1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: How can I create a default wallet automatically if no wallet is loaded? on: December 09, 2023, 06:02:17 PM
I heard in the early versions, there was a feature that a default wallet is automatically created if it does not exist
Yes, those are the earlier versions before 0.21.0. (01-16-2021)
Here's the release notes:

To get to the repository's state at that time, click your prefered version's tag above "Compare" button in the 'release' page:
Example for v 0.20.1:

To elaborate on this, it may be easier to git clone both repos locally, then open them in VSCode/Sublime/Notepad++, etc and run the comparison there first. Once you find the corresponding changes, work backwards and reimplement the feature. It doesn't seem like a big change though, so it shouldn't be too hard. Make sure you have a dev environment set up so you can compile and debug. If you need recommendations or even an OVA.OVF with everything ready to go let me know.

I am forking the bitcoin v25.0 and want to add a feature that create a new wallet with the name "default" automatically when there is no wallet could be loaded.
Could anyone guide me how and where I should change the code? Huh

I heard in the early versions, there was a feature that a default wallet is automatically created if it does not exist

Are you familiar with C++? Shoot me a PM and I will see what I can do to help you out!

Sorry to hear this happened to you. Unfortunately, it is most likely they won't send them back, but I hope I'm wrong. Since they announced their discontinuation of services, I am surprised they even replied to you. The only thing I can think of to do is to continue contacting them. Offer to show them identification and proof of your person. There's really not much else you can do in this situation. One thing to remember though is that honey is often better than vinegar, meaning that you will get better results by being respectful, calm, patient, and polite; rather than angry and resentful (at least in the communications with them).

Keep trying and good luck! I know it must be a terrible feeling to have something like this happen.  Undecided

5  Economy / Services / Service | Animated or Non-Animated Advertisement Creation | Adblock Evasion on: December 08, 2023, 05:19:39 PM
I will create an advertisement for you, to your specifications. I can create frame-by-frame animated ads & non-animated ads that, 99% of the time, can evade ad blockers. It’s possible to do this because it’s just an image, linked to a URL, without any of the bloat and trackers that ad blockers try to detect.

Prices are very low as I am doing this mostly for some spare crypto and to hone my skills. The prices will vary based on your specific needs, for example a 256×256 non-animated ad will cost around $5, but as said before the prices will go lower or higher based on what you need.

I can create any size for you. Here is what I will need from you to create your ad:
1.   Your size(s). Let me know if you’d prefer something for your header which will have a longer width, or sidebar which is usually square or with a longer length. If you want multiple sizes done, just let me know.
2.   Do you want it animated or not?
3.   Any images, logos, text or other elements you’d like in your ad
4.   The link/website/affiliate you want your advertisement to lead to. I can add statistics to your link so you can track visitors, BUT doing so will increase the risk of ad blockers trying to filter it. The best way to avoid this is having an in-site redirection that uses your domain to forward the link (WordPress for example has many of these plugins), but you can use any URL shortener or even just have the link itself. It’s really up to you!

I can accept pretty much any crypto (I try to avoid Ethereum due to the brutal gas fees), just let me know what you’d like to pay with, and I’ll let you know if it’s okay.

For payment and delivery:

If you are a Full Member+ with no negative feedback, I will create it for you first on faith. Anyone with negative feedback or below Full Member will need to either pay first, or put the money in an escrow.
Payment won’t be accepted or withdrawn (from escrow) until you are completely satisfied. I will send you watermarked proofs for you to check out before I deliver the actual ad to you.

If you require a specific ad format (like .png, .jpg, etc) let me know. Most animated ads will be in GIF format, though.

If you have any questions or would like me to make an ad for you, please feel free to PM me, reply here or get in touch VIA the methods below.

Supported. I can't ******g stand scammers in any colour. Whether you default on a loan, or pull people into a scamcoin ICO and run with the money, they are abhorrent to everything this community was built around. If someone is good enough to loan you money without collateral, you should at least have the self-respect and mutual respect that they showed in loaning it to you, to repay them back. If you can't do it when you say, then at least communicate with them.

There is no excuse for behaviour like this. Sorry you had to suffer that shasan  Angry  Undecided

Utopia P2P Review

Utopia (yo͝o-tōpē-ə), noun: A world in which everything and everyone works in perfect harmony. (Wiktionary); Any idealized place, state, or situation of perfection. (Webster's New World)

When it comes to the modern web, we often take for granted the fact that we have communication that is instant, pages of information on quite literally any topic, personal diaries, business portals, digital currency. While these are commonplace now, they were not always so. From the beginning days of IRC, email, BBS and MUDs, to the GNUtella networks, Bittorrent and TOR; these have defined the way many of us view the world and interact within it.
The Utopia Peer to Peer network aspires to combine many of these aspects into a single unified experience. Many have tried in the past to create a secure and anonymous communication platform (Bitmessage, I’m looking at you), but most have failed in some way or another. In the past 15 years, I can honestly say I have not been so excited or genuinely impressed by a platform that has integrated most of what we enjoy about the web. Let me show you its features and explain the reason why I feel this way.

Getting Started

Getting Utopia is a very easy process. Simply go to and click on the top right “Download” button.

There are multiple platforms to choose from, including Linux, macOS, Android and Windows. Installing on Windows is a breeze and installing on Debian based Linux and RHEL based Linux is also not an issue. Getting it installed natively on Arch Linux is a bit of a pain due to there not being packages, AppImages or a source code to build, but you can get it to work, you just have to jump through a few more hoops to do so.
Once installed you’ll get your public key. This is essentially your ID. It is also your wallet address for the Utopia cryptocurrencies.


The utopia ecosystem is incredible. Right away you might face a bit of information overload as there are so many options and things to see. But take your time and read all you find. There is also a Chatbot that you can ask questions to if you have something specific. Here is an example:

The bot is powered by ChatGPT

so you can be assured you’ll get the answers you need and much more.
Here is another example of this Wink

I’m gonna go with number 5, Quick n’ easy tacos!
We also have their version of email called uMail. Essentially the same as email, but within the Utopia ecosystem. I don’t know anyone yet to send uMail to, but feel free to send me your Public key and I’d be happy to say Hi! Also, on their forum they are currently paying per 10 posts a nice chunk of CRP, so check it out!

You can also send crypto through uMail to anyone you wish. Speaking of crypto…

Utopia’s Currencies, Web Proxy, Games & uNS

Utopia has 2 of its own cryptocurrencies. Their native currency called Cryptons and a USD soft-pegged stablecoin called UUSD. I have not been able to try their UUSD, and because of the closed source nature of both UUSD and CRP, I cannot delve into the code to see how it is put together.
CRP is at the heart of the paid services on Utopia. Gaming, and their uNS in particular. So far they have Chess and Poker for gaming, but I can easily see how this could be expanded. The uNS is one of my favorite parts, but sadly I haven’t been able to get a Utopia Domain name yet, as they cost 10 CRP to register. But I will be buying one.
Do you remember Namecoin with their .bit domains? What about Emercoin with their .emc domains? Well Utopia has built their own DNS in with the whole ecosystem. To access the utopia based websites they have included with the package their Idyll browser. A great TOR alternative (or will be once the userbase gets higher) and a place that I look forward to see grow. Bundled in with the whole package is a web proxy. Much like TOR, you can browse the clearnet in complete anonymity, totally free. It works much like a VPN. It is roughly the same speed as TOR, though I found sometimes it is much faster. It really depends on what relay you go through. While the proxy within Utopia uses their Idyll browser, you can also configure their Socks5 proxy to use with your preferred browser. I tested the Proxy for DNS leaks and there wasn't even a hint of one.

They have their own exchange on their uNS, which is actually impressive in the volume counts. The trading pairs are low at the moment, at 6, but you can request coins to add.


You can mine CRP, but it is a bit different than normal POW mining. You NEED a Linux VPS or Dedicated server with at least 4GB of RAM & Public IP Address. For some reason home connections don’t work (or at least mine didn’t). But if you have the resources to mine it, I’d encourage it! They have their own miner tool for this.


As stated before, the UI can be a bit overwhelming at first. But once you get the hang of it, there is much to discover. I am finding that even after a week of using it daily, I am still discovering little hidden gems and interesting tools integrated within Utopia. There is something new always around the corner.


So far the Utopia P2P Ecosystem is growing slowly, but steadily. Currently as of writing this, there are 6841 Channels (kind of like a discord channel, or IRC channel), the channel I use mostly, currently has 334 users online, but many other channels have up to 900 online at any given time.
I see big things in this community’s future, and I am so glad I am now part of it.


Utopia is striving for something we have all wanted, but could never quite find, or had the technical knowledge to make happen. It is only a matter of time until their CRP currency explodes and the userbase climbs at a neck breaking speed. Coupled with the uMail, uNS, Chat, ChatGPT Bot, File Sharing, Market, Currency, Decentralized nature, and censorship resistant ecosystem; the Utopia platform is unlike anything I have ever used.

Download it and try it out, I promise you won’t regret it.

10  Other / Meta / Re: Mixers to be banned on: December 01, 2023, 01:26:26 PM aims to allow about as much freedom as is reasonably possible. But this is not a darknet forum, and with mixers looking "grayer and grayer", it's no longer reasonably possible to allow linking to mixers. Even though "a cryptocurrency mixing service is not necessarily illegal," a clear pattern has emerged where mixers pop up, last for a little while, and then get taken down by law enforcement once they get too big. Allowing mixers to be posted on before they seemingly-inevitably get declared illegal and seized is not sustainable. Therefore, linking to mixers will no longer be allowed, just the same as linking to darknet sites is already not allowed.

To avoid disruption, there will be a grace period: Nothing will change until Jan 1, 2024.

Starting Jan 1, 2024:
 - Existing mixer announcement topics (and a few topics that have no value without mixer-links) will be locked and archived.
 - Going forward, directing people to mixers in new posts/edits will be totally disallowed, and doing so could lead to a ban. Many mixer URLs will be wordfiltered-out, and if you bypass the wordfilter, then that'll definitely be ban-worthy.
 - Any remaining mixer signatures (etc.) may be deleted. Anyone persisting in advertising mixers will be banned.
 - In most cases, old posts will not be deleted. Nobody should be banned for old posts.

You do not need to go edit/delete your past posts. Links will be automatically wordfiltered-out as of Jan 1, or in a few cases mods will archive or delete posts, but you will not be banned for old mixer-related posts.

It will continue to be OK to discuss mixers in a general sort of way. Just don't direct people to mixers: don't link to a mixer, don't link to a directory with links to mixers, don't tell people to "Google ASDFmixer", don't link to a mixer's telegram, etc.

Definition of a mixer

For clarity, here is a detailed definition of what we mean by a "mixer". Most people know intuitively what a mixer is and don't have to read this.

Something is considered a mixer if it meets all of these requirements:
 1. It has a feature advertised for taking property, improving its privacy somehow, and then returning roughly the same type of property.
     a. Even though you can sometimes use non-mixers to mix coins by depositing and then withdrawing, this doesn't make it a mixer because this is an incidental use of the service; the service isn't advertised as privacy-enhancing.
     b. If a site is not primarily a mixer but has a mixer function, such as a mixer function on a gambling website, then the whole site is considered a mixer.
     c. If the site takes coins, gives you a possibly-transferrable IOU, and will convert this IOU back into mixed coins much later, then the temporary conversion into a different type of property does not prevent it from being considered a mixer.
     d. If the site internally converts your deposit into other things as part of its mixing, but ultimately the point of the product is to get your original type of property back, then that's a mixer, not an exchanger.
 2. It is possible for the mixer to steal property passing through it. Assume that the sender does everything as correctly as possible. Also assume that no miners/verifiers on the base-layer cryptocurrency are evil. But assume that every other actor involved is evil (everyone able to vote in a DAO, every coordination server, every counterparty, every member of a multisig, etc.). Ignore short-term software bugs which are expected to be quickly fixed.
 3. The service does not collect KYC-type info from all users.

Examples of things that are not banned mixers include exchangers (unless they have a mixing function), CoinJoin-supporting non-custodial wallets, and Monero.

Can't blame you. These have always made us look bad, even if they're not necessarily always used for illegal things. People who do need them only need to look on the darknet for 2 minutes to find one. I feel we have outgrown that type of thing here..

Hey marbet85,

Finished the coinbase quest and got the funds from them. I just converted it to USDT and am about to repay you now. Don't know why I didn't think of that earlier, I thought coinbase would have taken longer.
I know you didn't want any interest but I'm sending you 9 cents extra for the hour long loan.  Grin

Thanks again

Hi @mistercoin, I can help you if you want by KuCoin transfer.

Hey marbet85,

That would be greatly appreciated. Could you tell me how much interest you'd need? Thanks again!
Nothing to earn, only on required fee to transfer Smiley

Much appreciated! No problem on the fee, I'll send a bit extra anyway just as a thank you. I'll pm you my KuCoin uid now.

Hey guys,

I'm finally able to finish the vara quest on coinbase, but I'm short about 6 bucks CAD (Canadian) worth of it as I sold some back when the quest first became available and coinbase shut it down for a while.

I get paid on Friday, so I'll happily send you the 6 back plus whatever fee you'd require.

KuCoin transfer(if you don't use coinbase) or Coinbase internal transfer would work as it'll be free that way.

I can accept any coin that these exchanges support, I'll just convert it to vara. I'll also pay you back in whichever cryptocurrency you prefer. If you want straight cash and are Canadian I can etransfer it to you, or I can PayPal it.

I know it's a really small amount, but I'd like to finish this quest and get the 10 bucks from it before it expires or coinbase takes it down again.

Feel free to respond here or pm me. Thanks.

If you have an online presence that requires you to release articles, stories, tutorials, blog posts, or anything in-between, are you sure that your content is error-free? Is the spelling and grammar correct? What about punctuation? Are you a non-native speaker of English but wish to release English content, knowing you may have some broken sentences or incorrect usage of words?

If any of this applies to you, I am here to help.

I have often viewed things on the web that lose some of their professionalism, cohesion, and even legibility due to the above-mentioned problems.

- I am available for one-time jobs and also on a continual basis.

- If you are unsure if I could help you, please PM me and I will let you know if I am qualified.

- Prices will vary, and depend on a number of factors. We will work out the total before any work is done and crypto is exchanged.

- My prices will be extremely fair, and my offers are always negotiable.

Please feel free to post here or PM me. I also have an email set up for work-related communication if you prefer:

I look forward to working with you!

If you are a hero member, why are you posting on this account? Could you provide us with the profile link to your hero account? It would go a long way to verifying what you say. In today's crypto scene, you can never be too careful. If you are not willing to prove your claim, then I would take that bit out of your pitch. If you are a new member who is offering a service, that's fine too. Everyone has to start somewhere. But making claims that you can't show proof of, is a terrible way to start a business..

Just my 2 sats worth.

If this gets removed, then I guess I'll know what this is. Self moderation is both a privledge and a curse..
