1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Base 64 characters? Bitcoin docx file on: March 29, 2021, 10:00:28 PM
You can safely test if you have Base64 input and what it encodes by running the following Python code in your local interpreter.

Code:
import base64
string = input("Input base64 here: ")
string_decode = base64.decodestring(string)
print("Decoded string:")
print(string_decode)

I would avoid using online base64 decoders if you think you might have a private key, since you have no idea if the data is logged server-side.

I assume you already have python installed based on your previous support questions about pywallet.
I might have to send the file to someone trusted to have a look at as I'm not sure what I'm doing. I have got python 2.7 installed but it is a lot of text to enter in a command line. Thanks for your time.

Could you please just provide more clarification on what the text is? I still have no idea how the text looks. Is it 70 character blocks? Or is it 70x50 blocks? Is there a new line after each 70 characters? Did you copy paste these files from somewhere or do you remember if you gnerated them yourself the first time?

Each block is about 70 characters long and about 50 lines deep.

What?

Purchased 200$ worth of amazon credits, items ordered and everything looking good so far, will update trust rating when they ship and arrive!

The first items shipped and made it! Bought another 300$, went smooth as well.

Hope claims that as a private company his enterprise is not bound by the Outer Space Treaty. However, experts in space law have argued that if nation states cannot lay claim to outer space, then by implication neither can citizens or businesses of that state.

As Dr Stuart says, "At the risk of disappointing any proud owners, claims to land would be very unlikely to be upheld under international law and in any case several companies claimed the same plots of land many times over."

THAT's his loophole? Lol.

9  Economy / Economics / FTX adds Paypal deposits on: March 02, 2021, 12:12:05 PM
According to their CEO tweet :

https://twitter.com/SBF_Alameda/status/1366614366435483651

1) you can now get *instant* fiat deposits on FTX

2) you can now deposit *any currency*, more or less.  Paypal converts for you.

3) Paypal charges are fees!  If you're doing a large transfer, wires are slower but cheaper.

4) credit card deposits work through it!

It's feasible today through their platform :



What do you guys think?

So now only found that BTC gone to binance, not sure yet, but wrote mail to them.
If it is Binance then I think it is possible to identify this Robbber, but with help of police.

I hate to break this to you, but Binance will not help you track your stolen money. The most they have is possibly the identity of the attacker if he did KYC but let's be honest, what kind of thief sends money to a KYC'd address? And also Binance ignores tracking requests from random people and would only step in if forced to by a government.

Police are of limited use as well if the thief can't be ID'd.

This should serve as a lesson to everyone to always protect your wallets with a strong password. It's money after all, more important than nearly any other login information.

Binance most definitely will help him.



Open a ticket with binance or speak to live chat (it takes a while to queue for live chat). Best case scenario is this thief was KYC'd, worst case scenario he used binance to "mix" the money, and they only know his e-mail and IP (potentially behind a VPN). It doesn't harm to try though.

How did he do it? I have traded on Binance P2P thrice in the past and everything went smoothly. Did he just didn't send you the BTC after you sent the Paypal $? Please let me know when their support get back to you, because I'll probably stop using them if they don't do the right thing. Tongue

I'm the one that sent crypto and received PP. Most people here claiming "I've never been scammed" should be more careful. The concept of selective scamming is simple :

1. Have a "perfectly legitimate account" with valid KYC
2. Fake trades with other "legitimate accounts"
3. Build a profile such as the one above
4. Receive 1 trade from someone outside your fake trades network
5. Scam them with your "legitimate account"

Sometimes verification of kyc details will not really help you identify these, and the scammer could even be able to provide selfies. Just be more careful.


More importantly, verified account with check mark beside their username could actually help.

This is interesting, I've browsed listings and didn't see these until today. What does "verified" imply?
12  Economy / Reputation / Scammed using Binance P2P, be careful, also looking for aussie to help on: February 28, 2021, 07:35:02 PM
I got scammed using Binance P2P.

The seller's username was chalupa, they had over 500+ trades with a very high "completion" ratio, and a full ID-ed profile. I used Paypal, I know I should have asked for an ID and a selfie to verify the person had the correct details, but I considered the high profile rating something worthy of trust, it wasn't.

Here's the binance profile of this seller :



I think these scammers are running fake account networks, and wash trading between each other to pump up the numbers in the ratings, while in reality they don't really mean much. I made sure to report the profile to support, but I'm making this post to warn other users on here to not trust anyone on Binance P2P, this "selective scamming" problem is extremely hard to pinpoint, because the seller could scam select users and still continue operations that increase their profile ratings for every single scam they pull off. Please only trade in small amounts until you build your own list of trusted people.

Also, I'm trying to recover my funds and if there's any Australian willing to help me out it'd be appreciated, there is someone I need to contact there related to this situation. (I'll leave a tip!) Cheers!

Conclusion:
Either I'm not good enough at python, python is the wrong tool, or the cut and paste was too big to brute force.
This may sound obvious but have you tried to actually test the code you wrote with an example? The problem may be in your code.
Choose some of the variations (with 1, 2, 3, ... transposition) at random and generate their addresses then enter that address in your code and start the search to see if it can find the correct answer. This way you can be sure that your code is fine.

This is what I meant, or share the code you used. Sorry if it sounds a bit rude but all we have is your word that "it doesnt work", have you really tested your code correctly and verified that even after iterating through all the options it didnt work? Are you sure you're generating the seed using the same method bitaddress.org uses? Are you sure you're checking the address using the right derivation? There's so many things you have to double check to see if your code is correct that I'm more inclined to believe it's something wrong on your end, not the dice roll or the cut.
15  Bitcoin / Wallet software / Re: Dice wallet with a twist of regret on: February 21, 2021, 04:08:52 PM
I know a fair amount of python and have already attempted this.  If the cut and paste was three consecutive numbers:  There are 97 different three number groups. 

1) 1st,2nd,3rd digits
2) 2nd,3rd,4th


96)  96th, 97th,98th digits
97) 97th,98th, 99th digits


Assuming that cut number has to go somewhere else, there are 96 spots for it to be inserted.  97*96 = 9312 possibilities

With four digits   96*95 = 9120
Assuming 5 digits  95*94 = 8930

Its trivial to write a python script to test all these possibilities, then convert the Base 6 number to the corresponding public/private key pair and test if there is a match. 


Conclusion:
Either I'm not good enough at python, python is the wrong tool, or the cut and paste was too big to brute force.

This sounds reasonable, what's your problem? Have you successfully coded the "dice roll to private key" part?

19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Old wallet.dat from 2011 on: February 20, 2021, 05:26:18 PM
Hello, I was given a wallet.dat file from a friend to try and recover anything on it. I am using pywallet. I have no idea what any of the public addresses are associated with this wallet. This wallet was also supposedly made before wallet encryption was mandatory.

When I run python pywallet.py --dumpwallet --wallet=wallet.dat  > ~/wallet.dat.json

I get:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "pywallet.py", line 2316, in parse_wallet
    item_callback(type, d)
  File "pywallet.py", line 2716, in item_callback
    json_db[type] = 'unsupported'
  File "pywallet.py", line 111, in __setitem__
    return super(Bdict, self).__setitem__(bytes_to_str(k), v)
  File "pywallet.py", line 90, in bytes_to_str
    return k.decode()
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xa1 in position 0: ordinal not in range(128)


any ideas?

Could you try findwallet and see if it still works?

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5071775.0

Please install it first, then disconnect & run it offline. It should extract and dump the private keys in a text file in the same folder.
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: findwallet - Bitcoin Core Wallet Finder on: February 20, 2021, 03:12:25 PM
I've looked into it, and while I couldn't really work around the Windows 10 permission issue, (It's out of my hands, you just simply can't get read access on some folders or files as they might be currently used by other core processes) I added a flag that ignores errors and will keep scanning even if it runs into inaccessible files.

I wish I could manually handle that error when that happens, but it would need me to rewrite my own scanning code and I currently don't have that much time to sink into this.

https://github.com/isaacs/node-glob/issues/284#issuecomment-297567660

The issue is currently still open, and I would like to not lose the dependency on "glob" because it is THE fastest reading package I've tested. I've also updated all versions while I was at it.

So while this won't run into permission errors anymore, you still should know that it will skip files it doesn't have permission to access, if you suspect your wallet was in one of those files, simply plug the drive externally, or run it on a unix-based system.
