I have suggested all along that signatures should only be available to members and above.
It should actually be Members who earned 10 Merits and above... Not airdropped Merits. most of those with Airdropped merits still don't have any good content their posts.

Whether he introduces it or not... we don't really care anymore. These social media platforms really acted like bitches last time out when they decided to ban cryptocurrency ads on their platforms.

Alright mate, Thanks for taking your time to explain. I now don't have to scratch my head over 51% attack.
Cheers and have a good day  Smiley

Thanks for the clearcut explaination.
So it got me thinking, Can't this kind of attack happen at the mining pool level? Let say a certain pool of miners has more than 51% of the mining power ( which usually is very likely with certain new blockchains) and they decided to carry out the attack or it just has to done by an individual miner who thinks his mining power is more than 51%?
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Question on 51% attack on: December 23, 2018, 02:32:58 AM
I don't know whether am on the right board but I need some little help to grasp something.
I have been trying to read about the 51% attack but am having a hard time to understand the part where the attacker can "double spend the coins"

So in a layman's language
1.  What is a 51% attack on the blockchain?
2.  What would happen if someone managed to pull this off say on the bitcoin network?

Anybody well informed about this, I will appreciate your time and help.
7  Economy / Exchanges / Re: Coinbase rewarding users in 0x coins for reading educational content on: December 23, 2018, 01:52:43 AM
For me, you don't really have to pay for these lessons, or seek for 'lessons that pay' if you really want to know about crypto. A simple research IMO is already sufficient to enrich one's knowledge without the false promise of getting something in return. These promotions are just like free trials that asks for your credit card that will bill you once the free trial is expired.
Agreed, this is the sad truth.
Lately, it's all about money from the never-ending greedy chaps, Coinbase, in particular, used to so rigid even when listing coins. To them, it was like they had achieved everything they had ever wanted. And then came more flexible and friendly exchanges Like Binance, People migrated... This plus the current market condition has made coinbase to succumb to pressure.

So they are looking for all ways of attracting users back to their platforms and then start charging them right after. The same can be said of the Blockchain wallet with their current Stellar Airdrops. They lost the battle a long time ago.

The Mistake is on you. You should have deleted or at least shown that you were no longer providing the service updating the thread and locking it. I see the thread is even self-moderated. Probably to delete posts of complainants?

But then again, it's up to you now... Look them up and settle the issue then convince them to get back here to get scam accusation reversed Otherwise it looks like the negative trust will stay if you don't do anything.


I never deleted posts lol.
I said i can refund them but they are away.... Can't even asnwer on messages.


How did you guys get in touch with each other in order to ensure that the trade went on well?

No Email or other forms of contact? Because it looks to me the users created Bitcointalk accounts to complain once they realized the product was not working

And FYI, in case you are wondering how they got to your thread, Well the magic is Google search. In case I want a specific crack key to certain software, I just have to google and it will lead me right to your advert thread on Bitcointalk so I encourage to update the thread, lock it or delete it.

A) How do we know the amount is what we want to send?

I Usually use the conversion tools like this awesome coinmarkrtcap tool; https://coinmarketcap.com/converter/btc/usd/  to estimate the amount of BTC am going to send corresponding to the USD value of the package on the service site

If the BTC value is the actual value or almost the same value to some decimals as the one that has been read by the coinbase QR code, then I can go ahead and confirm the transaction.

B) How do we know that the money is going to who we think it is going to?

First, we get to check, the deposit BTC address on the service... We check and compare letter to letter or number to number to the address shown after scanning with the QR Code reader on the Coinbase app, If there is a perfect match better the addresses then we can go ahead and confirm the transactions

QR Code scanning using the coinbase app is actually safer compared to copying the address from the website and pasting it into the app. There have been cases of users getting their notepads hijacked by malware which changes the BTC coin addresses. When the victim copies the depositing addresses from the website, the malware simply changes the address to a different depositing address. If the unsuspecting victim is not vigilant enough and confirms sending the BTC without thoroughly checking the addresses, He loses his funds to the hacker.

One year ago today, BTCitcoin Hit and an all-time high  Cheesy
- It was ecstatic
- it was orgasmic
It was just unbelievable, It was as thou I was high on crack, It seemed like a big daydream!
But... there it was, for a moment at $20K

Today it's a different story. Let me keep watching the candles.  Grin

No, I am only illustrating the method to use when transacting. I use a different VPN but always pay with bitcoin.

But remember.

TYPE THE LINK DON'T CLICK the LINK
I agree with your advice on this matter.
Certain times addresses can appear very similar and deceptive to the eye especially if you are in a hurry. A very good example is the clone phishing website to this forum. Sometimes when I was searching for results, I ended up with Bitcointalk[dot]to link instead of Bitcointalk.org.
what mostly saved me were warnings from cryptonite, Netcraft and Metamask extensions that I had installed on my browsers.

Edit
And thank you for the info about those services that are paid in Bitcoin. I have always looked for such services in vain. I will definitely try out one of the VPNs when my subscription for this one is done. It would be perfect if I got a good antivirus whose packages are paid in bitcoin too.

Please respond to my messages. I purchased the programs from you and my license key will not work in the program. Please help.

This is another buyer who was even pleading with you to reply to his "messages"... Looks like you ignored him. What do you say about this?
Is it a coincidence?

Another one, with a different username.  If nothing else, it breaks the plagiarism rule.  It's C&Ped right down to the spelling error.

@LoyceV has been hunting them down all day today and reported them. They will definitely be nuked as well.
Looks the Royal_bet is now their new website. They will keep trying until they eventually give up and maybe get a new trick.

Hey let me help you; Can you please forward a link of proof of payment so that i can add it here. With that, we can get enough evidence to call upon some highly trusted member to red tag him... He looks to be continuing with his scam.

18  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: Some Casino Are Asking for Reviews On Our Scam Investigating Site on: December 16, 2018, 10:41:49 PM
I think you should just stay put and continue with your initial goal which was hunting scams rather than trying to review some of them because if you do decide to review, that will mean that your integrity will be in jeopardy and in case the business you have positively reviewed turns out to be a scam... You will lose trust from people and believe me, Trust is not something you just pick up in a day or a week.

A classic example of the site I completely lost trust is ICOBench. There were even claims that they were being paid by some ICOs to make sure they get higher ratings in their site.
19  Economy / Speculation / Re: The real reason BTC price has dropped on: December 16, 2018, 10:28:20 PM
This is a humorous piece, In other words, the Bitcoin supplier sold off his assets when the price was at the all-time high, while the Bitcoin suckers, due to FOMO rushed in to buy citing that it had slightly dropped in price forgetting that the price drop was just only starting. Grin Grin

Some most even possibly panic sold as the price continued to drop and right now don't want anything to do with crypto trading

Then check there is a https lock on the left edge of the window where the url is displayed. Are you where you want to be and where you think you are?
Yup, I think I am where I want to be. the lock for me implies that the certificate issued for the identity of the website is valid.

My question is do we have to use this specific VPN service because am already using a different one
