Bitcoin Mafia Dogecoin faucet wallet hacked. No worries! Back online!
Several days ago the wallet for the Dogecoin faucet at Bitcoin Mafia was hacked and over 250,000 DOGE stolen (ugh!). No need to worry, my fellow Shibes! I mined some and scrimped some and was able to buy more DOGE to put into a new wallet for the faucet. So come on back and get your daily DOGE!
Bitcoin has had 2 bugs where someone could mint as many free Bitcoin as they wanted. One bug was exploited and the other was caught in time. Could you tell me please how those bug were exploited? I mean in the code. Since bitcoin is written in C and is immutable code... how the heck could the hacker play with the code and exploit the bitcoin network? I mean: there is no interface to play with some attack. At the best there is the bitcoin client MY question is: techniclly where the hacker put his fancy code in order to mint more bitcoin than usual? which interface was exploited / the hacker played with in order to do that?

An Appeal for Clarity about Bitcoin.com's Commitment to Testnet Development
TL;DR - Testnet infrastructure is flaky and, as a developer, this makes development and user experimentation frustrating and more difficult than it should be; does bitcoin.com have an updated "official position" on their commitment to testnet?; I am willing to pay for a reasonable level of reliable infrastructure to whoever can provide it I appreciate all testnet infrastructure that is in place (mostly provided by bitcoin.com, since that's what I've been using with Bitbox), so thank you very much to bitcoin.com and the community for providing all of that. I also realize and respect that Prod systems are #1 in terms of maintenance priority and that they are not obligated to provide ANY testnet infrastructure, so I appreciate what has been there in the past - please, do not forget that! I only do part-time BCH development and admittedly am taking a hack-and-slash development/experiment approach to see what works/is cool, which is why I'd rather mitigate my financial risk with TBCH rather than try to come up with a "secure" development/sharing model. I'd also like to make it low risk to demonstrate on a webapp the cool things that OTHER people can do with cryptocurrency, especially over the internet! The testnet faucet could be a great resource for that and I'd really like to be able to keep using that. However, there have been several periods of sub-optimal software development where the infrastructure is down for days or weeks without explanation or communication (now is one of those periods where tbitdb and TBCH block explorer is down). I've heard (informally, through some developers) that developing on testnet is not a good idea due to these infrastructure issues, but I've also heard from bitcoin.com/some of its folks that testnet infrastructure is something that they support. I have been assuming I could develop and demonstrate apps on testnet, but this has been getting progressively more difficult. I am willing to develop against mainnet to get the benefits of app ecosystem reliability, but this goes against my better instincts as a software developer for testing purposes. If I want people to "try stuff out" with crypto, I'd also like to be able to give away/leave behind paper wallets with TBCH rather than real BCH (one scales much better than the other!). I'm hoping I and others in similar situations can get clarity from bitcoin.com about what we should expect in the future with regards to testnet infrastructure support and uptime. Again, I am willing to rethink going to mainnet to do my testing and experimentation, but I feel that's the wrong way to attract new developers to the space. I'd even pay to have access to a reliable testnet environment (explorerest.bitcoin.com/BitDB server) - is this something else other developers would find worthwhile, too?
I've been reading the posts in here for a number of months and they definitely give me a chuckle, I'm not a fan of Bitcoin but I'm a fan of Nano, what is your opinion on Nano? I'm not shilling it I'm simply looking for your opinion on it as this sub has a lot of hate towards bitcoin/altcoins in general. These are my reasons why I have so much faith in Nano:
0 transaction fees
Near instant transaction times (fully-settled, NOT 0-conf)
First layer scalable (300+ CPS tested)
Non-inflationary (current supply == max supply)
Energy efficient (green)
Small developer fund
Distributed for free via CAPTCHA faucet
Anyone can be a representative
Secure (was audited and has never been hacked)
Open developers and development
It's a lightweight protocol whose goal is to be an Internet RFC for value transfer. Similar to HTTP, TCP, SMTP, etc
It's ONLY focus is to be the most efficient decentralized peer-to-peer value transfer possible (no smart contracts)
First, I'd like to apologies for how long this is going to be, but I believe context is everything. I'd like to apologize to the Nano community. Since before the re brand I've always cracked jokes about the project, primarily because I can't stand moonbois.. but I digress. I guess you could say I was early on the Bitcoin chain. I was blown away by the white paper and mined coins before ASICs we're even a discussion. Never got rid of them or anything, just thought it was an amazing concept to me since I had been repeatedly jacked around by a few banks. However, as a recurring theme life happened and I fell out of it completely. A few years went by when someone brought it up to me and when I asked how much it was worth, I almost had a heart attack. Probably shouldn't have spilled beer on the laptop holding my address and key. It didn't even cross my mind when I threw it out.. So I was back, other projects were on the come up and I took interest. Thought they were great, still do.. But I couldn't wrap my head around a lot of it. I'm familiar with code like I am around the block of an engine, but I'm not a mechanic. I couldn't fathom having to use a calculator to figure out how much gas I needed to send 100 coins of X. Thought I did it right and boom... Dust. The rage. Made some good strides and learned from previous mistakes, but I was still somewhat upset with decisions made within these projects. Who would think that was okay? Life happened again and I dropped out for quite awhile again to return back to a colleague at work mentioning BTC at around 9K. I quietly (I don't mention to many people about how involved I've been) checked out my addresses and was blown away. So I was back. Yeah I made gains (lost a lot too), but I was already well on my way in life and career and didn't need the rocket in some dream of a lambo (Masi's are better). I just wanted all of this to work. Again, it seemed like it was too hard to do anything, move things around... Dust here, dust there.. None the less, I learned more. Taught myself some code just so I could understand the githubs.. No desire to code, just wanted to learn. The dream I saw a few years ago was growing and I felt optimistic. Stuck around for a long run and then life happened again. Came back at probably the best time in late summer 2017. You want to talk about diversification... I just (today) burned a stack of papers with private keys written down to projects I forgot even existed. The mayhem! Anyway, won some lost some yeah yeah everyone has those stories.... I was still frustrated because that image I had in my head when I was a bit younger was not really fulfilled. Man, these moonbois, let me tell you. At the time and shortly after cracking jokes and having fun was basically my MO (I'm very sarcastic, still am). But yet again, life happened and I let everything just sit where the chips were.. With the exception of those burned out GPUs and the S9's. They went into the trash. Life gave me a nice little easy path more recently and I've been poking my head around again. The moonboi epidemic is definitely at an ATH. But where the hell was this image I had years back and now and why did it seem like it died? Too many scams? Too many hacks? Too much smoke and mirrors? The founding idea is/was so perfect? But I wanted that image. The past couple weeks I've been being my sarcastic ass and ripping a bit on Nano. I saw an actual well thought out post on Reddit and thought “Alright, that's pretty well said. Let me hear this out.” So I took a look. Thought it was better put together than other projects so I lurked around. Today in the daily general I asked for a laymen's approach. I didn't need it, but I wanted to see what would be thrown at me. I was impressed. I saw on another thread about Natrium and a faucet... DAMN, that was fast. Alright I thought, let's dabble. So I did what I always do.. Took a little BTC to the exchange, picked up some nano, set up the ledger and mobile app and tested some stuff out. Do you know the feeling after everything I just said to send 10 Nano from the exchange (including fee) to a mobile wallet, to the ledger, back to the mobile wallet and then back to the exchange and in the end... still have 10 Nano? In under less than I don't even know.. as fast as I could copy and paste it?! I called for my wife took her phone and sent myself 10 Nano back and forth. Man am I an asshole. I'm not “In” so to speak, because honestly, at this point. I don't care about prices. I just want to use the shit. Life happens, I want to be able to continue down life and use this shit. The last time I actually used BTC for anything was in 2014. BTC is digital gold for me.. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah... Sounds like some WSJ headline, I know. But it's been a good hedge against inflation for what's it worth. But during that second to last time I was back.. the Tx fees were unbelievable. Store of value, all the way, buying a snickers bar? No thanks mate. I'm actually late to meet a friend at the bar for our weekly pint, was gonna just send this, but he's a moonboi. One sec. Lol --- 45 min later --- Alright, at the pub. Got him to download Natrium. We're now gonna just buy eac hother drinks for the next few hours. I have some questions regarding decentralization.. bottle necking, spam transactions, but I can ask them in discord I guess. My only fear is that this could be replicated by Chase/BofA etc, but then again, I kind of left them years ago for a reason. I'm sorry, okay. I'm sorry I was a sarcastic asshole. This is by far the closest thing I've wanted in a very long time. Send 1 Nano.. Get 1 Nano. Who would have thought. I'm going back to darts, but before I go... - Can someone send me something on how to set up a node? Walk through maybe? - Mods should pin this. I don't care about worthless internet points. Truth is I'm on my 9th or 10th Reddit account. So, I'll retire this one as soon as I hit send. But I think there is a valuable lesson from my time in this crazy town. I'm not getting rid of my BTC and “going all in for the moonbois”. But I'll definitely be using my Nano. Whenever or wherever I can. Thank you.

Online Cryptocurrency based Casino's Ever since the rise of Bitcoin there are quite some different cryptocurrencies available, for example: Ethereum, Ripple, Dash, Tezos, Litecoin and many many more.For more informatie about cryptocurrencies itself I would kindly suggest to look on the world-famous search-engine ;)One of the advantages of these digital currencies is that you can easily trade (buy or sell) the coins to your foreign currency f..e (USD). You can store your coins in a personal wallet (tip: buy a hardware wallet like a Ledger) to avoid losing your private- keys or getting hacked. Gambling with crypto Trading crypto on an exchange is a bit of gambling already, right?Buying and Selling coins with the intention to accumulate even more coins, or Fiat money with the risk of losing your funds if the trade doesn't end up as expected.There are tons of Bitcoin related gambling website's (a bit similar to online- casino's that only accepted fiat currencies back in the days).These site's mostly offer popular games like dice, roulette, blackjack, bust, poker, baccarat, craps and slots. Even live sportsbetting betting with crypto coins are available. (You can find more on that in our WiKi which is currently WiP). In order to start playing on those websites, you basically only need to visit the website, register a username (or for more security create an account, including a strong password and 2- Factor authentication [2-FA] enabled), select the cryptocurrency of choice and generate the deposit address. You can now send (deposit) coins from your own personal wallet / or from an exchange to the gamble site! Mostly after 1 confirmation on the blockchain your coin's will be visible and you can immediately start to test your luck! Note:
Some website's offer free "faucet" coins, which are often worth just a few dollar cents. Since faucets have been massively exploited by people and you will see less and less faucets.Instead you often receive a bonus for the amount in Bitcoin you wagered, during your game sessions and/or receive a certain % rakeback. Depending on your rank on the platform, the higher the rake back / bonuses will be.
About DonDice Dondice occidentalis is a species of sea slug, therefore the perfect nickname for online gambling. One of the most important things in online gambling is "patience & money- management", don't gamble money that you cannot afford to lose!!Only play for fun so you are not to generate some sort of income this will comes with stress and you will get in troubles very soon.Because of my experience as a (crypto) gambler, I've seen a lot of different website's offering cryptocurrency based gambling games. Some of these website's are legitimate companies that do feel legit, the support is great and the gaming experience in itself is mostly excellent. BUT there are like on any other spot on the internet "scammers" who run these casino's and basically steal your coins or they have a fraudulent algorithm that makes you lose on certain conditions.I had to experience this myself and lost a lot on that particular website, which is still actively being promoted and used by people who have no clue that they are being scammed.
