Nice finds.

Man, if Google could lay claim to bitcoin and the blockchain, that would be very interesting to watch. We'd find out how decentralized bitcoin could really be!
2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Who do you think is Satoshi Nakamoto? on: September 06, 2017, 06:36:02 PM
I always thought that satoshi nakamoto is the one who does all the work for everyone because now has given a lot of work for the unemployed,
and adds substantial income to all of us
Because I think the creation of bitcoin by satoshi nakamoto has changed everything, and I do not forget the others who have developed bitcoin so far.

What? Unemployed? Wtf are you talking about?
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Craig W. only claims to be Satoshi, because he knows the real Satoshi is dead? on: August 24, 2017, 05:40:25 AM
Just an idea. If Craig Wright is NOT Satoshi Nakamoto, he would definitely risk the real Satoshi come up with a proof, that Craig is not SN. Is it possible, that CW explicitly knows about the death of the person behind SN, so he can make his claims without backing them up with a proof?  Roll Eyes
No, he knows that Satoshi Nakamoto, whoever they are, would not risk communicating with the world ever again. (its kinda obvious why)

To me it's not obvious. Please explain.
Well according to some blockchain analysts, Satoshi is sitting on billions of US dollars worth of Bitcoin.
If I was them, I wouldn't risk any possibility of being traced. This includes making a post on the internet or really doing anything online that involves that username.
Those coins were worth like 30 cents each when he decided to abandon the Satoshi alias. So your theory makes zero sense.
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: New Satoshi Emails on: August 16, 2017, 09:38:56 PM
If these are legit, it would be a confirmation that Satoshi mined the block #5326, as block reward from that block is sent by Satoshi to Mike Hearn.

Mike: I sent you 32.51 coins, my bitcoin address is 1JuEjh9znXwqsy5RrnKqgzqY4Ldg7rnj5n

Satoshi: I sent back 32.51 and 50.00. (https://blockchain.info/address/1JuEjh9znXwqsy5RrnKqgzqY4Ldg7rnj5n)

This is interesting, because if you go back to the old ExtraNonce analysis by Sergio (https://bitslog.wordpress.com/2013/04/17/the-well-deserved-fortune-of-satoshi-nakamoto/), block #5326 fits the pattern of this early miner with a distinct ExtraNonce pattern, and would be the first (?) direct evidence, that this miner was in fact Satoshi.

Mike Hearn, Jan 24, 2016:
Quote
"I will no longer be taking part in Bitcoin development and have sold all my coins." from https://blog.plan99.net/the-resolution-of-the-bitcoin-experiment-dabb30201f7

Yet the 1JuEj..j5n address still has 82.51BTC in it https://blockexplorer.com/address/1JuEjh9znXwqsy5RrnKqgzqY4Ldg7rnj5n, currently worth about a quarter million dollars.  Ya think Hearn lost the key to it then?  That would be something...  Or, it's all a ruse and that address isn't Hearn's, or something else?

Mike admitted to losing the keys, see the reddit thread below in my previous post.
Im skeptical, but they probably are real. I wish hearn had published them prior to his exit from bitcoin and the development team as a whole.

Mike did show up in the reddit thread created by OP and vouched for the validity of them.

Nice deflection Mike.

7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Hacker tells Bitcoin creator, 'You are not safe. Get out.' on: August 09, 2017, 05:08:16 AM
The only first-hand verification of the hack comes from Michael Marquardt, a member of the Bitcointalk.org forum. He sent Nakamoto some emails in March of 2014. Marquardt says that Jeffrey shared with him excerpts of those emails, and the only way he could have gotten them is from inside the encrypted account.

"I'm pretty sure," Marquardt said, "that this is just some troll in it for the laughs."

So what kind of emails theymos sent to Satoshi in March of 2014 ? Like notice his bitcointalk account is frozen to prevent abuse in the case of hack ?

So, how did you come to the conclusion that it was Theymos? Any proof to that effect? Anyway, I really don't see any difference it will make now getting to discover who Satoshi Nakamoto is except to endanger his life. His discovery won't in any way aid the upward movement of Bitcoin. He won't even last a week if people get to know his identity as definitely someone would want to hack him to death just to prey his keys out of him.
Do you not know who theymos is?
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Why Satoshi... ? on: March 24, 2017, 06:24:02 PM
Bitcoin is a really popular and there are lot of problems that made the bitcoin stronger and more popular, still no Satoshi Nakamoto appeared. I think he is now just enjoying the fact that everyone is using his digital currency, I think he still cares about his digital currency, we just dont know that for sure, but I think, he is just there.

By "everyone" you mean less than 1% of the worlds population, right?
9  Other / Meta / Re: Hal Finney, a ghost? on: March 10, 2017, 04:48:06 AM
It was already requested by users to block Hal Finneys account. Let's not forget that this forum suffered from a massive hack and the passwords got bought in the dark web I think.
I don't it would be a hacker.Had it been one of the attacks due to password breaches,theymos would block the account instantly and or change the details so hacker couldn't use it anymore.
Worst case scenario,Hal's son would have contacted theymos privately and on certain conditions would have gained access back to his Father's account which is completely normal.

Definitely a hacker or well someone who bought the hacked passwords. Check out all these accounts and their last active:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=2708
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=2721
They were all last active on Feb 19th, but dormant before that. There is probably more breached accounts but I don't feel like looking right now.

This account was last active Feb 28
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=2706

Looks like the hacker had the same thought I had; Satoshi possibly created a new account either right before he last signed off or shortly after. The hacker was probably looking for a PM or email address that would lead to Satoshi or just some kind of clue.

10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is it possible to hack BTC on that address only by knowing the bitcoin address? on: February 19, 2017, 02:55:03 AM
- snip -
How can a hacker attack this address? There is no other information. There's only address information and bitcoin amount.
This is actually very easy. 

1) buy a pretty good quality computer.
- snip -
Vanitygen guesses millions of times per second.  With enough seconds, it is not impossible. 
Lol I love your word soon...
- snip -
So yeah if several thousand of years is soon for you, sure start it now Wink
I said you have to buy a 'good quality computer'.
- snip -

Yes.  You said "good quality computer."

You also said "millions of times per second."

It is reasonable to assume that millions of times per second means less than 1,000,000,000 per second.

If you can guess 1,000,000,000 per second:

  • It will take you less than 1 second        to try 229 keys.
  • It will take you less than 1 minute         to try 235 keys.
  • It will take you less than 1 hour            to try 241 keys.
  • It will take you less than 1 day              to try 246 keys.
  • It will take you less than 1 week            to try 249 keys.
  • It will take you less than 1 month          to try 252 keys.
  • It will take you less than 1 year             to try 254 keys.
  • It will take you less than 1 decade          to try 258 keys.
  • It will take you less than 1 century         to try 261 keys.
  • It will take you less than 1 millennium    to try 264 keys.
  • It will take you less than 10 billion years to try 288 keys.
  • It will take you MORE THAN 13.2 BILLION YEARS to try 289 keys.

The universe is estimated to only be 13.2 billion years old right now.

So if you started at the big bang, and continuously generated 1 billion addresses per second, right now you still wouldn't have generated even one billionth of one percent of all the possible addresses.  Odds are nearly certain that you still wouldn't have found the private key for the address you started with.



Don't forget about luck. It would be 13.2 billion years if in the very last second of that 13.2 billion years and you happened across the correct private key. In reality, you would come across it sometime sooner, right?

Side thought, what is stopping people from importing random bitcoin private keys at a mass rate. With the growing number of users and addresses used, at some point they would get lucky with that too, right?
11  Other / Meta / Re: Petition to permanently block Hal's account on: February 13, 2017, 06:19:07 AM
It was probably an admin here or someone who bought everyone's hacked passwords off the darknet.
12  Other / Meta / Re: Petition to permanently block Hal's account on: February 13, 2017, 06:17:39 AM
The admin has to lock his account to prevent someone from using it and can be released only by the request of his family members and when i checked it says that his account has recently changed password and i am sure it is a breach unless it is said otherwise by the admin.

Hal said his family members were tech savvy, and that he left some Bitcoins for them in bank vaults. Any of them could probably prove they are related to Hal by signing a message from an old Bitcoin address known to belong to Hal. His account should be locked until a family member contacts theymos or a staff member.
I think he and or his wife stated that they had cashed out all the bitcoins to pay for his health care.
13  Bitcoin / Press / Re: [2017-02-12] Hal Finney’s Bitcointalk Password Changed After 4 Years Inactivity on: February 13, 2017, 05:14:16 AM
I find it hard to believe that someone figured out Hal's password. Unless Hal left it to a family member, I am guessing an admin here accessed the account and changed the password.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is there a chance Satoshi is dead? Car accident, heart failure, ect on: February 09, 2017, 06:12:34 AM
We know Hal Finney was involved with Bitcoin in the early days and we know he died. I think Satoshi and Finney worked together on Bitcoin and when Finney died and Gavin was approached by the government, Satoshi got spooked. The private keys for those coins was recorded, but it was worth a few pennies and they did not bother to keep it, because it was seen as part of a experiment.

The Satoshi millions are lost forever ^smile^
Finney died like in 2014 and Satoshi went silent here in December of 2010 and through email in like April 2011. Gavin said the last email he sent was telling Satoshi that he was speaking to the CIA or something. That could've spooked him. It also could've been the out Satoshi was looking for, everyone will think he was spooked and not rally against him leaving.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Adam Back thinks he is the inventor of Bitcoin on: February 08, 2017, 06:19:07 AM
Actually there are two laughable elements in your post..First is definitely Adam. Lately so many people is claiming himself as Satoshi Nakamoto which is hilarious and Adam is no exception. They are just trying to draw mass attention. But they are unaware that it could land him to jail.

Second element is that you claim Mr. Wright is the inventor of bitcoin. Till date we didn't see any solid proof that honors him with the title of the creator of bitcoin. It is just another claim but stronger than others. My suggestion is that, leave Mr. Nakamoto in peace and enjoy the power of bitcoin. Let Mr. Nakamoto live in peace for the rest of his life and lets not disturb him in any way.   
Besides Craig Wright, who is claiming themselves to be Satoshi Nakamoto? I haven't seen these claims. I have seen others claiming they think someone else is, but not self claims.
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: John Nash created bitcoin on: February 03, 2017, 06:33:28 AM

I may understand some of your words, basically what's doing by john nash is a theory and no more. there is nothing were linking into bitcoin. John nash has encouraged the basic idea of the decentralised computing, but he was never pushing it to be the real form.  Shocked
You haven't read anything and you clearly aren't strong with the english language.  John Nash spent 20 years defining the intricate details of how and international e-currency with a stably issued supply would arise to usurp the central banks control over our money quality.  20 years he spoke and wrote and you just made an ignorant comment against his works which you have no clue even exists.

He encouraged the idea of decentralized computing?  This was essentially before computing existed nearly 70 years ago when he was barely in his 20's.

I showed he had all the components needed to realize bitcoin and I showed that his paranoia was really him coming up with the idea for ideal money, causing him to flee the US. And that the government DID come after him.

You say there is nothing connecting him?  Wtf is connecting Craig Wright, other than outrageous claim after outrageous claim from something who has a wholly opposite demeanor than Satoshi and the FACT that he doesn't understand the limits of pgp cryptography?

How is it that a man that spent 20 years talking about an international e-currency and how the parameters need to be chosen for it to be come relevant, is seen as so irrelevant that its not even worth reading his argument, and a pyschopath who consistently and constantly say things that are clearly unfounded and go against conventional economics is rather see as your savior?
You provide zero evidence of anything linking him to Bitcoin or its technical concepts. Your entire post is based on your interpretation of the word "ideal", which you have completely wrong. Oh wait, he talks about e-currency or something similar like 1000's of other people over the past 20 years. I have to admit picturing an old man like John Nash hovering over his keyboard on this forum for over year is fucking hilarious. Your idiocy is quite entertaining.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: John Nash created bitcoin on: February 02, 2017, 11:21:45 PM


boring reply where all you are saying effectively is "click the link"
typical clickbait

now i see why you have no clue. you dont even read your own post to realise you yourself are not showing any proof on this forum that this topic has merit.
why even bother going to your clickbait repeatedly. if what it says has already been said before you even said it.. by other people.

i dont need to read it multiple times.. the article has NO merit. and is just meaningless clickbait.
move on with your life and get a real job instead of trying to gather pennies with click bait empty material.
It's amazing the time you waste talking about something you clearly have chosen to remain ignorant about.  That me posting a link of the most compressed version of the story I explain, makes it "clickbait" because you deem it not worthy even though you haven't read it, is the most trollish action I could possibly think of.

You are literally doing nothing but trolling in this thread.  I posted my argument, its there to be refuted, but no one has, and no one can because its founded. Every claim I make is backed up with a credible source.
It's total clickbait and a stupid and retarded theory that has no merit in reality. If it wasn't clickbait you would post your findings here. In fact, I would bet that you've spewed more shit in this thread about how everyone should click your stupid link than what you've wrote in that link.
If you want to show your point, type it out here. Dont send people to a site they don't want to visit and then tell them they are ignorant for not giving you clicks. Try articulating you point on the forum, you know, the forum where you can type shit out to make a point or post an opinion.

It'd be good if an admin from Poloniex communicate in here about it.
on twitter they said will fix this problem soon and all funds are safe. maybe we can just wait untill they fiinish to fix this problem ,
honestly i'm worry too about my money

I'm more worried that my positions are losing fucking money and I can't close them. WTF?
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: BitShares Scam 2.0, another money grab. on: January 01, 2016, 06:17:20 PM
Well, they are at it again and again and again. The only thing they seem to be consistent in is trying to pilfer more money off their delusional base.

They asked for $45K in cash to implement "stealth transfers" in BTS 2.0. Some poor schmuck over there decided he would give them $45K of his own money if he could recoup it in stealth transfer fee. (Although I suspect it may be a rouse. They have some "plant" offer up his money in hopes that it "inspires" the people with actual money to hand it over.)

Now they are asking for $70K per month, PER MONTH to finish the decentralized exchange. For those of you who don't know Bitshares was sold as a decentralized exchange over two years ago to original investors who gave them Millions of dollars. They are now holding the original idea hostage to get more money. These fucking guys are amazing.
