I don't like what "someone" is doing. They are not testing anything, will just spam dust transactions. There will be no new conclusion to draw from this round of "tests". Sad part is we cannot stop them. If the attack transactions have enough fees in them. They will be included in blocks and hold up more legit transactions. Miners can filter them if they wanted to, but will raise concerns on the blacklisting issue.

There is already a default threshold for "dust" under ~550 satoshis (I believe it is 546 satoshis) in the Core client. This is not "blacklisting" but rather opting not to relay uneconomical transactions in which the outputs are default unspendable. We can raise this threshold or otherwise penalize dust outputs.

I just don't want to give these fuck faces publicity to the drive by topic readers.

Hopefully people actually read this shit and make their own opinion.

Does anyone actually use coinwallet? I wouldn't not after this BS. In fact the community should promote a total boycott. It's not enough to just ignore them, hit em where it hurts, in their wallet

They don't appear to be a real service. They allow you to deposit bitcoin and even provide an address for you to send cash in mail. Of course, there is no customer support on the other side. Several people have tried to create accounts/send money as a test; Coinwallet never responded. They are not a real company.

I have never used them, but if this is true, then they do have some shady intentions with this stress test. Also, I don't see how would they profit from this stress test if they are doing it for self advertising as we have concluded that it might be the reason behind the stress test. They have something else in mind.

By the way, today is September 10th, at what time and which time zone is stress test starting exactly?

The Stress test is already on, just that it isn't called stress test any more.

See https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1175321.0 for more info.


Tomorrow’s test will not occur as planned. CoinWallet.eu will not be sending a single transaction. Instead, we will be giving away over 200 Bitcoins to the community. Previous tests have involved splitting bitcoins into hundreds of thousands of tiny outputs. Now, as a gift to the community, all of the private keys that contain those outputs will be posted publicly, making the coins free for the taking.

Here are 5 private keys, each containing 0.53918 BTC. Thousands more will be posted tomorrow.

KxSzV3yCyaQEufJ8PQkkk8FvF4tKcwh1mpbumTjCJt3UPoc9QjAT

Our stress testing days are officially over. We thank the community for its patience. These tests have spurred much needed discussion on the block size debate.

I think people will rapidly cotton on to the fact that it's pointless trying to claim those coins unless they have the requisite skillz. Having said that there's no limit to greed and stupidity.

as bahamapascal quoted those scumbags are using the same strategy they used last time.
they are spreading the private keys of the addresses which they want to use on their spam attack so the number of transactions go even higher by using other people's greed for making a 0.001BTC

i remember last time i saw the same thing on reddit on a post disguised as "i can't send bitcoin from my wallet, please help me" and then he started leaking 100 private keys.

Come on Bitcointalk, where's your research face?



We go to "deposit" a "bank draft", and are told we should make it out to payee 1009926 B.C. LTD. Stupidly with all these "methods" we are told to blindly send them money, but give them no way of identifying that the money they receive is owned by a particular account.



The company we are interested in was registered in August 2014, so it's either completely fake or for some reason hasn't been used before (I had a look around, there's no results for this particular canadian buisness number to be found anywhere).



The company number does exist in the database of the Candian government, but it appears to be a reassignment, this result is from 1986. It turns out for some reason financial services are exempt from being listed in public record. Might be worth while if someone in the US or Canada can contact a government office and see if there's a way to get information about them this way?



This address in particular is fairly useless, it's a remailer/virtual office located in Canada, this is fairly interesting because it's pretty off the beaten track and nowhere like the UK based address they claim on their website.



The website doesn't have a shitty CloudFlare configuration so they don't leak their host, however, the nameserver pair they use might expose something interesting.



The pairs of names CloudFlare assigns is unique to the user account that adds the domain, so either coinwallet.eu is related to ibookair.net and lauincherfenix.com.ar, or someone just got unlucky and has the same pairing as them. Useless information now but might be interesting in the future.



Their email sending configuration is a bit weird, it uses mandrill as a proxy to avoid exposing their server behind cloudflare. Mandrill leaks the user ID of the person who made the account in the headers, which might be useful to compare with other dodgy services to see if there's any matches that might expose more about them. Specifically if you search "X-Mandrill-User: md_30632414" on your raw mailbox files we might get somewhere interesting, there's currently no results for that sadly.



The wallet they use can be found on walletexplorer as https://www.walletexplorer.com/wallet/000babbf8d1cc6e6 . Doesnt look like they have a particularly huge business but you can see some of their spam going in and out in the older sections of the page.

http://regex.info/exif.cgi?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.coinwallet.eu%2Fassets%2Fimg%2Flogo.png

We bust out the EXIF viewer, and find that their logo was created 3 months 17 days ago, using Adobe Photoshop CC on Windows. Most importantly, we now know the creators timezone is GMT+1. This timezone appears to suggest the person who created the logo was located in Algeria, Angola, Benin, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo, Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Guinea, Niger or Nigeria.

I've also requested for the WHOIS information on the domain coinwallet.eu to be unmasked by the registry.

whoever you are - you're the shit. Start offering lessons on sluething and opsec on streamium - you'll go places.  Wink

Thanks for spending your time looking into these people.
Please make one thing clearer for me: why would you assume that GMT +1 only applies to the African nations you list and not to the European nations also in the same 15 degrees of longitude?

ok after some deep searching in /r/bitcoin i finally found it  Cool
it was from a new, unknown account.
here is the post that i was talking about:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/3cf6qg/need_help_moving_coins_to_new_address/
Quote
I have 1.6356 btcs in the address 1BhXei2ZzdqXQzFWWoDzyDU3kxHXhJ57nQ but I am having trouble spending them. The wallet I use keeps closing when I try to send them. Can someone help me move all of the coins in it to my new address 1Ac1nwLoKMrGxKnohJK6uAaZtou36Ho33o
Here is the private key to the first address
5HygvRk7qNedE684krBVptrienjxGckhFscbL7HH96kqnu3SDVP
Please don't steal them ok? If you do, think of children and only take a little bit.

and here is the mass leak (funny enough it is in the same post):
https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/3cf6qg/need_help_moving_coins_to_new_address/csuyyi3

another one (with the same title as the recent one on bitcointalk that is moved to games and round now):
https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/3chere/stress_test_giveaway/

and this was not the only person/account on reddit that was spreading these private keys

Hovewer,too much stress test on btc.


Last time the network handled it quite well.

The fact that at any point someone is able to "force" users to input a higher fee just in order to get their transaction processed in reasonable time is not
something i would call quite well. The point of bitcoin is to offer minimum fee and processing time for any transaction, anything else just makes it loose it's purpuse.

Do you have a solution?

This "stress test" is a very realistic situation if BTC ever started to get rolling.

Coinwallet is probably QuadrigaCX - Canadian firm - they seem to have re-branded themselves. They are using the same numbered company 1009926 B.C. LTD. This is not necessarily illegal.

frankenmint's second search is WRONG - imho. (http://abdc.bc.ca/uploads/reg50_steps_to_incorporating_a_company_in_bc.pdf)
'A company can also choose to use as its name, the
incorporation number of the company followed by
“B.C.
Ltd.” (example, 0123456 B.C. Ltd.) If you choose
to use the incorporation number as the company’s name,
you do not need a name approval and reservation.
The
incorporation number is assigned by the Corporate
Registry at the time the Incorporation Application is
electronically filed with the Corporate Registry.'

However note that, this is called an Incorporation Number and you need to pay a fee to see ANY further details on BC Online. You can mail:  BCRegistries@gov.bc.ca and ask them for some free info. My point is, it's an Incorporation number not a Business number which is longer.
