wie ware es hier wenn noch was übrig ist zu nutzen?

Auch die Frage ob jemand evtl Kontakte hat das etweilige spenden dann auch wirklich da ankommen wo es nötig ist und Freude macht.

Auch wenn ich nichts mit dem Pot zu tun habe und nichts dazu zu bestimmen habe, finde ich die Idee super.
Ich selbst war vor länger Zeit von solch einem Jahrhunderthochwasser betroffen und weis wie dringend da jetzt Hilfe notwendig sein kann wenn Familien gerade alles verloren haben. Staatliche Hilfen werden gern versprochen, doch was und vor allem wann wirklich etwas ankommt ist ein anderes Thema.
Bei konkreten Hilfebedarf wäre es daher sicher eine gute Option mit den restlichen BTC was sehr sinnvolles zu tun.

Wenn wir einen konkreten Hilferuf haben sollten, denke ich, dass dann entsprechend geholfen wird  Grin


Moin.
Finde die Idee super. Wenn ich mich recht erinner hatte doch damals einer von beiden da auch Steuermäßig was gemacht bzw. das abgeklärt. Eventuell kann man ja da anknüpfen.
Würde aber eventuell einen neue Spendenaktion machen und die verbleibende Btc von hier übernehmen.

Dann mach mal, wir helfen natürlich immer gerne  Grin

Hi, I use the GUI v17.2.2 and Ledger Monero App v1.7.7

And when I open my wallet I am stuck with "Waiting for daemon to sync" and "Network Status: Synchronizing" forever without anything happening.

What should I do?

Are you connecting to a private node or a you connected regularely on the mainnet?
Do you refresh from scratch? Which block number does it show at downloading? (You can also download the latest blockchain on https://www.getmonero.org/downloads/#blockchain)

GR Yaris? Nice, how is it? I've heard they're fucking rockets! Nearly bought one but just didn't; waiting on the 400Z

Si  Grin Cheesy Wink
Well, the GR Yaris HIGH PERFORMANCE reminds me of a car i always wanted to drive in my active racing days. To keep it short, it is the base for a rally car, not a track car, so keep that in mid before thinking about a purchase.

Secondly, on a twisty mountain road it is superior, thanks to the VERY good mechanics in the suspension, steering, weight distribution and drive train WITHOUT any electronically assisted systems, so the base is very healthy. Especially the brakes are -compared to other cars in the same niche- marvellous. Didn't have any outage though giving them hard times on mountain roads  Grin Cheesy Wink
Friend of mine has a braked 400hp EVO VII and after he couldn't catch up on our living room stage (some 16k's up to the italian boarder) he was smiling and angry at the same time (hence tight corners can be easily handbraked without the need to push the clutch)  Grin Grin Grin
Before you ask, yes i was on the dyno last friday and had 263,2hp@6515rpm with 392,8N-m@3966rpm. In my opinion the best range is between 3000 and 5500rpm, so you have best momentum  Smiley
On 01.05 i will be on the race track to see how it does there, probably pissing off some Porsches  Shocked
The two thing, that are annoying, is the seating position hence i am 190cm+, so that is a bit a pain in the ass, but i already have an appointment with my upholsterer to lower the seating staying legal. The second thing is the pedal position, to wide appart, so to double-clutch i have to do that with the heels and not with the rist or toes  Roll Eyes
I wouldn't call it a rocket with the power it has, in my opinion the gear ratio is to long, so could be a bit more shorter -although i reached 206km/h GPS on a bumpy and cornered mountain road- to have a better acceleration out of corners, but overall on the motorway i already earned some thumbs up with this "little" hot hatch  Wink

Overall, very good car in the base, for a sporty drive enough power, momentum and very good mechanics. If you want to go racing, you have to do a lot for making the driving accurate (seating position, pedals, steering and shifting) but for the money you need to spend, it is a bargain offer  Grin Grin Grin

What are you going to do with your 400Z

Yeah it definitely seems a fun car, especially if you keep it on the boil in the twisties. As for what I'll do to the 400Z, probably not a lot. Just light mods, nothing crazy as the wife will drive it too and it will likely be our daily driver. I've already got a stupidly modified GTR for going fast around a race track. That's not to say that the 400Z won't see a few laps in its time either haha

It's an R33 GTR, I'd post pics but I have none on this PC. As for mods, easier to list what I haven't done but basically head work, cams, turbos, injectors, ECU, upgraded gearset in gearbox, clutch, brakes, running E85 fuel, the list goes on. Makes about 400awkw and goes like a shower of shit haha

Yeah, Monero's transaction growth is most certainly very bullish.  It's entirely organic and real use oriented. I find it very encouraging.

There are many other chains with good transaction volume, but some of them are just crazy.  ETH is going wild.  And I think it will be the chain that shows us first what happens when nodes have to be run in big data centers and end up centralizing completely.  With a history of rules being changed many times ETH will certainly be the defacto example of a chain of loosely federated consensus nodes, and known active leadership.  I have no real idea what will happen to the various ETH killers/clones.

The bitcoin forks are full of shit mostly in my opinion... but they are probably going to be used transactionally as bitcoin's base layer fees stay high, and before bitcoins layer 2 is still being built out and evolving.  Several other older alt projects will be used that way as well.  Litecoin, Doge, our old friend Dash etc.

But I think people underestimate the many forms Bitcoin will be used transactionally OFF chain.  CashApp, PayPal, etc will emerge as trusted transactional layers for everyday use (ie coffee purchases).  I bet a standard eventually emerges as those companies make agreements to settle between each other off chain as well.  I would not be surprised if they use Liquid.  I think it may become possible to send BTC from a PayPal wallet to a CashApp wallet without touching the base layer. It is still possible lighting overshadows them all, but the UX is still too shitty for it to really win that one today.  However, it will still come along over time.  And once lightning is really working well it might be the layer for power users as well as the settlement layer for the larger orgs.  But until then Liquid is the sleeper... I still think that's goona seem like it came from nowhere eventually.

Most folks will use bitcoin this way.  And they will not care that they are trading privacy for ease and cost.

In time all the computational use cases being built around Ethereum will eventually begin to move to layers on Bitcoin as the tech expands.  People will realize that trying to be the base monetary layer for dapps and running dapps too is having your cake and eating it.

But Bitcoin's privacy issues are really starting to show up as we have known they would.  I love listening to Matt ODell twist himself into gordian knots trying to advocate for best practices for BTC privacy. They have not yet realized that all their coinjoins and use of things like Whirlpool is just going to taint all their holdings.  We really need to see taproot and it's multisig advantages get built out.

SO... I think we are starting to see Monero's next renaissance kick off.  Folks are going to realize that it is currently best in class... and on some levels the only contender.

One concern I have... and I am not done processing it is the recent rise of BCASH like Monero evangelism.  We are seeing a LOT of anti-bitcoin, "Monero is what the whitepaper really meant" type of narrative forming.  And I am not gonna lie.  I hate it.  Not because I disagree with it entirely, but because I think it is ignorant and one dimensional thinking.  And I know there are folks here that might be on the side of the folks pushing that narrative currently.  But I have always seen Monero as a dark companion to bitcoin.  For example which chain would you rather want to see governments use?

On the other hand, which chain do you think governments would be more likely to use. Wink

Interesting times gents!

300 before mid May.

Just beeing kinky...

I'm using the core wallet with the trezor model T and I have a different address showing up on the screen of the trezor to the one I'm supposed to be sending to according to the wallet on screen.
Anyone ever seen this?
Anyone have any idea what the heck might be going on here?
I'm not clicking send because thats literally the point of the trezor.

Were did you buy the Trezor Model T?
Are you using the GUI wallet? Were did you download the wallet software? Did you verify it?

hi !  Smiley

i am new to monero, but i have some experience with bitcoin core and bitcoin cash. Grin

i have found a list of app wallets on the official website ( getmonero.org/downloads/ ), ok good !

i plan to generate an address / viewkey / spendkey, with moneroaddress.org.

then i plan to store the address / viewkey / spendkey in a txt file, compressed in a password protected 7z archive (AES-256)

then i plan to use the mymonero app wallet (android) to manage the address (to receive / send xmr)

( i  do a similar approach for my btc addresses / coins, and for my bch addresses / coins, and no problem until now (fingers crossed Tongue) )

a few questions, please :

Q1) is the generator on moneroaddress.org trustworthy / reliable ?
 answer : apparently yes because recommended on the official website...

Q2) is the mymonero app wallet (android) trustworthy / reliable ?
 answer : apparently yes because recommended on the official website...

Q3) who funds the developments of the monero protocol ? are the developpers / contributors only working for the "cause" ?
 answer : apparently by donations and crowfunding...

any others advices you may have for a beginner ?

thanks !

You will not like my reply. Wink

I am going to assume you are planning to store what you consider to an un-lose-able sum.

Personally I think using moneroaddress.org is risky unless you know exactly what you are doing, and then the Dunning-Kruger effect is your enemy. You should ABSOLUTELY NOT use it on a computer that is connected to a network, or ever will be again.  If you can use some disposable OS or tails etc on a laptop that wont ever...  muh seriously.  It's really really just a bad idea.  I assume you will be entering in seed words on a internet connected computer...  all it takes then is a keylogger etc.  I guess if you are going to create a watch only wallet that is basically cold storage...  Then it's better.

Yes MyMonero is (probably?) trustworthy.  But you are choosing the lest secure of all Monero wallets.  It's a web wallet.  I would either use the official wallet, or Feather.  And you might as well generate your keys in those if you planned to just type them in in the first place.

Using a hardware wallet is really the best bet.  Period.  Seed created on unconnected device.  Stored on paper (or metal etc).  You get to use a Bip39 passphrase...  It's worth the 60-100$ IMHO.

Maybe someone can give you a less paranoid answer...  Why says I am right?  Don't trust.

Good luck!!!

AMEN  Wink

@Hueristic. In a fictional world where the president of the one world government, Janet Yellen has begun persecuting miners of the free people's currency, hidden bot mining is the only hope hehehe.

However, the Biden administration might begin to go after bitcoin miners in America. Janet Yellen's statements have not been very optimistic for the cryptospace.

Biden going after cryptography is a unsubstantiated Fud attack.

Trump was more anti bitcoin than any politician.



Janet Yellen is a tool of the establishment and just totes the .01%er's lines.

Which OS are you using? If you are on Windows i would suppose that your Antivirus application is stopping the mining process.
Can you also start the process in a CLI terminal in order to see the output you are getting.
Therefore it would be great if you can start 2 terminals
In the first terminal you start monerod
In the second you open the wallet with the mining command and a bit more verbose debugging output
Then we can help you, but without those parameters it is just guessing

Thats why i directed him to the mining thread, this can take a while and if it is there then others can find it easier rather than having it buried in this thread for the future.

also What is the easiest way to mine Monero and support the network?


Wich error message do you get?
The easiest way is to setup a node that is mining --> https://www.getmonero.org/get-started/mining/

even though wallet is synchronised the error message i get is "error mining" could not start mining"

Are you in the GUI or in the CLI?
