    Hacking is the most serious problem any exchange is always facing that is why most exchanges right now are heavily investing on site security especially since they are dealing with money of other people who are using the exchange because of trust and credibility. Once this trust and...

    Where to start?

    Buddy, I just checked your previous posts. Your post quality is very bad. Mostly oneliners. To get into a signature campaign, you need to improve your post quality. Otherwise they wont approve you. All campaign managers are very strict regarding this. In my opinion, wait for 2 weeks to apply for...

    I came across a campaign called ARTCOIN. Its main agenda was for actually deals with arts on where to buy or sell own arts also around the globe. But the campaign lasted for one week so i don't really know what happened if it was a scam or its still on a management process. I did not grasp the...

    Bitcoin Bike-sharing?

    That is so nice of the people in your country! I have never in my lifetime been offered a free ride by a stranger - even if I am offered, I will reject because it looks very suspicious. Do you mind telling us where are you from? That is partially right. For new businesses, accepting Bitcoin is...

    Is this a safe way to buy a nano s?

    Hmmm tough one. I guess to be on safe side I think i will just buy from the main site but that peace of mind will probably.cost me at least double the price once i factor in inyernational shipping. Lol. Oh well

    Projects you should start, we need!

    Completely agree with ccowl... As for me. I'm an investor on a p2p bitcoin lending site (, and we get a TON of scammers over there. Sometimes we find their usernames here as scammers (lucky), or vice versa. I would love to create a database for scammers, and maybe this will be a...

    is notifying users about new versions within the wallet a good idea?

    It's like the alert system in early Bitcoin versions -- good intent, but introduces new opportunities for social engineering. Users need be cognizant of the fact that we're using Beta software and that critical bugs will happen. They need to stay informed. I can't help but echo ETFbitcoin's...

    Read and convert UTXO to normal view!

    What are you trying to do? Unless you are after a very specific use case I'm fairly certain there are easier ways to achieve your goal rather than trying to parse Bitcoin's chainstate LevelDB.

    Number of connections

    If you set maxconnections=9 (8+1) then you are allowing a maximum of only 1 incoming connection to connect to your node. This won't save your RAM memory if you are thinking so. Reducing the incoming connections to 1 would reduce the usage of RAM to just few kb. Setting up the incoming...

    How to manually verify blk*.dat and rev*.dat files?

    Why do you think I would do that? Even if I were a top Bitcoin programmer, that would defy my own personal principle. I have already spent a lot of my own personal efforts and (some) money to support Bitcoin network since version 0.9.x as I like the idea and the objective. I hate the change of...

    Recovery Non Spendable BTC

    AFAIK, Electrum by default will derive the P2PKH address from a private key if there's no added prefix. But you will lose nothing if you add the prefix Congratulations by the way

    btc is slow!! Confimations problem

    Where are you sending these funds to. If it's to people, you could try to convince them to use the Lightning Network instead and then your transactions will confirm in a second once you send them. Alternatively, litecoin has a new block every minute and it's chain is pretty small (as apposed to...
