How can a TKEY messenger allow you to send funds anywhere in the world without commissions and in a matter of seconds?

How can a TKEY messenger allow you to send funds anywhere in the world without commissions and in a matter of seconds?

https://preview.redd.it/fnny8lcxse651.png?width=700&format=png&auto=webp&s=cbed2ff5216eb1dc813764d99f5b12dda17a37ab
Yesterday was the official release of the new flagship product — Tkey Messenger. Messenger is available in the browser and on desktops for the most popular systems Windows, macOS, and Linux. Soon, smartphone owners will be able to try out Tkey Messenger in action, the app will appear in the App Store and Google Play.
https://preview.redd.it/f4ca4g0nue651.png?width=1400&format=png&auto=webp&s=c857c896bf71771e3d01e0210f24da9a4fb68887
In the era of rapid communication and technology development, messengers have become our default products. We use them for business purposes, to communicate with friends and acquaintances — this has long been the norm. It would seem that why are other messengers created when there are many other instant messaging systems?
Today we will talk about what a Tkey Messenger is, what it can do today, what features will be included in it in the future, and most importantly, what we are creating It for and how we will develop it.

TKEY.ME

The abbreviated name of Tkey Messenger is tkey.me. First of all, TKEY-ME is a secure messenger with p2p audio and video calls, and in the future, a built-in digital wallet.
“Every day we communicate in messengers. We earn money at work. We make purchases and transfers. We are here to combine these processes in one application and make sending funds as easy as sending a message”

The Tkey Messenger as a new ecosystem

Do you think we are here to compete with other messengers? — No, there are a lot of great messengers. We are here to create our ecosystem and the internal market in it. Combine these processes in one application and make sending funds as easy as sending a message.
After all, we work in the field of FINTECH, cryptography, and blockchain, why not apply the best practices and knowledge in practice? Therefore, the TKEY Messenger should be considered for a large ecosystem.
This is a new payment segment that covers fast communication tools in combination with an internal payment system, a set of exchange practices, blockchain, cryptography, our own experience, and the experience of global companies.

How will the Tkey Messenger ecosystem work?

https://preview.redd.it/17bml1zpue651.png?width=1400&format=png&auto=webp&s=99ebd70745968452536546fb5a59841e8f3a9c52
Let’s start with the most important thing: money should be sent in a matter of seconds, regardless of the country of issue of the Bankcard and wherever you are.

Here is a simple example:

You or your relatives live abroad and you want to send funds quickly, for example, 2600 USD — you just open a chat with your loved one, send a message and 2600 USD in the same second become available on your loved one’s account.
https://preview.redd.it/nmz4ienrue651.png?width=697&format=png&auto=webp&s=c3902fc0df1ed2eba425c3f3db3eb8c40bc7a237
It turns out that you can exchange Tkeycoin for USD, EUR, or GBP in a matter of seconds, as well as instantly send them to any place in the world and without hidden fees, the exchange amount is immediately available on the screen.
Or you have Bitcoin, and the Recipient needs dollars — Tkey Messenger will take care of all the complex tasks, you will only need to send a message to make the payment.
Each completed payment will be processed through a digital payment system without Bank intervention. You can link your Bank card to automatically withdraw digital funds to your local currency.

Do you want to simplify payments even more?

Order a TKEY card, and it will automatically be linked to your Tkey Messenger account. Make payments online, make purchases in stores — it’s just as easy as you did before, only much more convenient, faster, and safer.
https://preview.redd.it/42f1dkktue651.png?width=1400&format=png&auto=webp&s=7305192230c379c0fe81d981208a8cef8a540a5c
The most important thing is that you can easily use digital assets in combination with Fiat currencies — just top up your account in messenger to start sending currency around the world.
“Moving money around the world should be as easy and cheap as sending a message. It doesn’t matter where you live, what you do, or how much you earn.”

Send TKEY or Bitcoin via message, has it become a reality?

In Tkey Messenger, you will be able to quickly send digital currency using a message. You can not specify a public address, but send a digital currency using a message.
Instantly send funds to friends or relatives anywhere in the world. No Bank, no problems, no hidden fees.

Top up your mobile phone or pay for the Internet?

The usual payments, such as the Internet or mobile payments, will certainly be available, because if we can transfer pounds from England to Canada in a matter of seconds, and the recipient will receive dollars, why can’t we make a payment for the Internet? “Of course you can.

Transfer funds by a nickname

You don’t need to know the recipient’s account, just send funds by their nickname to the Tkey Messenger, and the funds will arrive within a few seconds. Fast, convenient, and safe.

What do we get in the future when using a Tkey Messenger?

We get an ideal payment system with instant transactions, fast access to various currencies, including digital, instant international payments, a huge platform for business, a marketplace with trusted sellers, secure transactions, while fast communication, p2p calls, and video communication. Not to mention various chips, in the format: cashback, savings account, invest. products, etc.
  • International transfers without Commission and in seconds;
  • Instant account opening — just create an account to get access to payments;
  • Access to funds 24/7/365 wherever you are.
  • Multi-currency wallet — you can use both digital currencies and classic currencies, such as the pound, euro, and dollar.
  • Payment in digital currency anywhere in the world.
  • Save time and money.

How is this possible, you say?

More than real, we will answer. At the very beginning of the project, we planned to create a marketplace, and then finalized the concept with NFC payments in TkeyPay. Smoothly, all this develops into a single system, which will be merged into a Tkey Messenger.
The Tkey Messenger is convenient and secure, payment system, and marketplace. The entire financial industry is in your hands-in your smartphone.
https://preview.redd.it/ullvuelexe651.png?width=1001&format=png&auto=webp&s=ef883fa9de067b885138a231069ddc3c0414c7d3
The mobile Finance industry is developing rapidly against the backdrop of a growing number of Internet users and the increasing role of smartphones in modern life. Today, the mobile device market attracts about 2 billion people, who remain passive players in financial markets.
With the Tkey Messenger access, you always get access to instant Finance, shopping, and the nice things you want to get here and now. In practice, it has turned out that we can often forget the keys to the apartment, rather than the phone, so your finances will always be with you.

Join the global Tkey Messenger system right now

Release 1.0.0 is available in the web version and for Windows, macOS, and Linux operating systems, and shortly on your mobile devices.

Current functionality of Tkey Messenger 1.0.0

The Tkey Messenger version 1.0.0 is the core that opens up new features that we discussed above, payments, and more. Now it is a convenient and stylish messenger with an intuitive design, instant messaging, and secure audio and video communication.

The P2P audio and video calls in a Tkey Messenger

When creating the first version, we focused on high-quality video and audio communication. Now you can easily call by video and be sure that you will get a high-quality video stream, as well as the absence of restrictions from third parties because the connection is carried out on the principle of p2p.
Audio and video calls are made in p2p mode, so there is no recording of calls at all.
https://preview.redd.it/lyrnkfhgxe651.png?width=1384&format=png&auto=webp&s=fb0c93ca45fa6bd4f65c77f64c81b88b906e904a
You can chat with friends and colleagues around the world for free, and excellent audio and video quality will only positively affect the quality of your conversation.

Calls in the web version

The web version of Tkey Messenger is available at → http://web.tkey.me/. The web version has full call functionality, so you can easily call through it, both via video and audio.
Video calls are available with the “Share” function, you can easily “share” your screen for the interlocutor and show what is happening on it. This function can be used for presentations or training events.
Screen Sharing is a demonstration and broadcast of the screen. “Share” your screen for the interlocutor and show what is happening on it.
https://preview.redd.it/x5h6au9ixe651.png?width=459&format=png&auto=webp&s=9b71b9148b17b55636c5615cbf7d6535cc78aa56

Group video and audio calls for up to 50 people

In the web version, you can launch a group video call. In the chat, tap the “handset” icon — the call will be sent to all participants in the chat, so all participants in the group chat can hold a video conference of up to 50 people. The user can turn on the camera and not turn it on, but simply participate in a video conference via audio.
On average, messengers that support the function of video calls in high quality, hold a video stream of no more than 8–10 people. In a Tkey Messenger, group conferences support up to 50 people. Soon-public online broadcasts and streams.
On the call page, you can conveniently distribute the Windows of the connected video stream.
https://preview.redd.it/qf85k37kxe651.png?width=744&format=png&auto=webp&s=8074a48fca7ea492376460d5c15f1de27722f7ea

Unlimited private group chats

The first version only supports private chats and group chats. Group chats are also completely private, so there is no “Share” function, only the chat participant can invite another participant to the group chat.
Create your thematic chats. Work. Family. Friends. Be the first while we develop. Soon-public channels and chats.
Anyone can start an audio or video call, and the notification goes through all participants. Switching to audio or video mode can be switched right at the moment of the call.
As we have already mentioned, group chats are completely private. You can make video and audio calls, send messages, and invite other participants.
To invite a new chat participant, any user can invite another user to a group chat. To do this, click on the “three points” menu icon.

https://preview.redd.it/cyfuh6snxe651.png?width=428&format=png&auto=webp&s=ee38ed7f20fed0bcb576279a6701397cd777e913
Next, enter the nickname of the participant you want to invite to the group chat in the search.

https://preview.redd.it/v7pltoppxe651.png?width=367&format=png&auto=webp&s=71d71bb795b312b4607d2033eee4c3a29f3b7500

Deleting information in group chats

Each participant, when they click the “Exit and delete” button, deletes messages and information from the chat on their side.
In group chats, all information is deleted by the last person to leave the group chat. After deleting-all messages, media, photos, and other data that were in this chat are automatically deleted. If all participants leave the group chat, it will be automatically deleted, and all information published in the group chat will also be deleted.

The chat between the two parties

This is a classic private chat between two participants, instant messaging, sending media.
The rights of the participants are equal. Any chat participant can delete the entire chat. after deleting all messages, media, photos, and other data that was in this chat, it is automatically deleted.

Help! Using BTC to Exchange CAD-USD as Bitcoin Noob, Safely, and Without Large Fees. Fianceé Stuck in Venezuela With No Options

Hope this is the right subreddit for this, Title says it all, anyone willing to help me figure out which options there are for doing this is hugely appreciated!!! Am in a complex situation and extremely concerned for my Venezuelan fiancée whom I met at University but had to return to home country recently and is now stuck. As borders close from COVID-19, political tensions rise, along with hyperinflation, it looks like I will have to be exchanging currrency often. Banks and direct transfer aren't really an option, fees are massive (>=5%) if it is even a possibility, PayPal is similar and I am morally against using these institutions.
As someone with little experience, and only a theoretical knowledge of crypto currency, I wouldn't know how to start. I am hugely interested in using decentralized currency along with the Freedom from financial institutions getting away with whatever they want. I really would greatly appreciate learning what options exist that are safe and allow me to have control over my own Bitcoin wallet where I am not putting myself at a huge privacy or scam risk, as I know there are so many shady exchanges out there. I have a powerful PC,(i7 9700k, RTX 2080ti, 32GB DDR4, 1TB M.2 SSD, 6TB HDD) running Windows 10, and just installed Debian. Also have rooted OnePlus 7 Pro running Android Q beta. Thanks for reading and any knowledge shared in advance!

Please recommend me a Seedbox

Hello. I'm seeking seedbox recommendations to help bootstrap the swarm on BioTorrents.de, a torrent tracker for biological sequence and medical imaging data. Thanks for any advice you can provide.
Are you OK with direct message offers from vendors?
Yes, but only to discuss tax-deductible donations of server time on behalf of BosLab, the 501c3 community biology lab where BioTorrents.de originated.
What are your main reasons for getting a seedbox?
I'm in the process of launching a semi-private science tracker for genomic and medical data, and would like to seed as much content on as fast connection as I can afford. I'm currently seeding from two residential locations.
Do you have any specific requirements?
I'm seeking a 1 Gbps uplink with as much storage and monthly transfer capacity as can be had for about $20 per month. The storage cap is the limiting factor right now, not the transfer cap.
Are you looking for a shared or dedicated solution?
Dedicated is preferred, but shared is okay if it helps meet the requirements above.
Are you looking for managed or unmanaged solution?
Unmanaged
Please describe your Seedbox experience:
My current setup is a Transmission instance seeding about 5,000 torrents from a home server on a residential connection, that I access and manage remotely behind a SOCKSv5 proxy. I would set up an rTorrent/ruTorrent instance on the seedbox in a similar way (Nginx reverse proxy to daemon listening on localhost).
Currently with a provider or used one before?
No
What is your Linux experience?
Professional development and systems administration for a sizeable public-sector organization.
What is your monthly budget?
$20
Payment preferences or requirements?
PayPal or debit preferred, Bitcoin not preferred.
Do you need support for public trackers?
The BioTorrents.de content distribution model is novel as far as I know: an authenticated private swarm on Tier 1, with three public backups on Tier 2 and forthcoming support for FTP/HTTP seeds.
Routing: Tell us your continent:
I'm currently seeding about 1–2 Mbps from North America and would prefer a European location.
What kind of connection speeds do you need?
At least 150 Mbps guaranteed with 1 Gbps burst available.
How much monthly bandwidth is needed?
2 TB is a reasonable limit because the data is rather niche.
How much disk space do you need?
4 TB is a good minimum, as I've allocated that much space on my home server.
List some features you are looking for:
The ability to install custom ISO images would be nice, for example to use OpenBSD-current, but it's not a strict requirement. I'll make do with whatever Linux images the service offers, preferring Debian.
Anything else you think we should know?
Thanks for helping me out!

So the tension between BitcoinABC & BitcoinUnlimited is WAY worse than I thought; it may be a bomb set to explode, but I think this is how we solve it

Jonald Fyookball recently made a post about BitcoinABC's decision to go with Checkdatasig (CDS), which seemed to me to simply seek to ascertain in hindsight whether ABC made a good choice, something of interest since there was apparently grumblings surrounding that versus Datasigverify (DSV) which came from Andrew Stone and Bitcoin Unlimited.
I learned a lot from that post, and the most important takeaway wasn't anything to do with CDS or DSV.
What I realize is there has been some grit doing very real damage in the development engine of the Bitcoin Cash community. Things are NOT running as smoothly as they might appear on the surface. I'm talking about people, exceedingly valuable people, possibly quitting contributing, or worse, setting conditions for another damaging/irksome hard-fork and group of enemies if left unaddressed. We shouldn't think we can ignore this.
The good news is I think there is a fairly simple solution. Fortunately I paid attention when an outside consultant was brought in to speak on a panel at a Bitcoin conference before Bitcoin Cash forked. The BTC community was having governance issues of course and it made sense to explore fixes. Long story short, the expert's advice was it would be exceedingly helpful to get people to meet in person, at the very least. Her experience with the Debian Linux community showed that was the single best way to improve communications and encourage better working relations between very smart yet very independent open source developers. In the original thread ThomasZander corroborated this anecdotally saying:
"The moment you start doing work making changes that everyone in the ecosystem needs to follow, then you need to spend a lot of time supporting these changes. And this has, to be forward, been lacking."
and
"For me it helped a LOT when I finally met the Frenchman face to face and could ask him lots of questions till 2am or so."
referencing BitcoinABC lead developer Amaury Séchet.
I think the Bitcoin Cash community needs to prioritize getting the the two lead developers of the two most significant node implementations for Bitcoin Cash to meet in person. I think we neglect this to our own detriment. Distrust and harmful intention become a self-fulfilling prophesy: something that may have been an innocent misunderstanding isn't resolved, then (being human) people sense harbored distrust and/or resentment, which leads to pulling back and erecting defenses, which aggravates the early suspicions, then the subtle retaliations and further misunderstandings or an actual preference for appearing more "right" than the other side for self-preservation or standing, leading to questionable actions and more distrust which somewhere becomes animosity and things keep building. This all happens over distance, in the dark, like mold growing under some refrigerator. Yet it could probably be eradicated or at least substantially improved when people have the chance to meet in person, gaining the benefits of inflection and tone of voice, etc.
So, again, I believe it's very necessary for Andrew Stone and Amaury Séchet to meet in person. How do we make this happen?

[IDEA] [PROPOSAL] Monero Debian (deb) packages / Debian package repository deb.getmonero.org (I can do)

I have the skills to implement this if wanted.
Possible User Experience
This is a proposal, i.e. not implemented yet. Instructions for users, simplified.
How to install monero using apt-get
Download the repository signing key.
wget https://www.getmonero.org/monero.asc
Add the signing key.
sudo apt-key --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/monero.gpg add ~/monero.asc
Add APT repository.
echo "deb https://deb.getmonero.org buster main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/monero.list
Update your package lists.
sudo apt-get update
Install monero.
sudo apt-get install monero
A few technical implementation details
I would simply grab the binaries provided by getmonero.org, download them, check software (gpg) signatures, put these into deb packages, add these to a repository, and upload the repository.
What I would not do is creating the binaries during package creation. While this is nice to have, it doesn't help user experience and blocks the progress on reaching this goal. See next chapter.
Why simply put the pre-build Monero binaries into a deb package?
1) After bitcoin existing for more than 10 years, being popular and being in Debian unstable (sid) it still never made its way into Debian testing, let alone stable. Reason being explained that a difference in underlying libraries (even just security fixes) during compilation may result in a network split. Binaries compiled during packaging on different versions of Linux distributions might have different libraries that might cause a network fork / chain split.
References:
(Note: above website saying Tags: fixed-upstream is probably a mistake as discussion at bottom says.)
2) The github issue of packaging monero stalled.
3) By shipping the same binaries as provided by getmonero.org reduces the chances of introducing a backdoor.
Many Options
Timeline
Doable quickly. The electrum (bitcoin) AppImage was recently added to a Debian package (binaries-freedom) by me and is now easily installable in Whonix. Pre-installed in testers version of Whonix already.
About Me
I am the founder of Whonix, which I am maintaining at present for more than 7 years.
Whonix (formerly TorBOX) is a Debian GNU/Linux–based security-focused Linux distribution. It aims to provide privacy, security and anonymity on the internet.
You can see an overview of packages I am maintaining on my github profile.
To proof that this forum account adrelanos corresponds the same person maintaining whonix.org, it is added here.
Questions
What happened to, what is the successor of the forum funding system?

A slightly overboard response to my threat model.

For what I hope are obvious reasons, I don't want, and probably will never post my threat model publicly online. However, regardless of that, what I'm sure you will extrapolate from this post is that I live my life, digitally in particular, with a fairly high level threat model. This is not because I'm some super sophisticated criminal mastermind, but rather, I am at this level because I genuinely love playing around with this stuff. And I just happen to understand the importance of privacy and just how vital it is to a truly healthy society. I would like to extend a thanks to ProgressiveArchitect for the sharing of the knowledge they have done on this subreddit, /privacytoolsio, and the like. We may have never interacted, but nevertheless, your input into this community is truly interesting and extremely informative and educating. I'm sure those of you familiar with PA's setup will be able to draw some parallels with mine and their's.
Thank you.
I hope you all enjoy reading this write up.
I run Qubes OS on a Lenovo ThinkPad X230 laptop. Specs for it are as following: - i7-3520M - 16GB RAM - 1TB Samsung 860 Evo SSD - Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 wireless card
Additionally, I used a Raspberry Pi Model 3B+ and a Pomono SPI clip to replace the stock BIOS firmware with coreboot+me_cleaner. This wasn't done out of any "real" concern for the Intel ME (though of course proprietary black-boxes like it should be avoided at all costs and not trusted), but rather for open source enthusiasm and for increased security and faster boot times than what the stock BIOS firmware allows for. On that note about the ME, I don't believe the conspiracy theories that claim that it is a state-sponsored attack method for surveillance. I believe that Intel had good intentions for improving the lives of IT professionals who need to manage hundreds, if not thousands of remote machines. However, it has proven time and time again to be insecure, and I don't need the remote management and the "features" that it provides on my machines.
In Qubes, I use a combination of AppVMs and StandaloneVMs for a variety of different purposes. All VMs use PVH over HVM, except for the Mirage Unikernel Firewall, which uses PV, and the sys-net and sys-usb StandaloneVMs which have to use HVM because of PCI device passthrough. Right now most of my VMs are AppVMs, but for maintenance and compartmentalization reasons, I am considering moving more towards StandaloneVMs, despite the increase in disk space and bandwidth usage for updates.
General route of from Qubes to the Internet for anonymous browsing, general private browsing, accessing Uni services, and Uni-related anonymous browsing respectively: 1. Qubes->sys-mirage-firewall->sys-vpn-wg->sys-corridor->sys-whonix->whonix-ws-15-dvm to the internet. 2. Qubes->sys-mirage-firewall->sys-vpn-wg to the Internet. 3. Qubes->sys-mirage-firewall->uni-vpn-wg to the Internet. 4. Qubes->sys-mirage-firewall->uni-vpn-wg->uni-corridor->uni-whonix->uni-anon-research to the Internet.

(Note: the VPN name is substituted in the "vpn" above. I had to remove it to comply with this subreddit's rules. It is easy to identify what VPN it is as it randomly generates a long numaric string and has fantastic support for WireGuard.)

Web Browsers: - Tor Browser (primary) in a disposable Whonix VM. - Firefox (secondary) with the about:config changes listed on privacytools.io and the following extensions: Cookies AutoDelete, Decentraleyes, HTTPS Everywhere, uBlock Origin (advance user, all third party content blocked and JavaScript disabled), and Vim Vixen. Used in my personal AppVM. - Ungoogled Chromium (Uni only) with standard uBlock Origin and cVim. Used only for Uni-related access in my uni-campus and uni-home AppVMs.
Search Engine: SearX, Startpage, and DuckDuckGo.
Password Manager: KeePassXC.
Office: LibreOffice.
Notes: Standard Notes.
Messaging: Signal Desktop.
Media Playback: mpv.
Emails: I access my personal email within my personal Qubes domain and my Uni email using my Uni Qubes domains. My emails are downloaded to a local repository using isync, send using msmtp, and read using neomutt with html emails converted to plain text using w3m. Emails are sent in plain text too. All of the attachments in the emails (PDFs mostly) are automatically opened in DisposableVMs.
My personal Posteo email account has incoming encryption setup. This means that I emailed my public GPG key to an address correlated to my actual Posteo email address so that all email that I receive is encrypted with my public key and can only be decrypted using my private key. So even if my emails were intercepted and/or my account broken into, the contents of them are safe since they are encrypted as soon as they hit Posteo's servers.
I have setup a number of Posteo aliases that are completely segregated from the email I used to register my account. One of those is considered my "professional" email for my current job. I have another couple aliases, one dedicated for 33mail and another dedicated for Abine Blur. I make use of 33mail alias addresses for catch-all email addresses for registering for accounts that need to be under a username associated with my name anyways. This is for purposes like putting different compartmentalized, but still related emails to put onto my Resume. I use a different alias for each Resume I put out online. That way, when that information gets sold, traded, etc., I can easily trace it back to who sold the information. For example, if I applied for a job online that required me to go through the process of registering an account through a third-party, say 'xyz Inc', the address I would register that account with would be [email protected], or something along those lines. Abine Blur is used much in the same manner but for accounts that don't need to be associated with my real name in any way, say online shopping on Amazon that I do under an many aliases, then ship to various address that I don't live at, but that I can visit with no problems. I use a different Blur address with each service like with 33mail for the same reasoning shown above.
The passwords for the accounts are encrypted and stored locally in each of the domains, however, my private key is stored in my vault domain, so even if an adversary were to compromise the domains, they wouldn't be able to steal my private key without exploiting the hypervisor. They would only be able to wait for me to authorize the usage of my private key in that domain, and even then, it could only be used to decrypt files. That is a concern that they can use my private key to decrypt messages, but they wouldn't be able to steal the key. With my personal email, the emails would also be encrypted locally anyway so they wouldn't be able to read them. My Uni email, in contrast, uses Outlook unfortunately, so there isn't any option to enable incoming encryption, and even if it was, I'm not sure how private it would be anyways.
For those looking for an in depth list of all my VMs, with explanations for the more obscure ones, I have listed them below. I have got a lot of templates, hence why I am considering moving over to StandaloneVMs, but as of right now:

Templates:

StandaloneVMs:

AppVMs:

Phone: Motorola Moto G5s running Lineage OS 16.0 Pie no G-Apps or micro-G with the following Apps: - AdAway: Open Source hosts file-based ad blocker. (Requires root.) - AFWall+: Linux iptables front end. (Requires root.) - Amaze: File manager. - andOPT: 2FA app. I like it since it can export the entries to an AES encrypted file. - AntennaPod: Podcast manager. - AnySoftKeyboard - Simple Calendar - Simple Contacts Pro - DAVx5: CalDav syncronization with my calendar on my Posteo email account. - F-Droid - Fennec F-Droid: Web Browser. Has the same Firefox addons like on Qubes minus Vim Vixen. I used the app Privacy Settings to configure the about:config. - KeePassDX: Password manager. - KISS launcher - Magisk Manager - NewPipe: YouTube app replacement. - S.Notes: Standard Notes. - OsmAnd~: Maps and navigation. - Red Moon: Blue light filter. - SELinuxModeChanger: Exactly as it sounds. (Requires root.) - Shelter: Work profile manager. - Signal: Messaging. - Vinyl Music Player: Music player. - WireGuard: VPN protocol frontend. Is configured to use my VPN account. Is setup as an always-on and connected VPN.
As mentioned, I use Shelter to manage my work profile. In it I isolate the following apps: - Clover: *chan browser. - Orbot: For routing apps through Tor. Is setup as an always-on and connected VPN. - RedReader: Reddit client. - Tor Browser
Over the last several years, I have started using my phone less and less and taking advantage of less of what it has got to offer. I don't check email on my device. I have no real need to browse the Internet on it outside of watching videos using NewPipe, browsing Reddit, and various *chan boards.
On the Smart Phone side of things, I am considering purchasing an older used iPhone SE or 6S for use with MySudo when outside of my home as well as an iPod Touch for use on WiFi only for use inside my home. The iPhone would be kept inside of a faraday bag when I am at home and not using it. It would also be kept in the faraday bag whenever at home to avoid associating that device with my home address. The iPod Touch would be used for MySudo calls instead.
Future outlook and plan for my privacy and security:
To avoid as much deanonymisation of my privacy as possible, I'm only going to specify enough so that anyone reading this can get the jist of my situation in life. I am quite young (age 16 to 25) and I started along this privacy journey when I was even younger. I was never a very heavy social media user, however I did have an online presence if you looked hard enough. My name fortunately is a very common and short name, so that does help to bury information that I was not able to remove further in the vast trenches that is the Internet.
On the digital side of things, I mentioned that I have a dedicated Crypto AppVM for handling crypto currency transactions using Bisq. I have setup a dedicated bank account that I have periodically been transferring money into so that I can trade crypto. Unfortunately, I do not live in the US, so being able to effectively start trades with others is more difficult. I also do not have access to a credit card masking account like privacy.com (that I absolutely would use given the ability). I plan on getting an anonymous VPS to host my own Tor exit node for better speeds and to mitigate the possibility of malicious exit nodes. The country I live in has been a proponent of absolute dragnet surveillance on all activities occurring online and in real life, though the former is far more visible on this subreddit. I will be using crypto with cleaned Bitcoin (as seen with ProgressiveArchitect's setup) for purchasing my VPN service, etc.
With future hardware, to replace my aging laptop, I am very hopeful for Xen, then eventually Qubes OS getting ported to Power9. When that happens I'll be getting a Raptor Computing Blackbird as a desktop. Maybe in the future I'll get a Purism Librem laptop, but for now my corebooted X230 works perfectly for my use cases. On that note, I have successfully build the Heads firmware for the X230 and I was able to get the minimal 4MB image flashed on my laptop. I did revert it back to my coreboot setup after playing around a little with it, and unfortunately I haven't had time since to do a full, complete flash of it.
On the physical/real life side of things, I plan on making use of various Trusts in order to hold assets, say to keep my name from being immediately visible on the title of my car. As of right now I am fortunate enough to have the title of my car under the name of someone who I trust. Unless I am legally required, and where there are immediate and absolute consequences, I use fake names in real life. With Uni, I am enrolled under my real name and address. This is a requirement and it is verified, so there is nothing that I can realistically do about it. As for other services, I plan on setting up a personal mailbox (PMB), etc if possible to use as a real, physical address that is associated with my real name and that is used for things like Government issued ID. In the future when I move again, I plan on renting a place in cash to try and keep my name dissociated with my real address. For those looking for reasoning on why one would want to do that, please read How to be Invisible by J.J. Luna. It's truly the Bible of physical privacy.
At this stage I am just going off on a ramble, so I should cut it short here.
I have just started and I live for this shit.

So the tension between BitcoinABC & BitcoinUnlimited is WAY worse than I thought; it may be a bomb set to explode, but I think this is how we solve it

Jonald Fyookball recently made a post about BitcoinABC's decision to go with Checkdatasig (CDS), which seemed to me to simply seek to ascertain in hindsight whether ABC made a good choice, something of interest since there was apparently grumblings surrounding that versus Datasigverify (DSV) which came from Andrew Stone and Bitcoin Unlimited.
I learned a lot from that post, and the most important takeaway wasn't anything to do with CDS or DSV.
What I realize is there has been some grit doing very real damage in the development engine of the Bitcoin Cash community. Things are NOT running as smoothly as they might appear on the surface. I'm talking about people, exceedingly valuable people, possibly quitting contributing, or worse, setting conditions for another damaging/irksome hard-fork and group of enemies if left unaddressed. We shouldn't think we can ignore this.
The good news is I think there is a fairly simple solution. Fortunately I paid attention when an outside consultant was brought in to speak on a panel at a Bitcoin conference before Bitcoin Cash forked. The BTC community was having governance issues of course and it made sense to explore fixes. Long story short, the expert's advice was it would be exceedingly helpful to get people to meet in person, at the very least. Her experience with the Debian Linux community showed that was the single best way to improve communications and encourage better working relations between very smart yet very independent open source developers. In the original thread ThomasZander corroborated this anecdotally saying:
"The moment you start doing work making changes that everyone in the ecosystem needs to follow, then you need to spend a lot of time supporting these changes. And this has, to be forward, been lacking."
and
"For me it helped a LOT when I finally met the Frenchman face to face and could ask him lots of questions till 2am or so."
referencing BitcoinABC lead developer Amaury Séchet.
I think the Bitcoin Cash community needs to prioritize getting the the two lead developers of the two most significant node implementations for Bitcoin Cash to meet in person. I think we neglect this to our own detriment. Distrust and harmful intention become a self-fulfilling prophesy: something that may have been an innocent misunderstanding isn't resolved, then (being human) people sense harbored distrust and/or resentment, which leads to pulling back and erecting defenses, which aggravates the early suspicions, then the subtle retaliations and further misunderstandings or an actual preference for appearing more "right" than the other side for self-preservation or standing, leading to questionable actions and more distrust which somewhere becomes animosity and things keep building. This all happens over distance, in the dark, like mold growing under some refrigerator. Yet it could probably be eradicated or at least substantially improved when people have the chance to meet in person, gaining the benefits of inflection and tone of voice, etc.
So, again, I believe it's very necessary for Andrew Stone and Amaury Séchet to meet in person. How do we make this happen?

Ethereum on ARM. Geth and Parity clients update. Status.im, IPFS and Swarm packages. Raiden Network and Trinity client installers.

EthArmbian [1] is a custom Linux image for the NanoPC-T4 ARM SoC [2] that runs Geth or Parity Ethereum clients as a boot service and automatically turns the device into a full Ethereum node.
Once powered up, the image takes care of all steps, from setting up the environment to running the Ethereum client and synchronizing the blockchain.
Edit: Images links are now Ready for Constantinople and Petersburg Hardforks. You can update Geth to 1.8.22 and Parity to 2.2.9 from these images by running:
update-ethereum
This is a new release of the EthArmbian image for the NanoPC-T4 ARM board. Ethereum is evolving quickly so it is time to include some other interesting pieces of the ecosystem. Changelog:

Download links

Armbian_5.74_Nanopct4_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.4.172-1-geth.img.zip
Armbian_5.74_Nanopct4_Ubuntu_bionic_default_4.4.172-1-parity.img.zip
Note: The only difference between both images is the default client that runs at boot time. You can switch between Geth or Parity at anytime.
For further info regarding installation and usage please visit Github README [1]

Status.im, IPFS and Swarm

Status [5] is a decentralized messaging & browsing app (using the Whisper protocol). And as any P2P system, it needs… peers. So if you want to support it, status is now included as a systemd service, configured in whisper and mailserver mode.
You need to start it manually as it doesn’t run by default:
sudo systemctl start status.im
And, if you want it to get started on boot you need:
sudo systemctl enable status.im
Configuration options are located in /etc/ethereum/status.im.json.
Why run a Status node? (from their FAQ):
Currently, we don’t provide any incentives for running Status Nodes. We are working hard to solve this problem. Our intent is to increase the size of the Whisper network, thereby improving how “decentralized” and safe our platform is.
Another reason is privacy. In the current setup, nodes that are running as Mail Servers are trusted. This means that such a node can communicate directly with the Status app using a p2p connection and some metadata might leak. If one wants to avoid that, the best option is to run a Mail Server on your own and configure it in the Status app.
Another important piece of the so called web 3 is decentralized storage. The most mature option available is IPFS [6] which is now included as a systemd service as well. You need to start it manually as it doesn’t run for default:
sudo systemctl start ipfs
If you want IPFS to get started on boot you need to enable it by running:
sudo systemctl enable ipfs
You can tweak config options in /home/ethereum/.ipfs/config file (particularly, you may want to adjust the StorageMax parameter).
Swarm [7] (Ethereum decentralized storage solution) is available as a binary. You may want to take a look at the official docs to start testing it.
You can run these clients along with Geth or Parity client with no performance issues.

Raiden and Trinity

As you may know, Raiden Network [8] is a Layer 2 scalability solution (similar to Bitcoin's Lightning Network). Trinity [9] is a new Ethereum client developed entirely in Python (and already working on the beacon chain).
You can install both clients by running its corresponding bash script. Take into account that both are in alpha stage so expect some trouble and give back feedback to developers, if possible. They are not properly packaged yet so the script installs them directly from Github (it takes a while).
Installation: Type (as ethereum user):
install-trinity
install-raiden
You can now run "trinity" or "raiden" commands.
Note on Trinity: If you experience this issue: “trinity: error: Timed out waiting for database start”, try to increase wait_for_ipc() “timeout” value in /uslocal/lib/python3.6/dist-packages/trinity/utils/ipc.py [10]

Ethereum nodes FUD

We’ve been seeing lately a lot of misinformation about Ethereum blockchain size and other kind of FUD.
Stick to the facts. With Parity, it just takes several hours to get a full node up and running and you need about 140 GB of SSD disk size (2-3 days with Geth and 150GB of disk size). So, you could run a full node for several months even with a 256GB SSD unit. Don’t listen to this kind of nonsense. Plain and simple: they are wrong.
This "guy" knows [11]

How can I create a blockchain from scratch?

Blockchain technology was announced initially as “A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System” by Satoshi Nakamoto in the year 2008. It is a list of transaction records known as blocks and linked together by using cryptography. In other words, blockchain is a distributed ledger and each block consists of cryptographic hash of the previous block, transaction data, and a timestamp.

Eight Steps to Make Blockchain from Scrap

#Step 1
Identify the Right Use-Case
Look for the suitable use-case complementing your business sense and needs. Get your data authenticated and verified by including encryption, and digital signatures. Use, smart asset management to include payment, exchange, escrow, issuance, and retirement payment options.
#Step 2
Identify the Right Consensus Mechanism
Once, you have opted for use-case, you need to choose the right Consensus Mechanism. Over the years, there have been multiple distributed ledger systems you can choose like Byzantine fault tolerant, Proof of stake, Round Robin, Federated consensus, and Derived PBFT.
#Step 3
Choose the Suitable Platform
Fortunately, there are many free of cost and independent blockchain platforms to use such as Chain Core, BigChainDB, Eris:db, Domus Tower Blockchain, Stellar, Symbiont Assembly, Hyperledger Sawtooth Lake, and Quorum.
#Step 4
Designing the Nodes
Blockchain solutions are distinguished into two- Permissioned (Government run land registry) and Permission-less (Where everyone can be a miner such as Bitcoin). The solutions can be private, public, and hybrid. Meanwhile, in this stage decide whether the nodes will access on premise, cloud or both. You also need to opt for base operating systems such as Debian, CentOS, Windows, Ubuntu, and Red Hat.
#Step 5
Create the Blockchain Illustration
Multiple blockchain platforms require vigilant and planned configuration that must include permissions, asset re-issuance, asset issuance, key management, native assets, address formats, and block signatures.
#Step 6
Creating APIs
Some blockchain has inbuilt APIs and some don’t. Your API must generate key pairs, and address, perform audit, authenticate data, smart asset lifecycle management and data storage and retrieval.
#Step 7
Create the Admin and User Interface
Now is the time to choose the right programming languages (JAVA, JavaScript, Ruby, Python, and Solidity), front end, external databases (MongoDB, and MySQL), and severs (mail servers, Web servers, and FTP servers).
#Step 8
Infusing Future Tech
By adding biometrics, bots, artificial intelligence, cloud, data analytics, machine learning and cognitive services you can accentuate your blockchain technology.

Atomic Wallet - The Best Universal Litecoin Wallet!

Atomic Wallet - The Best Universal Litecoin Wallet!
Atomic Wallet - The Best Universal Litecoin Wallet!
Hello, valuable crypto money followers. In this article, I would like to talk to you about the Atomic Wallet project.
Just as we all know that the cryptocurrency industry have gotten to a level where it can’t be stopped any-longer, we should also remember that this technology is still being faced with the challenge of fiat to crypto exchange because several individuals that are interested in purchasing and investing in cryptocurrencies do not have a good platform to easily convert their local currencies to bitcoin or other crypto assets.
Atomic wallet team have recognised this cogent issue and as such, they have come up with the great solution of integrating Simplex which is the largest licensed card processing company in the European Union.
Atomic wallet as we all know is a multi-feature wallet which affords its users the ability to store and manage 300+ cryptocurrencies, exchange their cryptocurrencies assets easily into other cryptocurrencies, monitor the current price of the supported cryptocurrencies among other features.

What Does the Project Promise?
Indeed the task is focused; to deal with our crypto cash resources dependably and to work through a progressively secure framework. So how is this going to be? A standout amongst the most critical issues that separates the Atomic Wallet venture from different activities is; rather than crypto trades on this stage, rather than keeping all crypto keys on the stock trades, they keep this data on clients’ gadgets. The clarification is that; We are never again ready to take our private keys and we are exceptionally protected. This is a great improvement …

What are the exceptional features of this wallet

· Ability to control your private keys by yourself only
· Private and anonymous transactions which prevents you from being hacked
· Easy to use built in cryptocurrency exchange
· Excellent user interface
· Always active customer support
· Reliable security measures which ensures the safety of users’ funds
· Very cheap and affordable transaction fees

What is Litecoin wallet?

You need to use a program to manage your Litecoins, it will keep your private keys and provide additional functions such as sending, receiving, exchanging, and more. With these programs, you’re able to manage and control your funds.

Signs of a good Litecoin Wallet

1. Security. Wallet security means the way your Litecoins and other cryptos are protected from frauds and hacking, how you manage private keys and what security technologies a particular wallet supports.
2. Accessibility. This feature implies simplicity in use and the ability to withdraw your funds from the wallet. A friendly user interface is a vital point for new users. When choosing a litecoin wallet, pay attention to its interface and the amounts you are able to operate with.
3. Functionality. If you want to choose a good LTC wallet, check it for additional services support, such as an ability to exchange cryptocurrency or buy crypto with a bank-card/paypal, etc.) In some wallets, like Atomic or Exodus, it’s possible to exchange Litecoin right in the application without visiting third party websites. Cryptocurrency will be transferred directly on your address after the exchange.

How does the framework work?
A standout amongst the most loved pieces of the stage is; individuals can make their very own requests for the trade between digital currencies, and they can be incorporated into the change orders made by others, this is extremely extraordinary …
To clarify this with a precedent; Let’s say I have a tad of Litecoin. I would prefer not to transform this Litecoini into dollars or Btc. So I need to get Lost with Ltc straightforwardly. You can change over Ltc to Iost by means of Exchange over the stage. You can even enter the sum physically in the event that you need. Right now you endorse the Exchange procedure, the Atomic Wallet begins the procedure to compute the most fitting commission and exchange the token at the greatest rate with the base expense. In this manner, as in the Ethereum framework, the cost of Gas isn’t given to the reasons, for example, the low token isn’t sent tokenize.
The Atomic Wallet application has been deliberately arranged to be utilized on each stage to contact all crowds. These stages; MacOS, Windows, Ubuntu, Debian and Fedora.
4. Customer Support. This is a vitally important to receive a fast reply on users concerns and help with troubleshooting. Good customer care is a sign of a good product. How fast will the support team help you, if you have any troubles? Crypto market is too volatile to wait days/weeks till someone will the issue. It is a good practice to reply within 24 hours.

There are many ways to buy Litecoin (exchanges, hot wallets), but one of the most secure way to buy LTC is to use Atomic Wallet. With Atomic, you can easily purchase LTC, BTC, ETH, XRP, BCH and hold 300+ coins and tokens in one place where only you control your funds. Hold them and manage with comfortable interface.

You can buy Litecoin with VISA/MasterCard right in the interface of Atomic Walletand convert your USD or EUR to LTC.

Even if you have a JPY, CAD or any other currency card, those currencies are automatically converted to either EUR or USD, depending on your choice. It’s quite easy to use and doesn’t require specific tech skills.

Rates and Security

The fees are fixed at 7%. Each operation is fully conducted by Simplex, an EU licensed card processing company. You choose an amount and currency to buy and verify your ID. Then your bank holds funds until Simplex approves the request and makes an exchange. As a rule, you receive crypto in 24 hours.
As a result, the creation of an appropriate application will undoubtedly increase the use of the Atom Wallet for some customers. According to the designers, more than 100,000 people have downloaded the Atom Wallet since the effort was disbanded. Most people use the wallet routinely. This is an approved sign of trust in the wallet! I'm sure that the full delivery of compact apps on Android and iOS will be another upgrade to attract new customers.
This review is the author's personal opinion, based on information from public sources and is certainly not a trade or investment advice.

Vertnode - An automated solution for installing Vertcoin node(s) on Single Board Computers

Hello Vertcoin Community,
Eager to contribute to the Vertcoin Community I began creating step by step walkthrough guides on how to get a Vertcoin node up and running on a Raspberry Pi, Raspberry Pi Zero and Intel NUC. Along with information to get a Vertcoin node up and running was also optional steps to install p2pool-vtc.
I decided that while this step by step guide might be helpful to a few, a setup script may prove to be useful to a wider range of people. I have this script to a point where I think it may be productive to share with a bigger audience, for those who are brave and have this hardware sitting around or like to tinker with projects; I invite you to test this setup script if you are interested, if you run into errors any sort of verbose console output of the error proves to be extremely helpful in troubleshooting.
The script was designed to produce a “headless” server... meaning we will not be using a GUI to configure Vertcoin or check to see how things are running. In fact, once the server is set up, you will only interact with it using command line calls over SSH. The idea is to have this full node be simple, low-power, with optimized memory usage and something that “just runs” in your basement, closet, etc.
Why run a headless node on a Single Board Computer?
The idea is to have this full node be simple, low-power, with optimized memory usage and something that “just runs” in your basement, closet, etc.
Required: USB Flash Drive 6GB - 32GB
Please note that the script was designed for Single Board Computers first and looks for an accessible USB Flash Drive to use for storing the blockchain and swap file, as constant writing to a microSD can degrade the health of the microSD.
Supports

Hardware

All of the hardware listed above is hardware that I have personally tested / am testing on myself. The plan is to continue expanding my arsenal of single board computers and continue to add support for more hardware to ensure as much compatibility as possible.
Functionality
It is worth noting that LIT can be ran with multiple configurations, the ones displayed in the Post Installation Report reflect values that run LIT with the Vertcoin Mainnet. Please be aware that the Vertcoin Testnet chain has not been mined 100% of the time in the past, if you make transactions on the Vertcoin testnet that do not go through it is likely because the chain has stopped being mined.
BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR COINS, ONLY TEST WITH WHAT YOU ARE OKAY WITH LOSING IF YOU USE THE MAINNET.

Vertcoin Testnet Coins

https://tvtc.blkidx.org/faucet/
I've included some documentation on LIT I created which includes information I found to be useful: https://github.com/e-corp-sam-sepiol/vertnode/blob/mastedocs/lit.md
Please visit the mit-dci/lit github repository for the most up to date information on lit: https://github.com/mit-dci/lit

Vertnode | Automated Vertcoin Node Installation Script

https://github.com/e-corp-sam-sepiol/vertnode

Recommended: Use Etcher to install the chosen OS to your microSD card / USB flash drive.

If you intend on installing Ubuntu Server 16.04 to your Intel NUC please use Etcher to install the .iso to your USB flash drive.
https://etcher.io/
PLEASE NOTE THIS SCRIPT MAY GIVE AN ERROR. THIS IS THE NATURE OF TESTING. PLEASE REPORT YOUR ERRORS IF YOU WANT THEM TO BE FIXED/RESOLVED. THANK YOU FOR BETTERING THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SCRIPT.

Ubuntu Server 16.04 Setup Details

You can use different clients to ssh into your node. One option is using PuTTY or Git Bash on Windows which is included in the desktop version of Git. If you are using Linux you can simply open a new terminal window and ssh to the IP address of your node (hardware you intend installing the Vertcoin node on).
You will need to know the IP address of your node, this can be found on your router page.
ssh 192.168.1.5 -l pi For example, this command uses ssh to login to 192.168.1.5 using the -l login name of pi. The IP address of your node will likely be different for you, in this example I am logging into a Raspberry Pi which has a default login name of pi.
A brief list of commands that can be used to check on the Vertcoin node status:
vertcoin-cli getblockchaininfo | Grab information about your blockchain
vertcoin-cli getblockcount | Grab the current count of blocks on your node
vertcoin-cli getconnectioncount | Grab the current count of connections to your node. A number of connections larger than 8 means that you have incoming connections to your node. The default settings are to make 8 outgoing connections. If you want incoming connections please port forward your Raspberry Pi in your Router settings page.
vertcoin-cli getpeerinfo | Grab the information about the peers you have connected to / are connected to
vertcoin-cli getnettotals | Grab network data, how much downloaded/upload displayed in bytes
tail -f ~/.vertcoin/debug.log | Output the latest lines in the Vertcoin debug.log to see verbose information about the Vertcoin daemon (ctrl+c to stop)
Thank you to all who have helped me and inspired me thus far, @b17z, @jamesl22, @vertcoinmarketingteam, @canen, @flakfired, @etang600, @BDF, @tucker178, @Xer0
This work is dedicated to the users of Vertcoin, thank you for making this possible.
7/20/2018 Thank you @CommodoreAmiga for the incredibly generous tip <3
