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:
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, verify1 and install Gpg4win
  2. Download, verify2, install, and launch Tor Browser
  3. Download, verify3, 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 && tor.exe --service start
  9. Record the hostname: type .\HiddenService\hostname as
  10. Add the bitcoin.conf options suggested below
  11. Restart the bitcoin-qt program
  12. (Optional) Activate the bitnodes crawler at https://bitnodes.io/nodes/-8333/
It may take a while for your node to show up on bitnodes. I've found the check button sometimes has trouble with onions. Of course you don't need to do it, but it can provide a simple way to check status once your on the list.

torrc file: (replace c:\windows with the proper path as needed)

```

Change to C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming

Log notice file \tor\service.log

Bridges may be needed if the Gov't shuts down Tor exit nodes. Get Bridges by

emailing [email protected] from Gmail (only) and uncomment as follows:

Bridge obfs4 : cert= iat-mode=

HiddenServiceDir \tor\HiddenService HiddenServiceVersion 2 HiddenServicePort 8333 127.0.0.1:8333 HiddenServicePort 18333 127.0.0.1:18333 ```

bitcoin.conf file: (entries to be ADDED)

```

Change to what you recorded earlier

onion=127.0.0.1:9050 listen=1 externalip= discover=1 ```

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?

Windows
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! – 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).

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.

EOT - Encryption of things

 **EOT - Encryption of things** 
There is a huge surge in devices attached to the internet, known as the Internet of Things, and it is estimated that over 80 Billion devices will be connected to the internet by 2025, from industrial machines to devices in our home. The constant hacking and cyber attacks have increased not only the demand but the necessity of secure solutions. Our privacy and digital footprint are at risk.
[b]Some examples where encryption plays a role:
[b]Secure messaging - To make messages truly secure we need a process whereby a cryptography can be applied to encrypt transaction.
[b]Secure calling - Secure calling is a process whereby the caller and the recipient of the call are identified and linked via a blockchain enabled cryptocurrency transfer, again creating public and private encryption keys making the call truly private.
[b]Secure media storage - To safely and securely store media a process is required where 1.) Access to the media is encrypted via public and private keys of the person wanting to store the media. 2.) The media itself needs to be encrypted with a set of encryption keys and 3.) Media storage costs need to be paid via cryptocurrency
[b]Secure browsing - To browse the internet securely we need to create a process of verification whereby nodes on the blockchain can verify websites as “safe”. Furthermore, the entire process needs to be encrypted as well.
[b]Verification - This is one of the most important uses of a blockchain, we can verify websites as in the example above but also various other things such as identity, title and ownership, date stamps and source of products as with the verification of the source of agricultural or other products. These are just a few examples. All of this data needs to be encrypted as well.
[b]“Smart home” security - Wi-Fi is often used for remote monitoring and control. Home devices, when remotely monitored and controlled via the Internet, are an important constituent of the Internet of Things - all needing encryption, otherwise, hackers paradise.
[b]EOT in the future - The examples we mentioned above are only “scratching the surface” of where these technologies are applicable and who knows what will be invented in future. Google, Apple and Uber are all testing cars that drive themselves. A major issue with this technology is again the security aspect and the need to protect against hacking and who want’s to get into a spaceship to Mars that might be hacked or hijacked by ransomware?
So the future for the [b]“Encryption of Things” – EOT, looks very interesting indeed and the role of crypto currencies in this will be major.
Read the full white paper here - http://eottoken.com/index.php/whitepape

Some Helpful Information
[quote author=Story777 link=topic=2091616.msg21890405#msg21890405 date=1505551168]
You have been keeping a great secret.
I've been doing a bit of research with the technology behind this coin. It looks like ALOT of research has gone into this tech, since about 2004 and shortly after a patent for this P2P system was quickly issued.
Bitvault (https://swissbankinyourpocket.com/product/bitvault/) who are using the worlds first blockchain phone as a secure communication device and ultimately taking [font=Verdana][b]encryption[/b][/font] to the Internet Of Things (IoT) keeping our personal and business data secure. All this is done using [b]EOT coin [/b](Encryption of Things).
In todays world insecure devices are rampant. Here are a couple of links about the CIA being able to use insecure devices to 'cause accidents' http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/cyber-life/sd-me-wikileaks-cia-20170307-story.html and https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/innovations/wp/2017/03/08/what-we-know-about-car-hacking-the-cia-and-those-wikileaks-claims/
It's scary to think a legal entity could posses such power over life. Just the mere fact alone the governing authority can request phone records (e.g. txt msgs, voice msgs or eavesdropping) proves most if not all telecommunication companies do not encrypt, otherwise whats the point on requesting the information!? (legal or not).
Commercially sensitive information needs to be protected and most importantly in my opinion our [font=Verdana][b]rights[/b][/font] and the privacy of all citizens of the human race need to be protected.
From my understanding BitVault is a platform for reference data. This would be data that is stored for compliance reasons such as e-mails, invoicing systems and check imaging (e.g. high quality imaging for x-rays, MRI scans etc) and a prototype was developed in 2004. This would means massive amount of data storage is required with fail-safe systems so a authorised user could access this information very very quickly.
Three goals were needed to be achieved: Low cost, high reliability/availability and simplicity. This is the birth of Bitvault via EOT.
Bitvault ultimately stores immutable objects with each new version being updated and identified with a 160-bit key.
System stability is very important and must be immune to failure sequences. Parallel repair via indexing is one of the many strengths Bitvault has been able to demonstrate.
BitVault is a back-end system that uses [u][b]Applications[/b][/u] to catalog object ID's. Using a catalog utility and indexing within an application prevented scalability bottlenecking under heavy loads.
Fast forward 3 years to 2007 a very important decision was to [u][b]decentralise[/b][/u] BitVaults system. This in my opinion is one of the fundamental principles of cryptocurrency - [u][b]No one entity or person has any control of the data stored and only the authorised user can access this info[/b][/u]. Ultimate Security and thus personal safety (see above articles CIA hacks). BitVault using applications have been able to use provable communication and data storage with ease of retrieval with vital security measures.
BitVault is not alone in researching solutions for security for the IoT, such as Venti and the like are making progress, however, BitVault is 'head and shoulders' above the few competitors and are already offering practical working solutions on the market with huge scalability that is cost effective.
Well Done BitVault, well done EOT your secret is out and let the world embrace.
author=Story777 link=topic=2091616.msg21462424#msg21462424 date=1504428317]
I have had a response in Slack and it has satisfied my questions. Thank-you.
For everyone information here it is:
The currency was created with 200 Million EOT total supply on 7 July 2017 [ we showed it to the community a London Fintech week with the demonstration of the BitVault - fintechweek.com ]
100 Million was pre-mined and another 100 Million are currently being mined, 1 block every 90 seconds @ 100 coins per block.
So the pre-mined coins were listed on waves as a token so that it can create a market for the coins while we are working to get listed on other exchanges.
The 100 Million coins listed were distributed in several ways. Firstly, this was not an ICO because our business is already funded via private capital. We wanted to get the currency distributed a widely as possible. So most of the initial coins were given away to a number of interested parties. We distributed this to our whole development team, business partners, employees as well as to the waves and other communities. So we did not sell all these coins for the current price, most of it was given away for free to people that have an interest in our products and business. The price now is formed by whoever owns these coins.
The tokens on the exchange is really a representation of the currency and as such has value because it can be interchanged, just like Bitcoin and Ethereum are on the waves exchange. This whole process is explained on page 4 of the waves whitepaper, I think they call it an asset-to-asset exchange which makes it possible to list any asset that exist on waves. Unfortunately waves only has gateways currently for Bitcoin, Ethereum, Waves, Euro and USD, so we have to develop our own gateway, which will be available on Nov 1.
So to clarify 100,000,000 tokens costing $190M were not sold. It is a combination of airdrops, private sales and sales on the exchange.
Some EOT coins are needed because: "A lot of EOT will be distributed through our devices. For example our encrypted routers are pre-loaded with EOT, so we need that stock and it will be distributed that way".
And with the response to tokens on the Waves Exchange "This is how Bitcoin works on waves: - They created 21 Million BTC Tokens.. When you deposit Bitcoin into waves account, you receive an equal amount of tokens which you can either trade or even sent via the waves blockchain to another user.. Once you withdraw your tokens are exchanged for BTC and you receive it back into your BTC wallet.. Exactly the same for USD or EUR - You don't send Euro's to another client on waves if you transfer - you send a token that represents EUR -- This works exactly the w0083".
These are the answers I was looking for and make a lot of sense now. This is indeed an exciting project. :)
It's time to trade....
Now I have one question left....
Is there anyone using NiceHash to mine this coin?? I keep being disconnected because of the difficulty being too low. Can any one help?
[quote author=Shews link=topic=2091616.msg22876983#msg22876983 date=1507755312] EOT (coin) is now tradable on the CryptoBridge Decentralised Exchange, you can sign up below.
Please note this is for the EOT COIN ONLY, do not send tokens to this dex. This is a secure means to trade with the backend being on a blockchain. It is still in beta stage but has been working flawlessly so far. If you'd like more info I will post their website link is below.
https://wallet.crypto-bridge.org/?r=388691
You can sign up with a local wallet mode, meaning you are the only one with access to your keys, this is most secure. There is also the option to sign up with and account if you require access to you funds on the go.

[Guide] No hardware to mine? How to net 6,000+Ð/day using Windows Azure

Inspired by lleti 's free guide for using Amazon Web Services. However, from what I understand due to rental costs, it is more efficient to buy doge directly than use AWS. This guide is based on utilizing the $200 credit that comes with the Windows Azure cloud computing free trial, so you will not pay anything.
This is targeted at shibes with poor hardware that can only mine 50-200 doge per day, but it will work for everyone.
Disclaimer: Doge rate is an estimate based on current difficulties and market. Windows Azure trial may be US only (?)
Overview / How it works
You will not be mining doge directly with this method. Mining doge effeciently requires a GPU, which aren't found in traditional servers. Instead, we will be using the powerful CPUs provided with Windows Azure servers to mine a CPU based crypto-currency, such as QuarkCoin or SecureCoin, and convert those to doge.
Steps
1) Install your QRK or SRC wallet
Ideally if you are reading this, you have installed a dogecoin-qt wallet for yourself before. We will need to do the same for either QuarkCoin or SecureCoin. This is the wallet where will will send the coins you mine with your Windows Azure servers.
These are not the only CPU coin options, but QRK and SRC are very similar (same hash function) and simple to mine.
Once you have installed the wallet, it should look very similar to your DogeCoin wallet. If you have trouble downloading the blockchain ('out of sync'), look at these threads respectively to see which nodes you need to add to your config file. Config files are located at C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\CoinName.conf on Windows.
2) Set up a mining pool account
If you have joined a mining pool for DogeCoin, it will be a very similar experience for other alt coins. See the following bitcointalk threads which have a list of mining pools:
If you would like a pool recommendation, I can recommend src.coinmine.pl and qrk.coinmine.pl; this is from personal experience, I am not affiliated with them.
Once you are logged in you should also create 3 workers, as we will be setting up 3 servers, one for each server. So you should have 3 worker names, and a password set up for each worker.
3) Sign up for Windows Azure free trial
Link: www.windowsazure.com/en-us/pricing/free-trial/
You will have to provide a valid credit card and verify your account with a cell phone so they know you are a real person. This is a Microsoft product so they are reputable. Once you sign up, you will receive a $200 to use in 30 days. Remember to cancel when your credits are running out so they don't charge you.
4) Create Windows Server instances
I would recommend you watch this video which walks you through the UI of the Windows Azure management site to set up the virtual machines we need. Essentially we are going to do the following:
Thus we have a total of 20 CPU cores to mine QRK / SRC with. We want the the most CPU power we can get without excessively burning our $200 credit. That's why 2008 R2 is used, and only 3 instances of it.
5) Remotely connect to servers and download miner
This section is also covered in the video from section 4, watch it for a visual walkthrough.
Once the servers have been initialized on Microsoft's end, we should be able to access them under 'Virtual Machines' at www.manage.windowsazure.com. You should see each host name and a status, and when selected there should be an additional 'Connect' button - click it.
You should now be prompted to download a .rdp file. Download this for each of your 3 virtual machines to a folder you will remember. You will open this .rdp file and use the login credentials you previously specified to connect to each server.
Once you are remotely connected, you should see the desktop. Open up the first icon on the taskbar that looks like a server, this is your server manager. We need to open up the 'Configure IE ESC' setting that's visible on this pane. Make sure 'Off' is selected for both admins and users on the IE ESC configuration.
Now, open up the IE browser and navigate to https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B9cvOfoOekSdVzZZcThLZHg4bjA/edit. Press Ctrl + S to download the entire zip to the desktop, and un-zip it.
6) Configure and start miner
Again, this is pretty much covered in the video from section 4, if you prefer watching.
You should now have a folder on your server's desktop named quark-v2_w64. This is the miner for both QRK and SRC. We are going to be using minerd64_sse4.exe. Create a shortcut to minerd64_sse4.exe within the same folder. We now need to add the parameters for your miner.
Right click on your minerd64_sse4.exe shortcut -> Properties. Look at the target field, it should look like this:
C:\Users\UserName\Desktop\quark-v2_w64\minerd64_sse4.exe
We are going append the following format to this target field
-a quark -t 8 -o stratum+tcp://src.coinmine.pl:6020 -u user.worker -p password
-a: algorithm, both SRC and QRK use 'quark'
-t: number of cores (so either 8 or 4 for our purposes)
-o: mining pool information (url and port).
-u: account you have for your mining pool, then a period, then a worker name
-p: password that you created for the worker in step 2
So here is an example of what the target field of your shortcut should look like when you are done:
C:\Users\Nexic\Desktop\quark-v2_w64\minerd64_sse4.exe -a quark -t 8 -o stratum+tcp://src.coinmine.pl:6020 -u Nexic.worker1 -p pass1
7) Profit!!
If you set up your miners correctly on each Windows Server VM (I prefer to assign a separate worker to each one), you should be able to run them and see an output like this: http://i.imgur.com/3lECqSz.png. You can close your remote sessions without interrupting it.
How do you get the doge, you ask? Well, using the above setup I have earned 10 SecureCoins in the past 2 days. These are worth 0.00094 bitcoins (BTC) on Cryptsy at present. A doge is worth 0.0000007 BTC at present, so if I go from SRC -> BTC -> DOGE, I can turn 5 SRC to 6,642 DOGE on Cryptsy. There are also other exchanges, I won't go into how to exchange coins on this post. Remember, this is every day for about a week, for free!
Also, you can CPU mine on your own personal computers as well, not just the servers.
TL;DR
Mine QuarkCoin / SecureCoin using Windows Azure free trial, use Cryptsy (or other exchange) to convert to DOGE. Much more efficient than CPU mining Doge.

Terms & Conditions for GPUMiner Releases : Developers must release the mining software + source after brief testing to Renesis Group to claim their reward. The group will immediately upload the GPUMiner with sources on github after mining 2 test blocks and will provide proof to community. If GPUMiner software is released directly to the community then it would fair but there will be no reward for software developers.

Mining:

At the time of announcement, you can mine solo until pools become available. Download the CPUMiner binary or source from github with a wallet https://github.com/renesisgroup/cpuminer-release. Place the renesis.conf in your wallet data directory and (re) start wallet. Run start.bat file inside CPUMiner bin folder to mine Renesis. You can edit the start.bat file to edit the number of threads for mining. If you wish to mine on a pool then use the poolmine.bat file.
Note: Please be advised that the cpuminer.exe can show up as a virus on Windows just like almost all mining software. You can be assured it is not and is labelled as coin miner, CpuMiner (PUA) or malware. Refer to virustotal report here https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/1c90ca293dc016f0d8663f7bab55b5def8f484c21b3dac3dae6f81d0166cc99e/detection . You can safely verify your Claymore and EWBF CUDA miners at virustotal and they will give similar results. If you feel that it has a virus then please do not mine. Virustotal scan for Windows wallet is : https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/4cc5d6977566fc7e254744626d0783b1fc2d1aab15d72a5137c99ef0e91eee46/detection .For questions related to GPUMiner releases, please ask fellow miners or their respective developers when their releases become available for download.

The ultimate back-up plan: Your private key, stored in the block chain, encrypted

[edit: It is the ultimate back-up, but it doesn't mean it is the safest. I'm too tired to figure that out. I'm just explaining how to store a private key in the block chain, in case it is useful or can be made useful.]
I had that idea if someone is interested, though I guess people won't like it. It's a bit wild. We encrypt the key and put it in the block chain with a trick.
I'm not saying everyone should do this, but it could be useful to know it can be done.
If you trust encryption and your password more than back-ups or a third-party, then it could be nice. I'm no encryption expert but it should be strong enough.
"Instead of taking 1.3 quadrillion years, our magical cracking supercomputer would only need 328 trillion years." http://www.kotfu.net/2011/08/what-does-it-take-to-hack-aes/
If it's flawed or gets cracked after a billion years, I decline all responsibility. But you can be sneaky about it. I propose a sneaky trick at the end. It's a bit rough on the edges and crazy but I'll put it out there. If people like it, there are always ways to streamline.
Anyway, you can't memorize the key as you can memorize a password. It's true you can put it on paper; then lose the paper. You can encrypt it and keep it on hard drive, then lose the hard drive. Or on a service, and lose the service. The block chain though, is going to stay around as long as you need the key. So I suggest this whole alternative.
You can still put the information on paper if you want. But now, just your memory is enough. Just the password.
The drawback is the infinitesimal odd of someone finding out and spending a lot of years and resources on brute-forcing. I'm not sure what would be the odds of success. Just make it so decades of computing resource cost more than what's inside.
Now I'll explain how to do it from A to Z, for the few interested.
Plan: 0) Vanity 1) Get the key 2) Encrypt the key 3) Put the key in the block chain 4) Retrieval 5) Conclusion
0) Optional: Vanity I recommend a vanity address (choosing the first part of the address). So if worst comes to worst, you find it from memory in the block chain. And also, it's kinda neato. How-to: first, download VanityGen, direct/wiki. Extract it, then Open a console window at the location with shift-right click in the folder, if you have vista/7/8. Then type "vanitygen 1something" in it. It has to start with 1. If it's too long it'll take a lot of time. Ctrl-C to cancel if it's too long. Faster with GPU: oclvanitygen -D 0:0 1something (maybe broken atm) When you have the key, type "importprivkey mykey" in Help->Debug->Console of bitcoin-qt, to add it. Result of this optional step: A beautiful address which can be retrieved from memory if needed (after it has been seen in the block chain with a transaction)
1) Get the key - Download open source Pywallet: direct/profile - Extract pywallet.py somewhere. Shift-right click in the folder and "open a console window" - In the console, type: pywallet --dumpwallet dump.txt If your wallet is encrypted, then add --passphrase=PASSPHRASE Now you find the key in dump.txt. (note: it reads the wallet at C:\Users\x\Bitcoin) Result of this step: the private key; it looks like 51 characters starting with the number 5. (To delete dump.txt, you can use a software so it can't be recovered from HDD, like Recuva it seems)
2) Encrypt the key - Choose an algorithm. Personally, I pick AES-256. - Download a trustworthy program to encrypt text with the algorithm. Here are two with GUI I found. It's open source but I didn't check it, so it's not 100% safe: http://sourceforge.net/projects/textcrypt/ https://code.google.com/p/immediatecrypt/downloads/list They're both jar files. Maybe you can click them. Personally I have to go in the console; I'm so tired of that coffee cup. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe" -jar ImmediateCrypt.jar. It gave me an error though. Not the other. Maybe someone can suggest better. - Choose a good password. It's all about the password (and the software). AES is weak with weak password. And crazy strong with a good password. This is not like websites with protection against brute-force. People can brute-force fully if they find out. I like psycho-pass method which is about a pattern on the keyboard instead of semantics. Side Info: http://www.jmir.org/2012/1/e10/ http://www.jmir.org/2013/8/e161/ Or a passphrase if you want. Here is a nice table with password entropy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Password_strength#Random_passwords Below 64 bits of entropy, it's too unsafe, it's too weak. We need 128 bits or above, as far as I know. That is 25 random alphanumeric. If you're feeling paranoid, 256 bits. You can check entropy of password roughly here: http://rumkin.com/tools/password/passchk.php Remember it is not like websites. There is no "Forgot password?" button. Memorize it permanently; and maybe write it down in your favorite book just in case, I don't know. Result of this step: the encrypted key. It doesn't matter what it looks like as long as it takes you back to the key when you click "Decrypt". (on a different software, preferably)
3) Put the key in the block chain It works by sending some minimum amount to fake addresses, with data encoded in the addresses. Can't try this part because I don't have bitcoins. :[ Only a wallet! If some liked the guide particularly: 1thxd4KJLhBMcfCYaVKYMA8Atv3Dfx9hb :3 I'll follow the method of this great article: http://www.righto.com/2014/02/ascii-bernanke-wikileaks-photographs.html (the blog is remarkable!) - We're supposed to split the encrypted key in chunks of 20 characters. Then convert from ASCII to hex. Last chunk we fill with extra zeros. I wrote a little javascript to do it all automatically! If you don't like it, find a software, or do it manually. Not tested much but seems to work for my test. I'll say how to know if it worked. Copy that: encrypted='';har=(encrypted.split ('').map(function(c){return c.charCodeAt(0).toString(16); }));ek="";har.forEach(function(c){ek+=c;});while(ek.length%40!=0)ek+='0';iEK=0;ek2='';while(ek.length>0){ek2+=ek.substr(iEK,iEK+40) + "\n";if(ek.length>=40)ek=ek.substr(40,ek.length-40);else ek='';};ek2;
Check eventual comments to know if it's a hack/broken mess.
I don't do much Javascript, or much anything. Paste the whole thing in the javascript console. To open the console: Chrome, Ctrl-Shift-J. Firefox, Ctrl-Shift-K. IE9, F12. Put your encrypted key between the '' right at the beginning, then enter.
This should display rows of 40-characters chunks of the encrypted key in hex format (numbers, and a to f). I have 6 chunks but it depends on encryption. It should give twice as much characters as the input except for last zeros, and follow this conversion table from Char to Hx column. If it doesn't, call the police. Or use some Ascii to Hex service.
Now we take these chunks one by one and use https://blockchain.info/q/hashtoaddress/the_hex_chunk to convert to BTC addresses.
Send spare money to each one (the strict minimum is suspect and it'd get found easily) in the right order (wait for 1 or 2 confirmations each time to be sure).
And we're done! The information is safe and cozy, in the block chain. Not safe from brute-forcing, but safe from ourselves; and that's safer, isn't it?
4) Retrieval
Alright, how do we go back from the addresses to the encrypted key? I can't try it myself, but apparently, according to the article: 1) Get the transaction ID on blockchain.info, by going to the wallet's profile 2) Go to http://blockexplorer.com/rawtx/your_transaction_id 3) There will be something like that: "out":[ { "value":"25.08603421", "scriptPubKey":"OP_DUP OP_HASH160 27a1f12771de5cc3b73941664b2537c15316be43 OP_EQUALVERIFY OP_CHECKSIG" } ]
And you need to translate the "27a1f12771de5cc3b73941664b2537c15316be43" part from hex to Unicode. The result should be the chunk of encrypted key, written in hex again. You put all the parts together in order, remove extra zeros. Then use a program to go back from hex bytes to ASCII. Maybe someone can do it or I'll put the javascript one of these days if people are interested; I don't think they'll be. Usually I'm serious and extensive but you can't imagine how tired I am these days, of everything. Anyway, you put that ASCII in the AES program with your password, you click Decrypt.
Then you have your private key.
If you do this, don't lose other back-ups until you have successfully retrieved the key, to know it works.
5) Conclusion I understand that there's a small chance that someone figures the transactions are data, reassembles the parts, has massive luck and breaks the crazy strong encryption with supercomputers and botnets in less than decades, or aliens hack your bitcoins with quantum computers, ect... But I don't know, that seems very unlikely to me; more unlikely than losing personal back-ups or third-parties being untrustworthy.
More importantly, it gives peace of mind of not having to manage back-up stuff. You can format your hard drive and burn your house down if you want without worrying about losing stuff; well, except the house. And maybe the wife. Or you go to prison 20 years, and it'll still be there. If some of you want to go to prison. I know of one.
Here's a complicated idea for the extra-extra-paranoid: You send just one letter by one letter of the encrypted key, into dozens of fake addresses, to which you send bitcoins you got from an exchange and not from the main wallet, and only you know the correct addresses/order with the data, because of a pattern in the other letters. For example, the 2nd letter of the 1st data part is the 1st letter of your password when it's hashed. The 3rd letter of the 2nd data part is the 2nd letter of your hashed password. Ect... And it's not true for the other parts. So you know the order, but not someone without the password. It can go like this for many parts, then maybe if you run out of letters you send through a different wallet. All other characters are misleading except the 1st one, or last one, being the key character. And you also send money to other fake wallets which are purely misleading. Even if a flaw in AES was found and it could be broken instantly, an attacker would have to find the correct combination even before the strong encryption brute-forcing, he can't even know if he has the right combination, and that can be a big number of combinations. You can do the math. It's exponential stuff, I think. That's something I just thought of quickly, and I don't know much about any of that. Someone can find better. (Maybe, or maybe not, there's something about the encryption output which makes it so we can find the order back without password, then we'd need some kind of trick to obfuscate the position or nature of key characters but I won't spend any more time on something likely to be wrong/uninteresting).
tl;dr: "It works by sending some minimum amount to fake addresses, with data encoded in the addresses. "
Point is, once we know we can store data in the block chain, there are plenty of ways to make it so we're never locked out from the main address.
Well, if you can remember the password.
I hope this was useful to someone!
Goodbye
