Summary of Tau-Chain Monthly Video Update - July 2020

Karim
Agoras Live: Five functionalities complete: 1. Registration 2. Login 3. User Profile Page 4. Calendar 5. Categories List 6. Wallet Screen Payments: Decided that implementing lightning would be too complex. Instead, we decided to implement our own micropayment mechanism using the native BTC multisig addresses. We are going to use the Omni wallet for payments. TML: Continued debugging, getting a TML demo and test cases ready. Hiring: More hiring efforts to increase team size. Timelines: Committing ourselves to a release of Agoras Live and a basic version of discussions in TML in 2020.
Umar: Been working on making improvements to the context free grammar parsing. We now are able to add constraints to productions in the grammar, allowing us to recognize grammars that are context sensitive. Developed test cases for that, too.
Tomas: Fixed issues in TML and ran several steps in a TML program. Now adding more tests to make sure everything is stable and won’t break. Also been working on a TML tutorial, a recorded script based on the intro to TML which was contained in the TML Playground. Also new features are going to be covered such as arithmetics.
Kilian: More outreach & follow-ups to potential partner universities. Positive response by a professor based in Toronto, presented to him our project. Also, response by KULeuven, Belgium, who unfortunately don’t see a good fit in our project. We’ve had one applicant for the IDNI Grant program and currently are evaluating his proposal. Also, we’ve had an applicant from Bangalore, India for the IDNI Ambassador program and we also have been discussing his proposal. Translation Bounties: We’ve had the blog post “The New Tau” translated to Chinese and have been reviewing the translation. We are going to publish the translation on our website and on the Bitcointalk Chinese forum section. Still to be claimed: German translation of “The New Tau”. Done more effort on reach out to potential tribe channels: Research groups, LinkedIn groups, Facebook groups. Most represented keywords: Complex Adaptive Systems, NLP, Computational Linguistics. Usual feedback: Likes but no further interaction. Created an FAQ answering all possible questions surrounding IDNI, Tau & Agoras Idea: Hosting a virtual panel to spread the word about our project among the scientific community, as well as to create some visual content for our community. Two professors are interested in participating, one from Argentina with a focus in semantic parsing, the other one from the University of Washington with a focus on human-computer interaction and social computing. First step: organizing a pre-panel discussion where in 1on1 calls with the professors we get an opinion of them about what we are doing.
Andrei: Agoras Live: Implemented mail system so users now get their mails (e.g. registration email). Improved UX together with Mo’az, e.g. user profiles. Token creation for accessing calls to identify and charge users. Customized Jitsi interface to suit our needs: E.g. display of how much time passed in a call and how much it costs. Next up: Further improve UX; make sure everything works as intended.
Mo’az: Almost finished the IDNI website. Added two more pages: Events & Bounties in collaboration with Fola & Kilian. Agoras Live: Finetuned all the website’s components in collaboration with Andrei.
Juan: Continued working on the payments system for Agoras Live. Had some delays due to the complexity of debugging such applications. Still, we made significant progress and got the funding transactions implemented over the Lightning network through the Omni layer. Spent time analyzing the minimum amount of BTC to pay for the fees associated to the Omni transactions. We aren’t using segregated witness native addresses and instead are using embedded segregated witness. So transaction sizes are enlarged and transaction fees are a bit higher. So there is a bit of finetuning analysis needed in order to enable the multisig address to pay for the closing & refund transactions. So to provide payment channels over the Omni layer, the main remaining technical detail we have to solve at this point is the closing transaction & the refund transaction.
Fola: Have been continuing to look for great talent in different areas. Continued working on website with Mo’az and Kilian. Been working on the branding for Tau & Agoras. Been getting external support to make sure the branding for Tau & Agoras will be as professional as it can be. Working on marketing efforts needed for the release of Agoras Live to get the media pack for marketing ready. Working together with external people to put a plan together for listing the Agoras token on more prominent exchanges as we get closer to release of Agoras Live.
Ohad: Continued working on restricted versions of second-order logic to understand how to implement them. There is a translation in the literature about how to convert second-order logic by Horn into Datalog. Also, I have been revisiting papers that deal with descriptive complexity of higher-order logic. They mention that they have a translation from second-order logic to QBF. I wasn’t able to find where they explain this translation but I wrote one of them and he said he will send me the paper. If so, that will be very good because we already have a QBF solver. Any binary decision diagram is already a QBF solver, so we can just translate arbitrary second-order logic formulas into QBF. This will be very helpful for us to implement second-order logic. Also, those papers mention several aspects that are relevant for self-interpretation, the laws of laws. Apparently, they suggest that certain fragments of higher-order logic may also support the laws of laws. But this is part of the papers that I didn’t have access to, so I have to wait to get further clarification. I also pushed the whitepaper significantly this month and hope we will be finishing it soon. Also, I was thinking about some optimizations for the parser and also was looking into the Lightning network. It was my mistake that I haven’t done so beforehand and if I had done it beforehand, I would have understood earlier, that Lightning is too much. It is too drastic of a change to how traditional payments work and there apparently is no reason to believe that it is secure. So I’m glad I discovered better now than later that it’s not something we’d like to rely on, although we can have it as an optional feature.
Q&A:
Q: With the project development taking longer than other projects such as Tezos, when can AGRS holders expect something to be released and, how can you reassure us that we made the right decision?
A: With regards to when we see some releases, it seems that we will see some releases in 2020. For comparing to Ethereum and Tezos: Let’s first talk about funding. Both projects had a lot of money. For Ethereum, the reason for is that it has probably done one of the most aggressive marketing campaigns in history. It was completely lacking any kind of honesty. It was simply aggressive. None of Ethereum’s visions and promises became true. It simply became an insecure platform for scams. None of their vision of creating a world computer, of creating a better society, a better currency, became true. Because of this aggressive marketing, they not only raised a lot of money, they also took the price to be so high in the market. If you remember the campaign of the flipping, they did a whole campaign on how they would overtake the marketcap of Bitcoin. For Tezos, they made maybe the largest ICO in history in terms of money, mainly because they came at the right time, at the top of the bubble in 2017, and also their promises for better coordination didn’t come true. Their solution is based on voting and based on Turing completeness and the only reason why they managed to gain such a market cap as of today, is not because they offer better currency, better society, better anything. It basically is a Ponzi-scheme because they offer very high interest rate by very high inflation (5,51%). The only reason why people buy Tezos is to get into this Ponzi-scheme. Because both Tezos and Ethereum lack any true economical or technological substance, their value will not sustain and this is true for almost all projects in the cryptocurrency world. In the software, high-tech market, if you come up with good tech and you do all the right things, you succeed big time. But if you don’t have it and you are purely relying on brainwashing people, it will not sustain. Of course, our solution is so disruptive and sustainable. We offer to do advancements for humanity and for economy.
Q: What three subjects would you first like to see discussed on Tau?
A: Of course, picking three subjects now is a bit speculative, but the first thing that comes to mind is the definitions of what good and bad means and what better and worse means. The second subject is the governance model over Tau. The third one is the specification of Tau itself and how to make it grow and evolve even more to suit wider audiences. The whole point of Tau is people collaborating in order to define Tau itself and to improve it over time, so it will improve up to infinity. This is the main thing, especially initially, that the Tau developers (or rather users) advance the platform more and more.
Q: What is stopping programmers using TML right now? If nothing, what is your opinion on why they aren’t?
A: There is nothing essentially missing in TML in order to let it release. And in fact, we are now working towards packaging it and bringing it towards a release level. For things like documentation, bug fixes, minor features, minor optimizations. We indeed actively work towards releasing TML 1.0 and then we can publish it in e.g. developers channels for them to use it.

What is HYIP? Experience investing in HYIP


Hello newbie! Today, I will write some introduction about HYIP, this is the first article on my blog, it’s basic knowledge, anyone has joined some HYIP or investment program online will know about HYIP, but I want to leave this article to you — Beginner.
I hope this article will helpful have some basic knowledge about HYIP industry to win and get receive profit, let start and make money online with HYIP.

What is HYIP?

A high-yield investment program, also known as HYIP, which covers all programs, offline and online, that are used to invest money to receive a higher yield than you would normally get at a bank, from 5% to as much as 250% per month making it the top investment program. HYIPs accept investments that are as small as 10 USD and claims that they can provide high interest rates.
To generate a high return, HYIPs often involve investors’ money put into high-risk ventures, such as day-trading stocks or bonds, or sports betting. A Bitcoin HYIP can work the same, except with Bitcoin or another crypto as the investment currency

How do HIYPs work?

Starting off with an HYIP online is simple, since all you have to do is register with them and then deposit some money into your HYIP account using the payment processor that they outline. The profits are paid out to the same processor to streamline the process.
All transactions of HYIPs are done over the internet.
HYIPs use E- Currency in their transactions because it offers the most convenient payment system. E- Currency suits best HYIPs because it has a feature that allows easy withdrawal of money making it a good option for completing online transactions. Moreover, E- Currency is accepted all over the globe. Another factor that addresses the need of HYIP investors.

What do HYIPs do to make a profit?

The main sources of incomes in HYIP Programs are:
However, very few HYIP projects use Investor’s money to use real business as I listed above. Instead, they use the latter’s money to pay the previous person (Ponzi model), using funds to pay for marketing activities to expand the popularity of the project, attracting participants.
If you want to grow your HYIP business online then you need the most trustworthy HYIP website first. And the best quality HYIP template can give the real taste. 'Besthyiptemplate' is the most suitable place for HYIP template design and scripts. Our template design is the most helpful and high-quality product among all templates.

Bitcoin Is Fun Again!

Isn't this all exciting? Hash wars, troll wars, price wars. Finally things are happening. Makes for a welcome change from boring stability and waiting on the fiat system to collapse.
I remember when bitcoin had the suicide hotline as its top sticky post. I remember when the price ran up 10% per day for weeks at a time and then crashed in one day due to a massive crypto ponzi scheme. I remember lots of exciting businesses and technical ideas being discussed and created constantly. I remember the mystique of the dark web and wikileaks (what brought me to bitcoin) wrecking havoc on the establishment around the world.
It feels like this is all coming back. I don't know why but I love it. Hollywood couldn't script it any better. I'll see those of you who make it on the other side.

Gerald Cotten, aka Sceptre

Gerald Cotten, aka Sceptre
Using a variety of OSINT tools and research, we're going to demonstrate the chain of evidence confirming that Gerald Cotten, QuadrigaCX CEO, was also known as "Sceptre" online.

Let's start with the gerryenterprises.com name servers. Gerryenterprises.com was a domain registered by Cotten and used for custom name servers for a variety of domains. Using your own name servers instead of relatively inexpensive and powerful 3rd-party options (such as Cloudflare, which QuadrigaCX used) suggests you have other motives in mind, and perhaps obscuring or obfuscating logs attached to your domain/s were amongst them.

Using Domain Research Suite (paid sub required) we can trace all domains that ever used ns1.gerryenterprises.com as a name server. You can verify this for yourself.

https://preview.redd.it/xfsf1fk98xt21.png?width=2100&format=png&auto=webp&s=2a555e9ae07081269e5a5c9791e3a3fdd481e2ae
This search turns up a number of interesting domains, and one in particular - the "contentbysceptre.com" domain, which we can link to a post on BlackHatWorld, along with other data points from other domain research.

Let's have a closer look at some of those domains:

https://preview.redd.it/uavml56y8xt21.png?width=2100&format=png&auto=webp&s=b37d9dad06bd11f1af3f0e4d8c5ec8a545c2c572
OK, so they have all clearly been registered to Gerald Cotten.

Let's take a closer look at the BlackHatWorld posts and profile:
https://preview.redd.it/8wuhj4s29xt21.png?width=2100&format=png&auto=webp&s=9a84e85f4ef9b395453485d2bc5fce385b1fd4cd

From this we can deduce the following:

  1. Cotten registered and ran the gerryenterprises.com name servers, both for his own domains and a number of friends and associateds, such as:
    1. Patryn (vfs-securities.com, michaelpatryn.com)
    2. Christine Lako, his ex-girlfriend (schnugglebunny.com)
    3. Nicky Correa, his friend (nickycorrea.com, studioimpression.com)
  2. He also ran a number of his own domains through this server, such as:
    1. Allergictocorn.com
    2. Barbara-corcoran.com
    3. Canadian-airport-guide.com
    4. Cooltripbro.com
    5. Hide-your-ip.org
    6. Howdoihidemyip.com
    7. Etc. and many others
  3. From other research and domain analysis, we know Cotten had a number of “Sceptre” email addresses, including
    1. [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])
    2. [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])
    3. [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])
    4. [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])
  4. These email addresses were used on domain registrations, forums, payment processors, and a variety of services linking back to Gerald Cotten (more on this later)
  5. Given the preponderance of inexpensive, cheap and more powerful options for name servers (such as Cloudflare, which was used by QuadrigaCX), and Cotten’s preoccupation with security, using proxy services and hiding his IP we can assume this would have been primarily for security reasons
  6. Cotten used the “contentbysceptre.com” domain in connection with his “Sceptre’s Spectacular Content Services” on BlackHatWorld
  7. Cotten posted an advertisement on Blackhatworld for a programmer for a “Website like Bitstamp”, which was just a few months prior to launching QuadrigaCX in December 2013. It’s a short timeframe but we know it fits because QuadrigaCX uses the generic WLOX exchange script, which dramatically reduces the work required to build a crypto exchange (Note: we didn’t say a great crypto exchange). This is mentioned in a post on coinforum.ca where user @yerofeyev admits that another exchange, Taurs (founded with PATRYN, mentioned earlier) uses Quadriga code based on WLOX. Strangely that thread is no longer accessible (https://coinforum.ca/discussion/2448/taurs-soft-launch) as the whole coinforum.ca website has been mysteriously shut down in the last few days
  8. Cotten posted a number of threads asking for advice on how to monetise his network of sites, includijg the aforementioned proxy sites, and his celebrity news sites, including celebritydaily.net. Here’s the link to that post as well “BHW - Hiring Celebrity Article Writer”
  9. Cotten’s profile on BlackHatWorld was initially Sceptre and later changed to “Murodch1337” , perhaps after QuadrigaCX began to become popular and he realised he might need to conceal links to his past. Link to Cottens BlackHatWorld profile here: https://www.blackhatworld.com/members/murdoch1337.273596/
  10. Patryn was also active on BlackHatWorld, and posted to the following thread “10K budget need suggestions on passive income streams - help”, suggesting “HYIPs are investment scams promising returns of 5-20% weekly, generally.” You can view that thread here: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/10k-budget-need-suggestions-on-passive-income-streams-help.548790/page-4
  11. We know form other research and analysis that both Sceptre and Patryn were highly active in the HYIP/Ponzi/exchanger space (more on this later)
  12. In conclusion, we believe that Gerald Cotten, QuadrigaCX CEO, was known as "Sceptre" on BlackHatWorld and other sites.

This has been a QCXINT release. If you have more information regarding QuadrigaCX, Michael Patryn (aka Omar Patryn, Omar Dhanini, Voleur), Gerald Cotten (aka Sceptre), please send to [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) . Your submission will be 100% confidential.

Update 23/04: Reddit dropped the entire post whilst editing so it had to be re-uploaded.
  1. Added link to Freelancer post by Cotten: https://www.freelancer.com/projects/bitcoin-related-project/ showing his skype (gerrywc) and "Sceptre" email ([[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]))
  2. There is also a crosspost for the "Bitstamp clone" BHW post here: https://www.freelancer.com/projects/PHP-Website-Design/Bitstamp-Clone-Bitcoin-Trading-Platform/ using exactly the same text.
  3. This further confirms that Gerald Cotten was the poster on Freelancer (as he includes his Skype and email address) and Sceptre/Murdoch1337 on BlackHatWorld

HYIP là gì?

HYIP là gì?
Bạn đang thắc mắc HYIP là gì? HYIP viết tắt của cụm từ “High Yield Investment Programs“, có nghĩa là các chương trình đầu tư siêu lợi nhuận.
Có nghĩa là sao?
Thông thường các chương trình này đem lại lợi nhuận cực hấp dẫn (từ 10% – 60% mỗi tháng) và cao hơn rất nhiều so với bạn gửi tiền vào tài khoản ngân hàng (3% – 8% hàng năm tùy khu vực). Các quỹ đầu tư siêu lợi nhuận thường hoạt động online và đăng kí dưới hình thức công ty, quỹ đầu tư hay tổ chức tài chính,…

https://preview.redd.it/6q40okh84no31.png?width=640&format=png&auto=webp&s=791a1f54fffdf49b5531061cc6b115a33e458c61
Để hiểu cụ thể HYIP là gì? Hãy cùng blog tìm hiểu trong các phần bên dưới đây.

HYIP là gì – HYIP có rủi ro không?

Trên thực tế như bạn đã biết, khi đem tiền đi đầu tư là sẽ có rủi ro và lợi nhuận càng lớn thì rủi ro đi kèm càng cao. Trong lĩnh vực đầu tư HYIP cũng không phải ngoại lệ, thậm chí bạn có thể mất trắng toàn bộ số tiền đầu tư của mình mà bạn không thể đòi được hay kiện được bất cứ một ai. Trong hầu hết các trường hợp, khi tham gia đầu tư HYIP, bạn sẽ thường nhận được những đảm bảo và lời hứa chắc chắn từ Admin dự án.

Họ dùng tiền của Nhà đầu tư làm gì để sinh lời?

Chủ dự án sẽ quản lý và phân bổ nguồn quỹ của NĐT theo nhiều hướng khác nhau như : trade coin, trade forex (kinh doanh ngoại hối), trade stock (kinh doanh chứng khoán), mở trang trại khai thác coin, đầu tư vào các HYIP khác, kinh doanh nhượng quyền, mua bán trên mạng, mua bán cổ vật,…. và nhiều phương pháp khác để tạo ra lợi nhuận chi trả cho NĐT.
Bên cạnh những HYIP dài hạn có sử dụng quỹ NĐT mang đi đầu tư, kinh doanh thực sự thì một số HYIP hoặc cũng có thể nói là đa phần các HYIP ngắn hạn hoạt động dựa trên mô hình Ponzi (kim tự tháp), họ không tạo ra bất kì một hoạt động kinh doanh nào để đem lại lợi nhuận cho NĐT mà chỉ đơn thuần lấy tiền của người sau trả cho người trước, dùng quỹ chi trả cho các hoạt động marketing để mở rộng sự phổ biến của dự án, thu hút người tham gia. Vì vậy, trong đầu tư HYIP yếu tố về mặt thời gian (đầu tư sớm hay muộn) vô cùng quan trọng.
Tìm hiểu series dành cho người mới nhập môn đầu tư HYIP

Điểm khác biệt của đầu tư HYIP trực tuyến (online) là gì?

So với đầu tư HYIP offline thì đầu tư HYIP trực tuyến (online) có rất nhiều điểm khác biệt như:
+ Yêu cầu số tiền đầu tư tối thiểu (min deposit) rất thấp, có thể là khoảng 10 USD hoặc thấp hơn.
+ Chi trả lợi nhuận rất nhanh cho NĐT theo tuần, theo ngày thậm chí là theo giờ.
+ Gần như là 99% các chương trình đầu tư HYIP bạn sẽ không nhận được những thông tin thật sự về chủ sở hữu.
+ Họ luôn hứa sẽ đảm bảo lợi nhuận cho bạn trong mọi thời điểm.
+ Chỉ chấp nhận dùng các loại tiền điện tử: Perfect Money, Payeer, Advcash, Bitcoin, Ethereum,….

HYIP là gì – Có nên đầu tư?

Câu trả lời phụ thuộc vào ý kiến cá nhân của bạn sau khi tham khảo qua bài viết này và cá nhân bạn có dám chấp nhận mạo hiểm được hay không?

Cần chuẩn bị những gì để tham gia HYIP?

+ Email cá nhân.
+ Ví điện tử: Xem hướng dẫn
+ Tiền: Cụ thể là USD trong tài khoản của các ví điện tử như: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Payeer , AdvCash, Perfect Money

Các thuật ngữ thường gặp trong HYIP

  • Trust site: Dự án có độ tin tưởng cao.
  • Scam: Dự án không còn trả tiền cho các khoản đầu tư hoặc trả tiền một cách chọn lọc (chỉ trả tiền cho một số người).
  • Script: Là chương trình của dự án được viết lại dưới các ngôn ngữ lập trình để thực hiện các tác vụ trên giao diện của web. Hầu hết các script của các dự án HYIP hiện nay đều được mua từ các gói lập trình sẵn. Các script nổi tiếng hiện nay là H-Script và Gold Coder Script.
  • Minimum payment (Minpay): Số tiền tối thiểu được rút ra mỗi lần.
  • Minimum deposit (Mindep):Số tiền đầu tư tối thiểu.
  • Cashout, Withdraw: Chức năng bạn dùng để thực hiện lệnh rút tiền.
  • Instant Withdraw: Xử lí rút tiền tức thì, đặt lệnh rút tiền là sẽ được xử lí ngay tức khắc.
  • Manual Withdraw: Xử lí rút tiền thủ công, đặt lệnh rút tiền xong cần chờ đợi một khoảng thời gian từ một vài tiếng trở lên thì lệnh mới được xử lí.
  • Release Deposit: Rút vốn sớm trước kì hạn đầu tư, thông thường sẽ phải chịu một khoảng phí từ -5% số tiền đầu tư trở lên.
  • Pending: Lệnh rút tiền của bạn bị trì hoãn vô thời hạn, trường hợp pending quá 24h đều là dấu hiệu của các dự án lừa đảo.

HYIP là gì – Có mấy dạng site HYIP?

Ngoài câu hỏi thường gặp “HYIP là gì?” thì câu hỏi về “Có những dạng site HYIP nào” bạn cũng cần phải quan tâm và tìm hiểu thật kỹ nhé. Đây! Theo cá nhân mình phân chia ở thời điểm hiện tại có 4 dạng phổ biến bao gồm:
+ HYIP dài hạn (Long-term HYIP): Loại này lãi suất thường thấp rơi vào khoảng 1% – 3% hàng ngày bao gồm cả gốc với thời gian kéo dài từ 40 ngày trở lên hoặc lãi từ 0.5%- 2% hàng ngày, hoàn gốc cuối chu kì với thời gian kéo dài từ 20 ngày trở lên.
+ HYIP trung bình (Medium-term HYIP): Loại này thường đưa ra các mức lợi nhuận dao động từ 40- 60% mỗi tháng, các HYIP kiểu này thường hoạt động theo hình thức kim tự tháp – Pyramid Scheme (mô hình Ponzi) lấy tiền của người sau trả người trước, ai tham gia sớm thì rủi ro càng thấp. Các chương trình này mình nhận thấy thường tồn tại ở mức 3- 4 tháng trở lại.
+ HYIP ngắn hạn (Short-term HYIP): Cũng hoạt động theo mô hình Ponzi nhưng dạng HYIP này có chu kì ngắn chỉ kéo dài trong khoảng 10 ngày đổ lại với cách trả lãi theo phút, theo giờ, theo ngày hoặc cho phép rút vốn sớm với mức lợi nhuận cực hấp dẫn từ 20% trở lên cho mỗi chu kì và thường tồn tại ở mức 30 ngày trở lại.
+ HYIP đánh nhanh (Fast HYIP): Chu kì ngắn chỉ kéo dài một vài ngày thậm chí chỉ có vài giờ với lợi nhuận cực kì lớn, dạng này thì có vòng đời khá ngắn thường vào khoảng 10 ngày đổ lại. Ví dụ: 30% mỗi giờ trong 4 giờ, 120% sau 1 ngày,….Đối với dạng HYIP này phía blog không giới thiệu đến NĐT.
Chú ý: Thông tin chỉ mang tính chất tham khảo dựa trên kinh nghiệm cá nhân của mình để phân loại.

Các HYIP lừa đảo sẽ như thế nào?

  • Giao diện thiết kế sơ sài.
  • Sử dụng host miễn phí hoặc rẻ tiền.
  • Sử dụng tên miền (domain) miễn phí như: .xyz; .tk;…
  • Sử dụng các kế hoạch đầu tư lãi cao với thời gian ngắn. Ví dụ: 40% mỗi giờ trong 3 giờ.
  • Dụ dỗ bằng cách tặng thưởng lớn khi tham gia. Ví dụ: Tặng 25$ miễn phí khi đăng kí tài khoản.

Đối tượng nào không nên tham gia đầu tư HYIP?

Người đi vay mượn, cầm cố để đầu tư.
Đây là điều tối kị trong đầu tư HYIP. Tuyệt đối không được vay mượn, cầm cố để tham gia, bởi đầu tư HYIP là một lĩnh vực đầu tư vô cùng mạo hiểm, tiềm ẩn nhiều nguy cơ rủi ro, bạn có thể mất trắng toàn bộ số tiền đầu tư mà không thể đòi lại được từ bất cứ một ai. Hãy chỉ tham gia đầu tư HYIP bằng số tiền nhàn rỗi để trong trường hợp xảy ra rủi ro nếu số tiền này bị mất đi sẽ không ảnh hưởng quá lớn đến cuộc sống của bạn.
Thêm nữa, khi bạn đi vay mượn, cầm cố để lấy tiền đầu tư, sẽ dẫn đến bị áp lực về mặt tâm lí khiến bản thân đưa ra các quyết định sai lầm trong việc lựa chọn các dự án đầu tư, nhất là khi bạn bị thua lỗ bạn sẽ cố gắng tìm cách gỡ gạc lại bằng cách đầu tư nhiều hơn ở các dự án sau này để thu hồi lại số tiền bị thua lỗ ban đầu. Thế nhưng, đời không như mơ, một lần nữa, bạn có thể tiếp tục bị thua lỗ và thậm chí là lỗ nặng cháy sạch tài khoản. Chính vì vậy, một lần nữa xin nhấn mạnh lại rằng, hãy chỉ tham gia đầu tư HYIP bằng số tiền nhàn rỗi!
Người đầu tư theo phong trào, không hiểu HYIP là gì?
Đây chính lực lượng chiếm phần lớn trong thị trường. Họ đến với đầu tư HYIP vì được nghe từ một lời mời quảng cáo hấp dẫn như dễ kiếm tiền, đơn giản, nhân nhanh số vốn trong thời gian ngắn,…Đặc điểm của những người này là không hề có kiến thức về đầu tư tài chính, kiến thức căn bản để đánh giá một site HYIP, không có kế hoạch cụ thể. Và, họ đa phần đều thua lỗ.
Người mong muốn làm giàu một cách nhanh chóng.
Không có con đường làm giàu nào một cách nhanh chóng, tất cả đều phải có quá trình học hỏi, trau dồi kiến thức, vấp ngã và đúc kết kinh nghiệm để có được thành công.
Người quá tham lam không biết điểm dừng.
Cổ nhân xưa có câu “Tham thì thâm”, quả không sai tẹo nào, nhất là trong đầu tư HYIP thì nó lại càng thấm.

Bitcoiin (B2G): an ERC-20 Token That Claims to Be Superior to Bitcoin (BTC) but Has No Redeeming Qualities, Raised $75 Million in ICO and Lost 94 Percent of Its Value

Bitcoiin (B2G): an ERC-20 Token That Claims to Be Superior to Bitcoin (BTC) but Has No Redeeming Qualities, Raised $75 Million in ICO and Lost 94 Percent of Its Value

https://preview.redd.it/v6f6x4htudh21.png?width=690&format=png&auto=webp&s=a53bbc775a9c5f99d76e07a8128ff25d8b97e06e
https://cryptoiq.co/bitcoiin-b2g-an-erc-20-token-that-claims-to-be-superior-to-bitcoin-btc-but-has-no-redeeming-qualities-raised-75-million-in-ico-and-lost-94-percent-of-its-value/
Bitcoiin (B2G) is one of the most obvious Bitcoin (BTC) copycats in the crypto space. This cryptocurrency has almost the exact same spelling as Bitcoin (BTC). This is dishonest to begin with, since investors may get confused and accidentally buy Bitcoiin (B2G) instead of actual Bitcoin (BTC).
It only gets worse from there. Bitcoiin (B2G) claims to be superior to Bitcoin (BTC) as well as being the world’s first self-sufficient cryptocurrency ecosystem. The reality is Bitcoiin (B2G) is simply an ERC-20 token and has no redeeming qualities. Anyone could make an ERC-20 token within a few minutes with a free script.
Also, ironically, Bitcoiin (B2G) is dependent on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain and does not have its own blockchain. This means Bitcoiin (B2G) is certainly not self-sufficient. It is true that Bitcoiin (B2G) can be mined, but this is a common option for ERC-20 tokens, and the mining actually serves no purpose for securing the network.
A total of 100 million Bitcoiin (B2G) were created and 15 million were sold in the ICO for $75 million, a price of $5 per Bitcoiin (B2G). It is mind boggling that this ICO raised so much money considering that Bitcoiin’s (B2G) whitepaper is a powerpoint presentation full of misleading statements.
Steven Seagal endorsed the ICO, which partially explains why it raised so much money despite being an unredeeming copycat. Further, the ICO used a multi-level marketing (MLM) scheme, where users got bonuses of up to 15 percent for recruiting other people to buy Bitcoiin (B2G). This is quite similar to a ponzi scheme.
Further, the ICO gave discounts of up to 50 percent if investors purchased $100,000 of Bitcoiin (B2G) at once. This makes it obvious that the ICO price of $5 was a farce.
Indeed, the highest market price of Bitcoiin (B2G) was just over $1 during a pump and dump this month, well below the $5 ICO price. Currently, Bitcoiin (B2G) is near $0.30, meaning ICO investors who purchased at $5 lost 94 percent of their investment if they HODLed.
It is known that at least 15 million Bitcoiin (B2G) were sold in the ICO, but it is unclear what happened to the other 35 million Bitcoiin (B2G) that would have been sold if the $250 million hard cap was reached.
It is quite possible that the developers of Bitcoiin (B2G) are dumping these 35 million coins onto the market. Indeed, the price of Bitcoiin (B2G) crashed hard after the rally earlier this month, and any attempts at rallies after the initial pump are being smashed down quickly.
Ultimately the developers of Bitcoiin (B2G) raised $75 million for a poorly built Bitcoin (BTC) copycat, using MLM tactics and celebrity endorsement. Supposedly, this ICO money was needed to fund development, but this does not make any sense since ERC-20 tokens do not cost anything to develop. Ultimately, everyone besides the people who launched Bitcoiin (B2G) took heavy losses. ICOs like Bitcoiin (B2G) are the exact reason that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is cracking down on ICOs.

TIL: The latest ponzi scheme - PIPcoin

Well today was interesting. After seeing a ton of people trying to spam their referral links into some of the big Facebook groups we run at work, I decided to investigate a bit more after dinner & a couple of glassses of wine.
Let me introduce you to PIPcoin. (for those like me who missed it when it last came up on the sub)
PIPcoin from the horses mouth
PIPcoin's CEO on SABC
One of his "free" seminars.
Here is a quick recording off their homepage :-(
Pipcoin is Africa’s first P2P Cryptocurrency and is more seen as an emerging digital currency that seeks to revolutionize accessibility and raise awareness about the importance of online trading to the multitudes of both the aspirant traders and those who are completely unaware of the abounding benefits and opportunities offered by the digital market. Thus, for all its worth as a potential life-changing tool, we want Pipcoin to be everybody’s business.
So this is new... lets take a look at their FAQ's because I have many! here are my favourite bits:
What Is The Structure Of A Pipcoin? Pipcoin Concept (for developers) -IF YOU HAVE 0,9999 MICRO-PIPS THEN IT WILL BE ROUNDED OFF TO 1.0000 – MAKING IT 1 PIPCOIN-
lol really? Where does that extra micro tit pip come from?
Why Pipcoin Isnt A Get Rich Quick Scheme Whenever there is a new digital breakthrough it is natural for people to be sceptic, this has been scientifically proven. Even at one stage the internet was said to be a scam, same goes to online trading, they said it won’t last. Same goes to Facebook; they said it’s an information-leaking scam. Same goes again to Bitcoin they said it’s a ‘failed experiment’. Pipcoin is the people’s currency and can never in a scale be compared to ponzi schemes and investment bonanzas; Pipcoin is a friend-to-friend digital currency which has its own crypto keys and public ledger just like any other legit digital currency. Everyone is a host to the currency, every participants’ computers serve as servers to the system and just like forex trading it is a zero-sum game, when you buy the coins there will be someone selling to you.
SkepticalHippoIsSkeptical.jpg
Who Is The Founder Of Pipcoin? However the inception of the idea can be credited to David Schwartz and the inception of the algorithm and mathematics behind to Ref Wayne, a 21 year old South African who is behind the creation of most high-tech forensic software as well as the indicators for financial trading platform (Forex Metatrader), it is without chance that the creation of Pipcoin is water-proof and crack-free.
Aside from the laughable wording, this is perhaps the most interesting part. If you can make it through this interview or this video his story sounds a lot like this "David Schwartz" story here. Excuse the popups but give it a read and obviously the comments at the bottom.
Is Pipcoin Legal? ...After all, there is no authority that can stop anyone from buying and selling a product online.
hahahahahahahahAHAHAha!
Do I Need To Provide Any Id Documents To Join Pipcoin is a cryptocurrency which means it’s completely encrypted, even for its users, it remains completely confidential. You don’t need to submit any documents.
erm... surely this goes against SO many laws in SA?
How Reliable Is This Website In Terms Of Security And Keeping Personal Data And Pipcoins [no ? at the end of these ones for some reason] We pay great attention to security and the confidential information on the website is protected by EV SSL. We don’t divulge any personal data of members to third parties. Your participation too, is strictly confidential.
thats...not really explaining it at all. SSL isnt the be-all and end all - but oh there's another one right below. Im sure that'll clear it up...
Are You Protected From Hackers We have installed power Anti-DDOS protection on our servers and have many other security measures.
well that settles it.
ok ok so whats next?
Some points/gems from their Terms of User PDF [mirror here] (i've never heard that phrase) but looks like something from the lawfirm of Copy, Pasta and Google.
All references to the ‘company,’ ‘us,’ ‘our,’ ‘we’ or ‘Pipchain’ means Pipchain South Africa S.a.r.l., a company registered under the laws of South Africa, with a share capital of EUR 55,222.08, having its registered address at L-2340 South Africa, 1, rue Philippe II, registered with the South Africa Trade and Companies Register under number B 190.078 (Business License number B190078).
I tried to find out if thats real but I couldnt figure out how to do it via the new http://www.cipc.co.za/ site.
Their privacy policy link https://pipchain.com/PrivacyPolicy.pdf 404's
Typos galore eg - " Server failure ordata loss;"
We make no warranty that the Website or the server that makes it available, are free of viruses or errors, that its content is accurate, that it will be uninterrupted, or that defects will be corrected.
wut?!
  1. AGREEMENT TO HOLD PIPCHAIN HARMLESS
wut2
7.2. If you are obligated to indemnify us, we will have the right, in our sole discretion, to control any action or proceeding (at our expense) and determine whether we wish to settle it.
ok...
9.1. You need not use a Pipchain Wallet. If you wish to use the Wallet, you must create a wallet with Pipchain to access the Services (“Wallet”)
I need an adult.
10.5. No Storage or Transmission of Pipcoins. Pipcoins are an intangible, digital asset. They exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained in the Pipcoin network. The Services do not store, send or receive Pipcoins. Any transfer of title that might occur in any Pipcoins occurs on the decentralized ledger within the Pipcoin network and not within the Services. We do not guarantee that the Service can effect the transfer of title or right in any Pipcoins.
and
10.8. No Cancellations or Modifications. Once transaction details have been submitted to the Pipcoin network via the Services, The Services cannot assist you to cancel or otherwise modify your transaction details. Pipchain has no control over the Pipcoin Network and does not have the ability to facilitate any cancellation or modification requests.
In the SABC interview (linked at the top of this post) the CEO says he took bitcoin and 'modified' it to be safer and so you can track 'stolen or lost' coins. So thats a lie.
  1. DISCONTINUANCE OF SERVICES 15.1. We may, in our sole discretion and without cost to you, with or without prior notice and at any time, modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, any portion of our Services. You are solely responsible for storing, outside of the Services, a backup of any Wallet Address and Private Key pair that you maintain in your Wallet.
erm, ok but because PIPcoins can only be traded on their website and not transferred to anything else... how does that work?
17.1.3. Use any robot, spider, crawler, scraper or other automated means or interface not provided by us to access our Services or to extract data; 17.1.4. Use or attempt to use another user’s Wallet without authorization
the enter key is a hard one to find on a laptop I'll give them that one...
---- gets more wine ---
They claim to have a 30-35% growth rate on any and all investments! Crazy returns.
I did a bit of a google on them and immediately found these posts.
Some choice excerpts:
The company has promised that it will soon be issuing a debit card. Promising to issue a debit is an old trick used by fraudulent companies to create a false sense of trust and legitimacy to unsuspecting investors.
and
The transfer of pipcoins is verified by one sources, instead of 3 independent source as is usually the case with legitimate crypto currencies with a blockchain.
and
They also use wording similar to ‘get-rich-quick' scheme lines such as “Pipcoin will create over a 100 millionaires by the end of this financial year”. These are revealing signs of a fraudulent scheme. Moreover, pipcoin is a closed system, you cannot trade with anyone other than randomly chose people registered on the website. Their blockchain is not public or transparent, in fact, they do not have a blockchain and, if they do have one, then it is not operational.
So who's behind it? Who is this Ref dude?
According to his Twitter bio he's "Youngest Billionaire in Africa | Founder of African 1st ever digital currency ! Get a minimum interest of 35% @infopipcoin"
here are some choice images from his public FB:
I tried to register on https://mypipcoins.com/ but there's an ASPX error during the registration process and it kept trying to switch between https and http. Great start. I tried in all major browsers and they all failed so I gave up on trying to signup with my temp email [email protected] :(
So then, lets take a closer look at the support they offer on their site. They've got one of those "live chat" widgets on their site and this evening there was actually someone online :)
I said "hello" and saw "busi has joined the conversation" - sweet.
Here is the transcript I downloaded before they killed the chat. Lucky I insta-clicked the download before they killed my chat session.
As you can see by the chat log, Busi linked me to whats obviously the new 'site' they're launching this weekend https://pipchain.com/
The site looks a lot like the blockchain.info website.
Their market page is awesome compared to blockchain.info's one! its even got a bigger market cap! Note the article links are all the same, except for two small things.
  1. None of the links work...because
  2. they've done a find&replace in the code, replacing all instances of "bitcoin" with "pipcoin" XD
Anyway, I thought I'd try signup on THIS site and lo 'n behold I managed to sign up! [email protected] lives!
Here is PIPcoin's dashboard and here is Blockchain.info's dashboard.
Here is PIPcoins transactions page and here is Blockchain.info's transaction page.
So pretty much a blatant copy/pasta job.
-- final thoughts --
Its unfortunate that the quality of journalism in SA is so weak. PIPcoin getting a lot of media attention for something thats honestly so dodgy, if you looked at it for more than 5 minutes you'd know. Many people are going to fall for this and if you look at the comments on twitter or on his FB posts or on any video calling out the scam you'll shake your head.
Someone (not me) has even put this site together https://www.pipcoin.co/ which is as informative as it is awesome! Click the login and it takes you to "Logging in should be the last thing you should be worried about right now." and the bottom of the site has the best burn ever
"This website was built as a public service announcement by concerned citizens (and shows what a legitimate site should look like"
I did try connect with the 'owner' via twitter to find the source/calculation of the "R40 314 800,00 lost & counting" figure but so far no reply.
Anyway its late and I'm going to bed. I hope you learnt something and if you see anyone in your social circles promoting this please make them aware.
EDIT: Reddit formatting is hard.
EDIT2: Got a reply from the person behind the pipcoin.co site - http://imgur.com/a/995oN which honestly shows the lack of skills the scheme has in the development/security field and now if you rewatch the interviews you can see why he's so scripted when talking about the tech stack.
EDIT3: Sigh. I made a comment on the PIPcoin FB page to warn people about this and this is the response I found this morning - http://imgur.com/a/tFoAy I dont even know what/how to respond...

#Bitcoin2014 was sponsored by a ponzi scheme

Hey Reddit, I wanted to point out something I found fishy while attending the #Bitcoin2014 conference, I believe bitcoin-trader.biz is a HYIP (Ponzi scheme) and they were sponsors of the event. I got in touch with the organisers but had no reply so thought I would post a word of warning here.
They were minor sponsor of the event, I think they donated $1,500. If you have a look at their website you will quickly realise why I (and many others) think that they are a High Yield Investment Program (HYIP). The things that make it a HYIP:
  1. Daily returns of around 1%
  2. Investment lock-up period
  3. The company is registered in Panama
  4. Offer high referral commissions
  5. Anonymous owners (even though they claim to operate out of London)
  6. No proof of income generating activity
  7. Provide a link to a HYIP scripts website
I feel that the 2 biggest risks with this are; 1. Legitimising a HYIP to people in the Bitcoin community who don’t know what they are and 2. Associating Bitcoin with more fraud.
Just to make it clear, I am not accusing the Bitcoin Foundation or anyone else of anything but a minor oversight. I just want to start a discussion on this to prevent this from happening at any future events and educate people about HYIPs.
I hope that someone on here can clarify the situation and even explain HYIPs to others better than I can. I did a longer evaluation in my post here.

Welcome BTC Holders, Here's Why You Should Join Us Today

After reading some absolute nonsense on Bitcointalk today, I decided to post on the BTC forums and help them clear up some things. It's time they start looking at alternatives. Even if ETH is not going to replace BTC, other cryptocurrencies will emerge out of nowhere and will pose an existential threat to BTC eventually.
It is time to stop calling the competition a "ponzi" scheme and open your eyes.

[Marketing] How we can appeal to the masses!

Hey guys, so we've obviously had an recent debacle occur in the community but the fact of the matter remains that Vertcoin is seeing faster levels of growth. We've been accepted on Mintpal, were seeing higher volumes exchanged and the community is starting to blossom. The currency itself is beginning to mature, and the recent press release I think shows that we can still do a lot to help inform people of what we are doing. What is important now is that we continue to innovate and ensure the upward trend we are currently experiencing. How can this be done? There needs to be a shift in terms of the marketing of this currency from one which is focused on developers and 'tech-savvy' people to one which understands the needs and aspirations of the general public.
Before I delve into some of my ideas, as Jay Z would say, "Allow me to reintroduce myself". I am someone who had been interested in technology from an early age and who has relatively in depth knowledge about computing and technology. I'm an economics student currently working as a designer for my University while also studying there. I'm also getting involved with a number of different non-crypto related startups. I've been active in the world of cryptocurrency from the beginning of this year but I've heard about it for a number of years, just never made the jump due to a lack of workable knowledge and technical barriers. Starting with a relatively large investment in Bitcoin, I split my portfolio into Litecoin initially, then progressing to Vertcoin soon after its inception. What drew me to this currency in particular was the clear focus from the developers on the long term sustainability of the coin. As someone who entered the arena relatively late and who may have got swept up by some unsubstantiated hype (Coinye anyone?) what I wanted was a currency which had a clear direction in terms of the future. Innovations such as the ACIS resistance and merge mining are examples of the attempts to strive for longevity.
In terms of branding I believe there is something here which potentially could be made mass marketable. From the name, to the logo and then the general styling, its clear that this is a currency that as well as leading innovation, is taking its branding seriously. That is something which is needed for widespread adoption.
You're probably wondering, then, why I am bringing the branding into question. It is not the brand in itself I see issue in, its who exactly is being marketed to. I'll give an example.
On our main website there are a number of videos which aim to help explain exactly what our currency is and why it should be used. The aim of which is to draw people to using our currency over others. What should be observed here is the target audience for these videos. In both, technical aspects are discussed as benefits to using the coin. ACIS resistance, Decentralisation, handling fees, mining etc. These are all valid points. The problem with this is the fact that, to the average consumer, you might as well be speaking gibberish. The average person does not know what mining is, what ACIS's are or what the benefits of decentralisation are. It's likely they don't understand or even care about these aspects. If you are attracting someone who has a technical background and who had already dipped their toes into the crypto waters so to speak, then they are likely to understand these benefits, which is why when ACIS starts to hurt other script coins there will be a transition of those people potentially to us. What problem do I have with this? None. It's simply a matter of whether you are looking to expand your standing within the community or appeal to a larger audience. Appeal to a larger audience and you increase your appeal within the crypto community. The key issue is that this cannot work the other way.
There need's to be a split of targeted marketing to those who have a technical background and to those who don't. This is something that is not witnessed often in this community, but there is one notable example I'm sure everyone's aware of. Dogecoin is doing incredibly well for a currency which was built atop a joke. Is there any real innovation there? Probably not technically, and yet they have been plastered across media. Why? Because they appeal to the mass market rather than a small minority of the technical elite. Just look at their intro video! It's a dog on a rocket. There isn't a single mention of any technical aspect In many ways its most likely inferior to our own and yet I've had people approach me to inform them of how to buy some. It may sound harsh, but when you market something you have to appeal to the lowest common denominator. In that sense you can then work your way up and you appeal to everyone.
So what can we do? I am not saying that we need to go down the playful route in terms of what Doge is going. In the long run how can anyone take a currency seriously thats supposed to be a joke? However what I believe needs to be done is putting a larger focus on the consumer benefits and not just the technical.
All of this can be communicated in a simple animations. I would suggest creating two videos, one to act as an advert to encourage and excite people to find out more and the other walking the user through the initial steps of downloading the wallet and the basic concepts of crypto currencies in layman terms. The latter I would suggest not hosting on youtube but directly on the website to then allow the user to click and download the wallet.
[Sidenote - Any advertising done by the community needs to be shown to be a community effort, otherwise it looks like a Ponzi scheme. This can be done with a message like (This ad was sponsored by the community on reddit) or something like that]
Imagine now that I am an average joe. I am interested in joining the community. These are some of the questions I may have and perhaps the solutions:
What can I spend my Money on? No matter how much innovation you can claim to have with your decentralised currency, this is perhaps THE MOST IMPORTANT POINT. Everything else is irrelevant if you are unable to spend your money on anything. And this is perhaps the biggest problem for crypto currencies today; People just have no idea where they can spend money. Though some of you may notice there are some stores on the sidebar, but a new user is unlikely to find this place in the first place, and it's not exactly prominent there anyway. So whats the easiest way to market places to which people can spend their hard earned vert? The wallet. Personally I think the entire interface is being underutilised. That, ladies and gentlemen, is the face of your currency. It is the first thing people will see. And what will they see? 0 vert, 0 transactions and a logo. And then there just expected to know what to do. What I would propose is to have a tab perhaps labeled 'Marketplace' which features prominent online retailers which accept vert for a number of goods. That immediately solves the problem. It shows that there are things to buy with your currency, encourages spending so it is not a purely speculative currency (which is not healthy in the long run) and displays an active community to first timers. Not only that but it could act as a source of income for the foundation as you could allow businesses to bid for a more prominent placement in this tab, which could then help with further marketing.
[As a sidenote, the wallets GUI needs to be updated anyway. How can anyone believe this is a currency for the future when it looks like something from windows 98?]
How do I Get Money? Vertcoin faucets exist. As a newcomer you're likely to be unaware of this. They are incredibly useful as it allows for someone to play around with the idea of sending virtual money around. This could be integrated directly into the wallet as so when a user signs up, they are offered the opportunity on the spot to receive free coins. What could be better than that? Then encouraging them through social media to send money to friends as a sort of referral system in which both parties then get more money. That way you can spread quickly through social links.
[Another sidenote, someone needs to work on a Twitter Vertcoin Bot. That's free promotion for the community right there. It's all fun and games here on Reddit but normal users are more likely to be on Twitter, so it makes sense to capitalize on that market]
You could also implement a similar system with the advertising and allow trusted exchanges to offer their services. One of the big problems with people coming in is that they have no idea how to get the currency in the first place, putting them off. This would solve that issue.
What If I Need Help? Which leads me to my next point; the integration of the community in the wallet itself. If I use a bank, if i need help I can call them, visit a branch and talk to a manager. With virtual currencies more often than not your left to your own devices. Cryptocurrencies are scary enough, it's even more terrifying to not have someone hold your hand through it. Why not have another tab within the wallet which links to reddit, help guides, FAQ's and stuff like that? Why not have a tutorial within the wallet which guides the user to make their first transaction? It immediately lowers the technical barriers and thus allows for further engagement.
How Do I Mine? Integration of a one click mining button into the wallet. Helps with decentralisation and could solve your P2Pool problem. It could be made incredibly user friendly, with a GUI and the ability to scroll and select through a list of P2Pools.
I think the basic premise of these ideas is that the wallet shouldn't be seen only as the thing that we use to make transactions, but instead act as the 'Bank' for individuals and HUB for services.
[EDIT] In conclusion here's a summary of my ideas:
  1. Greater focus on first time consumers rather than the crypto community
  2. Create 2 Adverts, One which focuses on advertising the brand (commercial like), and another which focuses on simple technical aspects and initial setup of wallet for the website
  3. Creation of a Twitter Tip Bot
  4. Marketplace' Tab included in the wallet
  5. Mining Tab included in the wallet
  6. Integration of Faucet to wallet
  7. Offer free vert bonuses for sharing links to Vert Promotional Material on social media
  8. Tutorial in wallet to walk through first transaction
I'll be updating this later as I have more ideas but this has taken me half a day already and I'm forgetting things. If people are interested I could potentially do mockups for my vision for the wallet, but I'll leave that for another day :)
[EDIT 2] I'll be designing mockups for the wallet next week Tuesday so keep an eye out for that! Also if anyone wants to see an example in terms of branding the sort of thing we should be aiming for, checkout ReddCoin, the branding for this coin is amazing

in regards to the recent "mmm global" talk

I heard about this a few days ago, and decided to look into it briefly. The other day i was in a community teamspeak for bitcoin and someone pointed out that "if you look on twitter there are so many asians/orientals tweeting about mmm global and how they were paid out legitimately. It's becoming huge" etc. etc. After hearing this, i went to twitter and wanted to see if this was true or not. At first glance, sure it looks like there are many twitter accounts tweeting, hyping it up. There's even a bunch of vlogs about mmm global hyping up its legitimacy. However after taking a closer look, its very easy to see that all of these people vlogging are clearly reading off of a script. It is not difficult to find people who would be willing to make a short vlog in return for a small payment. It's actually the easiest thing in the world if you know the right people. And as far as the hundreds of twitter accounts per day simply tweeting about the ponzi go, 90% of them, if not all of them, are freshly created accounts.

Do not be so naive, people.

[Community Projects] What are you interested in building with an immutable, trustless and reasonably cheap service (contract) platform? Lets discuss our ideas and collaborate

Community Projects

Please share your project or ideas here. We can migrate to github pages once we init projects or find projects we can contribute to.
Please be very careful with javascript wallets, in my opinion I would treat all JS client based wallets as insecure and not ready for production use. Do not ask users to store input their private keys in a client side JS wallet. There is a very high likelihood sites using these will have an XSS vulnerability in one form or another. Always test your projects you plan to release to the public with test tokens and pair it with bug bounties to encourage review. Optionally escape hatches with expiry times.

**Blockchain Explorers

Sadly none of the major Blockchain explorers for Ethereum are open source, which seems like an odd choice since some of them use java script wallets. We need to maintain our own, if you create your own I encourage you to release it open source, so it can be peer reviewed and we can collaborate.
aakilfernandes started a fork of the basic block explorer released by Etherparty. https://github.com/aakilfernandes/explorer We need to add an account view, this would make it easier for people to easily verify their balances which is important while the concern of replay attacks is relevant.
There are already a lot of projects on github to import the block chain into various databases, if you wanted to start one this would be a good starting point.

**Decentralized Reddit

There will be no crowd sale With the success of steemit I had time to explore the system, explore the libraries and the platform.
My conclusion is that it is a fundamentally broken system, the economics are flawed and quite possibly best described as a ponzi scheme.
They blatantly lie and claim their system is decentralized when it is ran by a small group of people who collect payments for electing themselves and have an unfair vote weight in determining who receives payments from the locked assets every 24 hours. First in, first out.
The system has many security issues, is overly centralized in both distribution and by design, and the by using a central client is insecure and closed source. You can view my previous comments for details, if you want to discuss the details please reply to those comments.
Redesign That said, I think there is certain specific interesting aspects to the concept, I feel these are interesting concepts can be combined with a more secure and decentralized system. Since this would be easy to build with the existing tools, it might be worth experimenting with. It would be trivial and possibly advantageous to reproduce on Ethereum.
My primary goal design goal would be to create a system with fair distribution, reduce the complexity of the system and remodel the internal economy to have more checks and balances on inflation rates.
Mining System Using a smart contract on Ethereum, we eliminate the need for a mining system but every interaction costs Ether.
We can adopt a check to simply release tokens held for a vote after 24 hours or triggered manually. A check (with a max limit to create an upper limit on posting costs) could do the release eliminating the need to operate an alarm clock style application.
Removing the mining/witness system already does a lot to remove massive amounts of inflation from the system.
Since it would not require mining, all the tokens could be distributed through the voting system and initial sign up. This would allow for a more fair distribution, "whales" could only accumulate by generating content, voting accurately, purchases or finding a way to game the system.
The cost to post would create a spam filter which also would help limit inflation too. The details on what tokens could be used to pay need to be determined
Accounts & Sybil Attacks The difficult part A set amount of tokens could be initialized with the contract and granted to new users as they are created. It would be held in the contract in a decentralized way, and given out during registration. Allowing users to immediately post and contribute without making a purchase.
It would have to function as a fountain, initialized by the contract, and the balance would have to be replenished using a portion of the fees collected either on voting or donation. The difficult part is preventing botting the sign up process and draining the new user grant balance.
While I think it is unfair and complex, a system could be put in place to grant additional starting voting weight to scientists who would like to prove they are an expert in a field. It may function to allow experts to to filter for high quality content immediately. This would require a difficult to implement verification system that could not be easily decentralized in a way that could not be easily gamed.
All the security issues associated with Steemit's closed source central site design could be avoided almost entirely. By only allowing use of a spacial derivative (with a reasonable expire time) posting key (it could even be recoverable with a signature from the base key).
The community web accessible client would be open source and it could federate with other instances ran by different community members. The attack surface would be limited to revocable, recoverable and disposable derivative keys to access these clients. Having multiple clients would allow unique UI and feature development and greater resilience.
There is no need for account management to be on the shared sites. All token/money management would be handled safely as handling ETH in mist.
Voting Algorithms could be roughly the same as regards to vote weight/time of votes. Weight could be either a proportion of total tally of previous votes or locked deposits. I think the lock time should be much shorter so it would not just function as a ponzi scheme but instead provide some resistance against sibyl attacks on the voting system.
*There are still serious problems with this design but I think it would be a vast improvement over the existing system. It would be more equable, provide fair distribution system and limit inflation in simple methods. *
Internal market I don't think an internal market or pegged currency is necessary, it adds unnecessary complexity to this system. This would make the design modular and other services could specialize in those features.
Storage Data storage will be held off the chain whenever possible. It will reduce the fees for posting and limit bloat on the blockchain. IPFS or Webtorrent would both work.

**Decentralized Market

I have been recently working on a local bitcoin's style Ethereum market, I will publish what I have created on github soon. A simple centralized matching system paired with a simple escrow system and arbitration system. People could volunteer to mediate disputes earn a portion of the fees and build a reputation. There will be no crowd sale
Token Market There exist several token to token markets using JS client side wallet. This would be nice but it would be difficult to accomplish securely while using the browser as the UI. I would recommend to anyone interested in continuing the development of these projects do several test runs with test tokens paired with bug bounties before launching anything official.

**Ethstats

Someone recommend an https://ethstats.net/ style page, thankfully the code is open source:
https://github.com/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=ethstats&type=Repositories&ref=searchresults
If someone wants to run this for the original chain could be a useful asset to other members of the community

**Clients

We need more developers to maintain upstream patches to various clients.

Why I think Bitcoin-Trader.biz is a well-built (dormant) scam

Hello, here is my analysis for anyone still hesitating to invest into BT.biz
People, please review some profiles here, on reddit and on Bitcointalk and you'll see that many people "vouching" for BT are fake profiles... I've been investigating for the 3 last weeks, going beyond the analysis given on reddit (http://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/27h6l4/bitcoin2014_was_sponsored_by_a_ponzi_scheme/) by Vaiex to take my decision to invest or not. Even the local reps are consisting of fake accounts for some if not the majority.
Forget the testimonials, then. This is a very-well thought dormant-scam. It's much more machiavelic I'd say since they've put the right amount of "credible" info such as : - Arbitrage is a real way of making money - Buying limit of 50K - Doing operations relative to open bank days - Providing "honesty" by offering a product that is going weaker due to real facts (mining shares)
This creates a sort of fog to put BT in a grey zone were even intelligent people may get into the trap...
Don't get me wrong, a lot of fake accounts claimed to have received their principal back, the script used is a HYIP software that was used before and often, the first adopters of a Ponzi get their money back like many of you know. As soons as there is more 10L-50K investments, they will just pull off.
The 50K investment limit is also a trap. If you were to sue someone for 50K, it will cost you about the same amount to get it back, so this will discourage many to use legal actions and just live with the loss. This isn't the same with people goxxed for millions, it will be worth it to at least retreive some BTC. I know, my wife is an attorney and she did point me to that possibility straight when I started talking about this "opportunity".
Also, you have to get the same capital moving to get arbitrage working. What I mean is that the open bank days isn't relevant.
Take CaVirtex and VaultofSatoshi. There is a constant arbitrage opportunity, but thething is that I have to get the capital to go this way : Bank>CVX>VoS>Bank and so on. I can'T just split my money in 5 and think that I will get 1% per day. It won't even be possible because it takes 7-10 days to make this process possible with the 100% capital.
The only plausible way is that 50% of the time it is either one exchange or another that is selling BTC higher, but still, you have to transfer all those BTC. The full 100% ! And in 30 minutes there is slight chances that the arbitrage opportunity will stay the same. Also, this bank open days argument is irrelevant in that case, it is just fog.
I could be wrong in the long run, but I think that they did innovate by giving some info that would alter the capacity to see that it is a Ponzi scheme after all. If I am wrong, then I'm sorry for BT.biz and their faithful user.
Just my view on this. They lost me after all of this, especially the sock puppet accounts.
Sorry for the bad english, it isn't my natural tongue.
Update : after giving my view on the official group, I've got banned...
Michael Brandenburg : Sorry Tahar, but calling our representatives using fake accounts, is a reason to ban you from our group. This group was designed for our clients to share ideas, not for naysayer and hired posters to damage our reputation. Of course we are operating in the so called gray zone, as do all Bitcoin related ventures. 1 min · J’aime
Me : Go ahead, I understand. But it is easy to see.
Naysayer? Hired poster? I think they can't handle an opinion, I just stated that I could be wrong... I have no interest of doing this other that others may be tempted to put a lot of money in there. There is risk, but this one is slightly more risky.

Regarding the recent "mmm global" talk on here.

I heard about this a few days ago, and decided to look into it briefly. The other day i was in a community teamspeak for bitcoin and someone pointed out that "if you look on twitter there are so many asians/orientals tweeting about mmm global and how they were paid out legitimately. It's becoming huge" etc. etc.
After hearing this, i went to twitter and wanted to see if this was true or not. At first glance, sure it looks like there are many twitter accounts tweeting, hyping it up. There's even a bunch of vlogs about mmm global hyping up its legitimacy.
However after taking a closer look, its very easy to see that all of these people vlogging are clearly reading off of a script. It is not difficult to find people who would be willing to make a short vlog in return for a small payment. It's actually the easiest thing in the world if you know the right people.
And as far as the hundreds of twitter accounts per day simply tweeting about the ponzi go, 90% of them, if not all of them, are freshly created accounts. (not more than 24 hours old) My guess is these are all twitter bots. Again, something extremely easy and inexpensive to do.
Im not sure if this whole mmm global thing is meant to be FUD or what... But after hearing about it in the bloomberg article today, its apparent that many people believe there's tons and tons of individuals investing in this and that it has been greatly affecting the bitcoin price recently. In my opinion this is a bunch of BS and there is hardly anyone investing in this crap.
