This is an attempt to steal people's keys and seeds.
Form link which doesn't seem to be loading.
Then it redirects to this
2  Other / Beginners & Help / [Information] Ancient Cryptography on: September 18, 2020, 05:12:56 PM
I’ve been interested in reading about cryptocurrency and want to learn cryptography but it’s too complicated for me to learn the cryptography especially the algorithms and the other terms that is unfamiliar for me, so I started in the beginning of cryptography which is the ancient times and it’s very interesting and very easy to understand, so I just want to share the things that I discover and it might interest the newbies and other members to read and learn about cryptography.

  • The word cryptography is comes from two Greek words, “kryptos” which means hidden and “graphien” which means writing.
  • During ancient times cryptography is commonly associated with the word encryption or a method of protecting information through the use of codes or ciphers, or it is a process of converting a normal letters, texts, or numbers into an unintelligible text, figures, images  and something that only the writer and receiver should understand, which is commonly used in communications in war during ancient times.
  • The process where an ordinary plain text is converted to cipher text is known as encryption while the process of conversion of cipher text to plain text this is known as decryption.

There are many primitive and other techniques that had been used by different civilizations.

1. The Caesar Shift Cipher

  • This cipher was named in honor of Julius Caesar, this method was effective during the times of war not only because the text was encrypted but the enemies of Rome are also illiterate, and only after the fall of Rome it is decrypted through the analysis of Al-Kindi.
  • The concept is the simplest and most widely-known encryption techniques which uses monoalphabetic substitution. It is a substitution cipher with a shift of 3 either to left or right in the alphabet.
Cipher using right rotation: DEFGHIJkLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZABC
Cipher using left rotation: XYZABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVW

Example: (With a shift of +3)
Plain Text:
We're no strangers to love
You know the rules and so do I
Cipher Text:
Tb'ob kl pqoxkdbop ql ilsb
Vlr hklt qeb oribp xka pl al F

  • There is also another version of it the Augustus Cipher, that is made by his nephew Augustus but with a shift of 1 only.

Example: (With a shift of -1)
Plain Text:
A full commitment's what I'm thinking of
You wouldn't get this from any other guy
Cipher Text:
Z etkk bnllhsldms'r vgzs H'l sghmjhmf ne
Xnt vntkcm's fds sghr eqnl zmx nsgdq ftx

2. Alberti-Vigenere Cipher

  • This one is also interesting , using a polyalphabetic substitution which the alphabets is embedded within a 2 movable concentric disk that is attached by a pin. The large one is called Stabilis which is fixed or stationary and the Mobilis which is the smaller one and the movable disk. (the characters in mobilis may vary)
Mobilis: (random characters)
  • Each disk consists of 24 equal cells he Stabilis consist of uppercase letter and 4 numbers while the Mobilis consists of lowercase letters and a special character.

Example:(with Stabilis: ABCDEFGILMNOPQRSTVXZ1234 & Mobilis: c&bmdgpfznjyutoskerlhaiw)
Plain Text:
I just wanna tell you how Im feeling
Gotta make you understand
Cipher Text:
1 munp ufbhs petu ccg fzk Ia cpmunmi
Gzpbf hzjj yzg &laduztsbe

3. Scytale

  • The scytale was first used in Ancient Greece by the Spartans for secret communication between the war commanders, it is consisted of a stretched leather which has characters written on It seemed like a meaningless sequence of characters but when the stretch of leather is winded around a piece of wood with the correct diameter, an encoded message can be read.
  • may consist of: ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz

Example: (7 turns)
Plain Text:
Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Cipher Text:
Nnyva denoe lova ure we
gugtn ripoy gvN noo eenu
| N | e | v | e | r | g | o |
| n | n | a | g | i | v | e |
| y | o | u | u | p | N | e |
| v | e | r | g | o | n | n |
| a | l | e | t | y | o | u |
| d | o | w | n |   |   |   |

4.The Polybius Square

  • The Polybius Square is an ancient Greek invention, discovered by a scholar named Polybius. For the Greek alphabet of 24 letters, it consisted of a 5 by 5 grid where each square of the grid was filled by a single letter. In the English Alphabet of 26 letters, we have one too many letters. To get round this we combine two letters, traditionally "i" and "j".
  • It is also possible to combine other pairs, such as "v" and "u". Another alternative to the Polybius Square for english is to include the digits 0-9, so we have 36 characters. It is also possible to just remove one of the letter such as J,VW,Q and Z or make a mixed square.
  • It's either you will use the common 5x5 grid with the 25 Alphabets or you can increase the grid and used mixed square, This is also very simple let's use the figure on the right and let's encrypt the word "Bitcointalk" you just gonna follow the number grid so it should be 2142443143423344111352

[b]Example (Let's use the figure above but without the J)[/b]
Plain Text:
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Cipher Text:
3315511542 2234333311 424533 114234453314 113314 1415431542 44543445
3315511542 2234333311 32112515 543445 134254

5. Pigpen Cipher

  • The Pigpen Cipher is another example of a substitution cipher, but rather than replacing each letter with another letter, the letters are replaced by symbols.It used mainly by the mason but the origins of the characters that is used is unknown. Most notoriously, it was the cipher of choice for use by the Freemasons, a secret society in the 18th Century. In fact, they used it so much, that it is often referred to as the Freemasons Cipher. However, it was not exclusively used by them, with Union prisoners in Confederate camps using it to communicate in the American Civil War.

Example: (Standard)
Plain Text:
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

4  Other / Politics & Society / [FACTS] The Hacker Group Known as Anonymous on: May 31, 2020, 06:44:59 PM
Since most people don’t know (or don’t remember) the hacker group anonymous, here’s a thread because they’re a pretty big fucking deal.
So basically anonymous started on 4chan back in 2003. the whole point was to gather hackers all over the world to form a digital “hive”. they’re usually distinguished by wearing guy fawkes masks. Eventually it got to the point where, in 2012, TIME declared they were one of the "100 most influential people" in the world. coincidentally, they were also declared a national security threat because they deadass would not stop hacking american government servers LMAOOOO.

For example, remember back in 2008 when the church of scientology was gaining an insane amount of supporters and celebrity endorsements (tom cruise, john travolta, etc)? where’d they go? turns out anonymous singlehandedly ended the majority of the moment due to ddos attacks, email spams, prank calls, etc) normally this wouldn’t have been a problem but the fact that the group was SO huge meant that the church was getting millions of troll calls a day until eventually nobody took the church of scientology serious anymore bc they couldn’t operate at all.
There was also the “Operation Payback”. it was so fun to watch because they targeted so many important govt branches (Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft, the U.S. Copyright Office, etc) the total downtime of all these attacks was estimated to be around 537.55 hours.Operation Payback eventually led to “Operation Avenge Assange", and Anons issued a press release declaring PayPal a target. attacks brought down paypl for an hour on dec 8 and another brief period on dec 9. this may not seem like a long time that meant MILLIONS of dollars lost.
Beginning in january 2011, anons took a number of actions known initially as “Operation Tunisia” in support of Arab Spring movements. Tflow created a script that Tunisians could use to protect their web browsers from government surveillance. Not only that, but they also target multiple businesses/corporations accused of homophobia. in december 2012, anons published the names, phone numbers, and e-mail and home addresses of westboro church members and brought down GodHatesF***.com with a DDoS attack.
In august 2012, anons hacked the site of Ugandan Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi in retaliation for the Parliament of Uganda's consideration of an anti-homosexuality law permitting capital punishment (he tried to make sentences of 14 years to life if you were caught being gay).

OHHH! they also declared war and constantly hacked sony in retaliation for them trying to sue George Hotz (the first guy to jailbreak an iphone, rumored to be an anon). this was the biggest gaming security breach EVER and left weeks without access to online servers.

5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Happy Bitcoin Pizza Day on: May 22, 2020, 11:42:41 AM
This story might have been posted here before, but today's make another year.
Today marks the 10th anniversary of BitcoinPizzaDay.

On this day ten years ago Laszlo Hanyecz bought two pizzas for 10,000 $BTC.

Here's a thread of Bitcoin Pizza Day facts you might not know:
The fee paid for this famous transaction was huge by today's standards: 0.99 BTC! Today that's worth $9050.

A common misconception is that 10,000 BTC bought one pizza. It actually bought two! 🍕🍕

The two pizzas were bought from @PapaJohns.

The transaction wasn't direct. Laszlo sent the 10,000 $BTC to a fellow Bitcointalk forum user who then paid for the pizza to be sent to Laszlo with fiat.

At that time 10,000 BTC was worth ~$41. Bitcoin has increased in price by around 23,000x since then.

You can still see pictures of the famous pizzas here:

Laszlo didn’t just complete this deal once. It was an open offer and seemingly occurred many times.

6  Other / Off-topic / [Information] Privacy and Data Broker on: April 15, 2020, 05:40:15 PM
    In this modern world, it is very easy to gather and have information about someone and something just by looking at the internet and different social media site and search engines, although not anyone doesn't want to disclose their information and remain private and anonymous.
    Nowadays data is often compared to oil because of it's value and importance to the companies. There are some companies that need and requires your data information like social media sites and even exchanges that requires KYC gathers your information they commonly requires:
  • Full Name
  • Address
  • Mobile or Telephone Number
  • Email Address
  • Age and Gender
  • Occupation
  • Citizenship

Data Broker
- According to different definitions, a Data Broker can be a person or a  business that accumulates and gathers pieces of information of the consumers from different sources on the internet, after that, they process the data and sells it to other data brokers and companies or they buy it themselves. [they commonly gather through different Internet service providers, credit card issuers, mobile phone companies, banks, pharmacies, grocery stores and Social Media Sites like Facebook.]
-They commonly gather the data anonymously and the consumer might not know it unknowingly that their data is being collected and used by someone.
-To others, the data are nonsense and doesn't worth a glance and interest but to the data brokers they are worth something and a source of income. and you might not know that they are collecting data from you, although it seems like it's not that dangerous but it collects your personal data and who knows


Data Breach
-According to Wikipedia, A data breach is the intentional or unintentional release of secure or private/confidential information to an untrusted environment. Other terms for this phenomenon include unintentional information disclosure, data leak, information leakage and also data spill. Even the information that you input in different companies is not safe with them if their site has been hacked.

How to protect yourself from data brokers

1. Delete Cookies and Browsing History
-Maybe the simplest thing to do is to delete your cookies and your browsing history in your browser you can also delete the trackers in your website or maybe you can use a different type of browser that is secured but safe and trusted. There is also an option in the settings that lets you block third-party cookies. but this will not 100% protect you from them.

2. Log Out of Social Media Sites While You Browse the Web
-Always log-out your social media sites and don't save your passwords in your browser.
3. Skip Store Loyalty Cards
Data brokers collect information from the real world too, Hans says. It’s impossible to limit brokers’ access to some kinds of personal information, like public records. But if privacy is really important to you, decline offers for store loyalty cards–a major way retailers gather information about your buying habits. The downside? You may miss out on discounts.
4. Employ Advanced Online Tools
-You can use different privacy apps like Vpn and different search engines that do not collect your date searches like duck duck go and Hide and search.
5. Be selective with your data
-Don't use your emails in the sites you don't commonly know and sometimes don't subscribe to newsletter because they might know what your interest is about.
6. Don’t share everything
-Don't share everything in your social media on where are you located, the disease you have, what your interest is about and other things that are unnecessary that the website doesn't need

My Suggestion on How to Avoid This
Don't use your main email address when filling airdrops so that your email address won't be their target.
Avoid clicking any links in your in your inbox without proper research. Don't fall for scams because of the little penny they promised you.

What bothers me right now is
- What if the winner decides to dump right away?
- Why ask for a 200,000$ deposit?
- Does the proceed go to people after the auction?
- Why not sell an asset worth 40mln dollars at current price and use the money to pay depts?
12  Other / Beginners & Help / [Information and Guide] How to pay with Bitcoin and where to use it. on: December 02, 2019, 07:12:08 AM
What is Bitcoin?
-According to Wikipedia Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency. It is a decentralized digital currency without a central bank or single administrator that can be sent from user to user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without the need for intermediaries.

How does it works?
-Based on Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority or banks; managing transactions and the issuing of bitcoins is carried out collectively by the network. Bitcoin is open-source; its design is public, nobody owns or controls Bitcoin and everyone can take part. Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment system.

Here are the questions that this topic will answer:
  • How can I use it?
  • Can I buy things with it?
  • Are there any stores that accept it?
  • How many countries accept bitcoin as payment?

There is a survey that shows what is the most popular payment method and it's kinda interesting because I saw that someone uses Cryptocurrency as a method of payment. The Kaspersky Lab Global IT Security Risks Survey 2018 is a study into the state of consumer attitudes towards their money and financial security online.

Kaspersky surveyed 12,448 consumers in 22 different countries.

We all know that there is someone that uses bitcoin to buy a pizza but it's not direct and uses third party to order the pizza but now just look where the crypto has come, we can now buy stuffs with cryptocurrency that we have but mostly they only accept bitcoin.

Bitcoin is very easy to use and for me, it's very accessible and easy to buy but it's costly
  • Set Up your Bitcoin Wallet- This is where we should store the bitcoin, but there are many types so choose an appropriate wallet.
  • Purchase and Transfer Bitcoin to your Wallet-There are some wallets that you can convert cash directly which is very convenient, and there are exchanges where you can trade bitcoin.
  • Trade using your wallet- And lastly you can use and transfer the bitcoin in your wallet.

Bitcoin as a method of Payment

-User identity protection
-No third-party intervention
-Low transaction fees, compared to other payment methods which are 2% or 3%.
-Quick and safe international payments
-Lower fraud risks for buyers, because there is signature verification in bitcoin and it's a direct peer to peer transaction.
-It's very accessible and very easy to use especially when using a mobile wallet.

-Susceptible to High Price Volatility
-No Chargebacks or Refunds

What can I purchase with Bitcoin and where?

There are hundreds and thousands of stores and retailers from around the world that accepts bitcoin as a payment and there are sites that help you and allows you to purchase different products with it. or the Bitcoin Products Search Engine.

-Spendabit (
-Spendbitcoins (

More list

-How many countries accept bitcoin as payment?

Coinmap shows the availability of the stores that accept bitcoin in every country we can see Europe and America has the most stores that accept bitcoin.

How can I pay with Bitcoin?
-Online Purchase
-Peer to Peer Purchase
-Point of Sale purchase using Bitcoin Visa Prepaid Card
-Qr Code
13  Other / Beginners & Help / [Tips and Information] Privacy and How to Stay Anonymous Online on: November 14, 2019, 02:58:08 PM
We all know the importance of privacy, especially now in the digital world people share more information in their social media accounts every each of us can access and gather some information about someone or something,  in just a click of your mouse even though you don't know a thing about hacking, what most if the person that has knowledge in hacking gathers your information. Do you still consider yourself browsing anonymously on the web because maybe there's a person tracking every move you make and has every information you have?

Here are some Apps or Tools that can help you to stay anonymous.

IP Address

-According to Wikipedia "IP Address is an Internet Protocol address is a numerical label assigned to each device connected to a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication. An IP address serves two main functions: host or network interface identification and location addressing."
-Some of us don't know the importance of IP Address but you should be aware of it, Your IP Address gives the website that you visit and people that you have connected with online, It gives them the ability to trace that IP address back towards you if they wanted to. or to be exact they will know your location on the map.

-According to howtogeek "A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, allows you to create a secure connection to another network over the Internet. VPNs can be used to access region-restricted websites, shield your browsing activity from prying eyes on public Wi-Fi, and more."
-According to howtogeek "a VPN connects your PC, smartphone, or tablet to another computer (called a server) somewhere on the internet, and allows you to browse the internet using that computer’s internet connection. So if that server is in a different country, it will appear as if you are coming from that country, and you can potentially access things that you couldn’t normally."

Here are some Apps and Tips that I gather that will help you to keep your privacy secured.


1.Browse in private or in Incognito Mode
-Incognito mode is not only for NSFW stuff and not only to hide your history but it also helps in preventing websites save cookies and disable the extensions that might steal your information.

2. Avoid Search Engines Like (Google, Yahoo and Bing)
Google, Bing, and Yahoo might be the three most popular search engines, but these search engines also collect the most data about you in order to serve relevant ads and personalize services. Especially when logged in with your account, these search engines can collect your name, email address, birthday, gender, and phone number and other personal informations . Asides from that, Google and Bing can also collect important data such as device location, device information, IP address, and cookie data, That can violate your privacy.

3. Use anonymous email and communication
-You can use other emails or dummy emails. You can use these emails if you don't want others to know that is you, don't use emails that may contain your real name, by these simple tips you can stay slightly anonymous online.
-And also avoid clicking on emails that you don't recognize or mostly spams, these spam emails might contain phishing sites that can gather your information such as name, birthday, credit card information, and other personal information.

4. Hide your IP address using Proxies and VPNs

    - "Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. It also enables software developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features. Tor provides the foundation for a range of applications that allow organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy."
    -According to J.M. Porup "The Tor Browser is a web browser that anonymizes your web traffic using the Tor network, making it easy to protect your identity online."
  • DuckDuckGo(

    -According to Wikipedia "DuckDuckGo is an internet search engine that emphasizes protecting searchers' privacy and avoiding the filter bubble of personalized search results. DuckDuckGo distinguishes itself from other search engines by not profiling its users and by showing all users the same search results for a given search term."
    -This is an awesome alternative for Google, Bing and Yahoo and it doesn't collect your data, provides privacy and gives safe searching.
  • TunnelBear(

    -According to TunnelBear "TunnelBear is the world's easiest to use VPN (virtual private network) for both consumers and teams. ... TunnelBear can be used to protect you and your privacy, hide your real IP address, bypass internet censorship, and to experience the internet as people in other countries experience it."
    -The configuration of tunnelbear is idiot proof and it's very simple, and it can be used on any browser. It's probably the most accessible VPN tool there is and even paid or free version it's very accessible and has many features.
  • Freenet(

    -According to Wikipedia "Freenet is a peer-to-peer platform for censorship-resistant communication. It uses a decentralized distributed data store to keep and deliver information and has a suite of free software for publishing and communicating on the Web without fear of censorship."
  • I2P(

    -According to Wikipedia "The Invisible Internet Project is an anonymous network layer that allows for censorship-resistant, peer to peer communication. Anonymous connections are achieved by encrypting the user's traffic, and sending it through a volunteer-run network of roughly 55,000 computers distributed around the world."

15  Economy / Scam Accusations / Cloud Token Ponzi Scheme on: November 10, 2019, 04:59:17 PM
So, I saw this thread about cloud token some days ago, and they appear to be a ponzi scam. Cloud Token Wallet promises 6-15% monthly on investment by trading investors funds on an automated trading bot. I don't know if a similar thread has been created concerning this, but here are some red flag about why you should not try to store your funds there.
- You are required to sign up with a sponsor code when creating the wallet. You're given mnemonic phrase( which I think is only for recovery process within the wallet) and some 16 digits login ID.
- Bitcoin transaction takes long to appear on cloud token wallet
- You need to have some CTO in your wallet (which can only be gotten by investing) in order to send crypto out. Imagine saving funds on the wallet. Transaction fee is also ridiculous.
 image loading... <br /> 
- You can't export your private keys and the only private key you are given is for the ETH wallet and it isn't safe.
- Matching bonus and ranking system bonus is also ridiculous. 100% on first level.

- No proof for increase in CTO price.

In conclusion, Cloud Token Wallet appears to be an online wallet and a pure ponzi scheme. Forget about the events they have organised or the partnership they have secured, they will exit scam once new funds are not coming in.

I am writing to inform you all about a scam telegram channel that always share fake exchange airdrop of same pattern to you.
I joined Airdrop Partnership Channel and discovered that they share fake exchange airdrop that organises fake giveaways like “send 0.5 ETH to receive 5 ETH instantly”.
So I decided to join one of Airdrops on the channel, I joined Bittrex Candy Bot . I submitted my ETH address and wrong email address and everything. I joined both group and channel as requested by the bot and here's is the first red flag.
1. Pinned message is about XRP Giveaway with a fake Bittrex domain.

2. I used the search button and discovered that the group was just created this month.
Tap on search.


Same thing with other ongoing airdrops there like HITBTC airdrop and others too.  This channel has been promoting fake airdrops and they are of same pattern. I'm posting this for awareness so that no one else will fall for this scam. I've reported them and you should do the same too.

PS: Sorry for bad English.

Edit: if you know of any telegram group or channel like this one, comment them below and I'll add them to the list.

19  Local / Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian) / [Tutorial] Cara Archive Website dan Internet on: May 26, 2019, 12:12:55 AM
Latar Belakang

-Kenangan masa lalu sering terhapus karena update-nya sebuah website ke tampilan terkini.
-Website Bitcointalk juga ada kalanya thread dan post dihapus/edit/ubah oleh Mod atau pun OP sendiri.


-Supaya memori kenangan tetap ada sepanjang zaman dan sampai kedepannya masih bisa dapat kita akses
-dan untuk di bitcointalk apabila ada klaim bisa kita ajukan archive Op yang sebenarnya tanpa editan  Photoshop, gambar, dll. jadi Archive itu nyata tanpa editan sedikit pun untuk mudah diklaim atau diperlihatkan ke masa depan.



Apa itu wayback machine?

Wayback Machine adalah arsip digital dari WEB dan informasi lain dari Internet yang dibuat oleh Internet Archive atau istilah kerennya perpustakaan internet.

ini penampakan webnya :

1. Silahkan Sign Up menggunakan facebook, google dan sebagainya [optional]
2. Kolom 2 buat explorer website yang pernah diarsipkan dari tahun pertama internet muncul sampai tahun saat ini
3. Gamabr 3 adalah tempat kita menyimpan web, bisa tanpa sign up [Lebih baik sign up terlebih dahulu karena nanti akan tersimpan di file kita]

4. Jika telah sign up maka kita bisa explorer semua, bisa save outlink, save yang error dan bisa disimpan semua di file.

5. Ini contoh saya menyimpan web Sub forum board indonesia
Terlihat bagaimana Archive men-screenshoot semua link dan tampilan web. Jadi apa yang terjadi detik itu bisa disimpan dan linknya dapat dibuka, walaupun tahun depan atau 20 tahun lagi web tersebut dihapus atau diubah masih dapat kita menyimpan memori tersebut dan bisa mengklik linknya seperti saat di SS

6. Gambar 6 di bawah adalah profil dan lokasi tempat menyimpan archive yang telah kita SS dan gambar 7 adalah file web board yang telah Archive.


- Web archive sangat penting buat kita yang rajin ngeblok atau menulis di web yang tidak kita akses sepenuhnya karena suatu saat post kita bisa dihapus, diedit atau diubah oleh moderator dan admin sehingga tulisan yang telah dibuat bisa hilang. Dengan telah diarchive di sini, maka tulisan kita tetap ada sepanjang zaman dan terarchive di perpustakaan digital.

- Web archive juga penting buat menangkal HOAX yang marak beredar dengan poto palsu, atau tulisan yang sudah diubah dari nyomot di media digital. Terlebih dahulu diarchivekan sebagai bukti bahwa yang beredar itu adalah hoax atau berita palsu dengan memberikan bukti Archive yang diakses sepenuhnya tanpa editan.


Mari Bernostalgia di Archive internet zaman dahulu yuk...
