Groestlcoin 6th Anniversary Release

Introduction

Dear Groestlers, it goes without saying that 2020 has been a difficult time for millions of people worldwide. The groestlcoin team would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone our best to everyone coping with the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19. Let it bring out the best in us all and show that collectively, we can conquer anything.
The centralised banks and our national governments are facing unprecedented times with interest rates worldwide dropping to record lows in places. Rest assured that this can only strengthen the fundamentals of all decentralised cryptocurrencies and the vision that was seeded with Satoshi's Bitcoin whitepaper over 10 years ago. Despite everything that has been thrown at us this year, the show must go on and the team will still progress and advance to continue the momentum that we have developed over the past 6 years.
In addition to this, we'd like to remind you all that this is Groestlcoin's 6th Birthday release! In terms of price there have been some crazy highs and lows over the years (with highs of around $2.60 and lows of $0.000077!), but in terms of value– Groestlcoin just keeps getting more valuable! In these uncertain times, one thing remains clear – Groestlcoin will keep going and keep innovating regardless. On with what has been worked on and completed over the past few months.

UPDATED - Groestlcoin Core 2.18.2

This is a major release of Groestlcoin Core with many protocol level improvements and code optimizations, featuring the technical equivalent of Bitcoin v0.18.2 but with Groestlcoin-specific patches. On a general level, most of what is new is a new 'Groestlcoin-wallet' tool which is now distributed alongside Groestlcoin Core's other executables.
NOTE: The 'Account' API has been removed from this version which was typically used in some tip bots. Please ensure you check the release notes from 2.17.2 for details on replacing this functionality.

How to Upgrade?

If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), then run the installer.
OSX
If you are running an older version, shut it down. Wait until it has completely shut down (which might take a few minutes for older versions), run the dmg and drag Groestlcoin Core to Applications.

ALL NEW - Groestlcoin Moonshine iOS/Android Wallet

Built with React Native, Moonshine utilizes Electrum-GRS's JSON-RPC methods to interact with the Groestlcoin network.
GRS Moonshine's intended use is as a hot wallet. Meaning, your keys are only as safe as the device you install this wallet on. As with any hot wallet, please ensure that you keep only a small, responsible amount of Groestlcoin on it at any given time.

ALL NEW! – HODL GRS Android Wallet

HODL GRS connects directly to the Groestlcoin network using SPV mode and doesn't rely on servers that can be hacked or disabled.
HODL GRS utilizes AES hardware encryption, app sandboxing, and the latest security features to protect users from malware, browser security holes, and even physical theft. Private keys are stored only in the secure enclave of the user's phone, inaccessible to anyone other than the user.
Simplicity and ease-of-use is the core design principle of HODL GRS. A simple recovery phrase (which we call a Backup Recovery Key) is all that is needed to restore the user's wallet if they ever lose or replace their device. HODL GRS is deterministic, which means the user's balance and transaction history can be recovered just from the backup recovery key.

ALL NEW! – GroestlcoinSeed Savior

Groestlcoin Seed Savior is a tool for recovering BIP39 seed phrases.
This tool is meant to help users with recovering a slightly incorrect Groestlcoin mnemonic phrase (AKA backup or seed). You can enter an existing BIP39 mnemonic and get derived addresses in various formats.
To find out if one of the suggested addresses is the right one, you can click on the suggested address to check the address' transaction history on a block explorer.

ALL NEW! – Vanity Search Vanity Address Generator

NOTE: NVidia GPU or any CPU only. AMD graphics cards will not work with this address generator.
VanitySearch is a command-line Segwit-capable vanity Groestlcoin address generator. Add unique flair when you tell people to send Groestlcoin. Alternatively, VanitySearch can be used to generate random addresses offline.
If you're tired of the random, cryptic addresses generated by regular groestlcoin clients, then VanitySearch is the right choice for you to create a more personalized address.
VanitySearch is a groestlcoin address prefix finder. If you want to generate safe private keys, use the -s option to enter your passphrase which will be used for generating a base key as for BIP38 standard (VanitySearch.exe -s "My PassPhrase" FXPref). You can also use VanitySearch.exe -ps "My PassPhrase" which will add a crypto secure seed to your passphrase.
VanitySearch may not compute a good grid size for your GPU, so try different values using -g option in order to get the best performances. If you want to use GPUs and CPUs together, you may have best performances by keeping one CPU core for handling GPU(s)/CPU exchanges (use -t option to set the number of CPU threads).

This 2020 version uses the new VanitySearch to generate not only legacy addresses (F prefix) but also Bech32 addresses (grs1 prefix).

ALL NEW! – Electrum Personal Server

Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server aims to make using Electrum Groestlcoin wallet more secure and more private. It makes it easy to connect your Electrum-GRS wallet to your own full node.
It is an implementation of the Electrum-grs server protocol which fulfils the specific need of using the Electrum-grs wallet backed by a full node, but without the heavyweight server backend, for a single user. It allows the user to benefit from all Groestlcoin Core's resource-saving features like pruning, blocks only and disabled txindex. All Electrum-GRS's feature-richness like hardware wallet integration, multi-signature wallets, offline signing, seed recovery phrases, coin control and so on can still be used, but connected only to the user's own full node.
Full node wallets are important in Groestlcoin because they are a big part of what makes the system be trust-less. No longer do people have to trust a financial institution like a bank or PayPal, they can run software on their own computers. If Groestlcoin is digital gold, then a full node wallet is your own personal goldsmith who checks for you that received payments are genuine.
Full node wallets are also important for privacy. Using Electrum-GRS under default configuration requires it to send (hashes of) all your Groestlcoin addresses to some server. That server can then easily spy on your transactions. Full node wallets like Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server would download the entire blockchain and scan it for the user's own addresses, and therefore don't reveal to anyone else which Groestlcoin addresses they are interested in.
Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can also broadcast transactions through Tor which improves privacy by resisting traffic analysis for broadcasted transactions which can link the IP address of the user to the transaction. If enabled this would happen transparently whenever the user simply clicks "Send" on a transaction in Electrum-grs wallet.
Note: Currently Groestlcoin Electrum Personal Server can only accept one connection at a time.

UPDATED – Groestlcoin Sentinel 3.5.06 (Android)

Sentinel accepts XPUB's, YPUB'S, ZPUB's and individual Groestlcoin address. Once added you will be able to view balances, view transactions, and (in the case of XPUB's, YPUB's and ZPUB's) deterministically generate addresses for that wallet.
Groestlcoin Sentinel is a fork of Groestlcoin Samourai Wallet with all spending and transaction building code removed.

9 Awesome, Time-Tested Tips for Ultimate Bitcoin Safety

No, you’re not paranoid. Having your Bitcoin stolen is a real risk. And it’s a more common problem than many in the crypto community would like to admit. Hackers and phishers have already stolen billions of dollars’ worth of Bitcoin. And while each case is unique, better security measures could have prevented most of these thefts. So to help you avoid the agony of losing your hard-earned crypto, we're compiled this easy-to-follow list of tips for safe Bitcoin storage.

Avoid Online Wallets like the Plague

We get it. Having to choose, set up, and configure a software wallet can seem like a hassle and a massive waste of time. Why not just use a web wallet instead? There’s no need to set anything up or worry about software compatibility. And many exchanges give you one by default when you register, so you don’t even need to make a separate account. Isn't that just the most convenient thing ever?
And yes, web wallets are super convenient. But you know what else they are? A bona fide magnet for criminals.
Often holding millions’ of dollars’ worth of Bitcoin, web wallets are the prime target of hackers. And with the bounty sometimes measuring in the tens of millions of dollars, it does not seem like this will change soon.
So our advice to you is to avoid web wallets like the plague.

Upgrade to a Safer Software Wallet

When it comes to security, not all software wallets are created equal. And it’s not even close. Some software wallets offer top-tier security and are a hacker's nightmare. Others are borderline useless when it comes to keeping your Bitcoin safe. It can be tempting to choose a wallet based on its ease of use or appealing design, but you should always base your choice primarily on security.
And when it comes to security, our experts have a clear favorite. That favorite is Electrum.
Designed for crypto enthusiasts, Electrum doesn't have the prettiest user interface and is not the easiest to use. But what it lacks in design and accessibility it more than makes up for in safety and security. If you invest the time and patience needed to learn to work with it, Electrum will become your trusted partner for many years to come. Our experts cannot recommend it enough.
But if you feel that Electrum is more than you can chew, we recommend Exodus as a more user friendly alternative. Striking a good balance between security and accessibility, Exodus offers much better security than most of its competition without the high learning curve of Electrum.

Keep Your Devices in the Best Possible Security Condition

No matter how secure your software wallet is, there's little it can do to protect you if your device gets hacked. So if you plan to use Bitcoin regularly, you must make sure your devices are in the best possible security condition. While the exact specifics will vary based on your device and operating system, in general, you must ensure your device has at least the following:

Consider Using a Dedicated Linux Machine for Your Bitcoin Transactions

Taking things a step further, many users elect to have a dedicated machine used for nothing but Bitcoin transactions. In general, this is a very good idea. And it’s an even better one if that dedicated machine runs a Linux distribution.
Not only is Linux known for being very secure, its comparatively miniscule user base also makes it a less appealing target for hackers. Put simply, hacking is a numbers game. As a hacker, you want your attack to target as many people as possible. So it is in hackers’ best interests to write malicious code for Windows and macOS, since the vast majority of people use those operating systems. As a result, Linux users tend to get targeted less. Which is not to say that Linux machines don’t get malware and viruses. They do. It’s just that, statistically, you are less likely to get one.

Keep Your Bitcoin Machine Offline

Taking the last tip a step further, you might opt to keep your Bitcoin machine offline at all times. This eliminates the vast majority of hacking-related risks.
In its simplest form, a setup with a dedicated offline machine would consist of the following:
A typical transaction using this setup would look something like this:
  1. Create the transaction on your web-enabled computer.
  2. Insert the flash drive into your main machine and transfer the transaction data to it.
  3. Take the flash drive out of the web-enabled machine and connect it to the offline machine.
  4. Sign the transaction on the offline machine.
  5. Insert the flash drive with the signed transaction back into the online-enabled machine to take the signed transaction online.

Get a Multisignature (Multisig) Bitcoin Wallet

It’s extremely important to minimize your risk of getting hacked. But what happens if your private key does end up in the hands of a hacker? Does that automatically mean you have to kiss your hard-earned Bitcoin goodbye? Not necessarily. At least not if you’ve taken the preventive measure of creating a Multisig address.
Multisig is an extra layer of protection that can help you protect your funds in case your main private key falls into the hands of wrongdoers. Rather than having one private key, a Multisig address has several. In most setups, to sign a transaction, you will need to possess two or more of these keys. This means that even if any one of your private keys gets compromised, the hacker still won’t be able to steal your Bitcoin.
The most common Multisig setup is one called 2-of-3. You generate three private keys. To authorize a transaction, you will need to be in possession of two of these keys. The first key you store on your smartphone or computer for easy access. The second key you give to a second-layer authentication service. And the third key is your backup. You use it in case you lose access to your main key.
To find out more, read our dedicated article about Multisig.

PSA: Clearing up some misconceptions about full nodes

It's time to clear up some misconceptions floating around about full nodes.
Myth: There are only about 5500 full nodes worldwide
This number comes from this site and it measured by trying to probe every nodes on their open ports.
Problem is, not all nodes actually have open ports that can be probed. Either because they are behind firewalls or because their users have configured them to not listen for connections.
Nobody knows how many full nodes there are, since many people don't know how to forward ports behind a firewall, and bandwidth can be costly, its quite likely that the number of nodes with closed ports is at least another several thousand.
Nodes with open ports are able to upload blocks to new full nodes. In all other ways they are the same as nodes with closed ports. But because open-port-nodes can be measured and closed-port-nodes cannot, some members of the bitcoin community have been mistaken into believing that open-port-nodes are that matters.
Myth: This number of nodes matters and/or is too low.
Nodes with open ports are useful to the bitcoin network because they help bootstrap new nodes by uploading historical blocks, they are a measure of bandwidth capacity. Right now there is no shortage of bandwidth capacity, and if there was it could be easily added by renting cloud servers.
The problem is not bandwidth or connections, but trust, security and privacy. Let me explain.
Full nodes are able to check that all of bitcoin's rules are being followed. Rules like following the inflation schedule, no double spending, no spending of coins that don't belong to the holder of the private key and all the other rules required to make bitcoin work (e.g. difficulty)
Full nodes are what make bitcoin trustless. No longer do you have to trust a financial institution like a bank or paypal, you can simply run software on your own computer. To put simply, the only node that matters is the one you use
Myth: There is no incentive to run nodes, the network relies on altruism
It is very much in the individual bitcoin's users rational self interest to run a full node and use it as their wallet.
Using a full node as your wallet is the only way to know for sure that none of bitcoin's rules have been broken. Rules like no coins were spent not belonging to the owner, that no coins were spent twice, that no inflation happens outside of the schedule and that all the rules needed to make the system work are followed (e.g. difficulty.) All other kinds of wallet involve trusting a third party server.
All these checks done by full nodes also increase the security. There are many attacks possible against lightweight wallets that do not affect full node wallets.
This is not just mindless paranoia, there have been real world examples where full node users were unaffected by turmoil in the rest of the bitcoin ecosystem. The 4th July 2015 accidental chain fork effected many kinds of wallets. Here is the wiki page on this event https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/July_2015_chain_forks#Wallet_Advice
Notice how updated node software was completely unaffected by the fork. All other wallets required either extra confirmations or checking that the third-party institution was running the correct version.
Full nodes wallets are also currently the most private way to use Bitcoin, with nobody else learning which bitcoin addresses belong to you. All other lightweight wallets leak information about which addresses are yours because they must query third-party servers. The Electrum servers will know which addresses belong to you and can link them together. Despite bloom filtering, lightweight wallets based on BitcoinJ do not provide much privacy against nodes who connected directly to the wallet or wiretappers.
For many use cases, such privacy may not be required. But an important reason to run a full node and use it as a wallet is to get the full privacy benefits.
Myth: I can just set up a node on a cloud server instance and leave it
To get the benefits of running a full node, you must use it as your wallet, preferably on hardware you control.
Most people who do this do not use a full node as their wallet. Unfortunately because Bitcoin has a similar name to Bittorrent, some people believe that upload capacity is the most important thing for a healthy network. As I've explained above: bandwidth and connections are not a problem today, trust, security and privacy are.
Myth: Running a full node is not recommended, most people should use a lightweight client
This was common advice in 2012, but since then the full node software has vastly improved in terms of user experience.
If you cannot spare the disk space to store the blockchain, you can enable pruning. In Bitcoin Core 0.12, pruning being enabled will leave the wallet enabled. Altogether this should require less than 900MB of hard disk space.
If you cannot spare the bandwidth to upload blocks to other nodes, there are number of options to reduce or eliminate the bandwidth requirement. These include limiting connections, bandwidth targetting and disabling listening. Bitcoin Core 0.12 has the new option -blocksonly, where the node will not download unconfirmed transaction and only download new blocks. This more than halves the bandwidth usage at the expense of not seeing unconfirmed transactions.
Synchronizing the blockchain for a new node has improved since 2012 too. Features like headers-first and libsecp256k1 have greatly improved the initial synchronization time.
It can be further improved by setting -dbcache=3000 which keeps more of the UTXO set in memory. It reduces the amount of time reading from disk and therefore speeds up synchronization. Tests showed that the entire blockchain can now be synchronized in less than 3 and a half hours (Note that you'll need Bitcoin Core 0.12 or later to get all these efficiency improvements) Another example with 2h 25m
How to run a full node as your wallet.
I think every moderate user of bitcoin would benefit by running a full node and using it as their wallet. There are several ways to do this.
So what are you waiting for? The benefits are many, the downsides are not that bad. The more people do this, the more robust and healthy the bitcoin ecosystem is.

BIG PROBLEM WITH ELECTRUM WALLET(S)

Hi,
I am a bitcoin holder since 2014. normally I only used this for football betting but since 2017 i hold my coins because of the price increase.
since yesterday electrum no longer opens my wallet files (i have 2). I always get this error: Cannot load wallet: Cannot read wallet file.
If there is any specialist here I would be glad about help. You can also reach me via mail: [email protected]
I use Electrum version 2.8.3. Windows 7 64bit.

Could Bitcoin be the catalyst that finally makes the typical computer user take security seriously? (Also, how to build a secure offline computer)

With all the inevitable posts from new users jumping head first into this 'magic internet currency' from malware infected systems using weak and/or duplicate passwords and no proper backups who then go on to mysteriously lose all their shiny new Bitcoin, it made me realize that money is a powerful motivator. Depending on how much is lost it will probably only take one or two instances of losing money before most people start to understand what we tech guys have been trying to tell you this entire time.
While we're on the subject, I will repost for you a comment I made to the security guide (permalink here) detailing my procedure for building a secured offline system for anyone wishing to protect large (and small) amounts of Bitcoin.
  1. Take an old computer and first epoxy the ethernet port so it is not able to go online. Remove or disconnect any WiFi and/or Bluetooth cards, and any other networking components. Disconnect and/or disable any microphones and speakers.
  2. Install Windows completely formatting the drive in the process. Many users here will tell you to avoid Windows and use Linux but since this computer is completely offline it does not much matter. Use your preferred OS. I additionally uninstalled and/or disabled certain services critical for networking but otherwise unneeded for normal operation. It is also good to disable any other unnecessary services. Be sure to disable autoplay. Set the BIOS to not automatically boot from CD or USB. You can set up BIOS security as well but if you do, be sure document the passwords.
  3. Install TrueCrypt and fully encrypt the system drive. All software installers and other files will need to be transferred via a thumb drive. Use an extremely strong password that you do not use elsewhere. MEMORIZE THIS PASSWORD AND WRITE IT DOWN TEMPORARILY ON A PIECE OF PAPER!!! NEVER ENTER THIS PASSWORD INTO ANY OTHER COMPUTER OR DEVICE. Let the encryption process complete 100% before proceeding. Reboot the system and test to ensure you are able to decrypt the drive and log in to the operating system.
  4. Install Armory, KeePass, Foxit PDF, CutePDF writer, and Eraser. You may wish to install Electrum as well. You will need a printer so it may be necessary to load a driver for it as well. If possible, use a printer without network capabilities or persistent memory.
  5. Create a KeePass file. I always secure KeePass with a key file in addition to a password. Do not use the same password for the KeePass file as you used to encrypt your drive. This password should also be memorized. DO NOT ENTER YOUR TRUECRYPT PASSWORD INTO THE KEEPASS FILE! You can however enter your windows and bios passwords if you like. I also configure KeePass to generate random 30+ character passwords using upper, lower, and numeric.
  6. I generate my wallets in Armory. Since this computer is offline Armory does not require a great deal of resources and will not download the blockchain. Note that you will not be able to check balances from this system. I secure each wallet with a separate KeePass generated password and document these in the KeePass file. I then generate watching only wallets that I store to a folder on the offline computer and also attach them to the associated KeePass entry for ease of access. DO NOT ATTACH YOUR ACTUAL WALLET, OR ANY DIGITAL OR PAPER BACKUPS TO KEEPASS! I also create a paper backup and save this on the offline computer using CutePDF Writer as well as a digital backup of the wallet file. Since Armory creates deterministic wallets, these are the only backups you will ever need. Print the paper backups and place them into a tamper evident envelope. Keep this in a secured location such as a safe deposit box. NOTE: This can also be done using Electrum but Armory has a much better interface and multi-wallet support. The online version of Armory however does require a robust computer and a full download of the blockchain. I will use Electrum only if I expect that the specific wallet I am generating will be the only wallet monitored on an online system with limited resources.
  7. Create a text file on the offline computer documenting the TrueCrypt password and key files, KeePass password and key files, the operating system and BIOS passwords, as well as instructions on how to access the offline computer, TrueCrypt file, KeePass file, paper wallets, key files, and any other critical information they may need. Print this out, place it in a temper evident envelope, and keep it in a second secured location available to whomever might need access to it in case of death or an emergency. Be sure you and they have access to unencrypted copies of your key files. You can now destroy the paper on which you originally wrote your TrueCrypt password.
  8. Create a TrueCrypt file on the offline computer. For simplicity you can use the same encryption password as you did for the HDD earlier but you may also wish to add a key file. Place copies of the KeePass file, digital backups, watch only backups, and anything else you may ever need should the offline computer fail. Optionally, you can also add the paper backups and written instructions (read paragraph in italics for considerations). You can now copy the TrueCrypt file to a thumb drive and from there various other locations from where it may be reliably accessed.
You may wish to choose not to store copies of the paper backups in the TrueCrypt file. The paper backups are enough in themselves to fully restore your wallets and spend funds, therefore, if somebody does manage to open your TrueCrypt file, they would have total control over your Bitcoin. By not storing the paper backups in the TrueCrypt file, you ensure someone would need access to both the digital backups (stored in the TrueCrypt file) and the passwords (stored in KeePass) to move funds. The same holds true for the offline computer. If you do choose not to save the paper backups (or delete them using Eraser), even if somebody manages to decrypt your drive they will still need to open KeePass to spend your Bitcoin. For this to be effective however, you must be sure not to copy the instructions file you created earlier into the TrueCrypt file, or in the case of the offline computer, you should use Eraser to delete it, because it contains your KeePass password. The main disadvantage to not including these files would be if, unbeknownst to you, one of your digital wallet files were corrupt. If this were the case and for some reason you cannot access the paper backup you could lose your coins.
You can test the integrity of an offline wallet without compromising security by signing a message from the offline computer using the private key then, from another computer, validating the signature against the public key.
IMPORTANT: IF FOR ANY REASON THE TRUECRYPT FILE IS EVER DECRYPTED FROM A SYSTEM OTHER THAN ANOTHER OFFLINE COMPUTER OVER WHICH YOU HAVE COMPLETE CONTROL, ALL YOUR WALLETS AND ENCRYPTION KEYS SHOULD BE CONSIDERED COMPROMISED. IF THIS OCCURS, I ADVISE YOU TO REPEAT THIS ENTIRE PROCESS USING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PASSWORDS AND TRANSFER ALL BITCOIN TO THE NEW WALLETS!!!
Even though the KeePass file does contain all of your wallet passwords, since it holds neither any wallet backups nor your TrueCrypt password, even if an attacker gains access to this file your Bitcoin will be secure. Still, if you suspect the KeePass file to have been compromised you should again at the very least create new wallets using different passwords and move your coins (and don't forget to back them up again!)
That is it. You can now set up a fully operational copy of Armory (or Electrum) on an online system and import your watching only wallets as well as your KeePass file. These can be copied unencrypted from the offline computer to a live system via a thumb drive. (Just be sure that you are not also copying your actual wallets, digital or paper backups, or instructions file.) This way you can track balances and receive Bitcoin. If you ever need to spend any Bitcoin, you can create the transaction from your online computer and sign it with the offline computer using a thumb drive (Armory makes this very easy). For added convenience, you can import a full digital backup of one or more of your wallets to hold smaller amounts of Bitcoin on your live system so you don't have to sign minor transactions offline. Just remember that whichever wallets you do bring online should never again be considered as secure as those kept completely offline.

Recovering unencrypted wallet from 2013

EDIT: I've been able to export my details from Bitcoin Core into a format I recognise, with addresses marked with dates corresponding to the last time I was doing transactions. Now to see which ones have any money in them!
Hi all,
So after seeing the price of Bitcoin I immediately thought back to my wallets. I backed them up years ago. But they will not import into any modern wallet software (some just hard crash.) The software I last used with these wallets was Bitcoin QT.
I was able to extract a .json file from this backed up wallet.dat using pywallet, but I have no idea what to do with the resulting data. I read about Electrum having a "Sweep private keys" function, and about using Bitcoin QT to dump private key information. But since no receive addresses are showing up in these old versions, I have no idea what to dump. I tried my best at importing the private keys from this data after matching one private key to some Bitcoin QT output, and put all my private keys into the sweep. However, it says nothing was found and my balance remains at nothing.
I cannot find what my old BTC address was, so I'm unable to check if the funds are still there in the wallet.
Is anyone able to give me some steps on how to get this loaded into a modern wallet? Nothing I've tried so far works.

A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating an Anonymous Wallet for Covert Practices

A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating an Anonymous Wallet for Covert Practices
With the recent Bitcoin “bubble” fiasco and the subsequent rise and fall of Bitcoin value, it seems that this subreddit has become obsessed with making money. But get-rich-quick schemes are not at the heart of Bitcoin. Instead BTC should be seen as a way to keep Big Governments and Big Businesses from knowing how much money you have and what you choose to spend that money on. As a currency, it doesn't matter how much the value fluctuates if you plan on spending your wealth on sites like the Silk Road and etc.
(OK, maybe it does matter a little bit if the money you spent yesterday is worth twice as much today; but this guide is for spenders, not hoarders. Or at least for hoarders who also like to spend.)
Let's discuss my favorite attribute of the Bitcoin protocol: anonymity.
Many noobs getting into the Bitcoin game fail to realize that anonymity is an important key to understanding the importance of Bitcoin. In places where your wealth can easily be taking away from you (see Cyprus, Russia, China, the USA and others), Bitcoin can function like a store of cash buried in a dessert in the middle of nowhere – buried so deep that nobody can find it, not even the most powerful men and women on Earth.
POINT: If you are purchasing your Bitcoins through services like Coinbase or Mt. Gox, and if you've ever given your real name and bank account information to a Bitcoin Exchange, then you are NOT anonymous. Your Bitcoins can be traced back to you. Your purchases are recorded in the blockchain, and although it's difficult, it's certainly not impossible for those with the knowhow to find you and prosecute you. See this link before continuing.
Bitcoin is not inherently anonymous. You must take steps to protect yourself in order to keep your identity a secret. And even still, if you don't know what you are doing, you run the risk of being caught. So if you care about hiding yourself and your money, I offer this guide as a way to accomplish secret purchases and covert trades. Of course I cannot guarantee you won't end up in jail. At the end of the day, nobody knows how closely governments are tracking BTC purchases over the TOR network. Some people even believe that the TOR network was created by nefarious forces. I doubt it, but you never really know.
STEP ONE: Anonymous Hardware
Because you cannot really know whether or not you are being watched, your first step in creating an anonymous wallet is to protect yourself by buying a cheap laptop computer and removing the hard-drive. Really, who needs a hard-drive anyway? Toss it in the garbage.
STEP TWO: Anonymous Software
If you don't know how to download a Linux LiveCD, then stop reading now. You are probably not skilled enough to protect yourself anyway. If you don't know how to download a Linux LiveCD, then proceed with extreme caution; downloading an ISO file and burning it to a DVD is pretty damned easy. Easier than anonymity. Those who refuse to learn are at risk.
It's arguable which software you should use, but I recommend connecting to the TOR network using TAILS, a live DVD or live USB that aims at preserving your privacy and anonymity. TAILS helps you to use the Internet anonymously, leave no trace on the computer you're using, and to use state-of-the-art cryptographic tools to encrypt your files, email and instant messaging.
ProTip: For an extra layer of protection, download the ISO from your local library's computer. Or while you're sipping a mocha at Starbuck's. Then burn it to a DVD and take it home. Place it in your crap computer (the one without a hard-drive) and turn it on. Enter the BIOS menu and boot from CD if your computer doesn't do it automatically.
DO NOT CONNECT TO THE NETWORK FROM YOUR HOME.
I repeat, for an extra layer of security, DO NOT CONNECT TO YOUR HOME WIFI USING TAILS IF YOU WANT TO DO SHADY THINGS. That's just common sense. TAILS itself isn't illegal. But if you're the type to do shady things, you don't want to practice on your home Wifi, which you probably pay for with a bank account or credit card.
After you've spent a day or two using TAILS and familiarizing yourself with the LinuxOS, and once you feel comfortable enough to continue, then head back to your local Starbucks, boot up the LiveCD, and connect. Browse the TOR network and triple-check that you are protected. You can do this by checking your IP address for DNS LEAKS. Only if you feel comfortably hidden from prying eyes will you want to continue.
STEP THREE: Creating an Anonymous Wallet
There are several different ways to to this, but the easiest way is to use the code at bitadress.org. Thanks to SpenserHanson for creating this thread which describes the process in detail:
  1. Save bitaddress.org.html to your computer
  2. Close browser.
  3. Disable computer Wi-Fi.
  4. Open bitaddress.org.html in browser.
  5. Generate an address and record the private keys.
  6. Close the browser window.
  7. Go home. Think about what you are about to do.
STEP FOUR: Funding the Anonymous Wallet
Funding your wallet will be the most difficult part of this process. Obviously you don't want to go to a site like Coinbase or Mt. Gox and link up you bank account, then start sending coins to your anonymous address. That would be stupid. Very stupid.
Probably the best way to get coins is to know someone who is willing to send you a few, but even then you lead a trail back to your friend.
My suggestion is to make cash deposits through ZipZap or Bitinstant, and give them false information (for example, use the new email you created, over the TOR network, from a site like Hotmail or Yahoo, which doesn't require a phone number to sign up – I'm looking at you Gmail. Make sure your new account forwards your email to yet another account, perhaps Tormail or a temp address. You probably won't need to use the email more than once anyway, for confirmation, if you need it. And you might want to create a new address with every deposit, just to be safe). There are other options of course. Some companies will sell you Bitcoins anonymously through Bank of America cash deposits. But remember that the moment you walk into a Big Bank and give them money, you are caught on camera. Maybe offer a homeless man some money to make the deposit for you. And hope he doesn't just pocket your money. Regardless, you want to stay away from Big Banks if you can. It really isn't that hard.
If you absolutely must make deposits from your bank account, you could send your coins to an anonymous online wallet first and then to cold storage, but make sure to use several mixing services over a period of several days. And then have trouble sleeping at night.
Another great idea is to use the localbitcoins website; meet with a seller locally; pay cash and GTFO.
STEP FOUR: Spending from the Anonymous Wallet
If you are looking to CASH OUT, there aren't many anonymous options besides meeting with somebody and selling face to face. You could always sign up for your own account at localbitcoins, then hope a buyer contacts you. But this guide isn't about making money, it's about spending your coins.
To buy things, you'll want to go to back to the library, connect through TAILS, download a lite client like Electrum and access your account. Every time you want to spend, you will have to re-download, but it should not take more than a few minutes. And though you are probably safe enough to spend directly from the client, if you really want to be safe you should send the funds to a second wallet though a mixing service, then to a third or fourth or fifth wallet, also through mixing services. These “Mixing Wallets” should NOT be created using the TOR network because the TOR exit node may be monitored. I've never had a problem myself, but it's theoretically possible that an attacker could record the password/private keys for the hosted wallet and steal your coins. Which is why you should NEVER USE THE SAME ACCOUNT TWICE. And never access your cold storage wallet through the net. That would be very very bad.
To created the mixing wallets you will also need a way to hide your identify without using TOR. The best way to do this is to sign up for a VPN service though a public WiFi hotspot and then pay in Bitcoin. The best service I have found is called Private Internet Access. You can access their service through a public computer, connect to the VPN, and voila, you now can safely create mixing wallets without exposing your password to the open network. Make sure that after you mix the coins you send them all to a safe, final address, which will be your Spending Wallet.
Remaining anonymous will cost your some time and money. With each transaction you're going to have to pay for mixing, and also the transaction fee. And setting up a new email and a new account with every transaction (so that you can spread the coins across multiple fake accounts) will be bothersome but worth it in the long run. You can't put a price on piece of mind when it comes to your safety.
REMEMBER Your Spending Wallet should not contain all of your funds. The bulk of your coins should be address you created using bitaddress. Never trust an online service to hold the bulk of your funds. The recent hacks have shown that the best place to store your private key is in your head.
Final Notes:
The Bitcoin protocol itself is not anonymous. And theoretically it's possible to trace every transaction back to you. This is why you need to use fake emails, many multiple addresses, and a VPN service with heavy encryption. Even with the knowledge and the technology to map the blockchain, the FEDS will have a hell of a time tracking multiple address though VPN tunneling back to a cold storage wallet that you created offline and only use to send coins over TOR. There are just too many roadblocks. Of course nothing is impossible. But I sleep very good at night knowing that my door is not going to be kicked in by the Men in Black. And even if you're not doing anything illegal, this sort of behavior is certainly suspicious.
If you were lucky enough to receive a tip from Reddit's own bitcoinbillionaire (I myself was not) and you haven't cashed out. Create a VPN-tunneled throwaway account and tip yourself before claiming your coins. Then send them through a mixing service and to your cold storage address. Now you're on your way to being an anonymous spender.
I hope this guide helps. I really do. The purpose of Bitcoin isn't to make money. It's to protect the money that you already have, and to protect your identity in places where your identity is compromised. Everybody in the world wants your money, especially the richest of the rich. You ought to do everything you can to keep yourself safe. Especially if you live in a compromised geography.
TL;DR: Go directly to jail. Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200.

Transaction (multisig?) problem, and sweep shows no inputs

My Apologies if this topic has been covered exactly. I can only take in so much when reading through, and came to a stop - please link to any thread that may help.
I’ve become stuck with Btc in my electrum wallet on Linux Ubuntu.
a. The wallet I have used previous to both send and receive from.
‘Originally’ I set it up for .multisig with another wallet I have on my Mac. I did some test transactions each way, From Ubuntu to Mac I needed to enter in a Master Public Key at some stage to send from the Linux wallet.
The next time I sent from the wallet I didn’t need to for some reason, but it worked.
b. Months later now, I’ve been trying to send from it again, and it produces a Transaction box, the top line reading Transaction ID , Status: Partially signed (3/6), and lists the 3 inputs that make up the sum in my wallet address I am trying to send. In Output, it shows the receiving address listed in my Mac wallet I am trying to send to.
It did not ask for the Master Public Key fo the co-sign wallet.
I can only copy or save this ‘transaction,’ or close it.
c. I have tried to save it and Load the transaction file in my Mac wallet. The same transaction box shows up, and again the status is partially signed (3/6). However, the options to sign or broadcast it, are not available (not highlighted and active), only copy, save and close again.
How can I complete the transaction, and sign/broadcast it? I cannot get my Bitcoin out of the wallet. I have the words seed, and private key. I tried to open another (newer version) of Electrum on Ubtuntu, and ‘restore a wallet or import keys’ but the the result was a message saying there was No Input found.
My old wallet shows a green symbol in the bottom right hand corner, funds were last received back in July, and clearly show a positive Balance.
Your help is most appreciated!

Electrum 2.0 has been tagged | Thomas Voegtlin | Mar 01 2015

Thomas Voegtlin on Mar 01 2015:
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1
Dear Bitcoin devs,
I just tagged version 2.0 of Electrum:
https://github.com/spesmilo/electrum/tree/2.0
The electrum.org website will be updated later today. The release
notes are a bit dense, due to the large amount of changes and new
features in this release. In the coming weeks we will be adding more
detailed documentation to the wiki and to the website.
There has been a very long hiatus in Electrum releases, because it
took me a lot of time to decide about the new seed derivation method
and wallet structure. Now that this part is done, I hope that we will
resume to a faster release pace.
I would like to thank all the people who contributed to this release,
developers, beta testers, but also people from this list who provided
useful feedback.
Cheers,
Thomas

Just preordered a Trezor: A couple of questions

Hi,
I just preodered the new Trezor Model T (my first Trezor ever) and also spent the last two evenings reading trezor.io and reddit and I still have a few questions.
1a) Is there a wallet file containing labels and transaction history stored somewhere? The seed can only be able to recover my private keys (+ transactions) but not my labels and so on, so my wallet can't be created from my seed from scratch every time I start using my Trezor.
1b) I understand that you can create multiple wallets using keyphrases. So the Trezor basically creates all the accounts and adresses based on the "Seed+Keyphrase". Again: Where is all the info stored because I think it cannot be stored it on your Trezor.
2) A recovery also recoveres the same account and address structure I used before?
3) Can I use Electrum and wallet.trezor.io at the same time (switch between them). Send a Transaction in Electrum and it also shows up in wallet.trezor.io?
4) Is Electrum Cash supported as a Bitcoin Cash desktop client by Trezor (I can't find it on their website)
Thanks in advance for your answers.
