The forum might be cracking down more on illegal digital goods for sale, since a week or two ago there was a thread here in the meta section where a user claimed to receive a PM from theymos telling him that the forum received a DMCA for his thread (which was selling Microsoft keys illegally) and because of that, had to remove it. I suspect the forum would rather not receive more DMCA's like that, so that could be part of the reason.
2  Bitcoin / Wallet software / Re: Bitcoin wallets on: March 19, 2016, 03:28:09 AM
I'd like to see the addition of hardware wallets as well. I have the trezor and have been using it for a while. I'm currently purchasing the others and am most pumped for keepkey. Hardware wallets vary a lot in functionality, security, quality, craftsmanship and price. If you're protecting any amount of BTC I would say get the best wallet available. Peace of mind is priceless IMO
Couldn't have said that better myself. A good hardware wallet is so much easier to use for coin storage than the most secure offline transaction signing computer is. It might be a good idea to store large amounts of bitcoin in secure, offline paper wallets, but a good hardware wallet is a great solution for storing a reasonable chunk of your bitcoins for easy and secure access.
3  Bitcoin / Mining speculation / Re: Mining Solo ~ QUESTION on: March 18, 2016, 09:44:08 PM
According to this calculator, on average (at the current difficulty) you'd generate a block every 41134 days (112.7 years). You're probably better off putting that hashrate on a pool and earning small amounts every month from mining, it looks like you'd be able to make about 0.02 BTC per month (before power) pool mining bitcoin.

Given these were given basically as a "thank you" for early supporters of the project, I sure hope they sell for a steep, steep premium above "normal" trezors.

Tbh, I would auction them off to the highest bidders, really.
That's not a bad idea. It would ensure that they're truly going to people who are interested in owning them (since they'd be willing to pay so much for them) rather than whoever is able to refresh their browser page quick enough to place an order for one of the twenty units. They'd definitely be a great novelty item for a bitcoin fanatic.

Might want to add some photos and a price if you want more interest in this ad.

Also, this thread is in the wrong section. Try moving it to the "Computer Hardware" section for more exposure.
6  Other / Meta / Re: Need to delete my account on: March 18, 2016, 01:29:29 AM
Not that funny this article is, actually.
Yet, I cannot understand how this could be connected with account termination. As far as I understand, it cannot be totally terminated - you're a part of a database, and finding accounts there manually and deleting them can drive one mad.
You're correct. I don't think a Bitcointalk account can every be fully deleted, but if a user decides to delete all their posts, remove all information from their profile, and then change their email and password to something random, that's the closest they'll get to completely removing their account from the site. In fact, some users used to offer a service dedicated to securely "deleting" Bitcointalk accounts.

I confirm, we've been waiting for some deliveries and setting up the bundle now in the eshop, it will go live within these days.
Can you give us any price estimation for those last twenty units? Will they be priced similarly to a normal Trezor, or go for the 3 BTC or so that molecular estimated the early ones sold for? I suspect it'll be the second option, but we can always hope. Tongue
8  Other / Meta / Re: Proposal for changing pay per post signature campaigns to fixed payment ones on: March 18, 2016, 01:22:16 AM
I don't really agree with your idea either. Another way to look at pay-per-post campaigns is that participants aren't required to meet a certain post threshold per week or month. If a user participates in a paid per post campaign with no post requirements, then there's no pressure on them to meet minimum post counts every week or month. On the flipside, if users are forced to make a certain number of posts for their campaign, and they don't usually make that many posts, chances are good they'll start posting crap posts just to get paid for their posts and meet campaign minimum requirements.
9  Economy / Service Discussion / Re: PREEV down? on: March 18, 2016, 01:15:48 AM
Looks down from my end as well. This isn't the first time this week I've been having issues with Preev either. A few days ago I was trying to look at the price of bitcoin in currencies other than USD, and it just wouldn't load for me, regardless of what network I was on (Wi-Fi or cellular).

Another suggestion for watching the bitcoin price would be Bitcoin Wisdom as well - it gives a lot more information than Preev, plus you can see the prices at various different exchanges.

my BTC address 1HamukiBbYq5Fe5mL2ZHCELemr4f7WHu6t

Don't go around doxxing random people with the same name as him. Unless you have any proof of that being the PBMining operator I'd suggest removing that dox to protect the innocent.
11  Economy / Services / Re: 20 BTC bounty for finding Jason Boyko (Pbmining) on: March 15, 2016, 10:01:32 PM
I think he is in Serbia at the moment, sot the case would go to interpol and not a local police. I`ve contacted Saskatoon local police department to see if Jason Boyko is still there, but there is also SweetLou and some another people involved with the scam, so I think reporting to Interpol would be the best way to continue the process at the moment.
This would take some time and maybe not find him so fast and then there is a big possibility that never see my bitcoins again, but he would get probably some heavy charges anyway and stop with scamming.
What makes you think he's in Serbia right now? I think Interpol might be a poor choice to report his crimes to, since I suspect they're focused on much larger targets. SweetLou might be worth looking into though - it's possible he was in on the scam, but it's also very possible that he was dragged into this, and didn't know he was developing a website for a scammer when he was initially developing it.
12  Economy / Lending / Re: Need 0.025 Loan - Account as Collateral - Urgent on: March 13, 2016, 06:57:36 PM
That account pricer is crap. With that post quality, the most you're going to get is 0.01. You're probably selling it off, making it seem like a loan
0.01 BTC for his account might be too generous. Wink It's not even a Member rank account yet (it looks like they sell for < 0.01 BTC as of recently) plus the post quality is extremely poor.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Re: Lost complex password for encrypted wallet - help creating tokenlist or software on: March 13, 2016, 01:43:01 PM
Another option you'd have is to try and get some professional help recovering your wallet. I've heard good things about Wallet Recovery Services, and from reading through their site a bit, it looks like there might be a possibility of cracking your wallet password, since you know what the pattern of the password was like. Obviously since it was a very complex password, there's a slim chance that they'll be able to recover it, but I suspect they'd have more experience with recovering wallets than you would.

If you're not interested in that, then I'd say to give up on trying to brute-force your password. With a password that's 30 characters or more, with uppercase/lowercase/numbers/characters, you won't be cracking it anytime soon. You'd probably have better luck trying to find the original paper with your password on it.

(Registrant City: KIRKLAND,  ENOM, INC.) (Registrant City: KIRKLAND,  ENOM, INC.) (Registrant City: KIRKLAND,  ENOM, INC.)

Is Jason Boyko related to all of these sites?
I think those are probably all just WHOIS-guard addresses, so I don't think you should assume he is running all of those sites solely from the WHOIS address. The more likely story is that all of those sites are using the same domain registrar, or that the domain registrars for all of those domains are using the same WHOIS guard.

If you watch lending for example, there are threads created daily asking for 2-3 bitcoins with 14 posts and nothing for the loaner to hold.
Just getting that aspect to stop would allow serious loan threads to be read. Once someone is over jr. member they will be less likely to ask for a small loan because they have ability to carry a signature.
Would taper off scamming a little. Also more posts to guage someones trust worthiness.

Do not see it as a attempt to create a business wall for new accounts to climb, like say leaving negative trust for not knowing the rules.

Well a great example of a lot of Newbie loan requests for ridiculous amounts of bitcoin and no collateral was when ManyProofs was around giving out loans up the yin-yang. That REALLY clogged up the Lending board. I'm not sure if he was loaning out BTC to alts of himself or if he was really giving out huge amounts of money to Newbie scammers, but eitherway it made it tough to sort through and look for valid loan requests.
17  Other / Meta / Re: Received a strange PM (phishing page) from 'Benito Finito' on: March 12, 2016, 10:47:29 PM
it seems he has been naked/banned :

 - Nuke user: N/A in topic #0 by member #386326
Good to hear that this one scammer has been banned, but it doesn't look like links from the fake Bitcointalk are being blocked yet. I agree with whywefight; this site should be added to the list of links that are automatically removed by the forum when they're posted.
18  Other / Meta / Re: Should we be doing a no tolerance policy on newbies? on: March 12, 2016, 07:59:47 PM
I think it will be a good thing that accounts under the rank of Jr. Member for example can't access the forum sections - Goods - Currency exchange - Lending, and so on. Sounds quite harsh, but it may help.
I don't think limiting them from the Goods section would be a "good" idea. Sure, there are lots of Newbie members who are here to scam (it seems more often than not a Newbie is trying to scam), but there are new members here are well who are genuinely interested in purchasing or selling something. If users use escrow when dealing with Newbie members, they're covered pretty well. Currency Exchange and Lending might be something to think about though, especially the Lending section. I'm not sure I've ever seen a legitimate loan request from a Newbie member (legitimate as in having valid collateral).
19  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: 15btc transaction fee, big mistake on: March 12, 2016, 07:55:00 PM
Is there evidence the TX hit the network before it was in a block?
What exactly do you mean by that? All transactions are broadcast on the network before they're included in a block.

but it doesn't really matter as long as you can sign a message (correctly) when you need to.
Ack, I meant to put March 8th as the date. I must have gotten mixed up with the 3rd month of the year I guess. Let's try this again:
