Bitcoin Blender Cryptocurrency Mixing Service Shuts Itself Down

Quote
Cryptocurrency mixing service Bitcoin Blender has reportedly willingly shut down after issuing a short notice asking its users to withdraw their funds, tech news outlet BleepingComputer reports on May 30.

https://cointelegraph.com/news/bitcoin-blender-cryptocurrency-mixing-service-shuts-itself-down

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=436467.240

All mixers are going to disappear.

Oof... extra glad I got into an exchange sig campaign. There's gonna be a lot of sig campaigners out of work when/if ChipMixer shuts down. Better try to up my post quality from now on as there might be some hungry competition out there.

Wasabi wallet and one's like it will fill the void

CoinJoin really is a smart way to combine transaction outputs.. Its a meaningful way to take advantage of bitcoin's relatively long block times to mix coins together. Even if something like Wasabi wallet is some day considered a "money laundering service", there will eventually be decentralized applications not owned by anyone that can achieve the same effect.

Good morning Bitcoinland.

What a zany day yesterday was... up $400, down $1100, and back up $400... currently $8391USD/$11330CAD (Bitcoinaverage).

A great opportunity for trader/gamblers but no big deal for investor/holders, except perhaps as a buying opportunity for those lucky enough to buy at $8k.

Overall a $300 dip is negligible. The fact that $8k held strong is much more important. Unfortunately the fact that $9k fought back in undeniable.

As I said yesterday, this could take a while. Still, May was a very good month.

Go Bitcoin go.

If BSV was a scam, why would
@CalvinAyre
 invest $300 Million dollars into mining equipment that loses all its value in less than 2 years?

That’s $300 000 000. Take just 2 seconds to think about it.

Open your eyes people, the  train is full steam ahead, so get on board!

One fun recent rumour was that CSW somehow has an encrypted copy of Satoshi's wallets. He and Ayre are trying to bruteforce the passwords using this supposed "minng" equipment. They reckon it could take another year or three, at which point the "Tulip Trust" narrative will explain why CSW, nee Nakamoto, can now sign and spend...

Yep, that's the theory that says Paul Calder Le Roux is the real Satoshi and CSW was one of his bitches partners and he snitched on him.

Thought CSW was hired as an expert and given access to Paul Le Roux equipment after he was busted, not that they were partners.

https://www.crypto-news.in/explainer/bitcoin-explainer/paul-le-roux-yet-another-satoshi-candidate/

"There are users on online cryptocurrency forums and message boards who theorise, Craig Wright may have been involved with Paul Le Roux from the day he started working on Bitcoin project. Wright became a snitch to US government leading to arrest of Paul Le Roux and used his friendship with Dave Kleiman to steal a hard disk of Le Roux which contains more than one million bitcoins which he has been using as basis to support his claims behind the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto.
...
There was also an anonymous user who theorised that Craig Wright’s hard dish with one million Bitcoin is actually hard disk stolen from Le Roux which was encrypted using his True Crypto software preventing Wright from accessing the bitcoins stored inside. The user also suggested that Calvin Ayre’s mining warehouse is just a front to hide true function of massive data centers which Calvin and Wright have so far been using to attempt decryption of true crypt volumes to plunder the bitcoins but have met with little success.

Intriguing...

Assuming the above is true, they won't have much success, as TrueCrypt is a tough nut to crack. If Paul Le Roux has used it properly (i.e., using a cryptographically strong passphrase and/or nested encryption algorithms) it will take centuries for them to brute-force it open.

But... If Paul Le Roux was not very careful in choosing a strong passphrase, then there may be a good chance that they succeed. Craig Wright would then be able to sign as Nakamoto and would have the proof he needs. He could also dump those million BTC and cause havoc...

I really hope they end up like this:

"

They're setting January 2020 as the time they'll have access to the keys in the "tulip trust". Can't time brute force attack down to a month (and unlikely that they'll exhaust all permutations in such short time). Their actions don't align with someone with access to BTC1MM. At this point the most likely scenario (outside of them just straight up scamming) is CSW somehow geting his hands on one or few private keys (with no significant amount of BTC), but just enough to capitalize on "Satoshi" brand and fool Galvin

In my publication number 1337 I find this:

It does not show the number of messages, shows Ieet. Shocked



I do not know what explanation it can be?

- SMF forum error
- Some gadget of @theymos

The meaning of Ieet (1337)

Quote
The term "leet" is derived from the word elite, used as an adjective to describe formidable prowess or accomplishment, especially in the fields of online gaming or computer hacking. The leet lexicon includes spellings of the word as 1337 or l33t.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leet

Any comment on this?

Doesn't matter. By Craig's own words, possession doesn't mean ownership:


found this at his blog.
https://craigwright.net/blog/bitcoin-blockchain-tech/shades-of-black/

Quote
Possession of a key is not evidence of ownership. It was never the intent of Bitcoin. It is the intent of people like Greg Maxwell, James Donald, and others who seek a system that acts outside the law. If you have a stolen asset, possession doesn’t make it yours. It applies to Bitcoin equally. If bitcoin is stolen through stolen keys, they do not give the receiver ownership. They do not act as proof. In monetary law, money is fungible and transferable only when it is exchanged without knowledge of fraud or malpractice and for good consideration. It is critical. To be money, Bitcoin does not rely on the mere possession of keys, which is the aim and desire of those seeking a new version of Liberty Reserve coin or e-gold. There are some who will tell you that the mere possession of a key is definitive evidence. They are avoiding the rules of evidence and courts, and seek to alter their nature.

sure sounds like a blacklisting of some sort. some coins will not be allowed to move via private key when some criteria/law is broken.

perhaps im misunderstanding. i seek clarity.

Soooooo.......
