If the idea is really a valuable one, you get an NDA, a good contract, and you talk to people who you are willing to pay good money to in order to help your idea to come to fruition.

Don't expect anything more than vague promises if you aren't willing to do those things. Needless to say, if you aren't willing to spend a lot of money on whatever your idea is, then it probably is not an amazing one to begin with.

If you want to timestamp documents yourself, without needing to use a third-party service, you can use the OP_RETURN opcode to create an invalid transaction, & put ~40 bytes of arbitrary data into the scriptPubKey of a transaction output. You can either store a (small!) hash in there, some UTF8 encoding, or similar, referencing your document. Then you have a record in the blockchain (although certain nodes will prune it upon seeing the OP_RETURN opcode) of your message, timestamped.

These kind of posts just reek of merit-grabbing opportunities.

We get it, people buy accounts to join sig campaigns. But that's up to them and we don't go telling them they're not for investments.
Unfortunately the way that most older members act on this forum encourages it. There's so, so many threads which are so obviously just made as a merit grab. "List of all X's" (normally something to do with merit), some weird thread stating something that's obvious to everyone already, etc, and bonus points if they can come up with an excuse to update it regularly. These then get flooded with merit...perhaps partially due to the fact that a lot of people have trouble getting rid of all their sMerit right now, so posts that aren't amazing get a lot regardless.

I'm not sure why you would release this now while the project is in it's infancy. You obviously know that this is not a particularly original idea, you're not the first to come up with the idea of a web wallet that supports microtransactions - so why would you announce/release your product now while that is all that it does, rather than waiting until you have something more novel to wow people with and releasing it then?
5  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Forum project in the making on: November 21, 2019, 07:26:06 PM
Why are you guys suggesting to use epochtalk? If it was ready for usage, wouldn't Theymos already be using it for Bitcointalk?
It is pretty much ready for usage; it's probably 95% complete. As far as I'm aware currently the main focus is on bug fixing and adding a couple more niche things that Bitcointalk needs to be able to use epochtalk as its main software. For a smaller forum that's starting off, small bugs and the like probably aren't an issue as there isn't a lot to lose, but you kind of want some relatively polished software before starting the long process of migration from SMF.

You can manage without 2FA if you are using an uncompromised email and both your email password and forum password are securely managed by a 2FA-backed up password manager. I don't think there is any reasonable way for 2FA to be implemented while we are on SMF.
7  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: P2P Provably Fair Casino Project on: November 03, 2019, 01:26:23 PM
Maybe I'm just being a bit thick, but how exactly is this a peer-to-peer casino project when you literally state in your post that it has a client-side and a server-side application to it? This sounds more like open source software that allows casino owners to run a casino server, but it doesn't sound like it's peer-to-peer.
8  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Crowdfunding traditional food on: November 03, 2019, 01:13:38 PM
I have no idea what you're getting at here. You want to create a catering business that sells traditional food for Bitcoin?

I mean, that's not exactly that revolutionary an idea - it's just a food suppliers that accepts Bitcoin as a method of payment. That doesn't really make it a Bitcoin 'project' in my eyes, there are plenty of food suppliers that sell traditional food and could easily hook up their payment systems to BitPay or something similar.
9  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: Looking for Volunteer Writers on: November 02, 2019, 11:40:52 PM
You might want to provide a bit more information about your project as this is Project Development, so you should share some simple details about your plan and roadmap for the website, raising awareness about it, what you would like for it to do differently to other websites in the crypto news space, and so on and so forth.
10  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: did not refund my money and stopped replying to my emails on: November 02, 2019, 10:27:42 PM
[...] written contracts require signatures from both parties and I am not able to see any! Cheesy
This is blatantly false. I have no idea whether you know that or not as it's 50/50 as to whether you do know that, but are just being deceptive, or whether you are simply just dumb.

There are plenty of jurisdictions in which promises made in correspondence or verbal agreement can be considered a written contract with or without a signature. And in the jurisdictions where it's not considered a "written contract", it can still be considered implied, and so you would still receive a red flag on this forum.

Arguing over the nuance of whether or not the contract was 'written' rather than as to whether or not you scammed him shows how much of a low-life you are.

I realized a couple weeks ago that I met the DT1 requirements other than for having a custom list (which I had gotten rid of despite having one before), so conjured one up to the best of my ability.

I'm not sure how long I'll be on DT1 because I'll be negating people off my trust list who I think blatantly abuse the system, and once I start doing that they'll likely negate me too which could make me drop off - but ah well, I think it's more important to make clear my thoughts on people using the trust system for things such as "I disagree with what this person says".
12  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: did not refund my money and stopped replying to my emails on: November 02, 2019, 07:47:15 PM
3) Please show the written contract?

You wrote this, right? Writing this or things to this effect creates something with equivalence to a written contract in many jurisdictions, there have been court cases won over things scrawled on napkins before so an email with an explicit promise like that would definitely be upheld in a court.

You've already shown that you have no regard for the law except for stupid copy pastes that are irrelevant to the context of the situation, though.

Very low quality poster here:;u=934389;sa=showPosts

Almost entirely one- and two-liners that add little to no value to the topics that he posts on. Here's an example of one:

14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Questions regarding security on: November 02, 2019, 07:42:01 PM
If you don't want to trust a third party, just get Bitcoin Core to a computer without any internet connection, generate your keys and use it that way. You can sign a transaction on the computer and push it to blockchain on another one.

I'm really interested in this use case!
Can you share a link to a tutorial?
I'm using a vmwave virtual machine to store my bitcoin core wallet. Dat. But I use it with internet connection. The only improve I got, is to shutdown the machine when I don't use it.
This is a relatively basic example of proper cold storage, in fact I'd probably say that Bitcoin Core on an airgapped computer is the most simple form of cold storage you can get. If you're using a virtual machine that's effectively still a hot wallet as a hacker with access to the host machine can gain access to the virtual machine.

There are many tutorials on how to set up cold storage, but the most simple way is: Set up a PC that has no internet connection, download a Bitcoin wallet to a USB stick, install it on the PC with no internet connection, randomly generate a private key and import it onto the airgapped PC, and then send Bitcoin to that wallet. Your Bitcoin is now in cold storage.

When you want to get Bitcoin off that machine, you generate a transaction on an online computer using the public key of the cold storage wallet's address, transfer the transaction file to the cold storage computer, sign it on that computer using the cold storage's private key, and then finally move it back onto the online computer and broadcast it.

I've gotta say that I really love the poll that the OP has put on this thread:

"Has it been done before on here" - genuinely asking whether or not someone in the history of Bitcointalk has ever made a casino Roll Eyes Judging by the 22k topics and 1.8m posts in the Gambling section, I think I'll have to go with no, no-one has ever done that.
16  Other / Off-topic / Re: Looking for forum posting ? on: November 02, 2019, 07:21:42 PM
Is this service a bumping of ANNs? If so, don't bother. There have been changes implemented by forum admin to prevent newbies and other low rank accounts such as yours from abusing the announcement board.

A message to all start ups, don't waste your money paying for these "bump" services.
Maybe I can say you are in the wrong forum since DT member's don't accept thread bumpers, these service has been used by scammers to look there thread more alive and looks like they have supporters so much better for you to stay away here since your service will not work in this forum since there are DT members who put a red trust for the user who do the type of job.
These posts are most likely spammier than whatever he's's so blatantly obvious that this guy is offering posting on people's own forums. He literally explicitly writes in his post that he will make "your forum" seem active and that he has experience with SEO. What kind of ANN thread shitposting service offers search engine optimization??

Seriously guys?  Roll Eyes  Obviously he's offering to boost your "own" forum not a certain announcement thread within the forum.
Then he should put up an announcement to the forums he thinks need boosting. Does Bitcointalk look like a forum that needs boosting with fake conversations from farmed accounts?
You've failed to read the thread too, you've completely ignored noobfromPH's point and again assumed that he's offering his service to be done on this forum. You have to advertise your services somewhere, instead you're suggesting he cold calls on dead forums.

Really shaking my head here.

I'm glad Yobit wants them so badly
I mean, just look at his insightful and meaningful posts:

THis is true and you should be aware of this , before i dont use any email but this yahoo thing.their, and i now use GMAIL only and dont forget to have its security.
I think only bitcoin can do that not the cryptocurrency itself😊 But I can't deny that crypto nowadays are too popular too already in the entire world now also. but does not mean it can change the world.
These must be expected by many here in the forum, where most of the altcoins will follows bitcoin trend in the market are those token that has a full of potential to bounce the price to the moon.

With such invaluable contributions as those, who wouldn't want to keep him around!?
Oh man, that is painful to read. If Bitcointalk ever gets that bad I will leave without hesitation.

I can't believe they'd willingly give $9000 to a total spammer, I assumed they'd be at least filtering to check for quality rather than just deciding to award it based on raw post count alone...also I still have no idea what their financial goal is as they are pumping so much money into their forum, and I don't see how it will pay off.

Sorry I was out of touch in the forum for last two weeks. I am trying to understand that if this was a call for me? I mean did you mean that the post on your quote from me was bot or something?
I am pretty sure that you are not meaning the OP of course.
Yeah mate it seems fairly obvious to me that the guy who had quoted you was referring to the person in the screenshot in the OP as being a bot, not you yourself.

I'm actually curious to see if someone could make a bot using machine learning to try to game signature campaigns...considering how many low-quality posters get through it would probably actually be quite successful.
19  Bitcoin / Project Development / Re: I know a bit of cryptography, what can I do about it? on: November 02, 2019, 05:37:42 PM
And particularly, I'd like to do it all for money. Is there any project you can think of I can participate in?
That's a very sad thing. Like you don't know jack shit about how cryptos work or even understand the source code for that matter and you expect to get paid? Isn't it ironic how a person who knows a lot more about cryptography created a system for free and you a person who doesn't know anything wants to get paid? Well, things don't work the same way here. Bring skills to the table to get paid.
Wow man, you're horrible. He's not being rude, he's just asking if he can leverage his cryptography knowledge for a job or to earn some money. Rather than treating him like an asshole for daring to say that he wants to try to use his time and skills to make some money, how about give him some constructive feedback or tell him how to improve - although I'd assume you have no real feedback to give, hence you instead just reverted to attacking him so you could still get a post in.

Ridiculous. Just because open-source software exists doesn't mean anyone who works on stuff for profit is a money-hungry "sad" person.

To the OP: There are many startups hiring people with knowledge of blockchain technology specifically. I'd try to leverage your cryptography knowledge to learn more about how a blockchain can be used in different contexts and industries.
