If your country has not developed legislation on cryptocurrencies, do not hurry to declare your income.  Personally, I  would not declare a profit in cryptocurrency. There is another option to go to another country and cash your coins there . But it's risky, too.

This seems to be the most sensible way to go about it... if there isn't 100% clear rules in what to do and what to expect, and if you can't find people that has done the same in the past and see how it went for them, you are basically being a guinea pig for the government as mentioned before.

So if anyone cashes out big amounts obtained through bounties like the signature campaigns in here, please let us known in detail how it went for you. Until then, we are just speculating.

I used to have that experience too, but after adding much more RAM and speed improvements within Bitcoin Core, I really don't mind anymore. I'm not going to test it, but I estimate it'll be done within 2 days (on a cheap laptop that's more than 3 years old).

How much RAM? safe (older) laptops tipically will only allow 8 GB and it's ddr2 ram.


I thought it would be a trivial thing to give a rescan-the-blockchain option at startup, but all it can do is rescan the wallet.
I've read that removing the chainstate forces a rescan, don't want to risk it (and I don't have the space to make a copy first). Any thoughts?.

Yes removing chainstate files forces a rescan and it's pretty safe as far as I know. You can force a rescan by adding "rescan=1" in bitcoin.conf file or with the terminal adding -rescan.

I will just keep the block files for now, can't be bothered with a full download from scratch. Chainstate files obviously were not imported from windows to linux setup so in theory the blocks that I imported should be valid.

My current experience more or less confirms the comments above. I decided to sync the external HDD using the small Ubuntu machine, which uses the external SSD normally. No problems connecting it, but it reports that it is 7 weeks behind, and at one point, it said that it would take 12 weeks to complete the sync. Smiley It's now dropped to 6 days, but I don't think I'll bother. The SSD is reasonably fast, and that's what I use daily. The 2Tb external HDD is really just a backup. The next plan is to create a Bitcoin1 and a Bitcoin2 directory on the HDD, and to use a file management program to move the Core sub-directories into them alternately.

For me, it is important to keep a backup of the blockchain, as I don't think I could handle downloading it again, especially as it is double the size of my original download.

How safe is to re-use blockchain files? could they have been compromised if they were in a windows setup in the past? At the beginning I was using windows to run Bitcoin Core, then I got a Linux setup and moved my block files in there to avoid downloading from scratch which is hell, but a part of me is paranoid about the fact that the block files were hosted in a Windows setup for a long time... I don't see how a hacker would be able to extract value from messing with the blocks file but still a bit paranoid about that. Im considering making a clean download from Linux from scratch but just thinking about it gives me an headache by how long it will take for it to sync.
1184  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Even air-gapped wallets aren't safe... on: April 26, 2018, 03:01:38 PM
you use a QR code to move the pre-signed transaction from the air gapped computer which has no access to internet in anyway.....

QR-Codes are like a red flag to a bull and says "Read me, i am a password" to the O/S

Your not selling any old 286/486 machines are you running NT 4 with a 10baseT network card are you because I think we need to
go back to them days to own one of these things they use to call a "personal computer"

CD-Rom, no updates, just service pack II, lovely days.

The idea of using QR codes is that you don't connect any device to the offline computer. So you put the hash of the pre signed transaction in the hot node avoiding devides.. this is better than nothing and way safer than transporting raw transactions with an USB, and im not going to burn a CD just to carry basically some lines of text, which I will dump in a text editor and analyze before entering it in the clients just in case the QR is modified somehow during the process which is just insane paranoid mode.

And yes computers haven't been safe for ages but pre 2008 computers with libreboot seem to be as good as it gets for freedom these days it seems, older ones are just unusable.

I have never seen conclusive proof of someone being censored because of their opinions here. Franky1 for instance has been talking about how awesome big blocks are for years and he is a Legendary member.

Wanna see my inbox, full of deleted message warnings and if you think you have freedom of speech here then try presenting an argument that
miners have become a greedy monopoly and that Bitcoin is well past it's sell by date and then report back to me.

Your not trying hard enough !

There's plenty of people claiming mining is centralized, I don't see the problem which such clam. As long as you aren't spamming the forum the posts will remain, at least in my experience. I mean even Core devs which are admins in this forum claim mining is centralized (Luke-jr for instance).
1185  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Even air-gapped wallets aren't safe... on: April 25, 2018, 04:25:03 PM
Before I reply I would like to say that the ministry of Bitcoin propaganda runs this forum and keeps removing posts.

I looked into these air-gap bridges and you can download apps from play store that produce spectra graphs and you can
even send and receive cartoon like images using nothing more than sound.

Turns out that some TV adverts are using sound to communicate with apps ruining on "Smart Phone" so this is not science
fiction and is fact.

Developers should keep away from using any microsoft blackbox code and the same goes for google android code that's
all over our phones because "They" are years ahead of where we think they are when it comes to steeling our data.








I have never seen conclusive proof of someone being censored because of their opinions here. Franky1 for instance has been talking about how awesome big blocks are for years and he is a Legendary member.

Anway to go back on topic: The reason an airgapped computer defeats a hardware wallet is that you can avoid using the USB to access the wallet. The wallet is always inside the airgapped computer, and you use a QR code to move the pre-signed transaction from the air gapped computer which has no access to internet in anyway, to an online node. So this way you avoid the USB vector attack. I don't see how trusting a third party device is better than that.

I think there is a fine line between what a high-level, over-funded governement agency like the NSA, the NKVD or the mossad *could potentially* do, and what they *will* do...
It's not a tale of what's technically possible, but about which level of paranoid you are, and about the odds of being the victim of a (mostly) 3 letter agency.

I remember reading some leaked documents by Snowden, apparently the NSA hates Tor because they can't do much about it. Google "Tor stinks". Unless they have advanced in their methods to de-anonymize people, last time we know their opinion was that they had huge problems with it. As far as I know, there is no evidence of someone using Tails with all scripts disabled behind deanonymized ever.

M personally im not worried, since I don't do anything illegal, I just use Tor to hide my IP from the huge amount of scammers in the Bitcoin world constantly trying to dox and steal your coins.

Like you said, for small things they will not bother... if the owner of a mixer is not moving a lot of money they may not bother, but if in 10 years there's a mixing service moving $billions then he better have perfect anonymity because I doubt governments will just sit and watch as huge amounts are mixed.
1187  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Hard Drive Speed running a Core Node on: April 25, 2018, 02:25:51 PM
Is this fast enough to run a core node? On Bitcoin.org it recommends 100 MB/s.
This doesn't make much sense, as the disk access time is much more important than sequential read write speed. Do you have a link to this recommendation? Could it be the internet speed they recommend to run a node?

To share my 2 cents out of my own experience: I would just install Bitcoin Core, let it create it's default ~/.bitcoin directory on your SSD, then close it.
Then, inside the .bitcoin-directory, move the blocks-directory to your external HDD, and create a simlink to the new location. While you're doing this anyway, create a backup of your wallet.dat.
Start Bitcoin Core again. Most disk activity happens in the chainstate-directory, which is now on your fast SSD. The blocks directory is on your large HDD.

Note though that you should make absolutely sure your USB disk doesn't disconnect while running Bitcoin Core!

achow101 doesn't recommend using symlinks, it can lead to blockchain corruption. Everything must be on the same folder, blocks and chainstate files. Even after the latest updates where you can select where to put the wallet.dat, this doesn't change chaintate and blocks folder must be on the same place.

In my opinion one should try to save money monthly until you can afford an SSD of 1TB of storage, which should last you for years to host the blockchain. HDD disks take a massive toll when validating the blockchain due high i/o activity, the headers may break eventually due wear and tear, maybe you end up saving money long term investing in an SSD.
1188  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: How to know if a wallet.dat is a BTC wallet or an altcoin (small trick) on: April 25, 2018, 02:12:16 PM
Nice trick, i didn't expect it works on encrypted wallet.dat. But some text editor show wallet.dat content on different format (such as Hex) when it can't recognize the format (such as Sublime Text 3). I think it would be great if there's example of finding the address on wallet.dat
Also, does all "default" wallet software use same format?

I found the trick works on wallet.dat that are encrypted too, simply because the part of the address list and the transaction history is unencrypted... this is obvious since anyone can open anyone's wallet.dat with the full client and see their addresses and transaction history. The only thing locked is transacting.

I always wanted the full wallet to be encrypted so in case anyone tries to see your transaction history and addresses they couldn't access it. I don't know why the design decision was to not fully encrypt the thing.
1189  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Even air-gapped wallets aren't safe... on: April 24, 2018, 06:13:06 PM
It's a really unrealistic scenario. You shouldn't be taking off your raspberry pi/airgapped laptop out of your house ever, you should only open it when there are no cameras around. If there are phones are around, there are cameras around too... and you can assume someone has recorded you entering your wallet password and so on, so why would you go out with your cold storage device.

Just keep it at home safe, use QR codes to move your pre-signed transactions into the hot node to broadcast it safely and you should be ok. If you want to go insane mode, you can buy a faraday cage tent and only turn on the computer inside.
1190  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: Legality of sending cryptocurrency as payment for completing online surveys? on: April 24, 2018, 05:25:06 PM
I guess it could be seen as an investment in marketing. You are basically using a prize to bring people into your website to increase traffic... it would be like when Youtubers do giveaways to do certain things in order to increase traffic.

I wouldn't worry unless I was dealing with huge amounts of money, but try to be sure that things are legal, otherwise you may face problems in the future. I would look for certain thresholds. Like looking for certain limits in which a giveaway may turn into something else if you are moving massive amounts of money in terms of prize payouts for filling the survey in this case. If you have an huge site and you are paying millions worth of crypto from people filling your surveys, things may get complicated.
1191  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: Signature Campaigns taxes on: April 24, 2018, 05:11:34 PM
It is true that it is very difficult to prove ownership of crypto done by the taxpayer, and I honestly have never paid taxes from the results of crypto, and probably because there is no rule in my country.
I don't think that the government will become strict in the campaigns as it is just temporary, for me what they would focus is the income from trading your money, or by simply holding it, since by just simple holding you are gaining from it.

If you go from one campaign to another, and most do given the opportunity since if you are going to be posting anyway you must as well get paid for it, the activity no longer becomes an sporadic one, so in theory it is income taxable.. but like I said before, if you haven't reported anything for years and it has increased a ton in price, you are at risk of getting fucked by the state in a bad way, since we don't know what to expect. Im willing to pay taxes when I want to buy a house, but I want a fair deal, I don't want my money to be stolen under a legal pretense.

Give me some evidence of someone cashing out a big amount of BTC earned in signature campaigns not previously reported for years and then we will know what to expect, at least in the respective jurisdiction.
But as a smart person we wont really do such thing on making them or showing evidences right? If we do know the law of our country is too strict when it comes to tax then its normal for us to get worried on not paying up taxes because sooner or later there would be problems would be faced specially when you are already engaging into big amounts but yet we are just talking about signature campaign taxes i dont really bother too much yet the amount isnt really too big at all to consider.

Again, it's not that you get paid much... it's that Bitcoin goes up in value over time.

If you participate in signature campaigns as an Hero+ Member for a year, you could make around 1 BTC on average, at current rates. Let's say you do and save that 1 BTC. You didn't report your monthly income which is not much, but in 5 to 10 years your 1 BTC is now worth $1,000,000, so now you have $1,000,000 of unreported money. What would you do then, if you wanted to buy some real estate? that's what we are dealing with in here. We already know bounties don't pay much, but when you get paid in BTC and you hold it, sky is the limit long term.
1192  Economy / Speculation / Re: BTC Struggling to Reach Over 9K on: April 24, 2018, 04:33:10 PM
We have been out of the bear trend for a while now guys... you can expect $12k-13k, around that area we may be stuck for a long time if we don't get our shit together quick. Im going to be monitoring the price but I will not stress over lower prices than $5900 which in my opinion was the bottom and we aren't going to be lower than that ever again.

If we can sustain above $10k for a long enough period of time I can see FOMO'ing to $30k since investors may assume we will never go below $10k ever again, and at some point that will be a fact.

There are many other ways in which BCash proponents are losing money. For instance, Roger Ver has spent a fortune on propaganda, and spamming the Bitcoin mempool as well for months.

Jihan Wu has also spent so much money on this, mining empty blocks and so on. All of this will only give them short term rise in price in fiat terms, long term it's not sustainable, the fundamentals are still crewed. I wouldn't be surprised that at some point BCash will raise their total supply. Everything is possible without strong fundamentals. If people actually use BCash at scale and blocks become full, only a few centralized datacenters will be deciding on the monetary policy of Bitcoin.

Segwit was not part of the original Bitcoin system and never will be. It promotes something completely different than what is stated in the Satoshi whitepaper.

Can you explain this with more details? What was in the whitepaper and why is Bitcoin now "completely" different? This is not an attack, I want to know what you are talking about. I am as lost as most newbies here sometimes.

Plus look, if Roger Ver controls @Bitcoin, someone else controls this, https://twitter.com/btc. Hahaha.

There's a difference... whoever controls https://twitter.com/btc it's not pitching an altcoin as Bitcoin. In any case, this is a propaganda war on both sides. It's funny seeing people bash each other on social media. Im sure Roger Ver is going to be mad at the btc twitter account now and will try to bribe the owner into making it a BCash shilling central as well just like the @Bitcoin one.

1196  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / How to know if a wallet.dat is a BTC wallet or an altcoin (small trick) on: April 24, 2018, 02:27:15 PM
I often see people talking about this, asking about how they can know where a certain wallet.dat file belongs to.

Well I have found a small and useful trick that could help. You simply open your wallet.dat file, with any text editor of choice, and use ctrl+f to search for "name"" and if your wallet.dat file had any addresses, you will find them there. Now you just have to look at the format and you'll know. (If they begin with 1, it's BTC, if they begin with L, it's LTC...). Most have very recognizable formats. In the case of doubt, just enter the address in the block explorers you suspect the address belongs to look for any funds. This way you don't have to wait for it to sync to see if your wallet matches the client. And this is the trick I've been using when I found random wallet.dat files.
1197  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Everyone needs to report the @Bitcoin twitter handle immediately on: April 24, 2018, 12:23:47 AM


Yes, it is easy to claim that I am wrong after the relevant image was removed. And no, I haven't said that the image explicitly say "all nodes are Hangzhou Alibaba Advertising Co." It did however convey the idea that all nodes are connected to Hangzhou Alibaba Advertising Co., Ltd. - while it is not the case. The best part: You had the audacity to use it as proof that Bitcoin Cash is not decentralized. If that is not manipulation, what is? Please don't answer.

Ehh, what are you talking about? the image is still here:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3369820.msg35321433#msg35321433

The image is just pointing out at the fact that a ton of BCash nodes are hosted by the same party, which in terms of decentralization it's useless. Facts remain.

Segwit was not part of the original Bitcoin system and never will be. It promotes something completely different than what is stated in the Satoshi whitepaper. In addition, if "BCash is too small for anyone to bother" as you claim, why do you bother? Again, you're wrong about Bitcoin Cash being centralized. It is the Segwit hack that is centralized via Blockstream. The bankster funded company that pushed for 'consensus' via censorship and manipulation. It is clear that you've taken a page out of their play book.

Again, cult of satoshi in full effect. I bother with BCash because Roger Ver is misselading noobs into buying an altcoin while saying it's Bitcoin, already happened to some people I know, they told me why my coins are worth 9 times more. This needs to end.

And again, more nonsense about censorship. There's plenty of censorship in BCash's side, on the githubs and on social media. The Bitcoin twitter handle is blocking everyone claiming how BCH is not Bitcoin for instance.

In addition, the whitepaper says "peer to peer cash". When your huge blocks get attacked and the nodes become huge mammoths that people cannot host, it will be centralized inside datacenters, so it will no longer be peer to peer but peer to corporation running a node to peer, and certainly not cash.

As Paul Ramlac stated in response to that article: "I don’t see the link between GitHub contributions and control of a project. A corporate takeover happens through social games rather than code. If anything, you make a stronger case for a Blockstream takeover: with few coders on the team, one might assume other Blockstream members are hard at work on other fronts. For example, persuading the public, and by extent Bitcoin developers who are not part of Blockstream, of the legitimacy of Blockstream’s vision for Bitcoin" (Source: https://medium.com/@paulramlach_60688/i-dont-see-the-link-between-github-contributions-and-control-of-a-project-c897aa6a597).

Again ridiculous, hilarious to complain against "social attacks" when Roger Ver is the biggest social attacker in crypto, using all sorts of social media to pumps his altcoins. Looks like propaganda is not propaganda if the propaganda meets your agenda.

Yes, it is not God's Word, but it is with reason called the Satoshi or Bitcoin whitepaper. There is zero support in it for Segwit and the Lightning network. No true supporters of a project will sit idle while impostors come in, change things from what is explicitly stated in the project's whitepaper and steal the name via manipulation and censorship. And why would Bitcoin "no longer be a decentralized project" if it was not for the Segwit hack? 1 TB hard drives come pretty much standard nowadays - and it is only the beginning of what is possible.

Bitcoin transactions were cheap before the deliberate attempt to prevent the Bitcoin system from scaling. It is funny that Bitcoin Cash - that scales on the Bitcoin system - offers on-chain transactions that are faster and more than 2245% cheaper (when I checked yesterday) than what the Segwit hack has to offer. The technology exists, but the banksters and their buddies had to move consensus away through manipulation and censorship in order to gain control. Unlucky for them, Satoshi left room for consensus to move as well - so that those who wish to support the Bitcoin as envisioned by Satoshi, have the opportunity to do so.

In short: We support the Bitcoin defined in the Satoshi whitepaper despite its shortcomings - real and perceived. And will stand against all attempts to bring something else in and call it Bitcoin (such as the Segwit hack).

P.S. And in terms of name calling, given that you call us cashies, perhaps we should start calling you seggies and lighties for fun. Grin

I don't care about segwit, I haven't even used it except in a couple of occasions when the sender required me to do so, same goes for LN. I think it's very interesting technology and I will watch it develop, but that's all, Bitcoin #1 priority is a solid, robust gold 2.0, hosted in a battlefield-ready network, not a stupid token to buy coffee with, that is secondary. I wish we could have both, but we can't as of right now. It's how things are. If we can achieve that use through the LN then so be it, but don't fuck up the decentralized, censorship resistant store of value property as a result, because we only have one shot. If Bitcoin fails at being a censorship resistant store of value, no altcoin will ever do it, so anyone attempting to do that will end up facing severe consequences, since you are playing with $billions worth of holder's money. Not smart to piss them off.

What we should start considering now is a class action lawsuit. More and more poor newbies are lossing their hard earned money by buying BCash, as misguided by Roger Ver, when the poor newbies think they just got their first Bitcoins. This is simply insane.

Granted, people should do their homework before buying, but let's try to empathize for once and you'll see how it's normal that if you see Bitcoin.com, twitter.com/Bitcoin and other websites telling you to buy, you may buy and when you realize it's an altcoin it will be too late, we could avoid this by reporting the twitter account as I suggested here.

I'm still working on  it, but I think I'm screwed.
I've tried to send to my own, new ones and external addresses and they all do the same.
The wallet has a bunch of addresses on it, including the one which got some solo mining blocks but I'm not sure which one that was since. In the transaction history it just shows the incoming mined btc but not the address.
Are you sure it's Bitcoin and not altcoins? I'm asking, because many of the similar threads on this board turned out to have a wallet.dat created by some altcoin.

If you really do have solo mined blocks, you're looking at enough money to contact a specialist if needed. Someone like Dave, but be very careful who you trust.

I have found a way to see if a wallet.dat file is a Bitcoin file or an altcoin file.

Assuming you had funds there or generated any address, if you open it with Wordpad or any other text editor, you can ctrl+f and search "name"", and you'll see the list of addresses you had on that wallet, so if they begin with "1..." it will be a Bitcoin wallet, assuming it's not BCash or any other alt which uses also "1..." format but most altcoins use their own number or letter.

Lol.. I wouldn't do it for such amount. I mean sure, 10 BTC will be a fortune eventually, but having to deal with the annoyance of having "Bitcoin" for your name is pretty insane. For 100 BTC I would do it, since by the time the 5 year period ends I would be so rich that being named "Bitcoin" would actually be cool.

But ideally, I would need 1000 BTC, then I would change surname as well. I would also call my pets, potential kids and anything else Bitcoin as well.
