Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet

A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.

"Given that this paper is now peer reviewed and approved: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3265157, It would seem that the 'official' Bitcoin wiki is wrong. Bitcoin Script is Turing Complete. Guess @ProfFaustus was right! Is the selfish mining paper also peer reviewed?"

Luke-jr pushes his crazy on wiki too. Why official wiki says we have, quote: 7,750,54.00 bitcoins? Can someone add it's personal opinion of one (very vocal) guy?

Bitcoin answers the Byzantine General’s problem, but could it also answer the [Drake Question](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drake_equation) too?

Bitcoin answers the Byzantine General’s problem, but could it also answer the Drake Question too?
If we use the Drake Equation to estimate the number of intelligent and technically advanced civilizations on other planets, we are left with a question as to why we have not found alien life. This results in a very frightening conclusion that there must be a Great Filter at some point that acts as an impassable barrier. Often, this is speculated something like a biological filter—such as the jump from one to multicellular organisms, or where a civilization develops the capacity to destroy itself through nuclear warfare and then promptly does so...
But what if the filter is not resource depletion, biological hurdles, or nuclear holocaust, but what if it is instead an economic filter?
We can easily see that government’s grow to whatever size they are allowed to grow by economic reality. That is, governments grow and grow, inefficiently consuming resources and inhibition progress, but eventually they seem to hit a wall and collapse as inflationary pressures build under the economic pressure of poor financial management until people exit that currency in favor of another. In other words, government’s ability to continue grow is limited only by their ability to maintain control over the economy they parasitically leech off of. We can imagine a situation where a failing government that has full control over what currency its underlying economy uses to the point where they could prevent people from switching to another fallback currency, and thus short circuiting the hyperinflation failsafe that keeps government economically constrained from the runaway destruction of resources.
It is fairly clear that the monetary trend before Bitcoin was toward centralization and digitization—e.g. the European countries transitioning to use the Euro. Eventually, this would have resulted in a currency monopoly (as money is a natural monopolistic market), of which some governmental body would have absolute control. In this situation, with no breaker-like failsafe in the form of hyperinflation, it is reasonable to conclude such government would grow and grow until it strangles the underlying economy past the point of what would be hyperinflation failure into what is a more permanent economic death that spirals into a socialist dystopia until there is no productivity left for the parasite to leech off of.
But we have Bitcoin, so that scenario can never happen here on our planet. Perhaps other alien worlds developed a comparable level of technological advancement only to have all of that progress destroyed by some alien version of Karl Marx and authoritarian governments that forced economic control upon their alien worlds through control of whatever centralized currency they used to the point of total annihilation. What if we passed the Great Filter in 2009?

BTC is a Ponzi according to the bitcoin wiki on en.bitcoin.it

Is Bitcoin a Ponzi scheme?
In a Ponzi Scheme, the founders persuade investors that they’ll profit. Bitcoin does not make such a guarantee. There is no central entity, just individuals building an economy.
A ponzi scheme is a zero sum game. Early adopters can only profit at the expense of late adopters. Bitcoin has possible win-win outcomes. Early adopters profit from the rise in value. Late adopters, and indeed, society as a whole, benefit from the usefulness of a stable, fast, inexpensive, and widely accepted p2p currency.
My experience of BTC recently is not fast or inexpensive. 4 days ago I took advantage of the mempool dip to sweep my last BTC wallet (a brainwallet I had set up for my kids, which I've been reluctant to touch). I way over estimated the fee at 100 sats/byte, just to be sure it would be fast. Of course the mempool exploded again and I've now spent over 100 usd in additional miner bribes (in BCH of course) to get it to confirm, so that I can take advantage of the BCH/BTC dip.
This wiki was my first insight into buying bitcoin. I did a lot of research and found that it was completely factual and until 1st Aug 2017 it was a great resource. It is way past time they corrected it by adding a simple word: 'cash'. This would make it accurate again.

US OFAC issues advisory: ransom payments for ransomware may involve felony charges and personal civil liability for staff.

Relevant Excerpt:
Under the authority of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) or the Trading with the Enemy Act (TWEA),9 U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in transactions, directly or indirectly, with individuals or entities (“persons”) on OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List (SDN List), other blocked persons, and those covered by comprehensive country or region embargoes (e.g., Cuba, the Crimea region of Ukraine, Iran, North Korea, and Syria). Additionally, any transaction that causes a violation under IEEPA, including transactions by a non-U.S. person which causes a U.S. person to violate any IEEPA-based sanctions, is also prohibited. U.S. persons, wherever located, are also generally prohibited from facilitating actions of non-U.S. persons, which could not be directly performed by U.S. persons due to U.S. sanctions regulations. OFAC may impose civil penalties for sanctions violations based on strict liability, meaning that a person subject to U.S. jurisdiction may be held civilly liable even if it did not know or have reason to know it was engaging in a transaction with a person that is prohibited under sanctions laws and regulations administered by OFAC.
Sauce Here: https://home.treasury.gov/system/files/126/ofac_ransomware_advisory_10012020_1.pdf
OFAC Sanctions list here: https://sanctionssearch.ofac.treas.gov/
Analysis: Both TWEA and IEEPA carries Criminal and Civil penalties, so under these acts they can fine the company, fine staff directly, or press criminal charges. We know the US Government as part of both the 5 eyes agreements and domestic bank monitoring programs under FACTA monitors all international wire transfers. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies generally leave a paper trail that can be traced back to who purchased the currency.
What I expect to start happening here is most CFO's are going to write off the cost of the ransom as a tax deduction which tips off the IRS that a ransom of some kind was paid. I expect the next step is the IRS is going to start asking for additional proof of payment and additional information about the cases. That puts CFO's in a bind, because I expect both the IRS, and federal courts, won't let it fly that you didn't know who you were paying money to under the TWEA. They'll sit on the data, and when eventually an APT Group gets compromised, they'll trace the payments back via said tax records. At that point, if your org paid under this, that data gets used to open up a search warrant and then they rip you a new one especially if the payment was substantial.
The bigger issue here is it opens up tremendous liability for security services firms and insurers who pay ransoms on behalf of clients or advise clients to pay ransoms.
Now is a good time to review your backup strategy and ensure you have tested backups that are isolated from your infrastructure.
For those of you with your hands tied behind your back, now is a good time to gently remind your management staff, and especially the CFO if you have their ear, that they cannot rely on the renound cryptographic competence of our eastern european bretheren, and that their worst-case risk is a determined remote attacker and adversary of the US infecting your network, destroying the data while making it look like a ransomware attack, selling you worthless encryption keys to fund their operation before flaunting the fact they took you for a fool with a press release taking credit for the attack to tip off state government you paid them in order to further disrupt the company operations via putting your talented technical staff or c-suite staff in handcuffs and injuring your PR.
To those of you in the business who are afraid of being scapegoated or in a tenuous situation, getchu some evidence tape and some tags, some vanilla envelopes and a glue stick. Print 2 copies, put one copy in a folder, seal it with evidence tape and a tag, then use your handy glue stick to adhere the other vanilla folder to its back and put the 2nd copy in so you can review the paperwork without breaking the evidence seal and shove that sucker in a fire proof safe or safety deposit box. Also, Mailstore home is free.
TL;DR: If your company is attacked by ransomware, tell the management only facts of the occurance you know, what you can and cannot do for them, and don't advise them of anything upto and including getting a security services firm involved. I wouldn't even tell them paying the ransom might work. If you're going to have a verbal conversation, make it a one-on-one.
Happy Saturday all!

A complete list of everything our PMC has to do in Tarkov

Have you ever wondered the insane amount of suffering our PMC has to endure to complete every quest in the game and have the Hideout maxed out? Well, wonder no longer, because I've done the math.
Disclaimer: Long post ahead. I've used guides, data and analysis by other content creators, like Pestily, Europino and Questalace, as well as the all-mighty Tarkov Wiki to make this list. The resulting data should reflect the almost-perfect 100% Tarkov Speedrun starting with a Standard Account at the end of 12.7.
I don't know if this has been done before, so cut me some slack for any inconsistencies, as I did this for fun.

Killing:
The PMCs character arc will take our poor USECs and BEARs from battle-tested veterans to blood-thirsty killing machines the likes of Atila, with an indescribable amount of mental and physical trauma. This is all on the traders, who force us to commit genocide just to gain a standing with them. Here is the ranking:
This totals to a staggering 488 Scavs and 166 PMCs. 654 mothers will mourn the deaths of their sons, as you long surpass Simo Häyhä as the most effective soldier in recorded history.

Use, place, find in raid or deliver:
Apart from sustaining irreparable psychological damage as the bringer of so much death, your PMC is also expected to retrieve a back-breaking amount of loot for his Hideout and the 7 Traders of the Apocalypse. From life-saving devices to mere cigarettes, your PMC will have to.

Skills:
After all this Devil wears Prada reenactment, your PMC is faced with a Sisyphus-like destiny. You need to improve your skills until you get to Health level 9, Stress Resistance level 6, Sniper level 9, Memory level 8, Searching level 9, Charisma level 10, Vitality level 5, Endurance level 2, Attention level 3, Metabolism level 3 and Strength level 2. Some of this skills improve others, so let's start by the independent ones and asume you can completely avoid the deminishing returns mechanic.
And that's it. You want to escape Tarkov? Pay the toll!
Edit: Some pesky typos
Edit 2: Fixed the results of the Vitality skill, thanks to Erkeric for the correction
