Hi everyone, 19 months ago I sent mistakenly 1 BTC to the Huobi's cold wallet. Yes, I'm retard, I feel terrible.

How I send mistakenly 1 BTC to the Huobi Cold Wallet?
A day I was watching a BTC rich list and exploring the addresses. I'm unsure how exactly it happens because I verified the address, but when I sent 1 BTC I did mistakenly to the wrong address!!! I verified that I was sending to the correct address, but I had to remake the sendship because the wallet crashed, probably there was the problem, the huobi's cold wallet address was in the clipboard. Anyways I don't have certainty how it happens.List: https://bitinfocharts.com/top-100-richest-bitcoin-addresses.html
It was a mistake, I work often sending and receiving BTC. When you do a certain task all the days copying wrong data could be a TERRIBLE but EASY mistake to do, because we are humans and we fall in the trust. As you did a task correctly many many times you earn trust on yourself and try save time. If it didn't happens to you ever you aren't being honest.

7 months talking with Huobi Customer Support (part 1)
I tried to contact Huobi's customer support. First they first didn't understand me, thinking that I tried to deposit on Huobi and sent to a wrong address. After they understand they told me that the address doesn't belongs to Huobi and they can't help me. That is false, I did an investigation and they have direct relation with this address, they can help me. Read my following analysis please:

Huobi Ownership Analysis
Searching, sites says that the address belongs to Huobi Huobi support says that address doesn't belongs to Huobi
I don't know if belongs to Huobi or not, but I can deduct and track that the address is related with Huobi
Why? The address 3Cbq7aT1tY8kMxWLbitaG7yT6bPbKChq64 regulary sent big amounts to 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D
Then, is VERY PROBABLY THAT 3Cbq7aT1tY8kMxWLbitaG7yT6bPbKChq64 OWNER KNOWS 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D OWNER And the 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D OWNER can help me.
Searching, some sites (and sites like USDT Official page https://web.archive.org/web/20181113185656/https://wallet.tether.to/richlist) says that the address 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D belongs to Huobi
Again, I don't know really if the address is of Huobi, but I can deduct and track that the address is related with Huobi
Why? On my Huobi account I made only 2 BTC withdraws from Huobi in the past
2018-05-08 18:36:45 , txid: 0e6bf02323ebc166b6638afcd6170ecb73948748235e687def7e7a3cb1902fca , it has 239 inputs 2018-05-08 20:17:10 , txid: b59b988d642fe3773268e246ef1a0d048bbd3f734a611d00722b39126ed9e20b , it has 239 inputs too
In both transaction, all inputs are addresses that BELONGS TO HUOBI, because you huobi are sending me BTC
Both transactions has 39 addresses as inputs in common (all huobi address, maybe deposit addresses of anothers huobi users)
Example: 1M9ndPSQ4fmMKaKW2oX7LtjduDqYUcFKCW
Analyzing the transactions of this address, we can found many transactions sending BTC to 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D OWNER
https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/740236113bde5a95cfc168d732762be00eee435556c686b00b74b85b3e6c3f77https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/e2367daa464818d46da93e9a364f23536ef31e767f04cd01ff0a01e2baca6f87https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/5c16244c0efaba9aeb1e141e9ff4c8702f7a34f44bac73121ea6f55eb98adab2https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/69e73d1bbcdcb8ffacf0ea555298ee226f1740c02d1131e2db72e7ade32aace1https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/110eff2733a88b626ca38d63b9f2d8b6d5b3e26574f1d918c99c36c785eb0d56
User withdraw? No BECAUSE the amounts are lower than the quantity required for a Huobi withdraw (0.01 BTC) VERY VERY PROBABLY that 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D OWNER is Huobi And seeing all transactions, probably all of them are being used to pay USDT fees (i didn't study this part but isn't relevant)
Then, if 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D OWNER is Huobi, you can help me High probably that you know the 3Cbq7aT1tY8kMxWLbitaG7yT6bPbKChq64 OWNER , address which I mistakenly sent 1 BTC
Please, tell him that give me back my 1 BTC
See my transactions asking the 3CBq.. owner give my BTC back: https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/d60eed9b025f9c5d3fe3b168e2f64e0abcb880123c1c0a51290eaeddbd60b8d7https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/0015646c3df821b035a15837b26c65f458276c05128bbaeae3293284d178d14e
sending to 1SentYou1BtcP1sBackToMeP1sNznQ1zH(read the address) and to 3Cbq7aT1tY8kMxWLbitaG7yT6bPbKChq64 with the same addresses used to send 1 BTC to 3Cbq7aT1tY8kMxWLbitaG7yT6bPbKChq64

7 months talking with Huobi Customer Support (part 2)
After understanding this , they asked me my consent to pay a fee. I agreed. After they asked me sign a message with my privates keys. I did it. And finally they tell me "Wait". I'm waiting 7 months ago, all months I ask and they ever reply the same "We will contact you". Now they told me " Hello,sorry for the inconvenience, we feedback your problem to our technology department. After a series of research and development, but it can not be solved. Please understand this. "
I want to think that the team is failing and Huobi isn't wanting steal my BTC. What they are doing maybe could be illegal. I'm thinking to talk with lawers on Singapore, I don't know what more to do.
I tried to contact the CEO Livio on Twitter ( https://twitter.com/livio_huobi ) but they don't reply me! I want to think that someone else is administering their account.

My ownership evidence:

Read my analysis. Tether saying that this wallet is owned by Huobi: https://web.archive.org/web/20181113185656/https://wallet.tether.to/richlist

They bloqued me from telegram and support don't help or ignores me
Upvoting this helps me (I'm not suggesting it but I will appreciate)
If someone knows how contact the CEO please help me

Doing the Math on the S4E10 eCoin Transaction...

In this week's Mr Robot episode, Darlene sits on a park bench with Dom, and distributes the money she stole from the Deus Group to everybody, evenly. I timed the transaction as it happened in the show. It was 24 seconds, between her hitting return and seeing the following message on her screen: "*Transfers Complete. All Wallets Updated*" This processing time includes a message that says, "cleaning coins through crypto tumbler". It took 1 minute and 16 seconds for the transaction to tumble, process, and for the recipients to begin to get notices that they received money in their accounts.
If you have worked with bitcoin, you know that cryptocurrency does not work like this. Transferring money is a slow and sometimes expensive process, as transaction fees eat into every transaction. I know that eCoin isn't necissarily bitcoin, because it's controlled by eCorp, but it's fun to think about what happens if eCoin works like bitcoin does today...
How much money was transferred?
According to Forbes, the most wealthy people in the world are worth a combined $8.7 trillion, or $2.7 trillion. It depends on which Forbes list you are looking at. On the actual Forbes web site, they say the richest people in the world are worth $8.7 trillion, but they do not state how many of the richest people in the world are worth that much. If you look at sites like Victor Media, they publish a table of the 100 most wealthy people, and say they got the list from Forbes. They probably did purchase the list from Forbes. If I put the Victor Media list into excel, and add all the values in the net worth column, that number comes out to $2.7 trillion. So Forbes might be talking about a list that is more than the top 100 people, and sell the top 100 people list to sites like Victor Media? I don't know.
Either way, we are talking about somewhere between $2.7 and $8.7 trillion.
How many people did the money go to?
That's complicated. There was no global montage showing people celebrating all over the world (which I found a little surprising, even though I still love how this episode was shot). The only indication of a truly global transfer, to every individual in the world, is a TV screen in the airport saying that, "Global eCoin Payout... Deus group collapses as wealth spreads around the world." So Darlene could have sent the money to every individual with an eCoin wallet in the world, or she could be sending them to every American, or to everybody in the developed world. I doubt the average rice farmer in Indonesia is really using eCoin, but it's possible. If she only sent it to every American, our wealth tends to spread around the globe pretty fast, so that's possible, too.
Lets work with World Bank population numbers for all three of these possibilities...
World Population: 7.6 billion people
Global North (AKA the developed world): 1.24 billion people
United States: 327 million people
So we have 6 possibilities for how much money was sent to each person...
People Total Money Money Per Capita Satoshis
7.6 billion $2.7 trillion $355.53 4,739,471
1.21 billion $2.7 trillion $2230.82 29,741,808
327 million $2.7 trillion $8252.65 110,079,512
7.6 billion $8.7 trillion $1145.60 15,279,332
1.21 billion $8.7 trillion $7188.22 95,883,716
327 million $8.7 trillion $26591.89 355,275,242
How much would this transaction cost with bitcoin?
Aside from the fact that eCoin probably functions differently than bitcoin, this is a very complex question. I'm definitely not as sure about these numbers as the other numbers I have, but I'll do my best to come up with useful, realistic numbers. If you are more familiar with the block chain than me, please correct me.
The coins were taken from 100 different Deus Group accounts. Lets say each transaction launders through a bitcoin tumbler 1,000 times. I'm going to ignore transaction fees for the tumbling process, because I don't fully understand the details of tumbling, but 1,000 times seems reasonable to me.
That means that there are 100 x 1,000 = 10,000 inputs in any transaction that spends all the money from the Deus group.
For outputs... for simplicity's sake, I will make the conservative assumption that everybody has one eCoin wallet. That means somewhere between 327 million and 7.6 billion outputs. Accounting for everybody having multiple wallets would make the transaction even bigger, but this is a good starting point to get a feel for what this transaction would look like, in the real world.
How long will this transaction take to process?
There is a bidding process and a bit of politics involved in processing a cryptocurrency transaction. For simplicity, I'll assume we bid enough that this transaction gets priority treatment from the bitcoin miners.
According to blockchain.com, transactions happen on the block chain at a rate of roughly 3.5 transactions per second. At that rate, the tumbling would take roughly 48 minutes, rather than the few seconds it took for Darlene to tumble this money.
According to buybitcoinworldwide.com's fee calculator, here are the transaction sizes, the transaction fees involved (in US Dollars), and the time it would take at 3.5 transactions per second...
Inputs Outputs Size Cost Time
10,000 7.6 billion 240.4737 Gb $38,884,280.55 68.85 years
10,000 1.21 billion 38.32587 Gb $6,192,571.09 10.96 years
10,000 327 million 10.35582 Gb $1,673,260.46 2.96 years
So this transaction would take years to go through, and it pays Evil Corp somewhere between $1.6 and $38 million. In the real world, most of that money would go to Chinese bitcoin miners.
What would the impact be?
A one time windfall of $327 per capita would probably not trigger hyperinflation in America. The largest payout we calculated was $26.5k, and I doubt that would cause hyperinflation, either. Regular inflation? Yes. Hyperinflation? Probably not.
It might lead to hyperinflation in other countries, though, because of differences in purchasing power.
Purchasing power parity is a number that describes the differences in the cost of goods and services around the world. $5 in America will buy you a big mac, but if you go to, say, Indonesia, you can buy a lot more with that $5, because Indonesia is full of people who make something like 25 cents a week.
OECD.org publishes PPP (purchasing power parity) numbers for countries all around the world. If you want to know how far your dollar will stretch, on average, in a foreign country, consult this list. If you have $100 in America, you can expect it to be worth $100 worth of American goods and services, so on the OECD table, it has a PPP of 1.0. If you take that $100 to, say, the UK, where the PPP is 0.7, you can expect that $100 to be worth $70 worth of goods and services. If you take that $100 to Australia, where the PPP is 1.48, you can expect that $100 to buy roughly $148 worth of goods and services.
If Elliot and Darlene were genius economists, I might expect them to account for PPP in their payout. They would have to be geniuses, to predict what PPP is doing after events like the 5/9 hack, because their best data would be out of date, so they would have to use all kinds of fancy regressions and tricks to figure out how that would work in such a volatile world economy. They definitely aren't economists, though, so I'll assume they sent the same nominal amount to everybody.
So what's the range on how much purchasing power this transaction gives people around the world? In 2018, the highest PPP number on the OECD list is Indonesia, with a PPP of 4,245.613140. The lowest PPP on the list is Lithuania, with a PPP of 0.457582. Lets see how this shakes out in each of these countries...
$ Per Capita Lithuania (0.46) Indonesia (4,245.61)
$355.53 $162.68 $1,509,442.84
$2,230.82 $1,020.78 $9,471,198.70
$8,252.65 $3,776.26 $35,037,559.28
$1,145.60 $524.20 $4,863,774.41
$7,188.22 $3,289.20 $30,518,401.29
$26,591.89 $12,167.97 $112,898,877.60
What would this cause? People might predict a lot of different things. The Yang gang people probably strong opinions on this. I have a bachelor's degree in economics, so I believe I can predict that most mainstream economists would predict the following...
In Lithuania, when they get a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, they probably raise a pint to F Society, then put the rest towards a house or car payment, or buy themselves something nice. Minor inflation would happen, probably starting at the pubs, and that would worry financial types, but it would not cause any kind of major economic catastrophe.
In Indonesia, where everybody becomes an asset millionaire overnight, they will probably have hyperinflation, mass social upheaval, and violence.
In conclusion...
TL;DR: What Darlene did last night with eCoin isn't actually possible with bitcoin, and the impact in America might not be as great as you think, but the impact would be much bigger in poorer parts of the world.

Sent mistakenly 1 BTC to Huobi's cold, please help me to contact CEO (7 months!!)

Hi everyone, 7 months ago I sent mistakenly 1 BTC to the Huobi's cold wallet. Yes, I'm retard, I feel terrible.

Transaction:
https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/4769c93d8c9e0d5eaf8311ac8af513e23096ae461da0256a77cf70ca73fd4e4b

How I send mistakenly 1 BTC to the Huobi Cold Wallet?
A day I was watching a BTC rich list and exploring the addresses. I'm unsure how exactly it happens because I verified the address, but when I sent 1 BTC I did mistakenly to the wrong address!!! I verified that I was sending to the correct address, but I had to remake the sendship because the wallet crashed, probably there was the problem, the huobi's cold wallet address was in the clipboard. Anyways I don't have certainty how it happens.List: https://bitinfocharts.com/top-100-richest-bitcoin-addresses.html
It was a mistake, I work often sending and receiving BTC. When you do a certain task all the days copying wrong data could be a TERRIBLE but EASY mistake to do, because we are humans and we fall in the trust. As you did a task correctly many many times you earn trust on yourself and try save time. If it didn't happens to you ever you aren't being honest.

7 months talking with Huobi Customer Support (part 1)
I tried to contact Huobi's customer support. First they first didn't understand me, thinking that I tried to deposit on Huobi and sent to a wrong address. After they understand they told me that the address doesn't belongs to Huobi and they can't help me. That is false, I did an investigation and they have direct relation with this address, they can help me. Read my following analysis please:

Huobi Ownership Analysis
Searching, sites says that the address belongs to Huobi Huobi support says that address doesn't belongs to Huobi
I don't know if belongs to Huobi or not, but I can deduct and track that the address is related with Huobi
Why? The address 3Cbq7aT1tY8kMxWLbitaG7yT6bPbKChq64 regulary sent big amounts to 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D
Then, is VERY PROBABLY THAT 3Cbq7aT1tY8kMxWLbitaG7yT6bPbKChq64 OWNER KNOWS 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D OWNER And the 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D OWNER can help me.
Searching, some sites (and sites like USDT Official page https://web.archive.org/web/20181113185656/https://wallet.tether.to/richlist) says that the address 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D belongs to Huobi
Again, I don't know really if the address is of Huobi, but I can deduct and track that the address is related with Huobi
Why? On my Huobi account I made only 2 BTC withdraws from Huobi in the past
2018-05-08 18:36:45 , txid: 0e6bf02323ebc166b6638afcd6170ecb73948748235e687def7e7a3cb1902fca , it has 239 inputs 2018-05-08 20:17:10 , txid: b59b988d642fe3773268e246ef1a0d048bbd3f734a611d00722b39126ed9e20b , it has 239 inputs too
In both transaction, all inputs are addresses that BELONGS TO HUOBI, because you huobi are sending me BTC
Both transactions has 39 addresses as inputs in common (all huobi address, maybe deposit addresses of anothers huobi users)
Example: 1M9ndPSQ4fmMKaKW2oX7LtjduDqYUcFKCW
Analyzing the transactions of this address, we can found many transactions sending BTC to 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D OWNER
https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/740236113bde5a95cfc168d732762be00eee435556c686b00b74b85b3e6c3f77https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/e2367daa464818d46da93e9a364f23536ef31e767f04cd01ff0a01e2baca6f87https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/5c16244c0efaba9aeb1e141e9ff4c8702f7a34f44bac73121ea6f55eb98adab2https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/69e73d1bbcdcb8ffacf0ea555298ee226f1740c02d1131e2db72e7ade32aace1https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/110eff2733a88b626ca38d63b9f2d8b6d5b3e26574f1d918c99c36c785eb0d56
User withdraw? No BECAUSE the amounts are lower than the quantity required for a Huobi withdraw (0.01 BTC) VERY VERY PROBABLY that 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D OWNER is Huobi And seeing all transactions, probably all of them are being used to pay USDT fees (i didn't study this part but isn't relevant)
Then, if 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D OWNER is Huobi, you can help me High probably that you know the 3Cbq7aT1tY8kMxWLbitaG7yT6bPbKChq64 OWNER , address which I mistakenly sent 1 BTC
Please, tell him that give me back my 1 BTC
See my transactions asking the 3CBq.. owner give my BTC back: https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/d60eed9b025f9c5d3fe3b168e2f64e0abcb880123c1c0a51290eaeddbd60b8d7https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/0015646c3df821b035a15837b26c65f458276c05128bbaeae3293284d178d14e
sending to 1SentYou1BtcP1sBackToMeP1sNznQ1zH(read the address) and to 3Cbq7aT1tY8kMxWLbitaG7yT6bPbKChq64 with the same addresses used to send 1 BTC to 3Cbq7aT1tY8kMxWLbitaG7yT6bPbKChq64

7 months talking with Huobi Customer Support (part 2)
After understanding this , they asked me my consent to pay a fee. I agreed. After they asked me sign a message with my privates keys. I did it. And finally they tell me "Wait". I'm waiting 7 months ago, all months I ask and they ever reply the same "We will contact you". Now they told me " Hello,sorry for the inconvenience, we feedback your problem to our technology department. After a series of research and development, but it can not be solved. Please understand this. "
I want to think that the team is failing and Huobi isn't wanting steal my BTC. What they are doing maybe could be illegal. I'm thinking to talk with lawers on Singapore, I don't know what more to do.
I tried to contact the CEO Livio on Twitter ( https://twitter.com/livio_huobi ) but they don't reply me! I want to think that someone else is administering their account.

Mistakenly sent 1 BTC to Huobi cold wallet 1 YEAR AGO , they don't give me it back

Mistakenly sent 1 BTC to Huobi cold wallet 1 YEAR AGO , they don't give me it back
Hi everyone, 12 months ago I sent mistakenly 1 BTC to the Huobi's cold wallet. Yes, I'm retard, I feel terrible.

Transaction:
https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/4769c93d8c9e0d5eaf8311ac8af513e23096ae461da0256a77cf70ca73fd4e4b

How I send mistakenly 1 BTC to the Huobi Cold Wallet?
A day I was watching a BTC rich list and exploring the addresses. I'm unsure how exactly it happens because I verified the address, but when I sent 1 BTC I did mistakenly to the wrong address!!! I verified that I was sending to the correct address, but I had to remake the sendship because the wallet crashed, probably there was the problem, the huobi's cold wallet address was in the clipboard. Anyways I don't have certainty how it happens.List: https://bitinfocharts.com/top-100-richest-bitcoin-addresses.html
It was a mistake, I work often sending and receiving BTC. When you do a certain task all the days copying wrong data could be a TERRIBLE but EASY mistake to do, because we are humans and we fall in the trust. As you did a task correctly many many times you earn trust on yourself and try save time. If it didn't happens to you ever you aren't being honest.

7 months talking with Huobi Customer Support (part 1)
I tried to contact Huobi's customer support. First they first didn't understand me, thinking that I tried to deposit on Huobi and sent to a wrong address. After they understand they told me that the address doesn't belongs to Huobi and they can't help me. That is false, I did an investigation and they have direct relation with this address, they can help me. Read my following analysis please:

Huobi Ownership Analysis
Searching, sites says that the address belongs to Huobi Huobi support says that address doesn't belongs to Huobi
I don't know if belongs to Huobi or not, but I can deduct and track that the address is related with Huobi
Why? The address 3Cbq7aT1tY8kMxWLbitaG7yT6bPbKChq64 regulary sent big amounts to 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D
Then, is VERY PROBABLY THAT 3Cbq7aT1tY8kMxWLbitaG7yT6bPbKChq64 OWNER KNOWS 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D OWNER And the 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D OWNER can help me.
Searching, some sites (and sites like USDT Official page https://web.archive.org/web/20181113185656/https://wallet.tether.to/richlist) says that the address 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D belongs to Huobi
Again, I don't know really if the address is of Huobi, but I can deduct and track that the address is related with Huobi
Why? On my Huobi account I made only 2 BTC withdraws from Huobi in the past
2018-05-08 18:36:45 , txid: 0e6bf02323ebc166b6638afcd6170ecb73948748235e687def7e7a3cb1902fca , it has 239 inputs 2018-05-08 20:17:10 , txid: b59b988d642fe3773268e246ef1a0d048bbd3f734a611d00722b39126ed9e20b , it has 239 inputs too
In both transaction, all inputs are addresses that BELONGS TO HUOBI, because you huobi are sending me BTC
Both transactions has 39 addresses as inputs in common (all huobi address, maybe deposit addresses of anothers huobi users)

User withdraw? No BECAUSE the amounts are lower than the quantity required for a Huobi withdraw (0.01 BTC) VERY VERY PROBABLY that 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D OWNER is Huobi And seeing all transactions, probably all of them are being used to pay USDT fees (i didn't study this part but isn't relevant)
Then, if 1LAnF8h3qMGx3TSwNUHVneBZUEpwE4gu3D OWNER is Huobi, you can help me High probably that you know the 3Cbq7aT1tY8kMxWLbitaG7yT6bPbKChq64 OWNER , address which I mistakenly sent 1 BTC
Please, tell him that give me back my 1 BTC
See my transactions asking the 3CBq.. owner give my BTC back: https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/d60eed9b025f9c5d3fe3b168e2f64e0abcb880123c1c0a51290eaeddbd60b8d7https://www.blockchain.com/es/btc/tx/0015646c3df821b035a15837b26c65f458276c05128bbaeae3293284d178d14e

7 months talking with Huobi Customer Support (part 2)
After understanding this , they asked me my consent to pay a fee. I agreed. After they asked me sign a message with my privates keys. I did it. And finally they tell me "Wait". I'm waiting 7 months ago, all months I ask and they ever reply the same "We will contact you". Now they told me " Hello,sorry for the inconvenience, we feedback your problem to our technology department. After a series of research and development, but it can not be solved. Please understand this. "
I want to think that the team is failing and Huobi isn't wanting steal my BTC. What they are doing maybe could be illegal. I'm thinking to talk with lawers on Singapore, I don't know what more to do.
I tried to contact the CEO Livio on Twitter ( https://twitter.com/livio_huobi ) but they don't reply me! I want to think that someone else is administering their account.

NBA-China Scandal Crashes Nike Sneaker-Backed Crypto Token Price As Reuters reports on Oct. 16, an anonymous trader’s Weibo post from earlier this month had shone a spotlight on an apparent 10% crash in the price of crypto tokens backed by Nike’s Air Jordan sneakers on 55.com, a United States-based exchange. “It’s clear sneaker speculators were pulling money out of the market,” the trader told Reuters. He interpreted the market response in the context of Chinese netizens’ anger over a now-notorious tweet from Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, in which he declared solidarity with anti-government, anti-Beijing protesters in Hong Kong.
Foxconn Founder: Libra Can ‘Converge’ With China’s Digital Currency In Taiwan Terry Gou, Taiwan’s richest man and the founder of manufacturing giant Foxconn, wants the island to roll out the red carpet for Facebook’s Libra cryptocurrency project. In a recent, little-noticed speech, the billionaire and one-time presidential candidate said Taiwan could boost its status as an international financial hub by embracing Libra, rather than approaching the project with skepticism as other governments have done. Gou also suggested the island could connect Libra, if and when it launches, with the digital currency being developed by the People’s Bank of China.
Ex-CFTC Chairman Proposes Digital Dollar, A Government-Sanctioned Blockchain Protocol Former Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) chairman Christopher Giancarlo, who had parted ways with the regulator this summer, published an article, named “We Sent a Man to the Moon. We Can Send the Dollar to Cyberspace,” stating that Washington should edge out rivals with a regulated platform for trading greenbacks via blockchain. “We propose a digital dollar — a government-sanctioned blockchain protocol, created and maintained by an independent nongovernmental group but administered by banks and other trusted payment organizations,” his words read.
SEC Restarts Clock On Proposed ‘Bitcoin and T-Bills’ ETF According to a public filing published on Oct 15, investment management firm Wilshire Phoenix and NYSE Arca filed an amendment to their ETF proposal earlier this month to address issuance and redemption for the securities and the listing trading of the fund’s shares. Coinbase Custody will act as the custodian for the bitcoin held by the trust, according to the filing. The notice of Oct 15 says Coinbase will provide attestations confirming the amount of Bitcoin it holds within five business days of the trust’s monthly rebalancing, adding a detail not present in the original filing.

Yesterday, we discussed the chances of a possible rebound in bitcoin if it breaks the $8,400 resistance against the US Dollar. However, BTC price struggled to climb above the $8,400 resistance area. As a result, there was a fresh decline below the $8,300 level. Moreover, there was a break below the key $8,200 support area and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Finally, the price traded below the $8,100 level and formed a new weekly low near $8,062. It is currently consolidating losses above the $8,100 level. Besides, it traded above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $8,386 high to $8,062 low. An immediate resistance is near the $8,200 level (the recent key support). The next resistance is near the $8,220 level and the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $8,386 high to $8,062 low.
However, the main resistance for bitcoin is near the $8,300 level and the 100 hourly SMA. Furthermore, there is a key declining channel forming with resistance near $8,350 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. Therefore, a successful break above the channel resistance and a follow through above $8,400 is must for a decent recovery in the near term.
On the downside, there are not many supports up to $8,000. If the bears gain strength, they may perhaps succeed in clearing the $8,000 support area. The next major support is near the $7,800 level, below which the price is likely to head towards the $7,500 zone.

NEM (XEM): Decentralized Governance Gone Wrong, NEM Foundation Bankrupts Itself After Burning Through 80 Million XEM In a Year, Asks Community for Another 160 Million XEM

NEM (XEM): Decentralized Governance Gone Wrong, NEM Foundation Bankrupts Itself After Burning Through 80 Million XEM In a Year, Asks Community for Another 160 Million XEM

https://preview.redd.it/k16nwaqaz5f21.png?width=690&format=png&auto=webp&s=98ba3977286dbad5edacd80878b0f84fdd18d336
https://cryptoiq.co/nem-xem-decentralized-governance-gone-wrong-nem-foundation-bankrupts-itself-after-burning-through-80-million-xem-in-a-year-asks-community-for-another-160-million-xem/
The War On Shitcoins Episode 10: NEM (XEM). The war on shitcoins is a Crypto.IQ series that targets and shoots down cryptocurrencies that are not worth investing in either due to their being scams, having serious design flaws, being centralized, or in general just being worthless copies of other cryptocurrencies. There are thousands of shitcoins that are ruining the markets, and Crypto.IQ intends to expose all of them. The crypto space needs an exorcism, and we are happy to provide it.
The NEM Foundation has announced that it will be completely restructuring its organization and laying off most or all of its staff, after apparently burning through 80 million XEM from December 2018 through January 2019. Essentially the NEM Foundation will be bankrupt within a month according to the statement. Now the NEM Foundation is requesting an addition 160 million XEM, despite the budget failure over the last year.
“We saw efforts being duplicated, and inconsistent metrics of success,” according to the statement. “We saw very little accountability for funds and questionable ROI, leading to a burn rate of 9 million XEM per month. In terms of running an effective organization, the existing structure failed.”
Essentially, the NEM Foundation admits that the money was used unwisely. It is difficult to ascertain the fiat value of the 80 million XEM that were improperly spent, since the price of XEM fluctuated between $2.02 and $0.04 during this period of time.
After the statement was issued on Jan. 30, the price of XEM declined from $0.048 to $0.04, a 17 percent price crash. More importantly, the price of XEM has been in a constant decline since hitting a peak value of $2.02 at the beginning of 2018 and has lost 98 percent of its value over the course of a year. The NEM Foundation constantly dumping XEM during the bear market can likely explain why the price of XEM has declined more than other cryptocurrencies. For example, Bitcoin (BTC) has declined 83 percent, while XEM has lost practically all of its value.
If the NEM Foundation receives 160 million XEM, this spiral towards zero will likely continue. The NEM Foundation claims that things are different this time since the NEM Foundation has elected a completely new leadership team. Indeed, the Founder and President of the NEM Foundation, Lon Wong, left the NEM Foundation in April 2018 and launched the $28.7 million ProximaX ICO.
It is perhaps suspicious that the Founder of the NEM Foundation left less than two years after it was created and immediately launched a highly successful ICO. Presumably, Wong had great pull over what the NEM Foundation’s funds were spent on, and it’s not out of the question that a significant amount of funds were used incorrectly before his sudden departure and ICO.
It gets worse. Many of the top XEM addresses are associated with the various dev funds. In the top 50 richest XEM wallets alone, 3.365 billion XEM worth $135 million is devoted to dev funds. This is 37 percent of the total XEM supply, and the total supply devoted to dev funds is likely even higher since only the top 50 wallets were reviewed by Crypto.IQ.
Essentially, the developer teams and foundations on the NEM network have a stranglehold on the XEM market. As the NEM Foundation proved in 2018 by dumping 80 million XEM during a bear market, the developers dumping funds puts all the XEM traders and investors at risk in the future.
In the statement announcing the layoff of all of its employees, it says
“For the past two years, the structure of the NEM Foundation was a first-of-its-kind attempt to running [sic] a decentralized promotional organization in different regions around the world. The Foundation was trusted with making decisions for the NEM public chain and spreading its global adoption. In 2018, the Foundation tested the concept of decentralized regional leadership, allowing each region a great deal of freedom in how they operated as long as they were promoting NEM”.
Clearly, the NEM Foundation started as an attempt at decentralized governance, and in the end, significantly contributed to the collapse of the XEM price. One of the main projects that the NEM organization was created, called Catapult, never launched. Further, the NEM Foundation branded itself as decentralized governance, but clearly has plenty of centralized power to do whatever it wants with dev funds.
Having funds allocated to development can be a good thing, but in the case of NEM (XEM), it seems too much money was allocated to development. The rapid rise in the price of XEM following the creation of the NEM Foundation in early 2017, the subsequent bear market, and the dishonesty of the NEM Foundation created a perfect recipe for a market collapse. It would be foolish if the community gives the NEM Foundation another 160 million XEM after this debacle, but there is an overabundance of dev funds, and the community is highly anticipating Catapult, so it seems likely.
Ultimately, the centralization of the NEM (XEM) supply makes NEM (XEM) a risky cryptocurrency to invest in.

I hope this bear market leads to a Bitcoin middle class

I personally believe in the long-term value of Bitcoin and its potential to eventually become a global and frictionless transfer of value. However, one of my concerns with the current state is how a vast majority of BTC is controlled by a very small percentage of wallets. If you look at this distribution chart, only the top 1% has more than 10 BTC and control 87% of the total number of coins. Compare that to the US distribution of wealth where 1% had 35% of the nation's wealth (as of 2007).
Yes, the current crypto bear market stinks. The FUD is real and this subreddit is being overrun by price talk and negativity. But at the same time, I hated seeing people slowly accumulate trying to reach a balance of only 1 BTC back when it was hovering around $6k. If the price falls to $1k or below, I would be down a fair amount personally, but at least people will have the opportunity to own 5, 10, 20+ BTC each.
If the current distribution stays the same, Bitcoin will always be subject to wild swings in exchange rates. I for one am tired of whales manipulating the price, increasing volatility, and giving naysayers ammunition to say Bitcoin is useless. I hope all the speculators sell on the way down and the people who believe in the fundamentals of the technology create a solid middle class in the BTC distribution.
This is not financial advice, just saying what I hope to happen. I'm sure the doubters will reply to this saying I'm dumb/delusional/whatever, but this post is not meant for them and I will not be responding to the FUD. This is meant for the Bitcoin maximalists looking for some logical thinking in a sea of negativity.

Q4 Community Update Email From Richard Ells

Hi Everyone!
We are coming to the close of 2018 and whilst cryptocurrency in general has had a year of turmoil, it has been a very positive year for Electroneum and I’d like to recap on what we’ve achieved this year and reveal some of what we have planned for next year. This might end up as an epic, Tolstoy length, email so my apologies if it’s too long for you – but I feel there’s a lot to say…
Firstly, let’s remember that we set out to redefine cryptocurrency altogether. Before Electroneum there were NO cryptocurrencies that were designed from the start to be widely and easily adopted. We have started to achieve the primary goal of Electroneum which is adoption. Did you know that Electroneum is the fastest growing cryptocurrency in the history of the world (I was going to say “Universe” but I really don’t know what our competitors are doing in other spiral arms of this galaxy, let alone the entire universe). Hold on! Let’s just think about that for a second! We have grown our user numbers to over 2 million holders and users of ETN in just one year. We fit the real world usage of cryptocurrency better than ANY other.
Biggest (and best) community in crypto!
Electroneum has done something here that’s never been achieved elsewhere. We have an enormous community of advocates. Users who are more than just users, they are passionate about what Electroneum is trying to do. A quick Google search of any cryptocurrency will find you some videos and some images, but with ETN there is an enormous following of hundreds of thousands of amazing people who are helping to make ETN a success. Electroneum has Fan Art. Think about that. A “boring” financial product with fan art! I’ve never seen any credit card fan art or banking fan art! If you are one of the passionate ETN believers and advocates, then I’d like to say a whopping THANK YOU to you for your input, no matter how small. You can (and are) changing the world.
Boring Statistics?
A former British Prime Minister famously quoted “There are lies, damned lies and statistics”. This is certainly true of the cryptocurrency market and as such we’ve just installed the Alexa.com (part of Amazon) certified traffic stats tool onto our website. That shows statistics for ONLY real people. You can’t fake it or exaggerate it. Did you know that if you compare the web traffic of all cryptocurrencies – we are in the top 5. If you look at active wallet numbers and actual blockchain transaction numbers, we are in the top 10 of cryptocurrencies for both. We have achieved a great deal this year, by making ETN accessible to everyone who has a smartphone.
Electroneum Lead the Market
2018 has seen us launch our Instant Payment system into BETA, be the first cryptocurrency to offer a payment integration API allowing vendors to easily accept cryptocurrency for instant transactions. We are working with the community to create easy payment plugins for all the popular ecommerce software and we’ve launched a number of them including WooCommerce which enables over 3m WooCommerce sites to accept ETN with around 15 minutes of work. I can’t overstate how important this instant payment framework is to us achieving our goals. It is a huge leap forwards for cryptocurrency. We’ve seen some great vendors come on board this year and next year I am confident we will see a huge surge of vendors, once we get live on the ground in a few strategic areas.
We are the first cryptocurrency to formally adopt KYC (know your customer – which now officially goes live on the 27th December). As the authorities of the world start to accept and understand cryptocurrency you will see why our early adoption of a regulatory framework is important to growth. Governments of the world fear cryptocurrency. We are giving them something to embrace.
We have produced hundreds of thousands of lines of code this year. I’ve seen a lot of projects talk about valuations of crypto projects based on Github Commits (this is a place where people store their open source code). Electroneum is different to most cryptocurrencies. It has both open source blockchain code that anyone is welcome to help work on AND closed source code that runs the back end such as the app, the instant payment system, and the custodial wallet system. These are the features that are making Electroneum a success and make us a real business that corporations, governments, NGOs and institutions can feel comfortable with.
The Bright Future of ETN…
This year has been a year of preparing. Growing the team (not everyone in the team wants their picture on the website – we have over 30 full time employees and access to many more part time resources).
MWC Sees Launch of Two or More Major Things…
Last year we attended MWC (mobile world congress) as the first cryptocurrency member of the GSMA. Next February we attend again (you are going to LOVE our stand, nobody has ever done anything like it!). This time we are attending with a full product and exciting news.
We launch a number of things at that show, all of which are secret for now. Two are locked in as absolutes and there are a few more than we are trying to tie in with the show! I don’t want to hint at what is coming – it’s only a couple of months before you’ll see for yourself, but it will be the base block from which we demonstrate to the business world just how usable cryptocurrency can be.
Apple iOS Launch (finally!)… and Cloud Mining too!
The first week of January will see our iOS app that includes cloud mining go into 100 user BETA. The second week we will release it to our 5000+ iOS testflight users (still in BETA) and (subject to testing) should be in the Apple Store by the end of January.
Cloud Mining for Android
Cloud mining will make the distribution of ETN much more appealing to the target audience of the unbanked. Ironically with their lower powered hardware and sporadic internet access it has been the developed world that has found it easiest to obtain some ETN. That all changes with cloud mining, where someone with the latest Samsung or iPhone will get the same value in ETN as someone with an ancient smartphone and little internet access.
We can launch cloud mining for Android subject to the successful testing on Apple devices. I think it is going to be a big success and I expect to see it on Android before the MWC show in February.
Blockchain
As you probably know we used the Monero blockchain as a stable base for the Electroneum Blockchain when we launched. We’ve been moving away from Monero and have removed many of the privacy features of Monero during 2018. 2019 will see even more privacy removed, although we intend to keep stealth addresses, to prevent vendors (or anyone else) looking into your wallet and seeing how much ETN you have – like you can with Bitcoin and Ethereum.
Some say we are not doing anything particularly different or unique with the blockchain part of our project, but the reality is that we are doing the single most important thing there is with blockchain - we are making it useable in everyday life.
Credit Card Purchase of ETN & Gig Economy
This week has been a particularly busy week with a few new exchanges coming on board and a launch of a very important part of our future “Gig Economy” system. You can now purchase ETN quickly and simply with a credit card at Indacoin (https://www.indacoin.com/en_GB/change/buy-electroneum-with-cardusd). We are working on others especially for the US citizens which indacoin currently does not cover.
This is important as when we launch our Gig Economy website in Q1 of 2019 it will enable the unbanked of the world to join the global economy when looking for work. This is one of the major areas that we see for opening up the world to understanding the power of cryptocurrency as people in developed nations become able to purchase digital services from the people of developing nations, with no barriers.
Developed nation businesses can purchase ETN with a credit card and buy software development, data entry, virtual business services, design, data research, social media management and much, much more, from a growing market of millennial entrepreneurs in the developing market. Everyone wins. You’ll see way more of this in 2019 including an e-learning system that enables those with digital skills to remotely teach others, with an ETN incentive.
As I mentioned above this should be going live in Q1 – we are trying to get that live for MWC too, but I don’t want to commit 100% to that date for this project. The good news is that we have a lot of interest in it from an NGO perspective, so when we launch it I am confident it will be a really powerful force for both enablement and empowerment of individuals but also a huge catalyst for the growth and acceptance of cryptocurrency generally.
The 2018 Cryptocurrency Market
People have been asking me “WHY!? WHHHHYYYYYY?” to the 2018, pronounced, dip in the price of cryptocurrencies across the board and I’d like to offer you my view of the 2018 cryptocurrency market and what I believe the market will focus on in the future.
The cryptocurrency markets are very new and whilst they are often compared to more mature markets, such as the equities markets, I believe there are very FEW similarities.
Some people are buying and selling cryptocurrencies based on applying technical analysis, where they look at chart patterns in the historical price and volumes to try and predict the future, others are buying based on momentum, effectively following the herd and then there are the true project believers (known in the crypto industry as hodlers!) who have bought some because they believe in the long term viability and future success of the project.
Don’t worry… I’m getting to my point…
A lesson from Warren Buffet
One of the most successful conventional traders in the world is Warren Buffet – he’s pretty good at it too, having been the richest man in the world a few times. What should we learn from him? Firstly, he’s not a huge fan of Bitcoin, in fact, he hates the stuff. Why is this and what can we learn from him? Warren hates Bitcoin because he’s a value investor, and a very good one. He doesn’t believe in chart analysis and he’s not a fan of momentum trading. He invests in PEOPLE. He invests in TEAMS and he invests in REAL THINGS.
The cryptocurrency markets are largely coupled with Bitcoin. When it moves, the market moves, and at the moment it is almost entirely driven by the herd and not by people analysing VALUE.
Herds are happy to run off cliffs as well as away from danger, hence the large swings (in both directions of the cryptocurrency markets).
Obviously, I’m a huge fan of cryptocurrencies, so Warren and I are going to differ on some views, but I absolutely know that he would look at Electroneum in a different light to Bitcoin.
We have identified and created a model for blockchain coin emissions which allows us to create a global marketing opportunity which rewards users, partners and vendors for engagement.
We have spent time building products, solutions and partnerships rather than hyping them, meaning that most people are unaware of what has really been achieved in such a short time.
The Electroneum team are fortunate to have considerable relationships across distribution partners, working closely with a number them throughout the planning and creation of our ecosystem.
In our first year, we have developed, tested and launched a much wider set of products and partner benefits than anyone expected.
We are going in to 2019 as a gateway, with a toolkit and approach that enables partners, governments and entrepreneurs to benefit from cryptocurrency; no longer is it just trading or accumulation of crypto. We stimulate every day, continual usage in the real world.
We are focused on the fundamentals of traditional business, giving people what they want and helping to achieve financial inclusion and inclusivity, by creating an end to end ecosystem for everyday use of crypto, by anyone anywhere.
The combination of our ecosystem, our partners and the scale of our community puts us in an incredibly strong position to achieve our goals of opening the world economy to every person, including the 1.8 billion unbanked.
In short, Electroneum has an actual business behind it and is delivering REAL THINGS to REAL USERS (millions of them) via partnerships with other REAL companies. We deliver value and can show future revenue streams based on demonstrated growth. These are real life business things. We know our users and that is valuable. We have access to our users and that is valuable. We understand and can chart growth, and that is valuable. The list of differences goes on. Take a look at the metrics of some of the biggest tech “unicorns” and you’ll see they are all valued on the number of real, active USERS. The only reason they have that value is because they can communicate and monetise those users, and that is where the parallel to Electroneum becomes apparent. We have no intention of substantially monetising our user base for years to come, but we have the capability to do so – and all businesses MUST have a revenue stream or potential FUTURE revenue stream.
I believe in Bitcoin, and I see it as a kind of cryptocurrency gold, but because there is so much focus on fully decentralised systems that do not know their users and are run by anonymous miners, we will find that real value investors are wary of ALL cryptocurrencies because of the mistaken impression that they are all alike.
I agree that it is hard to make a purchase of Bitcoin based on fundamentals and value, because it’s not obvious where it lies. Scarcity and a belief in the project make me a Hodler, but I can’t put a ‘fair price’ on Bitcoin. Nobody can.
Cryptocurrencies are evolving. Electroneum is unarguably more technically useful than Bitcoin because of its speed, accessibility and ability to scale, but that is not ENOUGH.
I believe that as more REAL WORLD cryptocurrency projects evolve you will see VALUE as the main driver in the cryptocurrency markets.
If a cryptocurrency project is also a conventional company with the ability to drive profits, grow larger and become a dominant brand – THEN you will see conventional investors such as Warren Buffet entering the market.
I hope that cryptocurrency volatility will be reduced as cryptocurrencies start to look and feel more like regular companies, with friendly help desks, balance sheets, contractual partnerships and accountability.
When is this going to happen?... it’s already started…
I wish you and your family the very best Christmas or Holiday period,
Richard Ells Founder & CEO, Electroneum.com

A simple analysis of the bitcoin rich list in 2017

I took snapshots from the bitcoin rich list, using the wayback machine, and I made a table containing:
I'm European, so dd/mm/yyyy, points for thousands separator, and comma's for decimals.
Date Price 0 - 0,001 btc 0,001 - 0,01 btc 0,01 - 0,1 btc 0,1 - 1 btc 1 - 10 btc 10 - 100 btc 100 - 1.000 btc 1.000 - 10.000 btc 10.000 - 100.000 btc 100.000 - 1.000.000 btc

A couple of my own observations:
I'm not sure how exchanges deal with customers' wallets, whether they pool the bitcoin of all their customers or they keep it in separate wallets. Depending on this, the estimations may be off in one or the other direction.
In summing up, I think the 8x in price of bitcoin in 2017 (sofar) might give a false impression of the adoption rate when looking at these numbers. The price is driven by high demand for the relatively little amounts of liquid bitcoins (as compared to the thousands of bitcoins that are parked and not moving).
Ideally, I would have used the actual blockchain and a statistics packet like R for this analysis. However, for the case here, and for a first look, this simpler method is good enough. If anybody is willing to repeat this with much more granularity and detail and for a longer period, that would be awesome.
EDIT: some . and $
EDIT2: I would really like to see (or do myself) an in-depth analysis with nice looking graphs instead of the irregularly spaced out richlist snapshots. E.g. load the blockchain into R, and plot charts with the blocknumbers as timescale.

When I wrote 4 months ago that

The price is driven by high demand for the relatively little amounts of liquid bitcoins (as compared to the thousands of bitcoins that are parked and not moving).
It is pretty clear now that the insane run in November and December was not sustainable and not backed by natural adoption growth. But also, if we extrapolate price-to-addresses ratio from the past to now, bitcoin is still way overvalued at current price.

Of Wolves and Weasels - Day 187 - Guest Post: Confessions of a Bitcoiner

Hey all! GoodShibe... on Summer Vacation!
Please enjoy this post by Guest Writer Justlite and tip them well ;D)
Note: To tip them directly:
+dogetipbot @Justlite xxx doge verify
I've been part of this Dogecoin community since early January and I have to say the people here constantly amaze me. For me Dogecoin and this community is the future of cryptocurrency and I'm speaking as a long time Bitcoiner. Over a month ago I explained in a previous post why I believe Dogecoin price will rise again and correctly predicted Bitcoin to rise substantially shortly after my post against in the face of several counter arguments late last year. My thoughts have not changed on Dogecoin but I feel it's worth giving my experience on cryptocurrencies as a Bitcoiner in the early days of 2010-13 and how that compares with Dogecoin.
I bought Bitcoin and Litecoin in the early days and I can tell you the Bitcoin community back then was hopeful, cheerful and very welcoming...forgive us right now we are at the fighting stage with the established status quo wants to knock Bitcoin down.
In the early days we were only known for CPU/GPU mining discussions and tipping one another after each comment. In fact Bitcoin was only ever used to tip and trade but not to buy anything since we didn't have anything available for Bitcoin. We were very brave I mean wiring money to a company in Japan and getting these online things called Bitcoin which doesn't buy anything?!
Back then Bitcoin fans were seen as weird and Bitcoin as a complete joke we were idealist and we still are. Many of the people that fought us then were actually the libertarian precious metals community and because gold and silver were tangible and has been money for 5000 years Bitcoin wasn't and was barely a year old. It's hard to argue with them, after all some guy that called himself Satoshi Nakamoto, the Japanese equivalent of Jack Smith, created it but left after a year and no one saw how he looks like.
We could understand their concerns, a lot of early Bitcoiners like me also have gold and silver in the belief it will protect our wealth from the next financial collapse. But Bitcoin was created for this purpose too, no more will the 1% have economic power over the 99%, "1 CPU - 1 vote" said Satoshi in his white paper. We are also in the digital era and with all the success the internet is nowadays there still was no internet currency without the excessive charges of credit card companies.
Bitcoin changed all that it wasn't just an internet currency it was hoping to be money on every platform in every country, person to person, in at least 10 minutes between any country in any amount for free! Fast forward to present day and we are starting to see that.
Of course we have had many setbacks on the way, such as exchanges being hacked, wallets stolen. We weren't so security conscious back then and we learned the hard way.
Then we grew in price and popularity and quite recently the government fought us when our dark market Silk Road was shut down by the Feds. We have had 4 price bubbles a lot of sleepless nights I've personally ploughed in tens of thousands of dollars lost a lot of Bitcoins on the way (and also lost 15000 Litecoins) and forced to read articles with declarations of "Bitcoin is dead" after each major price drop.
Sound familiar?
"History doesn't repeat it self but it does rhyme" Mark Twain
That's all part of the growing pains of a disruptive idea.
Dogecoin, by comparison, has a whole economy after just 7 months of inception! It's remarkable as I am also a big Litecoin fan and even that community isn't as productive as this. People talk about Dogecoin's PR as it being behind its popularity but I honestly believe there is no intentional PR, I mean where is the PR team?
I believe it was a combination of a friendly meme encouraging positive kind people, a internet currency that's easily explainable to anyone, a very mineable coin using your PC/laptop so everyone can get involved in and great online platform such as Reddit to connect like minded users together and everything just snowballed from there.
Now Dogecoin is one of the most productive coins out there with several client and core devs, hundreds of retailers, apps, doge specific websites, blogs and charity fundraisers. That's why I believe Dogecoin is undervalued right now.
This doesn't mean you should put your life savings into Dogecoin or other cryptocurrencies as they are still a risk and early stage technology. Just buy with what you can afford to lose!
So where is Dogecoin heading? - The analysis
As long as we still use doge for goods and services and keep the positivity going then I can only see the price of doge going higher and reaching all time highs without the need for manipulation. Over what time frame?
Like Bitcoin it won't be overnight and granted there's no supply limit so it will never reach tens or hundreds of dollars but we don't need it to. I honestly want Dogecoin to be a currency and I personally like having whole doges. Ideally I would hope that 1 or even 10 doge will buy 1 loaf of bread or 1 litre of milk at my local grocery store some day.
Supply vs Demand
As I mentioned before the supply coming to the exchanges from multipools has been immense - it is thought about 160 million doge a day is being mined and sold on exchanges just from miners. This not only exerts a lot of selling pressure but it also encourages weak hands to sell forcing the price down further it's a downward spiral which we have been seeing.
Any other coin would have collapsed long ago but doge is no ordinary coin. After the next two halvings in October time it will be down to 40 million a day and low enough to allow for natural demand to outpace the supply causing the price to increase steadily which will give momentum and may then lead to a new all time high and the second bubble.
Network Hashrate
I'm of the belief that ASICs are a necessary evolution in cryptocurrencies by making a coin secure which will attract investment/adoption and environmentally friendly. With scrypt ASICs large and small coming online the network hashrate has more than doubled in the last 2 months from 40 GH/s to 90 GH/s and while we tend to see a jump in hashrate just before a halvening I attribute this rise to small miners also buying ASICs and a lack of more profitable altcoins. Again that's great for the stability of our coin and this will provide further confidence that Dogecoin is a good crypto to buy/adopt/invest.
Deflationary Inflation
Sounds confusing so let me explain unlike Bitcoin where there will only be 21 million coins mined, Dogecoin will reach 100 billion coins mined after block 600k and then see 5.25 billion coins mined each year forever which works out as 5.25% inflation in the first year and then 4.99% in the second year and so on.
While this may seem a lot I have come to the conclusion that it may be a blessing for Dogecoin as it is thought that 5 billion coins per year would be lost permanently anyway so this will 5.25billion coins would replace the lost coins. The extra 5.25 billion coins per year would be enough to incentivise miners to continue mining doge (which would hopefully be at a high enough price after the 600k block reward) and securing our network.
Because Bitcoin has a cap it is seen as a store of value like gold whereas Dogecoin has a infinite supply but at a predictably low yearly increase in fact from 2015 to 2020 Dogecoin will have less yearly inflation than Bitcoin. This can actually encourage people to treat Dogecoin as a true currency to buy everyday items with than as a store of value. I believe that is what Satoshi envisioned Bitcoin to be.
What are the whales doing?
The top 20 dogecoin addresses which account for 40% of all mined Dogecoin out there haven't sold any of their DOGEs.
The whales with large wallets have not sold their DOGE over the course of the last 4 months but the smaller wallets have! Why? The whales are happy to see their DOGE go to zero if they thought it was dying or they have been there and done that and know that perhaps Dogecoin is heading up? I can tell you I have no intention of selling my DOGEs as I believe interesting times are ahead.
The Bitcoin Effect
Bitcoin has paved the way for a crypto to go from $0.0001 to $1000+ and brought technological development, liberty and a sense of community all in a 5 year timespan.
While only $0.00023 Dogecoin has got an ecosystem, a following, funded several charity efforts and a burgeoning economy after only 7 months thanks in part to the network effect of Bitcoin and the rest down to you.
All I can say to you all is well done to all of you for being such a positive and productive community. Keep using Dogecoin and check the links at the side bar such as dogedoor.net and suchlist.com so that you can spend, buy, tip and mine doge and spread the word.
Now let's go to the moon!
TL;DR - Bitcoin had it's ups and downs and not short of haters over the years. Dogecoin is following the same path but in a shorter time frame. After the next 2 halvings Dogecoin price should be rising and adoption will speed up again which will make it a true currency so keep buying using and tipping doge wherever you can.
It's 8:09AM EST and we've found 87.24% of our initial 100 Billion DOGEs -- only 12.76% remains until our period of Hyper-inflation ends! Our Global Hashrate is up from ~76 to ~92 Gigahashes per second and our Difficulty is up from ~1196 to ~1351.

"Code is Law": Comedy Gold Survey on Ethereum

Survey ID: 00001 Coin: Ethereum Client: Tyler Durden

Executive summary:

Ethereum is almost certainly the number 2 coin in comedy gold. It will likely surpass Bitcoin in comedy gold long before it passes it in market cap. Thanks in large part to a spam-based marketing campaign on Reddit, it also has a dedicated base of critics.
After its IPO, it was known as “Inthereum” for a while, infinitely powerful of course, as vaporware can do anything. It had a major version release, then another. Finally, a major smart contract, in terms of valuation, came along: The DAO. Not to be confused with other DAOs, before and after. The DAO was the biggest. It was going to be the best; it already was the best! Euphoria was off the charts.
Until just a few months in, a bug was found. And the killer app became the flash point. What could they do? Well, hard fork and give the money back, of course! And so they did.
“Code is Law”; but this is actually good for Ethereum because “[a]lthough some do question the analogy ‘code is law’. I do not. We just found out that we have a supreme court, the community!” [1]
After the D'OH, Ethereum struggles to top its ATH comedy gold, but there is still a bright future for popcorn and comedy gold from Ethereum.

5 Largest Veins of Comedy Gold

Here are the largest comedy gold veins in Ethereum in potential reserves in our estimation in approximately descending order:
  • Cultlike euphoria - Now, this can certainly be said to be common to almost all cryptocurrencies. But Ethereum seems special here, even more than Bitcoin's community. There is a real belief here that this coin is going to change the world. This helps play into a "this is very good for Ethereum" mindset, wherein even the D'OH fork was a great success!
There is no greater terror than a fiend on ether.
  • Vitalik Buterin - The best name in cryptocurrency! Young genius central to Ethereum and almost universally seen as the most important leader in the project. In our view, his endorsement and leadership during the D'OH fork led to that route being taken. That is, we believe if he had opposed it from the start, he may have been able to prevent it or at least have led to what is now called ETC being the dominant of the two.
And so in our view, Mr. Buterin runs a billion dollar cryptocurrency right now. He and his team seem to have done reasonably well so far; it seems likely they'll continue to thrive. To the best of my knowledge, confirmed on /ethereum, there hasn't been a drug market implemented in Ethereum or trading with ETH so far. But while it seems like a terrible idea, because of the lack of privacy and proven mutability of contracts, it seems like eventually there's going to be a major drug market accepting ETH just because it has such a high value. And, they point out, monero and zcoin’s core privacy feature will apparently be available on ETH after this next fork, so look forward to anonymous ETH fueling drug markets!
And then the interesting question will be raised of how Chief Justice Buterin will rule on the case, whether it is worthy of an intervention or not. If not a drug market, then another buggy and hacked contract. Or a hacked exchange, and the question of whether to make it or its users whole, or "let the hacker win".
  • DAOs - From the beginning, it was proposed that Ethereum itself and its reserve fund would be turned into a DAO. How exactly this was going to happen would be figured out later of course. There was an initial estimate of 2016 for the transition.
Of course, in 2016, The DAO and the D'OH happened. I'm not aware of a current further push to put all of ETH's future funding into a DAO. But I'm sure the topic will resurface. And it will be hilarious on so many levels. The DAO actually collapsed too soon for peak comedy gold extraction. It had been predicted that there would be no consensus on any proposals and that nothing would be funded, and that there would be gold from that. But it was just a few months in when the bug was found. And while the D'OH fork was certainly a rich vein of comedy gold, it wasn't as rich as what the DAO could have been if it had floundered around for a year or so before the hack.
Surprisingly, there's actually a running, apparently working DAO on ETH that was started even before The DAO: digixDAO. If it keeps on running, it will continue to be hilarious as other DAOs fail to learn from it. If it fails, there's all the more hilarity for Ethereum, making it the platform where anything complicated enough to look like an original use case will break. The very existence of digix is proof-of-comedy-gold.
  • Immutability - The whole central notion of immutability is going to be a recurring question for Ethereum after the D'OH. While there was a lot of sentiment of "just this once and never again" at the time, there will someday be another major issue, and the precedent will mean that at least a major debate among the community will be had. Ethereum is "mostly immutable". Bitcoin is far better protected here, because while it's true they've hard forked to fix a bug before, that was years ago and the community is far more fractured now. Ethereum has a demonstrated capacity to do both routine and controversial hard forks. This strength is also a challenge, as it will invite constant legal and ethical questions about when it's appropriate to modify the chain itself with a fork: that is, rolling back some or all transactions after major bugs, thefts, frauds, and so forth.
  • Concentration of funds - This one I'm just guessing at. Although rich lists do exist, obviously one entity like an exchange could pool funds in an address without one person owning that much, or one person could splits their coins among many accounts. But it gives a rough guide. In Bitcoin, the top 113 addresses, having more than 10,000 BTC, in total are 17.46% of the current supply [ 2 ]. And in Ethereum, it's true that the top two accounts are marked as exchange accounts [ 3 ]. Still, having lots of funds concentrated in a single exchange wallet seems to still have some potential for comedy gold. In Ethereum, the top 50 addresses have more than double the proportion of the top 113 in Bitcoin, a bit over 40% of the current supply. My guess would be there are still a lot of people who invested heavily in the initial ICO who have held onto a significant portion of their initial ETH. While some of these top addresses are exchanges, I think there are probably many individuals represented in here as well, and every one of them is a multimillionaire from this account alone.
Of course, so far, because ETH is still smaller than BTC in overall market cap, these top addresses aren't as huge as the top addresses in Bitcoin in current market value. But if ETH were to overtake BTC's current position with a relatively unchanged distribution, there would be some real comedy gold coming off this factor. Cribs could have a spin-off Ethereum series.
This concentration was a part of making The D'OH what it was in my view as well: in Bitcoin, there would never have been so much of the coin tied up in one particular venture, at least not now. But in Ethereum, this concentration and groupthink can combine to hilarious effect.

A Brief History of Comedy Gold in Ethereum:

“Laws, like sausages, cease to inspire respect in proportion as we know how they are made” - John Godfrey Saxe
In the beginning, there was an offering. The greatest coin the world had ever seen; step right up and buy it! There was even code; this is no vaporware! Sure, there was more work to be done, but the ICO would fund that work, the founders would get a little, and create a reserve for the future and the rest would be mineable.
There was also some of the most vociferous objections on BCT, declaring that the stake allocated to the founders was too large, pointing to other coins which had done smaller or done without. Arguing against the reserve; arguing against having a presale at all. Some people, of course, completely failing to read the documentation accurately to see what was even being proposed. And an almost complete radio silence from this large team working around the clock on Ethereum.
It took some months from when the initial ANN was made until the sale actually started, but by the time they had their sale, they had perhaps the best documentation at launch to-date. Of course, there were some areas which seemed to lack some detail, like the budgeting, but never mind that, it was finally launching!
Launching the sale, at least. In July and August of 2014, Ether was first sold. It was described as “fuel” for the virtual machine they were going to build [ 4 ].
And then, a year later, Ethereum was released live. By July 2016, it had already had its first major crisis after The DAO was hacked and the D’OH fork introduced in response.
But the fact that Ethereum was ever released, and that it was released so quickly, is truly incredible. There was more than one person who thought that the stated goals of Ethereum were not possible. And, of course, many initial goals and deadlines didn’t happen. But unlike the railbirds on BCT were convinced, the team did not fail nor did it run off with the money. They were given a blank check, and they actually delivered a working product which has been successful so far financially.
Of course, having its flagship smart contract go belly-up quite so quickly after having finally gotten a “killer app” seems rather unfortunate. The oracle problem (the question of how to reliably relate smart contracts to the outside world) seems unresolved, but partial solutions are inevitable and can only serve to make increasingly complex and thus popcorn-loaded contracts possible.
Right now, all seems relatively quiet. But rest assured, there remains plenty of euphoria and gas to drive many more cycles of comedy gold production. Ether huffers need something to throw their ETH at. The more complicated; the better! Given some of the creations that have been made in NXT, for instance, a few more years of creativity on ETH should yield some very complicated and pop-corn rich smart contracts.

Researcher’s Narrative:

I was relaxing in my office, waiting for business. It was a dingy little one-room affair, but it would serve for now. Particularly with no clients. I had poured myself a double shot, and was about to enjoy it, when suddenly the door opened.
A man walked in, familiar somehow although I couldn't place him. I reached out my hand instinctively, and instead of shaking it, he handed me a dollar.
"Hello?"
He pointed at the sign in the window, advertising a promotional one dollar gold survey for the first client. Always astute, I quickly surmised he wished to hire me.
"Of course, sir! What coin would you like?"
"Ethereum."
"Certainly! And may I have your name for the log?"
"Tyler Durdan."
And with that, my newest client left. I downed my double and poured a generous triple to follow it. This was going to be a long day.
Ethereum was the ultimate prize in my line of work. The coin which proved the adage that truth is stranger than fiction; which had proved itself a lucrative source of comedy gold.
And who am I? Guy Noir, private comedy gold surveyor. I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Premined scamcoins crashing on noname exchanges. I watched popcorn glitter in the dark on forgotten the BCT threads. Popcorn junkies strung out on a high, and I've delivered them more comedy gold, popcorn, salt and butter. There is never enough.
A dark night in a world that never sleeps and knows how to keep its secrets...But on the 12th Floor of the Acme Building, one man is still trying to find the answers to life's persistent questions: Guy Noir, private comedy gold surveyor.
Thank you, Narrator. Now, as I was saying, Ethereum is overloaded with gold. But the core is pretty straightforward:
Ethereum promised "smart contracts". Immutable. Turing-complete. This was what Bitcoin lacked. The bee's knees. Crypto 2.0. What could go wrong?
We'll skip over the "Inthereum" period. Perhaps the vaporware criticism was never fair: from their version, they had Proof-of-Concept code; they went through some iterations and eventually got to release.
Let's note clearly that there was plenty of time to determine some sort of official policy for what to do about a buggy or improperly written contract losing money. In Bitcoin, every hack has been a SFYL event, although it’s true that a bug in the coin itself was hard forked away before. Mt. Gox tried to blame malleability, but there was never a fork to try to recover funds. In Ethereum, immutability was often talked about. So far as I saw in skimming, “what if” scenarios to undo bugs wasn’t brought up front-and-center. Nor was immutability being debated that I saw.
So Ethereum releases. A major contract is launched, The DAO, which gets an astonishing portion of ETH invested. The world's largest crowd sale as they ultimately called it. All the major players in ETH buy into it, including Vitalik Buterin, the creator of Ethereum and the best name in cryptocurrency.
Just as they're starting to get into the comedy gold that The DAO doesn't really have a purpose, a bug is discovered. And just as its leader is assuring everyone that no funds are at risk, the funds start being drained out of the contract by an unknown party.
And suddenly immutable means "immutable unless we screw up on the biggest contract which everyone important has invested in heavily". Ethereum ultimately hard-forks to return investor funds and basically unwind The DAO. After claiming that the bug was in the contract, the coin itself is hard forked to fix the issue. And the first Ethereum clone results, one which simply does not follow the new hard fork.
So the natural question is: when can a contract be changed? In the first page of the Ethereum launch, this question was implied by asking about what would happen if there were an assassination market hosted by a smart contract on Ethereum. Of course, in reality, Ethereum is not really functional enough at present to enforce such a contract, but the question remains in case Ethereum were to actually attain a functioning smart contract platform.

Researcher’s Rant

Filed for psych eval
Twenty pages into the BCT ANN, I believe I have contracted cancer, again. I’m reminded of why I don’t generally go on BCT. As bad as altcoin forums tend to be for their circlejerking, it’s almost better than the, well, there’s really no way to put it other than FUD that inevitably appears in response to anything. Of course, it’s not paid shilling so much as it is willful and vocal ignorance. For all the critiques in that thread, most of them are utter nonsense and simply are misreading the initial information. On the other hand, it’s January 27th in the thread by now, with February 1st and the pre-sale start, and they don’t have their “prospectus” up yet. I also haven’t seen the change in mining rate yet.
Side note: eMunie; wtf? I guess I missed something? Either it’s gone through a namechange or it’s dead, because a quick coinmarketcap search didn’t find anything. A comedy gold mining project for another day.
Great; spoiler alert: fundraiser delayed apparently, so even more cancer to read through in that thread on the way to getting to a prospectus!
The first 44 pages of the thread was summarized thus: “I want to believe. Why are you not speaking to us? Throw me a bone. Just tell me what I want to hear, and I'll gladly throw my money in.” [ 5 ] Would that I had only had to read that quote rather than all 44 pages, and facing many more.
Pages and comments dragged on as I waded through the low-grade popcorn. When would this prospectus be released, so my torment would end? Oh god: a side-thread shows that by the time they get to April, there’s still no prospectus or presale date or estimate of when there may be a date [ 6 ]. It’s time to give up on reading through the cancerous mainthread on BCT and start jumping ahead pages to find the pre-sale and prospectus.
Okay, finally, in July, they release documents and start the sale [ 7 ]. Good enough.
I have mountains of links on my desk. Comedy gold is overflowing, but this is a survey expedition, not a mining operation. But by the time it’s surveyed, there’s always so much gold lined up to mine it gets hard to leave it behind and leave with the samples.
It’s time to hammer out some copy and close this file.
Folks, we hope you’ve enjoyed this descent into madness and comedy gold brought to you by the Comedy Gold Survey Company and our patron Tyler Durden. Do you need more comedy gold in your life? Of course you do! So please donate today; every $1 helps! I’ve added a new special: $5 lets you choose the next coin to be surveyed!
Thanks again to Tyler Durden, and I will now be re-watching Fight Club and questioning my sanity. Cheers y’all!
