1  Economy / Digital goods / [WTB] Uber referrals on: March 06, 2018, 12:50:13 AM
I see multiple posts selling Uber referrals, but I'm not sure if any users are active.
So, send me a PM with your rates.

I have Paypal or Bitcoin. You go first or escrow unless we are dealing with small amounts, and you have prior transaction history.

This could also explain how my account got hacked recently.

Far more likely that someone is pretending to have the database and you just lost your account, rather than actually having the database and also using it to hack your account specifically.

Also, IIRC, the passwords are hashed with 7500 rounds of sha256crypt, and salted uniquely for each user. So even having the database does not make it much easier for someone to get a password.

There is a rule against it.  The forum itself states:

Quote from: Merit Source Page
It is not allowed for merit sources to sell their merit.

See above.  It is stated by the forum on a need to know basis.

Alright, so if I'm understanding what you're saying correctly, this is shown on the page to Merit Sources, and not to any other users?
If so, does this imply that all non-merit sources are allowed to sell their merit? That's still kinda concerning.

Also, "sell" is sketchy. I presume you can't directly pay people for goods and services. But, can you hold competitions where you give out merit to winners or users meeting some criteria? Can you frequently give merit to users when they help you in particular, rather than help other users, making it some sort of tacit assistance for merit?

I think there should be a review of someones account for after an extended period of time.  If the person is making quality posts in a certain section and is just not getting merit I dont thinkt its really fair.  If he is spamming that is one thing but if he is just forgotten about there should be some sort of QC process so good posters dont just quit.

Gah this really misinterprets what the forum seems to be looking for.

Should higher ranks be the only or primary motivation for being here? If so, then that's messed up.

I think users should generally be here for the discussion, and the merit system seems to slow the rate of rank advancement, and mainly stop users who are here just for that.

Bitcoin doesn't have master nodes. Are you referring to Dash, or something else? Try asking on a Dash forum such as

Odolvlobo is correct, and while people on this forum might be able to help you with an Altcoin anyways, you might want to mention which Altcoin you are talking about.
Also, maybe post it here for a quicker response:

Good job, I really like it!
You should likely post a higher-res or closer picture of it for anyone who actually wants to buy it though! I would consider it but $60 is still a bit expensive for me though.
7  Economy / Lending / Re: Offering Tittiecoin(TTC) Loans: 10k max on: January 29, 2018, 11:44:17 PM
As some others have pointed out, this is extremely sketchy.

Furthermore, check the transaction:

The amount sent does not seem to be 10k to me, as far as I can read it (correct me if I'm wrong)
EDIT: Something weird is happening, it now shows up as 10k to me

This still seems likely to be alts playing with each other though.
8  Economy / Gambling / Re: I'm starting a NY State Lotto Pool on: January 29, 2018, 11:38:03 PM
The fees for transaction might outweigh the actual amount. Bitcoinfees ( says that to get a transaction confirmed in an hour it costs $2.50 right now.

Other than that, you're still asking people to trust you with their money, and you don't have any trust yet... I'm sorry, but doing things intentionally to gain trust is generally frowned upon here.

If you have the images ready it should not be anything more than just putting them in img tags as follows:

You likely need to explain what "codes" you're looking for, otherwise you're going to get a variety of unrelated offers as you have so far  Roll Eyes
10  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Unique BTC amount instead of an address for IPN on: January 29, 2018, 11:31:43 PM
I feel like a good deal of payment processors and merchants go by the route wherein the payment processor instantly converts the BTC to USD before paying the user.
This then eliminates the benefit of trustlessness anyways.

I guess if you assume merchants that are looking for payment methods wherein they keep the Bitcoin in the end, the trustless nature can "kinda" help. But if you already don't trust the payment processor, it seems like you would just set up your own system, especially if you're just having to listen to a single address, and not needing instant USD conversions as well.

(And as others have noted, the fee does not really add up when you consider the existence of bulk transactions)
11  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Need JS client miner on: January 29, 2018, 11:24:29 PM
There exists a javascript miner that mines for a variety of cryptocurrencies, including Bytecoin:

You should be able to use it whatever app you're looking to make.
12  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: suspicious zip-file form What can it do? on: January 29, 2018, 08:52:10 PM
This url might be a good start:
And this looks exactly like the zip you received:

If you explore the file structure there, it seems a lot like the file you received... And it seems like the files you received are some sort of link to there..
I'm not quite sure what's going on either.

13  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: How to Change My Signature on: January 29, 2018, 08:45:22 PM
On the top of your screen, click the "Profile" button.
Then click the "Forum Profile Information" on the left side of the screen.
You should see a "Signature" field, put the signature you desire there, and then click the "Change Profile" button.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: I have my wallet.dat from a backup but I can't remember my passphrase on: January 29, 2018, 08:43:29 PM
I just need to know how to use btc recover to recover just one letter of my password.

Yeah this is not possible.

btcrecover or any method of brute-forcing your password just tries many different passwords, and it can only get a single success or failure result for each.
I repeat: It is impossible to "recover" one character of the password

The opposite direction works though:
If you remember some letters, maybe a couple, maybe even if you're not sure of their positions, it can help you speed up btcrecover a lot.
15  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Sharing Images/Videos through Blockchain on: January 29, 2018, 08:33:51 PM
We already have issues with block-size in Bitcoin (ie: 1 MB block size limit, and controversy surrounding this).
Sending entire encoded images in this way sounds near impossible.

You might want to look at something like Storj though. It is a decentralized storage platform, that is tied to a cryptocurrency.
It might be possible to translate decentralized storage into decentralized sharable storage.

(Also, maybe check the Project Development subforum for technical help)
16  Other / Meta / Re: Vital Facts and Figures about Merit Point System.(Answers to your Queries) on: January 29, 2018, 06:49:12 PM
The source is this post in this thread. The question seems philosophical to me: someone can pay a merit source, and the merit source can give merit. But it's not allowed for a source to sell his merits.

Although I didn't find that answer all over the forum but this is still the best reply for this question. I guess?

Consequences for the selling merit could be very bad for them.
Lutpin says: "It isn't allowed for sources to sell their merit, a punishment could go from being booted as source all the way up to getting your account banned, depending on how far you stepped out of line."

Sorry, none of these still answer it to me.
The post linked by LoyceV is just another user, not a moderator/theymos.

And Lutpin is an active member, but not a part of the staff as far as I know.... So is there any official word on it that anyone can link me to?
17  Other / Meta / Re: Vital Facts and Figures about Merit Point System.(Answers to your Queries) on: January 28, 2018, 09:36:37 PM
Minor request, can you add links to sources in the original post, so that it's easy to validate the facts?

In particular, if you remember where you found the source for the following answer, I would appreciate it:

Q: Is it possible for merit source to sell merits ?
A: This is possible but everything is public and it will be caught. Also, there are limits.

(I would like to know whether the forum has its own rules against it or "caught" just means negative trust)

18  Other / Off-topic / Re: sMerit Post-Review on: January 28, 2018, 08:23:04 PM
If you'd like to keep this going past the point where you run out of sMerit, you could make something like a spreadsheet (or just modify OP) where you could keep a list of undermerited posts.
Other users could then come in and merit the posts on the list if they agreed with your evaluation, and then you could remove them from the spreadsheet.

(I've sent you some Merit for now so you can continue this though)
19  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Re: To all of you who hate the merit system, there is another popular Bitcoin forum on: January 28, 2018, 08:12:34 PM
If you want to go to a forum that is free of censorship and free of strict rules that limit your ability to rank up

Censorship as an argument... maybe... But I don't really see this forum censoring

The merit system or ranking up as an argument? Laughable.
The only benefit a higher rank seems to get you is usually signature campaigns here.
The posting interval restriction becomes meaningless by the time you're a Jr. Member or Member.... So... why would you leave because of the ranking system?
20  Other / Meta / Re: Has Bitcointalk turned into social media? on: January 26, 2018, 11:20:49 PM
It seems that you can't get higher up in the ranks without "likes" lately.
Which is sort of weird, because if you basically don't have friends in high places or people just don't like you at best you stay in place. Not to mention that you can get negative merits. Why? Just because maybe someone doesn't like your thread/face/English pronunciation and so on.
At least this is my opinion.

I hope I won't get negative merits, but if I do I'll have to accept the fact that just freely speaking your mind is not the best idea.

You can't get negative merits as far as I know, you can only gain merit.
This has been put forward as a method of increasing post quality, not of requiring you to have friends. ie: posts that contribute should tend to get merit, and the merit system should force you to contribute before you rank up.
