    The first you have to do is to find in yourself what you can offer. Do you know how to code, do graphics arts, or any other service that would be valuable to the community? If so then that would be your tools for the trade. Just offer your service and work for your money. Stop doing hyips and...

    Bitcoin Bike-sharing?

    Interesting. The bike share service I was thinking about that runs in the US (I'm forgetting the name right now) has stations in different areas.

    Beware of "Antminer reseller" on Facebook.

    If the buyers really want to buy eventhough the price is steep then there's no way we can't stop them. But we can advise and rethink everything before buying.

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

    Wasn't the latest Electrum update precisely because people were getting in-wallet messages from malicious nodes telling them to upgrade to a (fake) new version? I think it's a great idea and one that should be done, if not already, but if users can't verify the authenticity of the message (and...

    Purpose of anyone can pay transaction

    Hello "the friend", Unfortunately, neither of the two scenarios are secure (actually they are the same), sorry. Once the receiver broadcasts the txn donations will be exposed to public and subject to robbery. Currently, bitcoin doesn't support the mechanism I've proposed above. I do believe it...

    Could you please be more clear in framing your question? I can't get your point clearly, but based on my understanding you seem to ask how many incoming connections you allow apart from the 8 outgoing connections if you have specified those above mentioned values? If so, While you are...

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

    Nothing will happen. Your peers will disconnect/ban your misbehaviour node and will try to get valid data from another sources. (Nodes do not send rev*.dat information to each other. These files are local database files for updating the current utxo set)
