I have a Logitech G15 keyboard with a built in LCD. It has an RSS ticker feature. That updates every couple seconds. It is easy to create any Sub Reddit into an RSS feed by adding, ".rss" at the end of any Sub Reddit address.

Fall of cryptocurrencies, rise of e-fiat currency?
Cryptocurrencies have been riding on some pretty rocky terrain lately and it remains to be seen what will happen should the first central bank-issued digital currency be launched. In fact, Sweden has voiced its desire to release a national digital currency in the next couple of years. Given the country’s gradual decline in cash usage, the Riksbank – Sweden’s central bank – is exploring this scenario. The e-krona, as they are expecting to call it, is being imagined as a tool that will play the same role as the tangible krona today: a currency that is independent of intermediaries, accessible to every citizen and usable for any type of payment regardless of its value. Sweden is not the only country that has been looking into the possibility of launching a digital version of the national currency. The Bank of England, the Bank of Canada and the Bank of Israel have all set up working groups to better understand the implications of such a project and to evaluate the utility and need. Although they are all still at an exploratory stage, this could eventually come as a blow to cryptocurrencies around the globe in an age where ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) seem to be the hottest product on the market. Bitcoin has certainly been facing some difficulties in the past week after South Korea announced the possibility of shutting down all cryptocurrency exchanges – news that caused Bitcoin’s value to plummet by 25%. A final decision is expected to be released today on their fate in the country that is to host this year’s winter Olympics. But regardless of the outcome, these drastic fluctuations are proving how volatile and unstable cryptocurrencies are, pushing many experts to wonder if they will ever become a substitute to regulated, legal tender currencies – fiat or digital. Even one of the world’s most admired investors, Warren Buffet, has made it clear that he and his investment firm have no intention of going in that direction as they [cryptocurrencies] “will come to a bad ending”. Software giant Microsoft and digital distribution platform Steam have also ceased to accept Bitcoin as a payment tool because of its “high fees and volatility”. So although there is now a lot of hype around the messaging app Telegram’s announcement of a soon-to-be-launched ICO – expected to be one of the biggest ever – it might be time to start wondering why a growing number of countries are counting on (or have already) imposing a number of restrictions and regulations on these anonymous and virtual “coins”. From China to Russia and now maybe even Korea, governments are cautious – and rightly so – about these “cryptos” who are looking less and less like a “currency” and more and more like a simple product of speculation.

It is backed by assets in the Libra Reserve (low-volatility assets, including bank deposits and government securities in currencies from stable and reputable central banks - dollar, pound, euro, Swiss franc and yen). Not as uniform as a directly-pegged stablecoin but not as volatile as a bitcoin.
Ideally this means the Libra holds a more stable valueas one currency/asset cannot drive it up or down.
No fixed supply of Libra. Based on number of users. Libra created when you cash in destroyed when cashed out
Initially will be used for low-cost fast money transfers. Useful for unbanked users (31% of world) in developing economies.
Facebook is running it and building it through end of the year. Plans to hand it over to the nonprofit Libra Association.""" """WHO'S RUNNING IT Libra Association - 28 partners Headquarters in Geneva, Sitzerland Includes Facebook's Calibra, Coinbase, Mastercard, Visa, eBay, PayPal, Stripe, Spotify, Uber, Lyft, Vodafone, Womens World Banking, and Kiva.
Committed to recruiting more members before launch (up to 100).
members must have a half rack of server space, a 100Mbps or above dedicated internet connection, a full-time site reliability engineer and enterprise-grade security.
Members get Libra Investment Tokens. Money from sales will be placed in low-risk assets with revenue supporting operating expenses and after that dividends.
Libra blockchain will be released under an Apache 2.0 license. Move programming language for apps.
Permissioned blockchain. Validator nodes run by association members but apps can be built on top of it. Plans to transition to proof-of-stake permissionless blockchain in five years from launch
fraction of a cent transaction cost to deter spam/DDoS attacks.
Libra blockchain will run 1,000 transactions per second (Bitcoin has 7 ethereum 15)
Testnet launched now.
Working with HackerOne on bug bounty system later this year."""
"""WHAT DOES FACEBOOK GET OUT OF IT? Facebook's Part - Calibra
Digital wallet inside Messenger and WhatsApp. Android and iOS apps to follow.
hacked or scammed money will be refunded through 24/7 chat
AND? Facebook’s VP of blockchain, David Marcus “If more commerce happens, then more small businesses will sell more on and off platform, and they’ll want to buy more ads on the platform so it will be good for our ads business.”
Calibra may also offer credit lines or investing options."
"""How PRIVATE IS IT? PRIVACY
-- anyone who signs up must share a government ID and other personal information.
Do not need a Facebook account to use Calibra.
Facebook promises not to source account info or data from Calibra without consumer consent.
Will not share data with third parties except for legal compliance or product performance (paying the person you're trying to pay involves sharing some info)
no sharing of info for ad targeting without permission. PERMISSION. So sharing contacts list with WhatsApp or Facebook seem to be likely ways Facebook will obtain that permission.
Appears opt in but ToS not written yet.
Calibra settles accounts on internal ledgers then records to Libra in aggregate. Prevents exposure of Calibra info to wider Libra blockchain. (You'll need to trust Clibra to keep that data safe)""" """BENEFITS
Money transfers are slow (2-3 days) and costly. Crypto transfers can be faster and low cost.
remittance services charge an average of 7%
Reduce transaction fees for sellers
Micropayments could become feasible without fees attached
merchant acceptance (providing rewards for signing up customers and keeping them - percentage cash back on purchases) Discounts for paying in Libra, cash back for # transactions/year etc.
Consumer use: Rewards programs on Facebook to build up free money?
"Avis de Patrick Beja: Ce n'est pas un produit Facebook. Totalement Open Source, FB n'a pas plus de contrôle sur le projet que les dizaines d'autres membres. Une monnaie virtuelle est une composante nécessaire de la prochaine évolution de Facebook déjà détaillée par Zuck : les ""super apps""." Quels sont vos avis & analyses ? Merci,
A service that sends you a text message when there is big Bitcoin news?
For example, if news that the ETF has been approved gets published, you immediately receive a text to your phone? Or Amazon accepting Bitcoin, etc. I don't want to miss a major price catalyst because I didn't happen to refresh Coindesk 50 times that day, so was looking to see if anything like this was available.
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.)
fedora-29-minimal: Base for the minimal VMs.
fedora-29-uni-persist: Template for uni-campus and uni-home AppVMs.
crypto: A work in progress VM for handling crypto transaction using cleansed Bitcoin and Monero.
printing: Exactly as it sounds like. It is firewalled to only be able to connect to the network printer on my home network.
sys-corridor: corridor is a Tor traffic whitelisting gateway that provides network to sys-whonix. It helps to provide an additional failsafe to defend against clearnet attacks.
sys-mirage-firewall: A version of the Mirage Unikernel to act as an extremely minimal and resource light firewall. It is configured to only allow connections to the individual IP addresses my VPN's WireGuard servers as well as a select few internal IP addresses on my home network (router, home server, and Pi-Hole).
uni-corridor: See sys-corridor for description. Provides network to uni-whonix.
sys-usb: USB stack isolation VM. Uses fedora minimal now.
uni-vpn-wg: A Uni ProxyVM for my VPN.
uni-net: A ProxyVM for all Uni-related domains. Based off fedora minimal.
uni-shared: Acts as an SMB network share for uni-campus and uni-home so that the documents and emails can be accessed easily between them.
fedora-29-dvm: Default disposable Fedora VM.
whonix-ws-15-dvm: Default disposable Whonix VM. This is where I do 95% of my online browsing.
calendar: Exactly as it's named. Has a firewall rule to only allow connections to posteo.de.
nas-access: Used to access my NAS and to watch content on it.
pihole-access: Used to access my Pi-Hole through Firefox. Has a firewall rule to only allow connections to its IP address.
router-access: Used to access my router through Firefox. Has a firewall so its only able to connect to 192.168.0.1.
personal: Personal domain. Used to check personal emails, read rss feeds, stream YouTube videos, and internet banking.
repos: Local copy of my repos. Has a firewall rule to only allow connections to the site hosting my git repo.
uni-anon-resarch: Research for Uni.
uni-campus: Domain for doing Uni work on campus.
uni-home: Domain for doing Uni work at home.
uni-whonix: Seperate Whonix gateway for Uni research.
offline-archive-manager: For managing the offline archives that I burn to DVDs.
personal-archive: Exactly as it's named.
sys-whonix: Default Whonix gateway ProxyVM.
vault: For storing GPG keys and other files.
vault-dvm: DVM with no internet access. The Vault VMs use this as their DisposableVM.
work-archive: Storing work archive documents (payslips, employment information, etc).
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.
Fundamental analysis: where do you get your Coin-related news from?
Being the first to learn about a critical piece of information just released is crucial to anticipate an imminent increase of drop of the market, and open positions accordingly. We had a great example of this last week with the arrest of the Bitinstant CEO and subsequent market drop. Those who heard about it early were able to open short positions that resulted in a nice profit. In your experience: what are the best, fastest, most reliable sources of information out there? Which ones do you use? Twitter? Troll-boxes? IRC? Dedicated websites? Thank you.
100% Bitcoin tech magazine with no price speculation - contributions welcome
Hi All, I have worked restlessly for months to put together http://bitcointechweekly.com, a tech magazine exclusively focused on Bitcoin. It is mainly dedicated to new developers and technical people and does not include any price speculation or ads and offers an RSS feed. I started diving into bitcoin technology last year and I missed having a news source that would give me in glimpse all updates on Bitcoin related technology without having to scroll through tons of click bait content and price speculation. Before starting this project there was no such source of news as the vast majority of good quality tech articles were posted on personal blogs, while the most popular crypto blogs and magazines include price talk, ICOs and such with tons of ads. I thought it was relevant to share here and would appreciate any feedback. We also have a Matrix room where you can leave your feedback or contributions. EDIT: There is now a newsletter available here
I made a profitable trade the other day but it was only because I closely follow the bitcoin forums and reddits. Are there any tools you guys use that serves up new content from these sources and others to your phone so you aren't constantly checking?
PSA: The flood of "Major companies (ATT, AMZN) accepting BTC" posts are misleading. DYOR.
TLDR Below. Ladies and Fellas, For the past several weeks, Reddit has been bombarded with ads from various "crypto news sources" claiming that companies like ATT and Amazon (Whole Foods) now accept Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency as forms of payment. The dream has come true! Or has it? The method and message these processors are communicating to us is tremendously false and misleading: First of all, it is important to know that many of these "Crypto News Sites" are pay for play. The articles are written up by special interests (a wallet, a company, etc.), a fee is paid to the "news website," and the article is then posted as news on their feed. It can then appear in the apps we use to track coin prices, RSS feeds, and other avenues of access to the general public under what people assume is "news." These posts are expensive, which explains the massive shill effort taking place. Now, lets use Bitpay as an example as they have been among the most prevalent in this practice and the most aggressive that I have personally conversed with. Bitpay is a payment processor, similar to Visa or MasterCard, however Bitpay specifically allows payments in Cryptocurrency, in conjunction with whatever else they offer. When the shillers tell you that ATT or Whole Foods will provide you with a QR code and you send payment to them, the payment address actually belongs to Bitpay, who for a small fee then converts your Bitcoin / Cryptocurrency to fiat and pays the major company in fiat. At no point does ATT, Amazon, or any of these large companies actually handle your Bitcoin. They do not accept Bitcoin or Cryptocurrency at all. The processor does, and these processors are trying to make it seem as if the major retailers do. That is what really grinds my gears. Many of us are looking forward to the day that OUR actual Bitcoin will be accepted as payment because this act not only validates one of many use cases for Bitcoin, but also signifies a real world functionality for our wallets - introducing a much larger scale of adoption and societal acceptance. These "fake news" sites and posts mislead us to believe that this time has come. It has not. Hopefully one day, but like Arya said "not today." At no point do any of these companies handle or even deal with Bitcoin or Cryptocurrency. Yes, technically, you can send your Bitcoin to an address and have your bill or statement paid off, but it is not via actual Bitcoin acceptance by one of these major companies. It is via a payment processor who will most likely charge you a small fee (on top of marginalizing the conversion price by a few %) for converting your Bitcoin to fiat and then paying off your bill in fiat. The simple fact that these companies have been trying so hard to make us believe that our Bitcoin is accepted in the manner which they are should be a red flag in and of itself! Some people may not mind, saying "cool, I can send my Bitcoin to an address and my balance with a major company will be marked as paid." Thats your business and your freedom to do what you want with your $. Others like myself, feel like these processors are communicating false information making it seem like Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency are accepted at 100's of major retailers when in fact fiat is the only thing they do and ever have accepted. This campaign is a grey area lie (for lack of a better term) and it is misleading and untrue. Be careful and DYOR. TL/DR: The past few weeks, various post have flooded this space claiming Fortune 500 companies and major retailers now accept Bitcoin. They do not and this is a deceiving and misleading statement. ATT and Amazon accept fiat, and these shady processors are trying to fool us into thinking major retailers accept Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency. They accept fiat only at this point. The processors accept our BTC, convert it to fiat, and pay the retailers in fiat. There is no translational increase in adoption or social awareness by any major retailer. Don't get fooled. DYOR.
