Reduction of anonymity set is confirmed in BCX's exploit, so please stop bagging on BCX. He appears to be legit. I am working with smooth now on mitigation and also whether wallets can be stolen or not. That is a key question.

Appears the CN devs were already aware of some of what I pointed out, but I may have a key insight. Still trying to determine this.

Am busy right now on this. So be patient.

can other long term posters confirm if you are or are not anonymint?

I can confirm with tremendous confidence that he is Anonymint.

He mentioned Martin Armstrong.  ID confirmed as our lovable nutjob.  Case closed.

Judging from public posts, I believe they are two pseudonyms belonging to the same individual. I would be very surprised to learn otherwise.

I have no reason to doubt it. I have no out-of-band method to verify it though. Others may have one.

If you're a CryptoNote-based cryptocurrency where persons unknown are in control of, say, 82% of the outputs then there is a problem and anonymity cannot be trusted. Monero does not have that problem. There are further mitigations we are taking to ensure that a cascade is incredibly improbable, which was the entire point of the MRL-0001 research bulletin.

Ok, maybe I'm overlooking something here.

If there is an exploit, surely the developers of Monero would spot it better than anyone else? It must be a pretty damn obscure exploit if they haven't found it. Or maybe it doesn't exist. Here, I've found this exploit in your code, pay me 100 BTC and I'll tell you what it is. Wink wink.

If I was the Monero devs, I'd be tirelessly looking for the exploit and fixing it myself. If such exploit even exists. If it doesn't, then they'll have a job finding it, that's for sure. If it does exist, then it sounds like they'll know exactly where to look for it at this point.

Geez I was so worried about how I would be anonymous in the future and it seems I have the opposite problem and can't even convince people who I am. Perfect.  Kiss

I am 60% sure I have an amplification to their paper which makes the attack much more plausible and pervasive.

I need to go eat, then I need to write some code for an algorithm for smooth to document more precisely what I mean by the amplification.

Sold off most of mine already during the first run up, sold the rest off recently....regardless FUD or not, can't be bothered and will not risk it.

Glad I'm mostly in XST, amongst other good coins like HAL and Librex.

Stealthcoin, honestly.you can't go wrong .

You are going to have to satisfy yourself then.  Noone can be sure there is not a team of people posting as Anonymint and his other psedonyms.

I would personally place a very large bet on the identity being the same.  And I am confident it is all one man, who lives in the Phillipines, created cool page etc, is a cryptography autodidact, is ~ 5'7, sufffers nerve damage from a AI disease, etc etc...

I'll bet you 1BTC TFM and Anonymint are the same.

Are you in reality or in a film that is playing back in your mind?

I call 10000% bullshit on you.  Come and get my XMR wallet, I dare you.

Sell and dump all you weak hands and feet.

Okay. My guess though is that you'll came to the same conclusions we did independently too -- assuming that Hp is a cryptographically secure hash function that acts as a random oracle perfectly and that q values are generated totally randomly, that recovery of x (private key) is impossible so long as your PRNG isn't compromised. And, if your PRNG is, then you can't even generate non-ring signatures securely.

There is a thing called "fresh eyes" where an outsider (or child) sees something that everyone else misses, because of confirmation bias or other cognitive artifacts.
