"In 2013, about $320 million of gold was mined per day. Presently, about 3600 bitcoins are mined each day. If Bitcoin was valued equally to gold, each bitcoin would thus be worth about $88,888."

The Blackmail Email Scam (part 4)

THIS THREAD IS NOW ARCHIVED, THE LATEST THREAD CAN BE FOUND HERE: https://old.reddit.com/Scams/comments/g8jqnthe_blackmail_email_scam_part_5/

TEXT, PHONE CALL, AND PHYSICAL MAIL VARIANTS ARE COVERED IN THE LATEST THREAD.

IF YOU RECEIVE A BLACKMAIL EMAIL, PLEASE REDACT THE PERSONAL INFORMATION AND POST IT AS A COMMENT ON THIS THREAD SO THAT OTHERS WHO RECEIVE THE SAME EMAIL CAN FIND IT THROUGH GOOGLE.

THIRD THREAD: https://old.reddit.com/Scams/comments/biv65o/the_blackmail_email_scam_part_3/

There have been many recent posts about the blackmail email scam, so I have written this post and will keep it stickied until the posts about the scam die down. If you are reading this because you have received one of these emails and you are worried, you can stop worrying. The blackmail email scam is a spam campaign that is sent out to thousands of addresses at a time. In al cases, the threats are lies and you do not have anything to worry about. In many cases, the emails will contain information about you such as your name, part or all of your phone number, and your password. The emails may also look like they were sent from your own email address. The data is gathered from data breaches, and if the email looks like it came from your account that is due to email spoofing. You can use the service Have I Been Pwned? to see if you are in any publicly known data breaches. If you receive an email that contains a password that you currently use, you should immediately change that. Current recommended password guidelines say that you should use a different, complex password for every account. You can generate and save passwords using a password manager for convenience. You should also be using two factor authentication using an app like Google Authenticator instead of receiving codes through SMS.
Here are some news articles about this scam. Here is a story from Brian Krebs, and here is a story from the New York Times.
Below are a few examples, but if you receive an email that is similar but not the same as the examples you see, that does not matter and does not mean that the email is real. The spammers constantly switch up their templates in order to bypass spam filters, so it's normal to receive an email that hasn't yet been posted online.
Hey there
So I am the hacker who cracked your email address and device a few weeks back.
You typed in your pwd on one of the sites you visited, and I intercepted that.
Here is your password from (redacted) upon time of compromise: (redacted)
Obviously you can can change it, or even already changed it.
However it won't really matter, my malware modified it every time.
Do not really try to contact me personally or find me.
Via your email, I uploaded harmful code to your Operation System.
I saved your entire contacts together with buddies, fellow workers, loved ones along with a entire history of visits to the World wide web resources.
Also I set up a Virus on your system.
You aren't my only target, I generally lock computers and ask for a ransom.
But I was hit by the web pages of romantic material that you normally stop by.
I am in shock of your own fantasies! I have never ever noticed anything at all like this!
Consequently, when you had enjoyment on piquant web-sites (you know what I am talking about!) I made screenshot with utilizing my program from your camera of yours device.
There after, I put together them to the content of the currently viewed site.
There will certainly be giggling when I send these pics to your connections!
Nevertheless I am certain you do not need this.
Therefore, I expect to have payment from you for my silence.
I feel $859 is an satisfactory price for this!
Pay with Bitcoin.
My Bitcoin wallet is xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
If you do not really understand how to do this - submit in to Google 'how to transfer money to the bitcoin wallet'. It is easy.
Immediately after getting the given amount, all your files will be right away destroyed automatically. My computer virus will also get rid of itself through your operating-system.
My Trojan viruses have auto alert, so I know when this specific e mail is read.
I give you 2 days (48 hours) to make a payment.
If this does not occur - just about all your associates will get outrageous pictures from your darkish secret life and your system will be blocked as well after two days.
Do not end up being foolish!
Police or buddies won't support you for sure ...
P.S I can provide you with recommendation for the future. Do not type in your security passwords on risky web pages.
I wish for your wisdom.
Bon voyage.
Your computer device was attacked by the malicious app . Whats the trouble? I placed my malicious agent on a erotica portal, you clicked on this data and promptly adjusted the malware to your computer . The hostile program made your selfie-camera shooting and I enjoy the videotape with you dash your doodle. In next 5 hours this hostile program copied all your contacts. Right now, I receive your all your contact information and video with you masturbating, and now if you wish me to destroy all the data affect payment 350 $USD in BTC digital currency. Other way I want forward that this record to all your contacts . I forward you my Bitcoin wallet - XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX You possess 27 hours after reading. In a case if I possess transaction I am going to undo that this record once for all. I beg pardon for my mistakes- I live in China . P.S. this postal address, I have thieved it
Good day,
If you had been more careful while caressing yourself, I wouldn't worry you. I don't think that playing with yourself is very bad, but when all your colleagues, relatives and friends get a video recording of it - it is definitely bad for you.
I placed malicious software on a website for adults (with porn) which was visited by you. When the target taps on a play button, your device starts recording the screen and all cameras on your device begin to work.
Moreover, my program allows a remote desktop connection with keylogger function from the device, so I could collect all contacts from your e-mail, messengers and other social networks. I'm writing on this e-mail cuz it's your working address, so you must check it.
I suppose that three hundred twenty usd is good enough for this little misstep. I made a split screen video (recorded from your screen (u have interesting tastes ) and camera ooooooh... its awful AF)
So it's your choice. If you want me to erase this compromising evidence, use my Bitcoin wallet address: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX You have one day after opening my message; I put a special tracking pixel in it, so when you will open it I will see. If you want me to show you the proofs, reply to this message and I will send my creation to five contacts that I got from your contacts.
P.S. You can try to complain to the police, but I don't think that they can help, the investigation will last for 5 month- I'm from Ukraine - so I dgf lmao

This excellent post as Subway & Dairy Queen.
Hello!
I'm a programmer who cracked your email account and device about half year ago. You entered a password on one of the insecure site you visited, and I catched it.
Of course you can will change your password, or already made it. But it doesn't matter, my rat software update it every time.
Please don't try to contact me or find me, it is impossible, since I sent you an email from your email account.
Through your e-mail, I uploaded malicious code to your Operation System. I saved all of your contacts with friends, colleagues, relatives and a complete history of visits to the Internet resources. Also I installed a rat software on your device and long tome spying for you.
You are not my only victim, I usually lock devices and ask for a ransom. But I was struck by the sites of intimate content that you very often visit.
I am in shock of your reach fantasies! Wow! I've never seen anything like this! I did not even know that SUCH content could be so exciting!
So, when you had fun on intime sites (you know what I mean!) I made screenshot with using my program from your camera of yours device. After that, I jointed them to the content of the currently viewed site.
Will be funny when I send these photos to your contacts! And if your relatives see it? BUT I'm sure you don't want it. I definitely would not want to ...
I will not do this if you pay me a little amount. I think $877 is a nice price for it!
I accept only Bitcoins. My BTC wallet: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
If you have difficulty with this - Ask Google "how to make a payment on a bitcoin wallet". It's easy. After receiving the above amount, all your data will be immediately removed automatically. My virus will also will be destroy itself from your operating system.
My Trojan have auto alert, after this email is looked, I will be know it!
You have 2 days (48 hours) for make a payment. If this does not happen - all your contacts will get crazy shots with your dirty life! And so that you do not obstruct me, your device will be locked (also after 48 hours)
Do not take this frivolously! This is the last warning! Various security services or antiviruses won't help you for sure (I have already collected all your data).
Here are the recommendations of a professional: Antiviruses do not help against modern malicious code. Just do not enter your passwords on unsafe sites!
I hope you will be prudent. Bye.
Same as before but they increased the amount
I got an order from someone to kill you and your family
but I am far from your house
if you still love your family, I ask you to transfer 0.1 BTC to me.

Hello!
I am a hacker who has access to your operating system.
I also have full access to your account.
I've been watching you for a few months now.
The fact is that you were infected with malware through an adult site that you visited.
If you are not familiar with this, I will explain.
Trojan Virus gives me full access and control over a computer or other device.
This means that I can see everything on your screen, turn on the camera and microphone, but you do not know about it.
I also have access to all your contacts and all your correspondence.
Why your antivirus did not detect malware?
Answer: My malware uses the driver, I update its signatures every 4 hours so that your antivirus is silent.
I made a video showing how you satisfy yourself in the left half of the screen, and in the right half you see the video that you watched.
With one click of the mouse, I can send this video to all your emails and contacts on social networks.
I can also post access to all your e-mail correspondence and messengers that you use.
If you want to prevent this,
transfer the amount of $500 to my bitcoin address (if you do not know how to do this, write to Google: "Buy Bitcoin").
My bitcoin address (BTC Wallet) is: x
After receiving the payment, I will delete the video and you will never hear me again.
I give you 50 hours (more than 2 days) to pay.
I have a notice reading this letter, and the timer will work when you see this letter.
Filing a complaint somewhere does not make sense because this email cannot be tracked like my bitcoin address.
I do not make any mistakes.
If I find that you have shared this message with someone else, the video will be immediately distributed.
Best regards.
Hey, I know your password is:
Your computer was infected with my malware, RAT (Remote Administration Tool), your browser wasn't updated / patched, in such case it's enough to just visit some website where my iframe is placed to get automatically infected, if you want to find out more - Google: "Drive-by exploit".
My malware gave me full access and control over your computer, meaning, I got access to all your accounts (see password above) and I can see everything on your screen, turn on your camera or microphone and you won't even notice about it.
I collected all your private data and I was spying on you, I RECORDED (through your webcam) embarrassing moments of you, you know what I mean!
After that I removed my malware to not leave any traces.
I can publish all your private data everywhere and I can send the videos to all your contacts, post it on social network, publish it on the whole web, including the darknet, where the sick people are!
Only you can prevent me from doing this and only I can help you out in this situation.
Transfer exactly 1200$ with the current bitcoin (BTC) price to my bitcoin address.
It's a very good offer, compared to all that horrible shit that will happen if I publish everything!
You can easily buy bitcoin here: www.paxful.com , www.coingate.com , www.coinbase.com , or check for bitcoin ATM near you, or Google for other exchanger. You can send the bitcoin directly to my address, or create your own wallet first here: www.login.blockchain.com/en/#/signup/ , then receive and send to mine.
My bitcoin address is:
Copy and paste my address, it's (cAsE-sEnSEtiVE)
I give you 3 days time to transfer the bitcoin!
As I got access to this email account, I will know if this email has already been read. If you get this email multiple times, it's to make sure you read it and after payment you can ignore it. After receiving the payment, I will remove everything and you can life your live in peace like before.
Next time update your browser before browsing the web!

Fraud cheque causing my account to close while over seas

I copied this post from scams but if anyone knows how to deal with this since I already called them to handle this since it wasn't me. I don't understand who would deposit a cheque in my name?
So this started on 05/18/2020 I was working in Thailand and definitely would love to be back the States right now. Anyway, so there was a notification and email saying I have a deposit of $100,000 that was posted on that day and I later on found out that Navy Federal Credit Union stopped my account for Suspicious Activity because someone mailed in a physical check with payable to me signed...? How? I'm in thailand I explained to them and now I'm stuck here without a bank account and the only payment I get is through Wire transfeSwift Transfer and as a veteran this screwed me big time because i'm in a foreign country and I cannot receive my VA disabilities or if stimulus check happens. I work as a contractor in Thailand for investors, oil rigs, and as well as a paymaster for myself and my two partner who does investment but it's funds from stocks and no physical cheques. I do get paid a good amount of money for each job and it ranges from 250k-800k because I arrange purchase of hotels, and i work as contractor for oil rigs as well since I was a Heavy Equipment operator in the corps. As for trading i've been doing it quite a while but sold my stocks and bitcoin and yes i paid tax on these. So now i'm trying to resolve this issue saying that it wasn't me idk who it is maybe it's one of the investor groups but these deals are contracted and the bank has the contract which doesn't make sense why a physical check with my name and it was endorse mailed in to Navy Federal.
Has anyone had this happen to them? Because now when I do make big amount of money I feel like they might close it down again even though I have contracts proving i am part of this job just to bring them and help them buying and promoting business etc....
Now let's not involved my job with this scam. The check that was physically mailed to Navy Federal came from the U.S. and I do not get paid by USA or do I associate myself with employment there right now except for my VA disability check and maybe stimulus, I get paid by German company, Thai, or Indonesia by Wire transfer or Swift no paperchecks at all. But yeah can anyone please explain or give me some ideas on how some retard mailed a check payable to my name with my signature when I can't send mail out of the country? this check was signed by me.
Okay sorry I'm just alittle jumpy since I'm very concern becuase I am in the dark about this and I've never experience this before and i'm just scared being stuck out here homeless or something. Anyway let me explain the situation that happened clearly. Someone Physically mailed a check to Navy Federal for deposit into my account without my knowledge for 100k endorsing the check with a signature(not mine) through U.S. postal without my knowledge. My investor and who ever sent the check has no contact with each other so who tf in the right mind would do this? because the investor is here with me, and he has duestch bank in germany so he does not need to send any kind of physical check since he will pay me in Swift transfer electronically and before he pays I have to inform navy federal and my tax attorney for obviously tax reason. But this physical cheque idk from who(I will find out tonight thailand time from navy fed),my employment for this contract does not involve any kind of physical check and the US bank is not involved in anyway that involves my employment with these investors so I see no benefit of someone sending me this check at all and forging it at that, keep in mind I cannot send mail out right now from thailand with the coronavirus but this mail was sent within the US which I am not currently residing in. Now in my current situation, I will get paid by my investor because I am helping him with the bank here, and helping him connect with people to invest in a hotel and I get a commission for promoting and setting up ads and popularity of this hotel. As for right now I am surviving with my VA military disability to pay my Bill's and stimulus check from the first wave and money I saved up before I EAS out of the military. And when I do get paid it will be and only be wire transfer(electronically) from my investors account with full documentation of where the funds are from, the contract of my employment and my attorney will be involved as well. But right now I don't have money to spend on this stupid situation for a lawyer about this fraud check case, I'm just trying to make a living but somebody has to screw me over from across the world. As for this investor himself, he knows I am good with bitcoin and investing in stocks, so he wants to help me build up an LLC for me but want me to invest by using my commission from this job and he will jump in once I show results and have his full support. But like I said right now I'm basically working for free until I fulfill the contract of helping him and yes he has a legitimate company, and I get paid in a week which how bad of a luck do I have? This happened before I get paid, and with that commission I open my business for investment for myself and yes I will get license as well later to be a broker. The commission I am getting will be taxed, and will be notified accordingly. But this isn't the issue, the issue is somebody send a damn fraud check without my knowledge, forging my signature and tried to deposit this and I don't even know a reason for this. I just want some advice on why and what will benefit who ever it is who did this. I hope this cleared it up the situation alittle
Update 2: Last night I got an email notifying me "Make Request in Person or in Writing
We're sorry we couldn't help you today. Your request can be submitted in writing or with an appropriate ID at one of our Navy Federal branches. Written requests can be submitted by mail to Navy Federal, P.O. Box 3000, Merrifield, VA 22119-3000. If your request is sent via express or overnight delivery, send to 820 Follin Lane, Vienna, VA 22180-4907. Didn't contact us? Call 1-888-xxx-xxxx. If international, call collect number."
I called them what this is about because I thought it was an update on my investigation. But here's the catch... they ask me "Was that you who called earlier today?" I said no that wasn't me at all I didn't call at all so they informed me that someone tried to call using a 312 area code, they knew my Name obviously, my date of birth, and my full ssn but they didn't get my codeword right so I was safe and I told them specifically that I am in thailand and cannot call using any other number except the one I have. I will now wait and see what will happen next. I as well updated my VA disabilities so these guys can't try anything funny.

2 years without a bet, settle off all my debts: a bit of a long read but I’ll try and be concise

It’s been two years since my last bet. I was married for less than 2 years and I hid everything from my wife. My smoking and my secretive gambling, she had no clue. A woman who gave up everything to marry the man she believes was her soulmate. And I lied to her everyday for most of our marriage.
When we first started dating, in the course of the 2013 NFL season, I lost weeks 1-16. Only 100 dollars a week on 7-8 team parlays. Week 17, I hit a parlay and make $7,888! Following season I made over 20k in NFL betting.
2015 season I made about 12k. And then I got married in 2016. My wife and I went to a casino twice that summer after we got married and I had just learned how to play Craps. I must’ve won about $3500 and we were having a blast. But then the 2016 season came and it wasn’t my best year. What also happened is I got sucked into online casinos. And playing 100 dollar rolls in online craps was a disaster.
Any money I won during the NFL season just went into the online casinos. And I knew at that point that I had no control. But I was resilient and would win the money back.
Spring of 2017, I was in about $30k in debt. Found a new job and rolled my 401k to an IRA. I had access to $160k... figured I would withdraw enough to pay off all my debt and just let the rest of the money sit. I hit a parlay in January that year and when I withdrew the money, I was paid in Bitcoin.
Long story short, that summer I was making tens of thousands of dollars from alt coins I bought in the spring. I made about $25k in Ethereum and about $12k in Litecoin. Also made money in bitcoin. I’d win money playing roulette, withdraw the funds into my bitcoin account and I’d let it stay there for a few days and make even more money.
I was playing online roulette for an entire summer. I’d buy bitcoin and send it to my offshore account to gamble on Roulette. Roulette, I knew how the wheel spun. I’d deposit $1,000 and would make between 5-6K, do a withdrawal to then cancel it 2 minutes later. This vicious cycle went on until the 2017 NFL season. Which was my best football season yet.
By November, I had made about 35k in NFL betting but lost all of it, and the rest of my IRA (remember that $160k???). Where to go... what to do? I applied for another personal loan. To consolidate all my debt and got a $65k loan. That weekend, thanksgiving weekend, I made another $14k on the NFL games. And then a month later I was broke again. “I’ll get another massive loan, and then I’m done”
Only this time, my loan was for only $20k because I had so much debt. A mortgage and about $125k of debt on top of it.
I called my old boss and cried like a little bitch to her, asking her for a bailout. Asked her to give me a loan of $50k. That in 2 years I’d pay her back. She probably has a net worth of $20-30 million. She said no. And I couldn’t believe it. She said I was like a son to her and she wouldn’t help me get out of debt?????
January 18, I got on a plane to go see my wife who was visiting her family (she still doesn’t know anything yet) and the plane had SO MUCH TURBULENCe, I was praying for a crash. I did not want to deal with the consequences of my actions.
January 25, my wife confronted me and I had no more answers. No more lies to tell. I was done, finished. I had to tell her the truth. She then told my parents everything and then I had to tell them what I had done. Seeing the look on my parents’ face, two people who didn’t gambled at all. Blue collar workers who couldn’t fathom the money I made, let alone the money I gambled away and the debt I had. Sent them home crying. Couldn’t believe their son, their most successful child, had done this to himself.
And then My wife had said some of the most vile shit to me. And I deserved it. We were up until 1-2 AM but then she had to get some rest because she had work. She went to work the next day and I had the day to reflect on what I had done. Made a decision at that point, whether she stays or goes, that I need to stop gambling. Besides not having money to gamble, I needed more than that to stop gambling.
I found gamblers anonymous. I just googled “how to stop gambling” and that showed up. Told my wife I would start going to GA. She didn’t care. She made her decision to leave. January 29th, I went to my first GA meeting and my wife that day, told her mother what happened. She had already told her dad, but now she told her mother. And her mother pleaded with her to give me another chance. He can change. I used to say people don’t change. They never change. They show you who they are... believe them.
My wife cancelled her plane ticket and said: ok. One last chance.
Here we are. Two years later. Haven’t gambled. No longer smoke. We have a child of our own now. Hired a law firm to help me settle my debts. Had my debt cut down from $146k to $90k. Paid that law firm about $20-22k in fees. In two years. Every penny I made went to pay off my debt as quickly as I could. Hindsight, I would have gone a different way in paying off my debts. But I was desperate and did whatever my wife said to do.
Doing the math recently, I must’ve lost $400k-$500k in about 15 months. I did more damage in 15 months than some people do in 15 years. The moral of this story: I was wrong. People CAN change. GA saved my life. It has helped me and so many other people. If you believe you have a gambling problem and want to stop gambling, you CAN. Find a gamblers anonymous near you. Go to a meeting. It’ll change your life. It changed mine.
Peace and love. Peace and love.

Bitcoins hashrate & difficulty levels have been on an epic bull run

A year ago on Aug 24 2017, the mining difficulty and hash rate was considered to be off the charts high. The network was battle tested for over 8 years and the hashpower just kept increasing nearly the whole time. 1 year ago the the idea of becoming a profitable miner required a seriously major investment...I recall thinking that "this hash rate rate can't possibly continue to climb at this rate, it MUST be near the max."
3 days ago was Aug 24 2018...a full year later and the Bitcoin mining difficulty increased to 6,727,225,469,722....One year earlier it was 888,171,856,257 you see how many times it doubled in the last year? The predicted increase for the next adjustment is 7.1%!!
Now a 7.1% increase of last years difficulty level is considered a lot, but 7.1% of the current level is like adding 50% to what it was a year ago. That's hard to comprehend it's so high, and this is a bear market, right? Who could be investing so heavily into mining?
The power of this compounding growth is simply incredible....The money going into large mega scale Bitcoin mining is unfathomabley huge...Is there estimates or data regarding how much fiat is being invested into mining? How much fiat is going into R&D of state of the art tiny nanometer ASICs?
If mining hashpower was not a relevant metric for Bitcoin price valuation a year ago, it most certainly is today and is becoming more and more relevant every 2 weeks. We are talking serious investment.
To put this in perspective the last 2 difficulty increases alone, are very near equal to the entire difficulty of the network this time last year!! That's over 8.5 years of Bitcoin mining hashpower growth in just 4 weeks.
Holy F'n Sh1t! Miners and venture capital have been very very busy and surprisingly it's not so overt.
At this rate it will double in 3 months...would that happen in a bear market? To me this is some of the most bullish data available. I also live in Quebec and in the last few months it's become known the miners are here in a big way.
This site is an excellent tool to reference the hashpower and difficulty over time. (There are several good sites, I just like this one) https://bitcoinwisdom.com/bitcoin/difficulty

This is embarrassing but I'll tell my story if it prevents someone else from getting swindled out of their bitcoin...

Originally posted in scams but was encouraged to post here, too:
Throwaway account for reasons
Before I begin... fuck you, Shane, for draining my entire account at Coinbase. I deserve it for being as dumb as I was, but still you stole from an unsuspecting person who recently quit his job and was relying on cashing out his bitcoin to pay for living expenses while he looks for a job. I hope you enjoy spending it, you snatch.
Here's the story...
Yesterday, I tried selling my bitcoin using the Coinbase app, which I've done several times before, but it was telling me I had to validate my identity at a special site (coinbase .com/ssn) that I could only view and fill out on a desktop. So, I log into my account from my desktop and after several unsuccessful attempts to validate my address (first it says I need to use a permanent residential address, and then when I do it says there is a problem validating my address) it tells me that I only have one more chance to successfully validate or it will lock my account.
Here's where the fuckery begins...
After being unable to contact Coinbase via phone within my account I google their phone number and one of the first results you see is a page with what I thought was their number and I call it. Shane picks up the phone, I confirm that he is with Coinbase and I tell him about my problem selling bitcoin on the app. He says he will look into it, puts me on hold with shitty elevator music to add to the effect of being legit, and eventually comes back to tell me that there is a problem with the system and the only way to cash out my bitcoin is to transfer it to their mining outfit called, Coinbase Mining, of course. I'm trying to sell before the bitcoin price drops too far below $3,500. So, I bite, and he guides me through setting up an account at the following site:
http://mining -coinbase.usa.cc
After walking me through an account setup and enrolling me in their bullshit I send my bitcoin to the address. (It's a pretty snazzy website so I don't question it. Looks legit af!) After Shane is done fucking me, he explains that as soon as Coinbase processes the transaction my bitcoin will show up in my account and then I can withdraw it to my bank account. I'm looking for a cigarette at this point in time, so I thank Shane for his help and he says if I need anything to call the same number and ask for him. I feel great... until I get off the phone... and then it hits me, "Oh fuck! That bitcoin is fucking gonzo!" I frantically go back to my computer and try to log back in to the bullshit Coinbase mining website... nope, login and password mismatch. I call back, but again, nope, they've blocked my number.
Yesterday was denial. Today is anger.
Called this morning using another number and asked for Shane. Surprisingly, Nick (fuck you, too) put me in touch with him. I asked him to refund my money and he hung up on me.
Fuck me... swindled
Broke af and bitter now. I hope my experience can help someone avoid being robbed by these clowns in the future.
TLDR - Coinbase Mining is a bullshit front for a huge bitcoin scam, I fell for it, and lost all my bitcoin. Don't be like me. Be patient with your bitcoin.
Edit: Thank you everyone for your kind words and feedback. I changed the formatting of the phone number in the two comments below based on your suggestions to help prevent someone else from calling the number should this page show up in search results.
Edit #2: I was just notified that Coinbase has implemented a live telephone support number since I originally posted this. Here is the info:
Live phone support: +1 (888) 908-7930 https://twitter.com/coinbase/status/910534103073615873
I don't know if my post had anything to do with this, but if it did it shows the power of Reddit. Now if only they will refund my money and unlock my account! :)

Decred Journal – July 2018

Note: you can read this on Medium, GitHub or old Reddit to view all the links

Development

dcrd: Several steps towards multipeer downloads completed: an optimization to use in-memory block index and a new 1337 chain view. Maintenance: improved test coverage, upgrading dependency management system and preparing for the upcoming Go 1.11 release.
dcrwallet: A big change introducing optional privacy-preserving SPV sync mode was merged. In this mode dcrwallet does not download the full blockchain but only gets the "filters", uses them to determine which blocks it needs and fetches them from random nodes on the network. This has on-disk footprint of 300-400 MB and sync time of minutes, compared to ~3.4 GB and sync time of hours for full sync (these are rough estimates).
jy-p: the server side of SPV (in dcrd) was deployed in v1.2.0, the client side of SPV (in dcrwallet) is in our next release, v1.3.0. Still some minor bugs in SPV that are being worked out. There will be an update to add the latest features from BIP 157/158 in the next few months. SPV will be optional in v1.3.0, but it will become the default after we get a proper header commitment for it (#general)
Decrediton: besides regular bugfixes and design improvements, several components are being developed in parallel like SPV mode, Politeia integration and Trezor support.
Politeia: testing started on mainnet, thanks to everyone who is participating. A lot of testing, bugfixing and polishing is happening in preparation for full mainnet launch. There are also a few missing features to be added before launch, e.g. capacity to edit a proposal and versioning for that, discussion to remain open once voting starts. Decrediton integration is moving forward, check out this video for a demo and this meta issue for the full checklist.
Trezor: Decrediton integration of initial Trezor support is in progress and there is a demo.
Android: app design version 2.0 completed.
dcrdata: development of several chart visualizations was completed and is awaiting deployment. Specifically, voting agendas and historic charts are merged while ticket pool visualization is in testing.
atomicswap: @glendc is seeking reviews of his Ethereum support pull request.
Dev activity stats for July: 252 active PRs, 220 master commits, 34,754 added and 12,847 deleted lines spread across 6 repositories. Contributions came from 6-10 developers per repository. (chart)

Network

Hashrate: the month started at 40.5 and ended at 51.6 PH/s, with a low of 33.3 and a new all time high of 68.4 PH/s. F2Pool is leading with 40-45%, followed by the new BeePool at 15-25% and coinmine.pl at 18-23%.
Staking: 30-day average ticket price is 92.6 DCR (-2.1). The price started the month at 94.6 and quickly retreated to month's low of 85 until 1,860 tickets were bought within a single period (versus target 720). This pushed the pool of tickets to 41,970 (2.5% above target), which in turn caused 10 price increases in a row to the month's high of 100.4. This was the highest ticket price seen on the new ticket price algorithm which has been in effect since Jul 2017. Second half of the month there was unusually low volatility between 92 and 94 DCR per ticket. Locked DCR held between 3.75 and 3.87 million or 46.6-48.0% of supply (+0.1% from previous peak).
Nodes: there are 212 public listening and 216 normal nodes per dcred.eu. Version distribution: 67% on v1.2.0 (+10%), 24% on v1.1.2 (-1%), 7% on v1.1.0 (-7%). Node count data is not perfect but we can see the steady trend of upgrading to v1.2.0. This version of dcrd is notable for serving compact filters. The increased count of such full nodes allows the developers to test SPV client mode in preparations for the upcoming v1.3.0 release.

ASICs

Obelisk posted three updates in July. For the most recent daily updates join their Discord.
New miner from iBeLink: DSM7T hashes Blake256 at 7 TH/s or Blake2b at 3.5 TH/s, consumes 2,100 W and costs $3,800, shipping Aug 5-10.
There were also speculations about the mysterious Pangolin Whatsminer DCR with the speed of 44 TH/s at 2,200 W and the cost of $3,888, shipping November. If you know more about it please share with us in #pow-mining channel.

Integrations

Meet new stake pool: dcrpool.ibitlin.com has 1% fees and is hosted by @life.
An interesting detail about decredbrasil.com stake pool was posted in chat:
emiliomann: stakebrasil is one of the pools with the lowest number of missed and expired tickets. It was one of the first and has a smaller percentage than the most recent ones who haven’t had the time to do so. (...) The Brazilian pool should be the one with the more servers spread around the world: 6 to decrease the latency. This is to explain to you why the [pool fee] rate of 5% (currently around 0.06 DCR) on the reward is also one of the highest. girino: 8 voting wallets now. I just finished setting up a new one yesterday. All of them in different datacenters, 3 in europe, 3 in north america, 1 in brazil and one in asia. We also have 3 more servers, 1 for the front end, one for "stats" and one for dcrdata. (#general)
On the mining side, Luxor started a new set of pool servers inside mainland China, while zpool has enabled Decred mining.
StatX announced Decred integration into their live dashboard and public chat.
Decred was added to Satowallet with BTC and ETH trading pairs. Caution: do your best to understand the security model before using any wallet software.

Adoption

VotoLegal update:
Marina Silva is the first presidential candidate in Brazil using blockchain to keep all their electoral donations transparent and traceable. VotoLegal uses Decred technology, awesome use case! (reddit)
The story was covered by criptonoticias.com (translated) and livecoins.com.br (translated), the latter received hundreds of upvotes and comments on brasil.
On the OTC trading front, @i2Rav from i2trading reports:
We continue to see institutional interest in DCR. Large block buyers love the concept of staking as a way to earn additional income and appreciate the stakeholder rights it affords them. Likening a DCR investment to an activist shareholdebondholder gives these institutions some comfort while dipping their toes into a burgeoning new asset class.

Marketing

Targeted advertising reports released for June and July. As usual, reach @timhebel for full versions.
Big news in June: Facebook reversed their policy on banning crypto ads. ICO ads are still banned, but we should be OK. My team filled out the appeal today, so we should hopefully hear something within a few days. (u/timhebel on reddit)
After couple weeks Facebook finally responded to the appeal and the next step is to verify the domain name via DNS.
A pack of Stakey Telegram stickers is now available. Have fun!

Markets

In July DCR was trading in USD 56-76 and BTC 0.0072-0.0109 range. A recovery started after a volume boost of up to $10.5 m on Fex around Jul 13, but once Bitcoin headed towards USD ~8,000 DCR declined along with most altcoins.
WalletInvestor posted a prediction on dcrtrader.
Decred was noticed in top 10 mineable coins on coinmarketcap.com.

Valuation of BTCP in perspective

Is Bitcoin Private just another Zcash with a different name? No, first of all it has ZCL's freedom from founders tax, but most of all it brings Zcash's key features to the very latest Bitcoin 0.16 (later 0.17) code and eco-system. This will be very unique feature and a reason to exist in itself! Currently, BTCP is being traded at $5.96. If the BTCP coinbase should be valued by Zcash's $880 285 594 market cap, then BTCP would currently have a comparable bear-market price of only $42.93.
 
What about other Bitcoin forks? Bitcoin Private "followed" a few others (though not comparable, since BTCP has a lot more active development) that became quite successful in the trading market, but completely lacks all kinds of privacy.
 
The USP of Bitcoin Cash is using larger blocks than 1MB in a Bitcoin. Bitcoin Private has absorbed this feature, in addition to all other features Bitcoin Private will be offering on top of it. Currently, BTCP is being traded at $5.96. If the BTCP coinbase should be valued by Bitcoin Cash's $13 009 341 909 market cap, BTCP would currently have a comparable bear-market price of only $634.47.
 
The USP of Bitcoin Gold is being a decentralized Bitcoin based on GPU-mining. Bitcoin Private has absorbed this feature, in addition to be put on top of all other features Bitcoin Private will be offering on top of it. Currently, BTCP is being traded at $5.96. If the BTCP coinbase should be valued by Bitcoin Gold's $465 414 261 market cap, BTCP would currently have a bear-market price of only $22.70.
 
But there are other non-zkSNARKs "privacy coins" that uses various obfuscations techniques (aren't they all proven to be not 100% safe?). Bitcoin Private will eat most of these obfuscation features as a complement to proper shielded transactions in Q4, when Dandelion/TOetc is being implemented.
Monero's $1 994 886 372 market cap equals to a bear-market BTCP price of only: $97.29
Dash's $1 773 276 834 market cap equals to a bear-market BTCP price of only: $86.48
Verge's $337 888 842 market cap equals to a bear-market BTCP price of only: $16.48
 
One thing you notice a lot these days, are troll-minions rushing in on all social media with their relatively new accounts, pointing out how ZCL is traded for a higher price than BTCP (so is BTC BTW ;-) ).
 
A few things you should keep in mind regarding ZCL:
  1. ZCL Is a dead-end shit-coin that is only used for auto-switched Equihash mining combined with auto-trading (dumping) on pools like Miningpoolhub.
  2. It has a normal trading price of, what, ~8 dollars?
  3. It is currently being pumped to $14.48
 
 
So no, ZCL is not worth more than BTCP, not even in current pump-mode!
 
The BTCP circulating supply used for these calculation: 20 504 228
 
BTW, I think it's interesting that BTCP currently has $531 K worth of trading volume while trading at only a $5.96 price. Doesn't this mean that twice as many BTCP coins are being bought daily now than during ATH in late April?

A word about Bitcoin's fiat-denominated price, if I may. 88888

From an outsider's perspective, what Bitcoin price target does the Bitcoin community believe in? $1,000 per coin? $10,000 per coin? $100,000 per coin? Whatever it may be, let us do our part to help make it more well-defined in order to establish clearer consensus.
As such, what clear set of reasons can we agree on, focus on, and promote in order to most beneficially educate and shape the behavior of supply and demand acting in the market?
In my opinion, a clear, simple, and easily repeatable case exists for pricing Bitcoin similarly to gold. Bitcoin is above and beyond gold in many respects, but the bitcoin/gold comparison is an easy anchor point from which to reasonably discuss Bitcoin as a mulltiple trillion dollar market-cap player.
Reasoning:
  1. Today, I can more easily purchase, store, and transfer Bitcoin than I can gold.
  2. While gold's historical role as a store of value is impressive and well-established, Bitcoin is more scarce than gold. Bitcoin is more divisible than gold. Bitcoin is more easy to transport than gold. Bitcoin is more verifiable than gold. And, in terms of its trans-continental transactability, Bitcoin-the-network is more durable than gold-the-network.
  3. In 2013, about $320 million of gold was mined per day. Presently, about 3600 bitcoins are mined each day. In terms of new money flow, this suggests that a base price of about $88,888 per bitcoin can be supported, if Bitcoin were valued similarly to gold. Interestingly, $88,888 per bitcoin equates to a Bitcoin market cap of only $1.2 trillion (counting 21 million bitcoins), whereas the total market cap of all 6 billion ounces of gold estimated to be in circulation is currently around $7.2 trillion. This suggests, in terms of overall supply, that a price of about $340,000 per bitcoin can be supported, if Bitcoin were valued similarly to gold.
Let us agree on Bitcoin's superiority to gold and make publicly known our unified, well-reasoned base target price of $88,888 per bitcoin.

This is embarrassing but I'll tell my story if it prevents someone else from getting swindled out of their bitcoin...

Throwaway account for reasons
Before I begin... fuck you, Shane, for draining my entire account at Coinbase. I deserve it for being as dumb as I was, but still you stole from an unsuspecting person who recently quit his job and was relying on cashing out his bitcoin to pay for living expenses while he looks for a new job. I hope you enjoy spending it, you snatch.
Here's the story...
Yesterday, I tried selling my bitcoin using the Coinbase app, which I've done several times before, but it was telling me I had to validate my identity at a special site (coinbase .com/ssn) that I could only view and fill out on a desktop. So, I log into my account from my desktop and after several unsuccessful attempts to validate my address (first it says I need to use a permanent residential address, and then when I do it says there is a problem validating my address) it tells me that I only have one more chance to successfully validate or it will lock my account.
Here's where the fuckery begins...
After being unable to contact Coinbase via phone within my account I google their phone number and one of the first results you see is a page with what I thought was their number and I call it. Shane picks up the phone, I confirm that he is with Coinbase and I tell him about my problem selling bitcoin on the app. He says he will look into it, puts me on hold with shitty elevator music to add to the effect of being legit, and eventually comes back to tell me that there is a problem with the system and the only way to cash out my bitcoin is to transfer it to their mining outfit called, Coinbase Mining, of course. I'm trying to sell before the bitcoin price drops too far below $3,500. So, I bite, and he guides me through setting up an account at the following site:
http://mining -coinbase.usa.cc
After walking me through an account setup and enrolling me in their bullshit I send my bitcoin to the address. (It's a pretty snazzy website so I don't question it. Looks legit af!) After Shane is done fucking me, he explains that as soon as Coinbase processes the transaction my bitcoin will show up in my account and then I can withdraw it to my bank account. I'm looking for a cigarette at this point in time, so I thank Shane for his help and he says if I need anything to call the same number and ask for him. I feel great... until I get off the phone... and then it hits me, "Oh fuck! That bitcoin is fucking gonzo!" I frantically go back to my computer and try to log back in to the bullshit Coinbase mining website... nope, login and password mismatch. I call back, but again, nope, they've blocked my number.
Yesterday was denial. Today is anger.
Called this morning using another number and asked for Shane. Surprisingly, Nick (fuck you, too) put me in touch with him. I asked him to refund my money and he hung up on me.
Fuck me... swindled
Broke af and bitter now. I'm pretty fucking silly sometimes so I plan on calling these fuckers every day till the end of time until they send me back my bitcoins. Either that or pay them a surprise visit. This is the information age and I'm going to dedicate ALL my free time... this is now my full time job... to preventing these fuckers from ever doing this to anyone else.
TLDR - Coinbase Mining is a bullshit front for a huge bitcoin scam, I fell for it, and lost all my bitcoin. Don't be like me. Be patient with your bitcoin.
Edit: I was just notified that Coinbase has implemented a live telephone support number since I originally posted this. Here is the info:
Live phone support: +1 (888) 908-7930 https://twitter.com/coinbase/status/910534103073615873
I don't know if my post had anything to do with this, but if it did it shows the power of Reddit. Now if only they will refund my money and unlock my account! :)

Student’s Coin & Technology

bitJob’s technology merges the benefits of micro-gigs and freelancer-centric bidding sites with Ethereum Blockchain, creating the first Hybrid Blockchain Project that allows for peer-to-peer connection with employers and students.

Welcome to the STU Ecosystem

Student tokens, also known as STU, are based on Ethereum Blockchain and are used to Reward & Make payments inside the bitJob app. STU tokens can be earned on the platform or purchased on exchanges.

The purpose of this hybrid model was to speed up and improve the adoption of the idea during the initial crowdfunding phase and serve as a catalyst for user acquisition during the platform development phase. Although a decentralized paradigm is the ultimate goal, slow adoption of the blockchain technology should be temporarily substituted by solutions that are familiar to the average internet user. Internet users today expect online services to be fast, with intuitive interfaces that are accessible via mobile devices. This dictates our approach, which provides these two technologies, simultaneously. With the adoption of the platform and new developments in blockchain technology users can seamlessly switch to decentralized solutions. Once users show familiarity with the platform by way of satisfactory adoption, they will be encouraged to interact through the blockchain component, which will allow them to pay for services with cryptocurrency and earn income through the usage of the crypto economy
bitJob will facilitate the provision of freelancing services through an online platform. Participants who offer a service (most often one which can be delivered online) will register using the system (as ‘service providers’) and offer their availability to do work in a way which is categorized by the platform. Participants who seek certain services will register as ‘service consumers’ and will either contact ‘service providers’ through the search function or will enter a request for services. Bidding on services and setting requests for services will give participants the ability to interact and find mutual agreements regardless to what demand and supply are available. The platform will provide mechanisms to ensure that, upon agreement, sufficient money is kept in escrow, so that the service provider is always paid, unless, of course, there are issues with their provision of service, in which case the platform will offer conflict resolution methods. Users will be able to rate each other, so frivolous or unreasonable ratings will not have the ability to proliferate for any significant length of time. Users, on the ‘service providers’ end, who collect negative ratings, may be subjected to higher fees. The Company business model is based on generating revenue through fees applied to both service providers and service consumers (not including students).
bitJob HYBRID MarketPlace Flowchart bitJob User Signup & Authenticity Process The following flowchart represents our vision for the bitJob HYBRID architecture for our marketplace, which will be handled both by centralized servers (using fiat traditional currency payment method) and decentralized infrastructure (infrastructure (registration & identity, fees, distribution for affiliates, etc’). The Chart below shows bitJob’s formal Token (STU), and the allocation methods for the token holders & affiliates. More explanation about the STU token and its utility can be found in Section 3 (STU).
Using the Ethereum protocol allowed us to build this great application, and to remove the need to “blindly trust” server administrators. Thanks to its transparent properties, we now have a strong authentication, identification, better verifiability and micro-transactions for our payments and affiliates fees distribution. In the sketch below, we have decided to clarify the user sign-up process which has different aspects of authentications. bitJob Student (Identify Requester) - At this stage, the requester (student) will fill in the needed data at the bitJob UI application. The UI application will make sure the Student is a legitimate entity by analyzing the supplied data as a proof of ownership. bitJob User UI Application - a proof of identify will be sent from the UI Application to the student members list storage (this will be the student ID number). The storage will then return the UI Application an approval for the authenticated data.
We built a fantastic affiliate program that will strengthen the relationship between bitJob and the students: students’ unions will receive a commission from each transaction their students engage in. We have launched pilot agreements with leading student associations in Israel, in addition to a number of employers who were more than happy to participate. We are also negotiating with several leading job search engines to ensure a continuous flow of quality jobs. Student unions around the world constantly engage in programs for professional internships with leading employers. In order to get as many students as possible to our marketplace, we created the ultimate incentive with our affiliate program. It’s a win-win setup that will play a critical part in bitJob’s success. Our focus on small online student jobs will attract players in the field of employee recruitment who are in pursuit of the next generation.
In initial phase of this project, we were asked why we want to use blockchain technology for something that doesn’t obviously benefit from using the technology. Although the benefits are not instantly visible, they are quite convincing when they are spelled out.
When money is moved between accounts using traditional methods, it can cost anywhere between 2% to 10% of the transaction amount. The cost of moving money on the blockchain can be in the vicinity of 0.01%. If someone could capture the difference between the current cost of settling transactions and the blockchain cost, the transfer of $1 million in revenue would produce between $20,000 and $100,000 in savings just by switching to blockchain. In certain countries, those transaction fees might be even higher, and it can take several days to process them due to restrictions and local limitations—e.g., PayPal is not offered everywhere, and in some areas, transactions are held for many days before they appear in the recipient account. In the very near future, blockchain technologies will be replacing existing client server architectures. By having already incorporated blockchain into our platform, we can take advantage of new ideas and trends rapidly, while other providers will just be starting to look into solutions in that space. A cryptocurrency crowdfunding campaign is possible when building a decentralized system. Additional funding can be obtained through communities associated with cryptocurrencies. Although it’s not implemented in the STU Token model, the concept of mining is strictly related to the blockchain. Through the mining process, with either proof of stake or proof of work, new coins can be created and distributed to the contributing community. As mentioned, this is not part of the current STU token model but will be considered in the future and can be deployed upon additional token symbol creation. There is no need to create a legal entity if someone wants to reach markets in other countries. The platform can function in any country without a legal presence, as cryptocurrencies have no such regulations or requirements. There is no need for bitJob to spend money on hardware, infrastructure, or tech staff. Platforms such as Ethereum offer said infrastructure, which has minimal cost only when used. Any new technological advances within the Ethereum community will be available to the platform as soon as they are created. It would be impossible for a business that facilitates freelance
bitJob will partner up with certain external service providers to enable users to purchase their services with STU tokens.
• Affiliates sending referrals will be offered commission in STU tokens.
• Users will be able to form groups on the platform for collaboration and collective engagement.
• Evangelists: Receive fees for introducing bitJob to new educational organizations. This is part of the Global ambassadors program the company will build for its first-year expansion.
• A registration STU gift will be given to every new registrant on the platform, as a promotional registration bonus.
• Developers: will be able to form groups on the platform for collaboration and collective engagement.
The bitJob (STU) Token is a token on the Ethereum platform. Its design follows widely adopted token implementation standards. This makes the token easy to manage using existing solutions, including the Ethereum Wallet.
• Maximum number of tokens created during crowdfunding campaign: 200,000,000 (100%)
• Sending 1 Ether to the bitJob account will create Approx. 888 STU. (Based on Ether price during the preparation of this document). •
• Tokens will be transferable once the crowdfunding is successfully completed.
• The amount of STU coins per 1 Ether might vary due to movement in Ether price. The final values will be determined at the beginning of Emission day and can also be modified during the sale. According to the Terms & Agreements that will be published on our CrowdFund page.
• The bitJob token (STU) crowdfunding campaign emission will be distributed in the following way:
• Some of the reserved marketing tokens will be used for bounties paid for the following marketing campaigns: translation and forum, moderators, newsletter subscriptions, Bitcoin Talk signatures, Twitter campaigns, Facebook likes, and blog posts.
• More details about our bounty campaign will be given on our social media or through our blog posts on Medium.
• Our Presale & ICO Terms & Conditions will be published prior to the events through our channels

This is embarrassing but I'll tell my story if it prevents someone else from getting swindled out of their bitcoin...

Originally posted in scams and btc but was encouraged to post here, too. If there is anyone involved with Coinbase that can help I could certainly use it:
Throwaway account for reasons
Before I begin... fuck you, Shane, for draining my entire account at Coinbase. I deserve it for being as dumb as I was, but still you stole from an unsuspecting person who recently quit his job and was relying on cashing out his bitcoin to pay for living expenses while he looks for a new job. I hope you enjoy spending it, you snatch.
Here's the story...
Yesterday, I tried selling my bitcoin using the Coinbase app, which I've done several times before, but it was telling me I had to validate my identity at a special site (coinbase .com/ssn) that I could only view and fill out on a desktop. So, I log into my account from my desktop and after several unsuccessful attempts to validate my address (first it says I need to use a permanent residential address, and then when I do it says there is a problem validating my address) it tells me that I only have one more chance to successfully validate or it will lock my account.
Here's where the fuckery begins...
After being unable to contact Coinbase via phone within my account I google their phone number and one of the first results you see is a page with what I thought was their number and I call it. Shane picks up the phone, I confirm that he is with Coinbase and I tell him about my problem selling bitcoin on the app. He says he will look into it, puts me on hold with shitty elevator music to add to the effect of being legit, and eventually comes back to tell me that there is a problem with the system and the only way to cash out my bitcoin is to transfer it to their mining outfit called, Coinbase Mining, of course. I'm trying to sell before the bitcoin price drops too far below $3,500. So, I bite, and he guides me through setting up an account at the following site:
http://mining -coinbase.usa.cc
After walking me through an account setup and enrolling me in their bullshit I send my bitcoin to the address. (It's a pretty snazzy website so I don't question it. Looks legit af!) After Shane is done fucking me, he explains that as soon as Coinbase processes the transaction my bitcoin will show up in my account and then I can withdraw it to my bank account. I'm looking for a cigarette at this point in time, so I thank Shane for his help and he says if I need anything to call the same number and ask for him. I feel great... until I get off the phone... and then it hits me, "Oh fuck! That bitcoin is fucking gonzo!" I frantically go back to my computer and try to log back in to the bullshit Coinbase mining website... nope, login and password mismatch. I call back, but again, nope, they've blocked my number.
Yesterday was denial. Today is anger.
Called this morning using another number and asked for Shane. Surprisingly, Nick (fuck you, too) put me in touch with him. I asked him to refund my money and he hung up on me.
Fuck me... swindled
Broke af and bitter now. I hope my experience can help someone avoid being robbed by these clowns in the future.
TLDR - Coinbase Mining is a bullshit front for a huge bitcoin scam, I fell for it, and lost all my bitcoin. Don't be like me. Be patient with your bitcoin.
Edit: I was just notified that Coinbase has implemented a live telephone support number since I originally posted this. Here is the info:
Live phone support: +1 (888) 908-7930 https://twitter.com/coinbase/status/910534103073615873
I don't know if my post had anything to do with this, but if it did it shows the power of Reddit. Now if only they will refund my money and unlock my account! :)

Main Components of APC Project

Main Components of APC Project

https://preview.redd.it/0emx0u83w4621.png?width=4167&format=png&auto=webp&s=bebd57fe98eb85c327a29023d877784a062a7c84

1st. Main component - Holding

The first main component is holding service. Handling fee dividend is the system to divide the 88% of total handling fee paid by traders to APC holders according to their holding ratio.
As an example, in case APX took USD 100,000 as handling fee for one business day, USD 88,000 will be paid to APC holders by their holding ratio the next business day. This dividend system implements every day.
The system to provide APC coin to traders who paid the handling fee for dealing. Providing APC amount is calculated instantly and set as equal to handling fee which a trader has paid.

2nd. Main component - Trading

2nd main component is Handling fee mining. It is the system to provide APC coin to traders who paid the handling fee for dealing. Providing APC amount is calculated instantly and set as equal to handling fee which a trader has paid. For example, in case trader pays Bitcoin 0.001 unit as handling fee, same value of APC is issued and provide to trader who paid Bitcoin 0.001 unit. APC’s first issue amount is 55% of total amount (488,888,888 coins) and rest of amount are provided to people who trade the cryptocurrency at APX as handling fee mining reward. For this reason, the total issue amount of APC will increase and APC holders ratios will dilute unless continue trading at APX. It’s the special feature of APX platform.
This system will lead to attract traders to join this platform and encourage traders to deal frequently. When the issued amount faces the total amount (888,888,888 coins), APC will not be provided anymore. According to our offer of this breakthrough service, we’ll enhance the attractiveness, transparency, safety and persistence of the APX trading platform.
The system to divide the 88% of total handling fee paid by traders to APC holders according to their holding ratio.

3rd. Main component – Debit card

Our third main component is issuing a Debit card. We cooperate with big payment providers such as Visa and issue APX branded original debit card. This debit card will be issued to APX account holders with a simple application. A card holder is able to use the debit service after transferring the cryptocurrency to their debit account on the APX platform. When a user transfers the cryptocurrency to their debit account, it is automatically exchange to fiat currency. After this process, card holders are able to shop over 40 million shops in 200 countries and withdraw local currency at over 2.3 million ATMs all over the world.
There are conditions for using debit cards. APX users can use payment and withdrawal services to debit cards as long as they hold 888 APC at the individual account in APX.
We cooperate with big payment providers and issue APX branded original debit card.

4th. Main component - Lending

The final of main component is a lending service. This service will be provided by cooperating with APF. Existing lending service is based on borrower’s credit situation. For this reason, some of people are not eligible to get a loan depending on various reasons; APF will offer them breakthrough lending services. APF will disburse loan whenever the client can provide major cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple as collateral. Disburse amount is depended on it’s cryptocurrency value. This service makes it possible to provide financial services to those who were not able to access it before.
