Technically other apps can implement the BitBox02 on mobile, but as far as I know, only the BitBoxApp supports it on Android. On PC you can use all the previously mentioned apps. Thanks for the feedback. I take it you are using a desktop instead of a laptop? I agree that the cable might not be ideal for that, but on a laptop or phone you won't even need the cable. Make sure the BitBoxApp is closed when you use Sparrow because for security reasons the BitBox02 can only communicate with one software at a time.

Yes, it’s like every time MetaMask signs a transaction it prompts you to then review and sign that transaction on the hardware device. Even if the PC is compromised and showing you some fake transaction info, the screen on the trezor will show you exactly what you’re being asked to sign. Nothing can be signed if not by the device.

Hey man, hindsight 20/20 and all, but getting 8k twitter followers is like... 15 bucks? 50? Not exactly a proof of anything. For future reference. Best of luck with everything. If something was accessed once, it can be accessed again. Wallet, e-mail, anything. Likely the "game" managed to hijack cooies/session tokens on your PC, and from there they can do all kinda nasty shit. Reinstall windows, like fromthe ground up, full format the drive it was on, dont back up anything thats not a picture, or video. After a fresh windows install, create a new chrome/firefox/whatever browser you use sync account, cause if there is a non-zero chance they managed to get a hold of your synced pwds. From there log into every mail you have, change password, enable 2 Factor Authentication, preferably phone number + sms. Once you cleared your e-mails, move onto social media: facebook, instagram, twitter, whatever you have. Change. Every. Password. Hacked social media accounts are sold as "organic followers", and especially instagram is really annoying to get rid of, cause Meta has a tendency of locking your account when they sense shit is going down, and even if you regain control and change pwd, change 2FA, they will not let you unfollow anything the scammers followed on your behalf for a whole WEEK. My insta feed was indian accounts and wanna-be dance-influencers for a week when my instagram got token hijacked. Had to reinstall windows, and spent 2 days changing every goddamn e-mail, social media account, steam, whatever launcher you can think of, and website password you can think of. They even tried to get into my League accounts trough e-mail. Seriously, I would recommend just fully nuking your PC. Definitely dont just use the same windows install, if your PC was compromised once, its STILL compromised until you start from fresh.

A hardware wallet is essentially an air gapped PC. The beauty of a hardware wallet is they do not have WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, Ethernet ports etc physically installed. Are you willing to bet all of your bitcoin that these features are actually turned off when you disable them in the software. What if someone finds it and attaches it to the net. I previously used a laptop as a hardware wallet with the WiFi module removed (it doesn't have Bluetooth) and it worked fine but as an IT person as well I can guarantee you'll appreciate how great the seedsigner is!

Mentions:#PC

Yesterday's PC update affecting banks was an interesting sign for Bitcoin

Mentions:#PC

Besides any physical features, I hate how reliant it is on the app. I think you need the app to be able to login to it. This makes it harder to connect to a third party app like Sparrow. On my PC, it usually takes a couple of tries to get it to login. Coldcard? No issues at all. No app requirement. Login on the device as long as it has power source. Connects right away too. Coldcard is a brilliant device that is both minimalist where it needs to be and complex where it needs to be.  The  tap and hold system is inferior to Coldcard as well. Coldcard (mk4)s calculator design has the added advantage of having more buttons available making it probably the fastest wallet to navigate.  The male usb-c end is also a disadvantage to having a female usb-c port. Now all the sudden you need a connector, which it comes with, but you probably don't have backups whereas you likely have some extra usb-c cables. This is a disadvantage compared to all other hardware wallets. I get why people like it. It looks cool with the usb design. But it is overpriced and overrated. I'm genuinely surprised when people recommend considering how it actually costs MORE than a Coldcard but is far inferior. (I'm also genuinely surprised when people recommend the Jade but that is a separate issue).

Well, how do you perform a transaction when needed like sending some bitcoin then if the PC is air gapped?

If you have multiple PC/Mac/iOS devices not in use, look into Nunchuk wallet! It can be used to create a multi-sig wallet using those devices and that combo would be more secure than a single hardware wallet.

I actually have a HW wallet, but it concerns me a bit. Like it’s one more thing to go wrong vs having a completely formatted PC and never connecting it online unless I’m updating it for security patches or sending BTC. Thoughts?

Mentions:#PC#BTC

Well, the camera for one is useless. I don't know if they've improved it since but I wanted to use airgapped and that wasn't happening. The USB connection was likewise hit or miss. It could be my PC but it doesn't take other signing devices nearly as long to connect. There was another issue as well with the software that's hard to explain. Overall, my impression was that it was cheaply made and poorly designed. 

Mentions:#PC

I've tested multiple hardware devices - Bitbox02, Ledger Nano (S and X), Jade, Trezor (basic Model One), and Coldcard mk4. Trezor and Coldcard are the easiest to use with fewest connection issues (to Sparrow Wallet). Bitbox02 is clunky and it disconnects too often from my PC and also requires a third party app. My experience with Jade was bad. Almost unusable. Does end up working but not worth it. Ledgers are a shady company with lax privacy and it seems optimized for shiitcoinery. Devices can be prone to errors. Definitely do not ever download Ledger Live but I think they might make you initially to install their firmware.

That's because some sneaky person worked out a way of separating nodes and miners. You mined using the cpu on your node at the beginning. Asics centralised mining to farms while it was designed that everyone could mine on their home PC node when not gaming

Just looked up the beelink mini PC those are impressive devices! 16gb ram and internal cooling included that’s great. Thanks for the info! What operating system would it run? Would you be able to boot a free OS like umbrel from an SD card? That was one of the thinks I liked about the Raspberry pi build. Flash an SD card, slot it on the board and you’re off and running.

Mentions:#PC#OS#SD

Hm how so? I can price out a pi node for about $200-250 last time I built one which is pretty in expensive in my opinion. I’m talking about assembling your own, not pre-made. Unless you have access to free e-waste I’m not sure how sourcing an old laptop or pc will be cheaper then that, plus an external hard drive. Also isn’t a raspberry pi considered a mini PC?

Provided your Multisig wallet is "watch only" - lets say you have 2of3 where all cosigners are hardware wallets and SparrowWallet never has your mnemonic seeds/XPRIVs, then no other software can steal your funds provided you never enter your mnemonics into your PC / Mac / Phone / WebBrowser / Password manager / Cloud / Email

Mentions:#PC

Yes, you are misunderstanding it. A hot wallet is an app running on your PC or on your phone and it stores the private key(s) on this device. Hot means it is at least sometimes connected to the internet and it is possible that there is malware installed that can send the key files to somewhere. A cold wallet is never directly connected to a network and it does not contain software that could in principle transfer the private keys. It usually contains a secure element which is a special chip that encapsulates the keys. A hardware wallet never exposes the private key to the outside world.

Mentions:#PC

If you don't sell then you don't pay tax. Transfer from one wallet (exchange) to a self sovereign wallet is not a taxable event but is the smartest move you could make. Try a Canadian made ColdCard for the best hardware wallet. Pair it with either Sparrow (PC) or Nunchuk (mobile) to manage your UTXOs. Also take a look at BillBitcoin for the best Canadian exchange (Bitcoin only and non custodial)

Mentions:#PC

That doesn't make sense. How would a hacker know the identities of several unconnected wallet creators and know that the creators, and any friends or family who might have access and spot the wallets being drained, are dead? Even if they knew all that, how would they be able to access these wallets, which are unlikely to still be installed on someone's Windows PC, where it might be possible to install some malware to remotely access the PC?

The odds of generating a Bitcoin address with a predefined 7-letter prefix are 1 in 58^7 or approximately 1 in 6.5 * 10^11. On a modern PC generating 1-2 million addresses per second, it would take somewhere between 4 to 8 days.

Exactly. It doesn’t matter if Bitcoin is the Apex asset. Real estate is right up there with Bitcoin. They talk about third party risk but they don’t talk about self custody risk? You have to put a real effort in self custody, I for example have a BTC only PC, hardware wallet, seed phrase hidden, contingency plan if I die. Got to update hardware, gotta keep my mouth shut, avoid phishing scams, wrench attacks etc.

Mentions:#BTC#PC

That seems a bit short sighted. If you had assets that generate wealth each month, they could be used to buy more bitcoin. Just holding bitcoin doesn't pay for more bitcoin. My equity investment portfolio "earned" more than my wife did last year and I can use that to buy more bitcoin than most can from their salary. Wealth generating assets have one advantage over bitcoin. The wealth they generate can buy more bitcoin! Holding bitcoin doesn't let you buy bitcoin. I know some here think you'll be able to get infinite loans against it. But I struggle with that because if I had capital to loan out to people with bitcoin, wouldn't I just buy the bitcoin myself. To lend against bitcoin you would have to understand it. If you understand it you aren't keeping a load of cash around to lend out. Your buying it. I'm the oldest of millenials, on the cusp. I had a Sony Walkman but have never known a world without a PC, even if it was using dial up over a modem lol. I feel more like a millenial than a gen x - my older brother is a proper 80s kid. Anyway, I paid into a pension for a couple of years in my first job in the 00s and then it got left. In the UK each new company typically starts us up a new individual pension. This first one is now worth £110k. That's not bad really. I have several larger ones now too so my retirement is on track to have £1m plus behind it just from working a normal job. And then I have bitcoin too. If it works out, I have a luxurious retirement. If it doesn't, I have a comfortable one. Don't put all your eggs in one basket. Draw a comfortable baseline first. Either way I win so I don't see why people take these crazy risks on a single asset.

I use a Trezor hardware wallet with my windows PC I use Rabby chrome extension or MetaMask for obscure shit and connect them to “Hardware Device” both sides f those wallets use the same trezor. They are interchangeable. I prefer Rabby for the transaction simulator before signing a transaction. (If your new to crypto, Rabby makes it super easy to use ETH and ETH layer 2 chains) I then sign into GMX with Rabby and make a “one click trading” wallet in the interface. That will be the hot wallet that signs transactions backed by funds in my cold wallets on my trezor. Then I fund the one click wallet with some WETH to pay gas for fees when I trade. Now that it’s all set up the trading is super easy. Just setting my buy and sell limits and adjusting positions all from the GMX one click interface without needing to use the trezor each time to sign the transactions. It makes it super simple to pop in on a positions adjust a Stop Loss or Take Profit or even adjust collateral of open futures positions all while not needing to constantly pull out the hardware wallet

I wish they made it easier... So much to get your head around with this stuff. What sort of wallet do you use? On a mobile or a Windows PC?

I recovered an old PC, I was pretty curious younger and i have some little flashbacks about did something with bitcoin, I wanna be sure.

Mentions:#PC

This almost happened to me but my job saved me. I was working for the Dept of Navy back in 2018. I sent a request to Coinbase that I wanted to increase my withdrawal limits. A coinbase impersonator with an Indian accent calls me to help increase this withdrawal limit. Somehow this impersonator intercepted my message. I am not sure how that happened but I am most certain that it is Yahoo's poor secured email server. At that time, I really wasn't that educated with phishing or spoofing scams like I am today. The coinbase impersonator wanted to connect directly to my laptop and have access to my coinbase account. This would've been a terrible mistake. I attemped to give him access but because I was on my Navy laptop, our work protocol prohibits any type of connection which makes sense...it's the federal government. I told him we would have to wait until after work when I get on my PC. But those hours had me thinking. Why would Coinbase to connect to my laptop to change something as simple as withdrawal limits which is a mechanism that's completely on their end? Then I started researching and on Coinbase's website, they state clearly they will NEVER need to connect to your latop. So I knew it was a scam. But just to confirm, I decided to entertain this coinbase impersonator. He asked for my email address and then asked for my email address password which of course I refused...and that was the definitive proof that this was a scammer. There are companies like Microsoft and Apple that will ask to remotely connect to your laptop which makes this a valid possibility and I've allowed a legit Microsoft rep to connect to my latop and they've helped. But requesting your email password should never be asked of you by any company or any person. These scammers are so sophisticated, they know how to intercept questions for technical assistance and use it to their advantage. This wouldn't happen to me today after 6 years of strenuous education on scamming and phishing. I was a novice back then. One thing I no longer use is Yahoo email for my Coinbase as it is ripe for security issues. Gmail isn't perfect but it's a whole lot better.

#TRON Con-Arguments Below is a TRON con-argument written by CreepToeCurrentSea. > TRON is a decentralized, open-source blockchain-based operating system with smart contract functionality, a proof-of-stake consensus algorithm, and its own cryptocurrency, Tronix (TRX). Justin Sun founded it in March 2014, and it has been overseen and supervised by the TRON Foundation, a non-profit organization in Singapore founded the same year. It began as an Ethereum-based ERC-20 token before migrating to its own blockchain in 2018. > > # CONS > > **Whitepaper Plagiarism** > > In January 2018, Tron's developers were accused of plagiarism after many sections of the Tron whitepaper appeared nearly identical to IPFS and Filecoin technical documentation. IPFS is an acronym for InterPlanetary File System. Juan Benet, CEO of Protocol Labs, which develops IFPS tools and services, revealed on Twitter in early January 2018 that Tron's whitepaper authors did not properly cite references and that the document was "mostly copied" from other projects. Even the equations and formulas mentioned in the first version of Tron's whitepaper were identical to those found in IPFS documentation. Sun claimed to have a "very detailed" reference to the most recent Chinese version of the Tron whitepaper. He also claimed that the Tron paper was translated into other languages by volunteers who may have overlooked important details. Just as Vitalik had also sarcastically said in twitter regarding the teams copy-pasting abilities, this just goes to show how un-genuine their team appears even making the most basic of mistakes. > > **Question of Vulnerability** > > A barrage of requests sent by a single PC could be used to squeeze the power of the blockchain's CPU, overload the memory, and perform a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack, according to HackerOne. "Using a single machine, an attacker could send DDOS attack to all or 51 percent of the Super Representative (SR) node and render Tron network unusable or unavailable," the claim goes. While TRON is somewhat better in marketing compared to other cryptocurrencies, it falls short on one of the most important pillars for an effective one, that of which is security. To hinder a blockchain with just one computer is the polar opposite of what you want a cryptocurrency to be. > > **Un-Stablecoin** > > TRON's native stablecoin "USDD" de-pegged to the US dollar earlier this year, falling to as low as 91 cents. Its design is uncannily similar to Terra's stablecoin, UST, which lost its price peg and imploded a month ago, wiping out $40 billion in market value. If it continues to follow UST's path considering how similar they are in function and structure, one could assume they also have a ticking algorithmic time bomb in the making. > > **Final Thoughts** > > It seems that TRON has a knack for idolizing (to the point of almost copying their work) other projects both in and out of the crypto-sphere.

With a personal PC it's essentially impossible. Not as "essentially impossible" as guessing a private key of course, but it's not worth even trying. Anyone who wants to lottery mine might want to look into getting a BitAxe. Cheap, and gets you 600gigahash or more depending on options.

it's very unlikely but not impossible. Years go PC mining was enough but then ASICs came along. ASICs were designed to do one thing really well - mine Bitcoin. The most powerful Bitcoin ASICs can hash at more than 400 terahashes per second (12 zeros). The latest GPUs, on the other hand, hash at about 120 megahashes per second (one million)

I'm not sure how good this news is. Sony is the very company that was an early user of ECDSA (part of bitcoin's guts) and blew their implementation so bad that they were a case study in how not to do security and cryptography. Also, Japanese exchanges in general are pretty famous for being constantly hacked, while sony is on a brokism rampage destroying their profitability. I suppose the hard problems include a culture that is highly windows-PC centric and the lack of a sub-culture of crypto-anarchists. IMO, they need a lot more boorish frazzle bearded cypherpunk types with uncompromising attitudes to tighten up their security.

Yes of course. Hardware wallets just sign transactions offline. That's all they do. Your Bitcoin is not actually stored on the device. That's why I prefer open source software wallets as I don't care about signing transactions offline. I have proper measures on my PC which should be enough security.

I’m going to preface this by saying I don’t believe crypto has actually solved anything. Crypto and NFT’s are simply an avenue that people have experimented with to solve some of the big challenges in gaming. Probably the biggest use case for gaming is “you don’t own your items”. We saw this in every online game from the beginning of time. Developers are at war with real money traders and are constantly trying to eliminate them from their ecosystem. The pushback from gamers is that if they grinded for that sword, they should be able to sell it. It has value because they put in the effort, however, it’s all in the game so they don’t own it. Some attempts have been made to integrate it as a feature, like Diablo’s real money auction house, but ultimately were removed from the game because of legal issues. What if the items had a real world counterpart that could easily be traded? The players DO own the items and the devs aren’t responsible for that trading platform, so they get around gambling and sales tax laws. That’s a win for everybody, but it comes with a huge host of other issues like no character restoration, minting fees, etc… Another use case is older games may lose functionality as the servers are shut down. If you had a game that was truly operating on the blockchain without the need for dedicated server support, that game could theoretically go on forever as long as that blockchain exists and the front end UI is compatible with OS (mobile, PC, whatever), which you might even be able to open source. Imagine a true community developed experience with hard-coded, trustworthy mechanics on chain that could go on forever! It’s possible mini games could even be built on the UI side that utilized the platform and now you’ve got this neat theme-park environment where everybody owns their assets, new stuff can be openly developed, and there’s no account management burden, customer support, or server maintenance. It’s cheaper for the dev to run because its cost is distributed.

Sparrow wallet with Seedsigner, and Cote as a server. Seedsigner is 100% air gapped, and your seed NEVER touches a PC, nor the internet. This is the way. You won’t find a more secure and cheaper way to store access to your bitcoin. You can build your own seed shiner device with just a few cheap electronic parts. The seedsigner software is free and open source as well. https://youtu.be/qxOhCvot77I?si=eztktsK8nWB2H4wC https://btc-hardware-solutions.square.site

No, having the seed phrase gives them full access. That's why I suggested leaving one word out. Even if somehow they hacked Bitwarden or your PC has malware, they don't have the full seed phrase. The Trezor PIN just prevents petty theft like when someone comes across your Trezor and plugs it in.

Personally I live on the road and I'm not always online. Once I settle down in one place I'll probably set up a node, though 5+ years ago when I wasn't on the road I just didn't feel that bothered to do it. I don't think ongoing running costs would be a problem for anyone, as there aren't really any ongoing running costs of running a node that I can think of. A little bit of electricity but not more than anything else. Hassle of setting it up is probably a hurdle for people. Seems like some people find this hard. The main hurdle I would think is hardware. Of course it's cheap to set up a node, that's the whole point of keeping it decentralized, make running nodes easy. But in this day and age when most people just have a laptop rather than a desktop, a laptop isn't going to be online all the time, so for a lot of people running a node would require getting what would likely just be a standalone desktop PC. So even though its easy, that is going to involve buying a computer just for this purpose, which makes it a pretty expensive setup for most people.

The Cold Card and Passport are updated via SD card. The source code is open source, so if you want to you could even read the code. You don't even have to update the devices. Once you've set them up you never have to update them. They're both also the best in class for features. Compared to Ledger Nano, which has no on-board features besides signing. And every time you wipe the wallet it wipes the firmware so you HAVE to connect to an internet connected PC and update using their proprietary software.

It can be just like that when running on your local PC. Kinda pointless doing that IMO. This is what I did, I had a spare mini PC laying around so I installed Umbrel there so I could leave it on 24/7 without much concern about power consumption or anything. Then I took it a step further and setup Sparrow wallet software on my local PC to connect to my own private electrum server (the Umbrel PC). Ultimately this journey was also along the same lines of getting a hardware wallet; using my own block explorer and having my own node is kinda neat when it comes to trust.

Don't have a PC -- what's the work cheapest option?

Every time you open your wallet app to look at your balance, the app has to connect to a node to fetch your info, which means you're telling somebody else which addresses are yours. If you run a node, you can set up many apps to use your own node instead of somebody else's. That means nobody but you knows which addresses you're looking up. That means you get privacy. Running a node can be cheap, too. Pick up a used low power micro PC and install Start9. Start9 is free and open source. Once you've got Start9 up & running, do three 1-click installs: Bitcoin Core. Electrs. And Mempool That'll give you your own node and your own blockchain explorer. I finally set up my own node earlier this year, and I laugh at myself now for not doing it sooner. It was so easy, and cheap. I paid around $130 for the micro PC, but I now realize I went overboard. I could have easily gotten one for under $100.

Not really, although most on here will tell you that you should. You'll need one to sell or spend your bitcoin, though, in any case. But if you're just holding? Nope. Anyway, here is an article with step by step instructions on how to set it up. [https://news.bitcoin.com/how-to-set-up-bitcoin-paper-wallet/](https://news.bitcoin.com/how-to-set-up-bitcoin-paper-wallet/) However, I would add a few extra layers of security; For example, although I WOULD use [bitaddress.org](http://bitaddress.org) to download the zipped generator, I would download it on a PC that you're NOT going to use to generate the public and private keys. I would download it, put the zipfile onto a brand new flash drive, then take that flash drive and copy the zipfile onto a PC that a) has very robust anti malware and anti virus, and b) will never go online again (its even better if it has never been online, but as long as you never go online again with it, your addresses are pretty much 100 percent secure). And from that point I would follow the instructions on that website, with one more caveat: I would NOT print them out on a printer (the public key sure, but not the private). I would take an old digital camera, one that has never had internet access and uses a microSD card, and I would take a pic of the public and private keys you've generated. I would then insert that microSD into my 'NEVER PUTTING ONLINE AGAIN' device/laptop/whatever, and store the pics there, in clear. Then I would burn the microSD card. At that point, the password to your laptop/device/whatever becomes your chokepoint for your bitcoin. Have a good robust password, and again, never put it online again. Last point, BACKUPS: you'll want to backup the private keys (the public keys you can just copy and paste anywhere, as you will need that to buy crypto - more on that later). To this end, get you some kind of encrypted USB and put the pictures of the keys onto it (again, from your 'NEVER PUTTING ONLINE AGAIN' device/laptop/whatever). Do it once, twice, however many times it takes for you to feel secure that your keys are safe from theft, from flood, from USB corruption. Have fun with it. Figure out other ways to back them up (hell, write them on a piece of paper, wrap the paper in four or five layers of plastic, bury them in the yard...or put into a safe deposit box). But use your own discretion. You're your own bank. VERY LAST POINT: BUYING BITCOIN: There are many ways to do it. The way I've done it many times (and didn't require any kind of hardware wallet) was, I take the public key, put it into this search: [https://www.blockchain.com/explorer/](https://www.blockchain.com/explorer/) And then click on the BTC result. From that page I generate a QR code (click on the little QR Code Icon) and take a pic of the QR code with my phone. Then I go down to my local bitcoin ATM (which in my country allows you to remain anonymous as long as you buy only up to $1000 worth a day) put the QR code from my phones screen up to the ATM reader, and buy the bitcoin. ABSOLUTELY LAST POINT I PROMISE: People will say to only deposit bitcoin onto your public key once. If later you want to buy more, to use another address. It IS true that the more times you deposit onto any given address, the higher the profile of that address, so yes there is added risk. However, I had one address that I put money onto four different times. It's still there. But again, you're your own bank. Do some research on the why's and wherefore's, and use your own discretion. Good luck!

The difference between a hot wallet like Electrum, and a cold wallet is the way the private key is stored, and the fact that your PC or phone on which the wallet sits is an internet connected device. A cold wallet is designed to protect the private key and is offline most of the time. So yes a cold wallet is much safer by design and worth getting if you have a decent amount of bitcoin.
