I guess your right but if he violates the terms of his visa can't they just expel him? Or are they afraid that the ridiculous system of monitoring imposed on the people over the past few decades won't be enough to find him. Can't they just pick him up when he hops out of the forest like a scared deer to visit this family that he is here to be around? The law just looks like a spoiled bully that is making up stupid rules because they're pissed because one of their subjects stood up for himself and said, enough is enough.

It's just easier and cheaper to refuse entry to risky people than to go chasing them down across the country when they run off. It sucks big time, but the US aren't the only ones who have these crazy immigration laws, although they do enforce them very strictly.

This doesn't let you store the wallets in the home folders, and the -wallet argument seems to only let you specify wallets inside the data dir.

Have you all seen this: http://www.coindesk.com/roger-ver-denied-us-visa-attend-miami-bitcoin-conference/

Why would the government do this other than to mess with him? Is it because of his connection to Bitcoin or because he renounced his citizenship? If you renounce your citizenship you can't go to the U.S. anymore? I suggest we all mail a cup of fresh urine to the U.S. senate in protest with a label that says, "piss off".

It's because he renounced his citizenship. He has a criminal record, it's next to impossible to get a US travel visa with a criminal record. Also because he was once a US citizenship and has many ties to the US such as family, there is a chance he may decide not to return once his travel visa expires and stay as an illegal immigrant in the US. This is why he's being denied, nothing to do with Bitcoin AFAICT.

Are you running linux?

If so, open bitcoin-core and goto help > debug window and paste the openssl version listed there.

On linux, Bitcoin Core stores the blockchain and wallet files in the users home folder (~/.bitcoin). This is bad because if you have multiple users using Bitcoin Core, you'll have a copy of the blockchain in each users home folder, when you only need 1 copy.

I'd like to store the blockchain outside of the home folders, but keep the wallet files inside the home folders. What is the best way to do this?

I can access using ZenMate plugin but I would like to know why they ban my Ip? I'm connecting over 3g.

Someone else using the same ISP as you tried to DDoS a cloudflare protected website. 3G internet providers often share the same IP with multiple subscribers. You can try contacting blockchain or cloudflare if you want your IP unbanned, or you can use a proxy/Tor to access it.
8  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: MoriartyBitcoin is also Envrin and BlackLilac Financial on: December 15, 2014, 04:13:51 AM
the ONLY relevant complaint against me is the $80k accusation.  

Envrin is a closed-source CMS.  Other than hiring them for some web development, I have no association with them.

As for blacklilac, well, this thread was the first I heard of them.  I don't run scams, I run businesses.

Every fucking scam on the net these days seems to get blamed on me, it's really absurd.  Anyone who uses my sites is happy, and everyone else can piss off.

No, you most definitely control the forum account named Envrin. That is a fact. I'm not going to point out all the mistakes you made because it's better that you don't know what they are and keep making them, but even if you open up these two pages and simply compare your writing style by eye, it becomes clear you are the same person:

Anyway I'm not going to argue it with you. You can deny it all you want but I don't think your going to convince anyone.

They're asking for your password via email? whats the email address you contacted?

Can you do "view source" on the email and paste it here?

Yes they can bypass 2FA, I'm surprised they're asking for your password.
10  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: MoriartyBitcoin is also Envrin and BlackLilac Financial on: December 15, 2014, 03:52:10 AM
I don't have shit-all to do with blacklilac.

As for Envrin, that's a development company I paid to develop some sites, and that's my only connection to them either.

Keep digging ...

Nah, I'm pretty sure it's you man, there is plenty of evidence. If Envrin are a "company" you hired then you must have hired them to support your customers too seeing as email accounts for many of your websites are pointed to their domain.

I never like involving the government mainly because I think they do more bad than good in these situations and even if you're convicted it's unlikely victims will get much or even any reimbursement, but if you continue to scam I'll have no choice but to give all the information and evidence I have and everything I find in the future to the relevant LEA, so maybe you should think about quitting while your ahead.

13  Economy / Scam Accusations / MoriartyBitcoin is also Envrin and BlackLilac Financial on: December 14, 2014, 04:13:31 AM
moriartybitcoin is a known scammer who runs a large number of fraudulent websites. After doing some investigating I have determined that moriaritybitcoin is BlackLilac Financial, another scammer who also ran a large number of fraudulent websites and also Envrin, a British Columbia-based startup company who deals with cryptocurrencies.

Most of moriartybitcoin's websites are protected by cloudflare, which makes it more difficult to determine the IP of the server as cloudflare acts as a reverse proxy. However more difficult doesn't mean impossible, so here are the true IP's of some of his fraudulent websites:

bitscams.org 37.46.114.129
bitwebhosting.com    185.28.189.209
bitzam.com 104.219.184.9
bitwant.com 185.28.189.207
bitarmored.com 130.255.188.243
coinchimp.com 104.219.184.12
vcbtc.com 104.219.184.18
bitplastic.com  104.219.184.9
hotbitcoins.com  198.58.84.200  
bitlisting.com 37.46.114.129
bitspeculate.com  104.219.184.18  
thebitcoinescrow.com  104.219.184.9
bitlaunder.com    104.219.184.16
bitsecurity.com 79.170.40.93
bitmeetup.com 37.46.114.129
bitsweeps.com 31.170.106.203
bitbing.com 37.46.114.129

Everyone please contact the hosting providers for these IP's and let them know they are hosting fraudulent websites, hopefully some of them will get taken down.

Moriartybitcoin is also Envrin on BitcoinTalk and owns the website http://envrin.com which is a cryptocurrency "startup" in British Columbia.

Moriartybitcoin is also BlackLilac Financial, there is a scam accusation thread concerning their various websites and accounts here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=321290.0

One thing I found quite funny is this, here is a fake address moriaritybitcoin used to register a domain:

Mr Michael Moriarty
The Bitcoin Network
115 East Pender St.
Vancouver,
British Columbia
V6A 1T6
(778)698-2215

And here is an address BlackLilac used when registering a domain:
Black Lilac Financial Corporation
1155 W Pender St
Vancouver, BC
V6E 2V2
Canada
1 (877) 420-7992

It also appears BlackLilac may be being investigated by law enforcement in Canada, so if you have been defrauded by moriartybitcoin/blacklilac, you might want to read the scam accusation thread and get in contact with the officers investigating:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=321290

I've not finished my investigation and will be adding to this thread in the future, but from what I've found so far I do believe it is quite likely we will eventually get real personal information on the person behind all of these scams. Please email me if you have found anything useful, if you wish to send me a donation to help me out with my time, you can send to: 13Lwo1hK5smoBpFWxmqeKSL52EvN8U7asX
14  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Bitcoin Bouny Hunter: Bitalo DDOS attacker discussion on: November 18, 2014, 03:27:28 PM
The kid is quite obviously in the US (east coast). Thats not the issue, the issue is that even when the kid is found, LE won't be able to do a whole lot with the info, they'll still need to do an independant investigation and find the evidence on their own. It's almost certain we'll find his identity as the kids clearly made a lot of mistakes, but that doesn't mean he'll be convicted of a criminal offense.

This is why I don't see the point wasting my time looking into this, because the chances of a conviction are low and a conviction is required to claim the bounty. Instead of being set on securing a conviction, you could publicly post his information in order to let his friends, family and future potential employers know what he did. That would also be more likely to discourage others from doing the same thing.
15  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Bitcoin Bouny Hunter: Bitalo DDOS attacker discussion on: November 17, 2014, 06:40:40 PM
There is a major problem with these bounties, and it is that in order for the bounty to be paid out the person needs to be convicted.

In most developed countries, there needs to be a clear chain of evidence in order to secure a conviction, essentially, law enforcement need to prove that all of the evidence was obtained legally and through the proper channels. It's quite likely any evidence obtained by a bounty hunter would be inadmissable as it would be difficult for LE to prove all of it was obtained legally, and for that reason its highly unlikely prosecutors would move ahead on a case like this.

See:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fruit_of_the_poisonous_tree

It would be much better if the bounty was paid for providing the identity of the person along with proof that is acceptable enough for the escrower.
16  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: How to verify Armory on: November 04, 2014, 08:30:23 AM
It sounds so easy, and I believe it is, for some...

When I click on the signed hash file, it opens in a new window in my browser and I see no option to download the file, so I copied the content and and made the file myself by naming it "armory_0.92.3_sha256sum.txt.asc".

File > Save Page As in your browser (at least in Firefox). But what you did works fine too.

And then I ran the code you gave me and it said it was a good signature. But when I run this command:
Code:
sha256sum armory_0.92.3_osx.tar.gz
it says
Code:
-bash: sha256sum: command not found

My mistake, I forgot that sha256sum is only on Linux and not on OSX out-of-the-box. Try picobit or doug_armory's solutions.

They should probably have OSX-specific instructions for verifying the installer on the download page along with the Linux one.
17  Bitcoin / Armory / Re: How to verify Armory on: November 03, 2014, 11:30:55 AM
Try this:

Download this file:
https://s3.amazonaws.com/bitcoinarmory-releases/armory_0.92.3_sha256sum.txt.asc
(it is the signed hash file from here: https://bitcoinarmory.com/download/ )

And also download Armory for MacOSX from that page too.

and run the following:

Code:
gpg --verify armory_0.92.3_sha256sum.txt.asc

If you get the message GOOD signature, then run
Code:
sha256sum armory_0.92.3_osx.tar.gz

And you should see something like this:
Code:
25aac165bcdfc326ca36e630e9676dd1b116b246209e7bc9b646001977deb947 armory_0.92.3_osx.tar.gz

Then open the file armory_0.92.3_sha256sum.txt.asc in a text editor and check that the line above is in it and matches exactly.

I'm surprised this was only posted on cryptome recently. This has been known about for quite sometime.

Windows also does something similar with EFS.

Even if you do join a domain it sends the key to the domain admin, Microsoft have made it very difficult to use their encryption tools without a third party having your private key.

Best to use the encryption tools provided by your wallet software and not solely rely on BitLocker or EFS.

If you think that the Tokyo police will treat you unfairly because you are a foreigner and you haven't been officially charged with a crime yet, you may want to look at all your options and possibly consider leaving the country.

Those charges are very serious and Japan has a greater than 99% conviction rate:
