Most used abbreviations in the cryptospace (newby guide)

As we welcome newcomers everyday to this sub it's nice to have a all you need to know abbreviations guide to get them started. When i first started reading up things (because DYOR) i came across terms i've never heard of. So here are some of the most common abbreviations you will come across while doing research about cryptos.

I hope this list can help new people coming in and maybe help some people that are just lost in all the jargon people use. I've put sections in the list to also help make the list easier to read. Maybe i missed some, so if anyone want anything added, comment and i will update it!

Abbreviations for Regulatory Commissions:

  • SEC – Securities and Exchange Commission
  • FTC – Federal Trade Commission
  • CFTC – Commodity Futures Trading Commission
  • FDIC – Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation
  • DOJ – Department of Justice

Like standard currency, cryptocurrency is regulated by various bodies and commissions. These organizations create regulations to avoid fraud and illegal schemes (for the most part).

Conversational Cryptocurrency abbreviations:

  • BUIDL – β€œBuild” (purposeful misspelling for ironic meaning)
  • FOMO – Fear of Missing Out
  • HODL – Hold On for Dear Life (purposeful misspelling of β€œHOLD")
  • BTD or BTFD – Buy The Dip or Buy the F****** Dip
  • DYOR – Do Your Own Research
  • FUD – Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt
  • FUDster - A person who spreads Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt
  • ELI5 - Explain It Like I’m 5
  • JOMO - Joy of Missing Out
  • KYC - Know Your Customer

  • TLT - Think Long Term
  • OCO - One Cancels the Other
  • AMA - Ask Me Anything
  • REKT - β€œWrecked” (meaning major losses)
  • TOR - The Onion Router (one who sends anonymous data)
  • CT - Crypto Twitter

Because every online community has their own slang and jargon, we are no different. Read up on cryptocurrency slang that you might need when conversing with others.

Financial abbreviations:

  • AML - Anti-Money Laundering
  • ATH - All-Time High
  • ATL - All-Time Low
  • ALT or Altcoin – Alternative Cryptocurrency (cryptocurrency other than Bitcoin)
  • CEX – Centralized Exchange

Monero security GUIDE - Maintaining Privacy and Security while handling with MONERO

This is a Little tutorial/Guide on how to Maintain Privacy and Security while handling MONERO

Operating Systems

- Tails OS with maximum security (https://tails.boum.org)- Qubes OS in a VM in a hardend Linux enviroment (https://www.qubes-os.org/)

Computer Security

- VeraCrypt Full disk encryption (Only as safe as your Password) https://www.veracrypt.fr/- Tails or Tor as a Proxy (Start Tor browser and configure 127.0.0.1:9050 as Proxy in your Network settings)- Check any devices/usbs plugged and only store your wallet keys in a Live os- TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER WHILE NOT USING IT!

Virtual Private Networks

- Delete all VPNs they are useless for Security/Anonymity (For thespecific Threat model I talk about VPNs are usefull for country/websiteblocking)

Monero Wallets

I will not cover ANY web/mobile/ wallets cause these are unsafe as youneed to trust a Third-Party storing your Private Keys and IpΒ΄s/KYCinformation. I also wont cover Hardware wallets in this thread.

- Official Monero GUI wallet (https://getmonero.org/)- Featherwallet (Featherwallet.org) (Beta)

How to install these wallets on Tails here is a guide: http://www.xmrguide42y34onq.onion/tails

Remote/Local Full Nodes and how to use them

There are many ways to connect to the monero Blockchain over Nodes,Remote nodes are the most used once cause its convinient to only need toconnect to a other persons server which already downloaded the wholeblockchain so there is no need to download it yourself.

Remote nodes are seriously dangerous cause you need to trust a Third-Party for handling your Transactions.Only use them while transfering "Clean" funds and only use Hidden Service Remote nodes! (List of remote Nodes)

Now there are 2 more options,First one is to host a remote node yourself so its completely in yourown hands.There are projects like PiNode XMR which allow you to do thatpretty easy with a cheap 50$ Rasperry Pi 4 (https://github.com/monero-ecosystem/PiNode-XMR)

The other option is to download the whole Blockchain(Curerntly 68GB)yourself and import it into your Wallet(Works on both Feather and MoneroGUI) a nice tutorial on how to do that on Tails ([https://www.reddit.com/r/Monero/comments/h8pbc2/guide_setting_up_a_monero_full_node_on_tails/](https://www.redd

Which leftist alternatives to reddit do you use? Here's my detailed list

Since reddit's moves to shut down or quarantine several leftist subreddits (chapotraphouse, leftwithsharpedge, fullcommunism, moretankiechapo, etc), I feel it's important to diversify our social media presence. We should still use for-profit capitalist platforms like reddit/twitter/facebook to spread propaganda, but also to foster egalitarian, communally-run alternatives to demonstrate that society needn't be capitalistic.

Reddit has long treated users like profit-producers for their advertisers, exploiting our hundreds of hours of free labor (either as mods or content producers) and then discarding us when we upset their shareholders with our anti-capitalist views. As revolutionaries, we should always work to cultivate alternatives to the capitalist media.

This is the criteria for what I would consider a good socialist internet project:

  1. No ads or other forms of monetization.

  2. Must be free and open source.

  3. Must be community-managed rather than managed by capitalists in a board room in Silicon Valley. The users need to have a voice in any decisions made about how the site ought to be run.

  4. Can't have any tracking of users beyond basic spam/troll safeguards, must respect our operational security.

  5. Has to have a strong stance against bigotry.

  6. A level of transparency for moderator actions is in place.

So these are the sites I know about.


Raddle.me

The oldest surviving reddit alternative out there (Over 4 years old) also has the best privacy policy I've ever seen and a terms of service that specifically bars a clear list of oppressive content. It's also the only site on this list with an active warrant canary.

It was created by Marxists and anarchists when reddit started banning leftist communities and their mods.

It has 4 administrators (2 anarchists and 2 Marxists) from Africa, Scandinavia, the Caribbean and Asia and a Marxist developer.

Technology: PHP, Postmill.

FOSS? Yes: zlib License.

Ad-Free? Yes.

Search? Yes.

Supports multiple languages? Yes.

Avoids user tracking? Yes.

Mod transparency? Yes.

Community managed? [Yes.](https://

I'm excited to announce my latest project: Web hosting with multi-network publishing. Publish direct to the clearnet, I2P and TOR networks.

I hope this is okay. Some of you may remember my post about RAMBLE, the reddit-like site that bridges multiple anonymity networks (Tor, I2P, Lokinet, and Yggdrasil to be specific!). I've been working on another project off and on since before that. RAMBLE was more or less a proof-of-concept of much larger idea that I had...

All I want to do is to grow anonymity networks by pushing regular, everyday content to them. I believe content is king, and content is what will encourage your normal, everyday type of people to start to use these networks. Ideally, this will encourage them to start thinking about their digital privacy as well. I want to do this while respecting the privacy of content publishers, too.

My background is in the webhosting industry, and myself and two longtime and trusted peers decided to work on a unique project together.

In short, we're simply a small hosting startup dedicated to protecting the privacy of our customers with a very non-invasive registration process, a website, customer portal, and hosting panel accessible from the network of your choice. (Currently clearnet, Tor and I2P), We also support several channels of communication, from the standard helpdesk (which you can access as a .onion!) to you using our public key to contact us at our encrypted email.

Our Terms of Service, Privacy Policy and Acceptable Usage Policy are available to review from the footer on our website. We believe you will find these very fair and reasonable. There you will also find our public keys and our warrant canary. Because we are just now beginning to launch, there is no transparency report available yet, but we plan on publishing quarterly transparency reports to highlight how many complaints we received, what we did with them (forward to end user, sent to /dev/null , or what actions we took) and to inform of any requests made from law enforcement. Remember, β€œWe can’t share what we do not know.”, it’s sort of our unofficial motto.

Furthermore, we encourage the use of crypto for payments (Monero preferred, Bitcoin and Oxen currently accepted as well. Others will be added as requested!) to protect the privacy of you, the customer, as well as protect us, the service supplier from fraudulent chargebacks. We are currently in talks with a Gift Card processor that will allow us to accept a comically large amount of Gift Cards as payments as well, which is just another privacy/anonymous method of payment. In true libertarian fashion, we’re also open t

I'm developing a decentralized private network, and I want your help [Onionr AMA]

I want to share with r/privacy my project I've been working on the past few years.

It is called Onionr. My goal is to make an anonymous network and platform for webpages, mailing, microblogging, document sharing and so on via modular parts. Since this is a general subreddit I won’t go too deeply into technical design or reasoning here except when asked.

Please understand that I've been working mostly on my own for free and my project is experimental and in alpha

I have several pre-included plugins accessible via a web UI, including mail, a textboard, and static site viewing, however Onionr is not intended for clearnet browsing. You can see slightly outdated screenshots on the README

The long term vision is an anonymous platform for free expression, communication and commerce for both desktop and mobile.

Onionr is a combination of features, routing methods, and design decisions that in my opinion are suitable for a true cypherpunk. It is most similar to Briar. The core component is a simple message serialization system which can be transported in any order, everything else is just logic on top of that.

I want to maximize anonymity on this platform, so this means there are trade-offs on scalability and speed. To maximize the anonymity set, the basic routing mode sends all messages to all peers via a gossip-like protocol, which are stored for a maximum of 30 days if they are not recalculated. For when you need larger amounts of data or lower latency, I have implemented a system to establish ephemeral onion connections to a peer, which expire when the connection is closed. This prevents DDoS of onion services (when only those with an approved key can access) and helps with up-time correlation attacks.

It is transport-agnostic meaning it works even without Internet, as it can work over LAN using multicast or even via sneakernet where objects (messages, sites) can be exported to files. In the last ~36 hours these were the only functioning transports as Tor was being DoS’d, taking down all v3 .onions

I have made it quite difficult to discover the identity of both publishers and consumers of content. This is because on top of the broadcast-like routing, all internet-facing nodes operate behind Tor (i2p support planned). Even if statistical analysis points to a particular .onion having created messages, there is plausible deniability due to the fact the messages could have come from anywh

Tor outage: How a major attack felled the onion network

Why did the Tor Network fail?

And so it was in January 2021, when the project’s validator nodes were knocked offline by a DDoS attack. As a result, they could not come to a consensus about the state of the network, hidden services became unreachable, and for some, the Tor browser gave an error message at startup.

There are nine privileged Tor directory servers, plus one β€œconsensus” server. You can find them listed on this page, and your Tor Browser or client will ping them at startups. These servers are distributed around the world and run as independently as possible, to make it difficult for anyone to take them over.

Every hour these directory servers vote on the state of the network, keeping each other informed about which node fulfills which function, which nodes behave poorly, or even which nodes have been deemed malicious and need to be kicked off the network.

The individuals running these directory nodes are constantly surveilling their own anti-surveillance network in search of bad actors and performance issues. A prominent case arose in mid-2020 when a group was found to have run almost a quarter of all exit nodes.

The votes, one of which you can find here, are transmitted unencrypted, but signed using a PGP key. When too many of these voting nodes are offline, or as in the January 2020 case, unable to respond due to a novel DDoS attack, a Tor client is unable to retrieve this consensus, and either has to fallback to an older state of the network and risk routing errors and malicious actors, or not engage at all.

What is the purpose of attacking Tor?

It is yet unclear which group is responsible for the attack, though it seems unlikely that error or a bug is to blame. Pulling off such a feat could be a simple show of strength for a hacking group, aimed at building a reputation and highlighting weaknesses in otherwise cherished software.

It could however also be a targeted attack aimed at some groups or individuals inside of the Tor Network, for instance to trick them into switching from hidden onion sites to connections to the clearnet.

Only a day later, for instance, the operators of the world’s largest darknet market were arrested by German police.

Best VPN providers by 4K Download Team

Privacy and freedom of the Internet seems to be more of a delusion than reality. Internet Service Providers collect your data while you are browsing websites and can sell it to marketing agencies. Governments of different countries impose new restrictions and even block the entire businesses like YouTube or Instagram in China. Users have to deal with IP bans and bandwidth throttling.

How can one hinder data acquisition, preserve privacy and lift various introduced restrictions? The answer is quite simple, VPN helps with that.

VPN or Virtual Private Network is a safe way of connecting between a user and a network. As a rule, a computer accesses the Internet straight via ISP, but in this case, the connection is usually perilous and easily traced. VPN establishes a secure β€œtunnel”, directs traffic through it to a server in another location, so the computer uses the server to access the Internet.

https://preview.redd.it/ev05th9j05m61.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a6dd9726773f10600fdffa4297fa58e5912ee593

Top VPN benefits:

  • It hides browser history, so you won’t get targeted advertisements.
  • It masks the IP address.
    IP address or Internet Protocol is assigned by your ISP and it can be rather easily tracked. With hidden IP address you protect your privacy and stay anonymous on the web.
  • It is safer to use public Wi-Fi hotspots, as your data is encrypted and identity theft becomes harder to be done.
  • It helps to get access to blocked websites and content. For example, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter and many other websites are banned in China, but VPN allows to remove such restrictions.

With so many advantages, Virtual Private Networks have become very popular and there are hundreds of service providers. Our team of QA engineers and developers had a challenging task to test the most prominent VPNs and find reliable, safe and fast ones. It has taken weeks and a tremendous amount of VPN apps was tested. Here are surely the best services approved by our highly-qualified developers.

Tor Hidden Services Always Down & Unavailable Suite Coins?

Love this sub, my Trezor One, and SatoshiLabs, but for the last month I've been confused with the following two issues:

  1. Is it just me, or are the Tor hidden services for the SatoshiLabs backends always down ("Account discovery error")? Obviously I can go into each coin's settings and set the backend servers to the clearnet SatoshiLabs servers, while still having the application route traffic over Tor overall, but I'd prefer to use the onion services whenever possible. I thought the recent bug affecting v3 onion services was resolved, so I'm curious to as to why I always have trouble with it despite running the latest Trezor Suite, Tor Browser, and Trezor One firmware.
  2. Secondly, when I go under Settings > Coins and look at this list of available coins, I only see these (redacted for privacy, but full list on the left). There are far more coins available on the Trezor coins page that say they are available on the Trezor One with the Trezor Suite wallet. Am I missing something?

A brief look into areas for security improvements in the CTemplar web app (Part 1/2)

Hello CTemplar Team!

CTemplar has come a long way in the past few months, and it seems well on it's way to becoming a good encrypted email service. It's clear that everyone in the team has been worked incredibly hard to get it this far. I think one of CTemplar's strong points is how feature-complete it is, even during this early stage of development. I believe in their mission of making encrypted email freely available to people, and I would like to help out.

While using the app, I've noticed a couple of little issues and glitches, which I have outlined below. Please don't take any of this as a criticism towards CTemplar or the developers, I am just trying to help in getting the application to a more polished state. I've tried to document them up as clearly, and where possible, I've given the steps to fix

Some of the below issues relate to security, but just to clarify up-front: none of these issues are critical, and if you are a user of CTemplar - you do not have anything to be immediately worried about in regards to the content below. That being said, they do should still be addressed by the devs, in order to keep things as safe as possible for the users going forward.

I have some additional issues (not included in this list), which I would like to discuss privately with someone from the team. I would appreciate if you could reach out, and I will go through them with you. You can find my public key here.

Please forgive me in advance if I've made any mistakes here- I wrote this late at night

User Token not Invalidated After Sign Out

When the user signs in with their credentials the server responds with a token, which is stored in the browsers local storage as user_key. And when they sign out, this key is removed from local storage, as expected (this happens in users.service.ts). However, it is never invalidated, leaving the users account vulnerable to a session hijacking attack. If an attacker were to manually insert this token into their browser, they would have full unrestricted access to the victims account. This can be fixed by calling to the server to destroy the token on logout or session expiry, and then generating a fresh access key next time the user signs in.

Declaration of Intellectual Independence

Conservative thought is being censored in the public square of Google, Facebook, Twitter. Videos are pulled down based upon political content. Tweets are removed for 'fact checking' by partisan left outlets. Content creators of conservative alignment are being de-monetized and de-platformed.

I had good faith that our elected representatives would do something about it. They have not. Emboldened, the authoritarian state has become even more repressive. They curate content as a publisher, but are given legal exemption from lawsuits as a content neutral platform. Nothing is happening and it is getting worse. Over and over we see our elected officials pay lip service to our grievances, and then never follow through with convictions.

It remains to us, the conservative people, to deal with this. But we are conservatives, who realize that in fighting this rising authoritarian state, how we fight matters as much as achieving the goal recovering our public square and ability to speak freely. So unlike the authoritarian left, we should not dox companies or individuals. We should not harass people directly. We should not call up sponsors and demand they no longer advertise with them. These are all deplorable tactics of the unethical authoritarian left.

No, we conservatives believe in free markets, and competition based on merit. And when in the course of human events it has become obvious that our public platforms are behaving in a deplorable authoritarian fashion, it is time to take our business elsewhere. It is time for us to patronize the competition. If business wants to advertise to us, they will follow us to these new, freer platforms. There is no compulsion here, only action by voluntary association with competitors. And as those monopiles see revenues fade, maybe fence sitter companies will learn from their mistakes and not go woke and go broke.

Speech control is ultimately thought control. Orwell predicted this. In moving to a place which honors free speech, we achieve intellectual independence.

And so I will start a list here of alternatives to the repressive near monopolies. If anyone has any other good suggestions, I would really like to know about them. I do not know all of them. We should grow this. Add links. Discuss how to transition, and keep it simple so everyone can do it.

Top 3 .onion websites from the depths of the dark web

Want to explore the dark web? Here is our list of the best .onion websites in 2021.

Facebook http://www.facebookcorewwwi.onion/

Why would one of the largest organizations known for its invasive stance on privacy and controversial clear-name policy have a .onion address?

While Facebook might collect everything you say and do on its platform, it isn’t happy with sharing this information with others. Facebook is also keenly aware of attempts by many governments to restrict access to a tool that allows strangers across the web to talk and collaborate freely.

Facebook’s .onion address doesn’t make it much easier to maintain an anonymous account, but it does make Facebook more accessible in places where it’s censored.

DuckDuckGo http://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion/

Searching for content but don’t want to give up your privacy? DuckDuckGo is a great alternative to Google. Search activity isn’t logged by design. Even without the ability to learn about your behavior or monitor your email and browsing, DuckDuckGo provides decent results. Which raises the question: Are Google’s extensive surveillance techniques really necessary?

Over Tor, Google becomes annoying to use, because it frequently subjects searchers to captchas to prove they’re human. But The Duck excels at speed, reliability, and privacy.

Wasabi Wallet http://wasabiukrxmkdgve5kynjztuovbg43uxcbcxn6y2okcrsg7gb6jdmbad.onion

Wasabi Wallet is a Bitcoin wallet that not only hides all your data in the Tor Network but also allows you to β€˜join’ your transactions with others to increase your anonymity. This makes it incredibly difficult to find out who you are paying.

The process costs a fee, but unlike with other β€˜tumbler’ or β€˜mixing’ services, there is no risk that Wasabi or any of its users could scam you out of your coins.

[10 Jan 2021] Yes most/all v3 onion services are down for most people.

--> 11 Jan 2021 thread


[10 Jan 2021] Yes most/all v3 onion services are down for most people. The most likely explanation for this is the dirauths being overloaded with traffic such that they cannot generate a consensus reliably, and the behavior of v3 onion services in the presence of flaky consensus information (both client and server side) is buggy in ways that v2 onions aren't. https://gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/core/tor/-/issues/40237

The deluge of traffic hitting dirauths has been happening since 6 Jan 2021 (https://lists.torproject.org/pipermail/tor-relays/2021-January/019201.html) and is suspected to be similar to this situation last year (https://gitlab.torproject.org/tpo/core/tor/-/issues/33018).

It is unknown if the traffic hitting the dirauths is maliciously motivated. There is no evidence that the traffic overload is actively trying to hurt v3 onions.

The issue is being worked on.

If you have better factual information that should be added to this FAQ, tell /u/system33- or pastly on IRC.

How to anonymously host the continued development of youtube-dl offshore

In this guide I will go through how to anonymously host the continued development of youtube-dl offshore using companies that have a track record of being very resilient to DMCA takedowns. As a general disclaimer, youtube-dl is not illegal, no matter how much the RIAA wants it to be. Hosting it is not illegal, but the RIAA doesn't care about what's legal, so we'll have to act accordingly and not rely on companies that will bend over backwards for them. This post is basically my way of flipping the bird to the RIAA.

Hi, I'm a Cybersec Enthusiast. If you're a Journalist / Activist / Citizen with privacy concerns, here's a Privacy 101 for you

Hi, I recently went through Indian news and media. I was concerned regarding the privacy violations that are happening in India as well as the recent case in UP. I express my heartily condolences to the families and prayers for them.

Getting to the topic, here's a Privacy 101 for you if you're a Journalist / Activist / Citizen of India who doesn't want her/his private chats on live TV.

Privacy Violations and How to Evade:

1. WhatsApp Chats: Regardless of claims, WhatsApp is end-to-end encrypted and it cannot be Intercepted and decrypted without the encryption key from the user's device. The encryption key is stored in the app data folder which is only accessible to the app itself and the root user and a few other methods due to android's app sandboxing. The privacy flaw lies in the Google drive backups and the owning company Facebook. Facebook is known to violate user privacy and it's not once. The WhatsApp chat databases (msgstore) are uploaded unencrypted into Google drive. Google drive has a special feature for storing app data in a hidden folder in the drive (App Data Storage), anyone with Google credentials or a login session from Google services can access all your chat backups and read it without a key.

[?] How to Prevent: Disable Google Drive Backups. The local backups are always available from Internal Storage /WhatsApp folder. The backups are encrypted so you can just copy it over to a safe location (a hardrive / pendrive / cold storage). You can also use any of the below cloud storage apps and configure automatic sync for the folder.

2. Call and Message Tapping: This is usually the telecom company handing over their logs to the government on orders. Your telecom company may also monitor your internet activity by monitoring your dns queries or using DPI (Deep Packet Inspection).

[?] How to Prevent: Use a different number. Ask a trusted friend to get you a Sim card, and use it for account verifications and then don't keep it. You can also purchase temporary numbers online. Just change your number altogether, or use online privacy focused messaging and calling services. Do not visit HTTP websites as they'd be plain text. Use a tunneling tool like TOR with Encrypted DNS. If you dislike TOR for it's slow network, use a trusted VPN like ProtonVPN.

3. Using a VPN make me undetectable: NO. A VPN only tunnels your internet through their servers, preventing you from DPI and interception threats in your network (Lan, Wan,

Bitcoin privacy/anonymity explained for newcomers with quick guide on best practice

Whenever the Bitcoin privacy / anonymity topic comes up in other threads, I see a lot of confusion as well as a lot of interest, so I decided to write a long post, mainly for newcomers, that will cover:

  1. How private is Bitcoin? (assuming you don’t take extra steps to increase privacy)
  2. Ways to acquire Bitcoin without revealing your identity
  3. Ways to delink Bitcoin from your identity
  4. Why should you care about privacy and other considerations

I am by no means an expert, I would just consider myself an β€˜advanced user’ so anybody feel free to jump and tell me if anything I’m saying is not correct and I will amend it. I just do this selflessly to help newcomers.

I know this content may be here spread in various threads already, but I just think sometimes people miss having it all explained from the basics.

Disclaimer: I don’t have any association with any of the services I may list below, it’s just the ones I’ve used and I’m most familiar with.

How private is Bitcoin? (assuming you don't take extra steps to increase privacy)

Bitcoin transactions are recorded in the blockchain, which is public, so everyone can see them. However, transactions are pseudonymous meaning they show addresses and not directly an identity.

Addresses look like this: bc1qar0srrr7xfkvy5l643lydnw9re59gtzzwf5mdq

While your identity is not directly showing in the blockchain, it is still possible that some addresses can be associated with it.

If a Bitcoin address has been linked to your identity, for example because it comes from an exchange where you have revealed it, all your future transactions can be traced. Not only that but chain analysis can be performed to deduce if this address belongs to a larger cluster of addresses owned by you, therefore exposing if you own more Bitcoin and also potentially revealing past transactions.

Example: you purchased 0.5 BTC in Coinbase, and you have given them your identity because it is mandatory. You also have 1 BTC in a hardware wallet which you acquired by other methods and it is not linked to your identity. You want to store your BTC in the hardware wallet but you don’t want to reveal that you already own 1 BTC and you may feel smart by using a new address. While not reusing addresses is good practice, the problem is if you then go and spend 0.75 BTC, this transaction will probably contain 0.5 BTC linked to your identity and then 0.25 from the 1 BTC that was already there and was still anonymous. Well now it isn’t anonymous a

[12 Jan 2021] Three days of flaky v3 onions, will it be four?

11 Jan 2021 thread <-- --> blog post, and all future updates


The fix for v3 onion services is getting close to merged.

[email protected] thread.

After it is merged and backported, it's up to the packagers for your OS or your tor-derived software (e.g. Tor Browser) to notice the update and distribute it to you. I would expect Tor Browser to be updated very quickly. Debian will probably take a day or two. Other distros, I have no idea.

Nothing else new yet today to report. As you can see in yesterday's thread, the day started out fine but got worse. I haven't seen anything suggesting anything about what today will be like: nothing like "my dirauth no longer sees this stupid traffic" nor anything like "omg I'm still getting this traffic."

I have finished a draft blog post to be made on my blog and on blog.torproject.org. When the blog post is live, I'll focus my updates there.

As a reminder of what's going on:

  • Someone is sending the directory authorities (and fallback dirs) lots of traffic.
  • This causes them to no longer be able to reliably communicate.
  • This means consensuses are not longer reliably produced every hour.
  • No new consensus three hours in a row means new connections to v3 onion services stop working because of a bug. Existing connections survive, and no other part of Tor breaks at the three hour mark.
  • There is an experimental patch for experts who know what they are doing. It, or something like it, will make it into Tor code properly very soon if testing goes well.

Please keep these facts in mind:

  • It is unknown if the traffic hitting the dirauths is maliciously motivated. People keep calling it an attack. I don't think we have the evidence to back that up at this time.

  • There is no evidence that the traffic overload is actively trying to hurt v3 onions. A similar situation existed last year and onions didn't go down then. Claims that it is "the" government or rival drug markets are not backed u

Ultimate glossary of crypto currency terms, acronyms and abbreviations

I thought it would be really cool to have an ultimate guide for those new to crypto currencies and the terms used. I made this mostly for beginner’s and veterans alike. I’m not sure how much use you will get out of this. Stuff gets lost on Reddit quite easily so I hope this finds its way to you. Included in this list, I have included most of the terms used in crypto-communities. I have compiled this list from a multitude of sources. The list is in alphabetical order and may include some words/terms not exclusive to the crypto world but may be helpful regardless.

2FA

Two factor authentication. I highly advise that you use it.

51% Attack:

A situation where a single malicious individual or group gains control of more than half of a cryptocurrency network’s computing power. Theoretically, it could allow perpetrators to manipulate the system and spend the same coin multiple times, stop other users from completing blocks and make conflicting transactions to a chain that could harm the network.

Address (or Addy):

A unique string of numbers and letters (both upper and lower case) used to send, receive or store cryptocurrency on the network. It is also the public key in a pair of keys needed to sign a digital transaction. Addresses can be shared publicly as a text or in the form of a scannable QR code. They differ between cryptocurrencies. You can’t send Bitcoin to an Ethereum address, for example.

Altcoin (alternative coin): Any digital currency other than Bitcoin. These other currencies are alternatives to Bitcoin regarding features and functionalities (e.g. faster confirmation time, lower price, improved mining algorithm, higher total coin supply). There are hundreds of altcoins, including Ether, Ripple, Litecoin and many many others.

AIRDROP:

An event where the investors/participants are able to receive free tokens or coins into their digital wallet.

AML: Defines Anti-Money Laundering laws**.**

ARBITRAGE:

Getting risk-free profits by trading (simultaneous buying and selling of the cryptocurrency) on two different exchanges which have different prices for the same asset.

Ashdraked:

Being Ashdraked is essentially a more detailed version of being Zhoutonged. It is when you lose all of your invested capital, but you do so specifically by shorting Bitcoin. The expression β€œAshdraked” comes from a story of a Romanian cryptocurrency investor who insisted upon shorting BTC, as he had done so successfully in the past. Whe

PSA: Reminder that Github is not the only Bitcoin Source Repo

Github (@Microsoft) is a great site, and they have, for the most part, been pretty laissez-faire about repos that the "powers that be" might object to. But any skeptical mind should always "what if" anything as important as the Bitcoin-Core codebase. Assuming you've done all the basic stuff like build-from-source and run your own node, now might be a good time to add some mirrors to your list of git remotes.

The best mirror I can think of is probably the onion mirror maintained by @laanwj (github). If there are some others that are replicated regularly, please help me collect the list.

If we "start from scratch" I'll add the github-git as the default remote named "origin" and add the onion-git as the remote named "onion". Of course you can change the names if they are too close for your liking.

Initially clone the repo from github (github-git -> "origin")

    # This will create "origin" and checkout "master"
    git clone https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin.git
    cd bitcoin

Add the Onion-Git as one of our remotes

    o_host=nxshomzlgqmwfwhcnyvbznyrybh3gotlfgis7wkv7iur2yj2rarlhiad.onion
    git remote add onion http://$o_host/git/bitcoin.git
    git config --local --add remote.onion.proxy "socks5h://127.0.0.1:9050"

Create a branch "onion-master" that tracks our new remote

    git fetch onion
    git checkout -b onion-master onion/master

Go back to "origin/master" and compare

    git checkout master
    git branch -vv
    # Should see origin/master and onion/master at the same commit

Now if Github does any shenanigans with the repo, you can pull from the onion repo. It should be noted that the onion repo is read-only, but I'm sure if anything goes wierd there will be about a half dozen new repos pop up. But at least this one is an authoritative source.

Why You Should DeGoogle & Intro DeGoogling Techniques

Welcome to /r/DeGoogle!

If you're on the new reddit, please check out our rules in the sidebar or use the following link https://old.reddit.com/r/degoogle/about/rules/

&nbsp;

Ever seen some information on the web where you thought.. "That should not be public, that shouldn't be visible. How do they know that?!" That's what we're concerned with, we're /r/DeGoogle and want to keep personal information just that.. Personal. Over the years many companies have proven to take more data on users than necessary and in turn save and potentially leak that data. Many times it is 'unintentional', but once the leak happens, personal data is out there for the world wide web to access. Data breaches happen quite often Many breaches happen behind closed doors and might never be released to the public, here is a list of over 40 known breaches of 2020. That list includes Tmobile, Facebook, Nintendo, GoDaddy, Zoom, Microsoft, health care providers, pharmacies and more.

&nbsp;

####Why should I care?####

Do you act the same in public vs in private?

Once your data is out there, you no longer have control over it. It was said best during this Ted Talk by Glenn Greenwald - Why Privacy Matters - Peertube Link Secondary Peertube Link

From Glenn Greenwald's Ted Talk, "You're giving up your rights. Your saying hey, 'I don't think I'm going to need them so I'm just going to trust that, Let's get rid of them it doesn't matter. These guys are going to do the right thing'. Your rights matter because you never know when your going to need them.

"People should be able to pick up the phone and call their family. People should be able to send a text message to their loved one. People should be able to buy a book online, they should be able to travel by train, they should be able to buy an airline ticket without wondering how these events are going to look.. To an agent of the government, possibly not even your government. Years in the future, how they're going to be misinterpreted and what they're going to think your intentions. We have a right to privacy."

PSA: Enable Tor as a simple way to make your node reachable.

Become one of the 10% of node operators that receive incoming connections.

Installing bitcoin core is easy, and with pruning it really isn't the space sink it is characterized as. Even a modest computer can complete the initial block download (IBD) and become a full node. But what some users (90%) find a bit more challenging, is how to become a listening node. Listening nodes are an important part of the network, and are simple enough to enable. I can think of 4 ways to do it:

  1. Operate on an OS and Network that support uPnP, allowing bitcoin to open the ports for you.
  2. Subscribe to a VPN that allows you to open ports through their service.
  3. Manually configure your OS and network to forward port 8333 and 18333.
  4. Run Tor and direct bitcoin to listen through it.

I'll discuss #4. Obviously #1 or #2 are easier, but require a VPN subscription or uPnP enabled HW. And if you live in a dorm or don't control the network, Tor may be the only free option available.

As a bit of background, bitcoin supports three networks that your node can listen on:

  • IPv4 - This is the "legacy" internet that most are used to
  • IPv6 - A not so new upgrade allowing trillions of addresses instead of billions
  • Tor - A privacy network allowing encrypted traffic to remain anonymous

Obviously, the more you enable, the better, but here are the basic steps for Tor in broad strokes. If you have any questions post them here and I'll see if we can't help you out:

  1. Download, verify^(1) and install Gpg4win
  2. Download, verify^(2), install, and launch Tor Browser
  3. Download, verify^(3), install, and launch Bitcoin Core
  4. Launch and Admin command console in the directory containing tor.exe
  5. Install the Tor service: tor.exe --service install
  6. CD to service dir: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\tor
  7. Create and edit a file called torrc with the contents suggested below
  8. Restart tor: tor.exe --service stop &amp;&amp; tor.exe --service start
  9. Record the hostname: type .\HiddenService\hostname as &lt;hostname&gt;

Previous thread

Questions Answers
Around here nobody talks about the argument that increased regulation of the internet would help stop child predators. Is that true, and if so where do you fall on the Net Neutrality vs law enforcement spectrum? No I don't think that's true at all. Child predators have been around much longer than the internet, and I would argue child abuse was more prevalent 50+ years ago when children were seen and not heard and it wasn't talked about. The dark web hasn't created more predators, it has just given them a new place to gather and hang out.
The one thing I found really interesting when I was lurking the forums of the child predators was their frustration about how children are now taught from a very young age that certain touching and acts are wrong and that they shouldn't keep certain secrets. It came up over and over again that they could not abuse certain children because they knew those children had someone they would tell. It was pretty clear that education was a child's best defence against getting abused.
^(the below is a reply to the above)
That's so interesting, thanks for the AMA! Can you remember any other thing that a child could do in order to protect himself from being abused? What other characteristics do the abusers hate in potential victims? That seems to be the main one. Kids who speak up and who have close relationships with one or more people they are likely to confide in
What do folks talk about in the child predator forums? Do they like give each other advice on how to improve their craft? Yes, quite literally. The give each other tips on how not to get caught, how to edit out incriminating details in videos, how to drug children, techniques for convincing kids not to tell etc
^(the below is a reply to the above)
Given your insight into how predators operate, do you have any advice for parents on protecting their kids? I'll cut'n'paste a response i gave to someone else about this, because it was something that really stuck out to me:

Decentr ($DEC) - foundational cross-chain and cross-platform DeFi protocol
  1. SUMMARY

Decentr is a protocol designed to make blockchain/DLT mainstream by allowing DeFi applications built on various blockchains to β€œtalk to each other”. Decentr is a 100% secure and decentralised Web 3.0 protocol where users can apply PDV (personal data value) to increase APR on $DEC that users loan out as part of of our DeFi dLoan features, as well as it being applied at PoS when paying for stuff online. Decentr is also building a BAT competitor browser and Chrome/Firefox extension that acts as a gateway to 100% decentralised Web 3.0

>Allows DeFi Dapps to access all Decentr’s dFintech features, including dLoan, dPay. Key innovation is that the protocols is based on a user’s ability to leverage the value of their data as exchangeable β€œcurrency”.

  1. KEY CONCEPTS
  • Decentr is building foundational chain-agnostic protocols that will support β€œtrue” 100% DeFi Dapps, a 100% secure and decentralised, user-centric alt economy. DeFi dApps inter-connected by Decentr can talk to each other and share PDV (personal data value) of their users. PDV is best described as a personalized β€œexchange rate” (in a sense social reputation where more effort leads to more rewards and NOT more capital to more rewards. ) between currencies that users apply at point-of-sale to make the cost of goods and services cheaper online. PDV is applied to the APR users earn on $DEC (native token) that they hold that they loan out as part of the investing pool. PDV will also allow uncollateralized loans on their dLoan platform, and also on platforms like Aave and Compound.
  • Decentr will implement ZKsync to get super cheap and super fast transactions across the ETH network. It is also working with HoloChain and Tomochain to allow connect their DeFi ecosystem to the Ethereum DeFi ecosystem. Decentr has DEEP TIES and a PARTNERSHIP with Holochain: https://medium.com/@DecentrNet/decentr-holochain-ama-29d662caed03
  • Decentr is also building a browser and Chrome/Firefox extension - a gateway that β€œtransitions” Web 2.0 into a 100% decentralised Web 3.0 via their suite of decentralised dFintech and dCommunications features. The browser adds a 100% decentralised β€œuser layer” to current blockchain protocols so that applications built on blockchain can actually β€œtalk to each other”. The browser uses encrypt

P2P questions on operation of Bitcoin Core

I've been playing around with Core, and had a random collection of questions regarding the P2P operations of the protocol. I've looked through some of the source but C++ is not my strongest language. Hopefully someone knows some of the answers off the top of their head.

  1. What whoami info is transmitted when a node connects to a peer, particularly on onion? Since all onion connections happen through the tor service on 127.0.0.1 how do the peers know where to find me? Is the externalip argument and port bindings transmitted to peers (must be right)? And if this info is transmitted, why don't I know the names of onion peers that connect to me, they always show as 127.0.0.1.
  2. How is a peer that listens on a non-default port discovered? When I look at DNS seeding, the DNS digs only give IP addresses. Most of the time hosts listed in a DNS seed DIG are listening on the default port, but is there any way to discover nodes listening on a nondefault port? Are they only discovered when they connect to peers and give their whoami or whatever message that may be.
  3. If I'm connected to a peer, say 1.2.3.4:8333, then that would be an outgoing connection my by tally. Can that peer then turn around and issue and incoming connection to me? Specifically, can I hold both an outgoing and incoming connection to the same peer? Does this create and type of spanning tree violation?
  4. Generally, how soon after a peer connects do the two peers begin to sync their mempools. Is that the first order of business, or is there some random timer that triggers the sync between the peers?
  5. When I issue a sendrawtransaction API call, does that just push the TXN to my own mempool, or does that force a message to all my peers that I have a new TXN to send?

Most used abbreviations in the cryptospace (newby guide version 1.1)

This is version 1.1 wich included the top 25 coins explained in two sentences. If you want anything added to this list comment and i will update it! :)

As we welcome newcomers everyday to this sub it's nice to have a all you need to know abbreviations guide to get them started. When i first started reading up things (because DYOR) i came across terms i've never heard of. So here are some of the most common abbreviations you will come across while doing research about cryptos. In this list you can also find the top 25 crypto as of 8 march 2021 wich are explained in mostly 2 - 3 sentences.

I hope this list can help new people coming in and maybe help some people that are just lost in all the jargon people use. I've put sections in the list to also help make the list easier to read. Maybe i missed some, so if anyone want anything added, comment and i will update it!

Top 25 cryptocurrencies explained in 2 senctences:

  1. Bitcoin (BTC): the original. According to the creator (or creators?) Satoshi Nakamoto was created to allow β€œonline payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution.”
  2. Ethereum (ETH): Ethereum is the wonder child of crypto, acts as an infrastructure for most decentralized applications. Introduces smart contracts, which are like programs with specific procedures that, once deployed, no one can change.
  3. Tether (USDT): a centralized stablecoin tied to the dollar
  4. Binance Coin (BNB): coin associated with the Binance exchange, so valuable since it is the most popular centralized exchange.
  5. Cardano (ADA): Another blockchain trying to improve scalability, interoperability, and sustainability of cryptocurrencies. Those who hold the cryptocurrency have the right to vote on any proposed changes in the software.
  6. Polkadot (DOT): open-source protocol aimed at connecting all different blockchains and allowing them to work together, allowing transfers of any data.
  7. Ripple (XRP): centralized coin, most people don’t see a future for it after SEC went after it.
  8. Uniswap (UNI): Another DeFi like Aave, but this time it’s an exchange like Binance, just decentralized.
  9. Chainlink (LINK): the main idea is to LINK smart contracts with real-world data, verifying that this data is correct.
  10. Litecoin (LTC): Bitcoin’s cousin, with faster transactions and lower fees.
  11. Bitcoin Cash (BCH): fork of Bitcoin (so a copy with some differenc

I'm excited to announce my latest project: Web hosting with multi-network publishing. Publish direct to the clearnet, I2P and TOR networks.

I hope this is okay. Some of you may remember my post about RAMBLE, the reddit-like site that bridges multiple anonymity networks (Tor, I2P, Lokinet, and Yggdrasil to be specific!). I've been working on another project off and on since before that. RAMBLE was more or less a proof-of-concept of much larger idea that I had...

All I want to do is to grow anonymity networks by pushing regular, everyday content to them. I believe content is king, and content is what will encourage your normal, everyday type of people to start to use these networks. Ideally, this will encourage them to start thinking about their digital privacy as well. I want to do this while respecting the privacy of content publishers, too.

My background is in the webhosting industry, and myself and two longtime and trusted peers decided to work on a unique project together.

In short, we're simply a small hosting startup dedicated to protecting the privacy of our customers with a very non-invasive registration process, a website, customer portal, and hosting panel accessible from the network of your choice. (Currently clearnet, Tor and I2P), We also support several channels of communication, from the standard helpdesk (which you can access as a .onion!) to you using our public key to contact us at our encrypted email.

Our Terms of Service, Privacy Policy and Acceptable Usage Policy are available to review from the footer on our website. We believe you will find these very fair and reasonable. There you will also find our public keys and our warrant canary. Because we are just now beginning to launch, there is no transparency report available yet, but we plan on publishing quarterly transparency reports to highlight how many complaints we received, what we did with them (forward to end user, sent to /dev/null , or what actions we took) and to inform of any requests made from law enforcement. Remember, β€œWe can’t share what we do not know.”, it’s sort of our unofficial motto.

Furthermore, we encourage the use of crypto for payments (Monero preferred, Bitcoin and Oxen currently accepted as well. Others will be added as requested!) to protect the privacy of you, the customer, as well as protect us, the service supplier from fraudulent chargebacks. We are currently in talks with a Gift Card processor that will allow us to accept a comically large amount of Gift Cards as payments as well, which is just another privacy/anonymous method of payment. In true libertarian fashion, we’re also open t

Everyday info sec, hardcore info sec, and DNMs

Edit: Currently writing a new version of this, dont know when it will be done.

Edit: Since first post I have updated a few sections with additional information.

I recommend reading it all even if it is very long, I might have placed some relevant info in different sections while thinking about what else needed to be added, plenty of steps remains mostly the same except when I comment directly on it. It is not necessary to do 100% security all the time, unless you absolutely need it, combining some high and some lower security ideas for a balance of security and convenience is useful.

I will base this mostly on Windows, Linux users probably know this, and I have no idea how apple machines work (tho many things in here are still relevant for other operating systems, as they are just general tips)

Disclaimer: There are certainly other steps that can make you more anonymous or safer, however I think for most people this will surfice. Any software I recommend should be independently verified for security, and examples of software are not to be taken as endorsements. I simply use examples and give recommendations when I believe it necessary, or helpful.

I will not really differentiate between anonymity and security, they are often the same thing. As such the word security can mean either more anonymous, less vulnerable, or both.

--------

Everyday Simple Info Sec:

  • Password for the device is an obvious one (8+ characters minimum, best if over +12), if there is sensitive information on any of the drives, either encrypt the entire drive or just the sensitive files, and make encrypted backups on a different memory storage device (There many programs to encrypt files and drives I'm sure a search will figure it out)

-There could be a hidden administrator user on your PC, make sure to change its password

  • Always use the device on a non admin account

  • a VPN that doesn't log (use with kill switch on, should be enough for everyday stuff, more safe stuff in the high security section) (VPNs that claim they don't log sometimes do, it's bad, but I would like to point out that not using a VPN will always expose your traffic to your ISP and also remove additional encryption. Even if the VPN tracks, there is no downside because your ISP would track anyways, and VPNs can be more anonymous, and also add extra encryption)

  • [disable location tracking](https://www.computerworld.com/article/3025709/how-to-protect-your-privacy-in-windows-10.amp.html&

[Table] IAmA dark web expert, investigative journalist and true crime author. I’ve met dark web kingpins in far flung prisons and delved the murky depths of child predator forums. I’ve written six books and over a dozen Casefile podcast episodes. AMA (part 1/2)

Source | Guestbook

Note: Some answers were repetitive, but were not edited out.

Questions Answers
Have you ever gotten into legal trouble by exploring the dark places of the internet? Like, "sorry, officer, I was only surfing drug markets and child molester forums for my next journalism piece..." Do you worry about that? Do you have to take extra steps to protect yourself? I'm very careful not to go anywhere that it is illegal to visit. You will hear loads of stories about how easy it is to "stumble upon" child porn, but the fact is that those sites usually have names like "Preteen cuties" so you know exactly what they are, and in order to access them you have to register. So you have to make a very deliberate choice to log into them. I have no interest whatsoever in viewing any child abuse material, so I don't go into those places. When I was researching The Darkest Web, I went to the discussion forums that didn't allow any images (though they did link to sites that did), and even there I turned off images.
As for the drugs, weapons etc, there is nothing illegal about surfing them and looking around.
I do get a bit nervous every time I visit the US, especially when I was invited to a "friendly" lunch with Homeland Security once (it was reasonably friendly as it turns out, it was also terrifying)
^(the below is a reply to the above)
Why did homeland security want to talk to you? They said it was about the murder-for-hire stuff, but some of the questions leaned toward something else
Is there anything that really concerns you about the dark web? Some of the things already discussed are beyond barbaric and that is only the stuff that has been found out about and been picked up by the media and your fantastic work. Do you think the public should expect worse and more horrific revelations from the dark web or is it just "more of the same" for lack of a better term and do you think the authorities are getting better in shutting this inhumanity down and catching the people responsible? I am definitely not against people taking back their online privacy and I actually think that buying drugs from the darknet markets is a safer and more sensible option than buying them from the dodgy dealer down the road. However the one thing that is really disturbing is that the dark web has provided a place for child predators to find each other and for
