bump for more info about n26, they seem very promising but so far I can't find info from crypto users using them.
+1

I would also like updated information on n26 and kraken.
Do they block Kraken like Revolut does?

It is possible to both withdraw and deposit?
2  Economy / Exchanges / Decent EU-based exchange? on: January 15, 2018, 01:12:04 PM


My experience with kraken has been horrible in the recent months.
There is an increasing numbers of dissatisfied customers from Bitstamp regarding long support response times and even some fraud accusations.
These have been the oldest and most established bitcoin exchange in Europe! Kraken is responsible for assisting in processing claims by the 127,000 creditors of Mt. Gox.

It still boggles me that after all these years of terrible business practices, customer dissatisfaction and bad system security, not a single decent EU-based cryptocurrency exchange has emerged.
Some justify the problems due to the increasing demand. These are not just growth pains. It's something more.
Please, let me know, am I the only one with these beliefs?
3  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Is the only difference between BTC and BCC the 8 MB block? on: December 20, 2017, 08:10:47 PM

The only reason Bitcoin Cash works thus far is because nobody uses it. If it were to be working at scale (that is, full blocks) people running nodes would get kicked out of the network, eventually leading only to datacenters running the BCH network.

The point is that Bitcoin Cash network is already centralized but the market doesn't care. The current transaction capacity is at 8MB which is equivalent to 2.5 million transactions per day. As long as the tx volume is below 2 million per day, or 6x the current rate of bitcoin, the fees will very low.

Blockstream and the USAF Trolls will never give Bitcoin the 2x part of the Honkong and NewYork Agreement,
read their their posts,
so this is the last exit before the lost of the real Bitcoin
following Satoshies vision.

This should have been done much earlier.

People like you are delusional.
That altcoin will not get any traction
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Why does Bitcoin Core -prune not show the balance of imported addresses? on: January 06, 2017, 02:46:06 PM
I couldn't decipher exactly what you are asking in this case. Are you saying that:
1) You pruned your blockchain and then imported the address; or
2) You imported the address and then pruned the blockchain?

Keep in mind that '-rescan' is disabled in pruned mode (according to 0.12.0 release notes), thus importing an address will not show it's balance IIRC.


Thanks for the response.

Quote
1) You pruned your blockchain and then imported the address; or
This. I used importaddress "my-watch-only-address" "" false
With importaddress "my-watch-only-address" I got a "Rescan is ddisabled in pruned mode" error.

I was wondering why would it need a rescan. I thought the full blockchain is needed only for the transaction history.
In case that someone doesn't care about the history, why would he just import an address of private key to check balance?
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Why does Bitcoin Core -prune not show the balance of imported addresses? on: January 06, 2017, 01:01:35 PM
It seems that it needs to download the entire blockchain.
I was under the impression that this wouldn't be the case, as the full blockchain is only required
for the transaction history.
Am I wrong?
7  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: 'Blockchain chunking' - can that be done? on: January 01, 2017, 11:14:36 PM
OP, your idea is not new.
There have been many proposals like this.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=88208.0
https://www.scribd.com/document/317130737/Bitcoin-On-Chain-Pruning

The downside is that this has the same security assumptions as in SPV wallets.
I think it is worth it though.
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: need help/advice on bitcoin-core v0.13.0rc1 and network on: August 11, 2016, 11:25:46 PM
I have been running full nodes for 2 years. No problem with the firewall, and no problem with the IP, which haven't been changed.

I've got unreachable to other nodes since yesterday. Before all was well, and nothing was changed on my PC, firewall, IP etc. I have also restarted my PC and router a couple of times, but still 0 (zero) Incomming connections on the network bebug window in my bitcoin client.

Can it be a bug on the v0.13.0rc1 ? Should I change back to client 0.12.1?
Is 8333 really open?
Did you perform a port  check test for that?What does www.canyouseeme.org say?
9  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: When can Mimblewimble be implemented? on: August 07, 2016, 03:51:10 PM
I believe a hard fork would be needed for that. Mimblewimble would better be a discrete blockchain implementation to get 100% of it's scalability potential.
10  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Why do you need to download 7 years of chain block on: August 06, 2016, 04:59:36 PM
If every node enables pruning, new nodes won't be able to sync the chain on top of the genesis block, they would need to trust a third party to receive an updated chain. Practically if this happens (very unlikely in short-mid term) it will have disastrous implications on decentralization and security.
Afaik there are plans to distribute the block chain data on nodes to address the problem.

However there will still be the need to sync the entire history, which will increasingly uncomfortable in the future.
There is an interesting idea on a "Bitcoin Onchain Pruning" solution,but I don't know to what extent it can work.

The Mt Gox disaster put bitcoin on the fridge.
That incident proves just that.  Sad Mark Karpeles did massive harm to bitcoin...

As far as I know eBay cards aren't globally valid.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: New Bitcoin Puzzle on: May 29, 2016, 08:53:43 PM
Really cool game, but it almost made my computer crash because the imagine resolution is so big that it was struggling to render it. I guess I need to buy a new computer.

What is the total prize of BTC for the winner? only winner gets BTC or you can find small BTC rewards?
You tell us if you win.
Seriouly just play. It's a game. In the past if the winner was kind enough he would donate a fraction od the reward.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: New Bitcoin Puzzle on: May 29, 2016, 05:35:06 PM
I couldn't get to anything notewirthy in the game.
The door is locked, and you need to enter the password with a qwerty keybord in there, but no clue for the password.
I only found that "LOOK AT FLOOR" reveals a skeleton with a a jacket, a note and the map.
The note says:
Quote
I fear I may perish soon. The portal sent me here. Now, I'm trapped with no way out. I think this map holds the key but I can't decipher it.

So it is obv the map. We need somehow to extract more information from it. but no clue yet.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is Bitcoin, dogecoin, and litecoin the same ?? on: February 20, 2016, 09:22:59 PM
Think of it this way.

Bitcoin is the cock, litecoin sucks the cock and dogecoin licks the balls. They are all working together to spray cryptocurrency all over the world.
Well I think you made it clear. Bitcoin is the king.

17  Other / Politics & Society / Re: ISIS Claims Major Counterattacks as Iraqi Forces Lay Siege to Ramadi on: December 25, 2015, 07:29:02 PM
The retards in the Iraqi government are repeating their mistakes again and again. They are sending in the ill-trained Iraqi soldiers, without enough equipment and ammunition. It was a mistake to keep the Shiite militia out of the fighting. Without them, the morale of the remaining troops will be very low, and the Sunni soldiers are likely to defect in large numbers.
No matter what, 2016 will be the end of ISIS extremists. The Assad regime is not going to fall provided with
Russian support.
18  Other / Politics & Society / Re: Has Europe Reached the Breaking Point? on: December 21, 2015, 09:28:20 PM
As usual, the NY Times claim that Russia is behind all the evils. According to them the refugee crisis was worsened by the Russian air-strikes, when the truth is the other way around. Russian air-strikes have reduced the area under the control of Jabhat Al Nusra and the Islamic State, there by enabling the internally displaced Syrians to go back to their native villages and towns.
I love how people here is open minded, not being fooled with western propaganda.
"Russia bombings intensified refuge crisis" "They only bomb the FSA, not ISIS"
Are some common misinformation spread by the western media, while the Russians are bombing any
anti-Assad force, including the American-equipped "good" jihadists, Jabhat Al Nusra.

I don't think the Han people (Chinese) will really slow down.
Napoléon Bonaparte once said that China is a sleeping giant.
The truth is that it is still sleeping.
