Guys...

Earlier today I was walking on the street when I saw the innards of a USB stick on the pavement. It had been lying there for a while, had been stepped on by passers-by several times, but looked like it could be readable. I saw it, walked past it, and kept walking away...

Until it hit me: what if this little thing lying on the ground contains the private key to a massive BTC wallet? I thought, naaah, no way... But I couldn't escape the thought. I went back and picked it up!!! Tried to read it just now, but no dice. It was as DEAD as a cockr0ach smashed by a 400oz gold bar!

Has this ever happened to you? With USB sticks or old HDs/PCs? I mean, the urge to check the contents for keys?

I'm paranoid, I know...

Be careful with random USB sticks. It's a major security issue and there have been plenty of incidents where malware transfers that way. When you find a USB don't go inserting that thing without protection  Grin

For example in China now many vending machines require a smartphone to purchase a cheap drink.

In real nations that aren't China, humans simply exterminate their govt when they try to force the Chinese social credit score system on them.

I got a harddrive from a laptop that broke. I know for a fact that it has old wallets on it, and that they are empty. Still gonna get the thing copied just to make sure.

It also possibly holds some other things I wanna keep, such as a copy of the original Colonization. Google has not been helpful in finding it elsewhere.

If you are after a copy of the old DOS colonization you should be able to find it online on an abandonware website somewhere. I have a copy myself, which I think is from my early 90s 486 (possible that I got from abandonware but I don't think so).

Anyway if you want a copy PM me and I'll upload it to dropbox for you, give me a day though just a little busy right now.

I still have a 486 that I play it on about once a year. I really love that game.

At 0%, Bitcoin has a higher yield than government bonds in 18 countries whose central banks are trying to debase their currencies and increase inflation.

In other news, Bitcoin is up 133% year-to-date.

For those who love to discuss Satoshi's identity and different theory

Quote
Paul Solotshi Calder Le Roux, a 46-year old criminal mastermind, is the creator of encryption software E4M and TrueCrypt (the cryptography encryption software Satoshi Nakamoto likely used to lock up his 1 million BTC), and author of an uncannily similar manifesto to the one in Bitcoin’s whitepaper in 1998.

But that’s not all: Paul Solotshi Calder Le Roux employs similar spelling and language in his writing style to that of Satoshi. He’s interested in gambling (Bitcoin’s initial code had a poker client included), and what’s more, he’s been in jail since 2012 – that’s probably the reason why his 1 million Bitcoin hasn’t moved

It was always going to be very impractical opsec-wise to have one huge party.
We're going to have to decentralise this thing.

I think you're right...

All of us getting together in one place and time that is publicly known (or that could leak) will create a huge BTC honey pot. We could then be abducted, tortured and have our BTC wrenched out of us! OUCH!

Most of us already are, or will soon be millionaires, some even billionaires... This is no joke! Gotta organize this thing very carefully...

I agree with your overall sentiment, and the point(s) that you are making, AlcoHolDL; however, I am going to quibble a bit with your assessment that "most of us already are, or will soon be millionaires."  To be or soon be a millionaire, most of us would need to have in the territory of 100 coins or assuming that a BTC price of $20k is imminent, then "most of us" would need to have 50 coins or more.  I have my doubts about that assessment, at least in terms of the "most" categorization.

OK, yeah, that was an edited post. In the original I had typed "most of us will soon be millionaires", and later added the "already are" part.

But still, in 3-5 years from now, even single-digit BTC coinage could be worth > $1M.

But yeah, "most" was probably too much.

Still, good things come to those who wait. IOW: HoDL!

Edit: Also, at the $100k party, just 10 BTC makes you a millionaire by definition...

I have no problem with this above clarification, but I did have a bit of a quibbling problem with any assertion that most current WO participants are millionnaires or millionnaire status is imminent.

Sure, it seems quite likely that BTC prices are going to go up, but really we should not take that going up for granted, either imminently or even in the longer term - even when odds are good.  So, it seems to me that current stash and current price are measures of millionnaire status (or imminent millionnaire status), and with current prices, it takes close to 120 BTC to have millionnaire status... and presuming that the price will double, "imminently" to bring down the requirement to 60 coins comes off as too presumptuous to me, concerning current status of most WO participants... who, a vast majority, likely have less than 40 coins, currently.

On a side note, I think Kenzawak and my path could cross sooner. The only drawback I can think of is I travel as a bag packer, and he's a slightly fancy traveler. Cheesy

That’d be cool if you two guys met. Where are you from, India? I’ve never been, I do plan to visit Goa though.


Been in france today “Biarritz” Nice place and even all the people “Waiters” were very kind, thats a change  Tongue
Probably Kenzawak’s side of the country..... Roll Eyes

There's a 130 millions jackpot at Euro-Millions this Friday.
If I win, the 100k party becomes a 9k party and it's on me.  Tongue

That was just one of many examples.  Many places in Europe have been like that for some time.   Most money in just numbers, even less real than BTC.   Times are changing ... but you still cling to out dated metal hoping for  a nuclear war to push us back into the dark ages.

The US appears to be on a mission to engage in multiple trade wars simultaneously. Various assets are suffering because of the uncertainty.

This couldn’t be more bullish for Bitcoin.

https://offthechain.substack.com/p/china-bitcoin-and-the-escalating

"If China is telling the truth when it says 'China does not want a trade war, but it is not afraid of one and it will fight one if necessary,' we are in for a long, painful time of uncertainty.

This is incredibly bullish for bitcoin."

Your example is pretty much my reality. (not completely) If it wasn't signature campaigns, airdrops and some altcoin trading, my portfolio would look exactly like that.

We all laugh at these numbers now but making %40 profits in a year and a half is not that bad. How much was yearly bank interest?
