  • Rapid Fire
  • This Stupid Ass Movie - Shoutout @anthony in the CB Discord.

  • The NEO Blockchain was DOWN for over an hour. (BULLISH OR BULLSHIT) - Brent

    • This was because of ONE node.
    • Obviously the response was "centralized POS"
    • But, this is what we're supposed to get.
    • The way their consensus works is that if they do have a downed node, they keep trying until they get consensus. If they don't get it, they try 15 seconds later, then 30, then 60, then 120, then 240 etc.
    • They is actually based on probability - once a node goes down this starts firing and most of the time it happens on the first try, but it COULD go as high as 10 retrys in a very unlucky scenario which would be over 4 hours.
    • NEO is still centralized, and that's part of your tradeoff.
  • Binance adding Ripple to their Trust Wallet. Also, credit card support available. Brent
    • Their trust wallet is similar to other offerings by coinbase, ENJ, etc. It's in the app store.
    • They have plans for web, desktop, and hardware wallets.
    • There's a bunch of coins in this one - ETH, ETH Classic, Gochain, POA Network, Vechain, Tron, Wanchain, Callisto, ICON, Bitcoin, Litecoin, BitcoinCash, TomoChain, Dash, Zcash, Zcoin, XRP - Legit don't even know what half of those are.
    • The person that nails this first could be the paypal.
    • Metamask is continually improving their experience though.
    • Coinbase has something similar.
  • ETH Is not a security @Karim Baruque this looks like it's all you

    • Story starts with a comment back in June of 2018 from the SECs Director of Corporate Finance (William Hinman)
    • "Based on my understanding of the present state of Ether, the Ethereum network and its decentralized structure, current offers and sales of Ether are not securities transactions."
    • Remember the Howey test?

      • Citrus farmers in FL 1946, went to the supreme court after SEC sued
      • SC developed landmark test. :A transaction is an investment contract if...
        1. It is an investment of money
        1. There is an expectation of profits from investment
        1. the investment of money is in a common enterprise
        1. Any profit comes from the efforts of a promoter or 3rd party
    • "When the efforts of the third party are no longer a key factor for determining the enterprise’s success, material information asymmetries recede. ... the ability to identify an issuer or promoter to make the requisite disclosures becomes difficult, and less meaningful."

    • A group wrote a letter to the SEC Chairman to see if this was just an opinion or represents position of the SEC
    • "I agree with Director Hinman's explanation of how a digital asset transaction may no longer represent an investment contract if, for example, purchasers would no longer reasonably expect a person or group to carry out the essential managerial or entrepreneurial efforts. Under those circumstances, the digital asset may not represent an investment contract under the Howey framework."
  • Adoption Segment. @Adam Levy
    • Implementation of crypto in the real world.
    • $0.40 off per gallon if you use btc. What other use cases are there?
    • Austria has advertisements in subways for Bitcoin (bitpanda)
    • there is a website called shitexpress.com where you can buy a pile of dung and send it to someone you don't like using bit coin.
    • yoga studios, restaurants, coffee shops, escape rooms—basically savvy business owners are starting to pop up with more options of payment—some crypto over credit cards
    • first time seeing payment in an SF coffee shop in 2014
    • can any business use Cash app for bitcoin?
  • Cool chart of crypto ownership in America @Adam Levy
    • 8% of Americans own crypto—think it was closer to 1-2% in early 2017
    • too difficult to understand and too complicated to understand is a solid portion of . I can sympathize as it is not intuitve at all but once you learn it, it becomes second nature. Think going from windows to ios
    • most are just "not interested"
    • some say it's too high risk which, fair enough
    • During the 2017 boom, there were roughly 40k new CB users a week signing up. I'd say 8% seems about right.
  • https://cointelegraph.com/news/us-state-of-colorado-passes-crypto-exemptions-bill-into-law
    • Colorado Digital Token Act. Colorado is "trying to provide clarity for the sector. That doesn't mean charlatans can violate security laws"
    • "digital token" as “a digital unit with specified characteristics, secured through a decentralized ledger or database, exchangeable for goods or services, and capable of being traded or transferred between persons without an intermediary or custodian of value

Episode 165 - Coinbase is Scum? QuadrigaCX definitely is, and a special guest.

165 Flagship.png

There's a special guest on the show - Adam "Roothlus" Levy. He's going to help us navigate these murky waters of scams, bullshit stories, and more. Why is Coinbase losing good will? Why is Kraken gaining it? Why wasn't Brent hired at Kraken? Also - Brent got hacked on this edition.

Episode 165 - Flagship Friday

QuadrigaCX Granted 45 More days to repay funds

Bitgrail CEO must repay 170mil

XRP and XLM were approved by Thailand SEC

IOTA Released a Testnet without the COO - AND they went fully discord transparent.

ENJ Released their SDK for Unity - They're not on Samsung though.

  • You know we gotta do our weekly QuadrigaCX Update.
    • First of all last week Kraken offered a $100k reward for any information regarding the QCX situation that leads to the discovery of funds.
    • They also put out two full podcast episodes about it. (Their 3rd and 4th episode). They're combined almost 3 hours worth of information. I didn't listen.
    • It fuckin worked somehow. They found over 600k in ETH the next day. Roughly 90-100M depending on the ETH price at the time.
    • Some of it was on Kraken lol. Most of it was on Bitfinex.
    • Even though some was found, this doesn't necessarily mean that it was QCX or that it can be recovered.
    • There's somehow more.
    • Their cold wallets were found empty.
    • Guess who was never audited before now?
    • Guess who else still hasn't been audited?
    • Guess where most of that found ETH was?
  • New Bitcoin Betting Game Adds Thousands of Waitlisted Users
    • You can bet on MOON (up) or REKT (down) with a new card where you can place bets starting every five minutes.
    • The company is called HXRO (Hero) and they plan on releasing new betting games down the road.
    • Beta started Jan 1st and over 115k people on the waiting list
    • Guess this is a simplified version of Augur?
    • Seems popular thus far.
  • COINBASE IS SCUM!!!
    • So Coinbase acquired a team called Neutrino.
      • They had a team that all worked on a project called Hacking Team, which was a startup that specifically aided some shady governments in some authoritarian practices.
      • They helped surveillance of citizens by selling its project to - Sudan, Bahrain, Venezuela, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and Kazakhstan
      • The UN actually got involved and told them they were selling weapons to Sudan, and they were worried about them being used to target Darfur belligerents. Hacking Team said they never had dealings with Sudan.
      • After the UN Got involved the Italian government froze any exports that the team could make.
      • Someone hacked them and their Twitter and release a 400GB data dump, which Wikileaks even retweeted. Dealings with Sudan confirmed, and there was even an invoice to Lebanon. How did "Hacking Team" get hacked? Well their password was P4ssword, and they also used wolverine and universo.
      • Standard response - don't download that leak it has a virus and it's also all not true (paraphrasing Christian Pozzi, team member). His Twitter was immediately hacked.
      • As of 2016 they were still allowed to sell spyware...just not outside of the EU. They had 70 clients as of 2015.
      • They won an award in 2013 - One of 5 Corporate Enemies of the Internet!
      • Coinbase original statement -It was “aware that Neutrino’s co-founders previously worked at Hacking Team, which we reviewed as part of our security, technical and hiring diligence,” adding that “Coinbase does not condone nor will it defend the actions of Hacking Team,” but “it was important for Coinbase to bring this function in-house to fully control and protect our customers’ data and Neutrino’s technology was the best we encountered in the space to achieve this goal.”
      • But they got their act together and fired them all, except the board.
    • They were also aware that whoever Neutrino was supposed to replace was selling user data.
      • The quote was plain as day ""We are aware of the backgrounds of some of the folks that were involved in Neutrino and we are looking into that,” said Christine Sandler, Coinbase’s head of sales."
      • Coinbase clarified that she totally misspoke.
      • They say they're totally not sharing personally identifiable data with 3rd party vendors. I wonder if there's a thin legal definition for that?
  • Thread on Worst Investment You Made
  • Bullish or Bullshit?

    • Thailand's SEC Approves Bitcoin, Bans Bitcoin Cash

      First of all the link was literally to a BCH/USD Technical Analysis blog post

      One little bullet point that says 'News flow - Thailand SEC removed BCH, LTC, & ETC from ICO Fundraising....that's it lol

      Found the actual statement from Thai SEC here

      They just update the list regularly, last paragraph really hypes it down

      TLDR didnt affect anything and the rest are definitely not legal tender lol. BS

  • Argentina Blockchain Adoption](https://www.binance.com/en/blog/309988869718880256/Binance-Labs-BUIDLing-Argentinas-Crypto-Future)

    • OCCRP Executive Director Paul Radu elaborated

      Among the counterparties on these transactions were major Western banks such as Citigroup Inc., Raiffeisen, and Deutsche Bank. The dozens of companies in the system also generated $8.8 billion of internal transactions to obscure the origin of the cash.

    • Citigroup did not respond to a request for comment, Raiffeisen declined to comment, and Deutsche Bank refused to comment for legal reasons, claiming to have limited access to information on the transactions in question.

Date of Release: 3/1/19

  • What have we released?

    Substratum Delisting Round Table

    Interview #2 with Luke Mulks from Brave

  • Rapid Fire

    NASDAQ BTC and ETH indices went Live.

    Elon Musk says whoever owns the early BTC deserves a Nobel prize in delayed gratification. But he still only owns .25 BTC so don't get too excited.

    Cryptopia releases its final hack estimates at 9.4% of its total assets. Maybe there's hope?

    There was a sweet bull market as BTC rose above 4k. ANNNNND It's gone.

    BAT Announces partnership with TAP Network

  • Coinomi Wallet situation

    Coinomi Response

    • A reddit named Warith Al Maawali came forward with claims that his entire life savings was lost on Coinomi. He isn't the only reddit user, there's 3 others that all had the same thing happen.
    • Coinomi is a wallet for anyone not familiar. Their tagline is "Your Trusted Blockchain Interface"
    • He actually made a website that has all of his proof, screenshots, research, and findings.
    • The end result is that they were sharing your passphrase with a third party on Google's servers, for spell checking purposes. In plain text. Coinomi claims that it wasn't plain text, and that it was encapsulated inside a HTTPS request.
    • The user claims that this can only be exploited by whoever created the exploit or anyone else that uses the backend at Google. Coinomi only says Google.
    • They also say that it was only if you restored a desktop wallet. Also it totally wasn't a bug in their code (what?!) it was a plugin issue.
    • Based on the screenshot of their e-mail, they did in fact admit that this was a problem. They even told the user he was eligible for a bounty, but they haven't taken any responsibility (at this time) to give him his crypto yet.
    • This guy says he did everything right - he had it only running on a virtual machine behind a firewall with Anti-Malware and Anti-Virus protection. It was still compromised by a bug.
    • They even went as far as to say "Don't worry we've blacklisted the funds they'll never get to exchanges".
    • Guess what? The code wasn't open source.
    • Coinomi also suggests he saw the problem and stole his own funds, and say that he was holding them ransom by threatening to go public. They also mention Luke Childs, Jonathan Sterling going public with their findings as irresponsible. (again what?!) They call him a blackmailer. They also admit there's an issue.
    • Coinomi released the entire chat log of their support ticket. Warith was a dick, but they were asking him for a bunch of dumb shit and stalling too.
  • Over-Under? Money Laundering Cases in Japan Involving Crypto

    • December last year Report suggested Japan had over 6,000 money laundering cases involving cryptocurrency in first 9 months of the year (+1000 from regualtors). 7096
    • Between Apr-Dec 2017 only 669 cases so 10 fold increase
    • What % of Japans money laundering cases in 2018 do you think that 7096 represents?
    • SPOILER

      • DONT PEEK =)

        1.6%, 417,465 Cases

  • Bullish or Bullshit - Epic Games (Fortnite) CEO Shows Support for EOS on Twitter.

  • Well, since we're on the topic of EOS - Two Stories

    • Their Github commits have gone wayyyy down.
      • Longhash reports that less than 3% of their total commits have happened in the last 3 months.
      • 4000 commits in a year - but 114 in the last 3 months.
      • This isn't unique to EOS, it's just way worse there.
      • ETH is at a 20%ish ratio, and Tron is at around 15%.
      • One argument - they don't need to update as frequently because the blockchain has matured.
    • EOS has failed to build a Byzantine fault tolerant blacklist, so someone stole $7M
      • So basically, in order to blacklist bad actors there's a centralized authority called the ECAF. The ECAF wasn't democratically elected, they were just assigned at inception.
      • I assume that's the "power vested in me" people.
      • Basically the 21 block producers were getting annoyed at all the blacklisted addresses that were being submitted and decided it wasn't salable, so they were looking for an alternate solution.
      • Apparently, this was a vulnerable solution if even ONE of the 21BPs incorrectly setup their blacklist. Games.eos did set it up wrong. So one of the blacklisted accounts with around $7M US was able to spread that money around indiscriminately.
      • ONE
      • So much for that.
      • So what's their solution? They don't have one yet, but they're considering nulling out the keys on blacklisted accounts.
      • Apparently they've discarded the ECAF - and are getting a new one.
  • Well, since we're on the topic of EOS - "Another Story Ft. TRON & Sun"

    • Chinese Government body ranks TRON 2nd Best Cryptocurrency...behind EOS.

      • Story starts with a tweet from Sun braging about the rating from The Center for information and Industry Development (CCID)
      • Apparently some of this rating is because of TRONs large transactions per day & tps
      • Appropriate Vitalik Quote

        "When a blockchain project claims ‘We can do 3,500 TPS because we have a different algorithm,’ what we really mean is ‘We are a centralized pile of trash because we only have 7 nodes running the entire thing.’”

      • Upside should be getting lots of Dapps and apparently TRON going aggro on it spending $100 million on TronArcade and launched a "$2 billion initiative called Project Genesis" to grow its Dapp market.

  • One more before Mailbag.

  • Mailbag

    What are your top useful use cases and top useful projects as of February 2019? in the sense that they're providing value to the crypto space just by developing and/or don't look like they'll collapse in a strong breeze. thebiggerboat

Episode 162: Featuring Luke Mulks

Episode 162 BB WL.png

Today we have a discussion about the broken ad ecosystem with returning guest Luke Mulks, Director of Business Development at Brave. This time our audio is MUCH better and we discuss everything from the changing Ecosystem of Brave, to Uphold concerns. There’s definitely some hard core Brave shilling here, but overall we do get some great discussions about the advertising industry, and what Brave can do to break it. Luke definitely did not mention the TAP Network Announcement, but I’ve included it in the show notes.

Brian Li of Decrypto.Net and William McKenzie of getting attacked by Substratum fame are back on the show again since Substratum was recently delisted from Binance. We unpack their delisting, their assertions to each of the delisting points, and what it means to the crypto space. Brian and William are basically the boogeymen for the entire SUB community. They’ve been called everything from Chinese government shills to Russian spies. In the end, there is a massive intersection of the SUB community that blames these two individuals for their own shortcomings as a project. We discuss that as well in this episode.

Hacked.png

Today’s episode we talk a lot about the SEC, bash on Tron a little bit, and then talk about the Cryptopia Hack. Have we ever mentioned how much Cryptopia sucks? Well it does, and the hack is not surprising. Ethereum had Constantinople delayed, and we go over a quick mailbag question.

Flagship Friday 53: - Time Magazine, Horizen, Venezuela, and more. Episode 147

Generic-Wallpaper.png

It’s the first Flagship of the year, and the team is ready and raring to go. First they teas the Crypties, an award show coming out in a couple of days. They talk about the Horizen DAO paper, realize that they know nothing and decide maybe they need to call up Rob Viglione to talk about it. Karim goes over the Time Magazine Bitcoin article about how important it is for freedom, why it won’t matter in places like the US for longer than we thought. And what it has to do with Venezuela. Brent, then, goes over this stupid scammer named Bitcoin-Fund-Manager and what a rabbit hole that is. From being a monk to a wedding planner, this guy knows scams.

Finally the team goes around the world talking about the Thai government and blockchain, how it could be affecting voting. They go over Overstock.com’s crypto investments – why they believe in Bitcoin, Ravencoin, and others. We play some Bullish or Bullshit with Bitcoin in space, and then roast a portfolio from one of our newest Patreon members.
