I have been trying to accumulate more Monero over the past two years as well as Deep onion for the past 3 months, both coins seem to be doing a great job with anonymity, no matter how much overtime I do, it still feels like not enough lol

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

Yeah 2k18 will be an intersting year for xmr. In my opinion monero  AND onion wont prevail both. And monero is already used more often to pay goods than onion so i think xmr will outperform onion Cheesy

  If you haven't been using the Monerujo wallet for Android,  You're missing out.  It was good, worked as described, no fuss. 
And then...  the integration of XMR.to has made things ridiculously simple.  XMR.to was always easy to use, but still required some inputs.  Now, you open Monerujo wallet, scan the BTC QR code to pay, tap confirm and done.  it just works, every time.

  Binaryfate, you're awesome.  Glad to see you on the Core Team!



Oh yeah, don't keep too much crypto on a phone, and blah blah blah, surely you know the drill...

Well now. This is less than ideal.

The Tor Project - a private nonprofit known as the "NSA-proof" gateway to the "dark web," turns out to be almost "100% funded by the US government" according to documents obtained by investigative journalist and author Yasha Levine.

In a recent blog post, Levine details how he was able to obtain roughly 2,500 pages of correspondence via FOIA requests while performing research for a book. The documents include strategy, contract, budgets and status updates between the Tor project and its primary source of funding; a CIA spinoff known as the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), which "oversees America's foreign broadcasting operations like Radio Free Asia and Radio Free Europe."

Quote
By following the money, I discovered that Tor was not a grassroots. I was able to show that despite its indie radical cred and claims to help its users protect themselves from government surveillance online, Tor was almost 100% funded by three U.S. National Security agencies: the Navy, the State Department and the BBG. Following the money revealed that Tor was not a grassroots outfit, but a military contractor with its own government contractor number. In other words: it was a privatized extension of the very same government that it claimed to be fighting.

The documents conclusively showed that Tor is not independent at all. The organization did not have free reign to do whatever it wanted, but was kept on a very short leash and bound by contracts with strict contractual obligations. It was also required to file detailed monthly status reports that gave the U.S. government a clear picture of what Tor employees were developing, where they went and who they saw. -Yasha Levine

Thanks for letting us know you have no clue on privacy

Meh. It's possible to invest in the idea that people are going to move towards privacy focused cryptos without assuming that they will know which actually provides it. Cheesy

And This again, Deeponin is nothing but bitcoin run through tor, any coin can do that. Hell thinking Dash is private is another perfect example of not knowing what the tech does and doesn't do.

People just throw money at what ever is marketed at them, and they get what they deserve when they are left holding the bag.

Sure I know all that. I don't think it invalidates what I said though.

Lol yeah I know you know it, my post was directed at the person Globb0 had responded too. With just your quote of it, It does look like I was saying that to you. And "And This again" was me saying that you were the third person I was agreeing with, the second was the one I quested with "And This" as the comment and the first I quoted with "This". So in essence I was agreeing with all three comments and elaborating them.

Damn I hope that makes sense I'm a little trashed and tired. Smiley

Peer review is more relevant for scientific articles before accepting to publish.

Not really, They are mandatory for any infrastructure change in a critical system.

I lost several XMRs in Mintpal, does any body know how can i get these coins now?

It's AFU for me as well but I'm thinking thats because I have JS blocked and for some weird reason getmonero.org just wants to keep using it. It's these type things that put a bee in my bonnet as the saying goes. Wink I just hate security holes on projects that completely rely on providing the BEST security possible.

BTW I just blocked the recents posts and the other element that are hanging in the middle of the page and can read the page now.

Great to hear BF's are ready for Audit! exiting times. Cheesy

Bummer to see Tacotime has left us. Sad

Anyone that knows anything knew the bolded is bullshit and tor has been compromised for years. Of course I think it's accepted that only the Bad guys need to worry about that, IOW because the NSA cannot come out in court and say "Yup we busted you cause tor is compromised" that it is safe enough if you are not doing something really bad and if you are they have special courts for you and you will not have the rights to demand the proof against you anyway.

"Bitcoin Is Falling Out of Favor on the Dark Web", from The Atlantic: https://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2018/03/bitcoin-crash-dark-web/553190/?single_page=true

Relevant quote:

Quote
“Monero appears to be the way forward, at least for now: as you said, bitcoin is currently unusable for smaller transactions.”

It appears to The Atlantic that current motivation for ditching bitcoin transactional use in the undernet has been skyrocketed fees. It could be presently. It's still good enough because it gets people to try XMR, get them acquainted wth the tools and additional benefits, so next time they buy _stuff_, even if the btc fee lowered again, will consider reusing xmr.

Unrelated question: could anyone share, or point me to a economic work/textbook/paper that could explain exactly how the debt-based money extract wealth through inflation?

Thanks and cheers

Smiley

AFA the funding, so what The navy wrote the software in the first place this is well known.

Well I mean there is compromised and there is COMPROMISED. Sort of like how there is a difference between "we can expend some resources and figure out a users activity if we need to" and "we have a searchable database cataloging all user activity on this network".

We all knew that they could attack it by running tons of nodes and doing timing analysis and stuff like that. Maybe they occasionally found other vulnerabilities and exploits maybe those got patched maybe quickly maybe not so quickly. But I think it's an altogether different thing to learn that the entire operation is funded from top to bottom by the deep state. And I also think there is a difference between the original software being developed by the navy vs the orginal software being developed by the navy + the deep state is still funding nearly all of it's development to this day.

Basically I'm trying to make the case that this is a meaningful revelation that tells us some things that we might have speculated about but didn't know before and that how ever much we trusted tor before (like you said about useful scenarios) we should trust it less now.

Assuming that they exist,  they will be bricks in a few weeks.  or they can switch to shitcoin mining, I guess, but then they'd have to find a shitcoin buyer, which would be difficult.

I started mining a XMR using 10 VPS, I mined 50 XMR that was 2015, the value was 150000 sats, that's the range.
Now XMR 0.02782770 BTC/XMR so lucky.

Nice to see Monero getting more attention, even if it is due in part to this silly spork. Grin

I started mining a XMR using 10 VPS, I mined 50 XMR that was 2015, the value was 150000 sats, that's the range.
Now XMR 0.02782770 BTC/XMR so lucky.

With vps, perhaps, but a Xeon phi board sells for less than 500 on eBay.  Anyhow, there is an xmr mining thread for such discussion.

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day.  Give a man a Poisson distribution and he eats at random times independent of one another, at a constant known rate.
