kuhotina just went ahead and copy / pasted the following posts, straight from the original post of each respective thread:


original:

I've been reading the Lightning Network docs recently and just realized the core of it is just camouflaged and simplified PoS system (or sort of). Does it mean the main direction of Bitcoin's scalability issues addressing is Proof of Stake sidechains? If so, can currently existing PoS altcoins be used as a "delegate" layers for this?

Always Keep Your Coins In Wallets

While exchanges are a great place to purchase digital currencies, they may not be the best place to hold such assets.

"Don't store coins on an exchange," emphasized Eliosoff. "In Bitcoin's short history many, many exchanges have gotten hacked," he noted.

"It's fine to buy on an exchange like  Coinbase, but then move your coins into an online wallet like https://blockchain.info/wallet/, a mobile wallet like Jaxx or Coinomi, or create a paper wallet - all free and pretty easy," said Eliosoff.

Investors can take further action to manage risk by using both hot wallets (online) and cold wallets (offline), emphasized Matthew Unger, founder and CEO of iComply Investor Services inc.

"Just like you keep some cash in your wallet, some in your bank account and perhaps the really valuable stuff in a safe, you need to manage digital currencies in the same way," he stated.

User wendydo82 https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1986301 is copy/pasting old posts.

One example:

Original post:

Well, you are right, my bad. I just noticed number of blocks. At first moment i looked at Net Hashrate displayed at suprnova. Nevertheless more pools would be nice. If i am not mistaken current ethereum pools could be relatively easy forked and changed into shift pools. Am i right?

Jr. Member cryptolopoly banned! is trying to earn merit through plagiarism. Please ban him.

Copy (archived):
When you find an altcoin that interests you, go deep. Study how it’s being used. Talk to people who use it. Talk with the development team. Look at its adoption rate, its potential market size, its price history. These things will give you confidence in your winners and losers — and confidence, as we’ve seen, drives price.
His post is much longer, and more of it is copied (and shuffled a bit), but this is enough to bust him.

Original: https://www.bitcoinmarketjournal.com/altcoin-investing-101/



It's ironic, he wrote this today:
Sourcing it is fine. The rule indicates that the user in question is passing it off as their own. Citing a source ≠ plagiarism (unless there's improper citing).
Citing the source is one thing but copy/pasting should be assessed on a case-to-case basis.

I've seen some users simply copy pasting news articles on coindesk and pasting them here without any attempt at discussion at all. If this goes unchecked pretty soon you could have bots using forum keywords to search for online articles to copy paste here.

This user copy pasted most of this post directly from this site
Reported OP to MODS as plagiarism; just want to be sure.

Initial Coin Offerings, also known as ICOs is the cryptocurrency version of crowdfunding and are a part of the crypto world that is most likely here to stay. It's one of the easiest and most efficient methods for companies and individuals to fund their projects and for regular users to invest in projects they see value in. ICO investors benefit from the opportunity to create significant amounts of profit while supporting the development of disruptive decentralized platforms.

Signs of an ICO Scam

* Poor Presence
   One of the essential elements to consider when assessing a potential ICO scam is the individuals behind it. A robust initial coin offering will present potential investors with a detailed team breakdown, listing founders, developers, advisors, security experts, and anybody else associated with the project.

* Guaranteed Profits
   Of all the red flags that identify a potential fraud ICO, guaranteed profits are the most obvious. There are no certainties in the blockchain ecosystem, and no proven, reliable, or guaranteed methods of generating profits.

* No White Paper, Bad White Papers, or Blatantly Plagiarized White Papers
   A white paper is the most important element of any initial coin offering. In a white paper, an ICO will present an outline of what it plans to achieve, a breakdown of how the technical aspects of the platform function, and delineate its token distribution model.

* Shady Premines
   Premining is a common practice in the initial coin offering ecosystem that refers to tokens that are made available to a small group of individuals before the project or crowdsale goes live.

*  No Roadmap / Unrealistic Roadmaps
   Moreover, if the roadmap includes plans of using ICO capital to develop a prototype or makes any references to future token price, it’s probably a scam.

* Too Good
If an ICO appears to be too good to be true, it probably is. Maintaining a skeptical perspective when assessing initial coin offerings will help you to avoid getting scammed.

Economic systems need a trusted authority to control the money supply, as one tool of monetary policy. As an individual, I feel confident when I use central bank money that the state will enforce legal tender, backed by its monopoly on the use of legal force.. Well, IMO.. Bank still got what it takes for the economics right now

User joms123 has been caught* copy pasting,please perma ban.
Lightning Network

This terms explains everything in a clever way, so I’ll simply reiterate for the laziest who don’t feel like clicking a link:

You and I sign a contract.

As long as we both respect it, no one else needs to know we have this contract. But if I try to screw you, you want to be sure there’s someone who can force me to desist.

That’s Lightning Network: the contract is a smart contract, the enforcer is the blockchain. As long as no one breaks the law, millions of smart contracts can be stipulated simultaneously off chain, thus reducing greatly the amount of congestion on chain, but as soon as there’s a contentious, the smart contract can be broadcasted on the network (classic BTC transaction) and the power of blockchain will fix the issue. As simple as that. It’s just the translation of common practices into crypto-space.

Your answer is just a copy paste from this website: https://www.quora.com/What-is-Lightening-Network-and-what-does-it-do-Which-cryptocurrency-stands-to-gain-the-most-from-this-technology . You should at least cited their website as your source.

Newbie thsaudwl banned! probably doesn't speak English, and has no idea what he's copying. Please ban him.

Copy:
That is the idea, it is mostly aesthetic.  Instead of having to run oclvanitygen once per GPU, you'll be able to run it once per system, and tell it to use all of your GPUs.

Organized clustering across systems will be more complicated.  One way to do this, in the near future, that follows the model of bitcoin mining, will be:
- Run oclvanityminer on each system in the cluster.
- Run a private bounty server, or the equivalent of a mining proxy, and configure your oclvanityminers to connect to it.

There isn't a private bounty server, at least not yet

The way I see it, there is no performance benefit in supporting multiple GPU's from the same instance. It's just aesthetic.

Should posts such as this be reported here?

User 3la2 made a direct quote of the OP from the poloniex announcement thread. He's not added a comment to the quote, it's just a spam post. By quoting it he's not technically copy pasting, but he might as well have.

COIN DEVS: BEWARE OF SCAMMERS CLAIMING TO BE FROM POLONIEX. I (busoni/Tristan) am the only one who has the authority to list coins. Furthermore, I will never approach you and ask for a bounty.

Please note: if you need support, the fastest way to get it is to open a ticket at poloniex.freshdesk.com. Please include all relevant information, e.g. txid for deposits, exact amounts, etc. And please, don't open multiple tickets with the same problem, or send the same issue to several different places. It will only slow things down.



I would like to announce a new cryptocurrency exchange - Poloniex.com.

Another exchange? Why?

Several reasons. Here are the major ones.

First, none of the major exchanges are listing NXT. DGEX is great, but I have long wanted to see NXT on an exchange that has candlestick charts and executes trades at the best possible price. I also think NXT will benefit from being on more than one exchange, and listed alongside other, more well-known currency pairs.

Secondly, I want the fees to be fair, with no surprises. Trading fees are 0.2%, and they will never be raised. Having no fees is not sustainable and will ultimately result in corners being cut, and having no fees for a while to draw customers in and then suddenly imposing them feels like a bait-and-switch to me. Like Pete at CoinedUp, I find withdrawal fees to be outrageous, so Poloniex charges only the TX fee imposed by the client.

Lastly, it is a top priority to keep Poloniex running smoothly. We will not bite off more than we can chew. If traffic starts swamping the servers or we have any problems with the functionality of the exchange, we will address the problem before continuing to expand. We will be upfront about issues.

How can I trust you?

Trust has to be built. I will operate Poloniex with honesty and integrity and be as transparent as possible when answering your questions. I believe this is the only true way to earn trust.


I will monitor this thread and respond to your questions and feedback. If there is anything you have always wanted to see in an exchange, please let us know!

Copy/pasted a 3 year old post:

Difficulty is totally messed up. Currently the timestamp == block number, which means that every block will increase the difficulty, which will quickly lead to unusable network. Better fix it fast or Shift will be no more.

Mr.Cross

There has never been a better time to be a blockchain developer or cryptographer than right now. With the great rise in both value and prominence of cryptocurrencies in 2017, we’ve seen an unprecedented rise in the demand for blockchain developers. Global giants like IBM, Oracle and SAP are betting big on blockchain technology and are hiring developers in droves. These conglomerates are however not the only companies in need of blockchain developers and they have to compete for them with blockchain and cryptocurrency startups that are springing up in hundreds every day and all over the map. Even global consulting titans such as Accenture and Deloitte are shifting focus to the blockchain industry, opening up even more opportunities in the field. With the enterprise blockchain expected to rise in value from $2.5 billion currently to $20 billion in 2025, the need to find the best talent can’t be overemphasized.

Copy and paste without citing a source is plagiarism.
