Can we have a bitcoin thread?

I have been meaning to donate to this website for some time now and came to conclusion that bitcoin offers best privacy while doing so.

https://bitcoin.org/en/
https://bitcoin.org/en/getting-started
https://bitcoin.org/en/choose-your-wallet

I have been reading up on it and was wondering if anyone here uses bitcoin and which wallet are you using?

I am liking the idea of having offline cold storage on my olderlaptop for more security so I am considering getting "Armory" wallet.

Okay, so I haven't tried installing a wallet or buying BTC yet but following is what I learned…

Bytcoin is a cryptocurrency that doesn't actually exist. Nevertheless it still works, much like how many countries don't cover their paper money with gold but it still works. Its the trust in the value of currency that makes it usable.

First you need to get yourself a bitcoin wallet. Wallet can be stored on your mobile devices or computer in form of software, on your website account or on physical carrier hardware akin to USB flash keys.

Using wallet in form of software on mobile device or pc is most commonly used, as I understand it. Gives nice balance between security, privacy and ease of use.

Next would be physical bitcoin carries. They are designed from the root, meaning they cannont be reprogrammed or hacked. They are not connect to internet so this option is most secure but carriers can be costly, if you are particulary short on money.

Last option is creating account on bitcoin website and storing your bitcoins here. This option offers most vulnerablities and is generally not recommended.

I like the option of using bitcoin wallet as software on pc the most so I will further elaborate on this. There are few things that are good to take notice of when choosing this type of wallet.

-Next is privacy(main reason why I'd choose this payment method). Most secure wallets are those that:
1. make it hard to spy on balance of bitcoins in your wallet by rotating adresses.Rotating your bitcoin wallet address will help you to improve the security. If you use the same address over and over again, all transactions associated with it will be kept in a ledger forever.
!This makes you more vulnerable to fraudsters and scammers of all kinds, because using transaction details they can identify your personality and use this info for blackmailing or theft!
2. Don't share information with peers in network(people recieving or sending bitcoins to you)
3. Allow use of Tor as a proxy so internet providers or hackers won't find your real IP.(I wonder if other VPNs could do the job too)

-Next is control over fees. Fees are like tips to the waiter. Beside users in Bitcoin market who trade each other, there are also bitcoin miners. Basically they lend part of their processing power to solve processes of encrypting and decrypting transactions, after they solve the transaction, fee asociated with it is theirs for the taking. The bigger fee sender includes to the payment, the higher chance that transcations gets finished quicker.
Wallets tackle this in number of ways and often they suggest ideal fee so you can get transcation finished in timely manner and not pay too much either. These are generaly all good except wallets which don't give you suggestion so you will have to make your own estimates. Traditionally, the sender pays the full Bitcoin network fee; deducting the fee from the amount received by the recipient will often be considered an incomplete payment.

some general concepts as i understand it:

the blockchain holds every transaction ever. to run a full node you keep a full copy of the blockchain on your computer hence the 100GB reference. or you depend on a third party to act for you (risky).

your wallet doesn't hold your balance, the blockchain is the definitive record of account, your wallet is your authorisation to access your coins on the blockhain to move them to other people (a payment). your wallet software will show your balance after reading the blockchain.

you can be paid without your wallet running because a payment is just an entry on the blockchain and the blockchain exists on other nodes while your computer is off. but to verify a payment to you, you would use your wallet.

you should keep your wallet offline except when making a payment or verifying a payment to you. if anyone has a copy of your wallet they can transfer your coins. you should backup your wallet, if you loose it, your account and coins are gone FOREVER. you can back it up once and use that for ever because it doesn't change, think of it as an access card not a money container.

anyone can run a node which is just software to share updates between other nodes about new transaction on the blockchain. each node records the updates on its copy of the blockchain.

every new transaction on the blockchain is cryptographically connected to the previous transaction. any hacking of the blockchain would break this maths, and therefore be detected, and rejected. furthermore a hackers blockchain would be unlike all the others and be rejected by all the other nodes.

How to Subvert the Bitcoin Network in 5 Easy Steps - A Banker's Guide to Stifling Cryptocurrency
1. Refuse to remove the "spam-limit" on on-chain transactions because of "centralization"
>Satoshi limited the block size to 1MB when Bitcoin was still in its infancy in order to thwart spammers. (((They))) scapegoated Miners as the evil money-grubbing source of "centralization". Any fair-minded User in the system should obviously despise these greedy monopolists!
2. Propose a solution that enables transactions to be diverted away from the blockchain and instead to your second layer hubs.
>Segwit is a technology championed by (((Blockstream))) who is funded by AXA Stragetic Ventures whose CEO is Henri de Castries, Chairman of the Steering Committee of the Bilderberg Group.
3. Once the community rejects your plan, set a date and tell them it's going to happen anyway regardless, ignoring the underlying network. Shill this idea on all the social media platforms that you control that the miners don't matter.
>BIP148 (User Activated Soft Fork or UASF) was pitched as a radical User revolt against the evil Miners but only shills and newfags payed any attention to it. And it was /pol-tier shilling (remember Bitcoin is a $50B+ industry) across twitter and r/bitcoin with heavy censorship on the board. Go r/bitcoin and you'll see it - the familiar appearance of near consensus support of an idea, but in reality, there is deep animosity between the two camps (r/bitcoin and r/btc).
4. Co-opt your friends to propose a "compromise" that gives you everything you want, while only slightly increasing on-chain space, or most likely not increasing it all. Most importantly, pretend you hate this "compromise" and that you had nothing to do with it so the community rallies for it.
>When it became clear that BIP148 had no real support, (((they))) benevolently compromised with the community on Segwit2x, which gives them everything they want anyway.

I have a sci-fi universe I've been working on, set 30 years in an alternate future with a theoretically ever-expanding timeline to match the current year.

I'm planning on using it for GURPS pen and paper sessions online and was wondering if people could look over it, suggest replacing things, and tell me what's wildly inaccurate.

So I found this comic while reading about bitcoin privacy. I never thought about it this way.
I guess it makes sense that you don't really need complicated password, hard to remember, just put it in a phrase which computer will take ages to solve even though its easy to remember for you in particular.
But couldn't this make it easier for people to know you to break to your passwords? Still I guess it would be pretty difficult.

This unironically made me think. What are your thoughts, /tech/?

 No.2

>>191
ugh, I'll start with something that makes sense first and then move to harder passwords later. Really need to do a cleanup in my PC files and stuff first…

 No.3

>make it easier to break your passwords
A few considerations:
You are supposed to use random dictionary words, not a phrase you make up yourself.
The "Entropy" mentioned is a measure of pure randomness, so even if someone knows you used this method you can be sure of your safety if the entropy was high enough.


Personally I think this comic is a great advance in security for normies, but if you care about this sort of stuff you must to combine it with opsec.

The first principle is to know your adversary, which in practice means you choose an adversary to defend against.

For example: Your bank account might attract professional crackers with scripts for dictionary attacks and fuzzing, but they don't know you personally so a nonrandom passphrase may well protect against them. Your friends and family may know about your interests, but you might bet on them not having the expertise to build a dictonary and run scripts. If a bank employee or the state by extention wants access, your password aint gonna do shit. So even though your bank account is a high-profile target a nonrandom passphrase is surprisingly secure.

This does make assumptions about your situation. If all your personal information is available online it's possible to build a dictionary to solve your passphrase. Don't put personal information online. Personally I have some close friends who have the expertise to build a dictonary e.g. from all the emails I sent them, so I have to be more careful in selecting the passphrase, that's what random words are for.

The second principle is to know who has access. E.g. Who has access to your desk and does this provide a path for information to leak to the adversaries you chose? If not you can leave all the sensitive stuff right there on your desk.

I have kind of a fetish for old Macs and Mac operating systems, because that's what I grew up on. I mostly run things on emulators for convenience, but I have a Mac Plus, an original iMac from 2000, a Color Classic, and I used to have a Performa but it died on me. I'm hoping to track down a Mac LC like the first machine my family ever had.
Unfortunately running older hardware can be kind of a pain in the ass so like I said, most of the time I just run an emulator on a modern system, but I really enjoy running old software on old equipment.

Let's get a thread going for pre-cyberpunk depictions of the future. It seems like sometime after the cultural revolution of the 60s and 70s it became trendy in sci-fi to imagine grim dystopian end-of-the-world scenarios. While some of these dystopian settings can be interesting or at least aesthetically cool, I tend to prefer more positive imaginings of the future, from a time when Western civilization saw itself as a force for good in the world, before cultural Marxism taught us to see ourselves as a menace that needs to be deconstructed and subdued.

I have been looking for something more secure then discord for some time now.

I found only two programs with ideal ratio of securit and ease of use.

First I found out about Riot-Matrix on https://about.riot.im/

I find it pleasant to look at and its pretty anonymous but encryption seems to be lacking a bit.

Only recently I also found out about Wickr on: https://www.wickr.com/

This one strikes me as a bit minimal but more noticeably more secure.

Anyone here willing to help me out and test these?
My name on Riot is: @mancock9999:matrix.org
