 we all need to realize as well as me, bitcoin can be a up and down market,  very volatile market at times with lots of factors DDos attacks out the ass ,scammers left and right ,server issues, and of course Internet in general lol,  and we are all just along for the ride if you ask me, thanks bitbook, I will sleep well tonight!

Got on for this very reason. Didn't want anything tied up for 24 hours. Thanks for the update bud.

I still can't get on. I'm doing http not https. Tried it on my phone and different browsers. Any ideas?

Go to your browser settings and then Delete your cookies / cache. Then Don't use HTTP anything just www.bitbook.biz

( still waiting on cashout from 2 accounts a friends and mine  ill let you guys know when they land) says  withdraw in progress for 3 hours now. And he told us that  it would be 6-24 so I'm cool with that!

The long withdrawal time is because it's currently not automated.  They're doing them manually I assume.  Probably until the blockchain gets re downloaded and re-implemented back into the server.

I still can't get it to load??


Guys your bookmarks and history won't work. Just type the URL in the address as BITBOOK.BIZ

No HTTPS
25  Economy / Gambling / Re: BitBook.biz - Bitcoin sportsbook - Instant Withdrawals - Widely Trusted on: February 27, 2014, 11:40:07 PM
I can get to you with the normal url in my browser but the  affiliate link url behind your banner at my site at www.bitcoinpunter.com is not working.
Will this be fixed soon?
Thanks in advance.

it probably has httpS:// in it, which is the secure connection that is down now.

 You need to remove the secure link until it's read. just bitbook.biz

We are slowly bringing BitBook back at http://bitbook.biz. For now there are a few important points to note:

- Blockchain sync is in progress so deposits and withdraws will be delayed for at least 6 hours. You can request them now and they will be queued.
- Automatic Withdraws are currently disabled. Please allow up to 24 hours for withdraws to be processed. We are moving funds slowly out of cold storage.
- We are using a new bitcoin wallet so only send funds to fresh deposit addresses.

Thank you all for your patience and support in this time.

THANK GOD!

Nice work, dude!

Guys, I need to make some plays today.  Lots of value on the board tonight.

Where are the other (reliable enough for 1 day) btc sports books in the mean time?

@BitChaser

A DDoS attack is short for a denial-of-service (DoS) or distributed denial-of-service (DDoS).  It's just an attempt to deny service/access to a server or website by flooding the site with lots and lots and lots of spam traffic.  

Could be caused by a competitor site.

Thank you for this. Basically just constant pinging the server? Must be something pretty simple to do since it happens so much. Is it one person running it from a computer, or a server, or a botnet or a shit ton of assholes with the same goal in mind? Is this similar to the Low Orbit Ion Cannon or w/e I read about LuLz using?

It's not simple for the layman user.  Could be one person running enough botnets to get it done or it could be a group of people running millions of botnet to guarantee closure. DDoS protection is a huge business these days. If it's not a competitor then it is someone trying to blackmail the owners.  

"Pay us X amount of BTC and we will allow your site to resume"

This is very common among gambling sites because the attackers know they have the money.  Probably most likely scenario now that I think about it.


Also, yes it is similar to LuLz LOIC.

I am getting a server provided error page at bitbook.biz atleast now instead of a browser provided one.. Hopefully a good sign :S

Really? The attack must be ongoing becaues I still get the browser error.

Interesting, I am back to getting the browser error aswell. I refreshed a few times and got a server error page that showed me connected to the internet -> connected to "CloudFlare in Newark"? -> then a failed connection to "Webhost". I will screen shot if I see it again!

CloudFare is a sort of attack prevention service so that is a good sign.  Looks like they are at least working to combat this seemingly on-going attack. 

Check it out: www.cloudfare.com

Hopefully they are trying to imlement a solution!

I e-mailed their host yesterday. I didn't mention BitBook.biz or their IP specifically, but the host confirmed a DDoS attack was affecting users. If that's worth anything.

Awesome.  Thank you kindly for this information.

I've been apart of 3 btc thefts on different sites,  some clearweb, some darkweb.

I must say, this doesn't have many of the tell-tale signs.  He would have disabled withdrawals early and allowed deposits for at least a couple of days.  Also, BitBook has constantly upgraded their site, design, security and functionality.  Why do this with a con in mind?  I did feel like the guy manning the forums was a legit guy and I honestly still do.

I am skeptical that the problem may be larger than he cares to share or he could just be working relentlessly to fix the damn problem.  Who knows?  Although it does start to feel like a scam, with recent events, he's invested a shit load of time and effort into builiding the most successful bitcoin sports betting site only to run off with the money right when his site is gaining even more traction? I don't buy it.

Plus, back to my original point, they were making a KILLING off losing bets as well.  He would make more in the long, long run.   I believe in these guys until absolutely proven otherwise. (even though it's hard)

Just go back and read some of his posts. The new features, the security wouldn't have ever been implemented if he were planning the con the whole time.  The last time the site was out I was chatting with him through PM and he was feverishly seeking a solution.

Time will tell.  More than likely, today will tell.
34  Economy / Gambling / Re: BitBook.biz - Bitcoin sportsbook - Instant Withdrawals - Widely Trusted on: February 27, 2014, 04:29:22 PM
Don't you think if they were in this for the long haul they would do more to ease the nerves and give more issurance that are money is safe. Why would they want to compound the problem with the lack of communication my guess is they are gone just like stakebtc

Why didn't he run off when BTC was $1100+ then? How long is the "long haul?"  He's been faithful & reliable over the last year so other than the non-communication, there's nothing to indicate him running off.

Now, it's still a possibility.  But I don't know yet.
35  Economy / Gambling / Re: BitBook.biz - Bitcoin sportsbook - Instant Withdrawals - Widely Trusted on: February 27, 2014, 03:53:38 PM
The good news is he said there is no clear timeframe for the re upload time.
36  Economy / Gambling / Re: BitBook.biz - Bitcoin sportsbook - Instant Withdrawals - Widely Trusted on: February 27, 2014, 03:15:45 PM
I know who we should go after.  I will broadcast a few names as soon as it becomes obvious that we were taken along for a ride.

I sure hope this guy didn't do this to us.

He was online a bit last night, but no updates.

Worse case scenario, I have information as well if needed.

I can say that when the site came back up briefly, I did see my funds there. 

Any senior members who did not create an account today, able to verify this?

I don't know how relevant this would be.

The funds aren't kept in the BTC Address we deposit them too.  

Instead, once we deposit, our account is "credited" with numbers representing how many bitcoin we "own" in the system's larger pool of Bitcoin.  

Let's say hypothetically all of BitBook's funds in that main pool were stolen in the attack (I hope not), then our account balances would still remain the same as those are only credits, not the physical coins.

Even if BB ran with all the coins (very unlikely IMO), the acct balances would remain.  It's meaningless without anything in the site's withdrawable wallet.

On the other hand, if it is just a regular DDoS attack not associated with TX Malleability, then our coin are probably safe and the account balances that were seen during the back-up site reflect how much we will all hopefully be getting back soon.

I'm pretty sure bitcoins can't be stolen during a DDoS attack.  Aren't they secure in cold wallets?

If they verify payments using tx id then yes it is possible.  This attack would come with a ddos although I'm not sure that's what happend here.  No, not all sites store them in cold storage. ie. SilkRoad 2, mt gox.

Can we have our funds back till you sort it out ?

Emergency fund of some sort, handle each cashout by hand if needed.

Account name
Password
Withdrawn address?
Thanks for the help mr bitbook!

Yeah, unfortunately that's not happening.

It takes like a few hours to move from one hosting to another... whats taking you so long?

If the DDoS is ongoing they may not have access to the orig server
