For Beginners / Scammers posing as security scanners
« on: October 05, 2019, 06:27:28 AM »
This is just another reminder to everyone never to download anything from the emails you receive. Some scammers are so smart and they make their emails really look professional. Remember that no reputable company would just send random emails.

Don't forget to check out the article as they explain the full details on how it's being perpetrated by fraudsters
'Lost Files' Data Wiper Poses as a Windows Security Scanner

A Windows Security Scanner that states it encrypted your files is being distributed by spam, but whether by bug or design, it instead corrupts binary data in a victim's files.

ISC Handler Xavier Mertens received a spam email that pretends to be from Microsoft and has a subject of "Virus Detection On Your Computer!". The email then proceeds to state that a Trojan horse was detected on the computer and that the recipient should download the linked to "security scanner"

For Beginners / Android user? Check if your phone is being exploited
« on: October 04, 2019, 05:35:08 PM »
This is from the article "New 0-Day Flaw Affecting Most Android Phones Being Exploited in the Wild"

Apparently, many android phones are affected by what they call as 'zero-day vulnerability" and it's been exploited by some surveillance group.

Quote
The zero-day is a use-after-free vulnerability in the Android kernel's binder driver that can allow a local privileged attacker or an app to escalate their privileges to gain root access to a vulnerable device and potentially silently take full remote control of the device.

Which phones are vulnerable?

Quote
most Android devices manufactured and sold by a majority of vendors with the unpatched kernel are still vulnerable to this vulnerability even after having the latest Android updates, including below-listed popular smartphone models :

Code: [Select]
Pixel 1
Pixel 1 XL
Pixel 2
Pixel 2 XL
Huawei P20
Xiaomi Redmi 5A
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5
Xiaomi A1
Oppo A3
Moto Z3
Oreo LG phones
Samsung S7
Samsung S8
Samsung S9

It helps to pay attention to these kind of news especially if you have a lot of personal information in your phone. Never trust your phone too much.

What are your thought on North Korea integrating blockchain technology and creating their own cryptocurrency?

It appears that they have been opening their country to the technology by organizing conferences and inviting people from the international crypto community to attend. The second conference will be held on February next year according to this website https://nkcryptocon.com

Basic Attention Token (BAT) / KYC for BAT Withdrawal and Deposit on Brave
« on: September 13, 2019, 03:09:47 PM »
In case you are not aware yet, Brave has required users earning BAT thru the browser and withdraws them to an external wallet. Likewise, those who will deposit  BAT to their wallet on Brave exceeding $600 will have to go through verification. 

KYC will be processed by Uphold Exchange. You can find more details at https://support.brave.com/hc/en-us/articles/360032158891-What-is-KYC-

If you are one of the many users who doesn't like KYC and still watches ads to earn BAT, you may want to stop that.

As the title says, government authorities can easily get your personal information from these centralized exchanges (CEX). If you have been using a lot of these CEX and have submitted info for KYC verification, expect the government to know more about your income from crypto.


Here is an example of what I'm talking about https://cointelegraph.com/news/internal-revenue-service-sends-new-round-of-letters-to-crypto-holders

Waves Forum / What do you think of Waves listing Ethereum Tokens?
« on: August 25, 2019, 08:08:27 PM »
Visit https://cointelegraph.com/news/waves-dex-now-supports-ethereum-based-erc-20-tokens if you are learning this for the first time.

IMO, this is a good technical development on the part of Waves but I think it's unnecessary. It may be an acknowledgement on their part that they are losing the battle for DEX that's why they decided to bring the competition into their platform.

Forum related / NEWS SECTION
« on: August 10, 2019, 10:16:07 AM »
I got used to reading cryptocurrency news in this forum's news section without having to open any link. It looks like some posters have gotten a bit lazy and just post few words and then a link. I'm not also sure if that was really intended to drive traffic to their site (and be monetized).

There is no specific rule to post the entire content but at least give readers more idea or a summary what it's all about
Quote
1- Post about stuff in the news
2- Put a link to original article if possible

Some Example:

A tax bill aimed at refining the Internal Revenue Service’s treatment of cryptocurrencies has moved to the U.S. House of Representatives Ways & Means Committee
https://www.cryptoinformers.info/news/10294-crypto-bill-amendment-introduced-in-the-us-house-of-representatives

I with all these threats against Facebook and all the allegations, do you think Facebook Libra will be success?

See what British MP said here: https://www.cryptoinformers.info/news/201-british-mp-expresses-worry-want-to-probe-facebooks-libra

Decentralized Exchanges (DEX) / IDEX KYC Details
« on: July 19, 2019, 12:16:26 PM »
IDEX already announced before that they will be requiring KYC verification of their user. Yesterday, they already laid out the details in a blog https://medium.com/idex/idex-kyc-transition-period-and-updated-asset-availability-for-us-markets-set-to-begin-d45e945f842d

Quote
Tier 1 Verification — After creating an account with a valid email address, you will be asked to provide your name, date of birth and country. Once the information is submitted, verification is instant, and you will be approved for unlimited trades and withdrawals of up to $5,000 USD per day.

Tier 2 Verification — For users who want to withdraw more than $5,000 USD per day, you will be asked to provide your address, a passport (or other approved ID), and a selfie. Once the information is submitted, verification can take as little as 30 seconds, and then you will be approved for unlimited trades and unlimited withdrawals.

I think it is safe to say many people will no longer be using IDEX with these changes.

Suggestion Box / Locking Old Threads
« on: July 11, 2019, 05:40:05 PM »
There are so many old threads that are no longer relevant to today's discussion but still being bumped by some bounty hunters and I don't think the OPs plan to lock them up anytime soon. Can admin or mods do it?

Examples:
Ethereum will regain the number two positions. Locked
When Will Ethereum Get Back To #2 Locked
Welcome back ETH! Locked
Ethereum today. Locked
ETH holders will profit at the end of the year. Is it true? (posted 2018)Locked

Suggestion Box / Merge bitcoin forks under 1 board
« on: June 28, 2019, 05:58:49 PM »
For a start, lumped all forks of Bitcoin into one. Name it  "Bitcoin Forks". That board can have childboards for bch, bsv, btg, bcd.
Have other more popular coins like BNB take their spot.

For Beginners / Be Careful Of Scams This Upcoming Bull Run
« on: June 22, 2019, 07:36:51 PM »
Just like in 2017, many fraudsters will come out and launch many scam projects now that the cryptocurrency market is growing again. Do not be swayed by all their sweet talks and promises. Learn from the past, be more discerning, stay safe!
