Bitcoiners' efforts to put Bitcoin back on Wikipedia, 2010

On July 30, 2010, the Bitcoin article on Wikipedia was deleted, and it took until December to restore it. "No notable third-party coverage" was the main reason for deletion. Yes, there was a time when Bitcoin wasn't even being used by drug-dealers, so there weren't great stories for the press. Frustratingly, the Bitcoin Wikipedia page had existed since March 8, 2009, and by July 2010 it had been refined and polished to the point where it seemed to have met Wikipedia standards. More frustrating about the deletion, perhaps, was that Bitcoin was not easy to comprehend in July 2010, so a Wikipedia article was critical to helping bitcoin adoption. Without it, how else were you to tell your friends, taxi drivers and parents what it really was?
On August 4 of 2010, the outcry was great enough from the community at bitcointalk that the Bitcoin page on Wikipedia was put up for deletion review. However the page's deletion was upheld. Then when bitcoiners lobbied for another deletion review in September the deletion was once again upheld.
The main reason for keeping it deleted in each instance was the lack of notable, credible sources. One of the wiki editors said "The message to Bitcoin's supporters is: you would be better spending your energy in writing articles about it and getting them published in some reliable industry journals (i.e. those with enough editorial control to be accepted here as reliable sources). When you have achieved that, you can cite them as references and there will be no problem here. Your mistake is to try to use Wikipedia as the start of your promotion campaign - that's not what it's for."
Fair enough! Bitcoiners at the time were using bitcoin-related sources as their "credible sources", and wiki editors weren't falling for it. Eight out of eight citations on the June 2010 Wikipedia page were from bitcoin.org.
Here's another brief interaction between non-deletion user "Em3rgent0rdr" and glacier expert (and wiki deletionist) Polargeo:
There are now close to 5 million bitcoins, and at the current exchange rate of ~$0.22 USD/bitcoin, that means approx $1,100,000 USD worth of bitcoins exist in the bitcoin economy. This is significant. --Em3rgent0rdr
My uncle has a house worth more than that. Do you think his house should have a page on wikipedia? Polargeo
I understand Polargeo's point, but I've always taken a guilty satisfaction in knowing that Bitcoin's market cap has eclipsed the value of his uncle's house.
Eventually coverage from The Irish Times, Lew Rockwell and PCWorld put enough independent journalistic credibility into bitcoin, that the third deletion review came back with a Restore decision. The conservative crew at Wikipedia gave this warning before restoring the page: "if restored, protect immediately from new users-this one is a crapmagnet".
Take a deeper look at the Bitcoin Wikipedia page's stats, you'll see lots of work put in (for no miner's reward!). 2,452 editors and over 13,000 total revisions. If you're a Bitcoin Wikipedia editor, I'd love to hear from you in the comments below.

Explain Lightning Network's privacy and its hops?

Been researching mixers lately as a way to "untie" some kyc'd bitcoin, or at least add decent plausible deniability.. I stumbled upon an interesting thread about lightning network and its privacy but Im having a hard time understanding how LN tx's look, start to finish, on the blockchain. First of all how do the hops work? Are they something u have to enable or is it standard for every LN tx?
Either way Im curious how this scenario would look to the chainalysis villians: BTC is in non LN wallet now, I send full amount to a LN wallet, send 1/4 of total amount to 4 diff LN wallets, then from the LN wallets I send to 4 diff BTC accounts on a Ledger (never mixing UTXO's).
How would this method look on the blockchain once its said and done? Would prying eyes see it as: Wallet A sends 1btc -> wallet B (LN) sends .25btc -> wallets C,D,E,F (LN) send .25btc -> wallets G,H,I,J?
If this is the case then it seems using LN isn' necessary for my needs, except maybe saving some fees?

Warning: Blockchain difficulty adjustment affecting price movements

Below are notable difficulty adjustments when hash rate fell and block times become slower for Bitcoin.
  1. 26 Mar 2020 [difficulty adjustment -15.95%, avg block time 11min 54secs]. On the 28th price crashed from $6674 to $6138 ( -8%).
  2. 8 Nov 2019 [difficulty adjustment -7.1%, avg block time 10min 46secs]. On the same day price crashed from $9234 to $8783 ( -4.88%).
  3. The next big adjustment was around Nov to Dec 2018 and there were 3 big adjustments with high block times.

Current situation:
We are 1 day 10 hours from the next difficulty adjustment. Projected difficulty adjustment is -5.61% (https://fork.lol/pow/retarget), which could indicate a small dip. However, take note that the date of last adjustment was the 5th and the 3rd halving was on the 11th, between the 5th to the 11th there was increased hashrate from miners trying to mine the final week of 12.5btc that offset the really slow block times after the halving. Therefore it will be the next difficulty adjustment after the one on the 20th that will completely reflect the slower block times after the halving. Currently the median block time taken on the 17th was around 14min (-28.5% difficulty adjustment).
For people who do not understand blockchain, basically with the Bitcoin 3rd halving, mining profitability fell for a lot of miners and they probably turned off their miners therefore the blockchain mining time became considerably slower which is reflected with slow transaction speed and higher fees as seen currently. Bitcoin sellers moving their BTC from wallet to an exchange are faced with slow transaction speed and therefore the sell pressure of BTC fell considerably which will attribute to the current price increase. There is a correlation between sell pressure and blockchain congestion (the size of the correlation is undetermined).
There is going to be a race. A race between BTC price hiking high enough to attract more miners to reduce avg block times versus the closing window of roughly 2 weeks before the next difficulty adjustment. If the price does not jump high enough, the next difficulty adjustment in the first week of June could signal a huge dip.
I am not an expert. I just did some research on the above and wanted to share with fellow Bitcoin compatriots so that we can tread with caution and not lose our shirts. I do not plan to short BTC but I will exit my BTC positions if I expect double digit negative difficulty adjustment in early June.
Please visit the original post here https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/gm23pe/warning_blockchain_difficulty_adjustment/
There are pictures in the original post as well as 2nd halving evidence with pics. I could not post pics here. If possible please upvote the original post, a lot of people downvote it. Not sure why people downvote it, maybe veterans attempting to hide information from newcomers to fleece them of their shirt.

Update 1:>! As of writing, I have opened a small short position on Bitcoin. Stop loss around 10k, estimated take profit around 8500. The reason is because the difficulty adjustment in the next 20 hours, even though is just -5% roughly is still significant. I direct you to look into all the difficulty adjustments in the last 2 years and you will know how rare it is. The ones I caught were all listed at the very top of the post. Since it is my first time shorting BTC, I take this as a learning opportunity so that I will have some experience to face the bigger difficulty adjustment in the first week of June. Analysis into execution, even in failure I am happy.!<
Update 2: The difficulty adjustment (DA) happened roughly 6 hours ago and the sell pressure from -6% DA did not seem to be affecting the market much. However, please take a look now at the estimation for the next DA.
On https://bitcoin.clarkmoody.com/dashboard/ it is estimated to be -25%.
On https://fork.lol/pow/retarget estimated to be -18%.
On https://www.blockchain.com/charts/median-confirmation-time the median block time for the last day was 16.8min.
My original proposition that the true DA of the halving can only be realized in the next DA stands and that it will be considerable. The increased sell pressure from that DA will be highly significant. That is why there is a race by current miners to get the BTC price up high enough to attract more miners to not have the DA drop too much.
Update 3: Current BTC price at $9100 ( ~39 hours after DA). Then again BTC could have dropped from all sorts of reason. However the coincidence with the DA and with all the past DA is just too high to simply shrug off as irrelevant. Anyways past result cannot predict future ones, stay safe with the trading. Will no longer check on this post.

big miners make BTC blockchain stalled intentionally?

I've been monitoring BTC chain last 2 weeks and found something interesting. When blocks are solved, they would be solved pretty fast, mostly under 7 minutes. But when the chain stops moving, time to solve a block is around 20 minutes to 45 minutes.
I know everything can happen in terms of probability, but this happened quite often, so I don't believe it's not an intentional action. There're 2 main reasons that most miners may decide to "rest" at a specific time:
- Make all transactions stuck, so people have to increase their fees (if they are in hurry). Last 2 weeks, there were at least 2-3 times mempool reached 25k transactions (excluded the time when BTC surpass $10k) and the fees were insane.
- Make the diff remain "low" enough. So they can maintain a good revenue/electricity_cost ratio. Assumes when they stop mining BTC, they switch to other coins.
By one action, they'll have better rewards on the next few blocks and don't change the diff of next epoch.
It's kinda a type of game theory that when you stop mining BTC at a specific time you have to be sure other miners stop mining BTC too. My gut feeling is telling me that it's true. Because speaking of a long-term plan for mining bitcoin, this strategy is the best.

Bitcoin 2nd halving evidence:

2nd halving falls between the 5th and the 19th adjustment so it is only reflected on the 3rd of Aug difficulty adjustment ( -5.43%).

See the dip on the 3rd of August. Price fell from $600 to $533 about 11% drop.

Hashrate increase after the halving?!

At block 630000 we were 51 blocks ahead in the difficulty epoch and now we are 54 blocks ahead. Seems like the hashrate hasn't dropped at all and it's continuing the rate which will lead to a difficulty increase.
Doesn't anyone find this surprising? I was expecting at least a 10% drop in hashrate due to the old miners being turned off. This means that practically all miners were having a 50% profit margin before the halving. Has electricity used for mining become cheaper than the already low 5 cents/kW? Could have most miners shorted bitcoin at $10k to hedge themselves from price and halving?

[Q] VAR and Impulse Response Analysis correctly applyed on Cryptocurrency Trading Rates? I have several questions that came up during the process

Hey everyone,
I want to look deeper into how cryptocurrencies influence each other and set up a VAR Model with R including the daily closing prices of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple and CRIX (Crypto Index).
https://imgur.com/a/DZxfnYM
I use diff() and log() to make them stationary which is confirmed by ADF- and KPSS-Tests.
https://imgur.com/a/QtjGOLy
Now I need to select the lag p.
lag.p<-VARselect(all.ts.s, lag.max = 100, type = "none", season = NULL, exogen = NULL)
which gives me:
$selection 
AIC(n) HQ(n) SC(n) FPE(n) 5 3 2 5
Since SC has a better performance on large sample sizes I first off go for p=2 and compute the model:
all.ts.s.model <- VAR(all.ts.s, p = 2, type = "none")
This gives me plots like this one for Bitcoin:
https://imgur.com/a/xMem4C7
[Q1] Now here ist my first question. How does the VAR function select the lag parameters? Is it based on the PACF Residuals or does it just go for t-1 and t-2 if we have p=2?
And the following summary:

As we can see only the crix estimation has a 'good' fit.
[Q2] Can I remove parameters that are not significant from this to improve the estimation? Can you think of something else for further improvements?
Now I start with the Impulse Response Analysis.
all.ir <- irf(all.ts.s.model, n.ahead = 8, ortho = FALSE, runs = 1000)
This gives us the following for Bitcoin:
https://imgur.com/a/UHqlinI
[Q3] How do I interpret this correctly? Since we "diff-logged" the time series in the beginnig, do we have to undo this step? As I see it: A poitive change of one diff-logged standard deviation of bitcoin would result in a change of 0.6 diff-logged standard deviation of the crix index after one day. Is that correct?
[Q4] Now the following is something I apparently need to do but haven't really understood why and if the Impulse response we did previously is invalid?
Variance-covariance matrix:

Since the off-diagonal elements of the estimated variance-covariance matrix are not zero, we can assume that there is contemporaneous correlation between the variables in the VAR model. This is confirmed by the correlation matrix, which corresponds to:
 btc eth xrp crix btc 1.0000000 0.5077740 0.3794435 0.5363991 eth 0.5077740 1.0000000 0.3382712 0.3244595 xrp 0.3794435 0.3382712 1.0000000 0.2500460 crix 0.5363991 0.3244595 0.2500460 1.0000000 
Therefore we need to decompose the variance-covariance matrix to a lower triangular matrix with positve diagonal elements:

[Q5] This is done automaticly if we set ortho=TRUE within the ifr function, is that correct?
all.oir <- irf(all.ts.s.model, n.ahead = 8, ortho = TRUE, runs = 1000, seed = 12345)
which gives us for bitcoin:

[Q6] Now the effect on the crix index after one day is just 0.02. Thats a massive difference and I wonder how to deal with this.

What do you guys think? Is my method overall correct? I'm gratefull for any advice! Cheers and all the best

[Q] VAR and Impulse Response Analysis correctly applyed on Cryptocurrency Trading Rates? I have several questions that came up during the process

Hey everyone,
I want to look deeper into how cryptocurrencies influence each other and set up a VAR Model with R including the daily closing prices of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple and CRIX (Crypto Index).
https://imgur.com/a/DZxfnYM
I use diff() and log() to make them stationary which is confirmed by ADF- and KPSS-Tests.
https://imgur.com/a/QtjGOLy
Now I need to select the lag p.
lag.p<-VARselect(all.ts.s, lag.max = 100, type = "none", season = NULL, exogen = NULL)
which gives me:
$selection AIC(n) HQ(n) SC(n) FPE(n) 5 3 2 5 
Since SC has a better performance on large sample sizes I first off go for p=2 and compute the model:
all.ts.s.model <- VAR(all.ts.s, p = 2, type = "none")
This gives me plots like this one for Bitcoin:
https://imgur.com/a/xMem4C7
[Q1] Now here ist my first question. How does the VAR function select the lag parameters? Is it based on the PACF Residuals or does it just go for t-1 and t-2 if we have p=2?
And the following summary:

As we can see only the crix estimation has a 'good' fit.
[Q2] Can I remove parameters that are not significant from this to improve the estimation? Can you think of something else for further improvements?
Now I start with the Impulse Response Analysis.
all.ir <- irf(all.ts.s.model, n.ahead = 8, ortho = FALSE, runs = 1000)
This gives us the following for Bitcoin:
https://imgur.com/a/UHqlinI
[Q3] How do I interpret this correctly? Since we "diff-logged" the time series in the beginnig, do we have to undo this step? As I see it: A poitive change of one diff-logged standard deviation of bitcoin would result in a change of 0.6 diff-logged standard deviation of the crix index after one day. Is that correct?
[Q4] Now the following is something I apparently need to do but haven't really understood why and if the Impulse response we did previously is invalid?
Variance-covariance matrix:
 btc eth xrp crix btc 0.0016320844 0.001307606 0.0010312328 0.0006703629 eth 0.0013076059 0.004063220 0.0014505695 0.0006398030 xrp 0.0010312328 0.001450569 0.0045256047 0.0005203659 crix 0.0006703629 0.000639803 0.0005203659 0.0009569768 
Since the off-diagonal elements of the estimated variance-covariance matrix are not zero, we can assume that there is contemporaneous correlation between the variables in the VAR model. This is confirmed by the correlation matrix, which corresponds to:
 btc eth xrp crix btc 1.0000000 0.5077740 0.3794435 0.5363991 eth 0.5077740 1.0000000 0.3382712 0.3244595 xrp 0.3794435 0.3382712 1.0000000 0.2500460 crix 0.5363991 0.3244595 0.2500460 1.0000000 
Therefore we need to decompose the variance-covariance matrix to a lower triangular matrix with positve diagonal elements:
> t(chol(all.ts.s.model_summary$covres)) btc eth xrp crix btc 0.04039906 0.000000000 0.000000000 0.00000000 eth 0.03236723 0.054914313 0.000000000 0.00000000 xrp 0.02552615 0.011369686 0.061194366 0.00000000 crix 0.01659353 0.001870487 0.001234266 0.02601172 
[Q5] This is done automaticly if we set ortho=TRUE within the ifr function, is that correct?
all.oir <- irf(all.ts.s.model, n.ahead = 8, ortho = TRUE, runs = 1000, seed = 12345)

Fear and Loathing in Monerujo

Try to sit at the "cool kids" table ONE time...and I drop my square shaped pizza down the front of my Bitcoin shirt.
Same story, diff post. Monerujo wallet: created about 24hrs ago. Carefully written out seed: carelessly destroyed. Password (crazypass?): frankly, I swore I'd remember it and moi? Bungle a new wallet recovery backup in careless, unnecessary haste?? Never. Alas, here I am dudebros.
TL;DR
What I don't have: password, recovery seed, coronavirus
What I do have: wallet access, my thumb(print), all three files, initial tx info, jokes
I really thought had the pass right in my noggin. What chars are allowed for this in Monerujo? Letters, numbers, symbols (ohmai)? Might help me narrow down possibilities knowing this. The 3 files...any use to me w/o the pw or seed?
I kid, I always kid...but this does suck. Nobody likes learning the hard way. On the plus side, I finally took a legit look at this fine crypto (after I borked it). Long overdue and I like the atmosphere of the XMR subs, too. Lite on the moonbound lambos, heapin' portions of fungibility. I dig it. Still, tho: "Satoshi Nakamoto, I wanna have yo BAYbees!"
Greatly appreciate any who might decipher relevant info from the preceding syntax mashup and offer more (or less) coherent advice.

Just read on an undisclosed Subreddit

that they envision for BSV to go back to the original diff adjustment. They hope for it to be sooner than later. Yes, please do it. Just imagine a troll miner with majority hash mines it for 2 weeks, diff skyrockets and afterwards he leaves. BSV would lead not only with weather data written on chain but with the highest Blocktime of any bitcoin forks, businesses sure will like that.

Who buy RCs??

Yo I wonder if any yalls slang RCs? Such a way to come up. I be pressin xans and have a China connect for the longest. Just load up Bitcoin send that shit over pack in the mail on the way. 2-FDCK is the new one. This shit hit like Ket and they done even no the diff. Shit changed my life.

Just a question

Is mining City scam or good to invest in? Its a company related to btc.com Mining best supplies it with machines and these stuff Managers are real people and have done alot of conferences in diff parts of world even Africa They launched a new currency called bitcoin vault
submitted by XxAxxZxX to Bitcoin [link] [comments]

Am I wrong or no? - Serious

Let’s say cost of bitcoin mining is $5k per coin
Part 1: Balanced price
Price goes little below 5k - some miners turn off - Some miners off - difficulty adjusts, cheaper to mine - Easier to mine - miners turn on - Miners Turn on - we’re back at $5k/per coin because miners push price to break even point
Part 2: Halvening After halvening cost per minted coin goes to $10k
How stupid this logic sounds? What am I missing?

Is it easy to use and store XMR on a HW wallet for non tech users yet?

XMR is the only other besides Bitcoin that I REALLY like. I'm checking in to see if the UI/UX has gotten any better over the past year.
If like to pick up a good amount, especially at these prices, but I just can't justify doing this and leaving it on the exchange.
What are my options for self custody with XMR if I have 3 different HW wallets from diff manufacturers and feel very comfortable using the BTC chain, but don't feel comfortable running a node or doing multisig?
I'd like a set and forget it option ( preferably HW eager with a seed over a paper wallet).

Advertising for Escorts post backpage

This is general advice and my opinions They are based on many years of experience. ... and to be CLEAR, I am in no way affiliated with any of the sites running today or mentioned here. I don't make ANY money from them... I could care less if you take the advice or shit all over it. This is not an advertisement for any one site... It is my opinions based on my experiences in this industry. I have made a LOT of money in the industry, and made a lot of other people a lot of money. There are good and bad things about every site out there, some I recommend here, others I will shit on, but I make nothing, own nothing, am not affiliated with any of them.
I have often been asked a LOT of questions by people looking for advertising and website help. I decided this was the best way to answer all the questions and help the community.
I hope you can learn something from this that helps you as you advertise or even better keeps you safe..
I worked for backpage for a long time, I helped start the bitcoin payment side of the site, I also helped start one of the backpage replacements. I have consulted on 2 other clone site startups, and to top it all off.. I owned a escort agency on the east coast from 2003 to 2011.
I owned my agency with 2 partners, I kinda fell into it. They needed computer help, I was a computer and marketing guy.
SO through all of that I am pretty sure I know a LOT about advertising for sex workers and the industry in general.
For Escorts and sexworkers things are very different in today’s post backpage.com and SESTA/FOSTA world. These changes and new laws are having serious effects on advertising adult services.
Here are a list of things to consider: Many of us remember Escorts.com, and Craigslist. Those were really the only places a SWr needed advertise. A simple $5 ad on Craiglsist could make an advertisers phone ring for days. A single ad on escorts.com could fill a schedule for weeks. Then Eros got big, it became as good if not better than escorts.com quickly, most often attracting the most quality clients.
Our Agency's used all 3, escorts., eros. and CL. At the time backpage was a shit site we didn't bother with... there were a FEW other sites we listed links to our own websites on, like southerngfe.com or openadultdirectory.com and a few others... more for SEO than anything else... they didn't bring much.. CL was all we needed. ECCIE was not big at all in our region then, so we never really used them.
Then it all started to change… CL took down the Adult services section. Escorts.com was raided and shuttered.
Backpage became king. I remember people paying just .25 cents to post an ad for a week on BP, then just days after CL closed it was $3? I had started working for Village Voice by then as a consultant, and was there when CL closed...
I got calls from my partners... usually by 1pm we had booked a few calls in each city (we were in 3) and had taken several dozen calls asking prices... we had booked ZERO that day and taken less than 5 calls... ALL from our website and google searches... our CL ads had not made phones ring once... they kept testing the phones... they all worked.
Then word came through from my office at BP that CL had pulled the plug... they put a big "CENSORED" label over the adult services tab... a few days later it was gone.
After the smoke cleared, there was only a few places you really needed to be on... cityguidex.com, eros.com, ECCIE (in certain regions) and backpage. That was it.
THere were a few other sites... and they were more regional... this is 2010/2011 I am talking about...
The only place a escort REALLY needed to post an ad was backpage… if another site popped up, the rule of thumb was simple… if no other SW’s are posting there… don’t bother… its not worth it.
Now lets be honest.. there are advertisers that could make a very nice living and book a lot of calls from just backpage... and there are the ones that would never could never... These were advertisers that had their own sites, charged upwards of 500/hr and did the fly me to you type stuff...
very few advertisers doing 150h/h calls off backpage have websites... we all know what I am talking about if you have been around at all.
During this time for the most part , Agency's in most citys started going out of business...
this was for a few reasons... 1. the yellow pages DIED! Smart phones KILLED the yellow pages. NO ONE USES A PHONE BOOK ANYMORE!! It cost a min of $10k up front to put even a small ad in the yellow pages... the agency's that could and did had ruled the escort world since the 80's... if you were a sexworker you worked for an agency because you couldn't get calls otherwise...(generally speaking)
suddenly CL and other sites like it made it so ANYone with a cell phone could run their own agency, or even better, go "independent"
And the indys and the independents and the internet sites like CL and backpage killed the agency's.
Clients looked at the math like this... lets say an agency charged $200/hr... the girl was usually getting a 50/50 split, so she took 100. They would then "charge" a tip of an avg of $100... so the girl got 200, the agency 100.. and the guy was out 300... but that same girl could post an ad saying 175/hr with NO upsell... and although yea... she made 25 less... she would book 10 times the calls and not have to split shit... guys wanted to deal direct to save and get more "bang" for their buck.. (pardon the pun)
So the internet was suddenly swamped with independents... at about the same time CL was king and then died... it was a crazy time... suddenly all these independents need a place to advertise, because its back to the agency's (pimps in a lot of cases) if they cant get calls... very few were gonna start their own websites, and if they did... how do they drive traffic? Backpage filled the void. ECCIE grew as did a few other sites
Again, I was working with them by now... and it was retarded. "Craigslist alternative" was one of the top google searched terms in the WORLD in sept 2010 when CL closed... think about that.
Of course BP starts charging more... and more... and more. They offered more features.. charging for all of them... and now it was a crazier time... all the other sites are either crap or being shut down. Eros was super expensive, and wanted your DL licence and more...
SO BP was king! But we all remember how that went... and come April of 2018.. BP is gone, and then the real shitshow started.
Bedpage.com, Onebackapge.com, Ibackpage.com Ebackpage.com backpage.cl the site I helped start with the backpagecredits.com guys was yesbackpage.com, then skipthegames.com cityguidex.com slixa.com tryst.link there was some gator site out of Australia, afterdarkads.com, eros.com had a knock off.. DOZENS of sites and I cant remember how many others have popped up and died in the past year... its been insane. I consulted on afterdarkads.com for payment systems, and they are doing great. Others are dying. ECCIE is doing better than ever
And ALL of the rules you thought you knew about advertising are gone.
Since the demise of backpage, there are literally dozens of sites popping up all jockeying to be the next backpage. The truth is… it will never happen. Some will have more success than others, some will fold, some will remain… but the new reality is there are now be dozens of places to advertise. I helped the girl making verified vixens... she has already shut down for a few months because she is underfunded and cant market the site right. (she says she will be back... it was a GREAT site)
The rule of thumb was that if you saw a site that you could advertise on, and there was no one else in your city/region... dont bother. ESPECIALLY if you had to pay...
So now, when you find a new site, and there is just a few ads you figure are fake there… should you ignore it and move on?
NO! advertising today is a different animal. An advertiser needs to have as many ads up in as many places as possible… and most importantly, needs to think and act like a client.
We here in the industry knew an hour after backpage closed… we were searching for alternatives immediately. There are clients out there that look for an escort maybe 1 time a year on vacation, or the guy that found his regular SW’r on backpage 2 years ago… and now is looking for a new one… they are searching for “backpage alternative” or “backpage replacement” (according to google analytics those are the TOP search terms related to sex work and backpage since April 2018) they are searching craiglslist personals replacement, or "new backpage" ...
You need to be on the sites that come up in those results, EVEN IF THERE IS NO ONE ELSE SMART ENOUGH TO POST AN AD THERE!!! The clients are searching using those terms…and dozens of others, and they are browsing the links they find… and they are not finding you! Why is that? You are not thinking like a client… you found bedpage… saw there was a ton of ads… and figured that if everyone else is posting there… I should as well. Bedpage used a bot to crawl backpage in the weeks before it closed, and copy/pasted the majority of ads it found to bedpage… MANY advertisers report getting calls and finding their ads posted on bedpage… and they did not create an account or post. MOST of the ads you are PAYING to compete with are fake... clients know it.. they are moving on from those sites FAST.
Sites like bedpage use to be having lots of success… they had a LOT of posts, and word got around to advertisers fast… BUT THE CLIENTS DIDN’T GET THE WORD! Yes, dedicated sex mongers that search for escorts daily know… and the guys that spend time on the boards and in forums know.. but the MAJORITY of clients are the guys that MIGHT call one or 2 times a year… they have never heard of usasexguide.nl or the otherboards.com… they are doing something simple… typing in backpage… finding its gone… then going to google, and typing “backpage alternative”.
And here is the next issue, Bedpage, ebackpage, ibackpage, yesbackpage… they all have a similar problem, they attract the WORST customers. The calls and texts looking for a $50 blow and go all come from sites like them. The guys that DO crawl through the dozens and dozens of fake ads end up just blasting texts to every phone they find (even tho you said no texts in the ad) 3 am msgs that say "hey" or even worse.. "blow me in my car for 50$" after demanding pics to "prove" you are real...
Advertisers today need to get on as many sites as they can. Get on all of them... ESPECIALLY the ones with hardly any ads. The unfortunate byproduct will be you will get those shitty messages.. part of the price you must pay for being in this industry...
Here is why: 1. Branding... Most of these clients are searching on dozens of sites for an escort... if they see you on afterdarkads.com, AND on tryst, AND then on eros., then AGAIN when they kick back to afterdarkads.com, AND then AGAIN when they find slixa.com ... and THEN they FINALLY decide to book.. was it really the ad on slixa that really did it? Or the fact they saw you everyplace and it helped him know you are real, not a fake ad? Was it the ease of finding your ad on a site like afterdarkads.com because they only had to sort through 5 or 6 ads? What was it that made him book? Do you REALLY think having just ONE ad on bedpage, because that's where everyone posts is the best idea? It was because he saw you over and over he was BRANDED and eventually booked.
Branding is this, what do you clean your ears with? NO, not q-tips... its a cotton swab, you have been branded. WHat do you blow your nose with? NO, not kleenex... its a tissue... you are branded. Whats "The best part of wake-ing up.......? its WHAT in your cup... yea.. its coffee.. but you just said Folgers... BRANDING... get in front of ALL the clients as often as possible... BRAND them to think of you when they think of an escort.
The MAJORITY of clients are searching for an escort or hire escorts just a few times a year... they have never heard of all these sites the way we have... a few years ago 1 ad on one site was all you needed... now escorts need 30 ads on 10 sites. Its the way it is.
  1. Simple odds... there are 20+ new sites online... if you are on just 3 of them.. what are your odds that perfect client looking for a girl/guy just like you finds you? Be on all 20 and your odds are much better. There are plenty of clients seeking a sexworker or escort that are only finding escort sites like afterdarkads.com or slixa.com , etc right now for the first time... and in most cities there are just 1 or 2 ads... the bigger cities a few more... if you posted a free ad on there last week.. that you didn't even need bump or pay to feature... he WILL find you... BUT, if you are not there... he will end up moving on, maybe even searching a dozen other sites with barley any posts... maybe give up, search for an agency... go to a strip club book your competition.. who knows. What I DO know is that every time you post an ad on another site... you increase your odds dramatically that you are found. REMEMBER, these clients don't know all the sites... who knows what site they will end up on. And if you are NOT on the ones they find.. there is 1000% chance they call you.
A great way to booking more is to get a website. There are a lot of VERY inexpensive ways to post one.. many advertisers cant or don't have the resources or ability's... be very careful with the services promising escort websites for money.
I am happy to walk you through some easy free steps that can get you on the right path, I will also build a simple free site, just cover the cost, The hosting I recommend will cost you about $10/month, the domain registration and privacy will be about $25 a year, for under $50 I will put a basic site online for you , and show you how to modify it and post to it form your phone. I want nothing for it... I am happy to help anyone in this industry. just PM me. Once you have one.. .LIST YOUR ESCORT WEBSITE ON ALL THE ESCORT SITES!
Another thing to beware of, MANY reports claim that bedpage, aka ebackpage, aka, ibackpage, aka, onebackpage, aka icracker aka yesbackpage (all the same few guys in India and Bangladesh) have all been known to of given access to advertiser accounts to law enforcement resulting in several arrests. Escorts in NY, TX, and Co all report the same thing, when they were arrested, LE had access to their ad account, showing IP’s they posted from (leading one agency to the actual incall location they also posted ads from) payment methods and more. Be CAREFUL with what you post... use a VPN, do NOT use any payment method that can be connected to you, Tryst has a secure system it looks like and you can use btc or gift cards. Most of the other sites accepting credit/debit cards are at risk... if you are paying with a CC, GET A GIFT CARD like vanilla visa and pay cash for it... afterdarkads.com uses a payment site called adacredits.com and allows payment via many ways that hide your identity like gift cards, Bedpage does something similar but I worry its out of india... but do NOT use your personal amazon acct to buy an amazon card to buy credits from any escort advertisement site. Don't use your CC to buy a best buy card or target card to get an ad on bedpage. . If a site is asking for you to use a debit credit card, or worse upload an ID as proof of anything, you are taking a HUGE risk. eventually a lot of these sites are gonna get raided or closed. or hacked... ( I see rumors yesbackpage just got hacked by one of the owner siddiqs little jerkoff programmers thiefs... lol) whatever info they have stored is all sitting there waiting to be exploited. BE CAREFUL
Use a VPN... ALWAYS. If you cant, get a burner smart phone from Walmart through straight talk.. DO NOT sign into your personal FB on that phone, or your reg email... you want that phone and everything on it to NEVER have any attachment to who you are. pay cash for it all and to reup monthly. INSTALL A VPN if you can. Ask for help here on how to do it.. your safety and freedom depend on this.
Its not just the gov you are hiding from... its clients that have tech backgrounds. I will promise you.. there are VERY few advertisers out there, that if I wanted to, I could get your real name, address, phone, birth-date, and MUCH more. There are THOUSANDS of people out there like me... Laugh if you want but its true. At least I am a decent guy, I don't see sexworkers myself, not that I find anything wrong with it at all.. I am safe, you dont need worry about me, But we all know there are PLENTY of weirdos out there that will stalk you, harass you, and then there are the ones that want to hurt you. Yea, the gov will use your information to arrest you or fuck with you... but those scumbags are killers that will rape you and stick you in a dumpster... BE CAREFUL. BE SAFE. BE SMART.
YOU NEED TO BE ADVERTISING A LOT AND OFTEN!!! Those days of 1 ad producing tons of results are OVER… unless backpage returns… you need to be posting a LOT… it is the new world we live in!! On MANY sites! tryst.link is a top result and is working hard to bring the traffic, they seem to care about advertisers. slixa is a great site but not a lot of results. you know the deal with most of the older backpage clones like bedpage. skip the games is REALLY solid. As I said I helped the girls that started afterdarkads.com, they like tryst care, are sexworkers themselves, and verify advertisers... you are not competing to post against fake ads on afterdarkads. They are doing a great job. Cityxguide is solid for the most part I can see, I hear that on the west coast they are killing it. There were a few guys from BP that went to work for them, I hear good things... You need to be on ALL of them and posting a LOT!! post 1 ad per day on EVERY single site that has daily posting EVEN IF YOU JUST POSTED THE ONLY AD YESTERDAY!!!! on sites like tryst with a profile, at a minimum 1 profile, its smart to have a second with dif pics and numbers... pics hiding a face, diff description... in one describe yourself as a sexy cute fun playful thing.. in the other describe yourself as a dominant sex machine... As sexworkers the best bet is to be a chameleon and adapt yourself to what the client is looking to pay for...
HAVE A SCREENING PROCESS!!! Most high end advertisers with their own websites have extensive screening processes... go find them, read their requirements... what will work for you? Mimic them.
Advertising after backpage is not as easy as it once was… it takes work… it takes INVESTING in yourself. EVERY dollar you spend advertising is an investment. Not enough money in your pocket? INVEST MORE!
I hope you get something that helps you from this. It is all my opinions based on many years in this industry and seeing a lot. I was very successful advertising my own agency and learned a lot. I am happy to answer any questions I can. PM or ask away here! Again PLEASE, be careful and be safe!

02-24 13:14 - 'Incognito mode for Bitcoin. What do you think?' (self.Bitcoin) by /u/jasonvuongle removed from /r/Bitcoin within 2-12min

'''
Hello folks,
Incognito is a privacy blockchain. We have come up with a new solution for 'anonymizing Bitcoin transactions' and we would like to have the discussion here with the community.
Our approach is called 'Privacy Bitcoin'. Imagine that you are using Google Chrome browser. Just by pressing some key , you can open and exit the Incognito mode easily. In the Incognito mode, every website you search for can’t be tracked. The concept of Privacy Bitcoin is the same as that. Privacy Bitcoin is Bitcoin in Incognito mode.
Basically, we built the Trustless Portal to connect Incognito Chain and Bitcoin Blockchain, through which your Bitcoin can be trustlessly 1:1 turned into Privacy Bitcoin and vice versa anytime you want. Issued on Incognito privacy blockchain, Privacy Bitcoin is technically a privacy coin just like Monero or Zcash, which means you can send, receive, and store Bitcoin in complete anonymity in Monero style or Zcash style. Moreover, Trustless Portals connecting to other blockchains have been also built. So, for the very first time, you can trade cross-chain Bitcoin to other cryptos completely anonymously.
We would like to read our proposal here: [[link]2 . Let's open the floor for discussion!!!

difficulty = difficulty_1_target / current_target (target is a 256 bit number) difficulty_1_target can be different for various ways to measure difficulty. Traditionally, it represents a hash where the leading 32 bits are zero and the rest are one (this is known as "pool difficulty" or "pdiff"). Bitcoin has been the dominant name in cryptocurrencies since 2009, but Litecoin and hundreds of others have joined the fray as well. As of May 2020, Bitcoin's market cap is just under $128 billion The BitcoinCash difficulty chart provides the current BitcoinCash difficulty (BCH diff) target as well as a historical data graph visualizing BitcoinCash mining difficulty chart values with BCH difficulty adjustments (both increases and decreases) defaulted to today with timeline options of 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 3 years, and all time It is one of Bitcoin’s central rules and cannot be changed without agreement between the entire Bitcoin network. The block reward started at 50 BTC in block #1 and halves every 210,000 blocks. This means every block up until block #210,000 rewards 50 BTC, while block 210,001 rewards 25. Coinbase is a secure platform that makes it easy to buy, sell, and store cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and more. Based in the USA, Coinbase is available in over 30 countries worldwide.
