Pierre Roberge on Twitter: "A quick grep on my box tells me this will cause a bit of a s|-|1tsh0w as it is in use in a majority of cryptocurrencies wallets. Although, in general, not solely used as random source. Thoughts? cc @waxwing__ @adam3us… "

Mustafa Al-Bassam on Twitter: "This vulnerable random number generator appears to be used by Bitcoin brain wallets: However, isn't vulnerable, because they forked the library before it added a secure PRNG, so they wrote their own: "

  1. What are you on about Mr. Hunt? FB has been benefiting the Dems for years and they were all fine with it. The moment the Republicains simply beat them at their own game then it’s cue outrage. There is zero evidence of the Russians having any effect upon the US elections at all but a mountain of evidence of Facebook blatantly censoring libertarians and conservatives. Zuckerberg was squirming under the grilling he got for this on the hill but you seem not to have noticed this aspect of the affair at all.

  2. we need a square dart board with all caps, lower, and numbers, and throw darts, then you can have fun and create your random key. 🙂 biz idea, someone build it! With a pamphlet about starting characters for segwit addresses .

    • true randomness and offline, also we need something like a calculator, that will sha256 your private key, something NOT capable of wifi, its only function is sha256 (maybe some other hashes) and converting to segwit addresses. (problems with current stuff, is keyloggers, malware, need to download online software, and “random” generators.

      Maybe I’m wrong, but this could be one simple solution to the problem, that is completely offline, random, and fun. I would love to hear anyone’s thoughts. 🙂

  3. Wonderful again! The format is great. Sometimes is under 10 minutes, but today was just shy of 45.

    Thank you for the dedication, the rosy glasses you wear and for all of it.

  4. Th BoA story is likely bad for bitcoin.
    – BoA bans company A from doing business. Aka censorship.
    – Vocal proponents of ban amplify how successful the ban is (whether it is or not)
    – Bitcoin offers zero censorship and would allow company A to do business
    – Aforementioned proponents use this as a reason why bitcoin shouldn’t be allowed.

  5. True, “It’s a slow database” – all blockchains. And if some get slightly faster, that’s nice, but it’s the other attributes that make any particular blockchain valuable. The main “other attribute”? Unstoppability. 🙂
    Btw. a Facebook token is the only way out for them. Users get paid in tokens, and the tokens determine the relative value of Facebook.
