1  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: What kinda documents need for Open crypto exchange? on: Today at 05:29:11 AM
Number one problem you'll face is banks closing your accounts, look where currently functioning exchanges have registered their businesses, in the EU Malta is probably the safest country nowadays. Of course you still have to ask your users to go through KYC, but that's unavoidable.

I also tried all of them, and my computer was infected with each of these Antivirus programs installed. To protect yourself from Trojans and hackers, you should use a complex password (really complex!) and two-factor authentication during registration. A good antivirus will not hurt, but this stuff will not protect you for 100%. Therefore, you should not keep all the savings on the exchange - it is not safe.

2FA won't help you if your malware-infected computer sees the TOTP key when you first activate 2FA on your cryptocurrency exchange account, same with complex passwords. Minimize your attack surface and think before you click something, too.

Bo jakoś mamy wrażenie, że co najmniej część posłów nie umie korzystać z komputera czy smartfona (obawiając się, że oślepi ich laser albo wciągnie do portu usb), a mają decydować o przełomowych technologiach typu blockchain.

Posłowie zdają się reprezentować, przynajmniej mentalnie, przekrój społeczeństwa osób w ich wieku, mająca największą władzę w państwie, tzw. Szeregowy Poseł nawet nie korzysta z komputera, o smartfonach nie wspominając.
4  Economy / Exchanges / Re: Coinbase UK Agrees to Return 60 BTC to Victim of Email Phishing Attack on: September 16, 2019, 10:24:25 PM
is the victim was duped into sending 80 BTC to the hacker's wallet. from that 80 BTC, the hacker then sent 60 BTC to coinbase. pretty dumb move since coinbase mandates KYC. did he never hear of a mixer, coinjoin, etc to break the chain from the spear phishing attack?

My guess is they knew what they were doing, they probably wanted to use someone else's Coinbase and bank accounts, but this time Coinbase actually reacted in a timely manner to a customer support request and prevented the thief from cashing out.

Errr wait, that is not totally true. 25% of my merits come from deleted messages, that's a lot. But the real comment should be"...that are now deleted or off-limit (Staff Section)".

That or the posts may be located in the Donator/VIP section. Admins can see deleted posts, mods can see Trashcanned topic and posts within these topics.

W dodatku stawia to znane i popularne krypto rozwijające swoje tryby prywatności (jak Litecoin, a nawet Bitcoin) w sytuacji zmuszającej do rezygnacji z nowej funkcjonalności.

Bitcoin sam w sobie nie wprowadza nic co by zwiększało obciążenie sieci/wpływało na decentralizacje (transakcje XMR i ZEC są wielokrotnie większe), nie przeszkadza to jednak każdemu innemu nad tworzeniem i korzystaniem z rozwiązań typu wasabi czy joinmarket.
7  Local / Alternatywne kryptowaluty / Re: Proof of Stake - Dochodowe projekty, które możesz kopać tą metodą on: September 15, 2019, 10:20:54 PM
Zacząć kopać POW możesz z zerowym kapitałem. Sam w zimie na swoim PC kopię jakieś grosze (skoro komputer i tak pracuje cały dzień to niech przy okazji kopie) bo korzystam z wartości dodanej jaką jest darmowe ciepło w pokoju.

Ma to sens pod warunkiem, że zarobek przewyższa różnicę między ogrzewaniem na prąd, a ogrzewaniem z innych źródeł. Spadek wartości sprzętu też trzeba uwzgędnić w opłacalności.

I remember the good times where I actually looked up to him for everything he did for Bitcoin. He ruined it for himself.

Same here, I also used to like him, even if labeling him 'Bitcoin Jesus' was a bit too much for me. The sad thing is, because he's so strongly invested in promoting BCH/trashing BTC, he's unlikely to change his course anytime soon even if doubt starts creeping into his mind, just think of all the bagholders when the price crashes if Roger Ver decides to abandon bcash.

I do not understand this licensing thing.
A crypto based online casino or sportsbook should be free from licensing and all those centralized powers. We already have a community and it can starts from here. I have seen several gambling sites without a real license but established now. As long as you are providing good service and abide by community commonsense then a crypto based gambling site should be fine.

Easier to spend money if you can prove where it comes from (a legal business), especially with how much money some casino owners are making yearly.
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Fake trade volumes on: September 14, 2019, 11:10:44 PM
Coins themselves almost never do it.
The listing on CMC also in 99% of time gets you nowhere, noone is noticng the bottom 2000 coins , only if they are heavily manipulated.

Exchanges fake volumes to get higher in some lists as in CMC exchange list to get more attention and customers.

Coin/token teams also have incentives to pump fake volume, making it easier for them to cash out as increased volume lures others into buying/hodling the coin/token in question:

Wątek może zostać, jest to ważna wydarzenie, inny rząd może oznaczać inną politykę ws. kryptowalut i inni urzędnicy z politycznego nadania, choć akurat w przypadku takiego KNF niekoniecznie (jest wąska liczba powodów, które pozwalają premierowi na zmianę przewodniczącego).

As far as I remember all he did was sell flash powder based firecrackers on eBay, i.e. potassium (per)chlorate + aluminium, something even kids play around with, and some are making him out as if he sold octogen to terrorists. Maybe he shouldn't have stored it in his apartment building but prison time seems excessive.
14  Other / Meta / Re: [Suggestion] Troll Score on: September 14, 2019, 04:57:26 PM
I support your suggestion, because troll is not allowed, but I still see some users continously troll over years, and it seems they have not yet get any kind of bans (as I know). Not sure what happened more than 2 years ago with trollers, but last 2 years, I have not seen trollers got ban (by their trolling, not from plagiarism or spam, eg.)

It happens, but it's rare, only the most disruptive of trolls end up with permabans, even temp bans aren't very common.



Yeah, I really wasn't a fan of this, though it was at least some barometer for trolls, but it was also abused or could give the wrong impression. Back in the day people used to use the ignore button if they didn't like what you were saying or just because you were on a signature campaign and they'd be open about telling you that. People shouldn't be lit up like trolls just because someone doesn't like what you're saying. How many of us would be marked as trolls just because there's certain people who don't like you or have a few alts they can do the same on just to try impact you negatively. By all means, use the ignore button if you don't want to see what certain people are saying but that shouldn't effect how others perceive you.

A very tiny percentage of all users were marked as trolls, because the highlight appeared only if enough of "very-established users" ignored them, how many people back then had alts active enough to have their ignores count?

You're very established if:
- You have 100+ hours of online time
- You have 100+ posts
- You registered 30+ days ago

There are ~1414 very-established users right now.

The change only shows up in the default theme.

As the number of users, and by extension the number of very-established users grew, the only way for trolls to keep being marked was to keep engaging in trollish behaviours. Every 500 posts someone made would also decrease his ignore count by 1.

Theymos also said he'd ban anyone trying to farm accounts for the purpose of ignoring someone they didn't like with more very-established accounts.
15  Economy / Exchanges / Re: URGENT: MTGOX creditors need assistance - Looking for Russian Speakers on: September 14, 2019, 12:51:48 AM
If you are in concurrence that government officials will be bribed to recover the money, I am not sure why you are promoting this law firm...

Hey, if it gets a result then why not? I'd be amazed if it does but I get the impression that in Russia you need to murder three people and pay off four or five others just to get your hands on a quality roll of toilet paper.  

With the amount of money involved, (if it's not a scam, and it probably is) there might not be another way, everyone wants their cut.
16  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: The Hottest Commodity: Virgin Bitcoin on: September 13, 2019, 11:57:38 PM
It's not Cointelegraph. I've heard about this phenomenon for at least a few years. There are/were services like Mint that would procure virgin bitcoins for a premium.

Investing in a mining operation is risky, and mining has a time cost vs. buying OTC. They could end up losing more than 10% taking that route.

Paying that premium seems crazy to people like us of course, but I get why some investors would do it: They can afford to, and the 10% premium is nothing to them vs. the potential headache if they end up with questionably sourced bitcoins from the OTC market.

No, I meant about hedge funds and the like being willing to pay such high premiums. The idea of virgin bitcoins themselves is older than that article, but 2-3% is the maximum reasonable fee, 10% or more is what I'd expect criminals being willing to pay.

Starting a PPS mining pool paying 105% isn't risky and people will quickly line up to sign up even if the variance would be high initially. Mining contracts could be used to jump-start the pool and lower the variance before enough people join.
17  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: The Hottest Commodity: Virgin Bitcoin on: September 13, 2019, 11:22:17 PM
Very interesting article, surprisingly.  Grin using

But not sure of the relevance, in most cases the buyer will be able to send those cryptos to non regulated exchange or exchange them using other means.
This becomes more relevant if some one wants to hold them for a very long time. Than again , I dont understand why it is better than the same interested person going to regulated exchange, buying some btc and sending them to wallet...


Neither do I, tbh, especially since the coins they're buying might as well have been mined by North Koreans evading sanctions. I don't see why hedge funds which are mentioned in the article would want to pay a premium as high as 10%. Starting/joining a PPS pool would make more sense from a financial standpoint. It could also be Cointelegraph not doing their research before publishing another article...

The devil is in the details, the differences between different jurisdictions are considerable enough that what in one country will be a legal sting, in another will be an illegal entrapment, or looked at as manufacturing criminals.

Anti-virus use on Windows is perfect. Antivirus is usually not used on Mac or Apple. However, it should be used on a normal computer. Because the malaria virus can damage at any moment.
Ubuntu also don’t need extra protection , am I right? I just want to install it.

Ubuntu (or any other operating system, really), isn't immune against malware (even if due to lower install base not as much is written as for Windows), 0days, exploits against the system or any of its components or installed software, and you can still get phished if you don't look carefully where you log in.
