Glad to see your problem solved

FYI, Ubuntu LTS means there's longer support for both hardware compatibility and security vulnerability, but AFAIK no longer support for software update, so that's the source of the problem.
You could add 3rd party repository such as https://launchpad.net/~deadsnakes/+archive/ubuntu/ppa and https://launchpad.net/~jonathonf/+archive/ubuntu/python-3.6 to solve the problem, but you need to trust those repository.
23  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Shower thought on the state as a Bitcoin holder and government subsidized mining on: January 11, 2019, 08:35:47 PM
There are many loops on your shower thought :
1. Assuming mining no longer profitable, miners with old/inefficient ASIC, high electricity price or/and high maintenance cost would be kicked first
2. Because case 1 happen, mining difficult decreased and mining become profitable again for miners with new/efficient ASIC, low electricity price or/and low maintenance cost
3. Because case 2 happen, bitcoin network won't be stopped, but only less secure (have less hashrate)

So, government don't need to take any action, unless they have their own mining farms.
Additionally, there are external/unpredictable factor such as bitcoin price, transaction fees collected by miners and whether the miners thought Bitcoin price will rise on long term (which makes them continue mining even at loss in present)

If the industrial miners leave, then home miners will take over.

Home miners would be abolished first before industrial miners (unless they're hobbyist or long-term HODLer) Cheesy

If theymos suddenly announce changes which increase signature restrictions or merit requirement such as :
1. Jr Member no longer can wear signature
2. All rank merit requirement increased by 5 - 100 (depending on rank) expect old inactive members
3. Add new rank

I'd bet merit will resurrect from it's grave

Another feedback :
1. Last time i missed the part of your target audience, so IMO it's too detailed and looks like it's targeted for tech savvy or computer science student. You should remove the details on Internet and TOR, unless you specifically want the reader know about it.
2. I don't see why CT/Confidental transaction is grouped with CoinJoin since both of them aren't dependent to each other
3. CT and stealth address proposed/developed by one of Bitcoin developer, but it's not used on Bitcoin. So i think you shouldn't include it on your Infographic

that's why I switched to ecosia.com
it plants trees as I search and hopefully isnt as information invasive as google

Looks like interesting search engine and there's no problem with privacy-orianted browser such as Tor Browser

I still prefer more privacy-orianted search engine such as StartPage though

Do you see any option either to :
1. Increase transaction fee of your transaction (it automatically broadcast new transaction with higher fees)
2. Show/get RAW transaction

If you're gonna try linux, you might want to check this guide https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/169120 (even though i doubt it works that way)

Hope you recover your wallet safely. If you can, try making a copy of this folder before you make any changes.

If necessary, you should make RAW copy of the USB drive. There are few tools to do it such as https://hddguru.com/software/HDD-Raw-Copy-Tool/

Obviously, bank now uses method "If you can't destroy it, you control it" and it works pretty well.

Both ETF and Bakkt are a joke, if we want to fight, we should fight for Bitcoin legality as currency, not as investment/asset.

BitPay can be viewed as evil, but it's better than nothing and merchants with no technical knowledge only can rely on BitPay. Even though there's free/open-source alternative such as BTCpay

Why we need to deposit Bitcoin to an address which generated by your website and you charge 10% fees just to test double-spend vulnerability?

FYI, there are many free and open-source tools for double-spend attempt such as https://github.com/petertodd/replace-by-fee-tools

You have the private key from the generated wallet = you have access to your money all the time = you are in control
Also 10% is that you don`t need to know python/linux/nothing, you don`t need any OS or script/etc. Just go on website and make double-spend! Ez.

I know that, but there's no guarantee you don't have the private key as well or only take 10% fees

And if merchant can set his own bitcoin payment service, using script is easy task. Even if he rely on 3rd party services, most of 3rd party services require confirmation these days.

Can't believe it's been 10 years since that tweet. Time really flies when you're having fun [with Bitcoin].
I really hope that at some point in the future, we'll be able to bring cryogenically frozen people back.

Imagine a hundred years from now, people would be able to bring Hal back.

For those who don't know what I'm talking about:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hal_Finney_(computer_scientist)#Death

Indeed. It would be awesome to bring Hal back and let him know heís a billionaire legend. Iím sure itíll be possible someday.

Assuming someone keep his encrypted wallet and he didn't reuse his bitcoin address (which make his bitcoin vulnerable against quantum computer since it's public key is revealed) Grin

10% for such service which we can eventually do it for free?  Grin

Maybe they arent aware on these open source tools exist and proceed on creating their project which is totally useless.

They should be aware since on their FAQ page they share news links Peter Todd Double Spends On Coinbase which contain link to the GitHub page i mentioned

my top results

I vote you should learn lots of things from the basic

Hmm,
never knew you wanted to be a lauda ass kisser.

Noted for future reference.


 Cool


So now suggestion to help others now means you're lauda supporters (noted for future reference), i guess majority of member support lauda Tongue

37  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Ethereum Anti-ASIC fork, is it the right time for bitcoin too? on: January 10, 2019, 05:54:51 AM
If you do the voting (1 BTC = 1 ticket), there is a strong probability that ASIC supporter would win.

Fortunately, bitcoin consensus never achieved with this way. In the past, most changes usually happens after majority support of miners (usually for popular/controversial upgrade such as SegWit), developer just release the change if there aren't many disagreement (usually for underrated upgrade such as P2SH & upcoming Schnorr) or using UASF/UAHF (even though AFAIK consensus/upgrade never achieved this way)

As of ProgPow being gpu friendly, the inventor has argued that it is somehow inevitable because she believes there is always a possibility to crack any algorithm by ASICs and it is more safe to design it for an ASIC from the beginning and gpus are ASIC! They have a lot of specialized circuits and PogPoW utilizes them to make it almost pointless to design a chip just a bit more specialized than a conventional gpu, smart girl!

Ok, that makes sense for me who don't have much knowledge about hardware.

I don't believe in the first part of the above argument, that any algorithm is breakable by ASIC, you can always have a truly memory hard algorithm that resists parallelization, actually I've been working on one for a while, yet I do believe that gpu is a better choice than cpu because of another reason: sequential, cpu-friendly PoW is vulnerable to botnets as hackers would be able to get control of large processing powers and damage profitability of miners, for the least. A cpu-friendly algorithm is more adequate for hashcash like applications where wallets add work to transactions (and not blocks as the case with miners) and contribute to security partly with a replace-fee-by-work policy.

You miss my point, what i meant is part of the community is allergic/being biased against hard-fork (no matter what's the hard fork about)

But i can't disagree with your point since such scenario also happen with Monero (which is also cpu-friendly algorithm)

39  Bitcoin / Press / Re: [2019-01-09]Bitcoin And Ethereum Blockchains Are Not Protected From 51% Attack on: January 09, 2019, 08:25:40 PM
With lots of money, PoW (and all decentralized consensus method) isn't safe from 51% attack or other method of attack.

Unless the attacker work together with pool & miner, it's hard to launch 51% attack since obtain ASIC/GPU in huge number, optimal location and huge electricity amount are hard task even for many government.

There is more money to be made over a longer period of time by running normally, than to attempt a double spend, which will likely fail anyway.

Unless the attacker tricking exchange/merchant and can use their hashrate to mine other profitable coins, but again it only applied to cryptocurrency with low hashrate compared to another cryptocurrency with same algorithm, but have bigger hashrate.
40  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Ethereum Anti-ASIC fork, is it the right time for bitcoin too? on: January 09, 2019, 08:16:06 PM
There's no wrong time, but it might be best time, especially following momentum sometimes is good idea. Even so, there are many problem that must be overcome such as :
1. Get community support, especially most people are against hard-fork
2. Make sure Bitcoin network isn't vulnerable during transition, there are few things that should be thought seriously such as initial difficulty
3. Get miner support, which is unlikely because SHA-256 ASIC pretty much only can mine Bitcoin. Even BCH only have 3% of BTC's hashrate, so their ASIC essentially become expensive heater.

But while ProgPoW is great idea, i don't like the fact it's utilized for GPU.
