581  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: my transaction fee is too low . what should i do now? on: September 10, 2018, 02:53:17 PM
Since the transaction already confirmed, there's few things you want to consider next time :
1. Make sure you set fee which is suitable for your needs (1 sat/byte for non-important TX and higher for important TX). Website such as https://coinb.in/#fees and https://bitcoinfees.earn.com/ should be good, however https://bitcoinfees.earn.com/ tends to over-estimate fees for next-block/fast confirmation.
2. If you still unsure/confused, you should use wallet which support RBF (Replace-by-fee) which make and broadcast your transaction, but with higher fees.
3. If you accidentally sent TX with low-fee again and your wallet don't support RBF, you could try contact the receiver to spend the bitcoin/input to make your TX could confirmed faster.

But generally you don't need to worry about set low fees, unless time/speed is important in your case Smiley

I've never understood what these 2 lines are on https://bitcoinfees.earn.com/

I assumed the lines that contain a number are the number of transactions in a queue with that given amount of sats per byte. Is this correct?

For instance, 1-2 and then the 2 lines, 2783 in orange is number of transactions on 1say/byte and 39729 grey is number of transacting on the 2says/byte.

What I find confusing is.. why would people pay 2 sats instead of 1 when 1 is way less crowded?

Pesonally I just use whatever is in 0-3 delay so around 5 sats these days.



Frankly i'm not sure either between :
1. Unconfirmed transactions and Transactions today
2. Transactions in mempool in last 336 hours or transactions in last 24 hours

But according to mempool size and daily bitcoin transaction count, most likely the 2 lines on bitcoinfees.earn.com represent 2nd option. Honestly i just take a look at "Fees" and "Delay" fields since those 2 information is good enough to determine how much fees should i set.

Yeah probably the second option, it just does an average I guess.

Im not sure, I will just keep using 0-3 delay or whatever is next to the huge crowded options. Bitcoin Core is recommending really cheap fees these days, so I guess you can't really go wrong as long as you pay above the minimum of 1000 sats. I think nowadays even with 1000 sats your transaction will eventually confirm, mempool is really empty. So much for big blockers predicting the end of the world.. there's clearly not that much transactional demand for bitcoin, most people are just buying and holding.

583  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: wallet.dat import ? on: September 10, 2018, 12:22:07 PM
and what can i do whith finded wallet.dat files ? nothing or ? evry wallet dat is encrypted with a password or passpharse..or im incorect ?

The wallet.dat files are not encrypted by default. They are encrypted only if you manually entered a password which you must be able to remind, otherwise you will never be able to access your coins ever again. Your only chance would be bruteforcing the password but if it's more than 8 characters it's pretty much game over. I have forgotten passwords in the past and you can consider whatever is encrypted as lost forever if you don't have a good memory.

Also it doesn't take 9 years. It means that you are rewinding 9 years worth of blocks, not that it will take actual 9 years for the bar to fill.
584  Economy / Speculation / Re: Anybody thinks insiders did not Short before the Goldman Sachs news? on: September 10, 2018, 03:52:23 AM
I have heard a bunch of different news now being pointed to the latest dump, including:

-Pirate Robert's coins moved
-MtGox coins moved
-Satoshi coins moved
-Goldman Sachs has decided to not do whatever it was doing with "crypto"

Probably some other bunch im missing.

The point is, different people point to different news and react to them differently. At the end of the day, all of that is useless if you didn't had the insider info.

From the research i've done, it's just MtGox relate coins moving again, nothing new.

Weak hands will keep looking at whatever news out there to justify their weak hands. Just keep buying the big dips and long term you shall win.

I find these posts very similar in style of other's that I've seen in various threads. You might want to check this thread where I pointed to perhaps a big account farmer:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5024607.msg45444713

They may all be from the same farmer? if that's the case, then I would be very impressed at his dedication, there's a ton of accounts there, maybe 50? no wonder some of the posts are repeated, it would be impossible to take care of so many at once.
586  Other / Meta / New Tor error? on: September 10, 2018, 02:18:07 AM
I have never seen this one before:

Quote
"reCAPTCHA has apparently marked your IP address as suspicious, and refuses to tell me whether you actually solved the CAPTCHA. If you go back and retry it several times, it will eventually work. If you are using Tor, going to Onion->New Identity might immediately fix it. "

It's a "An Error Has Occurred!" box after completing the captcha. I always got the classic "incorrect catpcha" error but not this one.

It points me to use "New Identity" button but since Tor 8.0 update I can't find it. Only "new circuit" one which is also changed, now showing up in the green https candle thing.

Anyone knows how to do the "New Identity" reset in new Tor?
587  Economy / Economics / Re: Capitalism will make socialist ideals a reality on: September 09, 2018, 04:23:53 PM
The truth is, as automation continues improving and getting rid of jobs, on a long enough timeline the majority of people will be rendered out of any possible employment. At that point what you have is a ton of people unable to meet coverage of basic needs.

So what are you going to do about it? I only see two options:

-Minimum wage of sorts is implemented to avoid massive rioting due big amounts of desperate people within your country.

-Annihilation of population: The elite gets rid of the masses because they no longer need them (and guess what, we are the masses, don't be deluded to think otherwise)

Outlook looking not so good. And I don't care if it takes 20 or 1000 years, eventually machines will be able to do most tasks.

How Bitcoin will play out in this scenario? who knows, but the sane thing is to be holding a decent amount just in case.
588  Other / Meta / Re: Massive account farmer? on: September 09, 2018, 04:00:29 PM
Indeed. Perhaps the merit system motivates them even more than before to farm a bunch of accounts because they know that they will never reach an higher status, so they are taking an approach that's basically joining the lowest requirement campaigns and stacking up all the little rewards into something that's probably worth them for them in a 3rd world country.

I think that lots of users just aren't aware of the merit system and if they are, aren't fully aware of what it means for them (them being new users). It's the hope that they can grow the accounts and farm them for sig campaigns/sell on to others to participate in sig campaigns that incentivises them to farm. If they were fully aware of the merit system I think we'd actually see fewer account farmers as they'd realise that their efforts would be futile.


I guess they have looked at the campaign requirements before starting a big account farming operation and they have assumed that the effort to reward ratio is favorable for them. I don't think they so dumb to start farming a bunch of accounts without a clear goal in mind... who the hell would do that? they must have something to gain.

I haven't looked at what the requirements are currently for low paying campaigns but im sure there are some gigs out there that may not even require much merit. For instance the campaigns that will get you on board if you join their telegram, post on twitter and other social media related to the project.. they may not care about merit at all.

Trying to enforce rules on minimum requirement campaigns is not of my taste.. people should be free to require whatever they want as a manager. It's the mods duty to clean the most obvious spammers.
589  Other / Meta / Re: Massive account farmer? on: September 09, 2018, 02:25:36 PM
You may be right as they based their argument around Satoshi Nakamoto being the founder of BTC but it is not enough to really to tag all of them as farmed accounts. The good thing is they are low ranking accounts which if they are really farmed accounts their value would be less compared to Sr. Members and above. Here we can see that the merit system is also stopping the advancement of this kinds of business as ranking up one account is hard to do what more if you are trying to rank up multiple accounts with your spammy plagiarized posts?


I think it's pretty obvious, this one looks like he didn't even realize he copy-pasted the same comment:

Satoshi nakamoto the anonymous name of the bicoin inventor. He has a wallet but is it belongs satoshi nakamoto. I have some  confusion about that but if I wrong then sorry for that.

Satoshi nakamoto the anonymous name of the bicoin inventor. He has a wallet but is it belongs satoshi nakamoto. I have some  confusion about that but if I wrong then sorry for that.

Theymos could look at IP's to see if they are all the same. I think this guy may not be bright enough to switch IP's between accounts to make it less obvious... given how obvious it at least seems on the surface just judging by posting styles.

Nothing too wrong? They're pure shit spread over dozens of accounts, but that's bitcointalk for you. Ball is in theymos' court now if he wants to do something about it.

You missed these ones as well:

They belong to a farmer who was farming hundreds of accounts and I've probably banned 50+. All his usernames were just two random words put together. He's now joined a ICO campaign on those two and god knows how many others. This is why Juniors and Newbies need their signature removing completely.

You may not have understood what I meant. I basically said that if it was just one account, the posts could be understandable in the context of a noob that just joined the forum and has no idea and is just learning, mixed with probably not native english. Not the end of the world.

The problem is of course this is just the same guy spamming with a million accounts. If anything, this proves that the merit system has not really stopped farmers motivation in continuing going at it.

I still believe more resources should be put into account recovery. Once that is sorted once and for all then put more resources in stopping these guys. For now just ban hammer these obvious dupes.
591  Economy / Economics / Bitcoin must be hated by noobs in order to end the bear market? on: September 08, 2018, 07:41:15 PM
Maybe the bear market will continue until we have everyone that came after 2016 hating Bitcoin. At $6k the price is still good enough for most noobs to not hate it, I think we may need to go deeper until noobs become insane at low prices and are demoralized out of the game.

We also need some CNBC opportunist like Mike Novogratz giving up. Or Vinny Lingham, someone big giving up, sort of Mike Hearn style. These moments are the defining points of the end of a bear market, when someone goes stupidly pessimistic big time and all the noobs with no notions on the fundamentals of Bitcoin give up and call it dead.

The question is, how low it will go before that happens, and will it happen, or the bottom has already been set and we are now in denial about it?
592  Other / Meta / Massive account farmer? on: September 08, 2018, 06:58:51 PM
I was replying in a thread and I found like an entire page of newbie accounts replying, and it seemed a bit too similar in style, basically the classic bitcointalk broken english goodness, but this is special because he didn't even bother making it less obvious, it seems he went full commando:

Satoshi nakamoto the anonymous name of the bicoin inventor. He has a wallet but is it belongs satoshi nakamoto. I have some  confusion about that but if I wrong then sorry for that.

No, This news can't be true. Satoshi is the father of this technology and an expert economist can't do it. why he is selling so much Bitcoin right now when price is slightly low, not selling in the beginning of the year while price was so high. whatever, This is not the right time to sold Bitcoin.

I am getting this kind of news for a long time but it sounds like baseless rumor to me. Besides if he has this amount of Bitcoin I donít think he would be able to sell with current price

I think this news has no base and probably fake. I have seen so many news about Satoshi Nakamatoís asset and huge amount of Bitcoin but got no proof about those. Thatís why it looks fake to me

How it is possible! The father of Bitcoin making lose.why didn't he seel at the very begining of this year when price was so high. I cann't believe the informations.

This is insane. This is really a huge amount of money and I think no can beat this man with this amount of asset. If he sells his Bitcoin I think the price will be plummeted and the market will be drowned

I first welcome Satoshi, the father of Bitcoin technology. I think this news is fake.According to you, he is selling 111000 bitcoins whilst bitcoins price is low, why he didn't sell them beginning of this year when price was high. I don't believe this news.

After researching about the Bitcoin community members i can find a person name "Satoshi Nakamato"has huge wallet containing over $802 million.

The article is not clearly clarify that Nakamoto belong this wallet . Itís a good news that the wallet is active after long time. We can not surely that Nakamoto own this. It need prove to know the truth behind it.

we get to know or hear many news regrading this place,  it is not important that every single of them will be true so I would request the users to be smart enough about which decision you will like to believe and which one you should otherwise you will be confused and influenced


I heard they this news is fake, but what is actually the fact or the situation is we really don't know about this yet, do I would request the users to not to believe anything until you don't get to know about this from any valid sources

I am not sure about this news cause I have still get any confirmation from the valid sources but if he is doing this then there must be some logical reason behind this so we better keep patience till we don't able to know anything surely

I am tottaly confused about your post. And I am not sure but this wallet is not belongs satoshi. So can you make sense your post to me.

There is no evidence that Satoshi owns a wallet and there is no confidential base that's why i think this a fake news and not authentic. bitcoin future very good and probable.

This is probably a fake news But I'm not sure or there is no evidence that this wallet is owned by Satoshi. Although it is secret and its foundation is not yet confirmed. And if Satoshi is such a big owner of Bitcoin, then he will never sell it at this stage.

I do not really know  the real story or the news. I really can not think about this. If Satoshi is the real man who is the founder of Bitcoin then satoshi will not do anything like this.

I don't know is it real of fake. i think it will fake. but I don't know if what is the real truth this case is still under investigation. i want to know more about this.

There's nothing too wrong about the replies, it isn't that bad from a noob PoV that just joined the forum... it's just how ridiculous it is that its entire pages of what I suspect may be same person hardcore farming. I mean the first 2 replies are copy pasted lol.

in the future monero will be #2 coin, eventually 1 XMR = 1 BTC

Extremely delusional. Monero may pump a lot in the future, but it will never get anywhere near BTC.

The big problem with trading Monero (and I have been tempted to do so) is that once you are rich and you want to buy a nice house with your gains, there will be a big question mark in your trading history, thanks to Monero's obfuscated blockchain. So if they demand proof of origin of funds, unless you never leave your exchange, you may end up in problems.

Just imagine that you buy Monero in Binance or some other exchange, you put it into your Monero wallet, wait some months, Monero goes x100 and you want to sell for BTC. You send your XMR into Binance again to sell, and within this move is the problem. If they ask you to see this transaction, how do you do it? you can't show them in the blockchain, and believe me they are and will get increasingly anal about things. They will want every detail, and they will look for gaps within your trading history to confiscate your money, and then you are fucked and you no longer can buy your dream house, and maybe even end up with a big fee. So yeah, before you do any of this, at least be sure the jurisdiction in which you do it will not screw you up bigly.

You can prove any transaction you make with viewkey. You seems to miss a bit technical knowledge of Monero.  It also have view key that bitcoin dont. So for taxation purposes you can easily prove all your transactions whenever you want. But only you can prove that no one else can.

For exchanges is totally simple. They care only about blacklisted wallets. So if someone hacks Bitstamp and steal 1000 bitcoins no other exchange will take those bitcoins, since they will all track on which wallets they move.  With monero exchanges dont have this problem. Well the wallets that hacked Monero are moved are ofcourse blacklisted but after next move track is lost. Reason why exchanges love monero is called fungibility.


Great post. Which actually means, no matter how great Monero is now, it could be worth zero $ in the future, for the very reasons you mentioned (or close to zero, you get the point...).

Monero can be definitely worth 0 in the future.  It is an experiment. If you decide to buy some dont spend more than you are comfortable to lose.



Even if you could technically show a transaction and prove that the funds belong to you, the coin with the highest chances of getting banned from most governments thus never being able to buy a proper house and other actual tangible things with your gains is Monero.

With Bitcoin the chances are lower, it's too big, there will always be favorable countries to it, I see switzerland being one. But Monero may be pushed by all major governments into some niche currency nobody uses.
594  Economy / Speculation / Re: When do goldbugs give up? on: September 08, 2018, 04:36:23 PM
Please stop denying gold isn't any less manipulated than Bitcoin

Every market in the world is manipulated by the ESF in order to try and prop up the dollar + bond market + stocks.  The only real disparity here is that bitcoin has obviously been intentionally propped up by the fraudulent exchange Bitfinex, their tethers, and other scams, while silver and gold are suppressed 24 hours a day by entities like the Comex.  Anonymint can lie all he wants, but he knows it's a lie when he tries to pretend shitcoins are not an artificially propped up bubble, and metals are an inverse bubble.  The first step of trading 101 is do not buy an artifically propped up bubble.

Same thing with other shitcoins on the micro-scale.  Goldman Sachs bought most of the Ethereum premine, sent their illiquid asset to Poloniex, then leveraged it higher.  It was a toxic waste, illiquid asset when the price was low.  Now it's a higher price pile of toxic waste.  The same thing has been done with bitcoin using ScamFinex to artificially rig the price upwards.  

In the GATA archives for metals, it was admitted by the govt that they try to introduce volatility into the metals market using the ESF in order to make them look like a less stable store of value so they can pretend the dollar is somehow more stable.  The ESF itself might even be running the bitcoin pump and dumps doing the same thing here.  Create bubbles then catastrophic collapses over and over ad infinity...in everything...then you pretend the dollar is stable.  Meanwhile, they literally hand out a blueprint of when and where the pump and dumps will occur to a select few oligarchs to make sure they can continuously stay in power and never lose a bet.

It depends on what you believe the outcome of the USD will be. Do you think they can keep doing this forever, and keep the USD alive and strong in zombie mode? will people keep accepting USD no matter what thus making it a useful tool to demoralize potential buyers of hard money? (bitcoin or gold)

If yes, then both bitcoin and gold are fucked, because no matter what their properties are, they can keep manipulating the price forever.

If no, then both bitcoin and gold will win, because they are hard money, and hard money always win in the long term. What is being discussed here at least by me is the fact that bitcoin is a lot more convenient than cumbersome gold. You can't basically move anywhere with your gold, for this reason alone, bitcoin wins.
595  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: Lost trading history on: September 08, 2018, 04:09:11 PM
If you can't prove you how reached that figure, then you can't.

At the very least you will have an exchange address that you deposit to, and many exchanges are so shit they never change the deposit address so you can screenshot that. You will also have withdrawals from known exchange addresses.

You're a bit stuck if it comes to handing over trade by trade gains, but you could point to the overall origin of a large amount of BTC.

Much depends on where you live. I think only the Americans are psychotic enough to pursue everything to the end of the Earth. Most other places probably won't raise it unless multiple red flags pop up if you pay capital gains on a zero cost basis.

Many exchanges don't rotate deposit addresses. In fact, I believe Poloniex, at least the last time I used it, still had my old same deposit address after years. I've saved screenshots of these, the big problem here is, im talking about exchanges that no longer exist.

If the exchange no longer exists, and you don't have the trading history, or a screenshot for what's worth it.. (a screenshot could be manipulated anyway... if they get too nitpicky they may ask even for your login details?) how are you supposed to prove it? And anyone that has been around here for a long enough time may have lost trading history in similar ways. Remember that back then exchanges were insanely scammy and disappearing out of nowhere the next day, it was ridiculous, and it was still to new, so you were in uncharted territory, still learning, and maybe you weren't updating your trading history on every new trade you made, so there will be gaps in your trading history..

Honestly the only bitcoins that I feel that I can prove the origin of where I got them from are mostly signature campaign payments and not much else, because if you put your coins in an exchange and then withdraw them, and you don't have information of what happened within the exchange, then it's basically the same as mixing your coins.

The article did not state that the wallet belongs to Nakamoto and it is still under investigation and they do not have a concrete evidence that Nakamoto indeed owns that wallet, we never know but maybe it is under one whale in the past who suddenly have a need to sell his shares it is still under investigation.

who has 500,000 or more Bitcoins ??

This thread will give you some interesting names of potentially very rich people owning 6 figures of BTC:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=321265.0

The thread was closed because apparently it was inaccurate, but still, you should research these names, probably some of these people still got 6 figures.

Personally as far as this case goes, it could be someone that Pirate Roberts trusted. He could have left this person a backup of the bitcoin keys in case he went to prison, or did FEDs recover all of the coins? maybe lost Gox coins? Who knows. If they aren't super early mined coins then saying it's satoshi it's too much of a stretch.
598  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: BlackRock ETF, Antonopoulous and the Bitcoin Bubble on: September 07, 2018, 03:41:18 PM
BlackRock ETF, really? that's fucking huge wether you like it or not. These guys move $trillions every day like it's nothing. The price pump would be too much to ignore.

And as I look at the news, this looks like a rumor, nothing is confirmed. If Coinbase can pull it off and get BlackRock on board it would be a pretty big success for Brian Armstrong whether we like it or not. BlackRock may be too big to ignore by the SEC, and after so many rejected projects, the rejections are going to start becoming increasingly irrelevant for the price, so they cannot use these dumps to short anymore.

At some point they will have an incentive to pump the price and what's better to pump it into jupiter than a BlackRock ETF. Perhaps not this year but next year we'll have some fireworks.

Andreas is right tho, all these phantom derivatives aren't Bitcoin, but then again, what can we do? if they want to play around with things that aren't Bitcoin in order to manipulate the price then so be it. Long term hard money wins, they know this, so they will do whatever they can to accumulate as much as possible.

I've found in FF that when the text bogs down like that it is usually a chart that is causing it. It's either a script or a flash object. Could be a memory leak but those are pretty uncommon these days.

Yeah I thought memory leak at first but I monitored the ram and it doesn't seem to be going nuts. I didn't have anything but the bitcointalk tabs opened, no charts. I even closed my normal Firefox window which I usually have bitcoinwisdom opened.

I have fixed it (for now) by sliding all the way up the security level fadder and everything is sharp again. When I did that I also restarted my computer so im not sure what did it. If anyone has this problem you can try that.

As far as logging off automatically I didn't click the "stay logged in" checkbox and I think in the past Tor would you log you off even you checked that.
600  Other / Meta / Re: Reminder for @theymos - Public-key-registration System on: September 07, 2018, 03:01:35 PM
I don't understand why theymos said there in that quote that keeping IP logs is extremely useful for account recoveries. Most hackers will just use Tor or a VPN to log in, and most people will also use VPN and Tor to browse this site, ...
maybe that's the same reason why theymos won't recover account easily
those people using Tor/VPN are hiding their real IPs, so theymos can't verify the origin of user
if the user logged from the same clear domain (non Tor/VPN) almost all his logtime, probably theymos would easily release the account

Im pretty sure theymos is pro-Tor and probably uses it himself, or a VPN. I mean, the guy is hated by a lot of people, like Roger Ver and others, basically all of /r/btc is after him, they want this site, they want the /r/bitcoin, I think they already tried doxing him, so yeah, it's only sane to use proxies in bitcoinland. The question is why the hell wouldn't you? I mean Tor is free, and again, as other people said, it has nothing to do with doing anything illegal, it's about protecting yourself from attackers, and assuming this forum doesn't have attackers is naive. They are after everything they can get, starting by your account.

The reason theymos and Cyrus take so long to recover accounts I doubt it has anything to do with IP's and more because they simply don't have the time to look at all the ever growing request and for some reason refuse to hire staff to recover people's accounts that delivered the required cryptographic proof. The whole point of Bitcoin and cryptography is to demonstrate proof of ownership via cryptography only.
