Spacex may be the next company to announce that it has invested in bitcoin or some other cryptocurrency.

I am updating Bitcoin Electrum Wallet.
https://electrum.org/#home

I downloaded these three files and saved them in the same directory.
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/spesmilo/electrum/master/pubkeys/ThomasV.asc
https://download.electrum.org/4.0.9/electrum-4.0.9-x86_64.AppImage
https://download.electrum.org/4.0.9/electrum-4.0.9-x86_64.AppImage.asc


And used these instructions to verify the Electrum wallet.
https://electrum.readthedocs.io/en/latest/gpg-check.html
Are those instructions genuine?

So I did what those instructions told. And I got these results.

Did I do everything like they should be done? Are these results ok and is the Bitcoin Electrum Wallet safe and genuine?

Did the dip happen because of that Tether/Bitfinex scam?

The last argument will make every other meaningless.
Congratulations.

Crime has dropped every single year in my country for the past 25 years, we do have open borders. I'd say that has nothing to do with criminal activities.
You are blessed. We are not so much blessed here. We have open borders too. The criminality has risen since 1995 a lot, and since 2015 like Bitcoin. And that was not surprise for me.

We have interpol, we have "face-recognition" cameras amongst things we don't know about.
Face-recognition cameras all around is one result of the borders without control. And face-recognition is far more Orwellian than the border control on the borders of the country. At least it is for me.

Having borders everywhere would just complicate things, think about international transport and trade.
The border control is not needed "everywhere". The Border control is necessary only on the borders. And like I previously mentioned, if there is no border control on the borders, then the border control will be "everywhere", on schools, restaurants, roads and so on.

International transport and trade is not disturbed by the border control. The transport and trade is done all the day around, all the time over, already. Over the controlled borders, with no problem.

I do agree we must have some lines drawn, as there are places/people who can't integrate and whose cultural behaviour will never meet the standards of others. People are just different. But in EU the Shengen area has made things much easier, not vice versa and like said, I don't know anything about risen criminal activity, please do educate me if you have any information on that.
When the first lines are drawn again on the border, there will be far less cultural behavior like rape, murder, robbery, pedophilia, terrorism and violence inside the controlled borders.

In addition. The prerequisite for functional schengen area would be the border control on the outer borders of schengen, which exists in legally but not practically.

How big percentage is the "illegal" mass of the travellers?
When there is no border control, there are no illegal travelers, just legal.

Are they wanted beforehand or do they commit crimes where they see fit?
They commit crimes when necessary.

The people who commit crimes and bring "diversity" are allowed to the (at least in Europe) countries legally. Yeah, I mean the "culturally enrichening" folk.
Yes. Millions of such people have entered to Europe since 2015 through Europe's outer controlled borders, which were not controlled. So Europe broke it's own legislation and sovereignty too.

There are criminals always and everywhere, some are just born with a brain like that. Some don't have empathy and there are always people who want to get by easier.
That is why more criminals are not needed to enter into any country and the border control is the path of the least resistance.

Closing/opening borders doesn't change much in that.
The border control is not a "closed/opened border". It is the border control. Anyone with proper documents are able to go through border.

The world is getting more and more digital every day, soon a person wanted by Iraq will be wanted by Latvia as well, with exchanging information. Oh wait, we do have interpol already?
God bless we have.

I hope we can eventually get rid of this whole countries and borders nonsense. The internet is a good start and hopefully future space-based internet providers will eventually put an end to surface based internet filtering. And of course a global and distributed currency.
Well that’s what the EU is trying to do - get rid of borders. Of course the English want to put up more borders but never mind musn’t grumble
The EU is just shifting the problem to the edge of the EU instead of trying to make borders less relevant.

Please explain, do you mean the refugee problem?

Nevertheless borderless Europe is pretty fcking convenient, especially for someone who travels a lot. Just drive/travel from country to country without any hassle. Shengen area is a blessing.

When there is no border control on the borders, there will border control on the doors of shopping malls, schools, train stations, restaurants, hospitals, roads, highways and so on. And still people will get robbed, raped and killed for the sake of border-less travelling and free movement. So at the end the 20 minutes border control on the borders is pretty convenient procedure to go through.

This is a good solution to double spend.
https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/aodbku/proposal_prevent_large_reorgs_from_happening/

Monero nodes should not accept reorgs bigger than 10 blocks. Bigger than that only manual.

Hmm. Can we deny reorgs bigger than 10 blocks unconditionally? Mining is a random process, so it has its distribution in terms of math statistics with mean value for how many blocks need the reorg, and a standard deviation.

Standard deviation can be accumulated and counted by each node, so they can simply rejects each single reorg beyond the 3-sigma rule.

I think, manual API to check blocks beyond 3-sigma threshold proposed is a technical complication and philosophical violation.


That could temporaly solution until algorithm is changed.

This is something that really makes me feel good, just to know I took advantage on given information and being part of it,  before very much more and much smarter people as me did
Smiley Cheesy
I’m not the smartest but I can go into the future as a somewhat early adopter and Will be able to look back on a very good accomplishment I Made in the past

#keepHODLINGmicgANDsecureFUTURE


Intelligence is an overrated trait of a man. Consciousness and situational awareness are a lot more essential. They are the abilities to understand and handle time, space and knowledge.

The time, where we were, are and will be. The past the present and the future. Which influence in that order from one to an other. The space, the one that is around us and the other one beyond the horizon. The knowledge. To seek and compare information, to understand relation between reason and result and to make conclusions.

Without consciousness and situational awareness human is just a tabulating machine with no willpower. That is why many intelligent people fail. Most of these people will not understand what crypto is. Not even when they will use it. Just like they don’t understand what fiat is right now when they are using it.

And the more intelligent the mentally weak human is, the more usefull idiot he/she is for the TPTB.

For what you are accepting coins? Like what I can buy with them?

Therefore, I'm happy to announce that the forum is now accepting grin payments automatically, probably the first site other than exchanges to do so. You'll find a link at the bottom of the evil-fee and copper-membership pages.

I'm not sure about Donator ranks, but i really doubt you'll be able to buy those with Grin yet.

So there is nothing like atomic swap kind of things going on between the grin coins and the other coins? That I was thinking.
11  Other / Meta / Re: grin is now accepted for forum payments on: January 17, 2019, 06:34:52 PM
And i thought Grin won't launch it's mainnet anytime soon. But looks like the client is far from user-friendly and only mid-high end GPU can mine GRIN for now.

Any chance you'll accept another cryptocurrency (XMR, ETH or perhaps DOGE) soon?

XMR is possible, but probably not the others.

For what you are accepting coins? Like what I can buy with them?

Mid January taxes soon to be in order, time for corporate speculation bwahaha to the moon

What is precise date when the taxes have been paid.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: [XMR] Monero - A secure, private, untraceable cryptocurrency on: January 17, 2019, 11:54:21 AM
WE MUST propose mining algo more resistant to both ASICs and FPGAs. Could we embed for example some kind a dependence on UTC time into mining algo? The goal is to enforce FPGAs owners to justify their hardware manually every day. While honest GPU users will use UTC time from central system clock of their main computers?

Any better ideas welcome!

So when they has to manually do something for their FPGAs, the FPGAs has to be close to them, since they cannot every day travel all around? This makes impossible to rent the FPGAs all around the planet? This sounds a good idea.

But how UTC time is dealing with this? Has the manual handling to be done at very same moment for all the FPGAs in the one entity?

Hey, is there a good thread on a comparison of Monero and Grin around?

These are something.
https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/aebkgf/is_mimblewimble_or_other_such_privacy_technology/

There is about Beam, Grin, MimbleWimble and Tari.

Yesterday Linghtning Networks capacity dropped of about 50BTC/200000k$.
https://1ml.com
The reason was those lnbig.com nodes. Drop in number of nodes and channels was not so significant.. Now the capacity is increasing again, and will be were it was, maybe in two days.

Why this drop anyway happened?

Is there any clear evidence of flow from stocks to crypto? Link?

Do the ETFs cointain real BTC or are they just paper BTC, like paper gold?
17  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: December 18, 2018, 06:02:45 PM
If correct we should keep rising, slowly at first, but gaining speed and volume on the way out and see 6k  around Jan 12 2019. The cautious bull herd seems to be taking for granted they will get a nice long year to accumulate cheap coins like 2015 and then they can all be millionaires since they neglected to do this 4 years ago during the last great crypto winter, I dont think this will happen at all. Only 21 million(ok like 17 million) coins and its pretty pie in the sky for everyone to think they are gonna get 12 months of bargain basement prices where they can just casually collect coins for peanuts while fundamentals grow stronger by the day.

Ideal scenario (gently and slowly light up your hopium pipes for this one and take a big inhale)........

after regaining 6k in mid January, Bakt would then usher in another mini bubble to 40k followed by a quick and mild bear season testing 10k again, all before the next halving where the march to 250k starts Kiss

Ive been as bearish as the next guy. However, we should be given pause by the fact that everyone and his shoeshine boy are 100% certain that we're heading to $1,500-$2,500 and will endure 12+ months of crypto winter.

I don't see a long, lull in the market either. Prices are very low already and why should we be so lucky to accumulate cheap coins for 12+ months? Call me crazy, but I see the possibility for a double bubble still occurring in 2019.

You mean first bubble is 6k$ and second 40k$?

Bakkt Futures to Launch on January 24, Presents Milestones Ahead
AUTHOR: GUEST AUTHOR LAST UPDATED ON DEC 14, 2018 @ 20:46 UTC
The owner of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) – the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), announced back in August that it will be launching a global platform and an ecosystem for digital assets called Bakkt. The project is handled in collaboration with marquee companies such as Microsoft, BCG, Starbucks, and others.

Speaking on the matter at the time, CEO Kelly Loeffler said that the platform is expected to launch in November 2018, subject to review and approval by the US Commodity and Futures Trading Commission.

However, in a notice issued on October 22, ICE confirmed that the platform will launch with one month delay, pending approval from US regulators.

In yet another push-back, ICE had posted an update that confirmed the platform will launch on January 24th as a new target date, as well as other updates. The reason for the delay is seemingly the same – regulators are yet to grant their approval.

Bakkt Milestones Ahead Of The Launch
 The latest update from December 12 by ICE comes with a few important milestone targets which the platform should hit before the much-awaited deadline on January 24th.

First and foremost, on December 17th, the team will have the Bitcoin reference data set up and ready for download in production.

Just a day later, on the 18th, the project should have new digital assets multicast channels, while by the 10th of January, the clearing limits can be set up in production.

Also, the recent announcement has also shed some clarity on the matter of trading the daily Bitcoin contracts. ICE outlines how the platform will handle markets for each subsequent day:

Because the Bitcoin product is a daily contract, each day there will be a new market (i.e., market id) that becomes available as tradable on the exchange. Because of this behavior, we will list two subsequent days of markets that will be available in static data, but not tradable.
Bakkt Paves the Way for Institutional Money
According to CEO of LMAX Exchange, David Mercer, Bakkt’s 1-day futures contract which includes physically delivered bitcoin is an incrementally different and particularly important addition that the market has been looking for a long time.

Additionally, CFTC-approved warehousing, as well as, enhanced security and a guarantee fund provides a much-needed custody solution. According to many, Mike Novogratz included, this is what institutional investors are looking for to get involved in the market.

I think the next move up is going to need custody from a trusting source. It’s going to need a little more regulatory clarity. […] We wouldn’t take out $10,000 without those two things because that’s what brings the institutional investors in. But we’re going to get there. – Said Novogratz

https://cryptopotato.com/bakkt-futures-to-launch-on-january-24-presents-milestones-ahead/

Has this anything to do with real crypto or is this just banking cartel fake? They talk about physically delivered Bitcoin. Does that mean Bitcoin or fiat? Is this bakkt good or bad for crypto?

That indicates, that the bottom has been reached about 1 - 1.5 years before halving.

Next halving from here is about 1.5 years away.
20  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: December 10, 2018, 04:03:35 PM


Well, this at least proves that financial problems raise the price of bitcoin.
