Latest Bitcoin News / A question about withdrawing BTC
« Last post by administrator on February 18, 2020, 01:51:11 PM »
Recently I became interested in the feasibility to withdraw btc through the atm. I read a lot of information about this, here, for example, this article on changelly.
If you guys have a similar experience, please share it. I'm worried about the anonymity of such a method. And all in all, aren't such things contrary to the idea of cryptocurrency on the whole if you have as much anonymity when working with it as you do with fiat?

Hi there,

for anyone out there who doesn't want to spent too much money on transaction fees, use the biggest and most secure exchange in the world Binance. Binance got a 0.1% transaction fee, but if you use BNB (Binance Coin), it is only 0.05%.
So if you trade 100 x 500$ you only have to pay 50$ transaction fees. When you trade BNB/XX its 25$

And you can also use the referral system from Binance. With this code you have to pay 10% less fees !!
Take care of the pennies, and the pounds will look after themselves

Take our cryptocurrency quiz and find out whether you are an expert or a beginner.
It is interesting to find out if Satoshi Nakamoto is present in BitcoinTalk forum, or else who is the next Satoshi Nakamoto?

Hi, fellow enthusiasts. Ran into this op-ed today, and I found it pretty interesting.

https://cryptopotato.com/the-cia-secretly-owned-crypto-ag-did-they-secretly-create-bitcoin-opinion/

I did see the OP earlier, although I didn't read WaPo article in details because it looks to be demanding paid subscription from everyone now & no way am I paying for this establishment propaganda mouthpiece with rare sparks of good content (he-he)  . However, the main revelation is clear: Crypto AG was secretly owned by CIA & sold equipment to various state actors (who were naive enough to fall for it), keeping lags allowing US & German govts to spy on the supposedly encrypted communications. * imagine our collective shock *   

(Here is some other article on topic; not like Guardian is pure & bright, but at least not paywalled. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/feb/11/crypto-ag-cia-bnd-germany-intelligence-report).

Of course, encryption is pretty broad topic in general. Moreover, lots of tech products were developed or backed by intelligence (look no further than Tor, damn, even Internet in its initial form was an US intelligence product!). However, it's neither unrealistic nor surprising at this point to assume that if intelligence gives out smth to the world, it's not done out of generosity; or that intelligence offices are forwarding the technology to use in their respective states' geopolitical purposes & are okay with the fact this tech might be used against them in the future. Therefore, the math is above "all that", the product must be safe and no way any breaches are left for intl to at least try to control it. (If Edward Snowden's revelations in particular are any indicator).

Here are some particular highlights of the aforementioned op-ed that grabbed my attention (sorry if I'm unwillingly repeating some gospel):

Quote
Bitcoin is based on technology created by the National Security Agency (NSA). The NSA’s Secure Hashing Algorithm 256 (SHA-256) is a lynchpin of Bitcoin Core, the software that turns a computer into a Bitcoin node. SHA-256 is a one-way hashing function that compresses and encrypts a string of any length into a unique 256-bit signature or hash. The original string cannot be determined from the hash. And it’s impossible to guess what SHA-256’s output will be for any given input. So it’s functionally random. You can enter Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address into it and get one hash, then change a single letter and enter it again and get an entirely different hash.

None of this proves the CIA created Bitcoin. The NSA published SHA-256 in 2001. So non-CIA coders could have taken it up and used it to make Bitcoin. But after Crypto AG, it does make one wonder if there’s some kind of back door into SHA-256. Perhaps more incriminating is the meaning of the name Satoshi Nakamoto in Japanese. Nakamoto actually means “Central” or “Middle.” Satoshi means “Enlightened,” “Wise,” or “Intelligent.” These are facts. Satoshi Nakamoto means Central Intelligence. That could be a joke by its non-CIA creators, or it could be the CIA’s calling card.
(can anyone who speaks Japanese confirm please?.. Because... if so, it's one of the greatest levels of unabashed bait/open trolling I saw)

What do you think?

And, if the assumption is legit, what would be the purpose?

p.s. I am not sure if this thread fits in Economic/Speculations thread, although economic consequences of cryptocurrency projects being state-backed from the start, are pretty broad to even imagine - still, it's rather vague subject. I don't think it fits into "Politics" or "News" section either. If anything, mods, feel free to move this thread to another section.

Latest Bitcoin News / Craig Wright: A Very Wrong Person
« Last post by administrator on February 18, 2020, 03:21:17 AM »
The man is delusional. The things he put on his website are laughable: https://craigwright.net/



Creator of Bitcoin – Satoshi Nakamoto.
Eternal student & researcher. nChain Chief Scientist. Lawyer, banker, economist, pastor, coder, investor, mathematician, stats & world curious.
My opinions are my own.



Do you think it might be worth starting a fundraising round with a view to take him to Court to prove he is Satoshi or he should withdraw that statement Creator of Bitcoin – Satoshi Nakamoto as stated on his website?

Or do you think we should all just let him be so he can live in his own fantasy world and be happy/deluded at the same time?
