1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: 🔥[ANN][BTCU] Bitcoin Ultimatum - a new-generation Bitcoin fork 🚀🚀🚀 on: October 21, 2020, 06:13:50 AM
We appreciate your effort to make btcu a great and successful btc fork, but we would like to ask what you need the binaries for?
Well, you adapted Bitcoin Core RPC commands, although you will replace the consensus rules completely, so I wanted to test them. Of course I would also like to see your GUI and how the other features you announced to implement look like. I would also like to check if you have really taken over the entire Bitcoin block and transaction history, which would mean that creating a blockchain explorer for your coin would require indexing the entire Bitcoin blockchain into a database to enable address lookup and forward lookup of the TxID history. Please note that providing a fully indexed blockchain explorer would result in a local SQL database that is at least twice as large as the full blockchain with tx-index history, which means that the database would require at least around 600 GB of disk space. Please also note that nobody will trust your project if there doesn't exist any blockchain explorer. It should also be clear that you can't run a public main chain without the system ever having been tested in the test net before. To test at least the basic functions I would need a x64-Win setup together with some test coins please (for the readers here: which couldn't be used for the main chain anyway).

Thank you for showing us the "How to become a legendary member": Just continue to publish weekly weapon sales or ads of your private fake exchange in countless parallel threads. And within the years after you have created several thousand contentless postings, you will finally get your "legendary" status!

Just for the records: From the outset, I gave the forum administration one week to deal with the ban request. After new arguments were presented, I gave them another weekend. From now on, the authorities and domain registrars will take over.

Well, I have to mention that of course I didn't browse through the complete posting history of BayAreaCoins when I opened this thread. But just to wrap up the whole case, it's obvious that he started a gun sales business a few years ago, which I completed in my initial posting:

November 27, 2013
[WTS] Guns for sale! Black friday special: 1/2 price shipping! *Pictures here* (Wayback)

At that time he must have had a FFL, otherwise he wouldn't have been able to offer gun sales on a commercial scale. And apparently he created such "sales" every week here on Bitcointalk (which again I didn't look up in his posting history because I just don't have the time):



At some point he most likely had to give back his FFL, but continued to deal in a commercial style:

I do not have and am not required to have an FFL.

As everyone can see in the pictures, the semi-automatic rifles got customized for rapid fire, i.a. with drum magazines with a hundred shots each. Therefore it's clear that this had to be subsumed under AR Code § 5-73-202(2) (2019) (by the way, the subsumption under AR Code § 5-73-202 (2017) wouldn't have changed the legal evaluation). He later confirmed that he also possessed and sold so called bump stocks. Thank you, no further questions!

For those with limited experience with firearms: Bump stocks you get even out of the 3D printer. And as for the "red paintballs", I think you would look forward like a little child to Christmas shooting just once in your life a real machine gun with red tracer ammunition at night. None of you have ever held an ammunition belt in his hands! By the way, please don't bother the FBI, the Arkansas State Police, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the .org TLD Registry, Cloudflare and Namecheap too much with your OT bullshit!

Since you clearly know nothing about firearms, I'll translate it for you.
Oh, thank you very much, I really needed your basics! Apart from the fact that I just don't have the time to read all of your bullshit, I just want to let you know that I'd be too bored to shoot with single-shot rifles. But as soon as you had a real machine gun in your hand, let us know! Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Coming to BayAreaCoins' toys, of cooooooourse his S&W AR-15s rifles with a loaded 100 shot drum on each side are not suitable for rapid fire, and of cooooooourse he has never heard of bump stocks or trigger cranks. By the way, according to 26 USC § 5845(b) second sentence those tools or in such way prepared semi-automatic weapons are considered as machineguns as well, otherwise the legislator wouldn't have explicitly included semi-automatic weapons in AR Code § 5-73-202(2). And even if BayAreaCoins got the civilian version of the IWI Tavor X95, he will of course need a 1000 cartridges package, because he will only use it in single shot mode. Yeeeeey! You would definitely be the best lawyer in case of a trial in a criminal court! Furthermore, according to the legal text, an offensive or aggressive purpose is given if loaded magazines are “in the immediate vicinity of the machine gun”. And nobody wants to tell me that BayAreaCoins loaded his drums with 400 rounds only for taking pictures. Go home and tell these stories to your grandma!

As for Twitter, I'm glad I don't have any direct followers, because this way I can send as many tweets to multiple recipients as I want without upsetting my followers. And I think 2590 views within 12 days (I recently created the account) is not that bad:

As we can see nullius thinks that Bitcointalk would be a windmill. Well, to evaluate it legally: Bitcointalk is nothing! It's a forum of an actual anonymous domain holder for anonymous members, missing any legally responsible imprint, registered at namecheap.com. But - of cooooourse compleeeeetely legally - military weapon deals are taking place here. Okay, we got his argumentation! Nobody out there takes care of the continuous troll postings here. BTW, the domain owner, most likely the valued member theymos, is now also target of the investigations!

I strongly advise that you hire a competent attorney to defend you.
Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Because you haven’t even the slightest idea about how even to read a statute within its four corners, let alone how to navigate the complexities of the law.  Also, by the way, actual lawyers hate Wikipedia legal arguments; be guided accordingly.
One shouldn't conclude from oneself to others. Nullius' argumentation lacks basic legal knowledge, not to mention concrete legislative text, law commentaries or supreme court case law. Since he has run out of arguments he throws around with worthless smoke candles. The typical behavior of legal laymen. BTW, the Arkansas Code has not been cited from Wikipedia. But the general public thanks him for revealing that he failed with his amateurish interpretation of the law. Backing it up with ridiculous graphics doesn't make the whole thing better.

Is he really harassing you, or is he only harassing you because you are harassing him? Regardless, that's not how the forum works, and the rules say nothing about getting banned for weapons sales. So, you're simply wrong here.
Please note my initial posting where I quoted continuous harassment of several members and such accusations from other members. You won't find any harassment from my side. I gave BayAreaCoins several warnings to stop, as linked from the Namecoin thread, but he continued. So this thread is the logical consequence with all consequences out of this forum he has to face now!

Alternatively, the entire forum has to be closed.
No, it doesn't. Nobody is going to buckle to your demands, sorry. You're on your own here.
We'll see! Unfortunately I was too busy for further reports. Until now.

Well, I'm sure the worldwide authorities and especially the .org TLD registry will be interested about ongoing unregulated weapon deals here on Bitcointalk what is normally stuff for the darknet. This was not a warning. This was an announcement.

I'll be back!

He's not the only one. There's a lot of people here that have mental health problems. However, that's not grounds for banning.
I really appreciate your opinion, but the continuous cyber harassment by this member together with the abuse of this forum for military weapon deals is enough for a permanent ban. Alternatively, the entire forum has to be closed.

You don't seem to understand the political nature of the forum: it follows a very laissez-faire and basic implementation of Libertarianism, which basically says that anything goes (so long as laws aren't being broken, and even then really only U.S. laws are of concern).
This forum offers the same conditions and possibilities for the compliance with the world-wide laws, as the Darknet: Namely none at all!

OK so you reported him to the "authorities" already. No need to keep bringing it up every day. Your obsession with BAC isn't healthy...
I'm just responding to incoming postings. Nothing more. A sign of an unhealthy psyche would be to leave the field to the trolls.

you should stick to harassing actual scammers on the forum, of which there are plenty.
To be honest, those fakes and scams that take place here on Bitcointalk are ridiculous compared to the really relevant cases: Such as ongoing military weapon deals! And please don't tell me that this would just be the American way of life, what it isn't!

Unfooooortunately, nullius' skills are too limited to make a proper legal assessment of the case, even though he seems to have a lot of free time. His activity as a hobby lawyer has failed. Perhaps he should study the Assault weapons legislation in the United States at first. Furthermore, he might study the Arkansas Code before talking more bullshit. I will now make the relevant citations for him:

Quote
AR Code § 5-73-202(2) (2019)
“Machine gun” means a weapon of any description by whatever name known, loaded or unloaded, from which more than five (5) shots or bullets may be rapidly, or automatically, or semi-automatically, discharged from a magazine, by a single function of the firing device

AR Code § 5-73-205(a4) (2017)
Possession or use of a machine gun is presumed to be for an offensive or aggressive purpose: When empty or loaded pistol shells of 30 (.30 in. or 7.63 mm.) or larger caliber which have been or are susceptible of use in the machine gun are found in the immediate vicinity of the machine gun.

AR Code § 5-73-204 (2017)
Possession or use of a machine gun for offensive or aggressive purpose is declared to be a crime punishable by imprisonment in the state penitentiary for a term of not less than ten (10) years.

Now we come to the nice weapon deals BayAreaCoins is offering here. As one can see all the guns are kept loaded (which is not good for the magazine springs, by the way):





Now you can come back again waving the phrase "FFL to FFL", but the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the FBI, and the Arkansas State Police don't give a damn about your limited abilities as a hobby lawyer! Onlookers here can only conclude that the dealer offering these military weapons on a crypto forum must have mental health problems, as must all his supporters here. Evaluated together with the documented continuous cyber harassment by the dealer, this was a clear case that had to be reported to the above mentioned authorities.
11  Economy / Reputation / Re: Request for permanent ban of user BayAreaCoins on: October 17, 2020, 09:11:42 AM
I don't want to disturb the circle of toxic users here, but for all readers here a clarification: As linked by one of the above mentioned members, the FFL is a Federal Firearms License. The phrase “from FFL to FFL” most likely means “from authorized weapon dealer to authorized weapon dealer”. But as I have already mentioned, there are several points to consider from a legal point of view. In particular, a crypto platform is not intended for weapons deals. This is without doubt a clear abuse of the original Bitcoin forum created by Satoshi Nakamoto. A gun sales portal, with which this crypto forum was compared here, would most likely ensure that the members would get fully verified if it were a reputable portal. Here at Bitcointalk, all members are anonymous. Even if both parties agree to speak publicly from “FFL to FFL”, this cannot be controlled in any way, especially since the reported user BayAreaCoins himself says that this is only “strongly preferred”, but not essential:

FFL to FFL is strongly preferred.

Anyway, since the weapon deals here are running in a legally completely unregulated way, the next point is that the regularly offered deals here are running in a commercial style, as I said before, especially since the seller did not just “occasionally” sell an used 7.65 PPK. For these commercial activities he needs a FFL himself, which he doesn't have:

I do not have and am not required to have an FFL.

He sold new assault rifles with a thousand rounds of ammunition and was undoubtedly in a position to facilitate international terrorism. Note in this context his “discount” of 10 % for all Muslims:

10% off for all our muslim friends in the USA

Even his additional alibi statement “as you pink promise you won't use them to exterminate Christians someday” offers no certainty that he would not supply assault rifles to Islamists planning their next terror act. If someone from the outside reads these ongoing arms deals, he clearly comes to the conclusion that there is something wrong with both the weapon dealer and this forum here! And since this whole mob of toxic users has not been taught the necessary legal knowledge, not to mention respect and decency, I will now teach each of them these missing skills!

I'll be back!

Just for the records:

https://youtu.be/zIjZMfANzTM - Introduction of BTCU at the World Blockchain Hackaton.
Andriy Saranenko was talking there that they are still looking for code reviewers and support. He linked to his GitHub Wiki where I can find the wallet start commands as well as the API-Calls-List. So please tell me how I ever should test the whole thing as there are still no releases published? If you really want to present something at least running on a test net it seems everything to be in a early stage development, nobody has ever been testing it. You are far away from getting it running to the public on October the 27th of 2020 as pronounced publically! Unfortunately nobody of the Bitcoin Core coders was willing to take even a look at it, so I thought why not just to test it. You don't want to say that I have to create the binaries myself for testing it on a x64 Windows platform? I won't do this! Most likely this was the reason you gave up your original posting where you announced a public operation for October the 27th? You have at least one master node running for getting connected to a real test chain? Please note that I seem to be the only one who would be willing to test the whole thing here, so please think well about your answer!

You forget again to mention that your token is worth absolutely nothing due to missing ITO. Stop fooling and scamming the community!

Together with the famous and popular Coinsbit exchange, we are running a SPECIAL PARTNERSHIP PROMOTION !!!
Why are you shouting it around here? I thought the name of the BTCU coin has nothing to do with the Coinsbit exchange? Well, everyone can here enjoy the meanwhile deleted conversation with iGO_Tech from the beginning until the end! Grin Grin Grin

BTW: You forget to mention in your announcement quoted above that your fake BTCU coins as well as your newly promoted CBU token are worth absolutely nothing! This is a kind of fraud attempt as well in urging your victims to take over your promotion in making false promises and phantasy value data! Therefore as reminder:
