521  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: "Vision of Satoshi" is'n vision.it's "Philosophy" on: September 15, 2018, 06:58:43 PM
Regardless of whether you call it a vision, philosophy, mantra or something else entirely, Bitcoin has now grown far beyond the influence of one person (assuming satoshi wasn't a group, that is).  People should stop basing their views about Bitcoin's current direction on what they believe satoshi would have wanted.  Not only because no one can know exactly what that was now, but also because you can't logically have a decentralised crypto if you're constantly making an appeal to authority when trying to move forward.

Additionally, it's not good to rely on Vision/Philosophy too much which created from some time ago since :
1. The world keep moving forward which makes current condition are different from past
2. Since current condition is different, then solution which worked on past might not work for today
3. Satoshi isn't perfect and some of his vision is outdated or Satoshi failed to predict the future. For example, one-cpu-one-vote sound good, but Satoshi failed to predict mining with GPU, FPGA and ASIC.

But regarding term, "Vision of Satoshi" or "Satoshi's Vision" sounds better, even though it's abused/misunderstood by many.

Watch this video Ethereum's Constantinople Update & Difficulty Bomb by Simply Explained - Savjee. He also made few other interesting video with easy explanation Smiley

But basically it will make transaction/smart contract verification faster which means user will pay less gas when make an ETH transaction.
523  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: connection dropped: not accepting new connections on: September 15, 2018, 06:13:11 PM
Thanks for the replies guys.  my node is running fine and has both incoming and out going connections.  i was just interested in knowing what this IP address was up to and why it couldn't connect. 

thanks again

If you already make sure that there's no problem with your connection and nodes configuration, then i only could think these reason :
1. Your ISP uses dynamic IP and few of them might be blacklisted from your nodes configuration or firewall.
2. That nodes reached maximum incoming connection
524  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Best practices to handle BTC payments in a web based shop properly and secure on: September 15, 2018, 06:01:50 PM
Yes, assuming the xpriv(master private key)/private keys are secure. Make sure only authorized people who can access or see your xpub to protect your financial privacy/anonymity.

You also could use your order id as alternative way to generate the address ('m/<order ID>') so you don't need to store or/and link the number of each derived address.
525  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Coinmarketcap continues to lose influence over the industry on: September 14, 2018, 06:36:51 PM
Sane people who've done their research won't use Coinmarketcap which facilitate promote scam/ponzi coins/ICO and there's rumor they intentionally manipulate market cap/volume for minor altcoin.
526  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcointalk and CMC continue to lose influence over cryptomarket on: September 14, 2018, 04:15:41 PM
Let's see :
1. Bitcointalk dominated by spammer and outdated to most cryptocurrency forum/community website. Bitcoin price crash after reach $20K and merit introduction made few spammer left.
2. Coinmarketcap have bad reputation since they accept advertising coins/ICOs many times which are scam/ponzi such as Bitconnect and there's rumor they intentionally manipulate market cap/volume for minor altcoin

So no wonder both website traffic went down, but there's almost no correlation between traffic of those website and Bitcoin price/value. Bticoin's technology, adaption, legality and ease to use/obtain it are more relevant.
527  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Bitcoin puzzle transactions? on: September 14, 2018, 03:50:55 PM
That refers to Bitcoin puzzle that created by a Bitcoiner where you need to find the answer/pattern to create/generate private key or mnemonic seed. This puzzle already discussed on https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1306983.0

If you're looking for Proof-of-work where few people refers it as bitcoin puzzle where miners need to find hash less than current target, then check https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Proof_of_work or https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5024482.0
528  Economy / Service Announcements / Re: BitMaximum.io - More privacy during Bitcoin exchange / Coin mixer on: September 13, 2018, 05:58:11 PM
1) could You clarify the question please?
We do not really understand where in our system Schnorr Signature is needed and for what? It doesn't work anywhere else at all. This is a part of the fork of Bitcoin, when it will work fine no one knows! It seems to us that it is too early to talk about it. It have been talking for a year and a half about it, but still just toking. It's not even BIP yet. When this fork will be implemented and most nodes will support it, we will find a way to further maximize our customers with these new features, but now it is unnecessary.

AFAIK Schnorr Signature offers few features such as improved privacy and i simply thought people with privacy concern or privacy-centered services would be interested.

3) Bech32 is a new format of SEGWIT addresses. Making a deposit in our direction, we don't care what addresses will be sent bitcoins. We do not withdraw Bitcoin for Bech32, we don't support it.
To do this we need a little time, in the first half of September we will do it.
It is also necessary to check with our clients whether they want us to provide  Bech32 address to withdraw, is it necessary for somebody? If someone wants, we will do it in September. No problem.

While it's not really necessary since anyone just can use legacy/nested SegWit (using P2SH/address starts with '3'), i'm sure few people withdraw to Bech32 address use it if it's available. Besides, SegWit adaption slowly increasing.

What else did you expect from someone who is paying shills to bump his thread every couple hours? Roll Eyes

Too many shit/scam mixers in the market these days.

I agree, just by ask them few technical questions/seeing reply, it's clear they they're not expert at manage privacy/anonymity. At this point, using private and fungible cryptocurrency is better.

And how have you according our reply  made this conclusion?
AFAIK Schnorr Signature offers - it has not been launched anywhere else. This is not supported by any software yet.

I already mention that Schnorr Signature isn't launched/implemented indirectly when i ask you in earlier post. But anyway, i'm sure you will use Schnorr Signature once it's released/implemented and people know it's advantage.

I can not understand why we are criticized by people who has chipmixer in the signature?

It's just a coincidence, since those who wear it actually interested/know a lot about mixers. Just hear them and you might find an idea to improve your service.
529  Other / Meta / Re: Analysis of posts by senior members to improve the quality of forum content on: September 13, 2018, 05:50:04 PM
Even now, I worry about every post I've written, because I don`t know how it`ll be perceived by other members and whether it was useful to them. So I can imagine how people feel when they don`t understand what they are doing wrong, and why their posts go unnoticed or give in to severe criticism.

Why would you worry about posting your own opinion/knowledge, unless you've no idea about the topic or have controversial opinion.

What do I propose? I think that it would be useful and effective to create a special fixed topic in which each member of the forum could leave a statement for review and analysis of his posts (not all, of course, let`s say, the last 15-20. I think this will be enough for the overall picture). Senior members of the forum will review the history of comments of this member and write their wishes for improving posts, express constructive criticism. However, recommendations for improving the quality of posts should be practical, specific and unambiguous. For example, instead of saying the general phrase "improve your English", you need to make a specific note with reference to a certain post in which the sentence was built incorrectly. For senior members, this will give an opportunity to express their wishes and clarify what exactly they would like to change, and for beginners it`ll help to correct specific deficiencies and become better. Senior members for such "work" could be rewarded with rerits by merit-sources and admins (nothing else comes to mind as a reward).

There are already few thread with similar function you mentioned such as A simple bitcoin Q/A. Learn new and interesting stuff about bitcoin. and any thread which review your selected posts for merit.
But Senior member don't have obligation/responsible to help newcomers.
530  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Newbie in bitcoin on: September 13, 2018, 10:13:33 AM
I We need few information before we can help you including :
1. OS of your box or OS that you will use
2. Specification of your box (low-end CPU or low-amount RAM might have some limitation)

Since you plan to run full nodes, using Bitcoin Core's API RPC-JSON and short script/program should able to do the job. https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/API_reference_(JSON-RPC) and https://bitcoin.org/en/developer-examples should be handy as starter.
But i'd recommend grab software from GitHub/GitLab if you don't have programming knowledge.
531  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Are the bitcoin faucets no longer worth it? on: September 13, 2018, 03:12:33 AM
Yes, if you can't/don't want do any jobs and you believe Bitcoin price will rise a lot in future.
No, if you have other job or don't think Bitcoin price will rise in future.

Faucet is only useful for beginner to know more about Bitcoin works especially about address, transaction and wallet, but don't want/can't buy Bitcoin.
532  Bitcoin / Electrum / Re: Electrum receive wallet says "pending" ...how can I tell if transfer cleared? on: September 13, 2018, 03:03:38 AM
Pending is another term for unconfirmed transaction, so all you can do are :
1. Wait until the transaction is confirmed
2. Spend the input (aka CPFP) on a transaction with sufficient fees to speed up the confirmation time. Only use this option if you plan to use your Bitcoin immediately.

Most likely CEX.IO (and some exchanges) shows "complete" when they broadcast the transaction, not when it's included on block/confirmed.
533  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: What is bitcoin core? on: September 12, 2018, 06:58:11 PM
Googling Bitcoin core would've gave you a decent amount of answers: https://bitcoin.org/en/wallets/desktop/windows/bitcoincore/

Yes thanks for the reply but I am already using local  exchange online wallet.now I viewed the bitcoin core it was having more GB so whats the use of this

Don't use exchange wallet since you don't have access to your bitcoin (don't have access to private key/mnemonic seed), there are many wallets where you have full control without huge size such as Electrum and Coinomi.

And before you might ask questions, there's few obvious advantage using wallet i mentioned such as :
1. No one can lock/froze your Bitcoin
2. You can set your own transaction fees which is lower than exchange "wallet" most times
3. You could have better privacy/anonymity (depends on how secure is your connection and your habit)
4. If you forget your password, you can restore it with your mnemonic seed (assuming you made a backup previously)
534  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Rootstock (RSK) - Smart Contracts for Bitcoin on: September 12, 2018, 06:55:39 PM
While RSK (and various side-chain/off-chain technology) have great potential, but we know that all of them are ignored by Bitcoin community to the point the technology are used by altcoin or the developer make their own altcoin Sad
Besides, it's too complicated to peg/lock your Bitcoin and looking for the receiver who also use RSK. It's more convenient to exchange Bitcoin with smart-contract cryptocurrency whether through centralized exchange, DEX or atomic-swap.

RSK is not using actual bitcoins. its using a separate token that represents a 1 for 1 peg against a bitcoin.. and then that token is used offchain.
thus its not adding any smart contract features into bitcoin protocol. its getting people to swap thir bitcoin for RSK token and then having RSK network

though rsk is trying to be another "choice" of another second layer service thats not LN. both LN and RSK are trying to ppretend they are part of the bitcoin protocol, but in reality both not using bitcoins original peer-to-peer onchain, immutible permissionless ethos.

so treat it as a side service for niche usage. and not a thing you want to lock your funds into forever as a solution to bitcoin scaling

You don't need to mention the obvious details since it's already explained on it's main page.
535  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Testnet is under stress testing? on: September 12, 2018, 06:48:08 PM
It should be true and according to the documentation[1], it also say same thing. But there's no correlation between hashrate and stress testing since all you need to do are generate and broadcast lots of transaction.

Stress-testing is very wide term  Grin
I see now a lot of transactions and too big (in my opinion) hashrate.
I haven't analyzed yet the blocks and transactions themselves.



You're right, but if you ask people about cryptocurrency stress testing, majority would say high/increased amount of transaction. Not about unstable hashrate or other unusual test.
Can't say you will find out interesting result from your upcoming analyze besides raising TPS/hashrate.

537  Other / Meta / Re: Which discussion board to visit to really learn about cryptocurrency? on: September 12, 2018, 05:34:14 AM
Reading through the Development & Technical Discussion would probably be a great place for you to formulate pointed questions or conceptual questions and get the balling rolling. If you want to learn something about cryptocurrencies, simply decide what you'd like to learn and do research on that topic.

Bitcoin Technical Support also great section if you have technical question. Both section barely have spam since most spammer don't bother learn technical knowledge.
538  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: [New to Crypto?] Ask Any Crypto Question, I'll Answer on: September 11, 2018, 05:36:19 PM
Interesting thread. What do you think about privacy-optional coins such as Zcash and mandatory-privacy/fungible coins such as Monero (i'm not asking about price obviously)?
539  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Citibank is offering crypto custody. on: September 11, 2018, 05:27:15 PM
You may think it's a good news for the market, but in reality, it isn't for the long term. It is the start of the oligarchy take over and it isn't was what a cryptocurrency is supposed to be, but hey it isn't a problem for the majority of you since you have no problem to be ruled and get crypto regulations

They're aimed for investor or anyone who don't care about Bitcoin's advantage such as no-censorshop/have full control.

You may think it's a good news for the market, but in reality, it isn't for the long term. It is the start of the oligarchy take over and it isn't was what a cryptocurrency is supposed to be, but hey it isn't a problem for the majority of you since you have no problem to be ruled and get crypto regulations

If you think crypto would have any chance of real world use without regulations you are just dreaming..

Regulations are unavoidable, atleast crypto lets you control a lot of aspects yourself.

EDIT: I think this is cool news, opens up a lot of possibilities.

I agree that regulations are unavoidable, but with this custody, you lost many aspect that you control when you use real wallet. There are different kind of regulation which could be applied such as taxing when buy/pay something with bitcoin.
540  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: What do you think of these controversial statements of Andreas Antonopoulos on: September 11, 2018, 05:22:30 PM
IMO his statements completely makes sense since it's true :
1. JPMorgan and Chase don't bring much good continuance towards Bitcoin since they continuously attack Bitcoin and few people blindly trust them
2. While smart contract is amazing, there's huge limitation since most contract still need 3rd/trusted party and there's scalability trade-off
3. I've no idea about economic, but surely few parts are true.

But those statements only controversial to those who strongly believe on JPMorgan/Chase, smart contract technology or government Roll Eyes
