Researchers Find Bitcoin Network 3X More ‘Evil’ Than the Public Internet

Just recently a research group called Rapid7 published a report that reveals over a year’s worth of research regarding malicious activity tethered to Bitcoin Core (BTC) full nodes. By utilizing data collected from a network called ‘Project Heisenberg,’ and its internet scanner ‘Project Sonar,’ alongside intelligence from Bitnodes, the team had found quite a lot of exploits being shared between full blockchain nodes.

Bitcoin full node operators connect usually connect by default to a TCP service on port 8,333, but there are also over 600 alternative ports available. Rapid7’s recent research used data from the team’s Project Sonar which revealed the top three countries with the most port 8,333 nodes stem from the U.S., China, and Germany. The researchers began the blockchain surveillance back in August of 2017 and found more than 11,000 nodes per day. Moreover, the researchers collected data from more than 144,000 unique full nodes during the course of the study.

what is it:

to Bitcoin Core (BTC) full nodes.

Is there another bitcoin? because i only know bitcoin (BTC) so I do not understand why you are calling bitcoin core ( BTC). just by seeing it "bitcoin core (BTC)" I understand that the article seems to be made to destroy bitcoin reputation (BTC). because they did not tell the core to correct it instead of spreading it all over the internet? this is all very strange, Speaking for a person of low IQ as I understand, what does this mean? that we can not use bitcoin? Is what do they mean?

It is an article coming from bitcoin(dat)cawm, so we know what the motive behind this Bitcoin Core nonsense is.

Roger's wealth will surely last a long while, so will all these sponsored garbage articles, but I am actually happy he's doing this. It only shows the outside world how much of a stupid and delusional bastard he is. The more he keeps hammering down on Bitcoin, ahum, Core, the more he's convincing investors not to buy any BCash. In other words, he's making investors aware of a major flaw in the whole BCash ecosystem, and that major flaw is Roger himself.

BCash without any news reaching the headlines is a few hundred BTC volume generating coin, which says enough. Without Roger's input, BCash = BTG.
