Development
Wallets - Guarda has now integrated digibyte on their web-based Wallet and mobile Android wallet now out!! - Here is the offical link https://twitter.com/GuardaWallet/status/997481147662729226
The https://www.digi-id.io website and release went off with a boom! The developer bounty to have digi id integrated into the mobile wallets is complete. Devina.es a spanish news website is adopting digi-id and a plugin for WHMCS, https://whmcsnow.com/digi-id-addon.html as well as implementing it for others and their customers is out! The open-source plugin is available here: https://github.com/evilmouse69/Digi-ID-for-WHMCS/.
“DigiID is to also be FIDO compliant and bind to the TLS layer so it doesn’t need to be a zero sum game like these people seem to be advocating.” This would allow Digi-ID to compete against facebook to login to different websites as an authentication method.
Here is an excellent animated video for an overall overview of the Digital ID technology - https://youtu.be/pLrQycud5GI
CoinTippy is a tipping platform which you can use as a wallet. Currently these currencies are supported: DGB, BTC, LTC, ZEC, DASH. There are couple of unique features like transferring funds between social accounts (atm it works with Telegram, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and Twitch) ( If you get a donation as a streamer on Twitch, you can re-send it to your viewers or send it to someone via Twitter :) Feel free to reach out and ask any questions about these projects.
Digibyte has the ability for smart contract support. I bring this up as it has been a question asked before. This smart contract support is based on the same language as Bitcoin Script. There currently are no good docs or examples which is something a few of the core devs are going to be working on next once the mobile wallets are shipped. To check out the more info check out the github link here: https://github.com/ivy-lang/ivy-bitcoin

Why Bitcoin? Bank of America Services Down Across U.S.

Why Bitcoin? Bank of America Services Down Across U.S.

Bank of America
According to some, the need for Bitcoin (BTC) and decentralized digital money was just validated as a financial institution in the U.S. has suddenly gone offline.
Over the past hour, reports have flooded in from thousands of Twitter users, including an NBC reporter, regarding Bank of America’s services. These users, which again, count in the thousands, have said that they are unable to access the institution’s services, both online and in the real world. Both the firm’s login portal for clients and ATMs are claimed by Bank of America clients to be down.
“Looks like all online account services for Bank of America are currently offline or not allowing logins. This is the first I’ve seen a major bank have an outage like this,” an individual wrote, adding that there is no clear way to tell if the bank is seeing a service outage.
But per statistics from Downdectctor.com, there have been over 10,000 “problems” reported with Bank of America over the past two hours, with outages spanning all populated regions of the U.S, including Los Angeles, Seattle, Austin, New York, Chicago, and so on.
This could be normal server maintenance — companies at this scale have to tune-up their servers every once and a while — yet many on Twitter and on forums claim that this bout of downtime comes unannounced. One netizen even went as far as to say that a Bank of America representative he was on the phone with didn’t even know what was going on.
Below is the search interest chart for “Bank of America” from Google Trends. It largely implies that the issues began at around 19:25 PST, and have persisted since then.

Despite the critical situation with Bitcoin, Coinme from Seattle manufactures ATMs for Bitcoin, and Constar manufactures cash terminals. This news arrived in the media on January 17, 2019. The network of payment machines is located in grocery stores, retail stores and pharmacies. The geography of the prevalence of terminals is extensive. These are Great Britain and America, Ireland and Canada. However, critics have already appeared who consider 4% of the commission plus the trading spread, otherwise the exchange difference between the bid and ask is an inhuman amount.
A new platform Bit.Team allows not to lose on the exchange of cryptocurrency! Only 0.2%! This is a P2P exchanger.

Ether Thief Remains Mystery Year After $55 Million Digital Heist

Ether Thief Remains Mystery Year After $55 Million Digital Heist 2017-06-13 08:00:18.224 GMT
By Matthew Leising (Bloomberg Markets) -- Summer colds are the worst, and Emin Gün Sirer had caught a wicked bug from his 1-year-old son. So it was with watering eyes and a stuffy nose that the associate professor of computer science at Cornell found himself working from his sickbed on Monday, June 13, 2016. Gün—everyone calls him Gün—couldn’t tear himself away from his laptop. He had another type of bug in his sights, a flaw in a line of computer code he feared put $250 million at risk of being stolen. It wasn’t just any code. It was the guts of the newest breakthrough in software design related to blockchain, the novel combination of decentralized computing and cryptography that gave life to the virtual currency bitcoin in 2009. Since then, the promise of blockchain to transform industries from finance to health care has captured imaginations in corporate boardrooms and governments alike. Yet what the Turkish-born professor was exploring that Monday was the next leap forward from bitcoin, what’s known as the ethereum blockchain. Rather than moving bitcoin from one user to another, the ethereum blockchain hosts fully functioning computer programs called smart contracts—essentially agreements that enforce themselves by means of code rather than courts. That means they can automate the life cycle of bond payments, say, or ensure that pharmaceutical companies can authenticate the sources of their drugs. Yet smart contracts are also new and mostly untested. Like all software, they are only as reliable as their coding—and Gün was pretty sure he’d found a big problem. In an email sent to one of his graduate students, Philip Daian, at 7:30 p.m., Gün noted that the smart contract he was looking at might have a problem—on line 666. (They say the devil is in the details.) Gün feared the bug could allow a hacker to make unlimited ATM-like withdrawals from the millions, even if the attacker, who’d have needed to be an investor, had only $10 in his account. This staggering amount of money lived inside a program called a decentralized autonomous organization, or DAO. Dreamed up less than a year earlier and governed by a smart contract, the DAO was intended to democratize how ethereum projects are funded. Thousands of dreamers and schemers and developers who populate the cutting edge of computer science, most of them young, had invested in the DAO. This was real money, a quarter of a billion dollars, their money, meant to build a better version of the world, and every cent was at risk. Gün, who wears his dark hair short and looks a decade younger than his 45 years, had already been tracking and publicizing flaws in the DAO’s design. A few weeks earlier, on May 27, along with two colleagues, he’d urged investors to stop buying into the DAO until security issues could be fixed. It had been too late, however, and the program went live the next day. Smart contracts such as the DAO are built to be entirely reliant on their code once released on the ethereum blockchain. That meant the DAO code couldn’t be fixed. Other blockchain experts—including Peter Vessenes, co-founder of the Bitcoin Foundation—had also pointed out security flaws in the smart contract, but Gün appears to be the first to pinpoint the flaw that put the money in jeopardy. The problem was the code was so new that no one knew what to ­expect—or even if there was actually a problem in the first place. Gün had his doubts, too. This wasn’t even his job. He does this for fun. Daian didn’t think they’d found anything either. Over email, he said, “We might be up the creek ;).” Later, when Gün pointed to the error in line 666, Daian replied, “Don’t think so.” Gün says, “We don’t sound the alarm bell every time we find a bug that seems suspicious.” Instead, he went to bed to try to kill his cold—the one bug he knew to be real. “I was too miserable to sort it out,” he says. Four days later, Christoph Jentzsch lay on the floor of his home office, taking deep breaths, trying not to panic. It was Friday morning, and software developers all over the Western world were waking up to the news that the DAO, which Jentzsch had created, was being attacked. Gün had been right. Jentzsch, who has dark hair and a perpetual five o’clock shadow, lives with his family in the Mittweida region of Germany, a rural spot not far from the Czech border. Mornings in the Jentzsch household are a whirlwind as he and his wife get their five children—age 2 to 9—fed and off to school. Yet today, after his brother Simon woke him with a call that the DAO was being hacked, Jentzsch had to ignore his familial duties. “You’ve got the kids,” he told his wife. “I have an emergency.”
This is the story of one of the largest digital heists in history. And while you may have heard last year that hackers breached Swift, the bank-to-bank messaging system, and stole $81 million from Bangladesh’s central bank, the DAO attack is in a different category altogether. It played out in front of anyone who cared to watch and couldn’t be stopped. Just as the global WannaCry ransomware attack in May laid bare weaknesses in computer operating systems, the DAO hack exposed the early frailties of smart-contract security and left many in the community shaken because they hadn’t found the bug in time. The aftermath would eventually pit good hackers against bad ones—the white hats vs. the black hats—in the strange and futuristic- sounding DAO Wars. The roots of the DAO belong to an idea Jentzsch borrowed from another internet-fueled phenomenon: crowdfunding. The 32- year-old Jentzsch, a theoretical physicist by training, and a few colleagues started Slock.it in 2015. As they considered how to fund the company, Jentzsch approached it as many had—sell a digital currency, effectively a token, to raise cash. But why should each new startup have to program its own initial coin offering? Jentzsch wondered. What if one huge fund ruled them all? He introduced his idea to the world at DevCon 1 in London in November 2015. “What is the blockchain way of creating a company?” Jentzsch asked his audience. “Of course, it has to be a DAO.” It would work like this: Ether, a virtual currency like bitcoin, would be used to fund and develop applications on the ethereum blockchain—things such as making a music app similar to iTunes or a ride-sharing service along the lines of Uber. Investors would buy DAO tokens with their ether; the tokens would allow them to vote to fund projects they liked. If the app they backed made money, the token holder shared in the profit. In the six months he spent creating the DAO, Jentzsch thought it would raise $5 million. From April 30 to May 28, the DAO crowdfunding pulled in $150 million. That’s when ether traded just below $12. As the price of ether rose in the following weeks to $20.75 the day before the attack, so too did the value of the DAO, putting a $250 million target on this thing Jentzsch had unknowingly brought into the world with a fatal, original sin. “Our hope was it would be the center of a decentralized sharing economy,” says Jentzsch, who now regrets not capping the amount raised. “For such a big experiment, it was way too early.” In the weeks after the attack, Jentzsch and the rest of the ethereum community would come to grips with their own crisis that, writ small, echoed the bank bailouts and government rescues of 2008. “It became too big to fail,” he says. But why would anyone invest in the DAO in the first place? It has something to do with the strain of digital libertarianism at the heart of the ethereum community, much like the set of beliefs that led to the birth of bitcoin. Think of bitcoin as the first global currency whose use can’t be stopped by governments or corporations; on top of that, bitcoin is almost impossible to hack. Ethereum, then, is another level beyond. It’s an uncensorable global computer. As amazing and unprecedented as that is, it’s also a bit terrifying. Brought to life, the DAO ended up staggering off the table and turning on the community that wanted it so badly. Accustomed to working into the night to stay in touch with colleagues in North America, Jentzsch blows off steam by jogging or kayaking on the nearby Zschopau River. Yet on that Friday morning, he had the more pressing task of pulling himself up off the floor and dealing with the attack. “I went into emergency mode: Don’t try to save the DAO,” he says. “No, it’s over.”
It was far from over. Several hours later and half a world away from the Jentzsch household in Mittweida, Alex Van de Sande was waking up in his apartment in the Copacabana neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro. The baby-faced ethereum developer had been born in the small fishing village of Santa Cruz Cabrália in the Bahia region of Brazil and moved with his parents to Rio when he was about 3 years old. These days he’s known as “avsa” on Reddit and Twitter. After reaching for his phone to see why it was blowing up with Skype messages, he turned to his wife and said, “Remember when I was telling you about that huge unhackable pile of money?” She nodded. “It’s been hacked,” he told her. His first thought was to get his DAO tokens out. He owned about 100,000 of them, valued at about $15,000 at the time. He’s the lead designer of the Ethereum Wallet app, a program that allows him and anyone else to interact with the blockchain. Van de Sande scrambled to log in to it, but his password didn’t work. It was glitching, and as he worked to fix it, his panic subsided. He realized he shouldn’t be bailing on the DAO but trying to save it. And to do that, he needed Griff. Griff Green, who’s worked variously as a massage therapist in Los Angeles and a community organizer in Seattle, is one of only a handful of people in the world who holds a master’s degree in digital currencies. He got it online, natch, from the University of Nicosia. A self-described “dreamer,” the 32-year- old is the closest thing Ethereumville has to a mayor. Green knows everybody; in fact, he’d been the first to relay word of the attack to Simon, Jentzsch’s brother and a co-founder of Slock.it. Green had been working for Slock.it for about six months by then and woke up that morning in the house belonging to Jentzsch’s mom in Mittweida. Jentzsch is one of nine children, so his mother had a spare bedroom where she could put Green up for a few days. Using his extensive contacts, Green started identifying as many people as he could who were interacting with the DAO—going so far as to ask strangers to send pictures or scans of their IDs—in an attempt to sort friend from foe. And then something strange happened: The attack stopped working. In the six hours since the attack began, the thief had managed to steal 30 percent of the DAO’s 12 million ether—which that day equaled about $55 million. “We don’t even understand why the guy had stopped,” says Van de Sande. Now Green raced to protect the remaining 70 percent of the DAO the attacker hadn’t stolen. Once Van de Sande got in touch with Green in Germany, along with two or three others, the foundation was laid for what would become known as the Robin Hood group—white hat hackers who’d devise a bold good-guy plan to drain the remaining DAO. To save the DAO, they’d have to steal the remaining ether, then give it back to its rightful owners. And yet as they scrambled that Friday, qualms emerged within the group. “What does it even mean to hack something?” Van de Sande asks. No one knew if what they were about to do was legal. Also, wouldn’t their hack look just as bad as the theft they were trying to stop? Then there were the practical issues. “Who pushes the button?” he remembers wondering. Doing so would initiate their counterattack and alert the community. “Someone has to push the button.” The price of ether the night before the attack had hit an all-time high of just above $20. News of the hack sent it tumbling to $15 by the end of Friday, wiping out almost a half- billion dollars in market value. At that price, the DAO still held $125 million, and the Robin Hood group worried the attack would resume. They might be the only line of defense if it did, so Van de Sande agreed to use his DAO tokens to fuel their counterattack, thereby becoming a public face of the group. At this point, it might help to think of the DAO as the spacecraft in Alien after Ripley initiates the self-destruct sequence. To flee, she’s forced to use an escape pod. DAO investors had to initiate a similar sequence to deploy escape pods that would allow them to get their ether out of the DAO. The code that dictated the escape pods’ behavior is where the bug lived, so to steal the remaining DAO funds the Robin Hood group would have to be in a pod to exploit the flaw—and because of the way Jentzsch wrote the DAO, they had only a short window of time and just a few pods to choose from. A few minutes before launching the attack, Van de Sande joked on the group’s Skype chat, “Let’s go rob a bank!” No one laughed. “Not everyone really appreciated the humor,” he says. In his Copacabana apartment, Van de Sande readied to push the button on his laptop. Then, suddenly, he lost his internet connection. His router was down. “I was like, What the f--- is going on here?” he says. He had less than 30 minutes left to execute the Robin Hood hack. He frantically called NET, his Brazilian internet service provider, but couldn’t get past the automated customer ­service experience. He says the robotic voice told him, “We see there’s an internet issue in your neighborhood.” The irony was not lost on him: Here he was trying to steal millions of dollars from a robot but was being waylaid by another robot. “Then we missed,” he says. The window closed. He went from the high of feeling like they were about to come to the rescue of the vulnerable DAO to the crushing low of having their international connection severed by NET’s breakdown. He took his dog, Sapic—named after the one in Pedro Almodóvar’s All About My Mother—for a walk, then crawled into bed, defeated. The next morning was Saturday, and Van de Sande tried to reconvene the Robin Hood group to infiltrate ­another escape pod. But folks were busy and couldn’t get together. “We felt like the worst hackers in history,” Van de Sande says. “We were foiled by bad internet and family commitments.”
Who, exactly, were they at war with? No one really knows, but there are some clues. One address the attacker used is 0xF35e2cC8E6523d683eD44870f5B7c C785051a77D. Got that? Like everything else in a blockchain, a user’s address is an anonymous string of characters. But every address leaves behind a history on the blockchain that’s open for examination. Not that it makes sense to 99.9 percent of humankind, but Green gets it. To pull off his heist, the attacker needed to create a contract that would interact with the DAO. He did so on June 15 and deployed it in the early morning hours two days later, according to Green. Once activated, the attack contract started sending about $4,000 worth of ether through the attacker’s account every three or four minutes to drain the DAO. But where did the original money to fund the attack come from? To interact with the ethereum blockchain, every contract must be funded by an amount of ether. This attack contract was funded by two addresses, but tracing it further back becomes tricky. That’s because the second address used an exchange called ShapeShift to send 52 ether into its account on June 14. ShapeShift doesn’t collect any information on its users and says it turns one virtual currency, such as bitcoin, into another, like ether, in less than 10 seconds. While there are valid reasons for using ShapeShift, it’s also a great way to launder digital assets and ­cover your tracks. After the attack contract stopped working, the thief needed to deploy it again, says Green. He tried but failed, and after a few more transactions, the hack whimpered to an end. (One possible reason the attack stopped, Green says, is that the hacker’s tokens became corrupted, which means he had no way to exploit the bug.) We know this limited amount of one-sided information from the blockchain’s public record. Digital asset exchanges see both sides. An internal investigation by one such exchange concluded that the DAO attacker was likely part of a group, not a lone wolf, based in Switzerland, according to an executive there who wouldn’t speak on the record or allow the company’s name to be used. ­Exchanges are in the unique position of being able to analyze the trading activity of their customers because they know who they are, even if they’re anonymous on the blockchain. The executive says the exchange shared the analysis with the Boston office of the FBI, though there’s been no further contact since October of last year. Cornell’s Gün says he also spoke to the Boston office of the FBI—and to agents in the New York office and to the New York State Attorney General’s Office. “It’s very difficult to coordinate an attack of this kind without leaving breadcrumbs behind,” Gün says. He encouraged the FBI to look at the ethereum testnet, where programmers can run their code in a safe environment to work out kinks. The attacker wouldn’t just launch such a complicated hack without testing it, Gün says he told federal officials, and the feds might be able to get clues to his identity there. Gün says he also pointed them to addresses linked to the attacker, such as the one described above, that were listed by his grad student Daian on his blog. (The FBI declined to comment.) “I’m absolutely amazed. Why has no one traced this back and found out who did it?” asks Stephan Tual, the third co-founder of Slock.it. “It still bugs me to this day, because what that person has done is incredibly unethical.”
On Tuesday, four days after the initial attack, the hacker returned and somehow resumed the heist. The Robin Hood group had feared this moment would come and was ready. Early Sunday morning they’d finally managed to convene online and successfully infiltrate an escape pod, but had held off their counterattack. Now they had no choice. One strike against the group was their distance from one another—one in Rio, others scattered about Europe. (Some of the group’s members didn’t want to be identified for this story.) It was important that they coordinate their activities because, like in Charlie’s Angels, they all had different specialties: Green the community organizer, Van de Sande the public face, others who wrote the Robin Hood group attack contracts. So Van de Sande needed to be walked through the step-by-step hacking process they were about to unleash, because that wasn’t his area of expertise. “I’ll be honest, I was excited,” Green says. “This is the craziest thing that’s ever happened to me. This is the craziest thing that’s almost ever happened to anyone.” Whether it was legal remains an unanswered question. “You literally have cyber ninjas warring on the blockchain,” says Vessenes, the programming expert. “What they’re doing is almost certainly illegal, but they’re claiming it’s for the greater good.” And now it was Van de Sande’s job to let the community know that the Robin Hood group counterattack was benign. He took to Twitter, where he wrote “DAO IS BEING SECURELY DRAINED. DO NOT PANIC.” A nod to the classic Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, his plea to not panic was met with all the snark and real-life concern Twitter can handle. “NOTHING SAYS DO NOT PANIC LIKE ALL CAPS,” one user responded. “#RealLife is more exciting than

MrRobot !!” tweeted another. Yet as the Robin Hood group attack

gained steam, they noticed something strange and worrisome—the attacker was with them in every escape pod. “We escaped the mother ship, but now we’re alone in space with the alien we were trying to escape,” says Van de Sande. This was a big problem. Because of how Jentzsch wrote his code, the Robin Hood group would have to wait several weeks before they could secure the ether they recovered. Yet if the attacker was in that escape pod with the group, he could just follow them—what’s known as a stalking attack. If the hacker stalked the Robin Hood group, the ether wasn’t really safe after all. “The game only ends when one of these parties doesn’t show up to fight,” Van de Sande says. This, in essence, is the heart of the DAO Wars, the never-ending battle that would have to be waged to keep the recovered ether safe. If only there were a way to reverse the theft once and for all.
What happened next is one of the strangest and most contentious episodes in blockchain’s early history. The morning of July 20 dawned cool and clear in Ithaca, N.Y., the home of Cornell. A weeklong ethereum boot camp on campus had brought developers and programmers from all over the world to town. The mood was anxious, but not because the workshops were about to begin. This was the day the ethereum community would decide to rewrite the past. The weeks since the DAO hack had been filled with acrimonious debate as developers, coders, investors, and other community members considered their options to undo the theft. As the Robin Hood group battled the attacker mostly in private, a public debate was raging. The white hat hackers weren’t the only ones trying to save the DAO. Jentzsch worked almost around the clock, fielding hundreds of requests from DAO investors on what they should do. Vitalik Buterin, 23, who created the ethereum blockchain before he was 20, became a focal point as he led the community through their options. In short, what they could do was change the ethereum blockchain to fix the DAO, but only if they got a majority of computers running the network to agree to a software update. Pull that off, and it’s as though the attack never happened. This is known as a hard fork. The decision stirred such strong reactions that it remains controversial a year later, both within the ethereum community and with bitcoin users who insist a blockchain’s history is never to be tampered with. In an interview in October, Buterin was unapologetic about pushing for the change. “Some bitcoin users see the hard fork as in some ways violating their most fundamental values,” said Buterin, who didn’t respond to requests to speak specifically about this story. “I personally think these fundamental values, pushed to such extremes, are silly.” Within the ethereum community, at least, Buterin’s views won the day, and computer nodes all over the world accepted the fork. Contained in block 1,920,000, the fix to the DAO was simple and did only one thing—if you had ether invested in it, you could now get it out. But why hadn’t the attacker made off with his money? It had been more than a month. The same code that exposed the DAO to the theft, in the end, enabled the ether to be returned. Everything to do with the DAO is a parameter: rules, if-then statements, and more rules that are all finalized before the program is set loose. One of these parameters stated that anyone wanting to get their ether out of the DAO had to wait a certain amount of time—27 days after the initial request, then another seven days. This fail-safe, written by Jentzsch, applied to the attacker as well. So even though somebody had effectively robbed a bank, he then had to wait 34 days before crossing the street to make his getaway. While he was waiting, the money was stolen back. A month after the original heist, the ether thief now had nothing to show for his caper. Back on the Cornell campus, ethereum boot camp attendees celebrated. The next day, Gün brought Champagne to the session he was teaching. He’d pasted makeshift labels on the Chandon bottles with a picture of the utensil that said, “Congratulations on the successful fork.” Then something else unexpected happened. The original ethereum blockchain, the one with the DAO attack in it, kept growing. Imagine a hard fork is a branch of a tree that sprouts in a different direction at the end of the main limb. The end of that limb is supposed to wither after a hard fork, but here it continued to grow as a small group of users continued to process transactions on that version of the blockchain. Instead of dying, this became a second form of ethereum, quickly dubbed ethereum classic, complete with a digital currency that now had value. Even in the ­science fiction world of blockchain, this was an unprecedented turn of events. It meant the DAO attacker suddenly had about 3.6 million ethereum classic coins in his DAO account, known as the DarkDAO, which were slowly gaining in value. The Robin Hood group held about 8.4 million, because in this parallel universe they still controlled 70 percent of the DAO funds they had recovered. The Robin Hood group couldn’t believe it. “We did everything to avoid this, but now we’re being dragged back into this fight,” Van de Sande says. Now, the bitcoin supporters who viewed the hard fork as a violation of the core values of blockchain could back up their belief by buying ethereum classic. That’s exactly what entrepreneur Barry Silbert, a heavyweight in bitcoin circles, did. “Keep in mind, the original chain is ethereum classic,” he says. “The fork is ethereum.” Putting his money where his mouth is, Silbert’s firm, Grayscale Investments, recently issued an investment thesis outlining the benefits to ethereum classic over ethereum. A section heading sums up the rationale: “The DAO and the Death of Principles.” Alexis Roussel, co-founder of Bity.com, a digital currency broker in Switzerland, still marvels at the aftereffects of the hard fork and the wild world of the blockchain. “This is something that doesn’t happen in traditional finance,” he says. “If something happens with Apple, you don’t suddenly have a clone of Apple.”
It’s been about a year since the DAO attack, enough time to take stock of what went wrong. Van de Sande is eager to move on. “It was really just a blip,” he says. “We are ready to move past it and leave the DAO story behind us.” Green, who’s organizing an ethereum conference at this summer’s Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert, has kept a sense of humor about it. “The Robin Hood group was just a s--- show,” he says with a laugh. “I hope the movie portrays it better than it actually was.” As for the bug itself, apparently many smart people looked at the code before Gün but missed one major flaw. The order of commands in the code allowed DAO token holders to withdraw any profit they’d made from their investments. It reads “withdrawRewardFor(msg.sender)” and adds, almost improbably, a note to anyone reading the code that says, “be nice, and get his rewards.” That’s line 667—let’s call it “The Neighbor of the Beast Bug.” If the withdraw line had come after these lines:
totalSupply -= balances[msg.sender]; balances[msg.sender] = 0; paidOut[msg.sender] = 0; return true;
the attack wouldn’t have been possible, Jentzsch says. But if the code had been in the correct order, the reward parameter wouldn’t have worked. As for the note, this line of code was meant to allow investors to withdraw any profit—“Reward”—their investments had earned. Instead it became one of the biggest backdoors in hacking history. It would have been better to not pay rewards during the split function from the DAO, what we’ve been referring to here as the escape pods, according to Jentzsch. Another decision he made when he had no idea of the bug shows how quirky and unforgiving code can be. “If the capital ‘T’ in line 666 had been a small ‘t,’ that would also have prevented the hack,” he says. Jentzsch has many regrets but insists no one was aware of the specific problems in lines 666-667 (other observers had pointed to flaws in other lines, just not here). Had more people looked, “it would have made no difference at all,” he says. “If you don’t know what to look for in a security audit, you won’t find it.” Even Gün, who had it in his grasp, let it go. “I still missed it,” he says. Green’s emotions are still raw related to Gün. “I actually got really pissed at him about this,” Green says. “He started bragging about how he found the bug.” He adds that it was “very irresponsible of him to not tell anyone of his inkling.” Still, Green “respects the hell out of Gün” and says they’ve since made amends. Asked to recount that night last June as he lay sick in bed, Gün says, “I came away from this thinking there’s potentially an issue.” But he’d consulted Daian, his grad student (“whom I trust”). Daian had said it’s “not exploitable.” Gün says that had he been certain of the danger, “I would have told people.” In a blog post that explained the mechanics of the DAO heist Daian published the night of the attack, he gave a shoutout to his professor in the acknowledgments. “Gün, we were so damn close—sorry it wasn’t quite enough this time :),” Daian wrote. As for the attacker (whoever he or she or they are) and the ethereum classic booty, Gün says, “Great, wonderful, he should cash out.” The hard fork proved it wasn’t just the DAO that needed to be fixed, but the ethereum blockchain itself. He says: “The fault lies somewhere on the system side as well.” But the fear that smart contracts are too clever by half and that by extension so is the ethereum blockchain itself—prevalent in the days following the DAO attack—has dissipated. At least that’s the market’s verdict, judging by the price of ether. After the attack, it traded from $10 to $12 for about nine months. Then in March it took off; it’s valued at $341.19 as of June 12. (That would have valued the DAO at $4.1 billion, but let’s not even go there.) Ethereum classic has risen as well, and it now trades for $18.71. Both versions of ether remain viable, in other words. The thief holds one; the revisionists, the other. Going forward, the choice is really: Whom would you rather believe? Since the hard fork, the attacker ended up making off with his ethereum classic. That means he got away with about $67.4 million, assuming the stash hasn’t been sold. Not too shabby, 0xF35e2cC8E6523d683eD44870f5B7cC785051a77D.

PSA Warning! Global MLM OneCoin / OneLife scheme in WA

Hey Seattle and WA redditors. While is comical, this post is meant to warn others of this global MLM company attempting to scam local citizens. This is a long post because of the subjects complexity. If your enjoying a gorgeous day that's precious to this season. Bookmark and come back :)
TLDR: OneCoine/Onelife is a global MLM scam using deceptive practices and has already been reported by other countries. FREE EDUCATION ON BITCOIN AND BLOCKCHAIN AT THE BOTTOM.
User black_ish reported in Bitcoin about his family investing in OneCoin and being locked into it for $100k. I've also found a Craigslist post for OneCoin in Seattle. Before this scheme claims more around my area. I'll help describe it and at the same time try educate others on cryptocurrency/digital currency, and blockchains.
You might have heard of a growing technology called Bitcoin and its blockchain features or you might be introduced to it soon. You might already know someone that does mine it or works with. I personally mine Bitcoin and Ethereum. I've found over the years Washington is home to not only large digital currency mining operations but also businesses in the ecosystem forming around it. Such as KeepKey that is based in Kirkland, they make Bitcoin wallets. If your at the UW campus you can find a Bitcoin ATM in the startup hall. Microsoft accepts it as a payment option and has made a partnership with Ethereum to explore its distributed ledger technology that differs from Bitcoin.
This is to illustrate how open-source blockchain ledgers have been embrassed in such a short amount of time. Bitcoin's success and failings is being utilized to hype many fraudulant operations and projects as well. The biggest one still around is OneCoin/Onelife. Mainly due to them restricting withdraws from the system and obscuring the source code of OneCoin's blockchain.
The OneCoin & OneLife scheme.
OneCoin was started by Ruja Ignatova in Bulgaria. The main business of Onecoin Ltd. is to sell "education" material for trading and cryptocurrency. That's loosely quoted because they've been caught plagarising published sources and branding it under them in their training packages. With each educational package they sell you, you get OneCoin tokens to be assigned to "mine". The "mining OneCoin" videos I've found like this 'Submit Tokens to Start Mining OneCoin after a split and 'How do I mine OneCoin' indicate to me it isn't mining the same way Bitcoin does. Bitcoin mines through a Proof-of-work and the outputs you get from ming are different from regular outputs with open coirse coins. OneCoin looks to be doing Proof-of-stake mining, the more coins you have the more you make over time by staking (locking them into the network) to get a higher return later on. This distinction in protocol is never mentioned but marketed as a superior blockchain to Bitcoins.
Speaking of OneCoin's blockchain it doesn't make a lot of sense. Videos on OneCoin's blockchain with numbers in it, gives odd outputs compared to the first POS coin, Peercoin. Additionally the section that is stating "CURRENT BLOCK IS MINING FROM" is a cycle of repeating hexidecimal code in the background. It is technical jibberish meant to fake the actual technical process of real mining.
I wanted to go over the technical details of this scheme first because it aims to confuse people into believing that there is a value in this OneCoin blockchain, more specifically Dr. Ruja Ignova's coin. The reason why its rolling through the United States and your hearing about it more is because of the recent announcement of "retiring this blockchain" and starting a new blockchain in October of this year. Yes economic majors you heard that correctly. Dr. Ruja Ignatova is promising to double all OneCoin's on the October reboot of OneCoin, regardless of the account. Those package names and prices should also be alarming to most.
OneCoin & OneLife around the globe.
How OneCoin grew is with big, theatrical events, always hyping the OneCoin's blockchain and showing people a private exchange, xcoinx, that shows OneCoin as a tradable coin second to Bitcoin. The exchange isn't open, since 2015, to anyone. It is used to make an artificial claim that it is a global competitor coin. Here is an actual market cap site showing the real top 10 currently traded coins, coinmarketcap.com. OneCoin cannot be traded on any exchange. A basic rule most of the exchanges abide by is the coin has to be open-source to be traded. Each exchange has different standards but open-source is a constant between them all.
Your welcome to find the long OneCoin/Onelife event videos held in Dubai and China. They showcase how they utilize high productive tricks to facilitate real facts about the packages and blockchain that I've gone over.
Another way OneCoin's membership grew is repackaging the blockchain or private payment system. Hence the reason why I'm warning about the rebrand through the US. In Zhongshan, China a group attempted to bring members to their OneCoin hierachy through calling it "Vicat Credits". If you cannot translate the page from your browser or cannot read. The fifth picture in the article shows the OneCoin brand usage.

OneCoin suspend Mastercard approvals & withdrawls from the failed Mastercard partnership. Members were also arrested.
Message to Dr Ruja Ignatoca Onecoin from X Onecoin Top Leader & host Imi Shah. This video is about a OneCoin promoter being locked out of his account and froze id's with no reason given. It illustrates the point the OneCoin system can shutoff your account without recourse.
Deceptive youtube titles attempting to associate successful people to the OneCoin brand.
BillGates clickbate - 1 and Billgates clickbate - 2. Both videos use the same video footage from an actual interview with Bill Gates being excited with blockchain technology. Hello Mr.Gates - thisisbillgates or whomever monitors the account. I'm sure the video footage was not referring to OneCoin's privatized blockchain.
Richard Branson clickbate. Hello Mr. Branson - TheRichardBranson or whomever monitors the account. I'm pretty sure Mr Branson wasn't implying that OneCoin was going to replace Bitcoin.
Both Mr. Gates and Mr. Branson likeness can be found in a recent video as well. OneCoin Latest Presentation July 2016 Best Explanation Full Update during the 11min mark. The next slide where you see Dr. Ruja Ignatova on the cover of Forbes is already controversial, didn't happen, and your welcome to search for it.
These are examples of how OneCoin members and promoters attempt to decieve the public.
Congratulations making it this far. Now comes the good part on how we can help each other.
If you know of any free legal sources to consult with users like black_ish please post them! There are probably others that need the links as well. The details on what's been experienced and how money in being locked into this MLM sounds very wrong. The promoters usually open a LLC around the area they plan to promote in.
!!Free Blockchain education!!
Since OneCoin/Onelife/OneAcademy is pretending educate others at a very high cost. I think the best idea is to educate others and let them decide what coin or blockchain they want to particpate on.

Bitcoin ATM

Are there any Bitcoin ATM’s in the downtown Seattle area? I will be visiting during New Year’s and would like to buy some Bitcoin. I live in Hawaii, where online sites like Coinbase are restricted due to local laws. I heard one by Westlake Center in downtown Seattle was removed? What else is available? Thanks.

I'm back/I never really left/my dogelution for 2015

I haven't been as active in the past few months as I like to be (not wow), because I got a new job that I really enjoy! (much wow!)
I have been tipping here and there, causing a few rainstorms, usual shibe stuff.
I've also been telling people at work (I started in October) about Dogecoin and they're loving it. Six people in my office use Dogepens and while they don't have wallets yet, whenever we have a visitor and the topic of crypto currencies, crowd sourced fund raising or cool things that happen on the internet comes up someone other than me always brings up Dogecoin and asks me to talk about it.
We've got to talk about Dogecoin in real life, day to day use.
We have a Bitcoin ATM here in Seattle and I often use that as a reference to the growing acceptance of crypto currencies, as well as the obvious examples of the projects this community has had success with in the past.
I guess what I'm getting at is that we need street level action.
I'm all for fundraisers and will never hesitate to support the right one in the name of both the recipient of our generosity and our coin, but that alone is not enough. We need people at least talking about Dogecoin.
As most of you know, Kevin Rose Tweeted yesterday about a coffee place in San Francisco telling him they only accept cash and Dogecoin. While I feel it's too exclusive to accept only Dogecoin and not other cryptos, shit! That's kinda cool.
So my Dogelution is to talk to more people about Dogecoin. Don't misunderstand me, I'm not spamming people on my lunch break. When I first started, people would ask me about my Doge shirts (I have a few.) Most thought it was just a meme but as I started talking about it they got interested and started asking me about it.
Now they bring it up and invite me to go into more detail whenever someone is around who doesn't know about it.
This is getting longer than I expected so I'll close.
Good luck with the new year, shibes!

That's loosely quoted because they've been caught plagarising published sources and branding it under them in their training packages. With each educational package they sell you, you get OneCoin tokens to be assigned to "mine". The "mining OneCoin" videos I've found like this 'Submit Tokens to Start Mining OneCoin after a split and 'How do I mine OneCoin' indicate to me it isn't mining the same way Bitcoin does. Bitcoin mines through a Proof-of-work and the outputs you get from ming are different from regular outputs with open coirse coins. OneCoin looks to be doing Proof-of-stake mining, the more coins you have the more you make over time by staking (locking them into the network) to get a higher return later on. This distinction in protocol is never mentioned but marketed as a superior blockchain to Bitcoins.
Speaking of OneCoin's blockchain it doesn't make a lot of sense. Videos on OneCoin's blockchain with numbers in it, gives odd outputs compared to the first POS coin, Peercoin. Additionally the section that is stating "CURRENT BLOCK IS MINING FROM" is a cycle of repeating hexidecimal code in the background. It is technical jibberish meant to fake the actual technical process of real mining.
I wanted to go over the technical details of this scheme first because it aims to confuse people into believing that there is a value in this OneCoin blockchain, more specifically Dr. Ruja Ignova's coin. The reason why its rolling through the United States and your hearing about it more is because of the recent announcement of "retiring this blockchain" and starting a new blockchain in October of this year](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KTzE-sJ2Tk). Yes economic majors you heard that correctly. Dr. Ruja Ignatova is promising to double all OneCoin's on the October reboot of OneCoin, regardless of the account. Those package names and prices should also be alarming to most.
OneCoin & OneLife around the globe.
How OneCoin grew is with big, theatrical events, always hyping the OneCoin's blockchain and showing people a private exchange, xcoinx, that shows OneCoin as a tradable coin second to Bitcoin. The exchange isn't open, since 2015, to anyone. It is used to make an artificial claim that it is a global competitor coin. Here is an actual market cap site showing the real top 10 currently traded coins, coinmarketcap.com. OneCoin cannot be traded on any exchange. A basic rule most of the exchanges abide by is the coin has to be open-source to be traded. Each exchange has different standards but open-source is a constant between them all.
Your welcome to find the long OneCoin/Onelife event videos held in Dubai and China. They showcase how they utilize high productive tricks to facilitate real facts about the packages and blockchain that I've gone over.
Another way OneCoin's membership grew is repackaging the blockchain or private payment system. Hence the reason why I'm warning about the rebrand through the US. In Zhongshan, China a group attempted to bring members to their OneCoin hierachy through calling it "Vicat Credits". If you cannot translate the page from your browser or cannot read. The fifth picture in the article shows the OneCoin brand usage.

Message to Dr Ruja Ignatoca Onecoin from X Onecoin Top Leader & host Imi Shah. This video is about a OneCoin promoter being locked out of his account and froze id's with no reason given. It illustrates the point the OneCoin system can shutoff your account without recourse.
Deceptive youtube titles attempting to associate successful people to the OneCoin brand.
BillGates clickbate - 1 and Billgates clickbate - 2. Both videos use the same video footage from an actual interview with Bill Gates being excited with blockchain technology. Hello Mr.Gates - thisisbillgates or whomever monitors the account. I'm sure the video footage was not referring to OneCoin's privatized blockchain.
Richard Branson clickbate. Hello Mr. Branson - TheRichardBranson or whomever monitors the account. I'm pretty sure Mr Branson wasn't implying that OneCoin was going to replace Bitcoin.
Both Mr. Gates and Mr. Branson likeness can be found in a recent video as well. OneCoin Latest Presentation July 2016 Best Explanation Full Update during the 11min mark. The next slide where you see Dr. Ruja Ignatova on the cover of Forbes is already controversial, didn't happen, and your welcome to search for it.
These are examples of how OneCoin members and promoters attempt to decieve the public.
Congratulations making it this far. Now comes the good part on how we can help each other.
If you know of any free legal sources to consult with users like black_ish please post them! There are probably others that need the links as well. The details on what's been experienced and how money in being locked into this MLM sounds very wrong. The promoters usually open a LLC around the area they plan to promote in.
!!Free Blockchain education!!
Since OneCoin/Onelife/OneAcademy is pretending educate others at a very high cost. I think the best idea is to educate others and let them decide what coin or blockchain they want to particpate on.

Electrum>Helix>Electrum method of cleaning coins? WHAT DID I DO WRONG

I'm a 53 year old woman and I did RTFM before trying this so please don't be rude or call me names.
This is what I did: 1. Bought bitcoin at a coinme ATM and transferred to my blockchain wallet. (wallet 1) 2. Started my computer in Tails mode, launched Tor and transferred coins to my Electrum wallet (wallet 2.) 3. Created another Electrum wallet (wallet 3) and copied the address to receive bitcoin. 4. Pasted that wallet 3 address into Helix, and received a new address for wallet 3. 5. Sent coin from wallet 2 to new wallet 3 address. I was charged a "tumbling" fee for the service.
I can see the transaction was confirmed and the coin is now at the wallet 3 address from Helix; I can see this on blockchain.info. But it does not appear in my Electum wallet.
Where did I go wrong? Helix brags no coins have ever been lost. If this is true, then how long must I wait? They say most transactions are completed in 30 minutes. It's been 24 hours.
How do I get the coin back to wallet 2? Is there a way to retract it in Electrum? Alternatively, is there a way to use wallet 3 to retrieve the bitcoin from the Helix address?
Thanks in advance, Stella in Seattle

First Bitcoin Capital Corp. subsidiary (OTC: BITCF) Enters into MOU with Top Bitcoin ATM Manufacturer InterWallet, LLC

VANCOUVER, B.C. / ACCESSWIRE / March 17, 2014 / BITCoin ATM Franchise Corporation (“Company”) a wholly-owned subsidiary of First Bitcoin Capital Corp., is pleased to announce that it has entered into a memorandum of understanding with leading Bitcoin ATM manufacturer InterWallet, LLC.
The Company has secured rights with InterWallet to exclusively purchase, place and service Bitcoin ATMs, manufactured by InterWallet, in medical marijuana dispensaries, including other high traffic retail locations at Company’s discretion.
Extensive demographic research conducted by BITCoin ATM Franchise Corporation showed that a strategically placed Bitcoin ATM in medical marijuana locations can prove to be extremely profitable.
As a result of its analysis, the company believes these high-traffic locations are beneficial because they attract a wide range of demographic groups, including a generation that is tech savvy, understands crypto-currency, embraces new and emerging technologies and also conducts a lot of its business online or through their smartphones.
The company sees this move as an entrance into the medical marijuana retailing sector. Research shows that medical marijuana has various beneficial clinical applications and is a valuable aid in helping patients control pain.
With nearly 20 U.S. states and the District of Columbia approving and regulating the use of medical marijuana, BITCoin ATM Franchise Corporation says its InterWallet-manufactured Bitcoin ATMs will support the medical marijuana industry by helping patients connect with an array of resources allowing them to make Internet payments using cash or Bitcoin to pay their bills and purchase advanced products or services in the most convenient way possible.
Since the world’s first Bitcoin ATM debuted in Vancouver, British Columbia in 2013, the industry has flourished with Bitcoin ATMs now being installed in many other locations including Austin, Texas; Seattle, Washington; Hong Kong, Ireland and Singapore.
BITCoin ATM Franchise Corporation is the first Bitcoin Company in the world to offer a unique turn-key franchise investment opportunity, offering all legal, regulatory and location services for business owners to earn additional income by getting involved in the lucrative Bitcoin industry with minimal effort.
“We believe Bitcoin ATMs that are located in areas with high foot traffic, such as medical marijuana dispensaries, will only benefit the company’s bottom line and help secure the company’s plans for future growth and expansion,” the company said.
About BITCoin ATM Franchise Corporation:
BITCoin ATM Franchise Corp. is the first Bitcoin Company in the world to offer a unique franchise opportunity for business owners to earn additional income by getting involved in the lucrative Bitcoin industry. The company intends to build a network of Bitcoin ATMs that will be similar to any other ATM franchise company. Investing in a Bitcoin ATM franchise will allow business owners to earn good residual income without spending too much time and effort. A Bitcoin ATM franchise is ideal for those who want to start a small business but don’t have the required capital to do so. As the Bitcoin industry grows, more and more people will begin using the crypto-currency and the ATM, especially if it’s located in an area that has high foot traffic, will be the go-to choice for anyone looking to exchange, buy, or sell Bitcoins easily and quickly in one convenient location.
First Bitcoin Capital Corp. is a developing Canadian-based mining company currently holding concessions of Gold in Venezuela and is preparing to enter the crypto-currency industry. It is the first vertically-integrated consolidation company of the Bitcoin and crypto-currency marketplace.

Robocoin / Coinme Exchange Rate Problems :(

I just used the new Robocoin (operated by Coinme) Bitcoin ATM in Seattle. 1 BTC = 474.72 USD according to my receipt. I spent $400 which got me 0.8426 BTC. When I check online, several exchanges show it's worth about $375 :(

Guest on the Bob Rivers Show in Seattle on Monday. Requesting help to represent Bitcoin well. (x-post to /r/Bitcoin)

Hi /Bitcoin and /BitcoinSeattle! I have been invited to the Bob Rivers show on KJR FM 95.7 in Seattle this coming Monday (the 27th) around 8:40 AM. In the spirit of community and open source I’d like to ask you folks how I can best represent Bitcoin on the show.
I called in during a very short 5 minute segment they did yesterday. You can listen to that here if you want. It starts at about 41 minutes and goes to 46 minutes or so (have to let it load first). I emailed them after that show and they invited me. As mentioned in that segment the main host Bob Rivers read Marc Andreessen’s New York Times piece.
I didn’t get clarification but imagine this’ll be a relatively short 10-20 minute segment and I won’t be doing most of the talking: likely just doing Q&A from the show’s hosts. Nonetheless I’d like to be prepared if I get a moment to expound on anything.
I’m working on a short 1 page topic brief that might be reviewed by the staff there due on Sunday. I’ll share that here, too. So: what should we talk about?
A few things I had in mind:
Other things, too! I have a big list of topics but I want to get the most “conversation-worthy”, gaming-changy, paragidm-shifty stuff out, kinda like what Marc Andreessen did in his article.
By request I’ll be “bringing” some Bitcoin to the show, too. I hope to demonstrate a transaction as well. Perhaps sending money to Sean’s Outpost (easy to demonstrate with a big ol’ QR code on the front page).
Thanks everyone! - Jesse
