My only PGP-key has been compromised and revoked. All previous Bitcoin signed messages are invalid. As of this point there is no way to confirm ownership of Lauda.

Thank you everyone in advance, quite the 9 lives that some Kitty had here. Cool
3  Economy / Reputation / Goodbye, world! on: October 19, 2020, 05:29:24 AM
I regret to say in public sunshine that unforeseen pressures in the shadows leave me no option but to leave the forum permanently.

After this post, "Lauda" will cease to exist. By that I mean: The faceless virtual persona named "Lauda", who exists only in cypherspace, will become detached from its "soul", and left as an empty shell. "Lauda" has abruptly reached end-of-life. Of course, this is the inverse of the usual way of thinking. There are hereby multiple layers of abstract indirection, which you can probably follow if you know C/C++ programming and/or witchcraft.

The word "soul" usually refers to an invisible entity from an immaterial plane of existence; if you believe in such a thing, consult your friendly local cult for mystical details. Such a soul animates a "body" on the material plane. But what of a pseudonymous virtual persona? It is a disembodied entity on an immaterial plane of the mind, which is animated by a body as its "soul". If it loses its body, it dies, even if the body lives on. Our body is quite well; but it wishes to depart from the virtual plane that has consumed over 7 years of its life, and much of its energies.

It has been a wild forum life, - or perhaps, nine forum lives involving everything from the dark arts of moderation, to being burnt at the stake several times. (I got better.) Thanks to my forum friends, fans, and cult votaries.

Now to protect the community in case of a hack, I will request that theymos ban the "Lauda" account (u=101872); and this post is to be taken as a notice that any future posts or PMs by this account are certain to be the product of an impersonator - a blackhat using malicious necromancy to animate a zombie. After that point, do not deal with my account even if it produces messages signed by Bitcoin or PGP keys. If the account logs in, you should assume that it is compromised. If it produces a signed message, you should assume that the keys are compromised. Of course, if Faketoshi appears in a catbat mask and claims to be me, then you should assume that it is a fraud.


Hereby I want to emphasize that it will never again be possible to contact "Lauda", just as it is impossible to contact the dead. I do not want any chance of an impersonation scam in a name that many people trust.

Over the years people have even trusted "Lauda" with different sums of Bitcoin. I have one of the highest name-recognition accounts on the forum. This places on me a responsibility. It is not to feed my strong ego that I say, it is a valuable account with a high reputation - a trust that people place in my unseen body, through the name of "Lauda". If I cease to be "Lauda" then according to my well-known principles, I must affirmatively prevent anybody else from using this name and forum account ever again.

One must always have a contingency plan, mine was carefully considered but sometimes much smarter players get involved. There is nothing further to discuss. A cat comes and goes as it pleases, - even between different planes of existence. I leave you with a last final message that you must never forget:

It is a very easy way for the inner circle to farm merits by content which would otherwise get you banned for posting it in that quality and quantity elsewhere. The way they are, things have always been.

There are some sins one should never commit. A trusted source told me that I have not sold my account.
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Germany Continues Shutting All Unlicensed Bitcoin ATMs on: August 14, 2020, 02:53:35 PM
This is good as it will protect the consumers from shady ATMs.

1. this is somewhat old news
2. unlicensed operators in Germany are just putting their machines in new locations instead (and changing the company name/branding)

Germany is indeed a big market for ATMs, so it makes it quite easy for the machines to hide amongst the crowd Smiley
They can be very fast at times. One way to protect against this is to also punish the entity that accepts the ATM placement.
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Segwit, and batching, a must in these times on: August 05, 2020, 07:57:05 AM
Do not use services provided by businesses that do not implement Segwit or batching. A lot of time has passed since Segwit has been released, and it is not a lot of development work to make the new address type work. This will force them economically to behave faster and more in the interest of users.

The most likely scenario is that they generated two addresses from the same HD wallet. @vycl87 gave it to @koincik to use. (paying off a loan or whatever).

Though in that case, there is no reliable wa for them to prove that they are different people.

Nobody in their right mind would do it like that, Occam's razor: Therefore, they are alts.

In the very off chance that its not the same HD wallet, I just don't understand why "different users" would entrust each other with their private keys unless they were very close, or more likely, the same person.
I've been entrusted with private keys on multiple occasions. I can also imagine someone uses someone else's addy to join a certain campaign, for instance because he owes him money, or because he's not interested in weird "tokens".
It's all possible, just not very likely.
Even if entrusted with somebody's key, you would not import it into your own wallet and intentionally merge it with your coins while you are safe-keeping it. It would just be a made up lie.

My assumption was the addresses were random.
No. Pseudorandom at best. Read about derivation paths in HD wallets in detail. You can use the xpub to deterministically derive the children. HD stands for hierarchical deterministic for a reason.
I know about xpub (but never memorized the exact details): as far as I know, it's not possible to know addresses are derived from the same xpub unless you know xpub, right?
That is correct.

In the very off chance that its not the same HD wallet, I just don't understand why "different users" would entrust each other with their private keys unless they were very close, or more likely, the same person.
The chance that they gave each other the private key at the same time is near zero. The chance that one gave the private key to the other to create this transaction is near zero as it makes zero sense to do so (each could have made their own sending the same amount to the same address).
The chance that they managed to construct this transaction without sharing private keys, i.e. constructing partially signed transactions and exchanging them and making them work is zero. They do not have 1/10th of the brainpower nor knowledge to do this.

If it were a CoinJoin-type transaction the amounts wouldn't be going straight to the same Binance address.
Not necessarily, but this is not coinjoin. A coinjoin is not a m to 1 transaction, it is a m to n transaction.

Additionally, many CoinJoin transactions (I think they are Wasabi wallet transactions) get captured as being part of this wallet.
Wasabi coinjoin is always bech32 and always the same amounts as outputs and many more participants. This definitely has nothing to do with Wasabi.

No. Pseudorandom at best. Read about derivation paths in HD wallets in detail. You can use the xpub to deterministically derive the children. HD stands for hierarchical deterministic for a reason.

If you only knew what you were talking about. You are being sold promises of anonymity that can not be realized.

1) Sorry for your loss.
2) This is a scam accusation thread - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=83.0.
3) Stop using shady mixers, and trust nobody unless already extensively proven by others to be trustable. Then trust little.
4) Use Wasabi for Coinjoin mixing - https://www.wasabiwallet.io/.
5) Use Chipmixer for traditional mixing - https://chipmixer.com/.

You don't have to like the guy (no really, you shouldn't !) but happened to develop BitcoinJ (among others). That's all I said.
