Buyer Loses $278,000 USD in Bitcoin Robbery - Bitcoinist.com

Reminder from previous bull markets

Usually, bull markets attract a lot of new investors - although speculators should be the right word here - and as usual, a lot of them are going to be crushed a way or another.
First, before putting a single dollar, euro or whatever in the market, you should read a lot to know exactly what you're looking for.
Are you here for the tech and/or the cypherpunk ethos ? Great, there's lot of resources out there (my links are cleaned but as always, do your due diligence) :
Now, you've read and you want to put some skin in the game. Several exchanges are acceptable, a lot of aren't, be careful and assume that none really are (know that I won't post any ref links) :
This was for centralized exchanges aka CEX. Talking about custodial, you'll need wallets to store your (bit)coins. Always try to use non-custodial wallets, which means wallets that give you your private keys. This way, if the software goes down, you can always retreive your money. Now, I won't link to all the existing wallets but will advise you to buy hardware wallets (trezor or ledger but there are others) or to create (on off-gap computers) paper wallets you're able to store safely (against all risks, not only robbery but housefire). You also could use your memory with brain wallets but, my gosh, I wouldn't trust myself. For Bitcoin (or even Litecoin), Electrum software can do a good job (but save your keys).
AGAIN, DON'T KEEP YOUR SAVINGS ON AN EXCHANGE
Now, about trading : it's been repeated and repeated but don't chase pumps and altcoins. Yep, it's probably the fastest way to make money. It's also the fastest to lose it. I won't lie : I made good money during the 2017-bullrun and I took profits but I also forgot to sell some shitcoins thinking it would keep going up, now I'm still holding these bags (although I don't really care). I know that a lot forgot to take profits. Take profits, always take profits, whatever your strategy is. Don't fall for people trying to sell you their bags, for ICOs trying to sell you a product which isn't released yet and obviously, don't fall for people asking for your private key.
Also, know that there's two endgames : accumulating bitcoin or fiat. I'm rather in the first team but whatever your strategy is, take profits. (Yes, I know, some will say accumulating ethereum or something else). It's true that a lot of ethereum holders made a lot of money during the last bullrun (ethereum helped me make money too) but I'm really biased in favor of bitcoin (and monero). So, pick your coin but again, do your due diligence.
A lot of people here or there will talk about the best tech, the fact that bitcoin is old and slow. I would need another post to go further on this point but know that a lof of air flight systems are old too but reliable. Trustless and reliable is the point here.
This is the post from someone who bought bitcoin seven or six years ago, who lost part of them, who spent part of them (but don't regret this at all), who is still learning and I hope it will help others, although it would need a book to be complete.

Golden Star Casino Full Review

Payment processing has always been the biggest strain on the online gambling industry. Changing regulatory environments have sent casinos into a tailspin when they find out their main source of deposits is suddenly not available to them. In other cases, when an online casino finds a company willing to take them on as a client, the rates they are charged are as close to robbery as can be; this ends up cutting margins down to a bare minimum, making running an online casino less of an enticing career move.
The introduction of crypto-currency over the last few years has shown some signs of promise in the online gaming space. As the general public gets more accustomed to the idea of Bitcoin and its uses, we will see it adopted across more traditional purchasing. The gaming industry has adopted the technology from the start, with several Bitcoin-only sites popping up in 2013 and beyond. Recently, many providers have added cryptocurrency to their traditional payment methods, offering special bonuses for players to use the option.
Golden Star Casino is one of the true hybrid casinos when it comes to payments. As you will see in the review, the casino has integrated Bitcoin into all facets of their operations, from games to payments to promotions. This is a great way for players who aren’t familiar with the product to be able to give it a try without committing to a Bitcoin-only site.

About Golden Star Casino

Golden Star Casino is owned and operated by Jubise International N.V. Casinos, a Curacao based company. Established in 2012, the company also has a gaming license from the Curacao Gaming Authority. This license isn’t exactly rock-solid for players; the country tends to turn a blind eye to company behavior until it is too late. With the license, however, Jubise is able to attract the payment processors and software vendors it needs to provide you with a positive gaming experience at their site.

Who Can Play at Golden Star Casino?

Even though the company is licensed in Curacao, which would clearly give the impression that they would take players from the U.S., Golden Star doesn’t allow Americans to deposit or gamble. Well, actually… there is a way, but you need to be aware of what you are getting into. It seems that U.S. players who use Bitcoin to deposit can actually create real money accounts and play at the tables. However, there have been several instances of players trying to withdraw their funds which, once it was determined they were in the U.S., had those funds confiscated and accounts closed. It is hard to say if you can withdraw right into your Bitcoin account without it being detected, but for the time being, I do not advise you try this from the States unless you are willing to take the risk that your deposit may be taken away from you.
As for other restricted countries, here is the list:
  • United Kingdom
  • Spain
  • United States
Also, please bear in mind that certain software suppliers restrict what countries are allowed to access their games. As a result, you may find some of the games written about in this review are not actually available in your country. The best thing to do is to create an account, and you will be able to see all the options for your casino play.

Software Suppliers

As mentioned, Golden Star has chosen to work with several software partners for their brand. This is excellent news for you; the company has chosen a broad spectrum of vendors including some of the most prestigious in the industry. You can find games from the following companies currently at Golden Star Casino:
  • Microgaming
  • Betsoft
  • Net Entertainment
  • iSoftBet
  • Endorphina
  • Ezugi
  • Amatic
  • SoftSwiss
  • Quickfire
  • Belatra
  • Pragmatic Play
The casino games at Golden Star are available in a no-download format, meaning you can play them instantly through your browser. Many of the games are also formatted to be able to be played on most mobile phones or tablets, allowing you to take your casino experience on the move with you no matter where you are.

The Good Stuff

Jackpots

I love a casino that not only has several progressive jackpots available for its players but one who isn’t shy about telling you who has won them. At Golden Star, you can select from over 20 different jackpot games, and if you look on their jackpots page, there is a scrolling bar of recent winners; no one like to see that a jackpot isn’t paying out. Give some of their jackpot games a go if you want to get a little something extra out of your slots experience.

Bitcoin Slots

This is an interesting option for players; there are slots in the casino lobby that are designed for Bitcoin-only play. Why would a casino do this? Well, with the fluctuating value of Bitcoin these days, players may not want to get hosed on exchange rates. Also, this is an excellent way to have players learn about Bitcoin by having to think regarding the cryptocurrency throughout their entire casino experience.
Satoshi’s Secret is the most popular Bitcoin game in the industry, and you can try it at Golden Star Casino for free if you like to get a feel for the slot machine.

The Bad Stuff

Complaints about Terms and Conditions

No one likes to see complaints about an online casino, and many times I can dismiss them as individuals who are just upset that they lost their money. However, there are recurring concerns about the changing Terms and Conditions at Golden Star Casino. The company denies that they have made any changes without letting their players know, and have taken a strong stance on that accusation. I will continue to monitor that situation; if I find it to be actually happening, then it will be a big strike against the casino.

Games limited by Country

I’ll add this to the Bad Stuff because I live in Canada, and as a result, I am not able to access some of the better games that Golden Star Casino has on their site. While I totally understand why the casino isn’t allowed to offer all their games to all their players, it would be beneficial to have this information laid out in a clear manner somewhere on their website. I would much rather know going in instead of reading a review like this only to find out a game I love is not available when I make my deposit.

Game Selection

As I mentioned, you will find over 900 games at Golden Star Casino. I am going to take a look at all the different categories in more detail for you now.

Slots

It isn’t surprising to hear that the majority of available games in the Golden Star Casino lobby are slots games – this goes for almost every casino in the industry, whether online or land-based. However, having the multiple providers allows this casino to provide you several different looks to their slots catalog. They range from the fantastic content of the Microgaming slots to the 3D slot games that made Betsoft famous.

Table Games

The table games options at Golden Star Casino are a bit underwhelming considering how many suppliers the company has partnered with. Now, I may be missing some of the table games because of where I am reviewing the site from; all accounts are that they aren’t using Microgaming or NetEnt for games outside North America.

Video Poker

Along the same theme, there aren’t as many video poker variants as I would like to see at Golden Star Casino. I know that I am in the minority when it comes to video poker; I like the game more than most people do. Still, an online casino should easily be able to offer as many games as they can. Maybe they will read this review and add some from their vendors; I know they are available!

Specialty Games

One area where Golden Star Casino has apparently spent some time in development is in the Specialty Games offering. Using their partners like Quickfire, the casino gives you many different types of games to play that are not like the typical table games and slots. Many of these games have worse chances of coming out a winner, but I always consider them to be a nice way to take a break from a long session at the Blackjack table.

Live Dealer

Golden Star Casino has selected Ezugi as their Live Dealer provider. While the studios and dealers used by Ezugi are quite nice, there isn’t much in the way of selection from a games perspective. You can play the following games via the Live Dealer function:
  • Bet on Numbers (Bingo variant)
  • Keno
  • Blackjack
  • Roulette

PROMOTIONS

The promotions at Golden Star are pretty bland overall. They are focused on the deposit bonuses as their primary form of attracting to you to their brand. Here is an overview of the bonuses currently available on the website:

First Deposit Bonus

  • 100% up to €100 or 100 mBTC + 100 FREE SPINS
Make your first deposit in Golden Star Casino and get up to €100 or 100 mBTC and 100 free spins in the Lucky Sweets slot

Second Deposit Bonus

  • 75% up to €100 or 100 mBTC
Keep having fun! Make your second deposit, and we will refill your balance up to €100 or 100 mBTC.

Third Deposit Bonus

  • 50% up to €100 or 100 mBTC
More and more bonuses for you! Get up to €100 or 100 mBTC on third deposit!
The company does have one ongoing bonus for players who play on the weekend. They have a “Have A Nice Weekend” recurring bonus of 50% up to $50 or 50 mBTC.
Overall, it is pretty disappointing to see no leaderboard or jackpot promotions, especially given how many games they could use for these types of offers.

Tournaments

Golden Star Casino does have a large selection of tournaments running on a daily and weekly basis. For someone who gets bored with slots play pretty quickly, I enjoy the tournament concept; if I go on a long run, I can make some additional cash, and it is the only way I actually see any other screen names while I am at the casino.

Banking

As I have discussed many times in this review, the company seems to be very focused on making you a Bitcoin user, offering special games and bonuses for players who use the cryptocurrency. Golden Star does also have traditional payment methods available to its players; of course, each will be restricted by what countries are available. The most up-to-date payment methods for your country will be listed in the cashier section of the lobby after you login to your account.

Deposit Methods

  • MasterCard
  • Neteller
  • Visa
  • iDEAL
  • Sofortuberwaisung
  • QIWI
  • Trustly
  • Skrill
  • Yandex Money
  • Sberbank Online
  • Cubits
  • Comepay
  • Mobile Commerce

Withdrawal Methods

  • Bank Wire Transfer
  • Neteller
  • Visa
  • iDEAL
  • QIWI
  • Skrill
  • Trustly
  • Yandex Money
  • Cubits
  • Comepay
  • Evroset
  • Mobile Commerce
  • Sberbank

Comp/VIP Program

Golden Star Casino does offer its players a hybrid Comp/VIP program. In essence, this is a comp program that has tiers to it, giving you more enticing conversion rates for your comp points. While I am a big fan of casinos that give you comp points that you can cash in for real money, I am disappointed that there isn’t more to the VIP part of the program. I am hopeful that there is a more individual program that they just don’t advertise.
Here are the levels of the system and what conversion rates come with each level.
  • New Star – (0-149 CP) – no exchange
  • Bronze – (150-999 CP) – 14:1 Exchange
  • Silver – (1000-4999 CP) – 13:1 Exchange
  • Golden – (5000-14,999 CP) – 12:1 Exchange
  • Platinum – (15,000-29,999 CP) – 11:1 Exchange
  • Diamond – (30,000 CP) – 10:1 Exchange

Customer Service

Customer Service at Golden Star is available three ways: a web form on the Support page of their website, email or Live Chat. There is no phone number to reach the casino at this point; the only way to get a hold of them in real time is via the Live Chat function.

I worked hard for it: version 2.0 of LuckyNano is finally there. Come and check out a fun faucet for a change :)

Howdy ~♪
It's been a vague promise for a year now, life has been quite busy on my end but, yay, we've done it: LuckyNano 2.0 is a thing ! Do pay us a visit by clicking this link, peeps.
As always, I'm sure many of you don't know LN, so let me introduce you: LuckyNano started in January 2018, with the idea of creating a faucet to introduce people to Nano, but in a fun way. I felt really bummed that such an awesome currency as Nano would only be discovered through dull faucets, where all you do to get munie is clicking a button, every now and then. Worse, some only allow you to claim once, or at the cost of viewing ads.
I was a big fan of gamefaucet.com for Bitcoin (RIP), which let you play casino games in exchange of a few satoshi, with a big community component around it. People were enticed to chat and build a strong fanbase, and those who wanted to help the project would invest their own money to unlock perks and features.
This is *exactly* what I'm going for with LuckyNano: a faucet with casino-inspired games where you win NANO, but with a more modern design, and an enhanced multiplayer aspect. And those who are willing to try their luck for a quick buck, or simply want to help keep the project afloat can deposit a couple of NANO to play for higher stakes.
So ! On to what 2.0 has to offer:
Please try it, and share some love if you feel like it. :-)

‘Baby Al Capone’ Ellis Pinsky pulled off a $23.8 million crypto heist

In January 2018, a team of some half-dozen computer hackers — scattered across Europe and the United States — scammed their way into Michael Terpin’s cryptocurrency account, fleeced it and laundered the funds: some $23.8 million, according to a bombshell lawsuit.
Allegedly at the center of the heist was Westchester teen Ellis Pinsky. According to papers filed May 7 in Manhattan federal court, Pinsky is “an evil mastermind.” The suit asks for $71.4 million.
The wildest part? Ellis was just 15 years old at the time of the theft.
To neighbors and classmates at Irvington HS, he was an ordinary 10th-grader who ran track, played soccer, loved cool sneakers and got good grades. Ellis’ bedroom in the $1.3 million home he shared with his family, including his NYU Langone-physician mother, had three computer monitors for playing his favorite games, Counter-Strike and Call of Duty.
But according to an insider, there was at least one unusual thing about Ellis. As related in the complaint, he once allegedly wrote to an acquaintance, “I could buy you and all your family. I have 100 million dollars.” The complaint also alleges that an accomplice saw, in December 2017, “records indicating that Ellis had $70 million.”
Ellis and friends partying with champagne at Up&Down nightclub on 14th street.
Pals outside the heist apparently viewed Ellis as a virtual-money wunderkind. “His best friend thought he was making money through trading Bitcoin and stock,” the ­insider said.
But the complaint alleges that Ellis was the apparent ringleader in the scheme against Terpin, who is a pioneer in the world of cryptocurrency: “In his early teens, [Ellis] began hacking computers with the mission of accessing his victims’ private accounts where they store their cryptocurrency holdings or private information.”
Ellis’ attorney, Noam Biale, told The Post: “Ellis was a child at the time of the alleged conduct . . . It is deeply unfortunate that Mr. Terpin has chosen to bring [a] lawsuit, full of smears and baseless allegations, for no imaginable purpose other than spite.”
Video games were allegedly the teen’s gateway to crime. “Ellis is a gamer. That was his primary interest,” the insider said, adding that private video-game chatrooms — where Ellis was allegedly a regular — on platforms such as Discord and Skype are often full of people bragging about hacks. “From there he got interested in stealing cool usernames.”
Using a technique known as SIM-swapping, hackers remotely transfer a victim’s digital identity from the SIM card that controls the victim’s phone to a blank SIM card in one of the hackers’ phones. Sometimes this is done to steal a victim’s social-media identity, as “OG handles” — such as @A or @evil — can be sold for big bucks.
Ellis also allegedly used SIM-swapping to steal cryptocurrency. Going from nicking names to pulling off multimillion-dollar heists is not that much of a leap, the insider insists: “Once you are in somebody’s phone, stealing valuable names, taking their Bitcoin seems obvious. Plus, stealing crypto is impersonal. For kids who spend their whole lives staring at screens and playing games, it feels natural.”
According to Terpin’s attorney Pierce O’Donnell, Ellis and his crowd were always on the lookout for vulnerable marks. As alleged in the complaint, one of the teen’s collaborators, Nick Truglia, specialized in that task. Four years older than Ellis and a onetime finance/economics major at Baruch College, Truglia’s “assignments included . . . obtaining [a victim’s] cellphone and passcode numbers, conning the mobile-phone carrier into giving him or another imposter a new SIM card and then handing the scam off to [Ellis] to execute the hack,” the complaint states. Last year, Truglia was arrested and charged with another hack. He is currently out on bail. In a civil case, a default judgment was issued against him for the Terpin robbery and he was slapped by a California court with a record-setting $75.8 million judgment.
Nick Truglia (left) was found guilty on civil charges of stealing cryptocurrency from Michael Terpin (right) — a scheme allegedly led by Ellis Pinsky.
The case against Ellis alleges that the teen oversaw the hijacking of Terpin’s BlackBerry — which led to his digital vault, called a “native wallet,” where the $23.8 million was stashed. Forty-eight hours later, said Terpin, the thieves had laundered his virtual cash.
“Your phone goes dead and theirs is alive,” he told The Post last year. “Then they own you.”
As the alleged ringleader, Ellis apparently had a knack for organizing and bullying. “He would tell everyone what to do [during heists],” said the insider. “He bragged about [the Terpin robbery] being his job. He’s a very smart guy and a control freak. If you pissed him off, he would start texting you from weird numbers and threaten you. He’d call your parents and say weird things.”
One such alleged victim was a chat-room pal who lived nearby. According to a 2018 report that the 16-year-old pal filed with Eastchester, NY, police, Ellis “made threats to me about having me or my mom killed” after he accidentally let strangers into their chatroom.
Things apparently escalated when the pal was allegedly enlisted by Ellis to help launder the Terpin money and lost some $700,000 after he sent funds to the wrong person. Crypto being what it is, the funds could not be retrieved.
After the money went missing, the pal told police, “[Ellis] asked me to start getting him some money through selling drugs, shoes or in any way possible. He requested $3,000 to $4,000 a week.” It is unclear what, if any, action was taken by authorities.
**I could buy you and all your family. I have 100 million dollars.
– Ellis Pinsky, allegedly threatening an acquaintance**
It seems that Ellis was spending his money — converted from cryptocurrency to cash — to live a high life. As per a JetSmarter ­order form provided to The Post by a source who asked not to be named, Pinsky maintained an account with the private-air service. Additionally, according to the insider, he drove an Audi R8, scored great Rangers hockey seats and dressed in splashy Louis Vuitton and ­Supreme streetwear.
How a kid explains such conspicuous consumption to his parents remains something of a mystery. Said the insider: “I think he told his parents that he made Bitcoin online through video games and got lucky.”
The complaint maintains, “Whether [Ellis’] parents were recklessly negligent or worse in failing to monitor and control their wayward son remains to be seen.”
Ellis’ fly style helped the teen fit in when carousing with fellow hacker Truglia. A photo viewed by The Post shows ­Ellis at the nightclub Up & Down, brandishing an open bottle of Dom Pérignon while flanked by slinky young women. Still, the insider said, “He showed little interest in being at the club. After posing for pictures with bottles, he’d go outside.”
Even while he was spending, the insider added, Ellis kept an eye on his money.
“He had a designer wallet packed with $100 bills but he never liked to pay for anything,” the insider said. “He was an extreme miser. He anticipated retiring from crime after the Terpin heist.”
Apparently, he didn’t anticipate getting busted by his alleged victim. After Truglia’s 2019 arrest, Ellis allegedly text­ed a mutual friend: “[Truglia] is a dumbass . . . and got caught.”
##How Ellis Pinsky allegedly spent his stolen loot: ##
Things appear to have unraveled for Ellis during an investigation of the missing crypto. As Terpin attorney O’Donnell listened to recordings between collaborators in the crime, the teen’s name came up as a key participant. O’Donnell told The Post that he contacted Ellis’ mother at her office, and a lawyer returned the attorney’s call. Although Ellis did not admit to anything, he allegedly took unusual action.
Soon after, according to the complaint, “Pinsky . . . sent cryptocurrency, cash and a watch to [Terpin] without any condition . . . There was no other reason to repatriate these items — worth nearly $2 million at the time — other than to make a partial repayment of what he had stolen from Terpin.”
According to O’Donnell, among the items was a “Patek Philippe Nautilus [watch], worth over $100,000.”
As the civil suit hangs — O’Donnell and Terpin anticipate a response from Ellis’ attorney within the next 60 days or so — no criminal charges have been filed against the teen.
“I want to know why [prosecutors] have not indicted this kid,” said O’Donnell. “He is caught dead to rights.”
A Department of Justice spokesman would only say that “Ellis Pinsky has not been charged by this office.”
Terpin admitted to The Post that he waited until Ellis’ 18th birthday earlier this year to file suit against the teen as an adult. That way, Terpin said, “It will be easier to sue him [than it would be if he was a minor] and we’re intending to get treble damages” — repayment of three times the sum stolen. “These are crypto gangsters. My nickname . . . for [Ellis] is Baby Al Capone.’”
Ellis, apparently, is still living at his mother’s Irvington home, as a Post photographer spotted him there last week.
“Look at Ellis’ life and there is no reason for him to do what he did,” the insider said. “He’s a standout kid with a dark side.”

entitled family wants a pc for a 63d of the price

so this is my first post on reddit and i dont have English as my main languishe so im sorry for any spelling errors.
me= me
em= entiteld mom
cbc= choosy beggar child
ed= entitled dad
this happend not to long ago. So I run a business where i buy used and new computers and pc parts assemble them and sell them for a profit.
so a afternoon on one of my most stressful seasons a mom comes in and takes a look around. i still had four more customers in the shop at the time so i didn`t think much of it. then the mom comes up to me.
em -hi! I would like a full gaming setup for my son.
i usually ask my customers about all the parts beacuse I want to make the pc thats best for the things that they would use it for. and i am the maneger and only employe. lets continue!
me -hi! so what games would you like the setup be able to do and what is your budget?
em -well i want a setup for my son. he has been realy good in school so i want to make him happy!
me -ok do you know what kind of games he likes to play? i want it to be the best just for him.
em - ok i will get my son i will be back soon!
me -ok!
so it takes about an hour bfore they get back and its em, cbc and ed that comes in and at the moment noone was in the store eccept them.
me -Hi again!
cbc -I want a pc! Now mom!
em -sure cbc just give me a minute.
me -so what games are you looking to play cbc?
cbc - PUBG, Gta, CS GO, Minecraft and mine bitcoin
im not kidding cbc said mine bitcoin and cbc is like eight.

Sadly dont remember the other parts.
that will be 3150 dollars mam
ed - SO MUCH!?!
me -well your son wanted to mine bitcoin and play pubg on it so that would probably be the best for his needs but i could look something else up if you want?
em -do that right away!
me -so this wont be as good at mining bitcoin and at the graphicx but it will still be pretty good (specs gtx 1060 6gb, uppgrading package i3-8100 motherboard and case so just about 1750 with the accessories.

ed - comeon he got good grades and got first place in his swimming competition last week.
me - well i just bought a pc you can have for 50 bucks but it will not run any of the games that he requested and will not mine bitcoin.
em- please just make an exception. its not like you need the money anyway "points around the stores at all the pc,s and accessories all worth about 15k all together
me - you know that i still need to pay my rent and i accually don`t make that much. i just make about 3,5k a month.
em -Still just give us the pc.

cbc - AAAAHHHH!!!
em - WHY DID YOU DO THAT!?!?!?!
me - please return the pc to where it was NOW!
and em just throws it on the floor and ed starts to stomp on the parts inside. completly destroys everything that was inside. i almoast pass out when i saw the gtx 1080ti in half. i go to the back close the door and take out my cellphone to speak to the local police. after 5 minutes the cops are there and they get arrested for destroying private property robbery and not leaving the shop when i told them to leave. they had to pay the full amount for the pc that they broke . they still had the nerv to try and say that it was not that expensive, that it only was 50 bucks like what.
well i hoped you liked it and have a wonderful day!
PS i do not know totaly my currency to usd so it might change a bit and that SAS about 8months ago

Bitcoin/Shitcoin

Could you please comment with an educated guess about Bitcoin's next dip?
I have watched several Nouriel Roubini's videos, where he basically spits on cryptos, blockchain, shitcoins, and Bitcoin.
I have to say he speaks in an authoritarian way with a lot of confidence and what seems like anger but could be associated with allergy to a radically new socio-economical paradigm that Bitcoin and blockchain space could represent.
Although he is widely regarded as an "economy" guru etc... And I respect that; his whole character really bothers me because he is just a puppet that is here to alter the truth... So here is quick destruction of the beginning of his argumentation, I will remain extremely objective and will use external sources to answer his sometimes stupid assertion when any...

  1. NR: "We don't need blockchain, we don't need crypto!" - How bold, how limited! We might not need blockchain, but we need crypto-currencies... So we need blockchain. Bitcoin is too volatile? Then use a stable coin. Below is a pretty simple description of the pro's and cons of stable coins (source: https://www.quora.com/What-are-the-advantages-and-disadvantages-of-Stablecoins-compared-to-traditional-cryptocurrencies ):
Stablecoin has a ton of points of interest.
• The most critical is that these digital currencies enable their proprietors to be moderately tranquil for their benefits, exploiting all the positive parts of cryptoeconomy.
• In certainty, stablecoins can be considered as dollars, gold, oil, etc exchanged crypto exchanges. Normally, against the foundation of different coins that don't have such an incredible base, they are substantially more steady.
For instance, we will take Tether. 1 USDT dependably had an estimation of 1 U.S. dollar. Practically speaking the most extreme expense of USDT was $1,05, and least — $0,92. Be that as it may, there was it at the snapshots of solid variances of the cryptomarket and the negative occasions associated with the working of the cash, for example, breaking and robbery of benefits for the aggregate over $30 million which has occurred in the fall of 2017.
• During the most grounded fall of digital money showcase before the New Year, when numerous monetary standards dropped more than 30-70%, Tether again held out inside 8%. It isn't comprehended what will happen explicitly with USDT because of how designers respond to the occasions, however in itself guaranteeing the money with the dollar desires supported.
• In certainty, an amazing dollar stablecoin will enable us to utilize the USD on cryptoexchanges. Presently numerous trades don't bolster fiat, and those that help, generally speaking, require the client to pass confirmation.
The digital forms of money gave real qualities can be utilized in regular day to day existence, in little and medium business nearly without fears.
Blockchain innovation enables the holder to make sure that his money is truly furnished with an advantage.
Disadvantages of Stablecoin
Be that as it may, stablecoin has various disservices and they don't enable it to make a noteworthy challenge to driving digital forms of money:
• Stablecoin, in contrast to regular cryptographic forms of money, does not bode well to use as a venture resource. In the event that $ 100 stablecoins were purchased for $ 100, at that point in two years they will at present expense $ 100, paying little mind to what will happen to the dollar.
• Stablecoin, binded to a customary resource, ends up being reliant on it and on the customary money related structure, which involves dangers not found in regular cryptographic forms of money.
• Some clients aren't sure that the official to a customary financial framework can give a decentralizovannost, and to the proprietor — obscurity.
• Finally, if the digital currency speaks to a code which is recorded in the memory of the PC, at that point the customary resource frequently requests exceptional capacity conditions, assets for giving these conditions, etc.
As per Bitcoin: It is a speculative asset, not a currency that can be used to simply exchange value. In order for Bitcoin to become a currency, a country should make Bitcoin as its own national currency and should accept having no control over its own currency price fluctuation...
  1. "NR: I would say 99% of crypto-currencies are worth 0" - If you know well, just short them... Skin in the game...
  2. NR: "Why would I want to trust somebody in Russia or somebody in China to validate my transactions?" - Although we can not rationally explain this sentence, let's still suppose that all the Bitcoin transactions are validated by Russian and Chinese, as Nouriel seems to believe, then the reason are simple. a) It is faster b) It is cheaper c) It is safer d) It is 100% reliable d) It is more stable e) It is more transparent f) Ask former Lehman Brother's clients' why they might prefer using Bitcoin or other decentralized crypto currency...
  3. NR: "To me this entire space has been the mother and the father of all financial bubbles" Come on! We are just out of the 2008 financial crisis that wiped:

I mean, I could go on and on and on, but having someone so famous that really lies so much with impunity makes me sick.
And tired actually... So yeah...

Long live decentralized bitcoin(!) A reading list

Newbs might not know this, but bitcoin recently came out of an intense internal drama. Between July 2015 and August 2017 bitcoin was attacked by external forces who were hoping to destroy the very properties that made bitcoin valuable in the first place. This culminated in the creation of segwit and the UASF (user activated soft fork) movement. The UASF was successful, segwit was added to bitcoin and with that the anti-decentralization side left bitcoin altogether and created their own altcoin called bcash. Bitcoin's price was $2500, soon after segwit was activated the price doubled to $5000 and continued rising until a top of $20000 before correcting to where we are today.
During this drama, I took time away from writing open source code to help educate and argue on reddit, twitter and other social media. I came up with a reading list for quickly copypasting things. It may be interesting today for newbs or anyone who wants a history lesson on what exactly happened during those two years when bitcoin's very existence as a decentralized low-trust currency was questioned. Now the fight has essentially been won, I try not to comment on reddit that much anymore. There's nothing left to do except wait for Lightning and similar tech to become mature (or better yet, help code it and test it)
In this thread you can learn about block sizes, latency, decentralization, segwit, ASICBOOST, lightning network and all the other issues that were debated endlessly for over two years. So when someone tries to get you to invest in bcash, remind them of the time they supported Bitcoin Unlimited.
For more threads like this see UASF

Nick Szabo's blog post on what makes bitcoin so special http://unenumerated.blogspot.com/2017/02/money-blockchains-and-social-scalability.html
There is academic research showing that even small (2MB) increases to the blocksize results in drastic node dropoff counts due to the non-linear increase of RAM needed. http://bravenewcoin.com/assets/Whitepapers/block-size-1.1.1.pdf
Reddit summary of above link. In this table, you can see it estimates a 40% drop immediately in node count with a 2MB upgrade and a 50% over 6 months. At 4mb, it becomes 75% immediately and 80% over 6 months. At 8, it becomes 90% and 95%. https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/5qw2wa_future_led_by_bitcoin_unlimited_is_a/dd442pw/

Ultimate Guide To Drug Dealing

DISCLAIMER: As someone in their late teenage years, many of these mistakes have been made, and most of them have been learned from experience. This guide has been created to help educate anyone involved with drugs on how to best protect themselves against law enforcement, and to do this for a very, long time. However, despite this probably being the quickest and easiest method to generate money, the risk far outweighs the reward. You can put your family, friendships and personal life in jeopardy, and you will have to rely on too many stupid people not to get caught. If you or your friends don't mind that, then read this before you do:
General statements
-Keep business and personal life separate. This will depend on the anonymity of your business life. For example, keep your family separate by fabricating an alternate persona for your business life.
-Don't get high off your own supply. Consuming your own product may reduce any profits you make. For example, you buy a bag of product but inject it all in one day, now you don't have enough money to buy more needles and expand your business.
-Frequently test your product. Failure to do so in an unregulated business may eventually result in overdose, arrest and death. For example, you decide to sell a new batch of product your supplier has cut without reagent testing, and you are later arrested because your customer died of a fatal substance interaction.
-Invest and sell in bulk. Only invest in large quantities of product that have the highest profit margins and rate of purchase, while reducing the customer base to bulk buyers. For example, products bought in bulk such as benzodiazepines, cannabis, opiates and amphetamines will generate the most income.
-Trust no one. Don't engage in activities that require trust such as fronting people anything like money, or product. For example, if a junkie can't afford his addiction, don't fuel his debt.
-Loose lips sink ships. Unnecessary disclosure of sensitive information can be used as evidence against you. For example, your customers think it is okay to short change you because you've boasted to them about how many gucci belts you own and how much money you earn.
-Don't shit where you eat. Everything relating to your business should be dumped off your property or destroyed. For example, you should never be vulnerable if you get raided.
-Better safe than sorry. Never get comfortable, always analyse and improve your security. For example, imagine you are the prosecutor looking for holes in your defence in court.
-The aim of the game is to have no name. Make it known to your associates that you will not do business with anyone who discloses your name or any sensitive information. Cut everyone off who does, as this presents a major security issue for you. For example, if you have any unknown contacts for your business, then that is an indication you need to cut off one of your associates.
-Ignorance is bliss. The less you pretend to know about anything related to your business, the better. For example, intent to possess or sell product is usually required for law enforcement to charge you with an offence.
Transactions
-Only do business with virtually untraceable currency, such as cash or bitcoin. This will prevent law enforcement from using money as evidence for any purchase or sale of illicit products. For example, any cash that is seized by law enforcement requires evidence to determine if it is illegal money.
-Never let anyone know your property. This is because your property will link back to your personal life and compromise your anonymity. For example, no one should know where you live, what car you drive or firearm you possess.
-Never handover product first, without the handover of money. Customer could receive product without releasing funds. For example, you give a crack-head a bag of product and he runs away with it.
-Don't do business with anyone you don't know. A verification system must be used to qualify people as associates such as customers, suppliers or employees, where a person requires at least one successful transaction to be able to make direct purchases or sales, and people without verification should not be able to contact you. For example, you can be relatively certain that a potential customer is legitimate if they have made a successful transaction.
-Use third parties and dead-drops for high risk transactions. These techniques make it difficult for law enforcement to create links because they separate you from any transaction. For example, your middleman was able to retrieve your product because law enforcement did not have the resources to constantly surveil the dead-drop.
-Never come under control by other people's property. Doing so reduces the chance of you being able to escape a robbery or arrest. This includes things such as cars and houses. For example, you give money to a person inside his car in exchange for product, then he hands you a bag of dog biscuits and drives away.
-Dictate the location/time of every transaction. This reduces the chances of being robbed or arrested. For example, choosing a time closer to a transaction, and a location further away from a station would give less time for law enforcement to act.
-Keep all transactions public and discrete. This reduces your chances of getting robbed. For example, think of creative ways to make a transaction in public more appropriate and efficient.
-Don't use your vehicles for business. Vehicles have number plates which can be traced back to you through registration. For example, you can get pulled over and charged by law enforcement should there have been reasonable suspicion to search it.
Communication
Don't use unencrypted or any particularly insecure methods of communication. This includes anything that can be used to identify you with your business, such as mobile phone numbers, email services and social media. For example, you were arrested because your phone was tapped by law enforcement while under investigation, or you were caught selling product online when Facebook granted law enforcement access to your account.
-Force any encryption onto electronic communication between yourself and anyone related to your business. This includes customers, suppliers and employees. For example, you can use encrypted anonymity tools for communication such as Tor and Wickr to conduct business.
-It is best only with verified associates to discuss sensitive information in person. Using electronic communication in this case is more vulnerable than communicating face-to-face, given that you can't be certain of who is on the other side. For example, it is important to treat personal communication as a layer of security if you have reason to believe your electronic methods of communication have been compromised.
-Never leave any electronic device to hibernate while you are accessing sensitive information related to your business. Other people can retrieve your sensitive information from devices such as computers, phones, hardrives or tablets while you are not present. For example, a house mate gains access to your sensitive information because you left your laptop to hibernate while you went to the toilet.
-Use a logless VPN to change your IP address (physical location) to hide from your ISP (internet service provider) from your electronic devices when in use. This is so that your communications and browsing history cannot be linked with any of your business online. For example, accessing the same website through both business and personal ISP accounts without a VPN may link your personal internet traffic history to your business activity elsewhere, making you a potential suspect for law enforcement.
Evidence
-Don't store your entire stash on your property. Even if the stealth was so impeccable that you could not find its location yourself, drug dogs in a search warrant will.
-Keep all things related to packaging hidden and separate from product when not in use. This is so that they cannot be identified by law enforcement and linked with the sale of product. For example, written documents, clip seal bags, scales, mail, cutting agents, heat sealing devices and drug paraphernalia.
-Ensure product during processing is disposable at all times. You should be able to dispose of product in the process of packaging before law enforcement can get to it. For example, you flushed the product down a toilet or sink before police could seize it during a raid.
-Move stash frequently. Repeated visits to your stash creates a pattern which can be traced if you are under investigation by law enforcement. For example, the police followed you to your stash from home, planted cameras near your stash and acquired evidence for the stash being in your possession.
-Don't let anyone else apart from yourself know where your stash is located. Doing so will most likely result in a robbery, and it can also result in your arrest if that person became a police informant. For example, your stash goes missing, your employee gets arrested or robbed, unable to return funds or product, and snitched on you after having informed him where your stash was located.
-Wear gloves, hairnets and long cloths when handling business. Biometric evidence such as fingerprints, hair follicles and skin can be used to gather evidence for possession of product. For example, your fingerprints on that bag of product is evidence of you possessing it.
Destroy (wipe) all digital evidence after use. You can wipe hardrives clean with programs such as DBAN, and wipe any digital documents and photo metadata with software like Tails, and learn how to factory reset your mobile devices. Ideally, all digital information must be temporary, amnesic and self-destructing.
-Destroy (burn) all physical evidence after use. Do not dispose of evidence inside your property's garbage bins, as it is routine for law enforcement to search them. For example, if you dispose of evidence such as clip seal plastic bags and documents in your bins, it could be used against you as evidence after law enforcement have collected it during a search warrant.
-Regularly wipe electronic devices that may contain information related to your business. This is so that law enforcement can't use that evidence against you if they have a search warrant to seize and analyze your digital belongings.
-Build a team that live in the same property. Living with other people that work for you increases business availability, and ambiguity for the prosecution after a search warrant. For example, any product found requires evidence such as fingerprints to discover who exactly is in possession of it.
-Remove all physical and digital evidence from property if you believe you are under law enforcement investigation. You must take every precaution necessary so that law enforcement cannot find a shred of evidence of your illegal activity if they execute a search warrant. For example, the prosecutor couldn't press charges on you because they found no evidence to support their case.
Game over
-Don't talk to police. Anything you say can and will be used as evidence against you. Suppose you said everything right, talking to law enforcement is still a no win situation. For example, you could have said everything right in the police interrogation, but the prosecution can still claim that you weren't cooperative since you had essentially denied everything.
-Know your rights. State nothing except for your name, date of birth, and right to silence and an attorney when being interrogated by law enforcement. You will most likely incriminate yourself if you fail to do so. For example, police stopped questioning you when you exercised your right to silence and an attorney.
-You know nothing. Do not admit to knowing or remembering anything. For example, if law enforcement ask you if you remember anything about a package they found in your property during a search warrant, your defence can be a complete lack of knowledge and intent for such a claim.
-Play dumb. You don't know or understand anything about the law, the morality in breaking it or the likely risk of engaging in activities that do. The less culpable (guilty), and the more naive you are about the law, the better chance you have of winning in court. For example, defences such as mental insanity and impairment are successful when the defendant demonstrates that he does not understand the morality of the charges.
-Don't appear guilty. Become void of all body language as not to raise suspicion of your guilt. For example, defensive postures, eyes that stray left and right and feet that point toward the door are all signs of guilt that law enforcement will detect. Leave all emotions out of the process, especially guilt. For example, you confessed in an investigation room because you broke down after being told how many years in jail you're apparently going to serve, and that all further charges would be dropped if you confessed. Don't be that guy.
You're in trouble
-Don't talk to federal agents. Say nothing of substance; anything you do say can be falsified, editoralized or misinterpreted. Believe it or not, at this level law enforcement are willing to lie in order to convict you. For example, a federal agent tells you that you won't hear from them again if you cooperate with police, then you get a call later from a prosecutor detailing your court date.
-You are guilty until proven innocent. The investigation process is no longer about guilt or innocence. For example, federal agents at this level care more about catching you out on a lie than determining your innocence.
-Don't deny anything or behave surreptitiously. Anything you say is now open to further investigation. For example, federal agents opened up an investigation on your associates because you avoided sharing information about them.
-Always divert federal agents to your lawyer. Whether they are dropping their business cards on your car window, turning up to your front door, or in an interview with you, always have a lawyer to engage them on your behalf. For example, a federal agent threatens you with a grand jury-subpoena if you do not talk, you tell them to address your lawyer about it.
-Record any encounters you have with federal agents. The only advantage you have over them is relying on their ability to lie or make errors, since they are not legally allowed to record you, other than in their peer reviewed notes.

Bitcoin, dogecoin. How I tried to make my fortune in 2014 with the sweat of my computer.

Bitcoin, dogecoin. How I tried to make my fortune in 2014 with the sweat of my computer.

https://preview.redd.it/mv21lvsa3do31.jpg?width=1280&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=51bf5296a06eedc178079cf0b3ab4c3cfc44f271
Make money just by working on your computer: the rise of electronic currencies, in the wake of bitcoin, can be a little dream, especially in times of crisis. We tried the experiment. Wealth at your fingertips? Not for everybody.
Reading time: 6 min.
We have known at least since March 2013, with the soaring Bitcoin (BTC) price during the closing of Cypriot banks: electronic currencies, it has not much virtual. Since the creation of the enigmatic Satoshi Nakamoto serves as a safe haven, a playground for speculators, interests the States and even makes it possible to pay for his trip to the space where his beer, bigger world would dare to pretend that it only serves to buy prohibited substances on SilkRoad - if it ever was.
At the end of November, James Howells was mocked a lot, this Brit, caught in a household frenzy, inadvertently threw a hard disk containing 7,500 bitcoins, the equivalent of 4.8 million euros. A small fortune now lost in the depths of the Docksway dump near Newport. Nevertheless, before causing the consternation of the global Internet, Jamie still had the nose to undermine the BTC at a time when the experience mobilized a handful of hardcore geeks.
Since the rise (sawtooth) bitcoin, each unit currently weighs more than 800 dollars, nearly thirty cryptocurrencies have emerged. Is it possible, this year again, to let this promising, volatile and risky train pass, or to fall into
  1. Choose your electronic motto.
  2. All are based on the same principle: to summarize (very) big features [1], the issuance of money is governed by an algorithm, and the new corners put in circulation reward the resolution, by participants in a network of peer and mathematical problems, including the validation and archiving of transactions, which are public [2]. Mining a cryptocurrency is like putting the computing power of your computer in the service of the network.
  3. Since the program is decreasing [3], the mining becomes more and more difficult with time (and with the increase of the number of participants): to hope to make his pelote via the only computational activity, one must either have to at its disposal a large fleet of machines, to be a miner from the first hour. Exit the bitcoin, long since out of the reach of a personal computer.
  4. I similarly gave up the litecoin and peercoin, already well launched (they date respectively 2011 and 2012), to set my heart on one of the most recent currencies - and certainly the hippest of the moment: the dogecoin.
  5. As its name suggests, the cryptocurrency favorite Shiba Inus from around the world is a tribute to the Doge, one of the most famous memes of 2013, with its captions in Comic Sans, the font most sorry for the web. A geek joke, therefore, except that - the unfathomable mysteries of the Internet - its value jumped 900% in the third week of December, and she suffered a Christmas robbery online.
  6. Admittedly, at the time when these lines are written, the dogecoin caps at 0.00023 dollars [4] - its quite ridiculous (and quite depressing), but even if you bet on the future, so much to go frankly.
  7. 2. The hands in the engine the billboard.
  8. From there, things get tough (a little). Installing an electronic purse on ones computer is not very complicated (the software is available for Windows, MacOS, Android or, for the more adventurous, on a repository to compile under Linux). It is also possible to use an online wallet, but it is more risky (except, perhaps, when one is called James Howells). When opened for the first time, the purse automatically synchronizes with the Dogecoin network (be careful, it can be long), which gives you a payment address (we can generate more later).
  9. The two most common ways to undermine electronic money are to use the computing power of the computers microprocessor (CPU) or, more efficiently, that of the graphics card processor (GPU). In the first case, the program is simple to install; in the second, it is necessary to choose the most adapted to its material [5]. There are, thankfully, a lot of online tutorials. Still, to operate the corner board requires in all cases to trade the comfort of the GUI for aridity, so confusing to the layman, command lines - we have nothing for nothing.
  10. Finally, at work alone, we prefer collaboration. Mining is best done in groups, or rather in pool: it distributes the gains, of course, but also the difficulty. For the dogecoin as for all the crypto-currencies, the pools are numerous. A quick tour of a dedicated section of the Reddit community site can help you make your choice.
  11. 3. Extension of the field of struggle.
  12. And after? After, we can rest, since it is the machine that works. But the truth of a cryptocurrency - even at the exceptionally high LOL and LOL rates of the Shiba Inu - is cruel and brutal: not all computers are equal. Or rather, some are more equal than others. For while you heat your CPU or your graphics card to grapple some unfortunate corners, others will sweep the game thanks to specialized integrated circuits, computing capabilities much higher.
  13. If the game of buying and reselling corners is basically just another stock exchange mechanism, less the intervention of the central banks - what is at stake, and the big political question they ask: are we certain to prefer speculation pure and perfect to monetary policies, however questionable they may be? -, production, it is the law of the strongest (in calculation). There are even lethal weapons at $ 10,000 each, with which your processors are like mosquitoes in front of an A bomb.
  14. And if you think it does not matter because after all, it does not cost you anything, think again: the components, like humans, wear out faster when they work at full speed, and the bill of electricity can quickly grow. The profitability of the case is anything but certain, as evidenced by the results of online calculators. (Needless to say, our laughing dogecoin does not stand up to this kind of simulation.)
  15. Much more boring, from a collective point of view: the carbon footprint, current and above all expected, of electronic currencies worries more and more. Last spring, Bloomberg estimated that the energy consumption of the Bitcoin network was equivalent to that of 31,000 US households. Not sure, according to the site, that their emission is less damaging to the environment than have been some physical currencies.
  16. For exciting to analyze that is the emergence of cryptocurrencies, it is better to ask now about their cost, economic and ecological. To see it as a potential source of income, except for being a very early adopter with a hollow nose, an individual with a lot of computational capital or a clever trader, you have to make a point.
  17. If the recurrent comparison with the famous Ponzi pyramid [6] is discussed (after all, the decentralized currencies do not make promises), remains that, as long as the value does not collapse, the system benefits mainly to the first entrants - except James Howells.
  18. As the Bitcoin.fr site aptly states: all this is just an experiment, invest only the time and money you can afford to lose. LOLs love was not a worse reason than another to experiment, so I finally submitted my laptop to four days and three nights of intense activity, which makes me happy. owner of a good half a thousand dogecoins. Either the equivalent of 0.115 dollar, or 0.08 euro. It is obviously not worth the electricity consumed to generate them, it increases my carbon footprint, but it amuses my entourage. But laughter is, as everyone knows, a safe bet in times of crisis, less volatile than a real bitcoin.
  19. And then, after all, you never know.
  20. Amaelle Guiton.
  21. 1. For explanations more provided (the case is quite complex), refer, for example, to the series of very detailed notes devoted to blogger Turblog.
  22. 2. And as such, searchable by everyone. It is the identity of the users that is not known, unless they reveal it, hence the reputation of anonymity (relative, therefore) cryptocurrencies.
  23. 3. In the case of bitcoin, the maximum of 21 million units should be reached around 2140.
  24. 4. For a day-to-day follow-up, see the CoinMarketCap site which lists the exchange rates of crypto-currencies, based on the dollar value of bitcoin.
  25. 5. We discover then, unfortunately, that some graphics cards do not allow the mining. This is the case for the author of these lines, reduced to working in conditions of extreme computer deprivation.
  26. 6. Comparison which is at the heart of a hilarious note on the ponzicoin, signed by the economic journalist Matthew OBrien, on The Atlantic (to read if you intend seriously to invest in the dogecoin).

First of all, some interesting usernames: jjh1488, AutisticSubhuman1488, GasTheBlues, CausticAxion, xGenocideOnU, Perryvall_Causti, PenisPenisPenis1488
User theyreallinonit2 in The_Donald: We_Will_Destroy
We Will Destroy America Together
User realXstrawarot in honkler: i_will_shoot
Tucker lost his show at cnn after j. Stewart roasted his ass for 30 min. Tucker is a shitbucket that has the audacity to call himself a journalist. By allah if you call opinion pieces journalism, i will shoot myself right here.
User Haywood_Jablomie42 in KotakuInAction: should_be_killed
This. This isn't a matter of "two groups disagree", this is one group wanting to either murder or enslave the other group. You can't reconcile that. Never forget that they think we should be killed merely for disagreeing with them.
User TheCuckTriggerer in conspiracy: must_be_destroyed
I believe there will be War, but the war will be interrupted by something and everybody will stop fighting and go back home.
There's going to be massive solar flares that make the Carrington event look like a light bulb shorting out. Power grids will be wiped out and anything electronic will be rendered useless.
This event will cause more death and casualty than all the wars the world has ever waged combined.
And when Humanity is at its Darkest Hour a race of benevolent aliens is going to come and be our "Saviors".
They will uplift us spiritually, heal the planet, and bring us into a New Age of Enlightenment and peace and prosperity.
But ultimately at the end of the day I believe these beings will be the ones that were the architects of the solar flare to begin with. They believe to save Humanity, it first must be destroyed.
Though their intentions may be benevolent, I believe they should leave Humanity alone and let us figure things out by ourselves.
User lisasimpsonfan in GCdebatesQT: I_will_kill
I believe that trans people are entitled to the same basic rights as anyone else. They should be protected when it comes to access to housing, health care, and job protection. I don't hate or even dislike trans people.
I don't believe they deserve special privileges or treatment. I believe in science and science says mammals can't change biological sex. I am not going to humor someone by denying science just to make them feel better. Men can not become women no matter how much they want.
By saying 'if you don't agree with whatever I say it's violence or I will kill myself' is what abusive people say to manipulate other people. I don't play those games. Not agreeing someone can magically become a woman by putting on a dress isn't violence or killing anyone. it's common sense. And anyone who says they are going to kill themselves until you don't agree with them either needs to be evaluated by a medical professional or quit being abusive and manipulative.
The only provable violence I have seen is from trans women to gender critical women. "Kill all TRFS" and "PUNCH TRFS" while they walk around with weapons are the norm. Or memes where they threaten our lives with guns.
User kevlarut in The_Donald: should_be_killed
“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
“And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
User NissanRB25DET in chadfish: should_be_executed
There needs a bracket around all of them that says should be executed on sight, useless members of society (hypothetically of course)
User babababagahdh374672 in The_Donald: can_be_raped
Its a fake news liberal lie that unattractive women can be raped. It is not true or possible
User Rekot24 in The_Donald: must_be_destroyed
The Dems will make up some ridiculous bullshit to blame on Trump and the media will repeat it endlessly and ignore completely everything you just said. They have no shame. They are sold out to evil. There is no level they won't stoop to in order to win. There is no bargaining with this, the Democratic party must be destroyed.
User jaredschaffer27 in Drama: should_be_destroyed
Any website that allows /masstagger to exist should be destroyed
User Pajeet_My_Son in KotakuInAction: should_be_executed
I feel like as a poor white person that pays taxes, has a job and is putting them selves through school I should be executed for being white.
Yes. I deserve to be killed for being a normal person. I’ve never really done anything malicious to anyone but I deserve death none the less.
User Contempt4All in The_Donald: I_will_kill
Force my wife to have an abortion and I will kill every one involved included the judge.
I’ll be a hero.
User ThatGreyJediDude in The_Donald: we_should_kill
So because a kid could be brought in an unloving home or the oh so terrible foster care system we should kill them? Why stop at the arbitrary line of birth then?
User Bulbmin66 in WatchRedditDie: should_be_killed
I've literally never seen anyone in frenworld actually say that people should be killed. I used that sub quite often and knew all the subliminal messages, none of them implied actual killing. Chapo on the other hand advocates violence all the time.
User CharityStreamTA in WatchRedditDie: should_be_killed
Isn't their political stance that the holocaust didn't happen, that longnoses should be killed etc.
I mean TD is still up so it isn't an issue with them being right wing.
User royal_orleans in NickerNation: im_gonna_fucking_kill
im still not tired of winning!! hahaha....ha....
im gonna fucking kill myself
User Day_of_the_COPE in Drama: I_should_kill
Yes. I got him so upset he self reported saying I should kill myself and he was going to kill himself because he told me he couldn’t not respond and hoped drama gets banned. It was fucking hilarious.
He accused me of working your account, quietus(a mod) and I forget the others. Then another guy straight up accused me of being a paid foreign troll to come in and disrupted drama hahaha.
I have found that legitimately just telling people the truth fucks with them super hard. Because people who operate on pure projection don’t imagine I could be some totally normal guy who is telling the truth about why I was up all night etc. it’s 10X better than any ridiculous story.
User thanosisright188 in chadfish: I_will_kill
Insult my mom again and I will kill you
User goingplaces614 in metacanada: should_be_executed
There's nothing he can do. He has to cut, cut, cut or the fucking province is going to go bankrupt. The Ontario Liberals should be executed for what they did to the province's finances. I actually believe Ontario will never recover and will go bankrupt. There's almost no way out. Any premier who tries to fix it will get voted out and the Libs will just spend another 300 billion buying votes. Bankruptcy is guaranteed.
User WaltzRoommate in DebateAltRight: we_would_decimate
I suppose we would decimate their army, in the classical understanding of "decimate", which meant to reduce something to 90% of its original size. We are not that good at killing soldiers. We're great against buildings, but not against an actual military.
User Karwobra in The_Donald: I_would_kill
Standing down is tolerating it. Quite frankly, I would kill those 150 if it meant stopping Iranian hostility towards America. We can’t just back off, or they will keep up these minor attacks.
User Shigaraki_Handyman in MGTOW: I_would_kill
I don't understand American men. I would kill everyone who did this to me. Make it look like a robbery gone wrong for my wife and a revenge killing against the judge. They have lots of enemies. I would ensure I would get my kids back and never let her family see them again. Plus the Psychiatrist would have an unfortunate accident. It's not illegal, It's justice. And I would plan an alibi and make sure I would not get caught. These people deserve it.
User DonPedey in The_Donald: we_will_nuke
I think Ben is saying that we should use disproportionately more force to show that we can crush them. The problem a lot of people are seeing is that this leads to warmongering since every response is extreme.
“You place sanctions on us? Well, the US will bomb your military locations and kill hundreds of people. I know you won’t declare war since we have just shown you a glimpse of what is in store. By the way, take off the sanctions or we will nuke you next time.”
Proportionality is a major part of just war theory. I’m surprised Ben doesn’t understand that (or maybe he is ignoring it on purpose?)
User Ur_Glog in The_Donald: can_be_killed
Men can be killed, but and idea, an idea that people believe in is immortal.
User tigereyes121 in AgainstDomesticAbuse: I'm_going_to_kill I'm_going_to_kill
“This is a very important picture. I was at a domestic violence conference and all of a sudden I saw this woman, Millie Bianco, with a picture of her daughter, Lisa Bianco. Lisa was a very badly beaten woman. She took out a protection order and filed charges against her husband. He went to prison because the abuse was horrific. But he was always saying: ‘When l get out, I’m going to kill that fucking bitch. She put me in here; I’m going to kill her.’
“One day, the prison gave him a day furlough, with a car, to supposedly go and see his mother. Instead, he went to Lisa’s house. She had a beeper that would tell her when he came close, because he had to have a tag on his ankle. She was in the shower, the beeper went off, she went running out into the street naked. He was there with a sawn-off shotgun, and he beat her to death.
“He got the death penalty and was executed, but for the mother, that’s nothing. It’s like, the system let him kill her.”

The real problem with Bitcoin enthusiasts.

Keep in mind whilst reading this, I am one myself. But I feel like these things irk me a bit and make bitcoin folk look fanatical as opposed to forward thinking.
-Too many unrealistically cite that Bitcoin will take down big banking. This is not only laughable and unrealistic, but would take half a century to even begin to happen. It also makes one look like a loon to anyone willing to hear a pitch.
-Too often bitcoiners attach politics to why they like bitcoin. I do understand that it will probably take a few bold politicians to make bitcoin succeed as a currency, but this board often reads like a chain of ridiculous libertarian conspiracy threads.
-The great victories aren't celebrated as much as fear and panic. Square is a great victory, celebrate it. Understand that Bitcoin, the technology and startups and the acceptance of it as a currently in a toddler stage. Lay off the negatives, sit back, watch the infrastructure mount and enjoy it. We will either be a pack of "Itoldyousoers" or look like a colossal bushel of boners. Regardless, we're all along for the ride.
-Posting every article mentioning Bitcoin doesn't help perception of those that are new to the reddit. Post thoughtful, well researched ones. Coindesk is fantastic(and reputable) for insiders, but anyone beginning to embrace Bitcoin will not take it seriously. Also, posting articles that incite panic written by people that merely read the wikipedia about Bitcoin is foolish. Self edit, reddit.
-Be the forward thinkers that you are. A lot of people have money tied into Mt Gox. Hopefully, they will retrieve set money and all will be fine in the not too distant future. But understand that something that begins unregulated will attract bad people attempting to game a new system. As more responsive and reputable(hopefully US based) companies rise from the large amount of capital tied in, the insolvent or poorly run companies will fizz out quickly.
-Warren Buffet is entitled to his opinion. He's one of the greatest investors that's ever lived, but doesn't care for tech stocks or Bitcoin. It's not that it frightens him, he just doesn't understand it in terms of guaranteed profit. Many feel this way at the moment, which is why the market cap has dropped a bit as of recently. Even the bulls are looking like bears. Lay off the guy, he has a different opinion than you or I do.
-Have a better understanding off mass adoption. A few ATMs are a good start, but until someone who has never owned a bitcoin can go on his/her phone/computeor atm and acquire one in less than a minute, it won't happen. The atms will hopefully get better and easier to use with time, but the tech surrounding bitcoin needs to improve a great deal before everyone you know embraces it. Try telling someone they have to sign up to a site, confirm their bank, identity and wait for 5 days while they have their debit card in their hand and see which form of payment they choose. We'll get there and I believe in(a few of) the startups popping up, but we're not there yet. When every store has a btc qr code scanner as an option, we've made it.
-After trying to explain how it works, explain how useful it could be for migrant workers. Explain how Western Union and their robberies could be quieted by Bitcoin. It may not sell people on purchasing one or getting into it, but it expresses the nature of bitcoin and the freedom it brings. It's a great way of making folks understand.
-Be patient.
I wrote this with positive intentions.
Update: Really enjoying reading all the posts and debates on here. All healthy and none hateful.

Beware, one or more of the moderators of Dashpay have been

"To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize." - Voltaire
Edit: This morning the moderators of cryptotechnology also shadow deleted and banned me for the same thread highlighting Monero's 51% attack vulnerability! They control many subs and moderator positions! I'm probably going to start posting more on memo.cash and honest.cash now.
Which means that the moderators of dashpay have been compromised. If we're not allowed to criticize people who fud our coin, and if they're allowed to abuse the very rules that were created (mostly based on my fights with XMR trolls and how they were attempting to infiltrate with negativity instead of 'kindness'), then that is a clear signal that the moderators now serve the monero community.
Fortunately, I was banned today from dashpay. I will post the PMs and explain what I think this means for the communtiy.
I received this message today:
I have hidden your post.
5時間前 solarguy2003 から送信
You can't call people liars. We talked about this, please revise your post where you are talking to flenst and told him he is lying less, etc.
Now off the bat, its unusual to receive a warning like this via pm, with no link to the offending post. That's the first thing. The second thing is he's lying. In our discussion we 'didn't talk about this', this user is a MODERATOR he is not stalin. He does not have the power to control free speech nor to selectively interpret the rules, just like a baseball umpire can't turn a strikeout into a home run on his whim. Its his job to make sure the rules are followed, not to throw his weight around. If someone is lying and its proven they are lying then THEY are the aggressor, not the person calling them out.
He had no response for this then nor does he now. Why not? Because this is an attack on the dash community. I am the canary in the coal mine. This is our 'Mike Hearn' moment. Mark this post, in a year come back and see the chaos that has or has not been allowed to fester and grow in our otherwise placid and strong community.
I of course do not pretend to have contributed even 10% of what he did. Only that his message of frustration was the same kind of signal that censorship and manipulation were taking over the community. But unlike his message, this is a bullish message. The Monero coin is undergoing severe strain from the mining situation.
Just like in bitcoin this user flenst, a known member of the very aggressive and hostile monero community who has fudded our coin for over two years, sought to infiltrate and curry favor with our community. He most likely bribed or threatened the mods. I do not make this accusation lightly, I have been harassed by them online for months so I know what I'm talking about. They impersonated me with sockpuppets and followed me around on reddit in a form of online stalking.
From the beginning I recognized his game, use the rules to silence voices that they did not want heard. Today he has struck the first blow.

Calling liars liars IS NOT AGAINST THE rules of the Dash subreddit! If you're lying you are trying to mislead people THAT IS AGGRESSIVE. It doesn't matter how nicely you do it, if you stab someone apologizing profusely as they bleed out it is NOT the same thing as not stabbing them in the first place. What does this mean? It means you have to be careful now. There are 'protected classes' whom 'you are not allowed to criticize' now. I was BANNED for calling flenst a liar.
I have been a member of the Dash community for years, I have fought tirelessly to defeat trolls like and including flenst, and yet he joins our subreddit for a couple of weeks and he has moderator protection now? Banning people for calling him out and not playing along with his pretend-friend game?! This is VERY bullish for Dash!! This the best they can do! They can't even defeat someone who's not on the core team in argument, they have to resort to lies and censorship.
Stay vigilant, stay frosty, because the monero community must be desperate to pull such a brazen move as this! Bank robbery in broad daylight!

The BREAKING of the NEWS

“In view of the research finding that the North Korea nuclear test site at Mantapsan has collapsed, it is necessary to continue to monitor any leakage of radioactive materials that may have been caused by the collapse,”
A large part of North Korea’s underground nuclear test facility is unusable due to the collapse of a cavity inside the mountain after the latest test-detonation occurred
and:
Soon after the sixth and largest blast last September, satellite images suggested that one part of the site, a 7,200 foot granite peak called Mount Mantap had diminished in height

Youtube 419 scam: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9uMGUDOgukQ (not this channel, but Youtube's machinations)
If you've got Time on your hands, read the first comment at the link I posted above, again:
Now there are two studies, both by groups of respected seismologists. One finds that one of the "aftershocks" was in fact the collapse of the cavity created by the explosion. @JNBPage -- again, who wrote the only non-garbage story so far -- quotes the key bit. 3/8

  • "AAA: seismologists" = 1776 trigonal (I've posted about this numbedate a few times very recently)
  • "AAA: seismologists" = 321 bacon
This spelling is an obfuscation, however:
  • "size-mologists" = 188 = "Bavarian Illuminati"
  • "size-mologists" = 188 = "Alphabet Conspiracy"
quotes the key bit
...and 'S' is special:
"aftershock" = 106 = "magic number" = 106 = "the number" = 106 = "prophecy"

A tip: if you see some bolded words in a comment or news article, add the word "bold" to the spell:

As mentioned above: "Water" = "Dark Magic" = "The One" (ie. 67, which reduced to 13)

Jeffrey Lewis thinks this whole thing is overblown:
No, North Korea’s nuclear test mountain did not collapse. (A note in place of the short thread I will write after I drop my children at school.)

You heard the man, fellow Abjurers, go root out the remaining tunnel rats... (warning: they're gross)
You heard the man, fellow Abjurers, go root out the remaining cyphers ... (he is implying more keys remain to be found)

A comment on the NK test site collapse: https://www.reddit.com/worldnews/comments/8evmqm/north_korea_isnt_closing_its_nuclear_test_site_it/dxytc0v/
If the mountain collapsed nuclear fallout would spread all over the Asian.
Grammatically awkward right? (ie. Orc-ward)
  • "nuclear fallout" = 161 (ie. golden ratio)
"The Asian(s)" does not mean what you think it does...

Two very plausible explanations for their site closure spring to mind, in addition to "it's ruined":
1) They're lying and the site is not closed. Lying and doing the exact opposite of what they promised to do is literally their MO
2) They proved their design works so there's no point wasting more fuel repeating the test
Both of those are equally as likely as that the site has been completely destroyed. And a whole lot more likely than "and all the scientists and production facilities that were right there in the tunnel where the bomb was about to go off were destroyed as well!"
  • "it's ruined" = 119 = "master plan"
Another face of the same story? (Keep in mind the Nigerian Scam stuff listed above: 419 = 911):

From the wired article, linked above:

He waited for the questions, and for the next two hours, there were plenty of them. The word risk came up. The most dramatic comment came from computer science professor and cryptographer Eran Tromer. With the flair of Hercule Poirot revealing the murderer, he announced that he’d discovered a weakness. He spun a wild scenario involving a stolen phone, a second hacked phone, and a bank robbery. Ozzie conceded that Tromer found a flaw, but not one that couldn’t be fixed.
At the end of the meeting, Ozzie felt he’d gotten some good feedback. He might not have changed anyone’s position, but he also knew that unlocking minds can be harder than unlocking an encrypted iPhone...
chuckle
...Still, he’d taken another baby step in what is now a two-years-and-counting quest.
