Why should you run a mining server?
Mining servers are used to cryptographically secure transactions. They provide computing power and electricity to secure transactions from others. In return you receive Bitcoins as compensation.
Whoever has more computing power is faster and therefore earns more Bitcoins. If someone wants to manipulate transactions, he would have to hold back his computing power and then suddenly strike and take over all transactions. But this would become visible with a sudden peak.
Is the price of Bitcoins manipulated?
- Bitcoin’s Price Was Artificially Inflated, Fueling Skyrocketing Value, Researchers Say
- U.S. Launches Criminal Probe into Bitcoin Price Manipulation
- Researchers find that one person likely drove Bitcoin from $150 to $1,000
- Bitcoin Manipulation At Peak Before The Next Big Crash
- Much of Bitcoin’s 2017 boom was market manipulation, research says
How does modern bank robbery work?
There’s this quote: Give a man a gun and he can rob a bank. Give a man a bank and he can rob the world.
With Bitcoins it’s even more simpler. Just open a Bitcoin exchange where you can by Bitcoins with real money. Collect the Bitcoins of your customers. If you have enough tell them you are hacked and all their money is gone. Software experts know there is no complex software without bugs.
However, a Bitcoin Exchange gives you even easier manipulation options. In the event of a crash, you can offer your customers the option of converting Bitcoins into real money more quickly for a higher fee. Whoever does not respond to this blackmail can lose a lot of money.
Deflation is something bad, isn’t it?
Most economists agree that deflation is a bad thing. Ideally, the World Bank always aims for low inflation around 2%. In the case of deflation, the value of the currency rises constantly. Therefore, money is held back and the flow of goods comes to a standstill. Today’s real currencies constantly increase the amount of money, which causes inflation. With Bitcoins this is not possible, because the amount of money cannot be changed. So it happened that a few years ago people ordered a pizza for a Bitcoin that was worth over $1000 in the meantime.
What is a blockchain and how do they become Bitcoins?
Bitcoins are just a few bits. The blockchain logs who has sent which bits to whom and that this doesn’t happen twice. With real money, a bank ensures that the money is transferred correctly. Bitcoins are transferred in signed blocks for efficiency. The fastest miner, who solve a mathematical problem will sign the block. This block is then chained into a continuous log file. Since all participants have an interest in keeping Bitcoins alive, they store this log file decentrally. This makes forgery impossible. This technology makes offline transfers impossible.
Are Bitcoins suitable for time critical transfers?
No, neither the value nor the fees for the transaction are predictable over time. The time for the transfer depends on the volume of the transactions and how much you are willing to pay for a higher priority.
Are Bitcoins suitable as crisis currency?
No -> Global Protests Reveal Bitcoin’s Limitations – In a crisis, the state simply cuts off the Internet and electricity.
Are Bitcoins money?
I can put physical money under my mattress at home if I don’t trust the banks. Bitcoins are only worth something if someone is willing to exchange them for real money. Bitcoins are therefore more like a digital check.
Are Bitcoins suitable as currency at all?
The block size of the Bitcoins limits the number of transactions to a maximum of 7 per second. The transactions of VISA are estimated at about 25000 per second. Bitcoins are therefore completely unsuitable as a global currency.
Are there successful blockchain projects apart from cryptocurrencies?
Blockchains make no sense at all for internal company projects. Any attacker could rent a cloud at short notice and manipulate the block chains at will with the computing power.
Even for banks the own cryptocurrency makes no sense, because it makes the bank redundant.
Are Bitcoins just a bad joke?
After reading here that Bitcoins are not even suitable as currency, they can only be a bad joke, right? That’s what the Internet thought and invented as a parody the Dogecoin. This was only meant as a joke, but the value increased so fast that they are now traded as a serious cryptocurrency. This is finally also the explanation why today’s cryptocurrencies are worth something. As long as people invest real money in cryptocurrencies in the hope of wealth, there are also profiteers who take the money from them. This does not mean, of course, that you cannot profit from short-term increases, but that you will lose everything in the long term. Today’s cryptocurrencies are not sustainable and unsuitable as a global currency.
What are BlockChain / Bitcoins good for?
It is an interesting piece of technology that we can explore and learn from. Bitcoins are an interesting approach for a cryptocurrency. Possibly a global cryptocurrency based on Bitcoins will be developed in the future. But it could also be that mankind destroys itself first and then has completely different problems.
To store data in a tamper-proof manner, only processor power and decentralized storage locations are required.
- Use Hashes: Generate a hash over every line in a log file and publish it on another computer (for example on Twitter). Make a hard copy of the hash to make sure that it cannot be manipulated or deleted. Write the hash to a CD-R or DVR-R (not RW because RW can be manipulated or deleted). But be careful, this only shows the manipulation and the log file can still be deleted.
- Use Encryption: Create a random number and encrypt it. Together with the private key, this random number is stored on a USB stick and kept safe. Create a log file with one line. The first line is: Log = Data(“Log file initialization”) + Hash( RandomValue + Data)
Next line: Log = Data(“write the Log data here…”) + Hash( PreviousHash + Data)
In the next line, the hash of the previous line is taken as the new random value. It is very important that this value is deleted afterwards. Someone who wants to manipulate this file cannot manipulate the first line, because the random value of the USB stick is missing. This means that manipulation within this log file can always be proven.
- Improve the whole thing: Use time stamps signed by a server. Store the log file encrypted. Hide or camouflage the log file.

My evaluation and opinion:
MATRIX is a promising new protocol for messengers that still has some teething troubles. The worst thing is that there is no #PrivacyByDefault and you have to enable end-to-end encryption first. There are client implementations without encryption that should not be used. The most common client is RIOT and it supports all important features. RIOT can be installed via f-droid.org and supports encrypted group chats as well as video chats and file exchange.
The infrastructure of Matrix is decentralized. A major advantage over XMPP are federated group chats. This means that if a country wants to censor a group chat via XMPP, it can take the corresponding server off the network or block it. This is not possible with Matrix, because the group chat is still available on other Matrix servers. This makes the infrastructure very resistant to censorship of single countries.
The MATRIX server supports bridges to IRC, XMPP, Telegram and Signal (and other). This means that you can join group chats with these other messengers. One of the current development problems is the performance and scaling with many users. It is excellent that France is using MATRIX for its communication within the administration. Germany uses MATRIX for its military.
MATRIX can already be used productively if you make sure that the encryption is enabled.
Complete open source project (free software) and available on f-droid.org
Decentralized and censorship resistant. Video chats, file exchange and bridges to other messengers. The software is available for all major platforms: iOS, Android, Linux and Windows.
There is an end-to-end encryption if you enable it, which is not the default setting.
Performance and scaling problems with many users. Complicated server installation. Not #PrivacyByDefault. Interaction problems with different servers when shared group chats are used. They are often not listed in the search.
TL;DR: Telegram should only be used by those who have a very low need for security and only exchange unimportant messages.
My evaluation and opinion:
Surely it is better to use Telegram than WhatsApp but not much. First you need a mobile phone number to register. In most countries you won’t get an anonymous mobile phone number. But even an anonymous mobile phone number is useless if the police arrest you together with your mobile phone. Unfortunately the protesters in Hong Kong did not consider this. Despite this news, protest movements such as Extinction Rebellion and Fridays for Future unfortunately still rely on Telegram. This is dangerous because many states associate environmentalists with terrorists and have them under surveillance by their secret service. Another vulnerability is that a secure messenger is advertised, but group chats remain unencrypted. The central server structure makes it very easy to monitor the communication. It was sympathetic that they rebelled against the Russian government but finally in vain. Because of the central structure Telegram could finally be blocked by the government. A no go in the age of #PrivacyByDefault is that end-to-end encryption is only enabled when you select private chat. This should be the only option!
Telegram is only useful as a temporary message channel (use private chat for the encryption), if you change the messenger frequently for security reasons.
The client is free software. You can download the client via f-droid.org
The software is available for all major platforms: iOS, Android, Linux and Windows.
Video chats are possible with encryption.
There is an end-to-end encryption if you select private chat, which is not the default setting. The possibility to exchange any data without encryption.
You need a mobile phone number. Central structure and server software is not (open source) free. Not #PrivacyByDefault.
What I hate:
The worst is the unashamedly product placement. For example the fictional character Eleven (“El”) from “Stranger Things” was imputed an addiction to waffles. This was built in so sympathetically and funny that the naive viewer will not notice it. The successful series is actually a long-term advertising program.
What I like:
I like that Netflix also synchronizes series from other countries. In this way, we are not always served the uniform mash of Hollywood, where only the “American way of life” is propagated.
- Money Heist from Spain: La casa de papel
- 3% from Brazil
- Dark from Germany
- How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast) from Germany
- Better Than Us from Russia
- Ragnarök from Norway
- The Letter for the King from UK
- We are the Wave from Germany
- Caliphate from Sweden

Facebook is for people who have nothing to say and can’t write, so people who don’t want to read can share Likes.
First of all I would like to show you providers for one-time emails. You need them, if you want to read news behind a paywall (Sometimes you get some free articles for registration). First you have to register with an email and to click on an URI inside the mail to proof, that it’s your email address. The following email services will give you only temporally active email addresses and they will be deleted after some time. You avoid spam if you use them.
|anonbox.net||get an email||Is operated by Europe’s largest association of hackers.|
|Spamgourmet||Registration at the left side||Forwards emails to your real email address. You have to cancel the forwarding, if you receive spam.|
|Mailinator||get an email|
|Guerrilla Mail||get an email|
The first rule in Internet business is: Nothing is for free! It’s only free for a little fee. You pay with your private information. This information will be monitored and sold – it’s called big data.
The following email providers offer you an email address for free. They respect your privacy. There are nevertheless costs for server and administration. Think about whether you can of donating something to the providers. The listed providers are free of charge and you don’t pay with your private data. Some of them have also payed services with more features. The storage listed is for the free email service.
