I do not agree with what you say.

If you legalize cannabis anywhere, all you do is give government the right to tax it.
No that is not all it does. It does also legitimizes the pothead, they are no longer regarded as criminals which is actually what this initiative is all about.

Rather than legalize, repeal all the laws against it. This takes government out of it until...

If a pothead hurts anyone, don't punish him for cannabis use. Punish him for the harm that he did. Make the punishment match the crime, plus reimbursement for time and property lost. Soon the potheads will be careful with what they do, or they will be in prison.
Again this is exactly what this initiative would do. It should be treated the same as alcohol.

Of course, with all the guns in Switzerland, the dangerous potheads will most likely be dead. It will clean up society.
I am a Swiss citizen and once owned a military gun (Sturmgewehr). In Switzerland we have civil military. But I am not aware that we have more incidents with guns than any other country.

In Switzerland there is a new federal initiative emerging that aims to legalize cannabis in the country. I am not personally involved but have already donated a significant amount of currencies. For all you guys out there that want to make the world a better place, now you have a chance to do that with your cryptos. Donate to
3  Economy / Currency exchange / After recovering Trezor, Bitfinex U2F-login fails on: December 16, 2017, 10:52:44 PM
After I recovered my Trezor hardware wallet with the same seed as before, I cant access my U2F enabled Bitfinex account any more.
I do not see how to recover from that. Is recovering the password enough or do I have to reach their support site? Recovering the password halts any withdrawals for 5 days.

Bitfinex handles this situation in their support center.

Thx guys. I guess I will wait one or two days.
5  Economy / Exchanges / Re: Bitfinex locked up my withdrawal on: December 09, 2017, 01:23:28 AM
Well I said "maybe".
These are nice balances on that addresses. But how do I know that these are Bitfinex's addresses? If they are, I am somewhat comforted.
6  Economy / Exchanges / Re: Bitfinex locked up my withdrawal on: December 09, 2017, 12:22:10 AM
is it because of the btc fees / slow confirmations?

Do other cryptos withdraw work?

If so, maybe exchange to other crypto then use another exchanger to get the btc

As I said, there is no Cancel button. I cannot convert to other currency.

Just now I see this announcement at Bitfinex when going into the Withdrawing page:
Please be aware that withdrawals are currently backlogged. The current extraordinary demand for deposits and withdrawals exceeds what the wallets and staff can immediately process. Resources are being added to improve delays. In the meantime, withdrawals may take more than 24 hours to complete. Canceling pending withdrawals and resubmitting them will only cause more delays. Thank you for your patience.

This makes me nervous, maybe they do not have the Bitcoins. This could have happen because their Bitcoin liquidity pool got emptied the days before when Bitcoins prizes went parabolic and everyone bought Bitcoin.

No, I don't think so.
I had withdrawn bigger amounts of Bitcoin many times before and I never have had this issue before.
In the Withdrawal Settings I don't see any limits.
8  Economy / Exchanges / Bitfinex locked up my withdrawal on: December 08, 2017, 11:52:11 PM
Two days ago I attempted to withdraw my Bitcoin funds from Bitfinex. Since then, my Bitcoins are completely locked up at Bitfinex.
It says : Withdraw approved December 07, 2017 22:58. It is now queued for processing and will complete soon (subject to spending limits of the account).
And I can NOT cancel it, there is no button.
I already submitted a ticket yesterday but no response.

Anybody else experiencing problems like that?

The thing is, there is great incentive to run scripts that automatically replay all network transactions ...

Yes you are right. I guess the miners have incentive to replay transactions.

10  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Replay protection ; Can it be done like this? on: November 07, 2017, 08:56:48 PM
It will undoubtedly happen as long as the transaction is valid on both chains, so as soon as you broadcast one transaction on one chain it will instantly get relayed on to the other..
Interesting, and why is that?
11  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Replay protection ; Can it be done like this? on: November 07, 2017, 06:02:06 PM
Is it possible to protect against replay protection by the following simple steps:

1. Send your coins on one side of the forked chain into any address that you own.
2. Wait until the transaction is confirmed.
3. If during that time you get replayed, go back to step one. You still have access to all of your coins since you own the private key.
4. If you are not replayed, send the coins on the other chain to a different address.
5. Wait until confirmed... done, your coins are split.

Is that correct?

Does someone have an idea why this tx does not get confirmed?


I do not see what is wrong with it. There is 1$ fee attached to it.

Bingo, this solution is perfect.
Thank you so much.

... yes that was me Smiley
14  Economy / Web Wallets / Re: Which wallet supports's 12-word recovery phrase on: August 03, 2017, 10:48:03 AM
Thanks for helping me. But this solution looks rather like a hack.
Is there no easy way to translate the passphrase into a private key or is there a wallet where I can import that passphrase?
15  Economy / Web Wallets / Which wallet supports's 12-word recovery phrase on: August 02, 2017, 09:35:21 PM
I have made a 12-word backup passphrase that according to gives me full control of my funds. However, I did not find out yet how to convert the passphrase into a private key. I tried sha256[passphrase] but this did not produce addresses holding my funds. Nor did I find any wallet that would let me import the passphrase.

The reason I want to do that is because I want extract the "Bitcoin Cash" from my funds.

Any help appreciated.
Kind Regards

Thank you so much for this valuable hint!
17  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Seeking project-partner for revolutionary bitcoin 2.0 project on: November 27, 2016, 11:36:03 PM
Hi guys

Of course the title might be somewhat immodest but it helped to get your attention anyway.

I would like to start a project in the bitcoin space but have not the resources in terms of time and expertise to do it all alone. So I am looking for one innovative minded ambitious partner who is interested to work on a project that might push bitcoin to the next state.

I am talking about implementing a specific protocol that runs entirely on top of bitcoin. It is about tokens, similar as for example counterparty. But I propose a new approach on how to implement such a protocol. Besides that, I already have several well thought-out applications in mind that will make use of this protocol which are in a way quite revolutionary.

I am looking for a programmer, who has a good understanding of how the basics of bitcoin work and thinks has the resources to work on a project that might become something large if successful. The project-idea exhibits some financial perspectives altough to what extend and when it will materialize is uncertain. It is more about implementing a new idea that may become the foundation of a new movement in the bitcoin space.

If you are interested just write something about you and why you think you might make up a good partner for my ideas.

Of course all this has been very unspecific. Once I gain trust in you we can talk more specific.

18  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: CoinJoin: Bitcoin privacy for the real world on: May 20, 2016, 04:18:13 PM
I have a question:
When I am doing a transaction and I send my signed tx to the network. Could someone else take that transaction and add a additional signed input to the tx. So this would mean that my tx gets coinjoined without my approval, would that be accepted by the network?

19  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / What is the probability of a bitcoin address starting with "11..." ? on: May 14, 2016, 08:11:58 PM
This is not a very important question that some statistics geeks of you probably may answer easily.
I wonder because I am currently writing code that creates a bitcoin address, and this question just occurred to me.

20  Economy / Services / Re: origin of tx_index in API on: May 11, 2016, 07:32:51 AM
Is this index the same in every UTX database on every full node? So can I retrieve the tx_index from and then query with this index on any other index database and get the same transaction?
