wallet address?

I appreciate the Kleopatra tutorial, but I don't use Kloepatra and I shouldn't have to use a new wallet simply to sign my wallet address...right?


The username sounded familiar, so after some scrolling, I remembered that he had been a representative for It surprised me a bit that a former representative from a crypto company mixed such concepts, but that's no crime and definately no proof, but I decided to do some digging just in case, and boy did I find something:

First of all, this 2 accounts are connected:


Where did I find the connection? In these 2 different addresses:



This address was used to make signature campaign applications by both users; last time it was used by each profile:

Myfe January 18, 2020
HabBear January 17, 2020


This one was a little dirty slippery bitch; it was ONLY used by Myfe to make an application to the chipmixer campaign here. But the address had 0.5BTC, and hadn't been used before in the forum (not something odd, but let's check just in case...). Blockchair showed that that address had only received funds from the address used by.... Chipmixer! And his application had been rejected; so checking the spreadsheet, I found that from rounds 39 to 99, Hubbear used that same address.

The application post from Myfe was made while Hubbear was enrolled (and using that same address, lol). Darkstar_ would most likely have noticed that, but this is already an attempt to cheat the campaign.

Post quality hasn't declined, but Hubbear does have a fluent/correct english, so it'd most certainly be something doable.

What I think happened
I believe that Myfe left the forum some years ago, and after being abandoned, it was hacked. User Hubbear bought that account in an attempt to cheat in the chipmixer campaign, because the first post after the inactivity was that application. Both users did also wake up in January, 2020; both to join signature campaigns. It could also be that both accounts are hacked and bought, but since only one of them had its password reset; I don't think that's the case
13  Other / Meta / Suspicious link removed on: November 21, 2020, 05:06:28 PM
During the lsat wave of spam bots, I've actually payed some attention to the links provided, and saw that some of them had been redacted.

Example 1
Example 2 (the most visual one)

There's a couple more I could bring, but I don't really feel like digging my report history, and these two were rather recent.

Now, for what I remember on other forums, suspicious links are hand-removed; there's no automated mechanism to redact them. So, is Bitcointalk any different? And if it's not... does a mod really look at that post, decide to redact a few of the links instead of straight trashing it?

I'm asking because I find this last one part hard to believe, but if there's some automated system to delete these links, under what premises does it work? Manual black/white-listed links?

Bist du neu im Kryptowährungsbereich?
Hast du bereits Erfahrung mit BTC, aber es ist dein erstes Mal in diesem Forum?
Bist du vielleicht schon länger hier, aber möchtest dich trotzdem vorstellen?

Wie auch immer. Alle sind hier herzlich willkommen.

Du kannst hier eine kleine Vorstellung schreiben, so dass wir dich kennen lernen können!

Tolle Idee von 1miau; kann man der link direkt in der quote klicken; oder hier
Vielleicht kann man den Faden Anfängerthread - Verlinkungen wichtiger Themen und Information im OP mit aufnehmen, dass neue Nutzer gleich die wichtigsten Informationen finden, wenn sie neu im Forum sind und noch nicht wissen, wo sie suchen sollen.

Original OP:

Erst, wurde ich mich entschuldigen für mein schlechtes Deutsch. Ich habe kein machine translation gemacht; aber ein Forum-post mit ein Wörtewuch geschreiben ist kein Witz.

Ich denke dass einige von ihnen mihr von Meta oder ein einiges Sektion kennt; weil ich normalerweisser da oder in der Spanisch lokal poste. Ich habe Deutsch in der Gymnasium für 6 Jahren "gelernt", aber seit ich in der Uni bin, habe ich kein Deutsch gresprochen; und ich mochte wieder ein bischen mehr treiben. Für ein par Wochen habe ich dieser Deutsche forum, und obwohl ich ein bischen schüchtern bien wenn ich ein Sprache schlechte weiss; dachte ich mir "Für eine Sprache lernen, muss man dieser Sprache benutzen", so hier bin ich!

PS: In der Spanische lokal, haben wir ein Stickie für die neues Leute wo sie können sie ihnen introduzieren. Habe ich keine ähnliche thread gefindet, so ich habe dieser neues thread schäffen.

PSS: I'm sorry if this is a complete rubbish text that cannot be understood; I have had 0 contact with german for over 4 years and I did indeed suffer writing this lines...
16  Economy / Reputation / Thanasis -- Hacked account? on: November 10, 2020, 11:56:56 PM
After reading the last post from the Pharmacist on the "Arcas -- bought account?" thread, I tought: Well, I do indeed have shitload time to waste, so why don't I do a quick check on some random profiles I come accross and if something seems off, I may dig a bit deeper to see if there's something there? And earlier than expected, I already have my first candidate

Forum Hero Member Thanasis. I found this profile rather randomly, as he replied to the 777 signature campaign with one of those asslicking "thank you for accepting me sir" post. Side note; I'm not saying that thanking the campaign manager is a bad thing; but there are ways of doing it; I don't want to sound ungrateful. After a couple of things that raised some minor flags, I found the following:

This account was most likely hacked and then sold during the months of September/October 2017. From the post history, there's no reason or indication that leads me to believe that the user sold the account willingly; but that's pure speculation.

-BPIP doesn't show any password/email change at that time, but I'm not sure how far back the records go (@suchmoon I'd appreciate a little clarification there; altough I'll try to find that as soon as I finish this thread).

The user before October 2017
  • This user did most of his posting in a thread he himself had created, called Thanasis Collection Pack there, he sold some bots he had programmed and used to answer to doubts that arose on the thread.
  • Spoke in a native or at least really good english
  • There's no signature campaign application or a single post made on the service board
  • 2 Bitcoin addresses mentioned in the bot selling thread: 3NMF6K93oFEzkN74gfHbPkyDs26mL4hbHa and 13j4F6LmXsb3mth3DZMpe3QmpyXtWKKoP1

The user after October 2017 (included)
  • Starts posting on spam boards
  • Never replies to his bot selling thread again
  • English turns form good to broken
  • Starts applying to signature campaigns
  • Starts posting with "sir" in the sentences

As with the other thread; most of this content, call it proof or evidence if you want to, is highly subjective. A user changing posting habits or changin the way they talk is not a flag per se, and it's something that can happen organically. But when you look paying a bit of attention to some things, do stand up.

If anyone feels like checking; the posting changes happen on post 2470; post history page 124.

I will not jump into conclusions too fast and start tagging accounts because my gut is telling me they are using a sold/hacked account; but this is a forum, and after some discussion, and if the account involved doesn't come forward, it will most likely be the right thing to do.

17  Economy / Reputation / Arcas -- Bought account? on: November 10, 2020, 12:35:17 AM
Since I've kept bumping into this troll/moron that is constantly derailing threads in a small attempt for attention, I've decided to do some digging, to try to get the few people that left positive feedbacks at least change it to neutral so that it doesn't "legitimate" the account in the eyes of the untrained, and to try to find the connection between this bought account and any banned one, proving a ban evasion and until the clown gets another account to derail threads with, get rid of him. Let's see what I've found so far:

User profile

-There are posting gaps between:
  • October 05, 2019 to February 11, 2020
  • October 22, 2018 to October 02, 2019
  • April 27, 2016 to March 10, 2017

Judging (and now this is all pure speculation), we can assume that the account changed hands at least one time; and most likely twice.

The first change took place between the 2016-2017 interval. Reasons coming right here:

Before 2016
This user was mostly active in:
  • Wall Observer
  • Selling goods (a lot of computer hardware)
  • Never posted in Indonesia board
  • Had only posted a few times in the Altcoin boards (2014 last)
  • Shipping of his products were either calculated to the US or restricted to the US
  • Used the 1ArcasN3xcUHyZraWJpgrq7AkzKBHncmNf addy
  • Posted like a regular person and seemed to mind their own business

When the user started posting again in 2017:
  • Suddenly spoke a lot of Indonesian
  • Posted a lot in altcoin sections, mostly Indonesian local ones
  • No activity in the WO thread
  • Nothing new listed for sale in the Goods boards
  • Pyramid quotes

These alone may be enough for most users, some may be more intuition than anything, but when you put them together, they kind of make you think. And after that, the account is active until the 5th of October 2019, day in which the last post in Indonesian is made.

On the next and last period:
  • Account starts posting in spam sections
  • Starts speaking in a very broken english
  • Starts posting a lot in the gambling board on September 2020
  • At the end of September a hostile attitude towards every casino begins

Somewhere mid-September, however, there's a sudden improvement from a very broken english to the one a non-native would use; but that may be a simple assumption. It could mean a third change of hands, altough I'm not that confident about it.

What we have so far:

The account changed hands at least once in the interval between 2016 and 2017. Knowing that, any feedback prior to 2017 should be revoked, to prevent any misleading positives on a person that is no longer behind the account.
Unless a signed message from 1ArcasN3xcUHyZraWJpgrq7AkzKBHncmNf is provided, it's safe to assume that this account has been either hacked or sold, so people please, act accordingly.

Besides these little things, I couldn't actually find any links between an already banned account and this specific account; but if anyone with better investigation skills wants to give it a try, feel free and welcome to do so.

And yes, I know that the troll must not be fed, but I'm a bit fed up about seeing threads getting derailed; and it's not really up to hitting the ignore button on my end, because he keeps on getting replies

Acaba de casi darme un derrame al darme cuenta de que si bien hay un hilo para el bot de giammangiato el bot más reciente creado por Tryninja no tiene ni una mísera mención en nuestro Local... Añado que casi me da el derrame porque traduje en su momento cuando salio todas las líneas del bot para hacerlo más accesible, pero por alguna extraña razón nunca llegué a publicitar ni el bot ni mi traducción tan bonita y perfecta.

Actualmente no hay traducción del bot disponible, pero puedo asegurar que existir, ha existido. Es bastante probable que esta característica se vuelva a establecer en un futuro.

19  Economy / Scam Accusations / Impersonator of betnomi casino on: November 03, 2020, 08:41:11 PM
A couple of hours ago I noticed this thread had been created in the Games and Rounds section. (Unedited link)

As it look rather unprofessional, I contacted the site admin and he confirmed that the promotion advertised had nothing to do with them. Betnomi has already posted in the thread to confirm that they have not authorized said promotion, but this thread is meant to be the reference link for the type 1 flag; because impersonating or faking a casino operator in a promotion is, at least for me, is a high risk behaviour for anyone dealing with said account.

I am also aware that the account is a disposable one, but still. I have not created this thread before because I was away from home, and it's rather difficult to create such a thread on the phone. Also, I was not sure about this belonging to scam accusations or reputation, so if you feel like I should move it, please, kindly indicate so

20  Local / Esquina Libre / [Desafio] Y un poco de reflexión personal on: November 02, 2020, 07:20:02 PM
Como cualquiera que se meta en mi perfil puede ver, hace ya más 4 años que llegue a este foro. He ido contando parte de mi historia por distintos sitios, y algunos sabrán más detalles que el resto; pero eso no es lo importante en este momento. No obstante, de haber algun grado de interes, puedo coger y machacar el teclado para exprimir un poco ese recorrido durante los años.

Cabe destacar que no he sido el usuario más activo, ni mucho menos; he tenido temporadas muy erráticas en las que desaparecia completamente para luego volver con las pilas recargadas (sigo haciendolo, vaya), pero he de decir que este foro ha sido un casi constante en mi vida estos años. Sin embargo, viendo como ha avanzado este 2020, sabiendo los motivos por los que decidi volver a voler al foro y los logros que he obtenido a nivel personal, me hacen querer subir el listón un poquito más.

Gracias a los datos historicos que se pueden sacar tanto de la web de LoyceV o del merit dashboard de DdmrDdmr, se que empecé el año con 156 unidades de mérito en el foro, con un rango de Full Member y una actividad.... eso ya es más dificil de sacar. Gracias (supongo?) a la pandemia y el consecuente encierro en casa, teniendo muchisimo tiempo libre, decidí volver al foro y estar aquí; porque si, porque me gustaba estar, sin mayores complicaciones ni necesidades. En el consiguiente periodo temporal de entre los meses de marzo y junio (3 meses) conseguí amasar la sorprendente cantidad de 280 méritos, colocandome con 436 méritos antes de tomarme un descanso forzoso del foro, causado principalmente por el nuevo trabajo y el comienzo del curso. Y ahora nos ponemos a finales de octubre, cuando vuelvo a volver a volver (me encanta jugar con los verbos), y en tan solo 11 días he recaudado la impresionante cantidad de 82 nuevos méritos, situandome en los 518 actuales.

A donde pretendo llegar con esto? A ninguna parte en realidad; simplemente me han entrado ganas de escribir y me he puesto a ello. Eso si, un poco de algo que aprender si que hay aquí. A nivel personal, no me considero un poster excepcionalmente bueno, no tengo publicaciones que puedas decir "Oh vaya, vaya currazo y calidad" y tengo conocimientos técnicos más bien limitados. Estoy aqui simplemente por diversion, porque me gusta estar aquí, y porque me gusta todo lo relacionado con el Bitcoin y la tecnología blockchain (estoy planteandome hacer el tfg sobre una de sus muchas aplicaciones). Y con esto llegamos a la parte del mensaje a los nuevos usuarios que nos pueden venir llegando... Si has leido semejante turra, ten esto presente: si yo he podido ir subiendo de rango en el foro, tu tambien puedes. Lo unico que no tienes que tener es prisa, todo llegara a su debido momento, y por favor, si vas a publicar cosas, hazlo de manera organica; no forzada. Se ve mucho cuando una persona está formando parte de una discusión o bien con el fin de aprender o ayudar y cuando alguien está ahí con el encefalograma plano.

Y si ya habeis llegado hasta aquí, os estareis preguntando a ver donde está ese desafio que el título menciona. Pues bueno. Hoy estamos a 2 de noviembre de 2020 y tengo una actividad en el foro de 714 con 518 méritos. Me pongo como objetivo personal intentar conseguir los 1000 méritos antes que los 775 puntos de actividad que me desbloquearían (teoricamente) el rango de legendario. ¿Es eso posible? Imposible no, facil tampoco; pero si no no seria un desafio....

Para echar unos número rápidos teoricos puros. Si cuento la actividad como 728 (no se que día se actualizaba, asique redondeamos hacia arriba para calcular), me faltarían 47 unidades de actividad para conseguir esta hazaña, contando cada uno de esos 47 puntos como un día, 10.25 méritos/día. Como he dicho antes, no imposible, pero casi. Además, como las fechas se más o menos sobreponen, en caso de no lograrlo, me pongo como límite hasta fin de año (31 de diciembre) para alcanzar esa cima. Una especie de premio de consolación.

Y dicho todo esto; se aceptan apuestas y ¡que empiecen los juegos!

Me parece obvio, pero no quiero que nadie piense que ahora como quiero subir de rango me voy a poner a vomitar posts por medio foro. Pretendo obtener esto de manera puramente orgánica, sin modificar mis hábitos de publicación y si bien puede que explore alguna sección, no tengo intención de quedarme si la cosa no va conmigo
