How come the address shows or have the same first few characters and last few characters
That's easy: vanitygen and a list/database.

The basics apply to any OS: don't keep a lot of funds in hot wallets, don't install weird software, install as few apps as possible, or even better: use a dedicated system for your wallet.

Don't worry guys, I took all the LoyceV hate on myself, it won't apply to you.

Because LoyceV now hates me and threw me a strike, now I have to punish him. I'll meet him at mark 19 666 merit and we'll see who's the fastest there.  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
I've been brewing on revenge too. I'm planning to pull an icopress on you when I get the chance Cheesy

Never trust anyone in crypto. As they say: "opportunity makes the thief". It's very well possible $13,000 was the threshold for this Mod to pull an exit scam.

I was doubt about it
Always follow your guts when it comes to those things! I highly doubt a "Super Mod" has access to the casino's hot wallet anyway. And I don't even think you can hold the casino liable: they have hot wallet limits for a reason, and the reason it so limit their possible losses when a scam or hack occurs.

They don't want me to talk about it on live chat and even muted me

When I wrote it I wasn't in DT
My stance on the Trust system is that everyone should use it, being on DT or not shouldn't matter. If you believe the feedback shouldn't have been left if you'd been on DT, you shouldn't have left it in the first place. And if you do leave inaccurate feedback, you shouldn't have reached DT.
That being said, you can always improve on mistakes you made in the past.

Quote
I thought I would ask those of you who have been in DT for a longer time if you have any criteria or experiences you would like to share in this regard.
I barely remove feedback. I like to believe I'm quite conservative in tagging people, so I only do it when I'm sure (disclaimer: exceptions exist).

8  Other / Off-topic / Re: Would creating our own VPN be better than buying one? on: Today at 09:10:38 AM
The advantages of running your own VPN that I can think of:

- Dedicated IP address for a low cost (which is also less likely to be blacklisted by websites).
To counter this: I consider it an advantage of a VPN to have a shared IP. That way, a website can't know for sure I am the same user when I return.

You have to run a private server, which will cost at least a few dollars per month.
I've used OpenVPN on a $4 per year VPS (with shared IP), it worked fine.

If you suspect your ISP: use a VPN, and run Speedtest. If it's still slow, you can blame your ISP. Otherwise it's something else.

Usually, sync speed is limited by hardware (HDD instead of SSD, not enough RAM, small dbcache or active disk swapping.

Ok Thanks! So create a new wallet in the new node, then simply replace the wallet.dat?
Yes, that is the easiest solution.

You won't need the passphrase, unless you're sending funds.

Thanks Ratimov for the last 16 Merit I needed! It looks even better than what I expected if I'd reach 9999 Merit Cheesy



On January 19, 2022, 06:21 PM (UTC), a historic moment occurred at the forum. The first user in history with a 5-digit merit value appeared - 10 000.
We literally posted this in the same second!



To the first person who's going to Merit me now: I officially hate you already Cheesy
Strike the "Thanks Ratimov", I hate you now Tongue You barely let me enjoy my 10000 Merit for 14 minutes Shocked
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: I keep getting calls telling me there are are few bitcoins blocked in my name. on: January 19, 2022, 06:23:17 PM
How, where, and is it possible to check if I really have any bitcoins blocked in my name? (If yes, then how)
The answer is simple: Bitcoins aren't stored "in any name". All you need to access your Bitcoins is the private key. There's no names, no paperwork and no intermediary involved.

give them 5% so that they can transfer me the bitcoins
The modern version of the Nigerian scam. As a rule of thumb: if you need to pay before you get paid, you're getting scammed.

A few years ago, I was defrauded by some company and they fooled me into investing money with their fake company.
Chances are your number is on a high-value list of targets that have been scammed before. You could consider changing phone numbers to get rid of it.

can I just replace the new wallet.dat with the old wallet.dat?
Yes. But: exit Bitcoin Core before doing this. And backup your (funded) wallet.dat before loading it into a newer version of Bitcoin Core.

The audacity to even suggest that people need a job instead of needing money, and even worse to vote her in power. Central Banks don't serve the interests of normal people.
17  Economy / Economics / Re: euro explosion on: January 19, 2022, 04:13:52 PM
I wouldn't expect a huge crisis related to Euro
Isn't there always a crisis related to the euro?

Currencies like the US dollar, Euro, GBP and Yen will never crash.
1489: Pound was created.
1792: USD was created.
1869: Yen was created.
1999: Euro was created.
2009: Bitcoin was created.

De euro is the only large fiat currency without a long history, and as such, I don't really consider it proven to last. It's barely older than Bitcoin Wink
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: I have a question about Bitcoin cold wallets on: January 19, 2022, 02:47:00 PM
It may work to sign transactions, but everything else requires internet access and communication with Ledger servers.
I guess there's not really a market for it, because it's not very convenient to use, but I'd like to see a hardware wallet that's truely designed to be used offline. It could for instance use a camera (or QR-code on it's screen) to transmit transaction data, and instead of USB use only a power cable. That way, you could have a hardware wallet that's also a cold wallet.
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: I have a question about Bitcoin cold wallets on: January 19, 2022, 12:00:27 PM
Generating a seed is not a problem, you don't need to be online for that - but what about installing a coin app in this case specifically for Bitcoin? As far as I know, when it comes to Ledger, you have to use Ledger Live and its manager to add or remove a coin app from HW, and for that, you have to be online. There is also the occasional firmware update which again includes Ledger Live and the need for the user to be online.
You may be right: I'm not sure if a Ledger hardware wallet comes with a Bitcoin wallet pre-installed. If it needs the Ledger Live software, it may still work if you install that on an offline system.
I wouldn't worry about firmware updates for a device that never sees the internet.

Also, theymos changed the payment algorithm back in May and now I think it's more proportional to how many reports you handle so maybe that's a factor. I know I at least have to handle a lot more reports for the payments to be anywhere near how they used to be before the change so maybe everyone is handling more now to keep up.
Out of curiosity: if I report one post and write: "many shitposts, please check post history", and the Mod deletles spam from his post history, does that earn the Mod something too? Or just in general if a Mod removes a post that hasn't been reported: is that incentivized in any way?
