Everything you need to know about Bitcoin mining

Fastest and easiest way without a minimum purchase or high fees for customers to obtain NANO? (USA)

Hello Nano community,
Some of you may know me from /nanotrade or elsewhere, I generally am bullish on NANO and try to do my part to help spread adoption and awareness. I also run several e-commerce websites utilizing the open source Zen-Cart as my back end. Lately, and not so lately but in general, I have encountered issues with various payment processors (which actually led me to Nano in the first place, as well as a general interest in Cryptocurrency).
While there are solutions to dealing with the more stringent regulations enforced by payment processing companies, many of these require my customers to download third party apps or sign up for third party services. Not too dissimilar to how Paypal requests a user to be logged in before sending a payment in fact. Anyways, so while setting up my websites again today after losing another payment processor over the weekend, I have come to the decision, why not try and introduce my customer base to Nano and present it less so as a cryptocurrency, but more so as a digital decentralized payment solution? I have tried accepting cryptocurrencies before, however many of my customers, at least for my main e-commerce website are older and not so tech oriented. Just seeing that I accepted "Cryptocurrency" and "Bitcoin" as an option was enough to scare some of these people away. Ironically, I noticed more sales when I completely removed this payment option and all mentions of it from my website. Funny how that works.
Anyways, since I am in the middle of setting up additional payment methods, I figured now would be a good time to attempt the above with Nano, and offer a link on the "Pay with Nano" page during the check-out process for my customers to decide if they would like to try it out. My only concern, many of these people being older and technophobic, is that the process for obtaining the Nano they want to spend may be too much work and not something they would be interested in. Especially if it involves things like scanning IDs or providing more information than a simple credit or debit card number and a name. Ideally, this would be the only information they need to provide, with the ability to purchase any amount (most orders placed are between $25-$100), without paying an outrageous fee (which I will offer an incentive to cover for anyways I think). An instant transfer would also be a prerequisite. Something as fast as it takes to sign up for Cash App for example.
So, am I asking too much? Do such services exist yet in the US?
Quick rundown:
-Low fees
-No minimum or low minimum
-Non-invasive signup process
-No wait
Another thing worth mentioning, and hopefully this can provide the right people with an idea which I think could really help improve Nano adoption if implemented, was that I noticed some competitors of mine are accepting something called "PMC Coin", which is claimed to be a gold backed cryptocurrency. The gold bit is not important I do not think. What is impressive however, is that these vendors are able to provide this crypto as an option during the checkout process, and upon hitting submit, the customer is brought to the PMC Coin website, where they are presented with a form for purchasing this crypto. I have not tried going further than this, but the form contains all the required fields for a credit and debit purchase, as well as the price for the purchase being exactly what the price was for the requested items during the check-out on the forwarding website. It appears that upon purchase, the credit/debit card payment is sent to the PMC Coin sellers, and the PMC Coin in an equivalent amount is sent to the vendor. I assume the fees are offloaded onto the vendor at this point. While I have no interest in this asset in the slightest, I have to commend them on this solution, and I really hope we can see something like this emerge from the Nano community. It could be the killer app we have all been waiting for to spur adoption perhaps.
I will essentially be manually doing something like this for my customers, albeit with links and instructions, however as mentioned, the more streamlined the process is, the better. I am sure they will have an easy enough time with Natrium, and I am excited to introduce some new people into the space. But most of all I just want a simple ability to be able to keep my shop online without having to bow down to the banks and their petty requests as to what products should or should not be sold. None of us should have to deal with the Soup Nazi, be us merchants or consumers.
Thank you for your time and interest, and remember, stay bullish!
::edit::
Spreads I have found so-far:
CoinGate: 100 Nano = $114.76 vs. $97.44 USDT (Binance) [$17.32 fee] [$50 minimum] (Simplex)
Atomic Wallet: 100 Nano = $115 vs. $98.40 USDT (Binance) [$16.60 fee] [$50 minimum] (Simplex)
Crypto.com: Claims 3.5% fee, requires government photo ID, 2-3 day confirmation
Coinswitch.io: 100 Nano = $117 vs. $99.28 USDT (Binance) [$17.72 fee] [$63 minimum] (Simplex)
Coinify.com: 100 Nano = $119 vs. $114 USDT (Binance) [$5 fee] [$63 minimum] KYC is intensive but not too crazy. 2 Minute verification too. Definitely the best option so far. Only problem is the minimum purchase.
Going to try Binance.us next and the Brave browser, which I think uses Binance as a backend anyways.

Our first generation hardware wallets were made of military-grade aerospace aluminum. We’ve stripped all that down to just focus on air-gapping your private keys.

Our first generation hardware wallets were made of military-grade aerospace aluminum. We’ve stripped all that down to just focus on air-gapping your private keys.

https://preview.redd.it/0rogeunfujv41.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=8a2cf5eff6f30a36fd7e86e16331eb40b4072627
Hey bitcoin! I'm Lixin, longtime bitcoiner and creator of Cobo Vault.
I come from a background in the electronic hardware industry, and experienced one of my products being featured in Apple Stores around the world. Back in 2018 Cobo CEO Discus Fish, who also co-founded F2Pool, invited me to help build Cobo’s hardware product line. As we had strong ties to miners in China, we naturally designed the 1st gen with them in mind. In China, mining farms are nearly always built in very isolated places where there is very cheap wind or water electricity. When we built our 1st generation Cobo Vault hardware wallet, we needed to maximize the durability of the device in addition to its security. We used aerospace aluminum rather than plastic and made it completely IP68 waterproof, IK9 drop resistant, and military standard MIL-STD-810G durable for the mining industry.
Things changed last year when I went to Bitcoin 2019 and talked to lots of hodlers in the States. I found that 95% of them don’t care about durability. I asked them if they were afraid of their home being flooded or burned down in a fire. The answer is - yes, they are afraid of these things, but see them as very low possibilities. Even if something were to happen, they said they would just buy another HW wallet for 100 dollars. From these conversations, it became more and more clear we should design a product around a normal hodler’s needs.
Our 2nd gen product compromises on durability but doesn’t compromise on security.
Most hodlers share some needs with miners:
  1. Hodlers want a more air-gapped solution so we kept QR code data transmission between your hardware wallet and the companion app which is also auditable.
  2. A Secure Element is the strongest wall of protection from physical attacks. We are the first hardware wallet - also maybe the first electronic product with SE - to have open source SE firmware.
  3. A battery can be a significant weak point. The 2nd gen continues the legacy of detachable batteries to prevent corrosion damage and will also support AAA batteries in case your battery dies someday.
  4. The 2nd gen also keeps the 4-inch touchscreen so you don’t need to suffer from tiny buttons and little screens anymore. Human error is one of the biggest reasons people lose their assets.
  5. We kept other features like the self-destruct mechanism and Web Authentication, which prevent side-channel and supply chain attacks.
If you'd like to read more about these features, check out our blog posts.
Aside from the legacy of the 1st gen, our 2nd gen product will have:
  1. Open source hardware wallet application layer and Secure Element firmware code. With the open source firmware code, you can see: random number generation, master private key generation, key derivation, and the signing process all happen within the SE and your private keys never leave.
  2. At the Bitcoin 2019 conference half the hodlers I met told me they own multiple hardware wallets which they use on the go. We added a fingerprint sensor you can use to authorize transactions without typing in your password. No need to worry about surveillance cameras when using your hardware wallet in airports.
  3. We will also support PSBT (BIP174) to be compatible with third-party wallets like Electrum or Wasabi Wallet in case people have need of using Cobo Vault with their own node or coinjoin. Multisig between Cobo Vault and other wallets will be realized to prevent single point failure with any brand of hardware wallet.
  4. By sacrificing the durability, we successfully controlled the price under 100 USD for the basic version.
  5. BTC-only firmware version for people who want to minimize the codebase for less of an attack surface.
We truly appreciate the support from the community and are giving away free metal storage Cobo Tablets with every purchase of our 2nd gen for a week! Add a tablet to your cart and place your order before May 5th, 8 AM PST to claim your free metal storage. Find us on Twitter CryptoLixin and CoboVault - any suggestions or questions are welcome!

Smartmining.cc Review: 2%-4% daily for 60-180 days with principal included

Smartmining.cc is a high yield investment project whose theme is for cloud mining. It provides long term deposit plans, and started on 03rd Jun 2020. You can earn 2%-4% daily for 60–180 days with principal included. Admin bought listing on my website yesterday, and my first withdrawal request was already received two hours ago. Now let me introduce it in details.
Started: 2020–06–03
My deposit: $200
The amount of 200 USD has been withdrawn from your account. Accounts: U3869878->U24795174. Memo: Shopping Cart Payment. . Date: 06:31 06.07.20. Batch: 322597842
Investment Plans
Minimal amount for deposit is: Bitcoin 0.001, Litecoin 0.1, Dogecoin 1000, Dash 0.05, Ethereum 0.01, Ethereum Classic 0.5, Bitcoin Cash 0.01, Zcash 0.05, Ripple 10, USD Cash 1, Tether 1 and Dollar 1. Your daily profit will be 2%-4% according to your deposit amount. The more GH/s you purchase, the higher level your account will reach. With each increase in the LEVEL account, your daily profit increase. What’s more, your daily profit increases by + 0.02% for each day without withdrawal, but I suggest you to withdraw profit every day until you get back 100% initial deposits. You can see details below:
(1) 0–999 GH/s, 2% daily profit
(2) 1000–2999 GH/s, 2.1% daily profit
(3) 3000–5999 GH/s, 2.2% daily profit
(4) 6000–9999 GH/s, 2.3% daily profit
(5) 10000–19999 GH/s, 2.4% daily profit
(6) 20000–29999 GH/s, 2.5% daily profit
(7) 30000–99999 GH/s, 2.6% daily profit
(8) 100000–199999 GH/s, 2.8% daily profit
(9) 200000–999999 GH/s, 3% daily profit
(10) 100000–2999999 GH/s, 3.5% daily profit
(11) 3000000 GH/s, 4% daily profit
Deposit works according to the selected contract, and the contract is from 60 to 180 days. You should deposit money into your balance first, and then buy Hash with the money on your balance. Your initial deposit is already in your daily profit, so principal will not be returned in the end.
For example, I buy GH/s with $200, and choose the 60 day contract. My daily profit will be 2.5% for 60 days. At the end of investment term, I will get back $300 totally($100 profit with $200 initial deposits).
But there is one things you should know that you must choose which ecurrency you want to mining, or we can say like this, which ecurrency you want your daily profit to be paid to. For example, if you want your daily profit to be paid through BTC, then you should turn off all other ecurrency mining process and only leave BTC mining. You can see the mining choice on the “Mining” page of their website.
Promotional Rewards(7%-2%)
For promoters, Smartmining.cc has developed a profitable partner program, which has two levels. First level is 7%, and second level is 2%. Unlike most HYIP projects, promoters can configure refback for your referrals on the page “Partners”. I already set 100% RCB for my direct active investors. Welcome to join under my team.
Payment Options
PerfectMoney, Payeer, Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, BitcoinCash, Ripple, Dash, Zcash, Tether, Dogecoin and USD Cash.
Withdrawal Type
The request for withdrawal is processed within an hour but no more than 48 hours. Minimal amount for withdrawal is: Bitcoin 0.001, Litecoin 0.1, Dogecoin 1000, Dash 0.05, Ethereum 0.01, Ethereum Classic 0.5, Bitcoin Cash 0.01, Zcash 0.05, Ripple 10, USD Cash 1, Tether 1, Dollar 1
Whois Details

Smartmining.cc designs an original template for its website, and it now supports 10 languages. So you can choose your native language at their top menu. Recent deposits and withdrawals are shown at the bottom part of their website, you can refer to the data according to your own experience. In my view, the profit Smartmining.cc provides is in normal range, and the referral system also designs in a reasonale mechanism.

List of moderately difficult skribbl words for your new friend group (1200+ words)

That is to say that this list contains words that this list contains words that:
  1. Usually aren't instantly guess-able (like star, apple, or Nike).
  2. Can be played with a group of acquaintances (I play with a group of interns at work to blow off time)
Created this list by modifying an existing difficult word list we found online and adding a bunch of new words. If you see a stupid difficult word, it was probably a word from the existing difficult word list that I forgot to remove. (amicable and reimbursement were the type of bs I removed lol).

400 Watt Solar System for Shed

400 Watt Solar System for Shed
Literally my first Reddit post so please bear with me :)

I wanted to build an of grid solar system for me shed. I've built other systems before but this is the first time building one this big on my own. I'm not a professional electrician so please use this information at your own risk. Generally I try to over-engineer my electrical designs to make up for my incompetence. Some of the design choices may seem odd but have reasoning behind it that may not be apparent at first. A lot of the materials I used were already on hand and were either free or cheap. If you think I should have done things differently, I'd be happy hear from you but please be nice!

TLDR, Basic Specs...
(4) 100 Watt Renogy Monocrystalline Solar Panels
(6) 225AH 6V Lead Acid Golf Cart Batteries (series and parallel for 675AH 12V)
(20 ft) 2 AWG Copper Cables
(1) 1800 Watt DC/AC Inverter
(1) 60A MPPT Solar Charge Controller

I've built a mostly complete parts list here with Google Sheets. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ntLIxUjBPDQZN__vHUV0RzNPnzy4xBO7PRnIbkUv170/edit?usp=sharing

This is the circuit design I came up with, this should be simple enough to follow along with basic circuit design understanding. Again, I'm not a professional electrician.
Nifty circuit design
For the rest of this project overview, I figured it would be most logical to work from the top down.
I installed these brackets from Renogy. This was one of the most time consuming steps. I probably should have increased the pitch on these for optimal sunshine.
Positioning the (4) 100 watt solar panels.
I decided to run wires for each solar panel rather than wiring them in series. To save money, I bought the cheapest glands I could find, these did not come with screws or sealant. I ran 10 AWG wire through the glands and sealed the roof entry with black roofing caulk. Then applied the roofing caulk to the plastic body and screwed it down. I installed standard MC4 solar panel connectors, these are crimped and soldered.

I decided to have the glands positioned underneath the panels to provide optimal protection from the elements and a cleaner look. Having another set of MC4 connectors here also makes it easy to change panels or reconfigure my setup later on.

The wires from the roof drop in like this. I used simple cable tacks to secure them. I split the positive and negative wires to run along separate boards.
Working off of my initial circuit design, I worked up the placement of the components on the main power panel. Solar would come in on the top and the batteries would be connected to the bottom.
These busbars were some of the most expensive components but worked very nicely for my application.
I ran ground wires along the backside to ground the components and mounting bolts. These connect to the MPPT controller, inverter, and later on a grounding rod.
The main power panel is installed on the wall. The positive solar power leads run to a 35 Amp breaker before continuing to the 60 Amp MPPT charge controller.
MPPT up close.
At the base of this system are six 6 Volt lead acid batteries. I wired the batteries in series creating three 12 Volt battery banks and then wired them in parallel on the main power panel busbars.
I used 2 AWG copper wire and crimped on lugs for for the batteries and inverter leads.
System overview...
I can now easily power my iMac, power my soldering iron, charge my drill batteries, charge my lawn mower battery, and power my LED lighting.
Pretty!
Bonus!
If you ever wanted to know if I can mine bitcoins on this rig, the answer is not really. This lasted for about 12 minutes before low voltage shutoff on the inverter. The 2 AWG leads going to the inverter got warm!

Greg Maxwell /u/nullc (CTO of Blockstream) has sent me two private messages in response to my other post today (where I said "Chinese miners can only win big by following the market - not by following Core/Blockstream."). In response to his private messages, I am publicly posting my reply, here:

Note:
Greg Maxell nullc sent me 2 short private messages criticizing me today. For whatever reason, he seems to prefer messaging me privately these days, rather than responding publicly on these forums.
Without asking him for permission to publish his private messages, I do think it should be fine for me to respond to them publicly here - only quoting 3 phrases from them, namely: "340GB", "paid off", and "integrity" LOL.
There was nothing particularly new or revealing in his messages - just more of the same stuff we've all heard before. I have no idea why he prefers responding to me privately these days.
Everything below is written by me - I haven't tried to upload his 2 PMs to me, since he didn't give permission (and I didn't ask). The only stuff below from his 2 PMs is the 3 phrases already mentioned: "340GB", "paid off", and "integrity". The rest of this long wall of text is just my "open letter to Greg."
TL;DR: The code that maximally uses the available hardware and infrastructure will win - and there is nothing Core/Blockstream can do to stop that. Also, things like the Berlin Wall or the Soviet Union lasted for a lot longer than people expected - but, conversely, the also got swept away a lot faster than anyone expected. The "vote" for bigger blocks is an ongoing referendum - and Classic is running on 20-25% of the network (and can and will jump up to the needed 75% very fast, when investors demand it due to the inevitable "congestion crisis") - which must be a massive worry for Greg/Adam/Austin and their backers from the Bilderberg Group. The debate will inevitably be decided in favor of bigger blocks - simply because the market demands it, and the hardware / infrastructure supports it.
Hello Greg Maxwell nullc (CTO of Blockstream) -
Thank you for your private messages in response to my post.
I respect (most of) your work on Bitcoin, but I think you were wrong on several major points in your messages, and in your overall economic approach to Bitcoin - as I explain in greater detail below:
Correcting some inappropriate terminology you used
As everybody knows, Classic or Unlimited or Adaptive (all of which I did mention specifically in my post) do not support "340GB" blocks (which I did not mention in my post).
It is therefore a straw-man for you to claim that big-block supporters want "340GB" blocks. Craig Wright may want that - but nobody else supports his crazy posturing and ridiculous ideas.
You should know that what actual users / investors (and Satoshi) actually do want, is to let the market and the infrastructure decide on the size of actual blocks - which could be around 2 MB, or 4 MB, etc. - gradually growing in accordance with market needs and infrastructure capabilities (free from any arbitrary, artificial central planning and obstructionism on the part of Core/Blockstream, and its investors - many of whom have a vested interest in maintaining the current debt-backed fiat system).
You yourself (nullc) once said somewhere that bigger blocks would probably be fine - ie, they would not pose a decentralization risk. (I can't find the link now - maybe I'll have time to look for it later.) I found the link:
https://np.reddit.com/btc/comments/43mond/even_a_year_ago_i_said_i_though_we_could_probably/
I am also surprised that you now seem to be among those making unfounded insinuations that posters such as myself must somehow be "paid off" - as if intelligent observers and participants could not decide on their own, based on the empirical evidence, that bigger blocks are needed, when the network is obviously becoming congested and additional infrastructure is obviously available.
Random posters on Reddit might say and believe such conspiratorial nonsense - but I had always thought that you, given your intellectual abilities, would have been able to determine that people like me are able to arrive at supporting bigger blocks quite entirely on our own, based on two simple empirical facts, ie:
  • the infrastructure supports bigger blocks now;
  • the market needs bigger blocks now.
In the present case, I will simply assume that you might be having a bad day, for you to erroneously and groundlessly insinuate that I must be "paid off" in order to support bigger blocks.
Using Occam's Razor
The much simpler explanation is that bigger-block supporters believe will get "paid off" from bigger gains for their investment in Bitcoin.
Rational investors and users understand that bigger blocks are necessary, based on the apparent correlation (not necessarily causation!) between volume and price (as mentioned in my other post, and backed up with graphs).
And rational network capacity planners (a group which you should be in - but for some mysterious reason, you're not) also understand that bigger blocks are necessary, and quite feasible (and do not pose any undue "centralization risk".)
As I have been on the record for months publicly stating, I understand that bigger blocks are necessary based on the following two objective, rational reasons:
  • because I've seen the graphs; and
  • because I've seen the empirical research in the field (from guys like Gavin and Toomim) showing that the network infrastructure (primarily bandwidth and latency - but also RAM and CPU) would also support bigger blocks now (I believe they showed that 3-4MB blocks would definitely work fine on the network now - possibly even 8 MB - without causing undue centralization).
Bigger-block supporters are being objective; smaller-block supporters are not
I am surprised that you no longer talk about this debate in those kind of objective terms:
  • bandwidth, latency (including Great Firewall of China), RAM, CPU;
  • centralization risk
Those are really the only considerations which we should be discussing in this debate - because those are the only rational considerations which might justify the argument for keeping 1 MB.
And yet you, and Adam Back adam3us, and your company Blockstream (financed by the Bilderberg Group, which has significant overlap with central banks and the legacy, debt-based, violence-backed fiat money system that has been running and slowing destroying our world) never make such objective, technical arguments anymore.
And when you make unfounded conspiratorial, insulting insinuations saying people who disagree with you on the facts must somehow be "paid off", then you are now talking like some "nobody" on Reddit - making wild baseless accusations that people must be "paid off" to support bigger blocks, something I had always thought was "beneath" you.
Instead, Occams's Razor suggests that people who support bigger blocks are merely doing so out of:
  • simple, rational investment policy; and
  • simple, rational capacity planning.
At this point, the burden is on guys like you (nullc) to explain why you support a so-called scaling "roadmap" which is not aligned with:
  • simple, rational investment policy; and
  • simple, rational capacity planning
The burden is also on guys like you to show that you do not have a conflict of interest, due to Blockstream's highly-publicized connections (via insurance giant AXA - whose CED is also the Chairman of the Bilderberg Group; and companies such as the "Big 4" accounting firm PwC) to the global cartel of debt-based central banks with their infinite money-printing.
In a nutshell, the argument of big-block supporters is simple:
If the hardware / network infrastructure supports bigger blocks (and it does), and if the market demands it (and it does), then we certainly should use bigger blocks - now.
You have never provided a counter-argument to this simple, rational proposition - for the past few years.
If you have actual numbers or evidence or facts or even legitimate concerns (regarding "centralization risk" - presumably your only argument) then you should show such evidence.
But you never have. So we can only assume either incompetence or malfeasance on your part.
As I have also publicly and privately stated to you many times, with the utmost of sincerity: We do of course appreciate the wealth of stellar coding skills which you bring to Bitcoin's cryptographic and networking aspects.
But we do not appreciate the obstructionism and centralization which you also bring to Bitcoin's economic and scaling aspects.
Bitcoin is bigger than you.
The simple reality is this: If you can't / won't let Bitcoin grow naturally, then the market is going to eventually route around you, and billions (eventually trillions) of investor capital and user payments will naturally flow elsewhere.
So: You can either be the guy who wrote the software to provide simple and safe Bitcoin scaling (while maintaining "reasonable" decentralization) - or the guy who didn't.
The choice is yours.
The market, and history, don't really care about:
  • which "side" you (nullc) might be on, or
  • whether you yourself might have been "paid off" (or under a non-disclosure agreement written perhaps by some investors associated the Bilderberg Group and the legacy debt-based fiat money system which they support), or
  • whether or not you might be clueless about economics.
Crypto and/or Bitcoin will move on - with or without you and your obstructionism.
Bigger-block supporters, including myself, are impartial
By the way, my two recent posts this past week on the Craig Wright extravaganza...
...should have given you some indication that I am being impartial and objective, and I do have "integrity" (and I am not "paid off" by anybody, as you so insultingly insinuated).
In other words, much like the market and investors, I don't care who provides bigger blocks - whether it would be Core/Blockstream, or Bitcoin Classic, or (the perhaps confusingly-named) "Bitcoin Unlimited" (which isn't necessarily about some kind of "unlimited" blocksize, but rather simply about liberating users and miners from being "limited" by controls imposed by any centralized group of developers, such as Core/Blockstream and the Bilderbergers who fund you).
So, it should be clear by now I don't care one way or the other about Gavin personally - or about you, or about any other coders.
I care about code, and arguments - regardless of who is providing such things - eg:
  • When Gavin didn't demand crypto proof from Craig, and you said you would have: I publicly criticized Gavin - and I supported you.
  • When you continue to impose needless obstactles to bigger blocks, then I continue to criticize you.
In other words, as we all know, it's not about the people.
It's about the code - and what the market wants, and what the infrastructure will bear.
You of all people should know that that's how these things should be decided.
Fortunately, we can take what we need, and throw away the rest.
Your crypto/networking expertise is appreciated; your dictating of economic parameters is not.
As I have also repeatedly stated in the past, I pretty much support everything coming from you, nullc:
  • your crypto and networking and game-theoretical expertise,
  • your extremely important work on Confidential Transactions / homomorphic encryption.
  • your desire to keep Bitcoin decentralized.
And I (and the network, and the market/investors) will always thank you profusely and quite sincerely for these massive contributions which you make.
But open-source code is (fortunately) à la carte. It's mix-and-match. We can use your crypto and networking code (which is great) - and we can reject your cripple-code (artificially small 1 MB blocks), throwing it where it belongs: in the garbage heap of history.
So I hope you see that I am being rational and objective about what I support (the code) - and that I am also always neutral and impartial regarding who may (or may not) provide it.
And by the way: Bitcoin is actually not as complicated as certain people make it out to be.
This is another point which might be lost on certain people, including:
And that point is this:
The crypto code behind Bitcoin actually is very simple.
And the networking code behind Bitcoin is actually also fairly simple as well.
Right now you may be feeling rather important and special, because you're part of the first wave of development of cryptocurrencies.
But if the cryptocurrency which you're coding (Core/Blockstream's version of Bitcoin, as funded by the Bilderberg Group) fails to deliver what investors want, then investors will dump you so fast your head will spin.
Investors care about money, not code.
So bigger blocks will eventually, inevitably come - simply because the market demand is there, and the infrastructure capacity is there.
It might be nice if bigger blocks would come from Core/Blockstream.
But who knows - it might actually be nicer (in terms of anti-fragility and decentralization of development) if bigger blocks were to come from someone other than Core/Blockstream.
So I'm really not begging you - I'm warning you, for your own benefit (your reputation and place in history), that:
Either way, we are going to get bigger blocks.
Simply because the market wants them, and the hardware / infrastructre can provide them.
And there is nothing you can do to stop us.
So the market will inevitably adopt bigger blocks either with or without you guys - given that the crypto and networking tech behind Bitcoin is not all that complex, and it's open-source, and there is massive pent-up investor demand for cryptocurrency - to the tune of multiple billions (or eventually trillions) of dollars.
It ain't over till the fat lady sings.
Regarding the "success" which certain small-block supports are (prematurely) gloating about, during this time when a hard-fork has not happened yet: they should bear in mind that the market has only begun to speak.
And the first thing it did when it spoke was to dump about 20-25% of Core/Blockstream nodes in a matter of weeks. (And the next thing it did was Gemini added Ethereum trading.)
So a sizable percentage of nodes are already using Classic. Despite desperate, irrelevant attempts of certain posters on these forums to "spin" the current situation as a "win" for Core - it is actually a major "fail" for Core.
Because if Core/Blocksteam were not "blocking" Bitcoin's natural, organic growth with that crappy little line of temporary anti-spam kludge-code which you and your minions have refused to delete despite Satoshi explicitly telling you to back in 2010 ("MAX_BLOCKSIZE = 1000000"), then there would be something close to 0% nodes running Classic - not 25% (and many more addable at the drop of a hat).
This vote is ongoing.
This "voting" is not like a normal vote in a national election, which is over in one day.
Unfortunately for Core/Blockstream, the "voting" for Classic and against Core is actually two-year-long referendum.
It is still ongoing, and it can rapidly swing in favor of Classic at any time between now and Classic's install-by date (around January 1, 2018 I believe) - at any point when the market decides that it needs and wants bigger blocks (ie, due to a congestion crisis).
You know this, Adam Back knows this, Austin Hill knows this, and some of your brainwashed supporters on censored forums probably know this too.
This is probably the main reason why you're all so freaked out and feel the need to even respond to us unwashed bigger-block supporters, instead of simply ignoring us.
This is probably the main reason why Adam Back feels the need to keep flying around the world, holding meetings with miners, making PowerPoint presentations in English and Chinese, and possibly also making secret deals behind the scenes.
This is also why Theymos feels the need to censor.
And this is perhaps also why your brainwashed supporters from censored forums feel the need to constantly make their juvenile, content-free, drive-by comments (and perhaps also why you evidently feel the need to privately message me your own comments now).
Because, once again, for the umpteenth time in years, you've seen that we are not going away.
Every day you get another worrisome, painful reminder from us that Classic is still running on 25% of "your" network.
And everyday get another worrisome, painful reminder that Classic could easily jump to 75% in a matter of days - as soon as investors see their $7 billion wealth starting to evaporate when the network goes into a congestion crisis due to your obstructionism and insistence on artificially small 1 MB blocks.
If your code were good enough to stand on its own, then all of Core's globetrotting and campaigning and censorship would be necessary.
But you know, and everyone else knows, that your cripple-code does not include simple and safe scaling - and the competing code (Classic, Unlimited) does.
So your code cannot stand on its own - and that's why you and your supporters feel that it's necessary to keep up the censorship and and the lies and the snark. It's shameful that a smart coder like you would be involved with such tactics.
Oppressive regimes always last longer than everyone expects - but they also also collapse faster than anyone expects.
We already have interesting historical precedents showing how grassroots resistance to centralized oppression and obstructionism tends to work out in the end. The phenomenon is two-fold:
  • The oppression usually drags on much longer than anyone expects; and
  • The liberation usually happens quite abruptly - much faster than anyone expects.
The Berlin Wall stayed up much longer than everyone expected - but it also came tumbling down much faster than everyone expected.
Examples of opporessive regimes that held on surprisingly long, and collapsed surpisingly fast, are rather common - eg, the collapse of the Berlin Wall, or the collapse of the Soviet Union.
(Both examples are actually quite germane to the case of Blockstream/Core/Theymos - as those despotic regimes were also held together by the fragile chewing gum and paper clips of denialism and censorship, and the brainwashed but ultimately complacent and fragile yes-men that inevitably arise in such an environment.)
The Berlin Wall did indeed seem like it would never come down. But the grassroots resistance against it was always there, in the wings, chipping away at the oppression, trying to break free.
And then when it did come down, it happened in a matter of days - much faster than anyone had expected.
That's generally how these things tend to go:
  • oppression and obstructionism drag on forever, and the people oppressing freedom and progress erroneously believe that Core/Blockstream is "winning" (in this case: Blockstream/Core and you and Adam and Austin - and the clueless yes-men on censored forums like r\bitcoin who mindlessly support you, and the obedient Chinese miners who, thus far, have apparently been to polite to oppose you) ;
  • then one fine day, the market (or society) mysteriously and abruptly decides one day that "enough is enough" - and the tsunami comes in and washes the oppressors away in the blink of an eye.
So all these non-entities with their drive-by comments on these threads and their premature gloating and triumphalism are irrelevant in the long term.
The only thing that really matters is investors and users - who are continually applying grassroots pressure on the network, demanding increased capacity to keep the transactions flowing (and the price rising).
And then one day: the Berlin Wall comes tumbling down - or in the case of Bitcoin: a bunch of mining pools have to switch to Classic, and they will do switch so fast it will make your head spin.
Because there will be an emergency congestion crisis where the network is causing the price to crash and threatening to destroy $7 billion in investor wealth.
So it is understandable that your supports might sometimes prematurely gloat, or you might feel the need to try to comment publicly or privately, or Adam might feel the need to jet around the world.
Because a large chunk of people have rejected your code.
And because many more can and will - and they'll do in the blink of an eye.
Classic is still out there, "waiting in the wings", ready to be installed, whenever the investors tell the miners that it is needed.
Fortunately for big-block supporters, in this "election", the polls don't stay open for just one day, like in national elections.
The voting for Classic is on-going - it runs for two years. It is happening now, and it will continue to happen until around January 1, 2018 (which is when Classic-as-an-option has been set to officially "expire").
To make a weird comparison with American presidential politics: It's kinda like if either Hillary or Trump were already in office - but meanwhile there was also an ongoing election (where people could change their votes as often as they want), and the day when people got fed up with the incompetent incumbent, they can throw them out (and install someone like Bernie instead) in the blink of an eye.
So while the inertia does favor the incumbent (because people are lazy: it takes them a while to become informed, or fed up, or panicked), this kind of long-running, basically never-ending election favors the insurgent (because once the incumbent visibly screws up, the insurgent gets adopted - permanently).
Everyone knows that Satoshi explicitly defined Bitcoin to be a voting system, in and of itself. Not only does the network vote on which valid block to append next to the chain - the network also votes on the very definition of what a "valid block" is.
Go ahead and re-read the anonymous PDF that was recently posted on the subject of how you are dangerously centralizing Bitcoin by trying to prevent any votes from taking place:
https://np.reddit.com/btc/comments/4hxlquhoh_a_warning_regarding_the_onset_of_centralised/
The insurgent (Classic, Unlimited) is right (they maximally use available bandwidth) - while the incumbent (Core) is wrong (it needlessly throws bandwidth out the window, choking the network, suppressing volume, and hurting the price).
And you, and Adam, and Austin Hill - and your funders from the Bilderberg Group - must be freaking out that there is no way you can get rid of Classic (due to the open-source nature of cryptocurrency and Bitcoin).
Cripple-code will always be rejected by the network.
Classic is already running on about 20%-25% of nodes, and there is nothing you can do to stop it - except commenting on these threads, or having guys like Adam flying around the world doing PowerPoints, etc.
Everything you do is irrelevant when compared against billions of dollars in current wealth (and possibly trillions more down the road) which needs and wants and will get bigger blocks.
You guys no longer even make technical arguments against bigger blocks - because there are none: Classic's codebase is 99% the same as Core, except with bigger blocks.
So when we do finally get bigger blocks, we will get them very, very fast: because it only takes a few hours to upgrade the software to keep all the good crypto and networking code that Core/Blockstream wrote - while tossing that single line of 1 MB "max blocksize" cripple-code from Core/Blockstream into the dustbin of history - just like people did with the Berlin Wall.

Need your opinion about BTC P2P transaction

Hi, we're developing a product. You'll be able to send BTC P2P transaction with 0 fees between non-custodial multisig wallets. We think it may replaces fiat money transfer in some cases. Such as in Thailand, there are huge costs in money transfers. Also, it might useful for unbanked people.

Would you use it even if you're not a BTC fan?

Please type below why do you use/or not.

$INTV Integrated Ventures Signs A Multi Year Hosting And Marketing Agreement With PetaWatt Properties, LLC

https://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/INTV/news/Integrated-Ventures-Signs-A-Multi-Year-Hosting-And-Marketing-Agreement-With-PetaWatt-Properties-LLC?id=227523
PHILADELPHIA, PA / ACCESSWIRE / May 8, 2019 / Integrated Ventures Inc (OTCQB: INTV) ("Company") is pleased to announce a signing of a Hosting and Marketing Agreement with PetaWatt Properties, LLC. As result, the previously contemplated transaction to acquire Erie Power, LLC has been terminated, due to (1) need for a significant capital requirements to re-start plant and build out mining infrastructure, (2) up to 6 months time line for launch of mining operations, (3) need for a significant dilution due to the recent stock pricing weakness and (4) company's ability to secure a similar deal, in terms of power cost, without any additional investment.
>The Agreement
On May 7, 2019, Integrated Ventures has signed a three-year Agreement with PetaWatt Properties, LLC, which will allow Integrated Ventures (1) to consolidate and streamline all mining operations (NC, PA and NJ) into one location, (2) to eliminate Company's lease obligations and payroll expense and (3) to lower its power costs by over 50%, thus greatly enhancing mining profitability and long-term viability.
In addition, Integrated Ventures intends to market PW's services to diversify its business by offering hosting and pool services via a la carte packages to third-party miners and market participants.
> Crypto Market Is Coming Back!
Digital currencies are an emerging asset class underpinned by blockchain, a transformational technology with use cases in virtually every industry.
After experiencing historic growth (growing from a $7 billion market cap in January 2016 to a more than $600 billion market cap by late 2017), the cryptocurrency market entered a bear phase.
However, recovery has been strong in recent months, with Bitcoin's value increasing nearly 70% from December 2018 to May 2019.
Growing Institutional interest, a low cost of mining equipment and ROI are key factors for investment at these levels.
> Business Strategy
The company has formulated and plans to execute a 6 step plan, designed to position INTV for the next bull cycle:
  1. Operational Restructuring. To streamline and improve profitability of current operations, the company is switching from warehouse mining to third party hosting model, based on monthly flat fee and resulting in elimination of all major expenses such monthly lease, payroll, etc. All mining equipment (775+ rigs) is scheduled to be connected by May 30th.
  2. Securing Competitive Electricity Rates. By partnering with PetaWatt, Integrated Ventures will secure access to a lowest power pricing structure.
  3. Generating Cash Flow via Hosting & Mining Revenue Share Services. Integrated Ventures intends to generate significant revenue through reselling of hosting and revenue share services.
  4. Locking-In Record Low Hosting Rate. Newly secured Integrated Ventures' access to the most competitive power cost, will allow the company to utilize and market one of the the most competitive hosting rates in the industry, thus driving profitability and demand for long-term hosting contracts.
  5. Implementing All-In-One "Plug-and-Mine" Mining Solution. Integrated Ventures will offer clients an access to best hosting and pool rates for ASIC and GPU miners, creating a "We Work" -style turn-key mining option for miners seeking a fast market entry combined with a cost effective hosting and pool space.
  6. Purchasing Discounted Mining Rigs from Secondary Markets. Integrated Ventures will keep costs low by purchasing equipment on the secondary market, a strategy that was not possible when the market was in its infancy.
> Why Ramp Up Now?
MarketStability: Bitcoin, and the broader crypto market, have been in recovery following a prolonged bear cycle. Bitcoin has risen from a low of $3,200 in December 2018 to roughly $6,000 in early May, 2019. The cryptocurrency sector market cap has risen from roughly $100 billion to $190 billion over the same period.
GreatPoint & Less Competition: The cryptocurrency market's performance in 2019 indicates a reversal has occurred. However, the markets current total value is still less than 1/3rd of its value in January 2018. Additionally, the bear market was responsible for significant miner attrition. Competition has eased, creating greater profits for those still mining.
>Revenue Opportunity
Integrated Ventures will grow and earn revenues as follows:
>Summary
Integrated Ventures will have reliable long-term access to inexpensive electricity through its three-year agreement with PetaWatt. An access to the low cost power is the key that will allow Integrated Ventures to mine far more profitably than most of its North American competitors and provide hosting services at the market's most competitive price point.
Cost certainty, created by uninterrupted access to affordable power, will allow Integrated Ventures to incorporate all of the above strategies into our business model.
The model allows Integrated Ventures to weather market downturns better than its competitors, while also positioning the company to earn significantly higher returns than its competitors during bull cycles.
Finally, Integrated Ventures will operate and host both ASIC and GPU mining equipment. The importance of this is the flexibility it provides.

$INTV Gains in Bitcoin Reignite Crypto Fever - Companies Aim to Lower Mining and Energy Costs

https://ih.advfn.com/stock-market/USOTC/integrated-ventures-inc-INTV/stock-news/79907963/gains-in-bitcoin-reignite-crypto-fever-companie

Integrated Ventures Inc. (OTCQB: INTV), a company that engages in digital currency mining operations through manufacturing equipment; selling mining rigs, as well as developing blockchain software, recently announced the signing of a Hosting and Marketing Agreement with PetaWatt Properties, LLC. As a result, the previously contemplated transaction to acquire Erie Power, LLC has been terminated, (1) due to a need for significant capital requirements to re-start the plant and build out mining infrastructure, (2) up to a 6 month timeline for launch of mining operations, (3) a need for a significant dilution due to the recent stock pricing weakness and (4) the company's ability to secure a similar deal, in terms of power cost, without any additional investment. On May 7, 2019, Integrated Ventures signed a three-year Agreement with PetaWatt Properties, LLC, which will allow Integrated Ventures to consolidate and streamline all mining operations (NC, PA and NJ) into one location, to eliminate the Company's lease obligations and payroll expenses and to lower its power costs by over 50%, thus greatly enhancing mining profitability and long-term viability. In addition, Integrated Ventures intends to market PW's services to diversify its business by offering hosting and pool services via a la carte packages to third-party miners and market participants. The company has formulated and plans to execute a 6 step plan, designed to position INTV for the next bull cycle:
  1. Operational Restructuring. To streamline and improve profitability of current operations, the company is switching from warehouse mining to third party hosting model, based on monthly flat fee and resulting in elimination of all major expenses such monthly lease, payroll, etc. All mining equipment (775+ rigs) is scheduled to be connected by May 30th.
  2. Securing Competitive Electricity Rates. By partnering with PetaWatt, Integrated Ventures will secure access to a lowest power pricing structure.
  3. Generating Cash Flow via Hosting & Mining Revenue Share Services. Integrated Ventures intends to generate significant revenue through reselling of hosting and revenue share services.
  4. Locking-In Record Low Hosting Rate. Newly secured Integrated Ventures' access to the most competitive power cost, will allow the company to utilize and market one of the most competitive hosting rates in the industry, thus driving profitability and demand for long-term hosting contracts.
  5. Implementing All-In-One "Plug-and-Mine" Mining Solution. Integrated Ventures will offer clients an access to best hosting and pool rates for ASIC and GPU miners, creating a "We Work" -style turn-key mining option for miners seeking a fast market entry combined with a cost effective hosting and pool space.
  6. Purchasing Discounted Mining Rigs from Secondary Markets. Integrated Ventures will keep costs low by purchasing equipment on the secondary market, a strategy that was not possible when the market was in its infancy.
Integrated Ventures will have reliable long-term access to inexpensive electricity through its three-year agreement with PetaWatt. Access to the low cost power is the key that will allow Integrated Ventures to mine far more profitably than most of its North American competitors and provide hosting services at the market's most competitive price point.

Ytaopal Agent Review + Guide

Hey Guys,
after I shipped my last few Hauls via Ytaopal I think I can give a honest Opinion about Ytaopal and can give you some Tips about Ytaopal
If you are using Superbuy, you should check out hyperionfr `s Guide here. Its better and bigger than mine but he only talked about Superbuy as Agent, that inspired me about doing my own little Guide for yall.

Structure

  1. Basics (brought to you by hyperionfr)
  2. How to buy from Taobao, Tmall, Yupoo and more Sources via Ytaopal
  3. Shipping and Customs (+ my Experiences)
  4. My Experiences with Ytaopal (+ compared to Superbuy)

Basics

1. What is an Agent?

tl;dr: An Agent is a commercial Service which lets you buy Items off of Chinese Websites and deliveres them to you. An Agent also sends you Pictures of your Items before shipping and is talking to the Sellers for you. These Services take a small fee for their Service but this is in the most cases absolutely worth it so you should use them.

For new users coming to this sub daily it is hard to directly understand the point of an agent. Be honest, you did not do better in your first days/weeks. So instead of redirecting them to the searchbar just explain it to them in 2 sentences.
The main website we buy our reps from is taobao.com. It is like a amazon or eBay for China - solely for China. The problem that results is that we need a connection between your country and China. You cannot buy from TaoBao directly (for most of the countries) and you probably would not understand anything. So here comes the agent in hand. You browse through your favorite TaoBao shops and find some items you want to buy. Now you do not buy it through TaoBao but through your agent (in our case Ytaopal). Ytaopal now buys this exact item and lets it deliver to their warehouse. You ask for pictures, measurements, exchanges, returns etc. When everything is fine Ytaopal will package everything and deliver it to you. They are the connection between you and TaoBao.
(the longer Text was written by hyperionfr for his Guide)

2. Which agent to use?

As suggested by the Title of the Post, Im using Ytaopal. In my time into Fashionreps I used a few Agents like Superbuy, Basetao, CSSBuy and Ytaopal. None of them is bad but there are some differences in their offerings and prices. For first-time buyers I would suggest going with Superbuy, which is a bit more expensive then the other ones but is the most professional and the most easy to use. In addition, you can find more than enough Guides for buying via Superbuy on this Subreddit.

How to buy from Taobao, Tmall, Yupoo and more Sources via Ytaopal

1. Buying things on Chinese Websites

tl;dr Taobao/Tmall Tutorial:
  1. get a Link for what you want
  2. go to Ytaopal and paste your Link into the Searchbar
  3. Select type and sizing
  4. Click the "Add to Cart" Button
  5. Go into your Cart
  6. Click the Checkout Button
  7. Pay the Items

1.1 Signing Up

Just go to the top-right corner and select "Register". Just put in your email, username and password and you should be fine.

1.2 Finding Items

You can buy Items from many different Chinese Sites. You can find the officially Supported Sites on Ytaopals Homepage, altough its not listed there, you can order from Yupoo and Wechat too.
For finding the Items you want, just take a look into the Subreddit and check out some of the Hauls other Guys did. In most cases you can find a Review of the Item and a Link to the Seller. You can also click some recommended Links on Taobao or explore some sellers on Yupoo.
A big help while checking out Items on Taobao can be u/AColdFloor `s QCSuite Addon which can be found here. It displays the QC Pictures of other Users to you right on the Taobao site. With that, you can check how the Item looks in reality and can decide better.
For Translating Chinese I found Google Translator (for Websites) and Yandex Image OCR (for Pictures) the most useful. Most of the time you can get a Sense of what the Seller is trying to tell you.

1.3 Buying Items

If you found the Items you want, click at the Searchbar at the Homepage of Ytaopal and just Copy your Link into it. If its a Link from a officially Supported Site you can just Click the Options and you see a Picture of your Pick. The Price will also be automatically filled.
If you want to order from CNFashionBuy/CNFashionPub, scroll down at the Articles Site and click the Yupoo link. After you got the Yupoo Link just do the usual Ordering Process through Yupoo (below). When using the CN Sites, set the "Price" to that listed on the Site and set "Shipping" to 0.
If you want to order from Yupoo, paste the Link into the searchbar on the Homepage and the Ytaopal Site will be Blank. Now fill out the Blank Spaces, into "Title" just copy the Name of the Yupoo Album of your desired Item. Prices should be listed somewhere on Yupoo too. Now just fill in the Size you want into the "Comments" field.
If you want to order from WeChat, write an Email towards [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) telling them the WeChat Name and the Items you want, try to specify what you want as specific as possible.

1.4 Paying

Ytaopal uses a Balance System, that means you cant be overcharged and can only pay what you charged up before. All Refunds will be added to your Ytaopal Balance.
To charge up your balance just navigate to the Dashboard of your Ytaopal Account and click "recharge". For adding Money to your Account you can use Debit Cards, Bitcoin, Western Union, Bank Transfer, iDeal, Giropay, Polipayment, Trustpay, EPS, Mistercash, Mybank (France/Belgium/Italy and Luxembourg), Sofort, Safetypay and Multibanco. You can select the amount you want to charge up and the fees for it will be shown below.
If you want to pay with Paypal (which is pretty likely), just write an Email at the Support. They are gonna tell you the Paypal-adress and what you have to do. Paying with Paypal is fee-less and takes 24h at most. (the Support needs to add the Balance manually to your Account)

1.5 the Warehouse

After you ordered your Items, you can see them listed in your Warehouse after they arrive at Ytaopal. The Warehouse lists your Items and shows the Order-Number, Price and Weight.
When your Items are listed in the Warehouse, you can click on "QC Album" (on the Dashboard) or "My QC Pictures" (at the Sidebar) to see the Pictures your Agent took of your Pieces. In my opinion, those pictures are far superior to the QC Pics of Superbuy. (more to my Experiences down below)

2. Getting your Items shipped to you

tl;dr Tutorial:
  1. go to your Warehouse
  2. select the Items you want to ship
  3. click the "Add to package" Button
  4. Fill in your Adress and your favourite shipping method
  5. Pay for your Package
To get your fresh new clothes shipped to you, just go to your Warehouse and tick the Boxes besides the Items you want to ship then click "add new Package" and you will be taken towards the Checkout Screen. There you select your Shipping Adress, Shipping Service (DHL GANG GANG) and Select if you wanted to keep Boxes or throw them away. You should throw them away if you dont need them, that saves you a lot of money and can be benefical with the customs. Underneath you can input some Comments that you want to tell Ytaopal, unless like other Agents Ytaopal will not write those Comments on your Parcel.

2.1 Declaration

tl;dr Tutorial:
  1. Check the total weight of your Parcel
  2. Check the Customs Regulations about Parcels for your Country
  3. Pick the Price you want to declare your Haul at
  4. Submit your Parcel
  5. Write an Email to the Support including your Parcel-Number and tell them how you want to declare your Items.
  6. Ask the Support to send you the Invoice they put on your Parcel
My Tip for you is to let the Comment Section blank and write an Email to the Support after you submitted your Parcel. When you write an Email you can tell them exactly how you want to declare it. If you dont tell them anything they will declare it at original Pricing so you should at least do it in the Comments if you dont want to write that Email. Also, if you dont tell them anything about the Items inside, they will just put the real Items on the Box (e.g. if you bought 3 Hoodies and 1 Shirt, it will just be declared at 3 Hoodies and 1 Shirt but fitting to the Price you want). If you just say they should declare it to 30$ for example they are gonna fit your Items to 30$ with free Shipping. Depending on your Country, you should probably set it to ~5$ Shipping or how you want. Remember to ask them to send you the Invoice they put on the Parcel.
You will not receive a shipping Refund with Ytaopal, but the Pricing is a good bit cheaper than Superbuys. You can calculate shipping Prices via the Calculator found on their Homepage, remember that this is only accurate with EMS as DHL goes for volumetric weight which you cannot be calculated.

2.2 What happens when the Customs Check my Haul

First Advice, calm down. It is very unlikely that Customs open up your Haul randomly. If you are in a Country of the European Union, Customs cannot open your Parcel without you accepting to open it if its not looking Suspicious.

If you are using DHL, just check the Tracking Site to see your Parcelstatus."Customs status updated" - Your Parcel has been announced to Customs or you need to hand-in a Proof of Worth for your Items. You can see this when clicking on the "+ Button" on the tracking Site.
" Processed for clearance at LEIPZIG - GERMANY " - The Customs started working on your Parcel, nothing bad.
" Clearance event " - Your Parcel is stuck or delayed, most of the time you are fine. If its on this Status for a longer Period of time, call DHL."Clearance processing complete at LEIPZIG - GERMANY " - Your Parcel got through Customs without Problems!
How to do the Proof of Worth:
Obviously, you dont want to pay Taxes so you need to fake the Invoice. The Invoice that Ytaopal sent you is not going to be accepted as such Invoices can easily be faked. So what do you send the Customs then?
Just go to your Paypal recent activities and pick a Payment. Click F12 and edit the Date of the Transaction (to the Date your Parcel was Packed), the Worth (to your declared Value). Just take a Screenshot of your edited Transaction and upload it to DHL4You. You may need to call them and tell them you uploaded it afterwards.
Sometimes they want the Proof of Worth for every single Item, just go to your Parcel on Ytaopal and F12 again. Change the Values of the Items to match the total worth of your Parcel and just send them this Screenshot too.

There are probably Guides for declaration for your specific Countries on the Subreddit, just search them.

3. My Experiences with Ytaopal (+ compared to Superbuy)

In my Experience, Ytaopals Customer Support is the best I ever encountered. Big thanks to Alice and Shmily for helping me out with my Questions and Orders. As you can see in the Pics, I spammed them a little bit and they were very kind and never Rude. Remember Bois, always be nice to your Agent and Sellers, they are getting your Shit for you.
The Emails I wrote to Ytaopal Imgur
Here is a quick comparison between the 2 Agentservices:
Ytaopal Superbuy
- better QC Pics - definetly worse QC pics
- more Personal, worse Website - more automated, better Website
- uses their own Mind instead of just doing what you said - does strictly what you said
- only Beijing-Time Support - 24/7 Support
- fewer Workers, slower when there are more Parcels - more Workers

As seen in the Table, Ytaopal is an Agent which requires you to Contact them a lot to manage your Shipments and Orders. That may be a bit complicated for newcommers, but gives experienced shoppers a lot more "customization".


If you got any more Questions or anything, just write a Comment or send me Message, im glad to help.

[À Lire] Tout sur Monero, résumé en Français

Qu'est ce que Monero (XMR)?
Monero est une (crypto-)devise sécurisée, personnelle et intraçable. Monero est Open-source et librement accessible à tous.
Monero est une vraie monnaie que tout le monde peut réellement utiliser dans la vraie vie. Il permet simplement de recevoir des paiements sans de soucier de la provenance des fonds. Avec les systèmes dit 'transparents' comme Bitcoin, Ethereum, Verge ou Dash (par exemple), les personnes ne peuvent qu'espérer (ou bien passer pas mal de temps à vérifier) que le payeur n'a pas utilisé ses fonds de manière frauduleuse. De plus, les vendeurs ne souhaitent pas que les acheteurs soit tracés et connus de tout, tout comme chacun d'entre nous ne veut pas que tout le monde sache combien nous dépensions. Si je dépense plus que je ne devrais sur Amazon, c'est mon problème.
Monero est différent car chacune des transactions est toujours privée. Il n'y a aucun moyen pour une mine ou une plateforme d’échange de devise de désactiver ces transactions privées. Par conséquent, l’anonymat offert par Monero dépasse largement celui des autres cryptomonnaies. À ce jour (depuis le fork de septembre), 100% des transactions cachent l'émetteur, le receveur et le montant. Il n'y a également aucune raison d'avoir peur d'effectuer une transaction privée, puisque toutes les transactions Monero le sont. En aucun cas une transaction peut "briller" plus que les autres.
Cette "privacy" (ce qui relève du privé, au sens personnel) est apportée par ces 4 principales technos :
Il y a bien d'autres choses qui font que Monero est un bon projet :
Maintenant que vous être familier avec Monero, et êtes convaincu qu'il utilise ce qui se fait de mieux en cryptographie, qu'apporte-t-il de plus par rapport aux autres crypto-monnaies ?
Suis-je un forcément un délinquant si j'utilise Monero ?
Non, bien sûr que non. Monero se considère comme la monnaie de la liberté. Il est possible d'en faire ce que l'on veut, où on veut, quand on le veux. Cependant, il n'est évidement pas conseillé de mettre tout ses revenus dedans, bien que nous croyons fortement dans son utilité dans la vie réelle, il y a toujours un risque non négligeable lié aux marchés boursiers. Après, ce que vous en faites ne nous regarde pas ! (et il nous serait impossible de le savoir ! ;) )
D'où vient le mot "Monero" ?
Monero vient de l’Espéranto. Il signifie "pièce de monnaie", "monnaie" ou "devise". Le pluriel de Monero est "Moneroj"
OK. Comment débuter ? Comment stocker mes Moneroj ?
Nous recommandons UNIQUEMENT l'usage des logiciels officiels:
Guide d'installation pour grand-maman !
Y a-t-il un portefeuille léger pour Monero ?
Pas pour le moment, mais il est possible d'utiliser l'interface officielle en la connectant à un nœud existant. C'est vrai que le client officiel est relativement lourd, mais les équipes de devs travaillent durement à son allègement.
Y a-t-il d'autre moyen de stocker des Moneroj ?
Oui, il existe plusieurs portefeuille pour mobile, mais nous ne les recommandons absolument pas car ils ne sont pas issus de développements officiels. Certains ont fait état de perte de Moneroj, de vol ou autre. Si vous voulez tout de même utilisez un portefeuille tiers, faites le en tout état de cause et de connaissance, et pour de petites sommes. La plupart de ces portefeuilles tiers possèdent vos clés privées (ce qui sert à générer votre adresse, et ne doit absolument pas être connue de quiconque (sauf peut-être un avocat, pour vos enfants au cas où )) et donc les moneroj présents ne vous appartiennent pas.
Comment acheter des moneroj ?
Il existe plusieurs plateformes d’échange de cryptomonnaies contre des devises.
Pour changer des crypto-monnaies entre elles:
En France, il existe La Maison du Bitcoin, qui permet d'acheter des bitcoin par virement ou carte bleue. Il suffit ensuite de changer les bitcoins pour des Moneroj (XMR) via Shapeshift ou une des plateformes d’échange listées ci-dessus.
MINING:
Où trouver une bonne mine (pool) ? Monero Pools
Quel logiciel de minage utiliser ? CPU:
GPU:
J'ai un commerçant qui accepte uniquement les bitcoins, mais bitcoin n'est ni privé ni anonyme. Comment faire ?
Il est possible d'utiliser XMR.TO, mais il serait bien de sensibiliser votre vendeur sur l'absence de privacy et d’anonymat inhérent au Bitcoin. ;)
Liste des ARNAQUES avérées:
SubReddit en relation avec le Monero:
(tous en Anglais)
Note:
Ce post est une tentative hasardeuse de traduction faite par moi même du post original du sub principal. Si vous voyez une erreur, une coquille de trad ou une tournure de phrase ambiguë, dites le moi !
Je tenterais la traduction d'un des guides d'utilisation du GUI...

Amazon Mechanical Turk [International*]

Mturk is a platform that allows clients to post a large number of jobs. It is a bit more professional than the typical /beermoney site. You work for "requesters" and they can approve or reject your submitted tasks, also known as HITs. You can earn a lot more money on this site than other typical /beermoney sites, but you need to pay attention to which jobs you accept. Not all HITs pay well. They do require some sensitive information from you for tax purposes. Not everyone gets approved to work here, and some people will be approved months or years after being rejected. — Payment Proof.
*This site is international, but most of the tasks are only available for the USA. International users can only redeem Amazon.com balance.
↪ Age minimum: 18
↪ Offers: A large number of tasks including Surveys, Transcription, Translation, Website Testing, Data Entry and much more.
↪ Payout: [Minimum $0.01] Amazon.com Balance and Amazon Payments Balance. Amazon Payments Balance can be transferred to a bank account.
Note: All Amazon Balance is for the USA Amazon.com website regardless of your country.
↪ Referral Incentive: None
TIPS:
• Only do HITs that pay at least 10¢/minute. This gives you a rate of $6/hour. Mturk crowd forum and /hitsworthturkingfor are good places to check for higher paying HITs.
• It is better to return a HIT than to submit to if you are unsure whether the requester will approve it. Returning a HIT will not negatively affect you, but a rejection will.
Scripts are allowed and encouraged. Checked /mturk for more tips and suggestions.
 

UserTesting [International*]

UserTesting is a usability testing site. You get paid to record your screen and speak aloud while performing a number of specified tasks. These tasks are generally related to testing a website or an app, but some tests may have you complete a survey, play a game, test new software, etc. At the start you may receive $3 sample tests, but after a while you will see $10 unmoderated tests. Moderated tests start at $30 per test, and usually require you to have a webcam. Payment arrives via PayPal exactly 7 days after your test is completed. — Payment Proof.
*The site is International, but most earning opportunities are for US, UK, CA and AU.
↪ Age minimum: 18
↪ Offers: Usability testing
↪ Payout: [Minimum: None] PayPal
↪ Referral Incentive: None.
TIPS:
• Completing the unpaid surveys at the top may qualify you for additional tests.
• Make sure to follow instructions carefully, keep talking, and be professional. Keeping a high quality rating is essential if you want to receive plenty of tests.

Cash Back From Shopping Online

Sites to Avoid: Definitely DO NOT post these.

Earnsanity — Shady owner, sketchy site. Held giveaway and then refunded the prizes after it was over. History of scamming many others. AVOID AT ALL COSTS UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE SCAMMED.
Paidverts — Shady owner, sketchy site. Keeps doing debt swaps (cash to BAP). Do not post.
Neobux — It isn’t really a scam, but they operate as a pyramid scheme. There’s money to be made online, but it’s definitely not there.
MarketGlory — It does pay out, but the pay is absolutely ridiculous. The only way to make a decent amount of money is to have a lot of referrals, and referral whoring on this subreddit WILL result in a permanent ban.
MindSumo — Not actually a /beermoney site. It’s only spam in this sub.
G2A — Scam/sells stolen keys.
Robinhood — This is spammed on our sub constantly.
Quickthoughts — Many reports of people being banned when trying to withdraw as of 10/2018. Do your due diligence before possibly wasting your time on this app.
Sites with $100+ minimum — These sites usually offer higher than normal payments for simple tasks, with a high minimum to cash out. They are always scams.
Generic news sites that pay you ridiculous amounts to read an article (two euros??) — Common sense should take care of this, but in case it doesn’t, it’s always a scam. The site is usually hosted somewhere in Eastern Europe, and you will never get paid.
Free bitcoin sites/"faucets" (THIS INCLUDES QOINPRO) — This is not referring to those video-viewing/task sites (although they’re still paying fragments of a penny). I’m talking about sites that give you 0.000001BTC to fill a captcha (freebitco.in, dailybitcoins). Admittedly many beermoney sites pay low, but don’t even bother with these.
Also: Bitcoin mining is NO LONGER PROFITABLE. If you're really so keen on getting bitcoins, doing so through an exchange is your best option.
Here are a few more scam sites and sketchy sites.

Best mining GPU 2020: the best graphics cards for mining Bitcoin, Ethereum and more. By Matt Hanson, Michelle Rae Uy 18 August 2020. Join the cryptocurrency craze with the best mining GPUs. Disclosure: Mining metrics are calculated based on a network hash rate of 109,422 GH/s and using a USD exchange rate of 1 ETH = $ 387.849.. Block reward is fixed at 0 ETH and future block reward reductions are not taken into account. Bitcoin mining difficulty will usually only drop if Bitcoin prices do, but if that happens then your Bitcoin is worth less, which also pushes back the break-even point. As such, even if a cloud mining contract looks like it will be profitable, you’re still more likely to lose more than you earn. Users can now purchase cryptocurrency with a credit or debit card on Bitcoin.com's premier trading platform via a new partnership with Moonpay. The Hype Bitcoin: requisiti e da quando è disponibile.
