Never imagined the WO hat to be a gateway drug for:



I propose collectively wearing above hat with laser eyes to $50k. @xhomerx10 can you do you magic please?

Bitcoin still very sentiment driven, it seems. We should be able to find a leading indicator for this. Possibly some have already.

Fuck the bears! There.. I said it.

Really, another China ban?

People panic sell and tweet deleted after?

Apparently the FUD still works even after so many times.

This shows how pathetic the market still is.

Oh well, Coca-Cola lost billions in market value after Ronaldo switched a bottle of Coca-Cola with water. Undecided



The market will always be pathetic while we're on the exponential part of that S-curve. It'll only be some of us who truly get FOMO and the fearful other side of its coin, the rest will buy and sell like sheep.

Look at difficulty dropping.

this is the opposite of what happened from Jan 2018 to Sept 2018.

the difficulty was up at the end of every month as price was dropping.

This time the difficulty is dropping as price is dropping.

Yeah we could say it is the lack of chips so no new gear.

But this is a new pattern.

Which could mean a new price pattern will evolve in the next two- three months.

How has sha256 alt marketshare changed? If sha256 alts are doing stupid gains, it could be miners want to have some of that for themselves while BTC's price is wandering around in the wilderness.

Well, happy fathers day, I guess.

I got my walking-around money out at 39k so not hurting too much at the moment. I should have got out more so I could buy back in, I suppose.

There will be no taping, pulling or rubbing of neither my Helmuth nor my glockenspiel, thank you.
But thanks for your input.  Grin

Edit, What's doc leaves?

Not sure about your country but in England they are a broad-leaved plant that grows near nettles that contain a chemical that soothes the pain and itching that nettles cause (the 'doc' is short for 'doctor', I believe). Hmm. Just looked and it's "dock" leaves and apparently they don't actually contain anything, it's just the rubbing action that helps. Well shit, there's another piece of my childhood gone Sad

I guess you could make some nettle tea. Brings a new meaning to teabagging.

Edit: Apparently alkali substances can help with the nettle stings.

So It was hot as hell last night and I decided to go outside, naked, to cool of (I live in the countryside). It so happened that I walked in to my neighbors old corral and what I thought was just high grass was also nettles. I stung my legs, butt, and Helmuth and the glockenspiel, I have had a trying night.

Rub yourself with doc leaves.

It might be in the articles which I am too lazy to read, lol.  But if I were doing it i would make the users download a "new client".  But that would probably be the hardest part to pull off...

That's definitely a big red flag though. I know there are ways that keyloggers manage to do it. Things like emulating a keyboard to open a command shell, create a command script to send the payload and then execute it.

I spent way to much time watching talks on that controversy!

It started out doing some things Linux needed for a long time. Then they didn't know when to stop.

Privilege escalation with polkit: How to get root on Linux with a seven-year-old bug

Fuck systemd.

It looks like the installed a wee little internal device with a standard USB connection and soldered that to pins on the board.  It may just be nvram.

It could be writing the seed to that and then sending it home, or even signing a transaction and sending THAT home where they can then broadcast it and take the monies.


Interesting. I guess it's hard to spot a fake when it's not a fake. I wonder what method they use to send the payload home.

One thing that has always puzzled me is the fact that all phishing attacks I've received or seen (mostly emails, but also the one above), contain mistakes (spelling, grammatical, syntactical) in the text they use. I just wonder why this is the case. Can't the scammers find someone who knows how to write, and have him write, or at least proofread, the text they use? It's almost as if the scammers want to include mistakes, in an attempt to morally justify their actions (i.e., "it's so obvious it's a scam, so if you fall for it you deserve it because you're stupid").

I've seen it said that the errors help weed out people who would spot the scam and attract those dumb enough not to be phased by them. That doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense to me. Butt watt doo eye now?

I am also hoping to be selected for this!  First thing I do will be to paint it orange.  But I would LOVE to get this hardware.  I might even remove the hack and just have another ledger.  They are obviously putting serious work into this.

It's original hardware then? I would have thought it was likely just a lookalike with custom cheaper shit. Presumably you have to download their wallet software too.

Speaking of Ledger, I was quite disappointed when I went to use some funds around a couple of months back that I had to upgrade the firmware before it would work right with the software on my phone. I guess I always have the seed words but that kind of fragility reduces security in my book.
16  Economy / Speculation / Re: Wall Observer BTC/USD - Bitcoin price movement tracking & discussion on: June 18, 2021, 03:33:42 AM
This is next level of scamming.

Be more vigilant guysÖ!!!

So apparently scammers are mailing fake hardware wallets and pretending to be from Ledger with a letter signed by CEO.

Details here https://twitter.com/bitcoinmagazine/status/1405572965480153095?s=21

Apparently based on the Ledger leak. I'll be interested to receive one of these. I wonder what criteria they are using to select from the list.

I see your point, and have also wondered about the one sided nature of it.  At the same time I am aware sattelite is used well especially in asymmetric data exchanges where what you download is greater than what you broadcast.  You can broadcast a transaction with a small amount of data, on maybe a cell phone network, but recieve the big data from the "bird".  AND it can allow a connection to the blockchain in remote places.


Absolutely. I actually had "Starband" back when I first moved to the US. It actually had satellite uplink that was low bandwidth and I think the DirecTV one used phone lines for the up-link as you say and now there is Musk's Starweb (in beta but usable). These are good enough solutions and you could certainly build something which could benefit from a "broadcast" aspect of transmitting transactions and blocks but that's not what Blockstream have done with this nor does it seem to be their use case for this. They really seem to be aiming for a read-only model in a way which breaks easily. If I worked hard, I could probably come up with a couple of corner cases where it would be beneficial but it really just doesn't seem to have been thought through beyond the "cool" factor.

Still, not my money so it's not like I'm mad about it or anything.

12 Chartbuddy posts on page 28994, this is just what I feared, pages with nothing but chartbuddy.

I have noticed it too.. but still at the moment maximum streak is 3 in a row... so let see if it goes to 4 or 5 Smiley

Get nine in a row, tenth one's free.

I think Arrie is worried we're going to use up all the bits.

5. Satellite
I am not sure how they plan to monetize this.  But it's just damn cool that you can be in any remote place on most of earth and get the blockchain live.  Cypherpunk af.

The satellite thing is complete nonsense and even if there were nothing else to be concerned about, any serious contemplation of this implementation should cause a few askance glances at Blockstream. It's a one-way communication with no way to retrieve earlier blocks than the one currently being transmitted and if you have a communication error, the chain is broken. It's been running for years (if, indeed, it is still running) and I've not heard of one real world use of it. Meanwhile, the third world has been heavily adopting cell technology. Besides which, we're all supposed to be using second-layer technologies, right?

You think that the rally is over?

Hm


No idea. Just noting that someone brought the smack-down pretty quickly.
