301  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / SHA-256 is designed by the NSA - do they have a backdoor? on: September 09, 2013, 08:54:33 PM
"SHA-2 is a set of cryptographic hash functions (SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512) designed by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) ..."
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SHA-2)

Every day we hear new news that the NSA is able to spy on us - and hack or bypass SSL, SSH, PGP, etc. Sometimes because they use backdoors that they have installed themselves. "Planted" weaknesses into systems.

What's the probability that the NSA also designed some "flaws" into the SHA-2 algorithm?
302  Economy / Trading Discussion / Bitcoin useless - or PayPal useless? on: September 09, 2013, 12:28:02 PM
The following is from an ASIC (pre order) vendor. There postings like this all over the place:




Because of recent (and not so recent) events people become more and more reluctant using BTC for those kinds of purchases - and advise using PayPal.

I always thought PayPal is one of our archenemies, yet it seems the community itself advises to prefer PayPal over BTC.

Nasser, not sure what you're trying to achieve here. My best guess is that you want me to photoshop you a clown nose Wink

Either you are totally naive, totally retarded - or a total crook like the rest of your posse.


I must add two small notes:

1) The true number of employees involved in the process are at least several thousand. You must include all the employees that are involved in FedEx for example ...


The true number is actually millions. Because all those FedEx workers have to eat. Therefore McDonalds, KFC & Wendy's personal is needed. And they all have to get dressed. So lots of people at Footlocker and Wal-Mart are needed as well. Plus shitloads of poor Chinese workers. etc. ....

You realize how complex your task of designing an ASIC was? And what a genius you and your colleagues are?

I really get the feeling I'm being screwed over by you and BFL.

It's a miracle that the BFL posse still doesn't have a scammer tag.
I guess too much Ad money blown up Theymos' ass ...

No, I assure you, 600 GH/s will always be 600 GH/s.  That's kind of the definition of it...

Like 1$ is always 1$. That's kind of the definition of it...

Except ... there's a thing called inflation Wink

What's the rate of inflation (aka difficulty) for your devices per month? Was it 60%? 70%?

Dude, your customers are truly fucked. In "two weeks"(tm) of course.
310  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: who is this unknown "20% of the network?? on: August 26, 2013, 10:22:33 AM
This kind of distribution cant be healthy for the network for any period of time.
If that rig went down for any period of time transactions would be insanely slow for a while, but eventually the network would catch up and carry on.

Anyone have any guesses as to who this unknown is? I have a hunch that its BFL.

a) "Unknown" is rapidly growing (almost 25% at the moment).
b) https://ghash.io/ is rapidly growing.

1 + 1 = ?  Wink

Does anyone have any great ideas?

You could start by honoring the voice of this community: 1011 people voted so far - and 786 (77.7%) said Give BFL a scammer tag.

What's more important for you? Money (from Ads) - or your integrity?

The real problem here is, as has already been at least partially mentioned:

1. The lack of transparency in the process.
2. The lack of communication.
3. The lies and false promises made by BFL Support Staff.
4. Delay after delay.
5. The just plain ludicrous decisions.  Perhaps transparency would clear these up.
6. The fact that most decisions made by BFL seem completely arbitrary, and nothing... NOTHING pisses off customers more than arbitrary decision making.  When your actions are not predictable in a given situation, you are wrong.  Period.

So while this post is nice and all, I'm not sure what you're hoping to accomplish other than to distract from the real issues surrounding BFL.  My situation, that has been on going since October 2012, is still unresolved.  I am not the only one in this situation and there are plenty of others in similar situations. 

...
Maybe this is the wrong thread to bring any of this up, but I don't want people to be distracted by this kind of thread from the real issue of BFL being unable to meet their obligations to even moderate sized customers, especially when you are trying to gain new customers who will end up completely screwed when the BFL house of cards comes crashing down.

Sound familiar? Well, it is  Grin

1. The lack of transparency in the process.

3. The lies and false promises made by MTGox Support Staff with regards to AML/KYC.

6. The fact that most decisions made by MTGox seem completely arbitrary, and nothing... NOTHING pisses off customers more than arbitrary decision making.  When your actions are not predictable in a given situation, you are wrong.  Period.

So while this post is nice and all, I'm not sure what you're hoping to accomplish other than to distract from the real issues surrounding MTGox.  My situation, that has been on going since April, is still unresolved.  I am not the only one in this situation and there are plenty of others in similar situations.

Nice to see that Josh Zerlan / Inaba has the same problems with MtGox that the Bitcoin community has with him and BFL.

Is it a Bitcoin issue that it attracts so many felons and scumbags? Or is BFL only one black sheep?

I more and more come to the conclusion that this unregulated Bitcoin Wild West Cowboy territory will finally eat itself.
315  Local / Mining (Deutsch) / Re: Neues Produkt: Butterfly Labs 28nm Technology Bitcoin Mining Card - 600 GH/s on: August 24, 2013, 12:42:35 PM
Wäre es nicht denkbar das dieses Projekt schon viel älter ist als der Vorgänger, also das aktuelle Projekt nur zur Finanzierung des zukünftigen erschaffen wurde?
Nein, es ist genau anders herum.

Das neue Projekt bzw. dessen Pre-Orders werden zur (Rest-)Finanzierung des aktuellen Projekts benötigt.  Wink

Sehe ich genau so.

BFL hat die letzten Monate sicherlich viel Geld verbrannt. Mit Re-Designs (ASIC, Gehäuse, Board), mit Re-Runs (Chips), mit Warterei (Lohnkosten).

Würde mich nicht wundern, wenn denen das (Pre-Order) Geld ausging und die jetzt dringend neues brauchen um den Laden am Laufen zu halten.

Die fürstlichen Gehälter von Sonny & Josh wollen schließlich weiterhin gezahlt werden  Wink

... This is what one should expect from a company that is headed by a convicted criminal. I only found this out after I ordered.

And this is exactly why BFL should get a scammer tag: To make new members of this community think twice before they give money to this company.

By the way: This is what Inaba / Josh Zerlan (COO of BFL) thinks about us:
... Everyone here is monumental assholes, no matter how accommodating one tries to be.  ...

It's a Ponzi scheme.

" In reality, Ponzi was paying early investors using the investments of later investors. This type of scheme is now known as a "Ponzi scheme".


Maybe later generations will call it the "Inaba scheme"  Wink
318  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: Codinginmysleep= BFL SHILL 2 the MAX - on: August 24, 2013, 12:14:00 PM
I think his first video showing the unboxing of the Jalapeno back in April basically caught my eye and put my thoughts at ease about BFL.

Dog and pony show. Was very obvious.

David Perry (Coding In My Sleep) sold his soul for one measly Jalapeno.

You, sir, are a liar (just like the OP)!  Congrats... but we already knew that.

"liar", "retard" and "idiot" - would Inaba be able to build one single sentence without one of those three words?  Grin
