1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: SuperSwap - Launched on testnet (Rinkeby) on: October 04, 2020, 08:26:55 PM

There are so many scams using defi already, how do we know this isn't one of it?
If we demand to learn about the people behind the project will it be provided?

Your github doesn't have anything there yet. Now that investors are now aware of the ADMIN KEY of the Defi projects that makes its protocol untrusted if the team still has it, the investors may just have to wait until Admin key issue of a project is clear.

The project is launched on testnet only right now, no code provided yet.

The code will be published as soon as we switch to mainnet.

What do you mean about ADMIN KEY ? There is no such thing on this project ... all transactions made by admins will be on pending state up to 48 hours ... you have all necessary time to swap your tokens to another one.
2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / SuperSwap - Launched on testnet (Rinkeby) on: October 04, 2020, 07:57:06 PM
Introducing SuperSwap and SuperToken



The daily volume of Uniswap has surpassed the daily volume of centralized exchanges ! Recent DeFi projects related to yield farming like SushiSwap, and many other on the same field, have played a major role in this. However, many of them died overnight because of the lack of transparency, vulnerability of the contract or the short-sighted token economy. None of them fulfilled what people really wanted and only few participants actually earned a profit.

This technical SuperSwap paper explains some of the design decisions behind the SuperSwap core contracts. It covers the contracts’ features — including SuperSwap’s SUPERTOKEN, total supply, reward distribution and more.

Don’t wanna miss the DeFi season? Here’s your SUPER opportunity!

We are SUPER excited to bring you what you guys really want — The SUPER SWAP !

What makes SuperSwap unique?

SuperSwap is completely distinguishable from the existing DEX’s on the market. While adopting the brilliant model of automatic market maker (AMM) and staking mining mechanism from Sushiswap , SuperSwap is a more simplified, fair and secure version of SUSHI that will launch in multiple phases to ensure sustainability and profitability.

Simplicity — SuperSwap provides the simplest interface for a staking mining model. Participants can easily get started with mining and earning on the SuperSwap platform with just a few clicks. No need to read long and boring whitepapers! In the first phase, you will simply have to deposit assets on SuperSwap and will receive SUPERTOKENs as rewards. And you are all set!

Fairness — A Fair Launch is the most important thing for all blockchain projects, not only DeFi. SuperSwap guarantees 100% transparency for our participants and audience. We would like to offer this project to benefit the community in the long term, not just the founders. 0 Pre-Mine and No Drama!

Security — Think about the nights you can hardly sleep tight after you provide liquidity for the DeFi platforms. Will someone steal my assets? Did the developer team leave a backdoor? Will the project collapse when I wake up? You will no longer be bothered by security concerns after using SuperSwap. All the code of SuperSwap are Ethereum smart contract based, open to everyone and governed by the vote of the community. Community vote will take place in future asset listing, development, token economy and etc. So, from now one, sleep tight and start to earn profit while you are dreaming.

All you need to know before mining SuperTokens

Special days ?

A special bonus is set for a special days like: New Year, Chrismas Day, and others… you can find a full list from here:

https://en.unesco.org/commemorations/international-days

And you know what ? The community can decide to set a new special day depends on the event (China New Year, Black Friday etc.).

Charity Days ?

What if a small part of your rewards will be reserved for a charity organization voted by the community on a specific day and with the defined percentage (10% by default — editable) ? It’s SUPER COOL no ? This can be done easily with SuperSwap ! Our smart contracts has a feature to add new Special/Charity days with the help of the community votes and all this with a TimeLocked transaction, and everyone can monitor it before the execution 48 hours before ! So, you have all the necessary time to switch back to your favorite asset if you disagree with the decision (transaction) !

Can’t wait to start? Take a few more minutes to learn the details! Here are all the important phases:

Phase 1:

Multiplier: x10, Duration: ~5 Days, Projected Supply: ~1,675,000

Phase 2:

Multiplier: x5, Duration: ~10 Days, Projected Supply: ~337,500

Phase 3:

Multiplier: x2, Duration: ~15 Days, Projected Supply: ~337,500

Phase 4:

Multiplier: x1, Duration: ~30 Days, Projected Supply: ~10,000,000

Phase 5:

Multiplier: x1, Duration: ~10 Months, Projected Supply: ~3,685,000

Estimated total volume: 16,035,000 SUPR

Unlike SUSHI Token that has unlimited total volume, we set Supertoken a limited total volume to avoid dilution and maintain project sustainability.

In the 5th phase, only during the special/charity days that SuperTokens are mints, in normal days there is ZERO SuperTokens.

The projected supplies are based only on default special days included with the contract (check the full list above) for phase 5, and special bonus not calculated for the other phases, it was only an estimation … there will be a difference for sure when phase 5 ends (do not forget that the community can vote for additional special or charity days).

Important note: Special Days can match the first phases, a special bonus will be applied aswell for the multiplier itself (Let’s give an example: during the phase 2, we got a special day that comes just in ! Chrismas Day ! and during the phase 2 the multiplier bonus is X5, Special Day Bonus is set to x2 by default … as result, during the christmas day, the multiplier will be: x10).

SuperToken Burning

SuperSwap follows the transaction fee distribution of SushiSwap, namely 0.25% goes directly to the active liquidity providers, while the remaining 0.05% gets converted back to SUPR (obviously through SuperSwap). 30% of the remaining 0.05 % will be burned and the rest 70 % will be distributed to all SUPR holders.

Project Funds

Developer funds are set to exactly 2% — Why “exactly” ? if you check other projects in the same category, you will notice they didn’t set a fixed and rounded percentage.

In other SushiSwap forks (SushiSwap included), you will notice that developers funds are mints independently from the rewards per block, which makes: 100 SUSHI + 10% (10 SUSHI) = 110 SUSHI per block that are mints in reality … but in our case, we takes charity fees and developers funds directly from the rewards.

Many other similar improvements already done on our project, you can use DiffChecker to compare our contracts with those of SushiSwap.

We are not just another fork ! WE ARE A SUPER FORK !!!

What is next ?

We aim to invest more of our time on this project and bring something particulary new to the crypto space ! Building a unique decentralized exchange mobile oriented is on our TodoList with many other side projects, so save your SuperTokens… you got a powerful tokens there !

We can’t talk more about it, but you will like it for sure !

3  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: blockchain.com and RPC on: September 04, 2019, 06:57:46 PM
Humm, so bitcoin.conf is like one autoexec.bat, in this case i should install bitcoind and then i just need to use bitcoin-cli and thats all?
Yes.

Using BITCOIND RPC require interacting with the Blockchain, and therefor downloading entire Blockchain is required before starting accepting Bitcoin Payments.

Or I am wrong ?

And the goal of OP from what I read, is to use RPC API in order to interact with the blockchain without the need to download it completely.

In this case, he is looking for a free API to handle that for him, so blockchain.com is good for that, you can also check coinpayments to accept more than 60+ cryptocurrencies.

6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Recent Bitcoin Volatility due to Binance Hack ? Market Manipulation on: May 12, 2019, 03:27:50 PM
If we talk about logic, the hacker still not dumping yet,right ?
For me, the current market situation is not affect with the hacker incident but pure of positive trading of the traders around the world.

If you want the real answer, time will answer it for you ( waiting )

Yes right now logically the hacker is out of any price manipulation.

But he is the trigger of all this, he is the one who stirred the whole sea... and purhapse launched a bull run (Who Knows).

Binance have a positif impact on the bitcoin price ... first time it happens that when a crypto trading platform hacked the price increase (Knowing that we are tlaking about 40$ millions ... market price changed for lower than this with others hacks before).

7000 BTC = 48 620 000$ at the time of writing (1 BTC = 6 942$).
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Recent Bitcoin Volatility due to Binance Hack ? Market Manipulation on: May 12, 2019, 01:04:44 PM
in case you missed it, Binance is an altcoin exchange not a bitcoin exchange. so your topic doesn't even make sense! you talk about hacker gaining access to people API (which is not correct by the way) and then manipulating the market but then talk about bitcoin price moving up $500! not to mention that a $500 rise or more precisely a 7% rise is not a big deal at all. it is one of the most common percentage rises that bitcoin has specially when it is coming out of a long downtrend and prior manipulation keeping the price down.

Empty your anger on something else I'm not your punch bag Wink

And do not play the little genius like you're expert in everything related to the universe, take your breath and take it easy ... i didn't forced you to comment here, take a little air and do a little sport to relieve you ...

Meanwhile, to answer your questions:
- Do a little reading from here:
https://binance.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360028031711-Binance-Security-Breach-Update
Quote
We have discovered a large scale security breach today, May 7, 2019 at 17:15:24 (UTC). Hackers were able to obtain a large number of user API keys, 2FA codes, and potentially other info. The hackers used a variety of techniques, including phishing, viruses and other attacks. We are still concluding all possible methods used. There may also be additional affected accounts that have not been identified yet.

And Security Update: API Key Reset from here: https://binance.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360027851252-Security-Update-API-Key-Reset

They didn't mentioned the number of users affected, but 7000 BTC mean a lot, and with that amount of users affected it's easy to make a market manipulation ... and notice that it's possible that the hacker withdrawen to another bitcoin address an incridible amount aswell.

Binance is an altcoin exchange not a bitcoin exchange
The way you wrote it, it seems that you just learned it! I followed the developement of Binance from the first ICO in 2017 so, i think i knew it just like you !!

Quote
but then talk about bitcoin price moving up $500!
It is normal for the price to go up by $500 or more (Market Change In Dollars, thank's for the percent number).

Quote
it is one of the most common percentage rises that bitcoin has specially when it is coming out of a long downtrend and prior manipulation keeping the price down.

Anyway thank's for your opinion.

No way this is possible, How can Binance control the price of Bitcoin? Where did this come from? Whats price of Bitcoin to do with Hackers who hacked Binance? Where do you see the manipulation?

It is normal for the price to go up by $500 or more, if it can go down by the same amount in a day or couple of days, this is natural and that is why it is called Bull run.

Stop thinking negative and remember this - if the price goes down it will also go up and vice versa.

Cheers  Grin

I am not negative, just looking to understand this situation before making any move Wink

Hi,

Since most of the cryptocurrency traders and investors are in Binance, and the price can mostly be followed from there due to the larg coin market cap traded,

And with recent hack, it seem that the hacker gained access to many users accounts using API of users affected by the breach, don't you think that the market manipulation come from there ?

Because the price change by up to 500$ in a period of one day or less.

Waiting your opinion.

That's a pretty terrible phishing attempt are we sure it's an actual phishing attempt or some shitty type of advertisement going on that we aren't expecting?

It's a phishing attack, the exact same copy of http://myetherwallet.com/

With many suspected redirections etc.

Be aware that fake MyEtherWallet is in first result of Google !!!

Someone used Google Ads to create a fake Announce showing in first result when someone make a search about: MyEtherWallet !!!

Spread this message to prevent from this phishing attack ... it's this kind of attack that make others give up from using cryptocurrencies.

   Thanks for the information about that. Still there are people that instead of working by their on to earn money,they love to steal from their fellow,they don't even care that other people striving just to earn for their needs.

That's why eltoo was proposed. It will be an alternative to the current penalty system. A softfork is needed. Also, it's not possible to spend all funds that are locked up in the channel - there is such a thing as reserve which is a minimum balance that channel must maintain. For example, one of my channels has 0.0049 BTC capacity; the reserve is 0.000049 BTC.

Thank you for your time reading the article ! Yes it cover many cases with offering a solutions to remedy the problems.

Eltoo solve the problem by continuously updating payment channel balances off-chain.

Soft fork is required since “SIGHASH_NOINPUT” flag for signature must be introduced to Bitcoin Protocol to make it working.

I suggest you to edit your post and add this basic video explaination about how LN works:

14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: How useful is Backup against Ransomware on: August 27, 2018, 12:59:13 AM
Paper wallet i think is the most secured solution.

External hard drive, USB,  or any same alternative can be hacked today or tomorrow ...

If you want keep your wallet on your OS, there no 100% secured OS and all can be affected by ransomware attack ... even if your OS is 100% secure (Which is impossible), programs you install on it like: Adobe products, Office, and any needed softwares for your work are not safe !!! Each time new hacker discover new bug and an army of Cryptocurrencies hunters begin to exploit it actively  ...
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Legal ransomware ? on: August 25, 2018, 08:49:27 PM
I think it's one stupid idea.
Basically you crypt your files and the only way to get it the decrypted is by sending a sum to an address from which those guys take a fee?
Correct me if I'm wrong but from their tiny instructions, this is all I could figure.

Besides, it's not ransomware, it's more like masochistware to me.
What if you need those files urgently and you have no BTC left?  Grin Grin

There are hundreds of ways to secure your files by encryption for free, why would you pay for this?



Of course it's not for that use !

The goal is to encrypt your files (as many as you want) and then sell it for others.

This prevent centralization in some ways and file deletion from online file hosting / or some plateform where you sell digital files.

Because of "ransom ware" this is going to be a hard sell. However there are use cases where it makes sense. I could, for example, have an online store that sells files. Rather than provide protection for the files I could sell the keys to decrypt them. So you would download say a cookbook and when you pay via bitcoin it unlocks the file for use. 

I think it's their first goal and logically the only one ...

It was my first tought when i created this thread "LEGAL RANSOMWARE"

Personally I tested it and given the waited result.

Hope this will not be used for illegal activities.
16  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Basics of the Lightning Network - explanation and wallets on: August 25, 2018, 06:31:28 PM
So let start with MIDDLE MAN:
-SNIP
So Bob here is the middle man, he can affect time of transaction and especially if he go offline.

The time is not a real problem since every transaction has its own timeout. It all happens nearly instantly. I have sent about 100 LN payments and the longest one took 1 minute. Bob can't steal funds because of HTLCs

LN is a network of several centralized hubs ... and you have to choose a performent and all time online to prevent delaying transaction etc ... So here a contract of trust ...

You can still open a direct channel to someone who you are going to transact with very often. Here you can see the largest nodes. Only one node has 1/4 of the total Lightning Network capacity. Keep in mind that principal is not the most important factor; the number of connections and channel balancing are much more important. The need of being online is definitely a huge disadvantage for some people, can't argue with that.

Colluding miner attacks - miners have power to decide which transactions they want to include in the block so they can refuse certain transactions selected by an attacker. This attack is very unlikely to happen due to high cost and complexity (all miners would have to cooperate).

You have to trust miners.

If ALL miners decided to cooperate with a single person then you would have to be more concerned about 51% attack. It won't happen since it would scare future investors and users. Miners would lose money long-term.

It took me some time to format this text on my phone. I am going to read what you have linked once I get home.

Instructive return, thank you.

Waiting your feedback about the link of my previous answer.
17  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Basics of the Lightning Network - explanation and wallets on: August 25, 2018, 12:32:47 PM
I am not the negative guy of the gang, it's great to offer solutions to improve bitcoin or blockchain technology ... but security first (Especially when people's money at stake).

You seem to be the 'uneducated' guy of the gang. At least regarding the LN.
You have a lot of misconceptions regarding the LN.



Before going furthur, stay educated and do not shoot garbage there face to someone you don't know.

So let start with MIDDLE MAN:

Quote
1. Alice opens a payment channel to Bob, and Bob opens a payment channel to Charlie.
2. Alice wants to buy something from Charlie for 1000 satoshis.
3. Charlie generates a random number and generates its SHA256 hash. Charlie gives that hash to Alice.
4. Alice uses her payment channel to Bob to pay him 1,000 satoshis, but she adds the hash Charlie gave her to the payment along with an extra condition: in order for Bob to claim the payment, he has to provide the data which was used to produce that hash.
5. Bob uses his payment channel to Charlie to pay Charlie 1,000 satoshis, and Bob adds a copy of the same condition that Alice put on the payment she gave Bob.
6. Charlie has the original data that was used to produce the hash (called a pre-image), so Charlie can use it to finalize his payment and fully receive the payment from Bob. By doing so, Charlie necessarily makes the pre-image available to Bob.
7. Bob uses the pre-image to finalize his payment from Alice

So Bob here is the middle man, he can affect time of transaction and especially if he go offline.

LN is a network of several centralized hubs ... and you have to choose a performent and all time online to prevent delaying transaction etc ... So here a contract of trust ...

I invite you to read more here for disadvantages of LN in the current state and what make it centralized:
https://medium.com/crypto-punks/lightning-network-ux-centralization-b517037b92ec

Colluding miner attacks - miners have power to decide which transactions they want to include in the block so they can refuse certain transactions selected by an attacker. This attack is very unlikely to happen due to high cost and complexity (all miners would have to cooperate).

You have to trust miners.

And please read more about "what make a technology decentralized" before posting anything else ... and also to prevent spamming this thread since the first goal is to give some knowledge about LN and not to debate it (I given my feedback like you did yourself, there many other threads about this.).
18  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Basics of the Lightning Network - explanation and wallets on: August 25, 2018, 01:35:55 AM
Thank you for this nice post !

Unfortunately this confirm that LN = centralization ! It's against Bitcoin's primary objective and personally i can't support this technology (In the current state and especially if nothing will be made to improve the idea more in decentralized way).

2 importants depreciated factors join the game: Middle man and Trust.

Of course there adventages using it like enjoying a micro transaction fees, save Blockchain transactions ... but what about security (Keeping things decentralized) ?

I am not the negative guy of the gang, it's great to offer solutions to improve bitcoin or blockchain technology ... but security first (Especially when people's money at stake).

Hi,

Anyone else learn about CZIP.ORG ?

It's described as crypto archiver and offer users to archive and crypt their files/folders, and then decrypt using Cryptocurrency Payments !

Is it innovative idea for you ? Bad or Good thing for crypto community ?

thank you all for help
but what if we just add 3 coin as example "etn,xvg,xrp"
and when any user make a deposit , the system automatically convert this coins to btc market price and keep this amount in every user wallet.
until make purchase order.
i think i can do it manually with chat agent, but it will be huge load.
any one can create any system like that, i will be happy to pay for his time

Coinpayments.net already do that, you can accept XRP,ETH and all other altcoins and configure to receive automatically BTC or other coin.

You can set FROM and TO coin in your request.

But if you want use your own system, you have to get the rate of each coin (ETH,XVG,XRP, BTC), using any online API (CoinMarketCap for example).

And then:
Take example of ETH:
https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/ethereum/
https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/bitcoin/

Quote
1 ETH = 424,34$
1 BTC = 7 685,18$

Let's say you received 3ETH and you want calculate BTC:
Quote
BTC = (3 x ETH rate USD / BTC rate USD);
BTC = (3 x 424,34 / 7685,18) BTC;
BTC ~= 0.16564609 BTC

Here is API documentation of CoinMarketCap:
