^  Funny you mentioned hyc, I was just thinking about him and wondering how the Monero devs became close to him that he eventually became a Monero dev himself.

All I know is hyc was still developing LMDB and I think fluffypony and the guys approached him and requested for him to port LMDB to 32bit so it could be used for Monero..?  Is that right?

But what I really want to know is did hyc make optimizations in LMDB specifically for Monero so that it could get the most performance from the database?

Dude, I got no clue man... I followed AP here. Yolo'd in.

I agree. its been damn near a year and the auction funds are just sitting in a wallet hanging out. Instead of trying to get everyone to agree, maybe give the donators the choice in what happens to them. Easier to get 30 people to agree than the whole forum.

If it was up to me, we would find a worthwhile charity who actually could use the funds for good and give it to them. At least then the funds do some good instead of lining the pockets of those not in need of it. 

either way - make a decision. imagine how much more difficult it gets when btc hits 100k!

BUMP for the community to actually do something with these auction funds

I think that would be a great solution, but just to add it in the list of choices for people to choose if they would want to be that altruistic.

Could you imagine if like Yogg was on his deathbed or something and needed an operation to pay for it all and the only way to save his own life was to steal all this money from everyone and to never look back? Idk, I know he had health issues. The only thing I can think is that nobody could be this heartless to everyone if they didn't desperately need it. If they didn't and they just stole then they're just an asshole but part of me thinks that there is so much more to this story. I just wish Yogg has the balls the send the last message. Whether it be that he screwed everyone or was desperate I just wish we knew. The truth remains to be seen.

Hey kept the private keys while he should have destroyed them, end of story!

Indeed.  There is enough evidence now I feel to say that this was his plan from the beginning.  Between the closing of his company, tracing the stolen funds to an exchange, him not coming to face the music, keeping all the private keys from the beginning... 

This is an example of it being harder to convince someone they've been scammed, then to scam someone.  Yogg was a scammer and he scammed.  He received plenty of help from his "friends" who are now busy thinking of ways to capitalize on the incident to sell more products to the scammed customers.  All I can say is to be careful and don't be the guy who thinks there's more to this story.  You'll be disappointed.  Yogg was a scammer and he scammed.  If you fell for it or considered him a part of your friend group, you were bamboozled and should take a long hard look at that friend group, because if there was any more to this story, it would be that Yogg didn't do this by himself. 

"There is enough evidence now I feel to say that this was his plan from the beginning".  I disagree and would argue just the opposite.  If he wanted to do this from the beginning he would have done things a lot differently.  He also would have had a much better system set up for sweeping funds.  He was doing this slowly over the course of hours, and as far as we know just for the halving sets.  He's a Mr Robot type, he would have had a much better system lined up to be able to easily sweep keys quickly, and not just one set of cards, but all of his cards.  As far as we know so far, only the halving sets have been swept.  Sure he didn't fund a lot of other cards, but that's different. 

Either way, he's a scammer and it all sickens me.  The betrayal I feel right now is one I don't think I've ever felt.   

Ooof.  randomly came across this post of mine which needs correction. OGNasty a page or two ago is right. I’ve told a few people but at this point I know there’s no hope for Yogg making any good so.. I messaged him via the forum and just told him how shocked I was. I was struggling to come to terms with the the potential truth which is in fact he’s just a scamming pos.  I told him to reach out so we could chat. Few hours later and I see a call to my phone from France.  Long story short I ruled out serious mental health issue/breakdown.  He admitted to me that he had built in a “kill switch “ (keep the keys) form day fucking one. I tried several times to get him to send at least what he had made, funded or that people he screwed over could have something. He had absolutely no interest in that. None. Not to mention what hurt most was that he had rot only ruined a friendship but I never got as much as a single sorry. Then a few days later he sweeps more cards (I messaged him on discord to a now defunct account, and begged him not to do it. Told me he was hungry and needed food) which meant he lied to me on the phone about not having any more keys left.  He also told me he hated cryptocurrency stuff, coding etc and has all along.  So yeah, he played us alll, for years. I’m not quite sure even why he called me at all.
Anyways..been meaning to share this. Also hoping this drives the “community” to stop dickiing around and come up w/a plan on how to disperse the funds from the charity auction. Personally I’d be pissed off if I was say Kilalara (who’s not said a peep about this) who was not affected by this at all, but out the kindness of his heart donated a valuable collectible… a good while ago now. It was meant to help those whom really needed it, and it’s yet to happen. Suing him is an option that is not even remotely wise. I don’t want anything back to be clear, but if everyone can’t come up with a consensus on what to do ..btc should be sent back to all the donators.  At this point is gotten utterly ridiculous.  Set a date, no consensus, donators refund. 

Me coming from a hard(er) neighborhood than most, I’m gonna say it was drugs that got him down the rabbit hole he couldn’t find himself out of.

No, but this thread is  Cheesy

Thanks for keeping The Monero Moon going!

I second that, it's a good read and always welcome, even for those who (like me) lurk more than comment.

I bought XMR nearly a decade ago when it was first listed on Poloniex and I still have a decent stash - and I use it in real life.  Monero still has genuine use cases and is - and always has been - a great coin. Pricewise, Litecoin looks positively anaemic compared to Monero - XMR is in good health.

I ‘member when hyc and gingeropolous helped me rig a miner to go 7 H/s. 😂

I like the idea of option C, but you're right, going after him in order to hold him accountable for the funds he stole in trying to sue him, isn't going to go anywhere.  I've had renters take off without paying the final months rent and stuff like that..and spoken with lawyers about how to go after them , and they've all simply told me it would unfortunately be a waste of money since I knew they likely didn't have any. 

I do think going after him legally, as in being arrested/spending time in jail, and potentially being prosecuted by whatever governing body who would do such a thing where he lives in France would be a good thing.  You wouldn't have to spend any money of course for this option too. Trying to get governments to act of course is the potential hold up here (we all know how true this can be with the Titan mess going on).

I suppose I'm going with options B as well.   

Yeah, I mean idk who would want to take on the responsibility of keeping track of a lawyer and a (probably) never ending legal battle...  I honestly have no say in this matter, as I've only lost premiums on a few cards I had, and had the ability to sweep the ones that were loaded before he got to them.
17  Economy / Collectibles / Re: My Cold Keys Just Got Swiped! All Halving Sets!! on: April 02, 2023, 06:50:18 PM
I've just recently signed in and... wow. I'm just sad, angry and self conscious all at the same time. There is no other way to describe it for me.  I have updated my trusted list removing Yogg.


On another, more personal note ... some of you on here know that I have had my own personal battles with forms of mental illness, addiction issues, etc. I had to step away from this alt persona of myself, because it was obviously not healthy for me. Your mental and physical well being means much much more than your stacked sats. I have come to learn that the hard way... Lots of times.

I'm sad that Yogg got so far down the path of no return.  I'm sure my ck's have been swiped, and yeah, it pisses me off ... But I'm sure in some form or capacity, Yogg has sentenced himself to a lifetime of guilt and bad reputation forever in the world he held so dear to begin with (or so it seemed), and even though he has my (and everyone else's) sats at his disposal, it will never be enough.

It's why I had Dan at Polymerbit take over the key generation process of my Spesmonerujo notes.  They had (and have) the capacity to do that kind of thing in a very reliable and professional manner.  It's a lot of responsibility making these new forms of art! I think that's what makes it exciting, and I think that's why you are here right now reading this message.

I'll be around a little more often now and days probably, only because I think I've found myself to be in a better mind space now, and that I'm fine with myself logging in here ... I'm treating my ability to be able to login to this account that has garnered some trust I've earned for myself over the years as a privilege. It can easily be taken away from me or anyone else on here. You can fuck around and find out, but believe me ... allowing yourself to go down that road towards mental insanity, or crippling addiction is just not worth it.

I've only just recently gotten professional help, and I think finally addressing these problems head-on makes you grow as an adult. I find myself feeling very fortunate to have that chance now.
