Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet

A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.

Bitcoin Tor

Subject: PSA: Make your node reachable by using Tor
There is usually a post every few months with someone asking for tips on how to make their node reachable. It's always a hard question to answer since its impossible to know what type of routers and firewalls they are going to have to punch through. This is especially difficult in college dorms. One cheap (and easy) way around it is to to just jump through a few extra steps to make your bitcoin node a bitcoin onion node. Tor is great about traversing routers and firewalls like a hot knife through butter.
  1. Download, verify1, install and initialize Gpg4win
  2. Download, verify2, install, and launch Tor Browser
  3. Download, verify3, install, and launch Bitcoin Core
  4. Launch an Admin command console in the directory with tor.exe
  5. Install the Tor service: tor.exe --service install
  6. CD to service dir: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\tor
  7. Create and edit a file called torrc with the contents suggested below
  8. Restart tor: tor --service stop && tor --service start
  9. Record your onion hostname: type .\HiddenService\hostname as
  10. Add the bitcoin.conf options suggested below
  11. Restart the bitcoin-qt program
  12. Verify node connectivity at https://bitnodes.io/nodes/-8333/

torrc file: (replace c:\windows with the proper path as needed)

```

Change to C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming

Log notice file \tor\service.log HiddenServiceDir \tor\HiddenService HiddenServiceVersion 2 HiddenServicePort 8333 127.0.0.1:8333 HiddenServicePort 18333 127.0.0.1:18333 ```

bitcoin.conf file: (entries to be ADDED)

```

Change to what you recorded earlier

onion=127.0.0.1:9050 listen=1 externalip= discover=1 ```

Why aren't Bitcoin, Tor, and VPNs illegal?

submitted by Opening-Mess to NoStupidQuestions [link] [comments]

There are live pure p2p nets for bittorrent, bitcoin, tor, ethereum, and ipfs, but I dont see any live p2p nets for games other than hybrids of centrally controlled systems optimized by p2p. Are there any pure p2p games live?

I dont see any in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peer-to-peer#Other_P2P_applications
I dont know if any exist or not. I know its hard technically cuz of the lag often found in p2p computing such as in ethereum's minimum lag of 15 second cycles. But I know it can be done cuz sidechains such as the Raiden network plug into ethereum to lower the lag and sync to the core blockchain less often than sync between those active together. I'm not saying it has to be blockchain, but merkle forest is a useful data structure and by itself adds no significant lag. Thats why I think it might exist. Does it, and where can I study this pattern in the world as it occurs live?

Why I'm taking my bitcoin tor hidden service offline.

For several years, I've been running my bitcoin node as a tor hidden service. This was not because I am paranoid about people finding out that I use bitcoin, or even that I am running a node, but because some people require extreme privacy when it comes to interacting with the bitcoin network. Some people living in more repressive countries than mine might seriously be worried about punitive actions, or perhaps about attempts to deanonymize their pseudonymous transactions.
I am finally taking this node (wxvp2d4rspn7tqyu.onion) offline. This decision is based largely on two factors: bitcoin governance, and bitcoin fungibility (that is the lack of, in both cases).
I really believe that the ideas implemented in bitcoin will have a transformative effect on all our lives. Unfortunately, with all the good that bitcoin has done, there have been no substantial innovations (from a user perspective) in over at least 4 years. This appears to be largely the result of toxic personalities in the self-titled "core" development team, but also in the fact that the core developers have not put any effort into creating a reasonable governance model. I understand that governance is a thorny issue for a decentralized project, but given that there is no governance, the path of least resistance is for the status quo to prevail---indefinitely.
Second, bitcoin is still, and will likely forever remain, pseudonymous. Though there have been attempts at adding privacy features to bitcoin (like ZeroCoin, for example), anyone can still track all of your transactions. On top of this, it is becoming easier and easier to deanonymize users (in part because they use bitcoin to buy things in the real world). One of the defining characteristics of a currency is fungibility, and the bitcoin developers and community appears not to care at all about this "feature". As a result, competing cryptocurrencies that are (or are close to being) fungible have appeared. Based on their increase in marketcap over the past couple years, it is clear that fungibility is not just a small "niche" market as many once thought.
In my opinion, both core and the miner community are dysfunctional. I really have no desire to associate with either of these communities anymore, nor to try to defend the bitcoin community to newcomers. I thought that perhaps the shock of seeing the "Bitcoin dominance ratio" go below 50% would motivate everyone to work together, but nothing happened. Ethereum passing the marketcap of Bitcoin will be another shock (as will be the following to do so), but I also expect no changes to occur following this outcome either. Perhaps Bitcoin will continue to be used as a store of value, but it will never be used in daily commerce by ordinary people as it was meant to be.
There are now several alternatives that are better than bitcoin, and I can only advise everyone to move on, and get over it. Bitcoin was a nice experiment, but it failed in achieving its goals miserably.
Bye bye, and good luck.

Privacy Lesson: Dark Web Drug Dealer Arrested while Traveling to World Beard Championships (Bitcoin, Tor and so much more...)

Gal ‘OxyMonster' Vallerius, a suspected Dream Market drug kingpin was arrested while traveling from France to Austin for the world beard-growing championships. But it wasn't his beard that tripped him up.
When he landed in Atlanta en route to Austin, authorities inspected his laptop which confirmed his identity of "OxyMontster."
The Miami Herald article by Jay Weaver says:
Vallerius’ laptop also contained the Tor browser, which allows users to conceal their true internet protocol addresses on that network; his log-in credential for Dream Market, an eBay-type marketplace for illegal narcotics and drug paraphernalia; and $500,000 worth of bitcoin.
Why would someone so sophisticated carry a damning laptop through customs?!/!!
But what led to agents suspect Vallerius in the first place is a real-life privacy lesson. The article continues:
Agents analyzed his posts on the Dream Market forum, including tips on how to stay anonymous on the dark web. In August, agents learned that “OxyMonster” was using a certain bitcoin address for the sales transactions. They soon analyzed incoming and outgoing transactions from that bitcoin address and discovered that most of them went to Vallerius on Localbitcoins.com
DEA agents soon found that Vallerius has Instagram and Twitter accounts. They compared the writing style of “OxyMonster” on the Dream Market forum to the writing style of Vallerius on his social media accounts. “Agents discovered many similarities in the use of words and punctuation, including: the word “cheers,” double exclamation marks, frequent use of quotation marks, and intermittent French posts.”
So in the end, it was Vallerius' writing style and social media accounts that tipped off authorities.
What to do about that for those of us law-abiding types who simply want a bit of privacy?
