1  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Bitvest / lightlord on: October 18, 2021, 06:01:23 PM
We take account security seriously, so it can sometimes take a while to gather and verify information about an account to make sure resetting of PINs, passwords, etc. are only allowed for the rightful owner of the account. This case, in particular, has been resolved at this time.

Sometimes parts of this are done in the background, without immediately replying to the ticket to see if there has possibly been an account compromise, suspicious activity on the account, etc. We'd rather know what we may be dealing with before replying to the ticket just in case.

On June 17, 2020, an exploit was made against how we handle ETH contract deposits. This allowed a user to trick our systems into thinking valid funds were deposited, when in fact, they were transactions that would later become invalid. Multiple deposits were made, and bets were placed with these funds. We have since patched the exploit, so this will not occur again.

The exploit involved many transactions, the majority of the coins were "deposited" with this transaction.

In total, investors received 12.35 ETH in profits, less 0.85 ETH in commissions. A net profit of 11.50 ETH from the fraudulent deposits.

We have rolled back the bets placed with the fraudulent funds and adjusted investor balances accordingly.

Bitvest itself made a small loss from funds that were withdrawn from our wallets. We will be covering this part of the loss out of our pockets.

No user or investor funds are at risk or were ever at risk due to this exploit. It was caught quickly, and the losses mitigated before any losses exceeding the size of our hot wallets occurred.

We are sorry for the lack of attention some manual withdrawals have received lately.

Lightlord and I are currently discussing some changes we will be making to better maintain our standards. For a start, I have updated our admin alert/notification system to send us high priority alerts for any >20 hour old pending transactions. It will notify us periodically for each transaction once it is past due for processing.

I have my lucky seed and I am unable to use it after I change my server seed? Why is that? Seems like a bug, fix this please, does not seem fair. If I have a good client seed, you can't just choose to make me change it!!!

This restriction is in place to prevent a situation where we (the house) could gain an advantage. We could intentionally generate future server seeds for your account that bias results against a previously chosen seed. We could, for example, generate a seed where the first few bets placed with your old or favorite client seed and betting style tend to have a higher chance of resulting in a losing bet. Disallowing reuse of a seed prevents this exploit from being possible.

The message indicating the restriction will be removed is out of date and will be updated shortly.

Why is it that the client seed is randomly changed at times? The client seed should be stateful and should never be updated or changed without the user acknowledging such an action. Even if this is a harmless bug on the casinos end, to the player this raises doubts and suspicion. The whole point of using a client/server seed pair is so that there is a user defined variable in generating the results. When this is switched or updated without the players consent or knowledge, this becomes quite unnerving despite the intentions or lack of.

Please either make the client seed stateful or at the very least warn the user as a notification PRIOR to them playing the next round of a game so that they know their client seed has been switched and needs to be replaced with the old one if they want to continue with the existing seed pair. I don't understand why you guys set it up in the current manner, it doesn't take that much more programming to have the client seed saved unless the user inputs a new one...Many users aren't even aware that their client seed was changed and once you place a bet its too late to go back to the old seed pair. It's even more unnerving to me that there doesn't seem to be a specific action that causes my client seed to be replaced. There are times when I will close my browsers for hours and it will still remain, then other times where I can do a mere refresh of the page and it will be changed. Please fix this asap - It is very difficult for me to deposit real funds into a site that doesn't take this seriously, given that the seed pair is what actually generates the results...

Yes, I know Bitvest has been around for years but that by no means excuses any online crypto casino from following standard operating procedures of a provably fair system.

This is definitely unintended behavior. The last used user seed should be automatically loaded upon logging in (it can take up to 1-2 seconds), and should never change unless the user types in a new seed or presses the randomize button. If anyone can provide me with specific steps to recreate an unintended seed change, I will gladly fix it and pay out a bug bounty. Please make sure to include your browser version and OS.

We are currently offline due to a router fault at our datacenter. More details will be provided as they become available.

Edit: Our server appears to be back online. Our datacenter has not yet confirmed the issue to be fixed though, so we may still have some instability.

Edit: The issue has been resolved, our datacenter had a router fault.

At the heart of Bitvest lies our community, a place where you can have fun, a great experience, and socialize. We strive with enthusiasm to bring forward a pleasant experience for everyone.

We regret that we haven't been able to fully uphold our philosophy and plan on making changes to ensure this doesn't happen again. We want everyone to have a great experience.

I have been preoccupied with developing many features for Bitvest that I have not been able to give the attention as needed. Therefore, we will be expanding our support team later this month and build better tools to manage tickets for a better overall experience.

Our wallet limits were reduced a fair bit due to a recent exploit with Keno, which we covered ourselves for 5 bitcoins in value. We are currently laying down changes, such as a better "cheat detection" system in the backend. This will allow us to restore our higher wallet limits to better service our customers.

We are currently offline as a query to update part of our database is taking longer than expected. We have no solid ETA, but it should be under 30 minutes.

Edit: The operation appears to be nearly complete, ETA is < 15 minutes, likely closer to 5 minutes.

Edit: We're back!

I'm using the Investment feature and so far I am pleased with returns. But I have one question. How does "Margin" work? I know it multiplies your investment so you win/lose more then you should proportionally to other investments. But how does this work economically? How can you pay me for example 10 times more? Where do you take that money from? You can only split the profit from gambling, right?

For simplicity, let's say the bankroll consists of 100 BTC, 550 BTC after margin from 2 investors.

One investor has 50 BTC at 1x margin, the other at 10x margin. Bets would be taken as if the bankroll was 50x1 + 50x10 = 550 BTC. The effective bankroll of 550 BTC is not an issue, since the max that can be won in any situation is around 1-5% of the margin bankroll depending on the game, meaning even if every investor was at the maximum margin, the largest win possible would not be larger than the bankroll, limited to about 10-25% of the real coins backing the bankroll.

If a player won 10 BTC, the investor at 1x margin would pay 50/550 * 10 BTC = 0.909 BTC to the player. The investor at 10x margin would pay 500/550 * 10 BTC = 9.09 BTC.
If a player lost 10 BTC, the investor at 1x margin would earn 50/550 * 10 BTC = 0.909 BTC from the player. The investor at 10x margin would earn 500/550 * 10 BTC = 9.09 BTC.

Can someone help me?  I can't seem to log in to Bitvest anymore.  I type in my username and password, click Sign In, and nothing happens.  It just sits there like I didn't click the button.

Anyone else have this issue?  What can I do?  I can't contact Support on-site, because it says you need to be signed in to do that.
You may email me at zodiac@bitvest.io

This issue is likely caused by script blocking plugins, or an ad blocker having a false positive, or something similar to that. If possible try logging in with plugins disabled, or another browser.

The even-length restrictions will be removed, we may or may not remove the hex character restriction. We've had vulgar content, advertising, etc. thrown into user seeds before limiting it to hex.

Proofs 2.0


Coming Soon: Next week, Bitvest will be updating its proof system to a more modern, and easier to verify nonce based proof system.

In short, you will be able to much more easily validate historical bets you (or others) have made. Technical details of our new proof system are below. We will be providing verification tools and a simpler explanation in the near future in an upcoming blog post.

How it works:
  • We will send you a hash of the server seed we'll use for the next set of bets you make.
  • You (or your browser) will choose a random seed (the "user seed") to use for your bets. Every time you use this seed, the nonce for the seed will be incremented. For example: If you chose the seed "Lucky" your first bet would effectively use the seed "Lucky|0", the next bet "Lucky|1" and so on.
  • At any time you wish, you may change your user seed to a different user seed you have never used before, the nonce will go back to 0, again, incrementing with each bet.
  • When you wish to verify your bets, you may request to see the server seed which was used for your bets, doing so will make all future bets use a new server seed. At this point, you can verify that the hash of this server seed does indeed match the hash provided earlier. You will also be able to verify that the game's result hash matches what you'd expect with the use of your user seed and the server seed provided. At this time, you will be given the hash of the next server seed and you will also be required to change your user seed, as we cannot prove that the new server seed was generated without knowledge of / to take advantage of your current user seed.
  • The resulting hash of each bet will be equal to HMAC_SHA512(ServerSeed,UserSeed|Nonce)

3rd party betting software: Betting tools such as Dicebot are excepted to remain compatible and still be able to place bets. Their verification functions, will, however, require an update to function.

two questions.
1. Why is bitvest no longer in the cgf?
2. Where is doge roulette?

1. They were unable to find the logo on our page and thought we weren't interested in the partnership and removed our logo. To address this, we've made their logo more pronounced by including it on the login screen. We are expecting to be listed on their site again in the near future.

2. Doge roulette will be coming with, or shortly after Keno. There are many issues with the current UI of Roulette that make handling bets of low-value currencies not work.

What happened on September 12 and 13 2018? Based on Dicesites data, https://dicesites.com/bitvest, the casino lost 165 BTC but they were inmediately won back a few days later.

Due to a bug, we were showing profits of currently open investments instead of all investments, historic and open for a few days.

Hi Zodiac, I left you a private message on bitvest but I realize you get tons of messages so perhaps this is the best route. 

Recently while signed in on my laptop I also signed in on my mobile device.  Then I proceeded to change my password from my mobile device. Out of curiosity I decided to try playing what funds I had left on the signed in laptop- I thought it would prompt me to sign in again since I had changed the password just minutes ago on a separate device.  It did not ask for me to sign in again. 

I continued playing and even sent a tip out, from the laptop even though my mobile had successfully changed the password.  In certain circumstances this could have been a devastating blow.  For example if my account was hacked , and the hacker was spending my btc... normally changing a password would kick off the would-be hacker but for some reason, in this circumstance the account was still able to continue spending. 

This seems like a security flaw and hopefully it can be addressed. 

Otherwise, I still love to play at bitvest.

Lorilikes

I have made password changes kick out all active sessions in all cases now. I have also made it auto-set tipping to disabled for additional security.

what: daily quest with bitspin not working properly.

<snip>

edit

what: another error with autobet slots,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_QTtGPczGc

Recorded with a little explanation.

<snip>

supposedly my bet amount would double on win, unfortunately sometimes it does, sometimes it does not.
Worse part was slot:62100572 which made my bet 4000(200<tokens> x 20 <lines>)

Bump and thump!

I've pushed out something which will likely fix the 7x+ quest bug. As for the auto bet issue. I will be looking into this shortly. For now, avoid leaving the autobet tab within bitvest, or switching tabs in your browser. I don't think game speed being changed is its self is the issue.

Is the Dicesites graph correct, did the casino lose so much on December? https://dicesites.com/bitvest

I don't know where your info is coming from but looking at the graphs I don't see any substantial loss in December




in bitcoins at least, there were dips and subsequent peaks September
must have been a whale that got extremely lucky, but then lost it back very soon after


The odd dip in September is an error in the data, nothing eventful or unusual occurred. I do recall a bug that made our total profit display at the time incorrect which is likely why there's an extreme tip there.

As for (very) long term data, going all the way back to the start back to the start. On average 10 BTC invested earns 3.45805826 (+34.58%) BTC in profits per year after commissions are taken away. Real-world profit is a fair bit higher since this doesn't take compound interest into effect. This number is also using the average margin, not the maximum margin.

For LTC going back to the start, 100 LTC invested returns an average of 33.2656361 LTC profits (+33.27%) in a year.
for DOGE doing back to the start, 1,000,000 DOGE invested returns an average of 798,195.899 DOGE profits (+79.82%) in a year.

I'll post more complete data later.

Such a Zodiac-ish answer. The level of faucet gaming you are saying was happening on his accounts is some next level shit. I know this behavior well and it is fun to spot when it's happening here and at other sites. It does not come from high stakes depositing players though. Thanks for discussing the 0-padding better. Sorry to beat a dead horse here but why did the check verification pass?

Will being banned permanently for vulgar language is hard to swallow. Temporary ban is the common for the worst offenders. I can't think of one day where tempers weren't flaring in that chat. Some players are worse than others and some are downright offensive to the point that I want to slap them and teach them some respect. Bitvest has always had the highest tolerance to adults using adult language. High stakes are being won and lost every day and the atmosphere is often times very intense. While I try to maintain a level of respect towards the mods, I have even let my temper get the better of me. I've sent a flurry of vulgar insults to you and Light on multiple occasions. In fact, I've been so mad a few times that I actually tried to get banned. I don't know where I'm going with this so I'll just end it here and say

#FreeWilly

The ban wasn't really intended to be permanent at first, all IP bans just show up that way. We were mainly intending to give it as a "cooling off period" to help calm things down in chat. But it was immediately dodged, and with several accounts in a row at that. At this time I have instructed the mods to not ban will if he's keeping calm and following rules. We typically don't chat ban user's we've faucet banned unless they are also violating our chat rules.

To clarify one of the points I've made several times. We do not know if Will is a part of this abuse at all himself, just someone who had shared his account with him (and the account its self) definitely is.

Regarding the question with the verification passing. There are two important steps to a provably fair result.
1) The result hash of the game matching what you would expect with a given player seed and server seed. We do not store the actual result hashes, but calculate them on demand since that should always work fine.
2) The result hash of the game matching the actual results of the game. In the case of this bet, the verification here (which you need to look at the right half to check) failed due to the 0-padding adding an extra 0 to the user seed, which made a result which appeared to hit a 0 near the middle instead of the 49 which was hit, making this part of the verification fail. With the used seed used correctly (accounting for the 0 padding, and removing the extra 0) both parts of the proof line up as expected.
