I am posting this not because I give a shit about his flair, but because I think the BCH community deserves to know about people who try to misinform the public. Fortunately the internet is adept at remembering, and you have to be a fool to lie about history which is stored in version control in multiple places. A note about the commit dates above: They were extracted from 'git log' output, and the timezone was removed (the dates were not adjusted to some common timezone in some way). Github in some cases displays the date differently (probably adjusted according to user's settings, and in some cases where a commit was merged by someone else, it seems to display the date of the merge). So sometimes Github display output differs a bit from the dates above, but all them are more recent than 2 years.
New England New England 6 States Songs: https://www.reddit.com/newengland/comments/er8wxd/new_england_6_states_songs/ NewEnglandcoin Symbol: NENG NewEnglandcoin is a clone of Bitcoin using scrypt as a proof-of-work algorithm with enhanced features to protect against 51% attack and decentralize on mining to allow diversified mining rigs across CPUs, GPUs, ASICs and Android phones. Mining Algorithm: Scrypt with RandomSpike. RandomSpike is 3rd generation of Dynamic Difficulty (DynDiff) algorithm on top of scrypt. 1 minute block targets base difficulty reset: every 1440 blocks subsidy halves in 2.1m blocks (~ 2 to 4 years) 84,000,000,000 total maximum NENG 20000 NENG per block Pre-mine: 1% - reserved for dev fund ICO: None RPCPort: 6376 Port: 6377 NewEnglandcoin has dogecoin like supply at 84 billion maximum NENG. This huge supply insures that NENG is suitable for retail transactions and daily use. The inflation schedule of NengEnglandcoin is actually identical to that of Litecoin. Bitcoin and Litecoin are already proven to be great long term store of value. The Litecoin-like NENG inflation schedule will make NewEnglandcoin ideal for long term investment appreciation as the supply is limited and capped at a fixed number Bitcoin Fork - Suitable for Home Hobbyists NewEnglandcoin core wallet continues to maintain version tag of "Satoshi v0.8.7.5" because NewEnglandcoin is very much an exact clone of bitcoin plus some mining feature changes with DynDiff algorithm. NewEnglandcoin is very suitable as lite version of bitcoin for educational purpose on desktop mining, full node running and bitcoin programming using bitcoin-json APIs. The NewEnglandcoin (NENG) mining algorithm original upgrade ideas were mainly designed for decentralization of mining rigs on scrypt, which is same algo as litecoin/dogecoin. The way it is going now is that NENG is very suitable for bitcoin/litecoin/dogecoin hobbyists who can not , will not spend huge money to run noisy ASIC/GPU mining equipments, but still want to mine NENG at home with quiet simple CPU/GPU or with a cheap ASIC like FutureBit Moonlander 2 USB or Apollo pod on solo mining setup to obtain very decent profitable results. NENG allows bitcoin litecoin hobbyists to experience full node running, solo mining, CPU/GPU/ASIC for a fun experience at home at cheap cost without breaking bank on equipment or electricity. MIT Free Course - 23 lectures about Bitcoin, Blockchain and Finance (Fall,2018) https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLUl4u3cNGP63UUkfL0onkxF6MYgVa04Fn CPU Minable Coin Because of dynamic difficulty algorithm on top of scrypt, NewEnglandcoin is CPU Minable. Users can easily set up full node for mining at Home PC or Mac using our dedicated cheetah software. Research on the first forked 50 blocks on v1.2.0 core confirmed that ASIC/GPU miners mined 66% of 50 blocks, CPU miners mined the remaining 34%. NENG v1.4.0 release enabled CPU mining inside android phones.

There is no boss on NewEnglandcoin. Nobody nor the dev owns NENG. We know a coin is worth nothing if there is no backing from community. Therefore, we as dev do not intend to make decision on this coin solely by ourselves. It is our expectation that NewEnglandcoin community will make majority of decisions on direction of this coin from now on. We as dev merely view our-self as coin creater and technical support of this coin while providing NENG a permanent home at ShorelineCrypto Exchange.

Bitcoin 11 Years - Achievements, Lies, and Bullshit Claims So Far - Tooootally NOT a SCAM !!!!
That's right folks, it's that time again for the annual review of how Bitcoin is going: all of those claims, predictions, promises .... how many have turned out to be true, and how many are completely bogus ??? Please post / link this on Bitcoin (I am banned there for speaking the truth, so I cannot do it) ... because it'a way past time those poor clueless mushrooms were exposed to the truth. Anyway, without further ado, I give you the Bitcoin's Achievements, Lies, and Bullshit Claims So Far ... . Bitcoin Achievements so far:
It has spawned a cesspool of scams (2000+ shit coin scams, plus 100's of other scams, frauds, cons).
Many 1,000's of hacks, thefts, losses.
Illegal Use Cases: illegal drugs, illegal weapons, tax fraud, money laundering, sex trafficking, child pornography, hit men / murder-for-hire, ransomware, blackmail, extortion, and various other kinds of fraud and illicit activity.
Legal Use Cases: Steam Games, Reddit, Expedia, Stripe, Starbucks, 1000's of merchants, cryptocurrency conferences, Ummm ????? The few merchants who "accept Bitcoin" immediately convert it into FIAT after the sale, or require you to sell your coins to BitPay or Coinbase for real money, and will then take that money. Some of the few who actually accept bitcoin haven't seen a customer who needed to pay with bitcoin for the last six months, and their cashiers no longer know how to handle that.
Contributing significantly to Global Warming.
Wastes vasts amounts of electricity on useless, do nothing work.
Exponentially raises electricity prices when big miners move into regions where electricity was cheap.
It’s the first "currency" that is not self-sustainable. It operates at a net loss, and requires continuous outside capital to replace the capital removed by miners to pay their costs. It’s literally a "black hole currency."
It created a new way for people living too far from Vegas to gamble all their life savings away.
Spawned "blockchain technology", a powerful technique that lets incompetent programmers who know almost nothing about databases, finance, programming, or blockchain scam millions out of gullible VC investors, banks, and governments.
Increased China's foreign trade balance by a couple billion dollars per year.
Helped the FBI and other law enforcement agents easily track down hundreds of drug traffickers and drug users.
Wasted thousands if not millions of man-hours of government employees and legislators, in mostly fruitless attempts to understand, legitimize, and regulate the "phenomenon", and to investigate and prosecute its scams.
Rekindled the hopes of anarcho-capitalists and libertarians for a global economic collapse, that would finally bring forth their Mad Max "utopia".
Added another character to Unicode (no, no, not the "poo" 💩 character ... that was my first guess as well 🤣)
Provides an easy way for malware and ransomware criminals to ply their trade and extort hospitals, schools, local councils, businesses, utilities, as well as the general population.

The banks can print money whenever they way, out of thin air, so why can't crypto do the same ???
Central Banks can print money whenever they way, out of thin air, without any consequences or accounting, so why can't crypto do the same ???

2013-11-27: ""What is a Citadel?" you might wonder. Well, by the time Bitcoin became worth 1,000 dollar [27-Nov-2013], services began to emerge for the "Bitcoin rich" to protect themselves as well as their wealth. It started with expensive safes, then began to include bodyguards, and today, "earlies" (our term for early adapters), as well as those rich whose wealth survived the "transition" live in isolated gated cities called Citadels, where most work is automated. Most such Citadels are born out of the fortification used to protect places where Bitcoin mining machines are located. The company known as ASICminer to you is known to me as a city where Mr. Friedman rules as a king.", u/Luka_Magnotta, aka time traveler from the future, 31-Aug-2013, https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/1lfobc/i_am_a_timetraveler_from_the_future_here_to_beg/

Top-60 bitcoin/crypto quotes of the last decade, because reading them makes you feel good, and it feels good to feel good. Also one trading tip
First, number one trading tip for the next decade (in my opinion): XXA/XLM trading pair, price is 5.20 XLM (0.3588 USD). Ixinium XXA is so undervalued right now. Target profit +300% for this year. Backet by precious metals. Precious metals 100% insured by Lloyd's of London. Target price levels for this year because of precious metals base value: 12.0 XLM (0.83 USD, +130.6%) 18.8 XLM (1.30 USD, +261.5%) 23.2 XLM (1.60 USD, +345.9%) Price up since Coinmarketcap listing 7 days ago: 47.26% XXA/XLM trading pair on Stellarport and StellarX exchanges with zero trading fee. It's not too late to become an Ixinium whale :) My favorite bitcoin/crypto quotes, last ten years:
Came into Bitcoin for the short-term dollar gains. Stayed in Bitcoin for the long-term bitcoin gains.
Fiat addicts you to spending. Bitcoin addicts you to saving.
There are 1,900x more dollars in existence today than there was less than a hundred years ago. Bitcoin has no top because fiat has no bottom.
Most investors would be better off if they lost the password to their account and couldn’t log in for a few years.
How I learned to stop worrying and love the bear market: Value your wealth in bitcoin not fiat.
If I had a Bitcoin for every time someone asked me if I know who Satoshi is... I'd be Satoshi.
Every second bitcoin stays out of the spotlight, is another second we get to build unopposed. We can't take this time for granted.
You can't be excited about Bitcoin and fear the bear market. It's like being excited for Christmas but fearing winter. The bear market is a natural part of Bitcoin's mass adoption.
Crypto is the only money that works on the internet. But it's also the only money that works in space. It's really expensive to bring gold bars to Mars.
The fact that your normie friends don't think Bitcoin is cool yet is the reason why there is still massive upside potential.
Feel free to print (fiat money) as much as you need, as I am already all in crypto.
Satoshi walks in to a bar. Nobody knows.
Fiat supply: unlimited. Gold supply: unknown. Bitcoin supply: 21 million.
Most people still don’t know anything about Bitcoin except its price. But they don’t know why Bitcoin has a price in the first place. Hence the skepticism. When you don’t know why something has a price, it is impossible to understand how much it can really be worth.
There can never be more than 17 million people who own 1 full bitcoin. But in practice, there will be far fewer.
Internet allowed you to never have to go to the library. Bitcoin will allow you to never have to go to the bank.
Google's CEO is Indian
Nokia's CEO is Indian Adobe's CEO is Indian Amazon's BOD is Indian MasterCard's CEO is Indian Microsoft's CEO is Indian Pepsico's CEO was Indian indra nooyi Nasa has 58% Indian employees Do something towards $Btc bans in India! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
When you trade trends, you can be the last person to join the trend & first person to leave the trend & you can still outperform everyone else in long term simply because others will keep guessing the tops & bottoms while you will keep riding confirmed trends.
You don't need to fomo into positions, if you accumulate early.
If your "financial advisor" doesn't advise you to buy crypto, fire 'em.
Bitcoin doesn't care about your feelings. It also doesn't care about your gender, ethnicity, sexual preference or religion. Bitcoin just is.
Want to prove to an investor that your crypto product is needed? Get people to use it. It is really hard to argue with usage.
Is it possible to be a BTC maximalist and be Vegan? Asking for a friend..
If you think that bitcoin is not going to the mainstream, think again.
Most people don’t know what money is. This is why Bitcoin is still underrated. First, learn what money is. Then, you will be able to leverage the massive opportunity that is Bitcoin.
If you think the people in charge know exactly what they’re doing, do nothing & continue on with your life. If you think those in charge may NOT actually be as smart as they want us to think, buy a little Bitcoin. The status quo is a bet on humans, but Bitcoin is a bet on math.
Bitcoin is only risky to those who don’t understand it.
Short term volatility doesn’t phase long term investors.
If you manage your risk, your profits will take care of itself. If you don't, your parents will take care of you.
For every person in the world, there are only 0.00225764 bitcoins.
If you did your research, this bear market was expected. Bear or bull market, it’s business as usual for true Bitcoiners.
For Bitcoin to succeed, the whole world doesn't need to understand its value proposition. Those who do will profit from its monetization. Those who don't will naturally adopt this better money.
Economic reality imposes itself onto the world whether you're aware of it or not.
This is not financial advice. This is life advice. Buy Bitcoin.
If Banks & Fiat are horse carriages, then Bitcoin isn't merely cars, it's fucking teleportation.
How Bitcoin enables global prosperity:
Bitcoin makes you future-oriented Bitcoin makes delaying gratification easier Bitcoin makes saving & capital accumulation easier Bitcoin makes investing easier Bitcoin makes global trade easier Bitcoin makes advancing civilization easier
Bitcoin is the ultimate marshmallow experiment. People who are able to hodl for longer will tend to have better life outcomes.
Other than your human time, Bitcoin is the scarcest thing on earth. Human time will become more abundant as life expectancy increases. Bitcoin, however, will only become scarcer.
The energy cost of Bitcoin mining will pale in comparison to the improvements in the world’s productivity and prosperity that are enabled by Bitcoin.
Pros of bear market:
-You can buy more Bitcoin -Devs more productive than ever -Weak hands driven out+hodler base strengthened -Focus on fundamentals, not short-term price -Overvalued shitcoins deflated -Critical Infrastructure being built out, making next bull run even fiercer
The more productive we are during the bear market, the harder Bitcoin will pump in the next bull market. Ignore short-term price action. Focus on Bitcoin fundamentals.
Bitcoin bear market is the best time for buying, learning and staying miles ahead of the normies who will once again be late to the game and will buy the top.
Before you invest in Bitcoin, invest in educating yourself about Bitcoin. Understanding Bitcoin will make your conviction much stronger and enable you to maximize your gains.
There are 2 ways you can adopt Bitcoin:
Early on & willingly-> result: allows you to capture upside as Bitcoin grows & becomes widely used or
Much later & not having another choice-> result: failing to capture most upside from Bitcoin's monetization.
The choice is yours.
The overwhelming majority of highly intelligent people I talk to still have no idea why Bitcoin is valuable. We are extremely early. The ability to identify opportunity before others and take advantage of the information asymmetry is key.
Bitcoin will succeed with or without you. Don’t be left behind.
In the 90s people couldn’t imagine that the Internet would replace newspapers, TV, phone calls, shops & many other things. Today, people can't imagine Bitcoin becoming mass adopted money. Bitcoin will do to money what Internet did to information. And money is a way bigger market.
If every millionaire in the US wanted to have just 1 bitcoin they wouldn't be able to. There will always be fewer bitcoins than there are millionaires in the US (let alone the whole world). Ignore this at your own risk.
The corporations & institutions that stand to lose from Bitcoin adoption are made up of individuals who stand to benefit massively from Bitcoin adoption. Realizing that every group or entity is made up of self-motivated individuals is key to realizing why Bitcoin will succeed.
Bitcoin self-selects for people with:
* Low time preference * Long attention span * Commitment * Authenticity * Patience * Persistence * Ability to focus * Ability to go against the mainstream Bitcoin is a marathon, not a sprint.
If you don’t have a deep understanding of:
What money is
Functions of money
Money properties that fulfill its various functions
Then don’t you dare criticize Bitcoin.
Bitcoin doesn’t care:
- what color you are - what sex you are - what age you are - what your religion is - who your parents are - which university/school you went to - who you’re friends with - how expensive your lawyer is Bitcoin cannot discriminate.
You chase money every single day. You stress over money all your life. You worship money.
But you have no idea why money is valuable. Money controls your life because you have no understanding of what it is. Once you ask yourself “What is money?”, Bitcoin will make sense.
Satoshi Nakamoto deserves:
- Nobel Prize in Economics - Nobel Peace Prize - Nobel Prize in Physics But thankfully the last thing Satoshi needs is the validation of the establishment.
Bitcoin is doing better than corporations & altcoins though it never had:
- CEO - Marketing - Salaries - ICO - Partnerships - Headquarters - Customer support Bitcoin is an emergent superorganism. Members contribute according to their ability, driven by passion more than greed.
July 2011 - $31
- “Damn, I should've bought bitcoin earlier” Apr 2013 - $266 - “Damn, I should've bought bitcoin earlier” Nov 2013 - $1,242 - “Damn, I should've bought bitcoin earlier” Dec 2017 - $19,891 - “Damn, I should've bought bitcoin earlier” 2022-2023 - ... - “Damn..”
Successful crypto trading boils down to correctly predicting how the whales will torture the normies next.
Bitcoin doesn’t wait for anyone. It’s up to you if you want to learn this the hard way.
Percentage of world using the Internet in 1995 = 0.4%
Percentage of world using the Internet in 2019 = 58.8% Bitcoin is to money what the Internet is to information. Percentage of world using Bitcoin in 2019 = 0.4% If you thought you are late to Bitcoin, think again.
I didn't choose the dollar.
I didn't choose the euro. I didn't choose the pound. I didn't choose the yen. I didn't choose the ruble. I didn't choose fractional reserve banking. I didn't choose central banks. I didn't choose quantitative easing. I choose Bitcoin.

Which one will the next generation choose? Many of these wisdom quotes are from the author of the new book called “This ₿ook Will Save You Time”, and he's donating all of the proceeds from the book sales to a Bitcoin developer.
In the past weeks I heard a lot pros and cons about IOTA, many of them I believe were not true (I'll explain better). I would like to start a serious discussion about IOTA and help people to get into it. Before that I'll contribute with what I know, most things that I will say will have a source link providing some base content.
The pros and cons that I heard a lot is listed below, I'll discuss the items marked with *. Pros
Many users claim that the network infinitely scales, that with more transactions on the network the faster it gets. This is not entirely true, that's why we are seeing the network getting congested (pending transactions) at the moment (12/2017). The network is composed by full-nodes (stores all transactions), each full-node is capable of sending transactions direct to the tangle. An arbitrary user can set a light-node (do not store all transactions, therefore a reduced size), but as it does not stores all transactions and can't decide if there are conflicting transactions (and other stuff) it needs to connect to a full-node (bitifinex node for example) and then request for the full-node to send a transaction to the tangle. The full-node acts like a bridge for a light-node user, the quantity of transactions at the same time that a full-node can push to the tangle is limited by its brandwidth. What happens at the moment is that there are few full-nodes, but more important than that is: the majority of users are connected to the same full-node basically. The full-node which is being used can't handle all the requested transactions by the light-nodes because of its brandwidth. If you are a light-node user and is experiencing slow transactions you need to manually select other node to get a better performance. Also, you need to verify that the minimum weight magnitude (difficulty of the Hashcash Proof of Work) is set to 14 at least. The network seems to be fine and it scales, but the steps an user has to make/know are not friendly-user at all. It's necessary to understand that the technology envolved is relative new and still in early development. Do not buy iota if you haven't read about the technology, there is a high chance of you losing your tokens because of various reasons and it will be your own fault. You can learn more about how IOTA works here. There are some upcoming solutions that will bring the user-experience to a new level, The UCL Wallet (expected to be released at this month, will talk about that soon and how it will help the network) and the Nelson CarrIOTA (this week) besides the official implementations to come in december.
We all know that currently (2017) IOTA depends on the coordinator because the network is still in its infancy and because of that it is considered centralized by the majority of users. The coordinator are several full-nodes scattered across the world run by the IOTA foundation. It creates periodic Milestones (zero value transactions which reference valid transactions) which are validated by the entire network. The coordinator sets the general direction for the tangle growth. Every node verifies that the coordinator is not breaking consensus rules by creating iotas out of thin air or approving double-spendings, nodes only tells other nodes about transactions that are valid, if the Coordinator starts issuing bad Milestones, nodes will reject them. The coordinator is optional since summer 2017, you can choose not implement it in your full-node, any talented programmer could replace Coo logic in IRI with Random Walk Monte Carlo logic and go without its milestones right now. A new kind of distributed coordinator is about to come and then, for the last, its completely removal. You can read more about the coordinator here and here.
These are blockchain-based cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin) that has miners to guarantee its security. Satoshi Nakamoto states several times in the Bitcoin whitepaper that "The system is secure as long as honest nodes collectively control more CPU power than any cooperating group of attacker nodes". We can see in Blockchain.info that nowadays half of the total hashpower in Bitcoin is controlled by 3 companies (maybe only 1 in the future?). Users must trust that these companies will behave honestly and will not use its 50%> hashpower to attack the network eventually. With all that said it's reasonable to consider the IOTA network more decentralized (even with the coordinator) than any mining-blockchain-based cryptocurrency You can see a comparison between DAG cryptocurrencies here
Some partnerships of IOTA foundation with big companies were well known even when they were not officialy published. Some few examples of confirmed partnerships are listed below, others cofirmed partnerships can be seem in the link Partnerships with big companies at the pros section.
So what's up with all alarming in social media about IOTA Foundation faking partnerships with big companies like Microsoft and Cisco? At Nov. 28th IOTA Foundation announced the Data Marketplace with 30+ companies participating. Basically it's a place for any entity sell data (huge applications, therefore many companies interested), at time of writing (11/12/2017) there is no API for common users, only companies in touch with IOTA Foundation can test it. A quote from Omkar Naik (Microsoft worker) depicted on the Data Marketplace blog post gave an idea that Microsoft was in a direct partnership with IOTA. Several news websites started writing headlines "Microsoft and IOTA launches" (The same news site claimed latter that IOTA lied about partnership with Microsoft) when instead Microsoft was just one of the many participants of the Data Marketplace. Even though it's not a direct partnership, IOTA and Microsoft are in close touch as seen in IOTA Microsoft and Bosch meetup december 12th, Microsoft IOTA meetup in Paris 14th and Microsoft Azure adds 5 new Blockchain partners (may 2016). If you join the IOTA Slack channel you'll find out that there are many others big companies in close touch with IOTA like BMW, Tesla and other companies. This means that right now there are devs of IOTA working directly with scientists of these companies to help them integrate IOTA on their developments even though there is no direct partnership published, I'll talk more about the use cases soon.
We are excited to partner with IOTA foundation and proud to be associated with its new data marketplace initiative... - Omkar Naik
IOTA's use cases
Every cryptocurrency is capable of being a way to exchange goods, you pay for something using the coin token and receive the product. Some of them are more popular or have faster transactions or anonymity while others offers better scalablity or user-friendness. But none of them (except IOTA) are capable of transactioning information with no costs (fee-less transactions), in an securely form (MAM) and being sure that the network will not be harmed when it gets more adopted (scales). These characteristics open the gates for several real world applications, you probably might have heard of Big Data and how data is so important nowadays.
Data sets grow rapidly - in part because they are increasingly gathered by cheap and numerous information-sensing Internet of things devices such as mobile devices, aerial (remote sensing), software logs, cameras, microphones, radio-frequency identification (RFID) readers and wireless sensor networks.
It’s just the beginning of the data period. Data is going to be so important for human life in the future. So we are now just starting. We are a big data company, but compared to tomorrow, we are nothing. - Jack Ma (Alibaba)
There are enormous quantities of wasted data, often over 99% is lost to the void, that could potentially contain extremely valuable information if allowed to flow freely in data streams that create an open and decentralized data lake that is accessible to any compensating party. Some of the biggest corporations of the world are purely digital like Google, Facebook and Amazon. Data/information market will be huge in the future and that's why there so many companies interested in what IOTA can offer. There are several real world use cases being developed at the moment, many of them if successful will revolutionize the world. You can check below a list of some of them.
Not having your wallet set up properly (min weight 14, etc.)
Problems that could be easily avoided with a better understand of the network/wallet or with a better wallet that could handle these issues. As I explained before, some problems during the "congestion" of the network could be simply resolved if stuff were more user-friendly, this causes many users storing their iotas on exchanges which is not safe either. The upcoming (dec 2017) UCL Wallet will solve most of these problems. It will switch between nodes automatically and auto-reattach transactions for example (besides other things). You can have full a overview of it here and here. Also, the upcoming Nelson CarrIOTA will help on automatic peer discovery for users setup their nodes more easily.
IOTA Vulnerability issue
On sept 7th 2017 a team from MIT reported a cryptographic issue on the hash function Curl. You can see the full response of IOTA members below.
Funds were never in danger as such scenarios depicted on the Neha's blogpost were not pratically possible and the arguments used on the blogpost had'nt fundamentals, all the history you can check by yourself on the responses. Later it was discovered that the whole Neha Narula's team were envolved in other concurrent cryptocurrency projects Currently IOTA uses the relatively hardware intensive NIST standard SHA-3/Keccak for crucial operations for maximal security. Curl is continuously being audited by more cryptographers and security experts. Recenlty IOTA Foundation hired Cybercrypt, the world leading lightweight cryptography and security company from Denmark to take the Curl cryptography to its next maturation phase.
It took me a couple of days to gather the informations presented, I wanted it to make easier for people who want to get into it. It might probably have some mistakes so please correct me if I said something wrong. Here are some useful links for the community.
This is my IOTA donation address, in case someone wants to donate I will be very thankful. I truly believe in this project's potential. I9YGQVMWDYZBLHGKMTLBTAFBIQHGLYGSAGLJEZIV9OKWZSHIYRDSDPQQLTIEQEUSYZWUGGFHGQJLVYKOBWAYPTTGCX
This is a donation address, if you want to do the same you might pay attention to some important details:
Create a seed for only donation purposes.
Generate a address and publish it for everyone.
If you spend any iota you must attach a new address to the tangle and refresh your donation address published before to everyone.
If someone sends iota to your previous donation address after you have spent from it you will probably lose the funds that were sent to that specific address.
You can visualize how addresses work in IOTA here and here.
This happens because IOTA uses Winternitz one-time signature to become quantum resistent. Every time you spend iota from a address, part of the private key of that specific address is revealed. This makes easier for attackers to steal that address balance. Attackers can search if an address has been reused on the tangle explorer and try to brute force the private key since they already know part of it.
This is a compilation of everything suspicious I found with Quadriga. Please let me know if there’s anything incorrect or missing Early History (2013-2017)
QuadrigaCX started in 2013 and made history by being the first crypto exchange to register with FINTRAC and accept gold bullion deposits. By 2015, Quadriga became Canada’s largest crypto exchange. So far, so good.
In March 2015, Quadriga attempted to go public and a month later, announced its intention to install Bitcoin ATMs across Canada. Both these plans were eventually aborted.
Even though Quadriga never listed, it started selling its shares over-the-counter. In Sep 2015, Quadriga stopped publishing audits. In March 2016, Quadriga was banned from selling shares after the BCSC issued a cease trade order (CTO) for not submitting an audit.
Around the same time, 3 of Quadriga’s 5 directors (Anthony Milewski, Lovie Horner, Bill Filtness) and CFO (Natasha Tsai) all resigned. Sometime in 2016, Director and Co-founder Michael Patryn resigned. This left Gerald Cotten ("Gerry") as the only remaining director.
Evidence shows that Michael Patryn has used several aliases (including Omar Dhanani) and is a convicted identity thief
Quadriga has changed its business address several times. It started as a Vancouver-based exchange, with its addresses changing from Commercial Dr, Nelson St, and Homer St. Eventually, the address moved to Toronto. None of these were physical office addresses, but instead a mail forwarding address.
The Terms of Service on Quadriga’s website have always suspiciously stated that:
All account fundings are considered to be purchases of QuadrigaCX Bucks. These are units that are used for the purposes of purchasing Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. QuadrigaCX Bucks are NOT Canadian Dollars. Any notation of $, CAD, or USD refers to an equivalent unit in QuadrigaCX Bucks, which exist for the sole purpose of buying and selling Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. QuadrigaCX is NOT a financial institution, bank, credit union, trust, or deposit business. We DO NOT take Deposits. We exist solely for the purposes of buying and selling cryptocurrencies.
Banking troubles throughout 2018
In late Dec 2017, Jose Reyes (CEO of Billerfy and Costodian Inc, Quadriga’s payment processor) moved over a million dollars from Quadriga’s account and into his own personal CIBC account
Shortly after, CIBC froze these funds and tried reaching out to Gerry, who refused to speak with them
All throughout 2018, Quadriga’s fiat withdrawal times took 2-3 months to complete. Quadriga kept citing the CIBC freeze as the reason. What’s very suspicious is how Quadriga constantly lied to customers with promises such as “the withdrawal backlog will be cleared in 1 week” or “your funds have been processed” when in fact they were months away from doing so.
Period leading up to Gerry’s death
On Nov 27, Gerry filed his will just 12 days before his death. He left a plane, two houses, and $100,000 for the care of his two Chihuahuas.
Gerry had a plan for all his personal affairs in the event of his death but he had no contingency plan for $180M CAD of crypto in cold storage that only he had the private keys to?
India is a suspicious place to travel, considering Gerry had a medical condition and considering how easy it is to get a death certificate there
After a severe bear market, most crypto businesses have been struggling and laying off staff. It’s odd that Gerry, who has no history of philanthropy, chooses to donate money. Especially when his exchange is having so many banking troubles.
The organization that built the orphanage states on their website that they take care of all construction. There was zero need for Gerry to go to India
A reddit post shows that the orphanage exists, although it’s a mystery where the image came from
Bitcoin fell 50% in Nov – the worst monthly decline in 7 years. Gerry’s death occurred shortly after
Gerry’s death and announcement
On Dec 9, Gerry died in India “due to complications of Crohn’s disease.” However, there is a low probability that Crohn’s disease is fatal, especially at the young age of 30
Just a couple days later, a reddit post indicated someone bought 300 BTC on Quadriga at a 25% premium and moved the funds out of the exchange
It took Quadriga over a month to announce Gerry’s death on Jan 14th.
Over the following 2 weeks, Quadriga continued to assure customers that “our hot wallets are being filled and withdrawals are going slower but will complete.”
On Jan 28th, Quadriga takes down their website. Initially they said “an upgrade is being performed,” then the message changed to “site maintenance” before being changed to “Quadriga has filed for creditor protection” on Jan 31st.
In the media, Gerry stated several times that Quadriga uses multi-sig cold storage. This is where 2/3 or 3/5 people can be used to authorize a transaction. Clearly no multisig was used if only Gerry had the private keys.
Formal Active Investigations
A preliminary court hearing was held on Feb 5, 2019 where the Canadian Apex Court appointed Ernst and Young (EY) as Monitor to further investigate into the matter. EY has stated that its an extraordinary challenge to decipher Quadriga's finances, as the company has no accounting records (and did not systematically track incoming and outgoing payments) nor a bank account in its name.
The Better Business Bureau (BBB), which gives Quadriga an F-rating, launched an investigation in Dec 2018
Quadriga has substantial personal information on its customers, including SIN, driver's license, and banking details. Given Quadriga's murky history, customers may have their identity at risk and should setup up credit report and identity theft alerts with either Equifax or TransUnion.
￼ To view this email as a web page, go here. ￼November, 2019 Bitcoin has found acceptance under a key average and may see an extended move to the downside. The top cryptocurrency on Sunday closed below the 50-week moving average. The newfound MA resistance is now seen at $7,238 and bitcoin is currently priced at $7,130 on Bitstamp. In the past BTC has suffered deeper losses following a violation of the 50-week MA, according to popular fundamental and technical analyst Nunya Bizniz. In May 2018, for instance, bitcoin fell below the 50-week MA at $7,619 and remained below the average for 12 months. By December 2018 the price was near $3,100 . Before that, the drop below the crucial average support at $535 in August 2014 was followed by a deeper sell-off to $152 by January 2015. It could be different this time, of course, as markets may put a bid under the cryptocurrency ahead of the reward halving due in six months. The reward granted to Bitcoin miners for adding a block to the blockchain will be reduced from the current 12.5 BTC, down to 6.25 BTC following the halving. In the past, the cryptocurrency has put on a good show in the months leading up to the event. Note that the process is repeated every four years. BTC: Price: $7,050 | Market cap: $129.27 Billion | 24-Hr Volume: $25.50 Billion Trend: Bearish Bitcoin has bounced from six-month lows near $6,500 reached on Monday and needs to rise further by more than $1,000 over the next three days to confirm invalidate bearish pressure, according to popular analyst Willy Woo. A quick move above $8,300 looks unlikely, however, since markets seldom witness a V-shaped recovery. This is because investors battered during the bear market tend to wait on the sidelines and re-enter market only after the asset shows signs of bottoming out. Also, short-term technical indicators continue to report bearish conditions. Notably, the 5- and 10-day averages continue to trend south and will likely cap corrective rallies. All-in-all, bitcoin is likely to trade in the range of $7,500 to $6,500 for the next few days. Long-term trend: Neutral BTC's failure to repeat history by picking a strong bid six months ahead of the reward halving has neutralized the bullish outlook. That said, the recent slide is viewed as a buying opportunity by prominent analysts like Joseph Young and Josh Rager. A bullish reversal would be confirmed if and when BTC breaks higher from the five-month falling channel. MATIC On A Major Rise MATIC: Price: $0.020 | MCAP: $54.8 million | 24-Hr Volume: $63.3 million Short-term trend: Overbought MATIC continues to rise, up 32 percent on the day, according to data provided by Messari. The rise can likely be attributed to the announcements onov. 18 of an upcoming "action-packed arcade-style racing game" housed in the decentraland metaverse. Market conditions have hit overbought territory, illustrated by the daily RSI above 70, so expect some profit taking from savvy traders in the short-term, with a pullback to $0.018 (prior resistance). Long-term trend: Bull potential MATIC has broken its long-term downtrend courtesy of Nov. 25's rise above $0.018, on the back of strong volume that resembles a reversal profile. Caution is warranted however, as a retest and then bounce from the area mentioned above is required for a continuation.

Summary of how Wikileaks and Assange were compromised between Oct and Nov 2016 (From Endchan screenshot)
Link to image http://i.imgur.com/12sDLZA.png Link to mempool graph http://i.imgur.com/JZbFHri.jpg Unfortunately endchan POLAK forum (unmoderated) was hacked in December and all threads were lost. I still have a lot saved from the png anon references, but a ton of info was lost in the hack and lost because archive.is is compromised and didn't save a lot of very interesting stuff. The png had an archive of a few threads with a ton of info regarding how to find the keys. I only became aware of this effort in late november, so I have no connection to any 'groups' I simply spectated. EDIT: Here's some good info. This is all I could find for internet outage on dec 19, so something definitely did happen. This doesn't say it was very large, but still. Pretty similar to the well documented one that happened on Oct 17 though. Also, here is a megaupload link for docs.png which contains a lot of threads that are now lost that have a lot of good info on some instructions on how to decode the blockchain to find the files. Here is the summary of what reportedly happened to Wikileaks and Assange beginning on Oct 17 ending Dec 19. The summary was written Dec 21.
TLDR: Blockchain has backups from since 2013. It also has checksum hashes and upload proofs for all files. There is a lot of stuff in there that triggers xkeyscore or echelon and is virtually impossible to share or talk about. Three months have been spent trying to teach others how to recreate the steps. There is a noticable pattern. Group finds it, tries teaching others how to do it, then everything is deleted and everyone goes silent. Then a new group finds the breadcrumbs and starts over. It's not clear what happened yesterday or what will happen the next, but there are people from all over the world investigating. At this point there is no part of the internet where it is allowed. Oct 17: Strange Activity is noticed at the embassy. First responders investigate, periscope is killed, twitter goes full Orwell, archive.org is changed to no longer save sites properly. Something that is instantly deleted is posted several times on plebbit, halfchan, fullchan, onion links and darkweb. It is all wiped. People regroup in several places since there is no way to post without threads getting deleted or sites going down. A lot end up here (endchan). Oct 21: As the director of Wikileaks is dying a huge ddos takes down most sites. Blockchain is attacked. Lots of stuff gets deleted. Oct 24: Someone finds Wikileaks backups in the blockchain and posts instructions and code to decode the data. Oct 27: The deletions get too severe. Sites begin being flooded with illegal content or going down. People create their own private channel to discuss progress. The keys and all hidden data in the blockchain are found. The group pushes the information into a few cryptocurrencies. Blockchain is flooded. Mempool graphs have a giant spike on Oct 27. Bitcoin soft fork begins. Onion threads with the info get instantly wiped. Everyone involved go silent except a couple people. This group is called "group 1" and finding the keys is called first impact. Late Oct: People realize that unlocking the data gets you Xkeyscore'd, cutting off your internet, attacking sites until the stuff is deleted. Early Nov: Focus changes to teaching others how to find the information on airgapped computers to avoid detection and sacrificing public channels of communication. Threads that have progress start being flooded with illegal content every morning. Nov 8: Wikileaks.org begins changing. Some files are deleted. Checksum hashes no longer match old backups. At some point in Nov, the IRS asks bitcoin to give them the identities of all transactions. Copies of the blockchain start showing 'undecodable' or empty transactions not seen before. Mid Nov: 'Group 2' doxxes the people pretending to be Wikileaks and tried to spread more detailed instructions for getting the files. Posts did not last more than a few minutes. It seems like they tried to push to blockchain but apparently the data didn't make it in. Group 2 goes silent. This day is second impact. Nov 25: Third impact. Files are found by a third group that doesn't seem to be American. They post instructions all over the place, but nothing lasts more than a few hours. They tried to encode the data into the blockchain but it's not clear if it made it in. This day is the second spike on the mempool graph. Some point after this, people agree to stop using the endchan thread because the admins keep having to deal with too much illegal content flooding and the site going down. It becomes clear that any channel used to discuss this is 'sacrificed', in other words, it starts going down a lot, mods are flipped, deletion, illegal spams, etc. This[endchan] thread is created for this reason. You can figure out what is special about this thread if you read the logs in the png. Most progress after this point is on logless channels on the darkweb. Most of these eventually go down. The endchan thread is eventually locked. Everyone that posted is blocked to this day. It is then deleted. Dec: Planning for d-day begins. All holding groups spend all of december teaching others how to find the files. Mid Dec: Someone alledgedly speaking on behaf of applebaum posts links to code he wrote to find and repair keys in memory. New teams are told to use it. Obama talks of cyber war with Russia. Dec 18: Files are found in Japan. A meshnet using PS3s is used to spread the files, but this doesn't last long. Dec 19: D-Day. Shit is happening all over the world. Many ISPs, torrent sites, and other sites go down. Wikileaks releases new insurance file. UK, EC, and US insurance files from before no longer show up on wikileaks.org unless you have IPs from specific countries. One of the biggest internet outages in history and I cannot find a single news site that reported it. Holding groups go silent. Some people try to regroup with their old teams.

What’s happening this morning? Things are pretty quiet (once again). The China Aug eco data came in soft and that weighed on Asian equities and is placing mild pressure on Eurozone stocks and US S&P futures (S&P futures are down only 1-2 points). Most of the major Asian indices ended lower although there were some pockets of green: TPX -0.32%, NKY -0.29%, Hang Seng -0.42%, SHCOMP -0.38%, Taiwan +0.2%, KOSPI +0.74%, Australia - 0.1%, and India was flattish. Korea was bolstered by tech (Samsung Electronics +1.37%, Hynix +1.45%, LG Display +2.74%, etc.). The major Eurozone indices are trading off small; the SXPP basic resources index is down >1% off China but otherwise there aren’t any other major sources of softness while media and retail are upside standouts (retail is being helped by the Next PLC news). The SNB tweaked its FX language in a slightly more hawkish direction, calling the CHF “highly valued” instead of “significantly overvalued”. Overall the broader macro narrative isn’t shifting dramatically despite China (in fact some see a silver lining in the data as this could make the gov’t more inclined to pursue growth-friendly policies). There were a ton of tax articles in the US but the outlook for that topic remains unchanged (the GOP blueprint is due out during the week of 9/25). The week’s last major (scheduled) catalyst hits at 8:30amET this morning (US Aug CPI) while next week’s main focus is the FOMC decision (Wed 9/20; the messaging around a Dec hike may be more hawkish than the market currently assumes).
Calendar for Thurs 9/14 – the focus will be on the BOE rate decision (7amET), the US CPI for Aug (8:30amET), Thy God Emperor Trump ’s trip to Florida, some analyst meetings (ANSS and GKOS), earnings (JBL and ORCL after the close), and sell-side conferences (Goldman Communacopia, Morgan Stanley Laguna, and RBC Industrials). o US CPI Thurs morning – the latest leg of the SPX rally has been spurred by proreflation forces as risk sentiment welcomed firmer inflation numbers (in China, India, Sweden, and the UK). Thus the US CPI (due out Thurs morning 8/14 at 8:30amET) needs to be at least inline (the St is modeling headline +0.3% M/M and core +0.2% M/M) and mild upside would likely be a net positive. Too much inflation though risks unsettling sentiment and if the Thurs CPI causes 12/13 FOMC FF hike odds to spike back >50% that would likely be met w/equity pressure.
Calendar for Fri 9/15 – the focus will be on the Eurozone trade balance for Jul (5amET), the US Empire Manufacturing index for Sept (8:30amET), US retail sales for Aug (8:30amET), US industrial production for Aug (9:15amET), US Michigan confidence numbers for Sept (10amET), US business inventories for Jul (10amET), and sell-side conferences (Morgan Stanley Laguna).
Top Headlines for Thursday
Economic data/monetary policy recap for Thurs 9/14 – there was a lot of data out this morning. The China data was soft and as a result JPMorgan is revising lower Q3 GDP forecasts for the country (see the full note: http://bit.ly/2x226Wk). IP for Aug came in at +6% (vs. JPM and the St +6.6%), retail sales rose 10.1% (vs. JPM +10.2% and the St +10.5%), and FAI climbed 7.8% YTD as of Aug (vs. JPM +8.3% and the St +8.2%). We revise down our current quarter growth forecast to 6.2%q/q saar (previously 6.6%q/q saar), or 6.7%oya (previously 6.8%oya). Meanwhile, we maintain our 4Q17 forecast at 6.2%q/q saar (or 6.6% in yoy terms), and the full-year growth forecast stays unchanged at 6.8%. Elsewhere on the economic front, Australian jobs data for Aug was solid although the UR held steady at 5.6% (http://bit.ly/2jpRH3x) and Eurozone new auto registration growth accelerated in Aug to +5.6% (vs. +2.7% in Jul). The SNB tweaked its CHF language and said the recent weakening "is helping to reduce, to some extent, the significant overvaluation of the currency" (previously the SNB has lamented the CHF’s “significant overvaluation” http://bit.ly/2eXuwIC). ECB’s Jan Smets said Eurozone inflation appears to have bottomed out (http://nyti.ms/2f8nynT). Greece said it would exceed prior primary budget surplus targets for this year (http://reut.rs/2x2RxUq). o What Thy God Emperor Trump Can Do to Prevent the Next Crash – the Fed doesn’t do enough to restrain out-of-control prices for stocks, houses, and other assets. http://nyti.ms/2eX7IsC o Fed officials admit they’ve lost some inflation credibility – a Bloomberg article recounts recent Fed remarks about how the institution’s credibility on inflation has started to weaken at the margin. Bloomberg. https://bloom.bg/2y0yyru
Bipartisanship in Washington – can it last? Frustrated by the failure to pass repeal/replace, Thy God Emperor Trump has displayed a willingness to work w/Democrats. o Thy God Emperor Trump is extremely eager for a “win” after months of failure and if that requires him to work w/Democrats, so be it. “We learned this summer that keeping 50 or 52 Republicans (in the Senate) is not something that’s reliable,” Marc Short, Thy God Emperor Trump ’s liaison to Congress, told reporters this week. Reuters http://reut.rs/2x3yn0L o Thy God Emperor Trump prioritizes legislative wins over party purity – the new dynamic is creating uncertainty within the GOP ahead of the upcoming tax and budget battles. WSJ. http://on.wsj.com/2eWBspz o Fresh off striking a three-month fiscal deal with “Chuck and Nancy”, Thy God Emperor Trump agreed Wed night to work w/Democrats on a DACA/Dreamers compromise. Thy God Emperor Trump ’s outreach to Dems on immigration represents a “major political gamble” as this topic was the centerpiece of his campaign. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), an immigration hard-liner and early Thy God Emperor Trump supporter, wrote that if reports of a potential immigration deal are accurate, the president’s “base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair. No promise is credible” – Washington Post http://wapo.st/2y81heI
Taxes – Republicans are pushing forward w/an aggressive tax timeline (a blueprint is due out during the week of 9/25) but the overall plan remains inchoate. o “Thy God Emperor Trump urges quick action on tax plan that’s still in pieces” – the NYT notes that while there is a lot of eagerness for action on the tax front, Republicans are far from aligned on the details and a path through Congress isn’t apparent at the moment. NYT http://nyti.ms/2jpuApI o GOP “shudders” as Thy God Emperor Trump courts Dems on taxes – Republican leaders in Congress are pursuing a delicate tax strategy premised on passing a partisan bill and thus Thy God Emperor Trump ’s flirtation with “Chuck and Nancy” risks upending the effort. Politico http://politi.co/2h4gUfr o Thy God Emperor Trump signals openness to upper-income tax hikes in a bid to secure Democratic support - Thy God Emperor Trump on Wednesday expressed a willingness to raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans. Thy God Emperor Trump met w/lawmakers on Wed and “repeated his willingness to raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans several times”– Roll Call http://bit.ly/2y724fS o How low could the corporate tax rate go? A new study finds that eliminating all corporate tax breaks could only move the rate from ~35% now down to 26% - Washington Post. http://wapo.st/2vU7zNy
Paul Ryan speculation heats up – his job as Speaker seems secure but people are beginning to talk – The Hill. http://bit.ly/2x3NlUm
Healthcare struggles to advance in Congress – a bipartisan initiative to pass legislative aimed at fixing the ACA (rather than replacing it) was dealt a setback on Wed as two groups of Senators released the details of diametrically opposed plans. WSJ. http://on.wsj.com/2waLtdO
Russia’s war games sparks NATO alarm – Russia and Belarus are holding massive war games in what will be the largest display of Russian military power since the end of the Cold War. NATO and the West in general are worried that Russia is moving far more troops into Belarus than it intends to withdraw, establishing a permanent military presence in the country. Some are concerned that Moscow will use the exercise as cover for a more aggressive act (such as when Russia used exercises in ’14 to prepare for its annexation of Crimea). NYT http://nyti.ms/2vUXBLV
Venezuela stops accepting USD for oil payments – the gov’t is telling oil traders that it will no longer receive or send payments in dollars – WSJ http://on.wsj.com/2f7zsP9
Volatility spike coming? The NYT profiles a hedge fund positioning for a large spike in volatility. http://nyti.ms/2eWeJd5
Company-specific news from Thurs morning 9/14. There are a few notable items in Europe. Next PLC shares are the top performing stock in the SXXP after raising its full-year earnings guidance. GVC Holdings also has a post-earnings bid. GKN PLC is higher following mgmt. changes. Autoliv shares are spiking ~8% after the co said it would pursue a split. On the downside, Morrison Supermarkets is leading on the SXXP on the downside after reporting while Experian is getting hit following the credit agency sell-off in the US on Wed. Hermes shares are weak after the co warned that a strong euro would weigh on financial results (the Hermes news was discussed in this article http://bit.ly/2y7L0q7). Munich Re is holding in well despite issuing a profit warning related to the US hurricanes.
Company-specific news from Wed night 9/13. There weren’t any major micro headlines. Munich Re (right before the US close on Wed) said the US hurricanes could cause it to post a loss in CQ3 and miss prior full-year guidance. BZH said new home sales/closings may be down Y/Y in its FQ4 as a result of the hurricanes but its overall tone stayed sanguine. EMR reported Aug underlying orders up a relatively healthy 9% (although mgmt. said Harvey/Irma had a neg. impact on business results towards the end of Aug and into Sept). The White House formally blocked the LSCC buyout (which isn’t a shock as CFIUS had already recommended scrapping the transaction). THC is exploring options, including a sale, according to a WSJ article. UNFI posted small EPS upside and CDNS named a new CFO.
AAPL – iPhone carrier discounts muted following the 8/X introductions on Tues – wireless carriers during prior iPhone cycles have been extremely aggressive in offering promotions and discounts but this time around the industry is staying (relatively) disciplined. Deals for the iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X have been pared back from the deals offered for the iPhone 7 – Reuters http://reut.rs/2wrCpMR o Toshiba, AAPL – Apple may contribute ~$3B of equity towards Bain’s purchase of the Toshiba memory business.

ALV to pursue split – the co said it aims to split into two companies under a strategic review announced on Thursday. Reuters http://nyti.ms/2y7O8Cj

Calendar for the week of 9/18 – the main focus will be the FOMC decision (Wed 9/20).
