1  Other / Meta / Re: Introducing NFTs for forum members on: April 01, 2021, 04:36:09 AM
I was able to get a V NFT after buying a random one 20 x.

Question: if I buy a random NFT for 50 BTC they is listed for more than 50BTC, who covers the difference? Does the seller get screwed out of the difference? Or does the forum cover the difference?

Its definitely not real. I've just found the picture she/he used in internet. See it for yourself here https://cdn.acidcow.com/pics/20131021/cuties_06.jpg
Thats too bad. Not gonna lie, that girl is hot.

If that girl actually came to the forum, she could probably get a lot of merit. Just look at how much alia got from pretending to be a girl in only two months.

New DT2 members

The usual disclaimers apply - these lists change quickly, might not be accurate by the time you look at it, etc. Also the list might include DT1 members. Use at your own risk. Bolded users are new since ~ last week (the first iteration of this DT experiment), others are new since the "old" DT of about a month ago. 200+ users have been added.

There are a lot[\b] of people that have no business being on DT2. A decent amount of people are on DT1 that should be there either.

I predict we Will see much more curruption and those with power will continue to get away with stealing from others, extorting others, and similar.
7  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: June 15, 2018, 06:26:37 AM
I read through the Tether manipulation paper. IMO it made two convincing points:

#1 Someone has a habit of doing this:
 - Issuing new USDT
 - Within days, moving that USDT to BitFinex, Bittrex, and/or Poloniex
 - Using that USDT to buy crypto (seemingly a portfolio of BTC & others). They especially like to buy crypto when the price is just below whole numbers.
 - Moving the resulting crypto back to BitFinex
 - Rarely or never selling the crypto for USDT again
 
The authors argue that this is Tether/BitFinex themselves, and I think that this is in fact the most likely explanation. But the authors didn't address the alternative possibility of this being a particularly ham-fisted whale who is a close partner of Tether.
Bitfinex has been tailoring their operations over the past year and a half or so to appeal to institutions, and apparently have attracted a decent number of institutional customers. Also, if you believe their published orderbook, their BTC/fiat orderbook is by far the most liquid among exchanges. Bitfinex also has an OTC trading desk that apparently has been fairly successful (when a trader buys BTC via OTC from bitfinex, then the OTC trading desk will be effectively short BTC [at an above market basis], and will need to buy BTC to cover their position).

With the above being said (using made up numbers), if someone wanted to 5000 BTC at no more than 102% of the current trading price, they might be able to buy up 4000 BTC on the bitfinex orderbook at that price, but if the orderbook of poloniex and bittrex are also used, they might be able to buy the entire 5000 BTC they want. This could be done by an institutional trader, or by bitfinex themselves to cover an effective short position caused by an OTC trade.

Unfortunately, I am unable to account for the month end price decline issue. Maybe this is noise, maybe there is some other explanation, or maybe the authors are right. I would tend to think this is probably noise.  


I've thought for a long time that USDT is almost certainly a scam, and this paper makes me think so even more. Though I was actually a little surprised that this provides evidence (via the end-of-month trading) that USDT ever had any real USD.
Bitmex published a research report on tether this past February in which they found a bank in Puerto Rico they believe is likely holding the USD deposits of tether and bitfinex, as according to publicly available data (that I believe is not available in real time), had USD deposits grow at rates above the growth of USDT in circulation.

Further, tether has shown what is nearly proof of funds in the amount of ~$442 million as of September 2017, which exceeded the amount of USDT in circulation at the time.

The late months of Mt Gox showed what happens when customers are unable to withdraw USD from an exchange -- the price trades at a premium to other exchanges. Gox customers would deposit BTC into their Gox account, sell their BTC, request a USD withdrawal, and eventually cancel their USD withdrawal use that USD to purchase BTC to withdraw and eventually deposit and sell on another exchange. In the case of bitfinex, the USD price of BTC is almost always the same (for all intents and purposes -- it is generally within 30 basis points) of other major exchanges.

Your immediate thought upon seeing someone named "theymos" (or any other recognizable name) on any other site is that he's not really me.

I knew it isn't you on Amazon!


Do you have any recommendations where I can purchase a thermos created by theymos?

I went to www.theymos.com but cannot find anything listed for sale.

It looks like this was reported several months ago, I am not sure why this was just acted upon recently.

If it means anything the person theymos thinks has zero moral virtue believes that the OP is a "legitimate user" and presumably thinks should not be banned.

Have you tried calculating your fMerit score with the below formula?

Code:
min((1103515245*(uid+activity)+12345) % (1<<10),(1103515245*posts+12345) % (1<<10), (1103515245*merit+12345) % (1<<10))

This is exactly why you fMerit score is what it is.

Just found this thing. It seems to be a 1st April forum feature. Does anyone have the same thing? Is that a random numbers or they are somehow based on forum activity? Also what means "f" in fMerit? Fucking merit? Cheesy  And why da helldo I got only 2 imagination?
Thanks for the feature and sorry if I've missed the thead that is already discussing it (if there is one).

The general public can create a free account without an actual email address.  No issue here.

16  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: The downsides of OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY? on: March 13, 2018, 06:32:01 AM
nLockTime is specific to the subject transaction. This means if you sign a transaction with an nLockTime, that transaction cannot confirm in a block prior to that constraint.

OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY on the other hand, restrict outputs of a transaction from being spent prior to a certain constraint. There are very different use cases for OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY than for nLockTime. If a customer is withdrawing funds from a service, there is no real reason why the service would want to restrict the customer from spending their withdrawal anything other than immediately.

As mentioned above, OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY will be used with LN and other similar payment channels. It is likely that OP_CHECKLOCKTIMEVERIFY was soft-forked into Bitcoin with LN/payments channels in mind.

New repayment address for you, I mistakenly also gave the same repayment address to another user I'm lending to (warningsigns, and that was the 0.0375 BTC sent) so I'll switch it to avoid confusion. New address is 3CmEi6DjW6F3FFJ7emAtXU4r9UL8vap8Cz

Margin seems to be fairly healthy again.
More lenders should do this. There have been a lot of instances of lenders using the same repayment address for everyone that makes it very difficult to confirm if any given loan has actually been repaid or not. This is especially important when collateral is involved because collateral needs to be returned when a loan is repaid.
18  Other / Meta / Re: Posting Deceptive Hyperlinks to Gain Traffic on: March 13, 2018, 06:05:38 AM
game-protect, has been trying to dupe members of this forum into visiting his website by posting deceptive hyper links.  

The issue is not even necessarily about tricking members into clicking on his links. When links are posted around here, the google search results rankings will improve because of the large number of other sites that link back to bitcointalk.org. So when this guy's links are spammed around here, his search result rankings will improve, and they will improve for search terms associated with the titles of the threads he spams his links in.

These posts are not adding any real value to the discussions, and is little more than back-link spam.

I find it HIGHLY ironic that OGnasty has EXCLUDED well know scam-busting users, like Cryptodevil and Suchmoon.

It's your fault Owlz...  Grin (/ssssss)

The only place where I ever crossed paths with the mighty Og in a less-than-cordial way was when I posted a positive trust for you. That guy is like three-degrees-of-separation-angry.

Not sure what cryptodevil did to him. Maybe just the "devil" in the name is enough to set Og off.
This might be crazy, but maybe you were excluded because of your behavior and apparent criteria to leave trust ratings.

Kind Regards
Panthers52

Such a coincidence though. Really crazy.

Quicksy's alts can read Og's mind. Also crazy.

I prefer Occam though.
I don't see why you think you can act the way you do (same for the others), and that anyone would want to give credence to what your opinion is. Maybe because you think some people agree with you sometimes?
