This is not a hard fork. This is an airdrop. If it was a hard fork, you could use your private keys to get the amount. But they are checking for various transactions, and then are going to SEND you the united bitcoin, and only if you provide identifying information.

Why is anyone bothering with this? Is there really a thought that this is going to take off?

If they are able to send coins to anyone they want, then this is centralized. They have a huge premine, even if eventually anyone can mine. What is the point of this obtuse procedure except for them to keep more coins for themselves and/or to get personal information for tracking?

That is not correct.

It definitely was a hard fork.

Check your addresses to see you gained the coins and there are transactions on the exact dates you received them on the bitcoin blockchain.
To be clear.... If you had received 1btc for every month for every year and you go to the UB explorer, you will see exactly that.  It shows every transaction (Not simply a single address with the full airdrop amount).  The blockchain is 100% a fork of the original.

The difference is UB used a god mode to take it all away.

This scam was simply to de-anonymize and kill coin days destroyed as you moved your coins to claim them as part of phase 2, but they didn't give anything back to the addresses.

This is more likely just another jgarzik fuck up in which he can't fix his own explorer (the full node or the lite node).

Even better, they changed the web explorer to hide the fact that they used such a GOD mode to reverse the 'unutilized' coins.  That transaction simply doesn't even show up anymore.

I updated my Byteball wallet today to the latest version.
The application crashed with an Uncaught Exception Error.

I deleted all the files (including %appdata%) and installed the client again.
Recovering the wallet from my seed was followed by this error:

"Uncaught exception: Error: message encrypted to unknown key, device 0GY.....SRL, len=240. The error might be caused by restoring from an old backup or using the same keys on another device"

Any help is appreciated. (Do not PM me asking for my SEED values).



Looks like I probably just deleted bytes worth 1 BTC... haha always lucky.

Edit2:
Recovering any deleted files from SSD is highly unlikely.
Lost all my blackbytes, lost titan-coins worth approx 1 BTC.


So, the first mistake you made was to NOT make a full backup.  That is the biggest mistake you could make and negates everything else in terms of blaming someone else for your problem.

Why would you delete your appdata (wallet folder) just because of a one time error?  That's another mistake (second) in that even if the wallet has a problem, it can be fixed.  So, a backup (simply moving the folder) is preferred to deleting and then hoping to magically get the funds to reappear.

Since you had your seed, you knew up front that a backup of a seed only would only restore bytes (not blackbytes), as it tells you exactly that during the seed backup (and recovery).

There is not a need for a wallet update to restore from seed.  It works.  I fear you have something else going on.
Delete the application and reinstall.

The question for Byteball is: should we try and make this process kid-proof? My opinion is that we should not. Working with contracts is something for adults. Of course the process should be as easy as possible and the explanation of the terms and conditions should be clear, but totally kid-proofing it seems near impossible and not necessary.


There is no way to block 'kids' from investing or even trying to claim free tokens.  'Kids' can also be mentally slow adults.  I see a bunch of people complain about Byteball (and all other projects as well), simply because they have no damn clue as to what they're doing.  They read what they want and ignore everything else.  So, when they can't figure out how they just spent $8, they complain the project is at fault and ignore what the transition bot said.  It's simply amazing how many of those 'kids' have no idea what a change address is or how to move coins but actually have coins to even move (without having lost them).  Almost as amazing is how many of those people have $100 worth of coin and willing to pay an $8 transaction, but complain that they haven't received $1000 worth of free coin.  They just simply have no clue and almost no amount of coaching will every help them or even change their mind that something is good or bad, because they've already made the decision in their head that it can't be their fault for having not followed directions.

No need to follow this thread.

Basically, it's a failed project.  A form of scam to deanonymize your coins.

Can someone explain to me why I didn't got my BTH?
Iv'e registered with this address:

No need to worry about it.  The project failed before it even got off the ground.

Strange the hash power died the same day of the distribution... Why would the network slow down the same day of the distribution?

What distribution?

The complain is that no one is actually getting the coins other than exchanges for Phase 1.

No distribution happened for Phase 2 (a month ago), nor even the updated time of Jan 24th.   And, for people to think they are going to get a distro for the Grace period in a month is simply funny if they haven't distributed from the last phase a month ago.

Quite simply, this is a Shame coin.  Even garzik hasn't made a single reply to any of the UB threads.  Even the one he is the moderator on.

At least some scam coins admit it.  This one simply never responds.  I'd rather buy into https://shill-coin.org/ as they tell you it's a shill up front.
146  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: UNITED BITCOIN on: January 30, 2018, 04:48:48 PM
but not many exchanges are anonymous and they may well have signed up with garzik's company to keep track of questionable coins. exchanges these days are alot more scared of breaking an unknown law than annoying you.
Fine than. I shapeshift to some untraceable coin and the analysis chain is still broken. All they might know is that at some point in the past the fake name and disposable anon sim I used has had some BCN or something of the sort.

I believe this is too elaborate and of too little value. When the "tax" they request is hard cash in hand, much more palpable.

That's all fine and dandy trying to anonimize your coins; however, the issue still remains that they haven't even paid out for Phase 2 that completed nearly a month ago.  So, no reason to believe that going after the Grace Period coins after giving up information is going to be any better.

What's next?  Phase 2 Grace Period Extra Super Round by linking your Facebook and Twitter accounts to get the Super Extra Bonus stuff (and still while not paying the prior rounds and/or retracting them as well in God mode)?   Smiley
147  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: UNITED BITCOIN on: January 30, 2018, 02:12:05 PM
For phase 2 claim now they want me to send an amount of BTC to some addr. WTH? Is this like a "tax" for claiming?

1Gp55PCWuNGXFwLqWQoSkiL325Ksj4rhuM - lots of transactions. This method of claiming is outright BS.

Actually... Phase 2 is over and they didn't distribute anything.

They are now in Phase 2 (B) called 'Grace Period' in which they want you to now sign up and they now require identifying information.
Without having given out the original Phase 2 distribution which closed nearly a month ago, there is no reason to believe they would give out phase 2 grace period after you give up your personal information.  It's simply another tactic to obtain information for their Chain Analysis software to track and record who owns what coins and not give you anything for your information.

Quite simply, it might as well be people trying to find the richest bitcoin holders in order to extort them.
148  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: UNITED BITCOIN on: January 28, 2018, 06:01:43 AM
edit - i downloaded ub electrum. i do have a ubtc balance on there. it's saying 'not verified'. i don't know what that means. i hope that doesn't mean i need to provide a blood sample before they mysteriously unlock them.

Full chain said nothing.
The website explorer shows the coins came in and were taken away (unutilized) - Phase 1.   Never to come back even completing movement for Phase 2.
And finally, electrum shows the coins, but not that they were taken away or replaced.

So, with your electrum, you will see the 'not verified' go away, but when you try to move them, it will give you the error.  As a test, just move them from one address to another of yours and see.
149  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: UNITED BITCOIN on: January 27, 2018, 09:37:19 PM
Yesterday I received the following reply from technical support:
"Thank you for your email, you are eligible for Phase 2 distribution. However, phase 2 distribution to some of the community was completed 24th January. If you haven't received your allocation yet please don't panic. Distributions are still ongoing, apologies for the delay."

I call Bullshit.   Has a single person received UBTC (confirmed) that they were to receive in Phase 2  (not even considering the Phase 2 Grace Period) that they can spend/move?
- Of course there are going to be one or two that think they have, but not realize they can't be moved.  So, post such an address.  Smiley

The website explorer is screwed.  No update for balances.
The Electrum (thin client) shows what should be the correct balance; however, it never updated since UB took all the coins back from Phase 1 since the Bitcoin were 'unutilised'.
- So, you will see a balance, but you can't move them as you'll simply get an error.

The Phase 2 was 3 weeks ago, with a distribution of Jan 24th.  Personally, I have many addresses with small on up to larger amounts.  Not a single one received a part of the distribution.

150  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: UNITED BITCOIN on: January 27, 2018, 05:11:38 AM
the wallet with the full node freezes with synchronization on time January 24 13:31:37 2018, so it will not help either.
in electrum, too, a mistake "" the transaction was rejected ... "

Your issue is duplicated by everyone.

Quite simply, it appears a failed fork like others without a response.  Now they just want to provide a 'grace period' where you have to provide your personal information now even if you did complete the phase two correctly.

They just want to de-anonymize wallets.  garzik using the information for his chain analysis tools.

I only lost about 3 bucks and a few hours on this so I'm not gonna cry. just curious as to what really happened.

I wasted more money and a lot more time claiming.

Looks like it was simply a scam to deanonymize wallets.   Kind of like United Bitcoin is where they keep claiming you get something, but turns out you have to keep giving up more and more information.  With Bytether, as least you get/got something that is worthless and stuck in the wallet.

Looks like it's simply a failure before it even started.  Better luck even with B2X.
152  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Claiming United Bitcoin on: January 23, 2018, 10:32:29 AM
According to their rules?  Yes.

And, if you didn't, there is now an additional Grace Period; however, the signup for that requires now your personal information.
153  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Tokens (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][AirDrop] Bytether, The New Bitcoin, - 1:1 Cross-Fork of Bitcoin onto Ether on: January 15, 2018, 07:05:28 PM
They haven't responded in nearly a week now.

Their website is now taken down as well.

154  Other / Archival / Re: [ANN] [Airdrop] EBX EtherByte on: January 15, 2018, 06:40:49 PM
Wait..... No website?

Gotta be kidding me.  What company, ico, project opens up without even having a website or domain.

How many fake accounts in this thread claiming to 'love the project'?   Ummm, no project even listed.

Honestly, I love the idea.

Need to find a way to make this work out for everyone.  Smiley

I need to pay something to claim or it's just with a signed message?
(I can't find this token on coin marketcap, any idea to see actually quotation?)

You need to pay the ETH transaction fee; however, I would hold off until the team resurfaces.  I haven't heard anything for nearly a week now.

I don't believe anyone has heard from them in days.  Sad

That said, there is a current issue.  Not sure if it's bytether fault or etherscan.io problem.

It appears the BTH was in the registered address, and now it's not.  Seem liks a goof in the matrix.  Waiting on a response now.


Turns out it was an etherscan issue.
159  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Tokens (Altcoins) / Re: [ANN][AirDrop] Bytether, The New Bitcoin, - 1:1 Cross-Fork of Bitcoin onto Ether on: January 06, 2018, 09:07:12 AM
Is it possible to get BTH for my bitcoins that were in a cold storage / paper wallet during Bitcoin Cash fork?

Yes.  That's the entire idea.

https://www.bytether.com/register.html  -- Just plug in any bitcoin address (yours), and it will tell you if there is BTH to claim or not.  Then you just follow the process to claim them.

I don't get it - their website says there is an Electrum wallet - but when you go to the Electrum website there is no mention of it.
Does anyone know where the SBTC wallet is?
I can't find one anywhere.

Go to the official site:
http://supersmartbitcoin.com/

At the top, next to the words Super Bitcoin is a download link.

That is their wallet.


Thanks! wow - they didn't make that easy to find! Why don't they put a link to it in the wallets section?!! weird.
Anyway - I noticed there are people posting scam phishing sites on here too.

REMEMBER - ALWAYS TRANSFER ALL YOUR BTC TO A NEW WALLET BEFORE TRYING TO CLAIM ANY FORKED COINS !

Yes, this is the golden rule of forks! Never ever claim any forkcoin before having emptied 100% your own wallet! Better safe than sorry.

Exactly.

I remember trying to keep full amounts of bitcoin in various wallets.  With all the forks, it's not possible.  Meaning, it's too much work.  Just realize that you're going to have to pay TX fees to take small parts of each in fees for each fork.

Have an old address?  Just work your way down the value in each for till you claim each.
