Bitcoin - Bir başka Hoccam sitesi

Got a weird email, don't exactly know what to do.

here's the email "
I know ******** is one of your password on day of hack..
Lets get directly to the point. Not one person has paid me to check about you.
You do not know me and you're probably thinking why you are getting this email?
in fact, i actually placed a malware on the adult vids (adult porn) website and you know what, you visited this site to experience fun (you know what i mean).
When you were viewing videos, your browser started out operating as a RDP having a key logger which provided me with accessibility to your display and web cam.
immediately after that, my malware obtained every one of your contacts from your Messenger, FB, as well as email account. after that i created a double-screen video. 1st part shows the video you were viewing (you have a nice taste omg), and 2nd part displays the recording of your cam, and its you.
Best solution would be to pay me $1014.
We are going to refer to it as a donation. in this situation, i most certainly will without delay remove your video.
My -BTC -address: 37n2br6njszaYRXsW6GWDDD7GD2yhT1DP8
[case SeNSiTiVe, copy & paste it]
You could go on your life like this never happened and you will not ever hear back again from me. You'll make the payment via Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search 'how to buy bitcoin' in Google).
if you are planning on going to the law, surely, this e-mail can not be traced back to me, because it's hacked too.
I have taken care of my actions. i am not looking to ask you for a lot, i simply want to be paid. if i do not receive the bitcoin;, i definitely will send out your video recording to all of your contacts including friends and family, co-workers, and so on.
Nevertheless, if i do get paid, i will destroy the recording immediately.
If you need proof, reply with Yeah then i will send out your video recording to your 8 friends.
it's a nonnegotiable offer and thus please don't waste mine time & yours by replying to this message. "
I censored the password, but I can confirm it is/was one of my passwords, I switched most important accounts to other more secure passwords since, but I do use this one for random site accounts. I do realise the grammar and stuff is awful, and he doesn't seem to have my other passwords. My questions are, could the key logger still be active? Is it possible for him to have my other passwords which I don't use for such sites? And I do not have only 8 friends on FB, but I did still change my password from the one he has just in case. And I do not own a webcam, my computer is a desktop and I have a tv as a monitor. What should I do?

Friend has been potentially compromised, seeking advice

Honestly I'm not sure if this is the right place to be asking about this - but I figure with enough experts on cyber attacks and security here, someone can point me in the right direction or see if this threat is a legitimate threat or a scam. I'll avoid mentioning personal details, for obvious reasons. My friend is scared of reaching out on their own, so I'm here on their behalf.
One of my best friends recently received an email claiming that someone had hacked into the camera on their device while they were on an adult site, where malware had been placed. Normally I'd think of this as a scam email, but they preface this with a password that my friend uses, so we know to some degree, they have something.
Here's an exact transcription of said email:
. . .
I know [insert password] is one of your password on day of hack...
Lets get directly to the point.
Not one person has paid me to check about you.

Best solution would be to pay me $1083. We are going to refer to it as a donation. in this situation, i most certainly will without delay remove your video.
My -BTC- address: [==I've redacted this for now in case they try and search this up, as I want to keep this anonymous but I can provide if needed in an edit if you think it'll help==] [case SeNSiTiVe, copy & paste it]

. . .
Naturally my friend is scared, and not sure what to do. The grammar is questionable, but the fact they have a password for sure is concerning. However, they've shown no proof that they have anything besides said password, and the footage might just be a bluff.
I'm not terribly savvy when it comes to how cyber attacks are conducted, so I don't know if what was mentioned about planting malware into a double sided video is plausible.
But on the off chance this is a deliberate threat, what kind of action can my friend take? I've already mentioned they has proof of blackmail with threats of non-consensual porn and defamation of character. Is this something they can take to the police (Granted, they're a US citizen and POC, so take the current situation in the US as you will), or is there a special department they can contact?
Any professional advice, or a better sub to seek advice, is greatly appreciated. I'd rather see this taken care of before it escalates.

Email "I'm know, XXX, is your password." Bitcoin scam?

I just received a troubling email that I have quoted below. The password they said they know is definitely mine, but I haven't used that one in a long time on anything. Not that I've ever watched anything too crazy I would care if people knew or not, it would still be embarrassing. Has anyone ever seen this before? It was from Denise Snow, email address [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]).
Also when I tried to copy and paste the email it had my name in between every third character as if it didn't want me to copy and paste.
I've changed all my passwords and have made them all unique. I'll also be covering my webcam from now on. Any help or insight would be great, thanks!

I'm know, XXX, is your password. You may not know me and you're most likely wondering why you are getting this email, correct?
In fact, I setup a malware on the adult videos (porn) web site and you know what, you visited this website to have fun (you know what I mean). While you were watching video clips, your internet browser initiated functioning as a RDP (Remote Desktop) with a key logger which provided me with access to your screen and cam. Immediately after that, my software program collected all your contacts from your Messenger, social networks, as well as email.
What exactly did I do?
I made a double-screen video. First part displays the video you were watching (you've got a nice taste : )), and 2nd part shows the recording of your web cam.
exactly what should you do?
Well, in my opinion, $1900 is a reasonable price for our little secret. You'll make the payment via Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search "how to buy bitcoin" in Google).
BTC Address: bc1qtnmewsc03cv8yn9d9p5h9k2y372m3xg3enaqfn (It is cAsE sensitive, so copy and paste it)
Note: You have one day in order to make the payment. (I have a specific pixel in this e mail, and at this moment I know that you have read through this e-mail). If I don't get the BitCoins, I will definitely send out your video recording to all of your contacts including close relatives, coworkers, and so forth. However, if I do get paid, I'll destroy the video immidiately. If you want evidence, reply with "Yes!" and I will send your video recording to your 8 friends. This is the non-negotiable offer, so please do not waste my personal time and yours by responding to this e-mail.

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.

SECOND THREAD: https://www.reddit.com/Scams/comments/9srjen/the_blackmail_email_scam_part_2/###

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.

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!

The Blackmail Email Scam

THIS THREAD IS NOW ARCHIVED, THE LATEST THREAD CAN BE FOUND HERE: https://www.reddit.com/Scams/comments/biv65o/the_blackmail_email_scam_part_3/

THIS THREAD IS NOW ARCHIVED, THE NEW THREAD CAN BE FOUND HERE: https://www.reddit.com/Scams/comments/9srjen/the_blackmail_email_scam_part_2/

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. The threats are lies and you do not have anything to worry about. In many cases the email will be addressed to your real name, but this does not matter and does not mean that the email is true. In some cases you'll even see other information about yourself in the email, like a phone number or an old password. If you receive one of these emails, you should post the text here with the personal information redacted so that it shows up on Google, and you should report it as spam if it gets past your spam filter.
Here are some news articles about this scam.
Here are a few examples of the emails, you'll notice that they generally follow a similar script but use different words, and you'll notice that they include bizarre sentences and strange phrasing:
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
Good day. Dont pay attention on my English, Im from India.
We installed mine virus onto your OS.
After that I pilfered all confidential background from your system. Moreover I had some more evidence. The most entertaining compromising that I have- its a record with your self-abusing. I adjusted virus on a porn site and then you installed it. As soon as you chose the video and tapped on a play button, my virus at once loaded on your device.
After setup, your front-camera shoot the videotape with you self-abusing, furthermore software captured precisely the porn video you chose. In next week my malicious software collected all your social media and email contacts.
If you need to erase all the evidence- send me 200 euro in BTC(cryptocurrency). Here is my Bitcoin number You have 30 hours to go after reading. If I see transaction I will erase the video forever. Differently I will send the video to all your colleagues and friends.
What's up,
If u were more attentive while caress yourself, I wouldn't worry you. I don't think that playing with yourself is really terrible, but when all colleagues, relatives and friends get video record of it- it is awful for you.
I placed virus on a porn web-site which was visited by you. When the target press on a play button, device begins recording the screen and all cameras on ur device starts working.
Moreover, my virus makes a dedicated desktop supplied with key logger function from the system , so I could get all contacts from ur e-mail, messengers and other social networks. I've chosen this e-mail cuz It's your working address, so u will read it.
I suppose that three hundred twenty usd is pretty enough for this little misstep. I made a split screen video(records from screen (u have interesting tastes ) and camera ooooooh... its funny AF)
So its ur choice, if u want me to destroy ur disgrace use my bitcoin wallet address- 16oooMVEjvdbmMRXJip8PPBewKh2PPkxmm You have one day after opening my message, I put the special tracking pixel in it, so when you will open it I will see.If ya want me to show u the proofs, reply on this message and I will send my creation to five contacts that I've got from ur device.
P.S. U are able to complain to cops, but I don't think that they can solve ur problem, the inquisition will last for 5 month- I'm from Estonia - so I dgf LOL

If you didn't buy bitcoin, and didn't mine it, ... where did you get it? Examples...

If you earn in bitcoin, you will prefer to spend in bitcoin (versus going through the friction of "cashing out" into fiat). This occurring will "close the loop", lessening significantly the conversions to and from fiat.
What would change that you would be earning inn bitcoin in the future? Well, ... you might:
Things are just getting started ...., just wait until gig marketplaces like Uber, DoorDash, and AirBNB offer to pay in bitcoin to attract more service providers. Or when payment in bitcoin is an option for those who make bulk payments -- such as Udemy which pays instructors their commissions and TryMYUI wich pays their testers.
What other ways have you ended up with bitcoin, other than buying from an exchange?

Two Years in Ark - A Brief Retrospective

Two Years in Ark - A Brief Retrospective

https://preview.redd.it/s6uu8g27ul331.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=115d0f1152d66546ee5aa61e1acd23c4c8dfb7b8

It was two years ago, June 11, 2017 at 2:40:26 AM EST, when delegate arkmoon officially registered on the ARK mainnet.
It had been roughly 4 years since I'd even looked at anything crypto-related, considering the fall of Mt. Gox had shaken investors to the core. Back then, crypto was still mostly the Wild West. You could only get Bitcoin through sites like Virwox after losing 20-40% in fees as you transferred from PayPay to Second Life Linden to Bitcoin... or shady sites where you had to use Dwolla or mail someone a money order and pray they didn't rip you off... or try your luck mining some of the new Bitcoin forks (e.g. Vertcoin, etc.) but odds are you weren't going to break even for at least 6 months, and I was too poor to buy and hodl long term.
When I heard "bitcoin" mentioned on a mainstream radio station in May, 2017, I scrambled to dig out old hard drives, CD-R's, laptops. Anything I might have had an old wallet on, but alas, I had sold it all in 2013 at a loss (anything that hadn't been stolen already).
Ethereum. "Hmm, that's new," I thought. And so, down the rabbit hole I fell, trying to decide now what to invest in. Bitcoin, yes, and some Ethereum. Ok, but the blockchains for these took days and weeks to download before I could even use them. There were new exchanges, such as Kraken and Bittrex. The fees were lower, and so I got started.
Then, one night in June, I found ARK. I'm not sure exactly how. Going through the list of coins available, ARK stood out in the fact that you didn't need to download an entire blockchain to start using it. You just downloaded the desktop wallet, and you had coins transferred in 8 seconds. So easy, it was something your grandma could do.
And then I continued to read about it. What it was built on, and how it worked. "Delegated Proof of Stake", definitely more affordable and environmentally friendly than running GPUs and ASICs with thousands of watts for mining POW coins.
"ARK, then."
I registered arkmoon delegate in an effort to solve a problem. Back in June, 2017, Ark delegates had a problem with pool hoppers. Delegates would schedule manual payouts either once per day or once per week. And right before a payout would happen, these pool hoppers would jump in and vote, essentially stealing potential rewards from loyal voters.
My initial delegate proposal was simple. Vote for me; I want to create a system that credits voters at the block-level, so they earn only if are voting for you, and you'll never have to worry about blacklisting pool hoppers again. I got virtually no support, which was frustrating. It got to the point where I simply removed myself from Ark from about June till September since no one had been voting for me. I'd like to take a second here to give a shoutout to delegate jarunik, who offered words of encouragement during this stressful time. Eventually, in October, 2017, a mysterious benefactor with over a million Ark decided to give me a chance by voting for me. Eventually, they slowly backed away while I gained my own voters organically through my dedication and higher share rate. For this chance, I am eternally grateful.
Around this time, the first biz delegate was created from 4chan, fat-fingered his payout and was begging for my solution. biz or the person behind it lasted a week, then was voted out in favor of the much more responsible GoldenPepe and his team biz_classic, who were able to release the first block-level payout script that was eventually adopted by (most) delegates. I say most, because there were several who never adopted it, and suffered as a consequence.
As time went on, we had our fair share of scammers; people who would write decent proposals, and would run off with their forging rewards. Delegates who had zero technical skill who doubled forged on the network. We've had a delegate publish their private passphrase on the blockchain. But all-in-all, things continued forward, and dedicated delegates appeared to mostly where we are today.
Then, we hit the big bull run in December, 2017 and everything was peachy. I had only been a delegate for less than 2 months, and really didn't have anything accumulated, but 2018 looked promising, so I kept working hard on building e-commerce and tax assistance sites to support the Ecosystem. As we all know now, we've been full bear mode for the past two years, but I have stuck with Ark in spite of it all simply due to the dedication I've consistently seen from the core Ark team and its delegates.
The Ark team has been consistently improving the stability and security of the blockchain, even as the price has fallen as low as it's been. Delegates such as alessio are dedicated solely on making sure the blockchain is secure, and delegates such as goose and I have been trying to develop useful tools to help both delegates and potential ARK users alike. We have cams_yellow_jacket producing professional videos, and thegoldenhorde continually impressing the community with their merch and awesome designs. Delegate arkland has amazing raffles. I can honestly say that I am proud to be part of this community.
Now, with the Ark Deployer, we are starting to see new people pop up in the Slack channels, asking how they can start up their own blockchains. The first person to start up their own chain is an accountant by profession, with little server-side experience and was able to get an Ark sidechain running in less than 24 hours. The true Ark Ecosystem is starting to form, and I am hopeful for the future.
I'd like to just take a moment to thank all my voters, and to all of you in the Ark Ecosystem for your continued support. I don't know what the future holds for us, but I am thankful for how far we've come.

Hey guys, I’ve been a webmaster since I graduated college (Clemson, go Tigers!) in 2003. Some of my portfolio includes adult webcam projects. I could use your help with an upvote on this topic if you wouldn’t mind. My goal is to show the adult webmasters the massive size of the crypto community. We just implemented new cryptos on our platform and I want to urge other webmasters to do the same. Once this gets some legs, I plan on posting it to some adult webmaster news resources such as XBiz and AVN. It would be huge if we got this on the first page of Reddit to show them the demand. I’m not sure if you’re up on your internet history, but if you watched the movie Middle Men, you would know that Porn paved the way for online billing back in the late 90s. So maybe, just maybe, this could be substantial for merchant adoption.
Without further ado, here’s the letter I plan on publishing…
Dear Fellow Adult Webmasters,
Rather than submit a press release about adding multiple cryptocurrencies to our payment options on camwithher.com, I wanted to reach out to my fellow webmasters and urge you to do the same. The adult industry paved the way for online credit card processing in the late 1990s. Perhaps it can also pave the way for cryptocurrency payments online.
We were the first cam site (and perhaps adult site in general?) to offer Bitcoin deposits (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=138248.0) in January of 2013. Then unknown cryptocurrency advocates (now major influencers), Erik Voorhees (Shapeshift.io) and Tony Gallippi (Bitpay.com), convinced me to integrate Bitcoin into one of our more unkown cam sites as a test. At first, I was skeptical of digital money, transferring it 100% into fiat, however, I quickly changed my tune. Soon thereafter I integrated Bitcoin into our other sites and adjusted our settlement from 100% fiat to 100% Bitcoin. I got a fever, and the only prescription was more crypto. I was hooked. I started becoming a huge crypto advocate myself. I spoke at Bitpay’s Internext seminar. I went on to build my first mining rig. I invested in alt coins. It became a whole “thing”. HODLing became life.
Fast forward to today, cryptocurrency has come a long way, getting integrated more and more into everyday life and featured in major news headlines. However, there’s still a long road ahead in mass adoption, and this is where I think we can significantly make an impact. A vast majority of merchants don’t accept cryptocurrency and there’s absolutely no reason not to. Let me explain…
Do you like low merchant fees? Well you’re not going to get any lower than .5%. What other processor (especially in adult) will give you that? CoinPayments.net will and they’ll throw in a Paypal option at no charge. Some adult processors are taking 15% or higher.
Do you like getting chargebacks? Of course you don’t, and you won’t have to with cryptocurrency. There are no chargebacks. Yeah, none, zip, zilch, nyet, you get the picture.
Not a huge fan of crypto? No problem, get everything settled in fiat at no charge. If you’re anything like me, that will change.
What’s in it for me you ask? Sure, I own crypto and it would be nice to see it go up in value, but that isn’t why I’m writing this. Sure, my cam site is featured in this letter so you may be thinking I want the traffic. Traffic is nice, don’t get me wrong, but I sincerely want to see crypto get to the next level. I believe in the vision and want to see it succeed.
You have nothing to lose! So you only have to ask yourself one question. When Lambo? You’ll understand that once you dive in ;)
All the best,
Steve

SNR Productions, Inc.
Disclaimer: I kept most links out of this letter that I plan on putting in the news articles. I just wanted to follow the rules of this sub and didn't want this to appear as spam, so I left them out.
PS. I'm extremely excited to be the first cam site to offer BTC, LTC, BCH, DASH, DOGE, ETC, ETH, LSK, NEO, QTUM, STEEM, XMR, ZEC, and XRP payments!
edit: Wow ranked #3 on cryptocurrency! Thanks everyone! This is going to def turn some heads.

The Blackmail Email Scam

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.

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. The threats are lies and you do not have anything to worry about. In many cases the email will be addressed to your real name, but this does not matter and does not mean that the email is true. In some cases you'll even see other information about yourself in the email, like a phone number or an old password. If you receive one of these emails, you should post the text here with the personal information redacted so that it shows up on Google, and you should report it as spam if it gets past your spam filter.
Here are some news articles about this scam.
Here are a few examples of the emails, you'll notice that they generally follow a similar script but use different words, and you'll notice that they include bizarre sentences and strange phrasing:
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
Good day. Dont pay attention on my English, Im from India.
We installed mine virus onto your OS.
After that I pilfered all confidential background from your system. Moreover I had some more evidence. The most entertaining compromising that I have- its a record with your self-abusing. I adjusted virus on a porn site and then you installed it. As soon as you chose the video and tapped on a play button, my virus at once loaded on your device.
After setup, your front-camera shoot the videotape with you self-abusing, furthermore software captured precisely the porn video you chose. In next week my malicious software collected all your social media and email contacts.
If you need to erase all the evidence- send me 200 euro in BTC(cryptocurrency). Here is my Bitcoin number You have 30 hours to go after reading. If I see transaction I will erase the video forever. Differently I will send the video to all your colleagues and friends.
What's up,
If u were more attentive while caress yourself, I wouldn't worry you. I don't think that playing with yourself is really terrible, but when all colleagues, relatives and friends get video record of it- it is awful for you.
I placed virus on a porn web-site which was visited by you. When the target press on a play button, device begins recording the screen and all cameras on ur device starts working.
Moreover, my virus makes a dedicated desktop supplied with key logger function from the system , so I could get all contacts from ur e-mail, messengers and other social networks. I've chosen this e-mail cuz It's your working address, so u will read it.
I suppose that three hundred twenty usd is pretty enough for this little misstep. I made a split screen video(records from screen (u have interesting tastes ) and camera ooooooh... its funny AF)
So its ur choice, if u want me to destroy ur disgrace use my bitcoin wallet address- 16oooMVEjvdbmMRXJip8PPBewKh2PPkxmm You have one day after opening my message, I put the special tracking pixel in it, so when you will open it I will see.If ya want me to show u the proofs, reply on this message and I will send my creation to five contacts that I've got from ur device.
P.S. U are able to complain to cops, but I don't think that they can solve ur problem, the inquisition will last for 5 month- I'm from Estonia - so I dgf LOL

So I finally gave Honeyminer a try. (my personal semi-review)

This review was last updated 11-30-18
When I first was interested in trying this program I couldn't find anything about it. it seems a lot of people were too scared to try it since their is like no information about it other then from the web page itself. to be honest I was a bit scared to try it. I've tried many other software of this kind, on a "test" machine I'm not afraid to lose on a secondary network and router... incase its a scam or gonna give me a virus and I suggest anyone installing mining software do the same as a rule of thumb. please keep in mind the software is still relatively new and they are working to improve it still. They seem to be hiring as well if your interested in helping them grow by working for them look near the bottom for their contact e-mail. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________
This review is for the windows version of Honyminer Because its still relatively new I knew could go one of two ways "sacm software" like most every mobile mining app or even quite a few desktop ones - Or legit. I'm glad to say after using it for a month it seems legit. I was able to withdraw from it no problem. If your system is really crappy It might not work that well on your computer or mining rig. There are no ads and the program doesn't seem to disrupt any day to day activity at least not on my main system, however you can of course expect increased heat production of your system as with any mining software, adequate cooling is important in mining. Anyways Honyminer is as close to an easy one click mining software as I have come. they seem to be making a "pro" version too for more hardcore miners. They do take a fee which is to be expected *look near the bottom for fee information\* but that fee goes down significantly if you have multiple GPU's mining.. The good thing about it for me was it let me kind of set my rig to "autopilot" so to speak. If you wish to see the H/s numbers in real time, go to you settings and view the "expert logs" which will also tell what coin is being mined at the time ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Pros
Pro and or con (depending on how you look at it)
Cons:
_________________________________________________________________________________________________
COMPATIBILITY: (sorry it keeps adding asterisks to the card model for no reason)
WORKED ON: every nvidia card tested so far with card models dating back from 20014 to now..
Worked on some surprising low end and or old CPU and GPUs. like the
AMD Radeon R9 380 card in addition to a AMD Athlon II X3 450 Processor and it mines just fine.. of course that processor doesn't make much on its own lol.. but thats an extra 2 or 3 cents per day by itself. I've also tested it with an i3, i2 Most AMD cards worked but I ran into issues with a few so maybe it's easier for me to just tell you what did not work.
DID NOT WORK ON:
--- any of the AMD ATI Radeon HD 4250's tested so far (2) that particular card It didn't work at all for mining like never enabled the gpu but the cpu on that machine did work however it would generate an "error" on start up but otherwise did not disrupt the mining on that system except if I turned on idle earning mode, I would get a bunch of errors as it was trying to access the GPU. we need the functionality to enable or disable hardware individually I think. (errors or no errors it just seems like a good thing to have.)
OR a system that had both a AMD Radeon R7 Graphics and a AMD A8-7650K Radeon R7, (4C+6G) which surprised me considering some of the things that did work lol... but I think it might just might be that one system, but either way can't vouch that it will work. That system was pre-built and wont allow the parts to be changed or easily removed to be worth the effort since I have to use it for other things so unfortunately I can't test these on another mainboard at least not with wasting some time, money and patients that Id rather dedicate elsewhere for now.
I had some issues using one RX Vega 56 card but i think it's was just that card because another one did work just fine.________________________________________________________________________
FEES W/ comparison to nicehash
I'm not sure if this post will be helpful to anyone looking into this software or anyone whos looking to try a different mining software but if it dose great.
-- nicehash charges the following fees as far as "selling/mining" or withdrawing.
Payouts for balances less than 0.1 to external wallet 5%
Payouts for balances greater than or equal to 0.1 BTC to external wallet 3%
Payouts for balances greater than or equal to 0.001 BTC to NiceHash wallet 2%
Withdrawal fees from NiceHash wallet
Withdrawals from NiceHash wallet are subjected to the withdrawal fee, which depends on the withdrawn amount and withdrawal option.
WITHDRAWAL OPTION AMOUNT TO WITHDRAW FEE Any BTC wallet From 0.002 (min) to 0.05 BTC 0.0001 BTC
Any BTC wallet More than 0.05 BTC 0.2% of withdrawn amount
Coinbase More than 0.001 BTC FREE - No fee. but they also say Minimum Coinbase withdrawal limit is adjusted dynamically according to the API overload._____________________________________________________________________________
honyminer fees are based on number of GPU's working.
8% for 1 GPU or for 2 GPUs or more the fee is 2.5%.
The only withdrawal fee is the standard BTC transaction fee that bitcoin charges and it doesn't go to honyminer. When they add the other withdrawal functions that fee cam be avoided I suppose.
_________________________
Earnings: in comparison to nicehash
Update: sometimes software / test networks will give a view that can be off + or - a few percent compared to actual. A lot of different things can affect your earnings including where you are located in the world, I'm not sure how many of you uses more than one mining software day to day , ISP issues, crypto price fluctuation, updates to fee's, and inaccuracies in test software/networks can affect results. but I go back and forth between different ones from time to time and I think that's good practice to keep options open. I notice that honey miner seems to do better for me at night-time and early morning/afternoon is when it has the most trouble raking in the crypto's
That said I've been trying to test to see how this compares to nice hash earnings, with two of my buddies. So this is an average between the 3 of our profits vs loss compared to nice hash, I'm using a two 10 GPU/ 3 cpu setups, while one of my buddies is using two 1 gpu, 2 cpu setups and the other is using two 30 gpu mini farm's. We each have 2 networks each located relatively close by *less than .5 mile the furthest one* one with honyminer running and the other with nice hash and we are looking over 24 hour periods When all three of us have the results for one day, we average our results together. In all we will be looking over a 14 day period. UPDATE: the results below were done well long before the latest update to the software so I do not know if they have changed, Id have to do another round or perhaps some from the community could give me their results and save me a bit of work. I'm not sure when Id have the time to dig into it again. Sorry that it took me so long before I could get on here to post the results of the last few days of the tests.
Seem to be a bit smaller then nicehash at times and higher at other times. it seems to for me at least payquicker and it gets deposited in my nicehash account sooner than I expected.
hopefully when they let up pick which coin to mine on our own it may help somewhat, and any of you who want to move smaller volume will probably benefit when they add the functionality to withdraw other coin/usd.
anyways when their autopilot system works it works great but when it doesn't it's just "okay" for lack of a better word...
_____________________________________________________
Contact: they have a contact us part on their webpage and they also have a reddit page which I was made aware of from contacting them https://www.reddit.com/HoneyMine
Careers: If anyone is interested in working for them the job listings at the time of this typing were for Senior Java Developer(s) and Customer Service Representative(s) the email listed is [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]). id suggest you check their site for the requirements I just added this part to the review as a courtesy if anyone's interested its not meant to be a focus of it. But I know we have some really talented people on reddit who care about the crypto world passionately so id rather give honyminer a chance to have some of those sort on their team since it might help improve the software faster for the end users.. if that makes sense.
_________________________________________________________
UPDATE: If a question reminds me I left out something I think should have mentioned Ill try to add it here so ppl don't have to scroll all over the place.. I don't write many reviews (for anything) so I don't know if this one was any good or not but I hope it was okay.. and I'm still a new reddit user relatively. I just wanted to make this review mainly because there is next to no information on honyminer when I looked for it and maybe it can help anyone whos interested in it.
browolf2 asked Is it basically like nicehash then? :
A: In a way, its like nice hash that its cloud based, but you get paid not just when your pool completes an order. there are no "buyers" only "sellers" if you look at it that way...I hope I'm wording this the right way.. It's just straight up mining and they take their fee but compared to nicehash the fees for "mining" are different
karl0525 asked: do you know if we can contact the honeyminer dev team and see if they will communicate here on Reddit. Might give them some good ideas what us miners are looking for? Worth a try maybe? Thanks:
A: I submitted a question to their "contact us" part of their webpage and I got a reply from them, this is the message I received below:
Thank you for writing in and for your interest in Honeyminer. We always welcome feedback and suggestions from our users. We are currently planning on expanding our online and social media presence.

Payment options for Canadian performers and sellers

So this question comes up a lot and I thought it was worth making a separate post about it to try and get all the information in one place. While there are many great resources on the various camming and selling subreddits regarding payment options, none of them are specific to Canadian sellers as far as I know. Please make sure you familiarize yourself with those, though, because they have information about the safety of your money and your identity/privacy when using each service.
Transparency Statement
Apps and services I have personally used will be indicated within. I also want to note that I was given a $10 Polyalpha gift card by a fellow Redditor and seller for a chance to try the service (it was a public offer given in a comment thread). I do not anticipate bias because of this, but it has given me information about the service that I would not have otherwise had.
Disclaimer
This post is for information purposes only and nothing I say should be construed as an endorsement. Similarly, the focus of this post is on payment options for Canadian models. There are a lot more things to consider as you do your research, so please keep in mind that this is not intended to be a comprehensive resource and take the time to double-check how each works when it comes to personal safety and anonymity in particular.
I have broken this down into two tables – one for third-party apps that Canadians can use to receive direct payment from individual buyers, and one that gives the lowdown on getting paid from various content/cam sites. Note that many of the options in Table 2 are also payment processors or can be used as such.
Table 1. Third-party apps for receiving direct payment.
>>Options in bold require that you have a US-based checking account<< See next section for more information.

Service Currency options for receiving payment Payment options for buyers Withdrawal procedure Fees Notes Source

Table 1 Notes
Opening a US Checking Account
To my knowledge, TD and RBC are the only banks where this is possible. In order to take advantage of the payment options I’ve identified in bold in Table 1 and Table 2, it is imperative that you open a US-based checking account and not just a USD account through your home branch. The difference is that a US-based checking account is tied to a branch that has a physical location in the US.
I opened mine through RBC and it was relatively painless. I opened a Canadian checking account online but had to go to a branch to provide ID verification. This is required in order to open the US account. Next I called them to open the US-based account. You can do this at any branch as well, but I was told that it takes longer to open this way. Over the phone, it was instant. My accounts are linked through my online banking portal and RBC banking app, allowing me to transfer myself money easily and instantly. They also sent me a Visa Debit for my US account, which took about two weeks to arrive.
Table 2. Payment methods for Canadian sellers and performers on various cam/content sites.
I have omitted all instances of wire transfers (because they are slow, expensive, and usually have high payout minimums) and all instances of cheques (because they are slow). I have omitted all mention of ePayments because they no longer accept payments in USD.

07-04 05:03 - 'You are correct --- if you hold bitcoin, you are exposing yourself to exchange rate fluctuations. This is the same as if you held stock in Apple, Inc / Except there are no coffee shops that accept a fraction of a share of...' by /u/cointastical removed from /r/Bitcoin within 40-50min

'''
You are correct --- if you hold bitcoin, you are exposing yourself to exchange rate fluctuations. This is the same as if you held stock in Apple, Inc
Except there are no coffee shops that accept a fraction of a share of Apple as payment, right?
But if you happen to hold Apple shares as your only investment, and then ran out of dollars/cash, ... you would need to sell some fraction of your Apple stock in order to get dollars to buy your coffee. Wouldn't it just be easier if there was an easy way to spend a fraction of your Apple stock for coffee then, in that instance?
If that were possible, does that mean people would go out and buy Apple stock so that they can pay for their coffee with it? No, if they have dollars, they would continue to use dollars to buy their coffee, and that's OK.
Now, ... let's say you were to get paid in Apple stock. This might be because you are a freelancer, and that's just the payment method that your client prefers to use when paying vendors. Who knows why,... let's just go with that, for conversation's sake.
So if you get paid in Apple stock, and then you can make your purchases using Apple stock, you are likely to keep most or all of your income in Apple stock until you spend it. Especially if you think Apple stock is a good investment.
Now some people are more sensitive to exchange rate fluctuations than others. For them, ... they don't want to lose money if Apple stock goes down in value, so they may want to convert their Apple stock into the dollar (which is known to be more stable) right after receiving the Apple shares as income. They can still, at a later time, convert some of those dollars back into Apple shares for buying coffee, ... but there's no real reason to do that.
So you are essentially correct. People will not use bitcoin for spending on things like coffee, except for those who earn in bitcoin and those who invest in bitcoin.
Well, who earns in Bitcoin today? That would be those who might:

- be awarded a prepaid gift card at work but can't use it so you use it to buy bitcoin

Help. Please. I need it so bad.

Ello mate! This is a throwaway account, and it’s pretty personal. I just- really need help. Here’s some information before we start.
Now, I was having a little fun yesterday, if you know what I mean- I hadn’t done such in ages, which was surprising for me. I went onto a porn site, which, like I said, I hadn’t done recently. A few hours later, I receive this email, that is titled my email address and my password to just about everything. This is typed out word-for-word, besides the little accented and brail bits that are literally all over the place for no reason. Because that would take too long.

“i do know [insert MY password here] one of your passphrases. Lets get directly to to the point. No one has compensated me to check you. You may not know me and you are most likely wondering why you’re getting this email?
i installed a malware on the adult video clips (porno) website and you know what, you visited this site to experience fun (you know what I mean). When you were watching videos, your browser initiated operating as a Remote Desktop that has a key logger which gave me acces to your display as well as web cam. immediately after that, my software program gathered your complete contacts from your Messenger, social networks, e-mailaccount. and then I created a double video. 1st part displays the video you were watching ( you have fine taste lol . . . ), and next part shows the view of your web camera, yeah its you.
You have two different solutions. Lets explore these types of solutions in particulars:
Very first solution is to disregard this message. as a consequence, I am going to send your actual videotape to all your contacts and just think the humiliation you will see. Furthermore if you are in an affair, exactly how is it going to affect?
Number 2 choice is to compensate me $1488. We are going to regard it as a donation. in this instance, I most certainly will instantaneously discard your video. You can keep going on everyday life like this never occurred and you will never hear back again from me. You’ll make the payment via bitcoin (if you don’t know this, search up ‘how to buy bitcoin’ in Google).
BTC address to send to: 1NpCznm93UXJNMvkoFgy6mtGZLc6zgUsm
If you may be looking to the law, anyway, this mail cannot be traced back to me. I have dealt with my actions. I am just trying to charge you much, I prefer to be compensated. You now have 48 hours in order to pay. I have a unique pixel in this email and right now I know that you have read this email. if I do not get the bitcoins, I will, no doubt, send out your video to all of your contacts including friends and family, co workers, etc. however, if I receive payment, I’ll destroy the recording immediately. It’s a non-negotiable offer, so please do not waste mine time and yours by responding to this email. if you need evidence, reply ‘Yeah!’ Then I will certainly send out your video to 12 friends.”
Is it a hoax? Just a lie? If it is, how do they know my information? I am small, still technically a child, and I’ve never dealt with this before. I’m terrified. Somebody random on the Internet knows my name, my life, and probably can see my sunburnt face and my screen as I type this. That is the scariest thing in my life. Please help. Please. What does one do? And is this just a joke? How do I fix this?

u/pskrzyni81 report out from the 6/10 blockchainnw event in Seattle.

Monday the day before the main event.
Things started on Monday at 4pm in a workplace building. It’s a building with space rented out for business or project meeting. It was a meet and greet for a few hours and then finished off the day at a bar. Seems like the organizers of the event were either sold on Burstcoin by BNFT (they helped to organize it) or they were sold after talking to u/nixops, u/grlz2grlz or just did research and liked the project, but they were every open and helpful to us. When I asked them to interrupt the meet and greet to play our “what is burstcoin” youtube video, they set up a projecter and got everyone to stop what they were doing and played the video. (It felt good seeing a group of 50+ people deep into crypto seeing that video) The team definitely gained a few new community members that night. The night wrapped up at a bar where we just did more meet and greet.
Day of the event
Next day we started at the event at 7am to set up. I spent my own money on banners in staples. u/nixops and u/grlz2grlz spent their own money on copies of all our marketing material. Owner of the site SignatureIT.org also came with us and set up his own booth to showcase his Burstcoin mining equipment business. He brought a huge suitcase of mining equipment. It was like we had 2 booths because he would present his business and then steer people to our booth to find out more about Burstcoin.
We got a lot of foot traffic and had a good table right by the event entrance. Below are some key points.
  1. Once again only 5% to 10% of people we talked to ever heard of Burstcoin. They have no idea about proof of capacity.
a. To add to this frustration, I am seeing more youtube videos talking about the different types of mining and they NEVER talk about PoC. Its like they are clueless that it exists or know about it but for some reason purposely leave it out. Some with articles online.
  1. Mircosoft know about burstcoin. This was a weird encounter. Was outside smoking a cig and was asked for one. So I shared one. After a few min of talking I asked who he was. He was representing Microsoft (I hope nixops or u/grlz2grlz have his business card because i dropped it off at our booth) He was sent to scout the event. He confirmed that Burstcoin is known by Mircosoft and even more on the radar because of HDD sales spiking. He stopped by the booth for a min but spent most of his time in the other room where all the speakers were doing speeches and panels. So he got to hear the couple presentations u/nixops did.
  2. Starbucks sent a Senior Application Developer to check out the event for anything new or useful. I now have him as a contact on linkedin. I got his attention with the few things below. B and C defiantly got his attention. https://www.linkedin.com/in/ganesh-malapaka-11999761/ I will continue talking with him to keep remaining him we are interested in a partnership.
a. Started with the whole pitch why Burstcoin is the future (we all know it by now)
b. Then I got him on the hook! I told him that all of Starbucks locations have equipment with HDD and I am sure they have some space left on these drives. Every location they have could be mining Burstcoin right now. They could be accepting Burstcoin and mining it.
c. I added that in the near future they will be able to mine from their security cam video saved on their HDD at each location using real data mining.
  1. Another person I met with (also now contacts on Linkedin) was Rex Chen the COO or Ecoinmerce.io. https://www.linkedin.com/in/rex-kai-chen-4b898414/ He like our project and want to see how we can work together.
a. Please check this site and linkedin and help come up with ideas how we can partner with his project.
b. He also promised to talk to some smaller exchanges he has contact with to have Burstcoin added.
  1. While at the booth I was approved by https://coldstoragecoins.com/ Later I stop at their booth to talk more to Nicole the director of event. I got some more contact info and emailed them yesterday. If anything moves I will keep the community updated. I want them to make a coin for Burstcoin and sell it on their site. I also suggested accepting Burstcoin, and if not in the beginning then someday in the future once they see sales take of on that product.
  2. Another project interested in Burstcoin and interested in finding a way to partner with us is Voytravel.com. contact is https://www.linkedin.com/in/hpaul/
a. also need community input how we can benefit working with these guys.
  1. There were a few Youtubers and writers that stopped by and got a lot of info from us. They are promising to give more coverage about our project. We will see how this goes in the next week or 2.
  2. Few investment firms stopped by the booth. They didn’t understand the tech to much but took the info since I explained that we are currently unknown project with one of the most advance techs and this could be an explosive investment for them. Not sure where this will go but I tried.
Im sure u/nixops and u/grlz2grlz have more stories since we spent a lot of time talking to different people which is a good thing since it shows we had multiple people stopping at once at the booth.
Summary of the event.
This topic is for a discussion. Few people brought up bitcoin foundation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin_Foundation This started when a business wanted to donate for the event fund but wanted to write it off on his taxes. The question came up who is in charge of Burstcoin and can address things like this and things that will come up in the future that will require legal work. Right now, I don’t know how to address the tax write off and who can sign off on what the business donated. And what requirements are needed for the person or group that does sign off on such a thing. So, we as a community need to learn what the Bitcoin foundation does and how we either get involved or make our own foundation. I suggest finding someone that has the required knowledge to move us forward in this topic.
I already brought this up before and I know that u/nixops is looking into it, but we need a mining pool for donating mining power. The burstcoin mined by this pool will be used to fund marketing, event costs, PR campaigns. This is every important since this event shows us that we still have only 5% to 10% of cypro world that knows we even exist. Please post examples on how you find new coin projects currently to give us ideas on how to reach more people.
Over all this event was a good idea. We made the trip from San Jose and LA to Seattle on our own money. This won't fly to much in the future. This is why I am suggesting the donation mining pool. But most efficient way to use the donated funds from the pool will be for people to find local event they can drive to and won't need a hotel. Everyone sees that such events are useful and the community will fund them with either crowdfudning or donating mining power, so PLEASE start looking for local event.
Same group that did the blockchainnw event is preparing an event in LA and I plan to get a booth since I live in LA area.
Thank you.

New extortion emails being sent out to people who have been exposed from past data breaches

There is a new "sextortion" email making the rounds demanding money from people to not have video of them sent to all of their contacts. They are using previous data from past data breaches to try and convince you that this is serious. Here is the text I received today:
"Let's get straight to the point. I am aware XXXXX is your password. Moreover, I do know about your secret and I have proof of your secret. You do not know me personally and no one employed me to investigate you.
It's just your misfortune that I found your misdemeanor. In fact, I actually installed a malware on the adult vids (pornography) and you visited this web site to have fun (you know what I mean). While you were busy watching videos, your web browser began operating as a Rdp (Remote desktop) that has a key logger which provided me access to your display and web cam. After that, my software collected your complete contacts from your messenger, facebook, as well as email.
Next, I gave in much more hours than I should've looking into your life and made a double screen video. 1st part displays the video you were watching and other part shows the capture of your web camera (its you doing dirty things).
Honestly, I want to forget all about you and allow you to get on with your life. And I am about to present you two options that may achieve that. The two choices with the idea to ignore this letter, or simply just pay me $1900. Let’s explore those 2 options in more detail.
Option 1 is to ignore this email. Let's see what will happen if you choose this path. I will send out your video recording to your entire contacts including family members, coworkers, and many others. It does not save you from the humiliation your family will have to face when family and friends find out your unpleasant videos from me.
Option 2 is to make the payment of $1900. We will name it my “privacy fee”. Now let me tell you what happens if you choose this path. Your secret remains your secret. I will erase the video immediately. You continue on with your life as though nothing ever occurred.
At this point you may be thinking, “I will complain to the police”. Let me tell you, I have covered my steps to make sure that this email message can't be linked back to me and yes it won't stop the evidence from destroying your health. I'm not planning to break your bank. I just want to be compensated for efforts and time I put in investigating you. Let's assume you have chosen to generate this all go away and pay me the confidentiality fee. You'll make the payment through Bitcoin (if you don't know this, type "how to buy bitcoins" on search engine)
Amount to be sent: $1900 Bitcoin Address to Send to: 16Cq8aSzMvr9SigEE4Lmnp1dTURancp1YY (It is cASe sensitive, so copy and paste it carefully)
Tell no person what you should be sending the bitcoin for or they may not offer it to you. The task to get bitcoins can take a couple of days so do not delay. I've a special pixel within this message, and at this moment I know that you've read this email. You now have 48 hours in order to make the payment. If I do not receive the Bitcoins, I will, no doubt send out your video to your contacts including close relatives, colleagues, and so on. You better come up with an excuse for friends and family before they find out. Nevertheless, if I receive the payment, I will erase the video immediately. It is a non-negotiable one time offer, thus kindly do not waste my personal time & yours. The clock is ticking."
The XXXXX password they sent in the text was an old one of mine that had been compromised many years ago, but it did make me pay attention at first. The rest of the message didn't matter because I never go to these sites.
What I did:
I reported the scam to the FBI including the email address and the bitcoin wallet. I reported the email address to the appropriate .com and I'm letting you all know right now.
Here is a security blog that is discussing the sudden wave of these emails going out.
Everyone should check their login information for data breaches and change the appropriate passwords using Have I been Pwned.
Anytime you receive a message saying pay money or else, be skeptical that there is an else. I do not care if you're visiting the sites this person claims, but make sure that you do not send money off to a scam no matter how worried your are.

sharkT4nk dotonion

So I’m a 28 year old guy, and not exactly what most people would consider a normal one, thank god. No one, including any of my friends, knows just how deep that actually goes. Not even my best friend of 19 years, who I’m gonna call John, suspected a thing until it was too late. I’m gonna call myself Ghost for this, cause as far as any of you, or the feds for that matter, are concerned that’s all I am or ever will be. Every single thing I post as Gh0sT666 comes from a different IP address and its original location is completely untraceable, lol everything about Gh0sT666 is completely untraceable too for that matter. I learned the skills needed to do this kinda shit through years of using the dark web.
Its been 8 or 9 years now, and the dark web has been a blessing so to speak. I went from watching the same old shit on BestGore to getting to see some real shit, live videos in all of their glorious and grotesque carnage. Shit I hadn’t ever seen before. It was love at first site. I’m not gonna go into depth on how I found out about this place or any hacking technicals, or even what this beautiful place is called. If you have to ask you’ll never know. I love this place way too much to risk it being compromised. Besides, we already have plenty of active patrons.
My first experience with what I’m gonna call SharkT4nk for the purpose of writing this was when I was around 19 or 20 or some shit. It was extremely hard to get into and took hours of coding work (now ive gotten it down to just the press of a button and a randomized 26 character password, including letters like æ œ ø and ß so even if the feds do manage to find me, good luck guessing it ;) ) to access, but the second I heard that first scream I was sold. The page had a chat room on the right side of the screen, grey background, neon green text, and a loading video player taking up the rest of the screen.
You could drag the chat box around wherever you want, and there was a control panel under it that listed off camera numbers and tip amounts. The video was taking time to load, still stuck on the same frame as when it appeared, the sound was coming through though. The sound of a power tool of some kind was dominating most of the audio but there was a super high pitched scream along with it. Finally, after what felt like 10 minutes, the video loaded and I saw it. The most beautiful piece of throbbing erection inducing gore I had ever seen. I can still remember it perfectly to this day.
There was a large dark room, all you could see from the fluorescent light held up over the scene was a metal table with a girl strapped to it and a men next to her. There was what looked to be a tarp or plastic wrap or something all over the floor, and a small surgical table with the tools of the trade that id come to know so well placed on it. You could just barely see the shadowy outline of a forklift in the background. The girl was held down to the metal table with what looked like leather straps that were probably once white, now caked with deep reddish brown stains with bright red blood splattered on top, reflecting the light from the fluorescent bulb about 5 or 6 feet above.
The man standing next to her was wearing a dark sweatshirt with a brownish red stained leather smock over it, dark pants, and a guy fawkes mask soaked with blood. The power tool I had heard was a sawzall, it wasn’t being used anymore unfortunately, but you could clearly tell what had been done with it. The bicep on this 20 something year old girls left arm was hanging off the bone, and the man in the guy fawkes mask was grabbing and squeezing and pulling at her torn bicep, all the while the girl on the table was screaming and sobbing the beautiful harmonies of agony. In a frenzy of dialed in, unadulterated sexual energy I unzipped my pants and began pleasuring myself, very careful not to finish too soon without seeing what happened next. I noticed the chat box had filled up with new requests, some of the user names having a gold star next to them and a bitcoin tip next to the requests. I scroll back and see one with a gold star and a tip of around 250 usd worth of bitcoin.
“Cut the muscle off of its arm with a hack saw”
I scroll down to the bottom and see the most recent starred request with a $500 tip. “cut the connective tissue in its jaw, clamp its head and neck down to the table, and rip its jaw off with the forklift”
Need I describe the mess I had to clean up off the back of my laptop?
I later learned that those gold stars next to their ambiguous user names were to show that they were one of that particular videos sponsors, and they had helped pay the fee for the kidnapping of the person in the video (we call them livestock) and the materials to be used in it. for a price that varied based on their original contribution, they could choose what happens next to the Livestock. Well needless to say my friends, I quickly learned that I wanted to be at the top of that list of sponsors on every video that I could be. The thrill of just watching something this beautifully macabre, so blissfully dark, so magically grotesque, wasn’t enough. I knew I needed more control than id get by being just another one of the plebs that were just watching.

Me and john had been really close ever since we were kids. We were the only ones in our town that were into comic books, sci fi, and fantasy and shit, so we naturally gravitated towards each other. I had a couple family members that I liked, which was was nice. Unfortunately john never did, his older brother hated him for some reason, and most of his family were shitty to him. He didn’t like to talk about that stuff though.
We were both pretty small growing up, and never exactly all that brave, but one time we were down by the pond in our town and there were a couple older kids picking on us, and one of them threw my bike in the pond and pushed me down. John picked up the biggest rock he could throw and lobbed it straight at the kids head, busting him open and actually making him cry. They ran off pretty quick after that. John picked me up and I nodded my thanks. He said “you know you’re the closest thing I have to family, I got you bro”. It meant a lot considering he never spoke about family related stuff.

I started sponsoring feeds on Shark_T4nk a couple years after finding it. I had a pretty well paying job at the time working as a coder for a tech company, as well as a bit of credit card fraud on the side, so I had plenty to spare. just watching was starting to get boring. The hours spent at that job felt like a horrible waste of time, but I knew I needed to grind through it to be able to afford to keep sponsoring Feeds. At this point I was just a base level contributor, I donated 750 usd to the funding pool which gave me rights to place low priority bids on what happens to the livestock and got me a silver star.
I did this for around a year, until I got a promotion and started making enough that I could finally spend more, much much more towards my now fully engulfing addiction. For around 1500 I got a gold star, top priority bids and access to a pov camera attached to the handlers (the guy doing the actual torturing) mask. For 2500 you got a green star, top bidding, pov cam, you get to choose some of the materials and tools used, and you can buy souvenirs taken from the victim (usually articles of clothing, personal belongings, sometimes teeth or skull fragments, even cuts of meat if you so desired and wanted to Fork up the cash for it, if you’ll excuse my pun) mailed to a P.O. box of your choosing. Those were the main levels that everyone bought into, but I wanted more.
The top level of sponsorship was extremely rare, ive watched almost every feed for the past couple years at this point and I had never seen one. Not once. It cost 15000 usd and with that you get the works, you get all the perks of the green star except you now have a purple star, you can choose all of the materials and tools used, what happens and when it happens, whether the video is private or for the whole group (private is an extra 5000), and best of all seeing you’re the only contributor you get to choose the Livestock. You can choose anyone you want, excluding public officials.
For the base level 15k purple star you can choose from their current lineup of livestock, you can see their stories, screen shots of their facebook pages with all of their friends and family members posts saying “we miss you” “we love you” and all that gushy shit. For 30,000 it can be anyone in the US. For 40,000 anyone in north America. For 100,000 anyone in the world. Apparently public officials can be chosen too, but those prices range from a million to 20 billion and costs 5,000 to 25,000 to even watch it and is reserved for VIP purple stars only (4 time purple sponsor).

As me and john got older we started gravitating more towards the world of drugs and music. Wed go to festivals in the summer and take ecstasy and acid and have a blast, and in the winter we’d do coke and and ketamine in my room listening to music on my dads record player. We never really had “problems” with drugs, we just enjoyed them. I was always kind of like a kid brother to john, even though he was only a couple years older than me, so he was a bit awkward about introducing me to the stuff at first, but I eventually talked him into it, and god damn am I glad he did.
To this day some of my best memories were of me and him rolling our faces off walking around outside in the rain with no shoes on; and seeing massive geometric patterns in the night sky on acid thinking we were talking to god, talking about the meaning of life and all of our deepest passions and fears. At this point we were without a doubt as thick as blood, we knew each other inside and out, but more importantly we trusted each other and that’s hard to come by in this life.

The first time I got to see a purple star next to my name was glorious. I decided to keep the video private, in celebration of my first time holding the reins. I chose this 30 year old French man from their stock, who was acquired thanks to its lack of knowledge on protecting its identity while browsing the Dark Web. The only tools and materials I picked were pliers, a kitchen knife, a ball peen hammer, and a drum of hydrochloric acid. First I had the handler grab the livestocks bottom lip and pull it down till it bled profusely, almost ripping it from its face, and smash its teeth in with the ball side of the hammer. The sound of his teeth breaking, like shattering plastc or ceramic, and his whimpering scream made me quiver with pure ecstasy (which I had taken a lot of 30 minutes prior to starting the Feed, obviously got it from john). As the .4 of pure MDMA that I took was just rushing in and my teeth started to grind I told the handler to crush his left testicle with the pliers.
He had a rough time of it too, it kept popping out from in between the jaws of the pliers. I had to settle for him holding it in place with his hand, blocking most of the good stuff from my view. At least I could still hear the scream and the squish. The Feed went on for another couple hours and it climaxed, around the same time and the same fashion as I did (for the third time), in a sticky puddle. The handler funneled acid down the livestocks throat, melting it from the inside out, along with part of the table. The sizzling, bubbling, gurgling sounds are still embedded in my memory, and still arouse me to this day.
Once every six months I would fully fund a Feed, usually just going for the pre caught livestock, but after a while even that got boring. I needed something better. More personal. I decided to spend the 30 grand on something special.

I had been hanging out with my friend John quite a bit in recent weeks, and when we weren’t hanging out we were texting each other almost constantly. one day he stopped replying to my texts entirely. I went to his house later that night and knocked, and his mom answered the door. “hello Mrs Doe!” I said to her, “is john here?”. “No, he isn’t hun, I just got home, haven’t seen him all day” she said with a polite smile. This wasn’t exactly out of the ordinary for him, john was still living with his parents technically but he spent most of his time away from the house hanging out with people, getting drunk and doing coke.

“Im sorry mrs doe, but could I run up to johns room for a second? I think I left my phone charger up there last night.”. “Of course dear, just make sure you take off your shoes before going up” after all these years she still reminded me to take my shoes off when I come in the house. She was a nice lady, a bit too much so, at least when people were watching. She spoiled the shit out of John growing up, that’s why he’s still living at his moms house, which she must deeply regret seeing how she treats him now.
I took my shoes off at the door, ran up the stairs and around the corner, opened the door to his room and shut it behind me. Looking around as quickly as I could, searching through mountains of trash and piles of comics and records, I found what I was looking for under the sheet next to his pillow. He had kept a journal ever since he was a kid, It was a small notebook with a light blue cover with a couple of fresh blood drops on it and a couple hundred pages of lined paper. I doubt he knew I, or anyone for that matter, knew about that book. What can I say? I get nosey when im fucked up. I tucked it under my shirt, pulled his phone charger out of the wall socket and headed back down stairs. “thanks Mrs Doe! Have a good night!” I said cheerily as I walked out the door and back to my car.
When I got home I opened the notebook up to the most recent page and turned back a few pages until I found what I was looking for

After reading the notebook I opened my laptop, set up all of my security (which takes about 5 minutes) and logged onto Shark_T4nk. I already received my conformation. this brought a smile to my face, I knew that the fun part was just around the corner. I felt like a teenager rushing home to watch porn.
I replied to the conformation with my conformation code
“Package secure” said one of the gold crowns (admins)
“Question. I’ve been a purple star for 4 years now. You know I’m not a narc or a casual, I’ve spent hundreds of thousands here. Is there any way I could do it myself this time? I would pay literally anything and go literally anywhere.”
20 minutes went by.
“Get a secured burner phone and text this number with your confirmation code. You will receive a location pin. Be there on February 24 at 2:00 am. Not a second later. Park at least a mile away and walk the rest of the way. The cost will be 1mil” he messaged back, along with a number.
When you reach VIP purple star status after 4 purple level sponsorships you receive and code, a string of sixteen random words in different languages, some letters replaced by numbers, some by symbols. I sent that code and the reply was almost instant, I clicked the link and it brought me to that phones map app. It was a 16 hour drive into the next state over. I knew it would be well worth every second and droplet of gas it took. Now I just had to wait 6 days, and let me tell you, they dragged by slower than a spoiled little kids week before Christmas.
I could barely contain myself that whole week, everyone at work was asking me what I was so excited about, I kept having to say I was going on vacation to Aruba for a few days and ended up getting the whole week off. John never came home the day I grabbed his notebook, My friends started asking if I had seen him. I hadn’t.
Eventually the week of waiting came to pass and it was time to hit the road. I was practically shaking too bad to drive, but I tried to contain myself. I felt like I was on a small dose of molly, but a bit more anxious. Not in the scared sense, in the excited sense. The 16 hours of driving went by surprisingly fast, I only stopped twice, once to piss and once to eat. I don’t remember
