1  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Bitcointalk Merit Guide Ranking up on: July 15, 2018, 10:22:21 PM
I think the idea of merits is reasonable but actual realisation is bad. As I understand newbies will fail to improve especially from member to full member. To get so many merits is very tough even if you have enough experience in technologies and familiar with bitcointalk foum rules. I think this forum need some upgrades as well. It's about blockchain. So, we can make the forum on the blockchain. We have steemit, dtube. Why don't we have bitcointalk with similar functions? Bitcointalk can easily collect enough money on ICO without much promotion and there are enough talented developers.

It's up to you of course but before promote or work with any brand new ICO you have to do your homework - research the company, team, idea, documents as mych as possible and only after that start work. Look at this as an investment of your time and efforts. 95%+ will fail obviously, half of them will be pure scams. But if you did your homework good enough then you will have good profits. At least much higher chances to get it.

I saw Binance and Kucoin almost from beginning. I remember most pros and cons plus similarities as well as price movements in 2017 but overtime I really bet on binance. They proved their competition. Kucoin for the opposite isn't that strong exchange and a lot coins dropped below tge price after listing.

Thanks to DannyHamilton for a thorough and helpful response.

I think I'll start another thread about the single-use donation problem. I use WordPress, perhaps we can create a plugin for it, if it doesn't exist already.

I've done some experimentation, and there are a couple of solutions for Bitcoin donations on WordPress:

1) You can install the "Easy Bitcoin Donation Widget" plugin, which provides a very simple QR code with a fixed address. Change it as frequently as you like.
2) You can install the "Give WordPress Donations", "GoUrl.io Payments Gateway", and "GoUrl Bitcoin donation addon" plugins (all three) to generate a unique address for every donation. However, once a donation has been made, it is forwarded to a single fixed address. This can probably be changed as desired too.

Neither of these is quite what I'm after. Ideally I'd like to provide a master public key, which provides a new donation address every time a payment is made. Not 100% sure what this would require. Maybe some sort of processing of the blockchain, to determine when the current donation address has been used?

6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Explain wallets to me on: June 16, 2016, 05:13:10 AM
Hi everyone,

I understand that the term "wallet" can be used to refer to the Bitcoin client software, such Armory, Electrum, or the official Bitcoin Core. What I'd like to ask about is the logical concept of a "wallet", that holds a collection of Bitcoins across these various products.

Is a wallet merely a collection of private/public key pairs that can be used to send/receive Bitcoins? How are these addresses generated? Is there a maximum number of addresses that can be generated per wallet? How does the client know if an address is in my wallet? How is a HD wallet (used in Mycelium) different from an ordinary wallet?

Also, I have a related question: according to the official Bitcoin website, an address should only be used to receive coins once. I want to put a donation link on my website. How can I generate a new address for each donation?

Many thanks

Without the seed, you're boned.

How did you manage to create a Watching-Only wallet though? Mycelium creates HD wallets that are all recoverable with the same seed phrase.

What do you mean by "password"? Are you talking about the 12 word seed phrase, or the PIN? If you have the 12 word seed phrase of your original wallet, it should work with the next HD wallet you created. In this case you would need to reinstall Mycelium.

Hi guys. I have a similar problem. I have Hive on my smartphone , which was broken six months ago; Today I repaired it and I read that HIVE is closed and it is no longer supported !!! I do not remember my passphrase , but I remember my PIN ... but when trying to enter... it remains stationary on "Verifying your PIN".

How can I fix it?! Sad

thanks for support!



I don't think the PIN is enough to recover your coins with another wallet, like Mycelium. But the passphrase or private keys *might* be recoverable from your phone. I personally don't know how to do it. Perhaps someone else can help you.

I just tried registering an account with my USA VPN, but it still wouldn't let me Sad
10  Economy / Service Discussion / Using gyft.com outside USA on: June 05, 2016, 05:52:14 AM
Hi everyone,

Amazon.com does not accept Bitcoin, but gyft.com sells Amazon gift cards for Bitcoin, so there is a workaround.

However, when I went to sign up for gyft.com today, it told me it is only available for residents of USA.

I have access to a VPN provider that has servers in America. Has anyone been able to access gyft.com from places outside USA using this technique?

Many thanks

A friend had a hive wallet, on my recommendation.  Now hivewallet.org is closed and he's lost the app, how can I restore if I have the 12 words?

I tried using counter wallet or and old copy of brainwallet.org but doesnt match.

This thread has what you need Wink

Use Mycelium - I think (as I remember) the option is "restore cold wallet" - then enter passphrase you used for hive wallet. It works.

Yay, it worked! I installed Mycelium on my Android device, created a new wallet, then used the Cold Storage option. I used my Hive passphrase and my bitcoins appeared in the wallet. Smiley

Many, many thanks Cheesy

Did you correct the path to m/0'/0?

Can you explain what this means, please?

Don't worry, I figured out what you meant. Unfortunately, it didn't work Sad

Okay, I used my seed phrase with https://dcpos.github.io/bip39/ to generate a BIP32 root key, but when I put this key into electrum, it displayed a balance of 0 bitcoins.

Hi, thanks for the advice. Can you tell me which wallets support the BIP39 standard?

How do I get the private keys from my passphrase?

Hi everyone,

I went to use my Hive wallet on Android today, and it would not open. According to https://hivewallet.com/ the project has been ended.

I only had 0.1 BTC in that wallet, but I would appreciate any help in recovering it. I still have my passphrase.

Thanks.

Hello,

I have some bitcoins stored on a paper wallet, that I want to sweep into Electrum. What's the easiest way to do this? I have a webcam that can read QR codes.

Many thanks
