Hacker is using frozen token which be moved but it has value since it's listed on CMC. I encounter this bait wallet trick using Minereum token before. I still got the wallet address and private of scam wallet. I will try to recover it and share it here to see it in actual.

Dug a little deeper and seems you were wright. It did not make sense at the time but after I got some more info I understood. This scam does mostly use Minereum.
Even if you build a faster/better bot apparently Minereum is coded in such a way that you can send only 106 coins at time. So scammer can't lose the full amount...

Seems that was what I was missing from the story

You're missing something here. Once the automation contract already deployed and the bot will be automatically sending any eth into the destination wallet that already programmed. Human can't compete with the bot that automated the transaction to send any ethereum that being sent to the address that already programmed for that. I have seen this scenario in the past and in so many cases even when people tried that to sent it in seconds and bot may be programmed to sent it into the milisecond or destination address can't be change. The bot will always put it back like before the hacker or scammer change the wallet.

Millisecond or not, the next block is in 20 seconds so an experienced guy would have time or maybe has a bot of his own.

Hacker is using frozen token which be moved but it has value since it's listed on CMC. I encounter this bait wallet trick using Minereum token before. I still got the wallet address and private of scam wallet. I will try to recover it and share it here to see it in actual.

Why would a frozen token have any value and why would it be listed on CMC. What you're saying does not make sense

Some token contract has locking mechanisms and it was coded in such a way that only the dev has the ability to unlock it.

Same as above. Such a token would have 0 value and would not appeal to anyone

The idea is:

If I have, for example, 500 USDT and 0.1 ETH in my wallet and propagate 2 transactions:
    - tx #1 send 500 USDT with fee 0.1 ETH
    - tx #2 send 0.01 ETH with fee 0.09ETH

Why would the second tx confirm first ?

This scenario is very famous before but the token they are using to attract thieves is frozen which is impossible to transfer.

How come impossible to transfer ?
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / The dilema of the scammer that scammed thieves on: May 05, 2022, 06:56:43 AM
There is a story of a/some guy(s) that leaked their wallet info on purpose to scam scammers.

They had some USDT on their wallet but no ETH for fees. So when potential thieves sent ETH to that wallet to withdraw the stable coins his bot would automaticaly send the ETH to another wallet. The story is fun and all but fails to fully make sense in my opinion:

Example:

So wallet owner has 1000 USDT in wallet A
Thive sends 0.1 ETH to wallet A
Bot sends 0.05 ETH from wallet A to wallet B with 0.05 ETH fees

The question I have is couldn't the thieve make another transaction sending all the USDT and using all of the ETH for fees, 0.1ETH, and that would mean his transaction gets confirmed first ?

Or am I missing something here?

does this help ? https://docs.btcpayserver.org/Deployment/ManualDeploymentExtended/#2-create-postgresql-database

PS. Is there a way to access the BTCPayServer only by IP address because domain names are not going to be visible from my K8s pod. With IP addresses I can just do port forwarding and then use the hostname of one of my nodes as the domain name.

If you plan to access it only from your home network than should work. https://docs.btcpayserver.org/Deployment/DynamicDNS/

Whatís the purpose of this old tweet? This is just a pure hype to me and for sure if someone will buy this, that must be a whale who donít care about his money at all.

It's just like someone would buy and old sketch made by Leonardo Davinci. You like it, you like the guy, you buy! Pretty simple if you ask me

A very dubious purchase for an investor.
Our forum also has legendary posts

True, but it's easier with Twitter. You login with twitter on a platform, turn your own tweets into NFTs and list them. Plug'n'play mode ON
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / What if crypto mining is outlawed ? on: February 06, 2022, 10:36:16 PM
China banned miners, the EU is thinking of doing the same and what if others will follow?

In a hypothetical scenario where China, US Canada, Russia, India and EU ban pow mining I doubt the smaller countries can sustain the current active miners. Hashrate would drop significantly and the network would be weaker.
Either there would be a massive investment in solar in many developing countries or we might see the first 51% on BTC (hope not).

Do you see this as a potential threat or did the fud get in my head?

Hi guys, what's a easy way to swap some USDT from ERC20 to BEP20? Have some in my metamask and want to buy some bep20 tokens. Only thing I found was the binance bridge option but has a min of $130 and I have a little under that.
Thanks in advance !

It is true that most blocks are ~1MB . However it's not really hard coded to have a max limit as far as I know.

There were blocks ~2.5MB

I just heard about ZeniQ, the token is already traded on Uniswap, but it's not listed on CMC or Coingecko yet. I read at a glance but haven't found anything interesting on offer.
if someone wants to find project information, I can help you provide some links to ZeniQ
site https://zeniq.com/
twitter https://twitter.com/Zeniq_tech
Facebook https://www.facebook.com/ZENIQTech/
Telegram group https://t.me/zeniq_hub

I literally said it was a scam and that it seems everyone already lost their money with this rug pull, pump&dump shitcoin and you just assumed the thing this thread needs are some more links to that project. Fair enough, Do Your Own Research but you literally wrote "I read at a glance but haven't found anything interesting".

Is it that hard to fill your spam post bounty quota and also write like a human with a brain ?

Phantom Assasin Arcana for sale !

Accept BTC and some alts !

Don't tell me you going to fall for this one...

Of course not ! But was curious what item was all the fuss about, as I also play that game  Cheesy Did not add him on Discord so we'll never know... I just assumed it's an arcana as they generally are worth $30 (so he would profit $270)
...fking scammer
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Zeniq Coin on: July 15, 2021, 11:55:56 AM
I just need to find out the coin's legitimacy, worth and who really owns it. Can someone speak more on this or point me in the right direction?

Thanks you.

A close family member mentioned this shitcoin to me a few days ago. Today just thought to also see if there is a thread here about it. Glad it's just one.

From what I can tell they already ran with the money:



As soon as it reached a liquidity of $1.5M they pulled the rug on everyone, sold and are now on an island drinking mai-tai. The whole Royal Dubai family was a nice bait but TOTAL BULLSHIT !

Please be cautions with all these altcoins ! Losing your money is very easy in this market.
14  Economy / Digital goods / Re: PAYING 500$ BTC TO ANYONE WHO HELP on: May 19, 2021, 12:50:05 PM
OK, I'll bite. What is the item and how much does it cost ?

So the platform will be ready and usable at the end of the year? "Q4 2021 - ARTDECO Launchpad"

Looks nice but you have little to show for it at this stage. Would have liked a finished (even if unpolished) product tbh

Can anyone tell me what are the requirements for participating in the polkastarter IDO.
I understood you need to have 3000 POLS in your wallet and then you can join. After that depends of luck if you get whitelisted or not.
Is there something else I'm missing? Thank you.

The toal number of potential btc addresses is 1.46150164 ◊ 1048 so there really are few that consider collisions an issue.
Vanity addresse generators do actually what you said, create loads of addresses until one matches the characters you want.
You can be 99.9999999999999% that your address is secure to that kind of brute force attack. And even if it happens it needs to collide with one that has funds. There are about 25 million addresses with more that $1 worth on them. You are secured by the power of probability!

On this great day I would like to inform everyone that hss coin as well as the whole hashshare project is a scam.

Oh really?! When we told you so, you keep insisting that we have something against you and your project...

As you have already understood, I am not a representative of the project, but a kind person who got access to the database and servers of the project.

Then why your name is the project's name? When you create this thread it was your project but now you are the admin...? Roll Eyes Grin

You can download the database

Why? TBH the most impressive thing is that you don't have a neg... yet. Cool


Some kind person apparently hacked their db and bitcointalk account.
This seems to be the hacker posting. Did you even read?
Someone hacked the db of a potential scam, I feel so conflicted right now!
If the *.sql files do contain names and IPs it should be deleted I guess or at least edited to remove the link

Not sure what you guys are talking about. Privacy is not hiding your identity, it's choosing who you want/need to show it to.
Tbh OP I didn't really look at things from that perspective, but you have a point.
We would need some conjoined atomic swaps so no one can even corelate 2 tx (btc - xmr) with the same fiat value moments between. But things like this are ugly. There is no frontend, no UI/UX factor and can get be very hard to do for the majority. The UI/UX devs want to be paid. Mostly coding devs are doing 99% of the open source stuff and the finished product is mostly not that user friendly.
There is a prototype of a working atomic swap zcash - btc using HTLC, but it is done in terminal and you would need to run a ZEC full node and a BTC full node. Pretty much over the capability of most people I guess.
https://youtu.be/nPvfn138PRg
If you really want privacy you can get pretty far but since it is hard and requires skills and knowledge in several fields it seems a bit out of reech.

Another issue is privacy coin adoption. Maybe Elon will help a bit if he would accept XMR as payment method for buying a Tesla but the general legislative opinion is not that good. Not that many businesses accept XMR & Co.
Let's just hope it's the same thing as with cars, but faster: the electric motor was invented before the combustion one. It wasn't used at the time because fuel was a bigger market. Decades later we realize it does more harm than good and slowly migrate to electric. I see privacy as having a similar course.
